“Do you play the piano?”
Xiao Siye asked in a low voice, standing in the backlit.
Jiang Zhao couldn’t see his brows eyes, and could only vaguely recognize those amber eyes, like magnificent gems in the dark night.
Ghostly, he replied, “….”
However, as soon as he finished speaking, Xiao Siye’s face suddenly changed to Han Tingfeng’s.
He smiled and had a gentle expression, but he looked like an evil ghost in human skin: “Xiao Zhao, you still play the piano? Let’s practice together, okay?”
Jiang Zhao suddenly sat up from the bed.
With cold sweat on his back, he picked up the mobile phone by the bed and glanced at it. It was two twenty-seven in the morning.
Jiang Zhao sat on the bed for a while, and when he calmed down, he lifted the quilt and went to the bathroom to take a quick shower. The hot water flowed through his tense body, slowly sliding down the muscle lines, and the warmth barely dispelled the chill in the dream.
After coming out of the bathroom, he dried his hair, put on new pajamas, and put on a sleep-inducing aromatherapy.
But no matter how drowsy he made the bedroom, he still didn’t feel sleepy.
He couldn’t help recalling that last night, after the concert, Xiao Siye suddenly asked him if he didn’t play the piano.
He subconsciously refused, and Xiao Siye did not say anything else. When he got home, he felt exhausted, and after washing up, he went straight to sleep until now, only to be woken up by this nightmare.
Jiang Zhao sighed.
When he couldn’t fall asleep, he simply got up. He found a moving documentary, watched penguins like raising cubs until six in the morning, then ordered a breakfast takeaway and drank a large bowl of warm sweet beancurd.
After dinner, he put on a mask and hat and drove to Nuan Nuan Cat Cafe in full gear.
Only cats can heal his heart hurt by that idiot Han Tingfeng.
The car was parked outside the alley, and Jiang Zhao entered the alley with a mask and hat. As soon as he walked into the cat cafe’s small courtyard, he saw Sister Jun circling anxiously in the courtyard, rummaging for something.
As soon as Sister Jun saw him, she seemed to have found a savior: “Come and help me find Sister, I didn’t know where she hide.”
Sister always likes to crawl into the corners and nooks to sleep. After being caught with ashes, she will meow innocently, which makes people not angry at all.
This situation is usually said to be common. Jiang Zhao helped her to take away the bucket in the corner of the yard, and said strangely, “Why are you in such a hurry?”
“When Sister was eating this morning, there was something flaky, so I opened a can for her,” Sister Jun said worriedly, “When I finished feeding the cats in the yard, I came back and found that she had eaten two bites. Then she vomited on the ground, and didn’t move the freeze-dried cat food next to her.”
After a pause, she said again, “I’m worried…it’s cat plague.”
Jiang Zhao’s breathing stagnated.
Cat plague has a fatality rate of 60 to 70%, and the highest can reach 90%. If you really get cat plague, you will basically be robbing your life at the hands of the King of Hell.
What’s more, cat plague is contagious. Although the cats in the cat cafe are all vaccinated on time, no one can guarantee their safety.
Jiang Zhao’s movements became more rapid. He turned over every corner of the first floor, including the cardboard boxes under the bar and the top of the bookshelf, and finally found the sick Sister in the gap between the refrigerator and the wall.
Sister Jun hurriedly brought the air box and carried Sister in with gloves.
But there were still a group of cats in the yard that needed her to take care of. She couldn’t get away for the time being, and looked at Jiang Zhao worriedly: “Can you…”
Jiang Zhao understood and immediately got up holding the air box: “My car is outside, I can take her to the hospital.”
“Please,” Sister Jun said gratefully, “there is a pet hospital three kilometers to the east. I will contact Sister’s owner later.”
Jiang Zhao responded and took Sister to the car.
Sister’s condition does not look very good. Usually, when she sees Jiang Zhao, she will stick to him and make purring sounds, she also likes to roll around and act like a spoiled child. But today, even if Jiang Zhao stuffed his fingers into the gaps in the air box, Sister just touched it lightly with her small paws and closed her eyes weakly.
Some fragmentary memories flashed through Jiang Zhao’s mind uncontrollably, causing him to subconsciously clench the square plate.
After a few seconds, he took a deep breath and stomped on the pedal.
The pet hospital.
Jiang Zhao looked at the doctor who was looking at the test strip in front of him, his fingers clenched involuntarily.
After a few seconds, the doctor raised his head and announced, “It’s not cat plague.”
Jiang Zhao’s shoulders suddenly relaxed, and he asked, “Is it some other disease? Is it serious?”
The doctor picked it up and rubbed the kitten’s bulging belly for a while. After a while, she said faintly:
“It should be due to overeating, vomiting, and possibly constipation. If you are worried, you can take another film to see it.”
Jiang Zhao: “…”
Being cautious, he still took the slip and went to the front desk to pay, ready to check again for Sister.
Then he sent a message to Sister Jun to report her safety, and received a reply shortly after:
“I just said how Xiao Hei and Yoyo kept tugging at my legs last night, looking at that grievance, it is estimated that the three cans I opened for them last night were all eaten by Sister alone.”
Sister Jun sent a speechless sweaty soybean expression, Jiang Zhao was amused, and just after replying, she saw Sister Jun say again: “I forgot, Sister’s owner said that he will go to the hospital soon. I have never been allowed to tell other people that Sister is his cat, but I remember that Sister Zhao said you know each other? Then it should be okay to tell you.”
The next second, Sister Jun typed out a very familiar name.
Jiang Zhao: “…”
In an instant, all the clues were linked together in my mind.
Sister Jun said before that the owner of Sister was busy, and the original name she gave her was not good.
Isn’t it? The actor’s daily life is of course busy, so he will keep his cat with Sister Jun, and how many ghosts can you find in the world to name his cat Sand Sculpture?
Furthermore, the photos of cats and cats that Xiao Siye usually sends are taken at random, and sometimes because of the straight man’s point of view, a good kitten is directly photographed as a little white pig. High-looking puppet cats all look alike, and there is a huge gap between the picture and the real cat here.
Who would expect, it’s actually Xiao Siye again!
Jiang Zhao walked to the first floor of the hospital in a speechless manner, ready to go to intercept his grievances.
“Hello, may I ask if a puppet cat was sent over just now? It’s a one-and-a-half-year-old girl.”
Jiang Zhao was taken aback as he went downstairs. He looked down at the corner of the stairs and happened to see Xiao Siye on the first floor who was talking to the front desk.
Although the man was wearing a mask and sunglasses, his tall and straight figure, outstanding clothes, and deep eyebrows made the little girl at the front desk blush, flipping through the registration book while peeking at Xiao Siye: ” What’s the name of your puppet?”
Xiao Siye said, “Sand…”
Jiang Zhao ran downstairs in three or two steps, trotted directly over, and grabbed Xiao Siye’s hand: “Follow me upstairs.”
Xiao Siye was stunned for a moment, then smiled at the front desk: “No, thank you.”
Sure enough, the handsome guys know each other!
In the waiting area on the second floor, Jiang Zhao and Xiao Siye were sitting together on the chairs in the waiting area in the corridor and looked at each other for a while.
“Sister doesn’t have cat plague.” Jiang Zhao said the most important thing first. “The doctor said that it may be because of overeating, and now he is undergoing the test.”
Xiao Siye’s expression was obviously relieved: “That’s good.”
“Sister Jun told me before that there is someone very close to Sister,” he said with a smile at the end of his eyes, “It’s you.”
Jiang Zhao’s expression froze. After a few seconds, he turned his head: “…If I knew it was your cat, I wouldn’t touch it.”
Xiao Siye raised his eyebrows: “Really?”
“But now I even belong to you,” he tilted his head slightly to Jiang Zhao, with a serious look, and said in a low voice, “Then my cat, isn’t it a buy-one-get-one-free?”
Jiang Zhao: “?”
He thought about it for a while along this line of thinking and actually felt that… makes sense.
“Then don’t call her Sand sculpture in the future,” Jiang Zhao immediately showed the majesty of the gold master, “…At least when you are in front of me, call her Sister.”
He really can’t stand it. This cute cat has such a damn name, can’t the little cat hear those words?
Xiao Siye nodded his head in a kind-hearted manner: “Okay.”
Not long after, the X-ray room opened, and the doctor came out with Sister in his arms. Jiang Zhao immediately stepped forward to pick it up, but stretched out his hand halfway, and glanced at Xiao Siye next to him.
The real owner is standing here, it seems inappropriate for him to hug the cat.
Xiao Siye patted his arm lightly: “You hold it.”
Jiang Zhao hugged Sister over. The kitten seemed to be in better spirits. She raised her ears as soon as she saw Xiao Siye, but she still liked Jiang Zhao’s arms, and without a few seconds of entanglement, she threw her own owner to one side and arched into Jiang Zhao’s bosom to form a snow-white dumpling.
Xiao Siye couldn’t help sighing: “Little thing, it’s really ruthless.”
Jiang Zhao looked at him smugly and hugged his sister tightly: “It’s personal charm.”
The test of x-ray will come out soon. Sister really has eaten too much and accumulated too much food, so she became listless.
The doctor prescribed some probiotics to relieve bowel movements, and instructed to cut off food for Sister. After buying what they needed, the two left the pet hospital with the air box.
It was around seven in the morning, and there were not many people at the entrance of the hospital. The early morning air was a little cool, and it kept digging into the sleeves and neck.
Jiang Zhao tightened his jacket and looked at Xiao Siye: “You will Sister home?”
Xiao Siye responded, “Well, I’m afraid she will steal other cats’ meals.”
Although he had already guessed the result, Jiang Zhao was still disappointed after hearing it.
After Sister comes home, he will not see her for a long time.
He shook his head: “Okay, then I’ll go back first.”
Xiao Siye didn’t move, and asked, “Aren’t you free today?”
When Jiang Zhao heard the words, he was about to leave and stopped, looking at him with a hint of doubt.
Xiao Siye picked up the air box in his arms, Sister ran to the edge of the cage, looking at Jiang Zhao with a pair of round blue eyes, with a milky “meow”.
“Since there’s nothing to do,” Xiao Siye said, “would you like to come to my house and play with the cat?”
