6 Cats Rush to Raise Me - Chapter 15
Zu: Surprise, surprise! Another chapter for the week!
there might also be another chapter after this one, hohohoho
Officer Zhu, who was formidable and robust like a small mountain, dropped down from the sky amidst enthusiastic calls.
It was as if he was an iron hammer of justice, smashing a deep pit into the ground upon impact. Without any delay, he rolled over with Kang Lai Yin held tightly in his embrace.
Normally, Kang Lai Yin would’ve dodged it easily, but it happened when he was transforming halfway, he didn’t manage to catch a breath and dropped down on the spot, the whimper ‘meow’ got cut-off in the beginning, leaving the sound broken at the end.
Officer Zhu looked up at the sky and let out a pig shout, he held the man down for a tongue-lashing.
“Wild! Who told you to be so reckless?You don’t learn anything good, yet you learn from Spider-man! Do you know how dangerous it is! You could corrupt children! And influence the city! Eh? You’re still fuming with anger? What are you fuming about? What’s the matter? You are quite annoyed huh? Turn around!! See if I will fix you-……..”
Officer Zhu was incomparable brave and fierce, taking the evolved species by the back of its collar and yanking him up, his gaze sweep past the dazed looking Kang Xing Luo who was standing on the side, Officer Zhu didn’t have time to figure out why does he would look familiar, at the next moment, he coincidentally met with Kang Lai Yin’s ashen face.
Kang Lai Yin, “……”
Officer Zhu, “…..”
After two seconds of silence, Officer Zhu let go of his grip and took two steps back, his voice trembling, “Fate, wonderful, too wonderful for words.”
Afterwards, the ‘too wonderful for words’ godfather got arrested by Officer Zhu whose legs went soft for the criminal charge of COSPLAY, he was surrounded before he left, unexpectedly Kang Lai Yin was speechless and choking.
“Wait for me to come out, then…..”
Kang Xing Luo hastily raised his hands to stop him, “Don’t talk.”
Kang Lai Yin, “…….”
Kang Xing Luo, “It’s all FLAG”
(T/N: flag means an ominous sign. 立flag means one cannot achieve what he said.)
The situation turned around in a blink of an eye, it went through significant ups and downs.
Kang Xing Luo and the man were abruptly reunited and separated, wobbling his way down the stairs, below the stairs there was a crowd of people who came here to enjoy the bustling scene. Since the circumstances where helicopters were used to dispatch troops were rare, the amount of people who came here to join in the fun were not few.
Kang Xing Luo looked at the man who was completely surrounded went into the police car., hesitated for a moment, he still couldn’t endure the urge and stepped forward,
Fearing the arrest of Nation’s Godfather would leak out, Kang Xing Luo was immediately blocked by the surrounding police officer.
Kang Xing Luo, “Can you tell me his name?”
It would be odd if he was able to say, then the police officer waved to get him to retreat a few steps, a group of people got into a police car, followed by the helicopter whirling in the air.
Kang Xing Luo was a little distracted, when he suddenly heard someone shouting behind him, “Kang Xing Luo!! Doofus!!! My Luo!!!”
There was only one person who would call him that, Kang Xing Luo turned back at once, as expected it was Li Hong Ming who was standing not far away, smiling from ear to ear.
Old friends who had not seen each other for two years, Kang Xing Luo couldn’t help but be a little excited, they both hugged. Afterwards, Li Hong Ming raised his hand and made a few gestures frantically at Kang Xing Luo.
There was a special way of exchange between the boys, between Kang Xing Luo and Li Hong Ming was a high-five gesture, it was a pity that Kang Xing Luo lacked strength and his hands weren’t flexible enough which led to two gestures that were done incorrectly continuously, lastly, the high-five was half a beat too slow.
Li Hong Ming was astonished, “Doofus, haven’t seen you for two years, so hardcore?”
Kang Xing Luo was helpless, “I wish.”
His voice sounded odd, hands and limbs were stiff, even wearing a set of patient’s clothes, Li Hong Ming sized him up, “What’s the matter? You’re sick?”
Kang Xing Luo, “It’s difficult to explain in one sentence.”
Since it was hard to explain in a few words, then let’s not talk about it first, Li Hong Ming stopped Kang Xing Luo and said brightly, “Go, go, go, let’s go home first.”
Kang Xing Luo, “Okay.”
As the two started to leave, all of a sudden, there was a sharp shrill cat cry from the building, the sound of wailing as if someone cruelly stepped on its tail.
Kang Xing Luo couldn’t help but turn back to take a quick look, he wasn’t sure how distinct the sound was.
Li Hong Ming was not in the least concerned, “There’s no need to care, it might just be an evolutionary species in the hotel room throwing a tantrum, I told you that it’s not good to raise cats, you didn’t believe in the past.”
Hearing the term ‘evolutionary species’ again, Kang Xing Luo finally had the chance to ask, “What’s an evolutionary species?”
How could anyone not know what an evolutionary species was. Li Hong Ming jokingly said, “What do you think it is, it’s an ancestor.”
Having said that, Li Hong Ming helped him open the door, “Get in the car.”
Had not seen each other for two years, Li Hong Ming hardly changed. His temperament had not yet matured and the feeling he gave off was the same. If one must say that there was something different, then it was just that his hair had grown longer, and the car he was using went from luxury sports car to a Beijing Hyundai.
This was odd, Kang Xing Luo had never seen Li Hong Ming this low-key before.
The car drove for half an hour before reaching the destination, the location was not Li Hong Ming’s former long-term resident villa, rather it was a normal neighbourhood.
Following Li Hong Ming in the house, Kang Xing Luo couldn’t help but be distracted by the fifty-square cottage, this living condition for the ordinary person who lived alone wasn’t bad; however, to the Li Hong Ming, this second rich generation, was truly inconceivable.
“You live here?’
Li Hong Ming frowned and smiled, bitter and yet helpless, “Yeah.”
What happened? Kang Xing Luo was bemused, “Your family went bankrupt?”
Li Hong Ming refuted, “What are you saying, how could my family go bankrupt? For every one day that the real estate market prices doesn’t collapse, the Li family will keep standing.”
“Then you, this is?”
Li Hong Ming scratched his head, feeling a tad bit embarrassed, “……My house didn’t go bankrupt, I’m broke.”
Kang Xing Luo responded, “You finally got kicked out of the house?”
Li Hong Ming gagged, “What do you mean ‘finally’……How could I be kicked out of the house? I’m the only child!”
Kang Xing Luo didn’t want to go on with his nonsense, and asked him directly, “What’s going on?”
Hearing his brother who he hadn’t seen for a long time patiently questioning him, Li Hong Ming didn’t intend to conceal it, “All the estate in my hands are all gone, my assets are zeroed out. I don’t dare to tell my family, my other friends also don’t know about this either……”
“Your business failed?”
“How can I do business, I……” said Li Hong Ming and paused, not knowing what came to mind, Li Hong Ming became irritated all of the sudden, he looked furious, then after calming down, he said, “I’ll be honest with you, I’ve been played by Bai Lai.”
“You know how I am. I dislike having to manage things. And it just so happened that Bai Lai is smart and obedient towards me, so when he said that he wanted to help me manage the business, I thought oh that’s quite nice, I don’t have to worry that much, and so I just handed everything to him. Who would have known that, as he managed my money, everything became his, and he kicked me away after he had his hands on my money.”
“At that time when I hired Bai Lai, I repeatedly reassured my family that it would be fine, because of that I even fought with the old man and the fight turned quite bad. And now something has happened, how can I have face to tell my family? Don’t have money at hand, so can only make do with this…….”
Hearing this situation did make one feel indignant at the injustice, however Kang Xing Luo’s focus was entirely misplaced, “Who is Bai Lai?”
Li Hong Ming was dumbfounded and asked rhetorically, “Who is Bai Lai, who do you think it is? It’s Li Lai, you don’t know who he is? I brought you to meet him before and you even told me to raise him properly, Ai, I get furious at the mention of him, what was the point of raising this, white-eyed wolf?!”
(T/N: White-eyed wolf; 白眼狼[bái yǎn láng] ungrateful and vicious person)
Li Hong Ming was angered to death, on Kang Xing Luo’s side, he was confused, indeed he did know of the name Bai Lai. It was the pet Li Hong Ming wanted to raise to act like a pretentious prick, but wasn’t that……
Kang Xing Luo asked doubtfully, “Isn’t Bai Lai a ferret?”
Li Hong Ming’s expression froze, he stared at Kang Xing Luo for a moment before asking, “Doofus, are you retarded?”
Kang Xing Luo, “…..”
Kang Xing Luo, “I was in a car accident and seemed to be in a coma for two years.”
Kang Xing Luo’s expression didn’t look like he was joking, Li Hong Ming was flabbergasted for a while, then he instantly knew of Kang Xing Luo’s current circumstance, “You were in the hospital for these past two years?”
Kang Xing Luo, “Maybe.”
It dawned on Li Hong Ming, “No wonder, No wonder you suddenly disappeared, couldn’t contact you whatsoever, I searched everywhere for you but there was no news. Right, how’s your body now?”
Kang Xing Luo, “Should be fine.”
Li Hong Ming looked at him for a while and sighed, “It is good as long as you are fine, but…….if you slept for a whole two years, then you sure missed out on quite a few things.”
Doofus is about to make up on all the homework.
