as crowded inside the van.
  The problem with Sui HouYu was that he generally didn’t take notice of the opposite sex.
If there were girls around him, he would simply ignore them.
That’s why he didn’t notice.

  After he got out of the van, other people also left.
  One by one they all walked away until only Sui HouYu and Hou Mo were left. 

  Hou Mo walked behind Sui HouYu and raised an eyebrow when he noticed the other seemed to be walking with the wind.
  His gaze was fixed on Sui HouYu’s hair.
They were curled in an interesting way – tilted towards the tip of his ears, showing his white skin.
  It was not until Sui HouYu turned at a corner that Hou Mo chased after him.
He stretched out his hand to pull the other back and said, “Wrong way, it’s this building.”
  Saying that, he pointed.

  After Sui HouYu took a look, he reached out and swatted Hou Mo’s hand, “Oh, thanks.”
  Hou Mo shook his hand and complained, “You really don’t have any faith.”
  Then he turned and walked towards the other side.

 

  Sui Hou Yu couldn’t help but ask, “Isn’t that over there?”
  ”I’ll go grocery shopping.”

  At 10:30 on Saturday morning, the doorbell rang at Sui HouYu’s house.
  Sui HouYu knew the cleaning service had arrived.
He ignored it and continued to read inside his bedroom.

  All the cleaners had the password to each apartment.
After waiting for a while, the cleaner opened the door and came in with a bamboo basket in hand, which was filled with sheets, towels and other items.
  When he came in, he put on his shoe cover and spoke to the room.
“Hello! The towels have been changed for you.
The new ones have just been washed and sterilized at high temperatures, so you can use them with confidence.”
  Hou Mo took the towel replacements and went inside the bathroom to change the toiletries.
He threw out all the used ones and changed it with the ones he brought.
  Then he went to the sink to check if he needed to refill the hand soap or not. 

  It was known that this resident didn’t stay often and it was obvious from the overall usage. 
  The bathroom would have been used only a few times, so the toilet paper didn’t need to be replaced.
He could only help clean the bathroom floor.
  In the middle of his cleaning, he saw a pair of slippers approaching him – stopping at the door as the owner seemed to be looking at him.
  He raised his head to explain, “I’ll clean up this weekend…”
  The pair of slippers belonged to Sui HouYu.

  Sui HouYu was chewing bubble gum; he blew a bubble and popped it. 
  He looked domineering, and seemed like he thought Huo Mo’s presence here was very interesting; his eyes had lit up with mischief.  

  Hou Mo hesitated for a moment, then continued to clean up, and explained to Sui HouYu, “My mother is not in good health, I help with her work on weekends.”
  In fact, there were many apartments in this building that the owners put up for rent due to the developing tourism in the area.
  The main reason was that many of the residents here were relocated.
There were a lot of apartments and they got rented out when empty.
Later, they heard that with some decoration, it could pass as a B&B, and the income was thrice that of a regular room, so a lot of people began doing that.
  However, those B&B’s would all be cleaned by the apartment’s owner – like the three rooms Mother Huo cleaned.
Mother Huo was hired because the land owner was too lazy and only liked to play mahjong all day.

  In fact, Hou Mo already had a feeling when he saw Sui HouYu in this building.
  He didn’t expect such a coincidence. 

  ”Oh–” Sui HouYu replied in an elongated tone.
  Hou Mo put aside his embarrassment and chatted with Sui HouYu, “Would you be staying here for a long time?”
  ”Well, it’s been booked for half a year.”
  ”So, is there any problem in the bathroom?”
  ”The shower doesn’t work well.”
  ”Okay, let me have a look.” Hou Mo rolled up his sleeves to check .

  The shower head was one piece that couldn’t be removed.
  Hou Mo opened it and took a look.
Then with the help of a toothpick, he dug through each little hole, then turned on the shower after he was done.
  Hou Mo took ten minutes to clean the shower, and Sui HouYu stood by watching him patiently the entire time – though he did step out for a moment to throw away his gum.

  After Hou Mo tidyed up, he turned on the shower and asked Sui HouYu, “Is this all right?”
  “Yes,” Sui HouYu nodded, then pointed on the ground and said, “Clean that rust too, I have obsessive-compulsive disorder and it’s making me uncomfortable.” 
  Hou Mo silently observed the rust.
It was on a floor drain that remained under water round the year and was rusty as it was not cleaned regularly.
  After looking at it, he squatted down and tried to clean it up.

  This time he understood that Sui HouYu was deliberately making things difficult for him. 

  After that, Hou Mo was almost finished.
While changing and tidying up the towels and sheets, Sui HouYu came and said, “The top of the curtain rod is rusted, go and scrape it.”
  Hou Mo hesitated for a moment, threw the last pillowcase into the bamboo basket, turned around and said to Sui HouYu, “Sui HouYu, don’t go too far!”
  ”Now what did I do?”

  Hou Mo stared at Sui HouYu and muttered under his breath, “You obviously provoked me first.
You hit me with a water gun, so of course I’ll chase you.
I didn’t underestimate you, so why are you so sensitive? People say I’m gay, because I often tell girls I like boys just to reject them, so they won’t be too uncomfortable.
I’m straight; don’t think I’ll be interested in you because you look like a girl.”
  Sui HouYu’s expression got distorted and uglier.
  He really didn’t know that other people thought Hou Mo was gay.
Hou Mo revealed that on his own.
  Sui Hou Yu didn’t like being told that he looked like a girl.

  Hou Mo continued, “I just don’t want to cause trouble, don’t think I’ll get accustomed to you.”
  Sui HouYu raised his chin and said, “Am I accustomed to you?”
  Hou Mo pulled off the rubber gloves from his hand and said, “Aren’t you provoking me so that you can fight me? And the reason you haven’t given up yet is because you haven’t achieved your goal? Okay, if I don’t fight you, you would really think I am afraid of you! ”  

  Yes, without a fight, Sui HouYu’s heart wouldn’t be able to get over this.
  He has to find a reason.
Who knows for how long Hou Mo can tolerate. 

 

 

 

Nell’s Corner:

I’m aware that there might be some of you who don’t like reading my comments, and I admit some of them were personal, but after much deliberation I decided that I would still continue to put them up because honestly I enjoy doing so – Although this time I’ll lessen the amount and refrain from making any personal comments. 

I’d like to apologize to those who would be affected by this but at the end of the day, I am translating this story as a sort of escapism from real life.
And I would honestly like for it to remain that way.
Anyways, it would be easy to discern my comments from the translation notes because my comments are only under single inconsequential words, while translation notes usually are under sentences and phrases and if they aren’t, they are under Chinese words.
Translation notes would also have an asterisk* moving forward to make it easier to identify if you should open a pop-up note or not.

I have deleted some of the uncomfortable comments I’ve made and rest assured none like that would surface again.
I hope you don’t stop reading this story on account of my comments.

For those of you who don’t care or actually enjoy them, thanks so much for the support and please look forward as we are slowly inching closer towards the summary plot (The pure sleeping together part.
And then some.)
