Yin Xu Dong choked. He coughed violently for a while before his flushed, “Cough cough, Xuan Xuan… are you joking?”
Zhuo Xiao Xuan frowned, “Do I look that bored?”♢ I AM A KILLER, CHAPTER 68 is hosted at ZHAN LAN TRANSLATIONS♢
It’s because you’re not that’s why the things you say are freaking scary! Yin Xu Dong wailed mentally before saying to Zhuo Xiao Xuan: “We haven’t even reached the legal age to get married yet, we’re still children who aren’t completely grown up, it’s a little too early to get married now.”
Zhuo Xiao Xuan continued frowning, “At where I’m from, people our ages already have two to three kids.”
“Where you’re from? I’m from B City as well, I didn’t see it though?” Yin Xu Dong scratched his head as he asked dubiously.
Zhuo Xiao Xuan firmed her expression, “So you’re trying to skip out on marrying me and trying to change the conversation?!”
“No, no, I don’t mean that. Look even if I agreed, our parents won’t agree no?” When he saw Zhuo Xiao Xuan showing early symptoms of her anger boiling, Yin Xu Dong immediately explained.
Zhuo Xiao Xuan contemplated for a bit. It made sense; marriage is something their parents and the matchmaker had to agree to. Though her parents were long dead, Yin Xu Dong’s parents were still alive and healthy. She was able to make her own decisions but he did not have such liberty.
“Fine, I’ll persuade your parents then.” IAAK IS HOSTED @ ZHANLAN TL
Yin Xu Dong fell off his bed. Was she not going to be satisfied if she didn’t give him a heart attack with her words today? She didn’t look like she was that desperate of a person either, what’s up with her today? Zhuo Xiao Xuan was apparently turning to leave and going to look for his parents. He climbed up with difficulty and grabbed hold of her. Just look at her, how the heck did she look like she was asking for his hand in marriage? She looked like a killer who was going to head out for a massacre! If she shocked his parents into a daze, she might accidentally mistake their astonishment as disapproval. If something like that happened, then his parents’ necks were at risk!
“It’s all about freedom of rights nowadays no, liberty to love and marry; let’s sit down and think over our future first. It’s hard for my parents to understand what we youngsters are thinking nowadays, so let’s not trouble them about our matters.” Yin Xu Dong dragged Zhuo Xiao Xuan back and sat her down beside him on the mat, “did you get injured this time?”
“No.” Zhuo Xiao Xuan leant against Yin Xu Dong’s shoulders, closing her eyes. Z L T
Yin Xu Dong buried his head in the crook of her neck, rubbing against her, saying glumly: “When are you going to stop doing all these dangerous stuff?”♢ I AM A KILLER, CHAPTER 68 is hosted at ZHAN LANN ♢
“I don’t know.” Placing aside what’s been preoccupying her for the longest of times, Z organisation’s not someplace she was able quit just because she wanted to; she had no choice.
“Oh…” he really didn’t want her taking on such dangerous jobs in the future.
“When are we getting married.”
Yin Xu Dong was rendered speechless. Was that the only thing she’s concerned about? “You, want to get married immediately?”
“…no.” She’d thought that there would be a fifty percent chance that she would not be able to make it alive since she bumped into You Ming on her mission this time. Their re-encounter this time had unraveled her grudge. Since she was able to remain here peacefully, she should get married. Girls coming of age, reaching fifteen, were able to get married. She was already considered an old lass with her current age. In her previous life, she was still killing to survive in the organisation; the environment she was in wasn’t one where she could pay heed to marriage matters. She transmigrated into this world when she was twenty two, and she lived four five years more in this world, so her mental age was technically that of an old, old women aged twenty six to seven. Now that she’s thought of it, wasn’t Yin Xu Dong a little too young for her? Was this considering a old flower chomping on a young cattle*?
* the usual proverb is 老牛啃能草 = old cattle chomping on young grass= an old man dating a young girl; Zhuo Xiao Xuan uses 老花啃嫩牛 = old flower (referring to a female i.e. herself) chomping on young cattle to express how opposite her situation was.
As Zhuo Xiao Xuan thought about that, she suddenly felt all weird. “If only you were eight or ten years older.”
Yin Xu Dong was extremely speechless when he heard that. So it turns out Xuan Xuan was an uncle-con?! Was every loli dreaming of an old uncle as their partner?! He minced his lips: “What’s so great about uncles, they’re old and lifeless! You won’t share the same interests! Nor the same language! Young people should stay with young people!”
Zhuo Xiao Xuan curled her lips in disdain. Her instinctive reaction immediately had Yin Xu Dong feeling that his status as her fiance was very threatened. He decided that he shall grow a moustache from today onwards!!! Even if he wasn’t as old as an uncle, he could at least look like an uncle right!!!♢ I AM A KILLER, CHAPTER 68 is hosted at ZHAN LANN ♢
Yin Xu Dong clenched his teeth and made a decision. “Xuan Xuan, let’s get engaged!”
“Engaged?” Zhuo Xiao Xuan contemplated, it probably meant the same thing as being betrothed to someone right.
“Yes! Let’s get engaged first. Look, we’re all still military school students, so we can’t get married according to the rules, so let’s get engaged first. It’s not too late to get our marriage license after we graduate right? All that matters is that we see our engagement as a marriage instead, what do you think?” Yin Xu Dong carefully observed Zhuo Xiao Xuan’s change in expression. He must knock things out first to cut off all possibility of her getting lured away by some old uncle.
Zhuo Xiao Xuan nodded her head. “That’s fine too.” She was thinking of just settling their marriage matters first even if Yin Xu Dong’s parents were against the idea. If possible, she was quite for the idea of instigating Yin Xu Dong to elope with her, but he definitely wouldn’t agree to such a suggestion, so forget it.
During her winter break, Zhuo Xiao Xuan went out for a few more missions. It was only nearing the start of the term did Z organisation stop sending her out on missions. Every time she went over to Yin Xu Dong’s place when she had time, she’d be forced to drink his blood-nourishing soup; he said that he had to help her patch up the blood she’d lost every time she got hurt, so she had to drink more of this. Unbeknownst to Yin Xu Dong was his poor mother’s glum, conflicted thoughts about the entire situation. Even if she had a daughter, her daughter wouldn’t need to drink so much soup! And what’s with him cooping up in his room drinking the soup anyway? What kind of weird habit was this?
When school started again, they returned to school and resumed attending the mundane cycle of lessons and training. Zhuo Xiao Xuan would head over to Yin Xu Dong’s school occasionally to meet him. After which, they would bump into the relentless Liu Ting. Her ability to discover them was almost akin to that of a scouting soldier; no matter where Zhuo Xiao Xuan and Yin Xu Dong hid, they would always be found by her. However, the target of her relentlessness was no longer the same now—she was hooking on to Zhuo Xiao Xuan rather in an attempt to find out more about Xie Sheng Ya. Though Zhuo Xiao Xuan dumped her in Xie Sheng Ya’s direction in an attempt finish off her love rival, Zhuo Xiao Xuan ultimately still ended up being bugged by Liu Ting. In the end when she got annoyed by Liu Ting, she threatened Xie Sheng Ya murderously when she returned to her school and had him to settle his troublesome woman himself.
Other than Zhuo Xiao Xuan needing to head out occasionally for missions—something Yin Xu Dong was unable to keep a peace of mind about—the two of their lives were relatively calm. Zhuo Xiao Xuan would occasionally bother herself with the lovestruck Yin Xu Dong by her side. As for all of Zhuo Xiao Xuan’s pursuers around her, Yin Xu Dong had his hands tied. Though W Military College wasn’t much larger than Military Meds College, their rules were a lot stricter, so it was very hard for him to enter her school. Hence, it’s Zhuo Xiao Xuan who head over to his Military Meds College to look for him usually.
If we’re talking about unforeseen events happening, then there was that once Yin Xu Dong was called out by someone to meet up outside. Yin Xu Dong hadn’t been particularly keen about meeting someone so sneakily, but that person told him: “I know Zhuo Xiao Xuan. Let’s meet.”
He froze. Was this his love rival trying to scare him off?! Argh! This bastard’s lookin’ down on him huh! He’s gonna show him what he’s got so that bastard’ll know he ain’t someone he can provoke. Yin Xu Dong sharpened his surgery knives, the scalpels flashing.
When he finally met the person, his first reaction was: Fvck! So the legendary uncle makes his appearance!
In the face of this unprecedented uncle of a love rival, Yin Xu Dong stared him up and down. This uncle love rival—as expected—was pretty legit; he was completely unruffled even under Yin Xu Dong’s beaming x-ray gazes.
Yin Xu Dong clenched his teeth. Calm his ass! You think you can look down on people just cuz you’re an uncle? He plopped down in the seat across the uncle, “What is it you’re looking for me for?!”
“Frankly, you’re not really a good fit for her.” The uncle’s imposing gaze swept in Yin Xu Dong’s direction as he said slowly.
Not really a good fit my foot! Yin Xu Dong was so enraged he almost spat blood. Just as he was about to fork out his surgery scalpels and KO this strange uncle, “Fvck! Who the hell are you even? It’s none of your business if we match or not! Ohhh, I know, you’re here because you’re jealous huh? Didn’t manage to get what you wanted so you’re here to talk shit and be salty, do you think we’ll break up just because of the things you say? Uncle! You should just retire and enjoy the rest of your years while you can!”
The uncle shook his head. “Really don’t get why she’d chose to stay with you.”
His pitiful expression had Yin Xu Dong even madder. He wasn’t someone to take things as they were; he was after all a doctor-to-be who’d dictate life and death by wielding his surgical knives. Squinting, he smiled falsely: “That’s because she’s got good taste while you’re blinded by your eye crusts!” This blasted uncle, was he here to criticise him? He shouldn’t have came. If he were to make his exit now, he’d be seen as weak and useless, and he’d be throwing Xuan Xuan’s face, so he must go all-out, and shoo this uncle back to where he came from! And see if he’s got the guts again to come provoking him! ♢ I AM A KILLER, CHAPTER 68 is hosted at ZHAN LANN ♢
“Forget it, it’s her choice anyway. Lad, you get it stamped in your head to treat her good. The day you hurt her feelings will be the day of your doom.” The uncle stared at Yin Xu Dong sharply, his gaze brewing murderously.
Pity his murderous aura didn’t take much effect on Yin Xu Dong. Rather, Yin Xu Dong was completely pissed about this uncle words instead, the fvck! Who the hell did he think he was?! What’s with the righteousness tone in his words, it made things seem as though he was Xuan Xuan… guy?! He can go fvck himself!
“Uncle, I believe you (polite) might have gotten something wrong? I don’t think you (polite) are in the position to say that! Moreover, you can chop off that thought off yours, Xuan Xuan and I are going to be together till were old and grey, we’ll be coming to visit you again when we’re an old grandpa and an old grandma couple with out grandson, and great-grandson. Do you (polite) have another more to say? If not, I’ll be heading back, I still have to meet Xuan Xuan after this!” Yin Xu Dong sprouted the honorific “you”* one after another. Humph, yes he’s out to piss this uncle off.
* the term used is 您老 = you (polite, old); basically referring to you (but politely) and making it known that the other party you’re speaking to is old (this is somewhat common when (grand)sons and (grand)daughters are talking to their elder (grand)parents)
“Nothing else, you can go.” Z L T
Yin Xu Dong left, a smile of victory adorning his lips. You Ming sat quietly where he was, watching Yin Xu Dong’s diminishing silhouette as he whispered: “Xiao Ye, I hope he’ll make you happy.”
When Yin Xu Dong saw Zhuo Xiao Xuan, he went up gleefully to give her a hug before giving her a kiss. Hehe, Xuan Xuan was his, and only his, that uncle, don’t you ever think of getting her from me.
Zhuo Xiao Xuan pushed away Yin Xu Dong’s head that was inching her way. Looking at that dumb smile on his face, she asked cooly: “What happened?”
“Nothing. Xuan Xuan, we’re graduating in a year.”
“Enh.” IAAK IS HOSTED @ ZHANLAN TL
“Let’s get married immediately after we graduate.”
