Jiang Rong frowned and asked, “What is the origin of that Pei Feng?”
Jiang Shaocheng hurriedly explained, “His father is a doctor and his mother is a designer. The conditions of his family aren’t bad. He is a big streamer with tens of millions of fans. Now he has become the captain of the national team.”
Qin Hui was worried. “He has so many fans that he is like a star. Won’t such an alpha be very frivolous? I heard that the private lives of those stars are quite messy. I still hope that Ah Yu can find someone who is devoted to him.”
Xu Yan smiled. “Mom, you are overthinking. E-sports players spend time on their computers every day. They have no time to go out and mess around. He is Ah Yu’s perspective. I think that with Ah Yu’s vision, he won’t accept people with a bad personality as his apprentice.”
Jiang Shaocheng frowned. “Why do you always help speak for Pei Feng?”
Xu Yan looked innocent. “Why do you have such a big opinion about Pei Feng?”
Jiang Shaocheng was stared at by his wife and immediately shut up.
Winter in Xing City was a bit cold. Jiang Shaoyu wrapped his coat around himself and walked along the lake.
He knew that his family meant well. He really suffered from taking injections every day, and the side effects of the drugs also made him lose a lot of weight. If he could find a suitable alpha, not only would he solve the problem of the pheromone disorder but he could also have a happy marriage. His family would also feel more at ease.
He just resented the feeling of being pushed into blind dates. It was as if he was a slow-moving commodity that his family was trying to sell.
Blind dates? Don’t even think about it. Even if it meant dying alone, he wouldn’t go out to eat or chat with a strange alpha. He really couldn’t stay in such an embarrassing situation for even a minute.
He had a clear plan for his life. When he returned to China, he signed a three year contract with the league and promised to help the league bring out an excellent national team, laying a solid foundation for the national team. Now he had taken the first step. There were still many things for him to deal with in the next year and the year after.
Once the three year contract period expired, he would no longer be the coach of the national team. At that time, he would take Doudou to travel around and live a relaxed, comfortable, and free life. Wasn’t this more interesting than going on blind dates?
As for the matter of finding an alpha to be with, he wouldn’t reject it if he could find an alpha he liked and was very compatible with. However, this possibility was too low. Jiang Shaoyu always felt that he was ‘frigid’ and a bit lacking emotionally. He was like a piece of ice that couldn’t hold any heat.
He wasn’t actually interested in alphas. He didn’t even have any needs in this regard in the past few years. He thought it didn’t matter and he was good alone.
Xiao Pei’s enthusiasm made him a bit confused. It was the first time he had been pursued so clearly by an alpha. When he went home this time, in addition to meeting his parents and brother, there was another thing he wanted to do. It was to separate from Pei Feng for a while so they could calm down and think about it carefully. Then he could give Pei Feng a clear answer.
Procrastination wasn’t the answer. Cutting through the mess with a sharp knife was more appropriate. After all, he would still be the coach next year, and Pei Feng would continue to be the captain.
Jiang Shaoyu walked around the lake and returned home at dinner time.
During the time he was out on a walk, Xu Yan had convinced his parents not to interfere with Jiang Shaoyu’s affairs. As an omega, Xu Yan could understand Jiang Shaoyu’s aversion to being pushed into a blind date.
After Jiang Shaoyu went home, everyone tacitly didn’t mention this matter again.
Jiang Rong looked awkward and changed the subject. “Ahem, it is good that you have a career you love. I don’t understand your game, but being able to win the world championship is also a win for the country. Do whatever you want to do in the future. If you need help at home, just ask your older brother.”
Jiang Shaoyu nodded. “Yes. I signed a contract with the league and will be the coach for at least two more years.”
Jiang Shaocheng said, “By the way, do you remember the Korean coach Cha Injun? I took a look at a Korean website today and found that he was exposed for tax evasion, bribery, and many other crimes. He was fired from the national team. He will probably be facing a lawsuit.”
Jiang Shaoyu was stunned and looked at his brother in a confused manner. “I’ve been busy giving interviews lately and didn’t pay attention to him. Where did you get the news?”
Jiang Shaocheng answered, “I asked my secretary to pay attention to the news in the e-sports circle when he has time. He told me about it. There must be someone behind this matter. I don’t know who uncovered Coach Cha’s schemes. They are obviously targeting him.”
Jiang Shaoyu said coldly, “It isn’t surprising. He used despicable means to bring down the former coach. In the end, he ended up with the same fate.”
There were some people with evil intentions in every circle. After Coach Cha stepped down, it was still unknown who the next coach of South Korea would be. Therefore, the national team’s training next year should still be taken seriously.
Jiang Shaoyu stayed at home for a week. His parents didn’t mention the blind dates again, which made him feel much more relaxed.
On New Year’s Day, January 1st, several members of the Jiang family celebrated the holiday today. His older brother’s son also came back from vacation and excitedly hugged Jiang Shaoyu. He begged his uncle to take him to play in the rankings while saying, “Uncle is the idol of all my classmates!”
There were many elementary school students playing games. Jiang Shaoyu’s popularity among the student group had reached the top level and he had countless fans.
Seeing that Jiang Shaoyu was so popular, Jiang Rong completely let go of his prejudices and approved his son’s choice.
That night, Jiang Shaoyu was setting off fireworks with his nephew in the yard when his phone rang. It was a New Year greeting from Pei Feng. “Master, Happy New Year! When will you be back? Doudou said he misses you~”
In fact, I miss you.
Jiang Shaoyu replied, “I will be back tomorrow.”
“Great. I’ll pick you up at the airport!”
Jiang Shaoyu wanted to refuse. However, Jiang Doudou was at Pei Feng’s place, and he happened to need to have a chat with Xiao Pei. Therefore, he sent over his flight number.
At 2 o’clock in the afternoon on the next day, Jiang Shaoyu took a flight to the capital. Unexpectedly, as soon as he arrived at the airport, it started raining heavily in Xing City.
It rarely rained so heavily in winter in the south. Many planes were hovering in the sky and traffic was seriously affected. Announcements continued to ring out. “We are sorry to inform you that due to weather reasons, your flight temporarily can’t take off. The departure time is still to be determined.”
Jiang Shaoyu was sitting in the waiting hall. He looked at the continuously delayed flights on the screen. Then thinking about how Pei Feng was going to pick him up at the airport, he immediately sent a message. “Xiao Pei, my flight was delayed. You don’t have to pick me up. I don’t know when I can take off.”
Pei Feng didn’t reply. Around half an hour later, his phone lit up. “It’s okay, Master. I’ve arrived at the airport. I’ll wait for you~”
It seemed that he left for the airport early. He was already at the airport when he saw the message.
Jiang Shaoyu frowned and looked at the delay announcement on the screen, feeling a bit upset. This was the first time he felt so anxious and it was because he had a person waiting for him at the capital’s airport in the distance.
Minute by minute passed on the clock. Jiang Shaoyu’s brow furrowed deeper and deeper. Finally, he sent a message to Pei Feng. “Go back. I haven’t taken off yet.”
Pei Feng replied, “It doesn’t matter. I’ll wait for you.”
“Why are you so stubborn?”
Pei Feng sent a smiling emoji. “I have nothing to do at home anyway. I’ll just scroll through videos at the airport and wait for Master.”
His wings became stiff and he would no longer listen to his master? Jiang Shaoyu was about to call him to give him a lecture, when he heard the news of flight boarding from the speaker. His phone lit up immediately with a message. “I saw on the APP that Master’s flight has started to board!!”
The continuous exclamation marks showed how happy he was.
Jiang Shaoyu said helplessly, “…Okay, see you later.”
The flight was originally set to take off at 2 o’clock, but it ended up taking off at 7 o’clock. It was already 9 o’clock when it arrived at the capital. Pei Feng had waited at the airport for a full seven hours.
He wasn’t impatient at all. Once he saw Jiang Shaoyu coming out of the airport, he immediately walked over with a smile on his face and helped take Jiang Shaoyu’s luggage.
Seeing the smiling face of the young man in front of him, Jiang Shaoyu suddenly felt warmth in his heart.
This was what it felt like to be waited for.
No matter how long it took, Xiao Pei would patiently wait here just to see his master as soon as possible. It was a bit silly, but also a bit cute.
Jiang Shaoyu’s voice was rarely gentle. “You have been waiting at the airport for so long. Have you eaten dinner?”
Pei Feng smiled. “No, I wanted to wait for Master to eat dinner together.”
“Okay, I’ll treat you to dinner.”
The two of them drove to a restaurant together and had a late-night meal. Then Pei Feng took Jiang Shaoyu back to his villa to pick up Doudou.
Jiang Doudou was well taken care of by Pei Feng, but he seemed to have gained weight again?
He wagged his tail excitedly and barked when he saw Jiang Shaoyu. Jiang Shaoyu touched his head and looked back at Pei Feng. After calming down at home for a few days, Jiang Shaoyu also wanted to give Pei Feng an answer as soon as possible.
But there was a sudden heavy rain today and the flight was delayed. Pei Feng waited for him at the airport for a full seven hours…
He really couldn’t bear to make Xiao Pei sad at this time.
Still… let’s talk about it tomorrow.
Jiang Shaoyu thought of this and said, “I’ll take Doudou back to the base first.”
Pei Feng said softly, “It is already past 10 o’clock. Just stay here for one night. This isn’t the first time you have come to my house.”
Jiang Shaoyu thought for a while. “Okay.”
Then he would make it clear tomorrow that the two of them weren’t suitable to be a couple. It would be better to restore the master and apprentice relationship.
This was Jiang Shaoyu’s reply after thinking about it for a week.
The next morning, Jiang Shaoyu woke up. Then Pei Feng suddenly took him out mysteriously and said, “Master, I have a surprise for you.”
Jiang Shaoyu followed him suspiciously.
He saw an oversized RV parked behind the villa. Pei Feng took Jiang Shaoyu to board the RV and saw Doudou happily running around inside.
The RV had a lot of space. There were two small bedrooms, a shower area, a kitchen, and a small living room. The inside had obviously been modified.
Pei Feng said with a smile, “I bought this RV after I returned to China. I had someone modify it for me. How about we take Doudou to travel together in the RV?”
Jiang Shaoyu: “………”
Pei Feng looked at Jiang Shaoyu with gentle eyes. “I know Master likes to be free. Moreover, it is inconvenient to check in Doudou back and forth when flying. Pets also aren’t allowed on the high-speed rail. If you want to take Doudou to travel with you, traveling in an RV is the best way. If it is appropriate, you can stop and go as you please. You can freely arrange the time and place.”
Pets really weren’t suitable for traveling with their owners. Various means of transportation were too restrictive. However, Doudou was a very important family member to Jiang Shaoyu.
In fact, long before returning to China, his wish was to drive an RV and take Doudou on a trip. He would be free and unrestrained, going anywhere he wanted.
Pei Feng actually thought of going with him. His apprentice was indeed the person who knew him best. Pei Feng valued Doudou as a pet as much as he did.
Pei Feng also treated Doudou as a family.
Facing the alpha’s sincere gaze, Jiang Shaoyu didn’t know what to say.
Rationally, he should refuse. But at this moment, his throat felt dry and he suddenly couldn’t refuse.
He once again relented to the alpha in front of him.
It took a lot of money and energy to buy and modify the RV, right? It was just to be with his master and take Doudou to travel freely.
How could he refuse such a heart?
Jiang Shaoyu’s mind was a bit confused. He looked at Doudou running happily around the RV and was momentarily confused.
Pei Feng said softly, “Master, don’t worry. The RV has been converted into two bedrooms and you can sleep alone. I heard that traveling can easily magnify the shortcomings of people. Many couples will also travel together to see if they are suitable for each other.”
He looked at his master seriously. “Just give us a chance to see if we are suitable? Once we come back from this trip, I can accept any decision you make.”
The alpha’s eyes were full of anticipation. It was exactly the same as Jiang Doudou’s eyes while waiting for his master to feed him.
Jiang Shaoyu’s heart softened. Finally, he nodded. “Okay. You have made so many preparations and I also want to take Doudou around.”
Let’s give each other another chance. I can’t deny it directly.
If during the trip, maybe Xiao Pei would give up after finding out that his master was hard to get along with?
Jiang Shaoyu turned around to look at the equipment in the RV. Pei Feng looked at his back with a smile on his face.
His master would indeed be soft-hearted.
Pei Feng did prepare a lot for this day.
Doing what he liked and melting his master bit by bit. He needed to keep up his efforts.
