Despicable Little Leader
◙ ◙ ◙ ◙ ◙
For the entire afternoon, Bai Luo Yin was in the workshop making adjustments to the new fighter aircrafts. Midway through his work, he hasn’t even given himself a chance to quench his thirst. When he arrived, the sun was hanging high in the sky, formidably claiming its place. But by the time he walked out, the sky was already sheathed by darkness. After what felt like an endless day, his body seemed to have contorted into a broken plane. Even so, he had to drag his tired feet back to the research room to check on the progress of the project.
During the whole time, Bai Luo Yin’s cell phone had been lying around in his dorm. When he returned and picked it up for a quick glance, he noticed that he had seven to eight missed calls.
Shit! It’s already past eight o’clock, dinner should have been delivered!
Bai Luo Yin quickly rushed to the entrance and saw a familiar silhouette standing there, patiently waiting. The person turned his head around when Bai Luo Yin patted his shoulder, revealing his two very red ears that had withstood the cold weather.
“Have you waited long?” Bai Luo Yin asked with an extremely courteous tone.
The person that Gu Hai had temporarily hired to deliver these meals, was Huang Shun. When Gu Hai did not have any free time to come over, Huang Shun would take his place.
“No, I have only been here for half an hour. Gu Zong has to work overtime today, so the meal was prepared later than usual.”
With that said, he opened the car door and took out the warm lunchboxes before handing them over to Bai Luo Yin.
An expression of thankfulness warmed Bai Luo Yin’s face, “Thanks, and sorry for troubling you.”
Huang Shun happily replied, “It’s no trouble at all, this is my job.”
“How about you come to my room and have a seat? We can have a chat.”
“There’s no need to,” said Huang Shun, waving his hand to kindly decline. “I also have to go back home for dinner.”
Bai Luo Yin fished out two red bills and attempted to shove them into Huang Shun’s pocket. “Sorry for holding you up today.”
Huang Shun hastily pushed them away, “Don’t, don’t, don’t… this is very inappropriate! Gu Zong has already given me money…”
“You can just hold on to it!” Bai Luo Yin stubbornly shoved the bills back, then turned and walked away.
Huang Shun wanted to chase after him but it was useless. He helplessly forced the money into his pocket and drove off into the distance.
Bai Luo Yin happily carried the warm food to the research room. Just as he pushed the door open, some engineers that were standing around chatting, quickly dispersed and went back to their respective seats. Without much thought, Bai Luo Yin calmly walked back to his own seat and started to eat his meal while auditing the project’s information.
This moment was Bai Luo Yin’s most relaxing time of the day. Every day, before he opened the lunchbox, he was brimming with expectation. This was due to the fact that for the past two weeks, the food that Gu Hai had prepared for him, was always unique. Every day, he was able to eat something different, most of which he had never eaten nor even thought of before. He had quickly surmised that these were all new dishes that Gu Hai had mastered.
As far as Bai Luo Yin was concerned, being able to eat and work like this, was equivalent to pure entertainment.
The engineer that sat closest to Bai Luo Yin, was Gan Wei Qiang. For the past few days, this guy had been observing him very closely, and had noticed that Bai Luo Yin always ate from a lunchbox. Moreover, the aroma from that lunch box floated around the room, tugging at his nostrils and causing great envy. Simply speaking: that aroma alone was enough to make a person die from craving.
“-cough, cough- Hey, Xiao Bai Tongzhi!” Gan Wei Qiang shouted, unable to keep his mouth closed.
Bai Luo Yin shot him a glance from the corner of his eye. “What?”
“From where did you order that take-out, huh? How come it looks so delicious?” Gan Wei Qiang craned his neck to take a closer look.
The corner of Bai Luo Yin’s lips rose into a smirk before proudly said, “This meal of mine is one of a kind in all of China. It’s impossible for you to buy it anywhere.”
This was the first time Gan Wei Qing has seen such a lively expression on Bai Luo Yin’s face. He had indeed discovered that this guy was a complete foodie through and through. When it came to other matters, he showed a rather indifferent attitude, but once that lunchbox was in his grasp, his mood would immediately change. Therefore, at this moment, if someone were to chat or ask him something, they would definitely not suffer a rejection.
“Let me try some!”
Bai Luo Yin turned away, letting his back face Gan Wei Qiang. It was quite obvious what he meant.
Gan Wei Qiang clicked his tongue, “Bai Shouzhang, you’re being very stingy. It’s not like I intend to eat a lot, I just want to try it.”
“No, you can’t have any!” Bai Luo Yin was not joking around at all.
Hearing that stern reply, Gan Wei Qiang helplessly let out a laugh. “How about we do it like this… Xiao Bai, I’ll give you some money. Tomorrow you can just order a set for me too. What do you think?”
“I just told you, it’s one of a kind—in all of China. It’s sold exclusively to me!”
Nevertheless, Gan Wei Qiang refused to give up, “Xiao Bai, was this meal made by your wife?”
Once those words escaped his lips, everyone in the research room seemed to have woken up with excitement, each person wearing a rather ‘gossipy’ expression as they turned to face Bai Luo Yin. They were extremely curious as to exactly what kind of fairy was able to capture a creature like Bai Luo Yin.
However, seeing the way he was protecting his food as if his life depended on it, confirmed one thing: in order to capture a man’s heart, you must first capture his stomach.
Recently, it has been reported that a famous commander was transferred over to the unit, so the military disciplinary division had been especially strict. By the time Bai Luo Yin left the research room, it was already past ten o’clock, yet he still had to go for a stroll around the barracks. Upon seeing how the some of the soldiers slept, he grabbed a few and punished them, as an example to the others.
Truth be spoken, Bai Luo Yin’s intimidating demeanor was only ineffective with Gu Hai, while for all soldiers, it was a look of authority that demanded respect. When these soldiers would chat at night before going to sleep, just the mention of Bai Luo Yin’s name would leave a lingering fear not only in their minds but also their expressions. Practically all the new soldiers have at one point been reprimanded by him.
Accompanied by just a flashlight, Bai Luo Yin firmly paced back and forth to every nook of the barracks.
“…yeah… don’t… it’s too deep…”
“Where… I haven’t even pushed it all the way in yet…”
“Ahhh… it’s so big… ah… I beg you…”
“Beg me? …Are you begging me to stop or to continue…?”
Bai Luo Yin’s steady pace suddenly came to a standstill and he turned off the flashlight in his hand. Surrounded by only the silence of darkness, the voices of those two people became increasingly clear, making it very obvious to him that they belonged to two men. Their fast panting seemed to be right at his ears, causing them to burn.
Aren’t they being too bold?
In accordance with the military disciplinary regulations, just being found out in the dorm—not to mention being discovered outside—would entail severe punishment.
Bai Luo Yin suddenly switched on the flashlight and swayed it for a second, causing all movements to immediately stop.
Taking a few steps forward, Bai Luo Yin sensed movement from his right side and swiftly swung the flashlight toward it, only to see two men wearing military uniforms staring back at him in complete shock.
“Major… I… we…”
Wearing an extremely cold expression, Bai Luo Yin walked past them, but what made him flabbergasted was that both men’s clothes were in proper order. Moreover, they were merely crouching on the ground with no hint of vulgar actions at all.
Could it be I was mistaken? Bai Luo Yin shined the flashlight around the surrounding area. It’s just the two of them and no one else!
“What’s going on?” Bai Luo Yin’s cold and serious eyes moved toward the two men.
The two exchanged a glance and mutually decided it was best to speak the truth since lying in front of Bai Luo Yin would only bring about their own destruction.
“There were two crickets mating earlier so we were… uh, dub…dubbing them…”
Bai Luo Yin felt as if a bolt of thunder had struck his head and traveled all the down to his toes, seemingly splitting his body in half.
The two stood straight in front of Bai Luo Yin with eyes boring into the ground, not daring to make another sound. Not knowing whether to stay frozen in place or to be scared shitless, one of the two pairs of legs started to tremble. Bai Luo Yin stared at them for a full ten minutes when suddenly, he had a strange thought.
If the two crickets had appeared in their home eight years ago, would he and Gu Hai also have done something senseless like this?
With this in mind, Bai Luo Yin suddenly thought that these two youngsters were quite adorable instead.
“Okay, go back to sleep!”
The two actually thought that Bai Luo Yin would fly into a fit of rage and mercilessly give them a hard time. But in the end, after trembling in fear for a long while and waiting to be punished, they only heard superficial words instead of reprimands. Truthfully, they didn’t even have the guts to believe what they had just heard, since Bai Luo Yin was infamous for being strict. How could he be so forgiving today?
“Why are you two still standing here? You really don’t want to leave? Are you waiting for the head of the disciplinary division to come and seize you?”
Hearing those words, the two quickly rushed away.
With that over and done with, Bai Luo Yin dragged his exhausted body back to the dorm and took a hot shower. Feeling physically worn out, he got into bed with his hair still dripping wet. The hair dryer was in the drawer. At first, Bai Luo Yin wanted to blow-dry his hair before laying his head back down on the pillow, but seeing that the power outlet was far from the bed made him reluctant to get back up again. As a result, he decided to ignore it this one time.
He picked up his phone and gave Gu Hai a call.
At that precise moment, Gu Hai had also just got into bed and was going to call Bai Luo Yin, but instead, the other party gave him a call first.
“Hey…” said Bai Luo Yin lazily.
Hearing Bai Luo Yin’s voice, Gu Hai’s whole heart immediately warmed up.
“Why didn’t you come today?” Bai Luo Yin asked.
Gu Hai softly said, “I worked overtime until late, and had to pack the moment I got home since I have to go on a business trip for a little over a week.”
“How long? Where are you going?”
“Shenzhen,” replied Gu Hai faintly.
Although Bai Luo Yin was lying comfortably in the big soft bed, his heart, however, was not particularly at ease.
“Then, are you still coming tomorrow?”
“Yeah,” Gu Hai gently said, “Tomorrow, I’ll bring you the last meal of the week before I leave.”
A hint of gloominess eased into Bai Luo Yin’s vision. “You don’t have to make lunch for me. Just come earlier so we can spend more time together.”
“Hehe… Are you that unwilling to part with me?”
Bai Luo Yin coldly snorted, “Then, you don’t need to come tomorrow.”
Gu Hai lovingly replied, “I’m afraid that if I don’t go, you’ll hug my clothes and cry. What am I going to do then?”
Hearing that, Bai Luo Yin shouted, ‘fuck you’ six times in a row with pausing!
Thinking of Bai Luo Yin’s face, Gu Hai’s heart started to ache.
“Yin Zi, we should turn on the video call. I want to see you.”
Just as Bai Luo Yin was about to say ‘okay’, he suddenly swept strands of wet hair to the side.
“That…I already turned the light off.”
“Just turn it back on again!”
Bai Luo Yin lightly coughed. “I already took my clothes off. I’m too lazy to get out of the bed now.”
“Did you forget? The bed that I changed for you has a lamp to the side. It’ll be fine if you just reach over and turn it on.”
Gu Hai’s voice can be gentle and pleasing to hear, but somehow, Bai Luo Yin felt that the air around the cell phone was cold and threatening.
When did I become this terrified?! I’m a dignified military officer, why do I have to listen to him? Bai Luo Yin truly wanted to bellow in rage over the predicament he had placed himself in. So, what if I didn’t blow-dry my hair, what are you going to do about it? But thinking that Gu Hai was leaving him tomorrow, the rage that beckoned to tear out of his throat disappeared.
Overcome with frustration from not receiving a response, Gu Hai’s devilish heart instantly turned dirty.
“What are you scared of? I just want to see your face. It’s not like I asked to see your friend down there.”
Bai Luo Yin gritted his teeth in order to hold his tongue. Suddenly, he remembered something and cleverly changed the topic.
“Oh, that’s right…I encountered something really interesting today when I was doing my nightly inspection routine…”
Then he went on to describe the two soldiers dubbing the crickets’ sexual escapade in full detail, without leaving anything untold. As expected, Gu Hai was extremely interested as he listened and happily asked, “How did they dub it? Imitate it for me.”
“Use your own imagination!”
“If you imitate it for me, then I won’t force you to turn on the video call,” said Gu Hai, his voice soft and tempting.
Ultimately, Bai Luo Yin was unable to withstand a certain person’s seductive encouragement and got under the comforter to reveal a leader’s despicable behavior vividly and thoroughly…
On the other side, Gu Hai vigorously rubbed himself in excitement along with the lewd sounds. But suddenly, a loud warning alarm blared.
“Crap! I have to assemble for training!”
Bai Luo Yin quickly jumped off the bed and strenuously put on his pants. He pressed his—still fully erect—manhood down in an attempt to calm it, then urgently ran out.
 tongzhi – comrade, so: Comrade Xiao Bai. The word “tongzhi” is also a slang for “homosexual.”
