Chapter 7: Is Always Nosebleeding Still Ok?

 

Xu Tangzhou was wearing the thick beige sweater from yesterday, contrasting with his milky and moist skin.
Just poking his face with a finger would reveal how squishy and smooth it was.

 

It so happened that he had a thin and fair face.
The area under his nostrils was a bit red, looking extremely funny.

(TN: however much you want, is however much you have = very much, the most)

 

Xu Tangzhou subconsciously raised his hand and he felt fresh red blood.
His face quickly flushed red: “…..”

F*ck, what the hell!

 

Ling Che handed the tissue to him and then faced the window.

 

Don’t touch me.

Xu Tangzhou somehow understood the emperor’s body language.

He seemed to be hated.

Hehe~ Now to start annoying the copy-pasters~

“Thank you.” Xu Tangzhou hastily took the tissue and hastily cleaned himself up.

So embarrassing…

He even wanted to cry.

Sorry in advance to the reader mode friends TvT

Fortunately, aside from the throbbing of his glands on the back of his neck, only one drop of blood fell from his nose (QAQ see raw)

 

Not long after, Ling Che put on his cap and closed his eyes to sleep.

No one else spoke in the car.

 

Xu Tangzhou was in a complicated mood.
He was thinking whether Huang Qian would kill him if he ruined this chance, graciously given by Ling Che’s willingness to reconsider their cooperation, because of a nosebleed.

The silent car drove to Ling Che’s house.

Ling Che’s family wasn’t an ordinary family.
Xu Tangzhou already learned about it from the recent disturbance.
As the only son of the luxury items empire, there were rumors on how Ling Che didn’t want to inherit the family business, so he impulsively made a debut.

Passing by the high-end residential district and then the artificial lake, the car drove to where there were fewer people.

Only when they saw a villa halfway up the mountain, did they truly approach Ling Che’s house.

 

Aside from the paved road, there was also a gentle trail as if it was made specifically for pedestrians or bicycles.
It seemed to be in line with the rich people's philosophy of “living healthy lives”, “exercising often”, and “reducing their carbon footprint”, even if they would never touch it again.

 

The trail was lined with weeping willows.
However, it was currently winter and their withered branches seemed somewhat desolate.

Xu Tangzhou looked at the trail, and a few memories suddenly flashed in his mind.

The green willow leaves, the rolling of the bicycle wheels, the muddy shoes, a bunch of fresh daisies in the bicycle basket…
Those fragments disappeared too quickly, leaving not even a trace before completely dissipating.

His temples hurt.

He felt that he had come here before, likely more than once.

 

“Ge, don’t get off!”

The car stopped at a garden gate.
They arrived, but Xiao An shouted anxiously.

 

Ling Che already awoke.
There was a trace of red on his face from sleeping, although he was still as handsome as before.

However, he seemed very impatient: “What?”

 

Xiao An let out a curse and angrily spoke: “There were a few paparazzi who walked up the mountains.
There’s a bunch hiding in the shrubs/bushes and also in front of your home.
F*ck, they are simply guarding a tree stump for rabbits.”

TN: A Chinese idiom, meaning “setting up an ambush”

 

Xu Tangzhou pulled open the curtains and saw a field of camera lens.
There were at least 10 people waiting outside Ling Che’s home.

Huang Qian didn’t say another word and began to reverse the car.
“Let’s go.”

 

The paparazzi’s intuition was very sharp.
The moment the car started to move, they instantly knew what was going on and rushed forward.

“Ling Che! Ling Che, come down and explain!”

“Were the rumors about you being blocked true? Why didn’t you attend Shenhai TV's New Year's Party?”

“Ling Che!”

“Ling Che! Did you fall out with Ying Chen? He didn’t say anything for you!”

 

Xu Tangzhou was shot by a paparazzi through the window, and he quickly closed the curtains: “They’re insane! How are they scarier than sasaeng fans?”

TN: 私生饭, or sasaeng, a loanword from k-pop which means a stalker fan

Xiao An said: “You’ll understand later!”

 

No need for ‘later’, Xu Tangzhou already understood.

Ling Che was popular beyond his imagination, even if some random person caused a ruckus*, they wouldn’t garner this much attention.
All this was solely because the person was Ling Che.

*TN: Oof, I honestly couldn’t figure out what 桶翻天, but I’ll assume it’s making a scene

 

The car reversed a few meters and just as they were about to move forward, the front of the car was surrounded.
With how crazed these people seemed, they were willing to risk their lives to get a scoop.

 

“Make way!” Huang Qian stretched his neck out and hollered, “I’m not responsible if you get run over!”

 

“Let Ling Che come down!”

“Ling Che!”

“Ling Che! Your fans say they’re disappointed in you, do you have anything to say!”

 

The villa district’s security car arrived.
The security guards seemed to have just realized that there were trespassers on the mountain.
Not even holding batons was of use, as those paparazzi would cause a ruckus at any movement made.
The scene was in chaos.

 

Ling Che seemed at his wits end and suddenly rolled down the car window.

“Ge!” Xiao An was shocked, “Don’t!!!”

He spoke one second too late.
The moment Xiao An’s words came out, Ling Che already stretched his hand out.

 

He raised his middle finger.

 

The excitement of the paparazzi outside reached its peak.
They began to furiously take pictures and clamor nonstop, loud enough to raise the roof of the car.

 

Xu Tangzhou was stunned.
Wasn’t that a bit too extreme?

Was he sure he wouldn’t be smeared to death by the paparazzi?

 

“Huang ge.” Ling Che made them clearly see his attitude, and calmly rolled up the car windows.
“Unlock the doors.”

“Don’t be impulsive.” Huang Qian was unwilling, “It’s useless for you to speak any sense into them now, no matter what you say! These paparazzi… let’s leave first.
We’ll talk later after giving Ya jie a call.”

“This is my home.” Ling Che spoke gravely, “There is no reason for me to be a coward in the face of people blocking my door.”

Huang Qian was speechless and said anxiously: “Then I’ll first call the police.
Wait until they leave, and then act.”

 

Xu Tangzhou stared blankly at their conversation.
He simply didn’t know what suggestions he should offer.

Ling Che didn’t seem open to suggestions either.

 

Huang Qian refused to unlock the car doors, so Ling Che simply walked up to the front, and taking advantage of his height, he leaned forward and pressed the unlock button.

Even in that noisy situation, the quiet “click” of the doors unlocking was captured by the paparazzi.
Instantly, the doors were wrenched open.

 

There was a flurry of white flashes from the shutters in Xu Tangzhou’s eyes.
The group of people mindlessly took pictures of the inside of the car while hollering Ling Che’s name.
For a moment, Xu Tangzhou -who had never encountered this before- felt fear.

“Who is he?!”

“What’s your relationship?”

 

The scene was a disaster, making his ears ring.

 

Suddenly, Xu Tangzhou’s vision went dark.
His head seemed to have been covered by someone.

It was Ling Che who took off his jacket before getting off the car and draped it over his face.
Before getting off the car, he said: “Struck dumb?”

 

The paparazzi chased Ling Che who got off the car.

The noisy voices gradually faded into the distance.

Xu Tangzhou took off the jacket, watching Ling Che’s head as he moved slowly through the sea of people.
Xiao An also rushed off the car, forcing them out of the way while cursing.

Huang Qian was calling the police: “Miyuan villa district, there are people causing trouble and trespassing into private property…”

That night.

#Ling Che’s Mystery Boyfriend#

#Ling Che Brings A Beautiful Omega Home#

#Ling Che Sticks Up A Middle Finger#

#Ling Che’s Suspected Love Exposed#

……

These tags, which all seemed to be about Ling Che, occupied multiple spots on Flow’s hot search.
In particular, the tag #Ling Che Brings A Beautiful Omega Home# occupied the number 1 spot in popularity, not budging from its number 1 position for a long time.

 

However, this #Ling Che Brings A Beautiful Omega Home# tag – upon opening it, the atmosphere was completely different.

[Hahaha, rofl.
Isn’t the “pretty Omega” Xu Tangzhou??]

TN: actual is “wtmxs” which is “I’m laughing to death”, so I just substituted it with rofl

[Yes, he’s very pretty.
I also want to bring him home  (Wait, that’s not the point!)]

[Who is he? He looks pretty good.
For once, I’m not angry about fighting over my husband, but about his temperament!]

[So who in the world is he? I want all of his info ASAP.]

[Our Zaizai* looks so scared, you scared him!!! I’ll also explain a bit, our Zaizai is called Xu Tangzhou.
Be his fan! If you’re his fan, we will be fellow sisters!]

TN: I forgot if I mentioned it earlier, but the nickname zaizai literally means “child”, and it’s a nickname given to children.

 

Soon after, a well-known entertainment gossip account sent out information.

[#Ling Che Brings A Beautiful Omega Home# To hell with bringing home, do reporters have the memory of a goldfish??? He appeared on the hot search last night! I’m begging you to have a little professionalism and pay attention to the changes?  He’s a newcomer at Xing Jing called Xu Tangzhou.
If you don’t remember, go search it yourself.
Don’t always ask me to explain it for free! ← Points to Mist advertisement.
Xing Jing’s New Year’s party was just last night.
Is Che shen going home with a coworker so unusual? Also, according to insider info, this group of paparazzi surrounded Fisher hotel where Xing Jing had the party.
They continually made spam calls which disrupted the guests’ and the artists’ private life .
I’ll make a guess, Che shen and his agent left separately in order to get away.
Xu Tangzhou only sent him back home.
P.S.
The driver is Xu Tangzhou’s agent.]

 

This Flow post was forwarded tens of thousands of times.
The faces of the paparazzi were quickly slapped swollen.

TN: In case anyone didn’t know, but to slap someone’s face means their reputation (face) had taken a hit.

The Asteroids were laughing underneath the post and praising Xu Tangzhou for doing well.

[Little gege really took care of my Che! So good!]

[I’m a fan now.]

[He did what he promised.
Love it! ]

 

The incident quickly subsided.
After some time, Xing Jing issued a statement harshly critisizing the paparazzi for making something out of nothing.
Also mentioning in passing that Ling Che and Xu Tangzhou were only good friends, no need to second guess.

 

As soon as the statement was issued, anyone who read carefully clearly knew that it was just a show for the public.
It was in response to the “Ling Che discriminates against Omegas” comments.

Ling Che and an Omega are “good friends”, which was enough to shut the mouths of a few people who wanted to aggravate the situation.
Even though it’s not enough, it's a good start.

Situ Ya was very skilled at this.

 

At this time, Xu Tangzhou still didn’t know the deeper meaning behind it.

He browsed Flow to see if anyone was scolding him.
To his surprise, no one scolded him.

 

Until he saw a popular comment.

 

[Was I the only one who noticed that gege took off his coat and covered Xu Tangzhou’s head with it? It’s really A, but I’m still really, really sour ……
I also want gege’s coat ]

TN: sour = jealous, so when you read about someone “tipping over the vinegar jar” or eating lemons, they’re jealous~

Actually no insults today, I tired

Xu Tangzhou sat on the sofa, and Ling Che’s coat was draped on top.

This Ling Che was sometimes a bit mean, but – he grabbed the coat- his pheromones smell nice.

 

Soon after.

Fuck.

He nosebleed again.

 

 

The author has something to say:

Stop smelling it, you can’t handle the smell.
Bleeding makes your kidneys weak.
Child, be good and go find your husband.

Ling Che’s cold face: This beautiful Omega, do you have any troubling diseases? I’ll check it for you.
(Takes out and wears some mysterious items)
