Lan Yu froze, stopped in his tracks.
Lu RanKong also heard the words, he knew that K and Yun Jie had known each other before, only to assume that Lan Yu’s memory loss would be different, but Yun Jie said he was a different person.
‘Lu RanKong’ continued, “You also noticed that I’m not your companion, but don’t worry, I have no hostile intent, just want to live. Otherwise just now, I would have escaped. I can tell you many secrets and return your companion’s body to you. I don’t know where his mental body has gone, but he has taken a stabilizer and will be back in no time.”
Lan Yu slowly turned to look at him.
‘Lu RanKong’ continued, “I can run away with your companion’s body now, and dispose of it before his spirit body returns.”
Lan Yu didn’t say anything, nor did he show any nervousness, only gazed at him with his dark eyes.
‘Lu RanKong’ suddenly flinched a little and said, “If I don’t do that, there’s only one condition, that you provide me with a safe identity.”
“A safe identity?” Lan Yu asked in a muffled voice.
‘Lu RanKong’ said, “Until you agree to this condition, you have no chance to go back to the house and get the inhibitor. If you give me a new identity, I will immediately go and get you the inhibitor to relieve your current pain.”
After that he walked up and reached for Lan Yu’s right hand.
“What the fuck are you doing?!” Lu RanKong roared inside Lan Yu’s head, causing his scalp to tingle slightly.
‘Lu RanKong’ took Lan Yu’s hand and removed the terminal from it, “We can talk about it, but before we do, I’ll put your terminal away for you.” He put Lan Yu’s terminal into his pocket, “Do you want me to help you?”
Lan Yu ignored him and stumbled to the entrance of the villa. The short walk had taken all his strength, and after the information lock opened, he tried to lift his hand to push open the door, but the solid wood door panel didn’t move.
Lu RanKong stepped forward and pushed the door open with his hand out from beside him. He watched Lan Yu head for the stairs but was in no hurry. He looked around and headed for the refrigerator in the dining room, asking, “Do you want some water? Your mouth must be dry, right?”
As Lan Yu stumbled forward, he tripped on the stairs, and fell.
“Xiao Yu!” Lu RanKong called out sharply.
Lan Yu tilted his head to look up at the short staircase that was now really long, as he said, “Lu RanKong, talk to me.”
Lu RanKong’s voice was as hoarse as sand, “Baby, what do you want to hear me say?”
Lan Yu said, “I want to hear you tell a story about a little boy… The little boy was afraid of being in heat, and when his father became seriously ill in the middle of the night, he had to… He had to go over the mountain to get a doctor, and on the way… The boy went into heat.”
“Okay, I’ll tell the story of a little boy.” Lu RanKong’s voice was gruff but gentle, “There was a little Omega boy who was most afraid of being in heat, so he had been seriously injecting inhibitors. But one day, his father became seriously ill in the middle of the night, he had to go over the mountains to get a doctor, and somehow, he went into heat on the way. He… He…”
Lu RanKong’s voice choked, as if he couldn’t go on.
Lan Yu’s sweat blurred his vision, and his whole body looked as if he had been fished out of the water. He stood up holding the wall, bowed his back, and climbed tremulously to the second floor. “Go on, what happened to him?”
“He had to go up a long flight of stairs if he wanted to go over the big mountain, and the little boy climbed upwards, wanting to get the inhibitor at the top of the mountain sooner…” Lu RanKong took a deep breath. His vision suddenly became low enough to know that Lan Yu was climbing on his hands and knees to the second floor.
Lan Yu climbed up to the corner between the first and second floors and just felt his hands and feet shaking, so he leaned against the wall to catch his breath. At that moment, he heard the Lontan person who was in Lu RanKong’s body had put down the water cup, which rattled on the table.
“K! K! Can you get up the stairs? Do you need my help?” He asked loudly.
Lan Yu heard his unhurried steps toward the stairs and bit his lower lip hard until he tasted blood before mobilizing all his remaining strength and climbing up to the second floor with a flourish.
Just near the large amphora vase, he slid helplessly to sit on the floor. He tried to raise his hand to touch the left ear of the vase, but he was so tired and exhausted that his hand seemed to be poured with iron water, too heavy to lift.
‘Lu RanKong’ walked to the bottom of the stairs, tilted his head to look up, and asked in a relaxed tone, “K, are you already upstairs?”
Lan Yu didn’t answer, only gritted his teeth and continued to lift his hands, soaking the floor beneath him with sweat.
“Xiao Yu, I’ll try to take over your body. If you feel abnormal, just relax and go with the flow, don’t try to resist.” Lu RanKong suddenly spoke.
“Huh, what?” Lan Yu had just asked these words in his heart when he suddenly felt a buzz in his brain, as if something was rising inside and recklessly rushing left and right, trying to take over his entire mind. He tensed his body and subconsciously fought against the force, trying to squeeze it out of his mind.
Lu RanKong sensed it and hurriedly said, “Xiao Yu, relax, don’t be nervous and don’t resist.”
“K, you can use the inhibitor if you promise to talk to me properly.” The Lontan person began to walk up the stairs, “Of course, you have to be tied up before using it, I believe you will not mind…”
“Baby don’t be nervous, relax. It’s Brother Bao not someone else, and Brother Bao won’t hurt you. You are too tired, take a rest first, rest, rest quietly…” Lu RanKong kept reassuring Lan Yu while concentrating on controlling his body.
Lan Yu listened to his soft voice and tried to relax himself, taking big deep breaths and suppressing his instinct to fight against that force.
“Yes, yes, that’s it, look I can move your fingers, can you see?” Lu RanKong heard the footsteps coming up the stairs, but the tone of his words remained the same, smooth and soft.
Lan Yu finally relaxed completely, and at the same time, he felt all the burning pain in his body dissipate, and his whole body felt like a thousand pounds of weight had been lifted off of it. His body was relaxed and his mind was instantly clear.
‘Lu RanKong’ slowly walked up to the second floor and saw K sitting on the floor against the wall, holding a large vase in his hand, his head hanging motionless. He walked over and leaned down to help the person on the floor, “K, you’ll catch a cold sitting here, let’s go inside.”
K still didn’t move, but suddenly looked up when his arm was held, his gaze wasn’t like the previous forced calmness mixed with panic. The color of his eyes was so deep that he couldn’t see the contents of them.
‘Lu RanKong’ froze, but he knew K had no strength now, so he didn’t raise his guard much, even when he saw him reach out to touch the vase’s ear, he just frowned. With a click, as the vase ear was pulled, the wall behind him suddenly slid open to reveal a space.
‘Lu RanKong’’s face changed and he was about to straighten up. But before he could make a move, he was grabbed by the throat and hit suddenly with a twisting body slam. He was caught off guard and took a few steps backwards, retreating into that space. Just as he stood up, he saw the corner of K’s mouth curling up in front of him, and the wall that had slid open closed instantly.
Although Lan Yu gave up the right to the body, he has been synchronized with Lu RanKong’s sight, and saw him shut the Lontan person into the dark room, so he loudly urged, “Quickly lock it! Lock it!”
Lu RanKong pulled both the left and right ears of the vase at the same time, and there was a soft click from the wall.
“It’s locked…” He released his hand, sweating but sounding fierce, “Let’s see how I take my time with this one. There’s another syringe in the suitcase, go get it first.”
He turned around and walked towards the guest bedroom, but just after a few steps he stopped, his body froze, then slowly bent down and covered his belly with a soft hum.
——His tone trailed off with a long sound, tinged with some unspeakable charming implications.
At the end of the corridor facing the huge mural, Lan Yu saw his own image in the reflection of the glass surface, frowning, panting sharply, and his face was rapidly turning red. He was stunned at first, and instantly realized that since Lu RanKong had gotten the control of his body, he was now experiencing his fever.
“Xiao Yu, I… Ah…” Lu RanKong hummed again in that tone, and water quickly built up in his eyes, rippling with light.
Lan Yu hurriedly said, “Quickly, go get the inhibitor, I have an inhibitor in my suitcase.”
Lu RanKong was undeterred and tried to go to the guest bedroom to get the HR5 injection, but before he could take two steps, his legs and stomach trembled and he hurriedly held onto the wall beside him.
“Forget about that Lontan person, he can’t get out of there anyway, go get the inhibitor first.” Lan Yu said anxiously.
“Ah… This heat is really…” Lu RanKong faltered and turned his head, “Mn… No no, I’d better go find the inhibitor.”
Lu RanKong held the wall towards the bedroom, took two steps and stopped again. Lan Yu saw his expression turn weird from the other end of the hanging glass.
“Hang in there. Even if it’s hard, get the inhibitor and you’ll be fine.” He hurriedly soothed him.
Lu RanKong didn’t say anything and continued to walk forward, only now both his legs were no longer clenched, but crossed and moved over like a crab. He stopped after two steps and mumbled, “Xiao Yu, I feel, I feel…”
“How do you feel?”
Lu RanKong stretched out his hand as if he wanted to touch him, but remembered that it was not his own body and abruptly withdrew it. He began to breathe deeply and in between breaths said, “Xiao Yu, you might… might have to change your pants.”
Lan Yu was silent for a few seconds and then said, “Bear with it for now. I’ll change when I get my body back. You go ahead and inject the inhibitor.”
Lu RanKong held the wall and continued to walk forward, taking a few steps and then stopping, holding his breath, his expression was one of extreme patience.
Lan Yu knew very well that the heat was one wave after another, the interval was quite long at the beginning, but later it became shorter and shorter, and each wave would bring more and more intense torment to the body.
Lu RanKong finally moved into the bedroom, and after seeing the large suitcase in the corner, he stretched out a trembling hand, as if seeing the straws of life to jump on, stumbling several steps in the middle.
“Take it easy, take it easy, take it easy.” Lan Yu hurriedly said, “The inhibitor is at the bottom.”
Lu RanKong opened the suitcase with shivering hands and turned to the compartment with impatience.
“Lift the bag of skin care products.” Lan Yu said.
Lu RanKong grabbed the bag of skin care products and reached for the inhibitor at the bottom.
The suppressant, also an injection, was in a vacuum plastic bag. He used his hand to tear it, but he couldn’t even tear the plastic bag, so he put it in his mouth and held it with his teeth, ripping it open with a hiss. He spread his left hand, spit the bag out onto his palm, as a small stream of transparent liquid flowed out, covering his palm at the same time as more than a needle with a plastic tube.
“Needle… Is it soaked in… Soaked in protective fluid?” Lu RanKong put down the bag, picked up the needle with his right hand, and shook his wet left hand off. He held the needle and went for the bag again, turning the syringe inside out as well. “Right, and… And the syringe. Why is the syringe empty?” He held up the syringe to the light, “Xiao Yu, your inhibitor… Is it in the syringe?”
He suspected there was a separate potion in the bag and picked it up again to rummage around.
Lan Yu’s heart began to chill as he saw the water dripping out of the bag, then saw the needle and a blackness came over him. The needle had apparently been disconnected and all the inhibitor liquid inside had drained out.
Lu RanKong was still looking for the potion in the bag, asking, “Xiao Yu, where is the inhibitor?”
Lan Yu whispered, “There’s no more. Dial the terminal of Director Wang.”
Lu RanKong also sensed that something was wrong, stopping the movement of his hands and freezing there, grunting and hurrying to hold back, his forehead bursting with veins.
Lan Yu swallowed and said with difficulty, “Is there any other means of communication at home? Dial Director Wang’s terminal and ask him to send a suppressor, or contact the pheromone security center.”
“Okay…” Lu RanKong moved to the sofa and retrieved a terminal from a cupboard, and was about to dial it with a trembling hand when he stopped.
“What’s wrong?” Lan Yu asked.
Lu RanKong said, “Then… Then your hidden identity will be exposed.”
He didn’t know why Lan Yu wanted to hide his Omega identity, but there must be a reason, and if he contacted someone else, it would be impossible to hide it.
“Don’t mind that, let’s fight this first.” Lan Yu anxiously urged, and suddenly remembered, “Make a quick purchase, let the smart robot send it in.”
“Ah, yes, that works.” Lu RanKong said.
When he ordered a suppressant on the terminal, he lay on the carpet drenched in sweat, his whole body looked like it was about to collapse, his eyes were lax, and he was breathing heavily. Suddenly remembering something, he asked, “This… Your pheromone will not float out, right?”
When an Omega was in heat, if their gland was exposed, the pheromone would spread out in several times the concentration, and the Alpha who had never marked an Omega wouldn’t be able to stimulate the instinctive reaction when exposed to the pheromone in heat, and the consequences may be unimaginable.
Lan Yu hurriedly said, “It’s okay, my Alpha gland patch is covering the Omega patch underneath. Don’t worry, the pheromones can’t get out.”
Lu RanKong didn’t know whether he had heard or not, but after looking at the ceiling for a moment, he shivered and reconnected to the internet.
“No, I have to order… I’ll order ten glandular patches.” He finally felt relieved after ordering the glandular patches, and said in a trance-like manner, “Xiao Yu, I think I’m going to burn up, pay attention… If I burn up, I’ll… I’ll go to the bathtub, so as not to set the house on fire.”
Lan Yu’s heart was full of regret and heartache. Regret that he didn’t keep that inhibitor well, heartache that Lu RanKong was now entering the official heat and was enduring that wave after wave of torment.
He was quite aware of the pain that was like an ant eating you from the inside out. Once when he was in heat on location, the suitcase with the inhibitor was lost by the crew, and although the crew got him an inhibitor later, he had experienced what it was like to be in heat officially and knew it was several times more unbearable.
And without inhibitors, that pain could only be calmed with Alpha pheromones.
“Relax for now, I’ll take back control of the body. Relax and don’t resist me.” Lan Yu said to Lu RanKong in his head.
Lu RanKong was still groggy, but as soon as he heard this, he instantly woke up and said guardedly, “No, I… I can hold on, you can’t take it back.” He looked around and realized he was still lying on the floor, so he moved forward a little, struggled to get up, and leaned back on the couch.
“Xiao Yu, you Omegas are really working too hard, I want to… To treat you well.” After he finished the sentence, another hot flush hit him, so he stifled it by biting his lower lip, only hurriedly releasing it after tasting a hint of blood.
This was Lan Yu’s body and he didn’t want to cause even a little damage to him.
Lan Yu tried to grab control of the body, but as soon as the concentration was noticed by Lu RanKong, he hurriedly said, ”Don’t fight, you can’t do anything… Let’s not waste our energy on this.”
“Let’s take turns, okay? It hurts me to watch you suffer like this.” Lan Yu didn’t give up and continued to concentrate, but found that he couldn’t feel his body’s response at all.
“I said you can’t overpower me, don’t… Don’t fight, so I have to divide my energy to concentrate, very… It’s tiring.” Lu RanKong said intermittently.
“Xiao Yu, you are my Alpha, no, you are my… my Omega, I will protect you.” Lu RanKong finished this sentence with a gasp, followed by a muffled grunt.
Lan Yu’s heart was racing, and he didn’t know how long it would take for the inhibitors ordered to arrive, and Lu RanKong was already somewhat unable to control his estrus instincts and was beginning to crave Alpha pheromones.
“Xiao Yu, I want to… want to go and stab that Lontan person to death, and then… then return the body right to you.” He stared laxly at the ceiling, mouth agape.
Lan Yu said heartily, “You’re already like this, so don’t bother with that Lontan person.”
“No, that’s not right.” Lu RanKong paused, “After you stab him to death, my body is yours to do with as you please.”
“What can I do…”
“You sit on it and move… move yourself.” Lu RanKong said.
After saying that he struggled to get up.
Lan Yu was really distressed and said, “How can we stab him to death now? He will come out once the hidden door is opened and stab us both in the back.”
Lu RanKong was encouraged by the idea of moving on his own, and didn’t know where the strength came from, but he slowly stood up. Only half a step away, he fell back to the sofa.
“You need to be refreshed now, don’t torment yourself.” Lan Yu saw that he was bent on stabbing that Lontan person, and was very anxious.
“Kill him, and we won’t need… inhibitors anymore.” Lu RanKong didn’t know what came to mind, suddenly smiled, only before the corners of his mouth pulled away, he frowned again and grunted in pain.
“Be sensible. My physical condition is bad and there is no way to take him.” Lan Yu said.
Lu RanKong didn’t say anything, but took a few long breaths, one hand on the back of the sofa, one hand under the body, tenaciously trying to stand up again. His two legs were shaking and wobbling, but his eyes remained steadfast and persistent, like a fighter who never gave up his faith.
