Lóng Mo Téng led the way and soon the team arrived in front of the hidden space. The other members of Hua Cheng's team had already met on the way. Hua Cheng looked at the mottled wall in front of him, made a gesture, and everyone dispersed. When the hidden space was forcibly opened, one could see that Giant Bear's expression suddenly changed from surprised to anger; his injury is almost dealt with.
Giant Bear reacted very quickly and jumped up from the bed. In the process, he put the medicine bottle away into his space storage and took out a black gun. Not even looking at the intruders, he shot directly at the opening on the wall.
Hua Cheng had been on alert so he managed to dodge the attack and shot at the same time.
Giant Bear stuck to the wall as his right hand shot continuously, and his left hand pressed hard on a brick. The wall behind him suddenly moved and his body fell back, following the wall to turn to the other side.
Hua Cheng tapped on his bracelet and said, "North."
Walking in the dark and slender passage behind the wall, Giant Bear’s eyes were fierce and filled with suspicion. How did he gets discovered? Apart from him, only 2 confidants knew about this secret hiding place. Was he betrayed?
"Giant Bear," A warning shout came from the front, and then 2 people came out of the corner, "Put down your weapon."
Giant Bear did not say a word and attacked directly.
Both sides fought tirelessly and gunshot sound filled the passage. There are many bullet holes in the walls. Suddenly, from the wall behind Giant Bear stretched out a vine of the same color as the wall. It grew bigger in the blink of an eye and tied Giant Bear from behind at a speed that the naked eye could not see clearly. The hand that Giant Bear used to hold the gun was firmly tied up. His palm was tied into a ball by the vine, so he could not hold anything at all. Also, his body and legs are also entangled with vines; wrapped up like a vegetable person.
Giant Bear’s expression changed as he shouted, "Lóng Mo Téng!"
The front end of the burnt vine leaf moved up in front of Giant Bear. The leaf then enlarged to the size of a human’s palm. Next, it swayed and started to slap Giant Bear’s face.
When Hua Cheng led his people to the point, that is what he saw.
"Boss, this Grade S spiritual plant has an enmity with Giant Bear?"
Hua Cheng's expression is complicated, "It should be."
4 policemen came over and their leader turned to Hua Cheng, "This man is a criminal, we have to take him away."
Hua Cheng nodded in understanding.
Policeman: "Thank you..." He looked at Lóng Mo Téng which is still slapping Giant Bear, "You are the one who brought it here?"
Hua Cheng shook his head and tried to communicate with Lóng Mo Téng, "President Gu’s madam is very worried about you and I want to report the situation to them. Do you want to go back with me?"
Lóng Mo Téng slapped 2 more times before letting go of the dizzy and swollen Giant Bear. It shrunk itself to circle Hua Cheng's wrist, and its leaves turned back to emerald green.
The police quickly cuffed Giant Bear but they did not leave immediately and stared at Lóng Mo Téng with bright eyes instead.
One person asked, "This is the Lóng Mo Téng that stopped the truck, right?"
Hua Cheng nodded, and then apologized, "I want to report to my boss, so I’m leaving first."
The two groups separated. In the car, Hua Cheng's subordinate has been staring at Lóng Mo Téng, "Boss, can you tell it to stay on my wrist instead?"
Hua Cheng raised his eyebrows, "Tell it yourself." He doesn’t believe that Lóng Mo Téng would listen to him.
Several people in the car started talking to Lóng Mo Téng, but Lóng Mo Téng didn't seem to hear; quietly acting like a real bracelet.
"Boss, could it be hurt?" Someone voiced his doubt.
However, when they arrived at the villa, they don’t have that doubt anymore.
The moment Lóng Mo Téng saw Su Ling, it rushed to his wrist and continued to act as a bracelet. Su Ling gently pinched the gray leaf and asked, "Uncle Lóng, are you okay?"
"I’m okay," Lóng Mo Téng explained, "Just a bit burnt. I will recover in 2 days, it’s fine."
Su Ling felt more relaxed and went to listen to Hua Cheng's report with Gu Liheng.
After Hua Cheng finished speaking, he looked at Su Ling expectantly and said, "Young Madam..."
"Stop!" The corner of Su Ling’s mouth twitched. He felt like his scalp has gone numb from the goosebumps and said, "You can either call me Su Ling, Xiao Su, or Xiao Ling."
Hua Cheng did not obey immediately and turned to seek approval, "President Gu, this?"
Gu Liheng nodded.
Assured, Hua Cheng said, "Xiao Ling, if something happens to the mercenary group in the future, can I ask Lóng Mo Téng for help?"
A big "No" immediately appeared in Su Ling's mind.
Su Ling spread his hands and translated, "It doesn't want to."
Hua Cheng looked regretful, "It's a pity. Its tracking ability is too strong, no human can do it at all."
Su Ling stroked its leaves and agreed, "It's very powerful."
In Hua Cheng’s mind, he thought to himself that he would come again to ask Lóng Mo Téng for help in the future. Maybe Lóng Mo Téng changed its mind at that time. He smiled and praised Lóng Mo Téng to the sky before leaving the villa.
Su Ling got up and went to the spiritual plant room. He released Xian Mo Yu finally, and let Lóng Mo Téng onto the petals.
Xian Mo Yu shook its roots and expressed, "Angry, why only now you are letting me out?!"
Su Ling squeezed a root and calmly said, "Something has happened, Uncle Lóng will tell you about it."
Not long after, Su Ling smelled a familiar stench; Xian Mo Yu is obviously angry. Pinching his nose, he returned to the spiritual plant room to soothe Papa Xian, and finally managed to calm its mood after a long while. At the same time, he managed to dispel its idea of going to the police station to melt down Giant Bear.
After dinner, Su Ling and Gu Liheng went for a walk in the garden. The garden is full of flowers and the temperature is very comfortable. Gu Liheng embraced Su Ling and hesitated for a while before saying, "In 3 days, Giant Bear will be sent to the death penalty jail."
Su Ling nodded to acknowledge and saw that Gu Liheng is looking at his expression. He raised his eyebrows and realized after a while, he almost forgot that he has a blood tie with Giant Bear. Su Ling took Gu Liheng's hand and pinched his defined fingers, "To me, he is just a bad stranger." He raised his lips and said with a smile, "The only relatives I have, are just you and Uncle Nalu."
Gu Liheng thought of Su Ling’s past and hugged him pityingly. Then he dropped a kiss on his forehead. Su Ling let go of his hand to circle around his neck. After that, he stood on tiptoes to kiss him. Their breaths mixed together, and their stable pheromone starting to spread. Red wine and citrus mint blended, and the temperature in the air became higher.
Being pushed against a nearby tree, Su Ling’s feet felt soft, and there were gasps in his voice, "Let’s go back to the room."
His voice was hoarse, which sounded particularly sultry. Hearing that caused Gu Liheng's eyes to darken and he bent down to kiss Su Ling harder. After a while, he released the young man and carried him in a princess carry, quickly returned to the bedroom.
It’s already the next day when Su Ling woke up. The moment he opened his eyes, a pair of hands reached out to wrap around his waist and gently rubbed, "How are you feeling?"
Su Ling’s body felt refreshed and he is in good spirits. The Alpha's meticulousness makes him feel at ease from the inside. This feeling fascinates him too much. He has longed for such stability since he was a child. Turning around, he hugged male god sideways and buried his face on his chest, "Very good," he rubbed his head, and looked up to meet male god's eyes, "I really like you."
Gu Liheng's black eyes stared intently at the young man. Then he lowered his head and kissed him on the forehead, his voice is hoarse, "I love you."
Su Ling smiled brightly, and continue to cling onto Gu Liheng. But soon, he felt the change in the male god's body, and his face changed slightly, "You..."
It’s really easy to get impulsive in the morning!
Gu Liheng hugged him tightly and said, "Don't be afraid. I’ll just hold you like this for a while."
Su Ling blinked, and his hand against Gu Liheng’s chest slowly moved down, "I will help you."
When they had breakfast, it is almost 10.00 am, 2 hours later than usual. Su Ling drank the porridge, and he is in high spirits. Finally, he gets the feeling of having a holiday. In the afternoon, he and Gu Liheng went to the amusement park to play the rides that they did not play last time.
Coming out of the Space Museum, Gu Liheng saw Su Ling’s sparkling eyes and rubbed his hair fondly, "How about going for an outer space honeymoon in winter vacation?"
Su Ling nodded quickly, "Okay!" He couldn't wait.
Unfortunately, they don’t have enough time to travel now, and his school will start in half a month. Winter vacation is after their wedding and there is enough time, which is the most suitable period.
On the return trip, he received a call from Nalu.
Nalu: "Xiao Ling, someone wants to buy the special inhibitors and concealers you put in the store at a high price, do you want to sell them?"
Su Ling: "No, not selling. Did someone get into heat at the store?"
The only reason why the medicines were known is Nalu used them on the guests.
"En, business has been very good in the store recently. A pair of AO with a particularly high compatibility rate appeared last night. I used the special inhibitors for them, just in case, and used the concealer agent. Their pheromones were instantly hidden. After that, they managed to chat happily in the store."
Nalu spoke with slight excitement in his tone, "It is also the first time I have seen such an effective inhibitor. It works quickly and without any side effects."
Su Ling: "It's not available for mass production for the time being so don't sell it. Keep it in the store for emergencies."
Nalu: "The price they pay is more than what we make a day in the store."
Su Ling: "There is no shortage of money for the time being. If you sell to one person, more people will want to buy it. If you sell all of them, it will be difficult to deal with similar problems in the store in the future.
"You are right," Nalu agreed and added, "It is said on the Internet that our shop is the safest place for AO meetings and dating right now. Before this, the spiritual plants got famous and that makes the shop famous. This time, the shop made the name for itself."
Su Ling laughed, "If you don’t have enough manpower in the store, you can hire more. You can hire a full-time spiritual plant specialist." Although he can help, he is only a novice after all and he has to go to school.
Nalu: "Okay, you don't have to worry about it in the store. Come and see us if you have time." He said, thinking of one thing, "Prince Kǎiya has been picked up by Emperor Klai’s people."
Su Ling raised his eyebrows, "That's good."
He didn't want to argue with Kǎiya anymore. Judging from Kǎiya's father’s attitude, he shouldn't be planning to take away the 3 spiritual plants. After hanging up the call, Su Ling thought for a while and went to the spiritual plant room. He asked Flower Bud Grass for 2 flower buds each and soaked them in the diluted vine liquid.
It’s the school opening day in a blink of an eye.
Su Ling is very calm. After all, it's not the first time he goes to university, and he doesn't live there, so there is nothing to prepare. Gu Liheng personally drove him to the school. The speed car he drove is the same as the model he gave him when he proposed, but it is black in color.
Su Ling already knows how to drive, but he has no experience on the road. There’s no need for him to drive whenever he goes out. When he arrived at the school, Gu Liheng got off the car with him. That amused Su Ling and he said, "I can handle the procedures myself."
Gu Liheng held his hand, "I will accompany you."
Thinking that Gu Liheng is still on vacation, Su Ling didn't insist. He looked around as he walked and found that the new students are basically accompanied by someone, and they are mostly elders. He and Gu Liheng attracted a lot of attention and are quickly recognized. Their expressions are natural, however, and they are not affected by the staring.
Su Ling followed Gu Liheng and quickly completed the admission procedures. Gu Liheng led him and took him around the school.
"Why are you so familiar with the school?" Su Ling held Gu Liheng’s hand. "Are you my senior?"
"No," Gu Liheng said, "I graduated from Imperial University. It’s just that the Gu family has shares in Saint Rose university."
Su Ling: "...I feel like I am married to a ‘golden mountain’."
A smile flashed in Gu Liheng's eyes, and the corners of his mouth curled slightly, "If you like it, I will get a gold mine under your name."
"Don't!" Su Ling waved his hand. He never thought he was poor before. Even back on Earth, he was considered a rich man. For the first time, he deeply felt the gap between rich and poor. He laughed again after a while, and poked Gu Liheng's arm, "Then you should not work too hard, since you are not short of money."
Gu Liheng's eyes were gentle as he replied, "Okay."
Wandering around the school, Gu Liheng reminded for the last time before leaving, "Eat lunch at school. Make sure to get a balanced combination of meat and vegetables, not just eating meat."
Su Ling felt a little embarrassed, it’s like he is a kindergarten kid being reminded by his parents. He replied, "I will. Don't worry, I am an adult."
Gu Liheng's mouth curled up, his fingers lightly stroked Su Ling’s ear, "Contact me if you need something."
Su Ling nodded.
Gu Liheng returned to the car and connected the principal's call.
The principal quickly said, "President Gu, someone saw you at school. Have you changed your mind and decided to attend the opening ceremony? It's great, I have already written the speech..."
"Not attending." Gu Liheng said.
Principal: "Since you already here, having you for the opening ceremony will definitely make a warmer atmosphere."
"I have already left," Gu Liheng explained and reminded, "Don't let other people know about the Gu family having shares in the school."
The principal was stunned, "Is it for the young madam?"
Hearing that, Gu Liheng's eyes turned soft and he said, "Don't disturb him."
As a person with similar experience, Gu Liheng knows very well that an identity that is too special can easily cause one to be isolated in school. He hopes that his young man can lead a normal university life. Saint Rose is a private aristocratic school, and the fact that the young man is his partner won’t have much influence.
The principal said immediately, "Alright, I understand."

 Imagine Uncle Long as a human. He will calmly and steadily slap Giant Bear as he repeated, “So you like to play with fire, huh? Playing with fire, huh? HUH?” C A L M L Y
