When he woke up the next day, Zhan Beitian was already gone from his side. Mu Yifan didn’t mind, but since Zhan Beitian had never answered his question last night, he couldn’t help but feel dejected.
Although, it was true that they’d known each other for just over half a month, how would the male lead have feelings for him that quickly? Since his attitude towards Mu Yifan became so much warmer, this was already a pretty good change.
He couldn’t be too greedy, wanting the male lead to treat him as well as Zhan Beitian did in reality. That was an impossible thing.
Mu Yifan laid on the bed for a while, then rolled over, reaching out for his phone on the bedside table to check the time. He abruptly realised that his movements were rather sluggish.
He stopped moving and looked at his hand, puzzled.
Had it been an illusion? His movements seemed less nimble than usual.
Mu Yifan continued to grab for his phone, and so his fingers became rigid. Straightening them was difficult and the moment he grasped his phone, it slipped from his palm – since he couldn’t exert force from his fingers – and fell back onto the bedside table.
He stared at this scene, shocked, and didn’t return to his senses for a long while.
“Mu Mu, are you awake?” Zhan Beitian knocked on the door, then walked in. Catching sight of Mu Yifan dazed at the bedside cabinet, he asked, confused, “What is it?”
Mu Yifan returned to his senses, “It’s…”
The ‘nothing’ that came after got stuck in his throat, and he couldn’t get it out no matter what. His voice was also extremely hoarse, just like he’d caught a heavy cold, and the tone had shifted into something deeper and rougher.
In his heart, Mu Yifan was terrified.
This was a sign that he was on the verge of becoming a zombie, and showed that he would soon become a zombie that was completely without consciousness.
Zhan Beitian didn’t notice anything wrong with his voice. After just waking up, everyone’s voice would be a little hoarse, it was very normal.
“Go downstairs and eat breakfast.”
After saying this, he left the room.
Mu Yifan sat up, rejoicing at the fact that his body was unchanged and hadn’t become rigid. Although, it soon would be.
He sat on the bed for a bit, then got up to wash up in the bathroom. When he went downstairs to eat and caught sight of the chopsticks and spoon set on the table, he hesitated for a moment before taking the spoon and having his porridge. Thankfully, his fingers could still exert some energy at this important time, and didn’t let the spoon drop.
Zhan Beitian found that Mu Yifan was too quiet today, and felt something was off. He didn’t ask though, only saying, “I’m going out after breakfast, do you want to come with me?”
Mu Yifan had just said that one word, but the ‘just won’t go this time’ was stuck in his throat. He couldn’t say it out loud.
He wanted to shake his head in order to show that he didn’t want to go, but he was also worried that Zhan Beitian would notice something was wrong. In the end, he could only agree, “Alright.”
The two people finished their breakfast and drove out of the villa district.
The moment Mu Yifan got onto the car, he pretended to sleep. Besides, he slept a lot recently, so it wasn’t that strange anymore. Everything will be fine as long as the male lead doesn’t notice anything strange.
