Huan Xiu transmigrated to the Zerg planet and decided to start his new life.
He happened to hear that a cub near the college being bullied. The reason is that his ‘female’ father of the cub was injured in the war and retreated to the rear line, was thrown out of his husband’s house and now his future was hopeless. For various reasons, the cub was brutally expelled from the school.
As a sensational gossip, Huan Xiu didn’t think that the other party was the man who helped him when he first came to the world – and he was recommended to be his ‘female’ concubine under the malicious arrangement of others.
Chapter 1: Becoming a Zerg
Translated by Addis of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
Author’s note: There may be some new aspects in this novel, which I will generally end up explaining.
The word “person” in the dialogue is replaced by “Zerg”. The character “human” may appear in the protagonist’s inner thoughts and narration because the protagonist was a human being, which can be regarded as his habitual thinking. (This substitution is really annoying. Don’t mind it too much…)
This novel is essentially a sugar stew with sex, and there will be no dramatic plot.
Huan Xiu was in pain because he was unable to breathe. There was darkness in front of him like he was drowning, and cold liquid flowed down his throat.
Is this what death feels like?
Huan Xiu was not surprised. Since the advent of the so-called ‘apocalypse’, people around him have been dying. Even though he was working in the technical department of the army because of his job, he was only able to survive for half a year.
More terrifying than mutated monsters and zombies were the attacks and fights between humans. He couldn’t figure out whether it was an ordinary bomb attack or a nuclear bomb that struck… There was no way he could have survived anyway.
“……!? Cough, cough, cough…” Huan Xiu opened his eyes suddenly, and instinctively turned over onto his back, bent over and coughed. Along with the feeling of vomiting, he coughed up a lot of water.
“Are you alright? Did you have an accident?”
Huan Xiu looked up after regaining his consciousness and saw the man in front of him carefully. He was in his twenties, with freshly cut, short hair. The other party’s hair was wet and plastered to his forehead, and he looked somewhat uneasy and worried. Because, like himself, he was drenched and on the land beside a river dam.
“What happened to me…”
“You were drowning. I saw you struggling…”
“Did you get me up here? Thank you… I’m sorry, I have a headache. I don’t remember clearly…” Huan Xiu wasn’t lying, he had a splitting headache, as a lot of random information was flowing into his brain, making him confused.
“It’s normal to have a brief loss of memory after being stimulated. Can you walk? I’ll take you to the hospital.”
Huan Xiu was very glad to meet such a kind person. Few people helped strangers these days. He nodded and stood up unsteadily. He noticed that he was not hurt, nor was he missing any arms or legs. It was not like a body that had been through an explosion.
After taking a close look at the man in front of him and the surrounding environment, Huan Xiu realized that something was wrong. This was not Earth as he knew it – as early as the beginning of the end of the world, the city’s buildings were basically destroyed or abandoned, but this place still looked very modern.
He didn’t dare to rashly ask questions and seem suspicious. Huan Xiu vaguely felt that there was another person’s memory in his mind. Although it was very unreasonable… this place didn’t seem to be the world he once lived in.
Arriving at the hospital in a mini spaceship-like vehicle, Huan Xiu quietly digested the memory of the body, while the man who had rescued him was taking him to the emergency room.
“Thank you so much.” Huan Xiu only had time to say this to the man, before he was taken to the doctor’s room for a comprehensive examination.
After a long body scan, Huan Xiu recovered from a shallow sleep. At the same time, the memory that did not belong to him also seemed to gradually finish merging.
“It doesn’t seem too bad.” The doctor looked a little irritated and discontentedly said, “He let a male Zerg drown. What was he thinking?”
Huan Xiu realized that the doctor’s ‘male Zerg’ was addressed to him. Obviously, the dissatisfaction was not actually towards him but the man who saved him. He explained, “The one who sent me was just passing by and helped me. We don’t know each other.”
“Oh. So that’s it,” the doctor nodded. “You need to rest for a while and you’ll be fine. We’ve already got your information and payment details. Would you like me to call you a car to take you home?”
Huan Xiu glanced at the wristwatch looking thing on his hand without moving. Before entering the ward, the other party confirmed he had this. His physical memory told him that it was something similar to a ‘resident ID’.
“Sorry to trouble you.”
“May I ask if you remember who pushed you into the river? This is a very serious crime,” the doctor asked solemnly. Although it was not his duty, he seemed to be very angry for Huan Xiu.
“It was my own foot that slipped.”
“This… Mn, please rest well.” The doctor was skeptical. How do you accidentally fall into a river? But if the harmed party said so, it was not easy for him to pursue the matter.
Of course, Huan Xiu couldn’t say who pushed him. Because he remembered – not only did no one push him, but he was depressed about his old love, so he committed suicide.
To be precise, it was the former owner of the body.
After leaving the room, Huan Xiu did not see the man who saved him and sent him to the hospital. He inquired about the man at the door, and a nurse told him that the other man had waited for a while, and then he seemed to have something to do and left in a hurry. Huan Xiu felt a little sorry that he didn’t have a chance to thank him properly and didn’t even ask the other person’s name. He could only hope to see him again in the future.
This hospital was very far from “home”, so Huan Xiu had enough time to carefully sort out the current situation on the way back. The original body’s memory clearly told him that this was not Earth, but the planet of the Zerg. He was a male Zerg, and the young lord of the Huan family; a little aristocrat with almost no reputation. He was currently working in the Mechanical Department of the Research Institute, while at the same time working as a teaching assistant at the Advanced College.
Huan Xiu felt a little surprised as he was staring at himself in the window, his face was exactly the same as his original one. He looked a little younger but other than that, there was nothing wrong with it. Just like a carbon copy. He checked the information stored on the bracelet and Huan Xiu confirmed that this body even had the same name.
“It’s spooky.” Huan Xiu muttered in his mind.
In another world, this carbon copy, this body almost the same as his, was living a completely different life from him. He entered the other’s body because they both died at exactly the same time?
Huan Xiu held out his hand and looked at it, and it was obvious that this was a well taken care of body. Living in such a comfortable and safe environment, it was really inconceivable that this version had died for the reason that ‘the person I like is going to marry someone else’. If Huan Xiu told those people on Earth this, who were struggling to survive, he didn’t know how they would feel.
What about the soul in this body? Could it be that he was blown up in my original world instead of me? Although the owner of the body wanted to die, Huan Xiu felt a little guilty when he thought about this.
But now that he had a chance to live again, Huan Xiu decided to make the most of it. He had a lot of things he wanted to figure out at the moment.
“So you decided to come back?”
As soon as Huan Xiu stepped into the house, he heard a particularly unpleasant voice.
The Huan family was a common aristocratic family with some years, but not much power and influence. But he was a very unpopular member of the family. After birth, his mother disappeared – on this planet, they were called the female father –, and his male father died early. Thus, this body was living while relying on someone else’s charity. The original owner of the body seemed to have been an eccentric and sullen person, so he suffered from the cold stares from his relatives.
“I thought you heard that the Ai family’s inferior female was going to marry Jiade as a concubine and ran out to be sad alone? I didn’t expect that you would come back without crying.”
“Maybe he reduced the swelling before he dared to come back?”
Several idle cousins got together again, and they didn’t know what to do, and Huan Xiu, who happened to return home, ran into them. Verbal bullying of this introverted cousin, who had no support, seemed to become a fixed pleasure for them.
Are all the so-called male Zerg in this world so boring? Or is it just the aristocratic ethos? Huan Xiu was shocked by the way this group of young people, who were at least twenty years old in human years, gathered together to speak in the same way as a small group of middle school students would.
“Why don’t you say something? Is your voice hoarse?”
“……Congratulations on your marriage?” Huan Xiu felt that he really had nothing to say. He couldn’t say that ‘the body was so sad that he jumped into the river just now, and now there is another soul in it’. He could only respond casually.
“…… Ah?” Huan Jiade, who had been staying in the middle and appeared to be the head of this little group of male Zergs, was a little unhappy. Usually, Huan Xiu’s reaction would be more interesting than this. “What’s with your attitude?”
“Oh, it’s nothing. I’ve got some work to do, so I’ll go back to my room first. Good night.” Huan Xiu felt that he couldn’t deal with this group of ‘middle school students’. He laughed awkwardly and quickly ran away. Since he was a distant family member with the same name, he lived in a side building. So after the meeting in the lobby, he went down the hall and went the other way.
The cousins, who never bothered to go there, were surprised to see the abnormal figure of Huan Xiu leaving quickly and looked at each other in dismay.
“He must have taken the wrong medicine today.”
“Ha, I guess he is too upset to face the facts.”
Although these male Zerg, who thought of themselves as a group of heroes, said this, they still felt quite frustrated inside. Because Huan Xiu didn’t show the same expression of resignation and anger as before. Although he didn’t contradict them, Huan Xiu looking very calm was the understatement of the day.
Of course, Huan Xiu was calm. This noble ‘inferior female’, who the body was originally infatuated with, was just a stranger to him. Although he had the memory, it was not enough for Huan Xiu to inherit the feelings of the former owner.
The Zerg did not have a men and women distinction but were distinguished by male, female, and inferior female instead. Huan Xiu was a little surprised.
Subverting the common sense of the people on Earth, the ‘female’ of the Zerg nationality seemed more like a typical male – generally tall and strong, responsible for physical labor, but were fertile and able to bear children. The ‘males’, including the body of Huan Xiu, were more like the typical ‘office men’ from his cognition – moderately built and generally did not have too many muscles. They were mostly engaged in mental work and research, and these ‘males’ were few in number. ‘Inferior females’ were more slender, but even so, were still within the scope of being a male.
“They are all males…” Huan Xiu couldn’t help saying to himself.
He was originally gay in his world. Although he thought it was funny, Huan Xiu had to admit that the world was really ‘kind’ to him.
The ‘Ai family’s inferior female’ that group of cousins mentioned, should be this one – Huan Xiu opened the portable wristband, called up the photo album, and easily flipped through a pile of photos.
This inferior female named Ai Le and the original owner of the body had known each other for a long time. The common means of association and marriage between nobles meant that they would often make children meet at an early age. Of course, Ai Le was not brought here to be introduced to Huan Xiu at that time; he, a neglected male of this Zerg family, was only brought along as a second thought, and that’s how the two Zerg met.
It was not just the original owner’s wishful thinking. In the past, Zerg seldom cared about him, but Ai Le was very gentle with him and took the initiative to contact him. However, when the original owner proposed further exchanges, Ai Le would take a step back, and the relationship would remain ambiguous. That was until a few days ago when the original got the news that Ai Le was going to marry his cousin to be a concubine. He thought about how he once said that he would marry Ai Le as his only female, but he didn’t get a reply. Now the other party wanted to marry the person who bullied him all the time, which made him feel very humiliated.
It was very sad, but Huan Xiu was unable to understand this. This caused him to commit suicide? Huan Xiu still felt it was unforgivable.
He may have felt that such a life was humiliating and miserable, but how many people couldn’t even dream of such a life?
Huan Xiu lay on the spacious bed, dazed. Ever since the End of the World, how long had it been since he had slept on such a soft mattress? The original had it quite good. The researchers’ dormitory at least had wooden beds. How many people didn’t even have beds on Earth?
Thinking of the past, Huan Xiu suddenly sat up from his bed and set out to search for information about Earth.
After a careful investigation until almost midnight, Huan Xiu finally came to a positive conclusion. This universe did have an Earth, and there was human life as well. This Earth had never experienced an apocalypse or a disaster like the other had, but has developed smoothly to the present day, bordering on the alien civilization – in short, this was not the Earth he knew, and he never existed there.
