Slowly, Kang Xing Luo’s daily routine became exceptionally stable.
He worked out according to the training schedule set by the doctor in various time intervals and started to take the first step towards a new life by returning his body to normal functions.
With the contact with Kang Lai Yin last night, Kang Xing Luo felt much stabler. Although he could not get news about the other cats from Kang Lai Yin, his anxiety was still much less than before.
Although the world was new now, Kang Xing Luo was not alone.
There was hope in his heart and motivation to do everything.
In his daily training, he was always accompanied by Kang Lai Yin, even though there was a senior caregiver, and he did not need to go up to help, but he always staring at him from not far away. Kang Xing Luo was a little uncomfortable at first, but when the man was brought into the perspective of him being Xiao Shizi, he immediately felt that it was quite normal.
Come to think about it when they were at home, the cats always squatted and stared at him from the angle they liked, especially Xiao Shizi. He had to sit on his lap when eating, sit on his laps when squatting on the toilet, and even when taking a bath… …
This seemed to be too much to think about, but Kang Xing Luo didn’t have a lot of time to think about it. He was quickly distracted by the soreness in his body.
It didn’t feel too difficult when he was hurrying outside, but now it is much more difficult to relax and manipulate his body.
“Don’t worry, it will improve little by little.”
Kang Xing Luo exercised according to the schedule, taking a short break after every 20 minutes of exercise. The body aches could actually be tolerated, but after he walked a few steps forward, the nurses encouraged him like he was a baby who was learning to walk for the first time and all this applauding made him feel a little embarrassed.
As time passed slowly, Kang Xing Luo didn’t make too much progress, but he felt a sense of satisfaction after hard work.
He had a stable mind, but Li Hongming, who didn’t have any work, felt like he was sitting on pins and needles for some reason, and was unhappy when even playing with his mobile phone.
Kang Xing Luo couldn’t help asking: “What’s wrong with you?”
Li Hongming carefully looked at Kang Lai Yin’s expression, who was sitting there in his human form, like a statue of an evil spirit.
Li Hongming shook his head and did not dare to say a word of nonsense or complaint to his friend.
Look, at this companion accompanying you…
Laozi is fine, he himself is about to get high blood pressure and be hospitalized!
One morning, Kang Xing Luo’s hands on the railing were so sore that he couldn’t stand on his feet and was swaying as if he was about to fall. The surrounding nurses stepped forward to support him, but no one touched him as Kang Lai Yin had already hugged him into his arms.
Contrary to the ‘super big cat’, the human-like Kang Lai Yin had a stiff body and solid muscles wherever he came in contact with his body. Kang Xing Luo was steadily lifted upward by him and placed in a wheelchair in the next instant.
The nurse then said: “Take a break. In the afternoon, you can practice breathing and vocalization.”
Kang Lai Yin asked: “Are you tired?”
Kang Xing Luo said, “Yes, a little.”
Since he was taking a break, the nurses went away to have lunch, then Kang Lai Yin said. “I’ll give you a massage.”
It was always him who massaged the cat, but he didn’t expect the cat to massage him. Kang Xing Luo was flattered. He hurriedly bent down and lowered his head slightly, leaving Kang Lai Yin with more room for manipulation.
Kang Lai Yin asked suddenly: “Would you like to listen to music?”
Kang Xing Luo said: “Listen to music?”
The secretary laughed: “Listening to music can relax your mood, and it is also good for vocal practice. If you like it, you can try to hum or sing along, so your breathing might be more consistent.”
Listening to music was indeed a good suggestion. For him, there were too many unknowns in this new world. It was also good to listen to music and learn about current trends.
Kang Xing Luo smiled and nodded: “Okay.”
Kang Lai Yin took out his mobile phone, picked it up, put it on Kang Xing Luo’s knee, and said, “I like this song very much.”
After saying this, a very dynamic prelude flowed out, and Kang Lai Yin followed the rhythm of the music with neither light nor heavy pressing on Kang Xing’s shoulders.
With the pressure on his back, Kang Xing Luo felt pretty good. He thought that Kang Lai Yin’s hand had distinct bones which eased his dull pain when he pressed. He didn’t expect that the actual touch was soft, and even quite elastic.
The prelude of mobile phone music gradually ceased, and Kang Xing Luo immediately concentrated on it.
Although he had met Xiao Shizi last night and had close contact, after all, there was a great distance between Xiao Shizi who had become a human and him. He knew Xiao Shizi as a cat, but he knew nothing about him as a human being.
He was actually quite curious about Kang Lai Yin’s preferences and didn’t know what kind of music he liked.
As he was thinking about it, a sharp voice burst out in the air, the singing was accompanied by a fast-paced loud rap-like sound: — “Meow, meow! Meow! Meow! Hey! Meow! Meow!”
—— “Meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow!”
Kang Xing Luo: “…”
At the same time, along with the sound of music, the touch on his back became more and more vivid and rhythmic.
While Kang Xing Luo’s face was stunned, Li Hongming looked at Kang Lai Yin, who was full of movement and looked a little cheerful and fell into deep panic.
Even when Godfather talked about massage… but it was clearly dancing!!!
And that too following the music to dance!!! Should he have such a degree of selfishness as the Nation’s Godfather!!
Besides, take a look at that look, he was obviously enjoying it!!
Li Hongming’s expression was complex and lingering, and his ears were filled with ‘Meow Meow Meow Meow’, while his eyes fluttered to meet the secretary ’s eyes.
The secretary paused, then squatted down and said to Kang Xing Luo: “The host is ill and paralyzed, and the pet is working for him. I am so touched!!”
Kang Xing Luo, who was ignorant, felt confused for a moment, but soon his face showed a moved expression.
Li Hongming: “…”
My poor deceived little Doofus!!
After the song finished, the surroundings suddenly quieted down. Kang Lai Yin stopped dancing. The massage was very invigorating, so his face was a little reddish. He sank down, squatted beside Kang Xing Luo and asked, “How do you feel?”
Kang Xing Luo moved his shoulders, his whole back felt pretty good, and said truthfully: “Very good.”
Kang Lai Yin showed a big and unabashed smile, which when placed on Kang Lai Yin’s naturally super fierce face looked like a dead tree in spring. Kang Xing Luo was almost dazzled. When Kang Lai Yin asked him if the song was good, he said after a long time: “Good, good.”
Actually, Kang Xing Luo didn’t know whether it was good or not. From the song, he only remembered meow meow, meow. He didn’t remember any tunes and melody, he just felt that the rhythm was fast, a bit like rap.
Having said that, it turned out that Xiao Shizi liked this type of music?
He hadn’t noticed it before.
Kang Xing Luo said: “You, like, this song, why?”
Kang Lai Yin said: “Because of the lyrics.”
Kang Xing Luo: “…”
Kang Lai Yin was a little surprised: “Don’t you think it is very literary?”
Kang Xing Luo “…”
Kang Xing Luo deeply reflected on the word ‘meow’ reverberating in his mind, recalled it again, and cautiously said: “Actually, it sounds, like, only one word again and again.”
Kang Xing Luo did not understand how cats communicated with each other.
Kang Lai Yin said: “I also sound like one word too.”
Kang Xing Luo: “…”???
Kang Xing Luo: “Then what, how, did you hear the lyrics, and the literary talent?
Kang Lai Yin said: “Frequency and fluctuation.”
Kang Xing Luo: “…” ……Oh oh oh.
Cat language was really broad and profound.
After the massage was over, and the exercise room was idle, Kang Xing Luo was pushed back to his ward to rest. Kang Lai Yin went out to answer the phone temporarily, and Li Hongming felt like he had been liberated.
“Damn! He finally left.”
Kang Xing Luo said strangely: “What’s wrong, why are you acting like you are afraid of him?” Li Hongming was more than afraid; he didn’t even dare to breathe loudly in front of him!
Li Hongming sighed while lying on Kang Xing Luo’s thigh.
The air suddenly quietened, then Li Hongming, said: “I think I should go.”
Kang Xing Luo: “Why, why?”
Li Hongming said: “Me staying here is useless.”
Actually, Li Hongming looked carefree. But in fact, his heart was very sensitive to the perception of the outside world. He and Kang Xing Luo could become friends, but their way of thinking was completely different from each other. Xing Luo was friendly to everyone, while Li Hongming’s friendship was limited to only one or two people.
Except for friends and relatives, everybody else was scum in his eyes.
Li Hongming originally guarded Kang Xing Luo because he wanted to take care of him. Now Kang Xing Luo had a national godfather named Kang Lai Yin. There was no need for him to worry about food, clothing, housing and transportation. There were doctors and nurses nearby to take care of him. His staying here felt a bit redundant.
The reason why he had not left until now was actually because of the joke he had said last night.
Li Hongming had nowhere to go now, and he would be alone when he left.
After saying goodbye, Li Hongming was actually a little lost. Deep down, his situation was actually more at a loss than Kang Xing Luo right now.
Kang Xing Luo grasped his hand and said: “Are you going to go?”
Li Hongming paused and said: “Ah.”
Kang Xing Luo looked at him and said: “Do not go, old Li, I don’t know what I’ll do without you.”
Li Hongming first froze, then lowered his head for a second; and then laughed out loud. He patted Kang Xing Luo’s hand, and finally said: “…Ok, Doofus.” Of course, he didn’t mention the things he had gone through, or why he was sad. After a few moments, his sadness was again forgotten, and he started to play with his phone again. However, after comforting Li Hongming, Kang Xing Luo couldn’t help but sigh.
For him, it seemed that he had no other task besides nourishing his body at the moment, but he always felt that there was a mist in front of him. Although he did not have to worry about falling, he had no direction.
Also, his cats…
Kang Xing Luo thought of meeting the prince, and when the memory came up, he found it unbearable to look back at that memory. He didn’t know what he was thinking at the time, and he didn’t know when he could see him again.
Kang Xing Luo said: “Do you know, where to go, if I want to see the prince?”
Li Hongming was taken aback, and remembered that the prince was also his cat, he said casually: “It’s not easy. You can go and ask Godfather, tell him that you want to see the prince, it would be easy for him…” Before he finished speaking, Li Hongming’s eyes wavered, and he happened to see a pair of bright cat eyes from the crack of the door.
Li Hongming’s voice got stuck, and he turned a corner suddenly: “You can see him…maybe, maybe…not necessarily!”

I wasn’t sure what I expected when I saw cat’s music, but ‘Meow’ sums it up perfectly! Much thanks!
