Chapter 22

       On Friday, Li Zhenran came back earlier than usual in the afternoon. He said something to Wang Ma on the first floor, but Li Zhenruo didn’t hear it clearly.

       After a while, Li Zhenran took Wang Ma up to the third floor. Wang Ma entered Li Zhenran’s room, and Li Zhenran untied the cat leash on Li Zhenruo’s body.

       Of course, his collar still couldn’t be removed.

       But it was enough for Li Zhenruo to roll on the ground comfortably.

       Li Zhenran picked up Li Zhenruo and walked into the room.

       Li Zhenruo saw that Wang Ma was helping Li Zhenran to pack up, but she didn’t pack too much, and just took a small box. After packing up, Wang Ma handed the box to Li Zhenran and said, “Be careful on the road.”

       Li Zhenran nodded, “I know.”

       At the same time, Li Zhenran’s driver came upstairs and took down all Li Zhenruo’s daily necessities.

       Li Zhenruo guessed in his heart that Li Zhenran was going to take him out, but where? Could it be that he was sent to be neutered, and then he needed to stay in the hospital for a few days? So Li Zhenran packed up and planned to accompany him to the pet hospital?

       No!

       Li Zhenruo began to struggle.

       Li Zhenran looked down at him coldly.

       Li Zhenruo was immediately frightened by his gaze and did not dare to move.

       Li Zhenran went downstairs with a small suitcase in one hand and Li Zhenruo in the other. The driver had packed up Li Zhenruo’s daily necessities and drove the car to the gate to wait for him.

       He got into the car and put Li Zhenruo in the back seat at the same time.

       The driver asked him, “Second young master, shall we leave?”

       Li Zhenran said, “Let’s go.”

       Li Zhenruo wanted to ask them where they were going, but he couldn’t. He felt uneasy. What he was most afraid of was that Li Zhenran would take him to castrate him. Li Zhenruo lay down on the seat, and after lying down for a while, he felt uneasy, he got up and moved to Li Zhenran’s lap.

       Li Zhenran reached out and rested his hand on Li Zhenruo’s back.

       The car drove for a while, and when Li Zhenruo stood up and looked out the car window, he realized that they were not going to the pet hospital to cut up his little dingding, but were heading out of the city.

       Thinking of the luggage that Li Zhenran had packed, Li Zhenruo realized that Li Zhenran was probably going to take a two-day vacation during the weekend, and this time he brought him with him.

       He still remember that Li Zhenran often went out for short-term vacations in the past. At that time, he had to ask Li Zhenran to sign for him for an urgent project. He also personally went to a resort hotel in the countryside and found Li Zhenran who was fishing.

       Like an old man, Li Zhenruo thought at that time.

       But today, the sudden thought that he might be going on vacation with Li Zhenran, made Li Zhenruo felt better all of a sudden.

       Well, he still has a lot of things to do, and he hasn’t had time to think about how to get back Li Zhenzi, but who cares about him, let’s have a good weekend first.

       Away from Li’s house to the green suburbs, with fresh air and beautiful scenery, and Li Zhenran accompanied him.

       Li Zhenruo lay on Li Zhenran’s lap and closed his eyes comfortably.

       It took them two hours to reach their destination, which was a large forested villa, with dense mountains in the back and a cool lake in front.

       Li Zhenruo knew this place. It was a high-class vacation club, and Li Zhenran seemed to come here often.

       The car was parked in the villa. Li Zhenran carried Li Zhenruo out of the car and held him in his arms.

       Now in this unfamiliar environment, Li Zhenran did not choose to put him on the ground. In fact, since he escaped and was caught back, Li Zhenran was reluctant to let him go easily most of the time, perhaps because he was afraid that he would run away again.

       This made Li Zhenruo feel a little guilty.

       The villa was located by the lake, and only a few minutes walk from the parking lot, Li Zhenruo saw a lake. The wind with water vapor blew on his face, his fluffy fur and whiskers swayed slightly together and it maked him a little itchy. He raised his paw and scratched his face.

       “Zhenran.”

       Li Zhenruo heard someone calling Li Zhenran’s name, he looked up and saw a tall and handsome man standing not far away, smiling at them.

       Luo Fei?

       Li Zhenruo was simply a little stunned when he recognized the man’s identity. Luo Fei was a businessman. In Li Jianglin’s words, he was young and promising. Luo Fei started to operate the logistics industry more than ten years ago. It coincided with the popularity of online shopping, and the logistics industry began to flourish. Today, the logistics outlets he has established have spread all over the country, and they were growing stronger and stronger.

       Luo Fei and the Li family had some business cooperation before, but Luo Fei’s personality was relatively reclusive. He wasn’t even interested to join various business activities, so Li Zhenruo has no way to befriend him.

       But he didn’t expect that Li Zhenran would invite Luo Fei to spend the weekend together here today.

       Li Zhenruo knows that Yunlin was trying e-commerce recently. If it developed, the cooperation with Luo Fei would be particularly important. It seems that this was not just a vacation for Li Zhenran, but he was also trying to win over business partners.

       Luo Fei and Li Zhenran shook hands casually and then let go. It seemed that the two were quite familiar with each other.

       At this time, Luo Fei also noticed the cat that Li Zhenran was holding in his arms. He bent down slightly to look at Li Zhenruo and said, “A Garfield?”

       Li Zhenran smiled and replied, “Yes.”

       Li Zhenruo felt that Luo Fei was looking at him very carefully, and was somewhat baffled.

       However, Luo Fei had already stood up straight, put his hands in the pockets of his casual trousers, and said, “It’s cute.”

       Then Luo Fei turned around and walked with Li Zhenran along the lake towards the opposite of the villa complex. As they walked, Luo Fei said, “I brought a friend here today.”

       “Oh?” Li Zhenran replied.

       They walked not far when they saw a man standing by the lake.

       Li Zhenruo was curious, he stretched his neck to look, and saw that it was a handsome young man. The man was wearing a white long-sleeved shirt with sky blue long jeans underneath, and his legs are long and straight.

       “Xiao Feng!” Luo Fei called him.

       The young man turned to look at them, saw Luo Fei beckoning to him and walked over.

       Luo Fei introduced him, “This is Li Zhenran, you should have heard the name; this is Feng Junyuan, a surgeon at the Affiliated Hospital of C University, a friend of mine.”

       Li Zhenran stretched out his hand, “Hello.”

       Feng Junyuan looked indifferent, shook hands with Li Zhenran, and said, “Hello, Mr. Li.”

       As they shook hands, Feng Junyuan looked at Li Zhenruo in Li Zhenran’s arms.

       Li Zhenruo was startled when he saw that Feng Junyuan suddenly brought his handsome and fair face closer, and tilted his head back slightly.

       After he looked at Li Zhenruo for a while, Feng Junyuan turned to look at Luo Fei. Luo Fei put one hand on Feng Junyuan’s shoulder with a smile, and said, “This is Zhenran’s cat, what’s its name?”

       Li Zhenran said, “Dumpling.”

       Luo Fei said with a smile, “Sounds so cute. Let’s go to dinner first, there is still more time after dinner, so let’s talk slowly.”

       They ate dinner at the large open-air restaurant by the lake. The food was mostly delicious fresh river fish, including a lot of cold-water fish.

       Li Zhenran specifically instructed the kitchen to cook a small fish for Li Zhenruo.

       As they ate, Li Zhenran finally put Li Zhenruo on the ground and let him eat by himself.

       Luo Fei was a little curious and asked Li Zhenran, “Won’t this cat run?”

       Li Zhenran said, “It ran away once and I caught it back.”

       Luo Fei was a little amused when he heard the words, “People often say that raising a pet will bring out affections. Just like it was one’s own family, one will not be able to let go. It seems that this cat is already very important to you.”

       Li Zhenran said calmly, “It’s mine.”

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t help looking up at him. He shrunk his neck and felt cool.

       Dr. Feng had been very quiet, but at this moment he suddenly asked, “Why does it run away?”

       Li Zhenran looked at him, a little strange, “How am I supposed to know?”

       Luo Fei put his hand on Feng Junyuan’s shoulder and said with a smile, “Xiao Feng is full of love for small animals. He said that he can communicate with many small animals. Do you believe it?”

       Li Zhenran heard what he said, smiled and said nothing, obviously not believing it.

       Li Zhenruo glanced at Feng Junyuan curiously.

       Li Zhenran put one hand on his cheek and drank some beer in the evening. He was a little drunk now. He thought about it and said, “Maybe it’s because I said I would castrate it.”

       Feng Junyuan was startled.

       Luo Fei laughed out loud, leaning his head on Feng Junyuan’s shoulder.

       Li Zhenran gently touched the edge of the bowl with chopsticks in his hand, and asked Feng Junyuan, “Xiao Feng, can you help me ask him, did he slip out of the house because I wanted to castrate him?”

       Li Zhenruo was nibbling his fish quietly, but when he heard Li Zhenran’s words, he didn’t dare to let out his breath and raised his head to look at him.

       Li Zhenran also turned to look at Li Zhenruo.

       At this moment, Feng Junyuan suddenly stood up, he walked up to Li Zhenruo and squatted down, leaning closer to Li Zhenruo, who seemed to be smelling him with his nose.

       Li Zhenruo wanted to hide at first, but then thought about what he was afraid of, he shrugged his nose and pretended to smell Feng Junyuan.

       Feng Junyuan looked a little puzzled, looked at Li Zhenruo for a while, and asked him, “Do you want to be neutered?”

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t express it, but the panic at that moment could not be concealed.

       Feng Junyuan looked at his eyes, stood up and said to Li Zhenran, “Mr Li, you’d better not take your cat to be neutered, otherwise, he run away next time.”

       Li Zhenran looked at him with a slightly puzzled expression, and asked, “It can understand people’s words? I mean I just mentioned it, but I haven’t taken it to the hospital yet, but it has slipped away.”

       Feng Junyuan said, “Many animals are smarter than you think.”

       When Li Zhenran heard this, he nodded and said, “Okay, I understand, I won’t take him to be neutered.”

       When Li Zhenruo heard his words, he exhaled a long breath and sat down on the ground.

       With a smile on his face, Luo Fei picked up his beer mug and said to Li Zhenran, “Come, have a drink.”

       Li Zhenran cooperated with him and raised the glass, “Cheers.”

    Castrating gets rid of the jewels, not the dingding, though I doubt that difference is enough to reassure Zhenruo. 😅 I’m intrigued by the new guy though. Fellow animal demon of some kind?

    Thanks for your hard work translating!
