to give him the middle finger ah! 

But, to be honest, the allure of the copyright of [Xun Lang] is indeed not small, even more attractive than that of [Swordsman].1 It’s just that they have not yet completed the development, and the copyright has not been released.
But he has read the story script, seen the character design and part of the testing, which is indeed very interesting.
It’s a good business that will make a lot of money.

“Let me tell you,” Cheng Jiangyi speaks again.
This time he has straightened his face and is very serious.
“Yue Lao is real, and the Red Thread System also exists.
This is not a made-up story.
I was unconscious in the beginning, and when I finally woke up, suddenly, I could only rely on the red thread to protect my body.
It was Xiaopei who found me over there.”2

Chen Ying is dazed for a moment: the female psychologist went to another world to find a destined person.
This plot seems very familiar.
He suddenly understands that this is the plot of [Xun Lang].
He can’t help squinting at Cheng Jiangyi.

“I didn’t make it up; it’s not my idea.
It’s what really happened.
I just recorded it and designed it into a game.
I only wanted to preserve the story of me and Xiaopei forever this way.”

“And you promised me that you will find a way to let everyone believe in love, learn to cherish it, know how to work hard for it, and be forgiving,” Yue Lao 2238 interjected.
It’s why he agreed to let them use his plot in the game.

Cheng Jiangyi waves his hand to tell him not to interrupt.
He continues to say to Chen Ying, “You don’t have to doubt this matter: it is indeed true.
Your brother knows it too.
He also knows about Mi Xi.
Chen Ying, it is reasonable for the Red Thread System to choose you.
You need to take good care of her, it shouldn’t take too long.”

Chen Ying raises his eyebrows.
“What won’t it take too long?”

“Tying the red thread.”

Chen Ying continues to raise his eyebrows.
“Just now, Mr.
Yue Lao, who specializes in tying red threads, said that it is difficult to tie her red thread.
Three years would be very tight, he said.
And you say it won’t take long? Your conscience, is it still there?”

“He emphasized the importance of things, and I emphasized the operability of things.
The rhetorical methods are different, and the words used are different, but you can definitely understand this with your IQ.”

Yuelao 2238 looks from one to the other — both of them are so eloquent ah, he better not cut in.

At this time, Su Xiaopei comes out with Mi Xi. 

Mi Xi has changed into a lightweight, sports casual wear, long-sleeved, trousers, and canvas shoes.
Her long hair is combed into a ponytail, and she looks like a normal girl.
Seeing everyone looking at her, she feels a little embarrassed.
Blinking her eyes, pursing the corners of her mouth lightly, she doesn’t seem to know where to place her hands and feet.

Chen Ying looks at her limpid eyes, her pure expression, a temperament completely different from that of modern girls. 

He suddenly finds that he actually believes their words.
Although they were talking nonsense, he actually believes them a little bit.

If it isn’t true, how did Mi Xi jump onto the roof of his car?

She must have fallen from the sky, otherwise he can’t explain what happened.

He once heard from his older brother that Cheng Jiangyi had had a very special experience, and this Yue Lao 2238 should not be a lunatic.
Even if he takes another ten thousand steps, these two men can’t be trusted—but Su Xiaopei is a serious woman who doesn’t joke around. 

But if this is true, why did the Red Thread System choose him, and how is he suitable?

“What if I don’t agree to adopt her?” he asks.

No one answers him.
It is only Su Xiaopei who lets out a long sigh.

Mi Xi is slightly shocked when she hears what he said.
She purses her lips tight, turning her face away, but she is too stubborn to bow her head.

Looking at her expression and her clenched hands, Chen Ying feels his heart soften.
She seems rather pitiful. 

Well, in actual fact, it’s really not a big deal, just give her a place to live and keep her from starving to death.
As for the others, this is something they themselves would do, right?

Chen Ying clears his throat and sees that Mi Xi is peeking at him in secret.
He suddenly realizes that it was impolite for him to speak like that in front of her just now.
The little girl has just arrived and is unfamiliar with everything.
Everyone told her that she could only rely on him, but he has been so rude. 

However, he’s really not willing to show weakness like this! Why does it have to be him ah?

“So, how old are you?” he asks, trying to figure out the situation.

She’s seventeen, almost eighteen.” Yue Lao seems to realize that he is giving in, so he replies quickly, and takes out the folded paper from the inner pocket of his suit.
“She’s very sensible at this age, so she won’t cause trouble.
Mi Xi is very good.”

Chen Ying gives him a look.
Did he ask him? How proactive he is.
Like a human trafficker selling people.
Is such a Yue Lao really reliable?

“My birthday is on the fifteenth day of the first lunar month,” Mi Xi answers by herself.

“Are you willing to come with me?” Chen Ying asks with a provocative tone. 

If the other party, the girl herself, doesn’t want to, everyone else can’t talk nonsense.
She can choose to stay with whoever she wants.
Well, that’s fair enough.
She doesn’t like him, so there’s a good chance she will say no.

Mi Xi looks at Yue Lao, then at Su Xiaopei, then turns back to him. 

Everyone can see her reluctance, but she still whispers, “Please take care of me, Uncle.”

Chen Ying couldn’t help but stroke his forehead.
This is really bad! Girl, didn’t you beat eighteen men by yourself? Blind obedience is not a virtue, don’t just listen to what others say ah! 

He looks around at the few people around him, everyone is staring at him.
Mi Xi is biting her lip and peering at him in secret.
Chen Ying takes a deep breath.
It’s like a group of bastards selling people, and he is the poor buyer.
No, it should be said that she is the poor, little girl from a good family who is being trafficked.

What would happen if he doesn’t adopt her? Chen Ying hesitates.

“Here,” Yue Lao is very anxious and stuffs the folded paper into Chen Ying’s hand.
“These are Mi Xi’s materials and various documents.
I will leave them with you.”

Chen Ying takes a look.
It’s just a look, he’s only curious.
He hasn’t made a final decision yet— look at this, damn it! 

He jumps up to his feet.

“How the hell did she move to my household registration?”

“You are the guardian ah,” Yuelao 2238 replies.

“Does your Red Thread System also manage the police and handle household transfer procedures?” Chen Ying grits his teeth, “And stealing my household account book!” 

“No, no,” Yue Lao waves his hand fiercely, “I didn’t steal your account book.
Your brother provided it.”

Fuck it.
Of course, he did.
It’s really hard to guard against thieves from your own family.

“What else do you want to ask?” Cheng Jiangyi asks him.

Chen Ying is so angry ah, there are too many questions to ask, but these are not the point! The point is, has he been schemed against by this group of people? Including his own brother? What about family? What about human nature?!

Chen Ying is cursing 100,000 words in his heart.
He turns to Mi Xi, and the little girl is watching the TV.
To her, this world is indeed very strange.
He looks at her, feeling inexplicably soft inside once  again. 

It’s not the girl’s fault; she’s a victim too.
She couldn’t even die well, and was sent to this dratted place to be taken in by a strange uncle.

The whole room is full of people with shitty intentions.

Have they considered the feelings of the little girl? Does no one see her disappointed and sad expression? His heart is so soft ah.

“It seems that he’s fine, so it’s settled!”

Wait, did he agree? He didn’t agree ah! But he is already thinking about which room to place her in, and which bed sheet and quilt to use for the bed.

Kindness is a hell of a thing!



 1[Xun Lang] is game developed by Cheng Jiangyi and Chen Fei’s company.
I don’t know what [Swordsman] is.
Perhaps it was mentioned in the other novels by the same author sharing this same universe.
In any case, it’s not very relevant to this story.

 2Cheng Jiangyi and his wife Su Xiaopei are the main leads in another novel by the same author, entitled ‘In Search of Love’.
