Chapter 49 – Differentiation into Omega
Qiu Jin regretted it as soon as he finished speaking, because he saw that Ji Shenxiao was looking at him with disdain, like he was an asylum patient and that he should go to the hospital if he’s sick [in the head].
But the question has already been voices, so he could only bite the bullet and continue to say: “You won’t mark me, would you?”
Ji Shenxiao’s gaze fell upon him. A long while later, he revealed a mocking smile: “Are you crazy or am I crazy?”
He was really worthy of being called the protagonist of abstinence. Even at a time like this he could remain completely unmoved.
Qiu Jin gave him a thumbs up: “That’s good then. Now I can rest assured.”
Ji Shenxiao retracted his gaze. Don’t know whom these words were meant for [himself or Qiu Jin], but he said: “I have never believed in pheromone attraction. If I mark someone, it must be because I love him.”

These words gave Qiu Jin a whole new level of respect for Ji Shenxiao. He never thought that Ji Shenxiao, who looked like a playboy, would actually be so pure and innocent at his core. It was even a bit idealistic.
After a while, the people who had gone to pick plums came back one after another.
Qiu Jin did not do any work the whole day, so he took the initiative to make the last meal. In the evening, everyone gathered in the living room to watch an old movie, which brought the week to a successful close.
In the middle of the night, Qiu Jin had another dream again. It was damp, hot, impulsive, sticky, dark, and gloomy. When he woke up, he realized that his body was soaked, as if he had just been fished out of the water.
The night was quiet. The sound of waves and insects intertwined into a hypnotic lull. The window was opened for some reason, allowing a faint stripe of moonlight to spill through and paint the floorboards a lighter shade. It also highlighted the dark shadow of a tall man.
Ji Shenxiao stood at the side of the bed, looking down at him from high above. His gaze was so fierce as to be startling, and it contained a strong passion within.
Qiu Jin’s heart thumped and he was struck with a horrific thought. The fear was like an ice-cold snake slithering up his calf and tightening around his body.
“What, what are you doing?” He asked. His voice trembled so badly.
This sentence was like a switch, and Ji Shenxiao took a step forward to lean down and approach him.
The man exuded the strong aura of an alpha. It was so strong that it was almost hard to breathe in his presence.

Qiu Jin suddenly panicked: “Ji Shenxiao, don’t mess around! You said you wouldn’t be attracted to me…!”
A bottle of blocking agent suddenly materialized in Ji Shenxiao’s hand and he sprayed Qiu Jin fiercely from head to toe.
Lemon fragrance penetrated his nostrils and Qiu Jin released a great sneeze.
Although Ji Shenxiao was saying sorry with his lips, his actions were more emphatic than anyone else’s.
After spraying Qiu Jin with the blocking agent, Ji Shenxiao pulled out an inhibitor and gave him a shot to the arm without any hesitation.
Qiu Jin felt a slight tingling pain and then the ice-cold feeling poured into his blood, instantly alleviating the heat in Qiu Jin’s body.
Qiu Jin was befuddled by the quick chain of actions. He raised his head in disbelief: “What are you doing?”
“You may be in estrus.” Ji Shenxiao expressionlessly pulled out the needle, and got up to made a call.
“Yes, make preparations right now, the sooner the better, I will come over right away.”
It wasn’t until that moment did Qiu Jin finally figured out what had happened. He immediately flushed red. He… He had thought that Ji Shenxiao wanted to… that… with him…
“Pack your things, I will send you back to Beijing.” Ji Shenxiao’s voice came from above his head.
Qiu Jin was stunned: “Why so urgent?”
The other man countered: “You’re not anxious?”
Qiu Jin was silent for a moment, but soon made a decision. Differentiating into a different ABO gender at an older age wasn’t a problem. The problem was his Pheromone Induction Syndrome.
Because they had to come back half a month later, they only took a few things with them when they left this time. Ji Shenxiao didn’t call anyone else. He drove the car directly out of the garage.
When Shan Wen heard the noise, he threw on his clothes and got up to take a look: “Where are you going so late at night?”
Ji Shenxiao nodded at him: “I have some urgent matter. I’m leaving first.”
Shan Wen said a perfunctory “safe travels,” but he did not expect there to be someone else in the shotgun seat. Surprised, he said: “Qiu Jin is also leaving?”

Qiu Jin nodded: “En, I also have something to attend to.”
Shan Wen waved: “Be careful when driving at night.”
Ji Shenxiao was originally scheduled to return to Beijing tomorrow. The private jet was already waiting at Lanhou Island Airport. After receiving his call, the jet was soon ready to go. In just three hours, Qiu Jin returned to his apartment in Beijing.
It was four in the morning.
Ji Shenxiao rolled down the car window and said to Qiu Jin, “I will pick you up at nine tomorrow.”
When he said this, half of Ji Shenxiao’s face was hidden in the shadows, and it looked a bit profound and reserved, but his eyes were bright enough to attract anyone’s attention.
Qiu Jin didn’t quite understand: “Why would you help me?”
Ji Shenxiao: “I am not helping you, I am helping myself.”
In his thoughts, Qiu Jin echoed: “helping myself?”
Although it was somewhat mystifying, the other party did indeed help him out, so Qiu Jin performed a ninety-degree bow and said thank you sincerely.
Ji Shenxiao’s mood seemed to be rather good. With a smile in his voice, he said: “All right now, pay attention to safety on the road.”
The author has something to say:
Qiu Jin: “Helping myself?”
Ji Shenxiao: Helping my wife.
