Chapter 23

       They had started the dinner late, and then they chatted while drinking. It was late at night when they finished eating.

       Li Zhenruo followed Li Zhenran’s feet back to the room where they stayed at night. It was a small villa with a living room and bathroom on the first floor, and a small room on the second floor with a big bed on it.

       On the way, Li Zhenruo stared at Luo Fei and Feng Junyuan and found that they entered the same villa. Li Zhenruo wasn’t a naive young boy who didn’t understand anything, he had also some fun outside himself. When he saw Luo Fei and Feng Junyuan, he knew that their relationship might not be so simple.

       However, he didn’t get along with Luo Fei much, and he really didn’t expect that the other party liked a man.

       Suddenly Li Zhenruo bumped into Li Zhenran’s leg and stopped.

       He raised his head and looked at Li Zhenran strangely. He didn’t understand why he walked and stopped.

       Li Zhenran also looked at him and said, “Why do you keep staring at them?”

       In his heart, Li Zhenruo said, I’m just taking a look, and it’s not like I can answer you.

       Li Zhenran didn’t need his answer. After he finished the question, he continued to walk forward.

       Back in the room, Li Zhenruo was caught by Li Zhenran and his feet was washed clean before he was thrown into the room to be by himself.

       Before Li Zhenran went to take a bath, he pointed at Li Zhenruo’s nose and said, “You try running again.”

       Li Zhenruo thought in his heart that he would not run away. How many times have you said this, but I really will not run away!

       After intimidating Li Zhenruo, Li Zhenran stood by the sofa and started to undress.

       Li Zhenruo has been getting along with Li Zhenran for two or three months, and he’s already used to it. At first, he would turn his head, but later he felt that it didn’t matter. Isn’t it because he has a good build that his thing is also big? Anyway, he was a cat, so he won’t lose out if he saw it.

       Li Zhenran took off his clothes and went to the bathroom. Li Zhenruo went to drink water, then wiped the water off his face on the carpet, and went upstairs to lay down beside the bed.

       The air seemed to be a little hot.

       Li Zhenruo rubbed his face on his paws. The air in the mountains was very fresh. Not only he did not need to turn on the air conditioner at night when the temperature dropped, but he also had to sleep under a thick quilt, which was a little damp.

       But no matter what, it has nothing to do with the hot weather.

       Li Zhenruo thought to himself that he didn’t drink beer tonight, but why was he so restless and couldn’t calm down. He rolled around on the bed for a long time, and when he heard Li Zhenran open the bathroom door and come out, he suddenly raised his head and was stunned.

       He realized one thing, he might be in heat.

       Damn it!

       After he realized this, Li Zhenruo suddenly became nervous. Of course, he knew that cats would go into heat and that the best way to deal with a house cat was to neuter it.

       But his soul was a person and not a cat. Of course, he couldn’t accept being neutered. He thought that with his willpower alone, even when he was in a rut, he would never urinate and meowed like a real cat in a rut. But he didn’t expect that even if he could restrain himself from doing inappropriate behaviour, that kind of physiological discomfort would be unavoidable no matter what.

       Li Zhenruo got up from the bed and walked downstairs along the stairs.

       It just so happened that Li Zhenran was coming upstairs, wearing only a pair of underwear after taking a shower, with a slender body and well-proportioned muscles, he looked like a male model in a commercial.

       Li Zhenran asked him where he was going.

       He went down to pee, then crawled back to the edge of the bed.

       He had no place to go this late, and it was not like he could break down the door to find a female cat, right? Bah! He has no sexual interest in female cats, and if he was looking for it, he would be looking for a female human.

       But it looked like no woman would be interested in him.

       As he thought of this, Li Zhenruo felt sad for a while.

       Li Zhenran lifted the quilt and sat on the bed, took out his mobile phone and looked at it for a while.

       Li Zhenruo told himself to calm down as much as possible, not to think about anything, and to sleep quietly.

       But he didn’t sleep very well that night. First, he kept waking up in a state of discomfort. Second, even if he fell asleep, he didn’t keep dreaming1in a deep sleep state, and he couldn’t sleep well at all.

       He found out that the effect of hormones on the body caused by male cats’ rut was terrible. All night, shining bright scenes kept flashing right before his eyes. Later, he saw a hairy butt in it, and he woke up all of a sudden.

       If Li Zhenruo was able to sweat, he must be full of cold sweat now. Was he thinking it couldn’t be that bad? If he was really in heat with a female cat, then he was finished. He didn’t want to end like this!

       The next morning, when Li Zhenran got up and washed in the bathroom, he suddenly stuck his head out and looked at Li Zhenruo who was peeing outside.

       Li Zhenruo subconsciously wanted to turn his back to him.

       Li Zhenran said, “Did you drink too much water last night? Frequent urination?”

       Li Zhenruo raised his head, gritted his teeth and decided to ignore him.

       In the morning, Li Zhenran invited Luo Fei to fish by the lake.

       The two of them were obviously not very old, but for some reason, they were extraordinarily calm. They could sit quietly by the lake for a day and just stared at the fishing rod.

       Li Zhenran wore a sun hat and a pair of sunglasses. He looked like a big star. He sat leisurely on the reclining chair, leaned back and raised one of his long legs.

       Luo Fei was beside him, and Feng Junyuan was sitting beside Luo Fei.

       Feng Junyuan was also a very quiet young man. Luo Fei taught him how to fish, and he stared at the lake without saying a word while holding the fishing rod.

       After a while, Luo Fei took the fishing rod from his hand with a smile and said, “You are too murderous, the fish will not take the bait.”

       When Li Zhenruo heard these words, he was a little strange at first, but then he thought, this probably means that Feng Junyuan was a surgeon with a scalpel, so the killing intent was more apparent.

       Among them, the most unsettled person was Li Zhenruo.

       In order to avoid inappropriate behaviour, he has restrained himself a lot. But it was precisely because of this restraint that he was so irritable that he could hardly sit quietly for a moment.

       Li Zhenruo didn’t dare to stay away from Li Zhenran, for fear that he would be unhappy.

       So when Li Zhenran was fishing, Li Zhenruo started to circle around Li Zhenran’s legs.

       Li Zhenran ignored him at first, but later became annoyed and kicked his ass lightly with his foot when he passed by.

       Li Zhenruo took two steps forward, turned around, and let out a threatening growl.

       Li Zhenran lowered his hat, his eyes were covered by sunglasses, but his tone was not very gentle, “Throwing a tantrum?”

       Li Zhenruo was actually just a little irritable under the effect of hormones. Li Zhenran asked coldly, and Li Zhenruo immediately lowered his head and silently walked to the side to pick up the fish in the bucket.

       Li Zhenran sat for an hour and caught three fish, one of which was quite large.

       Li Zhenruo was lying on the edge of the bucket and put his claws in to fiddle with the fish. It wasn’t that he wanted to eat, he just couldn’t sit still for a moment and needed to do something to distract him from the fluffy furry cat’s ass.

       There was only half a bucket of water in the bucket. Li Zhenruo lay on his stomach and swayed his claws. Unexpectedly, he flipped the bucket over and put it on his head.

       The fish fell out of the bucket and flopped vigorously on the ground.

       Li Zhenruo panicked in his heart, stretched out his claws to lift the bucket, and stepped back. As a result, because it was not far from the edge of the lake when he took a few steps back, he fell into the lake at once.

       Li Zhenran reached out to pull to grab him but failed to do so. He could only remove the bucket from his head.

       Li Zhenruo fluttered in the water.

       This time, Li Zhenran grabbed him by the collar and pulled him up.

       Luo Fei laughed and said to Li Zhenran, “Your cat is really interesting.”

       Li Zhenran took off his sunglasses and looked at Li Zhenruo expressionlessly.

       Li Zhenruo shook off the water on his body. Because the fur on his body was wet, he looked like he lost a lot of weight. He raised his head to look at Li Zhenran, still gasping for breath.

       Li Zhenran put down the fishing rod and took Li Zhenruo back to the room to shower him with clean water, and then dried the hair with a hairdryer.

       When Li Zhenran was sitting on the sofa blowing his hair, his fingers stroked his skin, and the warm air was gently simmering again, and Li Zhenruo immediately felt his mind rippling.

       When Li Zhenran stretched out his fingers in front of him, he suddenly opened his mouth to bite, but of course, he couldn’t bite anything.

       But the next moment, Li Zhenran twisted his mouth and asked him, “What are you doing? Do you want to bite me?”

       Li Zhenruo was stunned for a moment, his behaviour just now was completely a subconscious physiological reaction, and he didn’t know what was going on.

       Li Zhenran stared at him, “You’ve been quite abnormal since yesterday, huh?”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t know how to react, he turned over and got up from Li Zhenran’s leg at last. He was very irritable and didn’t know what to do. He wished he could just bump into the sofa and faint.

       During lunch, Li Zhenruo had no appetite, so he jumped to the chair beside Li Zhenran and sat down.

       A young waitress couldn’t help touching his head when she was serving.

       As a result, he grumpily lunged forward at her, making a move to bite, but of course, didn’t actually bite.

       The waiter was taken aback, and at the same time, he was scolded by the supervisor.

       Li Zhenran looked at Li Zhenruo strangely and said, “It’s not usually like this.”

       Luo Fei asked, “What happened to it?”

       Li Zhenran thought about it for a while, “It’s a little cranky, loves to bite people, and urinates very often.”

       At this moment, Feng Junyuan suddenly said, “It’s in heat.”

       Li Zhenran was a little stunned and looked up at him.

       Luo Fei didn’t know what to think, so he laughed.

       After Feng Junyuan finished speaking, he had nothing to say but turned his head to look at Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenruo groaned in his heart, he also knew that he was in heat, but it was embarrassing to be told like that, especially in front of Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenran folded his arms around his chest and asked, “Are you sure?”

       Before Feng Junyuan could answer, Luo Fei said for him, “He is sure, he has had cats at home, so he should know it very well.”

       Li Zhenran frowned slightly. Obviously, Li Zhenruo’s current condition was somewhat unacceptable to him. He asked, “How long will the cat’s rut last?”

       Feng Junyuan said, “It will be more than ten days.”

       “More than ten days…” Li Zhenran repeated, somewhat distressed.

       With a smile, Luo Fei said, “You were reluctant to castrate it and now it has come to this, just bear with it. But I heard that a male cat may run around when it is in heat, you better watch it more strictly, and be careful that it ran away with a female cat. “

       Li Zhenruo looked at him coldly and thought that it was not funny at all: Thank you, I won’t run away with the female cat.

       Li Zhenran raised a hand and rubbed his thumb against his lips as if thinking.

       What Li Zhenruo was most afraid of was that Li Zhenran would give him help by castrating him, so he was trying to restrain himself and make himself not too obvious.

       As a result, Li Zhenran was probably afraid that he would run amok, so he still chained him in the room in the afternoon, with his toilet and rice bowl beside him.

       Li Zhenruo was very angry, he lay on his face for a long time, and then took a deep breath and told herself not to care about stupid humans. Because he has now been upgraded to a smart Meow2

       In the afternoon, Li Zhenran and Luo Fei went to climb the mountain. They had dinner in a small restaurant in a farmhouse on the mountain and had a meal of chicken pot with mushrooms. There was almost no seasoning, but the freshness of the mushrooms and the chicken was already tempting enough.

       When he left, Li Zhenran packed a chicken leg to take back, to comfort Li Zhenruo.

       At this time, Li Zhenruo was extremely irritable after being chained in the room for an afternoon. His claws scratched the carpet next to him, and then he wanted to scratch the sofa.

       The physiological impulses prompted him to run outside, where there would be a furry butt, instead of being locked in such a damnable place where he couldn’t go anywhere.

       When he heard the sound of Li Zhenran using the room key to open the door, Li Zhenruo suddenly became quiet. He told himself to calm down and let Li Zhenran release him first.

       Li Zhenran opened the door and came in, holding a lunch box in his hand.

       He didn’t know what Li Zhenruo was thinking at this time. He took the lunch box and walked to Li Zhenruo and squatted down. He opened the lunch box, put it next to his mouth, and then used chopsticks to tear off the soft boiled chicken thigh.

       Li Zhenruo swallowed a mouthful of saliva and decided to eat first.

       Li Zhenran fed him chicken, then took off the cat leash for him. He then got up and walked to the bathroom at ease.

       Li Zhenruo was still licking his mouth until Li Zhenran closed the bathroom door, then he turned and ran to the window.

       He had planned to sneak out. Although it didn’t make much sense, and he would be ruthlessly punished by Li Zhenran later, now Li Zhenruo felt that his brain was controlled by his body. Just like what he had always worried about, he would be completely tormented and turned into an animal because he was in heat, forgetting his identity as a human being.

       At this point, he no longer quite understand what he has to do.

       He jumped out of the window. It was pitch black everywhere. There were lights in the lake pavilion in the distance and the corridor leading to the shore, but Li Zhenruo didn’t plan to go there. There was a small forest behind the villa area. At night, only shadows of dense trees could be seen. The branches of the expended trees look like monsters showing their teeth, and there is empty silence.

       Li Zhenruo ran in that direction.

       There might be some mice, insects and snakes in the woods, because a cat suddenly entered and escaped in all directions, the body rubbed by the dead leaves on the ground made a creaking sound.

       Li Zhenruo didn’t stop and ran all the way to the deepest point. He felt that his whole body was hot as if something was about to burst out, and the bones of his limbs were also aching.

       He thought that he might not only be in heat but also had some other disease, perhaps a terminal illness of a cat, because he felt that he was about to die.

       His forehead was pounding and his heart was beating faster and faster. Li Zhenruo couldn’t bear it anymore and fell to the ground. His chest and abdomen were heaving violently, and he slowly closed his eyes.

       After an unknown period of time, maybe it was only a few minutes, but he felt like it lasted half a century. All those pains had subsided, and his heartbeat was gradually returning to normal.

       Li Zhenruo opened his eyes and tried to stand up, but found something was wrong. The proportions of his hands and feet were wrong, and he couldn’t get up on all fours in an instant. Everything was strange.

       He raised his paw and stretched it out in front of him, then his eyes widened in surprise, because he found that it was not the cat’s paw that he was used to seeing, but a human hand. He finally knew what was wrong. He turned over and stood up from the ground, he lowered his head to touch his body and found that he had changed back to a human form.

    This turning back into a human during the heat period was done in Actor’s Cat as well. Funny how convenient of a story element it is! Makes sense though- this is already uncomfortably close to having this human turned cat be attracted to actual cats! This is how you easily avoid that potential problem!

    Thanks for your hard work translating!
