In the next second, before Su Jinzhi’s eyes appeared a pile of digital panels made of electron particles of light that did not belong to this era, which clearly marked out the tasks he needed to accomplish in this world-!

After reading these names, Su Jinzhi felt that he could only see darkness, “I have to save so many people?!”
Number One asked him, “Is that a lot?”
“How is it not a lot?” Su Jinzhi asked it rhetorically. “In the last world, it was enough to play with me using one Qin Yezhou. This time around there are nine of them, and there’s actually a mission to save myself?”
“Don’t panic, there are send-off targets.” Number One corrected him, “And you’re not to save yourself, rather, you are going to save Jun Changle.”
Su Jinzhi said, “What’s the difference? Isn’t Jun Changle now me?”
Number One said, “Yeah, so you have to live a good life and fulfill Jun Changle’s wishes in his heart.”
Su Jinzhi then said, “How am I supposed to know what Jun Changle wants?”
Number One snorted coldly, “What’s the difference? Aren’t you Jun Changle now, how can you not know what you want?”
Su Jinzhi, “……”
Number One went on to say, “Zero’s heart aches for you, so we’ve already skipped the ‘whipping’ and ‘tattooing’ plotlines that caused the original Jun Changle so much pain that he wished to die for you. So be content, host.”
A tattoo? Su Jinzhi remembered the man he saw after he had woken up last time and what he had said to him. He was suddenly alarmed, so he immediately ran to the copper mirror on the north side of the house.
The ancient people’s mirror-making techniques were not yet well-developed, but even from such a blurred and distorted bronze mirror, Su Jinzhi could also see how beautiful the person in the mirror was — the eyebrows and eyes were still his own original appearance! However, it was even more exquisite and dense than his original one, a single glance was enough to charm one’s soul away.
The man in the mirror had eyebrows like distant mountains, long eyelashes like a butterfly’s wings, pupils like peach petals, with a touch of faint red blush at the end of his eyes in a rich spring color, matching with the blood-red crying mole right below his eyes. The skin exposed from the neck down was like an exceptionally fine jade under the light of the candle, glowing with a lustrous, glossy, gentle and beautiful soft color. A branch of flower buds spread from his back to the right side of his collarbone, which was really bewitching. His long, raven-feathered hair heavily sank behind him. Although his face still had the tenderness of a youth, one could imagine how pretty and flirtatious he would be when he was fully grown.
Su Jinzhi couldn’t help raising his hand and gently caress the peony bud at his collarbone. However, the skin touched by his fingertips was not as smooth and delicate as people would have imagined, it was slightly raised and rough to the touch.
Jun Changle was sold by that group of bandits from Chongluo to Zhuhua, and the first time the current owner of the Huaqi House, Li Feng, saw him was at the human trafficking market. He immediately bought him and brought him back to the Huaqi House, and had the peony tattooed on half of his body.
The tree peony was the most beautiful under the heavens and the most fragrant on the earth.
All the hosts at the Huaqi House had various types of flower tattoos to correspond to their own characteristics: Li Feng looked gentle, so his tattoo was of a peach blossom, bright but not delicate; Jun Changle’s looks was so gorgeous that only the peony, the king of flowers, could match him.
Everyone knew that on the back of the number one beauty of the Zhuhua Kingdom, Hua Wuyan, was a tree peony tattoo in full bloom, which was usually a gorgeous orange-red and pale yellow. Only when he was happily in love that it would turn deeper as his body became more passionate, and all of them would bloom and turn very red at the summit of extreme bliss.
Like himself, he was an outstanding beauty and exceptionally peerless that everyone in the world wished to die on his body.
Everyone said this tree peony was the most beautiful one under the heavens, but people didn’t know that this blood carving tattoo was made to cover up the scars of the whip that the bandits inflicted on Jun Changle when he was caught in the den of thieves after his failed escape. It was not enough to just dip a needle in dye and continuously pierced to create such a beautiful image of the peony tree in full bloom on a body riddled with scars. It was necessary to pluck out the original scarred skin that was too raised and ugly, and start tattooing when it had not yet healed. Furthermore, no numbing medicine could be used during the tattooing process. They could only bite the wooden handle to bear the pain of the ten thousand needles, when the new flesh healed well, then it would be pierced with a new picture again.
In this way, the person with this tattoo usually had a light-colored flower budding on their back, but when the blood qi surged, another tattoo would appear on the flesh under the skin.
The two flowers overlapped each other, with all the buds in full bloom, the fragrance of the flowers were overflowing and the blooms were spread colorfully, making this a truly magnificent peony tree picture in full bloom.
However, as beautiful as this blood sculpture was, in the entire Huaqi House, it was only unique to the original owner’s body alone. After all, the tattooing process was so bloody and painful that very few hosts could survive it, and the original has no choice but to endure it.
But even if he were to do it all over again, Su Jinzhi would still be powerless to stop the wheels of fate from rolling forward for Jun Changle.
When he woke up, everything had already happened, and Jiang Lishan still forgot about him and he still entered the Huaqi House. This magnificent Peony, which drove him into the abyss of no return, eventually blossomed all over his back and was penetrated deeply inside his body.
 上辈子 (Shàngbèizi): meaning last life, former incarnation. For this purpose, this TL will use ‘original’ to fit the context/theme.
 Huaqi House.
 I forgot, host here means all the… eh… male prostitutes… in that Huaqi House.
 I think it was talking about ‘getting excited’. hahahaha. no lah, maybe excited in many senses… such as getting work up. kek. Don’t mind me…
