HFA Chapter 8.2


Chapter 8.2 – Convince

At this time, the aircraft had passed dozens of kilometers, and the city was close at hand. There was freshly brewed hot tea on the table and the teacup was as exquisite as a work of art. When Lu Tinghan offered it, Shi Yuan held up a cup and drank it in small sips.

After a cup of tea was finished, the aircraft trembled slightly, and they landed on the empty air force runway. The hatch slowly opened and extended out, forming a slope leading to the ground, and the Alliance’s snowdrop flag fluttered at the end of the runway. A huge black building stood in front of them, in the shape of a regular rectangle, the whole body was steel, from the bottom to the top, it was so magnificent that it seemed to hold up the whole canopy.

When they went to the ground, Shi Yuan asked, “Where is this?”

“Gleaning City,” Lu Tinghan replied.

When they entered the building, the lights were on. One person in a blue uniform came over and saluted, then stood without saying a word. Lu Tinghan looked at Shi Yuan and said: “You follow him, he will register your identity and arrange a place for you to live.”

Shi Yuan said, “We just met, and I want to be with you.”

Lu Tinghan said, “You don’t have to be afraid of them.”

Shi Yuan: “But I want to be with you.”

Lu Tinghan: “……”

Xing Yifeng, who was on the side, saw this and felt that it was time for him to make an appearance. He smiled and wanted to use his old trick again, forcefully pulling Shi Yuan away and saying that the general was very busy. But as soon as he took a half-step, he heard Lu Tinghan say, “Okay.”

Xing Yifeng’s pace stopped abruptly, and his eyes were about to fall out.

Lu Tinghan said, “I have something I need to do. If you want me to take you to register your identity, you will have to wait a long time.”

“It’s okay,” Shi Yuan said. “I can play by myself.”

Lu Tinghan: “What are you going to play? There is nothing interesting here.”

Shi Yuan thought for a moment, “I can play with myself.” He just loved holding his tail and sorting out the scales.

Lu Tinghan: “……”

Lu Tinghan: “Shi Yuan, I will be as quick as I can, please try not to play with yourself.”

Shi Yuan: ?

He didn’t understand why, but he agreed: “Okay.”

When Lu Tinghan took Shi Yuan away, Xing Yifeng murmured, “I’m done for.”

“What’s wrong?” Wolf Claw glanced at him. “Your expression is like shitting an egg.”

Xing Yifeng said, “Just, that survivor, Shi Yuan, did you see him?”

“I’m not blind. That little devil, we all saw him.”

Xing Yifeng: “He said that he hates me very much, and he wants to complain to the general. At that time, I didn’t take it to heart at all, but now I think he has decided to settle a score! Have you seen the harem drama? I was originally a concubine, and I offended the palace maid who had just entered the palace. As a result, the palace maid turned out to be the emperor’s new sweetheart! The new love is more favored than the old love. And as soon as the wind blows on the pillow, I will be killed tomorrow!”

Wolf Claw was silent for a few seconds: “I think you should watch less dramas.” He looked at Xing Yifeng and said, “Concubine? Old love? You are just a eunuch who announces the decree at most.”

Xing Yifeng slapped him on the back, and the two laughed.

After laughing, Wolf Claw touched his chin again: “But you are right, this time, it seems a bit different…”


On the other side, Shi Yuan followed Lu Tinghan.

They took the elevator to the 8th floor. The corridor on this floor was bright, with few people and few rooms. Lu Tinghan asked Shi Yuan to stay in the small room at the end of the corridor, and then entered the thick door diagonally opposite. For the next two hours, through the glass of the small room, Shi Yuan drank hot tea while watching people in different clothes entering and leaving the door.

After the seventh officer left the room, Lu Tinghan also came out.

He said to Shi Yuan, “I let you wait for a long time.” Then he took Shi Yuan to the registration hall on the first floor.

The hall was empty, with only six or seven survivors standing, all of whom had just been rescued. They lined up in a line, and the registrar behind the table was typing in a clatter, without raising his head: “Next – your ID number? Name? Gender? Date of birth?”

Before Shi Yuan could study it carefully, someone hurried over and saluted Lu Tinghan: “General, you are…”

“Register him.” Lu Tinghan raised his chin at Shi Yuan.

“Yes.” The man’s eyes swept across Shi Yuan quickly, and he led them into the small room and turned on the device. “Your name and date of birth?”

Shi Yuan was sitting on a chair, and Lu Tinghan was standing behind him. He replied: “My name is Shi Yuan, the Shi of time, and the Yuan of the abyss. The date of birth… I don’t remember.”

The man typed a few lines, and then asked, “You haven’t registered your identity, you don’t even have an identity number. Where did you live before? Did you live in the city?”

“I, I…” Shi Yuan got stuck, and the tip of his tail began to curl up again. “I don’t live in the city.”

“Then it’s outside the city? Who do you live with?” The registrar pushed his glasses, and his tone was quite excited, “There has been no sign of human activity outside the city for a long time. If you are from another settlement, please do let us know.”

Shi Yuan: “I, I live with my family.”

“Is it only your family? Where do you live? How do you resist the attacks of infected organisms and ensure food sources? Have you tried to contact the city over the years? There are many requirements for registering new residents. I must ask in detail and record it in the file.”

Shi Yuan: “……”

Shi Yuan: QAQ

He was so nervous that he held back for a long time without saying a word, and his tail began to knot again.

Lu Tinghan spoke behind him: “Skip this part first.”

“Yes.” The registrar retracted his gaze. “There are some additional information that you need to provide, such as education level, blood test report…”

Just that one was uncovered.

But when Shi Yuan answered other questions, Lu Tinghan put his hand on the back of his neck again and rubbed it gently.

Half an hour later, Shi Yuan got an electronic alliance identity card.

Printed on the electronic identity card:

[Name: Shi Yuan

Gender: Male

Address: Not available

Occupation: Not available

Education: Doubtful (literate)

Past place of residence: None

ID number: S600245]

Shi Yuan looked at it for a while, a little sad: “I don’t seem to have anything.”

Lu Tinghan said, “No.” He paused. “At least you still have your name and gender.”

Shi Yuan was even more sad.

Lu Tinghan said again: “They will assign you a place to live as soon as possible, and the results will be available in about 20 minutes. If there is a suitable job position, someone will also notify you.”

Shi Yuan said, “I still want to stay with you.”

“I can take you to your place.”

“Then it will be hard for me to see you later.”

Lu Tinghan said, “Shi Yuan, I can’t stay with you all the time. You will meet a lot of new friends.”

Shi Yuan asked, “Is it really impossible?”

Lu Tinghan: “Why do you want to be with me?”

Shi Yuan pursed his lips: “I just want to.”

Lu Tinghan tapped the table with his fingertips, and his eyes fell on the wolf tooth pendant hanging on his neck.

The wolf tooth pendant belonged to Xie Qianming. He gave it to Shi Yuan, and Shi Yuan kept it with him.Lu Tinghan looked at it for a few seconds, then carefully looked at Shi Yuan’s face, and suddenly smiled very lightly: “Then try to convince me.”He opened his chair and sat down, sitting very upright, with a serious expression, as if he was usually at a military meeting.

Shi Yuan didn’t know what to say at all.

He thought Lu Tinghan was very smart, unlike him who didn’t understand anything. Even he understood that it was difficult for a dull-headed little monster to convince the general.

But he could only bite the bullet.

Opposite Lu Tinghan, Shi Yuan thought for a while and said, “I have a very serious case of anthropophobia.”

Lu Tinghan: “Anthropophobia?”

Shi Yuan said seriously: “Yes. I will only tell you this secret – I am really very, very afraid of people.”

Lu Tinghan: “……”

This “secret” can be seen by everyone.

Shi Yuan said: “When I see people, especially many people, I get scared.”

Lu Tinghan: “Hmm.”

Shi Yuan said, “As soon as I get scared, my tail will tie a knot.”

Lu Tinghan: “Hmm.”

Shi Yuan: “I don’t like a knotted tail. I can’t open that knot, and no one else can open it. Only you can untie it in one go.”

Lu Tinghan: “Hmm.”

Shi Yuan: “You can touch my head, and you can scratch my chin. So, you take me home, okay?”

Lu Tinghan: “Okay.”

Shi Yuan: “There aren’t many things I can do, but I can help you water the flowers, clean the house, and throw away the garbage… Ah!” Only then did he realize what Lu Tinghan said, and he couldn’t believe it. “… Really?”

Lu Tinghan: “Really.”

“Then what do we do now?”

Lu Tinghan said, “Follow me.”

He got up. The surprised Shi Yuan followed behind him, thinking to himself, how could anyone think that Lu Tinghan was difficult to get close to?

It turned out that his human was so agreeable!

Under the warm light of the room, the gray-blue in Lu Tinghan’s eyes was not so cold and hard. He said: “Shi Yuan, I only have one request.”

Shi Yuan was elated: “What is it?”

Lu Tinghan: “You can play by yourself, but don’t play with yourself.”

Shi Yuan: ?

Shi Yuan didn’t understand why Lu Tinghan was obsessed with not letting him take care of his tail, and said, “Okay, then I will play secretly in the future.”

Lu Tinghan: “……”

Lu Tinghan: “That too.”
