Ye Cheng’s drenched school uniform exuded an icy aura, and he shrank in a warm and firm embrace, his arms still tightly wrapping around the opponent’s waist.
His hands were tight, and Lu Xiao felt a little short of breath, and his heartbeat was more deafening than the thunder outside.
Boom boom, boom boom.
He has lived for seventeen years, and has never embraced anyone of the opposite sex, let alone the same sex, except his mother.
The person in his arms lost his usual aloofness, like a wet kitten, shivering in front of his chest.
Lu Xiao’s Adam’s apple twitched, and he stood there bewildered, not knowing whether to push him away or hug him back to comfort him.
It doesn’t seem right to do anything.
Until the voice at the end of the corridor rang again.
Weak and inoffensive.
Ye Cheng gradually came to his senses, and the tone… seemed a little familiar, not quite like the baby spirit in the ghost movie.
A hand patted his back, his movements were very jerky, but his tone was very gentle: “Don’t be afraid, it’s a wild cat, there are often here.”
Only then did he realize what he had done, his face flushed red, and he quickly released his hand and took a step back.
If you want to die, how can you hug it.
Lu Xiao patted his hand and hung it in the air, then retracted it embarrassingly.
Ye Cheng remembered the purpose of coming here, temporarily put the panic behind him, looked at him and said, “Are you alright, why did you come to the hospital?”
Originally it was Lu Xiao who questioned him, but now he was asked.
Lu Xiao looked at his dripping trousers and didn’t answer him, but suddenly reacted: “You… came to see me?”
“That’s right, otherwise I would take such a heavy rain to go on an outing.” Ye Cheng said.
He tugged at his clothes uncomfortably, feeling extremely sticky and uncomfortable, like being entangled by some soft creature.
Hearing his words, Lu Xiao’s breathing became messy, and the fists hanging by his side clenched and loosened, as if suppressing some emotion.
Ye Cheng looked around and said, “There isn’t even a night shift worker here.”
Seeing Lu Xiao coming in through the door with something in his hand, he asked, “Don’t you feel uncomfortable, do you want to call a doctor for you?”
“No, I’m not uncomfortable.” Lu Xiao’s voice was slightly hoarse, hiding a gentleness that he didn’t even notice himself.
Ye Cheng looked at him and asked tentatively, “Have you been in a bad mental state recently?”
He has tried his best to be tactful and tactful.
Lu Xiao choked, and finally understood what he meant.
“I’m fine, it’s… a relative is hospitalized.” He scolded.
Ye Cheng relaxed in an instant, and the stone in his heart fell to the ground: “So that’s the case, I thought it was you.”
“How did you know…”
Lu Xiao opened his mouth, and halfway through the question, Ye Cheng couldn’t help sneezing.
He had been in the rain for a long time, and it was really freezing in the air-conditioned place.
Lu Xiao put on a jacket, and immediately took it off and put it on him.
He had obviously never done such a thing, and the jackets were piled on Ye Cheng’s shoulders in a mess.
Ye Cheng thanked him, and pulled the clothes off by himself.
“Wait for me here,” Lu Xiao shook the plastic bag in his hand and said, “I’ll put something on it and take you to the room.”
As soon as the words fell, both of them felt that something was not right.
Ye Cheng touched his nose and said “oh”.
Lu Xiao didn’t say anything else, turned around and walked towards the elevator entrance with an unnatural expression.
While waiting for him, Ye Cheng sent a message to Gao Qiulan, telling her that it was too raining to go back.
It was difficult to take a taxi in this weather, let alone in a place like Qingshan.
Gao Qiulan really didn’t sleep, so he replied that he should pay attention to safety, and sent her a location after arriving at the residence.
Ye Cheng didn’t want her to worry, so she agreed one by one.
Five minutes later, Lu Xiao came down.
“There’s only one umbrella upstairs, and I left that one there,” he said empty-handed.
Ye Cheng said, “Use mine, where are we going?”
On the way to the hospital, he vaguely remembered seeing a small hotel.
Lu Xiao said, “Let’s go, it’s not far from here.”
“Don’t you need to **** you?” Ye Cheng asked him.
“No.” He lowered his head, as if he didn’t want to say more.
The two walked out of the automatic door, and the strong wind rushed towards the face with the heavy rain, and the rain hit their arms.
“It’s big again.” Lu Xiao couldn’t help but say.
Ye Cheng returned the jacket to him and opened the umbrella against the strong wind.
He had to grab the handle of the umbrella with both hands so that the wind wouldn’t knock it over.
“Come here!” Because the thunderstorm was so loud, Ye Cheng had to shout.
Lu Xiao immediately moved closer to him, shoulder to shoulder.
The two squeezed under an umbrella and stepped into the rain with one foot.
The stagnant water quickly engulfed the uppers of the shoes, pouring down on them like a torrential rain.
The umbrella surface seemed to have been pressed by a large basin of water, and even concave downward.
“I **** wear it. I have to come here every summer.” The umbrella was still not big enough, Lu Xiao was splashed with water, and said incompetently and furiously.
A flash of lightning flashed across, and Ye Cheng could see his face clearly.
The wet hair covered his forehead, the rain dripped from his forehead to his chin, and his dark eyes flickered unhappily.
Like an angry puppy, Ye Cheng was amused by this idea.
He didn’t know that he was also an animal analogy in the other party’s heart, otherwise he could quarrel on the spot.
Lu Xiao shook his hair, squinted at him and said, “Why are you laughing, you can still laugh.”
His expression was a bit evil, so handsome that people couldn’t take their eyes off him.
Ye Cheng was distracted for a while, not grasping the angle of the umbrella, and the strong wind suddenly blew the umbrella over.
Whoops, rain poured over my head.
All right now, both of them look like they just got out of the water.
“Ye Cheng! What are you doing?” Lu Xiao was so angry that his voice broke.
Ye Cheng couldn’t help laughing, Lu Xiao and him looked at each other and couldn’t help but laugh.
Like two fools, they pointed at each other and laughed wildly in the rain.
The rib of the umbrella had been broken and could no longer hold up.
In the end, Lu Xiao had no choice but to cover their heads with his more than 20,000 jackets and run all the way in the rain.
The two pairs of slender legs crossed the puddles, splashing monstrous water and mud.
During the summer thunderstorms, they snuggled together to run and laugh.
Soon, they arrived at the small hotel Ye Cheng saw.
There is a dilapidated light sign hanging at the door with the words “Ruyi Hotel” written on it.
It looks like a red light district.
Lu Xiao lived here last night because there was only one store nearby.
At first, Ye Cheng was worried about whether he could check in without his ID card, but the hotel owner only asked him to write his ID number by hand.
The boss was an old man in his sixties, his cloudy blue eyes swept between the two of them, looking at them constantly.
“Are you sure you want two rooms? Don’t come to me to check out in the middle of the night when you think it’s not worth it.” He asked in Qingshan dialect.
His tone was as mean and sharp as his face, and the hands that recorded the information were covered with age spots, as thin as a layer of skin on the skeleton.
Lu Xiao said impatiently, “Two rooms. Get another plate of mosquito coils and a new towel.”
He said to Ye Cheng, “There are many mosquitoes here at night.”
Ye Cheng looked at the surroundings, the moldy walls were covered with cobwebs, the ceiling was cracked with two cracks, and every place smelled of disrepair.
The only boss was chattering, his expression seemed to be cursing at any time.
Taking advantage of him turning around to look for the mosquito coil, Ye Cheng lowered his voice and said, “Isn’t this a black shop?”
Lu Xiao glanced at him: “You are quite imaginative.”
“Ten yuan.” The boss handed over the mosquito coil and towel tremblingly. The mosquito coil is still the kind that needs to be lit with a lighter.
Lu Xiao scanned the QR code to pay and took Ye Cheng upstairs.
The boss stood at the front desk and looked at them, motionless like a statue, very strange.
The corridor on the second floor was covered with a dark red carpet with mottled oil stains and unknown hairs stuffed in the gaps.
There is a smell of moisture mixed with disinfectant in the air, which is not good.
I don’t know if it was because of the rain, Ye Cheng felt a chill all over his body, and his heart was groggy.
Until Lu Xiao took him to the last room and swiped his card to open the door.
“Here, you live in this room, and I live next to you.”
Ye Cheng suddenly got goosebumps.
Fuck! The most haunted last room in the legend!
The fateful last room!
He hesitated to speak, the words on his lips were very hot.
Would it be too embarrassing to talk about changing rooms at this time…
I was frightened by a wild cat just now, and now I have to change rooms. It is estimated that Lu Xiao will laugh at him for ten years in the future.
– Forget it.
Lu Xiao helped him turn on the light, which was a double standard room.
He skillfully took out the iron plate from the cabinet and lit the mosquito coil with a lighter.
The pungent smell spread out, and Ye Cheng coughed twice.
“It’s almost an hour of burning, remember to put out the fire.” Lu Xiao said.
Ye Orange nodded.
The two stood face to face in the room, and the feeling of crampedness that had just been suppressed came up again.
Lu Xiao couldn’t help feeling nervous, and he didn’t know where to put his eyes and hands.
“I’m leaving first, you can call me later.” He left a sentence and left in a hurry.
Ye Cheng actually wanted to find an excuse to stay with him for a while, such as playing cards or something, at least until he finished taking a shower.
Now that Lu Xiao is gone, he has to take a shower alone.
Many people who love to watch ghost movies and are timid have a common problem, that is, they will fantasize when they close their eyes.
It’s not that you are born to be cranky, but you can’t help it at all.
Ye Cheng almost collapsed under the shower, always feeling that there were eyes staring at him, blood red and blood red, and he was going to be swallowed up in the next second.
After rushing out of the battle bath, he ran out of the bathroom only to find that he had not changed into clean clothes.
Ye Cheng suddenly felt fortunate that Lu Xiao was not around, otherwise it would be embarrassing.
He turned on all the lights and lay on the bed with half-dry hair, his bare skin tickled by the poor quality sheets.
He was obviously tired, but he still couldn’t sleep.
The cell phone signal is very poor and keeps going in circles.
Ye Cheng tossed and turned for a while, and suddenly, there was a pop above his head, and the light went out.
He jumped up from the bed in shock and sat stiffly in the dark.
The phone with the charger plugged into the bed also dimmed, and it appeared to be a power outage.
From the bathroom came the sound of dripping water from the shower.
Ye Cheng hugged his head, and the hairs all over his body stood up.
He was slightly night blind, and when the power went out, he was like a blind man, as if he was in a dark abyss.
After two seconds, I finally couldn’t bear it anymore, and decided to get out of bed and put on clothes.
He felt in the dark in a panic, and even put on his pants upside down.
However, he couldn’t wait any longer and ran out barefoot.
Ye Cheng ran to the next door, slammed the door hurriedly, and whispered, “Lu Xiao, Lu Xiao.”
The door was pulled open from the inside, and the surroundings were pitch black.
Ye Cheng couldn’t see the figure in front of him, and could only hear the uneven breathing.
He stared wide-eyed and tried to keep his voice steady: “The power goes out, uh, can I stay with you for a while?”
Lu Xiao was quiet, scolded something in a low voice, then reached out and dragged him in.
“You don’t move yet,” he said.
The deep voice was a bit chaotic, but Ye Cheng didn’t notice it. He stood nervously by the door and waited. Lu Xiao didn’t let him move and he didn’t dare to move.
There was a rustling movement in the room, and he realized it only now. It is estimated that Lu Xiao was not wearing clothes just now, and now he is putting the clothes that are not dry on his body.
Ye Cheng felt very insecure in the dark, and groped forward with both hands.
A hand touched him, then held him back.
Lu Xiao’s hand was a little bigger than his, and wrapped him tightly.
With the hot palm on the back of his hand, Ye Cheng couldn’t help shivering, but his heart felt a little more stable.
“Follow me, don’t hit the wall.” Lu Xiao led him towards the bed and asked, “Can’t you see?”
Ye Cheng blinked and said, “I can’t see clearly, walk slowly.”
Lu Xiao was very patient, letting him move forward inch by inch.
After touching the edge of the bed, Ye Cheng relaxed and sat down stumblingly.
Lu Xiao grabbed his hand unilaterally and released it unilaterally.
The moment he let go, Ye Cheng suddenly felt a little helpless and sat with his back stiff.
On the other bed, there was the sound of Lu Xiao lying down.
Ye Cheng swallowed, and asked him without words, “Will I disturb you?”
“No.” Lu Xiao answered quickly.
The room was quiet for a moment.
Ye Cheng bit her lip and asked again, “How is your relative, do you want to **** him tomorrow?”
There was silence for a while, and he said, “It’s okay, I’m sick, I’ll go back to Jiulong with you tomorrow.”
“Oh, all right.”
Ye Cheng grabbed the corner of her wet clothes, cleared her throat and said, “You’re wearing wet clothes, aren’t you uncomfortable?”
Lu Xiao suddenly chuckled, “Are you afraid to sleep alone?”
“I don’t.” Ye Cheng immediately denied it.
Lu Xiao moved a little to the side, and patted the vacant spot, with a smile that could not be hidden in his voice.
“If you’re afraid, come here.”
Ye Cheng’s face suddenly turned red, and even though he knew that the other party couldn’t see it, there was still a sense of shame.
He, a person whose mental age is approaching three, has actually been reduced to being ridiculed by a high school student.
“Can’t come over?” Lu Xiao raised the corners of his lips, sure enough.
Ye Cheng gasped for breath, and finally lost to the psychological struggle. She got up from the bed and moved to his side.
The feeling of being close to people instantly dissipates that sense of space fear.
Ye Cheng’s pounding heart finally calmed down.
Lu Xiao’s arms were close to his, and he reached out and tugged at his cuffs: “You told me that you don’t wear wet clothes yourself.”
Ye Cheng’s eyes flickered: “Then I can’t run over naked.”
“I can’t open the door for you alone.”
The two were quiet again, and the topic was inexplicably uncomfortable.
Obviously they are two big men, but they are as shy as little girls.
Even knowing that the other party can’t see it at all.
Ye Cheng rested on the pillow and felt that the person beside him was watching him.
In the room where he couldn’t reach five fingers, he seemed to be able to feel those twinkling eyes.
“Lu Xiao, can you promise me one thing?” he suddenly said.
This sentence seemed a bit abrupt, but Lu Xiao was not surprised at all.
“Tell me, what’s the matter.” He adjusted his posture.
Ye Cheng said: “In the next year, no matter what happens, you have to stay at No. 13 Middle School and study hard, can you?”
Lu Xiao was stunned for a moment, then sneered: “Mr. monitor, have you committed an occupational disease?”
“It’s not an occupational disease, it’s just a hope for you.” Ye Cheng couldn’t see his face, but kept looking in that direction, his voice gradually softened, “Come and go to college with me, Lu Xiao.”
The light words were like a heavy hammer, slowly pressing down on Lu Xiao’s heart.
No one had ever said such a thing to him.
No, it should be said that among the people he knew, there had never been someone like Ye Cheng.
Inexplicably transferred from the best high school and appeared by his side.
Inexplicably, he changed from being unpleasant to his deskmate.
Inexplicably, while urging him to study, he came to Qingshan on a rainy night for him.
Too many inexplicable, summed up perhaps not inexplicable.
These words, not even his mother said.
Meng Li will only complain endlessly. Your dad took that **** on vacation again. Sooner or later, I will kill them.
Even a word, never cared about his study and life.
“Go to college with me”, something Chen Zhen didn’t even mention.
Because no one seems to think he can get into college, thank goodness for having a high school.
And someone like Ye Cheng, who is always the first in the grade, actually said that he would go to college with him.
In the short ten years of Lu Xiao’s life, he has always been self-centered.
He is a little bully, arrogant and unreasonable, and everyone is afraid of him.
But he has never had a moment of sudden inferiority like this.
In his eyes, Ye Cheng is not from the same world as him at all.
He is so good, so dazzling, and in front of him is a bright future that is completely different from him.
“Hey, why don’t you talk?” Ye Cheng saw that he didn’t answer for a long time, and stabbed him with his elbow.
Lu Xiao’s expression changed, then returned to normal, and asked casually, “Which university do you want to go to?”
“My ideal is Peking University,” Ye Cheng said. “But don’t have any burdens. I don’t want you to take the Peking University entrance exam. You can go to the school you like.”
Lu Xiao didn’t have any favorite schools. He couldn’t even recognize the names of other schools except Qingbei University and Nandu University.
“Got it.” He nodded silently.
Ye Cheng’s eyes curled up: “So you agreed?”
“Then pull the hook.”
Ye Cheng got up and propped his arms on the bed: “You guys are tall… Don’t your basketball teams like to give high fives, then let’s take a hook as an agreement.”
He almost accidentally slipped his lips, high school kids should all like this “sense of ritual”.
Lu Xiao almost wanted to roll his eyes, but he was still dragged up by him.
“The hook is hanged, and it cannot be changed for a hundred years.”
Ye Cheng hooked his little finger and tugged it childishly, then put her thumbs together and stamped a seal.
He smiled, feeling very satisfied.
“Once you seal it, you can’t go back on it.”
“We must go to college together.”
Ye Cheng lay down slowly, and his voice gradually became smaller.
He was so sleepy that he couldn’t open his eyes, and it was because of fear and anxiety that he had survived until now.
At this time, there was a concern, and the sleepy bug naturally came up.
There was a distance of ten centimeters between Lu Xiao and him, and through the dim light outside the window, he could vaguely see the outline of him lying on his side.
From the shoulders to the waistline, it is like the darling of God.
When Ye Cheng sleeps, she likes to curl herself up and put her left arm on her right arm in a protective posture.
This is a relatively insecure sleeping position.
Lu Xiao was in a trance and felt as if he had seen such a scene before, Ye Cheng fell asleep peacefully beside him, as if this was a matter of course.
He was absurd by his own feelings.
It’s as it should be, this is obviously the first time they’ve been lying on the same bed.
Lu Xiao shook his head and closed his eyes.
But that kind of peace of mind could not deceive anyone, and as the breathing next to him gradually stabilized, he also fell asleep.
The next morning, Ye Cheng was awakened by thirst.
He opened his dry eyes, feeling like a ball of cotton stuffed in his throat.
It rained yesterday and I still got a cold.
There was no one around, and there was a faint warmth on the sheets.
Ye Cheng got up and went to wash up. As soon as he came out of the bathroom, Lu Xiao came in with his breakfast.
“There aren’t any stores nearby, just make do with it, and then go back and eat something else.” Lu Xiao threw the buns to him.
It was still raining lightly outside, and the tips of his hair were soaked with water vapor.
Ye Cheng sniffed, his cheeks flushed abnormally.
“You have a fever?” Lu Xiao noticed that he was abnormal, and probed his forehead, it was indeed a little hot.
Ye Cheng drank the soy milk and said sullenly, “It’s fine, just take some medicine.”
He had a fever as soon as he was exposed to the rain when he was a child. He thought he would be better after drinking **** soup, but he was hit by wearing wet clothes all night.
“You wait here, I’ll go buy medicine.” Lu Xiao frowned.
Ye Cheng was afraid of trouble: “Go back and buy again, you will be late for class.”
“Wait.” Lu Xiao stopped talking nonsense with him and turned to go out.
Ye Cheng had to wait in the room for him to come back. After 20 minutes, he took the medicine and went to check out.
Lu Xiao didn’t tell him to get up early, it was already past nine o’clock when he got up. After some dawdling, after school, the morning class was over.
As soon as they entered the class, Jiang Jin shouted, “Brother Orange, where have you been? Hua Wangchun even asked if he didn’t come all morning.”
Ye Cheng’s voice had a thick nasal tone, and said listlessly: “Is he in the office now, I’ll make a fake note.”
“Yes, Yu Kun went to him just now.” Jiang Jin looked at him, “Why did you catch a cold?”
He looked at Lu Xiao again, the hidden culprit was refreshed, and there was no sign of illness.
“Why so many questions?” The culprit glanced at him ill-naturedly, and Jiang Jin shut his mouth wisely.
Ye Cheng came out of the classroom and went directly to the teaching office.
There was a person sitting in the teaching office, who seemed to be the parent of the student, talking to Hua Wangchun.
“Report.” Ye Cheng knocked on the door.
The figure with its back to him turned.
Ye Cheng paused, stunned in place.
After a long time, he muttered, “Dad, why are you here?”
