Chapter 46


At Saint Isaac’s Cathedral, Avdotya Yushka was praying to God.

There was no one in the whole cathedral, a feat which only the old lady’s family could manage at this time.

Avdotya Yushka was obviously old. Behind her, Zheng Jingyin came in with a Chinese man.

Avdotya Yushka stood up and looked at him.

“I heard you say you can get my children back, is that correct? How much?”

The Chinese man looked around at the church, “I want this church. Can you do it?”

“This church is much more precious than money,” Avdotya Yushka said expressionlessly.

“Don’t worry, I’ll give you a trial run.” The Chinese man touched the nearby pew.


The fire at the old house by Lake Kawaguchi had been put out. Sato looked at the house, which was relatively intact.

No matter what happened to it, this house still continued to stand here formidably. He sighed with emotion. Would there ever be a day when this would finally come to an end?

It appeared the Russian family had put this place up for sale again so he didn’t know who the next owner would be.

As he was thinking this, a Japanese intermediary suddenly came to the door and nodded to him.

“The sale was successful.”

Sato was stunned. “You’ve worked hard.(1) Was it really sold so quickly?”

“It was sold to a Chinese company,” the intermediary said. “The owner said he would be responsible for the repair costs since he was the one who caused the fire here.”

The intermediary showed Sato a photo of the other party. When Sato looked at it, he found that it was the Chinese man whose thoughts he couldn’t seem to read before, the relatively shorter one of the two.

This boss didn’t look like he would be easy to serve.

“What do you need me to do?” Sato asked.

“Don’t do anything,” the intermediary said. “He said that he would bring some friends here for a trip after a while. All you have to do is keep the rooms clean.”

Sato nodded and sighed. It seemed that no one had learned anything.

At this time, a Russian woman got out of the car outside. She was very beautiful, wearing an expensive coat, and looking at the house with a conscientious expression on her face.

Sato greeted her, “Miss.”

“Before the contract is signed, this house is still owned by Avdotya Yushka,” the Russian girl said. “Let me in, I’m going to find something.”


The secretary put the real estate contract on Xie Yuchen’s desk so that the other man could go over it one last time.

Xie Yuchen looked out of the window without looking back so the secretary silently took his leave.

The scenery outside the window was shrouded in fog, which meant that there was a heavy fog covering Beijing today.

He took out his cell phone to confirm the ophthalmic research institute’s patents with Avdotya Yushka but the other party didn’t respond.

He knew that there was always a fifty-fifty chance when it came to success and failure.

He sat there quietly. It was rare for him to have the time to look back on his life so quietly.

The tailor had sent a message telling him that there were still many details about the costume that he wasn’t very clear on so he was hoping to communicate with him.

Xie Yuchen looked back at a porcelain jar that was sitting on the table next to him.

There was a dancing figure on the blue-and-white patterned porcelain jar.


Thank you for reading.

  1. “He said that he would bring some friends here for a trip after a while.“I hope the friends he mentioned are not Wu Xie, Xiao Ge and Fatty.
    Thank you so much for translating this interesting story as well. 💗


  2. I’m so intrigued by the ending with Xiao Hua, but I feel like I need to re-read this whole thing from start to finish to fully get my head around it! Thank you for your translation as always!


  3. Itʼs confirmed and canon, this small book of HeiHua is really related to the Restart: Part 3 and 4, and honestly, Iʼm dying to know what did Er Ye predicted, and what did they agreed on to do once there was no one to guard the bronze gate anymore. Thanks for the translations as always! (And by the way, how does Qi Yu fit in this bundle of mess? Thatʼs basically my biggest curiosity right now. I agree with the other comments too!)


  4. Thank you so much for the translations! I hope he would continue to write what happens next and how it ties to restart 3 &4 one day!
    So many new mysteries unanswered. Sigh
    I also need to read this story again
