Chapter 26

       In any case, he was locked up and couldn’t get out, so Li Zhenruo stayed at ease.

       He walked around Li Zhenran’s house and thought that Li Zhenran and Li Zhenzi were really different. Li Zhenzi’s house outside was probably used to keep women, but Li Zhenran’s place was clean and it looked like no one has lived there for a long time. It looked like someone has been hired to clean it on a regular basis.

       Li Zhenruo walked to the bathroom, and filled the bathtub with warm water, with the intention to take a bath.

       Today, he had been sitting in the car for a long time and had tossed a lot last night, so he still feel a little tired.

       Li Zhenruo took off his clothes and lay down in the bathtub, closing his eyes comfortably.

       This body was not his past body, but compared to the cat’s body, it was much easier to use. At least he can pick up things with his hands instead of poking around with his paws.

       After he soaked in the water for a long time, Li Zhenruo felt a little hot. He couldn’t help moving his legs and felt an impulse suddenly appear from the bottom to the top. He was stunned. After a while, Li Zhenruo reached out and touched his lower body.

       To be honest, he hasn’t done this kind of thing for a long time. Almost since he knew that he might not be Li Jianglin’s own son, he has been under a lot of pressure at that time, and he didn’t have the heart to think about it at all. Later, he became a little kitten and has not even thought about this.

       Li Zhenruo couldn’t help to sigh when he suddenly felt a sensation in his body today. He also hadn’t touched a woman for a long, long time.

       When he got out of the bathtub, Li Zhenruo felt somewhat exhausted. He ignored the clothes he had just taken off and went straight to Li Zhenran’s room. He opened the wardrobe and found a set of Li Zhenran’s clothes.

       Li Zhenran was taller than him. In fact, Li Zhenruo used to be taller than he was now. Every time Li Zhenruo looked in the mirror, he felt that he looked like he was not yet an adult. He thought that he was a half-year-old kitten that had just matured, so it was understandable this was the form when he turned into human.

       But where did the pie face go?

       Li Zhenruo pinched his face.

       It took almost two hours for Li Zhenran to came back from Li’s house. When he entered the door, Li Zhenruo was lying on the sofa watching TV.

       He was really lying on his stomach, probably because he was used to this position. He didn’t sit or lie down. He just lay on the sofa and raised his body slightly with his elbows.

       Li Zhenran picked up a box and put it next to the sofa.

       Li Zhenruo turned to look and asked, “How long are you going to stay here?”

       As he walked into the room, Li Zhenran said, “We will go back if you change back to your original form.”

       Li Zhenruo was speechless for a while, thinking that if he couldn’t become a cat again, Li Zhenran would probably go crazy.

       “Are we going out for dinner?” Li Zhenruo asked him when Li Zhenran came out of the room.

       Li Zhenran was rolling up his sleeves and asked him, “What do you want to eat?”

       You see, Li Zhenruo has been hungry for a lot of food after eating cat food for so long. God knows there were so many delicious foods in this world, but why couldn’t cats eat them?

       Li Zhenruo started making a list in his head and said, “Let’s eat Japanese food today.”

       Li Zhenran refused without thinking, “No.”

       “…” Li Zhenruo looked at him fiercely, “Thai-style hot pot?”

       “No.”

       Li Zhenruo’s chest began to rise and fall even more, “French cuisine?”

       Li Zhenran said directly this time, “There is a Chinese restaurant outside that tastes good. Otherwise, a Sichuan hot pot is not bad. You can choose it yourself.”

       Li Zhenruo took a deep breath and said, “Sichuan hot pot.”

       Li Zhenran said, “Get up.”

       Before going out, Li Zhenruo pointed to the collar on his neck, “Can I take it off?”

       Li Zhenran said, “No.”

       Li Zhenruo said in his heart, Are you not afraid of any strange misunderstandings caused by others seeing it?! But on second thought, The second young master Li was not afraid, so what was he afraid of, so he calmly followed Li Zhenran out.

       Li Zhenran walked in front. While waiting for the elevator, Li Zhenruo looked at Li Zhenran’s back and had a strange feeling. How to describe it? Although this was his second brother, they seemed to rarely have the opportunity to walk alone together like this. The impression of Li Zhenran was even more distinctive when he has become a cat.

       As a cat, he was too small. When he was so close, even if he raised his head, he could only see Li Zhenran’s legs, but not the back of his neck. The current experience was a little new.

       When the elevator was about to arrive, Li Zhenran suddenly turned around to look at him, and then stretched out his hand towards his neck.

       Li Zhenruo: “?”

       However, Li Zhenran just helped him tidy up the front of his clothes, just like tidying up the hair on the top of his cat’s head.

       Li Zhenruo bowed his head slightly, and when Li Zhenran’s hand left, his fingers brushed against his cheek. Li Zhenruo was slightly startled by the touch, and he couldn’t help raising his hand to touch the skin on his face.

       At this moment, the elevator door opened, and two people walked in one after the other.

       Li Zhenran was awfully selfish.

       Li Zhenruo didn’t seem to feel it before, but it was only after he became his cat that he felt it deeply. Because he was his cat, he was his property, and he must obey him.

       Li Zhenran took the menu and ordered more than ten dishes, and threw the menu to Li Zhenruo for him to see.

       Li Zhenruo glanced at it and said, “Can you finish the meal if you order so much?”

       Li Zhenran actually said, “Then you don’t order.”

       Li Zhenruo did not bother to pay attention to him. He ordered a few more dishes that he liked, and handed the menu to the waiter.

       Even if they were just eating hot pot, Li Zhenran also found a hot pot restaurant with luxurious decoration and a quiet environment. The two of them sat in the small private room facing each other.

       After he ordered, Li Zhenran ignored him and leaned back on the back of the wooden chair, holding a mobile phone in one hand while watching the stock market, while the other hand held up the cup on the table and slowly drank the tea.

       Li Zhenruo, on the other hand, picked up his chopsticks and tapped them on the table casually.

       After a while, Li Zhenran glanced at him, “It’s noisy.”

       Li Zhenruo paused for a moment and intensified his efforts by separating the two chopsticks and pounding on the tabletop bowl and teacup.

       Li Zhenran looked at him coldly.

       Li Zhenruo stopped, picked up a chopstick and put it to his mouth and bit it. He was unable to restrain the corner of his mouth from turning up slightly. He liked to annoy Li Zhenran, and Li Zhenran always went along with him.

       He was more afraid of Li Zhenran when he was a cat because he could do nothing to Li Zhenran, but now he was not so afraid. After all, every part of him was so big, and except for the time he slipped away, more often than not Li Zhenran’s anger was not too severe.

       Li Zhenran ordered a lot of dishes, but after the dishes were served, he didn’t eat much.

       “Why don’t you eat?” Li Zhenruo could also see that he didn’t eat much.

       Li Zhenran didn’t answer, just said, “You eat faster.”

       Li Zhenruo ignored him and said, “We’re eating a hot pot yet you also urging me to hurry up.”

       After a while, Li Zhenruo discovered that Li Zhenran had to take a cup to drink water every time he took a bite of the dish. He even directly let the waiter bring in a pot of tea, and immediately understood that Li Zhenran couldn’t eat spicy food.

       They have been brothers for more than 20 years, but this was the first time Li Zhenruo has discovered that Li Zhenran couldn’t eat spicy food.

       He thought back carefully, Li Zhenran didn’t seem to like many of the dishes he liked to eat. Li Zhenran ate light food just to nourish himself, which Li Zhenruo used to disapprove of.

       As long as there was a distance in your heart, even if you met every day, you would refuse to understand each other.

       At this time, Li Zhenran suddenly said, “What are you looking at me for?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “It’s just, you are handsome.”

       Li Zhenran snorted and did not continue.

       After they ate, Li Zhenruo stood on the side of the road and stretched his arms, breathing in the night air deeply.

       Li Zhenran stood beside him with his hands in his pockets. When he saw that Li Zhenruo was smiling while looking at the sky, he asked strangely, “What are you smiling at?”

       Li Zhenruo lowered his head, but the smile on the corner of his mouth still remained on his face, he said, “I don’t know, I just didn’t expect that there would be such a day. I cherish it very much.”

       He had a lot since he was a child, and then one day he lost all of it, including his life. What encouraged him these days was not only revenge but also the idea of ​​​​living properly.

       Of course, the hatred had not been forgotten, but Li Zhenruo sometimes thought about what’s the point of hating blindly. If one were to live happily, while at the same time also letting the other party live in misery, that would be the biggest blow.

       If you have lost, you wouldn’t be afraid of anything. Now he has a big house to live in, good food to eat, and an older brother as a bonus, which was actually quite good.

       “Second brother,” Li Zhenruo blurted out.

       Li Zhenran frowned slightly, “What?”

       Li Zhenruo reacted quickly and immediately said, “What what?”

       Li Zhenran said, “What did you call me just now?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “Ran ge.” In fact, there was some drumming in his heart, but it couldn’t be seen on his face.

       Li Zhenran raised his chin slightly to look at him, “I heard you call me second brother.”

       Li Zhenruo had a strange expression on his face, “Where did the second brother come from? How old are you? Your ears just don’t work anymore, huh?”

       Li Zhenran’s face turned cold as expected.

       However, Li Zhenruo was not afraid of him, so he took his arm and walked forward, “Let’s go home first.”

       Back home, Li Zhenran went to the bathroom to take a bath. But Li Zhenruo planned to wait for Li Zhenran to finish taking a bath because he took a bath in the afternoon. He had already taken a shower and he was still fine.

       When Li Zhenran was taking a shower, Li Zhenruo moved a stool and sat at the door of the bathroom. He was cutting his toenails while talking to Li Zhenran, he said, “Can I go out tomorrow?”

       Li Zhenran raised his head and seemed to be drowsy. As he heard the words, he asked, “Where are you going?”

       Li Zhenruo casually babbled, “I want to find my mother.”

       “Your mother?”

       Li Zhenruo raised his head and made up something, “Mama cat, she should still be in the pet store.”

       Li Zhenran was speechless for a while, then asked him, “What for?”

       Li Zhenruo said, “You don’t miss your mother?”

       After he asked this sentence, Li Zhenruo suddenly felt a little regretful and stopped cutting his toenails. Just like him, Li Zhenran probably hadn’t seen his mother very much.

       Sure enough, Li Zhenran was silent for a while, and then said, “I don’t have a mother.”

       Li Zhenruo tilted his head back, leaned against the wall, and said silently in his heart: Neither do I.

       Li Zhenran only said that sentence. Instead of continuing to talk about himself, he asked Li Zhenruo, “What can you do when you see your mother? Are you going to buy it?”

       Li Zhenruo said quickly, “Not going to buy her. She is used to living there, so she may not like it when she got bought.”

       Li Zhenran asked at this time, “Can you communicate with each other?”

       Li Zhenruo was slightly stunned. He turned his head towards the bathroom door and asked, “What kind of communication?”

       Li Zhenran said, “Just like we communicate, using words.”

       Li Zhenruo thought about it for a while, “We can communicate, but it’s not a language. More precisely, it would be like a signal. You’ll understand what her cry and action mean over time”

       Li Zhenran didn’t speak.

       Li Zhenruo then asked him, “Would you like to go with me?”

       Li Zhenran bluntly refused, “I don’t have time.”

       Li Zhenruo knew that he would not go, so he deliberately asked him a question, but he did not expect to hear Li Zhenran say, “You also don’t go too.”

       “Huh?” Li Zhenruo was immediately unhappy, “Why?”

       Li Zhenran said, “There is no reason.”

       After Li Zhenruo came out of the shower, Li Zhenran was already lying on the bed in the bedroom watching TV.

       His hair was still wet, and he was wearing a pair of new underwear that Li Zhenran gave him. He walked over and sat down by the bed, shouting, “Ran ge…”

       Li Zhenran ignored him.

       Li Zhenruo called out again, “Master…”

       Li Zhenran looked at him this time.

       He knew that Li Zhenran would yield to a soft approach and refused a brute approach. Li Zhenruo leaned over and said, “Are you tired? I’ll help you massage your shoulders.”

       Li Zhenran lay down and didn’t get up, but only lifted his legs.

       Li Zhenruo silently cursed, but he obediently went over and knelt down beside Li Zhenran’s leg to help him massage his leg.

       Li Zhenran’s legs were slender and strong, and his muscles were strong. As he saw Li Zhenruo sit over, he raised one leg and placed it on Li Zhenruo’s thigh.

       While Li Zhenruo was helping him massage his leg, he thought to himself that Li Zhenran’s mother must be a great beauty, to be able to give birth to such a son.

       Li Zhenran tilted his head back and suddenly said, “It seems that a human can still do more than cats.”

       Li Zhenruo thought he wasn’t talking nonsensically. He raised his head and asked Li Zhenran with a smile, “Then how about I stay like this?”

       Li Zhenran replied coldly, “Not good.”

       Li Zhenruo thought to himself: What a pervert.

       After he finished massaging Li Zhenran’s legs, Li Zhenran seemed to feel comfortable. He turned over on the bed for Li Zhenruo to massage his shoulders.

       Li Zhenshou got on top of his back and massaged the muscles on his shoulders with both hands.

       Li Zhenran’s body was slender and well-proportioned, and the skin on his back was full of healthy lustre. Li Zhenruo only felt that the touch under his hand was smooth and delicate. As he massaged him, his imagination was roaming.

       When he came back to his senses, his breathing was a little short.

       And Li Zhenran said coldly, “Get up.”

       Li Zhenruo and Li Zhenran were too close to each other. He knew that Li Zhenran noticed his physical condition, and he couldn’t help feeling a little embarrassed. He lifted his legs and got off Li Zhenran’s back and sat aside.

       Li Zhenran turned over and said, “Who gave you permission to be in heat with your master?”

       Li Zhenruo grunted, “I was originally in rutting period…”

       Li Zhenran snorted, “I asked you to have surgery, but you refused to do it.”

       Li Zhenruo, “…”

       Li Zhenran said, “Go to the bathroom and take care of it yourself.”

       Li Zhenruo had just gotten out of bed when Li Zhenran suddenly stopped him.

       “What?” Li Zhenruo wondered.

       Li Zhenran opened the drawer of the bedside table, took out a spare key and threw it to him, saying, “You must come back before five o’clock in the afternoon.”

       Li Zhenruo caught it and said with a smile, “No problem.”

       The next morning, when Li Zhenruo was sleeping beside Li Zhenran’s bed, he was woken up by a doorbell. He heard that Li Zhenran also turned over, and thought that Li Zhenran was going to ask him to get up and open the door, but he didn’t expect Li Zhenran to sit up, walk around him and get out of bed.

       Li Zhenruo yawned and sat up. He didn’t like to stay in bed as much as Li Zhenran. Then he heard Li Zhenran open the door, and then came the voice of someone talking.

       The person who came over in the morning was Hua Yibang.

       Because Li Zhenran’s house was too open, Hua Yibang walked in and saw a young man in Li Zhenran’s room through the gap of the partitioned wine cabinet.

       Hua Yibang who was such a calm person suddenly lost his voice. He stretched out his hand and pushed his glasses to look at Li Zhenran.

       Li Zhenran didn’t want to explain, and asked Hua Yibang, “Did you bring the things?”

       Hua Yibang took a small bag and handed it to Li Zhenran, which contained a new mobile phone and a SIM card.

       Li Zhenran put the card in the mobile phone, walked to the bedroom and handed it to Li Zhenruo, “Take it. Remember to answer when I call.”

       “Oh,” Li Zhenruo obediently agreed.

       Hua Yibang tried his best not to look sideways, but when Li Zhenruo stood up from the bed, he still saw what looked like a cat collar around his neck.

       Moreover, he knew this cat collar. It was the collar he helped Li Zhenran custom-made it before.

       Although it was not convenient for him to ask the identity of the man in the room, he could ask other questions, such as, “Zhenran, where is your cat?”

       Li Zhenran said, “That’s my cat.”

       Hua Yibang clenched his hands into a fist against his lips and coughed softly. He and Li Zhenran almost grew up together, but he never knew that Li Zhenran had that kind of hobby. As his assistant, Hua Yibang felt that he could not interfere, so he stay silent.

       Li Zhenran was going back to the company for a regular meeting in the morning, and didn’t have time to eat breakfast. Before he left, he threw a secondary credit card to Li Zhenruo and told him to eat by himself.

       Li Zhenruo hurriedly said, “Give me some change. I can’t swipe my card and take the bus, can I?”

       Li Zhenran then gave him another 2,000 yuan in cash.

       After Li Zhenran and Hua Yibang left, Li Zhenruo got up and washed quickly. He found a set of Li Zhenran’s clothes to put on and went out.

       He bought two buns for breakfast. After he ate, Li Zhenruo bought a new SIM card at a nearby canteen and put it in his pocket.

       He stretched out his hand to take a taxi. After he got in the car, he gave the driver an address.

       The address was not too far from here, but there was some traffic jam on Monday morning, and the driver drove for nearly an hour to arrive.

       Li Zhenruo paid the money to get out of the car and stood alone in front of a secluded lawn on the street.

       He glanced at the time and knew that Li Zhenran had already started the regular work meeting on Monday morning, so he took off the SIM card on his mobile phone and replaced it with a newly bought one.

       He made a phone call according to his memory.

       The phone beeped several times, and a young man over there answered the phone. His tone was not very nice, and he said lazily, “Hello? Who is it?”

       Li Zhenruo said slowly, “Zhu Kai, this is Li Zhenruo.”

    Zhenruo being in a new body, that happens to be a young cat demon, also explains why his human form doesn’t look like he does. I wonder where his cat demon parents are? If they even have a family unit like humans do? Well, the Li family is a really poor example of a normal human family unit too!

    Thanks for your hard work translating!
