Chapter 83.1 – Reader: Shame Play.

Du Ze looked at the silver-blue ring on his finger. This is an interspatial storage ring with a story. It was a stage prop that the stud protagonist of the harem novel used to propose to his harem member. However, because of a silly, cute reader’s intervention, the object of the proposal changed from ♀ into ♂. Now, the Moe Lord upgraded the ring to its 2.0 version, in addition to its storage function, a binding function was added.

With it, the Moe Lord no longer has to worry about his family’s silly, cute reader getting lost.

Du Ze started walking. One step, two steps, … when he was five meters away from Xiu, there was a feeling as though there was an invisible elastic rope gently binding the hand that held the ring. Although Du Ze can continue to move forward, the force of the bond will become stronger and stronger. When he is 10 meters away, the invisible force will act like an elastic band that had reached its limit and it will “snap back,” pulling Du Ze back to be hugged by the ever-prepared Xiu.

Xiu pounced on Du Ze’s back, his arms around Du Ze. He looked up and asked: “Where are you going?’

Du Ze’s eyebrows twisted. It was some time before the cold (ashamed) and aloof from worldly affairs (heartbroken) Du Ze could squeeze out two words: “Nature’s call.”

Xiu took Du Ze’s hand in his. The red and blue rings shone brightly and contrasted with each other beautifully. “I’ll go with you.”

… Your Mom! This really is shame play!1 QAQ

Du Ze, looking at the gnome who wanted to go outside with him, almost fell down to his knees. Now he could not leave the Moe Lord’s line of sight. Although no one hesitates to pull down one’s pants when one is in a public toilet, to be watched while one is doing one’s business … that feeling is too much!

Seeing Du Ze’s facial paralysis as he stood frozen, the corners of Xiu’s eyes crinkled as he smiled, exposing a pair of tiny dimples: “Would you like me to unzip it for you?”

A certain silly, cute person felt as though he was being molested. He silently turned around then quickly attended to his physical needs.

After the incident last time, Xiu really did transform the interspatial ring into a “chain” that tied him to Du Ze. Now the two of them are as inseparable as Siamese twins. Du Ze can only move freely when he was within five meters of Xiu and if he moves more than 10 meters away, he will be sent back to the Moe Lord’s side.

“Will you be angry?” When Du Ze came out, Xiu suddenly widened his eyes and stared at Du Ze without blinking. “Have I made you feel uncomfortable by tying you to me?”

Du Ze was silent for a moment then shook his head. Although it seems as though his personal freedom had just died a quick death, some silly, cute person thought that, except for it being slightly more embarrassing, it’s probably the same as before.

He is always with Xiu. No matter where he wants to go, the Moe Lord will not stop him but will go there together with him.

Seeing Du Ze shaking his head, Xiu stretched out his arms to hold Du Ze. Because he was only as tall as Du Ze’s chest, Xiu had to raise his hands to circle Du Ze’s waist, like a child holding a large doll.

“Du Ze, I’m always afraid.” Xiu’s face was buried in Du Ze’s chest. His muffled voice was full of affection and a fear of loneliness. “Don’t leave me. I have only you.”

Du Ze’s hand trembled. He was afraid – being together like this, how long can it last

The Creator of the world said to him: Hurry up …

Hurry what up?

Du Ze has been speculating about the Creator God’s unfinished sentence for several days. “Hurry up” speaks of an urgency, of wanting to do something faster. There are two things that Du Ze is doing now: one is climbing the tower to witness the Moe Lord become the Supreme God, and the other is looking for information about the God of Creation and trying to make contact with the God of Creation. The latter task is closely related to the God of Creation and the God’s tone of voice was very anxious, as though he was being chased. So was the Creator asking him to hurry up and find him?

But Du Ze dares not believe in the Creator God unreservedly. He is the Final BOSS. Based on his previous actions, he is truly a professional and conscientious villain. When he takes on a mission, he finishes it properly, like how he destroyed the various races.

Du Ze thought about it until his head hurt but he still couldn’t come up with any valid conclusions. A silly, cute person felt his IQ wasn’t up to this task but he couldn’t ask the high IQ Xiu for advice, not only because of the invisible force that stopped him from speaking, but also because the words “God of Creation” was now like a minefield – just those few words might make the Moe Lord explode.

God of Creation, you are destined to walk the path of a Final BOSS because the Moe Lord has put you in his blacklist. Please allow me to make a sad expression.

After returning to the “Beautiful” plaza, Xiu continued to make the missing machine part but this time without the presence of Garl. Since that day, the gnome god has been in hiding. Du Ze still remembered the shocked expression on Garl’s face when he discovered Xiu and Du Ze’s relationship. At that time Garl seemed to want to say something, but Xiu, who was in a violent state, clasped Du Ze and stared at the gnome god as though to say “I haven’t looked for you to settle accounts.”2 Du Ze doesn’t know whether it’s because he was shocked by Xiu’s rage or because he could not accept that the only surviving member of the gnome race is gay, but Garl ran away immediately without making any protest.



Translator’s Notes:

  • Xiu did it! He actually did make a chain and tied Du Ze to him! What do you think of this turn of events?
  • Garl is really pitiful. He finally found the last gnome, only to find out that the last survivor of the gnome race won’t be getting married and having kids…

  1. The raw said “羞耻play” with play written in English. “羞耻” means “shame.” As far as I can tell, this is actually from anime/manga and is normally translated as “shame play.” However, the actual English term is “humiliation play.” That’s a real thing that people do. *cough* You might not want to Google that term. I’m pretty sure that the author, being an otaku, would prefer “shame play” so that is that I used.
  2. I don’t understand that part. I mean I know what it says but why did he say that? Is Xiu angry at Garl for the wheel of time stuff? Kinda unfair…

  1. Du Ze truly has a low IQ. Allowing such a volatile man to become so deeply attached to him, when there’s he is aware that there’s a 90% chance of him leaving us insane. No matter how they want to frame it, that chain thing is toxic and stupid and will definitely not end well. Their relationship has all the characteristics of one that’s going to have a bad ending.
    Oh well, I guess we’ll have to see at the end.

  2. A bit disappointed when Du Ze accepted the chains like that. Im all for freedom rights so couldn’t help it but feel like that. I know it has “yandere” tag on it but… Its just different when the person himself is selling off his freedom..

    *Sigh* might as well for me to take a hit while continuing reading.

  3. Chained!! Lol 😂 what if he needs to fight like back then at the beastkin trial? Whereas it was too dangerois for Du Ze to come with him~maybe he can release the chains at will lol

  4. I’m so glad I came across this novel! It’s funny and has so many hot scenes hehehe Thanks for translating it for us <3

  5. I like elastic band idea and try to compare whether DuZe or Garl faced the poorer

  6. You know I was somewhere thinking along the lines of *cough*handcuffs*cough*😌
    But this elastic ring concept is the best…..bound but giving enough space too😄
    Thanks for the chapter 😆

  7. I still don’t like this chain thing. I know why it’s done but still don’t like it. If any of my friends said their boyfriend did something like that to them, i would flip. But still the story must go on. Only hope it’s not mentioned again so i can read and ignore.

    1. You knew that that there would be this kind of possessive behavior. In the tags for this book, it plainly says male yandere. Do not complain about things that are expected. If it was a one note character, had awful characterization or wasn’t developed enough, you should complain. However, that is not the case. It is even worse when you know the charcteristics of gnomes, they are very paranoid. Of course Xiu is going to act like this, he doesn’t trust anyone other than Du Ze because everyone else betrayed him. I would be surprised if he didn’t act this way after all that has happened to him. Du Ze is the only thing holding him together. He brings him comfort and safety. He will be possessive of the person/ thing that causes these feelings. This behavior has been observed in persons who have been neglected or abused. So please think of your words before you say them. I do not want to justify his behavior but I understand why Xiu acts in this way.

    2. Lol. Why r you commenting and scolding me on sthg that happened ages ago. When i started reading this novel obvs I didn’t know he was going to be this possesive. I was able to get the possessiveness but I expressed my dislike of the physical constriction. How is that a bad thing. It’s possible to have a yandare and possesive ml without there being physical chaining. Anyway, I quickly got over it and dumped the novel but why did you have to come looking for trouble 2 years later.

  8. I have to say..
    Xiu really thought about this a lot..
    It’s not as suffocating as I thought..
    It’s more acceptable than having chains tied to Du ze. Hahaha!

    Thanks for the chap!

  9. Wow! Such a good idea Xiu! Next time when someone wants to separate you together they won’t be able to~! Even though chains are more restricting but this “ring elastic band like” concept not only gives Du Ze some space it also attach him to his hubby so they will never separate.

    Didn’t think of that one! I thought it was going to be a literal chain. Can I have a version of that ring, Xiu? I need to put on my phone so we wouldn’t be separated.

    Thank you for the update! 🙇‍♂️🙇‍♂️🙇‍♂️

  10. Don’t see that coming 😊😊😊 the chain thing , but I love how Ze Du don’t make drama about it

    Thank you for the translation

  11. I feel really bad for the gnome god….. I wonder if this is how parents feel like when their only son or daughter say they like the same sex.

    1. As Du Ze would say “I’ve already taken off my pants and this is what you show me?!”

  12. Lol no more gnome race cause Xiu loves DuZe and only wants to “play” with him and no one else. But if DuZe is restrained so close to Xiu how will Xiu fight when he will also have to protect DuZe?
    Thank you for the chapter!!!

  13. Aww…and here I was imagining fur-lined wrist and ankle cuffs, leather straps and stainless steel chains…>_____<

    Also rip gnome race lolololololol

  14. Omg its like the reverse of those marriage bracelets in “the hero suddenly proposed to me but…”
    (Which you scanlate too😁)
    Instead of clinging them together at close range the rings rubberband them together
    Can i say that i think its pretty cute…
    Also poor garl just shock after shock I hope Xiu gives the god of creation a shock too soon so the H.E. can happen

    Thank you for translating!💕

    1. Oh yeah! It is like from the “The hero suddenly proposed to me”, also doesn’t the Yandere ML has a blond hair and blue eyes. Doesn’t that make you think that he looks like the human version of Xiu? 🤣🤣🤣

  15. I think Xiu was angry that the gnome god bound him when Du Ze ran away from him, so he’s hostile to the gnome god. poor guy haha

  16. I’m not even upset he put an invisible chain on him. He also doesn’t have any qualms with it.

    Though, if itis like a different situation (i.e. hetero love story something), I would probably have mixed feelings. I startedhaving double standards now with Xiu’s Yandere factors being very adorable through my fujoshi eyes.

    I laughed about Xiu’s ever ready and waiting arms line hahaha~!

    Thank you very much for the chapter!!!!

  17. When the Moe Lord said he wants to chain Du Ze, he will really do so. There’s no doubt about it!
    I find Du Ze really pitiful. 5 or 10 meters, he should negotiates to increase the distance at least, though maybe not at the moment, he may get the opposite.
    Garl too, was pitiful indeed. He only do what he think was the best for Xiu, and was hated for it.

  18. ResidentialPsycho

    Du Ze did not assure Xiu that he would never leave him. I wonder if Xiu will notice that hint about the future.

  19. Poor Du Ze.. Its like in the story of the hero propose to something. I forgot the title.. Its just that its bracelet instead of ring. But there no chains. The hero only knows where the female protaganist is.. But i still love this.. Kyaaahh!!! XD what about if they want to take a bath.. XD moe moe moe.. XD
