Chapter 22 – Which male vixen managed to captivate you?!
Xing Zhongwan decided to teach Qi Yun a lesson and pulled his own mattress closer towards the door.
Although Qi Yun couldn’t see this, judging from the sounds he heard, he could probably guess what Xing Zhongwan was doing.
“I was wrong, please come back.” Qi Yun felt helpless and Xing Zhongwan snorted, “Shut up, I don’t want to listen to you now.”
Qi Yun helplessly furrowed his eyebrows, “I will shut up if you come back. Going so far away… if I call you at night. What will you do if you can’t hear me?”
Xing Zhongwan opened his quilt and was about to lie down, “Just yell louder.”
Qi Yun lowered his head. He looked like he had just suffered a great loss. Xing Zhongwan lifted his quilt again. Looks like I really owed you a lot in your previous life1This is a common chinese saying. In our culture, we believe in reincarnation. So when you find yourself doing a lot for someone else, perhaps you might’ve owed them a lifetime’s worth of debt, which carried forward to your current life.. Xing Zhongwan pulled the mattress back to its original position and got inside the quilt, “I came back. You can sleep now.”
Qi Yun said helplessly, “I’m still sitting up, can you help me?”
Xing Zhongwan’s face was dark but he turned around, “Aren’t you capable of that yourself? You weren’t afraid of the pain when you fell down today.” After saying that, he got up to tuck Qi Yun into bed and even covered him with the quilt.
While he was doing so, he also turned off the lamp.
The room was silent and Xing Zhongwan’s soft breathing soon filled the room. Qi Yun previously suggested that he should place another small bed in the bedroom but Xing Zhongwan refused without even thinking twice about it, saying that he was fine with lying on the ground. Qi Yun knew in his heart that Xing Zhongwan was just worried that he would bump into the bed if the room was too crowded as his eyes could not see.
Qi Yun dropped his hand and felt around for a while before finding Xing Zhongwan’s hand and holding it for a while. His skin was smooth and the fingers were long and well maintained. Qi Yun’s hand gradually moved up and across from Xing Zhongwan’s neck to his face. He brushed Xing Zhongwan’s chin, lips, bridge of nose, eyes, eyebrows and forehead for a bit before Qi Yun’s mind had a very vague outline of his appearance. Although he hadn’t seen it with his own eyes, he was certain that Xing Zhongwan was very beautiful and that his facial features were very delicate.
Qi Yun slowly retracted his hand before looking at the ceiling with both his eyes wide open.
No matter who you might be, since you have come to me, I will never let you go.
The bright morning sun shone on Xing Zhongwan’s face. He frowned and opened his eyes as his fuzzy consciousness gradually became clearer. He took a deep breath and sat up slowly. Out of habit, he looked in Qi Yun’s direction. He was still sleeping quietly. His skin was pale and almost translucent as the morning light hit his face. Xing Zhongwan stretched out and yawned before his eyes stopped at Qi Yun’s crotch where there was a suspicious bulge…
Xing Zhongwan turned his head and coughed twice, all men understood this phenomena very well. Brother, you are very energetic, haha. Xing Zhongwan felt that he couldn’t bear to stay in this room anymore so he got up, quickly packed up, and quietly returned to his room on the second floor.
As the door was gently closed, Qi Yun on the bed opened his eyes as his right hand slowly reached towards his crotch, his face expressionless.
When eating breakfast, neither of them spoke. The dining room was quiet and scary. Today, Xing Zhongwan didn’t feel like he wanted to speak much and Qi Yun was even more unlikely to take the initiative to speak first. The servants on the side were all trembling, hoping to become invisible.
Xing Zhongwan slowly ate sandwiches. He was in a strange mood. Turning his head, he glanced at Qi Yun who was holding the bowl steadily and eating the porridge in small sips. Suddenly, it was as if he had telepathy, he looked at Xing Zhongwan, “Wanwan, are you looking at me?”
The sandwich in Xing Zhongwan’s hand fell on the table with a thud. Qi Yun, you’re actually not blind, are you?
Just as he was about to pick it up, a group of people arrived at the door.
Without a word, they walked towards Xing Zhongwan. A hand then landed on his shoulders, “Miss Xing, the Madam wants to see you.”
Qi Yun paused with the bowl in his hand. He had a rare expression of panic on his face, “Go back and tell mother if there is anything, she should come to me. Don’t trouble Wanwan.”
The person’s face became cold and didn’t leave any room for Qi Yun’s pride, “Third young master, Madam only wants to see Miss Xing. Naturally, she will send Miss Xing back after she is done. Let’s go, Miss Xing.”
Xing Zhongwan was put in a tight spot. He frowned and said to Qi Yun, “I’m alright. I’ll be back soon.”
Qi Yun shifted uncomfortably and the bowl in his hand was not properly placed back on the table. It fell onto the marble floor and shattered into pieces…
“Wanwan!” Qi Yun’s face was pale. He knew that he wanted to stop what was happening but his legs were too weak. He stretched out his hand to hold Wanwan back. Xing Zhongwan smiled, “I’m fine. Just wait.” Qi Yun’s hands came back empty as the sound of tables and chairs dragging along the floor reached his ears. He could feel Xing Zhongwan’s breathing and body warmth getting further and further away from him. Qi Yun dived forward but the wheelchair was unstable so he fell to the ground. The servants around couldn’t help but gasp. Qi Yun clenched his fists tightly against the smooth ground. The sound of his nails against the floor was grating and his hands were popping with veins. Qi Yun’s eyes were bloodshot as he raised his head with much difficulty, calling out for Wanwan.
Xing Zhongwan was escorted forcefully out of the villa. He said lightly, “Let go, I can walk on my own.” The person holding him obviously didn’t want to let go so Xing Zhongwan took a deep breath. With a quick backhanded smack, the person fell to the ground. A straight jab came at him from the back but Xing Zhongwan managed to avoid it, grabbing the person’s arm, he forcefully twisted it. A crisp sound followed by a painful scream followed. Xing Zhongwan then kicked the person down and dusted off his shoulders, “Laozi wants to solve this peacefully. Don’t force me to do this. I hate strangers touching me the most.”
He narrowed his eyes as a trace of anger flashed through them. From nearby, a black car stopped in front of him and a person came out, applauding Xing Zhongwan, “I’ve heard of you before. Only now have I finally got to meet the famous Second Young Master Xing. “
Xing Zhongwan looked at the person who just arrived and interrupted him, “The Xing family has not had two young masters for a long time now. Go back and ask Xing Zhengping, does the Xing family have such a person?”
The man bowed slightly, “Whether it is Second Young Master Xing or Xing Zhongwan, the Madam wants to see you. It was us who were rude just now. Please come with me.”
Xing Zhongwan took out a lollipop from his pocket, “What should I call you?”
The man smiled, “I am the personal secretary of Madam Qi, you can call me Lao Hu.”
Xing Zhongwan patted the dust on the trench coat. Lao Hu wasn’t just a common lapdog, he was also a sly old fox.
Xing Zhongwan originally thought that Madam Qi would find a hidden place to see him, but he did not expect it to be at the Qi family’s estate. Xing Zhongwan got out of the car and looked at the door of Qi’s house. He looked around but didn’t know if that trash can from that time was still there.
Xing Zhongwan was taken to the living room on the third floor. Led by Lao Hu to the study, he was informed that Madam Qi would arrive in a while. Xing Zhongwan looked around boredly and found a few photos on the desk. When he walked over, he saw Qi Yun. Qi Yun in the photo was wearing a black suit with a cold temperament. Those eyes looked straight at the camera without a trace of emotion. Xing Zhongwan thought that the photographer back then was probably sweating in fear. He left the desk and the row of cabinets behind were filled with lots of awards and certificates, apart from the occasional rows of obscure books. Xing Zhongwan looked around more before realizing that this was Qi Yun’s study when he was still living in the Qi’s house. It was no wonder he felt cold as soon as he came in. The room seemed to have taken after its owner.
“I’ve wanted to meet you for a long time now. We finally meet.” A lady’s voice suddenly came from behind. It was cold, utterly cold. Xing Zhongwan looked back and saw a woman in a red suit. Her hair was neatly combed behind her and she looked very young as her figure was well maintained. You could tell by just looking at her face that she must’ve been related to Qi Yun since they looked so alike.
It’s just that Qi Yun looked ethereal and hard to get close to, while the woman in front of him was beautiful but had features that were too sharp; for instance, her eyes were sharp like a knife.
Xing Zhongwan smiled, “Hello, Madam Qi.”
A tall woman in the luggage waiting area was talking on the phone. There were people around her secretly watching her.
The woman was tall with her hair cut very short. The sides of her hair on both sides were shaved off while the top of her head was dyed in a bright burgundy shade. She wore a pair of sunglasses on her high-bridged nose and a low-breasted, black vest under her small leather jacket. There were also a pair of straight and slender legs in fishnet stockings under her short skirt. The high heels that she wore were more than ten centimeters high, making her stand out more from the crowd.
“Sissy, I’m here waiting for my luggage. You can rest assured that I will take care of your old professor.”
She chewed gum in her mouth before suddenly taking off her glasses and casting a wink at the man who was staring at her. The man took a deep breath and almost fainted.
Cheng Zhengzhe was still working overtime late at night, holding a mobile phone in one hand and a document in the other, “Xue Qing, keep a low profile when you go back this time and don’t cause any trouble for Lao Xing. Come back immediately when you settle things there and take good care of Professor Gao.”
Xue Qing hummed before hanging up the phone.
She took out her mobile phone and sent a text message. Chen Ying, I brought the person. Decide on a time and send me the location.
Xue Qing slipped her phone in the bag and put on her sunglasses again.
Lao Xing, Lao Xing. I want to see which male vixen managed to captivate you and I want to thank him properly for stealing away the scrooge that you are and letting potentially thousands of innocent men and women live their love lives properly.
T/N: Hey guys! Hope you’re well. Here’s another update.
I really love strong, powerful woman allies in danmei/BL stories. I’ve read of petty, homophobic female rivals doing everything they can to make sure that the MC and ML don’t get together more times than I can count. It makes me a little sad. After all, I feel that it kinda gives women a bad rep. Well, they DO exist in reality sometimes but the kind-hearted, smart and strong female friend trope needs more love okay?
Xue Qing’s super feisty and we’ll get to see more of her in the future ᕙ(`▿´)ᕗ
Consider liking the writer’s work or buying a kofi for me <3 who knows, might update a lil faster hehe
Thank you for translating! This is so fun, can’t wait to see Xue Qing and I’m so intrigued about XZW’s friends and past! What is this business he’s apart of? Why are all of his friends so badass? I can’t wait to see him take of his mother in law as well! So many questions I have! Not to mention, When will his hubby figure out he’s a man and start the papapa?
I feel the exact same way about XZW and his friends. And don’t worry, they get more and more badass with every passing chapter. There will also be plenty of funny moments where they tease XZW and XZW gets angry. Isn’t he’s just the cutest?
