Chapter 218: The Moonlight in His Heart [Extra: Bai Yueguang (END)]
Last night, Bai Qingquan dreamed that he was climbing Qiuming Mountain with Shi Lei all night. The house Shi Lei bought was located next to it. At the beginning of the dreams, there were few clouds, but halfway through, it began to rain.
This was the not first rain he encountered on Qiuming Mountain. It was just a slight drizzle, so it didn’t matter if he used an umbrella or not. Since it had rained so heavily yesterday, Shi Lie originally wanted to cover him with an umbrella, to keep his body dry from the raindrops, but he refused.
He had never been in the rain before, so he wanted to enjoy it thoroughly.
However, he underestimated the intensity of the rain as it continued to pour harder and more fiercely. Eventually the raindrops slammed on him loudly, with a bang, soaking his body red. The rain fell on his chin causing him to open his mouth slightly as the rain dripped down the corners of his mouth.
Still, he was happy, so happy. He was able to accept this rapid rain without an umbrella, without any protection. The bigger the rain got, the more unbearable it was, but the happier he felt. In the end, the pain of the raindrops hitting his body was no longer painful. On the contrary, it made him feel crazy and happy.
He was able to accept the dew that had watered him. He grabbed Shi Lei’s arm and the two headed towards the highest point of the mountain together. When they reached the top, the rained had stop. It had covered the entire vegetation its raindrops, soaking them wet. Both he and Shi Lei were drenched. Shi Lei stretched out his hand and wiped the water on his forehead and chin and he couldn’t help himself but hugged Shi Lei and didn’t let go for a long time.
Then he woke up and laid down in Shi Lei’s arms.
“Do you want to take a shower?” Shi Lei asked in a low voice.
He shook his head and did not move. He was exhausted.
Shi Lei said: “You don’t need to move. I’ll wash you.”
Bai Qingquan still shook his head, his voice was a little hoarse as he said: “I like this taste.”
Shi Lei stopped talking. He needed to let Bai Qingquan sleep honestly, but truly this fairy wasn’t afraid of death.
He stretched out his hand and brushed away the tears on Bai Qingquan’s face, and gently kissed his ears.
The beautifully made hanfu was scattered on the ground in a messy manner. Bai Qingquan remembered the feeling of being watered by heavy rain even in his sleep. He felt that his body was like a container, and it was full and about to overflow, and so was his heart.
His physical fitness was quite good, so good that it not only surprised himself, but even Shi Lei was astounded.
Shi Lei is a rough man. He doesn’t know how to pity and cherish jade*. He was fierce and cruel, making him cum twice. He thought that he would walk unnaturally the next day, but while his legs were a bit soft the next day, and his walked seemed to be a bit forked, there was no pain.
*(怜香惜玉) Idiom referring to a man with a tender heart that takes care of his beloved. || In this context he’s saying Shi Lei was the opposite way in bed.
It felt like he was just dreaming of climbing Qiuming Mountain all night.
When Wei Ge saw him, he was taken aback for a moment, and said: “You look so good today.”
He was very happy as he felt Bai Qingquan had listened to what he said and had gone to bed early yesterday. He looked well rested and was in good condition. His complexion was healthy, and his face was full of spring.
Bai Qingquan participated in the opening ceremony for <Night Talk at the Ming Palace> in a radiant state.
The show broke the premiere record of <The East Palace is Coming> as soon as it started broadcasting. It was a completely different from the theme and style of the East Palace. It reflected the Tang Dynasty, and was designated as the ultimate romance, ultimate magnificence, and ultimate thriller. Bai Qingquan, Zheng Siqi, and Shen Jintai appearing in the same long shot detonated the hot search.
<Night Talk at the Ming Palace> was a big hit.
Relying on this drama, Bai Qingquan once again returned to the top position, and his popularity was equal to that of Shen Jintai. This was the advantage of TV dramas. Once they explode, they are far more popular than movies.
He had now become the white moonlight to many people again. The black history of the past seems to have become a thing of the past, as no one seems to remember it anymore. Wherever he goes, there was only stars and the moon, as if the scandal of the past had never existed. He was still the white moonlight with unparalleled beauty and excellent reputation like before.
But only he knew that he was no longer the white moonlight in the hearts of his fans. Whether or not his alt account was exposed, he knew that while the love of his fans was strong, true, and grand, it was unreliable. It was meaningless and never long-lasting, as one day, they will leave him. He won’t be the white moonlight forever in their lives.
But he’s Shi Lei’s white moonlight, and that had remained from beginning to end. It was enough for him to be a person’s white moonlight for a lifetime. He was quite satisfied with it.
On the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival, Bai Qingquan moved into his new home.
The moon was bright on this day, big and round, as it shone its rays through the floor-to-ceiling windows. This moon not only casted its light on his new house, but also on everything in the world, illuminating the clear spring (Qingquan) water that flows down from the stone (Shi) for decades to come.
The author has something to say:
Next up is the paring of Shan Cheng. The playboy who’ll be attacked by a black belly*. The Xiao Bai couple, just like Shen Jintai and his wife will also appear from time to time to show their affection and call them their husbands. Shen Jintai and Yan Qiuchi will also make occasional appearances.
*Black belly = Term use to describe someone who acts kind on the outside, but they are dark and soulless on the inside.
Kinky Thoughts: This marks the end of the Bai Qingquan’s chapters. Awwww. I really wanted more. I really like this couple. Next up will be Yan Yaoxuan x Shan Cheng pairing.
For those who are not getting the first half of the chapter… it’s an allusion to what they were doing in bed. Think of the rain as Shi Lie, the umbrella as the condom that’s trying to protect Bai Qingquan from Shi Lei’s “raindrops”. When the reach the top of the mountain it’s the climax. You get the point.
Warning Warning Warning… Read below before proceeding to the next chapter
The extra between Yan Yaoxuan x Shan Cheng has dubious consent issues in terms of their relationship. While there is no rape, and consent is given when they do have sex, there is coercion and force used in the beginning that basically forces Yan Yaoxuan into dating Shan Cheng. Their relationship starts off pretty toxic and they sort of communicate in the end (sort of). Honestly speaking, their relationship has more red flags than the country this novel was written in.
While I’m not a fan of this type of thing, for the sake of completing the translation of this novel, I’ll translate those chapters. Keep in mind that it’s trying to go the dark route as Shan Cheng is a black bellied gong. Yan Yaoxuan is also set up to be the cliché I don’t want it but turns out I actually do type since they both fight for the gong position. It’s written to satisfy a common trope you often see in danmei and BL in general. At the end of the day, this is just fiction, so thankfully none of this is real.
Anyways, if this is not your thing, I strongly suggest you do not read it and skip the entire extras surrounding them and read the final chapter when it’s released, which is chapter 233. I will be frank, don’t read it if this kind of thing offends or disturbs you just for the sake of completion (like I am doing).
As a final note, I hope that this pairing does not affect your overall view of this novel because it doesn’t align with your taste. Besides this, I believe the rest of the novel is pretty good.

Oh man I really loved these extras but I’m not sure if I’ll read the next ones. Maybe I’ll read a few and see how it feels but yeah thanks for all the work you’ve done and otherwise I’ll see you for the last chapter!
I thought the previous chapter was the last extra 🤡 I really loved everything! The relationship they have is very beautiful ( ◜‿◝ )♡ the way the author did the censorship was very poetic and I understood them immediately, about Yan Yaoxuan’s extras and his black belly Gong, Personally, I love toxic, I guess I’m a bit of a masochist (? I’m excited about that kind of thing, especially since, after all, it’s fiction, I would never support something like that in real life, so I just take advantage of this “loophole” haha
Thanks for all your effort! ( ˘ ³˘)♥
Thanks for the heads-up! Will be heading to the last chapter!
One thing you got to give to Chinese authors: They’re unparalleled when it comes to skirting around censorship! It’s really true when they say that “necessity is the mother of invention”. The beginning of the chapter was genius 😚👌 clear enough that even those unfamiliar with Chinese literature could understand, but “clean” enough to not be censored.
Overall, I’m very happy with BQQ’s ending. He’s a real sweetheart and deserves all the good things!
Thank u for the warning but i have a thing for black bellied gongs 😈 hoho
