Shi Yu hadn’t yet come up with an answer, when a footstep came from downstairs. It was Lu Zhao. He hurriedly concealed the little ice dragon behind him and looked at the person who came out of the stairway as if nothing had happened. The little ice dragon stumbled from his not-so-careful action and hid behind him rather unhappily.
Lu Zhao was holding a carton of milk in his hand. He obviously hadn’t seen Shi Yu there. His hand kept poking the straw for three seconds before he said in surprise, “Shi Yu?”
Shi Yu looked at him expressionlessly, but in his mind he was thinking about his own ungentle move just now. He reached out to pet the little ice dragon, to express his apology, but found his back empty.
When did it run away? Where had it gone?
Shi Yu’s face changed slightly. He stood up and looked around him, confirmed that the little ice dragon wasn’t nearby and became a little anxious.
Lu Zhao saw the anxiety in his expression, and couldn’t help but feel a little lost. “What are you looking for?”
Shi Yu shook his head and said in a casual voice, “Nothing. I’ll go back first.”
Lu Zhao followed his pace then took a step to the right, which blocked his way. “Shi Yu, I’m sorry about that day.”
After being dragged away by Jiang ChengLi that day, Lu Zhao realized what he had done to the omega was out of line, but it was too late to apologize and Jiang ChengLi hadn’t given him another chance to touch Shi Yu.
Although Shi Yu’s memory of the latter part of that day wasn’t too clear, he remembered that Lu Zhao had lost his temper a bit because of his pheromones. He didn’t need Lu Zhao to apologize to him.
“It has nothing to do with you. It’s because I didn’t bring the suppressor and blocker.”
“No, it’s also because I was reckless. I shouldn’t have just touched you that day when you were in heat.” Lu Zhao pursed his lips and finally asked, “Did Jiang ChengLi do anything to you that day?”
He knew what he was doing, so he was a bit of a stalker, but the feeling was too weird. He clearly understood that Shi Yu and Jiang ChengLi were separated, but the alpha still showed a rather horrible possessiveness towards him. He was afraid that Jiang ChengLi would force Shi Yu, or do something irreparable. After all, the more dominant an alpha was, the more he would do things that crossed the line.
“He didn’t do anything to me.” Shi Yu sensed the hint in Lu Zhao’s tone, and subconsciously spoke up for Jiang ChengLi. “I was the one who bothered him.”
“I went to the school doctor’s office after school that day, and the school doctor said there were no existing suppressors in the school that day.” Lu Zhao gazed at the corner of Shi Yu’s eyes. “If Jiang ChengLi threatened you or pressured you to do something with his pheromones, you can absolutely tell me.”
Shi Yu looked at Lu Zhao for a moment and smiled. “Lu Zhao, why do you have so much malice towards Jiang ChengLi?”
Lu Zhao frowned but held back his anger. “Because he once marked you, then acted like he liked you so much that he had to have you, and now he’s spending the whole day with that school kid–“
“Good afternoon.” A warm, deep male voice interrupted Lu Zhao’s increasingly agitated voice as Jiang ChengLi slowly walked up from the stairs.
It looked like he had heard the whole conversation. But Jiang ChengLi’s eyebrows were relaxed, and his expression was so calm that it was hard to tell if he was angry about what Lu Zhao had just said.
Shi Yu unexpectedly felt a triple dose of guilt at the sight of him. He hadn’t believed Lu Zhao’s words, but was worried that Jiang ChengLi misunderstood him. Lu Zhao silently confronted Jiang ChengLi for a few moments. The alpha separately experienced the emotions hidden in the pheromones of both sides.
He stared at Jiang ChengLi. “Did I say something wrong? You appear to be careless, but you actually care a lot about how others are pursuing you, right?” Lu Zhao said coldly. “To you, an omega is just a collection item–“
“Lu Zhao, when did I get stuck with a kid?” He was shouting Lu Zhao’s name, but was looking in Shi Yu’s direction. It was as if the words weren’t a question, but a slightly aggravated defense.
Lu Zhao gritted his teeth. “How come I didn’t find our Kaolin Flower’s President Jiang so pretentious before?”
Jiang ChengLi thought about it for a moment, but still looked at Shi Yu. “I’m telling the truth. The senior student President is taking over my job. I have the responsibility to teach him, but only to teach him. I don’t quite understand what Student Lu means by sticking together.”
His tone was unhurried, and his voice was open and easy. He spoke every word in a pretentious way, but because it sounded good, there was no sense of dissonance.
Lu Zhao took a deep breath. Only two words came to mind – green tea. 1
Shi Yu heard the message that Jiang ChengLi was trying to send to him. He felt, in some ways, that Lu Zhao was indeed a bit aggressive.
Lu Zhao didn’t relent. “Then yesterday, didn’t the senior student President also go to your house? And he stayed at your house until eight o’clock at night? An alpha in their susceptible period is not free to see any omega. Don’t you know this, President Jiang?”
Jiang ChengLi said he really didn’t know. After all, he spent the whole night with a certain omega last night. The bath alone almost made him lose his mind and turn back to his human form. When was there time to care about the new student president?
Jiang ChengLi, “It’s a misunderstanding. I spent yesterday at my uncle’s house.” His gaze still only followed Shi Yu, and he subtly spoke with the aggrievance of being misunderstood. “What I said is true.”
Shi Yu wasn’t very good at looking away, and was thinking, This person’s talk was just talk. He was winking, what’s the matter?
“The mouth on you, how can you say…” Lu Zhao, in hindsight. “Aren’t you in your susceptible period? You shouldn’t be able to go back to school now.”
“…” Jiang ChengLi was silent for a moment, then lied without changing his face. “I came to look for something. I just came back to school temporarily.”
Lu Zhao sneered. “Then you have a lot of power. What are you looking for?”
“A small, white one.” Jiang ChengLi stopped his next words just in time, and looked at Shi Yu. “But you should know.”
Shi Yu seemed puzzled.
The little ice dragon was raised by Jiang ChengLi? Jiang ChengLi was the owner?
Lu Zhao then realized that he was being played. He glared at the student President, who was still pretending to be innocent in front of him, and coldly threw down a sentence, “I’ll go back first.”
After the person left, Shi Yu and Jiang ChengLi remained in the same place. A long time passed. Shi Yu hadn’t seen him move, and asked tentatively, “Don’t you still have to look for something?”
Jiang ChengLi curved his eyes and smiled, “Well. So, have you seen him?”
Shi Yu wasn’t yet certain that Jiang ChengLi was looking for the little ice dragon, so he pretended not to understand. “What?”
“He disappeared from the music room on Monday afternoon. I’ve been looking for him for two days.” Jiang ChengLi looked at his dodging eyes and whispered in his ear. “I’m very anxious. If you see him, can you tell me? He is a small ice dragon. Pure white, especially sticky.”
The author has something to say:
President Jiang’s new attribute = little green tea with a heart of gold.
