Chapter 32 – To Choose

       Fang Mingyan and Chu Yu looked at each other for a few seconds and then laughed self-deprecatingly, “In that case, it’s me who is meddling in other people’s business.”

       “Let me introduce you.” Xu Ye patted Zhuo Yue on the shoulder and introduced him to the several people present. When he arrived at Qin Mu, Zhuo Yue took the initiative to greet him, “Lawyer Qin.” He now knew why he had a strong aura similar to Fang Mingyan’s; it turned out that he was also a Dom.

       “There is no need to use that name to address me here. You can call me Pharaoh.” Qin Mu’s attitude was very gentle.

       “I don’t need to introduce the rest of you. You should be familiar with each other.” Xu Ye deliberately left Fang Mingyan for last.

       Zhuo Yue saw him looking up at him, lowered his head with some restraint, and said softly, “Sir.”

       Fang Mingyan slowly glanced at him with a calm gaze and curled his lips, “I hope you enjoy your time on the East Coast, newcomer.”

       Being looked at like this, Zhuo Yue felt something suffocating in his heart and said quietly, “Thank you.”

       Xu Ye saw that the atmosphere grow awkward again, so he said, “It’s too boring here. Let me take you for a walk,” and led him to the open area of ​​​​the venue. With his outstanding appearance and elegant demeanor, Zhuo Yue, like a lamb thrown into a wolf pack, soon found himself surrounded by a circle of people, including some skilled Doms.

       The Lion glanced in the direction of the bustle and said expressionlessly, “You and I both know very well that he is not a complete Sub.”

       Chu Yu raised his eyes and looked at him, “His application is voluntary. It has been approved by more than 70% of the senior officials. There are no issues with the procedure.” He paused. “Whether it is to become a sub or find some other dom, it is his free choice.”

       “Is it his ‘free’ choice to come here or someone else’s deliberate instigation?”

       “If I remember correctly, your master-slave contract with him has ended. Whatever his reasons for entering the East Coast should be of no concern to you. Is the concern you are showing now from the standpoint of the previous master or the standpoint of the boss of the company?”

       Chu Yu’s question made Fang Mingyan speechless for a moment.

       Qin Mu on the side added leisurely, “As the company boss, you indeed have the right to intervene, considering Zhuo Yue signed a contract that leaves him with no personal life.”

       Fang Mingyan smiled helplessly, “Are you guys ganging up on me today?”

       “Xia Ran and I didn’t participate in anything.” Sima Jun raised his wrist and looked at his watch, “It will be nine o’clock soon. Tonight’s activities should be quite exciting.”

       “What activity?” Xu Ye returned to the sofa area and sat down next to Chu Yu.

       “Did you lose that cute newbie?” Seeing that he was the only one back, Xia Ran asked.

       “Zhuo Yue is more popular than I thought. In just a short period of time, seven or eight Doms expressed their willingness to contract with him, so I suppose my mission is accomplished.” Xu Ye said as he glanced at Fang Mingyan. Fang Mingyan remained as steady as a rock, talking with Qin Mu as if he didn’t care about Xu Ye’s words at all. He couldn’t help but feel a little frustrated and asked Sima Jun, “The waiter just gave both Zhuo Yue and me a number card. Is it related to tonight’s event?”

       “Yeah. Number cards will be randomly drawn tonight, and the person who is drawn will go on stage with their dom or sub for a public performance.”

       His eyes widened, “What’s the performance?”

       “Did you see that carousel? Binding, whipping, props, tolerance training, and other things. You’ll know what you’re playing when you spin it.”

       “What if we get someone who doesn’t have a CP(match)?”

       “You can invite someone on the spot, or you can ask the host to randomly pair you up. The number boxes for doms and subs are separate.”

       “That’s it.” Xu Ye tilted his head and smiled meaningfully at Chu Yu with a bright light flashing in his eyes.

       Chu Yu lowered his eyes, curled his lips, rubbed his head, lowered his voice, and said, “Don’t go too far.”

       He nodded and ran away happily.

       When the performance started, everyone gathered around the small central stage.

       After the first two groups finished their bondage and deep obedience training performances, the host drew the third number from the carton of the Sub group.

       Number 039.

       Immediately afterward, Zhuo Yue, who was holding the same number plate in his hand, was pulled onto the stage by the host with a look of confusion.

       “Sorry, I don’t understand the rules yet…” He tried to explain but was interrupted.

       “Mr. Number 39, you just joined the club today, what a coincidence,” said the young male host called ‘Rabbit’ as he flipped through the information in his hand. He made a gesture of invitation and said, “Don’t worry, I’ll explain the rules of the event clearly to you. Come on, spin the wheel of fortune, let’s see what you’ll draw.”

       Zhuo Yue looked at the yellow carousel with some embarrassment. The divisions on it were very complex, with many professional terms he didn’t understand. However, at this moment, he was on the stage and couldn’t back down, so he could only turn the handle and leave it to fate.

       The rotation speed became slower and slower, and the indicator finally stopped in the ‘whipping’ area, pointing to the red grid of ‘soft whip, more than two meters, front, no props, four times’.

       “Ah, the red block, the most difficult whipping.” Rabbit looked at him with a smile and asked, “Do you have CP?”

       Zhuo Yue turned his attention to the audience. Sitting on the sofa closest to the stage was his former owner. At this moment, the other person looked at him with a very indifferent expression, as if he was looking at a stranger who had nothing to do with him. Feeling empty in his heart, he answered softly, “No.”

       “So, is there a Dom you like more? You can try to invite him to come up and perform with you.” The host suggested.

       Zhuo Yue lowered his head and said, “No.”

       “It looks like you need me to help you find someone.” He shouted to the audience with a smile, “Ladies and gentlemen, the one in the center of the stage now is a newbie Sub, with an unknown personality, unknown stability, and unknown body sensitivity—everything is unknown, yet he has spun the most difficult whipping. This will probably be the most challenging performance tonight, and it is also the best stage for Dom to show his strength. Is anyone willing to go on stage? Come and perform with this Sub Number 39?”

       This speech was quite provocative, and many Doms in the audience showed a desire to go on stage, but they restrained themselves and didn’t raise their hands. One reason was that whipping like this could easily injure the Sub if they were not careful, requiring excellent skills and a good sense of touch. The second reason was because they had no understanding of this brand-new Sub. If they couldn’t build trust and control their emotions within a limited time, once the Sub panicked and acted out, the consequences would be disastrous. Therefore, all the DOMs were very cautious. After all, in such a public setting, nobody wanted to risk causing harm to a Sub.

       After a period of hesitation, someone finally raised his hand.

       Seeing the person clearly, Sima Jun almost choked on his drink and coughed for a while. Xu Ye was also stunned and felt anxious as he watched the person slowly walk onto the stage. He frowned and whispered urgently to Chu Yu beside him, “I originally intended for Lion to go up, but…”

       “Shh—” The man pressed his index finger on his lips, with a vague smile in his eyes, “Just watch quietly.”

       “Mr. Number 28.” The host flipped through the information in his hand and said, “Junior member, less than a year of experience. In the section where you listed outstanding skills in your registration, you wrote ‘bondage’ but did not mention the use of whips. To ensure the safety of the Sub, I need to understand your proficiency with soft whips. Would you mind demonstrating with a prop?”

       “The Dom’s skill is not measured by the time it takes to become a member. Since I’m on stage, it means I can handle it.” The young man said impatiently.

       “Excellent binding. Haha, he almost suffocated that Sub just now.” Xia Ran sneered, “This guy is really thick-skinned.”

       Indeed, the young man who volunteered to come on stage is the same DOM who sought guidance from the Pharaoh earlier, whose skills were so poor that they couldn’t bear watching.

       The host turned to Zhuo Yue helplessly, “So…are you willing to accept the training of Mr. Dom Number 28?”

       Zhuo Yue had been standing quietly, like a lonely tree. He was silent for a while, then lowered his gaze and said, “Yes.”

       No. 28 took the soft red whip from the waiter’s hand and couldn’t help but feel a little guilty. In fact, his skills were far from perfect, and the length of the whip was far beyond his control. He had never even used such a long whip on a real Sub.

       It was all just for the limelight.

       He had always wanted to find a good-looking SUB that he could show off. Unfortunately, he had too little qualifications and poor skills, so not many Subs were willing to follow him. If he could do it well this time, people in the circle would definitely look at him differently. Besides, the Sub on stage was exactly the type he wanted, and he was already itching.

       “What’s your name?” He walked up to Zhuo Yue and asked.

       “Zhuo Yue.”

       “Zhuo Yue, do you know what I’m going to do to you next?”

       Hearing this question, he looked at the other party blankly and shook his head.

       This unorganized way of asking questions made many people in the audience laugh out loud, and whispers spread. The roar of laughter made Number 28’s face flush. He suppressed his anger and said coldly, “Kneel down!”

Chapter 31 – Anew

       After Zhuo Yue moved back to the small apartment, he stayed at home for three days.

       He did almost nothing during those three days. He just wrapped himself up, curled up quietly on the bed, and held a cashmere plaid scarf tightly in his hand. Sometimes, he would cry silently and suppress the sound, bury his head in his knees, and his shoulder would shake slightly. Lin Hui didn’t know how to comfort him and was afraid that Zhuo Yue wouldn’t be able to think clearly, so he slept on the sofa in the living room and watched over him.

       On the morning of the fourth day, Zhuo Yue walked out of the room with wet hair.

       Lin Hui was startled while half asleep and immediately got up and asked, “Ge, have you taken a shower?”

       “Yes.” He responded softly and asked, “Do you prefer a one-sided or double-sided omelette?”

       Lin Hui was stunned for a moment and then realised, “Ge, if you want to have breakfast, I will buy it for you.”

       “No, I’m used to it.” Zhuo Yue opened the refrigerator and found that there were basically no ingredients except expired milk. He sighed helplessly, “Let’s go out to eat. It’s been a long time since we had breakfast outside.”

       “Okay, okay, but you need to blow dry your hair, or you’ll catch a cold soon.” Lin Hui saw that Zhuo Yue was in high spirits and a relaxed mood, so he went to find a hair dryer to dry his hair.

       The weather in March was already warm, and the wind didn’t feel too cold on the body. Zhuo Yue wore a pair of black-rimmed glasses and a hat while sitting in a corner breakfast shop drinking soy milk. Around him were young people doing morning exercises, children hurrying to school, and elderly people accustomed to rising early. The lively scene was full of vitality.

       “Ge, try this.” Lin Hui brought several baskets over, “The xiaolongbao here tastes great.”

       Looking at the steaming buns before him, Zhuo Yue remembered the first time he tried to make buns in Hanguan. He kneaded the dough while watching the tutorial. Fang Mingyan leaned aside and watched, wiping the flour off his face with his fingers. The buns that were finally made were too thick and ugly, but the man ate them all in the end.

       With sore eyes, he lowered his head and took a bite. The hot juice wrapped in the thin skin melted in his mouth.

       “Be careful! It’s hot!” Lin Hui hurriedly handed him a tissue and said, “Spit it out.”

       The burning pain occupied his mouth, and he swallowed hard, smiling in the steaming mist.

       It was so sorrowful that it made one’s heart ache.

       After breakfast, Zhuo Yue received a call from artist manager Shen Luo. The other party on the other end of the phone said coldly, “I’m not interested in knowing where you have been after disappearing for so long. I just want to ask you if you can start working now?”

       “I can.” He replied.

       “Okay, today at two o’clock in the afternoon, ‘Entertainment Weekly’ has scheduled a two-hour cover photo shoot. Get ready.” Shen Luo hung up the phone. She glared at Fang Mingyan who was sitting behind the boss’s desk angrily, and fired like a barrage of questions, “Previously, when you brought that person in, I asked you if it was that kind of relationship. You swore it wasn’t and said everything would be under my control. So I managed it, and then what happened? Just when they started to gain some fame, you hid them away and wouldn’t let me intervene in anything. Fine, I stepped back, and now you throw them back to me. Big Boss Fang, what exactly are you playing at?”

       “Calm down.” The man said leisurely with a lazy smile on his face, “You are always so angry, there are more wrinkles on your face.”

       “This is all because of you!” She didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, “Please give me a clear explanation today. What are you going to do about Zhuo Yue?”

       “I’m arranging his schedule for the time being. I’ll hand it over to you after a while.”

       “As you wish.” Shen Luo finished venting her anger and looked at him sideways, and said, “This kid has a pretty good temperament. If you really like him, then get rid of your womanising ways and take him home to take care of him properly. If you don’t like him, then let go quickly. Don’t torment him, and don’t torment me either.”

       Fang Mingyan raised his eyebrows, “When did I start messing around with women outside?”

       “…That’s not the point!”

       Zhuo Yue had gained a lot of popularity in the film industry and on the internet, and with his handsome appearance and low profile, he had received little negative press, so many businesses were willing to come to him for commercials. Some film and program crews had also been in frequent contact with Huasheng, wanting to invite him to film movies or appear in various shows. Although the salary offered was very considerable, the company suppressed it without any reason. They only arranged some pictorials and cover photos for him. After a while, he started to take pictures in the studio and participate in announcements.

       In early April, he officially signed a contract to become the spokesperson of Baihe’s high-end buffet restaurant chain. Baihe needed to shoot a series of commercials, so he spent several days filming at its headquarters restaurant.

       At noon, Xu Ye, the group’s president, visited the set in person and had lunch with them.

       The two of them chatted while eating.

       “When I went last time, you had already moved out from Fang Mingyan’s place. And I heard that there were some problems between you.” Xu Ye paused and asked, “Did Fang Mingyan propose to terminate the relationship?”

       Zhuo Yue nodded.

       “This guy is really…” Xu Ye gritted his teeth, “So irresponsible.”

       “It’s my fault.” His eyes were full of gloomy sadness, “I deceived him about some things, and that’s why it happened like this.”

       Xu Ye couldn’t help but feel a little distressed when he saw him like this. He pondered for a moment and said, “Do you still like him now?”

       He lowered his eyes to hide the emotion in his eyes and said softly, “There is no point in talking about this now.”

       “Of course it does.” Xu Ye patted his shoulder comfortingly, “If you really want to go back to him, I will try my best to help you.”

       Zhuo Yue was startled.

       The other party raised his eyebrows and smiled, “But whether you can succeed or not depends on how determined you are.”

       Spring was in full swing, and the air was still damp from the recent rain.

       As the city lights were starting to turn on, Fang Mingyan’s car stopped at the entrance of an unassuming small bar in the east of the city. A special silver elevator took him to the second floor. The large, brightly lit venue was as gorgeous as a pearl wrapped in an ordinary shell. Crowds of people scattered in twos and threes and greeted him one after another when they saw him, including many subs with admiring eyes. Without stopping, he casually took a c0cktail from the waiter’s hand and walked straight towards the VIP seating area.

       Four men were chatting in the sofa area embedded in the floor design. Fang Mingyan sat down next to Qin Mu and shook the wine glass in his hand as a greeting. He glanced at the bondage and training performance going on on the central stage, and frowned, “Since when has this level of skill been enough to perform on stage?”

       Xia Ran, who was sitting opposite him, smiled and said, “That Dom just came over to ask the Pharaoh for advice, and the Pharaoh asked him to go up and show it.”

       Sima Jun held Xia Ran’s waist and shook his head in disgust, “Don’t talk about arousing interest, this kind of tying method is going to make that Sub vomit.”

       Xia Ran rolled her eyes at him, “The first time you tied me up, you almost killed me.”

       “You don’t have to rehash old scores.” Sima Jun looked embarrassed and immediately changed the subject, “Pharaoh, I think you need to teach him from the very basics. This Dom skill is simply appalling.”

       Lawyer Qin Mu, who was wearing a black suit, smiled and snapped his fingers. He summoned the slave who was kneeling not far away and ordered, “Have them stop the performance and tell that Dom to wait for me in the side hall after today’s event.”

       “Yes, Master.” The slave responded briefly and went to do it immediately.

       This was a high-end BDSM club called the East Coast, which was owned by the Golden Eagle Group. The club had its own intricate social system and strict hierarchy. The high membership fees and rigorous entry requirements determined its membership composition. Multiple confidentiality measures and strict member regulations constrain members’ behaviour while protecting their privacy.

       The few people sitting in the VIP area at this moment were not only the founders of this club but also the masters who stood at the top of the entire BDSM circle. They reversed the initial violent BDSM trend, established game rules to protect the personal safety of subs, and cleared the boundaries of the circle. At the same time, they were top Doms regarding technical skills in their respective fields.

       Chu Yu, the leader of the Golden Eagle Group, was nicknamed ‘Earl’; lawyer Qin Mu was nicknamed ‘Pharaoh’; Sima Jun and Xia Ran could switch between Dom and Sub, using the name ‘Tom’ and ‘Jerry’—also known collectively as the cat and mouse duo. In BDSM, the Dom needs to design all game content, control the rhythm, and ensure safety, while the Sub often only needs to cooperate or endure, which results in a quantitative difference between the two. Doms with excellent skills and meticulous attention to detail were often very popular, so several of these people here were very popular. However, compared to them, the ‘Lion’, Fang Mingyan, was more popular with Sub. Because the Earl was married, the Pharaoh was abstinent, and the Cats and Mouse were self-sufficient, he was the only one who was easier to get close to.

       Everyone on the East Coast knew the three rules of the Lion; no relationships, no newcomers, no eating the grass by the nest1is a Chinese proverb that means not to take advantage of or cause trouble in one’s own community, workplace, or immediate surroundings—that means, no artists in the entertainment industry were involved. He was a hedonist who separated desires and emotions very well. He had many slaves under his command and replaced them quickly.

       At this moment, Mr. Lion was putting his long arms on the back of the sofa, looking up at the ceiling and complaining, “Boring.”

       Xia Ran glanced at him, “Where are your slaves?”

       “Tired of it.”

       “Then go find a new one. Just wander around the place, and you’ll find plenty of subs willing to submit to you.” Sima Jun said.

       “Not interested.” He leaned on the sofa and drank the wine in his glass slowly.

       “I think tonight won’t be too boring.” Chu Yu, who had been silent, glanced in the direction of the entrance and curled his lips.

       Fang Mingyan followed his gaze and was startled, his brows furrowed.

       Xu Ye, wearing a dark blue suit, walked toward them with a smile. Behind him was Zhuo Yue, who was wearing a white formal suit. Both of them were handsome and tall, attracting the attention of many people along the way.

       Xu Ye led Zhuo Yue into the VIP seating area. Just as he was about to speak, he heard a deep voice say, “Why are you here?”

       Zhuo Yue raised his head to face the man. His eyes trembled and he said, “I…”

       Before coming here, he had thought about many opening remarks. However now, when they met again, he couldn’t even say a complete sentence. He could only stand helpless and look at the other person with deep gazes.

       Xu Ye saw this and asked slightly provocatively, “Why can’t he be here?”

       The atmosphere in the area became interesting. Qin Mu glanced at Zhuo Yue and raised his lips slightly. Sima Jun and Xia Ran exchanged glances with each other, silently observing the changes. Chu Yu didn’t interfere and looked at them silently.

       “Is the current review process so relaxed that ordinary people can come and go at will?” Fang Mingyan’s tone was a bit cold.

       Xu Ye took out a card with the club’s emblem from Zhuo Yue’s pocket and said, “Look carefully. He is a newly approved member today.”

       The man frowned, “Xu Ye, you do not have the right to recommend someone who has no interest in BDSM as a member.”

       “I was his recommender.” Chu Yu, who was sitting aside, spoke slowly. “On his application form, it was clearly written that he had experience as a Sub and had established a master-slave relationship with his partner. So I think he has the qualifications to become a member.”

Chapter 26

       Zhan Weiyang later had a dream.

       He dreamt that his roots were growing out of his fingers, extending longer and longer, and piercing into the mattress. At first, they enveloped Pei Qing’s entire hand, then gradually expanded and spread, trapping Pei Qing’s entire body beneath them. He felt as if he were hovering above Pei Qing, watching from above. He saw that Pei Qing, initially asleep with eyes closed, was slowly beginning to wake up from his slumber.

       Zhan Weiyang suddenly felt nervous. He tried hard to pull himself out of the mattress, but he was firmly rooted into the mattress and couldn’t get out. So the moment he saw Pei Qing open his eyes, Zhan Weiyang woke up with a fright.

       When he opened his eyes, he could still feel his rapid heartbeat, and the next thing he realised was that he didn’t know when his entire body had burrowed inside Pei Qing’s quilt. Until he woke up he still maintained the position of holding him.

       No wonder he dreamed that he trapped Pei Qing in his roots.

       Zhan Weiyang felt very embarrassed about this, and his embarrassment even continued to breakfast. He lowered his head to eat porridge and never dared to look at Pei Qing.

       After breakfast, Zhan Weiyang said to his grandma, “I’m going out today.”

       Grandma had already eaten breakfast, but after Zhan Weiyang and Pei Qing came downstairs, she stayed with them at the dining table. When she heard Zhan Weiyang say he was going out, she quickly asked, “Where are you going, Yangyang?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “I’m going to buy a flower pot.”

       Pei Qing was eating porridge. Hearing this, he raised his head and looked at him.

       Zhan Weiyang felt nervous as soon as he met Pei Qing’s gaze, his ears turned slightly red, and he deliberately opened his eyes wide and stared at his grandma.

       Grandma asked him, “What are you buying a flower pot for? Aren’t there flower pots upstairs?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Bought it for myself.”

       Grandma asked, “Do you want to plant flowers?”

       Zhan Weiyang replied vaguely, “Yeah.”

       Grandma seemed a little worried, “Where are you going to buy it?”

       Zhan Weiyang didn’t know himself.

       Grandma said, “Grandma, go buy it for you.”

       At this time, Pei Qing couldn’t help but say, “I’ll go with him.”

       Zhan Weiyang glanced secretly at Pei Qing.

       Grandma turned to Pei Qing and said, “Do you know where to buy it?”

       Pei Qing said, “We should be able to find them at a flower market or a florist’s shop.”

       Grandma nodded, “Yes,” she looked at Zhan Weiyang again, “Qing gege will go with you, okay?”

       Zhan Weiyang stole a glance at Pei Qing again and then nodded to Grandma.

       Grandma felt a little relieved. She said to Pei Qing, “Why don’t you drive there? Otherwise, it’ll be difficult to bring the flower pots back.”

       Pei Qing said, “I understand.”

       When they went out, Grandma carried the small blanket she put on her legs to the door and asked Zhan Weiyang, “How many flower pots does Yangyang want to buy?”

       Zhan Weiyang thought for a while and said, “One is enough.”

       Grandma said, “Just plant one flower pot?”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded, “Yes.”

       Grandma said with a smile, “Okay, then go quickly.”

       Pei Qing drove the car out of the garage, Zhan Weiyang got into the passenger seat, stretched out his hand to fasten the seat belt, and then took a look at Pei Qing.

       “To the flower market?” Pei Qing asked him.

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Yeah.”

       Pei Qing was not familiar with the road, so he took out his mobile phone to search for flower markets and found one. Then he handed the phone screen to Zhan Weiyang and asked him, “Going here?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Yeah.” When Pei Qing put the phone back and started the car, he whispered again, “Thank you, Qing ge.”

       Pei Qing drove the car forward slowly and said, “No need to thank me, but—” He originally wanted to say that Zhan Weiyang didn’t need to buy flower pots, but he couldn’t say it, so he stopped.

       Zhan Weiyang looked at him curiously, “What?”

       Pei Qing said, “Nothing.”

       Zhan Weiyang struggled secretly for a while and said to Pei Qing, “I’m sorry.”

       Pei Qing looked at him and said, “Why are you saying sorry?”

       Zhan Weiyang wanted to say, ‘My roots have reached you.’ Then he remembered that he was dreaming, but he still felt a little guilty. In the end, he just said, “Nothing.”

       Pei Qing noticed that Zhan Weiyang was a little nervous, so he stayed silent and concentrated on driving without saying anything else.

       The flower market was located on the outskirts of the city, about forty minutes drive from their home. Upon arrival, Pei Qing discovered it was a massive flower market with nearly ten large warehouses neatly arranged, each filled with a variety of potted plants and flowers.

       It was also Zhan Weiyang’s first time to come here. After entering the warehouse, he opened his mouth in surprise.

       Pei Qing put the car keys into the pocket of his jacket and said to Zhan Weiyang, “Let’s have a look around.”

       Most of the merchants here sell wholesale. They walked along a passage and saw neat potted flowers and green plants on both sides. The scenery was almost spectacular.

       Zhan Weiyang was stunned. He took two steps and stopped in front of a shop selling succulents.

       Pei Qing saw the pot of Yulu1 that Zhan Weiyang was looking at. It was translucent and beautiful. So he casually asked about the price.

       The shop owner then brought out a box containing several dozen small pots of succulents and offered to sell them all for a hundred yuan.

       Zhan Weiyang said, “All of them?”

       The owner nodded, “Yes, handsome boy.”

       Zhan Weiyang looked at Pei Qing.

       Pei Qing asked him, “Do you want it?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Isn’t it too much?”

       Pei Qing said, “It’s a bit too much, and you can’t take care of it.”

       Zhan Weiyang squatted down and stared at the various succulents in front of him, lost in thought. Later, he put his hands to his mouth, whispered a few words to those beautiful plants in a low voice, and then stood up and said to Pei Qing, “Don’t want it, let’s go.”

       Pei Qing walked forward with him and asked him, “What did you just say?”

       Zhan Weiyang turned around and said, “I said I couldn’t take care of them in the future, so I decided not to take them back. I’m still waiting for someone to water me.”

       Pei Qing felt speechless for a moment.

       They continued to walk forward, not wanting to buy flower pots immediately. It was the first time they visited such a large flower market, and even Pei Qing became somewhat interested. They browsed through several warehouses together, admiring the variety of flowers and plants inside.

       When passing in front of a store selling large potted plants, Zhan Weiyang suddenly stopped.

       Pei Qing was walking in front but realised that Zhan Weiyang had not followed, so he stopped to look at him and found that he was stunned in front of a money tree2.

       “What?” Pei Qing came back to him and asked.

       Zhan Weiyang didn’t respond, still staring at the money tree in a daze. After a while, he grabbed Pei Qing’s arm and asked, “Do you think that tree looks good?”

       Pei Qing followed his gaze and said, “Are you talking about that money tree?”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded shyly.

       Pei Qing said, “It’s quite beautiful.”

       Zhan Weiyang was immediately filled with joy. He grabbed Pei Qing’s arm and said a little shyly, “Yeah, I think it looks good too.” After saying that, he let go of his hand and walked forward briskly.

Chapter 57 – Chinese Bellflower (3) [Grand Finale]

       Qin Yun had never thought about having children in the past nearly 30 years. He had always stayed on the front line of the battlefield and had no idea whether he was safe or not. Even after retiring, it was not something he could think about immediately. Over the years, his mindset was geared towards ensuring his own well-being, with little thought given to the prospect of offspring and descendants.

       “If you want to give birth, of course you can.” Chris was very used to His Royal Highness the Queen often coming to bother him. He did his own experiments and left Qin Yun aside without feeling burdened, “With technology so advanced now, creating an artificial womb for you is possible.”

       Qin Yun: “…Why does it have to be me?”

       Chris glanced at him disdainfully, “I don’t have a problem if you can convince His Majesty to get a big belly.”

       “…” Qin Yun sighed, “I’m not ready to be a father yet.”

       Chris: “It has always been the dream of many men to carry on the family line and have children and grandchildren. His Majesty is still very considerate and has considered it for you.”

       Qin Yun frowned, “He hasn’t considered about it for himself?”

       “His Majesty?” Chris recalled, “When he first came of age, he secretly registered with the ‘Human Reproduction Program’ Bureau to never have offspring. However, such registration is not absolute for a lifetime, and it can be undone if he wishes.”

       Qin Yun was silent. He looked at the sunlight shining into the laboratory at noon. He thought for a while and then slowly said, “He doesn’t want the God-level genes to continue reproducing any longer, and he won’t have any offspring of his own.”

       Chris shrugged, “Well, that’s him, not you.”

       Qin Yun smiled and raised his eyebrows, “Have you forgotten that I am also a god-level?”

       Chris showed a surprised expression, and he was still holding the glass vial in his hand, which looked a little comical.

       “As long as it’s what he desires, I’ll help him make it happen,” Qin Yun said earnestly. “This is my way of loving him.”


       While Moschery was recuperating, Lin Dongliang took over all government affairs as Prime Minister. Although Skarter was dissatisfied, there was nothing he could do. The military department needed to be reorganised and managed. As Qin Yun said, the development of the new regime was lengthy, slow, and complex, and countless people would eventually embark on this path.

       Genes would no longer be the standard for judging humans. Whether they are low-level guides, sentinels or even ordinary people, they all have their own rights and obligations.

       “To contribute to the Empire is to achieve a better self.” Lin Dongliang said this in his post-war speech, “In this way, our lives will have more meaning.”

       Arthur and Shen Zhuofan were finally able to accomplish their wish to travel and get married, but because they had other important things to do, their honeymoon felt like a business trip.

       Olympus had persecuted Eta Star for a long time, and the avian race faced the threat of almost extinction. Shen Zhuofan brought over the childbirth plan that Chris had studied, determined to improve the awkward situation of male reproduction among the avian people. As a result, the title ‘Goddess of Fertility’ somehow ended up being associated with Shen Zhuofan.

       “You think I do?” Shen Zhuofan rubbed his neck with a headache, “His Majesty doesn’t go to work, so we have to do everything. I can’t even enjoy a honeymoon.”

       Lin Dongliang smiled bitterly, “Stop complaining. I’m in the same boat.”

       Shen Zhuofan breathed out, “Fortunately, Little Canon Girl is finally willing to get married. If not, none of us would be able to enjoy our vacation.”

       Lin Dongliang had a look of ‘brother, we’re in this together’. With Tristana’s willingness to marry, aside from Chen Xiao being delighted, the whole group was happy. The Empire’s only female general had finally agreed to marry. Of course, they had to thoroughly enjoy the benefits provided by the Emperor. One of the dowry items was that Chen Xiao had to tame a giant Titan as a pet…

       Chen Xiao couldn’t handle it alone, so he simply recruited Arthur and Skarter as strong men. The three of them went to the ‘Shura Gate’ a week ago.

       “Speaking of this.” Shen Zhuofan seemed to have thought of something and looked around, “Where are Qin Yun and Your Majesty?”


       G Star had rainy and hazy weather all year round, and the humid climate was very suitable for the growth of large amphibians. Moschery was riding on Zhongyan’s back, with one of his eyes wearing a black goggle, looking down expressionlessly.

       Qin Yun sat cross-legged next to the fire. He turned on the communication device, and Chen Xiao’s scowling face appeared.

       “When are you guys coming over!” The leader of the Star Thief was very anxious, “Let His Majesty lend us Zhongyan!”

       Qin Yun was helpless, “I told you. Tristana wants silver-ringed snakes, so we have to get a hundred of them first.”

       Chen Xiao was shocked, “What does she want a silver-ringed snake for?! To poison me on our wedding night?!”

       Qin Yun: “…”

       Zhongyan flew across the sky at high speed, and the clear roar of the dragon passed through the tree canopy, startling the birds. Moschery jumped down and threw the cage in his hand to the ground.

       He reached out his hand and turned the communication device around angrily.

       “Your woman’s wedding is more troublesome than mine.” Moschery said coldly, “Go teach her a lesson when you go back!”

       Chen Xiao pursed his lips and silently spat in his heart. Everyone knew that the Emperor spoiled his wife to death, so how could he criticise others…

       Qin Yun put the silver-ringed snake away and made an appointment with Chen Xiao. As soon as the communication device was turned off, Moschery leaned over.

       “…” Qin Yun was pressed on the back of his head, and his lips hurt from the kiss.

       Moschery opened his only remaining eye calmly, tilted his head and hugged Qin Yun’s waist.

       Qin Yun said vaguely, “…Want to freshen up?”

       Moschery’s forehead twitched, “Can’t you just shut up when we’re kissing?!”

       Qin Yun: “…”

       Moschery pinched his chin and said angrily, “How do you want me to stick my tongue in?! Open your mouth!”


       The two of them were piloting Qin Yun’s luxurious gold royal aircraft covered with rhilairones. In a rare act of mercy, Moschery didn’t take Zhongyan into the realm of consciousness so that the dragon could fly with him.

       “It’s like walking a dragon in space…” Qin Yun sighed.

       The gleaming aircraft was like an attractive ‘meat bone’, and the dragon flew happily around it. Fortunately, it was still somewhat conscious and did not breathe fire excitedly.

       Moschery’s expression looked unpleasant all the way. He ignored this stupid dragon’s request to take pictures several times and said cruelly, “Don’t even think about it, you can’t be seen even if I take a picture of you.”

       Zhongyan: “…QAQ”


       After half a year, they went back to ‘Shura Gate’, which had become one of the Empire’s strongholds, and the nearest F Star was home to the giant Titan that Tristana wanted. It was a very cute-looking but huge creature with high combat power and intelligence that could be domesticated.

       Chen Xiao was in even more of a mess than he’d seen in the communicator, and Arthur and Skarter weren’t much better, with Lord Duke’s red hair turned into a hedgehog.

       “We’ve alerted a large Titan lair,” Skarter said wearily. They had been squatting there for almost half a month. If they didn’t capture a Titan soon, Chen Xiao wouldn’t be the only one on the verge of a breakdown.

       Arthur sneered, “I told you not to let that stupid Haast Hawk go as bait. Titans get excited when they see something that can fly. It’s not enough to lure a bunch of them, and it actually lured a lair of them.”

       Qin Yun was embarrassed, “How many are there in total?”

       Chen Xiao clicked on the map, “6… If we catch them all, we can get one each.”

       Arthur looked at him with disdain, “Only Tristana would want such a thing to keep for fun. Zhuofan already has a cat.”

       Skarter said proudly, “It’s enough for the Prime Minister to have me.”

       Moschery didn’t want to pay attention to these wife slaves at all. He observed the surroundings of the lair, found a high point and installed a triangle digital net. When he descended, he noticed that apart from Qin Yun, the other three were still discussing what their wives liked.


       “I can’t help it; Little Canon Girl likes this kind of thing.” Chen Xiao had a helpless look on his face but felt very proud on the inside, “It has to be cute, not too weak, and smart, so it will have dignity when you take it out.”

       Arthur spat at him, “A titan this big, and you bring it out to show me? You want it to crash the gate once a day?”

       Skarter: “Well, Lin Dongliang likes it very much, but he is busy, and he definitely doesn’t have time to take care of it.” After saying that, he thought of something and turned to ask Qin Yun, “When will Your Majesty recover and take back your duties? Us family head also needs some rest.”

       Qin Yun didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Just when he was about to answer, he heard Moschery say coldly, “Lin Dongliang did a good job. It’s not like he was unwilling.”

       Skarter said with a grimace, “He is born to work hard, Your Majesty. It’s not like you don’t know; don’t cause any more trouble for him.”

       Moschery glanced at him, not sure if he was joking, and said coldly, “When he becomes president, he can give himself a holiday.”

       “??” Skarter didn’t understand for a moment, “Be what?!”

       Moschery was too lazy to answer. He signalled Zhongyan to hit the rock wall around the Titan’s lair and directed Arthur and Chen Xiao to stand on the control panel of the triangle digital net.


       Qin Yun called out Ishtar. He rode on the back of the unicorn and looked down at Moschery slightly, “What do you mean by waiting for Lin Dongliang to become president…?”

       “That’s what it means literally.” Moschery frowned, “Come down and don’t cause trouble. I’ll be the bait.”

       Qin Yun: “Then what should I do?”

       Moschery: “Sit and watch, cheering and saying, ‘Husband, you are awesome, I love you so so much’.”

       Qin Yun: “…”


       Skarter, Chen Xiao, and Arthur were standing by the triangular digital net in elevated positions. Moschery was riding on Ishtar’s back to serve as bait. Zhongyan had already weakened the surrounding walls of the lair with his impacts. Qin Yun was nervously staring at the lair’s entrance, and soon, the snow-white unicorn shot out like an arrow.

       Then, a thunderous sound shook the universe, and one of the youngest Titans rushed to the front, roaring and jumping into the triangle area. Moschery roared, “Cast the net!”

       Blue netting shot out from three high points simultaneously, and Arthur shouted, “Tightened it!”

       The digital net quickly tightened, binding the Titans tightly. The few Titans that had fallen behind had just arrived now. The heavy footsteps shook the surrounding rock walls. Zhongyan was still banging against them, but the rocks would not fall. Seeing the Titans was about to pounce on Ishtar, Qin Yun carried the high-energy cannon that he had put in his bag.

       “Zhongyan!” Qin Yun summoned the dragon while running. Zhongyan swooped down with a scream. It didn’t land, and the giant wings gathered up and lifted the guide onto its back.

       The power of the five Titans running was simply unimaginable. Qin Yun relied entirely on his feelings and fired the high-energy cannon without even standing still. Two of them were fired in a row. The powerful recoil knocked him off the dragon’s back.

       “Qin Yun!” Moschery said angrily. He ignored the Titan chasing behind him and flew directly towards Qin Yun. A Titan stretched out its hand in mid-air and grabbed Ishtar’s white feather. Moschery’s face was as dark as water as he pulled out the Dragon Scales on his back and chopped down with great force!

       The rock walls around the lair finally couldn’t bear any more and collapsed. Ishtar dodged the rolling stones and flew towards Qin Yun, who was still falling. Zhongyan spread his huge wings over the two of them, shielding them from the larger rocks.

       Seeing the ground approaching, Moschery jumped directly from the unicorn’s back. In the last moment, he embraced Qin Yun, swung the Dragon Scales into the nearest rock wall, and slid down just over two meters before barely stopping. However, Ishtar and Zhongyan weren’t as fortunate. The giant dragon, only managing to wrap its wings around the unicorn, crashed belly-up at the entrance of the Titan’s lair.


       Qin Yun looked at his dangling feet in shock. They were less than one meter above the ground. If Moschery hadn’t come, he might have fallen to the ground.

       The nearest Titan was trapped at the entrance by the Diginet, and the remaining five were blocked in the lair by shattered boulders.

       Zhongyan fluttered his wings and stood up. Ishtar licked and kissed the side of the dragon’s muzzle where it had been grazed by the boulder.

       “I almost lost my life by helping others get married.” Qin Yun said with a bitter smile. Moschery’s hand holding him was still shaking a little, and he opened his mouth without speaking.

       Qin Yun sighed, “Put me down.” He patted the Emperor’s hand, and Moschery looked down at him.

       “I was just thinking.” Moschery suddenly said, “If I can’t catch you, I’ll just fall down with you.”

       “…” Qin Yun said with a headache, “The monarchs cannot be buried together during their reign. Please promise me that you won’t entertain such thoughts.”

       Moschery didn’t say anything. He took out the Dragon Scale that was stuck in the rock wall and tied it behind his back, then turned around to close the net.

       Qin Yun chased after him and insisted, “Promise me first.”

       “Impossible.” Moschery said without looking back, “I have already written the abdication edict.”

       “Abdication…” Qin Yun reacted, “Edict what?!”

       Moschery suddenly turned his head, and Qin Yun almost hit his nose without stopping his forehead.

       “Abdication edict.” Moschery said word by word, “From now on, I will no longer be the Emperor of the Empire, and Lin Dongliang will take over the presidency. There will be no god level and no royal family; the two of us will become the most ordinary citizens.”

       Qin Yun murmured, “This is good…not right!” He said frantically, “Why are you thinking like this all of a sudden?!”

       Moschery’s expression was calm, but there was a smile in his eyes, “I have thought so for a long time.” He stretched out his hand, twirled the ends of Qin Yun’s hair with his fingertips, gently pulled and bit his lip.

       “I heard it all from Chris.” Moschery whispered against Qin Yun’s lips, “I know what you gave up for me, a family with intact lineage… You love me in your own way.”

       Qin Yun touched Moschery’s face with trembling hands. He kissed the tip of the Emperor’s nose and found that he was actually crying.

       “You’re ugly when you cry.” Moschery kissed his cheek, “Power means nothing to me anymore, and neither does the seat of Emperor.”

       Moschery said faintly, “Nothing can separate us from now on, not even death.”

       “…Shut up.” Qin Yun said sullenly, “Your only shortcoming is that your mouth is too sweet, you know.”

       Moschery chuckled softly. He picked up Qin Yun and pressed the back of his head, kissing him delicately.


       Chen Xiao finally caught the Titan he had longed for and couldn’t wait a second to go back to marry his wife. The five of them, covered in mud and looking miserable, hurried back to the empire. Skarter sent a message to Lin Dongliang, asking the soon-to-be bride to get ready.

       Fortunately, there was a bathroom in Moschery’s royal aircraft. However, after Chen Xiao finished showering, there’s no time for anyone else to wash up.


       So when everyone arrived at the wedding venue, except for the groom who looked somewhat presentable, all the other people were utterly unfit to be seen.

       Shen Zhuofan frantically rubbed the mud off Arthur’s boots, feeling so rushed that he almost fainted, “Tristana is going to kill us for sure…”

       Arthur stubbornly said, “We tried our best to help her prepare the dowry. What else does she want? What are you afraid of? With Chen Xiao leading the way, we might as well not go.”

       Shen Zhuofan was holding the brush in a funny manner. Arthur’s ferocious lion was still rubbing against him, and the tiger cat was also pulling its claws and trying to climb onto his back.

       “I’m not going.” Arthur clicked his tongue. He hugged Shen Zhuofan from behind and rested his chin on the opposite shoulder, “Let’s just sleep at home and have a baby together.”

       Shen Zhuofan couldn’t bear it anymore and threw the brush at the Lord Duke’s face.


       Lin Dongliang and Skarter were the first to get ready. The Prime Minister had to tie Skarter’s tie in a hurry, and the latter rubbed Lin Dongliang’s forehead mischievously.

       “Don’t move.” Lin Dongliang pushed a few times, “It will be done soon.”

       Skarter looked down at the other person and tied a Windsor knot carefully, “Will you give the wedding speech later?”

       Lin Dongliang nodded, and Skarter said angrily, “Then what does the Emperor do?”

       “Your Majesty also has something to say.” Lin Dongliang patted Skarter’s chest, “The marriage of the first female general will be broadcast live across the country. What I said was just the official statement. His Majesty, as the royal family member, must make a statement.”

       Skarter raised his eyebrows, “If the Emperor comes out to speak, doesn’t that mean he’s in good health? Won’t you be less busy from now on?”

       Lin Dongliang, “Logically speaking, it should be like this.” He hesitated for a moment and then said, “But I always have this bad feeling.”

       “The whole universe is watching His Majesty. He can’t avoid it.” Skarter didn’t think much about it, “Unless he doesn’t want to be the emperor anymore.”

       Lin Dongliang’s eyelids twitched, “Don’t talk nonsense.”

       Skarter laughed, “Haha, it’s not possible.”

       “…” The two looked at each other and fell silent…


       Tristana had put on her wedding dress and was combing her hair. Her skirt almost covered the entire bed, and it felt difficult to drag it when she walked. The Titan captured by Chen Xiao had been locked up in the yard. Titan is a creature that respects the strong. Whoever caught it would be acknowledged as its master, so even if it went to a strange place, it would still eat and drink well and treat it as its own home completely.

       Qin Yun was asked to play the role of the bride’s ‘father’. Tristana covered her head with white gauze and stretched out her hand to hold Qin Yun’s stretched-out arm.

       “What should I do?” the female general whispered, “I’m so nervous!”

       Qin Yun could only use his own experience to comfort her, “It’s okay, don’t be nervous, just stand there for a while, and it will be over.”

       Tristana: “No one speaks when you get married, so you just stand for a while. When I get married, His Majesty and Lin Dongliang will have to speak. How long do you have to stand?”

       “…” Qin Yun touched his nose.

       Tristana said gloomily, “Besides, Lin Dongliang is good at writing reports. I used to copy his papers; they were always lengthy, and even the professors were too lazy to read them.”

       Qin Yun: “…”

       Tristana sighed, “I finally married this pervert Chen Xiao, who has been spying on me since I was 12 years old. He must be moved to tears now.”

       Qin Yun carefully looked under the terrace and found that Chen Xiao seemed to be really crying…

       Tristana winked triumphantly, “Told you so.”


       Lin Dongliang lived up to expectations. The wedding congratulatory speech turned out to be a lengthy 30-chapter paper. He covered everything from Tristana’s birth, and even Chen Xiao’s pursuit of the bride since she was 12 years old was also vividly described. Now, the whole world knows that the leader of the Star Thief was a pervert who liked loli…

       Moschery shook Qin Yun’s hand before taking the stage. The scarlet cape on his shoulders almost reached the ground, and his back was tall and broad.

       “Happy wedding.” His Majesty the Emperor only said these four words.

       Tristana said excitedly, “I can finally throw the bouquet!”

       Moschery said expressionlessly, “No need to throw away the bouquet. Just throw this one.”

       “…” Tristana looked down at the abdication edict that the emperor forced into her hand.

       Lin Dongliang had already stood up. He didn’t know what was going on yet and smiled as he reached out, ready to take it.

       Moschery took Tristana’s bouquet and ignored Lin Dongliang’s expression behind him when he received the abdication edict. He casually tore off his cloak and tossed it high in the air. The flowers fell into his arms, and starlight adorned his shoulders.


       Qin Yun looked at Moschery running towards him, laughed and opened his arms—


I would like to be a lighthouse, pointing the way for you, soothing the trauma, loneliness and stormy seas.

Your life belongs to me, and my soul will be with you.

Chapter 55 – (Side Story) Picking Up a Dog

       Long Xing picked up a stray dog ​​when he was getting off work that day.

       When he saw the dog, it was huddled under a car in front of him, its fur dirty and messy, and it looked pitiful.

       Long Xing was afraid that it would be run over by the wheels when the car started, so he stretched out his hand to summon it out.

       The dog raised its head and glanced at Long Xing, then slowly got up and walked to him. It looked like it had been injured or had lost its vitality due to age. However, Long Xing couldn’t clearly identify it.

       Long Xing’s original intention was just to call it out, but the dog kept following Long Xing and refused to leave.

       It followed Long Xing back to the school dormitory where Long Xing lived.

       Oh, by the way, because Bu Hui moved out from the old dormitory of Forensic Medicine College to rent a house to live with his girlfriend, Xia Hongshen took advantage of his relationship to rent one of the two vacant dormitories to Feng Junyuan, and the other one was rented to Long Xing.

       The dog kept following Long Xing, but Long Xing couldn’t bear to get rid of it.

       Finally, when he returned to the second floor of the dormitory, the dog was still walking slowly behind him.

       When Long Xing came back, Song Jun and Feng Junyuan were watching movies in front of the computer. Long Xing put the lunch box he bought on Song Jun’s computer table and asked, “Where is Teacher Xia?”

       Song Jun turned to look at him and said, “Went to attend an academic conference with his tutor and won’t be back until a few days later.”

       “Oh,” Long Xing responded, “Let’s eat first.”

       At this time, both Song Jun and Feng Junyuan noticed the dirty stray dog following Long Xing and asked, “Where did it come from?”

       Long Xing was a little troubled, “It’s a stray dog. It’s been following me back.”

       Feng Junyuan took one look and said, “It’s so dirty. Do you want to keep it?”

       Song Jun whispered, “Senior brother may not agree.”

       Long Xing lowered his head to look at the dog, and the dog looked up at him pitifully. In the end, Long Xing couldn’t bear it. He took his lunch box, fed half of it to the dog, and said, “Let’s wait until Teacher Xia comes back.”

       After dinner, Song Jun helped him give the dog a bath.

       While washing, Song Jun said, “Do I need to take it to a pet shop for injection? I’m afraid it has some disease.”

       Long Xing seemed to think it didn’t matter, “It doesn’t matter, we shouldn’t be able to get rabies.”

       Song Jun looked at him and said, “True.”

       When the two of them finished bathing the dog, Long Xing discovered that the dog’s fur was pure white. It was so dirty just now that it was impossible to tell.

       Song Jun looked at the dog in confusion, “What breed is this? I can’t tell?”

       Long Xing also looked at it and said, “Huskies, right? Are there pure white huskies?”

       Feng Junyuan walked into the water room with a cup of mouthwash. He heard two people talking, so he also took a look at the dog and said, “Maybe it had albinism.”

       Given Feng Junyuan’s status as a doctor, both Long Xing and Song Jun were then convinced by him.

       Long Xing used a towel to wipe the water off the dog’s body. As he wiped it, he said, “Let me give you a name. Can we call it Erbao?”

       Not sure if Erbao understood, it shook its head, splashing water all over Long Xing’s face.

       When going to bed that night, Song Jun helped Long Xing find a large cardboard box, opened it and stuffed some unnecessary towels and sheets inside, temporarily making a place for Erbao.

       Erbao’s place was placed in Long Xing’s room. The room Long Xing lived in now was the same room that Bu Hui used to live in. It still had a simple layout of a small bed, desk, and wardrobe, and the dog kennel could only be placed next to the bed.

       Long Xing was lying on the bed and could touch Erbao’s head with his hand.

       Erbao was curled up in its kennel. Long Xing stretched out his hand to touch its head, and it would raise its head slightly and lick Long Xing’s fingers.

       Long Xing closed his eyes and fell asleep quickly.

       That night, he kept dreaming, and he always dreamed that something heavy was pressing on him, and he could hardly breathe. He repeated this all night long. When he woke up the next morning, he only felt a soreness in his back.

       When Long Xing opened his eyes, he saw Erbao lying beside the bed, looking at him.

       He reached out and rubbed Erbao’s head.

       Erbao stretched out his head and rubbed against his chest.

       Long Xing had to go to work in the morning, so he got up from the bed and dragged his tired body to the water room to wash up.

       Song Jun saw him and asked, “Why are you so haggard?”

       Long Xing rubbed his eyes and said, “Am I?”

       Song Jun touched his head, “Did Erbao disturb you to sleep?”

       Long Xing shook his head, “No, I just didn’t sleep very well. It’s nothing.”

       Because he had to go to work during the day, Long Xing asked Song Jun to help him find time to come back and feed the dog.

       At noon, Song Jun went to buy a bag of dog food and came back. He opened the door of Long Xing’s room and saw Erbao sleeping in its space. He didn’t move when he heard him come in.

       Song Jun poured the dog food into the bowl, put it near Erbao’s mouth, and then walked out gently.

       But until Long Xing came home from work in the afternoon, Erbao didn’t touch the dog food in his mouth. He didn’t seem to like eating dog food.

       Long Xing felt very tired. After he came back, he lay down on the bed and didn’t want to move.

       Unexpectedly, Erbao jumped on the bed, lay on Long Xing’s body, and licked Long Xing’s ears.

       Long Xing felt itchy and turned his head away with a smile.

       Erbao could be considered a large dog. With its size, it pressed down on Long Xing, making it impossible for him to move. It licked Long Xing’s ears for a while, then lowered its head to lick Long Xing’s collarbone.

       Long Xing struggled for a while but failed to break free and fell asleep with his eyes closed.

       After dinner, Long Xing took Erbao for a walk in the school. It was obviously a stray dog ​​that had been picked up from outside yesterday, but he didn’t expect that it would be surprisingly well-behaved and keep following Long Xing’s feet. Even when a girl teased it with food, it wouldn’t run away.

       He just picked up Erbao and raised him for several days. His skin became smoother and smoother, while Long Xing became more and more lethargic.

       One night, Long Xing took it out for a walk. Long Xing sat on a bench next to the small pond in the school and fell asleep after sitting for a while.

       Erbao, who was sitting next to his legs, seemed to notice that he was asleep, so he jumped up on the bench, lay down next to him, and put his head on his lap.

       After walking back, when Long Xing walked into the door of the first floor of the dormitory, Erbao suddenly stopped and refused to leave.

       Long Xing was a little strange and looked back at it, “What’s wrong?”

       Erbao raised his head and looked ahead warily.

       Then, Long Xing heard footsteps coming down the stairs. He turned around and saw that the person slowly coming down the second floor turned out to be Xia Hongshen.

       “Teacher Xia!” Long Xing was very happy to see Xia Hongshen.

       Xia Hongshen didn’t look at him but kept staring at Erbao at Long Xing’s feet.

       Long Xing felt a little strange and looked back at Erbao. Thinking that Xia Hongshen might have some hostility towards dogs, he explained, “I picked up Erbao. He is a stray dog.”

       As soon as he finished speaking, Xia Hongshen turned into a black shadow and rushed towards Erbao, but Erbao suddenly retreated and disappeared from Long Xing’s face without any intention of fighting with Xia Hongshen.

       Long Xing was stunned.

       However, Xia Hongshen had transformed back into his human form and stood beside him, saying, “You idiot, your spiritual power has almost been sucked out.”

       Long Xing suddenly lost consciousness, turned into a silver whip, and fell into Xia Hongshen’s hand.

       Xia Hongshen brought Long Xing Whip back and put it on the bed. Song Jun and Feng Junyuan stood beside it, both of them were a little embarrassed because none of them realised that Erbao turned out to be a demon and let him stay beside Long Xing. So long.

       Song Jun asked, “What on earth is that? I can’t see what it was?”

       Xia Hongshen’s eyes fell on the Dragon Tip Whip and said, “It’s not an ordinary demon. I don’t know where it came from and what its purpose is.”

       Song Jun thought for a while and said, “It’s probably because of Long Xing’s spiritual power.”

       Xia Hongshen reached out and picked up the Dragon Tip Whip, handed it to Feng Junyuan, and said, “Send Long Xing to Yun Po. There is enough spiritual power on the mountain so that he can return to his human form as soon as possible.”

       Feng Junyuan took it and said, “I have to go to work.”

       Xia Hongshen said, “Am I not going to work?”

       Feng Junyuan was not very happy, “You are obviously more relaxed than me, okay? I have to work the night shift tomorrow!”

       Song Jun said softly, “I also have to go to work…”

       Xia Hongshen reached out and took the Dragon Tip Whip back, “Call Yun Po and ask him to come over.”

       Two days later, Yun Po appeared in Song Jun’s dormitory building.

       Xia Hongshen handed the Dragon Tip Whip into his hand, “Please help me take Long Xing back to Yun Qingshan Hongyin Temple and wait for him to absorb spiritual energy and return to his human form as soon as possible.”

       Yun Po took the Dragon Tip Whip, waved it excitedly in his hand, and said, “You gave it to me, but I won’t give it back to you.”

       Xia Hongshen didn’t care, “Long Xing will come back on his own.”

       Yun Po suddenly lost interest and asked Xia Hongshen, “How did it get like this?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “Its spiritual power was absorbed by a demon.”


       Xia Hongshen raised his head and looked out the window, “Something got in.”

       Yun Po left with the Dragon Tip Whip that day.

       At night, Song Jun sat on Xia Hongshen’s bed, playing games on his laptop.

       Xia Hongshen rummaged through boxes and cabinets to find something.

       Song Jun was a little strange, “What are you looking for?”

       Xia Hongshen didn’t say anything. He found cat food from the cabinet, grabbed a handful and put it in his mouth. He chewed it for a while and felt something was wrong, so he quickly spit it out. After looking carefully at the packaging bag, he realised that it was not cat food at all, but dog food.

       Seeing this, Song Jun stood up, grabbed the bag, and said, “I bought this for Erbao two days ago.”

       Xia Hongshen was not happy when he heard the word Erbao, and he was even more unhappy when there was no cat food. He looked gloomily and asked, “Where’s mine?”

       Song Jun said, “You have finished it all, and I haven’t had time to buy another yet.”

       As soon as he finished speaking, he was pressed onto the bed by Xia Hongshen, and he couldn’t say the next words.

       On the same night, Yun Po drove back to Hongyin Temple overnight, and sitting with him in the passenger seat was Wan Mingguang. Wan Mingguang devoted himself to practising Buddhism at Hongyin Temple. Yun Po saw that he was now dedicated to doing good, so he let his soul attach to his Buddhist beads and took him down the mountain to catch ghosts, eliminate demons, and do good deeds to accumulate virtue.

       Wan Mingguang held the Dragon Tip Whip in his hand and asked doubtfully, “What kind of powerful demon do you think it could be, keeping Chunjun and others in the dark?”

       Yun Po drove the car and responded casually, “Who knows?”

       When he finished speaking, Wan Mingguang suddenly exclaimed. It turned out that he saw a white figure running towards their car outside the car window.

       They were driving on a highway, and on this kind of highway, what kind of monster could catch up with the speed of a car?

The author has something to say:
As a side story, when I first started writing this piece, I revisited a heartwarming work that I really enjoyed, with its atmosphere of an entire extended family being together. That’s where the inspiration for this side story came from.

Chapter 25

       Because it was a Saturday that was hard to come by, Zhan Weiyang did not study by himself in the evening. Instead, he took a shower early and stayed in Pei Qing’s room playing mobile games with Chen Youyou.

       Pei Qing was reading next to him, and the two of them didn’t interfere with each other.

       When Pei Qing was about to go to bed, Zhan Weiyang hurriedly said goodbye to Chen Youyou, put his cell phone on the bedside table, and lay down on his own half of the bed.

       He closed his eyes and waited until Pei Qing turned off the desk lamp. Just when he was about to fall asleep, he heard the female voice suddenly ringing in the air, “The relationship state has been negatively improved, and 2 points have been deducted. The user’s score today: 38 points.”

       Zhan Weiyang was so frightened that his scalp was numb and he opened his eyes.

       The room was dark. He was lying on his back and could only vaguely see the outline of the overhead light on the ceiling. He rubbed his fingers uneasily and turned furtively to look at Pei Qing. He saw Pei Qing lying motionless on his side, breathing very shallowly. He didn’t know if he was already asleep or not.

       Zhan Weiyang closed his eyes again but found that his mood could not be calmed down. He recalled how he and Chen Youyou found someone to stop Xie Ling today. Although things did not go smoothly according to his original plan, the relationship between him and Xie Ling should not be negatively affected. Moreover, they also sent Chen Youyou to the hospital together. Even if they didn’t give him points, they shouldn’t reduced his points.

       He couldn’t figure it out, and his mind, which was not very clear to begin with, became even more confused.

       Zhan Weiyang completely lost his sleepiness. He waited for a while and leaned closer to Pei Qing to listen to his breathing. He felt that Pei Qing must have fallen asleep, so he gently lifted the quilt and got out of bed, pulling on his slippers and walking towards the room’s door.

       He was very careful when he opened the door. He turned the door handle and made a slight noise. He immediately turned back to look at Pei Qing. When he saw that the figure on the bed was still lying quietly without any movement, he walked out with confidence.

       Zhan Weiyang stood in the corridor and first looked back in the direction of Zhan Pengcheng’s room. The door was still closed. He walked over and held the handle. He put his face against the door and stood quietly for a while. He felt that he missed his father. Then he turned around and walked to the other end of the corridor.

       He didn’t turn on the lights all the way, and the corridor was dimly lit. Everything could only be seen as a vague outline. When passing the stairs, Zhan Weiyang turned his head and took a look. He always felt that there was something in the shadow, and he immediately trotted nervously all the way until he came to the door leading to the balcony at the end opened the door lock from the inside and walked out.

       The balcony was much brighter than the house inside. Not far ahead were the street lights in the community and the cars passing in front of their house. The bright car lights flash past Zhan Weiyang’s face.

       Actually, Pei Qing was not asleep either. He felt it when Zhan Weiyang came close to him and listened to his breathing.

       Later Pei Qing heard Zhan Weiyang get up and leave the room.

       He didn’t know where Zhan Weiyang went, but he just felt strange. He sat up from the bed and heard Zhan Weiyang’s footsteps in the corridor, and then he heard the sound of him opening and locking the door.

       Pei Qing got out of bed and followed him out. When he came to the corridor, he saw the door leading to the balcony at the end opened, and a cool breeze blew in from the outside.

       Pei Qing walked over gently and saw Zhan Weiyang, with his back to the door, standing straight on the edge of the balcony in the open space between two pots of plants. This open space had been vacated by Zhan Weiyang himself.

       At that moment, Pei Qing thought Zhan Weiyang was sleepwalking, and he didn’t even dare to make a sound to disturb him.

       But in fact, Zhan Weiyang was not sleepwalking. He was just staring outside the balcony in a daze at the fountain in the middle of the neighbourhood’s garden. There was a circle of yellow lights next to the fountain, which would stay on all night and would not be turned off until dawn. Usually, there were always people playing by the fountain, but only in the dead of night when everything was quiet and no one could be seen.

       Zhan Weiyang felt useless, as if no matter what he did, he could not increase his score, but could only watch it decrease day by day until it reached zero on the last day.

       He had already found a seat for himself. This was the place with the best view on the balcony. It faced both the fountain in the neighbourhood and the balcony door. He could see people playing outside, as well as his father and Pei Qing passing through the corridor.

       If he ended up turning into a plant, he would have put himself here.

       But Zhan Weiyang also felt a little melancholy no matter what. Pei Qing would probably not allow him to sleep on his bed anymore, because then his roots would fall off and soil Pei Qing’s bed.

       Zhan Weiyang sighed softly.

       At this time, Pei Qing walked up behind him and called out softly, “Zhan Weiyang?”

       Zhan Weiyang didn’t hear Pei Qing’s footsteps and was really startled. He turned around quickly and said with a pale face, “Qing ge?”

       Only then did Pei Qing confirm that he was not sleepwalking, so he asked, “Why don’t you sleep?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “I came over to take a look.”

       “What are you looking at?” Pei Qing had already walked to his side. He looked in the direction of his gaze and saw the softly lit fountain. He also found two swings side by side next to the fountain.

       Zhan Weiyang said to him, “Look at my spot.”

       “What?” Pei Qing turned her head and lowered her gaze to look at him.

       Zhan Weiyang and Pei Qing stood side by side, pointing to the fountain, “Look, you can see the most beautiful part of the community from here.”

       Pei Qing hummed and said, “So?”

       Zhan Weiyang did not continue to answer him but frowned in confusion. After a while, he stood up on tiptoes and tried to get closer to Pei Qing’s ear, and he said to Pei Qing almost in a breathy voice, “My points are almost all gone.”

       It took Pei Qing two or three seconds to realise what Zhan Weiyang meant. In fact, he had almost forgotten what Zhan Weiyang said about point deduction. At that time, he only thought it was nonsense without meaning.

       But now Zhan Weiyang was very serious and said in Pei Qing’s ear, “After that I will stay here. You must remember to water me.”

       Pei Qing was silent for a while and asked, “Does it mean that you will turn into a plant after your points are deducted?”

       Zhan Weiyang looked at him and nodded.

       Pei Qing said, “But people will not turn into plants.”

       Zhan Weiyang looked at him with a puzzled expression.

       Pei Qing continued, “Those are two different creatures and will not change to each other.”

       Zhan Weiyang was confused and couldn’t figure it out after thinking for a long time.

       The cool wind kept blowing from outside, and Zhan Weiyang suddenly sneezed twice. He sniffed and looked at Pei Qing.

       Pei Qing said, “It’s too late. Let’s go back to sleep first.”

       Zhan Weiyang wanted to speak, but couldn’t help sneezing again.

       This time Pei Qing directly grabbed his wrist, and when he touched Zhan Weiyang’s hand, he realised that his palm was cold, so he couldn’t help but push up the sleeve of his pyjamas and touch Zhan Weiyang’s arm and found that the skin was also very cold.

       “Go to sleep,” Pei Qing said, using some force to pull Zhan Weiyang to the corridor, locking the balcony door. Then, he continued to hold his wrist and lead him to the room.

       Back in the room, Pei Qing asked Zhan Weiyang to lie down on the bed, pulled the quilt up to cover his neck, pressed the quilt tightly for him, and then returned to his side to sleep.

       Zhan Weiyang lay obediently for a while, then stretched out one hand from the quilt, groping towards Pei Qing next to him, and slipped in through the gap under his quilt.

       The cold hand touched Pei Qing’s arm.

       Pei Qing moved a little but did not push Zhan Weiyang away. He just said, “Still cold?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “En, it won’t be cold soon.”

       Pei Qing held Zhan Weiyang’s hand and said, “Go to sleep.”

       Zhan Weiyang didn’t know what was wrong with him, but when he felt Pei Qing’s warm palm, he suddenly couldn’t help but feel happy, so happy that he wanted to smile. But he didn’t want to be seen by Pei Qing. Even in the darkness, he still buried his face on the pillow, then carefully inserted five fingers between Pei Qing’s fingers, bent them over and held them tightly to prevent Pei Qing from shaking him off.

Chapter 56 – Chinese Bellflower (2)

       Tristana stood on the Crested Ibis and looked anxiously into the distance. After an unknown amount of time, a golden light finally appeared in the dark night sky.

       Ishtar’s huge white wings cut through the night like a sharp sword.

       “They’re back!” Tristana said excitedly. She couldn’t wait for the other party to get closer, so she drove the Crested Ibis to meet them, opened the hatch and received the two of them in.

       The oxygen was thin at high altitude, and Qin Yun was holding Moschery in a panic.

       “Call the doctor.” He gasped wearily, “Don’t mind me.”

       Tristana looked at the large area of ​​burns on his back with a pale face. Moschery’s dragon eye no longer resembled its original form. Qin Yun stretched out his guiding tendrils to repair the other party’s consciousness cloud. Zhongyan was even more seriously injured. Ishtar knelt next to the giant dragon, and was licking and kissing the other’s scarred giant wings.

       When the doctor arrived, Qin Yun had already finished tending. Sentinel had a terrifying recovery ability as long as they were given sufficient rest. Moschery closed his eyes, but Qin Yun knew that he was not asleep, their fingers were tightly intertwined.

       After the doctor cleaned the wound, he looked at Qin Yun with some difficulty and deliberated, “The wounds are too deep, and we don’t have the necessary technical conditions here. If we rush back now, perhaps there’s still a chance…”

       “No need.” Moschery suddenly interrupted, “I can’t leave Olympus in this situation.”

       Qin Yun still didn’t give up, “But…”

       Moschery looked at him, “Even if one eye is missing, it will have no impact on life.”

       Qin Yun frowned, and Zhongyan seemed to sense something. He stretched out his head and rested it on his guide’s leg. Like Moschery, it only had one intact eye.

       “…” Qin Yun sighed and had no choice but to comfort him, “I’ll make you a one-eye patch with rhinestones later.”

       The giant dragon was naturally very happy. Regardless of the wounds on its wings, it turned over and exposed its belly to Qin Yun. It circled its tail and wrapped the person in its arms.


       The explosions in Olympus did not stop for half an hour. According to Shen Zhuofan’s speculation, the floors of Olympus’ laboratories should be covered with explosives.

       “This is also their way of protecting their research results.” Chris regretfully said, “They should have done in-depth research on genetic evolution. It is a pity that it is gone like this.”

       “There is nothing regrettable.” Moschery’s expression was indifferent, “The evolutionary theory of Olympus will always go against the evolution of human beings. The consequences of eagerness for success by any means are not something we can afford.”

       The Land of Gods had lost its superficial prosperity and mystery, left behind nothing but a myriad of jokes with countless wounds.

       Although Lin Dongliang had the impulse to save the remaining laboratories, Moschery’s attitude was indifferent from beginning to end.

       “Human development is long, complicated and slow.” Qin Yun looked at Moschery with a smile, “There are no shortcuts in your heart, only balance and constraints.”

       Moschery did not retort. His injured eye had been simply treated and half of his face was wrapped in white gauze as he lowered his head to kiss Qin Yun innocently.

       “What is more complex than evolution is human emotion.” Moschery said in a low voice, “Adoration, hatred, devotion and reckless determination.”

       Qin Yun thought of Bixi. He tightened the Chinese bellflower badge around his neck and said nothing.

       Moschery continued, “We are all the same. We love others and we are be loved by others.”

       Qin Yun held his hand and put it to his lips, choking with tears as he said, “I love you.”

       Moschery turned his face sideways and looked at his guide tenderly with his perfect black eyes, “I love you too.”


       The regime of the Land of Gods has completely collapsed, and Moschery took over effortlessly. There was no opposition, no resistance. After losing the so-called protection of the god-level, the elders of Olympus were like scattered sand.

       The Emperor built a monument for Helu and Bixi on this ruined wall.

       Qin Yun stood in front of the monument and looked at the epitaph written by Moschery—’Love is silence and protection’.

       Moschery reached out and rubbed the back of Qin Yun’s head, “We can be buried here when we die in the future.”

       Qin Yun nodded, and he couldn’t help but ask, “Have you also thought about our epitaph?”

       Moschery didn’t respond. In his mind, epitaphs were meant for others to see, not for oneself.


       The Imperial Starship landed on a sand dune not far away. The exhaust gas sprayed out a huge white cloud. Moschery’s thick scarlet cloak was blown up and down, and the high-beam headlights hit the feet of the two.

       “Let’s go.” The Emperor stretched out his hand to Qin Yun, “To home.”


       The joy of triumph swept across the entire Empire before the Emperor returned. Skarter was not used to it when he was welcomed in the aisle. He couldn’t help complaining to Lin Dongliang, “Not going to be thrown any strange things, right… How come there are no flowers?”

       “…” Lin Dongliang, “How could there be such a thing…”

       The Royal Guards lined up in a cross formation and waited in front of the palace. Ba Jin couldn’t help crying when he saw Moschery.

       “You really don’t take care of yourself.” The old butler cried and complained, “You didn’t even rush back when you were injured.”

       His Majesty the Emperor looked impatient, but he restrained himself from losing his temper. However, Qin Yun, on the other hand, felt embarrassed. In a certain sense, failing to protect his Sentinel as a guide could be considered a dereliction of duty.

       “I don’t mean to blame you.” Ba Jin turned to comfort him, “His Majesty’s willfulness is a real headache. You have worked really hard.”

       Qin Yun: “…”


       Although there were still many follow-up matters waiting to be dealt with in Olympus, Moschery was forced to rest and recuperate, and Lin Dongliang took over the power. Olympus, which was bombed in a mess in a short period of time, could not have other developments and could only reluctantly serve as a fortress or war attraction; although dilapidated, still contained heavy historical significance.

       Qin Yun went to the cemetery of Bixi and Helu for the last time. He sowed Chinese Bellflower seeds nearby, but he didn’t know when they would sprout.

       The moist wind stirred the dust near the tombstone, and the morning sun slowly rose, its radiance piercing through the thick clouds and falling onto Qin Yun’s shoulders.


       Moschery’s dragon eye was not saved after all. When Qin Yun first learned the news, his mood almost hit rock bottom. He patted his cheek to cheer himself up.

       “Fortunately, the wound didn’t get infected.” Ba Jin comforted, “The doctor also said that it will not have much impact in future life, so don’t blame yourself too much.”

       Qin Yun nodded, took a deep breath and entered the room.

       Inside the room, Moschery was half lying on the bed, flipping through a book. He saw Qin Yun and raised an eyebrow. He then closed the page and reached out to him, “Come up and lie down with me.”

       Qin Yun walked over, took off his shoes and pants, climbed onto the bed and hugged Moschery’s waist.

       The Emperor lowered his head and kissed his forehead.

       “Does it still hurt?” Qin Yun muffled his face against the other’s waist and asked in a subdued tone.

       Moschery didn’t care much and said, “I don’t feel anything when I’m injured. The Dragon’s Eye is rather special. I can feel its changes, but it’s not well controlled.”

       Qin Yun raised his upper body. He stared at the gauze on half of the Emperor’s face for a long time and couldn’t help but reach out and touch it carefully.

       Moschery let him touch him for a long time, then said calmly, “Don’t show such an expression as if I’m going to die.”

       “…” Qin Yun frowned, “What are you talking about…”

       Moschery pinched his chin and shook it, “Don’t worry, I won’t let you become a widow… Things like the dragon eye, if it’s gone, then it’s gone.”

       Qin Yun’s complexion still wasn’t great. After thinking for a while, he seemed to have grasped what Moschery meant.

       “It’s like a mark, always reminding me of the things I once carried.” Moschery looked at Qin Yun expressionlessly, “But those things are no longer useful to me now.”

       In a stable social environment, the existence of so-called ‘gods’ would no longer be needed. Moschery finally achieved what he originally said was a stable land and centralised political power, and the god level has become the goal of legend.

       Moschery: “I need to say goodbye to the past.” His palm brushed against the dragon’s eye that no longer exists, “And this is my way of saying goodbye.”


       After about a month of recuperation, Moschery finally had his stitches removed. He replaced the original mask with a black eye patch, and Qin Yun put a rhinestone-encrusted one on Zhongyan.

       The giant dragon wore a sparkling eyepatch and was so beautiful that it wished it could go to heaven and earth. It posed like a pirate captain in front of the unicorn, staring at the other’s reaction with its remaining intact eye.

       Ishtar: “…”

       Zhongyan whistled softly, and it lay on the ground again, resting on its front paws, and slowly shook its tail.

       The snow-white unicorn took a few steps forward, gracefully bent its neck, and gently pressed its golden spiral horn against the dragon’s head.

       Qin Yun was obviously used to seeing this kind of scene, walked through the atrium and found Moschery in the garden. Several senators gathered around the Emperor, talking excitedly. The latter looked dismissive. Finally, he replied impatiently, “We won’t consider this kind of thing, so there’s no need to mention it again.”

       The older man was naturally unwilling to give up just like that, “Now that technology is so advanced, how will you know if you don’t try it? Both Your Majesty and His Highness are in good health and deeply in love. It couldn’t be more fitting. Don’t you want to…”

       Before he finished speaking, Moschery suddenly turned his head and looked at Qin Yun, who was standing motionless in the distance.

       Qin Yun: “??”

       Moschery waved to him.

       Qin Yun came over, “What are you talking about?”

       Seeing a smile on his face, the old man was about to speak but was interrupted by Moschery, “It’s nothing.” He glanced at several elders in a warning manner and pulled Qin Yun to his feet, “I’m tired; go have a rest.”

       “…” Qin Yun looked at Moschery with suspicion and fear. He had been tormented by him all night last night and had just regained his strength. His Majesty the Emperor actually had the nerve to tell him that he was tired again?!


       “Are you going to go back to bed again?” Qin Yun was taken back to the room with a depressed look on his face, “I don’t want to be unable to get out of bed all day…”

       “Shut up.” Moschery pushed the person into the quilt roughly, took off his shoes and lay next to Qin Yun, “I won’t touch you.”

       Qin Yun fell asleep nervously, feeling the Emperor’s rhythmic tapping on the blanket, giving him an inexplicable sensation of being comforted like a child…

       Just when he was about to fall asleep, Qin Yun suddenly heard Moschery asking nonchalantly in his ear, “Do you want a child?”

       “?!” Qin Yun cried out miserably, “Didn’t you say you won’t do it today?!!”

       Moschery: “…”

       Qin Yun blinked, with question marks on his face.

       Moschery tensed his chin and took a deep breath, “I meant it literally. What are you thinking?!”

       Qin Yun was shocked, “G-giving birth to a baby?”

       Moschery: “Hmm-mn.”

       “…” Qin Yun thought for a long time, “You or me?”

The author has something to say:
Although the idea of having a child was mentioned, it won’t happen. I’m just bringing it up…

Chapter 54 – (Main Story Finale) Thousand Years

       Coming out of the panda exhibit, Song Jun and Xia Hongshen met Long Xing and Xi Anling coming towards them.

       Song Jun became nervous reflexively when he saw Xi Anling and ran to buy her an ice cream.

       Xi Anling took it and took two bites, suddenly feeling that Song Jun was plotting against her, and said angrily, “You want me to eat more and get fatter, right?”

       Song Jun expressed that he was wrongly accused.

       Xia Hongshen said, “Alright, just eat what you want to have.”

       Xi Anling felt aggrieved, but she still couldn’t help finishing the ice cream.

       After returning to the dormitory in the evening, Xia Hongshen went to take a shower, and Song Jun used his laptop to surf the internet in his room. After playing for a while, he saw a QQ1messaging app pop-up window showing that Feng Junyuan had sent him a file.

       Song Jun was stunned for a moment and realised that Xia Hongshen’s QQ was hanging on this computer.

       He received Feng Junyuan’s compressed package and asked, “What?”

       Feng Junyuan replied, “For you.”

       Song Jun was confused. After unzipping the zip file, he found that there were more than a dozen photos in the folder. When he opened it, he found that they were all photos taken at the zoo today.

       Feng Junyuan used his mobile phone to take pictures of lions, tigers, leopards, and cheetahs in the zoo. Except for the lions, Song Jun couldn’t tell whether the other big cats were male or female.

       Anyway, when he heard Xia Hongshen open the door and come in, he immediately closed the photos and deleted them all so as not to show Xia Hongshen those various nude photos.

       Xia Hongshen still had moisture on his body. He walked up to Song Jun and asked him, “What are you doing?”

       Song Jun shook his head and said, “Nothing.”

       Xia Hongshen picked him up and put him on his lap.

       Song Jun reached out and gently brushed Xia Hongshen’s hair, just like how they did for many years.

       Xia Hongshen rested his head on Song Jun’s shoulder lazily.

       Song Jun suddenly said to him, “Let me teach you what lovers would do.”

       Xia Hongshen raised his head to look at him and said, “Okay.”

       As dawn approached, Song Jun lifted the hand that Xia Hongshen had wrapped around his waist and sat up from the bed. Since his soul was restored, his physical condition has improved significantly. For example, at this moment, he had enough energy to go to the bathroom and take a shower by himself.

       He thought of taking advantage of the situation before dawn; otherwise, it would be embarrassing if he bumped into Bu Hui when he got up later.

       As a result, as soon as Song Jun got out of bed, he was stopped by Xia Hongshen and dragged back.

       Xia Hongshen rolled over and sat on him.

       Song Jun cried bitterly, “Senior Brother Xia, stop making trouble.”

       Xia Hongshen obviously refused to give up easily. When Song Jun wanted to sit up, he pushed him back.

       Song Jun tried his best to turn over and crawled under the bed.

       Xia Hongshen suddenly showed his sharp claws and nailed Song Jun on the side of his head.

       Song Jun was startled and then felt something rubbing against his naked back. Without looking back, he could guess that it was Xia Hongshen who had shown his monster form at that time.

       Xia Hongshen bit Song Jun’s neck with his fangs, preventing him from escaping.

       Although he felt that the opponent was restraining his strength and did not want to bite him, Song Jun still refused to do it. He simply showed his original form, and a hard bronze sword fell to the ground with a clatter.

       Despite this, Xia Hongshen still took him to bed, and Song Jun didn’t want to remember what happened next.

       By the time Song Jun opened the door and wanted to take a shower, it was already dawn.

       He was in a daze. As soon as he opened the door, he saw Bu Hui passing by.

       Song Jun was startled and quickly closed the door.

       Bu Hui had already seen Song Jun. He ran over and knocked on the door curiously, asking, “Is it Song Jun? Why are you in the Senior Brother’s dormitory?”

       Song Jun leaned behind the door, not knowing how to answer him.

       In the end, Xia Hongshen walked over to him, opened the door, and said to Bu Hui, “He’s working on his paper.”

       After he heard Xia Hongshen say that, Bu Hui tacitly accepted that Song Jun was writing his thesis with Xia Hongshen guiding him through the night. He didn’t seem to find anything wrong and responded with an “Oh” before heading towards the water room.

       Later, when Bu Hui went out, Song Jun went to the water room to take a shower and then went back to his room to change clothes. He had to go to work at the appraisal centre today, and the senior sister should be discharged from the hospital this week.

       When he was going out, Song Jun saw Xia Hongshen transforming into a little black cat and waiting for him at the door.

       When Song Jun came out, the little black cat came over to tug off his trousers and wanted to follow him.

       Song Jun had no choice but to carry it along with him.

       Throughout the morning, the senior sister who was discharged from the hospital was trying to tease the little black cat, but the little black cat didn’t pay much attention to her. When it was bored, it would circle around Song Jun’s feet.

       The senior sister squatted next to the cat, reached out, tugged the tail of the little black cat, and said enviously, “How did you raise a cat to be so well-behaved?”

       Song Jun forced a smile and said, “Probably because of the breed.”

       The little black cat with nothing to do accompanied Song Jun for the whole day at the appraisal centre, and when there was nothing to do in the afternoon, it lay on Song Jun’s lap and slept.

       When he got off work in the afternoon, the senior sister had already left. Xia Hongshen asked Song Jun to go to Ling Xiao’s bar with him in the evening.

       Song Jun still hadn’t forgotten the time he went to the other person’s bar to cause trouble. He suddenly became a little nervous and asked, “Why do you want to go to his bar?”

       Xia Hongshen put a hand on his shoulder and said, “I want to tell them about the Demon Market.”

       Having said this, Song Jun asked curiously, “Do you know who the new City God is?”

       “It is temporarily vacant,” Xia Hongshen said. “The magistrate and The Lord Magistrate of Yin and Yang Division will manage internal and external affairs until suitable candidates are available.”

       Song Jun nodded when he heard this.

       In the evening, as soon as Xia Hongshen and Song Jun walked into Ling Xiao’s bar, the atmosphere in the entire bar suddenly became tense.

       Xia Hongshen casually sat down on the sofa next to him, and all the demons around him moved away.

       Xiang Wenxi ran over aggressively and said, “What are you doing here?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “Going clubbing.”

       Xiang Wenxi said angrily, “You are not welcome!”

       Xia Hongshen simply put his long legs on the table, folded his hands on his chest and looked at Xiang Wenxi.

       Xiang Wenxi was also a little afraid of him, so he turned to Song Jun and said, “You are not allowed to bring weapons!”

       Song Jun suddenly became angry and said, “What do you mean! There are no rules written at your door!”

       At this time, Ling Xiao came over to stop their quarrel.

       Ling Xiao sat down opposite Xia Hongshen and asked, “What is the purpose of your visit?”

       Their hostility towards Xia Hongshen had been reduced a lot after this demonic attack on the city. At least the purpose of this great demon staying in this city was not to destroy it but to protect it like them.

       Demons were different from deities. They shared this city with humans, and they didn’t want this place to be destroyed easily, so they also had their own order.

       Xia Hongshen did not answer Ling Xiao’s question but asked, “Where are the remnants of Demon Market now?”

       Ling Xiao said, “Mr. Yun is the one who is announcing the news. He said before that the Demon Market would be closed.”

       Xia Hongshen said to him, “I know. Go asked Mr. Yun to come to see me and then run the Demon Market.”

       This time, not only Ling Xiao but also many people in the bar were attracted.

       “You want to reopen the Demon Market?” Xiang Wenxi was very surprised.

       Xia Hongshen asked, “Not allowed?”

       Xiang Wenxi hesitated, “I thought you were going back to heaven.”

       “I’m not going back,” Xia Hongshen said. “I will take over the Demon Market from now on, and I will not ignore the affairs of the Demon Realm.”

       Song Jun couldn’t help but glance at Xia Hongshen.

       Xia Hongshen remained expressionless, and others had no way of guessing what he was thinking.

       But Song Jun knew that he and Xia Hongshen had been together for so long, and he often knew exactly what Xia Hongshen was thinking. In fact, Xia Hongshen just wanted to stay in this city. What happened with Cen Le probably made Xia Hongshen feel a little irritated. He was not willing to have someone to easily cause trouble in this city.

       Xia Hongshen was marking territory. This arrogant big cat had designated this entire city as his own territory, so everything here must be developed under his control. Other beasts that wanted to break into his territory must be evicted.

       Ling Xiao was originally a ferocious beast too, but Xia Hongshen probably didn’t pay much attention to him. In terms of strength, Ling Xiao was no match for Xia Hongshen.

       Fortunately, wolves were social animals. Ling Xiao did not reject Xia Hongshen too much. He said, “I will contact Mr. Yun and tell him your intention.”

       Xia Hongshen nodded, “Tell him to come see me.”

       So two months later, when autumn was just about to arrive, the Demon Market opened again.

       That night, Feng Junyuan stood at the gate of the amusement park checking tickets.

       All the monsters who entered looked at him secretly and then whispered, “This is Demon Zhen’s Gilded Phoenix Wings.”

       “It looks so handsome!”

       “But not as good as Chunjun though.”

       “It’s already very impressive. I heard that Chunjun is here today too.”

       Feng Junyuan’s face was expressionless, and he stretched out his hand to the next monster to enter, “Tickets.”

       The amusement park was very lively. This was probably the most lively time for the Demon Market in the history of the entire city.

       The giant panda was still selling masks at the fork in the road. Long Xing selected for a long time, but he still couldn’t find one he was satisfied with.

       The giant panda took one at random and put it on his face, saying, “Don’t pick any more, they all look good.”

       Long Xing hesitated for a moment, walked to the edge of the swimming pool, and took a look at his reflection in the water as if he didn’t quite believe what the giant panda had said.

       The giant panda waddled over and wanted to say a few nice words, but because its belly was too big, it knocked Long Xing into the swimming pool.

       “Oops,” it cried with little sincerity, “I’m sorry.”

       At this time, a soft silver whip stretched out from the water, wrapped one of the giant pandas’ feet, and dragged it down, causing a huge splash of water.

       Xi Anling heard the commotion, took a look, then turned back and continued to guard the stall selling cotton candy in front of her.

       The owner of the stall was a squirrel demon. In fact, it was not easy for animals with short life spans like squirrels to become demons. Even if they could cultivate, their magic power was not very strong.

       Facing Xi Anling, it became a bit nervous. The cotton candy it had finally managed to turn around shook a bit when it handed it over, and it fell to the ground.

       Xi Anling said, “Oh” regretfully and turned to look at the squirrel, waiting for it to make one for her again.

       The little squirrel was stared at by Xi Anling, and its two front teeth suddenly began to tremble.

       Xi Anling looked at it strangely, imitating it and chattering her teeth, and said, “What are you doing? Make me a new one quickly, or give me my money back.”

       The little squirrel trembled even more.

       Xi Anling said angrily, “I’m going to find my master.”

       The little squirrel jumped up and ran away from the seat. Xi Anling couldn’t catch up, so she had to give up.

       Song Jun sat at the highest point of the Ferris wheel. Although the lights were flashing, the entire Ferris wheel was not moving, so he could always look down at the scenery from the highest point.

       Xia Hongshen maintained his monster form, lying on the roof of Song Jun’s small carriage, dragging his tail down and knocking on the glass window.

       Song Jun reached out and grabbed his tail.

       Xia Hongshen then flicked his tail and directly rolled Song Jun out and put him on his back.

       Song Jun lay on top of him and looked down with him.

       Suddenly, with some surprise, Song Jun pointed to a bald man in the crowd and said, “Is that Master Yun Po?”

       Xia Hongshen took a look and snorted from his nose.

       Song Jun scratched the hair on the top of his head and said, “Who is that behind him?”

       Xia Hongshen took another look and said, “A ghost.”

       Song Jun looked carefully and found that the ghost following Yun Po turned out to be Wan Mingguang.

       Suddenly feeling a little relieved, Song Jun lay down and brushed the soft fur on Xia Hongshen’s back.

       Xia Hongshen said, “Have you finished writing your paper? Can it be submitted to SCI2SCI stands for Science Citation Index, which is a citation index originally produced by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI).?”

       Song Jun said helplessly, “Can you shut up at this time?”

       At the same time, fireworks bloomed in the sky, and the September Demon Market officially began.

       Chunjun had been accompanying Demon Zhen for thousands of years and perhaps countless thousands more; it will never end.

Chapter 30 – The Ending

       After returning to Hanguan, life returned to what it was before. Zhuo Yue began to work regularly and complete all the tasks given to him by his master. However, he lost his previous enthusiasm for adapting to the camera. He no longer went to the cage alone and even began to reject adaptation exercises.

       He became increasingly difficult to focus, constantly drifting away.

       Fang Mingyan quickly noticed something unusual, but did not make any comment and continued to adapt to the training as planned. Zhuo Yue began to rely more and more on the man and always preferred to be near him.

       That night, Fang Mingyan worked late in the study and fell asleep on the sofa as usual. When he woke up in a daze, he saw a man sitting beside him and looking at him. There was an expression in those dark eyes that he couldn’t understand, as if there was some intolerance and pity in the gentleness.

       He called out softly, “Master.”

       “Shh.” Fang Mingyan pressed his middle finger on Zhuo Yue’s lips and said, “Don’t talk.” Then he stroked his cheek with his fingers, looked at him quietly from above for a while, and leaned forward to kiss him.

       Zhuo Yue fell into his lingering kiss and stayed in a daze—so much so that when he woke up the next day, he couldn’t tell whether it had really happened or if it was just a dream.

       One night, two weeks after the awards ceremony, Zhuo Yue accepted the order to go to the fourth floor for adaptation training as usual. He knelt in the middle of the carpet, glanced at the camera, and pursed his lips.

       However, Fang Mingyan didn’t come up for a long time.

       As the hour hand continued to move forward, Zhuo Yue became anxious.

       An hour had almost passed, exceeding the usual time to adapt to training. He turned around several times to look at the door, but there was still no movement. He didn’t know why the man hadn’t shown up, and he didn’t dare get up. He could only wait there anxiously, staring at the clock in a daze.

       When the door opened, nearly eighty minutes had passed. Zhuo Yue was startled and immediately bowed his back with a distressed expression. When Fang Mingyan’s footsteps stopped before him, he spoke with a trembling voice, “Master… I feel uncomfortable…”

       The man did not carry him out as he had done in the past but stood in silence.

       Zhuo Yue bit his lip and raised his head to look at him, only to see Fang Mingyan faintly looking at himself. His eyes moved, and he called out, “Master ……”

       “You plan to continue acting, right?” The man’s voice was extremely cold.

       Zhuo Yue felt his heart suddenly sank and froze in place.

       “Kneel down and look at me.”

       The cold command made Zhuo Yue tremble involuntarily and called out in panic, “Master…”

       “Do you need me to say it a second time?”

       He did not dare disobey the order. He straightened his upper body into a standard kneeling posture and then raised his head uneasily. Their eyes crossed, and the man’s black eyes were as sharp as one’s heart. Zhuo Yue, who was already feeling guilty, was at a loss under such a gaze, and his eyes avoided looking at each other.

       Fang Mingyan drew a black riding crop from the wall, raised Zhuo Yue’s chin with the whip at the front, forced him to look at him, and asked, “What order did I just give you?”

       “Kneel down and look at you.” His throat was dry.

       “Why did you look away?”

       “…I was wrong.”

       “Turn around.”

       He had just turned and knelt when he heard a slight thud. The riding crop hit his back diagonally, making him scream in surprise. The leather of this kind of whip was tough. It made little noise when used, but the pain inflicted was very strong. He had rarely suffered such a heavy punishment, and this harsh pain made him tremble all over.

       “Does it hurt?” A cold male voice came from behind.

       Zhuo Yue’s eyes were red, but he still tried his best to straighten his upper body and kneel down. He then replied, “It hurts…”

       “If you are afraid of pain, answer my question carefully.” Fang Mingyan said, “When did you find out that your camera phobia is cured?”

       The most feared thing finally happened. Zhuo Yue’s heart felt cold, and he pursed his lips tightly and said nothing.

       “If you don’t want to answer, that’s fine.” The man raised his hand and whipped him for the second time. The pain spread, and the whole back was burning.

       The second question followed, “Why did you hide it from me?”

       Zhuo Yue still gritted his teeth and remained silent, but he soon received another whipping.

       “How long do you plan to keep this from me?”

       Still silent.

       The whip did not fall. The man behind him threw the whip aside and untied the fingerprint collar around his neck. Zhuo Yue’s eyes widened as he froze and called out in panic, “Master…”

       “As I said, the relationship between master and slave should be based on mutual trust and voluntariness. If this foundation collapses, the master-slave relationship will cease to exist.” Fang Mingyan paused and continued, “Your pretense wasn’t enough to fool me, and I didn’t reveal it because I wanted to give you enough trust so that you could take the initiative to tell me everything. I gave you a chance, but you didn’t treasure it. Zhuo Yue, since I am not enough to make you trust me wholeheartedly, then the master-slave relationship between us ends here.”

       Zhuo Yue turned around in panic, and the tears in his eyes finally couldn’t be held back anymore and fell from the corners of his eyes.

       His heart ached.

       It hurts a thousand times—ten thousand times more than those whips on the back. It was as if someone had dug it out of his body with blood, turning it into a broken hollow. The pain was so painful that he could hardly breathe. He couldn’t open my mouth to argue and didn’t dare to beg for forgiveness. Zhuo Yue raised his face and begged in the most humble manner, “Master, I was wrong, no matter how you punish me… Please…”

       Please, don’t abandon me.

       “Stand up.” The man’s voice was cold.

       “…because I’m scared.” Zhuo Yue’s shoulder blades were trembling, and there was heartbreaking helplessness and sadness in his crying voice, “I’m afraid that you will let me go after you find out, I’m afraid that I will lose you after I recover, I’m afraid to imagine life without you. I have no other choice but to pretend. Master, I want to stay by your side… because, because…”

       “That’s enough.” Fang Mingyan interrupted the words he had repeated countless times in his heart and said indifferently, “Zhuo Yue, I have terminated the contractual relationship with you. You don’t need to use this title for me anymore. Now, I will treat you as a guest, and please respect me as a homeowner. The fourth floor is my personal private area. Please leave.”

       It’s all over.

       The despair that surged up was like a turbulent sea, turning the world upside down.

       Zhuo Yue stood up stiffly like a puppet with its strings broken and walked towards the stairs outside. Tears rolled down uncontrollably, leaving marks on his cheeks that were difficult to dry. His vision was empty and blurry, his strength seemed to have been drained, and every part of his body had lost consciousness. Just when he lost his balance on the edge of the stairs and was about to fall, someone grabbed his arm and pulled him back.

       Seeing Fang Mingyan’s frowning expression, he apologized anxiously, “I’m sorry…”

       The man grabbed his wrist and entered the guest room on the third floor. He took a nightgown from the closet and put it on the bed, “Sleep here tonight. If you need anything, you can call Zhou Chi. You know his number. Tomorrow morning Lin Hui will pick you up at nine o’clock.” After saying that, he turned and left, closing the door.

       Decisive and resolute, passionate and ruthless, this is Fang Mingyan’s attitude towards his sub.

       Zhuo Yue sat down on the ground beside the bed with red eyes and buried his head in his knees. From the first time he pretended to feel uncomfortable, guilt and uneasiness had always been with him. Whenever he wanted to explain, he lost his courage because of cowardice. He was greedy for the tenderness given by the man. He wanted to maintain the relationship between the two and enjoyed every second spent by the man’s side. He thought he was cleverly delaying time, and finally brought everything to an irreversible situation.

       It was just his own fault.

       He didn’t know how long he had been sitting. When he stood up, his legs were so numb that he could hardly feel them.

       The night was silent without any sound. He walked naked through the corridor, walked down the stairs to the door of the master bedroom, and then curled up against the door. The moonlight filtered in from the corridor window and shone on him, like a gentle companionship.

       Zhuo Yue gradually fell asleep. In his daze, he had a hazy dream. In the dream, the tall man hugged him, placed him gently on the bed, then leaned over and kissed the moist corners of his eyes, and seemed to say something to him. He tried hard to hear the voice clearly, but it was blown away by the sudden strong wind, leaving only the word ‘sorry’.

       When he woke up the next day, he found himself sleeping on the bed in the guest room. A complete set of clothes from inside to outside was placed on the vertical clothes rack next to the bed. He got dressed and went downstairs. The butler, Zhou Chi, stood at the top of the stairs with a smile and bowed slightly to him, “Mr. Zhuo.”

       “Mas…where is Chairman Fang?” he asked.

       “Master Ming said he had something to do and went out early in the morning. I don’t know his specific whereabouts.” Zhou Chi said, “He has arranged a car to pick you up and is waiting outside the door. Do you have any items that you need me to pack for you?”

       “No.” Zhuo Yue’s smile was a little sad.

       From the beginning, he came here with nothing, and ultimately, he left with nothing. Everything he gained was finally lost, and the only thing left was the longing for another man in his heart, but that man didn’t even want to see him again.

       “It’s time for me to go.” Moist mist filled his eyes again. He lowered his eyes to hide his emotions and said, “Please help me bring him a message. Thank you for taking care of him all the time. I will work hard. Please rest assured.” He glanced back in the direction of the stairs and turned to go out.

       Lin Hui, who was called to pick him up at short notice last night, was startled when he saw Zhuo Yue’s red and swollen eyes and pale face. He didn’t dare to ask anything and silently started the car.

       Zhou Chi watched them leave, took a cup of tea to the study, and said to the man standing by the window looking at the lake in the distance, “Master Ming, Mr. Zhuo has left.”

       “Yeah.” Fang Mingyan took the teacup but didn’t drink it.

       “He asked me to tell you something.” The butler repeated Zhuo Yue’s words.

       The man listened with a calm expression and said, “Contact Tang Can and ask him to send someone to keep an eye on Zhuo Yue throughout this period, especially when he is working in front of the camera. If any symptoms similar to PTSD appear, report to me immediately.”

       “I understand.” Zhou Chi stood there for a moment and couldn’t help but ask, “Since you can’t help but worry about him, why don’t you let him stay?”

       Fang Mingyan glanced at the collar on the table, “People always have to make a lot of choices, and sometimes they have to give up something in order to move forward.”

       “You let him go in order to move forward?” he asked in confusion.

       The man smiled lightly, his tall body standing by the window looking a little lonely, “You can think of it that way.”

Chapter 58 – (Side Story) The Whole City Under Siege

       Luo Fei recognising Song Jun was not a surprising thing. What surprised him was that the Panda’s Senior Brother was not a fat man.

       He lowered his voice and said to the giant panda, “Your senior brother is quite handsome, isn’t he? Why is he so thin?”

       The giant panda said, “Because he is not a panda. Besides, isn’t the fat man good-looking?”

       Song Jun said quickly, “That goes without saying, you are the best-looking. But if he is not a panda, what kind of demon is he? I can’t see his true form.”

       The giant panda was about to answer Song Jun’s question, but Luo Fei interrupted them at the right time. He asked Song Jun, “You want to find the whereabouts of the Dragon Tip Whip?”

       Song Jun immediately returned to business. He nodded, “Can you help us?”

       Luo Fei smiled and said, “Of course. If I am not mistaken, what you are most worried about now is that the demon will leave the city with the Dragon Tip Whip. By then, the world will be too vast, and even for someone as powerful as Demon Zhen, there will be no way to find out Dragon Tip’s whereabouts again.”

       Song Jun had to admit that what Luo Fei was saying now was what they were most worried about at the moment.

       Luo Fei said, “I know a way to help you.”

       Song Jun quickly concentrated his attention and said, “Sir, please give me some advice.”

       Luo Fei said, “I know that Master Yun Po of Hongyin Temple knows a magic circle to catch demons, and all demons will easily not be able to get out once they break into the spell. We only need to set up a huge magic circle around the city. It can trap that demon in the city and prevent him from leaving the city.”

       Song Jun was surprised by his whimsical idea and said, “How could we set up such a large magic circle?”

       Luo Fei said, “There are so many demons here, and they are all intimidated by Demon Zhen’s powerful ability. It is not difficult to set up a huge spell formation that surrounds the whole city.”

       “Even so,” Song Jun said, “How can Master Yun Po’s demon-trapping magic circle be easily taught to us demons?”

       Luo Fei smiled when he heard this and said, “I think money can make the world go round. Besides, there have been many rumours about Master Yun Po. We can use money to try it.”

       Song Jun hesitated, “We have no money.”

       The giant panda bumped Song Jun and almost knocked him down.

       “Are you stupid?” The giant panda said to Song Jun, “Have you forgotten who I said my senior brother is? Ask him for help!”

       Song Jun certainly wasn’t a fool, but Luo Fei wasn’t a fool either. There was no such thing as a free lunch in the world. Luo Fei took the initiative to help, obviously, he obviously had a request for them.

       Luo Fei saw that Song Jun was silent, so he was not in a hurry and waited for him to express his position.

       Song Jun had no choice but to finally ask, “Can Mr. Luo help?”

       Luo Fei smiled and said, “I have one condition.”

       Song Jun thought to himself, here it comes.

       Unexpectedly, Luo Fei next said, “But I haven’t thought of this condition yet, if you promise to keep this condition for me, I am also willing to help you communicate with Master Yun Po.”

       Song Jun said, “I can’t make the decision, so I’d better ask my master.”

       Luo Fei smiled and nodded,  indicating that he would be happy to do so.

       Song Jun took Luo Fei to find Xia Hongshen in the middle of the playground. After listening to Song Jun’s words about Luo Fei’s conditions, Xia Hongshen agreed to him without even thinking.

       Song Jun was a little nervous, grabbed Xia Hongshen and asked in a low voice, “Have you ever thought about what you would do if you couldn’t agree to the conditions he proposed, such as giving me to him?”

       Xia Hongshen’s answer was very simple and clear, “Kill him.”

       Song Jun was speechless.

       At this time, Feng Junyuan was sitting on a bench not far from the carousel, pressing his chest uncomfortably. If he continued to spin for a few more minutes, he probably would have really spun and vomited.

       Suddenly, someone put a scarf around his neck.

       It was late autumn now. Although Feng Junyuan and the others would not freeze to death, they would still feel cold. The scarf was wrapped around his neck, and he felt the warm temperature and the smell of men’s perfume on it.

       Luo Fei sat down next to him and asked him, “Are you not feeling well?”

       Feng Junyuan patted his chest and said, “I feel like vomiting.”

       Luo Fei said, “Wait.”

       He whistled, and a short man hurried over. Feng Junyuan realised that it was a rat demon. He respectfully said to Luo Fei, “Boss Luo, do you need anything?”

       Luo Fei said, “Go buy some hangover medicine.” After that, he gave the man two hundred yuan.

       The man went happily.

       Feng Junyuan suddenly discovered that money not only makes ghosts go around but also makes demons run errands. It was great to have money.

       Luo Fei put his arm around his shoulders, let Feng Junyuan lean on his shoulders, and said, “Close your eyes and take a rest.”

       Feng Junyuan pressed his face against Luo Fei’s shoulder and felt that even the material of Luo Fei’s clothes was softer than Xia Hongshen’s.

       Xia Hongshen, who was completely unaware, sneezed and jumped to the top of the amusement park. Seeing that the appointed time had come, almost all the monsters in the city should gather here.

       The matter of communicating with Yun Po was handed over to Luo Fei.

       After hearing about Luo Fei’s intention, Yun Po refused without hesitation.

       Luo Fei said, “I can help Master Demon Zhen pay you back the money he owes you.”

       Yun Po rolled his eyes at him, “Am I such a superficial person?”

       Luo Fei took out the Porsche key from his pocket and handed it to Yun Po, “I heard that your car was destroyed by that white-haired monster. This is a small compensation.”

       Yun Po took it and said, “These were originally included in the old Xia’s debt.”

       Luo Fei didn’t mind his actions at all and said, “I am willing to donate another 100,000 yuan of incense money to Hongyin Temple. I wonder what Master Yun Po thinks?”

       As soon as he finished speaking, Wan Mingguang, who was following Yun Po, opened his eyes wide, “One hundred thousand? That’s really a lot of money for incense.”

       Yun Po finally couldn’t resist anymore and said, “It’s everyone’s responsibility to subdue the demons and get rid of the devils. You write the check, and I will draw the magic circle for you. You will hand over the money, and I will deliver the goods.”

       Luo Fei smiled and said, “Okay.”

       After Yun Po finished drawing his demon-trapping spell formation, Xia Hongshen organised all the demons in the city to disperse and lay out this huge magic circle to surround the entire city.

       Yun Po summoned Xia Hongshen and Luo Fei and arranged, “The breaking formation of this magic circle is located at the four points of the southeast, northwest and northwest. To be honest, the magic circle is not difficult. If you have some knowledge of demons, you may have seen it, so we must arrange for people to guard the position. This is also an opportunity to seize him.”

       “How should we arrange the four directions?” Song Jun asked.

       Xia Hongshen thought for a moment and said, “According to the demonic beast’s previous course of action, I guess it’s most likely that he’ll be impacting the northern formation point.”

       Yun Po nodded, “Then the North needs the strongest defence.”

       Xia Hongshen said, “Song Jun and I will go.”

       Luo Fei said, “I can help you guard one side, but I have to ask Fengliu to follow me.”

       Xia Hongshen responded, “Okay.”

       Yun Po sighed, “I’ve taken all the money from you, so let’s send Buddha to the west. Mingguang and I will guard one side.”

       There was one formation point left.

       Xia Hongshen looked at Xi Anling.

       Xi Anling’s eyes widened, “Don’t look at me. I can’t do it.”

       Xia Hongshen said, “You have to do it even if you can’t, let Qin Song accompany you to guard the south side.”

       “Qin Song?” Xi Anling’s tone was completely that of you fvcking playing with me.

       At this time, the little squirrel was trying to escape.

       Xia Hongshen glanced around and shouted: “Qin Song, come back!”

       The little squirrel stood still for a moment, turned his head slowly with a trembling body, and whispered, “I’m going to draw the magic circle…”

       Xia Hongshen said, “No need for you to do that. You accompany Yueya to defend the southern position.”

       The little squirrel’s voice trembled, “I…can’t…can…”

       Xia Hongshen ignored it at all and said, “That’s it!”

       All the demons and monsters in the city were mobilised, and the formation was constructed very quickly. Several people guarding the formation were also in place to prevent the white-haired monsters from breaking the formation.

       Xi Anling and Qin Song, who were guarding the southernmost area, looked at each other and didn’t know what to do. The two of them were standing on a road out of the city in the south. This location was due south. Because it was late at night, there were almost no cars passing by.

       Qin Song said, “If they come, we two can’t stop them at all.”

       Xi Anling said, “That’s why he will definitely not come. I trust my master.”

       Qin Song whispered: “But I don’t believe him…”

       Xi Anling glared at him, “Shut up!”

       The little squirrel sniffed.

       At this moment, a sudden gust of evil wind blew up, and Xi Anling’s short skirt was blown up, revealing her lace panties.

       Qin Song covered his eyes and screamed.

       Xi Anling said angrily, “Why are you the one screaming?! I didn’t even scream!”

       As she finished speaking, the evil wind blew stronger and stronger. Both of them were no longer in the mood to joke. Qin Song stepped forward and stood cautiously in front of Xi Anling, saying, “If it really comes, you run away first, and I will block it for a while.”

       Xi Anling did not run away. She said, “I’ll call Master.”

       However, before she could summon Xia Hongshen and the others, a naked man with long white hair walked over from the other side of the road and headed out of the city.

       Xi Anling couldn’t help but hold her breath and whispered, “It turns out he is a pervert.”

       Qin Song’s teeth kept chattering.

       The white-haired man suddenly sped up and rushed toward them. At the same time, he raised the whip and swung it at Qin Song and Xi Anling.

       He moved so fast that Xi Anling and Qin Song had no time to avoid him.

       Xi Anling gritted her teeth and shouted, “Long Xing!” She was very angry because the enemy used Long Xing as a weapon to attack them.

       However, the whip failed to hit them after all. A bronze sword stood in front of Xi Anling and Qin Song. The dragon tip whip wrapped around the body of Chunjun’s sword and spun several times.

       Xia Hongshen held Chunjun in his hand, pulled the Dragon Tip Whip straight, and said to the white-haired man in front of him, “Give me the Dragon Tip Whip back.”

       The white-haired man lowered his head slightly, his long hair falling down and his appearance unclear.

       When Xi Anling saw Xia Hongshen coming, she immediately felt that she had a backer and became bolder. She pulled Qin Song to hide back and said, “Let that pervert give Long Xing back!”

       The white-haired man loosened his hand slightly and retracted the Dragon Tip Whip. He raised his head, looked at Xia Hongshen, and said, “Demon Zhen.”

       Xia Hongshen looked at him and said, “Who are you?”

       The white-haired man said, “I have seen you before, but you don’t recognise me.”

       Xia Hongshen frowned slightly.

       The white-haired man put away the Dragon Tip Whip and suddenly transformed into a huge white beast that looked like a dog.

       “Firefly,” Xia Hongshen said, and then he let go of Chunjun and transformed into his own beast form.
