The sky gradually darkened. Pei Feng opened the sunroof cover of the car. The transparent glass window appeared in front of him.
Jiang Shaoyu looked up and saw the stars twinkling in the starry night sky. After staying in the city for a long time, there were dazzling, colorful lights everywhere. It was rare to see such a beautiful night sky.
Jiang Shaoyu sat on the sofa in the living room. He looked up at the starry sky and his mood was extremely comfortable.
It was nice to travel freely like this.
There was no need to wait to board a plane, catch a train, or find a hotel. He could sleep in the RV when tired, lie on the sofa, and watch the starry sky above him.
The surroundings were extremely quiet. It seemed that only he and Pei Feng were left in this world.
Pei Feng sat next to him, rested his hands on his arms, and said in a low voice, “In fact, when I was a child, I especially wanted to buy an RV and go on a trip wherever I wanted. This time, I am really happy that Master can accompany me and we can go out together. It doesn’t matter where we travel. The person we go with is the most important, right Master?”
He looked back at Jiang Shaoyu, just in time to meet Jiang Shaoyu’s gaze.
In the quiet car, Jiang Shaoyu’s heart seemed to suddenly stop beating. Then it started to beat rapidly again. The frank and straightforward look of the alpha in front of him entered Jiang Shaoyu’s eyes, making him feel at a loss for a moment.
He had been a very calm person since he was a child and could handle anything with ease. Even when he suddenly differentiated into an omega, he just calmly called an ambulance and his big brother.
This was the first time. He felt a strange sense of bewilderment in his heart.
His apprentice’s gaze was too hot as if it was burning him. He didn’t know how he would answer if Xiao Pei confessed again.
Fortunately, Pei Feng didn’t continue the topic. He calmly looked away and said with a smile, “It is getting late. Master, let’s go take a shower and go to bed. Tomorrow, we will go and watch the opening ceremony of the Ice Sculpture Festival.”
Jiang Shaoyu nodded. He quickly got up and walked into the bathroom.
The RV had limited space and only one bathroom. Pei Feng had prepared the toiletries in advance. Jiang Shaoyu didn’t care about the brand of shampoo and shower gel, so he didn’t bring them personally.
He finished washing first, put on his pajamas, and walked to his bedroom. The two bedrooms were arranged one above the other. Jiang Shaoyu chose the one on top because Pei Feng was tall and would feel cramped when climbing stairs.
Jiang Shaoyu spoke when he saw Pei Feng sitting in the living room and playing with the puppy. “You have been driving all day. Rest early.”
Pei Feng nodded. “Okay. Good night, Master.”
Jiang Shaoyu went upstairs to sleep and Pei Feng headed to the bathroom.
The heat in the bathroom hadn’t dissipated yet, and the fragrance of the shower gel floated in the air. Pei Feng couldn’t help feeling dry when he thought about how his master had been washing up under the shower head just now, naked.
In fact, the moment he met Jiang Shaoyu’s eyes just now, he really wanted to kiss Jiang Shaoyu.
His master’s lips were full and the color was beautiful. He wanted to hug his master until the other person couldn’t breathe. He wanted to see the expression of confusion on his master’s indifferent face. It must be very sexy.
Wasn’t it normal for a young and energetic alpha to have desires for the person he liked? After all, he was only 20 years old, which was his prime. He couldn’t have no desires and only want to hold hands platonically with his master.
He knew that his master hadn’t agreed to his pursuit, but he couldn’t help having all types of evil thoughts toward the other person. Jiang Shaoyu would definitely be very disgusted if he knew about this.
Pei Feng took a deep breath and quickly doused his impulse with cold water.
He went out and saw Jiang Doudou waiting at the door for him. Pei Feng rubbed Doudou’s head and asked in a low voice, “Are you going to sleep with Dad Pei or Dad Jiang tonight?”
Jiang Doudou: “Bark bark!”
Pei Feng smiled and put his forehead to his head. “Okay, I know you like me.”
Pei Feng carried Doudou into his bedroom and let Doudou lie down next to him. He closed his eyes and fell asleep contentedly.
He slept until noon the next day. When Jiang Shaoyu woke up, he saw Pei Feng cooking in the kitchen. There was a refrigerator in the RV, which was full of vegetables that Pei Feng bought from the supermarket. During the trip, if they wanted to eat out then they could take a taxi to the place. If they didn’t want to eat out, it was convenient to cook in the car.
Seeing Jiang Shaoyu get up, Pei Feng turned around and said with a smile, “Master, you have a bad stomach. I’m afraid you will feel uncomfortable eating out every day. Yesterday, we tasted the local specialty stew. Let’s have lunch in the car today. I’ll stir-fry two of your favorite vegetarian dishes.”
Seeing Pei Feng wearing an apron and lowering his head to handle the ingredients, Jiang Shaoyu felt warm in his heart. He nodded and said, “Okay, I’ll wash my face and then help you.”
He turned around and went to the bathroom to wash his face. Pei Feng had already started cooking by the time he returned to the kitchen. Jiang Shaoyu saw a cabbage lying on the table and took the initiative to turn on the tap and wash the vegetables. It wasn’t good for him to do nothing and let Pei Feng take care of him. He was just Pei Feng’s master, not the emperor.
The efficiency was much faster when two people worked together. Pei Feng turned to look at the other person and saw that his master’s expression was serious. He was washing the cabbages as if in a meeting for the national team. Pei Feng couldn’t help chuckling before continuing to stir-fry the bamboo shoots in the pan.
Soon, two plates of light, home-cooked dishes were served. Jiang Shaoyu liked both of them. The two of them had lunch face-to-face. Then Pei Feng drove the RV to the parking lot near the ice sculpture exhibition.
There were many tourists in the city of ice and snow in the winter. There were many tour group buses and self-driving private cars parked in the parking lot. Pei Feng’s huge RV was mixed among them and didn’t look very unusual.
The tourists were well-armed with masks, hats, and down jackets as standard equipment. Only their eyes were exposed. Even acquaintances would find it hard to recognize each other.
Pei Feng and Jiang Shaoyu put on their down jackets and bought tickets to go to the Ice Sculpture Park together.
Today was the opening ceremony of the Ice Sculpture Festival. There was light snow in the sky and it was very cold outside. Jiang Shaoyu felt a bit cold even though he was wearing a down jacket. He sneezed twice in a row. Pei Feng looked at him and immediately wrapped his scarf around his master’s neck. “Wrap it around you.”
The warmth coming from his neck made Jiang Shaoyu feel more comfortable. The two of them walked into the park with the tourists. The ice sculptures of various shapes were lifelike, with there being animals, plants, and large buildings.
Pei Feng was worried that the two of them would get separated in the crowd, so he gently grabbed Jiang Shaoyus’s arm and followed the clockwise direction of the map.
The two of them walked around the park and took a lot of beautiful photos of ice sculptures.
Once it was night, the park lit up. The ice sculptures illuminated by lights looked even more beautiful than during the day. Tourists excitedly took photos. At 10 o’clock in the evening, the fireworks show started in the park. Pei Feng and Jiang Shaoyu mingled among the crowd and looked up at the gorgeous fireworks in the sky.
Colorful fireworks illuminated the night sky brightly. Ice sculptures of various shapes were rendered by colorful lights, making them as beautiful as a fairy tale world composed of colored ice crystals.
Jiang Shaoyu felt that this trip was worthwhile. In the past few years, he always wanted to come to Binzhou to see the Ice Sculpture exhibition. However, he missed it every time due to the wrong schedule or being too busy. This time, he was able to watch the opening ceremony of the Ice Sculpture Festival in full. The various sculptures this year were also very exquisite.
The exploding fireworks made a crackling sound. Cheers came from the crowd from time to time, the excited screams of children sounded around them, and couples hugged each other under the fireworks. He obviously didn’t like such lively occasions, but for some reason, he was very happy this time. Compared to traveling alone, it felt better to have someone by his side.
By the time they returned to the RV after visiting the Ice Sculpture Park, it was already 10:30 at night. The two of them changed clothes. Pei Feng went to make a midnight snack while Jiang Shaoyu played with the puppy in the living room.
A moment later, two bowls of hot porridge were brought to the table.
Pei Feng handed him the spoon. “Master, try it. It is my newly learned fish porridge.”
Jiang Shaoyu picked up the spoon and took a sip. Then he raised his head in confusion. “Why does it taste the same as the porridge made by Master Fang?”
Master Fang was the chef that Jiang Shaoyu met when he inspected the BM Club. The porridge he made was so delicious that Jiang Shaoyu recruited him to the national team and took him to the World Series. During the foreign competition, the players could eat it every day. There were all types of delicacies, and everyone was full of praise for the craftsmanship of Chef Fang.
Pei Feng asked and explained, “I specially asked Master Fang to learn from him.”
Jiang Shaoyu: “……”
Pei Feng added, “I found that you especially like the porridge made by Master Fang. You usually only eat one bowl, but you can eat two bowls of the fish porridge made by him. After returning home from the competition, I made a special trip to find him. I paid him some tuition and asked him to teach me how to make porridge. I just learned it a few days ago.”
Pei Feng sat on the sofa and smiled brightly at Jiang Shaoyu. “Are my studies okay? Master Fang said that I am quite talented in cooking. I can be 80% as good as him.”
Jiang Shaoyu looked at the porridge in front of him and didn’t know what to say.
Just because he liked to eat the porridge made by Master Fang, Xiao Pei actually paid the tuition and went all the way there to study?
There had never been a person who was so attentive to him.
Jiang Shaoyu was silent for a moment due to complicated emotions. Then he suddenly whispered, “Xiao Pei, my personality actually isn’t suitable for dating. I don’t understand romance, and I rarely care about other people’s feelings. As your master, I think I am worthy of you and can teach you everything I know. But as a couple, I might not be qualified. If you don’t get the response you want after all your efforts, will you be sad?”
Pei Feng smiled. “I will definitely be sad if I don’t get a response but… I don’t regret it.” He looked at Jiang Shaoyu seriously. “I just want to care about you, take care of you, and be good to you. It is my business that I like you. As for whether you want to respond to me or not, that is your decision. I won’t force you.”
Jiang Shaoyu could feel that Xiao Pei’s care and love for him came from the heart.
Even if he didn’t respond, Xiao Pei wouldn’t hate him.
The alpha in front of him was so simple and straightforward. If he liked someone then just like them. If he wants to be good to someone, just be good to them. There was no need to calculate the gains and losses, or the pros and cons.
Such pure emotion was moving.
Looking at the sincere gaze of the young man in front of him, a corner of Jiang Shaoyu’s heart seemed to be gradually melted by the scorching temperature. He thought, ‘There will never be anyone who likes me recklessly like Xiao Pei again, right?’
He looked away and lowered his head to eat.
The porridge made by Xiao Pei was very delicious. Jiang Shaoyu ate two bowls in a row.
