T/N: wearing a green hat” (戴绿帽子) refers to a woman who cheats on her lover
She has a better understanding after Xiao Mingluo’s narrative.
Han Qilu didn't want to forgive Mankuai after returning to China. However, he found out she's been pregnant for three months. She was pregnant with that man's child. He was Xiang Mankuai's first love. Han Qilu didn't know she's been wearing a green hat.
Han Liuhai confirmed the news, but Han Qilu didn't believe him, so he called Xiang Mankuai. Finally, she admits to cheating on him. She said he wasn't mature enough. And because their fathers were not on friendly terms, she concluded they had no future together.
Since then, Han Qilu drank all day. He drank so much liquor, he developed gastic bleeding. It wasn't until Jiang Yuan of him being constantly drunk did Qilu sober. But after sobering, he developed a hostility toward strangers around him.
Han Liuhai has recounted the same story except he concealed what Xiang Mankuai did.
"Actually, An Chuxia, because of you, I think Han Qilu might find it in his heart to love again… ."
"You don't need to say such needless things." She didn't hesitate to interrupt Mingluo's proposition. "I told Han Qilu, water and fire are incompatible; absolutely impossible! In regard to Xiang Mankuai, I'll pretend I didn't hear the story… So… since it's still early, take me to your house and meet your family."
Her expression is relaxed, but in her heart, she feels inexplicably depressed. She tells herself this is just an illusion, just another illusion.
Ling Hanyu bats his eyelashes as he opens his eyes slowly. Although he is a distance away from An Chuxia and Xiao Mingluo, his keen ears can still hear everything. When he witnessed Xiang Mankuai's betrayal, he was actually angrier than Han Qilu. He wished he could've cut off her neck, but Han Qilu just points.
For the longest time, he witnessed Qilu ruin his body. He initially regretted not strangling the slut.
He smiles as he opens his eyes. This incident is from the past. He doesn't have to brood over it. Standing straight, he fishes out the key from his pocket. "Mingluo, congratulations on defeating the megalomaniac, Han Qilu."
Xiao Mingluo shrugs. "Take Chuxia to your house so she can familiarize herself. I'll go… to Atlantis and take a look. Han Qilu must be there, drinking." As for Chuxia, he won't make a veiled attack reminding him of Mankuai's existence. As he's witnessed, Chuxia has made him forget of her existence. One day, he'll completely forget her… .
"Come, my little maid, my household is very big." Ling Hanyu jokingly glances her way as he leads her toward the stadium door. An Chuxia takes several steps forward before suddenly turning back. A pair of clear eyes stare carefully at Xiao Mingluo. He seems to be staring back.
He boldly stares at her straight hair. Suddenly feeling awkward, the corners of his mouth pull. "What do you want to say?"
An Chuxia recovers from her gaze and laughs. "I realized you actually don't look so… bad. You're a good person."
Embarrassed by her words, he squints and sets aside his emotions, leaving only a moment to tease. "Chuxia, classmate, is it because I helped you once… Have you fallen in love with me?"CHAPTER 174 Ling Hanyu is Gay
T/Thoughts: I don't usually put a photo on the 2nd posted chapter but I thought you'd like to see a photo of Tang Yin, the anime character Hanyu thinks of when he sees Chuxia.
Also, I'm not fond of this title or the author's idea of stereotyping. If I had a choice, I wouldn't add this chapter in. However, it is integral in the story's progression. So, bear with me. I'd also like to say I support the LGBTQ community and it is not my intent to discriminate or offend anyone because of this post.

T/N: Sister Furong a Chinese blogger who gained notoriety in 2005 for posting on BBS about her struggles in entering universities. She also blogged about sex and relationships.
An Chuxia takes back her compliment. "Rotten wood cannot be carved." She turns and runs out. As he watches Chuxia leave, the hint of playfulness suddenly disappears from Xiao Mingluo's face, leaving him perplexed.
"Good person?" he mutters. This is the first time in his whole life he hears such a compliment. An Chuxia… She's really special. Lifting his feet, footsteps fall firmly toward the gymnasium doors.
Sunlight fills the entire world. An Chuxia sits on the hood of the red convertible, sizing it up. Isn't this type the kind that appeals to women? Really, Ling Hanyu is gay! She confesses he is quite cerebral. It would be a life goal to follow after Ling Hanyu if one obtains awareness.
After all, in real life, she's not really met one; it was only in novels she has encountered gay (characters). This has really opened her horizon… .
A yellow lamborghini pulls parallel to their car. An Chuxia looks back and happens to see Xiao Mingluo knocking behind the peach-decorated window. He yells loudly to Ling Hanyu, "Remember to send her home. I'm headed to Atlantis."
He doesn't wait for Ling Hanyu to respond. The lamborghini quickly speeds away, quickly vanishing from their view. Wow, that car… it's handsome! Certainly, the car she sits on is also very graceful. The wind against Hanyu's forehead reveals a very good and smooth forehead.
Taking a split-second glance, Ling Hanyu says lightly, "You look like a person I like."
"Who?" she asks, smiling. She awaits joyfully for Ling Hanyu to mention the name of some superstar but actually hears him faintly say, "Sister Furong after being cleaned up since she's a mess."
"Hey- !" She raises her hand, but suddenly remembers he is driving and cannot make any violent contact with the driver. Otherwise, they will die.
He laughs in a low voice. Ling Hanyu recalls his thoughts in earnest. He's cracking a joke. What he actually thinks is she looks like the protagonist, Tang Yin, from the anime Ikoku Meiro no Kurowāze.
Silence falls. Suddenly, An Chuxia asks, "Xiao Mingluo mentioned Atlantis. What is it? As far as I know, Atlantis is located in the submerged ruins of the seabed."
Ling Hanyu quickly raises an eyebrow. "You're so knowledgeable and yet you don’t know that Atlantis is A City's upscale bar?"
Upscale bar? She's sure it's Han's or Xiao's or Ling's bar. She sighs emotionally. Before closing her eyes, she says, "Um."
Looking wearily at An Chuxia, Ling Hanyu didn't say it was the only "um" one. He drives earnestly. Ten minutes later, Chuxia wakes up, itching.
Ah choo-! She finally couldn't resist. She sneezes loudly, rubbing her eyes to see what's happening. The result? She sees a handful of her hair pinched between Ling Hanyu's fingers, tickling her nose lightly. As she opens her eyes, Ling Hanyu immediately lets go of her hair. He sits back and says lightly, "We're here."
He suspects she's an idiot. How is it, every time she falls asleep, she sheds tears. He sees it… It makes his heart feel funny. Despite calling out to her several times, she doesn't react. So he played the heart atmosphere, taking her hair to scratch her nose.
