What Are They Doing 2022 Chapter 21


Baishe was hiding in the bathroom. Outside was a shadowy human figure sticking close to the frosted glass.

The thing had to be dead and highly decomposed, but it could still talk.

A violent stench filled the whole space.

Baishe’s tall body was curled up in the bathtub. He found that she must have soaked in the bathtub during the early stages of decay because there was a layer of thick, sticky, foul-smelling green liquid stuck to the bathtub’s surface.

Too frightened to worry about it right now, Baishe quickly called Kan Jian for help.


In the video call, Kan Jian and Che Galiba could see the shadow through the frosted glass trying to push its way through the door.

The frosted glass wasn’t very strong and had started to crack, but as they watched, it seemed as if the whole piece of glass was falling out of the door frame.

“Get me out of here!” Baishe shouted. “Come and save me!”

The camera suddenly switched to the front-facing view, revealing Baishe’s terrified face.

“Didn’t you say this is your one true love?” Kan Jian asked.

Baishe immediately became furious, “We’re different species! Fuck, the glass fell off! Shit!!!!”

Apparently, the glass had finally fallen out of the door frame and the thing finally made its way inside.

Baishe fell silent, staring blankly in front of him.

Kan Jian quickly took a screenshot of Baishe’s face and then switched apps to start typing.

Che Galiba stared at him in shock, “You’re still in the mood to order takeout?”

“This isn’t takeout. There’s only one way to save him.”

Kan Jian clicked on the online store’s inventory list, quickly loaded Baishe’s photo to it, set the price as three yuan, and then submitted it.

Then he cut back to the video call and shouted to Baishe, “Hang in there! Someone will kidnap you soon.”

Baishe didn’t respond; he was so scared that he was about to vomit.


After Liang Yanyan finished shopping, she carried everything to the coffee shop where Ah Tou was drinking coffee.

Although many years had passed, it was still the same coffee shop.

Shen Qianjue was sitting across from them, next to Zhang Haiqi and another tall girl in black.(1)

The black-clothed girl and Liang Yanyan looked at each other, both tensing up in alertness.

“Guests?” She asked Ah Tou.

Ah Tou asked her to sit down, “Well, they’re not really guests. We talked for a while and what they had to say is quite interesting. Please listen to them.”

Shen Qianjue politely greeted Liang Yanyan.

“Why us?” Ah Tou asked. “I don’t want to get too involved.”

“Think about it,” Shen Qianjue said. “There are some things that men can’t do.”

“What the hell are we going to do?” Ah Tou asked.

“Have you ever heard of ‘Rotating Moon’?”(2) Shen Qianjue replied.


Wang Meng was riding the cow in the dark, using the cell phone to light the way. The cow’s eyes seemed to be better than his considering how it walked forward calmly even though he couldn’t see anything at all.

Herbivores had to eat constantly to maintain their nutrient supply, which meant that this cow was obviously hungry and looking for food.

But there was nothing here.

He leaned on the cow’s back and used the cell phone to read the online shop’s rules.

Although he couldn’t access the internet, he could still see the files offline.

There was no way to initiate any return unless the customer was dissatisfied with the goods.

But how could he make the customer dissatisfied?

It all depended on why the other party wanted to buy him.

He didn’t know why they bought him, but if he thought about it, they technically bought his father first.

When he thought of this, he suddenly became anxious again. It had been a day, but he didn’t know what had happened to his father.

At this time, the cow suddenly let out a cry. He looked up and found that he had reached a dead end.

A very long brick wall had appeared.

It was the same kind of wall that his father was trapped in.

TN Notes:

(1) Shen Qianjue is that chick who went to the grassland with her partner and supposedly backed out. She talked with Wu Xie over the satellite phone. Her name was first mentioned in Chapter 17 “Looking for the Dead in the Sea of Lights” (what I’ve been calling Restart Part 3). Zhang Haiqi is first mentioned in the “Southern Archives”. She’s Zhang Haiyan’s (aka Little Brother Zhang’s) godmother and raised/trained him. She made her first real entrance in Chapter 44 of the “Southern Archives”.

(2) Rotating Moon was mentioned in the extra “The Yueshang Thirteen”.


When not cracking up at poor Baishe, this was literally my face working on both chapters as I scrambled to remember where all these mfing people were from:

Guess that’s what we get with such a big universe. Thank god for ctrl+f hahahaha

  1. OMG so many people i didn’t remember and I’m not sure if I care about. Thank you so much for taking the time to look for them! You are a savior!

    And Baishe is sold!!!! OMG that really cracked me up!!! And Wang Meng riding the cow!!! I’m dying! That’s what happens when Kan Jian is the one making the plans

    BTW where is our iron triangle while everyone else is in trouble? On their vacation?

    Thank you so much for your dedication and hard work


  2. “Hang in there someone will kidnap you soon.” This was most reassuring sentence he could say to the poor guy.
    So many characters add to this story. And I wonder who is that tall girl in the black.

    Liked by 1 person

  3. omg, Zhang Haiqi is still alive!!! Does that mean the Zhangs managed to find a cure for the poison that was causing her to age rapidly in South Sea Archives? After Poker Face’s bold proclamation in the main novels where it made it seem like he was one of a last few Zhangs, suddenly we have all these Zhangs coming out of the woodwork haha.
