Pei Feng returned to the bedroom after taking a shower. The time was already 1 a.m. but he didn’t feel sleepy.
His master’s pheromones were originally a refreshing mint smell. In addition, he had just taken a cold shower for half an hour and his brain was now particularly energetic. It was even a bit excited.
Pei Feng simply sat in front of the computer, opened the web page and searched for his master’s ‘pheromone disorder.’
He really couldn’t help worrying about his master’s condition. The bruised arm made him feel distressed whenever he thought about it.
However, there was no useful information on the Internet and it was mixed with various advertisements. For such a rare disease, was it necessary to look through professional medical literature? Pei Feng thought of this and took out his phone to send a WeChat message to his father, who was a doctor. “Dad, are you there? Are you sleeping?”
Pei Yan was on the night shift at the hospital. He received the message from his son and couldn’t help wondering, “I’m here. By the way, today is your birthday, right?” He sent a red envelope and said, “Happy birthday.”
Pei Feng was helpless. “My birthday was yesterday and it is already early morning.”
Pei Yan replied, “Really? I was on duty all night and I almost forgot the date.”
Pei Feng gently pressed a hand to his temple. As a son, he was treated like a phone bill. His parents rarely cared about his thoughts and he was free since he was a child.
Other children had to discuss with their families about playing the game. Meanwhile, he went to Xing City to find Jiang Shaoyu to worship him as a teacher and his parents said openly, “Your life is your own decision. You can do anything as long as you don’t break the law.”
Maybe it was because his parents were busy with work and he had been relatively lacking in love since he was a child. After coming to ACE, his master treated him well, teaching him hand-in-hand, taking him to familiarize himself with various firearms and celebrating his birthday… so, in his heart, Jiang Shaoyu’s weight became heavier and heavier.
Pei Feng withdrew from his thoughts and said seriously, “Dad, do you have any professional literature on pheromone disorder over there? It is authoritative literature that introduces the disease, treatment plan and other side-effects.”
Pei Yan said, “I am a surgeon, not a pheromones major. However, if you want literature on this subject, I can help you find it.” He paused and wondered, “Why are you suddenly asking this question? Do you have a pheromone disorder?”
Pei Feng hurriedly clarified. “A friend of mine has this disease.”
Pei Yan was curious. “An alpha friend or omega friend?”
“…It is an omega.”
Pei sent a meme of ‘sudden realization.’
His father had always been abnormal and Pei Feng didn’t bother explaining it to him carefully. After waiting a while, the other person sent him several documents. They were all authoritative medical literature published in world-class medical journals, but they were all in English.
Pei Feng thanked him and translated the document into Chinese using a translator. He carefully checked it from the beginning.
He wasn’t a medical specialist. There were many medical terms in the literature that he simply couldn’t understand.
But after reading the whole article, he could probably understand.
An omega pheromone disorder was a rare disease when the gland differentiated during puberty. They had physiologically differentiated into an omega but the pheromones contained some of the characteristics of an alpha.
Such an omega wouldn’t have the effect of ‘opposite sex attraction’ on an alpha. Instead, it was a ‘same sex repellence.’ They repelled and attacked any alphas that approached, making it difficult to be completely marked by an alpha. Simply put, his master was physiologically an omega but his pheromones and psychological state were both alpha.
In addition to the difficulty of accepting an alpha’s marking, their pheromones fluctuated throughout the year. The solution was ‘short-acting inhibitors.’ Long-acting inhibitors didn’t work, so short-acting medicine had to be used daily and monitored and controlled at all times.
This was also consistent with his master’s long-term injection of inhibitors.
Pei Feng kept reading on and his expression became uglier. The side effects of long-term inhibitor injection included but were not limited to one. Dysfunction of the metabolic system and deterioration of the body’s ability to heal itself. 2. The digestive system dysfunction, slow gastrointestinal peristalsis and poor nutrient absorption. 3. A low mood, depression and even suicidal tendencies. 4. It still had to be clinically tested if the injection of a large number of inhibitors would affect the lifespan of an omega.
Pei Feng’s heart trembled slightly. He had guessed correctly. The long-term injection of medicine really had side effects!
When his master returned to China, he felt that his master seemed to have lost a lot of weight over the years. His mental state wasn’t particularly good. Moreover, Pei Feng really couldn’t understand his master’s eating habits. He ate vegetarian food and drank porridge every day. If adults ate like this for a long time, how could the nutritional needs of the body keep up?!
Now it all had an explanation.
It was all because of the ‘pheromone disorder’ and the long-term injection of inhibitors.
Pei Feng wished he could take on all these pains for his master when thinking of his master living abroad by himself for the past few years, silently giving himself injections every day.
Pei Feng took a deep breath. He quickly opened a document and his hands tapped on the keyboard. Since he was 14 years old, he had never disobeyed his master’s orders. Today, for the first time, he didn’t listen to Jiang Shaoyu.
Jiang Shaoyu asked him to give him an injection but he simply marked his master. Even if his master was angry, he didn’t regret it.
Three words appeared in the middle of a Word Document: Self-Criticism Document
It was called a self-criticism, but in fact, Pei Feng listed the descriptions of the disease from the medical literature one by one. He wanted his master to know that he was willing to help his master through the difficulties.
An alpha’s pheromones had no side effects for omegas. Wasn’t it much stronger than daily injections?
It was late at night when he finished watching it. Pei Feng rubbed his swollen temples and stared at the computer for a while.
The relationship between master and apprentice could never return to where it was.
In the past, Jiang Shaoyu simply took care of him, guided him and regarded him as a successor, teaching him everything. Meanwhile, he respected, admired and looked up to his master. He was his master’s number one fan.
Now he had grown up.
He developed more feelings for his master. He wanted to use his ability to protect his master and he even wanted to… monopolize his master.
Pei Feng thought it over and his mind suddenly opened up. So what if he was disrespectful to his master? So what about the following offenses? No matter what outsiders thought of them, he only knew that Jiang Shaoyu was the person he wanted to protect.
That night, Pei Feng’s dream repeatedly replayed the way he got along with his master over the years. He had forgotten all the things from elementary school and middle school, but everything about his master was clearly engraved in his mind. Every word that God Wing said and every action taught to him was as clear and real as yesterday.
In fact, he should’ve figured out a long time ago that such paranoid admiration couldn’t simply be described as a ‘fan.’ Adoration was more appropriate.
He wanted to be Jiang Shaoyu’s partner.
He could watch his master every day and take care of his master personally.
The next morning, Pei Feng woke up and went to the supermarket to buy some fresh vegetables and lean meat. He turned on the stove and made a bowl of porridge for his master according to the recipe. Then he went to Room 404 and knocked on the door.
There was no response from inside the room, so he entered the password and went in. Jiang Doudou heard familiar footsteps and ran to the door to meet him. He barked twice and immediately wagged his tail to lead Pei Feng to the bedroom.
Jiang Shaoyu lay on the bed, his brow furrowed.
Pei Feng stepped forward quickly and reached out to test his forehead. Sure enough, it was a low-grade fever. It was the same as last time.
After the marking was completed during the Spring Festival, Jiang Shaoyu had a low grade fever for a day. It was probably because his body was adapting to the invasion of alpha pheromones and adjusting itself. Then he got a fever.
Pei Feng turned around and grabbed a towel. He soaked it with cold water and gently placed it on his master’s forehead.
Jiang Shaoyu’s brain was groggy. The cold towel made him sober up a bit. He struggled to open his eyes and met Pei Feng’s concerned gaze. “Master, is it uncomfortable? Do I need to take you to the hospital?”
Jiang Shaoyu frowned and his voice was hoarse. “No need. It is a low fever like last time. It will be fine in one day.”
Pei Feng said, “Then eat something, replenish your strength and rest well.”
Jiang Shaoyu struggled to get up, but Pei Feng helped him sit up and put a pillow at his waist. He saw that his master was pale and had no strength, so Pei Feng said softly, “Let me feed you.”
Before Jiang Shaoyu could refuse, the spoon full of porridge was raised to his lips. It had a very fragrant smell. It was porridge with diced vegetables and shredded meat. The national team’s cafeteria didn’t have this type of porridge for breakfast. Did Pei Feng cook it himself?
Jiang Shaoyu had a severe headache and didn’t care about little things. He opened his mouth to eat the porridge with an expressionless face.
Pei Feng continued to feed the other person porridge.
Seeing the appearance of his master opening his mouth and eating the porridge one bite at a time, Pei Feng couldn’t help feeling a bit… like he wanted to kiss his master.
The thought that suddenly appeared made Pei Feng’s heart jump slightly. He hurriedly looked away.
After eating a bowl of porridge, Jiang Shaoyu whispered, “Thank you.”
Pei Feng smiled and put away the bowl. “You’re welcome.”
He found that he was very happy to take care of his master. The calm and powerful Jiang Shaoyu also had times when he needed someone to take care of him. After all, humans weren’t steel. No matter how powerful they were, they would get sick and tired. He really hoped that he could always stay by his master’s side when his master needed someone to take care of him in the future.
Pei Feng was thinking wildly when Jiang Shaoyu frowned slightly. He looked at Pei Feng and said, “Last night, you…”
Pei Feng hurriedly lowered his head to admit his mistake. “I made a mistake last night and I wrote a self-criticism. Do you want to read it now?”
Jiang Shaoyu: “……”
Pei Feng took out the self-criticism from his pocket. It was neatly written and filled the page. His attitude of admitting his mistake was very correct.
In fact, Jiang Shaoyu didn’t blame his apprentice. He was also wrong last night. He could obviously refuse with a firm attitude and then Xiao Pei wouldn’t have been so bold as to forcibly mark him. He was the one who wasn’t firm enough. The moment Pei Feng bit him, he coveted the warmth of the other person’s pheromones and acquiesced.
The two of them half-heartedly completed an intimate mark.
Later, Jiang Shaoyu felt a bit regretful. As a master, how could he regard his apprentice as a ‘pheromone tool person’. He was an omega master and he let his alpha apprentice mark him… it was like seducing his simple apprentice to sleep with him. He had a strong sense of guilt in his heart.
He wanted to have a good chat with Pei Feng. As a result, Pei Feng took the initiative to write a self-criticism.
Jiang Shaoyu looked at Pei Feng’s self-criticism with complicated feelings.
The first paragraph sincerely admitted his mistake. “Last night, Master asked me to help with the injections. I could obviously inject you, but I didn’t want to see Master suffer. I went against Master’s wishes and semi-forcibly marked Master. It is my fault and I’m very sorry.”
“However, if there is a next time, I will still do it.”
Jiang Shaoyu: “……?”
Wait, was this a self-criticism? He was sorry but he dared to do it next time.
Jiang Shaoyu continued to look down with a calm expression.
“I checked the medical literature on pheromone disorder overnight to find out how terribly this disease afflicts omegas. The long-term injection of short-acting inhibitors is like drinking poison to quench thirst. It treats the symptoms but not the root cause. It will damage all aspects of your body’s functions and even affects your lifespan.”
Pei Feng wrote hundreds of words freely, listing the various ‘sequelae’ and ‘side effects’ described in the literature. Moreover, after polishing and processing it, his description was even more terrifying than the medical literature.
Finally, he concluded, “I know Master has scruples and you are worried that I will be in a relationship in the future. Once I meet someone I like, the other person will mind that I once had such an ambiguous relationship with Master. However, for me, Master’s health is the most important thing and I have no intention of falling in love with others. Since Master doesn’t reject my mark, I am happy to continue helping Master solve the problem of pheromones in the future. You don’t need to have any psychological burden. I am voluntary.”
Jiang Shaoyu saw this and couldn’t laugh or cry.
This wasn’t a self-criticism. He was making a contract of ‘I will make Master in the future’, right?
This was clearly telling Jiang Shaoyu, ‘Look, inhibitors have so many side effects and do so much harm to you. I am completely harmless and have no side effects. Instead of injecting, it is better to choose me.’
Jiang Shaoyu frowned and looked at him. “You have hard wings and don’t want to listen to me, right?”
Pei Feng told him, “I listen to you in everything else but in this matter, you have to listen to me.”
The alpha’s eyes were very gentle. He looked into Jiang Shaoyu’s eyes and his voice deliberately softened. “Master, I have never begged you, but I am begging you for this matter. Stop torturing yourself. There is clearly a better way, right? If you overcome the psychological barrier, the process of marking is quick. I’ll help, you?”
Jiang Shaoyu: “………”
This guy’s behavior was really terrible. Jiang Shaoyu’s psychological defense line collapsed in an instant.
In fact, Pei Feng was quite right. The side effects of the inhibitors were becoming more and more obvious. No matter how he chose to look at it, he should let Pei Feng mark him.
It was just that the psychological obstacle… it made Jiang Shaoyu uncomfortable.
Master and disciple desire? Wasn’t it an offense?
A master omega asking his apprentice alpha to help him solve his physical problems?
It was really embarrassing if this spread out.
Jiang Shaoyu was silent for a long time before saying seriously, “Okay, before the World Series, you can temporarily help me solve the problem of pheromones. Don’t tell anyone about this and spread it out. It is bad for our reputation.”
Pei Feng smiled. “I will obey the order!”
He resisted the urge to hug his cold master and he whispered, “Master, rest well. This afternoon, I will help you supervise the training of the national team. If they ask, I will say that Master is watching the game videos in the dormitory, okay?”
Jiang Shaoyu nodded. “Yes, I’ll sleep first. I’ll come back for the training match in the evening.”
Pei Feng helped his master sleep and covered up with a quilt.
Once he turned around and went out, Jiang Doudou followed Pei Feng to the door as usual. Pei Feng chuckled and picked up the brown little dog. He touched the dog’s head and said softly, “Before, it didn’t seem right to say that I am your brother. In the future, I will also be your father, okay?”
Jiang Doudou: “Bark bark?”
Pei Feng smiled and said, “I’ll buy canned food for you. It is decided.”
Jiang Doudou wagged his tail happily and seemed to agree to Pei Feng’s suggestion.
