PUP Volume 3 Chapter 10

Translator: Piper Panda

Editor: Kleep

TLC: Sen

Earl Duin’s full name was Andre Duin, and his daughter, Lori Duin, was the child of the unfortunate first Countess.

Suji, who just learned this matter, was shocked for a long time and she could not even close her mouth. It turned out that men could be together with other men.

Xi Wei and Zeno were much calmer. One had been in the filth of Ye Sa City and had seen many abnormal situations over the years. The other one was very knowledgeable and lived in modern times. It was nothing to make a big fuss over.

The feeling of worship in Suji’s heart rose to the next level. It was no wonder they were worthy of being called the master and the little master!

Originally, Zeno also felt that his protagonist’s behaviour and actions were not appropriate, but after knowing all the facts, he could not help but feel that Earl Duin deserved it.

It was not enough that he had harmed one innocent woman. He actually proceeded to set up a huge blind date, and planned to hurt a second.

In the blink of an eye, the banquet was already halfway over. All the beautiful people present were somewhat nervous, and the Earl had not even appeared yet.

Just as Zeno whimsically felt that the Earl found his conscience and intended to cancel this ridiculous act,  a team of servants came andthat wasn’t Earl Duin in the back, was it?

Zeno shot him a look of disappointment and gave him the title of scum.

“Scum” was unaware of that. He looked like his usual elegant and noble self standing on the stage, and raised his hand to signal everyone to be quiet.

Honestly though, the genes of Earl Duin were very good. He was young and very handsome, that was, if you could ignore what he was currently doing.

The beautiful women in the audience all showed their excitement. Most of them came for the status and wealth of a Countess. They did not expect that the appearance of the Earl was so handsome.

This was simply a huge benefit.

Earl Duin spoke up, “Thank you to all you beautiful ladies for taking the time to participate in this banquet. I am very grateful. I believe everyone knows that I need a kind and beautiful woman to take care of my daughter. She is a poor child and worthy of obtaining the best of everything.”

The girls in the audience had all shown their sympathy and understanding in a timely manner, like they were all good wives and good mothers.

The Earl opened again, this time he with amazing news, “After some observation, I have chosen the most suitable lady. Other than this, the rest of the ladies can get a gift as a courtesy from me, I am very sorry to bother you with coming here.”

Everyone was shocked. Did the Earl spend all that time hiding in the dark to observe them?

When they thought about it, some people were annoyed, while others were proud. The annoyance in those people was too obvious, while the ones that were proud were more restrained.

Under the intense gazes of everyone, the Earl did not continue speaking on the stage. Instead, he walked down the stage with some urgency. Everyone’s eyes followed his footsteps to see which person obtained the great honor.

Finally the Earl stopped, and the person he stopped in front of was Xi Wei.

Xi Wei still had no expression, giving off the impression that this result was not too unexpected. He was very calm.

Andre planted both feet in the same place and, hiding his worries, he once again revealed a confident and charming smile. Shocking all those present, he kneeled on one knee, while the attendant offered a wooden box at the same time, and the Earl took the wooden box and raised it. In front of Xi Wei, he opened his eyes and with them shining, said, “Beautiful lady. Please accept my, Andre’s proposal to become the new Countess.”

Zeno’s mind was a complete mess. The protagonist was being proposed to by a man!

Readers, do not throw rotten eggs1!

The author was not guilty. Is your book review area okay?!

Though they should have thought of this kind of result when they were busy getting done up as women, just thinking about it compared to experiencing the full impact of reality were nowhere near close to being the same!

Zeno’s mind went blank, as he looked at Earl Duin’s hateful smile. This brain-dead fan, whose whole being was dedicated to the protagonist, nearly could not keep himself in check and almost rushed up to kick the other man down.

Then stomp on you a few more times while you’re on the ground!!

Was my family’s protagonist someone a vulgar person like you could defile?!

Nevertheless, he still had common sense. He understood the consequences of acting like this, so he could only glare at Andre.

In the wooden box, a fist-sized amber was lying in it, wrapped in a treasure that made countless people crazyYulan Water Magnolia.

Suji and Zeno were the sisters of the future Countess, so they stayed in the Earl’s House with Xi Wei.

Andre was happily preparing for the wedding.

It appeared as if he was completely happy to take care of his wedding to this ‘woman’.

Zeno was very confused, was the news that Suji got fake? Otherwise, how could the Count of Duin be so happy with a heterosexual marriage?

Or, had Andre long seen through the real gender of Xi Wei? It seemed that only the Earl himself knew.

While Zeno was uneasy, Andre came on time every day with Lori Duin.

Little Lori was not tired of chasing ‘mother’ Xi Wei every day, and did not seem care about the protagonist’s cold face.

Zeno’s heart was uncomfortable. If Earl Duin was not a homosexual, how come he did not want the stunning beauty, Suji? Why did he have to like the protagonist!?

There was also that little tot. You, yes you, who was your mother, that is my Baba!

This reader simply became a gunpowder barrel that exploded.

Achoo! Xi Wei sneezed, and Suji looked worriedly out the window. She could see a glimpse of a person’s shadow that was looking around stealthily, and unable to bear it anymore she said, “Master, is it okay to let the little master stay out there all the time?”

Xi Wei shook a medicine bottle with a crystal clear lilac liquid inside and asked instead, “Is this done?”

Suji dared not lie, “Yes master, the Yulan Water Magnolia was real. As long as he drinks this bottle of alchemic medication, the magic and mental strength of the little master will completely recover, without any after effects.”

Xi Wei nodded, and with his ice-knife-like sight he passed over the neck of Suji. The maid trembled, she knew that this was the master’s warning to her. If Suji dared to lie, the consequences were self-evident.

Despite this, Suji secretly made a decision. When she made the medicine, she retained the taste of the Water Magnolia, only dispelling the aroma so that others could not smell it. Only the one who drank it would discover it.

Master, Suji can only help you to here.

Zeno was standing guard. He always felt that the Earl was bad. He had to guard Xi Wei, lest Andre do anything to him.

At that time, Xi Wei opened the door. He still wore his light-colored dress. The protagonist’s acting was superb. He looked just like an icy beauty. He held a cup in his hand, walked over to Zeno and handed it over, “It’s hot, drink some water.”

Zeno felt moved to the point that he did not even look at it and just took a drink.

Then, he tasted a familiar flavor. When Andre was proposing marriage, the smell in the box was exactly the same. It was the Yulan Water Magnolia.

Zeno’s eyes widened, but he could not say anything before he fainted.

Xi Wei had been prepared and reached out to catch him.

Putting him on his shoulders, he went to go back into the house.

“Xi Wei,” a shout came.

Xi Wei turned his head and looked impatiently at this uninvited guest, Earl Duin.

The strange posture of Xi Wei caught the attention of the Earl, “What happened to your sister?”

“Heat stroke.”

“Then, would you like me to find a doctor to take a look at her?”

“No need.”

Earl Duin was a little embarrassed, he could not find the right words. He had never tried this hard to curry favor before. The lady who accepted his proposal was always so cold, but surprisingly his majestic earlship didn’t feel a hint of anger..

Taking a deep breath, Earl Duin seriously said, “Xi Wei, I have something to tell you, do you have time?”

Xi Wei finally gave him a glance, “Five minutes.”

Andre was full of joy and shortened what he was going to say, “Xi Wei, I have always thought that I am different from others, and before I met you I…I really liked men. I tried to be good to Lori’s mother, but I couldn’t fall in love. She, I was the cause of her death, but after meeting you, I realized that I can also like women, thank you Xi Wei.”

Xi Wei was staring at him strangely, Earl Duin’s hands were sweating, nervously, waiting for his sweetheart’s judgment.

Then Xi Wei extended his hand to grip the hand of Earl Duin. Duin was very excited. He felt that his sweetheart accepted his feelings.

Then Xi Wei put Earl Duin’s hand on to Xi Wei’s chest and pressed it up.

A vast stretch of flat land!

Earl Duin was dumbstruck, standing in the same place while his soul left him. That night he kept turning over and over in his sleep, unable to get even a wink.

After throwing this large bomb, Xi Wei threw Zeno on to his bed. He took off his clothes, and covered him with thin blanket. Then laid naturally beside him, his heart calm.

The next day, Andre, with a pair of panda eyes2, knocked on Xi We’s door.

“Xi Wei, I’ve thought it through, even though you are a man, I’ll take it, since the goddess destined me to only like the same-sex, and since that person is you, as long as you are willing, Lori will be our daughter, you will be my wife!”

Suji had just gotten out of bed, and when she walked out the door, she heard such a confession. She could not help but clean her ears. Her first reaction was Oh no, we’ve been exposed!, but the second reaction…The Earl really fell in love with my master?

Her beautiful face paled in her panic. The confession that Earl Duin said would move an individual to tears, but Xi Wei was not an ordinary individual, he just nodded in understanding.

Then he thought in his heart, I can’t stay here any longer.

Hehehe…. I got caught up reading some absolutely amazing BL novels… and mangas… But here is the next chapter! If you guys are tired waiting I can recommend some really good ones (¬‿¬).

I saw this other translator do a translator’s corner with the characters in their book, so I thought I would try.

Piper: Hello!

Zeno: Who’s speaking!

Xi Wei: Looks around warily while protecting Zeno from the strange noise

Piper: o(╥﹏╥)o Don’t be scared I’m just translating your book…

Zeno: Translating.. book?… Wait does that mean my existence is affecting the novel!?! Is everyone reading all of my mistakes?! Even foreigners!? Orz

Piper: Ya… maybe trying to talk to you guys wasn’t that great of an idea…

Zeno: Sitting on the floor thinking about all he did that changed the course of the novel (ಥ﹏ಥ)

Xi Wei: -_- …. What’s going on….

<– Previous Chapter

–> Next Chapter

  1. The readers would be raging since “Curse” was not supposed to be a BL novel. 
  2. sleep deprived = dark circles = panda eyes, being punched in the eyes also means black eyes which can be called panda eyes. Yay Pandas!

    1. Currently I’m reading Earth Online, it is a strategic novel with a very slow romance the MC and ML don’t even meet until like chapter 34(P.S. Really long chapters that get updated daily). Let Me Tease You is a transmigration novel which is pretty funny (And completed). Laws of the Other World doesn’t have many chapters out currently, but it is VERY good, and also easy to read through google translate, but it’s a unique novel where MC travels to another dimension, kinda reminds me of Stanger Things at first, then feels more wondrous and world exploring, kinda a slow romance though. I also got cought up on a manhwa called Love is an Illusion, it’s a Omegaverse that I binge read in one night, and has great characters, you will hate the characters one chapter then better understand/ like them the next, but it’s a bit on the smutty side just a heads up. Waiting For You Online is a cute gaming one with a slow romance. Palace of The Twelve Sacred Beasts is a heavily smutty/rapey one that I quite enjoy, but if you don’t like rape, I warn, don’t read… It’s Actually Not Easy Wanting to be a Second Male Lead has probably been dropped, but it’s like RAAS and QWFOD but with a very innocent and ignorant MC, and after PUP I was thinking of picking this one up again. And another like QWFOD is Heroic Death System, which is my all time fav out of the QWFOD type novels. there should be at least one of those that you guys haven’t read before XD. Just make sure you keep coming back here for updates, or else I might get in trouble with Kleep for stealing her readers (Probably not she’s nice =D)

      1. I’ve checked them out. ^_^
        Most of them have been sitting on my reading list already, and Laws of the Other World is truly just golden I can’t wait for the ML to grow up ascsgshj. Maybe I’ll try MTLing it, do you have any recommended MTL site?
        I’ve been eyeing Earth Online for quite some time too, I’m hooked to novels with modern setting lately since it doesn’t require much thinking 😂

        I’m really loving your recommendations! Thanks a bunch! ❤
        Maybe you should make a page for a list of your recommendations if you don’t mind ~

      2. If you go to any novel updates page the alternate names part should have the Chinese name. If you google that you’ll find what you seek. Danmeila or ck101 is usually a good bet.

        Also keep in mind that EO is actually quite a thinker, but you don’t necessarily have to do the thinking 😉.

        I’ll chat with Piper about putting up a rec page.

  2. Thank you for the update !
    I kinda don’t like the Earl for what he did to his wife and now daughter , but he is part of the BL couples and is a character of a book , he should have flaws, so I forgive him. BUT DON’T YOU DARE COURT OUR PROTAGONIST! He is exclusively reserved for his loyal fan ! And if the loyal fan -His Highness Zeno , doesn’t like him, he shouldn’t be in their presence *Humph*

  4. Waah! Thank you so much for this! You unknowingly gave me a present for my birthday 😂 so I’ll take it with full gratitude!

    Poor Zeno, being unconscious at the exact time that Earl came! Though Xi Wei is more than capable to protect himself 🤣 too bad Earl really did fall for him!

    1. She let it smell like the magnolia so Zeno would realize that Xi Wei has done all of this to get that flower for the sole purpose of making that medicine for Zeno.

      Otherwise he may not have known. Does that make sense?

      4. Wooooooooow!

        I love mostly all of them too.
        But my top three I guess. Has to go to Apocalypse. Like come on. The MC really really tried in this arc. And it ended so damn sad. I felt so sad for the MC.
        I love the painter one next! Gosh. That little boy was so cute. And watching him turn a straight man gay is like so hot LMAO. The moe is so awesome. It’s way too much. And my next favorite has got to be the Xianxia. The last one before he went back to RL.
        God of light is okay. But I didn’t really like it THAT much. Because it was a biiiiit rapey. And God of Light never let him see his face in the beginning. Though it has got t be one of the funniest lol. LMAO. Crazy Sheng lmaooooo!!

      5. I also have to say. The first Arc holds a special place in my heart.
        It was the most innocent arc and the most refreshing.
        You can really feel all the love in the first Arc the main characters feel for each other. And he was the first Smoker lol

      6. And btw. I love the piano arc too. But mostly because of the ML being disabled.
        We never see a disabled main character. And the interactions were very cute. Though I kind of wished that arc happened earlier.
        Because the ML’s backstory was much more hardcore then the others. And I kind of wanted to see more wheelchair play lol.
        But well. They already connected. So their wasn’t much “finding” or “warming up to each other”. I would’ve loved to see Sheng do it to the ML’s newest life

    2. wait a second you two, what really happened was that Suji made it odorless like Xi Wei requested, but let the taste remain so that when Zeno drank it he would know what Zeno has done. But no it did not smell like anything.

    3. *sneaking in, ignoring the fact, of being 7 months late*
      @hoshiandme while I was reading through your discussion with kleep-sama, I stumbled over your comment about wanting to read stories with deaf or blind protagonists. I’m not quite sure, but I think I saw you commenting on one, which is in line with that.
      “The reader and protagonist have to be in true love” <– ML is so OP as he can be, while MC is deaf and without his glasses practically blind. If I was mistaken and you didn't read it, DO IT! That novel is completed and so.. SO… lovable!
      So… recommendation completed.. *sneaks out of the comment section after leaving a big thanks to kleep-sama and piper-sama for their hard work*
      btw.. regarding "It’s Actually Not Easy Wanting to be a Supporting Male Lead", this one has currently been picked up by crysanthemium garden and is updated every other day 🙂

  6. AAAAAAAHHHH Hace tiempo no me pasaba por aquí (y no sé si sea bueno o malo porque tuve tres caps para leer xD pero todo gracias a que mis vacaciones consisten en ser niñera de mis hermanitos ;;). Me encanta esto. Con el MTL, yo sentía pena por el conde Duin, quien resultaba engañado por Xi Wei (no sabía la razón xD), pero ahora no siento nada. Me parece, no sé, absurdo que oculte sus preferencias. Él engañó a su primera esposa, quien muy posiblemente lo amaba. Y luego quería a otra a la cual engañar (independientemente de si las mujeres venían a él interesadas en su riqueza). Entiendo completamente la actitud de Zeno, ¡No te acerques a nuestro protagonista!
    Me causó tanta gracia los celos de Zeno xDDD Me preguntó cómo reaccionará ahora que sabe que todo lo que Xi Wei hizo fue por él ❤
    Gracias por el esfuerzo. Gracias por todo -corazón para tú- ❤

  7. Very twisted Cinderella tale!
    I loved treading the comments this time. QWTFOD is one of my faves too. I esp. love the songwriter, supermodel, and raising his own son ancient arcs. I need to reread again. HDS is another fave, but updates so slowly. 😞
    Thank you.
