Chapter 17 – The Star Thief (2)

       The moment his body entered the zero gravity atmosphere, Qin Yun was knocked over by the air current. Moschery pulled him to his side by the end of the rope and motioned for him to hold on to him tightly.

       Qin Yun hung onto Moschery like an octopus, “Hold, hold me tight!”

       “What’s the fuss now?” Moschery pressed the back of Qin Yun’s head with a strange expression, “We can kiss him after we go down and take off the oxygen mask.”

       “…” Qin Yun was embarrassed to say that he didn’t mean it that way. He was supported by Moschery on the back and gradually rose steadily. When he remembered and looked back at Chen Xiao’s aircraft, the Stallion Balls had turned into a small black ball.

       “Almost there.” Moschery loosened the rope in his hand, pulled out a little distance, and signalled Qin Yun to stand firm.

       “Wah!” Qin Yun looked down at his dangling feet with an expression of disbelief and surprise.

       Moschery stretched the rope tied around their waists a little longer and suggested, “Go run and see.”

       Qin Yun enthusiastically tried to do a few ‘spacewalks’. After feeling that there was no danger at all, he let go and started to have fun.

       Moschery held the other end of the rope steady and watched Qin Yun flapping up and down, left and right, and if he flew too far, Moschery would be responsible for pulling him back by the rope.

       After playing for a long time, Qin Yun found that he was the only one who was happy and felt a little embarrassed. He slid next to Moschery and said cheerfully, “You want to play for a while too? I’ll help you hold it!”

       Moschery glanced at him and said calmly, “No need.”

       Qin Yun: “??”

       Moschery: “I don’t like being toyed around with.”

       Qin Yun: “…”


       The spiritual link was not affected by gravity, and Zhongyan’s flying speed was still the same as usual. The huge black dragon almost blended into the night sky, and its outstretched wings were like cloud curtains, covering the bright stars.

       Qin Yun imitated Moschery’s movements and laid ‘flat’ in space. The stars above his head were magnificent, and even the nebulae farther away could be clearly seen.

       “This is more beautiful than the one in Cyprus.” Qin Yun sighed. Zhongyan had already laid down next to him as if he was afraid of Qin Yun being cold; he stretched out one of his wings to cover him.

       “Don’t fall asleep.” Moschery kicked his sleepy guide.

       Qin Yun made a muffled sound and said with slurred speech, “It’s okay… there’s enough oxygen, right?”

       Moschery remained silent. He reached out and intermittently applied pressure to Qin Yun’s neck, ensuring that he didn’t completely fall asleep.

       “Don’t you want to try and ride a dragon?” Moschery suddenly said, “It’s not far from the atmosphere. We can ride back… and fly in the clouds.”

       Half-awake Qin Yun suddenly finally regained some energy. He climbed onto the dragon’s back clumsily and patted the position in front of him, “Come up quickly, I’ll take you!”

       Moschery: “…You sit in front!”


       After returning to the atmosphere, Qin Yun wanted to imitate Moschery and remove the oxygen mask, but the latter did not agree.

       “It’s too high; it’s better to carry it with you.” Moschery pointed in the general direction and let Zhongyan fly wherever he wanted. The Sissy Dragon was indeed peculiar, choosing thick and large cloud layers to fly through. It opened its mouth wide and passed through the clouds from the middle. In no time, the two riders on the dragon’s back were soaked from head to toe.

       Qin Yun: “…can it see the road when it’s in the clouds?”

       “Did you look at the road when you hit the wall?” Moschery glanced at him, “The more you hit the wall, the more you’ll get used to it. Stop the nonsense.”

       Qin Yun: “…”


       Just after hitting countless cloud walls, a large and gorgeous meteor shower suddenly appeared in front of Qin Yun’s eyes. The trailing star tails pierced the sky like burning flames, illuminating the dark curtain of the night, and Qin Yun’s eyes widened, his mouth half-open as he tilted his neck in a dazed manner.

       Moschery asked Zhongyan to stop on a huge cloud.

       The meteor shower was vast in scale, and although Zhongyan wasn’t very close to it, Qin Yun still had the illusion that the stars might fall directly onto him.

       “Blessed by God of Love, the best stargazing spot in the imperial capital located in Cyprus is below.” Moschery said calmly, “It’s still a little far away from us now, so you don’t have to worry about being hit.”

       Qin Yun finally came to his senses. He looked at the emperor with a complicated expression, “…Do you know there will be a meteor shower today?”

       Moschery didn’t say anything, probably because he was tired of being stared at. The sentinel pushed his guide’s face away roughly, “Shut up and look at your stars.”

       Qin Yun giggled foolishly for a while, but after a while, he still couldn’t hold it back, “Since when did you start planning this? It took a long time to find this location, didn’t it?”

       Moschery lazily propped up his head, making it clear that he had no intention of answering.

       Qin Yun babbled, “Don’t be shy…” but no longer pressed for an answer.

       Zhongyan occasionally extended its claws as if trying to catch the tails of the shooting stars. In the thick ink-like night sky, the nebulae formed a colourful and radiant stream of light, decorating the darkness and falling upon the people nestled together.


       It seemed that no matter whether it was the beginning of the universe or the end of the world, they would never be separated.


       Yuanbao lay on Skarter’s shoulder, and Lin Dongliang sat cross-legged next to him, with the head of the king’s crocodile resting on his knees. The terrace where they stayed was the honeymoon presidential suite in Cyprus, the best place to watch the meteor shower.

       Lin Dongliang looked at the meteors flying in the sky and was a little surprised, “How did you find this place?”

       It was no wonder he would ask so. Although his childhood sweetheart could grow to love others, he didn’t seem to have many romantic cells. Perhaps because his spiritual link was a cold-blooded animal, even the owner’s physical condition was somewhat peculiar, such as being excessively sensitive to the cold in winter and having poor heat dissipation in summer, he would prefer to stay indoors and not go out all year round.

       The temperature in Cyprus was very low at night. Skarter found a thick cotton coat out of nowhere, folded his hands like an old man and put them in his sleeves.

       “I looked at His Majesty’s itinerary.” Skarter’s voice buzzed with a thick nasal tone, “He made an itinerary for watching the meteor shower… As expected, he is planning to take Qin Yun to see it.”

       Lin Dongliang opened his mouth, “…His Majesty’s boyfriend power is very high.”

       Skarter took out a roll of paper and started to blow his nose, “It’s not just high, it’s MAX. I even took a peek at his detailed itinerary map, from the schedule to the best viewing spots… He also drafted the scene dialogue. Even his dragon has a role to play.”

       Lin Dongliang: “…”

       Skarter: “Even on a secret mission, he never forgets to arrange a date casually.”

       Lin Dongliang was speechless, “Does Chen Xiao know?”

       “He’s probably just being used.” Skarter held the red panda into his arms like a hot water bag, “He played the super-sized lightbulb1unwanted third guest number one in His Majesty’s script.”

       Lin Dongliang: “…”


       Chen Xiao sneezed hard in the c0ckpit of the Stallion Balls. He was muttering in his mind, wondering if the lingering canon lass was cursing him again.

       “Are those two people back?” Chen Xiao asked his men.

       A small crew member replied, “Seems on their way back. Do you need to pick me up?”

       Chen Xiao thought for a while and called out, “Ali.”

       The bald burly man whose name was called turned around. He was only wearing a tank top, and his exposed skin was covered in large tattoos.

       “Go and help pull down the rope.” Chen Xiao ordered, “By the way, tell them that a merchant ship from Olympus will pass by in the early morning, and there is very important news on it.”


       When Qin Yun first entered the aircraft observatory, he saw Ali holding the rope.

       “You’re here to help?” Qin Yun smiled and waved to greet, but Ali did not respond. He concentrated on tightening the rope so that Qin Yun could land safely.

       Different from his bad and rough appearance, Ali was a silent and gentle person. He held him steady before stepping forward to untie his oxygen mask and hand over the warm clothes he had prepared.

       “Thank you.” Qin Yun trembled and hastily fumbled to put on the clothes. Without Zhongyan’s wings to block the wind and unable to always rely on Moschery’s embrace, it was truly exceptionally cold for a while.

       “Chen Xiao asked you to come?” Moschery took off the rope around his waist, “What’s the mission?”

       Ali repeated Chen Xiao’s words.

       Moschery pondered for a while and asked, “How to get on the other party’s ship.”

       Ali: “Unsurprisingly, it must be a theft.”

       This answer seemed to be within Moschery’s expectation, but Qin Yun didn’t understand, “Theft? What to steal?”

       Ali glanced at him, with a faint smile on the fierce man’s face, “Treasure, news, people… there is nothing we cannot steal.”

       Qin Yun: “Aren’t you… a merchant ship?”

       “It’s a merchant ship.” Ali said, “But we also have a more famous name.” He lowered his head and pointed to the tattoo of a five-pointed star on the back of his neck, “Star Thief.”
