Nan HuaiLin was woken up by the alarm clock at 7am.
As soon as he opened his eyes, he saw Fei Cheng’s handsome face close at hand. Looking back, everything that happened last night was as unreal as a dream. After laying the eggs, his life took off like a rocket, progressing at a rapid pace, turning his world upside down.
Yesterday, he was an ordinary human.
Today, he was the father of five dragon eggs.
Yesterday, Fei Cheng was the person he wanted to like but couldn’t.
Today, Fei Cheng was his boyfriend.
The worst part was that his boyfriend wasn’t human, but a big white dragon! The most amazing thing was that he accepted all this with such calmness and composure!
He felt more brave and fearless than the heroine of an idol drama, and he respected himself as a tough guy.
“Look again and I’ll eat you up.” Fei Cheng hooked his lips and said in a muffled voice.
“Morning.” Nan HuaiLin greeted him with a smile.
“Good morning.” Fei Cheng said, “What time is it?”
“Seven.” Nan HuaiLin wanted to get up, but Fei Cheng wrapped him in his arms and legs, “Lie down a little longer.”
“No,” Nan HuaiLin said, “I have to start work at 8:30.”
Fei Cheng said, “Lie down for five more minutes.”
Nan HuaiLin gave in easily, “Okay.”
Fei Cheng hugged him a little tighter, “I have to fly to the U.S. on the first day of our relationship, I’m so sad.”
Nan HuaiLin said, “I remember your brother said he was going to Atlantic City yesterday, right?”
“Mn,” Fei Cheng explained, “In the Atlantic Ocean, 150 nautical miles away from Atlantic City, there’s an underwater city. Once the gathering place of our dragon race, but with the dragon race on the verge of extinction, the underwater city was also gradually abandoned. My brother’s probably going to take me to the undersea city to hatch the eggs.”
It sounded like a beautiful place, he wanted to see it.
“Then when you leave… Wouldn’t it take at least six months to return?” Nan HuaiLin looked up at him.
“Yes,” Fei Cheng said with a sobbing face, “but what can I do? I have to hatch the eggs, and I can’t ask my brother to do it for me.”
Nan HuaiLin pressed his face to his heart, “I’ll miss you.”
Fei Cheng stroked his soft hair and sighed, “I wish I could take you away in my pocket.”
Nan HuaiLin listened to his strong heartbeat, suddenly feeling a bit melancholic, “When you come back with five baby dragons, I will really be a father, but I don’t know how to raise dragons.”
“It’s okay, I don’t know how to raise them either,” Fei Cheng said, “Let my brother do it, he has experience.”
Nan HuaiLin cried and laughed, “Yesterday you were so happy to know you were a father, and today you want to be the boss?”
“I’m teasing you,” Fei Cheng said with a smile, “You’ll raise me and I’ll raise the dragons, it’s perfect.”
“That’s more like it.” Nan HuaiLin said, “Five minutes are up, I have to get up and wash.”
Fei Cheng fondly let go of him and got up with him.
The two went to the living room to see the dragon eggs first.
“It’s amazing. They’ve been in my belly for six months and I didn’t even notice.” Nan HuaiLin said to the dragon eggs in the bowl as he lay on the table, “And I was running and swimming and they were fine, they were really strong. By the way,” Nan HuaiLin suddenly remembered something, “I don’t even know which one of them came out first, how can I tell which one of them is the oldest and which one is the youngest?”
“Up to you,” Fei Cheng said, “whoever you say is the boss is the boss.”
“That’s okay?” Nan HuaiLin laughed, “Isn’t that too arbitrary?”
“In any case, it’s just a matter of minutes,” Fei Cheng said, “It doesn’t make any difference who’s older and who’s younger.”
“Okay.” Nan HuaiLin remembered something else, “Shouldn’t we give them names?”
“It’s not too late to wait until they hatch,” Fei Cheng said, “How about three with your last name and two with mine?”
Nan HuaiLin smiled and said, “I think that’s fine.”
After staring at the dragon eggs for a while, the two of them went to wash up together.
Standing in front of the sink and brushing their teeth, they were just looking at each other’s faces in the mirror, but the corners of their mouths couldn’t help but curl up and pink bubbles kept popping out around them.
After brushing his teeth and rinsing his mouth, Fei Cheng couldn’t wait to press the person against the wall and kiss him, kissing him while going up and down.
“Don’t…” Nan HuaiLin grabbed his arm, “Stop it, please.”
“Good boy, I’m just touching, nothing else,” Fei Cheng smiled badly, “even if you want me to do it now I can’t do it. If we really do it, you won’t have a shoot today, and I won’t have to go to America.”
Nan HuaiLin blushed from his few words, dropping his eyes and not speaking.
“Baby, let me tell you something.” Fei Cheng said, “Don’t be angry when you hear it.”
Nan HuaiLin looked up at him, “What is it?”
Fei Cheng couldn’t help but smile and said, “Do you remember the cup of yogurt I gave you at Hengdian?”
“Yes,” Nan HuaiLin said, “What’s wrong?”
Fei Cheng smiled badly, “Just… I added one thing to it.”
Nan HuaiLin had an ominous feeling, “What did you add?”
Fei Cheng whispered in his ear, “Dragon… essence.”
Nan HuaiLin reacted for a while before he understood what he was talking about, and was immediately shocked, looking at Fei Cheng dumbfounded, “You… You…” 1
“You were the one who said your body was weak and needed a tonic, so I fed you the most useful tonic thing I have.” Fei Cheng paused and added, “I’ll confess, I actually just gave you some of my saliva…”
“You… stop!” Nan HuaiLin hurriedly interrupted him, “I don’t want to know, I don’t want to know anything!”
“What? You don’t like me?” Fei Cheng smiled mischievously, “I don’t mind yours, you can feed me some of your saliva.”
Nan HuaiLin hurriedly reached out to cover his mouth and said in a very complicated mood, “Stop it, I really have to go out.”
As if to agree with Nan HuaiLin, the cell phone in the bedroom rang at the right time.
Fei Cheng let him go and Nan HuaiLin ran out to answer the phone, “Okay, I’ll be down in five minutes, bye.”
After hanging up the phone, Nan HuaiLin said, “Sister Zhu is waiting for me downstairs, I have to go now.”
Fei Cheng gave a muffled ‘hmm’, “I’ll see you off.”
When he passed the eggs, Nan HuaiLin touched them one by one and said, “I’ll see you in six months.”
Fei Cheng followed him out the door, the two of them holding hands, especially reluctant to leave. Just after pressing the down button and the elevator arrived, Fei Cheng wanted to follow, but Nan HuaiLin pushed him out.
At the moment of parting, their heart had a thousand words but could say none, they could understand with just a look.
Staring at each other for a moment, Nan HuaiLin smiled and waved at him, “I’ll wait for you to come back.”
Fei Cheng smiled and nodded his head.
Nan HuaiLin let go of the button and the elevator door slowly closed.
Fei Cheng sighed and turned to leave, but the elevator door suddenly opened again. Nan HuaiLin rushed out of the elevator and threw herself into Fei Cheng’s arms, hugging him tightly and saying, with a little sniffle, “I’m going to miss you so much.”
Fei Cheng’s heart melted as he wrapped his arms around his little human boyfriend and said with a smile, “When I come back, you must like me as much as you do now.”
Nan HuaiLin’s voice was soft but determined, “I will like you even more than now.”
