When Suo Yang and Shen Huiming went upstairs, the classrooms were mostly empty. It was now lunch break time and few people would stay there.
The two entered a classroom on the third floor, and Suo Yang walked in front, leading Shen Huiming all the way in.
The last row of the classroom was near the window, and the weather in early autumn was very good. With the windows opened, there was a comfortable cool breeze blowing in.
As they sat side by side, Suo Yang said, “Going to a university abroad should feel very different from the one inside the country.”
“Well, few of us stay at the school, and when we first went there, we were not used to the food there, so we had to learn to cook by ourselves.” Shen Huiming smiled, “It’s not like the local universities, where they have everything in the canteen.”
Suo Yang smiled, “When I was at the university, everyone always complained about the unpalatable food in the canteen and the rising price of food. But after graduation, I was exposed to how society was and started to live alone. Only then did I realize that the school canteen is actually very good and cheap. “
Two men who had left the university campus for many years sat in the classroom and told each other the stories of their student days, looking at the handwriting left by the teacher on the blackboard, looking at the water glass left by a classmate on the table in front of them, feeling a rare sense of relaxation.
Suo Yang was lying on the table, looking at the leaves blowing outside the window, while Shen Hui Ming looked at him slightly sideways, watching his hair being stroked by the wind blowing in.
“Do you think, if we had met when we were in college, what would have happened?”
Suo Yang still looked out of the window, and after a few seconds of silence, he said with a smile, “I don’t know, my imagination is really poor.”
The sound of music suddenly came from outside the window. It was the school’s radio station that started to play a song.
This was the tradition of Suo Yang’s school. Every day at one o’clock in the afternoon, the radio station would play songs until the class starts at half past one.
Suo Yang listened to the music and closed his eyes.
“There\’s wind that blows in from the north.”
To Suo Yang’s surprise, when he sang the first line of lyrics along with the melody, Shen Huiming’s voice came at the same time.
The breeze from the north met him unexpectedly.
The tacit understanding between him and Shen Huiming came unexpectedly again.
The two hummed a part of this song softly, and Suo Yang was a little sleepy, lying there lazily, enjoying the music, the autumn wind, and the rare good time.
He was drowsy and almost fell asleep. After an unknown amount of time, the classroom started to be noisy. Suo Yang sighed and sat up straight.
Shen Huiming looked at Suo Yang who was sleepy, and asked with a smile, “Are you asleep?”
“Maybe.” Or maybe he wasn’t asleep.
Who knows? But it didn’t matter at all.
It was almost time for the afternoon class and some students had already arrived early.
The students who came in looked at the two men sitting in the corner, some turned a blind eye, and some looked over curiously.
Suo Yang said, “People are going to study, let’s go.”
The two got up and left the classroom one after the other.
They walked against the flow of people along the path, and when they passed a small bush, they saw a young couple kissing.
Shen Huiming glanced at Suo Yang, and said, “Let me ask you a rather personal question.”
“Did you ever fall in love when you were in college?”
When he heard his question, Suo Yang subconsciously looked at the couple who were kissing as if no one else was around.
“No,” Suo Yang said, “There are only a few boys around, and they all like girls.”
Shen Huiming laughed out loud, “It’s a pity.”
“That’s right, if I didn’t go abroad, I would be your senior. If I was around, although we wouldn’t necessarily be able to talk, we wouldn’t necessarily not be able to talk either, don’t you think so?”
Suo Yang smiled softly, “Senior, have you ever thought about this, this school is so big and there are so many students. Even if we both go to school here, we may not know each other.”
“No, even if you don’t know me, I should know you.” Shen Huiming joked, “You are the Suo Yang who can score points as soon as he strikes ‘the enemy’ on the basketball court.”
Suo Yang glanced at him with an angry smile but had nothing to say.
The two walked around the school, and when it was almost time, they decided to go to a nearby cinema to watch a movie.
Shen Huiming was in charge of driving, and Suo Yang was in charge of selecting movies. Suo Yang said, “There doesn’t seem to be any good movies recently.”
“Is there anything you are interested in?” Shen Huiming said, “or relatively interested?”
There really wasn’t.
Suo Yang actually didn’t watch movies very much, he spends most of his rest time sleeping.
“Just choose one randomly.” Suo Yang opened the cinema’s film schedule, “You say a number, and you can watch whichever you choose.”
Shen Huiming smiled, “So random?”
“Mm-hmm, just that random.”
“1,” Shen Huiming said, “What’s at the top of the list?”
Suo Yang suddenly laughed loudly: “You really know how to choose.”
It just so happened that there was a red light ahead, so Shen Huiming parked the car and leaned over to check Suo Yang’s phone.
When he saw the film he had chosen, he immediately supported his forehead helplessly.
“What is this…” A domestic horror movie. He didn’t need to think but he knew there would be nothing worth watching, How about… you change it? “
“No need.” Suo Yang stifled a laugh and said, “Let’s just watch this.”
Suo Yang bought the tickets directly on the mobile phone, and when the two arrived at the cinema, they directly picked up the tickets and waited in line to enter.
Shen Huiming squeezed the movie ticket in his hand and lamented, “It’s been two years since I last came to the cinema, I didn’t expect that after two years, I would have to watch such an exciting film.”
Suo Yang browsed the cinema’s new film promotional board, pointed to it and said, “The plot is really exciting.”
As for the movie they were about to watch, even though it was a horror movie, the plot was very much like a ‘family ethic drama1Family ethics drama is a kind of popular drama whose main content is to reflect social ethics and moral issues. It constitutes the main form of popular drama creation in a melodramatic form.’. What was that brother-in-law, what kind of sister-in-law, Suo Yang couldn’t help laughing.
Shen Huiming stood behind Suo Yang watching him laughing, and he couldn’t help but laugh along with him.
Was this what it felt like to be in love and dating?
Shen Huiming thought it was even cuter than he had imagined.
Since it was a weekday, there were few students at this time, or rather, no one wanted to see this kind of movie.
After checking the tickets, Shen Huiming and Suo Yang went in, only to find that they were the only ones in the entire screening hall.
“The whole cinema is reserved,” Shen Huiming sat helplessly in the middle, “the atmosphere is good.”
Suo Yang was standing next to him on the left, unable to hide his smile all the time.
It didn’t really matter what kind of movie they were watching, what mattered was the fun that developed from the event itself.
Suo Yang felt that Shen Huiming’s reaction now was more interesting than any movie.
“Oh no,” Shen Huiming said, “I forgot to buy you a bucket of popcorn.”
Suo Yang smiled, “I’m not a kid who likes to eat snacks.”
“Then you have to do it for fun.”
Suo Yang patted him, “Don’t bother.”
The movie soon started, and as expected, the plot was too absurd to watch.
Shen Huiming was acting like he was sitting on pins and needles, while Suo Yang was like sitting as steady as a mountain.
With this alone, Shen Huiming was subdued by him.
But what Shen Huiming didn’t expect was that while Suo Yang seemed to be sitting steadily, he actually fell asleep after a while.
Was this person really tired?
He had slept on his stomach during the school day and then fell asleep again at the cinema.
Shen Huiming turned his head to look at him, and the flickering light of the movie shone on Suo Yang’s face, giving him a cold and beautiful look.
Suo Yang’s body was tilted to the other side, looking like he was about to fall down.
Shen Huiming made a quick decision and ran around to the other end and sat down, just in time to support Suo Yang with his shoulder.
Suo Yang woke up suddenly and looked at Shen Huiming in a daze.
Shen Huiming smiled, “Sleep, I’ll be your pillow.”
Suo Yang was a little embarrassed and wanted to sit up straight, but Shen Huiming grabbed his hand.
“Lean on me when you’re tired.” Shen Huiming said, “There’s nothing to see in this movie anyway.”
The two looked at each other for a few seconds in the dark screening room, Suo Yang lowered his head and smiled, and then leaned safely on Shen Huiming’s shoulder.
For more than an hour after that, until the end of the movie, Suo Yang actually didn’t fall asleep.
But he didn’t get up either and kept leaning on Shen Huiming.
Since childhood, Suo Yang had never been one to rely on others. Even if it was his parents, he would not act coquettishly. While other children were still being taken to school by their parents’ hands, Suo Yang was already waiting for the bus every day with his school bag on his back.
He was not used to being dependent, not used to relying on others, and he had never liked that feeling.
He wanted to be independent, to hold up his own life.
But at this moment, when he was leaning on Shen Huiming, he suddenly felt that it would be nice to have someone who could give him a break.
Suo Yang just leaned against Shen Huiming, and his hand was held by the other party all the time.
His palms were sweating and his heartbeat had increased in speed.
His eyes were closed, but it was as if he could see the two of them sitting in the cinema right now, and although the film shown was very ‘amusing’, it was particularly warm between them.
Meeting Shen Huiming was indeed a great thing.
The movie ended and the lights in the screening room slowly came on.
When Suo Yang straightened up, he felt a little bit sad.
But it had to end even though he was reluctant. He had borrowed his shoulders from Shen Hui Ming for over an hour and that was enough.
“Did you get some sleep?” Shen Huiming asked with concern.
“Probably, in a daze.” Suo Yang stretched his waist, “I’ve been flying too much recently, I couldn’t hold it, I’m sorry.”
“What are you apologising to me for?” Shen Huiming stood up with him, “If I hadn’t dragged you out on a date, you would have been able to rest better.”
The two walked out. This time it was Shen Huiming who walked in front, and Suo Yang looked at his back.
It was rare for Suo Yang to call Shen Huiming’s name.
The flattered Shen Huiming looked back at him and heard Suo Yang say, “When there is a good movie another day, I will treat you to a movie. I will definitely not sleep next time.”
This was the first time that Suo Yang had taken the initiative to invite Shen Huiming.
“I want to ask a question.”
“Have you dated anyone before?”
The two of them were standing in the exit aisle, with no one around and the soft red carpet under their feet.
Suo Yang said, “No.”
“Then have you seen a movie with someone else?”
Suo Yang replied, “No.”
Shen Huiming couldn’t believe it.
“I really didn’t.” Suo Yang said, “Today is the first time.”
Shen Huiming smiled, and suddenly took half a step forward, gently hugging Suo Yang in his arms, “Thank you.”
“Thank you for what?”
“Thank you for letting me take advantage of you.” Shen Huiming let go of him, and said with a smile, “Suo Yang, you’re spoiling me so much, I really have to suspect that you actually have a thing for me too.”
