What Are They Doing 2022 Chapter 19


Liu Sang woke up. The heavy rain was beginning to fall again, the sound of it quite majestic.

He seemed to be in an abandoned factory. There was a large window on the side made up of many lattices through which light was streaming in from the outside.

The rain was hitting the large window, chaotically flowing down the hundreds of pieces of small square glass that made up the window.

Liu Sang originally liked this state.

His head was throbbing and he could feel a bloody scab on his temple.

Did he just get knocked out?


He vaguely saw a man straddling a chair across from him, his head propped up by his hands which were resting on the back of the chair.

He had short hair, single eyelids,(1) was very thin, and was holding Liu Sang’s headphones in his hands.

Liu Sang could also see a lot of roses outside the window, swaying in the heavy rain.

“Are you the psycho killer?” He asked the man.

It was hard for him to hear the man’s heartbeat now.

As the man lit a cigarette, Liu Sang continued his questioning, “What’s your relationship with Tu Dian?”(2)

“We’re his eggs,” Single-Eyelid said before yanking his T-shirt collar aside and showing Liu Sang his collarbone.

There was a tattoo on his collarbone with the Roman numeral for 17 on it.(3)

“I’m the seventeenth one.”

Liu Sang looked at him, “Why kill people?”

17 laughed, “Don’t you feel like the whole world is covered in something, an uncomfortable electric wave with a gel-like atmosphere where nothing can be seen or felt clearly?”

When Liu Sang continued to look at him silently, the other party continued, “I’ve been very distressed. No matter what I do, nothing will change so I’ve been looking for a doctor.”


As the rain continued pouring down heavily, 17 went into Tu Dian’s office. Tu Dian, who was wearing a white lab coat, turned to look at him.


17 sat in the McDonald’s restaurant and silently looked at his diagnosis sheet.

The word “kill” was written on it.

It was raining heavily outside, and there was no one in the restaurant except for the waiter who was staring at the door in a daze.


Liu Sang looked at 17 and said, “Call him and let me talk to him.”

“Flies don’t contact their eggs once they lay them,” 17 said. “You are indeed different from ordinary people. He said that you’re the only one he can’t influence.”

Liu Sang knew that there was another person in this room because he could vaguely hear their breathing.

Yes, Tu Dian’s voice was very clear in his memory.

He was a strange creature that lay eggs in others. His pleasure came from leading people into the abyss of their lives.

This description of him laying eggs was actually coined by Liu Sang himself.

Tu Dian’s voice had a strange charm to it that would enable people to hear their own inner voice.


“Well, it’s the number of his works. I’m not a masterpiece.” 17 laughed, “What do you think of me?”

“Very boring.” Liu Sang said, not hiding his true feelings at all.

17’s expression turned cold, obviously very unhappy with this statement.


The cow dung on Wang Meng’s hands had finally dried.

He cleaned everything up as best he could and started organizing.

Satellite phones weren’t smartphones, so there was only a small green LED light glowing in the darkness.

The cell phone’s battery was running out of power.

He didn’t know what to do with that lump of cash.

Why give him money? Wang Meng really didn’t understand what Kan Jian was thinking.

He opened the letter and started reading:

Brother Meng,

I hope this letter finds you well. You must read it very carefully because it contains the detailed plan I came up with.

You are still in the seven-day no-responsibility return period.

Just think about it. You need to let the buyer think that you’re a poor-quality good so that they’ll return you.

But be careful.

The return clause states that the integrity of the goods isn’t guaranteed upon return.

So, we have to figure out how to cancel the transaction through the online shop’s rules.

TN Notes:

(1) Some people have visible eyelid creases, known as double eyelids. Some were born without eyelid creases, which are called single eyelids. Double eyelid surgery is quite popular in many Asian countries (according to google).

(2) Wait, as in “A Thousand Faces” Tu Dian?!!! 

(3) The roman numeral would be XVII but the author use “17” throughout the text so I’ll just do that as well.


Sorry sorry, only 1 today. I thought mom and dad would be up here at noon but I got a text at like 9:30 saying they’re already tailgating so I’ve gotta go lol.

  1. I totally forgot about Tu Dian! A Thousand Faces is the book I like the less. I feel cheated. At first I thought it would be about human masks and dirty faces which I find interesting. Then with the intros i thought I would know some of Wuxie’s secrets… But at least Tu Dian was the character that interested me the most from that story. Now I’m left wondering about time frames…
    And I just don’t want to think about Wang Meng dirty hands… Almost puked
    Enjoy your time with Dad and Mom! Thank you for the chapter
