Don’t Be a Kept Man
br>“Since I was small, I have always helped my parents with their chores.
I’ll mop, I’ll mop.”
Somehow Wen Chuo felt that Qian Zhi Guo was like a fly, except for “let me do it, let me do it” he didn’t know any other words.
Wen Chuo coldly looked on and when Liu Meng Meng served up his food and saw him like this, she sat across from him,
“Where do you get all this anger from everyday.
Have you eaten a cannon? Has it not caused you to explode yet?”
From this close, her cheeks were blushing from Wen Chuo’s seductive eyes.
Liu Meng Meng turned her head and looked at the average looking face of Qian Zhi Guo’s and she suddenly had an inexplicable feeling of disappointment.
Liu Meng Meng quietly asked Wen Chuo,
“What do you think……of him?”
Wen Chuo had always been staring at Bai Yang’s serious working mode.
His appearance from the side made him look so pure and clean, with his expression so focused and serious that Wen Chuo’s heart had somehow calmed down.
Without any attention to Liu Meng Meng, he said,
“Not bad, why.”
Seeing that Qian Zhi Guo had not paid any attention to them, Liu Meng Meng slightly tilted her body and whispered into Wen Chuo’s ears,
“I just feel that Qian Zhi Guo’s so dumb and dull.
Not even as smart as Bai Yang.
Hoh, my heart’s frustrated and annoyed.”
The two of them were quite close together, and their actions even more intimate.
Bai Yang stared at the both of them, and his movements suddenly paused before diligently wiping up all the water droplets on the table.
He turned around into the kitchen and without a doubt, Qian Zhi Guo followed along.
Liu Meng Meng was angered to the point that she didn’t even know what to say.
She covered her face as if to cry.
Not even handsome, emotional IQ was low.
She stomped her feet, angrily cursing him,
“An idiot from head to toe!”
Wen Chuo felt like he couldn’t stomach any of the food at all.
He remembered that he still had to livestream at 6pm, and he used his pair of chopsticks to knock on the table,
Pack up the leftovers too.”
Liu Meng Meng dropped her hands and glared at him,
You haven’t even taken one bite.
Do you even know how to live? Why are you so wasteful.”
There was nothing more that Wen Chuo loved to do than to quip,
“If I say it’s leftovers, then it’s leftovers.”
During the time that Liu Meng Meng was packing up the food, he flipped over the curtain doorway to sneakily take a look in the kitchen at the back.
But the chubby chef was standing right in the doorway, blocking his view, and he couldn’t see anything at all.
Wen Chuo could only take the boxes of leftovers home.
He didn’t have one lick of an appetite and he finally felt that he was indeed that bit wasteful.
For no reason at all, he didn’t even know what he was angry over, wasting his money for nothing.
His livestream went live at 6pm and Wen Chuo didn’t show his face, only streaming the game.
After about ten minutes of waiting, a whole bunch of people started to pour in, even more than Wen Chuo anticipated.
He flipped through the comment section and only then did he find something weird going on.
When someone’s famous, there’s bound to be drama.
As the pillar of DK’s gaming category, there were naturally many who were envious of and contested with Wan Ye.
Some haters used Wen Chuo to spread rumors everywhere.
They said that he was going to quickly pull Wan Ye down from her number one spot and started a small wave of fights.
So when Wan Ye’s fans heard that Wen Chuo was going to livestream, they came to “check” him out.
>> I’m only looking to see what kind of person one could be to be able to pull Wan-zi3 down from her rank.
Fighting oh~ Don’t let us be disappointed, young man!
>> Came here to see how great he could be.
If he can’t even pass through Death’s Valley, I’m going to motherfucking make him crawl for me!
>> Yo the one above me SB? Have you even passed the beginner levels? Death’s Valley is a new area.
Your Wan Ye is still stuck there.
If he can’t pass, he’ll have to crawl for you? What a brainless child.
Can Wan Ye manage her own fans huh? A group of crazed dogs randomly biting people.
There was a lot of passive aggressiveness in the comment section and Wen Chuo only roughly took a look before closing the screen off.
He put on his earphones and entered the game.
Death’s Valley was currently the hardest level to pass right now, as besides defending from other players, he’d also have to be careful of the zombies that would randomly pop up.
On top of all this, his vision was greatly dimmed which was not an advantage at all, and it was called the most impossible area.
Wen Chuo put on his glasses and focused on his monitor.
In the game, his character moved forward in the midst of the strange land of Death’s Valley.
Here it looked like a centuries old European castle, situated in a dark and covered forest with their branches grown all crooked.
Paired with an eerie BGM, girls who had the lowest level of courage would cry from the scene.
A green poisonous swamp was “gu-lu-gu-lu” bubbling and a bone was silently swaying up and down with it.
Wen Chuo knew that if he was not careful, he would immediately be swallowed up, just like how it was impossible to get rid of parasitic leeches once they were attached onto you.
It would mean losing at least half his health and so when he was controlling his character, he would purposefully avoid the bones.
He was clean and fast with his bullets and before the audience could even clearly see the enemies hiding in the thick forest, Wen Chuo had already one-shot killed them.
Unknowingly, anxiety began to build up in their hearts and their focus was unparalleled.
On the charts, Wen Chuo had a rare undefeated battle record.
On the road, he had killed countless monsters and when he finally broke through the thick forest into the old castle, his health bar had not even taken a hit by the wandering zombies.
Quite a few people in the comment section were saying, they bowed down to his greatness, and knew that his skill was incomparable to Wan Ye.
The castle door slowly began to open, and following the heavy creaking sound, attention was drawn to what was behind the door.
It was right at this time that a weird sound began emitting into their ears and following that, a round black shadow suddenly flashed right above the character’s head.
On the monitor, it suddenly zoomed in, scaring the audience
Wen Chuo however had already been prepared and he quickly dashed to the side.
Then he shot right in midair, and a corroded crow chewing on an eyebrow fell on the ground.
The comment section immediately blew up.
>> AH AH AH MOTHER FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT!! I’M FRIGHTENED TO DEATH MOMMY! How could this area be so scary.
A crow can even hurt the character, what a scam!!!
>> WOWWOW if it was me, I’d be dead already.
If K-Da had fought all the way here and died here, it’d have been so unfortunate.
Thankfully, he avoided it.
>> His reaction skill, is so top-notch.
It’s so refreshing to see him fight, so much so that I’m filled with so much jealousy.
There were also Wan Ye’s fans and they popped out to say a few meaningless words, but they didn’t exit out of the stream.
Following the passing of time, the number of people watching was increasing and increasing.
Wen Chuo took a look at the bottom right corner and found that it was almost time for Bai Yang to be off work.
He increased his speed to push forward into the castle and the screen was suddenly filled with zombies being shot and their blood splattering on the screen.
The audience were wide eyed as they saw this and they felt that this seemed to be easier than chopping vegetables.
Other people needed to spend an hour, and even with countless revivals, they may not even be able to go pass Death’s Valley.
But Wen Chuo only spent forty minutes to pass it in one go.
When the sweet voice of the NPC said “Congratulations on passing”, the comment section blew up again.
At the same time, the overall ranking charts refreshed and KKK was number 1, Wan Ye was number 2.
>> I feel like I just witnessed the birth of a god.
Quick subscribe subscribe wu wu wu, when you get famous, I’d be an old fan!
Wen Chuo took off his earphones and found that someone had started a chain of gifts.
Rockets, cruise ships all flew by his screen, filling it up with all the special effects.
He thought to himself that he should have earned back all the money he just spent at the restaurant.
It was just at this time that the front door creaked and Wen Chuo glanced over before retracting his eyes back.
He quickly put on his headphones, pretending to be staring at the monitor as, with the peripheral vision of his eyes, he watched Bai Yang walk in.
Wen Chuo waited for him to speak up, but he could have never thought that Bai Yang would go right around him and straight towards the bedroom.
Wen Chuo closed the livestream, rolled his chair over, blocking the bedroom door, acting more like Cheng Yaojin than Cheng Yaojin could be.4
Bai Yang paused in his footsteps and lifted his eyes up to look at him, ever still his silent self.
Wen Chuo didn’t let him go, and he didn’t move, silently standing there, just like being punished.
One minute later, Wen Chuo couldn’t handle it and unhappily released his hands.
Seeing him turn his head as if throwing a tantrum and not looking at him in anger, Bai Yang slightly squinted his eyes before walking over and lightly hugging him.
Bai Yang’s waist was overly skinny to the point of not being real.
Wen Chuo buried his face in his embrace and messily snuggled and mushed his face around,
“Who was that man today? Why is he so detestable? Always swirling around you.”
The displeasure in his voice was too evident, as if everything he owned was being eyed up.
“Qian Zhi Guo.”
Bai Yang was as his normal self, and he stared at the top of Wen Chuo’s head.
He lifted his hand to touch, a bit dazedly asking,
“You…… are eating vinegar?”
Wen Chuo fake spat, almost jumping up from his chair,
“I’m eating vinegar? This old man ate a lemon!”5
*1 Feng Yun: Another streaming platform where the name is made up of the words “wind” and “cloud” combined
*2 It’s called “scrubbing presents” in Chinese which is pretty interesting haha but in most streaming platforms, kind of like youtube and twitch where these “presents” or really, “donations” get a special notification.
It’s like a mini cartoon on your screen.
If you have seen livestreams on twitch (or perhaps also youtube), take the sub/follow notifications that some streamers have pop up that says so and so donated/subbed/followed and make it flashier and bigger (dependent on the size of the “gift”/money given).
Unlike on twitch where you can have your own notifications, it’s pretty standardized between the streams (dependent on the platform ofc) where you’d have different special effects like a cruise ship, fireworks, etc.
They kind of resemble slot machines with their very fancy graphics designed to capture your attention and when there’s like a bazillion of them, it can get pretty crazy fast.
These presents will actually show up a bit later in the chapter.
*3 This is a nickname of sorts for Wan Ye (which is not like in volume 2 where the “ye” means an older man but a part of her name).
The “Zi” is kind of “your family”/my little kid/affectionate kind of feeling.
*4 Cheng Yaojin is a famous general that helped establish/found the Tang Dynasty.
A common phrase using his name is to mean that something unexpected and sudden is happening, something that you can’t stop and one that’s not welcomed at all.
*5 For this whole exchange, eating vinegar is a euphemism for being jealous while eating a lemon can mean a few things: that the person doesn’t feel good, like suffocating from a wrong, or being rejected, being envious or also jealous, feeling extremely sour over whatever happened, etc.
