这穿越方式绝逼不对！Chapter zero four three – Giving name
Turns out for Yin Suye, his contract making skill is not any ordinary skillful. When he did it, it was done at ease with extraordinary skills. As one of the main character in the contract’s process, Shui Ruoshan felt like he doesn’t even has the time to object. His hand has already been taken by Yin Suye and with just a gentle slice, a drop of blood was squeezed out; flying toward the Persian cat’s forehead…
The Persian cat didn’t resist and let the blood integrate into its body. Instantly, a dazzling light glowed between one cat and one human. After the light disappeared, the master-pet contract between them has completed. All of a sudden, Shui Ruoshan could perceive that something has appeared in his mind that enables him to control the life and death of his pet.
As soon as the contract was signed, the Persian cat knew that everything about itself would be under its master’s control so it couldn’t wait to start pleasing its master.
Shui Ruoshan stretched out his hands to indicate that it could come into his arms. Although he doesn’t think himself as a member of the Moe Pet camp1, but anyone who sees a super cute cat selling ‘meng’ wouldn’t be able to resist wanting to hold the animal in their arms and give it a good rub.
Seeing that its owner summoned it, the Persian cat immediately struggled to get away from Yin Suye’s arms. It wanted to seek comfort from its owner’s arms, don’t want to stay by the bad person’s side and get threatened!
Yin Suye glanced down with a threatening look at the increasingly restless Persian cat in his hold.
This time, the Persian cat was not as scared as it was before. It strongly looked back at Yin Suye with its big watery eyes. That little smug look seemed to be saying, ‘I’m now a cat with a master to protect me, I’m not afraid a bad person like you who specializes in bullying cats!’.
Looking at that one human and one cat staring intently at each other without any regards for other people, Shui Ruoshan felt like he saw an illusion. Actually, Yin Suye should be the real owner of the Persian cat ba? Especially when this cat has one blue and one green eye, the feeling became even stronger.
Then, Yin Suye noticed that Shui Ruoshan was watching him with a burning gaze. He found out that his own behavior seemed a bit wrong just now, then he turned and flung the Persian cat away towards the furthest place in sight.
The Persian cat doesn’t care about being flung away by Yin Suye. The moment it gotten its freedom, it just took a light flip in mid-air. Locking down at Shui Ruoshan’s location, it sped back to him right away.
A pity, because Yin Suye was standing right in front of Shui Ruoshan. So when he(YSY) saw that the cat wanted to fly into Shui Ruoshan’s arms, he raised his hand and smacked that incoming Persian cat away again.
“What are you doing?”
Looking at the pitiful cat being smacked away, and it rolled a few times on the ground before coming to a stop, Shui Ruoshan suddenly became dissatisfied with Yin Suye’s behaviour in bullying the weak. At the time, he is confused as well. Just now both cat and human were close to each other. So how did everything completely changed from a blink of an eye? Is this ‘the more you love, the more you kill(each other)’?
“The cat is very dirty.”
Yin Suye saw that the Persian cat has not given up yet, still trying to pounce into Shui Ruoshan’s arms. He went to smack the cat away without any mercy once again. Then, acting like he didn’t do anything, he turned to Shui Ruoshan to explain in all seriousness. Yin Suye has made up his mind not to let this extremely dirty and stupid cat to have any chance to get in touch with Shui Ruoshan.
When Shui Ruoshan first decided to set the Persian cat as a cute pet in his novel, he has written that in order to maintain the cat’s super ‘moe’ appearance, no matter how dirty the Persian cat gotten, it would just have to shake its body a few times and it would return to its original state. Hence, even if the Persian cat has rolled a few times on the ground, the dust on its hairs would disappear right away the moment it stood up and shook itself a few times. The white fluffy hair would be looking white as usual without a trace of filth; as clean as ever!
That’s why, if Yin Suye doesn’t want to see him interacting with the Persian cat, he(YSY) should find a more convincing reason! Telling lies with eyes opened wide is not right!
Being smacked away a few times, the Persian cat has finally learned its lesson. It didn’t take the initiative to go forward this time. Instead, it stood on the ground afar and protested against Yin Suye’s violence.
Originally, Yin Suye’s mood was not very good because of Shui Ruoshan’s untrusting gaze. Now the Persian cat came to add more chaos to the matter, he naturally directs his fury to the cat.
Being looked down by Yin Suye like he is looking at a dead body, the Persian didn’t dare to call out anymore and immediately admitted its defeat; displaying a perfect performance of ‘bullying the weak, fearing the strong’. Just like what it did previously, it thought it has a backer so it became very arrogant. The moment it knew the upper hand is not at its side, it immediately compromised. Seeing that no one paid attention to itself, the Persian cat could only lay down on the ground with grief. It lowered down its head and comforted itself.
Why is its cat life so bitter? Came out to get the heavenly treasure but failed, then get caught by bad people. There are no cats in this world more pitiful than itself! Wu wu, the human world is so horrible, wanna go home to mama!
“It is wrong to bully a cat!”
Shui Ruoshan naturally could understand his family pet’s despair, so he voiced out his opinion regarding Yin Suye’s bullying behavior.
Yin Suye did not feel that there is anything wrong with his behavior. He was just educating this stupid cat about what can be done and what can’t be done.
Yin Suye replied with such righteousness tone that Shui Ruoshan doesn’t know how to refute back.
“All I did was letting this stupid cat understand its status as a pet only.” Also won’t let it be pampered, arrogant or do any imprudent things.
In his past life, he(YSY) has seen the cat climbing over Huang Beichen’s head and being tyrannical; insufferably arrogant. In this life, since this stupid cat has fallen into his hand, naturally it would have to act according to his rules. He believed that in the face of absolute violence, any resistance is useless! With that, he absolutely would be able to educate this stupid cat to perfection.
Facing Yin Suye who has presented reasonable arguments, Shui Ruoshan felt quite helpless. He clearly understood that Yin Suye’s words were ‘twisting words and forcing logic’2, but he could not find a room for rebuttal. Unable to argue back on his pet’s behalf, Shui Ruoshan could only throw a look of apology to the Persian cat that has shrunk itself at a corner, which started to draw circles on the ground with its paw. Not that he doesn’t want to help, but the enemy is too strong!
Perhaps he should be glad now. Although the Persian cat in the novel looked the same as the one in earth, and even cuter, the physical level between the two was not the same at all. As a spiritual beast, the Persian cat here is a strong being that is absolutely hit-resistant, smack-resistant, flung-resistant and also wreck-resistant ah. And so, Shui Ruoshan felt that even under the hands of Yin Suye, the Persian cat still would be able to preserve its life. Plus this one cat and one human did has a good relationship earlier, although he(SRS) has no idea why the relationship suddenly deteriorated. But then, that probably could also change back all of a sudden right?
If Yin Suye and Persian cat knew how Shui Ruoshan see their mutual aggression as friendship, both of them would definitely sigh and lament, ‘How bad can this person’s eyesight be, to get disillusioned and see thing completely opposite from the truth ah?!’.
“Should we give the Persian cat a name?”
Since Shui Ruoshan couldn’t help the Persian cat from the actual situation, then he could do it from other aspect. Other than that, it’s too casual to keep calling it as ‘Persian cat’.
Yin Suye quite agrees with Shui Ruoshan’s suggestion.
Shui Ruoshan : “What name do you think is good?”
Shui Ruoshan doesn’t want to use the name that the protagonist gave the Persian cat.
Yin Suye : “You want me to help you choose?”
Different emotions quickly flitted through Yin Suye’s heterochromia eyes. He never thought that the first thing Shui Ruoshan did was to ask for his(YSY) opinions first. Does that means he(SRS) really did placed him(YSY) in the most important place in his heart?
“En.” Shui Ruoshan nodded in confirmation. He is really not good with naming pets. Otherwise, he won’t casually let the protagonist call the Persian cat with a stupid name like ‘Xiao Mao'(Little Cat) just because he couldn’t think of a good name in the beginning.
“Ruixue.3” Yin Suye didn’t refuse to help. Not only because Shui Ruoshan placed importance in his(YSY) words, but also to prevent Shui Ruoshan from giving bad quality names like Huang Beichen’s ‘Little Cat’. Yin Suye thought for a moment and gave his suggestion.
“Alright, Ruixue then!”
Shui Ruoshan felt like he indeed didn’t ask the wrong person. No wonder Yin suye is Yin Suye. He could suggest such an auspicious and meaningful name within a short time.
The Persian cat, no, should be called Ruixue, called out in joy as well as if it is telling everyone that it is very satisfied with this new name.
In an instant, Yin Suye’s gaze became softer. Shui Ruoshan is willing to use the name he(YSY) suggested for his pet, does this mean that he(SRS) is willing to share his everything together with him? As expected, Shui Ruoshan is indeed the gift Heaven gave him as compensation, a gift that belonged to him alone! Otherwise, why would everything Shui Ruoshan did were all according to his(YSY) will?
