After a night of heavy rain, the mountain roads were muddy and rugged. Water dripped from the eaves, and roosters and dogs called out one after another. The man in the room spread out his hands and feet, staring at the ceiling beams with both eyes.
He remembered what had happened in the first two books. The memories kept playing back and forth in his mind, making him extremely irritable.
In the first book he watched Xin Liang die at the grave, and in the second he died in the hands of Shen Cheng.
The past was no longer like smoke, but clear as day.
Lu Shenxing scratched his scalp and asked with a sullen face, "Wasn't it erased? Why can I still remember?"
"Ding, the system is restarting."
Lu Shenxing, "..."
There was a knock at the door, "Cheng-ge, are you up? Breakfast is ready."
Lu Shenxing didn't say anything. He was consumed by all kinds of messy emotions, and now he just wanted quiet.
"Cheng-ge, I'm going to water the fields first."
The sound of footsteps gradually faded away. Lu Shenxing touched his cigarette case, and drew the last cigarette out and lit it. The smell of nicotine permeated his mouth, making him sober.
He suddenly remembered his dream last night.
It wasn't that he'd never had a wet dream before but this one was especially realistic, very pleasurable, and very...painful.
There were only two people who could have given him that kind of experience. Did he dream of Xin Liang or Shen Cheng?
Lu Shenxing opened his underwear, reached in and groped around. The expression on his face was strange, the place he touched was very dry, not even a little bit wet.
He looked down and found that his underwear were the black ones he wore before going to bed, but they seemed to smell of disinfectant.
Lu Shenxing suddenly jumped up from the bed, why were his Juhua Ling and Hao Lu both missing?
His eyes narrowed, he picked up a small object stuck in the end of the bed. The texture of the plastic was very thick. He put it to his nose and smelled it. It smelled a little like an apple.
Last night was not a dream.
Lu Shenxing jumped out of the bed and rummaged through the cramped room. He found that there was no dust on the edges or ends of the entire bed. It seemed that a ghost came in and cleaned last night.
It definitely wasn’t a ghost.
Lu Shenxing pulled out a chair and sat on it, trying to recall what happened last night. He could only remember one pair of hands, and suppressed gasps and groans in his ear.
Running his hand across the surface of the table, Lu Shenxing narrowed his eyes. Only one person he knew was so fastidious about his surroundings.
Just replaced his underwear and acted like nothing had happened. He’s really amazing.
Lu Shenxing crushed the cigarette butt out and sneered twice.
Back in T city, Lu Shenxing went to Cheng Tiandao's home and asked bluntly, "Did Cheng Zi return to China?"
Cheng Tiandao was confused, "No, I was on the phone with Xiao Zi yesterday."
Lu Shenxing didn't say a word, and went to look around in Cheng Zi's room.
"Lao Qi, what happened?" Cheng Tiandao seemed to notice he was being strange.
"Nothing." Lu Shenxing left without waiting.
The more Cheng Tiandao pondered, the more disturbed he became. He went to see his partner, looking for some comfort.
Fang Wen patted the back of his hand, "Xiao Zi is an adult, he is responsible for his own actions, as for Lao Qi..."
She didn't say anymore, the other party had promised.
Lu Shenxing made a call, and the secretary quickly found out what he wanted. Cheng Zi took a redeye flight back to China, and there was no ticket for a return trip.
He’s still in the country, but he didn't know where he was hiding. He was like a kid who had done something wrong, and was afraid of being caught by his parents.
"Make up a reason to spread news about me, say I was hit by a car, beaten up, food poisoning, or something." Lu Shenxing frowned and said, "make sure it mentions the hospital where I’m staying."
The secretary looked at the man sitting on the leather chair with horror, Mr. Cheng, are you okay?
"You have ten minutes." Lu Shenxing raised his hand to look at his watch, and said sharply.
The secretary immediately turned on ten-centimeter high heels and rushed out in a panic.
Upon arriving at the hospital, Lu Shenxing sat in a chair, clasped his hands, and closed his eyelids casually, like a hunter who had set up a trap, waiting patiently for the prey to fall in.
At 3:30 in the afternoon, the door of the ward was gently pushed open from the outside, and the figure of a young man appeared at the door. He saw the man in the chair and his worry was replaced by consternation.
"Aren’t you abroad, what did you run back here for?" Lu Shenxing looked at the startled young man. He raised his eyebrows, the young man’s hair was dyed black, and he looked much more obedient.
Cheng Zi knew he’d been had, turned his head to run away, behind him came the man's mocking voice, "Shouldn’t you say something to your Xiao Shu? For example, did you sleep well last night? How is your health?"
Cheng Zi’s sore waist ached reflexively, and his steps quickened.
"Want to run?" Lu Shenxing squeezed Cheng Zi's wrist, pressed his knees into the back of his legs and pressed him against the wall, grabbing the back of his pants.
Cheng Zi felt cold air on his ass, and his face flushed, "Let go!"
Lu Shenxing's mouth twitched, and the iconic door made by the same manufacturer explained everything.
