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.”
