One SLEEPLESS NIGHT

“Yin Zi? Yin Zi?……”
You Qi patted Bai Luo Yin’s shoulder a few times, but he didn’t receive any respond. Before You Qi dragged his legs to the bathroom, Bai Luo Yin had mumbled on about how he still wanted to have a good chat with him, yet after he relieved himself, this guy had already fallen sound asleep.
Should I bring him home? Or should I give his dad a call and let him come over to get him?
You Qi looked at the time, it was already past ten o’clock.
No matter what I do, it would be quite troublesome. I might as well let him sleep here.
With those thoughts in mind, You Qi gave Bai Han Qi a call, informing him that Bai Luo Yin will be sleeping at his place for the night.
There was only one quilt on the bed; it seems there was no other choice but to squeeze into one quilt tonight.
You Qi had also drank to the point where he felt dizzy and somewhat giddy, noting silently to himself as the alcohol was kicking in full gear now. Just as You Qi took off his shoes and was about to get on the bed, Bai Luo Yin flipped over. Then as if second nature, he proceeded to take of his T-shirt and within seconds, his pants was gone too. Now, the only article of clothing left on his smoothly sculpted body was his underwear.
Whether deliberate or not, Bai Luo Yin’s hands slithered toward the edge of his own underwear. In a sluggish manner, almost as though that piece of fabric was a hindrance to his freedom, he hooked his finger firmly around the edge and dragged the underwear toward his slightly bent knees. Wiggling his legs left and right as to remove the underwear, without the use of his hands, he kicked his legs up and down a few times. Soon, his underwear slipped almost too neatly to the sole of his feet.
During that time, You Qi did not have a chance to cover Bai Luo Yin with the quilt yet. Now Bai Luo Yin was lying there completely naked, from his neck, down to those toes; he shifted his body around for a while and eventually he lied horizontally on the bed.
There was a slight widening around the corners of You Qi’s eyes, accompanied by the rise of his brows. As if a bucket of water was splashed harshly against his face, You Qi suddenly sobered up from the drunkenness that had previously overtook him. He remained planted on the same spot beside the bed, with a frighten expression outlining the entirety of his handsomely flushed face.
Oh my fucking god! How did things turn out like this?
This is the first time he came to my place and he went as far as to bring this kind of courtesy with him?
You Qi rubbed his forehead, willing the dizziness that rode back away while nervous beating his chest, like hammer on a concrete wall. Hastily turning the lights off, he finally drilled his way into the quilt.
At first he kept his eyes wide open and sneakily looked at Bai Luo Yin who laid dead asleep beside him. His rather handsome brows faintly wrinkled together into a beautiful curve and the lines that painted into his lips stretch out very evenly. Each line that brilliantly contoured his face exudes manliness and brought along with it a type of charm, an enticement.
You Qi’s hand stretched out and gently touched along the outline of Bai Luo Yin’s chin. Keeping his eyes glued there, You Qi felt the short and fine texture of his beard stubbles until the palm of his own hand became very ticklish.
When Bai Luo Yin mumbled, You Qi immediately pulled his hand back.
Bai Luo Yin rolled over until his back faced You Qi.
During the entire ordeal, You Qi didn’t dare to let his gaze travel down for a glance.
After a while, the sound of Bai Luo Yin’s breath evened out and softened altogether. His bizarre action might have been caused by the alcohol finally kicking into his system. Feeling his eyes weighing down, You Qi’s consciousness gradually became a blur and before long, he closed his eyes and slipped into slumber.
In the middle of the night, You Qi was awoken by the tossing and turning from the person beside him.
Owing to the face that he had always slept by himself and having also drank more than he had anticipated before he went to sleep, You Qi was nearly scared to death the moment he was abruptly awaken.
What the fuck, why is there someone here?
Shaking the sleepiness away, his consciousness slowly wormed back.
That’s right, last night Bai Luo Yin didn’t leave.
You Qi was still lost in his thoughts when one of Bai Luo Yin’s leg suddenly crawled its way into the space between his legs, causing their legs to now stick rather warmly together. You Qi immediately held his breath, not daring to let any air escape his lips as to avoid awakening the other person.
Unfortunately, this time, Bai Luo Yin was shifting his leg around as if he was unconsciously seeking out a comfortable position to rest at, however, no matter how he tried he still couldn’t find it.
At that moment, You Qi was struggling through a violent battle with his inner self.
Should I push him away or not?
Or should I let him struggle in confusion and continue to rub around like this until he’s satisfied?
Just as he was still letting his imagination run wild, Bai Luo Yin suddenly stretched his hand out and push it straight into You Qi’s armpit.
You Qi was startled by another one of his sudden contact. It wasn’t because he was extremely sensitive or anything, but rather this young fellow’s hand was extremely cold, so cold that You Qi’s entire body broke out with goosebumps.
Quickly getting up, You Qi scanned his surroundings. One side of the quilt was wrapped rather tightly around Bai Luo Yin’s body. However, much to his dismay, his side of the quilt was missing, causing a large portion of his back to be exposed to the cold air instead.
What the heck, he shouldn’t be the one freezing……yet, how come his hands are still so cold?
Just as You Qi had lie back down, Bai Luo Yin stretched his hand out and drilled it into his armpit again. Not surprising at all, these movement were done unconsciously.
Why aren’t you nice and warm yet? This is my most ticklish spot!
Having no other choice, You Qi gripped Bai Luo Yin’s hand and pulled it out from his armpit. Holding his hands in a firm grip, he noticed that Bai Luo Yin’s hand was a bit bigger than his hand and the joints were even more distinct. He can sense how sturdy it was as he encased it in his own hands.
Once Bai Luo Yin’s hands were all warmed up, his foot also refused to stay idle. Bai Luo Yin’s toes started to creep along the quilt, seeking out the warmest territory. Soon, it naturally migrated toward the center of You Qi’s legs.
When did he develop this crazy habit huh?
You Qi mentally cursed while brazenly enduring this attack.
Just when Bai Luo Yin dug his toes into his leg muscle, You Qi had a kind of sensation whereas his nose was going to bleed out heavily.
Bai Luo Yin is normally quite a proper and serious person. Why does he become so flirtatious once he’s on the bed?
You Qi carefully took in a deep breath, afraid that any other sudden movements would create a loud sound and cause the young man beside him to act out in an even more bizarre way!
As soon as Bai Luo Yin’s limbs had warm up, he quickly returned back to his honest and well-behaved nature; even better he had fallen sound asleep, evident by the evenness of his breathing.
Once You Qi turned his head to the side, all he breath in was the smell of the alcohol that sipped out from the seam between Bai Luo Yin’s lips as it lightly parted when he exhaled. The faint yet intoxicating fragrant could easily bewitched anyone close by.
You Qi had seen Bai Luo Yin’s sleeping patterns countless of times. Ordinarily, when he twirled his head around, this young man would most likely be leaning forward against his desk, knocked out.
But, this was the first time he had seen him sleep so soundly like this. It was completely different from when one was having a light sleep. His thick brows were smoothened out, the corner of his mouth slightly rose, and occasionally he would mumble a few words that were almost inaudible, just like a small child that hasn’t grown up yet.
You Qi stared blankly at him for a few more minutes, almost as if he had fallen into a trance. It was only when Bai Luo Yin cracked his eyes slightly open was You Qi finally dragged back from his stupor.
“Gu Hai……” called out Bai Luo Yin almost incoherently.
You Qi was startled by the suddenness of this moment.
Is he awake or just sleep talking?
Bai Luo Yin’s hand suddenly smacked the bridge of You Qi’s nose. The pain ached so bad that a few tears almost fell from You Qi’s eyes.
“Give me some water,” Bai Luo Yin muttered.
You Qi miserably rubbed his nose.
If you want some water then just ask, why did you have hit me too?
As those thoughts swam around in his head, he felt around in the dark for the lamp near the bedside. Much to his dismay, he couldn’t even find it after trying to for a while. He finally gave up and directly felt around for the glass of water on the bedside cabinet instead.
The sound of the water splashing against the glass provoked the thirst that welled up in Bai Luo Yin’s dry throat. Without waiting for You Qi to bring the glass to him, he immediately leaped forward and grab hold of the glass himself, gulping it all down in only a few mouthfuls.
After he finished drinking, he placed the glass down and immediately pressed his entire weight down on You Qi’s body without budging.
It was all too evident that from beginning to the end, he wasn’t awake at all. All his actions thus far were done by instinct alone.
However, You Qi was actually suffering tremendously. Needless to say, Bai Luo Yin pressing his body heavily onto his was one thing, but the thing was, he wasn’t fucking wear any clothes!
Bai Luo Yin’s head crooked into the side of You Qi’s shoulder, with the upper half of his body plastered like glue to his. But the most frightening thing was, the soft little fellow between his leg was hanging out at You Qi’s belly……not even a layer of fabric separated such intimate contact.
What the fuck is this called?
You Qi tried his hardest to restraint the sinister thoughts forming in his head. Little by little, he peeled Bai Luo Yin off his body. So long as his thoughts deviated to such nature, he would warn himself straightaway:
It’s a conditioned reflex that caused him to glue to you like this, or he’s treating you as Gu Hai. It’s best if you don’t do anything stupid, otherwise you’ll suffer greatly!
Struggling bitterly for more than half the night, You Qi was finally able to fall into a deep sleep once the sky started to lighten up.
Early in the morning, the alarm clock rung for a long time before Bai Luo Yin finally woke up.
Last night, You Qi was so tired that he didn’t even hear it when the alarm sounded off.
Bai Luo Yin grabbed the alarm clock and looked strangely at it, then he casted a quick glance at the person beside him.
Which big star crawled into my bed?
This unparalleled small and handsome face is refreshing to look at first thing in the morning.
Ignoring who the person beside him was first, Bai Luo Yin did what he thought was most important which was to shut the alarm clock off since he wanted to sleep for a while longer.
But after trying to switch it off for what seemed like an entire day, it didn’t work; the alarm was still screaming in his face and hurting his inner ears. Rubbing his eyes, Bai Luo Yin watched as a mathematical question appeared on the surface of the alarm clock.
Is it possible that once the question is resolved, it will stop barking out so loudly?
With nothing else to lose, Bai Luo Yin gave it a try. He inputted the answer and the alarm stopped for a few seconds, then it started to ring again before a riddle suddenly appear on the surface. Once Bai Luo Yin finally guessed the answer, a maze popped up on the surface. With great difficulty he solved it but sadly, another mind-boggling riddle teased his brain……
By the time Bai Luo Yin resolved all the questions, the tiredness that once consumed him had sailed away already; he was no longer trapped by sleepiness.
This thing is fucking awesome!
Bai Luo Yin decided that he must buy one when he returned home.
After he finished fiddling with the alarm clock in his hand, Bai Luo Yin looked at his surroundings, before twisting his head around to take a quick look at You Qi.
Although he had drunk a bit more than usual last night, but nevertheless his conscious was clear the entire time. He remembered everything that had occurred, but what he doesn’t have any impression of was everything else that happened after he had fallen asleep.
The place that You Qi rented was pretty good. Although it wasn’t as good as his and Gu Hai’s small nest, it was better than the place that Gu Hai had rented before.
Just as Bai Luo Yin lifted the quilt up and was about to put on his clothes and get off the bed, he immediately became dumbfounded instead.
Fuck, where did my underwear go?
Turning around to look at You Qi, he immediately dispelled the thoughts in his head
What’s he doing taking off my underwear?
He slightly scrunched his face and rummaged through his thoughts.
Most likely it because you’re used to sleeping naked at home, that’s why this habit broke out when you were already deep in sleep. Fortunately, You Qi is a man, otherwise this misunderstanding would have snowballed into something bigger.
Bai Luo Yin quickly put on his clothes and got off the bed before running straight into the bathroom and splashing cold water on his face as to rinse it off. Then he sauntered back into the room to wake You Qi up.
You Qi opened his drowsy eyes and looked at Bai Luo Yin, asking, “What time is it now?”
Bai Luo Yin was tying his shoelace when he heard the other boy’s voice, without raising his head, he said, “Hurry we’re late.”
Sighing, You Qi let his head fall back heavily onto the pillow.
I’m going to be late anyways, might as well sleep a bit longer.
Once Bai Luo Yin saw You Qi lying back down again, he advanced toward the bed and forcefully gripped his shirt collar, pulling him up. Narrowing his eyes at him, he started to berate him with a rather cold tone, “I’m already up and you’re still wasting time? Hurry up now!”
You Qi weakly propped his upper body up against the bed of the bed. After being pressed heavily beneath Bai Luo Yin’s weight for half the night, his ribs were still sore and hurting right now. With confusion riding his mind, he eyes swept towards Bai Luo Yin.
This guy is full of life and energy; when he walks it’s like he’s floating on air, and when he stands motionless, he like a rifle. He can be as manly as he wants.
It’s fucking hard to imagine that the young guy that glued himself heavily on my body last night and this guy now could be the same person!
Staring at himself through the mirror, Gu Hai could easily tell that he had lost at least five pounds. There were some obvious changes marking his face; the lines around his eyes were jet black, his lips a shade of purple, accompanied by hollow cheeks and unkempt beard……
……this was a grand manifestation of being lovesick.
Since Bai Luo Yin was not beside him, Gu Hai doesn’t even have the strength to wash his face, nor did he bothered with his appearance, seeing as he wore the same clothes from morning until late night.
Looking at his enervated state, even Gu Yang became weary.
“Look, even if we’re busy, we still have to get along right?”
Gu Yang brought a cup of coffee toward Gu Hai while at the same time, taking the chance to look up and down at his face drawn with no will left to live.
“Did I mistreat you huh? You get three proper meals a day and eight full hours of sleep. Even I don’t have the luxury of living such a grand lifestyle.”
Gu Hai shot him a deadly glance, his voice was so restless, it sounded hoarse.
“I don’t care if you don’t give me any food, or make me stay up all night helping you handle things. I don’t have any complaints as long as you let me make a phone call.”
Gu Yang laughed faintly, “Who do you want to call?”
No words came out as Gu Hai remained silent.
Gu Yang asked again, “You want to call your little brother?”
“You don’t need to care about who I call. Just tell me if I can or not, okay?”
Gu Hai twisted his head around and walked away.
“There’s a telephone booth outside not too far from here. I don’t have any objection if you go out and make a call.”
Are you Addicted?
