AM: Chapter 51
Pei Shaoze had read the original novel ‘Accidental Mark’ the moment he entered the book world. There was never any mention of omegas becoming pregnant in the original novel. Pei Shaoze never expected there would be such a strange setting as ‘male pregnancy!’
He always thought that the difference between alphas and omegas was like number 1 and 0 in the gay circle in reality. The former was the gong and the latter was the shou. There were different scents i.e. pheromones that could be distinguished and attracted them to each other.
His attitude toward Cheng Xia during this period of time was like an elder toward a junior of the same sex. In his eyes, Cheng Xia was a lively and hardworking young man. Even if the two of them had some physical contact, he never had the wrong thoughts.
Now the agent actually told him that the omega star was pregnant? Since other omega stars could get pregnant, could Cheng Xia also get pregnant? Then what about when he slept with Cheng Xia last night?
The more he thought about it, the more he had a headache. He found that some of the rules of this world were far beyond his understanding. He had believed that alphas were equal to number 1 and omegas were equal to number 0 while pheromones were equal to body odor. It seemed that all of this was wrong. There were some hidden settings that weren’t unlocked at all.
Pei Shaoze frowned as he read through the information on the Internet and became more and more surprised. They weren’t only omega males in this world but also alpha females. After checking, the ‘ABO Physiology Science’ that was found at the end made Pei Shaoze feel numb.
There were alpha men and women, beta men and women, and omega men and women. Strictly speaking, there were six genders in the world. Alphas couldn’t get pregnant but they could make betas or omegas pregnant. Betas had a relatively low fertility rate but they made up the vast majority of human beings. Omegas were the rarest ones with the highest fertility rate. In particular, once they were marked by an alpha, it was easy to have a baby if they didn’t use contraceptives.
Pei Shaoze, “……”
So Cheng Xia was actually a rare species that could get pregnant and have children?!
Pei Shaoze had met Cheng Xia the first night he entered the world of the novel. Cheng Xia hadn’t been wearing clothes at the time and he had seen some of Cheng Xia. Just by appearance, Cheng Xia was a man like him. Why could men get pregnant? How did they get pregnant? Was this a science fiction or fantasy world instead of an urban world like he thought?
Pei Shaoze patiently read the physiological science and finally understood. Omega males looked like men but their inner core was different. There was a magical space inside their bodies. When marking, an alpha must form a knot deep inside the omega…
It sounded a bit complicated. Pei Shaoze’s brain hurt when he saw this. He held his forehead to calm himself down while digesting the strange knowledge that suddenly poured into his mind.
Once Pei Shaoyan woke up, he found that his older brother was sitting in front of the laptop looking up information. His expression was extremely serious. His dark eyes were deep and there was a trace of bewilderment in them. Pei Shaoyan curiously walked over to take a look and found that his older brother had opened up a document.
[Into the science: the detailed process of an alpha completely marking an omega.]
Pei Shaoyan’s eyes lit up. His older brother finally couldn’t help wanting to mark Cheng Xia and had started to review high school physiology class! Sure enough, it was the right decision to leave last night and let Cheng Xia take care of his older brother. It was easiest to let go of one’s guard when sick. Cheng Xia tenderly took care of his older brother. His brother felt soft and perhaps his feelings heated up.
It seemed that the two of them would complete the marking once the drama was over. However, his older brother’s temperament meant he wouldn’t allow Cheng Xia to have children for the time being. After all, Cheng Xia was only 18 years old and had a bright future. His career in the entertainment industry had just begun. Maybe in a few years when Cheng Xia got a firm foothold in the entertainment industry, it wouldn’t be too late to have a baby. At that time, would there be a baby calling him ‘uncle?’
Pei Shaoyan had already started to imagine the scene of taking his young nephew to the playground.
Pei Shaoze soon found that his younger brother was smiling very strangely while standing next to him. He followed his younger brother’s gaze to the laptop…
It was over. The misunderstanding was even deeper and explaining it now wouldn’t make it clear at all. His younger brother thought he was checking these things because he wanted to mark Cheng Xia. Pei Shaoze rubbed his temples and whispered. “It’s not what you think. I just want to know some physiology knowledge in this area.”
Pei Shaoyan smiled. “I understand.” He came over in a mysterious manner. “Brother, do you want a movie? There are many cartoons on my hard drive which are more detailed and vivid than this type of text.”
Pei Shaoze’s face was stiff. “…No, thank you.”
He didn’t want to continue this strange topic. He turned off his laptop and stood up. “I have something to do and I’m going out. If the crew asks, tell them there is some trouble with the company that I need to solve.”
“I know.” Pei Shaoyan scratched his head. “Then what should I do in the afternoon? Go to the set?”
“Yes, go to the set to watch and contact me if you have any questions.”
After lunch, Pei Shaoze called Xu Sitong and inquired, “Where is Shu Yue now?”
Xu Sitong answered, “President Pei, he and I are at the Ya’an International Hotel.”
Shu Yue happened to be shooting a science fiction movie at the Ya’an Movies and Television Studio. Last night, the crew finished shooting and he confessed his secret to his agent after the finale party. It involved the important matter of withdrawing from the circle. Xu Sitong couldn’t make decisions so she anxiously called the boss for advice.
Pei Shaoze thought about it. “I happen to be in Ya’an. Tell him that I’ll come over now to talk to him.”
Xu Sitong was overjoyed and hurriedly stood up. “President Pei, I’ll call Shu Yue and wait for you in the cafe on the third floor of the hotel.”
“Yes, it will probably take me an hour to drive there.” Pei Shaoze looked down at his watch. “See you in the cafe at 2:30 in the afternoon.”
Ya’an International Hotel was located near the Movies and Television Studio. Many big stars would choose to stay at this five-star hotel. Pei Shaoze asked the driver to speed up. Once he arrived at the door of the hotel, he found that it was full of reporters.
“Sister Xu, is it true that Shu Yue is pregnant?!”
“Will Interstellar Route be his last movie?”
“Miss Xu, can I ask about the identity of the alpha who marked Shu Yue? Can you reveal it?”
Xu Sitong was anxious as she was surrounded by reporters. Suddenly, a tall alpha walked over to the reporters. He looked calmly at the reporters and indifferently told them, “We will hold a press conference about Shu Yue. Please go back first.”
Then he protected Xu Sitong and rushed out of the circle of reporters. As the boss of an entertainment company, he had seen too many scenes like this. The reporters were stunned when they saw the unfamiliar alpha and someone soon reacted. “President Pei, are you President Pei of Tianxuan?”
”President Pei, what do you want to say about Shu Yue…”
Pei Shaoze frowned and asked the security guard to close the hotel door, isolating the noise outside. The two of them walked side by side to the elevator. Xu Sitong was in a state of shock until President Pei asked, “What’s the matter?”
She recovered and explained, “Shu Yue went to the hospital to check his pregnancy. I don’t know how but it was exposed online. I just wanted to go out to meet you when I was surrounded by reporters. I didn’t expect them to find out that Shu Yue was pregnant and then rush to the hotel.”
Pei Shaoze heard the other side naturally mention a man being pregnant and felt very uncomfortable. Still, the problem was in front of him and he had to solve it. He frowned and asked, “Where is Shu Yue?”
Xu Sitong brought Pei Shaoze to the coffee shop on the third floor. A handsome man was sitting on the seat in front of them. He was around 25 years old with fair skin. He was wearing a thin white t-shirt and light coffee-colored trousers paired with clean leather shoes. He was slender and well-proportioned, gentle and elegant.
Pei Shaoze really couldn’t connect such a man with the word ‘pregnancy.’ His eyes couldn’t help sweeping over the other person’s abdomen. It was very flat and there was no sign of bulging at all. Would it bulge in a few months? Pei Shaoze was very confused.
Xu Sitong walked over with President Pei. Shu Yu nodded politely and greeted them. “President Pei.”
Pei Shaoze sat down opposite him. There was a moment of silence before Pei Shaoze asked tentatively, “Are you… really pregnant?”
Shu Yue’s eyes curved slightly in a smile and he looked very happy. “Yes. My boyfriend marked me and I forgot to take contraceptives. I joined the filming crew soon after and only found out last month. I wanted to finish the movie so I didn’t tell Sister Xu. You should know that omegas can’t work intensively when pregnant. He has also proposed to me. I want to get married, have children and fade out of the entertainment industry.”
Pei Shaoze, “……”
Should he know? He really didn’t know?! In the past, there were female celebrities in the entertainment industry who got pregnant and gave birth to children. However, in this world, male celebrities could also get pregnant and give birth to children?
Pei Shaoze looked complicated. He was silent for a few seconds before saying, “With your talent and the resources Tianxuan can give you, you can have higher achievements. Don’t you think it is a pity to give up now?”
Shu Yue shook his head. “President Pei, have you ever really liked someone?”
Pei Shaoze shook his head.
Shu Yue smiled softly and spoke slowly. “There aren’t so many people in the world who can have the best of both worlds. Once you really fall in love with someone, you can actually give up something for him. Acting is indeed a career I like very much but I would rather give it up if it prevents me and my spouse from seeing each other several times in the year, getting together less and less, and making it difficult for me to take care of our children in the future.”
He paused and added, “I’ve made enough money over the years and my fiance is a surgeon and his income isn’t low. Now I just want to be with him and raise our children. I will pay the liquidated damages in accordance with the contract. You don’t have to persuade me anymore.”
Pei Shaoze heard these gentle but calm words and was silent for a long time.
For all these years, Pei Shaoze only had his career in his mind. In his opinion, it was right for a man to have a strong career and to earn money to support his family. In reality, he worked hard to turn the Pei Company into a giant in the entertainment industry, making countless celebrities. After coming to this world, he also devoted himself to business and hoped to make Cheng Xia a star.
However, a person’s life wasn’t just their career. There were also feelings.
He had never liked a person and never given up anything for his beloved. Now Shu Yue’s words caused his views to shake. He couldn’t help thinking of Cheng Xia. What if one day in the future, Cheng Xia also had a loved one, was marked by his lover, and became pregnant. Would Cheng Xia make the same choice? Would he also retreat like Shu Yue?
Pei Shaoze’s heart was indescribably uncomfortable at the thought that Cheng Xia would give up all of this for an alpha. No, he must not let Cheng Xia be marked by those alphas. He must protect Cheng Xia.
Pei Shaoze took a deep breath and looked at the male omega in front of him. “I respect your personal choice and will terminate the contract according to legal procedures. If you regret it and want to come back, you can return to Tianxuan to find us.”
Shu Yue smiled and said, “Thank you, President Pei.”
Xu Sitong looked surprised. She thought that President Pei would persuade her artist but he just came to terminate the contract? They left the coffee store and she couldn’t help wondering, “President Pei, you’re just going to let him go?”
Pei Shaoze answered casually, “He has made up his mind and there is no need to force him to keep him. There are many potential newcomers in Tianxuan. Shu Yue might be leaving but there will be others.”
Xu Sitong thought about it carefully and understood Pei Shaoze’s meaning. “Yes, then I will take him back to the company to find the legal department.”
Pei Shaoze nodded. “Yes, choose a time to hold a press conference to make things clear so as to not affect Shu Yue’s reputation. Shu Yue has made a lot of money for Tianxuan in the past few years. Don’t give him a hard time and separate peacefully.”
On the way back, Pei Shaoze fell into thought again.
Omegas became pregnant after being marked by an alpha. Cheng Xia was obviously the same. On the surface, he was a male but his inner core was different. He had always treated Cheng Xia as a ‘same-sex junior previously and did things such as touching Cheng Xia’s head, holding Cheng Xia when he went out, and letting Cheng Xia sleep with him.
In Cheng Xia’s view, was his behavior a bit… perverted? No wonder why Cheng Xia blushed. It wasn’t due to the pheromones at all. His behavior had completely crossed the line.
Pei Shaoze’s ears turned red and a trace of embarrassment rose in his heart. He absolutely couldn’t let anyone know that he and Cheng Xia had slept in the same bed or everyone would think Cheng Xia was already his person. They would definitely have crooked thoughts and think he had already done something to Cheng Xia.
Was it time to apologize to Cheng Xia? However, it was really hard to talk about these things. He couldn’t say, ‘I didn’t know a man could get pregnant and I was careless. I’m sorry.’
Cheng Xia would think he had a problem with his brain, right? In the entire world, he was probably the only one who didn’t have the common sense that ‘omegas can give birth.’ The misunderstanding got deeper and explaining it would just make things worse.
Pei Shaoze held his forehead helplessly. He thought about it and couldn’t come up with a solution. He could only fix his mistakes and slowly correct the misunderstandings of those around him. Having been the boss for so many years, it was the first time he encountered this type of situation that made him ‘at a loss.’
The author has something to say:
President Pei finally realized that his touches and hugging Cheng Xia during this time were actually very abnormal hahaha!
Poor President Pei 🙂
Hahaha! Now you realize. Thanks for the chapter
“Pei Shaoyan had already started to imagine the scene of taking his young nephew to the playground.” Hahaha his imagination is running wild there xD
“Pei Shaoze really couldn’t connect such a man with the word ‘pregnancy.’ His eyes couldn’t help sweeping over the other person’s abdomen. It was very flat and there was no sign of bulging at all. Would it bulge in a few months? Pei Shaoze was very confused.” LMFAOOOOO this was how I reacted when I came across abt omegaverse too .
THANK U FOR TRANSLATING!!
I feel bad for him. It’s not like he even read this novel or any ABO novels so he really had no clue. And it seems the novel he read after he got there wasn’t detailed in this ABO stuff. I mean it must be very difficult. But he adapts well. I just will feel sad when he probably starts distancing himself from Cheng Xia. I really feel he likes him, not just a raising a seedling thing. Also he may be older IRL but here he isn’t that much older. But I totally get seeing Cheng Xia as a kid still. They have 10 years together so…
His reactions are the exact same as mine,Lol.I was Soo confused and baffled by this.
