Luci’s words made Jiang Ci perplexed for a moment, because he could hear that the words said in a rather light tone were actually quite serious. Luci would care about this matter, he’d be serious about this matter, and whether the attitude he showed on top of that was exclusive or not…
As soon as the question arose, Jiang Ci questioned this.
It seemed to count. The desire to be exclusive was an inevitable accompaniment of ‘like,’ but did the desire to be exclusive mean that Luci ‘liked’ him in such a way?
Jiang Ci was not sure. Just as every race wanted to be favored by God, and had a certain natural hostility toward other races, it seemed that this could be considered an exclusive desire for God. But on second thought, Luci showing his desire for exclusivity was not about anything else, it was just about kissing…
Jiang Ci jumped repeatedly between what he felt was right and what was not. Luci was still waiting for his response, and for once, Jiang Ci felt a slight sense of wanting to avoid this. After all, no matter how he responded to the demands in the other person’s words, he seemed to have a strange feeling.
But apparently, reality did not allow him to escape. Facing Luci’s gaze, Jiang Ci could only respond, “Okay…”
Why exactly did it become necessary for him to respond to such a request, Jiang Ci pondered in his head. Although his response was short, it was indeed a yes.
Jiang Ci’s thought was simple: he would never do it again anyway, so let’s just agree to it, it doesn’t matter.
Jiang Ci would never have thought that, after he answered so vaguely, Luci would look at him for a few seconds and ask him, “When will you do it to me again?”
Jiang Ci was stuck.
Do it to him again…?
Jiang Ci opened his mouth but could not speak, and his mind could not think of an appropriate answer at the moment.
And Luci continued to ask him, “Will there be any today?”
The succession of questions gave Jiang Ci no room to think, and gave him the illusion of being approached step by step.
As soon as the words were out of his mouth, Jiang Ci already felt something was wrong, but he was immediately followed up with another question, “Tomorrow?”
“Not today or tomorrow.”Jiang Ci felt that this could not be delayed at all, but other than that, he had no new solution at the moment.
Jiang Ci made two excuses and saw Luci’s eyes drop slightly, “Are you not going to do it to me again?”
Jiang Ci was speechless.
“But didn’t you just promise that you would only do it to me?” Luci added.
These two sentences were not actually related in any way, but Jiang Ci was caught in the loop.
Obviously it was only a kiss, and a kiss on the cheek, and using ‘this kind of thing’ to refer to it made Jiang Ci feel that there was something subtly different about it, but he couldn’t say what the problem was.
“I know.” Jiang Ci stopped the conversation. Jiang Ci stopped the conversation, and after a pause said, “Now then.
A kiss to settle the matter once and for all would be fine. With this thought in mind, Jiang Ci looked at the silver-haired Celestial in front of him and motioned for them to lower his head a little.
A Celestials’ innate arrogance made it difficult for them to lower their heads to others, but this did not include when they were in front of Jiang Ci.
Luci lowered his head a little, and Jiang Ci watched, suddenly wanting to go back on his words. However, being gazed at by the other party’s colorful eyes, Jiang Ci could only keep going.
Coming one step closer, Jiang Ci touched Luci’s face extremely quickly and then left.
It felt like kissing a work of art, as no-one could deny the silver-haired Celestials’ perfect posture and appearance.
“Okay?” Jiang Ci said.
A casual, accidental kiss was still different from an aggressive one, and Luci didn’t say anything else at this point, responding softly in a monotone with a faint eyebrow movement, “Yes.”
The system hadn’t bothered to close its eyes, and if it had a plate of melon seeds, and it had hands and a mouth, it would be peeling them now and watching the show.
Only three of them could be saved, and the other three would be fine if they did not cause any problems.
Having left the incubator, Jiang Ci decided to go to see Ivy first.
He had heard that Ivy had arrived at Dragon Island last night, but Jiang Ci hadn’t seen anyone yet, so he had to go there today, otherwise he thought that Ivy might be unhappy because Jiang ci hadn’t approached him yet.
The situation was more or less as Jiang Ci had guessed. Ivy had come to Dragon Island to collect a debt as he said, and he did show it in his behavior. The first thing he did when the floating ship landed was that he went to claim the debt from the Dragon Race. Though in fact, he came here because he didn’t feel comfortable leaving a certain Black Dragon alone with Jiang Ci and wanted to see more of him.
But now that the words have been said, Ivy’s behavior would not deviate, even if his heart was really different.
There could be no deviation.
This was Ivy’s way.
It was just that he was a little unhappy when one night passed and the next day he did not see anyone he wanted to see. God must have known he was in this place, so couldn’t He come and see him?
Ivy was still sitting in his seat in the reception room when the idea came to him, but his expression was cool and aloof, and his pursed lips showed that he was not so happy. He couldn’t actively seek out God, or his actions would contradict what he had said.
So Ivy sat there for a couple of minutes…
Before three minutes had passed, he stood up.
Just then, Jiang Ci pushed the door open and Ivy sat back in his seat a second after glancing around.
Jiang Ci found the person smoothly, looked at him and smiled, “Cheryl told me you were here, so I came over to see how you’re doing.”
One second Ivy was pursing his lips, the next second he was back to his normal self, “The negotiation with the Dragons went well, you don’t have to come to see me.” Afterwards, he took a look at the silver-haired Celestial who was there with Jiang Ci, and suddenly asked, “Did you let him stay with you last night?”
Ivy had heard from the other Dragons that Jiang Ci had stayed in the hatchery last night, and that Luci had followed him inside and stayed there.
This was true, so Jiang Ci nodded.
As soon as Jiang Ci nodded, Ivy immediately quirked his eyebrows, “Did he do anything to you?”
Focused on getting Noyce away from Jiang Ci, Ivy momentarily overlooked another person.
Jiang Ci was about to say, ‘Of course not’, but then he suddenly remembered that the system said Luci had kissed him on the cheek.
Thinking that it’s better to do more than less, Jiang Ci paused for a moment and said decisively, “No.”
“Yes.” Luci’s tone was faint, and his voice almost overlapped with Jiang Ci’s. Luci’s words made Jiang Ci say, ‘No.’
The word Luci said made Jiang Ci’s eyelids twitch, and Ivy immediately stared at him closely, “God?”
Jiang Ci took a deep breath, then looked for something common and said, “That’s kind of true… Yesterday, after I fell asleep, Luci covered me with his right wing.”
Ivy looked a little more natural after hearing that.
Just like that, he could barely accept it.
Luci didn’t say anything, but he was quietly looking at Jiang Ci at that moment, precisely at the spot where he had kissed him gently yesterday. Once something was out of its bounds once, it could no longer be controlled by the original order.
But if he were to go back to yesterday’s situation, Luci would do it again anyway.
Jiang Ci was relieved to have succeeded in avoiding a dispute.
Not seeing its owner in the meeting room, Jiang Ci could not help but ask, “Why isn’t Noyce here?”
Ivy casually replied, “I think he went to some valley.”
Jiang Ci was puzzled, but at that moment, a huge Black Dragon came from afar to the balcony of the living room, flapping its wings and staying at a high position, its scarlet eyes staring at Jiang Ci. Then Jiang Ci heard the Black Dragon say in Dragon language, “Get on my back.”
“Where are you taking me?” Jiang Ci asked, but the Black Dragon only lit up its red eyes.
The Black Dragon made a low sound from its throat to urge Jiang Ci to hurry. Jiang Ci could sense that the Black Dragon seemed to be behaving a bit differently today, and because he noticed this, he decided to do as he was told.
So, Jiang Ci went up to the Black Dragon’s back.
Jiang Ci didn’t have time to say anything to the other two, but the Black Dragon immediately fluttered its wings and flew to a certain location at great speed after he got on the Dragon’s back.
“What’s the hurry?”
Jiang Ci finished his question and heard the Black Dragon respond in a low muffled voice; its flight speed didn’t decrease at all, and it looked like it was really in a hurry. Without knowing Noyce’s destination, no one could keep up with the Dragon’s highest flight speed.
When the Black Dragon landed on the ground, Jiang Ci realized that Noyce had brought him to a valley. It was probably the one Ivy had just mentioned.
Jiang Ci saw a gorgeous sea of flowers, and many small animals inhabiting it, and Jiang Ci could hear their chirping and other sounds as soon as he arrived. Even when a huge Black Dragon came, these small animals didn’t seem to be afraid at all, and seemed to be familiar with each other, and came over one after another.
This was the Black Dragon’s favorite resting place. Today, all the flowers were open, and there were very rare colored clouds in the sky, so he wanted to bring Jiang Ci here.
Jiang Ci looked around the peaceful and beautiful scenery and looked up at the Dragon, “Is this your… secret base?”
The Black Dragon tilted its head; it hadn’t brought anyone else here before, so it was considered a secret base.
Jiang Ci was pushed to a certain spot in the sea of flowers by the Black Dragon with its head, and then was bumped and laid on the ground in the same way. At the same time, the Black Dragon lay down outside the sea of flowers, its scarlet eyes staring in the direction of the young man in a kind of guarding posture.
Was it to let him rest and sleep here together?
Jiang Ci thought to himself, if this was the Black Dragon’s secret place, then the fact that he was even willing to bring him here really kind of confirms the system’s claim… Jiang Ci was not willing to easily let go of his own convictions, so he looked over his shoulder and asked, “Why did you bring me here?”
At the question, the Black Dragon rested its head on the young man’s hand, which showed a rather obedient attitude.
[Like.] This was the second time Noyce has done this to Jiang Ci.
This time it was in low Dragon language, and the second time Noyce said this to Jiang Ci. It was because it liked Jiang Ci that the Black Dragon wanted to share everything it considered good with the other.
