Mu Chongyan no longer bothered Lu Kun and hurried towards the house. Before he could even take a step through the door, a creak sounded and Bai Rong stood at the door with an anxious face which turned into joy upon catching sight of him, “Chongyan?!”
“En….I’m back.” Mu Chongyan quickly entered and Lu Kun closed the door behind him, “You haven’t gone to bed?”
“No.” Bai Rong held Mu Chongyan’s hand and looked up and down at him. After making sure that nothing had happened to him, he finally felt at ease and said, “Chongyan, have you changed your clothes?”
“Yeah…there was some blood stain on it so I went ahead and got changed.” Mu Chongyan washed his hands with a little water and dried them before sitting on the laid bedding. He then pulled off Bai Rong who followed him like his tail and pinched his face, asking in amusement, “What are you trying to do by following me everywhere, do you want to sleep with me?”
“Wh…Why would I!!” Bai Rong’s face turned into a shade of red, and he stood up in embarrassment, “I…I’m going back to sleep!”
How could he sleep with his wife when they had yet to get married? He was not an irresponsible man!!
Moreover…moreover…the environment here wasn’t suitable either.
Kuku looked at his elder brother’s steaming face and gritted his teeth. He hurriedly pulled him over and pushed him down on the bed. “Brother, we still have to get up early tomorrow to go to the safe zone. If you don’t sleep now, you won’t be able to get up!”

The safe zone was about three hours away from the gray zone. After the group of people handed in the required amount of ash coins, it was already noon.
The safe zone was like a city covered with a transparent glass cover, but the cover was very high up, far away and very thin. Bai Rong’s eyes grew wide as he raised his head and looked up but found that he couldn’t see anything.
“Brother Bai Rong, where are you going?” Lu Ya swept a look around happily as soon as he entered the safe zone. The excitement about to sprung forth from his body, “My brother and I are going to find a house first. What about you guys?”
“We’re also going to find a house first.” Bai Rong squeezed the small purse in his hand, his face forlorn. After the admission fee and the first day’s staying fee in the city were deducted, he only had 19 ash coins left. How poor…
“That’s great, let’s go to the housing management office together. The houses there can be sold or rented, and the efficiency is very high.” Lu Ya tugged at Lu Kun’s sleeve, “Brother, lead the way, I don’t remember the way there anymore.”
“…Behave yourself.” Lu Kun patted Lu Ya on the shoulder and said to the others, “Let’s go, it’s almost two hours away from here.”
“En. Thank you.” Mu Chongyan nodded and took out a few nutrient supplements from his belongings, distributing them to the few people, “It’s too late to get lunch, drink this first.”
Bai Rong pulled the stopper and took a sip. His eyes widened slightly upon realizing that this nutrient was different from the previous one, it was actually peach-flavored!
Bai Rong raised his head to look at Mu Chongyan, and was just about to ask something, but saw Mu Chongyan blink lightly, indicating that the one given to him was naturally different from the one he had given to others.
Unable to help but feel his heart irresistibly turn sweet like the taste of peaches seeping into his heart from his mouth, Bai Rong’s eyes curved and he returned Mu Chongyan a sweet smile before sipping the nutrient dose again. After taking a sip, the corners of his soft lips curled up, and even the small dimples on his cheeks were filled with the sweetness of the fruit.
As expected, his Chongyan was the best!
…..An hour later, the group of people arrived at the housing management office, and the staff at the management office roughly introduced three ways to rent a house.
The first was to settle on a weekly settlement- this settlement method could only allow them to rent some simple and narrow houses. The rent for a week was generally about three ash coins. Mu Chongyan swept a glance and saw that the geographical location was in the most remote and dirty area and decisively gave up on this approach.
The second was on a monthly settlement- this settlement method could allow them to rent most houses, and the price range was quite large. Mu Chongyan and Bai Rong discussed for a while before deciding to choose this settlement method. They then quickly took a fancy to a small bungalow in an ordinary area and the bungalow had three bedrooms, one living room, one kitchen and one bathroom. There were water pipes in the kitchen and bathroom, and a well in the yard. The price was fifty-two ash coins a month.
Fifty-two ash coins a month…
Bai Rong’s face turned bitter and he sighed while holding the purse in his hand. It was so expensive that they couldn’t even afford to pay half of it.
Seeing that the customer wanted to buy it and thought it was too expensive, the staff quickly said, “Mister, don’t think that this house is expensive, it’s actually very cost-effective. The wells here have gone through purification. Although you can’t drink the water from it, you can still use it to wash clothes. This way, you’ll be able to save up a lot of water bills which could be advantageous to you.”
Bai Rong smiled helplessly. He also felt that it was very indeed very advantageous, but he didn’t have enough money!
“If you don’t mind, perhaps we can rent together…” Lu Kun on the side suddenly spoke up, looking at Bai Rong and saying, “We still have thirty ash coins here, which should be enough.”
“I don’t mind!” Bai Rong’s eyes lit up, then he turned to look at Mu Chongyan and Kuku and asked, “Chongyan, Kuku, what do you think?”
“I don’t mind.” Kuku shook his head.
Mu Chongyan smiled and looked at Lu Kun, “Thank you, we will return it to you as soon as possible.”
“It’s okay, you’re too polite.” Lu Kun directly took out 33 ash coins and handed them to Bai Rong.
It was not that he didn’t have an ulterior goal. If they lived together under the same roof, their safety was bound to be higher and no amount of ash coins could buy this sense of security.
Lu Ya was so happy that he was about to take off. To be able to live with his idol again was such a fortunate matter!
Even if he was abused daily by the loving sight of his idol and Big Brother Mu, he wouldn’t mind it at all!!!
After paying the money, the group of people handed over the ID cards that were processed at the entrance of the security zone to the staff for registration. Then within five minutes, two keys were handed over.
One was handed to Lu Kun whereas Mu Chongyan picked up the other and handed it to Bai Rong. In any case, he was worried about letting Little Sweet Cake go out alone so it didn’t matter whether he had the key or not.
The group of people took the keys and left the housing management office. The house was quite far away from the housing management office, taking them more than two hours to get there.
After arriving at their destination, Lu Ya plunged onto the sofa as soon as he entered, a big smile plastered on his face.
“There are three rooms in total, one for the three of you.” Mu Chongyan looked at Bai Rong, Kuku and Lu Ya, and then asked Lu Kun, “What do you think?”
“Sure.” Lu Kun sat casually on the sofa, the two long sofas in this living room were quite large, and were both foldable. When they laid flat, they would be turned into two beds, allowing both of them to be able to sleep on it.
“No!” Bai Rong clenched his fists with both hands and decisively opposed, “I can sleep here, Chongyan, you sleep in the bedroom!”
As a tough man, how could he let his wife sleep in the living room?!
“I can’t sleep in the bedroom.” Mu Chongyan smiled and rubbed Bai Rong’s hair. “The bed in the bedroom is only 1.8 meters long so I can’t sleep there.”
“…” Bai Rong’s face turned stiff and he then pointed at the sofa, “The sofa isn’t more than 1.9 meters long at all!”
“It would almost reach that length after laying down the armrests, be good…If you feel bad about me, go and rest up quickly, so I don’t worry about you… ” Mu Chongyan said as he walked to the bathroom and smiled, “This bathroom isn’t bad. Who’s going to wash up first?”
“I want to wash up!” Lu Ya leapt up. Ever since he was kicked out of the safe zone, he hadn’t taken a comfortable bath so he needed the comfort of one very much right now!
“Alright, you wash up first, then everyone will line up later. After exhausting ourselves for so long, let’s all take a bath and relax.” In order to prevent Bai Rong from speaking up about giving him the bedroom, Mu Chongyan actually arranged the line-up for the bath, putting in quite a bit of effort to divert the topic.
The order of bathing was quickly arranged. The first one was Lu Ya, then Lu Kun, Kuku, Mu Chongyan, and the last one was Bai Rong, so after Bai Rong came out of the bath, Mu Chongyan had already flattened the sofa into a bed and laid on it firmly.
Suddenly realizing that Mu Chongyan’s unusual enthusiasm in arranging the bathing line-up was nothing but a trick, Bai Rong’s face puffed up in unhappiness. He narrowed his eyes slightly, and stood by the bed, staring motionlessly at Mu Chongyan.
The tip of Bai Rong’s hair was dripping with tiny drops of water, and his white cheeks were dyed with a layer of crimson from the steam. His black and clear black pupils were moist and translucent, as if they were covered with fine stars, and his rosy lips were parted slightly, revealing a few white teeth. A drop of water slid down the chin, leaving a shallow water trail on his white neck, until it finally dropped onto his collarbone…
Mu Chongyan’s face turned a little hot seeing this and as if he suddenly thought of something, he bounced up and took a look at Lu Kun who had his eyes closed before hurriedly turning Bai Rong around and pushed him to the bedroom, “Quickly go back to your bedroom.”
Little Sweet Cake’s appearance must not be seen by others!!!
“I’m not going back!” Bai Rong stood roguely on the spot, looking like he was going to fall down if Mu Chongyan were to push him, and he stubbornly said, “I’ll sleep in the living room!”
“No!” If he was 100% adamant before, right now, he was 10,000% opposed to this. Seeing that pushing him yielded unfruitful results, Mu Chongyan decisively carried Bai Rong on his shoulders, one hand holding his waist, and the other on behind his knees, lifting him up and walking away.
“Ah!” Feeling his body suddenly soar into the air, Bai Rong let out a surprised yelp and unconsciously grabbed onto Mu Chongyan, yet in turn, he was given a smack on the butt as Mu Chongyan uttered with utmost gentleness,”Be good and don’t move, what if you fall down?”
“Ng——!” Bai Rong’s face flushed red, and his struggling motion suddenly froze.
Mu Chongyan had actually dared to slap his bum, how dare he do that! As his wife, he had actually slapped his fiance’s bum!!!
Was Mu Chongyan not aware of his role as his wife!!!
