At the dining room
Su Ling ate his food quickly and his cheeks were bulging. He buried his face in the bowl as if all his focus is placed on the food in front of him.
Gu Liheng couldn't stand it anymore, so he filled a small bowl of soup and put it beside Su Ling. He said, "Eat slowly."
Swallowing the food in his mouth, Su Ling turned to look at Gu Liheng and smiled; his eyebrows curved with joy.
Seeing that, Gu Liheng's expression softened, and the corners of his mouth rose slightly, "Feeling happy?"
Su Ling uttered an En, and his gaze fell on the corner of Gu Liheng’s mouth, "You are smiling."
Gu Liheng was startled, and smiled deeper, "Will you feel that you are not used to it?"
Looking at Gu Liheng’s smile, the eagerness Su Ling felt before suddenly calmed down. He said, "Of course not. Smile or not, as long as it's you, I will like it. It’s fine as long as you feel comfortable."
The young man’s words were straightforward and enthusiastic. Gu Liheng's eyes darkened. After staring at him for 2 seconds, Gu Liheng looked down at the soup bowl beside Su Ling and said, "Drink some soup, and eat slowly."
Su Ling smiled and obediently drank the soup. When he started to eat again, his speed was much slower. His appetite was only half of Gu Liheng’s portion. Before this, he was eating quickly so he felt full soon. Putting down his chopsticks, Su Ling drank a mouthful of water and stood up, "You eat slowly, I'll go back to the room." After he took 2 steps, he then added, "Our room upstairs."
Gu Liheng's hand that was holding the chopsticks unconsciously gripped hard.
Su Ling smiled and reminded, "Eat well. I'll be waiting for you," he paused before adding, "And I won't cry!"
Hearing that, Gu Liheng's breathing hitched up. He stared at the young man’s back until he disappeared from his sight. After that, Gu Liheng's eating posture was still impeccable and he looked calm, but his speed was much faster than usual.
No one can refuse such an obvious invitation from the young man. But can his(SL) body tolerate... Gu Liheng slowed down his eating speed and his brows frowned. The Omega has given an invitation, so it would be very hurtful if the Alpha rejected it. He had rejected the young man on this kind of thing before. So now, whether it is mentally or physically, he does not want to refuse anymore. Putting down his chopsticks, Gu Liheng quickly opened his bracelet and entered the online mall. Then he clicked into the Omega specialty store and bought some medicine.
After Su Ling left the dining room, he went to the spiritual plant room first and released Xian Mo Yu from the space storage. Lóng Mo Téng immediately jumped from his wrist to Xian Mo Yu’s petals. He smiled, "Papa Xian, Uncle Lóng, you guys can rest here. If you have something, please send me a message," Then he reminded, "You must not penetrate the ceiling with your poison!"
Xian Mo Yu wrote in Su Ling’s mind, "You don't want me to stay in your room?" At the same time, it cried to its friend, "My son won't stick to me anymore!"
Lóng Mo Téng: "Stop with your stupid crying behavior. Human lovers need a private space to do intimate things, understand?"
Xian Mo Yu's roots shook, "Am I going to have a grandson?"
Lóng Mo Téng: "Maybe... but let's put this out first. We only care about your son, not your grandchildren. That means we will return to the forest when your son dies."
Xian Mo Yu: "I know."
Su Ling didn't know what the two were talking about. Looking at Xian Mo Yu's question, he coughed embarrassingly and said, "It's not suitable for you to stay in my room today."
Already had a quick chat with its friend, Xian Mo Yu expressed its understanding and wrote, "I understand! You go ahead to make babies, I won't watch."
Su Ling: "...No, not making a baby!"
A root stroked the top of Su Ling’s head lightly, "Don't be shy, son. Reproduction is the law of nature."
Su Ling doesn’t know if he should laugh or cry. He raised his hand to pinch the root and said, "I’ll go upstairs now."
Back in the room, he removed his isolator and took a black silk robe into the bathroom. After his shower, he went out wearing the robe. A glance at the window and Su Ling saw that the sunlight outside the window is just right. But his face turned red when he thought of what he will be doing soon. He seemed a little too impatient, but he couldn't help it. The anxiety he felt when male god fell in a coma, the worry when male god is lying on the hospital bed, and the excitement when male god has recovered... His heart has never been able to calm down, and he just wanted to do something to be sure.
Su Ling fastened his belt casually, walked out of the bathroom, and lay on the bed. He reached out and dragged a pillow to put under his chin. Then he tapped his bracelet and checked the relevant information for complete marking. Looking at the detailed description online, his face became redder and redder, and he was quite shocked. The details were really kind of explosive. To think that his body has some reactions that would go out of control makes him very embarrassed. His body right now is completely different from his body on Earth, and the part that reacted is not the front, but the back. He closed his bracelet and buried his face in the soft pillow; giving up his search. It's better to feel the changes personally as each individual has different reactions and cannot be completely used as a reference.
As Su Ling is still thinking, the bed sank slightly and the side of his neck was covered by warm palms. Then male god’s magnetic and hoarse voice sounded at his ear, "Don’t lie down like this, you will be suffocated."
Following the strength of the palm, Su Ling tilted his head and rest on it. Male god is still wearing a shirt and trousers; apparently, he has just reached upstairs. Su Ling wrinkled his nose but didn't smell the scent he wanted. So he pointed at Gu Liheng’s neck and ordered, "Take off your isolator."
The moment the words fell, the back of his neck was pressed by the slightly callused thumb and his body trembled. Su Ling shrank his shoulders and groaned softly. "You..." His eyes widened slightly, with surprise in his eyes, and his eyes were red.
Gu Liheng whispered, "Sorry, bear with me."
His palm ignited spots on Su Ling's body, Su Ling couldn't stand it and wanted to hug him, but Gu Liheng stopped Su Ling, "Wait a bit."
Su Ling was driven crazy by the touch and the scent of citrus mint became stronger and stronger in the air.
Gu Liheng was half kneeling on the bed, breathing fast and heavy. When it is almost time, he took out the medicine that he bought. Su Ling has already gotten w-et and the medicine was smoothly applied. Wiping his fingers clean, Gu Liheng rubbed Su Ling's head lightly and said, "It will be all right soon, wait for me."
Su Ling's eyes were filled with tears. After Gu Liheng went to the bathroom, he clenched his fist and thumped the pillow before burying his face in the pillow. Bastard! Outrageous!
The place where the medicine was applied is slightly hot but very comfortable. Su Ling knew that male god did it for his own good. But compared to this way of applying the medicine, he rather it hurt a little instead.
When the bathroom was opened again, a strong aroma of red wine came out, quickly sweeping the entire room. The bed sank, and Su Ling fell into a warm and strong embrace. He originally planned to wait for male god to come out and express his dissatisfaction with the way he applied the medicine. However, his body became so soft that he has forgotten to say anything. He just wants to entangle tightly with male god.
When Su Ling woke up again, the sky has already turned dark. There was a dim yellow night light in the bedroom, which was very warm. The pheromone mixed in the air has been dispersed, leaving only a soothing smell of fragrance. He glanced around the room, but he did not see male god. He tried to get up but stopped because his muscles were still aching. However, his condition is better than before, and the place behind felt much more comfortable. He sat cross-legged on the bed, recalling the scene before, and slowly frowned.
Gu Liheng carried the food into the room and saw Su Ling’s expression. He quickly put the food on the bedside table before placing the back of his hand against his forehead. Feeling that Su Ling’s temperature is normal, he relieved again.
"Are you feeling uncomfortable anywhere?" Gu Liheng asked worriedly.
Su Ling stared at male god before saying, "You didn't mark me permanently, did you?" He recalled, "It doesn't feel right, and you were not there when I woke up!"
After being a permanent marking, the AO pair won’t be able to separate from each other for a period of time. On the other hand, the duration is not correct either. A permanent marking cannot end in just one afternoon.
Hearing that, Gu Liheng's heart softened. With the Omega requesting a permanent marking, it means that he has complete trust and gives himself to the other party. He held Su Ling's hand and said, "Yes, I didn’t mark you permanently." He looked into Su Ling's eyes, "It is very irresponsible to mark an Omega completely before marriage."
His beloved Omega allowed him to do whatever he wants with his body, and it is a great test for him to restrain the urge from marking him permanently. But he must restrain himself. His young man is smart but emotionally unbridled. He can't ignore the custom just because the young man doesn't understand.
Su Ling is not a pure Omega after all. He used to be a man on Earth so he didn't have the self-protection concept or feeling disadvantaged. Moreover, he had absolute trust in Gu Liheng. Pouting, he said, "It’s not like you won't take the responsibility."
Gu Liheng said softly, "I just wanted for everything to be perfect for you." Like all Omega’s fantasies to meet someone and fall in love, then having an unforgettable wedding, before finally experiencing the wonderful process of permanent marking.
On the other hand, Su Ling doesn't really care about the order. "For me, it's perfect if you can mark me permanently. Then we get married and stay together forever."
Gu Liheng has a gentle expression, he didn’t try to correct Su Ling and said, "I know. I will make the arrangements as soon as possible."
Su Ling pounced on Gu Liheng and asked, "What arrangements? Marriage or permanent marking?"
A smile flashed in Gu Liheng's eyes, "Marriage."
Thinking that the real purpose he wanted to do a permanent marking is for the marriage, Su Ling stopped worrying about the matter anymore. He thought about it and said, "I should also be prepared."
"You don't have to do anything."
Su Ling raised his eyebrows, "How can I not do anything?"
Gu Liheng rubbed his black hair and comforted, "As you like then. Eat something first."
Su Ling turned over and got out of the bed. As soon as he stood up, his legs suddenly softened. Fortunately, Gu Liheng caught him in time from falling. Gu Liheng hugged him and placed him on the bed. Su Ling kicked around and tried to step on the ground again, "I want to rinse my mouth first."
Hence, Gu Liheng bent over and carried Su Ling with a princess carry to the bathroom.
Su Ling's head bump at Gu Liheng’s shoulder as he said, "I want to increase the amount of exercise. I’m too weak."
Gu Liheng chuckled, "You are an Omega, don't mind so much about your physical fitness. It’s fine as long as you are healthy," he paused before adding, "I like to hold you like this."
Su Ling: "Aren't you tired?"
"You are very light." Gu Liheng said. Though he is carrying Su Ling, his breathing is still stable.
Seeing male god doing his thing effortlessly, Su Ling didn't say anything. He rinsed his mouth before eating dinner. Then they went for a walk in the garden. His mood is feeling stable at the moment, and he thought about something, "What is the dark web?"
Gu Liheng explained, "Similar to a mercenary organization, but the tasks posted were all illegal. People who needed something will publish their task and bounties through the dark web, and the executors complete the tasks."
Su Ling: "In other words, Giant Bear took the task posted by someone?" After he said that, he subconsciously explained, "I’m not trying to exonerate him, I just wanted to make it clear. The fact that he is not caught means the people behind him are also at large. He has acted on your father and may have no ill intentions for you."
Gu Liheng shook his hand lightly and looked at Su Ling, "Don't be nervous, I know you care about me. I have asked someone to check it out and assigned people to monitor those who might have the possibility to attack my father at that time. There will be results soon."
Su Ling smiled, male god thought of the same thing as he did. At this moment, his bracelet rang and he connected the call.
Ni An: "Xiao Ling, I have successfully researched the effectiveness of that liquid. It can hide AO pheromone directly."
Ni An's voice was excited and he did not stop talking, "Except for during AO estrus period, the liquid can hide the pheromones for 20 hours in one use. It doesn’t have any side effects and doesn’t burden the glands.
Su Ling's eyes lit up, "Can you tell me about the formula?"
Ni An easily agreed, "Yes," he asked, "How much liquid do you still have?"
Su Ling estimated in his mind. Uncle Lóng can give him some vine liquid every day, which is about 50 ml per day. He said vaguely, "Not a lot."
Ni An: "I have used a large part of the one you mailed to me for my research. I planned to give the rest to the research institute so that they can study for artificial substitutes. Can I?"
Su Ling: "Of course you can!"
It is best if a substitution is successfully created. Then even if one knows that the vine liquid belongs to Uncle Lóng, they won’t target Uncle Lóng.
Ni An: "Thank you, please come to my laboratory when you have time. I will show you the production process."
Su Ling thought for a while and said, "I will be free tomorrow, can I go by at 10.00 am?"
Ni An: "Okay, I will give you an appointment card."
After hanging up the call, Su Ling quickly received a 10.00 am electronic appointment card from Ni An. He glanced at it and turned off his bracelet. Then he told male god of the effect of vine juice, "Tomorrow I will go to Doctor Ni An’s laboratory to learn the formula."
Gu Liheng: "I will accompany you."
Su Ling smiled and grabbed his hand, "It's nice to have a holiday together."
Raw word count: 6480 (whole chapter)
 It's not mentioned here due to river crab so Banana is throwing a guess that GLH is turning SL on and massaging his chrysanthemum hehe. Then he probably scissored him before applying some good lu-be.
 Probably related to the river crab above. SL is having a fit because he's embarrassed by the preps? Idk _(;3/
Banana: Please tell me if I missed anything. Was speed translating this chapter and my mind felt numb from seeing all the words _(;3/ #IWannaGoPlayGames :P
