Zhou Qing’an was enlightened by his own wit.
–Since the paper man probably couldn’t understand these things about stray animal bases.
Then why not just say that he was in the livestock farmer business, simple and crude. And it was all related to small animals, rounding down to the bottom was his real job.
Qin Hengyi: “……..”
He looked off-screen at the teenager, who was very nervous and shy because he had answered his question, his cheeks flushed and his eyes watery like he was about to cry. He could see that the teenager was afraid of being discarded by him, but was eager to be recognized by him.
The livestock farmer….
The fair young man surrounded by a pile of stuffed chicks and ducklings came to his mind.
“Mr. Qin, Qin?” The teenager acted like his speech was shaking from nervousness, his eyes were red, and his voice was soft and pitiful: “Why aren’t you talking?”
The kid was too clingy, he was just silent for a while…
It really was a matter of constant coaxing.
Qin Hengyi was a bit helpless and said in a deep voice, “I like your work, cheer up.”
The youngster was stunned, his eyebrows curved into crescents, and his laughter was clear: “Thank you! Thank you for the compliment!”
When he smiled, he revealed a pair of tender, white, tiger teeth, which were very attractive.
“Did you find what I told you to look for?” Qin Hengyi asked.
Zhu Qing’an: “……..”
Now that several days had passed, if he couldn’t find it again, Qin Hengyi would become suspicious.
He froze in place, silent for a long time, at a loss as to what to do-.
In the end, it was this game system that saved him.
A text box popped up, ending Zhu Qing’an’s meeting with the paper man.
[You’re late in fulfilling your lover’s request! Interaction Value – 10 points!
You now have 0 points of interaction. There are 30 points left to open Memory Fragment 02.]
Zhu Qing’an: “……….”
[New Quest – Get a new room for your lover!]
The last time he had entered Qin Hengyi’s room in a holographic manner.
The room didn’t have a single window or door, the walls were black, the floor was damp, and the entire room exuded an oppressive and dark atmosphere. Normal people who stayed in there for a long time would be more or less unhinged.
If he could, he wanted to change the room for the paper man, and the paper man would definitely be happy, as well as to have a better experience the next time he went into holographic mode himself.
Zhu Qing’an looked at the frame, his eyes bright.
Room change, what are the conditions?
[Just reach 30 interaction points! You can get a new room for your lover!]
Now with an interaction value of zero, Zhu Qing’an: “……………………..”
This game…is saving to choose his most difficult time and bully him 🙂
[Currently, the only way to increase the interaction value is to meet your lover’s last request.]
Zhu Qing’an: “……..”
Qin Hengyi’s last request was to see the souvenir items left behind from their relationship.
Zhu Qing’an subconsciously went to poke the fork, not expecting to be able to turn it off.
He curled up in his blanket, scratching his head.
— In the end, he decided to honestly look for their “love souvenirs for Qin Hengyi.”
One, so as not to make a mistake, and two, so that he could swipe the interaction value to get a new room for the paper man.
A love souvenir was usually something that couples gave to each other.
His identity in the eyes of the paper man was a livestock farmer… What would a livestock farmer give to his lover when he fell in love?
Zhu Qing’an nestled in his blanket, closed his eyes and thought carefully about it.
After a night, he came up with an answer.
–knowing what kind of things to show Qin Hengyi.
At the same time, the ship also arrived at his Cloud Dreams Stray Animal Base.
These days, the base was taken care of by the temporary workers he had hired.
All sorts of furry little animals, seeing their master return, scrambled to be the first to come.
Their fluffy furs smelled good in the sun, and their beady eyes were so moist and clean that it made Zhu Qing’an’s heart tremble.
He hugged them one by one, and only then did they barely calm down.
After the work, Zhu Qing’an returned to his cabin in the base.
As soon as he arrived at a place with internet, his light brain started to blink nonstop.
He received a hundred thousand from Star Entertainment on his light brain wallet.
One hundred thousand yuan.
Zhu Qing’an froze for a long time, he couldn’t help but smile as he sat on the couch, looking at the deposit over and over again, he was happy for a long time.
He could finally pay the rent and not be afraid of not having money to pay the rent and letting the pups wander.
In a good mood today, he decided to go to the countryside and buy some uncommon game for the pups who hadn’t tasted fresh meat for a long time.
He also happened to be able to buy a “souvenir” of his relationship with the paper man.
Zhu Qing’an changed into a slightly worn out, coarse clothing, carried a basket and went out.
These clothes were durable and not dirty, when he went out to the countryside, he usually wore these kinds of clothes.
The teenager was wrapped in a gray puff of fabric, looking a bit rustic.
He took a small hovercar to go to the base of the countryside, Zhu Qing’an was bored, he anxiously stared at the light brain of “false love” for a long time.
–This game was like magic.
He couldn’t help but open it.
It was a good idea to get something to use as the “love souvenir” anyway.
Qin Hengyi was puzzled by Zhu Qing’an’s sudden disappearance without answering his question.
This time, the teenager once again appeared on the screen in the corner of the space, and he decided to ask for the truth.
The man frowned, his face slightly gloomy.
But when he saw the teenager’s current costume, he was inexplicably stunned…
His teenager was dressed shabbily. A coat was hastily worn over the top, worn so many times that the edges were frayed and worn.
The white skin showed carelessly through the small holes, setting off his whole body to be extraordinarily pitiful, like a bullied kitten.
The teenager was carrying a tattered small basket, sweat staining his black hair, so he must have just finished his work.
The teenager glanced at Qin Hengyi, subconsciously revealed a gentle and bright smile, like a flower blooming in the barren land, piercing the heart.
So…this child’s life, was it that difficult?
How had he not noticed before?
Qin Hengyi thought.
He also understood why Zhu Qing’an was fidgeting and wouldn’t talk about work.
It was because he was really afraid that he would dislike it.
Before, Zhu Qing’an had probably emptied his family’s fortune and bought decent clothes to use to meet with him on weekdays, just so that he wouldn’t be disliked with him.
But when he accepted the other’s job, the other seemingly dared to take the first step and carefully appear as his true appearance. Eager to be accepted and noticed by him.
Likewise, the souvenir of their love was likely something that the teenager had once given to Qin Hengyi…
Now the teenager wouldn’t show it to him because he was afraid that Qin Hengyi, who had lost his memory and didn’t remember their past, would dislike and loathe it.
Although Qin Hengyi didn’t have any memories of Zhu Qing’an. However, his heart still tightly clenched.
This kid ah…
Zhu Qing’an’s brain circuit was completely out of sync with Qin Hengyi’s.
After he entered the game, this game actually added a little interaction value to him with an attack of conscience! He laughed happily, his smile rightfully seen and misunderstood by Qin Hengyi.
Zhu Qing’an returned to his senses and wanted to tell Qin Hengyi that he had found their love souvenir and would be able to get it out soon.
But the Lightbrain suddenly dinged at that moment.
A friend he met on the Variety show sent a voice message. [Back home? Have you eaten yet?]
After he touched his flat stomach and looked at his poor outfit that looked a bit rustic at the moment, he took a picture of himself and jokingly sent it over.
“Look at the clothes I’m wearing now, how tattered they are. I can’t even afford to eat.”
Zhu Qing ‘an, who just took hundreds of thousands of dollars, was clever.
Although Zhu Qing’an was connected to the communication, the game was still running in the background.
Although Qin Hengyi couldn’t see the screen, he could hear the voice…
“I can’t even afford to eat now…” the teenager’s voice was still soft and glutinous, and his tone was light like he was talking about a very common thing, but it turned into an awl and stuck into the man’s heart.
His cold heart completely gripped into a ball, he was very distressed.
Zhu Qing’an, who held a hundred thousand dollars but couldn’t even afford to eat, arrived at his destination after a few quips with Xia Xue.
Zhu Qing’an also forgot about the game.
He carried a small basket and went to the home of a game seller, spending a few thousand interstellar coins on some meat for his cubs.
After shopping, Zhu Qing’an remembered that he wanted to buy the “love souvenir” for Qin Hengyi, so he went to the countryside market and spent a few hundred interstellar coins to buy the fake “love souvenir”.
After returning home.
He put the love souvenir in the yard, and then took the game into the kitchen to make food for the cubs.
The game he bought was a dozen pieces of beef.
In the interstellar age, ancient Earth livestock had been rare enough to qualify as an expensive “game.”
The soft, raw beef was thrown into the hot pan, and with a zipping sound, the piece of beef right next to the bottom of the pan was instantly fried to a golden color.
Zhu Qing’an cut the steak into small pieces, and after that, he fried up a second steak, then fried a second steak, the third, the fourth… There were so many steaks in the house, each steak had to be fried.
Zhu Qing’an worked late into the night to fry the steaks and then called the pups to come and eat them. A large group of cubs followed, whining.
Zhu Qing’an watched the pups eat, and suddenly realized that he hadn’t eaten anything.
The steak had been fried, and there was a bit of marginal beef left. He took the minced beef and a small, unused green pepper, fried it in a dish of green pepper stir-fry and spooned in a bowl of white rice for his own dinner.
He sat in the corner and ate his meal, in front of him was a large group of small cubs, soft and furry, in the warm yellow light, looked particularly warm and touching.
Zhu Qing’an could not remember how long it had been since they had eaten meat.
If he didn’t have money, he wouldn’t be able to pay the rent, he and the pups would be homeless, and the pups would be stray animals.
If there was no money…
A lot of bad things could happen.
He got 100,000 coins this time, so what happened after that?
He wasn’t an artist signed to the company now, but a very ordinary group act, earning money that could only barely sustain him, and Star Entertainment would only work with him until the end of the variety show, after that, there would be no relationship.
If he wanted to make money steadily for a long time… officially joining the entertainment industry and signing with an entertainment company was the best way for Zhu Qing’an.
Zhu Qing’an opened his light brain.
After the series of events in the Variety show, Zhu Qing’an had little popularity in the entertainment industry, and many imperial entertainment companies also threw an olive branch to him.
Signing invitations crowded his inbox.
There were also many small fans on Weibo, begging him to join the entertainment industry.
They all wanted their teenager to have a better and brighter future, and Zhu Qing’an acting in group performances was simply a waste.
[Join the entertainment industry. We’ll always protect you, no one can hurt you.]
[I’ll always shout for you! You’re my movie star!]
[Please, join the entertainment industry! I want to see you actually on the screen!]
[Now! Now! Get in the entertainment business! We want to make you better!]
In the past, Zhu Qing’an liked to be quiet and was not good at communicating with people, believing that he didn’t fit in with the entertainment industry.
But over the past few days, Zhu Qing’an found out…although there were many bad people in the entertainment industry, there were more people who supported him.
How about…joining the entertainment industry?
There were dozens of invitations to sign with entertainment companies in Zhu Qing’an’s inbox.
He looked and chose the entertainment company he wanted to sign with in the future.
In the end, he chose Dream Treasure Entertainment Company.
Dream Treasure Entertainment was one of the very well resourced companies within the entertainment industry.
It was different from those more archaic and strict companies that specialized in cultivating the acting industry’s drama bones. It was more lively and flexible and specialized in cultivating popular stars that fit the tastes of young people.
Zhu Qing’an sent an acknowledgment of agreement to join to Dream Treasure Entertainment.
Soon, there was a reply from there, asking Zhu Qing’an to find time to come to Dream Treasure Entertainment, they had already prepared a new type of variety show “Being Poor” for Zhu Qing’an, just waiting for the other to join.
Zhu Qing’an frowned slightly and muttered.
What kind of strange variety show was “Being Poor”…
He closed his inbox and picked up a bite of food, glanced inadvertently at False Love on his optic desk
It seemed like he was… going to talk to Qin Hengyi yesterday, and as a result, halfway through the conversation, Xia Xue sent a communication and the game was interrupted.
Zhu Qing’an did not hesitate to click on the game.
He had nothing to be afraid of, their “love item”, had already been prepared! Just waiting for the paper man to ask for it!
Today’s Qin Hengyi seemed to be different.
The eyes he used to look at Zhu Qing’an were cold and blank…but this time, they were more than a little sympathetic and distressed.
The teenager was eating, and in the large bowl… there was only a small piece of rice, and only one dish, green pepper stir-fried beef, although it looked like it was well done, the amount was very, very small, and there was only a little bit of ground beef, probably the leftover sides that people sold.
The teenager’s thin arms instantly became extraordinarily piercing.
No wonder he was so skinny.
Zhu Qing’an didn’t notice the man’s difference at all, he plucked a mouthful of rice, his cheeks bulging with food were particularly cute.
“Mr. Qin, have you… eaten yet?”
Zhu Qing’an subconsciously spoke.
But he regretted it after he said it, Qin Hengyi was a paper person and had been in such a small space all day, where was he going to eat…
The man’s brow furrowed.
–He’d woken up here without ever touching food, and he wasn’t hungry.
The word “food” had never crossed his mind either.
But the fact that he wouldn’t eat or be hungry was nothing compared to other strange things.
Not to mention he wasn’t even sure if he was a living being that needed to eat.
Zhu Qing’an sighed as he looked at the paper man’s gloomy demeanor.
As expected, paper men didn’t need to eat.
But in order to play the role of a sweet lover, the young man’s cheeks were flushed, his eyebrows were lowered, and his voice was soft: “Didn’t eat ah…?”
He thought about it and glanced at his food, “Actually, I would love to have a meal with you…” his voice was still soft, and it was painful to hear when he said these types of aggravating statements.
“But because of your health, you’ll have to stay there and I’ll have to watch you from the screen…”
“I’ve missed you so much, I want you to touch me.”
“Wanted you to have dinner with me.”
The first few words that Zhu Qing’an said were all lies, only the last one was true.
Zhu Qing’an had longed for someone to eat with him since he was little.
He would cook a lot of delicious dishes just for the sake of the person who would eat with him in the future.
Unfortunately, until he had practiced his culinary skills to perfection, that person who could eat with him didn’t appear.
Qin Hengyi listened to the pitiful and soft words of the teenager and had the urge to reach across the screen to rub the teenager’s aggrieved cheeks.
This kid, how was he so attached to him.
[Ding! The game system opens a new feature ‘Love Mailbox’!]
A text box suddenly popped up, blocking the game screen.
Zhu Qing’an: “……..”
Love, love mailbox?
What was it?
[You can send things to your lover, such as the food you cooked or clothes you knitted so that they can still feel the warmth of your presence across the screen.]
Zhu Qing’an had only heard of game companies using the name of game protagonists to send things to players.
But he’d never seen… a game company using the name of a game protagonist to reach out and ask for something from a player…
Zhu Qing’an: “…….”
[The system detects that you want to have dinner with your lover. You can cook a meal yourself and send it over to him to accompany you.]
Zhu Qing’an: “……….”
He rubbed his head, his eyebrows downcast.
In fact, he’d wanted to share his meal with someone for a long time, even if it wasn’t really for the game’s main character, it was probably for someone else.
[This feature increases the value of your interaction with your lover! Come send something to your lover.]
One dish for interaction value! Worth it!
The next morning, Zhu Qing’an went to the nearby mall and bought some ingredients back.
He wanted to make what he was best at – strawberry mousse cupcakes.
The pink cupcake, drizzled with special strawberry sauce, let the strawberry sauce blend into the jelly-like mousse cupcake, sprinkled with coconut… and he didn’t forget to put a fresh strawberry.
The unique sweet aroma of the strawberry mousse cake spilled out of the kitchen and into the sunlight.
After making the cake, Zhu Qing’an cut it into heart shapes and wrapped it up carefully with the pink cake wrapping, tied with a scented ribbon, and tied it into a bow.
It was as if Zhu Qing’an was making the sweetest cake for his beloved one.
Zhu Qing’an had a look at the cupcakes, thought about it, picked up a pen and paper, wrote a small pink note, and stuck it on.
[Mr. Qin. I’ve made a little cake for you. It’s strawberry and creamy and very sweet and delicious.
I hope you’ll like it.
Just like I like you.
–-Like your strawberry cake: I wish you peace]
Zhu Qing’an: “…….”
The cake couldn’t really be delivered to the paper man anyway.
He took the cupcake with him and went out to mail it to the address given by the game.
But when he reached the courtyard, he suddenly remembered that the “love souvenir” he bought for Qin Hengyi yesterday had not been given.
That’s right, it hadn’t been given.
Zhu Qing’an put a big bucket of chicken feed in front of two yellow and tender chicks. He bought two chicks in the old market, which was the “love memorial” he used to coax the paper man.
He was a livestock farmer, who adored his paper man. Zhu Qing ‘an believed that when livestock farmers fell in love, chickens and ducks must appear.
Then he could rightfully say to the man… These two little chicken cubs were raised by me and you. When you are not here, I look at them… When I look at them, I think of the things we did together, and I think of my beloved you.
They are very important to me.
The little chickens, unaware of the great significance that Zhu Qing’an gave them, fluttered their tiny little wings and snatched their food.
Zhu Qing’an had a good look at them.
Suddenly, he remembered that there were animal mail companies nearby that specialized in sending to the emperor star…….
Zhu Qing’an brought a small cage and put the two chicken pups in it.
He was going to send the chicks and the cake together.
Anyway, the game also said that the lover could “receive” everything that was sent out.
The next time he started the game, Zhu Qing’an just needed to say, “Our love souvenir, I’ve sent it to you….”
It was none of his business whether he really receives it or not 🙂
Off the game.
Zhu Qing’an didn’t have to worry about the safety of the chicken pups, the animals sent would receive better service than people. Even if the game did reject the chickens, they would still send them back in good condition.
Zhu Qing’an finished sending the chicken pups with the cake and returned home.
The Empire Star Express ship was transported at a speed close to the speed of light.
By this time, the delivery must have arrived at its destination.
He couldn’t help but think… if the cold and sultry paper man really received his girlish pink cupcake, the little note filled with “I’m better than cake” and two chirping soft “love souvenirs”, what would his expression be.
He chuckled a little at the thought.
It was impossible for the man to receive it.
Qin Hengyi was just a virtual game character.
He thought to himself, and with a strange twist, pulled out his light brain and opened the game–.
The game interface showed a text box.
[A ‘strawberry mousse cupcake’ and two ‘noisy chicks’ that you sent to your lover have been received by your lover!’]

Cute! I’m really wondering what the grand mystery behind this is (my immediate thought was this old romance movie where two people fell in love via a mailbox that letters could be received in even though the two are in different times) but I’m probably wrong. Intriguing though!
Thanks for your hard work translating!
“Noisy” chicks loool
Thanks for the translation!
That is so cute!
Thank you for translating!!!
