The Nutrition is Too Good - Chap 20.2
Zhong Yi was completely unaware that his actions could be considered extreme to the point of sexual harassment. He only felt that this little creature was soft and had an amazing texture to touch.
Just as he reached behind the little black cat to gently stroke its fluffy tail…
The kitten let out a soft meow, as if it couldn’t bear it any longer, and bit directly into Zhong Yi’s wrist.
Zhong Yi gasped and took a cold breath, watching as the small furry black ball agilely leaped and disappeared into the bushes in the garden, leaving no trace.
It didn’t bite hard, didn’t break the skin, just left a shallow tooth mark.
Zhong Yi couldn’t help but feel amused. He had been crouching for half the night just to give it a warm meal, but in the end, he got bitten instead. He thought to himself that this little thing was really mischievous.
Zhong Yi rinsed his hand with water from the kitchen faucet, closed the window, took a few sips of water, and then went upstairs.
As he passed the hallway, Zhong Yi glanced at the guest room next to him and noticed that the door was slightly ajar and the light was on.
Instinctively, Zhong Yi peered through the crack of the door and found that there was no one on the bed.
Zhong Yi was taken aback.
He tentatively knocked on the door, but received no response. Zhong Yi called out the name of the person who was supposed to be resting, but still, no one answered.
A living person had vanished into thin air in the middle of the night. Zhong Yi pushed open the bedroom door, feeling a bit scared and uneasy as he looked at the empty bed.
There seemed to be some noise coming from the bathroom.
Zhong Yi called out the person’s name again, but still received no response. Worried that something might have happened to him, Zhong Yi hesitated for a moment before finally pushing open the door to the bathroom.
Rong Mian was sitting on the bathroom sink, his cheeks and earlobes turning a ripe shade of pink.
He wore loosely fitted pajamas, with only one or two buttons fastened, and his eyes were filled with misty vapours, as he breathed rapidly, as if he had just finished some intense exercise.
When he saw the door being pushed open, Rong Mian’s eyelashes trembled slightly, and then he raised his eyes, looking somewhat bewildered at Zhong Yi.
Zhong Yi was momentarily taken aback.
He didn’t understand why this person was still awake in the middle of the night, dishevelled and staying in the bathroom, and why he was breathing so heavily…
Then, Zhong Yi suddenly realized.
This time, it was entirely Zhong Yi’s own fault for barging in. After he figured it out, he felt his own face heating up and his mind going blank. “I, I was just worried when I didn’t find you in the bedroom.”
Zhong Yi coughed and said, “Well, don’t burden yourself with any psychological worries. I understand. My, my, whatever, left first…”
Then, Zhong Yi paused in a strange manner.
Because he suddenly noticed something below the hem of Rong Mian’s pajamas—a soft, fluffy tail.
Zhong Yi’s gaze seemed to make Rong Mian aware of something. Rong Mian appeared to be slightly startled and took a few steps back, instinctively covering the tail behind him with his hand.
And Zhong Yi could clearly see, with his eyes wide open, that the tiny tip of a tail peeked out from between the boy’s fingers, trembling ever so lightly and subtly.
Zhong Yi was completely dumbfounded.
At that moment, he had no idea what to make of this eerie and shocking scene before him. He stared fixedly at the tail for what seemed like an eternity without uttering a word. After a while, he inexplicably felt a sense of familiarity with this tail.
Then Zhong Yi remembered. This tail was exactly the same as the one in the picture sent to him by Rong Mian last time.
Zhong Yi took a deep breath, thinking to himself…
When he saw the picture last time, Zhong Yi thought this thing was some unspeakable ordinary adult toy. But now that he had witnessed it with his own eyes, he realized that it was actually an electric one…
Zhong Yi’s expression was very peculiar. Rong Mian assumed that Zhong Yi’s reaction would be the same as when he sent him the picture last time, that he simply didn’t want to see his tail.
Rong Mian paused for a moment, then lowered his head with a hint of sadness.
He didn’t want things to turn out like this, but what Zhong Yi had done to him downstairs just now was far more excessive than anything he had ever encountered with any customer at the cat cafe.
Rong Mian rushed back into the room, transforming back into his cat form. Because he had run so hastily, he was panting heavily and his mind was filled with the warmth of Zhong Yi’s palm and the gentle expression on his face as he stroked Rong Mian’s body.
Then, Rong Mian lowered his head and dizzily realized that his tail wouldn’t retract.
Just as he was anxiously pinching his tail, unsure of what to do, Zhong Yi suddenly pushed open the door.
Rong Mian felt his ears burning.
He didn’t know what to do. Last time when he sent Zhong Yi the picture of the tail, Zhong Yi’s reaction was very indifferent. Rong Mian was afraid that Zhong Yi would dislike him even more.
So Rong Mian could only tighten his grip on his tail, instinctively shrinking back slightly, and softly said, “Can I… stay in my own room now?”
Zhong Yi felt his heart skip a beat.
Zhong Yi took a deep breath and took two steps back. He stuttered, “It’s, it’s fine. You young people, at this age… having some small needs is not a problem, I, I understand… Just go to bed early.”
Although it was Zhong Yi’s own home, he ended up fleeing in the end.
Walking through the corridor and standing in front of his own room’s door, at that moment, Zhong Yi pondered many things.
He had a lot on his mind, including what happened that day on the set and the words Shen Yan said to him, as well as everything that had happened between him and Rong Mian in these past few days.
From the first time they met in the restroom and ate canned cat food together, to the talent show where he performed a striptease, to the subsequent interactions with guests, to when he said he would sleep with him as a way to repay him, and now tonight, when he accidentally caught him pleasuring himself in the restroom… every single one of these incidents that happened to this child seemed inexplicably unreasonable.
Every day, Zhong Yi was subjected to varying degrees of new shocks because of this boy.
But Rong Mian had always been open and frank about sex. When he said he was willing to sleep with Zhong Yi that day, although his expression was somewhat shy, he still looked at Zhong Yi directly and calmly waited for his response.
At that time, Zhong Yi felt angry, but he knew that his anger was directed towards the company that had treated him this way for the past few years, and in fact, he had never disliked this child.
His eyes were clear and beautiful, and he had always been straightforward and sincere.
Zhong Yi suddenly realized the reason why he had been feeling conflicted and uneasy all night –
He didn’t want Rong Mian to leave.
