Chapter 27: You Are My Faith (VIII)
“Lovers? How did you start thinking that we can develop such a… deep relationship?” Shang Ke was certain that he did not have any sort of ambiguous behavior with Tylor these past few months. Besides the other occasionally dropping by to mooch off food from him, he would only chat with him outside, everything was very normal.
“I also don’t know.” Tylor replied with a very flat expression.
You also don’t know?
Shang Ke thought he would be able to heard some kind of new or original confession or romantic declaration and so on. The result was that he actually said he doesn’t know!
Tylor looked at Shang Ke, he calmly said, “Among all the relationships, I particularly endorse myself with the “lovers” relationship. So I think we can develop it.”
Shang Ke: “…Just what kind of reason made you feel that you can develop a romantic relationship with someone of the same gender like it’s an everyday matter?”
Tylor fell silent for a moment and then replied, “I don’t know who, but I always feel as if it will definitely be too late for regrets it in the future if I don’t quickly establish our relationship.”
Shang Ke felt a bit guilty at his reply, like an arrow in the knee…
“What do you think?” Tylor asked again.
“Nonono, I don’t have any thoughts.” Shang Ke quickly refused, “I think that our current status of rivals and friends, neither too close or far is good.”
Tylor’s eyes droop, he obviously didn’t have an expression, but Shang Ke could make out a trace of disappointment from his face.
A moment later, he looked back up, “Then we can do a trial marriage, together like husband and wife an see if we can develop the feelings of lovers.”
Shang Ke was simply unable to understand this man’s train of thought. If they don’t date they go straight for the trial marriage? This kind of jump is too big alright!
Shang Ke took a deep breath and repeated, “Let’s keep our current relationship of rivals and friends, neither too close or too far..”
“Then this is settled, we’ll do trial marriage.” Tylor showed a sincere face.
Damn, who said we were going to do trial marriage? Don’t ignore him!
“Daddy?” Shang Ke was just about to defend his human rights when Pupu woke up
“Awake?” Shang Ke pinched her nose.
Pupu had a head full of disheveled hair, dazily peeking her head out of the blankets, look around in confusion. She then resembled a silkworm as she made her way into Shang Ke’s embrace, lazily lying against his chest as she tilted her head to look at Tylor. She then patted the place she was lying in before. Her meaning was that he shouldn’t so stupidly just stand there, she was willing to give him her place for him to sleep.
Shang Ke felt both gratified and distressed toward his daughter’s generousity.
A trace of praise flashed by Tylor’s eyes: Good girl, the snacks and dowry in the future, he’ll take care of it all.
In the end, Shang Ke and Pupu would stay at Tylor’s place for the time being.
The reason why Kaiser agreed was mainly because he was worried that Shang Ke would throw himself into danger in spite of himself to save another. So leaving him by Tylor’s side at least guaranteed that outsiders wouldn’t hurt him.
At the present time, all places were busy with treating the devil qi invasion and controlling the situation. Although the devil storm quickly ended, the loss and hidden damage it dealt was hard to estimate.
The reigning king gathered the cabinet ministers to discuss their next action. Among it was the plan to destroy the Devil’s Tree which was pushed ahead of schedule.
“The Devil’s Tree cannot be destroyed.” Shang Ke said, “Ever since the beginning of human history, the Devil’s Tree has always existed. To destroy it, who knows how many people paid their lives, but in the end, without a single exception they all failed.”
“What’s your view on it?” Tylor placed down his tableware and looked toward Shang Ke sitting the opposite of him.
“I think that although the Devil’s Tree cannot be destroyed, it can be sealed.”
“Sealed?” Tylor’s expression was perked, he awaited his next words.
Shang Ke took the chance to mention the way to seal the Devil’s Tree, “The only thing that can suppress the devil qi in this word is the power of faith, so the way to seal it should also depend on the power of faith.
“But no matter how great is a single person’s power of faith, it is impossible to contend against the Devil’s Tree.”
“As such, we need to gather everyone’s power.” Shang Ke slowly replied.
“How do we gather them?”
“With the help of magic crystals.”
Tylor’s eyes lit up and everything gradually started to connect.
Magic crystals have a special ability, and that was when you gather three or more, it can form a boundary. This kind of boundary did not have much usage at most it can help the air within remain pure and make the fragrance of flowers stronger, the water clearer and so on. But if they input the power of faith, they can condense it into a great net of faith and suppress the Devil’s Tree.
Tylor did not doubt the feasibility of the method, because Shang Ke himself was proof. He used his own willpower and faith to shackle the great amount of devil qi within his body. If they look at this devil qi as the Devil’s Tree itself, then Shang Ke’s body would be that boundary.
When Tylor thought to that, he once again looked toward Shang Ke. This young man probably never knew what kind of miracle he created. In the continent’s entire history, there wasn’t a single person that faced the devil qi’s erosion head on. Others carefully hid their weakness in their heart and wrapped their arms tightly around them. Yet this man walked another road, not only did he place his body in danger, he also open his heart and confronted the devil qi. Rather, it should be called confronting his own weak points rather than the devil qi.
Just what kind of great heart and courage did one need to continue forward?
“Thank you for your suggestion, I will report this when I get back to the palace this afternoon.” Tylor clearly attached a lot of importance to it.
After they ended their serious topic, the atmosphere between the two gradually lighten.
At this moment, Shang Ke suddenly asked, “I have something I always wanted to ask you. Why do you always dress even more carefully at home than outside?”
He wore a delicate formal attire everyday, his hair was comb with not even a strand out of place and there was even perfume on his body.
A split second of stiffness showed on Tylor’s face then he fell into a strange silence.
In the animal kingdom, there was something called “courtship”, like a peacock spreading its tail for example… Shang Ke clearly did not pay attention to the animal world.
Pupu bit into her bread, her large eyes glittering as she looked at this, then at the stuff over there.
After that day, Tylor changed out of his formal wear and wear normal clothing.
Shang Ke finally did not need to worry that his eyes were going to go blind (from beauty).
Tylor reported the way to seal the Devil’s Tree to his father and everyone immediately rose the importance of it. They gathered large amounts of magic crystals and started to begin experimenting.
The experiment was quickly verified and the Holy Empire’s King immediately forwarded the news to all the other countries on the continent. They wished for them to also participate in the operation of sealing the Devil’s Tree.
In the time they were waiting for a reply, the situation all around was pretty much stabilized and King City once again returned to order.
Shang Ke lived at Tylor’s mansion and everything was provided for, he lived very contented. He would also make a midnight snack, so in those dozen of days, they had gotten quite a bit fatter. Pupu became much more tender and white, like a rosy honey peach.
Tylor lived according to the trial marriage lifestyle. He would return home on time everyday, eat with Shang Ke, take a walk with Shang Ke, hug Shang Ke, sleep with Shang Ke… the first time they slept in the same bed, Shang Ke protested greatly.
Tylor seriously reflected for a few seconds then got a large stuffed animal from the other room and stuffed it into Shang Ke’s arms. Then he caught Pupu, turned and left the room.
“Wait, where are you taking Pupu?” Shang Ke held the stuffed animal and chased after him until they were in Tylor’s room.
Tylor then pushed, closed and locked the door. Everything was done in one swift movement, easily leading the little lamb into his wolf nest.
Shang Ke looked at the tightly closed door, then looked at Tylor: “……”
Tylor said, “Since you’re already here, let’s sleep together.”
He put down Pupu on his own bed.
Pupu rolled around the bed for a moment, then happily waved her hand at Shang Ke. “Daddy, hurry~~”
Tylor also waved his hand at him, “Come here.”
Shang Ke speechlessly watched the two, don’t tell him he was the only one that felt this development was strange?!
That night, Shang Ke helplessly slept in the same bed as Tylor.
Before they slept, Pupu was in the middle. When they woke up, Pupu was in his arms while he was in Tylor’s arms…
A morning half a month later, Tylor had an arm on Shang Ke’s waist as he seriously asked, “Shang Ke, do you think we can become lovers now?”
“No!” Shang Ke pull away his arm.
Tylor leaned over and landed a kiss on his forehead, “How about this?”
Tylor deeply gazed at him for a while then said, “I understand.”
You understand what? Shang Ke didn’t even get the chance to ask before he felt something warm against his lips, someone just decided to go straight for a french kiss.
Shang Ke subconsciously wanted to avoid it, but Tylor held his head, deepening the kiss.
A moment later, Tylor finally let go of him, huskily asking, “Now it should be certain right?”
Shang Ke slightly panted, his eyes misty and he opened his mouth to speak, but Tylor once again said, “If you still aren’t certain, then we can continue a bit farther.”
Shang Ke immediately closed his mouth, fiercely glaring at this man. He was now very certain, this guy was the man he met in his past two worlds. He was like a combination of Ravel and Jian Chenfeng, he had an honorable temperament, but also had the characteristics of a rogue.
Tylor used a finger to slowly trace Shang Ke’s figure, the red in his eyes became richer and seem to be two burning flames.
Perhaps Shang Ke still wasn’t certain, but he already had his answer. He wanted him, to be his lover.
This kind of heart moving feeling was so intense. He can no longer find any reason to let him leave him, he wanted this man, to accompany him for a lifetime.
After his assignment was done, the first thing Kaiser did was drop by Tylor’s mansion to pick up Shang Ke.
Tylor told Kaiser, “Shang Ke will live in my mansion from now on.”
“Why?” Kaiser frowned.
“Because I don’t want my lover to live with another man.”
Kaiser: Was his ears having problems or was Tylor’s head having problems?
Lover? He and Shang Ke? Two men?
The Holy Empire had never acknowledged homosexuality, the ordinary people are always hiding it, yet Tylor, this His Highness the Prince didn’t care to hide it at all?
With a face of shock, Kaiser felt a bit upset in his heart.
Two men, can it really happen?
