Chapter 86: Out of Control Photobook (5)
It’s an ability that needs a kiss to be used?
When he heard the systems words, Cheng Zhi Chu’s first reaction was refusal.
Bai Yi is here. How can he kiss others in front of him ——– Although the ‘other person’ is also him…. But they are still different individuals. He really can’t convince himself!
【You can’t do this with that kind of mentality.】 The system said, 【If even you yourself don’t believe that they are one person, how will you let them think that they are the same?】
Your words makes sense……..
Cheng Zhi Chu revealed a look of understanding but where his eyes moved over to Bai Yi who stood next to him and then the ghosts. He really couldn’t move his feet.
【The kiss for this ability is not limited to the lips. You can do it anywhere.】 The system snorted. 【Fine, you should go home first to make sure Qin Ji isn’t doing anything terrible.】
Cheng Zhi Chu’s heart jumped. At this moment, Bai Xi Xing drove the car over to the villa gates. He waved at him and said, “Junior Brother hop on. I’ll drop you off.”
Bai Xi Xing liked to stay in the villa alone so there was no driver here. He had always been driving himself back and forth.
“Let’s go Zhi Chu.”
Bai Yi reached out and rubbed Cheng Zhi Chu’s head. His eyes swept over the other ghosts and, without saying anything, he pulled Cheng Zhi Chu over to the car.
Cheng Zhi Chu thought about it again and again. In the end he requested for the groom to use his ability to hide the presence of the fragments.
Fortunately, they are still in a ghost state and are not bound by space. After disappearing, Cheng Zhi Chu didn’t know where they went but he knew that they would be able to keep up with him. Otherwise the car would not be able to fit them all in.
Bai Xi Xing moved onto the highway and very quickly arrived at his home.
Cheng Zhi Chu was extremely anxious. He rushed over to his floor with Bai Xi Xing and Bai Yi behind him. Although he had already used the coin in the car to grant good fortune to his family, he was still worried. He hurriedly knocked on the door.
The door to his home opened with a creak. The one who opened the door was his sister Ling Ling. Seeing that her brother had returned, she revealed a happy look. She smiled and said to him: “You’re finally home brother!”
Seeing that there wasn’t anything wrong with his sister, Cheng Zhi Chu breathed a sigh of relief. At the same time, he could smell the aroma of food coming from inside the house as well as the faint sound of his parents chatting and laughing. Everything was very calm.
Cheng Zhi Chu was finally able to ease his anxious heart. His eyes fell over to his sister’s leg and he rubbed her hair while asking gently: “Is your leg better now?”
“It’s already all better now.” Cheng Ling Ling stuck out her tongue. She suddenly got excited and pulled at his sleeve, “Brother, why didn’t you say earlier that you closely interacted with Xiao Xiao on stage? You’re so lucky! What does it feel like being so close to Xiao Xiao? Hurry and tell me all about it……..”
The girl was excited and lively. She held onto her brother and chattered nonstop. Cheng Zhi Chu coughed and said: “Stop fussing Ling Ling. I brought other friends over. You should let them in first.”
Cheng Ling Ling now noticed the two people standing behind her brother. She first quietly gave her apologies and then she looked over at Bai Yi and Bai Xi Xing. For a moment, she was shocked and then she became a little shy. Hiding behind her brother, she said in a small voice: “Hello…..”
“Hello.” Bai Xi Xing gracefully smiled at her. “You are Ling Ling right? We are your brother’s friend and senior. I’ve heard a lot about you. Seeing you today, you really are a cute girl.”
“Please come in………”
Faced with two handsome young men, the lively Cheng Ling Ling was somewhat overwhelmed. After inviting them into the house, she tugged at her brothers sleeve and complained unhappily in a small voice.
“Brother, how did you get to know so many handsome guys? Why haven’t I heard of it?”
Cheng Zhi Chu coughed. He uncomfortably tried to explain: “You also heard it. Just then was my school senior. The older one is his brother and also my………”
He hesitated. The words that was about to be said was swallowed back down. He then changed it: “My good friend.”
He thought about it and in the end didn’t reveal the truth. Afterall, his relationship with Bai Yi was only just confirmed and it has not yet stabilised. This was also the first time for Bai Yi to visit. If he told his family that he is his boyfriend, his parents would probably faint on the spot. It’s better to take things slow………
“There’s also Mr. Qin Ji. He’s also an amazingly handsome guy.”
Cheng Ling Ling looked a little upset: “It’s not fair. Why do you know so many handsome guys? There’s not even a decent looking one around me…….”
She didn’t have any intention to ask her brother to help her find a match. Firstly, it was because she could tell that her brother’s friends are a little too much older than her and secondly, even if she is interested in them, they probably won’t be interested in her. This is something that she herself is well-aware of.
But everything that came out of Mr. Qin Ji’s mouth was about her brother and whenever he mentioned her brother, his eyes would soften significantly. Could he be the same as Mr. Gu Zhen and also be interested in her brother……..?
The girl secretly muttered inside. When Cheng Zhi Chu heard Qin Ji’s name, his heart went cold. He immediately walked over to the living room and saw the handsome man chatting happily with his father.

“You’re here Zhi Chu.”
Qin Ji noticed his arrival and immediately got up. He smiled at him and, as if he was very familiar with him, he walked over to hold his hand: “I’m happy to finally see you again.”
Cheng Zhi Chu’s expression changed. With his hand being held by Qin Ji, he couldn’t help but stiffen up. He then quickly gritted his teeth and pulled Qin Ji over to his room.
“Come with me.”
“It looks like Zhi Chu has a lot to talk to me about.” Qin Ji didn’t seem to mind his unfriendly attitude. Instead, he smiled and said to Cheng Zhi Chu’s father, “Sorry uncle. I’ll have to leave for a bit.”
“It’s fine.” His father replied. He then looked over at Bai Xi Xing and Bai Yi. He smiled and asked, “You are……….?”
Bai Xi Xing actively responded to Father Cheng but Bai Yi continued to coldly watch Qin Ji. Qin Ji’s gaze also met with his and for a moment it felt like time had stopped. Qin Ji then removed his line of sight and gently followed behind Cheng Zhi Chu with a smile.
Cheng Zhi Chu closed the door and also locked it to prevent his family from coming in accidentally.
Qin Ji sat down on his bed and started to examine the furnishings in his bedroom. He smiled and said: “It’s pretty clean……..Do you like this game? What a coincidence, I also played it.” He pointed at a game character poster on the wall.
“Less nonsense.” Cheng Zhi Chu’s expression was very bad. For Qin Ji, he was both afraid and angry, “Why did you come to my house? What do you want?”
“Don’t think too much. It’s just a simple visit.”
Qin Ji smiled slightly: “I like you, so I want to know your family and get along with them. Is there a problem with that?”
“But I don’t like you.”
Cheng Zhi Chu originally wanted to say that he hated Qin Ji but he was afraid of angering the other person and he’s also a part of Bai Yi so he didn’t say it so harshly.
“I know that these are your true feelings.” Qin Ji said, “When you kissed me, I thought that you liked me and that my love was reciprocated…….”
Having said that, he suddenly smiled at him. He then lowered his voice: “But after entering the photobook, I understood. You don’t have any feelings for me and only did it to seal me in the Photobook.”
“You will never understand how ecstatic I was when you kissed me……”
Cheng Zhi Chu didn’t say anything. He just listened to him speak. He didn’t want to respond to Qin Ji and he also didn’t know what to say.
For a moment, Qin Ji appeared to be reminiscing and was in daze. He then quickly smiled and said: “I’m here to see your family because I am the only human amongst the soul fragments. I should take advantage of this shouldn’t I?”
“If I can get your family’s approval, maybe one day you will soften your attitude towards me and like me back……….”
“Impossible.” Cheng Zhi Chu said, “Soon you will return to the photobook.”
“How would you know that it’s impossible without trying?” Qin Ji chuckled and said, “So don’t worry. I won’t hurt your family.”
He suddenly stood up. His pale and beautiful fingers brushed past Cheng Zhi Chu’s eyes and he leaned down slightly to whisper in his ear: “I won’t be interested in anyone other than you.”
“……….” Cheng Zhi Chu took a step back while covering his ear. Seeing Qin Ji’s eyes that was filled with deep affection, he stiffly opened the door and left.
Qin Ji chuckled behind him. At this moment, Cheng Ling Ling also happened to come over to call them over to eat.
Cheng Zhi Chu returned to the living room. The dining table ws already filled with food and the others had already sat in their seats. Bai Yi saw Cheng Zhi Chu walk over and immediately revealed a gentle smile. He pointed to the empty seat next to him and said: “Come and sit Zhi Chu.”
“En.” Cheng Zhi Chu nodded and sat on Bai Yi’s right hand side. On his left was an empty seat. Qin Ji took advantage of his height and long legs and managed to quickly snatch up that seat. He smiled at Bai Yi and Cheng Zhi Chu.
“…………” Bai Xi Xing quietly coughed. He could only sit in another seat. He had wanted to occupy the seat next to Junior Cheng but his plan had unfortunately failed.
Everyone was seated at the dining table. Cheng Zhi Chu’s mother saw that there were so many handsome young men here today and was very pleased. She smiled and graciously persuaded them to eat more.
“Can you drink?”
Father Cheng pulled out a bottle of white wine and several wine glasses. He asked the young men at the table: “Drink a few with me?”
“Jeez you. What kind of person makes a child drink with them on their first meeting…….” Mother Cheng scolded him. She then smiled and said, “Don’t mind him. You don’t need to drink if you can’t drink. Our family isn’t interested in forcing others to drink. It’s enough if you eat well.”
“Auntie is being too polite.” Bai Xi Xing smiled. He took the initiative to take a glass and pour some for himself and Father Cheng. He said: “I’ll drink with you. I like to drink but my cousin won’t be able to do it. He has some alcohol allergies.”
“Sorry uncle. I really can’t drink.”
Bai Yi lowered his eyes. His attitude was polite and gentle. Father Cheng naturally didn’t blame him. He just smiled and asked Qin Ji: “What about you?”
“What an unfortunate coincidence uncle.” Qin Ji revealed an apologetic smile, “I’m also allergic.”
Cheng Zhi Chu’s movements stopped. He was a little surprised and couldn’t help but glance next to him ——– Bai Yi and Qin Ji both cannot drink alcohol. Was this just a coincidence or was this because they are the same person?
He naturally didn’t think this because they were both allergic to alcohol but he suddenly had a strange feeling. It was as if he finally found a point of similarity between them.
“Then Xi Xing will drink with me.” Father Cheng smiled. “My son also can’t drink so I usually drink alone. It’s very boring. You can drink a few with me.”
“No problem.” Bai Xi Xing smiled.
“It’s a good thing for young people to not tamper with cigarettes or alcohol.” Mother Cheng smiled and said, “Here, eat more.”
Bai Yi and Qin Ji both smiled and responded. Cheng Zhi Chu picked at the rice in his bowl and saw that everything in his home was going on as usual. Bai Yi accompanied him and his family to have dinner and everything was very warm. It was like everything that had happened was just an illusion……
Cheng Zhi Chu secretly glanced at Bai Yi. Bai Yi’s line of sight also happened to look over at the same time. Their eyes met for a moment and Cheng Zhi Chu suddenly felt his heart racing. He shyly looked away.
Bai Yi remained calm and his eyes didn’t show any signs of fluctuations. However, when he stretched out to put up some food, the back of his hands seemingly inadvertently brushed against Cheng Zhi Chu’s hand. This action of his seemed to also carry a hint of intimacy and ambiguity.

Cheng Zhi Chu immediately blushed. The hands holding onto the chopsticks shook and he almost dropped them.
“I remember that you like to eat shrimp, right?” Qin Ji who sat next to him suddenly smiled. He used a communal chopstick to pick up a few shrimps for Cheng Zhi Chu and placed it in his bowl, “Here, eat more.”
“How did you know?” Cheng Zhi Chu widened his eyes in surprise and looked over at Qin Ji.
“I know everything about you.” Qin Ji answered gently. But because those words seemed to carry an ambiguous meaning, he quickly added, “As your friend, I naturally know about your preferences.”
“Zhi Chu, do you want soup?”
Bai Yi sat on Cheng Zhi Chu’s left hand side and asked with a smile. His eyes however moved over to Qin Ji for a moment and it was extremely cold.
Qin Ji didn’t’ say anything. He just smoothly peeled the shell off the shrimp and placed it in Cheng Zhi Chu’s bowl. He said: “If you want more just tell me. I’ll peel it for you.”
Cheng Zhi Chu was sandwiched between the two of them and cold sweat formed across his forehead. He couldn’t help but feel that something is wrong with the atmosphere………
“You both are so considerate. Don’t be so polite with Zhi Chu. You should also hurry and eat.”
Mother Cheng smiled and persuaded them. Fortunately, the elders didn’t think too much about it and just thought that their son’s relationship with them was very good.
She lifted a glass of orange juice and sipped it before asking casually: “The two of you are handsome and you both have good personalities…….Do you already have a partner?”
“Cough, cough cough………”
Cheng Zhi Chu who was drinking soup was surprised and almost choked. He looked at his mother with wide eyes and his heart was very vigilant———-What does mum want to do?!
“I don’t have one yet.” Qin Ji smiled, “Though I do have someone that I like. They still haven’t responded to me yet.”
“Oh, how can there be a girl who doesn’t want you?” Mother Cheng was surprised, “You’re so good, how can that be…..”
“Aunty you’re praising me too much. I’m not that good.”
Qin Ji lowered his eyes and seemed to glance over at Cheng Zhi Chu. He sighed slightly and said: “It would be great if that person also thinks the same way you do………I will probably only like this person for the rest of my life. If he doesn’t like me, I will probably be single for a lifetime.”
(KKnotes: he and she in chinese are pronounced the same so Mother Cheng doesn’t know that he is referring to a guy and just thought that he’s talking about a girl.)
Cheng Zhi Chu could only avoid his gaze.
“What a good child.” Mother Cheng recalled some sad history. She then quickly asked Bai Yi, “What about you child?”
“I just got together with my lover.” Bai Yi hooked up his lips and smiled softly. He said warmly, “I’m very happy. This is something that I have dreamed of. I have secretly loved him for more than ten years……..”
The smile on Qin Ji’s face suddenly disappeared. He looked darkly over at Bai Yi. In an instant, the atmosphere in the room had changed.
“Ah………Aunty, I’m still single and I don’t have anyone that I like.”
Seeing that the atmosphere wasn’t right, Bai Xi Xing hurriedly tried to sort it out: “My requirements aren’t too hard; it’s enough to be able to communicate and talk comfortably. If you know of someone suitable, please introduce her to me. I’ll be happy to meet her.”
“Ah……..Oh, is that so. Okay then. Aunty will keep an eye out for you.”
Mother Cheng also noticed that something wasn’t right. She quickly smiled and said: “Anyway, here. Eat more. Have a taste of the fish Aunty made…….”
Cheng Ling Ling took a bite of her food and didn’t speak. Her eyes swept between her brother and the two men sitting next to him.
The more she looked at them, the more she felt that the relationship between the three of them wasn’t as simple as friendship. When Mr. Bai Yi said that he has a lover, Mr. Qin Ji’s expression instantly changed…………Could it be that Mr. Bai Yi had stolen Mr. Qin Ji’s loved one?
Also there was her brother. His expression was quite unnatural. What is going on with him………..Could it be that the person that those two like is him?
Although it wasn’t good guessing randomly, the girl couldn’t stop. When her inner curiosity reached its peak, she suddenly heard another knock coming from the door. There seemed to me more visitors.
Cheng Ling Ling who was closest to the door ran over and opened it but there was no one outside. Only a gust of cold wind blew in causing her to shiver and quickly close the door again.
“Who is it? Are they here to collect money for the water and electricity?” Father Cheng asked.
“There’s no one outside. Maybe they knocked on the wrong door……” The girl shook her head and sat back down.
But Cheng Zhi Chu saw someone come in. Not only him, Bai Yi , Bai Xi Xing and Qin Ji also noticed.
It wasn’t just one person. The groom and the other soul fragments had all arrived.
Bai Yi’s Diary (Part 86)
I once imagined visiting Zhi Chu’s family, but I didn’t think that this day would come so soon.
……….And that it would make me so angry.
