The Original Owner had lived with Shen Junyu for several years.
Everything about Shen Junyu, his habit, daily schedule, and other trivial things, had been embedded quite deeply in the Original memories. Lin Yuetian could find those bits of information he needed right now with just a little browsing in the memories he had received. Unexpectedly, despite being weak physically, the Original owner’s intelligence and memorization ability was actually quite admirable.
From the memories, Lin Yuetian knew that Shen Junyu would go to a Coffee Shop every Wednesday, right at 2.00 p.m, to buy a cup of Mocha. Such a habit was developed to reminisce some memories related to Bai Li. What kind of precious history was it, the Original owner didn’t know, and Lin Yuetian definitely couldn’t care less about it. What’s important was, the fact that he knew a fixed schedule of Shen Junyu, knowing his destination and routes.
Afterward, what he had to do was simple. After removing the disguise he had been putting on all this while, and regaining the appearance of the Original owner, he stood at the intersection where Shen Junyu would pass by, plastering a fragile look on his beautiful face. To enhance the impact, he even wore the Battle armor for a Shou, namely, the legendary thin white shirt!
Looking at the sudden turn of events, the System couldn’t help but get excited. He quickly bombarded Lin Yuetian, encouraging him to keep working hard (working hard with normal counterattack strategies, such as seduction, instead of killing at the first look),
[“I always believe that you are a gifted person in any aspect, you see, the sea of hardship is boundless, but it’s never too late to go back to the shore. I still have the 20 or so Scumbag Counterattacks guidebook I said before, why don’t you take a look at the strategies-,”]
Lin Yuetian interrupted his chatter, “The car is coming.”
On the corner of the intersection, Shen Junyu’s car did appear and was currently zooming to Lin Yuetian’s current position. When he saw Shen Junyu’s car, Lin Yuetian immediately stood firmly, desperately waving at the car with a hopeful added with a touch of timidity-look on his face.
The car slowed down and finally stopped beside Lin Yuetian. The window with dark privacy glass at the backseat rolled down, revealing Shen Junyu’s familiar cold face in the original memories.
“Lin Yuetian…? What are you doing here?”
Lin Yuetian didn’t immediately answer his question but took a few deep breaths beforehand. It wasn’t due to nervousness, or pretending to be so, but because this body’s condition was honestly too frail! Standing under the scorching sun for a while had already caused him to feel dizzy and short of breath. Lin Yuetian had never experienced such a weak feeling in his real body, or in the bodies he used in the 2 worlds before, it was simply discomfiting.
After easing his breath, Lin Yuetian deliberately drooped his eyelids slightly, showing a pitiful, sad, desperate, and at a loss expression. He spoke using the weak and submissive tone of the Original Owner in the end,
“Junyu…I have thought about it for a long time, I, I really don’t want to be separated from you…I want to stay by your side. Junyu, please, take me away, bring me with you, don’t leave me, please?”
Shen Junyu stared at him deeply, and reminded him solemnly, “You already know about Bai Li. He has come back now, and he despises your presence. Won’t you feel bothered by it?”
“I won’t, I don’t care!”
Lin Yuetian’s expression went even more dejected and sorrowful as he desperately continued, “I’ve been thinking about this matter for a long time…every day and night, all I think about is you. I realized, I really, I can’t live without you…I love you! I just want to stay by your side, I don’t expect anything in return, it’s fine even if you keep me hidden, I am willing. I just want to accompany you…even if, it’s just a lover…or even a…play…thing…”
The System hadn’t heard such miserable submissive lines for a long time. But the fact that the words came out from his Tasker’s mouth whose kind of nature he knew quite well didn’t match the heartbreaking words at all, he couldn’t help but retort,
[“Oh, wow, just what kind of magic are you chanting about…”]
Lin Yuetian shook his head to the System inwardly, and gently replied, “You don’t understand, do you? This kind of domineering man…really likes to eat this kind of set.”
The way he confidently answered, sounded as if Lin Yuetian was some kind of Love Expert as credible and guaranteed as 24k Gold, or that type of person who’d write a posting of 10 little tricks to successfully grasp your Boyfriend’s heart. It was this time that the System really hated the fact that he had no form or entity right now, hence unable to show his goosebumps from hearing Lin Yuetian’s narcissistic boasting.
The System wanted to refute Lin Yuetian’s grandiloquence, unfortunately, Shen Junyu didn’t play according to the cards and slap the System.
After hearing Lin Yuetian’s earnest plea of submission, he was silent for a moment. A glimmer of desire flashed in his eyes as he eventually gave his reply. “Get in the car.”
[“Damn it! How could you actually eat this fake fragile white lotus set!”] The System roared furiously, and scolded Shen Junyu from inside Lin Yuetian’s head.
Lin Yuetian obediently get into the back seat and sat cautiously beside Shen Junyu.
The man brushed Lin Yuetian’s hair with his fingers, witnessing Lin Yuetian’s silent acquiescence, showing a well-behaved look. Shen Junyu nodded in satisfaction. He told his assistant who was driving the car, an acquaintance who had worked by Shen Junyu’s side for many years, called Li Yi,
“Get out of the car and help me buy a cup of Mocha. After that, we’ll go back to my Villa in the suburbs.”
[“Damn Scumbag Gong!”] The System once again excitedly scolded Shen Junyu. [“Just where do you put your White Moonlighta person one yearned for, in this case, it’s Bai Li? You can’t even resist this cheap seduction, are you worthy of your so-called White Moonlight?!”]
“Isn’t this to be expected?” Lin Yuetian leisurely responded to the System in his mind. “In my opinion, those who attempt to find a substitute lover have no actual love, but merely want to excuse their lust or desire”
[“Hearing what you said…Why did you sound like you’re quite experienced in this aspect?”]
“Well, not really.” Lin Yuetian replied modestly, “It’s just a common knowledge for the Industry’s Elites.”
Meanwhile, in the car, Shen Junyu continued to list his instructions to his assistant. Telling Li Yi to take care of the aftermath, deleting all kinds of surveillance cameras capturing Lin Yuetian’s presence today, etc, without even blinking or caring that the person they’re talking about was sitting beside him.
Lin Yuetian was not surprised. From the Original memories, he knew that every time the Original Owner escaped and was captured back, Shen Junyu dealt with and covered the matter with similar routines. This was the reason why the original owner’s struggles and suffering were completely hidden.
Speaking of which, this kind of overbearing measure was also the reason why Lin Yuetian chose to find Shen Junyu openly.
It was nothing more than taking advantage of Shen Junyu’s resources and power.
After all, Lin Yuetian’s current ability was not enough to do anything unscrupulously. However Shen Junyu, someone who was said to be able to cover the sky with one handanother phrase for omnipotentin City A, it was a trivial matter. Perhaps, never in Shen Junyu’s wildest dream did he ever imagine his proudest resource and power actually became the ticket to ensure his silent doom.
This was Yuetian’s strategy to deal with a ridiculously powerful Domineering CEO.
To put it in other words perhaps this situation was called, Use one’s position to its utmost advantage?LYT uses the phrase wrongly, lol. It originally come from Chinese Sage Confucius’ idiom: When you’re in one position, do what your position is supposed to do. It was created in order to … Continue reading
The System couldn’t stop himself from commenting, [“Tell me the truth, there must be something wrong with your language education in that Cyberpunk World of yours, right?”] The System continued amiably, [“Just admit honestly, I promise I won’t laugh at you.”]
Lin Yuetian decided to ignore the System. He firmly believed that his own choice of words was correct, there was nothing wrong with them.
During the car ride, Li Yi looked extremely upset.
As for the reason, Lin Yuetian knew it clearly. Previously, Li Yi had admitted it himself to the Original Owner. Actually, Li Yi also liked Bai Li, but he chose to wish for Bai Li and Shen Junyu to eventually marry and be happy together. Due to his selfless pursuit and silent love for Bai Li, of course, in his eyes, the Original Owner was an eyesore. It wasn’t like he didn’t dare to sneakily send trouble to the Original Owner. The miserable life that the Original Owner had before was partly due to Li Yi’s calculation and scheme.
But still, Li Yi couldn’t get rid of him regardless. Because in the end, he still obeyed Shen Junyu’s order first and foremost.
It was an hour’s journey in the car and finally, they arrived outside of Shen Junyu’s Villa in the suburbs. After dropping off Shen Junyu and Lin Yuetian, Li Yi drove away, leaving the Villa to finish what he had been ordered to do.
“This place is truly desolate and isolated.” Lin Yuetian shared his delight with his System with a tone full of approval.
He seemed like saying, ‘Ha-Ha! What a good place to get rid of someone!’
The System closed the microphone and refused to give any responses.
As soon as the two people entered the Villa, right after Lin Yuetian closed the door behind him, Shen Junyu folded his arms in front of his chest and commanded domineeringly, “Take it off.”
“Junyu, I miss you so much…So I, I’ve been thinking, can’t we add some excitement…?”
Lin Yuetian didn’t waver in front of the Domineering Scum Gong, despite his face currently being full of tears, he stubbornly took out a small candle from his backpack and continued his suggestion, “I bought this on purpose. Let’s use a scented candle, I just want us to have a good time…a little, just a bit, even for a moment, I want to experience being held gently…Is this not possible…after all?”
Shen Junyu silently looked at him without any change in his expression. Only after a moment of silence, did he give his consent, “…Then, lit them yourself.”
Lin Yuetian smiled and quickly lit the candle, saying, “Thank you, Junyu.”
[“Let me warn you once again, this time there’s no loophole. The Mission is to make Shen Junyu expresses his love for you, sincerely!”] The System knew this small candle was the leftover paralyzing drug he used on Ning Songhua in the previous world. [“I beg you, please don’t repeat the past horror, okay?”]
“How can I?” Lin Yuetian’s tone when answering the System in his mind was as gentle as always. “I’ve always been reliable in my job, it’s impossible for me to repeat old tricks. Different people need different strategies after all”
[“You, what are you going to do…?”] The System was freaked out.
His psychology right now was like watching a Horror Movie, the terrifying sound and the hint that the Ghost would appear had already started. Unfortunately, the System didn’t know what Ghost was hidden in Lin Yuetian’s sleeves. He could only wait anxiously, without being given any privilege to close his eyes (since once again he had no form currently).
[“Big Brother, please take it easy!”]
He could only hope his advice and persuasions he had painstakingly and constantly murmuring to Lin Yuetian’s ears somehow would bear fruits.
The candles were burning, exuding a faint light, however, there was still no fragrance in the air. After all, the drug was colorless and odorless. On the other side, Shen Junyu was sitting on the couch, waiting for Lin Yuetian to crawl obediently like he used to.
Suddenly, his expression stagnated. He felt that half of his body, not knowing when, had become numb and unable to move. Amidst his shock, he cast his glance to the silently burning candle, and he immediately knew what was happening.
“Lin Yuetian! What did you put in the candle?!”
Lin Yuetian didn’t reply. He just stood quietly. The smile plastered on his face was still looking as beautiful as always, even the arc to which his lips were lifted didn’t waver. It was just like a-,
