The light of dusk fell on the piano keys, a warm orange color bathed the young figure draped there.
Lying in the middle of the light, only the size of a hand, covered with scales as clear and beautiful as frost and snow, back spines along the graceful lines of the spine, curled tail and wings that shivered.
It was a little ice dragon!
Shi Yu seemed to have been taken away by a magic box. He looked at the spot for a moment before he dared go forward to discover whether it was real or fake. After all the emotions, he was left with only one thought; to pick it up.
Without any feelings of trepidation or helplessness, Shi Yu looked at the little thing in front of him. He only felt that it must be real and should exist.
Once embraced in his arms, Shi Yu gently touched the little ice dragon’s slightly trembling tail. Soft, hard, and a little cold like broken ice. The little ice dragon meekly and obediently lay in his hand. A pair of beautiful blue eyes looked at him. No resistance, surprisingly docile.
He had no idea where it came from. Shi Yu’s mind was flooded with thoughts, all struggles and considerations scattered to nothing. The only knowledge left was, this little thing needs me.
Shi Yu snuck the little ice dragon into his pocket and brought it home. He avoided Shi Lan’s questions before dinner, went back to his bedroom first and locked the door.
The little ice dragon was hidden in his coat pocket and was in a wilted condition when he brought it out. Shi Yu had just placed it in the middle of his mattress when the cool little tail suddenly hooked itself around his little finger.
The little ice dragon gently rubbed its horns against his fingers and stared at him, the pupils of its pure water-colored eyes mixed with supplication and piteousness, as it licked him with its tiny long tongue. The licked place seemed to have a layer of tingling inductance. Shi Yu felt his hands tremble.
He carefully moved his hand out. The little ice dragon rubbed along his knuckles before it climbed into his palm, then moved its head down to rub his wrist. It gave him a comfortable loose look, and their pheromones gently entwined.
They were pheromones that it liked.
Shi Lan was calling his name downstairs. Shi Yu touched the little ice dragon’s wings. “Be good and stay in my room for a while. I’ll come up to you after dinner.”
The little ice dragon stared at him, and appeared unable to understand the language he spoke; ignorant. Shi Yu’s heart melted as he looked down. He kissed the little ice dragon’s horn when it wasn’t looking, then put it on the pillow. “Wait for me to come back.”
The little ice dragon obediently rubbed its head against his fingertips, meek as can be.
After he left, the little ice dragon lying on the pillow was surrounded by mist. Jiang ChengLi quietly transformed back into his original form, trapped in the light fragrance of the deep sea. He reached out, pressed Shi Yu’s fluffy pillow behind him and looked around at the place he hadn’t been for a long time. His lips pressed slightly.
Before today, Jiang ChengLi seriously thought about the problem and came to the conclusion that he wanted to wait for Shi Yu like a human being. Wait for him to become an adult and enter college, then pursue a confession in a step-by-step manner.
But today Lu Zhao made it clear to him how jealous he was. When he saw Lu Zhao touch Shi Yu, he was almost instantly angered…not to mention that he was a dragon. Dragons were vengeful.
He couldn’t stand the idea of someone he liked being taken advantage of by another alpha.
Since Shi Yu liked dragons, he was a dragon. Then, day and night, he would be able to never endingly be with his omega like a piece of putty. His tail, belly and horn were all his. He wanted to make Shi Yu inseparable from himself.
The school’s gentle and cold President Jiang, was now childishly hugging Shi Yu’s pillow, his chest cavity was dark and gloomy with his thoughts.
If he blacked out, it would only be because he was forced by his own mother.
Shi Yu’s dinner was over so quickly that Shi Lan was still a little worried when he left the table. “Your teacher called me this morning and said you were in a special period. Is it enough to eat so much?”
“It’s enough.” Shi Yu hung his eyes and pretended to be sleepy. “Good night.”
Shi Lan looked at his back. “If you’re still tired tomorrow, I’ll ask you to take a day off.”
Shi Yu closed the door to his room. His first thought was to go to the bed and find the little dragon cub he had picked up.
He lifted the quilt and found the little thing was curled up in a ball on his pillow, drowsy. It stirred and its sleepy blue eyes glanced at Shi Yu. The air filled with a soft handful of winter pine snow.
It’s so cute.
Shi Yu whispered, “Did I disturb your sleep?”
The little ice dragon climbed up and flew slowly to his body. It rubbed Shi Yu’s fingertips. Meaning: no.
Shi Yu hugged the little ice dragon in his arms and felt more and more incredible. He couldn’t remember how old he was when it started, but he’d always loved dragons, and this kind of thing seemed to have a fatal attraction to him.
Jiang ChengLi felt Shi Yu’s soft fingertips as they gently wrapped around his tail. His eyes closed meekly and insatiably.
“Why were you at school?”
“Can I keep you?”
“Do you still have kindred spirits?”
The omega spoke in a low, soft voice, mixed with doting and careful words, all with a gentleness he had never heard again since his memory loss.
Once upon a time, Jiang ChengLi would get a little jealous when he found out that Shi Yu really liked dragons, but now he only felt grateful. Luckily, he was able to approach Shi Yu in this way. Shi Yu couldn’t get enough of the little pet he picked up. When he looked around, he realized it was already eight o’clock.
He collected a set of clothes then turned back before going into the bathroom. Jiang ChengLi, who was all drowsy from his rubbing, was suddenly placed on Shi Yu’s shoulder.
“Let me take you to have a bath. Can you touch water?”
The sleepy little ice dragon instantly woke up. Big blue eyes gazed at the side of Shi Yu’s face.
As long as he was a dragon, he could be invited to share a bath?
Shi Yu noticed the little thing was looking at him, and lightly nudged its dragon horn. “After all, you’re the one I picked up, and you’re going to sleep with me at night, so of course you need to wash.”
He thought about it, and rummaged through a desk drawer, then pulled out a yellow bathing duckling.
This was bought for Alice and each room had one. Before, Shi Yu felt it was childish and hadn’t used it, but today it would come in handy.
He could give it to the little ice dragon as a companion.
Jiang ChengLi showed his considerable dissatisfaction with the fact that he was soaked in a warm wash basin and forced to share a bath with a small yellow duck. He even kicked away the yellow plastic duck several times, but Shi Yu misunderstood and thought he was moving it to play and helped him put the duckling companion back in again and again.
The little ice dragon’s dream of bathing with the omega was shattered. Shi Yu wrapped him up in a new towel and tried to take him out. But unexpectedly, just outside, the little dragon cub suddenly struggled out of the towel and flew into his arms.
Shi Yu was quick to catch him. As an afterthought, he said, “You want to come with me?”
The little ice dragon made a low humming sound.
As if instantly compelled by him, Shi Yu rubbed his head against his dragon horn. “Then let’s wash again.”
