Chapter 1

The Nth time after failing a blind date, Xiang Han received an interview notice.


To be honest, he did not want to go because he didn’t even have a resume. It was certainly not normal for a company to take the initiative to offer him a position. This could not be any big company and there was also a high probability of fraud.


However, his dad suddenly made a video call, saying that he was currently aboard a flying ship and forgot the password to his bank account. The three thousand coins could not be transferred for a while, so he had to fend for himself for a few days.


At that time, he had just finished the genetic matching. He had already run out of money and was feeling extremely hungry. Hearing this bad news, he became dumbfounded.


After looking at the interview notice on his terminal, he made a difficult decision.


Outside the Space Game Technology Interview Office, Xiang Han sat with a nervous face. The two interviewers looked at the information he had handed over and closed it two seconds later.


Xiang Han’s heart skipped a beat. It looks like this time he had failed again.


Interviewer A: “Mr. Xiang, the person at the marriage agency said that you are honest and caring. Can I believe this?”


What? Were these just courtesy words? Moreover, what was the relationship of the marriage agency with this job interview? Was this not a gaming company?


Interviewer B: “Your successive blind date partners also said that you are a good person, very kind and helpful.”


Was this not a gentleman card? That’s not right, was this also investigated? Xiang Han was a little stunned


Interviewer A: “Congratulations, you have successfully been accepted by the company. Please sign the contract. We are looking forward to working with you.”


Interviewer B: “You can start work today. You will definitely be treated well here, there is meals included, lodging included and even a partner included.”


Wait, what just happened? What the hell is ‘partner included’?


With a face of confusion, he carefully asked: “Excuse me, my job scope is…?”


“Ah, it’s very simple, it’s actually space travelling[1].” Interviewer A and B responded at the same time, full of excitement.

[1] More like dimensional travelling since they’re going through different ‘games’


Xiang Han coughed, he suddenly had a feeling he had entered a pirate ship.


However, after visiting the company and having a full meal in the restaurant, he gradually dropped his guard and signed the contract.


This was a game company with a military background. It is said that a new game had just been developed recently and was in urgent need of beta test players. The main task of Xiang Han was to enter the game, allow the development of the plot and save the target.


As for why he should save the target, Xiang Han did not care. He only knows that after completing this task, he will be paid a 100 million RMB coins.


One hundred million coins, one can buy a villa in the Capital Star, plus a whole box of instant noodles. As for why there was such a great piece of pie falling out of the sky, Xiang Han who was blinded silly did not wonder.


Before entering the cylindrical container with a strange liquid, the interviewer, Mr. A, said: “The task of the first world is very simple, you basically do not have to do anything. There will be a system that will follow you and provide help. Roy and I will also pay attention to the situation inside and provide help at any time.”




“It’s me.” The interviewer little B raised his hand and introduced Big A: “He is called Dean Lambert.”


“Nice to meet you guys.” Xiang Han nodded, feeling that the name big A and little B was easier to pronounce.


After being completely immersed in the liquid, Xiang Han felt a sense of weightlessness as his vision darkened. He was a little nervous but fortunately, the system soon appeared.


[Nice to meet you Mr. Xiang, I am system 009 and I am very happy to serve you.]


Xiang Han nervously replied: “Oh oh, 009 is it? Can I call you little nine instead?”


System: [Of course you can, Mr. Xiang. ^_^]


Xiang Han’s nervousness suddenly lightened a lot and then a burst of light hit his eyes and everything became colorful once more.


Xiang Han only felt a wave of dizziness and his body seemed as if there were no strength in it. Everywhere was chaotic.


Before coming, he had already read through the story of the first world and understood that it was an alternate dimension. The time period was set in ancient earth where there were no such things as spacecraft or flying ships.


The original host, also known as Xiang Han, was a poor child born from a poor family. He struggled hard and relied on his hard work to get into a prestigious school. Later on, after a meeting on campus, he started to fall for a senior, a year older than him from the same school who went by the name of Lu Ze.


Lu Ze was born into a prestigious family. Since many generations ago, his ancestors had always been generals. When they reached his grandfather’s generation, they became businessmen. Not only were they rich and handsome, they were also smart and good at studies.


At his roommate’s birthday party, the original host had drunk too much and stumbled upon Lu Ze on the way back to school. At that time, his head was light was dizzy. Coupled with the ambiguous mood at night, the original host was drunk on wine and stammered out his confession.


Lu Ze was shocked at that time and then considered it for a few seconds before actually agreeing. To tell the truth, after the two people interacted for half a month, the original host still could not believe it was true.


If they were the protagonists, the story would end here. Unfortunately, the original host was merely a cannon fodder in this story and liked money. After Lu Ze got into a situation, he turned around and hooked up with another rich second generation. When Lu Ze’s business succeeded once again and became rich, the original host who worshipped money wanted to get back together. As for Lu Ze, he was also not the protagonist. He was merely a man who loved the protagonist.


After the original host and Lu Ze got together, they quickly encountered the world’s protagonist gong[2] Zhao Handong. Zhao Handong was Lu Ze’s childhood friend but never liked him. After knowing that they were together, he immediately revealed things to the Lu Family. Lu Ze was unwilling to break up, so he was driven out of the house and decided to start his own business.


However, under the temptation of Zhao Handong, the original host was already used to living a life of luxury and no longer wanted to squeeze together in the narrow rented room and live days where they had to constantly stretch their money. Although he had persisted for this love for some time, under Zhao Handong’s seduction, he finally chose to break up with Lu Ze and move into Zhao Handong’s arms.


However, how would the original host know that in fact, Zhao Handong did not like him at all. This was purely for the sake of disgusting Lu Ze and making him uncomfortable. Afterward, when Lu Ze fell in love with the main protagonist shou[3], Sun Shuya, the original host no longer had any value. Zhao Handong quickly shifted his target to Sun Shuya, breaking up with Xiang Han.


Sun Shuya was different from the original Xiang Han. He disliked Zhao Handong’s bored antics and the rich second generations’ way of using their power to bully the weak. He would treat him the same as everybody else. However, this only made Zhao Handong fall for him even more. The two broke up several times, and after a deep romance, they finally went on the path of a HE[4].

  [4]HE= Happy ending

The original host, because he wanted to get back together with Zhao Handong, plotted against Sun Shuya many times and was finally lured by Zhao Handong to commit suicide.


When Xiang Han looked at the data, his heart felt like f*cking a dog. In his opinion, this Zhao Handong was extremely stupid. He had probably hated Lu Ze from a small age until his brain became distorted. No matter what he does, he just wanted to go against Lu Ze.


But even if he wanted to suppress Lu Ze, couldn’t he at least do it with dignity? This person just can’t seem to, no matter what he would always first attack the people by his side, how was it fitting of a protagonist?


Xiang Han had just been transferred over at a wrong time. At this time, the original host had drunk until he was dizzy in the bar and was being kissed by Zhao Handong. Then just in time, he happened to be caught by Lu Ze. It must be said that this coincidence was just too good.


The original body probably drank too much. When Xiang Han came, he only felt dizzy and everything was extremely noisy.


Sensing someone walking toward him, he guessed it was Lu Ze. Although due to the backlighting, he was unable to see the other person’s face, the sense of oppression was real.


“This…what should I do now?” When Xiang Han stayed at home in Hanping, he rarely got any social interactions with people. Plus, he had just transferred over and felt a little lost.


System: [According to the original plot, you two should be breaking up now.]


Big A: [Repent, beg for forgiveness, start a business together and move towards happiness.]


Little B: [But this does not seem to fit with the original story? Mr. Xiang, you should go according to what you want.]


Xiang Han: “…”


He finally realized, at the critical moment, none of these three guys can be relied on. Even though his brain currently felt like bean paste, he finally made a decision. He would act according to the situation and first pretend to be okay.


When Zhao Handong saw Lu Ze coming over, he smiled awkwardly and said, “Oh, is this not Ah Ze? I haven’t seen you for a few days and you have already changed so much. I didn’t dare to rashly recognize you earlier on. How about we sit down and have a drink?”


“No.” Lu Ze faintly responded, his eyes were cold and did not look at Zhao Handong.


Xiang Han’s head felt dizzy. Against the light, he was trying to see Lu Ze’s appearance, but no matter how he was unable to see clearly.


However, in Lu Ze’s eyes, his eyes were narrowed and provocative as if looking at him in disdain.


Xiang Han was very good looking. He had enchanting eyebrows which Lu Ze had always known. When the other party confessed, he had agreed without hesitation even though they had not known each other before. But at that time, under the bright light, he actually felt that the other party was more attractive than usual and seemed to look even better.


He had obviously been caught cheating but was still nonchalant as if he did not care at all. Did Xiang Han think he would really forgive him?


Lu Ze’s eyes sank as a storm brewed in his eyes. “So this is your choice?”


“Hmm?” Xiang Han did not hear properly and instinctively raised his head. It was just that his voice sounded lazy and in the ears of others, it became a provocative tone.


In particular, Zhao Handong who listened in delight. Raising his eyebrows, he used a provocative tone: “Ah Ze, this kind of thing whether he wants to be with you or not must be carefully discussed. Xiao Han [5] has already decided to break up with you, it’s not good to keep pestering him, is it?”


Lu Ze looked at him coldly then looked back at Xiang Han. His eyes flashed as he resolutely said, “Well then, as you wish.”


After he finished, he turned away and left the crowd watching the show.


Hearing this, Xiang Han was very surprised, “I haven’t even done anything yet and we’re already over?”




“It seems like Big A was right. The power of the plot is really great. I can actually complete the task without doing anything.”


Big A: “Who is Big A?”


Xiang Han: “It is… Mr. Dean…”


Big A: “… It seems that there is nothing important to do for the time being. You continue. We are going to have our meal.”


Xiang Han: “Wait a minute, I also haven’t eaten yet.”


[Mr. Xiang, your body is still in the liquid.] The system kindly reminded him and then said: [Of course, you can also use this body to eat now. There are many delicious foods in the ancient Earth.]


“Really?” Xiang Han was pleasantly surprised


When Zhao Handong saw Lu Ze leave, Xiang Han was still lost. Feeling extremely dissatisfied, he pulled Xiang Han closer and said, “Babe, let’s continue this somewhere, eh?”


Eh what? He was still thinking about what to eat. Xiang Han frowned, feeling irritated.


[2] gong: Top/Seme

[3] Shou: Bottom/Uke

[5]Xiao is used as a term of endearment

  1. Woohoo, New story already! Thank you so much! So Xiang Han has to save Lu Ze? Does XH not care that he is working in a bl world? Also, is the ML going to turn out to be another person in a different pod – making it a matchmaking service?


  2. Nooooo~! The chapter finished too quickly! 😭😭😭😭😭😭

    I want to read more….

    Thank you very much for the chapter~!!!


    1. Well if MC is a foodie, he’ll probably trip up the richness into buying street food, normal cafeteria food that needs a reusable container to save money instead of rich restaurant food.

      Liked by 3 people

  3. Thank you for the chapter! This seems really interesting. It seems like our poor MC will have to go through a lot of misunderstandings. Waiting, waiting for new chapters! Thanks again ❤


  4. LOL! A job where ‘partner include’ 😂
    Love the MC so much, too innocent to the point easily being lured by a meal 😂
    Thank you so much for translating this novel. Waiting patiently for the new chapter 😁


  5. Afterward, when Lu Ze fell {to? in love with??} the main protagonist shou[3] Sun Shuya, the original host no longer had any value. Zhao Handong quickly shifted his target to Sun Shuya, breaking up with Xiang Han.

    I think there’s something missing there?
