Chapter Seven – Phoenix Man (7)
Although Yan Jing Ze confessed to himself half a year ago, Jiang Ping Xiu did not feel that Yan Jing Ze really liked himself. He felt that Yan Jing Ze confessed to him in order to get money from him.
Of course, he doesn’t mind it, after all, he really likes Yan Jing Ze.
Yan Jing Ze said a lot of sweet words to him before, for example, he will live with him in a big city and that he would also take his grandma. He always repeats these words in his heart to give himself confidence but in his heart, he already knew the truth.
Yan Jing Ze didn’t hold his hand before, he didn’t seem to like him at all.
But as long as Yan Jing Ze is willing to coax him, it’s already very good. Since he was a child, there was no one who would flatter him. He’s still a sissy looking guy who likes men, so naturally, no one would like him.
But recently, Yan Jing Ze has changed.
Yan Jing Ze held his hand, bought him things, and took care of him.
He felt that Yan Jing Ze was changed to another man.
But this is indeed Yan Jing Ze, he will never be mistaken.
Why did Yan Jing Ze treat him nicely so suddenly?
Yan Jing Ze also picked up his grandmother and rented a house for him.
He actually wanted to leave the village, after all, he and his grandmother had been bullied in the village. Did Yan Jing Ze know this, if that’s not the reason why he did it, then did he just want to be separated from him?
He gave Yan Jing Ze a lot of money before, but now Yan Jing Ze wanted to pay him back?
Jiang Ping Xiu only felt that his heart was hanging in the air and his whole body was trembling.
Fortunately, this period of time did not last long—after he asked, Yan Jing Ze said almost immediately: “Why would I not want you? I love you the most, you are my baby.”
Yan Jing Ze, at first, had an opinion on crossing through as a scum, but after falling in love with Jiang Ping Xiu at first sight, he had no opinion on becoming a scum.
Jiang Ping Xiu is so cute!
Seeing Jiang Ping Xiu staring at himself, still trembling, Yan Jing Ze put his arms around him: “We promised that we have to be together for a lifetime and I never tell lies.”
Jiang Ping Xiu was stunned. They never said they wanted to be together for a lifetime. Yan Jing Ze never said such a thing before!
But ‘for a lifetime’, this is really nice!
Jiang Ping Xiu’s body wasn’t trembling anymore. After Yan Jing Ze hugged him, he felt that this person was really too thin.
Not only is he thin, but he also looks very young, even if he says he is only 14 or 15 years old, everyone should believe it.
Next, he must raise this child well, put a little more fat. In addition, he must continue his studies.
In the beginning, the original owner learned about Jiang Ping Xiu’s life in order to coax Jiang Ping Xiu.
Children in the countryside generally go to school late but Jiang Ping Xiu entered school early. Grandma Jiang was illiterate and there was no adult man at home. After losing a lot of money, she especially hoped that her grandson can study well.
And Jiang Ping Xiu’s grades in school were considered good.
Most children in the countryside cannot sit still and refuse to listen to the class. The teacher was unable to control them, and in the end, gave up and didn’t care anymore.
Under such circumstances, those students with poor self-control have worse grades, but Jiang Ping Xiu always listened very carefully so his grades were quite good.
Unfortunately, because he was praised by the teacher, the students actually bullied him even more.
When he got to junior high school, he was thin and small and was bullied even more. Most students in junior high school never got into high school and at most only send one or two students to a regular high school in the county town. He couldn’t enter since he didn’t have the money so he simply stopped studying.
Yan Jing Ze felt that the reason why Jiang Ping Xiu was so supportive of the original owner’s study, probably because the original owner was continuing his dream.
Generally speaking, Jiang Ping Xiu actually has a gift for studying. He is still young, he must continue to go to school!
Thinking about this, Yan Jing Ze pinched Jiang Ping Xiu’s arm and Jiang Ping Xiu’s hand again.
The arms are too thin, the hands are too rough, they must be kept well from now on.
If you want to raise a child, you must have money. He must make money!
Jiang Ping Xiu didn’t know what Yan Jing Ze was thinking. He was held by Yan Jing Ze and Yan Jing Ze still pinched his hand and arm back and forth. Jiang Ping Xiu’s whole body was about to burn!
What is Jing Ze doing? What’s going on?
Also, is his hand a bit ugly?
Yan Jing Ze held him for a while before letting go: “Okay, let’s go and take a shower and then go to bed early.”
Jiang Ping Xiu nodded.
Yan Jing Ze said again: “Yes, we sleep together tonight, and we’ll sleep together from now on.”
Sleep together? Jiang Ping Xiu was completely dumbfounded. Yan Jing Ze pushed him a little, he jumped up and ran into the bathroom.
When Jiang Ping Xiu took a shower, Yan Jing Ze went to make the bed.
There were only two bedrooms in the house, the dining area outside was too small with only a table. He had no other choice but to sleep with Jiang Ping Xiu.
But the quilt must be separated.
Jiang Ping Xiu is still too young. For at least two years, he will not do anything to him.
Speaking of which, the original owner actually slept with a child, really a beast!
Yan Jing Ze dislikes the original owner more and more every day!
Jiang Ping Xiu did not pack up the quilt while packing his things in the car wash shop but Yan Jing Ze prepared a quilt for him. He took all the quilts from his school and bought new ones.
At this time, he laid two bedspreads on a 1.8-meter bed, and after he finished doing it, Jiang Ping Xiu came out after taking a shower.
“You blow dry your hair, I will take a shower.” Yan Jing Ze said.
Jiang Ping Xiu nodded and saw the two bedspreads on the bed, he was a little lost.
But he soon recovered—Yan Jing Ze did not dislike him and it was already good to be willing to sleep with him. What else is he thinking about!
After coming out, he brought his toiletries and cream with him. He took it out and wiped himself carefully with cream before blow-drying his hair.
He had never thought about taking care of his skin before but now… Yan Jing Ze should want him to look better?
When Yan Jing Ze laid down to sleep, he smelled a scent of cream from the boy beside him.
When he returned to his hometown, Yan Jing Ze was actually quite tired and he finally fell asleep in this scent.
Jiang Ping Xiu felt relieved and only dared to move when Yan Jing Ze fell asleep.
As long as he thinks of Yan Jing Ze sleeping next to him, his heartbeat is getting faster and faster, he can’t sleep at all. He is now afraid that he won’t be able to get up tomorrow morning.
He set a vibrating alarm clock for his mobile phone, put it in his quilt to ensure that he will not wake Yan Jing Ze up. Jiang Ping Xiu finally had a peace of mind and fell asleep.
Yan Jing Ze is not a lazy person, he usually wakes up on time not later than seven o’clock.
When he was sleeping in the dormitory, he got up early.
But when he woke up today, there was no one around him. When he got outside, he also saw Jiang Ping Xiu and Grandma Jiang lowering their voices and talking: “Ping Wa, the high-speed train was really long, and it was beautiful inside. At first, I thought there was no toilet so I was very worried. Fortunately, Yan Da asked if I wanted to go to the toilet.”
“It turns out that there was a toilet on the high-speed train! I don’t even know! I didn’t dare to go back then,” Jiang Ping Xiu said.
“The air conditioner here is really easy to use, especially warm.”
“Grandma, the toilet is also easy to use!”
“I don’t know how to use the kitchen items, I don’t know how to cook for you.”
“Neither will I…”
“In the city, if you want to eat onions you need to spend money. It’s hard to save money.”
“Yeah, I went to buy steamed buns before and it cost me one yuan each!”
The two were amazed while they talk. Yan Jing Ze was so happy to listen. In addition, he also found that some buns had been put on the table.
“You went to buy a bun?” Yan Jing Ze asked.
Jiang Ping Xiu stood up abruptly: “Well, I bought some buns… It’s already a bit cold. I’ll steam it.”
Yan Jing Ze then said: “There is a microwave oven in the kitchen, I just heat it up.”
Yan Jing Ze heated the buns and said: “Ping Xiu, these two days I will take you to learn how to ride a bicycle and buy you one so you can come back here at night.”
Jiang Ping Xiu finishes his work late in the night. It was actually a little troublesome for him to live here but he still wanted Jiang Ping Xiu to come back.
In this way, it is convenient for the two of them to cultivate feelings, and Jiang Ping Xiu can also accompany Grandma Jiang.
“Okay!” Jiang Ping Xiu nodded.
Having settled this matter, Yan Jing Ze accompanied him to talk to Grandma Jiang. He explained to Grandma Jiang the usage of various things in the house and also turned on the TV in Grandma’s room to show Grandma Jiang.
Grandma Jiang doesn’t understand Mandarin and doesn’t understand TV well…but she was very happy to watch it.
In the blink of an eye, it was already eight o’clock, Jiang Ping Xiu said: “I’m going to work.”
“I’ll send you,” Yan Jing Ze said.
Jiang Ping Xiu wanted to refuse but Yan Jing Ze insisted that he be sent to the car wash.
The store was still closed at this moment. Yan Jing Ze taught Jiang Ping Xiu how to ride a bicycle.
As for riding a bike, as long as they are not afraid of falling, if adults want to learn, it should be easy. And Jiang Ping Xiu was not afraid of falling.
He had never ridden a bicycle before but now he learned it all at once.
After he learned it, Yan Jing Ze left on a bicycle.
By this time, the people at the car wash had already come to work.
When Brother Wang yawned, he just happened to see Yan Jing Ze left. He couldn’t help but be surprised: “Your brother came here so early today?”
“It’s not that his brother came early today but he didn’t live here yesterday. His brother picked him up last night,” Xiao Zhang said.
“Picked up? Pick up to go where?” Brother Wang was a little surprised.
“My brother… My brother rented a house and we live together!” Jiang Ping Xiu’s eyes were bright: “Brother Wang, my brother took my grandma in the city. We will live together in the future!”
“Your grandma is not your brother’s Grandma?” Brother Wang yawned again.
“He’s not my brother, I just call him brother,” Jiang Ping Xiu explained. He had long known that these people misunderstood that Jing Ze was his brother. He didn’t want to explain before, but now he suddenly wants to explain.
“He is not your brother and yet you still give him money to study?” Brother Wang was speechless.
Xiao Zhang and Master Chen were also speechless—Jiang Ping Xiu has always given his brother money to spend. They thought he was his brother, but now he’s actually not?
“My brother has found a part-time job now and he doesn’t need my money anymore,” Jiang Ping Xiu said: “He treats me well. He rented a house and took my grandmother.”
“So, did he pay you back?” Xiao Zhang asked.
Jiang Ping Xiu thought for a while and said, “He did… He just didn’t have any money before and accepted the money from me. Now, when he rented the house, he paid for it and he didn’t let me pay.” In fact, Jing Ze did not pay him back. He just doesn’t want other people to slander Yan Jing Ze.
“Then he is really good to you,” Xiao Zhang said.
“Well!” Jiang Ping Xiu nodded: “Brother Zhang, my brother rents a house. There are two rooms. My grandma lives in one and I live with him…” When it came to this, Jiang Ping Xiu couldn’t help laughing.
Xiao Zhang said: “If your brother can live in the school and you live in the store, how much money can you save? Now, how expensive is renting a house? Instead of giving money to the landlord, you might as well spend it to yourself.”
“You only know about spending money. It’s also nice to bring the old lady and live here in the city to do filial piety,” Master Chen said.
Xiao Zhang has always been pursuing the consumption principle of “eat up and be healthy”. Once the monthly salary is given, he will immediately spend it. He doesn’t know how to save money.
Master Chen is different. He values the family and most of the money he made will be given to his family. But even if he doesn’t give money, he will not be wronged.
At this moment, Master Chen said to Jiang Ping Xiu: “Your brother is really good to you. You can work hard to make money now, save a little more money, and find a partner in the future.”
“Yes, when the time comes, I’ll introduce you to some girls!” Brother Wang said.
Jiang Ping Xiu blushed: “You don’t need to introduce me.”
“Don’t be shy! But you are really too young to find someone now. It’s too early to fall in love!” Brother Wang said.
Jiang Ping Xiu’s face turned redder, but he didn’t continue talking.
He already has a lover! Unfortunately, he can’t tell anyone!

This is so cute!!! I’m so happy for them ❤
They’re so warm and fluffy to each other, like an old couple ;o; (moved to tears) (rolling in fluff) I MTL’ed a bunch of chapters, but your translation clarified a lot of confusion I had at certain parts of the story. So glad to see a quality translation of such a heartwarming story <3
When I was scrolling i really didn’t want for chapter to end 😭😭
Thank you for an update translator sama
As a 16 year old who still doesn’t know how to ride a bike, i tell you guys with experience- THAT’S NOT HOW IT WORKS😭😭😭
You can’t learn how to ride a bike in a moment or two, and you DEFINITELY can’t learn it just by “believing you won’t fall”. I didn’t learn how to ride it when i was a little kid so i’m learning now but it’s hARD.
Tried several times, not as easy as it sounds. Gravity is an enemy. 💀
So true. You should learn it when you’re kid. If not, when you get a bit old it’s hard to learn things specially cycling. I tried so hard but still couldn’t. Now, I regret
