Chapter 18: Just laugh until you DIE!
Editor: Angie & Sae
In school, it wasn’t strange that boys were often seen shirtless, especially right after physical education class. Normally, this was not something that anymore would heed much attention to, but in the grand plan of things, there was always an exception. Gu Hai was probably the only exception. With his tone and muscular body attractive enough to walk the runway, what man wouldn’t envy him?
Back in the classroom, everyone was still talking about Gu Hai and unsurprisingly their eyes were locked solely on him. Feeling their eyes on him, Gu Hai quickly started to get dressed. Otherwise, people would suspect that he just wanted to show off.
He grabbed his uniform and put both of his hands inside. But when he tried to push his head through the neckline, uhhh……
Go in, go in! What the hell? Why can’t my head get out?
Feeling puzzled, Gu Hai then took out his head, looked at his uniform, and found a serious problem.
Why does my jacket only have two holes? The neck? Where did the neck go?
Gu Hai hastily checked his uniform. Then, with a heavy heart, he saw a black line along the neckline, just like little ants gathered together before a rainfall.
The hell, the neckline was stitched together. How could this happen?
Blanking out for a moment, Gu Hai then quickly checked the inside of his drawer.
The needle and thread had completely disappeared!
Glancing up, he immediately noticed that Bai Luo Yin’s seat was empty and the person himself was missing. As Gu Hai twirled his head around, he was greeted with a faint smile, plastered guilefully on Bai Luo Yin’s bright face. Gu Hai, who was still bewildered, wasn’t even aware of how long he had been standing there, but judging from the look on his face, it was clear that he thoroughly enjoyed what he saw.
Bai Luo Yin simply watched Gu Hai’s expression before he slowly walked to his own seat, sat down silently, and then, suddenly…
No longer able to hold back the laughter that beckoned to crawl out, he burst out laughing, to the point that he pounded his hand hard on his desk.
You Qi, who sat in front of him, was shocked the moment he heard the loud cackling sound from behind him. Personally, he had never seen Bai Luo Yin laugh that much before. So when he turned his head, he was even more surprised when he saw that Bai Luo Yin had laughed until tears were flowing down the corners of his eyes. He continued to laughed, unable to control his emotions.
“What caused you to become like this?”
You Qi’s question didn’t get any response, since Bai Luo Yin got too carried away with laughing.
For some unknown reason, when Gu Hai saw Bai Luo Yin laughing so joyously like that, he felt mystified instead. It was as if he couldn’t choose between the mixed feelings that encircled his mind. Simply put, he had no idea whether he should cry or laugh.
Well, who can he blame? He was the one who bought the needle and thread and sneakily cut holes in someone else’s uniform. Since that someone had done the same thing to him, what can he say? Pushing those thoughts aside for the time being, he quickly tried to open the stitches. If he had known earlier that this disaster would happen, he wouldn’t have bought threads that held on so strongly. Unsuccessful with tearing it out by hand, Gu Hai looked everywhere for something to cut the thread with.
The bell rang. Whether Gu Hai was standing or sitting down, his hands was still battling with his uniform in an all out battle to open it. But, it was obvious that the stitches were really tight and held tightly together. Even after struggling for a long time, he only managed to open it just a bit.
Unfortunately, the next period was chemistry class with a female teacher in her early fifties who was known to be strict and relentless in nature. As she spread out the lesson sheets for the day on her desk, her eyes scrutinized the whole class. Then, she saw Gu Hai.
“You! Boy in the last row! This class doesn’t require you to be naked!”
At the loud sound of those words, all eyes immediately flew toward Gu Hai. Without even looking at them, Gu Hai could see the meaning behind their gazes.
So what if he was excellent in P.E. class, does he have no shame trying to act cool in class?
“Teacher, I have a slight problem with my uniform. I will deal with it immediately.”
After he said that, Gu Hai started to open the stitches again, but it was too hard for him. Ten minutes had passed, but he had only managed to undo half of them.
“I’ll only say this once more. If you like being naked that much, just go outside right now. I don’t care how other people look at you, but DO NOT be naked in my class. This will affect the mood of my lecture.”
Gu Hai looked at Bai Luo Yin whose shoulders were shaking from his laugh.
“You, just how much thread did you use?”
“I sewed it the same number of pull-ups you did.”
Why did he do this to him? He was tired, full of sweat, and he’s still being toyed around with!
Bai Luo Yin rubbed his stomach trying to calm it down. He really had no more strength left to laugh and it was likely that he won’t have any strength to walk home either.
At a loss, Gu Hai finally went outside the class. Standing out there, he continued to remove the stitches but by the time he managed to open them all, class had ended.
The bell rang. Gu Hai went back into the classroom and noticed that Bai Luo Yin was packing up his belongings. When Bai Luo Yin saw Gu Hai, he couldn’t help but to smile again.
Gu Hai suddenly grabbed Bai Luo Yin and glared at him. “So now you know how to laugh, huh?”
“I’ve always been able to laugh!”
Seeing the mess on Gu Hai’s uniform neckline, Bai Luo Yin laughed out loudly again.
Gu Hai gave Bai Luo Yin a rough push and went back to his own seat.
“Just laugh until you die, you bastard!”
