Side Story 6

       Cheerful music still reverberated everywhere in the amusement park, but unfortunately, there was not a single visitor which made it strangely deserted.

       The giant panda said he had to go see his senior brother first, so he left slowly with clumsy steps.

       Li Zhenruo looked at his back and asked Xia Hongshen curiously, “Is the giant panda’s cultivation level insufficient? Why does it not change into human form?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “No.”

       Li Zhenruo was even more strange, “Then why?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “I don’t know. I didn’t ask him, you can ask yourself.”

       Li Zhenruo didn’t feel like asking him and turned his head to look at Li Zhenran, who was sitting on his shoulder, then turned back and shook his shoulders, trying to get him down.

       Li Zhenran jumped to the ground and looked up at him.

       Li Zhenruo hadn’t calmed down yet and turned around to see the huge Ferris wheel moving slowly, so he said to Xia Hongshen, “The master hasn’t arrived yet, right? I’ll just go around.”

       Xia Hongshen waved his hand, “Go.”

       Li Zhenruo walked toward the Ferris wheel, and Li Zhenran followed behind him. Although he couldn’t hear the footsteps, he knew that Li Zhenran was following so close and not far, and he felt a little soft-hearted. Li Zhenruo reached out and touched his butt and found that it was still painful there, and his heart hardened immediately.

       There was no staff on the Ferris wheel. He went in by himself, opened the door and sat in when the empty carriage turned to the bottom. At the same time, Li Zhenran also rushed in.

       Li Zhenruo moved for a while, but then he reached out and locked the door.

       Li Zhenran sat face to face with him.

       One person and one cat were quiet for a while. When the carriage turned to the middle, Li Zhenran jumped down, jumped to Li Zhenruo’s seat and sat down.

       Li Zhenruo looked out of the car window with one hand on his face.

       Li Zhenran moved his body silently and sat down next to Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenruo saw the smile on his face from the reflection in the glass window.

       After a brief silence, Li Zhenran raised a paw and placed it on Li Zhenruo’s leg.

       Li Zhenruo continued to remain calm.

       Li Zhenran then stood up, slowly climbed onto Li Zhenruo’s lap, and sat down.

       Li Zhenruo then looked down at him.

       Li Zhenran was also looking up at him.

       When the Ferris wheel reached the highest point, Li Zhenruo lowered his head and kissed his cat. Although the cat was reluctant, he closed his eyes and touched his lips.

       Before the kiss was over, Li Zhenruo’s cell phone rang. It was Xia Hongshen who called and asked him to hurry over. The Master Yunshen he invited had already arrived.

       The speed of Yun Po’s arrival was very fast, which was beyond everyone’s expectations.

       While Li Zhenruo hoped that Yun Po really had a way to resolve Li Zhenran’s current situation, he also regretted that Li Zhenran became a cat in only just one day.

       It was a very happy thing to hold a furry Li Zhenran.

       After they got off the Ferris wheel, Li Zhenruo walked toward the depths of the amusement park according to Xia Hongshen’s instructions. There was the management office of the amusement park, which was an office in a two-story building.

       Li Zhenruo hurried over with Li Zhenran in his arms and saw a delicate and pretty monk sitting in front of the desk in the large office on the first floor, holding a cup of hot tea in his hand and taking a sip lazily.

       “Master!” Li Zhenruo called out to Xia Hongshen who was sitting at the desk next to him.

       Xia Hongshen raised his lower jaw, “This is Master Yun Po.”

       Li Zhenruo walked over, put Li Zhenran on the table, and said, “Master, my second brother turned into a cat after eating an elixir of unknown origin.”

       Yun Po looked up at Xia Hongshen and said, “First settle the money you owe me.”

       Xia Hongshen was neither in a hurry nor angry. He stretched out his hand and pressed Li Zhenruo’s shoulder, “Apprentice.”

       Li Zhenruo was a little helpless and asked, “How much?”

       Yun Po took out his mobile phone from the monk’s robe, tapped it for a few seconds, and said, “There are still three thousand two hundred and seventy-eight accounts that have not been settled.”

       Li Zhenruo said, “It’s on my brother.”

       He spoke so forthrightly that Yun Po couldn’t help but look up at him.

       Li Zhenruo put his hand on the table, “Only if my brother can turn back into a human again. Otherwise, it would be a waste of time to say anything, wouldn’t it?”

       When he heard this, Yun Po stared at his cat on the table for a while and said, “If I can turn him back into a human, add another two thousand, making a total of five thousand two hundred and seventy-eight, will you make a deal?”

       Li Zhenruo glanced at Li Zhenran and said, “Deal!”

       Yun Po smiled with satisfaction and said to Li Zhenran, “Stretch out your hand.”

       Li Zhenran stretched out a paw.

       Yun Po caught his pulse, released his hand after a while and said to him, “Open your mouth.”

       Li Zhenran opened his mouth to let him see.

       Li Zhenruo frowned slightly and asked Xia Hongshen in a low voice, “Is this friend of yours okay or not?”

       Before Xia Hongshen spoke, Yun Po raised his head and gave him a blank look.

       Afterwards, Yun Po dipped his fingers in some tea and drew a simple circle on the table, letting Li Zhenran stand in the middle.

       After Li Zhenran stood in, the magic circle seemed to flicker with golden light and then disappeared.

       Yun Po looked at the reaction of the magic circle, touched his chin with one hand and said thoughtfully, “It’s not that he turned into a cat.”

       Li Zhenruo and Xia Hongshen looked at him at the same time.

       “Then what is it?” Li Zhenruo asked.

       “Probably a dog,” someone said as he walked in, pushing the door open from the outside.

       Several people turned their heads to look and saw that the person who came in was Luo Fei, and there was a giant panda with Luo Fei, half a step behind him, followed Luo Fei into the office.

       Yun Po “tsk” and said, “Don’t talk nonsense if you don’t understand. He is still a person.”

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t help but pull up a chair and sit closer to Yun Po and ask, “If he’s still a human, then why would he become this way?”

       Yun Po said, “I haven’t seen the elixir you mentioned, and I don’t know what it looks like, but his body is actually a human body, not the cat we’ve seen.”

       With a smile on his face, Luo Fei sat beside the desk and reached out to touch Li Zhenran’s head, but Li Zhenran flicked his tail and deflected his hand. He retracted his hand and said, “Not at all well behaved.”

       Li Zhenruo quickly reached out and pulled Li Zhenran over to hold him in his arms, preventing Luo Fei from touching him again.

       Yun Po reached for a pen and wrote and drew on the sticky note in front of him, but if they looked closely, they could see that he was just drawing something meaningless and irrelevant.

       As he drew, he said, “He appeared to have properties that are different from his own essence. This looks more like a bluff.”

       “Oh,” Xia Hongshen said suddenly, “I see.”

       Li Zhenruo asked, “What?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “Taishang Laojun has all kinds of strange things in the alchemy furnace. I have heard that there is a kind of medicinal pill that has the effect of blinding the eyes.”

       Li Zhenruo was still curious, “What would it become?”

       Xia Hongshen shrugged, “I’ve only heard of it, but I haven’t seen it. What will it look like? There are too many things in the furnace of Taishang Laojun. I’m afraid he may not be able to pinpoint it.”

       All eyes fell on Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenran sat calmly on Li Zhenruo’s lap without blushing or panting, accepting everyone’s attention.

       Li Zhenruo asked, “When will he return to his original form?”

       Yun Po said, “Since it is a blinding method, it is only supported by the spiritual power in the medicinal pill. It is estimated that it will not take too long, and the blinding method will naturally be broken when the spiritual power is exhausted.”

       “Ah—” At this moment, the panda next to him screamed and looked like he was hit hard, “He will not always be this way?”

       Yun Po said, “Of course, but you can go and ask Taishang Laojun for more elixir to keep him like this.”

       “Taishang Laojun?” The panda pointed his finger on his lips thoughtfully.

       Li Zhenruo said to him, “Don’t think about it! Even if he has always been like this, he will not be yours!”

       The giant panda seemed to have just reacted and was stunned for a moment and then looked tangled.

       Li Zhenruo was still worried and asked Yun Po, “Master, are you sure he can change back without doing anything?”

       Yun Po said, “It’s just a trick, how long can it last? If you’re really worried, I can help you put up a talisman and use up the remaining elixir spirit in his body, but the price is more than that.”

       Li Zhenruo was not reluctant to give up so much money, but after hearing what Yun Po said, he suddenly thought that it would be better to take this Li Zhenran back and watch it for a few more days, and it would not be possible to wait until then.

       But he didn’t want to reveal his thoughts to Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenran stretched out his claws and grabbed him, probably meaning to let Yunshen form a formation to exhaust the medicinal power of the elixir now, but Li Zhenruo pretended that he didn’t know, and after a moment of contemplation said, he said, “Then I will go back and observe for a few days.”

       Yun Po nodded and stretched out his hand to ask for money, “Give me the money first.”

       Li Zhenruo said to him, “He hasn’t become a human yet. Master, you can leave your account number, and when he returns to human form, we will you give you money as soon as possible?”

       Yun Po looked at him for a while, and said, “Then you give me a call, and I will text you the account number.”

       Li Zhenruo heard the words, put Li Zhenran on the table and touched the mobile phone. He took out his mobile phone and dialled the number that Yun Po said, and hung up when Yun Po’s phone rang. Then he looked up and found Li Zhenran was gone from the table.

       “Where’s my brother?” Li Zhenruo suddenly stood up.

       Xia Hongshen pointed outside, “He was carried away by a giant panda.”

       “Ah—” Li Zhenruo shouted, “Why didn’t you tell me?” After speaking, he suddenly ran outside.

       The giant panda carried Li Zhenran and ran, but the speed was not slow at all.

       He hadn’t really thought about where he could carry Li Zhenran, but when he heard that the black and white Garfield might turn back into a human, he rushed out with him in his arms and ran all the way to the front of the Ferris wheel. The panda stopped to gasp for breath. When he saw that the cat in his arms didn’t move at all, he said, “Let’s go ride the Ferris wheel.”

       The panda thought this was probably their last romance.

       But perhaps, not only they would have three more minutes, what if the cat fell in love with him? He knew that he was so cute, and there were not many creatures in this world that could resist his charm, right?

       Li Zhenran did not agree or object but was carried into the Ferris wheel by the giant panda.

       They sat inside the Ferris wheel. The giant panda touched Li Zhenran’s head, suddenly became sad, and pressed his face to the top of his head and said, “Is there another cat with such a round face in this world?”

       In fact, there were, but the colour was not as pleasing to him as this one.

       Li Zhenran was a little breathless in his embrace and suddenly stretched out his paws and pushed him.

       The giant panda loosened a little in surprise. Li Zhenran struggled out of his arms and ran to the window to look down with his face against the glass.

       “What’s wrong?” The giant panda also looked in the same direction and was surprised to find that a cat had climbed over the vast steel frame of the Ferris wheel in their direction.

       The Ferris wheel was constantly rotating, although the speed was very slow, and the steel frame structure was complex, but they were still moving up, and the height here was terrible.

       The yellow-and-white Garfield climbed hard, seemingly unaware of the danger, only looking in the direction of his target and rushing up quickly.

       Xia Hongshen, Luo Fei, and Yun Po chased under the Ferris wheel and looked up at the heights.

       While the giant panda was surprised, it was also worried for Li Zhenruo.

       Li Zhenran stared in Li Zhenruo’s direction without saying a word.

       When the carriage turned to the top of the Ferris wheel, Li Zhenruo finally climbed from the steel frame to the outside of the carriage. Li Zhenran ignored the danger and opened the carriage door, and Li Zhenruo rushed in at once.

       Li Zhenruo threw Li Zhenran to the ground, followed by Li Zhenran but a rollover to pounce him underneath, rubbing his face with his face.

       Two cats hugged each other tightly.

       The giant panda stared at them blankly and suddenly burst into tears. He thought that he might probably lose his love and did so twice at the same time.

       The Ferris wheel rotated down, and Luo Fei opened the door and pulled them all out.

       The giant panda was still crying, and when he saw Luo Fei, he stretched out his arms to hug him and said, “Senior brother, woo woo—”

       Luo Fei patted his back and said, “Go and cry.”

       Xia Hongshen smiled and said to Li Zhenruo, who turned back into a human form and hugged Li Zhenran, “Not bad.”

       Only then did Li Zhenruo turn to look at the Ferris wheel with some fear and said, “I’m afraid that my brother will be influenced by him…” Then he looked at the giant panda who was still crying and said, “I think I may have thought too much. “

       When sending them away, the panda raised a hand and waved, “I wish you happiness.”

       Li Zhenruo shouted to him, “You will find the panda you love.”

       The giant panda still looked resentful.

       After returning that day, Li Zhenran once again rejected Li Zhenruo’s courtship, but this time, instead of kicking him out of bed, he hugged him and kissed and licked him for a long time, then pushed him away lightly.

       On the third day after Li Zhenran became a cat, after rejecting Li Zhenruo’s plea five times, that morning, before Li Zhenruo woke up, he felt that he was being pressed on the bed.

       He reached out to touch his chest, and at first thought, he was touching cat hair, but later found that it felt wrong, and when he opened his eyes, he found that it was black hair.

       Li Zhenran raised his head from his chest and said to him, “Seeing that you have been dissatisfied with your desires for a few days, I will satisfy you today!”

       Li Zhenruo said “Ah—”, both pleasantly surprised and somewhat regretful, and finally chose not to continue to struggle and just lie down to enjoy it.
