Translator – Xiao He Lian
Wen Chi asked Xiao Shuanzi to smooth the snowman’s face for him, picked up the branch and etched the facial features again.
Wen Chi didn’t know how long it took as he etched on the snowman seriously.
He didn’t notice when Xiao Shuanzi’s voice beside him faded away.
When he finally managed to draw out a pair of eyes, he put down the branch and stared blankly at the snowman’s eyes. Suddenly, a bitter feeling hit his heart and even the tip of his nose turned sore.
“Xiao Shuanzi.” Wen Chi sniffed pretending nothing happened, but couldn’t stop the trembling of his voice, “What do you think?”
However Xiao Shuanzi didn’t respond.
Wen Chi wanted to look back, but he was afraid that Xiao Shuanzi would still be there and see how vulnerable he looked.
He threw away the branch in his hand and stretched out his hand to pinch the snowman’s nose. His fingertips touched the cold snow, which was unbearable in this cold winter month.
It didn’t take long for his fingers to turn red from the cold and his fingertips were also a little painful.
In fact, these pains are all within the range that Wen Chi can bear, but for some reason, his vision was covered by a thin layer of watery mist and before he could force the layer back, he felt it turn into a boiling hot liquid that gushed out of his eyes.Advertisement
As if he was startled by the tears that suddenly flowed from his eyes, he hurriedly reached out to catch them as they slid down his cheeks and landed in his hands, breaking into petals of water.
He looked down at the watermarks, froze for a while, then tightened his palms, and raised his hands to wipe away the tears on his cheeks indiscriminately.
Suddenly, there was a sound of footsteps behind him. It was the creaking sound of the soles on the snow and the sound was particularly very close— as if someone who was already standing behind him was suddenly approaching him.
Only then did Wen Chi realize that Xiao Shuanzi hadn’t left but had been standing quietly behind him.
“Xiao Shuanzi, don’t come here.” Wen Chi panicked, “Can you step back first? I want to be alone.”
But the footsteps didn’t stop.
Wen Chi was embarrassed and slightly annoyed. He really didn’t want Xiao Shuanzi to see his tear-stained face, so he simply covered his face with his hands and continued to urge, “Didn’t you hear me? Get out!”
And when his words fell, the sound of footsteps also stopped behind him.Advertisement
Then a hand stretched out from behind, gently grasping Wen Chi’s hand that was blocking his face.
Wen Chi thought it was Xiao Shuanzi’s hand, and a sense of repulsion arose in his heart. He subconsciously wanted to shake off that hand, but instead it was held even tighter.
“Xiao Shuanzi!” Wen Chi turned his head angrily, “You…”
Before he could utter the rest of the words, they were firmly blocked by a cold lip.
Wen Chi was startled that he almost forgot who he was. His chest burst with anger, and he was about to attack the other person’s chest, when he suddenly caught a glimpse of his face.
Immediately afterwards, his whole body froze.
The kiss didn’t last for long, it was more of a spur of the moment kiss and it ended as soon as it started.
Wen Chi still couldn’t react until the person slowly opened the distance between the two of them.
The person pinched the tip of his red nose: “Why aren’t you saying anything?”
Wen Chi blinked: “Shi Ye?”Advertisement
Shi Ye said, “It’s me.”
Wen Chi stared blankly at Shi Ye’s flawless face, he couldn’t help but raise his hand to touch Shi Ye’s face, and opened his mouth, clearly wanting to say a lot of things, but not a single word could come out.
In the end, he just said, “You’ve lost so much weight, I almost couldn’t recognize you.”
At this moment, Shi Ye looked like a person who came back from the gate of hell after a serious illness. But Shi Ye still looked so good, as they say beauty lies in the bones but not in the skin, and his bones perfectly supported the skin.
Facing Wen Chi’s surprised gaze, Shi Ye appeared very calmly and he faintly hummed: “I’ve lost some weight, but it’s okay
After saying this, his fingertips touched Wen Chi’s eyes.
Wen Chi obviously looked like he had just cried. His eyes were as red as a rabbit, and he was sniffing every now and then, perhaps because he had cried so hard just now, his eyes were swollen and painful.
But strangely enough, after Shi Ye’s cold fingertips pressed against his eyelids for a while, it seemed to be less painful.
However, Shi Ye’s voice still deepened: “Were you crying?”
Wen Chi shook his head and nodded again. He looked up at Shi Ye, in fact his heart was piled with complaints, he wanted to ask Shi Ye why he had left him behind again, he also wanted to ask why Shi Ye wouldn’t let him go back to the palace, moreover he wanted to ask how Shi Ye had lost so much weight all of a sudden.
But at this instant, he didn’t bother to say anything. So many emotions and so many words all converged into one very aggrieved sentence, “I thought I would never see you again.”
Shi Ye paused for a moment, then pulled the corners of his mouth and smiled gently. His smile was beautiful, his cold phoenix eyes curved into a nice crescent shape. He stroked Wen Chi’s soft hair and whispered an apology, then added, “You’ve already seen me.”
Wen Chi murmured, “It doesn’t feel real.”
Shi Ye thought for a while, then he picked up Wen Chi’s hand, held it in front of Wen Chi’s face and said mischievously: “Take a bite from your hand, if it hurts, it’s real.”This is a translation hosted on KnoxT, copies found elsewhere are either stolen or plagiarized.

Wen Chi glanced at the back of his hand, and suddenly flipped his hand over so that the back of Shi Ye’s hand was on top, and opened her mouth to bite down hard.Advertisement
On the other side, Xiao Shuanzi was helping to clear the snow when he heard a familiar short scream and he was so frightened that his movements stopped.
Seeing this, Ruo Fang who was next to her also stopped: “What’s wrong?”
Xiao Shuanzi frowned: “I seem to have heard something.”
Ruo Fang asked, “What is it?”
Just as Xiao Shuanzi was about to speak, he felt Ruo Tao on the other side of Ruo Fang glancing at him coldly. Xiao Shuanzi suddenly realized something, swallowed back the words that came to his lips and shook his head like a rattle: “Nothing nothing.”
