“Let’s…break up.” XiaYao said, with his face pale as he sighs in relief.
The coffee in his hand is steaming hot, fingertips slightly aglow.

Sitting across is ZhouDu who stares blankly at XiaYao, his tone

unreadable as he asked, “What do you mean?”

XiaYao held his head down, not answering.

ZhouDu looked at him for a long time, and said in a somber voice,
“I’m asking what do you mean?”

XiaYao took a deep breath and gently said: “ZhouDu, I don’t like you
anymore, let’s break up.”

“Don’t like me?” ZhouDu aggressively said with his eyes cold, “Why
didn’t you say you don’t like me in third year when you forced me to be
together with you? In university, when you pulled me to bed with you, why
didn’t you say you don’t like me? You’ve been together with me for seven
years, and now you’re telling me you don’t like me?”

ZhouDu’s words were like a sharp knife, stabbing deep into

XiaYao’s heart of hearts, slowly bringing out all the filth into broad daylight.

That year, he did use underhanded methods to get ZhouDu to be

together with him, but it’s been so many years now, he knows he was
wrong, if one does not love you, it’s useless even if you force him to stay
by your side.

He’s now realized his mistake, so he has to let go of ZhouDu.

After quietly listening to ZhouDu’s remarks, with his fingers slightly
tightening around the coffee cup, XiaYao lowered his head and quietly
repeated: “I want to break up with you.”

“Want to split, then split!” ZhouDu rose from his chair all of a sudden
and said, “You think I care about being together with you?” With his loud
voice, it was beginning to gather eyes from the people around them.

“What’s there to see?!” ZhouDu yelled at the onlookers and then grabbed
the coat, throwing it on his back, and went out.

Once ZhouDu was gone, XiaYao abruptly bent down as he forcefully

blinked away the moisture in his eyes caused by the vapour from his

What he didn’t expect was that ZhouDu hadn’t stepped out of the door yet
but had turned back to stand by his side.

XiaYao was somewhat surprised as he saw ZhouDu appear once again.

“Still sitting around for what? Let’s go home!” ZhouDu impatiently said to

XiaYao’s eyelids slightly trembled: “I’ll…go back by myself in a bit.”

“Go back by yourself?” ZhouDu’s tone lightly rose again, “How are you
going to do that when it’s snowing so heavily outside and you’re living with
me anyway.”

This time, XiaYao slowly stood from his chair and with his head down,
followed ZhouDu from behind.

Just as they’ve reach the door, ZhouDu stopped again and looked at the
snow outside, frowning, he removed the scarf around his neck and wrapped it
around XiaYao’s. Not waiting for XiaYao to speak, he turned and opened the
café’s glass door, and walked out into the

profusely and disorderly drifting snow.

In such a narrow space, with the car heater on, the scarf full of
ZhouDu’s scent slowly engulfed XiaYao’s nose. He lowered his head and
buried half his face into the scarf.

The car ride was full of silence. When the car stopped at a crossing, waiting
for the traffic light, ZhouDu asked: “How long?”


“I’m asking you, separate for how long? I know, you’re just trying to be
difficult right? Why? Is it because on Christmas a few days ago I didn’t hang
out with you? I told you I had something going on that day; it really was
overtime at the company. I’ve got a holiday on New Year’s, at that time, let’s
go out together—”

“ZhouDu.” Xiao Yao interrupted him. “Do you……love me?” He turned

his head and looked at ZhouDu, asking softly.

ZhouDu’s ear tips suddenly turned red, and after a few coughs said:
“Why do you say that?” Then just as quickly, he changed his reaction,
mouth quirked after a side glance at XiaYao and while looking straight
ahead said: “Really? Turns out that’s what you wanted to hear. How
come you’re like a little girl when you’re all grown up, still talking about
love all the time—”

“Do you love me?” XiaYao interrupted him again.

“You, if you want to hear it, then I love you.” ZhouDu’s fingers on the
steering wheel clenched.

XiaYao hung down his head in despondency and softly said: “I see.”

As the snow grew deeper, it seems as though the city would be lost.
XiaYao felt his chest tighten, so he opened the window slightly
5 Report
to allow a little cold air to come in.

“Aren’t you cold?” ZhouDu reached out and raised the heat several degrees
in the car.

As XiaYao was ready to close the window, out of the corner of his eye he
was frightened to see ZhouDu throw himself at him.

“Boom.” A sound rang out; XiaYao did not have time to even feel the pain
before he lost consciousness.

It was noisy, XiaYao felt breathless. It seems like he was lying on the
table, and a lot of people were talking, except not one word could be heard

He used all his strength to open his eyes, but no one was around.

In the empty classroom, only the squeaking electric fan was heard as it
whined and turned. XiaYao looked at the blackboard in front; the setting sun
shining through the window decorated him in gold as it settled on him.

This is……the classroom? Why did he appear in the classroom?

Isn’t he on the way with ZhouDu?

XiaYao looked at his palm of his outreached hand, the wrist watch catching
his attention. He raised his arm up in front of him, and the time marked on
the watch was—

17:30 (5:30PM). September 12, 2008.

This date felt familiar to XiaYao. He suddenly remembered, this year is

his senior year of high school, and this day happens to be his 18th birthday.


XiaYao had no time to question why he was back in high school, he
6 Report
hastily opened the desk, looking for a diary.

There was no grey diary in the desk.

Then it should be in ZhouDu’s seat. He remembers that on his birthday

this year, he had placed that confession diary in ZhouDu’s seat.

XiaYao hurriedly straightened up, and walked quickly to ZhouDu’s seat, then
opened his drawer.


XiaYao with his waist bent looked around in ZhouDu’s seat several times and
still couldn’t find that diary.

“Hey! What are you doing?!”

Someone at the door shouted.

XiaYao panically lifted his head from ZhouDu’s seat, and saw
WangHao standing at the classroom door.

WangHao walked quickly to XiaYao’s side, grabbed his arm and pulled
him from ZhouDu’s seat.

He looked up and down at XiaYao, face darkened and asked: “What are you
doing, stealing something?”

“I……” as XiaYao was ready to explain, following behind WangHao, were

ZhangYang and ZhouDu as they entered the classroom.

WangHao quickly pointed to XiaYao “He was just looking around in your
drawer, check if anything is missing.”

ZhouDu’s eyes instantly landed on XiaYao.

“I wasn’t.” XiaYao hurriedly explained, “I was looking for something I lost.”
7 Report
“Eh, what do you mean? What does that have to do with looking through
ZhouDu’s drawer? Surely it doesn’t mean that ZhouDu stole your stuff?

ZhangYang promptly pulled WangHao to one side, telling him not to

speak anymore.

ZhouDu significantly glanced at XiaYao, asking: “What have you lost.”

“A book.”

“Ha.” WangHao chuckled, “Who wants your book?”

ZhouDu ignored WangHao and continued to look at XiaYao: “What book?”

“A book…a notebook, grey cover, very old, with no signature on top.”

XiaYao tensely pulled at his clothes, he remembered that that year ZhouDu
had not seen the diary. He had placed it in ZhouDu’s desk after school and it
was found by his friend WangHao who later beat him up in the toilet. The
matter was then left unsettled.

Later on, he didn’t know how ZhouDu saw him get beaten up by
WangHao, but instead of drinking his drink, he offered it to him, said that it
was to apologize for WangHao. It was at that time that he actually made
contact with ZhouDu.

He had a crush on ZhouDu for two years, but could never find the courage
to say a word, so when he used his whole life’s energy to write everything
to ZhouDu in that diary and place it in his drawer, the target had not
seemed to find it.

“You, did you see it?” XiaYao’s voice slightly shook.

“No.” ZhouDu gently exhaled the word, and then asked, “Why do

XiaYao opens his mouth, not sure how to explain, should he maybe tell
ZhouDu that he deliberately placed that book in his seat?

ZhouDu took a look at him, seeing as he wasn’t going to reply, picked

up one side of the bag and said to WangHao: “I’m going home.”

“Eh? Just going home? Not playing today?” “Not

Chapter 2

Following the route home from his memory, XiaYao returned to his house
back in high school. He was still in a trance as he reached the threshold.

All those who had stayed in this house with a broken floor corridor were
labour force workers who worked in the city. XiaYao had lived here since a
young age with his mom.

At this time, mom should still be at work so XiaYao found the keys from his
bag and just as he was ready to open the door, someone opened it from
the inside.

“Back already?” XiaYao’s mom said, in an apron with the spatula in her
hands. Taking XiaYao’s bag from him, she said: “Go, quickly go buy me a
bottle of soy sauce.”

To see his mom back was so sudden to XiaYao that he stood there absent-

“Still standing like an idiot for what, go quickly.” XiaYao’s mom turned
around to go into the kitchen after speaking.

XiaYao didn’t hear his mom telling him to go buy soy sauce, but instead
followed his mom into the kitchen.

“Mom.” He found his mouth hoarse after saying that, “How come you’re

XiaYao’s mom stirred the pan and at the same time answered his
questioned: “Isn’t today your birthday? I got off work early to give you a
delicious evening meal. Why are you still here? Quickly go and buy me a
bottle of soy sauce.”
10 Report
After saying that, she ignored XiaYao and picked up a clove of garlic
to cut up.

Only after buying the soy sauce and coming back home did XiaYao fell a bit
of reality. The house is filled with the aroma of dishes, the rumbling of the
chicken stew with its delicious smell, the memory of his mom’s apron; it’s
just as bustle as he recalled it.

So good, XiaYao felt his eyes tearing up. It’s

so good to be home.

After dinner, while XiaYao helped his mom with the dishes, she brought
out a red packet.

Every New Year’s, XiaYao would receive a red packet from his mom,
she had never bought anything for herself, only organizing a big feast for
him along with a big red packet.

The money is always placed together by XiaYao, after cleaning up, together
with that memory; the red packet is placed with all the ones from the previous

XiaYao’s mother is probably exhausted after a day’s work, falling asleep

when it wasn’t even eight.

After bathing, XiaYao’s eyes fell onto his mom lying on the bed,
breathing heavily. XiaYao felt a constriction in his chest.

His mom had passed away when XiaYao was studying at university. At that
time, XiaYao had followed ZhouDu to live in an unfamiliar city, leaving the
mom that he had always relied on, alone in this place, and did not even
see her one last time.

This was XiaYao’s biggest regret in life. That year, in his heart was only
ZhouDu, so much that he didn’t realize his mom, who had always
worried about him, had cancer.
11 Report
It’s a good thing everything started again, thought XiaYao, turning onto his
side and shutting his eyes.

On Monday morning, XiaYao wore two big panda eyes into the
classroom, seeing nightmares every time he closed his eyes, there was no
way he could sleep at all these last 2 nights.

Just as he sat down, his desk mate, Chubby, had also rushed in.

Chubby’s real name was Guo Dongdong, but because of how

rounded his body was, the class didn’t call him by his real name

He held 3 steamed stuffed buns, one bite, and one gone, and after
3 bites, nothing left. He craned his neck like a goose as he mercilessly
swallowed, followed with sucking the milk clean in his other hand. Then he
was alive as he greeted XiaYao.

XiaYao nodded at him, and proceeded to take out the English book from his
bag. He was a quiet character so Chubby didn’t bother.

The class representative went around collecting everyone’s

weekend work, when it was reached XiaYao, his face suddenly turned white
as a sheet.

Chubby handed his paper in and elbowed XiaYao, “Time to hand in the

“I didn’t write it.”

Chubby’s eyes shot up, the representative of the English class, a pale,
delicate and pretty girl quickly said, “Then quickly do it now, I’ll go and collect
the others first.”

XiaYao didn’t know which English paper; there was no way he could know
which weekend homework it was back in third year.

The class representative came to collect it three times, and each
12 Report
time, XiaYao said he didn’t do it. Chubby gave him the thumbs up.

XiaYao had a wry smile. When he raised his head, he saw a person at the
doorway from the corner of his eye.

ZhouDu with his bag astraddle was coming closer and closer.

ZhouDu’s school uniform brushed XiaYao by the elbows, XiaYao felt his
heart thumping, about to jump out from his throat.

XiaYao breathed out a sigh of relief when ZhouDu left.

He was a cautious rabbit, venturing gingerly in love with ZhouDu, but

afraid of how others would look at it with disgust, he could only silently hide
deep in a forest of his own.

The third class was Chinese; the Chinese teacher was also their
homeroom teacher. He was a tall and skinny middle-aged man, who wore thin
rimmed glasses, shiny bangs always pulled back, as well as a face like a
boss, so he was nicknamed “First Lady”.

The First Lady scanned the whole classroom and found everyone
present, revealing a satisfied smile.

“Very good, everybody seems to have that awareness of being in senior

year.” He pushed his glasses back, and with a renewed smile, “But there is
one person who has no consciousness of being in senior year.”

XiaYao knew he meant him; he lowered his head, not a word. “XiaYao.” The

First Lady obviously did not intend to let him off. XiaYao stood up.

“Why wasn’t homework done?”

13 Report
“You forgot?” The First Lady snapped at the table. “How come you didn’t
forget to eat? Even WangHao has written his homework, and you didn’t
even write a single paper!”

WangHao, in a half lying position secretly playing with his mobile phone,
suddenly heard his name from the First Lady, quietly whispered
“Che, didn’t even do anything, still attacked.”

XiaYao felt his face heat up, just obediently stood still with his head lowered.
The First Lady also didn’t want to waste too much time on him, after
reprimanding, he turned to the class and said, “The first mock exam for
senior year is coming up soon, do you guys plan to face it with such
attitude? Ah! Students, there is not much time, the countdown for the
entrance exams has already started. Every minute, every second right
now is precious, and yet, look at you all, early morning and talking once sitting
down, no conscious point, read some books, do some homework, and look
at the class next door, what their attitude is!”

After nagging, he looked at his watch and said to XiaYao, “Sit down first,
let’s start class.”

The Chinese class for the first quarter then went by in a whirl, with the First
Lady almost frothing in the mouth.

XiaYao knew that this was only the beginning, and when physics class
came around, he was right. The physics teacher was going to give a

When it came to the last big question, the physics teacher stopped.

“XiaYao, Come up and do this question.”

XiaYao stiffly walked up to the blackboard, some of the students held

looks of sympathy; others held looks of not caring at all.

“Teacher, I can’t.” replied XiaYao with his ear tips bright red.

The physics teacher gave a cold grunt, “I thought since homework wasn’t
done, it’s all in your stomach, guess I overestimated you.”

He turned his head and asked: “Who wants to come up and help him?”

All those that made eye contact with him quickly lowered their heads.

This problem was very difficult, and XiaYao wasn’t familiar with those
who can solve it, or it should be said that apart from Chubby, XiaYao didn’t
have much interaction with anyone else in the class.

XiaYao stood in front of the blackboard embarrassed, and just when

he thought no one was going to help him, a familiar voice rang out.

“Teacher, I’ll do it.” ZhouDu put one hand into his pocket and slowly
walked to the platform.

He glanced at the somewhat stupefied XiaYao, reaching out towards

his hands for the chalk.

As their fingertips brushed, XiaYao looked like he got electrified,

shrinking back. ZhouDu glanced at him, not saying anything, quickly solving
the two questions on the blackboard.

The physics teacher nodded with satisfaction and made the two boys
return to their seats.

After school, Chubby guiltily said, “I’m sorry; I also couldn’t solve that

XiaYao was surprised, because he didn’t think that because of this Chubby
would apologize. He quickly replied that he was fine. Chubby then insisted
that he must absolutely treat XiaYao to tea, since he broke the code of

The store Chubby had selected was next to the school. XiaYao never
goes there, one- because he had no money, and two- there was no one he
could go drink bubble tea with.

After entering the shop, XiaYao instantly recognized a familiar person.

It was a beautiful girl; she smiled towards XiaYao and Chubby who had just
entered, “Welcome, what will you drink?”

Chubby’s face immediately turned red, XiaYao after all has lived several
years longer than him, one glance and he could see what chubby was
thinking. He placed his bag on the chair beside the door, and said to Chubby,
“I’ll drink whatever, you can go order, and I’ll wait here.”

XiaYao looked at Chubby’s gleaming eyes, looking at the girl.

She’s the school campus flower, but it was not because of this that XiaYao
recognized her, he only knew her because she was ZhouDu’s rumoured

After XiaYao and ZhouDu had gotten together, he’d never asked ZhouDu
about the relationship with the school’s beauty because he didn’t dare to
ask, as ZhouDu and him dating wasn’t because ZhouDu liked him, but
because… …

Someone pushing the door interrupted XiaYao’s thoughts, he looked

up and it was like he got burned, hurriedly lowering his head.

Chubby came with the drinks together, standing in front of XiaYao with an
aura of summer.

“Thank you.” XiaYao said lowly, stretching his hands out for the tea.

ZhouDu stood at the door, frowning at the two people sitting there.

“You came.” The school’s beauty walked out from the corner and found a
table. Pulling open the chair, she said to ZhouDu, “Come sit.”

ZhouDu sat down opposite her.

XiaYao’s heart felt uncomfortable, he quietly drank his tea with his head
hung. Chubby’s face that was once peachy was now dark.

“What do you think the relationship between those two is?”

Chubby craned his neck up to XiaYao and whispered.

XiaYao shook his head.

After ZhouDu sat down, his eyes never left XiaYao, seeing those two all
close and secretive; his face took on an unsightly expression. He turned his
head to the side.

“What is wrong with you?” The school beauty smiled at ZhouDu,

“Who are you giving that face to?”

“Nothing.” ZhouDu sat straight up, asked: “Those two?”

“Who knows.” The school beauty shrugged and said, “Went with their
girlfriends probably.”

“Then I’m leaving.”

“Eh, wait wait wait wait.” The school’s beauty grabbed ZhouDu by the

flower to ask: “Do you think I’m handsome or that fatty just now is

“What?” the school’s beauty shocked for a moment, then laughed and said,
“ZhouDu, you’re actually jealous of a fatty? Ha ha ha.”

“Who’s jealous of him!” ZhouDu growled out, slightly angry. His

growl jolted her, her eyes wide.

“Since those two are not here, let’s talk about it next time.” He left the
school’s beauty standing there stupidly, walking out astride his bag.


After XiaYao returned home, he went directly to his room, turning it upside
down, looking everywhere for a long time and yet he couldn’t find that diary.

That’s the proof that he liked ZhouDu for two years, but now, even that’s

He sat down blankly on the bed, the scene of the school’s beauty laughing
at ZhouDu in the tea shop floating through his head. His whole body felt
painful, curling up in the bed.

XiaYao knows, this type of pain will follow him for a long time.

Later on, ZhouDu will get into a different university then him, will have his
own girlfriend, will get married, will have kids.

And XiaYao himself will just be a part of ZhouDu’s high school
memories. As a classmate he was not familiar with.

Before he just had a crush on ZhouDu, but now, since he had been
together with ZhouDu for several years now, cooking together,
sleeping together, and even fighting.

Experiencing all this and then giving up was much harder than not
experiencing it and giving up. But XiaYao does not regret his choice, he no
longer wants to become the despicable person he was in his previous life.

He’ll forget ZhouDu. He will.

Saying it was easy, but following through is hard. On the second day at
the school gate, he met ZhouDu once again. XiaYao could only lower his
head, pretend he didn’t see him and hurriedly walk past.

ZhouDu’s expression darkened.

“Who owes you money so early in the morning?” WangHao holding a cup of
soybean milk, walked to ZhouDu’s side, laughing. “What’s up with you?”

ZhouDu ignored him and walked straight away.

WangHao was already accustomed to ZhouDu’s nasty temper, not

bothering, just swung behind him into the classroom.

Not long after XiaYao had settled down, the representative of the English
class came to his side.

“No problem.” The English representative’s name was An Pengpeng,

time, family problems?”

XiaYao didn’t think that this girl would stand here and talk to him, he’s not
good at dealing with girls, suddenly feeling somewhat shy, “No, I forgot.”

“ time I’ll remind you; do you have a mobile number?”

XiaYao didn’t have a phone, at that time phones were too expensive,

out from the classroom.

ZhouDu’s face darkened like the bottom of a pan.

“Stop playing dumb, cunt.” The one with tattoos became irritable and pulled
XiaYao’s shirt collar up.

XiaYao was shorter than him by half a head, along with a weak build;

The table of the mother of XiaYao is at the intersection, people have a

may have been strange. He and his mother were not very powerful, no one did
anything. There were no enemies, why was such a good place as given to

XiaYao focused on researching English phrases.

Wanghao comes from the door in the classroom, “We are going to eat,

ZhouDu, although he did not want to say, eagle-boxing Wanghao saw

pancakojn for calico burning it on his desk.

“He, he”. Wanghao stretched out his hand, quickly retrieved the
pancakes, was a big bite from there. He goes on, “Yes, this cake is really

ZhouDu was strictly wanted to hit the head of WangHao with a bucket
tucked up a fist, such a high move to complete the wrath of his face at that

WangHao was shocked, his voice dropped: “Who is he right, but I’m
sorry that you will not be able to have a very fun breakfast served by
someone unprocessed, really sorry, it’s all a misunderstanding!”

Because he saw that he did not plan to talk to ZhouDu, he left

Zhangyang, I went to ZhouDu halfway. As the daughter of the law, he said,
touching his shoulder “Tomorrow, another one will probably be given to you,

After setting the practice hole during WangHao is because it was ĝojita

The duct helped with the glass and carefully hid in a bag of cakes.

When Wanghao entered the classroom, he saw the first XiaYao, he looked
at XiaYao’s instructions that he smiled. When he came from him, he soon
thanked you and went to his place.

Zhoude was better at looking at the physical teacher, half his

XiaYao first words to ZhouDu when he was in the bathroom, you think
that it comes from the back of the hospital, this does not mean that there is a
debate about the baked baked bread cake.

When he washed his hand, suddenly appeared Zhou Du. His hand was in
his pocket, but there was a little leaning on the side, his eyes were not only a
dare to show the perfect connection to see XiaYao. Look at it as if we were
asking: “They were there with a cake and my desk on the table”

“Yup.” XiaYao rightly nodded.

“Ak” ZhouDu releases his neck, he said:. “You have to be wrong, at that
time, I did not have a corner, I did not have money, – to withdraw it.
Knowing that Xia Yao’s family status is not so great, on the same day he
asked the child to help buy a cake.

Xia Yao saw what did not disturb him, welcomed him, thinking of his
answer: “One cake is not worth a hundred yuan.

Jiu Du does not rule out the objection without XiaYao, from that day pulls out
his hundred yuan from his pocket.

Xia Yao had money that did not understand what “Zhou Du” meant.
He can also bring buns-baked pancakes Jeonju and, of course, Wang Hua

“No need” Xia Yao picked up and said: “Indeed, my family sells this cake,

Before a hit, it was not the second one.

“Move and do not disturb!” ZhouDu placed himself between Wang Hao and
Xia Yao.

When Wang Hao heard that Xia Yao said that Zhou Du had already paid for
both breakfast, he went away. Undoubtedly in the heart of ZhouDu,
Wanghao was his best brother.

Wanghao entered the body of Zhou Du with the voice “Two Du ~”. Funno
gave him a cold shoulder and carried him, he saw Xia Yao, but Xia Yao did
not pay attention to them.

Zhou’s feeling disappeared and returned.

After school, going to the house, Wanghao on the road side said joyfully
how he stepped on the stone: “ZhouDu is, I do not think you are very good
against me.”

Zhou Deng immediately stared at him, Wanghao continued: “I paid for

breakfast, I was affected by the fact that I could die.

Zhou Du uttered this amount, frozen, cold and said: “I do not know what
you say”

“Because you do not pretend.” Wanghao is “Well, you, they are

ZhouDu soon brought WangHao’s head, stopped and angrily said:

“XiaYao also offers breakfast”

“Yup.” Wang Hua was confused. “Do you not give money to bring him to
him? On that day, I was eating your cake and I saw that I was afraid of being
angry. Since I was not awake early in the morning, I told Xia Yao that I would
help you buy it for you. You are especially happy on this day ”

Zhoude emotions at that time could describe only four words. The jealousy
storm (the sea pirate dog ǎ fàō). He saw Wangao’s teeth when the boy
seemed to be absurd not knowing anything about, Zhou Jun was able to

At that time, the family of Zhou family saw pancakojn baking kalikjn

superficial, what is wrong with you to bring this country to school?

Zhou Du responded briefly: “There is no rupture.”

Sports representatives have also come to an understanding of the

situation: “Can you add 3000 feet with your feet in this way?

Zhou’s two nodded, “the doctor only has severe injuries. I will only go a few
days, it will be fine. I have not participated in the training. This time is this.
He said he was not a fracture.

“Of course you can not practice here!” Sports officials are concerned
that “feudalists can not use such bad workers”.

“And you can use me!” Wang Hao went to the sportsman’s neck, saying “I
do not want to play.”

The agent left it and got a hand: “I can not go to the first lady for that.”

“When you were preparing to add something, a pretty figure

appeared in the classroom.

It was a class, Jiang ShiWen, next to the door queen and the school bell.
She stood outside the door of the class Zhou and immediately collected the
attention of all classes.

Everyone saw Zhou in a sense, they seemed to understand their faces.

Wang Hao drew him Zhou Du, “Jiang ShiWen really welcomes him to
come to our class to pursue you, go straight away.

“You are so annoying.” Zhou pressed Wang Hua’s face to the other side,
rushed and shouted at the door.

Wang Hao then moved to Chiayi. From there he had a perfect and clear
vision of Zhou and Jiangxi provinces.

“Oh, do you think it’s the success of such a good bumper stick?” He is
also very beautiful that the school bell wants to be his fianc2ee. “Wang Hao

XiaYao’s face is bright, his fingers firmly tightened the English book.
His head was loud and hungry. He could not hear what Vanghao had
said and he did not dare to look for them outside the classroom.

Wang Hao saw XiaYao did not get out of it, he looked crazy. With a scary
appearance, he saw XiaYao’s face was terrible.

“Is it okay?” Asked Wang Hao

Xia Yao made the worst face and shook his head more than he cried: “I
woke up so soon, probably because I have a good, so I’m low If you have
blood sugar, you must go back to your desk and start reading and then
You will read it in the classroom.

Wang Hao is still a bit interested, but Xia Yao believes that he does not need
to be interested in listening to the conversation between Zhou Du and
Jiang ShiWen.

“A few days without seeing you when I tell you incorrectly, are you already
lame?”: Jiang ShiVen can keep you back, Zhou looks at the pretty look

“When do you finish, why should I come here, leave a shadow, if the
class does not lack? How is your plan? How to start the school What
happens to you, do you know the tradition of our school?”

Zhou Du was Vice President of the School Student Union and Jiang
ShiWen was the President. Their school was curious because the
teacher did not interrupt with the student’s meeting. As vice
president, Zhou Deng had to transfer to Jiang ShiWen as a member of a new
student union before the school.

“I will not forget”. ZhouDu placed his central importance on his sick feet, but
he still carried a little bit.

Jiang Shiwen feared to fall, so she strained her hand. Sometimes it was the
scene XiaYao saw when he raised it. He watched it for a while and read
his book carefully.

XiaYao was clear about that. That will be what he often has to deal with.

Jiang ShiVen just sighed, said ZhouDu looked at his legs and turned his
head. “Now your legs are hurt and will you do it?”

Zhou extended his attention and moved away with him. He said well:
“My legs have not broken, it will be better.

Jiang ShiVen ZhouDu was able to keep his eyes at her distance,
Aizsmacīja, a bad smile, she could see what she said, to waste her voice,
“ZhouDu loves you.”

Suddenly, Zhou Du’s ear suddenly saw Džiang Shiva with great eyes,

“Oh, our pure Dudu finally accepted the first awakening concern of the

kind could not concentrate in their own research.”

Jiang ShiWen put her hair under the lashes and smiled at the
periphery and smiled. “I’ll come to school after school.

Zhou quickly asked: “Why are you looking for me?”

“To make it easier for you to organize the emotions you have, love one look
and see, you must do,” she leaves ZhouDu’s eyes to ShiWen and leaves the
Left place.

Did he love it? How glad you are!

Zhou King turned before his eyes. She takes her head and looks at the
receiver and focuses on reading an English dictionary.

His narrow shoulder approached slightly and revealed a white lotus neck.
The front of his hair looked a little longer than before, covering his soft lips
when the head leaned.

Until he lifted his head, Zhou stood at the door and looked out for a long
time. Similarly, the two eyes are directly connected at a distance of
several meters to the distance between them. Suddenly thunderstorm
seems to beat ZhouDu.

Infinite thundercloud, which broke his chest, crashes in my heart.

When the school was deported, Wanghao looked directly at her straight
to Zhou Du and said: “My mother taught me several times to send you home
after school, but only to Jiang ShiWen. I said she would be for you, so I
thought you should make it ”

The whole Zhou Du focus was prior to Xia Yao, he seemed to go away
at one go, Peng Peng and Xia Yao could stand together.

“You do not understand today?” Jou raised his head to ask Wang Hai for

“No, you still want to train in this state?” Wanghao was surprised. Jou

lucky you. I’m not interested in Jiang ShiWen.”

“Either well.” Wanghao helped ZhouDu’s feet: “It’s just a joke”

Shocho no longer increases her and they both start learning. XiaYao

and PengPeng also trained. When XiaYao worked yesterday,

PengPeng helped him and, after school days, saw both, ZhouDu knew that
XiaYao came to help her today.

He sat at a farmer looking for training, watched Xia Yao and Peng Peng
and took samples together. Peng Peng said XiaYao mineral water with a
sweet smile. XiaYao also unlocked the bottle, smiled and nodded.

Zou Doo eyebrows drank with frost and his bag was dying. He did not pay
attention to Jiangxi Yuan, who appeared next to him.

“Your jealousy must be the girl you like.” Jiang ShiWen sat down and got
a seat permit at Zhou De.

The sudden appearance of Jiang ShiWen was sitting and looking at

ZhouDu without worrying. Referring to her to her, he replied: “I do not know
what you say here.

Kang Shoshifumi (Kang Shen-vens) said: “When I do not say this, it came to

“No” Jou was a little worried.

“Your expression faces did not know that your eyes came from you when
you saw him. Did you give up?” Jiang ShiWen smiled: “Indeed, you, I did not
expect a thunder of ZhouDu, I can not tell other people,

but what you like is unconscious love.

Jou’s facial expression disappeared, Jiang Shiwen said that it was called.
Now he loved Xia Yao, but he did not know it to say that, because he
clearly said that he was no longer satisfied with him.

“Oh, I should stick a sign?” Jiang ShiWen was impressed. Failed:

“Please tell me something if you do not understand.

At a distance, Peng Peng turned his head and saw at the same time
that Joe King and Gangson were sitting with each other. She could not
say that they looked good.

XiaYao got into his eyes. He paused and bowed his head.

“Where are we going?” There were several bottles of water in his hands.

PengPeng listened and laughed: “Well, I will not do it on the third wheel.”
She missed Xia Yao.

Fielders saw two people, Sarens.

“Well, that does not look like your style.” Jiang ShiWen also
destroyed your nerves here, only one sitting “, his glances against Peng
Peng and Xia Yao back Then why here, better than you, even if you are
refused or thought. I will not tell her when I’m going, I’m sorry, but the
other half does not know it.

“Useless” Jou Du said: “He already said that I do not like him. T / n:

“Huh?” Jiang ShiWen was surprised and glad that the day you came
later was rejected.

Zhou rubbed his brow. He asked Jiang ShiWen on his side and,
126 Report
finally, wondered if they were on his stomach pit, who ever tells you that you
like: “Ask what you mean Then say that they do not like the next whether they
can change so much fast? What does it mean? ”

After Jiang ShiWen heard this, she saw Zhou for a while and said, “You
are just one glance? Another angry man comes to fruition, and I say that you
are saying something provocative I can do it.”

“Are you angry?” Zhuhai confused and looked at Jiangxi province: “But I
did not do anything, why is he angry?

Jiang ShiWen’s eyes are angry, because you did not do anything, “let’s
get wide and I ask you: What? After school, are you going to the house
together after a seminar, waiting for them, sitting and not giving a small gift,
is also a special day?

Shoobi was seriously wearing his head.

Jiang ShiWen, if you like something, you do not want to do it at the same
time, so the other is angry, so keep going? She says something that does not
like you. Of course, I will follow up with you, of course, there is no problem.

Zhou lifting his head thinks. For people returning home with Xia Yao,
nothing was done every day because he injured his legs. Do you talk to her
after class? However, after class, he seemed to do homework
because he always read, but does not seem to be confused. In the
case of small gifts, the Jou University was confused because he did not
know what to give.

He expressed his idea of Jiang ShiWen.

Before Jiang ShiWen’s answers, think a bit: “I do not need my

qualification as good as you or not? I remember that I’m the first in your
class, please stay.”

Funo nodded.

“That’s fine, you can pretend to help her with homework when the class is
over so you do not delay his learning.” Jiang ShiWen stops “I can not help,

Funtou was confused.

Jiang ShiWen says, “Since you do not even know if they like it, of course,
if you know that they are not silent, they can be angry, but ask for it if you
know. He is true,” he sighed and said:

“Is it really causing the words really?” ZhouDu still believed because
he had a very awkward look what XiaYao could do whenever he approached
XiaYao if He did not want it.

“Please do what I said for the first time.” “If love is simple and
emotional, they no longer like you after a day, but love is love in heaven,

That night, when I got home, he took out XiaYao’s diary and read it. As he
did, Jiang ShiWen’s words did not seem to feel. Xia Yao did very clearly in
his diary that he loved Zhou Den. And this “love” lasted for 2 years.
XiaYao could not stop love ZhouDu.

His tip is archery with pride. To say that Jiang ShiWen said it was a good
thing, Xia Yao was just a rare thing for her.

When these thoughts still shook, Zhou fell asleep and filled with hope.

The next day, Wanghao ZhouDu appears outside the door in the
morning, and his consciousness will be more serious because of pain. Zhou
family assistant invited him to his house.

“Where are Zhou Du? Please do not tell me he is still asleep.” Wang
Hao, he went home when he saw the Zhou Du, not in the dining room,
living or not in the dining room.

Family assistant responded quickly: “Zhou Du still stands, why do not you
check him with you?

Zhou’s family had assistants and administrators, but ZhouDu’s

father could not rely on “ZhouDu” as a “new owner” or something else. As
the aid was older than the mother of Zhao, I said it by name of amnesty as

Wang Hao ran to Zhou Du’s room. There the door was firmly closed.
He did not think much before hitting the door.

“Wow, Zhou! The king of your uncle came to your school! Suddenly the

door opened from the interior and appeared Zhou

Duo. Wanghao instinctively leaned, trying to avoid an attack –
experience, he said he had been gathering from the previous year, he
certainly attacks Wang Hao if Zhou Du was fermented.

However Zhou Dud quietly saw Wang Hao.

I turned to the other side of the body and put Wang Hao into my room.

Wang Hao wondered at ZhouDu.

“Does ZhouDu still sleep half of you? Are you sure you’re leaving me in
your room? Do you know who I am?” He did not trust my ear, I asked.

When I was young, Wang Hao played with Zhou Du in the last room.
Not only dropped Zhou Doo’s bed, he had destroyed all the valuable
children’s books and toys in Zhoude. He did not really remember what
had happened with the memory of ZhouDu, just what he said in tears, but
she was still, since then Wang Hao again steps from Zhou Two room.

Zhou Dai saw that Wang Hua was still stupidly caught before he was
thrown into his room.

In entering, he pulled the same chair sitting to the right before Wang

“Ha?” Wang Hao was completely lost. How does XiaYao enter this?

This was when Wanghao finally grasped the situation. Seeing good things
Zhou asked about her, his attitude was a change of 180 degrees.

About “About …” Wang Hao left a satin smile, pointing up and fingers,

excitement. “I knew you’re the best Dudu!

Wang Hao could not help, but DzouD’s face was serious. But the

model of the robot he had already dreamed was so worthy.

I went to school together. There were not many people in hot air. And
XiaYao was constantly sitting on her desk and wrote something.

After Zhou Du helped Zhou Du, Wang Hao left the classroom and nobody
knew where to go.

Some people in my class all thought of my business. ZhuDu saw a little

Xia Yao flared, his breath slowly considered. He tried to solve the
problem of physics, but he was proud to take his thinking skills on the

XiaYao breathed his breath. He did not know what Zhou Den wanted

Zhou Du saw Xia Yao at first sight. When he saw that XiaYao did not
intend to ask him to leave, he relaxed and dropped more weight to the place
where their seat was filled.

Zhou saw Xia Yao, who was always silent without worry. When I saw
XiaYao calmly he stirred his lead and was a little distant between Xia Yao and

XiaYao was still overwhelmed. When he thought that the

circumference was approaching, he urgently said “Thank you!”

Funtou could not help, but his body bent its corners. Jean-Shivan’s
approach seems to be very useful. He straightened, there was a hidden
luck, “Please do not thank me, if I need help, I can come to me anytime.”

XiaYao saw Zhou Du. He wanted to say something, but he stopped. Finally,
he revalidated the thesis of physics, asked another question and said
silently: “I can not solve it either”.

Zhou Du approached Xia Yao. He missed the problem before

reading it in the paper project when he pulled himself on the pen.

XiaYao looks at the answer and despises, then bothers her a bit, “Can
you explain it to me? I could not really understand the answer.

Zhou Du was picked up at this point. But when he took some crude
expression on his face, he began to explain the question Xia Yao.

Xia Yao believed that Zhou Du was a stranger recently.

For example, it is now empty, but the Funtou stayed at the door, as if waiting
for something. XiaYao saw the seat of Wang Hao, but as Wang Hao had
left the court, he could not wait for Wang Hao.

From now on it was not in the direction of logistics, XiaYao

wrapped around and was about to go. When he turned to Zhou Deng, the last
man, who had previously been drawn to the wall, stood straight and
followed him calmly.

XiaYao paid attention to this fact, given that this was a mere
coincidence. But when he went outside the school gate and moved to the
house, the shadow behind him followed him.

Xia Yao stopped in her song, returned, looked at the stupid Zhou Du and
returned. The man behind his head said he was looking at the landscape.
XiaYao has no option to stay walking, ZhouDu has continued walking

Only when he reached the road to the school, Takashi was

convinced that Zhou followed him.

“Something bad?” XiaYao asked me to be confused.

Zhou raised a heavy fist before his mouth, calmly embracing and said: “I’ll
leave you home.”

“What?” It mixes Xia Yao more. “Do you want to come to my house?
Is there anything?

“So … … Akatsuki meant something, but Zhou stopped him.


“Zhou Du”, Xia Yao thought we had to see what happened. Why does

“What do you want to do?”

Zhou Du does not know what happened to the heart of Xia Yao. Did Jiang
Shi say that if you go to the person you enjoyed at home, would you be happy?
The fact that I told him why XiaYao not only regretted, but also why he wanted
him to go home. “Someone told him to do this” Who had to answer? He
never knows about it with XiaYao.

“You alone can go so, I can not, I want to walk here,” because its
expression became dark, Zhou Dud said. XiaYao thought he was angry,
so he walked without saying something and held his head low.

Zhou Du fled from relaxation, seeing that XiaYao no longer doubts him. He
returned with Xia Yao just taken to the gate where his house was.

Happiness went to the Jeonju eyebrows.

But what Xia Yao later said is that everyone in Zhou likes ash.

“But you do not need to choose me at home, we live on the contrary to

Zuto’s face looked dark. Before he left XiaYao without a doubt he rejoiced
Jiang ShiWen’s head and said, “Right.” So he left without banning
XiaYao’s other eyes.

XiaYao made a great mind. He waited until Zhou Du disappeared from

the glance before walking a small street.

After leaving, Zhou dead does not resign home. Instead he went to a tea
dairy where Jiang Shiwen’s sister worked.

While Wang Hao was still coaching, Zhou Du’s time was good to go home
with her. Of course, the most important thing, I wanted to ask exactly why she
told her, but a summer shop seemed not particularly satisfied.

sister was not there, so ZhouDu was next to Jiang ShiWen and told her

character. Because you’re in, are you at home?”

Funai began: “Are you not the one who told me to let him go home?

“Haiz,” Jiang ShiWen receives breath. “Because you said before, she
goes home, why do not you think I’m thinking about two here. First,
because she’s your feet hurt, it can become uncomfortable. Due, I will not
do anything as you have expressed it without name. , you stressed here

I can also ask them, I do not know what to say to his crusher.”

The good thing is that walking around the house is not necessary, there
are few skills to kiss. He decided to plan his way to Xia Yao’s house today.
But things will not happen as he wanted – today XiaYao was back in logistics,
and Jou Du remained the only choice to follow XiaYao in this area.

Wanghao did not receive training tonight in the afternoon. Originally,

he sent ZhouDu at home as an excuse to avoid ZhangYang, but
eventually he was still wowed by the ZhangYang class.

After Wang Hao stayed, Zhou Du saw busy Xia Yao and sat in the

Since PengPeng was not XiaYao today, ZhouDu’s mood has been good
all the time. When he knew that he had to do something, he moved to the
back of XiaYao with beautiful stuff.

Since XiaYao was busy typing time for the short-term players, he did not
realize that Zhou Du was standing behind him. When he turned to the
other side of the field, he was running directly on the

Zhou Du window.

Joe Du could not balance. XiaYao fought her and both fell straight to the

Regardless of whether XiaYao was yellow or not, it reached a height

of 180 cm. Joe did not influence this effect and left doubt.

T / N: 180 cm and 5’9.

XiaYao’s face stopped for a while. Last time he did not know the
problem of how he would cause Zhou Du this time to beat him, caused
him Zhou Du damage his legs mistake about him. He looked closely from the
floor, looked at the dynasty of Zhou, who lay on the floor, and climbed
heavily from the floor.

Zhou Du knew that XiaYao was surprised that the search for
shocking deer was afraid of him and because of his innocence he was bad. He
was obliged to ignore the pain and tried to admit himself. However, he did
not expect XiaYao to push him to the floor. “No, do not move now, I’ll
become a doctor.

Joe Du could have had an appointment with a doctor when she saw her. He
caught XiaYao and said, “Do not go”.

XiaYao looked at Zhou Du’s pale faces and said with anxiety: “It seems
to be a lot of hurt.

In fact, much worse, in order to maintain a good impression before XiaYao,

he may pretend he did not only affect him in the autumn, saying, “As you
are now, there is a chance that I’m hurting your weight and I’ll be able to
do with one hand.” ”

The nature of Xia Yao did not believe in what he said, but he only nodded,
knowing that he could not say this in front of Zhou Du.

Then only Zhou Du pride was a happy man. He stepped up with

Zhou beat the tongue. He knocked on the boy and said, “What
happened to you?

sadness. Since he did not want to hear the word vundajn more than Zhou Du,
he shrunk and said, “Sorry, I forgot to record my time now, why do not you

improved in words.” Before his words are resolved, the corridor is a

Jou Du fled the corridor with a collar to himself with anger.

Some time ago the corridor tried to swallow water, but an endless mineral
water ran everywhere. His face became dark, his Joe Dougs grew up with
Pisa’s sound. “Are you crazy?”

The atmosphere is nervous.

So XiaYao is ZhouDu angry and still “have something to do, or his wife?”,
ZhouDu quit ZhouDu immediately saying: “Go away from him.

“I will not forget,” Funto said coldly.

The corridor threw a bottle of mineral water on the floor with a

Two men stood and pulled their heads, not to allow someone to leave
an opponent.

XiaYao stood at the edge and panicked. Fortunately, the sports

representative put forward his direction. He immediately perceived
something in the wrong atmosphere.

“What’s going on here?”

“They suddenly began to fight,” explained Xia Yao soon.

The sports representative walks between the two: “What are you doing?
We are classmates, please do not worry about other activities.

The corridor fell from mineral water. He told the sportsman in his rage:
“You have to ask the hell that you are around.

Since then, ZhouDu has been released. He learned that it was his fault first
to encourage the corridor, he did not worry. Without asking what other people
said, he shook the bag on his shoulder and started returning to the school

The coarse wound was still healed, so I had to be honest. When XiaYao

(T/N: I swear, the title just spoiled the whole chapter for you guys.)

Because ZhouDu exerted too much force on his pull, XiaYao almost let his
whole weight fall on ZhouDu. The field was full of students who had stayed
back for training. No matter how dense ZhouDu was, he could at the very
least tell this was not the best place to be kissing XiaYao.

He grabbed onto XiaYao’s arm and walked straight towards and out of
the school gate. XiaYao, who was dragged against his will, staggered all
the way there. He asked hurriedly, “ZhouDu, what are you trying to do?”

“Walking you home,” ZhouDu said without looking back.

XiaYao wanted to say that there was no need to do that, but he decided
against it, fearing that ZhouDu would get angry again, so he let ZhouDu pull
him along. ZhouDu only released his grip when they exited the school main

ZhouDu kept what Jiang ShiWen had taught him in mind, specially making
sure he walked on XiaYao’s right. XiaYao stared at the tips of his toes, unsure
of what to do.

“What did you do last night?” ZhouDu asked out of the blue.

XiaYao tightened his voice before answering, “Nothing much, I just

completed a set of practice papers, memorised a little English
vocabulary and slept.”
148 Report
By that time, they had already reached the empty streets near XiaYao’s
house. ZhouDu followed the sequence Jiang ShiWen had taught him, and
continued to question, “Did you miss me?”

“Wh-what?” XiaYao began to doubt his own ears.

ZhouDu thought XiaYao didn’t hear what he said, so he stopped in his

tracks and turned to look at the other male before repeating himself,
“Did you miss me?”

XiaYao blinked a few times, his lips were shaking as he stared at

ZhouDu unbelievably, “Do you know what you’re saying?”

Of course ZhouDu knew what he was saying. He frowned, as XiaYao

didn’t give a reply to his question.

XiaYao’s face grew pale – was ZhouDu toying with him?

ZhouDu took a look at XiaYao’s lips and thought, ‘I want to kiss him’.
So, he did.

He pushed XiaYao lightly, onto the gray wall behind them. This was what
ZhouDu learnt from the movies he used to watch in the past. He could
remember how the male protagonist always pushed his partner onto the
corner of the wall, and leaned forward to kiss her.

ZhouDu didn’t give XiaYao any time to respond, and forced his own lips
harshly on XiaYao’s.

XiaYao widened his eyes, and the beating of his heart stopped.

It was only after a few seconds had passed, no, it might also have been a
few minutes, before XiaYao could finally feel his blood circulate
throughout his body, but his body remained shaky.

ZhouDu felt as though his heart was a drum, and the repeating ‘dongs’
with each beat almost drove him crazy. He kept his lips tightly on
XiaYao’s, but didn’t know what to do next. Also, why wasn’t
149 Report
XiaYao closing his eyes? Didn’t the female protagonist always keep her eyes
closed and hug the neck of the male protagonist?

With XiaYao staring at him dumbfoundedly, ZhouDu finally felt a sense

of shame.

And so, the two of them remained standing there with the tips of their
noses touching, their lips stuck closely together, and their eyes staring into
each other for quite some time, before XiaYao finally came to his senses
and struggled hard, pushing himself away from ZhouDu’s grasp.

“ZhouDu, are you crazy?” He spat this sentence at him before running
away, leaving ZhouDu hanging alone in the empty street.

The expression on ZhouDu’s face seemed confused and also lost. What
was he supposed to do to make XiaYao start liking him again? Even though
he… Even though he followed exactly what Jiang ShiWen had told
him to do, not daring to mess up even a single sequence.

But XiaYao ran away. XiaYao thought he was crazy.

‘I’m probably crazy,’ ZhouDu thought. Only a crazy person would listen to
what Jiang ShiWen says and follow suit without question. They had no
effect at all.

XiaYao could not stop himself from shaking as he ran all the way home.
He leaned against the door of his room and slid down slowly, hugging

XiaYao could almost feel ZhouDu’s presence still lingering on his lips. He
placed a finger over them consciously, until he finally broke, burying his head
into his knees, and started crying.

The next day was a weekend. ZhouDu had greenish-black circles under
his eyes as he walked down emotionlessly.

“Did you pull an all-nighter again last night?” ZhouDu’s father seemed
displeased as he glanced at him.

His mother, however, gave her husband a slap on his hand and said,
“What’s wrong with a youngster staying up? Not everyone is like you.”

ZhouDu walked towards the entrance of the house, changed his shoes,
and opened the door for his parents.

Mother Zhou’s eyebrows adjusted slightly into an unnoticeable frown.

She sensed that her son hadn’t pulled an all-nighter, but instead was in
a bad mood.

She was under postnatal care* recently, and with the incident that
happened to her daughter, her thoughts were all concentrated on her newborn;
in a way, she had neglected her son.

(T/N: The chinese term used here was ‘ 坐月子(zuo yue zi)’, which
is a Chinese term that means a woman is confined to bed or at
home for a month to recover from the birth and take care of the baby.
‘Postnatal care’ is the closest term I could think of.)

“ZhouDu, come here,” she waved, and ZhouDu sat obediently beside
her. “Let your father drive later, you sit in the backseat with me.”

ZhouDu’s father’s intention was to leave the driving for their hired driver
while he accompanied her, but when the wife made her statement, he
dared not to disobey, and walked towards the garage without another word.

The housekeeper stood aside with ZhouZhou in her arms. Mother Zhou
locked her arm with her son’s, tilted her face slightly and asked cheerfully,
“So, any secrets to reveal to your mother?”

ZhouDu shook his head.
151 Report
“Geez, looks like my son’s really grown up; you used to tell me
everything when you were younger.”

ZhouDu tilted his head unnaturally.

“Let me guess, does my son finally have someone he likes?” ZhouDu

turned and stared at his mother with an unbelieving look. ZhouDu’s mother

laughed. Of course, her son was still young.

“What’s wrong with that? Let me tell you a secret, I had a boyfriend in as
early as my middle school days.”

ZhouDu fought back awkwardly, “I don’t have anyone I like!” “Ooh~” His

mother stared at him with a thoughtful look, and

smiled before saying, “It’s okay if you don’t tell me now. If you ever
feel like saying it someday, I can help you solve any problem!” She blinked
playfully at ZhouDu; this was also the time ZhouDu’s father drove the car
out of the garage.

They were heading towards the hospital for further consultation with the
doctor regarding ZhouZhou’s situation. (T/N: In case you forgot(like me),
ZhouZhou is ZhouDu’s baby sister. Yes, the one who stole XiaYao’s bone

ZhouDu hadn’t thought he’d meet Jiang ShiWen in the hospital. In the
instant Jiang ShiWen came into his sight, his expression darkened,

Mother Zhou’s gaze wandered around ZhouDu and the little beauty before
him, and she let out an experienced laugh, “You go play for a while with your

“What’s with that face? I’m still waiting for you to treat me to a meal.”
Jiang ShiWen broke the silence.

ZhouDu stared hard at Jiang ShiWen for a while before he asked,

“Are you toying with me?”

Jiang ShiWen looked at ZhouDu strangely, “I toyed with your-?”

ZhouDu tried to keep it back, but he couldn’t do it in the end, so he told Jiang
ShiWen about everything that happened the day before.

Jiang ShiWen looked confused as well, upon listening to ZhouDu’s story.

“That shouldn’t be the case…” she mumbled to herself.

In the end, she looked as if she just remembered something, and turned
to ZhouDu, “I’d never toy with you, but let me confirm something – what’s
the relationship between you guys right now, are you dating?”

Dating? ZhouDu’s expression darkened. XiaYao already told

ZhouDu he didn’t like him, how could they be dating?

Jiang ShiWen held a worried expression on her face when she heard
that ZhouDu wasn’t, “You two aren’t a pair yet? Oh god, what have I taught
you to do? To become a pervert?”

ZhouDu looked even more unhappy when he heard her words. A

pervert? There was no way he could be a pervert towards XiaYao.

“Wait, I need to ask you something. ZhouDu, how did you know that she
likes you, did she tell you, or?”

ZhouDu shot a glance at Jiang ShiWen, “I knew it by myself.” “That’s why

I’m asking you how you figured it out. She wrote you a
love letter?”

ZhouDu shook his head.
153 Report
Jiang ShiWen started panicking as well, “I can’t help you if you don’t
tell me the truth.”

ZhouDu thought for a moment before answering, “I read his diary.” “Diary?”

“He said he loves me in the diary.”

“Which means you secretly read her diary, thought she liked you, and
started doing perverted things to her like what I told you to?”

ZhouDu was triggered again. He didn’t read the diary in secret, it was
placed under his desk by XiaYao himself. Since the diary was already
placed under his table, doesn’t it mean he had the right to read it?

But ZhouDu didn’t want to argue too much with Jiang ShiWen, so he
simply nodded his head.

Jiang ShiWen was at a loss of words for quite some time. Finally, she
said, “Let me ask you another question. Do you like her?”

ZhouDu felt that Jiang ShiWen was questioning the obvious, and she
seemed to think so as well. Knowing that ZhouDu was too lazy to give her the
answer, she continued speaking, “Dear ZhouDu, the flow of normal
relationships is usually confession before trying out perverted things.
If you try something now, it’s only normal that you’d scare her away.”

ZhouDu was angered, “I only did what you told me to do!” (T/N: I have to
disagree with you here, ZhouDu, this is not how you treat a girl.)

‘So it’s my fault then?’ Jiang ShiWen thought to herself. However, she still
lived up to her policies that if she was to offer advice, she’d help out till the
very end, and said to ZhouDu, “Let’s make it this way, you go confess first.
If you succeed in doing so, I’ll tell you what
154 Report
to do next.”



ZhouDu remained silent. Jiang ShiWen rolled her eyes and mocked,
“Don’t tell me you don’t know how to.”

“I got it,” ZhouDu stood up, “I finally got what you meant.”

It was only after Jiang ShiWen’s reminder that ZhouDu had realised the
thing he missed out – he never told XiaYao about his feelings. XiaYao had
no clue that ZhouDu liked him.

He actually forgot something as important as this.

ZhouDu wanted to sprint to where XiaYao was immediately to tell him

about his feelings, but his conscience held him back. ZhouDu thanked
Jiang ShiWen and the two of them walked back to the hospital

The injury on ZhouDu was recovering well too. The doctor did a simple
check-up and said, “It should be fine in another two days.”

ZhouDu reached the classroom early on the following Monday. To his

surprise, XiaYao, who’d usually reach school early, had yet to turn up.

He reached for the phone in his pocket and checked the time; there
was still 50 minutes before class started. ZhouDu stood up from his own
seat and shifted into Fatty’s, such that XiaYao would be able to spot him
immediately when he entered the class.

ZhouDu has already made up his mind – after school today, he was going to
confess his feelings to XiaYao. Of course, he would also apologise for his
actions the other day, and wait patiently for XiaYao to accept his confession
before kissing him.

The unfortunate thing was, even when Fatty arrived to school, XiaYao
did not appear.

XiaYao only appeared exactly when the bell rang, so ZhouDu had no
choice but to return to his seat.

When XiaYao entered the class, he took his literature book out and started
making notes quietly.

ZhouDu kept his gaze solidly on XiaYao’s back. The First Lady was
observing everyone’s morning study from outside the classroom, and the first
thing she saw was ZhouDu, who had his hands free.

“Ahem!” The First Lady cleared her throat while she continued to stare in
ZhouDu’s direction. His tablemate reacted in time and gave ZhouDu a knock
with his elbow. Only then did ZhouDu finally return
156 Report
to his senses.

“The monthly tests are on the day after tomorrow, can you guys put some
heart into it? Don’t think that you can let your guard down just because you
came in first a few times. If the top place is taken by the other class this
time, I’ll see how you come up with an explanation for that.”

Everyone knew who The First Lady was talking about, and all eyes turned
to ZhouDu. ZhouDu, on the other hand, acted as if it were none of his
business and started flipping through his English textbook casually.

To ZhouDu, there was nothing was more insignificant than tests and
examinations. In elementary school, he would still brag about how he
scored full marks for the paper; now, even topping the school couldn’t sway
him in the slightest.

What ZhouDu’s mother always told him was, “Studying is

something you do for yourself. If you like it, you’ll eventually put in the effort,
but if you don’t like it, then there’s no use in forcing you.”

ZhouDu couldn’t put a word on if he liked studying or not, he only knew that
studying was part of his life – it was something as common as eating or
wearing clothes. To him, getting the topping in a test was the same as
scoring the lowest mark in class.

However, ever since XiaYao told him about how he admired his
intelligence and excellent results, ZhouDu, for the first time in his life, felt
that coming in first was quite useful. After all, he could grab XiaYao’s
attention with them, right?

With these thoughts, ZhouDu adjusted his posture.

It was the Monday where their class was in charge of flag raising, and
ZhouDu was dragged by the class representative to be a flag carrier.
157 Report
To be truthful, ZhouDu was extremely unwilling to take on the job, because
if he did, he wouldn’t be able to catch XiaYao before they were released
from the venue.

The sports representative showered him mercilessly with praises, also

bringing up random things like class pride or stuff of the sort. ZhouDu
couldn’t stand his endless ramblings, so he had no choice but to take on
his request.

When lessons for the day finally ended, ZhouDu stood outside the class
and waited patiently to walk XiaYao home. XiaYao however, didn’t even
spare ZhouDu a look before walking straight pass him.

ZhouDu wanted to call out to him, but XiaYao picked up his pace and
caught up to An PengPeng, who was on logistics duty today. XiaYao
walked up to her and said, “I’ll stay back with you today.”

An PengPeng blushed immediately, and she stood there, staring at XiaYao

with sparkling eyes.

And so, the two walked off together, leaving ZhouDu alone behind. He told
himself to keep his anger down while tagging quietly behind the two.

“I see that you have no troubles with walking now, is your leg
recovered?” The sports representative said jokingly when he saw

ZhouDu replied with a half-hearted “yeah”.

The sports representative continued to say, “Wanna race?”

ZhouD finally turned to look at the person before him.

“Why not,” ZhouDu answered as he started stretching his arms and

ankles. XiaYao wasn’t leaving anytime soon anyway, there was no harm in
racing a few times with the sports representative. After all, he was a
participant in the school athletics festival. He had never
158 Report
gotten top three in the past long-run events, and this time, due to the injury
on his leg, he hadn’t been training for quite a few days.

“Come come come,” the sports representative was unusually excited

as he dragged ZhouDu onto the track. When both of them got into their
positions, the sports representative shouted ‘start’, and both males dashed

Although XiaYao was helping out beside An PengPeng, all of his

attention was caught by ZhouDu. As a result, when he attempted to pass the
bottle of mineral water in his hands to An PengPeng, the bottle slipped
right through his hands and fell onto the ground.

“What’s with you?” An PengPeng bent down to pick the fallen bottle
up. “You’re spacing out.”

XiaYao threw her an apologetic smile and shook his head to deny what
she just said.

Before everyone else, XiaYao felt that he was much older than them,
since after all, he had lived so many more years than them. Once he saw
ZhouDu, however, XiaYao could feel himself turning back into the him back
then, who was hopelessly in love. He wanted to get closer to ZhouDu, but
at the same time, he was afraid of rejection.

The sport players who had just finished their trainings finished all the
mineral water they brought over. An PengPeng took a look and said,
“Should we get more from the equipment room?”

XiaYao nodded, there was no reason to involve girls in physical jobs

such as carrying bottled water. A classmate, who was resting aside, stood
up and said, “I’ll go.”

An PengPeng rejected his offer bashfully, “It’s okay, you should rest
since you just finished your run. We won’t be carrying a whole box here so
we’ll be fine.”
159 Report
That person was probably really tired as well, so he gave up insisting
shortly after hearing what An PengPeng said.

Upon completing two rounds around the track, ZhouDu returned to where
XiaYao was the last time he saw him, but XiaYao was nowhere to be found.
Horrified at the thought that XiaYao might have gone home early, ZhouDu
ran hurriedly towards the audience seats where the sports players were

“Where’s XiaYao?” he asked, out of breath.

That guy turned his own mineral bottle shut and pointed towards the
equipment room, “He went off with An PengPeng to collect water.”

ZhouDu glanced in the direction of the equipment room before running

straight towards it. When he ran past the track, he brushed past the sports
representative, who was making his way back to the track.

“Eh, what’s with you, not running anymore?” The sports

representative turned back to ask as he continued walking.

ZhouDu signaled a ‘no’ to the latter and sprinted his way to the
equipment room without looking back.

When he reached the bottom of the flight of stairs leading of the

equipment room, ZhouDu paused to regulate his breath. The
equipment room was on the second floor, and this part of the school was
usually empty. ZhouDu thought that if he could send An PengPeng
away later, he would confess to XiaYao here.

As to what to say for the confession, ZhouDu had practiced it

countless times over the spent of the weekend, so he was confident that
there would be no problems.

ZhouDu inhaled deeply and started making his way up the stairs. With the
sound of his own footsteps echoing in the empty staircase
160 Report
and the nearing equipment room, ZhouDu started feeling nervous.

He clenched his fist and stood outside the door of the equipment room,
ready to enter.

From within the half-opened door came the voice of a shy girl saying,
“I-I like XiaYao.”

ZhouDu thought his head exploded, and without much thought, he kicked
the door to the equipment room wide open.

The door hit the wall and bounced back with a loud ‘bang’. The couple in
the room turned their attention to the door simultaneously in fright.

ZhouDu was the last person An PengPeng had expected to see. When
he appeared, she could almost bleed from the blush on her face, and slid a
piece of pink paper folded into the shape of a heart into XiaYao’s palms
before running straight out of the room.

ZhouDu squeezed his fist tightly shut as he stood by the door, his eyes
boring into XiaYao without uttering a single word.

XiaYao suddenly felt as if he was caught red-handed for cheating, and the
love letter An PengPeng placed into his hands felt like a piece of hot
sweet potato – he didn’t know what to do with it.

ZhouDu started reducing the distance between them by talking small

steps into the room. He walked slowly, but every step seemed to trample
XiaYao’s heart.

XiaYao’s instincts told him the situation was dire. He clenched the love

“I-I’ll be going first.” He didn’t have the guts to look at ZhouDu in the eye,
so he kept his head low and tried to flee from the room.

Unfortunately, ZhouDu didn’t give him the chance to escape. With
161 Report
an easy pull with his hands, ZhouDu forced XiaYao towards himself.

“Take it out.”

Terrified, XiaYao glanced up at ZhouDu. He didn’t know what he was

supposed to ‘take out’.

ZhouDu looked at An PengPeng’s love letter which XiaYao was

desperately clinging on to, and he felt as if the fumes would make him lose
his reasoning soon.

He pulled XiaYao’s wrist towards him, further closing up the space between
himself and the other male. He then peeled XiaYao’s fingers off and retrieved
the letter from his hands.

“So all the talk about not liking me anymore, it was because of her?”
ZhouDu placed the letter before XiaYao.

“No…” XiaYao opened his mouth, but he couldn’t seem to find the right
words to say.

“Then, why do you not like me?” ZhouDu held his face close to XiaYao,
close enough for XiaYao to feel ZhouDu’s breath on him whenever he
spoke. “Now I know, the reason behind it was because you had a change of

XiaYao’s eyes started turning red. He stared at ZhouDu’s face which

was dangerously close, and spoke in a cracked voice, “ZhouDu,
please. Please give me a break from this.”

ZhouDu gritted his teeth, “I won’t, you’re the one who said you loved
me first.”

XiaYao’s eyes started to water. ZhouDu hadn’t expected XiaYao to cry from
this, so he was at a temporary loss of what to do.

“Isn’t it your fault?” ZhouDu let go of XiaYao’s wrist and mumbled to

162 Report
“It is my fault,” XiaYao’s face was pale as he spoke with trembling lips, “I
shouldn’t have met you, shouldn’t have loved you, shouldn’t have returned
to this place. Why was I not the one who died then, ZhouDu, why?”

ZhouDu couldn’t understand what he was saying, but when he heard

that XiaYao wanted to die, his heart shrank, and his chest started hurting
so much it was hard to breathe.

“So you want to die? Do you hate me that much?” ZhouDu couldn’t hold
himself back from roaring, “If you didn’t like me, why did you write that
kind of diary, why did you say those words in the hospital?!”

XiaYao’s eyes widened. ZhouDu knew, ZhouDu knew everything.

“I…” ZhouDu looked nervously at XiaYao before he opened his mouth

again, this time his tone was pleading.

“Can you stop liking An PengPeng?”

XiaYao didn’t say anything. He simply stood there and shook his head

ZhouDu’s heart hurt. He couldn’t stand it any longer, and spread his arms
out to pull XiaYao into an embrace. He buried XiaYao’s head in his chest, and
said, “Can you stop liking An PengPeng? I like you, XiaYao, can you start
liking me again?”

Upon hearing those words, XiaYao, who was buried in ZhouDu’s arms,
finally started crying.

XiaYao’s tears were like highly concentrated sulfuric acid that dripped
through ZhouDu’s neck, and that burning sensation sent shivers down
ZhouDu spine. He didn’t dare to release his grip on XiaYao, nor did he
have the guts to look at his crying face. All he could do was keep XiaYao
tightly in his embrace and never let go.

“ZhouDu,” XiaYao said in his trembling voice, “Can you say it again?”

“Say what?” ZhouDu replied vaguely.

XiaYao paled. He opened his mouth, and it took a while before he could
find his voice.

“Say-say you like me, can you say it again?”

ZhouDu tightened his grip around XiaYao, and spoke with his deep voice
into XiaYao’s ear, “XiaYao, I like you.”

“I like you, I really like you.” “I

love you, XiaYao.”

These were the words XiaYao had been awaiting two lives. He
couldn’t believe what he heard, and struggled to free himself from ZhouDu,
his glance fixated on the male before him, as if he were trying to make sure
that the ZhouDu standing before him was real.

ZhouDu started feeling embarrassed from being stared at too much,

so he turned his head so the side awkwardly. He quickly undid

the action when he saw a tinge of disappointment flash through XiaYao’s

And so, the two in the room remained standing there staring each other. A
light breeze blew in from the window that was never closed and brushed
past XiaYao’s cheeks.

ZhouDu’s cheeks were burning from XiaYao’s passionate stare. He looked

at XiaYao with anticipation, “Your turn.”

“What?” XiaYao was confused.

“Your turn to say it.”

“Say what?”

“Say you like me!” ZhouDu immediately felt anxious. “I already told you
that I like you. It’s your turn now, say it quickly.”

XiaYao’s gaze softened. His hands reached out to grab onto

ZhouDu’s shoulders while he pressed his lips onto ZhouDu’s without any

passed through his mind.

XiaYao, who was only a few centimeters away, had his eyes closed, lashes
swaying slightly, and plastered on his good-looking face was a layer of bright

The kiss was like a piece of feather that swept through ZhouDu’s heart,
the sensation struck through him like a bolt of lightning, leaving his
whole body limp and numb.

The kiss didn’t last longer than a simple peck. Before ZhouDu could react,
XiaYao already released his grip on his neck.

“I-,” XiaYao was embarrassed after the kiss as well, “I like you too,

ZhouDu’s heartbeat shot its way up to 180 beats per minute. The way he
looked at XiaYao was like a little puppy looking at meat bones, and he
said excitedly, “So you won’t get angry if I kiss you now?”

XiaYao lowered his head hurriedly and said, “We should head back to the

ZhouDu grabbed onto XiaYao’s hand and prevented him from

leaving, “No, you kissed me just now, I need to return the kiss.” And he
crashed into XiaYao before the latter could react.

XiaYao took a step back out of reflex, but that was stopped by a firm grip
over his waist.

“You kissed me, so it’s only fair that I kiss you back as well.” As he said
that, he placed his lips onto XiaYao’s.

XiaYao was overtaken by both the sweetness and sourness of the kiss.
ZhouDu’s kisses were not foreign. When they were in bed, no matter if it
was before or after the action, ZhouDu always liked to kiss him. His eyes,
nose, ears, chin, everywhere on his body had been kissed by ZhouDu.

XiaYao closed his eyes, picturing how ZhouDu used to kiss him in the
past. As a result, his mouth opened itself unconsciously.

Our little ZhouDu here had always thought that kissing was just a peck on
the lips. He never knew you could still open your mouth. Out of agitation, he
sucked on XiaYao’s bottom lip.

This act of ZhouDu’s sent electric shocks through both of them.

ZhouDu felt as though his heart could explode from beating too quickly,
and XiaYao felt the same. When they finally separated from each other, both
of them were gasping for air.
166 Report
“Le-Let’s go,” XiaYao stumbled over his own words. ZhouDu did not say
anything, as he kept his gaze firmly on XiaYao.

ZhouDu’s stare was eventually heating XiaYao up, so the latter could
only escape by pretending to retrieve the mineral water.

ZhouDu acted like an extra large-sized pet. Wherever XiaYao went, he

tagged along, and repeated the same questions again and again
relentlessly, “Can we kiss again tomorrow?”

“Can we kiss again the day after as well?” “Can

“Okay,” ZhouDu replied half-heartedly in discontent. He made use of the

can’t tomorrow?”

XiaYao almost started burning from his questions. He replied with a vague,

Feeling wronged, ZhouDu replied, “But I want to.”

XiaYao almost wanted to bury himself into the ground, “Stop asking.”

ZhouDu started feeling unhappy. He grabbed XiaYao’s hand, which was

holding onto the mineral bottles, and said, “Why can’t I ask? I like you, so I
want to kiss you tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow. I want to kiss XiaYao

make sure there’s no one else around…”

When he sent XiaYao home again, ZhouDu felt more confident. The two
walked side by side, and every few seconds, ZhouDu would use his eyes to
secretly peek at XiaYao next to him.

XiaYao tightly clutched the straps of his school bag, his heart
thumping erratically. His house wasn’t that far from the school. On the other
side of a large and busy road, past an empty alley, you could see the small
and slightly shabby-looking house that he lived in with his mother.

ZhouDu remembered what Jiang Shiwen had told him – when

walking, you must say some words to lighten the atmosphere, so he asked
XiaYao, “What did you do last night?”

XiaYao didn’t dare raise his head to look at him and deliberately left some
distance between them, fearing that other people would be able to see the
unusual pink atmosphere between the two. He paused for a moment,
lowered his head and softly said, “Nothing much, I read a book.”

ZhouDu couldn’t wait to ask the next question. “Then, did you miss me?”

XiaYao blushed and nodded.

ZhouDu quickly said, “I missed you too.” After saying that, he couldn’t
help but add, “I miss you every day.”

“Stop talking,” XiaYao interrupted in a flustered manner, “If someone

heard that, it’d be bad.”
169 Report
ZhouDu, immediately unhappy, quickly walked in front of XiaYao, stopped
him and said, “Why can’t I say it? I really like…”

“ZhouDu,” XiaYao looked at him in horror. There were crowds

everywhere. Occasionally, some students coming home late would brush
past the two of them. XiaYao grabbed ZhouDu and ran a few steps forward
until they turned into a small and empty alley.

When everyone was gone, XiaYao finally stopped and said to

ZhouDu, “We’re both men.”

ZhouDu heard and stared at XiaYao with a frown. “I know.”

“So, in front of other people, we can’t be too reckless, do you get it?
We… in places with lots of people, can only be ordinary
classmates.” After XiaYao finished speaking, he nervously looked at

ZhouDu had never thought about this before. He pondered for a

moment, “But I just like you. Even if you are a man, I still like you.”

His words inadvertently caused XiaYao to have a lump in his throat.

In a choked voice he said, “You aren’t afraid that other people will call us

“I’m not afraid,” ZhouDu said, stepping closer. “What’s wrong with being
gay? If liking you makes me gay, then we’ll be gay together. If anyone dares
to say anything against you, I’ll pummel them.”

XiaYao swallowed back some of the bitterness. Lifting his head to smile at
ZhouDu, he said, “If you aren’t afraid, then I’m not afraid, either. However,
when we’re at school, we should still be careful. Let’s discuss this after
we graduate, okay?”

ZhouDu saw that XiaYao really seemed to care about this, and could
only nod his head in agreement with his request. XiaYao saw that he had
persuaded him and felt relieved. Then he seemed to
170 Report
remember something else and asked, “Can you give me back the letter An
Pengpeng wrote to me?”

As soon as he finished speaking, ZhouDu’s hackles raised. He

reached into the pocket of his school uniform and holding the love letter
tightly, he guardedly asked, “What are you trying to do? Let me tell you, you
can’t like anyone else right now, you can only like me.”

XiaYao didn’t know whether to laugh or cry and explained, “You think
too much, I just wanted to return that letter to her.”

ZhouDu was relieved at this, but still made no move to return the letter to
XiaYao. “Isn’t it fine if I stick it in her desk tomorrow? Don’t tell me you want it
back so you can peek at what it says?”

XiaYao thought to himself, that letter was addressed to me. Even if I look at
it, there’s nothing wrong with that. How can it be considered peeping? Of
course, he would never say such things to ZhouDu’s face. He shook his
head and said to ZhouDu, “Tomorrow’s no good.”

“Why not?!” ZhouDu raised his eyebrows, “Could it be possible you really
want to take it back and read it?!”

XiaYao quickly explained, “No, it’s just that there are only two days left until
the monthly exam. I want to give it back to her after we take it – otherwise, it’ll
affect her frame of mind during the exam.”

Hearing this, ZhouDu was still unsatisfied and muttered, “What’s there to
be affected by?” Although he said that, in the end he nevertheless
handed the love letter to XiaYao. Finally, still uneasy, he warned, “You mustn’t
look at it.”

XiaYao nodded his head repeatedly, assuring that he would not look at
the letter. At this, ZhouDu finally allowed his expression to relax.

Every so often, a few small children would run about through the alley.
XiaYao glanced at his watch and said to ZhouDu, “It’s getting
171 Report
late, you’d better head home.”

ZhouDu still wanted to stay with XiaYao for a while, but the other had
already been walked home, and there didn’t seem to be a reason to stay
anymore. He hung his head, let out a disappointed oh, and turned to

XiaYao stood behind him, staring at his silhouette for a moment.

He was unable to stop himself from shouting, “ZhouDu!”

ZhouDu turned back, looking at XiaYao in puzzlement. XiaYao, raising

his hand and waving, smiled and said, “See you tomorrow.”

ZhouDu’s mood suddenly brightened. That’s right, he could see XiaYao

again tomorrow.

The XiaYao whom he liked.

When ZhouDu’s shadow could no longer be seen, XiaYao finally turned

to walk home. Today had been the happiest day of his two lives, and he
felt like he was walking on air.

When he was almost at his front door, XiaYao noticed a black sedan
parked nearby across the street. Most of the building’s inhabitants
were labor workers, so when such an expensive car suddenly
appeared, XiaYao couldn’t help but turn his head.

While he was walking up the steps, an elegant woman wearing

exquisite makeup started coming downstairs. XiaYao flattened himself
against the wall, wanting to let her go first. Unexpectedly, the woman stopped
when she reached XiaYao.

In the shabby old corridor, the stairs were narrow and crowded. As soon as
she stopped, the distance between her and XiaYao almost disappeared.

With her perfume slowly circling XiaYao’s nose, she smiled politely yet
coolly. “XiaYao?”
172 Report
XiaYao looked at the woman before him in astonishment, wondering
how she knew him.

“Excuse me, you are?”

The woman did not answer XiaYao’s question and only smiled and nodded
at him before she turned and continued down the stairs.

XiaYao watched the woman get into the expensive car, then he slowly
went upstairs and went home.

The front door was unlocked and when XiaYao approached, he could
smell the same scent that had been on the woman coming from inside
the house.

XiaYao’s mother was currently sitting in the narrow living room, and
when XiaYao came in, he found a cup of tea sitting on the small table.

“Mom,” XiaYao stood at the door and shouted, and at this, XiaYao’s mother
was brought back to reality.

“School’s over?” XiaYao’s mother pulled out a smile for her son, then
stood up and asked, “Are you hungry? I’ll go cook for you now.”

XiaYao, while going to put his school bag back in his room, asked,
“How come you’re back so early today?”

XiaYao’s mother didn’t say anything, so XiaYao thought she didn’t hear
and asked again, “Did someone come in a few minutes ago? I met a
woman in the corridor.”

XiaYao’s mother did not have a very good look on her face. She picked
up the apron hanging on the wall and hummed

XiaYao continued to ask, “Who was that person? Why did she seem to
know me?”
173 Report
XiaYao’s mother paused in putting on the apron and said flatly, “She’s a
friend whom I haven’t seen in many years. Today, she came here from afar for
some business and stopped by to see me.”

XiaYao had followed her into the kitchen at this time. He bent down and
turned over some potatoes that were on the floor, then looked up at his
mother and said, “Let’s eat these tonight.”

XiaYao’s mother smiled and said okay.

XiaYao, after all, was someone who had lived two lives. He could see at a
glance that his mother seemed to be a bit absentminded. While peeling the
potatoes he said, “How come I’ve never heard of you having such a rich
friend before?”

XiaYao’s mother suddenly tightened her hand around the spatula she was
holding. She paused for quite a while before asking XiaYao, “YaoYao, do
you feel miserable living here with your mother?”

XiaYao’s heart was moved. He smiled and said, “Mom, what are you
saying? You’ve raised me all by yourself for so long, shouldn’t you be the
one who’s miserable? What do I have to be miserable about?”

XiaYao’s mother laughed bitterly, bending over to pull up XiaYao who

was still crouched on the ground. “All right, you don’t need to help out here.
Go back to your room and study.”

XiaYao knew his mother had a stubborn personality, and hearing this, he
put down the potatoes. He turned on the faucet and rinsed his hands, and
while shaking them dry, he said to her, “Okay, I’ll go read my books since
the monthly exam is in two days.”

XiaYao’s mother frowned at this and said, “Why didn’t you tell me a few
days ago? There’s no meat at home today; I’ll go to the supermarket
right now to see if they still have any.”

“Mom, don’t go.” XiaYao grabbed his mother’s arm. “It’s already
174 Report
this late, not to mention there might not be any meat left, and even if there is, it
certainly won’t be fresh either.”

XiaYao’s mother felt that what he said made sense. “Then

tomorrow morning I will buy some large bones to make soup for you.”

XiaYao knew he couldn’t stop his mother and could only nod in

ZhouDu crawled into bed after showering. He leaned against the

headboard, and in his hands, he held the diary XiaYao gave him.

While reading, he couldn’t help but laugh giddily. Suddenly, his cell phone

ZhouDu picked it up and saw that WangHao was calling. Just as he hit the
answer button, he heard WangHao bellow through the phone, “ZhouDu,
where are you right now?! Come here, quick! ZhangYang got beaten up!”

ZhouDu stood up from the bed and bent down to pull open a drawer.
While stuffing the diary inside, he said, “What happened? Speak slower,
where are you two right now?”

WangHao seemed to have a lot of people over there with him. It was very
noisy, and after a moment, he finally bellowed at ZhouDu again, “We’re by
the entrance of the internet café, at the snack street behind the school, come
quick!” As soon as he finished talking, he hung up.

ZhouDu inwardly cursed at WangHao, ‘dumbass,’ and quickly

changed out of his pajamas.

When he ran downstairs, ZhouDu’s mother was currently holding

ZhouDu’s younger sister and walking about the kitchen. She saw that ZhouDu
seemed to be in a hurry, raised an eyebrow and asked, “Where are you
going so late?”
175 Report
While changing shoes, he said to his mother, “WangHao called me about
something, I’ll be back soon.”

ZhouDu’s mother swept her eyes over him and said, “It’s already this late,
what business could be so urgent? You aren’t going out to do something
bad, right?”

ZhouDu pulled open the front door, turned his head to his mother and said,
“No, it’s just a small thing. Help me keep this a secret from dad?” After saying
that, he disappeared like a gust of wind.

The family nanny took baby ZhouZhou from ZhouDu’s mother’s arms,
and looking worried, she said, “Madam, it’s almost nine o’clock.”

“It’s nothing.” ZhouDu’s mother sat down on the sofa and reached for the
honey water that the nanny had steeped for her. She took a sip and then
said, “You know kids, it’s better to be a bit naughty.”

The nanny, seeing that even his mother didn’t care, could only close
her mouth and stop talking.

ZhouDu hastily called a taxi and rushed toward the school. He sat in the
car and called WangHao over and over, but never got an answer.

“Sir, please go a bit faster.” ZhouDu couldn’t help but rush the driver in
front of him.

The cab driver swept his eyes at ZhouDu through the rearview mirror
and said slowly, “No matter how fast I go, the car still only has four wheels.
Did you want it to fly as well? What’s happened this evening that’s got
you so anxious?”

ZhouDu was not in the mood to chat with the driver. Seeing this, the man
closed his mouth and turned his head forward again.

After nearly twenty minutes, ZhouDu finally made it to the black
176 Report
Internet café behind the school. As soon as he showed up, someone yelled
at the top of their lungs, “ZhouDu!” t/n: Black Internet cafés operate
illegally, do not restrict online users and Internet content, and usually have
labor workers and students as customers.

At this, ZhouDu discovered WangHao and ZhangYang sitting in the corner.

“What happened?” ZhouDu ran up to them and asked anxiously.

WangHao looked like he had been punched in the corner of his mouth,
the bruise starting to spread. He curled his lip in a sneer and said, “Just got
beaten up.”

“Who beat you?”

WangHao didn’t say anything, but next to them ZhangYang suddenly

lifted his head and said hoarsely, “Liu Sanqiang and his friends.”

Every school has a few ignorant bullies. Liu Sanqiang was one of them.
He was often criticized by the school bulletin, but he still did what he
wanted. ZhouDu and his friends would normally not have anything to do
with him. That was because this Liu Sanqiang fellow had already become
unsatisfied with acting like a tyrant at school, and was often seen hanging
out with gangsters.

“What did you go and provoke him for?”

“I didn’t!” WangHao hurriedly explained. “After school today, I wanted

to come here and play some games to relax for a bit.” He said, looking
guiltily at the nearby ZhangYang.

WangHao’s test scores were the worst among the three of them. ZhouDu
was a person who didn’t care too much about grades, so he never really paid
attention to this aspect of WangHao’s. However, ZhangYang was not the
same. Before each exam, he would help
177 Report
WangHao cram so that his scores would not be too bad.

WangHao himself was an individual who didn’t like learning. Every time
ZhangYang pressured him to study, he would never say anything, but
in his mind he was actually very resistant.

ZhouDu had always felt that this was their own business, so he never
interfered. It seemed like today, WangHao stealthily evaded ZhangYang
and ran here alone to the Internet café to play games.

“How did the fight start?” ZhouDu, with one hand each, pulled up the two
people sitting on the ground.

When ZhangYang stood up, ZhouDu could now see at a glance that he was
more seriously injured than WangHao. One eye was completely
swollen, his face was black and blue, and it seemed like some mottled
bloodstains were still visible.

“How could it be this serious?” ZhouDu’s eyebrows knit in a frown. He

pulled ZhangYang’s arm and said, “Quickly come with me to the hospital.”

“Don’t touch him!” WangHao shrieked. He slapped ZhouDu’s hand away

and said, “His arm is injured.”

ZhouDu gave WangHao a dirty look. “I’ll get even with you later, first I
have to send ZhangYang to the hospital.”

WangHao helped ZhangYang into the back of the taxi. ZhouDu sat in the
front passenger seat with a scowl on his face and gave WangHao the
stink eye.

ZhangYang, who had originally been silent, saw WangHao being

scolded and defended him, saying, “This wasn’t his fault.”

ZhouDu said ‘hmph’ unhappily, his face turned cold, and he stopped

WangHao hung his head, sitting next to ZhangYang without a word.

He looked uneasily at ZhangYang beside him, and eventually whispered out
a ‘sorry’.

ZhangYang raised his hand and patted the other’s shaggy head. He
sighed and said, “If you don’t like studying, then I won’t force you anymore.”

WangHao was suddenly anxious. He blushed and defended, “I don’t

dislike it.”

ZhouDu spoke coldly, his words cutting even deeper. “I already told you
before not to bother with him. He’s hopeless.”

WangHao viciously kicked the back of ZhouDu’s seat in anger.

When ZhangYang was finally sent home from the hospital, it was already
eleven o’clock at night. ZhouDu and WangHao were childhood
friends; both lived in the same wealthy neighborhood. WangHao did not
dare go home with injuries. On the way back, he stammered to ZhouDu,
“Can you let me stay at your house tonight?”

“No way,” ZhouDu refused coldly.

WangHao was dejected for a long time, then an idea suddenly flashed
in his mind. He looked at ZhouDu, cleared his throat and said, “Don’t you want
to know what XiaYao likes?”

ZhouDu, without batting an eyelid, looked at him and asked, “You already
found out?”

“Uh huh.” WangHao nodded his head repeatedly.

ZhouDu raised an eyebrow, signaling him to speak. WangHao bargained

and said, “I don’t want that model anymore. Can’t you give me shelter for
the night instead?”

“First tell me what he likes.”

WangHao looked left and right, and seeing that there was no one around,
he moved in close to ZhouDu’s ear like he was about to tell him some
important secret and said, “He likes An Pengpeng.”

ZhouDu’s complexion immediately changed, and gritting his teeth he said,

“Who told you that?”

WangHao shrugged. “Is this something that even needs to be told?

Everyone in the class can now see that there’s something between those

“Bullshit!” ZhouDu furiously roared, “How come I can’t see it?” “Oh, ZhouDu,

I’m not trying to insult you. Look, ever since we were

young, there were many girls who had crushes on you; did you
discover any of them? The school flower could have done everything besides
carving ‘I like you’ on her forehead, and you still wouldn’t get it. I suspect you
have a problem here.” WangHao pointed to his forehead and finally let
out a sigh. “It really is a waste having such a handsome face; what a pity.”

ZhouDu froze for a bit and said, “From childhood until now there were
people who liked me?”

WangHao couldn’t help but roll his eyes and said, “Do you still
remember LiuFei who used to live in one of the houses in the row behind

ZhouDu shook his head.

WangHao blew his lid and said, “We all used to go to the same
elementary school. You can’t remember any of it?”

ZhouDu frowned and thought for a bit before saying, “It seems like there
was such a person.”

WangHao went on to say, “In middle school, her family was going to move
to a different city. One time after school, that little girl was extremely sad and
cried in front of you, and you actually ending up saying, ‘Your snot is dripping
out,’ and from then on she did not dare face you.”

ZhouDu suddenly realized that and said, “I remember it now, but what
does that have to do with someone liking me?”

WangHao showed a sympathetic expression and said, “ZhouDu,

whoever ends up in a relationship with you in the future will also be
extremely unlucky.”

ZhouDu unhappily said, “What do you mean?”

“Do you know how to have a relationship? You’re a blockhead.

Whoever dates you will definitely be furious.”

ZhouDu lifted his foot and kicked, but WangHao quickly dodged it. Then, he
cheaply moved in front of him and said, “You’ll let me stay over tonight now,
right?” However, ZhouDu ruthlessly rejected him.

“Why?!” WangHao protested. “I already asked for you and you’re
181 Report
going back on your word?”

ZhouDu coldly said, “What you heard was wrong.” “Eh?”

WangHao had a confused look on his face.

ZhouDu was unwilling to explain anymore. He quickly started running,

leaving the other person far, far behind. He thought, XiaYao and An
Pengpeng didn’t have anything between them. The person who actually
had something with XiaYao should be ZhouDu himself.

The next morning, ZhouDu had two very dark circles under his eyes
when he came to class. Before going to bed last night, he kept thinking about
the sentence WangHao said to him—whoever ends up in a relationship with
you will be extremely unlucky.

He did not want to admit it, but after thinking it over carefully, he realized
that he really didn’t have any love experience. He liked XiaYao very
much. Apart from sending him home every day and doing homework
together, ZhouDu also wanted to do something that everyone else does
when in a relationship.

Unfortunately, he didn’t know what he should do. Even his plans to pursue
XiaYao were something that Jiang Shiwen helped him come up with. He
couldn’t possibly go to Jiang Shiwen for everything. Moreover, XiaYao
already said he didn’t want other people knowing their business, so it was
even more impossible for him to ask Jiang Shiwen how he should act in his
relationship with XiaYao.

“Will I be given the cold shoulder by XiaYao?” ZhouDu thought with

trepidation. This caused him to spend all night immersed in a panic that
XiaYao would discover he didn’t know how to have a relationship,
and then toss him aside.

“I will definitely not let this happen,” ZhouDu secretly vowed. XiaYao sat in

his seat and could not help but want to look back at
ZhouDu. With the time taken for him to pick up five pencils, he finally
182 Report
discovered that ZhouDu seemed to have something on his mind.

XiaYao’s first reaction was whether ZhouDu was starting to have regrets.
The thought of such a possibility instantly made his face pale. XiaYao
anxiously sat in his seat, completely unable to concentrate on paying
attention to the English book in his hands.

After class, XiaYao got ready to go to the bathroom. In the hallway, he

happened to meet ZhouDu who was about to enter the classroom. He
nervously wanted to say hello to him, but he did not expect ZhouDu to
lower his head and hurry past him, as if he did not want to see him at all.

XiaYao felt as if his whole body had fallen through a hole in ice; he was so
cold his teeth chattered.

In fact, ZhouDu was not deliberately trying to ignore XiaYao. On one

hand, he was afraid of XiaYao finding out about the fact that he didn’t know
how to be in a relationship. On the other, ZhouDu kept in mind the words that
XiaYao had said to him – when at school, they could only be ordinary

He really wanted to talk with XiaYao, but he was also afraid that he couldn’t
stop himself from spouting things like ‘I like you,’ so he could only walk
past him in a hurry.

XiaYao was absentminded all day. When school let out in the
afternoon, he continually raised his head to peek at the classroom door.
Seeing that the person he missed was not waiting there, his face finally
showed a disappointed expression.

He packed his school bag and got ready to leave, but at the
classroom door he saw An Pengpeng.

When An Pengpeng saw XiaYao, she quickly blushed and

stammered, “You don’t need to be on duty today, right?
183 Report
After XiaYao found out how An Pengpeng felt about him, facing her again
was always a bit uncomfortable. He said ‘yeah’ and also asked, “You don’t
need to, either, right?”

Someone walked past the two of them and deliberately bumped into
XiaYao. XiaYao, who wasn’t paying attention, was bumped onto An

“I’m sorry,” he quickly apologized.

An Pengpeng blushed and said, “It’s okay. Are you heading home?
Let’s go together.”

Their two houses were not in the same direction. Even if they walked
together, they could only go the short distance from the school building
to the school gate.

XiaYao didn’t want to affect An Pengpeng’s frame of mind, so he nodded

his head and the two people walked outside the school side by side.

As ZhouDu didn’t want to make XiaYao feel awkward or

embarrassed, he deliberately waited at the school gate beforehand, thinking
that as soon as XiaYao came out, he could follow behind him and send him

To this end, he also deliberately found an excuse to refuse

WangHao who had been trying to drag him to go visit ZhangYang.
However, what he never thought of was, XiaYao would be coming out of the
school gate together with An PengPeng.

ZhouDu could not describe the rising anger he felt at the moment. He
wanted to grab XiaYao and ask him what he meant by doing that. Didn’t he
already say that he liked him? Why was he with An Pengpeng yet

He stared blankly as XiaYao and An Pengpeng smiled and said

goodbye to each other. When he saw XiaYao walk past him, he finally
184 Report
lost his reason and hurriedly chased after him.

He followed behind XiaYao without a word, and XiaYao knew

instantly when ZhouDu walked up. He turned back several times wanting
to talk with ZhouDu, but seeing ZhouDu’s scowl, he ultimately remained

XiaYao walked very slowly, and ZhouDu followed very slowly. When the two
people reached the small alley, ZhouDu suddenly rushed forward and
held XiaYao in his arms.

“Now there’s no one,” ZhouDu said quietly.

XiaYao finally let go of his troubled feelings. He laid his chin on

ZhouDu’s shoulders and smiled.

ZhouDu hugged him just like that for a while until he was no longer angry,
then he reluctantly released XiaYao.

“Why do you want to be with An Pengpeng?” ZhouDu’s face took on a hurt

expression. “Did you know that I was waiting at the school gate for a long

XiaYao did not expect that ZhouDu would be waiting for him at the gate, and
with an apologetic face he said, “I’m sorry, I didn’t see you. I thought you had
already gone home first.”

“So you went together with An Pengpeng?!” ZhouDu accused.

XiaYao felt that he had only walked from the school building to the school
gate with her, but seeing ZhouDu look so angry and anxious, his heart
instantly melted. Trying to soothe ZhouDu, he said, “It was my fault. time I will
definitely only go home with you.”

ZhouDu twisted his head to the side.

XiaYao looked left and right, and seeing that there was no one, he then
asked in a whisper, “Do you want to kiss, ZhouDu?”
185 Report
ZhouDu immediately turned his head back, and with sparkling eyes, he
nodded. XiaYao quickly kissed the corner of his mouth, and then blushing,
he ran far away.

“See you tomorrow!” he waved hard at ZhouDu.

ZhouDu dazedly looked at XiaYao’s smiling face, and with red ears, he
stuttered, “See, see you tomorrow.”

After returning home, ZhouDu sat in front of his desk, touching the corner of
his mouth from time to time. One moment he was laughing giddily and the
next moment he was frowning. When he thought about WangHao
saying that he didn’t know how to have a relationship, he felt very
anxious and scared.

Suddenly, he had an idea; he thought of a solution. Since he

couldn’t ask the people around him, he could just go on the Internet and use
Baidu. t/n: Baidu is a Chinese search engine like Google

ZhouDu felt that he was simply too smart. The Internet was sure to have
instructions on how to have a relationship.

After eating dinner, ZhouDu took advantage of the gap between his father
coming home and his mother accompanying his little sister in order to sneak
into his father’s study.

ZhouDu turned on the computer and entered “How to have a


The first answer that popped up was—how to properly have a

relationship. ZhouDu excitedly entered the website.

While he browsed, he committed the contents to memory.

First of all, you need to ask the person you like for their phone
number. ZhouDu thought for a while. He seemed to remember XiaYao
saying he didn’t have a cell phone. Then, this step he couldn’t accomplish.
186 Report
Give her things that she likes. ZhouDu didn’t know what XiaYao liked.
He decided to find an opportunity to beat around the bush a bit.

Go on a date. ZhouDu looked at those few words before he finally reacted.

That’s right, weren’t dates the most important part of a relationship? He
was like a martial arts master who suddenly got a rare book of secret
techniques, and he was ecstatic.

ZhouDu quickly followed Baidu’s dating procedures and made

arrangements. Most of the answers said to take the person you like to the
movies, to eat, and finally to find a small empty park and walk for a while, etc.

ZhouDu discovered that he liked all of these suggestions very much.

He couldn’t help but look at it over and over, keeping the relationship
bible firmly in his mind.

This week, there were monthly exams on Thursday and Friday. After
testing, the school would have two days off. ZhouDu decided to take
advantage of the weekend after the monthly exams. He wanted to go on a
date with XiaYao.

Just thinking of the word date, ZhouDu’s mind suddenly seemed like it
had been steeped in a candy jar – it was exceedingly sweet.

He couldn’t help but want to run to XiaYao’s side right now and tell him
about the plans for the date this weekend. With this excited mood,
ZhouDu successfully had another restless night.

The next day in class, as soon as XiaYao opened his desk, he

discovered that someone had put a note there. His first reaction was to look
over at An Pengpeng’s seat, but An Pengpeng wasn’t here yet.

ZhouDu sat expectantly in his seat, waiting for XiaYao’s reaction after
reading the contents of the note.
187 Report
XiaYao opened the note. On it, in large and elegant script, there were
five words—Let’s go on a date.

He looked at the familiar handwriting, and couldn’t help but look back in
ZhouDu’s direction. ZhouDu raised his eyebrows at him. XiaYao smiled
and mouthed at him across the crowded room—okay.

ZhouDu looked at XiaYao’s delighted face and his heart suddenly skipped
a few beats. My dear XiaYao, why are you so beautiful?

During the two exam days, the atmosphere in class was especially serious.
Even Fatty, who would usually step into the classroom right at the bell, was in
his seat half an hour early, and he didn’t have any steamed meat buns in his

XiaYao was also very nervous; he was already bad at physics in his
previous life. After being reborn directly into his senior year, he had forgotten
almost all his physics knowledge from the past two years of high school. t/n:
high school in China is 3 years

Fortunately, he had a good foundation in his other subjects,

especially English. In university he majored in English; dealing with a high
school English test was still no problem.

ZhouDu, as a top student, really had no interest in the monthly exams.

He sat in the back, holding his head in his hand, watching XiaYao’s back
in a daze.

He had already bought the movie tickets, the restaurant where they
would eat at was already booked in advance, and he had already
scoped out the small park they were going to for their date. Everything was
ready; he was just waiting for the weekend.

He was so lost in thought, looking at XiaYao, that he didn’t even notice

WangHao appear next to him.

“Hey, what’s got you in a daze?” WangHao reached out a hand and patted
his shoulder a bit.

ZhouDu was startled by him, and said grumpily, “What are you
189 Report

WangHao mysteriously snuck up to him and whispered, “Do you have

time this weekend?”


“Don’t you usually always have time? How come this weekend you
suddenly don’t?” WangHao asked in disbelief. “After this week’s testing,
how about we go out and relax?”

“Not interested.”

“Don’t be like that.” WangHao persevered and went on to say, “You

know brother Tao, Tao WenBo? He called us to go to city A this weekend.”

“Not going.”

“Hey, ZhouDuDu don’t be like that~~” WangHao became even more


ZhouDu lifted his foot and kicked, angrily spitting out the words,
“Piss off.”

No one was getting in the way of his date with XiaYao this

The two days of testing passed by quickly. Saturday morning, the Zhou
family’s nanny got up to prepare breakfast for the household. She jumped in
surprise when ZhouDu came out of the bathroom.

ZhouDu had already washed his face and brushed his teeth, and he was
currently holding his father’s cologne.

“ZhouDu, what are you doing up so early?” the nanny whispered from the
living room.
190 Report
ZhouDu waved his hand and said, “I have a little something to take care of,
don’t worry about it, you can go back to work.” When the nanny heard this,
she didn’t question him further and turned to go into the kitchen.

ZhouDu changed into several different outfits and fixed his hair over
and over. He even made a point to spray a little breath freshener
just before leaving.

ZhouDu’s mother sleepily walked down from the second floor

bedroom and happened to see ZhouDu about to leave. She yawned, and
then saw her handsome son all dressed up and ready to go out. Casually,
she said, “Son, are you going on a date?”

ZhouDu stumbled. He turned back to his mother and bellowed,

“What nonsense!” Then, with red-tipped ears, he quickly sped away.

It was still early. ZhouDu had originally planned on taking a taxi, but then
he thought that it’d be better to take the bus to XiaYao’s house.

He remembered riding the bus together with XiaYao for the first time,
and how the two of them had to squeeze together due to the crowd. He was
buzzing with excitement; he couldn’t wait to ride the bus with XiaYao
around H city later.

While he was already on his way, XiaYao had just gotten up.
ZhouDu had told him that the movie was at 3 o’clock in the
afternoon, so he planned to eat lunch before leaving. The two of them
had agreed to meet at the school gate.

However, they forgot the most important thing, which was at what time they
would meet.

ZhouDu arrived to school at 8:30 AM. When it was almost 9:00 AM and he
still didn’t see XiaYao, he became a little anxious.
191 Report
Could it be that XiaYao backed out? The more ZhouDu thought, the more
uneasy he became. His wait became even more perturbed. He looked in the
direction of XiaYao’s house, thought for a while, and started walking over.

XiaYao’s mother had already left to set up the stall. XiaYao looked at the
breakfast she had prepared for him in the kitchen, and casually
started eating in his pajamas.

The two days of testing really took a toll on him. He planned to have
breakfast and then rest a while.

Right when he was about to put away the tableware, there was
suddenly a knock on the door. XiaYao looked at the door in confusion. If his
mother was coming home, she would have brought her keys. Plus, usually
no one ever came to their house.

However, he was a big boy that was almost 1.8 meters tall; he wasn’t
afraid of strangers coming to the door. XiaYao set down the tableware. He
walked to the door and asked, “Who’s there?”

Outside the door, ZhouDu replied with a hint of nervousness, “It’s me,

XiaYao’s heartbeat suddenly became erratic. He was still wearing

pajamas and he also had a bedhead.

“Open the door.” ZhouDu knocked again.

XiaYao felt that he wasn’t a girl. If his clothes weren’t neat, then they
weren’t neat. He gritted his teeth and opened the door.

As soon as the door opened, the first thing ZhouDu saw was XiaYao in his
pajamas, his hair a mess.

Seeing XiaYao like this actually made him think that he was
unexpectedly cute. ZhouDu felt himself beyond saving.
192 Report
“I,” he stuttered a bit and went on to say, “I waited for you for so long and
you still didn’t come.”

XiaYao asked in surprise, “Aren’t we going to the movie in the


ZhouDu realized then that he was too impatient.

“Come in.” XiaYao moved sideways to let ZhouDu in. When

ZhouDu passed by him, he happened to smell XiaYao’s delicious scent
after having recently gotten out of bed. He stood behind XiaYao and
said with embarrassment, “Did I disturb your sleep?”

“No, I was already awake.” XiaYao was also somewhat at a loss at what to
do. Being in the same room as ZhouDu always made him very nervous.

“Where’s godmother?” ZhouDu asked. XiaYao was shocked for a bit,

before remembering who he was talking about.

“She went to set up the stall.”

“Oh.” ZhouDu nodded, not daring to look at XiaYao’s body.

Although XiaYao’s pajamas had only been worn for a bit more than a year,
he had grown a lot this year, causing his clothes to quickly become small.

Usually, for the sake of comfort, he would leave the two top buttons
unbuttoned, but he completely forgot about it. ZhouDu swept his eyes over him.
He could clearly see XiaYao’s beautiful collarbone and partly visible chest.

“Sit down.” XiaYao bent over to move the stool. From that angle, ZhouDu
happened to get a clear view of his nipples. His face burned up and he
quickly sat down.

XiaYao turned, wanting to go back to his room to change out of his
193 Report
pajamas. ZhouDu quickly asked, “Where are you going?”

XiaYao was too embarrassed to say that he was going to change clothes
so he had to come up with an excuse. “I didn’t make my bed. I’m going to go
make it now.”

“Can I see your room?” ZhouDu got up as well.

XiaYao felt that his room was presentable enough, so he nodded.

ZhouDu followed him into his room.

XiaYao’s house was very small and very crowded to ZhouDu.

He lived in a four-story villa. His own room was bigger than

XiaYao’s entire house. After entering XiaYao’s room, he discovered that
this room was honestly too small. It was so small that just standing
together with XiaYao left almost no space to turn around.

“My room is a bit small.” XiaYao said with embarrassment, “If you feel it’s
too crowded, then go outside and wait for me.”

ZhouDu shook his head without saying anything, but his eyes kept roaming
over XiaYao’s body.

XiaYao’s face heated up knowing he was being watched; without any

better option he bent over and fixed the messy sheets.

Suddenly, a warm chest nestled against his back, and XiaYao’s body
shook from head to toe. From behind, ZhouDu put his arms around his
waist, holding him tight in his arms.

XiaYao’s face suddenly turned red.

ZhouDu leaned in close to XiaYao’s ear; his warm breath puffed in

XiaYao’s ear. “Now it’s just the two of us.” He said huskily, “You said before
that we can kiss when it’s just the two of us.”

ZhouDu squeezed his arms tightly around XiaYao’s waist. He
194 Report
breathed unevenly and asked XiaYao, “Can we kiss now?”

XiaYao felt that his mouth was a little dry. He blushed while nodding
and turned around. After turning, the two were almost face to face. XiaYao
subconsciously stepped back and fell on the bed.

ZhouDu bent down, and with one hand propped next to XiaYao’s side, he
slowly lowered his head.

Right as their two lips touched, ZhouDu forcefully pounced on XiaYao

and pressed him down on the bed.

XiaYao’s hands were on ZhouDu’s chest, and he subconsciously

prepared to take off his clothes. When his hands touched the waistband
of ZhouDu’s pants, he suddenly woke up and quickly pushed ZhouDu

“All right.” XiaYao panted and said to ZhouDu, “You. You, get up quickly.”

ZhouDu’s ear tips were red. He guiltily turned his head to the side, not
daring to look XiaYao in the eye. Stuttering, he asked, “Where’s the

When ZhouDu went to the bathroom, XiaYao took the opportunity to take
off his pajamas. Just a minute ago he had almost treated ZhouDu like he
was the ZhouDu from his previous life.

If he hadn’t woken up in time, he just might have stripped ZhouDu’s

pants off.

The more XiaYao thought about it the more embarrassed he

became. He had slept together countless times with the previous
ZhouDu, but the current ZhouDu still wasn’t an adult yet. Plus, XiaYao
guessed that ZhouDu didn’t understand how things worked between two
men – making love.

When ZhouDu had finished solving his embarrassing ‘problem,’
195 Report
XiaYao had also finished changing clothes.

“Why don’t the two of us go out for a stroll?” XiaYao suggested. If the two of
them were to stay together any longer, XiaYao was afraid of what would
happen next.

After heading out, ZhouDu finally came back to reality from the midst of
his embarrassment. He looked at XiaYao next to him, and his heart felt
sweet and soft. He couldn’t help but ask, “What did you do last night?”

XiaYao smirked. He looked at ZhouDu in amusement and said, “I missed

you last night.”

ZhouDu did not expect XiaYao to be so direct. He froze, then he

ecstatically said, “I missed you too!”

The two of them looked at each other and smiled.

ZhouDu put his hand into his pockets and happened to touch the phone
he had put in his pocket. He thought a bit and said, “XiaYao, I want to give
you a gift.”

“A gift?” XiaYao asked curiously, “What kind of gift?”

“I want to give you a cell phone.” ZhouDu said carefully, “This way when I’m
missing you, I can just call you.”

XiaYao paused and said, “A cell phone is too expensive…”

“I know!” ZhouDu quickly interrupted him and said, “But I just wanted
to give it to you. I have money; it’s my own money. I especially
wanted to give you a present,” he said with a hint of supplication. XiaYao
knew that ZhouDu’s family had money. Perhaps a cell phone in his eyes was
just like buying a scallion pancake.

“You have to give me a gift too.” ZhouDu, in order to make XiaYao feel at
ease, took the initiative to ask XiaYao for a gift.
196 Report
XiaYao had actually saved a little money, but he wanted to keep it to use for
his mother’s yearly physical examination. If he bought a cell phone, then he
wouldn’t have money to take his mother to her examination.

“All right,” XiaYao finally compromised. He would treat the cell phone
as if he had asked to borrow it from ZhouDu. After being reborn, he also
thought that not having a cell phone was a very troublesome thing.

“Let’s go pick one out together then!” ZhouDu saw that XiaYao had stopped
being stubborn. He excitedly pulled on his arm and said, “You can pay for
my bus fare.”

XiaYao smiled at him and said, “Okay.”

The two of them walked together to the bus stop.

What ZhouDu did not expect was that today the bus would be empty.
There was absolutely no opportunity for him to touch skin with XiaYao.

He dejectedly followed XiaYao onto the bus, and the two of them found a
seat near the back.

XiaYao saw that ZhouDu was elated just a moment ago, but his
expression had changed in the blink of an eye. He thought that he wasn’t
used to taking the bus, so he said to him, “If you don’t want to take the bus,
then why don’t we take a taxi?”

It wasn’t that ZhouDu didn’t want to take the bus; he didn’t want to ride the
bus while it was empty. There was no way he was going to tell XiaYao what
he was thinking, so he could only sullenly reply, “No need.”

At this time they were the only two people in the back of the bus. XiaYao
was all smiles when he turned his head to look at ZhouDu. He then reached
out and placed his hand over ZhouDu’s right hand that
197 Report
had been resting on his knee.

XiaYao’s hand was a bit cool to the touch. ZhouDu was startled and happily
turned to look at XiaYao. XiaYao looked straight ahead and pretended that
nothing had happened. ZhouDu flipped his hand over so he could grasp
XiaYao’s hand; the two of them sat like that with interlocking fingers until
they reached their destination.

After getting off the bus, ZhouDu reluctantly let go of his hand. The two of
them went to a cell phone store together. ZhouDu took out his cell phone and
said to the salesperson, “Give me another one like this.”

His cell phone was a New Year’s gift from his uncle and was said to be the
latest smartphone. The salesgirl glanced at it and apologetically
said that their store didn’t carry such a phone.

XiaYao knew that in 2008 smartphones were not yet popular. He pointed
at one of the more basic cell phones and said, “Let’s just get this one.”

ZhouDu originally planned on giving XiaYao the most expensive one, but
he was also afraid that he might refuse, so he had to accept XiaYao’s choice
of cell phone.

After picking out a phone, ZhouDu looked at the time. It wasn’t even 10
o’ clock yet. It was still too early to go eat. It was ZhouDu’s first date and he
had no experience, so when he encountered something like this that he
hadn’t planned for, he immediately panicked.

XiaYao seemed to be able to see his apprehension. He looked at the big

shopping mall opposite the bookstore and then said to ZhouDu, “Why
don’t we walk around the mall?”

There were many people who came to the mall to shop during the
weekend. XiaYao and ZhouDu stood together; the two of them
198 Report
bumped into each other from time to time as they tried to avoid colliding
with the other shoppers. Each time XiaYao bumped into ZhouDu, he was
like a child who had secretly eaten a piece of candy, and he was secretly
happy all morning.

When XiaYao walked to the second floor men’s clothing department,

he stopped. ZhouDu looked up and asked, “Do you want to buy clothes?”

XiaYao smiled and led ZhouDu in without saying a word.

When he entered, the two salesgirls standing at the door were

currently laughing and chatting with each other. One of them glanced
up and saw that XiaYao was wearing plain clothes, so she ignored him and
continued to chat with her coworker.

The salesgirl’s coworker saw ZhouDu who had been following behind
XiaYao. ZhouDu was wearing brand name clothes; ordinary people
wouldn’t notice, but the salespeople in these big shopping malls could tell
at a glance. With smiling faces, the two of them immediately surrounded
ZhouDu. ZhouDu saw them both step in and cut him off, separating him from
XiaYao. Suddenly he unhappily said, “Please let me through.”

One of the slim and statuesque salesgirls quickly turned sideways, and with
a smiling face said, “Excuse me, handsome guy, do you want to buy
formal clothes or casual clothes?”

ZhouDu kept his eyes on XiaYao, and saw that he had already turned
into the suits section. He didn’t even spare the beautiful women next to
him a glance, and quickly walked past them to catch up to XiaYao.

“Do you want to buy clothes?” ZhouDu asked.

XiaYao shook his head, and he continued to look around as he walked.

Meanwhile, the two salesgirls did not give up. Holding a suit
199 Report
up in her hand, one came up to ZhouDu again and said, “Handsome guy, do
you want to try this one on? I think that it matches you well.”

ZhouDu frowned impatiently, wanting them to back off. XiaYao glanced

at the clothes the salesgirl was holding, looked him up and down and said to
ZhouDu, “I haven’t seen you wear a suit yet.”

ZhouDu hearing those words, took the suit from the salesgirl and said, “If I
look bad, you can’t laugh at me.”

The statuesque salesgirl followed ZhouDu, and said while walking, “How
can it look bad? I can guarantee that you will look very handsome
after putting it on.” ZhouDu saw that she wanted to follow him into the fitting
room. He scowled and said, “Don’t follow me.”

The girl’s face was red with embarrassment as she explained, “I will help
hold your clothes.”

“No need.” ZhouDu coldly refused.

XiaYao saw that the two salesgirls were completely ignoring him and
said to them, “Help me pick out a tie.”

The statuesque salesgirl raised an eyebrow, and looking at him out of the
corner of her eye, she asked, “Are you wearing it yourself?”

XiaYao shook his head and said, “Choose one for the handsome guy
that was just here.”

The salesgirl ecstatically went to go pick out a tie.

The store was full of dressing mirrors. XiaYao stood in front of one and
looked at his reflection that was still young and had a trace of innocence.
His eyes were stained with a trace of confusion. Were those many years
spent with ZhouDu a dream after all? Or was what was happening right now
the dream?

When ZhouDu walked out after he finished changing, he just
200 Report
happened to see XiaYao standing in front of the mirror in a daze. He called
out XiaYao’s name, and at this, XiaYao came back to reality. He turned his
head and his heart suddenly stopped.

As a matter of fact, he had been tricking ZhouDu a moment ago. When he

was with ZhouDu in his previous life, he had seen him in a suit; he knew how
charming ZhouDu looked while wearing one.

He stared fixedly at the person in front of him, and seemed to forget

how to breathe.

ZhouDu saw that XiaYao was just watching him without saying a word,
and thought that the clothes looked bad on himself. He walked in front of
XiaYao in two or three steps and awkwardly asked, “Does it look that bad?”

XiaYao was taken aback. He quickly shook his head and said, “You look

ZhouDu smirked, and his eyes flashed with a glimmer of pride. At this time,
the salesgirl happened to bring over the tie she had picked out, and XiaYao
took it from her.

“Do you know to tie it?” XiaYao asked while holding up the tie.

As a matter of fact, ZhouDu did know how to tie a tie. He looked at XiaYao
who was standing in front of him, and then fibbed and said he didn’t know

The beautiful but undiscerning salesgirl immediately answered, “I’ll help


ZhouDu glared at her with a hateful look.

XiaYao loosened the tie, and pulling ZhouDu over to a dressing mirror,
he said, “We don’t want to trouble you, I’ll help him.”

“This doesn’t require your help, we’ll call you if we need
201 Report
something.” ZhouDu glanced sideways at the salesgirl and mouthed at her to
get out.

The beautiful salesgirl was forced to leave, crestfallen.

XiaYao was absorbed in tying ZhouDu’s tie, and didn’t notice that ZhouDu
was currently staring at him intently. When he looked up after he was
done, his gaze just happened to meet ZhouDu’s.

XiaYao’s heart skipped a beat. He blushed and let go of him.

In the mirror behind them, with ZhouDu so handsome and dazzling that
people couldn’t look directly at him, and XiaYao standing by his side, it
seemed like they were from two different worlds.

ZhouDu felt uncomfortable. He didn’t like this feeling, so he said to XiaYao,

“Do you like this suit?”

XiaYao said, “I chose it for you. You gave me a gift earlier, so this is my
return gift.”

ZhouDu inwardly frowned. How could a suit from a big shopping mall be
cheaper than a cell phone? He pretended to have an unsatisfied look
on his face and said, “I don’t like the color.”

XiaYao guessed what he was thinking, so he pointed to the tie and said,
“What I wanted to give you was this. Do you like the color of the tie?”

“You want to give me a tie?” ZhouDu happily asked.

XiaYao nodded.

“I like it.” ZhouDu’s face lit up. In his memory, his father’s ties were all
bought for him by his mother, and his uncle’s ties were all chosen by his
aunt. As a result, he always thought that giving a tie was something that
only couples could do.
202 Report
Right now XiaYao said he was going to give him a tie, how could he
possibly not like that?

“Then, I’ll go change out of these clothes.” ZhouDu felt that wearing
a suit always made him feel tight. He walked to the fitting room entrance,
then suddenly turned to XiaYao and said, “Can you help me take off my

XiaYao was forced to follow him into the fitting room.

As soon as he entered, ZhouDu pressed him against the door and kissed
him once. After they kissed, ZhouDu pressed his forehead against
XiaYao’s. He deliberately lowered his voice, and with a hint of huskiness he
said, “I like you.” While kissing the tip of XiaYao’s nose, he leaned in close to
his ear and said, “I like you very much.”

XiaYao blushed and said okay, then helped ZhouDu untie his tie.

After buying the gift, ZhouDu looked at the time and found that they
could go eat now. Accordingly, he wanted to take XiaYao to eat at a
restaurant on the fifth floor of the mall.

After heading up to the fifth floor, ZhouDu’s eyes accidentally swept to

a couple out of the corner of his eye. He secretly observed how others acted
in a relationship and planned to put it into practice immediately.

He only saw the girl holding the boy’s hand as the two of them walked
next to a machine. The girl stopped, and pointing at the machine,
pouted a bit to the boy.

ZhouDu was curious, so he slowed down and glanced sideways at what

the couple was doing. When the boy grabbed a doll from the machine, he
realized then that they were playing a claw machine. The girl, seeing that
her boyfriend had grabbed a toy all of a sudden, excitedly held the doll and
kissed it.

ZhouDu turned his head, and looking at the side of XiaYao’s face
203 Report
he said, “How about we play that?”

XiaYao looked over to where he was pointing and said okay.

There were three claw machines over there. ZhouDu walked to the
machine that was next to the boy, and XiaYao put in the money for him.

The girl, seeing the handsome ZhouDu, quickly turned to watch him

ZhouDu controlled the claw arm. It slowly descended, but when the claw
returned, he failed to grab anything.

Seeing this, the girl next to them took the initiative to say, “That machine
over there is more difficult, come over here.” She shoved the boy next to her
away and signaled for ZhouDu to come over.

“Boy-crazy.” The boy spit out, and moved next to XiaYao.

The girl’s full attention was placed on ZhouDu. She stood to the side and
instructed him, saying, “Slow down a bit when you’re about to grab it.”

XiaYao looked at the boy standing next to him, and slightly

apologetic he said, “Excuse me, why don’t you use this one?” As he spoke,
he moved sideways.

The boy wasn’t bad-looking. His hair was cut very short, and he
appeared to have a sunny disposition. He bent down and put in more money.
He then smirked at XiaYao and said, “Which do you want? I’ll get one for

ZhouDu was currently absorbed in the game, and completely didn’t notice
the situation over there.

The boy really did grab a doll quickly and effortlessly. He stuffed it in

“Are you talking about her? That’s my younger sister. If my girlfriend looked
like that, I wouldn’t dare leave the house with her.” t/n: someone beat this
kid up please

XiaYao stood awkwardly to the side, not knowing what to say.

“Fang Zeyu, do you want to die?!” The girl, hearing her own older brother
mock her in front of strangers, quickly rushed over wanting to hit him.

ZhouDu, who was next to them, finally grabbed a doll. He quickly bent
down and picked up the doll. He ecstatically turned around wanting to
give it to XiaYao, but discovered that XiaYao was already holding a rabbit

His excitement was immediately doused by a bucket of cold water. The girl

also discovered the plush teddy bear in ZhouDu’s hands.

She squealed, and running to ZhouDu’s side, she said, “You’re
amazing! My brother couldn’t grab this. Can you give it to me?”

ZhouDu clutched the bear, staring rigidly at XiaYao without a word.

“Knock it off.” The boy named Fang Zeyu pulled his sister back to his side
and said, “Let’s go eat already.”

The girl kept turning back every few steps as she was pulled away by her

ZhouDu scowled and stood nearby without a word. XiaYao

discovered then that ZhouDu seemed to be unhappy. He hurriedly asked,
“What’s wrong?”

ZhouDu pointed at the plush in XiaYao’s arms. Feeling wronged he
205 Report
said, “Why do you want to accept gifts from other people?”

XiaYao immediately explained, “He grabbed it and casually gave it to me

just now.”

“Toss it.”

“What?” XiaYao did not understand what ZhouDu meant.

ZhouDu snatched the doll from XiaYao’s arms and stuffed it into the
hatch of a nearby machine. Then, throwing the bear that he had grabbed into
XiaYao’s arms, he turned and left in a huff.

XiaYao looked at the plush teddy bear in his arms, realizing after the fact
that ZhouDu was angry.

Holding the bear, he quickly caught up to ZhouDu. With the fingers of his left
hand, he gently touched ZhouDu’s fingers and said, “Are you angry?”


“Don’t be angry. I don’t like that rabbit, I like the bear.” XiaYao tugged
on the bear’s ears and said, “How ugly was that rabbit? The bear is much

ZhouDu paused in his steps. He quickly glanced at XiaYao, then turned

his head back again. He said blankly, “Really?”

“Mhmm.” XiaYao nodded repeatedly.

ZhouDu couldn’t help but smirk, but he was also afraid of XiaYao
noticing, so he quickly put on a poker face.

“In the future, don’t accept things from other people, got it?” he self-
righteously scolded XiaYao.

206 Report
“Who knows if he has bad intentions?”


“He gave you such an ugly rabbit, he definitely has something against
you. time you see him ignore him, got it?”


XiaYao continued to walk while listening to ZhouDu ramble on and on

about the faults of the boy they had just met. However, in his mind he
was thinking about how cute ZhouDu was when he was jealous.

The two of them entered a restaurant together. It was currently

lunchtime, and there were several people sitting on the bench outside
the restaurant.

ZhouDu lifted his head and looked around, finding that the entrance
of every restaurant was filled with people. Only this restaurant seemed
to have less people.

“Let’s wait a bit.” XiaYao had also discovered the same problem and
pulled at ZhouDu, motioning him to sit down and wait a while.

They hadn’t been sitting down for long when a girl’s familiar voice shouted
in pleasant surprise, “Two handsome guys. You guys are eating here

ZhouDu looked up, and sure enough, it was the pair of siblings they
had seen next to the claw machine.

The girl quickly ran in front of them and said, “Do you guys not have
seats? It just so happens that it’s our turn. Should we get a table

Her brother was currently standing behind her with his hands in his
pockets, and pretended not to notice the plush teddy bear in

XiaYao felt a bit embarrassed. After all, the boy had only just given him the
plush, and he had thrown it away.

“No need.” ZhouDu sullenly refused the kindness of the people in front of

“Eh? But you guys will wait a long time. We were also just waiting for a
long time, so we went to the claw machine. Are you sure you don’t want to
come with us?”

“If they don’t want to, then forget it. What are you doing still nagging?
Let’s go in quickly.” The boy standing behind her urged impatiently.

“All right.” The girl, seeing that ZhouDu was unwilling, said nothing more and
followed her brother into the restaurant.

What ZhouDu didn’t expect was that they would have the opportunity
to meet for a third time.

When he had bought the drinks and popcorn and prepared to enter the
movie theater with XiaYao, he saw the siblings again at the entrance.

ZhouDu: “…”

“Gosh, this must be destiny.” After hearing their movie time she quickly
asked, “What row and which seats are you sitting in?”

XiaYao took out his ticket and compared it with the girl’s,
discovering unexpectedly that they were sitting in the same row.

ZhouDu’s seat was D12, and XiaYao’s was D13. And the girl’s
brother just happened to be seated next to XiaYao.

After looking at XiaYao’s movie ticket, the girl was all smiles and
208 Report
said to XiaYao, “Let me introduce myself. My name is Fang Yaoyao, this is my
brother Fang Zeyu.”

“I’m XiaYao, this is ZhouDu.” XiaYao also introduced the two of them.

“We really are destined to meet.” Fang Yaoyao excitedly said,

“Your name and mine both have ‘yao,’ haha.”

XiaYao smiled and explained, “My ‘yao’ is the one with three earths.”
t/n: 垚is the Chinese character in XiaYao’s name while 瑶is the character in
the girl’s name.

The girl’s eyes widened and she said, “So that word is pronounced ‘yao,’ I
always thought that it was pronounced ‘gui,’ hahaha.”

“Retard.” Her brother’s words cut like a knife from beside her. ZhouDu

scowled, and stood to the side without a word.

XiaYao glanced at him out of the corner of his eye and quickly said,
“Let’s go in, the movie will start soon.”

“Okay, okay.” Fang Yaoyao took the lead and went in.

ZhouDu purposely waited for the two of them to go in before he pulled

XiaYao inside. “Let’s switch seats later.”

XiaYao felt that it didn’t matter where they sat, so he nodded.

The two of them hadn’t been inside for long when the theater started
to go dark. After ZhouDu sat down, he discovered that Fang Zeyu really was
sitting on his right side.

He held the popcorn, his long legs slightly withdrawn. He stared blankly at
the screen in front of them.

Fang Zeyu leaned back, and turning his head to XiaYao, he asked,
“What happened to the rabbit I gave you?”
209 Report
XiaYao was embarrassed and didn’t know what to say. ZhouDu also
leaned back, and blocking Fang Zeyu’s line of sight he said defiantly,
“Tossed it.”

Fang Zeyu sized ZhouDu up for a bit, and narrowing his eyes he said,
“You two big boys coming to watch a movie together, you must have a really
good relationship.”

XiaYao explained in a panic, “He, he’s my younger brother.”

“Oh~” Fang Zeyu held out the word and then turned his head over to
concentrate on the movie.

However, ZhouDu was unable to contain his anger.

He stared fixedly at the big screen in front of him, trying to get the phrase
‘he is my brother’ out of his head, but the more he tried not to care, the more
he seemed to mind.

However, he couldn’t interrogate XiaYao in the theater, and had to sulk by


Until the end of the movie, ZhouDu still could not let it go. He stuffed
the almost untouched popcorn into XiaYao’s hands and went to the
bathroom alone.

XiaYao held the popcorn and waited at the theater entrance. Fang Yaoyao
happened to be waiting for her brother as well.

“What school are you from?” She moved close to XiaYao trying to cotton
up to him. t/n: I didn’t know this was an idiom in English but it means: to try to

“Wow~” Fang Yaoyao said in admiration, “A High School is full of top
students, eh? Does ZhouDu go there too?”

“Yeah.” XiaYao nodded. “We’re in the same class.”

“How unexpected, how unexpected. I went out and actually met two top
students, and they’re handsome too.” Fang Yaoyao looked boy-crazy. “Let’s
exchange numbers, this way if I don’t understand a problem, I can ask you.”

XiaYao apologetically said to her, “Sorry, I just bought a mobile phone

today and I don’t have a phone number yet.”

“Then do you know ZhouDu’s phone number?” The girl’s face flashed
with the hint of a blush.

XiaYao’s heart clenched; he realized then that Fang Yaoyao had fancied
ZhouDu all along.

“I,” he paused for a bit and said, “I don’t remember his cell phone number,
why don’t you ask him yourself?”

“Oh dear, I’m sorry.” Fang Yaoyao took out a sticky note from her bag and
wrote down her phone number. She stuffed it in XiaYao’s hands and said,
“When you guys go back later, can you give this to him for me?”

XiaYao had a bitter taste in his mouth and forced himself to say okay.

Fang Yaoyao, seeing that XiaYao agreed to help her, happily said thanks
and went on to ask XiaYao, “You and ZhouDu are classmates. Do you know if
he has a girlfriend at school or someone he likes?”

XiaYao opened his mouth, and didn’t know whether he should start talking
or not.

Fortunately, ZhouDu came out at this time.

“Let’s go.” His collar was a bit messy. He reached out a hand and took the
thing from XiaYao’s hands.

Fang Yaoyao, seeing ZhouDu come out, was too embarrassed to

inquire any further, so she said to them, “Goodbye.” Then, she rushed
over to her brother’s side.

XiaYao was preparing to turn around and leave with ZhouDu when he
heard Fang Yaoyao exclaim from behind them, “Brother, who hit you?!”

I assume that they went to their dinner reservation in between chapters

ZhouDu stood on the front steps of the restaurant, and glancing

tentatively at XiaYao, he said, “I hear there’s a park nearby. Shall we go for a

XiaYao stood next to ZhouDu, holding the plush teddy bear

ZhouDu had given him. He was familiar with the park ZhouDu was talking
about, and it wasn’t far from where they were. They just needed to cross
the large and busy road in front of them, then walk forward another dozen
meters or so, and they would arrive.

It was a lake park, not too big and not too small. There were several
people taking a walk, but even more couples out on dates.

Since there was a big shopping mall nearby, some couples would go for a
walk in the park after they had finished shopping and eating. While no one
knew whether the park’s planners had anticipated the situation, the street
lamps were specially designed to be very dim. As a result, it became even
more of a sanctuary for couples to go on dates.

“Okay,” XiaYao answered, staring at his toes.

ZhouDu joyfully pulled on XiaYao’s arm and they set out.

Meanwhile, not far from them, WangHao was currently sitting in the
family car. Through the car window, he happened to see XiaYao
213 Report
and ZhouDu on the roadside.

“This bastard said he had no time this weekend; turns out he came out with
XiaYao to have fun,” WangHao muttered to himself, and reached out a
hand to lower the window. He had planned to loudly call out ZhouDu’s
name, but to his surprise, he saw ZhouDu pulling XiaYao along as they ran
across the road and then disappeared.

“Close the car window,” WangHao’s mother said from the front
passenger seat, turning her head to her son. WangHao turned his head
and answered, “Mom, I thought I just saw ZhouDu.”

“There’s nothing unusual about seeing ZhouDu, now behave and sit
down properly.”

WangHao, seeing that his father had spoken, had no other choice but to
close the window.

There were small gazebos built all along the shore of the park’s lake at
predetermined intervals. They were built on the water, and each one had a
couple sitting in it.

XiaYao walked side by side with ZhouDu on the dimly lit small path around
the lake. From time to time, pedestrians coming from the opposite
direction would cut between the two of them.

ZhouDu racked his brains thinking about how to break the awkward
atmosphere. However, XiaYao spoke first. He asked ZhouDu, “My
diary… is it really with you?”

Alarm bells started to ring in ZhouDu’s head. He guardedly looked at

XiaYao and said, “So what if it is? You put it in my desk yourself; don’t try to
ask for it back.”

XiaYao blushed and said, “Then when I asked you at that time, why did you
say that you didn’t see it?”
214 Report
ZhouDu tried to beat around the bush, so he changed the subject, and said,
“A while ago when you were standing at the entrance of the movie theater
with that girl, what were you two talking about so happily?”

XiaYao sighed inwardly. He knew that this meant ZhouDu didn’t plan on
answering his question, so he explained, “We didn’t say anything. All we
did was stand together while waiting for you two to come out. Oh, that’s right.”
He dug out the phone number that Fang Yaoyao had slipped to him, and
handing it to ZhouDu, he said, “This is for you.”

ZhouDu saw that he had given him a small scrap of paper, and thought
that he had written some little secret on it. With red-tipped ears, he said,
“Really, what words can’t you say to my face that you would even write me a
note? How childish.”

XiaYao looked at ZhouDu awkwardly and explained, “This is

something Fang Yaoyao asked me to give to you. It’s her phone

ZhouDu, who was about to stuff the note in his pocket, paused, and his
face sank immediately. With a hint of anger in his tone, he asked, “She
asked you to give it to me so you just gave it to me?”

XiaYao also felt very wronged, so he said nothing.

ZhouDu hatefully threw the note into the nearby lake, then he
quickened his pace, and continued walking alone in silence.

“ZhouDu.” XiaYao quickly ran a few steps, and after catching up to him, he
said, “What’s the matter with you?”

When ZhouDu heard XiaYao ask that, he became even more choked
up with anger. He suddenly turned around, wanting to interrogate
XiaYao, but at this time there just happened to be pedestrians coming
toward them from the opposite direction.
215 Report
XiaYao was forced to move to the side so that they could pass
between him and ZhouDu. However, XiaYao didn’t know that his actions
just added more fuel to the fire. ZhouDu thought that XiaoYao moved away
from him as soon as he saw other people, and he felt angry and wronged.
He choked back the words he was about to say, and continued to walk
forward silently.

He hadn’t taken more than a few steps when the corner of his shirt was
gingerly grabbed.

“ZhouDu, don’t be angry.” XiaYao whispered an apology, saying,

“I’m sorry.”

When ZhouDu heard XiaYao softly whisper his apology, his heart
instantly melted, and the inexplicable anger from just a moment ago was
thoroughly extinguished.

He thought, how could a man such as myself always be mad at my

boyfriend? He turned and looked at XiaYao’s face without moving. He watched
him for a long time before he finally said, “I’m jealous.”

“Eh?” XiaYao didn’t understand.

“I was jealous when you accepted the rabbit plush from that guy.” ZhouDu
continued on methodically, “I was jealous when you talked to him in the movie
theater. I know that hitting people is wrong, but I won’t apologize.”

XiaYao said in confusion, “Hitting people? Whom did you hit?”

ZhouDu didn’t answer XiaYao’s question, and went on to say to him,

“That girl who asked you to give me her phone number, are you telling me you
weren’t jealous? XiaYao, are you still my boyfriend or not?”

XiaYao, hearing him say this, was very embarrassed. At that time, when
Fang Yaoyao asked him to help give ZhouDu her phone number, he
was actually very uncomfortable. Still, he had agreed to

promises, he had no other choice but to honestly hand over the note to

“I…” XiaYao opened his mouth, but before he could say anything, ZhouDu
spoke again and said, “ time, if you do this kind of thing again, I’ll…”

He wanted to say ‘I’ll give you a beating,’ but just thinking about it hurt his
heart, so he reconsidered his words and threatened him, saying, “I’ll give
you a kiss.”

XiaYao let out a burst of laughter. Looking left and right, he stuffed the teddy
bear he had been holding into ZhouDu’s arms. Then, he grabbed ZhouDu’s
collar and pulled him aside into the nearby woods.

If you kept walking upwards in this park, you would see that a row of large
trees had been planted there. This place was commonly known as the
adult-only area. Just by looking at the name, you could figure out what this
place was used for.

“What are you trying to do?” ZhouDu stumbled as he was being dragged
forward. XiaYao turned back, and smiling at him, he said, “Didn’t you just
say that you wanted to kiss me?”

He pulled ZhouDu to the side of a big tree and then leaned back against
it, his eyes staring expectantly at ZhouDu in front of him.

ZhouDu immediately blushed; there was currently no one around.

It was a good time to secretly do something.

His heart beat like a drum when he looked at XiaYao’s blushing face,
and he slowly lowered his head.

“Ah~” Suddenly a moan came from the nearby grass.

ZhouDu’s whole body immediately stiffened. He held his breath along

with XiaYao, and the two of them turned their heads at the
217 Report
same time to look towards the source of the sound.

“Ah~” An even louder moan reached their ears once again. XiaYao, as an
adult man who had lived two lifetimes, naturally knew what was being
done in the grass nearby.

ZhouDu frowned. He whispered to XiaYao, “There seem to be people

over there.”

“Uh huh.” XiaYao’s eyes flickered, and he didn’t dare look ZhouDu in the
eye. ZhouDu straightened himself up and prepared to shout, “Who’s over
there?” t/n: nooooooooooooooooooo omfg don’t do that

Luckily, XiaYao firmly held his hands over his mouth just as he was about
to speak.

“Mmph, mmph, mmph.” ZhouDu stared in wide-eyed confusion at XiaYao.

XiaYao said while blushing, “Don’t shout, those people are… are busy
doing things.”

“Doing things?” ZhouDu asked questioningly.

XiaYao blushed without saying anything. At this, ZhouDu finally realized

what was happening.

“Fuck.” He cursed in a whisper, and then pulling on XiaYao’s hand, he said,

“Let’s go.”

“Wait a minute.” XiaYao tightly held onto ZhouDu, not letting him leave. He
whispered, “Why should we go?” As he said that, he leaned his head up and
softly kissed ZhouDu on the lips.

ZhouDu was still young and hot-blooded; how could he possibly

withstand XiaYao’s teasing? Immediately, he recklessly pressed the other
against the trunk of the tree and kissed him fiercely.

licked ZhouDu’s lips.

XiaYao away.

“Let’s, let’s go,” he said embarrassedly to XiaYao, bending down

halfway. t/n: In an attempt to hide his erection

“I was very skilled, wasn’t I?” ZhouDu moved his head slightly closer to
XiaYao and whispered the question into his ear. XiaYao blushed; he
mumbled and refused to answer. t/n: It seems like they both jacked each

“Hey! I knew it was you two!” Suddenly, someone forcefully clapped

a hand on each of their shoulders.

WangHao was currently standing behind them with a smirk on his face.

“What are you two doing? Out on a date?” WangHao said

teasingly, squeezing between the two of them and putting one arm around
ZhouDu, the other around XiaYao.

Hearing this, ZhouDu frowned. He suddenly smacked WangHao’s hand

from XiaYao’s shoulder, then with one hand he drew XiaYao into his arms.
Raising an eyebrow in defiance, he said to WangHao, “This is a date. What

Wrapped in ZhouDu’s embrace, XiaYao’s face paled instantly.

When ZhouDu saw that WangHao was incredulous, he suddenly

became angered. He said to WangHao, “The two of us are indeed dating

“Cough, cough. What did you say?” WangHao, who was laughing out

said, “Are you fucking kidding me? How could two men be dating?”

“How could two men not be dating?” ZhouDu frowned.

WangHao also couldn’t explain why two men couldn’t be dating. He opened
his mouth wanting to refute him, but only said one sentence, “Anyway, they
just can’t.”

XiaYao, white-faced, broke away from ZhouDu’s arm that was around
his shoulder. Taking a deep breath, he said, “I will go back first.”

ZhouDu only now discovered that XiaYao’s complexion was not very
good. He suddenly remembered that XiaYao had said they shouldn’t talk
about the relationship between them in front of other people.

“That…” ZhouDu moved close to XiaYao’s side, and at a loss of what to

do, he said, “XiaYao, don’t be angry. WangHao, he’s my childhood
friend. He won’t…”

WangHao stared wide-eyed at ZhouDu who was acting

submissively beside XiaYao, and only then did he really believe
ZhouDu’s words.

“What the fuck? The two of you really are dating.” WangHao
recovered from the shock, disbelief across his face.

The three of them were sitting in a quiet and dimly lit coffee shop. There
were very few people coming to drink coffee at this time. ZhouDu chose
a corner against the wall, and placed the small cake he had ordered in front
of XiaYao, who was beside him.

WangHao, who was sitting across from the two of them, looked at the

ZhouDu pretended like nothing had happened. While handing the milk to

WangHao: “…”

When XiaYao lowered his head to eat the small cake in front of him bit by
bit, ZhouDu finally turned around and looked directly at WangHao.

“I’m only telling you this because you’re my childhood friend. Now I’ve
indeed found a partner before you.” ZhouDu couldn’t help but start
showing off.

WangHao used to mock ZhouDu for being destined to play a lifelong

bachelor. After the two had had a fight about it, they agreed that whoever
found a partner first would be the father. Now, ZhouDu found a partner, and
the pitiful WangHao was still a single dog. Oh, no, he was a single dog who
had just gained a father.

“Fuck!” WangHao slammed his fist on the table ; then, pointing at ZhouDu,
he said, “Oh, so having a partner is amazing, huh? I’m going to fucking find
one tomorrow.”

ZhouDu snorted coldly and looked scornful.

WangHao still wanted to say something more when the phone in his
pocket started ringing. It turned out to be his parents calling him home after
they had finished their work.

“I’m leaving first.” WangHao pushed his chair back and stood up. Before
leaving, he didn’t forget to say to XiaYao, “XiaYao, ah, I’m not trying to criticize
you, but your taste is really not that great.”

“Piss off!” ZhouDu planned to use his foot to kick him again, but
WangHao quickly held onto the chair for support as he jumped, and then ran
out the door. Smiling like a dumbass, he made a hand heart at the two
people inside.

XiaYao finished eating the cake in front of him without saying a
223 Report
word, and drank up the milk as well. Only then did he lift his head and say to
ZhouDu, “Full.”

Like this, the first date of the two people ended in perfection.

After the weekend, the sports competition arrived as scheduled.

ZhouDu, as an athlete who had participated in the long-distance running
event in previous years, made it into the top three this year without incident.

“Not bad!” The sports representative put an arm around ZhouDu’s neck,
then he hammered a fist to his chest and said, “Our class is probably going
to have to rely on you to go out and compete.”

ZhouDu unscrewed the bottle of mineral water and asked doubtfully,

“Go out and compete for what?”

“You don’t know? Last time the sports department held a meeting, and
announced that the city decided to make the sports competition bigger this
time by putting together the top three athletes from each school for another

“Sounds stupid.” ZhouDu lifted his head and took a sip of mineral water.

“Hey, who knows, it is said that this time, there will be eight high schools
competing together. ZhouDu, do you have any confidence in getting a prize in

issue the awards you’ll be on TV, eh?”

“Too stupid. I won’t go.” ZhouDu refused without a second thought.

The sports representative shook his head and said, “This isn’t
something that you can reject just because you don’t want to go. It’s based on
ranking, you know?”
224 Report
ZhouDu couldn’t stand having the sports representative’s sweaty arm
around his neck anymore, so he reached out a hand and pushed him away,
then he said indifferently, “Then I’ll go.”

Right when he finished talking, XiaYao hastily ran past him. ZhouDu
subconsciously reached out a hand to pull him back and then asked, “Why are
you running?”

XiaYao was holding gauze and antiseptic in his hands. He answered

breathlessly, “Someone fell, so I just went to the infirmary to get some

The sports representative also came up to them and said,

“XiaYao’s logistics are quite good. For this city’s competition, every school
has to send some volunteers. Why not have XiaYao go? I really can’t go since I
bombed this monthly exam, and now I’m being forced to go to a tutor this

XiaYao said okay, then he ran away holding the gauze.

ZhouDu couldn’t help but be happy. If XiaYao went, didn’t that mean
they could be together again this weekend?

He cleared his throat and said to the sports representative, “The

competition really is for the top three to go to. Oh, forget it. Since I’m the only
top athlete in our class, I’ll go and let you guys gain face.”

When XiaYao ran to the side of the injured classmate, he had already
been helped to sit to the side and was currently surrounded by some
athletes who were resting.

XiaYao walked closer and saw that WangHao was also among those
people. He and WangHao made eye contact with each other; then,
embarrassed, they both stopped. WangHao currently had a sign on his
back that said 013, and was sitting there using a towel to fan his own face.

XiaYao half kneeled in front of the injured classmate. He took out
225 Report
the iodine and said to him, “I’ll clean your wound for a bit first. This might
hurt a little, so bear with it.”

The boy had probably just come down from the field, and there were still
a few drops of sweat on his forehead. He gave XiaYao a big smile and said,
“It’s nothing, just a bit of broken skin. Sorry to have troubled you.”

XiaYao also smiled at him. He took out a cotton swab and helped clean
the dirt near the wound little by little.

WangHao sat to the side, not batting an eyelid as he sized up the

interaction between XiaYao and the boy. Right now, XiaYao and
ZhouDu were in a relationship, and he had to look out for his bro.

After XiaYao cleaned the dirt from around the wound, he looked up and said
to the boy, “I’ll put on some medicine. It might hurt.”

The boy was wearing baggy athletic shorts. He lifted his leg slightly and said
to XiaYao, “Come on, I’m not squeamish.”

XiaYao poured some of the medicine on his wound.

“Ouch~” The boy grimaced in pain. XiaYao subconsciously blew on his

wound and said, “All right, I’ll just put on the gauze and it’ll be done.”

Off to the side, WangHao watched and he was shaken. He thought, this

can’t be, XiaYao can’t be hooked by this pretty boy in front of them.

He got up and walked next to XiaYao. Patting his shoulder, he said,

“I’ll put the gauze on him.”

“You will?” XiaYao asked doubtfully. “Do you know how?”

“What’s so hard about this?” WangHao pushed XiaYao aside and said to
him, “Aren’t you very busy? You might be needed somewhere
226 Report
else. Isn’t this just wrapping gauze? What’s not to know about doing it?”

XiaYao stood to the side, suspicious. The injured boy put his leg out again,
then laughed at WangHao and said, “Come, come, come. Even if you’re
unfamiliar with it at first, you’ll be used it soon enough. I’ll let you practice
your hand at it.”

WangHao gritted his teeth and his face darkened as he laughed. to them,
XiaYao watched for a while. Seeing that he really did seem to know what he
was doing, he then turned and prepared to leave.

He had just turned when from behind him, WangHao imitated XiaYao
and softly whispered to the boy, “Liu Anjie, this might hurt a little, so bear
with it.”

Liu Anjie said while laughing, “Hey, is this still WangHao? You didn’t
eat the wrong medicine today–Ow!!!”

WangHao slapped the gauze onto the wound with a loud smacking sound,
then he picked up the medicine and poured it on. After that, he pressed
down hard with his hand and said, “I say, you’re a big man. A little pain, and
you’re screaming like a pig being slaughtered. How shameful.” After he
finished speaking, he used his palm to press hard on the gauze, rubbing Liu
Anjie’s wound.

“Fuck your uncle, WangHao–“ Liu Anjie was in so much pain his face
was white. t/n: Saying fuck to someone’s family member makes it harsher I

After WangHao finished bandaging him, he walked back two steps,

admiring his masterpiece for a bit. With a proud look on his face, he said to
Liu Anjie, “I really am a fucking genius.” Before leaving, he gave Liu Anjie’s
wound yet another pat.

Liu Anjie gritted his teeth. Glaring at WangHao’s back, he said to him,
“Just wait you bastard, next time don’t fall into my hands.”

WangHao, hearing him say this, turned around and laughed out loud at

At 7 o’clock on Saturday morning, several large buses were parked at the

school gate. The early morning sunlight was currently passing between two
tall buildings, lazily spilling onto XiaYao’s body through the bus window.

The physical education teacher stood at the bus door, keeping track of
the names and classes of the students boarding the bus. XiaYao held his
school bag in his arms and looked at the deserted school gate in a daze.

The phone in the pocket of his school uniform began to vibrate with a
buzzing noise, and XiaYao was brought back to reality. He dug out the phone
from his pocket, and the ringtone drifted throughout the interior of the bus.


“Which bus are you in?”

XiaYao stuck his head out the window and looked around before
replying, “I’m in the second one.”

“See you soon.” After ZhouDu finished speaking, he hung up the phone.

Shortly after, XiaYao saw ZhouDu walking up the aisle from the front
door of the bus. The two people’s eyes met, and XiaYao couldn’t help but

There were many empty seats on the bus, but ZhouDu didn’t even
229 Report
spare them a glance; he went directly to XiaYao’s side and sat down.

“Have you had breakfast?” While saying that, he dug out a bottle of milk
from his school bag. After he unscrewed the cap, he handed it over to

XiaYao was stunned for a bit. ZhouDu put the milk in his hands and said,
“Quickly drink.”

After he had lifted his head and taken a sip, ZhouDu revealed a satisfied
smile. He pointed to the milky white circle around XiaYao’s lips and said, “Are
you a child?” He didn’t find it disgusting, and as he spoke, he directly used his
sleeve to wipe XiaYao’s mouth.

XiaYao blushed from his words. He forcefully pulled his hand out of
ZhouDu’s and whispered, “There are many people on the bus.”

ZhouDu grumbled in dissatisfaction, “I counted when I got on the bus a

moment ago; there’s only seven people.”

XiaYao straightened his back and sat upright, pretending he hadn’t heard

Shortly after, the phone in his pocket buzzed again. The only person
who knew XiaYao’s cell phone number was ZhouDu, so without even
having to think, he knew who was trying to reach him. He continued to drink
the milk, not planning to pick up the phone that was still buzzing in his

“Hey.” ZhouDu held his cell phone in his hand, then he elbowed XiaYao
and said, “Classmate, your cell phone is buzzing.”

XiaYao shot a glance at him, and very slowly dug out his phone. There were

three unread text messages on the screen.

XiaYao opened them and looked. As expected, they were from ZhouDu.
230 Report
“Is the milk good?”

“I really want to kiss you right now.” “Did

you miss me last night?”

Looking at the three texts made XiaYao’s face heat up. He

pretended not to know anything and stuffed the phone into the pocket of
his school uniform once again.

“Hey,” ZhouDu elbowed him again and said, “How can you not respond
to the other person’s messages? So rude. Hurry and respond.”

“ZhouDu, knock it off.” XiaYao twisted around in embarrassment. ZhouDu

continued to tap on his cell phone.

The phone in XiaYao’s pocket vibrated again. He sighed inwardly, then

dug out his cell phone once again.

“I missed you last night. When I was dreaming, I even dreamed about

“Guess what kind of dream I had?”

XiaYao tapped on the keyboard, and he paused for a quite a while before
he sent out his edited message.

The cell phone in ZhouDu’s palm lit up. He quickly opened it and looked,
and saw that XiaYao’s message had only two words—“Spring dream.” t/n:
This means erotic dream

ZhouDu’s face immediately turned red.

The bus was driving very slowly, and XiaYao had woken up very early.
They hadn’t been on the road for long, when he became
231 Report
drowsy and fell asleep.

ZhouDu was originally leaned back against the bus seat, dazedly
watching the back of XiaYao’s head bob up and down. When he saw that
XiaYao’s entire body was leaning toward the window, he quickly reached out a
hand to support XiaYao’s head and brought him to his side.

When XiaYao touched ZhouDu’s shoulder, he began to sleep on that


ZhouDu’s heart felt sweet and soft. He looked at XiaYao’s flushed cheeks
as he was sleeping, and couldn’t help but want to take a bite out of them.

However, in his mind he remembered what XiaYao had said; his

warning that they couldn’t reveal the relationship between the two of them in
front of strangers.

ZhouDu felt like a frenzied kitten had been caged inside his heart,
scratching him from the bottom of his feet and itching to the top of his head.

The bus parked at the entrance of the city stadium, and several large
buses were already parked here. XiaYao was still sleeping deeply, and
ZhouDu was reluctant to wake him up. However, almost all the people on the
bus had already gotten off. In the end, when there was only him and XiaYao
left, ZhouDu had no other choice but to wake up the XiaYao that was resting
on his shoulder.

XiaYao opened his eyes, about to apologize to ZhouDu for leaning on him
the whole time. to him, ZhouDu suddenly reached out a hand and pulled shut
the curtains in front of the bus window. Then, he pressed XiaYao against
the window and gave him a quick kiss.

“Are there still any people?!” The loud shouting from the bus driver startled
XiaYao and he abruptly shoved ZhouDu away. He turned
232 Report
pale with fright and said to ZhouDu, “Are you crazy?”

ZhouDu smiled and didn’t say anything. He pulled XiaYao up and raised
his voice to answer the driver’s words, “Coming, coming. We’re getting
off now. Overslept.”

After getting off the bus, XiaYao and ZhouDu were separated by the
teachers. ZhouDu, as an athlete, was taken away to the other athletes by
the physical education teacher, and they all left together. Meanwhile, XiaYao,
as a volunteer, was taken away by the other teachers who were in
charge of volunteers.

XiaYao followed the other volunteers into a conference room. A well-

dressed middle-aged woman was currently standing in the middle of the
room. She said to XiaYao and the others who had just entered, “Come
inside quickly; let us have a short meeting.”

The sports competition officially started at 9 o’clock. After the meeting,

XiaYao picked up his uniform and sign, and entered the field.

This time, he was responsible for the audience area. Mainly, to prevent
members of the audience from running from the bleachers onto the field.

He entered the stadium early and followed along the perimeter of the
stadium, checking whether or not the bleachers were properly roped off.
Suddenly, someone shouted unsurely from behind him, “XiaYao?”

XiaYao felt that he had heard this voice somewhere before, and when
he turned his head around to look, he discovered that the person behind
him was someone he had met not too long ago.


“Fang Zeyu.” Fang Zeyu said to XiaYao with a grin, “This is quite
233 Report
the coincidence.”

XiaYao smiled at him. Fang Zeyu walked over to him and said, “Are you a
volunteer here?”

XiaYao nodded.

Fang Zeyu went on to say, “I’m in the long-distance running group.

What about you?”

XiaYao didn’t turn his head to look at him, but only followed along the
rope, and as he walked he replied, “I’m responsible for the bleachers

Fang Zeyu said ‘oh’ and didn’t speak again.

The members of the audience were entering the stadium and

beginning to slowly fill up the bleachers, and XiaYao couldn’t help but quicken
his pace a bit. However, Fang Zeyu, as a sports student, could still
leisurely stroll along with him.

“Why did you toss away the rabbit last time?”

Fang Zeyu asked a question that XiaYao was unable to answer. He

definitely couldn’t tell Fang Zeyu that it was because of ZhouDu’s jealousy
that the rabbit was tossed away.

“I accidentally lost it,” XiaYao fibbed out of embarrassment.

“So it’s like that, and here I thought you just didn’t like rabbits.” “No, the rabbit

was very cute.” XiaYao forced himself to reply. He

was about to open his mouth and ask Fang Zeyu, whether he didn’t have to
get ready in advance, when two familiar figures suddenly appeared in the

WangHao had also discovered XiaYao. He pulled ZhangYang from the

entrance, and running quickly to the edge of the bleachers, he
234 Report
greeted XiaYao.

XiaYao also raised his head and smiled at them. He asked, “How come
you guys are here?”

“What are you talking about? Today is ZhouDu’s big day; of course I’d want
to come!”

“ZhouDu?” from next to them, Fang Zeyu suddenly asked. “Your little
brother is here too?”

Only now did WangHao notice the Fang Zeyu next to XiaYao. He looked
at him up and down, and his mind suddenly pulled the alarm.

This bastard looked like a poser, and WangHao didn’t know who he was.
Could it be that he was a friend of XiaYao’s from outside of school?

The more he thought about it, the more he thought that this wasn’t right.
Hearing this person’s words, it seemed that he even knew ZhouDu.
However, he had never heard ZhouDu talk about this person before.

Without batting an eyelid, WangHao smiled at Fang Zeyu and said, “What
school are you from, buddy? What’s it called? How do you know our dear

ZhangYang, hearing WangHao address XiaYao so intimately, couldn’t

help but frown.

Fang Zeyu squinted. He seemed to unintentionally reach out a hand to

put on XiaYao’s shoulder, as he said, “It’s a long story. Anyway, it can
be considered fate that I’m with YaoYao.”

YaoYao! He went so far as to call XiaYao ‘YaoYao’!

WangHao was so angry that he was burning with rage. He put on a fake
smile and said to Fang Zeyu, “I’ve never heard our dear YaoYao
235 Report
talk about you before. Hey, XiaYao, why are you frozen? Aren’t you a
volunteer? Go quickly, go quickly. Get to work.”

ZhangYang knew WangHao’s every move; every subtle facial

expression was as familiar to him as the back of his hand. Right now, just by
hearing the tone of WangHao’s words and seeing his facial expression, he
knew that WangHao was angry.

He was silent for a while, looking at XiaYao’s eyes with a hint of


XiaYao felt that the atmosphere was a bit strange. Moreover, Fang Zeyu
addressing him so intimately made him very uncomfortable. As a result, he hid
to the side and went on to say to Fang Zeyu, “I’ll get to work first. You should
also quickly go get ready.”

WangHao had already pulled ZhangYang back to their seats. Before

his butt even touched the seat, ZhouDu’s phone had already been called by

ZhangYang sat in his seat and looked at WangHao uncertainly. Only

now did WangHao remember what ZhouDu had said—not to let other people
know about the relationship between him and XiaYao.

He hung up the phone, and then pretending as if nothing had

happened, he said to ZhangYang, “I’m going to the bathroom; I’ll be right
back.” After he finished speaking, he didn’t even wait for ZhangYang’s
response. Covering the ringing cell phone in his pocket, he quickly ran
towards the bathroom.

ZhangYang stared at WangHao’s back and his eyes darkened.

At this time it was still early, so the bathroom was empty.

WangHao picked up the phone call from ZhouDu, and without even waiting
for the other person to speak, he hurriedly bellowed at him, “ZhouDu,
quickly come to the stadium; there’s a pretty boy here trying to hook

ZhouDu’s fingers suddenly tightened around the cell phone he was holding.
His voice fell and he said, “Who is it?”

“Ah, I don’t know what his name is. You didn’t see him? Just a while ago he
even went so far as to call XiaYao ‘YaoYao’ in front of my face! The two
of them seem close. He’s from a different school, is quite tall, and he has
short hair.”

ZhouDu gritted his teeth in anger and said to WangHao, “I know who it is
now. That bastard; how has he still not had enough of being pummeled by
me?!” After he finished speaking, he angrily hung up the phone.

WangHao was only left to return to the bleachers in confusion.

Just as ZhouDu was ready to storm into the stadium in a huff, the physical
education teacher appeared.

“Gather around, we’re about to enter the field.” The teacher blew on his
whistle and clapped his hands a few times in front of his students. “Give
all your phones and personal belongings to me, and come by after the
competition to pick it up.”

ZhouDu reluctantly handed over his phone.

After a group of people entered the field, ZhouDu left with other
members of the track and field team.

The sequence of the events was determined by sortition. ZhouDu scanned

around the whole stadium and didn’t find XiaYao; instead, he discovered
Fang Zeyu situated not far from himself.

Fang Zeyu was wearing a uniform for the sports competition, and joked
around with his teammates.

ZhouDu gave him a fierce glare.

Fang Zeyu originally stood with the back of his head toward
ZhouDu. Then, as if he suddenly felt something, he turned his head and
glanced at ZhouDu.

The second their eyes met, sparks flew.

Fang Zeyu gave ZhouDu a look of disdain, then turned his head around
and chatted on with his teammates.
238 Report
With his jaw clenched and lips pursed, ZhouDu also turned away.

The atmosphere of the competition quickly became heated. XiaYao stood

before the bleachers, tiptoeing and stretching his neck in order to get a better
look at the long-distance runners. Unfortunately, it was too far away; the
only thing that could be made out were the athletes dressed in uniforms of
varying colours.

The lingering ardor from what was left of the Olympic Games hyped
the spectators for the competition even more. Although the competition this
time was only a joint sports event organized by the eight schools, quite a
number of people showed up. From time to time, there would be waves of
encouragements and cries of support from the crowds.

ZhouDu was initially going to take it easy for this competition, but that was
before he saw Fang Zeyu here. Right then, he felt his fighting spirit
stirring, thinking that later, he’d put Fang Zeyu in his place.

When the starter pistol went off, ZhouDu inhaled deeply and pressed
forward vehemently with his long legs. Fang Zeyu was in the third lane and
ZhouDu was in the fifth. The runners between the two had already been left
behind. ZhouDu knew that long-distance running was only a matter of
endurance. He adjusted his breath while sizing Fang ZeYu up out of the
corner of his eye.

Once XiaYao had learned that the long-distance race had began, his
heart leapt. He stared at the track ahead, and thought that he must cheer
ZhouDu on when he passes by.

Eyeing the runners as they rapidly approached, XiaYao held his breath.
When he caught sight of ZhouDu’s familiar silhouette, he suddenly
shouted along with the crowd, “Come on! Go!”

Unexpectedly, Fang Zeyu turned to look at XiaYao, flashed him a smile

and replied, “Thank you.”
239 Report
ZhouDu, “…” How can one be so shameless!

If it weren’t for the race in progress, ZhouDu would definitely have let this
thick-skinned bastard have it.

After the race had come to an end, ZhouDu entered the lounge. Without
getting a moment of rest, he went directly next door to where Fang
Zeyu’s school was staying.

The participants Fang Zeyu’s school sent to take part in the

competition this time were all sports specialties students. The second ZhouDu
pushed in the door, everyone’s gaze in the room landed on him.

Without warning, ZhouDu raised his fist and went straight for Fang Zeyu’s
face. Fang Zeyu had learned his lesson last time, and so he dodged with
his head. The classmate who stood by his side gave ZhouDu a shove
and said in a menacing tone, “You’ve got some nerve to come here and
start a fight, kid.”

“Get lost.” ZhouDu’s eyes were cold.

Fang Zeyu pushed past his classmate and stood opposite of

ZhouDu. “You’re looking for a fight, are you?”

ZhouDu looked at him coldly.

Fang Zeyu challenged ZhouDu as he stepped outside, “If a fight’s what

you want, follow me.”

After the race, XiaYao had returned to the volunteer’s lounge, where
he heard the two girls next door speaking, “Did you hear? Two handsome
guys were just found in the back fighting.”

“A fight? Which school’s?”

“The word is that one of them is from A High, I heard that their teachers
are furious, haha.”
240 Report
XiaYao’s fingers tightened around his water bottle; he quickly fished
out his cell phone and dialed ZhouDu.

The ringback tone continued for a long while, but nobody picked up.
XiaYao stood up, feeling uneasy. He managed to finish all his work in the
morning, now he was just waiting for ZhouDu to show up and have lunch

He packed his things, notified the teacher that he was leaving, and left the

As soon as he had stepped out, he was stopped by WangHao.

“Let’s go, I’m taking you to lunch,” WangHao said while eagerly pulling
XiaYao along.

“Where’s ZhouDu?” XiaYao looked puzzled. “I heard a moment ago that a

fight had broken out, it was not him, was it?”

“Uh…” WangHao scratched his head, “Let’s get lunch first, we’ll talk
while we eat.”

They found a restaurant nearby, and that’s when XiaYao found out that
ZhouDu got taken away by the teacher.

“It may be serious this time, I heard that many people saw it. There
were onlookers from every school. ZhouDu’s done for this time, hahaha.”
WangHao chortled away heartlessly. XiaYao’s brows knitted.

“Do you know who he was fighting with?”

WangHao shot XiaYao a glance and replied, “None other than that kid who
stood next to you this morning.”

“Fang Zeyu?” XiaYao was even more puzzled. He remembered that

ZhouDu and Fang Zeyu didn’t seem like they didn’t get along,
241 Report
XiaYao remembered all of a sudden that ZhouDu had said, “I know that it’s
wrong to hit people, but I refuse to apologize.” He realized now that the guy
ZhouDu had beaten up was probably Fang Zeyu.

‘No way,’ XiaYao thought. ‘Surely, he can’t still be mad that Fang Zeyu
once gave me a rabbit?’

“Where’s ZhouDu now?”

WangHao replied with his mouth stuffed, “Who knows? Probably still with
the teacher. He called me just now, to tell me to bring you to lunch and go
directly after to the meeting location. There’s no need to wait for him.”

ZhangYang poured WangHao a glass of tea and told him, “Talk after
you finish eating.”

WangHao lowered his head, shoved some rice into his mouth and guzzled
down a mouthful of tea. He consoled XiaYao. “It’s not a big deal, it’s just a
fight. In the worst case, he’ll just need to apologize.”

XiaYao finished the rest of his meal lost in thought. After lunch, he went to
the meeting location and waited for the afternoon events to end so he could
to return to his school with the other students.

On Monday’s morning exercise assembly, ZhouDu stood on the podium

with an apology letter in his hand.

He glanced at the crowd, and nonchalantly shook the letter open with his

The First Lady glared at him while gnashing his teeth. ZhouDu
grabbed the microphone. “Testing, testing.” , he greeted his fellow students,
“Hi everyone, I’m ZhouDu.”

There were quite a few people who knew ZhouDu in the school. A
242 Report
burst of cheering came from below, and ZhouDu’s gaze settled on XiaYao.
The two gazed at one another across the crowd.

“Quit stalling and read!” The First Lady urged from the side. ZhouDu

cleared his throat, looked at the letter and began to read.

The general idea was that one shouldn’t start trouble when
representing their school in a public setting, because they’d be putting
the school in a bad light.

Once he concluded the letter, the nice guys in the audience took it upon
themselves to get the applause going.

The principal let out a cough and took a hold of the microphone in
ZhouDu’s hand. He started out only criticizing ZhouDu, but slowly directed
his words to the rest of the school.

ZhouDu stood by the principal, but his eyes stayed on XiaYao.

After the warm-up, the First Lady seized ZhouDu and gave him an earful
before she let him go.

WangHao squatted by the road, waiting for ZhouDu. Seeing that ZhouDu
got set free, he asked gloatingly, “How about it? Did it feel swell to have the
entire school’s eyes on you?”

ZhouDu rolled his eyes at him and replied, “I don’t know, why don’t you try it
for yourself?”

WangHao placed his arm around his neck and teased, “Which school
does that Fang Zeyu kid go to? Let’s go pay him a visit this weekend.”

“Not interested.” ZhouDu pushed him aside and headed for the

After school, ZhouDu followed behind XiaYao, wanting to send him
243 Report
home, but he was intercepted halfway by Jiang Shiwen.

“We have to settle the whole New Year’s thing today no matter what.”
Jiang Shiwen began dragging ZhouDu off in the direction of her family’s
bubble tea shop.

XiaYao was in a jealous fury, but with a deadpan, he continued on towards

his home.

When ZhouDu was just about to tell him to wait, Jiang Shiwen, who was next
to him, interjected with, “Oh yeah, why haven’t you told me about you and
your babe lately? Did you score?”

The words ZhouDu originally intended to call out to XiaYao got stuck in
his throat. He answered perfunctorily, “Not yet, but I already have an idea. Are
both of them gonna be here yet?”

“They’re coming.” Jiang Shiwen understood that ZhouDu meant that he

had agreed to discuss the New Year’s plans with her. With her hands
pulling him along, she quickened her pace on the way towards her
family’s bubble tea shop.

As WangHao emerged from the building, he immediately spotted ZhouDu

walking alongside Jiang Shiwen. He surveyed around for XiaYao, only to
discover that he had crossed the road on his own.

‘Holy crap!!’ WangHao cursed in his head. He sprinted to ZhouDu’s side and
with his arm around ZhouDu’s neck, he pulled him away from Jiang

“I was looking everywhere for you, but look at you, here you are hooking
up with a babe.” He tightened his arm hooking ZhouDu’s neck, nearly
cutting off his oxygen supply.

ZhouDu gave WangHao a shove and tried to kick his ass. Jiang
Shiwen hauled ZhouDu away. She turned her head and looked at
WangHao, “Lend me your ZhouDu for today. Don’t be jealous, be a good
boy and go home~”

WangHao glared at their backs, pondered for a moment, and took off in the
direction of XiaYao.

ZhangYang was asked to stay after school by the teacher right before
classes ended, so he was naturally slower than WangHao. The two had
originally planned to meet at the school gate, and go to ZhangYang’s
place for tutoring. When he walked out of school gate, he was just in time to
see WangHao’s figure chasing after XiaYao.

He stood there on the spot, dazed for a moment. After quite some time, he
lowered his head with a bitter smile. Then he hailed a cab and got in.

WangHao caught up to Xia Yao, and tapped him on the shoulder.

“Hey, so you live around here, huh?”

XiaYao had a lot on his mind, so when WangHao tapped on him out of
nowhere, he almost had to stifle a cry of surprise.

“Oh, sorry, sorry.” WangHao hastily apologized and continued,

“Scared you? Hey, I’m sorry, I can be careless sometimes.” “Don’t

worry.” XiaYao lowered his head in silence.

WangHao scratched his head, he thought for a minute and said, “That
was Jiang Shiwen. Although the school is spreading rumors about those
two, I can personally assure you that he doesn’t think of her like that! Let me
let you in on a secret, I remembered when ZhouDu had just joined the
student council in freshman year, Jiang Shiwen confessed to him. He
immediately turned her down then and there. It’s been two years now, and
ZhouDu has little contact with her outside of school.”

“WangHao,” XiaYao turned his head and deliberately interrupted

WangHao. “ZhouDu is lucky to have a childhood friend like you.”

WangHao scratched his head bashfully.
245 Report
XiaYao went on to say, “I know that there’s nothing between ZhouDu
and Jiang Shiwen. I just, I feel a little bit dismayed. He and I as a couple can
never appear blatantly in public.” XiaYao cast his eyes down and said in a
dejected voice, “I can’t even mess around brazenly as you can with him.”

WangHao opened and shut his mouth; he didn’t know how to comfort
XiaYao. When they were about to enter the alley, WangHao halted to a
complete stop and proclaimed, “It’s fine, XiaYao. Even if the entirety of

XiaYao’s nose twitched and eyes grew reddish. He gave WangHao a

October had yet to pass, but the summer heat had gradually
dissipated. The early autumn sunshine lazily speckled the classroom like a
young man who had fallen out of infatuation and into real love.

With his back straightened, XiaYao lowered his head and

concentrated on taking notes. Beside him, Chubby looked down and played
with his phone under the desk.

Just as XiaYao glanced at Chubby, Chubby looked up at him.

“XiaYao.” Chubby used his book as cover, came closer to XiaYao and
whispered, “You’re chums with ZhouDu, right?”

Keeping his countenance, XiaYao looked at Chubby and didn’t reply.

The teacher finished his notes on the blackboard and turned his head.
He set the lesson plan down on the podium and let out a cough.

That startled Chubby to immediately sit upright.

After class, XiaYao packed his books and asked Chubby slowly,
“Why did you ask me that?”

Resting his chin on one hand, Chubby replied, “I heard that Jiang
Shiwen’s birthday is coming up.”

XiaYao’s expression remained unchanged, but his movements slowed

down. He pretended to ask casually, “Oh, and what does her
247 Report
birthday have to do with ZhouDu?”

“Eh, don’t you know? Jiang Shiwen invites friends over to celebrate her
birthday every year. ZhouDu is on such good terms with her, he’ll definitely be
invited. Since you and ZhouDu seem to be pals, do you think you can ask
ZhouDu if he can let us tag along?”

XiaYao’s face dimmed and said in a soft tone, “Why would we go?”

Chubby lay himself down on the desk and sighed, “I want to attend her
birthday party just once; this is probably my last shot in high school.”

XiaYao looked at Chubby’s forlorn side profile and could not help but feel
a hint of compassion. The hopelessness of unrequited love was a feeling
he could definitely relate to.

“That…” XiaYao hesitated for a bit and said, “I can ask for you, but I can’t
guarantee anything.”

“Really?” Chubby’s eyes immediately lit up. He exclaimed, “I’m counting

on you, XiaYao!”

Once ZhouDu had learned that XiaYao went home alone every day, he
hadn’t been willing to take no for an answer in sending him home.

In the beginning, ZhouDu would send XiaYao to the front of his

apartment complex and then leave. Slowly, that progressed into him sending
XiaYao to his doorstep, and then finally, he wouldn’t leave until he had
delivered XiaYao into his apartment. Not to mention, he would find an excuse
to stay, “I’ve gone a long way, I’m exhausted. I could use a moment’s rest on
your sofa.”

When XiaYao started to let him into the apartment, ZhouDu would honestly
just sit for a bit and leave. But later on, it progressed into him losing all
sense of shame; he forcefully kissed XiaYao while pinning him in place.
And then finally, he had attempted to pull
248 Report
XiaYao’s pants off. That was why XiaYao refused to let him in even if his life
depended on it.

XiaYao wasn’t afraid of what ZhouDu would do to him, but he was worried
of what he would do to ZhouDu if he had lost control.

Both of them had just walked into the alley, and XiaYao mentioned as
casually as possible, “They say that Jiang Shiwen’s birthday is coming

ZhouDu was thinking up of an excuse to make XiaYao let him in again,

so when XiaYao brought that up out of nowhere, it took him a moment to

“Ah? I don’t know, why do you care what she’s doing for her

XiaYao stared down awkwardly at his toes. “I heard that she would invite
some friends to celebrate at her place?”

“Why are you asking about this?” ZhouDu looked at XiaYao with
suspicion and said, “I’m telling you, if she invited you, you’re not allowed
to go.”

XiaYao shook his head and explained, “No, I’m asking because I want to
know if you can bring Chubby and me along if she invites you?”

ZhouDu was even more confused.

“Why would you two want to attend her party anyway?”

XiaYao sighed in his head and told ZhouDu the truth, ”It’s Chubby, he wants
to attend Jiang Shiwen’s birthday party at least once before high school ends.
He seems to have a thing for her.”

After hearing XiaYao’s explanation, ZhouDu asked perplexedly,

“What do you mean, a ‘thing’?”
249 Report

XiaYao sighed again in his head and continued, “He likes Jiang

XiaYao’s response left ZhouDu dazed for a moment; then, he

furrowed his brows.

“He should just tell her if he likes her, why wait for her birthday?”

“Probably because he fears rejection and thinks that she’s out of his
league,” XiaYao uttered slowly, his gaze somewhere in the distance.

ZhouDu took note of his reaction and felt uncomfortable for some odd
reason. He sighed and said, “Fine, I’ll ask Jiang Shiwen when the time

The two walked and chatted, and soon they had arrived at XiaYao’s
apartment complex.

“Okay, you should hurry home.” XiaYao stopped and waved at ZhouDu,
“See you tomorrow.”

“But, I haven’t delivered you to your doorstep yet.”

“It’s fine.” XiaYao took a step back and said, “It’s best if you go home.”

“Okay.” ZhouDu lowered his head, reluctantly turned and left.

Chubby couldn’t believe XiaYao had actually convinced ZhouDu to take

him to Jiang Shiwen’s birthday party. After the constant reassurances
from XiaYao, he was thrilled enough to hug him and give him a big kiss.

Fortunately, XiaYao was agile enough to dodge Chubby’s incoming bear

hug. Otherwise, ZhouDu behind him would throw a jealous fit
250 Report
and give Chubby trouble.

Jiang Shiwen’s birthday happened to be on the weekend. Her father

was on a business trip in another city. It was said that it would be another
three years before he’d transfer back. As a result, she only lived with her
mother, who was a physician.

Jiang Shiwen’s mother knew that her daughter would invite people over for
her birthday. Her hospital had always been busy, so she was glad there was
someone keeping her daughter company. She felt like that they’d have more
fun without her in the way, too.

Therefore, on Saturday afternoon, after her lunch, Jiang Shiwen’s mom

said to her daughter, “I’m working a night shift tonight. You guys have fun,
but don’t stay up too late, okay? Also, remember to tidy up after, I don’t
want to come home from the hospital in the morning to a mess.”

“Mom, I know~” Jiang Shiwen held her mom affectionately. When her
mother left, she promptly pulled out her cell phone and sent a group

“Comrades! You may now enter the village!”

The first wave of people who showed up were Jiang Shiwen’s closest
friends. They pushed the coffee table in the living room to the side and
decorated the living room with colored star lights.

The birthday cake was ordered in advance and was to be delivered at 5 PM.

Jiang Shiwen pulled out her spare boom box and took out the
microphones, which she then started tuning.

Around four o’clock in the afternoon, other people began to ring Jiang
Shiwen’s doorbell, coming with gifts.

When ZhouDu arrived with XiaYao and Chubby, the party crowd
251 Report
had gotten rowdy. Fortunately, the sound insulation of the room was excellent.
They waited outside the door and didn’t hear a thing, but when the door
opened, a loud scream followed by shouts of a girl filled their ear drums.

“Oh my god, guys! Let’s give it up for our school’s handsomest Oppa!”
The door was flung open by a girl with a round face, she had a pair of bunny
ears on her head. She was the first one that began to applaud.

ZhouDu shoved the gift into her arms and interrupted her cheering and
applause. XiaYao didn’t know the majority of the people in the room, so he
simply stood alongside Chubby and watched them surround ZhouDu.

“You guys should give him a break.” Jiang Shiwen was

exceptionally beautiful today. Although autumn had arrived, she was dressed
in a knee-high skirt and wore her hair in a ponytail, which gave her an
immaculate look.

“XiaYao, Guo Dongdong, welcome to my birthday party.” Jiang Shiwen

stood in front of them and gave them a smile.

XiaYao quickly handed over the gift in his hand. Chubby hadn’t heard
his real name uttered in a long time, and because it was the first time hd’s
come this close to Jiang Shiwen, he was so nervous he couldn’t speak.

“Come, have fun.” Jiang Shiwen seemed to notice his nervousness and
took him by the arm, bringing him into the group of people dancing.

There weren’t many people in the house; including XiaYao’s gang, there
were fewer than ten people. Luckily, Jiang Shiwen’s living room was roomy, so
even with that many people standing; it didn’t feel too crowded.
252 Report
The rather reserved Chubby was surrounded by Jiang Shiwen’s female
friends who held decorations in their hands; they asked him to help.

Chubby had something to keep him occupied and found himself

gradually relaxing. ZhouDu brought XiaYao to the sofa and sat down with

“ZhouDu, come give me a hand!” Jiang Shiwen’s voice came from the

ZhouDu looked at XiaYao, and XiaYao made room for him to exit by
scooting to the side.

Jiang Shiwen yelled for him again, and ZhouDu had to respond,

After he entered the kitchen, Jiang Shiwen whispered to him, “You told me
you were bringing your ‘friends’, I thought you meant your girlfriend, not
two dudes.”

“Oh, I thought you knew.”

Jiang Shiwen stole a glance at Chubby outside and said, “I know what he
means, but XiaYao? He can’t possibly have a crush on me as well?”

“No,” ZhouDu denied that straight away.

Jiang Shiwen was like a sly fox; she narrowed her eyes and said,
“ZhouDu, you’re keeping something from me.”

ZhouDu’s guiltily swept a look at XiaYao that sat outside, and evaded
the question, “Why did you call me in here?”

“I thought you were going after a girl. I didn’t see this coming,
253 Report
ZhouDu. Tsk, tsk.” Jiang Shiwen wasn’t planning to let him off the hook.

That’s when ZhouDu’s face grew stern. He glanced at the noisy crowd
outside, then went over to the kitchen door and pushed it shut.

“Don’t you dare tell anyone or else…”

“Or else what? Tsk, tsk, ZhouDu, ZhouDu, is that pretty head of yours
only an accessory? XiaYao is sitting outside, he’s probably be keeping an
eye on us in the kitchen. But look at you, slamming the door shut, what for?
Out of fear that he would misunderstand?”

ZhouDu hadn’t thought that much. His first instinct was to make sure that
nobody would overhear them, otherwise XiaYao would blame himself.

Jiang Shiwen looked at the dumbstruck ZhouDu, gloatingly arched her

brows and said, “Ever since I was brutally rejected by you all those years
ago, I’ve been waiting and longed to see what kind of girl you would fall for,
ZhouDu. I never expected this, hahaha. For real, ZhouDu, you got me. You
win, hahaha.”

Jiang Shiwen was laughing her head off as she left the kitchen. With a look of

resignation across his face, ZhouDu followed Jiang

Shiwen outside.

Not long after they had left the kitchen, the birthday cake was
delivered. All the lights in the room were turned off except for the glow
emitting from the decorative stars.

In the dark, someone began singing ‘Happy Birthday’. XiaYao stood next to
ZhouDu; suddenly, his hand was grasped firmly.

He turned to look at ZhouDu’s profile, while ZhouDu was looking along

with everyone else on Jiang Shiwen, who was making her wish. XiaYao used
his fingertip to tickle the palm of ZhouDu’s hand and saw the corners of his
mouth turn up.

Once the candles were blown out, someone was just about to reach
for the lightswitch, when in the dark, a boy interrupted, “Wait.” He continued,
“Today is our beautiful Jiang Shiwen’s birthday, I want to take a bit of time
on this special day to tell her a few words. Everyone, please quiet

The boy speaking was in the same class as Jiang Shiwen; everyone around
them shushed one another while sharing a meaningful look. Chubby stood
next to XiaYao with his head hung low.

“Cough, cough.” The boy was rangy in appearance. He tested the

microphone he had gotten a hold of and said, “I’ve had the honor of being
my Jiang Shiwen’s classmate for nearly three years. I remember
being attracted to her the moment I first set eyes on her as a freshman. I
made eyes at her both overt and covertly to the point they were almost
twitching. However, despite all of my efforts, I was completely ignored by my
Shiwen here.”

“Who‘s ‘yours’, how cheeky of you!” one of Jiang Shiwen’s girl
255 Report
friends poked fun at the boy.

“Okay, okay, my bad, Jiang Shiwen belongs to everyone,” the boy gave a
quick reply and though he got interrupted, he wasn’t angry in the least. Still
with a cheeky grin from ear to ear, he continued, “Three years, it’s not
long nor it is too short, but I put all my eggs in one basket called Jiang
Shiwen. It’s already our junior year; I’m thinking if I don’t confess,
someone will come along and swoop up a catch like her in no time. So, in
honor of the day that she was brought into the world, here goes

“Jiang Shiwen! I like you, I really like you! Can you give me a

The crowd began to cheer as the blood drained from Chubby’s face.
XiaYao looked at him sympathetically.

“Settle down, settle down, everyone,” Jiang Shiwen cracked a smile and
interrupted her screaming friends.

“Hey, today’s supposed to be about me yet you’re stealing my

thunder.” Jiang Shiwen shook her head and sighed. She was well aware
of her popularity amongst the boys. She knew for a fact that there were two
or three secret admirers of hers among the people who came today.

Jiang Shiwen was a girl with a daring spirit. That meant, if she fell for a
person, she’d for sure confess to them. She wouldn’t regret her decision even
if it were to end in rejection. However, this also meant that if she had no
feelings for someone, she wouldn’t hesitate to shoot them down. It was
beneath her to leave them hanging for the purpose of using them as a

As for the rest who crushed on her, Jiang Shiwen was at the end of her
rope. She couldn’t just walk up to them and say exasperating things like,
“Hey, stop liking me”.
256 Report
Jiang Shiwen had actually already been going out with the boy who
confessed to her, it was no secret to all of her girl friends. As for why the boy
chose to make a public confession at the party, it was because he
wanted to tell those who harboured feelings for Jiang Shiwen that she
was no longer on the market.

Sure enough, after Jiang Shiwen finished speaking, she sauntered over to
the boy, tiptoed and stroked his head, “Because you’ve made me very satisfied
with your performance today, I guess I’ll give you a chance.”

The boy lifted her off her feet and pulled her in for an embrace. The

crowd to the side urged, “Kiss! Kiss!”

Just when the boy leaned in for the kiss, Jiang Shiwen pushed his face
away with her palm, “I hardly managed to get my makeup on for today. If you
dare kiss me, you’re dead meat.”

The boy wasn’t upset; instead, he gazed at Jiang Shiwen adoringly and
murmured, “Alright, alright, as you wish.”

“Ugh~” Someone in the crowd let out a groan of disgust in the face of their
public display of affection.

“Okay, let’s turn the lights on,” the boy said. He, however, did not expect
Jiang Shiwen to interrupt him, “Keep the lights off! Why don’t we just play a
game in the dark?”

She jumped onto the sofa and continued talking to the people below,
“After our junior year, all of us sort of count as adults.” She pointed to the
alcohol on the side and said, “We’re having too much fun today to not drink.
But, only drinking is boring. Since there’s so many of us, let’s play Truth or
Dare. I can’t wait to find out all your little secrets~”

The lot seemed to be in high spirits and promptly agreed get

257 Report
Jiang Shiwen got off the sofa with a jump, plopped down on the floor and
gestured, “Come sit down, all of you.” Everyone sat down in a circle.

Jiang Shiwen picked up a bottle of beer by her side, removed the cap with
her teeth, and gulped down all of its contents.

“That hit the spot!” She placed the empty beer bottle on the floor with the
lip pointing to her. “I’ll spin the bottle; whoever the bottle points to once it
stops will have to choose either truth or dare.”

As the people witnessed Jiang Shiwen’s uninhibited exuberance, they

thought it wouldn’t be right if they held anything back, so they eagerly stared
at the bottle in her hand and awaited the game to start.

“Okay, I’m gonna spin it.” With a flick of her finger, the beer bottle began to
go around. After a few seconds, the bottle pointed to her once again.

Everyone started to laugh, Jiang Shiwen knitted her good-looking brows

and said, “Okay, I’ll begin. You guys ask away.”

“I’ll ask! I’ll ask!” Jiang Shiwen’s boyfriend eagerly raised his hand. The
others didn’t find it right to fight him over it so they let him have at it.

The boy gave ZhouDu a glance, and asked Jiang Shiwen with a face of
anticipation, “Who do you find more attractive, ZhouDu or me?”

Jiang Shiwen stared at her goofball of a boyfriend and sighed, “Are you
asking to be humiliated? Do I even need to say it?”

“Oh.” Her boyfriend’s head hung low while the others around him roared
with laughter.

Jiang Shiwen continued to spin the bottle. After a few rounds, she said,
“What’s with all your questions, it’s all child’s play. How about
258 Report
this, I’ll be the one to ask whoever the next person is.”

Hearing no objection, Jiang Shiwen resumed to spin the beer bottle.

After a few rotations, it pointed to ZhouDu.

“Ho, ho.” Jiang Shiwen rubbed her hand together and eyed ZhouDu with a
wicked smile, “So you’ve finally fallen into my hands.”

ZhouDu sat upright and looked at Jiang Shiwen with disdain.

Jiang Shiwen pondered for a few moments with her palm on her cheek.
With an impish grin across her face, she asked, “ZhouDu, I want to know
who you jacked off to the very last time.”

ZhouDu’s face burned up. He glowered at Jiang Shiwen, “What in the hell
kind of question is that! I refuse to answer.”

“Yo~” A boy teased, “What’s wrong with telling us, ZhouDu? Don’t tell me it
was the First Lady! Hahaha.”

“Piss off!” ZhouDu snapped angrily at the boy.

“Fine, fine.” Jiang Shiwen stepped in to end the meaningless squabble

between the two. “If you choose not to answer this question, then you
must perform a dare.”

ZhouDu kept a wary eye on Jiang Shiwen whereas she sneaked a look at

“How about this, ZhouDu, you pick one person among the people present
to do push-ups.” Jiang Shiwen then clarified, “The person you pick will lie
beneath you while you complete as many push ups as you’re physically
capable of. What do you all say?”

“Woo! Yeah! Sounds good!” A person began to cheer rousing the crowd.

ZhouDu glared daggers at Jiang Shiwen. Jiang Shiwen pressed on,
259 Report
“Step on it. If you don’t choose, I’ll help you. I’m sure my girl friends here will
appreciate it.”

ZhouDu was good-looking and the object of many of his

schoolmates’ affection. Even Jiang Shiwen herself had once confessed
to him.

“I got it.” ZhouDu bit out hastily for fear that Jiang Shiwen was really
going to go through with it.

As his eyes darted guilty to and fro in the direction of XiaYao, XiaYao
grew so nervous that his hands had started to sweat.

“He will do,” ZhouDu pointed to XiaYao and whispered.

Seeing that her little plan proved successful, Jiang Shiwen said
excitedly to ZhouDu, “Then you may start, but ZhouDu, don’t say that you
can’t do anymore after one push up. After all, if you can’t even do push ups,
how can you be happy in the future? Am I right, guys?”

The boys gave ZhouDu a look of ‘we understand’.

ZhouDu’s heart pounded against his chest, he looked at XiaYao and

stumbled over his words, “You, you go lie down.”

Blood rushed to XiaYao’s face at once. He shifted backwards a few inches,

but it didn’t seem like he had any intention to lie down.

“Eh? Looks like XiaYao doesn’t want to.” Jiang Shiwen sighed, “Then
we’ll have to look for someone who’s willing.” She glanced at her girl friends.

“He is willing!” ZhouDu hurriedly interrupted Jiang Shiwen. He grabbed

XiaYao by the arm and asked, “You’re willing, right?”

XiaYao naturally didn’t want ZhouDu doing this with anybody else. He was
aware that if he refused to this very second, Jiang Shiwen
260 Report
wouldn’t hesitate in the slightest to put someone under ZhouDu.

He took in ZhouDu’s face of anticipation and finally, he acquiesced and lay

on the floor with a flushed face.

XiaYao had sat farther out in the corner. When he lay down, his whole
body was enveloped by the darkness.

ZhouDu pressed himself onto XiaYao’s body.

The girls cried out in surprise and covered their faces while staring
excitedly at the two on the floor.

ZhouDu’s hands were on both sides of XiaYao’s neck, and XiaYao

nervously fixated on ZhouDu’s chest, not daring to look him in the eye.

“Come on, let’s get started,” Jiang Shiwen ordered.

ZhouDu bent his arms and finished the first push up.

XiaYao couldn’t help but hold his breath everytime ZhouDu’s face came
near. ZhouDu looked at XiaYao who lay beneath him, and his heart nearly
leapt out of his throat.

After a dozens of push ups, ZhouDu’s arms gradually lost strength. After all,
preventing himself from touching XiaYao while doing the push ups only
served to make the already straining task more strenuous.

“ZhouDu, are you tired already?” Jiang Shiwen teased


ZhouDu gritted his teeth and did several more consecutive push ups.

“ZhouDu sure has good stamina,” a girl laughed and remarked. ZhouDu

ignored them. After doing a dozen more push ups, he
261 Report
stopped in the plank position.

“Is that enough?” he turned his head and asked.

Jiang Shiwen said, “If you admit that you can’t do anymore then you can

whispered, “It’s fine, get up.”

“See,” Jiang Shiwen spitted out the sunflower seed hull in her mouth

ZhouDu gritted his teeth and scowled at Jiang Shiwen. He

would never admit defeat in front of XiaYao!!

Even after they had departed from Jiang Shiwen’s place, XiaYao still
couldn’t bring himself to look ZhouDu in the eye.

Just a moment ago, as ZhouDu finished up the last push-up, he

suddenly, either deliberately or perhaps genuinely tuckered out, and just lay
himself flat on top of XiaYao.

XiaYao was just about to help him up, when ZhouDu unexpectedly pecked
him on the neck, scaring XiaYao stiff. With that many pairs of eyes on them,
XiaYao felt both nervous and exhilarated.

The gathering at Jiang Shiwen’s carried on with only her little girl friends
and boyfriend remaining. Since ZhouDu never wanted to attend from the
get-go, he made something up and copped out of there with XiaYao as
soon as he saw the chance.

XiaYao thought that Jiang Shiwen gave him a rather meaningful look
before he left, so he touched ZhouDu lightly on the arm and asked, “Um,
Jiang Shiwen, she… Does she suspect us?”

Because he found that XiaYao seemed to care greatly about other people’s
opinion of them, ZhouDu didn’t dare give XiaYao a straight answer to that
question, let alone confess that Jiang Shiwen already knew what could be
known about their relationship.

“Are you hungry? Let’s go for a late night snack.”

XiaYao shook his head, “It’s late, we should get home. Oh yeah, are you
free tomorrow?”

ZhouDu paused for a moment and said, “What’s up? I may be

accompanying my mom to the mall tomorrow.”
263 Report
ZhouDu’s mother’s postpartum confinement had ended and she planned
to find a time for the whole family to invite XiaYao’s family over for dinner.
Mrs. Zhou thought that a dinner party was long overdue, but due to her
confinement, she hadn’t gotten around to it. Now that she was no longer in
confinement, she planned to bring her son to the mall in order to pick out a
gift for XiaYao.

After all, they were peers, so ZhouDu’s mother reached the

conclusion that she could use her son’s opinion.

Upon having heard ZhouDu’s response, XiaYao replied hastily,

“Nothing, just asking.” He originally wanted to ask ZhouDu along to the
bookstore tomorrow, but now that ZhouDu had something planned, he
decided to go on his own and not bother him over such trifles.

“Is it really nothing?”

“It’s really nothing.” XiaYao smiled and urged, “Let’s hurry back.”

ZhouDu glanced at XiaYao and inched toward him to whisper in his ear,
“Don’t you want to know the answer to that question Jiang Shiwen
asked me?”

XiaYao was caught off guard, and only after a few minutes, he

recalled what Jiang Shiwen had asked. He replied with a blush
creeping up his cheeks, “I know who it is.”

ZhouDu looked at him with surprise, “You know?”

XiaYao nodded and took a few quick strides ahead. ZhouDu

followed close behind and kept on asking, “How did you know?”

XiaYao had no intention of enlightening him, but ZhouDu persisted, “You

certainly do not know. I didn’t even say it aloud, how would you know?”

XiaYao stopped dead in his tracks and turned to look ZhouDu
264 Report
straight in the eye, “I know.”

“Then tell me who it is.” ZhouDu’s eyes sparkled with anticipation as he

gazed at XiaYao.

XiaYao’s face burned up as he whispered, “It’s me.”

After standing stupefied for several seconds, ZhouDu’s face flushed.

He shot XiaYao a guilty glance and asked, “How did you know?”

XiaYao couldn’t bring himself to answer his question. He couldn’t just tell
ZhouDu, “I jack off to you every time, too.” Luckily for him, ZhouDu didn’t
dwell on it and left once he had dropped him off at home.

Early the next morning, just as XiaYao blinked his eyes open, his cell
phone began to ring. He took it out and saw that the caller was ZhouDu.

“Hey.” His husky voice was sending tremors that coursed through
ZhouDu’s entire body, leaving him weak in the knees.

ZhouDu: “Did I wake you?”

XiaYao: “No, I was just about to get up.”

ZhouDu heard the rustling of XiaYao’s clothes as he was getting

dressed, and a shameless idea came to him. “XiaYao, give me a kiss.”

With one hand holding the phone and the other pulling on clothes, XiaYao
asked after a moment of confusion, “Ah? How do I kiss you if you’re not

A loud “Muah” came out of the blue from the other end of the
265 Report
phone. XiaYao blushed, he now understood what ZhouDu meant.

He held his phone out before him, stared at the microphone for a moment,
then proceeded to also press his lips to his phone.

“Hehe,” ZhouDu giggled. After having heard someone seemingly rush him
in the background, ZhouDu then reluctantly ended the call with XiaYao.

XiaYao cleaned up for a bit and then left the apartment. He had planned
to pay a visit to that big bookstore located in downtown because they had
a vaster collection of materials there.

Today was a warm day. When XiaYao stepped off the bus, he found the sun
glaring down fiercely at him. Fortunately, the bookstore wasn’t too far
away; despite that, when he completed his walk over, a thin layer of
perspiration covered his back.

The bookstore was packed on the weekend. XiaYao ran up to the High
School Data Area on the second floor. After perusing the materials for
the better part of a day, he made up his mind on which ones he wanted. He
walked down the stairs with books and papers in his arms intending to pay.

The checkout counter on the first floor, however, had a long line. XiaYao
gave it some thought and decided that he wasn’t in a rush anyway, so he
found a place to sit and started on a book.

He was engrossed in the book when he felt a tap on his shoulder.

XiaYao looked up in surprise to find a beautiful girl smiling back at him.

“Hi, XiaYao~”

For a moment, XiaYao stared at her puzzlingly and thought to himself

that she looked familiar. Once the girl realized that XiaYao didn’t recognize
her, she puffed out her cheeks and complained, “I
266 Report
am Fang Yaoyao, we’ve even gone to the movies together, have you

XiaYao responded then.

“It’s you.” Quickly with an apologetic smile, he added, “Sorry, I’m a tad face

“Oh, it’s all good, it’s all good.” Fang Yaoyao set the bag she carried
down on the table and took a seat next to XiaYao.

“How come you’re here alone, where’s that hottie from last time?” “He had

plans for today.”

“Oh, I see.” Disappointment flashed across Fang Yaoyao’s face. XiaYao

asked, “How about you, are you here by yourself too?” “Nah, my

brother’s over there.”

Fang Yaoyao raised her arm and pointed, and only then did XiaYao
discover Fang Zeyu nestled behind several rows of bookshelves.

He looked at his back guiltily. If they’re keeping score, ZhouDu had already
picked fights with the man twice for his sake. XiaYao believed Fang
Zeyu to be quite the innocent victim in all of these instances.

“What are you buying?” Fang Yaoyao strained her neck and leaned in front
of him to see the reference book in his arms.

Sadly, the book was all in English. Wearing a frown, Fang Yaoyao bit her
lip and said, “I can’t even read one single word on there.”

XiaYao found her artlessness to be endearing, so he softly read aloud

the title of the book.

XiaYao’s perfect pronunciation immediately blew Fang Yaoyao
267 Report
away, she regarded him with awe, “You’re amazing, my brother and I aren’t
good with school. My parents say that the both of us are brother and
sister dum-dums.”

She was mid-sentence when a hand knocked on her forehead.

“You may be a dum-dum, but don’t drag me into it.” Fang Zeyu
appeared before them with a few books in his hands.

Fang Yaoyao covered her forehead and scowled, “If you’re not a
dummy, then what are you? You all-brawns-no-brains jock.”

Fang Zeyu rolled his eyes at her and directed his attention to XiaYao.
He eyed XiaYao from head to toe and asked, “You didn’t bring your
violent little brother along with you today?”

XiaYao was left awkward and didn’t know how to respond so he shook
his head.

Fang Yaoyao interjected hastily, “Have you given your brother my

noticed that there were fewer people at the checkout and quickly changed the
subject, “Since the line’s shorter now, we should head over and pay.”

Fang Zeyu looked at XiaYao thoughtfully, and then stood up first to head for
the checkout.

After the three had paid and stepped outside, the heat grew even more

Initially, XiaYao had planned to go home straight after. Fang

Yaoyao, however, had other plans. She nagged unceasingly at Fang Zeyu to
get her ice cream, and to her delight in the end, Fang Zeyu had yielded to
his sister’s demands.

“Come with us,” he said to XiaYao.

XiaYao hesitated and shook his head.

“What, afraid that your brother will fight me again?” Fang Zeyu ribbed
with a smile.

His words made XiaYao mortified. He shot a glance at Fang Zeyu and
said, “I’d like to officially apologize on behalf of him. He can be headstrong
sometimes, please don’t take it to heart.”

Fang Zeyu patted XiaYao on the shoulder, “If you don’t want me to take this
to heart, then come have ice cream with me.”

XiaYao gave in, because upon having heard Fang Zeyu’s response, he felt
like declining the offer was no longer an option.

He initially wanted to treat them, but Fang Yaoyao waved his offer away,
“I’m telling ya, my brother’s filthy rich, so you can’t help him save one penny.
He won the championship of that whatever school sports competition thing
that he enrolled in a couple of days back. The school gave him another
bonus again.”

While she spoke, Fang Zeyu had already gone over and lined up.

“Oh no!” Fang Yaoyao exclaimed, “I forgot to tell my brother which flavour I
want. No, I’d have to go see for myself, otherwise, he’ll definitely choose
the grossest one they have for me.”

She sprinted away the second the last word had left her mouth.

Not long after XiaYao sat down, Fang Zeyu approached him with two ice
cream cones in his hands.

“Where’s your sister?” XiaYao abashedly took the ice cream cone he had
been offered, and asked this.

Fang Zeyu replied, “She’s exactly what people would call a drama
269 Report
queen. The flavour she must have has run out and they’re making more in
the back right now. It’s fine, just let her wait all she wants.”

The ice cream shop was large, and the vast majority of the patrons were
couples. XiaYao and Fang Zeyu were seated across from each other and
suddenly felt a little awkward.

Fang Zeyu glanced at XiaYao’s purchased book and pointed at it,

“Are you good at English?”

XiaYao nodded; Fang Zeyu frowned and said, “I find English to be very

After a moment of thought, XiaYao said, “I can tell you for a fact that
learning English isn’t very difficult at all. How about I recommend you
some English reference books? If you study them, maybe it will help.”

“Sure.” Fang Zeyu said gladly, dug out his phone and asked,
“What’s your number? Text me the list, so if I don’t understand
something I can hit you up.”

After XiaYao gave Fang Zeyu his number, Fang Zeyu saved it on his
phone and dialled. XiaYao took out his phone and saved the unknown
number as Fang Zeyu.

ZhouDu and his mother came out of the mall. The two originally planned
to drive and leave directly to the next place, but Mrs. Zhou spotted the ice
cream shop that stood opposite the mall straight away. She grabbed
ZhouDu, who headed for the underground garage, saying, “Son, let’s
go get some ice cream.”

ZhouDu gave his mother a disapproving look, “You are just done with
your confinement and you want to eat that?”

“Oh, I craved for ice cream during confinement, but your dear father
wouldn’t let me have a lick for the life of him. Come on, let’s go secretly
enjoy a little bit of it today.”
270 Report
ZhouDu couldn’t help but nod and let his mother have her way.

Once the pair had entered the ice cream shop, while ZhouDu looked
for a place for his mother to sit, the sharp-eyed Mrs. Zhou immediately
spotted XiaYao. Without missing a beat, she took a hold of her son and made
a beeline for XiaYao.

ZhouDu looked up and saw XiaYao who was eating ice cream
alongside Fang Zeyu.

Right then, his expression instantly darkened into an angry glower.

XiaYao just happened to be seated with his side to the entrance, so it didn’t
take him very long to discover Mrs. Zhou, who was coming his way with
ZhouDu in tow.

XiaYao paled; he rose from his seat, a little flustered.

Fang Zeyu noticed that XiaYao looked a little bit off. He followed his gaze
and turned just in time to find ZhouDu being pulled along by a beautiful
auntie, headed in their direction.

“Yaoyao, I see you’re out with friends,” Mrs. Zhou greeted XiaYao

XiaYao didn’t dare look at ZhouDu, he only watched Mrs. Zhou and gave
her a vague “yeah” as a reply.

ZhouDu’s mother nudged her son, “Go get me a strawberry-

flavoured one.” Then, she walked over and sat herself down next to XiaYao.

ZhouDu’s mother said, “It’s a real scorcher today, isn’t it? Is this your
friend? Aren’t you a handsome young man.” She beamed at Fang Zeyu.

Fang Zeyu greeted Mrs. Zhou courteously.

Mrs. Zhou continued, “It sure is hot today, what were you out
getting?” She turned to ask XiaYao.

XiaYao replied, “Just some reference materials.”

Once ZhouDu had bought the ice cream, he approached them
272 Report
alongside Fang Yaoyao. When Fang Yaoyao caught sight of ZhouDu’s mother,
she exclaimed, “Wow, you must be ZhouDu’s sister! You’re so gorgeous!”

Amused by her words, Mrs. Zhou laughed, “What sister, I’m his
mother.” After that, she took the ice cream ZhouDu had handed over to her,
and scooped some into her mouth with a spoon.

When ZhouDu had sat down, he turned to look out the window. Fang
Yaoyao, on the other hand, chitter-chattered away with Mrs. Zhou.

XiaYao’s mind was in turmoil, but it wasn’t like he could explain himself
to ZhouDu at this moment in time; he could do nothing but sit on one side with
an anxious face, not bothering with another bite of his ice cream.

After she finished her ice cream, Mrs. Zhou picked up a napkin and dabbed
her lips with it gracefully. She turned and said to XiaYao, “Yaoyao, come
back with auntie, it’s too hot out.”

XiaYao initially didn’t want to trouble Mrs. Zhou; however, he was afraid
that ZhouDu would interpret his refusal as desire to stay with Fang Zeyu, so
he got up and followed her.

XiaYao and ZhouDu were both in the backseat; neither of them spoke
to the other. XiaYao stole glances at ZhouDu out of the corner of his eye and
found him straight-faced with seemingly not an ounce of inclination to pay
him any mind.

He felt uneasy, but he couldn’t talk their problems through right now with
Mrs. Zhou just up front. He thought about calling ZhouDu up later once he
got back.

The car rolled forward slowly, then suddenly a ringing tone arose from the
driver’s seat. Mrs. Zhou reached for her bag and opened it, she dug out the
noisy cell phone.
273 Report
When she saw that the caller ID was her babysitter, she picked up right

“Hello? Uh-huh, uh-huh, what? Ok, I’m on my way. Don’t worry, okay.
I’m driving, so I’ve got to hang up.”

As soon as Mrs. Zhou ended the call, she pulled the car over to the curb.
She turned around to face XiaYao looking apologetic, “Yaoyao, I’m terribly
sorry. Auntie won’t be able to send you back. Something came up with
ZhouZhou, so I have to hurry home. How about this—I’ll have ZhouDu
drop you off.”

“That’s okay…” XiaYao answered hastily, “Auntie, you head home, I’ll just
take the bus on my own.”

“How is that going to work? The heat is insufferable. Let ZhouDu get you
home in a taxi.” She shifted her gaze to her son and said, “Make sure you
get XiaYao home, okay?”

Since XiaYao was deathly afraid of inconveniencing ZhouDu, he

continued to decline. ZhouDu, meanwhile, got out of the car without saying a

He stood outside and focused on the roof of the vehicle, not

bothering to spare a glance to XiaYao, who was still inside.

Seeing as how ZhouDu had already disembarked the car, XiaYao thought
it would come off as rude if he refused any further. He could only push the
door open and get out.

Before Mrs. Zhou rolled up the car window, she instructed ZhouDu
repeatedly to send XiaYao safely home. Afterwards, she drove off, sending
dust particles flying.

XiaYao stood awkwardly next to ZhouDu; just when he parted his lips in
an attempt to explain, ZhouDu raised his hand and successfully
hailed a taxi. XiaYao had once again missed the
274 Report
opportunity to explain himself.

The taxi brought them to the front of the alley and came to a halt. After
settling the bill, ZhouDu opened the door and got out of the car. XiaYao took a
deep breath and followed behind. The pair walked toward the small alley
which had hardly any people in it.

XiaYao expected ZhouDu to question him why he was with Fang Zeyu
back there, but after waiting for some time, ZhouDu didn’t show any signs
that he wanted to strike up a conversation, XiaYao stopped and
whispered, “ZhouDu.”

Up ahead, ZhouDu’s footsteps came to a stop, and he didn’t turn around,

nor did he keep moving. XiaYao couldn’t see ZhouDu’s expression;
feeling a little flustered, he picked up his pace and caught up to
ZhouDu’s side.

He looked at ZhouDu’s face anxiously and found that ZhouDu was staring
blankly off in the distance.

“ZhouDu.” XiaYao weighed his words, “Please listen to my


ZhouDu still refused to meet XiaYao’s gaze.

XiaYao attempted to reach for the corner of ZhouDu’s shirt, but ZhouDu
slapped his hand away.

“Explain?” With his tone grim, he turned to stare XiaYao down, “Have
you forgotten what you promised me? You told me that if you ever see that
guy again, you won’t give him a moment of your time.”

XiaYao’s mouth opened and shut before he continued with difficulty,

“I, I just ran into him, so I just…”

“So you just followed him?” ZhouDu’s chest heaved, as he said bitterly,
“Are you a dog? Do you follow around every person you meet?”

ZhouDu’s insults left XiaYao anguished, he subconsciously took a step

The corners of ZhouDu’s eyes were reddened, he tore into him further,
“Or is it that you’ve always been this way, you will give yourself up over

XiaYao paled. With quivering lips, he struggled to explain, “No… it isn’t like

At that moment, jealousy had gotten the better of ZhouDu. Despite knowing
how those words would hurt XiaYao, he had lost control of himself. He
clenched his fists and breathed heavily, and repeated to himself, ‘ZhouDu,
shut up. You need to apologize to XiaYao.’

All traces of colour had already left XiaYao’s face; he didn’t know how to
explain himself to ZhouDu.

The two were silent for a long time, and ZhouDu gradually came to his
senses. He looked at XiaYao, who was pushed into the corner by his harsh
words. His heart ached at the sight.

“I…” His mouth opened and shut and he reached out to touch XiaYao.
Suddenly, buzzing sounds of vibrations came from XiaYao’s pocket.

ZhouDu’s face darkened. Only he knew XiaYao’s phone number, so who

would be calling him right now? The fingers which had initially reached for
XiaYao changed course and dived straight into XiaYao’s pocket; he fished
the phone out. ——

Fang Zeyu.

The three characters on the caller ID sent ZhouDu’s entire body

trembling, and seemingly out of nowhere, all of that pent-up rage
completely receded just as quickly as it came. He regarded XiaYao with
stone cold eyes. Word by word, he enunciated, “Care to explain

The ringtone chimed on merrily in the empty alley.

XiaYao’s voice was so hoarse it was scary. He began with difficulty,

“I gave him my number because…”
ZhouDu suddenly let out a chuckle˜ —a very, very soft chuckle. XiaYao
looked at him surprised, and saw that ZhouDu’s smile never
even had the chance to reach his eyes before completely fading out of sight.

He lifted the phone, expressionless, and he hurled it at the wall behind

himself. With a “bang”, the phone made contact with the wall and was instantly
smashed to pieces. Once again, the alley fell silent.

XiaYao hadn’t expected that ZhouDu would get this bent out of shape.
His heart thumped, achingly and in despair.

After he had smashed the phone, without throwing a glance in

XiaYao’s direction, ZhouDu turned and walked out of the alley.

XiaYao lost track of how long he had stood there, and only when his right
leg began to turn numb did he fall out of his stupor.

He cast his gaze down at the scattered remains of his phone on the ground
and crouched down slowly, collecting the pieces bit by bit.

He was picking up the pieces with one hand while rubbing his eyes with the
other. He thought that shedding tears over a small thing like this would
probably make him look like a fool.

ZhouDu probably didn’t like him anymore.

When ZhouDu stormed home in a huff, Mrs. Zhou was playing with
ZhouZhou with her in her arms. All of a sudden, she caught sight of her son
running upstairs with his head hung low.

“ZhouDu.” She rose and yelled, “Did you bring XiaYao home yet?”

ZhouDu responded with a quick “Um-hmm” while his footsteps can be heard
steadily ascending the stairs.

Mrs. Zhou found it a little strange. She passed ZhouZhou over to the
babysitter and followed ZhouDu up the stairs.

She walked over to ZhouDu’s room door, reached out and knocked; she
inquired with concern in her voice, “Son, what’s the matter?”

“Nothing.” ZhouDu replied in a muffled voice.

“If it’s nothing, what are you doing locking yourself in your room for?
Open up.”

The room fell silent. Just when Mrs. Zhou believed that ZhouDu wasn’t
going to let her in, the door was unlocked. ZhouDu’s eyes were still a little

Mrs. Zhou had never before today seen her son with that kind of
expression across his face. She immediately edged her way into the room
and closed the door behind her. She asked softly, “What happened?
Talk to your mother.”

ZhouDu held his neck stiff and kept silent. Mrs. Zhou took her son
278 Report
by the arm and sat them both down on a chair, “Is it a quarrel with XiaYao?”

ZhouDu continued to remain silent and Mrs. Zhou sighed to herself. She
knew her own son, something must have happened on the way when he sent
XiaYao home. However, what really surprised her was the fact that this was
the first time she’d ever witnessed ZhouDu with such an expression, like he
felt wronged and hostile. Like he didn’t know whether to be upset with
himself or with XiaYao.

“You boys aren’t children anymore, it’s perfectly normal to quarrel. If you’re
to blame, then cool off and go apologize to XiaYao tomorrow. If XiaYao
was the one in the wrong…”

“It’s all my fault.” ZhouDu interrupted his mother with a hoarse voice, “I
said some terrible words, and I did some terrible things.”

Mrs. Zhou frowned, “Was it a fight?”

ZhouDu shook his head and balled his hands into fists. He confessed
after a moment, “I smashed something of XiaYao’s.”

Mrs. Zhou’s brows furrowed even more, she looked up at her son and said
to ZhouDu solemnly, “I won’t ask for the reason that caused the quarrel. But
the behavior that you exhibited, breaking XiaYao’s things are beyond
immature. Are you aware that it was an act of violence?”

ZhouDu lowered his head and said nothing.

Mrs. Zhou carried on, “During a fight, in the heat of the moment, you may
say things that you don’t mean but you were venting your anger through
smashing XiaYao’s property? ZhouDu, you do understand that was
violent behavior, right? Where’s XiaYao now? Where did you two

ZhouDu was overcome with regret the moment he up and left; he
279 Report
regretted and feared. His regret stemmed from the outrageous things
he said to XiaYao, along with shattering the phone that he gifted him right
before his eyes. His fear stemmed from the likelihood of XiaYao never
speaking to him again.

“He probably went home…” ZhouDu’s voice caught a hint of


Mrs. Zhou sighed and patted her son on the shoulder, “There, there,

She got up once she said what she needed to say. When she walked
over to the door, Mrs. Zhou turned and said, “Cool your head off in your room.

ZhouDu sat alone in the empty room, staring at the tie that XiaYao gifted

The classroom on Mondays always looked dead. Everyone had yet to

adjust from the comfort of the weekend, but was forced to sit in the
classroom with the dark circles from staying up late the previous night. XiaYao
was writing down English vocabulary from memory as a listless Chubby sat
down next to him.

“Morning.” He turned his head to greet XiaYao.

XiaYao collected himself and smiled at Chubby, “Didn’t sleep so well

last night?”

Chubby eyed XiaYao glumly, and only then did the events that
unfolded at Jiang Shiwen’s on Saturday come back to XiaYao. Chubby
witnessed his goddess get together with another boy with his two
280 Report
eyes, it’s not presumptuous in the slightest to assume that it must’ve hit him

“You,” XiaYao consoled Chubby, “You shouldn’t be too upset. As they

say, ‘there are plenty of fish in the sea.’ It’s impossible for a person to only
like one single person in their lifetime. There will definitely be a girl out
there for you.”

Since XiaYao had his face to Chubby, he failed to notice ZhouDu who
passed by just in time to overhear those words; his face instantly paled.

Chubby sighed and weakly dug out his English book, afterwards, he laid on
the table spacing out.

When ZhouDu returned to his seat, his head was full of the words that
XiaYao said earlier –

It’s impossible for a person to only like one single person in their lifetime.

He suddenly panicked. If XiaYao didn’t like him anymore, what should

he do?

Due to the current state of things, he could no longer bring himself to

apologize to XiaYao anymore. He had no idea of knowing if XiaYao would
choose to ignore him. He was afraid to hear those words come out of XiaYao’s
mouth again, ‘ZhouDu, I don’t actually like you.’

Once the thought of losing XiaYao came to be; ZhouDu discovered that
they were like brambles that grew like wildfire, the thorns embedded
themselves deep into his heart. Drawing a breath had to be done with great
care because it hurt. He was preoccupied all day. When he finally chanced
upon XiaYao in the corridor, XiaYao kept his head low and passed him by as
if he were invisible.

“He actually ignored me.” At that moment, that was the only
281 Report
thought on ZhouDu’s mind.

But little did he know, the exact same thought went through XiaYao’s
head as well.

The instant the after school bell rung in the afternoon, ZhouDu packed
up his things right away. He stared at XiaYao’s back and saw him standing
up so he quickly followed behind.

Just as XiaYao emerged from the school gate, a girl in the same class
suddenly rushed over to him and said, “XiaYao, there’s a boy at the school
gate looking for you. I think he was asking around for you just now.”

XiaYao was somewhat surprised. He thanked the girl and asked,


The girl pointed, and XiaYao followed her finger to find a familiar figure at
a glance.

It was Fang Zeyu.

XiaYao stopped in his tracks and hesitated for a moment, unsure

whether or not to approach him.

Fang Zeyu, however, noticed XiaYao. He flashed a dazzling white-

toothed grin at XiaYao as he waved at him.

XiaYao stood in place and Fang Zeyu ran up to him, “I finally found you.”

“What’s wrong?” XiaYao stepped back and kept a little distance

between them.

Fang Zeyu lifted the bag in his hand and said, “When you left
yesterday, you left your reference books behind. I tried to call you when I
noticed, but no one answered. I tried to reach you again in the evening but I
couldn’t even get through then.”
282 Report
That’s when XiaYao realized the whole point of Fang Zeyu’s trip was to
return his books.

“Thank you.” He thanked Fang Zeyu with some embarrassment.

Fang Zeyu handed the bag to XiaYao, “Luckily, Yaoyao knew which school
you go to. I was afraid that you might need it right away, so I skipped my last
class to send you it.”

Once he registered those words, XiaYao felt even more

embarrassed. He thanked Fang Zeyu again.

Fang Zeyu cocked a brow and said, “Don’t mention it. My last class is also
training, anyway. So it doesn’t matter if I miss a day or two, but if you insist,
then I don’t mind a drink.”

At that, XiaYao quickly fell silent. Fang Zeyu’s request wasn’t

unreasonable. He came this far to bring him his books. There was nothing
wrong with buying the guy a drink, but… XiaYao didn’t understand why.
Even if he knows that there was nothing between him and Fang Zeyu, he
hesitated when he thought about how ZhouDu’s reacted yesterday.

Fang Zeyu noticed XiaYao’s silence, and immediately brushed it off,

“Um, I was just kidding. I’ll head back first, see you around.”

XiaYao looked at him, “I’m terribly sorry.”

Fang Zeyu smiled and said nothing. He left riding his bicycle.

ZhouDu had been standing behind XiaYao the entire time, and only when
WangHao sauntered over and smacked him on the back, did he come out of
his trance.

WangHao bounced backwards reflexively. Normally, at this time, ZhouDu

would have definitely retaliated with a swift kick. To his surprise, ZhouDu
threw a glance at him and left without a word.
283 Report
WangHao found it odd. He jogged to catch up with ZhouDu,
“What’s with you today? Feeling down?”

ZhouDu remained silent.

As if something suddenly came to mind, WangHao said, “Right, why

didn’t you go home with XiaYao today? Don’t you usually wait at the gate
before class even ends? Where’s XiaYao?”

He raised his head to scan the crowd, only to find that XiaYao had already
crossed the street. ZhouDu headed the other way, and the two marched on
in two completely opposite directions. Only then did WangHao begin to
realize something was off between ZhouDu and XiaYao.

He followed ZhouDu and bumped him on the shoulder, “Hey, you two

ZhouDu ignored him.

WangHao knitted his brows, “There’s no way you two broke up?…”

ZhouDu turned around fiercely and glared at WangHao.

“Fine, fine, fine, I’ll shut up now.” Seeing that ZhouDu wasn’t paying
him any mind, WangHao continued talking to himself, “And ZhangYang too.
I don’t know what’s up with him lately, he’s been distant. Say, the both of
you don’t tell me anything, do you even see me as a bro anymore.”

ZhouDu had enough of it; he snapped angrily at WangHao, “You’re noisy

as hell.”

WangHao patted his shoulder and sighed, “I get it. People who’ve been
dumped are always in a bad mood. It’s fine, I understand. Come into my arms
if you need to cry. Brother will comfort you. ”

ZhouDu hadn’t paid attention to what WangHao had been
284 Report
blathering. He had a lot on his mind, all that he could think about was XiaYao
and Fang Zeyu.

When he saw XiaYao and Fang Zeyu at the ice cream shop
yesterday, he was shaken up there and then.

XiaYao explicitly told him that he had nothing going on in the

weekend, and yet he was having ice cream with Fang Zeyu behind his
back. In any case, he wouldn’t go eat ice cream with any person other than
him. Should XiaYao not have requested him to take him and Guo
Dongdong that day, he wouldn’t even have gone to Jiang Shiwen’s
birthday party.

Ever since he started to go out with XiaYao, he had even been vigilant
to maintain some distance between himself and WangHao. He didn’t want to
leave any room for misunderstanding, but XiaYao, he would…

At the thought of that, ZhouDu clenched his fists.

Truth be told, he didn’t hate Fang Zeyu, but rather, he was afraid of him.
ZhouDu was afraid that XiaYao would have a better choice for a partner.

When XiaYao got back to his apartment complex, he was just about to go up
the stairs, but the familiar limousine that appeared at the door made him
think twice. He glanced at the car and slowly made his way up the stairs.

A musty smell permeated the dilapidated corridor all year round. A feeling
grew in the pit XiaYao’s stomach as he continued.

When he reached the front door, he was ready to unlock it with a key
when a strange female voice arised from behind the poorly sound-
insulated wooden door. “Sooner or later, he will have to return to his father’s

XiaYao’s fingers that were ready to open the door hesitated.

When that woman walked out, XiaYao deliberately hid himself on the level
on top. Peeking out from the staircase gap, he noticed that person was the
woman he had chanced upon previously in the passageway. He stared
at her, not moving an inch. Only when she had reached the first floor and
was almost out of sight, did he take a breath and walked towards his
home, stopping in front of the doorway.

Since young, Xia Yao had never once heard his mother mentioning his
father; he had always assumed that he didn’t have one. Perhaps he died or
abandoned him and his mother. No matter which it was, the one sharing
her life together with him had always been his mother.

He didn’t understand what did that woman meant by ‘Sooner or later, he

will have to return to his father’s side.’ In other words, he indeed had a
father, and maybe he was living quite well.

Nonetheless, no matter how affluent that person, also known as his father,
was, XiaYao would never leave his mother. He didn’t need him in his past life
or his current life. He didn’t need him when he was young, all the more so
now that he had grown up.

Although the present life he had with his mother was destitute, XiaYao
believed that with hard work, he certainly would be able to gift his mother a
better life in the future.

He stood outside the door to adjust his emotions, before finally opening
that slightly mottled wooden door to his home.

“Mom, did that friend of yours come here again?” he asked,
286 Report
feigning innocence. As XiaYao’s mother had too much on her mind, she
didn’t quite catch what XiaYao was saying. XiaYao continued patiently, “I
saw that auntie again when I climbed down the stairs.”

“Oh,” XiaYao’s mother’s gaze flickered, “she is free today, so she visited

“I see,” XiaYao changed the topic, not paying it much attention, “Mom,
let’s have fish for dinner today. It’s been a while since we had it.”

XiaYao’s mother stood up in a hurry, “Alright. Go on and do your

homework then. I’ll be cooking dinner now.”

XiaYao carried his bag as he went into his room. With his back leaning
on the door of his room, he lowered his eyes, pondering.

When the Zhou family’s nanny called ZhouDu over for dinner, she realized
his door was open, and he currently had his head on the desk while
scribbling something. Looking at the bunch of sheets of paper ZhouDu
threw all over the floor, the nanny assumed he was solving a problematic
question. Thus, she knocked on the door and called him softly, “The dinner
is ready.”

Once ZhouDu heard a voice coming from behind his back, he

frantically shoved the paper in his hands into a drawer. He glanced at the
scatter of wasted paper at his feet, pretending as though he was nonchalant
while replying, “Got it. I’ll be there soon.” After the nanny had left, he bent
down and picked the papers up in a hurry.

Early in the morning next day, ZhouDu had heavy dark circles under
both of his eyes. He packed his items listlessly, getting ready for school.
ZhouDu’s mother was just coming down the stairs when she yelled out to
ZhouDu, who was then about to go off.

“Look at how lifeless you look. Let me guess, XiaYao didn’t accept
287 Report
your apology?”

ZhouDu answered with a “Mn”, seemingly unwilling to discuss it with his

mother. With a push of the door, he sprinted out immediately. ZhouDu’s
mother stood on the stairs, her brows creasing as she fell deep into

As always, the school was bustling with life. Both of ZhouDu’s hands
were tucked into his pockets, clutching an item tightly. XiaYao had his head
lowered while he did his homework on his seat. After staring at XiaYao’s
back for a long while, ZhouDu finally mustered up his courage. He got up his
seat to head over to XiaYao.

However, a classmate sitting in front of XiaYao turned over all of a sudden

and placed a reference book onto XiaYao’s table. XiaYao stopped
writing and took the reference book. The two of them appeared to be in a
discussion. With no choice, ZhouDu plopped back down his seat again.

There were two consecutive exams in the morning, and in the

afternoon, XiaYao was dragged away by Chubby to the canteen for lunch.
The chance to talk to XiaYao kept slipping through ZhouDu’s fingers.

After the third lesson had ended, XiaYao got up and left his seat. Only
then did ZhouDu chase after him. However, XiaYao was stopped by the
English teacher when he reached the school gates; the English teacher had
always adored XiaYao. Hence, ZhouDu could only head back to the
classroom. Not long after he got back, the First Lady entered the
classroom with a scowl. The noisy classroom went silent in an instant.

“The class is about to start, and yet all of you are still making a din. Don’t you
know how to get your textbook out in advance and read it?!”

Such ridiculous reprimands were a common occurrence for
288 Report
everyone. The obedient students hastily took out the textbooks
needed. However, ZhouDu looked slightly annoyed, glaring
absentmindedly at his desk. The First Lady usually paid a bit more attention
to ZhouDu. Once he noticed how preoccupied he looked, he immediately saw

The moment he was about to berate ZhouDu, a sudden earthquake warning

alarm blared all over the school. As the city ZhouDu resided in was a seismic
zone in itself, plus the Sichuan Earthquake disaster happened just a few
months ago, the class went into a frenzy at once.

“Hurry up and get down the stairs! Run towards open spaces!” the First
Lady stood behind the teacher’s desk as he howled at the terrified
students. Roused from their shock, the students swarmed out of the
classroom. Thumpings could be felt in every corner of the worn-out third-
year block, almost causing the building to be on the verge of collapse from
the shaking. Only after every single student left the classroom did the First
Lady run down the floor, following behind his students. Everyone had
congregated at the newly renovated stadium. Currently, each and every
homeroom teacher was gathering their students together.

ZhouDu panted heavily, his hands on his knees. The faces of the
classmates beside him were drained of color. He lifted his head and swept
his eyes over his group of classmates, realizing that the familiar figure in
his mind was nowhere to be found. Panic consumed ZhouDu right away.
He grabbed a random person beside him instantly and questioned,
“Have you seen XiaYao?” The person went as white as a sheet as he shook
his head vehemently.

A girl next to them was rather calm. She informed the panicking
ZhouDu, “When I got into the classroom just now, I saw XiaYao
following the English teacher to the office on the fifth floor.” Before the girl
even ended her sentence, ZhouDu had already pushed through the
packed crowd and dashed towards the teaching block,
289 Report
heading opposite the stream of students. An aghast cry came out of the
crowd. When The First Lady turned over to take a look, his face contorted
with anger. “ZhouDu! Come back!” he roared at ZhouDu. Nevertheless,
ZhouDu recklessly rushed into the teaching block, as though nothing went
into his ears.

ZhouDu’s mad dash to the teaching block made WangHao agitated.

He tried to chase him, but was caught by ZhangYang behind him. “Let
go of me!” WangHao bellowed at ZhangYang. However, ZhangYang
clutched WangHao tightly in silence.

“Are you going to just watch ZhouDu dashing to his death?”

WangHao struggled away from ZhanYang’s clutches wildly. However,
ZhangYang merely uttered, “That’s his choice. But there’s no way I will let
you throw your life away.” Fire burned intensely in WangHao’s eyes as he
stared at ZhangYang. On the other hand, The First Lady howled out with a
formidable force, “Silence, all of you!”

“Excuse me,” XiaYao muttered to someone from another class, before

sauntering to the area where his classmates were gathered. Once
WangHao spotted XiaYao, he hollered at him, “XiaYao, you fucker!
ZhouDu went up to look for you!” XiaYao froze immediately. He noticed that
WangHao, who was gripped firmly by ZhangYang, had his eyes
completely red.

Realizing XiaYao wasn’t in the teacher’s office, ZhouDu hurried down to

the classroom below. The wailings of the alarm above him distressed him.
Truth be told, he was terrified, terrified that the block would collapse in the next
second before he had the chance to find XiaYao.

After coming back to his senses and looking at how anxious

WangHao was, XiaYao hastily walked to him to explain, “Don’t worry; this is
just a drill.” Ever since the Sichuan earthquake disaster, every single school
began taking earthquake drills much more seriously. This very drill was an
unprepared emergency exercise without any advance notice given. The
teachers had been notified long ago,
290 Report
which was why the First Lady had arrived at the classroom ahead of time.
And XiaYao, who followed the English teacher to the office, was told about it
by the teacher the moment the alarm rang.

XiaYao and his English teacher had only left the building after most of the
people got off the block. He couldn’t find his class right away, but when he
finally did, he was given such news by WangHao. He lifted his head
and glanced towards the teaching block, a complicated expression
on his face. However, at that moment, ZhouDu was still searching every
single empty classroom for XiaYao.

The bald, beer-bellied principal of A High was over 50 years old and did not
wear any spectacles. While pointing his pudgy fingers at ZhouDu, he told
ZhouDu’s father who was standing at the side, “Look at your son! Gosh! I don’t
even know what in the world is inside his mind! Everyone knows to get
out of the building during an earthquake; and yet he just ran up the
building on his own! Tell me, what in the world are you thinking?!”

The First Lady was standing beside the principal too, forcing a smile
on his face as he spoke, “It’s all my fault. I have not educated my students
enough about emergency drills. Please don’t worry; besides the usual
curriculum, this would also be taught to them next time.”

“Please calm down,” ZhouDu’s father smiled gently at the

principal. The principal didn’t dare to snap at ZhouDu’s father. Instead,
he glared at the First Lady, “As a homeroom teacher, you are responsible
too. Aren’t all homeroom teachers informed to get to their classes early to
organize the students? How did you manage to let him run back up the
building?” The First Lady nodded profusely, having no courage to retort to
the principal. Following next, the principal turned his stern face towards
ZhouDu, “Tell me, what did you go up for?”
291 Report
ZhouDu pursed up his lips, displaying his refusal to reply. With a frown,
his father commanded in a low voice, “ZhouDu.” After a slight pause,
ZhouDu forced an answer out begrudgingly, “To take something.”

The principal slammed his chubby hand on wooden office desk with a ‘thud.’
The impact was probably rather painful as he scrunched his face before
exploding on ZhouDu, “What in the world is so important that you have to risk
your life to take it?!” ZhouDu lowered his head, receiving his lecture in silence.
Only then did ZhouDu’s father speak to the principal again, “Please calm
down. When are you free? Why not we find some time to have a cup of
coffee together?”

Since ZhouDu’s father was a respected person in H City as well; the

principal didn’t have the nerve to lash out at him. Seeing that
ZhouDu’s father had given him an out, the principal waved his hands and let
ZhouDu off.

When ZhouDu got into his classroom, WangHao was about to run up to
him and give him a scolding. But unexpectedly, the First Lady was just
behind ZhouDu. A glance around the classroom showed that everyone had
their head lowered, readying themselves for a fierce scolding by the First
Lady. To everyone’s surprise, the First Lady merely heaved out a sigh,
“Although it is just a drill today, you’ll never know when a real disaster will
strike. It is negligence on my part too. Every day, I nagged at all of you to
study, study, and study; yet never once did I mention about safety education.”
He took a look at ZhouDu, who was at his own seat, and continued,
“ZhouDu, you must learn from the mistakes you made today. time, the first
thing to do in danger is to ensure your own safety. Nothing is more important
than your life, got it?” Once XiaYao heard that from the First Lady, he couldn’t
help clutching his ballpoint pen tightly.

When the school ended, ZhouDu was fetched by his father to be
292 Report
brought home. XiaYao packed his stuff and got out of the classroom after
most of his classmates had left. But the moment he stepped out of the
classroom, his way was blocked by WangHao out of the blue. “Are you
having a fight with ZhouDu?” WangHao got right to the point. XiaYao
shook his head, not knowing how he should explain. WangHao paid no
mind to it, too.

With that, the two of them strolled towards the school gates. “Say, ZhouDu
is quite dumb, right?” WangHao commented, pretending as though he didn’t
care about it, “I really got the shock of my life today; I seriously thought an
earthquake was coming, like Sichuan…”

XiaYao stopped in his tracks all of a sudden, before turning to

WangHao, “WangHao, can you do me a favor?”

The question puzzled WangHao, “What is it?”

“If something like this happened again, please stop him for me.”

WangHao knew who XiaYao was referring to. He replied to him after a
slight pause, “Don’t blame me for what I’m about to say next; if I knew ZhouDu
was going to find you then, I definitely would have stopped him.” XiaYao
nodded as he continued, “You did the right thing.”

WangHao sighed, “But I don’t think I would be able to stop him anyway.
Did you know? Once he heard that you were still inside, he raced up the block
straight away. I have no idea what the two of you are fighting about, but I
guess it’s the reason why ZhouDu seems to be gloomy the past few days.
XiaYao, just forgive him if he said anything wrong. He isn’t good with
words since young.”

“I’m not angry at him.” XiaYao couldn’t tell WangHao about it. He
assumed that ZhouDu would keep ignoring him after that day.

“That’s good then. Go on and reconcile if that’s so. I don’t feel good too
when seeing you two being on bad terms with each other.”
293 Report
XiaYao gave a “Mn” as a reply. As they were out of school by then, they
parted ways after WangHao waved goodbye to XiaYao.

When XiaYao’s mother returned home at night, she told XiaYao,

“ZhouDu’s parents visited our home in the afternoon.” “They

visited our home?”

XiaYao’s mother sat beside XiaYao, “They wanted to invite us for dinner
tomorrow and insisted no matter how I refused.”

“Is it because of my bone marrow donation?”

“Yeah,” XiaYao’s mother ran her hand through her hair at the side of her
ear while continuing, “Didn’t ZhouDu’s parents let him recognize me
as his godmother when we were at the hospital room then? ZhouDu’s
mother said that she was in confinement recently, and so they haven’t had
the time to visit us. Since she is out of confinement now, she decided to
invite us for dinner and let ZhouDu recognize me as his godmother

“Hah…” XiaYao’s mom sighed, “I’m not qualified to be ZhouDu

godmother. If not for you…”

“Mom,” XiaYao interrupted his mother, “it’s alright. Since they have
invited us, there’s no harm going over for a meal. Or else, they will keep
feeling bad about it. If you don’t want to be ZhouDu’s godmother, we
can just tell them.” Finding what XiaYao said quite reasonable, XiaYao’s
mother nodded in agreement.

When the school ended in the afternoon the next day, ZhouDu’s father
drove his car to the school. Both XiaYao and ZhouDu sat in the back seat.
While driving, ZhouDu’s father informed XiaYao, “Your mom is already in
the restaurant and chatting with ZhouDu’s mom. I’ve driven here to bring
you over.”
294 Report
“Thank you, Uncle Zhou.” XiaYao thanked him politely.

“There’s no need for thanks.” ZhouDu’s dad laughed, “We should be the
ones thanking you. I’m serious, we are so lucky to have you as ZhouDu’s

“I’m lucky as well to be able to get to know ZhouDu.”

Astonished, ZhouDu turned over and glanced at XiaYao. However, instead

of looking at him, XiaYao kept his eyes fixed to the front. The wheels of the car
rolled to a stop in front of the restaurant. The staff at the doorway hurried
over to open the car door for them. When XiaYao entered the private dining
room upstairs, he heard his mother chatting merrily with ZhouDu’s mother.

“Oh, YaoYao is here.” ZhouDu’s mom got up straight away and pulled
XiaYao over to the seat between herself and XiaYao’s mom, before
instructing the wait staff at the side, “You can serve the food now.”
Meanwhile, ZhouDu sat opposite of XiaYao.

“Actually, I should have paid both of you a visit earlier on. But well, as you
know, Elder Sis, my daughter’s condition isn’t quite good. Sorry for
delaying this visit.” ZhouDu’s mother spoke politely while helping to pour
XiaYao some water.

“Auntie, you don’t have to do that.” XiaYao took over the teapot in haste.

ZhouDu’s dad smacked his son’s back, “Look at my silly boy. Don’t you
know you should greet your godmother?” ZhouDu, who was spying on
XiaYao then, swiftly rose up and greeted XiaYao’s mom respectfully,
“Godmother.” He was about to sit down when his father added, “I
remembered XiaYao being a few months older than ZhouDu. ZhouDu,
XiaYao will be your elder brother from now on, got it?” After a glance towards
XiaYao, ZhouDu nodded.

“Alright,” Since the dishes were served by that time, ZhouDu’s
295 Report
mom called out, “Let’s eat up. We can talk after dinner.”

XiaYao remained silent during the meal. Only after everyone was full did
ZhouDu’s mother cried out, as though something just came to her mind, “I’ve
left the present for XiaYao at home.”

“ZhouDu,” she instructed her son, “why don’t you get it with
XiaYao?” ZhouDu hurried from his seat, “I can get it by myself.”
ZhouDu’s mom glared at his son in exasperation. Surprisingly, XiaYao stood
up as well, “Let me go with you.”

ZhouDu’s mom flashed a satisfied smile once she heard that, before
waving at them, “The present is in your dad’s study room. Hurry along.”
She turned to XiaYao’s mom beside her and started chit-chatting, “Elder
Sis, let’s stroll around after dinner, alright? Do you know how much weight I
gained during my confinement? I can’t even wear the clothes I used to

After getting off the taxi, XiaYao and ZhouDu walked towards Zhou family’s
mansion. ZhouDu’s back was as stiff as a post. This was the first time
ZhouDu was alone with XiaYao ever since their fight. He was nervous and
uneasy, clueless as to how he should break the ice with XiaYao. XiaYao
glanced at the silent ZhouDu next to him, stopping his footsteps
abruptly, “ZhouDu.” ZhouDu turned over immediately and gazed steadily at
XiaYao. “About yesterday…thank you.” XiaYao continued.

“I…” ZhouDu balled his hands into fists, took a deep breath and looked at
XiaYao, “I want to apologize to you.” The tangerine yellow rays from the
street lamp landed on the shoulders of the two boys. XiaYao looked at
ZhouDu without a word.

“I shouldn’t have yelled at you; I shouldn’t have lost my temper at you,

much less shatter your phone. XiaYao, I’m sorry; it’s all my fault. I’ve been
feeling really guilty the past two days; I’m afraid you’re
296 Report
going to ignore me forever.” The tall boy with a height of over 1.8 meters
started choking up in the middle of his apology.

ZhouDu fished out a folded construction paper from his shirt pocket
while sniffing. Under the faint yellow lights, he opened the paper slowly—it
was the self-criticism letter ZhouDu written during the past few nights. By the
time ZhouDu finished reading the letter, XiaYao was sick at heart.

In truth, he didn’t blame ZhouDu at all about the incident then. The moment
he saw ZhouDu in the ice cream shop, he knew ZhouDu was definitely
peeved. The things ZhouDu said to him afterward did pierce his heart,
but compared to that, he was more fearful that ZhouDu would stop liking
him. However, ZhouDu’s actions yesterday made him think long and hard
when he got back home. Perhaps in ZhouDu’s heart, he wasn’t all that

Seeing ZhouDu still had a guilty expression plastered on his face, XiaYao
hooked his arm around ZhouDu’s neck and planted a kiss on his lips. ZhouDu
widened his eyes, finding the situation unbelievable. After a light peck on the
lips, XiaYao pulled his arm back. ZhouDu stared at XiaYao, stupefied.
“Let’s go get the present,” XiaYao spoke in embarrassment.

“A- Alright.” ZhouDu’s ears redden in an instant. After walking a few

steps, ZhouDu asked suddenly, “Did you kiss me just now?” Only then did he
seem to start reacting to it.

“Mn.” The straightforward question thrown to XiaYao painted his face

bright red at once.

“Does this mean that you aren’t angry at me?” “Mn.”

“So, does what you said in the past still count?” ZhouDu turned his head,
giving XiaYao a helpless gaze.
297 Report
“What do you mean?”

“Well,” ZhouDu was a little embarrassed, “can I still kiss you when no one is
around?” He stared at XiaYao restlessly, terrified at the thought of
rejection. “Yes,” XiaYao muttered. ZhouDu couldn’t stop the corner of his
lips from perking up.

XiaYao slowed his footsteps down, before turning to ZhouDu,

“ZhouDu, you don’t actually have to pay any mind to Fang Zeyu. You’re
the only one I like.” No matter if it’s during my past life or my current life, you
will still be the one I like.

ZhouDu stood in front of XiaYao, feeling slightly aggrieved as he replied,

“This was the exact place you said to me that you didn’t like me last time. You
are only attracted to me because of my looks and grades. Though I don’t
know how well that Fang Zeyu scores, his looks aren’t really ugly. I’m
scared that you might turn your nose up at me when you meet someone
better than me.”

Little did XiaYao know, ZhouDu would be afraid of XiaYao turning his
nose up at him too. “ZhouDu,” XiaYao answered ZhouDu arduously,
“there’s definitely someone better than you in the world. But they aren’t you.
No matter how great they are, the only one I like is you, and only you.”

XiaYao’s confession made ZhouDu’s heart leap in joy. He couldn’t stop

himself from taking XiaYao into his arms, as he repeated softly, “I like you too;
you’re the only one I like, too. I won’t ever anger you again.”

found out the gift his mother bought for Xia Yao was a
new cell phone. He finally understood his mother’s intentions; she
purposefully asked Xia Yao to accompany him to get the gift so that he could
have a chance to apologize to Xia Yao.

October passed in a blink of an eye, November came with a genuine

clear and refreshing autumn weather.

After the second period of the afternoon ended, Wang Hao kicked the little
fatty away, then he came closer to Xia Yao and whispered, “Tomorrow is
Zhou Du’s birthday, did you know?”

Xia Yao had been in love with Zhou Du for so many years, and then lived
together with him for so long—of course he knew about Zhou Du’s
birthday. However, when Wang Hao asked him like this, he could only

“I’m sure that if Zhou Du knows, he will start acting up again. I have an
idea; hey hey, care to listen?”

Xia Yao asked, “What is it?”

Wang Hao saw that Zhou Du wasn’t in the classroom, so he came closer
to Xia Yao and lowered his voice, “I read from the news that there’s going to
be a meteor shower tomorrow, how about we go to the outskirts then to
celebrate Zhou Du’s birthday? That way we can also watch the meteor
shower while at it. It will be very romantic.”

“A meteor shower?”

“That’s right, we can also drag Zhang Yang along. Geez, I don’t know if
that little brat took some bad medicine lately or something, but he didn’t pay
attention to me at all.”

Xia Yao turned his head and looked at Zhang Yang’s direction. He noticed
Zhang Yang was looking at him with an expressionless face, with a trace
of…ill intention in his eyes.

Xia Yao thought he must have misread it, so he turned around and
continued talking to Wang Hao, “At what time should the meteor shower

“Around 11pm, or later.”

“That’s too late.”

“It’s fine.” Wang Hao laughed, “We have a tent; I have never camped
a night outside in the wild before. I’m so excited just from the thought.”

Xia Yao hesitated, “I should go home and inform my mother first.” “Of course!”

Wang Hao patted Xia Yao’s shoulder, “But you should

personally tell Zhou Du. If I were the one asking him to go see the
meteor shower, he would definitely ignore me.” “I

should tell him?”

Wang Hao nodded repeatedly.

Xia Yao pondered a bit, “I will try, but if he doesn’t want to go, then I can’t do
anything about it.”

“If it’s you asking him, he’ll definitely agree! Except his mother, Zhou Du
only listens to you.”

Hearing him say that, Xiao Yao couldn’t help but blush.

After school, in the afternoon, Zhou Du and Xia Yao walked back home
side by side. When they came around an empty alley, Xia Yao stopped and
said to Zhou Du, “Tomorrow is your birthday.”

Zhou Du glanced at Xia Yao and pretended he didn’t care, “Yeah, but I
only see my birthday like any other day, you don’t have to give me anything.”

Xia Yao paused before continuing, “Then, how about we go watch the
meteor shower tomorrow night?”

“Watching a meteor shower?”

Xia Yao nodded, “Yeah, but we will just go to the outskirts, and will probably
have to camp outside for a night.”

Zhou Du’s heart leapt with joy; the two of them camping outside in the
outskirts? Just the thought of it was enough to give him a thrill.

“If you want to go, then let’s go,” he acted as if anything was fine.

Xia Yao saw his expression and thought that Zhou Du had no
interest in it, so he continued, “It’s fine; if you don’t want to go, we won’t go.”

“Let’s go!” Zhou Du hurriedly said. “Why are you like this? Saying let’s go
and then let’s not go, going back and forth. If you already said let’s go,
then we must definitely go.”

Seeing how Zhou Du changed his expression so fast, Xia Yao

nodded his head and said, “Then, let’s go.”

Zhou Du proudly smirked.

The next night, when he finally arrived to the outskirts, Zhou Du noticed
both Wang Hao and Zhang Yang had been already waiting there; his
expression turned dark. “What are you two doing here?!”
301 Report
Wang Hao excitedly rushed toward Zhou Du, but he was kicked away
by Zhou Du. They chose a wetland park in the outskirts, there were cars
passing by ten meters away from the park, so it wasn’t that remote.

Of course, Wang Hao’s parents didn’t feel at ease letting their baby son
camp outside in the outskirts all alone. Only after they learned that Zhou Du
was to come later, they let a chauffeur-and-also-a- bodyguard drive
Wang Hao there.

On the surface, the chauffeur pretend to listen to Wang Hao and drove
his car away, but in fact, he drove his car under a big tree next to the road only
a little further, ready to hide in the car and sleep for the night.

He was the baby son of Wang family, of course they wouldn’t rest easy
seeing him staying outside alone for a night.

That chauffeur was a military veteran, dealing with some thugs was no
problem. He stopped at the area where he could see Wang Hao and his
friends clearly, so that he could quickly run to them if something

“Of course, to see the meteor shower together! Also, to celebrate your
birthday while we are at it. So? Didn’t Xia Yao tell you about it?”

Xia Yao definitely had told him, but Zhou Du thought it was only him and
Xia Yao watching the meteor shower. He angrily stared at Wang Hao and
threw the tent which had been prepared in advance onto the ground.

Zhou Du knew his Xia Yao wouldn’t have camping equipment, so he

deliberately brought a sleeping bag for two, thinking that the two of them
could sleep together for the night.

Seeing Zhou Du take out only one tent, Wang Hao clicked his
tongue, “Zhou Du, you are such a stingy man, you didn’t even

prepare a tent for Xia Yao! Lucky for you, I have come fully prepared!”

He pointed at the tent next to him and said to Xia Yao, “Tada~! I have
prepared four different tents, haha, each of us can sleep in one!”

He pulled Xia Yao over enthusiastically, and he spoke as he picked up the

tent, “They are all simple-structured tents, so they can be easily built, and
there’s absolutely no problem with being protected against the cold. But I
think no one will be able to sleep tonight, hahaha.”

Zhou Du was so angry, he regretted not being able to kick Wang Hao to

Zhang Yang remained silent; he looked at the tent on the ground which
Zhou Du brought, and he pointed at it, “Let’s put this up first, who knows if we
need them tonight.”

Zhou Du mulled it over; he thought Zhang Yang’s words seemed to make

sense. He must sleep together with Xia Yao tonight no matter what. After all,
as long as Zhang Yang didn’t think anything was wrong, he didn’t care
any less about how Wang Hao felt.

Wang Hao was so excited, he looked just like a monkey. A moment ago, he
wanted to set up the barbecue rack, but was stopped by Zhang Yang.
After a while, he wanted to set up the telescope.

Zhang Yang saw that Wang Hao had no intention of setting up his tent
himself, so he sighed and began to prepare a place to sleep for Wang Hao.

It was a little over 9pm when everyone had finished preparing. Wang
Hao took out a big bag of snacks, then pulled out a cake and brought it in
front of Zhou Du, “Come here, blow out the candles and make a wish.”

Zhou Du was so annoyed by him, he blew the candle to get it over with,
then waved his hand to let him take the cake away.

“You haven’t made a wish yet! Quick!” Wang Hao insisted.

“Can you stop bothering me?!”

“Hurry up!”

Zhou Du had no choice but to close his eyes and make a wish.

Only then did Wang Hao finally let him go. But he didn’t stay quiet for long,
as he seemed to remember something, and shouted, “Oh damn! I think it
was making a wish first before blowing the candle.”

“If you keep forcing me, I’m going home!” Zhou Du snapped at him, and
after that he sadly sat down next to Zhang Yang; he picked up a bag of potato
chips and stuffed his face like a hamster.

Zhang Yang raised his hand, wanting to pat his head, but his hand stopped
midway; he stood up and increased the distance with Wang Hao, then went
to the telescope alone.

Wang Hao found no-one beside him, and he hurriedly follow Zhang Yang.

Both of them left, leaving Zhou Du and Xia Yao behind.

Zhou Du waited until both of them were out of sight, he then came closer to
Xia Yao, “Are you cold?”

Xia Yao was wearing a thick coat; he shook his head, “I’m not.” “Oh,” Zhou

Du murmured.

Xia Yao thought for a bit. “Are you cold?” he asked.

Zhou Du wanted to say he also wasn’t, but he saw that Xia Yao was looking
at him with concern, so he switched his answer, “I’m ok right
304 Report
now, but I will definitely be cold when we sleep tonight.”

“Is your sleeping bag not warm enough? I heard Wang Hao say that the
sleeping bag he gave me can keep you warm. Shall we change?”

Zhou Du originally wanted Xia Yao to say, ‘If you are cold, how about
sleeping together,’ but he didn’t expect Xia Yao to advise him to switch to
another sleeping bag.

“No need,” he said gloomily.

Xia Yao looked at him and said, “Zhou Du, are you afraid of the dark?”

Zhou Du thought, I’m a man at 1.8 meters in height, why would I be afraid
of the dark ah? He was about to deny when he suddenly came up with an
idea, “That’s right, and it’s quite scary in the wilderness.”

“Don’t worry.” Xia Yao continued, “If you are afraid of dark, Wang Hao said
you can sleep with him tonight.”

Zhou Du angrily puffed out his cheeks, turning his head to the other

Xia Yao laughed behind his back. He patted Zhou Du’s shoulder,
“What happened? You don’t want to sleep with Wang Hao?”

Zhou Du moved a little further away, and continued ignoring Xia Yao.

Xia Yao teased him intentionally, “Zhou Du.” He poked Zhou Du’s back,
“Why are you ignoring me?”

Zhou Du turned his head and glared at him.

Xia Yao sighed and said, “Actually, I’m afraid to be alone as well,
305 Report

Zhou Du’s eyes instantly overflowed with joy; he suppressed his

imaginary tail that was about to reach the sky and then glanced and Xia Yao,
“You are already a grown man and you are still afraid to sleep alone.
Forget it, I’m your boyfriend now, I have to try my best to help you sleep.”

Xia Yao laughed in his heart, “Thank you so much.”

“You’re welcome,” Zhou Du waved his hand.

Xia Yao suddenly came closer, and whispered into Zhou Du’s ear,
“Zhou Du, let’s kiss.”

He didn’t wait for Zhou Du to react, as he laid the kiss on his mouth
first. Zhou Du looked at Xia Yao in front of him in a daze. When he was
about to give one back, Wang Hao just happen to be heading back to their

“Cough cough!” He saw Zhou Du’s nervous appearance toward Xia Yao and
he coughed several times, “What are you doing? Don’t just ignore
everything just because everywhere else is dark.”

Xia Yao stood up in embarrassment and stepped to the side while Zhou Du

around with the telescope. Out of curiosity, he went there to take a look.

He had just gone up to Zhang Yang and the man suddenly opened his
mouth and asked, “Are you gay?”

Xia Yao suddenly felt a chill inside his heart.

finally able to see stars sparkling through the darkness of the sky.

It was 10pm at the moment; the late autumn night was especially cold.
The four of them were chatting around the heat lamp.

“So cold.” Wang Hao shrunk his neck. The cold wind went under his clothes
through the collar, he only wore a thin coat tonight.

Zhang Yang saw him shivering; he couldn’t help but take off his coat and
give it to him. Wang Hao saw he was about to take off his coat, he quickly
said, “Are you stupid? You’re going to freeze to death without a coat.”

Hearing him say that, Zhang Yang silently wore his coat again. Before
he pulled his zipper up, Wang Hao suddenly fell into his arms and hugged his
waist, “Come here, let me borrow your chest to warm myself up.”

Zhang Yang immediately went as stiff as a rock, he didn’t even dare

make a single move. Xia Yao covered his face; he couldn’t bear to watch
them directly.

Wang Hao couldn’t stop his hand from touching Zhang Yang’s
waistline. He clicked his tongue and praised, “Such a tight waist, do you
have abs?”

Zhang Yang held back his anger, and didn’t dare say a word. Wang Hao
gave him a wicked smile, “Come here, let me see if you have a six-pack or

His two claws were itching to do a bad deed. Zhang Yang couldn’t bear it
anymore; he pushed Wang Hao away and then stood up, “I’m going for a

Wang Hao came closer to the heating lamp; he tore open a snack packet
and asked Xia Yao, “Want some?”

Xia Yao shook his head. Zhou Du looked at the time displayed on
308 Report
his phone, then he looked up to the sky. “Didn’t you say the meteor shower
starts at 11pm?”

Wang Hao couldn’t care any less, “What time is it? Why are you in such a

“It’s already 11pm.”

Shocked, Wang Hao quickly looked up at the sky. There was only an
endless pit of darkness, with only a few stars sparkling.

“Maybe… later?” he asked with uncertainty.

“Let’s wait a bit longer,” Xia Yao helped him.

Zhou Du turned his head around to look at Xia Yao. He moved closer,
“Are you cold?”

Xia Yao replied, “I’m fine.”

Seeing Zhang Yang wasn’t there, Zhou Du hugged Xia Yao from behind,
and he even looked at Wang Hao with satisfaction.

Wang Hao couldn’t stop himself from mumbling, “Those dog couples.”
Then, he turned his head away.

The four of them waited until it was nearly dawn, but there were no signs of
the meteor shower.

“Mother-fucker, I can’t wait anymore!” Zhou Du stood up from the ground

with force, “So tired! I’m going to sleep.” He signaled Xia Yao with his eyes.

Wang Hao, still staring at sky like an idiot, muttered, “It can’t be, the news
said that there was going to be a meteor shower. No way, something must
have blocked it from falling, I will keep waiting.”

Zhang Yang swept his eyes across Zhou Du and Xia Yao, then coldly
said, “If you two are sleepy, go to sleep first. I’ll wait with him.”
309 Report
Zhou Du only waited for him to say it, so he lightly nudged Xia Yao with his
leg and said, “Hey, aren’t you going to sleep?”

Xia Yao slowly stood up from the ground, and then went with Zhou Du to
their tent.

The light was on inside Zhou Du’s tent; he bent down to pulled open
the zipper to the entrance, he then said to Xia Yao, “Hurry, come inside,
it’s dead cold outside.”

Not until they had left the heat lamp did they realize the late summer
night was this cold. Xia Yao couldn’t stand the cold; hearing Zhou Du say that,
he quickly went inside. After Zhou Du had stepped in, the space became
significantly smaller. Xia Yao wanted to give him some space, but his arm
was being held back by Zhou Du.

“This is a tent for two, it’s enough for the two of us.”

After taking off his coat and getting into his sleeping bag, Zhou Du’s tiny
heart was thumping faster than that of a rabbit. Xia Yao was the same; he
didn’t know where to look, so he had no choice but to lower his eyelids, and
he didn’t speak a word.

Zhou Du mustered up courage, he raised his hand and touched Xia Yao’s
cheek, then said in a hoarse voice, “Xia Yao, you are so beautiful.”

Xia Yao’s face immediately turned red.

Zhou Du moved closer to him. His ears were bright red. He

approached Xia Yao and said, “You haven’t said happy birthday to me.”

Xia Yao finally remembered he hadn’t said it to Zhou Du. “But your birthday
is already over,” he whispered.

Zhou Du moved closer again, his eyes gleamed as he looked at Xia Yao, “I,
I want to do that with you again.” His face was hot like a
310 Report
sticky rice cake even before he finished saying it.

Xia Yao stuttered, “Wh-what?”

“Yes,” Zhou Du got out of his sleeping bag and squeezed into Xia Yao’s.
“The adult stuff.”

Xia Yao suddenly understood what he was talking about. Last time, at the
park when he took Zhou Du to the small grove, he had said they could do
some stuff only adults could do.

With their last experience, Zhou Du familliarly followed Xia Yao’s

waistline down.

Xia Yao’s breathing became heavier. “Wang Hao and Zhang Yang are still
outside,” he whispered.

“We can stay quiet,” Zhou Du blew into Xia Yao’s ear.

Xia Yao’s waist went soft all of sudden.The light inside the tent was still on;
even though it was a warm orange light, Xia Yao was still embarrassed,
“You should turn the light off.”

Zhou Du pretended he didn’t hear anything, he buried his head into Xia
Yao’s neck and kissed there.

“Zhou Du.” Xia Yao gasped, “Turn off the light.”

“I won’t.” Zhou Du raised his head to look into Xia Yao’s eyes,
“Why should I turn it off?”

Xia Yao got embarrassed being look at. He lowered his eyes, put his
hand in front of Zhou Du’s chest and said, “I, I’m not used to it.”

In the previous life, everytime he did it with Zhou Du, the room was pitch
dark. He had never turned on the light because he was afraid Zhou Du
would put on a forced or disgusted expression.
311 Report
Ra: I just wanna say, they really should turn off the light …Their
silhouettes can be seen through the tent…

Zhou Du used his other hand and hugged Xia Yao, then gave him a peck on
his forehead, “I want to see you.” He slowly stroked Xia Yao’s face, his
eyes, his nose, and then stopped on his lips. “I want to see you,” he repeated
as he lowered his head to kiss Xia Yao.

It didn’t take long for Wang Hao to gradually become sleepier; he raised
his head and looked at Zhou Du’s tent. Suddenly, a gust of cold wind
passed by; he shivered and talked to Zhang Yang, “We should go to sleep
as well, I guess I was tricked by that news.”

Zhang Yang nodded and stood up.

Wang Hao grabbed Zhang Yang’s arm to stand up. He patted the grass
off his butt, then smiled brightly at Zhang Yang, “Good night.”

Zhang Yang didn’t say anything and just looked at him. When Wang
Hao was about to go to his tent, he suddenly spoke, “Wang Hao, when you
sleep, remember to never look outside of the tent.”

After he said that, he just went back to his tent. Wang Hao felt nothing
at first, but after he went into his tent, when he saw the trees silhouettes falling
on his tent, swaying back and forth slightly, he couldn’t help but snuggle
inside the sleeping bag.

The more he recalled Zhang Yang’s sentence earlier, the more afraid
he was. He kept worrying about something outside the tent.

It was late at night, only the wind would sometimes breeze by. In the end,
Wang Hao couldn’t stand it anymore. He opened the door of the tent and ran
toward Zhou Du’s tent with his pillow in his hand.

Zhou Du was burying his head in Xia Yao’s neck as he gasped

heavily. Xia Yao was moving his hands up and down, rubbing. Zhou Du held
Xia Yao’s waist tighter and tighter.
312 Report
“Zhou Du——” Wang Hao, who stood outside of the tent, suddenly
whispered. It scared Zhou Du enough to make him flaccid.

Fortunately, the lamp in the tent was off at this time. Xia Yao
immediately stopped his movements and his breathed in nervously.

“Zhou Du, I’m scared, can I sleep with you?” Wang Hao hugged his pillow,
pitifully saying that to Zhou Du who was inside the tent.

“Go away!” Zhou Du angrily roared from inside the tent.

Wang Hao knew Zhou Du had a bad temper, so he pitifully hugged his
pillow and looked at Zhang Yang’s tent with expectation. Zhang Yang didn’t
seem like he had gone to sleep yet, he could see through the tent that he was
sitting inside.

Wang Hao hugged his pillow and stood outside of Zhang Yang’s tent; he
continued pretending to be pitiful and said, “Zhang Yang, I’m scared, can I
sleep with you?”

The man inside paused for a bit, he then opened the tent’s door and said
to Wang Hao, who was standing outside pitifully, “This is a single tent.”

Wang Hao rushed in as quick as he could, he stuck to Zhang Yang and

said, “It’s fine, it’s fine, we can get warmer this way.” He put down his
pillow next to Zhang Yang, patted the sleeping bag and said, “Come on,
let’s go to sleep.” Then, he quickly snuggled in.

Zhang Yang stared at Wang Hao’s back with hidden intentions for a while
before following him and squeezing in. Wang Hao’s behind was facing Zhang
Yang, but when he found out his face was about to kiss the side of the tent, he
quickly turned his body so he was face to face with Zhang Yang. Zhang Yang
was staring at the back of Wang Hao’s head in silence originally, but when
the person suddenly turned around, the face that make his heart jump was
right in front of him.
313 Report
Zhang Yang’s heart nearly stopped beating; he stared at Wang Hao’s
sleeping face for a while before slowly closing his eyes.

As long as he could keep this man by his side, even if it meant staying
as ordinary friends, it was still the biggest honor of his life.

The next day, except for Wang Hao, all three of them had caught a cold.
Wang Hao was gloating at Zhou Du’s misfortune, but ended up being mocked
by Zhou Du, “Looks like the saying ‘idiots can’t catch colds’ is true.” Wang
Hao’s face went livid at once.

To Zhou Du, the only inconvenience the cold brought was that he couldn’t
kiss Xia Yao, since both of them had a blocked nose. At the moment, Zhou
Du and Xia Yao were in the last toilet cubicle. Xia Yao pressed his hands onto
Zhou Du’s chest, a dash of red in the corner of his eyes, “We have to get
back to the classroom.”

It was the first time Zhou Du kissed Xia Yao in school, so he found it
thrilling. He had his eyes fixed onto Xia Yao’s lips, which were slightly
reddened from the kiss, while mumbling in discontentment, “We only kissed
for 30 seconds.” Xia Yao replied nasally, “That’s because both of us
caught a cold.” Once Zhou Du heard that, he lowered his head, giving Xiao
Yao a peck on the lips as he muttered, “I hate colds.” Xia Yao chuckled

The days were getting colder and colder; the first snowfall descended
together with the final exam. Since Xia Yao didn’t expect it would be
snowing, he only realized that he forgot his umbrella when he was about
to head home after the exam. It wasn’t snowing heavily outside. Xia Yao
turned to look at Zhou Du, who was in the classroom, and noticed he was
already by his side. “I’ve brought my umbrella. Let me send you home.” Zhou
Du smiled at him, revealing a set of pearly white teeth.

The third years finished their exams the last; the first years and
315 Report
second years were already in their holidays. Currently, the school wasn’t
as bustling as usual. Zhou Du hugged Xia Yao’s shoulders, holding him in
his arms, as the both of them sauntered out of the school. “Now that the
winter holiday is here, we won’t be able to see each other every day.” Zhou Du
exhaled out a puff of white air once his mouth opened

Although Xia Yao couldn’t bear to part with him as well, he wasn’t willing to
express his emotions. He merely comforted Zhou Du, “It’s alright. The
school will reopen on the 8th; it’s just a few days.”

“Just a few days?” Zhou Du stared at Xia Yao, sulking, “But I want to spend
everyday with you, even during the weekends.” Once those words were
blurted out from Zhou Du, Xia Yao casted a panicked glance all over the
surrounding. Fortunately, as it was snowing, passersby were hurrying
along their way and too busy to notice the two of them. Zhou Du continued
with his voice lowered, “I want to enter university right away.”

Remembering that the universities they attended situated in different

cities, Xia Yao uttered gloomily, “We might be separated once we entered

Zhou Du grasped Xia Yao’s shoulders tightly before stopping and fuming
at Xia Yao, “Who said so? We have to get into the same university.”

Xia Yao shook his head as he answered, “It’s impossible, Zhou Du.
Judging by our grades, it’s impossible for us to get in the same

Zhou Du was stumped for a bit. After a glimpse at Xia Yao, he

muttered to himself, “If the worst comes to the worst, I’ll just score a bit lower
then. I want to be in the same university as you in any case.” Hearing that,
Xia Yao’s expression became stern immediately. “Zhou Du,” this was the first
time Xia Yao called Zhou Du in such a serious manner, “if you really did
score lower on purpose to be
316 Report
together with me, I would feel really guilty about it.”

Zhou Du asked, “Don’t you want to be together with me?”

“I do want to be with you, but life is unpredictable. We can never be certain

that we will always be together. Do you mean that you will stop loving me if
we don’t live together?”

Xia Yao’s rhetorical question made Zhou Du answer at once, “Of course

“Same goes for me.” Xia Yao tilted his head and looked at Zhou Du, “The
distance between us would make me miss you even more, but can never
stop my love for you.”

The abrupt confession stunned Zhou Du. He inched over to Xia Yao,
his blush spreading to the tips of his ears, “What should I do? I really want to
kiss you now.” Xia Yao turned his head to one side purposefully, feigning
ignorance of what he had just heard. “But even if we won’t be in the same
university, we can try to get into universities in the same city. Xia
Yao, which university are you planning on entering?” Zhou Du asked.

Xia Yao replied after thinking for a bit, “I want to get into W
University in B City.” He had always liked English. Failing to get into W
University was a regret he’d always had, so in his current life, he wanted to
try his best to get in.

“Then I’ll just get into S University in B City.” Zhou Du’s tone was brimming
with confidence. S University was the third best university in the country.
Xia Yao felt that Zhou Du had the capability of entering it. “It’s a
promise then,” Zhou Du looked at Xia Yao with sparkles in his eyes, “let’s
go to B City together.”

Xia Yao smiled at him as he promised, “Alright.”

When the two of them reached the school gates, Xia Yao noticed his
mother was standing there with an umbrella in her hand, glancing
317 Report
around. Xia Yao hurried over in an instant and yelled out, “Mom!”

Xia Yao’s mother shifted the umbrella to shield her son once she saw
him, “I realized you didn’t bring your umbrella along, so I came over to bring it
to you. But I’m not allowed inside.” Xia Yao kneaded his mother’s chilly
hands, tears threatening to fall due to the heartache he felt for her.

“Godmother.” Zhou Du walked over as well to greet her. Xia Yao’s mother’s
sight could only reach to her son’s shoulders. Thus, Xia Yao took over the
umbrella on his mother’s hands instantly and helped to hold it for her. “It is
snowing today, so I didn’t open my stall; don’t worry.” Xia Yao’s mother
gave her son a pat on the shoulders, before turning to Zhou Du, “Do you want
to come over for dinner?” Zhou Du was shocked momentarily. He didn’t
expect Xia Yao’s mother to invite him, so he nodded immediately.

Days are short in winter; by the time Xia Yao’s mother finished
preparing the dinner, the rows of streetlights outside had already been lit
up. The rich fragrance from the chicken soup filled the air of the tiny house.
Xia Yao helped serve the dishes and set the table. Zhou Du wanted to
help out too, but was stopped by Xia Yao’s mother, “Since you are
visiting us, you’re our guest. How could we let guests help out?”

Zhou Du smiled, “Godmother, that’s not true. I’m your son too; there’s
nothing wrong in helping you, right?” He took over the dishes from Xia Yao’s
mother without waiting for a reply.

Xia Yao’s mother wiped her hands on her apron, her lips curling up gently
to form a smile, “Alright, let’s wash our hands and start eating.”

After dinner, Zhou Du and Xia Yao took upon themselves to clean up.
Noting that the both of them didn’t want her to get involved, Xia Yao’s mother
could only sit by the side. When the cleanup was done, Xia Yao’s mother
glanced at the weather outside and frowned, “It’s
318 Report
still snowing and the sky has gotten dark. Do you want to call our family
over to fetch you back? I should have thought this through. Why did I call
you over for dinner during such a snowy day?”

“It’s alright,” Zhou Du picked up Xia Yao’s cup on the table and took a
sip, “I’m a man, so there’s nothing to be afraid of. I’ll go back myself later.” Xia
Yao’s mother deepened her frown when she saw how little Zhou Du wore,
“Perhaps you can share a bed with Xia Yao tonight. I don’t know if your
parents will agree to it though. It is too cold outside; with what you are wearing
now, you are definitely going to catch a cold on the way back.” Zhou Du
choked on the sip of water, coughing vehemently with a beet-red face.
Feeling that her idea was a bit too sudden as well, Xia Yao’s mother added
on right away, “It is just a suggestion. I think it’s better for you to contact
your parents.”

Zhou Du peeked at Xia Yao guiltily, before setting the cup back onto the
table and whispering, “Can I really stay overnight?”

Xia Yao’s mother smiled at Zhou Du, “So long as you don’t find it too
squeezy. Well you know, our house is small, Xia Yao has always been
sleeping on a single-sized bed.”

“Not at all, not at all,” Zhou Du responded hastily. Truth be told, Xia Yao’s
mother was quite fond of Zhou Du, finding him handsome and well-behaved.
Xia Yao was currently boiling water in the kitchen. As their house was tiny, the
conversation between Xia Yao’s mother and Zhou Du was crystal clear to
him. He couldn’t stop his face from turning crimson red.

Xia Yao’s mother went to bed after a shower. Before she slept, she still
went over to take a look at the blankets on Xia Yao’s bed, checking if
they were thick enough. To Zhou Du, it was all the better if the blanket was
thinner, as Xia Yao would definitely shrink into his arms if he felt chilly.

Only Zhou Du and Xia Yao were left in the narrow living room when
319 Report
Xia Yao’s mother went to sleep. Xia Yao took out a basin and filled half of it
with warm water, “Why don’t you soak your feet before bed?” Zhou Du’s
line of sight had never strayed away from Xia Yao once. His stares
followed Xia Yao wherever he went, as those of a large dog eyeing on a
bone. Xia Yao pulled out a small stool from somewhere, setting it beside
the basin and asked Zhou Du, “Mind if the two of us soak our feet together?”
Of course, Zhou Du wouldn’t mind.

After the foot bath, Zhou Du helped pour the water away and place the stool
back. Zhou Du’s eyes glimmered as he eyed Xia Yao, “Let go to sleep.”

Embarrassed by Zhou Du’s staring, Xia Yao’s ears burned red, “Why
don’t you go to bed first? I think I’ll wait for a bit before—” Xia Yao was hauled
into his room by Zhou Du before he could finish his sentence.

“It’s too cold to sleep alone; it’ll be warmer if the two of us sleep
together,” Zhou Du made a perfect excuse for himself.

The bed was indeed too small for both Zhou Du and Xia Yao, but Zhou
Du found it very much to his liking. It would be much better for Zhou Du if the
bed were even smaller, so Xia Yao would have no choice but to sleep in
his arms, unlike now, where there was still space for the two of them to
sleep sideways.

Xia Yao had his back facing Zhou Du. Initially, Zhou Du was rather well-
behaved when he had just gotten into the bed. However, after a while, he
couldn’t resist the urge to shift closer to Xia Yao and whispered Xia
Yao’s name. With a blush, Xia Yao lowered his voice as he whispered to Zhou
Du, “My mom is just beside us.”

Zhou Du laid his hands on Xia Yao’s waist. Seeing that Xia Yao didn’t
display any signs of rejection, he hooked one of his legs over Xia Yao’s leg. ,
he pushed his luck even further, enfolding Xia Yao into his embrace, doing
nothing but silently shower light kisses onto
320 Report
the back of Xia Yao’s neck.

Xia Yao bit on the edge of his pillow as he tried his hardest to steady
his breaths. However, the person behind him had no intentions of
giving him a break. A hand slid into Xia Yao’s shirt, swimming up slowly.
Xia Yao grabbed that mischievous hand and muttered, “Zhou Du, no. My
mom is just beside us.” He kept his volume very low. Zhou Du let Xia
Yao grab his hand without any refusal or word voiced out, still continuing
his kisses on Xia Yao’s nape.

Believing Zhou Du had given up, Xia Yao was about to heave a sigh of relief
when the Zhou Du behind him let out a burst of stifled yet ecstatic pants. Xia
Yao whipped his head around at once to face Zhou Du, only to find out that
the other person’s hand was ‘having fun’ with his lower body. Blood could
almost ooze out from Xia Yao’s scarlet red cheeks. He shot a death glare
at Zhou Du.

Immediately, Zhou Du pouted, “But I can’t bear it any longer.” He

shamelessly pressed his nose against Xia Yao’s own, as he seduced Xia Yao
with an alluring hoarse voice unique to teenage boys, “Please help me, Xia
Yao.” When Xia Yao was just opening his mouth to form a reply, Zhou Du took
the chance to seal his lips, sneaking his tongue in naughtily.

(Please fill the rest of the scene with your own imagination.)

Zhou Du quivered while crawling out of bed. He took some tissues from the
table and helped to wipe Xia Yao’s hands thoroughly. Xia Yao pulled him
back into the blankets, whispering, “Alright, let’s sleep now.”

Zhou Du was over the moon. With his heart swelling in pleasure, he had no
intention of sleeping at all. The two of them shifted their heads close
together, as though whispering sweet nothings to each other.
321 Report
“When we grow up, let’s buy a house and live together.” Zhou Du
murmured tirelessly into Xia Yao’s ears, “Do you like dogs? We can raise a
dog in the future. I can try to learn how to cook too, so when we get off work,
we can cook together. We can also…” his voice grew smaller and smaller.

It was snowing ever more fiercely outside. As Xia Yao listened on to Zhou
Du’s murmurings in his ears, the corner of his lips perked up
unconsciously. The life Zhou Du depicted was too picturesque. Xia Yao
couldn’t help hugging Zhou Du even tighter, so that he could confirm to
himself that the Zhou Du in front of him right then really did exist, and wasn’t
just an incredible dream of his.

It was the start of the winter holidays. After finishing his assignments
in the morning, Xia Yao went over to his mother’s stall in the afternoon.
Although Xia Yao’s mother tried her best to persuade Xia Yao to stay at
home and study, Xia Yao still stubbornly went there every day to help.
Normally, he had to be in class, but since the exams had ended, it was
impossible for him not to help his mother out.

With Xia Yao’s elegant, fair looks, the mere act of standing by the stall
increased the stall’s business rather greatly. Xia Yao’s mother tried chasing
Xia Yao home, not wanting him to feel exhausted, but Xia Yao pushed her
down to sit on the small folding stool, “Mom, it’s not even been ten minutes
since I stood here; not even paper is as weak as that.”

Other stall keepers beside them kept praising Xia Yao’s mother for raising
such a good child. Although Xia Yao’s mother humbly denied the
compliment, she couldn’t hide the joy and pride in her eyes. Xia Yao had
always been a well-behaved child. Despite the difficult life Xia Yao’s mother
endured while bringing him up, never once had she regretted doing so; she
was satisfied with just having such a son in her entire lifetime. She wanted
to earn a bit more money while her body was still healthy so as to help Xia Yao
in his marriage later in his life.

Xia Yao was handing over a packed pancake to an uncle nearby when a
shadow appeared in front of him all of a sudden. When he raised his head
to take a look, he saw that Zhou Du was grinning at him. “Godmother,” Zhou
Du lengthened his neck to greet Xia Yao’s
323 Report
mother, who was sitting in the back.

Xia Yao’s mother got up in a hurry, “Oh my, I didn’t know you were going to
show up; come over and have a seat.” Zhou Du went over at once to help Xia
Yao’s mother back to her seat, before walking to Xia Yao, “I have nothing to
do at home, so I came over to play with Xia Yao.”

“Yao Yao, go on and play with Zhou Du. I can handle the stall by
myself.” Xia Yao’s mother was about to stand up again. Xia Yao turned
over and replied to his mother, “What places can we go in this chilly weather?”
He shifted his sight to Zhou Du, asking, “Where are you planning on going?”
Zhou Du grinned, “Nowhere. Godmother, let Xia Yao and me help you out in
selling pancakes.”

Noticing from Zhou Du’s getup that he didn’t look like someone from an
ordinary family, a nearby auntie asked, “Who is this? Why does he call you
his godmother?” Xia Yao’s mother turned over to explain, “He is my son’s
classmate. I’ve adopted him as my godson.” The people beside her nodded
without asking any further, but their curious gazes still stuck firmly to Zhou

However, as if totally oblivious to the stares, Zhou Du greeted the

customers in front of him cordially. The two hotties caught the eyes of many
young ladies passing by; even if they didn’t make any purchase, they
would still stop over the stall to have a chat with both of them. In just a
moment, Xia Yao’s mother’s store was swamped with a crowd. A hint of
envy could be seen from the surrounding shop owners’ eyes.

Due to the low temperature in winter nights, Xia Yao’s mother closed
her store early. Zhou Du spent the whole afternoon helping out, so
naturally, he followed Xia Yao back to his home to mooch dinner.

As Xia Yao’s mother was busy cooking in the kitchen, Zhou Du stood
by the door and chit-chatted with her. Flatteries poured out of
324 Report
Zhou Du’s mouth with ease, as though he possessed a natural gift of sweet-
talking his elders, “Godmother, I’m not exaggerating about your cooking;
after the dinner here last time, I’ve been thinking about it for quite a few days.”

The praises made Xia Yao’s mother chuckle, “Why? Is your

mother’s cooking bad?”

“I’ve never eaten a meal made by my mom ever since I was born,” Zhou Du
sighed, “my mom said that she is a fairy, and fairies mustn’t cook.”

Xia Yao’s mother arched her eyebrows in amusement when she heard
that, yet a sliver of envy hid in her eyes, “Your mother sure is blessed.”

Zhou Du corrected himself at once, “Which is why your food reminds

me of a mother’s cooking. Godmother, can I come here to eat next time
whenever I’m free?”

“Sure, by all means,” Xia Yao’s mother turned to glance at him. “As long as
you don’t find the meals here to be too plain.”

“Of course I wouldn’t!” Zhou Du walked to Xia Yao’s mother,

requesting shyly, “Godmother, can you teach me how to cook?”

Xia Yao’s mother cast a look of astonishment at him, “You want to learn
how to cook?”

“Yup,” Zhou Du affirmed.

Xia Yao’s mother shook her head while laughing, “If you want to learn
cooking, why not find your family’s chef to teach you? Your family’s chef
is definitely much more skillful than me.” Zhou Du thought, It’s not the
same. The reason why I want to learn cooking from you is so that I can
cook for Xia Yao in the future. Xia Yao’s mother continued, “Look at you,
you’ll definitely pamper your wife in the future. If you learn cooking now, your
fortunate wife will be able
325 Report
to enjoy your meals in the future.” Zhou Du couldn’t stop the corner of his lips
from springing up.

After dinner, Zhou Du started stalling again, unwilling to go home. Noticing

Zhou Du’s motives, Xia Yao told Zhou Du in a hurry before his mother could
speak up, “The sky is getting dark; let me walk with you part of the way to
your home.” He looked for his scarf in preparation to leave while talking.
Zhou Du shot an annoyed glare at him before following behind him

Only two to three worn-out street lights with pale yellow glow
illuminated the area Xia Yao resided in. Seeing that not many
passersby were on the road during winter, Zhou Du boldly stuffed his hand into
the pocket of Xia Yao’s cotton-padded jacket.

Xia Yao’s pointed chin was entirely buried in his scarf. He tilted his head,
casting a glance at Zhou Du, “Why do you keep coming over?” Using his
fingers in the pocket, Zhou Du gave Xia Yao’s hand a hard pinch, “Since you
never come to my home to look for me, for course I have to go over to look
for you.”

Xia Yao stopped in his tracks and lifted his head to take a look at Zhou
Du, “Don’t come over. I’m afraid my mom will find out something is
going on with us.”

Zhou Du’s face darkened with rage immediately. He was just about to storm
off as he raised his foot, but when the promise he made in his self-criticism
letter floated into his mind, he forced his leg down. Xia Yao knew Zhou Du
would be pissed at what he said, so he fished out his handphone and swayed
it around, “We can message or call each other.”

“But I want to meet you face to face.” Zhou Du gave Xia Yao a sulky,
aggrieved reply, “my mind is filled with you every single moment, be it
when I’m doing my homework or eating. I want to touch you, kiss you,
326 Report
“Zhou Du,” Xia Yao interrupted him with a flushed face, “stop it.”

Zhou Du, currently wearing a down coat, pulled Xia Yao into his
embrace as he argued indignantly, “Why can’t I say it out? I’m just going to
say it.” His face inched closer, his warm breath hitting Xia Yao’s face,
“Don’t you miss me?”

Since the two of them donned on thick clothing due to the cold, Xia Yao felt
uncomfortable being huddled up like that. He struggled while answering, “I do
miss you, but we have to control ourselves.” A classic line from a movie
sprang into his mind, “Like is behaving wildly without any control,
whereas love is restrained.”

“I don’t want to be restrained; I want to like you wildly.” After ending

his sentence, Zhou Du lowered down to plant a kiss on Xia Yao’s lips.
Under the dim lights, in the dark alleyway, being together with the man in his
arms who he was madly in love with. Xia Yao fluttered his eyelids shut,
peacefully relishing the kiss Zhou Du given him.

Zhou Du only released Xia Yao slowly after a lengthy kiss. Looking at Zhou
Du ears, which were reddened from the cold, Xia Yao chuckled and
pinched them, before taking off his scarf and wrapping it around Zhou Du’s
neck, “Hurry back home.”

“Aren’t you cold?” Zhou Du wanted to take the scarf off, but Xia Yao
pressed on his hand and assured him, “I’ll be back home soon. You can give
the scarf back to me the next time we meet.” Thrilled at the promise of meeting
next time, Zhou Du was grinning from ear to ear like an idiot as he headed
back home.

A new year came in a silent snowfall, creating a moist atmosphere.

Ever since Xia Yao remembered everything, he spent his new year with
only his mother. There was no need to visit relatives or friends, after the new
year eve’s family dinner, he watched the Spring Festival Gala with his

t/n: Spring Festival Gala is a Chinese New Year special variety show which
airs during Chinese New Year’s Eve and it has become a tradition for
many Chinese households.

Mother Xia went to bed early, as she wasn’t in the habit of staying up until
the new year would come. It wasn’t 9pm yet, and she was yawning

“Mom, you should go to bed,” Xiao Yao said as he leaned over to look at
his mom’s face.

Mother Xia stood up, she patted Xia Yao’s shoulder and said,
“Don’t stay up too late, you should rest soon.” “Ok.”

Shortly after mother Xia entered her room, Zhou Du called. Xia Yao went to
his room and shut the door before picking up the call.

“Happy new year,” Zhou Du’s voice came the other end of the phone.

“Happy new year,” Xia Yao whispered back.
328 Report
“Have you eaten New Year’s Eve dinner?”

“I have.” Xia Yao could hear chattering noise coming from Zhou Du’s

“Wait a sec,” Zhou Du said to Xia Yao, and then he covered his phone
while running upstairs. After he had gone upstairs, Zhou Du quickly
explained to Xia Yao, “Both my grandpa and grandma are here to
celebrate the new year, so there are more than a few family members here.”

Xia Yao felt envious; he didn’t have grandparents on his mother’s or

father’s side. He felt that besides his mother, he didn’t have any other

“You should accompany your grandparents and chat with them,”

Xia Yao said to Zhou Du.

“It’s ok,” Zhou Du replied with a smile. “I will accompany you instead.”

Xia Yao immediately felt warm inside; his eyes brimmed with
emotion, he couldn’t help but whisper back to Zhou Du on the other end of
the phone, “Thank you, Zhou Du.”

Thank you for liking me, thank you for willingly accepting me.

High school had always been the earliest one to start a new
semester, as classes had officially begun on the 8th of new year.

First Lady stood on the platform, she spoke down to them from the high
ground, “Cheer up, everyone, new year is already here. The college
entrance exam is drawing near. From this semester onward, the school is
going to require all the seniors to attend the night self- study.”
329 Report
The classroom was suddenly filled with wailing.

“Quiet!” First Lady slammed the table, “You can ask me to leave for
special circumstances; otherwise, it doesn’t matter if you stay in the
boarding school or just attend the day school, everyone must attend the
night self-study.”

The school kept their word, that night, every senior had to stay for the
evening self-study. When classes were dismissed at 9pm, parents had already
gathered outside to pick up their children. Xia Yao knew the school custom,
so he let mother Xia know in advance.

Zhou Du was about to send Xia Yao home, but he was rejected by Xia

“It’s already late, you should go back. From now on, you don’t have to send
me back after every self-study.” He didn’t want to make Zhou Du sad, so
he added, “Didn’t we already promise to go to B city together? It’s only a few
months away, we should try hard together.”

“But, what does that have anything to do with sending you home?”
Zhou Du protested.

Xia Yao blushed, “Whenever you send me home, my head is filled with
you and I can’t study with ease. So from now on, it’s better if I go home

Hearing him say that, Zhou Du immediately felt immensely pleased with
himself. “That sounds reasonable, more or less,” he mumbled, and then said
to Xia Yao, “Fine, but you have to text me when you get home.”

Xia Yao nodded his head. He knew he was still a bit below the W Uni’s
standard. Zhou Du’s grades were exceptionally good, so S Uni was definitely
no trouble for him. Xia Yao didn’t have full confidence taking W Uni’s
entrance exam; hence, the only thing he could do to shorten the distance
was to double his effort.
330 Report
As time passed by faster, both Xia Yao and Zhou Du seemed to have
reached an agreement, as both of them immersed themselves in their studies.
Xia Yao unexpectedly took the 5th place in his class.

Mother Xiao couldn’t hide her excitement. On Saturday, she closed her stall
early and said that she must take Xia Yao to a restaurant.

However, Xia Yao objected, “Mom, there is no need to go to the

restaurant, isn’t it better if we just cook at home?”

“What are you saying? You have done well on your test, I feel so happy.”

Xia Yao pondered, then said, “The food outside might not be
hygienic enough. My college entrance exam is about to come soon; if I eat
something bad and get a stomachache, it might affect my score.”

Mother Xia felt that her son’s words seemed reasonable, so she gave it
a thought before speaking, “You’re right, homemade foods are safer. What
do you want to eat tonight? I will buy it for you.”

Xia Yao told her his favorite dishes, and mother Xia happily
prepared to go to the food market. After mother Xia had left, the cellphone
in Xia Yao’s pocket buzzed. He took out his phone; it was a text from Zhou

[What are you doing?]

Xia Yao thought a little bit before he replied, [I’m writing papers.]

Zhou Du then sent another text, [I miss you, do you miss me?]

Xia Yao stared at the text, only after a while he replied back with only one
word, [Yeah.]

Zhou Du immediately sent a new text, [How much?]
331 Report
Xia Yao didn’t know how to reply back, so he returned his cell phone
into his pocket and took out a math exam paper to calm himself down…
but the phone kept buzzing nonstop in his pocket.

[Quick, answer me.]

[Where are you?]

[Xia Yao!]

Xia Yao felt annoyed by the buzz, but as he was about to reply to Zhou
Du, a phone call from Zhou Du came. Xia Yao’s hand trembled. Then, the
sound of door opening echoed beside his ear.

“Yao yao,” Mother Xia called for him at the door.

Xia Yao quickly hung up the call, but it didn’t take one second for another
buzz to come. Xia Yao was afraid to be found out by his mother, so he
panickedly turned off his cell phone.

“What’s wrong, mom?” Xia Yao stood in front of his door, and asked.

Mother Xia smiled and shook her head, “I’m really getting old, I didn’t
realize I forgot the wallet at home until I was halfway there. Did I disturb
your study?”

“No.” Xia Yao watched his mother leave the house, then once again
stepped inside his room.

Xia Yao turned on his phone again, took a look, but it seemed like Zhou Du
hadn’t called him again. He looked at the math test on his desk, pondered,
and put his cell phone into the drawer.

Zhou Du ran to his house as fast as he could; he was panting heavily

when he reached Xia Yao’s place. Xia Yao was struggling with the math
problems when he heard a knock at the door. He got curious and
thought his mom must have forgotten something again,
332 Report
so he went out.

When he opened the door, he found out that Zhou Du was standing outside.

“You, you, why did you come?” Xia Yao looked at Zhou Du in

Zhou Du said breathlessly, “Why didn’t you take my call?”

Xia Yao hurriedly dragged him inside. “I was doing homework.” As if he was
trying to make Zhou Du believe him, he walked inside his room and pointed
at the test papers on his desk, “Look yourself.”

Zhou Du quickly stepped inside Xia Yao’s room, then he shut the door
and pulled Xia Yao behind the door, “Quick, say you miss me.”

Xia Yao didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “You ran all the way to my
house just for this?”

Zhou Du saw Xia Yao didn’t say what he wanted, so he

aggressively blocked his lips by kissing him fiercely. “Say you like me.”

“Zhou Du!” Xia Yao shouted vaguely and pushed him back. “Don’t be like

Zhou Du showed a face as though he was wronged, and just stared at Xia

Xia Yao’s heart went soft; he raised his hand to stroke Zhou Du’s face,
and he looked at the other passionately, “I like you.”

Zhou Du couldn’t help but smile;he lowered his head and gave Xia Yao a
kiss, as he asked, “How much?”

Xia Yao’s face turned red; he let Zhou Du kiss him, and then
answered Zhou Du in a low voice, “So much. So, so much.”
333 Report
“Me too.” Zhou Du put his tongue inside Xia Yao’s mouth after he said

Mother Xia was standing outside of Xia Yao’s room with a pale face; the
plastic bags in her hand had caused her fingers to turn red.

T/n: Gasp, the classic “mother found out her son was having an affair
with a man and kissing behind her back” has begun.

She could clearly hear their conversation from outside. At first, when
she heard Zhou Du and Xia Yao were both inside, she had intended to
knock on the door to ask whether Zhou Du wanted to stay over for dinner,
but then she came closer and heard Zhou Du say, “Say you like me.”

Having heard that, mother Xia actually didn’t think much, not until she
heard her son’s reply. She was thunderstruck.

Those two…

Mother Xia panickedly took a step back; Zhou Du was immersively kissing
Xia Yao behind the door. Mother Xia carried the bag of foods she just bought
and once again left the house. She stood outside the door, her mind empty.

In her mind, it was wrong for men to like men. It was sickness—her son was
sick. She thought in fear, what should she do? Her Yao Yao had always been
a good kid, why did he suddenly learn something so bad?

This must be Zhou Du’s fault.

A trace of resentment flashed in mother Xia’s eyes; she was sure that he
must be the one teaching her son bad things. However, she couldn’t jump in
and separate them right now. Xia Yao was about to take the college
entrance exam.

That’s right, mother Xia felt relief, as long as Yao Yao became a
334 Report
college student, and was separated from Zhou Du, he would surely become
normal again.

It was as if she just found a new hope for herself, a trace of color finally
appeared on her face. Once mother Xia sorted out her emotions, she
shouted inside as she stood in front of the door, “Yao Yao.”

Inside the room, Xia Yao panickedly pushed Zhou Du away, hurriedly
answering, “Mom, you have returned.”

He opened the door of his room, ran toward the front door and helped
his mom carry the groceries inside.

“Godmother.” Zhou Du also came closer and gave her a greeting smile.

Mother Xia forced herself to show a polite smile, and she gave Zhou
Du a nod.

“Godmother, let me help you wash the vegetables.” Zhou Du said


Mother Xia did not spare a single look to Zhao Du; instead, she looked
at Xia Yao and said, “Don’t bother yourself, you should go back to your
room and do your homework.”

Xia Yao couldn’t do anything but put down the food and return to his room.
Since Zhou Du didn’t see any response from mother Xia, he felt a bit

“Zhou Du.” Mother Xia put all her effort into calling his name.

“What is it, godmother?”

“You, you should go home first, both of you are about to take the college
entrance exams. You should keep your mind on preparing for the test, after
that you can come to play with Yao Yao.”
335 Report
Zhou Du realized mother Xia was driving him away; he was stunned
briefly, but quickly gave her a smile, “You are right, godmother. In that
case, I’ll go now.” He purposely called louder toward Xia Yao’s room, “I’m
going home, Xia Yao.”

Xia Yao stepped outside and said to Zhou Du, “I will send you off.” “Send

what.” Mother Xia even though was smiling, but her smile
didn’t show in her eyes, “You should do your homework soon, don’t
be too full of yourself just because your score was better on the last test.”

“That’s right,” Zhou Du agreed with mother Xia. “It’s not like I don’t
know the way back home; I’m going home now. See you later, godmother.”

After Zhou Du’s silhouette had disappeared behind the door, her smile
vanished like snow in spring.

Xia Yao felt as though his mom was a bit tense lately. She had never
asked him about his situation at school before, but now she would use
indirect methods to get information. Xia Yao slowly realized something
was different; it turned out his mom was worried about puppy love.

“Mom, it’s ok.” Xia Yao assured his mom, “I’m certain I won’t let puppy
love affect my studies.”

Mother Xia looked at him with complicated look in her eyes, “I’m not an
old-fashioned mom. If you like some girls, your mom isn’t going to oppose
you, it’s just that you are still young. After you go to college, I won’t interfere
with your love life.”

“Mom, I know. Rest assured, I will put my studies first.”

How could mother Xia feel relieved? However, there were some things
she didn’t want to talk about. If she had to pretend to know
336 Report
nothing, then so be it. She saw that Yao Yao was still young, so he didn’t
understand much; she’d just wait until he went to college and was separated
from Zhou Du. Then, her son would surely change back.

The time for the college entrance exam was drawing near. Before anyone
noticed, the days countdown on the blackboard had changed from three digits
to two digits, and then there was only a single digit left.

The closer the date of the entrance exam was, the less pressure First
Lady gave them.

Xia Yao’s mind was heavily pressured regardless. The result of the third
mock exam hadn’t met his expectations, thus he hadn’t been in high spirits
lately. After class, since Chubby wasn’t there, Zhou Du took the chance
and sat next to Xia Yao to chat.

“What’s with that upset look?”

Xia Yao looked at him and sighed, “According to the result of the third
mock exam, I’m certain I can’t pass W Uni’s exam.”

To Xia Yao’s surprise, Zhou Du comforted him, “It’s ok to not pass the
exam.” He whispered, “It doesn’t matter if we don’t end up staying in the
same city. At worst, I can just come visit you every week. I don’t want to
see you unhappy.”

Xia Yao was moved; he looked at Zhou Du, and answered,

“Actually, enrolling into W Uni has always been my dream. The college
entrance exam hasn’t started yet… we don’t know what will happen.”

Zhou Du really wanted to caress Xia Yao’s face at this moment, but there
were still people inside the classroom. He couldn’t do anything but put his
hand in his pocket and stand up, saying, “You can do it.”
337 Report
Xia Yao nodded at him.

Wang Hao hadn’t been in good mood lately. His performances had always
been poor, but usually, one or two bad test results wouldn’t upset him like
this. Zhou Du was conscientious enough to realize this, and he decided to
share a tiny bit of concern, which he had previously directed all to Xia
Yao, with his childhood friend.

“Why are you looking so half-dead lately?” He stood behind Wang Hao and
kicked his chair.

Wang Hao looked at him unhappily, then he groaned. “Ugh…”

Zhou Du couldn’t stand his response, so he took back that ‘fingernail’

size of concern and returned to his seat.

“Wait,” Wang Hao grabbed Zhou Du’s hand. “Let’s skip the evening

“Skip class?” Zhou Du frowned, “What for?”

“To get drunk.” Wang Hao intentionally looked out the window with a deep

Zhou Du replied ruthlessly, “No.”

“Are we still even bros anymore?” Wang Hao didn’t want to listen,
desperately clinging onto Zhou Du’s hand.

Zhou Du was about to shake him off when Zhang Yang walked inside
the classroom.

“What are you two doing?” he looked at Wang Hao and Zhou Du, and
then he pulled away Wang Hao, who was like a sloth holding onto Zhou

“Zhang Yang.” Wang Hao switched his eyes on Zhang Yang, “Want to get
drunk with me tonight?”
338 Report
Zhang Yang looked at him calmly, “What do you want to get drunk for?
Broken heart, or failing the test?”

“Neither.” Wang Hao looked like a deflated ball as he lay limp on the
table, “My father wants me to study abroad.”

Both Zhou Du and Zhang Yang were stunned.

Wang Hao ferociously bit the meat on the bamboo skewers, then took a
big gulp of beer. It was the time of the second period of the 12th grade’s
night self-study, and hey were inside a barbecue stall located on the

“Can you even study abroad with your English level?” Zhou Du mocked

Wang Hao swallowed the meat and beer, then he looked at Zhou Du as if
he was wronged, “I also don’t want to go, but my father insists on it.”

Zhang Yang had been remaining silent ever since he heard Wang Hao
was going to study abroad.

Wang Hao nudged Zhang Yang with his elbow, saying, “Don’t you usually
come up with the best solutions? Quick, help me think of something.”

Zhang Yang looked at Wang Hao with complicated eyes, and he replied
clumsily, “Your father wants to send you abroad… isn’t it because of your
grades which only lower level universities would accept? This way,
studying abroad might be a good solution.”

Wang Hao didn’t expect Zhang Yang to rather join his father than help him
coming up with an idea, so he immediately got angry. “Just because I study
abroad, you think I will be able to study in a good school? It could be some
diploma mill university.”
339 Report
Having heard that, Zhang Yang didn’t retort back, he simple picked up the
cup of wine and took a sip.

“Anyway, I don’t want to study abroad,” Wang Hao continued. “What

good is studying abroad? Tossing me to some foreign countries
while you guys are idling at home. I won’t agree to it.”

Zhou Du glanced at him, “You should have treasured those times when
Zhang Yang dragged you to the makeup lessons everyday.”

Wang Hao turned his head over to look at Zhang Yang, and then fake
cried on his shoulder, “I was wrong, Zhang-ge, you are indeed a wise man! I
am regretting this so, so, so much.”

Zhang Yang balled his hand on the table into a fist, clenching with every
ounce of strength he had to push back the thought of hugging Wang Hao.

“Which country are you going to?” he asked in a hoarse voice.

“I don’t know, it seems like my father wants to send me to the US. I can’t
even say ‘Gud monin’ (Good Morning) correctly, how could I live there? How
can I live without you guys?” Wang Hao finally cried sincerely this time.

In the end, Zhang Yang couldn’t suppress his urge, so he reached out his
hand and patted Wang Hao’s head, “It’s ok, live there well, maybe we will
meet again.”

Wang Hao was overjoyed, “Are you going to the US as well?”

Zhang Yang shook his head, “I heard that every university offers an
exchange program between countries. I can only say it’s a possibility,
but I cannot guarantee it.”

Wang Hao turned into a pile of mud on the table again.

Zhou Du couldn’t stand his dead dog appearance. He kicked him
340 Report
under the table, “Why are you looking like you are facing a matter of life or
death? Aren’t you coming back a few years later?”

“You say that so easily. I’d like to see how you’d react if Xia Yao were to
go to the US for a few years!”

“Wang Hao!” A hint of anger flashed across Zhou Du’s face.

Wang Hao realised his slip of tongue too late; he looked at Zhang Yang
with guilt, and to his surprise, Zhang Yang calmly opened his mouth to say,
“You and Xia Yao must already be together.”

Both Wang Hao and Zhou Du perplexedly looked at Zhang Yang. Zhou
Du seemed to react sooner—he quickly glanced at Wang Hao.

“I haven’t said anything,” Wang Hao hurriedly sweared, “Really.”

“I realized it on my own.” Zhang Yang maintained his unshaken look,

“Xia Yao has always been an introvert, now he suddenly walks so close to
you. I couldn’t think of any other reason. Also,” he paused before continuing,
“can you be less obvious when you look at Xia Yao? Don’t say it’s just me,
when time comes, others might start suspecting.”

Zhou Du’s ears went red from his words, he sneered, “If it weren’t Xia Yao
who doesn’t want people to know, I wouldn’t care any less about others’
opinions. Laozi likes who laozi likes. What the fuck does that got to do with

T/n: Laozi : a self-addressed term to indicate one’s superiority, usually

used when angry.

“That’s right, what the fuck does that got to do with them?! Come, bottoms
up!” Wang Hao raised his glass and drank his beer gulp after gulp until he
had none left. “Ah~so good!”

Zhang Yang silently emptied his cup of wine at once while hiding the
envy he had for Zhou Du under his eyelids.
341 Report
Without a doubt, Wang Hao was dead drunk. Even though disgust showed
on Zhou Du’s face, he still carried him on his shoulder.

“Taking him home?” Zhang Yang asked Zhou Du.

“If we just take him home like that, his father would skin him alive. Maybe
we should go to my house.” He paused a bit, “Actually no, if we go to my
house and my father learns about it, then it’s just a matter of time before
his father knows as well. How about your house?” Zhou Du put Wang
Hao’s hand on Zhang’s shoulder and said, “Let him stay with you for one
night, it’s quite late now, I should also head back.”

Zhang Yang hugged Wang Hao’s waist, and nodded toward Zhou Du,
“Ok, be careful on your way.”

Even though Wang Hao was dead drunk, his mouth couldn’t stop
mumbling, “I won’t go to the US, I won’t go to the US.”

Zhang Yang whispered to his ear, as though coaxing a child, “Ok, we

won’t go anywhere, let’s go home.”

At night, Xia Yao hid under the blanket while texting Zhou Du. When
he finally learned about Wang Hao’s studying abroad, he couldn’t but
sigh. [What did Zhang Yang say?]

Zhou Du wondered why Xia Yao asked about Zhang Yang, but he still
answered honestly, [Zhang Yang said he would support Wang Hao going
to the US.]

Hearing Zhou Du say that, Xia Yao’s heart was full of admiration towards
Zhang Yang. If Zhou Du had to study abroad for several years, Xia Yao
knew he wouldn’t be able to withstand it.

[Anyway, I won’t let us separate. We are aiming for B city,

understand?] Another text came from Zhou Du.

Xia Yao looked at the new message, and his heart felt warm. He
342 Report
replied with [I know.]

Between him and Zhou Du, well, they probably wouldn’t be

seperated. Xia Yao put his phone on the side, looked up at the ceiling in daze.
It was just that his mother…

Xia Yao turned over and looked towards the wall in the direction of his
mother’s room.

He definitely wouldn’t behave like his previous life, quarrelling with his
mother and then ignoring her. If his mother refused to
acknowledge them, then he would wait for her because he believed that one
day his mother would understand.

After all, she was his mother, right?

Note: This happens during XiaYao’s past life. The main story
continues in the next chapter.

When ZhouDu got off the plane, it was already about to be 5:10pm. He

carried his sling bag and followed the crowd out of the airport. A hint of
anxiousness was evident in his angled brows as they formed a slight crease.
His initial plan was to arrive at M City by 3 pm, but who would have thought the
damned plane was a bit delayed. It seemed like ZhouDu was too late to
have dinner with XiaYao.

The restaurant reservation was for 6 pm. ZhouDu kept lifting his hand to
take note of the time. Once out of the airport, he hailed a taxi right away and
told the driver the location of XiaYao’s university. It was Valentine’s Day
today; he flew all the way here just to celebrate it with XiaYao.

ZhouDu didn’t know what had gotten into him either. Even if they wanted
to celebrate festivities together, XiaYao should be the one going to him,
since it was him who insisted on having a relationship with him. However,
XiaYao didn’t even express a single interest in anything related to
Valentine’s Day the whole day yesterday. Hence ZhouDu acted on impulse
and bought a ticket to the city XiaYao was in straight away, even booking a
restaurant while he was at it. Of course, he spent quite some time and
looked for quite a while for the booking he did in passing. After all, the
restaurant was already fully booked on Valentine’s Day.

While peering out of the taxi window, ZhouDu noticed pairs and pairs of
couples strolling through the streets hand in hand. He stared
344 Report
at those people for a while, before lowering his head to glance at his hand

[Are you at school?] He sent a message to XiaYao. Not

long after, XiaYao’s reply was received. [Yes.]

ZhouDu couldn’t help himself from rushing the taxi driver, “Can you be

The taxi driver took a glance at ZhouDu from the rearview mirror, before
stepping on the accelerator to speed his car up. Youngsters nowadays…
Tsk, tsk. Can’t even wait a single minute longer.

Only when ZhouDu was right outside the university did he give XiaYao
a call. However, never would he have thought that the call would be hung
up after a mere two rings. After a momentary daze, ZhouDu was about to call
again when he got a call back from XiaYao.

“Hello?” he muttered in a low voice.

“Where are you?” ZhouDu asked while walking into the university.

XiaYao paused for a bit, replying, “I was in the library’s study room just now.
Why? What’s up?” In truth, receiving a call from ZhouDu at this hour did make
XiaYao secretly hopeful. Does he know what day it is today? What will he be
talking to him about?

ZhouDu stopped in his tracks. He visited XiaYao’s dorm once, but he had
no idea where the library was. “I’m at your school gates. Can you come out

“Wh-what?” XiaYao thought he was hearing things.

ZhouDu repeated, “Meet me at the school gates.”

After hanging up the call, XiaYao sprinted towards the school gates without
even packing his books. ZhouDu is here. His heart thumped
345 Report
rapidly, in utter disbelief, yet full of anticipation. Only when he saw that
familiar figure after reaching the school gates did he come to the realization
that it truly was ZhouDu. “Why… why are you here?” XiaYao asked

ZhouDu sized him up, his face expressionless as he answered, “Oh, I’m
inspecting M City with my school today. I remembered you are here too, so
I dropped by to meet you.”

XiaYao’s high spirits vanished immediately. So it is just a wishful thing of

mine. That’s right, how is it possible for ZhouDu to specially take his time
to come over and meet me. XiaYao hid his disappointment away.
After surveying ZhouDu, he asked cautiously, “Have you eaten? Or will you
be going off with your teachers?”

That was just what ZhouDu was waiting for, “Nope. I told my
teachers that I will be coming here and didn’t let them wait for me.”

“Then, do you want to have dinner with me?”

ZhouDu accepted the invitation with a taut face. It was then XiaYao noticed
he had nothing on him, so he told ZhouDu, “Give me a minute, let me
grab something from my dorm.”

“What are you going to get?”


ZhouDu eyed at him, “But I’m hungry. Let’s just go straight for dinner
before that.” Without waiting for any response from XiaYao, ZhouDu headed
outside the school immediately after he finished his sentence. XiaYao
caught up to him hurriedly.

The university had a food court outside of it. XiaYao was planning to bring
ZhouDu there to settle their dinner, but unexpectedly, ZhouDu raised
his hand, hailing a taxi. “Where are we… going?” XiaYao stood by the
taxi while asking hesitantly.
346 Report
“Downtown. Don’t tell me you are expecting me to eat at such a tiny
restaurant?” ZhouDu pulled a face at XiaYao on purpose. Believing
that ZhouDu did get mad, XiaYao entered the taxi hastily.

A clear line was in the middle of the two. Neither of them took the initiative
to strike up a conversation. XiaYao stared at the back of the taxi driver’s head
in a daze. This was the second time ZhouDu came to him; the first was
during his first year in university. For some unknown reason, he drank
until he was blind drunk that day, and called ZhouDu to bawl at him. Thus,
ZhouDu rushed over to him from his school. However, by the time ZhouDu
arrived, XiaYao was already awakened from his stupor. He got a room for
ZhouDu at a small hotel near the school. Incidentally, the first intimate
contact he had with ZhouDu happened at that hotel.

The sudden brake of the taxi interrupted XiaYao’s train of thought. Once he
came back to his senses, he heard the taxi driver explaining, “There seems to
be a traffic jam in front.”

ZhouDu kept whipping out this hand phone to take note of the time. At
that moment, it was less than twenty minutes to 6 pm. “How far is XX
restaurant from here?” he leaned forward and inquired the taxi driver.

“Oh, it’s not that far. Just turn round the corner and pass through a street.
Walk a few hundred meters, and you’ll reach the restaurant.” After thanking
the driver, ZhouDu tapped on XiaYao’s shoulder, “Let’s walk there.”

When they reached the restaurant, it was 6 pm, just right on time. ZhouDu
was about to step into the restaurant when the attendant by the doorway
blocked his way, informing him, “I’m sorry sir, the restaurant is full.”

ZhouDu glimpsed at him without a word and fished out his hand phone at
once to make a call. Not long after, a manager pushed the door and walked
out of the restaurant, inviting ZhouDu and XiaYao in
347 Report
with a wide grin across his face.

As it was the first time XiaYao dined in such a restaurant, he felt like a fish
out of water there. The entire restaurant was decorated to fit the theme of
Valentine’s Day. XiaYao took a seat. Surprisingly, a single rose was placed
beside the beverages served to them. ZhouDu seemed as though he didn’t
notice any of it while asking XiaYao, “Let’s order right now since we are
hungry. What do you want to eat?”

XiaYao flipped the menu, at a complete loss. ZhouDu looked on with a

frown for a moment, before suggesting nonchalantly, “I think it is probably
Valentine’s Day today. No wonder there’s so many couple set menus. Do you
want to try it out?” He lifted his head and stole a glance at XiaYao. XiaYao
had no idea what to order, so he nodded in agreement upon hearing that.

A violinist, a golden-haired handsome foreigner, came over to their table

while the dinner was served. Following a graceful bow towards ZhouDu and
XiaYao, he started performing. XiaYao couldn’t help himself from stealing
a few glances at the foreign hottie. ZhouDu felt displeased all of a sudden.
“Stop,” he spoke in English, “there’s no need for you to be here. You may
leave.” The violinist wasn’t insulted at it either as he courteously left the

Without the music, a heavy silence fell upon them. XiaYao stared at the
steak in front of him, clueless as to what he should do with it. ZhouDu cut his
share and shifted it to XiaYao, “Hurry up and eat it.” Then, he took XiaYao’s
share, taking big bites of it after slicing it offhandedly. XiaYao picked up
his fork as well, finishing the steak little by little.

As the night was still young when they left the restaurant, XiaYao couldn’t
resist asking, “Will you be meeting up with your teachers?”

Knowing that a lie had to be hidden by a thousand ones, ZhouDu

deadpanned, “Our teachers don’t control what we do at night.”
348 Report
As they had already met up and finished their dinner, XiaYao
questioned again, “Which hotel are you staying in? Do you need to go back
and rest?”

ZhouDu didn’t book a hotel at all, so he deliberately changed the subject,

“It’s still early. Come take a walk with me.” Actually, XiaYao wasn’t familiar
with M City either, but since ZhouDu suggested it, he was, of course, more
than willing to stay with him a bit longer. However, most people on the
streets today were couples, making it rather awkward for them. Every one of
those couples had their hands entwined together with a sweet smile
hanging on their faces. Furthermore, some even started kissing

XiaYao and ZhouDu strolled along wordlessly, a slight distance

consciously maintained between the two of them. Finding their silent walk to
be defeating its purpose, ZhouDu stopped and turned towards
XiaYao, “Let’s go back.”

“Go back?” “Back

to school.”

XiaYao didn’t know why ZhouDu wanted to follow him back to his school.
His dorm room was pitch dark when he got in. The few guys in the dorm
were dating girls, so they probably wouldn’t be back tonight.

ZhouDu set his sling bag onto the table, before scrutinizing the dorm.
XiaYao wanted to pour a cup of water for ZhouDu but realized the hot water
dispenser was empty. There was a supply of hot water on the first floor of
XiaYao’s dorm. Noting that XiaYao had left downstairs with his hot water
dispenser, ZhouDu flipped open his bag in a hurry and took a look inside. He
was relieved once he saw the item he brought was still around.

XiaYao came back shortly after he refilled the hot water dispenser. He
poured a cup of water for ZhouDu. With the cup in his hands,
349 Report
ZhouDu feigned nonchalance as he notified XiaYao, “Our teachers gave
me a call just now.”

“Rushing you back?”

“No,” ZhouDu placed the cup onto the table, staring at the cup guiltily,
“they told me that there are only two rooms left in the hotel they booked. I
suppose I don’t have anywhere to stay tonight.”

“What are you going to do then?” XiaYao’s tone revealed his unease.

ZhouDu studied his dorm for a bit, “If the worst comes to the worst, I’ll
stay overnight here.” XiaYao was speechless, stunned. “Why? Can’t I?”
ZhouDu’s face darkened.

“I mean, you can, but the bed is a bit…”

“It’s alright,” ZhouDu interrupted, “it’s not like I’m going to sleep here
every day, it’s just one night of us squeezing together. Look what day it is,
every hotel is definitely fully booked.”

XiaYao thought so too, so he suggested to ZhouDu, “Do you want to take

a shower then?”

ZhouDu brought a change of clothes just for that. Hearing what XiaYao
offered, he replied, “Of course.” Therefore, XiaYao led him to the bathroom.

When ZhouDu finished showering, he noticed XiaYao was bending down

and making his bed. The bedroom in XiaYao’s dorm was not the same as
ZhouDu’s. Although both dorms had bunk beds, XiaYao’s dorm consisted
of two beds with one over the other (this style) with the desks in a row by the
side. After feasting his eyes on XiaYao’s slender waist for a while, ZhouDu
crept up on him, “Your turn.”

Startled, XiaYao bumped onto ZhouDu’s body the moment he turned

around. ZhouDu had a towel draped around his neck. XiaYao’s
350 Report
face was blushing as he moved to one side and walked past ZhouDu.

Once XiaYao was done showering and realized ZhouDu was already lying
on the bed, he stood at the side, dilly dallying as he avoided getting onto his
bed. ZhouDu called out, irritation obvious in his tone, “Why? You don’t want
to sleep with me?”

“No.” XiaYao sputtered. He reached out his hand to turn off the lights,
before groping his way to the bed in darkness. ZhouDu’s eyes, seemingly as
though they were able to illuminate in the dark, stared fixed at XiaYao.
XiaYao touched around the bedside before lying down beside ZhouDu.
Since ZhouDu slept sideways, XiaYao had no choice but to sleep with his
back facing him. Not one word was uttered by the two; only the sounds of
their mismatched breathing could be heard in the pitch black bedroom.

ZhouDu focused his eyes onto the back of XiaYao’s head, his heart in
turmoil as he racked his brains about what he should say to make the
situation reasonable for him to pounce on XiaYao. Truth be told, XiaYao
hadn’t shut his eyes either. He was gazing silently at his desk.

“XiaYao.” Out of the blue, ZhouDu called out XiaYao’s name in the

“Wh-what is it?” XiaYao stammered.

ZhouDu slid his hands slowly up to XiaYao’s waist, “Do you still
remember the first time we slept together?”

Of course XiaYao did. A fierce blush grew on his cheeks. He had no idea
what gave him the courage that day. When he was lying beside ZhouDu
then, he stripped himself bare and threw himself at a stupefied

ZhouDu’s fingers crept down, stopping once they reached XiaYao’s upper
thighs. “Want to give it a try?” he used his sexy yet hoarse voice to
seduce XiaYao.
351 Report
A shiver of excitement ran through XiaYao’s body. He could feel every
bit of warmth emitted from ZhouDu at his back.

“Take off your clothes.” ZhouDu inched towards him abruptly and

whispered to his ears.

XiaYao cried out while trembling, “ZhouDu.”

ZhouDu got up slightly, repeating, “Take off your clothes.”

XiaYao quivered as he started unbuttoning his pajamas. Seeming to find

him too slow, ZhouDu took it upon himself to reach his hands out and
unbutton his pajamas. Since the current weather was rather cold, XiaYao’s
naked body instantly felt a slight chill. He shrank into his bed sheets
unconsciously. ZhouDu pulled XiaYao over at once. His long legs straddled
XiaYao, pressing him down. He straightened his body and removed his
clothes, dumping them on the ground. XiaYao couldn’t stop himself from

ZhouDu arched over XiaYao again, his voice husky, “Hug me.” Thus,
XiaYao obediently held ZhouDu in his arms. ZhouDu had a great figure.
As XiaYao embraced ZhouDu’s firm waistline, his mind went wild briefly.
Feeling the change in XiaYao’s lower body, ZhouDu smirked and whispered
into XiaYao’s ears, “You got hard.” XiaYao’s face blew up in a crimson

The morning the next day, XiaYao realized he was alone on his bed upon
waking up. A twinge of disappointment flashed in his eyes. XiaYao
propped his slightly aching waist and stood up, before opening up
every window of the bedroom to ventilate it. The bed sheets and blanket
had to be changed. However, with his sore body, he didn’t want to move at all.
He lied back down his bed, shutting his eye to recollect the time he had with
ZhouDu last night.

ZhouDu’s skills in bed weren’t all that great. XiaYao only felt a little
352 Report
pleasure at the very end last night. Most of the time, there was only one
sensation he felt—pain. Nonetheless, he didn’t mind the pain; even if it
hurt, he would still bear with it. This was the first time ZhouDu
suggested out of his own will to do that with him. Delight washed over his

Someone was unlocking the door. XiaYao thought his roommate had
returned, so he stood up right away. In one of ZhouDu’s hands was
porridge takeout. Seeing that XiaYao had woken up, ZhouDu stared at
him, “Just lie down.”

XiaYao blinked, confirming to himself that the person in front of his was
indeed ZhouDu, “Haven’t… you left?”

“Left?” A wrinkle formed between ZhouDu’s brows, “How can I leave

when you are in such a condition?” He strode towards the bed and sat on it,
his ears reddened as he questioned, “Does it still hurt?”

XiaYao shook his head.

ZhouDu brought the porridge over and asked, “Do you want some
porridge? I just went down to buy it.”

XiaYao wasn’t really full after the dinner last night. Smelling the fragrant
porridge made him realize his stomach was already empty. He reached out
his hands, attempting to take the bowl from ZhouDu. Never would he expect
ZhouDu to stammer out, “Let me feed you.”

XiaYao’s cheeks were stained red at once. He surmised that the first
Valentine’s Day he spent with ZhouDu would probably be etched into his mind

Quite a few days had passed after WangHao’s drunken stupor. With
the exams (National College Entrance Examination) creeping up, any kind
of movement made in the classroom was done quietly, so as to not disturb
the students from resting in between classes. In contrast, XiaYao got more
and more relaxed as the days passed. That was because he knew that the
nearer the exams were, the more he had to stay calm. Besides, he had gone
through the exams in his past life, so the level of stress he had wasn’t as
huge as before.

The exam guide had been distributed. After studying it for a while, XiaYao
turned behind to take a look at ZhouDu. WangHao was listless ever since the
day he skipped school. ZhouDu thought he was just upset about going to
America, so he didn’t read too much into it.

After the self-study, WangHao swung his bag to his shoulders, preparing
to leave. ZhangYang, who sat beside him, snatched his wrist, “Let’s talk.”

WangHao’s expression changed at once. As though he hated being

touched by ZhangYang, he jerked his hand away. Due to the over
exertion of force, his body banged against the desk of a nearby
classmate. “Don’t touch me.” He lowered his eyes before sprinting out of the
classroom without even a glance back at ZhangYang.

The commotion attracted everyone’s attention. The gloom on

ZhangYang’s face vanished as quickly as it appeared. ZhangYang began
packing his bag expressionlessly, seeming as if nothing had happened.
XiaYao tilted his head, deep in thought as he observed ZhangYang.
354 Report
ZhouDu walked to his side and tapped on his shoulders, “Let’s go home.”

While walking side by side with ZhouDu, XiaYao questioned, “Is

ZhangYang fighting with WangHao?”

“No idea,” ZhouDu replied without any interest.

After a slight hesitation, XiaYao inquired again, “Aren’t you going to ask

ZhouDu sighed, “Though WangHao always seems like a nitwit, he actually

keeps things to himself all the time. Even if I went over and asked him now,
he will still keep mum about it. He will just spill it out whenever he feels like
it. Besides, ZhangYang, he and I were classmates in junior high. The
number of fights they had is uncountable. It’s alright; it will be
fine a few days later.” Nevertheless,
XiaYao found the situation to be not as simple as what ZhouDu said.

As expected, WangHao didn’t turn up to school the next day. The thing
that befuddled XiaYao was that First Lady just went on with his routine and
patrolled around the classroom, seeming as if he didn’t notice WangHao’s
absence. Seeing that ZhouDu had an indifferent look on his face, XiaYao
presumed he thought too much about it. Furthermore, there were only five
days until the exams, so he didn’t have much energy to poke his nose into
others’ business.

WangHao only returned to the classroom a day before the exams. There
were no classes for all third years that day, only one last class meeting
conducted by their homeroom teachers. In the class, the girls who were
more expressive started weeping silently. XiaYao felt tears welling up a little in
his eyes too. After the emotional farewell, First Lady straightened his face
again, giving out various exam pointers to everyone before letting them off
to their holidays. It was the last holidays for the third years, which marked
the end of their senior high school lives.
355 Report
Once XiaYao got out of the exam room after his last paper, he spotted
his mother, who had waited for a long time outside, so he hurried over.
XiaYao’s mother didn’t ask about the exams at all. Instead, she just told
him that he had worked hard and started dragging him back home.
However, XiaYao couldn’t help but to take a glimpse back at the exam room.
He knew ZhouDu was inside too but had no clue if he had gotten out.

ZhouDu, as though he had detected his yearning, appeared

suddenly in front of XiaYao from the crowd. “Godmother,” he greeted XiaYao’s
mother warmly. The back of XiaYao’s mother froze straight away. She turned
back slowly and gave him a smile.

Currently wearing a beautiful skirt, ZhouDu’s mother approached them,

walking in her high heels. “Big sis.” With her fashionable style and light
makeup, she looked more like ZhouDu’s sister than his mother. “The two
rascals are finally done with their exams; why don’t we go celebrate

“No, there’s no need.” XiaYao’s mother smiled courteously at her, “You

should go on and celebrate. XiaYao and I have something on, so we’ll be
going back home.”

“Oh, is that so?” ZhouDu’s mother revealed a twinge of

disappointment on her face, before replacing it with a grin, “It’s fine. The
holidays are long anyway. When the results are out, I’ll hold a celebration
for XiaYao.” After politely dodging around her invitation, XiaYao’s mother left
with XiaYao. ZhouDu gazed at XiaYao’s back wistfully. ZhouDu’s mother
gave his son a contemptuous look, “Your eyeballs are about to fall from the
staring. Let’s go home~”

XiaYao finally picked up on the change in attitude his mother had towards
ZhouDu. Although he couldn’t quite put his finger on it, he felt something off
about it. XiaYao was a little anxious as he asked his mother, “Mom, you don’t
like ZhouDu?”

“Of course not; he is handsome, smart and polite ; a really
356 Report
endearing kid.” After calming her stiffened heart down, XiaYao’s mother
assured her son. “But,” she continued with difficulty, “they are well to do after
all. XiaXia, we are poor; they are out of our reach. I’ll treat your bone marrow
donation to them as us doing a charity. Don’t ever believe what they say.
How many people among the rich are trustworthy?” It wasn’t known
whether the last sentence was directed to XiaYao or herself.

XiaYao tried to placate his mother, “Mom, he won’t; ZhouDu isn’t like

“He’s still a young, innocent student now; of course he isn’t

someone like that. But that will change once he steps into society. People
always change.” XiaYao’s mother got agitated all of a sudden.

XiaYao responded hastily, “Alright, I got it, mom. I’ll take note of it.” His
mother’s grasp on his hand tightened more and more. In spite of the pain,
XiaYao let his mother continue clutching without a word.

Only when they were about to reach home did XiaYao’s mother
discover the few red streaks she made on XiaYao’s wrist. “Silly boy,” her eyes
reddened, “does it hurt?”

“No.” XiaYao flashed a grin at his mother, revealing two rows of white
teeth. As the mother and son headed home lovingly, an unannounced
guest stood by their doorway waiting for them.

By the time ZhouDu got back home with his mother, the Zhou family’s
nanny had already whipped up a sumptuous dinner. ZhouDu’s father
was still at work. After taking a look at her sleeping daughter, ZhouDu’s
mother fished out her phone to give her husband a call. ZhouDu plopped
down the sofa, a little sulky.

Noticing how gloomy her son was after she hung up the call,
ZhouDu’s mother kicked his leg, “What is it? Made a slip this time?”
357 Report
ZhouDu cast an eye on his mother before mumbling dejectedly, “I think
XiaYao’s mother doesn’t like me.”

“Oh my. Why? Do you think you are a flower; that everyone likes you? It
should be normal for her not to like you. Take a look at you and then at
XiaYao. Why would she like a cheapie like you when she has such an
obedient son?”

The bad-mouthing from ZhouDu’s mother made ZhouDu even more

sullen. He turned around and went up the stairs.

ZhouDu’s mother sat on the sofa and turned the TV on, before calling
out to ZhouDu, “Go take a shower and change your clothes. We will start
our dinner when your dad is back. The three of us will drink till we drop
tonight, alright?”

ZhouDu slammed his door shut, irritated.

Upon entering his room, ZhouDu stooped down and leaned his back on
the door, his long legs slightly bent.

[How was your exam?] He sent a message to XiaYao.

The other party didn’t respond even after a good while. [What are you
doing?] He sent again. A few minutes had passed, but there still wasn’t any
reply from XiaYao.

ZhouDu glowered at his phone and hurled it to his bed beside him, before
throwing himself onto his bed. I want to see XiaYao so much. He held his
pillow in his arms, muttering to himself, “Why aren’t you XiaYao?”

Once he ended his sentence, he flung the pillow aside. The pitiful pillow
plunked down the ground after two bounces on the bed.

ZhouDu lied on the bed with his legs outstretched. His hand phone beside
him vibrated suddenly. Surprised, ZhouDu grabbed it and took a look, only to
find out that it was a call from WangHao. The
358 Report
excitement in him vanished into thin air as he picked up the call aloofly.

“Are you at home?”


“I’ll go to your house later at night.”

“What is it?”

“I…I have something to tell you. I can’t figure it out myself, and it’s hard to
hold it inside. I guess you are more experienced in it than me.”

ZhouDu found it strange. What did he have more experience in as

compared to WangHao? Oh right, studies. He told the caller, “What? The
exams are already done. You still want me to give you tuition?”

“It’s not about tuition!” WangHao barked at ZhouDu, before lowering the
phone and hanging up.

ZhouDu glanced at his handphone, which call had just been hung up, and
muttered, “Nutcase.” Then, he crawled out of bed and sauntered
toward the bathroom in his room.

ZhouDu’s father got home the moment ZhouDu finished showering.

“Good work.” His father gave him a smile and waved to him, “Come over
and sit down.”

The whole family sat around the table harmoniously; the nanny sat beside
ZhouDu too.

ZhouDu’s father inquired, “How is it? Have you decided on the university
you are going?”

“S Uni,” ZhouDu replied.
359 Report
“Heh. Well, aren’t you cocky?”

ZhouDu’s mother was piqued at once, “What’s wrong with my son picking
S Uni? I gave him such a clever little brain, getting in S Uni will just be a
piece of cake for him. Right, my boy?” ZhouDu didn’t care to reply back.

ZhouDu’s father continued, “I heard WangHao is going to study in

America. How is it? Any thoughts about studying abroad?”

“Nope.” ZhouDu rejected swiftly, “I don’t want to go to America, I just want

to go to S Uni.”

“Okay.” ZhouDu’s father seemed delighted at his son’s answer. He raised

his wine cup, addressing to ZhouDu, “In that case, I wish you success.” With
that, he drained the wine cup in one gulp.

ZhouDu peered at the white wine in his glass. Holding his breath, he
followed his father’s lead and downed the wine.

After dinner, ZhouDu was about to return to his room to call XiaYao when
WangHao unexpectedly showed up. Seeing that WangHao was indeed
troubled, ZhouDu brought him up to his room. Once they were in the
bedroom, ZhouDu pulled out his desk chair and motioned at WangHao with
his chin, “What’s up?”

WangHao only started asking ZhouDu after hemming and hawing for a
long while, “Have you fucked XiaYao before?”

ZhouDu froze, “What did you say?”

“What?” Zhou Du was taken aback, “How could it be!” He quickly denied,
“Xia Yao and I, we are in a pure and clean loving relationship.”

Wang Hao sighed, he spoke to Zhou Du with a soulless face,

“Somehow I felt like I just got fucked.”

Zhou Du: “…” Zhou Du felt like he was the one being drunk tonight instead of
Wang Hao.

“What do you mean by somehow?” Zhou Du glanced at him, “Isn’t this

something you should have known yourself already?”

Wang Hao didn’t say back a thing, he remained gloomy.

“Seriously, just what happened to you ah?”

It wasn’t until later did Wang Hao started opening his mouth slowly,
“It was that day’s morning where I woke up finding myself staying at
ZHang Yang’s house.”

Zhou Du recalled, “Oh, didn’t you get pissed drunk that day? I was afraid
your father would beat you after you got home, so I let Zhang Yang carry you
to his instead. Rest assured, I have told your mom.”

“So it was your fault.” Wang Hao sullened, “That morning I found myself
being fucked by that bastard!”

beans without taking a break to breathe, “Had he not been my bro, fuck no,
ex-bro, I would have fucking beat him to death! From now on we are

Zhou Du was stunned.

“Maybe you are overthinking it? Maybe it was just too hot so you took off
your clothes. Zhang Yang is not the type to top you out of nowhere ah.”

“Who said that! That guy!” Wang Hao threw a fierce glare at Zhou Du, “That
brat told me he has been in love with me for a long time! Would you take off
Xia Yao’s clothes just to sleep together purely!?”

Zhou Du felt that Wang Hao’s words made sense.

“Then what are you planning to do?”

“I want to cut ties with him completely.”

Zhou Du saw him fuming, he suddenly asked, “So you didn’t come to
school because your ass was hurting?”

“What?” Wang Hao’s face with a puzzled face, “Why should my ass hurt?”

Zhou Du slightly coughed, his ear went a bit red, “Oh, I did some
research on the internet when I had free time, it said the receiving side’s
ass will be in a very uncomfortable state. Wasn’t this the reason you
stopped coming to class those few days?”

“It was not!” Wang Hao startled, “I didn’t come to school because I don’t
want to see Zhang Yang. I will be going to the US anyway, nothing will
change whether I go to school or not. My ass was not even a slightest bit
in pain!”
362 Report
Zhou Du thought, he frowned, “So Zhang Yang was the one being fucked
by you?”

“I…No way! I was so drunk I know nothing.”

“So I was right, the drunken you fucked Zhang Yang.” Zhou Du drew a
conclusion to the matter.

Wang Hao was shocked, his mouth was wide open yet no words came
out. He pondered for a bit, Zhang Yang’s expression was deathly pale
that morning, which meant, I fucked him?

“See? He got topped by you, but since he didn’t want you to feel guilty, he
had to confess. Yet you want to break ties with him.” Zhou Du shook his
head, “I pity Zhang Yang.”

“Fuck!” Wang Hao blushed, he hastily explained, “Even, even if I topped

him, it’s still his fault. Didn’t he know how to resist? I can’t beat him.”

“Didn’t you just say it, Zhang Yang likes you, so even if he could beat
you, he won’t.”

Wang Hao was nearly convinced. “No, it can’t be.” He still couldn’t believe
it, “I’m going home to think this over.”

Wang Hao left Zhou Du’s room with confusion etched onto his face. After he

had left, Zhou Du finally managed to react. What did

Wang Hao just say? Zhang Yang likes him? How could he not know?

Xia Yao’s phone was buzzing inside his pocket nonstop, but his mind
didn’t pay attention to it.

Inside the room, a woman was sitting straight on the bench with a cup of
water on the table. She picked up the cup, gave it a few blows,
363 Report
and then took a sip. She looked as if she was drinking an expensive coffee
inside a high-class cafe, not plain hot water.

She gracefully put down the cup onto the table as she gave a smile toward
Xia Yao.

“Have the exams finished? How do you feel?”

Xia Yao pursed his lip, it wasn’t just doubt showing in his eyes, there
was a bit hostility. He always felt that this woman wasn’t like what his mom
had told him, she was a friend of his mom who lived in other area.

“Not bad.” Xia Yao slowly replied with only two words.

“Oh?” The woman raised her eyebrows, “Is there any university you
want to go to?”

This time, XIa Yao didn’t even bother to spill even a word, he directly
stood up and said to his mom, “Mom, I’m tired, I’m going to my room.”

“Go ahead.” Mother Xia looked at her son with a complicated face.

Xia Yao responded with a single, “En,” then went to his room without
paying a single look to that woman.

“You should go.” Mother Xia whispered to the woman, “I don’t want to see
you any longer.”

The woman showed an anxious expression. Her eyes swept across the
shabby house, “This place, I remember it was him who helped you guys
settle down here.”

Mother Xia went pale.

“So many years have passed. It seems like it was our fault being
inconsiderate. Think carefully what I have said before, after all, to go
364 Report
with his father or to go with his mother, I think you understand the difference
the best.”

Even though Xia Yao was in his room, he could hear their
conversation clearly.

Father, it has been a while since he last heard that word.

He leaned to the side with one hand as pillow, his face showed no

After the woman had left, mother Xia remained idle for awhile. Not until the
room was completely submerged in darkness did she finally stand up and
turned on the light.

“Yao Yao.” Mother Xia’s voice sounded hoarse, “Are you hungry? I will go
prepare the meal now.”

Xia Yao opened the door, the light inside his room was also not on.
Under the darkness, mother Xia couldn’t see her son’s face clearly.

When Xia Yao stepped under the light, mother Xia realized Xia Yao was
carrying a smile on his face.

“I’m hungry, Mom. I will help you wash the vegetables, tonight I want to
eat braised pork.”

Mother Xia had a sour feeling inside her nose. She looked at her son’s
back but with a different feeling.

Her son was an outstanding boy, living with that woman seemed… But she
didn’t want that, she was unwilling, because, why? Based on what did they
think they could steal her son away just because that woman couldn’t have
a son?

After dinner, this was the first time mother Xia didn’t return to her room
365 Report
Xia Yao rarely stepped in his mother’s room. In fact, the two rooms had the
same layout, a small space with a single bed and a table, so small that
nothing else could fit in. Clothes and other things were packed in
cardboard boxes and stuffed under the bed.

Fortunately both of them didn’t have that many clothes.

Xia Yao sat on the bed next to his mother. Mother Xia rummaged through
the cardboard box under the bed and took out an old yellowed photo.

She put the photo in Xia Yao’s hand and said, “This was taken when I
was young.”

It was a black and white photo. Mother Xia was very young in the picture,
with the braided twintails hairstyle that was in trend at the time. She was
smiling shyly at the camera.

Standing next to her was a man taller than her by one head. Even though
the picture was very blurry, Xia Yao could still see the man was very
beautiful and white, he could see a familiar shadow in his appearance.

The man inside the picture had one of his hands behind his back while the
other hand was vaguely placed on mother Xia’s shoulder.

“Is this guy my, father?” Xia Yao paused because he wasn’t really used to
say the word.

Mother Xia nodded.

“So, is he dead or did he abandon us?” Xia Yao voice was

“He said he wanted to marry me,” She laughed bitterly, “Maybe he really
wanted to marry me at that time.”

“I took him to visit my brother. I lost my parents when I was young, so I grew
up with my brother.” Mother Xia paused, then continued, “My brother didn’t
object our marriage, but he said, after we got married, he should take me to
city with him. At that time, he assured my brother that he would take me with
him as soon as he graduated. He left right after the new year. I only found out
that I was pregnant with you when he left nearly three months later.

“My brother asked someone to send a letter to him, asking him to come
back to marry me, but there was no reply. I said to my brother that I would go
to the city to find him. Even if he didn’t want me, I needed at least an
answer. An acquaintance brought me to the city. When I found his school, he
was not happy with my arrival.”

When mother Xia said this, she couldn’t but looking away. She
remained silent for a while before continued, “I asked him whether he still
wanted to marry me, and he said yes, but since he was busy with his
graduation, he didn’t have time to reply. He helped me find a small inn and let
me stay there. I wrote to my brother saying that I have found him, and he
agreed to marry me. However, I stayed in that hotel for nearly three
months and he didn’t say a word about marrying me.

“My stomach got bigger and bigger day after day. If I returned to the
village, everyone would definitely know. I begged him to come back with
me, but the next day he brought a woman with him. That was the woman
sitting outside earlier. He said she was his fiancee.” Mother Xia chuckled,
but it carried a trace of irony, “His son was
367 Report
inside my belly, yet he said he had a fiancee.

“What can I do? That woman said as long as I’m willing to, the child could be
born. But, that child will have no connection with Zhao WenHua, and I,
am nothing but a distant relative from the same village who seeked his
help because I had an unwanted pregnancy. Retribution, it’s all retribution.”
Her eyes showed a trace of hatred, “Now that woman can’t give birth to a
child, but she wants you to accept Zhao WenHua. Yao Yao, how can your
mom let you go to him? I don’t want you to, base on what, after all those
years, except the fact he gave us a house to live in, when has he ever asked a
question about you? Based on what, did he think he could just take my son
away to his liking?”

“Mom.” Xia Yao suddenly pulled his mother’s hand to his chest, “Mom,
rest assured, I will stay with you, I won’t go anywhere but here.”

“Yao Yao, am I a selfish person? You will have to deal with a lot of
hardship if you choose to live with me. That man married a lady from a rich
family, he is a successful man right now and he wants to take you home as a
young master of a rich family.”

“Mom, it doesn’t matter whether he has money or not, no matter who he is,
I only have you. You swallowed the bitter pills and raised me up this well. In
the future, when I become successful, we will have a better life. Even if I fail, I
won’t let you starve to death. We have undergone so many hardships, I
believe we will be better and happier in the future.”

Hearing her son say that, mother Xia couldn’t help herself but lay on her
son’s thin shoulder.

Behind her tears, was it sadness, or was it relief and happiness?

In the H City’s airport lounge, Wang Hao’s mother was tugging on her son,
preaching on and on with her eyes reddened. As Wang Hao’s childhood
friend, it was natural for Zhou Du to send him off as well. He even called Xia
Yao to come over to allegedly send off his classmate, but in fact, he
just wanted more time with him.

Seeing that his mother’s bawling got more and more severe, Wang Hao
pouted swiftly too, “Mom, since you don’t want me to go, I won’t be going to
the US then.”

“Ridiculous!” Wang Hao’s father chided him before pulling his wife to one
side and telling her with displeasure, “He’s almost 18, what’s there to cry
about? We are sending him off to the US, not Africa; what are you so worried
for? Do you think he will be suffering here? As I see it, his life is just too easy.
He should be sent away to experience some hardship.”

Wang Hao’s mother hit her husband, her face streaked with tears, “Why do
you have to send him to the US or whatever that is? With so many universities
in China, there’s bound to be one he can get into. We aren’t counting on him
having a brighter future from studying anyway! We can support a son
ourselves, can’t we?”

“You!” Wang Hao’s father almost had his eyes popping out from rage,
“it’s all because of your coddling that Wang Hao turned out like this.” While
pointing his finger at Zhou Du, he continued, “Look at Zhou Du, and then
look at your son. The difference between them is abysmal.”
369 Report
“Dad, please stop telling off mom,” Wang Hao protected his mom in haste,
“all right, I’ll go to the US, don’t you worry. Can I bid farewell to Zhou
Du now?” Upon having heard that, his parents shuffled aside quietly.

Wang Hao strode to Zhou Du. Xia Yao went aside, giving them some
space to talk. Never would Xia Yao expect Zhou Du to hold his waist in his
arms, drawing him over. A jolt ran through Xia Yao as he directed his gaze to
Wang Hao’s parents, only to realize that Wang Hao’s mom was still
wiping away her tears, while her husband whispered something to her.

Wang Hao shot a glare at Zhou Du. After taking a look at the airport
gates, he questioned Zhou Du, “Did you not tell Zhang Yang I’ll be leaving

With both of his hands tucked into his pockets, Zhou Du lifted his eyelids
and gave Wang Hao a lazy glance, “Since you wanted him to send you off,
why didn’t you tell him about it yourself?”

“I didn’t say I want him to send me off! I’m just wondering why he isn’t here.
I suppose that’s just because you didn’t tell him.”

“I did,” Zhou Du replied, “but what can I do if he doesn’t want to come. If I

were Zhang Yang, I wouldn’t send you of, either. What for? To send off an
ingrate like you?”

“You!” Wang Hao was about to fly into a rage, but with his parents around,
he had to control his tongue. He could only lower his volume and whisper to
Zhou Du, “how am I an ingrate? I didn’t know then.”

“But now you do, so why didn’t you apologize to him?”

Wang Hao’s face flushed red at once; no way was he going to admit
he was too prideful to apologize. “Forget it,” he scratched his head, annoyed,
“if he isn’t going to send me off, so be it. Anyway, he can’t look for me once
I’m in the US.”
370 Report
Xia Yao stood next to them, a little puzzled as he listened in to their

“All right, hurry up and leave. You’re so long-winded,” Zhou Du cast an

impatient glance at Wang Hao. “It’s not like you’re going to Mars. Why are
you such a nag? You can still come back every year.”

“Zhou Du, you are the damn ingrate, not me,” Wang Hao hurled those
bitter words to Zhou Du, pointing to Zhou Du’s nose before returning to
his parents’ side.

Zhou Du turned over to Xia Yao, “All right, let’s go.”

Xia Yao flashed a mystified look at him, “Aren’t we going to send Wang
Hao off to the plane?”

“It’s fine; he has his parents for that,” once Zhou Du finished his
sentence, he yelled out, “Uncle, Auntie, we will be off then,” and left the
airport with Xia Yao.

They noticed Zhang Yang standing outside the airport the moment they left
the lounge. Zhang Yang leaned on the glass wall, his head turned to peer
through the glass and take a look at the scene inside. Xia Yao was the first to
realize his presence. He tugged on the Zhou Du beside him in a hurry,
“Zhang Yang.”

Zhou Du shifted his eyes to the direction Xia Yao pointed; it was indeed
Zhang Yang. “Why are you here? Go on in,” Zhou Du walked towards Zhang
Yang and gave him a pat on his shoulder.

Zhang Yang turned his head over. After glancing at the two of them,
he shook his head, “No need. Are you guys leaving? Let me send you two

Zhou Du found it strange, but Zhang Yang had already started to stroll
towards the parking lot. Zhang Yang was older than them by a year, which
was why he could get a driving license after the exam
371 Report
ended. He drove his car slowly out of the car park. Zhou Du didn’t stand on
ceremony either. With Xia Yao in his hands, he got in the car right away.

“Since you’re here, why didn’t you go in? He was complaining to me

about you not sending him off just then.”

Zhang Yang was stunned once he heard that, seemingly finding it

impossible, “Did he really say that?” The instant those words were out of his
mouth, he lowered his head and turned the corners of his lips up in self-
mockery, “I thought he never wants to see me again.”

Zhou Du was sitting at the back. After a glimpse at Zhang Yang’s profile,
he advised, “It’s not like you don’t know Wang Hao and his temper. Are you
seriously going to continue fighting with him?”

Zhang Yang shook his head, his smile bitter, “It’s not the same this time.”

“How is it not the same?” Zhou Du cast a glance at Xia Yao,

deciding to speak after some pondering, “Wang Hao had told me what
happened between you two. Hey, you sure are great at hiding; when did you
fall for that guy? Why didn’t I notice it at all?”

Xia Yao was caught entirely by surprise. He cast a frantic glimpse at

Zhang Yang, who was currently driving.

All Zhang Yang did was sigh before answering, “It’s been a while.
Probably around grade eight or nine.”

Zhou Du’s eyebrows furrowed, “So you have had a crush on Wang Hao in
all these years. You sure are secretive, huh.”

Zhang Yang answered with a low ‘Mn’. Seemingly unwilling to

continue, he turned his head slightly to ask the two behind him, “Where
are you two going? I’ll drive you there.”

372 Report

Although Zhou Du and Xia Yao replied at the same time, their
answers were different.

“Why do you want to go home? Since we are outside, of course we should

go on a date.”

Seeing how straightforward Zhou Du was with his words, Xia Yao swept
his eyes over to Zhang Yang in embarrassment, before muttering to
Zhou Du, “Lower your voice.”

Zhou Du clutched Xia Yao’s hand to his palm as he inched to his ear and
whispered, “We’re not going home; we’re going on a date.” As soon as he
stopped talking, he gave Xia Yao a peck on the cheek. A bright shade of red
covered Xia Yao’s face.

With a sigh, Zhang Yang turned his steering wheel, driving towards
downtown. Once they had reached their destination, Zhang Yang drove

An ice cream shop was not far from them. Upon further inspection, Zhou Du
realized it was actually the shop where Xia Yao and Fang ZeYu had eaten
ice cream together. “Let’s go there,” Zhou Du pointed to the shop.

Xia Yao’s eyes followed to the direction Zhou Du was pointing. A slight
hesitation later, he asked, “You want to eat ice cream?” Zhou Du huffed
before hauling him there.

When the two of them entered the shop, Zhou Du searched for a table. He
had Xia Yao sit by an empty table he found, before queuing up to buy some
ice cream. As it was the height of summer, the ice cream shop was bustling
with customers. Upon returning to Xia Yao with two cups of ice cream in
hand, Zhou Du noticed a girl sitting opposite Xia Yao. His expression
darkened as he marched over.

“Excuse me,” Zhou Du spat out curtly to her.
373 Report
The girl turned over, surprised to see that the guy behind her was even
more handsome. She hurried up her seat apologetically, “I’m sorry. The
shop is full. I saw this hottie sitting over here alone, so I decided to share a
table with him.”

“I told her it was occupied.” Afraid that Zhou Du would

misunderstand, Xia Yao explained straight away.

That girl’s eyes curved into two jovial crescents, “Yes, he did say so. But
this is a table for four; do you mind me sharing with you?”

“Yeah,” Zhou Du threw a rude rejection at her. Then, he set a cup of ice
cream in front of Xia Yao and sat opposite of him. Shocked at Zhou Du’s
bluntness, that girl’s face was as ripe as a tomato. She apologized to the
two of them and left.

Xia Yao peeked at Zhou Du cautiously and started explaining to Zhou

Du, “Just now, she just took a seat suddenly. I told her it was occupied, but
she didn’t believe me.”

Zhou Du put a scoop of ice cream into his mouth; the sweet cream melted
instantly. A tinge of ice cold sweetness swam down his throat to his stomach.
He cast a look at Xia Yao, “I never said anything, though.”

Xia Yao had no idea whether Zhou Du was mad or not. He stirred the ice
cream in his cup anxiously. His eyes were fixed onto Zhou Du.

Zhou Du raised his head to peek at Xia Yao. Realizing that Xia Yao had his
eyes on him, he grinned, “Want some of my ice cream?” With the spoon he
used just now, he scooped out a spoonful and passed it over to Xia Yao, “Try

“Who cares; they don’t know us.” Zhou Du moved the spoon

Zhou Du took back the spoon and placed it back to his mouth, giving it
a lick. With his eyes focused on Xia Yao, he smirked, “So sweet.” Xia
Yao’s blush deepened further.

It was still early when they finished their ice cream. Who knew what had
gotten into Zhou Du; he insisted on dragging Xia Yao to the movies on the
spur of the moment. Not much people visited the movie theatre in the
afternoon. Zhou Du purposely chose their seats to be somewhere closest to
the corner at the back. Once inside, they noticed that, except for the three to
four people in the middle of the front row, all seats were empty. Zhou Du
found he had made a perfect choice to bring Xia Yao to the movies. The two
of them got to their seats and sat down.

Not long after they took their seats, the theatre darkened. Xia Yao placed all
of his energy to stare at the wide screen in front. However, due to the
distance, he had to squint a little. The lights from the screen dimly
illuminated Xia Yao’s face. Zhou Du turned over to him. With his head resting
on his hand, he gazed straight at Xia Yao’s profile, not even minding what
was on the screen. Feeling the heated gaze from Zhou Du, Xia Yao became

Zhou Du crept up closer to Xia Yao abruptly, his hand grabbing Xia Yao’s
chin to turn his head to him. They gazed into each other’s eyes. Zhou Du
muttered to Xia Yao, “Is the movie more interesting than me?” With that
said, he moved towards Xia Yao’s lips, giving him a deep kiss. Xia Yao
pressed his hands onto Zhou Du’s chest. The moment the kiss ended,
Zhou Du asked, “I fed you my ice cream before, but you didn’t offer yours to
me. There’s still time to make up for it.” As he licked his lips, he added,
desire in his voice, “Yup, as sweet as I expected.”

In the darkness, Xia Yao asked with a flushed face, “Then, do you want to
try it again?” Upon hearing that, Zhou Du pressed his
375 Report
forehead to Xia Yao, and kissed him deeply.

After Xia Yao went back home, he noticed his mother wasn’t back yet, and
so, he took the initiative to cook dinner. After Xia Yao’s mother closed her
stall and returned home, she was flabbergasted that her son could actually
cook. In his previous life, Xia Yao learned cooking just for Zhou Du. His
mother’s reaction made him guilty.

“Mom,” Xia Yao passed some food to his mother with his
chopsticks, “I want to go out and do something during the holidays.”

“Do something? What is it? Are you in need of money?” Xia Yao’s mother
asked in a hurry.

Xia Yao explained, “No. The holiday lasts for two months; since I have
nothing to do, so I think I should try out some part-time job. I can kind of
train myself while doing so too. Mom, I’m already an adult.”

Xia Yao’s mother sighed as she set her chopsticks slowly onto the table,
“It’s all because your mommy is so useless.”

“Mom, don’t say that,” Xia Yao interrupted his mother. “It’s only to train
myself. After I go to university and out to work, I will need to have some
work experience anyway. Besides, my exam is over; there’s not much to
do staying at home. Don’t tell me you want me to continue studying?”

In the end, Xia Yao managed to convince his mother and

succeeded in getting a job. Zhou Du had originally planned to bring Xia Yao
out to a trip, and he was shocked to learn that Xia Yao looked for a job. Xia
Yao’s workplace was in a milk tea shop. Due to his good
377 Report
looks, the shop owner placed him at the shop front to rope in customers
while standing by the counter.

Once Zhou Du noticed zero responses from Xia Yao after the calls and
messages he sent, he couldn’t stop himself from rushing to his house to
look for him, only to find him not at home. Only when Xia Yao came home
from work did he learn about Xia Yao’s job. “Are you in need of money?” Zhou
Du asked him the same question Xia Yao’s mother asked.

Xia Yao heaved a sigh, “Yes, indeed I am.” Covering the fees for his
mother’s health checkup was not a problem for Xia Yao with the little bit of
money he had saved up. However, in his past life, his mom died of cancer.
Although he had already been working for a few years by the time his mother
got sick, he wanted to prepare for it in advance. Even if his mother was
currently fine, he still wanted to earn some money for his school fees and
thus lessen his mother’s burden.

Zhou Du discovered something new to do again, which was to fetch

Xia Yao home every night. “Hey, do you think we will still be going home
like this when we grow up?” Zhou Du was beside Xia Yao. The two of
them strolled along the road towards the public transport station.

After recalling the way they were together in his past life, Xia Yao shook
his head, “We will be busy at work by then, and definitely not as free as we
are now.”

Zhou Du seemed to think of something as he questioned, “Then, have

you thought about what you are going to do in the future?”

Xia Yao pondered, “I don’t know. I want to find a job related to foreign
languages. You?”

Zhou Du perked up his eyebrows, pleased at himself. “I’m going to find a job
that makes a lot of money, of course. I do have to earn money to support
my family after all,” he inched towards Xia Yao’s
378 Report
ear and whispered ambiguously. Xia Yao’s ears flushed red.

During the release of exam results, Xia Yao’s mother took a day off. In
the morning, Xia Yao was so nervous he couldn’t even eat his breakfast.
Around 10 a.m. or so, the phone number to check the exam results finally
connected. The cold, robotic female voice reported Xia Yao’s results
one subject at a time. More and more sweat oozed out of Xia Yao’s palms.
He held his breath silently. Once the final score was released, he exhaled a
long breath out.

“How it is, my boy?” Xia Yao’s mother had no clue what those scores

Xia Yao grinned at his mother, “Mom, I can get into the uni in B City.”

Xia Yao’s mother’s eyes reddened instantly. She gripped her son’s hand
tightly, nodding, “That’s good; that’s good.”

Xia Yao was about to speak when his mobile phone in his hand rang
again. He glanced at the screen and realized it was Zhou Du. “Mom, I’m
going back to my room.”

Of course, Xia Yao’s mother caught a glimpse of who was contacting

him. Her expression turned dark, “Go on.”

Xia Yao shut his door before picking up Zhou Du’s call. “Have you
passed?” the first question from Zhou Du was regarding his results. Xia Yao
remain quiet for quite some time, making Zhou Du immediately
anxious, “You haven’t?”

“Zhou Du,” Xia Yao was slow with his words, “we can go to B City

Zhou Du from the other side of the call took a deep breath. Only after a
while did he start speaking again, his voice trembling, “You… Wait, I’ll go to
you right now.”
379 Report
“Don’t come over,” Xia Yao stopped him hastily.

“Why not?” Zhou Du was confused. He wanted to see Xia Yao so much

Xia Yao stammered, “My mom is at home; it’s better if you don’t come

“Alright then,” Zhou Du’s tone revealed his disappointment.

Xia Yao couldn’t bear to dishearten Zhou Du, so he consoled him, “You
can visit the milk tea shop and look for me tomorrow. I have half a day off
in the afternoon.”


In the next afternoon, Zhou Du waited in the shop for nearly two hours
before Xia Yao even ended his shift. Xia Yao’s colleagues from the shop
asked Xia Yao, their tone gossipy, “That hottie who fetches you home every
day is here again. What kind of relationship do you have with him?”

Xia Yao flashed a nervous glance at Zhou Du before explaining to his

colleagues, “He’s my little brother.”

“Little brother?” one of his female co-workers cried out, “But you two don’t
look alike at all.”

“We aren’t blood-related,” Xia Yao clarified awkwardly.

When Xia Yao’s shift ended, Zhou Du followed him, staying by his side
wordlessly. “What’s wrong?” Xia Yao inquired, baffled.

A moment of silence later, Zhou Du replied in an annoyed tone, “I don’t like

you working here. Quit tomorrow; you’re not allowed to go back.”

Xia Yao was stunned for a bit. “Why?” he asked, bewildered.
380 Report
“Just because. If you need money, I’ll just give it to you. You are not
allowed to work anymore.”

Xia Yao, who was walking beside Zhou Du, stopped in his tracks all of a
sudden. “Zhou Du,” he stared at the back of the person in front of him, “we’re
dating. I’m not a pet you raise. I don’t have to pander to your every whim.”
Zhou Du curled his hands into fists. However, Xia Yao continued, “I don’t
need your money, nor will I quit. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to fetch
me from work.” When Xia Yao finished talking, his heart was thumping
nervously. He kept his eyes focused on the back of Zhou Du’s head as he
thought, What if he just walks away? Should I chase him then?

Nonetheless, Xia Yao didn’t like the attitude Zhou Du had shown him. He
couldn’t simply rely on Zhou Du in the future. He had things he aspired to do,
and he still had to support his mother. Both of them stood by the street, locked
in a stalemate. After sighing inwardly, Xia Yao took a step forward and was
about to reach out his hand and give Zhou Du’s shoulder a pat. Never
would he have expected Zhou Du to turn around suddenly.

Zhou Du stole a timid glimpse at Xia Yao, “I’m sorry; don’t be mad.”
He touched Xia Yao’s elbow, “Let’s grab some lunch. Are you hungry?”

Zhou Du’s response warmed Xia Yao’s heart. After some pondering,
Xia Yao replied, “Do you want to try my cooking?”

“You can cook?” Zhou Du was astonished.

“Yup,” Xia Yao nodded.

“That’s great,” Zhou Du beamed, “do you want to come over in that
case? My dad and mom brought my little sis to my grandparents’
place. Auntie nanny took a day off to go home too, so there isn’t anyone at
home right now.”
381 Report

The kitchen in Zhou Du’s house was a few times bigger than the one at
Xia Yao’s home. At first, Xia Yao had no idea where the items he needed
were placed, but once he asked Zhou Du, he found that the young master
in front of him was even more clueless than he was. “Forget it. I’ll look for it
myself,” he let out a sigh in resignation.

Zhou Du stood by his side, wanting to help too, but Xia Yao found him a
hindrance and chased him out. Without much of a choice, Zhou Du leaned on
the wall outside the kitchen. He peeked at Xia Yao, who was busy in the
kitchen, his heart fluttering with joy. Xia Yao seems like my wife, he thought,
before correcting himself, Bah! What do I mean ‘seems like’? He is my wife.
As he ogled the snow-white skin Xia Yao revealed when he bent a little lower
to wash the vegetables, he started feeling frisky, and eventually he crept up
behind Xia Yao.

The moment Xia Yao straightened his body after washing the
vegetables, his heart almost leaped out in shock due to Zhou Du being
behind him. “What are you doing?” he flicked off the water droplets on his
hands before knocking his elbow at Zhou Du’s chest, “Get out of the way,
you are blocking me.”

However, Zhou Du held Xia Yao’s waist in his arms, turned him
completely around and pressed him against the refrigerator door. The
refrigerator in Zhou Du’s home was huge. Once Xia Yao had his back on the
door, he was able to feel the buzzing sound of the electric current flow.
“What are you trying to do?” Xia Yao whispered.

Zhou Du pinned Xia Yao against the fridge, his eyes gazing into Xia Yao’s,
“Let’s do it, Xia Yao.”

Xia Yao’s cheeks burned up immediately. He thrust the Chinese

cabbage in his hand onto Zhou Du’s face before pushing him away, “What
do you want to do? I’m cooking; stop bothering me.”

Like a dog gnawing a bone, Zhou Du stood behind Xia Yao and
382 Report
persisted on, “Let’s try it out. I’ve researched a lot about it online. Don’t
worry; I won’t make it painful for you. Can we give it a try?”

Xia Yao’s face boiled even redder. Actually, he thought the kitchen in Zhou
Du’s home was too big, but now, he felt it was so narrow, it made him
sweat all over. “Stop,” Xia Yao lowered his head, attempting to calm
his heart down, “it still isn’t time yet.”

“Why not?” Zhou Du questioned indignantly, “We’ve already

graduated from high school. We are adults now, so why can’t we do the
things adults do?”

Only then did Xia Yao turned over to look at Zhou Du. He sighed, “We can
only call ourselves adults when we are mature. You are too immature now,
Zhou Du.” As it was the first time Xia Yao called Zhou Du immature, he got
pissed in an instant. Following a glare at Xia Yao, he stormed out of the

Xia Yao assumed Zhou Du had given up, so he continued cooking.

Unbeknownst to him, Zhou Du only headed back to his room to retrieve
the tie Xia Yao had gifted him. He rummaged through his room in search
for his suit. Then, he tied his tie and even applied a bit of his dad’s hair gel

The instant Xia Yao finished cooking and walked out of the kitchen, he
noticed Zhou Du walking slowly down the stairs, dressed like a grown-up.
Xia Yao fell into a trance, his face pale. The current Zhou Du was the
splitting image of his adult self.

Xia Yao’s stupefied look made Zhou Du smug. He raised his

eyebrows, “How do I look?”

Zhou Du’s question brought Xia Yao back to his senses. He lowered his
eyelids before turning his head to Zhou Du, “Come on over and eat.”

Zhou Du rushed down the stairs and stood in front of Xia Yao,
“Look at me.”

Heaving a sigh, Xia Yao lifted his head and stared straight into Zhou
Du’s eyes, “Come over and eat.”

After the meal, Zhou Du offered to help clear the tables. Seeing how
formally dressed Zhou Du was, Xia Yao laughed, “I think you should
change your clothes before that.”

Upon hearing what Xia Yao said, Zhou Du had a change of mind, “Oh
yeah, you have never seen my room yet, right? Come, come. Let me show you
my room.” Without even waiting for Xia Yao to reply, he dragged Xia Yao up
the stairs. Xia Yao looked at the back of Zhou Du’s head; the shameless
thoughts in Zhou Du’s head were as clear as day to Xia Yao. He just let
Zhou Du haul him to the room wordlessly.

Zhou Du’s room was huge and bright—that’s Xia Yao’s first
impression of it. Further scrutinization revealed that every item was put in
order, and the floor was impeccably clean. Xia Yao knew, without a
doubt, Zhou family’s nanny was the one who did all the hard work.
384 Report
Zhou Du took a glimpse at the chair under his desk and pushed it further
inside with his elbow. “Sit here,” he patted on the bed he tidied.

After a glance at the bed, Xia Yao was mulling over whether he should
sit on it when Zhou Du tugged his wrist to him and pinned him down the bed.
“Zhou Du,’ Xia Yao’s throat tightened. As he gave Zhou Du a push, the
tie on Zhou Du’s neck just so happened to sweep over Xia Yao’s face.

“It is quite hot, isn’t it?” with one of his hand propping him up on top of Xia
Yao, Zhou Du straightened his body slightly. He used his free hand to
loosen the tie.

Xia Yao’s hands reached out and touched the buttons on Zhou Du’s suit, “Of
course it will be hot if you wear a suit in summer. Just take it off.” He helped to
unbutton Zhou Du’s suit while talking.

Following a momentary stun, Zhou Du jubilantly removed his suit and

threw it to one side. After both of them gazed into each other’s eyes for a
while, Xia Yao grabbed Zhou Du’s tie and pulled him over. Zhou Du gulped

Xia Yao shut his eyes, his eyelashes trembling a little. He took a deep
breath before raising his head to give Zhou Du a peck on the lips. He knew
what Zhou Du wanted; his heart thumped rapidly. Zhou Du closed his eyes as
well while pressing down his body onto Xia Yao.

[Insert R18 scene]

Zhou Du’s face wrinkled like the tie in his hand. After slipping his clothes
on, Xia Yao blushed when he turned over and looked at Zhou Du, “Why not
throw it away?”

“No,” Zhou Du stuffed the tie below his pillow stubbornly.

Before Xia Yao even stepped into his home, he received a call from Zhou
Du. He was about to pick it up when he noticed there were
385 Report
guests at home. Presuming that it was that woman again, he opened the
doors sneakily. Never did he expect the guests to be his neighbors
in the block.

“Oh, you’re back home,” Xia Yao’s mother grinned ear to ear. After greeting
the aunties at his house, Xia Yao nodded to his mother. “Aunties around
here are overjoyed to hear you are able to get into the university you choose,
so they came over to congratulate you.” Once he heard his mother saying
that, he thanked the aunties immediately.

“Li Chun, give yourself a break tonight. The few of us booked a table in
Xian Man Yuan restaurant; let’s have dinner there tonight.”

“Oh, you shouldn’t have,” Xia Yao’s mom declined hurriedly.

“It’s nothing; we’re neighbors. Now that Xia Yao has finally passed his
exams, we should go on and celebrate for him, shouldn’t we? Let’s go.
Yaoyao, take your keys and lock the door, we’ll go out for dinner now.”

Seeing how cordial the aunties were, Xia Yao didn’t want to
dampen their spirits by declining any longer, so he persuaded his mother,
“Mom, let’s go.” However, his mother had already been dragged out of the
door by the aunties. With a smile, Xia Yao locked the door and followed

The two month holiday flew by; joy filled Xia Yao heart when he received
his paycheck. He took the money home and handed it to his mother, “Mom,
when I’m not with you in the future, don’t work yourself too hard, OK? If I
make a sudden visit home and see you are too stingy to yourself, I will do the
same to myself when I’m outside too.”

“Oh, you silly boy,” Xia Yao’s mom shoved the money back to her son’s
hands, “keep the money for yourself and use it to buy something you
like. Don’t worry about your university fees; just focus
386 Report
on your studies. You don’t need to work part-time to get more money,
OK?” Although Xia Yao found it impossible, he promised to his mother to
give her piece of mind.

Xia Yao took his mother to the hospital for a checkup two day before
enrolling into his university. Initially, his mother refused adamantly but
wasn’t able to resist Xia Yao’s urgings. Xia Yao felt reassured only when the
results indicated that his mother’s body was fine. Even though his mother
detected her illness a few years after he started working during his past life, he
was still worried and wanted his mother to have a full body check up every
year. Furthermore, he hoped to earn as much money as he could after
graduating from his university so that he would not be helpless when
his mother contracted an illness in the future.

Zhou Du enrolled two days earlier then Xia Yao and went to B City before
him. During the day of Xia Yao’s departure, his mom held on his hand
reluctantly and adjured him for quite some time at the train station. As it was
the first time her son left her side, it caused an unspeakable pain in her
heart. “Mom, I will give you a call as soon as I reached B City,” prior to Xia
Yao’s departure, he bought his mom a mobile phone with the money from
the part-time job. The train station began to announce Xia Yao’s train
number. His mother rushed him to get on board while wiping her tears
away. With his ticket in hand, he entered the train’s entry gate, looking
back longingly every step as he walked.

When the long-distance bus arrived at B City, Xia Yao felt dizzy and
excruciatingly nauseous due to his carsickness. Zhou Du’s
fashionable wear and sunglasses made him stand out in the messy bus
station. The moment Xia Yao walked out from the exit with his luggage in
tow, Zhou Du noticed him swiftly in a glance. He dashed over and took the
luggage from Xia Yao. Xia Yao’s pale face broke his heart, “I should have
booked a plane ticket for you. How are you? Still feeling sick?”
387 Report
Xia Yao shook his head, not wishing to say much. Zhou Du planned on
hailing a taxi to bring him back to the hotel, but seeing how sick Xia Yao
was, he could only look for a place to let him rest. Incidentally, a
Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant was near the station. He ordered a
cup of iced coffee for Xia Yao to let him take a breather. Only after Xia Yao’s
carsickness subsided did he bring Xia Yao to the hotel. As Xia Yao had no
appetite, he went to bed once he finished showering. Zhou Du couldn’t bear
to wake him up due to how sick he looked, so he had no choice but to
change his clothes and lie by Xia Yao’s side.

Xia Yao woke up groggily around ten at night. After his nap, he realized
he was finally better. Zhou Du was currently snuggling with his hands
around Xia Yao’s waist and his head on Xia Yao’s shoulders, his
warm breath blowing rhythmically onto Xia Yao’s ear. Xia Yao couldn’t help
himself from turning his head over, which action woke Zhou Du up. “Oh,
you’re awake. Are you hungry?” Zhou Du’s voice was a little hoarse as he
just woke up.

Xia Yao stared at Zhou Du for a bit before stroking his face, “You didn’t
eat too, right?”

“Yeah,” Zhou Du grasped Xia Yao’s hand to his lips and kissed it,
“Wanna go out for dinner?” With a nod of affirmation from Xia Yao, the two
of them packed up a little and went out the room.

As B City was a large city, its nightlife began at 10 p.m. Situated in the
unfamiliar city at the moment, Xia Yao wasn’t worried as much. When Zhou
Du’s fingers lightly brushed onto his palm, he summed up his courage and
held on them gently. Surprised, Zhou Du turned to Xia Yao before clutching
back tightly. Thus, just like a normal couple, they strolled along the
street lights hand in hand on the streets.

Only after the school officially started did Xia Yao realize how far the
distance was between Zhou Du and his university. Both schools were nearly
at the opposite ends of the city. There were more classes
388 Report
in the first year. Besides going over Xia Yao regularly during the
weekends, Zhou Du would spend time with him when he didn’t have any
classes. Feeling bad for Zhou Du, Xia Yao would pay him a visit sometimes
when he was free. Zhou Du always looked ecstatic whenever he did

It was Xia Yao’s birthday not long after the school started. Zhou Du skipped
the self-revision class at night and went over to Xia Yao’s university to
celebrate it. To surprise Xia Yao, he didn’t tell Xia Yao about it ahead of
time. Instead, he booked quite a few dishes at a restaurant near Xia Yao’s
school before calling Xia Yao in the private room of the restaurant. However,
all calls to Xia Yao were dismissed. Assuming Xia Yao was still in class, Zhou
Du went to the first floor of Xia Yao’s dorm after waiting for a while.

Guessing Xia Yao’s class was probably over when it reached 9.30 p.m.,
Zhou Du gave Xia Yao another call. Xia Yao did answer it, but Zhou Du
detected some weariness in his tone. “What’s wrong? You didn’t pick up
any of my calls. Did your class just ended?”

Once Xia Yao heard Zhou Du’s question, he raised his energy
forcefully, “Yeah… Something like that. How about you? Have you gone
back to your dorm?”

Zhou Du wanted to surprise Xia Yao, so he answered, “Yeah, I’m in my

dorm. What about you? Back to your dorm yet?”

“I’ve just reached the first floor of my dorm,” Xia Yao paused slightly
before he replied.

Zhou Du scanned the surroundings of Xia Yao’s dorm and asked,

“You’re on the first floor of your dorm right now?”

“Yeah,” Xia Yao continued answering, “I’m heading upstairs. I’ll be ending
the call now; go get some rest.”

Zhou Du’s expression darkened right away. He was standing at the
389 Report
ground floor of the dorm for quite a while. If Xia Yao did return to the dorm, he
would definitely spot him. As though he disbelieved Xia Yao, he sprinted
up to Xia Yao’s dorm room.

He began knocking on the door. One of Xia Yao’s dorm mates was playing
his videogame, while the other was leaning on his bed as he read a book.
After sweeping his eyes over the room, Zhou Du asked Xia Yao’s dorm
mate, “Where’s Xia Yao?”

“Huh?” the dorm mate who was playing removed his headphone. He
turned over and glimpsed at Xia Yao’s bed, “No idea; he’s probably
not back yet.”

Zhou Du gripped the door frame, clueless as to why Xia Yao lied to him.
Suddenly, his handphone in his pocket vibrated a little. Once Zhou Du took
a glance at the screen, he realized it was a message from Xia Yao.

[I’ve reached my room. Go on and rest too. Good night.]

Zhou Du stood by the door of Xia Yao’s dorm room, his eyes glued onto the

With his hand gripping his handphone tightly, Zhou Du took a deep breath
before calling Xia Yao. Presently, Xia Yao had just reached the school gates.
As he viewed the incoming call from his handphone screen, his brows
furrowed slightly. Still, he picked it up.

“I’m outside your dorm room,” Zhou Du sounded cold. Xia Yao froze in
an instant.

Once Xia Yao rushed back to the first floor of his dorm, he noticed Zhou Du
standing by the stairs, beside the bulletin board in front of the dorm. Zhou Du
looked at Xia Yao expressionlessly with his hands tucked into his pockets.

Xia Yao walked to Zhou Du, asking after long hesitation, “Why did you
come to my school at such a late hour?”

The rage burning in Zhou Du’s heart almost made his lost his
senses. However, recalling the promise he made to Xia Yao, he
swallowed down the hurtful words threatening to spill from his mouth.
“It’s your birthday today,” he opened his mouth slowly to speak.

Xia Yao only came back to reality after a stun. “Zhou Du,” panic grew
inside Xia Yao suddenly due to the curious gazes at Zhou Du and him from
the students passing by. “I…” never did Xia Yao expect Zhou Du to catch him
red-handed going back late. Nonetheless, it wasn’t the place for them to
talk, so he had no choice but to whisper, “let’s message each other later.”

Zhou Du was fuming. He skipped his class at night and traveled
391 Report
from one end of the city to Xia Yao’s school joyfully just to give Xia Yao a
surprise on his birthday. Although he knew he should be rational and
believe in Xia Yao, in his heart, he still wished for an immediate
explanation from Xia Yao. However, Xia Yao told him to discuss it later.

“Fine,” he spat out a one-word answer through his gritted teeth before
storming off Xia Yao’s school without turning back.

Xia Yao fixed his gaze on Zhou Du’s back. In truth, he was exhausted
after working to the bone at night. It wasn’t his intention to keep his part-time
job a secret from Zhou Du; he just didn’t have the chance to tell him.
However, after looking at Zhou Du’s lonely walk away from him, he
hesitated a little before chasing him recklessly. He didn’t want any more
misunderstandings to derail his relationship with Zhou Du, not even a bit.

After catching up to Zhou Du, Xia Yao touched Zhou Du’s arms as
whispered, “Zhou Du, are you angry?”

Zhou Du’s face was devoid of expression, “What would I be angry about?”

Xia Yao nodded, “Well, that means you are angry.”

Zhou Du was already pissed then; Xia Yao’s answer just added fuel to the
fire raging in him. He hastened his steps, walking in a brisk pace to the
school gates. Xia Yao simply followed behind him.

By the time both of them reached the school gates, it was about 10 p.m., an
hour before the dorm curfew. Even if Zhou Du traveled back to his school now,
he probably wouldn’t be able to get into his dorm. Nevertheless, he headed
towards the bus stop. Fortunately, there weren’t many people outside the
school then.

Xia Yao clutched Zhou Du’s arm abruptly, “It’s late now; are you still
planning to go back?” Zhou Du ignored his grip and turned his
392 Report
head away, refusing to look at him. Xia Yao softened his tone, “Why not we
get a room somewhere near tonight? You can head back tomorrow.”

Pleased by the ‘we’ Xia Yao used, Zhou Du turned his head back to Xia Yao
and responded, “Whatever.” Xia Yao knew from Zhou Du’s reply that he
consented, so he brought Zhou Du to a small hotel nearby.

After checking in, Xia Yao took a quick shower and lay on the bed. He
forced his eyelids open, not allowing himself doze off. Only when Zhou Du
finished his shower did he sit up and look at Zhou Du, “I got a job at the city.”

Following a pause, Zhou Du sat beside Xia Yao and raised his head to
stare at Xia Yao, “Why didn’t you tell me?”

“About what?”

“You can tell me about whatever problems you face.”

Seeing how serious Zhou Du was, Xia Yao couldn’t help himself from
getting serious too, “Zhou Du, your family is indeed more financially
capable than mine, but I can’t rely on you forever. I…”

“Why can’t you rely on me forever?” Zhou Du was irked.

Xia Yao went silent for quite some time before asking Zhou Du, “If I ask for
your help now, the one I’m relying on won’t be you, but your parents. They
don’t have any obligation to do that.” He focused his eyes on Zhou Du.

Zhou Du was dumbfounded. Only then did he understand Xia Yao’s

reasoning. That’s right. Currently, what capabilities did he have that could
allow Xia Yao to rely on him without any worries? “I get you,” Zhou Du’s
mood dampened.

Noticing how dispirited Zhou Du was, Xia Yao hugged Zhou Du’s
393 Report
waist unconsciously, set his chin onto his shoulder, and inched close to his
ear, “Zhou Du, we aren’t children anymore. We have to be independent.”

Zhou Du held his hands out and embraced Xia Yao the moment Xia Yao
snuggled him. Upon hearing what Xia Yao said, it finally dawned on him that
his views were too simplistic. The only thing he had in mind was to be with
Xia Yao. However, never did he even think about how they were going to live
together in the future.

“I got it,” Zhou Du replied, his voice lowered, “I will become a

responsible boyfriend. Wait for me, Xia Yao.”

Xia Yao fluttered his eyes shut, a smile forming on his face. He shifted
his head towards Zhou Du’s ear and gave him a kiss, “Let’s sleep.”

Euphoria engulfed Zhou Du’s heart at once. He swiftly pinned Xia Yao
down onto the bed, his hands moving down to pull Xia Yao’s pants away.
Xia Yao desperately tugged his pants up, “This isn’t what I meant when I said

Zhou Du stopped and looked at Xia Yao with puppy eyes, “You just said that
we aren’t children anymore.” His hand crept into Xia Yao’s flimsy clothing,
inching upwards.

Xia Yao’s face grew crimson as he grabbed Zhou Du’s mischievous hand,
“I’m too tired today. Maybe next time, okay?”

Seeing that Xia Yao didn’t look well, Zhou Du had his hand retreat from Xia
Yao’s clothes despite his inability to hold it in. He lay on the bed, hugging Xia
Yao’s waist tightly, “Let sleep!” Xia Yao pursed his lips up, chuckling.
Following a kiss on Zhou Du’s lips, he shut his eyes.

Zhou Du turned off all the lights, before muttering into Xia Yao’s ears in
the dark, “You only know how to tease me.” With that, the
394 Report
couple nestled together as they slept through the night.

Xia Yao didn’t have any lessons the next day. Only when he woke up did
he realize Zhou Du still had his arms around him. Shocked, he yelled at Zhou
Du to wake him up, “Wake up! Don’t you have to go to your class?”

Zhou Du woke up groggily. He picked his handphone up for a look while

yawning, “The first lesson in the afternoon is already over.”

Xia Yao panicked, “What should you do then?”

“It’s alright. I’ve already skipped the first lesson anyway. There is not
much difference in skipping a class or two.”

Upon hearing that, Xia Yao shot a glare at him, “Did you skip class
yesterday too?” Zhou Du nodded his head honestly. Xia Yao was riddled
with guilt. Zhou Du skipped his class to celebrate his birthday, but he… “Sorry,”
the more Xia Yao thought about it, the more he felt himself letting Zhou Du

After glancing at Xia Yao sheepish face, Zhou Du shifted towards Xia
Yao, “I’ll forgive you if you give me a kiss.” Without any delay, Xia Yao gave him
a peck on his lips. Zhou Du froze momentarily, before coming back to his
senses and pushed Xia Yao onto the bed.

“Mmh,” Xia Yao smacked Zhou Du’s shoulders in desperation, “I haven’t

brush my teeth.”

“I don’t mind.”

The two of them engaged in a morning exercise in a small room of the

hotel. A tint of red was still evident on Xia Yao’s face when he checked out
of the room. Completely satisfied, Zhou Du was about to walk out with his
hand holding onto Xia Yao’s. Xia Yao struggled a little, but it only made
Zhou Du’s grasp tighter. The lady boss of the hotel didn’t care at all; she
continued gnawing on melon seeds while
395 Report
watching her soap opera.

As it was school time, only Zhou Du and Xia Yao were at the bus stop
near the school. Xia Yao’s school was situated in the suburbs. Behind the
bus stop was a large tree. It was about to be 10 a.m. then. Under the
shade of the tree, the bus stop was rather cool.

On cloud nine, Zhou Du continued holding onto Xia Yao’s hand,

refusing to let go. “Enough. I have to go to school,” Xia Yao wanted to
retrieve his hand from Zhou Du’s grasp.

However, Zhou Du teased Xia Yao shamelessly, “Sure. Just give me

another kiss, and I will let you go.”

“Hey Zhou Du, stop it,” the tip of Xia Yao’s ears blushed red. He used all
his might to struggle free from Zhou Du’s hand. “I’ll be going,” Xia Yao
took a step back. Zhou Du took a step forward in response. Amused by
Zhou Du’s actions, Xia Yao surveyed the surrounding to ensure no one
was around before kissing on Zhou Du’s lips swiftly. He was about to
leave when Zhou Du pulled him back to his side to give him an aggressive
kiss before letting him go.

The two of them locked their eyes onto each other, their longing gaze as
sweet as honey. They weren’t willing to part, but unfortunately,
the killjoy bus was already at the bus stop.

“Go on,” Xia Yao waved his hand at him. Only then did Zhou Du board
the bus reluctantly. After watching the bus until it was out of his sight, Xia
Yao headed back to school.

A black BMW was on the other side of the road. A middle-aged man in his
40s who wore a fitting suit was in it. He gazed out of half- opened car
window with his lips pursed wordlessly, having a full view of the scene in the
bus stop. Closer scrutiny of the man’s appearance would reveal the
resemblance between his eyebrows and Xia Yao’s.

The driver observed the man at the back seat cautiously. After
396 Report
some deliberation, he asked, “Chairman Zhao, are we… still going into the

Not a trace of emotion was on Zhao WenHua’s face as he kept silent.

The driver kept his mouth shut as well, tactful about the situation. Only
after a long while did Zhao WenHua open up his mouth to speak, his voice
deep, “Go home.” He tilted his head to one side, a flicker of revulsion flashing
in his eyes. How could Xia LiChun raise his son into a person like that? That
was something he could never tolerate.

Ever since their separation at that time, Zhou Du came to visit Xia Yao less
and less. Before, even if he couldn’t manage to drop by every day, he
would still make sure that they saw each other at least two to three times a
week. And that didn’t even include their weekends. Lately however,
Zhou Du, perhaps because of school or other reasons, barely managed
to make time for Xia Yao at all, sometimes even only seeing him once
after two whole weeks.

Xia Yao found that this new arrangement actually relaxed him, he’d
recently found two part-time jobs, both private tutoring. On the weekends he
taught a year ten boy, while at six to eight in the afternoons, he would
teach a year nine girl –tutoring English in both cases.

He was paid hourly in both jobs and if this continued, Xia Yao would
be able to pay all of the next semester’s school fees by himself. If he
was lucky, he might even be able to tackle his living expenses.

After starting this new and far busier schedule, Xia Yao slowly began
to push Zhou Du towards the back of his mind – that is, until he left his
female student’s home that night to walk right into a call from Zhou Du.

“Did you forget that you had a boyfriend?” Zhou Du didn’t seem to be in a
good mood.

Xiao Yao laughed softly, comforting the man on the other side.
“Sorry about that, I’ve been pretty busy with my part-time jobs, I’ve
398 Report
actually got a day off this week, why don’t I go see you?”

Zhou Du replied after a short pause. “No, you don’t have many chances
to rest these days, so just stay in school, there’s no need to run over here to

“What’s this? Are you upset?”

“No.” Zhou Du said in an offhand manner. “I’ve got something going on

over the weekend. I’ll go over to you next week.”

Xia Yao assumed that it was because he was busy with his
academics so he replied. “Alright, I’m about to get on the bus, I’ll send you
a message once I get to my bedroom.”

“Wait a second.” Zhou Du said, thinking that Xia Yao was hanging up.
From the other line came a ‘chu’ then the voice complacently demanded,
“You gotta give me a kiss before you can hang up.”

Xia Yao couldn’t help but laugh a little helplessly, then as Zhou Du had
done, gave the speaker of his phone a kiss before hanging up. He didn’t
even manage to make it to the bus station when a black BMW slowed to a
stop by his side.

As though he had felt it, Xia Yao turned his head to throw a glance at the
car next to him. At this moment, the car window slowly slid down to reveal
a face that seemed to Xia Yao both foreign and familiar.

Within a private section in a Japanese styled teahouse, Xia Yao sat facing
the person in front of him with an expressionless face. The scent of
sandalwood seemed to make the small room descend into an even deeper
tranquillity. Tea sat in front of Xia Yao, and from it rose pale, white smoke
that carried the scent of the beverage and drifted across his nose.

Zhao WenHua picked up his tea, gently swirled the liquid around a little
before tasting it by taking a miniscule amount.
399 Report
“I think you should know who I am.” He leisurely set his tea back down on
the surface of the shortened table they sat at.

Xia Yao replied without any emotion. “Who you are? What should I know
about who you are.”

Zhao WenHua had kept his skin in excellent condition, if you didn’t inspect it
carefully, it was difficult for one to pick up any wrinkles on his face. He didn’t
seem to enjoy smiling very much, his laugh lines were extremely shallow.
However, as he processed Xia Yao’s reply, the corners of his mouth
seemed to lift slightly.

“Genetically speaking, I am your father.”

Xia Yao clenched his fists tightly at his sides.

“Of course, legally speaking, I am also your father.”

“Father?” Xia Yao sent him a provoking glare.

Zhao WenHua’s expression didn’t budge an inch, “Of course, you can
deny this. But these are unchangeable truths, aren’t they?” He lifted up the
kettle that by to his side and poured Xia Yao another cup of tea.

The fury on Xia Yao’s face flashed in and out in an instant, he tried his best
to tell himself to calm down before rising to his feet. Then, without
attempting to hide his condescending manner in his words at all he said, “I
apologise, you can claim anyone to be your son but I have zero interest in
the matter. Moreover, please never contact me again, same to that wife of

After he finished that last sentence, he picked up the schoolbag that sat
beside him and prepared to leave. Just as Xia Yao was about to push open
the big wooden door that beckoned him towards his freedom, Zhao
WenHua opened his mouth again from behind him.

“Does your mother know that you’ve been kissing a man on the
400 Report

Xia Yao felt his body give an involuntary shiver, the blood drained from his
face as he spun around furiously to glare at Zhao WenHua with a passion.

The slight traces of a smile that had hung on the corners of Zhao
WenHua’s mouth previously were completely gone, wiped away to be replaced
by eyes without even a speck of feeling. With those eyes, he spoke to Xia
Yao. “It would be in your best interest to terminate all contact and relation
between you and that man.”

The knuckles that Xia Yao was clenching his school bag with had turned
white, after taking in a shaky breath, he opened the door and left. Xia Yao
seemed to have lost much more than blood from his face in his short exchange
with Zhao WenHua, he had arrived in his room only half alive; what he
couldn’t understand was how Zhao WenHua knew about his and Zhou Du’s

Whenever he thought about Xia mother from his past life finding out
about Xia Yao liking men and the things that she would say to him, his
heart clenched with unbelievable pain. He absolutely could not let his mother
know. This was his only route of thought – for he didn’t want to be forced to
break away from his mother in this life too.

He turned on his phone to find that Zhou Du had sent him many
messages. All he could do for a while was stare at those messages before
he finally painstakingly replied with, [I’m very tired today, so I’m preparing to
sleep, you should also rest earlier. Good night.]

Xia Yao’s mental state had been in shambles for the past two days, he knew
that he couldn’t hide this from his mother his whole life, but now just wasn’t
the right time to tell her.

He didn’t know what type of sickness his mother had died from in his
previous life and he was terrified that receiving the news that he
401 Report
and Zhou Du were together would affect her health. If, like in his past life, she
forced him and Zhou Du to break up, he had no guarantee on what choice
he would make if confronted with this scenario once again.

He didn’t want to lose Zhou Du, but he was even more unwilling to lose his

September passed just like that, with not many ups and downs or
surprises, as soon as October started, so did national day. Zhou Du called
him at the crack of dawn, informing him that he had booked him a plane
ticket because he wanted to go home together with him.

What Zhou Du didn’t expect was for Xia Yao to turn him down.

“Hmm, I may be delayed another two days before I can go back.” Xia Yao
could feel his conscience aching as he said the words, “So you should go
home first.”

“A two day delay? Why? Is it because of your part time jobs?”

Xia Yao gave a sound of agreement, hesitating about how he should

explain his excuse to Zhou Du. He didn’t expect Zhou Du to beat him to it,
saying, “Fine then, but you need to be careful on your way back home, once
you get back, give me a call okay?”

Xia Yao thought about the offer dubiously, he had originally thought
that Zhou Du would force him into going back with him.

“Aye, I haven’t even seen you in so long.” Zhou Du let out a sigh.
“I’ll be leaving tomorrow, won’t you see me off?” “I…”

Xia Yao didn’t even know how to reply.

“Okay, okay, I know you must be busy, right? How about I go find you in
the afternoon, are you free then?”

“Zhou Du, I…” This time Xia Yao really wasn’t using an excuse, his
402 Report
schedule in the afternoon was jam-packed with lessons and he had to tutor
that little girl at night.

Zhou Du was silent on the other line for a very long time, just as Xia Yao
thought he was about to get angry, he calmly said to Xia Yao, “Fine then, we
can meet once we get back to H city.”

After the call ended, Xia Yao felt terrible. His heart was wrenching with guilt
and cowering with fright. He hadn’t expected Zhao WenHua to turn up at his
school that day at noon.

Xia Yao felt nauseous just looking at the man’s silhouette. He wanted
to pretend that he hadn’t seen the other male so badly, but the car’s driver
dutifully stood at Xia Yao’s side, murmuring something to him quietly.
The students coming and going sent Xia Yao sideways glances as they
walked past. Xia Yao clenched his fists before he finally followed the driver
onto the car.

“Are you planning on returning home for national day?” Zhao WenHua
sat in the back of the car as he leisurely inquired.

Xia Yao merely hung his head, unwilling to speak to the other man.

“In your heart, you probably hate me very much.” Zhao WenHua tilted his
head and gave Xia Yao a once over, the boy’s eyebrows were slanting
downwards towards their corners, looking so much like he had at the same
age. In the depths of his innermost heart, a shred of foreign emotion formed;
this feeling is more commonly known as fatherly love.

Zhao WenHua let out a sigh. “I’m only doing this for your own good,
you’re still young, unable to separate the blacks and whites of the world. I just
don’t want to see you walking down a bent path.”

Xia Yao suddenly raised his head to give Zhao WenHua a glare of utter
ridicule while his mouth slowly formed a mocking sort of smile. “If my path is
bent, then it’s been bent for almost two decades now.”

Zhao WenHua’s brows couldn’t help furrowing at Xia Yao’s

Before his last session for the morning had even finished, Zhou Du had
already picked up his books and sneaked out of the classroom. As he
passed the person sitting next to him, who also happened to be his
roommate, he shoved his books into the other’s arms, whispering to
him. “I’m leaving first so please take my books back.”

The teacher at the podium was fiddling with something with her head
down so by the time she had looked up again, Zhou Du was gone.

Since Xia Yao was busy in the afternoon, then he’s just see him at noon

Zhou Du sprinted across campus to arrive at the school entrance; he

spared a glance at the public bus stop stationed next to the school
before deciding to take a taxi after all.

He really wanted to see Xia Yao. The faster the better.

Taking a taxi from where he was to Xia Yao’s wasn’t cheap and
although Zhou Dou didn’t use to mind how much money he threw around,
after he had started working himself, he had finally realised how difficult it
was to earn cash.

He boosted up his confidence and ran towards Xia Yao’s bedroom

entrance, only to find there wasn’t a trace to be found of the man.

“He’s not in.” Xia Yao’s roommate had recognised Zhou Du and knew
who he was immediately. Because of this, he didn’t even need Zhou Du to
open his mouth before he had answered his unspoken question.

“Do you know where he went?”

The roommate shook his head. “I have no idea, he might’ve gone
404 Report
out for food.”

After Zhou Du heard the information the roommate had provided, he

slipped his phone out of his pocket to call Xia Yao, however, a male voice
drifted to his ears from behind him. “You should try to find him, he just got
in a car and left.”

“Left? Left to where?”

The roommate who’d just appeared had probably just came back so he put
his things on the table before answering Zhou Du, “I don’t know, I only saw
that they drove away from the front of the school. I think it was a man who
picked him up.” As the roommate finished saying this, he watched Zhou Du
carefully to spot the other man’s reactions.

In truth, Xia Yao’s connections in the dorms weren’t bad at all, he was
considered good looking and his personality was great too; common
sense dictated that a guy like him should have been snatched up ages
