I’ve just had a HUGE revelation about 19 days, based on this new chapter and He Tian and Mo’s relationship. Here’s my analysis and feels.
So it’s not news to anyone that these two are both excessively violent and bullying types. Redhead is the definition of a delinquent who hates school and his peers. He Tian is a detached bad boy who gets a rise out of dominating. However, their interactions and story arc together are vastly changing them both and I believe Old Xian just made a loud and clear HELLO THIS IS AN EVENT THAT IS CHANGING THEIR DYNAMIC, in these past few chapters.
Before we knew Redhead’s name, he and He Tian’s relationship was based on challenging, threatening, overpowering, and then Redhead being reluctantly submissive. Using fear and force, He Tian acquired Redhead as his personal bitch. But through all that (fight, sandwich #1, ball twisting, rolling on hill, dinner, note, etc.), they developed an interest and estranged investment in each other by being together and exploring each other a bit during it all.
Then, in the chapter where He Tian was running to flick off his bro and passed redhead, a subtle shift happened. Redhead was CURIOUS in what He Tian was doing. He literally followed him. I believe he did it simply out of interest in He Tian, not with some hope of getting info to use against him. He Tian caught and threatened him, only to realize how the fear he established in Redhead was so very strong it was causing him to shake. This caused yet another (conscious) subtle shift in He Tian, who playfully squished Redhead’s titties out of his concern/desire to calm him. But what that also revealed is that He Tian is attracted to Redhead. What with the lips, and then the tits? Despite the threatening, the subconscious subtext here was quite loud.
THEN WE GOT A NAME FOR REDHEAD. Which I believe is the HUGE signpost signaling that He Tian no longer views Redhead as an OBJECT. He views him as a real person, who he also is attracted to!! He SOUGHT out his name and then verified it, teasingly. Revealing his name was probably the most purposefully placed event ever.
So we now arrive at the most recent chapter. Let’s not forget that Mo was STARING at He Tian. Then He Tian confronted him playfully only to get challenged (like the old patterns pre-name). He Tian shut it down by calling him on his shit. I believe He Tian knows and accepts his attraction to Mo, and now that he knows that AND values him as a person, he is pushing the boundaries a bit more, varying his tactics and interactions. Mo, however, is not aware of his attraction to He Tian, and yet it’s revealed in his actions. Being uncomfortable when He Tian says “like me more and more,” following, staring, etc… Mo said how He Tian’s saliva would be disgusting on his bottle to which He Tian both brought up kissing and then KISSED him. This going to act as a huge catalyst, I believe, for Mo’s innermost feelings. Whether he wanted it or not in the moment, there’s no denying that Mo felt He Tian’s lips on his and it sparked/will spark what’s inside. Old Xian has an insanely accurate grasp on suppressed and denied feelings being revealed through action. Both in this relationship and our main babies this rings true.
Forced? Nah. Shocking and out of nowhere? You betcha. But 10000% genuine and driven from real feelings and attraction. He Tian wouldn’t just shove his tongue down anyone’s throat. GIVE ME MOOOORE.
You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun, Kal. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.

Things I am worried will happen in the next 19 days update.
1. Mo GuanShan crying about the kiss
2. He tian being an insensitive jerk.
3. People seeing both of them and bullying Mo GuanShan
4. Mo GuanShan fangirls bullying him.
5. Mo GuanShan running away from He tian.
6. Mo GuanShan saying he hates He tian now.
7. He tian just doing it to tease Mo GuanShan
8. He tian laughing after the kiss, and leaving Mo GuanShan crying.
9. Their relationship progression ends and they have to work on it again
10. He tian and Mo GuanShan separating.
if number 10 happens I will seriously go into depression or something. You guys don’t understand how much they mean to me. Especially, Mo GuanShan he came into my life unexpectedly and now I am not willing to let him go.
I am sure even the people who hate him can see themselves sometimes in him.
Honestly, if anything like what happen with Jian Yi and Zhan happens afterwards my heart would break into a millions pieces.
I can’t see Mo GuanShan crying he is so strong he didn’t even cry when he was getting beat up or many other times when he has had it worst. Mo GuanShan, is strong please don’t let the kiss be his breaking point.
Me to Jian Yi x Zheng Xi:
“Wow. I just really hope that they end up a real couple in the end. They’re just so precious and they deserve one another so much.”
Me to He Tian x Guan Shan:
“YEAH FUCK HIM IN THE ASS.”
