Chapter 110 – Cheating on three people at once (Part 1)

Chapter 110 – Cheating on three people at once (Part 1)


The air was filled with such an awkward atmosphere, and the doctor also sensed it. Before she could speak, Lu Shifeng, who was accompanying her, spoke first, “It’s nothing. Stop watching documentaries.”


Jian Luo glanced at him.


Lu Shifeng spoke in a deep voice, “The dragon race has a 0% difficulty in childbirth. You are human, and the situation may be somewhat special. I will have the top medical team in the entire universe assist in your delivery. Don’t worry.”


It sounded good indeed.


Even though he didn’t explicitly state whether the priority was the child’s safety or the mother’s, Jian Luo didn’t want to inquire further. Some things didn’t need a clear answer. Sometimes, being muddled was rare, and making things too clear could be embarrassing.


Moreover, the answers to such questions were already in everyone’s hearts; there was no need to humiliate oneself by asking.


Jian Luo touched his belly and smiled, “Alright, I hope everything goes smoothly and safely.”


Lu Shifeng looked at his forced smile and furrowed his brows.


The doctor on the side felt that she might have said something wrong and tried to change the topic, “It’s okay. There are still three months left. Giving birth is very physically demanding. We will provide some exercise plans later on. Luo Luo, you must actively cooperate with the exercises. Keeping up with your physical condition and strength will prevent many accidents.”


Luo Luo nodded in cooperation, “Okay, got it.”


Today, he was surprisingly obedient, not complaining as usual. However, the doctor didn’t feel relieved.


Now, she could only hope for the safety of mother and child, praying for the smooth birth of the only hope of the Dark Star and that the mother could deliver smoothly.



On the way back from the examination, Jian Luo remained silent.


Before Lu Shifeng could speak, he received a private message from Jiang Jiang, and his whole person became lively, “Oh, the results of the photo processing are out.”


Lu Shifeng asked, “How is it?”


Jian Luo didn’t have time to explain. When he returned to the room, he sat on the sofa and contacted Wei Wei and the others with the processed photos.


Throughout the afternoon, Wei Wei and the others were under great pressure. Influenced by online public opinion, many customers started applying for refunds without the product, and some who received the dried fruits also demanded refunds, citing dissatisfaction with the taste.


Wei Wei said, “They’ve already opened the merchandise and eaten a lot, yet they still demand a refund.”


Anya also helped analyze for Jian Luo, “It’s all the work of that blogger. After posting that manipulated image, he has been leading the narrative, claiming that our products are bad and inciting others to demand justice. It makes it seem like we and the consumers are on opposite sides.”


Jian Luo also opened StarNet to check the latest developments.


Since the release of the manipulated image, which seemed like solid evidence, the blogger became more arrogant. He listed all the mistreatment he had received during his process of seeking justice, even bringing out his past records of seeking justice. He loudly advocated the theory that consumers should stand up to defend their legitimate rights:


“We buy things, and if we’re not satisfied, the merchants should be responsible.”


“No one’s money comes from thin air. If it’s not suitable, it should be returned.”


“These unscrupulous merchants only know how to make money. Do we, as consumers, still have a say?”


The blogger’s words were impassioned, stirring up many people and encouraging them to seize this opportunity to apply for refunds.


Jian Luo, as he continued to read, once again noticed that the blogger had mentioned him: “I have received the refund. I hope you can do better in the future. Don’t be so stubborn and disregard the consumers. That’s it.”


Wei Wei leaned over, “He dares to mention us again?!”


Jian Luo chuckled instead of getting angry. With extreme calmness, he replied, attaching a picture, “We have received your after-sales request. We sincerely thank you for your support and encouragement of our work. We hope that in the future, when uploading after-sales photos, you can seek truth and be genuine. Running a small business is not easy. Please understand each other.”


The manipulated photo was released by Jian Luo.


To make the differences more apparent to others, he even pointed out some obvious flaws in the manipulated image. Finally, he placed the two photos side by side for a more direct and three-dimensional comparison.


As the first image was displayed, the audience was stunned:


“Is it real?”


“Manipulated image? How can someone do such a thing?”


“Just for a dried fruit worth 15 star coins, really?”


One star coin is equivalent to 1 RMB yuan. Although 15 yuan is not a small amount, it’s rare for someone to go to the trouble of manipulating an image for a refund of 15 yuan. It was simply unbelievable.


The blogger, seeing this, became infuriated. He retorted, “Baseless accusations! My photos haven’t been manipulated. Is this how your store bullies consumers?”


Jian Luo said, “We have not made any malicious modifications to the images. Instead, your actions constitute online fraud. If you have any doubts, we are willing to go through legal procedures for a fair trial.”


He knew that it wasn’t worth making a big deal out of a transaction for 15 star coins. He also knew that openly opposing the consumers wouldn’t benefit him. However, from the beginning, the other party had been pushing him step by step. He had already offered a refund, but the other party maliciously placed multiple orders and demanded refunds. Jian Luo had tried to downplay the situation, but the other party continued to publicly shame him on the platform. His tolerance and patience hadn’t gained the slightest restraint from the other party, so he decided to speak up.


The commenting onlookers said:


“Interstellar lawsuits aren’t that easy to establish.”


“The amount is too small.”


“Isn’t it a bit much to file a lawsuit for such a small sum?”


There were those who opposed and those who supported:


“What kind of holier-than-thou attitude is this? Isn’t it just money? They say humans are weak, yet they’re trying to take advantage even of a small race. Have some shame!”


“You complained about the taste, but during the live broadcast, there was always holographic tasting. Why didn’t you find it unappetizing then? No one forced you to place an order.”


“Even a fool can see the traces of manipulation in those photos. Is it so hard to admit a mistake?”


“Is this racial discrimination? If this store were a major aristocracy, these people wouldn’t dare to show such an attitude. It’s just because humans are easy to bully.”


The online argument was heating up, and Jian Luo was already considering consulting with legal professionals.


“Ding dong.”


A message happened to come in.


Jian Luo casually opened it, and it turned out to be from Nie Yan. He said, “Any issues with the dried fruits in transit?”


It was a must to reply to the information from the business partner’s influential father. Jian Luo said, “It shouldn’t be. We rarely receive orders with genuine quality issues. I suspect he’s attempting a malicious refund.”


Nie Yan responded with a thoughtful “Hmm.”


Jian Luo lounged on the sofa, sighed deeply, and rubbed his forehead.


Not far away, Lu Shifeng was also browsing the star network. Just as he was about to speak, Jian Luo’s message tone rang.


Nie Yan said, “I’ll have the legal department handle this matter.”


Jian Luo was somewhat shocked, “Are you personally going to handle it?”


“The logistics sector falls under Moonlight’s responsibility. Food spoilage tarnishes the company’s image. As your business partner, I should take responsibility when issues arise. Building a good brand image maximizes benefits,” Nie Yan added, “Next time you encounter such a situation, I hope you’ll think of me first to minimize losses.”




Truly deserving of you.


Jian Luo honestly replied, “Okay, boss.”


Although Nie Yan’s words sounded official, Jian Luo had still received assistance. So, he actively added, “Thank you, boss~”


After some thought, Jian Luo sent a custom emoji he had developed himself. Originally designed for the online customer service team, it aimed to add a touch of friendliness and fun to communication with customers.


He included a dog head, a heart, a crying face, a hug, a happy face, and various other small expressions. Jian Luo chose a heart and sent it to Nie Yan to express his gratitude.


Originally thinking that Nie Yan wouldn’t reply, to his surprise, Nie Yan responded after a short while, “Did you draw this yourself?”


Jian Luo: “Yes.”


Nie Yan was silent for a moment, then copied and pasted a heart back, saving time and effort.




Jian Luo closed the chat interface.


As he looked up, he saw Lu Shifeng staring at him. The marshal was half-leaning on the sofa, in a lazy posture, supporting his chin with one hand. He was quietly looking at Jian Luo with those deep red eyes, making people inexplicably guilty. How to describe this feeling precisely? It was like being caught cheating – an awkward embarrassment.


Jian Luo awkwardly chuckled, “What’s up?”


Lu Shifeng spoke leisurely, “Feeling better?”




Well, it’s quite ordinary.


Actually, Jian Luo, he’s someone with a strong ability to self-regulate. Whatever happens, it doesn’t bother him for long. His earlier bad mood was genuine, but now that things are resolving, his good mood is genuine too.


Thinking about this, Jian Luo became quite proactive. He said, “You’re not asleep yet. I thought you’d go to bed first.”


Lu Shifeng’s lips curled into a cold smile. “What, am I being extra?”


“…Be normal.”


Jian Luo was contemplating what madness this guy was up to again. Dealing with a man’s heart was truly tricky. Lu Shifeng placed the parenting guide he was holding on the table and spoke, “The matter online, I’ll have someone handle it.”


Jian Luo: “Huh?”


Lu Shifeng: “If the involved amount doesn’t exceed 10,000 star coins, it won’t constitute fraud.”


Jian Luo nodded, aware of this matter too. “I understand. I doubt we can make a lawsuit out of it.”




Lu Shifeng paused, lifted his eyelids to glance at Jian Luo, his tone forceful yet tinged with danger. “He likes to deal with merchants, right? Let him have his fill.”


Initially bewildered, Jian Luo blinked, then realized. He clapped his hands, “You mean, he’s not just like this with our family!”


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow without confirming or denying.


Jian Luo’s eyes brightened, praising him, “Boss, you’re amazing. If the combined amount exceeds 10,000, we can sue. Wow, you’re incredible.”


Lu Shifeng, languidly, a hint of sourness in his voice, “What, not unnecessary now?”


Jian Luo, like a flatterer, crawled to his side, pleasingly grabbing his arm. “How could that be, how could that be? The boss is the most amazing.”


As they spoke, his phone pinged again.


Lu Shifeng barely had a moment to revel in the attention when Jian Luo let go and checked the message. It was unexpectedly from Zhan Wentai.


The noble master said, “I’ve seen the news online.”


Jian Luo hummed, “Thank you, teacher, for your concern. I’m fine.”


“Is it because of those things that you didn’t submit your assignment today?” Zhan Wentai was very indifferent. “You don’t need to worry about those matters. I’ll handle them.”




As expected of you.


Jian Luo’s hand trembled slightly as he typed the message, “I’m sorry, teacher. I’ll make up for the assignment tomorrow. You don’t need to worry about the things online; I’ll handle them myself. I won’t trouble you.”


Zhan Wentai outright refused, “The M9 Galaxy is an affiliated galaxy of the Phoenix Clan. My lax supervision is my responsibility. Regarding what happened there, I’ll give you an explanation.”


Jian Luo: “But…”


“There are no ‘buts,'” Zhan Wentai said. “When you have time, finish your assignment sooner.”




After closing the message, Jian Luo asked Lu Shifeng, “Do you also have affiliated galaxies? I’ve never heard of that.”


Lu Shifeng, originally reading a document, responded, “We do.”


Jian Luo seemed lost in thought.


“A few years ago, when I had nothing to do, I casually subjugated quite a few galaxies,” Lu Shifeng said casually, as if he had just gone out to buy groceries. “The Dark Star Territory is vast and doesn’t necessarily need colonization. We usually accept offerings from these galaxies. Why, have your eyes set on any?”




Darn it, why is he so extravagant?


Jian Luo persisted, “Um, roughly how many are there?”


Lu Shifeng casually replied, “Forgot.”


Jian Luo nearly choked on his own breath.


Lu Shifeng succinctly explained, “For ease of memory, galaxies named with ‘A’ are affiliated with the Dragon Clan, ‘S’ with the Blood Clan, ‘B’ with Pixius, and ‘M’ with the Phoenix Clan.”


Ah, that’s why His Excellency the Sacrificial Master said it was his affiliated galaxy.


Looking at it this way, giving away Earth was probably as simple to them as giving away a watch. He had been fussing over it unnecessarily for days!


“Ding dong.”


The terminal beeped again.


Jian Luo snapped out of it, only to find it was from the Little Emperor. The Little Emperor said, “Luo Luo, I’ve seen the online matter. They’ve really gone too far! I’m very angry!”


Jian Luo even had to comfort him in return, “Your Majesty, calm down. Don’t stoop to their level.”


The Little Emperor persisted, “Holding back just makes me angrier. I’ve decided, I’ll adjust the laws on online purchases to make people like him face legal consequences.”


Jian Luo widened his eyes, “How will Your Majesty change it?”


So arbitrary, is it? Laws are just changed like that? Your Majesty, are your subjects aware of how authoritative you are?


The Little Emperor’s momentum weakened, “I haven’t figured it out yet, but I’ll decide soon. Luo Luo, just wait and see!”


“…Thank you for your grace, Your Majesty.”


After closing the communication, before Jian Luo could deeply contemplate, Lu Shifeng had already turned off his communication wristband and pointed at the clock, “Look at the time.”


Jian Luo turned to see the hands showing it was already past 11 in the evening.


Lu Shifeng said, “Anything can wait until tomorrow.”


Knowing resistance was futile, Jian Luo obediently nodded, “Alright then, I’ll rest first. I’m actually a bit tired.”


After saying that, he eagerly headed towards the bed.


Cross-legged, gazing at the crystal ball, Jian Luo asked, “Will we return to the village from my childhood this time? Will the previous incident continue?”


Lu Shifeng glanced at him coolly, “It’s random.”


Jian Luo breathed a sigh of relief. In truth, he didn’t have much connection with these elder brothers. They didn’t harbor ill intentions; they were just a group of slightly lonely people in the city who craved warmth. Some liked watching pretty ladies, some enjoyed singing, and others preferred food shows.


Sometimes, these elders would place orders with him. When he livestreamed at night, it coincided with their work breaks, allowing them to watch and support the broadcaster.


After ending the call, Jian Luo relaxed. But as he looked up, he met Lu Shifeng’s gaze. The Marshal’s gaze was penetrating, and he arched an eyebrow. “Another one of your ex-boyfriends?”


Jian Luo hurriedly explained, “No, he’s not, he’s not my boyfriend.”


As he tried to explain in his haste, another call came through. Frantically attempting to clarify, he accidentally accepted the call again.


Jian Luo felt extremely close to collapsing inside.


The voice on the phone sounded delighted, “Luo Luo, it’s me.”


Jian Luo resigned himself, “L-Li Ge?”


“Ah, you okay from last night? You were up late.” Li Ge also expressed concern for Jian Luo’s late-night livestream, “I didn’t tune in last night. You’re not mad, are you?”




Jian Luo sensed a brewing storm of anger.


Desperately trying to survive, he quickly said, “Li Ge! It’s just not watching the livestream, no big deal. You must have had your own stuff to do. I don’t blame you.”


The more accommodating he sounded, the more the man on the other end persisted, launching into a conversation about physical and emotional well-being. Jian Luo was sweating profusely, finally finding a chance to hang up.


Having learned his lesson this time, he tossed the phone aside, vowing never to accidentally answer calls again.


Jian Luo glanced at Lu Shifeng, feeling extremely guilty. “They’re not my boyfriends. I’ve genuinely never even met them in person!”


Lu Shifeng arched an eyebrow, implying something deeper. “Is that so?”


Jian Luo wished he could disappear.


This was worse than being caught red-handed!


What had he done wrong for this dream scenario to treat him this way? Did he desecrate the ancestral graves of the Elf Clan in his past life?!


Lu Shifeng smirked coldly, “Placing orders without meeting in person, calling to inquire about well-being? Morning calls?”


“This…” Jian Luo choked up, “I can swear they’re just viewers of my livestream, I have no other intentions. And they’re around forty to fifty years old, they could practically be my father! How could there be anything? Trust me, we’ve never even met in person!”


As the words fell, the atmosphere grew colder.


Jian Luo, in his haste, blurted without much thought. It was only after he said it that he realized, while in human years, forty to fifty might be considered older, in the Dragon Clan, Lu Shifeng could be four to five hundred years old!


Sure enough, Jian Luo cautiously lifted his head, only to see the Marshal’s darkened expression. The atmosphere became somewhat awkward. After his unplanned confession, he had completely dug himself into a pit. No, he needed to salvage this situation somehow!


Upon thinking about it, Jian Luo said, “Um, you have to believe me, I really…”


“Ding ling ling.”


Another phone ring echoed.


Cold sweat poured down Jian Luo’s body in an instant. This phone ring was almost like a death knell. No matter who it was this time, he wouldn’t answer! He swore!


Lu Shifeng glanced indifferently and smirked, “Since it’s no big deal, just answer.”


Jian Luo awkwardly replied, “I-it’s not necessary.”


Lu Shifeng’s gaze turned cold. “Are you scared?”


“…Not scared.”


Jian Luo reluctantly picked up the phone, praying that this guy had dialed the wrong number, hoping not to stir trouble for himself.


As the call connected, a cheerful voice sounded, “Luo Luo, you finally picked up! Are you awake? I happen to be on a business trip to City A and wanted to meet you. I’ve seen your live streams and found you to be a very cute guy. I really want to get to know you offline. Can I?”




Yeah, right.

Chapter 109 – Protecting the Big or Small

Chapter 109 – Protecting the Big or Small


After returning from the banquet, Jian Luo could feel the power of the fruit.


Nowadays, he felt energetic. Not to mention reading, studying, or writing, even staying up all night didn’t make him tired at all.


Jian Luo, who rarely looked in the mirror for eight hundred years, said, “I feel like I’ve become a bit more handsome, haven’t I?”


Lu Shifeng, not far away, didn’t bother to turn his head, “Is that so?”


“Yeah, I feel like my skin has improved, and I seem to have grown a bit taller. My eyes also have a sparkle.” Jian Luo shook his head in front of the mirror, “Haven’t you noticed?”


Lu Shifeng just gave a casual “Hmm,” and said, “I noticed.”




Such an indifferent man.


Jian Luo snorted lightly, “Look if you want to, or don’t.”


Lu Shifeng finally took his gaze away from the documents, turned his head elegantly, and glanced at him, “Jian Luo.”


“What?” Jian Luo asked.


Lu Shifeng said, “Don’t care too much about appearances.”


Jian Luo blushed, “I’m not bothered; I was just talking!”


Lu Shifeng nodded, “Hmm, it’s okay. Dragon clan members usually inherit the majestic appearance of their fathers, so you don’t have to worry about them.”




What does this indifferent man mean?


There’s really nothing to talk about with such a stubborn guy. After tidying up, Jian Luo went to work. To facilitate product delivery, he had already opened an online store on the interstellar network. Currently, the only product available is dried fruits.


Most of the dried fruits have arrived now. The next step is dealing with reviews and after-sales issues. To handle these matters more efficiently, Jian Luo specifically set up a room as their workspace.


Vivi was discussing something with Anya.


Jian Luo entered, “What are you talking about?”


“Boss.” Vivi, always the most resourceful of the three, approached him, “When we were handling after-sales orders just now, we suspected someone deliberately cashing out.”


“What?” Jian Luo asked.


Vivi led him over and pointed at several orders on the screen, “Although these five orders have different addresses, we just discovered that their contact numbers are the same. Moreover, they are in the same area. Just now, these five orders simultaneously requested a refund, claiming quality issues, but the other party refused to upload photos of the problems.”


Jian Luo bent down to take a look. He said, “Can you trace the account ID of the orders?”


Vivi nodded, “Five new accounts, all participating in group purchases. Our group purchase rules require different accounts.”


Jian Luo thought for a moment, “In that case, later, send him a text, asking him to upload photos of the quality issues. Otherwise, reject the refund.”


Vivi agreed, “Alright, I’ll do that.”


Knowing they were working hard, Jian Luo happened to have a small kitchen next to the office. So, he went in to prepare some fruit platters to bring out for them.


As he was about to do so, Vivi’s voice came from nearby, “Boss, he replied.”


Judging by her tone, Jian Luo could tell it was a refusal. He walked out and looked at the screen. The person on the screen was confidently stating, “You promised a refund for quality issues. The goods were already rotten when I received them. How can I keep rotten things at home? I’ve already thrown them away without taking photos. Now refund me immediately, or I will expose you online, complain to the end.”


Vivi sighed, “What should we do?”


After a moment of contemplation, Jian Luo said, “Grant him the refund.”




Several elves were shocked.


Jian Luo sat down on the nearby sofa, “We approach this rationally, but if this incident is exposed, other consumers will only know that our after-sales service is poor and refuses compensation. Even if there are rational people, the power of rumors is frightening. Misinformation spreads, and our reputation among the public will suffer. The potential fallout from losing the money from these five orders could lead to us losing 50 more orders and damage our image in the eyes of the public.”


Vivi bit her lip, finally nodding, “Understood.”


Jian Luo patted her shoulder, comforting her gently, “It’s okay.”


Though Vivi was still angry, she understood the bigger picture. In the end, she processed the refund for that person. Elves who had never experienced the cunning of the human heart were thoroughly frustrated.


To lighten the mood, Jian Luo decided to go back and prepare a big meal for them at noon to replenish their energy.


Vivi and the others, after a brief period of frustration, regrouped. Considering the high volume of inquiries and after-sales orders to review, they couldn’t afford to waste time on one person. Everything seemed to have settled down, but gradually, Anya noticed something amiss, “Vivi, come take a look.”


Vivi walked over.


Anya pulled up the documents, pulled down nearly 500 orders, and said, “In just the past 10 minutes, these 1,000 orders have applied for refunds one after another, all claiming quality issues. However, they haven’t uploaded any photos of the quality issues, and the reasons all state that the dried fruits have already been thrown away.”


Vivi frowned deeply.


Cai Cai, the elf who rarely spoke, spoke up, “Although these orders have different addresses, they are in the same galaxy. Interestingly, most of them belong to the same group.”


If the speculation was correct, then it was almost certain that the entire group was maliciously cashing out.


Vivi said, “It must be because we granted a refund to the first person, and they informed others, so now everyone is imitating.”


Anya looked at the number of orders, “If these people inform another group, we’ll face a massive wave of returns.”


This problem was becoming very serious.


The elves had never seen such shameless behavior. Vivi found Jian Luo and roughly explained the situation.


Jian Luo squinted, “No photos at all?”


Vivi replied, “None.”


“Send a message to all of them, demanding photo uploads,” Jian Luo said. “If there’s no upload, reject them all.”


Vivi nodded, “Alright.”


As it was impossible for them to have the photos, over 500 refund requests were all rejected.


While Jian Luo was cooking, just when everyone thought things were settling down, Cai Cai, who was in charge of online customer service, said, “What is StarNet?”


Jian Luo, now highly sensitive to any potential issues, asked, “What’s going on?”


Cai Cai replied, “I’ve received many inquiries asking if what’s said on StarNet is true.”


Jian Luo knew it wasn’t good. He quickly logged into StarNet and found himself trending on the hot search:


# Livestream Host Jian Luo’s Product Mishap #


The most trending blogger made a statement:


“When we received the goods, all the dried fruits had already gone bad. We immediately contacted Jian Luo’s customer service, but the promised refund was simply non-existent. The customer service was unyielding. We were initially looking forward to it and trusted them, but the result is just like this. Humanity is a race with no achievements, why can’t we farm properly?”


This trending topic soared to the top.


Surprisingly, there were quite a few agreeing comments:


“I agree, the dried fruits I received are not tasty at all.”


“They ask for photos for returns, did I ask them to upload photos when I made the purchase?”


“I also think it tastes awful.”


“Just after money, humans have such an unsightly appearance. Are we that short of money?”


Jian Luo calmly read through the comments and said to Vivi, “Let’s privately chat with those who mentioned issues with the dried fruits. If there’s a problem, we’ll issue a refund. Customer service needs to be handled well.”


Vivi said, “No need to ask, most people’s Star Webs and shopping accounts are linked. I’ll check it out.”


Searching through the large orders, the one who just mentioned the bad taste, Vivi looked and then said to Jian Luo, “This person received the goods yesterday, placed another order today, and has approached Cai Cai expressing approval of the dried fruit taste. She requested a discount for the second purchase from Cai Cai, but she was already on a group-buying price, which is already very favorable. So, Cai Cai refused.”




Jian Luo’s mouth twitched.


Anya on the side said, “Why are these people like this, spreading rumors with just a mouth.”


This trending topic now had even higher heat. Jian Luo thought for a moment and said, “I’ll reply to them.”


Jian Luo logged into his main account and replied to the highest-trending netizen’s Weibo, “Hello, I’m Jian Luo. We’ve understood your situation. Firstly, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused. It’s only right to refund for problematic dried fruits. Requesting photos is not meant to trouble you. Before packing, to ensure quality and taste, we used the best freezing chain and transportation.”


“We need the photos for two reasons: firstly, to analyze the problem in the process of the dried fruits going bad for improvement in the future, and secondly, as the origin of the dried fruits is the Elf Clan, elf mages also need photos for analyzing the quality. We hope for your understanding.”


His reply quickly made it to the trending topics, and there were also rational voices below:


“Without photos, who knows if it’s real or fake.”


“Isn’t this bullying people?”


“Knowing they are humans, taking advantage of such a weak race for cheap deals?”


“Don’t bully him, okay? He’s still pregnant. If anything happens to the Dark Star, you’ll be responsible, right?”


The blogger who received Jian Luo’s direct response probably didn’t expect such a straightforward reply. Moreover, the swift change in public opinion caught everyone off guard. Having dominated arrogantly for years, being countered by a human was hard to accept.


Just when Jian Luo thought the matter had concluded, the blogger suddenly released photos with a caption: “I found these dried fruits in the trash. Please assist with the refund. Thank you for not turning a blind eye.”


The attached photos showed slightly dirty dried fruits. At first glance, there seemed to be no issue, but some parts were indeed moldy and blackened. With the release of these photos, public opinion on the internet shifted again:


“Live streams indeed don’t have good products.”


“Whoever buys falls for it.”


“I was planning to buy, thanks for the heads up.”


Jian Luo called Vivi, “Are these our dried fruits?”


Vivi, Anya, and a few others gathered to inspect. After careful examination, they reached a conclusion, “These are indeed our dried fruits.”


A heavy silence filled the room.


The somber atmosphere gradually spread. Initially, everyone was happy with the business’s high sales. Even though the profit per person wasn’t exceptionally large after splitting, everyone was motivated. From production to packaging, they even communicated multiple times with the logistics team linked to Yuemoon.


They all wanted to do their best, treating every consumer with care. They thought it would be a perfect transaction, but unexpectedly, they encountered such a significant setback at the beginning.


Vivi sighed, “How did it come to this?”


Anya patted her shoulder, “It’s okay, we’ll do better next time.”


They all unconsciously looked at Jian Luo. Since earlier, he had been staring at the photo without moving his eyes, showing a deep sense of shock.


After a moment of hesitation, Anya spoke, “Luo Luo…”


Jian Luo said, “Wait, I’ll be back soon.”


He sent the photo to Jiang Jiang. Although Jinjiang always crashed, as the former sole programmer of Jinjiang, the little prince who single-handedly supported the entire website, Jiang Jiang was very capable.


Jian Luo said, “Check if there’s an issue with this image.”


Jiang Jiang’s response was always quick, “Wait a moment.”


Without the need for explanation from one and a plea not to explain from the other, after a few minutes, Jiang Jiang returned, “Yes, there seems to be tampering with this image. If you want it fixed, I’ll do it for you tonight.”


Jian Luo said, “Thanks, I’ll treat you to dinner when I get back.”


“Take care of yourself. Now that the months are advanced, I’ll treat you to dinner when you return safely,” Jiang Jiang sighed, “Let’s not be so polite between us.”


Jian Luo smiled.


Knowing that there was room for things to happen, he felt relieved. In the afternoon, Lu Shifeng scheduled another prenatal checkup for him. Judging by the time, it was about time to go.


During this checkup, the doctor was very satisfied with his health condition and reminded him, “The due date should be approaching. Our ordinary dragon cubs usually only need a gestation period of 6 months. However, your body is not in good condition, and you’re carrying three. To mature them all will increase the burden on your body, hence the delayed due date. But it’s okay. According to my estimation, your due date might be advancing. If everything goes well, it should be in three months.”


Jian Luo remembered it was four months earlier, “One month in advance.”


The doctor nodded, leaning down to look at Jian Luo’s belly, “They are developing well, but from today onwards, you need to exercise more. There should be a proper amount of daily physical activity to ensure that the children can grow up healthy and strong.”


Jian Luo nodded.


“Moreover, you are now entering the final stage. This stage is the peak period for prenatal depression. This kind of depression is not external but physiological. So, if you feel sad or unhappy with life, you can communicate with the Marshal or someone you trust in a timely manner. You don’t need to feel embarrassed; it’s all normal.”


Jian Luo: “Depression?”


He had always felt that this term was distant from himself.


The doctor glanced at Lu Shifeng beside him and said, “Yes, depression. You need to adjust your mentality. I will also inform the Marshal and the others.”


Jian Luo smiled, “I won’t have depression, don’t worry. At most, I’m concerned about whether this child will be easy to deliver. When I watched documentaries before, some mothers screamed in pain, and some had difficult deliveries. At this time, families would discuss whether to prioritize the older or the younger ones in their family…”


The doctor stared at him in shock.


Jian Luo choked up. That was something normal families would discuss, but his words didn’t need asking as oftentimes, no one would prioritize the older one, right?

Chapter 108 – Preference

Chapter 108 – Preference


Jian Luo stood quietly outside, listening in silence.


Lu Shifeng, on the other hand, was quicker to react. The marshal took a step forward, ready to kick the door, his face icy and stern, resembling a grim reaper on a mission.


Jian Luo widened his eyes and quickly grabbed him, “Stop!”


Lu Shifeng halted.


Jian Luo’s gaze held a hint of pleading as he shook his head, “Don’t…”


Although they were stopped in time, their commotion still drew attention in the courtyard. A woman’s voice echoed, “Who’s there?”


Jian Luo felt a bit flustered just as he was about to pull Lu Shifeng away.




A warning sound rang out, and Jian Luo opened his eyes, waking up.


He saw the familiar ceiling and sighed in relief, slowly sitting up, “Are we awake?”


Lu Shifeng, beside him, opened his eyes and glanced at him.


Jian Luo also recalled the events outside the courtyard. He felt he could explain, “I didn’t mean to keep it from you. I just thought…”


Lu Shifeng lifted an eyebrow, “Thought what?”


“I thought she wasn’t entirely wrong,” Jian Luo spoke calmly, “She’s not my biological mother, but she raised me, provided food and shelter. That’s already enough. As for the rest…”


Jian Luo pursed his lips, “Forget it, I’m not really fond of sweets anyway.”


Lu Shifeng watched him in silence.


Jian Luo wasn’t one to dwell in sadness for long. He quickly adjusted and said, “Fortunately, we woke up early. It would have been troublesome if we were discovered.”


Lu Shifeng’s voice was indifferent, “What if we’re discovered?”


“…I might be subjected to torture,” Jian Luo shuddered at the mere thought, “Anyway, it would be quite miserable.”


Lu Shifeng scoffed, “They dare lay a hand on you?”


Jian Luo hesitated.


But at the same time, he couldn’t deny a certain touch of gratitude. The feeling of being protected was quite novel. It wasn’t easy to express, but there was a profound emotional impact.


Jian Luo sighed, a smile returning to his face. “Well, they definitely won’t be able to hit me, especially with you around.”


Lu Shifeng glanced at him.


“After all this time, I don’t really care anymore,” Jian Luo nodded.


Lu Shifeng lightly pursed his lips, “Is that so?”


“Yeah,” Jian Luo confirmed.


Lu Shifeng looked away. What bothered him wasn’t the woman’s words; it was the injured look in Jian Luo’s eyes when he stood there. Perhaps even Jian Luo himself didn’t realize how much sadness filled his eyes at that moment.


He had seen many sides of Jian Luo—happy, sad, guilty, playful, triumphant—but never that particular expression. Standing there, silent, eyes flickering with sadness that seemed to envelop his entire being.


At that moment, a sense of unease inexplicably arose in Lu Shifeng’s heart. The Marshal didn’t think too much; it was an instinctive protective feeling. He wanted everyone inside to shut up, cradling Jian Luo carefully. He wouldn’t allow anyone to harm him.




Another warning sound came from outside.


Jian Luo said, “It seems like it just rang. Actually, I’ve been meaning to ask, is someone outside?”


Lu Shifeng glanced outside and calmly said, “Come in.”


The door opened, revealing Secretary Jin standing outside.


There were curtains on the wooden bed, blocking the view from Secretary Jin. Jian Luo could see a silhouette through the curtains.


Secretary Jin said, “My Lord, an urgent message has arrived from His Majesty. He requests your immediate attention.”


Lu Shifeng frowned, displeased, “How urgent can it be? Is he in a hurry to die?”




I can’t respond to that.


Secretary Jin sighed, “I didn’t want to disturb you, but His Majesty has sent 30 urgent messages in the last half hour.”


Lu Shifeng, still displeased, was about to retort when Jian Luo quickly intervened, “Just take a look. What if it’s something important?”


As the words fell, Lu Shifeng’s expression improved, “Bring it here.”


Secretary Jin’s mouth twitched slightly, handing the messages to Lu Shifeng. Lu Shifeng opened the communication, and as soon as he did, the Emperor’s annoying voice echoed, “Uncle, it’s been a while! Missed you so much!”


Lu Shifeng couldn’t be bothered to respond.


“When you see this letter, I’ll be almost there!” The Emperor danced around on the video call, “Surprised, aren’t you?”


Lu Shifeng’s eyelid twitched, a foreboding feeling settling in his heart.


Sure enough, the Emperor continued, “Not only me, but the High Priest is also here. You must be thrilled to see him after so long. Don’t worry; we’ll be there soon!”


The video ended.


Lu Shifeng’s face turned as dark as ink.


Sensing something was wrong, Jian Luo asked, “What’s going on?”


Jian Luo blurted out, “No way!”


Lu Shifeng was quite satisfied; it seemed that Jian Luo understood that these two people shouldn’t have come in the first place.


Jian Luo covered his head, “Oh my, oh my, I haven’t finished my homework!”


Unable to sleep, Jian Luo said, “I’ll go study. Otherwise, my teacher will kill me. Help me stall for some time. If they ask, say I’m studying.”




The next day.


The Emperor and his entourage arrived. According to him, being immersed in administrative affairs on Dark Star made it easy to be misled. So, he wanted to make a disguised visit to deeply understand the sentiments of the people.


To this, Lu Shifeng remarked, “He’s just too free.”


As soon as the Emperor landed, he came to see Jian Luo. He opened his arms in a hugging gesture, “Luo Luo!”


The cute little child hadn’t changed at all, with round big eyes and an innocent chubby face that melted hearts.


Jian Luo also opened his arms, wanting to hug him. However, as the Emperor approached, Lu Shifeng stood between the two, his face stern like a guardian deity. The Emperor felt he might have been scared to death if he hadn’t reacted quickly.


Lu Shifeng said, “He’s older now, can’t be rushed at.”


The Emperor hurriedly said, “I can be gentle.”


“No, it might startle him.”




The Emperor was quite hurt. He looked at Jian Luo, but Jian Luo gazed at the back where Zhan Wentai was. The High Priest remained untainted, with an aloof demeanor. However, Jian Luo could always detect the teacher’s gaze from those eyes, which was quite troublesome.


Awkwardly, he smiled, “Hello, teacher.”


Zhan Wentai nodded and immediately said, “In these months, your studies haven’t fallen behind, have they?”




Zhan Wentai praised, “That’s good.”


Jian Luo felt guilty and secretly prepared to catch up on his studies in the next few days, trying to cover the progress he had missed before the High Priest’s exams.


Because the Emperor had come, the Elf King would surely come to welcome him. The Elf Kingdom might not excel in many things, but hosting feasts and dances was their specialty. Although the Emperor claimed it was a disguised visit, he had come looking for Lu Shifeng, making it a significant event. It wasn’t hidden from the Elf King. Therefore, on that night, the palace hosted a grand banquet.


Lu Shifeng looked at Jian Luo with confusion. He saw the marshal produce a crystal-clear, golden fruit from somewhere, saying, “The sacred fruit of the elf clan, try it.”


Jian Luo was pleasantly surprised, “Where did it come from?”


Lu Shifeng lightly parted his thin lips, “Gifted by the Elf King. The elf tree bears fruit only once every hundred years, and it’s for you.”


Jian Luo unconsciously opened his mouth wide, “Is it okay for me to have it?”


Just when he was filled with excitement, Lu Shifeng unexpectedly added, “His Majesty is the emperor. If he wants to eat, he can negotiate with the Elf King. Offering the fruit to you is already clever enough. Lord Nie is wealthy and doesn’t need it.”


“So,” Lu Shifeng picked up the fruit and put it in his mouth, “this is for you alone.”


The fruit melted in his mouth, sweet and delightful, as if sweetness had instantly traveled from his mouth to his heart.


There was a light drizzle falling from the sky. Jian Luo lowered his head, sniffed, and tiptoed, wrapping his hands around Lu Shifeng’s waist, giving him a hug, buzzing, “Thank you.”


Suddenly, he understood why the place he missed the most in his dreams was the one filled with childhood memories of pain.


What he longed for, yearned for, was not that place but a home.


He yearned for a lifetime to have a home, a place where someone would cherish him. He hoped to get a share of his own sweetness.

Chapter 107 – Otherwise, Luo Luo is back.

Chapter 107 – Otherwise, Luo Luo is back.


The knocking outside the door continued.


Jian Luo had no choice but to grit his teeth and go out. Since he got pregnant, his body had become quite heavy. Suddenly feeling lightheaded, he almost stumbled, unable to control his walking posture and strength.


Outside, Tie Zhu saw Jian Luo almost stumbling in the yard through the crack in the door. He shouted, holding his neck, “Luo Luo, are you okay?”


Jian Luo bypassed the chicken droppings in the yard and took off the door latch. “I’m fine.”


In front of him stood the memory of Tie Zhu, with dark skin and a naive smile, all revealing the simplicity of a rural guy. He looked at Jian Luo, suddenly took something out of his pocket, and asked, “Luo Luo, guess what I brought for you?”


Jian Luo was feeling guilty at the moment and asked, “What?”


Tie Zhu grabbed his hand and walked into the house, saying, “This kind of treasure can’t be talked about at the door. Come in!”


“Hey, you…”


Due to the huge difference in strength, Jian Luo couldn’t resist being pulled in. Now, in his heart, he was on the verge of collapse. Before he could react to everything, Tie Zhu and Lu Shifeng in the room locked eyes.


One was a rural guy wearing coarse clothes, while the other turned out to be a military marshal in traditional military attire. The two stood in opposition, creating a strangely bizarre scene.


The atmosphere became extremely awkward.


A somewhat dangerous tension inexplicably spread in the air.


Jian Luo’s scalp tingled. “Um…”


Both Tie Zhu and Lu Shifeng looked at him simultaneously, asking, “Who is he?”


“Um…” Jian Luo’s eyes wandered, “It’s like this, listen to my explanation, don’t get too excited.”


Jian Luo’s gaze moved back and forth between Tie Zhu and Lu Shifeng. Finally, he took a deep breath and said to Tie Zhu, “He is my distant cousin, surnamed Lu.”


Tie Zhu couldn’t believe it. “Aren’t you an orphan?”




Jian Luo insisted, “What nonsense are you talking about? I am a member of the Jian family, and he is my distant cousin from the Jian family.”


As soon as these words came out, Tie Zhu felt a bit guilty. He was not very bright and often said the wrong things. Now he had inadvertently embarrassed Jian Luo again. Tie Zhu was straightforward. After some self-reflection, he took a step forward, actively and warmly patting Lu Shifeng’s arm, “Brother, which village are you from, and why are you dressed like this?”


Jian Luo widened his eyes, never expecting that a slip of the tongue would magnify his cousin’s identity!


However, the catastrophic scene he anticipated where people would be in trouble did not occur. Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow, looking at Jian Luo. He repeated, “Cousin?”


Jian Luo choked.


A cold smile appeared on Lu Shifeng’s lips, giving Jian Luo a chilling feeling.


Tie Zhu was oblivious to Jian Luo’s cautiousness and nervousness, lacking any survival instinct. He said, “You are Luo Luo’s cousin, so from today, you are my cousin too. Rest assured, coming here is like coming to your own home. If you have any difficulties, just speak up, and I will do my best!”


Lu Shifeng withdrew his gaze from Jian Luo and focused it on Tie Zhu. “What’s your relationship with him?”


Jian Luo’s heart skipped a beat.


As a rough man, Tie Zhu had never experienced such questioning before. A faint blush appeared on his dark face, and he said, “Hey, do we still need to ask about this?”




Please, just shut up.


Jian Luo cleared his throat lightly and said, “Tie Zhu is my elder brother, and he usually takes good care of me.”


Can’t control it anymore. Just treat it as a dream. May God forgive this bad man! Mainly, he didn’t want to die now!


Lu Shifeng lightly lifted his thin lips and repeated, “Elder brother?”


Thinking that Jian Luo was just shy, Tie Zhu didn’t insist. “Yep, calling me elder bro is fine too!”



A silence filled the room.


Though it seemed like the explanation was clear, the awkward yet mysterious atmosphere did not dissipate.


Jian Luo decided to shift the topic a bit and said to Tie Zhu, “Uh, Tie, didn’t you say you brought something for me? What is it?”


At the mention of this, Tie Zhu became enthusiastic. He suddenly pulled out a large wooden sculpture from his pants, handed it to Jian Luo like a treasure, and said with great enthusiasm, “Luo Luo, I made this myself. Look, this is me, and this one is you. It represents us being together forever, never parting.”




They are two separate sculptures, and you say never parting, big brother, are you kidding me?


Jian Luo didn’t bother to look at the wooden carvings. He cast a somewhat timid glance at Lu Shifeng not far away, locking eyes with those red pupils, feeling a bit pressured.


His survival instinct was still strong. He stuffed the wooden carving into Tie Zhu’s hands and hastily found a reason, “Uh, Tie Zhu, since they are never to part, it’s better to keep them together for good luck, don’t you think?”


Tie Zhu looked at Jian Luo in confusion.


Jian Luo wiped the sweat off his forehead and said to Tie Zhu, “Alright, alright, you’ve delivered the gift. Hurry back; I’ll find you another time.”


“No, Luo Luo…”


“Nothing to wait for; go quickly!”






The door was closed.


Having sent away this time bomb, he finally breathed a sigh of relief, turned to look at Lu Shifeng, feeling a bit guilty. “My big brother just likes to joke. Don’t mind him.”


Lu Shifeng tapped the table with his slender fingers and said calmly, “How many is he? Your ex-boyfriend.”




“Your history of boyfriends.”




You remember that?


Jian Luo recalled the times when he had mentioned his ex-boyfriends to Lu Shifeng and said awkwardly, “None.”


Lu Shifeng asked, “Shall I go ask for you?”


“Well, the first one.” Jian Luo sighed, “But he was an honest guy. We only held hands at most. Not long after, he got married, so we didn’t have much interaction.”


Can’t compete with Lu Shifeng; the old man hits a home run right from the start!


Lu Shifeng seemed satisfied with this information. “Hmm.”



Jian Luo decided to do something to lighten the mood. He heard the pigs outside, realizing, “Oh, I haven’t fed the pigs.”


Thinking of this, he rushed outside.


Feeding the pigs involved a somewhat troublesome process and procedure, especially the bucket, which was heavy to lift. People in the countryside would collect green leaves from the mountains, dry and crush them. A bucket of green soup with some added ingredients was sufficient for pig feeding.


Jian Luo skillfully prepared everything quickly. Just as he was about to lift the bucket, Lu Shifeng took a step ahead and picked it up.


Jian Luo: “Don’t carry it, it’s dirty.”


Lu Shifeng glanced at him: “Where should I put it?”




Jian Luo pointed to the pig trough. In this lifetime, who could have imagined seeing Lu Shifeng, with his precious hands that usually held guns, carrying a pig food bucket? The tall and handsome man, dressed in a neat military uniform, holding a shiny green bucket, stood in front of the pigsty pouring food while the pigs squealed. The scene looked amusing no matter how you looked at it.


Jian Luo chuckled.


Lu Shifeng turned around: “What’s so funny?”


“It just feels so out of place.” Jian Luo, with a smile in his eyes, patted his flat abdomen. “I never thought you would do these things again. Actually, I can do it myself; I’m not pregnant right now.”


Lu Shifeng placed the bucket aside: “Feeding a pig is nothing. In the military, during special circumstances, what we eat is worse than what it eats.”




Jian Luo’s smile froze on his face.


Lu Shifeng walked to the nearby water tank to wash his hands and casually said, “Helping you with tasks doesn’t depend on whether you’re pregnant or not.”


Jian Luo’s eyes widened: “Huh?”


He could hardly believe what he heard. He always thought that the care he received was because of the child. But today, the Marshal said such things. Could it be that, even without a child, he could still be treated well?


Lu Shifeng glanced at him: “Any questions?”




After feeding the pig, Jian Luo remembered that the vegetables in the field needed to be harvested. Although it was a dream, he decided to follow the dream’s rules. Since Lu Shifeng hadn’t come back for a long time, it was a good opportunity to explore.


Thinking of this, Jian Luo said to Lu Shifeng, “Do you want to see our village? You’ve probably never seen a place like this.”


Lu Shifeng said, “Seen it.”




Lu Shifeng didn’t elaborate: “Let’s go.”


Jian Luo was afraid that others might see him, so he added, “Would you mind changing your clothes first?”


Suddenly, he remembered that he didn’t know what possessed him before to learn sewing and make clothes for his lover. He still had a set of clothes for Tie Zhu, who was a bit shorter than Lu Shifeng but could make do.


Lu Shifeng swept his eyes over Jian Luo’s body with a meaningful look: “What about your clothes?”




Who was looking down on whom!


Angrily, Jian Luo rummaged through the wardrobe and handed over the poorly made clothes to Lu Shifeng: “Here, try these.”


Lu Shifeng took the gown without showing any disdain, went to another place to change, while Jian Luo fantasized in place about how the Marshal would look in the clothes he made.



The door creaked.


He turned around and saw Lu Shifeng wearing his poorly crafted gown – a blue and white combination that seemed like a deathly color scheme. The tight-fitting clothes had a few unfinished seams, yet this appalling outfit strangely exuded a sense of high-fashion on Lu Shifeng.


The saying goes, “Clothes make the man,” but for some inherently beautiful people, it’s all about the clothes coming to the rescue. Clearly, a beggar’s attire on someone’s body could inexplicably transform into a limited edition fashion statement.


Jian Luo praised, “It actually looks quite good.”


Lu Shifeng asked, “Made for your big brother Tie Zhu?”




Jian Luo stammered, “No, definitely not.”


“Is it?” Lu Shifeng pointed to the cuff, where an extremely unattractive “iron[/mfn]Tie1” character was embroidered. “What’s this?”


Oh no, forgot about that.


Jian Luo tried to sound resolute: “My heart is like iron, strong!”




Lu Shifeng looked at his struggling appearance and couldn’t help but find it amusing.


After some fuss, they finally left. On the rural path, you would often encounter chickens or dogs from neighboring households taking a stroll. Along the way, any dog that saw Lu Shifeng would inexplicably tuck its tail and run away.


Jian Luo laughed, “Scaredy-cats.”


Lu Shifeng glanced at him indifferently.


Jian Luo stopped laughing, “Uh, what I meant to say is that they seem quite discerning.”




Many people on the road also cast glances at Marshal Lu, but Jian Luo mostly ignored them. He didn’t have much presence in the village anyway, so it didn’t matter.


They arrived at the cornfield, the sun shining brightly. The corn was growing well, but there were quite a few weeds below.


Jian Luo sighed, “Alright, let’s get to work!”


He was diligent in his tasks, ready to start pulling weeds. Lu Shifeng squatted down behind him and said, “Go rest over there.”


Jian Luo was stunned.


Lu Shifeng said, “I’ll take care of this.”




After feeding pigs, now there was weeding service?


Jian Luo didn’t actually leave, “You haven’t done farm work before. How about I show you? Consider it a new experience.”


Lu Shifeng replied, “I’ve done it before.”


Jian Luo was genuinely surprised this time, “Ah?”


Lu Shifeng squatted down to weed and said while moving, “Back in Dragon Valley.”


Hearing the mention of Dragon Valley, Jian Luo couldn’t help but feel a wave of sadness. He always felt that the place hadn’t brought much happiness to Lu Shifeng.


Since it’s a sad place, let’s not dwell on it.

The two of them pulled weeds together for a while. The sun was too intense, so Jian Luo sat by the bank for a bit, drank some water, and then washed his face in the nearby ditch. When he was about to find a towel to wipe his face, he unexpectedly pulled out a small comic book from his pocket.


He was startled, opened the book, and inside were densely packed, somewhat distorted characters—all his own handwriting. Time had passed so long that seeing the comic book in his hand now felt complex.


Lu Shifeng walked up behind him: “What are you looking at?”


“Huh?” Jian Luo said, “A comic book.”


Lu Shifeng took a glance at what he held: “Study materials from here?”


“No, it’s for entertainment, but I use it for studying.” Jian Luo looked at the pages in his hand and inexplicably said, “Actually, I haven’t had much formal education.”


Lu Shifeng silently watched him.


Jian Luo’s voice was indifferent: “Our family was poor. We could only send two to school, and one had to stay home to help with chores. But if I finished my work quickly, I could go outside the school window to listen. When my sister and brother came home to do homework, if they were happy, I could learn a bit too.”


Lu Shifeng asked, “You want to learn?”


Jian Luo sighed, “Coming from the countryside, who doesn’t want to change their fate through knowledge?”


It was because he had suffered that he wanted his younger siblings to go to the best schools. Many elders imposed their regrets on their children, and he was no exception.


Lu Shifeng sat down beside him, “It’s not very apparent.”


Jian Luo asked, “What?”


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow, looking somewhat teasingly at him, “Like when the High Priest taught you.”




How could they be the same!


The atmosphere tensed for a moment. Jian Luo’s face turned red, and he argued, “I used to want to study to go to college and change my fate. When the High Priest taught me, I was already grown up. What fate could I change? Besides, he was clearly teaching prenatal education!”


Lu Shifeng’s deep red eyes looked at him seriously, “Is that what you thought?”


Jian Luo choked.


“Changing fate depends not on planning but on action.” Lu Shifeng’s voice was deep and magnetic, “It’s not too late now. Waiting for the next second is already late.”


Holding the small comic book, Jian Luo seemed lost in thought.


Lu Shifeng said, “You’ve gained access to many resources that others can’t touch. Every day you can learn from these people is an immeasurable treasure. This is your chance. Use the resources that can be utilized while you still have control.”


Jian Luo asked, “Utilize?”


He hadn’t expected Lu Shifeng to use that word. If they talked about resources, was he using Lu Shifeng, or was Lu Shifeng also using him?


Suddenly, Jian Luo felt a bit confused.


But Lu Shifeng didn’t give him much time to think, “We’ve finished weeding. Let’s go back.”


Jian Luo nodded.


As they walked back, when they reached the house door, Jian Luo noticed that the relatives who came for a visit had returned. He stood at the entrance and could hear voices from inside.


A woman’s voice came, “Da Mao, your aunt asked you to bring back the sugar?”


The sister said, “Here it is.”


“Bring it here. I’ll put it away. You and your brother shouldn’t eat too much; it’s bad for your teeth.”


“Mom, Luo Luo hasn’t eaten it yet.”


“He’s even younger; how can he eat candy!” The woman’s voice carried a hint of reproach. “You and your brother mustn’t tell him we have candy at home, understand?”


The sister nodded, “Understood.”


After a while, the woman remembered, “Oh, I remembered. There’s still a piece of cake here. Can you call your brother to come and split it? Hurry up and eat, or Luo Luo will be back soon.”

Chapter 106 – Simultaneously being cheated on

Chapter 106 – Simultaneously being cheated on


Jian Luo’s birthday song mercilessly continued, and Lu Shifeng struggled to control his expression, trying not to appear too melancholic.


After Jian Luo finished singing, his eyes sparkled as he looked at Lu Shifeng. “How was it?”


Lu Shifeng remained expressionless. “What are you referring to?”


“The song!” Jian Luo observed his expression, feeling a bit uncertain. He scratched his head, a little embarrassed. “Was it off-key? I don’t sing often, so please bear with me…”


Lu Shifeng replied, “No.”


Jian Luo, pleased, said, “I knew it. I think I did exceptionally well just now. It was a decent performance, right?”


Lu Shifeng nodded.


Jian Luo suspiciously looked at him, wanting to gauge Lu Shifeng’s expression. After all, he had worked hard all day, hoping for some reaction from his patron. Unfortunately, after observing for a while, he couldn’t discern any particular reaction. Of course, General Lu was always composed, making it difficult for Jian Luo to judge if he was happy. Jian Luo decided unilaterally that Lu Shifeng was pleased.


Well, the poor child. Hasn’t he ever had a birthday before?


Jian Luo sat down and grabbed Lu Shifeng’s hand. “There’s something else you definitely can’t guess—I made you a cake!”


Lu Shifeng asked, “Really?”


Jian Luo, trusting, said, “Of course. You know, where we come from, there’s a tradition of blowing candles on birthdays. Normally, it’s one candle per year, but considering your age—I heard you’re five hundred years old—I thought I’d go with five candles, just following the procedure.”


Lu Shifeng replied, “Thank you.”


“No problem, not at all.”


Jian Luo led him to the inner room, and sure enough, when he opened the curtain, there was the cake on the round table. The overall design of the cake was incredibly cute. To cater to Lu Shifeng’s preferences, Jian Luo thoughtfully used chocolate to draw a few guns on the edge. In the center of the cake, he drew a cute little black dragon, and—


Inserted some candles on the black dragon’s face.


Lu Shifeng stood by the table, trying hard to maintain his expression. “Did you design this?”


A hint of pride appeared on Jian Luo’s clear face. “It’s not bad. I just did it casually.”




No one praised you.


Looking at the table full of food, all childlike treats—cake, small cheese, desserts, ice cream, dried fruits—all full of childishness, no one could imagine that this was the birthday celebration for the legendary stern and ruthless Marshal.


Lu Shifeng glanced around. Originally, he should have found it amusing, but inexplicably, a strange taste welled up in the Marshal’s heart. This feeling made him feel a bit warm, even though the cake was genuinely poorly designed, and he had lost interest in these snacks long ago.


Jian Luo leaned in and said, “Time is running out, so this is all I could come up with for now. I’ll do something better next time.”


Lu Shifeng glanced at him sideways. “Who gave you this idea?”



Jian Luo said, “Don’t ask such mood-killing questions at a time like this. Also, my candles are almost burnt out. Hurry up and make a wish!”


Lu Shifeng looked puzzled. “Make a wish?”


Oh right, he forgot that the Dark Star people don’t understand Earth’s customs.


Jian Luo walked over, clasped his hands together, and gestured for him to make the motion. “Like this, then silently think about your wish. It might come true this year. Any wish is fine; it’s a rare opportunity. Think it through before making a wish.”


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow. “Human customs?”




Jian Luo, a bit angry, pinched his waist, his cheeks puffed up, grumbling, “Don’t look down on it. Making wishes is powerful. I went through the trouble of getting you five candles!”


Seeing him like this, a slight smile unconsciously appeared on Lu Shifeng’s lips. The smile was fleeting, but under the dim candlelight, his usually stern face seemed to melt, exuding a warmth.


Jian Luo was stunned.


Lu Shifeng closed his eyes, clasped his hands together, and made a brief wish. Soon, he lowered his hands. “Done.”


So fast.


No one would give up their curiosity. Jian Luo was no exception. His gossiping spirit flared up. “What did you wish for?”


Lu Shifeng lifted an eyelid and remained silent.


The more he stayed silent, the more curious Jian Luo became. “World peace?”


It’s not that he wanted to mock Lu Shifeng, but this person might actually make such a wish. Anything was possible with him!


Lu Shifeng replied, “No.”


Jian Luo choked.


“I wished for you to become smarter,” Lu Shifeng lightly opened his lips, mercilessly, “too dull.”




Jian Luo widened his eyes, unable to believe it. His hand trembled as he pointed at himself. “Me, dumb?”


Who could endure this injustice?


Can he still go on living like this?


Is he even speaking human language, this dog of a man!


Lu Shifeng walked over, pulled out a chair, and sat down. “At least not smart enough.”


As Marshal Yuan spoke, he picked up the knife used to cut the cake on the table, intending to slice it. Unexpectedly, Jian Luo, who was beside him, snatched it away in annoyance. He scolded, “Don’t eat something stupidly made by you. What if I become dumb because of you, then you’ll blame me.”


Lu Shifeng looked at him holding the knife with a fierce expression, lacking any threatening aura. Instead, he resembled a small cat that had been wronged, fur standing on end, appearing fierce but adorable, teeth bared and claws out, making him even more tempting to bully.


Lu Shifeng extended his long arm, taking the knife back. “I won’t blame you.”


Jian Luo glared at him.


“I’ve already been influenced by you,” Lu Shifeng cut the cake with a swift motion. “Otherwise, I wouldn’t have ended up in this situation.”


Jian Luo made him relive the powerless moments from the past. It had been a long time since Lu Shifeng faced such a challenging situation, and what made it different was that back then, he could overcome difficulties by forcing himself. However, that approach didn’t work in matters of the heart.


He could force himself, but he couldn’t bear to force Jian Luo.


He could use force and authority to achieve certain goals, but he couldn’t bring himself to employ those methods on Jian Luo.


Jian Luo sat in the chair, somewhat stubborn. “Well, I was already like this. My brain has already formed, and I can’t become smarter.”


Lu Shifeng took a piece of cake. The taste was sweet and sour, as if sweetness traveled from the mouth to the heart, simple yet complex, making it hard to let go. It was completely different from the cakes commonly sold in the market, indicating the dedication put into making it.


Putting down the spoon, Lu Shifeng looked at Jian Luo. “No need to change.”


Jian Luo was puzzled. “What?”


“It’ll be tough if you worry about such things,” Lu Shifeng consoled in a straightforward manner. “Don’t worry; even if you stay foolish, it’s okay.”



Completely failing to ease the tension, Jian Luo got to the point, “Where do you think I’m foolish?”


Lu Shifeng’s finger on the tabletop slightly contracted, the marshal lifted his eyelids, giving Jian Luo a meaningful look with complex emotions.


Jian Luo: ?


Lu Shifeng lightly opened his lips, saying, “In various aspects.”




This meal was impossible to enjoy.


Just as Jian Luo felt stifled, Lu Shifeng presented a cute blue bracelet to him, placing it on the table. “Try wearing it.”


Jian Luo glanced at it, showing determination. “No.”


Lu Shifeng spoke slowly, “This is a developed generation of pain-relief bracelets. Wear it, and injection needle won’t hurt.”


Jian Luo’s eyes lit up. He was about to reach for it but remembered his earlier boast. Clearing his throat, he pretended to be reserved. “I don’t want to wear it for myself. It’s for your son, you know?”


Lu Shifeng didn’t expose him. “Hmm.”


Jian Luo immediately picked up the bracelet and put it on his wrist. He looked around. “Seems like nothing special?”


Lu Shifeng said calmly, “It’s useful in certain special situations.”


“Such as during injections?”


Lu Shifeng’s red eyes seemed to deepen in color. He looked at Jian Luo, his Adam’s apple rolling up and down. Nodding, his voice became somewhat hoarse, “During your injections.”




What are you doing? It’s quite creepy.


After eating, it’s time for a medical examination.


Before wearing the wristband, Jian Luo was obedient, but after putting it on, he took a bold approach: “Today, just check whatever you need!”


The doctor was a bit surprised and glanced at Lu Shifeng.


Lu Shifeng gestured to her, “Just follow the procedure, he’s wearing the wristband.”


Unable to contain her laughter, the doctor said to Jian Luo, “Alright, we will conduct a detailed physical examination for you.”


Jian Luo felt inexplicably uneasy under her laughter.


Fortunately, the doctor was quick in her actions, likely influenced by Jian Luo’s previous reactions. Everything proceeded at the fastest pace to avoid discomfort for both the one inside and those outside, who might wear a stern face.


After receiving the medical report, the doctor went out to find Lu Shifeng.


Lu Shifeng asked, “Is everything okay?”


“All aspects of his health are fine.” The doctor looked at the report. “Luo Luo is quite cooperative. His daily nutrient intake is balanced, and he maintains good nutritional balance, so the dragon cub is developing well.”


Lu Shifeng nodded.


The doctor hesitated as she continued reading, “However, from the preliminary examination of various indicators, there are signs of early prenatal depression.”


Lu Shifeng’s expression didn’t show much surprise. “Already aware.”


The doctor nodded, “Do you plan to return to your journey?”


Prenatal depression in this context does not refer to the emotional state of the pregnant individual but indicates a peculiar phenomenon in female dragons before giving birth. In dragon culture, the Sacred Dragon Mother Tree is the origin of the dragon race, and each dragon forms a special bond with it from the day of consciousness.


Pregnant females and unborn dragon cubs also experience this. As the due date approaches, the female dragon tends to yearn for her homeland and the Mother Tree, displaying various symptoms such as increased temper, irritability towards the partner, loss of appetite, and immersion in sorrow.


The doctor explained, “According to our tests, due to the cub’s development, Luo Luo’s body is now tending towards a normal female dragon’s body structure. Apart from his inability to transform into a dragon, everything else is essentially the same. He is showing this atavistic tendency now. If not intervened, it may have an impact. Would you like to take him back to the sanctuary?”


In the dragon culture, the female dragon’s atavism involves returning to the Mother Tree. If Jian Luo goes home, it would undoubtedly be to his own hometown.


Lu Shifeng didn’t confirm or deny, only saying, “I have arrangements.”


The doctor, sensing the situation, chose not to press further. “Understood.”


Exiting the examination room, Jian Luo noticed that Lu Shifeng had been silent the entire time, his expression tense. It seemed like the examination results were not favorable.


This can’t be good.


Jian Luo rubbed his stomach, feeling a bit uneasy. Could there be a problem?


Jian Luo tentatively said, “Is there a problem with the prenatal examination? Just tell me, I can handle it. Do I need to name this condition after me, or can I just eat whatever I want now, or is it necessary to label it with my name?”


Lu Shifeng halted and turned to look at him, “What’s going on in your head?”




Who told you to scare me.


Jian Luo has been getting angry a lot lately, “So what if there is?”


Lu Shifeng explained the atavistic phenomenon, trying hard to make Jian Luo, whose brain was not particularly quick, understand what this phenomenon meant. He said, “So, which hometown have you been longing for in your heart, the sanctuary?”


Jian Luo choked.


If he had to speak the truth, he didn’t have a particularly deep affection for the sanctuary. In his heart, what he thought of and missed was always Earth. He missed the small stalls in the night market, the gossiping old lady at the village entrance, the lazy life of eating fried chicken while holding a cola, and the joy of playing games all night, then going to the kitchen to cook a pot of instant noodles with ham and sausages.


He missed it all the time, that country without racial discrimination.


Human children were free and equal, everyone lived in harmony, and he wouldn’t have a boyfriend with such disparate social status…


Wait, are they even in a relationship?!


Jian Luo snapped back to reality. He said to Lu Shifeng, “As for me…”


Lu Shifeng interrupted him, “Don’t lie.”




Too difficult.


Jian Luo scratched his head, “My situation might be a bit complicated. How should I put it? Even if what I say doesn’t make much sense, because the place I want to return to is quite special, to be precise, it probably doesn’t exist anymore.”


Lu Shifeng said, “Ancient Earth?”


Jian Luo blurted out, “How do you know?”


As the words fell, he looked at Lu Shifeng’s calm eyes and suddenly understood everything. In fact, he hadn’t deliberately hidden anything, like those exotic dishes, his eating habits, and the things he liked—all of these were not tailored to the humans in the sanctuary.


Upon closer inspection, he had many flaws.


He knew this himself, but he was too lazy to pretend. He wanted to live comfortably. Suddenly arriving in an entirely unfamiliar place, survival and adaptation became challenges.


He didn’t want to make life too hard for himself.


Jian Luo’s throat felt dry, “You knew all along.”


Lu Shifeng reached out, and his large hand, initially intended for his back, ended up gently resting on Jian Luo’s head. His voice was somewhat deep, “I said, don’t worry about such troublesome matters.”

After completing the work coordination, Jian Luo still needs to handle the backend. Now, his private messages are flooded every day—questions about the products, inquiries about various business collaborations, and feedback, all piling up like mountains.


The three elves distribute the workload evenly.


Vivi and Anya are responsible for promotion and after-sales, while another elf, Cai Cai, who is very introverted and shy, is assigned to handle these inquiries by Jian Luo.


Cai Cai sends a message, “Boss, today’s total number of inquiries is 6 million, and there are about 200,000 business collaboration inquiries. I have categorized and compiled the report, sending it to your email for your review.”


Jian Luo is startled by the quantity, “Can you handle all of this, Cai Cai?”


Cai Cai replies, “No problem, I have magical skills.”


She is genuinely afraid of talking to people but enjoys it at the same time. This online customer service mode makes her happy—she can talk to many people without speaking.


Jian Luo hesitates, “Don’t force yourself. If needed, I can hire more people.”


Cai Cai is afraid he might hire more people, “No need, Boss, I can handle it. I really can. Please don’t hire anyone else.”






What else can Jian Luo say? He can only thank the Elf King for this divine assistance.


After a brief meeting with a few employees, Jian Luo starts examining the reports. These big data are crucial for understanding the audience’s preferences and reactions.


In the past, he was alone, earning small profits. But now, with a team and a planet to support, no amount of money seems sufficient.


Lu Shifeng enters from outside, seeing him still working, and frowns, “Don’t look at it for too long.”


Jian Luo nods, “I’ll take a quick look. It would be great to create a report. Later, I’ll have a meeting with Manager Nie to report on the work. I heard there will be an inspection in two days at the latest. I need to double-check, can’t afford any mistakes. Everyone is working so hard; it can’t be in vain.”


Lu Shifeng watches him with a serious expression, feeling strangely nostalgic. He remembers the first time he saw Jian Luo, genuinely thinking humans were small and fragile. At that time, Jian Luo was not as outstanding, timid, physically weak, lacking vitality.


But now, he’s different.


Confident, responsible, exceptionally dazzling, like a gradually glowing jade, gentle yet eye-catching.


Jian Luo says, “I’m going to the meeting.”


Lu Shifeng holds him back, “Tomorrow, have the meeting tomorrow.”



“It’s not until the day after tomorrow. It’s fine to have the meeting tomorrow,” Lu Shifeng points to the screen. “Jian Luo, check the time.”


Jian Luo looks at the time, stunned, “It’s already 11:30?”


Unconsciously, he has been looking for so long. Indeed, it’s too late for a meeting; he can’t disturb people’s rest.


Lu Shifeng, seeing him finally react, is satisfied, “Come, take a break.”


Jian Luo suddenly remembers something he discussed during the day, “Can this bed really take us back to ancient Earth?”


Lu Shifeng responds, “Yes, the bed can take you back to past dreams. But remember, you must not do anything against the consciousness of that dream world. Once the order of the dream is disrupted, you will be trapped inside forever.”


Jian Luo scratches his head, feeling clever, “So even if we go back, we have to live honestly. No robbing banks or walking naked on the street.”




After discussing, the two place their hands on the crystal ball as usual. Jian Luo suddenly thinks of his previous dreams and wants to ask Lu Shifeng if he knows what happened in those dreams. But he’s too afraid to speak up.


Forget it, pretend not to know!


Jian Luo closes his eyes to sleep. He thought it would be difficult to sleep with heavy thoughts, but surprisingly, he falls asleep as soon as he closes his eyes.





A rooster’s crow comes from the window, startling Jian Luo awake.


Jian Luo sits up from the bed, looking at the mosquito net above and the mosquito bloodstains, he has a moment of confusion.


A voice from outside says, “Luo Luo, your father and I are going to visit the Zhang family today. Remember to feed the pig at home and pull the grass in the field.”




Jian Luo’s mind doesn’t react, and he answers, “Okay.”


Then, the sound of the door closing comes from outside as the woman takes the two children and her husband to visit relatives.


Jian Luo slowly sits up. Before he can react, he sees Lu Shifeng sitting on a chair not far away. He startles and covers his mouth, “Master?!”


This is too out of place, a military officer with a cold aura sitting inside a thatched house—it’s just weird!


Lu Shifeng says, “Awake?”


“I’m going.” Jian Luo pats his stomach, which is gone. He slaps himself, looking not too bright. “Are we really in a dream woven by the bed?”


Lu Shifeng says, “Yes, is this the hometown you longed for?”




That bed is a counterfeit product. How could he long for this place?


Jian Luo says, “It’s not exactly, but since we’re here, you can’t wear this. You’ll be gossiped about by other villagers.”


Lu Shifeng asks, “Then what should I wear?”


Jian Luo is in a dilemma. He doesn’t dare to steal clothes from his father and brother. After much thought, just when he’s troubled, there’s a knock on the door. It’s a somewhat honest voice, “Luo Luo, I’ve come to see you. I have no work today and wanted to visit you.”


The knocking is so urgent, almost like urging the soul.


Jian Luo shouts outside, “Wait a moment!”


He was about to open the door to see who it was when he suddenly froze. This voice, isn’t it his first little boyfriend, Tie Zhu, from when he was in the countryside?


Strictly speaking, it couldn’t be considered a relationship, just a bit of puppy love. Because Tie Zhu was the only person in the village who treated him well. Although Tie Zhu was forced to marry later, they separated.


Originally, it wasn’t a big deal; who doesn’t have a few unresolved first loves?


The door outside is still being knocked on, “Luo Luo, Luo Luo, open the door for me!”


Jian Luo feels a bit anxious about the urging. Meanwhile, Lu Shifeng leisurely says, “Why not go see him?”


“Um… I’m going now.”


Strangely, he feels a bit guilty. Outside is the current one, and inside is a wild man with a green hat. How is he going to explain this? Wait a minute, something’s not right. Strictly speaking, the Marshal is his current partner, right? Could it be that he was simultaneously cheating on two men?


No, he hasn’t actually married anyone. How can this be considered so? To top it off; no one was actually in a relationship with him currently!

Chapter 105 – So Anxious

Chapter 105 – So Anxious


The young Lu Shifeng was still too inexperienced, not knowing what tricks Jian Luo, who was in front of him, wanted to play. He only saw the person who was just talking and laughing in front of him suddenly disappear. His body seemed to fall without weight, too fast for anyone to react.


In an instant, Lu Shifeng’s eyes widened, and his body rushed out almost without thinking, without time to consider or prepare.


The sound of wind in his ears. In the past, when he fell, what was he thinking?


Thinking about how to battle the enemy.


Thinking about the resentment and hatred in his heart.


Thinking about how to make everyone shut up.


But at this moment, he didn’t think about anything. He couldn’t think about anything. His eyes were fixed on that falling figure, and his heart tightened painfully.


The distance was getting closer. In the chaotic thoughts, he saw Jian Luo’s eyes. Those eyes were peaceful, steady, without a hint of panic, as if confidently entrusting his life and safety into his hands.


Jian Luo reached out to him: “Lu Shifeng…”


Humans are fragile.


Their bodies can hardly withstand any danger. A fall of a few meters might break their necks.


Sometimes they only know how to call for help.


Otherwise, they die.




A word that Lu Shifeng somewhat repelled and resisted appeared in his mind. His pupils contracted, and the wings behind him almost opened in an instant.


Thunder roared in the sky. Under the huge rocks, the young Lu Shifeng stood in the rain, holding Jian Luo in his arms, his head bowed, and the wings behind him opened in front, shielding the rain for the person in his arms.


Jian Luo sighed in relief, somewhat surprised: “You can fly.”


Lu Shifeng kept his face low, showing no sign of joy. He spoke in a low voice: “Is it fun?”




Jian Luo choked up, a bit cautiously: “Are you angry?”


Lu Shifeng raised his eyelids to look at him, his blood-red eyes crimson. His voice was cold, like a demon: “I’m asking you a question.”


So fierce.


Compared to the arrogant young version of Lu Shifeng before, seeing this version now, Jian Luo cowered like a younger brother.


Jian Luo timidly apologized: “I’m sorry.”


The rain was heavy. Lu Shifeng lowered his head again, and rainwater slid down his cheeks. Jian Luo had an inexplicable intuition: “Are you crying?”


Lu Shifeng remained silent.


Jian Luo panicked, nervously stroking Lu Shifeng’s face, and said anxiously: “You really cried. I’m sorry. Can you not cry? Can I promise not to jump next time?”


He wanted to wipe Lu Shifeng’s face, but fatally, his hand passed through. At some point, his body had become transparent.


Lu Shifeng looked up at him, clearly noticing the change in Jian Luo’s body.


Jian Luo awkwardly withdrew his hand, racking his brains to find some reason to explain this phenomenon. In reality, he knew he was about to wake up but didn’t know how to say it.


Lu Shifeng was more straightforward: “You’re leaving.”


Jian Luo nodded, “Yeah.”


This is where red eyes are disadvantageous. Even if he cried, no one could tell. Looking into those red eyes, all that was seen was purity.


Lu Shifeng said, “Will you come back?”



Young man, this is a difficult question to answer.


Jian Luo wanted to say it’s a probability question whether I dream of you or not. After hesitating for a moment, he came up with an explanation, “Of course, I will come back. Look, I’m carrying your child. Why wouldn’t I come back?”


Lu Shifeng asked, “Really?”




Jian Luo thanked himself that his voice seemed to be getting smaller. Worried that Lu Shifeng wouldn’t hear, he used his last strength to say, “Do your best, don’t give up. You’re great, you’re the hope of the Dragon race’s future.”


Lu Shifeng wanted to hold his hand but couldn’t. It was intangible and passed right through.


Jian Luo’s voice became more scattered. In the end, as his entire figure seemed to be breaking apart, his voice became as faint as a mosquito. Dragon hearing is extraordinary, even at this moment, he heard Jian Luo’s words, “I will wait for you in the future.”



“Ding Ling Ling.”


The alarm clock rang.


Jian Luo sat up suddenly from the bed. As soon as he opened his eyes, he saw Lu Shifeng changing clothes not far away. The marshal always woke up a bit earlier than him, and at this moment, he was buttoning the cuff of his military uniform.


Lu Shifeng heard the sound and glanced back at him, “Awake?”


Jian Luo foolishly said, “Awake.”

Lu Shifeng said, “You have a prenatal checkup this afternoon. I’ll be back to accompany you. You can arrange your time in the morning. If you feel bored, you can play mahjong with those three elves of yours.”




Don’t make it sound like I have nothing to do.


After muttering in his heart, Jian Luo finally mentioned something serious, “Um, did you dream last night?”


Lu Shifeng: “What?”


Judging by his expression, Jian Luo guessed he probably didn’t dream. For some reason, he sighed with relief. Even though he knew dreams were not a reliable thing, he still felt a bit guilty.


Lu Shifeng looked at him meaningfully, “Did you do something bad in your dream?”


Jian Luo immediately refuted, “No, I didn’t!”


Thinking about the scenes and dialogues in the dream, Jian Luo automatically edited out his part and left some of Lu Shifeng’s pretext.


Sitting halfway on the bed, Jian Luo suddenly had a question. He had to ask today, or he would feel choked, “Let me ask you a question. Who do you think looks better, me or the princess?”



Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow without giving a clear answer.


Jian Luo felt even more frustrated.


Why was he entangled in such a question with this dog-like man? Was it typical for pregnant people to be more particular?


Thinking about this, Jian Luo sighed, “Forget it.”


Lu Shifeng put on his military coat, “If you have time to think about these boring questions, why not do something practical?”


Jian Luo, not pleased, asked, “Like what?”


“Such as checking the quality of the elf tribe’s dried fruits more thoroughly.” Lu Shifeng walked to the door, turned his head, and raised an eyebrow, “It’s indeed quite average.”



The person who was just arrogant on the bed suddenly petrified.


The reason was simple – he had never given Lu Shifeng any dried fruits to eat. He had only let the younger version taste them before. He did have a pack with him yesterday, thinking of letting Lu Shifeng try them, but he got too angry about the fiancée issue and didn’t give them.


Could it be—Lu Shifeng ate them elsewhere?


Jian Luo felt a bit flustered. Could it be, could it be that the dream was really shared, and he knew?!



In the office


Jian Luo held the contract and dried fruits, talking incessantly in front of the video, “I think these dried fruits can be developed into other flavors. I’ve been trying if I can make them spicy or salty lately. According to previous experience, I’ve tried them in buns, and the taste is good, but the shelf life of buns is not long, so I think it can be changed to bread.”


Nie Yan, flipping through documents, faintly responded, “Hmm.” He raised a question, “Is this your entire plan?”


Jian Luo was very uneasy, “Yes.”


Boss Nie remained silent for a while, the eerie quiet making Jian Luo a bit uneasy. Just when he was anxious, Nie Yan said, “Not bad.”


The surprise came too suddenly!


Jian Luo was excited, “What’s next, promotion?”


Nie Yan said, “I’ve asked Jieyue to set up the shopping website preliminarily. I’ll send you the link and account later. From today, you can find time to promote it. When the orders meet the shipping conditions, I’ll arrange for people to deliver them.”


Jian Luo had no problem, “Okay.”


After discussing the specifics with the boss, Jian Luo began planning his own live broadcast room. He had already obtained the goods from the elf tribe’s dried fruits. The initial estimate for the first live broadcast was to give away ten thousand packages. All these names had to be counted.


So, the problem arose.


Jin Secretary said, “Luo Luo, I think you might need an assistant.”


Jian Luo also realized that he might be overwhelmed with many things alone, and having an assistant would indeed be helpful.


Jin Secretary asked, “Have you thought about who to hire?”


Jian Luo temporarily didn’t have a specific candidate in mind and said, “The three elves from the elf tribe are originally locals. It should be easy for them to handle their dried fruits and after-sales. Let’s go with them for now.”


Jin Secretary nodded, “Alright, I’ll arrange it when the time comes.”


Jian Luo said, “Okay.”


After discussing everything, it was time for his live broadcast. Before the broadcast, he called Jiang Jiang to ensure technical and administrative support and to prevent any issues like buffering or disconnections in the live stream.


After that, Jian Luo explained the process to the three elves, and when everything was ready, he started the live broadcast.


“Ding dong.”


The big viewer count started running, and the broadcast began.


【Current online viewers: 1.2 million, Total live duration: 0 minutes, Total earnings: 0.】


As the live broadcast started, viewers gradually poured in. Trying to promote products in the live stream was Jian Luo’s first attempt since crossing over, and he was nervous. To achieve a good effect, he chose the most good-looking elf among the three to accompany him in the live broadcast.


As viewers entered, they were astonished:


“The host is showing his face?”


“Wow, so beautiful!”


“For an old fan like me, this isn’t him. It must be someone from the elf tribe.”


Indeed, Jian Luo explained, “This is not actually me. This is a friend I invited to the live stream today. We are here to recommend the specialty of the elf tribe, Elf Fruit.”


The elf named Wei Wei was a girl with the standard elf appearance—porcelain-like skin, big watery eyes, a sharp and high nose, and a pure temperament, all of which were enchanting.


Wei Wei greeted the audience, “Hello, everyone, I’m Wei Wei.”


Jian Luo livened up the atmosphere for her, “The elf tribe rarely appears in the outside world. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the barrage, and she will answer if she sees them.”


This was indeed true. The elf tribe was secluded, and if it weren’t for the need to make a living, they would prefer to remain isolated. In the interstellar world, they were practically invisible.


The audience was enthusiastic:


“How do you take care of your skin?”


“How to maintain a good figure?”


“How can I be as elegant and noble as you?”


It had to be said; these questions were very practical.


Wei Wei smiled shyly, and the clever elf knew how to leverage her advantages for profit, “Actually, our local genetics are quite average. It’s probably the food and drinks we consume daily that contribute to our well-being.”


The barrage of comments became curious.


Jian Luo signaled to Wei Wei, and she immediately said, “We usually drink flower dew and eat Elf Fruit. In our homeland, Elf Fruit helps maintain a good physique, keeps the mood pleasant, and promotes overall health.”


This statement covered all aspects. If it were just an advertisement, everyone would think it’s for promotional purposes, but having a real person suddenly appear and assert that it’s genuine changed the whole perception.


Especially with the surge in beauty value due to the beauty filter, it was enough to captivate the audience.


Jian Luo promptly joined in, “This thing is indeed good. I’ve been eating Elf Fruit dried recently. Is the effect the same?”


Wei Wei nodded, “It contains spiritual energy, and as long as the spiritual energy doesn’t disperse, it works.”


With this statement, the audience erupted:


“Share the link, share the link!”


“I need to know how to purchase within three seconds.”


“It makes you look so good after eating, and it’s completely natural and pollution-free. I want one!”


Jian Luo glanced at the real-time online count in the live stream, which had reached five million. He continued, “However, I want to express my sincere gratitude for everyone’s continuous support in my live broadcasts. We will be drawing one thousand packs of Elf Fruit in the first round of the live stream. After the orders are confirmed, we’ll ship them together. If there are any quality issues with our dried fruits upon receipt, we will offer a full refund. You can rest assured.”


This statement excited the audience, as broadcasters endorsing products were common, but not many were as generous as Jian Luo.


“I want it!”


“Count me in!”


Jian Luo checked the live stream’s current popularity and said, “Now, with six million online viewers, we will start the lottery when we reach ten million.”


Although the online viewer count was soaring, the increase was slow. However, since Jian Luo announced the free lottery, the numbers started to rise rapidly. At the same time, Jian Luo reached the top of the popularity rankings for the entire Dark Star.


Many observers were also stunned:


“How long did it take for him to reach the top?”


“And he broadcasts at random times.”


“He’s the top streamer.”


The lottery was divided into tiers. For every additional ten million online viewers, a new round of prizes would be drawn. Gradually, Jian Luo noticed that his audience not only consisted of Dark Star residents but also included people from other planets who had come to his live stream.


“Recommended by the Marshal, came to see the madam out of curiosity.”


“I’m not interested in dried fruits, but the other dishes in your display window look good.”


“Why not start an interstellar livestream? Many people around me want to watch, but they can’t find a platform.”


Jian Luo noticed that there were indeed many people like this. He had been thinking about this aspect for a while. While the flow on Dark Star was good, and he could sell some dishes regularly, it still didn’t compare to the overall interstellar traffic. Moreover, he wasn’t alone now; he had a whole planet to support, and expanding online would be crucial.


He would need to discuss this matter with Jiang Jiang.


Jian Luo asked the two elves helping to tally the orders, “How many units have we sold?”


Anya, the elf responsible for maintaining the website’s backend data, replied, “The current total is 37 million units, and we’ve already reached our initial target.”


Jian Luo nodded. Understanding when to stop was crucial. He then addressed the audience in the livestream, “Alright, that’s it for today’s broadcast. Thank you all for your support. We will continue to work hard in the future. For those who have placed orders, you will get the group purchase price of 15 stars per pack, with 50 people forming a group. If you want to buy individually, it’s 20 stars. You can choose accordingly!”


The audience exclaimed:


“Here in the Sky City’s Mingshuai District, 36 people in a group, just a dozen short, count me in!”


“Ignore him, I have 42 people, just need 8 more, come to my group.”


“Crying, I’m from the M60 star, fellow stars, check out the kids, just need 30 more people to form a group.”


Jian Luo ended the livestream.


After a tiring livestream session, he turned to the three elves beside him and said, “You all worked hard. Let’s have hot pot later!”


The elves were very happy, “Great!”


When they first met Jian Luo, the elves refused. They were used to drinking dew and eating fruits, so eating these mundane things was impossible for them. They even declared at the beginning, “Eating is impossible. We will never eat such food in our lifetime.”


After being influenced by Jian Luo a few times, the elves’ style changed once again:


“What are we eating today?”


“Barbecue and grilled small lobsters on skewers.”


“How about hot pot?”


No one could resist the trio of delicious foods, and even the elves couldn’t escape the allure of earth’s cuisine.


When Jian Luo and Secretary Jin went to select ingredients, Secretary Jin noticed cheese on a nearby table and said with a smile, “Who brought this out? These are things only little dragons like to eat.”


Upon hearing her say this, Jian Luo also turned his head to look.


On the table, there was a milky-white cheese that looked quite appetizing. He asked, “Do young dragons like to eat these snacks?”


“Absolutely love them!” Secretary Jin recounted her past, “I like cheese, cloud ice cream, toothpick candies, and all sorts of snacks.”


Watching her reminisce about her happy childhood, inexplicably, Jian Luo thought of someone falling into a mud puddle. If he remembered correctly, there was a group of little dragons living in the military’s aerial garden. Whenever he visited, those little dragons always enjoyed life carefreely.


The aerial garden had the most pleasant environment, with the young dragons growing up together as good companions under the protection of the Dragon King, enjoying the beautiful moments of childhood.


However, for Lu Shifeng, his childhood was an endless curtain of rain, with mud and the weight of responsibility and unseen pressure.


Jian Luo asked, “And the Marshal, what did he like to eat when he was young?”


Secretary Jin choked.


Jian Luo touched his nose, “Just curious.”


“Well… I don’t know.” Secretary Jin smiled apologetically, “Although we’re about the same age as the Marshal, he was training in the Dragon Valley when he was young, and when he came out, he became the Dragon King.”


“What about his birthday?”


“Because he was always in the Dragon Valley, we don’t know the specific date.”


I see.


Looking at the cheese sticks on the table, Jian Luo recalled the thin and weak child in the Dragon Valley and suddenly had an idea.


“Secretary Jin!”


Secretary Jin was startled, “What’s wrong?”


Jian Luo said, “You go have hot pot, I’ll go to the kitchen and prepare something. Let’s give the Marshal a surprise when he comes back in the afternoon!”


Seeing him so excited, Secretary Jin also smiled and asked, “Do you need any help?”


“No, no need.” Jian Luo was already selecting ingredients, “I can handle it myself.”


Seeing his enthusiasm, Secretary Jin didn’t disturb him and tactfully stepped aside. Before having hot pot, she needed to return to her work.


Waiting at the Elf Altar for Lu Shifeng to come back, Secretary Jin couldn’t help but speculate about what the surprise could be.


When Lu Shifeng came out, he habitually asked, “How was today?”


“Hmm?” Secretary Jin immediately stood up straight and professionally replied, “Today, Luo Luo did well, livestreamed for over an hour, didn’t encounter any problems, was in a good mood, and also…”


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow, looking at her, “And what?”


Secretary Jin hesitated for a moment. After all, reporting truthfully was her job. So, with determination, she said, “And Luo Luo said he wants to give you a surprise!”




Lu Shifeng paused in his steps. The usual sternness on his face softened a bit, and he asked, “What surprise?”


Secretary Jin hesitated, “Luo Luo didn’t say. He didn’t let me follow him, saying he wants to prepare it alone. He said he’ll show you when you come back in the afternoon.”

Lu Shifeng sat in the car, his tone carrying a hint of unsubstantial blame, “He always likes to do these quirky things.”


Secretary Jin has now grasped the meaning of His Lordship, “Isn’t it also for you?”


Indeed, there was a slight increase in warmth in Lu Shifeng’s eyes. Although his face remained indifferent, his words carried a gentleness, “Let him be.”


Secretary Jin agreed and added, “Um, Your Lordship, we have another schedule ahead.”


As the words fell, Lu Shifeng’s brows furrowed.


Secretary Jin felt a momentary panic and quickly corrected herself, “But it’s not very important!”


“Hmm,” Lu Shifeng was quite satisfied, “Let’s go back first.”



Although you’re trying to be discreet, I can already tell that you really want the surprise.


On the other side, Jian Luo had just set up the surprise. Because making these snacks left him smelling, he took a shower and prepared to go out. Thinking about the morning’s events, he felt a bit guilty. He didn’t know if Lu Shifeng was aware of that dream. This was a perfect opportunity to find out.


Just as he was thinking about it, he turned a corner and saw Lu Shifeng who had just returned.


Jian Luo smiled, “You came back early?”


Lu Shifeng: “Yes.”


As he spoke, His Lordship glanced at Jian Luo, reservedly waiting for the surprise. Jian Luo noticed that Lu Shifeng had taken a shower and changed into a different outfit. His face even had a shy blush, perhaps due to the steam from the shower. The gaze he received seemed to carry a hint of shy evasion.


The more Lu Shifeng thought about it, the more he became intrigued. According to books, when a pregnant spouse reaches a certain month, they become more eager for their husband’s love. He had always thought Jian Luo didn’t need that, but could today be a revelation?


Jian Luo said, “Come with me to the room, I have a surprise for you.”


Lu Shifeng’s Adam’s apple rolled up and down, his voice somewhat hoarse, “I’ll take a shower first.”


“Shower?” Jian Luo shook his head, “Why bother, you can wash up after the surprise. I can’t wait; let me tell you, you’ll be happy!”


Lu Shifeng didn’t expect Jian Luo to be so impatient.


Inside the room, Jian Luo deliberately turned off the lights, leaving only a few ambiguous candlelights. He lowered his voice, “It’s my first attempt, so if I don’t perform well, don’t blame me, okay?”


Lu Shifeng’s Adam’s apple rolled again, “I won’t.”


“That’s good!”


Lu Shifeng reached out to hug Jian Luo, but unexpectedly, Jian Luo moved away and walked to the steps not far away. In an instant, the lights came on, and small fireworks bloomed. Jian Luo sang loudly while clapping, “Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you…”

Chapter 104 – The Child You're Carrying Isn't Mine

Chapter 104 – The Child You’re Carrying Isn’t Mine


Once the passion for drama arises, no one can stop it.


Lu Shifeng quietly watched him, finally speaking after Jian Luo confessed all his wrongdoings, “Finished?”


Jian Luo wiped away nonexistent tears, “Yes.”


“Is what you said something that actually happened?” Lu Shifeng’s red eyes gazed quietly at him.


Hey, you dare to question me, little guy.


Unable to bear such injustice, Jian Luo snorted, “Why would I lie to you?”


Lu Shifeng was originally sitting cross-legged on a rock, but now he leaned closer to Jian Luo. The man’s aura carried a hint of oppression, and the closer he got, the more stuttered Jian Luo became, “What are you doing? I’m telling you, just because you’re still young, I won’t yield!”


Lu Shifeng approached a bit more, his gaze falling on Jian Luo’s belly, and said in a deep voice, “You haven’t given birth yet.”




Calculations, calculations, missed this aspect!


Jian Luo felt a bit awkward, but as long as he had no shame, the sense of embarrassment couldn’t catch up to him, “This is the second child. You abandoned us after the first!”



Lu Shifeng fell silent.


Jian Luo finally found a fabricated reason, and he could continue, “When we had the first child, we were fine. But later, after giving birth, I aged, lost my charm, and there was no excitement anymore. And the princess, she’s so beautiful that she immediately caught your attention…”


Lu Shifeng: “Which princess?”


Jian Luo stubbornly said, “The one from the vampire clan. Okay, do you have many princesses?”


Lu Shifeng sat back, coming to his senses, “If it’s her, you don’t need to worry.”


“Why?” Jian Luo argued, “You sweet-talked me before just like this. I didn’t expect this skill wasn’t something you developed as you grew up. Now, at such a young age, you’ve learned this. You don’t need to say more; I won’t believe it.”


While speaking, Jian Luo acted as if he were wronged. Although he pretended to shed tears on the surface, inwardly he was quite pleased. In reality, he was submissive, but in his dreams, he fought back fiercely. Faced with a high-maintenance flower, he dared not cause trouble, but dealing with a little Lu was a piece of cake.


Haha, he finally vented.


Lu Shifeng, you have it coming!


Lu Shifeng remained silent, glancing at him, “If it’s her, I won’t betray you with her.”


Jian Luo didn’t believe it, “Where’s the reason?”


“She’s uglier than you.” Lu Shifeng, with no survival instinct, said calmly, “You can rest assured.”



The air was filled with silence.


Jian Luo wasn’t comforted; he was so angry that his beard bristled, “What did you say?”


Lu Shifeng remained silent.


Jian Luo absolutely couldn’t bear this injustice. In reality, he could let it go, but in his dreams, why should he be overpowered?


Thinking of this, Jian Luo began to climb walls and tear down tiles. He clung to Lu Shifeng, half of his body pressing against him, unrelenting, “What did you say? Do you think I’m ugly? Fine, you, turns out you think that. You’re too much, you, not a single trustworthy man, alright! Consider me blind and mistaken, can’t I leave…”


Rainy day, the stones were a bit slippery. Jian Luo’s movements were a little exaggerated, and with a slight misstep, his foot slipped, and his entire body tumbled down. “Oops!”


Everything seemed to change in an instant.


At the critical moment, Lu Shifeng covered the ground beneath him. Swiftly, he positioned himself, and Jian Luo fell directly onto him.


Jian Luo winced in pain, “Uh…”


Lu Shifeng sat up, glancing at him, “Did you get hurt?”


“No,” Jian Luo said, “I just yelled randomly to create some atmosphere.”



Lu Shifeng didn’t bother looking at him, getting up to leave.


Seeing Lu Shifeng about to leave, Jian Luo couldn’t let that happen. He had finally encountered Lu Shifeng in a dream, and if he missed this opportunity, his source of happiness would be gone, right?


Realizing this, Jian Luo quickly caught up, “Where are you going?”


Lu Shifeng paused, turning to look at him, “Practicing flight.”


Oh, Jian Luo remembered. Those people mocking the marshal for not being able to fly. Unbelievably, it turned out that when the child was young, he wasn’t the pride of the heavens but was handed this script.


Seeing the heavy rain, Jian Luo asked, “Can’t you practice when the rain stops? It’s not good to practice in such heavy rain, right? Wait a bit more.”


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow, looking at him. Despite his young age, there was already a strong aura of a man. He said, “Rain won’t wait for someone to find shelter, and others won’t wait for you to grow up.”



Jian Luo was stunned.


For a moment, he suddenly understood why Lu Shifeng developed such a paranoid and strict personality after growing up. Perhaps they couldn’t blame Lu Shifeng for not understanding tenderness. If he hadn’t been shown kindness and forgiveness in his childhood, how could he treat others gently?


People said he was cold-hearted, but no one had ever pitied him.


Realizing this, Jian Luo sighed inwardly, saying, “Where are you going to practice? I’ll accompany you.”


Lu Shifeng had been watching Jian Luo since he got up, not missing any expression. He lightly opened his lips, “Are you pitying me?”



The kid is quite sensitive.


Jian Luo pinched his waist, “Are you out of your mind? There’s flat ground everywhere. Where do I go to avoid the rain? I’m human, I can’t fly, and I’m carrying your child. Where do you want me to go? What if I encounter bad, bad dragons!”


His dominance was too strong. Even though the young Lu Shifeng was calm, he wasn’t a match for a pregnant husband making a scene.


Lu Shifeng said, “You’re not carrying my child.”




Jian Luo widened his eyes, unbelieving, “Are you really abandoning your wife and child?”


Lu Shifeng said, “The child you’re carrying belongs to him, not the present me.”




How old are you?


Young man, your thoughts are a bit dangerous. Has no one told you that?


Jian Luo fell silent; he shouldn’t have underestimated the teenage version of Lu Shifeng. Maybe dealing with the younger version would be more challenging than the grown-up one. Well, he better be more honest.


Arriving at the usual training ground for Lu Shifeng’s flight practice, the juvenile version of the black dragon appeared in front of Jian Luo. Unlike the towering and majestic adult version, this little dragon was about the size of a lion in a zoo. Its wings were not as broad as before, looking somewhat fragile.


Jian Luo stood under a small rock to avoid the rain, shouting from above, “Go for it!”


The little black dragon hesitated while standing on a large rock.




A lightning bolt flashed, and it rushed down. The distance between the rock and the ground was over 10 meters high. In the wind and rain, it jumped down resolutely, with a touch of recklessness.


Jian Luo watched its wings, involuntarily holding his breath.


One meter.


Two meters.


Three meters…




The little black dragon fell, splashing water and creating a pit on the ground. It looked quite disheveled. Jian Luo subconsciously wanted to step forward to help.




The dragon roared in his direction, its blood-red eyes filled with threat and danger. Obviously, it didn’t want anyone to approach.


Jian Luo helplessly stopped, “Alright, alright, I won’t bother you, okay.”


Then came Lu Shifeng’s acrobatic wrestling moves. From initially worrying, Jian Luo turned into sitting cross-legged on the grass under the rock, supporting his chin, looking worried, “What if your child turns out to be just like you, stubborn to death?”


In the midst of the storm, Lu Shifeng paid him no attention.


Finally, when the little black dragon fell again, Jian Luo shouted, “Lu Shifeng, come here!”


Lu Shifeng ignored him.


Jian Luo unleashed his ultimate move, “My stomach hurts!”



The little black dragon hesitated for a moment, transforming back into human form. The cute dragon-horned Lu Shifeng walked slowly to Jian Luo. “Where does it hurt?”


Jian Luo took out two bags of dried fruits he had packed from his pocket, “Are you hungry?”


Lu Shifeng repeated, “Where does it hurt.”


“In the stomach.” Jian Luo opened one bag for himself and handed the other to Lu Shifeng, “Eat something. You keep falling like this. No, I mean, a balance between work and rest is necessary for progress.”


Lu Shifeng remained silent for a while, finally taking the dried fruits. His once slender and fair hands were now smeared with mud from the wrestling.

Jian Luo withdrew his hand after a glance and took out a few pieces of dried fruit with his clean hand. He handed them to Lu Shifeng’s mouth, saying, “Come on, open up.”


Lu Shifeng said, “I can do it myself…”


The clever Jian Luo seized the opportunity and directly tossed them into his mouth while he spoke.


Lu Shifeng silently looked at Jian Luo’s triumphant face, ultimately choosing not to argue with him. He silently chewed on the dried fruit. Perhaps he was genuinely hungry, so he didn’t complain and quietly ate whatever Jian Luo fed him.


Finally, Jian Luo asked, “Is it good?”


Lu Shifeng asked, “Did you make it?”


“No, I got it from the elf tribe.”






The rain outside gradually subsided. Lu Shifeng was about to continue practicing flying. Having been closer this time, Jian Luo saw many wounds on him—new and old injuries intertwined, making his skin look unbearable.


Standing under the giant rock, Jian Luo suddenly understood how to fly.


Behind Lu Shifeng, there was a little tail. Huffing and puffing, Jian Luo also climbed up the rock. The journey exhausted him, and he was panting heavily.


Lu Shifeng turned his face and looked at him, “Why did you come up?”


Taking a moment to catch his breath, Jian Luo pinched his waist, “I came to help you. Just practicing like this won’t work. You might need some external assistance.”


Lu Shifeng asked, “What?”


Approaching, Jian Luo glanced at the bottom of the rock, a height equivalent to five or six floors of a building. At first glance, it was really anxiety-inducing. He really couldn’t imagine how Lu Shifeng managed to jump down from such a height and how much it must have hurt.


Taking a deep breath, he felt like he was about to wake up.


Turning around, Jian Luo said to Lu Shifeng, “Don’t care too much about how others see you or what they say. I believe you can fly. The future of the dragon race won’t be lost in your hands. You’ll be the strongest Dragon King.”


Lu Shifeng was covered in injuries, his voice somewhat hoarse, and a hint of a sarcastic smile on his lips, “Even if I can’t spread my wings, I can’t even capture the weakest prey.”


Jian Luo stood by the edge of the rock, raindrops falling on him. He looked at the several meters of height below, slowly spoke, and his voice carried a seriousness that had never been there before, “Sometimes, flying and becoming stronger don’t necessarily have to be for attacking or harming others.”


Lu Shifeng asked, “What?”


The young man standing at the edge of the rock changed his face into a bright smile. Leaning backward, his eyes firmly met Lu Shifeng’s. His voice contained endless trust and certainty, “It can also be for protection, you know.”


Because you are the Dragon Lord, you have to protect your clan. Your heart should not be filled with thoughts of slaughter. When you learn to protect, that’s when you truly become a Dragon Lord.

Chapter 109 – Who Says Omegas Can’t be as Explosive as Alphas

Chapter 109

After the start of the new school year, Lu Jingning’s days remained as calm as ever.


Classes were attended when necessary, and if a nap was in order during lectures, he would sleep as usual.


Perhaps due to the effective last-minute cramming for makeup classes at the end of the previous semester, he became even more carefree.


What was there to fear? With his boyfriend and soon-to-be fiancé Wen Xingchen at his beck and call, makeup classes were remarkably ther4p3utic!


Exams and such were just minor inconveniences!


As a self-proclaimed underachiever, Lu Jingning himself felt the inflation of his ego.


However, after about a month into the new semester, a confidential report arrived at the principal’s office where Bing Cang worked.


He quickly read through it, and a hint of weariness appeared on his face.


Despite secretly engaging in the ongoing battle against the insect race, Bing Cang didn’t expect this day to come so soon.


In a remote star system unknown to the public, a small-scale war broke out a few days ago.


In this battle, a highly concentrated energy source transported by the Empire was intercepted midway, resulting in heavy casualties for the special operations team responsible for the transport.


While the battle didn’t seem to cause much commotion, anyone with a bit of understanding knew the significance of the energy source falling into the hands of the insect race.


The time they had for human preparation would likely be shortened by at least ten years.


Ten years, for them, was already dire.


As a result, the urgency of conscription became evident, and the Imperial Military Department officially issued orders, instructing major military academies to recruit new soldiers and formally begin the formation of a joint alliance army.


In a sense, this move officially marked the first step in the war against the insect race.


Considering that most fourth-year students had already been recruited by various legions, this conscription primarily targeted students in their third year or below.


When the school announced this information on the campus website, it was like a massive stone dropped into a calm lake, creating instant waves.


These students on campus naturally had no idea about the gravity of the situation.


For them, the ultimate goal of entering a military academy was undoubtedly to secure a place in the military, and currently, this was an excellent opportunity.


Those with a bit of ambition showed considerable enthusiasm.


Lu Jingning should have been very interested in such matters, but as he looked at the crowded registration area, he couldn’t help but frown in confusion, “Something seems strange.”


Wen Xingchen, not having strong opinions on the matter, agreed to accompany him since Lu Jingning wanted to come. Now, hearing his sudden remark, he asked, “What’s wrong?”


Lu Jingning pointed to the propaganda posters outside, “The Empire hasn’t openly recruited on such a large scale for a long time, and this new legion is unexpectedly formed in collaboration with the Federation. Don’t you find it a bit unusual?”


Wen Xingchen’s gaze swept over the poster, and after a moment of silence, he said, “The need to establish a joint force by both countries to resist an external enemy can only mean…”


A flash of insight appeared in Lu Jingning’s eyes, “The insect race.”


Although the Empire and the Federation had maintained a facade of friendly diplomatic relations, it was nothing more than surface peace.


Those high-ranking officials had never truly trusted each other, engaging in numerous power struggles behind the scenes. Now, the fact that they decided to cooperate could only mean one thing – an external threat powerful enough to make them wary.


Given their previous experiences, the answer was almost self-evident.


Lu Jingning stood still for a moment, not heading towards the registration area. Instead, he lightly patted Wen Xingchen’s shoulder, “Let’s go, Brother Wen.”


Wen Xingchen, with a half-smile, looked at him, “Alright.”



When Bing Cang received the list of applicants in recent days, he unsurprisingly found the names of Yan Hebin, but not Lu Jingning and Wen Xingchen.


He raised an eyebrow, unable to suppress a smile, “These two rascals, are they waiting for me?”


But since he had no intention of hiding the matter, he directly sent a message, summoning the three of them to the principal’s office.


When Lu Jingning arrived, he saw Bing Cang holding a list, standing with his back to the door near the French windows.


He knocked on the door and called out, “Principal, we’re here!”


Bing Cang turned around, smiled, gestured for them to sit, and personally poured a cup of tea for each of the three.


Such treatment inevitably made them feel flattered.


Lu Jingning, however, wasn’t fooled at all. He smiled with narrowed eyes and asked, “If you have something to say, just say it, Principal. Why bother with formalities?”


Bing Cang didn’t take offense at his words; he simply handed the list to them, smiling amiably, “This is the application list for the Elite Team. Take a look.”


Lu Jingning quickly scanned through it, finding many familiar names, “Elite Team?”


He hadn’t expected that, besides the large-scale recruitment outside, there was also this move.


Although the students who applied would undergo various evaluations and screenings, they couldn’t compare to the directly selected Elite Team.


Bing Cang nodded, “Whether it’s the Empire or the Federation’s major military academies, they will submit a part of the list during this time. As for whether they pass or not, that’s a decision from above.”


After a slight pause, he continued, “Although it’s not suitable to reveal too much, I think you should have some understanding of the nature of this joint force. It’s not just to keep you vigilant but also to ensure the safety of your fellow students. Do you understand?”


Wen Xingchen responded, “Please rest assured, Principal. We will be cautious.”


Bing Cang nodded and glanced towards Yan Hebin.


From the beginning until now, he had been staring at the list, seemingly lost in thought. His expression changed slightly, and Bing Cang called his name.


Yan Hebin seemed to snap out of his thoughts, “Yes, Principal?”


After a moment of silence, Bing Cang said, “I know you’ve been waiting for a chance for a close encounter with the insect race for a long time. But you must remember, in the face of personal feelings, you are first and foremost a soldier. If there are any disagreements during the mission, everything must obey Lu Jingning’s arrangements.”


Lu Jingning, caught off guard, blinked, “So, I have the highest authority?”


The more he thought about it, the more beautiful it seemed. Unable to resist his curiosity, he asked, “Principal, have you finally discovered my potential as a commander?”


Bing Cang couldn’t help but feel speechless at his self-love and didn’t dismantle his fantasy, “You can think that way if you want.”


During the conversation, he cast a discreet glance at the person beside him, who was smiling without saying a word.


He had heard some rumors about their relationship. The reason for entrusting the final authority to Lu Jingning’s hands, in a way, was because he knew that with Wen Xingchen by his side, they could handle it with great discretion.



Perhaps due to the higher priority of recruiting for the Elite Team, the military department quickly provided feedback. The selected military academy students were instructed to report to the new legion internally.


A total of ten students were selected from the Imperial Navy Academy, including the three from the special task force. Among the familiar faces, Lu Jingning recognized Cen Junfeng and Qin Yuankai, who had previously accompanied him on a mission to the Watcher’s Isles.


Cen Junfeng seemed excited and greeted them from a distance, “Hey, Brother Lu! We are true comrades from now on!”


Lu Jingning scanned his enthusiastic face with no expression.


Indeed, ignorance could breed fear. Looking at his excited appearance, someone unaware might think they were embarking on an interstellar vacation with public funds.


The gathering point for the new legion was a nameless asteroid at the border between the Empire and the Federation, with the code SY9989.


To establish this new legion, the military department had long begun preparations.


When Lu Jingning and the others arrived, they could see dark-colored buildings situated in a desert-like area. It looked solemn and indifferent, exuding the unique oppression of a military legion.

Even from a distance, it was enough to make their spines subconsciously straighten, feeling the imminent reality of becoming true soldiers.


As the Elite Team, the first batch of new recruits to arrive, disembarked from the spacecraft, they were met with a desolate and lifeless landscape, almost devoid of any human presence.


The early arrivals were gathering in an open space outside the military base. Upon seeing the new landing spacecraft, they instinctively turned to look in their direction.


The glances held curiosity, but more prominently, wariness and inquiry.


This was a normal state of mind; after all, everyone was starting from scratch. Despite being called comrades, there was an inherent sense of competition among them.


Although they were all elites, no one knew who would be the first to stand out.


The new recruits assembled today included individuals from both the Empire and the Federation. Due to the different colors of their military uniforms, it was easy to distinguish between the two factions.


Moreover, humans, being creatures that naturally form groups, had unwittingly chosen their respective camps.


The white faction of the Empire and the white faction of the Federation each formed a circle. Although they were part of the same alliance army, two factions had inevitably emerged.


Lu Jingning wasn’t particularly interested in the strangers from the Federation.


What surprised him was that, although he knew top military academies like Silver Star Interstellar University would surely recommend candidates, he didn’t expect to see Tang Jiaze among them.


Tang Jiaze noticed Lu Jingning, curled his lips, and made an ambiguous sound.


In fact, as a senior in his fourth year, he had already been accepted by the Fifth Legion. However, as one of the few informed individuals at Silver Star University, he considered it carefully and ultimately chose to voluntarily join the new legion.


Although being part of the Fifth Legion offered job security, the strict rules and regulations made it difficult for someone of his background to advance.


The new legion was different.


If he wanted to climb to the top sooner, sometimes, he had to bear corresponding risks.


Only by truly standing on the battlefield could he rise higher.


A flicker of surprise crossed Lu Jingning’s eyes. After all, Tang Jiaze was a familiar face, and encountering him in this remote place was quite unexpected.


He was about to go over and greet him, but then he heard a disdainful laugh from nearby, “Which military academy sent this student? Isn’t this the Elite Team? Why is there an Omega among them?”


Lu Jingning’s steps paused slightly, and a hint of an enigmatic smile appeared in his narrowed eyes.


Well, this feeling of familiarity, it had been a long time coming.

Chapter 103 – Orphans with a Widowed Mother

Chapter 103 – Orphans with a Widowed Mother


The scene fell into an awkward silence.


Jian Luo simply couldn’t meet Lu Shifeng’s gaze; his survival instinct prompted him to hastily say, “You’ve misunderstood, brother!”


The elven minister was skeptical, “Misunderstood?”


“Yeah,” Jian Luo chuckled awkwardly, “There’s no pixiu in my belly. How could it be a pixiu? Don’t judge me just because of the clothes I wear. If I were wearing a military uniform, would you think I’m pregnant with a dragon?”


The elf was inexplicably convinced by this explanation, asking, “Then what are you pregnant with?”


Lu Shifeng, who had been silent, spoke up, “Mine.”


The elf was stunned.


Lu Shifeng looked at him with a gloomy expression, “Is the financial acumen of the elven race so shallow, relying solely on appearances?”


The pressure from the dragon race was still formidable, causing the elf to break into a sweat.


The elven minister wiped his forehead, awkwardly saying, “I acted recklessly. I misunderstood. I apologize.”


Jian Luo smiled, “It’s okay.”


The contract was temporarily settled, though the process had its share of tension. Fortunately, there were no major issues.


Exiting the place, Jian Luo couldn’t help but glance at Lu Shifeng repeatedly.


Finally, after countless glances, Lu Shifeng stopped and asked, “Do you have something to say?”


Jian Luo scratched his head, “Um, yes.”


Lu Shifeng prompted, “Speak.”


“I didn’t know this outfit was so valuable. I didn’t wear it on purpose,” Jian Luo spoke sincerely, “Are you angry?”


Because he felt that since a while ago, Lu Shifeng seemed to be unusually intense.


Lu Shifeng gave Jian Luo a thorough look, scrutinizing him to the point of making Jian Luo’s heart a bit uneasy.


After a while, Lu Shifeng said, “Your casual clothes are indeed too few.”




Jian Luo explained, “Actually, I have quite a few clothes. It’s just that the ones needed for certain occasions might be a bit fewer. But two outfits are enough.”


Lu Shifeng didn’t want anyone to label him anymore when he went out, “In the afternoon, I’ll have someone measure your clothes again. You won’t have to wear this one in the future.”


Jian Luo looked at the golden robe on him, sniffed, and muttered, “Alright, but honestly, this color is quite nice, and the fabric is good. It’s a bit of a pity.”


“Is it?”


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow, affirming, “The fabric is indeed good.”


Jian Luo said, “Right.”


“Uh-huh, suitable for use as a cleaning cloth.”




Nie Yan felt like hitting someone.


Initially, Jian Luo came to discuss business, but unexpectedly, the process went too smoothly, saving him a lot of time. However, he still had many things to attend to, such as inspecting dried fruits at the place of origin and preparing for the subsequent promotion. The specific process and plans were all new to him, and he needed to prepare thoroughly.

In the afternoon, before heading to inspect the site, Jian Luo was greeted by the person responsible for tailoring his clothes.


The tailor said, “Let me measure your waist and shoulder width first. Please stand still here, okay?”


Jian Luo nodded, “Sure.”


He usually cooperated well with other people’s work, and the tailor, seeing his cooperation, added, “You really look cute, no wonder people like you.”


Jian Luo blushed, “Is that so? Well, it’s nothing.”


The tailor smiled, “It’s the first time I’ve seen a noble person personally deliver gifts to someone.”






Jian Luo was delighted, but he tried to maintain composure on his face. In passing, he asked, “Has your marshal… ever had a relationship before?”



In fact, he had discussed this matter with Lu Shifeng before, but he still wanted to hear it from someone else.


The tailor thought for a moment, “It seems so.”




Jian Luo’s smile froze on his face, and he pretended not to care, “Oh? Who?”


After taking his measurements, the tailor began selecting styles and said, “Princess, perhaps. Hasn’t the princess always been engaged to the marshal?”


Oh, right.


He almost forgot if she didn’t mention it.


Before, it seemed that the princess did have a good relationship with Lu Shifeng. The princess also seemed quite assertive towards him. Should he ask Lu Shifeng about it?


Thinking about it, Jian Luo hesitated a bit, but then again, once the child was born, what did it matter?


Even if Lu Shifeng married the princess, it had nothing to do with him, right?


With this in mind, Jian Luo felt reassured and said, “I see, that’s good. They are quite a match, the talented man and the beautiful woman.”


The tailor felt like he might have said the wrong thing and awkwardly smiled.


Due to this little episode, when Lu Shifeng returned in the evening, he experienced an unprecedented cold reception. If it were any other day, Jian Luo would have greeted him with enthusiasm or at least come over to show concern, asking about his work, whether he had eaten, and if he wanted to take a bath.


But today, Jian Luo just huddled on the sofa. When he saw Lu Shifeng enter, he lifted his head briefly and then ignored him.


Lu Shifeng calmly sat on the sofa, “What’s wrong? Didn’t you like the clothes from this afternoon’s fitting?”


Jian Luo replied, “I liked them.”


“The brat troubled you again?”




“Not feeling well?”


“Feeling fine.”




There was a moment of silence in the air.


Straight men could never understand why humans acted this way today. Lu Shifeng used the most primitive and effective method: “I’ve opened a supplementary card for you. Buy whatever you like in the future.”


In the past, Jian Luo would have joyfully hugged him and expressed gratitude at this point. But today, Jian Luo just closed the book and said, “Thanks, I’m a bit tired. I’ll go to sleep first.”




Lu Shifeng felt the pressure.


This was the earliest Jian Luo had gone to bed since they had this elven bed. His sleep quality had improved quite a bit, and he had developed a habit of placing his hand on the quicksand before going to bed, a kind of small magical ritual.


Lu Shifeng walked over from the sofa, intending to say something, but as soon as he approached, Jian Luo buried his head and fell asleep.



It was a somewhat open valley. Jian Luo stood on the grass, looking somewhat confused at the dragon group on the opposite side. Not far away, in the sky, there was a very tall tree, the mother tree of the dragon race, a tree he recognized.


The dragon group surrounded a small black dragon, chattering away:


“Why hasn’t this child learned to fly yet?”


“Isn’t it supposed to be an exact clone of the dragon king’s genes?”


“Could it be that our dragon race is destined to perish in this generation?”


“He has red eyes; this is an ominous sign.”


The discussions were endless and somewhat noisy.


Jian Luo took a step forward and saw the black dragon sitting on a rock in the middle. It wasn’t a complete dragon form but a half-dragon, with two horns on its head, a bit slender in stature. The black scales appeared somber, and its cold, stern side profile remained tense. The pair of red eyes were half-closed, not saying a word.


Jian Luo asked, “Lu Shifeng?”


No one could hear his voice, and the surrounding dragon race couldn’t see him. They continued discussing, and their words became increasingly hurtful.


The way those dragon race individuals looked at the small black dragon was not like they were looking at kin but rather with the indifferent gaze of judging the worthiness of an item.


Finally, an older-looking dragon approached and said, “The survival of the dragon race is at stake. I hope Your Highness can bear the great responsibility and not let the sacrifice of the old Dragon King be in vain.”


The small black dragon remained unresponsive.


The old dragon shook his head and walked away.


The sky gradually darkened, and the small black dragon sitting on the rock remained motionless. Jian Luo felt as if it could sit there until the end of time.


Slowly, it began to rain.


Jian Luo couldn’t stand it. He walked over and poked the black dragon, “Hey.”


In fact, he was just trying to play and didn’t expect Lu Shifeng to react. After all, if other dragons couldn’t see him, could Lu Shifeng? It was a dream anyway, so he shouldn’t care too much.


As expected, the small black dragon remained unmoved, as if treating him as nothing.


Seeing that there was no response, Jian Luo began to amuse himself. He crossed his legs and sat on a nearby rock next to Lu Shifeng:


“What’s your name, are you Lu Shifeng?”


“I know it’s you; I haven’t seen other dragons with red eyes.”


“You were so cute when you were little.”


“Will our child be as cute as you were?”


Originally, the black dragon ignored him. However, as Jian Luo kept talking incessantly, the black dragon lifted his head and locked eyes with Jian Luo. The young voice was somewhat hoarse, “Child?”


Jian Luo was stunned, “You can see me?”


Damn it, why did that jerk ignore me just now?


Lu Shifeng stubbornly said, “What child?”


Jian Luo hesitated, “Uh…”


Lu Shifeng is still young now. Is it really okay for him to know those things that are not suitable for children? But this is a dream. Since it’s a dream, how could he go astray?


Jian Luo’s gaze swept over Lu Shifeng. He cleverly said, “Before I answer your question, you have to answer mine first.”


Lu Shifeng whispered, “What.”


“Why are you sitting here alone? They’ve all left. Aren’t you leaving too? It’s raining, aren’t you cold?”


“I can’t leave.”




“Because I can’t fly.” Lu Shifeng lowered his gaze, exuding a hint of sharpness: “The weak have no right to negotiate.”




It truly was you.


After Lu Shifeng finished speaking, he looked at him again, “You haven’t answered my question.”


Jian Luo choked. He didn’t expect this kid to be so stubborn. After hesitating for a moment, he looked at the young version of Lu Shifeng. Those eyes still revealed a trace of innocence, completely different from the icy face when he grew up. Considering the previous bullying, a mischievous idea came to his mind.




Jian Luo sniffed, and a touch of sadness appeared on his delicate face, “I’m just a passerby in your life, not worthy of having a name.”


“You really have a cruel heart.”


Jian Luo wiped away imaginary tears, “When we were in love, you were so good to me in every possible way, deceiving me into being with you. I got pregnant with your child, but after you got tired of me, you abandoned me and married your princess fiancée. My children are too pitiful, they were orphaned by their father and left with a widowed mother, all alone and helpless!”

Chapter 102 – Brothers, This is a Misunderstanding

Chapter 102 – Brothers, This is a Misunderstanding


There was a momentary freeze in the atmosphere.


Jian Luo looked at Lu Shifeng, whose face darkened for a moment, and stammered, “D-Do you really not need it?”


Lu Shifeng was so angry that he almost choked. He raised an eyebrow, “Do you think I lack a brother?”




He didn’t think so.


Jian Luo, who had never been too bright, started to think. First of all, Brother Long inviting him to be included in the family registry probably meant giving him a Dragon Clan identity.


The meaning was simple; perhaps considering that children would be born, even though he probably wouldn’t raise the children himself, he would still have visitation rights. If the child found out he was just an ordinary human, it might not be appropriate.


Jian Luo widened his eyes, “Could it be, Dragon bro, you mean…”


Lu Shifeng’s expression changed from gloomy to clear. Understanding that Jian Luo had successfully grasped the situation, an unusual trace of awkwardness appeared on his handsome face. General Lu, who was accustomed to grand scenes, found confessing feelings quite unfamiliar, especially if it was the first time.


Jian Luo sat up, cleared his throat, and said, “I agree to this matter.”


Lu Shifeng’s joy was evident.


“Is it inappropriate to have an affiliated relationship with you? Are you going to give me an independent household registration?” Jian Luo asked again, “If I move my household registration, will it affect my mother and younger brother? Can I still live in Paradise if I become a member of the Dragon Clan? After becoming a Dragon Clan member, can I visit the child?”




For some reason, Lu Shifeng felt a bit emotional.


As a man who was used to confessions and love letters, General Lu’s first confession as a Dragon was a complete failure. The other party didn’t realize his intentions; perhaps, there were no intentions.


Lu Shifeng said, “Jian Luo.”


Jian Luo waited for a while, didn’t get a reply, and asked, “Dragon bro?”


Lu Shifeng raised his eyelids to look at him and said, “Have you never thought that I might marry you and include you in the family registry?”



There was a moment of silence in the air.


Jian Luo sat on the sofa, feeling like his blood was freezing. He smiled, “Don’t joke.”


The tall figure of Lu Shifeng brought a full sense of oppression. He said, “You know I never joke.”




Jian Luo’s mind turned, and he instantly thought of his previous worries. So, tentatively, he said, “I have thought about it.”


Lu Shifeng was somewhat expectant, “And then?”


“I’ve given my answer,” Jian Luo sighed, “I don’t need you like this.”


Yes, he did like Lu Shifeng, but he didn’t need General Lu to be responsible for him. Adult love is probably about being happy together. He was an ordinary human, but he also wanted love. He didn’t want General Lu to be with him just because he wanted to be with him, rather than genuinely wanting to be with him.



Lu Shifeng’s day had its ups and downs.


First, he was rejected, then he thought there was hope, and then he was rejected again.


He understood that not only did Jian Luo have no interest in him, but he also had no interest in the Dragon Clan. It seemed that he had oversimplified everything; Secretary Jin’s useless suggestion didn’t help.


Perhaps, Jian Luo didn’t dislike the Dragon Clan’s household registration. Maybe he liked something else?


The Dragon Clan was indeed the first major aristocracy of the Dark Star, but there were others, such as the stingy Pixiu, the bookish Phoenix, and the forever young Emperor.


Thinking of this, Lu Shifeng asked a crucial question, “What do you think of Nie Yan?”


Jian Luo was stunned, “He’s quite good. The boss is very smart.”


Lu Shifeng felt a pang in his heart, “And what about Zhan Wentai?”


“Teacher is very clever, quite good.”


“And the emperor?”


“His Majesty is very cute, I really like him.”




The room fell silent.


The General, who had never thought his head could shine so brightly, bit his teeth and suppressed the impulse, “What about me?”


Jian Luo straightforwardly said, “I like you too.”



With these words, the imposing aura that surrounded General Lu, who was on the brink of fury, disappeared in an instant. The blood-red eyes deepened in color, and the excitement in his heart surged. Lu Shifeng’s voice became hoarse, “Really?”


The two were very close; Jian Luo and he locked eyes. For a moment, it seemed as if he could see strong emotions in those eyes. Emotions that felt dangerous, making one subconsciously want to escape, but—strangely, not disliking it.


Jian Luo’s heartbeat accelerated inexplicably. His earlobes turned red, and his voice was as soft as a mosquito’s hum, “Mm.”


Lu Shifeng paused, his voice husky, “Is it the most liked between them?”


This smile was truly enchanting. General Lu’s features and appearance were perfect, different from the delicate beauty of Jian Luo. He had a more rigid set of features—star-like eyes and sharp eyebrows. When not smiling, he gave off a sense of distance, making people hesitant to meet his gaze. When he smiled, it was like a sword being sheathed, making it impossible to look away.


Jian Luo was dumbfounded.


A fan of beauty couldn’t resist such a huge temptation. His brain ceased to function properly, and he nodded, “Yes.”


Lu Shifeng’s smile deepened, his voice full of tenderness, as if he were still saying, “Good boy.”


Well, no need to rush.


This person was his, and the child in his belly was also his. So, sooner or later, everything would be his.



The next day.


Today was the day Jian Luo went to negotiate business with the Elf Clan.


Originally, Lu Shifeng had suggested that if he wanted to do this business, he could talk to the Elf King, go through official channels for the supply, especially this year when interstellar pirates were rampant, the Elf Clan’s trade was already poor. It would be easy to negotiate now.


Jian Luo thought it could work.


So, Lu Shifeng acted as an intermediary and set up a meeting with the Minister of Finance. To make it more formal, Jian Luo decided to change into slightly more formal clothing.


Secretary Jin helped him choose, “This one? Black, very formal.”


“That’s just a black T-shirt.”


“Okay, then this one, a long shirt. It looks quite formal.”


“That’s just a long T-shirt…”


Secretary Jin choked, “Luo Luo, it seems like your clothes are all of this style.”


Jian Luo also noticed. Since he became pregnant, he mostly wore loose-fitting clothes. It was hard to find any variation in style. Originally, he thought he wouldn’t need it much, but irony always came unexpectedly and was hard to fend off.


Just when Jian Luo was troubled, Secretary Jin’s eyes lit up, “This one is nice!”


Jian Luo asked, “Which one?”


Secretary Jin pointed to the last one on the shelf, “These two.”


Jian Luo bounced off the bed and approached to take a closer look. One of them was a silver-white robe, long but not cumbersome. Around the waist, there were silver-chain phoenix patterns adorning the white fabric. The texture of the fabric was delicate and smooth, emitting a faint divine light. This was the uniform from the Phoenix Platform, a gift from Zhan Wen Platform.


Jian Luo rubbed his chin, “Not bad!”


Secretary Jin pointed to another one, “This one is good too.”


Jian Luo shifted his gaze and found a golden outfit. The long pants and shirt had pure gold patterns that shimmered under the light, exuding a distinct nouveau riche vibe. If he remembered correctly, this should be the uniform from Moonlight.


Jian Luo thought for a moment, “I’ll go with the white one; it feels more in line with the elf theme.”


Secretary Jin reminded him, “Wearing the Moonlight outfit symbolizes wealth. Since we’re here for business, we should showcase our strength!”


Jian Luo’s eyes lit up, “You make a good point!”


Under Secretary Jin’s persuasion, Jian Luo changed into the white outfit. Wearing the dazzling golden clothes, he felt different, exuding a stronger aura. Jian Luo said, “I feel like I’m filled with the power of money now.”


Secretary Jin gave him full affirmation, “Luo Luo, I think you’re unstoppable right now!”


After boosting each other’s spirits, Jian Luo finally got into the car to meet the Minister of Finance. Upon arriving at the palace, unexpectedly, he encountered Lu Shifeng. From a distance, the Marshal’s gaze fell on Jian Luo’s clothes, a piercing look.


Jian Luo greeted him, “Hey.”


Lu Shifeng approached, “Where did you get those clothes?”


“I got them from my boss back when I worked at Moonlight,” Jian Luo turned around in front of him, a smile on his refined face, “How is it? Does it look good?”


Lu Shifeng lightly pursed his lips, “Ugly.”


Jian Luo choked, glaring at Lu Shifeng fiercely. In his heart, he decided not to talk to him for the rest of the day!


Lu Shifeng added, “Business negotiation?”


Jian Luo maintained his composure, nodded, but remained silent.


“I’ll accompany you,” Lu Shifeng said, “Let’s go.”


Jian Luo raised his noble head, “No need, I can handle it myself.”


Lu Shifeng stopped in his tracks, raising an eyebrow, “If we’re talking about profits, it involves the interest rates between various planets. Are you good at math?”


Jian Luo quickly grabbed his sleeve, “Let’s go together.”


They crossed the corridor and arrived at the conference hall. Elves shared a common trait of unique beauty. Since his arrival, Jian Luo hadn’t seen an elf who wasn’t attractive.


The Elf Minister looked mature, standing up as they approached, “Hello, I am Ding Bo, in charge of negotiations. Hello, Marshal, hello, Mr. Jian!”


His gaze lingered on Jian Luo’s clothes for a moment.


Jian Luo also extended his hand for a handshake, “Hello, I’m Jian Luo, here to discuss cooperation with you.”


“Understood, there has been a briefing from above,” the Elf Minister said. “Let’s discuss the profit-sharing for the dried fruits.”


Jian Luo nodded, “Sure.”


They engaged in negotiations. The usual market price was 0.5 star coins, the wholesale price offered was 30 star coins per kilogram, with a profit split of 6:4 in Jian Luo’s favor.


After settling the deal, the Elf Minister shook hands again, “Very pleased to cooperate with Moonlight.”


Jian Luo smiled.


“It’s not easy to impress Mr. Nie,” the Minister said. “We never thought of collaborating with Mr. Nie. It’s truly an honor. Please convey my regards to him. We will cooperate with anything that follows.”


Jian Luo said, “…Don’t get too excited. I can’t guarantee that Mr. Nie will agree. I’m still in the negotiation stage with him.”


In life, one must be practical and not give hope too easily.


The Minister was stunned, hesitating, “Not sure if he will agree?”


Seeing his surprise, Jian Luo bluntly said, “What’s wrong?”


“Aren’t you his full representative?”


“You misunderstood.”


“I didn’t misunderstand,” the Minister pointed to his clothes. “Only the direct descendants of Pixiu can wear this. With the blessing of Pixiu’s divine power, even the highest skilled forgers can’t replicate this aura. The direct descendants of Pixiu have the authority to call upon star elements in any Moonlight business across the universe.”


Jian Luo choked, “Direct descendant of Pixiu? Anyone with eyes can see that I’m human.”


The Elf Minister was also confused, saying, “Aren’t you carrying Mr. Nie’s child in your belly?”


Jian Luo glanced at Lu Shifeng, whose face was gradually darkening, feeling the pressure.


This is a big misunderstanding, brother.


Lu Shifeng: Wow, now the child isn’t mine, is it?
