Chapter 232: Yao Cheng [Extra: Yao Cheng (END)]
Perhaps being under the influence of alcohol, Yan Yaoxuan thought that this time it would work out. However, because he was the shou, he couldn’t get up the next day and his crotch hurt badly.
Shan Cheng was very gentle and personally cooked for him. It was the first time he had seen Shan Cheng cooked. It was a western meal and was simple. He was considerate of Yan Yaoxuan’s condition, so he sent it to his beside.
Yan Yaoxuan felt that he couldn’t behave too weakly. He kept his mouth shut and didn’t mention what happened last night. After he ate, he continued sleeping.
In the evening, Shan Cheng will come again.
Of course, he refused and continued to struggle back, and forth which eventually led to Shan Cheng saying: “I don’t know whether you’re really resisting or just faking it.”
Yan Yaoxuan was taken aback for a moment: “What do you mean?”
Shan Cheng stayed silent, so Yan Yaoxuan grabbed him: “What do you mean? Tell me.”
Shan Cheng said: “Every time you resist, I don’t know if you really don’t want it, or you’re pretending not to.”
Yan Yaoxuan’s face flushed, as he recalled last night. Shan Cheng had asked him: “Do you want it or not?”
He covered his face with a pillow before responding: “…Yes.”
Thinking of this, Yan Yaoxuan blushed: “Get out!”
Shan Cheng said: “I think it’s best for you not to be duplicitous in the future. Tell me if you want it. If you don’t want it, just say it. We’re like this so what’s there to be embarrassed about.”
“I don’t want it!” Yan Yaoxuan said.
“Okay, I’ll stop.” Shan Cheng lay down beside him. However, he soon discovered that Yan Yaoxuan kept saying no for many days.
He began to worry if it was because his performance that day wasn’t good enough. He thought that their first time, overall, they both had enjoyed it. He believes that with improvement to his abilities, he’ll definitely get better and will make Yan Yaoxuan feel better.
However, Yan Yaoxuan kept saying no.
Eventually he couldn’t let Yan Yaoxuan off all the time. Late one night, when Yan Yaoxuan wanted to refuse and scold him, he persisted. He had discovered that Yan Yaoxuan always says “no” in normal times, but no matter whether he didn’t want it, or pretended not to, when the real guns came out, he only knew that he wanted it.
Yan Yaoxuan was ashamed to find that he had found this exhilarating. He found that he got more fun out of being a 0.
His only grievance was that Shan Cheng especially like positions that made him very uncomfortable that would make his crotch hurt the day after if he spread his legs too much. However, this worry was long gone after he gotten used to it.
Habit was truly a terrible thing!
One day when he was met up with Gao Weicheng, Gao Weicheng suddenly stared at him for a long time before saying: “Bro, I think you…”
Yan Yaoxuan glanced at him while drinking: “What?”
“I feel that you have changed.” Gao Weicheng said.
“What has changed?”
“It seems you have been… affected.” Gao Weicheng said.
Yan Yaoxuan: “…Believe it or not, I can still get it up!”
Gao Weicheng said aggrievedly: “Really, I feel that your eyes have a more amorous feeling. Not the way that it used to look like before.”
Yan Yaoxuan: “…”
“But it’s also better-looking, full of spring. When I look at you, you always seem to be in a good mood.”
Yan Yaoxuan: “…”
After Yan Yaoxuan went back, he thought about this issue very seriously. The result of thinking was that he rejected several courtesies from Shan Cheng.
“Will I become more like a woman if I keep getting fucked by you?” Yan Yaoxuan said.
Shan Cheng said: “It’s true. You seem more cooperative now.”
Yan Yaoxuan: “…”
After Shan Cheng reacted, he quickly tried to change the subject, but it was too late as Yan Yaoxuan didn’t let him touch him anymore.
Yan Yaoxuan cut his hair short to make himself look manlier, put on earrings, and got a snake tattoo near his index finger, which he thought looked cool. However, it turns out that all his efforts were in vain.
Because the consequences of him not letting Shan Cheng touch him for many days was that it stirred him up again. He was cleaned up so badly that in the end he could only call him “husband” obediently.
The summary given to him by Shan Cheng was “eat hard or not soft”.
Yan Yaoxuan didn’t say a word. He arched his eyebrows slightly, still giving off some defiance.
He… actually does like to eat.
Well, we’re done with this mess of a couple. Honestly, I would prefer not to have this at all, not because of the content, but rather the lack of content. Compared with Bai Qingquan and Shi Lei, this couple barely had any character or emotional development and I found that the writing was too rushed and lazy.
Next chapter is the final chapter.

Regardless of what I think of their relationship, I’m glad Shan Cheng respects his partner enough that he can take “no” for an answer.
I feel that everything was a bit rushed, I would have liked it to have lasted longer, Considering the fact that the BQ and SL extras had 27 episodes, still, I liked it, it wasn’t as toxic as I thought, But you can still see all the manipulation behind it and the red flags, but I take comfort in the fact that they are both the same 🤣
From everyone’s warnings, I really expected this extra story to be super rough. Which I considered kinda weird because the rest of the novel was decent about consent and being honest about the bedroom issues. Tbh, I don’t think this was particularly bad? At least compared to other danmei which are very messed up.
YYX clearly wants it and his behaviour reflects that. He pursued SC and kept going back to him despite having many chances to leave. He was not even unsure about his feelings as he states multiple times that he likes SC very much. I think SC’s confusion about whether YYX is willing stems from the fact that YYX keeps saying ‘no’ just to be contrary. SC stops when YYX tells him to stop. And also, YYX probably feels like he holds some kind of power over SC by being able to abstain. Because he sees SC as a the same type of powerful man like his brother, he uses that power to feel better about what he perceives as his weaknesses. In his mind, if YYX can control SC through sex, then he’s not the loser he always thought he was.
I’ve seen other couples with a similar dynamic (heterosexuals included) and while I don’t personally find it appealing, I can’t say it’s exactly wrong either. Is it healthy? I don’t think so. But at least these two messy weirdos are enjoying themselves, so what more can we say? Everyone involved needs therapy but I doubt that’s happening.
If someone introduced YYX to the concept of consensual non consent, I bet they would have a more harmonious time. And lot of roleplays.
I ended up reading it because I hoped to see three things:
1. Some emotional development when Yaoxuan’s parents were in the hospital and gong went back to China with him
2. Some emotional development when Yaoxuan realized his feelings for MC were different/shallower than his feelings for gong
3. The final confrontation upon finally coming out to the fam
Maybe the author wasn’t certain the couple would make it long term and didn’t want to write too much dogblood, or it wasn’t well received in the comments so stopped it early. I’m just disappointed that I didn’t get to see anything other than the initial toxic hurdle being overcome by the new couple. So what did I read it for? XD
Thanks for translating the extra regardless. I liked the story as a whole so it was nice to read it to the end.
