Once Xiang Han fell asleep, Lu Ze squeezed into the bed and gently pulled the other person into his arms, ready to sleep together. At this time, the 'Husky' sent a few more messages. Lu Ze inadvertently saw it, and then... read it with interest.
Next morning, Xiang Han had yet to wake up when Lu Ze interrupted his sleep. Then, with the help of the other person, Xiang Han dazedly brushed his teeth and washed his paws and face. It wasn’t until a fragrance hit his nose before he jerked awake. He immediately sobered up, stared at the lunch box on the table with shining eyes and asked, “What porridge is it today? Is there a side dish?”
Lu Ze paused and had no choice but to turn around after scooping out a bowl of porridge. "There are no side dishes today."
"Ah? Why?" Xiang Han was somewhat disappointed.
Lu Ze stirred the porridge and said: "They are all pickled food. You have a bad stomach so you need to eat less."
"Fine." He reluctantly opened his mouth and waited to be fed. Fortunately, the millet porridge was very fragrant so he was still very happy to eat it.
Talking about feeding, Xiang Han was initially very reluctant. Because Lu Ze would always steal his food in between feeding him, and would sometimes even feed him mouth to mouth. Putting aside the fact that his saliva was mixed in, this action was particularly slow, making him wonder when he will ever be full. Using his inconvenient right hand as an excuse, Lu Ze insisted on taking on this chore. Any objection was useless and Xiang Han could only reluctantly agree.
Ah, just eating breakfast alone can make him turn red and breathless. Apart from him, there was really no one else.
Xiang Han stared at Lu Ze who was currently cleaning up the dishes with melancholy. The system comforted in his mind: [Mr. Xiang, there is somebody to care, cherish and help you to complete your tasks easily and earn money. How wonderful this is.].
Xiang Han narrowed his eyes and shook his head. His expression had a touch of sadness: [It will not be good when my injury recovers. He’s just fattening me up before getting ready to eat me].
Ah, how did he become smarter today? The system was surprised and could not help but ask: [How do you know?]
Xiang Han continued to be sad: [ ’Husky’ told me.].
[You really became friends with him?] The system felt that it was necessary to remind him: [After you fell asleep last night, the target saw your chat history with Mr. Zhou.]
"What?!" Xiang Han immediately looked up and questioned Lu Ze: "You saw my chat with the ‘Husky’?"
"Yeah." Lu Ze nodded, not intending to hide it in the first place.
"How can you not respect other people’s privacy?" Xiang Han was furious but afterward, he felt a little guilty: "Did, did you see anything?"
He seems to have talked badly a lot about Lu Ze in his chat.
Lu Ze mouth slightly twitched, trying to ignore those complaints of him and sincerely apologized: "I'm sorry. I saw the notification on the screen which seemed very interesting and held a story. In a moment of curiosity, I opened it."
Saying this, he smoothly changed the topic: "Right, Mr. Zhou mentioned he wants to write a new novel?"
"Yeah," Mentioning this, Xiang Han started to get excited again. Yesterday, as he was discussing writing tips with the ‘Husky’, the other party simply took out his new work to use as an example. Because it was an interstellar theme, Xiang Han excitedly provided ideas for world architecture, battleships, weapons and others.
Lu Ze sat beside the bed and as usual, stared at him as he said: "Mr. Zhou's literary style has been very popular, and this cooperation has been very successful. I think ... it's better that we don’t let fertilized water flow outside our fields."
"What do you mean?"
Lu Ze said: "I want to make it into a game. We’ll cooperate with Mr. Zhou. You can take charge of the world’s architecture. The story is written by Mr. Zhou and we’ll make the game.”
[Can I do that?] Xiang Han asked his system. After all, it involved the weapon theory, battleship system, cosmic law and so on. It was rather sensitive information.
The system said: [Please wait a minute, I’ll consult the higher-ups.]
Big A and Little B quickly came online. Big A directly said: [You can, but the final version of the novel will be reviewed by us.]
After getting Big A’s consent, Xiang Han started to discuss with Lu Ze excitedly.
However, what surprised him was that many times, even before Xiang Han finished explaining the theory, Lu Ze was able to grasp the flow. As to why his guesses were so accurate, Lu Ze himself was not clear. He patted Xiang Han’s head, smiled and said: "It is probably because we’re connected in heart and soul."
Xiang Han sported a chicken coop-like hairstyle with a look of resentment: They are all actual military facts and physical knowledge. What heart and soul?
Big A and Little B were also very active. They brought out a lot of information for him for reference.
Xiang Han could not help but swallow: [Big A, your position in the military must be very high.]
On the other side, Lu Ze was also actively contacting 'Husky' to discuss the matter of cooperation.
The ‘Husky’ initially hesitated, but after seeing the information Xiang Han had compiled, he was suddenly swayed. The structure and system of this world were too complete, especially the mechs, battleships, and characteristics of various models. Even the development history, operational effectiveness, and all kinds of physics knowledge that had not been heard before were listed out, as though they really existed. Xiang Han even sketched an extremely realistic scene out.
The 'Husky' did not even take time to consider and immediately agreed. Both sides quickly signed the contract. Xiang Han and 'Husky' began to huddle together every day, discussing various things.
Lu Ze depressingly discovered that he seemed to have dug himself a pit.
On the other side, due to the attention from the fans of the movie and book, the online players of ‘Ten Thousand Worlds’ also continuously increased. On the tenth day of the beta test, the number of players in the game rose to more than 10 million.
When Qian Xiaofeng called Lu Ze to report this good news, he couldn't help but say exasperatedly: "Fortunately, we were ambitious and used good servers. If we continue to develop accordingly, our servers will crash one day."
The corners of Lu Ze’s mouth rose and he asked, “What about the person I asked you to watch?”
"Oh, him," Qian Xiaofeng immediately lowered his voice and said cautiously: "Nothing unusual at the moment."
"Okay, continue watching. Also, I will go to Muxi town tomorrow with my assistant. Let the people in the company know."
After hanging up the phone, Lu Ze knocked on the door of the ward and walked in, “We’ll end this here today.” Then he looked at the ‘Husky’: “Mr. Zhou, Xiang Han needs to be discharged today. Tomorrow, I’m going to take him to Muxi to relax his mind. Any other discussion can be left for another time."
"Muxi, ah." The ‘Husky’ sunk into deep thought before turning to Xiang Han: "The hot springs in the ancient town are good. Mr. Xiang, remember to soak longer, haha..."
Xiang Han immediately noticed the crisis, and when the ‘Husky’ left, he put on stubborn face: "I’m not going."
Lu Ze frowned: "Didn’t we agree to go before?"
Xiang Han covered his head with the quilt, "When was that? How can I not remember?"
Lu Ze walked over and tore away the quilt, "This time, we are deliberately leaving to bait the fish. I need you to cooperate with me."
Xiang Han was somewhat skeptical, "Really?"
Lu Ze’s eyes wavered slightly and he coughed, "Of course, why would I lie to you?"
"Then, all right," Xiang Han agreed. After packing, he started to say, "I want to eat spicy crayfish."
Lu Ze did not even think and directly refused, "You have a bad stomach..."
"Or I will not go," Xiang Han lay down on the bed and refused to move.
Lu Ze's forehead muscles twitched and he conceded: "Garlic flavour, and you can only eat five."
"OK, we’re setting off tonight. We’ll go to Muxi to eat," Lu Ze also added his conditions and said with gritted teeth.
Hearing this, Xiang Han immediately jumped off the bed happily. Lu Ze quickly supported him and furiously said, "You just took off your cast, be more careful."
Before leaving, Lu Ze called Lawyer Zhang again to find out about Zhao Handong.
Lawyer Zhang’s voice was a bit tired and he apologized: “The Zhao lad did not go out these days, as if he was being kept under control. Also, from the current situation, he will only be sentenced to one year, and... they are still fighting for probation..."
Lu Ze snorted coldly and said: "Find a way to let him let down his guard. It's best to let him get together with those friends of his."
"You're thinking of……"
"Zhao Handong may be involved in drugs. Uncle Zhang, help me to keep a close eye on him." Lu Ze sneered in his heart after hanging up the phone.
Xiang Han approached him and urged, "Come on, I'm hungry."
The chill in Lu Ze’s eyes receded as he took the things from Xiang Han’s hands and smiled, “Okay, let's go.”
