I’d like to see some of the monumental items we left behind when we were in love….

Zhu Qing’an silently echoed the man’s words in his heart.
False Lover Zhu Qing’an: “…….”

Where could he get the items? No, they’d never been in love before.

Of course, Zhu Qing’an wouldn’t tell the truth and couldn’t find anything to show Qin Hengyi.
He frowned, annoyed.

As soon as the young man sulked, his pitiful air appeared heavier. The corners of his eyes were tinged with a seductive blush, and his cheeks were even more red, with a bit of coyness.

He couldn’t think of a reason, so he could only find a random excuse to excuse himself: “Mr. Qin, looking for, looking for those things, it may take a long time… You will have to wait for a long time.”

He couldn’t help but lower his head and clutch the corner of his cloth, an action that became evasive and shy in the man’s eyes.

It really was…shyness?
He was embarrassed to agree to such an ambiguous request?
Qin Hengyi thought.

Qin Hengyi: “It’s okay, I’m willing to wait.”

Zhu Qing’an who thought the other party would say forget it: “……..”

“Then, then thank you Mr. Qin for being willing to wait…” Zhu Qing’an replied, the softness of his voice could easily be mistaken for shyness.

“But, what do you do for a living?” Qin Hengyi said in a soft voice, “You can say this one.”

Not so shy that he wouldn’t even say this to him.

Zhu Qing’an: “……..”
He was not sure that the paper man, who needed him to explain the concept of “love”, understood the whole “stray animal base” and “showbiz groupie” thing.

Besides, he didn’t have a stable and clear job, so he must be very vague about it.

Zhu Qing’an thought about it, and decided to muddle through.

“Ah…?” The young man’s cheeks reddened even more, and his earlobes, hidden by his dark hair, reddened like a strawberry fudge as he fidgeted, “I… my job… Mr. Qin, I… …”

He was really that coy… Qin Hengyi raised his eyebrows, interrupting the young man’s swallowing and fiddling words, “Alright, when you’ve slowed down, talk to me again. Also the souvenirs of our previous love, you take your time to find them, there’s no hurry.”

The teenager was really too shy, making Qin Hengyi have to stop his words in time to give him relief. Otherwise, he was afraid that he would be so shy that he would shrink into a soft ball.
Even talking to him about a job, he was this shy….
What a kid.

Did he think he was so useless at his job that he was afraid he would be disowned if he said it? Or was it because the job was too dangerous and he was afraid of making his lover feel insecure?

Qin Hengyi laughed softly in his heart, his obscure red eyes clearing a bit.

  Zhu Qing’an pacified the man and finally was able to quit the game.

The “memory fragment” he almost traded for his first kiss had been completely forgotten.


He still didn’t know why the game had given him the Starry Sky Flower.

Zhu Qing’an sat down on the sofa and held up the box with the starry sky flower in it, looking to the left and right, hoping to find some clues.

At the bottom of the box was a small line.


[Please don’t return your lover’s gift, our company will refuse to accept it].

Zhu Qing’an: “……….”

The little gnome woke up and was very happy to see the starry sky flower of his dreams, his eyes were like sweet chocolate beans, and he jumped around the starry sky flower, making soft chirping noises to thank Zhu Qing’an.

Zhu Qing’an looked at the little gnome that fulfilled his wish and smiled softly.

He put the little gnome and the starry sky flower together and let them play together. The gnome was so small that it couldn’t do any harm to the starry sky flower.

Zhu Qing’an lay back on the couch and opened Weibo-.

Peng Yue’s deliberately sarcastic portrayal of Zhu Qing’an had been fired to the highest level.

【Obviously you can buy an imitation of Starflower, why won’t Zhu Qing’an buy them? [I’m afraid he’s stingy.]

[I knew this kind of person was selfish and stingy, so you’re just going to watch the cub not get its wish? Do you have to buy the real starflower?]

The depiction of the black tactics was extremely bad, although the discerning people could see that this was all Peng Yue alone bought the navy. But if this continued, it would really have a negative impact on Zhu Qing’an.

Zhu Qing’an: “……….”

He looked at the real starflower in front of him, and at the black man who questioned why he didn’t buy a fake instead.


His heart inexplicably darkened.

Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to darken his heart for long.


Someone who had no intention of bumping into the truth reversed the whole thing-.

@AnimalBaseWorker: [I’m the stray animal base worker who works with Zhu Qing’an on a variety show. I thought I’d take to Weibo to express my shock and admiration for Zhu Qing’an.

  Zhu Qing’an received a delivery from Emperor Star yesterday, and not only was he not surprised, he even calmly asked a passer-by if the delivery was a mistake.
The first time I met someone who treats the emperor star express so calmly, I’m afraid he’s a god man who regards money as dirt.

And, after he finished, he went back to his room. Passing by his dorm room….
I accidentally bumped into him as he unwrapped the delivery and pulled out a starflower soaked in nutrient solution.
Yes, it was a starflower, the purest and most advanced kind. 🙂
  
 Such a person doesn’t give a damn about what you call imitations, right, and didn’t even bother to take to Weibo to clarify that he already had the real Starflower].

Weibo blew up the moment this news was announced-.

[Who says little brother won’t buy the Starry Sky flower, he already has the real Starry Sky flower, why would he want to buy a fake one?]


[Oh, my God! Turns out little brother is the real deep, deep, deep cover! Generously buying a starflower and not even bothering to let us know! ……..]


[I love Zhu Qing’an’s character! Restraint! Deep cover! Buddhism!

This Weibo post quickly became a Weibo trending topic, overwhelming a number of big and small celebrities, bringing more fans to the fledgling Zhu Qing’an.

At the same time, everyone’s attention was on the artist Peng Yue, who was previously on Weibo to mock Zhu Qing’an.

The tweet, in which Peng Yue asked cynically why Zhu Qing’an didn’t buy a Starry Sky flower replica to soothe the cub, instantly became a hot topic that was mocked by the entire internet.

[I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen a real Starry Night flower before, but I’m not sure if I need to buy a fake one.]


[He’s much more generous than you. He’s not like you. You’re so stingy, you can only buy fakes, even if you can afford to buy real ones.]


[Even if he didn’t have a real flower, he wouldn’t buy a fake one to fool his cub. You think everyone is like you?]

In a statement, the company that owned the ‘I Love Animals’ variety show, Star Entertainment released a statement.

[The company has also made a statement on the several incidents of slandering Mr. Zhu’s participation in our variety show: ‘Why don’t you feed the cubs?
Peng Yue, an artist of Mairang Entertainment, has deliberately made up a false story to smear our temporary artist Mr. Zhu, and led his fans to attack him using words like ‘mean’ and ‘selfish’, and we are going to sue him according to the provisions of the Imperial Vocal Protection Law. Mairang Entertainment and its artist Peng Yue.]

Meanwhile, the Imperial Starflower Species Protection Association, also took to Weibo regarding Peng Yue’s purchase of the Starry Sky flower imitations.

The Imperial Starry Night Flower Species Protection Association: [Imperial law clearly states that imitations of special flower species such as the Starry Sky Flower are not allowed to be bought and circulated in the market, preventing fraudulent purchases with counterfeit goods. Once you find imitations in the market, be sure to report them to the government.]
  
 [When Mr. Peng found a Starflower imitation on the market, not only did he not report it, he bought it for his own private collection and even used obscene language to encourage others to force them to buy it!
The act is against Imperial law, and we have contacted the government to detain Peng Yue].

As soon as the two Weibo posts were sent out – netizens instantly mocked even more, and one could even imagine Peng Yue’s face when he saw these reversals.

Peng Yue’s career in the entertainment industry, and even his entire personality, was feared to have been ruined by this self-inflicted incident.

This incident also made the victim, Zhu Qing’an, a small hit in the entertainment industry, and everyone knew that such a person existed-.

 Signing invitations from major entertainment companies had been handed into Zhu Qing’an’s mailbox.

*

Zhu Qing’an had turned off Weibo long ago, completely unaware and uninterested in the reversal of events that followed. He always liked to be quiet, which was why he only stopped at group performance and didn’t really set foot in the entertainment industry.

Zhu Qing’an prepared a simple dinner for himself and his little gnome, eating it carefully and figuring out his next plan.
This variety show was coming to an end….
He didn’t know yet why he had gotten the flower, but the gnome had gotten its wish.
He’d also get a 100,000 reward.

Probably the day after tomorrow, he would be able to return to the long-lost Stray Animal Base – and meet his pups! As well as announcing with the pups the good news of having obtained funding.


When Zhu Qing’an thought about it, his cheeks would flush with joy. He rubbed his cheeks and puffed into his blanket, only half of his head showing.

As he nestled in his blanket, his fingers couldn’t help but reach for the game “False Love” again….

He was aware of the man’s dark, eerie red eyes in his mind.

His paper man…wanted to see some souvenir items from their love affair.

Fake lover Zhu Qing’an, “…”
Where could he find it?

He certainly couldn’t reject the man head-on, and if he did, the man would definitely get suspicious.

Moreover – Zhu Qing’an, who had no experience in love, couldn’t think of any souvenir items that would be left behind by a person who fell in love.


Zhu Qing’an rolled up a blanket and thought about it.
He didn’t know where to think… Two blushes appeared on his white face.

There was one more question….
The paper man also asked him what he did for a living.

The game was about to start, the more Zhu Qing’an thought, the more confused he got, he didn’t have the guts to face the man directly, he had to poke into the system bar….


Clicking on the Qin Hengyi exclusive memory album that he had wanted to see for a long time, but unfortunately never had time to look at.

He was curious about the past of his paper man. What did the paper man do… before he lost his memory? Why did he have amnesia? Why did he have mania?


He had thought that he would be able to learn the full extent of the man’s memories through the one memory fragment he had obtained this time.

But after Zhu Qing’an opened the photo album, he realized that he was thinking too much before.
This cunning game wouldn’t pull out all the old secrets at once.

The memory fragment was just a small three-dimensional video that was less than a minute long-…

About Qin Hengyi’s past.

The video was played from God’s perspective.


The video was of a blond teenager of no more than fifteen years old, wearing a grey uniform and carrying a large bucket of agricultural tools as he walked under the sun.
It looked like, he was going to plant something.

The blond teenager’s eyebrows were very similar to Qin Hengyi.
But at a closer look, Zhu Qing”an subconsciously thought that they were not the same person.

The blond teenager had a pair of blue eyes that were as blue as the bright and clear blue sky, not at all like Qin Hengyi’s pair of red eyes that were gloomy and dark.


The incomparably warm golden sunlight, enveloped the tall figure of the teenager, setting off his temperament, unusually cheerful and sunny.

The teenager walked to the field.
What was planted in the field, even more so, made Zhu Qing’an tremble.
—Starry Sky Flowers.
  
  The starflowers were bright and beautiful, like a large piece of the firmament floating down to the ground.

The teenager pocketed a piece of fertilizer, squatted down, and hummed a little song to fertilize the Starry Sky flowers.

  Not long after, a female voice rang out, “001, it’s time to go home-“

The teenager responded with a sunny, cheerful smile, “OK.”

The video ended here.

Zhu Qing’an finished watching the memory fragment and heavily knitted his eyebrows.

…The teenage Qin Hengyi and the adult Qin Hengyi were not the same at all.
One was cheerful like an angel, the other gloomy like a demon.

Qin Hengyi’s eyes when he was a teenager were the color of a very clean blue sky. Why did they now…turn into a color that resembled being dyed red with blood?
And… why was Qin Hengyi’s previous name 001, did he not have a name before?

What was more confusing to Zhu Qing’an-
The video showed a mountain of starflowers.

Today the number of starflowers born each year was less than 100.
It was impossible for the starry sky flowers to exist in the wild.
Unless it was three or four hundred years ago, when the environment hadn’t changed again.

All of the above doubts… might have to wait until the next memory fragment to be revealed.
Zhu Qing’an thought.

[Memory Fragment 01 Viewed! To open Memory Shard 02, make the interaction value 30 points!

Zhu Qing’an: “…….”

For the sake of the interaction value, Zhu Qing’an exited the memory fragment and tapped the small space where the man was.

As usual, Qin Hengyi appeared in front of him.
The man glanced at him and said in a quiet voice, “Did you find what we used to have?”

Zhu Qing’an: “…….”
He cringed, his cheeks reddened and his eyes went red as he dropped his head and mumbled, “Sorry… I haven’t found it yet… I’m sorry I’ve kept Mr. Qin waiting…. ”

This sincere and bashful response from the teenager made the man’s heart tremble, and he even helped comfort him: “It’s okay.”
This kid was too respectful and cowardly…?
It was totally a foul.

Were some of the items from their previous love affair being hidden too deep by…the teenager, and he had forgotten where he put them?
Qin Hengyi was helpless, he laughed lightly in his heart and shook his head slightly.
  
  After thinking hard, Zhu Qing’an decided to answer the man’s question about his job first.
He certainly couldn’t just say that he was the owner of a stray animal base.
The paper man wouldn’t necessarily understand….
He wanted to be as concise as possible.

“But, but Mr. Qin…” Zhu Qing’an fidgeted, “I can tell you about my job…”

The man’s eyes lit up and he nodded.


He looked at the shy teen whose cheeks were getting redder and looked even more reluctant.
The other was still a little afraid of being disliked for saying it.
But no matter what, he wouldn’t dislike the kid who loved to cherish him so much.

The teenager gathered his courage and clutched the corner of his shirt, his cheeks like ripe peach, he lifted his hazel eyes and looked at the man firmly, his careful eyes seemed to contain some expectation of being able to be noticed by the man….

“Mr. Qin, Mr. Qin… I’m a livestock farmer…”

It was true what he said, he worked with people raising pigs before he started the stray animal base.

Thanks for translating this, I’ve been enjoying it so far! I’m in a people dating game character phase so finding this story was great, but also frustrating. Kind of annoyed at ZQ, just tell him you own an animal shelter, how is that even hard to explain? Just how dumb does he think his paperman is? Even factoring in that he thinks QH isn’t a real person, his decision still seems dumb and unnecessary. If he wasn’t so busy acting “shy” maybe he could even weave a story that QH was picked up like his other strays. He could even say that after taking care of QH they got together, and QH never talked about his past to him. Mention that QH told him he wanted to focus on the present with ZQ…I’ve obviously thought too deeply about this…

I get that they want to do a ‘face-slapping’ thing but the thing about owning fakes sounds like complete nonsense. If it’s so rare that no one can get it, I would expect imitations to be available. Since its obvious they can’t get they real deal, like fake roses or Starry Night copies.
