Bai Rong’s complexion remained very well until he was taken into Mu Chongyan’s hand, because as soon as he sat atop of Mu Chongyan’s gentle palm, Bai Rong’s heart jumped again. Upon realizing this, he felt extremely disappointed.
However, it was much better than what had happened in the morning, because at the very least, his face was not the shade of tomato red anymore.
“Are you hungry?” Mu Chongyan gently rubbed the top of Bai Rong’s hair, and said softly: “I bought some sleeping aids at Dizhi today. You looked very tired last night. Was it because you haven’t been having a good rest lately?”
“…… Yeah, that might be the reason.” Having not expected that Mu Chongyan would be this considerate and attentive, Bai Rong’s heart felt sweet and warm, the vestiges of unease and cautiousness left in his heart quickly dissipating.
“Then, eat more later on.” Mu Chongyan walked to the dining table, and gently placed Bai Rong on the dining table. Then, he took out the food from the spatial button.
Bai Rong cleverly nodded his little head and said, “Okay…”
“Good…” Mu Chongyan took out Bai Rong’s small tableware to serve his food, and said: “If you like these meals, I will buy you more of it next time.”
As Mu Chongyan spoke, he suddenly remembered something and paused for a while, but soon immediately, he shook his head slightly, and continued to feed Bai Rong with a smile on his face.

“……Yes, I wanted to tell you that I have decided to modify my physical data. On the morning of the 14th, I will be competing in the finals and I intend to have my physical data modified once the competition has finished.”
After a pause, a reply was sent back, “Alright, no problem. I will arrange for a hacker to modify it for you the day after tomorrow. In addition, Mr. Mu can take a nap in advance. I will come over at 11 o’clock to pick up Mr. Mu and head to the auction together.”
“Okay, thank you for the reminder, Mr. Mu.” Bai Rong rubbed his eyes, feeling a bit sleepy.
After closing the message window, Bai Rong went to the card making room opposite his, and decided to make three or four intermediate spell cards for training. But by the time he started making the second card, his eyelids felt very heavy.
After reluctantly finishing the second card, Bai Rong put away the spell card, hurriedly returned to the bedroom, and plunged into his quilt.
Bai Rong who was in front of the optical computer, also fell head first into the quilt behind him, without even removing the virtual connector on his temple.
The last words that came to Bai Rong’s mind before he fell into dreamland was… “I have to say, this meal that Mu Chongyan bought… was quite effective… …”
By the time Mu Chongyan returned to the villa, it was already eleven o’clock, but contrary to his expectations, he did not see Mu Nan waiting at the first floor of the villa.
Assuming that he was running late, Mu Chongyan waited patiently for a few minutes, but he hadn’t seen anyone even until 11:08. Mu Chongyan frowned slightly at this. Opening the contact window on his wristwatch, he sent a message over to him.
However, even after a minute had passed, Mu Nan still did not reply. A hint of displeasure flashed across Mu Chongyan’s eyes. Seeing that Mu Nan’s contact window was online, he simply stood up and walked to the second floor, ready to look for his figure in the card making room.
When he reached the innermost part of the second floor, Mu Chongyan found that the card making room door was closed, but opposite the card making room, Mu Nan’s bedroom door was ajar.
Mu Chongyan stood at the door for a moment before ultimately opening the door gently.
Then… he saw Mu Nan sleeping extremely heavily on the bed.
A vein on Mu Chongyan’s forehead popped out but he still tried to suppress the dissatisfaction in his heart down. Walking to the bedside, he called out.
Yet the person in bed did not wake up.
Mu Chongyan felt even more unhappy. As such, he simply stretched out a hand and shook the person.
“…Mm…” Feeling the senses in the virtual city transmit to his real body. Bai Rong frowned slightly and groaned before slowly parting his eyes. He was having such a good sleep, who was crudely shaking him, how anno-…Huh? It’s Chongyan?
Bai Rong’s eyes widened for a moment, and before he smiled in a daze, muttering vaguely, “Chongyan…Don’t…” But in the next moment, Bai Rong promptly swallowed the next words back, cutting his words short abruptly.
His whole person suddenly sobered up completely!!
God, what did he just say!!!
Seeing Mu Nan wake up in a daze, and then mumble “Chongyan……don’t……”, The look in Mu Chongyan’s eyes suddenly changed.
Chongyan……? What Chongyan?!!
Feeling a gaze fall on his body, Bai Rong gritted his teeth, and did not dare open his eyes. His heart was akin to an ant on a hot pan, almost getting scorched!
What was he going to do? Had he been exposed?!!!
How can he turn this around!!!!!
“What Chongyan?” Mu Chongyan promptly shook Bai Rong again, and inquired in a deep voice.
“…Mr. Wei, what are you talking about …?” Bai Rong quickly thought of a plan in his heart, pretending to have just awoken. He rubbed his eyes, asking: “What are you talking about?”
“Mr. Mu just said the words ‘Chongyan’, what does it mean?” The coldness on Mu Chongyan’s face had already disappeared, and his whole aura seemed to have softened up a bit, but Bai Rong could somehow sense an intent to deceive from Mu Chongyan’s expression.
“Ah?” Bai Rong pretended to be surprised, “Did I say the words Chongyan?”
“Yeah.” Mu Chongyan’s face remained as stoic usual as he said calmly: “Could it be that…Mr. Mu is also a fan of Mu Chongyan?”
“Hahahaha, I’m not. Even though I admire him, I am not a fan.” Bai Rong scratched his head and smiled ‘sincerely’, “But since you just said that I uttered the words Chongyan, it might be because…I’ve recently been reciting he poetry culture of ancient earth.”
Mu Chongyan’s voice lowered slightly: “Oh? Poetry culture?”
“Yeah, there is no neighborhood without a village, and the water cloud covers the stone gates.” Bai Rong gulped, the hands he had under the quilt trembled slightly from nervousness but his face maintained a calm look, “I was referring to ‘cover’ when I said Chongyan…”1 重掩 Cover is pronounced as Chongyan as well.
“There is no neighborhood without a village, and the water cloud covers the stone gates?” Mu Chongyan narrowed his eyes and smiled extremely lightly: “This culture…is very interesting.”
“Yes. It is without a doubt interesting!” Bai Rong nodded strongly, “I’ve been reciting it like mad as if I’ve become entranced, that’s why I’ve also been reciting it in my dreams!”
