Chapter 56: A Few Things About Kaczki’s Family (9)
Translated by Kirio and Addis of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
“Let’s get to a nearby clinic first.” Cheng YuanMu supported himself off the ground and stood up. These kinds of injuries were considered quite common for him. If they went to the hospital, they would probably contact their guardians directly, and they didn’t want to take this matter to their parents.
The good thing was that they were all superficial wounds. Kaczki called a rental car and went to a small clinic nearby to treat their wounds. Cheng YuanMu and Qi Ling Chao had some bruises and minor wounds so they were taken care of quickly with a bit of tending to. Plus, they were Zerg with faster recovering ability. The doctor said they should recover within three days.
Yi Yi’s injuries were more serious. The doctor asked the nurse to tend to the bleeding wounds on his face more carefully and prescribed him with anti-inflammatory medicine. He also gave him an ice pack and asked him to rest in the lounge.
“You sprained your ankle, but it’s nothing too serious. Take a rest here for a while and call a cab after. It may take up to a week to heal, so be sure to rest a lot.” The doctor could see that they had a lot of say to each other, so he excused himself to let them use the ward before heading out back to the waiting room.
The facilities of the small clinic in the community were very basic, and the ward was also very small. Yi Yi sat sideways on a folding hospital bed, while the remaining three sat on plastic benches.
“Can you explain what’s going on here?” Kaczki was relieved to finally confirm that everyone was safe and sound.
Cheng YuanMu and Qi Ling Chao looked at each other and began to tell the story from the beginning of what happened this morning, how they were picked on by the group of punks, were told that Yi Yi was in their hands, and how they finally couldn’t stand the anger before they fought.
Yi Yi looked hesitant for a long time and also opened his mouth to tell Kaczki the whole story of how he was bullied because of his birth.
“When I was still in the middle school department.”
The town they lived in was a small place where they didn’t see each other, and unfortunately, moving up to high school didn’t stop the things that happened before, but rather made them worse.
“I didn’t know,” Kaczki said, looking very frustrated and lowering his head.
“No, I kept it to myself! They didn’t tell you, because I asked them not to. I was afraid that you would look down on me a little if you heard such a thing.”
“How can that be?!” Kaczki retorted loudly and called out to Cheng YuanMu, “Although I’ve always been against violence, but this time I really want to beat them up well.”
Yi Yi was tugged by his straightforwardness and finally dropped his worried look and smiled. However, because his face was so swollen, the smile was very small.
“Finally, things are all settled.” Cheng YuanMu sighed as if relieved.
He didn’t expect Kaczki to point at Qi Ling Chao with dissatisfaction, “Not yet.”
Qi Ling Chao ah’d then immediately showed an embarrassed and remorseful look, “Sorry, I said something heavy yesterday. I really didn’t think about what I said, so don’t take it personally. I went to the bakery this morning to buy your favorite food, but I broke it before I could give it to you. I’ll go buy it again later!”
“No,” Kaczki shook his head, “I wanted to apologize to you. I called you this morning and you didn’t listen, so I went to your house to look for you.”
“You went to my house?”
“Yes, your female father said you and YuanMu went out, I called YuanMu again, and he did not answer. I went to the arcade, then after a long search, did not find either of you. I did not have much hope so I called Yi Yi also, to ask whether he had seen you, but he also did not answer!”
Kaczki recalled the state of his heart at the time, “I really felt like I was chasing after ghosts!”
“Sorry,” all three of them felt a little guilty.
Qi Ling Chao thought before that wanted to apologize and immediately sobered up from the guilt, “Right, you said you wanted to apologize? You do not have to apologize ah! It’s all my stupidity!”
“I thought about it carefully at night, and it was indeed my fault. I didn’t think about your stress at all and always imposed what I expected on you.” Kaczki sighed, “The matter of Yi Yi is the same. I felt that I was having fun with you, so I assumed that you were not good at communicating and didn’t have any friends, probably because you were more introverted. I didn’t even think of asking you, and everyone was completely unaware that you were going through this.”
Kaczki twisted his fingers anxiously, “It feels like I’m just doing things for myself.”
He was so depressed that all three were heartbroken and nervous, and rushed around to show that he was not at fault.
Kaczki suddenly changed his tone and said with high emotion, “I was dead in the head before. To be frank, it doesn’t matter if you all fail the university exam. I can support you in the future!”
“Ah?” Qi Ling Chao’s face became a little hot. Su-supp-support them? That sounded like a marriage proposal!
“Mn! Yi Yi is too ah! Since you do not like to communicate with others, you can just stay at home! You do not have to worry about what to do after going to work. I will buy you a lifetime of books to read!”
“I, I…” Yi Yi’s face was really red.
“I will try to earn money.” Kaczki assured confidently.
After Kaczki said this, Cheng YuanMu, although very happy, still couldn’t help but say, “Then we will embarrass you.”
After all, there were quite a few families in Zerg society where a family of female Zerg and inferior females worked to support the male Master, and in turn there were really only a few that wanted a male Zerg to support them.
“I’m smarter.” Kaczki said without modesty. “Oh yes. Because I figured this out last night, so I got up in the morning and spoke directly to my female father and male father.”
“What?” Qi Ling Chao and Cheng YuanMu became confused.
“I said that after three evolutions I will get married to you guys. After that, if we go to another city, we will be able to live together legally. You will definitely go with me, right? This way they don’t have to worry about me going out of town alone with another Zerg. Ah, I’ve also mentioned to them about Yi Yi.”
“What? Me too?”
“Wait wait wait!” Qi Ling Chao said in shock, “You just told your female father and the others about it!?”
“We’re finished. You don’t know how bad our impressions are with them! They will only think that their own precious male son has finally been abducted by those two punk females and will definitely object, right?”
“They don’t seem too happy, but it’s okay. They have agreed after I persuaded them. And asked you guys to take the time to meet them. I wanted to find you guys immediately, but the result is that your phones were off!”
Cheng YuanMu instinctively felt a pang of guilt. “That. I want to ask, how did you persuade them?”
“I said we have slept together.”
Cheng YuanMu and Qi Ling Chao both fell into silence.
Half a day later, Cheng YuanMu raised his concern with true feelings, “Will they send a police ambush to arrest us for ‘forcing an underaged male Zerg to have sex’ as soon as we come to the door?”
“No way! At least they have known you for so many years, how could they have you arrested?” Kaczki added, “They just said they wanted to meet you and talk to you.”
Once again, Cheng YuanMu and Qi LingChao both fell into silence.
