Before Zhu Qing’an could say anything, he felt himself being embraced in a wide, warm embrace and bound tightly by a pair of large hands.
The hand that was tugging at his ankle was also ripped away.
Zhu Qing’an’s face was pale and dazed, he was still trying to catch up after the sudden attack.
Qin Hengyi circled him with his cold, thick tail, which brought up the cold seawater, unintentionally soaking through his thin clothes, revealing the boy’s slim figure.
“Don’t be afraid.” The man said in a low whisper.
Zhu Qing’an was still frozen. If it wasn’t for Qin Hengyi …… he would have been dragged into the deep sea area by now, his mouth and nose submerged in water. Even if this was a holographic game, but his five senses would still be there, he would suffocate, be hurt ……
The hand that yanked him had long disappeared, leaving only a faint ripple on the sea.
Zhu Qing’an: “…… what exactly is that thing ……”
This was a love game, by definition, shouldn’t it only be he and Qin Hengyi? How could there be other NPCs?
How could this NPC attack him? Did it have any role in advancing the game’s plot?
The tail swept over Zhu Qing’an’s sensitive waistline, and the man’s dark voice rang in his ears: “No matter what it is, I will protect you.”
Zhu Qing’an’s waist was caressed by the tail, to the point that it almost softened. He quickly changed the subject: : “Sir, I made you something to eat. Do you want to try it?”
The creamy white carp soup wasn’t ruined and was sitting on the shore. The taste hadn’t changed, although it was a bit cold.
Zhu Qing’an habitually picked up the bowl, picked up the spoon, and tried to feed Qin Hengyi like a little cub.
The man’s eyebrows jumped and his tail wiggled around, he was very happy.
After he finished feeding him. Qin Hengyi suddenly pulled up the teenager’s chin: “I’m full, what will you eat?”
Zhu Qing’an frowned, he didn’t understand the man’s meaning: “ah ……? What will I eat?”
He had eaten today …… matcha mousse, macarons ……
Qin Hengyi suddenly picked him up and let the teenager sit on his tail.
The teenager’s pants were thin and soaked with water. His skin had in direct contact with the hard scales and gradually gained sensitive red marks. The teenager also inadvertently muffled a grunt, like a kitten purring.
Qin Hengyi: “Don’t you like l!cking my tail? You can lick it now.”
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
Zhu Qing’an: “!!!”
His cheeks became red at a speed visible to the eye, and he instantly felt like he was sitting on a stove, but he couldn’t move. He shivered and said, “Qin, Mr. Qin …… I ……”
He didn’t have any reason to retort. At that time, he was the one who said that he liked to l!ck tails…………
But …… he had to heal the wounds on Qin Hengyi’s tail to proceed to the next step in the plot. That was the task.
Qin Hengyi saw Zhu Qing’an’s hesitant appearance, and his eyes darkened.
“Well ……” Zhu Qing’an gave up and nodded shamefully, “Thank you …… Mr. Qin.”
He obediently leaned down, his hands clasped his tail, and casually picked a hideous wound, he stretched out the tip of his tongue, and carefully l!cked it. The ambiguous sound of water accompanied by the sound of the waves filled the space.
Qin Hengyi looked at the teenager’s furry black head and his lips.
The kid liked to l!ck his tail.
Although the idea was dangerous …… but he thought about it and felt he could endure it, he let the other’s preference be satisfied.
With his sense of touch, he felt a few wounds slowly healing under the healing of his own body/liquid –
Just as he was about to open his eyes, the man suddenly retracted his tail with such force that he nearly fell over.
Qin Hengyi’s eyes were very red, extremely red, like a bloodthirsty vicious wolf in the night, just staring at Zhu Qing’an.
“Mr. Qin?” Zhu Qing’an was confused: “What’s wrong with you? Why won’t you let me …… l!ck your tail?”
After a long time, Qin Hengyi’s husky voice rang out, “Nothing.”
He put away his tail and didn’t let the teenager touch it.
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
Zhu Qing An didn’t know that he had inadvertently licked Qin Hengyi’s …… large **** covered by scales.
Nor did he know that Qin Hengyi, who treated him as a little lover, chose not to let him continue in order not to hurt him.
Zhu Qing’an was a bit baffled: “Ah ……”
But there were a few wounds that had healed under his care. His efforts weren’t in vain.
The man’s face was odd, and his red eyes were silently staring at Zhu Qing’an.
The teenager was standing in the shallow beach, the seawater covering his thighs.
Half of the hem was lifted up, with his white skin revealed. The sea water slid down his cheeks and disappeared into his shirt.
His eyes were also wet and was filled with aggravation for not letting him continue.
…… this child.
With difficulty, Qin Hengyi closed his eyes.
It was the middle of the night, the sea temperature had decreased a lot.
Qin Hengyi then let Zhu Qing’an leave.
After Zhu Qing’an left, the man was alone in the vast empty sea.
The sea wasn’t half-bright, and he couldn’t see his fingers. Only the cold, salty sea breeze and cold remained.
Qin Hengyi returned to the stone he often leaned on.
His tail was very long and beautiful, immersed in seawater, it was like a long, dangerous snake lurking.
He was about to close his eyes, but his vision was suddenly disturbed by a bright light.
This kind of place …… shouldn’t have any light.
He hesitantly opened his eyes –
The tide receded. The half of the beach that was buried by the sea was exposed.
The fluorescent stones that Zhu Qing’an had left behind earlier also appeared.
Some of them were immersed in seawater, and some of them were fused with the sand. The light emitted was soft and bright, like a group of soft little stars, woven into a large bright and brilliant little sea of stars, illuminating this oppressive dark sea.
This sea, he didn’t know how many thousands of years, no sunlight had shone in.
Until this moment today.
Qin Hengyi looked at all this, inexplicably frozen.
Large pieces of forgotten memories came tumbling back.
There was a time when he was a child …… he was in the dark.
The cold and obscure seawater.
Confusion, loneliness, fear ……
and never-ending abuse.
No one came with him, no one saved him.
At that time, he didn’t know why he was treated this way.
He couldn’t quite remember how he escaped.
He only remembered that he was –
He was longing for a little light in that darkness.
A little bit would have been nice.
Qin Hengyi’s dark red eyes reflected the bright stars in front of him.
After several years, he finally got the light he wanted.
Qin Hengyi swam toward the center of the sea. A few fluorescent stones were blown far away by the wind and waves, floating alone on the surface of the sea.
He picked up the fluorescent stones that were scattered and protected them in his hands as if they were precious.
He recognised this kind of stone, it was from an unknown small planet of fluorescent stones.
Little children loved this little thing.
Qin Hengyi was about to swim back when he suddenly saw …… the light reflected a little blurred object, which raised a heavy ripple. A fishtail surfaced out of the water and went back in.
It waa likely the thing that tried to drag Zhu Qing’an into the water before.
The man frowned and swam over.
Zhu Qing’an took off his holographic helmet and let out a deep breath.
His body was covered in cold sweat, so it was clear how exciting everything he had experienced …… was. But it was also deeply fascinating.
The man’s seductive voice, and the cool touch of his scales, still seemed to linger around him.
Zhu Qing’an changed his clothes, laid back on the bed, and turned on the light computer.
The banquet held by the Marine Animal Protection Association was coming up, and the banquet had already announced the list of participants.
In this banquet, everyone had the opportunity to communicate with each other.
Zhu Qing’an scanned the ……
He abruptly found someone on the list.
This also represented…..
Zhu Qing’an was going to this banquet, he had the opportunity to ask him about …… the game False Love and what it was all about. Why was it always helping him for free? What did it want?
The game technology workmanship of “False Love” was certainly at the forefront of the empire. It was impossible that this big man hadn’t handled the production of this game.
The more Zhu Qing’an looked thought about it, the more he looked forward to the banquet.
Zhu Qing’an felt more and more hopeful for the coming of the banquet. He laid in bed reading Weibo for a while, but it was boring.
It may be because the holographic mode of False Love was too exciting, which made him feel that everything in reality was a bit boring.
The game’s plot had all kinds of scenes that were fascinating.
For example, Qin Hengyi was subjected to human / body modification / transformation as a child, he was transformed into a mermaid, in this setting.
Why was he treated this way? How did he later …… recover as an adult.
Zhu Qing’an wrinkled his brow, he couldn’t understand.
He opened the star network search, and very skillfully and sharply typed in the search box – “false love game pass tips.
He played a lot of these types of adult games, and in the end he always ended up searching for game tips, game pass cheats. Otherwise, he really couldn’t play.
Starnet loaded for a while.
[Your search for “False Love” Pass Tips” shows zero entries. Please check if you made a mistake.]
He couldn’t find it on the internet.
It meant that there was no cheat for this game on the internet?
He wanted to ask a different question.
[False Love game cheats]
[Your search for “False Love” game cheats shows zero entries. Please check if you made a mistake.]
Zhu Qing’an: “…………”
Zhu Qing’an searched several times, but no information was found.
It was as if the game, False Love, was some kind of military machine/secret.
Finally, in his last search, he searched for some fragmented information.
[Why did “False Love” Qin Hengyi turn into a mermaid?]
He found three entries.
Zhu Qing An was happy and focused to read.
–The content of the search wasn’t the same as what he wanted. It even made one wonder if Starnet had pumped something from some corner into what Zhu Qing’an was searching for.
[Empire News Flash: News on the progress of human modification of mermaid experiments.]
[Empire News Flash: The Extinction of Artificial Intelligence AI.]
[Empire News Flash: Artificial Intelligence AI Consciousness Body Destruction Ceremony.]
The publication time of these things were still hundreds of years ago.
Zhu Qing’an sighed out a sigh and exited the page.
But despite his disappointment, Zhu Qing’an still glanced at these news articles.
Human …… transformation?
Qin Hengyi …… was transformed into a mermaid, and thus left a knot in his heart that could never be opened.
He clicked in to see –
A mermaid was an ancient creature that lived in the ancient Earth era, with unparalleled power.
As the Empire needed to fight with the armies of the outer galaxy and fight on the ocean planets, a large number of mermaid bodies were created.
But just a physical empty shell, they needed to transfer human consciousness in it.
Few people were willing to transfer their consciousness to the body of an unfamiliar creature, and also to fight with the army of aliens.
The news also didn’t mention how many people transferred their consciousness, or how they transferred their consciousness …..
It only mentioned that the first provider of the transferred consciousness was from an intelligent AI science lab called “Wing”.
After that, the news ended.
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
He didn’t take the article to heart, after all, things on the Internet …… he didn’t know whether it was true or not.
Even if it was true, it was hundreds of years ago. It had nothing to do with the current imperial masses.
He put down the light computer and rubbed his eyes that were a little tired. He had to get up and go to the cub living area.
Zhu Qing’an wanted to see the newly adopted sea creature cubs, before going, he didn’t forget to carry a bucket of small dried fish that the cubs loved to eat.
The sea creature cubs looked very much like the baby seals of ancient earth, slippery and round, in the small pool drenched with a thin layer of water, theu flapped their little paws and chirped.
Zhu Qing’an looked at them and felt much better. He fed the dried fish to their mouths one by one: “Good boys.”
The young cubs blinked their beady eyes and looked at the teenager.
After feeding them, the teenager went for a drive around the other cubs’ living area to make sure there were no fights and conflicts between them before returning to his bedroom.
After that, there was nothing for Zhu Qing’an to do.
He stared at the holographic helmet by the bed with itchy hands ….
This game, although it didn’t cheat him with krypton[money], but it cheated his mind.
He thought so in his heart, but still obediently picked up the holographic helmet and put it on.
Zhu Qing’an was lying on the bed as his consciousness sank. Then he was transported to another space.
He opened his eyes and he saw was no longer the lurid and gloomy dark space.
Instead, it was …… a beach illuminated by a little light.
The original appearance of the beach’s golden sand, clear and clean seawater, was revealed.
All thanks to the large number of fluorescent stones he brought, making this place a sea of stars.
But Zhu Qing’an glanced at the sky.
He wanted the sea to really have light ……
He still needed to see sunlight shining in.
“Qin Hengyi?” Zhu Qing’an gently called the man’s name.
Immediately he finished speaking, he was carried into a warm embrace, a familiar dark voice sounded: “An. I caught the thing that dragged you into the water.”
