Li Zhenruo grabbed Zhu Kai tightly, his original intention was to prevent Zhu Kai from taking Erhuang away.
However, Zhu Kai was also a ruthless man. He stretched out his hand to pull Li Zhenruo’s back, and he even pulled a handful of fur off him.
Li Zhenruo’s back was in pain and he loosened his grip afterwards. However, after he realised his fur had been pulled off, he went berserk and waved his sharp claws at Zhu Kai.
Zhu Kai was in pain, and no longer showing mercy. He grabbed Li Zhenruo’s neck and pulled him away, and was about to throw him to the ground. In the end, Li Zhenran grabbed his arm and snatched Li Zhenruo back from his hand.
Luckily, Zhu Kai’s face was fine, but the claw marks on his neck and behind his ears were clearly visible, and there was even some blood.
Just now, Li Zhenruo was almost thrown to the ground by Zhu Kai. At this time, he couldn’t help but feel a little scared as he lay in Li Zhenran’s arms and panted slightly.
Li Zhenran gently stroked his back and said softly, “It’s alright.”
“Zhu Kai!” Li Zhentai’s voice sounded from behind them, with some fierce hatred.
No matter what the purpose of Zhu Kai’s releasing the photo at the wedding, none of the family would be grateful to him. Including Li Zhentai, who until now still felt uneasy and afraid that others would see the photo at that time. He was afraid that the matter of his cuckold had been spread out.
Zhu Kai sat on the ground, clutching his neck in pain. After a while, he stretched out his hand and saw that his hands were covered in blood.
At first, the workers who thought that a thief had entered the house saw Zhu Kai, so they left quietly, leaving only Wang Ma to cry out in distress to see Zhu Kai caught up in such a state, “Oh, no! How did you get into this state?”
Zhu Kai made a hissing sound and stared at the cat in Li Zhenran’s arms.
Li Zhenran ignored him at this time, lowered his head to look at the injury on Li Zhenruo’s back, and then gave Zhu Kai a cold look. Li Zhenruo was lying in Li Zhenran’s arms and pretended to be pitiful, but he really was pitiful. Even though Zhu Kai looked miserable, he was also in pain.
Wang Ma ran to Zhu Kai’s side, squatted down to look at the injury on his face, and said, “What should I do? Do we have to go to the hospital? Do we need a rabies vaccine?”
Li Zhenruo looked over with some displeasure thinking that if someone had rabies, it was more likely that Zhu Kai, that madman, the one that had rabies! He was so innocent and cute, how could he look like he had rabies?
Only Erhuang didn’t know what was going on and circled around Zhu Kai excitedly.
Li Jianglin frowned and asked drily, “What are you doing here?”
Zhu Kai lifted his head to look at him and said, somewhat pitifully, “I come back to see my dog.”
Wang Ma persuaded, “Let’s get his wounds treated first.”
Li Jianglin squeezed his cane tightly and said, “Come in first.”
Wang Ma went to find the first aid kit at home. The whole family sat on the sofa and stared at Zhu Kai, who was covering his neck.
Under the gaze of everyone, Zhu Kai didn’t seem to feel anything wrong. He couldn’t help but reach out to touch the wound on his neck and then stared at Li Zhenruo fiercely.
This time, he originally planned to come back and take Erhuang with him, but he didn’t expect a cat to ruin his plan.
When he thought of this, Zhu Kai’s eyes became more and more fierce.
Li Zhenruo didn’t show weakness and stared back at him.
Wang Ma brought the first aid kit and sat down to treat the wound on Zhu Kai’s neck. Zhu Kai was unable to endure the pain and kept saying “ouch ouch ouch” with his mouth.
Li Jianglin looked serious and called out Zhu Kai’s name, “Zhu Kai.”
Zhu Kai seemed to know what he was going to say, and while baring his mouth to call out in pain, he said, “Don’t say it, I know what you are going to say. But to be honest, you can’t blame me for your son hooking up with your daughter-in-law. Above all, I am just an elder who can’t bear to keep my nephew in the dark, unlike you, the father, who knew about it long ago but kept it to himself, and had to let his son get married.”
As soon as he finished speaking, both Wen Chun and Li Zhentai looked at Li Jianglin in surprise.
Li Zhentai stood up even more, “Dad, what did he say?”
Li Jianglin didn’t change his face, “I am doing it for your own good.”
Li Zhentai asked, “You already knew that she had an affair with the third child?” When he spoke, he pointed at Wen Chun.
Zhu Kai lowered his head and snickered.
Wang Ma, who gave him the medicine, obviously noticed it, and couldn’t help but hit him on the arm and said angrily, “Zhu Kai! How can you do this!”
Li Zhenran still held Li Zhenruo and sat quietly, only watching Li Zhentai unconsciously straighten his back as he stood up.
Li Zhenruo felt that although Li Zhenran was gently stroking the top of his head, his attention was on Li Zhentai. He was sure that if Li Zhentai did something extreme to Li Jianglin, Li Zhenran would definitely stand up and stop him.
Li Jianglin closed his eyes and did not speak.
Li Zhenruo suddenly felt that although Li Jianglin still looked calm, he must have had a little difficulty coping with the current situation. Tonight, he walked outside alone for so long, and he must have been distressed because of the affairs of his sons.
Li Zhentai couldn’t hold back his anger. He couldn’t care about his attitude now, and shouted, “What is it for my good? This marriage was arranged by you, I have nothing to say, but knowing that this woman is cheating on me, you still insist on me marrying her! You said it was for my own good?! Dad, am I your own son? Actually, only the second and third are your sons, right?”
Li Jianglin’s brows furrowed instantly, and he said, “What nonsense are you talking about?”
Li Zhentai clenched his fists tightly as he glanced at Li Jianglin, then at Wen Chun, before finally slamming his fist hard on the coffee table. He then said, “Maybe I am the most unnecessary one in the Li family. It’s better for me to leave.”
After he said that, Li Zhentai turned around and walked outside.
Li Zhenran stood up and called out to Li Jianglin, “Dad?” It meant whether he wanted to chase him back.
Li Jianglin shook his head slowly and said, “He has resentment in his heart, let him go, I will talk to him later.”
Li Zhenran nodded when he heard the words. He saw that Li Jianglin’s face did not look very good, so he walked over and squatted beside him and said, “Dad, it’s getting late, you should go to rest first.”
Li Jianglin was indeed really tired today. He glanced at Li Zhenran and didn’t want to say anything more. He stood up with crutches, and then said to Wen Chun, who was still sitting on the sofa in a daze, “Go and rest too.”
Wen Chun was in an awkward situation, forced a smile to hide her emotions, nodded and said, “Good night, Dad.” Then she took the lead in walking toward the stairs.
Li Zhenran saw that Li Jianglin was planning to go back to the room, he held the cat in one hand and his arm with the other.
Unexpectedly, Li Jianglin gently pushed his hand away, “No need.” He was probably still brooding about what happened in Li Zhenran’s office today.
At this time, Zhu Kai stood up from the sofa and walked to Li Jianglin’s side to help him, “I’ll help you to rest.”
Li Jianglin moved more, waved his hand vigorously and said, “Get lost.”
Zhu Kai quickly retracted his hand and stood there watching Li Jianglin slowly walk towards the room with a somewhat innocent expression.
But when Li Jianglin disappeared, the innocence on his face was put away, and he said, “I’m not going to sleep here today, do you guys have no problem with that?”
Of course, the remaining Wang Ma and Li Zhenran had no problem.
When he saw that Li Zhenran was about to leave, Zhu Kai stopped him and said, “Zhenran, there doesn’t seem to be any conflict between us, right?”
Li Zhenruo looked at Zhu Kai angrily.
Li Zhenran scratched Li Zhenruo’s chin and said softly, “There is still a deep hatred between us. Just you wait and I will settle the account with you.”
This made Zhu Kai stunned for a moment. When Li Zhenran carried the cat up the stairs, he shouted, “What do you mean? Because of that little boy?”
Li Zhenran didn’t answer him and went straight upstairs.
Wang Ma sighed heavily while packing her things, and spoke with some tears, “What’s going on? The family is in such a mess.”
Zhu Kai heard the words and walked over to sit next to her and put his arms around her back, saying, “It’s alright, don’t cry.”
Wang Ma hit him, but felt distressed when she saw the wound on his neck, and said, “Show me the wound again.”
Li Zhenran took Li Zhenruo back to the room, sat on the edge of the bed and let him lie on his lap to see the injury on his back, one of which was indeed ripped off and looked a little bald, although it was not too serious, at that time it must be painful.
“I can’t see clearly like this, should I shave your back?” Li Zhenran asked.
Li Zhenruo suddenly lay on his lap and appeared in a human form, and said, “Are you crazy?!”
Li Zhenran saw that his back was a little red and swollen, raised his hand and patted his round and fair buttocks, and said, “I’ll go get you some medicine.”
Li Zhenran went to get a tube of cool and swollen ointment, and still let Li Zhenruo lie on his leg. He dipped the ointment with his fingers and rubbed him on the red and swollen back.
Li Zhenruo was lying on his stomach and complained, “Zhu Kai is really ruthless.”
Li Zhenran heard the words and said, “You are not softer than him.”
Li Zhenruo muttered, “I knew he would come back and take Erhuang away.”
Li Zhenran replied, “If he wants to leave with the dog, you can leave him alone. Dad won’t do anything to him anyway.”
Li Zhenruo put his head on one hand and thoughtfully, “Why do you think your father is so indulgent towards Zhu Kai?”
Li Zhenran asked him, “What are you implying to me?”
Li Zhenruo got up from him, sat cross-legged beside the bed, and said to Li Zhenran, “Have you ever wondered since you were a child?”
Li Zhenran looked at him with a half-smile.
Li Zhenruo knew that he just didn’t want to say it, so he took the initiative to say, “When I was young, I thought maybe it was because Zhu Kai was Zhu Yun’s younger brother. Since Li Jianglin loved Zhu Yun all his life, and he didn’t like my biological mother, it was understandable that he was very partial to Zhu Kai. Later, when I got older, I felt that no matter how partial he was, a brother-in-law and even his own son were incomparable to him. So I wondered if Zhu Kai was Li Jianglin’s own son. But it’s not right, if he was Li Jianglin’s son, Li Jianglin had no reason not to accept him or not let him enter Yunlin.”
“So what about—” Li Zhenran looked at him.
Li Zhenruo said, “I think, don’t Zhu Kai and Zhu Yun look alike? Do you think to substitute for Zhu Yun, your father was…” After he said this, Li Zhenruo couldn’t go on anymore. To be honest, he was not willing to think in this direction, no matter what, after all, he had always regarded Li Jianglin as his father in his heart.
Li Zhenran didn’t comment on his words and asked him, “Do you think it’s like that?”
Li Zhenruo thought silently for a while, and finally said, “It shouldn’t be, it’s just me who was thinking wildly.”
Li Zhenran turned his head and glanced behind him, “Does it hurt?”
Li Zhenruo said, “It doesn’t hurt much, just ignore it.”
Li Zhenran stretched out his arms and hugged him to lie down, “Then let’s go to sleep.”
