Lop-Eared Guard - Chap 30
Lu Shangjin wiped his dripping hair with a towel, bent one leg against the bedside, and held the phone in one hand. His usual cold eyebrows appeared a little more gentle, looking at the little rabbit across the screen as though he was looking at a small pet.
On the screen, Yan Yi was about to change his clothes. Just as he put the phone on the bed, Lu Shangjin lifted the corner of his lips, the faint yellow wall lamp making the outline of his face more three-dimensional, “I want to see you change your clothes.”
“What’s there…so good to see…you’ve seen all of me before.” The skin under the soft fluff of his rabbit ears abruptly filled with blood and turned pink. Yan Yi hurriedly hid where Lu Shangjin couldn’t see and changed out of his work clothes.
He picked up the phone and didn’t know how to end this video call, but subconsciously, he didn’t want to end it.
“How stingy, I’ll take mine off to show you then.” Lu Shangjin smiled, untying his bathrobe and threw it aside before changing into the dark blue pyjamas beside his pillow.
The gunshot scars on Lu Shangjin’s body were no less than Yan Yi’s. When he was young, he used these scars as medals of merit, and loved to fight for power and strength.
He had a tall build, with an inverted triangle back connecting to a strong, thin waist and abdomen. He turned sideways to the screen to put on his pyjamas. When he raised his arms, the exposed shark muscle lines on his ribs were also carved with several messy scars.
Yan Yi suddenly clenched the sleeves of his pyjamas, his fingernails inadvertently digging into his palm.
Lu Shangjin had suffered these deep wounds for him.
Yan Yi had once fought against six M2 differentiated alphas. Even with the A3 top-grade differentiated glands, as he was too young and inexperienced, he was extremely strained when he had to pick on six, so he was strangled by one of the alphas and thrown in front of a ground roller.
The rollers were installed with long spikes, and it had sent Yan Yi flying.
The moment when he was almost grinded into minced meat, Lu Shangjin held him and rolled out, several long spikes scraping the side of his chest and ribs. At the time, the wound was so deep that his bones were visible, fresh blood dripping out unstoppably.
Lu Shangjin noticed that the little rabbit on the other side of the screen was wandering in his thoughts, so he snapped his fingers to attract Yan Yi’s attention again.
“Yan Yan, it’s so cold at home, when are you coming back?” Lu Shangjin asked the question plainly and gently, seeming to have no implications of forcing Yan Yi. However, Yan Yi could always feel an invisible oppressive force coming on directly.
“If we get together again, will you give me a baby?” Lu Shangjin asked very sincerely, even the subtle light in his eyes was clearly visible.
Yan Yi’s heart drummed loudly, the beat making his chest ache.
He was having one now. But he just didn’t dare to tell him, afraid that he couldn’t bear the unexpected reaction.
“The conception rate between us was low before, and even if I have a child, they may not be the alpha heir you want.” Yan Yi’s eyelids drooped as he cautiously tested Lu Shangjin’s attitude.
If possible, Yan Yi definitely hoped for the alpha in his heart to accompany him during his pregnancy, and at the same time, he didn’t want the child to be born without an alpha father.
Lu Shangjin said gently, “I don’t care. As long as it’s our child, I will like it.”
These words were too destructive to a pregnant omega who had no one to depend on, he almost fell into the enemy’s hands when he heard it.
Yan Yi almost blurted out to Lu Shangjin that he was pregnant.
These days, Lu Shangjin seems to have really changed. Even though he still appeared as domineering as before in some areas, he was indeed very considerate in every possible way, greatly matching up to the best alpha in Yan Yi’s heart.
Maybe he could try to trust him once more. If Lu Shangjin treated him coldly again, he could choose to leave when the time comes.
As Yan Yi was about to speak, the screen suddenly flashed with a call.
He wanted to hang up, but he hastily pressed to answer instead.
Xia Jingtian’s voice wasn’t very clear through the sound of car horns, “I’m about to reach the bar where you are, come out and pick me up. Hey, fuck! Don’t you know how to drive, idiot!”
The look on Yan Yi’s face changed slightly, and the phone had already hung up.
The display on Lu Shangjin’s side was frozen for a while. It wasn’t until Yan Yi hung up Xia Jingtian’s call that it returned to normal.
He raised an eyebrow and asked, “Did you get a call?”
Yan Yi’s expression was a little restrained as he still tried to answer flatly, “It’s an insurance seller. You…dry your hair and sleep early, I’m heading to bed too.”
“Selling insurance at three in the middle of the night?” Lu Shangjin narrowed his eyes slightly, carefully observing the subtle change in Yan Yi’s eyes.
Intentionally or not, the little rabbit was dodging his gaze, “…Is it inconceivable?”
“Oh.” Lu Shangjin wasn’t very happy. Originally, he was in high spirits and intended to have telephone sex with Yan Y, but was suddenly interrupted by a phone call from an unknown source.
“Then you should go to bed earlier too.” Lu Shangjin’s temper was also caught in a few short words, and he hung up the phone.
Yan Yi saw that Lu Shangjin seemed angry, but didn’t know how to coax or comfort him. He pursed his lips in distress for a moment, then first called Xia Jingtian, put on his coat, and went out to meet him.
When he went downstairs, Xia Jingtian was already waiting at the bar as he rubbed his face repeatedly to drive away his tiredness. After driving for about ten hours with only two breaks in between, he had already become part of driving fatigue.
As soon as he saw Yan Yi come down from the second floor, Xia Jingtian stood up abruptly and rushed up to him, pulling him into his arms. For most of the time, he had seen that Yan Yi was very weak, so almost as a conditional reflex, he released soothing pheromones in an instant.
The one who lunged forward was an M2 differentiated puma alpha. The race of lop-eared rabbits had some innate fear of fierce beasts in their bones, even towards Lu Shangjin.
At the sight of him rushing towards himself, Yan Yi subconsciously protected his stomach and his body tightened, not daring to move.
The soothing pheromones released by an alpha with a high compatibility fit and the soothing pheromones released by an alpha with an ordinary compatibility fit felt completely different to the omega.
If it were Gu Wei, who only had about 65% compatibility fit with Yan Yi, the soothing pheromones he released had little effect on him.
Lu Shangjin’s compatibility fit with Yan Yi was 75%, which was a very common value, but not considered particularly low. In addition, he had once marked Yan Yi before, so the soothing pheromones he released made Yan Yi feel very comfortable and safe.
However, Xia Jingtian was different.
His compatibility fit with Yan Yi was over 90. In other words, the soothing pheromones he released was like a powerful drug to him. As long as he was close to Xia Jingtian, Yan Yi had to consume most of the spirit to resist the fit attraction that was as sticky as a spider’s web, afraid that if he was not careful, he would be completely addicted to the land of warmth and tenderness, and wouldn’t be able to extricate himself.
Therefore, he had to completely cut off all contact with Xia Jingtian. Xia Jingtian coming to find him was like heroin sent voluntarily to the nose when the addiction to drugs was driving one to the point of insanity.
“Let go of me.” Yan Yi spent a lot of effort pushing Xia Jingtian away and he panted rapidly, “Put your pheromones…away…”
Yan Yi’s glands had recovered to the J1 grade, and his heat period had just ended, so there was still the lingering warmth of courting pheromones surrounding his body. The greater the recovery, the higher the pheromone concentration, and the reaction towards Xia Jingtian’s pheromones became more intense.
Xia Jingtian was able to resist the thoughts of dissolving Yan Yi into his body. He held onto the bar counter and forcefully pinched his own arm, letting the pain drive him awake.
Fortunately, the two of them were of high grade and their self control was strong enough that they didn’t get out of hand.
“What are you looking for me for?” Yan Yi asked wearily. All his energy was used to resist the fit attraction.
At that moment, he was also thinking that if he and Lu Shangjin could have such a compatible fit, how could their love become so exhausting and humbled as it was now?
Facing such a strong fit attraction, Yan Yi also wavered.
But he had been subconsciously carrying it on his shoulders and was unmoved.
“What did Lu Shangjin do to you?” Xia Jingtian looked Yan Yi up and down. Only after seeing that there were no injuries on his body and he didn’t appear sick, he could be a little relieved.
“He didn’t do anything.” Yan Yi managed to force a polite smile with difficulty. He then went to the bar to make a cup of refreshing and thirst-quenching mint tea for Xia Jingtian.
This little kid had helped him a lot. Although his warm and sincere pursuit made Yan Yi feel pressured, Xia Jingtian had been the only one who was with Yan Yi during his most difficult time.
He should at least be grateful. Moreover, there was nothing wrong with a child’s affection.
XIa Jingtian picked up the mint tea, his Adam’s apple rolled up and down before he asked hesitantly, “How’s your- body recently?”
“My body?” Yan Yi opened his hand, “I’ve mostly recovered.”
“No, the baby…how is it?” On the way, Xia Jingtian had typed up a draft of a full length novel, but in front of Yan Yi, he still didn’t know how to tell him about the false pregnancy.
Yan Yi was stunned for a moment, his eyes immediately turned gentle like a pool of clear flowing water had poured in. He touched his tummy gently, “Baby- is very good.”
The rest of Xia Jingtian’s words were stuck in his throat.
“Why don’t you go to the hospital tomorrow for a checkup? You don’t have to be scared, I’ll go with you.” Xia Jingtian’s hands that were holding the mint tea couldn’t help but exert some strength.
He still couldn’t bear to see Yan Yi’s disappointed look. After all, he was so looking forward to having a baby.
