Li Zhenran was very unhappy that Li Zhenruo carried him out the door, but unfortunately, he had no better and more convenient way, and finally let Li Zhenruo carry him into the car.
While starting the car, Li Zhenruo put on a Bluetooth headset and called Song Jun, and the two made an appointment to meet at the zoo’s gate.
There was an event at the zoo early morning on the first day of the New Year. In the morning, the residents nearby took their children to the zoo to participate in the events. It was over before noon, and the park was closed in the afternoon.
It was already noon when Li Zhenruo and the others arrived, and they only saw two or three people coming out of the zoo, but almost no one went in. Sure enough, Li Zhenruo and Song Jun were stopped by the staff shortly after entering, saying that the event was over and the zoo was preparing to close and asked them to leave.
Song Jun pulled the staff member and whispered a few words, and the staff member turned to look at Li Zhenruo, then turned and left.
Li Zhenruo was a little puzzled, “Is your sphere of influence so big?” It seemed like any random person he met on the road could be a demon.
Song Jun said, “It’s not that big, but it’s more than you can imagine. Let’s go.”
He took Li Zhenruo to the giant panda house.
Li Zhenran stayed quietly in Li Zhenruo’s arms with a serious expression.
The giant panda pavilion in the zoo was renovated last year. The whole panda pavilion was clean, and the glass was polished and transparent.
Li Zhenruo followed behind Song Jun, leaned against the glass and looked inside, and saw three giant pandas inside; one was lying on the rockery, the other was lying down and sleeping, and the other was sitting and nibbling on bamboo.
Li Zhenruo found that he couldn’t tell which one was the giant panda last night.
In the end, the giant panda sitting and nibbling on the bamboo was the first to notice them, and when he raised his head to look at them, he was suddenly stunned, his mouth opened, and the bamboo in his mouth fell.
Li Zhenruo asked Song Jun, “Is it him?”
Song Jun also pressed himself against the glass and nodded, “En,” before waving to the panda.
Li Zhenran also straightened up slightly and looked inside.
The giant pandas were still stunned, looking at them with open mouths.
Li Zhenruo asked strangely, “What happened to him?”
Song Jun obviously didn’t understand either, so he raised his hand and knocked on the glass.
The giant panda who had been sleeping was awakened by his knock and lazily raised its head to look at them before falling back to sleep again.
The other giant panda, who was dazed in place, finally moved. It took another bite of the bamboo, patted its chest with his paws, and slowly crawled in their direction.
Song Jun seemed to have a good relationship with the giant panda. He pressed against the glass and said, “I brought that round-faced cat to see you.”
Li Zhenruo gave Song Jun a dissatisfied look.
The giant panda didn’t seem to hear it. He climbed to the front of the glass, stood up against the glass, patted his front paws on the glass, and stared intently in Li Zhenruo’s direction. However, he was not looking at Li Zhenruo but at Li Zhenran in his arms.
Li Zhenran was inexplicable and tilted his head slightly.
The giant panda wiped the glass with its paws, looked at Li Zhenran seriously for a while, and suddenly covered its chest with both paws and fell backwards.
Song Jun and Li Zhenruo were both startled, and Li Zhenran’s eyes widened.
After the giant panda lay down on the ground, it kept covering its chest and started rolling from side to side, making a “woo woo” sound from its mouth.
Song Jun patted the glass nervously, “Giant panda?”
The giant panda rolled for a while and finally stopped. He flexibly rolled over from the ground, lay down in front of the glass, pointed at Li Zhenran and said, “Give him to me.”
Li Zhenruo hugged Li Zhenran, moved back more than ten steps in a row and looked at the giant panda warily.
Song Jun was confused, “What’s with that?”
The panda said, “It’s real this time. It’s love at first sight.”
“Huh?” Song Jun looked surprised, then suddenly realised, turned his head to look at Li Zhenran in Li Zhenruo’s arms.
Li Zhenran’s face seemed to darken even more. He breathed heavily and was suppressing his anger.
Li Zhenruo hugged Li Zhenran tightly and said, “Don’t you come over. I won’t give it to you.”
The giant panda patted the glass, and he seemed a little dazed, “Isn’t this cat the one from last night?”
Song Jun pointed at Li Zhenruo, “Sober up. The one holding the cat was the cat last night. Didn’t you fall in love with him at first sight?”
The giant panda scratched his head in distress, “I was originally, but this black and white one was made just like the lover of my dreams.”
Li Zhenruo heard the words and said, “Don’t even think about it!”
“Huh?” The giant panda grimaced.
Song Jun said in a low voice, “I told you last night that Garfield is my master’s apprentice. The Garfield he holds is his lover, so you should give up.”
When the giant panda heard Song Jun’s words, his disappointment was immediately written on his face, “Why is this…”
Song Jun comforted him, “Your species is different. You should stop thinking about it, and just find a giant panda at ease.”
Although he said that, the giant panda didn’t seem to give up altogether. He kept staring at Li Zhenran, and after a while, he asked Li Zhenruo strangely, “Why do you want to be with a cat exactly like you?”
Li Zhenruo suddenly burst out, “You still ask me! He just ate the medicine pill you gave me last night and became like this. He is a person! Not a cat!”
Song Jun put his index finger to his lips, “Shh—don’t attract the staff’s attention!”
The giant panda opened its mouth in wonder, “Huh?”
Later, Song Jun also said, “That black and white Garfield, whose name is Li Zhenran, was originally a person, but he ate the elixir you gave to Zhenruo last night, and he became like this.”
The giant panda stretched out his claws and scratched his butt, “Isn’t that an elixir to improve cultivation?”
Song Jun shook his head, “It doesn’t seem that simple.”
The giant panda was stunned, “I don’t know. I bought it at an auction, and I thought it was an elixir to improve one’s cultivation.”
Song Jun looked at him suspiciously, “You really don’t know?”
The panda was a little aggrieved, “Chunjun, you suspect me.”
Song Jun asked him, “Then how do you explain why he turned into this colour?”
The giant panda scratched his chin, “Yeah, that’s weird.”
Li Zhenruo put Li Zhenran on the ground and said to him, “You are not allowed to go there!” Then he walked to the glass and asked the panda, “Why did you give me that elixir?”
The giant panda calmly said, “I like you.”
Li Zhenruo said, “You change your heart so fast. Your love is worthless.”
The giant panda was hit hard and looked at Li Zhenruo with wide eyes.
When he looked at the panda’s reaction, Li Zhenruo also felt that his words were too harsh, but no matter what, he had to dispel the panda’s idea of Li Zhenran as soon as possible, so he said, “We are trying to find a way to change my second brother back to his original form. He was not a cat at all. He looks like a cat exactly like me, but the fur is black and white, so we wondered if it had something to do with you.”
The giant panda said aggrievedly, “It has nothing to do with me.”
Li Zhenruo said, “Then do you have a way to make him return to the original?”
The giant panda looked in the direction of Li Zhenran.
Li Zhenruo blocked his sight so that he could not see it.
The panda said, “Let me see it.”
Song Jun asked him at this time, “You don’t have a solution, do you?”
The panda looked down at Song Jun and admitted, “I don’t even know what’s going on. Of course, I had no solution.”
Although he knew it was likely that the giant panda had nothing to do with it, Li Zhenruo still couldn’t help but be a little disappointed.
“Hey!” The giant panda stopped him, “I can’t go out now. Let’s go to the amusement park tonight. I’ll study what’s going on. After listening to you guys, I also think it has something to do with me.”
Li Zhenruo looked at him suspiciously, “You won’t have any thoughts on my second brother, will you?”
The giant panda lowered his head, “Um—” after thinking for a while, he raised his head and said to him, “I don’t like him anymore when he becomes a human.”
Li Zhenruo warned him, “You are not allowed to change your mind even if he can’t become a human!”
The giant panda pouted and poked his fingers on the glass. He didn’t answer Li Zhenruo for a long time and finally raised his head reluctantly and said, “Let’s talk about it at night.”
