Er Huang’s departure seemed to bring Feng Jing’s special connection with the canine world to a close. He discovered that he could no longer understand dogs nor communicate with them. He was back to being a normal human.
However, the void the yellow mutt left was hard to fill, and the only recourse friends and relatives suggested was adopting another. When Feng Jing mentioned the same to Jiang Ran, she flatly refused saying she was too disheartened over Er Huang’s passing, so she wouldn’t want another dog for a long time.
“Then let’s not raise a dog, let’s raise a kid,” the film emperor quickly retorted.
Jiang Ran: “——”
The plan to make a child was placed onto the schedule just like that.
Feng Jing already worked out regularly and possessed no bad habits, so after getting ready to get pregnant, he just paid more attention to his resting times and eating habits. Meanwhile, Jiang Ran had to focus on exercising more; every time Feng Jing went to the gym, he’d bring her along. After a while, she successfully got pregnant.
The two families took turns visiting her, advising about what to pay attention to and also nag Feng Jing on how to take care of a pregnant woman. It was the first time he would be a father, and he was really anxious. Every time he saw Jiang Ran walk, he would be worried, let alone her packing things and sending them out.
Since Jiang Ran could no longer work, she suddenly found herself a lot freer. It was not a bad thing to have ten or so months of peace, for she could watch shows, read books, and play games. But now Feng Jing did not want her to touch phones or the TV because ‘they had radiation, and it wasn’t good for her body’.
Her current life was as lonely as the white snow. When her husband was home, as long as he saw her on her phone or watching television he would become extra naggy as if possessed by Tang Shen1Tang Seng refers to Tang Sanzang, the monk from journey to the west. so the reference here is feng jing being especially long winded. After being told off a few times, Jiang Ran learnt her lesson. As long as the monk was home, she would take a book and read on the balcony, and the moment he left the house she would put it down and play on her phone or laptop.
She felt that she had gone back to the past — to a time when she was a student and didn’t want to study, so she’d do this to get around her parents.
However, Feng Jing turned down a lot of jobs because she was pregnant, spending more time at home. When she tried to hint at him, that because she was pregnant, he should work harder to earn money for their child…
Feng Jing simply smiled at her. “Silly Ran Ran, the amount of money your husband currently earns is enough to raise a football team’s worth of children.”
Jiang Ran: “——”
Ah, this man was simply too lazy, making no attempt whatsoever to achieve progress!
One day, after finally managing to wait until he left the house again, she picked up her phone to play games. There was a new RPG called 《Money and Wild Men》 that was really hot, making its way to all sorts of pages Jiang Ran visited. Since the characters were quite pretty, she played some too.
However, she hadn’t played for long when she realised this was a money-eating game. If she didn’t put money into the game, there wouldn’t be a wild man here to date her. Jiang Ran’s phone was linked with Feng Jing’s bank card, the one that he had given her to buy meat for the dogs. When she got the card, he had said there wasn’t much in there, but when she checked afterwards – there was over ten million.
She didn’t bother to discuss with him if that could be considered a lot. She simply linked it with her phone and was now using it to raise four wild men.
Thinking about it, it was quite exciting.
She drew the cards from all the first draws and got 3 SSRs2Our teammate Solacium says: You know those gacha games where you have to roll for cards or characters? SSR is the highest tier (& rarest), so it seemed like she was at least a little European3Our teammate ValkynGG explains: Irishmen are supposed to be very lucky in tales. Disney even made a live action movie based on it- The Luck of the Irish. Something like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and stuff like that are from Irishmen.. But she didn’t get the one she wanted, so she put in another few 6484Solacium says (again): Oh, 648 is the price of an in-game top-up, but it seems to be used as a catch-all term for like, spending money (on games)
Like… “Is there any special technique I can use to pull my desired character?”… “648” (i.e., spend money).
Two minutes after successfully topping up, her dearest husband sent her a message.
【Husband: Bao-bei, what are you doing at home? [smile]】
【Bao-bei wife5宝贝 bǎo bèi treasured object; treasure; darling; baby; cowry; good-for-nothing or queer character,老婆 lǎo pó (coll.) wife: Reading books at home [cute]】
【Husband: Oh, I just received a withdrawal notification from the bank, are you playing games? [smile]】
Jiang Ran: “——”
I was careless!
Although he gave her the card, the phone number attached to it was still Feng Jing’s! The moment she used it, he’d receive a notification!
… this is too shameless. 🙂
【Bao-bei wife: Hehe, I saw that there’s a new skin in the game you play and wanted to put in money to buy you the full set [shy]】
【Husband: Is that so [smile]】
【Husband: I’m getting back to work, don’t play for too long.】
Jiang Ran let out a sigh of relief and hurriedly replied:
【Go go go, good luck with your work!】
Jiang Ran logged out of WeChat and back into the game to continue drawing cards. Well, the heavens favour those who work hard, she finally got the SSR she wanted!
After bagging it, of course there would be an automatic notification prompting her to share it, for her to show off. And just like that, Jiang Ran sent it to the moments, taking care to block Feng Jing before sharing it.
【Jiang Ran: Stealing my husband’s money to get this wild man ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! [photo]】
As there were many people in her moments who also played the game, she got a lot of notifications and likes within a few moments.
【Yan Huanhuan:… It’s not enough that you stole Feng Jing in the 3D world, even in a game you want to fight over a husband with me! Let’s break up!】
Zhao Ke: F*ck!! How much did you put into the game! I put in over ten thousand yet didn’t get this card! I want to uninstall [goodbye]】
Jiang Ran replied to Zhao Ke:
【I put in over a few thousand too, perhaps he likes me better [shy]】
Pat came Zhao Ke’s reply:
【I want to break up with you too [smile]】
【Du Xiaoyou: A-a-a-a I sooooooooo want this! The naked body is oh so beautiful [shy]】
Jiang Ran replied Du Xiaoyou:
【His figure is really good.】
After getting the card, Jiang Ran discovered a very serious problem: she still had to continue putting money into the game to be able to keep the SSR.
… Hehe, I just knew these men weren’t truly here to date me, they just want to cheat me out of my money.
She picked the one that she loved the most, planning to raise it first. She had just gotten high on it when Feng Jing sent a message.
【Bao-bei wife: What’s the matter, husband [cute]】
When sharing the post on her moments Jiang Ran was a little worried, but after ascertaining that she had blocked Feng Jing she relaxed a little.
【Husband: Someone sent me a picture just now.】
【Bao-bei wife: ………】
Feng Jing didn’t send her any other photo, just the screenshot of her moments.
Yes, indeed! It was the picture of her showing off her SSR.
【Husband: Stealing my money and knowing to block me, quite powerful hmm [smile]】
【Bao-bei wife: ………】
【Bao-bei wife: I’ll go delete it now! [cute]】
Jiang Ran quickly deleted the moment and screenshotted it for Feng Jing to show that she was clean.
【Bao-bei wife: I’ve already deleted it! (* ￣3)(ε￣ *)】
【Bao-bei wife: Hahaha, what are we eating tonight (* ￣3)(ε￣ *)】
【Husband: Who do you want to eat with? Li Zeyan?】
【Bao-bei wife: ……… 】
Jiang Ran swiftly clicked open her moments and sent a new update. This time she blocked no one.
【Jiang Ran: Being caught playing 《Money and Wild Men》 by your husband is no different from being caught cheating [bye] [bye] [bye]】
【Yan Huanhuan: Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha good job!】
【Zhao Ke: Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, you want to make me die laughing.】
【Mi Xian Er: … So was Film Emperor Feng cheated on? Whose name did you change to ‘husband’?】
Jiang Ran replied to the able assistant of her husband:
【No one’s [bye]】
Mi Xian Er replied to his boss’ wife:
【Ah, then there’s still hope.】
【Jiang Ran: ——】
After seeing this, Feng Jing liked her post and commented with a smiley.
The corners of her mouth curled up as she commented:
【Who sent Feng Jing the screenshot, don’t let me find out [smile]】
In a jiffy, the replies followed.
【Yan Huanhuan: Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, a hero!】
【Mi Xian Er: … It wasn’t me [sweats]】
【Zhao Ke: So what is Feng Jing’s WeChat? [naughty smile]】
Jiang Ran looked around but couldn’t tell who had sent the screenshot. The other was very smart, only taking the photo of her moments and not of the comments, leaving her no clues.
After work, Feng Jing went to Tian Xia6An expensive restaurant, the same one from I’m Unsuited for Dating. to order dinner before driving home. Hearing the sound of the door, Jiang Ran jogged downstairs.
He had just put the food down on the table before turning around and seeing her run over. He hurriedly caught her. “Don’t run, can’t you walk slowly?”
She wrapped her arms around his waist and looked up at him. “Husband, you’re back.”
Feng Jing smiled and ruffled her hair. “Yeah, are you this obedient because you know that you wrongs?
Jiang Ran blinked at him innocently. Normally, she’d really feel a little guilty – but now she was pregnant, what could her husband do to her?
As if seeing through her thoughts, he kissed her lips and murmured, “Silly wife, there will come a day when this child is born.”
Jiang Ran: “——”
So you’re going to keep a score this until then?
Somehow, the image of a Feng Jing holding a pen and writing in a little black book surfaced, accompanied by a ‘really holds grudges’.
“All right, go clean up and let’s have dinner.”
Jiang Ran washed her hands and sat down to eat with Feng Jing. Although she was pregnant, her status wasn’t that obvious. She had asked her mother about it who had said that when she carried her she didn’t have too much of a reaction either.
She(JR) had seen the pregnant Du Xiaoyou before, who had poured her heart out in her moments a lot, causing her(JR) to shiver. Luckily, she had it a lot easier than the other.
Feng Jing was also worried that she’d be too emotional when pregnant. Now, she could eat, sleep and even steal his money to raise a wild man… he could let out a breath of relief.
After dinner, Feng Jing walked around the area with her to exercise a bit before returning home.
“Bao-bei, go wash first, carefully.”
“Yes, yes, you say it ten times a day.” Jiang Ran patted his perky butt once before walking into the bathroom and closing the door.
Feng Jing, who was teased: “——”
Using the fact that she was married, Jiang Ran kept teasing him with touches, truly unafraid. He looked at the closed bathroom door and smiled.
However, that sentence still lingered…
There will come a day when this child is born…
