Fangirling Chinese Novels

Stewed Squid with Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) — Chapter 20



Tong Nian is a little confused on her next steps and seeks advice. And he “shows up” in the most unexpected of places!

Chapter 20 – Breakup Not On Schedule ⊙▽⊙!

The next day, Dt left the hotel where his grandfather was staying and returned to the club’s gaming house[1]. There, he found a dozen or more boys, all of them dressed in the team’s short-sleeve uniforms, hopping and rubbing at their arms as they did some warm-up exercises on the spot where they stood. When demo caught sight of Dt, his eyes immediately reddened. “Captain!” Regardless of whether they were older or younger than him, all of them swarmed toward him, feeling as if they had finally found someone who could be their refuge.

Needless to say, the person inside the room at the very end of the corridor must have been in an extremely bad mood the previous night.

Wordlessly, Dt nodded.

Walking directly to the end of the corridor, he pushed open the door.

Inside, he discovered the floor of the room littered with a variety of chocolate wrappers, fruit candy wrappers… Anyway, it was simply all sorts of candy… No lights were on. Right at this moment, in his computer, Gun was absolutely dominating over his opponents and torturing them to death. Without even turning his head, he said, “You’re back?”

Obviously, the only one who would dare push open his room door during this time was that same person who had had the audacity to sell him out.

Dt’s eyes once again made a scan around the room, and then, without saying anything, he turned and left.

A candy was hurled out, whizzing straight past Dt’s ear with a whoosh as it flew and smashed into the door directly across the hall. Outside the doorway, everyone who had followed along to eavesdrop shuddered, and instantly, the entire group jogged away to do their morning run. In contrast, the one who had nearly been smacked by the candy, Dt, showed no superfluous expressions. Even the look in his eyes had not shifted. Pulling Gun’s door shut behind him, he simply pulled out his own room card and, with a swipe, opened that door across the hallway.

Catch up on some Z’s.

The man inside the room sat on his chair, his body leaning backwards into the seatback. He once again flipped through the itinerary his assistant had brought him. The primary squad would be assembling on the fifth day of the new lunar year and heading to Sanya. One day after that, the entire K&K troop would also arrive in Sanya, and then he, Dt, and grunt would fly to the United States to participate in a StarCraft II offline tournament.

The arrangements were very apt.

After looking over that paper again and again for several times, he at last returned to that first question that had popped into his mind when he saw this itinerary.

Should he tell the little girl that he would be out of country?


In these past twenty-nine years, only two promises had ever been made from his lips. The first was, back then, to be Team Solo’s investor, and the second was to allow her to decide when would be the time of their breakup.

He had given in, perhaps, because she had unconditionally believed his explanation.

That absolute load of crap of an explanation—that it was only because of Dt’s request that he had told everyone she and he were a couple.

Apart from fatigue, due to a night without sleep, and bad mood, written on his gorgeous face were also some irritability and frustration over being unable to control the future. Since last night, he had felt a sense of foreboding, that this one instance of softheartedness and giving in would end up bringing him countless troubles.

And now… this was the first of those troubles.

Like every year, during the first couple days of the new lunar year, her parents brought her around to pay New Year’s greetings.

Every now and then, as she took advantage of the times when the adults were all exchanging pleasantries and chatting idly to sit down, she would over and over ponder on what Gun had said. By the evening of the Lunar New Year’s second day, she finally could contain herself no longer and began a quiet discussion with Soy Milk, who had also been dragged out to pay New Year’s greetings.

Soy Milk listened to her recount her story from beginning to end. It had even more exciting ups and downs than those blockbuster movies that had been released in celebration of the Lunar New Year!

Terrified in Three Steps and The Taking of Yalong Bay at Night[2], don’t even bother fighting it out to compete. You totally don’t even come close in being worth watching!

“It means he’s interested in you, of course!” By the time Soy Milk listened to the point in the story describing the two’s conversation the previous night, he finally could not restrain himself and shot up onto his feet, drawing the gazes of all the elders in the home… Straightaway, he shirked back again, sitting down and leaning in close to sigh in her ear, “Let me tell you, you really don’t understand men. Really, you don’t understand them. Oh, you. Let me, this man who has ‘watched the many sailboats a-comin’ and a-goin’[3]’[experienced many loves, but none of them was the real one], explain things to you.”

“All you’ve had are secret crushes on seven girls, you know?” She could not help exposing the actual truth.

Where did he get his so-called “watched the many sailboats”?

“Seven! My blood and tear-stained history, eh! Each one, I used a different way to profess my love, and each one, I was rejected in a different way.” Soy Milk looked at her with a pained expression. “Have you heard of the saying, ‘prolonged illness makes a doctor of a patient’? I’ve had secret crushes for so long they’ve brought about this result.”

Doubtful, she held on to her reservations.

“Anyway, this is what it is. Him telling you to decide when to break up is actually the exact opposite of what he wants. Men all want face. Here you are pursuing him. Of course he doesn’t want to set aside his pride to tell you, ‘I don’t want to break up,’ right? So he’s just using this roundabout way to hint it to you.”


She still was unwilling to completely believe Soy Milk.

When she returned home, she called Blueberry to consult this woman who had also done the pursuing of her techie guy.

“Turning the act into reality! He wants to turn this act you guys are doing into reality.”

… The person on the other end of the line was even more stoked than she was…

Was it true?

Hugging a gigantic Winnie the Pooh, Tong Nian sat in front of her computer and fell into deep thought.

If… he really was just too embarrassed to say it and did actually want to try being together, then, should she still do the breakup?

She rested her chin on the bear’s shoulder and pulled on its furry paw, feeling unsettled for a long time. Out of the blue, she remembered the song that he had diverted his attention away to listen to that night. The lyrics… were very similar to the rumours she had found online regarding his retirement from professional gaming ten years ago. As her thoughts turned to this, she tossed her bear aside and immediately did a search. Following along with the lyrics, she listened to the song several times.

Many images seemed to be hovering before her eyes, ready to vividly emerge: how, amid the enthusiastic applause of gamers and gaming enthusiasts, he had stood and addressed the crowd with his greetings; how, with his teammates, he had won championship after championship and taken spot after spot on world rankings…

Suddenly, overnight, Team Solo had disbanded while still at the peak of its career.

And this man, who had been called “the one who has reached the pinnacle of individual performance as a pro gamer,” one day, had simply disappeared and left China.

She blinked her eyes. Her nose tingled. She felt somewhat down.

Unconsciously, her fingers slid back and forth over the keyboard.

She imagined that if she had known him ten years ago, she probably would not have even dared try to get close to him. He had been too dazzling.


Eh, wait, no.

Ten years ago, she was only nine years old…

Primary school, third grade…

Still crying like a baby over her poor grades in her English class…

Third grade, huh? A picture of herself popped up in her mind: an enormous schoolbag on her back, crying as she folded her test paper into a tiny little square and hid it in a corner of her bag. And then, after she got home and her mom successfully found it and pulled it out, the first questions that came up had been “Why did you hide the test paper in your schoolbag? Isn’t that the easiest place to find it? …”

Back then, she did not even know how to hide her test paper away.

And he was already a world champion.

Tong Nian felt rather stirred with emotion. Opening up Weibo, for the first time ever, she posted some words that had nothing to do with covers of Japanese songs.

Ten years ago, what were you all doing? I’m suddenly feel really stirred emotionally. While I was still so silly that I only knew to hide my test paper in my schoolbag, someone was already a world champion.

Ten seconds later, thirty comments. Twenty seconds later, seventy comments…

She had nothing to do anyway, so one by one, she scrolled through them. The number of comments was increasingly rapidly since, after all, this was a rare, once-in-a-century moment where she was actually interacting with netizens… There were countless replies with all sorts of wonderful and wacky responses. Some fans even sniffed out the mood behind this Weibo post.

Random person: ^ω^ Ten years ago, huh? Meow. I was doing make-up exams!

Random person: Fiercely making a mark here first. While I’m at it, I’ll do a love profession. Your Highness, requesting to marry you!

Random person: Your Royal Highness! Who is “someone”?!!!!

Random person: Same as above poster! Who is “someone”? Who who who who whooooo?!

Random person: I was at the anime expo that took place before the Lunar New Year. Your Highness, Your Highness, I was the one who gave you that love letter, the one with the red envelope! Your Highness’s legs are crazy amazing!

Random person: Previous poster, give me a break. Are Our Highness’s legs the only things that are crazy amazing?

Random person: Dada’s so cute. To actually hide a test paper in your schoolbag… Was it because you were trying to give a demonstration on how to be caught on the spot?


Mobile phone user no. 30230333: I will be out of country the next few days. Mobile no. is 1840090 + your house number. Gn


Random person: I’ve hidden mine before, too! In the corner of my drawer! It turns out I’m not the dumbest one HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…

Random person: Wait! What’s up with the previous post????





Tong Nian suddenly stopped breathing, and both her hands pressed against her chest.

It was him, it was him!!!!

[1] Technically, the Chinese text described it as the club’s 公寓, which should be translated as an apartment complex. However, as you read further, you will realize the set-up is describing the “gaming house” concept that has been very popular with many pro gaming teams, especially those based in Asia. A gaming house is a central place containing living quarters and training areas and allows gamers, as a team, to sleep, eat, and train together. It began in Korea, originally as a cost-saving measure for the often very young gamers to pursue competitive gaming. Nowadays, for some of the bigger, wealthier eSports organizations, pro gaming houses can be very elaborate and lavish. Note that while the gaming house model has been very popular, not all teams follow it, and some have actually moved to having simply a central training facility instead, which allows for separation of work/gaming from other areas of the team members’ lives.

[2] 《三步腿软》Terrified in Three Steps and 《夜取亚龙湾》The Taking of Yalong Bay at Night are both fictional movies that the author made up, and their titles are a parody on the real movie titles, 《一步之遥》”One Step Away” (a literal translation of the title; the official English title is Gone with the Bullets) and《智取威虎山》The Taking of Tiger Mountain, respectively. Both of these actual movies were released in December 2014, while this particular chapter of the novel was released online less than a month later in early January 2015.

[3]千帆阅尽 “qian fan yue jin.” This literally means “to have gazed upon thousands of sailboats.” It is a saying that draws reference to the poem,《望江南》 To Gaze Upon Jiangnan, written by Tang dynasty poet 温庭筠 Wen Tingyun. There is a line in the poem, “过尽千帆皆不是,” which means, “thousands of sails have passed, but none are the one.” The poem describes a woman who awakens and readies herself for the day. Alone, she ascends a pavilion that looks out upon the river and stands there, watching as sailboats come and go. But none of these boats carry the one whom her heart is waiting and longing for. After gazing for an entire day, against a backdrop of glowing rays from the setting sun and the steady flow of the river, yearning and disappointment settle in the woman’s heart. “To have gazed upon many sailboats” is therefore a metaphor to describe a person who has experienced many things, especially those of love, but they have never come to fruition and have brought only disappointment after disappointment until the heart is lonely and weary.

  1. Uh oh! Ha-ha.. Who gave their phone no directly on Twitter? Lol! Gun def such a newbie. There’s thing called DM, gunny boy 😁 Anyway, he’s reporting to his GF now? seems he’s starting to warm up to TN?

    • 1840090 + your house number.

      Actually he did pretty well. I could be misinterpreting this but I think he did it using a math question only someone that knows her address can solve.

    • His phone number is 1840090XXXX, where the XXXX is her apartment number. 🙂 Yes, the guy doesn’t know how to private message at all. LOL. I don’t know if he’s reporting to her, but he does realize that he has created a relationship between the two of them, and courtesy/responsibility would dictate that he should let her know. After all, what if she decides to “break up” during that time? 😉

      But yes, he is starting to warm up because of her trust in him, that “she had unconditionally believed his explanation.”

  2. Just casually drops a reply on her post with his number, I love this pair.

  3. Oh dear, he revealed himself infront of a horde of obsessed fanboys that would be terrifying in reality, but in light novel world it is whimsical and funny.

  4. 😱 OMG! What a way to drop message to her… Hahaha… Talk about slow and cold guy … Now the whole world will know that she has ‘someone’ … Can’t wait for the next part on Wednesday… 😉

    • Exactly! While not specifically claiming her attention, he is marking a spot.

    • Ahem, in terms of Weibo, he really is a little “slow.” He had no intentions of making any announcement. He just wanted to tell her something. Hahaha.

      • Cute and yet without his realization, leads to more confusion on her side… so now she would be thinking if she wants to break up with him or not….. Thanks my dear. Can’t wait for the next chapter….

  5. This guy is so so so unbelievable sometimes and reading this is such a sweet torture. This pair is such a cutie *dreamily sighs* thanks for the chapter!

    • Cute and hilarious. As individuals, they are not the type that I normally gravitate to, but put them together and I just love them in story world! You’re welcome!

  6. Thank you for the chapter!!

    I feel the different feeling from this chapter though lol
    If I’s Gun, I would feel utterly frustrating and annoying with what has happened.

    In real life, if there is someone who accidentally attached to your life because she like you face (love at first sight?) without actually knowing you and give sort of interrupt to daily life and family matter, it is probably not even cute or nice. Annoying. Or feeling like shaking the timid out of the girl would be understandable for my case hahahah.
    Sorry for using such a harsh words.

    But anyway, it is understandable since she is so young. Sigh* young people.

    • I feel Gun’s frustration, and it is perfectly understandable for him to be ticked off. After all, he didn’t ask for this “relationship.” However, this entire situation really is not Tong Nian’s doing. I’ll say, yes, the very first day at the stadium was annoying. She randomly showed up in their team lounge and then somehow, she became his gf in everyone’s eyes. In fact, though, that day didn’t really bother him that much. The next day, at the exhibition centre, she did not intend to do anything but look at him from afar and maybe say hello. He sent demo out to get her to quiet down his team, sat with her to watch a tournament, then told her he had no intentions of getting a girlfriend. She then chose to walk out of his life and did not plan on intruding again. As fate would have it, though, HE showed up in HER living room. She did not try to stick to him. She tried to stay quiet about knowing him to not spoil his blind date, but he was the one who told her it was not necessary. She frantically denied that they were an item, but because of Dt, no one believed either her or Gun. If you really try to fault her, perhaps you could say that she could have clearly stated, “No, Han Shangyan and I are not dating.” However, book-smart as she is, she is not at all an articulate girl, so though she was already trying her best to clarify, she tripped over her words. In the end, Han Shangyan/Gun was the one who “admitted” to being an item with her, to try to minimize the chaos.

      So, absolutely, Gun should be annoyed at frustrated with Dt for “selling him out” and implying that he and Tong Nian were dating, with Grandfather for refusing to believe him, and with the whole awkward situation beginning with the blind date and everything. But he realizes that Tong Nian is not to blame in this and is even trying to consult him when they should end this. He “gave in” because “she had unconditionally believed” him and let her decide the break-up. He could very well have told her to break up with him in a set time, but because she had showed such trust in him, his heart softened and implicitly allowed her to be part of his life, just not his actual girlfriend.

      Anyways, yes, feel Gun’s frustration. 🙂 The poor K&K boys are certainly feeling it. LOL

  7. Men and their Ego 😎

    Tysm 😘

  8. I cannot believe he just did that. His mouth keeps rejecting her but all his actions are creating more and more misunderstandings. His laziness keeps causing him trouble. too lazy to explain and now too lazy to get her number or details from other sources. She’s deluded and her friends aren’t helping, but then again neither is he. I can’t wait until he finds himself caught.

    I want more Dt. Not afraid to sell him out and not afraid of his temper.

    • Regarding the weibo comment, he did not know the ramifications of what his comment would do to her fans. As for what it made her think, yeah, I agree, telling her to decide the breakup time could be confusing to someone like Tong Nian, who overthinks things (and he knows that about her personality). To him, i meant that he wasn’t admitting to a romantic relationship and she could just end the situation however and whenever she felt. However, he is warming up to her and his moment of softheartedness, as he termed it, indirectly gave her permission to be a part of his life. To be fair, it was not because he was too lazy to explain but rather, based on the previous chapter, it was because he knew when it came down to his word vs Dt’s, his grandfather would not believe him and he did not want to risk his 90+ year old grandfather’s health, especially during the Lunar New Year’s celebrations. As for why he wouldn’t ask for her number, tehe, it’s because he thought this a way to get ahold of her. The guy is social media inept. Hahaha.

      Dt is awesome. 🙂

  9. ⊙_____⊙” should i do the same as you, Gun?
    Well if i was in the same condition as her,

    Between the swarm of male bees (comments), he commented that only me that would know the meaning… i would think it was really sweet and romantic… and i would dance in front of my laptop and sing~~~ sigh… i am became crazy

    thanks for the chapie!!

    • Haha, sigh away.

      He was not trying to be romantic. :p He was just using what he *believed* to be a direct method to contact her and, out of courtesy, let her know he wouldn’t be around and, maybe, how to get ahold of him of she wanted to “break up” during that time. :p

      You’re welcome!

      • Lol Hoju, sometimes girls can misunderstanding about what man’s intentions…
        ahaha, i once felt that when i was in my high school lol (what a black hole -___-“),
        if there are man reading this, watch what i want to say!
        “Be careful what you did with girls, man… they might misunderstood you.”

  10. That means he has been lurking in her weibo😂

    • Haha. Not at all. The guy doesn’t do social media. He probably remembers hearing about it from that time during the dinner with the K&K boys and thought that was one way he could get ahold of her.

  11. Thank you for your translation. How can Gun know TN house number? Does it mean home phone number?

    • I’m thinking it’s more likely her home address number, Just like lordofeaglesbringeroftacos mentioned above😉

    • You’re welcome.

      No, not home phone number. Here where I live, a “house number” is the unique number assigned to a building/house/apartment to allow people to locate it. It’s part of the address. Gun knows her house/apartment number because he went to her home and it would be displayed at the front door. (I think I may change the text to say “apartment number” instead, though.)

  12. Mmh, Hoju I love your translation, you’re doing an awesome job, but I just can’t like this story. I really tried to give it a chance, but it is just not to my taste. Female leads that are just a plaything in the current of the male lead’s whims and moods are the biggest turn-off for me. I know Gun doesn’t have feelings for her, but that still doesn’t excuse his indifference to people which is frankly bordering on asshole-ry. What exactly is there to like about him? I know this is supposed to be a light story, but seeing Tong Nian dociley following all the idiotic wishes of Gun makes me rather mad. He always makes it seem like she is doing sth. wrong and lectures her and he never considers anyone’s feelings but his own convenience. I will wait for you to start your next translation project. Until then, best wishes

    • Thank you for giving it a try. 🙂 I don’t expect everyone to like all stories I choose. There are some stories widely loved by the masses that I myself did not enjoy.

      Forgive the long post below, but I thought I would give my thoughts regarding Gun and yeah, even defend him a bit. Feel free to skip if you see fit. 🙂

      Yes, Gun’s indifference to everything but the things he cares about does skirt the royal jerk boundary. However, I do differ on your opinion that he treats Tong Nian as a “plaything” that he makes to follow his wishes and does not consider her feelings. Gun has never intended to “play” with her.
      – Day 1, at the stadium, she charges into his team lounge. He thinks she’s romantically tied to grunt, who already has a girlfriend, so yes, his tone was harsh, but that’s understandable. When he learns that it was actually because of him, he curiously asked why she liked him, but she was the one who interpreted it as impatiently questioning her. He let her have her phone interview in his hotel room’s bathroom, then he fed her and asked a team driver to take her home to ensure her safety. He did not clarify that she was not his girlfriend because, as Dt aptly observed, he did not want to embarrass this girl. So he *was* thinking of her feelings and didn’t really care that the team thought they were an item since, he believed, he would see not her again after that night.
      – Day 2, at the exhibition centre. He unexpectedly saw her when the teams were filing in. He sent demo out to bring her in to join K&K. Yes, it was definitely for his own reasons, because he wanted the team to settle down and stop harassing him. However, he did not do anything to imply that he was interested in her, nor did he “toy” with her. He told her his players liked her and wanted to treat her to watch the competition. Never once did he try to give her hope. They sat side by side and watched the competition. Then after, he told her clearly that he did not intend on having a girlfriend. Sure, he made up an excuse, that his heart was for the team, but really, for a girl that you had only seen 3 times in total, there was no need for him to explain things and he thought this would minimize any embarrassment and hurt she might feel. “It’s not you, it’s me. I need to focus on the team.” Never once did he berate her for trying to get close to him. Tong Nian got the message and thought she would never intrude on his life again. Again, no playing with her feelings. (Perhaps the only part you might interpret as being “harsh” was when he told her to give him a dry run of how she would clarify their misunderstanding, but while it was blunt and not diplomatic at all, again, he did not berate her. He just told her that if she couldn’t do it, she should not interfere with their competition mindset and wait until later.)
      – Several days later, he showed up in her house and was forced into a blind date with her cousin. His words were possibly harsh when he told her she didn’t need to pretend not to know him. However, thinking of her as a friend, he went back and explained that Dt would be coming so they wouldn’t be able to maintain the facade anyways. He also told her again that he did not intend on getting a girlfriend and her defense of him actually was more problematic. I don’t see this as lecturing her. Sure, his tone isn’t kind and gentle, but here, he is actually considering her feelings and trying to help her feel better. Yes, we read over and over again that his patience wanes with her, but he tries his best to control himself and never once has he lost his temper on her. Then, he was forced into a situation where no one believed that there was nothing between the two of them. His judgment was that no matter how he explained, his words would not believed, and in front of all those elders, during the Lunar New Year’s, going at odds with his grandfather would possibly have grave consequences in regards to the elderly man’s health. So, he thought to simply admit to the relationship and then break it off later, during a time where there wasn’t all those eyes staring at them. You can question his judgement, you can say that he should have consulted Tong Nian first before deciding that, but you must admit that there was absolutely no intention of toying with her. He didn’t tell the truth behind the reason why he did it, so that could be a fault against him, but that fib at least did not hurt her. I personally would have just said “we can discuss this later” when she asked him why, but he’s not called Con Man for no reason.

      So, yes, you can say he absolutely does not care about what other people think about him. I feel like, to him, his achievements say it all. 10 years ago, when no one believed in him, including his own grandfather, he forged his way into the world of pro gaming and showed everyone that he could do it. Therefore, in his eyes, he does not need people’s approval and he doesn’t care for it. Hence, in front of all the elders, he did not bother putting up a pretense of being a good boyfriend. However, he will consider other people. For Tong Nian, a girl that he’s only just met and seen only a handful of times, he considers her feelings, not wanting to embarrass her, trying to soften his words and not just say “I’m not interested in you” but still clearly communicate that he does not intend on having a girlfriend, explaining to her why he said those things in front of her cousin. He considered his grandfather’s health. Absolutely not saying he’s the considerate type (heck no!! LOL), but one of those who hides his feelings quite deep.

      Anyway, Gun is supposed to be a male lead full of faults behind the “halo” that his title of God Gun gives off. He doesn’t bother to hide his faults (haughty, self-absorbed to name just a couple), and you can dislike them. In fact, he’s not my favourite type of male lead (I prefer Toupai! And Gu Pingsheng!). Just thought I would share my thoughts on how I interpret his actions up to this point, though.

      Once again, thank you for reading. I have my next project in mind already, but that won’t be happening for quite a while, so I won’t say anything about it. 😛 Best wishes to you as well, and hope you find some good reading in the meantime.

  13. hahahahah….what a way to say he is not interested (NOT) in TN by giving his mob no via her weibo where currently her fans can see it clearly….that clearly giving a wrong signal to TN too….

    • Haha… The guy had no intention of sending signals to anyone, fans or Tong Nian alike. He has no idea what he just did. And i find it hilarious. Super pro gamer doesn’t know how social media operates. LOL

  14. WHHAAA?! That’s it?! Damn, the chapter is so short! I want MORE *whines*

  15. Thank you……hmmm…..just dont understand his motive in dropping a message to her in her ‘public’ place….

  16. Gun has taken TN’s matter a lot more into than he expected ^.^

    • That would be only mean one thing right, lol.. she’s weighing on his deeeeeeeeeeeeeepest subconscious mind, but he’s still doesn’t realize it yet. Tong Nian doesn’t realize it too. Only soy milk, blueberry and us realize it😁😁😁

    • He’s softening to her, even calling her a friend. 😉 That’s a veeeerrrry rare thing.

  17. Thanks for this chapter. Slowly Gun is warming towards TN without him realizing it. Hehe..

    • You’re welcome. 🙂 He does consider her a friend. That’s huge! But the fact that he would give in and make a promise to her… that’s huger! (Yes, I know that’s not a word. Hahaha)

  18. Whew finally caught up. Thanks again for the amazing chapter! Cant wait for more! Make sure to thouroughly enjoy ur holidat first though 😁

    • Welcome back. 🙂 Glad you’re back with us.

      Thank you. I had a wonderful time on my little holiday and got some good family time in. 🙂

  19. He is shy to tell her that he out of the country at least he has the courtesy to let her know his where abouts. I think he had been monitoring her or lurking on her weibo. That’s cute…He is falling for her gradually. Thanks a million…

    • I agree, I think his action is out of courtesy. After all, he did “tie” the two of them together into (what he considers) a temporary relationship. Tehe… you’ll find out next chapter about him and Weibo. LOL. Maybe not falling for her yet but I do think he’s warming to her.

      You’re very welcome!

  20. OMG he didn’t hehehehe!! Why didn’t he just PM her? Didn’t he read through the comments before posting? His way of doing things is pretty interesting lol!

  21. Omg! That was totally unexpected lol.
    Thanks a lot, hoju~

  22. I wonder how many of her stalker fans know her house number.

  23. Thank you for the chapter~

  24. Uh. Feeling so sad. She just a snotty bray while he already a champ. *Sniff. I feel emotional till he joined the post …
    Damn. Give me back my sympathy!

    Oh btw new reader here, thank you for translating this story~

  25. Lmao at this dude posting that in her comments lol computer savvy truly doesn’t mean phone savvy lmao. She so cute my siblings and I used to signed each other bad grades, then give it back to the teacher, then destroy them once the teacher I signed them too.
