When Zheng Tan hurtled towards the rat, the rat suddenly discovered, to its surprise, the presence of a low-lying hunter!
The path to return to the side of the study and to find a place to hide in was somewhat long.
Even if it turned and sprinted with all its might, after a few steps, it would definitely be overtaken. Therefore, the rat’s plan was to directly rush into the bedroom.
Xiao Qu’s bedroom was a little bit more organized than the living room, but it was still a mess.
As far as the rats and cockroaches were concerned, the places they could take shelter were much greater in there.
So long as it reached the bedroom, Zheng Tan wouldn’t have any methods to catch it in the short term.
However, it no longer had the chance.
A black furry paw with sharp claws had stepped on its tail. Without waiting for it to move, the other paw had already pressed down on its neck.
The sound was so small that people had essentially no way of detecting.
The rat then dropped dead onto the floor, without even a twitch.
The entire process happened so quickly that the rat didn’t even have time to make a squeak.
Xiao Qu who had just reached the door felt a black shadow flash by his feet. Looking down, he saw a black cat, and under the cat’s paw was also a rat that no longer budged.
Xiao Qu almost immediately tossed out the cell phone and digital camcorder from his hands.
He looked at the cat, then at the rat, and then back to the unused camcorder in his hands.
“Fuck!” Xiao Qu cursed out loud.
It’s already over?
Shouldn’t the cat first chase the rat around the house, and then when it catches it play putty with it, and it will finally eat it when it’s nearly toyed to death
Fuck, before he had even said two sentences on the phone, it had already ended?
What kind of sick, clean and smooth claw technique is this?!
T-t-this… is freaking ridiculous! What the hell!
Who said that a cat that didn’t catch cockroaches can’t catch rats? Who is he going to pressure!
“Hey, Qu Qu, what’s going on over there?” The person on the other side of the phone thought something was wrong with Xiao Qu, so they asked.
“Hey, your mom!” Xiao Qu hung up the phone and turned on the living room lights so he could see better.
Xiao Qu took the two chopsticks that were sticking out from his unfinished lunch box and jabbed the rat.
Is it truly dead?
Feeling as if the chopsticks weren’t very suitable, Xiao Qu threw them away. He then went into the kitchen and grabbed the tongs that he hasn’t used since moving to this residence.
He grabbed the rat and swayed it around a few times, confirming that it had died. He then grabbed his digital camera again and took pictures of the rat from various different angles.
He immediately returned to his computer, no longer interested in playing the game. Instead, he hastily uploaded the picture onto the forum.
The images vividly described the scene that had just happened moments ago. The result was that a lot of people posted that they didn’t believe it.
There was an experienced cat owner who posted a few pictures.
Some of the rats in the pictures had holes bitten all over them, and some of them were left with incomplete limbs and tails, their torsos missing.
Xiao Qu turned his head and looked at the black cat that was currently stretching; that cat didn’t even want to give his prey a second look.
Xiao Qu continued to argue with the members on the forum, and at this time, his phone rang again. Xiao Qu used his shoulder to hold up the phone while he continued to type up a storm.
Zheng Tan circled around the house, not finding any other scents left by rats. He didn’t wait here silently anymore.
Zheng Tan was preparing to once again return to the chair and nap for a bit. Zheng Tan twitched his ears upon hearing singing coming from someone downstairs.
Leaving the room, Zheng Tan came to the balcony. Filtering out the sounds from Xiao Qu talking on the phone and his typing, he carefully listened and heard it with clarity this time
“Last night, ~last night’s stars, ~already falling, ~~fading away~into the distant Milky Way. ~~~”
Zheng Tan: “…”
They deliberately lowered their volume, but they couldn’t conceal the characteristics of their voice.
It was sung with vibrato in order to express the emotions of the song, and Zheng Tan made the connection of this to a ditty that was even older than him…
Mind-numbing, the damn bird downstairs wasn’t asleep in the middle of the night and started to sing nostalgic old songs again!
