Moonshine is not far from Shanhai Road, it only takes ten minutes to walk there.
After night fell, the streets full of traffic during the day completely changed their appearance.
Colorful night lights are lit up on the plane trees standing on both sides, and the whole city is shrouded in a completely different atmosphere from the daytime.
The traffic is bustling and the high-rise buildings are brightly lit. It is worthy of being one of the top ten cities in the country for night scenes.
However, Ye Cheng has no interest in appreciating it at all, and is doing psychological construction for himself along the way:
Calm down, be calm later.
But when he walked to the door of the bar, he looked up and saw the familiar light sign, and all his psychological defenses collapsed instantly.
—moonshine is a **** family, the place where he and Lu Xiao first met.
After Ye Cheng went to college, same-sex marriage was legalized.
The people around him know his sexuality, and sometimes they will meet at a **** bar to relax.
With a face of his level, as soon as he entered it, it was like a lamb entering a wolf’s den.
But he never made an appointment, only drinking and chatting with friends at the booth.
moonshine has a feature. Before 0:00, it is normal business, and after 0:00, it starts to gather same-sex friends.
Many people don’t know this, and they were shocked when they entered the night show by mistake. That’s how Lu Xiao was tricked by his friends.
He had just returned to China that year, and he was surrounded by a group of rich second-generation who liked what he wanted.
Lu Xiao was wearing a tall black shirt, and the male model was 1.89 meters tall. When passing through their booths, they are like walking hormones, attracting countless eyes to follow.
Ye Cheng’s little roommate immediately suggested to continue the big adventure game just now. Whoever loses will ask that Tiancai for WeChat.
Amid the chaotic music and crowd, Ye Cheng met his gaze across a few seats.
Lu Xiao’s brows were furrowed, apparently unaware that there was a “midnight show” here.
Ye Cheng laughed and said, “Are you sure you want him? The half-blood next to him looks more reliable.”
“Don’t be in vain, you can talk to him even if he is rejected. I haven’t seen such a superb No. 1 for a long time.” Roommate Shasha.
They played a round of dice, and they never expected that Ye Cheng would lose.
The roommate looked at him enviously: “Come on, come on, remember to share if you want!”
Under the instigation of several people, Ye Cheng had to bite the bullet and prepare to go.
But just when he looked up, Lu Xiao suddenly got up and walked over.
The others let out a frightened gasp, and saw him getting closer and closer, and finally stood in front of Ye Cheng.
“Excuse me, can you add a WeChat?” Lu Xiao took out his phone and said.
His voice was low and magnetic, and half the bar was silent.
Later, Ye Cheng found out that they were also betting at the table that day.
That half-blood was a frequent visitor here, knowing that Ye Cheng never sent WeChat, so he deliberately wanted to play a prank with Lu Xiao.
Lu Xiao couldn’t stand the excitement, so he came over and asked for it on impulse.
As a result, on the second day, the most annoying thing happened to Ye Cheng.
At that time, the dormitory was celebrating his affair, and he also got an offer from Lu’s.
Only he found out that the person who took the initiative to let him scan the QR code last night has not yet passed his friend application.
Co-authored and fucked.
Ye Cheng was in a speechless mood and got up early to report to Lu’s.
He followed a group of people into the elevator, and the elevator door slowly closed.
Suddenly someone pressed the door, and a familiar figure walked in.
“Mr. Lu is early.” The person who opened the door greeted enthusiastically.
The others said to the people who came in: “Mr. Lu, good morning.”
In the narrow space, Ye Cheng raised his head and stared at each other with Lu Xiao in a suit.
The atmosphere fell into extreme embarrassment.
Seeing this bar again, Ye Cheng’s heart surged with new hatred and old hatred.
Dare to love Lu Xiao all lied to him. In fact, he had been to this bar since high school.
Ye Cheng, who was full of energy and blood, didn’t notice that it was only after eight o’clock, and the “Midnight Show” had not even started.
He took off the school badge and name tag on the school uniform and pushed the door in with anger.
There is no master at this time, the atmosphere is not very high, there is a resident singer on stage performing.
The receptionist came this way.
Without waiting for him to speak, Ye Cheng said that he had a friend gathering here and asked him to help lead the way.
The crowd around the booth was sparse, and it was estimated that they went to the private room.
The bartender checked the order and asked if he was a girl surnamed Jiang.
Ye Cheng nodded coldly, and followed him into the aisle.
As soon as I arrived at the door of the private room, I heard the sound of roaring and deafening music inside.
Ye Cheng pushed the door open without hesitation, and the smoky smell made people unable to open their eyes.
The environment in the private room is dim, extravagant and ambiguous, and a group of people are sitting on the sofa breathing clouds.
He could vaguely tell that the one sitting in the middle was Lu Xiao, with Jiang Jin and Jiang Yirong sitting beside him.
I can’t go to self-study in the evening. I come to such a place to smoke and drink, and there are a bunch of messy people sitting next to me.
Ye Cheng’s face was terrifying.
He walked over quickly, picked up the wine on the table, raised his hand and splashed Lu Xiao’s face.
There was an uproar in the private room, and the girls covered their mouths and screamed.
The scene was very chaotic.
Lu Xiaozheng condescended to be a wingman for half an hour, and suddenly he was hit by a disaster, and his anger jumped up.
“Fuck, are you **** courting death?” He didn’t even think about it, stood up, grabbed the man’s collar, and pulled him over across the coffee table.
This time, one of the buttons on Ye Cheng’s neckline collapsed, and Gu Lulu rolled to the ground.
The two were very close in an instant, and the delicate and beautiful face of the young man came into view.
Be caught off guard.
Even if the lights were dim, those indifferent and angry eyes still hit the heart, and the drooping eyelashes trembled slightly, with a slender and delicate feeling of fragility.
For some reason, looking at the tear mole at the corner of his eye, Lu Xiao suddenly felt a sense of deja vu.
This look… always feels like I’ve seen it somewhere.
His heart moved suddenly.
Fragmented images flashed before his eyes.
There seemed to be a potential voice telling him that whenever Ye Cheng showed such an expression, he must have done something wrong.
It’s his fault.
He shouldn’t have a cold war with him, he shouldn’t have come to the bar by himself without saying a word.
This absurd consciousness gradually invaded his mind like a wild horse.
Ye Cheng was ready to fight him long before he came.
He subconsciously clenched his fist, his eyes burning with anger: “Do you know what you are doing?”
He wanted to beat the **** for a long time.
Jiang Jin, who was next to him, had already recognized him, and was so startled that he quickly stood up and tried to persuade him to fight.
Who knows, next second.
Lu Xiao instinctively released his hand to cover his head, and blurted out, “I’m sorry, I was wrong!”
Everyone was silent and looked at them dumbfounded.
There was a dead silence in the box.
The air froze.
Lu Xiao suddenly realized what he just said.
What’s the matter, what happened to him just now? Why is there such an outrageous move…
For a split second, he felt like he was being controlled by muscle memory.
The subconscious voice told him: It’s right to admit counseling.
Lu Xiao felt that the sky was thundering. In his proud seventeen years of life, he never knew how to write the word “cowardly”.
Why did it become like this? !
Twenty minutes later, on Shanhai Road, the cold night wind calmed down the restless mind.
Lu Xiao’s face was blue, and he stubbornly said, “It’s just like this, what else do you have to say?”
Ye Cheng’s eyes were complicated, and his tone wasn’t much better: “But you shouldn’t come to drink either. Are you being so outspoken in your words?”
“I didn’t drink.”
“Then you smell so much alcohol?”
“You spilled it, thank you.”
After Lu Xiao finished saying this, he stopped looking away from him, as if he was a little aggrieved.
Ye Cheng choked, and did not speak with a cold face.
Lu Xiao waited in the cool breeze for nearly a minute, but didn’t hear a word from the other party.
He pointed to his soaked T-shirt in disbelief: “You won’t apologize to me?”
I don’t know if it was because he had been in this high school student’s body for a long time, Ye Cheng felt that his mind dropped sharply as soon as he talked to him, and his mood was extremely easy to fluctuate.
He looked badly and said, “Why should I apologize? You didn’t tell me the answer when you were in class. Why didn’t you apologize?”
If Jiang Jin hears this conversation, it is absolutely reasonable to suspect that the two of them have been squeezed by the door at the same time.
This kind of argumentative speech, he has not spoken since elementary school.
But Lu Xiao didn’t think so, and there was even a hint of injury in his dark eyes.
He was silent for a long time, and suddenly answered nonsense: “Ye Cheng, did you give your password casually?”
The thoughtless words made Ye Cheng stunned.
After Lu Xiao finished speaking, he turned his head and left without waiting for him to answer.
His back was full of “I’m not happy”, and his hair wet with alcohol was stubbornly curled up.
It’s a little pathetic.
Ye Cheng stood there with a questioning face.
What does this have to do with passwords?
After that day, Lu Xiao obediently came back to class.
But the two of them didn’t talk to anyone, and they even moved a distance of ten centimeters between the desks.
Every night, after arranging the table neatly, the next day will find that there is another three-eighth line of air in the middle.
Jiang Jin was the first to notice something was wrong, but he thought it was the reason for the friction that day, so he didn’t take it too seriously.
Until this situation lasted for three days, and the fire at the city gate affected Chiyu—Ye Cheng stopped copying his homework.
Jiang Jin suddenly felt that the sky was falling, and he couldn’t bear the nightmare of reading ten wrong questions in English, so he dared to send a message to Lu Xiao in the self-study class.
Jiulong Wu Yanzu: [Brother Xiao, why don’t you forgive Brother Orange, he also has good intentions. 】
Lu Xiao ignored him.
He continued to work tirelessly: [We can’t be too careful, or I’ll set up a line and ask you to have a meal together at noon? 】
Lu Xiao looked down at his phone and was about to type.
Jiulong Wu Yanzu: [In the past few days, he went out to eat with the buddy from the lobster shop last time, and it happened that everyone knew each other. 】
【How about making an appointment with that store? 】
He waited for five minutes, but Lu Xiao still didn’t answer him.
Jiang Jin couldn’t bear it any longer and typed: [Brother Xiao? 】
As soon as it was sent out, a red exclamation mark popped up in the chat box.
Jiang Jin: “…”
Lu Xiao blocked him.
the same day.
Another hot thread came out on the forum: What is the situation in the East Building and West Building now? Fighting again? (No swearing in this post)
Main Building: The East Building has been very uneven these two days. Lao Qi has been asked for trouble one after another, and the first brother has taken gunpowder? He wouldn’t have bothered to find fault with this little accident before.
1L: Put an ear.
2L: Thank you for your invitation, Lao Qi was the first to die. He spread rumors with others, saying that the first brother had a leg with him at the same table, and he was taught by the first brother.
3L: What, what? The first brother’s tablemate, wouldn’t it be Ye Cheng last time?
4L: The above, yes, Ye Meimei.
22L: Hahaha, I’m really convinced by Lao Qi, as expected of the No. 1 idiot in the 13th Middle School. So is there any evidence? I want to see too.
23L: He was educated because he had no evidence. He said that Ye Meijian ate Jiang Meimei’s vinegar and rushed into the private room to pour a brother’s wine. Afterwards, the first brother chased him out and coaxed him for a long time.
24L: My day, why does it sound a little sweet?
38L: There shouldn’t be too much rhythm in this building. Is there a serious illness? Two straight guys, okay, what a **** love triangle plot…
39L: It’s just me, the point is that the first brother was poured alcohol in public, but he didn’t beat him to the hospital? !
40L: Upstairs, I was hammered into the bottom of the pit by this point, and it killed me!
Jiang Jin looked at the reply below, and his heart skipped a beat.
Looking at the interface where Lu Xiao blocked him, he snorted again.
Not right, they are very wrong.
There was no evening self-study on Friday night, and everyone was free to swipe and chat.
Next door, Huang Shengan ran to the gate of No. 13 Middle School after class, waiting for Ye Cheng to finish school.
Gao Qiulan bought lobster and beef bones and specially called him over for dinner.
The two first turned to the alley to buy roast duck.
Huang Shengan tilted his head to look at Ye Cheng, who was silent all the way, and asked curiously, “What’s wrong with you, with the words ‘unhappy’ written all over your face, who offended you?”
Ye Cheng has been really depressed these days.
Originally thought that with his understanding of Lu Xiao, he could easily control the changes of this guy, but instead he put himself in.
After all, he overlooked something.
The twenty-seven-year-old Lu Xiao is still very different from the seventeen-year-old Lu Xiao.
Twenty-seven-year-old Lu Xiao would confess his feelings, while seventeen-year-old Lu Xiao would bury his emotions in his heart.
After all, he is a sensitive boy.
He looked Huang Shengan up and down until he got goosebumps.
That’s right, isn’t there a seventeen-year-old high school student here?
“If your friend is suddenly angry and refuses to communicate with you, how should he stop being angry?” he asked seriously.
Huang Shengan was shocked by his youthful pain-filled question, and it took him a while to say, “Why is he mad at you?”
Ye Cheng thought about it and said, “It seems that I told others about the password, but I don’t seem to have done such a thing.”
Huang Shengan was speechless and choked: “Is the game password? It’s all up to you, is it your girlfriend?”
“…No.” Ye Cheng had a hard time explaining to him.
They carried roast ducks through the sparsely populated alley, and a few people with cigarettes came across them.
Ye Cheng was thinking about what to say, when he heard a familiar voice.
“I said who walks without looking at the road. It turns out that he is the number one in our grade.”
The poignant tone of that broken gong voice is deeply memorable after hearing it once.
Ye Cheng raised his head and looked at Zhang Qi with a mocking face.
Zhang Qi saw the school uniform on Huang Sheng’an’s body, pouted and said, “Why, I haven’t been playing with Lu recently, but with this little white face?”
Huang Shengan only learned about Ye Cheng’s sexual orientation after college, so he frowned at him for unknown reasons.
Ye Cheng gave him a cold look, and was about to pass him and leave.
Zhang Qi suddenly shrugged his shoulders and bumped into it, and took advantage of the situation to grab the plastic bag he was carrying.
Ye Cheng didn’t expect his sudden action, the bag in his hand flew out, and the roast duck spilled on the ground.
“Oh, sorry, I accidentally bumped into you.” Zhang Qi immediately raised his hands in a gesture of surrender, and said shamelessly.
“Hey, why are you like this? Don’t you apologize!” Huang Shengan was angry and said angrily.
Ye Cheng stopped him, looked at Zhang Qi and said, “Don’t apologize, pay me a new one.”
Zhang Qi smiled gloomily: “Are you sure you dare to let me pay you?”
As he said that, he raised his hand and wanted to pull Ye Cheng’s collar.
Who knew that Ye Cheng’s reaction was faster than him.
He quickly blocked Zhang Qi’s arm with a backhand, took advantage of the situation to cut his arms behind him, and slammed them against the wall.
A series of actions happened in just a few seconds, and no one had time to do anything.
“What’s wrong?” Ye Cheng pressed his shoulders and said coldly.
There was a slight sound as the bones collided.
“Fuck you, uncle!” Zhang Qi squeezed out a sentence from between his teeth in pain.
Only then did the few people behind him react, and they all rushed up.
Seeing that his posture was not right, Huang Shengan spat immediately, posing for a fight with them.
At this moment, several figures came over from the alley.
Ye Cheng threw Zhang Qi aside and saw the figure of the leader.
It’s Lu Xiao.
Zhang Qi froze in place, obviously seeing him too.
After the other people noticed Zhang Qi’s wink, they didn’t dare to move.
“Brother Zhang, what are you doing?” Jiang Jin asked with a sneer, looking at the roast duck that had been spilled all over the floor.
Lu Xiao didn’t look at Ye Cheng, but stood face to face with Zhang Qi.
The atmosphere between the two was a bit tense, as if tacit.
Zhang Qi snorted and said sullenly, “Nothing, I accidentally knocked off his roast duck.”
Jiang Jin glanced at Lu Xiao and said, “Oh, they’re all classmates. If you lose one, it’s better to pay for one. Isn’t that right, Brother Orange?”
He blinked at Ye Cheng.
Zhang Qi mocked: “I will lose, of course I will lose.”
“No need to pay.”
Lu Xiao’s voice sounded, and the surroundings fell silent.
Ye Cheng suddenly looked at him, and the five fingers hanging by his side were slightly folded.
Jiang Jin was even more stunned, and almost wrote “No, you won’t help Zhang Qi” on his face.
Zhang Qi didn’t expect him to say this, and his face was also very exciting.
Lu Xiao moved his lips, and the next sentence made him fall into an ice cellar.
“It’s not good to waste food, just eat what’s on the ground.”
The air was dead silent again.
Zhang Qi gasped for breath, the anger in his eyes was completely aroused.
Compared with the real school bully, he was humiliated, and he was still a long way off.
Seeing that the situation was not good, Jiang Jin hurriedly said: “Well, Brother Xiao, aren’t you here to buy roast duck? Let’s go quickly, we have to queue up… it’s almost six o’clock.”
Lu Xiao still looked at Zhang Qi motionless, from Ye Cheng’s point of view, he could clearly see his expression.
The eyebrows were pressed down very low, the black eyes flashed with coldness, and the nose was slightly opened, looking angry.
Zhang Qi stared at him for a while, then gritted his teeth and said, “Lu Xiao, don’t be too arrogant.”
He glanced at Ye Cheng again, and turned away angrily.
Lu Xiao didn’t stop him.
After he left, Jiang Jin patted his chest with lingering fears and said, “Brother Xiao, calm down. You two made a promise in the Academic Affairs Office last time, and if you fight again, you will be punished.”
The boy next to them was the captain of the basketball team, a mixed-race boy, and persuaded, “That’s right, it’s not worth it for this kind of stinky fish and rotten shrimp, don’t forget what those old men said last time.”
Lu Xiao didn’t speak, his gaze passed the roast duck on the ground and landed on Ye Cheng.
He glanced at Ye Cheng, then glanced at Huang Sheng’an beside him, and turned away with a sullen face.
Ye Cheng frowned slightly.
Jiang Jin waved at him and quickly turned to chase after Lu Xiao.
“Brother Xiao, don’t you want to buy roast duck?”
The captain of the basketball team smiled at Ye Cheng and followed them away.
Huang Shengan shook his head again and again and said, “It’s really bad luck! I didn’t expect the 13th Middle School to be so chaotic, tell me why you want to transfer.”
He picked up the roast duck on the ground and threw it into the trash can, and said, “The ones from your class just now? They are quite loyal.”
“Yeah.” Ye Cheng lowered his eyes and responded.
Huang Sheng’an asked him strangely: “Why do I feel that the most handsome person seems to have a little opinion on you, are you stealing his position as the grassroots?”
Ye Cheng was a little down at first, and almost made him laugh.
“God **** class grass, it’s school grass, okay?”
Huang Shengan was interested in gossip: “Tsk, it’s rare that you can admit that someone is more handsome than you. The school grass of No. 13 Middle School is a bit interesting. What’s his name?”
Ye Cheng said, “Lu Xiao, I didn’t admit that he was more handsome than me, just stating the facts.”
Huang Shengan was stunned, and his face suddenly became a little weird.
“His name is Lu Xiao?” he asked in disbelief.
“What’s wrong?” Ye Cheng looked at him.
Huang Shengan’s mouth twitched: “The person who kicked you out of the team in the game that day, the note you gave him is Lu Xiao.”
Ye Cheng: “?”
Huang Shengan was stuck in his throat, hesitantly said, “The angry friend you mentioned is not him, is he? Why do I think…he seems to be jealous?”
