Once they returned home, Bai Luo Yin went into the washroom to take a shower while Gu Hai sat on the sofa. He remained unperturbed, his gaze fixated on the fruit tray in front of him. Bunches of grapes were strung together on tray. After Bai Luo Yin finished showering, he came out, only to find Gu Hai still maintaining the same posture. However, in his hands, there were more than one tray of fruits. The grapes that had once strung neatly, were all, one by one, plucked off of its’ branches. The reddish purple juice flowed out, covering the entire tray.
How astonishingly intelligent of Bai Luo Yin! In just a few seconds, he was able to decipher Gu Hai’s train of thoughts. He clandestinely cursed the boy for soliciting trouble before pushing open the bedroom’s door, readied to go in.
Gu Hai’s hands slammed harshly on the table. His eyes seething.
Bai Luo Yin’s footstep stopped in front of the door as his eyes swept toward Gu Hai. He asked coldly, “What?”
“Give me an explanation.”
The concern that Gu Hai was alluding to, was none other than, Bai Luo Yin carrying Shi Hui on his back, plucking grapes.
“What’s there to explain? We were dating at that time. It’s normal to do those kind of things. What right do you have to say this to me huh? You slept with Jin Lulu! If you put it that way, then shouldn’t I cut off your manhood huh?”
This time, Gu Hai was the one at a loss for words.
By the time Bai Luo Yin squeezed himself into the room and settled into the sheets, it had already passed 11: OO PM, night time. He shut his eyes, exhaustion had long consumed his entire being. Abruptly, a pair of annoying legs stretched toward him, hovered above his legs then rested right on top of them. Those legs rubbed against his legs, molesting them. They continued to rub until his scalp became numb. Eventually, he couldn’t bare it any longer and angrily rebuked: “Let me sleep in peace!”
Gu Hai placed his hands on Bai Luo Yin’s head and turned it toward him. In the darkened night, those pitch-black orbs were immersed in brilliant rays of light, that would undoubtedly, frighten anyone.
“Can’t you talk to me a bit nicer?”
Bai Luo Yin exerted all his strength into his hand and grasped Gu Hai’s wrist, “Haven’t I been talking to you like that?”
“Yeah, you’ve just continuously been having this attitude with me.”
Gu Hai was nearly pulverized by Bai Luo Yin’s chin.
“Who don’t I have this attitude with huh?” Bai Luo Yin’s brows pinched together.
“You don’t have this attitude with her!”
Bai Luo Yin had already known that Gu Hai would sought out trouble again. And although he had mentally prepared himself for it, he was still extremely infuriated by Gu Hai.
“What kind of attitude did you see me have toward her? When she stood and waited outside of class, did I go and accompany her? When we ate, did I pick any food for her? Or are you saying, when she got into the car, I stopped her from leaving?”
Gu Hai’s eyes were wrapped up by Bai Luo Yin’s dark orbs, before he managed to stress out each syllables, “If I wasn’t there, you would definitely do that.”
Bai Luo Yin flared up. Enraged, his fist smacked into Gu Hai’s chest.
“Get the fuck out of here!”
“You’re telling me to leave?” Gu Hai’s elbow cruelly pressed against Bai Luo Yin’s lower abdomen.
Bai Luo Yin kicked Gu Hui’s calves several time and shouted, “Yeah, that right, fucking leave! I don’t want to sleep with an unreasonable person!”
Gu Hai grabbed tightly onto Bai Luo Yin’s shirt collar and pulled it toward him, asking: “You don’t want to sleep with me, you want to sleep with her? You want to fuck her, don’t you? You fucking asshole, you want to fuck her?”
The blood in Bai Luo Yin’s entire body boiled, causing his blood pressure to risen. Every ounce of patience he once held within him were exhausted, as his fist swept across Gu Hai’s face. This time, the strength was more powerful than the previous. Gu Hai thought that his nose and his heart felt the same grievance.
I only said one sentence about her, and you really went as far as to use such strength? Who has hit me, Gu Hai, before? Bai Luo Yin, in my entire life, I have only suffered under your fist.
Gu Hai’s bizarre way of thinking was the direct consequence that provoked the two of them into a fight. They gripped onto each other’s hair as they wielded their fists at one another other, feet kicking around. The bed was torn apart, from the top to the bottom. They fought on it until they both fell off and once they reached the floor, they continued to scuffle.
Actually, they weren’t entirely willing to fight. Comparatively, it was Bai Luo Yin’s hands that held more strength in them; quite a bit more forceful. The reason being, was due to, Gu Hai’s extremely harsh and sarcastic mouth. If he didn’t say anything, perhaps Bai Luo Yin would just hit him a few times, then he’d eventually stop. But unfortunately, Gu Hai incessantly provoked Bai Luo Yin.
Ultimately, Bai Luo Yin, deeply angered from embarrassment, let his feet smashed right into Gu Hai’s crotch.
That last kick made Gu Hai utterly disappointed. His eyes saw nothing but red as he stood up, turned away, and walked toward the door.
Bai Luo Yin’s chest tightened. He swiftly stood up and caught hold of Gu Hai.
“Let go.” Gu Hai says coldly.
Incapable of backing off, Bai Luo Yin wrenched Gu Hai by the collar of his shirt and pulled with all his might, dragging him toward the bed.
After he got him on the bed, he pressed his entire weight on Gu Hai’s body. Both hands, unwaveringly, held down on Gu Hai’s shoulder. Breathing heavily, Bai Luo Yin’s mind was already lost in a state of confusion as he stared down. Beads of sweat from his forehead, continuously dripped, every single drop landed on Gu Hai’s bared chest.
Their eyes interlocked and with their gazes intently fixed on each other, neither uttered a single word.
After a long period of silent, Bai Luo Yin suddenly lowered his head, releasing the strength on the lower half of his body. He laid on his stomach on top of Gu Hai before his head nestled on the spot right below said boy’s clavicle. All the sweat from his face rubbed onto the left side of Gu Hai’s chest, drenching it. His hair scattered loosely alongside Gu Hai’s ear, teasing it.
His breath a harsh rasp in his ears and his heartbeats sprinted, excessively, toward the same location.
“Gu Hai, in your heart, am I, Bai Luo Yin, such a despicable person?”
In that instant, Gu Hai’s stiffened body, loosened a bit. Actually, when Bai Luo Yin held him down, his heart had already melted into a pool of liquid.
The moment he heard the slight grievance in Bai Luo’s question, that minute temper he held within him a split second ago, had already flown elsewhere. His big hands gently caressed Bai Luo Yin’s hair, massaging them before he faintly replied, “No.”
“Then why are you being stubborn?”
Gu Hai says frankly , “I don’t know.”
“Then, can you have a bit more trust in me, okay?”
Gu Hai didn’t respond as he sealed Bai Luo Yin’s lips with his own. He could feel Bai Luo Yin’s sincerity as their lips mutually sought out one another and continued to intermingle.
In truth, he believes in Bai Luo Yin unconditionally, believes in his character, believes in his conducts, believes that his own intuition wasn’t so poor. But…then why was he still tormented by it? He, himself, couldn’t clearly say why either. Perhaps it was all for the sake of being impervious to reasons.
Half an hour later, as if nothing had happened, they gathered up the quilt from the floor and shamelessly embraced each other as they fell asleep.
The next day, after independent studying class was over, Bai Luo Yin quickly went straight to Yang Meng’s classroom.
Yang Meng was pleasantly surprised as he walked out toward Bai Luo Yin and patted his shoulder, glancing askance at his mocking eyes, asking, “Could it be ah…how is it that you’re looking for me?”
Bai Luo Yin pulled Yang Meng into a corner and began to interrogate him, “Did you tell Shi Hui my cellphone number?”
Yang Meng paused for a second before asking in reply, “Why are you suddenly asking me this?”
With just hearing this, Bai Luo Yin’s suspicions were pretty much answered. He faced Yang Meng and whacked him three times on the head.
“You fucking…she came back!”
“Can’t be?” Yang Meng was extremely astonished, “She…she…she actually came back?”
Bai Luo Yin’s eyes darkened as he indignantly rebuked, “This is all your good doings.”
“Shit Yin Zi, you’re too cool! With just one phone call, you got her to come back. Your talent is no small matter!” Yang Meng cheerfully patted Bai Luo Yin’s shoulder, “Say, did you come to thank me?”
“I should fucking thank your grandmother!” Bai Luo Yin cursed between his gritted teeth, fuming with rage.
With a mischievously cynical smile still smothering his face, Yang Meng continued to say, “Don’t pretend, you’re actually really happy huh?”
Bai Luo Yin took a deep breath and sighed. He turned, readied to leave.
Only then did Yang Meng realized that Bai Luo Yin’s complexion was truly unpleasant. He chased after him and explained, “Actually, I didn’t want to tell her, but she persistently begged me. You already know that I am softhearted. And it didn’t help, that she was on the other side, crying so miserably. How could I be so heartless!”
Bai Luo Yin let out a long sigh before he stopped and asked, “What did you talk to her about?”
“I didn’t say much ah. She just asked me about what’s been happening recently so I told her honestly. Oh that’s right, I especially mentioned your new status as Major General Gu’s stepson. He he he…”
Bai Luo Yin’s entire face became green. The traitor standing beside him, as if unafraid of death, fearlessly continued to implore, “Yin Zi, to tell you the truth, you two can reconcile. Since she came back for you, you should think about it for a bit, she would definitely stay. When you two broke up, wasn’t it because of the distance? But now she’s back and distance isn’t a problem anymore. You still won’t seize this opportunity huh?”
“We didn’t break up because of the distance. It’s because we were never right for each other.”
“What makes you not right for her?” Yang Meng’s eyes were twinkling. “Because your family financial circumstances are difference? There’s no differences now! Her dad may be a government official but your stepdad’s status is higher than hers!”
Bai Luo Yin stretched out one of his hands, “That’s enough, don’t say anymore.”
He raised his heels and left.
After he returned to his classroom, the cellphone in his schoolbag kept on vibrating. He took it out, only one message displayed on the screen. It was from Shi Hui.
“Do you have some free time tomorrow afternoon? Come out and chat with me, I’ll be leaving in a few days.”
Bai Luo Yin didn’t realize it as he directly tossed it over to the person behind him.
“Give it back to me.”
With just one look at the message, Gu Hai’s heart froze up.
You sneaky, despicable guy! You deliberately threw this difficult problem at me. If I don’t respond to this, I don’t trust you. If I response to this, I am intentionally making it difficult for myself.
“Should I reply back?” asked Bai Luo Yin,
Gu Hai hesitated for a bit before asking, “Do you want to go?”
Bai Luo Yin genuinely said to him, “I want to go.”
Gu Hai laughed until his face became numb, “Then just go, don’t let her good intentions be shattered.”
Bai Luo Yin smiled faintly, “Then you go back first.”
Gu Hai had never thought that, by just typing the word ‘okay’ on the cellphone, was such a difficult task. This kind of feeling, was exactly the same as sending one’s son to the battleground. Whether he came back or not was just one aspect. But more importantly, would he himself, be alive or not, waiting for him to return.
After sending the message, Gu Hai passed the phone back to Bai Luo Yin.
Then, from the seam of his tight lips, he squeezed out, “I believe in you unconditionally.”
The corner of Bai Luo Yin’s mouth perked up, “Thanks.”
 I don’t want to sleep with an unreasonable person!” – don’t want to sleep on the same bed
