One morning, two or three days later, Ning Junyan forgot a report at home when he went to work, so Chen Yuncheng took the subway to the hospital to deliver it to him.

       When he arrived at the hospital, Ning Junyan’s departments started ward rounds.

       Chen Yuncheng stood in the corridor and saw the department head leading a group of doctors in white coats out of the ward and then into the next ward.

       Ning Junyan did not walk behind the department head and came out after most people had left the ward. Beside Ning Junyan was his junior, whom Chen Yuncheng saw once during their dinner party that night.

       What could the two men talk about? Ning Junyan’s face was devoid of emotion as usual, but his junior brother smiled slightly when Ning Junyan spoke, and his eyes curved behind his lenses.

       After listening to his junior, Ning Junyan lowered his head and said a few words to him with a serious expression. As soon as he raised his head, he saw Chen Yuncheng.

       He immediately strode towards Chen Yuncheng.

       Chen Yuncheng smiled at him and handed him the report in his hand, “Is this it?”

       Ning Jun stretched out his hand to take it and said “En” before looking at Chen Yuncheng again, “Have you had breakfast?”

       When the alarm clock rang this morning, Ning Junyan hugged Chen Yuncheng and refused to get up. In the end, he left in a hurry, so neither of them had time to eat breakfast.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Not yet. Let’s go outside and buy something later.”

       At this time, Ning Junyan’s junior came over. He obviously still remembered Chen Yuncheng and said with a smile, “Are you not going to introduce your friend, Senior Ning?”

       Chen Yuncheng looked at the young man in a white coat opposite him and took the initiative to extend a hand, “Chen Yuncheng.”

       “Huo Xiao,” the other party quickly shook his hand and introduced himself in a friendly manner.

       Ning Junyan’s eyes fell on the hands that were holding each other, and he said slowly, “This is my old1Junyan was going to call him lao po (wife). The lao in lao po also means old—”

       Chen Yuncheng raised his hand, grabbed Ning Junyan’s arm, pulled it, interrupting his words, and then said to Huo Xiao, “I’m his old friend.”

       Although Huo Xiao felt that the atmosphere was a bit strange, he still nodded and said, “I was in the same major as Senior Ning in undergraduate studies and afterwards stayed in the same laboratory together.”

       Chen Yuncheng looked at Ning Junyan, “Then it seems you guys are busy. I will go first.”

       Ning Junyan said, “I’ll see you off.”

       “Don’t you still have to do ward rounds?” Chen Yuncheng glanced in the direction of the ward.

       Ning Junyan put his arms around Chen Yuncheng’s shoulders and walked towards the elevator, “We haven’t reached the bed I’m in charge of yet.”

       After walking all the way to the elevator, Chen Yuncheng noticed that Ning Junyan’s expression was a bit cold and asked, “What’s wrong?”

       Ning Junyan said, “Why can’t we talk about our relationship?”

       Chen Yuncheng was a little helpless, “Then can you say it properly? Change to a suitable title.”

       “Are you not my wife anymore? You even agreed to be called that in bed.” Ning Junyan’s tone was cold.

       At this moment, the elevator door opened, and two people came out. Chen Yuncheng stepped aside in embarrassment, and when everyone had left, he lowered his voice and said to Ning Junyan, “You also said about being on the bed. Isn’t it awkward to say it out here?” After that, he suddenly lowered his head uncomfortably and said, “Besides, I haven’t asked you what you and your junior were sneaking around back there talking about.”

       Chen Yuncheng had never been a person who was too fussy. After saying this, he himself felt that he was quite unreasonable and felt a little embarrassed.

       However, Ning Junyan asked, “What?”

       Chen Yuncheng felt that he was too baffled, reached out, pressed the elevator button hard, and said, “It’s nothing. I’ll go first.”

       Ning Junyan grabbed his wrist, “No, you’re not allowed to leave. You have to explain clearly first.”

       “What?” Chen Yuncheng didn’t look at him at all.

       Ning Junyan leaned into his ear and asked softly, “Are you jealous?”

       Chen Yuncheng said without thinking, “I’m not.”

       Ning Junyan looked at him and said nothing.

       Chen Yuncheng pushed him, “Go back and do your ward round.”

       Ning Junyan said, “He was telling me about the patient he admitted yesterday and was going to operate today.”

       Chen Yuncheng wanted to say that the junior was so happy even when they were only talking about a patient, but after thinking about it, he waved his hand and said, “Got it.”

       At the end of the ward round, Ning Junyan saw Huo Xiao walking in front and suddenly called him to a halt.

       Huo Xiao turned around and asked, “What’s the matter, Senior?”

       Ning Junyan said, “That’s my boyfriend.” He still remembered that Chen Yuncheng didn’t want him to say that he was his wife outside.

       Huo Xiao was stunned for a moment, “What?” After a while, he reacted and opened his eyes wide, “Boyfriend? You mean that Mr—Chen just now?”

       Ning Junyan responded indifferently, passed by Huo Xiao, and walked straight forward without saying anything.

       Chen Yuncheng went back to the trade market after having breakfast. There was an old customer in the store who directly told Guan Anlin what he wanted to pick up the goods. Chen Yuncheng greeted him, then sat at the door and stared at the big tree outside in a daze.

       After finishing his work, Guan Anlin walked over to Chen Yuncheng and sat down, asking him what he was thinking.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Do you think Ning Junyan and I have something in common?”

       “I think?” Guan Anlin was baffled, “How do I know if you have anything in common?”

       Chen Yuncheng’s tone was a little sad, “I just suddenly feel that there is a big gap with him. Even if I make money, there is still a gap.”

       “In what way? Academic qualifications?” Guan Anlin asked.

       Chen Yuncheng couldn’t describe it for a while, “It’s not just that, right?”

       Guan Anlin thought for a while and said, “There’s a bit of a gap, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re any worse than him, isn’t your social experience richer than his? Just like me, I also spent two years in jail. This kind of experience would not be available to ordinary people.”

       Chen Yuncheng looked at him coldly, “That’s really something to be proud of.”

       Guan Anlin didn’t seem to understand the sarcasm in his words and continued seriously, “Besides, if you don’t work with him as a colleague, it’s enough if your personality and that aspect are compatible. How much more do you need to have in common? You can’t exchange medical knowledge while having sex at the same time, right?”

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t say anything, mainly because he didn’t want to go along with his nonsense.

       Guan Anlin was very concerned about him, “Why did you suddenly think of this?”

       Chen Yuncheng said slowly, “He recently had a junior working with him, and I saw that they were chatting quite happily.”

       He actually knew that it was a bit unfair to say that to Ning Junyan. When Ning Junyan talked to Huo Xiao, his attitude was not the least bit ambiguous, nor could he say if Ning Junyan was happy or not. But it was because Chen Yuncheng looked at Huo Xiao too brightly, and it was the first time that such a person suddenly appeared beside Ning Junyan, which made Chen Yuncheng feel a little uneasy.

       He didn’t want to be jealous, nor did he have any reason to be, but there were times when his own mind was out of control. He could only try his best to keep himself from showing it before Ning Junyan.

       “Junior?” Guan Anlin’s thinking was very simple, “A man?”

       “What else?”

       Guan Anlin looked at him strangely, “Then what are you afraid of? How many men don’t like women and only like another big man? Do you think they are all like you? No matter how handsome Ning Junyan is, even if he stood naked in front of me, I won’t be turned on at all, okay?”

       The image of Ning Junyan taking off his clothes unconsciously appeared in Chen Yuncheng’s mind, and he gritted his teeth and said to Guan Anlin, “Thank you for your comfort.”

The author has something to say:
Maybe one more chapter and this extra will be over. I am going to think about writing something else

Chen Yuncheng was asked ‘what else’ because the raw indicated the junior was male instead of just a neutral gender junior, and he found it weird that Guan Anlin still needed to ask whether the junior was male or not.
