Thanks for the Ko-fi ✨RTL✨
Zhu Qing’an’s New Year’s Eve dinner, did influence Qin Hengyi, the game mission process had changed.
He originally thought that after the New Year’s Eve dinner, Qin Hengyi’s heart knot would untie and the mission would be completed.
But – Zhu Qing’an stared at the box that popped up in the game, and fell into silence.
[Congratulations! Player completed the ‘New Year’s Eve Dinner’! Mission 01 is currently at 70% completion! Still need 30%! Please keep up the good work!]
[Mission 01 content: On New Year’s Eve, he was eager to taste the unique warmth of humans. But all that awaited him was pain and coldness.]
[Task Tip: This task is related to the knot in your lover’s memory, please complete it.]
The quest wasn’t complete, there was still 30% left.
–Zhu Qing’an was on the right track, but the knot in Qin Hengye’s heart wasn’t completely untied by the New Year’s Eve dinner.
Zhu Qing’an frowned.
What was still missing?
He couldn’t figure it out, he had to go into the game and observe Qin Hengyi to be able to guess.
This should be the first time Qin Hengyi …… spent New Year’s Eve with so many people. What feelings did he have?
Zhu Qing’an couldn’t help but feel a little excited for the other.
He took advantage of the fact that the other people hadn’t finished their broadcasts and stayed in the rest room, secretly preparing for the New Year.
–After the disappearance of his parents, he never had a New Year’s Eve dinner, New Year ……
He had no one to spend it with him.
But this year was different, he had Qin Hengyi, and many fans.
Zhu Qing’an searched for fireworks on Starnet shopping website. He was going to watch fireworks with Qin Hengyi. In the winter scene where the world was white, the fireworks would look spectacular.
The page slowly loaded up, there were no products, only a small text.
The product you searched for “fireworks” has no results.
The fireworks …… seemed to have disappeared in the long river of time along with the New Year.
Zhu Qing’an frowned.
If there wasn’t …… he could only do it himself.
Zhu Qing’an let out a light sigh.
As the variety show drew to a close, the contestants in the live broadcast room came out one after another. They were all surprised Zhu Qing’an ended his live broadcast so quickly, they were also curious about what kind of dishes this little star had prepared.
They’d check the playback after they got home. As for the dishes they expected him to be cook, it’d probably be mediocre.
Seeing that the variety show was over, Zhu Qing’an packed his things and prepared to go home.
The ranking results of each contestant in the variety show wouldn’t be released first, the staff would have to calculate and review the results after a few days. During this period, Zhu Qing’an could prepare for his and Qin Hengyi’s New Year at ease.
Zhu Qing’an returned to his base.
His base was in the suburbs and it was deserted. Every night, it was dark all around. But this year, several new households had moved in, and their little lights were as bright as stars in the suburbs.
The cubs in the base slept early and quietly.
Zhu Qing’an thought that when he announced he had a base, he’d open the adoption rights of the base to find them a real home.
Zhu Qing’an quickly showered, made a cup of hot milk, and then sat in front of the desk to inquire about the information about fireworks production.
There were still ways to make fireworks on the Imperial Star website, which were significantly simpler than the ancient Earth’s production methods. Individuals could make it themselves.
But whether it’d look good or not wasn’t certain.
Zhu Qing’an took a small notebook, seriously wrote down the information, then he bought the corresponding materials from the shopping site.
Qin Hengyi shouldn’t …… have seen fireworks.
In fact, Zhu Qing’an had never seen fireworks either. He had only heard that fireworks were beautiful and warm, reflecting a light that could illuminate the earth.
Moreover, when the fireworks were used, anyone could make a small wish.
By the time Zhu Qing’an finished getting everything for the fireworks, it was already more than 12:00 am. He finished the rest of the milk, brushed his teeth and washed up, and crawled under the covers.
The next day.
The materials for the fireworks were delivered, and after breakfast, Zhu Qing’an was buried in the work of making fireworks. Then when he finally took a break, he sat on the sofa and opened Weibo.
He didn’t know if the winners of the “Dinner’s on” variety show had been announced yet.
There were many big names in the food industry who participated in the variety show with him. He didn’t think he had much hope of winning.
As soon as Weibo opened, the first thing he saw was # New Year’s Eve Dinner#?
New Year’s Eve Dinner ……?
—— Zhu Qing’an’s rebroadcast of New Year’s Eve dinner in variety show was posted online.
Quite unexpectedly, netizens were shocked by Zhu Qing’an’s cooking skills, but they were also touched by the New Year’s Eve dinner Zhu Qing’an made.
Through Zhu Qing’an, they knew for the first time that there was such a wonderful festival on ancient earth – New Year’s Eve. A special day for the whole family to reunite.
[I haven’t been home for almost ten years, and suddenly I want to go home and have the legendary New Year’s Eve dinner.]
[Happy New Year, everyone! Although I can’t go home, I feel the atmosphere of home in the meal that An cooked!]
[An’s cooking is delicious QAQ, I want to eat again, but unfortunately the holographic sampling channel has been closed ……]
[I will definitely go home every year to prepare New Year’s Eve dinner for my family!]
Many netizens had followed the example of Zhu Qingan to make the New Year’s Eve dinner, and at the same time, there was no shortage of rivals who participated in the “Dinner’s On” with Zhu Qingan.
The young man who ran out midway through the variety show and secretly cried, returned home, while New Year’s Eve was still on, he invited a few friends to the house for dinner, and posted on Weibo.
[@PrinceSolidV: Presenting the first time I made New Year’s Eve dinner. #picture #picture #]
The dishes in the picture were very simple, not comparable to what Zhu Qing’an did. But the atmosphere was lively and happy.
It was clear that the young man, who had been lonely and sad because of the death of his parents, felt a long-lost warmth during the New Year’s Eve dinner.
The food blogger contestant, who had been eyeing the first place in the variety show, returned home and also quietly invited his family for the New Year’s Eve dinner, who were so moved that he unexpectedly received their financial support for his career.
He was so happy that he complimented Zhu Qing’an crazily.
[@CaoXuYaoV: Hahahaha went back and learned from @ZhuQingAn to make a New Year’s Eve dinner for my family! I gained a lot! The first place of this edition of the variety show, please award it to Zhu Qing’an! (Small fact: I’m ashamed of myself, Zhu Qing’an’s cooking is indeed much better than mine, obviously I rely on my face)]
Zhu Qing’an was a little touched, he didn’t expect so many people to support him.
He raised the corner of his lips and wanted to send a post to thank everyone.
At the same time, he glanced at the unfinished fireworks placed in the corner.
Nowadays, few people in the Empire …… should know something like fireworks. As for those who dared to do it, there were almost none.
In addition to accompanying Qin Hengyi within the game scene, he could also give everyone a live broadcast of the fireworks.
Zhu Qing’an quickly made a post.
[@Zhu Qing’an V: Thank you all for your support. Tomorrow, I will give everyone a small gift.]
The fans went wild when they saw the post.
Zhu Qing’an looked at these excited and curious little fans, a little helpless and happy.
The comment section was full of support for him.
Zhu Qing’an remembered that when he first entered the entertainment industry, he had many anti-fans and people staring at him.
But now there were fewer anti-fans.
Perhaps they knew that Zhu Qing’an had a very powerful anonymous lover and was no longer on his own, so much so that they didn’t dare to come out. Maybe it was because Zhu Qing’an’s fans were too many and too passionate.
The winner of the “Dinner’s On” variety show hadn’t yet been announced.
Zhu Qing’an turned off Weibo and glanced at his light computer.
The two little cubs were sleeping quietly in the corner of the desktop.
He slid the screen and found that the wallpaper that was broken by the cubs yesterday hadn’t been repaired and was still a big black hole.
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
What exactly did they do when they burrowed into his light computer’s master program?
He checked it but there was nothing different about the light computer.
He couldn’t understand, so he had to give up.
Zhu Qing’an looked at the furry ones and couldn’t help but stretch out his finger and poke the long ears of the little rabbit.
[Ouch! Don’t poke me QAQ]
Zhu Qing’an: “…………”
He replied helplessly, “I’m sorry.”
By the way ……
He suddenly remembered one thing.
His little cubs, too, were going to celebrate the New Year for the first time.
When he showed the fireworks to Qin Hengyi, he’d bring the two little cubs into the game with him.
As for the cubs in the base, his New Year’s gift to them was to open up the base’s adoption rights so they could have new homes.
Zhu Qing’an continued working on making the fireworks.
He was getting more and more energetic, and he didn’t stop until evening.
Zhu Qing’an was too lazy to change his dusty clothes, so he went back to his bedroom to rest.
He laid on the sofa and quietly opened “False Love”.
He was curious what kind of knot he had unlocked in Qin Hengyi’s heart by cooking the New Year’s Eve dinner, and what new changes it would bring to Qin Hengyi.
Since Zhu Qing’an had to finish making the fireworks soon, he didn’t wear the holographic helmet to fully immerse himself into the game, but used the long-foegotten 2D mode.
[Welcome back to False Love!]
The familiar cave came into view.
The man in the screen also noticed him: “An?”
The teenager and him were separated by a screen.
The teenager seemed to have just finished work, he was wearing wide dark blue work clothes, his lean body wearing this set of clothes looked startling, the clothes was stained with a lot of dust and dirt.
Crystal beads of sweat dripped down the teenager’s fine black hair, staining his white cheeks.
Qin Hengyi frowned.
He felt a little heartbroken for the teenager.
The teenager was very good, he glanced at him and smiled lightly, revealing a pair of white small tiger teeth: “Mr. Qin, I cooked the New Year’s Eve dinner on the star network, have you eaten? Was it good? How did it feel?”
“……” The man paused.
He followed the channel given by the teenager and went on the live streaming website at the designated time to watch and taste the New Year’s Eve dinner cooked by the youth.
–His little friend, the way he looked when cooking, was particularly cute. Especially the way he said “Happy New Year” to the 300 million viewers with his eyebrows arched, was very pleasing to the eye. He knew for the first time that there were people who loved life so much.
Even without parents or friends, he still brought good things to others with a sincere and warm heart.
Letting people know that there was a New Year’s Eve, and that these beautiful things existed ……
Qin Hengyi felt happier.
His heart that had been empty seemed to have a little more warmth.
Like the first ray of warm sunlight reflecting in a world that was frozen.
–Even if his past was terrible. He had Zhu Qing’an, that was enough.
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
He was nervous and carefully watched the man’s demeanor through the screen.
Qin Hengyi’s crimson eyes contained an expression he couldn’t read.
But he could guess that everything was going in a good direction.
Qin Hengyi wanted to kiss him, but with the screen in the way, the man could only smile, his wolf ears twitched: “You did a great job.”
Zhu Qing’an was stunned, his eyes glittered as he smiled “Thank you Mr. Qin for the compliment ……”
He didn’t notice that the wolf’s tail behind Qin Hengyi gently swayed up with pleasure.
“……” Zhu Qing’an’s attention was inadvertently placed outside the cave within the screen.
After holding the New Year’s Eve dinner, Qin Hengyi was partially healed.
But the snow outside didn’t melt, and the tasks arranged by the system weren’t all completed.
What exactly was missing?
He couldn’t figure it out.
He could only go step by step according to his plan.
For example, start the New Year with Qin Hengyi.
Zhu Qing’an raised his head and looked at the hairy ears on top of the man’s head, and said in a mysterious manner, “Mr. Qin, in a few days, I will give you a surprise.”
His fireworks would soon be finished.
“Hm?” Qin Hengyi raised his eyebrows, and the raised eyebrows gave him a more wild look.
Zhu Qing’an muttered, “Soon you’ll know ……”
But a moment later, he murmured again, “Mr. Qin, I’m going to go prepare my surprise for you.”
Zhu Qing’an was ready to exit the game.
Unexpectedly, he found an additional prompt on the game interface.
[The game has given you a small New Year’s gift.]
New Year’s gift?
[New Year’s small gift: a small puppet that looked exactly like Qin Hengyi. But this isn’t an ordinary puppet.]
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
[Qin Hengyi Puppet: A special human-shaped Puppet that looks exactly like Qin Hengyi and can greatly promote the relationship between you and him.]
[Qin Hengyi Puppet has the following special functions.
–Function 01: To be unlocked.
–Function 02: To be unlocked.
–Function 03: To be unlocked.]
When Zhu Qing’an saw that the system had given him a small puppet, he thought the game was quite conscientious.
But when he saw the mysterious locked functions, he frowned.
The game had hung his appetite again ……
A human-shaped puppet, what kind of special functions could it have? Could it really promote the relationship between him and Qin Hengyi? How could he open those functions?
Zhu Qing’an was very clear about this game.
It wasn’t like those games on the market that stole people’s money for nothing.
The things it gave were very fantastical, it was hard for ordinary people to have, and they all had a very powerful effect.
[You have received this New Year’s gift – Qin Hengyi’s puppet! The gift will arrive in the mail in 24 hours! Please check your mail!]
[Happy New Year to the player!]
The corners of Zhu Qing’an’s lips rose, and when he wanted to close the game, another prompt popped up.
[You have successfully used the ‘Cooking Golden Finger’ once! In order to reward you, the game opens the following functions on top of the Golden Finger–]
【Cooking Golden finger 2.0: The dishes you make are not only delicious, but also have the function of healing hearts.]
[The dishes you make can make your lover’s lonely heart feel warm for a long time. Hurry up and try it!]
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
Healing Hearts ……?
This function seemed a bit magical, he would try it after making the fireworks.
Zhu Qing’an finished resting, got up and changed into new clothes, then he continued making the fireworks.
Zhu Qing’an was busy until late at night and finally finished making two batches of fireworks before the year ended.
One batch was his fans.
The other batch was sent to the game to be released with Qin Hengyi.
After making the fireworks, Zhu Qing’an didn’t call the courier robot send the fireworks to the address given in the game.
He washed his hands, went into the kitchen and got busy.
—— Enjoying fireworks, would be perfect with hot Xuan Mei tea and sushi.
There were still a few packs of Xuan Mei tea bags in the cupboard, so Zhu Qingan boiled a pot of hot water, took two small tea cups and put them together.
Then it was time to prepare the sushi.
A spoonful of rice, specially made for sushi, was wrapped in sushi seaweed and then shaped with a special grinder. The top and sides of the rice were then covered with ingredients such as caviar, crab meat, shellfish, shiitake mushrooms, and lettuce.
A very basic and easy sushi was ready.
The size of the sushi wasn’t even half a hand, it was very small and cute, and it emitted a light fragrance.
In addition to sushi, Zhu Qing’an also made two bowls of transparent and crystal salt-flavored jelly.
This jelly didn’t have any extra flavor, it only had a very fresh and refreshing feeling, both to quench thirst and to satisfy the mouth.
Zhu Qing’an made this food considering that Qin Hengyi may not like eating sweet food.
He called the nearby delivery robot and packed the sushi, jelly and xuan mei tea bags and fireworks for the robot to deliver.
Of course, there were also the jerking gloves he needed, he didn’t forget to send it too.
Zhu Qing’an glanced at the time, it was late at night.
He planned to sleep a little, and then in the second half of the night, he’d watch fireworks with him.
The holographic helmet was placed next to him and he changed into pajamas and dozed off.
Zhu Qing’an slept deeply and was woken up by the alarm clock.
When he opened his eyes, it was 2:00 a.m, and the delivery had been delivered.
It was a good time to set off fireworks.
He put on his holographic helmet and quietly entered the game.
[Welcome back to False Love!]
He closed his eyes, and in a short while, he entered the game world.
At this time, it was also dark, but there was no snowstorm like the dark night scene he had experienced before.
The ice hadn’t melted and the temperature was very low, but the weather was clear and very suitable for fireworks.
There were no torches lit inside the cave, and it was pitch black.
Zhu Qing’an fumbled to sit up and touched a soft, hairy object.
He frowned and subconsciously clutched it.
