Chapter 81.1 – Protagonist: New skill get.

If Xiu had not mentioned the doujinshi, Du Ze would have forgotten that he was carrying such a deadly device that he would have gotten rid of if he could.

The silly, cute reader’s mood was now extremely bitter.

It’s not because our army is incompetent, the enemy is just too cunning.1 The difficulty has now risen by one entire order of magnitude and he must prepare himself to bravely face his fate while the Moe Lord was acting strategically: Give a man a fish or teach him to fish – after learning from the doujinshi, we can slowly play again.

Du Ze suddenly realized a sad fact. Xiu pushing him down … Does he need to use a birthday wish for that? The Moe Lord’s H level had progressed to such an extent that with just a little bit of touching and licking, refusing is simply impossible. The Moe Lord’s H skills are already out of this world but, unexpectedly, he still remembers that little yellow (hardcore) book!

Noting the deep, profound pain in Du Ze’s eyes, the little Xiu tilted his head slightly and asked: “I can’t?”

… Moe Lord, don’t you know this book is very evil thing! This is not something kids should read! Q口Q

As the person who must live up to his promise, even though he already had one foot in the grave that he had dug himself, Du Ze still made one last ditch effort to escape, like a dying man’s death throes: “That book … It’s not good.”

“I want to see.” Xiu stretched out his hand and smiled as sweetly as a child who wanted to eat sweets. “You just said that today you will fulfill all my wishes.”

A person who doesn’t court death will not die. Why haven’t you graduated from death flag school yet?

Du Ze almost burst into tears.2 The contents of the small yellow (hardcore) book is not the problem, the problem is the doujinshi’s two main characters. If it was just an ordinary hardcore yaoi doujinshi, a certain silly, cute person wouldn’t be so worried about being forced to hand it over.

“… I really can’t?” asked Xiu softly. His head drooped and he looked very pitiful. Anyone who saw him like that would want to pile up all the treasures of the world in front of him to cheer him up, let alone a silly, crazed fanboy like Du Ze. A silly, cute person’s brain overheated. He immediately pulled out the doujinshi from his interspatial storage ring and handed it over.

Looking at the small black box that appeared in his hand, Du Ze remembered that the demon was still sealed by the son of god. He didn’t know how much Eric was stimulated by the contents of the book because even the thief Enoch, who was an expert at unlocking stolen treasures, couldn’t unseal this box. Du Ze looked at Xiu opposite him and a small hope sprang up in his heart: if the Moe Lord can’t open the seal, wouldn’t it be …. safe?!

The son of the lord, good job!

Du Ze looked at the gnome who was running off to study the small black box, full of enthusiasm. For the first time, Du Ze hoped that the rival would prove to be strong this time.

Xiu played with his machines and tools. Du Ze watched for a while, anxious, but eventually he unconsciously leaned back against a wall and fell asleep. When he woke up, Du Ze felt a warm body on his chest and when he bowed his head, he saw Xiu’s short flaxen hair and soft, velvet cloth that was slightly open, revealing a slender white neck. The gnome was sitting in his arms, his head down as he carefully read the book.

From this angle, Du Ze could see the page Xiu was reading which showed a naked man and a mighty, majestic beast engaged in harmonious activities.

Doujinshi: Yoooooooooooo~

Du Ze: …

Because he was extremely shocked, Du Ze almost stopped breathing. Xiu sensed the change in Du Ze’s breathing and looked up. His flax-colored bangs fell down on both sides, revealing a pair of bright eyes.

“Are you awake?”

Du Ze was still in a state of deep shock and asked: “You unsealed it?”

Xiu nodded and said lightly: “I used the anti-magic machine to draw out the light elements inside.”

Technology rules the world … Du Ze wanted to cry. The Moe Lord read two pages and learned pistol play. He read eight pages and learned mouth play. If the Moe Lord reads all of the pages of the doujinshi … This little student doesn’t want to know the result of the Moe Lord’s Ultimate Evolution Upgrade!3

Seeing Du Ze staring at the doujinshi with a deep and profound hatred, Xiu smiled. He held up the book then pointed at the drawing of the man, as excited as though he had discovered a new world.

“I didn’t realize I could play like this.”

Moe Lord, don’t look so happy when you get a new skill! TAT4

Xiu didn’t mind the lack of response from Du Ze. He turned the pages of the doujinshi to the ninth page – the human in the picture turned into the undead.

“Who is this man?” Xiu asked.

The inevitable question came. Du Ze braced himself. He looked at who Xiu was pointing at then froze. He thought Xiu was asking who the person who changed shape is but he was not pointing at the character who changed into the undead. Instead, he was pointing at the drawing of Eric.

“Who is he?” Xiu’s fingertips drew a circle on Eric’s face and asked again.

After the initial surprise, Du Ze felt like an unprepared student who was called on to recite by his teacher. He couldn’t say: Ah, that’s the author’s hand-picked rival, your official match.

Seeing that Du Ze did not respond, Xiu asked a different question, seemingly determined to figure out something: “Is this man you?”

Du Ze shook his head, unusually decisive. The man who was blushing and saying “I’m coming”5 is definitely not him!

After seeing Du Ze deny it, Xiu nodded his head to show that he understood then continued reading the doujinshi. He was very calm but some silly, cute person was not calm at all.

That’s … it? No more questions? Wait, this is not scientific! Shouldn’t Xiu pay more attention to the shape-changing protagonist of the doujinshi? Why didn’t he ask about it? Is it because the Moe Lord already knew it was him?!

Du Ze saw that Xiu once again skipped over the parts of the doujinshi where the protagonist transformed. Xiu seemed to be more interested in the bondage/toy play. Because he was too anxious about it, even though he knew that he might be raising a flag, Du Ze couldn’t help but ask: “You’re not curious about this man?”

Xiu’s hand stopped moving. His fingers were right on the protagonist who had turned from undead to gnome form.

“Do you want to say that he’s like me?” Xiu turned and looked up at Du Ze. “Or do you want to say … he is me?”

“- He is not me.” The gnome’s tone was exceptionally firm.

Du Ze saw his image reflected in the bright-coloured eyes and only his image, alone.

“If this person is you … “ Xiu pointed to the drawing of Eric and said: “… Then this other character is me. If this person is not you, then that other character is definitely not me.”

The corners of Xiu’s lips curved up in a dark but sweet smile.

“I will do this to you only and only I can do this to you.”

Du Ze was speechless. Xiu’s words were so shocking that when he opened his mouth, his heart felt like it was going to jump out of his throat. Xiu circled Du Ze’s neck with his arms and the two people’s lips touched lightly.

“Just like this …”

  1. 不是國軍無能,而是共軍太狡猾 – a historical quote “It is not that our army is incompetent, but the communist forces are too cunning” has become popular but modified slightly. Often used in cooperative team play when your team loses.
  2. 内牛满面 – literally “cow face” but it’s internet slang, somehow it means “tearful” or “burst into tears”
  3. 究極體 – the heck! This means the ultimate evolution of the Digimon’s body. I learned a new word today: digivolution.
  4. The raw actually said “skill get” and get was in English. This is a phrase from Japanese video games.
  5. 一庫 – this is the transliteration of the Japanese “iku” (to come). Apparently this is a common thing heard in JP AVs.

  1. Hii~ I know I’m late. I’m so sorry to hear that you feel sad and neglected when there are only a few comments. I’ve actually been reading this novel for a long time and barely making comments. Instead of making my own comment, I read everyone’s comment and saved my favorites to read them again. For that reason, I get tired of even making my own comment 😅

    But I will try to comment more to motivate you! Thank you for translating 💖

  2. Yes, yes, it’s all cute and lovey-dovey but what about all the people risking their necks that just got stuck in that super dangerous place?

  3. Thanks for the translation. I’ve been going thru this and enjoying it so much. I’m listening to it, especially while doing something else. I dont think to comment. You do great work!!!!

  4. Omg, I adore Xiu, does he think Du Ze hates the book because it shows Xiu having smexy time with someone else? He’s too adorable and kinky!

  5. NOW COMES SEXY GNOME TIME. I actually been waiting for this scene since I started the book

  6. I see. Thats why the harem members couldnt turn Xiu into the original, cute, good-hearted protagonist. Although they became a harem member, Xiu still didnt trust them. Thats why he keep collecting harem and keep falling.

    My poor Xiu T□T Lets spray the author’s house with Aunt Flo’s blood ==+

    1. i think everyone was screaming like a banshee in 2020, though not for the same reason 😂

  7. Sorry you feel neglected when there’s not a lot of comments. But I really don’t like to comment. Just know that I appreciate you translating this novel, because I wouldn’t have been able to read it with out you translator-san.

  8. “I will do this to you only and only I can do this to you.”

    Can’t take it sooo much love 💗💗💗💗💗☠️☠️

    Thank you for the translation 😘😘😘

  9. Omg Im sooo late….I missed so much 😢

  10. Omo… Xiu was very interested in the bondage/toy play parts. Good luck Du Ze!

    Thank you very much for the chapter!!!

  11. !!!!thank you for these masterpiese !!! 1 day without sleep and food just reading this cosy, cute story!!! waiting for next chapter!!!

  12. ” Xiu pointed to the drawing of Eri and said … ” -> ” Xiu pointed to the drawing of Eric and said … “

  13. Just wondering but….. if Xiu is reading the book, will he do the eight forms? But he still doesn’t have the angel form yet…. I hope it comes soon.

  14. “yoooooo”.. I knew Xiu will only focus on the smut part of the dj to practices on Du Ze later.. LoL.. Because that will involve Du Ze, anything that isn’t involved with Du Ze can go to the trash can.. Nice Xiu.

    Thanks for the chap 💞

  15. Thanks, nice seeing the doujinshi finally make his appearance again! 😆
    As always xiu love for our reader is really cute!

    1. I would never in a million years have expected Xiu to say that but when he did I was like “wow it makes perfect sense!” And its so sweet.

  16. Waaaaaaahhhh! The prediction I made in the previous chapters actually came true!!!! Xiu really did sit between DuZe’s leg pointing positions he wants to try out and even wants to try the toy part!!! Am I psychic?!!! Am I reading too much yaoi?!!! Was it just predictable?!!

    Thank you for the chapter!!!

    Have you considered converting the text to an image format and posting it that way? The people who come to your site can read the text on the images freely, but people can’t copy it and post it directly to aggregator sites. They have to type it out word-by-word, so they actually have to work for it. Exiled Rebel Scanlations and some other groups do that. Here is an example:

    Ignore the second chapter after the real chapter. That’s just in there for the copy-and-pasters.

    In the meantime, what a funny chapter! Du Ze has a delightful balance of mortification and anticipation. Poor guy, cheering on the rival… And it ended on such a romantic note, too. As usual, the gnome is my favorite!

    1. Thanks, I’ll fix it. The aggregators just copy the image so that won’t work. Also images are a pain to read on mobile.

  18. Lol, poor Du Ze! His last hope was overcome by science. Plus, Xiu has learned more health practices! The faithful companion is too op for poor little Du Ze!

  19. So doujn-san is the strongest companion???
    Xiu just don’t want to acknowledge that the person in question is him.
    I was so in love with the gnome’s stubbornness.

  20. Awesome chapter translator! Maybe you should reinstate the password again but with shorter time (like a week?); or you can break up the text with screenshots of the actual translator. Make sure to add a big fat watermark at the end of each paragraph if you do that; that should teach them a lesson 🙂

  21. It’s alright translator, we’re sorry this happened.
    Here some hugs for you~ ╰(*´︶`*)╯

    Some people just don’t appreciate your hard work. ٩(˙—˙ )۶

    Thanks for the chapter! ^ ^

  22. Yooooooo doujin-san
    welcome back~

    I think i’ve found my new favorite phrase : “Release the doujin!!” 😜😜

    Aaahh I wanna read the next part but this little girl is too poor and can’t buy kofi for reika 😢

  23. T-T
    I feel bad for Du Ze..
    How will Gnome play!!??

    Hey. And I just commented in the prev chap about the NU page.. Please check it out. Somebody posted the tentacle action there. XD
    Thanks for the chapter!

  24. The moe lord is so sweet and naughty in this chapter and poor Du Ze well at least Du Ze get to enjoy pleasure in various forms now by Xiu so s*x will never be boring but filled with variety and doujinshi sama is proud to have accepted a disciple who will continue his teachings hahaha… B)

  25. Unsealed doujinshi greatings: Yoooooooooooo~
    that had me laughting so hard ^^
    I thought Xiu would get jealous, but as expected of a master yandere Moe Lord, his reaction doesn’t disappoint
