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.
