Under the request of the self-proclaimed medic, Eli cooperatively maintained his human form. However, the only reason why he did so was because Gu Yan had wanted him to cooperate.
“There does not seem to be much of a problem. Likely in half a month, he should be completely cured,” he said. The doctor who had rushed back from Figure Door Star looked at the results of the latest medical examination. Her beautiful face was stone cold, similar to a certain Heidis.
The daily examinations and check-ups had gone on for several days. After the session today, the adult Heidis still remained impassive and his expressionless face still showed no signs of change.
In reality, he had already started to recall certain things. At least he could now recognize the two people in front of him and their positions.
Those bits and pieces of his memory still cannot be completely whole at present. Having a fuzzy memory was not a pleasant thing yet the adult Heidis was still indifferent towards this…
He was very accustomed to enduring.
“The third prince said he will come and visit the commander later. Later on, the Commander just has to maintain your present state and it should be fine.” Evan nodded to the doctor before making this suggestion to his superior.
Their commander was still unable to deal with any work and would have to continue applying for leave. During his period of disappearance, he had already applied once. Imagine a person who used to not take a single leave all year round suddenly takes it continuously; it was bound to inevitably cause some people to become restless.
“Hai… amnesia. He is still not any cuter.”Looking at the handsome and aloof adult Heidis, the female physician, who looked rather young, said with some regret. She wanted to experience the feeling of spoiling her own nephew.
“Cough … Ms. Neilfi.” The subject of their conversation was still standing there unmoved. Evan coughed lightly to change the topic. Using the word ‘cute’ on their commander was too scary, okay!
At this time for unknown reasons, Evan suddenly recalled the docile cat form of his commander lying quietly on the youth’s lap…
When the youth rubs his belly, the adult Heidis’s response was not to attack but rather, obediently wait for the youth to finish playing with him before licking his fingertips.
Even though they are all Heidis, he could not understand Eli’s actions. The Heidis race has always been known as the most aggressive race, and even with missing memories, their innate characteristics will still be far from ‘docile’.
But in recent days, Evan observed the interactions between his commander and the black hair youth and realized that something seemed off.
The adult Heidis in front of him had placed the youth within his protection circle, not allowing anybody to even touch him as if carefully guarding him.
Ignoring their conversation, as soon as the routine medical examination was over, the adult Heidis dressed in the stiff uniform stood up and left.
Evan had a feeling he knew where his commander was headed. He has seen his commanding officer’s adoration for that dark-haired young man, unwilling to even let him out of his sight. He was extremely uh…
In his mind, the word suddenly appeared causing the excellent soldier to be at a loss. Pushing up his glasses, he couldn’t help but think, this word was extremely appropriate such that he cannot refute it, but he also found it difficult to acknowledge it.
His inherent three worldviews were once again under attack.
At this point in time, the person in question was lying on the couch … adjusting himself to a suitable position.
It’s not soft enough. Thinking of this, Gu Yan turned over and onto his side.
It was still uncomfortable. Giving up, he adjusted back once again. Wishing the bed was a little higher, Gu Yan continued to lay there staring at the lamp on the wall.
The Heidis race does not need sleep, something like a ‘bed’, the whole empire does not have. It has been a long time since he had a proper sleep, Gu Yan thought sullenly.
Why on earth did he have to dig such a pit for himself?
Staring at the chandelier, Gu Yan got lost in thoughts and wanted to sigh when he felt a weight on his legs.
He almost blurted out the two syllables of “Qiuqiu”, but corrected himself just in time with the right name: “Eli.”
The big cat let out a low meow in response. The silver-tiger tabby cat treaded carefully on the youth’s lap; it knows that this part could withstand its weight.
The adult Heidis stretched out his front paws to touch the youth’s belly. It was slightly soft and not at all strong. Hesitating, it still did not lie on the top of his stomach and opted for the youth’s legs instead.
The silver tabby cat that had been stepping on him just a second ago now quietly laid in his lap, looking extremely obedient…
Gu Yan does not know why Eli had to use his front paws to touch his abdomen. He habitually used his arms to pick up the cat that was on his legs and lifted it onto his chest.
In this position, it was more convenient for the cat to move and also warmer. It must be said that although the current weather on the planet was not cold, it was still quite a bit cooler than where he came from.
The low grunts continued for a good while whenever Gu Yan’s fingers touched the adult Heidis.
The big cat swung its tail slowly, thinking of coiling around the young man’s wrist just like before. However the hand that was playing with his ears was out of reach.
The two ears that were being fiddled could feel the warmth from the youth’s palms. The adult Heidis quietly lying down narrowed its eyes and twitched its ears slightly in response.
Lying in this position, the youth’s neck was extremely close to it. Just a little lower and he could rub it.
From where he laid, the adult Heidis quietly watched his human, silently gazing at him for a good while. Seeing that the youth did not try to push him away, he slowly lowered his head to lick the pale white neck.
The smell that he leaves on this body always seems to fade after awhile causing this adult Heidis to feel very dissatisfied. Time and time again, he had to repeatedly carry out this process.
The smell left from merely rubbing his head against his neck was too mild. Licking would leave a more lasting mark.
Being continuously rubbed and licked by the cat, Gu Yan’s lips curved slightly upwards. Too itchy … Moreover as a cat fanatic, he simply had no resistance towards a cat that was acting spoiled. His rationale regarding the original identity of this cat had been completely tossed out of the window.
Originally, due to a lack of sleep Gu Yan had been spacing out. Touching the feline, Gu Yan felt happy once more. He sees the tail slowly straightening up and hesitated for a second before giving up any resistance and continued to stroke it.
Just as he made contact, Gu Yan heard a low meow from big cat that was near his own neck. The next second, the hand that he reached out was hooked by the tail. Without waiting for him, the tail moved his own hands to stroke his body.
Watching the cat lazing on his body suddenly made Gu Yan recall something. If it was the Qiuqiu at home, this extent of coquettishness only means he is…
“……Uncomfortable?” Gu Yan paused, allowing the cat’s tail to half hook his left hand and gently stroked the big cat’s back with the other spare hand.
Whenever Qiuqiu fell sick, it will become extremely clingy. Although he was usually already very clingy, it became even more so when it was sick. It will use various ways to attract his attention … and the sound of his purring will become different, a little deeper than usual.
“Meow.” The Heidis gently lifted its head and rub the corner of the youth’s lips.
This series of actions happened very quickly and before Gu Yan could react, he already saw the big cat tilt its head slightly to gaze silently at him.
It wasn’t easy trying to restore one’s memories. For an average person, it could even be described as painful.
Fragmented and chaotic memories can cause people to become frustrated. The adult Heidis lying on the youth was accustomed to being patient and this degree of pain was not unbearable for him. However, to be coaxed by such soothing means, he suddenly did not want to be patient anymore…
“Good boy…” it seems like he really wasn’t feeling well. Gu Yan guessed as he continued stroking the big cat’s back more gently. He no longer pushed away the Heidis that was currently kissing and licking at his chin and the corner of his lips. All his attention was on thinking of how to comfort this big cat.
It looks like this ‘ discomfort ‘ will let the youth become unwilling to reject him. Feeling the youth’s soft and warm palm stroking along its spine, the adult Heidis narrowed his vertical pupil. It seems to have learned something new today.
After re-marking his human with his smell once more, the adult Heidis finally let out a satisfied meow.
In those fragmented memories, this ignorant adult Heidis vaguely remembered that there seems to be a way to let its smell linger on this human’s body longer…
A more lasting mark than any kiss.

T/N: 7 Chapters in, I’m starting to think the author has an extreme obsession with cats.
