Ning Junyan drove Chen Yuncheng back to the trade market. It was a weekend and the market was really busy, so he didn’t park his car in the parking lot outside but drove directly to the entrance of Chen Yuncheng’s store.
There were two customers in the store, Wu Xiaozhu accompanied them to look at the goods, while Guan Anlin was at the door of the store, holding the delivery note and preparing the goods to be delivered today.
Then he saw a Land Rover parked behind their van.
With a cigarette in his mouth, Guan Anlin looked into the Land Rover, and sure enough, he saw Chen Yuncheng and Ning Junyan.
Chen Yuncheng was sitting on the passenger side and seemed to be about to get out of the car when Ning Junyan, who was in the driver’s seat, suddenly pulled him over and kissed him on the lips.
Guan Anlin couldn’t help cursing ‘fvck’ immediately, and the cigarette dangling from his mouth fell to the ground. Then he looked around nervously and found that no one was paying attention, so he was a little relieved.
At this time, Chen Yuncheng had already opened the door and got out of the car, but Ning Junyan didn’t stop by and drove away directly.
Guan Anlin walked towards Chen Yuncheng, with a bit of anger, “Are you crazy?”
Chen Yuncheng ignored him and walked to the side of the van, picked up the delivery notes that Guan Anlin had casually placed on top of the paper box and asked, “Is everything ready? I’ll help you.”
Guan Anlin pulled his arm and asked nervously but in a low voice, “Did you really go and get a room with him last night?”
Chen Yuncheng glanced at him, “Don’t need help, do you? Then I’ll go in first.” He pushed Guan Anlin’s hand away and went in to help Wu Xiaozhu to deal with customers.
It took some time to sign the form with the customer before eating at noon, and it was past one o’clock when Chen Yuncheng picked up the box lunch that Wu Xiaozhu bought for him and ate it. He sat on a chair at the door of the store, holding the box lunch and eating the cold meal.
Guan Anlin walked up behind him, pulled Chen Yuncheng’s collar away with his fingers, and saw rough hickey marks and even bite marks all around Chen Yuncheng’s neck and collarbone.
Chen Yuncheng’s hands were occupied, and he couldn’t slap his hands away, so he just raised his arms to avoid, “What are you doing?”
Guan Anlin pulled a chair from the store and sat beside him, with a serious expression on his face, “You really can’t change it, can you?”
Chen Yuncheng had eaten late at breakfast and was not very hungry at this time, the cold food did not taste good, he put his chopsticks on the lunch box and said with a sigh, “What should I change?”
Guan Anlin said in a rare heartfelt manner, “I’m telling you this because I treat you like a brother, otherwise if it was someone else, do you think I would care? You’ll be laughed at later if word gets out that you’re with a man.” He didn’t read much, and he didn’t know much about homosexuality, but his most simple idea was that Chen Yuncheng would be ridiculed, and he didn’t want to see his brother ridiculed by others.
Chen Yuncheng was silent for a while, and said, “But what should I do if I like him?”
Guan Anlin was stunned by the words.

Chen Yuncheng looked at Guan Anlin’s expression, and continued, “I just want to be with him, the kind that can’t be done without him.”
Guan Anlin was a little confused, “How can you not be able to do it without him? Have you ever tried to find a woman?”
Chen Yuncheng smiled, “Are you stupid? You’ll know if you like it or not when you start dating yourself, if you can get hard, do you still need to try?”
It was rare for him to speak so vulgarly, but he didn’t want Guan Anlin to keep dwelling on this matter with him. He had already made up his mind to accept his relationship with Ning Junyan, and his brother couldn’t change anything whether he accepted it or not. However, if Guan Anlin could understand him, he would naturally be the happiest.
For several days afterwards, Guan Anlin remained somewhat sullen and unhappy. He still wanted to say something, but he found that no matter what he said, Chen Yuncheng couldn’t listen.
Chen Yuncheng went to the job market and recruited another labourer to help Guan Anlin with his deliveries.
The labour was very young, only nineteen years old, and his name was Shi Peng. He just came out of his hometown to work.
Chen Yuncheng helped Shi Peng rent a single room outside the market for him to live in, but Shi Peng used to stay in the shop until late these two days before going back to the place where he lived outside, probably because he didn’t like to be alone.
It was past 5:30 in the afternoon, and the market hadn’t closed yet, but there were no customers inside.
Guan Anlin had just returned from delivering the goods, got out of the car, and walked into the store, opened the freezer, and took a bottle of Coke. He asked Wu Xiaozhu while drinking, “Where’s Cheng ge?”
Wu Xiaozhu pointed to the outside, not knowing exactly which direction she was pointing, and said, “He’s outside chatting with someone.”
Just as Shi Peng got off the passenger side, he saw a dark grey Land Rover parked behind their van, and a tall and handsome man got out of the car, so he stopped and stared at him.
Guan Anlin heard the sound of the car and came out of the shop, frowning fiercely when he saw Ning Junyan.
Ning Junyan asked him, “Where is Chen Yuncheng?”
Guan Anlin said, “What do you want from him?”
When Ning Junyan passed by him, he whispered, “Take him out for the night.” Then he went straight into the shop without looking at Guan Anlin.
Wu Xiaozhu had met Ning Junyan when Sun Shiliang invited him to dinner last time and knew that he was Chen Yuncheng’s friend. When she saw him coming, she immediately said, “Are you looking for Cheng ge? I’ll call him and ask him to come back.”
Ning Junyan nodded, “Thank you.”
Guan Anlin looked at Ning Junyan’s back with a gloomy face.
Shi Peng walked up to Guan Anlin at this moment, and asked, “Who is it, Lin ge?”
Guan Anlin said impatiently, “Don’t pry.”
After waiting for a few minutes, Chen Yuncheng came back from the outside. The weather was getting warmer every day recently, so Chen Yuncheng wore a light blue coat today, and his hair was a little longer than it had been during the New Year, making him look extra young.
When he saw Ning Junyan from a distance, he smiled, walked in quickly, and asked, “Why did you come over without calling me?”
Ning Junyan said, “The work has been temporarily adjusted this afternoon, so I came over since I had time.”
Chen Yuncheng was holding a mineral water bottle with a small half bottle of clear liquid in it, and he shook it in his hand.
Wu Xiaozhu lay on the table and asked him, “What is that, Cheng ge?”
Chen Yuncheng said, “Baijiu1white wine.” He then said to Ning Junyan: “Wait for me.” After he said that, he went into the inner room.
Ning Junyan followed in and closed the door behind him.
Guan Anlin stood at the door of the shop and watched them, lit a cigarette irritably, then he saw Shi Peng walking towards the inside, and quickly reached out his hand to stop him, “What are you doing?”
Shi Peng said, “Going to the bathroom.” He had wanted to go to the bathroom since he had just returned but ended up seeing Ning Junyan interrupting for a bit, and only now did he think about it again.
Guan Anlin rolled his eyes at him, “Don’t go.”
Shi Peng was puzzled, “Why?”
Guan Anlin didn’t bother to pay attention to him, and pointed in the direction of the public toilet, “Go over there if you’re in a hurry.”
Chen Yuncheng put the mineral water bottle next to the TV cabinet and went into the bathroom to wash his hands. He saw Ning Junyan when he came out, and asked, “Why are you here suddenly?”
Ning Junyan said, “Come to pick you up.”
Chen Yuncheng immediately understood what he meant, and asked, “Today?”
Ning Junyan looked at him, “Not good?”
Chen Yuncheng said, “Is it too late to book a hotel now?”
Ning Junyan said, “You can go to my house.”
Chen Yuncheng turned his gaze away and said, “Alright.” After he said that, he reached out to pick up the mineral water bottle just now, and said, “My friend gave me some wine, can you help me try how it tastes?”
Ning Jun extended his hand to take it, unscrewed the lid and smelled it, and said, “I don’t know baijiu.”
Chen Yuncheng said, “Drink a little bit, I think it tastes quite fragrant.”
Ning Junyan looked up at him, “I’m driving.”
“Right,” Chen Yuncheng said with some regret as he brought the bottle over and said, “I still want you to try the taste.”
Ning Junyan said, “It’s not impossible.”
“Huh?” Chen Yuncheng looked at him suspiciously.
Ning Junyan said, “You should take a sip first.”
Chen Yuncheng picked up the bottle obediently, took a sip of the wine, and just before he swallowed it, Ning Junyan kissed his lips.
Ning Junyan licked the taste left in his mouth and said, “Well, it smells good.”
Chen Yuncheng’s heart inexplicably fluttered, hugged Ning Junyan, and whispered in his ear, “Will this be considered drunk driving?”
Ning Junyan said in a low voice, “I don’t think so.”
As soon as he finished speaking, someone knocked on the door from outside, and Guan Anlin’s voice came in, “What are you doing?”
Ning Junyan replied without thinking, “I’m fvcking you—”
Before he finished speaking, Chen Yuncheng covered his mouth tightly to prevent him from continuing. At the same time, he gave him a vicious glare, pushed him away and went to open the door, “It’s nothing, you can come in.”
Probably Ning Junyang is going to say I’m fvcking your brother, lololol
