There was no doubt that he would certainly have died if he was run over by a car like this. No matter how you looked at it, Ye Chen should have his head bashed and battered by now, dead with grievances remaining.

But nothing had happened to him. He was standing steadily in the hotel’s lobby, as if the scene that had just happened was just a dream. He didn’t get out of the hotel, didn’t see the car, didn’t get hit and wasn’t sent flying. c9ZYR1

But his life points had been deducted!

Ye Chen stood still for a long time before he said in a surprised yet calm voice, “I did four random missions in total; one was when I asked Ren Jing for a good night kiss, the reward was one life point; the other was to embrace and sleep with Ren Jing for two hours and the reward was two life points; the third was to wear the clothes Ren Jing bought for me and the reward was one life point; the fourth one was to let Ren Jing sleep on my lap for one hour, the reward was one life point. Added up with the weekly mission, I obviously had six life points with me. Why was there only one life point left after you deducted four life points?”

Death system, “……”

Is now the right time to be concerned about such things!? QM5lOG

Ye Chen’s voice was steady when he asked the death system, “I didn’t miscalculate, right?”

Death system, “………………”

Ye Chen raised his eyebrows. gc4dwU

The death system finally said, “You truly didn’t……”

Ye Chen added, “That’s a relief. That means I have two life points left, right?”

Death system responded, “Yes.”

After a long pause, Ye Chen said under his breath, “Thank you.” yD9VSf

Death system, “!!!”

Why is it that it somehow couldn’t see that sweet and naive person anymore!?

 

Ye Chen just stayed standing in the hotel (lobby) for awhile. The air-conditioner was blowing strongly into him, but he felt as if he was standing on top of a raging fire, his feet burning. mbWHGg

“Bang!” A loud sound could be heard from outside. Everyone in the hotel suddenly went into a state of shock. The security guards rushed out to check the peculiar noise.

Ye Chen didn’t move at all. He had already known what was going on even without going out.

The death system had saved him, but what should have happened had happened.

The car accelerated quickly like how it was supposed to.

This was originally planned to be a ‘very unexpected’ murder.

It was probably because the driver had mistaken the brake for accelerator. The moment he stepped on the ‘brake’, the car hit Ye Chen and killed him. The driver himself would not have been able to stop the car and hit the door. If that was how it had happened, the dead could not bear witness, so things would be settled cleanly just like that.

  dbXyKp

It wasn’t surprising that noises came from people around.

“Is that person crazy? He drove straight ahead.”

“Did he perhaps confuse the accelerator with the brake?”

“It’s too tragic that the speed of the car killed him on the spot.” mqbt2s

The thin voices of people whispering were exactly the same with what Ye Chen had guessed.

Ye Chen took a deep breath. All that he could feel was a chill from his heart. He felt a fire burning outside, yet it was freezing cold inside. They collided together, but it calmed him down instead.

The death system knew what was in his mind, so it simply sighed and didn’t say anything.

  GyfIBc

Around that time, Xiao Liu came. He parked his car outside and ran inside first. The moment he saw that Ye Chen was safe, he let out a relieved sigh.

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

Ye Chen said, “I’d like to return to my room first.”

Xiao Liu immediately followed him.

When they returned to the hotel room, Xiao Liu asked nervously, “Brother Chen, do you want to drink some water?” yrNsk

Ye Chen, “Yes.”

Xiao Liu poured warm water to a glass and handed it to Ye Chen.

 

Ye Chen drank the water, but it wasn’t really useful. The ice in his heart still wouldn’t melt, and the fire from outside wasn’t extinguished yet. qTdfwb

Xiao Liu still had a lingering fear inside his heart as he said, “Fortunately you were vigilant and didn’t step outside.”

Ye Chen’s lips moved a little, but he didn’t say anything in the end.

Since Ye Lan dared to do it, he wouldn’t leave any trace behind. coidWC

Xiao Liu didn’t dare to say anything more. It could be said that he was the first person to know about this. No one knew about this, but he had known from the start.

Because Ye Chen was the one who asked him to check on that incident.

 

Half a month ago, his Lamborghini was tampered with. Ye Chen hadn’t driven it since then, he didn’t even use his driver anymore. Xiao Liu had to do everything on his own. Whenever Xiao Liu drove his car, he would lock it in the garage upon using it. Not even his girlfriend was allowed to touch it. This was to prevent the same thing from happening again. E8cHNO

From that day on, Ye Chen never acted by himself anymore. He wouldn’t even go out to eat and drink with his disreputable friends (alone).

Occasionally, he would bring a bodyguard with him when he went out by himself. Ye Chen was very cautious and solemn. He feared that because he didn’t die once, the other party might try to kill him again.

But he was carried away today. After all, nothing had happened for so many days, and it was quite improbable to have another ‘clueless accident’.

In addition, thinking about how he would be going to the southern part with Ren Jing and the wonderful journey later, he couldn’t wait to get out of the hotel and unexpectedly put himself in danger. BociDf

 

If it was not for the death system, he would have died.

Xiao Liu said, “Brother Chen, this matter… Don’t you think it’s time to talk about this with your grandfather?”

Ye Chen suddenly turned around to look at him, then he said in an exceptionally serious voice, “You mustn’t!” kZypjA

Xiao Liu seemed to have startled him a fair amount, but this time his heart was thumping as he said, “This was already the second time……”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

Ye Chen wriggled his brows and said, “This matter shouldn’t be bluntly spoken.”

 

Ye Lan wanted him to die. Of course Ye Chen wouldn’t just sit passively on his end, but he would need to at least wait until his grandpa’s body condition had become stable first. 4N97T8

The death system said, “But hiding it like this won’t solve the problem.”

How would Ye Chen not know about that?

Ye Lan was bold but cautious when he did something, and was absolutely resolute when he decided on something. Even from these two ‘accidents’, there was absolutely no evidence that they could be related to him. Although Ye Chen clearly knew that it was Ye Lan who did them, Ye Chen couldn’t point his finger at Ye Lan.

Ye Chen could have told his grandpa and his parents about this matter, but he definitely should not do so, at least for now. g4cdR

If he said it now, it wouldn’t solve the problem, it would just make things worse.

His grandpa would definitely believe him, but at the same time, it was just going to break his grandpa’s heart.

 

Ye Chen was his grandpa’s grandson, and so was Ye Lan. pylGwC

The two grandsons causing so much fuss to the point of death, the old man wouldn’t be able to stand seeing them like that.

Especially since Ye Chen’s uncle, Ye Qing Nian, had passed away, Ye Lan was his only relative by blood. Even though he was an illegitimate child, he was still a child of the Ye Family and his grandpa’s grandson.

Furthermore, Grandpa Ye owed Ye Lan something in the depth of his heart.

If you're reading this, this translation is stolen. Please support our translators at chrysanthemumgarden.com

  7wnpMj

At that time, the old man wouldn’t acknowledge Ye Lan’s mother no matter what, even to the extent of not wanting to see her face.

Ye Lan’s mother made a lot of fuss about this. Ye Qing Nian was so credulous and pliable that she could even incite him to make Ye Chen’s aunt infertile.

After knowing what had happened, the old man was really mad and cruelly punished Ye Qing Nian. He cut off his income and expelled him out of the house.

The three of them had a hard time for several years. Later, Ye Lan’s mother commited suicide. Ye Qing Nian brought Ye Lan back to Ye Family’s house. The old man let them stayed there, but he was still filled with anger and wouldn’t look at them at all. RsHf6y

A few years later, Ye Qing Nian had lung cancer. He passed away even before he reached forty. Old man Ye aged in the blink of an eye, his health declined rapidly.

He had always disliked Ye Lan, but later felt that this child was really pitiful. He also thought that it was his fault for not settling Ye Lan down properly, so he subconsciously hoped that Ye Lan could grow up well.

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

 

In this state of mind, if Ye Chen let the old man knew that Ye Lan was actually rotten deep into his bones that he was insane enough to deliberately murder Ye Chen…… The old man wouldn’t be able to stand it. 96OmR4

He could bear this burden himself.

If his grandpa was still healthy like before, then Ye Chen wouldn’t have worried and would just tell him directly. Or it was better to say that if grandpa was still the same as before, Ye Lan wouldn’t have gone crazy until this point.

But grandpa was already old, he had aged, he wasn’t who he was anymore.

With grandpa’s physical condition right now, there were some truths which he should not know. Uuz9EF

 

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

Ye Chen took a deep breath. He couldn’t tell his parents about this, either.

His parents loved him so much that they would shed all pretense of cordiality for his safety, regardless of what the consequences might be. Ye Lan was only aiming at him now and wasn’t capable to do more.

But if his parents knew about this, they would persistently protect him. When that happened, the situation could be more out of control than ever. 8dN46L

 

When there is nothing to lose, there is nothing to fear.

Ye Lan had nothing left to lose, but Ye Chen had them.

He was afraid that his grandpa’s condition would become worse, afraid that his parents would face dangers. They were much more important to him than his own life. kp9HdE

 

Death system stated, “Killing Ye Lan would be the most straightforward method.”

Ye Chen said, “I’m not him.”

Actually, what the death system said was the big truth. It couldn’t be more true anymore. 8HrO4V

The current Ye Lan would fight ‘till his last breath, normal legal action wouldn’t work on him. If Ye Chen was ruthless enough, he could also have Ye Lan experience ‘accidental death’. That way, he wouldn’t need to fear any future dangers at all.

But Ye Chen couldn’t do it. If he did that, he wouldn’t be who he was anymore.

The death system was about to say something, but it faltered. sNXxY2

Ye Chen said vigilantly, “What I want to say is, you wouldn’t give me a mission to ‘tell Ren Jing about this problem’, right?”

Death system answered, “You need to save more life points as soon as possible, right? If I really gave you that mission, you wouldn’t do it anyway.”

Ye Chen blinked his eyes. “You sounded like you won’t give that mission to me……”

The death system gave him a supercilious look. tqoTjJ

The two of them couldn’t reach a tacit understanding, thus they dropped the subject.

 

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

What Ye Chen had in mind was simple, he didn’t want to tell Ren Jing about this matter. No one would be willing to let someone they liked know about such a dirty matter, it would affect their mood too much.

The death system’s opinion was more violent: If Ren Jing knew, then someone could do what Ye Chen couldn’t do. V3WaID

This was a lawful society, it was better not to touch some bottom lines.

 

The death system asked, “Why does Ye Lan want to kill you that much?”

Ye Chen kept quiet. vqt1NP

Death system asked, “Was it simply because of envy? Would he go so far as to kill you (because of that)?” Moreover, if it was just envy, why would he only want to murder him recently?

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

Ye Chen said, “Half a month ago, it was the day of remembrance of my uncle. We met back then.”

Ye Chen paused for a moment before he continued, “That time… He probably thought I knew about something.”

Death system asked, “What did you know?” pmEDJf

Ye Chen was in a trance for a while before he spoke slowly, “For instance, the cause of his mother’s death.”

The death system was startled, “You……”

 

Ye Chen, “Actually, I didn’t know at first, but now I do.” It could be considered that Ye Lan’s act made him confirm about this. sKR1uk

Death system finally understood, then it said, “No wonder he wanted to murder you.”

Ye Chen breathed in deeply and said, “I should save ten life points first, then I should recover grandpa’s physical condition as quickly as possible.”

 

If it was not for death system, he would have fallen into the road of disaster. No matter what he did, it would have gone wrong. Wrong…… If death system didn’t exist, he would have died half a month ago. YbAThf

But fortunately he had the death system, so he had the choice to keep on living.

He had to stay calm. This problem could be solved properly. There was no need to let things get out of hand just because of panic and fear.

Right at that moment, the doorbell rang. Ye Chen snapped out of his thoughts. Xiao Liu said first, “I’ll open the door.” 5Fg21o

Xiao Liu was still afraid. He feared that something would happen to Ye Chen again.

Ye Chen smiled and said, “It’s alright already, things were not that severe.”

Xiao Liu had seen who it was from the peephole, “It’s Movie King Ren.”

Ye Chen said, “Let me open it.” 1Iq5W4

 

The moment he opened the door, Ren Jing immediately embraced him.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

Ye Chen was startled.

Ren Jing embraced him for a long time. Ye Chen would like to say something at first, but he ended up not being able to say anything in the end. He had been very calm since the accident that not even a tiny bit of fear could be seen in his face. 4epjnQ

But now, upon being embraced tightly like this, he suddenly felt his hands and feet were cold. It was the accumulation of chilliness and coldness deep down in his heart that spread around, which wasn’t a bad thing.

 

Ren Jing’s voice trembled as he said, “Chen Chen.”

Ye Chen’s nose was sore and his eyes were burning hot. 3oIJdk

Ren Jing didn’t say anything else, only whispering his name.

Xiao Liu who stood on the other side wished that he was an invisible person…… Well, even though he wasn’t invisible, he seemed to be regarded as an invisible person already.

But he was puzzled. How was it that Movie King Ren seemed like he knew something? FjCzrW

 

In fact, Ren Jing didn’t know anything at all. If he knew, things might have run wildly into an uncontrollable direction.

Ren Jing was about to come back (to the hotel) to pick Ye Chen up. On his way back, his heart suddenly jumped, an unspeakable fear rushed up from behind like a poisonous snake, seizing his whole nerves in an instant.

He could see Ye Chen, soaked in a pool of blood, his fair skin lost its color, his beautiful eyes now filled with helplessness, his feeble chest stopped breathing, and what was more, he saw his rosy lips were no longer red in color and were turning purple…… FdmB K

It was just a flash, but it felt like a nightmare wrapping around his head.

 

Ren Jing asked the driver to stop at the roadside, then he sat at the driver’s seat and rushed back to the hotel in an unimaginable speed.

The accident downstairs made him frown and he walked faster. He rushed upstairs and pressed the doorbell. The moment he saw Ye Chen, he felt as if his fear of gangrene vanished in a split second. NHwgpd

Ren Jing embraced Ye Chen in his arms, unable to put his emotions into words. He could only call out his name in a soft voice.

 

Ye Chen asked the death system, “What happened to Ren Jing?”

If you're reading this, this translation is stolen. Please support our translators at chrysanthemumgarden.com

Death system answered, “It was probably a psychological link between lovers. He saw the moment of your ‘death’.” KaCYHu

Ye Chen opened his eyes wide and said, “How could that be?”

Death system responded, “Even I exist. What would be impossible?”

Ye Chen, “……”

He was unable to refute anymore. i0W4N3

 

Soon, Ye Chen’s heart which had been cold and quiet because of the gloom now warmed up again, then he thought: Are lovers with telepathic connections considered rare in this world?

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

The death system rolled its eyes as it thought: He believed it!

Ren Jing let go of Ye Chen, then he asked under his breath, “Did I scare you?” 1ow8SP

Ye Chen asked him instead, “What happened to you?”

The moment Ren Jing was about to say something, the death system’s sound could be heard in Ye Chen’s head, “Random mission: Continue having physical contact with Ren Jing, reward will be generated according to the duration: three hours for one life point and so on, up to a maximum of nine hours.”


Author’s Note

The author has something to say:  dazGux

After thinking about it all night, I still don’t think it was right.

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

The plot didn’t change, but the way I described things was very problematic.

In fact, there are different opinions about writing, but I’ve always believed the writer’s style is extremely important. If their style wasn’t well thought out, even reasonable things would become unreasonable, even if it was logical, it would become illogical.

Even though I wrote that Ye Chen was “sweet and naive”, I have no intention of treating him unfairly. Upon writing him, I hoped that he would be well. The characters that I loved also loved you, so I hoped that all of us could be happy. QLPBhy

It’s impossible for me to change things up without changing the settings, but some of them will be explained later in the next chapters. I’ll talk about them in advance, consider the readers’ perspective, and let everyone know more. With this, I hope everyone could make a more appropriate judgement.

Please don’t fight, I really loved all of you, I hope that everyone is well so that you could read joyfully and be happy everyday. That way, I would feel very content. Smooches!

 

Translator’s Note 3gOkUH

potats here! Good to see you again this week, hope everyone has been doing well!

There is a ‘special’ author’s note for this chapter, and the author deleted the title (it was written as ‘rewritten chapter’). That was probably because of people’s comments in JJWXC I think (I barely check comments there because of this, too). I’ll also voice a bit of my opinion about this in the spoiler tag below.

Back to the chapter~ Hhnnngggg, their hugs are so cute and painful at the same time cries;; o(〒﹏〒)o They’re truly in love with each other I could confirm it already (ಥ﹏ಥ). Also, Ye Chen is such a gud boi I wanna hug and pet him and tell him he’s been doing a good job… ( ; ω ; )

Welp, that’s it for this week. See you guys next week, take care! xnKMRP

Rants (kinda?)

While I know that everyone has the right to say their opinions, I think it’s still not a good idea to just blurt everything out, especially ‘negative’ ones. I’ve bumped into someone who disagree with me regarding this matter, saying that I was a terrible person because I’m ‘limiting’ people, and that everyone has the right to voice their opinions out. But here’s a thing: I think it’s better for someone to restrain themselves than to voice their ‘negative’ opinions that could made people feel uncomfortable. I know, you have the right, I have the right, everyone have their rights to do whatever they want, but I think there should be a ‘limit’ on the ‘rights’ we own. So someone who prefer to stay quiet and not causing any fuss is worse than someone who voices their ‘negative’ opinions, just because ‘eveRyOnE haS tHeiR riGHt tO sAY whAt tHEy wAnT’? Man, I’ve never heard such BS before.

…Sorry, I ended up being OOT and even swear in the end orz. But really, please, please, think carefully before you’re about to do something, especially commenting. I’m not telling anyone to agree nor doing things according to whatever I’ve mentioned here, because I’d be ‘confining’ people’s so-called rights, right? Well, do consider the creators’ feelings when you’re about to complain and whine about whatever they did (here comes about critique, but I don’t want to continue this further because I’d stray too far away) in the future, though. Many authors, translators, and creators alike quit what they’re doing because of people’s horseback opinions, y’know. Just sayin’.

Translator's Note

This is an idiom which means to attack someone by hitting them hard, or to start doing something quickly, with a lot of energy.

Translator's Note

Gangrene is a rare disease (I think?) that occurs when body tissue dies. It is caused by a loss of blood supply due to underlying illness, injury, and/or infection. Fingers, toes, and limbs are most often affected, but gangrene can also occur inside the body, damaging organs and muscles. Here, I think author is trying to say that Ren Jing was afraid that Ye Chen might suffer gangrene like what he feared.

  1. Agree.. Because that’s “people could voice anything they want”.. people negative comments become unfiltered ..making people breath spike to each other ..even worse when they’re cursed someone, they’re just said “it’s my right to said whatever what I want”.. Don’t realize they’re word can trigger something irreversible..

    Thanks for the chapter

    • Ooh.. I forgot..it’s seems System has protective feeling for MC, so from the perspective of system if MC can’t do it… There’s other that’s can do the dirty job.. Like ML..

      So maybe this mental image are sent by system right??

  2. I think I get what you’re saying. I think it’s mostly about thinking before saying. Just because you have the right to say your opinion doesn’t mean you have to be a jerk.

    Like, if it’s a negative opinion, instead of coming with a “it’s shit cause I think so”, try to say why you didn’t like something, constructive criticism. Everything revolves around it.

    If you think something is bad, saying it’s shit won’t make it suddenly becomes better. If you don’t clearly say what it is that you didn’t like the other person won’t be able to work on it.

  3. I think the next point scenario will have some beep 😂

    Anw, according to the rants, all I gotta say is. Yup, definitely right. Coz positivity still blooms the creativity of people ❤ Criticisms may be helpful but do it in a nicer way~ Aaaand, thank you for the translations 😊

  4. Or rather, people don’t understand the difference between having the rights to do something, being obliged to do that something and being humane in doing that something.

    Even if you have the rights to do it, you still have to think of whether it is right to do it.

    Also, having the rights to do it is NOT equal to being obliged to do it just because you can. Of course everyone HAVE THE RIGHT to choose whether they do something or not.

    Being triggered by the frequent misinterpretations and misunderstandings of the common people aside, Ren Jing and Ye Chen are truly connected by fate!! For RJ to “see” the death of Ye Chen even when the Death System has reversed(?) time is truly remarkable.

    Thanks for the chapter!! 0w0)/

  5. Tus derechos se acaban cuando pasas a llevar los derechos de otros.

    Thanks por el capítulo, muy bueno.

  6. Thank you for the chapter! ^ ^

    Sometimes it is horrifying how rude people can be online, and if you dare point it out, they will insult you freely and then act all self-righteous about it.😟

    But I feel it’s a pity when the authors let reader comments affect their work. Readers who are reading chapter by chapter with time gaps can never see or understand the complete picture or ‘author’s intent’ to be able to criticize it honestly. It’s literally impossible even for a literature professor. 👩‍🏫

    Art belongs to its creator when it is still in the process of being created. What right have we as readers to interfere in this creative process? We can comment all we like but we can/should only affect the interpretations of the work and not the actual work itself. This is how literature normally works. But sadly in this kind of serialization authors cannot resist looking at how their work is being perceived and end up trying to please everyone by involving readers in their work. #Authorlife🔥

    That said, I’m just happy I don’t have to look at rude comments on this website. 😅

  7. Hello there! I’m so sorry I couldn’t reply individually and took so long; health has been hindering my life now T___T

    Just wanna say thank you to everyone for voicing your opinions out! Thank you for taking your time to read what I have to say ^__^. I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought so.

    Lastly, like always, thank you for reading my translation! (。・ω・。)ノ♡
