Day: September 18, 2022

Chapter 18

       After dinner that day, Chen Yuncheng took Ning Junyan to play in the abandoned factory building nearby. The open space in the middle of the factory was already overgrown with weeds, waiting for the land to be sold for redevelopment. Usually, there were hardly any people.

       When Chen Yuncheng went there, he didn’t expect anyone and asked Ning Junyan to watch over first. When he tried to get into the empty factory building through the broken window, a stone was thrown at him and hit him right on the buttocks.

       At that time, Chen Yuncheng was a little stunned, and pop his head out of the window, and asked Ning Junyan who was standing by the window, “Yanyan, did you hit me?”

       Ning Junyan didn’t answer but looked in the direction where the stone was thrown. Chen Yuncheng followed his line of sight, only to find a young man sitting on a dilapidated wall over there.

       He was one of those gangsters who used to bully him.

       Ning Junyan didn’t say anything and walked directly toward the boy.

       The young man was acting haughty and smiled when he saw Ning Junyan coming over. He held a small stone in his hand, and said, “What do you want?”

       Ning Junyan bent down and picked up a large stone from the ground, and threw it directly at the young man on the wall. The stone hit the young man on the shoulder, causing him to lose his balance on the wall and suddenly fell backwards.

       Chen Yuncheng was startled, and hurriedly ran over to grab Ning Junyan’s arm and ran out.

       Ning Junyan didn’t know why Chen Yuncheng wanted to run, but he wouldn’t resist if Chen Yuncheng pulled him along. The two of them stepped on the weeds and scraps of the old factory, turned their heads, ran out, and all the way back to their foster parents’ yard.

       It wasn’t dark yet, but the foster father and mother had already returned to the room.

       The two of them ran in. Chen Yuncheng didn’t catch his breath, so he hurriedly locked the courtyard door. Before locking the door, he went out and looked around, and then leaned behind the door and gasped for breath.

      Ning Junyan was also panting, and as he did so, his eyes fell on Chen Yuncheng and noticed that Chen Yuncheng had a long piece of grass dust on his head at some point. He reached out to pick it off, and used the grass to rub it against Chen Yuncheng’s face.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t have the energy to slap him away, and only said, “Stop it.”

       Ning Junyan threw the grass aside.

       After a while, Chen Yuncheng went to pick up the grass and threw it into the trash can in the corner, he said to Ning Junyan, “Don’t mess with them, there are just too many of them. If you mess with them, they will keep looking for you, it’s very annoying.”

       He didn’t know if Ning Junyan heard and understood it or not.

       Chen Yuncheng walked over to the plastic basin, turned on the faucet, splashed cold water, and washed his face. He then raised his head with water all over his face and asked Ning Junyan, “Are you taking a shower?”

       Ning Junyan nodded and walked over.

       Chen Yuncheng took off all his clothes and didn’t bother to enter the basin, so he stepped into the basin and stood directly under the faucet to rinse.

       He didn’t dare to rinse for too long, as he was afraid that the foster mother would hear the voice and scold them for wasting water, so he quickly climbed out and let Ning Junyan, who had already taken off his clothes, go in to take a cold shower, and ran away to get a dry towel to wipe his body.

       The next day, Chen Yuncheng caught a cold.

       He didn’t know why he caught a cold. He was usually in good health, and it wasn’t the first time he took a cold shower, but this time he caught a cold.

       Early in the morning, Chen Yuncheng sneezed several times, yet his foster parents still urged him to take Ning Junyan out to work quickly.

       The foster mother also said to him, “The cold will clear up on its own in a few days, don’t be fussy.”

       Chen Yuncheng felt that he was not being fussy, but that he was dizzy and had little energy.

       The two of them came out of the yard.

       Chen Yuncheng said to Ning Junyan as he walked forward, “Let’s not go far today.”

       Ning Junyan nodded and followed him silently.

       As a result, by noon, they met the group of gangsters. Including the boy he met yesterday, there were five or six people in the other party, all of whom were older than Ning Junyan.

       Chen Yuncheng wanted to slip away, but he was drowsy and didn’t run in the right direction, and was finally surrounded by the group of people in the old factory.

       This was the first time Chen Yuncheng had really seen Ning Junyan fight someone.

       Ning Junyan must have learned about it. However, Chen Yuncheng didn’t understand it either. He knew that some children would learn Taekwondo, Judo, or something. He didn’t know what Ning Junyan had learned, but he fights in a systematic way.

       If it was just an organized martial art style or a series of martial arts routines, Ning Junyan shouldn’t be the opponent of those children who had grown up in society, but he had an unstoppable ruthlessness in him.

       The five or six teenagers had originally scattered in order to surround them, and when at first two people come to him, one of them was beaten by Ning Junyan before the other one shouted for someone to come.

       When the group of people gathered, Ning Junyan first protected Chen Yuncheng in a corner, and would not let anyone approach Chen Yuncheng. Later, he couldn’t hold back too many people by himself. After being pulled away, someone took Chen Yuncheng out and kicked him to the ground.

       It was not that Chen Yuncheng couldn’t resist, but after all, he was several years younger, thinner, and smaller, and his strength was a lot worse than that of the man opposite him. He fell to the ground, the man reached out and grabbed his shirt to pick him up, he lowered his head and bit the man’s hand, heard the other man scream in pain, and then he was slapped in the face, and his ears were buzzing sound.

       Ning Junyan rushed over at this moment, he no longer cared about others, he just pressed the boy who had attacked Chen Yuncheng to the ground and punched him all on the boy.

       The fight turned out to be extremely violent afterwards.

       Not only Chen Yuncheng and Ning Junyan were in a bad state, but the other group was also in a bad state. Ning Junyan’s head was covered in blood, but he still stood in front of Chen Yuncheng, looking at the person opposite him coldly, as if he would fight to the death if anyone dared to touch Chen Yuncheng.

       He didn’t know who in the group of teenagers said first, “Forget it, let’s go.” The others followed him and left. They didn’t want to fight with Ning Junyan, nor did they want to beat him to death here, so they retreated first.

       Only then did Ning Junyan turn to look at Chen Yuncheng.

       One of Chen Yuncheng’s trouser legs was torn, and a wound on his leg was bleeding. His face and eyes were swollen. When he opened his mouth to speak, he frowned when the wound was pulled, but he still asked Ning Junyan, “Are you alright? “

       This was not the first time that these gangsters had clashed with Chen Yuncheng. If it wasn’t for Ning Junyan’s tough attitude, they would not have attacked so hard, so this was the first time that Chen Yuncheng had been beaten so badly.

       But Chen Yuncheng didn’t blame Ning Junyan, he still remembered how Ning Junyan tried his best to protect him.

       When the two returned to the yard with their wounds, even the foster father was taken aback and took them to a nearby small clinic for the doctor to treat the wounds.

       At that time, the doctor examined them briefly and found that neither of them had any broken bones, only soft tissue contusions or skin lacerations. As for whether the internal organs were injured, the small clinic couldn’t detect them.

       The foster father didn’t plan to take them to the hospital. He simply took them back after the wounds were treated. On the way back, he scolded them while walking, blaming them for causing trouble outside and wasting his money.

       Later, Chen Yuncheng would think that it was fortunate that both he and Ning Junyan were lucky to have survived so many beatings without hurting their bones or internal organs, otherwise they might not be alive now.

       After they returned, Chen Yuncheng was in pain as if his whole body was about to fall apart, and all he wanted to do was to lie down in bed and rest.

       But after he and Ning Junyan had gone into the room, the foster mother appeared at the door again and cursed angrily at them.

       Chen Yuncheng sat on the edge of the bed with his head down and did not speak, while Ning Junyan stood at the end of the bed and kept looking at the foster mother who was scolding them at the door.

       After a while, Chen Yuncheng heard that the foster mother suddenly stopped talking. He raised his head and saw the foster mother staring at Ning Junyan with wide eyes, so he also looked at Ning Junyan.

       The lights in the room were not bright, and Ning Junyan had gauze wrapped around his head, but he could still see the expression on his foster mother’s face with a grim calmness.

       The foster mother pointed at him and said, “Why are you looking at me like that? Do you not agree with me?”

       Chen Yuncheng noticed Ning Junyan’s right arm dropping to his side, and the right thumb resting on the trouser leg slowly over the other knuckles between his fingers. He quickly stood up, walked over, grabbed Ning Junyan’s hand, and said, “You’ve hurt your head again, what if it’s even worse now?”

       Ning Junyan didn’t speak, only looking down at his hand that was being held.

       Chen Yuncheng looked at his foster mother and said, “Foster mother, he has a head injury.”

       The foster mother realized that Ning Junyan was originally a fool and did not want to continue to be angry with the fool, so she walked away with a cold face.

       Chen Yuncheng walked over and closed the door, then came back and took Ning Junyan’s hand, saying, “Go to sleep.”

       They didn’t even take a shower, just took off their dirty clothes and climbed into bed.

       Chen Yuncheng was so tired that he didn’t even have the energy to talk to Ning Junyan, so he fell asleep immediately. It was only in the middle of the night that he woke up from the pain of accidentally touching the wound on his leg and felt Ning Junyan sleeping close to him with a bloody smell. Vaguely, he reached out and touched Ning Junyan’s head, and soon fell asleep again.


Notes:
Ning Junyan is kinda weird ngl, he gave out a psychopath kinda vibe ( ̄□ ̄;)

Chapter 17

       Guan Anlin actually didn’t want to do anything to Chen Yuncheng. He only appeared here tonight just to meet Chen Yuncheng.

       He heard Chen Yuncheng’s voice in the darkness, and knowing that the other party could not see him, he reached out to stop the man, but he did not expect the man behind Chen Yuncheng to strike without mercy.

       Guan Anlin’s family was poor. After graduating from junior high school, he came out to work in society and was imprisoned for two years. He had fought countless fights since he was a child, and few of them could be his opponent, but the man in front of him was very strong. Once the man grabbed his neck, he held it firmly, and it made him feel suffocated almost instantly.

       He twisted his hand and tried to pull his fingers free while raising his knee to kick at the other man.

       The man reacted quickly, raising his leg to block his leg, and at the same time, his hand was gripping harder, choking Guan Anlin to the point where he almost lost the ability to resist.

       At this time, Chen Yuncheng grabbed the hand that was choking Guan Anlin’s neck, and said hastily, “This is my friend, let go first.”

       The indifferent Ning Junyan turned to look at Chen Yuncheng before slowly releasing the hand that was choking Guan Anlin.

       Guan Anlin stepped back and leaned against the wall, raised his hand to cover his neck, coughed twice in pain, then looked at Ning Junyan next to Chen Yuncheng, and hesitated to raise a hand to strike again.

       This time, Chen Yuncheng grabbed his arm, frowned, and said, “Are you here to fight today?”

       Guan Anlin didn’t speak, but still stared at Ning Junyan fiercely for a while, then turned to look at Chen Yuncheng and said, “I’m here to find you.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Are you free to have a good chat with me?”

       Ning Junyan stood quietly beside Chen Yuncheng without speaking.

       Guan Anlin said, “I’m free, but you don’t seem to be free.”

       Chen Yuncheng knew that Guan Anlin minded Ning Junyan’s presence here, but he was unwilling to make Ning Junyan leave now for Guan Anlin’s sake, so he said, “We still have plenty of time to talk as long as you want.”

       Guan Anlin turned around and left.

       “Anlin!” Chen Yuncheng shouted at him, “Are you planning to continue following Zhang Wenyong?”

       Guan Anlin stopped, turned around, and said, “What does it have to do with you?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “As I said, Zhang Wenyong only has money in his eyes, and everything he wants you to do is to use you. If he really considered you a brother, he wouldn’t have encouraged you to do those things!”

       Guan Anlin was moved, turned around, and strode closer to Chen Yuncheng, “You think of me as a brother? You think of me as a brother but you would stand by and watch me go to jail?”

       Ning Junyan took half a step forward at this time, blocking half of Chen Yuncheng’s body, and preventing Guan Anlin from approaching.

       Guan Anlin then stopped again, laughed self-deprecatingly, and turned to leave again.

       Chen Yuncheng shouted at his back, “Have you ever thought that if you hadn’t been in jail for two years, you might have been arrested and sentenced to ten or twenty years? I’m sorry, but what else could I have done then?”

       Guan Anlin didn’t look back this time and kept walking along the street, his back gradually becoming blurred under the streetlights.

       Chen Yuncheng sighed.

       Ning Junyan turned to look at him, “Let’s go back?”

       Chen Yuncheng nodded, “Yeah.”

       The two stopped at the door of Chen Yuncheng’s small kiosk.

       Chen Yuncheng’s mood was not too good. He squatted down, unlocked it with the key, and pulled the shutter door halfway up. When he looked up at Ning Junyan, his expression changed into a smile again and said, “I’ll call you a taxi.”

       Ning Junyan stood under the streetlight, his shadow was stretched and half of it overlapped Chen Yuncheng’s body, he asked, “Why calling me a taxi?”

       Chen Yuncheng said with a smile, “You’ve been gone for so long to bring me back, and I can’t take you back again, so it’s not too much to call a taxi for you, right?”

       Ning Jun said, “It’s not too much.”

       Chen Yuncheng lowered his head and used the taxi app to call for a taxi. When he entered the address, he stopped and looked up at Ning Junyan, “Where do you live?”

       Ning Junyan said, “I’ll just get a taxi directly.”

       Chen Yuncheng said quickly, “No, I want to take you back safely.” He handed the phone to Ning Junyan, “You can get lost by yourself.”

       Ning Junyan took his cell phone and entered the address of the community where he lived now.

       When he was typing, Chen Yuncheng stood beside him and looked at him, and suddenly said, “After not seeing you for so many years, you’re still so good at fighting. I thought you’d become rusty after becoming a doctor and rarely fight with people.”

       Ning Junyan returned the phone to him and said, “That’s a human instinct, and it’s impossible to be rusty as long as one lives.”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled and tapped the button for calling a car. When he saw that the taxi was coming in five minutes, he put away his phone and said, “But you’d better not get into a fight with just anyone right now.”

       Ning Junyan said, “I know how far I should go. I won’t hurt anyone.”

       “I know you have a sense of propriety,” Chen Yuncheng said, “I’m just afraid you’ll accidentally hurt your hand. You’re going to have an operation, your hand is so valuable now!”

       Ning Junyan looked at him quietly. After a while, he raised his hand and stretched it out in front of Chen Yuncheng. The hand that was very precious in Chen Yuncheng’s eyes was also very beautiful. The fingers were slender, with well-defined joints. The nails were trimmed short and round, and they were also very clean.

       For a moment, Chen Yuncheng almost thought that Ning Junyan was going to touch his face, but Ning Junyan just helped him tidy up the scarf around his neck with his hands, and his movements were gentle. It was clearly the same hand that had just firmly strangled Guan Anlin’s neck, almost choking him.

       When Ning Junyan retracted his hand, he said, “Don’t be upset.”

       Chen Yuncheng froze for a moment at his words and looked at him in a daze.

       By this time, the taxi Chen Yuncheng had called for Ning Junyan had arrived, and the driver parked the taxi on the side of the road.

       Ning Junyan said, “I’m leaving.”

       Chen Yuncheng seemed to have just regained his senses. He watched Ning Junyan get into the car, and followed him to the side of the car, waving to Ning Junyan through the taxi window that was lowered.

       Ning Junyan said to him, “You can find me if you need anything, anything at all.”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled again and said, “Alright.”

       The driver turned around and asked, “Can we go now?”

       Ning Junyan said, “Let’s go.”

       Chen Yuncheng took two steps back and stood on the side of the road watching the taxi leave.

       In Chen Yuncheng’s memory, Ning Junyan had never lost a fight with anyone.

       At that time, they lived on the outskirts of the city, surrounded by a factory, a large area of undeveloped wasteland, and old houses and streets cluttering the city-rural area.

       The surrounding environment was messy.

       Chen Yuncheng had a problem with a group of gangsters who hadn’t graduated from the junior high school nearby. In fact, he didn’t offend them, but he was often dirty like a little beggar. The gangsters would cuss him, and even throw stones when they saw him.

       He couldn’t deal with so many of them by himself, so he always hides when he could, and didn’t confront them head-on. It was only when Ning Junyan came that the situation changed.

Side Story 4

       Li Zhenran was very unhappy that Li Zhenruo carried him out the door, but unfortunately, he had no better and more convenient way, and finally let Li Zhenruo carry him into the car.

       While starting the car, Li Zhenruo put on a Bluetooth headset and called Song Jun, and the two made an appointment to meet at the zoo’s gate.

       There was an event at the zoo early morning on the first day of the New Year. In the morning, the residents nearby took their children to the zoo to participate in the events. It was over before noon, and the park was closed in the afternoon.

       It was already noon when Li Zhenruo and the others arrived, and they only saw two or three people coming out of the zoo, but almost no one went in. Sure enough, Li Zhenruo and Song Jun were stopped by the staff shortly after entering, saying that the event was over and the zoo was preparing to close and asked them to leave.

       Song Jun pulled the staff member and whispered a few words, and the staff member turned to look at Li Zhenruo, then turned and left.

       Li Zhenruo was a little puzzled, “Is your sphere of influence so big?” It seemed like any random person he met on the road could be a demon.

       Song Jun said, “It’s not that big, but it’s more than you can imagine. Let’s go.”

       He took Li Zhenruo to the giant panda house.

       Li Zhenran stayed quietly in Li Zhenruo’s arms with a serious expression.

       The giant panda pavilion in the zoo was renovated last year. The whole panda pavilion was clean, and the glass was polished and transparent.

       Li Zhenruo followed behind Song Jun, leaned against the glass and looked inside, and saw three giant pandas inside; one was lying on the rockery, the other was lying down and sleeping, and the other was sitting and nibbling on bamboo.

       Li Zhenruo found that he couldn’t tell which one was the giant panda last night.

       In the end, the giant panda sitting and nibbling on the bamboo was the first to notice them, and when he raised his head to look at them, he was suddenly stunned, his mouth opened, and the bamboo in his mouth fell.

       Li Zhenruo asked Song Jun, “Is it him?”

       Song Jun also pressed himself against the glass and nodded, “En,” before waving to the panda.

       Li Zhenran also straightened up slightly and looked inside.

       The giant pandas were still stunned, looking at them with open mouths.

       Li Zhenruo asked strangely, “What happened to him?”

       Song Jun obviously didn’t understand either, so he raised his hand and knocked on the glass.

       The giant panda who had been sleeping was awakened by his knock and lazily raised its head to look at them before falling back to sleep again.

       The other giant panda, who was dazed in place, finally moved. It took another bite of the bamboo, patted its chest with his paws, and slowly crawled in their direction.

       Song Jun seemed to have a good relationship with the giant panda. He pressed against the glass and said, “I brought that round-faced cat to see you.”

       Li Zhenruo gave Song Jun a dissatisfied look.

       The giant panda didn’t seem to hear it. He climbed to the front of the glass, stood up against the glass, patted his front paws on the glass, and stared intently in Li Zhenruo’s direction. However, he was not looking at Li Zhenruo but at Li Zhenran in his arms.

       Li Zhenran was inexplicable and tilted his head slightly.

       The giant panda wiped the glass with its paws, looked at Li Zhenran seriously for a while, and suddenly covered its chest with both paws and fell backwards.

       Song Jun and Li Zhenruo were both startled, and Li Zhenran’s eyes widened.

       After the giant panda lay down on the ground, it kept covering its chest and started rolling from side to side, making a “woo woo” sound from its mouth.

       Song Jun patted the glass nervously, “Giant panda?”

       The giant panda rolled for a while and finally stopped. He flexibly rolled over from the ground, lay down in front of the glass, pointed at Li Zhenran and said, “Give him to me.”

       Li Zhenruo hugged Li Zhenran, moved back more than ten steps in a row and looked at the giant panda warily.

       Song Jun was confused, “What’s with that?”

       The panda said, “It’s real this time. It’s love at first sight.”

       “Huh?” Song Jun looked surprised, then suddenly realised, turned his head to look at Li Zhenran in Li Zhenruo’s arms.

       Li Zhenran’s face seemed to darken even more. He breathed heavily and was suppressing his anger.

       Li Zhenruo hugged Li Zhenran tightly and said, “Don’t you come over. I won’t give it to you.”

       The giant panda patted the glass, and he seemed a little dazed, “Isn’t this cat the one from last night?”

       Song Jun pointed at Li Zhenruo, “Sober up. The one holding the cat was the cat last night. Didn’t you fall in love with him at first sight?”

       The giant panda scratched his head in distress, “I was originally, but this black and white one was made just like the lover of my dreams.”

       Li Zhenruo heard the words and said, “Don’t even think about it!”

       “Huh?” The giant panda grimaced.

       Song Jun said in a low voice, “I told you last night that Garfield is my master’s apprentice. The Garfield he holds is his lover, so you should give up.”

       When the giant panda heard Song Jun’s words, his disappointment was immediately written on his face, “Why is this…”

       Song Jun comforted him, “Your species is different. You should stop thinking about it, and just find a giant panda at ease.”

       Although he said that, the giant panda didn’t seem to give up altogether. He kept staring at Li Zhenran, and after a while, he asked Li Zhenruo strangely, “Why do you want to be with a cat exactly like you?”

       Li Zhenruo suddenly burst out, “You still ask me! He just ate the medicine pill you gave me last night and became like this. He is a person! Not a cat!”

       Song Jun put his index finger to his lips, “Shh—don’t attract the staff’s attention!”

       The giant panda opened its mouth in wonder, “Huh?”

       Later, Song Jun also said, “That black and white Garfield, whose name is Li Zhenran, was originally a person, but he ate the elixir you gave to Zhenruo last night, and he became like this.”

       The giant panda stretched out his claws and scratched his butt, “Isn’t that an elixir to improve cultivation?”

       Song Jun shook his head, “It doesn’t seem that simple.”

       The giant panda was stunned, “I don’t know. I bought it at an auction, and I thought it was an elixir to improve one’s cultivation.”

       Song Jun looked at him suspiciously, “You really don’t know?”

       The panda was a little aggrieved, “Chunjun, you suspect me.”

       Song Jun asked him, “Then how do you explain why he turned into this colour?”

       The giant panda scratched his chin, “Yeah, that’s weird.”

       Li Zhenruo put Li Zhenran on the ground and said to him, “You are not allowed to go there!” Then he walked to the glass and asked the panda, “Why did you give me that elixir?”

       The giant panda calmly said, “I like you.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “You change your heart so fast. Your love is worthless.”

       The giant panda was hit hard and looked at Li Zhenruo with wide eyes.

       When he looked at the panda’s reaction, Li Zhenruo also felt that his words were too harsh, but no matter what, he had to dispel the panda’s idea of ​​Li Zhenran as soon as possible, so he said, “We are trying to find a way to change my second brother back to his original form. He was not a cat at all. He looks like a cat exactly like me, but the fur is black and white, so we wondered if it had something to do with you.”

       The giant panda said aggrievedly, “It has nothing to do with me.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Then do you have a way to make him return to the original?”

       The giant panda looked in the direction of Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenruo blocked his sight so that he could not see it.

       The panda said, “Let me see it.”

       Song Jun asked him at this time, “You don’t have a solution, do you?”

       The panda looked down at Song Jun and admitted, “I don’t even know what’s going on. Of course, I had no solution.”

       Although he knew it was likely that the giant panda had nothing to do with it, Li Zhenruo still couldn’t help but be a little disappointed.

       “Hey!” The giant panda stopped him, “I can’t go out now. Let’s go to the amusement park tonight. I’ll study what’s going on. After listening to you guys, I also think it has something to do with me.”

       Li Zhenruo looked at him suspiciously, “You won’t have any thoughts on my second brother, will you?”

       The giant panda lowered his head, “Um—” after thinking for a while, he raised his head and said to him, “I don’t like him anymore when he becomes a human.”

       Li Zhenruo warned him, “You are not allowed to change your mind even if he can’t become a human!”

       The giant panda pouted and poked his fingers on the glass. He didn’t answer Li Zhenruo for a long time and finally raised his head reluctantly and said, “Let’s talk about it at night.”

Side Story 3

       Xia Hongshen made a phone call and hung up after a couple of brief explanations.

       Song Jun approached and asked him, “Is it Master Yun Po?”

       Xia Hongshen replied “En” and turned his head to see that Li Zhenruo was still scratching the cat, and suddenly felt that his back seemed to be itching as well.

       “Master?” Li Zhenruo picked up the funny cat stick beside the bed and didn’t ask where it came from. He shook in front of Li Zhenran and asked Xia Hongshen, “When will your friend arrive?”

       Li Zhenran turned his head and closed his eyes.

       Xia Hongshen watched the funny cat stick dangling in front of his eyes and said casually, “It can be as soon as a day or two or a month or two later.”

       “Ah?” Li Zhenruo stopped, “Then what should we do?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “What can we do?”

       Li Zhenruo combed Li Zhenran’s hair with her fingers, “Does that friend of yours have a solution?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “If you give enough money, there is usually a way.”

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t help sighing, “If it’s just about money, that’s the best solution.”

       After speaking, he couldn’t help burying his face on Li Zhenran’s back again and then giggled twice.

       It was useless to delay time here in Xia Hongshen, but Li Zhenran definitely had no way to return to Li’s house like this. Li Zhenruo considered whether to take him out for a walk or go back to Li Zhenran’s apartment to live in the world of two cats.

       Before he made up his mind, Li Zhenruo heard the sound of the closing and locking of a car from downstairs. He carried Li Zhenran and walked to the window to have a look. He saw his boss’ Hummer parked on the roadside. Luo Fei and Feng Junyuan were walking toward the small building.

       Today was the first day of the New Year, and Li Zhenruo suddenly felt it was like Luo Fei was accompanying his wife back to her mother’s house.

       Suddenly, Li Zhenruo felt Li Zhenran pulling him in his arms.

       He lowered his head and saw that Li Zhenran was looking up at him, his eyes were dark and translucent, and after a while, he reluctantly made a “meow”. This was the first sound of Li Zhenran’s meow after he became a cat. Li Zhenruo understood it; Li Zhenran told him to go.

       “Let’s go?” Li Zhenruo was a little unsure, but he quickly realised that Li Zhenran probably didn’t want to be seen by Luo Fei.

       He then carried Li Zhenran and said to Xia Hongshen, “Master, I’ll go first. Let me know if there is any news.”

       Xia Hongshen didn’t mean to stop them and waved his hand to let him go. Li Zhenruo was thinking about sending a can of canned food to Xia Hongshen first. If he liked it and he hurried up, he would then bring him the rest of the canned food.

       Just as he walked out of Xia Hongshen’s room with Li Zhenran in his arms, he met Luo Fei and Feng Junyuan who were approaching.

       When Feng Junyuan saw that he was carrying a cat, he asked him curiously, “Where did the cat come from?”

       “Oh,” Li Zhenruo said with a smile, “My friend’s cat.”

       Feng Junyuan saw that he was going to leave, “Are you leaving?”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “I come to say New Year’s greetings to Master and leave after I’m done.”

       However, as soon as he finished saying that, Luo Fei suddenly said, “Wait.”

       Li Zhenran raised his head from Li Zhenruo’s arms and looked at Luo Fei vigilantly. Luo Fei looked at Li Zhenran repeatedly for a moment, and said to Li Zhenruo, “This cat looks very much like you.”

       Li Zhenruo replied casually, “All Garfield looks the same.”

       Luo Fei frowned slightly, but in the end, he didn’t say anything. He only said to Li Zhenruo, “Say hello to Zhenran for me and wish him a happy new year.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Thank you, and I wish you a happy new year, boss.”

       When Li Zhenruo left with the cat in his arms, Feng Junyuan saw Luo Fei’s thoughtful look and asked, “What are you thinking about?”

       Luo Fei shook his head and said, “There’s something familiar about that cat’s scent.”

       Feng Junyuan’s face turned red suspiciously, and said, “It’s so cute, I want to touch it.”

       Luo Fei said with a smile, “If you want to touch it, then touch it.”

       Feng Junyuan shook his head, “When I was about to reach out, the cat was unhappy when I saw it.”

       Luo Fei said with a smile, “Its temper not bad for a small one.”

       Li Zhenruo came out of the small building with Li Zhenran in his arms and thought with a sigh of relief that fortunately, Luo Fei didn’t see him. Otherwise, Li Zhenran would definitely be angry.

       He opened the driver’s door, put Li Zhenran in the passenger seat, and asked with a sigh, “What now?”

       Li Zhenran stared coldly ahead.

       Li Zhenruo knew he was still unhappy, so he could only say, “It’s useless for you to be upset. I didn’t mean to. I thought that was really an elixir of immortality and wanted you to live longer…”

       Li Zhenran finally turned to look at him.

       Li Zhenruo said, “I will try my best to find a way; you won’t be like this forever. Even if it is the elixir of Taishang Laojun, it is impossible to turn a person into a cat directly, right? It’s faster than reincarnation.”

       At this time, Li Zhenran finally reluctantly made a “meow”.

       Li Zhenruo asked him, “Let’s go home?”

       Li Zhenran nodded.

       There was no way for them to return to the Li family. The apartment in the city was being cleaned all the time, and there was no problem going there at any time.

       Back at home, Li Zhenruo put Li Zhenran on the ground and went over to open the window for ventilation.

       Li Zhenran turned on the TV with his paw and then jumped to the coffee table to press the remote control. Li Zhenruo opened the window and came back to see that he was having a hard time pressing it, so he walked over and bent down and picked up the remote control to help him press it.

       As a result, he looked down and saw Li Zhenran staring at him coldly, silently put the remote control back under his paws, and couldn’t help but whisper, “How come you’ve turned into a cat and gotten grumpy?”

       Li Zhenran pressed the remote control with his paw to change channels.

       Li Zhenruo sat on the sofa and reached out and poked Li Zhenran’s tail, but Li Zhenran immediately swung his tail to the other side.

       “Second brother…” Li Zhenruo called him.

       Li Zhenran pretended not to hear it.

       Li Zhenruo knew that Li Zhenran would not pay attention to him. The most important thing at this time was to have thick skin, so he turned into a cat and jumped on the coffee table, sitting right next to Li Zhenran who was watching TV. After a while, he stretched out his paws and pulled him.

       Li Zhenran moved away a bit.

       Li Zhenruo stretched out his tail slowly and hooked his tail in a circle.

       Li Zhenran pulled his tail out calmly.

       Unwilling to give up, Li Zhenruo stretched out his tail again, hooked the tip of his tail, and then moved his butt over to sit next to him.

       This time, Li Zhenran raised his paw and pressed his head to push him away.

       “Meow~” Li Zhenruo began to call her brother pitifully.

       However, Li Zhenran ignored him.

       He raised his claws and scratched his head, and Li Zhenruo felt he had to do something to attract Li Zhenran’s attention. He was a little confused about this and finally went to Li Zhenran and lay down and raised his tail.

       Li Zhenran looked at the hairy buttocks in front of him and the small hole in the middle and couldn’t help raising one leg and kicking it.

       Li Zhenruo was kicked forward by him and almost fell off the coffee table. When he turned his head and was about to get angry, he heard his mobile phone ringing, so he ignored Li Zhenran’s side and turned into a human form to answer the phone.

       The call was from Song Jun. When he saw the name, Li Zhenruo thought Xia Hongshen’s friend had arrived. However, when the call was answered, Song Jun asked if he wanted to go to the zoo.

       “Zoo?” Li Zhenruo was inexplicable. He sat on the ground next to the coffee table and stretched out his fingers to tease Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenran turned his head coldly.

       Song Jun said, “The giant panda asked Luo Fei to send tickets, saying that the zoo has activities and inviting us to play.”

       Li Zhenruo asked him strangely, “Are you and the giant panda very close?”

       Song Jun replied, “Not bad, but he seems to want to meet you.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “See me? Why did he want to see me?”

       Song Jun said, “It seems he knows about the elixir, and he felt a little sorry. He said he want to see if he could be of any help.”

       Li Zhenruo reached out and grabbed Li Zhenran’s tail and wagged it. He pondered and asked, “The giant panda is very powerful, isn’t it?”

       Song Jun thought for a while, “How can I put it? He should have a good background, after all, he is a national treasure, but I don’t know to what extent. Of course, if he is rich, he should not be as rich as his senior brother. “

       Li Zhenruo hesitated for a moment and felt that he should go see the giant panda. The matter of why the giant panda gave him this thing and why Li Zhenran turned black and white, he should ask clearly.

       He asked Song Jun, “Are you going?”

       Song Jun said, “Senior Brother Xia doesn’t want to go, but if you need it, I can accompany you.”

       Li Zhenruo said quickly, “Come with me. I’m not familiar with giant pandas.”

       Song Jun agreed, “Okay.”

       He hung up the phone, and Li Zhenruo squatted in front of Li Zhenran, “Come on, let’s go see the giant panda.”

       Li Zhenran looked at him this time and made a soft “meow”.

       Li Zhenruo said, “I’ve got nothing to do with him…”

       Li Zhenran obviously didn’t believe it, and he asked Li Zhenruo: Does he like you?

       Li Zhenruo shook his head, “We’ve only met once.”

       Love at first sight?

       “He’s a giant panda, right? The species are different.”

       What does he mean by giving you something?

       Li Zhenruo reached out and grabbed his beard and pulled it, and Li Zhenran almost bit him.

       “I just didn’t understand what he meant by giving me something, so I wanted to find out. I’m bringing you with me; why are you jealous.”

       After speaking, Li Zhenruo stretched a hand to Li Zhenran, “Let’s go?”

       Li Zhenran looked at him for a moment, then slowly raised a paw and placed it on his palm.

Chapter 16

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t move and simply said, “I’m not cold.” He actually had a pretty rough life, and even in the coldest winter, he didn’t wear a scarf or gloves when he went out. And now that he was in a well-heated room, he felt hot.

       Ning Junyan had already put on his coat. When he heard what Chen Yuncheng said, he reached out, took off the scarf, and said, “Let’s go then.”

       Chen Yuncheng felt the softness on his neck disappear in an instant. He saw that Ning Junyan was holding the scarf in his hand, and the other hand opened the office door and walked out, so he immediately followed.

       They passed by the nurses’ station.

       A young nurse raised her head and greeted, “Chief Ning.”

       Ning Junyan nodded, his attitude looking a little cold.

       Chen Yuncheng walked beside Ning Junyan and asked him, “You are already the chief? That impressive?”

       Ning Junyan said calmly, “It’s deputy chief.”

       Chen Yuncheng said with a smile, “That’s also very impressive.” He actually did not know that at Ning Junyan’s age, being able to become a deputy chief surgeon in this top three hospital was not something that could be simply described by the word ‘very impressive’.

       They took the elevator downstairs.

       Originally, Ning Junyan wanted to drive, but Chen Yuncheng said, “Why don’t you take a taxi? I’ll treat you to dinner today. You can have some drink if you don’t drive.”

       Ning Junyan had already pressed the underground floor button, but he then reached out and pressed the light on the first floor and said, “Okay.”

       They passed through the hall on the first floor of the inpatient building and came out of the garden from the main entrance, and the cold wind hit them instantly.

       Chen Yuncheng gathered up his lapel subconsciously.

       Ning Junyan stopped and once again hung the scarf around his neck. He then wrapped it around his neck and said, “It’s cold now.”

       Chen Yuncheng raised his hand and touched the scarf. The scarf was light grey with a dark grey logo on it. He was unfamiliar with these brands, but the scarf’s texture was as soft as cashmere, and the labels were all in English. It shouldn’t have cost cheap, and although the scarf didn’t have a tag, it looked new, and the folds were all neat and tidy.

       “Is this a gift for me, or do you want to lend it to me to wear?” Chen Yuncheng asked with a smile in order to ease the awkward atmosphere.

       Ning Junyan said, “It’s a gift for you.”

       Chen Yuncheng walked with him towards the hospital gate and asked, “Why did you give me a scarf? I’m not afraid of cold.”

       After a while, Ning Jun said, “It looks good.”

       Chen Yuncheng paused in his footsteps.

       Ning Junyan stopped and turned to look at him.

       The scarf was indeed quite nice, fuzzy, and soft around Chen Yuncheng’s neck. It made him look like he was several years younger. It was as if he was a college boy shopping with his girlfriend.

       Chen Yuncheng smiled and said, “Thank you.”

       It was Chen Yuncheng who chose the place for dinner, as he insisted on treating today, and invited Ning Junyan to a hot pot restaurant with a decent ambience.

       This kind of weather was suitable for eating hotpot, and everything was shrouded in a layer of steam.

       When Chen Yuncheng took off his coat, he also took off the scarf. He carefully folded the scarf a few times, wrapped it inside the coat, and then asked the waiter to cover it with a cloth cover.

       When it was time to finish eating, Chen Yuncheng took the scarf out and put it under his nose, and sniffed it. He was satisfied that it did not smell like a hotpot.

       As they stood outside the hotpot restaurant, Ning Junyan said to Chen Yuncheng, “Let me take you back first.”

       “No need,” Chen Yuncheng put on the scarf, then looked up at him, “You should take a taxi and go back to rest.”

       Ning Junyan disagreed and still said, “I’ll take you back first.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “It’s quite close for me to go back from here, and it just so happens that I ate a bit too much in the evening. So I will take a walk back.”

       Ning Junyan said, “I’ll walk with you.”

       In the end, Chen Yuncheng smiled and said, “Let’s go.”

       They walked slowly along the street together.

       This area was quite close to Chen Yuncheng’s small kiosk. There were old urban areas nearby, where one could see tall buildings as well as old buildings and old shops.

       In this way, walking along the street with Ning Junyan reminded Chen Yuncheng of many things in his childhood.

       Back then, when the two of them went out to steal things, they often went out without any money on them and could not even afford to take the bus, so they walked along the street.

       Their foster parents’ compound was on the city’s outskirts, and they did not dare to steal too often nearby for fear of being recognised. So they could only walk along the street to the intersection of the city centre with dense traffic. The furthest they had walked was for two hours, as Chen Yuncheng remembered.

       Ning Junyan’s shoes didn’t fit. When they got there, they sat down in the shade under the overpass. Ning Junyan took off the shoes, and there was a big bright blister on his heel.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t dare to puncture the blisters, so he just found some toilet paper, kneaded it to make it soft, and wrapped his heel up.

       As the result, when he returned that night, the toilet paper was soaked in pale yellow tissue fluid and bright red blood, and it started to be mushy as it stuck to Ning Junyan’s feet.

       The two of them hid in the room, and Ning Junyan sat on the edge of the bed while Chen Yuncheng squatted in front of him. Chen Yuncheng tore off the toilet paper a little bit, then brought in clean water to wash his feet, and then finally found a band-aid to put on Ning Junyan’s foot carefully.

       After putting it on, Chen Yuncheng squatted in front of Ning Junyan, looked up at him and smiled, and asked him, “Does it still hurt?”

       Ning Junyan shook his head.

       Chen Yuncheng picked up the basin on the ground and went to the yard to pour the water.

       Walking like this put Chen Yuncheng back in a trance. Ning Junyan had grown taller and he himself had grown taller, yet he was still a few centimetres shorter than Ning Junyan.

       It was already dark, and they had been walking for almost half an hour. There were fewer and fewer pedestrians on the road.

       Ning Junyan spoke very little. After Chen Yuncheng gradually found the feeling of being in his childhood, he didn’t think that there was anything wrong with Ning Junyan not speaking. After all, from a long time ago their pattern of getting along was that he spoke and Ning Junyan listened, and he had long since gotten used to it.

       Near the front of Chen Yuncheng’s small kiosk, there was a building whose exterior wall was being repaired. A row of scaffolding was erected against the exterior wall. Pedestrians could only pass through the narrow passage between the shop on the bottom of the building and the scaffolding and had to be careful of the steel pipes under their feet and over their heads.

       Originally, because it was cold in winter and the street was blocked by scaffolding, there were few people in the street. The shops in this area did not do well in winter and were closed early because of the cold weather and the scaffolding.

       The light of the street lamps was blocked by a layer of wooden boards at the height of the second floor, and the narrow passage was suddenly very dark.

       Chen Yuncheng walked ahead and said to Ning Junyan, “Be careful.”

       Ning Junyan gave a soft “um”.

       Chen Yuncheng raised his hand and put the fallen scarf back on his shoulders. As he walked, he thought that when he got to the front of the kiosk, he would help Ning Junyan call for a taxi to take him back. After all, Ning Junyan accompanied him all the way, and since it was getting late, it would be inappropriate to invite Ning Junyan in.

       When he looked up, he saw a man smoking at the end of the narrow passage.

       At that time, Chen Yuncheng didn’t think too much, until when he was almost in front of the man, the red light suddenly went out, and the man stretched out a hand to Chen Yuncheng in the dark.

       Chen Yuncheng subconsciously retreated to the back, and Ning Junyan was behind him who reacted faster than Chen Yuncheng. He grabbed Chen Yuncheng’s shoulders and pulled him backwards, and he stepped around Chen Yuncheng’s side and met the outstretched hand.

       The person in the darkness froze for a moment and then went to push Ning Junyan.

       But no one saw how Ning Junyan did it, the next second he had already grabbed the man’s neck and pushed him backwards. They were already at the end of the passage, so Ning Junyan’s push pushed the man outside the passage, exposing his face to the light of the street lamp.

       Chen Yuncheng saw that the person who attacked him was Guan Anlin.


The author has something to say:

I asked my friend who is a doctor if it was possible to become the deputy director of a tertiary hospital at the age of 30. She said it was difficult, and I thought it was not impossible, so I just display it casually.

By the way, doctor Ningis a great fighter, which will be explained in the next chapter
