e cat’s eightieth year to its one hundredth year, it’s only five years in human terms.
This is obviously not a linear function…”

“Linear function?” He Yanlu narrowed his eyes.
“I feel like I’ve heard this term before…”

You know this term, you big fool! A linear function is middle school math! Clearly, it’s old news!

“Did you really graduate from high school?” Ye Yixing teased, stroking his chin.
“You’re worse at math than a cat.”

He Yanlu’s expression was gloomy, and he didn’t speak.
Suddenly, he reached out and twisted the black cat’s ear fiercely.

“(=皿=) It hurts!”

Before Ye Yixing could start complaining, He Yanlu’s attention was drawn to another piece of information.
“Ah! You’ve marked me!”

Not sure what he saw, he stared at the computer with a strange expression.
“Do you see me as your personal property?”

What mark? Ye Yixing turned his gaze to the computer.

[Cats are very sensitive to smells and don’t like other scents on their body or belongings.
They have scent glands on their face, so when they rub their face on something, they are actually marking that area as their property with their scent.
Other cats can sense this kind of marking, and generally won’t approach objects that have been marked because they know it belongs to someone else.] “= = ” He didn’t even know he had these things on his face! So, does that mean he’s marked by He Yanlu? This idea sounds pretty good…

[… Humans can’t smell this kind of marking, but other cats can sense it.
Generally, other cats won’t approach objects that have been marked because they know it belongs to someone else.] “No wonder!” He Yanlu exclaimed softly.

“What?” Ye Yixing asked curiously, looking up at the man holding him.
He had delicate features, a charming smile on his lips – he was a private property marked by his own scent, why did this idea make him feel so excited?!

“One day after class, I met a little stray cat with a spotted coat on the way home.
I wanted to pet it…” “=皿=” You dare to cheat on me!

“It looked pretty well-behaved and didn’t run away or anything.
It even seemed like it was waiting for me to come closer, but as soon as I crouched down, it ran away…” He Yanlu wrinkled his nose, feeling quite innocent.
He lowered his head to look at the black cat again and said, “So, it was already marked by you at that time.”

“…” Ye Yixing’s face turned dark.
He lowered his voice and said, “You can’t pet other cats, and you can’t let other cats rub against you!”

“Oh.” He Yanlu actually responded quickly, but his gaze suddenly avoided the green eyes of the black cat.
His voice was very soft and gentle, making people feel floaty.
“I understand.”

Ye Yixing was stimulated by his partner’s cooperative attitude, and he leaned on He Yanlu’s shoulder, bringing his face closer…

“What are you doing?” He Yanlu instinctively backed away when the black cat’s sudden movement caught him off guard.

“I want to mark you more.” Ye Yixing said seriously.


Someone’s face turned red.
He pushed away the black cat’s head and his gaze flickered.
“Don’t I already have one?”

Ye Yixing’s face was not hot or cold, and he persisted, “The scent will fade.”

“I… won’t pet other cats in the future.”

“What are you resisting? You’re mine…” Ye Yixing paused and then continued, “Why can’t I mark you?”

He Yanlu pouted and squirmed, “It sounds so weird.”

Ye Yixing chuckled softly, “What’s so weird about it?”

Taking advantage of the other’s stunned moment, he leaned over and rubbed his head against He Yanlu’s neck, sticking out his tongue to gently lick his face.
He licked for a while before adding, “We used to do this all the time, you didn’t feel embarrassed back then.”

Suddenly, He Yanlu felt a chill run down his spine as he met the piercing green gaze of the black cat before him.
How come he never realized how sinister Xiao Hei could be? With its true identity as a demon cat revealed, the way it spoke was full of playful tones mixed with seriousness, and its gentleness held a hint of pride and wit.

At times, it could even be quite eloquent, not unlike a fox!

Or perhaps its demonic nature was just starting to surface!

Why did he feel so nervous all of a sudden? (=_=)

His neck grew hot as it was nuzzled and licked, and his face flushed from the wetness of its tongue.

“Enough, enough…” He Yanlu tried to pull away from the cat’s tongue, desperately tilting his head backwards.

“I belong to you, so you belong to me,” the black cat said in a serious tone, with a voice and pitch that were most seductive.

His heart raced, what was this feeling…!?

He clutched his chest, feeling a strong sense of belonging that made his heart tingle.

His mind wandered to the story of “A Chinese Ghost Story”.
(= =)

“Are you thinking about Xiao Hei?” Chu Wenxing suddenly asked with suspicion.
He Yanlu was startled, his thoughts immediately pulled back from last night’s memories.

“As I thought!” Chu Wenxing concluded, leaving He Yanlu speechless.
Chu Wenxing continued, “Xiao Hei is truly a demon! Look at you, you’re like a scholar who’s been bewitched by a fox spirit!”

He Yanlu was taken aback, and lowered his head to approach Chu Wenxing, whispering cautiously, “Do you also think it’s like a fox?”

Chu Wenxing nodded, feeling that the cat was quite strange, not like a normal feline, but not a bad cat either, judging from how it treated He Yanlu.

But, it seemed like He Yanlu wasn’t asking the right question? Wouldn’t a normal person ask about the topic of “soul sucking”? (= =)


He Yanlu nodded thoughtfully, “But Xiao Hei is a cat, right? Cats aren’t like foxes.
Is it a raccoon cat?”

(=皿=) Damn, he’s so clueless! There’s no hope for He Yanlu!!

Chu Wenxing pounded the table in frustration, “Listen carefully, I’ll say it again, and then I’m leaving!” Being around an idiot for too long was contagious!

“…Yesterday, I overheard some second-year female students from your literature department talking at the bookstore.
They said that Ye Yixing hasn’t been to class for almost half a month.”

After hearing this, He Yanlu’s expression suddenly became serious.
He sat in silence for a moment before saying, “I understand.”

Chu Wenxing said, “He Yanlu, don’t overthink things.
Honestly, I’m not worried about your current situation.
I think you’re the happiest you’ve been since we met…”

“Mhm.” All of this happiness was brought to him by Little Black.

“You hardly smiled before, and when we first met, I thought you had a poker face…”

…He Yanlu twitched his eye corner.
Poker face?

“If I could, I hope you can continue to be happy like you are now.” Chu Wenxing finished speaking, gave his friend a meaningful look, and then packed up his books and left.

He Yanlu closed his eyes and sank into deep thought.

After Little Black appeared, he had someone to care about and someone to miss.
Yes, he had never been as happy as he was now.

Xiao Hei said he was his.
When he heard those words, he suddenly felt inexplicably at ease.

He picked up the textbook on the coffee table and got up with a smile.

Just one more class, and he could go home, and see his Xiao Hei…

On his way to the classroom, he pondered what he and Little Black would eat for dinner, and if he should bring up writing a novel with Xiao Hei at night.
Perhaps he could ask about Little Black’s experiences as a cat demon; that would be very interesting.

Every moment he spent with Xiao Hei was happy, and he didn’t want to waste a single second…

He wanted to share everything with Xiao Hei.

As he walked, He Yanlu drifted off in thought, slowly becoming unaware of his silly grin.
It wasn’t until a wave of men’s cologne overwhelmed him that he quickly stepped back, realizing he almost ran into someone.

Panicking, he looked up and saw a tall man standing in front of him, glancing at him before moving aside to let him pass.

He Yanlu murmured a soft “sorry” with his head down.

He rarely paid attention to people’s appearances, sometimes even forgetting his classmates’ faces.

But for some reason, the stranger’s gaze made his heart surge with an uncomfortable sense of familiarity.
