The piano ghost looked at Bai Ruan coweringly.
He wasn’t an evil ghost, he was just a high school student who was obsessed with the piano. After the sun set, he played the piano in the music classroom. There was not much harm done. It was only because Shen Jia Han had a deep psychological shadow from the strange talk of the music classroom from elementary school onwards that he turned into such a ghost. He couldn’t fight, nor could he escape, so he reluctantly stumbled into the formation.
The piano ghost asked quietly, “Can’t you be gentler?”
“Can. Don’t be so nervous. It doesn’t hurt or feel uncomfortable at all.” Bai Ruan continued softly, “bear with it for a few seconds.”
The piano ghost rubbed the corners of his clothes in the formation. Bai Ruan suddenly felt as if he were bullying an honest person, but the Yin body had negative energy. Even if his heart wasn’t evil, staying somewhere would cause Feng Shui disorder in the place. There were many undesirable effects on the living, and it would irresponsibly affect the students in the second middle school without any exception.
Bai Ruan activated the formation. The silver light diffused and the demon-like air swallowed the ghost into the formation.
After a few seconds, it was over. There was no conflict between the transcendencer and the ghost. It was simply a textbook-like harmony transcendence, a civilised enforcement of the law.
“Hu…” Bai Ruan sighed, leaned over and picked up the eight used purity talismans.
“It’s over?” Lang Jing Feng asked.
“En, it’s over.” Bai Ruan turned and went to the corner of the classroom to fetch the mop. “You hurry up and go eat.”
Lang Jing Feng took out the wet wipes, squatted down and removed the white chalk drawing on the ground, and said, “Just rest, I’ll wipe it.”
Bai Ruan still wanted to insist, but there was another burst of acid water in his stomach, and he subconsciously protected his stomach and walked to the first row to sit down, stroking his chest comfortably.
“Teacher Bai, what’ll you be eating tonight?” Lang Jing Feng asked.
“I brought grass.” Bai Ruan endured his nausea, “You eat your own, no need to care about me.”
Lang Jing Feng smiled and said, “I bought a few packs of alfalfa. The address was filled in as the school’s, and the recipient as you. The courier told me that it had been delivered to the mail room in the afternoon. Please remember to pick it up later when you have time.”
When Bai Ruan heard the words alfalfa, his appetite instantly came alive—alfalfa was for baby rabbits. Adult rabbits did not eat it, but pregnant rabbits were an exception. Alfalfa was a good food to consume during pregnancy, but Bai Ruan was very resistant to his fake pregnancy. Not only was his mouth stubborn in front of Lang Jing Feng, he was also a good hand at self-deception. In the past two days when he made alfalfa rice for the rabbits, he endured the rush of saliva, uncharacteristically refusing to eat a mouthful. It was as if eating alfalfa would damage his dignity as a male rabbit.
This little wolf boy must have checked online! Bai Ruan sucked in a breath and replied indifferently, “Why did you buy that? Adult rabbits don’t eat alfalfa.”
Lang Jing Feng stared at Bai Ruan with a gaze that could see through everything. Without exposing the other, he just smiled and said leisurely, “En, I bought it for those children in your family. I’ve been living in your house for two days and it isn’t appropriate to be a big brother and not prepare some gifts for them.”
Bai Ruan knew that Lang Jing Feng was only using this as an excuse to tease him, but Lang Jing Feng didn’t treat the bunnies without spiritual consciousness as rabbit meat. He seemed to treat them as equal creatures with himself in his speech and behaviour. This made Bai Ruan feel flattered.
——After all, even Yun Qing would eat braised rabbit heads behind his back, and would call his bunnies “those rabbits”… Bai Ruan wouldn’t complain about Master because of this, after all, no one except for a rabbit demon would think that an ordinary little rabbit was equal to themselves. Bai Ruan fully understood this, but this didn’t prevent him from being touched almost to tears by Lang Jing Feng’s meticulous care.
“I’m going off to eat. Teacher, remember to take the package.” The ground was wiped clean. Lang Jing Feng rolled the wet wipes and facial tissues into a ball, accurately threw them into the trash can a few metres away, and then walked out of the music classroom.
After Lang Jing Feng stepped out of the music classroom, Bai Ruan took out the plum candy from his back trousers pocket, tore the package and stuffed it into his mouth. Using the sweet and sour taste to suppress his tumultuous stomach, he slipped into the mail room like a thief to pick up the package.
He couldn’t bear it, and didn’t need to bear it anymore. Teacher Xiao Bai, who was greedy for alfalfa these past few days, held a box of freshly baked alfalfa and trotted all the way to the unmanned rooftop. Under the action of the disordered hormones, he devoured it all in one breath.
Near the end of the semester, the study tasks were tense, and the flow of time seemed to have unconsciously sped up. After the final exams in late June, the students ushered in 22 days of summer vacation, which was also the last long vacation for the second year students before their college entrance examination.
On the outskirts, Yun Zhen was in a large house surrounded by mountains and rivers.
The artificial pool on the side of the courtyard showed a deep cold colour under the noon sun. The weather this year was abnormally hot and humid. The last breeze between the sky and the earth seemed to be trapped by the sweltering heat wave, and the surface of the pool didn’t ripple due to this. It was like some kind of frozen colloid or mirror surface. But the white water lilies that were as white as fresh snow, looked even more beautiful by such a lifeless lake. It exuded the unique and demure vitality of plants.
The gates of the house were closed tightly with copper bolts inside. The flat and clean stone brick floor in the courtyard was painted with a large array occupying four-fifths of the courtyard area. Some unpainted lines were even squeezed to the other side of the artificial pool. The pigment that hadn’t dried up completely evoked a herbal aroma under the sun’s exposure. It was strong, but not unpleasant. After a long time, it would give out a sense of comfort and a refreshing feeling.
“Senior Brother, put another stroke to the southeast side.” Yun Qing sat on the rattan chair under the eaves1The part of a roof that meets or hangs over the walls of a building., enjoying the cool breeze blowing from the hall. Yun Zhen carried a bucket of special paint in his left hand and held a brush in his right. A huge brush, half the size of a person, filled in the imperfections of the formation, and strived for success.
Bai Ruan originally wanted to learn something after being exposed to the sun, but these were the last three days of his fake pregnancy. His brain was immersed in the illusion of “soon going to give birth” and faithfully performed its duty of issuing wrong instructions. Bai Ruan was dizzy after watching for a while, and his legs were sore and heavy. Lang Jing Feng, who was guarding and observing his condition every step of the way, carried him back to the shade under the eaves.
“I’m fine.” Bai Ruan wiped his sweat and wanted to slip over to see.
An expert who is a Taoist master, draws a line up online. This scene was not always available to watch.2An expert who is a Taoist master: It means a person who has the ability to understand and has already understood the laws of nature. T/N: not really sure the literal meaning but it should be towards how Yun Qing orders Yun Zhen.
“Just rest.” Lang Jing Feng’s face sank, and his tone sounded like a resentful husband. He was deeply dissatisfied because his wife who was pregnant for nine months was running wildly all over the world with his big belly. “Don’t you know that it’s inconvenient for you in this state? You’ll pass out later .”
Bai Ruan still wanted to refute. Lang Jing Feng had moved a rattan chair and placed it behind Bai Ruan. He forced Bai Ruan down onto the chair, and picked up the fan that was blowing a cooling breeze from the hall and turned it towards Bai Ruan. This movement made Yun Qing complain endlessly.
“Bear with it for another three days.” Lang Jing Feng fanned with one hand. He quickly covered Bai Ruan’s flat abdomen with the other, showing a handsome smile, “After giving birth, you’ll be fine, my wife.”
“Lang Jing Feng!” Bai Ruan grabbed the mug that Yun Qing had emptied on the side of the small coffee table, and banged on the table again. The auditory effect was almost equal to a gavel. “Are you done?”
——Lang Jing Feng teased him heavily during the month of his fake pregnancy. He even planned which major his daughter would study in university in the future. Everything was ready, and she only needed to be born.
Lang Jing Feng bit his lip and smirked. He concentrated on fanning Bai Ruan and said nothing.
Bai Ruan gritted his teeth angrily, and secretly fantasised how he would bully and repay the debt after Lang Jing Feng became a milk wolf.
Thinking about it, the corners of Bai Ruan’s lips couldn’t be restrained from rising.
“What bad things are you thinking about?” Lang Jing Feng touched Bai Ruan’s mouth, “Are you waiting for me to get smaller so that you can bully me?”
Bai Ruan smiled instantly and looked at him calmly. “How is it possible? Don’t think that everyone is like you.”
Today was the second day after the final results were released, and it was also the day that Yun Qing would use the rejuvenation technique on Lang Jing Feng to regrow his teeth.
Before the final exam, Lang Jing Feng discussed with Lang Yuan Shan and Lang Qian—if Lang Jing Feng’s class ranking at the end of the semester were improved by fifteen or more positions than the mid-term, he would get a chance to go out on his own. The time, place, and itinerary could freely be arranged by him.
Lang Jing Feng originally had a playful temperament, so his parents were not surprised that he would make such a request. Moreover, Lang Qian didn’t think that Lang Jing Feng could increase his ranking by fifteen positions all in one go. Although Lang Jing Feng had a look of reformation ever since he transferred to the second middle school and Teacher Xiao Bai never hesitated to praise Lang Jing Feng’s test papers, Lang Qian still knew what her son had always been like. She had been disappointed for such a long time, how could she dare to expect too much? —Therefore she agreed very quickly.
After the results were out, Lang Jing Feng’s position increased by 16 places compared to the midterms, and he passed the tests.
About half of the students in this country had been encouraged by “In fact, you are very bright, but you just didn’t work hard enough.” However, Lang Jing Feng really was smart, but didn’t work hard at all. So after doing his best for more than two months, his progress was very significant.
Lang Qian looked at her son’s transcript, which was not the first from the back, and was almost moved to tears.
She originally wanted to invite Bai Ruan out to properly give her appreciation to this miraculous teacher, but Bai Ruan was firm and refused in every possible way. Lang Qian had no choice but to give up on the surface. However, in her heart she was thinking about finding a chance to visit his home another day and present a big gift to Bai Ruan to show her sincerity.
After the results were released, Lang Jing Feng didn’t delay for a single day. He packed his luggage and bought a high-speed rail ticket and then sneaked up to find Bai Ruan. Just the thought of being able to live with Bai Ruan for half a month, Lang Jing Feng became restless and wanted to find something to bite.
“Senior brother, it’s alright.” Seeing that the big formation was complete, Yun Qing sat on the rattan chair, requested Yun Zhen to stop, and immediately pointed his finger at Lang Jing Feng, “Young wolf, pack up and prepare for restoration… Wait for this teacher to finish. You’ll be just a few years older than your daughter.”
