Dad, get married!

When Bai Luo Yin went home, he saw a huge crowd near his house.
Everyone of them held something in their hands, they threw it towards the middle space while cursing.
Some people in the inner circle even began to hit with their hands. Bai Luo Yin is tall, so it wasn’t hard for him to see clearly what was actually happened in the middle of the crowd. One person laid on the ground, suffered the attack from everyone around him. Some people threw vegetables to him, some people threw raw eggs to him, some people threw gravels to him…..
“If I didn’t read today’s evening paper, I wouldn’t know there are this kind of person in this world!”
“Right! How can this person is so rotten like this?”
“I watched him on the TV, he made my food tastes bad!”
“This kind of scum needs to be jailed immediately, so he won’t be able to harm other people!”
When Bai Luo Yin saw Uncle Liu from the next alley brought a newspaper in his hand, he softly asked,
“Uncle Liu, can I take a look at your newspaper?
Uncle Liu lowered his spectacles and raised his eyelids to look at Bai Luo Yin, then he gave the newspaper to him. Uncle Liu patted Bai Luo Yin’s shoulder, “Boy, it was hard for you. When you come home later go and comfort your father, tell him not to take it to his heart. No need to argue with that person anymore. All of us knew what kind of person your father is….”
“Yes!” Auntie Zhang went along with him, “That day I said some bad things about him, I think he must’ve heard that, when you go home later please help me to apologize to him.”
After Bai Luo Yin went inside his house, he could still hear shouts from the outside.
“Don’t come here in the future, I’ll hit you once I see you here!”
“If you dare to go to Xiao Zhou’s restaurant again, I won’t let you off!”
“Scram! Get lost quickly!”
The newspaper inside his hand was gripped so much, that it was crumpled so badly. The whole page on the front page was about this matter. It seemed that the editor snatched the manuscript that was supposed to be edited first, the picture attached was also a candid picture. Even TV station news, needs to be filtered one by one, so it’s very rare for an issue to come out on the news at the very same day.
Bai Luo Yin knew that the hype of a news depends on luck, but to make a news media to report this definitely needs a strong connection.
There were a lot of elderly people, they hardly used internet, so their information must be either from newspaper or from television. Besides, these people are really close to Bai Han Qi, their opinion and attitude will influence Bai Han Qi’s feelings. So Bai Luo Yin really needs supports from these media…
Gu Yang was in the corner of the living room, ironing his trousers. From time to time he glanced sideways at Gu Hai. Gu Hai was watching a ball game on TV, while gripping his mobile phone firmly in his hand. He had maintained his stiff posture for a long time already.
Gu Yang lightly coughed a few times, then he coldly asked, “Why are you so focused when you’re just watching an advertisement?”
Gu Hai’s gaze was focused on the TV screen. He picked up the remote, casually changed the channel.
Gu Yang silently took his own phone, then he sent one text message to Gu Hai.
Gu Hai was surprised, it was as if the moment that he had been waiting for has arrived. He immediately adjusted his position, raised his phone up, then opened the screen. His face had this unexplainable excitation, the contour on his face from his forehead to his jaw emitted such a delightful expression.
Soon enough, he found out that it was just a blank message, the sender was Gu Yang.
His face suddenly darkened, slowly he shifted his gaze towards the back.
“Are you looking for trouble?”
Gu Yang placed the trousers that he just ironed at the side, then carefully piled them. He swept his sharp gaze over Gu Hai’s face.
“I sent it by mistake.”
Gu Hai wanted to shout, do you think it’s easy for me to wait for a call? You sent a wrong text to me, do you know just how much feelings I’ve wasted on you?!
“Are you waiting for a call?” Gu Yang sat beside Gu Hai.
Gu Hai threw his phone to the side, he deliberately put on an arrogant and frivolous expression,
“Whose call am I waiting for? Do I wait for your call?!”
“I dont know about that.”
Gu Hai stood up and went to the toilet. Because he waited the phone call for a long time, his bladder almost bursted.
Gu Yang stared at Gu Hai’s back, he raised the corner of his lips slightly. Only at the time when he look at his dear little brother, that a bit of warmth could appear on his face.
Not long after Gu Hai entered the toilet, his phone rang. It was a text message.
“The text message that you have been waiting for is here.”
Gu Hai wiped the waters on his hand, he looked at his phone beside Gu Yang.
“I told you already, I’m not waiting for a text.”
Gu Yang saw that Gu Hai’s eyes were overflowed with anxieties, he couldnt help but to sneer in his mind. Since you were small until now everything in your mind is always written on your face, and you still want to hide the truth from me?
“Then you dont need to see it.”
After he said that, he placed Gu Hai’s phone to his other side.
Gu Hai took a glance at Gu Yang, the latter was staring at him, as if he was waiting for Gu Hai to make fools of himself. Since they were small until now, Gu Yang had the most interest at figuring out where is the limit of Gu Hai’s psychological barrier, then he would break through that barrier in one go. Gu Hai’s heart skipped a beat, he picked up the TV remote and continued to change the channel. His facial expression stiffened, he refused to admit his defeat.
Five minutes passed, Gu Hai’s phone rang again from another text message.
Gu Yang sat on the sofa leisurely while eating melon seeds, with his legs crossed. He was full of determination to win.
Gu Hai’s heart was like a sandbag, and those two text messages were like two punches aimed at him fiercely. Every minute felt like a training that exceeded his own ability, Gu Hai didn’t notice that his own fingers tapped on the sofa armrest over and over again. He straightened his back as if it was an iron plate, his lips opened slightly….. All of those signs exposed his current feelings, restless with anxieties, out of his wits.
This silence was soon interrupted by a ringtone from Gu Hai’s phone. Gu Yang picked up the phone and looked at the screen.
“Yin zi….. It seems like it’s a phone call from your little brother. Do you want me help you to hung up this call?”
Gu Hai was like a wild leopard dashing out from within a thick forest atop a mountain, he threw himself on top of Gu Yang’s legs and snatched the phone from his hand. Seconds later, he anxiously paced back to his own bedroom and slam the door shut. This vivid and thorough bromance between these two people have unfolded brilliantly and reached an extreme emotional peak.
Bai Luo Yin sent two text messages and Gu Hai didn’t reply at all, so Bai Luo Yin immediately called him. He waited for so long for the call to connect. Once it was connected, no one said anything. Not even a
The words Bai Luo Yin wanted to say seemed to stuck in his mouth.
Both of them stayed silent for a long time. Gu Hai spoke first, his tone was cold and harsh.
Bai Luo Yin stood underneath the jujube tree, looking at Ah Lang who is wagging his tail, and asked, “Did you find the reporters?”
GH replied coldly, “It wasn’t me.”
“You didn’t tell me about your problem. Why the hell should I call the reporters for you?” Gu Hai’s words were harsh, “Aren’t you very capable? You wrote that thread on your own, you got many people to comment on it, you had your own small group to create more buzz. Your masterpiece was everywhere. Of course the media would go and find you. What does that have to do with me?”
Bai Luo Yin understood it now, this guy is upset.
He is such a typical person with strong body like steel but soft heart like a beancurd.
Okay. Who made him your brother? Just let him win this time.
“I didn’t let you know because your identity is too special. I didn’t want you to be dragged into this mess. I wanted you to stay low. I didn’t want such a small issue like this brings negative effects on you.”
“I stay low? And you get all the exposure? What’s the difference in our identities? Isn’t your mother mine too? Isn’t my father yours too?”
Bai Luo Yin remained silent for a while, then he replied nonchalantly, “My mother is your aunt and my father is your uncle.”
Gu Hai’s heart felt like it was struck by something hard.
“We haven’t acknowledge our current identities, right?”
Gu Hai was unable to respond.
“I think I can solve this problem on my own.”
Gu Hai’s voice from the other side of the phone sounded much less harsh, but a slight annoyance could still be heard.
“I have never doubted your capability. I admit that sometimes, you are wiser and more far-sighted than me, you are more calm-minded than me, and you are more adaptable than me. But, you shouldn’t hide your problem from me right? Even You Qi and Yang Meng were involved in your little plan. Why did you exclude me? Can’t I help you review your thread? Can’t I help you contact the forum moderator? Am I just a rich kid who can only depend on my father’s power?”
“Do you know why I didn’t contact my cousin? It’s because I respect you. I didn’t want your efforts wasted just like that! If I really were to get involved with such method, this Meng Jian Zhi would have gone since long time ago. Why do I have to wait until now? Bai Luo Yin, your identity and mine has no differences. You can look for your mother or my father, anyone can solve this problem. Why didn’t you go to them? Why do you feel that you can solve this problem by yourself, and yet you think that I will definitely solve it using this method?”
“From the beginning until now, you’ve built the wall between us. Can we ever overcome this wall?”
This time, it was Bai Luo Yin’s turn to stay silent, until Gu Hai hung up the call.
Bai Luo Yin came out from his bedroom, then he walked towards Bai Han Qi who was playing with Aunt Zhou’s son on the yard.
Bai Han Qi stood up, he looked at Bai Luo Yin quietly, feeling touched and gratified.
“Son, you’re already an adult, you can take care your own problem now. Dad is old already, I’m not as good as you.”
Bai Luo Yin let out a faint smile, “Dad, get married.”
Bai Han Qi suddenly fixed his gaze on Bai Luo Yin, his brain was as if it stopped functioning.
“Get married.” Bai Luo Yin said it again.
“Son, I’m sorry. You’ve been living a hard life with me for more than ten years.”
“We are father and son, there’s no need to apologize. I’ve become your burden for more than 10 years too. You should lead a brand new life.”
Bai Han Qi suddenly hugged Bai Luo Yin tightly.
“Son, no matter what, Dad’s most beloved person in this lifetime is you, no one else would be able to compare to you.”
Bai Luo Yin concealed the pain deep within his eyes, then patted Bai Han Qi’s shoulder, slightly teased him, “Don’t be sentimental. Actually, I’m the one who’s sick of you. Once you get married, I will be free. I can do whatever I want to do. I will lead a brand new life too.”
One teardrop, quietly slid down from Bai Han Qi’s eyes.
