Something Is Wrong with the Capture Target

Chapter 14

       If the female voice hadn’t coldly announced Zhan Weiyang’s today’s score every night, Zhan Weiyang would have thought his System was dead. But his score hadn’t changed for a long time either, and he wished it was dead.

       After suffering knee pain for two or three days, Zhan Weiyang basically stopped limping when walking. It was no longer painful to stand up and sit down in class every day.

       Moreover, it had been raining at night for the past few days, and the hot temperature that had lasted all summer had finally begun to slowly drop. Grandma took out her dark red patterned jacket and put it on, always telling Zhan Weiyang that he was underdressed and that he should be careful of catching a cold.

       Zhan Weiyang went to the bathroom with Chen Youyou after class. When he came back, he saw a girl sitting in his seat, chatting animatedly with her deskmate, Zhou Hanyi.

       The girl’s name was Xu Yuxuan. She was a good friend of Zhou Hanyi. She had a lively personality and a hot temper. Zhan Weiyang was a little afraid of her. He stood at the back door of the classroom and looked at her silently, not daring to go back to his seat.

       Chen Youyou pulled his arm and told him to sit down in his row first. Chen Youyou’s deskmate was their class monitor. After class, she went to find her boyfriend whom she was secretly in a relationship.

       Zhan Weiyang sat down next to Chen Youyou and heard Xu Yuxuan say to Zhou Hanyi, “Do you know that Xie Ling in the first year of high school?”

       Chen Youyou glanced at Zhan Weiyang.

       Zhan Weiyang heard Zhou Hanyi say, “Of course I know, that’s the one who is very handsome.”

       Xu Yuxuan said, “I heard that his family is quite poor.”

       “Oh,” Zhou Hanyi’s tone was not very enthusiastic.

       Xu Yuxuan was obviously very interested in Xie Ling, “Someone saw him working at night.”

       Zhou Hanyi said, “Does he have a girlfriend?”

       Xu Yuxuan became cold and indifferent, “Isn’t there a girl in his class who eats with him every day?”

       Zhou Hanyi smiled and said, “There must be many people chasing him.”

       The two of them changed the topic at this point, and Xu Yuxuan started talking about a novel she had read recently.

       Zhan Weiyang kept listening to them talking and felt that he was very nervous. After a long time, he mustered up the courage to turn his head and shouted, “Xu Yuxuan.”

       Xu Yuxuan was stunned for a moment, realising that this was the first time Zhan Weiyang took the initiative to talk to her and asked curiously, “What is it?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Do you know where Xie Ling works?”

       Instead of answering, Xu Yuxuan asked back, “Why are you asking that?”

       Zhan Weiyang didn’t know how to answer this question.

       Chen Youyou turned around and said, “He also, wants to find a place to work, so he just a-ask.”

       Xu Yuxuan smiled and said, “O-okay. I heard he’s at the Food Joy Fast Food on Jinfeng Road. There are also girls who go there to eat just to see him.”

       Chen Youyou was not happy that Xu Yuxuan imitated him, but since the other party returned to his question, he could only say ‘thank you’ reluctantly.

       The two people turned back, and Zhan Weiyang grabbed Chen Youyou’s sleeve and said, “Let’s go check it out tonight.”

       Chen Youyou asked him, “Eating dinner?”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded, “Let’s eat.”

       Chen Youyou said, “Then, I’ll call, my mother in the, afternoon.”

       In the afternoon, Zhan Weiyang also called home. He used a landline and squatted behind the teaching building to make the call secretly. Because the head teacher did not allow them to bring mobile phones to school, he usually turned off the sound and hid them in his school bag.

       The phone rang several times before it was connected. The person who answered the phone was Auntie Luo.

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Auntie Luo, I won’t be back for dinner tonight.”

       Auntie Luo asked him, “Then where are you going to eat?”

       Zhan Weiyang lied, “My classmate invited me to dinner.”

       At this time, Grandma’s voice came from the other side of the phone, “Who is it?”

       Auntie Luo answered Grandma, “Yangyang, he said that his classmates would treat him to dinner tonight, and he wouldn’t be back.”

       Grandma said, “Why isn’t Yangyang back either? No one has come back today at all.”

       Zhan Weiyang heard this and asked Auntie Luo, “Qing ge also not coming back?”

       Auntie Luo responded, “Well, Pei Qing won’t come back either.”

       Zhan Weiyang said ‘Oh’ and then said, “Then I won’t be back either. Goodbye, Auntie Luo.” After saying that, he hung up the phone and still squatted on the ground against the wall. He picked up a fallen leaf from the tree with his fingers. He pinched the leaf stalk and turned it in two circles, thinking that he wondered where Pei Qing would go for dinner in the evening.

       After school in the afternoon, neither Zhan Weiyang nor Chen Youyou wanted to ride a bicycle, so they waited for the bus at the bus stop in front of the school and squeezed in with other students after school.

       At this time every day, the bus would be packed with students leaving school. It was so packed that there was no gap left between people. Even those of shorter stature found it difficult to breathe.

       A short girl stood between Zhan Weiyang and Chen Youyou like a piece of Oreo. The three of them were close together. Neither of them could see her face and could only chat above her head.

       Chen Youyou said, “My mother, scolded me.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “It’s all my fault.”

       Chen Youyou shook his head, “You, are my brother.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “You are so nice.” He suddenly thought that everyone was nice to him, including Chen Youyou, his older cousin, Auntie Luo, and his father and grandma. Only Zhan Weiguang was not too nice, but Zhan Weiguang did not bully him; he just did not pay much attention to him.

       After getting off the bus, the two of them walked for seven or eight minutes to find the fast food restaurant, walked in, found an empty table and sat down.

       The fast food restaurant was busy at this time, and although there wasn’t a queue yet, there were almost no empty tables.

       Chen Youyou raised his hand to call the waiter, and Zhan Weiyang was in charge of ordering. After ordering and waiting, the two of them looked together, hoping to find Xie Ling, but unfortunately, they did not see him.

       Zhan Weiyang couldn’t help but ask, “Is this the place?”

       Chen Youyou frowned, “Unless, Xu Yuxuan lied, to us.”

       Both of them felt that Xu Yuxuan would not make up a fast food restaurant to deceive them. Either that or Xie Ling wasn’t coming to work tonight.

       The food came, and when Zhan Weiyang picked up his chopsticks and was about to pick up a sweet and sour pork loin, Chen Youyou suddenly knocked Zhan Weiyang’s chopsticks with his own chopsticks, “Look, Xie Ling is here!”

       Zhan Weiyang quickly raised his head, and sure enough, he saw Xie Ling walking in from the outside. He had changed out of his school uniform, wearing a T-shirt and jeans, with headphones in his ears, and his head was slightly lowered when walking.

       He walked through the lobby of the fast food restaurant and went directly into the kitchen. After a while, he came out with a plastic bag containing a disposable lunch box and left the fast food restaurant in a hurry.

       On the way out, Xie Ling passed by two girls in school uniforms. The two girls looked excited. It seemed like what Xu Yuxuan said; there were girls from their school who came here to eat just to see Xie Ling.

       Zhan Weiyang and Chen Youyou’s seats were close to the window. His eyes followed Xie Ling as he blended into the crowd on the street and hurried forward.

       Chen Youyou said, “He must be, delivering takeout.”

       Zhan Weiyang did not answer.

       Chen Youyou said again, “I wonder if he, will come back after, we finish eating?”

       Zhan Weiyang stared outside blankly, still not answering.

       Chen Youyou said, “Will you, wait for him later? Do you, still want to say, something to him?”

       Zhan Weiyang suddenly stood up.

       Chen Youyou looked at him in surprise, then turned to look outside the window but didn’t see anything.

       Zhan Weiyang looked anxious, couldn’t control himself, and wanted to run outside. He said, “Wait for me. I have something to do.”

       Chen Youyou opened his eyes wide and looked confused, “Where are you going?”

       Zhan Weiyang had already walked outside. He said, “Keep an eye on Xie Ling for me. I’ll be back in a moment.” After saying that, he dodged the two female classmates who were looking for seats and ran out in a hurry.

       It was evening, and there was no sun today. The sky in the distance was simply white amid the hazy grey, and the street lamps on the roadside had already lit up at some point. Their warm orange light illuminated the surroundings.

       This street had many restaurants and shops selling marinated and cooked food. Many young people who had just finished work were searching for restaurants, while middle-aged people were buying dishes from the cooked food shops to take home for their families.

       Zhan Weiyang ran through the crowd, always looking at the slender figure in front of him until, at an intersection, the person in front stopped and waited for a red light. He ran up, stood in front of him, panting heavily, and grabbed the person’s wrist, blurting out, “Gege.”

       Pei Qing was obviously a little surprised and raised his eyebrows.

       Before he could speak, a young woman next to him looked at Zhan Weiyang, smiled and said, “Your little brother?”

Chapter 13

       The sun seemed to come out too early on Sunday morning. Zhan Weiyang hadn’t gotten enough sleep before the sun’s rays shone in through the window and onto the bed, reflecting the pattern of the curtains on his quilt.

       He slowly turned over in the quilt, stretched out a few fingers to grab the edge of the quilt, and pulled his head up into the quilt until most of his face was covered, and then his fingers slightly loosened, weakly. He was resting on the edge of the quilt and didn’t want to move.

       He slept until noon and didn’t get up until Pei Qing came to wake him up.

       When Zhan Weiyang got out of bed, he found that his right knee hurt more than yesterday. It hurt even when he bent it even slightly. He put on a pair of long pants and walked downstairs slowly with his right leg straight.

       When his grandmother saw him walking downstairs, with a worried look on her face, she said, “Why is it worse than yesterday?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “I’m fine.”

       Grandma waved to him, “Come here.”

       Zhan Weiyang tried hard not to look so limp when he walked to his grandma.

       Grandma was sitting on the sofa, bent down and rolled up Zhan Weiyang’s trouser legs to look at the injury on his knee. She couldn’t see if there was something wrong with it, so she had to raise her head and shout, “Qingqing.”

       Pei Qing was helping Auntie Luo set the table. When he heard her call, he put the chopsticks in his hands on the dining table and walked towards them, “Grandma.”

       Grandma said, “You take Yangyang to the hospital this afternoon. I’m afraid he may have broken a bone.”

       Pei Qing squatted down, gently poked Zhan Weiyang’s red and swollen knees with his fingers, and then looked up at him.

       Zhan Weiyang opened his eyes wide and pursed his lips, shaking his head at him.

       Pei Qing asked, “Does it hurt?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “It doesn’t hurt very much.”

       Pei Qing took a look at her grandma’s anxious expression and said to Zhan Weiyang, “It’s better to go to the hospital.”

       Zhan Weiyang suddenly bent down, put his arms around Pei Qing’s shoulders, and whispered in his ear, “I don’t want to go to the hospital.”

       Grandma’s ears were not that good as she was older, and she couldn’t hear clearly what Zhan Weiyang said.

       After he finished speaking, Zhan Weiyang still held Pei Qing’s shoulders and looked at him nervously.

       Pei Qing then said, “Bend your knees.”

       Zhan Weiyang moved slowly, endured the pain, and squatted down. He then stood up, holding onto the sofa.

       Pei Qing stood up and said to Grandma, “The bones are fine. If he breaks his bones, he won’t be able to move. Don’t worry, Grandma.”

       Grandma said, “As long as his bones are not broken.”

       Pei Qing said, “I will buy him some bruise-healing medicine to promote blood circulation and remove blood clots and spray it on him in the afternoon. He should be fine soon.”

       Grandma nodded, “Alright then, let’s eat first.”

       After lunch, Grandma and Auntie Luo saw that the weather was fine and pushed the wheelchair out for a walk in the park again.

       Pei Qing went to buy medicine for Zhan Weiyang, and Zhan Weiyang was the only one left at home.

       Just as Zhan Weiyang limped his way up the stairs to the second floor, he heard the sound of the doorbell downstairs. Somewhat displeased, he peeked out of the window of his room to see Chen Youyou standing at his doorstep, holding a plastic bag and looking bored as he waited for someone to answer the door.

       “Chen Youyou!” Zhan Weiyang felt strange and called him from the window.

       Chen Youyou waved his hand, “Hurry, come open the door.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “My knees hurt.”

       Chen Youyou said, “It’s so hot.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “I just came up.”

       Chen Youyou said, “Do you have ice, coke at home?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “I’ll be there. I’ll open the door for you.”

       He closed the window, left the room, walked downstairs with one leg straight, holding on to the handrail, and walked over to help Chen Youyou open the door to his home.

       Chen Youyou came in, grabbed his clothes, fanned himself, and handed him the plastic bag.

       Zhan Weiyang lowered his head and asked, “What?”

       Chen Youyou said, “Gr4p3s.”

       Zhan Weiyang looked at him without knowing why.

       Chen Youyou said, “I t-told my Mom that you fell and got hurt, and I’m coming to see you. My Mom asked me to buy some fruit.”

       Zhan Weiyang said quickly, “Thank you, Auntie.”

       Chen Youyou waved his hand, changed his shoes and walked inside. This was not the first time he came to Zhan Weiyang’s house, and he didn’t need Zhan Weiyang to lead the way. As he walked, he said, “Ice Coke, Ice Coke.”

       Zhan Weiyang followed him and said, “There is no ice coke. There is ice cream.”

       Chen Youyou said, “That’s fine.”

       After eating an ice cream, Chen Youyou stretched his legs comfortably, half lying and half sitting on the sofa.

       He casually found an excuse to go out, mainly to play games with Zhan Weiyang and to visit Zhan Weiyang’s injury. Seeing Zhan Weiyang limping, he asked in a perfunctory manner, “Is it still painful?”

       Zhan Weiyang replied, “It’s okay.”

       Chen Youyou said next, “Then let’s play games.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Okay.”

       The two of them were sitting on the sofa, playing mobile games as a team.

       Zhan Weiyang’s gaming skills were as good as his basketball skills; in fact, he was even better than Chen Youyou, able to carry him to higher ranks in the game.

       But just as they were starting their second game, Zhan Weiyang heard the sound of keys unlocking the door. He instinctively put down his phone and turned to look, and saw Pei Qing coming in from the outside with a plastic bag in his hand.

       Zhan Weiyang stood up quickly and called out, “Qing ge, you are back!” He walked towards the door, remembering that Pei Qing had gone out to buy medicine for him.

       Pei Qing glanced at Chen Youyou, who was focused on playing games on the sofa, then looked at Zhan Weiyang and asked, “Does it still hurt?”

       When other people asked Zhan Weiyang this question, he said it didn’t hurt, but when he heard Pei Qing ask him, he subconsciously said, “It hurts.”

       He felt that if he said it hurt, Pei Qing might comfort him.

       Sure enough, Pei Qing reached out, touched his head, and said to him, “Go sit down, and I’ll spray you with some medicine.”

       Zhan Weiyang walked to the sofa and sat down. Just as they lost this round, Chen Youyou raised his head in anger and shouted, “Zhan Weiyang!”

       With a smile on his face, Zhan Weiyang said to Chen Youyou, “This is my older cousin—Pei Qing.”

       Chen Youyou looked at Pei Qing, stood up for a moment, and said, “Hello, older brother cousin.”

       Pei Qing smiled at him and said, “Hello.”

       Zhan Weiyang stretched out his right leg and rolled up his trouser leg, his eyes filled with anticipation as he waited for Pei Qing.

       Pei Qing put the plastic bag on the coffee table in the living room, squatted down, took out the bruise spray inside, lowered his head and read the instructions carefully. After a while, he unpacked the package, holding Zhan Weiyang’s calf and the other holding the spray bottle aimed at his knee; he sprayed a bit and then looked up, asking him, “Does it hurt?”

       Zhan Weiyang felt that the calf he was holding was itchy, and he couldn’t help but want to move it. However, he felt nothing from the wound, so he shook his head.

       Pei Qing continued to spray medicine on his knees and, at the same time, said, “Don’t keep moving; don’t go up and down the stairs.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Oh.”

       After spraying medicine on his right leg, Pei Qing asked him to roll up his left trouser leg as well and also sprayed some medicine on the minor scratch on the left side.

       During this process, Chen Youyou kept looking at them with a somewhat dumbfounded expression.

       Pei Qing sprayed Zhan Weiyang, put the spray cap on the coffee table in the living room, and then said, “You guys take your time and play.” After that, he walked towards the stairs.

       Zhan Weiyang and Chen Youyou watched him go upstairs together.

       Chen Youyou turned around and said to Zhan Weiyang, “Your older cousin is, very handsome.”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded in agreement.

       Chen Youyou added, “Do you think he, or Xie Ling is handsome?”

       Zhan Weiyang opened his mouth and suddenly realised that there were some things he couldn’t say, and if he did, he might get points deducted. He held it in until his face turned a little red, and he closed his mouth with difficulty.

       Chen Youyou said to himself, “It’s better, be the older cousin.”

       Zhan Weiyang asked him, “Why?”

       Chen Youyou said, “He seems, nice.”

       The two played games all afternoon. Chen Youyou got up to leave when Grandma and Auntie Luo came back.

       Grandma asked him to stay for dinner, but he refused to agree no matter what and said he wanted to go back, so Zhan Weiyang sent him out. He originally wanted to escort him to the gate of the neighbourhood, but Chen Youyou stopped him, saying that he was limping when he walked, so he’d better be good and stay at home.

       When Zhan Weiyang came back, Auntie Luo had just entered the kitchen to prepare dinner. Grandma turned on the TV to watch TV series.

       It was still a little early, so Zhan Weiyang thought of going upstairs. As he took a step onto the staircase, he suddenly remembered that Pei Qing had just told him to stop moving and not to go up and down the stairs. So he silently took his feet back and walked over to sit beside Grandma on the sofa and watched TV with her instead.

Chapter 12

       The moment he jumped off the bus, Zhan Weiyang found that his right knee was clearly hurting more than his left, so he couldn’t help but limp while walking and walked towards the neighbourhood’s gate with his school bag on his back.

       The sun was shining down from above his head, and Zhan Weiyang started to sweat again after walking a short distance. A drop of sweat slid down his cheek, flowing through the white and reddish skin, leaving a trace.

       When he got home, no one was on the first floor, and even the TV was turned off. This means that neither Grandma nor Auntie Luo were at home, and Auntie Luo should be pushing Grandma’s wheelchair to accompany her for a walk. Grandma would go for a walk in a nearby park when the weather was nice. She couldn’t walk far, so Auntie Luo would push the wheelchair, and when she got tired from walking, she would let her sit down and watch the children running and playing in the park.

       Zhan Weiyang threw his school bag on the sofa, walked to the kitchen with one leg, took a glass cup, and put a glass of cold purified water under the water purifier. He raised his head and drank the whole glass of water.

       He took a deep breath, raised his hand to wipe the sweat from his face, rinsed the inside under the sink, and put it back in the cupboard.

       When he turned around, he suddenly found Pei Qing standing at the door of the kitchen, with his hands in his trouser pockets, leaning against the door frame and looking at him.

       Zhan Weiyang was actually startled. He didn’t hear Pei Qing’s footsteps and didn’t know when Pei Qing appeared. However, he opened his mouth without screaming and tried his best to swallow his surprise, then called out, “Qing ge?”

       Pei Qing’s eyes dropped from his red cheeks to his knees and asked, “Did you fall?”

       Zhan Weiyang looked down and found two clear marks on his school uniform trousers, the very same dust that had stained his knees when he knelt on the ground. He raised his head, suddenly ashamed, and said, “I accidentally fell while riding my bicycle.”

       Pei Qing asked him, “Are you hurt?”

       Zhan Weiyang bent down. His body was flexible enough that he could almost fold himself in half and embrace his own legs. He pulled his trouser legs up with both hands until they reached past his knees. Only then did he say, “Oh, there’s some blood.”

       Pei Qing came over, squatted in front of Zhan Weiyang, pulled up his other trouser leg, looked up at him, and asked, “Is there a medical kit?”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded.

       The sunlight in the living room on the first floor was never quite sufficient. There was a big tree next to the window, with thick branches and leaves that covered the sunlight. Therefore, even in the summer, the first floor always remained pleasantly cool, and Grandma never needed to turn on the air conditioning.”

       Zhan Weiyang’s sweat had already dried up, sticking to his skin, as if blocking his pores and making it difficult for his skin to breathe. He looked down at Pei Qing’s head and thought to himself that he should have taken a shower first. Otherwise, if Pei Qing helped him apply medicine and then he went to take a shower, he would wash off all the medicine. However, if he didn’t take a shower, he would feel very uncomfortable.

       Pei Qing lowered his head and wiped his wound with a cotton swab dipped in iodine. He moved very gently.

       From Zhan Weiyang’s perspective, he could see Pei Qing’s sharp profile, the straight bridge of his nose, and the extraordinarily long eyelashes at the corners of his eyes.

       The injury on his knee was more serious than the injury on his palm. Pei Qing helped him disinfect it and found a medical dressing from the medicine box to apply it.

       Then Zhan Weiyang took the initiative to stretch his hand to him.

       Pei Qing took a look at his hand and said, “It’s just a little scratch; there’s no need to patch it up.”

       Zhan Weiyang took back his hand and said with some disappointment, “Oh.”

       Pei Qing put back everything he had just rummaged through the medicine box.

       When Zhan Weiyang got off the sofa, his stomach growled without warning, and he felt that he was hungry. He secretly glanced at Pei Qing and saw that there was no change in Pei Qing’s expression. He thought Pei Qing didn’t hear him, so he stood up, limped into the dining room, opened the refrigerator and wanted to find something to eat.

       There weren’t many snacks at home, and the fridge only had a bowl of leftover stir-fried pork with green peppers from lunch, along with a bowl of white rice. There weren’t any other cooked dishes available.

       Zhan Weiyang closed the upper door, bent down to pull the freezer drawer below, and wanted to eat an ice cream. Before he could get it, he heard Pei Qing ask him from behind, “Didn’t have lunch?”

       He turned back and nodded.

       Pei Qing came over, reached out and closed the freezer drawer first, and then said, “Would you like egg fried rice?”

       Zhan Weiyang looked at him blankly and said, “Yeah.”

       Pei Qing opened the door of the refrigerator again, took out the bowl of leftover rice, and then took two eggs and a green onion. When closing the door, he hesitated and took another ham.

       He said to Zhan Weiyang, “I haven’t done it in a long time, let me try.”

       Zhan Weiyang followed Pei Qing into the kitchen and watched him beat the eggs and then cut the ham into small pieces.

       Pei Qing’s movements were not very skilful. It seemed that he had cooked before, but he didn’t do it often.

       Zhan Weiyang was close to Pei Qing, and Pei Qing’s elbow would touch him occasionally if he moved too much.

       “Do you want to wait outside?” Pei Qing asked Zhan Weiyang.

       Zhan Weiyang said, “But I want to watch you do it.”

       Pei Qing didn’t say anything else. He poured the beaten egg liquid into the pot and stir-fried it until it was cooked, then poured in the ham sausage and rice. When it was almost done, he sprinkled in a handful of chopped green onion and stir-fried evenly.

       Zhan Weiyang said, “It looks delicious.”

       Pei Qing took the rice out of the pot, then took out the fried pork with peppers from the refrigerator, poured it into the pot to heat, and finally brought it to the dining table for Zhan Weiyang to sit down and eat.

       Zhan Weiyang followed Pei Qing from the kitchen into the dining room. He sat down at the dining table, reached out and took the chopsticks Pei Qing handed him, and lowered his head to take a big bite of the rice.

       He was really hungry, and he felt that Pei Qing’s bowl of egg-fried rice was the best egg-fried rice he had ever tasted. It was much more delicious than Auntie Luo’s. Of course, he would never tell Auntie Luo these things.

       Zhan Weiyang ate quickly and hurriedly. After finishing the meal, he ran into the kitchen with an empty bowl and saw that Pei Qing had cleared the chopping board and washed the pot.

       When Pei Qing was about to reach out to take the bowl and wash it, Zhan Weiyang leaned aside and said hurriedly, “I’ll wash it.”

       He was very insistent. After Pei Qing got out of the way, he walked to the sink, washed the dishes and chopsticks, shaking off the water and putting them in the draining tray to dry.

       Zhan Weiyang came out of the kitchen and saw Pei Qing walking towards the stairs. He hurried to the sofa, grabbed one of his school bag straps, and chased Pei Qing towards the stairs.

       His school bag dragged on the floor, bumping against the stairs one by one as his feet hit the stairs, he ran up and grabbed the hem of Pei Qing’s clothes. When Pei Qing turned around, he leaned close to Pei Qing and whispered in his ear, “Your egg fried rice is the best I have ever tasted.” He was thinking just now while he was eating, although he couldn’t tell Auntie Luo, he could tell Pei Qing, and he must tell Pei Qing.

       Pei Qing smiled, bent down close to his ear, and asked in a low voice, “Why whisper it?”

       Zhan Weiyang’s ears were itchy. He raised his hand and scratched it, and it soon turned red. He said, “Can’t let Auntie Luo hear it.”

       Pei Qing nodded and said softly, “I understand.”

       Zhan Weiyang still held him tightly, “Don’t tell Auntie Luo.”

       Pei Qing smiled and looked at Zhan Weiyang without saying anything.

       Zhan Weiyang suddenly became anxious, and he said in a sincere tone, “Auntie Luo will be sad.”

       Pei Qing said: “If you call me gege, I won’t tell Auntie Luo.”

       Zhan Weiyang said without thinking, “Gege!” He felt that it was not sincere enough, so he added, “Please.”

       Pei Qing said, “Well—okay.”


The author has something to say:
This article is basically about sweet and warm daily life, with no dramatic plot twists or reversals. Even the setbacks are minor, and the overall tone is relatively flat. There might be some issues, but they won’t affect daily life. Growth will occur, but suddenly becoming smarter would be unlikely. Whether there is a secondary couple or not, I will not write in detail.

Chapter 11

       During class, Zhan Weiyang buried his head and took a pen to write in a notebook.

       As soon as class was over, Chen Youyou turned around, picked up his notebook and looked at it. He saw the word “plan” written in large letters at the top, followed by a list of several bullet points. Only the first point had some writing next to it, and it said: “Follow Xie Ling.”

       “You want to, follow Xie Ling?” Chen Youyou found it unbelievable.

       Zhan Weiyang raised his hand and put his index finger to his lips, “Shh— Keep your voice down.”

       Chen Youyou said, “When?”

       Zhan Weiyang lowered his voice and said to him, “After school at noon on Saturday.”

       The entire high school section of their school had to make up classes on Saturdays. The first and second year students only had half-day classes in the morning, while the third year senior students had to attend the whole day.

       Zhan Weiyang planned to follow Xie Ling after school at noon on Saturday to see where he lives.

       “So what, if you know?” Chen Youyou asked him, squatting in the corner of the field.

       This period was a physical education class. After warm-up exercises and running two laps on the field, the teacher dismissed the groups and told everyone to move freely.

       Many boys in the class were invited to play basketball together, but neither Chen Youyou nor Zhan Weiyang went.

       Zhan Weiyang didn’t have many friends. In fact, he was a clean and handsome young man, easily giving people a good first impression. Many people initially approach him voluntarily, especially girls. However, once they got closer to him, those people started to feel that he was somewhat different from ordinary people and gradually distanced themselves from him.

       Similarly, Chen Youyou didn’t have many friends. It was not that he didn’t like playing with boys of the same age, but he didn’t like others to imitate him in speaking, and he couldn’t stand others calling him a stutterer. When he first entered the school as a freshman in high school, Chen Youyou happened to be a deskmate with Zhan Weiyang. He didn’t pay much attention to Zhan Weiyang at first. Later, as time passed, he found that Zhan Weiyang was the only one who didn’t care about his lisping. Treating him as an ordinary friend, the two gradually became close to each other.

       Zhan Weiyang could play basketball. He learned it from Zhan Weiguang when he was a child, and his skills were quite good. However, Chen Youyou had never been willing to participate in such group activities for boys in the class, so Zhan Weiyang stopped going in order to accompany him.

       At this time, Zhan Weiyang squatted under the shade of a big tree, straightened his neck and looked at the basketball court. He answered Chen Youyou casually, “I don’t know. I just searched on the internet for ways to pursue someone, thinking maybe I can escort him home in the future.”

       Chen Youyou rolled his eyes unobtrusively.

       Zhan Weiyang naturally didn’t see it and continued, “If he gets sick, I can go visit him and bring some gifts to his parents. Maybe they will like me.”

       Chen Youyou said, “You, are like a stalker.”

       Zhan Weiyang sat cross-legged on the root of the big tree, with his back against the trunk, and said, “I won’t let him see me.”

       After class at noon on Saturday, Zhan Weiyang dragged Chen Youyou to follow Xie Ling.

       Chen Youyou didn’t want to go, “I want to go home to e-eat!”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “I’ll treat you to food.”

       Chen Youyou still shook his head.

       Zhan Weiyang said anxiously, “Please.”

       Chen Youyou couldn’t bear to refuse anymore.

       Fortunately, the teacher in the last class didn’t drag on the lesson, so as soon as the class ended, they grabbed their backpacks and rushed out of the classroom. They headed towards the direction of the first-year classrooms. In the hallway, they saw Xie Ling coming out of the classroom with a backpack on his back.

       It was time for school to end, and they were surrounded by students in school uniforms. Zhan Weiyang and Chen Youyou were inconspicuous among them, and Xie Ling didn’t notice them either and walked straight towards the school’s bicycle shed.

       Chen Youyou said, “He had a bike.”

       Zhan Weiyang wanted to follow Xie Ling to the bike shed.

       Chen Youyou pulled him and said, “Let’s g-go to the school gate first, and l-look for the shared bicycles.” The more anxious he became, the more he stuttered.

       Zhan Weiyang looked at him and said, “You are so smart.”

       The two of them squeezed in among the students after school and ran towards the school gate. They found two shared bicycles on the roadside. They scanned the QR code, and each occupied one. Then, they returned to the school gate and waited for Xie Ling to ride out of the school.

       The sky was sunny and cloudless, a refreshing azure blue.

       Zhan Weiyang and Chen Youyou were riding bicycles, one behind the other, following Xie Ling from a distance. After riding for a while, Zhan Weiyang’s back was sweating from carrying his schoolbag. He heard Chen Youyou ringing the bell from behind and moved slightly to the side. In the end, Chen Youyou passed him with a smile. He quickly rode his bike to chase her, and the two teenagers chased her back and forth, following Xie Ling as they rode toward the outskirts of the city.

       They rode for almost half an hour. The tall buildings around them gradually decreased, and the streets became narrower. This was originally a factory on the outskirts of the city. Later, the city expanded, and the factories were relocated, leaving many old houses built with the factories in the past, which had not yet had the time to be renovated.

       There was an intersection ahead. After Xie Ling rode through the intersection first, the traffic lights started flashing.

       Chen Youyou wanted to rush over at once, but Zhan Weiyang stopped first and grabbed Chen Youyou. The traffic light on the opposite side turned red.

       The two of them watched Xie Ling’s back from across the street, saw him ride his bike into an alley, and then disappeared.

       Chen Youyou seemed even more restless than Zhan Weiyang. They waited until the light turned green and immediately chased him on their bikes. When they turned into the same alley, they could see the end at a glance, but there was no trace of Xie Ling at all.

       Zhan Weiyang rode slowly along the alley, and at the end of the alley, he saw a gate without any signage. Inside the gate, it looked like a very old neighbourhood, and the houses in the neighbourhood were still the same kind of four-storey buildings with many families in a long corridor. Long bamboo poles protruded from the side of the corridor guardrail, covered with clothes.

       They rode to the gate. Zhan Weiyang poked his head in and took a look. He saw a guard room next to the gate, and an old man was sitting at the gate watching TV.

       Zhan Weiyang looked around and saw the old man suddenly turning his head to look at him and quickly retracted his head.

       Chen Youyou asked him, “How is it?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Forget it, let’s go back.”

       Chen Youyou looked up at the building, stretched out his hand to push Zhan Weiyang, and pointed him upstairs.

       Zhan Weiyang saw their school uniforms hanging on a bamboo pole on the third floor.

       Chen Youyou said, “It’s, right here, g-go and have a look.”

       Zhan Weiyang put his head through the door again and saw the old man still staring in the direction of the door. He quickly exited and said, “I’m not gonna look. Let’s go.”

       Chen Youyou said, “Then, let’s go eat.”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded, “Okay.”

       They rode back through the alley, which was too narrow. Zhan Weiyang rode in front, and Chen Youyou followed him.

       Zhan Weiyang’s bike swayed from side to side, a little distracted. He didn’t know what to do. Even if he knew where Xie Ling lived, he still didn’t have the courage to catch up and talk to Xie Ling.

       The road ahead was uneven, with a slanted small step. Previously, they had ridden down directly, and Zhan Weiyang’s buttocks were jolted heavily on the cushion. Now, with his mind blank, Zhan Weiyang attempted to ride up directly. However, the step was higher than he had imagined. The wheels slipped at the edge of the step, causing Zhan Weiyang to fall off the bike.

       “Zhan Weiyang!” Chen Youyou called him in surprise, stopped his bike and jumped out.

       Zhan Weiyang fell to the ground with his knees on the ground. The palms of his hands rubbed against the concrete floor, and he felt a burning sensation.

       Chen Youyou walked up to him, bent down, put his hands on his knees and looked at him, “Are you okay?”

       Zhan Weiyang climbed up slowly while holding on to the ground, subconsciously patting the dust on his palms and shaking his head.

       At this time, a middle-aged man rode a bicycle toward the alley. When he passed by them, he rang the bell vigorously. The two people quickly backed away and watched him pass before returning to pick up the bicycle that had fallen to the ground.

       Chen Youyou said, “Don’t ride anymore. Let’s go, back by my bike.”

       Zhan Weiyang felt pain in his palms and knees. He looked down at his hands and found that the skin on his palms was broken, and he could even see the bright red tender flesh underneath. So he unconsciously used his fingers to rub the dust stains next to the wounds and said at the same time, “Still have to go to eat.”

       Chen Youyou saw that he was lowering his head when he spoke and couldn’t help but bend down to see if Zhan Weiyang was crying. He found that Zhan Weiyang just looked a little blank and did not shed tears. He breathed a little relieved and said, “Forget it. I will, eat at home.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “But I agreed that I would treat you to dinner.”

       Chen Youyou said, “I’m not hungry, you go back.”

       They pushed the car out of the alley, locked it on the side of the road, and walked to the bus stop to catch the bus. It was almost one o’clock at this time, and there were not many people on the bus, but when they got on, there was not a single seat left.

       Two men stood by the back door.

       When he arrived at the next stop, Chen Youyou saw a person in the priority in front of him getting up and getting off. He poked Zhan Weiyang with his finger to ask him to sit down, but a tall young man standing next to them walked quickly towards the seat.

       The two people followed him with their eyes until he sat down, and then they looked away and looked at each other in silence.

       After a while, Chen Youyou got off the bus and went to transfer. He told Zhan Weiyang to be careful, jumped out of the bus from the back door, and waved to Zhan Weiyang from the platform, so Zhan Weiyang was left alone, staggering along with the bus as it continued on its way.

Chapter 10

       “I don’t take baths,” Pei Qing said.

       Zhan Weiyang looked like he was breathing a sigh of relief, and he immediately then explained, “Mainly because the bathtub isn’t big enough either.”

       Pei Qing suddenly felt a little amused, but he didn’t laugh. He just asked, “Do you really like taking a bath?”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded, “My brother doesn’t like me using his bathtub though.”

       This was a rare opportunity. Zhan Weiguang and Zhan Pengcheng were not at home, and Pei Qing had no objection to him.

       Zhan Weiyang turned back and saw that the water in the bathtub was almost full. He stood up and reached out to take off his shirt. Before taking off his pyjamas, he turned to look at Pei Qing and saw that Pei Qing had no intention of going out. So he hesitated and took off only the outer pair of shorts, leaving his underwear on.

       Pei Qing still hesitated a little and said, “Weiguang sent me a WeChat message just now.”

       Zhan Weiyang became nervous instantly. While looking at Pei Qing, he hesitantly raised one leg and stepped sideways towards the water.

       Pei Qing said, “He said you will fall asleep if you take a bath.”

       Zhan Weiyang still looked at Pei Qing. He scratched the surface of the water with the soles of his feet and finally stepped on it. He slowly stepped in with the other foot, squatted down and let the water cover his chest. He said to Pei Qing, “I won’t.”

       Pei Qing was not Zhan Weiguang. He was not close enough to Zhan Weiyang to pull him up from the water directly. At the same time, he couldn’t stop him, so he said, “You go soak, I’ll watch you here.”

       Zhan Weiyang suddenly smiled and said, “Thank you.” He carefully changed directions in the water, stretched out his arms and legs, lay down, rested his head on the shallow groove on the edge of the bathtub, and then exhaled a long breath.

       Pei Qing walked to the bathtub and looked at him, then sat on the edge of the bathtub near his feet, a small triangular platform.

       Zhan Weiyang relaxed his body and felt as if he was floating in the water, and his whole body felt relaxed. After his body relaxed, his chaotic thinking became slightly clearer.

       Pei Qing didn’t talk to him but was playing with his mobile phone. He raised one leg, put the sole of his foot on the edge of the bathtub, lowered his head and sent two messages to his classmates.

       Zhan Weiyang watched Pei Qing without blinking, but his mind was elsewhere. He wondered why he hadn’t done anything today and if Xie Ling still didn’t dislike him or if he would still lose points.

       The hot water slowly steamed, creating a mist. Despite being very close to each other, the gazes of the two individuals became blurry.

       After a while, Pei Qing noticed that the screen of his mobile phone was also covered with water mist. He gently wiped the screen with his finger, raised his head to look at Zhan Weiyang, and found that Zhan Weiyang had been looking at him.

       Zhan Weiyang thought to himself that the points were deducted on the first day because he said he did not like Xie Ling and the points were deducted on the second day because Xie Ling did not accept his love letter. Maybe this deduction was not always related to Xie Ling but also had something to do with himself.

       His eyes were dark and shiny and stained with water vapour.

       Pei Qing felt that Zhan Weiyang looked like he was in a daze.

       Zhan Weiyang thought that just now, it was deducting his points when he wanted to do nothing in the future so that he wouldn’t be deducted points; maybe it meant that he couldn’t do nothing?

       Like a sudden flash of inspiration, Zhan Weiyang’s eyes shone with light. He opened his mouth slightly and whispered, “Ah!”

       Then he became excited, and his heart skipped a beat. He felt that he had found the key to the problem: today’s relationship negative status enhancement was not because of Xie Ling, but because of himself. His negative thoughts led to an increased negative state.

       He clasped his hands in front of his chest, so that was it!

       Pei Qing looked at him expressionlessly.

       After that, Zhan Weiyang closed his eyes with a contented expression.

       Pei Qing’s phone vibrated. He glanced down, then turned off the screen, and continued to look up at Zhan Weiyang.

       Zhan Weiyang had closed his eyes and was motionless. His body was already red from being soaked in the hot water, and his forehead and cheeks were also moist and red. He didn’t know if it was the moisture that filled the air or the sweat.

       Pei Qing thought of Zhan Weiguang’s words and couldn’t help but put his feet into the water and gently touched Zhan Weiyang’s calf.

       Zhan Weiyang’s legs swayed, but there was no reaction.

       Pei Qing stood up, approached Zhan Weiyang’s face, squatted down outside the bathtub, reached out and patted Zhan Weiyang’s face.

       Zhan Weiyang’s eyes were still closed, and his breathing was very light. Only by looking at his chest could he see the not-so-subtle rise and fall.

       Pei Qing subconsciously put his hand on Zhan Weiyang’s chest as if to identify his heartbeat.

       At this moment, Zhan Weiyang suddenly reached out, grabbed Pei Qing’s hand, and laughed out loud. He said, “Do I look like I’m dead?”

       Pei Qing saw that his eyes were open and dark and shiny, so he said to him, “Don’t talk nonsense.”

       Zhan Weiyang said with a smile, “I’ll soak in it for a while.”

       Pei Qing took her hand back and said, “Don’t soak in the water until it gets cold.”

       Zhan Weiyang closed his eyes and said, “I won’t.”

       Pei Qing stood up slowly, took two steps back and sat back where he was. This time, he didn’t play with his phone but just looked at Zhan Weiyang.

       There was a smile on Zhan Weiyang’s face at first, but then it gradually faded. His body became more relaxed in the water, and his breathing gradually became slower. After a few minutes, Pei Qing saw his body slowly sliding down.

       Pei Qing walked over and patted him on the face, calling him, “Yangyang?”

       Zhan Weiyang did not respond.

       Pei Qing knew that Zhan Weiyang was really asleep this time. He reached out to drain the water in the bathtub. When he saw the water surface swirling and becoming shallower, he picked up Zhan Weiyang’s bath towel hanging on the wall and covered him, then wrapped him as he lifted him out of the water.

       When he exerted force on his hands, Zhan Weiyang woke up. He put his feet on the bathtub and tried to stand firm. His arms were still on Pei Qing’s shoulders. He looked at Pei Qing in confusion and said, “I slept too late yesterday.”

       Pei Qing said to him, “Go back to sleep.”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded, and when he was holding Pei Qing’s arm and stretching one foot out, the other foot slipped into the bathtub, and he almost fell down.

       Seeing that he was still completely unconscious, Pei Qing simply wrapped him in a bath towel and carried him.

       Zhan Weiyang was very thin, but after all, he was a boy of 1.74 meters tall, so he was really not light.

       Pei Qing took him out of the bathtub and put him on the floor to put on his slippers.

       Zhan Weiyang was a little excited and said, “Qing ge, you are so strong. You are stronger than my dad.”

       In Zhan Weiyang’s memory, Zhan Pengcheng always liked to hold him no matter where he went when he was a child. Later, he switched to carrying him on his back. When Zhan Weiyang got taller and taller, Zhan Pengcheng couldn’t even carry him on his back.

       Pei Qing did not respond to his words and only said, “Go back to the room and go to sleep.”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded and said, “Thank you, Qing ge.”

       Pei Qing felt that Zhan Weiyang was like a child. If he hadn’t felt his weight when he carried him just now, Pei Qing would have felt like he was talking to a child. Pei Qing shook his head and said, “You’re welcome.”

       Zhan Weiyang walked outside, turned around when he reached the door and said happily to Pei Qing, “You are the best person I have ever met.”

       Pei Qing looked at him without speaking.

       Zhan Weiyang came out of the bathroom and walked briskly downstairs. He returned to his room, dried his body with a bath towel, then changed into a pair of clean underwear, and then got directly under the quilt.

       He covered himself from head to toe with the quilt and couldn’t help but feel happy when he thought of Pei Qing. He didn’t even hear the voice announcing his score today, and he was already looking forward to studying with Pei Qing tomorrow night.

Chapter 9

       Zhan Weiyang was woken up by Pei Qing the next morning.

       Pei Qing called him several times, but he didn’t wake up. Later, Pei Qing reached out and patted his face five or six times before Zhan Weiyang slowly opened his eyes.

       Zhan Weiyang’s gaze was disoriented, and he couldn’t focus when he looked at Pei Qing.

       Pei Qing said, “Yangyang, get up and go to school.”

       Zhan Weiyang blinked his eyes and almost closed them again.

       Pei Qing held his eyelids with his fingers and said to him, “Auntie Luo knocked on the door just now. If you don’t get down quickly, she will knock on the door again later.”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded uncomfortably, said ‘En’ softly, and sat up with his hands. He was in a daze for another minute before climbing out of bed, wearing slippers and heading outside.

       After taking two steps, Zhan Weiyang suddenly remembered that this was Pei Qing’s room. He turned around, picked up his pillow and quilt, and said to Pei Qing, who was lying on the bed, “Qing ge, I’m leaving.”

       Pei Qing said, “Go ahead, don’t be late.”

       During self-study that morning, Zhan Weiyang opened the book and put it on the table, hiding his head behind the book and dozing off. After class ended, he lay down on the table and fell asleep.

       Zhan Weiyang’s mental state was very bad all morning. It was not until the bell rang for the last class in the morning that he suddenly felt that he had regained some energy.

       During lunch, Chen Youyou asked him, “What did you do, last night?”

       Zhan Weiyang’s favourite yuxiang eggplant was served for lunch today. He ate it with gusto. When he heard Chen Youyou’s question, he lifted his head and answered him, “Chatting with my older cousin.”

       Chen Youyou only knew that Zhan Weiyang had a biological brother but had never heard him talk about his older cousin. He asked strangely, “Your older cousin? Stayed, at your house?”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded and said, “He is an intern at a nearby company in his senior year and stayed in my house starting from this semester onwards.”

       “Your older, cousin talk to you, until late at night?” Chen Youyou felt unbelievable.

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Yes, he is much better than my brother. My brother just ignores me.”

       “Oh,” Chen Youyou said, lowering his head and continuing eating.

       After a while, they saw Xie Ling passing by their table after lunch. Xie Ling was still not alone today. In addition to the two boys and a girl yesterday, there was another girl.

       The two girls followed Xie Ling arm in arm, talking and laughing as they walked.

       When Xie Ling passed by, Zhan Weiyang and Chen Youyou subconsciously looked up at him.

       But Xie Ling didn’t even turn his head and walked straight out of the cafeteria with his eyes straight ahead.

       Chen Youyou lowered his head and snorted in disgust while Zhan Weiyang kept looking at Xie Ling’s leaving figure.

       “W-what’s there to see?” Chen Youyou said, “Are you s-still not giving up?”

       Zhan Weiyang turned around, leaned forward, and whispered, “If I don’t give up, what else can I do?”

       Chen Youyou said, “Just go, and tell him, directly.”

       Zhan Weiyang thought Chen Youyou and Pei Qing had the same suggestion, and he said bitterly, “What if I tell him directly that he rejects me?”

       Chen Youyou said, “It’s not if. It’s definite that, he will, reject you.”

       Zhan Weiyang asked seriously, “What should we do?”

       Chen Youyou said, “What can, be done?” He was a little irritated because he couldn’t speak well and had to talk some nonsense to Zhan Weiyang, “If someone d-doesn’t like you…you can’t keep pestering them. It’s not d-decent and doesn’t seem l-like a manly approach.”

       Zhan Weiyang lowered his head slightly. He was not in the mood to pick up the last piece of yuxiang eggplant. He said, “Oh.”

       Chen Youyou said, “If he doesn’t want it, forget it. Anyway, I won’t help you anymore.”

       “Okay,” Zhan Weiyang said, “I won’t go to him and tell him directly.”

       Chen Youyou didn’t understand his brain circuit and looked at him inexplicably.

       Zhan Weiyang explained, “This way, I can think of other ways to be more decent.”

       Chen Youyou felt that Zhan Weiyang was hopeless.

       They didn’t watch Xie Ling play basketball at noon because Zhan Weiyang had eaten a full meal, and all the blood had been supplied to his stomach for digestion. He was sleepy again, so he went back to the classroom and slept on his stomach all afternoon.

       The consequence of not taking action for a whole day was that Zhan Weiyang actually didn’t get any points deducted that day.

       Zhan Weiyang didn’t notice this at first. He suddenly noticed it when he was doing questions at night.

       One second, he was aimlessly writing formulas on the draft paper, but the next second, he suddenly stopped writing and raised his head to look at the ceiling.

       Pei Qing was sitting next to him, reading a book. He noticed Zhan Weiyang’s abnormal behaviour out of the corner of his eye and turned his head to look at him.

       Zhan Weiyang was still staring at the ceiling, thinking that there really were no points deducted today!

       Pei Qing placed the hand holding the pen against his chin and looked up at the ceiling for a moment but didn’t see anything unusual.

       Zhan Weiyang’s not-so-flexible mind began to make calculations: If no points would be deducted if he didn’t take action, then he shouldn’t take action for the time being. He could maintain the status quo.

       Just as he was thinking this, the voice sounded again, “The relationship status negatively enhanced, 2 points deducted.”

       Zhan Weiyang opened his mouth slightly, slowly lowered his head and looked towards Pei Qing.

       Pei Qing waved the pen in front of his eyes, “What’s wrong?”

       Zhan Weiyang didn’t say anything and just looked at Pei Qing blankly.

       Pei Qing couldn’t help but reach out and touch his forehead. His forehead was slightly cool but not hot.

       Zhan Weiyang raised his hand, put it on the back of Pei Qing’s hand, and called him, “Qing ge.”

       Pei Qing said, “Hmm?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “I want to take a bath.”

       Pei Qing withdrew his hand and tapped on the open page of the book with the tip of his pen, “Do you want to take a bath upstairs?”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded. His head was too messy, and he couldn’t think calmly. He wanted to soak in the water.

       Pei Qing said to him, “But before your brother left, he said he wouldn’t let you sneak into his bathtub.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “We can’t tell him.”

       Pei Qing didn’t agree with some of Zhan Weiguang’s ideas. He didn’t feel that letting his little brother use his bathtub was something unforgivable. Besides, this was Zhan Weiyang’s home. In fact, he had no position to stop Zhan Weiyang, so he nodded, “Go ahead.”

       Zhan Weiyang suddenly said happily, “That’s great.”

       Watching Zhan Weiyang run out to the outside bathroom to pack up his things, Pei Qing got up and was ready to go back to his own room when he hesitated or sent a WeChat message to Zhan Weiguang, asking him, “Why not install a bathtub on the second floor so that Weiyang can take a bath? “The bathroom on the second floor was quite large and could fit a bathtub.

       He also heard the brisk sound of Zhan Weiyang packing his things in the corridor. Then he walked into the room, and when he closed the door, he saw Zhan Weiguang replying to his WeChat message.

       Zhan Weiguang sent a voice message.

       Pei Qing sat down by the bed, opened the voice message, brought it close to his ear, and heard Zhan Weiguang say, “He used to fall asleep in the bathtub more than once when he was taking a bath. Dad was afraid he would drown, so he didn’t allow him to take baths anymore.”

       After listening, Pei Qing took the phone away from his ear, and immediately saw the next voice message from Zhan Weiguang.

       Zhan Weiguang said this time, “Qing ge, please help keep an eye on him and don’t let him secretly use my bathtub. I’m sorry to bother you.”

       Pei Qing replied to him by typing, “I understand.” Then he stood up, held his phone and walked outside.

       Zhan Weiyang was nowhere to be seen on the second floor. There was a crack in the door to his room, and the cool air from the air conditioner poured out from the crack, but Zhan Weiyang was not inside.

       Pei Qing closed the door and walked along the corridor towards the stairs.

       When he was on the stairs, Pei Qing had already heard the sound of water on the third floor. He walked up and saw that the only bathroom door on the third floor was closed. There was light coming from the crack of the door on the ground, accompanied by the sound of rushing water.

       He knocked on the door, but there was no response, so he reached out and opened the door.

       The bathroom door was unlocked, and Zhan Weiyang was still wearing pyjamas. He was squatting on the ground on the edge of the bathtub, staring at the bathtub intently, waiting for the water inside to be filled.

       “Yangyang,” Pei Qing called him from the door.

       Zhan Weiyang turned around suddenly, with a little surprise on his face, “Qing ge?” He seemed to be stunned for a moment before he came to his senses and asked, “You also want to take a bath?”

Chapter 8

       Pei Qing asked Zhan Weiyang who the love letter was for, but Zhan Weiyang refused to tell. Naturally, he would not push it. He just smiled, looked at Zhan Weiyang, and said, “Is this your first time in love?”

       Zhan Weiyang answered him, “I’m not in love.”

       “Huh?” Pei Qing seemed puzzled.

       Zhan Weiyang was very distressed and finally said, “I asked someone to give him the love letter, but he just threw it away.”

       Pei Qing thought of the pink envelope burned by Zhan Weiyang. He reached out to pull down his laptop screen, leaned back on the chair, and asked, “Is it the tall, good-looking girl with good grades?”

       Zhan Weiyang hesitated for a moment but nodded without denying.

       Pei Qing asked, “She threw it in front of you? That impolite?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “No, I asked someone to give it to him for me, but he didn’t know it was written by me.”

       Pei Qing nodded and said, “Is that so?”

       Zhan Weiyang turned around to face Pei Qing and asked him, “Qing ge, what do you think I should do?”

       Pei Qing crossed his arms in front of his chest, “If she doesn’t accept love letters, so just tell her in person.”

       Zhan Weiyang frowned, “What if he doesn’t want it?”

       Pei Qing asked curiously, “Could it be that you are still unwilling to give up even if she rejects you in person?”

       Zhan Weiyang fell into deep thought.

       The voice in his head suddenly sounded at this moment, “Relationship status negatively enhanced, 2 points deducted.”

       Zhan Weiyang was shocked, grabbed Pei Qing’s arm, and said, “I won’t give up!”

       Pei Qing looked down at the hand he held tightly to him.

       Zhan Weiyang was like grabbing a life-saving straw. He felt that Pei Qing was smart and good at getting along with others. He believed that Pei Qing could give him good advice, so he asked, “Can you teach me what to do?”

       Pei Qing patted the back of his hand and said calmly, “Don’t worry.”

       He actually wanted to signal Zhan Weiyang to let go, but Zhan Weiyang held on to him and refused to let go. He could only continue, “Yangyang, do you know that you are now in your second year of high school, which is a critical time for your studies?”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded.

       Pei Qing added, “So, I strongly disagree with you dating right now.”

       Zhan Weiyang understood what Pei Qing meant. He felt that he couldn’t express his pain, and it was not him who wanted to date. He thought in a daze, “Then what should I do?”

       “Don’t think about her. Maybe it will be fine in a week or two.”

       After a week or two, Zhan Weiyang began to mentally calculate two points a day and how many points would be deducted in two weeks.

       Then he said, “No.”

       Pei Qing looked at him in silence. After a while, he stood up and reached for the laptop on the table, “I don’t think you are in a good condition. Take some time to think about whether what you’re doing is right or not.” After that, he pushed the chair away and walked outside.

       Zhan Weiyang looked at his back and called him, “Qing ge.”

       Pei Qing ignored him.

       Zhan Weiyang saw that Pei Qing had left the room. He stood up and chased to the door. He only dared to lean out half of his body to watch Pei Qing return to his room and call out in a low voice, “Qing ge?”

       Pei Qing still didn’t answer, so he opened his door and went in, closing the door gently.

       Until he was lying on the bed, Zhan Weiyang was still in a mess. He heard the female voice reporting daily scores: “User’s score today: 46 points.”

       He suddenly became even more depressed.

       As a result, Zhan Weiyang couldn’t sleep. Losing points was secondary; the main issue was that Pei Qing was not happy. He felt that he should apologize to Pei Qing.

       He thought about it until late at night, Zhan Weiyang finally made up his mind. He got up from the bed, put on his pyjamas and slippers, opened the door gently and walked towards Pei Qing’s room.

       Pei Qing’s door was closed but not locked from the inside.

       Zhan Weiyang turned the door handle very gently and took a look first.

       There was no light in the room; Pei Qing was already asleep, and he could hear slight breathing. The light from the street lamp shone in from the window through the curtains, illuminating the outline of the entire room, including the person lying on the bed.

       Zhan Weiyang quietly walked to the bed and bent down, trying hard to see Pei Qing’s face clearly in the dim light, but he could only see a vague outline and couldn’t tell whether he had his eyes closed.

       He thought that he shouldn’t disturb Pei Qing’s sleep and that it was better to leave.

       Zhan Weiyang, who was about to stand up straight, suddenly lost his balance and fell forward. He quickly reached out to support himself, and his hand happened to be pressed on Pei Qing’s chest.

       Pei Qing opened his eyes all of a sudden, shining brightly in the darkness, and then grabbed Zhan Weiyang’s wrist.

       He grabbed it too hard, and Zhan Weiyang let out a cry of pain.

       Only then did Pei Qing realize that the person in front of him was Zhan Weiyang. He let go of his hand and called, “Yangyang?”

       Zhan Weiyang quickly retracted his hand and rubbed his right wrist with his left hand.

       Pei Qing sat up, raised her hand to turn on the desk lamp, frowned, and asked, “What are you doing so late?”

       Zhan Weiyang rubbed his wrist while looking at Pei Qing.

       Pei Qing had never experienced being slapped awake in the middle of the night. He sat at the head of the bed, trying to make his tone sound a bit gentler, and asked, “What’s wrong, Yangyang?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “I’m sorry.”

       Pei Qing closed his eyes and raised his head as if thinking for a while before he said, “You didn’t do anything to apologise for.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “But you are upset.”

       Pei Qing looked at him, “Don’t you often make Zhan Weiguang upset?” He didn’t see Zhan Weiyang nervously apologize to Zhan Weiguang.

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Zhan Weiguang is upset every day. This is the first time I’ve seen you upset.”

       Pei Qing was silent for a moment before saying, “I’m not upset.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “You did; you ignored me when I called you just now.”

       Pei Qing was so sleepy that he resisted yawning and said to Zhan Weiyang, “I’m not unhappy. I just care about you, and I am afraid that you will obsessed with trivial matters.”

       Zhan Weiyang listened and asked after a while, “What trivial matters?”

       Pei Qing’s tone was a little helpless, “I’m afraid that if that girl doesn’t accept you, you have to force yourself.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “But I have no choice.”

       Pei Qing didn’t know what to say. He wanted to persuade Zhan Weiyang to go back to sleep. It was really too late, and he couldn’t help but want to close his eyes.

       But Zhan Weiyang squatted down directly next to his bed at this time, holding the bed with his hands like a little hamster, looking up at him as if he wanted to have a long conversation, “Qing ge, there is something I want to talk to you about.”

       Pei Qing closed his eyes. He wanted to lie down but couldn’t keep Zhan Weiyang squatting beside his bed. He could only say, “Do you want to talk to me?”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded.

       Pei Qing asked, “How about you go and get the pillows and quilts, and we can lie down and talk?”

       Zhan Weiyang said softly, “Ah”, and thought Pei Qing’s suggestion was very good. He quickly said, “Okay.” He immediately got up and ran outside.

       Pei Qing fell down and covered his eyes with his arms. After a while, Zhan Weiyang came in with a quilt and pillow. He stood up and helped him put the pillow away. Then he lay down and reached out to turn off the lamp. He closed his eyes in the darkness and said in a slurred voice, “Go ahead.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “But I can’t tell you.”

       Pei Qing said nothing.

       Zhan Weiyang waited for a while, then stretched out his hand to push Pei Qing gently, “Qing ge, are you asleep?”

       Pei Qing said, “I didn’t.”

       Zhan Weiyang continued, “Don’t be upset, I will study hard.”

       Pei Qing spoke with a strong nasal voice, “Hmm—”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “It will be fine when I catch up with him, and then I will concentrate on studying and preparing for the college entrance examination.”

       Pei Qing said, “Hmm…”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Qing ge, you are really kind.”

       Pei Qing did not respond.

       Zhan Weiyang turned over to face Pei Qing. He felt a lot more relaxed. He closed his eyes and whispered, “Good night.”

Chapter 7

       Zhan Weiyang didn’t look like he had much of an appetite when he ate his dinner, and Grandma, worried about him, asked, “Is Yangyang not feeling well?”

       “No,” Zhan Weiyang shook his head, lowered his head and took two mouthfuls of rice but soon returned to his listless look.

       After dinner, Zhan Weiyang went outside the house, dug a small hole in the flower bed and buried all the ashes of the love letters in it. Then he took a small shovel and went to the sink to rinse it. After washing it, he placed it in a corner next to the sink where it could still get a little sunlight and then turned around and returned to the house.

       Pei Qing was no longer in the living room on the first floor.

       Grandma was sitting on the sofa and watching TV. There was the sound of water running in the kitchen. It was Auntie Luo who was washing the dishes after eating.

       Zhan Weiyang was covered in sweat. He walked to the large refrigerator in the dining room, opened the freezer drawer, and took out an ice cream. When he was about to tear off the wrapping paper, he hesitated and took another one, holding it with his fingers. He took two ice creams and went up to the second floor.

       Pei Qing’s bedroom next door to Zhan Weiyang’s was originally a vacant guest room at home.

       Zhan Weiyang walked to the door of Pei Qing’s room and saw that the door was ajar, leaving a crack. He knocked on the door and heard no sound from inside, so he reached out and pushed the door open a little to look inside.

       The lights and air conditioner were on in the room, but no one was there.

       Zhan Weiyang turned back to look in the direction of the bathroom. He saw that the bathroom door was closed. When he listened carefully, he could hear some noise. He thought that Pei Qing must be taking a shower, so he planned to return to his room first.

       After taking two steps, Zhan Weiyang lifted the ice cream he was holding to take a look, then turned and returned to Pei Qing’s room. He opened the door and walked in, putting the ice cream on the bedside table.

       Because it was originally a guest room, this room did not have a desk or bookcase, only a double bed, two bedside tables and a row of wardrobes attached to the wall.

       However, there was a bay window in the room. There were a few books on the windowsill and a small table that could be placed on the bed with a laptop on it.

       This room had the same orientation as Zhan Weiyang’s room. From the window, he could see the small garden downstairs. It also happened to be facing the west, and the sun was still shining through the window at this time.

       After Zhan Weiyang put the ice cream down, he poked it through the wrapping paper with his fingers and felt that the ice cream was a little soft. He quickly opened his own piece, raised the ice cream up, raised his head and took a deep sip from the lower corner.

       When he lowered his head, he saw Pei Qing standing at the door of the room.

       Zhan Weiyang suddenly felt a little nervous. He pointed to the ice cream on the bedside and said, “Qing ge, have some ice cream.”

       Pei Qing was not particularly surprised to see Zhan Weiyang. He had just taken a shower and was wearing a pair of shorts. Hearing Zhan Weiyang’s words, he smiled and said, “Thank you”, then closed the door and walked in.

       Zhan Weiyang was wondering if he should go out. The ice cream in his hand was about to drip again, so he quickly held it in his mouth.

       But Pei Qing had already opened the wardrobe and started to get dressed with his back to him.

       Zhan Weiyang secretly looked at Pei Qing while sipping ice cream.

       Pei Qing had a good figure, with smooth muscle lines from arms to shoulders, which was the perfect transition from boy to young man. The waist looked narrow, lean and strong, with a concave ridge in the middle and a beautiful arc from waist to hip. He also had a pair of straight and slender legs, and his body shape was just right.

       When Pei Qing was getting dressed, Zhan Weiyang was worried that the ice cream would melt, so he took the initiative to remove the wrapping paper for him and handed it to him when he was finished getting dressed.

       Pei Qing lowered his head, took the ice cream in his mouth first, and then reached out to take it. He sucked in the melted liquid on it and said, “Thank you.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “I’m going back first.”

       Pei Qing said, “Sit a little longer.”

       Zhan Weiyang couldn’t tell that it was Pei Qing being polite casually. He was stunned for a moment and returned to the bay window, sitting down with his legs leaning on the window sill.

       Pei Qing also sat down next to the bed and ate ice cream with Zhan Weiyang facing each other.

       Zhan Weiyang said nothing.

       Pei Qing had to ask, “Do you have a lot of homework today?”

       Zhan Weiyang shook his head. He had already submitted today’s homework in the afternoon. For the evening, the teacher asked them to preview tomorrow’s lesson. He brought back a workbook; it wasn’t for submission, but the teacher would randomly check it every week. Zhan Weiyang planned to find time to finish the week’s exercises.

       Pei Qing said, “Then do you want to take a bath first? After taking a bath, I will go over and study with you.”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded, “Okay.”

       Pei Qing finished the ice cream quickly, but Zhan Weiyang still habitually licked the surface of the ice cream flat.

       When he saw Pei Qing finished eating, he hurried over and stretched out a hand to Pei Qing.

       Pei Qing lowered his eyes and saw that Zhan Weiyang’s palm was white and clean, with delicate skin. In fact, he was not sure what Zhan Weiyang meant, but he subconsciously put the small wood chip in Zhan Weiyang’s hand.

       Zhan Weiyang took it naturally and helped him throw it into the trash can in the corner of the room. Finally, he put the last bit of ice cream on the wood chips into his mouth and said vaguely as he walked outside, “I’m going to take a shower. “

       Pei Qing responded, “Okay, go quickly.”

       Zhan Weiyang’s hands were sticky, so he washed them first, returned to the room, found a change of clothes, and went to the bathroom.

       There was still thick water vapor in the bathroom from Pei Qing’s bath just now.

       The bathroom on the second floor did not have a bathtub but only a shower room. The glass of the shower room was covered with water droplets. Zhan Weiyang took off all his clothes outside before entering the shower room barefoot and closing the glass door. The narrow space was filled with the scent of shower gel, which was exactly the same as the scent on Pei Qing just now.

       He turned on the shower head and leaned against the corner of the shower room. He waited until the water was no longer so cold before standing under the water column. He closed his eyes and took a shower, thinking that although Pei Qing was not his older cousin, he was really kind to him. Yes, even better than Zhan Weiguang.

       No wonder they all liked Pei Qing, and he also liked Pei Qing.

       After he took a shower, Zhan Weiyang, wearing underwear, opened the bathroom door, looked around and saw no one, then ran back to his room to get dressed.

       After getting dressed, he sat down in front of the desk. He turned his head and saw that the chair Pei Qing had pushed last night was still there, but Pei Qing hadn’t come over yet. He took the book out of his schoolbag, placed it on the table, and held the pen in his hand. He still didn’t wait for Pei Qing to come over.

       Zhan Weiyang then got up and went to Pei Qing’s room again. He knocked on the door and shouted, “Qing ge?”

       Pei Qing said, “Please come in.”

       Zhan Weiyang pushed open the door and put his head in. He saw Pei Qing sitting by the bed, setting a small table on the bed and looking at the computer. So he said, “Qing ge, I’ve finished taking a shower.”

       Pei Qing just raised his eyes and looked at him. When he looked back, he asked, “All clean?”

       Zhan Weiyang was stunned for a moment, then whispered, “Washed clean.”

       Pei Qing was reading an English document. When he was concentrating, he said casually, “Really?”

       Zhan Weiyang hesitated for a while, then opened the door and came in, walked to Pei Qing’s bedside and said, “Really.”

       Pei Qing responded casually, “Okay.”

       Zhan Weiyang stood aside, waiting for him.

       It was not until Pei Qing finished reading the entire article and raised his hand to pull down the laptop screen that he raised his head and said to Zhan Weiyang, “Let’s go, I’ll accompany you to study.”

       Tonight, Pei Qing took his laptop directly to Zhan Weiyang’s room, sat side by side with him in front of the desk, and asked Zhan Weiyang to read first. If he didn’t understand anything, he could ask him.

       Zhan Weiyang first read through the content that the teacher will randomly check tomorrow and then took the exercise book to do the questions. Pei Qing, next to him, had never spoken to him. After completing two questions, he began to lose focus and turned his head to secretly look at Pei Qing’s computer screen.

       The article on it was all in English, and the words he recognised were limited.

       Pei Qing finished reading everything he wanted to read tonight, and then he took the time to talk to Zhan Weiyang. He asked, “You haven’t finished writing the love letter assigned by your teacher yet. Let’s continue today.”

       Zhan Weiyang straightened his back suddenly.

       Pei Qing’s tone was serious and calm, “It’s better not to procrastinate on your homework, especially when writing articles. You can’t pause for too long; otherwise, your train of thought will be interrupted. Just continue writing now.”

       Zhan Weiyang tightened his grip on the pen, pursed his lips, and said, “I’ve finished writing.”

       “Really?” Pei Qing said, “Show me.”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “It has been handed over to the teacher.”

       Pei Qing’s tone was still calm, “Okay, after the teacher has corrected it, show it to me. Can I get it tomorrow?”

       Zhan Weiyang looked at him with a somewhat panicked expression.

       Pei Qing leaned back in his chair and put one hand casually on the table. He smiled and asked Zhan Weiyang, “What’s wrong, Yangyang?”

       Zhan Weiyang said nothing.

       Pei Qing said, “Don’t be afraid. I promised Uncle to watch over you during self-study and help you with your studies. I just want to do my best to fulfill Uncle’s request. It doesn’t matter if the essay is well-written or not; the key is to know how to improve. What do you think?”

       Zhan Weiyang was very confused.

       Pei Qing raised his hand, touched Zhan Weiyang’s head very gently, and said, “I won’t blame you if I don’t write well.”

       Zhan Weiyang suddenly felt a strong sense of guilt. He lowered his head and whispered, “That’s not homework.”

       Pei Qing came closer, “What did you say?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “The love letter is not an assignment assigned by the teacher. It is something I want to write to others.”

       Pei Qing looked stunned, “Oh, who is it for?”

       Zhan Weiyang shook his head and stopped talking.

Chapter 6

       Zhan Weiyang sat down and continued to write a love letter to Xie Ling. He was always thinking about the deduction of points in his mind and wrote a little absent-mindedly.

       Pei Qing noticed it and saw that he was stumbling every word as he wrote, so he said, “If you’re not in a hurry, just write it tomorrow.”

       Zhan Weiyang said immediately, “There is no rush.”

       Pei Qing stood up and said to Zhan Weiyang, “Then I’m going back to the room; you go to bed early.”

       Zhan Weiyang also stood up and watched Pei Qing return to the bedside to pick up his book. He waited until he walked to the door and said, “Thank you, Qing ge.”

       Pei Qing smiled and said, “You’re welcome. Good night.” After that, he walked out and closed the door for him.

       Zhan Weiyang immediately sat down and saw that he had almost written more than half of the homework paper. He hesitated for a while and added the words Xie Ling at the beginning, and then added, “I like you. Can you be my boyfriend?” in the last row. My mobile phone number is: 138XXXXXXXX, you can add me on WeChat.” Then, he completed the first love letter in his life with a perfunctory attitude.

       After he took a shower, he lay on the bed, getting ready to go to bed. Zhan Weiyang stared at the ceiling with his eyes open and whispered, “Are you there?”

       No respond.

       He added, “Can you not deduct points from me? I was joking.”

       Still no response.

       Zhan Weiyang turned over and reached out to turn off the lamp on the bedside table. At the same time, he heard the voice telling him, “The user’s score today: 48 points.”

       The light in the room suddenly went out and fell into darkness. Zhan Weiyang simultaneously pulled the quilt over his head, buried his whole body under the quilt, and sighed softly.

       When he went to school the next day, Zhan Weiyang got off the bus and ran to the stationery store opposite the school to buy an envelope.

       He looked at the stationery store for a long time and found that there were so many colourful envelopes with various laces and patterns. Seeing that there were no other students in the store, he secretly chose a pink one with a small heart on it. He went to the boss to check out sheepishly, then stuffed the envelope into his schoolbag and ran towards the school gate.

       While studying in the morning, Zhan Weiyang stuffed the love letter he had written into the envelope. He found that he had no glue, so he borrowed correction tape from the girl at the same table to seal the envelope.

       His deskmate, Zhou Hanyi, usually didn’t talk to him very much, but today, she couldn’t help but come over and ask him what he was doing.

       Zhan Weiyang quickly stuffed the envelope into the desk drawer to prevent Zhou Hanyi from seeing it.

       When the self-study class was over, Zhan Weiyang kicked the chair in front of him, trying to get Chen Youyou’s attention.

       Chen Youyou turned around with an unhappy look on his face and asked him, “What are you doing?”

       Zhan Weiyang lay on the desk, approached Chen Youyou, lowered his voice and said to him, “I have written a love letter to Xie Ling. Will you help me give it to him?”

       Chen Youyou refused without thinking, “I won’t.” After saying that, he turned back and rummaged through the drawer for his new physics question book.

       Zhan Weiyang kicked his chair again.

       Chen Youyou ignored him.

       Zhan Weiyang continued to play.

       Chen Youyou turned around suddenly this time and said in an impatient tone, “What, what are you doing?”

       His voice was a little loud, and many people in the classroom heard it. Immediately, some boys laughed, imitated him, and said, “No, no what not.”

       Chen Youyou’s expression immediately turned a bit unpleasant. He remained silent, burying his head without saying a word. Zhan Weiyang dared not speak either, and the two sat in silence, facing each other for a while.

       The class bell rang at this time, and Chen Youyou stretched out his hand to Zhan Weiyang before the teacher entered the classroom, “Bring it here.”

       Zhan Weiyang immediately handed him the envelope.

       Chen Youyou said, “Go at noon.” After saying that, he turned around, looked down at the pink envelope, and stuffed it into his drawer.

       At noon, most students had lunch in the school cafeteria. After eating, students who lived in the school could return to the dormitory to nap. Day students go back to the classroom to rest on their desks. Some very energetic students would go to the playground to play ball at noon.

       During lunch, Chen Youyou asked Zhan Weiyang, “Why can’t, you give it to him, yourself?”

       Zhan Weiyang was opposite Chen Youyou, and the two of them were sitting in the corner of the cafeteria against the wall. The tables in the cafeteria were all four-person tables with fixed tables and chairs. There was an eight-person table with two tables put together in the middle. Zhan Weiyang and Chen Youyou always liked to sit near the wall because the two seats against the wall were inconvenient to enter, so as long as they sat down, no one would usually come to share a table with them.

       Zhan Weiyang’s situation was slightly better. Chen Youyou was often laughed at because of his stutter, so he never liked to associate with other boys in the class.

       Hearing Chen Youyou’s question at this time, Zhan Weiyang mixed the tomato scrambled eggs and rice with a spoon on the dinner plate and said, “I’m a little scared.”

       Chen Youyou said, “Scared of what?”

       Zhan Weiyang didn’t answer.

       Chen Youyou said of him, “You dare to chase a man, but don’t dare to send a love letter?”

       Zhan Weiyang still didn’t speak, silently scooping up a spoonful of rice and putting it into his mouth.

       After a while, Chen Youyou suddenly said to Zhan Weiyang, “Xie Ling.”

       Zhan Weiyang turned around and saw Xie Ling walking towards the cafeteria door from the aisle next to their dining table. The two of them looked up at Xie Ling at the same time, but Xie Ling did not turn his head to look at them until he passed by them.

       He was also wearing a school uniform, a white T-shirt with a blue collar, and a pair of blue trousers on her legs. Xie Ling looked better than others when he wore it, and he had a sassy youthful atmosphere.

       There were two boys and one girl walking with Xie Ling.

       The girl was small in stature and cute in appearance. When she passed by their table, she glanced at Zhan Weiyang and saw that Zhan Weiyang was also looking at her. She also smiled and winked at Zhan Weiyang.

       When they passed by, Chen Youyou said, “Let’s go, stop eating, let’s see where, they go.” After that, he asked Zhan Weiyang to take the dinner plate to the recycling place and hurriedly chased Xie Ling and the others away.

       After Xie Ling finished lunch, he went to the playground with the two boys to play ball for a while.

       Zhan Weiyang and Chen Youyou hid in a dark corner where the sun couldn’t shine, watching him from a distance. Chen Youyou folded the envelope and put it in the pocket of his school uniform. When he was folding it, Zhan Weiyang opened his mouth and held back without stopping him. Now, when he took it out, except for the creases, the pink envelope paper was soaked with Chen Youyou’s sweat.

       Zhan Weiyang glanced at the envelope and then at Chen Youyou.

       Chen Youyou wiped the sweat on his face with his hand and said with some embarrassment, “It’s too hot.”

       Zhan Weiyang thought about it, felt that he was right, and nodded.

       Xie Ling probably just wanted to do some exercise after dinner. After lazily shooting basketballs for a while, he threw the ball to his classmates and walked towards the direction of the school building by himself.

       Zhan Weiyang saw Xie Ling coming over and stretched out his hand to push Chen Youyou.

       Chen Youyou hurriedly ran in the direction of Xie Ling until he stood in front of Xie Ling, blocking Xie Ling’s way.

       Zhan Weiyang saw the two of them talking but couldn’t hear what they were saying. He only saw Xie Ling shaking his head, bypassing Chen Youyou and trying to continue walking forward.

       Chen Youyou refused to give up, forced the envelope into Xie Ling’s hand, then turned around and ran away.

       Xie Ling frowned and looked down at the envelope in his hand for a while, then continued walking forward.

       Chen Youyou had already run back to Zhan Weiyang, and the two of them looked at Xie Ling’s back under the tree.

       Xie Ling walked to the exit of the playground, casually tossing the envelope into the nearby trash bin. Without looking back, he continued walking forward.

       Chen Youyou was startled and turned his head to look at Zhan Weiyang.

       Zhan Weiyang was stunned and asked Chen Youyou, “Did you tell him it was me?”

       Chen Youyou said, “Y-you didn’t say what was written in the letter, I didn’t, say anything, just said, it was a friend of mine.” He was really embarrassed to tell Xie Ling in person that it was a love letter from a boy, so he thought that it was okay to let Xie Ling misunderstand that it was a girl for the time being.

       Zhan Weiyang didn’t say anything anymore and walked forward alone until he walked to the trash can, opened the lid, and picked up the pink envelope that fell on top.

       The envelope was soaked with Chen Youyou’s sweat, and part of the pale pink was turned into rose red, and Xie Ling’s name on it was also blurred.

       Zhan Weiyang took the bad-looking love letter and looked back at Chen Youyou, who was following him. In fact, there was no expression on his face, except that the corners of his eyes and mouth were slightly drooped, and a drop of sweat fell down just past the corners of his eyes.

       Chen Youyou suddenly felt that he was aggrieved and felt uncomfortable in his heart, and said, “Forget it, X-Xie Ling didn’t have a good taste. Let’s next, let’s chase a girl next time, I-I will help you write a love letter, o-okay?”

       Zhan Weiyang said ‘En’ softly, folded the envelopes and put them into the pocket of his school uniform pants.

       After school in the afternoon, Zhan Weiyang bought a lighter at the small supermarket in front of the school. He rode his bicycle home, squatted down by the flower stand in front of his home, lit the lighter and burned the letter.

       When it was halfway burning, Zhan Weiyang heard Pei Qing’s voice behind him, “What are you burning?”

       He turned around suddenly and glanced at Pei Qing in panic. He then turned back and saw that even the writing on the envelope was not burned. He breathed a sigh of relief and said, “Scrap paper.”

       Pei Qing clearly saw the remaining half of the envelope but said nothing. After Zhan Weiyang burned the entire envelope, he deliberately asked, “It’s not a report card, right?”

       Zhan Weiyang stood up, patted the dust on his hands, and said, “No, there are no exams yet. The school has just started.” He looked up at Pei Qing and asked, “Qing ge is done with work?”

       Pei Qing nodded, “Yeah, I just came back.”

Chapter 5

       As soon as Pei Qing looked up, he found that Zhan Weiyang was peeking at him with his mobile phone camera. He just glanced over calmly, pretended not to see anything, lowered his head and continued reading.

       Zhan Weiyang was rustling on his side, holding his cell phone to reply to a message. Then he put the cell phone aside, picked up a pen and started working on the questions attentively.

       This time, he was really focused. Although he didn’t know whether he got it right or not, at least he answered one question after another.

       Teachers often said that no matter whether they could answer the question correctly or not during the exam, they must write something so that the teacher marking could give them points. Zhan Weiyang remembered this sentence very well.

       From time to time, the sound of Pei Qing turning the pages of a book could be heard behind him.

       Pei Qing was reading seriously. He would occasionally look up at Zhan Weiyang. Ever since he caught Zhan Weiyang peeking at him with his cell phone, Zhan Weiyang had been burying his head doing questions.

       Zhan Weiyang’s grades were not good; this was what Zhan Weiguang had told him before. In the three years since Pei Qing’s father remarried Zhan Weiyang’s aunt, he had only seen Zhan Weiyang during the Chinese New Year and almost never communicated.

       At first, he thought Zhan Weiyang was introverted, but when he moved into their home this time, he realized that Zhan Weiyang was actually a bit slow.

       He heard that Zhan Pengcheng started from scratch and was very good at doing business. He worked hard from being a small boss to now having a good-sized company. Zhan Weiguang was also smart. He went to the same high school as Zhan Weiyang. At that time, he was a popular figure in the school. He had good grades and was good at sports. He was also good-looking. He was admitted to a prestigious university in a first-tier city in the college entrance examination.

       Why was Zhan Weiyang slow?

       Pei Qing couldn’t figure it out and didn’t ask. In the end, his surname was not Zhan, and he had no blood relationship with the Zhan family. He was not as friendly in his heart as he looked on the outside.

       He would have planned to rent a house if it hadn’t been for his father and stepmother’s insistence. Not only would living in other people’s homes cause trouble to others, but his own life would also be inconvenient.

       Pei Qing turned the page of the book in his hand and raised his head to look at Zhan Weiyang. Zhan Weiyang was poking his head with the cap of his pen sadly, as if he could get the answer to the question with just a poke. Pei Qing lowered his gaze, hesitated a little, put the book aside, stood up, walked behind Zhan Weiyang, and asked, “Do you need help?”

       Zhan Weiyang was startled by Pei Qing’s sudden voice. He looked back and subconsciously pushed the book to the side so that Pei Qing could see the title clearly.

       There was no second chair in the room, so Pei Qing could only bend down and get close to Zhan Weiyang to read the question.

       High school math questions were not that simple, but Pei Qing was good at these questions. He took the scratch paper on the table and the pen to explain to Zhan Weiyang how to solve the problem.

       Zhan Weiyang listened very carefully and kept nodding.

       After Pei Qing finished speaking, he handed the pen back to Zhan Weiyang. When Zhan Weiyang started to write the answers, he stood aside and looked at the homework in front of him. He found that Zhan Weiyang had made more than one question wrong.

       But after Zhan Weiyang finished the question, he didn’t ask him anything, so he walked away silently, returned to the bed and sat down to continue reading his book.

       By the time Zhan Weiyang finished the homework assigned by the teacher, it was already completely dark.

       He put down his pen and stretched. He stood up and walked to the window to take a look outside. He raised his hand to close the curtains. When he came back to sit down at the desk, Zhan Weiyang took out a new exercise book from the drawer. Tear off two pages of paper, carefully spread them out on the table, and solemnly pick up the pen to write a love letter to Xie Ling.

       When Zhan Weiyang was about to write the words ‘Xie Ling’ in the upper left corner, he hesitated and decided to leave it blank first, so he left two spaces at the beginning of the line and wrote ‘Hello’ directly and then he couldn’t continue writing.

       He was not Chen Youyou. He didn’t do his homework well at all. Every time he wrote an essay for an exam, he would rather die than write.

       Zhan Weiyang put down his pen and looked back at Pei Qing.

       Pei Qing quickly noticed his gaze and looked up at him, “What’s wrong?”

       Zhan Weiyang said hesitantly, “The teacher also assigned an essay today.”

       Pei Qing looked at the homework paper he tore off and spread out on the table, smiled slightly, and asked in a gentle tone, “What is it about?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Writing a love letter.”

       Pei Qing’s expression didn’t change at all; he just smiled and said, “Does a Chinese teacher in the second year assign homework to write love letters?”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded, “How should I write it? I have never written it before.”

       Pei Qing put the book aside and stood up slowly. He walked to Zhan Weiyang, looked down at the word ‘Hello’ written on his homework paper, and asked, “Do you need me to teach you how to write?”

       Zhan Weiyang said softly, “Thank you, Qing ge.”

       Pei Qing nodded and said, “Wait a moment.”

       He left Zhan Weiyang’s room, pushed a chair over from his own room, sat down next to Zhan Weiyang, then stared at Zhan Weiyang’s homework paper and asked, “Who are you writing to?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “There is no one, just an imaginary object.”

       Pei Qing glanced at him, “Then what kind of girl is the object of your imagination?”

       Zhan Weiyang did not answer immediately. He collected his thoughts before saying, “Tall, good-looking girl with good grades.”

       Pei Qing said, “Do you like girls with good grades?”

       Zhan Weiyang suddenly felt the need to explain. He said, “It’s not that I like it. That’s how it’s required.”

       Pei Qing didn’t understand what he said and asked, “Is it the requirement for homework?”

       Zhan Weiyang nodded.

       Pei Qing then said, “Okay then. Does she know you?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Don’t know.”

       Pei Qing tapped Zhan Weiyang’s homework paper with his slender fingers, “Then let’s start with self-introduction.”

       Zhan Weiyang lowered his head and exposed the white section of the back of his neck above his collar. He was holding the pen a little hard and wrote word by word, “I am Zhan Weiyang, Class 3, Grade 2, 17 years old. I am 174 centimetres tall, Aries, blood type B.”

       After he finished writing, he looked up at Pei Qing and asked, “Is this okay?”

       Pei Qing held his forehead with one hand, watched him finish writing in silence, and said, “It doesn’t need to be so detailed.”

       Zhan Weiyang was a little at a loss.

       Pei Qing noticed that he was a little nervous, so he patted his shoulder gently and said, “It’s okay, go ahead. You can write about how you first met her and how you felt at that time.”

       Zhan Weiyang then continued to write, “I met you at the school gate this morning. I thought you were very good-looking, and then I listened to your speech, and your voice was also very nice.” He raised his head, frowned and thought for a while, and he also wrote, “You have good grades, and I think you are very good.”

       Pei Qing saw this and asked him, “Do you like her just because of this?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “I don’t like him.”

       As soon as he finished speaking, he heard the cold female voice suddenly say: “The relationship status has been negatively enhanced, and 2 points have been deducted.”

       Zhan Weiyang suddenly stood up from the chair and looked at Pei Qing in panic.

       Pei Qing looked at him in surprise, “What’s wrong?”

       Zhan Weiyang said urgently, “I like him.”

       Pei Qing lowered his eyelashes to cover up the inexplicable feeling towards Zhan Weiyang in his eyes, showed a gentle smile and said, “If you like her, then you like her, don’t be nervous.”

       Zhan Weiyang was obviously still nervous. He was talking to System in his head: I like him, don’t deduct points from me.

       It’s a pity that the System ignored him.

       Pei Qing saw that he was standing, stretched out a hand to him and said, “Yangyang, come sit down, let’s continue writing.” He had called him Weiyang before, but this was the first time he had called Weiyang like how his father and grandma called him, Yangyang. He wanted to appease Zhan Weiyang’s emotions.

       Zhan Weiyang looked at Pei Qing’s hands. Pei Qing’s hands were as beautiful as his own, with slender fingers and clear joints. There was a thin layer of calluses on the palms and fingertips.

       The hand patiently stretched out to Zhan Weiyang, waiting for him. Zhan Weiyang calmed down, took Pei Qing’s hand, and returned to the desk to sit down.

       Pei Qing immediately withdrew his hand, pointed to his homework paper, and said, “Keep writing.”


Notes:
In chinese he/him is 他 (ta), she/her 她 (ta), that’s why when Pei Qing and Zhan Weiyang talking, Pei Qing didn’t realised that Zhan Weiyang was talking about a male friend and the fact that he didn’t write the name creates further misunderstanding
