Ch 65: Transmigrating into a demon spirit to blow up the entire world
Chapter 65: The chief executive’s little kitty 3
Li Shaolin had completely not expected the arrival of an unexpected guest, that not only strutted into his office, but also fancied his cat.
This person is Joseph, the new head of the James family that Tan Zishang had previously mentioned.
Joseph had recently signed several contracts with the head office of the Li family’s corporation, and also declared to have an appointment in advance, then in consideration to the status of his identity, had finally been allowed entrance by the female secretary.
After Li Shaolin went out, Chen Tong on the other hand worked hard to climb over the work desk, and secretly opened the notebook computer on the top of the desk.
This background of the year 2006 was really a dream of Chen Tong, even if the system had clearly stated that this was just a parallel world, holding back his curiosity was also difficult. The cat is an exuberantly inquisitive creature, it will also be inevitably impossible for Chen Tong to escape this influence. The sofa he was placed in happened to be near the office’s chair, thus, he jumped on the swivel chair with the little claws extended out.
Landing on the swivel chair, and once again clambered up on the backrest of the chair right until the work desk was reached, then pressed on the power button, finally, the paws were raised to seriously input the access password secretly committed to memory last night.
This notebook computer was mainly used for online communication and e-mails, not for storing any trade secrets. Chen Tong only wanted to browse the news, and was not the least bit interested in the encrypted folders inside, thus, going into the main interface to open the web page went very smoothly. Only the Microsoft system made Chen Tong slightly feel a bit discomfited, as it was not suitable for his paws.
The touch pad had unexpectedly did not give the little meat pad any recognition at all, as not a bit of response was also given. In the case of the computer’s mouse, the paws were once again too small, that a single paw simply had no way of controlling it, just using a pair of paws together could barely hold to move it.
The heart was miserable.
Moreover, before leaving, Li Shaolin said that coming back from the meeting would at most take 20 minutes, in order to avoid being discovered by Li Shaolin, Chen Tong also wanted to shut down the computer ten minutes in advance.
In the face of time constraints, only a rough look were done on some headlines. The headlines of the economic portion is the Real Estate Regulations of the 6 states and Shanghai Stock Exchange market reformation, the social portion is the corruption case investigated by the Discipline Inspection Commission and the common people’s social security, the entertainment portion were about all kinds of emerging local talents, as well as the such-and-such sex scandal of a talented star……
As a member of the new generation of the online forces who was almost inseparable from the internet before transmigrating, Chen Tong decisively felt that going online once again was really a very marvelous feeling, and couldn’t help but feel sad on how the first three worlds that had been transmigrated through did not have the internet. Caring for gossips were everyone’s responsibility, Chen Tong’s eyes were immediately attracted to the various entertainment articles, just at this time, the door had been unexpectedly pushed open, a blonde hair and blue eyed male foreigner immediately walked in.
The things were too abrupt, that Chen Tong had simply been unable to react for a while, it was not until the other person went into the room that he returned to his senses.
The man’s height was very tall, with a lofty and straight build, just like a male model coming out from the Armani’s enormous advertisement poster hanging from the next building. The pupils were blue just like Chen Tong’s demon form in this world, but was deeper compared to his light blue, the eyes were sharp like the beast, the moment of seeing that pair of deep blue eyes, it had unexpectedly made Chen Tong produce a kind of indescribable illusion of being locked down by a falcon.
In the next moment, he couldn’t help but inwardly give out a cry inwardly.
–Ah, ah, ah how can he turn back! Just a few minutes online then someone entered the room! Where did this fo-reign-er* who didn’t understand a little bit of etiquette come from? Not even knowing how to knock the door first before coming in!!
*homophone of foreigner
Scarcely imagined that the inward cry of Joseph’s was even much louder than Chen Tong.
OMG I am not hallucinating! There is actually a cat with a poker-face holding the mouse to surf online, and was still just a little kitten as big as a palm!! When did the cat’s in China even learn to use computers!!
Joseph blinked his eyes for several times to confirm that he wasn’t imagining things, Chen Tong aside from being discovered by this foreigner, resolved to firmly destroy all evidences first, to avoid being seen by Li Shaolin or the other people coming in later.
So Joseph who originally wanted to forcefully convince himself that everything was just a coincidence, stared blankly as that little kitten quickly use it’s paws to hold the mouse and open the tool option in the computer to clear the history records, then long pressed the shut down button to directly turn off the computer, finally, just like nothing had also happened climbed on the sofa with the help of the office chair, and drilled back to the cattery on the sofa.
The actions could simply be said to be a well-executed performance.
Joseph had been completely dumbfounded at this time. However, he and Li Shaolin were aware that this kitten appeared to be very human-like, the first thing that rushed forth to the brain was not of surprise, but was of excitement and anticipation.
The Chinese legends of the demon cats were really true!!
As a Frenchman who adored the Oriental culture since childhood, Joseph has already read a lot of ancient Chinese legends, especially the side on the tales of the mysterious demon spirits. Such as the virtuous snail lady, the beautiful fox demon, the repayment of the great cat immortal, the infatuated white lady……，——The world’s great wonders, he not only believes their existence, but had always wanted to see them with his own eyes.
Thus, Joseph who has some degree of self-regard compared to Li Shaolin suddenly felt that he was really born with a lot of good fortune, encountering the little demon spirit he longed for in just a few days of arriving in China. The man took several steps forward to the front of the sofa, the body crouched down, until the line of sight was almost equal to the kitten, then made an out of the blue introduction of himself in a broken Chinese, “Hello, my name’s Joseph, 28 years old this year, Gemini, blood type B, likes surfing and fencing, ……may I ask what your name is?”
（ ￢ω￢ ）……
After waiting for quite some time, but the only answer he received was a single ‘Meow～’ sound.
The kitten’s had an adorably and innocently expressionless face, with a set of a completely uncomprehending look, only issuing a instinctive sound to Joseph. The kitten’s cry sounded both soft and tender, accompanied by the clear limpid watery-like eyes, which couldn’t help but make Joseph’s heart issue a few chaotic beats.
Tut tut*, what is this spicy foolish pretense, ——It turns out that this little demon spirit had attended an acting school!!
*tongue click sfx: stuck to english
Even though no distinguishable breed could be seen from the kitten, but the appearance was even more beautiful than those famous cats, big and bright eyes, exquisitely soft body, smooth snow white fur from head to toe without a trace of motley hair, which seemed synonymous to the word grandeur, that anyone who looked upon it couldn’t help but want to touch.
Jospeh finally couldn’t resist, reaching out a hand to touch the soft head and back of the kitten. The fluffy texture is warm and slightly itchy making people feel addicted, the more it was touched the more addictive it was, until the sound of the opening door could be heard.
Li Shaolin who had finished the meeting had finally returned, following close behind him were special assistant Tan Zishang and secretary Wang Xi. In the next second, Li Shaolin brows were furrowed due to seeing the scene before him, even the opening of first sentence was: “Trouble you to let go of it, that is my cat, I don’t like other people to touch.”
“Yours?” Joseph froze for a moment, then bluntly said: “Li, I want your cat.”
“Joseph,” The calm face of Li Shaolin had already shown a icy fierceness, even the eyes had slightly narrowed, “We have already known each other no less than 20 years, I thought you knew my temper. My office can be entered when wanted, my pet can be demanded when wanted, ——Who do you think I am?”
But Joseph’s attention was placed on the word* pet, “Do you regard him as a pet?”
*house pet: but it isn’t usually used so…
Li Shaolin did not answer, but immediately walked forward to pick up the kitten.
Joseph persistently repeated: “I really want this cat.” Then briefly pondered for several seconds, and said: “How about this, my James family can still be regarded to have some background, from now on, your Li corporation and I can do business, whether it be on the bright side of the company or the hidden deals, I’ll hand over 30% of the profits to the Li, how about it?”
When this sentence came out, even Li Shaolin had been momentarily silenced, not to mention Tan Zishang and Wang Xi. The James family has a very wide range of businesses, gathering all the businesses then letting the Li have 30% of the profits, how much piece of fat meat* will this be?
Tan Zishang was almost ignorantly stunned by this piece of fat meat. How could a leader in charge of an influential family, who’s mind and means weren’t low, inexplicably spend than much money for a kitten? Could that cat be something like a lucky cat* or a Pokonyan cat**, that can make gold?
*fortune cat or beckoning cat found in business
**is a show of a creature that can make fantasies into realities
So much that Tan Zishang couldn’t resist turning his attention to the kitten, and analyze it carefully. But seeing it almost turn into a round fluff in Li Shaolin’s arms, and was simply minding it’s own business by nestling the fore paws on it’s body to lick the tip of it’s tail, licking it until it’s tired as the little head bowed down to sleep, as if everything that was happening around had nothing to do with him.
Apart from being a bit more beautiful and cuter than other cats, there doesn’t seem to be any other special characteristics, ah?
Secretary Wang Xi was completely stirred up. As a genuine cat lover, she couldn’t hold out against the sight of the kitty’s big eyes, if it had been a bit closer to her, she would have immediately gone down to her knees. The scene in front was even more exciting, just like shooting an idol drama, the first and second male lead match were of an unprecedentedly high class, that were genuinely handsome and wealthy, but the object of the dispute was actually an ignorant little kitten.
This is really the rhythm of the CATS* taking over the world!!
*internet slang: cool person
Li Shaolin had only been silenced for merely a few seconds before voicing a heavy refusal, “The boss of the James family actually has a big hand, however, I, the person of the Li group is not someone who is so poor as to rely on selling a kitten for a profit, I also do not like to do empty business transactions.”
Joseph had unexpectedly refused to give up, and continued to insistently say, “As long as you agree to give me the kitten, I can immediately sign an agreement. Since I can say it, I will not rely on these money, and will certainly give a commitment.”
Joseph naturally failed to deliver his commitment, and eventually left alone with a body guard. Li Shaolin brought the kitten to the pet store with a low-pressure.
The chief executive-daren was very dissatisfied.
His little kitten had managed to hook up another person after he had just left for 20 minutes, also inciting that person to spend a large amount of money to exchange for it. the more he thought the unhappier he was, so much that an indescribable burning flame of jealousy raged.
Li Shaolin has a height of 190cm, not to mention Asians, it’s also considered as tall in Europeans, such a tall man paired with a kitten as big as a palm, had no problems attracting attention. The sales people in the pet store seeing this combination at first glance wanted to come closer for a look, but was somewhat timid because of Li Shaolin’s cold face, nevertheless, the store’s manager went ahead to inquire: “May I ask what things you want to purchase?”
Li Shaolin did not know what kitty’s specifically needs, so he said: “Help me get all the necessary set of matching things for a two month old kitten.”
An attractive looking sales lady had finally taken the courage to step forward because of the kitten’s cuteness, then gave an introduction one after another: “We have all kinds of kitten food flavors, there are also catteries, cat toys……”
The little kitten that had been sleeping soundly in Li Shaolin’s chest all along the way had finally woken up. Stretching that very little waist, issuing a languid yawn, washing his face with the paws and tidied it’s fur, then opened that big limpid eyes.
Shortly after that, he immediately became momentarily stunned because of the big pile of things on the shopping cart before him.
A small claw-printed pattern on the food bowl, a small strawberry-flavored shower shampoo, a small rocking chair shaped cat claw board, as well as hanging egg chairs, ear drops, comb, one set of 7 pieces of nail repair, three pieces of kitty toothbrush……
Even the chosen toothpaste had several types of flavors, which was enough to see the extent of the buyer’s heart, this was simply a rhythm of emptying the pet store.
The kitten couldn’t resist raising it’s head, looking at the man’s face. Li Shaolin had already been long aware of the little thing’s movement in his arms, so he lowered his head to look at the other, the deep voice sounded: “……awake?”
Because of being pressed against the man’s chest, the kitten could clearly feel the chest’s vibration of the other person’s voice, so much that even the strong and powerful heartbeat of the man can be heard.
The afternoon sunshine shines through the window, the handsome man and the cute little kitten silently gazed at each other’s eyes, was really incomparably beautiful. The sale’s lady firmly resisted her desire to scream, then took out her mobile phone to take a sneak shot of this scene.
