Ch3 – Let’s take it slow
Translator: Abo Dammen
Outside the courtyard were the jubilant sparrows, sporadically singing as they jumped up and down in the trees.
Through the thin tablecloth, an inviting, warm yellow light filtered in.
Jiang Yunshu placed a piece of cabbage in his mouth and chewed it so quickly that it almost jetted out.
He ate a little bit of each dish separately before finishing with a slew of cups of water.
Great, there’s too much salt.
Jiang Yunshu’s thoughts were filled with hypertension, mouth sores, upper respiratory tract infection, and several other medical terms.
But because he wasn’t the one who put in all the effort, he wasn’t qualified to be picky.
Jiang Yunshu ate only a few bites before putting down his chopsticks.
Bai Tang noticed that he had finished eating, so he shoved the remaining rice into his mouth, stuffing it full.
“Take your time eating.
I’ll clean up the dishes first.” Jiang Yunshu stood up, wrapped more than half of the remaining dishes in plastic wrap, and placed them in the refrigerator to warm up the following day.
Unexpectedly, just as he was about halfway done, Bai Tang rushed in, holding his own small bowl, and said gingerly, “Sir, the dishes must be disposed of the same day…”
Jiang Yunshu’s moving hand ground to a standstill.
It took a while for him to respond, removing the plastic wrap and tossing it into the trash can.
“I’ll take care of the dishes.”
“N-no need!” Bai Tang was terrified, his dainty brows twitching and a flush spreading across his cheeks.
“I’ll do the dishes, sir…”
How could only one person be doing the cooking and washing dishes? But, seeing Bai Tang’s steadfastness, Jiang Yunshu could only withdraw first.
“Sir,” Bai Tang stood in front of him, his head bowed and his right hand clutching his left arm.
His long black hair clung to his cheek.
“I’ve already prepared the bath water for you. You can go ahead and take a bath…”
Jiang Yunshu’s head once again projected question marks.
He frowned as he ogled Bai Tang’s hair whorl and said, after a brief pause, “Thank you, but I’ll do it myself next time.”
The bathroom was lavishly decorated, right down to the king-sized bathtub.
On the surface of the water was a lingering cloud of steam and mist.

If you need to MTL please retype the gibberish parts.
Jiang Yunshu leaned his head back in a wet towel, his strong and slender arms resting on both sides of the bathtub.
He sighed contentedly.
This was most likely the happiest moment he had had in the previous few days.
Eight pack abs… Jiang Yunshu touched it and was pleased.
In his previous world, he had a good figure, but not as good as this one.

Jiang Yunshu blithely closed his eyes as he whisked the warm water.
According to the pamphlet, alphas represent strength and excel in all areas, whereas omegas are delicate and soft, with a frail physique.
He inadvertently thought of Bai Tang.
The difference in body size between alphas and omegas was only conceptually abstract, but he and Bai Tang were living proof.
When they stood together, the distinction was absurd.
Bai Tang was thin.
His shin was probably not as thick as his arm, and he was only tall enough to reach his collarbone… Before him was akin to a child who had yet to develop.
And just from the few hours they had spent together, he ascertained that the couple’s relationship was somewhat complicated.
Jiang Yunshu was unable to see through it and comprehend it.
He stood up and stepped out of the bathtub after the water had cooled, carrying some of it with him and wetting the marble floor.
Forget it, let’s take it slow, no rush.
After tidying up the bathroom and loading the dirty clothes into the washing machine, Jiang Yunshu happened to run into Bai Tang outside.
He saw Bai Tang had changed into a set of home clothes.
It was a simple white shirt that hung loosely on his thin frame.
The shirt fell off one of his shoulders, unable to support itself and exposing a large area of skin.
Bai Tang’s head hung low, revealing his pale nape.
The bones visibly protruded, travelling down vertebrae by vertebrae until they disappeared into his clothes, making his body appear scrawnier.
He said, inaudibly, “Sir… I’ll clean up the bathroom.”
It bulged alarmingly, conveying the impression of only bones under his thin skin.
Jiang Yunshu’s professional habits as a doctor wanted to help Bai Tang by examining and pressing to see if anything was wrong with his cervical spine, but, in the end, he simply turned away.
“It’s already tidied up.”
Bai Tang’s eyes widened marginally, evidently shocked, but he said nothing.
Jiang Yunshu probed casually, “Have you bathed?”
The villa had two bathrooms, but one was much smaller than the one Jiang Yunshu used.
Jiang Yunshu nodded.
He stopped walking and said, “Bai Tang, I’ll be sleeping on the sofa tonight.
I’m not used to sleeping with others.
Bai Tang was somewhat aghast, then lightly said, “Sir and I don’t sleep together.”
Hmm? Jiang Yunshu let out in bewilderment.
Just as he was about to ask for clarification, the two of them had already reached the bedroom door, and what he caught sight of was a single folding mat on the ground next to the only bed.
Jiang Yunshu, “…Don’t tell me you sleep here.”
He was really confused.
If he didn’t want to share the same bed, why didn’t he buy another bed? It’s not like there’s no space, and even if he did make his bed on the floor, shouldn’t the alpha be the one lying on the ground ah? Omegas have frail physique, what if he got sick?
Bai Tang didn’t say anything, just stood quietly beside him with his shoulders drooped.
Jiang Yunshu sighed silently, picked up a pillow and walked out.
“I’m not used to sharing a room with others.
You sleep on the bed.”
“…Sir!” Bai Tang grabbed the corner of Jiang Yunshu’s clothes as soon as he saw him walk out.
Despite the fact that Jiang Yunshu did not react, he was so terrified that he immediately released his grip and took a few steps back.
His face was as white as a sheet of paper.
He tremblingly finished the sentence, “I-I’m sorry, sir! I’ll go sleep outside, you sleep on the bed…”
Jiang Yunshu examined Bai Tang’s expression.
A sudden thought flashed through his mind, as if he had become aware of something, but it passed too quickly, like when he accidentally discovered the starting thread of a lump of tangled knitting wool, which then suddenly disappeared.
He did his best to recall that feeling, but he could no longer catch it.
Jiang Yunshu frowned and shook his head, “I’ll go, you should get some rest.”
Getting to the bottom of it, he was no longer the owner of this house.
Bai Tang is.
He didn’t see why he should let the owner sleep on the sofa.
But what Jiang Yunshu didn’t know was that Bai Tang still didn’t sleep in the bed.
While he was almost half asleep, a slippery, shuddering sensation, resembling a fish, touched his shin.
Jiang Yunshu felt goosebumps.
He blinked open his eyes.
His sleepiness instantly vanished when he saw the person who appeared.
The visible moon outside the window had an otherworldly translucency.
Bai Tang, with rosy lips and white teeth, was half-naked on top of him, like a beautiful male ghost who had come to demand for his life.
Jiang Yunshu was absolutely petrified that he scrambled off the sofa, sweeping Bai Tang aside.
Bai Tang, who had been knocked to the ground, appeared quite terrified.
He recoiled beside the sofa, motionlessly hugging his knees.
This scenario was far too unusual.
Jiang Yunshu momentarily looked distracted before tossing his blanket over Bai Tang.
Just as he was about to fly into a rage, it came to his mind that Bai Tang was now his omega, and if he wanted to ask for that… it was only normal.
He cleared his throat and pretended to be nonchalant as he said, “Sorry, I haven’t been in the mood recently.
Go back to your room and sleep, ba.”
Only then did Bai Tang hurriedly get up, whispered a “Thank you, sir.” and ran away naked.
Jiang Yunshu immediately averted his gaze from the glowingly piercing, pale skin.
He got out of bed early the next day.
Whatever size the sofa was, it was still just a sofa.
He was also nearly two meters tall now, so his head and feet were constricted.
He slept in such a hunched position that his back felt sore and his neck felt stiff.
Furthermore, he was harbouring something in his heart that he simply didn’t sleep at all.
All night long, his head was terribly messed up, and then just before he went to bed last night… What’s with all this ah… Jiang Yunshu sighed.
After standing up, he felt somewhat lightheaded.
He palmed his nape, twisted it a few times out of discomfort, and then stretched his sore waist.
After drinking a glass of water, he glanced at the door upstairs.
Before it even opened, he already walked quietly to the kitchen, and after searching for a long time, had finally found rice.
The upstairs door swung open softly.
Jiang Yunshu raised his eyes and saw a sleepy-eyed Bai Tang standing in front of the door, rubbing his face.
His hair was in utter disarray, and he yawned while stepping on his overly long pajamas with his shirt drooping to one side, revealing half of his shoulder.
He was in a peculiarly relaxed and confused state, until——
He saw Jiang Yunshu, who was staring at him.
He looked surprised to see Jiang Yunshu awake at this hour.
Bai Tang’s slightly drooping eyes widened, and in an instant, the softness and defenselessness in his body were completely erased, and a thick layer of protective membrane wrapped him once more, his disposition returning to the strained, overcautious, and cowering one.
Oohlala eight pack Anyways, our babies still have a long way to go~ Especially our baby tangtang~ When oh when will their relationship be better?
Btw, Bai Tang’s name literally translates to white sugar.
Just putting it out here for future references (I’ll be tl noting this anyway if one appeared idk why I even–wait, did I note this already? I don’t remember–)
