Chapter 90

       The air in the room was still stiflingly hot and humid.

       The conversation between them two made everyone else feel that the atmosphere was a little weird, but Luo Fei still had a smile on his face and was comfortably lying on his back for someone to give him a back massage.

       Sammy, who was still waiting for Li Zhenran, couldn’t help and asked, “Sir, do you want to continue?”

       Li Zhenran said to Li Zhenruo, “You’ll see, everything can be proven.” After that, he went back to the reclining chair and sat down, letting Sammy continue to massage him.

       Sammy glanced at Li Zhenruo and asked Li Zhenran curiously, “What were you talking about just now?”

       Li Zhenran raised his head, half-closed his eyes, and said, “Just guess it.”

       Sammy said, “I guess? His friend is your old lover?”

       Li Zhenran smiled and said nothing.

       Sammy massaged his shoulders skillfully, slowly lowered his palms, and said, “Sir, you are in such a good shape.”

       Li Zhenran didn’t stop him, but at this moment, Li Zhenruo suddenly stood up.

       Sammy was startled for some reason, and subconsciously stood up and looked straight at him, only to find that Li Zhenruo didn’t look at them, but walked directly to the bathroom.

       Walking to the side of the bath, Li Zhenruo took off the bathrobe. When he changed his clothes, he didn’t think he was coming to take a bath, and he was still wearing a pair of underwear underneath.

       At this time, Li Zhenruo hooked his fingers on the edge of his underwear and was about to slowly take them off when Luo Fei stood up and said to the two young men, “You guys go out first, I’ll go to the sauna.”

       After he said that, Luo Fei put on his bathrobe and walked toward the sauna.

       When they heard what he said, the two young people had to go out one after the other. Sammy was a little reluctant and threw a wink at Li Zhenran.

       All of a sudden, only Li Zhenruo and Li Zhenran were left in this room.

       Li Zhenruo had taken off half of his pants, and wondered about what he was afraid of, he couldn’t put them back on again, so he simply took it off and stepped into the pool and sat down.

       The water temperature was just right, but the water in the pool was very clear and the scenery inside was unobstructed.

       Li Zhenruo picked up a clean towel folded by the pool, dipped it in water and put it on his shoulders. He heard Li Zhenran’s footsteps coming over but did not turn around to look.

       Until Li Zhenran sat down by the pool, stretched his feet into the pool water, and asked him, “Where do you live now?”

       Li Zhenruo glanced at him slowly, “What’s the point of asking that?”

       Li Zhenran said, “I just want to know if you are doing well?”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “It’s not me that you care about.”

       Li Zhenran reached out and stroked his hair.

       “What for?” Li Zhenruo moved his head to avoid it.

       Li Zhenran said, “Since the person I care about is no longer there, it’s good to see you for a while.”

       Li Zhenruo frowned, “Don’t treat me like the replacement of your affection.”

       Li Zhenran replied, “It’s not an affection, it’s just nostalgia, just like looking at a photo.”

       Li Zhenruo actually didn’t know whether he should be angry or indifferent at this time. After all, he was not really Shen Luming, and his emotions are all those of Li Zhenruo’s and none of those of this soul.

       Li Zhenran’s fingers rested on the back of his neck and gently rubbed it.

       Li Zhenruo reached out to hold his hand and turned to look at him.

       Li Zhenran said, “There’s a mole there, do you know it yourself?”

       Li Zhenruo stood up and said to Li Zhenran, “It doesn’t matter if I know, you can miss me like a photo, but I am a whole person, please don’t play with me like a doll.”

       After he said that, Li Zhenruo walked to the edge of the pool and raised his legs to step out. However, the bottom of the pool was a little slippery, and he fell over the side with one leg unsteadily, just in time to be caught in Li Zhenran’s arms.

       Li Zhenran picked him up and put him outside the bath.

       Luo Fei was seeing this scene when he came out. He said to Li Zhenruo, “Although Mr. Li is our big client, you don’t need to sacrifice yourself to help the business talk. So be more restrained in public.”

       Li Zhenruo gritted his teeth and replied, “Yes boss.”

       As they left the sauna, Luo Fei prepared dinner today and invited other guests besides Li Zhenran, which was why he did not let Li Zhenruo go.

       Xu Shengwen had already made arrangements for dinner.

       There were not many people at dinner, but Li Zhenruo bumped into Hua Yibang.

       The moment Hua Yibang saw Li Zhenruo, his eyes under the lens showed a surprised look. He glanced at Li Zhenran wanting to say something, then followed Li Zhenran to the table in a disciplined manner.

       Tonight was purely a social occasion.

       Li Zhenruo knew one of the guests, Ling Yi. The man was the manager of the Yuegou supermarket chain. Part of Yunlin’s e-commerce network was to build a large online supermarket, purchase and checkout through the computer or mobile client platform, and build a logistics network for home delivery. As for other parts of this e-commerce network, Li Zhenran had more ideas, but they just needed to be realized step by step.

       Li Zhenruo sat next to him and listened. He felt that these things were not very helpful to him at present. His goal was to be able to meet and learn about suitable suppliers from Luo Fei here, starting with an online store and becoming a simple distributor.

       At this dinner, Li Zhenruo and Xu Shengwen, as Luo Fei’s assistants, were, to put it bluntly, here to hold the drinks.

       When he picked up the wine glass, Li Zhenruo suddenly recalled something and suddenly hesitated. The last time he was drunk before, he couldn’t control the cat ears and cat tail showing. He hadn’t remembered it for a long time, but now that he was drinking, the memory jumped out at him.

       Luo Fei had already hinted that Li Zhenruo to toast Li Zhenran and Ling Yi.

       Li Zhenruo was now working for someone else, and even if he wanted to be his own boss, he still had to socialize in the beginning. It would be bad not to overcome this problem. He believed that as he gradually became more skilled at controlling his spiritual power, this should not be a big problem.

       So he stood up with his glass. Li Zhenruo first toasted Ling Yi with a glass of wine, then walked up to Li Zhenran and said, “Boss Li, I toast to you.”

       Li Zhenran picked up the wine glass and stood up, clinking the glasses with him politely, and then drank it.

       Li Zhenruo walked to his seat and sat down, and felt as if he was beginning to feel a little dizzy. He could not be blamed for his poor drinking capacity, and he had to blame Shen Luming for that.

       After three rounds of drinking, Li Zhenruo had begun to feel less sober. He tossed and reached out to touch the top of his head because his back was facing the wall. If the tail came out for a while, no one would see it, but it would be bad if the ears came out.

       Ling Yi, who was sitting opposite, saw that he kept touching, and couldn’t help but ask, “What the hell are you touching?”

       For a time, the whole table looked at him.

       Li Zhenruo blurted out, “Ear.”

       Next to him, Xu Shengwen laughed, grabbed his hand and touched his ear, “The ear is here.”

       Li Zhenran and Luo Fei looked at each other, Luo Fei couldn’t help but shake his head and laugh.

       Everyone thought he drank too much. Except for Li Zhenran and Luo Fei, no one thought too much.

       It was just that Li Zhenruo touched the back of his buttocks uneasily again, but since he didn’t feel it, he didn’t touch it again, but suddenly he felt something.

       The chair’s feet scraping on the floor made a lot of noise, and by this time everyone was sitting around chatting in a low voice, so once again everyone looked over at him.

       Li Zhenruo took two steps back, his back was against the wall, and his face was flushed with alcohol. He then said, “I’m going to the bathroom.”

       At that moment, he clearly touched something fluffy, and he was sure that his tail came out.

       Luo Fei actually had a smile in his eyes, but he said with a stern face, “If you want to go to the bathroom just go to the bathroom, what’s all the fuss about? Do you want me to walk you there?”

       Li Zhenruo shook his head quickly, “No, I’ll go by myself.”

       He kept his back against the wall and entered the bathroom. After locking the door, he started to touch the back of his butt over and over again and twisted his waist to look in the mirror. After looking at it for a long time, he didn’t find a tail.

       What was that furry thing just now?

       At this time outside, a waiter took the opportunity to come in for dessert and took away the keychain that he had dropped on top of Li Zhenruo’s chair when he was pouring the wine.

       There was a white fur ball hanging on the keychain, which was exactly what Li Zhenruo touched with his finger just now.

       With no tail or ears, Li Zhenruo breathed a sigh of relief, sat on the toilet lid, leaned his head against the wall and fell asleep like that.

       It wasn’t until later that the people outside were ready to leave that Li Zhenran asked the waiter to bring the bathroom key and open the door from the outside.

       Before Luo Fei left, he asked, “Are you going to take care of him?”

       Li Zhenran nodded, “I’ll do it.”

       Li Zhenruo woke up when the waiter opened the door. He sat up and looked outside blankly, “Where’s the boss?”

       Li Zhenran stood at the door of the bathroom and told him, “They have left.” Then he said to the waiter, “It’s alright, I’ll take care of him.”

       The waiter nodded politely and left first.

       Li Zhenruo stood up, took two steps outside, and suddenly stopped to touch the top of his head and buttocks, but nothing strange was found.

       Li Zhenran told him, “The ears are not showing and neither is the tail, don’t worry.”

       Li Zhenruo turned to look at him, “I’m leaving, Mr. Li.” After speaking, he passed by Li Zhenran and walked outside.

       Li Zhenran followed behind him, “I’ll send you off.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “How dare I trouble you, I’ll just go back by myself.”

       Li Zhenran took it easy, “I should always complete the tasks that your boss gave me.”

       The two came out of the hotel one after the other, and Li Zhenruo stood on the side of the road trying to stop the car.

       Li Zhenran grabbed his arm to stop him, “I have asked the driver to drive over, come with me.”

       Li Zhenruo looked at him, “Mr. Li, show some respect, I am not Li Zhenruo.”

       Li Zhenran let go of his hand, “I respect you, I just want to take you home.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I don’t need a ride from you, aren’t you going to respect my opinion?”

       Li Zhenran suddenly pointed to the top of his head, “Cat ears.”

       Li Zhenruo froze and was about to reach out to touch them when suddenly a coat came down over his head and Li Zhenran grabbed him by the shoulders and said, “The car is here, there are too many people here, get in and talk.”

       Under the influence of alcohol, Li Zhenruo couldn’t react properly, and he couldn’t judge whether his ears were really coming out. He was led by Li Zhenran to the car before he pulled off Li Zhenran’s coat and threw it to him, “Take it away, I don’t want to smell you.”

       His nose was too sensitive, and the smell of Li Zhenran was all over his coat, which made his breathing a little hard.

       Li Zhenran grabbed the coat and didn’t get angry. He then said, “Why do you drink so much since you can’t drink it? Come back to me, you don’t have to work so hard.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I’m doing fine now. I want to live the life I choose, not the one others have paved for me to go.”

       Li Zhenran said softly, “You can choose any path, I’m just giving you a choice.”

       Li Zhenruo turned to look at him, “Thank you, Mr. Li, but no need.”

       Li Zhenran said to him, “Okay, you can always come to me at any time if you need it.”

Chapter 89

       Li Zhenruo had little to pack for his move. He had almost nothing to pack, not even clothes, so he moved into the house that Luo Fei prepared for him empty-handed.

       The so-called staff dormitory was actually a suite prepared by Luo Fei who didn’t want him to continue to sleep with Feng Junyuan. It was very close to the company and the surrounding environment was not bad.

       The room was fully furnished but still lacked some daily necessities. The boss Luo Fei was very considerate and asked the company to give him a month’s salary in advance, and let him buy it himself when he moved in.

       Li Zhenruo went to the supermarket and simply moved back to a cat bed so that he wouldn’t have to buy a set of bedding. He wasn’t uncomfortable sleeping by himself.

       At night, Li Zhenruo stayed alone in his room reading a book. He asked Song Jun to go to the school library to help him borrow many books related to logistics. He didn’t know anything yet, so he could only quietly study more.

       When he was tired of reading, Li Zhenruo went to take a shower, blow-dried his hair, turned into a cat and curled himself up in the cat’s bed to go to sleep.

       Luo Fei was generally a good boss to get along with, and he had more than one assistant around him, so Li Zhenruo’s job was relatively easy at the moment.

       Li Zhenruo had a lot of curiosity about the identity Luo Fei had. In the beginning, Li Zhenran helped him get his ID card through Luo Fei’s connections.

       Li Zhenruo was not without common sense, it wasn’t easy to get a real ID card in such a short time. He believed that there must be a powerful backup behind Luo Fei, or else Luo Fei was not actually a human being.

       What was it? A great demon like his master?

       For this question, Li Zhenruo asked Feng Junyuan curiously.

       With an “Ah” Feng Junyuan said, “Can’t tell you.”

       Li Zhenruo said strangely, “Why can’t you tell me?”

       Feng Junyuan said firmly, “I can’t say it.” No matter what method Li Zhenruo tried, he couldn’t pry Luo Fei’s mouth open.

       That afternoon, Luo Fei went out with another assistant, Xu Shengwen, and left Li Zhenruo to stay at the company.

       Li Zhenruo was looking through the documents in the office, and shortly afterwards he received a call from Xu Shengwen, asking him to bring over a document from Luo Fei’s desk.

       After he hung up, Li Zhenruo did as Xu Shengwen instructed and found the document inside the kraft paper bag on Luo Fei’s desk.

       He took the documents and asked the company’s driver to drive him to the address given by Xu Shengwen, which was a commercial club in the city with a bathing sauna inside. When Luo Fei went out at noon, he said he was doing some business talk, and now Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but silently cursed at Luo Fei’s carefree business talk.

       The driver dropped him off at an address, and Li Zhenruo called Xu Shengwen while walking inside after getting off the car.

       Xu Shengwen was waiting for Li Zhenruo at the door of the private room. When he saw him coming, he said, “Jason, please send the documents to Mr. Luo inside.”

       Li Zhenruo had planned to hand the documents to Xu Shengwen, but at this time he had to withdraw his hand and asked, “I’m going in?” He didn’t understand why he had to go instead of Xu Shengwen, but as Xu Shengwen was a senior and he was still in his internship, he would naturally do what he was told to do.

       Xu Shengwen just smiled and patted his shoulder and said, “Go ahead.”

       Li Zhenruo then took the document and wanted to walk into the private room, but was stopped by the staff at the door of the private room, and said politely, “Sir, please change first.”

       “Change clothes?” Li Zhenruo looked up at the top of the private room door and saw no obvious signs. However, he still obeyed the request of the waiter and went down to the dressing room next to him to change clothes under the guidance of the staff.

       When he looked back at Xu Shengwen, he saw that the other party smiled kindly at him, which was a little unclear.

       Li Zhenruo was taken to the dressing room and changed into a bathrobe. All other valuables were kept in the wardrobe of the dressing room. He only used a waterproof bag to pack the documents, and then went back to the private room wearing slippers.

       As soon as the private room door was opened, the water vapour coming from the shop was wrapped in a familiar scent.

       Li Zhenruo sniffed, and he could clearly smell the scent belonging to Li Zhenran.

       There was a bath in this private room, and there was a sauna next to it.

       There were three people in the private room. Luo Fei was lying on the massage table, covered with a bath towel, with a young man beside him massaging his shoulders, and there was a person sitting with his back to him in the bathtub. He didn’t need to look to know that it was Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenruo just glanced at Li Zhenran’s back, then walked towards Luo Fei and said, “Mr. Luo, I brought the documents.”

       Luo Fei raised his head and glanced at him, but only said “um” and said nothing else.

       Li Zhenruo looked at the handsome young man who was massaging him and regretted that he had left his mobile phone in the locker in the locker room, otherwise he should have taken some photos and sent them to Feng Junyuan.

       Luo Fei didn’t give any orders, and Li Zhenruo stood beside him without moving.

       At this time, there was the sound of water coming from the bathtub, and Li Zhenruo subconsciously turned to look and saw that Li Zhenran was about to get up from the water.

       Li Zhenruo subconsciously glanced at the young man beside him, then turned to look at Li Zhenran, saw that he stood up and did not come out immediately, but took a bathrobe and put it on before stepping out of the bathtub.

       Li Zhenran seemed to have lost weight.

       In fact, it was only a month away from the last day he saw Li Zhenran, but Li Zhenruo felt that Li Zhenran seemed to be really thin. He stared at Li Zhenran’s clearly visible collarbone and his increasingly sharp jawline.

       It wasn’t until Li Zhenran sat down on the chair next to him that Li Zhenruo averted his gaze.

       “Xiao Tuan,” Luo Fei said suddenly, “Read the document to Mr. Li.”

       Li Zhenruo nodded, walked to Li Zhenran’s side, opened the waterproof bag and took out the document. At this time, Li Zhenran reached out to him, “I’ll read it myself.”

       Without Luo Fei’s consent, Li Zhenruo did not immediately hand him the document but looked at Luo Fei.

       Luo Fei said, “Let’s give it to Mr. Li to read for himself. This is the document I told you came out from above. The policy will change, and the price change is natural. You can wait until the official document come down from above, and then consider whether you are going to regret it or not.”

       The latter sentence was said to Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenran took over the document and did not rush to open it, but looked at Li Zhenruo and said, “I remember your name is Shen Luming?”

       Li Zhenruo said to him, “Now my name is Li Tuan.”

       Li Zhenran nodded, “Can you sit for a while and wait for me?”

       “Of course,” Li Zhenruo sat down beside him.

       Li Zhenran opened the document, but said to Li Zhenruo, “You didn’t study at university anymore?”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “I can’t continue to study at university now.”

       Li Zhenran asked him, “What about your girlfriend?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I can wait for her to graduate.”

       Then the two were silent for a short time.

       Li Zhenran flipped through the documents, but Li Zhenruo felt a little bored, so he stood up and pulled the placket.

       “Are you used to working here at Luo Fei’s?” In the quiet room, Li Zhenran suddenly asked again.

       Li Zhenruo looked back at him and said nothing.

       Li Zhenran then raised his head and waited for him.

       Li Zhenruo noticed Li Zhenran’s protruding collarbone again, he turned his head and looked forward, “There’s nothing to get used to, you get used to it as you do it, people are like that.”

       Li Zhenran said, “But I’m still not used to it.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t answer him.

       Li Zhenran said to himself, “It’s like there’s something missing in my life, and I can’t get used to it.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “You will get used to it gradually, or you will find something else to fill in.”

       The young man who had been concentrating on massaging Luo Fei couldn’t help but look up at the two of them when he heard them talking.

       At this time, Luo Fei buried his head and said, “I didn’t ask you to come here to flirt with my guest.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “When did I flirt with your guest? Besides, you said it was your guest. I’m helping my boss to accompany the customer, shouldn’t you give me more bonus?”

       Luo Fei let out a laugh, “Talking to your boss like that? You think I’m your old boss?”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “I’m sorry, you are my first boss, and I have never followed other bosses.”

       Li Zhenran had already read the document by now and handed it back to Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenruo took it and put it in the waterproof bag.

       Luo Fei asked Li Zhenran, “How was it?”

       Li Zhenran said, “I will seriously consider your suggestion just now.”

       Li Zhenruo sorted out the documents and asked Luo Fei, “Boss, is there anything else?”

       Luo Fei said, “Wait a minute.”

       Li Zhenruo could only wait beside him in silence.

       Luo Fei said to the young man beside him, “Call someone to come and give Mr Li a shoulder massage.”

       The young man replied, “Okay,” he left Luo Fei and walked outside. When he reached the door, he seemed to remember that there was another person in the room, and turned back and asked, “Only for one person?”

       Luo Fei asked Li Zhenruo, “Do you need it?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “No need.”

       Luo Fei said to the young man, “One person is enough.” Then he told Li Zhenruo: “Don’t be in a hurry, and sit down next to him first.”

       There was a small table next to it, with fruit plates and drinks on it.

       Li Zhenruo was polite, walked over and sat down to eat a few gr4p3s.

       Soon another young man came in, this time he had dyed blond hair and was very handsome. He said with a smile on his face, “Hello, my name is Sammy, may I ask which gentleman needs a massage.”

       Luo Fei pointed in the direction of Li Zhenran.

       Sammy walked over to the empty massage table and said, “Sir, come and lie down.”

       Li Zhenruo looked at Li Zhenran.

       As a result, Li Zhenran said, “No need, just sit and massage.”

       Sammy seemed a little surprised, “It’s uncomfortable to massage while sitting. Lying on your stomach is the most comfortable.”

       At this time, the young man who was massaging Luo Fei couldn’t help but interjected, “Just do as the customer tells you.”

       “Oh,” Sammy then walked behind Li Zhenran, put both hands on his shoulders, and started massaging him.

       Li Zhenruo looked at them expressionlessly while eating gr4p3s.

       Sammy said, “Sir your shoulders are so stiff, you haven’t worked out much lately, have you?”

       Li Zhenran didn’t answer.

       Luo Fei said, “Why do you ask so many questions?”

       Li Zhenruo was a little bored, he stretched out his arms, and the bathrobe was falling halfway down, revealing half of his shoulders and chest.

       Li Zhenran suddenly stood up and walked up to him to help him pull up the bathrobe.

       “What for?” Li Zhenruo was a little surprised by his sudden action.

       Li Zhenran squatted in front of him, helped him pull the bathrobe, and then re-fastened his belt.

       Li Zhenruo looked down and saw the top of Li Zhenran’s head, and then saw Li Zhenran raise his head and said to him, “This is the body of the person I love the most, don’t just expose it to others like that.”

       Li Zhenruo was stunned and said to him, “It has nothing to do with you anymore.”

       Li Zhenran stood up and looked down at him, “Can you tell me what he said to you last?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Do you want to know?”

       Li Zhenran replied, “I want to know.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “He said he loves you, but he is afraid that you will lie to him.”

       Li Zhenran said, “I won’t lie to him again.”

       Li Zhenruo shook his head, “How does he know you’re not lying to him with that words?”

Why does it feel that Li Zhenran didn’t even think Li Zhenruo is dead? Either he’s hoping so much Zhenruo is not dead yet or… He already see through the plan

Chapter 88

       Li Zhenran stepped into the rain curtain. He squatted down in front of the Garfield on the ground and reached out to touch his chest. Its chest was still warm and heaving softly.

       At that moment, Li Zhenran’s expression was a little dazed.

       He admitted that he was hesitant at the last moment. When he knew that Li Zhenruo began to contact Shen Luming, his first thought was to keep the two of them apart no matter what. It wasn’t that Li Zhenrah didn’t think of other options, and he even hesitated to go after Shen Luming first.

       However, now that he and Li Zhenruo have come to this point, he started to be overcautious and was reluctant to make any rash moves, for fear that their relationship would come to an irreparable end.

       But even if he tried hard to save it, Li Zhenruo didn’t give him any room to regret and chose to leave easily.

       “He—” Li Zhenran opened his mouth to ask Xia Hongshen.

       At this time, the Garfield, who was lying on the ground, slowly opened his eyes.

       Li Zhenran watched him struggle to get away from his palm, rolled and stood up. His legs were still a little weak, but he took two steps back.

       The heavy rain made it difficult for Garfield to open his eyes. He shook his head and shook the water on his body, looking at Li Zhenran with strange and wary eyes.

       Xia Hongshen didn’t like being exposed to the rain either. The feeling of wet clothes wrapped around his body reminded him of the feeling of wet fur on his body, which was very uncomfortable. He asked the Garfield, “Are you okay? Getting used to your body?”

       The Garfield shook the water on his body again, and instead of looking at Li Zhenran, he came to Shen Luming who was lying on the ground and looked at Shen Luming worriedly.

       Xia Hongshen said, “It’s okay, he can’t wake up for the time being, and he may have to be taken to the hospital. He lost consciousness before and was occupied by you.”

       The Garfield seemed to breathe a sigh of relief, and lightly touched Shen Luming’s hair with his lips.

       Li Zhenran stood up slowly and looked at him without saying a word.

       Xia Hongshen walked over to pick up Shen Luming and walked towards the stairwell. The Garfield hurriedly followed behind him without looking at Li Zhenran.

       “Teacher Xia,” Li Zhenran suddenly stopped Xia Hongshen.

       Xia Hongshen had already carried Shen Luming to a place where there was no rain, turned around and looked at Li Zhenran, “What?”

       Li Zhenran’s clothes were completely soaked, and his hair was on his cheeks. He asked Xia Hongshen, “How can I find him?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “If he can be reincarnated smoothly, maybe one day you can meet him.”

       After he finished speaking, Xia Hongshen carried Shen Luming and left, while the Garfield followed him and hurriedly walked out.

       Only Li Zhenran was left alone, facing the empty rooftop.

       When Li Zhenran returned that night, he fell ill.

       He didn’t eat dinner. After he took a shower and dried his hair, he lay limp on the bed, with a sore and dry throat. The whole person was a little muddled, lacking in energy, but unable to sleep.

       After a while, Li Zhenran picked up his mobile phone and made a call. He said to the people over there, “Keep watching over Shen Luming to see if he has changed from the past, if he is still with his girlfriend, and if he has given up his plans to go abroad.”

       After giving these instructions, Li Zhenran hung up the phone, raised his head and closed his eyes.

       He didn’t fully believe that the scene he saw today was true, but his sadness wasn’t fake either.

       His head hurts, but his brain was running unconsciously. What he should do next emerged clearly in his mind, but he couldn’t do it.

       The more he did, the further he was likely to push Li Zhenruo.

       At this time, Wang Ma knocked on the door outside and told him to go down for dinner.

       “No,” Li Zhenran replied in a hoarse voice, “I’m not feeling well.”

       Wang Ma heard the words and said quickly, “What? Are you sick? Do you want someone to take you to the hospital?”

       Li Zhenran replied, “No, I’ll just take a couple of cold pills and I’ll be fine.”

       He had always been in good health. Today, he was probably sick because of the rain and his emotional turmoil. Li Zhenran’s whole body was aching and felt weak, and he had no appetite or desire to move when he was lying in bed.

       After a while, Wang Ma brought him cold medicine, congee, and pickles.

       Li Zhenran reluctantly drank some congee and took the cold medicine with a glass of water.

       Wang Ma sat by the bed, looked at him tenderly, and suddenly asked, “Where’s Dumpling?”

       Li Zhenran raised his arm to block his eyes and said softly, “Ran away.”

       Wang Ma was stunned for a while, “Ran away again?” Then she sighed and said, “I guess it’s time for him to go into heat again, I told you to castrate it a long time ago, but you are reluctant to do it.”

       When he heard this, Li Zhenran couldn’t hold back a wry smile, “I’m just afraid that he wouldn’t live long after he was castrated.”

       Wang Ma went out with the porridge bowl he had not finished eating and helped him close the door.

       Li Zhenran reached out and picked up the collar at the head of the bed, and his fingers lightly stroked the lettering inside the collar, which had his own name engraved on it, as if to indicate the owner’s possession of the pet.

       In fact, he really hadn’t used the positioning function of the collar for a long time. For him, the collar no longer had the same meaning as it had at first, but unfortunately, Li Zhenruo would not believe it.

       Holding the collar, Li Zhenran rolled over somewhat uncomfortably, lying on his side and closed his eyes, but his hands never let go of the collar.

       The heavy rain that had been falling all day finally stopped at night.

       Li Zhenruo and Xia Hongshen were cooking hotpot around the induction cooker, and the fragrance wafted throughout the small building.

       Song Jun was in charge of the dishes, while the others stared at the pot with their bowls and drooled.

       Shortly after the potato slices were cooked, Long Xing wanted to stretch out his chopsticks, but Xia Hongshen hit him hard with his own chopsticks.

       Long Xing looked at Xia Hongshen at a loss and withdrew his hand.

       Xi Anling glanced at Long Xing and then at Xia Hongshen, and quickly put the chopsticks into the pot, but Xia Hongshen threw the chopsticks out before she caught the potato chips.

       Xi Anling complained, “I want to eat potato slices!”

       Xia Hongshen said expressionlessly, “Not soft.”

       Xi Anling pouted, “I like crispy ones!”

       Xia Hongshen said, “No.”

       Long Xing whispered, “I also want to eat the crispy ones too…”

       Xia Hongshen looked at them coldly, “If you all eat all the crispy ones, I’ll never be able to eat the soft potato chips.”

       Xi Anling tapped the bowl with chopsticks, pointed at Xia Hongshen and said, “You tyrant!”

       Xia Hongshen raised his head, his jawline was elegant and smooth, “Got a problem with that?”

       Long Xing reached out and hugged Xi Anling’s shoulder, “Forget it.”

       Unconvinced, Xi Anling pushed Feng Junyuan and said, “Xiao Feng, shall we vote?”

       Feng Junyuan still held the bowl and continued to stare at the pot. When he heard this, he glanced at Xi Anling and said hesitantly, “I want to eat soft ones too.”

       Song Jun said at this time, “I’m going to the supermarket tomorrow to buy a nine-square grid. What each person wants to eat will be thrown into the small grid in front of him. Eat what you eat and don’t touch others.”

       Xi Anling said quickly, “I agree!”

       Only Li Zhenruo said nothing and stared at the hot pot in a daze.

       Song Jun nudged him lightly, “What? Are you in a bad mood?”

       Li Zhenruo raised his head, saw everyone looking at him, and quickly said, “No.”

       Song Jun said, “Look, you lied to him, but you’re actually still sad inside.”

       Li Zhenruo heard the words and said, “I think he may not fully believe it.”

       “Why?” It was Long Xing who asked the question.

       Li Zhenruo sighed and said, “Master’s acting skills are too exaggerated.”

       Xia Hongshen didn’t seem to raise his hand, but Li Zhenruo felt a knock on the head, and then heard Xia Hongshen say, “Blaming me?”

       Li Zhenruo said quickly, “I don’t blame you, I blame myself as the disciple for being useless.”

       Song Jun asked at this time, “What if he believed it?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Maybe we should separate.”

       Xi Anling said softly, “Let’s not talk about that.”

       When Xi Anling saw that Xia Hongshen was looking at Li Zhenruo, she immediately stretched out her chopsticks and put a piece of potato in the pot, but only when she ate it in her mouth did she realize that it had become soft.

       As he saw this, Xia Hongshen said, “Oh, you can start eating.”

       After that day, he never saw Li Zhenran again.

       In regards to the matter of feelings, Li Zhenruo intended to put them aside for a while and treat himself as someone who was out of love. It was a terrible thing to fall out of love, but the pain of falling out of love and being unable to get out of it was even more terrifying.

       Li Zhenruo accepted Luo Fei’s invitation when he asked him to work in the logistics company that Luo Fei was running.

       The job was offered to him by Feng Junyuan, and at first Li Zhenruo was a bit hesitant. It was just that he had no capital and no experience now, and it was already the best choice for him to have a company like Luo Fei’s accept him.

       Moreover, previously he knew that Li Zhenran had been in contact with Luo Fei for Yunlin’s development in e-commerce. Real estate investment would slow down next, and with Yunlin’s commercial real estate companies, the large-scale development of e-commerce was definitely the next most important development trend. When he was still in Yunlin, Li Zhenran had already started to prepare for this.

       Now that he and Li Zhentai had left one after another, Li Zhenran was a bit distracted. The development of e-commerce had slowed down a little, but it should be the next big thing for Yunlin.

       If he could go to work at Luo Fei, you would definitely come into contact with a lot of e-commerce industries, maybe he could point out a path for his future development, and he could have the opportunity to establish some personal connections.

       With this idea in mind, Li Zhenruo went to Luo Fei’s company for an interview.

       As a result, the big boss gave him an interview in person. Luo Fei sat behind the big desk, glanced at him, and said, “Okay, come and be my assistant.”

       “Huh?” Li Zhenruo was stunned.

       “Don’t want to?” Luo Fei asked him.

       Li Zhenruo said, “I think it is more suitable for me to start from the grassroots level, even if I have to look after the warehouse, it’s fine.”

       Luo Fei heard the words and said, “No need, Fourth Young Master Li.”

       It had been a long time since anyone called him that, Li Zhenruo looked at Luo Fei, “Did xiao Feng complaint to you or did Li Zhenran complaint to you?”

       Luo Fei said, “Junyuan complaint to me.”

       Li Zhenruo nodded, then approached Luo Fei suspiciously and asked, “What exactly is your relationship with my master and the others?”

       Luo Fei said calmly, “I’m Junyuan’s lover, don’t you know that?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I know, but as far as I know, xiao Feng isn’t a human at all, right? What about you?”

       Luo Fei smiled, “You care so much about your boss’s privacy?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I haven’t worked for anyone else before, and I thought that since I was working for someone else now, I had to find out what my boss might like, right?”

       Luo Fei said with a smile, “Then you don’t have to worry about it, you just need to know that what I like is Feng Junyuan.”

       Li Zhenruo heard the words, and nodded, “I’ll remember.”

       Luo Fei said, “When can you go to work?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Anytime.”

       Luo Fei said to him, “Okay, the company provides accommodation and food, you can start working today and move into the company dormitory in the afternoon.”

       “Huh?” Li Zhenruo was a little surprised, but then quickly realized that he had been living with Feng Junyuan until now, and his boss must be unhappy.

       Luo Fei opened the drawer, took out a key and threw it at him. The key was wrapped in a small note with the address and house number written on it.

       “Special privileges, one set of an independent dormitory, you live alone,” Luo Fei looked at him, “How’s that? Is it convenient to move?”

       Li Zhenruo took the key and shook it, “You’re not going to deduct the rent from my salary, are you?”

       Luo Fei said, “No.”

       Li Zhenruo suddenly smiled and said, “Then it’s not a problem.”

The author has something to say:

I have read all the opinions of xiao shou, and after thinking about it carefully, maybe compared to two men struggling with hundreds of thousands of words about love or not, readers of Danmei may prefer the love story of a real man struggling in the battle, career, cultivation and fighting monsters in these plots, I won’t say whether I like it or not. But it’s true that I’m not good at writing those plots. I’ll finish filling the hole in the secret love story after this one is over, and I’ll be careful about starting a longer story in the future.

And in order to prevent you from saying that I ended it casually, this article is still not finished today一

Chapter 87

       That night, Li Zhenruo really dreamt that he was spanking Li Zhenran’s ass.

       It was not just like taking off his pants and slapping a few times with the palm of his hand. But in a dimly lit room, as if to enforce the house rule, he made Li Zhenran lie on his back on a bench with his trousers down to reveal his firm and shiny buttocks, and then he took a long whip. He swung it in the air and made a whistling sound, and then aimed the whip heavily at Li Zhenran.

       At the same time as the whip was struck, Li Zhenruo also woke up. He sat up abruptly from the bed, pulled the quilt away with a dark face and glanced at himself.

       Next to him, Feng Junyuan turned over and asked vaguely, “What’s wrong?”

       Li Zhenruo said softly, “It’s okay, you can continue to sleep.”

       Having this strange dream didn’t make him feel any better, but Li Zhenruo thought that Xia Hongshen was right, why should he punish himself at this time? Isn’t Li Zhenran the one who should be punished?

       It was raining outside, probably since last night. The rain dripped on the tiles of the old house, ticking everywhere, and the air was filled with damp and cold smells.

       It was almost dawn, and Li Zhenruo felt that he was wide awake and no longer drowsy.

       He began to seriously consider what he should do next if Shen Luming really wasn’t going to take his body back.

       Of course, he couldn’t just stick to Xia Hongshen and the others like that. Not to mention that his master was poor as hell himself and had such a big family.

       So he had to continue his cultivation training and had to go to work to earn money. It was best to save enough capital first and then develop slowly, he was still very young, wasn’t he?

       Before he knew it, it was dawn. Li Zhenruo saw that Feng Junyuan was still sleeping soundly next to him, and sat on the bed without moving.

       After a while, someone knocked lightly on the door outside.

       Li Zhenruo got out of bed and went to open the door. He saw Song Jun standing at the door, and whispered to him, “Someone is looking for you.”

       “Looking for me?” Li Zhenruo heard the words and looked into the corridor. In fact, his first reaction was that Li Zhenran came to him.

       Song Jun shook his head and said to him, “This way.” Then he motioned for Li Zhenruo to follow him.

       Li Zhenruo then followed Song Jun through the corridor and into his and Xia Hongshen’s room across the hall.

       The room was very warm, Xia Hongshen lay lazily on the bed and did not want to get up.

       Song Jun went to the window and lifted the curtain, asking Li Zhenruo to look through.

       Li Zhenruo approached and saw a man standing on the opposite side of the path downstairs. The man was wearing a black suit, wrapped in a long black trench coat, holding an umbrella in his hand, and he was slender.

       Song Jun whispered, “I saw him when I woke up in the morning. I don’t know when he came.”

       Although his face was covered by an umbrella, Li Zhenruo could recognize that it was Li Zhenran.

       Because it was raining a bit heavily, half of Li Zhenran’s sleeves were already wet by the rain, and the legs of his trousers were also wetly wrapped around his legs.

       Song Jun said, “Bitter meat plan1the trick of injuring oneself to gain the enemy’s confidence.”

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t help laughing when he heard the words.

       Xia Hongshen was lying on the bed and said in a muffled voice, “Come here, apprentice.”

       “Master,” Li Zhenruo went to Xia Hongshen’s bedside well-mannerly.

       Xia Hongshen stretched out his finger and pointed at him, “I told you, spank him, if not, slap his face, let him suffer the lesson he deserves.”

       “But Master,” Li Zhenruo said, “The problem between me and him is not something that can be solved by punishing him. The biggest problem between us now was about trust. I don’t doubt that he loves me, I just doubt that every word he says to me is true.”

       Xia Hongshen said, “Then teach him enough lessons so that he will never dare to lie to you again.”

       Li Zhenruo was quiet for a while, then stood up and went back to the window, looking at Li Zhenran downstairs.

       Song Jun went out to wash in the water room.

       Li Zhenruo took his mobile phone and called Li Zhenran.

       The call was quickly connected, and the receiver was full of background sounds of raindrops falling on the ground. Li Zhenran said, “Zhenruo?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “What are you doing here?”

       When he heard this, Li Zhenran raised his head and looked towards the window on the second floor, and saw Li Zhenruo who was standing by the window on the phone.

       His deep voice came through the receiver, “Did you go to see the person surnamed Shen?”

       Li Zhenruo said blankly, “Are you monitoring me?”

       Li Zhenran said to him, “I  said I had someone watching him.”

       Li Zhenruo was silent for a while and replied, “Yes, I went to see him.”

       “Why do you want to see him?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I was going to return my body to him.”

       Li Zhenran’s eyes suddenly became sharp, and even through the rainy sky, Li Zhenruo could still see clearly.

       “Have you made up your mind?” Li Zhenran asked him.

       “Well,” Li Zhenruo said, “I’ve thought about it, and we’re waiting for the right moment. I’ll give my body back to him, then I’ll go to the Naihe Bridge and drink a bowl of Granny Meng’s soup and forget about you when I go to my next life.2Naihe Bridge is a place where people must pass through reincarnation in Chinese folk mythology. There will be an elderly female deity called Old lady Meng by the Naihe Bridge who will give each ghost a bowl of soup to forget the memory of the past life

       Li Zhenran said, “I don’t agree.”

       Li Zhenruo breathed out slowly, “You can’t control everything, right? Things have always gotten out of hand once or twice, like when Li Zhentai got someone to kill me, or when I chose to leave you now. You go to all the trouble to calculate, and maybe the result you get in the end won’t be the one you want.”


       Li Zhenruo didn’t listen to him and chose to hang up the phone.

       Li Zhenran still held the phone to his ear, looked up at him and didn’t leave.

       Li Zhenruo closed the curtain silently, then turned to Xia Hongshen and said, “I want to put on a show for Li Zhenran to watch.”

       Xia Hongshen sat beside the bed and yawned.

       Li Zhenruo said, “I want to trick Li Zhenran into thinking that I have returned my body to Shen Luming.”

       At this time, Song Jun happened to come in from outside, and after hearing Li Zhenruo’s words, he couldn’t help but sigh, “It’s so cruel.”

       Li Zhenruo was a little exasperated, “I was much more gentle with him than he was with me.”

       Xia Hongshen said to Song Jun, “Let them toss and turn, it’s none of your business.”

       Song Jun nodded hurriedly and silently went to pack up the things he needed for today’s class.

       Xia Hongshen said, “If you really fooled him, he will definitely suffer.”

       “Master,” Li Zhenruo said, “You may think I’m good for nothing if I say it. The reason why I went to Shen Luming last night and offered to return my body to him was that I was beginning to feel scared of Li Zhenran and I couldn’t figure out what he was thinking.”

       Xia Hongshen then asked him, “Have you calmed down now?”

       Li Zhenruo nodded, “I thought about it for a long time. If I continue to maintain my fear and distrust of him, then we will definitely have no way to go on.”

       Song Jun couldn’t help but ask, “Then do you still want to continue to be with him?”

       Li Zhenruo was silent for a moment and said, “If I’m not afraid anymore.”

       Xia Hongshen got out of bed wearing a piece of clothing, “Fear is because you are not strong enough.”

       Li Zhenruo looked at him.

       Xia Hongshen said, “In every sense, you are not strong enough.”

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t help looking back at the window, through the curtains, he didn’t know if Li Zhenran was still there, but Xia Hongshen was right, he was not strong enough, so he feared the other person.

       In this relationship, he was just putting himself in the position of the weaker one, but who loved whom more and who was more afraid of whose departure?

       Suddenly, he was a little glad that Shen Luming had rejected him last night when he was at his most impulsive, otherwise when he really stepped on the Naihe Bridge, would he not be able to help regret it.

       Li Zhenran didn’t stay at the school building for too long, because there was a meeting in Yunlin in the morning.

       Yunlin’s recent conferences had continued, mainly due to the adjustment of the upper management and the large-scale personnel changes after Li Zhenran took over.

       However, during today’s meeting, everyone could see that Li Zhenran was not in high spirits.

       Li Zhenzi sat next to him and occasionally glanced up at Li Zhenran, seeing him sitting in a large office chair, leaning back, elbows propped up on the armrest, holding a pen in one hand, his gaze falling on the information in front of him, but his expression seemed inattentive.

       After the speaker reported the content, he fell silent and waited for Li Zhenran’s opinion.

       Li Zhenran didn’t speak for a while.

       Li Zhenzi put his hand to his mouth and coughed softly.

       Li Zhenran then raised his head and said, “Continue.”

       So the next person went on to report.

       Suddenly, Li Zhenran’s cell phone rang, and the person preparing to report stopped again.

       Li Zhenran answered the phone in front of the entire conference room. After listening to the person on the other side with a blank face, he only said coldly, “Keep an eye on him.” Then he hung up the phone and threw it on the table to let them continue.

       At the end of the meeting, Li Zhenran directly picked up the stack of documents in front of him and walked out.

       Li Zhenzi was pulled by a department manager and said a few words, and then he hurriedly followed Li Zhenran’s office. When he wanted to knock on the door to go in, he heard that there seemed to be a phone call inside.

       He put his head on the door and wanted to eavesdrop. Hua Yibang looked a little embarrassed and said, “This is not quite appropriate, is it?”

       “Shh—” Li Zhenzi put his index finger on his lips.

       It was a pity that the door was well soundproofed. Li Zhenzi eavesdropped for a long time and couldn’t hear anything.

       Suddenly, Li Zhenran pulled the door open from the inside.

       Li Zhenzi was startled, stood up straight and pretended to be knocking on the door.

       Li Zhenran ignored him and said directly to Hua Yibang, “I have to go out for something.”

       Hua Yibang heard the words, “Then I will ask the driver to prepare the car.”

       Li Zhenran said, “No, I’ll drive by myself.” He put on his jacket and walked outside.

       Li Zhenzi was still limping, but he tried his best to catch up and asked, “Second brother, where are you going?”

       Li Zhenran pressed the elevator and told him, “It’s none of your business.”

       The elevator was on the twenty-third floor, and the elevator door opened quickly.

       Li Zhenzi followed Li Zhenran into the elevator, “What’s wrong? I didn’t see your cat last night, did it run away from home?”

       Li Zhenran ignored him. When the elevator went down to the basement floor, and the doors opened, Li Zhenzhi was about to follow him out, and Li Zhenran suddenly turned around and punched Li Zhenzi in the lower abdomen and said, “Don’t follow me.”

       Li Zhenzi bent down from the pain groaned and said, “Do you have to be that ruthless…”

       Li Zhenran received a call from the person he arranged beside Shen Luming, telling him that Li Zhenruo went to Shen Luming again, and this time it was very clear that he would return his body to Shen Luming.

       On the way, Li Zhenran drove furiously and ran two red lights. He didn’t know if the so-called handing over the body was that simple, but he knew that Li Zhenruo’s so-called master didn’t seem to be that simple.

       Having seen a cat become a human, he dare not say anything in the world was impossible.

       After driving the car to the school and parked on the side of the road, Li Zhenran got out of the car and ran into the adjacent teaching building, anxiously waiting for the elevator to sit on the top floor of the teaching building, then turned to the stairs and ran to the roof.

       Li Zhenran suddenly pushed open the roof door and saw a person standing outside while the other two were lying on the ground.

       It was still raining, and everyone on the rooftop was soaked by the rain.

       Li Zhenran walked in the direction where Li Zhenruo was lying.

       Xia Hongshen, who was standing beside him, said to him, “You are late, he has already returned his body.”

       Li Zhenran paused after hearing the words and asked, “What about him?”

       Xia Hongshen looked at the sky, “A wisp of a soul, it should have been reincarnated long ago.”

       As soon as he finished speaking, Li Zhenruo on the ground shrank his limbs and turned back into a cat, but still lay unconscious.

The author has something to say:

It’s almost over, maybe it will be over tomorrow…

Chapter 86

       Inside the university building classroom, the students were quietly studying for their evening classes. A girl sitting in the back row stretched and stood up to go to the toilet. She had just walked to the back door of the classroom when she saw a cat looking inside.

       The girl squatted down in amazement and reached out to touch the cat’s head.

       Li Zhenruo raised his head and glanced at the girl. When he saw that her nails were clean and she was cute, he held back and didn’t avoid it. He continued to look inside while he let her touch the top of his head.

       “Huh?” The girl noticed the phone hanging around his neck and reached out to get it.

       Li Zhenruo retreated this time, dodged to the side, and ran into the classroom at the same time since he had already found the person he was looking for.

       Shen Luming was attending the evening self-study, and the girl sitting next to him was his girlfriend. The classroom was quietly filled with students, and at first, except for the girl who went to the toilet, everyone lowered their heads and studied hard, so no one noticed a cat running in.

       Then all of the sudden, Shen Luming stood up abruptly.

       His table and chair rattled, and all the people in the classroom looked in his direction. His girlfriend was even more startled and reached out to pull the hem of his clothes, asking, “What’s wrong?”

       Shen Luming didn’t answer and turned to look at the passage leading to him from the back of the classroom.

       Li Zhenruo stopped halfway to look at him.

       The others were also baffled, they followed him and saw the cat sneaking in.

       One person and one cat began to look at each other in silence for a long time, the kind of heart-warming attraction to each other. If Li Zhenruo didn’t know what was going on, he would definitely suspect that he had fell in love with this person at first sight.

       Shen Luming was more at a loss. He looked at the cat standing in the corridor for a long time, and said to his girlfriend, “I’m going out for a while.”

       The girl asked him strangely, “Why is this ……”

       Shen Luming didn’t answer her, and asked the people sitting outside to get out of the way, and walked out by himself until he stood in front of Li Zhenruo, lowered his head and asked him, “Are you here to find me?”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t say anything, just turned around and walked outside, he knew that Shen Luming would definitely follow.

       Then Shen Luming’s girlfriend stared dumbfoundedly as her boyfriend followed a cat halfway through his self-study session.

       Li Zhenruo walked with Shen Luming towards the secluded path. Behind the dark teaching building where no one was there, Li Zhenruo took light steps, stretched out the fluff of his hands and feet, and turned into a young man.

       Shen Luming stood there and looked at him, seemingly surprised and seemingly taking it as a matter of course that this was how it should be.

       “Are we related in some way?” Shen Luming asked.

       Li Zhenruo nodded, “Do you remember your past?”

       Shen Luming looked puzzled, “My past?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Someone told me that my current body belongs to you.”

       Shen Luming froze in place and didn’t respond. After a while, he said, “You mean you, or the cat?”

       “Both,” Li Zhenruo said, “I am the cat.”

       Shen Luming asked, “Am I a cat?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I don’t know, you should be a cat.”

       Shen Luming sounded at loss, “But I’m a person, I’m not a cat.”

       He was afraid that only when Shen Luming’s memory was complete would they be able to know how everything came to be the way it was now.

       He didn’t know what Shen Luming was thinking, but it could be seen that Shen Luming wanted to get close to Li Zhenruo because he felt a strange attraction, but had no intention of doing anything to Li Zhenruo.

       “I was injured and lost my memory before going to college, and I don’t remember anything from before,” Shen Luming said.

       Li Zhenruo thought for a while, “Are you a sophomore this year?”

       Shen Luming nodded.

       Yes, the time when Shen Luming lost his memory was almost exactly when Li Zhenruo had just turned into a kitten and was born from the mother cat’s belly. Maybe the body that was supposed to be Shen Luming’s had been taken over by him, and Shen Luming was not the original Shen Luming?

       Li Zhenruo was a little confused.

       Shen Luming asked him at this time, “Why did you come to me? I thought you were avoiding me.”

       For Li Zhenruo, Shen Luming had always been a thorn in his heart, even if Li Zhenran really tricked Shen Luming to go abroad, it did not mean that Shen Luming would never come back. Even if Shen Luming died, as long as his soul was still there, Li Zhenruo would have to return his body to him one day.

       In fact, even if Li Zhenran was not involved, Li Zhenruo thought that he should find Shen Luming to really solve this problem. But now, it was just a matter of getting him to make up his mind sooner.

       “I’ll give you this body back, do you want it?” Li Zhenruo asked tentatively.

       Shen Luming was stunned by his question, and hesitantly said, “I don’t want to be a cat.”

       Li Zhenruo was also stunned. He had been worried that Shen Luming would take the initiative to take his body back, but he didn’t expect that Shen Luming would dislike the deal.

       When he saw Li Zhenruo’s reaction, Shen Luming quickly explained, “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean that, I mean you are doing a good job as a cat, I think I may not be suitable for being a cat, I am living a good life now.”

       Li Zhenruo thought of the girl in the classroom, “Do you have a girlfriend?”

       Shen Luming nodded, “The college recently had an exchange to study abroad, and I wanted to go out with her.”

       “But that’s—” Li Zhenruo stopped in the middle of his sentence. He wanted to say that it was deliberately arranged by someone, but so what if it was deliberately arranged? Now it seemed to be a good opportunity for Shen Luming.

       So Li Zhenruo didn’t finish the rest of his sentence, and could only say, “You can think about it again, and if there is anything you need, you can tell me.”

       Shen Luming looked at the phone hanging around his neck, “Can you give me your contact information?”

       “Of course,” Li Zhenruo exchanged mobile phone numbers with him.

       Shen Luming said, “Although I’m also curious about what’s going on, I’m pretty sure now that I’m satisfied with my own life, and I’ll get in touch with you if I really want to.”

       Li Zhenruo nodded.

       At this time, a girl’s shout came from a distance, “Shen Luming!”

       Shen Luming said, “My girlfriend is looking for me, I’ll go first.”

       Li Zhenruo replied, “Okay.” Then he saw Shen Luming turn around and left in a hurry.

       After Shen Luming walked away and only Li Zhenruo was left. He looked up at the dense bushes and said, “Master, you can come out.”

       Xia Hongshen stood on the branch, folded his arms over his chest, and stuck his head out to look at him, “You come up.”

       Li Zhenruo looked at the tall and straight tree trunk and chose to change into a cat to climb up. As a result, when he finally climbed to Xia Hongshen’s side, he was slapped down by him.

       “Good for nothing,” Xia Hongshen scolded.

       At night, only some pairs of lovers were left by the school lotus pond. Xia Hongshen and Li Zhenruo occupied a bench and watched the lotus leaves that were gradually starting to wither by the roadside light.

       Xia Hongshen said, “It’s not bad, being able to detect my traces.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Master, your spiritual power fluctuates so obviously, how could I not notice it.”

       Xia Hongshen looked ahead, “Why do you want to return your body to him?”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t answer directly, but asked, “Master, if one day you found out that Song Jun had lied to you about many things, said he was doing it for your own good, but he wouldn’t let you know anything, and had once watched you get hurt by others, would you hate him and leave him?”

       “No,” Xia Hongshen replied without even thinking about it.

       He answered so quickly that it took a moment for Li Zhenruo to come back to his senses and asked him, “Can you not care about all this?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “I have been through too long a life, and he has always been by my side. All this is nothing to our long life.”

       “It’s nothing? Just forget about it? There’s no need to even be angry?” Li Zhenruo asked one after another.

       Xia Hongshen said to him, “You can spank him.”

       “…… What if the spanking doesn’t work?”

       “Hit again.”

       Li Zhenruo felt that he made no sense.

       Xia Hongshen said softly, “He belongs to me. Even if he betrays me, I will only find him and punish him severely, not punish myself.”

       Li Zhenruo was a little startled.

       Xia Hongshen asked him, “Lost your love, huh?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Master, it really feels strange to discuss this kind of issue with you.”

       Xia Hongshen said, “Then let’s not talk about that, and try to see how your abilities are now.”

       After he said that, Xia Hongshen raised his hand, and out of thin air, a small rat fell to the ground and darted into the grass, “Go, catch it, or you won’t be allowed to rest at night.”

       “Master!” Li Zhenruo complained, but still stood up and chased the little mouse. He didn’t need to look, anyway, it was right to run to the place where he heard the girl scream.

       Just after 11 pm, the yellow-and-white Garfield stepped on the wooden stairs and slowly climbed up the second floor of the old dormitory building with a small mouse in his mouth.

       Xia Hongshen stood at the entrance of the stairs on the second floor and looked at him. With a flick of his finger, the rat turned into a ball of air. He said, “Pass, come back to sleep.”

       Li Zhenruo had just gone up when he was picked up and rubbed by Xi Anling, “Little Gaffey!”

       Song Jun came out of the room with a bag of dried fish in his hand. He leaned in to feed Li Zhenruo, but Xia Hongshen grabbed his hand and said, “Mine.”

       Li Zhenruo was surrounded by a group of them and was suddenly a little stressed.

       Long Xing touched his head and asked, “Where’s Erhuang? Is it okay?”

       Li Zhenruo nodded.

       Song Jun quietly handed the dried fish to Feng Junyuan from behind, and Feng Junyuan directly stuffed the dried fish into Li Zhenruo’s mouth while Xia Hongshen was not paying attention.

       Li Zhenruo had no appetite, and could not bear to disappoint their kindness, so he raised his paws to cover his mouth and chewed the dried small fish.

       After a while, he heard Xia Hongshen say, “Do you think I can’t smell it?”

       Li Zhenruo hurriedly closed his mouth and chewed something, not daring to open it.

The author has something to say:

Of course it’s HE1Happy Ending, the second brother still loves Zhenruo

The original persona of Zhenruo was that he was young, proud, and indulgent. He has certain abilities, but he is hated by others without knowing it. It seems that many readers feel that Zhenruo is not strong enough and is feminine, but why is being talented in business must be someone who was scheming or a deep and steady man? His business talent is brought into play because he has a strong father

In fact, I was also very puzzled by Perfection serialization. Isn’t it the acting that the actor requires? In reality, there are movie stars who are also unsociable geeks. Why should one characterize a person based on his professional performance? What kind of character should he be? He is not a Film Emperor/business elite character…

O-ho, I’m really excited whenever author talking about some mini Perfection behind the scenes~

Chapter 85

       Li Zhenruo’s heart trembled.

       He let go of the telephone he had already touched, stood up and walked around to the desk. He stood with his back against the big desk, and said, “I’m looking for a photo, a photo of Zhao Yuqiong and the man who abandoned her.”

       Li Zhenran stood by the door and didn’t move. He said, “The photo is with Li Zhentai, don’t you remember?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Is there only one photo? If I were Sun He, something that important would definitely be re-photographed and kept. I wouldn’t have just handed it over and lost it.”

       “Sun He?” Li Zhenran’s tone was a little surprised.

       The room was still shrouded in darkness, especially when looking from Li Zhenruo to Li Zhenran’s direction, he could only see the outline of a person, but not the expression of the person.

       Li Zhenruo said, “Sun He told me that he came to you.”

       Li Zhenran heard the words and did not speak.

       Li Zhenruo took a deep breath, calmed himself down, and didn’t want to be affected by the other party’s emotions.

       In the end, Li Zhenran seemed to sigh and said, “Are you going to test me like this? Sun He can’t tell you this, because I know where Sun He is.”

       Li Zhenruo squeezed the edge of the desk tightly, “Sun He really came to you?”

       Li Zhenran said, “Sun He came to me. He asked me for money and said he would give me a photo. He said that I would definitely be interested in that photo. I said yes to him, and I gave him the money.”

       Li Zhenruo gritted his teeth, “So you have seen that photo in the first place?”

       Li Zhenran said unhurriedly, “Sun He gave me the photo, and I felt that things were not so simple. So I asked people to keep an eye on him. It turned out that he had tasted the sweetness, and turned around and contacted Li Zhentai again.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “You knew he had gone to contact Li Zhentai, but you didn’t stop him.”

       Li Zhenran was quiet for a while and admitted, “I want to see how Li Zhentai will react.”

       Li Zhenruo took a deep breath and said, “You said you wanted to see it, but you knew that Li Zhentai would never let go of this opportunity to deal with me, so while he drove me out and found someone to kill me, you kept watching from the sidelines.”

       Li Zhenran suddenly approached Li Zhenruo slowly, his footsteps were particularly loud in the darkness until he stopped in front of Li Zhenruo and reached out to touch Li Zhenruo’s face.

       His palms were warm and dry as always, but Li Zhenruo shivered for no reason.

       Li Zhenran said softly, “I didn’t know he would kill you, I was surprised and thought he was too stupid. I thought he would make Li Jianglin angry by killing you, so he would investigate this matter thoroughly, but instead, I didn’t expect it to spur Li Jianglin to give up and drop the matter.”

       Li Zhenruo felt Li Zhenran’s gentle touch and said, “You knew the truth from the beginning, but you pretended not to know anything and played me for a fool.”

       Li Zhenran said, “I said it was Li Zhentai who did it, I didn’t lie to you.”

       By now Li Zhenran still said that he didn’t lie to him. Li Zhenruo was suddenly very angry, his throat was dry and sore. He raised his head and said, “You saw the photo, then what? Where is Sun He? What’s going on in Luo Yunguang’s place?”

       Li Zhenran sighed lightly, “I didn’t think it was simple. The first thing I did was to go to Luo Yunguang and learn the truth from him. At the same time, in order to prevent Sun He from talking nonsense, I kept having people looking for him, forcing him to leave the place and not dare to come back.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “So that time later, when you took me to Luo Yunguang, you had already conspired to put on a show with him for me?”

       Li Zhenran kissed his forehead, “What he said is the truth. I asked him to tell you everything you want to know.”

       Li Zhenruo was a little dazed, “Then what he said to Li Zhentai was a deception?”

       Li Zhenran said, “Yes, I asked him to say that to Li Zhentai. I will not give Li Zhentai the opportunity to seize my weakness and threaten me back, and at the same time keep him from giving up and want to continue to struggle. That way, we can send him to his death in name only.”

       He whispered these words close to Li Zhenruo’s ear, and his airy voice burrowed into his ear, like a wet and cold insect.

       Li Zhenruo felt that he could no longer control his emotions, he raised his hand to push Li Zhenran away and wanted to stay away from him. But when he turned around, he was hugged by Li Zhenran from behind. Li Zhenran’s arms were tightly wrapped around his waist, no matter how hard he struggled, Li Zhenran would not let go. He then said in his ear, “Zhenruo, listen, I do love you. I only know the truth from the beginning to the end, I have not harmed you.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “But you lied to me.”

       Li Zhenran reached out to turn his face and said in a low voice, “Didn’t you also lie to me? In the days when I doubted your identity, I hoped you were not Li Zhenruo more than once, but I still couldn’t avoid it. After twenty years of being brothers, what kind of relationship do we had? How do you want me to invest myself to you? If you and I swap identities, can you swear you won’t do the same thing?”

       Li Zhenruo gasped and became emotional, “You’re right! I can’t swear that you don’t owe me anything, you’re just watching me die, and I might do the same thing! But so what? You lied to me for so long, and now how dare I believe that you love me?”

       Li Zhenran said, “Ask your own heart, can’t you feel that I love you?”

       Li Zhenruo tried his best to calm his breath, “From the time you knew I was Li Zhenruo, you were planning how to completely take yourself out of this matter, right? I felt very strange before, at that time it was obvious I deceived you first and left home afterwards, yet you took the initiative to come to me and ask for peace because you had already planned what was to follow, didn’t you?”

       Li Zhenran didn’t answer, in Li Zhenruo’s view, he acquiesced.

       At that time, rather than being angry at being deceived, Li Zhenran began to think about how to present the truth to Li Zhenruo. After hesitating, he finally decided to cover up all the facts related to him, and only let him know about Li Zhentai. However, what was presented to Li Zhenruo in this way was almost the complete truth.

       Anger was the disguise. After Li Zhenruo ran away from home, Li Zhenran decided to stop the disguised anger and chose to bow to Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenruo said, “Since you chose to hide from me, why did you let me see Li Zhentai alone? You should have watched me and not let me have the chance to be alone with him.”

       Li Zhenran heard the words and said, “So it was Li Zhentai. I let you see him alone because he didn’t know that I was involved in this matter from beginning to end. I want you to watch him die and complete your revenge. I didn’t think he’d say anything to you that would make you start to suspect me.”

       “No,” Li Zhenruo shook his head, “It’s not that I doubt you, it’s just I doubt that someone else was involved behind this affair.”

       Li Zhenran asked him, “So do you hate me?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Let go of me first.”

       Li Zhenran let go of his hand and helped Li Zhenruo fix the collar that had come loose in the tugging.

       Li Zhenruo said, “I don’t hate you, I’m just a little afraid of you. If I continue to be with you, I will never be able to get rid of doubts and fears. I don’t know which of your words is true and which is false. Even now, I began to suspect that the truth is not so simple, there is a bigger situation behind it, and I don’t know it even if I’m in it.”

       “Zhenruo,” Li Zhenran reached out to touch his face.

       Li Zhenruo turned his head to avoid it. He walked towards the door of the office, and finally stopped by the door. He reached out and grabbed the collar around his neck and ripped it off. The chain buckle behind the collar was pulled off, and a bloodstain was also strangled on the back of the neck.

       “This collar,” Li Zhenruo said, “I know it has a tracker, but I never took it off. I thought it was more of a memory of the past between us, and it always lost its practical significance, but now I’m not so sure anymore. I’m not your cat, and you can’t tie me up.”

       After he said that, he threw the collar in the direction of Li Zhenran.

       The collar hit Li Zhenran’s chest and then landed on the ground with a crisp sound.

       Li Zhenruo opened the door and walked out, while Li Zhenran crouched down to pick up the collar slowly with his hands.

       When he came out of Li Zhenran’s office, Li Zhenruo realised that it was still dark outside in the corridor. He groped for the direction of the elevator. But after two steps he remembered that the power had gone out and the lift had naturally stopped, so he turned around and groped in the direction of the stairwell.

       The staircase was so pitch black and there was no light at all coming in.

       He felt that his head was spinning, so he changed back to the shape of a cat, and his vision suddenly became clear before running downstairs. He just kept running out of Yunlin’s building, Li Zhenruo ran all the way forward on the brightly lit street.

       The cold wind of the night kept blowing through his body, and his aching mind was gradually clearing up. When he stopped and turned around, Yunlin’s building had disappeared from sight.

       He slowed his pace and raised his head like many arrogant cats.

       When he was still a complete human, love was just a spice of life for him. He believed that the goal of life as a man should be a career; after losing his life, his goal in life was to find his murderer and to take revenge; when he got his revenge, he wanted to live longer to accompany Li Zhenran. He admitted that he was a little addicted to love and could not extricate himself from it. He understood the taste of love beyond the sky, and other things seemed less important.

       Until now.

       When he was standing at the intersection and waiting for the red light, several people around him were looking at him. Li Zhenruo’s mobile phone was put on a rope by him, so it could be hung around his neck when he turned into a cat.

       A young man seemed to have followed him for a while, and when he saw him alone as a cat, he knelt down and pretended to pet his head while trying to get the phone around his neck.

       Li Zhenruo bit his hand mercilessly then ran into the crowd and ran away.

       When he saw the red light turn green and the pedestrians hurrying forward, Li Zhenruo thought to himself, should his story be over now? Rather than being a cat, he still wanted to be a complete person.

       He had already fulfilled his wish with this body, so it was better to return the body to the original owner now and to reincarnate as soon as possible. He didn’t need an overly prominent family, even if he was a child of a poor man, to work step by step for what he wanted was the best life.

The author has something to say:

I’ve got a shield in front of me, come on, attack me, I’ll pretend I didn’t see it

Can you trust someone again after being deceived so bad that you begin to question everything? I feel like I just witnessed something real dark… about Zhenran… and how calculative he is…
Also I just read an NU comment saying that the people here are treating the cat so bad. I agree. But don’t call PETA please (ಥ_ಥ)

Chapter 84

       Li Zhenruo seemed a little disoriented.

       He stood on the side of the street with a wry smile, watching an empty taxi drive past and forgetting to reach out to stop it.

       In fact, things were not necessarily what he imagined them to be. At that time, Sun He decided to go to Li Zhenran. Whether he went in the end or did not find it, and whether there was a change in the middle, no one could tell.

       If Li Zhenruo were calmer, he should sort out all the possibilities in an orderly manner, and then rule them out one by one.

       But as soon as the matter involved Li Zhenran, he found himself in a mess, just like when he showed the man a photo just now, why was his hand shaking? He just needs to accept it, right? But he just couldn’t calm down, just like his current self, except for the urge to go back and question Li Zhenran that supported him. He couldn’t think of anything else for the time being.

       Li Zhenruo walked to the small fountain in the square and sat down. When he looked down and saw his reflection in the pool, he reached out and touched the thin collar on his neck.

       The collar had a tracker. Li Zhenruo had always known it but didn’t pay much attention to it. The two of them had come to this point. The collar worn around his neck was more like a necklace that Li Zhenran gave him and had long since lost sight of its other significance.

       But now Li Zhenruo was a little confused, and he wanted to take off the collar.

       Whether to ask Li Zhenran directly or to continue to find out all the truth alone. But was the truth he had found out really the truth? How many of them had told the truth and how many had told lies seemed hard to tell by now.

       Also, had Li Zhenran been staring at him and monitoring him? Li Zhenruo raised his head, feeling as if he had a pair of eyes looking at her in a trance. He shook his head vigorously and thought to himself that he had died once, so how hard it was to stand the blow? If he was really scared, he might as well let go of the matter since Li Zhentai was already dead anyway, but he chose to look into it, so he had to get to the position where he knew the truth about everything.

       Everyone from the Li family went to Li Zhentai’s funeral, and the entire Li house was empty. It seemed that echoes could be heard when someone spoke.

       Li Zhenruo directly turned over the gate in the form of a cat and went in.

       The doorman saw his hairy buttocks falling out without turning over for a long time, so he kindly came out and gave him a hand. Li Zhenruo, who had been touched by his butt, caught his tail in panic, looked back at the guard, and moved his mouth in fear.

       He originally wanted to say thank you, but when he opened his mouth, he found that he could only meow, so he didn’t say anything.

       Dinner was cat food. Li Zhenruo went back to the room on the third floor early to stay. Later, she turned over all the cabinets and drawers in Li Zhenran’s room but found nothing useful.

       Later, he heard movement downstairs, it should be that they came back after attending the funeral to send off the guests.

       Li Zhenruo hid in the room and didn’t go out. He went to the bathroom to wash his face with clean water. The sound of the water drowned out the sound of Li Zhenran opening the door and when he looked up, he saw Li Zhenran standing behind him in the mirror.

       Li Zhenran squeezed his arms with both hands, lowered his head and gently kissed his neck.

       The drops of water dripped down Li Zhenruo’s face.

       Li Zhenran’s kiss turned into sucking, and the force was not light. After sucking a mark on his neck, he raised his head and asked in his ear, “Where have you been today?”

       His voice was low, and heat got into his ear holes.

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t help shrinking his neck, he said, “Go out and walk around.”

       Li Zhenran let go of his arm and asked, “Do you want to take a bath together?”

       Li Zhenruo said: “I’ve taken my bath, you can take yours.”

       Li Zhenran went to run water to take a bath. Li Zhenruo walked out of the bathroom and sat beside the bed quietly listening to the sound of water inside.

       When Li Zhenran came out of the shower, he saw Li Zhenruo lying on the bed playing with his mobile phone. He walked over and sat beside him and asked, “What are you playing?”

       Li Zhenruo put away the phone and said, “It’s nothing, I’m just thinking about what I should do in the future?”

       “What should you do?” Li Zhenran said.

       Li Zhenruo raised her head, “I can’t be kept as a cat by you all my life. Since Li Zhentai is gone, shouldn’t I start my own life?”

       Li Zhenran asked him, “What kind of life do you want to live? Are you going to study?”

       “Study what!” Li Zhenruo refused without thinking, “I have read books for so many years, and I don’t want to read any more books.” After he turned into a cat, he tried his best to find out the truth, and there was no such thing as an opportunity to develop a new hobby.

       Li Zhenran heard the words and said, “Then come back to Yunlin to help me.”

       “Huh?” Li Zhenruo seemed a little surprised.

       Li Zhenran said, “Don’t you want to?”

       Li Zhenruo thought about it seriously, “That’s not bad, you’ve been doing too much recently, I’ll be your assistant.”

       Li Zhenran smiled and said, “Okay.”

       Hua Yibang asked the logistics department to add a new set of desks and chairs to Li Zhenran’s large office.

       Originally, Li Zhenran asked to put the new desk in his office, but Li Zhenruo said, “Are you kidding? Do you want to go to work properly?” He himself asked for the desk to be placed in the small office outside, face to face with Hua Yibang.

       It just so happened that both of them were Li Zhenran’s assistants, formally a work assistant and a life assistant, which was completely reasonable.

       When Li Zhenzi came over from his office, he opened the door and saw Li Zhenruo with his legs crossed on the desk, looking at the documents, shook his head and said, “Second brother’s life is too corrupt.”

       Hua Yibang stood up, “Mr. Li the third.”

       Li Zhenruo glanced at him, “Isn’t Su Yao more eye-catching on your side?”

       Li Zhenzi said, “How is Su Yao the same as you?”

       Li Zhenruo smiled, “If you have the ability, go ask Miss Yu to come back.”

       Li Zhenzi’s expression changed instantly, pointed at Li Zhenruo with his finger, and asked Hua Yibang, “Is the second brother here?”

       Hua Yibang answered, “Yes.”

       Li Zhenzhi then pushed open the door of the office inside and entered without waiting for him to give notice. He said, “Second brother, I have something to discuss with you about Qijiang,” while reaching out and closing the door behind him.

       Li Zhenruo saw that he would not come out for a while, and dragged his chair to sit next to Hua Yibang.

       Hua Yibang was inexplicable, “Is something wrong?”

       Li Zhenruo raised her arm and put it on his shoulder, “Xiao Hua.”

       Hua Yibang glanced down at his hand, his expression became vigilant, “What?”

       Li Zhenruo looked up at the fluorescent tube overhead, “I have a mother.”

       Hua Yibang was silent for a while, then continued, “I have one too.”

       Li Zhenruo smiled, and then said, “She is already dead.”

       Hua Yibang said, “I’m sorry.”

       Li Zhenruo patted him on the shoulder, “There’s nothing to be sorry about, but there was a man who used to have a crush on my mother who took pictures of her and her ex-boyfriend and slandered her reputation everywhere.”

       Hua Yibang was stunned, “What’s going on?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Do you know Sun He?”

       When he asked this question, he looked at Hua Yibang without blinking, trying to see whether he knew or didn’t know his expression.

       In the end, Hua Yibang’s expression didn’t waver at all, he blinked, his eyelashes trembled slightly, and said, “I don’t know.”

       Li Zhenruo continued: “I’m afraid that he will show Ran ge the photo and let Ran ge misunderstand my mother.”

       Hearing this, Hua Yibang frowned slightly and said, “Then you should ask Zhenran. I believe he won’t misunderstand anything after listening to others at will.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “So you don’t know Sun He.”

       Hua Yibang shook his head, “I don’t know.”

       Li Zhenruo found that it was difficult for him to tell whether Hua Yibang was telling the truth or a lie. He was just thinking that maybe Hua Yibang would tell Li Zhenran that he had asked about Sun He.

       What would he do to Li Zhenran then? Ask him who Sun He was and that he had never met him? Or would he just show him the truth? Or maybe tell him he knew there was something else he was hiding.

       Li Zhenruo didn’t want to question Li Zhenran, but he was vaguely expecting Li Zhenran to come forward and confess to him.

       When Li Zhenzi came out of the door, Li Zhenruo was still leaning on Hua Yibang’s shoulders.

       “What are you doing?” asked Li Zhenran, who followed Li Zhenzi out.

       Li Zhenruo took back his hand nonchalantly and said, “Nothing.”

       Li Zhenran said, “Move the desk in.”

       “Huh?” Li Zhenzi was also stunned for a moment, then glanced at Li Zhenruo amusingly, shook his hand and said, “I’ll go first.”

       Li Zhenruo’s desk was still forcibly moved into Li Zhenran’s office.

       He sat diagonally across from Li Zhenran, and Li Zhenruo said uncomfortably, “Have you ever thought that this way you don’t even have any privacy, I can hear whatever is going on in the company.”

       Li Zhenran said indifferently, “It’s okay, I have nothing to hide from you.”

       Li Zhenruo leaned back, folded his arms around his chest, smiled and said, “Really?”

       Li Zhenran replied, “Yes.”

       In the afternoon, Li Zhenran received a phone call temporarily, someone invited him to dinner in the evening.

       It was someone he was dealing with on business and it was at a crucial time for the Li family, so Li Zhenran was not in a good position to refuse, so he agreed on the appointment with the boss for a meal.

       He said to Li Zhenruo, “You come along too.”

       Li Zhenruo was burying his head in sorting out a document. He didn’t look at Li Zhenran and said, “I’m not going, you can go with Hua Yibang.”

       Li Zhenran came over and touched his head, “So serious?”

       Li Zhenruo bit the pen holder, “When I finish sorting out the documents, I will take a taxi back by myself.”

       Li Zhenran said, “You don’t want to socialize, do you? Is that how you’re going to be my assistant?”

       Li Zhenruo smiled and pulled his tie, pulled him down and kissed his face, “I have the privilege.”

       Li Zhenran also smiled, touched his hair and said, “Call me when you’re done, and I’ll arrange for a driver to take you back.”

       “Okay,” Li Zhenruo replied.

       It was inconvenient to be late for the entertainment over there. Li Zhenran talked to Hua Yibang to see the driver prepare the car, put the trenchcoat on his wrist, and hurriedly walked outside with Hua Yibang.

       Li Zhenruo really bowed his head and carefully sorted out the documents. His dinner was still the takeaway that Li Zhenran called directly for him.

       After he finished the documents, Li Zhenruo glanced at the time and it was already eight o’clock at night. He stretched, stood up and walked around Li Zhenran’s office, then sat down in front of his big desk and pulled open the drawers one by one to look through the contents.

       He wished he could find something, but he also wished he could find nothing.

       When he turned to the bottom drawer, the lights in the room suddenly went out without warning, and the computer seemed to automatically shut down. Li Zhenruo raised his head, wondering whether it was a power outage or if there was a problem with the wiring that had tripped the circuit.

       The world outside the window was still brightly lit. After getting familiar with the darkness in the room, Li Zhenruo could gradually see the outline of the room. When he was about to reach for the phone and call the security office on the first floor to check the situation, he suddenly saw the door and didn’t know what to do. When the time opened, there was a man standing by the door, with a tall and straight outline.

       Li Zhenruo said, “Li Zhenran?” In fact, he didn’t see that person’s face clearly, but just by looking at the outline of his body, he intuited that it was Li Zhenran.

       Sure enough, the person standing by the door said, “What are you looking for?” It was Li Zhenran’s voice.

       Li Zhenruo did not answer him.

       Li Zhenran asked again, “Why don’t you ask me what you want to find? As long as it is what you want, I will give it to you.”

Chapter 83

       Now that it have come to this point, there was no point for Wang Dong to continue hiding it.

       He looked a little sad, “It’s been five years since I last saw Sun He, we had a meal together with his girlfriend at the time. We didn’t see each other again, and we lost contact over time. I saved the phone numbers of him and his girlfriend, but his number has become an empty number after I called him, and I don’t know if his girlfriend’s number has been changed or not, and I don’t even know if she is still his girlfriend or not.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Dong ge, please help me contact Sun He. This matter has nothing to do with you. I will immediately notify Mr. Luo of Sun He’s whereabouts.”

       Wang Dong can only say, “Then I will try.”

       Wang Dong used his mobile phone to find the number that he had saved at the time. He dialled it for a while before a woman answered the phone, but she didn’t seem to know who he was anymore, so she asked coldly, “Who are you?”

       “Sister-in-law1Wang Dong calling her this because he considered Sun He as a close brother, thus his girlfriend becomes the sister in law,” Wang Dong said quickly, “I’m Sun ge’s friend, Wang Dong, do you remember me?”

       The woman froze for a moment, “Oh—hello, is something wrong?”

       Wang Dong said, “Sister-in-law, I have something for Sun ge, but I can’t get through. Can you tell me his current phone number?”

       When he finished speaking, Wang Dong couldn’t help but look at Li Zhenruo, who nodded to him.

       The woman said, “Are you looking for Sun He? You can’t find him.”

       Wang Dong was taken aback, “What do you mean?”

       The woman said, “He owes people money and ran away a year ago to hide from debts.”

       Wang Dong asked, “Can you tell me where he went? Or give me his contact information.”

       The woman said, “I don’t know either. He didn’t say where he went, and he didn’t contact me.”

       Wang Dong suddenly didn’t know what to do and looked at Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenruo felt that the woman might not be telling the truth. Sun He might owe someone money and go out to hide the debt, but where he went, it is predicted that the woman knew and was connected. Otherwise, the two would have broken up long ago.

       It’s just that there was no need to entangle this woman too much at this time. Li Zhenruo said to Wang Dong, “Ask if there are any friends who are familiar with Sun He and say that they want to give him benefits and are eager to contact him.”

       After all, he was the one who worked with Luo Yunguang back then. Although Wang Dong was honest, his brain was bright. He said, “Sister-in-law, do you think Sun ge has any friends who might know his whereabouts. Our old boss is back and wants to do something with us.”

       When Luo Yunguang dismissed a few of them back then, he actually treated everyone quite well, at least they were given a sum of money that was enough to seal their mouths.

       Wang Dong lived in this old house which didn’t look too good, but he still lived a good life. While Sun He was too profligate, and later lost all his money when he got into the gambling habit.

       Sun He’s girlfriend knew that the boss he used to be with was very rich. When Sun He and Wang Dong went out for a drink before, she heard a lot about their glorious past, so now that she heard Wang Dong mention it, and after a while of silence, she said, “Then I’ll give you his buddy’s number. You can call and ask.”

       Wang Dong smiled and said, “Thank you, sister-in-law.”

       The woman said, “Thank you, Sun He has had a hard time these years. To think that any of you brothers have any way to think of him, I should be the one who thanked you.”

       Wang Dong took a piece of paper and wrote down a phone number and name, then hung up.

       Li Zhenruo picked up the note and said, “Wait, Sun He’s wife will definitely contact this person to tell him about the situation, and you help call him out a little later.”

       Wang Dong hesitated for a moment and asked, “What exactly is Luo ge going to do with Sun He?”

       Li Zhenruo smiled slightly when he heard the words, “Dong ge, you can rest assured. Boss Li is a serious businessman and won’t do anything illegal.”

       Wang Dong finally nodded, “I understand.”

       They waited for almost half an hour before Wang Dong got in touch with the person who claimed to be Sun He’s friend. The man said that he was not in the city now, and asked Wang Dong to meet in two days. Wang Dong said yes.

       Two days later, it happened to be the day when Li Zhentai was buried.

       At that time, Li Zhenran will definitely not have time, and it was convenient for Li Zhenruo to act alone.

       So far, Li Zhenruo had no plans to tell Li Zhenran about this. He was a little disturbed, but not at all disturbed.

       Li Zhentai was dead.

       He was very sure that the culprits who were behind the scenes and exposed his affairs were Li Zhentai and Zhu Kai, and the murderer who killed him was Li Zhentai alone.

       He could ignore the first thing because it was a fact. Although the people behind it didn’t have any well intention, he must try to accept the fact that was revealed.

       But Li Zhentai’s heartlessness and ruthlessness was something he could not forgive.

       Now that Li Zhentai was dead, it sounded like the most likely beneficiaries of this incident were only Li Zhenran or Li Zhenzi, and perhaps Zhu Kai.

       Along the way, Li Zhenruo had received too much information from them, and he had no way to distinguish which ones were true and which were false. So he let himself do the rest, and decided not to rely on Li Zhenran anymore.

       Of course, his connections were not as wide as Li Zhenran’s now, and he didn’t have much money in his hands, so it must be a lot of trouble to do things. However, he got a good advantage already. As he thought of this, Li Zhenruo was unwilling to continue to think. He was a little tired and planned to go back to rest.

       In the evening, Li Zhenran came back quite late. Li Zhentai paid someone to keep watch besides the coffin. Neither Li Zhenran nor Li Zhenzi stayed overnight.

       Li Zhenran felt tired after a busy day, so he filled the bathtub with water and lay down, raised his head and closed his eyes.

       After a while, he heard movement by the tub and saw his cat clawing at the edge of the tub to slowly slide himself in.

       The bathtub in Li Zhenran’s room was not big. Li Zhenruo didn’t want to squeeze two people in it, so he maintained the shape of a cat, hugged Li Zhenran and climbed up on one leg to avoid falling into the water.

       Li Zhenran lay motionless, and ignored him.

       Li Zhenruo finally lay down on his chest, resting his head on his shoulder to breathe comfortably.

       Li Zhenran then touched his head.

       After lying down for a while, Li Zhenruo felt that the skin of his whole body was about to wrinkle, so he got up and stepped on Li Zhenran’s chest and wanted to jump out.

       Li Zhenran’s chest was soaked with warm water. When he took off, the soles of his feet slipped, his head hit the edge of the bathtub, and he fell into the water.

       Li Zhenruo struggled to get up. He clung to the edge of the smooth bathtub and stuck out his front paws to jump out at once, but someone pulls his tail from behind and made him fell into the water again.

       Li Zhenruo stuck his head out of the water, shook the water on his head vigorously, and glared at Li Zhenran angrily.

       Li Zhenran’s face showed a satisfied and lazy smile, tilted his head against the edge of the bathtub and closed his eyes.

       Li Zhenruo’s face was red. He finally climbed into the bathtub and turned out, but it didn’t end happily, he jumped out and rolled on the ground before getting up and running outside.

       Li Zhenran came out of the shower and saw that Li Zhenruo had transformed back into a human form, sitting on the bed naked cross-legged and wiping his hair with a towel.

       When he saw Li Zhenran looking at him, he said, “This way the water dried faster.”

       Li Zhenran walked over to him and sat down, “I can blow it for you with a hairdryer.”

       Li Zhenruo liked Li Zhenran helping him dry his hair very much, which was warm and comfortable. However, he still refused at this time, “You are tired today, rest early.”

       Li Zhenran grabbed his towel, wiped his hair, and lay down on the bed even though it was not completely dry.

       Li Zhenruo looked at him sideways, “You are afraid to stay there at night for fear of Li Zhentai’s suddenly coming back from death right, right?”

       Li Zhenran smiled, “I don’t want to keep guarding his coffin.”

       Li Zhenruo pulled his arm, “Get up, your hair isn’t dry yet.”

       Li Zhenran was not pulled by him, but grabbed his wrist with his backhand and pulled him into his arms, asking him, “Where did you go this afternoon?”

       Li Zhenruo rubbed, found a comfortable position to lie down, and said, “Go to see Master.”

       “Looking for your Master again,” Li Zhenran said in a deep voice.

       Li Zhenruo smiled, “Are you jealous? My Master had a wife, and he likes him very much, don’t worry.”

       “Hmph!” Li Zhenran raised his arms and put them on the back of his neck.

       Li Zhenruo was still smirking.

       Li Zhenran said to him, “You said that guy.”

       “Huh?” Li Zhenruo looked at him puzzled.

       Li Zhenran said, “You said you occupied the body of that person.”

       He hadn’t seen Shen Luming for a long time, and when Li Zhenran mentioned it, Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but be stunned.

       Li Zhenran continued, “I don’t know if there is a better way to solve this matter for you. I can only ask people to keep an eye at him. If he never remembers this matter, it should not hinder you.”

       Li Zhenruo hesitated, “My master said that he would temporarily help me seal his memory, but I don’t know how long it will be.”

       Li Zhenran said, “I asked him to arrange for him to study abroad.”

       “Ah?” Li Zhenruo was stunned.

       Li Zhenran said, “I asked people to contact their colleges and set up scholarships to support outstanding students to study in schools in the United States or Canada. The default winner is him.”

       Li Zhenruo was a little surprised, “Are you going to send him away?”

       Li Zhenran nodded, “Maybe after leaving this environment, he will never be stimulated to think of anything.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t expect Li Zhenran to do so many things secretly, and he couldn’t judge whether it was suitable or not, but at this moment, he had to admit that Li Zhenran was more thoughtful than he thought in many things.

       In the end, he said, “I haven’t reached that stage yet. Nothing is certain. Maybe this body is something he doesn’t want anymore?”

       Li Zhenran smiled, “That’s the best.”

       Li Zhentai was buried two days later.

       Li Jianglin got up from the hospital bed, dressed neatly and attended Li Zhentai’s funeral with the help of Zhu Kai, but Li Zhenruo did not appear.

       Instead of Wang Dong, he was the one who went to see that friend of Sun He.

       The meeting place was about a small square in the east of the city. When Li Zhenruo arrived, he saw the man squatting not far from the trash can smoking a cigarette. He was a middle-aged man with an unremarkable appearance.

       Li Zhenruo bought a pack of soft cloud smoke at a nearby store, walked over and patted the middle-aged man on the shoulder, “Big brother.”

       The middle-aged man turned to look at him, “Who are you?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “We made an appointment on the phone. I am a friend of Sun He.”

       The middle-aged man said, “Are you kidding? Aren’t you twenty this year? You’re not the one who called me!”

       Li Zhenruo squatted down beside him with a smile, knocked out a cigarette from the cigarette case and handed it to him.

       The middle-aged man glanced at the cigarette, took it without saying a word, and then looked up and down at Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenruo handed the whole pack of cigarettes to the middle-aged man, “Ge, you keep it, I don’t smoke.”

       The middle-aged man was silent for a while this time, reached out to catch the cigarette, and asked him, “Who are you?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “I’m really Sun He’s friend, but unlike Dong ge, I’m his boss’ current subordinate. Speaking of which, everyone works for the same boss.”

       The middle-aged man asked, “Are you looking for him?”

       Li Zhenruo shook his head, “I’m not looking for him, I know it’s not convenient for him now. I just want to ask you if you know something about him.”

       The middle-aged man looked cautious, “What’s the matter?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Actually, it’s also about his past boss, ge, you can say it at your convenience, and forget it if it’s inconvenient.”

       The middle-aged man glanced at him, “If you have something to say, don’t be long-winded.”

       Li Zhenruo smiled and asked him, “Sun ge owed someone a gambling debt to escape?”

       The middle-aged man said, “Yeah, didn’t you know it long ago?”

       Li Zhenruo continued, “Before he went out to avoid debts, did he try other methods to make money, such as extortion?”

       The middle-aged man frowned, “What do you want to say?”

       Li Zhenruo said sincerely, “Ge, what I said is what I want to say. I don’t know if Sun ge has mentioned his past boss to you?”

       The middle-aged man smoked a cigarette and said, “He said he used to work at Yunlin, and Li Jianglin was his boss.”

       Li Zhenruo chatted with him patiently, “Do you believe it?”

       The middle-aged man grunted, “Whether to believe it or not, it’s an old story.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Then has he tried to ask the Li family for money?”

       The middle-aged man seemed to be thinking, and after a while, he said, “What? Your boss wants to retaliate against him?”

       Li Zhenruo shook his head, “We know everything our big boss should know, now it’s my own little boss who wants to make sure of something, don’t worry, Sun ge has left and no one will try to bring him back. It’s better to say there are some issues between my little boss and my big boss.”

       “What kind of little boss, big boss,” the middle-aged man said with a look of disgust, “One day, I flipped through a magazine with him, and there was a photo of the young master of the Li family. At that time, Sun He said about him. I’m going to borrow some money from this young master.”

       Li Zhenruo asked, “He already owed gambling debts at that time, didn’t he?”

       The middle-aged man nodded.

       Li Zhenruo thought to himself that Sun He owed a gambling debt, saw Li Zhentai’s photo in a magazine, and suddenly remembered the photo he stole from Zhao Yuqiong, and wanted to use the photo to go to Li Zhentai to ask for money.

       This should be the biggest possibility, but why didn’t Sun He choose to come to him, but to Li Zhentai?

       Also, the mystery was now thrown back to Luo Yunguang, why does he want to deceive both ends?

       He felt a little confused, Li Zhenruo asked again, “Do you know where Sun He is now?”

       “I don’t know,” the middle-aged man said.

       However, Li Zhenruo guessed that he should know, but he didn’t want to say it.

       Without insisting on asking, Li Zhenruo stood up and said, “Thank you, ge.”

       “That’s it?” The middle-aged man was also a little surprised, thinking he wanted to ask more, at least to trick him into telling Sun He’s whereabouts.

       Li Zhenruo smiled, “That’s it, thank you.”

       He turned around to leave, but suddenly stopped, took out his mobile phone and searched the Internet to find a photo of Li Zhentai for the middle-aged man to see, “Ge, is he the young master of the Li family you were talking about at the time?”

       The middle-aged man glanced at it and said affirmatively, “It’s not him.”

       Li Zhenruo was stunned, “It isn’t him?”

       The middle-aged man said, “It’s a man who looks like a star.”

       Looks like a star? Li Zhenran or Li Zhenzi?

       Li Zhenruo took his phone back and started searching for Li Zhenzi’s photos, and then showed it to the middle-aged man, “Is he?”

       The middle-aged man looked at it for a while longer, “No, this is a bit like a foreigner, right?”

       Li Zhenruo’s finger on the phone trembled slightly. He found Li Zhenran’s photo, took a deep breath and put the screen in front of the middle-aged man, “This person?”

       The middle-aged man nodded at a glance, “It’s him.”

Chapter 82

       Li Zhentai still died, from hemorrhagic shock caused by a gunshot wound.

       He might have breathed a sigh of relief when the police arrived, but he did not survive the journey of being rushed to the hospital.

       The real cause of his death had not been announced to the public. The media was suppressed by the Li family, and there was no negative report on Li Zhentai, so everyone thought that he had been kidnapped. There were some other speculations about the cause of his death, but it was just not made explicit.

       Everyone felt that the Li family had a bad year, the younger son was robbed and killed, and now it was the eldest son’s turn to be kidnapped and torn apart.

       When Li Jianglin heard the news, he sat on the bed and said, “You only have yourself to blame.” But after that, he kept his eyes closed and looked haggard.

       The Li family held a funeral ceremony for Li Zhentai, which was organized by Li Zhenran.

       In the funeral home, a large black and white photo of Li Zhentai was hung on the wall, with elegiac couplets to the left and right, and a crystal coffin in the middle.

       The person was already dead, there was no trial, and Li Zhentai did not have to hang the title of criminal. Li Zhenruo was wearing a black suit, sitting in the distance looking at Li Zhentai’s body, and seeing the guests who came to pay his respects bowing and burning paper for him. He thought to himself, would these people know, that if Li Zhentai didn’t want to kill his biological parents, he wouldn’t have to die? His life probably won’t be enough to make up for the sins he’s committed.

       Li Jianglin didn’t show up because of his poor health. As family members, besides Li Zhenran and Li Zhenzi, there was also Wen Chun, who hurried back from abroad.

       Wen Chun and Li Zhentai were still husband and wife after all. She stood aside in mourning, but there was not much sad expression on his face.

       On the day Wen Chun came back, she was sitting on the edge of Li Jianglin’s bed, and Li Jianglin said to her, “I’m sorry, it was my senseless insistence that hurt you. Since everyone is gone, you should live your life well.”

       Wen Chun didn’t say anything, just nodded as if to comfort Li Jianglin.

       Li Zhenran walked over to Li Zhenruo and handed him a bottle of water, “If you don’t want to stay here, go back first.”

       Li Zhenruo took the water, unscrewed the lid and took a sip, “I’m fine.” He screwed the lid on and said at the same time, “It’s good that Li Zhentai died like this.”

       He was not willing to kill Li Zhentai himself, nor did he want Li Zhenran to do it.

       At this time, they saw Li Zhentai’s biological parents.

       He didn’t know if it was an illusion, but Li Zhenruo felt that her hair was grey when she saw the old lady last time, but now it’s all grey.

       Security guards stopped them and asked for their identities.

       Li Zhenran went over to let the security go and invited them in. The husband and wife experienced that kind of thing, and they no longer insisted on recognizing the son. They just came to burn two pieces of paper money, and they left with each other’s arms.

       Looking at their backs, Li Zhenruo suddenly felt a little dazed, as if everything was over, but at the same time, it wasn’t.

       There were still guests coming here, and Li Zhenran couldn’t get out for a while.

       Li Zhenruo left the funeral home alone, and when he was about to take a taxi by the side of the road, the phone in his pocket rang.

       He had used this phone only a handful of times, as long as it was inconvenient to carry, and he had not yet been able to conjure a phone out of thin air, so there were very few people who will call his number.

       Li Zhenruo glanced at the caller ID, and the name showed Yan Xiujie.

       Li Zhenruo kept in touch with this former assistant of his. After listening to Li Zhentai mention the person named Sun He, Li Zhenruo thought about it for a long time and planned to ask Yan Xiujie to help him find out who worked under Luo Yunguang in the past except for Sun He.

       He asked Yan Xiujie to try to start with the company’s old files. Luo Yunguang was an employee of Yunlin, and the people who worked under him were probably also under Yunlin’s name and receive Yunlin’s salary. Although what they did was not necessarily related to Yunlin’s business, it was more likely to be Li Jianglin’s private affairs.

       However, the results of Yan Xiujie’s investigation were smoother than he expected.

       When the call was connected, Yan Xiujie told him that there was indeed a man named Sun He in the company’s old personnel file. He was in the logistics department at the time. There were two men at the same time as Sun He, one named Wang Dong and the other named Kong Yuxia.

       No one knew where Sun He was now, but Yan Xiujie found his current address through the address of Wang Dong registered in the old file.

       Li Zhenruo said, “Give me his address.”

       Yan Xiujie replied, “Okay, I’ll send it to your phone.”

       Li Zhenruo hung up the phone and took a deep breath. He stood on the side of the road without moving and waited for Yan Xiujie’s text message.

       Soon, the address from Yan Xiujie was received on the mobile phone, including the mobile phone number and address of Wang Dong.

       In fact, compared to this Wang Dong, Li Zhenruo wanted to find Luo Yunguang more at first.

       But recalling the sincere attitude of Luo Yunguang when he said those words to Li Zhenran before, Li Zhenruo was still not sure which of his words was true and which was false. He was afraid that he would be disturbed by Luo Yunguang again, so he would rather not see Luo Yunguang.

       Li Zhenruo waved and called a car, and asked the driver to take him to Wang Dong’s current address.

       That address was a district in the city centre. The house was a bit old but not broken, and the nearby housing prices were not cheap.

       Li Zhenruo got out of the car and gave the money, walked into the unit where Wang Dong lived, stepped into the door of the unit, and went upstairs slowly while changing his clothes.

       He changed into a shirt suit and tie, and his hair was brushed up to make him look more mature.

       He stood in front of the door number displayed on the address, and Li Zhenruo gently knocked on the door.

       He heard footsteps coming from inside, and after more than ten seconds, a middle-aged woman opened the door from inside and looked at him vigilantly, “Who are you looking for?”

       Li Zhenruo asked politely, “Is Mr. Wang Dong there?”

       The woman hesitated for a second, then turned her head and shouted inside, “Wang Dong, someone is looking for you!”

       Soon, Li Zhenruo saw a short, bald middle-aged man coming out of the inner room. He looked at Li Zhenruo up and down, “Who are you?”

       Li Zhenruo smiled, “Mr. Luo asked me to visit you.”

       Wang Dong’s expression became surprised, “You—”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Can I go in and talk?”

       Wang Dong said quickly, “Oh, come in and sit.”

       He invited Li Zhenruo in, let him sit on the sofa, picked up the cigarette case from the coffee table, took out a cigarette and handed it to him, but he didn’t remember to ask his wife to make tea for him.

       Wang Dong’s wife went to the kitchen.

       Li Zhenruo declined his cigarette and said, “No need, I don’t smoke.”

       Wang Dong then lit one for himself, took two sips nervously, and asked, “Guang ge asked you to come to me?”

       Li Zhenruo nodded and said, “Dong ge don’t be nervous, Mr. Luo said that he had not seen his brother for many years. He should have come to visit in person, but Mr. Li has not been well recently, so he has to stay by Mr. Li’s side to take care of him. .”

       Wang Dong was stunned when he heard the words, “He went back to Mr. Li?”

       Li Zhenruo smiled and said, “Yes, Mr. Luo has worked hard for Mr. Li for so many years, and Mr. Li was a sentimental person. When he was not in good health two months ago, he sent someone to invite Mr. Luo.”

       Wang Dong took a big puff of smoke, “I don’t know what Guang ge would asked you to do to me?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Something happened to the Li family recently. Dong ge must have heard of it, right?”

       Wang Dong subconsciously glanced in the direction of the kitchen. His wife was concentrating on preparing dinner, and then he said, “I know the eldest young master of the Li family is dead, and the youngest master of the Li family was gone last year.”

       Li Zhenruo sighed and nodded, “Then does Dong ge know that this matter is actually related to Sun He.”

       “Sun He?” Wang Dong looked a little surprised.

       Li Zhenruo took out his mobile phone and showed Wang Dong the photo of his biological parents above. He said, “I don’t know if Dong ge has any impression of this photo?”

       Wang Dong’s face became strange, but he did not answer Li Zhenruo’s words.

       Li Zhenruo could see that Wang Dong was actually an honest person, and his reaction also clearly told Li Zhenruo one thing, he knew this photo, which means he knew what happened back then.

       So Li Zhenruo lowered his voice and said, “Don’t be nervous Dong ge. Since Mr. Luo asked me to come to you, I naturally knew about those things back then.”

       Wang Dong looked at him.

       Li Zhenruo said, “This is a photo of Zhao Yuqiong and her boyfriend, right? Do you know where the photo is now?”

       Wang Dong hesitated for a long time, he said, “This photo should be at Sun He’s place.”

       Li Zhenruo looked at him, “Why is it with Sun He?”

       Wang Dong’s expression was tangled, and after a long silence, he said, “That Miss Zhao Yuqiong passed away, we went to clean up the house for her.”

       “You, Sun He, and Kong Yuxia, isn’t it?”

       When Wang Dong heard that Li Zhenruo even mentioned Kong Yuxia’s name, he believed him more in his heart and said, “Sun He has always liked that Miss Zhao. I stopped him when he wanted to take this photo but he didn’t listen.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “You didn’t tell Mr. Luo later, did you?”

       Wang Dong suddenly became nervous again, “I didn’t mean to, I just—”

       “It’s okay,” Li Zhenruo smiled gently, “After so many years, Mr. Luo knows everyone well, and he didn’t ask me to question you about it.”

       Wang Dong nodded stiffly.

       Li Zhenruo continued, “But did you know that Sun He later gave this photo to Mr. Li.”

       Wang Dong looked up in amazement.

       Li Zhenruo looked serious, “Mr. Luo said, no matter what, we must find Sun He. Dong ge, do you know Sun He’s whereabouts?”

Chapter 81

       A road from the trail leads directly to the expressway out of the city.

       Before they knew it, it was already dark. It was almost winter and the weather was not very good today. It was gloomy all afternoon. When Li Zhentai and the others drove out, it was almost completely dark.

       Li Zhentai was sitting in the passenger seat, always looking back repeatedly and uneasily, as if he was afraid that someone would catch up.

       It was the tall and thin man who was driving. He glanced at Li Zhentai, and then looked at the man sitting in the back from the rearview mirror.

       The old couple were huddled in the back row, shivering a little.

       Li Zhenran had just parked the car on the side of the road, but now he was far behind their car, keeping a distance that would not be noticed but kept them in sight.

       Li Zhenruo kept staring at the car in front and noticed that they suddenly started to slow down, and finally, he saw the car stop on the side of the road.

       “What’s going on?” Li Zhenruo said.

       Li Zhenran didn’t stop at the side of the road, but turned into a small road, parked the car beside a farmhouse’s yard, and then turned off the headlights completely.

       Li Zhentai was also inexplicable at this time. He asked the tall and thin man who was driving, “What are you doing?”

       The man said, “Tai ge, after thinking about it, I still think it’s better for you to settle the account with us first.”

       Li Zhentai couldn’t help but glanced at the old couple sitting in the back row in the rearview mirror, and asked vaguely, “What do you want?”

       The man smiled and said, “You can’t protect yourself now, how can you tell us to follow you? It’s easy to kill someone, but it’s a long way to go, and if you don’t have any money when you get back, then won’t we be foolish to make a trip for nothing?”

       When the old lady heard him say murder, she shouted in a high voice, “What did you say?”

       The young man sitting next to her held a knife at her neck, “Shut up! I’ll kill you if you shout again!”

       The old man hurriedly hugged his wife. The two looked at Li Zhentai and helplessly trembling.

       Li Zhentai said solemnly, “What do you guys want? Just tell me.”

       The tall and thin man said, “Even a scrawny camel is bigger than a horse1even after suffering a loss, a rich person is still better off than ordinary people. You first ask someone to send two million cash over, we meet on the highway, then you get off, I will take these two people to dispose of.”

       The old couple looked terrified, and the old lady couldn’t help but say, “You guys are crazy!”

       The young man sitting back grabbed the handle of the knife and hit her in the face, “Shut up!”

       The old lady tilted her head, was hugged by her husband, buried her head in his arms and cried in a low voice.

       The old man couldn’t help but said, “Xiao Jie—”

       “Shut up!” The young man gave him a slap in the face irritably, “Can’t understand a word, can you?”

       Both fell silent this time.

       Li Zhentai said, “How can I have so much cash at a time? I still have some stocks and real estate in my hands, but I can’t cash out that fast.”

       The tall and thin man asked him, “Then what do you suggest?”

       Li Zhentai glanced at the rearview mirror and said, “You asked me to go back and collect money now. The two of them stay here. Are you not afraid that I won’t give you the money?”

       The tall and thin man said, “That’s true, but the two of them won’t die. You, Young Master Li, will definitely not feel at ease. If I were you, I would find someone to kill us all after I left, right?”

       Before Li Zhentai could retort, the man suddenly took out a gun and pointed it at his temple, “Don’t fvcking play tricks with me! You come with us, call someone now to get the money and send it to us tomorrow!”

       This man was an outlaw, and Li Zhentai knew in his heart that he did not intend to die with him here.

       “I’ll call,” he said.

       Li Zhentai took out his mobile phone to dial. While waiting for the call to be connected, the man beside him put the gun back and started the car to continue driving forward.

       At this moment, Li Zhentai slammed open the door and almost rolled out against the bottom of the door.

       The car had been parked by the side of the road, next to a low slope overgrown with weeds, and a field below. Li Zhentai rolled out of the car door and rolled down the low slope against the ground. Because the weeds were very high, Li Zhentai didn’t notice that there was still a shallow ditch below, and he quickly crawled forward along the shallow ditch with his hands and feet.

       The man in the car chased after him and fired two shots in his direction.

       But because it was too dark to see the figure clearly from the weeds, Li Zhentai stopped, afraid that the sound of his running would give him direction.

       The man walked slowly along the side of the road for a short distance and fired two more shots.

       This time, Li Zhentai was very unlucky. A shot was shot in his leg, and intense pain hit him, but in this life and death situation, he still held back and did not cry out.

       At this time, several people heard the sound of sirens blaring in the silent darkness.

       The young man in the car pointed his head and shouted, “Boss, there are police!”

       The tall and thin man hesitated for a moment, turned back to the car, and quickly started the car to leave.

       Li Zhentai was lying on the low slope, and when he heard the car drive away, he slowly got up and wanted to walk forward, but the severe pain in his leg made him unable to walk normally, so he had to lie on the ground and slowly move forward.

       It was impossible to tell whether it was blood or water on his pants. Li Zhentai suddenly became afraid. He was afraid that he would die here. He hurriedly wanted to touch his mobile phone to call someone, but after a long time, he could not find his mobile phone. Only then did he realize that he had probably lost his mobile phone on the way out of the car holding it.

       Li Zhentai was very nervous. He listened to the sound of the siren in the dark and even began to consider whether to wait until the police car approached and shout. Other things could be considered later, but he didn’t want to die here now.

       However, the sound of the siren did not get closer but seemed to be getting further and further away.

       The pain in his leg made him unable to think carefully, so he could only shout, “Is there anyone?” When he opened his mouth, he found that his voice was so hoarse that he could barely make a sound.

       Suddenly, in the silence, he clearly heard footsteps approaching in his direction.

       “Who?” Li Zhentai raised his head, but found that he couldn’t see anyone clearly in the dark, “Help me.”

       The man walked up to him and squatted down, sighed softly, and called his name: “Li Zhentai.”

       Li Zhentai was sweating coldly on his forehead, and he could barely see the outline of a person in the dark. He asked nervously, “Who are you?” The thing he was most worried about now was that the two people came back to find him.

       The person in front of him said, “I’m Li Zhenruo.”

       Li Zhentai was suddenly stunned.

       The person who appeared in front of him was Li Zhenruo. And Li Zhenran drove to keep up with the car that was left in front.

       Li Zhentai was a little dazed, “Li Zhenruo is dead.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Yes. Do you believe that there are ghosts and retribution in this world?”

       Li Zhentai rolled his throat and reached out to grab Li Zhenruo, “Help me.”

       Li Zhenruo avoided it, “I said I am Li Zhenruo, do you think I will save you?”

       Li Zhentai raised his head as if trying to see him clearly, his thighs were bleeding continuously, and the warm blood soaked the whole pants and wrapped around his body. At the same time, his body temperature was decreasing.

       Li Zhenruo asked him, “Why did you kill me?”

       Li Zhentai seemed to be in a trance. He said, “You are not my brother, you are not Li Jianglin’s son.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Yeah, I’m not, but neither are you.”

       Li Zhentai was stunned for a moment, “I am innocent, they abandoned me and swapped me with dad’s dead son. You are different, your mother is a bitch, she cheated on him with someone and left.”

       Li Zhenruo frowned, “Who told you that?”

       Li Zhentai did not answer his question, but shouted in vain, “Help me…”

       Li Zhenruo asked him, “Why did you kill me?”

       Li Zhentai said, “You are too curious. You are not from the Li family. What qualifications do you have to investigate the Li family?”

       Li Zhenruo was a little angry and grabbed him by the collar, “So that’s why you killed me?”

       Li Zhentai didn’t answer him, but grabbed his wrist weakly, “I’m dying, please help me?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “If you answer my question, I will save you.”

       Li Zhentai was breathing heavily.

       Li Zhenruo asked him, “Where did you get the picture of my mother?”

       Li Zhentai took a long breath and told Li Zhenruo, “Someone gave it to me.”

       Li Zhenruo squeezed her fingers, “Who gave it to you?”

       Li Zhentai didn’t speak, just panted heavily in his ear.

       “Who gave it to you?” Li Zhenruo shouted in his ear in a low voice, while reaching out to squeeze the wound on Li Zhentai’s leg.

       Li Zhentai screamed and said, “It was a man named Sun He. He said he was Luo Yunguang’s cousin. This photo was found when he went to help her clean up her old house after the fourth child’s own mother died.”

       “Luo Yunguang?” Li Zhenruo was a little confused, “Why did he give it to you?”

       Li Zhentai didn’t answer, he began to tremble, grabbed Li Zhenruo and said, “Help me…”

       Li Zhenruo asked him, “Who did you hear that you were swapped with Li Jiang Lin’s son who died?”

       Li Zhentai said, “Luo, Luo Yunguang.”

       Li Zhenruo recalled Luo Yunguang, the words he said to Li Zhenran at his house last time. At that time, he completely believed him without reservation, but he didn’t understand why when he came to Li Zhentai, there would be another story.

       Li Zhentai’s grip on Li Zhenruo was getting lighter and lighter.

       Li Zhenruo asked him, “Where is Sun He now?”

       Li Zhentai shook his head, his eyes had begun to slacken.

       Li Zhenruo patted his face and saw that he had begun to lose consciousness, so he let go of him and stood up slowly.

       Li Zhentai curled up in one place.

       Li Zhenruo said to him, “Just die alone in this stinky ditch and taste the fear of death.”

       After he said that, he turned around and transformed into a cat. He clearly saw Li Zhentai’s miserable appearance in the dark, so he stood quietly for a while before stepping on the mud and running away.

       This road was a bit remote, and there were no other cars passing by along the way, only him as a cat walking forward along the road.

       After a while, he saw a car approaching in the distance, and his headlights made him narrow his eyes.

       Li Zhenran parked the car beside him, opened the door and looked at him.

       Li Zhenruo jumped into the car, rubbed the mud on his footpads, and then changed into a human shape and sat on the passenger seats. He said, “Li Zhentai is dying.”

       Li Zhenran said, “They have been stopped by the police, and both husband and wife are fine.”

       Li Zhenruo was suddenly worried, “They won’t bring the police to find Li Zhentai, will they?”

       Li Zhenran said, “They should be. After all, Li Zhentai’s parents wouldn’t want to watch him die.”

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but look back at the darkness outside the window, “If Li Zhentai didn’t die and was resuscitated back…”

       “Then let him die again,” Li Zhenran said.

       Maybe it was a bit cold, Li Zhenruo shivered and turned to look at Li Zhenran. The blue light of the dashboard shone on his face, and he could see that he was expressionless when he said this.

       Then Li Zhenran turned his head to look at Li Zhenruo, took his shoulders and kissed him gently on his forehead, “It’s okay, I said they would get their retribution.”

Ngl, it’s so satisfying seeing Zhentai died like that
