Chapter 7: “Can you show me the way?”

Translated by Addis of Exiled Rebels Scanlations

Editor: Kiramekineko


Wednesdays for Dr. Han were usually filled with clinical procedures.

This Wednesday was no exception.

He had been standing in front of the operating table since 8:00 a.m. Although he could obviously repair the human spine directly with angelic power, the results were too frightening. And, in addition to “treating the patient,” he needed to record the procedure simultaneously so that the interns could observe it. Therefore, Han Tian did not use half of his angelic powers, but put on sterile equipment, and with the assistance of a nurse, used the instruments to peel back the muscles of the patient, and concentrated on driving the rods into the spine one by one.

Between the two surgeries, there was only a very short rest period. By the time they were all done, it was already 7:50 p.m.

Dr. Han, who had finished changing, was greeted by his assistant, Xiao Ke, who asked, “Dr. Han, I have prepared some porridge for you, do you want to eat it now?”

Han Tian replied casually, “No,” and hurriedly ran to his private office.

Xiao Ke wondered, “What’s wrong with Dr. Han? I’ve never seen him in a hurry before.”

After swiping into the office with his fingerprints, Han Tian rushed straight to his desk and grabbed his phone.

There was indeed a message on it.

Only, the sender was Sang Sang, and the time was half an hour ago.

“Dr. Han, Mr. Qiao Xi has already signed the agreement. Also, he seems to be waiting for you.”

Han Tian frowned, fetched his jacket, and rushed towards the cafe.

It took about 20 minutes to walk from his private clinic to Angel’s Feather.

Even though he knew the cafe closed at 8:00, and even though he didn’t think Qiao Xi would be standing there all this time, Han Tian involuntarily picked up his pace.

When he arrived at the intersection, Han Tian saw a figure with its head hanging under the dim streetlight from a distance.

Qiao Xi was slowly swaying under the lamp with his hands behind his back, stepping on his shadow every now and then.

“Qiao Xi?” he blurted out.

The youth raised his head swiftly. Under the orange light, Qiao Xi’s hair, which was already a bit fluffy, was a bit extra fluffy, and the whole person looked like a soft, soft animal waiting to be claimed.

Han Tian could see very clearly that the moment Qiao Xi looked up, the original anxiety and restlessness in his eyes all dispersed. In its place, there was unadulterated joy.

“Han Tian! You’re really here!” Qiao Xi seemed to be trying his best to conceal his happiness, but the joy in his tone of voice was too obvious.

“…Hmm.” Han Tian walked to his side and said softly, “You were…waiting for me?”

Qiao Xi tilted his head slightly and blinked. He originally wanted to say, yes, you said yesterday that you would definitely come today. However, being watched by Han Tian for an instant, he was inexplicably a little panicked, and inexplicably a little, not wanting to admit it. He bit his lip and gave a dry laugh. “No, I was just taking a walk, a walk. And I happened to pass by here.”

“Oh.” Han Tian nodded and said seriously, “I just got out of class and thought I promised you yesterday, so I rushed over here— I thought you must have gone home already. But it’s a good thing you’re walking.”

The words were said plainly, and Han Tian’s tone was natural.

Yet Qiao Xi’s heart was not natural at all. He blinked, his face flushed a little, and he stammered, “Mn, but it’s so late, so, can you still get overtime pay?”

Han Tian froze, with a little regret. “Yes, then I guess I won’t get it.”

When it comes to money, Qiao Xi had the courage. He crossed his arms to his waist and said with a straight face, “Yeah, so you have to come early next time! Otherwise, how can you earn tuition?”

“Mn, I’ll be earlier next time. If I can’t make it, I’ll definitely tell you in advance.” Han Tian replied with certainty.

Qiao Xi was satisfied. He waved his hand and said casually, “Okay. Then I’ll head home. You should go back to school too, right?”

Han Tian said, “Hmm,” but still stood in the same place, looking at Qiao Xi in the light.

Qiao Xi started to panic again.

What’s wrong? Why is he not moving? What should I say?

“By the way…” Han Tian slowly spoke up.

“Hm?” Being watched by Han Tian’s deep brown eyes, Qiao Xi’s heart actually felt nervous.

“Aren’t I still helping to deliver cakes from the cafe?” Han Tian said in a serious manner, “Occasionally, there are customers from the villa area who come to order cakes. But the route inside this neighborhood is a bit complicated; it’s easy to take a wrong turn.”

“Ohhh!” Qiao Xi suddenly realized. “Then, it just so happens that I’m bored walking by myself. Why don’t you walk back with me? I’ll show you the route.”

“Really? Would it be too much trouble for you?” Han Tian asked.

“No, it’s no trouble. Well, I was also… Ah ah, no no, let’s go.” Due to the excitement, Qiao Xi’s ears were even a little red.

Qiao Xi thought that this prey was really cute. He actually took the initiative to jump up and rub against his side! Then I should seize the opportunity to get to know him better!

Looking at Qiao Xi’s reddened ears and the expectation in his eyes, Han Tian smiled. “Mn, I’ll trouble you then.”

The villa area was very large, with green vegetation everywhere. In the southeast corner of the neighborhood, an artificial lake was created.

The villas were hidden behind hedges, with only hazy lights coming from the floor-to-ceiling windows, making the neighborhood even more secluded.

Qiao Xi took Han Tian with him, deliberately avoiding the main road and heading for the winding path.

Along the way, Qiao Xi took the opportunity to ask a lot of questions.

For example, what grade Han Tian was in, how long he had been working at the cafe, what other hobbies he usually had besides studying…

When they reached the lake, Han Tian looked at the moonlit lake and asked a rare question, “By the way, Qiao Xi, have you ever been to the other side of the lake?”

Qiao Xi looked at the lush forest along the shore and said, “The other side? No. There is a villa there and it seems that area requires a special access card? So I haven’t been there either.”

Han Tian gave a “hmm” and resumed his pattern of answering whatever Qiao Xi asked.

After the two of them had tripped through all the paths, Qiao Xi finally stood at the entrance of his villa.

“Well, I’m here.” Qiao Xi, who always felt that he did not have enough detailed information, had some regrets.

“Mn, I’ll watch you go in.” Han Tian stopped in his tracks.

Qiao Xi walked up the steps and turned back under the porch. “Go back, it’s late.”

“Okay,” Han Tian replied, but did not turn around to leave.

Qiao Xi pursed his lips. “Then tomorrow you…”

“I can’t go tomorrow. Not even the day after tomorrow.” Han Tian cut off Qiao Xi’s words, “Saturday, I will definitely go on Saturday.”

Qiao Xi was relieved. He waved his hand. “Mn, see you on Saturday then.”

After entering the door, he couldn’t even change his clothes, so he stomped up to the second floor, rushed into the study, and flipped out the [Guidebook]:

[Soul Capture Value: 9.]

Whew. Very good, the trapping plan is in order.

Qiao Xi was relieved. He went to take a bath and change clothes, and then carefully recorded the day’s activities.


The sky was clear and crisp.

Qiao Xi, an intern who had skipped two days, arrived at the cafe early.

Unexpectedly, Han Tian was already there.

Han Tian was still wearing a beige shirt with sleeves neatly rolled up to the elbow and a black wristwatch on his left wrist.

As soon as he saw Qiao Xi, he greeted him with a big smile and said, “Good morning.”

Qiao Xi, who hadn’t smelled this sweet fragrance for two days, couldn’t help but twitch his nose and take two deep breaths, even as his eyes were about to half-squint, despite the fact that he had already prepared his mind for it.

He tried to keep himself from losing his composure and chased away all the strange thoughts in his mind. While tying his apron on, he said, “Good morning. It’s Saturday, so the store should be crowded.”

“Today? We’re only open for two hours today.” Sang Sang poked her head out of the production area.

“Two hours?” Qiao Xi was a little surprised.

“That’s right.” Sang Sang explained, “Every Saturday morning before, there was a half-price dessert auction. The proceeds from the auction are donated to the White Star Orphanage in the suburbs. Ah, if customers want, the desserts they auctioned can also be given to the children.”

“Huh? But, I seem to have been here on Saturday before, and I didn’t find an auction,” Qiao Xi asked in confusion.

“When Han Tian was on vacation, because there was no one to… Uh, to help with the delivery to the suburbs, this event was suspended. Now that he’s back, he’s restarting the auction again,” Sang Sang said.

“Interesting.” Qiao Xi said excitedly, “So can I participate? Ah, I don’t mean as an employee, I mean, can I come to the dessert auction too?”

“Of course you can,” Sang Sang said with a smile.

However, even though it was a half-price auction, not many customers actually came. As for those who bought the desserts and then chose to donate them, there were even fewer.

At the end of the day, Qiao Xi simply waved his hand and bought all the remaining desserts.

“Thank you for your generosity!” Although Qiao Xi was a “trainee”, Sang Sang, who was also the auctioneer, gave him a small medal as a token of appreciation and asked politely, as he did with the other guests, “Do you want to take the desserts away with you or donate them to the orphanage? “

Qiao Xi looked at the rows and rows of desserts in the glass display case, and felt that every cake was waving at him, and every cherry was smiling at him.

Slowly, he said, “I want to… take…”

Just then, he caught a glimpse of Han Tian standing behind the counter, his head down, his hands writing something, perhaps counting the number of cakes.

Well, according to Sang Sang, Han Tian used to be in charge of the delivery? Then today, it should be him too?

Qiao Xi’s heart moved and she rejoined the conversation with difficulty. “I want to take them and then, give them all to the children.”

Sang Sang looked surprised. “Really? Thank you so much!”

At that moment, Han Tian looked up, smiling brightly. “Thank you Qiao Xi! Do you want to join me today?”

Qiao Xi, who once again felt that his plan had worked, was filled with joy. “Of course, I will join you.”

Fluffy soft animal waiting to be claimed… Hahaha, I love the author! Hmm the owner of the villa at the other side of the lake must be Han Tian!

The least demonic Demon I’ve read 😁
QX is cute and I think HT thinks so too, incredibly deep down. He never quite behaves as expected.
The most affluent villa must be HT’s, which really shouldn’t be a seraph’s choice… isn’t ‘evil’ meant to be gaudy/flashy, whilst good is simple and humble?
This story is fascinating.
Thanks for translating and editing.
