After Lin Yiyi came online early in the morning, she routinely went to Annan’s house to stream her perspective.
As Annan’s bodyguard, she stayed at Annan’s house every day out of her duty;
As Annan’s only guard, she didn’t guard the door but stayed by Annan’s side and stayed on alert to protect him. Hence, it was pretty understandable for her to be in his room.
For the same reason, she kept a watchful eye on Annan. Sometimes, she would approach Annan and chat for a while, which wasn’t odd in the eyes of others.
Aside from the silent, deadly stare Kafni often watched from afar, Annan didn’t resist Yiyi’s increasingly intimate gestures. He even gradually handed over some important tasks to her.
For example, last night, Annan went to the previous warehouse to perform a ritual.
Lin Yiyi had stayed on guard at the door to eliminate potential external interference to the ritual. However, she was also the person bringing the materials required for the ritual to Annan.
Although those little things weren’t too heavy, Annan wasn’t too weak to move them.
However, she didn’t feel comfortable watching a cute shota  with the height only at her chest level carrying those items while she stayed watching at the side. She didn’t like it when she was just strolling at the back while her boss was working.
So even if Annan didn’t ask her for help, Lin Yiyi took the initiative to help Annan move all the things he needed in one go — just like how she did many odd jobs in the viscount house.
Not only did she clean Annan’s room, but also Kafni’s room beside his.
—Yes, Lin Yiyi wasn’t just harassing Annan. She was also harassing Kafni.
She wasn’t a pure shotacon .
She was also a fangirl attracted by handsome and pretty faces.
She wasn’t only captivated by Annan; she felt the doll-like, introverted Kafni fit her taste. Once Kafni grows older, I can dress her up like a hell girl …
It was just that Lin Yiyi was currently concentrating on producing Annan’s variety show via live streams. Her original purpose was to mock Jiu Er, but the more she got to know Annan, the more she felt that Annan always had a reassuring atmosphere around him. So, the purpose of her live broadcast had become promoting Annan’s fame.
She also took a casual photo of Kafni when that introverted cutie just happened to walk into the camera.
The viscount house had already hired new maids to replenish the lack of manpower, but this did not interfere Lin Yiyi from having her fun. It felt like she was like raising one lovely younger brother and one lovely younger sister. Lin Yiyi would come over when she was free as she worked on her weekly missions and protected the two of them.
No matter it was helping to clean up the room, grabbing the two younger siblings to eat on time, or simple errands, Lin Yiyi enjoyed this “leisure life in another world”.
Of course, her real brother wouldn’t get to enjoy this kind of treatment.
That’s your blood-related little brother.jpg
Suuankou was utterly speechless by it.
But, Lin Yiyi didn’t take care of Kafni and Annan with the thought that “they might die without me”.
Her main goal was to take advantage of them.
Annan and Kafni were both mature and sensible characters. Although they were all in the rebellious period around the age of fourteen, they weren’t spoiled children at all. Moreover, they took care of themselves quite well without relying on Lin Yiyi.
Most importantly, they were all good-looking.
Annan was self-disciplined with a routine. His daily life encompassed practicing swordsmanship, physical training, reading books, drinking tea, and catching up with the latest news; it had the vibe of a retired person who lived a leisurely life. Moreover, he would attend his meal and sleep on time. All in all, he lived a healthy life like Kira Yoshikage  with a well-balanced diet and exercise before going to bed.
Lin Yiyi also found out that Annan was knowledgeable; he could quickly pick up new things.
So much so that Annan could interact with the players in the information age easily. Except for some specific nouns that he couldn’t understand in which she needed to explain, he could follow through the conversations smoothly.
At present, under the “teaching” of Lin Yiyi, Annan could already understand the common words used by many players.
— Of course, this was actually Annan’s acting.
The main goal was to reduce communication barriers so that players wouldn’t feel that “Annan couldn’t understand anyway” and hide something from him. Then, the players would chat with him more, foster a closer relationship, getting rid of estrangement and gaps.
I’m not your grandfather. Is there anything you can’t explain to me?
Lin Yiyi, a player who liked to come over to chat with Annan, was a good precedent. After forming the concept of “Annan accepted the culture of the earth quickly” in other players’ minds, he wouldn’t be easily exposed if he were to say something out accidentally.
Players would only think that “It’s all Sister Hyphen’s fault, being a bad influence to Annan”.
However, the situation wasn’t the same for Kafni.
Her whereabouts could be said to be erratic. She often had her canvas around and went to different places to sketch. Annan could easily find her, but it was challenging when Lin Yiyi was getting Kafni to bed or the dining table.
At first, she thought Kafni was kidnapped, or she left without a word.
It was only later she learned that Kafni had gone to the slums of Rusty Water Street.
Lin Yiyi didn’t even know how she got there. She was like a cat, squatting quietly on the roof, looking at the noisy crowd below, and the people below didn’t even notice that there was another person above them.
Probably because Lin Yiyi would also take care of her, Kafni just threw her a deadly stare from time to time.
Otherwise, Kafni could have made a move because Yiyi was close to Annan.
Kafni gave off the vibe of a cat and a doll to Lin Yiyi. It was just a pity that she hadn’t yet found the skills to lure Kafni, and she was still in a stage where she could barely live with Kafni. There could be any danger descending upon her at any time.
But Annan was a little unusual today.
When Lin Yiyi went there early in the morning, Annan, who was supposed to practice swordsmanship in the yard, sat quietly at the table and stared at the sky.
Lin Yiyi was worried about disturbing Annan and was a little curious.
She stood far away and asked in a low voice, “Your Highness, what are you doing?”
“I’m looking at Delicious Wind Goose’s side.” Annan looked serious, “I feel that he seems to be in some danger. So I plan to take a look at the situation on his side through the contract.”
“Can you see our location directly, Your Highness?” Lin Yiyi was a little surprised.
Before that, she didn’t know that Annan had this ability.
“I can, but I rarely do it because it is a hassle.” Annan turned around and said seriously, “Also, I think that all of you deserve to have your own life and privacy. I don’t want to treat you all as my subordinates, but my friends instead.
“In yesterday’s ritual, I saw that Delicious Wind Goose may be in danger. He is about to drag into a conspiracy. Even if you all can come back to life again, I don’t want you to be framed and be wanted for no reason.
“So I want to help him. As an outsider, I may be able to see who will be framing him and how to get out of the problem…”
Annan’s icy blue pupils were bright and confident. The morning light came through the window and shone on Annan’s face, making his face shrouded in sacredness.
His clear and sweet voice was under the players’ watch through Lin Yiyi’s live stream channel, “You have helped me a lot, and I also want to… try to help you.”
“—You’ve helped us a lot…”
“—It’s so heart-warming. Annan is so cute!”
“—Perverted Sister Hyphen, stay away from Annan! Don’t rub him with your two lumps of fat! Hey, stop it!”
“—Someone has died a lot recently. Do you have any clues?”
“—How do I know…”
After a short delay, a swarm of bullet texts surged on the screen for the live stream.
Of course, that was also part of Annan’s acting.
Not only did he design the lines in advance, but he even chose the location specifically to ensure the light shone upon him when Lin Yiyi entered the door, he finished saying these words and turned around…
Half of the reason was to increase his favorability among the players. Another half of the reason was to make the players forget about the settings where Annan could see the situation on the player’s side regardless of distance and be accepted by the players.
I’m confident. I know the players so well, and I can gain their favorability easily.
Thinking of this, Annan showed a confident smile and raised his head proudly.
