Translator’s note: I’ve almost finished posting Rebirth: Different Way, and this is another story I’m picking up to get some breaks from Lu Lingxi and his tomatoes  Pastoral Daily Life is going to be updated as usual, this one is extra.
It is a modern day wife chasing crematorium but don’t expect anything flashy, it is quite low-key.
The chapters are a bit long and the author’s style is a bit difficult, so I don’t know… maybe three chapters a week? Or more if everything goes well.

It was only September but the night breeze couldn’t wait to soak up the chill.

Tang Yi settled the bill at Ali’s front desk, and when he looked up, he saw Gu Yanting escorting Lin Rui into the taxi.

Lin Rui’s long, bright, peach blossom eyes were slightly curved towards Gu Yanting.
Above his head, Gu Yanting’s hands were blocking the door.
It was a pair of well-boned hands, usually carefully maintained, but now silently covering the door panel in a complaisant gesture.

Tang Yi was about to walk out of the door when his footsteps stalled.
His expression was not fully formed yet but his feet subconsciously retracted.
The temperature difference between inside and outside was so intense that he shivered and goosebumps rose on his exposed arms.

The elevator behind him dinged, and a few buddies who had gone to the toilet together came out helping each other.
The one in the lead, a chubby man with a bald head, saw Tang Yi at the door and gave a ‘tsk’.

“Hey, Sister-in-law, waiting for us, na?”

Tang Yi paused slightly, and when he turned back he was already smiling, “Yeah, I was afraid you guys fell into the pod, so I’d have to go back and fish you out!”

Tonight was a welcome-back party for Lin Rui.
After they picked him up at the airport, they went straight to Ali KTV in a blaze of glory.

Tang Yi didn’t know them well, but in the past few days he and Gu Yanting had a bit of a conflict.
Tang Yi was thinking of finding a chance to break the ice with Gu Yanting, so he hurried over there after the meeting in the evening.
It was just that he hadn’t eaten any lunch or dinner and his stomach was twitching.
So when he saw Gu Yanting singing with Lin Rui in a private room, his eyes full of affection, the idea of breaking the ice vanished.

With all this uproar, everyone had a bit too much to drink.
They all had to take a taxi back.
Tang Yi had been under a lot of pressure these past few days and after drinking on an empty stomach his intuition was not good.
When he was about to leave and was going to call a taxi, Gu Yanting, who sat beside him, raised his hand and said, “I’ll do it.”

Tang Yi had rarely seen him so considerate, so he was taken aback for a moment.
Thinking that Gu Yanting was also remorseful, he went to settle the bill.

When he went out, he saw the previously described scene.

Gu Yanting’s eyes hadn’t been on him in the first place.

Tang Yi pressed his stomach and sighed in pain.
He slowed down and waved his hand at the others, his expression unchanged.
“You guys go back slowly.
Fat Sod, you’ve had the least to drink, send them home before you go.”

The man snapped to attention in response, “Promise to complete Sister-in-law’s mission!!!”

Tang Yi shook his head and laughed a little, turned and walked forward, “I’ll go with your brother to send someone off first, otherwise I’m afraid your brother will follow someone and never return.”

The four men behind him hemmed and hawed, Skinny Monkey nodding drunkenly and yelling, “Not really! Sister-in-law! Someone else can’t, but if Lin Rui wants to abduct Brother, he will follow him, la!”

He was really drunk and thought he hadn’t made a point enough, so he added showing his tongue to his ‘la’.

Tang Yi was still laughing, but Fat Sod’s face changed.
He was busy gagging his friend, saying to Tang Yi with a smile, “That was before, but now with Sister-in-law around, Brother Gu wouldn’t dare.”

Tang Yi waved his hand and walked to the taxi, heading to the passenger side and saying as soon as he sat down, “Chief, let’s go.”

He smiled softly; reflected in the rearview mirror, the smile was a bit fake, like a painted skin, hanging helplessly and decadently on his face.

Tang Yi and Gu Yanting were together for three years and Tang Yi knew about Lin Rui’s secret garden-like existence before they started.

At that time Lin Rui went abroad to continue his studies.
Before leaving, he went all the way north from Guangzhou to Shanghai, participating in a dozen face-to-face gatherings plus send-off.
Most of the school’s affairs were left to Gu Yanting to handle.
Gu Yanting ran here and there and had to wait until they were on their way to the airport before he was able to have a proper word with the super popular guy.

At that time, Tang Yi was still an ordinary friend of Gu Yanting and sat in the same taxi with him to see Lin Rui off.
He sat in the passenger seat, while Gu Yanting and Lin Rui sat side by side in the back.

“Have you confirmed everything? Is someone coming to pick you up over there?”

“Yes, my dad arranged it all for me.”

“Okay.”

“Thank you, you’ve helped me out so much.
I’ll treat you to dinner when I get back.” Lin Rui smiled; the man was good looking and well-spoken.
His well-proportioned skeleton was accompanied by the beautiful facial features, which really made people feel good to look at.

In contrast, Gu Yanting’s reply was a bit stilted, “Don’t mention it.
Feel free to call me if you need anything.”

Lin Rui went to Australia, and Gu Yanting’s English had never passed Level 6.
There were no relatives or friends there who could provide substantial help either.
