Lop-Eared Guard - Chap 37
Edited & Proofread by: Yukirayu, Ruthsic
The bar street was brightly lit. In front of the entrance, fringed water lilies were floating on the clear waterway on either side of the bluestone bricks.
Ruins Bar was unusually deserted tonight and the door was closed.
Only a flower-shaped ceiling light was lit in front of the bar. An empty bottle reeled side to side before rolling to the corner, and it was picked up by Xia Jingtian, who poured it into his mouth in a drunken state.
This alpha was the only one sitting in front of the bar. The room was filled with the smell of wine and the intense M2 pheromones that had a scent akin to baby’s breath flowers.
“Boss, get me a bottle of whiskey.” Xia Jingtian leaned against the bar, seeming very sober, but his eyes were already in a state of drunkenness and he was lost in his mind.
Gu Wei was sitting at the corner of the sofa, hitting hard at the glands on the back of Xia Jingtian’s neck, and finally threw him directly onto the sofa in a mad fit. He buried his glands and head with a pillow to fend off the insane and uncontrollable M2 pheromones.
“Wei, fuck you!”
The streetlamps on the road lit up in succession, the traffic going through and from the highway gradually thinning out.
Yan Yi was stuck in the passenger seat. His seat belt was fiercely fastened by Lu Shangjin, as though he was strangling a prey, buckling Yan Yi into the seat.
“What are you doing…” Yan Yi reached out to loosen the seat belt, but his wrist was grasped in the palm of a large hand.
With an ugly expression, Lu Shangjin drove with one hand and overtook the car in front like a vicious devil.
“It hurts. You should drive carefully.” Yan Yi pried off Lu Shangjin’s fingers one by one. “You can’t overtake here.”
“Your glands haven’t recovered. What are you tossing about for?” Lu Shangjin gave him a sidelong glance from the rearview mirror. When he looked at the bruised fingerprints on his pale neck, the hand that withdrew clenched into a fist and hit the steering wheel. He felt extremely irritable.
Yan Yi moved a little bit away from Lu Shangjin and held the seat belt. “What are you angry about? Even if you didn’t come, I could also…”
“You can do jack shit.”
Lu Shangjin looked straight ahead as his expression turned uglier. “The value of your glands has already reached 2.5 billion dollars on the black market. Don’t you know how to keep a low profile while I’m away?”
“I’m sorry.” Yan Yi averted his eyes and stopped looking at him.
Suddenly, he saw Lu Shangjin’s left hand from the reflection on the glass. On it, there was a platinum wedding ring that had been lost for many years.
Yan Yi froze as he looked at the glass and turned back to stare at Lu Shangjin’s hand for a moment, then dazedly shifted his gaze to Lu Shangjin’s frosty expression.
A car in front took a sudden turn and Lu Shangjin abruptly braked as he cursed a low “fuck”.
His neck was shaken from it. He held the back of his neck, but accidentally touched the needle hole from the rut inhibitor on his gland and slightly drew in a breath.
This was the source of violent irritability.
The natural aggressive gene in the alpha’s blood was awakened. A cunning and vicious spider had successfully infuriated him.
Yan Yi grasped the seat belt as he was jerked forward. A box of things in the back seat of the car was thrown to the ground by the inertia.
“What fell?” Yan Yi looked back at the back seat. A bouquet of roses sprinkled with silver glitter was scattered from the flower box, a few fallen petals reflecting in his light grey eyes. The light in his eyes seemed to light up from the headlight of the car behind, turning into gentle flowing water.
He soon came back to his senses and withdrew his gaze, lowering his eyelids to hide the admiring expression on his face.
“Is that… for someone?” Yan Yi looked down at the corner of his shirt that was wrinkled from the fight, folding it in the opposite direction of the crease and smoothing it.
In less than an hour, Lu Shangjin had been misunderstood twice by this little rabbit. He took a deep breath and threw the car into a narrow road before stopping at a fountain of an abandoned park.
“Get out of the car.” Lu Shangjin put out the fire, leaning back against the headrest and closing his eyes.
Thinking that Lu Shangjin wanted to toss him out halfway, Yan Yi hesitated as he bit his lips and said, “Oh.”
As soon as he got out of the car, Lu Shangjin got out of the driver’s seat, taking out the bouquet of roses from the back. He held Yan Yi with one hand and carried his light body up to the edge of the dried-up fountain.
At a loss, Yan Yi sat at the edge of the fountain. His little rabbit ears immediately filled up with blood and became red and hot. He looked up at Lu Shangjin blankly when his arms were unexpectedly stuffed with a big bouquet of roses.
Lu Shangjin seemed to already be irritated to his limit. He puts his hands on the edge of the fountain where Yan Yi sat and trapped the little rabbit in the space of his arms, like a hawk looking down at the little white rabbit it hunted down. His sharp gaze cut down every inch of flesh and blood on his body, as if he was thinking about where to start eating.
“It’s for you. It’s all for you.” Lu Shangjin bit Yan Yi’s soft red lips hard, the hawk’s sharp claws latching onto the little white rabbit’s slender waist. He only released his hold when Yan Yi softly trembled in his arms.
“Do you understand?” Lu Shangjin asked with a raised eyebrow.
Yan Yi lifted his eyelashes, his eyes full of confusion. He wiped a drop of saliva from the corner of his lips and gathered the big bouquet of roses, holding it carefully. His mind was completely blank, and there was a tiny string buzzing in his heart.
He gazed at Lu Shangjin’s eyes in a daze, trying to discern something from this pair of cold and irritable eyes. But some things were concealed closely by his strongly possessive nature.
“Are you… jealous?” Yan Yi’s slightly opened lips pursed from surprise.
Lu Shangjin couldn’t respond for a moment.
A faint smile rose on the corner of the little rabbit’s lips. He held the bouquet tightly and said:,
“These are… so expensive.”
“If you like them, I’ll get someone to buy you one every day.”
It’s not like this was something valuable.
The smile on the corners of Yan Yi’s lips turned weak again from this sentence. He softly replied, “No need. This is good.”
“The ring,” Yan Yi put his thin and slender finger on Lu Shangjin’s left ring finger and muttered, “Didn’t you throw it?”
“Hm.” Yan Yi’s obedience gradually calmed Lu Shangjin’s restlessly furious heart. He took the bouquet of flowers, which was in the way between him and Yan Yi, and tossed it aside, then pulled Yan Yi towards him and stuck him to the hollow of his shoulder.
Yan Yi was a little reluctant to let go of the flowers. When he was pressed into his arms, his nose was immediately filled with the mixed scent of narcissus and tobacco.
Lu Shangjin lowered his head to check the glands at the back of his neck. It was still a light and smooth soft red, emitting the tender scent of milk candy.
The moment his lips touched the glands, a trace of numbness flowed into Yan Yi’s body through his nerves. He froze and closed his eyes nervously.
The imaginary pain of sharp teeth piercing his glands didn’t come as expected. Yan Yi waited patiently, but instead, Lu Shangjin only planted a faint kiss on his glands and soon let go.
“Let’s go have dinner.” Lu Shangjin pinched Yan Yi’s tender cheek. It may be due to his racial gift that his cheeks were still as smooth as silken tofu even though he was already twenty-seven years old.
Yan Yi picked the fallen petals by his side and inserted them back into the layered bouquet of flowers. He carried the bouquet and sat in the back seat, specifically sitting in the corner to avoid Lu Shangjin’s sight from the rearview mirror.
He then carefully arranged the bouquet, tidying each rose like they were newly bloomed ,and put it back into the flower box along with the fallen petals at his feet.
There was a card from the florist in the box which had a routine greeting printed on it. Yan Yi quietly took the card out and put it into his pocket, folding it together with his pregnancy examination report.
“What are you looking at?” Lu Shangjin couldn’t see what Yan Yi was holding from the rearview mirror.
“Nothing.” Yan Yi kept away the examination report and card, touched his lower abdomen and put the flower box close to him so that the baby could smell the roses sent by his alpha father.
“Don’t send flowers to other omegas, okay?”
