The very next morning, the closely shut door had been opened, Gu Wen Zhu came out, rejuvenated. He seemed to be in a good mood, his face glowing. He was humming and went to cook breakfast.
In the bed, Xia Yi curled up in the blanket, complaining tearfully to 179.
“Really, he is not humane, look at me, there is not one part of my body that is fine, even the back of my feet have been bitten.” Xia Yi said, sobbing.
“I told you not to make reckless decisions. What is so bad with being a virgin? Look at how great I am. You would not listen no matter how I put it, I don’t even care anymore.” The jealous system gloated.
179 you really cannot tell that I am showing off?
Hearing the footfalls from outside, Xia Yi quickly closed his eyes to pretend that he was still sleeping.
With a bowl of porridge in his one hand, a dish of buns in the other, Gu Wen Zhu came in. Seeing Xia Yi asleep, he placed everything onto the cabinet at the side of the bed. He leaned slightly to peek and saw Xia Yi’s eyelashes were shaking a little though his eyes were closed, his eyes were rolling under his eyelids. He was clearly awake but pretending that he was not.
Gu Wen Zhu chuckled and sat down at the side of the bed. He stretched his arms to hold Xia Yi in his arms together with the blanket. His kiss fell on the top of Xia Yi’s head. He said affectionately, “Piggie, get up and have breakfast.”
Xia Yi was still keeping his eyes closed, not speaking a word. Then he felt that the aroma of the pork porridge was lingering around his nose. He opened a small gap between his eyelids and found that a spoonful of porridge was right in front of his mouth.
The intense smell of the pork porridge wafted into his nose. He realised his hunger at this moment with his stomach growling.
Xia Yi could not keep pretending and swallowed the spoonful of porridge down.
The heated pork porridge went down his esophagus, making him feel warm and comfortable.
Gu Wen Zhu fed Xia Yi one spoon after the other. The bowl of porridge he brought in had all been eaten in a short while.
Xia Yi was eating merrily, not noticing Gu Wen Zhu staring at the tip of his tongue emotionally with his calm expression.
When he had finished eating, Gu Wen Zhu tidied up the place. Xia Yi covered himself again with the blanket. He did not have enough sleep the night before and prepared to have a good sleep to compensate for that.
Xia Yi heard the door being pushed open again but was too lazy to open his eyes, he only made a sound with his nose.
The blanket was pulled away from him. Gu Wen Zhu held Xia Yi in his arms with his firm and warm chest leaning towards Xia Yi.
Xia Yi sensed that something was wrong instantly and quivered. The alert in his mind was ringing, making him fully awake.
“No no, go away go away…”
At noon, Qi Zhou stood in the yard with his hair combed meticulously. In front of him stood Meng Wan Zi with his hands clasped behind him.
Looking around, the doors were shut as if there were nobody here. Kirin sluggishly looked up, and lied back into his bed to continue sleeping when he saw the two.
Everyone in the family is sleeping, so I am sleeping too.
“Anyone? Are we eating?” Qi Zhou’s voice rang in discontent after a while.
He could not help it. He and his master were hungry.
The door opened with a creaking sound. Gu Wen Zhu came out with a delighted face. Qi Zhou thought he saw a groom, only lacking a big red ribbon in front of him.
“Wait, I will cook.” Gu Wen Zhu was rarely good to these believers of the Fang Xian Dao. He said with a smile and walked to the kitchen.
Meng Wan Zi looked behind him and did not see Xia Yi. Thus, he asked, “Where is Xia? Why is he not here?”
Gu Wen Zhu halted his footsteps with uneasiness on his face, “He is sick.”
“Sick? Is it severe? Let me see him.” Meng Wan Zi stepped forward to move himself into the house, “I have some medical knowledge, I can give him a prescription.”
“It’s nothing, just a cold, he will be well after resting for a day.” Gu Wen Zhu quickly stopped him.
“I need to see him even if it’s just a cold. He is mortal, unlike us, it will not be good to have a sickness for long.” Meng Wan Zi talked when he was walking to the house.
His sight had been blocked suddenly, a figure moved swiftly in front of him, shutting off his way.
Meng Wan Zi stopped walking and looked up in confusion.
“I said, he will be well with some rest, he cannot be exposed to the wind right now, he is sweating.” Gu Wen Zhu stood in front of him, his voice ringing coldly, his eyes containing hostility with the ends of his eyes raised. It was hard to tell what was on his mind.
At that moment, Meng Wan Zi suddenly had a weird feeling. This normal farmer standing in his way was giving him pressure that was not visible to the eye.
“Okay okay okay, I am not seeing him, I am not seeing him.” Meng Wan Zi felt cold and was afraid to take any steps further.
Qi Zhou twitched his lips, thinking in his arrogant mind that these mortal humans did not know chalk from cheese.
Gu Wen Zhu was quick. He finished cooking lunch swiftly with a whole table of food. He pulled out an empty dish, taking a little from every plate, leaving the others on the table, and looked at Meng Wan Zi, “Old Meng, go ahead.”
“Okay okay, don’t mind me.” Meng Wan Zi replied immediately with his hands on his sides. He watched Gu Wen Zhu take the gathered food and walk away.
Why am I afraid of this farmer? Those eyes were familiar.
He had an appearance that looked like the leader, but his expressions just now reminded him of somebody else.
Qi Zhou did not pull out his handkerchief to clean the seat until Gu Wen Zhu walked out and closed the door behind him. He took his own bowl out to fill it with rice and began to eat with small bites.
In the room, Xia Yi was sitting in the corner of the bed with a fierce look and messy hair, “I am not eating! I said it and I won’t eat! Remove them!”
“Sorry, sorry Yi, it was all my fault, I was not able to control myself.” Gu Wen Zhu apologized submissively. Seeing the blanket slide down, showing some purple and blue, Gu Wen Zhu felt guilty and sorry.
“Only a few bites. Okay? Just have a few bites.” Gu Wen Zhu persuaded with gentle words. He held a spoonful of food in front of Xia Yi’s mouth.
“Was it your bad? I am asking you, have you realised what you have done and introspect?” Xia Yi moved his sore body slightly with complaints.
“It was me, it was all my fault, I should not have done that when you were %@%%&*&*…&…&” Gu Wen Zhu’s mouth had been covered by Xia Yi, Xia Yi growled exasperatedly, “They are still outside, lower your voice.”
Gu Wen Zhu looked at him innocently and nodded.
Xia Yi released him and side-eyed him, “Feed me.”
When they had finished eating, the two in the yard had already left. Gu Wen Zhu then began to tidy up.
Xia Yi was sore from head to toe and wanted to lie down. Even doing this made him grind his teeth in pain, he could only move slowly as if he had a fracture.
When he was finally down, he stared at the ceiling blankly, “179, really, he is not humane.”
179 did not want to answer and even wanted to spit on him.
Just when he was falling asleep, Xia Yi suddenly felt a heat rising from his abdomen. Without the time for him to recover from the sudden feeling, that heat surged towards his limbs. Abruptly, he felt his blood boiling, his heart rate rising, and his limbs became strengthless.
What is happening to me? Am I transmigrating again? It does not seem like it. Xia Yi looked around, the air was not moving, the furniture did not twist. Am I sick? Do I have a Heat stroke? Flu? Or some other emergency?
“179, 179 come, there is something wrong. I am not fooling you, my whole body does not feel right.” Xia Yi screamed for the system in panic, “Am I having an emergency?”
“Host, do not panic, let me check it for you.” 179 was calm and professional, as if he was a sophisticated system. Xia Yi took in a deep breath with an effort to suppress the unknown heat in him, waiting for the check up results from the system.
“179, if I have some incurable disease, don’t tell me, at least let me marry Zhu first. Nevermind, just tell me, I should not marry Zhu. It will just hinder him, he will have to marry again after I die.”
179 did not speak for quite a while, as if things were going bad.
Xia Yi’s anxiety was increasing as time went by. People searched information online and believed they had an incurable disease, but this was a whole other level for Xia Yi, he was even planning the place to build his graveyard.
He started to imagine Gu Wen Zhu seeing him growing slimmer and slimmer day by day and Gu Wen Zhu would punch the wall when he was alone, but still pretend to be tough when he saw Xia Yi. Tears were welling in Xia Yi’s eyes.
My body is heating up, am I going to explode?
“179, any results yet?”
“Host, after thorough inspections, the results show that you are not sick, but rather, you are in heat.” 179’s voice broke through the silence, “It may be caused by the hormones produced last night.”
“H…Heat?” Xia Yi looked as if he had been struck by lightning.
“Yes, heehee.” 179’s laughter rang along with his gloat.
But I am not single anymore, I don’t know what you are gloating about.
Xia Yi calmed down after figuring it out, and sneered towards 179.
Gu Wen Zhu was pushing the door to come in with a bowl in his hand, he called to him lovingly, “Yi, come and drink this stock and rest.”
Just when he finished saying so, Gu Wen Zhu froze and looked in front of him, stunned.
Xia Yi had sat up, holding the blankets and staring at him. Blushing, his almond eyes looked drowsy and appealing…
“Zhu, come, quick.” Xia Yi’s voice was soft and appealing too…
