Chapter 85: Out of Control Photobook (4)
Despite clearly not seeing anything in front of him, Cheng Zhi Chu could feel something warm and soft on his lips. He was kissed gently and even had his jaw pinched to force him to open his mouth to allow for a deeper kiss.
Cheng Zhi Chu’s back suddenly stiffened. His fingers gripped tightly onto the armrest and a slight blush formed on his cheeks. His eyes swept around the room subconsciously.
Winter Branch had used some unknown means that not only made him unable to see him, even Bai Yi and the others didn’t immediately notice his presence. They only felt that something didn’t seem right. Bai Yi frowned slightly and grabbed onto Cheng Zhi Chu’s hand. Half kneeling, he asked: “Zhi Chu?”
Having the person that you like looking at you while you’re kissing another person, Cheng Zhi Chu instantly started to sweat. He felt extremely ashamed ——- Even though technically “Winter Branch” and Bai Yi are the same person, it’s still……….
He can’t let “Winter Branch” this bastard continue like this!
He covered his mouth and quickly took a few steps back. Finally getting rid of the sensation of being kissed, he wiped his lips and angrily spoke to the empty space in front of him.
“Before I completely hate you, come out.”
Bai Xi Xing brought over a mirror and placed it on the coffee table. He then got up and moved away. Despite the fact that there was clearly no one standing in front of it, reflected in the mirror was a human image. His facial features were identical to Bai Yi’s.
“Winter Branch” smiled in the mirror as he waved at them but a second later it was shattered by Su Ling with a sharp knife. Numerous cracks also appeared on that handsome face of his.
“Your smile is disgusting.”
Su Ling said this coldly. Just when the knife in his hand was about to disappear, “Winter Branch”’s appearance appeared on the silvery-white blade.
He hooked his lips up at Su Ling. The next moment, as if the knife no longer listened to Su Ling’s commands, it few past his face and plunged into the wall behind him.
A small cut appeared on Su Ling’s face and a faint, mist-like vapour emitted from it.
“I advise you to be more polite to me.”
The man’s appearance once again appeared on a glass vase. It seems that anything that was reflective could reveal his appearance. He smiled slightly but his eyes were very cold: “Otherwise…..”
The wound on Su Ling’s face healed instantly. He clenched his hands tightly and his eyes showed strong hatred.
However, when he saw Cheng Zhi Chu’s worried gaze, Su Ling paused for a moment before quickly hiding away the dark expression. He walked over to Cheng Zhi Chu, lowered his eyes and spoke in a low voice while awkwardly tugging at Cheng Zhi Chu’s clothes.
“………He’s bullying me.”
The teenager’s temperament was always rather cold and he had never shown his weak side to anyone. And so, when he did such coquettish actions to Cheng Zhi Chu, his tone and movements were awkward. It was clearly something that he wasn’t used to doing.
But despite feeling embarrassed, the teenager did this because he noticed that Cheng Zhi Chu is rather soft hearted……..
As long as he can make Zhi Chu like him, he would be willing to do anything ——- If even Bai Yi that shameless person can get his love, why can’t he?
Sure enough, it wasn’t outside of his expectations. Cheng Zhi Chu revealed a distressed look and gently rubbed his head.
Su Ling lowered his head and used this opportunity to throw himself into Cheng Zhi Chu’s arms. He held him tightly and, at the same time, he looked up at the other men around them. Their eyes instantly darkened, and they hooked up their lips at him while looking at him with a cold expression.
Cheng Zhi Chu patted Su Ling’s back. Although he knew that Su Ling had killed people before, inside he still thought of Su Ling as a lonely and stubborn teenager that would only reveal his gentle and soft side to the people that he liked.
The more distressed he felt for Su Ling, the colder he was towards “Winter Branch”. Storing away the originally soft and gentle expression, he said coldly: “You’re really hateful like this.”
The man reflected in the glass vase fell silent for a moment. The image faded away and didn’t return for a long time.
Bai Yi looked over at Cheng Zhi Chu who was comforting Su Ling. He was no longer able to keep himself calm. From inside, the sour taste of vinegar surged.
The person Zhi Chu likes is clearly him. He is Zhi Chu’s true boyfriend and should be the one who he is acting all lovey dovey with but these soul fragments had taken away most of Zhi Chu’s attention leaving him alone on the sidelines.

He really wanted to kill all the soul fragments but Zhi Chu said that if he did that, he would hate him. Even if he understood that Zhi Chu was doing this for his own good he couldn’t help but get angry…….get angry at himself. Why did he have to let his soul shatter? If his soul didn’t shatter, he wouldn’t have to watch Zhi Chu comfort his other self………..
The more Bai Yi thought about it, the more he felt that he also had a good reason for Cheng Zhi Chu to comfort him. Seeing Cheng Zhi Chu comfort Su Ling and also comfort that nameless fragment whose body was covered in tape, the originally dark expression on his face surprisingly faded away. Instead, his eyes darkened.
———-Late at night, he can ask Zhi Chu to “comfort him” another way. This time he wouldn’t give him the opportunity to reject him
Cheng Zhi Chu walked over to the kitchen. Seeing the ghost that continued to hide from him, he couldn’t help but feel bad.
After going through everything that had happened, he had already guessed what had happened to the ghost. The ghost was indeed Bai Yi but, after the creation of the reality instance, the ghost took the appearance of Zhou Luo Cheng. Because of this, he refused to reveal his true appearance and tried to hide from him.
“It’s okay. I don’t care what you look like.”
Cheng Zhi Chu went into the kitchen and slowly approached the ghost. The ghost had no escape route and could only huddle on the ground. He tried to hide in a cupboard, but Cheng Zhi Chu managed to grab onto his wrist before he could.
“I know how you look. It’s really okay. I know you are Bai Yi…….”
Cheng Zhi Chu leaned down. He persuaded the ghost with the gentlest tone that he could manage and gently lifted his hand. His hand cautiously touched the edge of the tape: “Is it okay if I help you take it off?”
The ghost’s eyes were very pitiful. His hand softly rested on the back of Cheng Zhi Chu’s hand as he seemingly wanted to stop him. Cheng Zhi Chu felt distressed inside and proceeded to take the initiative to kiss the ghost’s forehead.
The ghost’s eyes widened. He seemed to be in disbelief that Cheng Zhi Chu would take the initiative to kiss him. For a moment he forgot about what he was doing. Cheng Zhi Chu no longer hesitated and began to gently peel off the take on his face.
The tape had aged significantly over time and was easily removed to reveal the pale skin hidden underneath.
Piece by piece, the black tape fell off onto the ground revealing the ghosts clean and handsome features that carried a hint of melancholy. It really was Zhou Luo Chen’s appearance.
But unlike Zhou Luo Chen’s dark and bloodthirsty eyes, the ghost’s eyes were very pure. Their temperaments were completely different. Even if they had the same face, you could clearly tell that they were two different people.
“It’s good like this.” Cheng Zhi Chu revealed a warm smile. He called out his original name, “Bai Yi.”
The ghost touched his face. His voice trembled and cold tears flowed silently down his face. After a while, he spoke with a hoarse voice:
“Thank you……….Zhi Chu.”
Cheng Zhi Chu touched his face and then hugged the poor ghost. Just as he wanted to say a few more comforting words, he suddenly heard a light cough behind him. He looked back and saw Bai Xi Xing.
Bai Xi Xing smiled at him. At the same time, his eyes glanced behind him. He saw his cousin and the other soul fragments watching the situation in the kitchen but for some reason they didn’t come over to the kitchen.
They must be worried about seeing Junior Cheng being intimate with a nameless ghost that has the same appearance as Zhou Luo Chen and losing control of themselves consequently making Junior Cheng hate them…….
Bai Xi Xing silently thought this. In fact, he was urged by his cousin to come over and check on the situation, but he also had something to say.
“Your phone is fixed. They have sent it over.” Bai Xi Xing smiled and gave Cheng Zhi Chu his phone.
Cheng Zhi Chu’s eyes brightened. He patted the ghost’s hair and stood up to receive the phone. He said with a smile: “Thank you senior. Thanks for your trouble!”
“It’s nothing.” Bai Xi Xing smiled. “Turn on your phone and see if everything is okay.”
Cheng Zhi Chu nodded. He turned on his phone and confirmed that it had indeed been repaired. It was even working faster and smoother than before.
When he just started up the phone, the phone continuously vibrated. Messages one after another was sent over.
For a moment he thought that the were messages from “Winter Branch”. Just when he was about to get angry, he realised that these messages were from his family and friends. They were all comments about the variety show broadcasted last night.
These messages almost broke his phone down. Cheng Zhi Chu saw all the messages appearing and felt a little dizzy. He wasn’t able to reply to every single one of it when his phone suddenly changed screens. His mother was calling him.
“Mum, what’s wrong? Do you need something?”
Cheng Zhi Chu was stunned. He immediately picked up the phone and asked with concern. His family didn’t normally call him during the day and usually did that at night. For her to call him at this time, it must be because she had something that she wanted to say.
“Zhi Chu, if you have time tonight come home.”
There was a hint of a smile in his mothers voice: “Your friend came over to visit. Why don’t you hurry back and entertain him?”
“My friend?” Cheng Zhi Chu was surprised. “Who came?”
“He’s called Qin Ji. He said that you met by accident and managed to become friends after chatting with you for a while.”
His mum laughed and said: “Qin Ji is such a good child. He’s also very handsome and polite. You should’ve brought him over to play sooner……….Hello? Zhi Chu, are you listening to mum?”
Cheng Zhi Chu felt as if all the blood in his body had frozen. His hand stiffened and the phone fell onto the ground. Hearing the noise that continued to be transmitted through the phone, he hurriedly picked the phone back up. His face was deathly pale.
How did Qin Ji find his home?! What does he want to do?!
Cheng Zhi Chu still remembered the corpses that he saw in the slaughterhouse when he was in the Beginner’s Instance. He knew that Qin Ji is a crazy psychopath who liked to target random victims. He is a madman. If he is interested, no matter who that person is, he will kill them!
“Long time no see Zhi Chu. I’ve missed you.”
At this moment, the voice on the other end of the phone was replaced by a magnetic low male voice. It sounded strange but, in a situation like this, only Qin Ji would be the one on the other end.
“So I took the liberty to visit your place and greet aunty. Aunty is very young and beautiful. It’s no wonder you’re so good looking.” Qin Ji gently laughed, “Aunty said that you’re still at school. Will you come back to see me tonight?”
“What the hell do you want to do?!” Cheng Zhi Chu’s eyes instantly reddened. His chest heaved violently, and his emotions were out of control, “If you want something, just come and find me. Don’t you dare do anything to my family!”

“I’m really sad to hear you say this. How can I do bad things to your family?”
Qin Ji smiled on the other end of the phone: “I think you may have misunderstood me………Let’s talk about it later when we meet.” At this point, he deliberately lowered his voice and spoke in a both adoring and charming tone, “I’ll wait for you darling.”
“Qin Ji? Qin Ji!”
Dial tone came from the other end of the phone. Qin Ji had already hung up. Cheng Zhi Chu anxiously called back but no one picked up. He then tried to call his father and sister Cheng Ling Ling but his father didn’t pick up and Ling Ling was in class, so her phone was turned off.
Cheng Zhi Chu was extremely anxious. Bai Yi who stood outside heard the commotion. He walked in, hugged him and spoke comfortingly: “Don’t worry Zhi Chu. You can rest assured. He doesn’t dare do anything to your family.”
“I must go back…….”
Cheng Zhi Chu’s face was pale. His voice was choked up. Bai Xi Xing saw this and said: “I can send you back. It’s just……” He glanced at the several ghosts in the house, “What should we do about them?”
“I can go with Zhi Chu.”
The groom said this. He had the ability to conceal his presence from living humans and had used it before. He could use this to go with Cheng Zhi Chu.
He glanced at the other soul fragments and hooked up his lips to reveal a cold sneer.
However, he didn’t intend to use this power for the others. He naturally wouldn’t let his rivals also follow Zhi Chu. Even if Zhi Chu begged him, he………..
“Can I borrow your ability? Cheng Zhi Chu looked at him eagerly while tugging at the groom’s clothes. He quietly pleaded, “I can’t leave them behind……..”
He was very worried about the situation at home, but he also couldn’t leave Bai Yi here. He couldn’t let Bai Yi encounter any danger.
Being looked at with those eyes of his, the firm resolution that the groom had previously crumbled in an instant. He couldn’t reject him and could only utter a tone of affirmation.
But at this moment Cheng Zhi Chu suddenly heard the system’s voice.
【I’m back. So exhausted. The photobook is now getting fixed. It should be done in about half a day!】
[He still has to wait that long?] Cheng Zhi Chu subconsciously asked. He still felt that it was too long.
【It’s already very fast. S-class items are very complicated. They probably have many technicians working on it at the moment for them to be able to fix it in that amount of time.】
The system muttered dissatisfiedly. Its tone then turned serious and it continued: 【There’s also one more thing that I need to remind you about.】
Cheng Zhi Chu responded to it as he changed his clothes. He waited for Bai Xi Xing to drive his car over.
【This is very important. It is related to the final fusion of the Bai Yi’s soul.】
【When you collected these soul fragments, you probably also noticed that they all have their own personalities and appearances. They are now very different to Bai Yi and almost like a new, independent person.】
【Some subconsciously reject the fact that they are Bai Yi and are unwilling to integrate with Bai Yi. If they continue to hold such thoughts, the final fusion of the soul would fail, and unpredictable consequences may occur.】
Cheng Zhi Chu’s footsteps suddenly stopped. His immediately became tense. The system comforted him: 【We will also help out when the soul is getting fused. We definitely won’t let Bai Yi be in danger.】
【But in order to ensure successful soul fusion, we need your help.】
[What can I do?] Cheng Zhi Chu immediately asked.
【To put it simply, you need to help them create a sense of belonging and identity. Let them realise that they are indeed a part of Bai Yi.】
The system said: 【They all like you. Bai Yi too. You can take advantage of this and let them find a point of similarity…..】
【Also, they have been ghosts for a long time and have forgotten about their lives as a human. If we can shorten the gap between humans and ghost, we can also strengthen their sense of identity.】
【So I’ll now give you an ability. You can help them become a living human for a while and go back with you to see your family. Like this, they can relive what it is like to be “human”.】
【When they are “human”, they will not be able to use their abilities, and will not be able to fight. This is an advantage for you.】
Cheng Zhi Chu was elated: [How can I use this ability to turn them “human”?]
【It’s very simple. It’s what you are best at.】
The system’s voice suddenly became teasing.
【You naturally just have to kiss them.】
Bai Yi’s Diary (Part 85)
(Continued from the previous entry)
What I am most worried about is Zhi Chu getting hurt.
The other top three fears are “never being able to see Zhi Chu”, “Zhi Chu falling in love with someone else”, “Zhi Chu seeing my dairy and notebook”, “Zhi Chu’s family against our relationship”, “Zhi Chu not willing to marry me”…….
There’s too many. They’re all ranked top three.
