The Chinese New Year was coming to an end. Remains from red firecrackers lay scattered on the shallow lawns outside houses. The weather had not yet turned warm, and a white mist could be condensed with a light breath.
Compared to the cold outside, the temperature indoors was much higher. It was so warm that people wouldn’t want to take even a half step out of the door. This warmth that could be felt from within the bed covers in the early mornings was the reason why countless numbers of people wanted to linger in bed.
Yuncheng, Fengshan villa area.
In a European-style mansion located halfway up the mountain, a handsome man lay on a big bed. He seemed to be one of the “captives” taken in by the warmth of the blankets.
His eyes were clearly open, meaning he was awake, but there was no sign of “freeing” himself from the bed.
The man lying on the bed was staring intently with a pair of deep eyes at the ceiling above. He was obviously dawdling on the bed but his eyes were full of seriousness as if he was thinking about some major life event at the moment.
If someone outside saw him, they would surely think so. After all, this immature behavior of idling on the bed was not something one would associate with this “fierce-looking” man.
However, there was one small exception.
On the surface, this handsome man could only be seen as cold-hearted, but underneath, he held a little secret that contained something encompassing Nie Xiao’s whole world, something he wouldn’t let go of.
On the bedside table on Nie Xiao’s right side, a cute palm-sized cotton nest rested safely.
Two pink and tender bunny-like ears covered with cotton could be seen poking through the round cotton nest. The cute atmosphere brought by the ‘chi chi’ sounds sharply contrasted with the style of the entire room.
However, if one looked closely at the room, one would find such cute objects almost everywhere, filling up every corner of the room.
At that moment, the two bunny-like ears in the cotton nest suddenly shuddered, and the warm cotton ball blocking the hole rolled to the side as it was pushed out by a small claw .
Then, a milk-tea colored little hamster protruded his small head from the nest. Squinting his small eyes, he stretched out comfortably with the support of his two small claws.
The little hamster who had been sleeping all night was full of vitality and vigor at the moment. Looking at the man still lying on the bed, he spread his short legs and rushed over. He habitually climbed onto Nie Xiao’s pillow then grabbed onto Nie Xiao’s short hair and climbed up, standing on Nie Xiao’s forehead.
The little hamster occupying the “highland” narrowed his eyes happily. Apparently, it was another good day to “give power and blessing” to Nie Xiao’s head.
Afterwards, the little hamster lowered his head and put it close to Nie Xiao’s forehead intimately, as if giving a good morning kiss.
With such a warm and soft little ball pressed on his forehead, Nie Xiao was no longer cold and indifferent. Raising his hand, he placed the little guy into his palm and then sat up.
Looking at Nie Xiao who got up successfully, the little hamster attached to Nie Xiao’s finger narrowed his eyes happily.
The little hamster warrior had defeated the evil Bed Demon King twice today and rescued his master father trapped in it!
“Chi!” Daddy, good morning!
Nie Xiao spread his hand and looked at the energetic little dumpling in his palm; with a handsome expressionless face, he simply petted1 In the raws it was “rua”. I can’t find the meaning anywhere, but based on the texts, I supposed it is the sound of kissing so I put in “mwua” instead. Edit: a comment informed me that it actually means aggressive petting, sigh I’ve been translating this for almost a year and I only got to know the meaning, my incompetence. the little hamster from head to tail.
The little hamster had been blown to dizziness by the many pets. If it weren’t for Daddy’s sake he would definitely turn his face.
Even if the petting was very comfortable and enjoyable.
(^ – v – ^)
Nie Xiao vigorously petted for a few more times and then put the little hamster on the bedside table; he then stood up and took two pieces of clothing from the closet and walked to the bathroom.
The little hamster lay on the bedside table for a while before coming out of the comfortable crumpled state. He raised his small head and glanced in Nie Xiao’s direction. He was also ready to take a shower himself.
He slid through the small slide built next to the bedside table to the carpet and then ran towards the washing and sanitation area located in the corner of the room in a practiced motion.
First was solving the physiological problems in the small toilet with curtains, then drilling into the small bathroom on the other side to roll a few times over the delicate strawberry-like sand bath to clean all his fur until it became smooth. Finally, after shaking off the remaining sand on his body, a fresh “Strawberry Daifuku”2 came out.
After the fragrant little hamster came out of the bath, he squatted at the door of Nie Xiao’s bathroom, listening to the sound of water behind the frosted glass, and began a long, tough wait.
The teeny black eyes looked at its own blurry reflection on the glass door. The lone hamster had nothing to do. It felt boring. The idle life of a hamster was like a salted fish3someone leading a meaningless life.
Every time my daddy takes a bath, he takes it slowly.
After waiting a little longer, the little hamster couldn’t help but start thinking about something, and his small heart started to beat nervously and worriedly. If it wasn’t for him seeing the figure still moving, he would’ve thought Nie Xiao had drowned in the water.
Fortunately, the door opened, and he watched as Nie Xiao walked out unharmed. The little hamster breathed out a big, white bubble in relief.
Almost worried this baby to death.
Nie Xiao walked out of the bathroom naked and subconsciously looked at the little blanket on the side. As expected, he saw a small ball of wool squatting and staring at himself, and he couldn’t help but poke the little guy’s forehead with his wet fingertip leaving a shallow pit on the fluffy fur.
“Chi!” Certainly not!
The hair that has just been sorted out was messed up by the unscrupulous master within a blink of an eye. The little hamster immediately turned his head around with a huff, his round butt facing Nie Xiao.
Nie Xiao’s eyes couldn’t help but contain a trace of a smile as he took a towel next to him to wipe off the water drops on his body.
Wide shoulders and narrow hips, smooth abdominal muscles, long straight legs, a tall but not rugged, flawless body was displayed most vividly during the hasty wiping.
The varying large and small scars on his chest and back screamed of strong male pheromones.
After putting on his underwear and bathrobe, Nie Xiao grabbed the small dumpling who was still combing his hair, and wrapped his hands around him, to go straight to the door.
Being a dutiful poop-shovel officer4slave to their pet, Nie Xiao picked up a small blue shovel with familiarity and squatted down beside the small hamster’s washing area. He opened the curtains to the hamster’s small toilet and scooped out the solidified bentonite ball and threw it into the trash can, then added a new piece of sand into it.
“It’s really smelly, Wu Yi is little Stinky today, again.”
Nie Xiao pretended to hold his nose in disgust, causing the little hamster to protest saying ‘chi chi’ in embarrassment. The squealing sounded soft and cute.
“Chi!” I’m not little stinky!
The little hamster gazed at Nie Xiao with resentment. He objected to the name “Little Stinky,” but the hamster couldn’t defend himself because he couldn’t speak any words. Even if his body was full of protests, the nickname couldn’t be changed. The dictatorship of the unscrupulous master could not be prevented.
“Let’s go Stinky treasure. Let’s go get breakfast.”
Nie Xiao’s lips formed a small smile, refreshingly carrying the inexorable hamster downstairs for breakfast. The servants in the villa prepared food early, and two sets of tableware were placed on the table.
A normal-sized set, and an exquisitely designed tiny set.
Once Nie Xiao sat down, he placed the little hamster on the table. The little hamster smelt the fragrance of fresh grains in the rice bowl. He was already hungry, causing his stomach to rumble. He rushed over and grabbed his small basin. His small teeth began to nibble as his tiny claws picked up grain after grain, eating quickly and cutely.
Nie Xiao couldn’t help but smile as he began to eat gracefully and calmly.
After filling his stomach, the little hamster glanced at the small rice bowl with some leftover food and upholding the nature of hoarding, he took the opportunity to hide the remaining grains in his cheek pouch, causing both his cheeks to bulge out.
The plump chubby face was so cute that Nie Xiao couldn’t help but stretch out his fingers to rub it. This rubbing almost made the little hamster perform “open the warehouse and dump the goods” on the spot.
Fortunately, the small claw quickly covered the tiny mouth, preventing the food from spilling out.
The little hamster could not help but feel aggrieved, he instantly raised his head and glanced angrily at the shameless Daddy. If it were not for the sake of this man being his father, he would definitely kill him on the spot!
Can this little hamster’s cheek pouch be rubbed casually! Grave eggs!
Being looked at with an aggrieved expression, Nie Xiao could not help but withdraw his hand and watch as his little dumpling swept away the last remaining food in the small basin. Then, once the hamster was finished, he picked up a small sipper on the side and placed it near the other party’s mouth.
The little hamster was quite familiar with these actions. He lifted his small head and hugged the small glass nozzle to drink water. After a night of sleep, he was also really thirsty.
Having eaten enough and also stored up future snacks, the little dumpling lay on the tablecloth immediately, feeling so full that he didn’t want to move at all.
Nie Xiao had also finished his meal at this time and let some people come over to collect the tableware. He reached out for a palm-sized electronic weighing scale, and taking advantage of the small, fat hamster’s distraction, he quickly grabbed him and placed him on the scale.
Looking at the numbers shown above, both large and small showed shocked expressions.
Little hamster: OvO
“Little Stinky, you actually weigh 10 more grams after one meal! You’re going to become a big, fat child.” Nie Xiao was amazed, this was almost one-fifth of his own weight. “You are one small rice bucket!”
“Chi!” I am not, I will not!
The little hamster felt as if his whole rodent body was exposed. He quickly climbed down the scale. Two small claws were holding his bulging little cheeks as if to say that this was not their true weight.
But Nie Xiao was cold and ruthless, “The food is only hoarded for now, but isn’t it still going to be eaten by none other than your hamster self later?”
Little hamster: QAQ
In order to prove that he wouldn’t eat it, the little hamster pushed on the surface of his cheeks with his small claws, then took a wheat grain from the small pouch and placed it on Nie Xiao’s palm, his small round eyes staring at Nie Xiao.
“Chi!” WuYi does not eat stored food, so WuYi is not fat.
Nie Xiao suddenly became amused; looking at the wheat grain in his hand, his heart was filled with warmth again. He couldn’t help but rub the forehead of the little hamster with his fingertips, “Well, Stinky isn’t fat for now. So hoard more, eat more and grow up until you’re able to feed your Daddy!”
The little hamster was encouraged and immediately squealed ‘chi‘ with joy, saying he would fulfill the promise. Seeing a person as big as Nie Xiao suddenly ignited the ambition of raising a family.
WuYi will feed Daddy after!!
Just then, a phone call came. Nie Xiao looked at the caller ID and answered it directly. The little hamster stood on the table and looked up, two small ears erect showing he was alert.
As soon as the call connected, a cheerful and energetic voice came from the speakers.
“Boss, Boss, Happy New Year! There is a new list from Yan-Jie. It’s about freshwater fathead fish, just wants to ask us if we want to come over to eat.”
“Eat.” Nie Xiao raised his eyebrows, answering concisely.
“Boss! How could you agree!!!”
The other side didn’t expect Nie Xiao to agree. The clear voice suddenly lost its previous vitality and asked with heartache, “Boss, shouldn’t you take advantage of the Chinese New Year holidays and spend time with Labor Day5WuYi in English is 5-1 or May 1 hence, Labor Day? I still want to spend two days in Hawaii QAQ!”
Nie Xiao: “…” What a mess.
[old man in the subway looking at phone.jpg]6
The little hamster eavesdropping on the side was very angry at this time, and he slapped the face of the mobile phone in protest.
WuYi is not Labor Day, WuYi is a little hamster!!!
HAPPY LABOR DAY!!!
