Gentle Beast 74

<<< Previous Chapter | Project Page | Next Chapter >>>

Ryan slightly froze, then he lifted Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu's face and gently rubbed her pink lips, "What are you so anxious about?"

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu snuggled into his arms and honestly confessed, "I heard someone say downstairs that a leopard got caught and I thought it was you. . ."

Ryan grinned and soothed the startled little girl, "Don't confuse me with those fools."

"But I'm worried about you," Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu straightened up so her forehead was against his shoulder and said to herself, "I won't bring you back later, it's too dangerous here. . ."

Ryan narrowed his eyes and swallowed her words, "Later?"

". . ." Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu choked. Although she had asked for leave, she would definitely have to come back every semester and she hadn't had time to discuss it with Ryan.

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu tried to defend herself, "Because my studies here aren't complete. . . if I don't come back, the school will expel me, so. . . I have to come back every semester."

Ryan quickly understood the point, "Then get expelled."

"No," Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu hurriedly shook her head, "If my parents knew, they would be angry."

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu saw he wasn't responding and couldn't help but kiss his chin, "Ryan, believe me. When I reach my senior year, I won't come back as often."

Ryan held her waist and his voice was heavy, "When is that?"

"I'm a sophomore now, I'll be a senior in two years. . . ooh. . ."

She hadn't finished yet when her jaw was caught in Ryan's claws and his thin lips followed, biting down.

Her lower lip was in slight pain but she opened her mouth and he took advantage of the opportunity. His tongue twisted into her mouth and he punished her maliciously.

Soon, her tongue began to ache.

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu was caught off guard by his kiss but was aware of his anger, and softly explained, "Ryan, you listen to me. . ."

Ryan laid her down on the bed in the middle of the room and held her down, his teeth biting at her ear lobe slowly, "Wanting me to wait for you?"

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu subconsciously nodded.

"The leopard only waits patiently when there is prey," Ryan lowered his voice and asked, "Tell me, are you my prey?"

". . ."

Regardless of whether she said yes or no, it wasn't too important.

Because the outcome was the same.

Ryan was a fierce hunter and he took Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu into his hands and he encroached upon her.

The little lamb tried to struggle and bit at Ryan's tongue.

The faint sweetness spread in his mouth, like the red ink dripping into water, and it quickly pooled into every corner.

Unfortunately, the effect wasn't much, but it only further aroused his interest in hunting.

Ryan held her waist and fixed her to the bed.

. . .

When Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu came to, it was clearly dusk. The sun had just fallen and was still sinking.

When Ryan let her go, it was already night and the moonlight was thin.

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu had cried her eyes red and her voice hoarse but she didn't even have the strength to get up and pour water.

She stared at Ryan in front of her and, with a little irritation, grit her teeth the fell asleep.


The next day, Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu was awoken by a string of bells.

The buzz rang in her ear. She closed her eyes and touched her mobile phone. Stunned, she moved tot he front. Seeing it was a video call from her mother, she immediately woke up and quickly dressed, connecting the call.

"Mom, mom," Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu climbed to the end of the bed and stared nervously at Ryan across from her, making a silent gesture at him.

Ryan curved his long legs and propped up his chin, his long tail flicking a melodious arc behind him, and he looked at her.

"Little Darling, why haven't you gotten up yet? It's almost noon at home," her mother said seeing her in her pajamas.

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu's face was red and she said, "Last night, I went to bed too late. . ."

Her mother thought it was to study and said, "Don't be so busy so late anymore. You're young, take care of your body."

Clearly it was a normal sentence, but Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu thought of what happened last night and her cheeks became unbearably hotter.

It was Ryan that "tired" her body.

Fortunately, the video meant her mother couldn't see it so they naturally shifted topics.

Mr. and Mrs. Jǐ had taveled to Ireland where the scenery was picturesque and the environment was beautiful. The residents were friendly and enthusiastic.

After staying there for ten days, they had made a decision. They planned to return home to complete the formalities and settle there for the rest of their lives.

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu's eyes widened in surprise, "Why?"

Her mother said, "Your father's body is getting worse, and the doctor said to find a quiet place to live. When we came to Ireland, your father fell in love at a glimpse. His favorite physics research is happening here. We talked for several days and the only thing I was worried about was you, so I wanted to ask you, would you like to come settle with us here?"

"I. . ." Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu looked at Ryan who had already gotten out of bed and her brain was tied, "Mom, I want to stay here. . ."

Her mother thought she couldn't bear to leave her friends and classmates, plus the news was sudden. Whenever her daughter didn't have the time to digest it, she would be reluctant. "Ah, then wait a while. If you want to come see mom and dad, feel free to come."

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu nodded.

Later, her mother and Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu talked about other things and when the phone was about to hang up, she suddenly made a sound.

A long, thick, mottled tail swept across the video as if it were an illusion.

Mrs. Jǐ asked, "Ōu, do you have any other cats in the house?"

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu caught a glimpse of Ryan walking past her and quickly took the phone, turning around, "No mom, you saw it wrong. It's Gǔn Gǔn."

"When did he get so big?" Her mother said. Fortunately, she didn't ask too much and quickly hung up.

". . ."

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu was holding her mobile phone and was ready to talk to Ryan. Suddenly she was pulled into a hard chest and a deep, hoarse voice crashed into her ears, "Little Darling, your name?"

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu's ear itched and the itchiness quickly spread throughout her body and her ears turned red, "Yeah."

Ryan asked, "Who's Gǔn Gǔn?"

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu: ". . ."


After solving the school issue, Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu had to buy some lab equipment. After all, she wasn't going to class, but the lap reports still had to be completed every semester.

After yesterday's incident, Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu didn't dare leave Ryan at home alone.

Originally, she wanted Ryan to become a leopard and take him out with her, but she changed her mind.

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu found a few pieces of clothing worn by her father and gave it to Ryan to try it.

Unfortunately, Ryan was too tall and big. The clothes were unsuitable.

With the tail trailing behind Ryan, there was simply no way to ignore it.

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu gently gripped Ryan's tail and sighed.

She just wanted to have a meeting with him, how could it be so difficult?

Just when she was ready to give up, she suddenly remembered something and her eyes lit up. She ran toward her room and said, "You wait for me."

After a while, she came back with a large plaid overcoat, "Ryan, try this."

This was something she had inadvertently seen when she was shopping last year. She didn't know why but she imagined Ryan wearing it, and the more she thought about it the more it fit. The next day, she took all her money and bought it.

The coat was crisp and exquisitely crafted, and the length was to Ryan's calf. If he hid the tail behind him, no one would ever see it.

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu went back to the wardrobe again and found a large sweater and trousers, then passed them to Ryan to put on.

After he was dressed, Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu stepped back and looked at Ryan.

The dark coat was worn over everything and he straightened his body in a moment. It outlined his upright stature, wide back, and his long legs.

It restrained his initial wildness, but only refined the controlled fierceness.

At the moment, his brows were deeply wrinkled and he stretched his fingernails to hook in the shirt, his eyes unable to endure.

——Why were human clothes so troublesome?

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu could see he wanted to tear the clothes and quickly stopped him, "Don't Ryan, wait until we come back later, okay?"

Ryan paused and glanced at the girl full of hope and finally put his hand down, then said, "Next time, don't have me wear another man's clothes."

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu paused, "This is my father's, and he only wore it once. . ."

"Leopards have a keen sense of smell," Ryan bowed her body and pointed at her lips, "Or, do you want me to take your father's scent with me?"

". . ." Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu's face flushed and she became angry, biting his finger, "Ryan, no more nonsense!"

. . .

Due to the large amount of time spent putting on clothes, Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu was againt tossed by Ryan and when they went out, it was already half past three in the afternoon.

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu first went to the electronics store to buy things then to the mall to buy a few pieces of clothing for Ryan.

After buying clothes, there was still enough time and Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu took Ryan up the street.

The lantern festival had just passed and the streets were still festive.

The shops on both sides also sporadically open and the dim light of the street lamps fell on the snow at the roadside, reflecting the bright light.

The glass windows were full of all kinds of goods and unlike the mundane materials exchanged in the beast world, anything could be found there.

Even though Ryan already knew man could create many high-tech things, it was still another feeling to stand there.

"Ryan, let's go there and take a look!" Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu suddenly pulled on Ryan's hand and walked down the street across the road.

Taking two steps, she saw Ryan was still motionless and couldn't help but look back, "Ryan, what are you looking at?"

Ryan's eyes were straight ahead and his voice was low, "What is that?"

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu followed his gaze and saw the latest news being broadcast on the screen.

A man was selling drugs, taking hostages, and was shot by a policeman between the eyebrows.

The scene was just at the scene were the armed police officer shot the gun, the small bullet breaking free from the gun and racing toward the robber.

In the next moment, the robber fell to the ground.

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu didn't think much about it, "It's called a gun, a powerful weapon."

Ryan licked his teeth, "Gun?"

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu nodded, "But normal people can't have guns. Only armed police officers and military personnel have the qualifications to own one. . ."

Ryan dropped his gaze, thoughtful.

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu didn't take the incident to heart and pulled Ryan along to several other places.

When they were heading home that evening, Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu suddenly stopped after passing a convenience store.

"Wait for me here," leaving this sentence behind, Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu ran into the convenience store.

Ryan looked up and saw the little girl standing in front of a cupboard, biting her lips and her face very red and embarrassed.

Jǐ Xiǎo Ōu simply looked down at the shelves of colorful boxes and picked one. Paying for everything, she still hadn't come back out.

Ryan dropped his gaze and stared at the small box she was trying to hide in her pocket, asking in a deep voice, "What is it?"
