Chapter 29 – I want to abort this child
When Jian Luo’s wrist started to hurt, he felt like his bones were about to be crushed.
Professor Wang’s face got closer and those eyes contained so much contempt that he could almost feel it physically: “How old are you? Who are you to still be playing hard-to-get with me?”
Jian Luo sneered before he suddenly raised his foot and kicked him under the waist fiercely.
Suddenly there was an exasperated scream in the corridor. Looking at Professor Wang’s twisted face, Jian Luo felt relief in his heart and took the opportunity to withdraw his hand, turn around and run.
Afterwards, Professor Wang slowed down, gasping for breath. He ruthlessly said: “You dared kick me?!”
Jian Luo ran so fast that he thought he installed a powerful little motor on his legs. As he ran vigorously, he looked for the exit of the corridor.
Professor Wang chased him. As he was about to be caught, the man stretched out his hand to grab Jian Luo’s arm.
Almost in an instant, no one could see what happened. A flying object hit Professor Wang on the shoulder.
Mr. Wang bent down in pain. He was unable to move his left shoulder. It was a strong tearing pain and he used his fairly good hand to stroke his shoulder tremblingly. The pain was uncontrollable as he exhaled.
Jian Luo looked back in surprise.
Lu Shifeng stood at the other end of the corridor and looked at them with a straight face. He was wearing a straight and orthodox military uniform. The sun was shining down by the window, but there was not a trace of warmth. This whole body seemed to be sharp and sturdy, like a sharpened blade made others afraid to approach it.
The bodies of Dark Stars are strong.
Even though Professor Wang suffered this injury, he still did not fall. He just knelt on the ground and shrieked in pain, “Who is it? Come out!”
Not far away, Lu Shifeng took a step forward. The man’s steps were calm and elegant. Every step he approached seemed to be stepping on the apex of one’s heart. Jian Luo watched as Lu Shifeng approached. He himself took two steps back.’
Finally, Lu Shifeng stood in front of him, raised his eyelids and glanced at him: “What are you doing?”
Jian Luo blinked, as if thinking about how to explain the current situation and finally said, “Just, just running for my life. Were you not watching?”
Lu Shifeng glanced at the ground: “Why was he chasing you?”
Professor Wang’s shoulder hurt so bad that he didn’t have the strength to raise his head at all. His heart was full of anger so his tone of voice was naturally a little rushed: “Why I’m chasing him. I’m warning you, no matter who you are, mind your own business. I tell you, I chased him first if you are interested…”
A crisp gunshot rang across the corridor.
Just now in the corridor, the endless babbling and ceaseless reasoning stopped abruptly.
Lu Shifeng’s eyes were so dark that he couldn’t see his emotions and anger. Even Jian Luo couldn’t tell where his gun came from.
Jian Luo’s eyes widened.
Suddenly, he thought that Jiang Jiang had told himself that the military has the right to kill first and then file a report. If he said that, Lu Shifeng couldn’t possibly do anything to this professor…
Thinking of this, Jian Luo’s face turned white. No matter what, he was still a good citizen in the 21st century who abides by the law. For such an extreme thing to happen, especially in front of his own eyes. Can anyone really somehow accept this?
“He…” Jian Luo stretched out his fingers tremblingly: “Is he dead?”
In two steps, Lu Shifeng’s military boots stepped on Mr. Wang’s body. With a little effort, Mr. Wang was kicked and rolled twice before stopping like a dead fish.
Jian Luo stepped back a little, shivering.
Lu Shifeng looked at his cowardly appearance and said softly, “It’s just a tranquilizer. Do you think I make a hobby of killing?”
That is hard to determine.
Jian Luo didn’t dare to speak, but he heaved a sigh of relief: “It’s good if he didn’t die.”
Lu Shifeng raised his eyebrows and was a little puzzled: “He offended you, you don’t want him to die?”
“I just hope he’ll be punished a little bit.” Jian Luo gasped, “He’s not guilty enough to die.”
Lu Shifeng sneered twice.
On the other hand, Jian Luo knew that Mr. Wang was not dead, so he didn’t give up. He was full of energy. He straightened his waist and strode forward. He kicked Mr. Wang, who was like a dead fish with his feet and some hatred: “How dare you chase me, you pervert?!”
Lu Shifeng looked at him with an expression.
Jian Luo retracted his feet again to relieve his anger. After he was finished, he looked back and saw that Lu Shifeng was still standing behind him, before freezing again.
Their eyes met and there was a moment of silence in the air.
Jian Luo rummaged his head to find a topic: “I just found out that you are so strong that you can make him flip around a few times with just a casual kick.”
Lu Shifeng made a noncommittal hum.
In fact, he was not using his strength at all. Otherwise it would not be a problem making him roll twice. It would even be possible to lodge the person into the wall.
“That said.” Jian Luo scratched his head: “You were kind to me that day.”
Lu Shifeng was silent: “You think I’m abusing you?”
Jian Luo said with a bit of resentment: “Anyone with bruises all over their body with the feeling that their skeleton is about to be dismantled will feel that they have been abused.”
Lu Shifeng glanced at him indifferently and finally came to the conclusion: “It’s because your body is too fragile.”
Jian Luo snorted softly.
In fact, he found that his body suddenly became much stronger. Before, he didn’t run as fast at all. He didn’t know what was going on just now, but he felt that Professor Wang was not able to catch up to him at all.
The two were talking when someone came down the stairs.
The little emperor and the dean came down after hearing the news. When they came, they saw Professor Wang lying not far away and the two who were talking to each other.
The dean was surprised: “What’s going on?”
The little emperor also got closer: “Hey, he’s not dead.”
Why did you say this in such a surprised tone?
The dean observed the scene and was sure that he was still alive so he notified the medical officers to come over and carry Mr. Wang. Originally, the dean wanted to ask for the professor to be relieved of his punishment. After all, Mr. Wang was considered to be an excellent professor in his school. But he did not do so. When he opened his mouth, he saw Lu Shifeng behind Jian Luo, who was like a god of plague. Even if Lu Shifeng didn’t open his mouth, the dean dared not be so arrogant.
With a light cough, the dean said to Jian Luo, “Are you a student’s guardian? Can you tell me what happened?”
Jian Luo thought for a while: “Well, he had bad intentions towards me, but he didn’t succeed. Fortunately, the Marshal passed by and rescued me.”
The dean blurted out: “Sinister intentions against you? He’s a pure-blooded Dark Star…”
Jian Luo rolled his eyes.
This again. It’s damn racism. It seems that all the Dark Stars feel that they should be held highly, as high as the stars while the ones from Earth must kneel and lick their shoes.
How can there be such a reason in this world?
Lu Shifeng leaned against the wall and asked slowly, “Are you the dean?”
The dean didn’t want to be called out. But he knew what Lu Shifeng was like so he said, “I am.”
“Well.” Lu Shifeng glanced at the emperor: “Did you talk to him?”
The little emperor shook his head.
The dean was very reluctant to support the program for the students.
Lu Shifeng’s phoenix eyes became a little more sharp and he glanced at the dean: “Forget it if we can’t come to an agreement, then we should change the dean.”
For a moment, the space was quiet.
The dean was stunned. He couldn’t believe his ears. How could such a thing be possible in this extraordinary world!?
Oh yes, he shouldn’t be afraid. The Majesty was upright and forthcoming.
Thinking of this, the dean looked at the little emperor with anticipation, praying that the little emperor would quickly scold Lu Shifeng in front of them and speak up for him.
Unexpectedly, the little emperor touched his chin and nodded lightly: “It’s not impossible.”
The dean’s eyes widened.
The little emperor waved his hand: “Okay then. That’s all. There’s nothing else to talk about today, let’s go back.”
When he finished his sentence, the little emperor took a few steps forward slowly towards Jian Luo: “Are you the chef from Moonlight?”
Jian Luo was also stunned. He was just a melon-eater watching the drama when out of nowhere, he was suddenly named and he said, “I am. What’s the matter?”
“I still want to eat stinky tofu.” The little emperor said indiscreetly: “Can you still make it for me?”
The child looked very tender and he was about the same age as Jian Luo. When he laughed with his soft features, two sharp fangs appeared, making him look round and soft like a harmless creature.
Without any more words, Jian Luo was instantly softenened.
“Okay.” Jian Luo’s hand that wanted to pinch his face was about to move: “I’ll do it for you when I get back, but today I’m taking a rest as I asked for a leave.”
The little emperor couldn’t hide his loss: “Why? I really want to eat it.”
Jian Luo’s heart changed and he had no resistance at all to this lovely creature: “Next time. Next time, alright?”
The little emperor nodded reluctantly.
Lu Shifeng took him aside: “Go back.”
The dean still hasn’t snapped out of his trance before. He wanted to chase after them but as soon as he took a step, he met Lu Shifeng’s gaze.
The man looked back coldly, his eyes fell on the dean’s body, indifferent as if he was looking at a deadman.
In an instant, the dean did not dare to move again.
He had reason to believe that if he dared to mess up today, it might end up badly for him.
After a long walk.
The little emperor got into the car carefully as Lu Shifeng and Jian Luo stood side by side outside. Jian Luo said sincerely, “Thank you.”
Lu Shifeng said nothing.
Jian Luo waited for a long time without responding. He raised his face and looked at Lu Shifeng curiously, who was leaning lazily beside the car door and looking at him silently.
Quite a while passed when Lu Shifeng said, “That’s it?”
Jian Luo was suspicious: “Then, what else can I do?”
Lu Shifeng felt that he was really going back and forth with this and he had to blatantly say this to Jian Luo: “Was this how you repaid the kindness of your dragon savior?”
This was simply outrageous.
Jian Luo suppressed the complaints in his heart and he thought for a while: “How about I also cook you a meal to express my sincere apologies?”
Lu Shifeng said: “I’m busy with official business. I’m afraid I don’t know when I can go to Moonlight. I’ll have to wait a long time for this meal.”
Jian Luo scratched his head: “Then, shall I contact Secretary Jin to bring you there?”
Lu Shifeng was not very satisfied with this answer.
But Jian Luo looked at him earnestly, as if he would be very sad if he was rejected, which made him feel a little more comfortable.
So, the marshal reluctantly said, “Well.”
Anyway, whether Secretary Jin had the time or not, was it not him who had the final say?
After a few simple exchange of words, Lu Shifeng got into the car and went back. The car started slowly, and in the rearview mirror, you could see Jian Luo standing on the spot, getting further and further away.
The little emperor said: “Uncle Huang is still watching him. Why don’t you go back and take him with you?”
Lu Shifeng glanced at him lightly: “He has something to do this afternoon.”
“Oh~” The little emperor nodded with a vague understanding: “So you thought about bringing him along, but you didn’t do it because he had something to do at home?”
Lu Shifeng didn’t say yes or no.
The little emperor was bored. He touched his nose and muttered: “It’s quite strange. The first time I saw him, I smelled the scent of dragons on him. Though, according to my theory, it has been several days. Why haven’t it dispersed, could it be that you…”
Lu Shifeng took a sip of the water in the freezer and said, “Seeing that Your Majesty is so leisurely. Seems like you must’ve been busy with state affairs recently. Do you need the help of the minister?”
The little emperor choked and pouted, “You’re so boring.”
Lu Shifeng ignored him.
Even so, he was thinking about what the little emperor said. Even if he had a relationship with Jian Luo, logically speaking, the dragon scent should not have lingered on him for that long.
On the contrary
When they met today, Jian Luo’s smell was a little heavier. If it was the smell of other dragons, it would be easy to tell the difference.
However, that was the problem.
Lu Shifeng was very sure that it was his own dragon scent. Although it was a little light, he was definitely not wrong.
Tapping at the chair with his fingertips, the marshal encountered something he couldn’t understand. Could there be some problem with his body?
The other side
After Jian Sheng memorized the dormitories and came back, he ran to Jian Luo: “Brother, have you waited for a long time?”
“It didn’t take long.” Jian Luo was under the tree and he was counting ants. He hesitated: “What do you think of this school? Are you okay?”
To be honest, Mr. Wang’s incident made him reassess the school. The so-called pillar was unjust and crooked, so how can those professors here manage their conduct well and ensure that they teach the children well?
Unexpectedly, Jian Sheng was very happy.
Jian Sheng said: “It’s pretty good, the Dark Stars here are all good to me and a few people next to my dormitory even took the initiative to say hello to me. I gave him hash browns, and he said we should go to the cafeteria to eat together later.”
Jane Luo showed an expression of rare surprise: “Your classmates are so easy to get along with.”
“Yes.” Jian Sheng was also delighted: “I didn’t think it was going to be like this either.”
Jian Luo was a little relieved. Although he felt that the school was quite problematic, he heard that the principal was going to be changed. Since the students didn’t have any major problems, it should be fine.
Thinking of this, Jian Luo nodded and told his younger brother: “Okay. Study hard and you can come home once a week. If anything happens, just contact the family.”
Jian Sheng nodded vigorously: “I know!”
Seeing that nothing happened to him, he was relieved. He looked at the time of the information bracelet and said to the Lightbrain, “Are any hospitals still open?”
Lightbrain: “Searching for a nearby hospital for you.”
After searching for a long time, Jian Luo finally couldn’t wait: “Are they all closed?”
Lightbrain explained to him: “All the hospitals in Dark Star are open 24 hours a day but none of them are open to the public. A hospital has been found for you. Would you like to go?”
Jian Luo accepted his fate: “Which one is it?”
Guangnao answered him: “No. 125 Peace Paradise, Peaceful Small Clinic.”
How can that place sound unreliable?
Jian Luo suddenly didn’t want to go but today he felt that his condition was not quite right. He was always sleepy and hungry. As long as this feeling of physical fatigue was not a minor illness, it would be enough reassurance for him.
Thinking of this, he gritted his teeth: “Okay, I’ll go take a look.”
After taking the last bus, Jian Luo finally came to the so-called Peace Paradise Small Clinic which was in a dark area. The clinic was also very small.
It was the size of a bedroom. Once he was inside, it was dark with only a dim light on.
Jian Luo almost turned around and wanted to leave.
Sitting behind the cabinet, someone heard some movement so he raised his head: “A visitor?”
It was an old man with a bit of a beard. His eyes were cloudy as he looked at Jian Luo: “Are you going to see a doctor?”
Jian Luo nodded lifelessly: “Yes.”
The old man sat up straight as if he had finally had enough rest, and said, “Where is the ailment?”
“My stomach doesn’t feel very well.” Jian Luo covered his stomach: “I feel nauseous just smelling some bloody stuff. I used to like seafood, but now, even when there is no fishy smell after the seafood is cooked, I can’t eat either.”
The old doctor stroked his beard: “Are you still sleepy and tired?”
Jian Luo’s eyes lit up, he was really sorry towards the uncle for doubting his medical skills before but now it seems that the spark was still there.
Thinking of this, Jian Luo nodded hurriedly: “Yes, yes. How did you know?”
The old man smiled gently: “It’s usually like that. Now, give me your hand, and I’ll take your pulse.”
Jian Luo hurriedly handed over his wrist.
The old man tremblingly put his finger on Jian Luo’s pulseline, and felt it for a long time. His eyes narrowed from time to time, which made his heart fall as he couldn’t figure it out.
Jian Luo was also very nervous: “Well, sir, what’s wrong with me, can you do anything to help?”
The old man finally slowly put away his fingers and touched him again.
Touching his beard, he shook his head gently: “Your problem is very serious.”
For a moment, Jian Luo’s heart throbbed.
At this moment, he already thought it out and wrote down his ailment. If he’s really gotten some serious illness, it was probably his fate anyway.
As he was still thinking about it, the old man said slowly: “If the old man guessed correctly, you should have it.”
Jian Luo: “Oh, yes, I have… what?!”
The suddenly raised tone almost overturned the small medical hall, especially the old man, who was covering his heart: “Young man, do you want to send me to the afterlife?”
Jian Luo was a little embarrassed and sat down again: “I didn’t mean it. I mean, sir, are you mistaken? How could I have this?”
The uncle shook his head: “I will never make a mistake. Back then, in this whole Peace Paradise, everyone who had a pulse indicating a bundle of joy is to come was diagnosed by me. When your mother was pregnant with you, I was also the one who diagnosed it!”
Jian Luo spoke for a while.
He thought for a while about how his soul was captivated, then he thought about how a man could get pregnant. After that, he thought of how Dark Stars only birthed cubs. Lu Shifeng, you dog! After playing with me, you knew that you must wear a condom and yet!
After a long time.
Jian Luo remembered another important thing: “Well, you just said that the problem is very serious, what is the problem?”
The old man stroked his beard again, and then slowly said: “It’s also very likely that you’re not pregnant. I’ve read pulses for many years, but I’ve never felt this kind of pulse before. It’s powerful but too illusive.”
Jian Luo’s heart skipped a beat again.
He feels cold. It couldn’t be that the child was a dragon, could it? Not only did he get a child before he was married, that was not the most nerve-wracking part. It is the fact that the child might be out of the ordinary.
The old doctor said complacently: “Fortunately, I still have some wit left in me. Although your pulse is very strange, I can confirm that it is definitely a pulse indicating a bundle of joy.”
Jian Luo thought for a while before hesitating: “Then, can I abort this child?”
The old doctor was stunned.
Those turbid eyes looked at Jian Luo, who was inexplicably guilty for a while before saying: “I don’t want this to be known by my family. Besides, you also know the current situation of my family, how can I afford to raise a child?”
Plus… it was a dragon.
Please just spare him.
The old doctor coughed lightly, his voice was hoarse and deep: “Go find that Dark Star. He will definitely take responsibility. They have never been able to reproduce new life for thousands of years and all their children relied on test-tube synthesis. They will not last long. If that continues, the Dark Star will die out sooner or later. You are their planet’s hope.”
Jian Luo suddenly thought about what he had heard at school that day. He heard that the sacred dragon fruit tree had opened, and how the students had said that they were looking forward to the cubs.
He remembered the Dark Stars of Star Network who always said:
“If only I could feel what morning sickness feels like.”
“Unfortunately, I can’t have cubs.”
“The holy dragon fruit tree is blooming today. It’s a good sign. Maybe I will have a cub this year.”
It seems that all the Dark Stars and the whole planet are eagerly looking forward to the birth of this new life, pinning their hopes on this silent child.
Jian Luo lowered his eyes and said in a deep voice, “But have you ever thought if he would want this child to be born in a human’s belly?”
The Dark Star’s disdain for their class is undeniable.
The old doctor sighed: “Or your child is not only the hope of Dark Stars, but also the hope of your entire family.”
His kind has been oppressed for so long, so maybe he can just use this opportunity to turn things around. There are many things that cannot be thought about, even if done carefully. There are too many things to consider and the complexity of it was outrageous.
Jian Luo fell into deep thought and after a while, he asked, “Well, then you still haven’t said whether you can do anything to get rid of it?”
The old doctor sighed: “After you think about it, you can come to me.”
Jian Luo nodded. In fact, he was panicking right now. If he was asked to abort him now, he would not be willing. Going home and thinking hard would indeed be the best thing to do at the moment.
Although he once thought that if the child was conceived by himself, it must be very good. He has a house and a household registration. Maybe he will get everything.
But he is not stupid. In the future, will his life still be his own? Maybe he will be sent to be studied. Although life is difficult now, everything was developing in a good direction. With his effort, those external things can always be solve.
So this child was not really necessary, it is better to abort it.
Children are also innocent.
On the way back, Jian Luo remembered watching those naughty little dragons in the sky garden. They were actually quite cute. The little one has two little wings but was unexpectedly soft-tempered. Since he was especially good at flying, when he grows up, he must be a super handsome dragon.
Jian Luo thought about it again, if he aborted this child, in the case he was accidentally caught by Lu Shifeng in the future…
