Chapter 1: I have a “spoiled” halo
In the empty gray space, a cold and indifferent voice sounded.
This space was a room that was a dozen square meters wide. To be precise, it was like a large sealed box. It had no doors and windows, only the color gray could be seen. In a random yet orderly manner, it slowly floated in a certain direction.
Midair, a milky white light exuded a comforting atmosphere. It seemed to be breathing from time to time, expanding and contracting.
A tender and cheerful voice came from the light, “En.”
“Because of special reasons, time and space is in disorder. This led to some people finding out about their intended endings. They refuse to follow their original path so that they could survive. Therefore, we need to play the role of the character in order to maintain the world’s development.”
The light, or the system, was quite slow: What? So simple? You already agreed? Don’t you want to know why, or what you have to do?
Hah, he’s already a dead person. Did he still need to scheme?
A person who was unaware of the past does not need to pay attention to “people” in the future.
No one wanted to die. If there was a chance to live, why should you let go? Even if they would ask for something in exchange.
Mo Fan wanted to cast a contemptuous look at the system. However, his current situation hindered him.
If one paid attention, they could see that the young man’s figure was barely visible.
There was no color nor thickness as if he was just a layer of icing. A gentle touch could turn him into powder.
“So, let’s start the mission?” The system asked carefully.
“After entering the plane, in order for you to integrate with the original body, a small ring that has a character halo will be given to you as a prop. Whatever you do, you’re not allowed to be OOC! I am going to start the transmission. Fanfan, please endure for a while.”
He still has not figured out what the system was asking him to endure when he suddenly felt a pain in his head. In the next second, he lost consciousness.
Before giving into the darkness, Mo Fan thought leisurely: Did it call him Fanfan? Wasn’t that quite intimate.
A spacious and bright bedroom, with simple but heavy curtains that covered only half of the window frame. The bright and warm sunshine shone directly on the big gray-and-white bed.
On the thin bed laid two figures. One was a tall man that laid on his side, his face was buried in between a teenager’s shoulder and neck. His face could not be seen. A powerful long arm held the beautiful boy’s waist, hugging him.
The warm sunlight was sprinkled on the youth’s fair and delicate face. It looked tranquil and beautiful. The golden light highlighted his messy hair.
The youth’s thick and long lashes trembled gently. He wanted to open his eyes but was stopped by the glaring light. As he raised a hand over his forehead, a pair of bright and dark orbs filled with confusion slowly emerged.
“Fanfan, we have arrived in the new world~”
The voice of the system sounded out in his head. The youth, who was now Mo Fan, said a faint “En” in his mind.
Behind his back was a warm body, he could feel the rise and fall of the other’s chest. From their contact with each other, Mo Fan could easily arrive at the conclusion that the two had a sincere relationship.
At the same time, Mo Fan frowned slightly as he felt abnormalities in this body.
“Fanfan, I will transfer this world’s plot and the original owner’s memories to you.”
The world’s plot? The original owner’s memories? Mo Fan had a guess in his mind.
Something poured quickly in his brain. A huge amount of information was suddenly dumped in Mo Fan’s head. This made him feel slight pain. Suddenly, one photo after another moved frame by frame.
This process might have felt long, but, in fact, only a second has passed.
What’s his current situation? Reincarnation?
The system explained, “Whatever you’re thinking of is right. We are now in a different world. The soul of this body’s owner has been separated from the body, so this could be considered reincarnation. Our presence here is rejected by the world, so if you are found out, you will get in trouble. Therefore, you must not be OOC.”
【Didn’t you say that we were upholding the plane’s rules?】
Mo Fan blinked. The system’s words were contradicting.
【Tell me the truth.】
The system thought, this wasn’t forbidden to say, and started to talk: “This is mainly because your soul is too weak. It has to be fixed to the level of normal people in a low-level plane before you can actually start the task.”
When he recalled his transparent form, Mo Fan looked pensive.
The system can help grow my soul? What benefits will it get?
“Fanfan, our aim is the power of the world. As long as you follow the original owner’s temperament while going through the world’s plot, then we can obtain the energy.”
Mo Fan was alerted: You know what I am thinking?
“That’s because you haven’t blocked me intentionally. If you don’t want me to know about something then I won’t hear you.”
【The world’s power?】
“En, en. My ability to run and travel around worlds needs the support of the world’s forces. I don’t need much energy so the rest could be given to your soul. Without the power of the world, I would fall asleep.”
Mo Fan no longer had to probe whether the other party was telling the truth, Wasn’t its current situation worse?
After getting what he wanted to know, Mo Fan started to sort out the messy information in his head.
This body is also named Mo Fan, the young master of the Shao family. However, the original owner wasn’t the head of the Shao family’s biological son. The head lost his wife in his early years and left behind a three-year-old son. Later, when his son was older, he met Mo Fan’s mother and brought them into the Shao family.
However, the good days did not last long. When the two were about to get married, the Shao family head died because of an accident. Mo Fan’s mother died at the same time.
The car accident, naturally, was not an accident. It was caused by someone else.
At that time, the 18-year-old Shao Yuxuan provoked the covetousness of relatives that were like jackals, wolves, tigers, and panthers. It took him three years to manage the company with his outstanding ability, and at the same time send the culprit of the car accident to prison.
Even if the group of shareholders was surprised, they made Shao Yuxuan the winner.
If they followed the normal routine, Shao Yuxuan would marry and have children, then bear his own responsibilities. However, Shao Yuxuan found himself falling in love with his younger brother, Mo Fan.
When he first realized it, Shao Yuxuan ran away. However, this feeling did not fade with time. It became more and more intense. So, he calmed down and treated Mo Fan increasingly well, but never told the other party.
If it was like this from the beginning to end, Mo Fan probably wouldn’t have known that the person who grew up with him liked him.
In the end, a certain Shao Yuxuan got drunk and forcibly hugged Mo Fan. After that, the two had a cold war. Mo Fan unexpectedly became a victim of drug overdose and died.
All Mo Fan had to do was act in character.
“In the end, I have to go through everything he experienced?”
“The system has a protective mechanism that would pull Fanfan away before that. There is no need for you to worry about feeling the pain the original owner experienced.”
“En.” Thinking about that scenario, Mo Fan had the impulse to tear the other apart.
It seemed that he was at the time after the two got drunk?
This kind of soreness, and the strange feeling he could feel from his behind, it was as if he experienced it personally.
Mo Fan’s expression was strange. The system couldn’t help but feel guilty and say, “Fanfan, I’m sorry that you have to experience this.”
【You can’t choose when I will enter the world?】
Mo Fan felt his head hurt. Anyway, they should fix the situation first.
【What do I need to do now?】
“After finding out that he was with the male protagonist, he was furious and disgusted. Fanfan, just act like this and everything will be fine.”
“Fanfan, you have a “pampering” halo in this world, oh. Add oil!”
Pampering? Why did he feel that this so-called halo was a pit? Mo Fan felt his headache worsen.
【The role of the halo?】
“Character halos can change Fanfan’s personality. When your performance is lacking, it would complement your original emotion. It is a prop just for Fanfan, oh~”
With his memories not yet forming properly, Mo Fan had no feelings for both men and women. What made him uncomfortable was eaten up. Although it was finished by the time he arrived, he still had to bear the aftermath.”
“Fanfan, the male protagonist woke up.”
Mo Fan turned around and saw that the man had a hangover, his eyes filled with confusion.
Last night was Xiao Fan’s coming-of-age ceremony. Shao Yuxuan drank a little too much. He did not know whether Xiao Fan got drunk too or not…
Shao Yuxuan felt a little intoxicated when he thought of his dream last night. He had been dreaming of this for two years now but never had it brought him such a feeling.
As his sight focused, Shao Yuxuan’s pupils contracted when he saw the scene in front of him.
The teenager was sitting beside him, his white tender skin… What? Shao Yuxuan had no time to daydream. He has never feared anything but at this moment, his heart was filled with dread.
Disgust and shock filled the eyes of the youth… These emotions made Shao Yuxuan’s heart ache. He did not dare look at his eyes.
How could he do something that hurt him?! He clearly liked him so much! He wished that he could kiss him, hold his hand, but couldn’t. How come!
“Shao Yuxuan, you are disgusting.”
The teenager’s voice was filled with disgust. Shao Yuxuan sat up and tried to hold the teenager’s shoulder to explain, “Xiao Fan, I…”
“Don’t touch me!”
Shao Yuxuan was stopped by this loud voice.
Mo Fan couldn’t do anything and had to resort to shouting.
“Mo Fan, I’m sorry. I was drunk. I did not know that this would happen. I didn’t mean it.” Shao Yuxuan had a fantasy in his heart. Maybe Xiao Fan didn’t know. He wouldn’t realize it… However, Mo Fan’s next words shattered his hopes.
“Heh,” Mo Fan sneered, “Did the sentence “Xiao Fan, I love you.” that I hear was fake?”
Shao Yuxuan’s body froze, his face showed a bewildered expression.
“Xiao Fan, I do love you, but I did not want to do this. Seeing you is enough for me.”
Shao Yuxuan’s confession did not arouse Mo Fan’s sympathy. The disgust on his face deepened.
The disgust and hate in the other’s eyes were so clear, Shao Yuxuan didn’t dare speak.
“I don’t want to see you, get out!”
This agitation caused his body pain. Still, Mo Fan continued to raise his finger stiffly. Due to anger, his pale face flushed red.
“Careful. I’ll leave now, so stop being angry.” Shao Yuxuan watched Mo Fan’s complex and strange expression. He wanted to comfort him but was afraid to add fuel to the fire.
After picking up his trousers on the ground and putting them on, he left the room. Shao Yuxuan was totally unaware that there was something wrong with being chased out of his own room.
“Fanfan,” The system’s voice sounded out, “You’re doing very well.”
The strong emotions on Mo Fan’s face suddenly disappeared. His eyes were eerily calm.
The situation has been dealt with.
To be in such a body, he really was angry. Mo Fan just used the situation as pretext to make a fuss.
When Mo Fan tried to leave the bed, his limp and painful legs almost gave out on him, causing him to fall over. Mo Fan’s face was black.
During the difficult trek to the bathroom, Mo Fan did not look at the traces scattered around his body on purpose and gave himself a bath.
“Fanfan…” The system’s voice sounded a little cautious, “That… If you don’t clean that, you’ll get sick.”
【What?】Mo Fan could not understand.
“Your… behind… It has to be cleaned up or you’ll get have a fever…” The system’s voice grew smaller and smaller as Mo Fan’s expression became uglier.
System: Wuwuwu, this is all for Fanfan. Even if Mo Fan’s face turns black, it still has to be cleaned up!
The system continued to whisper, “Fanfan, whatever is inside… It has to be washed out…”
Mo Fan raised his eyebrows, “Do you think the original owner knows how to do this?”
The system shook his head.
【Then leave it there.】
The original owner of the body was straight. Since he was furious, he obviously won’t touch that place or let anyone else do so. In his mind, he was disgusted with that area. If he wasn’t feeling uncomfortable, then he would have left straight away.
When he opened the closet, a set of ironed suits were neatly arranged in it. Obviously, this was not the former owner’s style.
It was just like that man’s.
【Is this Shao Yuxuan’s room?】
“En. Fanfan, your room is next door.”
After putting on a bathrobe, Mo Fan opened the door.
Shao Yuxuan was outside the room when Mo Fan went outside. His eyes flashed with an unreadable emotion. Mo Fan did not even look at the side, he opened the door and went inside the other room. He laid on the bed, looking for a comfortable position.
He felt too uncomfortable.
The system was worried, “Fanfan, you’ll get a fever if you stay like this.”
【It’s okay, let me sleep.】
The system wanted to speak but stopped. It watched Mo Fan lay on the bed with his eyes closed due to tiredness.
Shao Yuxuan went back to his room, changed his clothes, then returned to knock at the door. The person inside did not respond, just as expected.
“Xiao Fan, are you hungry? I’m going to cook for you. I don’t mind if you are angry with me, but you aren’t allowed to be hungry because of this.”
After a while, there was still no movement inside. Shao Yuxuan went downstairs dimly.
The system, who was watching Mo Fan sleep: ……
An hour later, Shao Yuxuan had cooked porridge with him, “Xiao Fan, I cooked porridge for you. I’m going to leave it outside the door. If you feel hungry, eat it, alright?”
Just like before. Silence.
“I’ll leave the porridge here.”
Mo Fan did not want to see him, Shao Yuxuan could understand that. However, right now, it was already dark and the other party still has not made any movements. It was unusual.
The porridge he left at noon became cold and sticky. Shao Yuxuan, who was holding the dinner that he made for the youth, became worried: “Xiao Fan? Are you there? You didn’t eat this afternoon, you must be hungry. Come out and have some food. I’ll put this here and leave at once. You don’t have to worry about seeing me.”
A whole afternoon has passed, Shao Yuxuan, who panicked after seeing their closeness, has already calmed down.
If Xiao Fan was angry, this would not be his normal reaction. He would only lose his temper, but not ignore him like this.
Shao Yuxuan’s heart tightened up as he thought of the youth’s situation on the other side.
Did something happen to Xiao Fan?
“Xiao Fan? Are you in there? If you don’t talk, then I’m coming in.”
Shao Yuxuan listened attentively. There was no movement.
Xiao Fan must have gotten in trouble.
Worried, Shao Yuxuan quickly went into the study room and took out a key. He unlocked the door.
A slender figure slept on the bed quietly. This tugged at Shao Yuxuan’s heartstrings.
Mo Fan liked to cover himself with the quilt when sleeping. Shao Yuxuan watched as the teen refused to speak. He held a corner of the quilt and pulled it down.
The young man’s face was red and covered with sweat.
Shao Yuxuan wanted to give himself a slap.
Obviously, under this kind of situation, Xiao Fan would feel unwell. Why didn’t he pay more attention to him?
Shao Yuxuan has lived for more than twenty years. He did not panic when his father remarried nor when his parents died. It was only at this moment, when he saw Mo Fan’s uncomfortable expression, did he feel helplessness.
Shao Yuxuan was about to call their family doctor when he remembered Mo Fan’s reaction.
Xiao Fan certainly wouldn’t want others to know about what happened, even if it was a doctor loyal to their family.
“Xiao Fan, let’s get up and have a bath, okay?”
Shao Yuxuan was not a young child who was unaware about everything. Even if he did not expect a future for the two of them, he still understood some things about it.
He didn’t use any protective measures last night, so that must have remained inside. Xiao Fan was still young and didn’t know about these things, so he caught a fever. Moreover, he asked the other for several more rounds. Xiao Fan could have been injured.
He thought it was a dream. A dream that felt too real. He could not control himself and went too far.
Hearing Shao Yuxuan’s gentle voice, the teenager frowned tightly and burrowed himself in the quilt deeper.
“Xiao Fan? You have to take a bath even if it’s difficult. Can I bring you there?”
Shao Yuxuan gently appeased the boy. When he leaned over and picked him up, Mo Fan did not struggle and even took the initiative to snuggle up in his arms.
Shao Yuxuan’s heart ached. Before the incident last night, the two of them had been this close.
Xiao Fan was very good. He would act spoiled and curry favor with him whenever he made a mistake. Although he always argued with him, in Shao Yuxuan’s view, it was all because of the other’s short temper. He just had to coax him a little. Really cute.
When Xiao Fan was really happy, he would jump in his arms and hug him like this. Acting spoiled in his arms.
Shao Yuxuan brought him into the bathtub and removed his clothes.
The youth’s skin was very tender. Marks would appear even with just a little force. Yesterday, he was too excited and left red marks over his body.
At this moment, Shao Yuxuan didn’t get distracted. All he felt was pity for the boy. He cleaned him carefully.
There were red marks but no broken and bleeding skin.
Shao Yuxuan was relieved.
The teenager struggled slightly when he was applying medicine, “Stop… Not there… It hurts…”
Shao Yuxuan pulled himself away from his thoughts and moved faster.
He wiped the water left on the youth’s body and brought him back to the bed.
Shao Yuxuan took out the antipyretic medicine from the medicine box and made the teenager drink it. He cooled him down nonstop.
Shao Yuxuan did not dare sleep. Every thirty minutes, he would measure the youth’s temperature. His fever only subsided when it was midnight.
Even so, Shao Yuxuan did not relax. He stayed until early morning. Looking at the time, he left.
Xiao Fan definitely would not want to see him.
When Mo Fan woke up, he did not feel relaxed. He actually felt more tired.
【System, what happened to me?】
“Fanfan, you caught a fever. The male protagonist took care of you the whole night.”
【Where is he now?】
“He left this morning. He probably thought that you wouldn’t want to see him.”
Mo Fan got absorbed in his thoughts.
Mo Fan raised his hand and brought it to his belly. He said sullenly, “I’m hungry.”
The system was a little worried, “Anyone who hasn’t eaten the whole day would naturally be hungry. The protagonist should have prepared some breakfast for you. Go and eat it.”
【Let’s eat out.】
System: Ah?? You still want to leave? You’ll have to endure your hunger for a while.
Mo Fan put on his clothes and went downstairs. He ignored the man that greeted him and his prepared breakfast. Without looking at anyone in the eye, he took a car key and went out the door. This was all taken in by Shao Yuxuan’s wistful eyes.
In the garage, a red Ferrari lit up. It was Shao Yuxuan’s gift for Mo Fan that night.
Mo Fan learned how to drive when he was 16 years old. He had no car and has been pestering Shao Yuxuan to buy him one. Shao Yuxuan did not fulfill this wish until he turned into an adult. He even started with a sports car that was worth millions.
Although he lost his parents early, Mo Fan has been growing up under Shao Yuxuan’s care and was carefree. In school, he was even famously called a baby. Under Shao Yuxuan’s care, no one dared to look down on the Shao family’s young master even if he had a different surname.
Mo Fan stopped at the door of a bar.
The system was curious, “Fanfan, what are you planning to do in a bar? They don’t serve breakfast here.”
Mo Fan ignored his question and walked right in.
Since it was morning, the bar was currently closing. When a delicate looking teenager drove over using a sports car, the person did not dare neglect him and asked: “This young master… Do you need anything?”
Mo Fan’s tone sounded strange and mocking, “This bar is open and you’re asking a guest if they need anything?”
The manager did not know the other’s identity so he didn’t dare offend him. He replied with a pleasant smile on his face, “Young master, our bar is just about to close. Why don’t you visit later? We’ll treat you well.”
Mo Fan was ungrateful and said brutally, “Guests can come whenever they want to. From now on, I’ll come to this place.”
When the manager saw that Mo Fan was determined to go inside the bar. He already realized that he must be a rich person. Looking at the people behind him, he said: “Okay, okay, okay! Young master, please come in.”
Since the bar was about to close, the musicians were currently fixing their things. The manager hurriedly stopped them and asked them to continue to perform.
Mo Fan: “I’m hungry. Prepare some breakfast for me.”
They weren’t a breakfast shop.
That was what the manager thought, but he said: “What does this young master want to eat?”
Mo Fan: “Anything.”
Seeing that someone was making things difficult for the manager, a youth that was about the same age as Mo Fan came over. The manager gave a sigh of relief, “Little Xu.”
Xu Wei was the bar owner’s younger brother. He sometimes helped manage the bar. Luckily, he came here to have fun. He saw the manager invite someone in.
