The Complete Guide to the Use and Care of a Personal Assistant Translator: Jury Editor: NomNom First Published on Chaleuria — Chapter One Hundred and Thirty-three Xie Ruoyan walked in front of Ling Miao. Even though Ling Miao’s expression was resentful, he still accompanied Xie Ruoyan without incident. Seeing the two appear before him, Su Yuyang’s jaw dropped. “Yuyang, is your jaw unhinged?” Xie Ruoyan teased. Su Yuyang shut his mouth and stammered, “No… nothing. Why is Xiao Miao with you?” “He…” Xie Ruoyan let out a faint laugh. Ling Miao huffed and cut off Xie Ruoyan. He snapped, “Met him on the way back.” Ling Miao was being stubborn and Xie Ruoyan didn’t call him out. Ling Miao was hostile toward him, so if he called Ling Miao out now and Ling Miao turned on him, Su Yuyang, being caught in the middle, would have a hard time too. Xie Ruoyan glanced at the time and asked, “Do you have plans for the afternoon?” “No.” “Writing.” Su Yuyang and Ling Miao spoke at the same time. Xie Ruoyan pretended not to have heard Su Yuyang’s voice and said regretfully, “Since you’re going to write, I won’t take up any more of your time. The book signing starts tomorrow morning at 9:30. We’re about done for today, too, so I’ll take you both back.” Su Yuyang grimaced as he...Read More
The Complete Guide to the Use and Care of a Personal Assistant Translator: Jury Editor: NomNom First Published on Chaleuria — Chapter One Hundred and Thirty-two “Xie Ruoyan and I?” Su Yuyang looked at Ling Miao with a faint smile then smiled broadly: “We were high school friends.” As Su Yuyang spoke, Ling Miao stared into his eyes. Su Yuyang’s eyes were calm; he didn’t look as if he were lying. Upon further thought, Su Yuyang indeed wasn’t lying. He had just concealed his deeper relationship with Xie Ruoyan. “Is it?” Ling Miao’s lips quirked into a cold smile. Su Yuyang stared at Ling Miao. For some unknown reason, the Ling Miao in front of him now seemed like a stranger. Ling Miao’s entire body was radiating a cold air. Su Yuyang felt as though he was standing in a blizzard. His limbs felt frozen solid and he couldn’t move. He could only look at Ling Miao in confusion. Ling Miao sighed, “If you were really only school friends, then you two wouldn’t have been so agitated at the airport. In front of the two of you I feel like a third wheel.” Ling Miao’s tone was sorrowful and radiated helplessness. Su Yuyang knew very well that even if he tried to hide it now, he couldn’t guarantee that Ling Miao wouldn’t find out about his relationship with Xie...Read More
The Complete Guide to the Use and Care of a Personal Assistant Translator: Jury Editor: NomNom First Published on Chaleuria — Chapter One Hundred and Thirty-one Su Yuyang and Ling Miao’s days could be described as ‘calm as water.’ They squabbled less than before, but the sound of typing in their room never ceased. Sometimes it was because they were writing, other times because Ling Miao was gaming. Occasionally Ling Miao’s groans would rise into the air while Su Yuyang leisurely watched him complain. Of course, Su Yuyang also sometimes touched Ling Miao’s waist and blew into Ling Miao’s ear so that Ling Miao couldn’t concentrate on writing at all. “Su Yuyang, where are your hands going?” Finally, Ling Miao exploded. He caught hold of a certain someone’s hands which were wandering about his waist and fiercely glared at the man. Su Yuyang disappointedly retracted his hands and said unhappily, “All day you’re either writing or gaming. I’m bored and lonely!” “Scram!” Ling Miao said angrily. “If not for some bastard whose hands were itchy and deleted my drafts, would I need to write so frantically? Fuck, fuck, fuck!” Ling Miao slammed the keyboard hard, flames of anger dancing in his eyes. Su Yuyang guiltily picked up a book and pretended to read. Ling Miao called, “Hey.” Su Yuyang’s hand jerked and the book fell directly onto Su Yuyang’s...Read More

From a distance, it looked as if the entire world were shrouded in a white veil. Ling Miao stood at the entrance to the public graveyard, his palms covered in a sheen of sweat. Su Yuyang carried incense and flowers in one hand, an umbrella in the other. Seeing Ling Miao’s unease, he passed the incense to the hand holding the umbrella and grasped of Ling Miao’s hand, hoping to give him strength. Ling Miao glanced gratefully at Su Yuyang then stepped into the graveyard. Ling Miao, familiar with the way, quickly found his mother’s grave. Su Yuyang lit the incense and put the fresh flowers before the gravestone. Ling Miao touched the photograph on the gravestone and called lightly, “Mom.” The woman in the photograph was ordinary and unadorned. Her smile was calming. As Su Yuyang looked at Ling Miao’s mother, the last of the uneasiness remaining in his heart vanished. Ling Miao had not visited his mother’s grave for a long time. In a low voice, he recounted the events of the past several months. “Mom, I said I’d come visit you every month, but I haven’t been here in a long time. I...Read More
The Complete Guide to the Use and Care of a Personal Assistant Translator: Jury Editor: NomNom First Published on Chaleuria — Chapter One Hundred and Twenty-Nine “11，,1,11^…” Su Yuyang muttered as he typed on the keyboard. Ling Miao scooted over to listen. Oh, Su Yuyang was complaining. If Ling Miao hadn’t already known the reason for Su Yuyang’s grievance, he might have thought Su Yuyang had a grudge against the number 11. Last night, when Ling Miao had grabbed Su Yuyang’s phone and posted the blog post Su Yuyang had drafted, he had also used Su Yuyang’s account to reblog it with the addition, “Tomorrow, I’ll upload 11 chapters to celebrate.” Su Yuyang looked at his saved drafts, then looked at his hands, then at the sly expression on Ling Miao’s face. He momentarily felt that the whole world had gone dark. Fangroup \ Tofu: Wait for the Great Shu’s 11 chapters today. Tofu posted this good news in the group. Fangroup \ Little Apple: 11 chapters? What 11 chapters? Fangroup \ Tofu: The Great Shu made a blog post yesterday saying he will upload 11 chapters today. Fangroup \ Gourd Doll:¹ 11 chapters? It’s not Singles’ Day. Fangroup \ Tofu: [Image] Tofu sent a screenshot of Su Yuyang’s microblog to the group chat, which exploded at once. Countless lurkers now surfaced. Fangroup \ Unseen: And here we see...Read More
