Lu Xiao deliberately restrained him and said, “Just hug.”
Ye Cheng struggled red-faced, but when he bent his knees, he accidentally touched a familiar spot.
——It is a part that men understand.
He just wanted to change his posture and break free from the warm embrace.
The air here was too thin, making it difficult for him to even breathe, but when his knees touched there, he was stunned.
Through the thin fabric, you can feel the amazing temperature.
Lu Xiao didn’t expect that he would kick his legs, and he froze in place stiffly.
In an instant, both of them fell silent.
There was silence in the tent.
dong dong dong, dong dong dong,
I don’t know whose heart is chaotic, like a tumultuous drum beat, about to open the tent.
Lu Xiao turned back and forth in his head, thinking of 10,000 excuses to make up for it.
“I…” His voice was hoarse, but he got stuck as soon as he said one word.
If it’s between brothers, just say “Do you want to watch the movie?” and take it away.
But he knew better than anyone that he didn’t regard Ye Cheng as a brother, so he couldn’t say a lie.
His breathing gradually increased, and he couldn’t find any clue of explanation.
The person in his arms stared blankly, his cheeks flushed, and he didn’t know if it was baked by the electric blanket or for other reasons.
Lu Xiao suddenly thought about it, maybe he wasn’t very resistant?
He couldn’t help reaching out his hand, wanting to touch Ye Cheng’s face.
Just when Lu Xiao stretched out his hand, Ye Cheng seemed to have woken up suddenly, and subconsciously shrank back.
This bed is a single bed, two people squeezed together. He didn’t have enough space to retreat, he just shrank a few centimeters, but he stopped Lu Xiao’s hand.
Because the distance is too close, his every move is infinitely magnified.
This retreat made Lu Xiao’s heart sink suddenly.
When he likes someone, his every little reaction is like a sign of a landslide.
Ye Cheng’s breathing, Ye Cheng’s expression, Ye Cheng’s movements, many of his unconscious behaviors.
These all represent his attitude towards the relationship between the two.
The light in Lu Xiao’s eyes dimmed little by little, and finally disappeared.
He felt he understood.
A lot of words don’t need to be said, they understand naturally.
He let go of Ye Cheng in a slump, got up from the bed and said, “You sleep here, I’ll go over there.”
Ye Cheng sat up in a panic: “No, don’t…”
Before he could finish his words, Lu Xiao was already on his bed.
He dug into the sleeping bag quickly, covered the top of his head with a quilt, turned his back to him and fell asleep.
A series of actions flowed smoothly.
It’s over, it looks like it’s messed up, Ye Cheng thought to himself.
He stared at Lu Xiao’s back with very complicated eyes.
How could it be easier than him, and it’s so embarrassing…
he thought wildly,
How are you going to face him tomorrow morning? Can you popularize the opinion that “it is normal for male high school students to indulge in hot and dry conditions”?
… It doesn’t seem to be impossible, as long as he doesn’t feel embarrassed.
Ye Cheng struggled for a while, and even picked up the phone and Baidu some words to relieve the mental and physical stress of teenagers.
After about ten minutes, my eyelids couldn’t hold it anymore.
He decided to have a good talk with Lu Xiao after getting up, put down the phone, closed his eyes and fell asleep.
Lu Xiao was not as lucky as him, and didn’t fall asleep until the middle of the night.
On the one hand, he hated why he was so uncontrollable, and on the other hand, the fragile glass heart shattered.
——Ye Cheng actually avoided his touch.
He knew very well what it meant to dodge.
In other words, Ye Cheng didn’t like him, and he might even be a little disgusted with his reaction. And the culprit of all this… He looked down at the place where it gradually disappeared.
Today is an example of failure. First, I overturned while cooking, and now I have no friends to do.
That’s right, he thought that Ye Cheng definitely didn’t want to be friends with him.
After all, who would want to associate with someone who covets him and doesn’t like him.
Thinking like this, he was even more sad.
I was so sad that my heart felt like it was being pricked by a needle.
So sad that his throat felt like a ball of cotton was stuffed.
He shrank himself into a ball and buried his face in the quilt that smelled of Yecheng.
Woohoo, he was hated.
The next morning, Ye Cheng was woken up by the alarm.
The electric blanket was so hot that he kicked the quilt in the middle of the night, and he didn’t know why it was covering him again.
The plug underneath was unplugged, but he didn’t want to get up because the bed was still warm.
“Lu Xiao, are you awake?” He yawned and asked softly.
No one responded.
“Lu Xiao?” He got up from the bed with difficulty, but saw that the bed opposite was empty.
There was a piece of paper on it, pressed with his ipad.
Ye Cheng woke up completely, put on a dress in a hurry, picked up the paper on the bed and looked at it.
This is a letter Lu Xiao wrote to him.
[I wanted to wait for you to get up and say goodbye, but I really didn’t have the courage. Well, I admit that there are times when I run away, especially after I know you hate me. I’m sorry that I thought about you inappropriately yesterday, and I’m sorry to make you feel disgusted. I apologize for this, but it may not change.
Thank you for the encouragement and comfort you have given me these days. The more I write, the more uncomfortable I feel.
Forget it, I’m afraid to see your face, I can’t even say a word. So I went back first, let myself calm down first, and think about how to get along with you in the future. If you think there is still a possibility between us, just contact me. If you think you can’t even make friends, then don’t see this letter. 】
Ye Cheng was confused, read the letter with three typos twice, and finally understood what he meant.
In the tent, Lu Xiao’s suitcase was gone.
He suddenly felt dumbfounded.
No, is there something wrong with this kid’s brain? When did he say he hated him?
Ye Cheng took out his mobile phone and called him, but the screen showed that the call failed, and the signal here is not very good.
He had to get dressed and walked outside the tent, ready to find a place with a good signal to make a call.
As soon as he came out, he met Hu Haiyang who was approaching.
“Ye Cheng, you came just in time, I was looking for you.” Hu Haiyang said to him, looking a little anxious.
Ye Cheng asked inexplicably, “What’s the matter, teacher?”
Hu Haiyang said, “Your grandma called you several times, but you didn’t answer. She has something important to do with you.”
Ye Cheng frowned: “Did she say something? The signal on my side is not very good, so I didn’t receive a call.”
Hu Haiyang said: “I didn’t say the specifics, she just asked you to call her back.”
In the woods not far from the tent.
Lu Xiao sat on the suitcase, wearing a hat and scarf, tightly wrapped.
The sun above his head gradually rose into the air, the surrounding snow melted a little, and the sound of partridges came from the woods.
His hands were red from the cold, and he put them in his pockets for a while, and then he couldn’t help but take out his phone and look at it again and again.
Until eleven o’clock in the morning, Ye Cheng didn’t call or send him a message.
Lu Xiao tapped the phone a few times in disbelief, is this **** broken?
It’s eleven o’clock, and he hasn’t woken up for no reason.
The phone vibrated suddenly, and he was so excited that he almost slipped his hand and dropped the phone into the snow.
Lu Xiao cleared his throat, made a practice sound of “Ahhhhh”, and said coldly “Hey, what are you doing”, then looked at the screen.
When he saw the caller ID, the smile on his face disappeared instantly.
Looking at the big word “scalper” above, he answered the phone irritably and put it to his ear.
He said gruffly, “Why?”
A male voice with a Yingcheng accent came from over there: “Boss, do you still want a ticket? Didn’t you say we’d meet at the station at ten o’clock?”
“No, tear it up.” Lu Xiao replied angrily, then hung up the phone with a snap.
Unable to bear, he stood up from the suitcase and kicked the pebble next to him.
Damn, you are so kind, Ye Cheng.
I ignored him all morning, but just relied on him not to really leave.
Lu Xiao’s whole body was about to explode, and he circled the box twice like a defeated rooster.
Finally, I picked up my suitcase and walked back.
Fuck, fuck, fuck, why are you so spineless!
As he secretly spurned himself, he returned to the camp dejectedly.
The morning class is over by now, and everyone is preparing their own lunch.
Lu Xiao stood outside the tent door pushing the suitcase, thinking about how to face him later.
– Putting the box in ruthlessly and asking him why didn’t you call me?
But if Ye Cheng really annoyed him, it would seem even more disgusting to do so.
No, it can’t be.
– Pretend nothing happened and say hello as usual?
Ye Cheng must have hated him even more after he left a letter of severance.
No no no.
——Sobbing until the pear blossoms came in like rain, then bit his lip and said that he was wrong, shouldn’t he be petty?
…this seems to work! Isn’t Ye Cheng just eating this set, he won’t be able to do anything if others are soft.
Lu Xiao acted immediately, pinching the flesh of his thigh so hard that his eyes turned red.
He began to fantasize about something desperate, hastening the burst of tears.
For example, Ye Cheng told him to get out, for example, Ye Cheng hugged and kissed his ex.
After thinking about it, I got into the play.
Lu Xiao choked up like something, only thunder but no rain, not even a drop of tears, and then opened the tent with confidence.
He looked down at the toe of the shoe, expecting Ye Cheng to say “Yo, you still know how to come back”.
Then, he can look up in aggrieved.
One second, two seconds…
After waiting for half a minute, I didn’t hear any movement.
Lu Xiao raised his head suspiciously, and was completely dumbfounded when he saw the empty tent.
All Ye Cheng’s belongings were taken away, and it was cleaner than what he had cleaned.
At this time, Hu Haiyang walked over from the side.
“Lu Xiao, why didn’t you come to class this morning? I’ve been looking for you for a long time.” He asked seriously.
Lu Xiao didn’t recover for a while, thinking that Ye Cheng was chasing after him.
“Teacher, it’s too late to explain, I have to chase Ye Cheng back first.” He said succinctly, putting down his luggage and preparing to rush to the station.
Hu Haiyang stopped him and said, “Someone has something to do at home, why are you going to join in the fun?”
“Ah?” Lu Xiao turned to look at him.
Hu Haiyang said: “His family called him to go back. It’s none of your business. You give me a good class.”
Lu Xiao: “…what is it?”
Ye Cheng sat in the car and tried to continue calling Lu Xiao.
But still can’t get through, maybe the signal on his side is not good.
He told Hu Haiyang about getting Lu Xiao back, and Hu Haiyang agreed immediately.
Let’s wait until we meet to explain this matter.
Gao Qiulan’s phone call came again, asking him if he was in the car.
Ye Cheng reassured her and told her that she had bought a high-speed rail ticket to Shengzhou.
Gao Qiulan was in a panic on the phone, talking in reverse, and only asked him to take a leave to go to Shengzhou.
It sounded like Ye Qiaoqiao was seriously ill, Qu Tian went to Milan, and only Ye Gaoyang was there.
Originally, Ye Cheng didn’t want to go, so he didn’t care what happened to the two of them.
But considering that Gao Qiulan was still there, it would be bad if something happened to him, so he bought a ticket to go back.
After being bumpy for a few hours, Ye Cheng changed to the high-speed rail from Nandu.
The signal on the high-speed train was intermittent, and during this period, I received a WeChat message from Lu Xiao, asking him what happened at home.
Ye Cheng replied to him: [I don’t know what it is, I have to go to Shengzhou. 】
There was silence for a moment, then replied: [Be careful. 】
Ye Cheng asked him: [Are you still unhappy? 】
Suspect X: [Not unhappy, I went back to the tent early in the morning. 】
Restrain: [You went back by yourself? 】
Suspect X: [Then do you still want to break up with me? 】
Ye Cheng wondered when I was going to break up with you.
But I still returned to him: […I have not broken up with friends. Since you are staying there, study hard. 】
“Typed” was displayed on the chat box for a minute.
Suspect X: [Okay. 】
Ye Cheng shook his head helplessly, not knowing whether to say that he was coaxing, or that his brain was lacking.
Both of them kept silent about what happened last night, and tacitly wanted to expose this page.
After some reversing, when Ye Cheng arrived in Shengzhou, it was already six o’clock in the evening.
He took a break from time to time, took a taxi and went straight to Shengzhou No. 1 Hospital.
As soon as he arrived at the door of the hospital, he saw Gao Qiulan who was standing outside to pick him up.
Ye Cheng pushed the suitcase over, and Gao Qiulan immediately greeted him.
She looked tired, as if she hadn’t aged much in a few days.
Ye Cheng immediately frowned and supported her: “What happened?”
“Xiaocheng, you are finally here.” Gao Qiulan didn’t say anything, but stepped forward and hugged him.
Since Ye Cheng grew up, she seldom acted like this, unless she was in a very bad mood.
Ye Cheng was really startled, and hugged her and said, “What’s the matter, don’t scare me. Is it Ye Qiaoqiao’s illness, or is my dad’s body a problem?”
As soon as Gao Qiulan leaned against him, her eyes became wet.
Ye Cheng patted her on the back: “It’s okay, grandma, tell me something.”
Gao Qiulan sobbed for a while before gradually calming down.
“Let’s find a place to sit first, it’s too cold here.” Ye Cheng said while holding her cold hand.
They found a milk tea shop in front of the hospital, and Ye Cheng ordered a cup of hot milk for her.
After Gao Qiulan drank some milk, her emotions slowly stabilized.
She said with red eyes: “Xiaocheng, your father is afraid that he will not be able to hold it anymore.”
With a buzzing sound in Ye Cheng’s head, he asked subconsciously, “Is he sick?”
Strangely, he remembered that Ye Gaoyang was in good health. He was a workaholic and accompanied Qu Tian and Ye Qiaoqiao when he had time, but he just didn’t have time to pay attention to his son.
Gao Qiulan shook her head and said, “It’s not him, it’s Ye Qiaoqiao. She went to the hospital with a high fever a few days ago and was found to have leukemia.”
“Leukemia?” Ye Cheng asked in surprise.
In his last life, he had never heard that Ye Qiaoqiao had leukemia, which was too sudden.
Gao Qiulan’s face was sad: “Then your father went to check the bone marrow matching, but something went wrong, and later found out… Qiaoqiao is not his daughter.”
Ye Cheng was shocked one after another: “What?”
“I don’t understand what they say about blood types. I only know that the doctor said that they are probably not biological fathers and daughters.” Gao Qiulan said.
Ye Cheng: “…”
Ye Qiaoqiao was Ye Gaoyang’s child who had an affair in his early years. Because of this, Gao Qiulan could never accept her.
Now I didn’t expect that it was not only an affair, but also a green hat…
The two were silent for a long time, and neither of them spoke.
In the end, it was Ye Cheng who broke the silence: “Then how is he now? What about Qu Tian, has he returned to China?”
Gao Qiulan wiped the corners of her eyes and said, “No, your dad is in the hospital for an IV. He said that he would expose this matter, and then went to Milan to find Qu Tian. Qu Tian didn’t answer the phone and didn’t answer the news, I guess he knew. The filth he did was discovered.”
“But that’s her daughter.” Ye Cheng couldn’t understand.
In his impression, even though Qu Tian had nothing to say to him, he was still very fond of Ye Qiaoqiao.
When he went to make up lessons for her in junior high school, Qu Tian responded to her requests and gave her whatever she wanted.
This also made Ye Qiaoqiao develop a lot of bad habits, in other words, a little princess disease.
Gao Qiulan spat and said, “That woman is really vicious. She has lied to Gao Yang for so many years, and she can still be expected to have childish hearts.”
“Now Qiaoqiao is in the hospital for treatment, and your dad is so angry that his body is hurt. I really can’t take care of it alone, so I called you back.” She said helplessly.
Ye Cheng touched her back: “If you told me earlier, I came back yesterday.”
Gao Qiulan suddenly covered her face and cried, “Xiaocheng, these people really owe you too much, you don’t need to come at all.”
Ye Cheng knew that she loved herself from the bottom of her heart, and everything was considered from his perspective.
He embraced Gao Qiulan and comforted her in a low voice.
There was a subtle feeling in his heart, and he didn’t know if it was his illusion.
In the past life, it was obvious that none of these had happened, Ye Qiaoqiao had never had leukemia, and Ye Gaoyang had been kept in the dark.
Could it be that these dirty things will come to the surface after being reborn again?
After coming out of the milk tea shop, the two went directly to the ward.
Ye Cheng temporarily left the suitcase at the front desk, and followed Gao Qiulan to push the door and walked in.
Ye Qiaoqiao lives in a single ward and is eating potato chips and watching cartoons.
Seeing them come in, his eyes fell on Ye Cheng, and he immediately lit up.
“Brother!” She called out loudly.
In fact, if you look closely, you can indeed find that Ye Qiaoqiao does not look like Ye Gaoyang.
She does not have the cold temperament passed down by the old Ye family, nor does she have the sharp and small chin.
She has a round head and a round brain all over her, with a cut flower head, single eyelid and a high nose bridge. She is neither good-looking nor ugly.
Ye Cheng didn’t even think she looked like Qu Tian, but he didn’t know if Qu Tian had plastic surgery.
The child looked strong and strong, and it was difficult to associate her with a major disease such as leukemia.
Ye Qiaoqiao was four years younger than him, and in her heart she always felt that Ye Cheng was a god.
The kind of **** who is cold and beautiful, with good grades, is said to be the envy of all the girls in their class.
It’s a pity that Ye Cheng has always been cold to her, she can only show off her brother behind her back.
Ye Qiaoqiao jumped up and wanted to jump off the bed: “Brother, come to see me!”
The child does not know what a terminal illness is, and being hospitalized will not affect her happiness at all.
Ye Cheng lowered his face: “Don’t come down.”
Ye Qiaoqiao was a little afraid of him, so he didn’t dare to move when he said don’t move, and stayed on the bed obediently, blinking at them.
“Sure enough, it’s still up to your brother to cure you,” Gao Qiulan shook her head and said, “Xiaocheng, you don’t know how hard it is for her to eat a meal.”
Ye Cheng has always ignored her, but seeing her eyes now makes her feel a little pitiful.
Ye Gaoyang is a man who attaches great importance to blood, and Ye Qiaoqiao is like a thorn, always reminding him of his humiliating past.
In this life, Ye Gaoyang would never be nice to her again.
Qu Tian abandoned her again and refused to return to China. It is estimated that he doesn’t even want her anymore.
Ye Cheng looked at the rice bowl next to him and asked, “Why don’t you eat?”
“I have no appetite, I want to eat potato chips.” Ye Qiaoqiao said with a pouted mouth.
Ye Cheng picked up the bowl and chopsticks and said, “You can only eat potato chips after eating, otherwise don’t eat them at all.”
Ye Qiaoqiao’s eyes moved between him and Gao Qiulan, and finally picked up the chopsticks.
Gao Qiulan finally breathed a sigh of relief and asked him, “Have you eaten, and if you haven’t, let’s eat together. The food in the hospital is not delicious, so let’s take it first, and grandma will make something else for you tomorrow.”
Ye Cheng nodded and sat down to eat with them.
Because he was here, Ye Qiaoqiao was so happy that she even ate half a bowl of rice.
After coaxing her to sleep, Ye Cheng asked Gao Qiulan to take him to Ye Gaoyang’s ward.
Gao Qiulan stood at the door and said, “Xiaocheng, if he talks nonsense, just ignore him. The doctor said that he can’t be stimulated recently.”
Ye Cheng signaled her to be relieved, pushed the door and walked into the ward.
In the room, Ye Gaoyang was lying on the hospital bed with his eyes closed, his face as pale as an incorrupt corpse just dug out of an ancient tomb.
The eye sockets are sunken, the cheekbones are flushed, and the lips are chapped.
“Dad.” Ye Cheng walked up to him and called out calmly.
Ye Gaoyang opened his eyes and looked at him slowly.
When he spoke, his voice was hoarse as if someone had thrown a handful of sand down his throat, “Little Orange, here you are.”
Ye Cheng felt that his appearance was about to die, and looked extremely ironic.
“Is it worth doing this for a woman?” He sneered.
Ye Gaoyang’s breathing became rapid.
He clearly promised Gao Qiulan not to irritate him, but he couldn’t help but want to say this.
Ye Gaoyang coughed a few times, pursed his lips and said nothing.
Ye Cheng couldn’t help pretending to be dead, and asked him, “Do you really plan to contact the media to expose her? Her public relations team is one of the best in the country, so you’re not afraid that she will bite back and kill you in turn?”
He said a few short sentences, but they hit the spot.
Ye Gaoyang’s cough became worse, and he was obviously not very angry.
Ye Cheng said coldly: “If you can get a divorce, you can get a divorce. If you want to save her through public opinion, that is shooting yourself in the foot.”
Ye Gaoyang looked even more bleak when he was talking about the central matter.
“I can’t blame others even today. It’s all my fault. I haven’t seen her true face for so many years.” He sighed.
Ye Cheng was silent for a moment, then said, “I don’t care about the two of you, I just want to know, what are you going to do with Ye Qiaoqiao?”
He has been thinking about it for a long time.
Ye Gaoyang’s face became contorted, his voice trembling with anger.
“I hired the best nurse, and your grandmother said she would help take care of her. I will treat her illness, but I don’t want to see her again.”
Ye Cheng suddenly laughed, and Ye Gaoyang looked up at him in surprise.
“Dad, you really—” he stretched his voice and said softly, “deserved today.”
Ye Gaoyang’s eyes widened suddenly, as if he couldn’t believe he would say such a thing.
Ye Cheng said: “You have lost your daughter for more than ten years, and I have waited for you for more than ten years. In fact, in your heart, there is no difference. If you want to throw it away, you throw it away, and if you want to pick it up, you pick it up. Rubbish.”
“But you don’t think that one day, trash can choose not to have you.” The most indifferent words were spit out from the beautiful lips.
Ye Gaoyang thought that money could solve everything. He used to throw money at him, but now he throws money at Ye Qiaoqiao. As everyone knows, he doesn’t know what emotion is at all.
“Dad, I hope you don’t have a moment of regret when you die alone.”
After Ye Cheng said the last sentence, she turned around and went out with her pocket in her pocket.
As the door of the ward slowly closed, there was a faint roar of pain and the sound of things falling to pieces.
He didn’t look back, and went straight back to Ye Qiaoqiao’s ward.
This area is a single ward, and the corridor is silent.
Ye Qiaoqiao was hiding under the quilt to read the comics, and when she heard the sound of pushing the door, she quickly hid the comics.
Gao Qiulan was sitting on the reclining chair waiting for him, already dozing off, her head was going up and down.
Ye Cheng casually lifted her quilt and said mercilessly, “Stop pretending.”
Ye Qiaoqiao let out a scream and hurriedly snatched the quilt back.
He looked down at her and said, “Girl, you don’t want anyone anymore.”
