There was a warm mist in the bathroom.
“……” Gu YuMian had just taken a bath and stepped barefoot on the bathroom tiles. He retreated so fast that his head almost hit the tiles.
Shuo Han seemed to have thought about everything in advance. His broad palm was protecting Gu YuMian’s head. He frowned when he stumbled, and then easily picked up Gu YuMian.
Just like how Gu YuMian used to hold the little snow leopard.
But it was not the same. When Shuo Han held Gu YuMian, he had an aggressive and exclusive desire that was hard to hide. Gu YuMian was reflected in the whole iris, and nothing else. And his temperature was very high, like a high fever, but his expression was very careless.
Gu YuMian gasped twice, “Let me down.”
Shuo Han, “No.”
Such a close distance was enough for Shuo Han to see his human carefully.
This angle of view was totally different from what he saw as a cub.
All creatures were the same in the eyes of Shuo Han, and the only two kinds of differentiation was fools and not so stupid idiots. Now Gu YuMian had become the only exception.
Round and white toes curled up slightly, showing tension and anger. Because of the long hot bath, his knee was covered in a light color, up along the beautiful leg line, into the bottom of the bathrobe.
Gu YuMian’s figure was special, thin, clear and meaningful when he was young, with some juvenile childishness, and now the lines had become completely slender. The narrow and tight waist side was loosened by the tie, then a small expanse of his chest and clavicle were exposed from the neckline, and the pale lips were tightened with anger…
Every place was just right for him to kiss.
Shuo Han’s eyes were a little darker, and he had completely forgotten what he thought when he stood outside the bathroom for half an hour.
His heart was thumping.
There seemed to be a nameless fire in his throat. It was getting hotter and hotter.
Shuo Han showed a bewitched look. His thumb touched the corner of Gu YuMian’s lips. He gently pressed his lower lip and tilted his head——
In the last second, Gu YuMian’s eyes stopped him.
Gu YuMian was angry.
The unprecedented anger burned in his eyes.
The long experience of getting along with each other told Shuo Han that the consequences would be unimaginably serious if they kissed each other now.
Three seconds later, as expected.
Gu YuMian said, “…Enough.” He said wearily, “I think you should be able to live on your own, we—— Let’s separate for a while. After leaving here tomorrow, you don’t have to go back with me.”
Shuo Han should be much older than him. It was ridiculous that he needed to raise Shuo Han. He used to like the snow leopard and Shuo Han, but he was now confused.
To the little snow leopard, it was an elder’s love for a child. It was no different from the love he felt for YuanYuan, QiuQiu and Er’er. There was a huge gap between family and love.
Shuo Han’s actions did not give Gu YuMian any time to buffer and digest. Of course, Gu YuMian was upset and furious.
It was unreasonable. It was against the rules.
In addition, Shuo Han knew everything and cheated him for a long time. Had he considered his mood?
Shuo Han didn’t speak.
There was only the sound of water dripping in the room.
The force exerted on Gu YuMian was increased a little and then released.
Gu YuMian didn’t want to see him anymore. He lowered his head and grabbed a towel.
He bypassed Shuo Han and walked to the door step by step. He was very tired and just wanted to sleep. To his surprise, Shuo Han didn’t say anything to contradict him as usual, or make a strong claim again — which made Gu YuMian somewhat relieved.
Gu YuMian’s hand closed on the door handle.
In fact, he felt very sad.
Thank you, TuanTuan, very much. Just thinking of separating in this manner, his heart felt like it was soaking in ice water. It was hard to breathe, and he had to rely on a cavity of anger to be able to say those kind of words, and maybe he would regret it later.
On Gu YuMian’s shoulder, suddenly there was a heavy weight.
The soft, velvety touch of TuanTuan surrounded his neck and cheeks.
Gu YuMian, “……”
The little snow leopard lay on the side of Gu YuMian’s neck with his claws tightly holding Gu YuMian’s lapel. He glanced at Gu YuMian with a guilty look, and rubbed his head against Gu YuMian’s ear. Two seconds later, he rubbed again.
Gu YuMian was expressionless.
The little snow leopard hesitated, stretched out two claws and raised them to Gu YuMian.
The soft and tender paw pad felt good. If Gu YuMian didn’t get angry, he could knead and kiss at will.
“… Change back.” Gu YuMian said.
The face of the little snow leopard didn’t understand what he was talking about at all. The soft claws pressed on Gu YuMian’s lips, cheeks and ears. It was the paw pad attack that Gu YuMian couldn’t resist at ordinary times.
In general, it would only take two or three seconds before he held his paw pad and rubbed his face.
Gu YuMian, “Change, go back, go.”
Wasn’t this enough?
The snow leopard lingered in Gu YuMian’s arms, hesitated for a long time, turned around to show his white belly, and condescended to allow Gu YuMian to rub his belly.
Usually it was easy not to rub. The opportunity was very precious. If he didn’t hold it, he wouldn’t have it.
Gu YuMian grabbed the snow leopard’s nape and picked him up.
The little snow leopard’s ears were erect, and he looked at Gu YuMian’s face nervously and carefully. His long tail swayed from side to side, and he made an awkward gesture around Gu YuMian’s wrist.
It was quiet.
Gu YuMian’s mouth was tight.
The little snow leopard’s ears went down a little bit.
The long tail drooped listlessly, and the whole cub wilted.
After a while,
Gu YuMian couldn’t hold back at last. He drew at the corner of his mouth. His hand covered his face.
His shoulders were slightly raised.
“??” The little snow leopard immediately panicked and thought Gu YuMian was crying. He grabbed his collar anxiously and looked at him.
Only to find out that Gu YuMian was smiling and laughing.
Snow Leopard, “…”
After a while, Gu YuMian tried to hold the smile and breathe steadily.
Reaching out, unable to withstand the temptation, he gently pressed the soft belly of the snow leopard.
That night, Gu YuMian had a dream. Shuo Han really appeared in his dream. He was still lazy and unruly, but he had the ears and tail of a snow leopard.
He was surprised and asked Shuo Han asking what was wrong. Unexpectedly, Shuo Han said solemnly, “Meow, meow, meow, meow…” Then turned into a small snow leopard, lying in his arms, revealing his belly to ask Gu YuMian to rub.
In the dream, Gu YuMian didn’t resist the temptation and reached out to rub it.
All of a sudden, the snow-white belly became harder and harder.
It began to feel like abs.
There were eight of them. They were very hot. The more he rubbed it, the tighter they got.
Gu YuMian felt confused as he rubbed.
While Gu YuMian was dreaming, he was in bed.
Little Tangyuan, the little fox and the little husky were sleeping with their heads next to each other. They were still drooling in their dreams. But, His Majesty, who was afraid to make Gu YuMian angry and only dared to change back to human form when he was sleeping, endured very hard.
His abdomen was tight, breathing was depressed, and the forehead was full of sweat.
While Gu YuMian touched him, he said in a puzzled whisper, “Why isn’t it soft? Is TuanTuan ill? Or hungry and skinny?”
Shuo Han, “……”
He couldn’t sleep all night.
A week later, Capital Star downtown, Starry Sky Live platform headquarters.
Although he had been in Capital Star and worked as an anchor for Starry Sky for a long time, Gu YuMian had come to Starry Sky headquarters for the first time — there had been no time before, and there was no need to come.
But this time he had to come by himself, because of the championship of the rookie competition and also because it involved the following arrangements.
In fact, Gu YuMian had a little reputation in Capital Star since the previous Academy of Sciences live broadcast, but it was the record breaking live broadcast on the night of the rookie final that pushed the enthusiasm for Gu YuMian to the commanding height of the whole circle.
… It can be guessed that for a long time, no one was able to shake the record except Gu YuMian.
Countless brand advertisers had turned their attention to this somewhat too young human anchor this evening. But unexpectedly, Gu YuMian didn’t receive any endorsements or advertisements, and didn’t even have a live broadcast for the next seven days.
Many media got the news that Gu YuMian was coming to the headquarters in advance, and had already been squatting here at Starry Sky.
——Twenty years old, human being, the owner of the top stream live broadcast with the shortest total live broadcast time, and Elbet restaurant. It was amazing to take out each identity alone, and it was a huge gimmick to put it together.
“Is this Mr. Gu? I’ve heard so much. May I interview you about your current mood?”
“Mr. Gu, seven days without live broadcasting, are you going to fade out of the live broadcasting industry next? Don’t you think it’s a pity?”
When Sugar Sugar came out to pick up Gu YuMian, she saw that he was surrounded by a group of curious reporters. He seemed very distressed.
He had no similar experience, but could only say, “I’m sorry, right. Yes, I want to focus on my family and some personal things first. I have to ask for leave from the live broadcast. I’m sorry for letting down my audience. Well… Later plans are also under consideration.”
Sugar Sugar, “……”
Ten minutes later.
“Why do you spend so much time with them? Just say there is no comment.” Sugar Sugar watched Gu YuMian with great interest for a while. She felt that seeing was better than hearing. The feeling of being near this human was different. While shaking hands with Gu YuMian she said, “To introduce myself formally, I’m Sugar Sugar, and my race is mini-rabbit.”
Gu YuMian reached out, “Sugar Sugar, hello. I’m Gu YuMian, human.”
Sugar Sugar looked at it for a long time, and finally recovered from the floating happiness, coughing, “Let’s get down to business then — with regard to the contract, we are going to upgrade you to S-class contract. All the conditions, including the proportion of shares, are very negotiable. But you are… Don’t you want to broadcast live?”
Recently Gu YuMian had revealed this meaning. Sugar Sugar was reluctant to accept it, but if Gu YuMian insisted on it, nothing else could be done.
“Well,” Gu YuMian said, pondering for a moment, “it’s hard to spare time in my family because of the complexity of the situation recently. As for the live broadcast…”
Something really happened at home.
The little snow leopard — or Shuo Han’s thing was one thing. Besides, the other children had some problems.
“I may have to find time to return… No, go to Ancient Earth. ” Gu YuMian said casually, “I’m applying for a license now, but I’m afraid it’s hard to apply.”
After all, the environment was different there. Gu YuMian was afraid that human beings would be limited in this respect. He had submitted his application for five working days, but it had not yet been approved.
Sugar Sugar listened and nodded sadly. His original intention of doing live broadcasts before was just to earn some money to support himself and the little snow leopard.
Now that was not the problem.
“Your current contract has been upgraded. The S-contract has almost no restrictions on the anchor, and the total time per week is two hours.”
Few anchors in Starry Sky had signed S-level contracts — except Gu YuMian, others were all half-footed in the entertainment circle. Advertising fees for endorsement alone could bring great benefits to Starry Sky, so there was no requirement for a live broadcast duration.
This also meant that Gu YuMian would not even need to broadcast live after upgrading to the S-level contract.
Gu YuMian said, “Well… If there’s anything we can’t let go of, it’s the audience.”
“The audience will be sad,” Sugar Sugar said, “but I think they will respect your decision.”
After all, Gu YuMian’s live broadcast had too few alternatives.
There was only one Gu YuMian in the world.
After watching the live broadcast of Gu YuMian, even many of the audience’s appetites had been raised. They were really not used to watching other live broadcasts, and they were not acclimatized.
“There will be a celebration dinner at the Rookie Awards tomorrow. Let’s meet the fans and say goodbye.” Sugar Sugar said.
Gu YuMian thought about it and nodded.
The two talked about something more. After signing the contract, Sugar Sugar took Gu YuMian to the door. When she came back, her optical computer received a communication, “Mn, it’s me… Ah?”
While listening to the phone, Sugar Sugar’s eyes were wide and opened a little wider. “Variety show? On ancient earth?”
A few minutes later, Sugar Sugar ran out in a hurry. She caught up with Gu YuMian, who had not yet boarded the suspension device. Gu YuMian turned around, “Hmm?”
“MianMian, do you have any interest in this?” Sugar Sugar clutched her waist and couldn’t breathe. “Take part in a variety show?”
At the same time, in the Upper Urban District, the old house of the Guo family.
The brown and white panda, Guo Shi’san, touched his round chin, and a group of pandas together discussed.
It was Guo Shi’san, the twins, 15th and Shi’liu Guo and 9th and 11th Guo. At present, they were the only ones left in the Upper Urban district. Other pandas were all over the whole star.
“What happened to Little 24? Why did his mental state became a cub, and he wiped out his whereabouts?”
Maybe it was because he didn’t want to be discovered by the agent before. Guo Er Shisi briefly recovered his intelligence and lucidity for a few moments. The first thing he did was to erase his traces on the Internet and everywhere, but it also made it difficult for the Guos’ to find him.
“Wait.” 11th Guo was a panda in a suit. He was also chubbyand he wore a small tie and a small pair of spectacles — he was the cleverest in this generation.
Everyone held their breath.
After a while, he slowly said, “It may overdraw the power of cause and effect to predict the position of our ancestors with the power, but if we predict the position of Little 24…”
The pandas had the ability to predict, and so did Guo Er Shisi, indicating that Guo Er Shisi was also out of the force of cause and effect!
If the ancestor was really next to Guo Er Shisi, could they know where he was if they knew Guo Er Shisi’s location?
The range of predictive power was 15 days minimum and 3 years maximum.
Several pandas looked at each other for a while, and suddenly they all jumped up!
“It makes sense. Why didn’t I think of it?”
“Eleven, you are a bear!”
It was quiet inside.
All eyes were focused on one place.
“Ancient Earth…” From the beginning of silence to the end, 9th Guo finally weakly inserted a sentence, “I just saw, ah, That, fifteen days later, Little 24 will be on Ancient Earth. “
When Gu YuMian came home, the little husky was sitting on the doorstep pitifully with a pen in his mouth. While shivering in the autumn afternoon sun, he was waiting for Gu YuMian to come home.
“Er’er,” Gu YuMian touched his little head, “if you don’t want to write, you don’t need to. We have a lot of food and drink in our family.”
After the little guy came back from Utopia, the energy of dismantling his family shifted, and from time to time he wanted to write something — but it should be in the bottleneck period, when he was not satisfied with the writing so he would bite it off, and then continue to write.
Gu YuMian picked up a few pieces of paper from time to time and was shocked by the expressiveness of those short lines of words.
Their little husky turned out to be a real genius.
“Awoo, awoo…” The little husky scratched his ears. He was embarrassed to say that he wanted to write a story about Gu YuMian, little snow leopard, little Tangyuan, then the little fox and himself, but he was not satisfied with it.
It had nothing to do with making money or not. He just wanted to do it. For the first time in his life, a child who was always hot for three minutes had a lasting passion for something.
“All right, where are YuanYuan and QiuQiu? TuanTuan… TuanTuan…”
When it came to snow leopard, Gu YuMian was a little speechless.
How to put it?
Since that night, the little snow leopard had never changed back
Maybe Gu YuMian’s angry ‘separation’ scared him.
The little snow leopard pretended that he couldn’t understand anything. Gu YuMian had tried to talk to him many times. It was not a way to go on like this, but they all ended up with nothing wrong.
But there was no way. Gu YuMian really had no idea about such a little snow leopard. He couldn’t force Shuo Han to change back.
In addition, the little snow leopard would buy all kinds of strange things at home.
For example, the vase Gu YuMian glanced at in the street.
For example, all kinds of rare potted plants Gu YuMian browsed through when he spent his time on STARNet.
For example, when Gu YuMian went out, there was a new shadow from a tall building
Gu YuMian, “……”
Before changing, he could not have guessed that Shuo Han was such a character.
But today he had to talk about it. After all, he was likely to go to Ancient Earth soon.
“Shuo Han?” Gu YuMian held up the husky by his ribs, and even took the paper and pen with him and carried him into the room. “QiuQiu? YuanYuan?”
