Shi Yu lowered his voice, “Let go.”
Jiang ChengLi asked in a whisper, “Why?”
“Ordinary students don’t hold hands.”
Jiang ChengLi laughed out loud. “So, in student Shi’s eyes, taking the initiative to hold someone’s hand is what ordinary classmates wouldn’t do?” Shi Yu didn’t have time to retort. Jiang ChengLi’s voice deepened. “Then who’s hand have you held of your own accord?”
“…” Why did I think President Jiang was being unreasonable before?
“I haven’t held anyone’s hand. Anyway, let go.” Shi Yu turned his eyes aside, but found more curious stares behind him.
It made the situation worse.
Jiang Cheng Li sensed Shi Yu’s rebellious mood and didn’t get annoyed, just slowly let go of his hand, then looked at him.”So, I haven’t caught you yet.”
Shi Yu stared at him suspiciously. What the hell is this guy talking about?
“Didn’t find out?” Jiang ChengLi quietly reached out to tweak his fingertips again. “Or am I pursuing you too subtly?”
He looked down, somewhat lost, and gently nudged Shi Yu’s fingertips where they were resting on the table. “I’m not very capable at chasing people. If you feel that what I am doing isn’t good enough, bring it up. I’ll think of a better way.”
Shi Yu felt like a fire was burning his fingers, and drew back his hand in a panic. When he looked up again, the lady behind him was lightly calling their number. It was their turn to get the milk tea.
After they got the milk tea, Jiang ChengLi called a car and they went home together.
Once Zhong Tan moved out, Shi Yu worried about whether there would be any conflict between himself and Jiang ChengLi, but President Jiang was surprisingly good-tempered, and the two had lived together without any problems so far.
But Shi Yu suspected that tonight might be an exception.
After entering the door, he blurted out, “I’m going to take a shower,” and ran upstairs. His thoughts were a bit confused and he was disturbed by Jiang ChengLi’s depressed appearance just now.
Shi Yu realized that he and Jiang ChengLi had a misunderstanding about certain issues, or at least, Jiang ChengLi must have assumed wrongly. While he and Jiang ChengLi had a manageable interdependent pheromone relationship, he only liked the dragon. President Jiang was not the same.
He slowly finished his shower. Shi Yu felt that he’d almost sorted out the logic before he went downstairs, but when he opened the door, he found that the temperature in the house was very low.
It was as if a layer of ice fog had come from nowhere, and coldness filled the air.
When he came downstairs, President Jiang, who had also taken a bath, was sitting on the sofa. He had a pair of dragon horns in his hair and held the cup of milk tea he’d just bought. His eyes were dazed.
His little white cat behaved like it saw a big enemy. It sat next to the sofa, showed its teeth and hissed, all its hair on end. Jiang ChengLi wasn’t moved by the little cat that was trying to provoke him. He just drunk a third of the milk tea in his hand, and then held it still like a statue.
Shi Yu’s eyes brightened a little, like he discovered a treasure, at the sight of Jiang ChengLi’s dragon horns. All his thoughts were instantly disrupted. When he came down, the omega’s subtle deep sea pheromones were like a drop of water that fell into this cold swirling ice field, and quickly awakened the master of frost and snow.
Jiang ChengLi turned his face and struggled to see the person standing on the stairs as he gradually leaned back on the sofa. The pure white dragon tail behind him wagged at Shi Yu.
Meaning: Come here.
Shi Yu saw the big tail and wanted to grip it, but with Jiang ChengLi in human form, he couldn’t just jump over and hold him in his arms.
Student Shi put on a false reserve and dignity. A righteous face walked to the little white cat and a low voice reprimanded, “In a unilateral war with your master again? Not good.”
Now Shi Yu was close to the sofa. The man who was sitting there suddenly moved, and slender arms wrapped around his waist. The sky spun, and Shi Yu fell on the corner of the sofa, his expression a bit disoriented. Then he felt the man in front of him deliberately hug him like a wombat, and that long coveted dragon’s tail wrapped around his ankle, cold and cool.
It appeared that Jiang ChengLi found something to relax him. He gave a low sigh, then he buried his face in Shi Yu’s neck and delicately sniffed at his pheromones.
Shi Yu heard as the large tree bear in his arms muttered, “No good.”
Shi Yu blinked incredulously and tried to turn his right foot, only to be trapped by the large tail before he could exert any effort.
The alpha pheromones slowly spread out to envelop him with unchallenged dominance and clung to every inch of his body.
Shi Yu felt like a flour doughnut that collapsed into crumbs. He gently patted Jiang ChengLi, who was obviously in an abnormal state of mind. “President, can you get out of the way?”
Jiang ChengLi slowly raised his head and gazed at the hand on his shoulder for a moment. Suddenly, he opened his mouth and bit down with his tiger’s mouth. To be precise, it was gripping, like a small beast protecting its food.
Shi Yu, “…” Where did this childish ghost come from?
“You’re not okay. What’s wrong?”
Jiang ChengLi wasn’t answering, and remained still.
Shi Yu looked at the milk tea still held in Jiang ChengLi’s hand, and an astonishing thought popped into his head.
“It can’t be…” Couldn’t a dragon drink milk tea?
He reached out for it. Jiang ChengLi realised what he wanted and handed it over without a fuss. Shi Yu took a sip through the straw. Nothing came out except a mouthful of milk and pearls. Still, Jiang ChengLi was incredibly drunk and refused to move out of his arms.
Jiang ChengLi stared at his thin lips. Shi Yu wasn’t very experienced at sipping these drinks, and his lower lip was still shining with a little creamy light.
This detail was unnoticed by the omega, but the alpha’s Adam’s apple bobbed a little.
Jiang ChengLi’s mind brought up a novel idea. He wanted to take that bit of flavor between his lips. But the thought was inappropriate, so he quickly looked away at the cup of milk tea.
Shi Yu had just put it back when Jiang ChengLi picked it up. He held the omega’s gaze and bit the straw he had just used.
Shi Yu’s heart throbbed uncontrollably.
The end of Jiang ChengLi’s eyes and his cheeks were red like he was slightly inebriated. This added to his attraction and made him even more handsome.
If Jiang ChengLi was sober, Shi Yu would’ve liked to ask him how he managed to look so good, even when he was drinking milk tea. Shi Yu was unnerved and reached out to push Jiang ChengLi away, but was easily contained.
Jiang ChengLi licked the corner of his lips, narrowed his eyes and gazed at the omega in front of him. “Tasty.”
“…Then you can drink it yourself. There are two more cups.”
“I want to hold you after drinking.”
“…” Shi Yu gave a ‘tsk,’ looked away and scolded him through his teeth. “Drunkard.”
Fortunately, Zhong Tan had moved out. Shi Yu hadn’t any idea how to explain this scene.
After being scolded, the drunken President Jiang was quiet for a moment, then, with downcast eyes, set the milk tea in his hand aside and gradually let go of Shi Yu. Shi Yu breathed a sigh of relief and moved his legs which were hanging on the ground to a more comfortable position. His instincts still told him that Jiang ChengLi was going to provoke a fight with him later.
Jiang ChengLi put the milk tea on the table, got off the sofa and squatted in front of the little white cat on the ground who was still having a unilateral war with him.
Shi Yu watched curiously. He thought he was going to fight with the white cat or bully it, but instead Nan Zhong’s languid and cool Kaolin Flower said in a muffled voice that was aggrieved and pitiful, “He scolded me.”
Shi Yu, “…”
White cat, “…” Didn’t you come here to fight?
Jiang ChengLi dropped his eyelashes and distinctly spat out one word at a time. “I was drunk and dizzy, and he was mean to me.”
The little white cat’s hair stood on end, its teeth were showing and it was making intimidating noises. Shi Yu changed his position. He leaned back on the couch and watched Jiang ChengLi make something out of nothing.
His long fingertips nudged the cat’s nose as he lightly touched it. “When I turned into a dragon, he liked to come at me. He wouldn’t even let go of the dragon’s horns and tail, but he didn’t take care of me when I was drunk…He called me a drunk.”
He was so aggravated.
Shi Yu tried to hold back his laughter but failed. Then he saw Jiang ChengLi’s cell phone on the sofa. He opened it. There wasn’t a password lock.
Shi Yu whispered, “Then let’s borrow it. Only you can see it anyway.”
This unique Jiang ChengLi had to be recorded for his own eyes. He turned on the camera, switched to the video function, and pointed it at the other man. “Jiang ChengLi.”
President Jiang, who had been talking to the kitten, was sitting on the floor while one hand rested casually on the edge of the table. He didn’t turn around.
Shi Yu approached with the phone. “Turn around. I’ll show you a baby.”
Jiang ChengLi was mercilessly teasing the cat, as if he recognized the snare laid for him by the omega, and stubbornly refused to move.
Shi Yu hadn’t expected him to be so crisis-aware and came off the couch. “Aren’t you drunk? Do you know I’m filming you?”
The result was, when he reached Jiang ChengLi, suddenly his wrist was clasped and pressed to the side of the sofa.
Fortunately, the floor was covered with carpet, so he wasn’t hurt. Otherwise such a big movement would certainly have caused him an injury.
Shi Yu was taken completely off-guard. His eyes trembled slightly as he watched as the alpha in front of him carefully and methodically pinned both his hands above his head. One hand took over the phone and deliberately turned the camera on him.
“Little omega, what do you want to do?”
“…” Shi Yu struggled, but found that he wasn’t able to break free.
This was the real trap.
Jiang ChengLi’s eyes were red. The previous clear and cold expression was three parts arrogance, the attitude of a victor slowly admiring their trophies, as he recorded Shi Yu with his phone.
The beautiful features, lean neck, shoulders, collarbone…
He looked at the omega in the camera. “What do you say, little captive, how will you be punished?”
Shi Yu felt humiliated. He hadn’t thought he would be unable to resist a drunkard. He had an expression rarely seen and it was mixed with regret. “Nothing.”
“How can that be?” Jiang ChengLi’s eyes darkened and narrowed.
Shi Yu instinctively sensed the danger. A dominant alpha was really not to be messed with, no matter what the circumstance. Jiang ChengLi sensed the slight change in the omega’s mood, looked at him for a moment and slowly sighed.
He lightly held the phone on Shi Yu’s lips, exactly where the camera was, then he leaned down and gently dropped a kiss on the thin lips reflected in the screen.
“The punishment is over.”
