Chen Xing treated Zero like a child, so it was normal for a child to catch a cold in the rain.
“My… my room, it seems like the bathroom is broken.”
Chen Xing instantly understood. “Oh, then you can sleep in this room, and I’ll go to your room.”
“Oh, by the way, I just laid on that bed. Do you mind? If you do, forget it.”
Zero shook her head and said, “It’s okay, I’ll still sleep in my own place. I’ll fall asleep quickly!”
Chen Xing thought to himself that she probably minded, so he said, “Okay, then I’ll wait for you in the living room.”
“Alright… thank you.”
Chen Xing sat on the sofa, and the sound of running water came from the room.
“Phew~” Zero let out a deep breath and quickly replayed the events of today in her mind.
He Yu had saved up his spirit points for a year and used it all to upgrade her. But she didn’t receive any attribute bonuses! She didn’t even get any skills. Zero couldn’t even transform.
For an entire year, He Yu had treated her like a princess, but it resulted in this outcome. He couldn’t accept it. So he abandoned Zero right then and there.
Zero felt despair…
She was an SSS-level Spirit User, that was the evaluation of the Spirit System given by the Weapon Spirit Association to every Spirit User. But after several years, she realized that she was nothing more than a complete waste!
And then she met Chen Xing. This strange young man. Clean, calm, powerful, and indifferent…
But he was exceptionally gentle to her, saving her selflessly the first time they met. He could kill a D-grade Spirit Beast barehanded!
He could snap the arm of He Yu, a D-grade Spirit Master, with just one hand! He could escape from the pursuit of more than a dozen C-grade Spirit Masters!
And most importantly… the princess carry!
Thinking about the feeling of being carried by Chen Xing just now, her heart couldn’t help but warm up. She had the impulse to become his Spirit User, his partner!
But soon, she shook her head and murmured, “No… I can’t burden him…”
She had made up her mind not to become anyone’s Spirit User. It was precisely because she felt that Chen Xing was a good person, very powerful, that she felt she was unworthy of him.
After taking a shower, Zero dried her body, and suddenly a set of pink bunny pajamas appeared on her body out of thin air. The clothes just appeared out of nowhere and directly onto her body!
Just like the costume change in “Magical Doremi,” it was quite sudden. This was one of the functions of the Spirit System, the storage function.
“Squeak…squeak…squeak.” Zero walked with pink bunny shoes that made squeaky sounds. Only cute people could make sound effects when they walked!
There were also two rabbit ears on the hat, swaying as she walked.
She walked out of the room, and Chen Xing was already asleep on the sofa. She was about to call out to him, but then her thoughts changed, and she didn’t make a sound. She wanted to observe this strange young man.
So she tiptoed and walked to Chen Xing’s side. Silently, she watched his sleeping face.
Chen Xing’s appearance was very refined, with exquisite features that grew increasingly attractive the longer she gazed at him. She was captivated by his appearance.
Sitting on the nearby sofa, supporting her chin, she gazed at Chen Xing absentmindedly.
“He seems to be… a kind person.” That’s what Zero thought in her heart.
If San’er knew that Zero had such an evaluation of Chen Xing, he would definitely make fun of her. Chen Xing was definitely not a kind person, but he wasn’t a bad person either. He had one principle: mood-dependent.
When he was in a good mood, he would do things properly, like saving people. When he was in a bad mood, he would do some mischief. For example, when someone was using the toilet, he would snatch away the toilet paper. When someone was taking a bath, he would steal their clothes.
He would intentionally dirty a child’s clothes to make them get beaten up when they returned home! He wouldn’t eat the vegetables he grew himself, but he loved eating from other people’s gardens! Instead of using a restroom, he would insist on going to someone else’s vegetable patch, claiming to be fertilizing it.
San’er sometimes felt speechless about him. The famous Assassin God, if he wasn’t in the mood, he wouldn’t go and kill people. He would only do things that had no purpose.
Mainly because the Assassin Star Dimension was too boring! Killing people didn’t make him happy. Although he had killed many people, he wasn’t mentally disturbed. He never felt that killing could bring him joy. So he would always do these things, just to amuse himself!
He was a rather strange person, even San’er couldn’t figure out his way of doing things. He did whatever he wanted, acting on his own desires.
Speaking of which…
While Zero was lost in thought.
Chen Xing woke up!
As soon as he opened his eyes, he saw Zero’s delicate face and the two rabbit ears on her head. A bunny!?
Chen Xing felt like his heart had been struck by a heavy hammer!
After Zero finished bathing and tidied up, Chen Xing finally noticed that her appearance was truly stunning. As the number one assassin on Assassin Star Dimension, Chen Xing had countless pursuers, both male and female. He had also seen many beautiful women, so Chen Xing could be certain that when Zero grew up, her beauty would be unmatched. Even someone like him, who had seen countless women, couldn’t help but be amazed.
He suddenly felt that He Yu was a fool. This beautiful little girl, if she became his partner, it would be great to raise her as his wife!
However, people like He Yu, as Spirit Masters, basically didn’t consider Spirit Users as human beings. So he didn’t have any thoughts about Zero. Even if he did, there was nothing he could do. Because the Spirit Partner System existed! In this world, there were laws. It starts with a minimum of fifty years of imprisonment. So He Yu didn’t even think about it.
Chen Xing looked at Zero’s dazed expression and for the first time, felt that the girl was quite adorable. Previously, he only found her troublesome.
Curiously, he asked, “How old are you?”
Chen Xing suddenly spoke, startling Zero. She stood up abruptly, and a blush appeared on her face.
“I… I’m 17.”
Chen Xing looked at her in disbelief, surveying the small rabbit girl in front of him from head to toe. She was actually 17!? And he had just carried and piggybacked her… Does that mean it was a bit…
“Well… Is something wrong?” Zero was a bit confused by his strong reaction.
Chen Xing realized that he had overreacted, so he withdrew his gaze and calmly said, “It’s nothing. I just think you’re quite adorable, like a child.”
It was a sincere compliment!
“Swoosh~” Zero’s face instantly turned crimson. Her eyes widened, and her face was so red seemed like it could drip blood!
Others had complimented her on being cute before, but for some reason, when Chen Xing said it, she felt flustered.
She didn’t know how to react!
“Um… I’m done washing up! Thank you… Good night!”
“Squeak, squeak, squeak…” She quickly hurried back to her room, taking hurried steps in a flustered manner.
“Hey, wait a moment…” Chen Xing hurriedly called out to her.
“Uh…?” Zero stopped in her tracks, turned around, and there was still a hint of blush on her face. To prevent Chen Xing from noticing, she used her little hands to cover that flush.
Little did she know that this made her even more adorable. If it were someone else, it might come off as forced or affected. But on her, it seemed natural. Chen Xing once again experienced an onslaught of cuteness!
After pausing for a few seconds, he finally spoke up:
“You.. don’t have a Spirit Master, right?”
Zero was taken aback.
She could already guess what Chen Xing wanted to say. A trace of desolation flashed through her eyes.
She preemptively said, “I’m sorry… It’s not possible.”
