Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations

Over on the other end, He Jiayu’s smile was as gentle as a spring breeze. He was even in the mood to make a joke of it. “If I didn’t come, who would you have paired up with?”

Su Xiaomo realized then that Mr. He was jealous…

Ahem, dear Cutie, it’s quite windy today, isn’t it? Gosh, I can’t hear you over the noise!”

He Jiayu went on smiling. “Is it?”

He bit Su Xiaomo’s earlobe, and repeated his question in a husky voice. “How about now? Can you hear me like this?”

Su Xiaomo was speechless. Damn it! You’re not playing by the book!

“If you weren’t here, I – I’d pair up with Xiaxia!” Su Xiaomo said with a straight face.

He Jiayu found that an acceptable answer. “Good girl. It’ll take us a while to get there. Use my shoulder and get some rest.”

“Sure!” Su Xiaomo snuggled into his arms comfortably and happily fell asleep.

Darting a look at their cameraman, who was dying from envy, He Jiayu smiled. “Feel free to keep the camera rolling.”

The cameraman didn’t know what to say. Like hell! He would have to ask for compensation afterwards for all the envious tears he had to swallow…

A couple of hours later, the crew arrived at the designated village.

The first segment was the so-called “coupling up.”

Apart from coming up with the plan, Xiaojiu also acted as the only host of the show. “In this game, all the guys will take part in a thousand-meter race. The first to complete it will have first pick! However, the girls have a veto over the choice! So, it’s not just about your physical strength! Time to unleash your charisma!”

An Xiaxia and Su Xiaomo cheered for their respective husbands. “Good luck!”

The two women then stood at the finish line, looking forward to seeing them arrive first.

The first contestant returned.

So did the second.

And the third.

A few minutes passed before the two guys showed up, strolling toward them as they commented on the view of the surrounding area.

“We have very fresh air here. I bet it looks nicer when it snows.”

“That’s right. Look, that’s a lovely pig…”

An Xiaxia and Su Xiaomo followed their gazes. Nearby was an open pig pen with a fence around it. Inside were a few ugly black piglets.

They called that lovely?!

Oh no!

Mr. Idols, you two are way too casual about this!

The crew waited eagerly as the two men walked slowly toward them. Wiping away her cold sweat, Xiaojiu gave them a smile that looked more like a grimace. “Seniors… I see you two are really… confident in yourselves! The other three male guests have made their choices, and the two female guests left happen to be your wives…”

Who in the right mind would pick An Xiaxia or Su Xiaomo with these two fellows around? It would be like signing a death warrant.

Sheng Yize and He Jiayu went up to their wives respectively and stood there, looking quite at ease.

“Why didn’t you run?” asked An Xiaxia curiously.

Sheng Yize darted her a glance. “Aren’t I charming enough for you to veto everyone else?”

That statement was rather arrogant, presumptuous, and a little cocky…

However, An Xiaxia couldn’t tell him he was wrong.

He Jiayu, on the other hand, gave a rather well-rounded reply. “Because I have faith in you.”

Su Xiaomo smiled shyly. “You’re so gooey~”

“I trust your taste,” said He Jiayu calmly. “Apart from me, none of the other four guys is your type.”

“… Hey, did you just call me superficial?!”

The director was over the moon. He gestured at the cameramen, telling them to take more footage of the interactions of these two couples.

Ahem. We’ll now move on to the second segment: making lunch! The girls will go grocery shopping and the guys will cook!”
