As soon as they remembered how that lynx had precisely the same expressions as their Master did when glaring at people, the two of them became terribly horrified.
This was why Wei Leng wasn’t particularly surprised by Zheng Tan’s various expressions when he first met him.
Rubbing the goosebumps that had risen on his arms, Wei Leng gave the man in a police uniform a kick. “Bro, you should go back and take care of your things.
This case must be hectic enough for you already.”
“True,” the man in the police uniform said as he put away his things.
His face looked serious, but his speech had an air of self-satisfaction: “If I can’t solve these cases, I’ll be too embarrassed to climb the ladder again.”
“Narcissism is an illness. You should go get it treated.”
“Haven’t you read the newspapers? Narcissistic people have the capacity to become leaders.
Napoleon, Roosevelt, Stalin, Edison, Carnegie, Rockefeller, Ford, and Hitler all share narcissistic personality traits.
” The policeman whistled as he left, and as he walked out the door, he added, “You don’t have to return my daughter’s bike.
You can just buy a new one for her later since it’s almost her birthday. Remember, it has to be the collapsible type.”
Even though Zheng Tan was poking at the bag of beef jerky for the entire time, he kept his ears perked up to listen to the conversation between the two men.
It seemed like the two were rather remarkable people, and had in fact trained under the same Master.
After the policeman left, Wei Leng made a bowl of instant noodles, grabbed a fistful of beef jerky and placed it on the coffee table. He said to Zheng Tan, “I’m going to catch some sleep.
If you’re hungry, you can eat beef jerky. I don’t have anything else for you to eat anyways. Also, it’s best if you don’t go outside. This area isn’t like the place you stayed at earlier.
Do you know why there aren’t any cats and dogs around here? It’s because the construction workers caught them all and cooked them up.
There’s a lot of people here who love to eat “Boiled Alive Cat.”. Even if you’ve got talent, the best you can do is bully a small dog.
Zheng Tan: “…….”
After staying in this danger-filled district for a night, on the second day, Wei Leng gathered his belongings and rode his bike towards Chu Hua University.
Zheng Tan once again squatted in the basket of some girl’s pink bicycle.
The nice part was that as they got closer to the urban district, the road started to flatten out, and apart from the slight discomfort from the wind, it wasn’t all that bad.
That was, if you didn’t count a certain noisy person’s constant blabbering.
From as soon as they set out, all the way until they reached the street by Chu Hua University, Wei Leng had criticized Zheng Tan for all sorts of different things.
“Poor jumping ability, sluggish reflexes, hearing which has regressed to that of a pig’s. You didn’t even notice when someone walked up to your side…”
Zheng Tan really wanted to retort, but it was a pity he didn’t have the ability.
All he could do was make weird cat noises, so while on this road, bystanders were confronted with the scene of a man riding a girl’s bike while jabbering nonstop.
Every time he uttered a few sentences, the cat in the basket would meow once, as if the man and the cat were having an argument.
The bike ride from the New Technology Development District to Chu Hua University took at least two hours. However, to Zheng Tan, it didn’t look like Wei Leng was particularly tired.
Wei Leng had rented an apartment near Chu Hua University.
He had already bought a house that wasn’t too far away from Chu Hua University, but it was still being renovated and would take at least half a year before he could move in.
That was why he first found a place and already paid rent there for half a year.
The mother and daughter pair that Zheng Tan met last time at the large lawn were Wei Leng’s war comrade’s wife and daughter.
That war comrade unfortunately had lost his life on a mission, so Wei Leng had always been helping to look after the family.
After he was discharged, he frequently came over to check up on those two.
The apartment Wei Leng had rented wasn’t very far from the Eastern Residence, and after exiting the East University Gate, it was only a five minute walk away.
Many students rented apartments in this area.
When Wei Leng arrived at his rental apartment, he let Zheng Tan get off. “You can go home by yourself. When you have free time, you should train your ability.
As a cat that loves to wander around everywhere, if you don’t have any skills, you’ll be turned into ‘Boiled Alive Cat’ sooner or later.
In the mornings I go to the university for a jog, and around six or seven o’clock. If you want to join me for a jog, that will be fine.”
After saying that, Wei Leng locked his bike and went upstairs, not caring whether the cat he had ditched would be snatched away by strangers.
Wei Leng felt that if this cat could be kidnapped so easily, then it deserved it. At least it would prevent him from wasting his time on training it.
Zheng Tan was rather familiar with the surroundings, and he didn’t pay any mind to the calls from the students walking by. He avoided them as he walked towards the East University Gate.
“That cat is awfully cold.”
“Totally. It’s nothing like that tabby cat that was rolling around two days ago.”
“Maybe all black cats are like that?”
“No way, my aunt also has a black cat, and it likes to act spoiled, unlike this one…”
Zheng Tan listened to the conversation that two female students were having behind him, and his ears twitched.
He wasn’t in a good mood right now, and they wanted him to roll around? Act spoiled? Go to hell!
What he could not refute was that, when Zheng Tan climbed over the wall around the Eastern Residential Quad, he suddenly felt much calmer and at peace. Could this be called a sense of belonging?
Before Zheng Tan could finish with his sigh, the sound of a dog’s bark overturned Zheng Tan’s sense of mind in agitation.
Zheng Tan could recognize this dog’s bark. He hadn’t heard it for a whole month, so the residences here had been rather peaceful for an entire month.
Zheng Tan tilted his head and looked, and a dog was presently biting a plastic water bottle and running in his direction. His owners chasing from behind.
This dog was called Sahara, which has nothing do with the famous desert. The name came from the fact it was a mixed breed.
The rumor was that the little brat was a mix between three breeds: samoyed (sa), husky (ha), and labrador (ra).
The appearance of Sahara’s face was as solemn as that of a husky’s, but the corner’s of its mouth were to the contrary curved up like a samoyed.
When these two qualities were combined, no matter how you looked at it, it appeared wretched.
He had inherited the smarts of a Labrador, but how was it that it was only intelligent at the worst of moments?
For instance, right now, Sahara was biting on a water bottle his owners had just bought and was thrashing it about all over the place. Maybe it just liked being chased by its owners.
The plastic water bottle had a hole that from being chewed on by Sahara’s fangs.
The water inside shot out from the water pressure, and Sahara was coincidently running past Zheng Tan just as it burst.
Zheng Tan didn’t have time to duck, and he was caught right in the bullseye.
Could it be, that his reflexes were really that bad?
The culprit already ran far away with the leaking water bottle in its mouth, and Zheng Tan shook the water off his body.
Before he had the time to catch his breath, he then heard the sound of flapping wings.
On the wall of the residential quad behind him, a blue figure descended.
“Yesterday when I passed in front of your house~ You dumped a bucket of water~ Splashed on my leather shoes~ The pedestrians on the streets~ Laughed and laughed hehehe~~”
Zheng Tan: “……”
He suddenly really wanted ear wax.
