Zhu Kang woke up to a sharp pain on his right cheek. He slowly opened his eyes to meet the raging eyes of a younger looking woman. She was panting loudly and crying simultaneously. Which, to be honest, looked cute.
"You lying son of a bitch! I hate you! I hate you so much!" she proceeded to beat him up with her little purse.
Zhu Kang stood still processing his environment. He was standing in the middle of a busy restaurant. Most of the patrons were glancing his way with a look of shock and disbelief. They kept murmuring to themselves.
'What in the world.....'
Suddenly, a sharp pain of the bag hitting his forearm registered in his brain.
'Pain..... I feel pain!'
His eyes went wide. "Oh my god," he touched his cheeks as well. His right cheek was slightly warm and stinging to touch. The feeling felt surreal and awesome. He continued pinching his stinging cheeks.
"Oh my god!!!! Pain!!! I feel pain!!!" he laughed in glee. 'I am back bitches!!!'
"Y—you devil!! You fucking cheating son of a bitch," she kept hitting him with the sling bag of hers.
Zhu Kang smilingly enjoyed the pain.
'This feeling..... I thought I would never feel it in my entire life again!'
His eyes started to tear up in joy.
Seeing this, the girl started to sob even loudly.
"Kang, I hope you die in a ditch," she shouted finally and left the restaurant.
"No, no don't curse at me, I want to live," he whispered, looking at her at her stiff back.
She glanced back one last time and showed him the middle finger. "Go fuck yourself!"
"I hope you have a great day too," he happily waved at her.
He sat back down on the soft cushion and rubbed his butt against it. 'It's soft, unlike my stupid system chair!!! I am really out of there.'
He held his head, laughing to himself.
"Yes..." he glanced up to see a hesitant waiter next to him.
"Your bill...," he said, handing him a black tab.
Zhu Kang confidently took it from him and glanced inside. "t—thousand!! What did we eat for thousand dollars!!!"
"It included the damage sir.." the waiter pointed at the broken vase and plates on the ground. "Please make the due payment."
Zhu Kang sighed. He searched his pockets... and ended up coming empty. "Wait, a moment." He sat up and searched all of his pockets, but still nothing.
He stood up and pulled out the pocket slots.
Nada, not a single penny.
He softly gulped. "Do you keep tabs...." he awkwardly laughed.
The waiter gave him a cold look.
Fifteen minutes later:
"Here," the waiter came back with another load of dishes all stacked up till it hid his face.
"You have got to be kidding me. How much longer are you planning to make me work for?" Zhu Kang mumbled, wiping his sweaty forehead.
"Until you have paid your dues. Now put your back to it," he glared at him and walked out to the kitchen.
Zhu Kang pityingly washed the dishes. He placed it carefully to the side. "Hundred down.... hundred more to go," he glanced at the growing pile in agony. "I stand corrected this world sucks..."
After three hours of hard work, he was finally let off with a warning.
By them the sun had gone down and it was dark outside. He did not know a clue about his identity, did not have money or a place to sleep...
He aimlessly walked around until he came across a police station. He decided to go check his identity or at least get help.
As soon as he stepped inside the door, a young female cop approached him with a warm smile. "What can I do for you, young man?"
"umm.... I lost my memory and my wallet. I don't know who I am."
The whole precinct looked his way with a blank look.
The lady tried smiling, but her lips twitched softly. "Can you brief me on how you lost your memory?"
"I was hit." Zou Yue showed her his cheeks. "I think its brain damage,"
The lady cop lost her smile. "Young man, it's not time to play around. All of us are busy with our works already,"
"But I'm telling the truth. I don't know who I am. Help me please!!" he begged her with tears in his eyes.
Immediately, the cop's expression became soft.
He subtly poked his eyes and made it water even more. 'If begging and requesting doesn't work, crying will.... most of the time.'
She led him to the waiting area and sat him down.
Zhu Kang watched them whisper something to themselves. 'They don't believe me at all.'
The lady walked back to him with a coffee in hand. "Can you tell me the last thing you remember?"
"I was in a restaurant with a girl she beat me with her purse and called me a cheater. After that she left without paying the bill I did not have my wallet with me anywhere so I had to wash the dishes for three hours," he said in one breath.
The cop just blinked. "W—what was the restaurants' name?"
" 'Illoise foods' can you find my identity please..."
The cop swiftly pulled out her phone and searched it up. "It's a big place that needs reservations they don't take walk-ins. Good, if we check their records, we might be able to find your identity,"
"Thank you so much," he looked at her with a bright smile.
The lady cob coughed loudly. "Don't worry; I will get you home safely,"
In just ten minutes, they came back with the information. Turns out, this body's name was also Zhu Kang. He was a starving college student.
"The table was registered in my name?" Zhu Kang pinched his cheeks tightly. 'How can a starving student book such a posh restaurant? And my wallet.... something sounds very fishy.'
"Yes... she was your supposed girlfriend. Do you want to press charges against her?"
"No, she was cute," he thanked her earnestly and left the precinct.
His college dorm was close by. He happily walked there with a small hop on his step.
Zhu Kang entered the campus with a wide smile on his face. All along the way he noticed stares of girls falling on his relentlessly. He smiled back at them. One girl actually fainted.
'Why are they reacting like this? Do I look so ugly?' he touched his soft face. He ran back to his dorm and into the single attached bathroom. The small mirror hung there.
He peered at his own reflection. Actually, he had a very handsome face. His face leaned towards European side than Asian. His eyes were a lighter shade of brown, almost similar to honey. His nose was sharp and straight.
His lips, though...
They were slightly on the plumper side but when he smiled, they beautifully revealed his straight pearly whites.
But what surprised him was that this face looked almost 70 percent similar to his own.
"No wonder that girl fainted. I have my own face handsome face back." He mumbled, touching his face happily.
But suddenly he remembered why he was here. "Who were those black clothed people though? why were they attacking the systems?" He whispered.
"It's better to be cautious. Let's not stick out," he whispered, peering into his own brown eyes. "Let's go Zhu Kang lets survive this world and live happily," he pulled down his hair and covered his dazzling eyes.
"Zhu Kang, don't hog the bathroom," someone shouted from out the door.
He sighed. "God, they won't let me appreciate my rebirth.."
He walked out the door to see a small young man. When he said small, he meant really small. He was just about 5 feet. He had cute curls all over his head.
"You are in the way dude," he glanced up.
Zhu Kang peered into his green eyes skeptically. 'Where have I seen these eyes....I am pretty sure I've seen this person somewhere,' he thought as he watched the door close behind him.
Then it suddenly came to him.
'Love gel!!! Oh my god, it's the love gel guy!!!!'
