Side Story 6

       Cheerful music still reverberated everywhere in the amusement park, but unfortunately, there was not a single visitor which made it strangely deserted.

       The giant panda said he had to go see his senior brother first, so he left slowly with clumsy steps.

       Li Zhenruo looked at his back and asked Xia Hongshen curiously, “Is the giant panda’s cultivation level insufficient? Why does it not change into human form?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “No.”

       Li Zhenruo was even more strange, “Then why?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “I don’t know. I didn’t ask him, you can ask yourself.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t feel like asking him and turned his head to look at Li Zhenran, who was sitting on his shoulder, then turned back and shook his shoulders, trying to get him down.

       Li Zhenran jumped to the ground and looked up at him.

       Li Zhenruo hadn’t calmed down yet and turned around to see the huge Ferris wheel moving slowly, so he said to Xia Hongshen, “The master hasn’t arrived yet, right? I’ll just go around.”

       Xia Hongshen waved his hand, “Go.”

       Li Zhenruo walked toward the Ferris wheel, and Li Zhenran followed behind him. Although he couldn’t hear the footsteps, he knew that Li Zhenran was following so close and not far, and he felt a little soft-hearted. Li Zhenruo reached out and touched his butt and found that it was still painful there, and his heart hardened immediately.

       There was no staff on the Ferris wheel. He went in by himself, opened the door and sat in when the empty carriage turned to the bottom. At the same time, Li Zhenran also rushed in.

       Li Zhenruo moved for a while, but then he reached out and locked the door.

       Li Zhenran sat face to face with him.

       One person and one cat were quiet for a while. When the carriage turned to the middle, Li Zhenran jumped down, jumped to Li Zhenruo’s seat and sat down.

       Li Zhenruo looked out of the car window with one hand on his face.

       Li Zhenran moved his body silently and sat down next to Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenruo saw the smile on his face from the reflection in the glass window.

       After a brief silence, Li Zhenran raised a paw and placed it on Li Zhenruo’s leg.

       Li Zhenruo continued to remain calm.

       Li Zhenran then stood up, slowly climbed onto Li Zhenruo’s lap, and sat down.

       Li Zhenruo then looked down at him.

       Li Zhenran was also looking up at him.

       When the Ferris wheel reached the highest point, Li Zhenruo lowered his head and kissed his cat. Although the cat was reluctant, he closed his eyes and touched his lips.

       Before the kiss was over, Li Zhenruo’s cell phone rang. It was Xia Hongshen who called and asked him to hurry over. The Master Yunshen he invited had already arrived.

       The speed of Yun Po’s arrival was very fast, which was beyond everyone’s expectations.

       While Li Zhenruo hoped that Yun Po really had a way to resolve Li Zhenran’s current situation, he also regretted that Li Zhenran became a cat in only just one day.

       It was a very happy thing to hold a furry Li Zhenran.

       After they got off the Ferris wheel, Li Zhenruo walked toward the depths of the amusement park according to Xia Hongshen’s instructions. There was the management office of the amusement park, which was an office in a two-story building.

       Li Zhenruo hurried over with Li Zhenran in his arms and saw a delicate and pretty monk sitting in front of the desk in the large office on the first floor, holding a cup of hot tea in his hand and taking a sip lazily.

       “Master!” Li Zhenruo called out to Xia Hongshen who was sitting at the desk next to him.

       Xia Hongshen raised his lower jaw, “This is Master Yun Po.”

       Li Zhenruo walked over, put Li Zhenran on the table, and said, “Master, my second brother turned into a cat after eating an elixir of unknown origin.”

       Yun Po looked up at Xia Hongshen and said, “First settle the money you owe me.”

       Xia Hongshen was neither in a hurry nor angry. He stretched out his hand and pressed Li Zhenruo’s shoulder, “Apprentice.”

       Li Zhenruo was a little helpless and asked, “How much?”

       Yun Po took out his mobile phone from the monk’s robe, tapped it for a few seconds, and said, “There are still three thousand two hundred and seventy-eight accounts that have not been settled.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “It’s on my brother.”

       He spoke so forthrightly that Yun Po couldn’t help but look up at him.

       Li Zhenruo put his hand on the table, “Only if my brother can turn back into a human again. Otherwise, it would be a waste of time to say anything, wouldn’t it?”

       When he heard this, Yun Po stared at his cat on the table for a while and said, “If I can turn him back into a human, add another two thousand, making a total of five thousand two hundred and seventy-eight, will you make a deal?”

       Li Zhenruo glanced at Li Zhenran and said, “Deal!”

       Yun Po smiled with satisfaction and said to Li Zhenran, “Stretch out your hand.”

       Li Zhenran stretched out a paw.

       Yun Po caught his pulse, released his hand after a while and said to him, “Open your mouth.”

       Li Zhenran opened his mouth to let him see.

       Li Zhenruo frowned slightly and asked Xia Hongshen in a low voice, “Is this friend of yours okay or not?”

       Before Xia Hongshen spoke, Yun Po raised his head and gave him a blank look.

       Afterwards, Yun Po dipped his fingers in some tea and drew a simple circle on the table, letting Li Zhenran stand in the middle.

       After Li Zhenran stood in, the magic circle seemed to flicker with golden light and then disappeared.

       Yun Po looked at the reaction of the magic circle, touched his chin with one hand and said thoughtfully, “It’s not that he turned into a cat.”

       Li Zhenruo and Xia Hongshen looked at him at the same time.

       “Then what is it?” Li Zhenruo asked.

       “Probably a dog,” someone said as he walked in, pushing the door open from the outside.

       Several people turned their heads to look and saw that the person who came in was Luo Fei, and there was a giant panda with Luo Fei, half a step behind him, followed Luo Fei into the office.

       Yun Po “tsk” and said, “Don’t talk nonsense if you don’t understand. He is still a person.”

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but pull up a chair and sit closer to Yun Po and ask, “If he’s still a human, then why would he become this way?”

       Yun Po said, “I haven’t seen the elixir you mentioned, and I don’t know what it looks like, but his body is actually a human body, not the cat we’ve seen.”

       With a smile on his face, Luo Fei sat beside the desk and reached out to touch Li Zhenran’s head, but Li Zhenran flicked his tail and deflected his hand. He retracted his hand and said, “Not at all well behaved.”

       Li Zhenruo quickly reached out and pulled Li Zhenran over to hold him in his arms, preventing Luo Fei from touching him again.

       Yun Po reached for a pen and wrote and drew on the sticky note in front of him, but if they looked closely, they could see that he was just drawing something meaningless and irrelevant.

       As he drew, he said, “He appeared to have properties that are different from his own essence. This looks more like a bluff.”

       “Oh,” Xia Hongshen said suddenly, “I see.”

       Li Zhenruo asked, “What?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “Taishang Laojun has all kinds of strange things in the alchemy furnace. I have heard that there is a kind of medicinal pill that has the effect of blinding the eyes.”

       Li Zhenruo was still curious, “What would it become?”

       Xia Hongshen shrugged, “I’ve only heard of it, but I haven’t seen it. What will it look like? There are too many things in the furnace of Taishang Laojun. I’m afraid he may not be able to pinpoint it.”

       All eyes fell on Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenran sat calmly on Li Zhenruo’s lap without blushing or panting, accepting everyone’s attention.

       Li Zhenruo asked, “When will he return to his original form?”

       Yun Po said, “Since it is a blinding method, it is only supported by the spiritual power in the medicinal pill. It is estimated that it will not take too long, and the blinding method will naturally be broken when the spiritual power is exhausted.”

       “Ah—” At this moment, the panda next to him screamed and looked like he was hit hard, “He will not always be this way?”

       Yun Po said, “Of course, but you can go and ask Taishang Laojun for more elixir to keep him like this.”

       “Taishang Laojun?” The panda pointed his finger on his lips thoughtfully.

       Li Zhenruo said to him, “Don’t think about it! Even if he has always been like this, he will not be yours!”

       The giant panda seemed to have just reacted and was stunned for a moment and then looked tangled.

       Li Zhenruo was still worried and asked Yun Po, “Master, are you sure he can change back without doing anything?”

       Yun Po said, “It’s just a trick, how long can it last? If you’re really worried, I can help you put up a talisman and use up the remaining elixir spirit in his body, but the price is more than that.”

       Li Zhenruo was not reluctant to give up so much money, but after hearing what Yun Po said, he suddenly thought that it would be better to take this Li Zhenran back and watch it for a few more days, and it would not be possible to wait until then.

       But he didn’t want to reveal his thoughts to Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenran stretched out his claws and grabbed him, probably meaning to let Yunshen form a formation to exhaust the medicinal power of the elixir now, but Li Zhenruo pretended that he didn’t know, and after a moment of contemplation said, he said, “Then I will go back and observe for a few days.”

       Yun Po nodded and stretched out his hand to ask for money, “Give me the money first.”

       Li Zhenruo said to him, “He hasn’t become a human yet. Master, you can leave your account number, and when he returns to human form, we will you give you money as soon as possible?”

       Yun Po looked at him for a while, and said, “Then you give me a call, and I will text you the account number.”

       Li Zhenruo heard the words, put Li Zhenran on the table and touched the mobile phone. He took out his mobile phone and dialled the number that Yun Po said, and hung up when Yun Po’s phone rang. Then he looked up and found Li Zhenran was gone from the table.

       “Where’s my brother?” Li Zhenruo suddenly stood up.

       Xia Hongshen pointed outside, “He was carried away by a giant panda.”

       “Ah—” Li Zhenruo shouted, “Why didn’t you tell me?” After speaking, he suddenly ran outside.

       The giant panda carried Li Zhenran and ran, but the speed was not slow at all.

       He hadn’t really thought about where he could carry Li Zhenran, but when he heard that the black and white Garfield might turn back into a human, he rushed out with him in his arms and ran all the way to the front of the Ferris wheel. The panda stopped to gasp for breath. When he saw that the cat in his arms didn’t move at all, he said, “Let’s go ride the Ferris wheel.”

       The panda thought this was probably their last romance.

       But perhaps, not only they would have three more minutes, what if the cat fell in love with him? He knew that he was so cute, and there were not many creatures in this world that could resist his charm, right?

       Li Zhenran did not agree or object but was carried into the Ferris wheel by the giant panda.

       They sat inside the Ferris wheel. The giant panda touched Li Zhenran’s head, suddenly became sad, and pressed his face to the top of his head and said, “Is there another cat with such a round face in this world?”

       In fact, there were, but the colour was not as pleasing to him as this one.

       Li Zhenran was a little breathless in his embrace and suddenly stretched out his paws and pushed him.

       The giant panda loosened a little in surprise. Li Zhenran struggled out of his arms and ran to the window to look down with his face against the glass.

       “What’s wrong?” The giant panda also looked in the same direction and was surprised to find that a cat had climbed over the vast steel frame of the Ferris wheel in their direction.

       The Ferris wheel was constantly rotating, although the speed was very slow, and the steel frame structure was complex, but they were still moving up, and the height here was terrible.

       The yellow-and-white Garfield climbed hard, seemingly unaware of the danger, only looking in the direction of his target and rushing up quickly.

       Xia Hongshen, Luo Fei, and Yun Po chased under the Ferris wheel and looked up at the heights.

       While the giant panda was surprised, it was also worried for Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenran stared in Li Zhenruo’s direction without saying a word.

       When the carriage turned to the top of the Ferris wheel, Li Zhenruo finally climbed from the steel frame to the outside of the carriage. Li Zhenran ignored the danger and opened the carriage door, and Li Zhenruo rushed in at once.

       Li Zhenruo threw Li Zhenran to the ground, followed by Li Zhenran but a rollover to pounce him underneath, rubbing his face with his face.

       Two cats hugged each other tightly.

       The giant panda stared at them blankly and suddenly burst into tears. He thought that he might probably lose his love and did so twice at the same time.

       The Ferris wheel rotated down, and Luo Fei opened the door and pulled them all out.

       The giant panda was still crying, and when he saw Luo Fei, he stretched out his arms to hug him and said, “Senior brother, woo woo—”

       Luo Fei patted his back and said, “Go and cry.”

       Xia Hongshen smiled and said to Li Zhenruo, who turned back into a human form and hugged Li Zhenran, “Not bad.”

       Only then did Li Zhenruo turn to look at the Ferris wheel with some fear and said, “I’m afraid that my brother will be influenced by him…” Then he looked at the giant panda who was still crying and said, “I think I may have thought too much. “

       When sending them away, the panda raised a hand and waved, “I wish you happiness.”

       Li Zhenruo shouted to him, “You will find the panda you love.”

       The giant panda still looked resentful.

       After returning that day, Li Zhenran once again rejected Li Zhenruo’s courtship, but this time, instead of kicking him out of bed, he hugged him and kissed and licked him for a long time, then pushed him away lightly.

       On the third day after Li Zhenran became a cat, after rejecting Li Zhenruo’s plea five times, that morning, before Li Zhenruo woke up, he felt that he was being pressed on the bed.

       He reached out to touch his chest, and at first thought, he was touching cat hair, but later found that it felt wrong, and when he opened his eyes, he found that it was black hair.

       Li Zhenran raised his head from his chest and said to him, “Seeing that you have been dissatisfied with your desires for a few days, I will satisfy you today!”

       Li Zhenruo said “Ah—”, both pleasantly surprised and somewhat regretful, and finally chose not to continue to struggle and just lie down to enjoy it.

Side Story 5

       As he carried Li Zhenran away from the zoo, Li Zhenruo felt a little helpless.

       The phone in his pocket rang. It was Li Zhenran’s phone, which he always carried with him.

       When he answered the call, Li Zhenruo found out that the call was from Li Zhenzi. The other party was a little puzzled and asked, “Why are you answering the call? Where is my second brother?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “He’s taking a nap. I’ll relay it to him.”

       A passing car honked its horn.

       Li Zhen was silent for a moment and asked, “He took a nap on the street?”

       Li Zhenruo lied without changing his face, “I came out to buy something for him and took out his phone. What do you have to say? I’m not going to kill him.”

       Li Zhenzi finally said, “Nothing. You guys are not coming back these days?”

       Li Zhenruo hesitated a bit this time, “I won’t be back for a while. Please tell it to Uncle Li for me.”

       “Okay,” Li Zhenzi replied, then hung up the phone.

       After hanging up the phone, Li Zhenruo also felt that it would be impossible to hide from the people of the Li family sooner or later. What if they really thought he had murdered Li Zhenran for money?

       He glanced down at Li Zhenran with some distress and found that Li Zhenran was staring straight ahead as if in a daze.

       They said goodbye to Song Jun at the zoo entrance and arranged to meet at the amusement park at twelve o’clock in the evening.

       When Song Jun left, Li Zhenruo carried Li Zhenran and sat down on the side of the road, sighed and asked him, “Where are you going?”

       Li Zhenran refused to speak and just sat quietly on his lap.

       The cold wind of the first month was blowing head-on, and Li Zhenruo couldn’t help shrinking his neck. Soon he saw that Li Zhenran also shrank his neck and silently lay down on his lap, with his two paws under his stomach.

       A little girl was standing by the road not far from them, looking around. The girl was alone and did not see her parents nearby.

       Li Zhenruo noticed that Li Zhenran looked in that direction first, so he also looked over and noticed the little girl.

       The little girl stood blankly for a while, and then suddenly, she was about to run towards the road without the zebra crossing.

       A bus was heading in this direction. When Li Zhenruo was about to stop the little girl, Li Zhenran suddenly rushed out of his arms, ran to the little girl at a high speed, and bit her pants.

       The little girl stopped and looked down at him, and the bus drove past them.

       Li Zhenruo’s heart was pounding, and she ran over to pick up the little girl and walked to the side of the road, saying, “It’s too dangerous, little miss. Where are your parents?”

       When the little girl was picked up by him, he reached out and grabbed Li Zhenran’s leg, so Li Zhenran was also lifted up by her and swayed and fell beside Li Zhenruo’s leg.

       Li Zhenruo walked next to the flowerbed and put the little girl down, only to notice Li Zhenran, who was dragged like a dead. He was startled and squatted down to smooth Li Zhenran’s hair while saying to the little girl, “Little miss, can you let him go first?”

       The little girl let go and said, “Cat.”

       Li Zhenruo combed Li Zhenran’s fur carefully and said with a sigh of relief, “Yes, cat. Where are your parents, little miss?”

       The little girl shook her head.

       Li Zhenran shook off the hair on his body, slowly stepped aside, sat down and licked his forelimbs, where he was caught and lifted just now.

       Li Zhenruo was still trying to talk to the little girl, but the little girl seemed to be frightened, and she started crying after she said a few more words.

       Li Zhenran looked toward them.

       Li Zhenruo waved to him.

       Li Zhenran turned his head indifferently and after a while, slowly and reluctantly walked towards him.

       Li Zhenruo picked him up and handed it to the little girl, “Here’s the kitty.”

       The little girl reached out and placed it on her lap, touching the top of Li Zhenran’s head.

       Li Zhenruo rummaged through her clothes pockets to see if he could find any information, but there was nothing in the little girl’s clothes pockets. He had no choice but to say, “Let’s wait here. If your parents don’t come back for you, we’ll have to send you to the nearby police station, okay?”

       The little girl didn’t speak. She lowered her head and focused on touching Li Zhenran’s head.

       She didn’t quite grasp the strength, and Li Zhenran had to close his eyes subconsciously when she pressed her palm down on him.

       After waiting for a while, sure enough, an old lady was called in. It was a grandmother who came to the zoo with her granddaughter. As a result, when she left the venue, there were too many people, and the little girl was lost. She searched everywhere and couldn’t find her.

       Li Zhenruo returned the little girl to the old lady, and the other party thanked him one after another with snot and tears.

       “You’re welcome, be careful next time,” Li Zhenruo said, waving to the little girl.

       The little girl pointed at Li Zhenran on the ground, “Cat!”

       Li Zhenran turned his head and didn’t look at her.

       Li Zhenruo smiled at her, “Bye-bye.”

       When the old lady left with the little girl in her arms, Li Zhenruo suddenly bent down and picked up Li Zhenran and threw him into the sky.

       Li Zhenran’s eyes widened instantly until he fell back into Li Zhenruo’s arms, stretched out his claws and grasped Li Zhenruo’s arm tightly. Li Zhenruo couldn’t throw him again if he wanted to.

       Li Zhenruo was in a good mood, hummed a song and carried Li Zhenran into the car.

       Li Zhenran’s whole cat was dizzy. He hadn’t been picked up and thrown away for many years. His heart was beating non-stop, and his paws were tightly clasping Li Zhenruo’s arm, and he never let go.

       Li Zhenruo didn’t notice it at first; he drove the car and stepped on the brake in front of the red light at the intersection. Li Zhenran suddenly stretched out his claws and grabbed his arm. When he saw that Li Zhenran was still expressionless and even ferocious, but he looked down at the grabbed arm and felt something different.

       Back home, Li Zhenran walked in front and just jumped on the sofa. Li Zhenruo jumped on him, held him down, and asked, “Are you shy or nervous just now?”

       Li Zhenran swept over with cold eyes.

       Of course, Li Zhenruo was not afraid of him and instantly turned into a cat to hold him down and start licking his ears.

       Li Zhenran struggled to lie on his back on the sofa, stretched out his paws to push and refused for a long time and failed, so he turned over and pressed Li Zhenruo under him and stepped on his big cake face with a paw.

       Li Zhenruo was not angry but happily bit Li Zhenran’s paw.

       Li Zhenran simply stepped on Li Zhenruo for a while.

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t take it anymore and struggled to turn over and tried to crawl forward, but Li Zhenran’s whole body was pressed up, and he lowered his head and bit his neck to prevent him from running.

       Li Zhenruo was stunned. This posture was not—he gave up the struggle, put his big face under his paws, and obediently lay down and raised his tail, “o(≧w≦)o meow——”

       Li Zhenran also realised that the posture was wrong. He let go of Li Zhenruo and took two steps back, and kicked him off the sofa mercilessly.

       …

       Before twelve o’clock in the evening, Li Zhenruo drove Li Zhenran to the amusement park.

       When he was kicked off the sofa by Li Zhenran, he hit his butt in the air and landed on the ground, and his butt was still sore.

       The amusement park was the same as last night. It was dark from the outside, but after entered, they found that all the amusement facilities were open, but there were not as many guests as last night. It was empty all the way in, and only the music of the rides sounded joyfully. However, the atmosphere seemed a little weird.

       Li Zhenruo rubbed his butt when he got out of the car. He was a little angry, so he opened the passenger door and didn’t reach out to carry Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenran jumped out of the car by himself, looked up at him, and hesitated.

       Li Zhenruo had already closed the car door and walked toward the amusement park.

       Li Zhenran sighed slowly and walked inside, following his feet. They didn’t get to the carousel until they saw Xia Hongshen sitting on the turntable with his back to the carousel and playing with his mobile phone.

       Li Zhenruo didn’t understand why Xia Hongshen liked the merry-go-round so much, so he stood outside and shouted, “Master!”

       Xia Hongshen looked up at him.

       “Ah—” Li Zhenruo suddenly heard someone shouting at this moment and turned around to see the giant panda running in their direction, apparently aiming at Li Zhenran.

       Even when he was angry with Li Zhenran, Li Zhenruo was reluctant to give him away to the giant panda. When Li Zhenran stepped forward to stop him, Li Zhenran had already jumped on his shoulder.

       The giant panda ran over, stopped before Li Zhenruo, and scratched his head shyly, “You guys are here.”

       Li Zhenruo looked at him and asked a curious question, “Why are you allowed to come out at night?”

       The panda said, “Oh, I’m off work.”

       Li Zhenruo complained silently in his heart: So you were just working at the zoo.

       The giant panda looked at Li Zhenran on Li Zhenruo’s shoulder and said, “I thought about it later. After I got the pill last night, I opened the box and touched it.”

       “You touched it?” Li Zhenruo’s head was a little confused. He felt it had something to do with giant pandas, but he didn’t know what it was.

       The panda said, “Yes, I have touched it. Have you touched it too?”

       Li Zhenruo took out the medicinal pill and fed it to Li Zhenran’s mouth. Of course, he had touched it. Could it be related to this?

       The giant panda pointed at Li Zhenran, “Look, he is a black and white Garfield.”

       Li Zhenran, who became the focus of attention, very calmly grasped Li Zhenruo’s shoulder with his claws.

       At this time, Xia Hongshen jumped off the turntable and said to them, “I invited Master Yunshen of Hongyin Temple. He has researched alchemy and drawing talisman. Just ask him tonight.”

Side Story 4

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

       He took Li Zhenruo to the giant panda house.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

       Li Zhenran also straightened up slightly and looked inside.

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

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

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

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

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

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

       Li Zhenruo gave Song Jun a dissatisfied look.

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

       Li Zhenran was inexplicable and tilted his head slightly.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

       “Huh?” The giant panda grimaced.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

       The giant panda looked in the direction of Li Zhenran.

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

       The panda said, “Let me see it.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Side Story 3

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

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

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

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

       Li Zhenran turned his head and closed his eyes.

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

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

       Xia Hongshen said, “What can we do?”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

       Li Zhenran stared coldly ahead.

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

       Li Zhenran finally turned to look at him.

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

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

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

       Li Zhenran nodded.

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

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

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

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

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

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

       “Second brother…” Li Zhenruo called him.

       Li Zhenran pretended not to hear it.

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

       Li Zhenran moved away a bit.

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

       Li Zhenran pulled his tail out calmly.

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

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

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

       However, Li Zhenran ignored him.

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

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

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

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

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

       Li Zhenran turned his head coldly.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

       He asked Song Jun, “Are you going?”

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

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

       Song Jun agreed, “Okay.”

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

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

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

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

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

       Love at first sight?

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

       What does he mean by giving you something?

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

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

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

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

Side Story 2

       Li Zhenruo was terrified because of his own thoughts, and the anger on Garfield’s face became more and more obvious.

       At this time, Li Zhenruo’s cell phone suddenly rang, he reached out to answer it and saw that it was a call from Song Jun.

       When the call was connected, Song Jun said to Li Zhenruo, “Happy New Year!”

       Li Zhenruo believed that Song Jun was definitely not calling early in the morning to pay respect for the New Year, but still said, “Happy New Year, what’s up so early?”

       Song Jun said, “Oh, I found the giant panda after you left last night and asked him why he gave you something. Guess what he said?”

       Li Zhenruo is actually not too in the mood to chat with Song Jun now, but she still asks, “What?”

       There was a smile in Song Jun’s tone, “He said he likes you.”

       “He likes me?” Li Zhenruo exclaimed in surprise.

       After he finished speaking, he felt the Garfield raise a paw on his waist, turned his head to see that the other party’s face had fallen down, and suddenly lowered his voice and said, “What does he like about me? We are of different species.”

       Song Jun seemed to be in a good mood, “He said that he had never seen a cat with such a round face, like a silver plate with a full moon, radiant.”

       Li Zhenruo raised his hand to cover his face, “I am thankful for his words…..”

       Song Jun’s voice over there holding in laughter was obvious, “So he said that he seemed to fall in love with you at first sight, but he wasn’t sure, after all, he still prefers pandas, and the things from last night were given to you as a gift, so you don’t have to be too concerned.”

       Li Zhenruo moved his mouth and found that he didn’t know what to say.

       Song Jun continued, “You really don’t need to worry too much, that little money is nothing to a giant panda, not to mention he has such a rich senior brother.”

       “Senior brother?” Li Zhenruo was distracted.

       Song Jun said, “You don’t know he is Luo Fei’s junior brother? Aren’t you working with Luo Fei?”

       Li Zhenruo was stunned, “I’ve never heard of this. Could it be that Luo Fei is also a giant panda?”

       Song Jun denied it, “He’s not. I haven’t seen Luo Fei’s real body, so I don’t know what he is.”

       “Anyway,” Li Zhenruo wanted to tell Song Jun about feeding his second brother the elixir last night, but Song Jun also said at the same time, “Anyway, I’m calling to tell you something.”

       So Li Zhenruo had to ask, “What’s the matter?”

       Song Jun’s tone was a little more serious, “Don’t take that elixir from last night just yet.”

       “Ah?” Li Zhenruo became nervous, straightened his back and knelt on the bed, “Is there a problem?”

       Song Jun said, “The auction ended last night, and Senior Brother Xia caught the person who brought the elixir to the auction. He admitted that this is not an elixir to improve cultivation at all.”

       Li Zhenruo hurriedly asked, “Then what is it? Will there be a problem with eating it?”

       Song Jun said to him, “I don’t know yet. It is said that the medicinal pill was indeed leaked from Taishang Laojun’s pill furnace, but the specific function is unknown for the time being. Senior brother said you had better bring it to let him find someone to look at.”

       “Ah—” Li Zhenruo exclaimed.

       Song Jun was taken aback, “What’s wrong?”

       Li Zhenruo turned her head and stared at Garfield lying beside the pillow, “It’s too late!”

       Song Jun couldn’t help but hurriedly ask, “Did you eat it? Did something happen?”

       Li Zhenruo swallowed hard, “I gave it to my second brother, and then—he seems to have turned into a cat…”

       The Garfield by the pillow looked at him coldly.

       Song Jun was silent for a moment, unable to hold back the “wow”, then took off his phone and seemed to say something to the person next to him.

       Li Zhenruo asked impatiently, “What should I do?”

       After a while, Song Jun answered him from the other side of the phone, “Are you serious?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Of course I’m serious!”

       Song Jun said, “Then you’d better bring your second brother here, maybe Senior Brother Xia has a solution.”

       Li Zhenruo could only answer, “Okay, I’ll be right here.”

       He hung up the phone, and Li Zhenruo timidly looked at his second brother.

       Most of the Garfield’s face was black as if it was used to brush the bottom of a pot, and his expression was extremely difficult to see.

       Li Zhenruo cautiously and tentatively called out, “Li Zhenran?”

       Garfield frowned slightly.

       In the cold winter, the doors and windows were closed. It was impossible for a wild cat to get in from the outside, and his second brother wouldn’t get up and go out so quietly and still hadn’t come back. If he looked at the door of the room, wasn’t it still locked at this time?

       Although the Garfield’s expression couldn’t be as rich as that of a human being, his second brother’s expression was not rich at all, and that frowning expression was clearly an expression of trying his best to endure.

       Li Zhenruo rushed towards him at once, “Second brother?”

       Li Zhenran nimbly dodged and ran to the end of the bed.

       Li Zhenruo didn’t give up and rushed over again, this time pressing Li Zhenran on the bed, but when his head was approaching, Li Zhenran raised a paw against his forehead, preventing him from getting close.

       But how does a cat’s strength compare to that of a human being? Li Zhenruo buried his face in Li Zhenran’s belly and rubbed it back and forth.

       Ah, so soft and warm!

       In the middle of the rub, Li Zhenruo also turned back into a cat, pressing Li Zhenran under him with force, hugging his neck with his paws, and licking his chin back and forth.

       Li Zhenran pulled him away and just wanted to get out of bed when Li Zhenruo rushed over and hugged him again.

       Although it was a little mean, Li Zhenruo thought that Li Zhenran was so cute, help!

       Li Zhenran disappeared early in the morning on the first day of the New Year, and Li Zhenruo still didn’t know how to explain it to the Li family.

       He found a sports shoulder bag from the cabinet in Li Zhenran’s room, stuffed Li Zhenran in it, and opened the door to go out.

       When he went down from the third floor to the second floor, Li Zhenruo met Li Zhenzi who had just come out of the room.

       Li Zhenzi’s hair was still dishevelled. He was wearing slippers, had sleepy eyes, and said to him, “Morning, Happy New Year.”

       Li Zhenruo lifted the backpack strap, nodded and said, “Morning.”

       Li Zhenzi saw that he had even put on his coat, so he asked, “Are you going out so early on the first day of the New Year?”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t want to say more, just “Um.”

       Li Zhenzi followed him downstairs, always felt that he was a little weird, and asked, “Where’s my second brother?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “He has already gone out.”

       Li Zhen stood on the last stairway and stopped, “So early?”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “En, he was still waiting for me. If there is a delay outside, he might not be back in the next two days. Please tell Uncle Li for me.”

       Li Zhenzi looked at him strangely, “If it wasn’t so long ago, I would have suspected that you had killed my second brother and split up with him.”

       Li Zhenruo turned his head and gave him a blank look. Without saying anything, he walked to the entrance hall to change his shoes.

       On the first day of the New Year, the school was as deserted as the streets. The guard outside the school was almost reluctant to let Li Zhenruo in. Later, Li Zhenruo called Song Jun so the guard would open the door.

       After they got in the car, Li Zhenruo put Li Zhenran out of the sports bag.

       Li Zhenran had been very unhappy and was not even willing to exchange a few words with Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenruo wanted to tease him, and when he went out, he pulled a piece of grass and stretched it out in front of Li Zhenran’s eyes, but Li Zhenran pressed down the grass with a paw and looked at him blankly.

       Li Zhenruo felt that he could see Li Zhenran’s implicitly saying: Drive well!

       He parked the car under Xia Hongshen’s small building, Li Zhenruo wanted to get off the car with Li Zhenran in his arms, but Li Zhenran jumped off when he opened the car door.

       The Garfield’s entire face was originally slumped downwards, but now Li Zhenran’s face slumped even more, with a look of imposing manner that no strangers should approach.

       Li Zhenruo had no choice but to follow behind him.

       They went up to the second floor of the small building, and the door to the room on the right side of the stairs opened first. Long Xing came out wearing pyjamas and slippers and was surprised to see Li Zhenruo bringing a cat over.

       He trotted over and shouted, “Little Garfield, you brought a Garfield over here?”

       Li Zhenruo was powerless to correct him that his own name was not Garfield.

       Long Xing bent down, put his hands on his knees, looked down at Li Zhenran, and said in surprise, “You look just like you, but the fur colour is different, it’s not your brother, right?”

       Li Zhenruo whispered, “It’s my second brother.”

       “Your second brother?” Long Xing had heard of Li Zhenran, and his head was a little confused, “Isn’t your second brother…?”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t dare to say too much in front of Li Zhenran, and could only say, “It’s too complicated to explain it clearly for now. I’ll go to the master first and talk to you later.”

       “Okay,” Long Xing nodded obediently, “Go ahead.”

       As soon as they finished speaking, Song Jun had already opened the door of the room and greeted Li Zhenruo, “Come here, your master is already up.”

       When Li Zhenran heard this, he walked ahead in the direction of Song Jun’s room without looking back.

       Li Zhenruo hurriedly followed, and as soon as he entered the door, he saw Xia Hongshen sitting by the bed in a coat and playing games.

       Song Jun squatted in front of Li Zhenran and said “wow”. He seemed to want to touch Li Zhenran’s head, but he felt it was not good, so he just said, “Garfield, your second brother looks exactly like you.”

       When he heard Song Jun’s words, Li Zhenruo also squatted down and looked at Li Zhenran carefully. It seemed that except for the colour of his coat, everything else looked exactly the same as him. Even then the colour of his coat and also the yellow parts of his body fur were all replaced with black fur.

       Li Zhenran looked at them blankly, trying to suppress his emotions.

       Li Zhenruo knew that he was in trouble, and felt sorry in his heart. He reached out to touch the top of Li Zhenran’s head, but Li Zhenran avoided him. Li Zhenruo didn’t give up and continued to reach out and touch, this time Li Zhenran raised his paw and opened his hand.

       The third time, Li Zhenruo turned into a cat and rushed up, pressing Li Zhenran to the ground and rubbing it, Li Zhenran was slapped by him indifferently, and when Li Zhenruo licked his lips at the end, he couldn’t help sticking out his tongue back. After licking it, Li Zhenruo suddenly looked at him with light.

       Song Jun hurriedly picked up his mobile phone from the bed, took more than ten photos of them, and planned to post them on Weibo.

       “Okay,” Xia Hongshen tapped on the bed with his cell phone at this time, “Show him to me.”

       Li Zhenruo turned back into a human form, grabbed Li Zhenran quickly, picked him up by the neck, and handed him to Xia Hongshen.

       Xia Hongshen didn’t reach out to pick it up, but just put the phone aside, looked at Li Zhenran carefully, and pondered, “It’s exactly the same.”

       Li Zhenruo put Li Zhenran on the ground, sat beside the bed and asked Xia Hongshen, “Master, what’s going on?”

       Xia Hongshen looked at him, “Why did you give it to him to eat?”

       Li Zhenruo was a little embarrassed to say it, but Xia Hongshen didn’t have to guess to know his little thought.

       Li Zhenran felt a little itchy on his back, but he didn’t want to really lift one leg to scratch the itch like a cat, so he jumped on Li Zhenruo’s leg and rubbed his stomach.

       This was the first time that Li Zhenran has been so close to him since he turned into a cat. Li Zhenruo was immediately flattered and scratched Li Zhenran’s chin, but he turned his head to avoid him and then saw his back rubbing against him, and quickly reached out to help him scratch the itch.

       While scratching, Li Zhenruo asked Xia Hongshen, “Master, what kind of medicine is this? Why is he like this?”

       Xia Hongshen touched his chin, “I don’t know either. There are so many things in Taishang Laojun’s pill furnace, and sometimes even he can’t tell them apart, do you think others can?”

       Li Zhenruo was a little anxious, “Then what should I do? It’s okay because it’s New Year’s holiday these few days. After the New Year, how can my second brother go back to work?”

       Xia Hongshen said casually, “Can’t you communicate with him? Can you be his secretary and listen to his orders?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Master, don’t joke.”

       At this time, Song Jun took Xia Hongshen’s cat biscuit and came to tease Li Zhenran, but Li Zhenran didn’t even look at it.

       Song Jun lamented, “What a determined cat.”

       Then Xia Hongshen grabbed his hand and fed it into his mouth to eat.

       When he saw this, Li Zhenruo said, “I have canned tuna imported from Norway over there. Master, do you want it?”

       Xia Hongshen folded his hands on his chest, pondered for a long time, and said, “I’ll make a call and ask an old friend to come over, he may be able to know.”

       Li Zhenruo said loudly, “Thank you, Master!”

Side Story 1

       Before they knew it, it was already the Lunar New Year.

       Li Jianglin was discharged from the hospital before New Year’s Eve. Although his body had not fully recovered, he did not want to stay in the hospital for New Year’s Eve.

       Li Zhenruo stayed at Li’s house for the New Year’s Eve dinner.

       Every year he had a New Year’s Eve dinner at Li’s house, but this year was the first time as a guest. Li Zhenruo felt that the atmosphere was a bit strange.

       There were only two of Li Jianglin’s four sons left. Wen Chun also packed up and moved away from Li’s house, so now the house seemed a little desolated. In addition, Wang Ma was taken back by his children for the Chinese New Year, and the whole family was even more deserted.

       After dinner, Li Jianglin didn’t go back to his study or bedroom and sat in the living room watching TV.

       He didn’t leave, and neither Li Zhenran nor Li Zhenzi went back to the room but sat down on the sofa to accompany him. On the other hand, Zhu Kai went out to walk the dog as usual after eating and sat down beside Li Jianglin obediently after walking the dog.

       Li Zhenruo was sitting on the sofa and stared at the TV screen absent-mindedly wondering whether to sleep here tonight or pretend to leave later and sneak back in as a cat.

       Although Li Jianglin did not object to him and Li Zhenran, his attitude was far from that of an amiable father-in-law. He was always polite and distant.

       It must not be Li Jianglin’s intention to invite him to Li’s house for New Year’s Eve dinner, but rather it was that he had no objection when Li Zhenran. If he kissed and followed Li Zhenran back to the room in front of Li Jianglin, he wondered if it would make Li Jianglin’s illness even worse.

       When he was thinking about it absent-mindedly, Li Zhenruo’s cell phone suddenly rang.

       Li Zhenran glanced at him.

       Li Zhenruo took out his mobile phone and saw that Xia Hongshen was calling, so he picked it up and went to the dining room to answer the call.

       As soon as the phone was connected, Li Zhenruo said to Xia Hongshen, “Happy New Year, Master!”

       In the end, Xia Hongshen just said, “Can you come out now?”

       “Now?” Li Zhenruo was stunned. Although it was only after eight o’clock in the evening, it was already dark outside. He glanced at Li Zhenran again and asked in a low voice, “What’s the rush?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “Come to the city amusement park, the demon market will be opened tonight, and I will show you.”

       “Demon market?” Li Zhenruo felt like he heard something incredible.

       Xia Hong felt that Li Zhenruo was too long-winded, “Coming?”

       Li Zhenruo glanced at Li Zhenran, “But…”

       Xia Hongshen said, “Whatever,” and wanted to hang up the phone.

       “I’ll come!” Li Zhenruo hurriedly called out to him, “But I want to come back early to spend the New Year with my second brother.” He said the last sentence in a low voice.

       Xia Hongshen replied, “You can come back whenever you want.”

       As he hung up the phone, Li Zhenruo walked over and said, “I’m going out.”

       Everyone in the room turned to look at him.

       However, Li Jianglin just glanced at him and turned back to continue watching TV, while Li Zhenzi smiled meaningfully.

       Li Zhenran stood up and asked him, “Where are you going? Shall I drive you?”

       Li Zhenruo had already put on his coat and said, “My Master told me to go out, I should be back soon. You can watch TV with Uncle Li for a while.”

       Li Zhenran didn’t say anything, but caught up when Li Zhenruo had come out of the building and walked into the yard. Li Zhenran an arm around his waist from behind, pressed his chest against his back, and whispered in his ear, “Where to?”

       Li Zhenruo felt the heat lapping at him and his ears were tingling. He said, “Master asked me to go out.”

       “It’s New Year’s Eve Day,” Li Zhenran said as he reached out and gave his waist a squeeze.

       Li Zhenruo shrank his waist and said, “Then I have to spend the New Year with you later. I will be back soon. Just wait for me.”

       After he finished speaking, he reached out and grabbed Li Zhenran’s arm. He found that he was not wearing a coat, and quickly said, “It’s too cold outside, you go back first.”

       Li Zhenran held his hand tightly and said, “It’s eight o’clock now, and you must be back before twelve o’clock.”

       Li Zhenruo turned around and put his arms around his shoulder, kissing his lips, “Wait for me.”

       The streets on New Year’s Eve were very deserted, with hardly a car to be seen coming and going. On the way, Li Zhenruo received another call from Song Jun, telling him that because of New Year’s Eve, the demon market was opened ahead of schedule today, and it was now possible to get in.

       Li Zhenruo was very curious and asked Song Jun, “Why do you want to go to the demon market on new year’s eve?”

       Song Jun said, “You human beings celebrate the New Year, Senior Brother Xia also wants everyone to have a good time together. Otherwise how lonely would it be if a demon lived in solitary?”

       Li Zhenruo felt that his words were surprisingly reasonable.

       They drove to the parking lot of the city’s amusement park, and Li Zhenruo found that there was more than one car parked, one of which was a familiar Hummer. When he looked at the license plate carefully, he found that it was his boss Luo Fei’s car.

       In the so-called demon market, probably all the demons in the city would come, right?

       As he thought of this, Li Zhenruo was a little nervous for no reason and wondered if he would see something strange.

       It was dark in the amusement park, but there was a small passageway where the ticket was checked, and there were people checking tickets at the entrance.

       Li Zhenruo realized that he had no tickets, and hesitated for a while about whether to call Xia Hongshen, but when he looked closely, he realized that the person checking the tickets turned out to be Feng Junyuan.

       The handsome Doctor xiao Feng took off his white coat and stood at the ticket gate with an expressionless face in his down jacket. After he saw Li Zhenruo, he raised his hand and waved to him.

       Li Zhenruo walked over, “Xiao Feng?”

       Feng Junyuan said, “Come in quickly.”

       Li Zhenruo still felt it was strange, “Are you checking tickets here?”

       Feng Junyuan nodded.

       Li Zhenruo asked him, “Why you?”

       Feng Junyuan said, “Because my Master is the owner of the demon market.”

       Li Zhenruo was stunned for a moment before he reacted, “You mean my Master?”

       Feng Junyuan nodded and said to him, “Come in, Master is waiting for you.”

       Li Zhenruo walked through the ticket gate and suddenly found that the amusement park, which looked dark outside, became brightly lit and crowded.

       There were colourful lanterns hanging on the trees everywhere, children with balloons running back and forth, the Ferris wheel in the distance was turning gently, and cheerful songs reverberated throughout the amusement park. But even though it was the Chinese New Year, there was a Christmas song playing, and he didn’t know what it meant.

       A child fell while running past Li Zhenruo. Li Zhenruo was about to squat down to help him but saw that the original little boy had turned into a large lizard and quickly crawled forward.

       Li Zhenruo was taken aback. He stood there watching the people coming and going in the amusement park, and suddenly realized that these people were not human, but were all demons.

       Then what is he?

       Li Zhenruo thought about it for a long time and felt that he could only be considered a half-demon at most. Although he was a half-demon, he was at least related to a demon, so he calmly walked inside.

       At the fork in the road ahead, a giant panda was selling balloons.

       Li Zhenruo looked him up and down, thinking about whether it was a real giant panda, someone wearing a giant panda doll suit, or some other demon that had taken on the appearance of a giant panda.

       The giant panda just handed the balloon to a child, and then looked in Li Zhenruo’s direction.

       Li Zhenruo put the car key in his hand into his coat pocket and walked towards it, asking, “Hello, are you a real giant panda?”

       The giant panda looked at him in a daze, suddenly approached him to smell it, and then said, “What is your real form?”

       Li Zhenruo thought that he had already arrived in this environment. He was not afraid that others would see him as a cat. Instead, he should be afraid that others would think he was a human being, so he simply showed the giant panda his cat form.

       But it was only a matter of moments. Li Zhenruo, who had recovered his human form, picked up the coat that fell on the ground to put it on and smiled at the panda.

       The giant panda looked at him without saying a word.

       Li Zhenruo was a little puzzled and wanted to go around it. He continue to walk inside, but unexpectedly the giant panda suddenly reached out and handed him a balloon, “For you,” the giant panda said.

       Li Zhenruo took the balloon thread from its paws and said, “Thank you.”

       Then, without further delay, they walked to the centre of the amusement park.

       The surroundings were getting more and more lively, the amusement facilities were all open, and there were colourful lights and happy music everywhere.

       Li Zhenruo saw Song Jun standing in front of the merry-go-round and beckoned to him from a distance, so he quickened his pace and walked over, “Song Jun!”

       Song Jun looked in the direction behind him.

       Li Zhenruo asked strangely, “What?”

       Song Jun said, “The giant panda is watching you.”

       Li Zhenruo also looked back and saw the giant panda holding a handful of balloons in his hand, and he was still looking at him. Because of the poor lighting, Li Zhenruo couldn’t see the expression on its face, so he turned around and said to Song Jun, “Where’s Master?”

       Song Jun pointed to the merry-go-round behind him.

       Li Zhenruo turned his head to look and saw that the merry-go-round was empty and there was no one else, only a black leopard was lying in the middle, his head resting on a wooden horse, expressionlessly following the giant carousel.

       To say it was a black leopard was not quite right. When Li Zhenruo looked closely, he found that Xia Hongshen’s form was somewhat different from the leopard. It looked more terrifying and fierce.

       When Xia Hongshen saw Li Zhenruo, he yawned deeply, turned into a human form and sat lazily on the wooden horse, and hooked his fingers at him.

       Li Zhenruo jumped on the rotating wooden horse turntable, walked to Xia Hongshen’s side, and bowed slightly, “Master, what’s the matter with you calling me here?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “The demon market will be opened tonight, let’s see if you can find anything to improve your cultivation.”

       Li Zhenruo was turned dizzy by the merry-go-round, and he said, “Master, can we talk in another place?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “No good.”

       In the end, Xia Hongshen still didn’t go down, Li Zhenruo simply sat down cross-legged beside him, closed his eyes and leaned his head on the wooden horse in front of him, and asked, “What is the thing that enhances my cultivation?”

       Xia Hongshen thought for a while, “I don’t know, you can watch it at the auction tonight.”

       Li Zhenruo asked again, “What will happen to me if I improve my cultivation? Become an immortal?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “As if. Do you think it’s easy to become an immortal?”

       Li Zhenruo was silent for a while, “Immortality?”

       Xia Hongshen said to him, “It is still possible to live for hundreds of years.”

       Li Zhenruo heard the words and said in a sullen voice, “Then I don’t want to, I just want to live for a few more decades and die with my second brother.”

       Xia Hongshen looked down at him. He had raised his foot, but in the end, he couldn’t bear to step on him, and finally said only one word, “Get lost.”

       He accepted a super unpromising apprentice, but Xia Hongshen didn’t think there was anything wrong. Li Zhenruo was not like him, he had Song Jun and the others by his side for a long time. If only one person had an endless lifespan, sometimes it might be a tragedy.

       Li Zhenruo didn’t really go away. Although he was thinking about Li Zhenran’s desire to go back to spend the New Year with him, he still wanted to stay and watch the so-called auction.

       Song Jun rubbed up to Li Zhenruo’s side and said to him, “Don’t worry about it, senior brother is actually doing for your own good.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I understand, but I’m just embarrassed for causing Master to accept an apprentice who can’t learn anything from him.”

       Song Jun said, “He was just saying that. He can’t afford anything on the auction tonight.”

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t help turning his head to look at Song Jun, “Master is already so poor?”

       Song Jun smiled, “Actually, he is not poor. He has a few priceless treasures around him, but unfortunately, he is reluctant to sell them all his life.”

       As soon as he said that, the lights of the carousel dimmed, and all the projection lights shone on the small stage next to it. A host took the microphone to the stage, announcing that the auction was about to start, and the entire amusement park crowded over there, including those that Li Zhenruo thought of as children.

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but turn his head to look around. He saw Xi Anling standing with a gentle young man in the crowd, snatching cotton candy from the man’s hand; Long Xing was with a tall young man and he didn’t know what they were talking about, and he was hugged up by the young man; Feng Junyuan stood beside Luo Fei, grabbed a c-cktail from somewhere and wanted to drink it, but Luo Fei snatched it away.

       The very lively New Year’s Eve was much more lively than that of the Li family sitting in the living room and watching TV. For this reason, Li Zhenruo was more and more eager to go back to accompany Li Zhenran.

       Xia Hongshen shifted his position and lay on the top of the merry-go-round with his black tail swinging carelessly behind him.

       The host saw that almost everyone gathered, knocked on the auction hammer, and announced the official start of the auction.

       Li Zhenruo felt that tonight was an eye-opener. There were all kinds of messes in the entire auction. Of course, most of them were valuable to these monsters, but he didn’t know the significance of those things.

       Until the host took a wooden box and showed it to everyone, and said, “This is the elixir that fell out of Taishang Laojun’s1Taishang Laojun believed to be the true incarnation of the spiritual philosopher Laozi, he was already identified as a personification of the Tao as early as the beginning of the Later Han dynasty. single furnace. Eating one can increase your cultivation for five hundred years.”

       “Do you want it?” Xia Hongshen suddenly appeared behind Li Zhenruo and asked him in a low voice.

       Li Zhenruo was startled, but he didn’t rush to say whether he wanted it or not, but instead asked Xia Hongshen, “Can you afford it?”

       Xia Hongshen said confidently, “I can afford a black box2something unknown on the inside and can only be speculated.”

       As he said that, he heard someone beside him bidding loudly.

       Li Zhenruo heard the voice and looked over, and saw that the bidder turned out to be a giant panda. For a while, all the people who could talk began to whisper, and Li Zhenruo heard an old man next to him say, “Giant panda, how many are there richer than him? If he wants this thing, the others must have no hope.”

       Another person said, “We can’t just give it to him without raising the price, right?”

       The old man said, “Are you stupid? You can’t win the auction, and you even raise the price to offend the giant panda. What are you trying to do?”

       The man pondered for a moment and stopped talking.

       Song Jun asked curiously, “Why does the panda want this?”

       No one answered him. The giant panda stood in the distance, holding a bamboo in his hand, nibbling on it and looking at the auction table on tiptoe.

       Li Zhenruo was also curious, “Are giant pandas rich and powerful?”

       His voice was not too loud, but people around him all looked at him, and someone gave him a roll of eyes, “Giant panda, national treasure, don’t you know?”

       Li Zhenruo suddenly felt a little stupid.

       It was already past eleven o’clock in the evening when the auction ended. Li Zhenruo said that he did not want to increase his cultivation. Xia Hongshen disliked him for not being ambitious but didn’t make it difficult for him.

       Li Zhenruo looked at the time and planned to say goodbye to Xia Hongshen, but when he was about to leave, the giant panda stood in front of him and blocked his way.

       “?” Li Zhenruo was baffled.

       The giant panda suddenly reached out, stuffed a wooden box into Li Zhenruo’s hand, and said, “It’s for you!” Then his heavy body ran away like a gust of wind.

       Li Zhenruo stared at the wooden box that was stuffed into his hand, and after a while, he responded and said, “Is this the elixir just now?”

       Song Jun leaned closer to smell, “It should be.”

       Li Zhenruo raised his head to look for the giant panda but found that he could not find the panda. He said blankly, “He said it was given to me?”

       “Well,” Song Jun nodded.

       Li Zhenruo said, “Then what should I do?”

       Song Jun said, “It’s yours if he gave it to you, you can do whatever you want. This is a matter of no regrets.”

       Li Zhenruo still didn’t know what was going on, “Why did he give me this?”

       Song Jun thought for a while and said to Li Zhenruo, “It’s getting late, you go back first, and I’ll ask him for you.”

       When he heard this, Li Zhenruo took another look at the time. He had to go back quickly, otherwise, Li Zhenran would probably be angry if he didn’t get home at twelve o’clock, so he could only say, “Well, if you have any news, give me a call.”

       He was only able to put things away first.

       When he drove back to Li’s house, the lights in the living room were already dimmed. It must be because Li Jianglin couldn’t stay up too late. After returning to the room, everyone went to rest.

       When Li Zhenran heard the sound of the car, he went downstairs to pick him up and opened the door of the living room. Li Zhenruo rushed into Li Zhenran’s arms with air-conditioned air, and said vaguely in the kiss, “Happy New Year.”

       When they returned to the room, Li Zhenran pressed Li Zhenruo behind the door, sucked his earlobe and asked, “Where did you go? Can you tell me now?”

       Li Zhenruo gasped slightly and replied, “I was called by Master to the amusement park.”

       Li Zhenran raised his head, “There are still people in the amusement park at this time?”

       Li Zhenruo raised one leg and hooked his waist, “Keep going, please.”

       Li Zhenran moved slightly away from him, and reached out to touch his chest, “What is this?”

       What he took out from the inner pocket of Li Zhenruo’s shirt was the box given to Li Zhenruo by the panda. He inexplicably lifted the lid to see it.

       Li Zhenruo didn’t stop him, just stared at the so-called elixir in the box thoughtfully.

       He didn’t want a few hundred years of cultivation to increase his life expectancy by a few hundred years, but if this thing could increase Li Zhenran’s lifespan, it would be another matter.

       If he could add a few hundred years of cultivation to Li Zhenran’s body, even if he could not live forever, he would certainly be able to prolong his life. At that time, he might have had the mind to cultivate, just to spend more time with Li Zhenran.

       However, this thing should not belong to him, but to a giant panda. Although the other party said that it was given to him, Li Zhenruo still did not understand what happened.

       What if the giant panda comes back at the end?

       Li Zhenran saw that Li Zhenruo was starting to fret and asked, “What?”

       If the giant panda came to ask for it, he could say that he had accidentally eaten it, and he would return all the money that the giant panda spent at the auction.

       Li Zhenran raised the box, “Something your master gave you?”

       Li Zhenruo shook his head, “The panda gave it to me.”

       “Giant panda?” Li Zhenran looked at him strangely.

       Li Zhenruo felt that he should not continue to be indecisive. He reached out and picked up the medicine pill in the box and said to Li Zhenran, “Open your mouth.”

       Li Zhenran asked suspiciously, “Ah?” Li Zhenruo threw the medicinal pill into him.

       This time, he swallowed too quickly and almost choked on his organs. Li Zhenran covered his mouth and coughed a few times. He frowned while pouring water and asked, “What is that?”

       Li Zhenruo was still standing there, suddenly unable to contain his excitement. The corner of his mouth lifted into a smile, “Good thing,” he said.

       The next morning, Li Zhenruo woke up in the warm bed, and before he opened his eyes, he subconsciously reached out to touch Li Zhenran who was beside him, trying to shrink into his arms.

       But the hand felt empty and nothing was touched.

       He thought that Li Zhenran had gotten up. Li Zhenruo opened his eyes blankly and saw a pair of dark eyes looking at him at a very close distance.

       He was startled and stepped back suddenly, only to realize that it was a black and white Garfield lying on the pillow.

       “Where did the cat come from?” Li Zhenruo sat up in shock, looking back and couldn’t find Li Zhenran’s shadow.

       He turned his head to look at the cat again. When he saw that the cat was serious and a little angry, he suddenly had a strange thought. He asked, “Who are you…?”

Chapter 93

       The next day, he continued with Tian Chong to check the warehouse.

       Today’s Tian Chong looks much more serious than yesterday.

       Originally, their warehouse department and these warehouse managers below were very familiar with each other, but when Li Zhenruo arrived here, they just followed him obediently and didn’t say anything more to the person in charge.

       The warehouse here was larger, and the number of inbound and outbound shipments was also considerable. It was already dark in the afternoon when things were over.

       Tian Chong’s cell phone rang suddenly, and when he saw it was an unfamiliar phone number, he answered it strangely.

       It turned out to be a calm man’s voice, “Are you Tian Chong from the warehouse department?”

       Tian Chong heard the other party’s tone was like that of the company’s superior, and quickly responded with a suitable attitude, “I am. To whom I am speaking?”

       The person on the other end of the phone said, “I’m Luo Fei, please let Jason answer the phone. His phone is off.”

       When Tian Chong heard the name Luo Fei, he was stunned for a moment, and then he reacted with a jolt, and quickly said, “Yes, yes, Mr. Luo, just a moment.”

       He hurriedly handed the phone to Li Zhenruo, and mouthed nervously, “Big Boss!”

       Li Zhenruo took it and gave a somewhat lazy “hello”.

       Luo Fei asked him, “Why isn’t it on?”

       Li Zhenruo took out his mobile phone and found that it had run out of battery some time ago.

       Luo Fei said, “I’ll give you the address and we’ll have dinner tonight.”

       Li Zhenruo’s tone was full of suspicion, “You’re inviting me to dinner?”

       Luo Fei said, “And with xiao Feng, coming?”

       Li Zhenruo thought for a moment, “There’s also Li Zhenran, right?”

       Luo Fei just laughed.

       Li Zhenruo said helplessly, “Did you take money from him?”

       Luo Fei still laughed with an unknown meaning.

       Li Zhenruo finally asked Luo Fei to give him the address, and then hung up the phone.

       He returned the phone to Tian Chong, and Li Zhenruo asked the driver to drop him off at a convenient place in the city for a taxi, and then sent Tian Chong straight back to the office.

       Until Li Zhenruo got out of the car, Tian Chong was still holding his phone and trying to recall. He asked the driver, “Have you heard of Li Zhenran? I think the name sounds familiar.”

       The driver said casually, “Isn’t it the second son of Yunlin, who is very close to our big boss.”

       Tian Chong’s eyes widened, “It’s him! Thought so!”

       Li Zhenruo was so young, and Luo Fei valued him as soon as he came to the company. Everyone was guessing that the young man must have a backup. Now it seemed that he was not wrong.

       He took a taxi to the western restaurant that Luo Fei told him about, but Li Zhenruo suddenly felt a little grimy before entering.

       The warehouse was on the outskirts of the city, where the environment was open and windy, and Li Zhenruo felt that his hair was dusty.

       So he went to the bathroom first, changed into a clean and decent suit from the cubicle, and walked towards the restaurant.

       Luo Fei and Feng Junyuan were sitting in a comfortable corner of the restaurant, and when they saw Li Zhenruo from a distance, Feng Junyuan raised a hand to greet him.

       Li Zhenruo sat down and asked, “Where’s Li Zhenran?”

       Luo Fei said, “Do you miss him so much?”

       Li Zhenruo was a little tired, yawned and didn’t bother to pay attention to him, and said, “We’re not waiting for him? Can I order now?”

       Feng Junyuan got up from Luo Fei’s side, sat beside Li Zhenruo, and reached out to touch his head.

       Li Zhenruo knew that several of his master’s family regarded him as a cat, and he was used to their intimate actions, so he did not reject it, and reached out to hug him, “Xiao Feng.”

       Feng Junyuan also hugged him, stroking his hair while trying to kiss his forehead, but Luo Fei pulled him back.

       Luo Fei said, “Stop it.”

       Li Zhenruo whispered to Feng Junyuan, “You refuse to tell me, but I think I still know what Luo Fei is?”

       Feng Junyuan looked at him in surprise, “Really?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “He’s a rabbit, right?”

       Feng Junyuan still looked surprised, “Is he a rabbit?”

       Luo Fei looked at them coldly, picked up the fork on the table and pointed at Li Zhenruo, “I’m deducting your bonus.”

       Li Zhenran came a little late, sat down and said, “Sorry, there is a delay.”

       When he saw that his expression was not too relaxed, Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but ask, “What’s wrong?”

       Li Zhenran picked up the water glass and took a sip of water, “Dad is not feeling well. I took him to the hospital in the afternoon, and I will visit him later in the evening.”

       Luo Fei asked, “Is everything alright?”

       Li Zhenran said, “It’s nothing, it’s an old age problem, it’s repeated.”

       Li Zhenruo recalled the last time he saw Li Jianglin, his body seemed to be gradually improving.

       Li Zhentai’s death was definitely a blow to Li Jianglin, however, it also gave him complete closure. After that, Li Jianglin’s body was actually recovering slowly, but it was impossible to return to its original state.

       Li Zhenruo just didn’t expect that he would suddenly be admitted to the hospital at this time.

       The Li family always had a family doctor and a caretaker living at home. The fact that he was taken to the hospital was probably because the situation was a bit serious.

       Li Zhenran was in a hurry to eat.

       After he ate, he stretched his arms around Li Zhenruo’s shoulders, kissed him on the cheek, and said, “I have to go to the hospital, let Luo Fei take you home.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t think anything was wrong, he just reached out and grabbed Li Zhenran’s arm and said, “I’ll go with you.”

       “You’re coming?” Li Zhenran asked him.

       Li Zhenruo said, “Well, I want to go and see.”

       Li Zhenran hesitated for a while, and finally said, “Let’s go together then.”

       Li Zhenruo was still more or less concerned about Li Jianglin. His biological mother had passed away, and he had never met the so-called biological father. He probably didn’t even know his existence in this world, and Li Zhenruo also never thought that that person was his father.

       He felt indifferent to the brothers, and the only one who could be regarded as a family was probably Li Jianglin.

       Although in the last days of his life, Li Jianglin gave up on him. However, like Li Zhentai, even if he was betrayed by Li Jianglin, Li Jianglin did not completely give up on him. Li Zhenruo couldn’t help thinking later that if he didn’t die, maybe one day he might come back to Li’s house and continue to be Li Jianglin’s son.

       This was just a delusion, and by now Li Zhenruo had stopped thinking about it.

       He just wanted to see Li Jianglin.

       If Li Jianglin passed away one day, he might not be able to accompany him to the end by his side. Now, while he was still there, he could see him as much as he wanted.

       On the way to the hospital, Li Zhenran did not ask him the question, If you are not Li Zhenruo, why are you going to see Li Jianglin?

       Li Zhenruo thought of a good answer, but it was useless.

       Li Zhenran just asked him, “Are you tired today?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I’m okay. How is your father?”

       Li Zhenran replied, “Old people’s problem, you know how it is. Let’s go and have a look.”

       They drove to the hospital, and Li Zhenruo followed Li Zhenran to the VIP ward where Li Jianglin was.

       As he opened the door, Li Zhenruo found that Zhu Kai was inside.

       Zhu Kai was sitting at the bedside watching Li Jianglin, but when he heard the movement, he turned to look at them. After seeing Li Zhenruo, he was a little surprised, “Why are you here?”

       The Li family hadn’t seen Li Zhenruo for a long time, and when they asked Li Zhenran, he didn’t say anything. Everyone thought they were quarrelling.

       Li Zhenran just said, “He came to see Dad.”

       Zhu Kai then stood up, “Then come and sit, I’ll go out and buy a pack of cigarettes.”

       After that, Zhu Kai walked outside.

       Li Zhenran and Li Zhenruo walked to the hospital bed and sat down.

       Li Jianglin seemed to be asleep, and his breathing was a bit cloudy and heavy.

       “Dad,” Li Zhenran called to him softly.

       As a result, Li Jianglin slowly opened his eyes, looked at him for a while, then looked at Li Zhenruo and said, “You are here.”

       “Mr. Li,” Li Zhenruo called.

       Li Jianglin said, “You don’t need to call me that, just call me Uncle Li.”

       Li Zhenruo did not speak.

       Li Jianglin’s voice was weak, “I thought you and Zhenran had a fight.”

       Li Zhenruo heard the words and smiled lightly, “Yes, I had a fight with him.”

       Li Jianglin sighed, “Life is only a few decades, so young people don’t know how to cherish it. It’s no big deal to let it pass.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Aren’t you against it?”

       Li Jianglin’s eyes were a little cloudy, “If my opposition was useful, I would naturally oppose it to the end. But this son, I don’t even know him well enough myself, and I don’t think my opposition will be useful. Since you must be together, then it’s up to you.”

       “Dad,” Li Zhenran called to him softly.

       Li Jianglin said, “I have done a lot of things before, and now I don’t know if I should regret it, but I know very well that regret is the most useless thing because it’s irredeemable. In this case, before some things reach a dead end, it’s better to turn back as soon as you can.”

       Although he was talking about Li Zhenruo and Li Zhenran, Li Jianglin was more like speaking to his past self.

       At this moment, Li Zhenruo suddenly wondered if he remembered Zhu Yun.

       What happened between him and Zhu Yun back then, and why Zhu Yun gave birth to Zhu Kai with someone else, Li Zhenruo may have a hard time knowing the truth by now. And Li Zhenruo didn’t want to know the truth so much. Sometimes it’s not necessarily a bad thing for parents to maintain the best image in their minds for their children.

       After talking so much, Li Jianglin seemed a little tired. He closed his eyes and only his heavy breathing could be heard inside the quiet ward.

       “Zhenran,” Li Jianglin said suddenly again.

       “Dad?”

       Li Jianglin said, “Take care of yourself and keep an eye on the third child. You both are the only two children I have left.”

       Li Zhenran said, “I will.”

       Li Jianglin added, “Do whatever you want to do, there is no need to wait until you regret it in the future.”

       Li Zhenran heard the words and turned to look at Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenruo said softly, “Uncle Li, have a good rest.”

       Li Jianglin fell asleep, and Li Zhenran sent Li Zhenruo away.

       After coming out of the ward, Li Zhenruo said, “You don’t need to send me off, just stay with him for a while.”

       As soon as he finished speaking, he heard footsteps approaching slowly across the corridor, and turned to see that it was Li Zhenzi.

       They all had jobs during the day and were only slightly free at night after work, so they took this opportunity to spend time with Li Jianglin.

       Li Zhenzi was probably the only person who didn’t know his own relationship with Li Jianglin yet, but it was actually pretty good. At least Li Jianglin had a son who was truly devoted to him.

       When he saw Li Zhenruo, Li Zhenzi’s eyes widened, “Why did you come?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I’m here to visit Mr. Li.”

       Li Zhenzi looked at him, “I heard that you resigned from my second brother and went to Luo Fei’s place?”

       Li Zhenruo took a deep breath and said without haste, “A fine birds choose wood to perch1A talented person is free to choose his own boss, is there a problem?”

       As he heard this, Li Zhenzi raised his hand to bump against Li Zhenran, “Second brother, your little lover said that you are rotten wood.” Then he glanced at Li Zhenran with a meaningful look.

       Li Zhenran let out a laugh, “Whether it’s rotten or not is something he’ll only know after he tries it.”

       Li Zhenruo was not in the mood to tell erotic jokes to the two brothers, so he yawned tiredly again and said, “I’ll go first.”

       Li Zhenran said to him, “I’ll see you off.”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “No need,” he waved his hand, turned and left without looking back.

       Although he didn’t look back, Li Zhenruo still heard Li Zhenzi and Li Zhenran said, “Second brother, if he played hard to get to you like this, are you really going to take the bait?”

       Li Zhenran seemed to laugh without saying a word.

       Li Zhenzi said again, “Don’t be afraid of him, you can also hang him for a few days too.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t hear the latter words, because he had already entered the elevator and watched the elevator door slowly closing. The only thought in Li Zhenruo’s heart was: let’s see if you really dare to do that.

       He knew that Li Zhenran would not dare now.

       On the third day, there was a delay in the company, so the trip to the last warehouse was arranged on the fourth day.

       With the experience of the previous two days, Li Zhenruo and Tian Chong set off early this morning and even they also ate two buns for breakfast in the car.

       After looking at the information about the last warehouse, Li Zhenruo closed his eyes and fell asleep when he saw that they were still far away from the destination.

       Although they started early in the morning, they were stuck on the way out of the city for more than an hour. When they arrived at the destination, it was almost ten o’clock in the morning.

       The head of the warehouse greeted them, asked them if they had breakfast, and invited them to the office to sit down and have two cups of tea first.

       Li Zhenruo refused outright and said, “Let’s just start straight away, otherwise I’m afraid we won’t be able to go back until the inspection is over today.”

       The person in charge had no choice but to take Li Zhenruo and the others to the warehouse and also took out all the prepared materials.

       This warehouse was the largest of the three warehouses because the distance was relatively far. In fact, Li Zhenruo had already prepared that he would not be able to complete the work within a day, and might not be able to go back until tomorrow.

       The person in charge had been with Li Zhenruo all the time. He probably wanted to get close to him, but Li Zhenruo was not very interested and concentrated on checking all the inbound and outbound orders.

       He had the company’s inbound and outbound records in his hand and needed to check them against the ones here to see if there were any discrepancies.

       After lunch, Li Zhenruo felt a little stuffy and really tired, so he came out for a walk.

       He walked around the warehouse and found it strange that there were nine warehouses recorded here, but he only saw eight in total in this area. Where was the last one?

       He came back and asked Tian Chong, “Have you counted all the warehouses?”

       Tian Chong said, “Yes, there are three warehouses left.”

       Li Zhenruo asked him, “I remember that there are nine warehouses in the file, but why are there only eight here?”

       Tian Chong froze, “Aren’t there only eight?”

       He thought about it for a while, went to open the file and said, “Oh, there are really nine.”

       In the afternoon, Li Zhenruo asked the person in charge of the warehouse.

       Hearing the words, the person in charge said: “The ninth warehouse is a little far from here. It is an old warehouse, so the environment is not good and the moisture resistance is not very good. I applied for renovation, and it is empty now.”

       “Empty?” Li Zhenruo asked.

       The person in charge said, “Yes, it’s already fenced off and it’s not convenient to go in, the warehouse is really not up to standard, so it’s out of use for renovation.”

       Li Zhenruo nodded and asked Tian Chong, “Does your warehousing department know?”

       Tian Chong frowned and thought about it, “It seems that this year this side has reported that it needs to be renovated.”

       Li Zhenruo then asked the person in charge, “Has the construction started?”

       The person in charge said, “Not yet. Isn’t it New Year’s Eve soon? The fencing has just been done this month, and the construction will start after the New Year.”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “That’s good.”

       After that, he didn’t ask about the warehouse again, and since the fence was being built in preparation for the construction, he did not let Tian Chong personally go over to see it.

       In the afternoon, Li Zhenruo’s work speed slowed down a bit.

       Tian Chong finished his work and came back to him to help him.

       Li Zhenruo said, “It’s okay, I’m sure I won’t be able to finish today, let’s continue tomorrow.”

       Tian Chong was a little surprised, “Are you going here again tomorrow?”

       Li Zhenruo thought for a while, “Instead of wasting time on the road, why not stay over here today?”

       “Stay over…” Tian Chong’s tone was obviously unhappy.

       The person in charge of the warehouse was enthusiastic to keep them, “Then stay here, I will immediately ask someone to book a hotel downtown, and let’s have dinner there. I know a restaurant that cooked cold-water fish very well.”

       Li Zhenruo looked up at him, smiled and said, “No need to be so polite, it’s a waste of time to go downtown. Find a room for us here tonight.”

       “Huh?” This time Tian Chong was completely dumbfounded, “Here?”

       There were usually people on duty in the warehouse here. Of course, it was not impossible to find a bed to sleep in, but the conditions must be terrible. Tian Chong was not a rich young master, but he was a big city office worker. He followed to conduct random warehouse department inspections, and this time the warehouse couldn’t take good care of them. And today he didn’t know what the assistant want to do, unexpectedly asked to stay in the warehouse.

       The person in charge was obviously a little stunned. He quickly said, “There is no one here, the conditions are too poor, and the weather has been cold these two days. You should be careful or you’ll freeze at night, so let’s go to the hotel.”

       Tian Chong then whispered, “Yes.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “It doesn’t matter, just stay here and buy two thick quilts while it’s still early. I’m really tired today, and I don’t even want to take the car.”

       The person in charge was still embarrassed and looked toward Tian Chong.

       Tian Chong didn’t want to stay here very much, but he couldn’t speak out against Li Zhenruo directly, so he could only whisper to the person in charge to see if he could persuade Li Zhenruo again.

       As a result, Tian Chong still failed to persuade Li Zhenruo and had to stay in the warehouse at night.

       The person in charge could only pack a room for the small office building on the third floor and built two steel wire beds. The bedding was brand new, clean and soft.

       Li Zhenruo refused to go to the city to eat dinner, so the person in charge asked someone to make some and went to buy a few dishes back. They made a banquet directly at the side of the warehouse. The food wasn’t great, but the wine was good.

       The person in charge personally accompanied him and planned to stay here at night.

       Li Zhenruo did not want to drink, he excused himself from all of them on the pretext that he was allergic to alcohol, but later on, he could not avoid it, so he drank a glass and pretended to be drunk, and directly fell on the table.

       As a result, Tian Chong dealt with the people in the warehouse by himself. He was drunk, and after being sent to the room, he lay on the bed directly.

       After simply washing his face with hot water, Li Zhenruo was lying on the bed, when he heard Tian Chong beside him mumbling.

       Tian Chong was probably also delirious, and he kept complaining that he couldn’t stand this place, the environment was too bad.

       Li Zhenruo smiled when he heard the words, and lay on the bed with his clothes closed and his eyes closed.

       There were still people coming and going outside, someone was talking in a low voice, and a headlight shone down from the third floor. Even if the light was not turned on in this room, it was still bright.

       Li Zhenruo always felt that there was something wrong with the last warehouse.

       According to the person in charge, they reported to the company two months ago to apply for funds to repair. Last month, the company approved the funds in place, and this month began to build the fence and there did not seem to be any problems.

       But Li Zhenruo remembered clearly that in May, a batch of goods was originally sent to the warehouse here, but it was sent to the other warehouse because the inventory capacity was insufficient. However, since May, there has been no record of inbound and outbound shipments from that warehouse.

       Did the warehouse have a problem long ago and the person in charge never reported it so it was left idle, or was the warehouse being used for something else that they didn’t want the company to know about?

       If it were the old Li Zhenruo, he would definitely report the situation here directly to Luo Fei and let Luo Fei handle it at his own discretion.

       But now he felt that he was perfectly capable of checking out the warehouse first, and so when he handed in this report to Luo Fei, it would be really beautiful.

       It was still early, so Li Zhenruo covered himself with the blanket and planned to sleep until four or five o’clock in the morning when people were most soundly asleep and most unprepared.

       In the end, Li Zhenruo himself did not expect that something happened before he slept in the middle of the night.

       This small building in the warehouse had three floors. He didn’t know where the accident happened. In the middle of the night, Li Zhenruo heard a commotion outside, and there was a burning smell in the air. Someone shouted from outside, “Fire!”

       The small building was built in a rudimentary manner. It was originally a temporary structure and had been used since then. The materials were flammable, and the fire control was not enough. He didn’t know where the flames came from. The wind was strong in the suburbs, and it suddenly burst into flames at once.

       Li Zhenruo was not afraid of fire, but Tian Chong still sleeping in the room.

       He lifted the quilt and got up, walked to Tian Chong’s bed and patted his face, “Get up! It’s on fire!”

       Tian Chong had been drinking and was completely asleep, snoring loudly. When Li Zhenruo covered his face, he barely managed to silence his snoring, but as soon as he removed his hand, he started snoring again.

       The fire didn’t seem to be under control, and the people outside began to shout: “It’s on fire! Get up!” Among them, Li Zhenruo also heard voices interspersed with those calling his and Tian Chong’s names.

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t bear it anymore, and slapped Tian Chong in the face, “There’s a fire! Do you want to die?”

       Tian Chong finally opened his eyes, but he was still in a trance, “What’s wrong?”

       Li Zhenruo had no choice but to drag him out of the bed and ran out with his arms on his shoulders.

       Tian Chong was taller than him, and it was very difficult for Li Zhenruo to walk with him. Fortunately, he was strong enough to drag such a big man down from the third floor.

       At this time, Tian Chong gradually came to his senses, and when the cold wind blew on his face, he looked at the firelight reflected in his eyes, and his voice trembled, “A fire?”

       Li Zhenruo said angrily, “Yeah, are you going to die in it? Idiot!”

       After dragging Tian Chong out of the small building, Li Zhenruo looked back and saw that the fire was even more vigorous.

       The person in charge was desperately calling for people to put out the fire. There were warehouses nearby. If the fire was too big and set the nearby warehouses on fire, it would be really bad.

       However, Li Zhenruo remembered another thing. All their documents were still left in the room just now. So he threw Tian Chong to the ground, and Li Zhenruo turned around to go upstairs again.

       Tian Chong was so frightened that he sobered up from all the alcohol in his body. He grabbed Li Zhenruo’s hand and said, “Are you crazy? Why are you going back?”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t bother to talk to him and kicked him in the shoulder to drive him away, then turned and ran upstairs.

       Tian Chong covered his shoulders, and the whole person was stunned.

       The fire in the small building was getting bigger and bigger, but fortunately, it had not spread.

       All staff guarding the warehouse were dispatched to put out the fire with high-pressure water cannons and fire extinguishers.

       Despite this, after Li Zhenruo returned to the room to pack up the documents and put them in the handbag, the fire spread outside the door.

       Li Zhenruo had no choice but to go to the window and shout to Tian Chong, “Catch it!”

       Tian Chong hurried up to catch the handbag that Li Zhenruo had thrown down and then crawled away hurriedly because of the heat. He shouted to the upstairs, “Come down quickly!”

       Li Zhenruo stepped back from the window without hurrying, turned into a cat shape from an angle that could not be seen outside, and quickly slipped out of the window.

       Just when he jumped out of the small building, the fire was temporarily suppressed. When he saw that the fire was getting weaker and weaker, Li Zhenruo turned and ran towards the low hillside there.

       He had seen the geographic map of this warehouse. Behind this hillside was the last warehouse. Now people were gathered to put off the fire, and Li Zhenruo planned to take this opportunity to go and have a look.

       Not long after he ran to the hillside, he suddenly heard a loud noise behind him. He quickly stopped and looked back. He found that the small building where the fire had slowed down had become ablaze again, and it was very likely that something like a gas tank had exploded.

       After a little hesitation, Li Zhenruo still followed the established route.

       At this time, Tian Chong was completely dumbfounded, because he had never seen Li Zhenruo come out from inside, and thought that Li Zhenruo was still inside.

       The impact of the explosion forced them to withdraw a long way, and then they hastily picked up the fire-fighting equipment and went back to fight the fire.

       Fortunately, there was still some distance to the surrounding warehouses, and there were no other combustibles materials nearby. If the small building continued to burn like this, even if it burned to ashes, it should not have affected the nearby warehouses.

       But even so, everyone was desperately trying to put out the fire.

       Tian Chong stood alone with his briefcase in his arms. He had never seen this kind of battle. More importantly, it seemed that something had happened to Assistant Li, and if Assistant Li hadn’t saved him, he could have run out with the papers long ago.

       “Ah—” Tian Chong let out a miserable scream.

       When he screamed, Li Zhenruo was still running all the way. The distance of the warehouse was indeed a bit far. It took him about ten minutes to run all the way, and when he arrived near the warehouse, he found that it had indeed been fenced off.

       Jumping on the low wall, Li Zhenruo looked up in the dark. The door of the warehouse was a steel door, which could not be opened without a key if it was tightly closed. There were walls on all sides, and only a high place had an exhaust fan window for ventilation.

       Li Zhenruo glanced at the duty room in the corner of the warehouse, where the lights were on, and someone was standing at the door looking towards the small building that was on fire but had no intention of going there.

       Since it was an empty warehouse, why did they have to arrange for someone to be on duty, and why did the person not go to help even if he knew that the building was on fire?

       Li Zhenruo was more certain that there must be something in this warehouse.

       He took a deep breath and jumped up towards the wall, using his claws to climb up the wall in a single leap. Fortunately, the walls of the warehouse were still made of cement instead of metal. So Li Zhenruo used his claws to grip them firmly and followed the method Xia Hongshen had taught him to mobilise his whole body’s spiritual energy and climbed up to the exhaust fan vent at the top in one fell swoop without stopping.

       The exhaust fan was not turned on at this time, so Li Zhenruo used his claws to bend one of the fan blades and got in without any problems.

       Li Zhenruo stood at the window and looked in, and saw that the warehouse was not empty, but there were many large plastic buckets, and there was an unspeakable smell in the air.

       He climbed on the wall and slid down. Li Zhenruo jumped on a plastic bucket and opened the lid, and saw that it was filled with liquid, and the smell was pungent. It should be some poisonous liquid.

       Li Zhenruo jumped off the edge of the bucket, and he jumped onto another plastic bucket, and when he opened it, it was still the same thing.

       He opened more than a dozen barrels, which were basically liquid and semi-crystalline, emitting the same strong, pungent smell.

       There were so many stored in this warehouse, which add up to at least ten tons. It should be that the person in charge of the warehouse had privately collected money from others to store it for others, and the company had no records at all. This warehouse was also not certified to store toxic and chemical substances.

       No wonder it was covered up for fear of them coming to investigate, and the warehouse was fenced off on the pretext of renovation before a routine inspection at the end of the year. There was a fire in the small building over there, and the person in charge of the warehouse must be very nervous. If the fire could not be put out and spread to the warehouse, he might not be able to cover up the things he stored here.

       Li Zhenruo knew everything he wanted to know, and he didn’t plan to interfere with the rest. Meanwhile, he would report it to Luo Fei and let Luo Fei handle it.

       He went back out through the small window he had just tumbled through and leaned over the window to look towards the small building over there.

       If he had been standing below, he would not have been able to see anything across the short hill, but from here he could see clearly that there were no more flames, and he guessed that the fire had been put down.

       But doing the math, it had been almost an hour since he had run this way, and although there had been an explosion, with adequate fire-fighting equipment, the fire in the small building should have been extinguished.

       He walked over there in a hurry, but he didn’t expect that Tian Chong had long thought that he had died in the explosion.

       When Li Zhenruo walked to the side of the small building, he saw that the whole building was dark and the open flame had disappeared, but everyone still dared not stop and was still spraying water into the building with a high-pressure water gun.

       Tian Chong sat on the ground with his briefcase in his arms and almost cried out in grief.

       Only then did Li Zhenruo realize that Tian Chong never saw him come out, probably thought he was dead. This misunderstanding became a big one, and Li Zhenruo turned around and planned to find a place where no one was around to change back into a human form.

       Unexpectedly, the two cars stopped in front of the small building one after the other, and the brakes rubbed against the ground, making a loud noise.

       It was Luo Fei who opened the door of the car in front, but Li Zhenran got in and out of the car behind.

       Li Zhenruo was stunned and stopped.

       Luo Fei hurried forward and asked Tian Chong, “Where’s Jason?”

       Tian Chong cried and looked towards the small building, “He went back to get the documents, and then the gas tank exploded.”

       Luo Fei didn’t have time to react when he heard the words, and Li Zhenran had already run past him towards the stairs.

       “You come back!” Luo Fei felt keen, “He is not dead!”

       Li Zhenran said, “I know, I’m just going to make sure.”

       The open fire in the building was extinguished, but the temperature inside was still very high, and there was no telling which corner of the unseen spark would reignite. Li Zhenran ran inside without hesitation. Just as his front foot went up the stairs, a floorboard of the building at the back fell off, nearly hitting him on the head.

       Li Zhenruo only felt that his heart almost jumped out at that moment, and there was no time to have any thoughts, and his body had already rushed out on its own.

       He was faster than Li Zhenran, and when he reached Li Zhenran’s feet, the other party had just finished a flight of stairs.

       Li Zhenruo climbed his legs and ran directly into his arms, and was hugged by him.

       Seeing the cat rushing into his arms, Li Zhenran immediately understood, turned and ran downstairs.

       As a result, when they went down two flights of stairs, another board fell off.

       Li Zhenruo subconsciously wanted to climb on top of Li Zhenran’s head to help him block, but Li Zhenran held him firmly in his arms and completely protected him.

       In the blink of an eye, the board fell but didn’t hit them, and fell to the side. Outside, Luo Fei stood in front of the stairs and said loudly, “Don’t come out yet!”

       Li Zhenruo thought that Li Zhenran would definitely not be able to escape.

       Only then did he realize that there was a very powerful demon out there and Luo Fei would not just watch anything happen to them.

       Li Zhenran hugged Li Zhenruo, his footsteps were fast and steady. He left the two-story building but still held him tightly in his arms and refused to let go at all.

       Li Zhenruo stretched his body with difficulty, put his paws on his chest, stretched out his tongue and licked Li Zhenran’s lower jaw, then saw the black marks on his face and licked his face again, trying to lick the marks clean.

       Li Zhenran gently stroked the top of Li Zhenruo’s head and said, “It’s alright.”

       Li Zhenruo felt that his tone was full of fear, and this sentence was probably comforting himself, not Li Zhenruo.

       Tian Chong lay on the ground and began to cry, “I’m sorry, he was trying to save me!”

       Luo Fei looked at him, “He’s not dead, don’t cry.”

       Xu Shengwen, who came with Luo Fei, began to hurriedly handle the follow-up work.

       As soon as they received Tian Chong’s call, they hurried over. Normally, it would take more than two hours to drive, but it was squeezed to one hour. However, Li Zhenran still felt that he was late.

       If it was true that Li Zhenruo had not come out as Tian Chong had said, then nothing could be undone if he came over now.

       Luo Fei saw that Li Zhenran had been staring at the cat in his arms, touched the top of the cat’s head repeatedly, and the kitten had been licking Li Zhenran’s face to comfort him, so he said, “You guys first get in the car and have a rest.”

       Li Zhenran nodded and hugged Li Zhenruo into the car.

       The driver was not in the car at this time. He got out and went to watch the action.

       As soon as Li Zhenruo got in the car, he changed back into a human form. He reached out and hugged Li Zhenran, “I’m fine.”

       Li Zhenran didn’t speak, just hugged him tightly, buried his face in his shoulder, and breathed deeply and slowly.

       Li Zhenruo suddenly remembered that time on the rooftop, he deliberately lied to Li Zhenran, making Li Zhenran think he was reincarnated. At that time, he wondered if Li Zhenran would jump down from upstairs and follow him, but Li Zhenran did nothing.

       When he thought about it now, Li Zhenruo found that he was really stupid. If Li Zhenran jumped off at that time, he would probably live in pain forever and couldn’t extricate himself. Even if he were to die one day, he hoped that Li Zhenran would be able to live happily and find someone he could love and fall in love again.

       Li Zhenruo felt a bit emotional. When the floor fell just now, he really thought Li Zhenran would be smashed to death there.

       Compared with the dread of death, living apart was probably a waste of one’s life.

       He wanted proof, and if Li Zhenran couldn’t prove it with his life, what better proof could there be in this world?

       There would be a day when Li Zhenran could prove that he will love him all his life and that he would be willing to throw away his life, but Li Zhenruo would probably be left with nothing but remorse.

       Li Zhenruo said in Li Zhenran’s ear at this time, “I forgive you.”

       Li Zhenran suddenly raised his head.

       Li Zhenruo felt that there seemed to be some wet marks on his shoulders, but when he wanted to look down, Li Zhenran squeezed his chin and kissed his lips heavily.

       He didn’t have the strength to resist at all, and Li Zhenran had already overwhelmed him in the back seat of the car. The hot kiss was about to drown him in an instant.

       Li Zhenruo fell on his back and suddenly found a person standing outside the car window.

       He looked back and up and saw Tian Chong standing outside, looking at them with a terrified expression.

       So he quickly patted Li Zhenran’s shoulder.

       Li Zhenran looked up but did not stop kissing him. Instead, he pulled away Li Zhenruo’s clothes and put a hand in.

       When doing this action, Tian Chong found that Li Zhenran was staring at him fiercely, and then he was wholly startled for a while, and then he quickly turned to avoid them.

       Only then did Li Zhenran’s movements become gentle, and the frenzied kisses turned into light kisses one after another, and the atmosphere became warmer.

       When Luo Fei came over, Li Zhenruo got up and pulled up his clothes and said to him, “I found something. There is a warehouse here that was misappropriated by the person in charge to store poisoned items. I suggest you call the police.”

       Luo Fei heard the words with a solemn expression and nodded, “I will handle it.”

       After speaking, Luo Fei turned his head and looked at the chaotic environment around him. He said to Li Zhenran, “Thank you for your hard work. I will handle the finishing work here. Let the driver take you to the city to open a room and have a good rest. Let’s talk about it tomorrow.”

       Li Zhenran replied, “Okay.”

       Luo Fei patted the door and said to Li Zhenruo, “Good job.”

       Li Zhenruo gave him a thumbs up and smiled.

       As Luo Fei walked away, he called Li Zhenran’s driver to come and drive.

       Originally Luo Fei meant to go to the nearest urban area to rest, but Li Zhenran asked the driver to drive directly home.

       After going through so many things in one night, Li Zhenruo’s mind was still very awake, and there was no sleepiness at all, while Li Zhenran was relaxed after being so tense that he fell asleep on Li Zhenruo’s lap soon after the car had been driven.

       Li Zhenruo had been stroking his hair gently and looked out of the car window.

       When they came, they were rushing all the way. On the way back, the driver drove a lot more slowly. When they returned to the city, the driver asked Li Zhenruo softly where he was going.

       Li Zhenruo said, “To his apartment.”

       At this time, it was inconvenient to go back to Li’s house and woke up Wang Ma and the others.

       Before they know it, the sky in the east had turned white.

       When the driver drove downstairs to the apartment, the first rays of the sun shone through the front window of the car in the morning, and the winter sun fell gently on them with an almost imperceptible warmth.

       When Li Zhenruo lowered his head, his hair was plated with a soft golden colour by the sun. He kissed Li Zhenran’s forehead and said, “We’re home, let’s go back.”


The author has something to say:

The story is over, I’ve spent all day today on this and I’m almost dead. I used to be foolish enough to think that all readers would like to see me keep writing and don’t stop, even if it’s a little slower, it doesn’t matter, but only yesterday did I find out that there are readers who are just waiting to see an ending.

So I did what I promised yesterday, and there will be a silly and sweet episode next, but I won’t guarantee daily updates (I never do!). I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do that, but I’ll keep it light anyway. Unknowingly, it has been serialized for three months. I wish you all a happy life^_^

Chapter 92

       In fact, up until now, Li Zhenruo had always felt that the Li Zhenran he used to know was the real Li Zhenran.

       There was some indifference, some carelessness.

       Of course, Li Zhenran could be gentle and enthusiastic, but that was just what he wanted to show him. Perhaps behind his gentleness and enthusiasm, he had been observing his every move with a calm attitude.

       However, he was willing to be gentle and warm to him, which also shows that he thought of him in his heart, and was not afraid to change and disguise himself to cater to his want.

       After he pulled himself away from the frenzy of love, Li Zhenruo found that he was getting to know Li Zhenran better and better as a person.

       He couldn’t control Li Zhenran, and of course, he certainly didn’t have to. However, he didn’t think he should be easily controlled by Li Zhenran, and that they should love each other with mutual respect.

       Well, Li Zhenran had already noticed his way of thinking, so Li Zhenran would give him the respect he wanted.

       But Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but wonder, if everything was just a play acted by Li Zhenran, could Li Zhenran’s love for him and this play lasted a lifetime? What if one day he stopped loving him?

       As he thought of this, Li Zhenruo began to scorn himself. Forget it, it didn’t matter if he didn’t love him. Who can’t live without whom? If Li Zhenran didn’t love him anymore, he would just leave and follow his master to cultivate into an immortal. There were countless beautiful men and women to eat and drink with, who needs him?

       It was just that Li Zhenruo didn’t take into account that his master had become an immortal, yet he was still squatting in the dilapidated school dormitory, eating cheap cat food and canned cat food every day and drooling over his goodies.

       When he arrived at the company, Xu Shengwen, who was sitting across from the office, gave him a wink and smiled meaningfully.

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t figure out what his wink meant, so he remained silent and did not respond.

       After Luo Fei came, he called Li Zhenruo into the office and asked him, “How did it go last night? The tail didn’t show, did it?”

       Li Zhenruo always felt that Luo Fei’s tone had a bit of ridicule in it. He said, “No, thank you boss for your concern.”

       “Well,” Luo Fei tapped his fingers on the table, “You know, Second Young Master Li is our big customer, and there will be a lot of business dealings in the future. Since he thinks highly of you, you can be considered to be in charge of welcoming him in the future.”

       Li Zhenruo looked at Luo Fei, and suddenly got closer across his large desk, “Boss, your tail is falling out.”

       Luo Fei leaned back on the office chair, and a smile slowly spread from the corner of his mouth, “My tail, do you know what it is?”

       “What is it?” Li Zhenruo asked curiously.

       Luo Fei smiled and told him, “My tail is very cute, I won’t show it to you.”

       Li Zhenruo’s eyes widened.

       Luo Fei reached out and picked up a stack of documents on the table, “Since you are so curious and energetic, I will hand you an important task. Here are the three warehouses located in this city. Inspect them all within this week and submit a report to me with specific warehouse problems and corrective measures. Have Shengwen arrange a driver for you, and someone from the warehousing department will accompany you. Any questions?”

       Li Zhenruo heard the words, got up and took the information in Luo Fei’s hand, and replied, “No problem.”

       Luo Fei said, “What I want is not a walk-through inspection, but a serious inspection and report. Do you understand?”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “Understood.”

       Luo Fei then waved his hand, “Get out.”

       Li Zhenruo turned around and walked to the door, stopped halfway, turned around and asked Luo Fei, “Boss, are you a rabbit?”

       Isn’t a rabbit’s tail cute?

       When he heard this, Luo Fei a little inscrutably at his words.

       Li Zhenruo asked again, “When you and xiao Feng got into the car, did you intentionally show your tail for him to pinch?”

       Luo Fei spoke slowly this time, smiled and replied to him, “f/ck off.”

       Xu Shengwen called Li Zhenruo and arranged a driver for him, and the staff from the warehouse department who were responsible for contacting and accompanying him were also in place.

       Li Zhenruo went to the parking lot with the documents, and when he walked to the car arranged by the company, he saw a tall young man standing in front of the car door.

       The man was still holding a stack of documents in his hand, and when he looked up at Li Zhenruo, all the documents slid to the ground at once, and he squatted down to pick them up clumsily.

       Li Zhenruo walked over to help him pick it up and then handed it to him.

       The man stretched out his hand, “Hello Assistant Li, I’m Tian Chong1田冲 from the Warehouse Department.”

       Li Zhenruo took his hand and repeated, “Padding2Padding is also Tian Chong(填充)?”

       Tian Chong explained a little embarrassedly, “Tian of the pastoral sky3Tian Yuan, and Chong of rushing forward Linghu4Linghu Chong.”

       Li Zhenruo smiled, “Hello, just call me Jason.”

       Tian Chong also smiled.

       The two got into the car and sat side by side in the back seat to sort out their trip these days.

       If things went well, it would take about a day for them to complete one of the warehouse inspections. The first two were on the outskirts of the city, and it was only a one to two hours drive. Because those were not in the same direction, they didn’t plan to finish the inspection in one day.

       The last one was a little further away, but it was also in this city, and it takes less than three hours from the time they went out of town, so he planned to leave it for the last day.

       Li Zhenruo said to Tian Chong, “You are more expert in this area, so when the time comes, I may need to ask you for advice on many things.”

       Tian Chong hurriedly said, “Assistant Li is too modest.”

       Li Zhenruo smiled.

       Then both fell silent.

       This Tian Chong didn’t look like he was in his thirties. Li Zhenruo didn’t know how he usually worked, but now he seemed to be a little sloppy.

       As they arrived at the warehouse in the morning, they began to inspect item by item according to the inspection clause.

       The warehouse had received a notification long ago, and the person in charge had prepared the materials in a neat manner and put the inbound and outbound orders as well as the relevant systems and procedures placed together in front of Li Zhenruo.

       Tian Chong went with the administrator to check the storage of the goods and whether the fireproof and waterproof measures in the warehouse were in place.

       It was the first time that Luo Fei handed over important work to Li Zhenruo. Of course, Li Zhenruo would not do it perfunctorily and would really check carefully everything one by one, causing the person in charge of the warehouse to sweat on his forehead.

       The workload was larger than Li Zhenruo expected. By noon, they had only finished half of the inspection. The warehouse manager asked them if they would like to go to a nearby restaurant for lunch, but Li Zhenruo refused.

       Li Zhenruo said, “Let’s eat a boxed lunch, it’s a waste of time to eat outside.”

       The person in charge still wanted to invite them, but when he saw Li Zhenruo’s firm attitude, he could only arrange a lunch box for them.

       While they ate, Li Zhenruo’s cell phone rang. He saw that it was Li Zhenran who was calling, so he walked to the corner with the lunch box to answer the phone.

       “What?” Li Zhenruo asked.

       Li Zhenran asked him, “Did you eat properly?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “What do you think?”

       Li Zhenran said, “I heard that Luo Fei had you work in the field.”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “Well, to inspect the warehouse at the end of the year.”

       Li Zhenran said to him, “Keep yourself warm and eat on time.”

       Li Zhenruo was silent for a while and said to him, “Why are you so considerate?”

       Li Zhenran said “hmm”, as if he didn’t understand what he meant.

       Li Zhenruo said, “You are not that considerate, so why do you have to pretend to be so considerate?”

       When he heard this, Li Zhenran responded, “This is quite interesting, what kind of person do you think I am?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Cold-blooded.”

       “Am I cold-blooded?”

       “At least not as gentle and warm as you have shown.”

       Li Zhenran laughed, “That’s because I want to be gentle and warm with you, is there a problem with that?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I’m not Li Zhenruo, you’ve got the wrong person.”

       After he said that, he hung up the phone. He found that he couldn’t answer Li Zhenran’s questions well, and whatever doubts he had, Li Zhenran was able to defuse them in the end and he became speechless.

       In fact, he was not Li Zhenran’s opponent from beginning to end. He was still too naive. In the past, he thought that the Li family would be his possession in the end.

       He was the mantis that stalked the cicada and was unaware of the oriole bird behind5to pursue a narrow gain while neglecting a greater danger. The bird let the mantis jump and planned to wait for it to jump high enough to move its head to peck and eat the mantis.

       After he hung up the phone, Li Zhenruo ate the lunch box. He then threw the empty lunch box into the trash can, turned and walked towards the warehouse.

       Tian Chong was sitting on the chair with his back to him. At this time, he was holding a lunch box in one hand and was calling someone with a mobile phone in the other hand.

       Li Zhenruo heard him say, “It’s the new assistant to the big boss. He looks like a college student and looks like a freshman.”

       …

       “Well, the new officer takes office, and the inspection is very strict. I can’t interfere at the side, and it’s just a routine inspection at the end of the year.”

       …

       “I wonder what the relationship with the boss is, so delicate looking, could he be a little white face6gigolo? Hehe.”

       Li Zhenruo felt a little funny, he walked behind Tian Chong, bent down in his ear and asked, “Am I that delicate? Would you like to touch?”

       Tian Chong was startled and turned around as his phone slipped out of his ear.

       Li Zhenruo caught it, opened the pocket of Tian Chong’s down jacket, put it in, and said, “Let’s continue to work after eating, okay?”

       Tian Chong nodded blankly, “Okay.”

       After spending a day in this warehouse, it was already dark when they returned.

       The driver pulled into the underground parking lot.

       Li Zhenruo and Tian Chong packed up and got off the car, and entered the elevator together.

       Li Zhenruo pressed the top floor, while Tian Chong pressed the first floor.

       “Not going up?” Li Zhenruo asked.

       Tian Chong said, “I’m not going up at this late hour, it’s the same material tomorrow anyway, I’m going straight back.”

       Li Zhenruo smiled and said, “Alright.”

       Tian Chong then asked, “Assistant Li still wants to go back to the office?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “The boss is waiting for me to go back to report on the situation, and he is paying more attention to this inspection than you think.”

       Tian Chong was stunned for a while. As he saw that the elevator had opened to the first floor, he then reached out and closed the door and pressed the floor of the storage department.

       “Not going back?” Li Zhenruo asked strangely.

       Tian Chong said, “I just remembered something, I’d better go back to the office first to sort out today’s materials.”

       Li Zhenruo smiled, “That’s fine.”

       He went back to the office, but in fact, Luo Fei didn’t stay and wait for him. He was probably on a date with Feng Junyuan.

       Li Zhenruo sorted the documents by himself, went to the bathroom to look in the mirror, and found that the corners of his brows and eyes were a little tired. In fact, he also worked overtime before, but at that time he was the one who was sitting in the office making decisions. Li Jianglin always agreed with many of his views and would arrange for the people below him to implement them.

       In the days when he was still in Yunlin, Li Jianglin always sat in the first position. As long as Li Jianglin agreed with his opinion, the people below him would not come out to oppose it. So it was different from later when Li Zhenran was in charge of Yunlin alone.

       Li Zhenran probably worked much harder than him.

       After he packed up, Li Zhenruo encountered Tian Chong coming out of another elevator when he took the elevator to the first floor. The two of them greeted one another and walked outside together.

       The heater was on in the company building, and as soon as he walked out of the door, a chill hit his face, and Li Zhenruo subconsciously closed his collar.

       At this time, he saw a car parked in front of him, and Li Zhenran was standing by the door and looking in his direction.

       Li Zhenruo paused, walked in the direction of Li Zhenran, and asked, “Why are you here?”

       Li Zhenran said, “I’m waiting for you to have dinner.”

       Li Zhenruo asked him, “How do you know I haven’t left yet?” He subconsciously wanted to take a look at his phone, suspecting that Li Zhenran had tracked him.

       Li Zhenran said, “I didn’t track you. I called Luo Fei. He said that the driver just sent you back to the company.”

       Next to him, Tian Chong looked at the car behind Li Zhenran and then at Li Zhenran, not recognizing who it was, he said to Li Zhenruo, “You have friends coming? I’ll go first then.”

       Li Zhenruo nodded, “See you tomorrow.”

       Tian Chong waved his hand and turned away.

       Li Zhenran looked at his tall back and asked, “Who?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Company colleagues.”

       “He looks very handsome,” Li Zhenran said.

       Li Zhenruo heard the words and said to him, “Do you like him? Would you like to introduce him to you?”

       Li Zhenran said, “Unfortunately, he’s not my type.”

       Li Zhenran asked the driver to drive the car away first and accompanied Li Zhenruo for a walk back slowly.

       The two walked side by side, occasionally the back of their hands touched, and Li Zhenruo noticed that Li Zhenran’s hands were cold.

       He couldn’t help but ask, “Have you been standing outside for a long time?”

       Li Zhenran said, “Not long.”

       Li Zhenruo wanted to say that his hands were cold, but after he thought about it, he didn’t say it.

       At this time, Li Zhenran suddenly grabbed his hand, Li Zhenruo wanted to break away subconsciously, but Li Zhenran held his hand and put it in his jacket pocket.

       The pocket was very warm, with the heat of Li Zhenran’s body.

       Li Zhenruo broke free and failed to break free, and said, “Others will think we are perverted.”

       Li Zhenran said, “It doesn’t matter to me what others think.”

       Dinner was eaten in a small restaurant next to Li Zhenruo’s residence.

       Inside the restaurant, the glass doors were closed and the smell of food and warm heat filled the room. Two people sat by the window, drinking mutton soup and eating steamed vegetables.

       After dinner, Li Zhenran asked him, “Want to watch a movie?”

       Li Zhenruo looked at him, “Who wants to watch a movie with you!”

       Li Zhenran seemed a little distressed, “Then what should I invite you to do?”

       “Nothing,” Li Zhenruo called the boss to settle the bill, “I need to go back to organize the materials and start writing the report.”

       Li Zhenran said, “Luo Fei is really mean.”

       Speaking of Luo Fei, Li Zhenruo suddenly thought of one thing. He approached Li Zhenran and asked in a low voice, “Do you know what Luo Fei is?”

       “What is Luo Fei?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Luo Fei is not a human, do you know?”

       Li Zhenran frowned slightly, “Then what is he?”

       Li Zhenruo said mysteriously, “I suspect he is a rabbit.”

       Li Zhenran looked at him suspiciously.

       Li Zhenruo said, “He said that his tail is very cute.”

       When he heard this, Li Zhenran’s expression suddenly became meaningful.

       Li Zhenruo said with a smile, “I know what you’re thinking.”

       Li Zhenran suddenly reached out and grabbed his hand, “You really know me well.”

       Li Zhenruo pulled his hand back, “Who has time to understand you.”

       After he paid the bill, he pushed open the door of the restaurant and went out. There was another cold wind outside.

       Li Zhenran accompanied Li Zhenruo to the place where he lived and sent him to the front of the house. When he saw Li Zhenruo open the door, Li Zhenran asked him, “Aren’t you going to invite me over to sit?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I said I had to write a report.”

       Li Zhenran lowered his head and thought for a while.

       “What?” Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but ask him.

       Li Zhenran said, “It’s nothing, can’t you see that I’m courting you?”

       Li Zhenruo laughed out loud at once, “Do you want to play a young boy or girl who is at the beginning of love?”

       Li Zhenran wasn’t angry, he said, “Isn’t the process of courting just to make you feel my love for you? Dinner, a movie, shopping, what else do you think? I can do it all for you.”

       Li Zhenruo leaned back against the door, “You’ve moved on so quickly? You don’t want Li Zhenruo anymore?”

       Li Zhenran stretched out his hand and pinched his earlobe, then leaned closer to his ear and said, “I have never moved on, from beginning to end I have only loved you, only you, I am yours, body and soul.”

       After he stood up straight, Li Zhenran found that Li Zhenruo’s ears had turned red.

       Li Zhenruo was a little dazed and had not recovered from the shock of Li Zhenran’s affectionate confession just now.

       Li Zhenran said, “I’m leaving, take your time with your work and take care of your health.”

       At night, Li Zhenruo was wrapped in a quilt and used a laptop to write a report, but the inside of his head was a little messy.

       After he was wrapped up for a while, he felt a little hot. He raised his hand and touched his face, and found that his cheeks were hot. After he stopped to think for a while, Li Zhenruo felt that it might be because of the bowl of mutton soup that night that he was feeling hot now.

       But he had been single for a long time, so even if he was hot to death, no one would come to relieve him.

       Li Zhenruo wondered idly, should he keep Li Zhenran? Anyway, he himself no longer had integrity. As he thought of this, he immediately rejected it again in his head. He had long since picked up the integrity, and sex without love was something he did not need at all.

       But actually, there was still love for Li Zhenran. Perhaps it would be best if he could sleep with him, open his eyes, get up, and get dressed without looking back and talk to him in a cold tone, “You can go now.”

       Or to just leave, threw two hundred dollars on the bedside table, and told him, “That’s all you’re worth.”

       While thinking about it, Li Zhenruo found himself even more parched and had better have no choice but to put his hand inside the quilt.

       He kept his hands outside, it was extremely cold at this time, and when he touched them, Li Zhenruo couldn’t help shivering from head to toe, and then sighed.

Chapter 91

       The car was quiet, and neither of them spoke for a while.

       Li Zhenruo felt a little stuffy and couldn’t help opening the car window, but the cold air outside rushed in, causing his throat to hurt a little after he took a quick breath.

       The driver who drove the car did not look sideways, waiting for the red light and lined up in a regular manner, driving in no hurry.

       Li Zhenruo saw the bright red decorations in the shopping mall outside and suddenly realized that it was almost Chinese New Year.

       “Can I ask you a question?” Li Zhenran said suddenly at this moment.

       Li Zhenruo didn’t look back, his forehead almost pressed against the glass, he said, “Go ask.”

       Li Zhenran asked him, “If Zhenruo was still around, how do you think he would accept me again?”

       Li Zhenruo had no way to answer this question. The thing with romance, is if everyone could fall in love and pursue someone regardless of everything, and just leave when they no longer felt love, then why would there be so many sad and tactful love songs, and moving love stories?

       From that day on the rooftop, Li Zhenruo felt that Li Zhenran probably didn’t fully believe what had happened. Today’s verbal test made him more certain of his judgment.

       Since Li Zhenran didn’t believe it anymore, it was pointless for him to work hard to act. All he could do was not compromise so easily. He didn’t want Li Zhenran to think that his deception would be harmless to him in the end and that everything would disappear after a little coaxing, and he didn’t want there to be another deception between them.

       Li Zhenruo said, “If he’s no longer afraid of you lying to him, he’ll probably be able to accept you.”

       When Li Zhenran heard this answer, he was silent for a moment and asked, “If I give Yunlin to him, do you think he will believe me?”

       Li Zhenruo said without hesitation, “He didn’t need it.”

       Li Zhenran sighed, “Then what does he need now?”

       Li Zhenruo did not answer him.

       However, Li Zhenran didn’t need his answer, and continued, “Actually, I know.”

       “You know?”

       Li Zhenran said, “What he needs is respect, a re-establishment of a relationship of mutual trust.”

       Li Zhenruo looked a little dazed, “Re-establish?”

       Li Zhenran smiled at him a little, “Didn’t you say that, he said he loved me. I don’t think we’re really over, I think we’ll have a chance to start over.”

       Li Zhenruo heard the words, lowered his head and said, “Then bless you.”

       Li Zhenran asked the driver to take Li Zhenruo home. When he arrived downstairs in the community, Li Zhenran asked him, “Aren’t you going to invite me up?”

       Li Zhenruo stood in front of the car door and turned to look at him, “It’s too late, I won’t delay your rest. Mr. Li, thank you for taking me home.”

       Li Zhenran stood beside the car door, put one hand above the car door, and waved to him, “Good night, go to bed early.”

       Li Zhenruo turned around and went upstairs. After feeling the blow of the cold wind, he seemed to be sobered a lot. After he returned home and took a bath, Li Zhenruo put the towel on his head and sat on the sofa to read a book.

       In fact, he couldn’t quite get into the book, his head was still a bit dizzy and he was still thinking about Li Zhenran’s matters in his head.

       Before he went to bed, Li Zhenruo went to the window to draw the curtains. When he looked downstairs, he noticed that there was a car parked downstairs, and it was the same car that Li Zhenran had just sent him back in.

       The car hadn’t left yet, and Li Zhenran had not left either. Although he couldn’t see clearly from a distance, Li Zhenruo noticed that a person sitting beside the flower bed was smoking.

       Li Zhenruo was stunned for a moment, then took out his mobile phone and called Li Zhenran.

       The call was quickly connected, and Li Zhenran’s deep voice sounded, “You haven’t slept yet?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “If you don’t go back to sleep, the driver has to sleep too, right?”

       Li Zhenran gently laughed, “I just want to stay closer to you. Alright, I’ll go back now, you rest early.”

       After he said that, Li Zhenran hung up the phone, got up, walked over and got into the car.

       Li Zhenruo stood by the window and kept watching his car leave. He knew that Li Zhenran’s words were deliberately said to him. Li Zhenran was a terrible person. He knew what words were the most touching, but Li Zhenruo couldn’t tell whether it was the truth or not.

       But even if it was a lie, Li Zhenruo had to admit that he was moved.

       Early the next morning, when Li Zhenruo was still sleeping in the cat’s bed, he was woken up by the doorbell. He struggled to get up from the bed and walked slowly to the door before realizing that he was still a cat, so he changed to the form of an adult. He opened the door and asked, “Who is it?”

       The person standing outside the door was Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenruo scratched his head, “What are you doing so early?”

       Li Zhenran raised the bag in his hand, “Breakfast for you.”

       Li Zhenruo frowned at him, “Why did you buy me breakfast?”

       Li Zhenran had walked in, “I told you, this is the body of the person I love the most and don’t want to see him starve and lose weight.”

       Li Zhenruo stood by the door, reached out and rubbed his eyes while closing the door, and said, “Did you eat breakfast on time yourself? You look like you’ve lost weight only recently.”

       Li Zhenran smiled and put breakfast on the dining table, “I eat on time, I lost weight just because I caught a cold some time ago.”

       “Cold?”

       Li Zhenran said: “It was raining outside that day, and then I got a cold when I went back.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t speak and sat down beside the dining table.

       Li Zhenran smiled, “Do you feel sorry?”

       Li Zhenruo yawned, “Why should I feel sorry for you, the person who felt sorry for you is no longer there, and he was so angry with you that he reincarnated.”

       Li Zhenran still smiled, but he said, “I’m sorry.”

       Li Zhenruo did not respond.

       At this time, Li Zhenran turned his head and glanced at the cat bed on the ground next to him. There was still a lot of cat hair in it. He said, “You sleep here?”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t want to admit that he bought a cat bed to sleep in because she was lazy, but silently took out the soy milk and steamed buns, habitually stuck a straw into the soy milk cup, and took a sip.

       Li Zhenran sat across from him and looked at him.

       Li Zhenruo saw that there was something else in his pocket, so he reached out and turned it over, but it turned out that there was a can of fish inside, and it was the brand he used to love.

       “I brought it from home,” Li Zhenran said, “Zhenruo liked to eat it before.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t want to be so polite to him, so he brought the can over and said, “Thank you.”

       Li Zhenran looked at the whole room and asked, “No toilet?”

       Li Zhenruo looked up, “It’s inside.”

       Li Zhenran said, “I said cat toilet.”

       Li Zhenruo bit the bun in his mouth and gave him a cold look, “I don’t need that.”

       Li Zhenran said, “Isn’t it inconvenient to go to the toilet in the middle of the night?”

       Li Zhenruo was too lazy to answer him.

       When he saw that Li Zhenruo had finished his breakfast, Li Zhenran stood up and said, “I’m going to work.”

       Li Zhenruo also stood up, and when he followed Li Zhenran to the door, he did not expect Li Zhenran to suddenly turn around and hold his shoulder with his hand, and his head came close.

       Li Zhenruo raised his hand to block it subconsciously, and Li Zhenran put his head on Li Zhenruo’s shoulder and whispered in his ear, “Come back.”

       After he said that, Li Zhenran let him go and left.
