Chapter 89

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

       What was it? A great demon like his master?

       For this question, Li Zhenruo asked Feng Junyuan curiously.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

       Li Zhenran seemed to have lost weight.

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

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

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

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

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

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

       The latter sentence was said to Li Zhenran.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

       Then the two were silent for a short time.

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

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

       Li Zhenruo looked back at him and said nothing.

       Li Zhenran then raised his head and waited for him.

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

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

       Li Zhenruo didn’t answer him.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

       Luo Fei said, “Wait a minute.”

       Li Zhenruo could only wait beside him in silence.

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

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

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

       Li Zhenruo said, “No need.”

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

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

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

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

       Luo Fei pointed in the direction of Li Zhenran.

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

       Li Zhenruo looked at Li Zhenran.

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

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

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

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

       Li Zhenruo looked at them expressionlessly while eating grapes.

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

       Li Zhenran didn’t answer.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

       Li Zhenran replied, “I want to know.”

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

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

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


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

    Luo Fei being a good friend. Seeing Zhenran waste away, he’s forcing the issue.
    And even if Zhenran doesn’t believe Zhenruo is dead, he’s still absolutely heart sick without him there. And if Zhenruo insists on keeping up the charade, he won’t ever be able to force him to be with him willingly.
