Gu Ang was frightened by his own thoughts. After the divorce he also wanted Ye Fei, but like a dragonfly over water, it passed. But now, he used all his patience to restrain from jumping on him.
The pheromone of brandy was more violent than rust and affected him harder than he thought.
He was forced to hold still, not from wariness, but from a lingering thirst.
Gu Ang kept murmuring in his heart that he couldn’t provoke him again, not even with a hug. But his legs felt like they were filled with lead, and he couldn’t move an inch. He raised his eyes to look at Ye Fei, the tips of their noses were about to touch, a thousand emotions were blocked in his chest, his mind blank.
He wanted to say something several times, but he was afraid that if he opened his mouth, there would be no way out.
Ye Fei touched his cheek with the tip of his finger, his body temperature was hot and his chestnut hair was moistened with sweat.
“You have a fever…” It was only when he spoke up that he realized he was no better than Gu Ang, and his voice was hoarse.
Gu Ang let out a muffled cry and braced his palms against the wall to keep from sliding down, “Can you help me to bed? I don’t have the strength.”
Ye Fei’s palm touched Gu Ang’s soft and comfortable cotton pajamas. He was hooked by the smell of white peach oolong and also almost lost his senses, and subconsciously said a lie, “My back is injured, so don’t hold me, I’ll hold you.”
Gu Ang’s pupils became unfocused, he let out a somewhat bewildered ‘ah’, his eyes reflecting with a question. The next second, he felt a strong hand holding his waist, his leg was hooked up and he was flipped over, then lifted up.
Gu Ang was very tall, and the sudden movement made him a little unbalanced, so he reflexively hooked his arms around Ye Fei’s neck. His head was resting on Ye Fei’s shoulder, and his lips and tongue were almost touching the other’s neck.
He didn’t know if it was because of his back injury, and although it was obviously only a few steps away, Ye Fei walked extra slow. The two people’s breathing gradually increased in the slow torture, in the silence of the small empty room they were noisier than the cicadas outside.
Gu Ang simply closed his eyes, enjoying the last few seconds of warmth.
Ye Fei’s strong arms, Ye Fei’s broad shoulders, Ye Fei’s charming scent of liquor, Ye Fei’s everything.
He was like a thief in a dark corner, quietly feeling treasured.
But time didn’t stand still, and this journey had an end. If this were a boundless wilderness with snow drifting, they could walk all the way to the white peak.
Unfortunately, they arrived at the bed.
Ye Fei bent down and placed Gu Ang carefully on the bed, but as he released his hand and was about to straighten up, he was caught by Gu Ang’s arm, the wound on his back was pulled, causing him sharp pain.
He fell heavily on top of Gu Ang as his body lost its balance, and was rewarded with a muffled grunt.
“Did I hurt you?” Gu Ang panicked and let go of his hands, dropping them to his sides. He didn’t see Ye Fei’s wound, but judging from his expression, it wasn’t as light as he made it out to be.
This man was always like this, always playing it cool and putting up with the pain.
Ye Fei took a deep breath, “It hurts a little, give me a moment.”
Actually, it didn’t hurt that much. He felt that he was too naughty, using this lame excuse just to cuddle with Gu Ang for a little longer.
“Okay.” Gu Ang indulged him as well as himself. His breath was stagnant and his hands clenched the sheet. Through the two thin pieces of clothing, he felt Ye Fei’s rapid heartbeat.
After a few seconds, there was a sudden nasal soreness, aggravation to the point of even a little bit of the illusion of wanting to cry. He had a smooth journey, remarkable merit, serious life, and kindness to others. There was no harm to the innocent, nor did he betray his faith.
He obviously did nothing wrong, so why couldn’t he embrace his lover?
Gu Ang tilted his head and felt a small patch of moistness on his pillow.
It was too hot tonight and his eyes had fogged up.
Ye Fei realized the pause was too long and finally got up and stood up straight, clearing his throat, “That medicine I bought for you, use it.”
He knew Gu Ang wasn’t feeling too well, but nothing could be done in name only.
“Okay, it’s on the bedside. Hand it to me.” Gu Ang kept his head sideways, and his voice came out muffled.
After a short while, a cold glass bottle was shoved into his hand.
“Here’s the water.” Ye Fei put the glass on the bedside, and it hit the table with a clank.
“Okay, thanks.” Gu Ang rubbed his head twice on the pillowcase before sitting up and unscrewing the pill bottle.
Three pills… after taking them, every thought will be gone.
The dormitory fell back into silence and darkness, hiding two hearts each with their own thoughts. The medicine worked and the heat quickly receded a lot, Gu Ang’s head became clear.
The conversation with Qin LeHe inexplicably flashed through his mind. His limbs were weak, his belly was aching, his neck was sensitive, and his libido was aroused. These symptoms of his… were they an Omega’s estrus reaction?
This thought ignited a fire, and the more he thought about it, the more panicked he became. He thought, I can’t blame the crawfish and poisonous mosquitoes.
He may, himself, be really sick.
When Gu Ang woke up in the morning, Ye Fei had already left without waking him. He left a note on the bed and a cup of hot water with residual heat, [Seeing that you’re not feeling well, sleep a little longer. I’ll take a leave of absence for you.]
Gu Ang rubbed his sore eyes and felt his palm still boiling hot.
The high body temperature during the susceptible period was a frequent occurrence, but it was the first time that his fever was so severe.
He messaged Ye Fei, [Thanks, I’m planning on going to the hospital].
Ye Fei replied quickly, [Wait for me, I will accompany you]
Gu Ang, [No, I can handle it myself]
At the least he was a general, what was the point of having to go to the hospital with someone else? Gu Ang woke up with a groggy head, washed up, put on a shirt and left for the nearest university hospital.
Standing at the registration desk, he was a bit torn.
Which department should I register for with such symptoms?
“Student, where do you feel unwell?” The nurse smiled brightly at him.
Gu Ang leaned against the table at the consultation desk and repeated his symptoms, somewhat bashfully.
The nurse nodded, “First, go take a blood test, and then do a full body examination. With these descriptions alone, it’s not convenient to make a judgment.”
“Okay.” Gu Ang paid the money, followed the guidelines to complete the examination, sitting in the corridor waiting for the test results.
He should have come for a checkup when he was reborn, but the first few days he was fine and everything was normal, so he left the matter behind. But lately, he’s been so strange that it was hard to ignore.
He squeezed the palm of his hand, the effect of the suppression medicine only lasted for twelve hours, and now that dryness seemed to have returned to his body. It was hard to rely on that stuff alone, it seemed to not last through this period of abnormality.
Gu Ang leaned his back against the chair and loosened the buttons on his collar.
“Gu Ang, come in.” The doctor poked his head out of the doorway.
Gu Ang got up and pushed the door in. The empty office smelled faintly of sterile water. He inhaled his nose and asked, “Doctor, what’s wrong with me?”
The doctor’s name was Zhang, he was the hospital’s best doctor. He frowned as he crumpled the test results in his hand, pushed up his glasses, looking a little confused, “You are eighteen years old?”
“To be exact, one month short.”
Dr. Zhang hmmed, “When did you differentiate?”
Gu Ang recalled that in his last life he had differentiated a little early, “High school, so… sixteen?”
His heart suddenly tensed up when he asked this question. Was it really related to his second gender?
Doctor Zhang got up to pour him a glass of water, kindly smiling, “Your situation is a little special. Don’t be nervous, I need to first understand your current situation. Recently, did anything special happen to you?”
Gu Ang wrinkled his eyebrows, Time travel, but would he believe it? He didn’t know how to explain, “It seems that I had an accident earlier, but I don’t remember.”
“Accident? Did you get hurt at that time?”
Gu Ang rubbed his brow, “No injury. I even delayed the checkup until now, because everything seemed normal.”
Doctor Zhang guided him along, “In this accident, have you ever been in an environment with strong magnetic fields or touched objects with strong radiation?”
Gu Ang shook his head, “I don’t remember, is it important?”
“Because there’s fairly little information now, it’s just my personal guess.” Doctor Zhang pushed his glasses up again, “You were originally in very good physical condition, an Alpha with very strong mental strength and pheromone, but probably because of the magnetic field or the accident you mentioned, your body hormones are in a bit of a disarray.”
Gu Ang’s heart sank, squeezing the hand of the water cup tighter and tighter, “So, how much of a disarray?”
Doctor Zhang weighed his words, “The hormones of the second gender in your body are disrupted, and there’s even signs of your Alpha gender being masked.”
“How can it be treated?” Gu Ang squeezed out his voice with a manic depression. He was an interstellar fierce Alpha. How could his Alpha gender characteristics be covered up? It was ridiculous.
“Don’t be anxious. This is also the first first time I’ve come across such a situation, so I can’t lay down a treatment plan yet.”
Gu Ang pursed his lips, and the string in his heart was taut to the extreme, “Don’t beat around the bush, just tell me directly, what’s written on the laboratory test results?”
Doctor Zhang pinched the lab papers in his fingers and carefully read it again from start to finish.
Making sure that all the data and indicators are correct and there was no error in judgment.
“If there are no testing errors…” The doctor looked up, “You re-differentiated into an Omega.”
Even though the words fell into his ears word-by-word, it was a little hard to comprehend.
Gu Ang felt a roar in his ears, and after a few seconds of reprieve, he seemed to finally grasp the meaning of the words. His whole face instantly lost its color, as if the strong world he had built for more than twenty years had collapsed.
His vision was blurred, his line of sight becoming fuzzy.
With a crack, the glass in his hand was crushed to pieces, and the glass shards scattered all over the floor.
Into an Omega.
Wowww!!! I guess Ye Fei in future will get Gu Ang preggers😆😆😆
Break out the smelling salts.
Hope there’s some back at the dorm too.
