Ning Junyan stretched out a hand in front of Chen Yuncheng, waiting for Chen Yuncheng to hold his hand and leave with him.

       Before Chen Yuncheng could speak, Guan Anlin stepped forward angrily and shouted, “Where are you taking him?”

       Ning Junyan did not pay any attention to him and did not even look at him, but only looked at Chen Yuncheng and asked, “You’re going to live here?”

       Guan Anlin couldn’t bear his tone, “What’s wrong with living here?”

       Ning Junyan’s eyes finally fell on Guan Anlin, and he said calmly, “I don’t want my wife to live in a place like this and sleep in the same bed with another man.”

       Guan Anlin was going to be angry, but when he heard the word ‘wife’, the words he was about to say stuck in his throat, and he didn’t react for a long time.

       “Knock it off,” Chen Yuncheng had been quarrelling with Ning Junyan all night, and now he felt that he had almost sobered up. He passed Guan Anlin and walked in front of Ning Junyan. He held his hand first, and then said, “Come here and I’ll tell you.”

       When he saw them holding hands, Guan Anlin suddenly had goosebumps all over his body. He felt horrified and looked at Chen Yuncheng, not even remembering to be angry.

       Chen Yuncheng pulled Ning Junyan, at first he couldn’t pull him, but then he stretched out his arms and hugged Ning Junyan’s waist, half pushing and half hugging him to let him walk outside.

       When he passed by Guan Anlin, Chen Yuncheng said to him, “Go to bed first, I’ll explain to you later.”

       Guan Anlin didn’t want to believe what he saw, he was so angry that he said to Chen Yuncheng, “Don’t be afraid of him, if he dares to force you, I will beat him up for you.”

       Before Chen Yuncheng could say anything, Ning Junyan said calmly, “It’s not like you can beat me.”

       They fought once, and at that time Guan Anlin was no match for Ning Junyan at all, but this kind of provocation was absolutely intolerable to Guan Anlin. He clenched his fists and was about to come over.

       Chen Yuncheng hurriedly stood between the two of them. Although he was standing in front of Ning Junyan, he held Ning Junyan’s hand with his hands behind his back, and said to Guan Anlin, “I’m not being forced, go to sleep.”

       Guan Anlin was still staring at Ning Junyan with a deadly gaze.

       Ning Junyan lowered his head slightly, looked at Chen Yuncheng’s hairy head, and his slender fingers running through his palm.

       Chen Yuncheng was tickled by him and held his fingers tightly.

       Guan Anlin glanced at Chen Yuncheng at this moment, and asked, “Are you going to go with him?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Not going. I’ll come back after saying a few words with him. You go to bed first.”

       Guan Anlin finally compromised, he finally gave Ning Junyan one last fierce glare, turned around and walked towards the inner room.

       Chen Yuncheng pulled Ning Junyan through the shelves, went to the door and opened the small door. He went out and looked around and found that the shop that had been lit up earlier had gone dark again before he pulled Ning Junyan out and stood by the door to speak to him in a low voice.

       Ning Junyan said, “You have to come with me.”

       Chen Yuncheng raised his head and looked at him, “Where to? I live well here, and it’s convenient for me to work.” The new shop had a lot of things to do, so he could live here to save on rent and not waste time travelling.

       Ning Junyan said, “You sleep in the same bed with him.”

       Chen Yuncheng raised his hand and rubbed his forehead, “I didn’t share the same bed with him, he slept on the upper bunk.”

       “That’s also a bed, and you still let him sleep on top of you.”

       “That’s not,” Chen Yuncheng held his hand, “you can’t mess around with me.”

       Ning Junyan looked at him without saying anything.

       Chen Yuncheng then continued, “When I first came out to work, I lived in a dormitory. I don’t know how many people I slept with on bunk beds. Some of them slept for one night and never saw each other again. Are you going to keep this up?”

       “I said I’d come over to stay with you and you wouldn’t, but you’re willing to stay here with him.”

       Chen Yuncheng looked at Ning Junyan and didn’t speak for a long time.

       Ning Junyan pinched his chin with his fingers and shook it lightly, “Speak.”

       Chen Yuncheng said: “Because Guan Anlin and I are brothers. One day when he falls in love and gets married and wants to move out I will give him my blessing and won’t be sad; but what about me if one day you don’t want me anymore?”

       Ning Junyan’s expression became serious, “I won’t want you.”

       Chen Yuncheng shook his head, “After my father died, my mother also said that she would not leave me; after you came to the foster father’s place, I also thought you would not leave, but what happened?”

       At that time Ning Junyan was not in his right mind and couldn’t recall his identity or his family. Although Chen Yuncheng often asked him and would tell him to think hard and think about it so he could go home, deep down there was always a little selfishness, thinking that if Ning Junyan could not remember, he could always stay with him.

       Until one day Ning Junyan told Chen Yuncheng that he remembered, he remembered his name, where his home was, and who his parents were.

       Chen Yuncheng’s eyes widened, and he said, “Then go back quickly, find a chance to sneak away and don’t come back.” But that night, he lay in bed with his back to Ning Junyan and cried alone in secret for a long time.

       Later, he always thought that he had just wished for too much and that was why he was disappointed. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be so sad when Ning Junyan would just leave.

       “Are you blaming me?” By now, Ning Junyan was standing in front of him and asked him.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “No, I’m just blaming myself. I don’t have the ability to hold everything in my hands and easily let others take away the most important person to me.”

       Ning Junyan knitted his brows. He looked at Chen Yuncheng for a while, and slowly said, “You didn’t agree when I asked you to marry me, you didn’t agree when I asked you to live with me, and then you carried all the pressure on yourself when it was clear that many things were not your responsibility.” Having said that, Ning Junyan cupped Chen Yuncheng’s face with his hands, and kissed his lips, “Why can’t you rely on me?”

       Chen Yuncheng’s eyes were slightly red, and he said, “I’m sorry.”

       “Look, you always feel that you are not strong enough, you are not good enough, and you have not taken responsibility, so you have to apologize to me,” Ning Junyan let go, “You want me to give you time to wait for you, I can. But I don’t know how long I have to wait, and I don’t know what I should do to make you accept me. I’m afraid that if I do too much I’ll hurt you, and if I do too little you’ll want to hide.”

       Chen Yuncheng looked at him and said nothing.

       Ning Junyan put his hands into the pockets of his jacket, and took two steps back, “Go back and rest, I’m leaving first. Think it over carefully and then tell me what I should do.”

       Chen Yuncheng subconsciously took a step forward but finally stopped. It was too late, and Ning Junyan had to drive back since he had to go to work tomorrow, Chen Yuncheng felt that he should not continue pestering him about these things now.

       Ning Junyan turned around and walked towards the entrance of the market.

       Chen Yuncheng looked at his back and said, “Be careful.”

       Ning Junyan didn’t respond. He just walked a distance and couldn’t help raising his hand to hammer his head. He began to have a headache again, but he didn’t stop and continued to walk forward.

       Chen Yuncheng went back to the store, locked the door and went to the bathroom to wash up. While lying on the bed, he heard Guan Anlin, who was on the upper bunk, turned over.

       “Aren’t you asleep?” He asked softly.

       Guan Anlin said, “Yeah.”

       They were all silent for a while.

       Guan Anlin asked him, “He’s gone?”

       Chen Yuncheng replied, “He has to go to work tomorrow.”

       There was another moment of silence, and all that could be heard was the movement of Guan Anlin turning over restlessly.

       “Are you in that kind of relationship with him?” Guan Anlin couldn’t help but ask.

       Chen Yuncheng put his hands behind his head, opened his eyes and replied, “Yes.”

       Guan Anlin couldn’t stop the surprise in his tone, “Are you gay?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “I guess so now.”

       “fvck,” Guan Anlin cursed, “No wonder you refuse to see my sister.”

       Chen Yuncheng said to him, “Whether I am gay or not, your sister is not suitable for me.”

       Guan Anlin poked his head out from the upper bunk and looked carefully at Chen Yuncheng.

       Chen Yuncheng asked him, “What’s wrong?”

       Guan Anlin asked, “When did you discover that you like men?”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t really want to answer his question, so he didn’t speak.

       Guan Anlin pressed on, “Then have you ever liked me?”

       Chen Yuncheng looked at him.

       Guan Anlin turned over, lay back on the bed, and said in a hurried tone, “I think I still like women.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “That’s good, you mustn’t like men.”

       Guan Anlin’s tone was also cautious: “Don’t you want to give a woman a try?”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t understand the meaning of his words, “What?”

       Guan Anlin said, “When you go out from the north entrance of the market, aren’t there many massage parlours and hairdressers in that area? If you go into any one of them and ask if there are any special services, you will be asked to choose a woman and take her to a private room.”

       The more Chen Yuncheng heard the more he felt that something was wrong, he asked Guan Anlin, “Do you often go to that place?”

       Guan Anlin said, “I didn’t, I heard it from others.”

       Chen Yuncheng was a little amused, “I don’t need it.”

       Guan Anlin was undeterred, “If you give women a try, you won’t like men anymore. That Ning guy, what’s the use of being handsome? Does he have breasts? Are they soft to squeeze?

       Chen Yuncheng was already very tired. When he heard Guan Anlin’s words, his thoughts diverged a little. He thought of Ning Junyan’s chest muscles, which were not exaggerated but very firm. He also remembered the kiss this evening and the temperature of Ning Junyan’s body. He was aroused enthusiastically but was interrupted when he was hard, and now he was aroused by Guan Anlin’s words again.

       For so many years, Chen Yuncheng didn’t feel that he had too strong a need, but now he realized that it was because he hadn’t met someone he liked, and he hadn’t really experienced something that made him happy.

       Guan Anlin on the upper bunk was still trying to instil in him the benefits of women. However Chen Yuncheng’s head was full of Ning Junyan, he couldn’t listen anymore, and said to Guan Anlin, “Stop talking.”

       Guan Anlin stopped immediately, he thought his words had hit Chen Yuncheng and made Chen Yuncheng imagine that the woman’s body gave him a reaction, so he smiled silently and said, “Okay I’ll stop talking, go to sleep.” He thought to himself that when he was free in a couple of days, he would take Chen Yuncheng to experience it for himself.
