Gu Liheng led Su Ling back to the living room. There were 3 rows of long hangers in the middle of the living room. Each hanger was filled with various styles of clothes. There are 2 sets of clothing for each style, the color is the same, but the size is different - those are clearly couple outfits. Su Ling immediately thought of the clothes he chose for male god and himself when they went out to play the day before. He laughed, "...The closet can't fit all these."
Gu Liheng doesn't think that it is a problem to be considered and said, "Just pick what you usually wear and we’ll put the rest in the cloakroom."
Amused, Su Ling said, "Rich people can afford to be willful!"
Gu Liheng looked calm as he said, "It didn't cost much," he looked at Su Ling, "Before I met you, money is just a number for me, and I don’t use much in general. I didn't know what to buy." His eyes moved slightly, "Am I boring?"
In Su Ling’s mind, he thought ‘is this the trouble of the rich’? But thinking about it carefully, male god’s lifestyle is quite simple. Unlike the ordinary rich second-generation, he doesn’t splurge on sports cars or other expensive things. Compared with the money earned, the money spent is almost negligible.
"I don't think you are boring," Su Ling joked with a smile, "but you looked like a human money maker machine."
Gu Liheng: "I don't care about the money. It’s just that I'm used to dealing with company affairs, and I like it."
Gu Liheng has been in contact with the Gu family business since he was a child. He likes the feeling of strategizing in a business. Money is not what he values most.
Su Ling: "You are so suitable to be a president," his eyes curled up, "but since you have made money, you should enjoy life better!"
Su Ling looked at Gu Liheng and said, "You have been with the company since you were young, and you have devoted most of your time to the company. In the future, you will spend more time thinking about your life and I will there to experience different things with you."
Hearing that, Gu Liheng's eyes turned gentle. He stroke Su Ling’s black hair and said, "Okay." His young man's concern filled his heart with warmth. He is looking forward to doing all kinds of things that he has never experienced with him.
Su Ling's eyebrows curved with smiles and he pulled Gu Liheng to choose their clothes with him. Choosing 5 sets of clothing suitable to wear, for now, they hung them in the closet and Domi will put the rest in the cloakroom.
After choosing clothes, the two went to the fragrance making room. Thinking that he would be spending a lot of time in the spiritual plant room in the future, Su Ling got Domi to move in a single sofa and placed it beside the window in the spiritual plant room; specially prepared for male god.
"Call me if you need help." Seeing Su Ling nodded, Gu Liheng sat down on the sofa.
Su Ling smiled and turned to look at the flower bud that is soaking in the growth fluid. The growth fluid was 10 times diluted with the vine liquid. According to Uncle Lóng, the bud couldn't stand it if used directly with the vine liquid. The flower bud that was the size of a soybean is now the size of a green pea, and there is a twig about 2 cm from the top of the bud. With this growth speed, the flower bud should be able to plant in the soil tomorrow.
Next, Su Ling walked to the already grown Flower Bud Grass. Before he could touch the Flower Bud Grass, the leaves from Lopseed and Baby's breath drew close to rub against the back of his hand. At this moment, the tip of the root wrapped around his wrist lifted up and swept away the leaves, making the 2 plants immediately retracted their leaves. Su Ling lightly squeezed the root in amusement before gently stroking the 2 plants. After that, he touched the top of the Flower Bud Grass branch. Using his pheromones to communicate with it, Su Ling harvested a small branch from the Flower Bud Grass.
Returned to the workbench, Su Ling first made a fragrance that hides pheromone smell with the vine liquid, and then made a special inhibitor with the branch. Both products have specific formulas and they are simple to make. Having fully equipped with high-tech machinery, Su Ling can’t go wrong. However, the fragrances he tried to make after that were not easy. He hadn't officially studied how to make fragrances in this world, and he is still not clear about the properties of various spiritual plant raw materials, let alone which combination would smell unpleasant.
Fortunately, he has no shortage of spiritual plant raw materials. With the equipment he has, and randomly mixing the raw materials, he would find out the effect of the finished products. This is actually a very wasteful method. However, it is difficult for him to master the theoretical knowledge of spiritual plant and fragrance making in a period of time. Going through a lot of experiments are the easiest way to make fragrances. Su Ling found it very novel every time he checked the effect of a finished product because the result was unpredictable. He experimented the whole morning with great enthusiasm.
After lunch, Gu Liheng said, "Gu Ming has been arrested and the court will open a week later."
Su Ling couldn't help sighing in admiration, the efficiency in Planet Belle is sure fast.
Soon, this news became today's headline. Su Ling checked the news before taking a nap and saw that many people were talking about it. Netizens lamented the darkness of the wealthy and expressed shame and disgust for Gu Ming's actions in harming his own relatives. However, upon seeing the second most discussed topic, Su Ling's eyes narrowed. That was Gu An’s post in his own Boyan: “Super shocked, I can’t believe this is true. Father and uncle are the two people I admire the most...”
Most comments under that post were sympathy. After all, Gu An was only 6 years old kid 20 years ago. Even if Gu Ming really harmed Gu Yuan, it probably has nothing to do with Gu An. Of course, some people ridiculed and questioned whether he knew about the crime but choose not to report it.
Gu Liheng holds Su Ling's shoulders and glanced at the holographic screen, "Don't read anymore, go and rest."
Su Ling looked at Gu Liheng and asked, "Do you think Gu An knows?"
"Whether he knows or not, this matter will have nothing to do with him," Gu Liheng said in a cold voice, "but the last accident definitely has something to do with him."
Make sense, as the netizens said, Gu An was still so young at that time. Su Ling smiled and noticed that the hands on his shoulders tightened when he(GLH) mentioned the accident. He tilted his head and kissed male god's face, pulling him to lie down, "Let's rest together."
Gu Liheng's eyes moved slightly, and he enveloped Su Ling in a hug without doing anything else. After a nap, Gu Liheng received a call from Mother Gu and they discussed the matters related to the trial.
Su Ling listened for a bit and went to change into his swimming trunks. Coming back, he leaned against the wall and waited for a while, and found that the topic had already changed to some of Gu company's projects. It seemed like male god could not finish talking for a while. Hence, he walked to Gu Liheng's side, patted him on the shoulder, and pointed upstairs.
Gu Liheng's gaze slipped past Su Ling’s pale body and saw that there are still certain ‘marks’ left on his body. That caused Gu Liheng's throat to tighten, and he swiftly moved his eyes away before nodding.
Su Ling questioningly raised his eyebrows and went out of the bedroom to the top floor. Three-quarters of the top floor is occupied by the swimming pool. The blue sky and white clouds are reflected in the water, and the water is crystal clear. He took Xian Mo Yu out to put in the corner, and Lóng Mo Téng jumped from his wrist to Xian Mo Yu’s petals. Xian Mo Yu stretched its petals, and its roots were swaying in the air freely. It was very relaxing. There was a soothing fragrance wafting around, which was more intense than they were indoors. Lóng Mo Téng has also become much bigger; stretching its leaves and enjoying the sunshine. When Su Ling saw this, the thought that plants really liked sunlight flashed in his mind. He tested the temperature of the water before jumping into the water and started swimming freely. When his body was exposed to the surface of the water, his wet skin shone in the sun.
15 minutes later, Domi brought snacks and drinks and placed them by the pool, "Owner's beautiful Omega, owner said to remember to take a rest."
Su Ling kicked the water and slid gently to the edge of the pool. His breathing was a little quick as he said, "Thank you, I know."
Su Ling laid down on the shore, with his back basking in the sun. He glanced at his pale arms and flipped them so more area is exposed to the light. It would be best if he could be tanned into wheat color, his skin is too pale right now. After a break, Su Ling took a swig from the drink. The familiar taste brought a smile to his eyes. This is Belle's most famous energy drink and his favorite flavor. After drinking several sips, he kicked out at the wall of the pool, slid out, and continued swimming.
When Gu Liheng went upstairs, what he saw was the young man’s agile figure in the water. Pale skin, perfect body proportions, and the traces left by him that had not faded, all of which made his eyes turn darker.
Su Ling soon felt a blazing gaze falling on him. He floated in the water, smoothed his hair from front to back, and looked towards the door. His face was wet, making his eyebrows looked deeper, his skin paler, and his lips redder than usual. The combination gave him a soul-stirring charm.
Gu Liheng's heart jumped. He has an urge to lock the young man up, not letting anyone see him. At the same time, a familiar heat surged in his body. He wanted to hug the young man tightly, kiss him hard, and possess his entire body.
Already very familiar with Gu Liheng’s aro-used expression, Su Ling raised his eyebrows and smiled, "Mr. Gu, your self-control has weakened yo."
Gu Liheng looked into Su Ling’s eyes and did not refute his words. With a deep voice, he said, "Remember to take a rest, I will go down first."
Su Ling: "You already got Domi here to monitor at me. Don't worry, I won't mess around."
Gu Liheng took a deep look at Su Ling, then turned and went downstairs.
Su Ling did not ask male god to stay. Papa Xian and Uncle Long are here, and the frequency of them having s-e-x has been very high recently. He doesn't want to go through the embarrassing process of applying medication at ‘that’ place for the time being. He leaned back and started to backstroke. In his field of vision are the broad sky and cotton candy-like white clouds. Su Ling is in a good mood, and thinking of male god, he curved his eyes happily. He worked hard to exercise also for the sake of his happy life with male god in the future.
Gu Liheng went down 2 flights of stairs, and the sound of water came from behind him. He sighed inwardly, his eyes deep. Some things must be done as soon as possible, otherwise, he may not be able to control himself. He quickly went downstairs and opened his bracelet to make some preparations.
An hour later, Su Ling returned to the bedroom from the top floor. He briefly glanced around the room but didn’t see male god. He took a shower, changed into casual clothes, and went to the study.
Gu Liheng was sitting in the study to deal with some business affairs. When he saw Su Ling, his brows furrowed and he said, "Don't let your hair wet like this."
Su Ling: "It doesn't matter since I’m not going to sleep now. It will dry soon."
Approaching nearer, Su Ling propped his hands on the table, and looked at Gu Liheng, "Can I remodel the spiritual plant room?"
Gu Liheng did not ask for the reason and agreed, "You can do whatever you like. Do you want to hire a designer as well?"
Su Ling shook his head, "No, I already have an idea," he thought for a while and asked, "have all the villas nearby been sold?"
Gu Liheng: "En."
Su Ling regrettably said, "It's a pity then. I was planning to buy one nearby."
His eyebrows furrowed, Gu Liheng grabbed Su Ling’s wrist and asked, "Do you want to buy a villa?"
Su Ling nodded, Gu Liheng continued to ask, "Why? You don't want to live together?"
Su Ling: "Of course not. But before getting married, I have to have a bit of property in hand right? I can't just marry you with empty-handed, right?"
"It's okay," Gu Liheng said, "you don't need to buy anything. It’s enough as long as you are here."
Su Ling smiled but did not agree. He stood on his ground and said, "I will take a look at nearby properties when I have time."
Gu Liheng looked at Su Ling’s face and asked, "You don't believe me?"
Su Ling looked at male god and explained, "If I don't believe you, I won't choose to be with you. This could be considered...a ceremony before marriage." Getting married without preparing anything gives him a feeling like he is living off a sugar daddy. Thinking of this, he couldn't help laughing.
Gu Liheng's eyes moved slightly, and he didn't persuade the young man anymore. It’s fine as long as the young man believes in him.
Su Ling sat down opposite Gu Liheng and said, "You can continue to handle your business matter. I’ll start drawing a picture of the transformation of the spiritual plant room."
His idea is simple. The wall where the window of the spiritual plant room is located can be made into an automatic door to facilitate the entry and exit of the spiritual plants. This way, as long as they want to bask in the sun, they can go out anytime to go to the garden or backyard, which is more convenient. After all, Papa Xian said it will take care of him for the rest of his life. He couldn't let Papa Xian stay indoors forever.

 Not sure if anyone will confuse SL’s words but lemme explain. SL is a guy from Earth after all. That means his mindset is guys need to have property and be the breadwinner. In his mind, he felt like he is living off a woman’s money if he doesn’t have financial stability to prove himself :v
