Mo Di’s cheeks and earlobes were dyed red, even his slender neck had a pinkish shade.
He was caught in a trance. Mu Tian Heng…. he changed too abruptly!
Mo Di felt his body temperature was rising and his breath was burning. He was at a loss, not knowing what to do or where to go. It seemed apart from his thumping heart, he could not move any other part of his body.
“Good boy.” Mu Tian Heng wrapped Mo Di into an embrace.
This was the first time Mu Tian Heng could openly hold Mo Di instead of having to fantasize about this moment.
He kissed his hair and with gentle and caring movements, he tightened his embrace. Mo Di in Mu Tian Heng’s arms was feeling dizzy mixed with intense confusion. But he could feel Mu Tian Heng’s passionate feelings for him and how much he was being cherished.
Intense emotions surged in Mo Di’s heart. He extended his arms and firmly hugged Mu Tian Heng, feeling his straight and strong back. He pressed himself against the warm and sturdy chest and felt his cheek scalding but he did not want to let go.
“I like you too. Brother, I really like you…”
Mu Tian Heng did not speak but intensified the kiss on Mo Di’s hair. He then kissed his forehead, eyelids, down to the tip of his nose, and finally lightly on his lips.
Mo Di’s face was now burning at its hottest: “Brother…”
Mu Tian Heng gave Mo Di one final kiss on the cheek and looked deep into his eyes. The voice which had always been gentle and steady was somewhat hoarse: “Now be good, I’ll wait for you to grow up. I’ll wait till you’re eighteen.”
“But I’m a grown-up.” Mo Di looked at Mu Tian Heng with moist eyes. “I like you. Why can’t we start now?”
“Because…” Mu Tian Heng’s eyes were filled with affection, “Because after this, we will become each other’s most intimate person. This is the last month I get to be a brother to you and not an old beast. Little imp, do you want to turn brother into a perverted old beast?”
Mo Di clearly felt that his face could not get any redder but after Mu Tian Heng’s tease, he felt a wave of embarrassment and averted his eyes away from Mu Tian Heng, “That’s not what I meant…”
“I know.” Mu Tian Heng hugged Mo Di down from the balcony fence and landed a kiss on his head. “Brother likes you the best. This is all you need to remember.”
“Then you also have to remember that I like you the most.” Mo Di raised his head and gave Mu Tian Heng a sudden kiss on his Adam’s apple. “I’ve also planted my seal on you. Brother, from today on, you’re mine. Even though we are not officially dating for now, you have been claimed!”
Mu Tian Heng was instantly numbed by his kiss. He felt as though fireworks were exploding as his eyes fixed on Mo Di. “Little one, you did that on purpose.”
“It was on purpose.” Mo Di looked directly at Mu Tian Heng and his lips curled into a grin, feeling pleased with his tease.
Mu Tian Heng was on fire internally but he refrained from any animal behavior. In the end, he could only kiss Mo Di on the forehead and then gave it a light flick.
“Don’t mess around or I’ll take you straight to the bedroom.”
Mo Di: “!!!”
“Alright, let’s go back inside. It’s too sunny here.”
Mu Tian Heng laughed and returned to his dormant and gentle self, as if the heated scene just now had satiated his passion for the time being. “When we get back, we’ll divide up the work and quickly deal with Mo Si Lang.”
“En.” Mo Di responded then quickly dashed back to the room. It seemed Mu Tian Heng’s bedroom threat had him scared.
Mu Tian Heng was filled with fondness and amazement looking at Mo Di’s back.
When they finally settled down to deal with the issue at hand, Mu Tian Heng contacted Li Cheng’s group to split the tasks: Li Cheng, Meng Te, and Edmund will check on the female assistant. The George brothers and Mu Tian Heng will deal with Qin Cheng Yi. Mo Si Lang was left to Mo Di who was the most familiar with him.
Lai De Si would join them in the evening when he got off work.
The group investigated for three days and they really did find out a lot.
Mo Di was the first to make a breakthrough. He tracked the aliases that spread the diary in several forums online and found their IP addresses. Although they were pinging all over the place, he managed to trace their routes and ended up with two real IPs that are linked together. These were the accounts Mo Si Lang used to ‘advocate’ his fans and distributed the false diary.
But the location was quite a distance from the Mo villa, he could not prove Mo Si Lang was behind them. This did not cause Mo Di to lose heart. He persevered and by the following day, he finally found the link that proved Mo Si Lang was the perpetrator. He immediately organized all the information and saved it in a USB stick.
Next was Mu Tian Heng’s turn to shine, and it was also then that Mo Di discovered Mu Tian Heng’s hacking skills could even rival his own. Mu Tian Heng found out that a certain confidant of Qin Cheng Yi’s had used two different numbers to contact a forgery expert and discussed the syntax of the diary. Furthermore, Mu Tian Heng even managed to determine that Mo Si Lang’s female assistant, Pang Jin Xuan, had come into contact with this person and they were responsible for the diary’s contents.
Mo Di was amazed at Mu Tian Heng’s awesomeness. To think he could dig up such useful information in a short time. He gave Mu Tian Heng a quick hug in his excitement then quickly noted down the IP address and continued to track their conversation.
After the hug, Mu Tian Heng wanted to hold on to Mo Di and kiss him on the forehead but before he could even move his hand, Mo Di had already run off with the code. Being left behind, Mu Tian Heng could only smile helplessly and continued his quest on the computer.
With that, Mo Di and Mu Tian Heng, and also Lai De Si who helped whenever he could, managed to compile enough evidence to prove that Qin Cheng Yi’s confidant and Mo Si Lang’s assistant were the ones who created the fake diary.
At the same time, George and Chote also managed to retrieve a message Qin Cheng Yi sent to his confidant instructing him to cooperate with Mo Si Lang and also beware not to make any misstep.
Only Li Cheng’s team was facing difficulties while finding Mo Si Lang’s instructions to his assistant. There was scarcely any exchange of messages between Mo Si Lang and his assistant regarding this topic. This showed the level of trust he had towards her abilities to carry out his dirty work.
In the end, everyone pitched in, and finally, by the end of the third day, they managed to piece together several chat records between the assistant and Mo Si Lang. Written in coded messages, they discussed the details on cursing and staging an accident on the set, which were added to the forged diary.
With all this in hand, the evidence was ironclad. They could finally prove that Mo Si Lang and Qin Cheng Yi conspired together to make the fake diary in order to instigate Mo Si Lang’s extreme fans into taking action against Mo Di. Part of this violent group consisted of a few minors and abetting minors would only raise the severity of their crime!
Mo Di could finally breathe when he knew he had all he needed to take down Mo Si Lang and Qin Cheng Yi. He and Mu Tian Heng chatted with the group about the free meal he had promised them. After sending out ten two hundred yuan red packets and agreeing to treat everyone to dinner somewhere expensive in the capital the following week, Mo Di happily went to take a bath.
Lai De Si was grabbing red packets with joy. He managed to grab one with two hundred and fifty yuan. At least it was a bit higher than the average. Meng Te was the luckiest one with four hundred and sixty yuan.
Mu Tian Heng also managed to grab quite a decent one and decided to send out another batch of ten. But when he saw Mo Di leaving to take a bath, he stopped. There was no point to send out the red packets if his little one was not there to receive it from him.
Besides, it would also be wise for him to take a shower lest they stayed to chat and he stunk throughout their conversation while his little one was smelling of fragrant soap.
It seemed like after the confession, Mu Tian Heng had begun preparing himself to transition into the unrestrained beastly stage. He automatically assumed that Mo Di would naturally stay up to chat with him after his shower. And whether or not Mo Di would let him enter his room this late did not even cross his mind.
Meanwhile, Mo Di was done with his quick shower.
The bath products in his bathroom were a set and the delicate aroma of grapefruit elevated Mo Di’s already jubilant mood.
Mo Di changed into his pajamas and was wiping his hair when the highest level of alert on his phone sounded. He quickly read through the contents his mood sunk.
A group of Mo Si Lang’s extreme fans had found his address and they had agreed to come together and help their idol ‘get rid of the pests’.
Mo Di was prepared and even somewhat anticipating the assault because this was how he could bring the hammer down on Mo Si Lang. However, seeing how those people not only hurled abuse at him but also badly insulted Mu Tian Heng, he couldn’t help but feel enraged.
What’s with ‘those who take Mo Di in can’t be a good person’ and ‘anyone who can live with such a vicious person must also be vicious as well’. Some even gave the advice that ‘they both should be dealt with, after all, minors under the age of sixteen will not be jailed’!!!
There were even older fans giving out guidance and distribution of labor when they carried out their attack plan!
This irrationality and craziness were just sickening.
At this time, there was a sudden knock on the door followed by Mu Tian Heng’s voice: “Are you sleeping yet?”
“… no brother, not yet.”
Mo Di took a deep breath and suppressed his agitation.
Don’t be mad, there was no need to get angry with these people.
Mo Di calmed down and went to open the door for Mu Tian Heng. But as he got to the door, he stopped.
Since the day they had confessed to each other, there was rarely any chance for them to be idle and alone since they had to deal with Mo Si Lang. There was no lover’s talk or a chance for him to flirt with Mu Tian Heng….
… much less exchange that ambiguous kiss again.
Mo Di quickly glanced at the mirror and tidied up his hair.
His appearance… should be fine, right?
It’s just the pajama was too childish.
Mo Di tugged at the pale yellow pajamas and felt a slight disappointment. This pajama was making him seem too much of a kid, there was no way Mu Tian Heng would be tempted to do anything.
