The Complete Guide to the Use and Care of a Personal Assistant Translator: Jury Editor: NomNom First Published on Chaleuria — Chapter Seven Cough, cough—Yu Yang had not at all expected Feng Ji to unceremoniously drag him into this, and the coffee that was about to enter his esophagus went down his windpipe instead. “Right.” Yu Yang spat out the one word with difficulty. Feng Ji’s gaze froze for a moment. Although he had told the truth, he had not expected Yu Yang to admit to it so candidly! Yu Yang actually admitted it?! He should staunchly disagree! A thought flashed through Feng Ji’s mind and quickly vanished into the darkness, but Feng Ji’s gaze had already landed on Ling Miao. Did Ling Miao change him? This …. This is too unscientific! Love at first sight doesn’t work like this! Feng Ji had noticed something was wrong, but neither Ling Miao nor Yu Yang had. Ling Miao looked at Yu Yang dazedly. He could not believe what he was hearing. Yu Yang thought that Ling Miao had guessed the truth, and cleared his throat and was preparing to explain when Ling Miao said, “So all this fuss… the Great Shu likes men!” “Pfff—” Feng Ji could not control himself and the coffee in his mouth came spraying out, as luck would have it, directly onto Yu Yang. “Ha ha!...Read More
The Complete Guide to the Use and Care of a Personal Assistant Translator: Jury Editor: NomNom First Published on Chaleuria — Chapter Six Ling Miao uncertainly opened the earlier text. “Hello, I’m Shu Yang. After making my assessment, I have decided to hire you as my personal assistant. Your next steps are to open your email inbox and carefully read the contract I have sent you. Then read it again. If there is nothing you disagree with, please print and sign it, then bring it to the Heartfelt Words Coffee House at ***** (Address). When you are there, call me.” When Ling Miao finished reading the message, the instant noodles in his hand hit the ground. Pah– “Aah, the noodles all broke!” Ling Miao felt his heart shatter piece by piece with a patter-patter sound. But, surely, it shouldn’t be the instant noodles you’re worried about now? Exactly! Soon, things like instant noodles will be far from me! A job! Ha ha, I am about to get my first job. Of course, I’m very excited! But Ling Miao’s joy did not last long—en route to his apartment, his cellphone was stolen! Back at his apartment, Ling Miao was melancholy for a while before he mustered up the courage to borrow money from Ji Linxi. After buying a new cell phone and getting a new SIM card, Ling Miao’s heart...Read More
The Complete Guide to the Use and Care of a Personal Assistant Translator: Jury Editor: NomNom First Published on Chaleuria — Chapter Five Ling Miao returned to his apartment and lay straight down on Ji Linxi’s bed. The dark room was so quiet that Ling Miao could hear his own breathing. Ling Miao looked at a strip of light on the ceiling. The light was from a street lamp, shining in through the window. The light intertwined with the shadowy surroundings. Ling Miao knew very well that the light was not moving, but his eyes insisted that the light was gradually changing, and it eventually came to a stop in the shape of a man’s face. “Yu Yang.” Ling Miao whispered the man’s name. “Yu Yang… why the hell did I suddenly think about him?” Ling Miao almost shouted. Ling Miao could not calm down even after yelling because this guy, Yu Yang, refused to leave his thoughts. “Ah. Why do I keep thinking about him? Did he poison me?” Ling Miao sat up and kept running his hands through his hair. He looked as though he would not be satisfied until he had torn all of his hair out. “Yu Yang, he’s a little strange.” Ling Miao recalled some of Yu Yang’s strange behavior during their interactions. “At the restaurant, when he was cooking, he only opened the...Read More

He felt that Yu Yang’s words were absurd. Ling Miao’s brain started whirring with a hum. He pointed at Yu Yang and asked: “You said you’d been watching me for a while. Are you planning to do something to me?” Ling Miao’s voice shook at the end. Yu Yang froze. Clearly, it had not occurred to him that Ling Miao’s thoughts would turn in this direction. He smiled and explained, “I’m not planning to do anything to you.” He paused for several seconds to gather his thoughts, then continued—“Like I said before, you’re different from everyone else. You’re very quiet and you’re not anxious. It’s been three hours since the interview with the Great Shu started, but you’re still very calm. It’s obvious that you’re a very patient person. And…” “If it’s been three hours, then it’s been three hours. Strictly speaking I haven’t waited in vain—I’ve written five thousand words.” Ling Miao cut Yu Yang off—he really had no interest in what Yu Yang was saying. Even having been mercilessly cut off by Ling Miao, Yu Yang still remained smiling. He said, “You’re quite open-minded.” Ling Miao rolled his eyes at Yu Yang, and thought, Aside from waiting, what...Read More
The Complete Guide to the Use and Care of a Personal Assistant Translator: Jury Editor: NomNom First Published on Chaleuria —l Chapter Three The notice of acceptance arrived quickly. Ling Miao finished reading Mu Yu’s message, then punched the bed and began to laugh. “Ji Linxi, do you know? The interview is at the East Hot Springs Hotel in the south of the city!” Ji Linxi had just experienced the concept of ‘deafening noise’ firsthand. He really wanted to retrieve a high-pressure water gun from the washroom and spray Ling Miao nice and good to dampen his excessive passion. “Ah.” Ji Linxi heaved a long sigh. “What’s the big deal about the interview being at the East Hot Springs Hotel in the south of the city?” “That means Shu Yang lives not far from me!” Ji Linxi, seeing that Ling Miao was about to lift the roof off the house in his excitement, reminded Ling Miao, “When you see the Great Author, don’t get too excited. Or he will see that you’re crazy and think you escaped from an asylum and immediately fail you.” “Thanks for the reminder.” Ling Miao flopped his hand over the edge of his bed and gently flicked the cup in his palm out. However, Ling Miao never heard the anticipated scream. “I’m going to write.” Ling Miao spoke before Ji Linxi could mock him....Read More
