Chapter 93 – Eloping with a lover

Chapter 93 – Eloping with a lover


Jian Luo had never expected to be questioned at the school.


This put him in a dilemma because, in the first place, this body was, to put it bluntly, quite subpar. If one were to describe it based on its history, it could really be summed up in just two words: “not tall.”


Is his true mentor now not Zhan Wentai?


Or can it not be considered a school?


Jian Luo fell into deep thought and, in the end, chose to be honest, “At the Starry Sea Academy.”


As soon as he said that, the entire hall quieted down considerably. You see, most people had heard of Starry Sea Academy, and it was known to be a lower-tier institution, not quite esteemed.


As expected.


Someone sneered, “Is it this academy? I’ve never heard that they teach medicine there.”


Others chimed in:


“Assistant Commander[/mfn]They started calling Jian Luo this.[/mfn], you should rest easy.”


“Being a human, he’s certainly trying his best.”


“Assistant Commander, it’s not easy to become an invaluable aide to the Marshal.”


Almost everyone indulged in various forms of sarcasm. Unfortunately, in the vast universe, might makes right, and weaker races receive little respect.


The hushed murmurs continued, but suddenly, they all fell silent. The reason was simple: Lu Shifeng, who had been sitting silently nearby, lifted his head. He raised his eyelids, and his blood-red, expressionless eyes swept over the faces of the people, like icy blades grazing their bodies, causing their hair to stand on end.


Lu Shifeng’s lips curled, and he asked the one who had spoken first, “Go on, why did you stop talking?”


The person choked.


“Or should we continue the conversation?” Lu Shifeng toyed with a wine cup in his hand. “Sitting alone there is quite dull, isn’t it?”




The minister wiped the sweat from his forehead and stammered, “You’re joking, Your Excellency.”


Lu Shifeng was about to speak when Jian Luo discreetly tugged at the big man’s sleeve, signaling him to let it go. Jian Luo didn’t mind.


He was used to it.


And if the patient didn’t accept treatment, it wasn’t his problem.


The queen above asked, “Assistant Commander, did you become skilled on your own?”


Jian Luo didn’t expect the queen to ask that. He nodded, “A little.”


“Indeed,” the queen smiled gently. “Assistant Commander seems quite extraordinary. I’m sure there must be something special about him to become the right hand of the Marshal.”


Lu Shifeng remained expressionless, but his imposing aura had diminished somewhat.


The leader also chimed in, “Assistant Commander is indeed extraordinary, and he even diagnosed Your Excellency’s illness at a glance. I wonder which medical text he studied, and we should acquire it for further study.”


Jian Luo didn’t take credit and responded, “I’d be willing to provide reference materials, but these are from the Phoenix Pavilion’s collection. Without the High Priest’s permission, I dare not lend them without authorization.”


With that statement, the surroundings fell silent once more.


People exchanged puzzled glances, and some couldn’t believe their ears. Phoenix Pavilion? Was this the same Phoenix Pavilion they’d imagined?


“Is it for real?”


“They say the High Priest only lends it to close relatives.”


But in just a few moments, everyone’s gaze toward Jian Luo had changed dramatically. The earlier disdain had vanished, replaced by a mixture of respect and awe. Many had also realized that if he were just an ordinary human, how could he have become Lu Shifeng’s assistant and acquired access to the Phoenix Pavilion’s collection?


Was he truly an ordinary human?


No, he was practically a deity!


Clearly, the leader shared this sentiment as well. He said, “It’s actually from the Phoenix Pavilion’s collection. We were ignorant. Since Assistant Commander has brought medicine, let’s try it on Your Excellency.”


The queen also expressed her gratitude, “Thank you, Assistant Commander.”


Jian Luo hadn’t expected that just the mention of Zhan Wentai’s title would lead to such a change in attitude. He chuckled, “Very well.”


With the conversation concluded, Jian Luo began to contemplate how to prepare the medicine correctly. He had encountered this page in the medical texts, and it required quite a variety of medicinal herbs.


However, this time on Little Blue Star, he had collected quite a few herbs. He planned to consult an old Chinese doctor and make several prescriptions, which should be no problem.


Lu Shifeng picked up a fruit and placed it in front of Jian Luo.


Jian Luo snapped out of his thoughts, curious as he asked, “What’s this?”


“It’s a Shattered Fruit,” Lu Shifeng explained succinctly. “A local specialty here. Eating it allows you to dream.”


“Dream?” Jian Luo was puzzled. “But I usually dream even without eating anything.”


Lu Shifeng seemed to anticipate his question and said, “It can predict future dreams. The timeline is uncertain, based on individual experiences.”


What kind of miraculous fruit was this?


This was the first time Jian Luo had encountered such a fruit up close, and he was too excited to eat it immediately. If he had a phone, he might have taken a picture to share on his social media.


The fruit’s appearance was also far from ideal. It was entirely red and covered in prickles, making it appear unappetizing. Just by looking at it, no one could imagine its extraordinary properties.


Jian Luo, still excited, said, “Let’s try one.”


Lu Shifeng, in a nonchalant tone, warned, “The taste of this fruit is unique. If you can’t handle it, don’t force yourself.”


“It’s okay, how unique could it be… Ugh!”


Jian Luo’s stomach suddenly revolted as he took a bite of the fruit. The taste was indescribable, bitter with a hint of something unpleasant, something he wouldn’t have eaten even if you paid him.


In the nick of time, Jian Luo had a sudden realization. He quickly wrapped his arms around Lu Shifeng’s arm, leaning close to him with his head resting on Lu Shifeng’s shoulder. Taking this opportunity, he took a few deep breaths, absorbing the pheromones emanating from Lu Shifeng’s body, which he had found to have a powerful calming effect. One breath could cure a hundred ailments.


As expected, in just a few breaths, his stomach’s strong reaction had improved considerably.


Jian Luo made an effort to swallow and finally managed to get the fruit down. He said excitedly, “I wonder what kind of dreams I’ll have. I’m so excited; I might not be able to sleep.”


Lu Shifeng said, “Don’t get too excited.”


Curious, Jian Luo asked, “Why not?”


“Because it’s not a guarantee that you’ll dream every time,” Lu Shifeng said nonchalantly. “So, keep a calm mind.”




This guy.


Nevertheless, Jian Luo was curious about this so-called precognition ability. It was quite intriguing to talk about, and even though he couldn’t choose which future he would see, it was still exciting, knowing it might come true eventually.


However, their departure from the council chamber marked the beginning of a tour.


The leader said, “This time, our upgraded defense shield has undergone significant improvements. It operates based on self-pressure sensitivity and a specific magnetic field intensity. Its misactivation rate has been tested over millions of times and functions normally in different magnetic fields and pressure conditions in major star systems.”


A defense shield!?


Suddenly, Jian Luo became interested.


The entire glass screen displayed the latest defense shield in action. From the outside, it looked the same as the inside, with a scarecrow placed in the middle. A multitude of fierce creatures with small sharp teeth surrounded it and swarmed toward it. However, at a certain distance from the scarecrow, the defense shield automatically activated, repelling all the creatures.


The presenter explained, “Our latest defense shield uses the M78 sensing screen. It’s incredibly flexible and can counteract the force of an attack, returning up to 45% of the force exerted by attacking beasts.”


Leaning against the wall, Lu Shifeng spoke slowly, “What if it’s mistakenly triggered by our own soldiers or accidental contact?”


The presenter had already prepared an answer, “Of course, we’ve anticipated this issue. The entire defense shield uses an entry and exit pattern. It quickly and accurately captures the information pheromones of those leaving, only defending against those not yet inside. The mode can be adjusted in real-time, and we have abandoned quantity stones for this model. This defense shield employs full artificial…”


She continued to talk for a long time, and Jian Luo didn’t hear a word of it. He only caught a crucial point—abandoned quantity stones!


They don’t want them? 


The new defense shield seemed to be very expensive, and Jian Luo thought it was a perfect fit for his scavenging skills. 


Seizing the opportunity while the presenter was giving her passionate speech, Jian Luo whispered to Lu Shifeng, “How much does this new defense shield cost?”


Lu Shifeng, with an extra ounce of patience for the Assistant Commander, said, “It depends on the size. One square meter costs 1 million star coins.”




Jian Luo’s eyes widened, and he almost stopped breathing.


“How… how expensive is that?” Jian Luo exclaimed, then quickly whispered, “How many do we need?”


The secretary next to them said, “Lu Luo, these are combat defensive shields intended for all battleships. We don’t need to purchase this one, even though its security is sufficient. In actual combat, it falls short.”


Jian Luo nodded and said, “I see.”


Although it might not be enough for the big shots, it was more than sufficient for a place like Little Blue Star, where their biggest battles were usually against local wildlife.


Jian Luo inquired, “So, which one are we going to purchase then?”


The secretary pointed to a nearby transparent protective shield.


As expected, the presenter recognized the lack of interest in the previous one and switched to introduce the main attraction. “This is our latest 3.0 defense shield, which is both offensive and defensive. It comes with an embedded anti-reconnaissance system, capable of predicting enemy movement within approximately 100 kilometers…”


Jian Luo’s mind was still on the previous model.


At a rate of 1 million star coins per square meter, calculating the cost to cover the city at their base, it would cost several billion.


The sum of money was enormous, beyond comprehension, and thinking about it made Jian Luo feel impoverished. 


After the tour, it was already dark outside.


Lu Shifeng asked, “Are you thinking of buying any?”


Jian Luo sighed, “No, I don’t have that much money. I’ll think about it some more.”


Lu Shifeng didn’t ask further.


Although he was somewhat troubled, Jian Luo was the kind of person with a broad mind. He quickly put his concerns behind him and began to look forward to dreaming about the future once again.


The room provided to them by the industrial star was full of high-tech features.


As they entered, the light door unlocked on its own. Once inside, the sensor lights automatically lit up, and all the room’s devices started running. There were minimal furnishings, and everything was controlled through the wall’s light screen.


In general, it was a highly advanced and futuristic place, even though Dark Star’s technology was not lacking either.


Lu Shifeng commented, “The bed here doesn’t have a mattress.”


Jian Luo looked at the central bed, noticing its unique design. It was a kind of suspended bed, floating in the air. When a person lay on it, it felt like entering a sleeping pod. Everything seemed fine, except for the fact that it was quite firm. 


“I didn’t expect that,” Jian Luo said.


He didn’t know if he would get used to sleeping on it or if it would affect his ability to dream.


Lu Shifeng gave him a glance and said, “Let the secretary bring your mattress from your bed at home. We’ll put it on here later.”




Jian Luo was taken aback, filled with surprise.


Lu Shifeng stated, “I’ve finally put on some weight; it can’t stand too much hardship.”




Go to hell.


Regardless of the process, in the end, Jian Luo got his way and slept on the larger bed. Because this planet’s industry was so advanced, the bed’s functions were impressive. It had a sleep mode, a learning mode, and even an internet mode.


It was essentially a must-have bed for nerds and otaku.


Jian Luo chose the sleep mode, and when he activated it, he could clearly feel the firmness of the bed adjusting to the most comfortable position for sleeping. It would aid him in falling asleep faster.


The dream world was chaotic.


Jian Luo found himself momentarily lost in this dreamscape. It felt like he was looking at himself from a god-like perspective. He lay in a small room, which could only be described as shabby. It was raining outside, and he was alone in the room.


Jian Luo was writhing in pain on the bed when he started to wonder what was happening.


Suddenly, dragons appeared!


Three dragons emerged right in front of him!




Jian Luo’s eyes widened, and he could hardly believe it. He had imagined what his future might look like, but he couldn’t have imagined this particular scenario.


He, alone, had birthed a child and was inside a thatched hut.


In the dream, he slowly sat up. The three baby dragons that had hatched were still quite small, about the size of his palm. They were all wet, two of them were black, and one had a pale, golden-colored skin. Jian Luo suspected it might have inherited his skin tone. Well, it was fine that way; it balanced out his dream of having golden dragons, even if the color was mixed.


Just as he was thinking about this, one of the baby dragons slowly opened its eyes. They were a pure and vibrant blood-red color.


Then, he heard faint whining sounds. The dragon babies were hungry and wanted to eat. Unfortunately, there was nothing to eat in the thatched hut, only a profound sense of loneliness.


Evidently, Jian Luo in the dream realized this, too. Just as Jian Luo thought he was about to come up with a solution, he watched as he took something from storage, which he couldn’t identify but suspected might be a steamed bun, and crushed a piece to feed to the dragon baby.




“No way!”


Jian Luo sat up from his bed, surprised.


When he opened his eyes again, there was no difference in the furnishings in the room from before he fell asleep. He breathed lightly and had a layer of sweat on his forehead. Recalling the scene from his dream, it sent shivers down his spine.


What on earth was that?


Why was he in a thatched hut?


He was supposed to be the world’s hope, so why was he starting by eating a steamed bun?


Before eating that fruit, he was filled with anticipation, thinking he would foresee a beautiful future. Who would have thought that the future he saw was not beautiful in the least?


Jian Luo was overwhelmed with discomfort. He covered his face and said, “This can’t be real…”


Just as he was pondering this, he heard Lu Shifeng’s voice beside him, “Having a bad dream?”


Jian Luo suddenly looked up and found Lu Shifeng standing there, dressed impeccably in military attire. Whenever the Grand Marshal appeared, it felt like he was a source of stability.


Jian Luo replied, “I had a dream.”


Lu Shifeng raised an eyebrow and asked, “About the future?”


“I’m not sure,” Jian Luo replied. He was reluctant to accept that it was about the future. “I dreamt that I gave birth to a child in a thatched hut.”


Lu Shifeng sat down beside him and calmly said, “Dark Star possesses the most comprehensive tracking system. If you try to run, your chances of success will be as high as the size of a speck of dust.”


Jian Luo was unconvinced. “Why would I want to run? It’s not like I’m eloping with a lover. What’s the benefit of running? I have my mother and brother to consider. I’m not that silly!”


Lu Shifeng seemed satisfied with his response, and his gaze held a trace of approval. “That’s the best way.”


Under the weight of that gaze, Jian Luo suddenly felt a bit flustered. He cautiously ventured toward the edge of disaster with a wild question, “What if… I mean, just if… if I were to run with them, what would happen?”

Chapter 129 – Who Says Omegas Can’t be as Explosive as Alphas

Chapter 129: Unveiling Together (2)


When he saw the vast fleet appearing in the sky above the planet, Cen Junfeng was on the verge of tears from overwhelming joy.


Whether it was due to spending too much time with Lu Jingning or perhaps because of their underlying camaraderie, he couldn’t wait for Wen Xingchen to disembark from the battleship. He rushed up without any reservation, filled with pent-up frustrations: “I’m not kidding, Admiral, could you please take better care of your Omega? Running around aimlessly all day long, who could endure that? Seriously, who could?!”


Whether other crew members thought Cen Junfeng had gone mad, they knew one thing: his incessant chatter was close to driving them insane.


How else could these people be from Admiral Lu Jingning’s team? Being able to speak so freely to their commanding officer, it was akin to disregarding their own lives!


Wen Xingchen’s gaze swept towards the seemingly bottomless abyss, interrupting Cen Junfeng’s incessant rant with an expressionless face: “How long has he been down there?”


Cen Junfeng counted on his fingers: “Five days…”


A faint press of Wen Xingchen’s lips showed a hint of seriousness. He shrugged off his coat and casually tossed it to a crew member: “I’ll go check.”


Cen Junfeng: “Huh?”


“You don’t need to come along.”


Before anyone could react, without giving a moment for response, Wen Xingchen effortlessly stashed an energy gun into his pouch, took the sword handed to him, and walked away, disappearing in the blink of an eye.


Cen Junfeng: “??!”


He held back but couldn’t contain his outburst: “What the heck?!”


They say, “Different families have different rules,” but what were the quirks with these two?


Compared to Lu Jingning’s crew, who had weathered many storms, one crew member asked calmly, “Sir, what should we do now?”


A sharp tug at the corner of Cen Junfeng’s mouth ceased any further hesitation. Swiftly, he armed himself and hurriedly followed, leaving behind a final instruction: “I’ll assist! Keep watch up here, don’t let those insectoids escape!”


The group responded solemnly, “We’ll ensure the mission is completed, Sir!”



After several days, under Lu Jingning’s decisive methods, even the cunning insectoids were turned upside down by him.


Completing the last stronghold, he clapped his hands contentedly and let out a long sigh.


Ah, finally, everything was taken care of!


The efficiency was satisfactory, though he wasn’t sure how much time had passed. Yet, roughly estimating, the mission should have ended on time.


With the task completed, he felt an instant relief. Glancing around, he casually picked up a rare metal rod and prepared to return the way he came.


The terrain below the abyss was somewhat intricate, but he had marked his path, making it easy to find the way back.


As Lu Jingning walked, his mind wandered.


So, how should such a special anniversary be celebrated? That was indeed a question…


Lost in thought, his steps didn’t falter. However, as he took a step, an instinctual sense of danger sent a slight chill down his neck, causing him to pause momentarily.


What’s wrong? Could there be remnants?


While the thought flashed through his mind, Lu Jingning didn’t hesitate. Almost instantly, he swung a rod towards the source.


The sharp sound of rare metal striking pierced his ears.


Unexpectedly, the opponent managed to catch his strike bare-handed. Before Lu Jingning could feel surprised, a familiar voice echoed from afar: “Don’t move, friend!”


Recognizing Cen Junfeng, Lu Jingning hesitated for a moment, halting his intended second attack.


When he turned around, he met a pair of unreadable eyes.


Lu Jingning’s movements seemed to freeze in that instant: “Brother Wen… Why are you here?”


Wen Xingchen looked down at him, a faint smile playing at his lips: “Why do you think I’m here?”


Lu Jingning remained silent for a moment, then turned, glaring fiercely at Cen Junfeng.


Cen Junfeng pretended not to notice and whistled innocently: “Uh, I’m here to keep watch for you guys!”


Chapter 129: Unveiling Together (2)


Finishing his words, he swiftly bolted away without a glance back, leaving no chance for any cover-up.


His decisive reaction was so adept that it made one feel sorry for him.


With the troublesome third wheel gone, the surroundings immediately quieted down completely.


For a moment, they could even hear each other’s breathing.


This chapter is not complete. Click on the next page to continue reading.


At that moment, Lu Jingning seemed like a student caught red-handed by the principal, quietly looking down at the ground, rare hints of guilt showing on his face.


He hadn’t forgotten his firm assurances when Wen Xingchen had left. However, this was a special circumstance, right? It couldn’t all be blamed on him, could it?


Wen Xingchen had come a long way, presumably harboring a lot of anger. But for some reason, seeing the person in front of him looking so remorseful, he suddenly felt uncertain about how to react.


After a while, he managed to lower his voice as much as possible and asked, “Why so quiet?”


Lu Jingning quirked a brow: “You go first.”


Hearing the use of respectful language, Wen Xingchen almost chuckled. He reached out, forcefully lifting Lu Jingning’s chin, forcing him to meet his eyes: “Running around everywhere, and I should speak first?”


Lu Jingning could see the restrained anger in those eyes, and seeing the disheveled appearance of the man before him, he knew what had happened. Unusually, he didn’t retort but promptly admitted his mistake: “Wen Ge, I know I was wrong.”


Wen Xingchen had intended to scold him properly, at least to give this troublemaker a bit of a lesson. However, hearing such a soft tone, he found it hard to maintain his stern expression.


Struggling to suppress the curve of his lips, he glanced deeply at the person before him: “You said the same last time.”


Lu Jingning keenly felt a slight relaxation in the atmosphere and, seizing the opportunity, leaned in, gently pecking Wen Xingchen’s lips: “This time, I truly know I was wrong.”


Wen Xingchen’s emotions, carefully brewed for a while, shattered with this unexpected kiss.


Initially intending to say something, Lu Jingning found this tactic particularly effective and intensified his efforts.


Planting kisses one after another, he earnestly reassured: “My dear Wen Ge, I’m truly sorry, won’t dare again.”


They hadn’t seen each other for quite a while.


The cold and distant atmosphere was not suitable for a reunion, but under Lu Jingning’s provocations, it brought forth an overwhelming longing.


Initially just a one-sided attempt to please, under the uncontrollable emotions, Wen Xingchen’s brewing feelings of anger dissipated completely during the return journey.


Eventually, the two found themselves locked in each other’s arms, a brief touch turning into a deep and lengthy kiss.


After a long while, having vented all their emotions thoroughly, they reluctantly separated.


Wen Xingchen looked at the watery eyes of Lu Jingning, neither smiling nor scolding, finally asking helplessly, “So, why were you in such a rush to finish here?”


Unexpectedly, Lu Jingning didn’t answer, instead casting a reproachful glance and sounding displeased: “Have you forgotten?”


Wen Xingchen was slightly taken aback: “Forgotten what?”


Lu Jingning shrugged: “If you’ve forgotten, forget it.”


Wen Xingchen, grasping the random statement, suddenly realized: “You mean our wedding anniversary?”


Lu Jingning, with a touch of irritation, glanced at him: “What else?”


Such an important day was marked by both of them every year; it was impossible to forget. Yet, Wen Xingchen hadn’t expected Lu Jingning to be so reckless, all in an effort to make it on that day.


He couldn’t quite describe his feelings, but he felt a sudden softening of his tensed heart.


Wen Xingchen gazed at Lu Jingning for a long time, his lips finally twitching faintly. However, his words remained strict: “Whatever the reason, it’s not a reason to venture into danger alone.”


Lu Jingning, caught off guard by Wen Xingchen’s firmness despite his own guilt, could only mutter reluctantly, “Then what do you want?”


As the words fell, he suddenly felt lighter as Wen Xingchen hoisted him up by the waist.


A look of surprise flashed in his eyes, as Wen Xingchen’s deep and magnetic voice landed softly near his ear: “When we return, see how I’ll punish you.”


Such words, if heard by other crew members, would surely shock them. However, in the current ambiguous setting, these words held a different, profound meaning.


Rarely feeling his cheeks warm, Lu Jingning didn’t struggle but instead snuggled into the familiar embrace, letting himself be carried away.


Words were said in a civilized manner, but what other punishment could there be?


Tsk, coming back and finding excuses to act naughty, shameless!

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 130 – Who Says Omegas Can’t be as Explosive as Alphas

Chapter 130: Extra Story One


At the banquet hosted by senior military officials, the hall was filled with a lavish display of clinking glasses and bustling conversations. However, for five-year-old Lu Jingning, it all seemed excessively dull.


Taking advantage of the time when his dad and older brother were occupied with socializing, he slipped away unnoticed. The evening breeze carried a unique coolness, a stark contrast to the overly bustling atmosphere inside the hall.


With everyone crowded inside, it meant no one would interfere with Lu Jingning’s actions, granting him an unusual sense of freedom. He casually found a small twig on the way, recalling the path from memory, and strolled toward the slightly secluded artificial lake.


Though only five this year, under the guidance of Lu Kongbin, little Lu Jingning had already begun creating his own moves. The pond at home was rather small, so this was a perfect chance to utilize the larger lake to test the effectiveness of his new move.


Calculating in his mind, Lu Jingning felt quite pleased. Seeing no one around, he gleefully waved the twig in his hand and dashed towards the lake.


However, before the twig completed its full arc in the air and as he was about to hurl it towards the center of the lake, an unexpectedly slender figure appeared in his field of vision.


Lu Jingning abruptly halted his movement, almost using all his strength to forcefully alter the direction of the twig. Instead of splitting the surface of the lake as intended, the momentum diverted, causing the nearby bushes to be overturned with a clatter.


The commotion drew the attention of Wen Xingchen, standing by the lake, prompting him to turn around. Despite the somewhat immature appearance on Lu Jingning’s face, there was hardly any surprise at such an abrupt event. He calmly gazed at Lu Jingning standing not far away.


Perhaps due to the sudden distraction, there was a faint furrow on his brow when his gaze shifted from the blonde hair.


Despite the late hour and the absence of streetlights nearby, it didn’t hinder Lu Jingning’s vision. Initially sensing someone’s presence, the faint starlight revealed that the person was actually a child around his age, yet with a rather serious and mature demeanor.


In simple terms, a disposition that completely contradicted his short stature.


Seeing the other person furrow his brows, Lu Jingning unconsciously mimicked the expression. He hurriedly took three steps and dashed over, standing right in front of Wen Xingchen, staring motionlessly for a while.


Though only five, Wen Xingchen already had a somewhat aloof character. His gaze shifted from the blonde hair and he asked, “Good-looking?”


Lu Jingning was caught off guard by the question, his round eyes widening even further. “What are you doing here so late? It could have been dangerous if I hadn’t stopped in time!”


Wen Xingchen’s lips twitched slightly. “Aren’t you a kid?”


Lu Jingning, although retorted against, didn’t seem angry. It seemed as if he suddenly remembered something. After observing Wen Xingchen for a while, he approached with a smile. “Are you an Alpha?”


Caught off guard by the sudden change in topic, Wen Xingchen hesitated. “Yes.”


In this era, all ABO orientations were generally detected accurately at birth and weren’t considered much of a secret.


Lu Jingning’s eyes lit up at the revelation and he asked, “How old are you?”


Wen Xingchen replied, “Five.”


Just after answering, he fell into a brief silence. Why did he even bother answering this little brat’s question?


Lu Jingning simply said, “Oh,” then tilted his head and smiled at him. “Would you mind arm wrestling with me?”


Wen Xingchen remained silent.


Lu Jingning, very actively, grabbed his hand and pulled him outside. “Even though I’m an Omega, my goal is to defeat all the Alphas. In my family, there’s only my dad as an Alpha, who’s an adult. It’s normal I can’t beat him, so meeting you is great! Since we’re both five, let’s see who’s stronger, alright?”


Wen Xingchen replied, “Not interested.”


He came outside to find some peace, only to unexpectedly encounter someone even more unsettling.


However, Lu Jingning seemed oblivious to his response, happily declaring, “Let’s decide on it happily like this!”


The two of them, hand in hand, swiftly emerged from the trees by the lake’s edge.

Wen Xingchen’s gaze lowered slightly, falling upon the small hands tightly clasped together. Although they were just kids, Omega wrists appeared slimmer. As Lu Jingning pulled him along, the warmth from their joined palms transmitted a pleasant sensation, dispersing a considerable amount of the night’s chill.


Wen Xingchen found himself distracted for a moment, forgetting to pull away. When he snapped back to reality, Lu Jingning had already stopped, pointing excitedly to a nearby pavilion. His eyes sparkled with anticipation. “Let’s compete here!”


Subconsciously, Wen Xingchen wanted to refuse, but upon meeting Lu Jingning’s gaze, for some unknown reason, he agreed reluctantly. “Just one round.”


Lu Jingning had no objections to the number of rounds. Upon hearing Wen Xingchen’s agreement, he was delighted. Bending down, he earnestly rolled up the sleeves on both their small hands.


Observing Lu Jingning’s overly earnest demeanor, Wen Xingchen couldn’t help but want to laugh. Yet, just as Lu Jingning was about to raise his head, Wen Xingchen swiftly averted his gaze, also lowering his head to roll up his sleeves.


If anyone happened to pass by, they would witness two small figures standing on either side of stone chairs inside the spacious pavilion. Their elbows rested on the chair’s surface, hands tightly clasped together. Except for their flushed faces, it would appear as if time had frozen.


Eventually, both couldn’t sustain the strain, and in a tie, they collapsed on the ground, panting heavily, utterly disregarding their composure.


Lu Jingning, looking at Wen Xingchen, extended his thumb, praising generously, “You’re amazing!”


Accustomed to various compliments, Wen Xingchen felt his cheeks redden even more at this sincere praise.


After a moment’s thought, he replied, “You’re amazing too.”


Lu Jingning seemed to be pondering something and didn’t have much of a reaction to his words. After a while, he earnestly asked, “Are all these Alphas as impressive as you?”


Sensing Lu Jingning’s slight disappointment, Wen Xingchen instinctively wanted to comfort him. After contemplating for a while, he picked a phrase he thought the other might like to hear. “Probably. I might be a bit more exceptional.”


Although he wasn’t close to Wen Muqiao, judging from others’ attitudes, he could generally sense the disparity between himself and other kids his age. This difference likely stemmed from their abilities.


Initially feeling defeated because he couldn’t surpass Lu Kongbin and now not even able to beat a randomly encountered Alpha, Lu Jingning felt utterly disheartened.


However, hearing Wen Xingchen’s response slightly eased his mind. He softly uttered, “Hmm,” with a serious expression, extending his pinky finger. With a hint of pride and stubbornness in his tone, he said, “Let’s make a promise with a pinky swear. I’ll definitely surpass you next time!”


Under his intense gaze, Wen Xingchen, strangely moved, extended his hand as well. The two tiny fingers gently hooked together.


In the faint starlight, this might be the longest-lasting secret pact, hidden from the world’s eyes.



The rare holiday granted by the military was initially cozy and comfortable in every way. Until one day, for reasons unknown to Wen Xingchen, Lu Jingning, in the early hours, suddenly dragged him out of bed, insisting on playing arm wrestling.


When asked why, Lu Jingning looked at him earnestly. “You might not believe it, but I had a dream yesterday!”


The glint in Wen Xingchen’s eyes shimmered subtly. “A dream about us arm wrestling?”


Lu Jingning exclaimed, “How did you know???!”


Wen Xingchen, observing his bewildered expression, smiled slightly. “Funny enough, I had the same dream.”


Perhaps, it wasn’t a coincidence after all.

Chapter 8 – Partner (2)

       Cyprus was originally an island country, also known as the Holy Land of Love. Because one could enjoy the most beautiful rivers of stars in the universe on the seaside at night, thousands of ordinary couples flocked to it.

       When Qin Yun and the others arrived, many people were already on the beach. Although ordinary people could not see the spiritual link, they couldn’t rule out that there would be a sentinel and guide couple.

       “Is it okay if you put the spiritual link here?” Qin Yun asked worriedly, “Will it scare others?”

       Xi Zhao had no time to lose his temper. He found a deserted rock and jumped on it. He turned around and stretched out his hand to Qin Yun, “Come here.”

       Qin Yun stood next to Xi Zhao. Many couples were looking at them, and Qin Yun’s face felt a little hot under the scrutiny, “This place is too lively…it’s a bit bad with so many people…”

       “Not good… No good…” Qin Yun slowly opened his mouth. He raised his neck mechanically and stared at Xi Zhao’s back in shock, “That… D-d-d-d-dragon offfh!” He abruptly covered his mouth with his hand, turned to look around, and noticed that a few couples had glanced in their direction, but their reactions seemed calm.

       Qin Yun turned around carefully. The black dragon was still squatting on the spot. It followed Qin Yun’s movements and tilted its head. Its huge wings somewhat comically folded in front of its chest.

       “I call him Zhongyan1great flames.” Xi Zhao’s tone was calm as if he was just saying that the weather was very good today, “No one can see him except you.”


       The moon hung in the sky, the river of stars in Cyprus was vast and magnificent, and the lovers on the beach cuddled up to each other quietly, whispering words of love.

       Zhongyan frolicked in the night sky, seemingly delighted by the stars. He always stretched out his claws to reach them or flew with his belly upward as if the whole dragon were nestled in the embrace of the starry river.

       Qin Yun couldn’t help but laugh. He looked to his side and saw Xi Zhao lying on the rock with his eyes closed, both arms resting on the back of his head, breathing peacefully as he slept.

       Qin Yun looked at him for a long time before turning his face again and looking at the vast starry sky above his head.

       Zhongyan’s huge wings cut across the sky. It circled several times and landed in front of Qin Yun. He lowered his head, and around his chest hung a pendant adorned with shattered diamonds, shaped like a violent bear.

       “…” Qin Yun: “So that phone case is yours…”

       Zhongyan snorted and folded his wings shyly, trying to hide his huge dragon face.

       Qin Yun cautiously reached out his hand, and Zhongyan blinked. He lowered his head obediently and allowed the other’s palm to caress his muzzle.

       “You are such a beautiful and majestic big guy.” Qin Yun sighed. The touch under his palm was cold and smooth, and the black dragon scales glowed with a cool lustre in the moonlight.

       Qin Yun simply stretched out his guiding tendrils and ‘stroked’ the dragon’s neck and back. Zhongyan turned over his belly comfortably, his wings swayed back and forth against the ground, and his huge tail slapped the seawater.

       Qin Yun: “…” Born as such a cool and stunning dragon, is it really okay for you to be so good at being cute?!


       Xi Zhao frowned and looked at Qin Yun, whose hands and feet were shaking from fatigue, and said disapprovingly, “Don’t give in to its every whim; you’ll spoil him.”

       “It’s hard, he’s rare…” Qin Yun rubbed his sore arm, “It’s usually only you around him, which can be quite lonely for him.”

       Xi Zhao cast a glance at him, his expression turning a bit sour.

       Qin Yun chuckled and said half-jokingly, “Actually, coming to a place like this alone… must be lonely for you too, right?”

       Xi Zhao didn’t say anything. He opened the aircraft door, turned around suddenly, and his face was almost close to Qin Yun’s. He pulled off the other person’s collar, looked at it, and whispered, “The mental marks seem to have faded a bit.”

       Qin Yun: “…Have they?” He turned his neck to see behind him, but Xi Zhao suddenly clamped his chin.

       “…” Qin Yun didn’t get many pheromones, but his lips were swollen from being kissed…

       “Let’s come together next time.” Qin Yun fastened his seat belt and yawned, feeling a little drowsy, “The Cyprus Galaxy is really beautiful.”

       Xi Zhao adjusted the autopilot and slowed down the aircraft to prevent it from bumping. He casually asked, “Why? Haven’t seen enough today?”

       Qin Yun drooped his eyelids and complained drowsily before falling asleep, “Zhongyan is too big… blocking the front… I can’t see anything.”

       Xi Zhao: “…”


       Shen Zhuofan was in the middle of opening a can for Sweetheart when Qin Yun’s face appeared on the communication device. Sweetheart didn’t even eat the can and rushed forward with a meowl, clawing at the image with her paws.

       “Ah, it’s such a pity that I can’t touch you.” Qin Yun laughed loudly, and he greeted Shen Zhuofan, “I am going on a mission next month, and I have sent the stabiliser to you. Remember to collect it.”

       Shen Zhuofan frowned, “Why are you going on a mission so soon? Is it dangerous?”

       Qin Yun: “It’s a bit dangerous…but there will be a separate sentinel to protect me this time, so don’t worry.”

       Shen Zhuofan was silent for a while and suddenly asked, “Qin Yun, do you know who the sentinel is that gave you a mental mark?”

       “I know.” Qin Yun took a cat teaser and teased Sweetheart in the video, “What’s wrong?”

       Shen Zhuofan took a breath, “His spiritual link is a dragon, right?”

       Qin Yun’s movements paused, and he said awkwardly, “Hehe, you know…”

       “The question is not whether I know it or not.” Shen Zhuofan rubbed his forehead with a headache, “The question is, who do you think has a god-level spiritual link?”

       Qin Yun: “??”

       Shen Zhuofan rolled his eyes: “Moschery-Xi Zhao-Issa, this is the full name of the current emperor. His photos are on the front pages of all major websites. He’s the super VVVVVIP diamond bachelor on the universal dating sites. I heard that he had previously crippled the brains of several guides… Have you been in battle too much until you lost your mind? How come you don’t even know these gossips?”

       Qin Yun looked at Shen Zhuofan like an idiot, and the cat teasing stick in his hand fell to the ground with a ‘pop’ sound. Sweetheart meowed, raised its paw pad, and slapped it on the communication device.


       Qin Yun had been wandering around outside the palace alone for a long time. He came here early this morning. He got off at the wrong stop on the way because he was not familiar with it. When he got there, he realised that he was as clueless as an idiot… He didn’t even have Xi Zhao’s private communication identification number.

       I am such a failure… Qin Yun thought depressingly. He was probably the first guide in the universe who had established a mental mark but didn’t even know who his sentinel was.

       Just as he was hesitating whether to go back first, the palace gate suddenly opened automatically, and the stereotypical and kind voice of old butler, Ba Jin, rang out from the huge loudspeaker in the plaza.

       “Dear Mr. Qin Yun.” Ba Jin said respectfully, “We welcome your arrival.”

       Qin Yun reflexively bowed toward the loudspeaker, “Thank you, thank you! You are so polite!”


       Ba Jin coughed, looked at Moschery, who was flipping through documents in the study, and said with a smile, “Your Majesty, your little guide is very interesting.”

       Moschery glanced out the window and said angrily, “What’s so interesting? He’s stupid as hell.”


       Before Qin Yun went upstairs, he saw Ba Jin standing respectfully at the top of the stairs and bowing slightly to him, “Hello, Mr. Qin Yun.”

       “No, no need to be so polite.” Qin Yun was so nervous that he almost crouched down, “Hello, hello!”

       Ba Jin laughed and patted Qin Yun on the back, “Young man, don’t be nervous. I will take you to see His Majesty.”

       Moschery’s study was very large, and there was a door in the middle that divided it into two rooms. When Qin Yun entered, he saw Zhongyan lying on the ground with his tail on his head, and he immediately raised his head when he saw him.

       Ba Jin observed his expression and asked softly, “Can you see His Highness Zhongyan?”

       “Ah, yes.” Qin Yun watched Zhongyan stand up and flutter his wings, straighten the dragon’s neck and snort. The huge dragon’s muzzle stretched out in front of him and rubbed his cheek. Qin Yun touched it for a while, then remembered that Ba Jin couldn’t see.

       The old butler didn’t mind at all. He made tea for Qin Yun, handed it to Qin Yun with a plate of snacks, and said with a smile, “His Majesty may be busy for a while, so I’ll have to trouble you to stay here with His Highness Zhongyan.”

       Qin Yun warily and hurriedly agreed, waiting until Ba Jin had left before letting out a sigh of relief.

       “It’s just the two of us now.” Qin Yun touched Zhongyan’s head.


       A spiritual link couldn’t be too far away from the owner. Since Zhongyan was here, it meant that Moschery was on the other side of the door. Qin Yun took a piece of biscuit, lay on the dark glass door and stared at it for a long time. Zhongyan also followed his example, lying next to him.

       “How come I can’t see anything?” Qin Yun muttered as he made a face at the glass door, and Zhongyan also bared his teeth.

       Qin Yun rolled his eyes, and Zhongyan also tried hard to roll his golden eyes upward.

       Qin Yun made a pig snout gesture, saying, “Oink, oink!”

       Zhongyan dilated his nostrils, “Huh! Huh!”

       Qin Yun: “You are my little, oh little apple~”

       Zhongyan flapped his wings from side to side, but his tail accidentally hit Qin Yun in the face…

       Qin Yun: “…”


       The snacks made by Ba Jin were delicious. Qin Yun bit into a piece of apple pie as his eyes fell on Zhongyan’s neck.

       “Toothless?” Qin Yun played with the shiny dragon-shaped pendant, “You must have attached these rhinestones yourself…the workmanship is really bad.”

       Zhongyan blinked. He stood up and shook his wings vigorously. Then a bunch of rhinestones fell to the ground.

       “…” Qin Yun, “Is this all yours?”

       Zhongyan nodded proudly. It seemed a little excited. When it wanted to stand up, its foot suddenly slipped. The whole dragon fell into the pile of rhinestones. The Toothless dragon rhinestone, which was not very secure at first, suddenly crumbled into pieces.

       Qin Yun: “…”

       Chong Yan: “…QAQ”

       Qin Yun: “I’ll stick it! I’ll help you stick it! No crying!!”

       The giant black dragon shrank its wings and squatted aside, sobbing. Qin Yun lay on the ground, using tweezers to carefully mend the rhinestones while comforting it, “Don’t worry, I’ll stick an ultra-luxurious version of Toothless for you, dazzling everyone for sure.”

       Zhongyan nodded while crying.

       Qin Yun sighed, took off his coat and handed it over, “Good boy, wipe your nose.”


       When Skarter came in, Zhongyan was blowing his nose, and there was a coat floating strangely in the air with sticky liquid on it. Qin Yun was fully immersed in the realm of human and diamond integration, completely unaware that there was an extra person in the room.

       He didn’t react until the middle partition door opened automatically.

       “…” Qin Yun quickly got up from the ground, not forgetting to put the attached Toothless back on Zhongyan’s neck.

      Skarter coughed and suppressed a laugh, “The dragon is not easy to coax…thank you for your hard work.”

       Qin Yun nodded awkwardly and bowed, “Of course, of course.”

      Skarter composed his expression and gestured in a welcoming manner, and Qin Yun quickly made his way, allowing the general to enter the study first. The general stopped the courtesy and entered the study room first. Qin Yun followed behind with relief. When the door closed, he subconsciously looked back. Take a look—

       Qin Yun: “???!!!”

      Skarter only heard a ‘bang’ sound, and Qin Yun, like a dead fish, slammed into the glass door with a fierce expression on his face. However, from the general’s perspective, he could only see into the adjacent room, where a glittering Toothless pendant was bouncing around on the ceiling.

      Skarter: “What’s wrong…? Oh, I forgot. This door can be seen from the inside but is dark from the outside. Isn’t it a good design?”

       Qin Yun: “……#¥%@#¥%*&”

      Skarter looked confused behind the desk, His Majesty the Emperor, who was staring at the documents seriously, “What happened to him?”

       “…” Moschery turned over another page with a blank expression.

       Skarter looked strange and said, “…Your Majesty, why are you reading the “Bonding Heat Instruction Manual”?”

Zhongyan is basically Toothless, lolol
I wonder if Zhongyan trying to imitate Toothless behaviour
