Chu Feng silently walked to the kitchen, stopped halfway and opened his terminal.
In the file storage, he opened the files “How to make time for an Alpha during an Omegas heat”, and “How to make your Omega less clingy during heat”, read them again with a blank expression, and pressed the delete key.
The microwave dinged, and the food was ready. He hurried up, put on his oven mitts, and brought out two boxes of instant meals. He took a beautiful plate from the dish rack and carefully poured one of the boxes of instant rice into it.
Using chopsticks, he gathered up the loose rice so that it formed a cone, then picked up the box with his chopsticks and spread it on top in a single layer. Finally, two broccoli flowers were placed on the edge of the plate.
“Zhou Zhou, forget about the bear, come and eat the rice.”
Chu Feng carried the plate and the instant meal into the bedroom, urging Luo ZhouZhou, who was still directing the bear to climb the mountain. Luo ZhouZhou knitted his brows tightly and responded without turning back, “I’ll eat later, but first I’ll climb the mountain.” Then he asked, “How come it’s ready so quickly?”
Chu Feng put the plate on the table beside him and said, “I bought the instant food for convenience to save time, so I don’t have to make it fresh.”
“Well, it’s convenient, but the time is a little short.” Luo ZhouZhou’s voice was still full of regret.
Chu Feng stood beside him and asked, “Is it the same mountain as before?”
“No, it’s another one.”
“That’s one step closer to the end, which is nice.”
Luo ZhouZhou stopped, looked up at him, and said quietly, “I just fell down from the mountain, so I retreated to the previous level. This is the mountain from the previous level.”
“…That’s not bad. Once you’ve climbed it, you’ll be much more familiar with it.” Chu Feng leaned down, his head right next to Luo ZhouZhou’s cheek, and looked at the screen with him.
“Yes, a little to the left, now jump…” Chu Feng’s voice today was the same as usual, deep and beautiful, and the tone of his voice had not changed. But it seems to be different from the usual, with an indefinable meaning.
Luo ZhouZhou couldn’t describe it, but suddenly remembered those whimpers and gasps he had made last night when Chu Feng breathed into his ear. His heart pounded and his breathing became unsteady.
When Luo ZhouZhou suddenly stopped moving, Chu Feng thought he was stuck, so he wrapped his arms around him from behind and maneuvered the bear himself. His lips were pressed against Luo ZhouZhou’s ear, and his hot breath puffed on his neck.
“Look now, wasn’t it easy to jump over?” When he finished, he looked down at the person in his arms with a slight start.
Luo ZhouZhou was looking at him with that passionate gaze, his lips parting invitingly.
Chu Feng slowly tightened his arms around him and asked in a low voice, “Why are you looking at me like that?”
Then, he leaned his head down and tried to take his sweet lips in his mouth.
Luo ZhouZhou was about to close his eyes when the game on the display next to him came with an animated sound of a little bear, “Come on, I’m almost at the top of the mountain.”
It was like an incantation that undid the strange spell, and his eyes suddenly became bright with emotion. He put a hand over Chu Feng’s mouth, pushed it away, and said, “Chu Feng, you eat first, I’ll break through this level.”
Chu Feng watched as Luo ZhouZhou turned around, stared intently at the screen, slowly raised his hand to his forehead, and collapsed on the bed. It took a while before he said, “Go eat, I’ll help you.”
Luo ZhouZhou hesitantly stopped his hand, “Okay, I’ll eat quickly, and then I’ll come and change with you right after.”
In order to make him eat in peace, Chu Feng put all his effort into controlling the bear. Finally, he climbed to the top of the tree and jumped over the stone wall in front of him without a hitch.
“Wow, Chu Feng, you’re great.” Luo ZhouZhou sat down at the small round table and clapped vigorously, with a mouthful of rice in his mouth.
Chu Feng was also relieved and said, “That’s great.”
“You’re hungry too, aren’t you? Come and eat.” Luo ZhouZhou got up quickly and dragged the other side of the small couch next to him.
“Coming, coming.” Chu Feng sat down and opened the lid of the instant food container.
Luo ZhouZhou looked at his plate, then at his simple meal box, and asked, “Why don’t you use a plate for your meal? It looks so nice on a plate.”
Chu Feng said, “I just want you to eat more with a plate. I don’t mind, I used to make lunch boxes when I was training.” Chu Feng took a few more bites of rice, saw Luo ZhouZhou biting his spoon and looked at him, and asked, “Why don’t you eat? Is the food not to your liking? Do you want me to give you a new box?”
Luo ZhouZhou shook his head and said, “No, I just think that every time you talk about the old training, you smile very happily.”
“It was a carefree time, so it makes me happy to think about it.” Chu Feng pinched Luo ZhouZhou’s nose with his free hand and said, “But no time is as happy as now.”
Luo ZhouZhou smiled, and his eyes showed obvious joy.
Chu Feng reached out and picked the rice from the corner of his mouth and said, “The happiest thing that ever happened to me was meeting you.” 1
Luo ZhouZhou quickly put down his spoon and was about to jump on him, shouting, “Me too!”
“Okay, okay, okay. You’re still shouting even though you’ve lost your voice.” Chu Feng propped him up with one hand, tapped his plate with chopsticks and said, “Eat first.”
Luo ZhouZhou scooped up a spoon full of rice and fed it into his mouth. After swallowing it, he asked, “When you and Wang Jun used to play together, were you happy?”
Chu Feng recalled and said, “Happy. We grew up together, and we’ve been playing together for as long as I can remember.” At this point, he put down his chopsticks and asked Luo ZhouZhou, “I’ve had too many things to do for a while, and I haven’t been to see Auntie Liu for a long time, so I’m going to go to Wang Jun’s house when your heat is over.”
Luo ZhouZhou swallowed the food in his mouth and said, “Go. Wang Su likes you, and I’m going to guard you.”
Chu Feng curled his fingers and knocked him on the head, losing his smile, “Good, then you will go and keep watch over me.”
Seeing that Luo ZhouZhou began to wander off, he urged, “Eat quickly, and hurry up.”
“Why do I need to hurry?” Luo ZhouZhou asked.
“Your next fever should be coming soon.”
“Ah… right, it seems like this heat will last for many times.” Luo ZhouZhou said in a daze.
Chu Feng looked at him and asked, “Then do you want to inject an inhibitor? It’s better to inject inhibitors next time.”
“I don’t need inhibitors, I have you, don’t I?” Luo ZhouZhou raised his voice as he refused. He was wary, “There can’t be that many waves of heat, can it?”
Chu Feng didn’t reply, but just looked at him and laughed, ridicule evident in his eyes.
Luo ZhouZhou knew he was being teased and laughed along with him. But after laughing a few times, he realized that Chu Feng was laughing more and more happily, his shoulders shook, and he got annoyed and jumped on him.
Chu Feng put down his chopsticks and caught him, knocked him lightly on the head and said, “Can’t you focus on eating? You just pounce whenever you like to.”
“Not focusing.” Luo ZhouZhou jumped on his shoulder, the reassuring scent filling his nose, and the anger in his heart was gone, “Anyway, I can’t concentrate when you are in front of me.”
Chu Feng said, “Now you’ve learned how to sweet-talk me, and you can’t concentrate in front of me. Then what about playing with that bear?”
Luo ZhouZhou stopped talking, buried his head into Chu Feng’s neck and pretended not to hear, and gently rubbed his lips against him.
“You haven’t even wiped your mouth after eating and you’re rubbing against my neck?” Chu Feng said.
Luo ZhouZhou licked the warm skin in front of him and said, “I’ll lick it clean for you.”
Chu Feng seemed to draw in a little breath and helplessly said, “Stop licking and let me clean up the whole place, or what, will you do it later?”
Bringing the man in his arms back to a sitting position, Chu Feng stacked the empty plates on the small round table and carried them out.
“You should hurry up and get some rest,” He said.
Luo ZhouZhou nodded and replied, “I’ll rest right away.”
“Rest is rest. Close your eyes and lie down on the bed.” Chu Feng warned, “No more rolling honey jars.”
“It’s a barrel,” Luo ZhouZhou corrected.
“You are not allowed to roll the honey barrel again.”
“Oh.” Luo ZhouZhou’s thoughts were revealed and he looked a little upset.
Chu Feng cleaned up everything in the kitchen and went back to the bedroom. When he pushed open the door, he saw Luo ZhouZhou lying on his side on the bed with his back to the door, slightly curled up and not moving.
He quirked his lips, walked over to the edge of the bed, sat down, and said, “When the weather is nice, I’ll take you to the back of the mountain, prepare some barrels for you, and you can roll them from the foot of the mountain to the top as much as you want.”
Luo ZhouZhou didn’t answer, and didn’t move, still lying with his back toward him.
“Are you asleep?” Chu Feng leaned halfway on the bed and peered into his face.
Luo ZhouZhou shook his head.
“Are you angry?” Chu Feng said with a wry smile.
Luo ZhouZhou slowly turned his body around. In the soft light, his face was an unnatural shade of red, and his eyes were so watery that the rest of Chu Feng’s words were stuck in his throat.
“Chu Feng, my heat has started again.” He whispered, “I’m not angry, I’m a good boy. I’m waiting for you.”
Luo ZhouZhou sat up, reached down to peel off Chu Feng’s T-shirt, and said, “Come on, let’s do it again.”
Four days passed, this heat came to an end, and Luo ZhouZhou finally maneuvered the bear to roll the barrel to the top of the mountain. During each wave of his heat, Chu Feng was washing the sheets, cooking, and doing laundry, while Luo ZhouZhou raced against time to roll the honey barrel.
“Ahhhhhh! I did it! Chu Feng, I did it!”
Chu Feng was steaming egg custard in the kitchen when Luo ZhouZhou burst out of the bedroom, naked. He excitedly rushed to Chu Feng, jumped up and hung himself around his neck, shouting incoherently, “Barrel, the barrel, I pushed it up.”
Chu Feng held him up with one hand, smacked him on the buttocks with the other, and said, “Go put your clothes on.”
“Oh.” Luo ZhouZhou quickly jumped to the floor again and hurried to the bedroom. He quickly put on his pajamas and trotted into the kitchen, telling Chu Feng all about it with great excitement.
After listening to his detailed story about the last level, Chu Feng asked, “Do you want to continue playing after that?”
Luo ZhouZhou shook his head and said, “I’m not playing anymore.”
“Do you want to play other games in the future?” Chu Feng asked.
“No more games, it’s too tiring to play games and too hard.” Luo ZhouZhou said with a frown on his face.
Chu Feng asked curiously, “If it’s so tiring, why did you play through the game?”
Luo ZhouZhou opened his mouth, then took his arm and said, “Come and see.”
Chu Feng put down the wooden spoon in his hand and followed him to the bedroom. The three-dimensional display was still floating in the air, and the game screen was still there. But instead of pushing the barrel, the bear was sitting at a dining table, eating honey from a plate.
“What’s going on? Come to see it enjoying the fruits of victory?” Chu Feng asked wonderingly.
“Don’t worry, you’ll see it in a minute.” Luo ZhouZhou said, somewhat mysteriously and excitedly.
Chu Feng leaned against the door and stared at the screen with him.
Luo ZhouZhou stared at it for a moment, then turned around and said, “It will be ready in a minute.”
And then he pursed his lips and smiled happily. Chu Feng’s curiosity was completely piqued and he joined Luo ZhouZhou in watching the bear eat honey.
After about three or four more minutes, Luo ZhouZhou suddenly jumped up, pointed to the top right of the picture, and said excitedly, “Come and see.”
Chu Feng saw a small red line sliding across the screen and leaned in for a closer look.
[All gamers who clear the game will receive our physical rewards. The prize is a honey bear.]
Chu Feng turned to Luo ZhouZhou and asked, “You’ve been working so hard these days just to get this honey bear?”
Luo ZhouZhou nodded his head heavily.
“But don’t you have Precious already?” Chu Feng asked.
Luo ZhouZhou replied, “I’ve got Precious, but you don’t. I just want to win a honey bear for you.”
Chu Feng paused and said, “Why don’t you just buy one for me? This must’ve been a pain for you.”
“But I just wanted to give this one to you,” Luo ZhouZhou said. He skipped twice in place with excitement and asked, “Do you know how to claim your prize?”
The line flashed again a second time, and Chu Feng looked carefully at the way to claim the prize that followed. As the credits came to an end, he saw a parenthesis at the end (Event validity: July 8 to November 8).
The deadline had already expired.
Chu Feng quietly turned off the display and said to Luo ZhouZhou, “I will send the screenshots of the game pass to the game company and they will send the prize to me.”
“How long will it take to receive it?” Luo ZhouZhou asked.
“About two or three days,” Chu Feng said. He touched the top of Luo ZhouZhou’s soft hair and said softly, “Zhou Zhou, thank you.”
“You’re welcome.” Luo ZhouZhou smiled, “From now on, your honey bear will be Precious’s companion.”
“Yes, and they will never be alone again.” Chu Feng also laughed. After they watched the bear eating honey again, Chu Feng said, “I’ll go see if the egg custard is ready. I’ll call you later.”
“Okay.” Luo ZhouZhou nodded.
Chu Feng walked out of the bedroom and into the kitchen, tapped his long-turned-off terminal, and dialed the number of a subordinate.
“General Chu.” The call was quickly connected, and a slightly nervous voice came from the other end.
Chu Feng lowered his voice and asked, “Second Lieutenant, go do something for me now.”
“Please, General Chu, tell me what to do.” The voice became agitated again.
“Have you ever played a game on your terminal?”
“It’s just a bear trying to roll a honey pot to the top of a mountain game. Ah no, not the jar, the barrel. Have you ever played it?”
After a few seconds of silence in the terminal, the subordinate replied, “Haven’t played it, but I’ve seen my nephew playing it.”
“Is it the same game? Where that bear’s fur sticks together and the graphics were badly done?” Chu Feng asked.
The subordinate returned cautiously, “It’s not very pleasing to the eye.”
“That should be the one, it’s that game. Contact that game company and ask them to send me one of the prizes from the last event at the address where I live.”
The subordinate was silent for another moment and asked with uncertainty, “You want me to contact them for the event prize?”
Chu Feng spoke in the terminal with a sullen face, “Second Lieutenant, when you were at the academy, you should have known to answer the officer’s questions neatly, instead of repeating each other’s words over and over.”
“Yes, sir!” The voice of his subordinates was loud and clear.
Only then did Chu Feng hang up the terminal with satisfaction.
