Chapter 97 – The smile that gradually disappeared. 

Chapter 97 – The smile that gradually disappeared. 


Jian Luo quietly looked at the queen. The queen was somewhat nervous. She looked at Jian Luo and said seriously, “You don’t believe me, do you?”


Jian Luo stood in place. “You’ve given me so much advice. Let me give you a piece of advice too.”


“What is it?”


“If you don’t leave now, you won’t be able to leave.”


The queen suddenly felt uneasy. She turned around and found no one behind her, and there were no pursuers here. “You deceived me?”


Jian Luo said, “Believe it or not, it’s up to you.”


A voice came from her communication bracelet. “Sis, you need to teleport quickly; the signal on your end is getting weaker.”


The queen frowned and finally hesitated no more. She opened her communication bracelet, and as it was taken apart, it seemed like an invisible wall was spinning. As it got closer, Jian Luo could feel the vortex coming from the other side.


The queen’s red dress billowed from the wind on the other side of the wall. She looked at Jian Luo again. “Are you really not coming with me? Is it for the child?”


Jian Luo watched her actions, unfazed. “Do you want to hear the truth?”


The queen nodded.


“I’ve never thought of escaping from him. Not in the past, and I probably won’t in the future. Thank you for your kindness. Goodbye.”


As he finished speaking, he received the queen’s rather complex gaze.


The queen stepped in, not forgetting to say to Jian Luo, “You will regret this.”


Jian Luo watched her quietly, unmoved.


As the entire portal engulfed her, the living person who had just stood there disappeared. Jian Luo stared at the empty ground for a while, and he felt like he should be thinking about something, but in reality, he wasn’t thinking anything at all.




A loud noise came from outside, along with the sound of commotion.


Jian Luo looked up and saw a group of people entering, with General Lu Shifeng at the forefront, wearing a sharp military uniform. It seemed like today they were about to leave. He had a dark blue cloak dr4p3d over his back, and with his every move, the cloak fluttered, making him look quite imposing.


The black knee-high military boots stepped crisply on the clean floor, making sharp, efficient sounds. Finally, the owner of the boots stopped in front of Jian Luo.


Jian Luo raised his face to look at him, with a thin layer of sweat on his forehead.


Lu Shifeng looked down at him, seemingly confirming his safety. He said, “Are you injured?”


Jian Luo took a deep breath and then replied, “No.”




Lu Shifeng glanced around the bathroom, took off his cloak, and dr4p3d it over Jian Luo’s shoulders. His voice carried a hint of magnetism, “If you’re scared, you can cry.”


Jian Luo remained silent.


The cloak was fastened around his shoulders, and along with it came the familiar scent of the man who had been with him every day. Honestly, he was trembling a bit. His earlier composure was just an act. Now, seeing the person who meant everything to him, there was no need for pretense. He said, “If you hadn’t come…”


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow. “If I hadn’t come?”


“Then my legs might have given out. I thought I wouldn’t last that long.”


It was clear he had been trying to find a topic to buy more time.


Lu Shifeng pulled out a clean handkerchief and handed it to him. “Wipe yourself.”


Jian Luo was momentarily stunned, then realized it was for him to wipe the sweat from his forehead. He took it and said, “Thank you.”


Lu Shifeng’s chief secretary said, “Bring him back.”


The chief secretary replied, “Yes!”


Jian Luo was still trying to steady his wobbly legs when he suddenly saw Lu Shifeng preparing to leave. He instinctively asked, “Where are you going?”


Outside, two rows of Dragon Clan soldiers were standing, glancing over in this direction, curious to see how the Supreme Commander would comfort his delicate little wife. Would he be all smiles, they wondered, and thought about how the Supreme Commander used to comfort others. If it weren’t for you, he might have already given you a beating. Now, he’s keeping his temper in check and speaking kindly. That’s really not easy.


Lu Shifeng stopped in his tracks, turned around, and looked at Jian Luo. “What do you think?”


Jian Luo asked, “Are you going to find her?”


Lu Shifeng’s handsome face showed little expression, and his blood-red eyes gazed calmly at Jian Luo. “She had set her sights on you.”


His voice was calm and steady, with an inexplicable hint of menace. “Damn.”


Jian Luo choked on his words.


Lu Shifeng’s presence was too overwhelming, and it frightened him. If the queen had escaped, there would be consequences for the leader, and as the last person to have contact with her, Jian Luo might not be let off easily. With this in mind, he walked closer to Lu Shifeng and said, “I’m not her accomplice.”


Lu Shifeng looked down at him from above. “I know.”


Jian Luo thought for a moment and decided to be honest: “She wanted me to go with her, but I didn’t.”


After speaking, he stole a few more glances at Lu Shifeng, trying to gauge the Supreme Commander’s reaction, but found only an unsurprised expression on his face.


Jian Luo hesitated. “Aren’t you shocked at all?”


Lu Shifeng said, “Clearly not. If you had gone with her, you wouldn’t still be standing here.”


Unable to argue with that, Jian Luo found it rather uninteresting. He muttered, “What if I had gone with her?”


Lu Shifeng lowered his head to look at him. His aura changed, becoming more imposing, and a strong sense of pressure emanated from him. He quirked a cold smile and said, one word at a time, “You can try.”


Suddenly, Jian Luo broke into a cold sweat. He even had a daring thought: what if… what if Lu Shifeng had already left?


If he had agreed, he might not be having this pleasant conversation right now.


Thinking of this, Jian Luo felt a bit wronged. He had been waiting here nervously, and that jerk was still outside, not coming in. He was making him worry, and he wondered what he had done to deserve this.


Jian Luo hung his head, feeling his nose tingle. He mumbled, “Oh.”


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow. The Supreme Commander wasn’t particularly adept at handling this kind of response. “Why are you crying?”


“Didn’t you say it’s okay to cry?” Pregnant people’s emotions can be quite unreasonable, and Jian Luo, feeling he couldn’t control himself, continued in a melodramatic tone, “My tears aren’t going to bother you. Aren’t you busy with something? You’re annoying.”


Lu Shifeng fell silent for a while, then spoke, “Jian Luo.”


Jian Luo grumbled, “What?”


“One million.” Lu Shifeng said, “When we get back, I’ll have someone set up an online shopping account for you, and you can use my credit card.”


Jian Luo couldn’t help but almost laugh. He had wanted to act a bit reserved, but he gave in happily. “What do you take me for? I’m not interested in these things.”


Lu Shifeng said, “Two million.”


“Okay, you win!”


Lu Shifeng’s powers of persuasion through money worked like a charm, and Jian Luo forgave him with a cheerful heart. Then, obediently, he stopped causing trouble and went back to the battleship with his chief secretary.


The chief secretary said, “Luo Luo, take a rest in this room. If you need anything, call me. I’ll be outside.”


Jian Luo nodded. “Thank you.”


The chief secretary smiled and left.


Once she had gone, Jian Luo slowly lay down on the bed. He glanced at his communication bracelet and couldn’t help but recall the queen’s words today. Whether it was about the Star Core or the communication bracelet, it all replayed in his mind.


The idea of plundering the fortunes of other planets was something he had never heard of. It did seem to match Lu Shifeng’s style, and in fact, Lu Shifeng had never been labeled as a good person in people’s mouths, even before he met him. The Supreme Commander was known as ruthless and merciless, and he had a reputation for being cold-blooded.


Xiu Liang had more than once warned him to stay away from Lu Shifeng.


The Star Core incident had made Jian Luo acutely aware that the man sleeping by his side was far from a saint. They were probably not on the same side either, but what could he do now? He had no way out. He was carrying Lu Shifeng’s child, his family lived within Lu Shifeng’s sphere of influence, and as Lu Shifeng had said, he had no way to escape, even if he wanted to.


Unless… he went back.


On the other side, the queen was seated, and she had shed her previous vulnerability. She raised her wine glass coquettishly. “Mission accomplished.”


The silver-haired person sitting above her scoffed. “Mission accomplished my foot. I told you to bring him back; where is he?”


“He didn’t want to come; what could I do?” The queen complained, “Besides, he’s your Dragon King’s little treasure. If anything happens to him, won’t Lu Shifeng annihilate me?”


Silver-gray: “What are you afraid of him for?”


The queen retorted, “Aren’t you afraid?”


While saying this, she glanced at Silver-gray, wondering where this man’s confidence came from. The last time he had crossed Lu Shifeng, he had been bedridden for half a month, and now he seemed to have forgotten the pain.


Silver-gray changed the subject, and his expression under the lamplight appeared somewhat eerie. “Enough with the nonsense. Have you completed the tasks I assigned to you?”


The queen nodded. “Don’t worry; everything is installed.”


Silver-gray sighed. “Do we need to steal some maternity and baby supplies?”


“No need,” the queen said. “Dragon children aren’t like regular babies. They’re basically borned old enough to be weaned and won’t need anyone’s care. Instead of thinking about the baby supplies, why don’t you figure out how to raise a human so he doesn’t die?”




Four months later.


Jian Luo had initially thought that he and Lu Shifeng would return within a few months, but it turned out to be quite the opposite. It seemed that Lu Shifeng was ensuring that he wasn’t disturbed on Dark Star, so the entire army hadn’t returned. It was like an interstellar vacation; while most people went on honeymoons after getting married, he was playing with a child in his belly.


However, the battleship was spacious, so he wasn’t feeling cramped. The only downside was that his belly was growing larger and larger. What used to be a small bump was now a noticeable bulge.




Jian Luo opened his eyes, waking up once again from his dream. As the months passed, his pregnancy symptoms had become more pronounced, and he could hardly sleep through the night. He was frequently awakened by the need to use the restroom or by leg cramps.


This time, it was a leg cramp.


Jian Luo slowly sat up, trying to get used to it and alleviate the discomfort.


There was some movement nearby, and Lu Shifeng sat up. “Leg cramp?”


Jian Luo noticed that he was awake and hurriedly said, “It’s nothing. You go back to sleep; I’ll be fine after I stretch for a while.”


Lu Shifeng was wearing the duck-themed pajamas he had worn on Dark Star. This attire somewhat diminished the Supreme Commander’s imposing presence. He sat up and spoke in a familiar tone, “Which leg?”


“…” Jian Luo pointed. “This one.”


Lu Shifeng reached out and massaged Jian Luo’s leg. After a long time, Jian Luo began to doubt whether Lu Shifeng was a professional masseur. Who could apply such evenly distributed pressure for so long?


Since the onset of his pregnancy symptoms, he had slept poorly, and it had also affected Lu Shifeng’s sleep.


Jian Luo looked at him and spoke gently, “Should we sleep in separate rooms?”


Lu Shifeng paused and gave him a glance. “What are you planning now?”


His tone seemed to suggest, “What mischief are you up to today, you little troublemaker?”


Jian Luo replied, “I don’t want to disturb your rest. Could you prepare another bed for me in a different room? This way, I won’t sleep well, and you won’t either.”


“…” Jian Luo thanked him silently.


They had been on the battleship for a month. The battleship had finally arrived at another destination, a planet that was friendly with Dark Star, and it was even wealthier. According to the chief secretary, it was a kingdom of elves.


Jian Luo was excited. “Elves? Are they the ones with the pointy ears and exceptionally beautiful looks?”


The chief secretary smiled. “Something like that.”


“Wow!” Jian Luo couldn’t contain his excitement. “I’m going to see elves!”


The chief secretary was curious. “Are elves so rare? If that’s the case, you weren’t very excited when you first met our Dragon King or the Phoenix Clan. They are all considered rare nobility.”


Jian Luo shook his head. “You can’t compare them.”


The chief secretary asked, “Why not?”


“I was excited at first,” Jian Luo sighed, “But when you’ve been with someone for a long time, it gets old. You get tired of it. Like, which family’s flowers can compare to the wildflowers you find in the wilderness?”


“Luo Luo…”


Jian Luo: “What?”


The chief secretary cast a glance behind Jian Luo and said, “Perhaps you should look behind you.”


Jian Luo turned to see Lu Shifeng standing not far away, looking at him with raised eyebrows. The unspoken threat in his gaze seemed to dare Jian Luo to repeat himself.


Jian Luo choked up, “What I meant was, as beautiful as wildflowers can be, they can’t compare to the charm of homegrown ones.”


The chief secretary couldn’t help but stifle her laughter.


As they entered the realm of the elves, Jian Luo was completely unrestrained. He looked left and right, especially when he saw little fairies sitting with transparent wings. He couldn’t help but exclaim, “They’re so cute!”


Lu Shifeng warned, “Don’t touch them casually.”


Jian Luo stood and asked, “Why not?”


The chief secretary explained, “Elves are not allowed to be touched at will. If you make physical contact with them, it might be considered a binding contract, implying that you’re their lifelong partner, meaning you can only be with one palm-sized person for the rest of your life.”




Now, they didn’t seem as cute anymore.


The group entered the Elf Palace, where the Elf King had prepared a banquet to welcome the guests. He appeared somewhat elderly, with stubble on his face. The decorations in the Elf Palace were almost entirely made of crystal, shining brightly and exuding exquisite beauty. The attire of the elf tribe was equally exquisite, with white dresses and crystal masks, creating an alluring and enchanting look.


Jian Luo couldn’t help but exclaim, “Wow.”


With a baby girl in his belly, he knew he would have to dress her up beautifully in the future. If it’s a baby boy, well, who cares, he can wear whatever.


The group took their seats at the banquet table. Jian Luo looked at the crystal pitcher on the table filled with water and secretly asked Lu Shifeng, “What are we going to eat?”


Lu Shifeng pointed to the water pitcher in front of Jian Luo. “It’s right in front of you.”


Jian Luo couldn’t believe it. “You mean this?”


Do fairies really only drink dewdrops!?


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow. “Don’t you like elves? When in Rome, do as the Romans do.”




Suddenly, his admiration waned.


The dancers among the elves who had been performing in the front hall had just finished. Their movements were graceful, and they all looked like celestial beings.


As Jian Luo enjoyed the spectacle, he was secretly planning to sneak away. However, the Elf King suddenly spoke, “How does the human guest find our dancers?”


Lu Shifeng held a cup and calmly replied, “They’re excellent.”


Jian Luo also nodded in agreement. The dance was truly captivating.


“Excellent! That’s wonderful!” The king applauded. “These performers will accompany the human guest for a while. They can keep you entertained during your leisure time and bring a smile to your face.”




The room fell into silence.


The smile on Jian Luo’s smile gradually faded as he realized the implications.

Chapter 136 – Who Says Omegas Can’t be as Explosive as Alphas

Chapter 136: Extra Story Seven


Initially, the process of Wen Ye and Bing Yunlin being together was incredibly low-key. Even until their marriage, it remained remarkably understated. Even their wedding was a simple affair. In contrast to the extravagant century wedding of the Wen family, theirs seemed excessively modest.


What’s most surprising is how the Bing family, such a prestigious household, simply let them be. It seemed they hadn’t considered how it might affect their image at all.


Both being prominent figures in the military, this demeanor unavoidably sparked speculation. Yet, the involved parties remained unbothered, continuing their lives without a hitch.


If anything, their habits seemed to align more seamlessly as time progressed.


Wen Ye always favored a systematic approach to life, where everything had a plan, followed by flawlessly executed actions. Bing Yunlin, while not particularly disorganized before, was relatively more spontaneous. Many doubted this seemingly mismatched duo’s compatibility, but post-marriage, Bing Yunlin adapted to a degree that their life together became the epitome of perfect synchronization.


Wen Ye adhered strictly to his self-imposed schedule, and Bing Yunlin mirrored it precisely. These routines, neatly placed by the bedside, served as constant reminders.


As usual, with stars rising from the distant horizon, another routine day unfolded seamlessly.


At the crack of dawn, as if on cue, Wen Ye’s internal clock roused him from slumber, his eyes opening almost to the precise second.


This slight movement promptly awakened the nearby Bing Yunlin. Seeing Wen Ye about to rise and dress, he gently pulled him closer.


Nuzzling against Wen Ye’s neck, Bing Yunlin’s voice carried a rare laziness, owing to just having woken up. It lent him an air of elegant languor, akin to a graceful fox. “Good morning, A’ Ye.”


Due to just waking up, his voice held an unusual lilt, making his whole demeanor resemble a lazy yet elegant fox.


Slightly tickled by Bing Yunlin’s actions, Wen Ye couldn’t help but curve his lips. “Morning.”


Observing Wen Ye dress at a pace rivaling military protocol, Bing Yunlin leaned against the bedside, lazily stretching before reluctantly tearing his gaze away to fetch his own clothes.


Although Wen Ye was strict about his routines, he didn’t insist on forcing Bing Yunlin to adhere strictly to his schedule. He had proposed it multiple times, but Bing Yunlin, with a smiling refusal, consistently replied, “I understand your thoughts, but I’d rather sync my life completely with yours for a lifetime.”


Marriage seemed to sprinkle unexpected moments of affection like these randomly into their days. Eventually, Wen Ye learned to simply go with the flow.


Their morning routine was simple. It began with their usual morning run, akin to a marathon, followed by combat training, culminating in lunchtime. Wen Ye’s endurance remained exceptional. His morning run was practically a marathon, at a pace that few, even among the high-ranking officers in the entire military, could keep up with.


Surprisingly, Bing Yunlin matched this speed without breaking a sweat, running the entire distance alongside him. Not only that, he even handed over a bottle of water at the finish line.


One couldn’t fathom when he’d prepared so thoroughly; he was the epitome of an exemplary partner, flawless in every aspect.


Because they reported daily, the sight of them entering the training ground, one following the other, had become commonplace, evoking not just excitement but also a sense of routine among those present.


Later on, others gradually caught on to their daily morning training routine. Some even waited eagerly in advance, eager to witness the exhilarating “mutual combat scene” of these two esteemed officers.


Combat required a fairly matched opponent, and for Wen Ye, Bing Yunlin was evidently the perfect match. Despite sharing a bed every night, once they stepped into the ring, their movements were precise, showing no hint of leniency.


From an observer’s perspective, even a casual video snippet captured the essence of their combat skills. Gradually, this time slot became a learning opportunity for other soldiers in the Legion.


A ring of onlookers surrounded them, eager to witness the showdown between these two top-ranking Alpha young officers. The excitement was so overwhelming that one viewing was never enough.


Over time, the daily training ground became more popular than the neighboring planet’s grand theater, a testament to its packed audience each day.


Wen Ye wasn’t fond of this attention, but accustomed to it, he didn’t protest. As for Bing Yunlin, he had no objections whatsoever.


After a while, Bing Yunlin arranged for a colleague to manage the crowd, ensuring each viewer paid a fee of 100 stars per visit. It was a shrewd move, leaving little room for refusal.


Wen Ye didn’t particularly endorse this approach, but since it was Bing Yunlin who initiated it, rather than expressing dissent, Wen Ye surprisingly cooperated.


In Bing Yunlin’s words, he intended to contribute these earnings to household expenses. Though they weren’t in need, he found a peculiar charm in using this “hard-earned money” to purchase various house decorations, such as the towel rack in the bathroom, acquired through these means.


The eccentric designs left Wen Ye questioning Bing Yunlin’s taste, once remarking, “Could your preferences lean a bit more towards the norm?”


With a radiant smile, Bing Yunlin countered, “Do you dislike it this way?”


Momentarily silent, under Bing Yunlin’s gaze, Wen Ye’s expression inadvertently turned serious. “I like it.”


Initially, he might have hesitated about liking Bing Yunlin’s quirks, but today, the answer seemed unequivocal.


Lunch was prepared by Bing Yunlin. Wen Ye’s aversion to greasy food was common knowledge, so there was an unspoken understanding about who took charge in the kitchen.


Post-meal comprised a brief session of current affairs and a nap. The nap had to fit within an hour, but the news time was remarkably flexible.


As per Wen Ye’s routine, he meticulously perused all significant military and political reports to ensure he had the latest frontline intelligence.


Having brewed tea, Bing Yunlin lounged on the nearby sofa, casually browsing the news. Glancing at the time, he reminded, “It’s time for the meeting.”


Today, they had an internal Legion meeting discussing crucial strategic deployments for the upcoming phase. Despite being on leave for a few days, attending this meeting was imperative.


Wen Ye’s demeanor in uniform contrasted starkly with his usual relaxed attire, whereas Bing Yunlin, regardless of what he wore, always exuded a subtle hint of slyness.


As they stepped outside, Bing Yunlin suddenly called out to him. Wen Ye turned around inquiringly, only to see Bing Yunlin approaching with a smile, gently adjusting his collar. “It’s early, no need to rush.”


Wen Ye disliked being late and always allocated ample time to avoid any haste. But today, somehow, his collar adjustment didn’t seem as meticulous as usual.


Serious in his gesture, Bing Yunlin tidied it up and, casting a glance at Wen Ye’s expression, asked, “What’s on your mind?”


Caught off guard that his momentary distraction was noticed by Bing Yunlin over such a small detail, Wen Ye paused momentarily before responding, “Wen Xingchen and Lu Jingning’s fleet clashed with the Insectoids. I’m uncertain about the situation.”


Bing Yunlin blinked his narrow eyes and lightly patted Wen Ye’s shoulder, smoothing out the final crease. “Lu Jingning is quite nimble; nothing serious will happen.”


Though this statement lacked any theoretical basis, whenever Bing Yunlin spoke, Wen Ye found his words strangely reasonable. Nodding in agreement, Wen Ye affirmed, “That’s true.”


In no time, Bing Yunlin was ready. Grinning, he gestured, “Let’s go.”



Within the military, Alpha-alpha relationships weren’t uncommon. However, the presence of two top-tier Alphas created an undeniably captivating scene.


On the avenue, two tall and slender figures were visible from afar, their proportions immaculate and bodies perfectly sculpted.


Passing soldiers couldn’t help but glance and silently exclaim to themselves, “Those two esteemed individuals!”


Having spent many years in the military, Wen Ye and Bing Yunlin had garnered their fair share of admirers. New recruits rarely encountered them and couldn’t help but sneak excited glances, envisioning countless military scenarios in their animated discussions.


The pairing of these top-notch individuals felt akin to a movie scene—a perfect match, seamlessly complementary.


In reality, if anyone overheard their conversation, they’d probably question their lives. No significant military matters were being discussed. Although Wen Ye appeared deep in thought, the question he posed was entirely unexpected.


Bing Yunlin, amused by Wen Ye’s furrowed brow, chuckled, “How about minced meat fried rice then?”


Wen Ye negated, “I had a substantial intake of meat yesterday; an imbalance in energy intake affects the body’s state.”


Considering, Bing Yunlin suggested, “Vegetables, then?”


Shaking his head, Wen Ye explained, “Purely vegetable-based meals often lack balanced nutrients.”


After a moment of contemplation, he finally concluded, “Based on last week’s menu, we could consider seafood today, preferably shellfish.”


Unable to contain his amusement, Bing Yunlin laughed, “Alright, after the meeting, let’s go buy some.”


Wen Ye nodded in agreement, “Agreed.”


As they conversed, the two arrived at the entrance of the meeting building. The two soldiers on guard saluted crisply upon seeing them.


Wen Ye courteously reciprocated the gesture, and together with Bing Yunlin, they ascended the steps and entered side by side.


Today, everything proceeded according to plan, a genuinely satisfying accomplishment for Wen Ye.

Chapter 96 – Are you running?

Chapter 96 – Are you running?


Jian Luo looked at the mirror for a while, sighed, and finally decided to go out first, as there was no point in staying here. It was just a waste of time. He opened the bathroom door, intending to hurry and change into a new set of clothes. However, as soon as he opened the door, he froze. Lu Shifeng was standing there, eyeing him.




There was a moment of silence in the air. Lu Shifeng’s gaze swept over him, and there was a hint of mockery in his usually cold eyes. He smirked, his intentions unclear.


Jian Luo stood frozen in place, his ears turning bright red. He was somewhat embarrassed and annoyed. “Why did you suddenly return?”


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow. “Isn’t this my place too?”


“…” Jian Luo hurriedly walked towards the wardrobe, grabbed a coat to cover up his embarrassing appearance, muttering, “Yes, you just startled me.”


As he spoke, he tried to put on the coat, but when he glanced down, he realized it was blue.


Jian Luo widened his eyes. Lu Shifeng walked over, his military boots making crisp, resolute sounds on the floor. Jian Luo nervously took a couple of steps back.


Finally, Lu Shifeng stopped in front of him, extended his hand, and his well-defined fingers slowly approached. This made Jian Luo’s heart race, and he stammered, “What… what are you doing? I’m still in the early stages.”


Lu Shifeng picked up the coat in Jian Luo’s hand. “You can’t wear this.”


Huh? Jian Luo’s gaze shifted to the coat in Lu Shifeng’s hand, only to discover that it was the random piece of clothing he had grabbed, and to his horror, it was Lu Shifeng’s military uniform!


Annoyance surged within Jian Luo. He felt somewhat indignant. “I picked up the wrong one.”


Lu Shifeng responded with a simple “Hmm,” and tossed the coat back into the wardrobe. He then looked down at Jian Luo’s new outfit.


Jian Luo was initially embarrassed, but suddenly, he noticed the room had fallen silent. He raised his head inquisitively, only to be met with Lu Shifeng’s scrutinizing gaze.


What? Jian Luo instantly retreated half a meter, then leaped onto the bed, hiding under the blanket. “Don’t look!”


Lu Shifeng stood there, observing the little rabbit hopping around. The tail of his outfit swayed with each movement, giving it a dynamic quality. Originally meant to be somewhat sexy, the clothing on him appeared more like children’s attire, and it looked cute.


Lu Shifeng finally spoke, his voice exuding magnetism with a hint of huskiness. “Who gave you this outfit?”


“…” Jian Luo hesitated for a moment, then decided to tell the truth. “It was Ya Jie. Don’t blame her; it’s a gift.”


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow. “Ya Jie?”


Jian Luo nodded.


He had prepared himself for some strict words from the Marshal, thinking he might need to plead with him to avoid causing trouble for Ya Jie. After all, he wasn’t a heartless person. But to his surprise, Lu Shifeng casually said, “Not bad.”


Jian Luo was taken aback. “Very creative.”


Lu Shifeng sat on the edge of the bed, crossing his long legs, and looked at Jian Luo with a raised eyebrow, his tone lazy. “You just thought I neglected your needs.”


Jian Luo frantically nodded. “Of course, it’s true!”


The atmosphere became somewhat awkward.


In the end, Jian Luo couldn’t tell if it was just his imagination, but he felt that the Marshal seemed a bit disappointed in the end.


What are you disappointed about?


Lu Shifeng turned around. “Go change in the bathroom.”


Jian Luo, seeing that Lu Shifeng was no longer teasing him and feeling a bit uncomfortable, found the Marshal’s behavior quite strange. When he was persistent, you wanted to retreat, and when he gave up, you felt a bit off balance. The pure human Jian Luo was now caught up in this dilemma.


In the end, he swiftly grabbed a new set of clothes and went to the bathroom to change. In passing, he said, “I’ve left some food for you in the small cupboard next to it. It’s still warm, so make sure to eat it.”


Lu Shifeng watched him dash into the bathroom, squinting his eyes. Eventually, he got up and headed to the neighboring room’s bathroom.



When Jian Luo emerged, the Marshal was already having his meal at the table. Jian Luo, while drying his hair, sat down and asked, “Is it delicious?”


Lu Shifeng said, “I heard the Queen visited you.”


“Yep,” Jian Luo didn’t want to tell him everything, “Because discussing herb matters is always important. We also had a meal together.”


This man was truly formidable. Sometimes Jian Luo felt a bit creepy because it seemed like he knew everything about his daily activities, whom he met, and what he did.


Lu Shifeng said, “Don’t talk to her much.”


Jian Luo was indignant, “Why?”


“Most likely, she’s faking her illness,” Lu Shifeng scooped some soup with a spoon, “Staying here is probably just a ploy to find an opportunity to escape.”




Really? Jian Luo suddenly felt his perspective had shifted a bit. Why was the Queen getting close to him? Could she have some ulterior motive, planning to use him? The more he thought about it, the more uneasy he felt. “Are you afraid she’ll use me to escape?”


“No,” Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow, leaning back on the couch, his tone relaxed. “I’m afraid you’ll be wasting your effort.”


“What…” What is this man thinking? However, Lu Shifeng’s warning did make Jian Luo more vigilant in dealing with the Queen. They might need to stay on the Industrial Star for a few more days because Lu Shifeng had strict requirements for custom-made defense shields, and they had to work with the local engineers. As a family member, Jian Luo had some leisure time on the Industrial Star. He suddenly received a message from the Little Emperor: “Luo Luo!”


When the message arrived, Jian Luo was still organizing the herb inventory he had collected from Earth. He was startled and sighed before replying, “What’s up?”


The Little Emperor quickly responded, “Just missed you. How’s the honeymoon going? If Lu Shifeng isn’t treating you well, I can find someone else for you!”


“…” Jian Luo still valued his life, and he didn’t want the Little Emperor to badmouth him behind Lu Shifeng’s back. So, he replied, “It’s okay.”


But he couldn’t help but wonder why the Little Emperor was suddenly reaching out to him. After all, the Little Emperor was, well, the Emperor. Although he had a somewhat casual demeanor, he was still the Emperor. Now, the Emperor was humbly saying he wanted to discuss something with him?


Jian Luo put down his work and asked, “What is it?”


“I want you to livestream every day when you have time,” the Little Emperor said. “You can share some information about our offspring, or even just cooking.”


“… Why?” Jian Luo was puzzled.


The Little Emperor answered straightforwardly, “Because the data from the Phoenix Platform in the past two days shows that after your last livestream, the overall national happiness index increased by 20%, social benefits went up, and even Dark Star’s stocks hit the limit up. Moreover, more people who were originally resistant to the idea of having offspring are now signing up for it.”


“???” Jian Luo widened his eyes. “Is that for real?”


The Little Emperor sighed and finally got to the point, “So, Luo Luo, I want you to consider it. If you can spare time for daily livestreams, we’ll treat it as a job, and you’ll receive 1 million credits in your account every month. As a significant contributor to humanity, we’ll also waive various taxes for you.”


Jian Luo pondered for a moment. It seemed feasible. He was in dire need of money to invest in building factories and acquiring new protective shields. Earlier, he had calculated that he would need at least a billion credits as initial capital. Additionally, the interstellar delivery company he had planned, along with the research and development of bubble tea, required funding. Now, he had a job that could earn him money without much hassle, so how could he refuse?


Thinking it over, Jian Luo responded, “Alright, I agree. I’ll make sure the minimum length of each livestream is not less than one hour, or I won’t be comfortable taking the money.”


The Little Emperor chuckled, “You’ve got it. Otherwise, if the stream is too short, Lu Shifeng may not approve.”




Jian Luo suddenly had a frightening thought, “Did you discuss this with Dragon Brother?”


The Little Emperor sighed, “I did, but he declined. He said you should rest properly and not tire yourself every day.”


Of course, he did. Jian Luo sighed inwardly. He wasn’t tired at all. As long as there was money to be made, he would gladly go out and make it.



After brushing off the Little Emperor, Jian Luo began organizing the herbs. Although Lu Shifeng had mentioned that the Queen was pretending, Jian Luo took the herb mixing seriously.


After consulting with a traditional Chinese medicine recipe and double-checking the dosages, he began brewing the medicine. During the process, Secretary Jin came by and was nearly overwhelmed by the scent, “Luo Luo, what are you cooking?”


“Medicine,” Jian Luo replied without looking up. “Want to taste it?”


“No, thanks. Enjoy it yourself,” Secretary Jin declined.




Not just Secretary Jin, even Lu Shifeng could detect the herbal aroma that seemed to cling to Jian Luo. Although the Marshal never voiced his aversion, it was clear that he noticed it.


Jian Luo was puzzled, “Is it really that bad?”


The answer became clear during one of his livestreams that evening. While he was cooking, the nearby pot of medicine was almost done, so Jian Luo went to check it. When he lifted the lid, an intense medicinal smell filled the entire livestream room, nearly driving away the viewers who had some reservations about the odor.


“Biochemical weapon?”


“I’ve never smelled anything so bad in my life.”


“Jian Luo, you work so hard.”


“Poor guy, experiencing this pain when giving birth.”


All at once, there was a surge of virtual gifts, and everyone expressed sympathy for Jian Luo, advising him to take care of his health.


Jian Luo, “…”


Due to the viewers’ comments, Jian Luo felt a bit disheartened. That night, he received a bit of a shock when Lu Shifeng returned home.


Jian Luo sniffed himself and moved closer to Lu Shifeng, almost squeezing himself into the man’s arms. He extended his arm and brought it close to Lu Shifeng’s face, saying, “Do you think the medicine smell on me is bad?”


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow and said, “Not unpleasant.”


“Stop lying.” Jian Luo wanted to expose his true thoughts, so he moved even closer, almost pushing himself into Lu Shifeng’s embrace. He held his arm up to Lu Shifeng’s face, “Smell it again.”


Lu Shifeng had nowhere to escape but chose to remain still. He raised an eyebrow and said, “Jian Luo.”


Jian Luo, “Hmm?”


“If you keep doing this, I won’t go any further.”


“I just remembered something.”


Of course, the person who suffered the most from the smell was the Queen, who had to drink the unpleasant medicinal soup even though she was pretending to be ill.


Jian Luo couldn’t fathom what the Queen was thinking. It could be due to her control being compromised, but her illness actually began to improve. On the day they were leaving, a grand farewell banquet was held.


Jian Luo wiped away the sweat on his forehead and commented, “Is the room decoration on the Industrial Star always this hardcore?”


Secretary Jin replied, “Seems like it.”


The entire venue was filled with various metallic and mechanical elements, making it look more like a factory than a banquet hall, which was quite unusual.


The Queen and the Commander were standing together in front, looking exceptionally harmonious. She was dressed in a red gown today, and her complexion had improved significantly. Her once innocent appearance had transformed into something entirely different. She seemed to sense Jian Luo’s gaze and looked over.


Jian Luo quickly averted his eyes.


The Queen might have choked on something because she suddenly started coughing violently, gasping for breath. Her hand holding the red wine glass trembled, causing some of it to spill.


The Commander was anxious, “Vanessa, Vanessa?”


The Queen’s face turned pale, and she shook her head lightly, “I’m fine, Your Majesty. You don’t need to worry.”


“Where’s the royal physician? The royal physician?” The Commander looked around frantically, finally spotting Jian Luo. He hurried over and said, “Can the divine physician take a look at my beloved Consort?”


Jian Luo hesitated for a moment, “Of course.”


He took a few steps forward to stand beside the Queen. She whispered, “I feel a bit short of breath. It’s nothing serious, divine physician, don’t worry. I’ll rest in my room.”


That was just perfect.


Jian Luo stepped back a pace, “In that case, Your Excellency, please go and rest.”


The Queen smiled and stepped down, saying, “Luo Luo, if you have the chance, you can come back and play here.”


Jian Luo nodded.


With the Queen’s departure, his nervous energy dissipated somewhat, but he couldn’t shake the feeling that this woman was quite peculiar.


Secretary Jin, who was nearby, was eating, “These energy candies on Industrial Star are really good.”


Jian Luo, after taking a bite, savored the taste and praised, “Indeed, they are.”


However, something unexpected happened. Soon after eating, his stomach began to feel uncomfortable.


This can’t be right…


Jian Luo furrowed his brow and told Secretary Jin, “I need to use the restroom.”


Secretary Jin was still eating, and not far away, Lu Shifeng was finalizing some discussions with the Commander. She said, “I’ll come with you.”


Jian Luo didn’t want a girl to accompany him to the restroom, so he replied, “Wait for me outside.”


Secretary Jin agreed.


After entering the restroom and relieving his discomfort, Jian Luo sighed and decided that he would avoid eating alien food in the future. It didn’t seem to agree with his digestion.


As he turned to leave the restroom, just as he was about to step out, a protective shield blocked his way. Then, a figure wearing a red dress appeared in the doorway. It was the Queen.


Jian Luo asked, “Your Excellency?”


The Queen leaned against the door, “You’re not going outside?”


Jian Luo said as he washed his hands, “I’m going outside. But it’s almost as if I expected you to be here, considering you’ve had your eye on me for a while.”


The Queen even admired Jian Luo’s boldness by now.


She straightened up a bit, “Aren’t you afraid of what I might do to you?”


Jian Luo shook his head, “If I were you, I wouldn’t be foolish enough to take action. At least there’s some value in me as a hostage.”


The Queen chuckled, “So, did you intentionally let me succeed?”


Jian Luo shook his head, “I’m not supporting you.”


There was a moment of silence in the air.


The Queen’s face darkened, and after a while, she said, “You know, he forced me to steal, to treat me during my illness. You’ve seen the bruises on my body. On the surface, he treats me well, but in private, he’s been abusive. If I don’t feign illness, he’d subject me to even more torture.”


Jian Luo let out a soft sigh.


The Queen leaned against the door, “I need your help. Your man is Lu Shifeng, and even if you do something, no one will dare to hold you responsible.”


That was her plan.


Jian Luo scoffed, “Do you think I’m a fool? If I help you, what about Dragon Brother’s order for protective shields? And you’re joking about the lives of the soldiers in the military. Do you think I’m a saint?”


The Queen looked surprised. She stood up straight, incredulously gazing at Jian Luo, “You really care about those people?”


Jian Luo, “…”


Not really, I just don’t want to die.


Jian Luo looked at the red-eyed Queen and thought back to the injuries he had seen when diagnosing her illness. It left him feeling sympathetic. He had always been against domestic violence and mind control, even with Lu Shifeng. Although Lu Shifeng often appeared domineering, in reality, he was very gentle and considerate.


In their relationship, when Jian Luo said no, Lu Shifeng wouldn’t force him. Moreover, Lu Shifeng was not a dictator; they could discuss any issue, no matter how frustrating it might be. They always found a reasonable solution.


Jian Luo considered for a moment, “What’s your plan?”


Seeing a slight softening in his attitude, the Queen continued, “Luo Luo, I already have someone ready to receive me. I’ve made thorough preparations for this day, all to escape the grasp of these people.”


Jian Luo was a little surprised but nodded, “Then why bother stopping me?”


The Queen removed the protective shield and approached Jian Luo, taking his hand, “Let’s leave together!”


Jian Luo, “?!!”


Standing in front of him, the woman in the red dress took out a magnet from her pocket, a style Jian Luo had seen on the Dark Star. She said, “This can disable the tracking device specially designed by the Dark Star. I’ve been in the palace all this time just to obtain this magnet. When your Dark Star’s warship passed by, they removed the magnet for the protective shields, and I managed to copy one.”




Before Jian Luo’s eyes, the Queen’s information bracelet was deactivated.


Jian Luo stared, “You really opened it.”

“Luo Luo, I genuinely want to save you. I can see that you’re not truly willing to be with him either, because there is love between you. I am a telepath, and I can sense it.” The Queen tied up her hair, revealing the wounds on her neck. She continued, “And I have some knowledge about Dark Star. Some things I don’t know if you’re aware of, but I must tell you…”


Jian Luo asked, “What?”


The Queen smiled and said, “If you think Lu Shifeng truly loves you, you’re mistaken. If I remember correctly, during the upheaval on Dark Star, when the planet’s magnetic field was disturbed and the environment became harsh, each planet has its own unique energy. For this, Lu Shifeng ordered the slaughter of many lower civilizations and took their planet’s core crystals.”


Jian Luo stared at her, unable to believe what he was hearing.


“The Earth, the mother planet of humanity, was also on that list,” the Queen said to convince him. “Have you ever found Dark Star to be strange? Why are there infertility and physical deficiencies among their people? It’s because they were a doomed race to begin with, but they forcibly altered their fate by taking the energy from other planets.”


Jian Luo’s face darkened, and he asked, “So, what are you saying?”


The Queen waved her hand, “My planet was also on the list. The act of taking the planet’s core was taboo, and most civilizations that were affected were eradicated. Only a few exceptions exist, and I am one of them. I was taken. As for humanity, the reason why they are kept by the people of Dark Star might be a way for the Dark Star to delude themselves and seek redemption.”


Jian Luo’s heart was racing, his palms were sweaty, and he resisted, “Do you have any evidence?”


The Queen didn’t argue, “Whether it’s true or not, you will find out one day. I don’t need to deceive you. I’m just telling you the truth. Today is the only chance to escape. If you miss it, the next opportunity may be much harder to come by. I’ve already chosen a place where no one will find us, and we can start over. There will be no inequality there, and no one will force us to do anything. Will you come with me?”

Chapter 135 – Who Says Omegas Can’t be as Explosive as Alphas

Chapter 135: Extra Story Six


In the world of Alphas, Betas and Omegas, the Alpha-Omega and Beta-Beta pairings are the most common, yet in the military, this unique setting unquestionably necessitates Alpha-Alpha or Alpha-Beta pairings.


Although Alphas have their own sensitive periods, they’re evidently easier to manage compared to an Omega’s heat.


So, when Su Qian’s relationship with Yan Hebin was revealed, it wasn’t well-received by those around them for quite some time.


Since Yu Qingcang had settled with Ren Jin, he had moved past his silent admiration for Yan Hebin. Upon hearing about these two being together, his initial response wasn’t that his coveted Omega was taken by his brother, but rather a very practical inquiry, “How do you plan to handle future heats?”


Typically, during an Omega’s younger years, suppressing the heat during that time is possible with suppressants. However, these drugs have a limited effect, and prolonged use builds immunity. Relying solely on suppressants for life is unrealistic. While some Omegas are averse to marriage, enduring the heat remains an excruciating experience.


Su Qian had evidently pondered this issue early on and simply smiled, “Don’t worry, I’ve been developing a specialized potion.”


“…,” Yu Qingcang was momentarily choked, finally stating, “Forget I asked.”


Alright, the world of academic elites apparently didn’t require concern from ordinary mortals like them.


Look at those affluent individuals, often lavishing fortunes for a smile, while these non-human entities at the pinnacle of scientific research casually engage in exclusive medical studies. Incomparable, truly incomparable.


While such exaggerated claims might be mere bluster if placed on Lu Jingning, Su Qian would never engage in such falsehoods. Yu Qingcang understood him too well, never questioning his words.


In reality, upon establishing a rapport with Yan Hebin, Su Qian had already begun planning this research project. After many years, it had finally borne fruit.


Yan Hebin knew how much effort Su Qian invested in this project. Countless nights, he witnessed Su Qian’s figure in the personal lab, departing only at daybreak.


Though it was a profoundly significant research project for both, it was still a personal matter, relegated to moments carved out between work hours.


The intensity was staggering.


Hence, when he saw the blue potion displayed before him, Yan Hebin didn’t say much, but internally felt an unprecedented tenderness.


He had always been emotionally detached. Initially, when he met Su Qian, he never imagined this man would enter his life in such a manner. Yet now, there was no trace of regret.


Undeniably, Omegas are highly influenced by pheromones. Many asked him what he would do if he encountered an Alpha with an extremely high compatibility. Yan Hebin pondered this but always had one answer— he would choose Su Qian.


For an Omega, missing out on the sensation of being enveloped by pheromones was undoubtedly regretful, yet he willingly sacrificed this physiological pleasure to follow his true feelings.


Su Qian was a remarkable presence, not requiring extensive communication in ordinary times. Merely standing quietly nearby offered an unparalleled sense of tranquility.


His presence lacked any significant pressure and never induced discomfort. Like air, it brought comfort and reassurance without being indispensable.


Yan Hebin knew he liked this tranquility.



As always, when Yan Hebin’s heat arrived, it was a time of great tension for both.


However, something was different this time. Su Qian had completed an incredibly lengthy research project, and the blue potion became a special entity.


As this project was tailored for Yan Hebin, Su Qian gave this potion an exceptionally straightforward name, “Hebin.”


From dating to marriage, there hadn’t been an excess of sweet words between them. Yet these three words alone were the most moving endearments Yan Hebin had heard in his life.


Sometimes, love was like this. In unanticipated moments, it would rush in, making everything romantically chaotic.


Yan Hebin’s heat started in the morning, initially with vague hints before gradually intensifying.


Su Qian adeptly prepared the bathtub, then carried the drowsy Yan Hebin into the bedroom, undressed him, and gently placed him into the water.


Yan Hebin, flushed all over, had a hint of daze in his gaze. As Su Qian attended to him, Yan Hebin didn’t resist, merely let out a soft sigh upon feeling the water’s temperature, then slowly shut his eyes.


Su Qian carefully wiped around his glands and glanced at his current state, asking, “Feeling terrible?”


In his hazy state, Yan Hebin seemed too drained even to open his eyes, softly shaking his head in response, “I’m okay… Continue.”


He practically lay limp in the bathtub. Su Qian felt the body shiver slightly beyond his control as he wiped. It was evident, the agony was intense.


He had never thought much about his Beta status, but whenever Yan Hebin’s heat arrived, he wished he were an Alpha; things would have been simpler.


However, after all these years, the suppressants’ effect on Yan Hebin had significantly diminished, which was why they chose to use the new potion today.


Without delay, Su Qian finished wiping and carefully extracted the blue liquid into a syringe from the sterilized container. Gently injecting it into the cleansed glands, the sensitive area responded, causing Yan Hebin’s breathing to grow unavoidably heavier.


A peculiar sensation surged within him, clouding his already confused mind. His lips quivered slightly, instinctively tensing a bit.


Su Qian kept a close eye on Yan Hebin’s condition. Beads of sweat formed on his forehead, swiftly wiped away by a towel, only to reappear relentlessly, leaving an impression of an uncleanable steam pot.


Yet, Su Qian remained patient, one hand placed in the other’s palm, letting him squeeze tightly, while the other meticulously repeated the routine wiping.


Yan Hebin, in his haze, felt something in his hand as his sole anchor, subconsciously gripping it, using every ounce of strength as a last resort.


Amidst this tense atmosphere, thankfully, the potion’s effects soon manifested. The heat, about to erupt fiercely, seemed to be abruptly cut off, and the pheromones coursing within were quietly and completely absorbed due to an unseen force.


Tailored precisely for Yan Hebin’s pheromonal attributes, the potion’s effect was swift.


What was fortunate was that everything unfolded as anticipated. Su Qian ensured Yan Hebin endured minimal discomfort, preemptively mitigating any foreseeable risks before its formal use.


When Yan Hebin opened his eyes to the dark night outside, his body no longer bore the scorching sensation. In his daze, it felt as if he had just experienced an incredibly long dream, an inexplicable exhaustion lingering.


He couldn’t recall when Su Qian had carried him to bed. His body, devoid of any sweat marks now meticulously cleaned, made the lingering scent of Omega pheromones seem somewhat unreal.


“Awake? How do you feel?” Su Qian’s voice, gentle as always, softened even more as Yan Hebin turned to look at him. The curve of his lips softened, “I’d probably be very happy if you tell me it worked well.”


Under his smile, Yan Hebin’s mind briefly wandered, nodding slightly, “Yes, it worked well.”


His voice, husky due to immense fatigue, carried an unprecedented gentleness.


Su Qian noticed his chapped lips and quickly poured a glass of warm water, handing it over. He sat there, watching Yan Hebin drink, his eyes filled with tenderness.


Yan Hebin’s throat, previously fiery, finally eased after the sip of water. As he glanced up, his gaze fell on the small contraption at Su Qian’s side. His movement halted, “You…”


Su Qian gave a faint smile, “The gift you gave me is quite useful.”


Yan Hebin pursed his lips, a rare flicker of uncertainty in his expression, “My pheromones…”


Su Qian watched the suspicious blush creeping up his neck, his smile growing even softer, “Just as I imagined, I really like it.”


This time, Yan Hebin was too flustered to say anything.


Su Qian, being a Beta unable to smell Omega pheromones, had received a pheromone converter from Yan Hebin as a birthday gift. Originally, Yan Hebin wanted Su Qian to experience his scent using the device. But every time his heat came, they got flustered and never used it.


Who would have thought it would be brought out at a time like this?


Handing the cup back to Su Qian, Yan Hebin pulled the covers, using the pretense of sleep to bury himself entirely. To receive praise for the scent of his pheromones from the one he loved, this was an entirely new feeling.

T/N: Hey there! There is plenty more where that came from, so stay tuned! And stay healthy! Straighten your posture, so some stretches and drink some water before continuing hehe~

Chapter 10 – The Duke (1)

       Shen Zhuofan was one of those model students who stood at the top of the pyramid when he was at Averio Academy. Legend has it that he had already read all the books on guide’s skill management before graduation, and he was very good at guiding mental power, guiding tendrils and consciousness manipulation.


       “Consciousness hypnosis is a very important thing. Although many of them are banned in the guidebook, I think it is very useful.” Shen Zhuofan earnestly taught Qin Yun, “The guide can even self-hypnotise. Of course I haven’t verified this. It’s said that only those at the god-level can achieve it.”

       Qin Yun glanced at him suspiciously, “So you have hypnotised a sentinel?”

       Shen Zhuofan: “…Although you are bad at learning, your sense of gossip is quite impressive.”

       “Actually, it’s not difficult to guess.” Qin Yun shrugged, “I’m not a fool… I have brought you a special heat stabilizer for two years… Only guides who have undergone the final marking experience will have a forced heat period every month.”

       Qin Yun glanced at Shen Zhuofan’s face, “Well… Why did you separate from your sentinel?”

       “…” Shen Zhuofan was silent for a while and said calmly, “To protect him.”

       Qin Yun was puzzled, “You can protect him by letting him forget about you…?”

       “Actually, I don’t know.” Shen Zhuofan sighed as if he was laughing at himself, “Maybe I am the coward… Regardless, I was the one who gave up on him first.”


       When Moschery returned to the living room, he saw his guide holding his chin in his hand in a daze. In front of him was a giant Mickey Mouse headband with half a rhinestones attached, and the tweezers in his hand were spinning.

       “What are you thinking about?” Moschery unbuttoned the collar of his uniform, took off his gloves and threw them casually on the bed, frowning, “Don’t show Zhongyan this style; do you want it to wear these ridiculous ears all day?”

       “…” Qin Yun: “I think it really likes them… wearing them occasionally won’t hurt.”

       Moschery’s face didn’t look good, and he muttered, “Women like to pamper their children.”

       Qin Yun didn’t hear clearly, “Huh?”

       “If you want to paste it, paste it quickly.” Moschery said impatiently, “We have other places to go today.”

       “Oh!” Qin Yun quickly packed up his things, “Then let’s go.”

       Moschery, “Aren’t you going to finish pasting?”

       Qin Yun said proudly, “No worries, I can paste the same ones on the way. My skills are top-notch now!”


       While Moschery piloted the aircraft, he endured Qin Yun neatly arranging rows of rhinestones on the co-pilot seat. Surprisingly, Qin Yun was still in the mood to joke, “Have you ever considered sticking the rhinestones on the aircraft? That way, when Zhongyan comes out to fly, he’ll be super, super happy!”

       Moschery laughed out loud, “Do you think the emperor would drive out in a shiny aircraft?!”

       Qin Yun imagined the scene for a moment: “Well, it’s not impossible… Sparkling with a luxurious and imposing golden light, a royal tycoon gold aircraft!”

       Moschery: “…”

       It was only when he was almost done pasting on the headband that Qin Yun remembered to ask Moschery, “Where are we going?”

       His Majesty the Emperor felt a headache when he saw those shiny Mickey Mouse ears and said angrily, “The residence of Grand Duke Garcia.”

       Qin Yun blinked: “Isn’t he your biggest political enemy…”

       Moschery’s face turned dark, “And who did you hear that from?”

       Qin Yun: “That’s what they all say on the internet… Don’t you read All Universe 818? Regarding the best attire for iron ladies in the political arena, General Lane Tristana is leading the way from afar. There’s also the undeniable affair between the Secretary of State and General Skarter, but the highest-clicked documentary remains the century-long political drama of love and rivalry between the Tyrant and Duke García.

       Moschery: “…”

       “Universe Picks had your masks as their best seller.” Qin Yun enlarged the store photo and showed it to Moschery, “Is it made exactly the same?”

       Moschery took one look and almost went crazy with anger, “…How could they have the nerve to say it’s the same model?! The dragon pattern on it was designed by me myself!! This is copyright infringement! Infringement!!!”


       The Garcia family could be said to be the last nobles in the Empire. The Grand Duke Garcia Senior was not optimistic about the weak Emperor Helu at the time and preferred Cabinet governance. As the Duke who controlled half of the Empire’s military power, with his support, the Cabinet held immense influence in both court and country. This continued until Moschery ascended the throne, and the Garcia Senior changed into the Garcia Junior.

       Arthur Garcia inherited Garcia Senior’s iron-fisted approach, but his temperament was more unpredictable. He was colder and crueler than his father, just like the spiritual link of their family—the Ruthless Lion.

       Needless to say, Arthur caused Moschery a lot of trouble. He had strong military power and an unreasonable personal style. Although he did not show any political ambitions, he was still more pro-cabinet like his father.

       “I remember that Duke Garcia sent troops when we attacked D Star…even though the cabinet opposed it.” Qin Yun recalled, “Is he leaning towards the royal family now?”

       “No, Arthur is just neutral.” A look of disdain appeared on Moschery’s face, “He has been living as if he were dead in the past two years, but he has a grudge against Berlin. As long as Berlin opposes it, he supports it. It’s childish. Like a child.”

       Qin Yun was embarrassed, “How come?”

       Moschery glanced at him and said calmly, “Something happened to his guide. In order to prevent Arthur from having a mental breakdown, the guide seems to have hypnotised him and made Arthur forget about him. But how is it possible to simply forget after being marked for life? Even if Arthur doesn’t remember him, he won’t forget about who harmed the love of his life.”

       Qin Yun frowned, thinking of the powerful iron lady, “But why did Mrs. Berlin want to harm the Duke’s guide?”

       Moschery smiled sarcastically, “Of course it’s because he shook up the Cabinet’s power. In addition to the marriage, the military power possessed by Garcia is also what the Cabinet relied on to control the government for many years. Arthur’s lover, the guide, is Lin Dongliang’s schoolmate. Who do you think he will favour?”

       There was 100% trust and obedience between the guide and the sentinel who had completed the final marking. They would give priority to each other, from their thoughts to their actions, influencing each other and respecting each other until they reached the most tacit understanding.

       “Arthur’s lover trusts the royal family, and Arthur naturally values him. How can the Cabinet endure it when they find out that they are about to be sabotaged?” Moschery said coldly, “Berlin even planned to make Arthur suffer a mental breakdown and lose military power. It’s a pity that the guide in question is no pushover either. Consciousness hypnosis is a forbidden technique, and it poses considerable risks to oneself. By reaching this point, he seems to care little about whether he can survive or not.”

       Qin Yun was silent for a long time and couldn’t help but ask, “Then did he… die in the end?”

       Moschery shook his head, “I don’t know… Even if the guide is not dead, the guide’s ability will definitely be gone. The final consequences of the guide being injected with a brain nerve-destroying agent will be the same.”

       Brain nerve-destroying agents were equivalent to the ‘death penalty’ in the guide world. Due to the existence of the All Universal Guide Protection Law, although a guide who had committed a felony would not be sentenced to death, he would be forcibly injected with a brain nerve-destroying agent and permanently lose his ability to guide. The unmarked guide would become no different from ordinary people, and the guide that had been their final marking would be in extreme pain, unable to soothe his sentinel mania, and his body would still be affected by the remaining pheromones of sentinel and be forced to go into heat every month. As they watched their sentinel collapse mentally, he would eventually die of depression.


       “Arthur has been relying on the mania suppressant stabiliser in the past few years, but  things are still getting worse.” Moschery parked the aircraft outside the Duke’s mansion, “He should really thank his guide for actually using consciousness hypnosis on him in the end. Otherwise, it wouldn’t just be mania suppressant now.”

       Moschery said coldly and disdainfully, “A sentinel that cannot protect its own guide is simply trash.”

       Qin Yun: “…” It’s very pitiful for him to have his household and the love of his life broken. Your Majesty, can’t you have some sympathy?!


       The Duke’s Residence was not much smaller than the Imperial Palace. If Moschery hadn’t led the way, Qin Yun would probably have embarrassed himself, much like his first visit to the Imperial Palace.

       The butler of the mansion was a young ordinary boy. Qin Yun felt a bit familiar when he first saw him but could not recall who he looked like for a moment.

       Moschery nodded: “Long time no see, Ke Qing.”

       Ke Qing smiled, “Your Majesty, you are truly too kind.” He looked at Qin Yun and bowed respectfully, “Welcome, Mr. Qin.”

       Qin Yun hurriedly returned the greeting, still unable to figure out the other person as he stared at the other person’s face.

       “Do you think he looks like someone?” Qin Yun couldn’t help but ask Moschery on the way to the back garden, “This face is just too ordinary, isn’t it…”

       Moschery rolled his eyes at him, “It’s not common. Haven’t you noticed that every man in this house looks a bit like him?”

       Qin Yun was startled. He took a peek around and found that it was actually true!

       Moschery snorted coldly, “Even though the person is forgotten, there is always an obsession in the subconsciousness. This Garcia person is engraved with the word ‘persistence’ even in his soul.”

Chapter 95 – "Do you understand what I mean?"

Chapter 95 – “Do you understand what I mean?”


The barrage of viewers went into a frenzy.


The Dark Star people had been childless for so many years, and while they were powerful, no one dared to mock them for their deadly weakness. But that didn’t mean they wouldn’t feel difficult and sad about not having children.


Just like ordinary people walking down the street, seeing someone holding a child’s hand, seeing someone shopping for their child, seeing someone preparing for pregnancy, and someone struggling with the idea of having a child. Whether happy or sad, it was something that made people envious.


And now, a hologram made them feel the fetal movements!




“I’m crying.”


“Ah, little one, I love you.”


“Please, can the streamer start broadcasting?”


Almost everyone who had activated the hologram felt the happiness of the fetal movements, and such feelings were not common in everyone’s lives.


The Dark Star people were not short of money; on the contrary, they were very generous. As long as they were moved enough, they wouldn’t be stingy.


For a while, the gifts in the entire live stream room kept coming, densely packed. Jian Luo’s live stream room had climbed to the top of the Dark Star’s live broadcast ranking. It had always hovered around the fourth or fifth position, but this small event had quickly pushed it to the top.


“Brothers, it’s worth investing.”


“Amazing, I’ve experienced the feeling of fetal movements in my lifetime.”


“Streamer, I’m following you now!”


Jian Luo hadn’t expected this. He had wanted to do a cooking live stream, but the baby in his belly casually stretched and turned over, and suddenly, he became popular.


Is this an unfair world?


Jian Luo put his mask back on and said, “Alright, let’s continue cooking the boiled fish.”


The fire in the pot was almost ready, and he opened the lid while talking to the audience. “As I mentioned earlier, when preparing this fish, you should mix it with starch. This way, it won’t become too tender, and it will have a better texture.”


The soup in the pot was almost ready, bubbling with hot steam. The aroma of chili, which had always been a food that could touch the heartstrings of anyone just by its smell, filled the air. He put the fish into the pot and added the prepared side dishes.


Jian Luo explained, “I’ve chosen bean sprouts and potatoes for the side dishes, but you can use whatever you like, it doesn’t have to be the same as mine.”


The viewers expressed dissatisfaction with the fish:


“This fish has too many bones.”


“Ah, I hate it, it’s so fishy.”


“Meow? I think it’s okay.”


“Streamer, eat less, don’t hurt the baby with the bones.”


Jian Luo was shocked by the barrage of comments. In the eyes of the Dark Star people, what did a human look like, and how could bones harm the baby?


After some thought, Jian Luo said, “Don’t worry, I’ve chosen a fish with fewer bones, and it won’t be a problem. Moreover, for the fishy smell, I’ve done some preparation to remove it. Some people may not have done this step and cooked it directly, which is why it may be fishy.”


His secretary handed him a cup of Red Heart Dragon Fruit Juice.


Jian Luo accepted it and said, “Thank you.”


This cup of milk tea quickly caught the attention of many people. Dark Star people usually drank nutrient solutions, which were typically green. Who would have something so bright and eye-catching as red?


“What is the streamer drinking?”


“It looks really good.”


“Ah, why is it so sweet?”


According to the shared taste sensation of the hologram, the taste of the Red Heart Dragon Fruit was truly exceptional. It was sweet with a hint of sourness, which balanced out the sweetness. One sip made people want to take another, as if it would never get boring. The little soft pearls inside the Dragon Fruit were delightful to chew, and the flavor was unmatched.


Jian Luo took a few sips and explained, “This is Dragon Fruit juice.”


Dark Star people were stunned.


Before this, they were aware of Dragon Fruit, and the vast majority of them had eaten it. However, the taste had been very unsatisfactory, bitter and very sour. According to the Dragon Fruit’s lore, it should only taste sweet when consumed by the pregnant father. Everyone knew that pregnant fathers experienced sweetness, but they had never imagined it would be like this! This was completely different from the taste of their beverage!


“I’m crying.”

“It’s too good.”

“But maybe only he can taste this flavor.”


Jian Luo saw that many people were talking about this drink in the barrage and said, “No, actually, I tried to make a milk tea, and the taste for those who aren’t pregnant is not bad either. But the amount of Red Heart Dragon Fruit available for sale in bulk is limited. If you like it, I can use other fruits to make juice.”


After all, he was relatively poor now, and he needed to make money in any way he could.


The audience responded enthusiastically:


“Damn, this fruit is so sweet.”


“I’m in on this project!”


“Man, when will nutrient solutions taste this good? Is thos why am I so thin?”


Since Jian Luo started thinking about making money, he began paying attention to the barrage, the preferences of these wealthy patrons, and where the money was going.


It seemed that his general direction was correct. How could there be no Happy Fat Otaku Water without snacks?


Jian Luo said, “I’ll try to research it, and I’ll share it with everyone as soon as it’s available.”


The fish in the pot had started to emit a tantalizing aroma. Jian Luo took the opportunity to add the seasoning, and the fish in the pot was cooked to perfection, with tender meat and a delightful spicy flavor.


Jian Luo held up a piece of fish for the camera, making it clear for everyone. “When you’re eating, do be careful of the thorns. The finished product looks like this.”


Originally, some viewers were concerned that it might be fishy, but when the actual dish came out, most of them were completely satisfied.


“No fishy taste at all.”


“Darn, this is so good.”


“I can’t handle the spiciness, ahh.”


Jian Luo shared some with the secretary and took a few bites himself. He noticed that some viewers couldn’t handle the spiciness and fell into deep thought. Indeed, it would be better to consider everyone’s tastes. Now that he was pregnant, he naturally prioritized his own preferences, choosing to make dishes that were spicier and more flavorful. But since he was aiming to make money, he realized he needed to be more considerate of others.


After finishing the dish, Jian Luo continued to interact with the audience. Just as he was about to close the backstage window, he received a message from Jiang Jiang. He opened the message and found that most of them were about Da Yu.


Jiang Jiang: “Luo Luo, I heard about what happened with Da Yu. Don’t be angry, he didn’t mean to trouble you intentionally. It’s just that some viewers couldn’t understand the situation, and it caused an argument. Don’t be mad.”


Jian Luo replied: “It’s okay, I don’t mind.”


Jiang Jiang: “Luo Luo, most of our streamers have schedules. Usually, the bigger ones avoid each other. How about I give you the schedule so you can check and try to avoid streaming at the same time as someone else? It’s not that you’re afraid of them, but it might reduce the conflicts among your fans.”


Jian Luo, while peeling edamame with his secretary, replied through voice messages, “My schedule isn’t fixed. I stream when I have time, so I can’t specifically avoid someone.”


Jiang Jiang was in a bit of a dilemma.


Jian Luo felt a bit exhausted. He said, “I’ll post a statement on the Star Network to clarify the situation and ask everyone not to bring this up elsewhere.”


Jiang Jiang was relieved. “Thank you!”


Jian Luo felt like he had solved the issue, but he hadn’t expected that after chatting with Jiang Jiang, he received another private message. Without much thought, he opened the window.


Da Yu: “Are you there?”




Jian Luo remained silent for a while, then replied, “Yes, what’s up?”


“Sorry about today,” Da Yu messaged him. “Next time, if a situation like this arises, I’ll stop streaming.”


Jian Luo: “?”


Da Yu: “You don’t mind?”


Jian Luo: “There’s no need for that.”


Did this guy really think he was so petty? In fact, he didn’t take this kind of thing seriously at all. These fans of the Dark Star people were not as tough as the keyboard warriors of the 21st century.


Da Yu: “You’re not mad?”


Jian Luo typed, “Why would I be mad? You haven’t caused any impact on me, but I may have affected your popularity, right? You don’t need to apologize. Let’s both do our best!”


Da Yu wanted to say something more, but after showing “typing” for a while, he deleted it and didn’t say anything in the end.


Jian Luo wasn’t in the mood to comfort him. He quickly closed the window.


“Ding dong.”


The sound of knocking came from the door.


Jian Luo paused in his edamame-peeling, looking curiously at his secretary. “Is Long Ge back?”


The secretary stood up. “He shouldn’t be back. The Marshal has a meeting today, and he won’t return until the evening. How could he be back so soon?”


She went to open the door, and the person standing there surprised her.


The Queen smiled at her. “I hope I’m not disturbing you.”


The secretary stepped aside. “Your Majesty, what brings you here?”


“We met briefly during a banquet, and I’ve been wanting to visit Mr. Jian ever since. I hope I’m not causing any inconvenience.”


Jian Luo stood up when he saw her. “Not at all.”


The Queen had a delicate and gentle appearance, exuding the aura of a friendly neighbor. She smelled the delicious aroma in the room and sighed sincerely, “It smells so good.”


Jian Luo gestured towards the fish. “I made some home-cooked dishes. I hope you don’t mind.”


The Queen looked at the fish on the table, her eyes widened, but her politeness didn’t allow her to say anything. She said, “I’ve come at mealtime; I didn’t realize. I can come back another time.”


The secretary, exhausted in the background, understood too much.


Jian Luo smiled, “No problem, the food isn’t ready yet. If you don’t mind waiting, you can stay and eat together.”


“Would that be too much trouble?”


“Just one more pair of chopsticks.”


Perhaps deep down, there was always the warmth of the Chinese people. Humans were social animals, and gathering together was natural.


But for the Dark Star people, and even those from Industrial Star, it was quite an unusual occurrence.


Even the Queen had low expectations and didn’t think Jian Luo would agree.


The Queen was moved and said, “Thank you.”


Jian Luo replied, “You’re welcome.”


Since the dishes were not cooked yet and there was no rice steamed, Jian Luo asked the Queen to wait a bit. He continued peeling edamame beans and asked about the Queen’s health to prepare medication for her later.


The Queen asked, “Can I help out with anything?”


Jian Luo didn’t let her do anything. “No need.”


The Queen was very polite and said, “It’s no trouble; I’m not that delicate. Let me help.”


Jian Luo refused, “No, my concern is that you have asthma, and it might hinder more than help.”




Jian Luo was a stubborn man.


After peeling all the vegetables, Jian Luo began preparing the stir-fry. During this time, he finally understood one of the Queen’s peculiar symptoms.


The Queen’s condition was unique. She had been brought back by the King from the Strong Star, and her body was partially weak due to illness and partially due to the psychological stress she suffered, leading to depression. The reason the Queen felt close to him had a lot to do with the fact that she thought she was “stolen” back by him.




A strange logic.


Jian Luo tried to explain, “In fact, the Marshal didn’t force me to do anything.”


The Queen lowered her gaze and spoke with some difficulty, “I understand. In fact, he didn’t force me either.”


No, you don’t understand.


Jian Luo didn’t know how to comfort her and simply said, “I can try to help you manage your asthma, but you need to pull yourself together as well. Since things have come to this point, hurting your own body won’t help, right?”


The Queen’s eyelashes trembled, and she looked at the healthy and cheerful Jian Luo. “Your attitude is admirable.”




You’ve probably misunderstood something.


After all the dishes were stir-fried, Jian Luo served a portion to wait for Long Shi Feng to return after his meeting. Then he placed the remaining food on the table. “Let’s eat.”


The Queen sat down and picked up a piece of water-boiled fish, which she had been craving. She put it in her mouth and exclaimed, “Mmm!”


Jian Luo paused with his chopsticks. “What’s wrong?”


“It’s spicy.” The Queen’s eyes were watery. “It’s so good.”


Jian Luo said, “You can’t eat too much spice with your asthma. A couple of bites should satisfy your craving. Have some more vegetables.”




The Queen felt a bit downhearted. Her love for spicy food exceeded Jian Luo’s expectations. She said, “If you could leave this here, I could eat it for the rest of my life.”


Jian Luo said, “You can watch my live stream, and you’ll get the full holographic experience.”


The Queen asked, “The interstellar Live Stream?”


Jian Luo paused, suddenly realizing a question he had overlooked all this time. Why had he been streaming exclusively on Dark Star? Why not expand to the entire Interstellar network? It could potentially bring in more money, couldn’t it? He decided to discuss this with Jiang Jiang later.


Jian Luo said, “I’ll consider that. Additionally, if you ever want to eat physical food, I’ll check if there are delivery or frozen food services available.”


The Queen commented, “There are very few such services available in Interstellar now.”


Jian Luo’s chopsticks paused as he recognized another business opportunity. Selling services! It was amazing how his perspective had changed since he started thinking about making money. There were opportunities everywhere. These ideas seemed quite feasible, but it would require some effort.


Jian Luo said, “If we only cater to individual orders, it might not be cost-effective, and we might end up losing money.”


The Queen suggested, “We could bulk deliver. For example, this water-boiled fish dish, we can have people on our planet group together and place orders in bulk when we reach a certain quantity.”


An entrepreneurial genius! Jian Luo thought it made sense.


The Queen added, “Even for those who are not well-off, they can use resources as an exchange. For example, our Industrial Star produces energy stones. Could we arrange resource exchange?”


Jian Luo’s eyes lit up. “Energy stones?”


The Queen asked, “You’re probably not familiar with them, right? People like us have nothing to do with things like energy stones that are used for planetary development. You humans should consider yourselves lucky to be associated with the Marshal and enjoy your blessings.”


Jian Luo said, “I’m sorry; I might need those.”




After finishing the meal, they went their separate ways.


Jian Luo was now brimming with enthusiasm, eager to put his plans into action one by one. He decided to take a shower before starting.


He rummaged through his closet, and he realized that the clothes he had taken from the military ship were all sealed in bags, and he had never opened them. He randomly picked one of the bags and headed to the bathroom.


After the shower, when he opened the bag to change clothes, he was dumbfounded. The clothes in the bag were tiger-striped and looked thick but were surprisingly lightweight. He was sure he hadn’t bought this outfit, and their wardrobe mostly consisted of military uniforms, with his being the only colorful one. This outfit seemed quite flashy and colorful, so it must be his.


Where did it come from?


Jian Luo wracked his brain, trying to remember. Finally, he recalled that it was a gift from Aya! What kind of clothes was it?


As soon as he put it on, he understood Aya’s intention. But it was beyond words:


The clothes had a little tail at the back, allowing it to wag playfully. The top was very loose and comfortable, with a hood that had two fuzzy little ears, giving it a cute and lively look.




Aya, what are you up to?

T/N: Hey there! There is plenty more where that came from, so stay tuned! And stay healthy! Straighten your posture, so some stretches and drink some water before continuing hehe~

Chapter 134 – Who Says Omegas Can’t be as Explosive as Alphas

Chapter 134: Extra Story Five


The brief holiday swiftly came to an end. After tidying up their belongings, the two who needed to return to the military put the coal ball into the cat cage and boarded a private lightship.


Originally, one significant reason for keeping the coal ball was to ensure that Ye Ling wouldn’t feel too lonely at home during their absence. Taking this opportunity, they decided to bring it along.


Today, upon hearing that the little black cat was finally arriving home, Ye Ling appeared quite delighted and had been waiting eagerly by the door.


Joining Ye Ling at the door was Lulu, who had already adjusted the pet care program.


As one of Lu Xuebai’s outstanding all-purpose household robots, Lulu warmly welcomed the arrival of the coal ball and had done thorough homework to ensure the new member received meticulous care at home.


At first, the coal ball felt somewhat unfamiliar with its new home. After staying in the living room for a while, it gradually gained courage and eventually dared to stick its head out of the cage.


However, before it could fully grasp its surroundings, a shadow suddenly loomed over it.


Upon looking up, it saw on the display screen what appeared to be an extremely bizarre smiling face.


Lulu had searched extensively on the Star Network and finally settled on this expression, which it considered friendly and amiable. Speaking in a pure electronic tone, it greeted, “Hello, little kitty!”


The coal ball suddenly stiffened all over, and in an instant, its fur bristled up entirely. With a swift wave of its paw, it vigorously scratched and then turned around without looking back, darting away.


Unprepared, Lulu was pushed over, staring at the empty ceiling in disbelief. Countless thoughts flashed through its computer program in an instant.


“What just happened? How did I get pushed over? Could it be that this cute little kitty doesn’t like me?”


As an all-purpose household robot, Lulu felt an unprecedented sense of shame at that moment, questioning its self-awareness for the first time.


“How could such a situation be allowed to happen!”


Lu Jingning sat next to Wen Xingchen, listening to Ye Ling’s casual chatter. Catching a glimpse with his peripheral vision, he noticed the two little creatures already engaged in a playful chase. He blinked with interest and remarked, “Looks like Lulu and the coal ball seem to get along well, huh?”


At this, Wen Xingchen lifted his head, watching the coal ball’s frantic escapades, and gradually overlaid a familiar scene in his mind. Unable to contain his laughter, he said, “Get along? Are you sure?”


Lu Jingning, puzzled, asked, “Isn’t it?”


However, despite the lively scene in the living room, Ye Ling appeared incredibly content. Seeing several decorations repeatedly knocked over, instead of showing any signs of annoyance, he wore a pleased smile. “Exactly, a home should be like this, a bit lively is better.”


Lu Jingning asked, “So, are we leaving the coal ball to Lulu?”


Ye Ling’s eyes curved with a smile. “Lulu seems to really like this little kitty. I think it’s good.”


Listening to the conversation between the two, Wen Xingchen couldn’t help but glance at the almost overflowing red signal on Lulu’s display screen.


It was genuinely evident, the feeling of liking.


How should I put it… it could only be said that these two were indeed mother and son.


As a household robot, Lulu had to admit it had its methods.


That afternoon, the initially evasive coal ball was finally completely tamed, all thanks to a fragrant catnip.


Lu Jingning watched the small black bundle rolling around on the floor and couldn’t help but marvel. Reflecting on his own previous attempts, he couldn’t help but feel a bit sour. “Such a simple method, why didn’t I think of it?”


The display screen on Lulu was filled with victorious expressions. “Because I am Lulu, an all-purpose household robot!”


Listening to this incredibly proud tone, one might expect it to burst into radiant light on the spot. After saying this, it no longer paid any attention to Lu Jingning, happily playing with its newfound love, the little coal ball.


Standing in place, Lu Jingning stared for a long time at those two figures gradually receding into the distance.


Somehow, he felt a bit like Luo Kongbin now: “Brother Wen, what should I do? I think I’m starting to feel jealous of Lulu.”


Wen Xingchen glanced at him. “Have you ever been jealous of me?”


Lu Jingning almost instantly replied without much thought, “How could I not? How do you know I haven’t been jealous?”


Wen Xingchen inquired, “Hmm? When?”


Under his gaze, Lu Jingning instinctively looked out of the window, hummed twice, and said, “Of course, there have been. But when it comes to feeling jealous, how could I let you, the person involved, know?”


Chapter 134: Extra Chapter Five


Wen Xingchen coaxed, “But I want to know.”


“Huh?” Lu Jingning felt his sight dimming, turned around, and indeed saw someone shamelessly leaning closer. He couldn’t help but smile and push him away, “You’re in my house, behave.”


“I’m not doing anything.” Wen Xingchen looked at him with a smile that didn’t quite reach his eyes, lightly pinching his gland, his gaze carrying a hint of coaxing, “Next time you feel jealous, you must tell me. I really want to know.”


Seeing this shameless demeanor resurface, Lu Jingning couldn’t help but laugh. He teased, “What if I don’t want you to know?”


Wen Xingchen leaned in a bit closer, almost entirely closing the gap between them, a faint smile lingering in his elongated eyes, “Then, I’ll make sure you have to let me know.”


Lu Jingning looked into his eyes and couldn’t help but laughingly lean against him, “Brother Wen, your taste for mischief is growing.”


A slight curve appeared at the corner of Wen Xingchen’s lips, “Don’t you like it?”


Lu Jingning extended his arms, gently wrapping them around from behind his neck, smiling brightly, “I do, very much. I like it so much that I won’t be able to not like it in this lifetime.”


Wen Xingchen’s gaze brushed over his lips, his voice growing softer, “What a coincidence, so do I.”



Not far away, Lulu was happily sharing prepared treats with the coal ball, “Here, this is canned food, this is dried fish, this is freeze-dried… Don’t rush, it’s all for you, I don’t eat these, no one’s going to snatch from you.”


The coal ball stared at the array of pet snacks appearing magically before it, its round eyes shining brighter.


Lulu looked on contentedly as the little black cat eagerly devoured the treats it offered, its tone becoming authoritative, “So, you need to understand, only by maintaining a good relationship with me will you have this many delicious… Hey, where are you going? Listen to me!”


But the coal ball, having eaten its fill, seemed to ignore everything and dashed away without a backward glance.


By the time Lulu realized and tried to chase after, it had already vanished.


The smiling expression on the display screen instantly turned into a flickering red fury.


This little rascal of a cat, turning its back after eating its fill!


No way! As an all-purpose household robot, how could it be stumped by such a trivial matter?


It refused to believe there was a cat it couldn’t tame! It was going to confront this little rascal head-on!

T/N: Hey there! There is plenty more where that came from, so stay tuned! And stay healthy! Straighten your posture, so some stretches and drink some water before continuing hehe~

Chapter 3 – Signing the Contract

       Zhuo Yue felt that he really couldn’t figure out Fang Mingyan. His attitude, his thoughts, his purpose, almost nothing could be discerned.

       It was as if he brought him out but did nothing. He leisurely strolled around the business district, randomly chose a teahouse by the roadside, and sat down to have tea. He had this spirit of being someone who was the biggest boss out there and that the world was in the palm of his hand. Zhuo Yue had to be patient and accompany him even though he was full of questions.

       The sky was blue and cloudless. The sun was hanging in the sky, and the soft sunlight shone warmly on people. Not far away was a small park in the centre of the city, where flocks of pigeons had landed on the ground, waiting for visitors to feed them. On the crowded pedestrian street, everyone had a different expression on their face.

       In the elegant teahouse, a man was delicately setting the tea utensils in front of him with his slender fingers. What he drank was Dahongpao1an expensive type of oolong tea, and the tea slowly filled the small cup from the purple clay teapot. The fragrance of the tea permeated the air, lingering around the tip of the nose. It seemed that the whole world had settled down with each breath.

       Zhuo Yue watched his movements quietly, with eyes clean and gentle, like a focused deer in the woods.

       “How long has it been since you’ve gone out for a stroll like this?” Fang Mingyan started talking.

       He thought for a moment and said, “It’s been a long time. I’ve been at home most of the time.”

       “Fortunately, you don’t come out often; otherwise, those young ladies would all have developed neck problems.” The man teased.

       With their good looks and the fact that they were sitting by a window along the street, they naturally attracted a lot of attention. A few girls probably recognised Zhuo Yue, stretched their necks and stood at a distance, whispering, and even took out their mobile phones to take pictures.

       Hearing this, Zhuo Yue curled his lips and smiled with a gentle light in his unstretched eyebrows.

       Fang Mingyan picked up the cup, put it to his lips, took a sip and said, “Guess what gossip about you will be on the Internet?”

       Zhuo Yue was stunned, then understood and said, “When I meet you, there will naturally be rumours of me changing agency.”

       “You’re not too stupid.” There seemed to be approval in the man’s eyes. “You’ve been silent for too long and need to return to the public eye in a special way. I’ll have someone hype up this news and launch some attacks on your former employer. If Fenglan responds, the attention on this news will be even greater; people love watching these kinds of drama. As for you, just remain silent throughout this process. From today on, Everything you say on social networks must be approved by the company.”

       “I understand.” Zhuo Yue looked down at the transparent glass in his hand. The Junshan Yinzhen2Junshan Yinzhen is a yellow tea from Junshan Island of the Hunan Province in China. It is considered to be China’s rarest tea and one of the Ten Chinese Famous Teas.’s leaves were floating as if dancing.

       The silver bell hanging on the door made an ethereal sound, and someone pushed the door open and walked straight towards the two of them.

       Fang Mingyan raised his wrist to look at his watch, smiled at the man and said, “You’re right on time.”

       “You know I’m never late.” The man who spoke was a man in his thirties, wearing gold-rimmed glasses and a coat dr4p3d over a well-ironed suit. The whole person had a calm and reserved appearance. Behind him was a young female secretary whose skirt fit the curves of her body, outlining her perfect figure.

       The man took two sets of documents from the secretary and handed them to Fang Mingyan, “These three documents are termination agreements; Fenglan has already signed them. Additionally, this one is a contract drafted according to your request.”

       “It’s so worry-free to have a legal advisor like you. Let me introduce Zhuo Yue, Party B in the contract.” After Fang Mingyan finished speaking, he turned to Zhuo Yue and said, “This is Lawyer Qin Mu, Huasheng’s chief legal advisor.”

       “Hello, I’m sorry to trouble you.” Zhuo Yue stood up and reached out his hand. Qin Mu politely took off the black leather glove on his right hand and shook hands with him, “Mr. Zhuo, as a lawyer, I have the obligation to remind you that many clauses in the contract are unfair to Party B.”

       Zhuo Yue was stunned when he heard this and pursed his lips, “I understand, thank you.” This lawyer made him feel a faint sense of oppression, which was somewhat similar to the feeling Fang Mingyan gave him as if he was completely dominant, powerful, strong and confident.

       The lawyer glanced at Fang Mingyan, who was smiling next to him, and there was a bit of understanding in his eyes. He said nothing more, took the tea that was handed to him, and took a sip.

       “Would you like to have dinner together at noon? I have an appointment with the Earl.” Boss Fang invited him enthusiastically.

       “You’re really making the best use of people.” Qin Mu raised his hand and looked at his watch. “I have a lawsuit to deal with this afternoon, so I need to go back and prepare. Once the contract is signed, notify me, and I’ll have my assistant come to pick it up.”

       “Okay.” Fang Mingyan responded, lazily leaning on the chair and waving his hands, “Good luck this afternoon.”

       “I humbly accept your words of blessing and hope they will come true.” Qin Mu didn’t stay long and left with his female secretary.

       The man moved the materials on the table in front of Zhu Ye, “Let’s take a look.”

       Zhuo Yue didn’t read the paper with black characters carefully. He turned to the last page, picked up the pen on the table used to write the opinion sheet, quickly signed his name in the Party B column, and then handed it back to the other side.

       “Aren’t you afraid that I’ll sell you out in the contract if you sign it so hastily?” Fang Mingyan looked at him jokingly.

       “I promised that I would do whatever you want.”

       Hearing this, a smile appeared on the man’s eyes, “I didn’t expect you to be… so good.” The deliberate drawl was a bit frivolous, which made Zhuo Yue’s cheeks heat up, and he turned to look out the window hastily.

       Lunch was served in a private club with a quiet environment.

       With green bricks and blue tiles, artificial hills and pond fish, and carved wooden windows, the courtyard was filled with classical Chinese beauty at every turn. Several birdcages hung on the patio, and the birds inside were chirping gracefully as if welcoming familiar guests. In the centre of a mahogany round table sits an old-fashioned copper hot pot, with red-starred charcoal burning underneath, boiling the bone broth with a bubbling sound, filling the air with a rich aroma of meat. Platefuls of all kinds of fresh ingredients were placed on the table, and Zhi Ye couldn’t help but gulp down his saliva.

       “Are you hungry?” Fang Mingyan asked.

       “No.” He felt a little embarrassed and got up to tease the budgerigar3The budgerigar, also known as the common parakeet, shell parakeet or budgie, is a small, long-tailed, seed-eating parrot next to the pillar. Sensing someone approaching behind him, he turned his face to see a golden-coloured snack being handed to his mouth. He pursed his lips and reached out to take it but was avoided by the other party.

       “This thing is deep-fried; after grabbing it, you’ll need to wash your hands again. Just eat it like this.” The man brought it to his lips again.

       Zhuo Yue was immediately embarrassed, took a step back and said, “I’m actually not very hungry…”

       Originally, he had no intention of teasing him and just wanted him to satisfy his belly first, but his expression aroused Fang Mingyan’s bad taste. The man deliberately approached, forcing him to lean his back against the pillar. Passing the small snack to his mouth, he lowered his voice and said, “You don’t want to eat like this. Do you want me to feed you the way I did last night?”

       Zhuo Yue’s face turned red when he heard him mention last night. He was in a stalemate for a while and had to open his mouth and bite down.

       At this moment, there was a slight cough at the door.

       Somebody was coming.

       Zhuo Yue was startled and almost choked. He finally swallowed it and stood behind Fang Mingyan with a red face. Boss Fang calmly wiped his hands with a wet wipe and said to the visitor, “You arrived so slowly that we are almost starving to death.”

       “Really? I’m sure you have many ways to spend your time.” The man in a long black coat put his hands in his pockets, a cashmere scarf casually dr4p3d around his neck, and his eyes were as deep as an abyss in his handsome face. Just a quick glance made Zhuo Yue nervous. The one next to him was slightly shorter, with clear eyes and a faint smile.

       Fang Mingyan said to Zhuo Yue, “Do you need me to introduce you? You should have seen this person before.”

       “Second Young Master.” Zhuo Yue greeted very respectfully. Chu Yu, the second son of the Golden Eagle Group, appeared to be a reputable chaebol but was rumoured to control the triads. Many people in the entertainment industry wanted to get close to him, but this one was very cold and difficult to get close to. Zhuo Yue had only seen him from a distance a few times when participating in charity activities. He heard a while ago that the Second Young Master came out as gay publicly and got married abroad with a male partner, so the person around him should be… Zhuo Yue noticed that the two of them were wearing the same style of ring on their ring fingers.

       “This is the new chairman of Baihe Group, Xu Ye, the Second Young Master’s wife.” Fang Mingyan continued to introduce.

       “…What wife! You really…” The shorter, handsome man glared at him and then looked at the Second Young Master Chu next to him somewhat aggrievedly.

       There was a gentle smile in Chu Yu’s eyes, and he corrected, “My spouse.”

       “Okay, Second Young Master’s spouse.” Fang Mingyan corrected helplessly, “This is Zhuo Yue, the artist I just signed.”

       “I’ve seen your movie.” Xu Ye thought for a while and said, “It seems to be a historical movie with a complicated name. What is it called?”

       “Is it ‘The Flowers Bloom on the Road for the Lord’s Care’?” Zhuo Yue asked.

       “Yes. It happened to be on TV when I was sick last time, so I watched a few episodes. You acted really well, but the plot was too melodramatic. I suggest you not collaborate with that screenwriter named Mo Qingcheng next time; every script that person writes turns out to be trash4LMAOOOOOO.”

       Zhuo Yue laughed.

       Under the dim sunlight, these two people stood together. The two men were like two pieces of jade; one was smooth and warm, and the other was clear and transparent.

       The other two men exchanged glances. Fang Mingyan smirked, unreservedly took a seat, and picked up a piece of beef, putting it into the copper pot. He said, “Alright, let’s eat and talk. The pot is almost drying up.”

       The three of them sat down, with Xu Ye next to Zhu Ye. He was interested in the process of TV drama production, so the two of them chatted while they ate.

       Chu Yu glanced at Zhu Ye and asked Fang Mingyan, “Your people?”

       “My artist,” he added.

       “So there must be another reason why you invited me to dinner today.” Chu Yu peeled off the shells of the boiled shrimp and put them in Xu Ye’s bowl. The other party happened to give him fish balls, and the two looked at each other and smiled.

       “I heard Golden Eagle is investing in a movie, and Xie Anqing is currently selecting the cast.” Fang Mingyan swung the cabbage leaves in the hot pot and said bluntly, “Give him a chance to audition.”

       “Chu Xuan is in charge of everything in the cultural industry, and I rarely interfere. But it’s rare for you to speak to me. I’ll do you a favour this time.” Second Young Master Chu pressed the phone and asked, “His name consists of which two characters?”

       “Zhuo means ‘outstanding’, and Yue means ‘pleasing’.”

       Soon, the message came back.

       “Let him go to the Changting studio for an audition tomorrow afternoon. The main roles have basically been decided, except for one supporting male role left.” Chu Yu looked up at Fang Mingyan with a hint of playfulness in his eyes and added, “It’s a gay.”

       Fang Mingyan was stunned for a moment, then looked at Zhuo Yue, who was lowering his head to eat food, and slowly showed a smile, “It would be nice to let him expand his acting career.” After a moment, he added, “I almost forgot, there’s one more thing. I need you to help me give a heads up.”

       “You invite me to a meal and make a bunch of requests.” The Second Young Master Chu glanced at him.

       “Mainly, this matter is in your territory, and it’s tricky for me to handle.” Fang Mingyan looked innocent. “This kid is involved in some affairs on your Guangyu Street.”

       Chu Yu frowned, “How much?”

       “Including interest, it’s over three million.”

       “Leave this matter to Tang Can, and I’ll contact you when the result comes.”

       “Okay.” Fang Mingyan smiled slyly as he placed a cooked precious crab leg into Chu Yu’s bowl. He said, “Eat without worries; everything’s fine now.”

I didn’t notice I kept writing him as Zhuo Ye coz I kept recalling Xu Ye’s name until I realised it was supposed to be Zhuo Yue instead. (ノД`)

Chapter 94 – I considered it up, too

Chapter 94 – I considered it up, too


Jian Luo waited with a hint of nervousness for Lu Shifeng’s response.


The Marshal glanced at him, giving a cold, bone-chilling smirk as he asked, “Really?”






Jian Luo shrank back, stammering, “I, I suddenly don’t really know.”


He tried to move away, but he was already on the bed, with nowhere to escape. In the end, he could only sit on the edge of the bed, feeling small, helpless, and vulnerable.


Lu Shifeng pulled him back, preventing him from falling off the bed. His demeanor was dominant, a departure from his usual laziness. At this moment, he seemed full of aggression, especially with those blood-red eyes, giving the impression that he was a fearsome predator and Jian Luo was the vulnerable prey.


Jian Luo nervously opened his eyes.


Lu Shifeng’s voice was low and magnetic, “Be good and don’t cry, okay?”


Jian Luo stammered, “I won’t run away.”


Lu Shifeng’s lips curved into a faint smile, “Good.”


After delivering his threat, the Marshal got up and left the room.


As he left, the oppressive atmosphere in the room diminished, and Jian Luo finally relaxed. It wasn’t because he was pleased but because this encounter reminded him of the immense gap between them. For Lu Shifeng, he seemed too insignificant, while for himself, Lu Shifeng was undeniably too powerful.


Jian Luo sighed in place, trying to forget the dream-like scenario he had been trapped in. The former Marshal had mentioned that dreams could sometimes be inaccurate; perhaps he was just overly worried.



“Luo Luo, let’s go shopping!”


Secretary Jin, came over after breakfast.


Jian Luo was excited, “Can we?”


Lu Shifeng, who was sitting at the table, remained motionless and gave Jian Luo a glance. “Take care of yourself.”


Jian Luo understood, “You’re not coming?”


Secretary Jin said, “The Marshal won’t be joining us. He has some business to attend to, but once he’s done, he should have some time.”


Lu Shifeng, sitting nearby, appeared nonchalant, waiting for Jian Luo to engage him.


However, Jian Luo was straightforward, “It’s okay; he’s busy. Just the two of us going for a walk is fine!”




The atmosphere suddenly grew colder.


Secretary Jin felt a chill run down her spine and forced a smile, “How could it be? The Marshal will have time to accompany you and the baby once he’s done.”


Jian Luo didn’t catch on, “I don’t need someone to accompany me.”


Secretary Jin’s smile almost disappeared.


Of course, Lu Shifeng’s smile vanished even earlier. Jian Luo hadn’t realized his mistake yet, but the Marshal was giving him a piercing stare.


Jian Luo’s heart tightened, “W-What’s wrong?”


Where could he find someone as considerate as him?


Lu Shifeng smiled thinly, “Okay.”


Thinking that he was just in a bad mood, Jian Luo returned a bright smile and left without even eating. Secretary Jin awkwardly accompanied him, and she didn’t dare to look back at Lu Shifeng’s expression, letting everything blow away with the wind.



The commercial district.

Industrial Star excelled in creating a variety of craftsmanship and inventions. They had astonishing talent and creativity in this field, making most shops on both sides of the streets selling these ingenious products.


Though there were no specific offerings, if one focused and searched diligently, occasionally, they could find high-quality items at affordable prices.


Jian Luo stood in front of a stall, looking at a yellow box, “What’s this?”


The vendor answered, “This is a lie detector.”


A real-life lie detector!


Jian Luo was genuinely excited, “Is this lie detector able to determine if someone is lying?”


The vendor, a scruffy young man with long hair that nearly covered his eyes, replied without making eye contact, “It can detect about 90% of questions, and the accuracy depends on the person’s mental strength.”


Wide-eyed and curious, Jian Luo looked at the yellow device. He inquired, “Can I try it?”


The vendor didn’t refuse, “Sure.”


So Jian Luo got a chance to use it.


Using the lie detector was straightforward. He inserted his hand, asked a question, and provided an answer. If the answer was a lie, the device would light up.


Jin, the secretary, asked, “Luo Luo, why are you interested in this?”


As Jian Luo inserted his hand into the lie detector, he replied, “It’s fun.”


One of the advantages of this lie detector was that you could mentally ask the questions, to avoid any potentially embarrassing results. To prevent awkward outcomes, Jian Luo chose to think the questions silently.


He took a deep breath and began to think the question:


“I am a person from the 21st century on Earth.”


After thinking the question, he began to wait. In a short time, the machine reacted, and the blue light lit up.


Secretary Jin said, “That’s correct.”

A hint of joy appeared in Jian Luo’s eyes, and he decided to change to another question, “I don’t like Lu Shifeng.”


The machine hesitated for a moment and then lit up with a red light.


Secretary Jin smiled and said, “That’s incorrect.”




Jian Luo looked at the machine in silence, deciding to ask a question that would yield a clear judgment, “I am currently a livestreamer.”


The machine lit up with a blue light.


“Lu Shifeng is a pig.”


The machine showed a red light.


Jian Luo enjoyed himself and chuckled.


Finally, when he grew tired of playing, the vendor asked, “How much do you want to pay?”


The vendor raised a finger, “10,000 star coins.”




It was quite expensive. Jian Luo was aware that he used to earn only 3,000 star coins a month in his previous job.


As expected, Secretary Jin said, “This is above market price. Many people are buying lie detectors, so if you’re looking for someone to overcharge, you’ve picked the wrong person.”


The vendor replied, “My lie detector is different from the others.”


Bending down in curiosity, Jian Luo asked, “What makes it different?”


“It’s only sold to those with fate,” the vendor lifted his emo-style hair to reveal his face, “and you two are the chosen ones.”




Jian Luo said, “5,000.”


The vendor replied, “I can’t even cover my costs with that, I can’t sell it.”


“5,000 is my final offer; I tested several questions, and it didn’t work well,” Jian Luo lied with wide eyes. “If you want to sell, sell it. If not, we’ll leave.”


The vendor felt frustrated, “It can’t be wrong.”


Jian Luo grabbed Secretary Jin’s hand, making a show of leaving, “I said 5,000; I’ll take it for 5,000. A fair price.”


Although he said he would leave, he rambled for a while and didn’t actually go. He had enjoyed the act, holding Secretary Jin’s hand.


After a brief hesitation, the vendor finally relented, “Fine.”




In the end, Jian Luo managed to obtain the lie detector as he wished, and he also won the admiring gaze of Secretary Jin, “Luo Luo, you’re amazing.”


Jian Luo sighed, “It’s nothing, just a little haggling.”


Secretary Jin was shocked, “You can haggle too?”




Jian Luo looked at her curiously, “Don’t you haggle when shopping?”


SecretaryJin didn’t answer, but Jian Luo could read the answer in her eyes. These capitalist ways were truly vile.


The rest of their shopping was mainly about getting to know the local environment. After a while, Jian Luo noticed something concerning, “Why is there no food for sale here?”


Jin messaged back, “Industrial Star used to be ruled by robots, and animals were enslaved. Later, there was a reformation, with robots stepping down, giving the people a chance to rule. However, during the earlier years, due to being enslaved by robots for a long time, their food and drink were all nutrient fluids. They didn’t have much interest in other things.”


Jian Luo nodded, “I see.”


With this explanation, Industrial Star seemed more desolate than he had thought.


The two of them got a rough idea of the situation and returned home. When Jian Luo returned, it was still early, and he hadn’t had a good meal since yesterday. His stomach was growling, especially since his morning sickness had subsided. He decided to cook a meal for himself.


Secretary Jin, the secretary, offered, “I’ll help.”


Jian Luo took a fresh fish out of the fridge and said, “Let’s make boiled fish.”


Jin took the fish and said, “I’ll prepare the fish.”


So, Jian Luo started preparing the other ingredients for the fish. He enjoyed the process of cooking, the gradual creation of delicious flavors, and he got lost in it. He decided to make a live stream of it.


He chose to make spicy boiled fish and, before starting the live stream, he checked the back-end data. So far, he had prepared nearly 20 different dishes, including snacks like fries and chips, which would start charging once the taste limit was exceeded.


Up to this point, he had cashed out only a few times.


The total earnings in the back-end were impressive, amounting to 780,000 star coins. Some dishes were particularly popular, with snacks like fries taking the lead at 190,000 star coins.


Jian Luo said, “I need to figure out a way to make more money.”


And it appeared that dealing with the factory issue was becoming increasingly urgent. Earth was in a state of disrepair, and everything required funds. Even with 780,000 star coins, it was challenging to afford a protective shield.


Secretary Jin asked, “Luo Luo, what are you looking at?”


Jian Luo snapped back to reality and said, “It’s nothing.”


He decided to take it step by step for now. There wasn’t much use worrying about it at the moment.




The small spherical live broadcasting device was officially activated. Since the last time he crashed the Jinjiang Live Streaming Network, Jian Luo had become a bit more careful. Before starting the live stream, he informed Jiang Jiang, “I’m going live.”


Upon hearing this dreadful news, Jiang Jiang promptly called the programmers to prepare.


The audience in the live stream room began to increase.


“The streamer is live!”


“Why did the live stream start all of a sudden? I was still in Da Yu’s live stream.”


“Clashing schedules.”


“Oh my, there are fewer people today. Looks like most of them are at Da Yu’s stream.”


Jian Luo didn’t know who Da Yu was, but he was curious, “Who’s Da Yu?”


The audience in the live stream room replied, “A new food streamer. He makes some strange flavors.”


“Similar to you.”




Wasn’t that undermining my character?


Jian Luo asked with some difficulty, “What kind of strange flavors are we talking about?”


The audience replied:


“Charcoal-grilled stones.”


“Stir-fried tree leaves.”


“Steamed leather belts.”




Jian Luo fell silent for a while and said, “That’s… interesting.”


Because so many people mentioned it, Jian Luo specifically checked the profile of this guy. He found that he was indeed popular, ranking first on the popularity list with 5.2 million viewers, leaving the second place (which was him) behind by around 2 million viewers.


Fortunately, he wasn’t too concerned about these statistics, and he wasn’t eager to compete with others. So, he just checked and left it at that.


Jian Luo refocused, a laid-back streamer, and began his broadcast, “Let’s make boiled pork, a homey dish. Don’t miss it!”


Jin handed the fish to him, and Jian Luo started explaining to the camera how to remove the fishy smell. As his live stream began, more and more new viewers entered. This time slot used to belong to Da Yu, but with Jian Luo’s broadcast, more and more viewers began to split between them.


In Da Yu’s live stream room, there were some discordant voices:


“Luo Luo from next door started his live stream.”


“Friends, Luo Luo is live!”


“Oh, he finally started his stream?”


Clearly, Da Yu’s popularity began to decline visibly, which caught the attention of the room moderators and Da Yu himself. Since they joined Jinjiang, they had been the top dog in terms of popularity. They were widely praised, and no other streamer could surpass them. While they knew of Jian Luo’s existence, he rarely streamed, and due to the unpredictable timing of his streams, the two channels had never clashed before. So, everything was peaceful.


However, it happened by chance this time that they went live at the same time.


Da Yu checked the barrage and said, “Alright, everyone, please stop spamming. Let’s focus on my content.”


“Room mods, check this.”


“Organize the content.”


Most comments mentioning Jian Luo were either deleted or the users were banned. However, even after banning a portion, others still came up. This, to a large extent, caused dissatisfaction among Da Yu’s fans.


“Why are there so many annoying people?”


“Just let him stream; why spam everywhere?”


“I can’t see Da Yu’s content now. It’s so annoying.”


Although Jian Luo didn’t instruct such behavior, it contributed to the invisible tension in the air.


Soon, some of Da Yu’s fans started fighting back:


“I downloaded Jinjiang Streaming just for him. Why can’t I say that?”


“Some people are spamming Da Yu in Jian Luo’s stream. Why isn’t Jian Luo moderating his fans?”


“Freedom of speech. I’ll say what I want.”


“Why are you guys so anxious? Jian Luo has only streamed a few times, and he clashed with us just once. Is it necessary to be so impatient?”


Fans argued vigorously, sapping the viewership from both live streams. In the past six months, although Jinjiang wasn’t a top-tier streaming platform, it had achieved some success in the industry.


The overall ranking displayed the popularity of various live streams on different platforms, and Jinjiang had been able to enter the top five of the top ten rooms. Today, the rapid growth in popularity in both streams was quite astonishing, and their combined viewership was leaving everyone else behind.


“What’s going on with these two live streams?”


“Why are they growing so quickly?”


“Wow, I heard they’re feuding.”


On the other hand, Da Yu’s staff quietly mentioned the popularity of the live stream in their room. They were part of a team, so they knew how to maximize their benefits. Finally clashing with Jian Luo after so much time, they decided to seize this opportunity for a boost in viewership.


A room mod said to Da Yu, “Since they like discussing this, you can mention Jian Luo a bit more. It’ll help keep the conversation lively.”


Da Yu replied, “I don’t like creating a fuss.”


The mod smiled, “Jian Luo also became famous through hype. Don’t be concerned; after all, money and fame are more important. You both can win.”




On the other side, Jian Luo was focused on cooking.


The fish on the cutting board was ready, and the seasonings were prepared. He faced the camera and said, “Remember, we have to remove the fishy smell.”


The viewers’ attention was still mostly on Da Yu’s live stream:


“Jian Luo is crossing the line.”


“He’s talking nonsense.”


“Who would intentionally clash with him to steal viewers? Ridiculous.”




Did anything happen while he was preparing the fish?


Jian Luo looked baffled, but he continued to cook the fish. In a calm and gentle tone, he said, “Alright, please don’t mind those comments. I didn’t choose this time to go live with any intention. Everyone doesn’t need to argue. If you prefer to watch someone else, go ahead. It’s all your choice. I don’t mind if you think someone else is better and watch them. There’s no need to argue, right?”


Even though he was working hard, the war still raged on. Jian Luo couldn’t help but feel a bit frustrated. He rubbed his temples and adjusted his settings while saying in a gentle tone, “If it continues like this, I’ll have to turn off the live chat.”


Initially, he had been wearing a mask while cooking to avoid the fishy smell. However, while massaging his temples, he inadvertently loosened the mask, allowing the fishy odor to seep through the gaps and assault his nose.


Jian Luo froze in his tracks, struggling to suppress the nausea building in his stomach, but he couldn’t hold back any longer, “Ugh…”


He rushed to the sink and began retching, his movements so rapid and intense that it left viewers in shock.


What truly shocked them was the intensity of their own sensations. Because Jian Luo’s stream was broadcasting in real-time, viewers could share in his experiences. The momentary nausea and revulsion felt by everyone watching were a revelation:


“My goodness, that sensation was so vivid.”


“I actually felt like I was going to throw up just now.”


“I’ve never experienced this before.”


“Is this what morning sickness feels like?”


A large group of viewers, who were suddenly experiencing the urge to vomit, flooded the chat with their reactions. The stream’s popularity soared to new heights, and all the prior arguments were quickly forgotten.


As people marveled at this unexpected twist of fate, Jian Luo straightened up, leaned against the sink, and let out a light chuckle. Initially, everything seemed normal, but suddenly…


Jian Luo placed his hand on his stomach and then chuckled softly.


At the same time, the anxious viewers who were experiencing these sensations were equally astonished. They almost simultaneously felt the subtle sensations, as if tiny fish were swimming by, or bubbles were gliding across their fingertips. It was as though the little one had given them a gentle greeting.


In an instant, they were overwhelmed by a sense of happiness. For those whose brains didn’t naturally produce happiness factors, the feeling of joy flooded their minds at the same time.


“Ah, the little one is saying hello to me!”


“It’s so adorable!”


“Rounded up, I’m pregnant too, sob!”


“Eh?! Who’s still arguing? I’m immersed in this moment.”

Chapter 10 – Peeled Face

       Initially, the news about the murder case was not reported by the local news media but rather began circulating through vague posts on the internet. Some people claimed that a murder had occurred near their neighbourhood, and the scene seemed quite gruesome. However, the details of the exact nature of the brutality were unclear, as the individuals sharing the information were unable to provide clear specifics.

       One after another, there were some rumours and news circulating. Among the most terrifying rumours was the claim that the victims were all young women, and their faces were completely peeled off.

       When Song Jun saw this post, he couldn’t help but think of some horrifying pictures.

       At that moment, he suddenly heard a sound coming from the window, startling him. When he turned around, he saw that it was the black cat jumping in.

       The little black cat raised its tail and walked back and forth on the window sill twice. It wasn’t until Song Jun took out a small bowl and gave it half a bowl of cat food that it jumped down from the window. With an elegant stride, it walked towards the direction of the small bowl.

       Song Jun squatted next to it, propped up his head and watched it eat.

       After the little black cat finished eating, the cat stuck out its pink tongue to lick its mouth and then plopped down.

       Song Jun then sat down next to it and touched its head with his hand.

       The little black cat seemed to feel comfortable under his touch and slowly lay down on its side, its tail wagging every now and then.

       Song Jun scratched his belly, suddenly stood up, ran over to open the door, and then knocked on Xia Hongshen’s door opposite.

       Xia Hongshen opened the door from the inside and saw Song Jun saying to him with a smile on his face, “Senior Brother, there is a kitten here that always likes to run towards my room. Do you know where it comes from?”

       Xia Hongshen glanced into his room.

       Song Jun also turned around, only to find that the little black cat was gone.

       Xia Hongshen said, “A wild cat from the neighbourhood.”

       Song Jun said, “Hmm”, thinking that he had made a fuss about knocking on Xia Hongshen’s door for this matter.

       Unexpectedly, Xia Hongshen said to him, “Would you like to eat? I bought some snacks.”

       Song Jun was startled, and before he could think about it carefully, he blurted out, “Sure.”

       Xia Hongshen asked Song Jun to sit in his room and took a bag of dried fish from the table to him. Song Jun looked at the bag of dried fish and couldn’t help but glance at Xia Hongshen again. It was strange that Senior Brother Xia would like to eat these things. It was so different from his overall character.

       Xia Hongshen sat down at the table and asked him, “Is it delicious?”

       Song Jun said quickly, “It’s delicious.”

       Xia Hongshen nodded, “Then eat more.”

       In the end, Song Jun sat down and ate a whole bag of dried fish at Xia Hongshen’s place. After returning home, he burped all night and always felt a fishy smell.

       The next day, Song Jun went to the lab in the afternoon. When he went to the bottom of the Forensic Medicine building, he found several police cars parked outside and a lot of people surrounding him downstairs.

       He hesitated in his steps, not knowing what happened.

       Actually, Song Jun would understand that this situation was quite common after staying in school for a long time. The campus’ Forensic Medicine Identification Centre would conduct external assessments. Often, in major cases where the police encountered challenges or when the deceased’s family had objections and disagreed with the forensic assessments conducted by law enforcement, the cases would be sent to the campus’ identification centre for examination.

       Just like when he waited until school officially started in September, he would go to the lab of the identification centre to help.

       Song Jun slowed down, and when he entered the gate, he noticed a young man squatting on the ground and playing games on his mobile phone.

       The young man had a delicate baby face, biting a lollipop in his mouth, and was concentrating on playing games on his mobile phone.

       When Song Jun passed by him, someone suddenly kicked the young man on the butt. The young man grabbed his cell phone, lost his balance and rushed forward just in time to hug Song Jun’s thigh to stabilise himself.

       Song Jun’s pants were almost pulled off. He had a mixed feeling of annoyance and amusement as he pulled up his trousers.

       The young man stood up, raised a hand and said to Song Jun, “Sorry, sorry.”

       Song Jun forced a smile.

       At this time, the middle-aged man who had just kicked the young man said, “Long Xing, stop playing around and go in and take a look.”

       The young man named Long Xing was a young detective. When he heard this, he said, “Oh, okay.” Then he put away his cell phone and walked inside.

       Song Jun also followed him into the building. When he saw Long Xing walking around in the direction of the autopsy room, he was curious and wanted to follow him to have a look.

       Before he entered the autopsy room, Song Jun saw Xia Hongshen, who was putting on gloves. His attention was drawn, and he took a few steps towards Xia Hongshen before suddenly noticing a corpse on the autopsy table next to him.

       It was the body of a young woman, still wearing a T-shirt and shorts. The body was intact, but the entire face had been completely peeled off from the hairline down, leaving only a bloody mess.

       Song Jun was startled and almost screamed and quickly reached out to cover his mouth.

       There were many people in the autopsy room, but no one noticed him. Only Xia Hongshen walked towards him.

       “Is something wrong?” Xia Hongshen asked.

       Song Jun shook his head, not daring to look in that direction anymore, but out of the corner of his eye, he noticed that the young detective named Long Xing was standing next to the autopsy table and looking around. There was a lollipop in his mouth. It seems that he hadn’t finished eating yet.

       Xia Hongshen could see that he was nervous and asked, “Afraid?”

       Song Jun was embarrassed to admit it. He neither shook his head nor nodded.

       Xia Hongshen put his hand on top of his head and said, “Get out first if you’re afraid.”

       Song Jun was stunned for a moment and said, “Then I’m leaving.” After saying that, he immediately turned around and left. He was afraid that he would turn red if he didn’t turn around and leave.

       As he walked into the elevator, Song Jun was still thinking about Xia Hongshen’s actions just now. He felt that Xia Hongshen was a bit too close, and it didn’t look like they had just known each other for less than a month, but he didn’t hate it…

       After staying in the lab all afternoon, when Song Jun left, it seemed that the autopsy on the first floor was not over yet.

       He suddenly remembered the news he had seen online, saying that many young women had been murdered, but he didn’t know if this was that case.

       This time, Song Jun did not boldly look at it again, and walked towards the outside of the building straightaway.

       When he left, the young policeman, Long Xing, was still squatting next to the gate playing games. Two policemen were standing not far away, chatting. Song Jun heard one person say, “What kind of psycho do you think can do this?”

       The other person said, “It’s almost the Hungry Ghost Festival. Could it be the work of ghosts?”

       Song Jun slowed down, took out his mobile phone from his pocket, and checked that it was almost half the seventh month of the lunar calendar.

       Song Jun’s birthday was in the middle of the seventh lunar month. Actually, this was not the exact date. To be precise, he was an orphan. His grandmother burned money paper on the roadside for the Hungry Ghost Festivals and picked him up when she went back. So that day became his birthday.

       Song Jun never knew who his parents were, and it was quite perplexing for him. He was obviously a healthy boy, so it seemed strange that his parents would abandon him.

       The grandmother who adopted him actually had a son and a daughter. She was no longer young at that time, but she still worked hard to raise him. She travelled to many places to ensure he could study, going through the process of adopting him and getting him registered. His grandmother was the only family Song Jun had in this world.

       Now that the Hungry Ghost Festival was coming, Song Jun planned to go back to visit his grandma and celebrate his birthday.

       Grandma’s family lives on the outskirts of a small county town. Although she had a son and a daughter, they were not filial. Since Song Jun started living on campus during his university years, his grandmother had been living alone.

       Song Jun left school in the afternoon, and now he took the bus there just in time for dinner.

       When he arrived, the sun was almost setting, but it was not dark yet. Grandma lived in the suburbs of the county town, and behind her house was a large piece of farmland.

       When she suddenly saw Song Jun, Grandma was naturally very happy. She made him a large table of dishes and asked him how he was doing at school.

       Song Jun said that he was doing well now because he had a scholarship and did not have to spend money on tuition fees. He also had living expenses every month, so he did not spend too much money.

       He had been working part-time during the previous summer vacation, and he planned to continue working when he was familiar with the environment in his current school and when the experiments didn’t require so much time.

       While eating, Song Jun said to his grandma, “When I make enough money, I will buy a house in the city and bring you over.”

       Grandma reached out and touched his head and said, “Xiao Jun is a good boy.”

       After a while, Grandma asked him, “Does Xiao Jun have a girlfriend?”

       Song Jun was embarrassed when asked, “Grandma, why do you ask this?”

       Grandma said, “We are about the same age now. When your grandfather was your age, we already had a son.”

       Song Jun said to Grandma, “I know.”

       Grandma smiled and reached out to touch his head again.

       After dinner, Song Jun helped his grandma wash the dishes. Grandma stood beside him and said to him, “Xiao Jun, your grandpa and his family used to be landlords. During the Cultural Revolution, your grandpa was denounced publicly.”

       Song Jun didn’t know how many times he had heard his grandma say these words. He knew that she was old and had a bad memory, so he just listened to her quietly and didn’t interrupt her.

       He thought his grandmother was just reminiscing about the grandpa, but he didn’t expect that this time Grandma would say, “His family has a family heirloom, which was buried under the bed in my room. At that time, the Red Guards1The Red Guards were a mass, student-led, paramilitary social movement mobilized by Chairman Mao Zedong in 1966 until their abolishment in 1968, during the first phase of the Cultural Revolution, which he had instituted. came to search for things in the house, but they never found it.”

       Song Jun listened to her words and asked smoothly, “What is it?”

       Grandma said, “You will know later when you dig it up and take a look.”

       Song Jun nodded, “I will dig it out when I have the chance.”

       After washing the dishes, Song Jun watched TV with his grandma for a while. Because his grandma was used to going to bed early, he went to bed early too.

       His room was the one he used to have. Grandma had always kept it very clean for him. Perhaps due to it being a bungalow, even in the summer, it remained cool in the evenings, and there was no need for a fan.

       Grandma brought him a big cattail fan and told him to fan himself when it was hot.

       Song Jun said, “I know, grandma, go to bed early.”

       Grandma closed the door for him when he went out.

       Song Jun lay on the bed, grabbed a fan and fanned himself for a while. He soon felt sleepy, turned over and fell asleep. He woke up suddenly in the middle of the night. Song Jun felt like he wanted to relieve himself. He climbed down from the bed, reached out, pushed open the door and walked out.

       When he walked to the living room, Song Jun stopped. He saw a large black-and-white photo of his grandma on the square table in the living room. In front of the photo, there was an incense burner with the remnants of burned incense candles. It was unmistakably a memorial photo!

Hungry Ghost Festival is usually in the middle of the seventh month or on the 15th day of the 7th month in the Lunar Calendar. Lunar Calendar days are different than the Gregorian ones, so the 7th month may not mean July, and it depends on when the Lunar Year start.
People usually burn paper money as a way to ‘send’ some money to their loved ones who have already died
Also, it’s believed that on that day ghosts will come back to our world and that’s why we paid our respect by burning off the money paper
