    The reason for Shen Yuan's wariness about getting his guest a crutch or a cane was simple. The man could probably beat someone to death with it. He'd seen crime scene dramas and kung fu films, after all. That kind of thing reenacted in real life? His insides wanted to curl up and squirm away at the mere idea.

    The reason why he had been considering it and offered it anyway was also simple. He did not want a repeat of the lap-sitting incident.

    By helping 'Luo Binghe' around, there were good points and bad points. The good point was that he was close enough to tell someone it was time to run like their lives depended on it or hamper him for a small amount of time from uh...recreating slasher movies. The bad point was that he had the sneaking suspicion the man might be willing to try something like that incident, earlier in the cafe.

    Suppress.
    Repress.
    Repress that memory, gods damn it!


    Right, focus. Crutch or cane means he might be able to get around on his own. Would it be feasible to leave him alone at home?

    The memory of the sheer amount of mess that had been washed off the man's robes and the dishrag that had given its life to clean his blade returned, unpleasantly.

    That sword was at home.

    Nope.

    Well, the man had refused the crutch or cane anyway... so the point was probably moot.

    More importantly, Shen Yuan now had other things to worry about, that is to say.... he could only hope this shopping spree wouldn't completely kill off his last month's paycheck.

    Speaking of which, sales clerks had already started bringing things after he had explained as quietly as possible that his guest had lost his luggage on the way and needed seven sets of clothes including underwear. Shit, he hoped none of his colleagues at the school heard about this or the incident in the cafe. The rumors they could spread would end him. He kept his face as calm as possible and avoided looking at 'Luo Binghe' directly as clothing was brought over, starting with the more common jeans and comfortable shirts.

    "Pick whatever you want to wear."

    Was he worried for the next pair of months? Hells, yes!

    Don't even mention the money, okay, the sooner this is done and over with, without worries of conflict, the better. A life taken cannot be returned. :V

    At least he picked quickly and the salespeople were doing their best to be flattering and helpful.

    Mostly because 'Luo Binghe' had quickly picked out black silk and brocade changshan and tangzhuang.

    Formal wear that could be worn in kung fu movies. Of course they were happy and flattering, they must be making quite a nice commission from this.

    Shen Yuan could hear his wallet crying even as he carded the purchases.

    ***

    It had been very obvious rather quickly during the first car ride and then after he had taken 'Luo Binghe' to his home, that the man burned through calories insanely fast. He had managed to finish way more food than Shen Yuan himself did, multiple times.

    Takeout, all gone. Pizzas. Gone. Breakfast, the fried rice had literally vanished, rice cooker emptied in one go. Lunch, massive amount of pasta, gone. And his stomach had still rumbled earlier, so Shen Yuan had gotten him food at the closest stalls.

    Was he possibly a bottomless pit?!

    Shen Yuan could already tell where another month's worth of salary would likely be going over the course of his stay even as he paid for groceries. Hopefully it would mean the man's bones would heal much faster and he wouldn't have to help him around anymore, thus happily avoiding excessive physical contact.

    Wait. Wouldn't that be counterproductive, given the goal was to hold him back to avoid collateral damage?! This was clearly a conflict of interest!
    ***

    Lost luggage?
    Good excuse. Very good excuse. May as well also say, lost his passport, lost everything, he has no identification papers at all.

    Let us all hope no one can tie him to the report about the blood soaked man with the sword who terrorized an entire school. :V

    Shen Yuan could plausibly just say his boyfriend was coming home from a hardcore cosplay activity. Yanno, with some wuxia fans who wanted to dress up in real duds and splash ketchup over each other. XD

    Shen Yuan would like to say blood has a very, very strong odor and Luo Binghe smelled like he just came from a slaughterhouse.

    But nice try.

    :ROFLMAO:Did you see the post before that?

    This is possibly the only time in recent years that Shen Yuan has ever pulled out that much cash to flash in one go.

    Not that he will ever tell 'Luo Binghe' that.

    Even the clunker was bought secondhand, lol.

    And no, I may call it a clunker but it isn't really a rustbucket or anything. No pieces will be falling off. It is just unattractive, dated and its various bits and pieces make weird noises a lot while it runs. :LOL:

    You can go with what you started with lol.

    And yes, Shen Yuan is desperately praying that no one noticed it was real blood -- or maybe it was hardcore wuxia fans killing pigs lol.

    Also, ketchup should be pretty expensive in China since it's imported. Just realized. XDDD

    Let us just say the urban legends and rumors will get worse and worse as the description of that incident spreads from the mouth of the students and teachers and medical staff who were there on that day. And saw Shen Yuan help the guy to the infirmary after asking him to sheath his weapon. Not that they probably caught the words, just the fact Shen Yuan went right up to the guy and seemingly talked him down.

    I wanna hear rumours of how shen was kidnapped and taken away to slowly be butchered by the crazy bloody slasher...... and student binghe going pale faced listening to all the terrifying rumours but then sadly i remembered shen called many peoples.... then again who ever seriously listens to people who have been kidnapped considering they may secretly have a sword to their neck hidden behind the phone call.

    Fufufu FuhahaHA BWAHAHAHA! *sits tight hugging unicorn plush for the coming entertainment* Squeeeee !

    Hmmm.... also maybe luo binghe vs. student binghe....... somehow it might be funny to see luo binghe be childishly jealous of his other self having a study session with shen being extra close looking through a textbook. and puts himself between them then shen and student binghe end up wasting the day tutoring luo binghe instead.....

    Also that awkward moment student binghe realizes shen is calling luo binghe by his name.....

    P.s. in china do people call people by their surname or does it not particularly matter..... (student luo?)

    Earlier, just after having gotten 'Luo Binghe' to the fitting room to change him into one of his new outfits in the paltry hope that this could at least distance him further from the rumors on the news talking about a crazed serial killer wearing a gore covered black set of hanfu robes terrorizing a private school yesterday, Shen Yuan had stopped by a rack holding hair ties, paid for a separate set of groming items including a hair brush, then, with his brows furrowed, he had brushed and tied the sitting man's hair up in a neat ponytail.

    Of course, it probably held a different meaning to 'Luo Binghe' than it did to Shen Yuan.

    It certainly appeared to hold such a couple meaning for the two salesladies who had been watching them, practically with fujoshi sparkles in their eyes.

    Shen Yuan didn't know why but their avid gazes, as he helped 'Luo Binghe' back up to his feet, really depressed him for some reason.

    ***
    Unbeknownst to Shen Yuan, the horribly traumatic experience of having their school attacked by what looked like a crazed slasher villain from a wuxia/xianxia movie had only disoriented and thoroughly scared silly almost all of the students, medical staff and even his fellow teachers. Some of whom had peed themselves in fear.

    It wasn't their fault, okay? An angry 'Luo Binghe' had the aura of a starving demon beast, about to tear you to shreds. Not being cultivators, how were most people supposed to handle that sort of thing?

    Naturally his appearance mutated betwen the accounts of the people involved.

    About the only thing they could agree on was that he had looked crazed, had long tangled black hair covered in gore, wearing black hanfu robes soaked in so much blood he left a literal trail. On the hallway floor.

    DNA tests were still being done on the trail itself, to identify whom it had come from.

    The only thing that the people of young Luo Binghe's english class could agree on was that Teacher Shen Yuan who taught the English class, had talked to young Luo Binghe and told him to evacuate the rest of the class out the other door before walking right up and confronting the slasher villain close and personal, talking him into sheathing his sword.

    The villain had then wrapped an arm around Shen Yuan in an aggressive manner and according to the accounts of students and teachers in the adjoining classrooms who had watched from the doors along the sides of the hallway, walked with him forcefully to the infirmary.

    Whereupon the nurse on duty testified that she had wrapped up a broken arm and broken leg and that the man had been horrible and Shen Yuan had said... something... putting himself in between her and the terrifying man, buying her time to run away.

    This was not encouraging and was exactly the reason that young Luo Binghe had called his shizun frantically to ascertain that he was still alive.
    ***

    Of course, he realized, as his stomach sank, just because his shizun sounded alright and calm and safe didn't mean he actually was safe. For all he knew, the man had threatened his shizun with a blade to the neck while he answered the phone.

    This was exactly why he had broken into the records room, hunting down teacher's files to dig up his shizun's address, intending to try to confirm if his shizun was alright.

    His shizun's offer to meet up for tutorials just as he promised sounded like the perfect excuse to check on his health.
    ***

    Yue Qingyuan had called Shen Yuan and later, had had thrown money at the police to investigate the supposed slasher for the exact same reason.

    Shen Yuan stated he was fine, a lot. This was because he hated inconveniencing and endangering Yue or Airplane or his friends, and Yue knew it. Knowing this, how could he let this pass by?

    ***

    Speculation about possible motives for the abduction of Shen Yuan, the appearance of the strange man, and rumors about Shen Yuan's impending demise in various horrible manners was rife amongst the media who had taken many first person accounts.

    Lol. DNA tests on the trail of blood come up as inconclusive as the blood seems to be from so nonexistant unknown creature or new species.... (or would the blood match student luo binghe since it is luo binghe who was injured too...) huh.... how would modern science explain this one.....

    This is all I could find:
    'The entire process takes only four hours at present. Hopwood and Zenhausern teams are already optimizing it and reducing the cycle time down to two hours. Once that is done, police could even double-check their DNA evidence before releasing a suspect.'

    https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/...cts-dna-with-crime-samples-in-four-hours.html

    Except, what they'll be getting will be Shen Qinqiu, Luo Binghe as victim results lol. :V
    given these are alternate universe people, I figure their results will assume Shen Yuan and Luo Binghe from this universe are closely related to the victims and given Shen Yuan's close relation to one of the victims... /eyebrow waggles

    so the trail of blood becomes evidence that shen yuan was stabbed and dragged along to the infirmary then kidnapped to his car....? Though how did student binghe get injured.... then the long lost evil twin theory starts cropping up in the rumour mill?

    P.s. is it common for school nurses to know how to wrap a cast? I always thought casts were a more permanent thing with plaster and gauze and such and splints with wood and gauze were the temporary one.

    The process of DNA testing took all of four hours on a business day. That meant that quite quickly the test results had come in and been passed to Yue Qingyuan. To say that he was traumatized by the results was quite an understatement. To be quite frank, young master Yue fainted dead away and had to be propped up by his traumatized wife.

    The blood tests indicated that two of the people whose blood samples were identified from the blood trail leading to the elevator and dribbling to a stop somewhere in the parking lot, were close matches for Shen Yuan and his student, Luo Binghe. Close as in, probably shared a parent, or was a parent, levels of close.

    As a direct result of that DNA test being spread around, various rumors cropped up. One of them was that Shen Yuan had been stabbed when he and the man were talking and then he was pressured to walk into the infirmary, whereupon realizing that he was bleeding, he bought time for the nurse to flee before following the slasher into the elevator. Another rumor was that the slasher had killed members of Luo Binghe and Shen Yuan's families and entered the school intending to kill both Luo Binghe and the teacher... except the teacher had confronted him first and drawn his attention.

    The young student, Luo Binghe, had been checked thoroughly by doctors the moment he could be found. There was no evidence of injury,as such, it was assumed someone closely related to him, perhaps a brother or uncle, had been killed by the slasher. The amount of blood found in that trail indicated the injury suffered must not have been small.

    This student Luo Binghe and Shen Yuan's files were investigated. In the end, it was dug up that Shen Yuan's health exam results did not match the results of the victim's blood on the floor of the hallway or the elevator. If anything, the victim had been much healthier, compared to Teacher Shen Yuan. The actual results were not disclosed because once the young master Yue Qingyuan had recovered, he had quickly acted to obscure the files explicitly stating the teacher's health exam results.

    Thus, the second rumor had been held to be far closer.

    It should be no surprise to anyone that once this had been disclosed, the first thing Yue had done was to frantically dial Shen Yuan's cellphone number.
