The Pitiful Xiao Liu gets Roasted
“Why are you here again?” Bai Luo Yin quickly interrupted Liu Chong, stopping him from saying anything else. He was well aware that if Liu Chong had continued, he would have made the situation worst.
“Because I still feel very sorry, I…I can’t stop worrying about you.”
Without having the slightest sense of gratitude, Bai Luo Yin lifted his head, revealing a stern and overbearing expression as he looked at Liu Chong. “What does it have to do with you if I’m injured? What are you doing, running here instead of training at the base? Hurry up and go back!”
“What do you mean it doesn’t have anything to do with me?” Liu Chong’s eyes brimmed with tears, “Major, every time something happens to me, you are always the first to rush in front of me…but, every time you run into something, you always push me away!”
Bai Luo Yin twisted his eyebrows tightly, refusing to admit anything.
“When did I rush in front of you? Stop trying to play this kind of senseless trick! If it was just the two of us, I wouldn’t care how much you flatter me but Gu Zong is here today. Don’t make him laugh!”
“Major, don’t say those kinds of words!” Liu Chong anxiously stood up and stomped his foot, “I have come to realize that I cannot blindly obey your orders anymore. If I turn around and leave again this time, then I am not human!”
Bai Luo Yin nearly lost his breath. Fuck, you’re stubborn! The army sure educated you well in maintaining your grounds. Now you’re trying to use it against me!
Gu Hai remained silent for a long time but once he took notice of Bai Luo Yin and Liu Chong tearing at each other in this unclear situation, he felt he needed to step in.
“Xiao Liu, can I call you this?”
Still stuck in a vehement mood that had yet to subside, Liu Chong twisted his head toward Gu Hai when he heard his name being called and continued to loudly expression himself. “Gu Zong, reason this out for me. Tell me, since things have come this far, how can I leave?”
Having listened for quite a long while, Gu Hai still he could not understand what he meant, “Since things have come this far?”
“That is… the Major has shown great kindness towards me. It is a debt that I won’t ever be able to repay. Now that something has happened to Major, how can I turn around and walk away?”
Gu Hai silently sneered to himself. Now, you’re biting the hand that fed you…
“How about you tell me about the kindness that he has done for you and I will help you determine just how great of a deed it is?” Gu Hai said, shooting a glance toward Liu Chong from the corner of his eye.
Bai Luo Yin’s figure turned cold as he unconsciously trembled.
Just as Liu Chong was about to speak, Bai Luo Yin roared, a roar that could shake the heaven.
“Get the fuck out!”
The words that beckoned to creep out of Liu Chong’s mouth suddenly froze and rolled back down his throat as he looked shockingly at Bai Luo Yin for a few seconds. Then, he glanced at Gu Hai, cleared his throat and turned back toward Bai Luo Yin with a rather good temperament.
“Major, there is no other meaning behind Gu Zong asking this. You don’t have to kick him out.”
“I am fucking telling you to leave!” Bai Luo Yin shouted, his eyes now a hue of purple.
“Oh…” This time, Liu Chong was truly stunned.
At last, Gu Hai understood what was happening. Liu Chong has something to say but was unable to since Bai Luo Yin kept preventing him to by every means possible.
Something must be going on between these two.
Bai Luo Yin’s harsh instruction for Liu Chong leave caused him to be completely torn and listless. He turned around and punched his backpack a few times then hung his head low without uttering another word.
After restraining himself and calming down, Bai Luo Yin said, “It’s okay now, just go back to the base. I will be discharged in two days.”
Without speaking, Liu Chong quietly took out his clothes and daily necessities from his backpack. Then, he took a large stride to the side and deliberately showed Bai Luo Yin his intentions.
“Major, you don’t need to say anything else. I have already requested time off, and since I am here, I have no intention of leaving either.”
Shit! You devil!! Bai Luo Yin’s head immediately plunged under the blanket without saying another word.
Thinking that Bai Luo Yin was still wavering, he took the opportunity to add a few words of politeness. “Major, no matter how good a person Gu Zong is, he is still a guest! I, on the other hand, am not an outsider. No matter how you order me around, isn’t it more suitable? Right?”
Right, my ass! You bastard! Bai Luo Yin has already begun to think of his own tragic ending.
With that, Liu Chong walked toward Gu Hai and gratefully grasped his hand, “The past few days must have been hard on you.”
Looking at him sternly, Gu Hai patted Liu Chong’s shoulder and praised him, “You are really talented!”
“You flatter me,” Liu Chong let out an embarrassed smile before his hand reach toward the doorknob, “Gu Zong, I’ll walk you out.”
Gu Hai actually walked out with Liu Chong.
Meanwhile, Bai Luo Yin thought that the end of the world has arrived.
“Let me ask you something,” Gu Hai’s footstep came to a halt.
Out of habit, Liu Chong stood in attention, “Please ask.”
“How well does your Major treat you normally for you to insist on staying here to take care of him without any complaints or hesitations?”
Now that their conversation has finally reached this point, Liu Chong started to tear up again.
“A few days ago, we pitched camp in the desert for training. But because of my injuries, Major had an argument with the Wing Commander. The argument escalated and in the end, the Wing Commander punished him to climb two hundred trees. After he climbed all those trees, he nearly collapsed from the heat and exhaustion, yet even then, he came to my tent and hugged me to sleep to keep me warm. He said that my leg was injured so it was best not to catch a cold. Every night, he would hold me to sleep. If it was not for Major, I would have become disabled already.”
A strong and deep sense of danger appeared in Gu Hai’s eyes but unfortunately, Liu Chong was absolutely unaware of it.
“It seems you should really stay here,” Gu Hai said, patting Liu Chong’s shoulder.
Liu Chong cheerfully said, “Then, I’ll only walk you to here. I have to hurry back to check on Major.”
“Go!” Gu Hai lifted his hand and waved him off.
While Liu Chong joyfully ran back in, Gu Hai walked out of the hospital with a gloomy expression smeared across his face.
Bai Luo Yin waited desperately for Gu Hai to come back but in the end, when he lifted his head, he saw Liu Chong charge into the room in high spirits.
“Where is Gu Hai?” Bai Luo Yin asked puzzled.
Liu Chong started to tidy his things while responding, “He left. I will take care of you for the next two days.” After casually saying those words, he hummed a tune and went to the bathroom to take a shower first.
However, when Liu Chong had finished showering, changed into his clothes, and walk out feeling refreshed, the door slammed open with a loud bang.
A face, clouded with raging temper, appeared at the door.
Liu Chong did not have a chance to react when Gu Hai bound his upper body and tied his arms behind his back with a rope. With that done, he then suspended him horizontally from the roof of the room and placed a fire pit beneath him. As the flames whooshed and the heat incessantly rose, Liu Chong dripped with sweat in less than ten minutes. Sadly, even after things has come this far, Liu Chong still does not understand why he was being roasted and kept howling in grief.
“Major, save me! I’m going to be cooked soon.”
Bai Luo Yin could not bear to look no more. Taking advantage of the time Gu Hai went to the bathroom, he walked toward Liu Chong and started to untie him. However, just as he was doing so, Gu Hai leisurely swaggered back in and stopped in front of Bai Luo Yin. Then he politely said, “If you wanted to adjust the temperature for him, why didn’t you just say so? What are you doing getting out of bed like that all by yourself?”
After saying that, he bent his foot a bit and kicked the temperature of the fire pit up a level, causing the flames to leap up even higher.
Liu Chong let out a blood-curdling screech while trying his utmost to straighten out his body as much as possible to prevent the fire from reaching his body.
Gu Hai patted Liu Chong’s face and faintly said, “It seems your Major still knows to care deeply for you! I don’t think the strength of this ‘fire therapy’ is enough. Since he especially got out of bed to increase the temperature for you so that your bones can recover faster, you have to thank him properly.”
Hearing those words, Liu Chong’s face soon wrinkled into a fully bloomed chrysanthemum.
Gu Hai firmly hooped his arm around Bai Luo Yin’s shoulder and looked at him with a smug and insincere smile.
“Are you still not going back to bed?”
Bai Luo Yin stiffened and refused to move.
“Do you want me to put a cotton-padded jacket on him?”
In seconds, Bai Luo Yin was simply dragged back to bed by Gu Hai.
Before it was time to go to sleep that night, Liu Chong has been suspended for almost twelve hours.
Gu Hai stripped out of his clothes, leaving only his underpants on before squeezing onto the bed right in front of Liu Chong, who looked at him in shock. Then he deliberately reached his arm out of the blanket and pulled Bai Luo Yin toward him in a tight hug, all the while, revealing a comfortable and enjoyable expression, finished off with a declarative smile; the kind of smile that spoke volume without voicing any statement.
This person is mine!
With just one look at the scene, Liu Chong’s heart suddenly ached with resentment.
Quick to notice the troubled and unbearable expression on Liu Chong’s face, Gu Hai suddenly asked, “Xiao Liu ah! Since you’re more than warm enough now, there’s no need for someone to hug you to sleep, right? Otherwise, how about I adjust the temperature for you again?”
Liu Chong hastily shook his head as he silently endured this predicament.
Bai Luo Yin gritted his teeth in anger, “That’s enough!! The injuries on his body haven’t healed yet. If you tie him up like that, his blood won’t circulate properly. What happens if he really becomes disabled?”
Gu Hai laughed cruelly, “You had to climb 200 trees until yours hands are covered in cuts for him. I’m only letting him roast for twenty something hours for you, that’s not too excessive, is it?”
Giving him an intense glare, Bai Luo Yin spoke, pausing between each words, “Gu Hai, you-are-really-ruthless!”
“Not as ruthless as you!” Gu Hai glared back angrily.
When Bai Luo Yin turned over to get out of bed, Gu Hai immediately grabbed hold of him. He pulled him close, letting his sinister voice attacked Bai Luo Yin’s ear, “If that foot of yours dares to touch the ground, I will immediately make love to you in front of him. If you don’t believe me, just try it!”
When it comes to matters involving the bed, Gu Hai has always been the king in control of this aspect.
Bai Luo Yin’s body dropped heavily on the bed.
Even after a little over two o’clock at night rolled by, Bai Luo Yin’s eyes were still opened and aimed constantly toward Liu Chong whose head had long drooped down as he slept. His hair fluttered above the flame while droplets of sweat dripped on the ground, creating a small pool of water.
Bai Luo Yin’s chest tightened the entire time as he looked on.
Gu Hai slightly narrowed his eyes and looked at Bai Luo Yin who eyes expressed the grievance he was feeling.
“You feel that sorry for him?”
“If it was you and I was being fucked by someone, I would still rush over to untie the ropes.”
Gu Hai’s heart suddenly trembled, causing his determination to loosen but his mouth was still not as forgiving.
“Don’t compare us. There’s nothing to compare from the start. It is not wrong or uncalled for if you treat me with importance, but you treating him with importance is definitely is not okay!”
Bai Luo Yin tightly clenched fist loosened up but his tone still revealed a strong sense of unwillingness.
“Let him go, I absolutely won’t do anything like that again in the future.”
Gu Hai has been waiting for this promise. The trembling that had overtaken his heart for an entire day has finally calmed down and beat regularly again. Exposing a small smile filled with satisfaction, Gu Hai got out of the bed and went to loosen up the rope on Liu Chong. Liu Chong was not able to stand steadily so he ended up lying down on the ground and grimacing in pain instead.
Gu Hai crouched down, his cold sharp eyes swept straight toward him.
“You remember this clearly. If your Major treats you well, I won’t interfere. But, if he has to sacrifice himself in any manner just to treat you well then I will get everything that he had sacrifice back from you little by little!”
Liu Chong, “…”
