6 Cats Rush to Raise Me - Chapter 20
Originally, he wasn’t tired, but by the end of the examination, he was exhausted from long periods of going back and forth for the examinations. Kang Xing Luo returned to the ward to rest, and it was not long after that the doctor came in with the results to explain and went over matters that needed attention.
“There’s no major problem with your body. However, it’s better not to be discharged for the time being. I Will formulate physical therapy and speech therapy plans for you. You don’t have to worry about anything else, just exercise diligently and your body will return to its former condition. There also won’t be any hindrance when you talk; you’ll be able to talk and walk like a normal person would.”
Kang Xing Luo nodded. After he gave his words to the doctor, he couldn’t help but look around for Kang Lai Yin’s figure. Not knowing why Li Hong Ming was the only one accompanying him inside the ward, so after sending the doctor out, Kang Xing Luo finally couldn’t help but asked, “Where is he?”
Seeing Li Hong Ming’s ‘not wanting to talk’ expression, Kang Xing Luo repeated his question, “Where’s Xiao Shizi?”
Li Hong Ming, “I don’t know, he was called away by his secretary. Maybe it’s something about his business, he should be back after he’s done with it.”
After he finished speaking, he sized up Kang Xing Luo and said, “I didn’t expect the Nation’s Godfather… is that Xiao Shizi.”
Kang Xing Luo also felt the same way. He was about to say a few more words, however, after noticing Li Hong Ming having a strange expression on his face, he changed the topic. “What happened?”
Li Hong Ming had a pained expression on his face, he couldn’t utter a single word. He had bitterness that he couldn’t share (grievances that he couldn’t voice). Even though he grumbled for half a day, he still wasn’t able to squeeze out the reason why he felt this way.
T-th-thi-this … couldn’t be said, ah!
It was fine that he was kicked out by his own pet, but even his friend’s house pet hated him, was he that poisonous?!
After he composed himself, Li Hong Ming said, “Oh yeah, how did you know that Xiao Shizi, Kang Lai Yin was at the police station? Wait, no, it should be why was Kang Lai Yin at the police station?”
Kang Xing Luo could not answer, since he himself did not know much about it. Li Hong Ming suddenly covered his ears and said with a trace of bitterness in his voice, “Don’t … don’t … don’t say it! It’s better to just not tell me about it! If I were to know about it … I’ll be terrified of having new hatred stacked ontop with the old grudge. I wouldn’t know how the hell I died.”
Kang Xing Luo, “….”
Kang Xing Luo’s health was temporarily stable. During his hospitalization, Kang Xing Luo had nothing else to do. He wanted to see Xiao Shizi, however the waiting time was always particularly long.
Li Hong Ming, “Why don’t I go and get some books for you to read? The nurse even asked me earlier if I wanted them.”
Since he was bored to death, Kang Xing Luo answered, “Okay.”
He originally wanted to just use it to pass the time, and he was also still a little worried about not being able to understand modern day literature in this era. However, he didn’t expect the book that was brought over was easy to understand, and the title was extremely interesting.
——《 Me and My Five Homies Who Live with Me.》
Li Hong Ming, “This book was last year’s best seller. The author is especially popular, I heard the author is even an evolutionary species. However, I dislike reading books, so I don’t really know much about these books. You try reading it and see how it goes. If you don’t like it, then change it to another one.”
Compared to watching television, Kang Xing Luo personally preferred reading paperback books, he answered and wanted to pass his time by reading. He didn’t expect this book to be interesting. It was obviously just a slice of life novel. However, it was a lot more interesting compared to those imperial-harem intrigues plays. The more he continued to read the book, the more fascinated he became.
Night soon fell, and Kang Xing Luo, who flipped to the last page of the book, cried out, “……There’s no more?”
Li Hong Ming was even more baffled, “You finished reading it?”
Kang Xing Luo, “Is there a second volume to this book?”
Li Hong Ming, “I don’t think so, ah? Is this book that good to read? What is it about?” Li Hong Ming opened the book curiously and flipped through it, but he soon put it down. He was naturally insensitive towards written words; his brain would hurt everytime he looked at a book.
Kang Xing Luo summarized, “…..Cohabitation and drama?”
As he was still a tad bit uncertain. Li Hong Ming laughed, “What kind of drama is there for cohabitation?”
Kang Xing Luo faintly smiled, yet he also cared about it. His memory stopped at the time before the accident happened, when he was still job hunting. To him, it had been a long time since he last read a book, and now that he had finished reading this book, there was a distinct feeling of astonishment in his mind.
As a result, he easily became a fan of the author, and was inevitably curious about the author’s appearance.
Flipping to the author’s biography page. The author did not have a picture as their profile picture, instead it was a picture of a comical tiny mustache with a red background. The following introduction only had one sentence written there;
——The author isn’t fat, and is also very handsome.
He looked at the pen name again, it was exactly the word ‘handsome’.
Kang Xing Luo chuckled all of a sudden and asked, “Does this author have any other books?”
Li Hong Ming, “I think so, he should have published loads of books.”
Kang Xing Luo, “Does the nurse have them?”
Li Hong Ming, “She probably doesn’t have them. If you’d like, I can go buy them for you tomorrow.”
It was already late, so even if there were other books, he still couldn’t continue reading them. Kang Xing Luo reluctantly snapped out of his reverie and asked, “He hasn’t come yet?”
The ‘he’ Kang Xing Luo was referring to was Xiao Shizi. Li Hong Ming shook his head.
He couldn’t wait for the person he was waiting for as drowsiness slowly overcame him. Kang Xing Luo laid down on the bed, while Li Hong Ming leaned back on the chair.
Kang Xing Luo, “Aren’t you going back home?”
Li Hong Ming, “No, even if I went back home I will be alone. So might as well stay by your side, at least this way I’ll have you to accompany me.”
These words might sound sad at first, however, after thinking about it carefully his voice was full of concern. Kang Xing Luo smiled, closed his eyes and fell asleep.
It was already midnight by the time he woke up. The room was pitch black, he didn’t know when Li Hong Ming turned off the lights.
Xing Luo trembled when he felt someone touching his face and immediately opened his eyes.
There was a robust figure standing motionless in front of his bed. Caught off guard and frightened by the dark shadow, Kang Xing Luo turned on his phone’s light by reflex. Shaken by the unexpected pair of green glowing eyes on the shadow’s face, Kang Xing Luo couldn’t help but turn his head aside.
How are these eyes…..
They are practically laser beams.
A man’s voice rang in the air, “Are you okay?”
Kang Xing Luo answered, “Y-Yeah I’m okay, you’re here.”
How could he not know who it was after hearing his voice? But the weird thing was, he was clearly waiting for Xiao Shizi, however, now that Kang Lai Yin was actually here, Kang Xing Luo instead felt uneasy and extremely uncomfortable.
Kang Lai Yin, “Let me go up.”
Up? Up where? Kang Xing Luo still didn’t understand the meaning of it, but he had already agreed, “Okay, okay.”
It had nothing to do with the reason that he was thinking about — of doting his cat. Kang Xing Luo felt as if he was just unable to reject the man’s request.
Kang Lai Yin placed a hand on the hospital bed, and Kang Xing Luo hastily moved his body to the side leaving an empty space for him. However, Kang Lai Yin did not actually climb up the bed right away.
Then, a ‘rustling’ sound vibrated through the air.
Kang Xing Luo had no idea what could make that sound, only after 5 or 6 seconds did he let out a gasp of surprise.
Kang Lai Yin caught Kang Xing Luo’s hand when he extended his hand out. The man pulled his hand forwards, and Xing Luo felt something warm against the palm of his hands.
…… Sure enough.
Kang Lai Yin was undressing!!
Kang Xing Luo did not know which part of the man’s body he was touching, since his vision was enveloped in darkness. Nevertheless, the palm of his hand was gradually heating up.
The sound of clothes falling to the ground continued incessantly until a while later, the man lifted the quilt and his whole body crawled in.
