Chapter 314: Seven sins – sloth (Part 2)
“Is it because his injuries aren’t completely healed yet…..Or could it be that he’s really tired?” Chen Xin asked in a slightly worried voice.
“That’s strange…..He spends most of his time lying in bed playing games with the rest being spent on eating, sleeping, and looking after Xiao Xi……It has been a long time since he went out with me, so it would be strange for him to be tired.” Su Fei Fei said. She then bent down and shook Ye Tian Xie, “Tian Xie, quickly get up. You need to eat first before sleeping. If you don’t eat, it’ll be easy for you to become fat, have gallbladder stones, endocrine problems, your skin will become old…..and many other problems.”
After being shaked several times, Ye Tian Xie continued snoring, not being awakened at all.
Su Fei Fei curled her lips and forcefully pinched Ye Tian Xie’s arm, “Even if you don’t eat, you have to let Xiao Xi eat! She will only eat if you feed her. Even if you won’t starve to death after not eating for three-five days, Xiao Xi is still growing and still needs to eat.”
As soon as Su Fei Fei’s voice fell, Ye Tian Xie opened his eyes.
He finally sat up. He pulled back the blankets and placed them over Xiao Xi before saying in a sleepy voice, “Fei Fei, help me bring Xiao Xi’s breakfast over……”
After saying this, he laid straight back down like a corpse on the bed. He was lying there like a dead person losing that had lost all their strength.
“Lazing around to your death.” Su Fei Fei mumbled and said nothing else as she brought Xiao Xi’s breakfast over. It was a bowl of egg porridge, half a cup of milk, and some desserts. Ye Tian Xie sat up and hugged Xiao Xi as he whispered into her ear, “Xiao Xi, time to eat.”
The highest boundary of being lazy: Faced with a life threatening blade…..but being too lazy to dodge.
The second highest boundary of being lazy: Wanting to compete with someone in laziness…..but being too lazy to compete.
The sloth baptism of the seven sins baptism includes the ultimate laziness. At this time, the person inflicted with the sin will even feel that breathing was too much trouble.
But Ye Tian Xie was clearly not affected to this degree. When faced with things that he should and shouldn’t do, he could instantly suppress the effect of the sin. For example, he suppressed his laziness to take care of Xiao Xi.
Hearing him call her, Xiao Xi stopped mumbling in her sleep and leaned against him. Her eyelashes slightly moved as she opened her mouth, letting Ye Tian Xie feed her.
Watching Xiao Xi being pampered by Ye Tian Xie like this, Chen Xue’s eyes flashed with a look of evy. She turned to Chen Xin and asked, “Elder sister, why does Xiao Xi sleep everyday?”
“It could be…..related to her body. Don’t ask about it.” Chen Xin replied.
Chen Xue nodded and asked nothing else.
After finishing feeding Xiao Xi, Ye Tian Xie was like a puppet with its strings cut as he fell back down on the bed. Less than ten seconds passed before he fell asleep again, making Su Fei Fei feel helpless.
He could be really tired, so might as well let him sleep. Su Fei Fei silently pondered it as she walked out the room with Chen Xin and Chen Xue, gently closing the door behind them.
As for Ye Tian Xie’s sleep, it lasted an entire day. Other than feeding Xiao Xi at noon and in the afternoon, he was always in the dead sleep, not being willing to get up even with Su Fei Fei calling him. Not eating, not getting of the bed, he did not even go to the washroom. He was not sleepy or tired, he just did not want to move.
The first day this happened made Su Fei Fei feel anxious the entire day.
When the second day came, Ye Tian Xie was still the same, finally making her feel worried.
“Xie Tian, don’t sleep first. Get up and eat, alright? Today’s meal is not a nutritious special menu, but rather all your favourite foods. You can eat as much as you want.” Su Fei Fei shook Ye Tian Xie’s body, speaking in a voice filled with enticement.
“Oh…..” Ye Tian Xie mumbled in reply.
“Get up already! You haven’t eaten in a day already and you were even injured last time. If this continues, even if you’re strong, your body will waste away.”
“…..If you don’t get up, I’ll tickle you.” Su Fei Fei reached out her hands, scratching the air.
“Ai!” Su Fei Fei was completely defeated. She patted Ye Tian Xie’s face and helplessly said, “Tian Xie, at least tell me what is happening. If this continues, Chen Xin, Chen Xue, and I will all be worried.”
“Oh……Seven sins, sloth.” Ye Tian Xie half opened his eyes and yawned before replying in a weak voice. The second of the seven sins should be envy. Before this, the first sin, arrogance’s baptism had only lasted four days……After four days of arrogance, he welcomed sloth. Even he did not know what was happening…..but he was disinclined to think about it.
But this feeling was much clearer compared to arrogance and was indeed without a doubt “sloth”. A kind of sleep without being sleeping and having strength, but not being willing to use it. He clearly knew that this was “sloth”, but his body was still too lazy to move.
“Seven sins……sloth? Alright, Tian Xie, stop playing……Chen Xin and I made many dishes for you and even Xue’er helped, you can’t waste it and you can’t disregard our feelings.” Su Fei Fei persisted and continued shaking Ye Tian Xie. She had no idea what the seven sins were and at the same time, she was not like Zuo Po Jun or Murong Qiu Shui, she did not believe in this kind of strange thing. So, when Ye Tian Xie wrote about the seven sins to her, she just thought that it was a trick Ye Tian Xie was playing on her and did not mind it at all.
“Ung……” Ye Tian Xie was too lazy to explain.
“The windmills are squeaking as they turn and this scenery is truly beautiful. The sky and earth are beautiful, as well as a group of happy little friends……”
The new cellphone Ye Tian Xie had for only a few days began to ring with this happy song. The phone was at the head of the bed and Ye Tian Xie could reach it just by reaching his hand out. However, after a while, not to mention grabbing it, he did not even look at it.
“Tian Xie, phone call.”
“You take it…..” Ye Tian Xie muttered in a weak voice.
“Really.” Su Fei Fei pursed her lips and picked up the cellphone, looking at the caller ID……The people who knew Ye Tian Xie’s number could be counted on one hand. There were also only a few people he usually contacted.
“……Big brother Zuo, I’m Fei Fei. What’s is it?” After the call connected, Su Fei Fei directly said this.
“Where’s second brother?” Zuo Po Jun’s voice came from the phone, “He didn’t log on all day yesterday.”
Su Fei Fei glared over at Ye Tian Xie, “He’s lying in bed like he’s made of wood and calling him to get up is no use. He’s been like this since yesterday.”
“Ah? Why? What’s wrong with second brother?”
“Humph! Who knows? He said it’s the seven sins, sloth. Really! Big brother Zuo, do you and Qiu Shui want to come and play?”
“Seven sins…..sloth? Eh…..Ah? Oh, old fourth and I won’t come over. That’s all……That’s right, young miss Su, there is a secret about second brother I never told you before. Now it’s like this, I should tell you. You see…..You should know how strong second brother is, his body doesn’t even need to fear bullets, but such a strong body has a special flaw. Every year, second brother’s body will have a few days where it is worn out and can’t use any strength. This time is second brother’s most dangerous period, so this matter cannot be known by others, otherwise if someone with a grudge appears, second brother may be killed…..So, young miss Su, the thing that second brother needs the most in the next few days is rest as well as special care, understood?”
Su Fei Fei did not reply for a while, clearly being surprised by Zuo Po Jun’s words. After a while, she nodded, “Un, I understand big brother Zuo. I will protect and care for Tian Xie. Thank you for telling me about this.”
“Ke, ke, with the relation you have with second brother, this is something I should do. I’ll hang up first if there’s nothing else…..Un, goodbye young miss Su, second brother.” Zuo Po Jun quickly hanged up the call. Then he tapped his head, feeling that everything he said was too perfect.
After putting down the phone, Su Fei Fei’s expression had visibly changed. She quickly stood up and pulled up Ye Tian Xie’s blanket before fixing it. Then she bent down and said, “Tian Xie, I knew you must be very tired, but be obedient and don’t sleep first. The weaker you are, the more you need to eat.”
Ye Tian Xie: “……”
Su Fei Fei ran out and after a while, she came in with a plate filled with dishes which she put near the head of Ye Tian Xie’s bed.
Picking up a bowl, she half filled it with porridge. She carefully tested the temperature before carefully placing it in front of Ye Tian Xie’s mouth, “Come, open your mouth. Have some porridge to wet your stomach first, you’re not allowed to refuse.”
He was just lazy, too lazy to move…..But at this time, because of what Zuo Po Jun said, he was protected and treated, like a terminally ill patient. He could not help opening his mouth……
A warm current filled his mouth and entered his body. He did not care about the taste of the porridge as he opened his eyes and firmly looked at Su Fei Fei for a while. In this life, this was the second woman that had ever fed him.
This meal lasted very long because Ye Tian Xie opening his mouth alone used a lot of strength. Su Fei Fei felt pain and weakness in her heart from seeing this. Zuo Po Jun was a “simple and honest fatty that could not lie” and was one of the closest people to Ye Tian Xie, so his words and Ye Tian Xie’s state was enough to make her believe him.
After finishing his lunch, Ye Tian Xie was disinclined to even change his position. He closed his eyes and did not make any sound for a long time.
“Sleep well, big sister will protect you.” Su Fei Fei mischievously rubbed Ye Tian Xie’s face, speaking with a grin on her face. Then she put away everything and walked out, gently closing the door behind her.
