TCYEC Ch. 13

Xue Chengxiu coaxed his son to sleep. As soon as he turned on the computer in the study, his cell phone rang.

 Pei Ziteng mumbled on the other side of the phone: “Daddy, if your little cub is asleep, come out for a drink immediately.”

 “Fuck off, no time.” Xue Chengxiu laughed and cursed.

 “Don’t, we brothers haven’t drank together in a long time, you are the only one who’s not here,” Pei Ziteng said: “We are in Taiwei Palace, don’t talk nonsense, and hurry up.”

 Pei Ziteng on the other side hung up the phone with the certainty that Xue Chengxiu would come.

 Xue Chengxiu put away the phone, smiled helplessly, thought for a while, turned off the computer that had just been turned on, and instructed the helper aunt to take care of his son, then changed clothes and went out.

 Taiwei Palace is a private club. Its name is taken from “Bu Tian Ge”——the heavenly palace Taiwei Palace, also the name of the palace of the emperor. The interior of the club was similar to the imperial dynasty palaces. The members of the club are all foreign royal family members and well-known entrepreneurs and artists; thus Taiwei Palace is among the top private clubs in China.

 As soon as Xue Chengxiu walked into Taiwei Palace, the waiter immediately greeted him, bowed slightly, and said in a low voice: “Mr. Xue, good evening.”

 The waiters in Taiwei Palace undergo strict training. They must remember each club member’s name, appearance, age, preferences, etc., in order to provide members with more thoughtful service.

 “Mr. Pei’s party, where are they?” Xue Chengxiu asked.

 “At the Vermilion Palace, Mr. Xue, please follow me.” The waiter led Xue Chengxiu to the door of the Vermilion Palace, rang the doorbell, and said to the intercom at the door: “Mr. Pei, Mr. Ding, Mr. Zhang, Mr. Zhuang, Mr. Xue is here.”

The door was opened, and Xue Chengxiu pushed the door in. The few people who had come first had already started drinking.

 Seeing him, Pei Ziteng laughed and said: “It’s not easy to let our father Xue come out.”

 Xue Chengxiu smoothly took a glass of wine from Zhang Zhenqi, sat down on the sofa and took a sip, “You single dogs don’t realize the joy of being a father.”

 Several people booed, “It sounds like you are not a single dog. You don’t have any more sons than us.[1]

 Xue Chengxiu smiled but said nothing.

 At that time, due to the situation, he had to find a surrogate to give birth to Xue Yunmu. This child was not in his plan. However, after raising the child in the past few years, he gradually realized the joy of raising a child. His slightly impetuous mind also slowly calmed down.

“Okay, every time you talk about your son, you seem so happy.” Ding Guanghe rolled his eyes, thinking didn’t he just have a good son, as if no one else could give birth.

 Pei Ziteng sat down beside Xue Chengxiu with a cigarette in his mouth, threw a stick to him, and said smoothly, “I heard that there is little movement on Xue Chengji’s side?”

 “You are very well-informed.” Xue Chengxiu lit the cigarette, took a puff, and slowly breathed out the smoke. The whole person leaned on the sofa very relaxedly, which was completely different from the person who was always sitting on the sofa with a stiff posture during the day.

 The few of them are brothers since they were young. They had a fated relationship and were even closer than their own real brothers. Although they always looked like they disliked each other on weekdays, when something happened, the positions of these several people were basically the same. Consistent with each other.

 “We also heard that the other side is planning to use the beauty trap.” Zhuang Ze shook the golden liquor in the glass, with a mild smile on his face, looking at Zhang Zhenqi, “You said that the illegitimate son was going to give our Xue Da[2] few beauties he can find.”

 Zhang Zhenqi chuckled and commented: “Idiot.”

 If Xue Chengxiu could be swayed by a so-called beauty, I am afraid he would not have survived till today. The old man of the Xue family, don’t know how his brain circuit got twisted. He supported an illegitimate son to fight against Xue family’s righteous heir. Is he afraid that the Xue family is not messy enough?

 “Daddy Xue now only has his son in his heart,” Pei Ziteng laughed: “No beauty can get into his eyes.”

 “Bullshit.” Xue Chengxiu glanced at him, took a sip from the cup, inadvertently thinking of the teenager who left his home more than two hours ago.

 Exquisite and beautiful, clear eyes, tall, thin and possessing a slender figure, and also a good cook. That young man from head to toe was in line with his aesthetics, making him think Xue Chengji that idiot finally understood how to choose people.

At first, Xue Chengxiu really thought that the boy was someone Xue Chengji sent over.

 After all, the day when he first met the boy in the cemetery, few people knew that it was the day he went to worship Aunt Li, but Xue Chengji was one of those few people.

He also dared to start with his son[3], which made Xue Chengxiu extremely angry.

At that moment, he had felt a murderous rage.

 But then he got the juvenile’s investigation data. After giving many types of bait, he had to admit that he had to look away from the teenager.[4]

 The child was a simple 18-year-old boy, whose resume was so clean that it could be written on a piece of paper, and was an artist Wei Xiaofeng signed into the company, and had nothing to do with Xue Chengji.

 Xue Chengxiu couldn’t tell whether he was disappointed or relieved.

 But the kid’s cooking skills are really top-notch, and he is still his creditor. It’s pretty good to use this identity to coerce him to cook for himself.

 “What are you thinking about? Why are you laughing so lewdly?” Pei Ziteng poked Xue Chengxiu with his elbow, and wondered how he could drink so elegantly while looking lewd.

 Ding Guanghe smiled and said, “He must have thought of some beauty.”

 “Don’t just think about it. Bring her out to meet the brothers.” Zhang Zhenqi echoed.

 Xue Chengxiu drank the wine in the cup and said casually: “Okay, when the beauty of Xue Chengji arrives, I must show her to you.”

 All of them looked bored from the discussion so Pei Ziteng remarked “We want to see the beauty hidden in your house”.

“What do you want to do to my family?” Xue Chengxiu raised his eyebrows, the expression on his face clearly said, “You want to handle a three-year-old kid, you are such a beast.”

 Pei Ziteng: “…”

Xue Chengxiu, you are very good, you are using your son as a shield, and even using it to persuade others even though you are hiding something.

 Zhuang Ze chuckled lightly, ate the snacks slowly, and asked Xue Chengxiu: “Old Liu from Huijie told me that Xue Chengji wanted the piece of land in Guangyun?” 

Xue Chengxiu nodded. Xue Chengji’s ambition for Guangyun is inevitable, otherwise how could even stupid and clumsy tactics like beauty trap come about? In terms of oppressing people, the little one is like the old one.

 The young and old think that they are being secretive and considerate, but they don’t know that their actions are already known, and they are still jumping about.

 It’s time to beat them, so that they won’t waste any more of his time in endless struggle.

 However, if the person sent by them had seven or eight-tenth of the beauty of the child… he didn’t mind pampering him.

 Yu Siyang, who was doing physical training, shuddered suddenly.

 Rubbing his arm doubtfully, the weather is getting hotter and hotter, how could he feel cold?

 “Xiaoyu, you’re distracted!” Luo Peng, who temporarily served as the supervisory teacher, had a black face, and had rolled a newspaper into a teaching stick used to beat the careless student.

 Yu Siyang glanced at him silently; didn’t he just not make dinner for him? It’s been a few hours, and he is still holding grudges.

 He has his own difficulties too!

 The other party is his creditor for more than one billion, and it is considered very moral that he has not urged him to pay back the money. Asking him to cook a meal, can he say no?

 Besides, he used to eat instant noodles every day, so why can’t he eat them now?

 “Go on, don’t be distracted.” Luo Peng was acting selfless.

 Don’t children know that it is easy to go from frugality to luxury, but it is difficult to go from luxury to frugality? After eating top food for so many days, instant noodles are really hard to swallow.

 Thinking of the bowl of braised beef noodles at night, Luo Peng felt nauseous again.

 He must have had a bad brain before, thinking that instant noodles were delicious.

 The child not only didn’t express empathy, but also complained about him.

 Obviously my grievances are greater, okay!

 Luo Peng didn’t know that he still had to continue to live with instant noodles and takeaways.

 The next day, when Yu Siyang finished school, the driver of the Xue family, Lao Lin, parked the car at the gate of All Star Entertainment on time.

 Yu Siyang: “…”

Old Lin cheerfully helped him open the door.

 This child is very good, has good craftsmanship, and is also good to people. Yesterday, he made an extra portion for those who work in Xue family. It was delicious… He couldn’t think about it anymore, or his saliva will start to flow out.

“Is Mr. Yu a star?” Lao Lin asked Yu Siyang while driving.

 “You can call me Xiaoyu,” He had always been called “Xiaoyu” and never called “sir”. Yu Siyang was a little embarrassed, “I am a newcomer, not a star.”

 Old Lin smiled. “You will be a big star soon.”

 “I will accept your auspicious words.” Yu Siyang also smiled, he doesn’t care if he becomes a big star, he just wants to pay off his debts quickly. The feeling of being buried under a mountain of debts was not a good feeling at all.

 When Lao Lin brought Yu Siyang to Xue’s house, Xue Chengxiu had not yet returned, and there was only Mu Mu playing in his play room.

 When the nanny said that Flower Brother was here, Xue Yunmu immediately threw away the toys in his hand, ran downstairs like the wind, and threw himself into Flower Brother’s arms. He kissed him several times and called out: “Flower Brother, Flower Brother …” 

“Mu Mu, my name is not Flower, I am called Yu Siyang.” Yu Siyang typed out his name on his mobile phone to show the little guy, “Big Flower Brother” sounded very embarrassing, and it was also not a serious name[5].

 Xue Yunmu obediently shouted, “Brother Yangyang.” He couldn’t understand the other characters on the phone at all.

 “Good~” Yu Siyang kissed the chubby face.

 Xue Yunmu immediately covered Yu Siyang’s face with his saliva.

 Xue Chengxiu stood at the door, watching Yu Siyang wiping his face amusedly while hiding. Yu Siyang was still shouting: “It’s alright…” 

“Mu Mu, come here.”

 When the little guy saw his father had come back, he immediately abandoned Yu Siyang; ran over and hugged his father’s legs, and said gruffly: “Dad, Flower Brother is here.”

 “It’s Brother Yangyang.” Yu Siyang corrected.

 Xue Chengxiu gave him a smile.

 Yu Siyang hurriedly said hello: “Mr. Xue.”

 “Go cook, I’m hungry.”

 Xue Chengxiu sat down on the sofa holding his son; Yu Siyang’s teeth itched[6] with his arrogant appearance.

 But who made him owe him money.

 Yu Siyang walked to the kitchen obediently.

Time went by in Yu Siyang depressedly cooking dinner for the Xue father and his son, and Luo Peng sullenly simmered in instant noodles for a few dozen days, when “Poisonous Delicacy” finally started shooting.


The author has something to say:

 [Small Theater]

 Yang Yang: It feels a little uncomfortable to be pressed under a mountain. 

Xue Gong: Do you think I am a mountain?

 Yang Yang: I mean debt, debt.

Xue Gong: It’s me who you owe money.

 Yang Yang: … well, you are a mountain

Xue Gong: …

[1] They probably mean biological. Since it is from a surrogate, it is probably done by IVF.

[2] Indicating that they treated Xue Chengxiu as an elder brother.

[3] Because the first person that met Yu Siyang was Xue Mumu.

[4] Meaning he couldn’t suspect the teenager anymore.

[5] Basically he felt that it made him sound like a frivolous person.

[6] He is stopping himself from cursing him.

  1. That does not make sense. Wouldn’t they still be biologically related as long as the seed (sperm) used for surrogacy is Chengxiu’s?

    Maybe I’m missing something here.

  2. I think they are trying to say that he has also not had a child the natural way..that’s the best way i can interpret it..
