Chapter 33.2 – Protagonist: I really want to make a chain and shackle you to me.

It was like someone had pressed a pause button. The runes on the outer ring of the wheel of time all lit up, emitted a dazzling light. The unprepared Du Ze’s eyes were blinded by the intense light and teared up.

Du Ze wiped the tears from his eyes and put his glasses back on. Some silly, cute person looked at his surroundings and froze – what is this place?

There was darkness all around him. Du Ze remembered his dream when he seemed to be suspended in a dark space and heard a bad signal telephone call.

Then the caller really came back.

[…… Why … The wheel of time …]

Like last time, the voice was still hard to understand and interrupted by static noise, but even if there is a strong interference, he could still hear the sound.

[…… I found you …]

The communication was interrupted again. Du Ze did not have time to question that voice. He tried to call out, but there was no reply. It was totally silent in the darkness. Only his voice could be heard. The last time this happened, he was dreaming and he woke up soon after, so this time he was in … a dream?

Wake Up!

A stupid Moe person then pinched his own thigh forcefully. Since it was a dream, he used a lot of strength to pinch so that the flesh of his thigh was bruised. 1

Wu wu wu2——QAQ!

The pain made Du Ze come out from the illusion and the first thing he saw was a huge colorful hourglass in front of him. When Du Ze was able to get his breath back, he stared at the hourglass – wtf, is this also an illusion?

The hourglass that suddenly appeared in front of him was about 10 meters high, and the sand inside was also the size of Du Ze’s fingertips. There was not much left of the sand in the upper part and it looked like the sand was stuck, unable to fall. Du Ze stared at sand in the hourglass. His thoughts turned treacherous: if he makes the sand flow through, can he leave this place?

So some jerk kicked the hourglass.

The hourglass shook, shed a grain of sand, and then the sand became stuck again, as if mocking a level five noob.

[System: The player “Du Ze” used a serial kick attack on “Hourglass”]

Every time Du Ze kicked the hourglass, a grain of sand fell. When Du Ze was about to kick it for the fifth time, it was as though the anger gauge of the hourglass had reached its peak and the hourglass suddenly burst into a blinding light.

[System: “Hourglass” used a killing blow on the player “Du Ze.” The player “Du Ze” is sent back to the resurrection point.]

When Du Ze regained his senses, he saw that he had returned to the lab. A silly, cute person glanced around him blankly. The lab looked like a thief had rifled through the room; all sorts of papers were scattered on the ground. Old John, who had been outside of the metal building, was nowhere to be seen.

A clear birdsong sounded and Du Ze watched as a red bird flew down in front of him. The bird was about one meter long, had a soft and slender neck, patterned feathers, and a long, beautiful tail hair forked like fish. Anyone who looks at it would know what it is – a Phoenix.

The beautiful Phoenix saw Du Ze staring at it and happily spread it wings and chirped – this action looks exactly like that little chick that was always acting cute!

Du Ze stared at the Phoenix with horror: Isn’t this the protagonist’s cute pet?!

The Fire Phoenix tweeted then flew up and perched on the shoulder of someone who had appeared without Du Ze noticing him. It was a stranger with brown hair who looked very approachable.

Who’s this?

The brown-haired man saw that Du Ze was puzzled. He smiled warmly and said: “I am Old John.”

… what?

At this point, a sigh came from behind the Du Ze.

“You’ve finally come out.”

Du Ze looked up. Behind him was the huge wheel of time. A person was sitting on top of it, looking down at Du Ze. The silly reader hadn’t had time to really look at him before that person jumped down from the wheel.


Countless white papers flew around. Du Ze was ruthlessly pushed down onto the heap of research reports, making his back hurt. As he lay on a pile of papers, he straightened his crooked glasses, and looked up.

This is… Xiu?

The Xiu who straddled him looked a lot more mature. Xiu’s gnome form was supposed to look like a twelve-year-old, but the person in front of him looked like a fifteen-year-old. Xiu lowered his head. The two of them looked at each other. Xiu’s flax-colored hair hung softly and half-covered his bright amber eyes that looked almost crazy with emotion.

Du Ze was stupefied. Xiu leaned down and mercilessly bit Du Ze’s mouth – it can only be described as a bite. It had no tenderness and was used to vent Xiu’s crazed feelings. Du Ze even tasted blood. He whined and waved his hands, confused by what was happening.3

When Du Ze was finally released, he did not have to look in the mirror to know that his mouth must be swollen. Xiu moved his head close to Du Ze’s and the gnome’s burning hot breath assaulted his ear.

“I really want to make a chain and tie you to me.”

What the hell is going on?

The shocked Du Ze heard the voice of the brown-haired man explain.

“The little Master is so excited because he has been waiting for you for four years.”



The first year – missing

The next year – waiting

The third year – limit

The fourth year – collapse

– [black box]

  1. Literally “so his thigh meat was heroic” 大腿肉壮烈了
  2. crying sound
  3. Literally “completely unaware of what had happened.” Translator’s note – basically emphasizing that he was clueless (as usual, lol).

  1. Wait…. So the sand was stuck but…there was a small amount of sand so…does it mean that time is ‘running out’ and the end is near?????

  2. As everyone else, I have the same reaction : What!!!?? 4 Years !!?? Crap , he skip a lot o time ! Xiu can really eat you now !! haha

  3. Holy quack! 4 years! That time skip must be compensating for Xiu and Du Ze not following the 3 year waiting period and went ahead to explore. Wow.

  4. Aerilistarylia Sae

    I cried for Xiu when it says his eyes was crazed with emotion.
    I wonder how Xiu felt all those years… Urgh my heart.😫

  5. Ah… thank you Xiu!!! (Sexy?) Robot butler get!! Old john has a new body, and rolly polly chick is a lot less rolly polly!! The protagonist’s coolness factor has been increased by 200%!!

    Xiu sure is dedicated to Du Ze though… to wait for that long when all prior evidence would make it look like he’d never come back (what with the gnomes disappearing and what not)

    I’m glad he isn’t the kind of yandere who takes it out on bystanders! Phoenix chick and old john look better than ever!!

    About time we got that kiss(?)! Seriously though… Xiu, you’re a gnome! Surely you can think of more interesting ways than a chain *wink* *wonk*

  6. I love how the author describes du ze as silly cute person and xiu as moe lord 😄 how i love the fluffiness the updates each day gives me

  7. Author four years is too much wth
    Still how old does that make Xiu in human years? Does it mention Xiu’s age in novel pre time skip?
    How old is Du Ze also?

    Also a lip bite ohmygosh! Hungry much Xiu
    Thank you for the translation, you are an absolute champion!

  8. 4 years?!!!! The plot timeline more or less has gone back to what it was supposed to be (i mean, Xiu originally stayed 3 years or something in the Lost Lands), but the difference we have now a needy protagonist who’s missing some cute reader more than ever. OMG Xiu and DZ are the best couple ever!
    I loved it! Can’t wait for more chapters!

  9. 300 Days in that room to learn all the gnome secrets only to lose Du Ze for another four years? I’m surprised Xiu is even capable of proper speech after all that

  10. Oh my! 4 years!?
    Omg I cannot imagine how crazy Xiu became because of him
    My heart is pounding with excitement for what is to come!

  11. Ah I am dying to know what gonna happen next
    Thanks for the update
    I always love to read it
    Thanks very much for daily updates

  12. Du ze !!! Increase your level !! Like come-on you got defeated by a freaking hour glass!!! Wait… Does this mean that did ze anot die? He will get resurrected!!! Hell yeah!
    ( I also had the crazy thought to du ze moving slow enough to take a year for 1 kick )

  13. Little Fluffy Ninja Sheep

    I knew it!!!!
    I was expecting Xiu goind crazy after his disappearance!

    He kicked the hourglass four times so four years has passed… interesting.

    Kkekekeke, Du Ze won’t have easy time now that he’s back.

  14. Please tell me Xiu read the Doujinshi! OMG! Thank you so much for the update! So glad to have discovered this story!

  15. Opps guessed wrong! I thought it would show him something from the past or maybe even travel through time! I was partially right but also totally wrong!! XD

  16. 😂 After this Xiu is going to be crazier than before. Four whole years without his precious person. *cough*collarandchainsoon*cough*

    Xiu did something and fixed Old John? Does Xiu’s Gnome form grow into adulthood eventually? I thought he would remain a cute shota forever…

    How did Du Ze get out of the Wheel anyway? ~(・・?))

    1. Kicking Hour glass can make the device working properly just like some old TV. LoL. That logic can used with everthings~~

  17. i wanna say something… reader complain MC took best half of doujinshi for 1 month to occupy himself? this time he left behind the entire farking book for 4 years? i pray for you, reader. your chrysanthemum 100% thoroughly burst open!

  18. I genuinely read this chapter in fear making the smallest scrolls down as possible so it wouldn’t end.
    Xiu was already building up to something before bit by bit but now Du Ze went and disappeared for 4years and all those feeling have had quite as while to build up heheeeeee.
    I see great things ahead… for us a least our Du Ze on the other hand is probably gonna get…it.
    Thank you Team BC

  19. Ahhh dang it. I guessed wrong. Oh well! I can’t believe that years have passed since Du Ze fell into the wheel. One grain of sand actually corresponded to a whole year. Poor Reader. Now he’ll have to deal with the possessiveness of the Protagonist. (More cuteness for us though)

    1. Ah….. good point…. Didn’t occur to me that DuZe’s over enthusiasm in kicking the hourglass is what caused the 4 year time difference. Damn….. moral of the story: if you ever get stuck in a wheel of time, keep your hands and legs to yourselves.

  20. Du Ze is the most adorable reader (protagonist) I ever read~~ 😆😆
    Seems like Xiu yandere meter is already maxed out…
    Be careful, Du Ze! 😂😂
    Thanks for the chapter~ 😆

  21. Okay my heart gave a very big tug when he bit him ❤️
    It was so cute ! So beautiful! And sooooo precious! I fell in so much love with xiu again !
    He was waiting to the little cute reader for four years ! Anyway it was so precious I almost lost my sanity !
    Go protagonist, now you gotta make him yours for the four years you waited for him *grin devilishly*
