After the psychiatrist left, two special forces soldiers came and took Gu Hai to a small auditorium where a “special welcome performance” is waiting for him. Truth be told, it wasn’t really a welcome performance, but more of a masturbation show, as Gu Hai was the only man inside the spacious auditorium.
All the performers were gorgeous women who had large breasts and equally large butts. One after another, they emerged on stage to entertain Gu Hai, either through dance or song numbers. This outrageous scene was exactly like that of a crown prince choosing a concubine.
It does not take much for Gu Hai to realize that his father really spent a lot of money this time. He doesn’t even know how his father had managed to find all these female performers in such a small span of time. Every type was there and every kind of show was available. Each of the performers were dressed in such a way that they show off the beauty of their bodies, and many of them were there to give terribly explicit and vulgar performances. Every one of them was there only for Gu Hai.
Suppose if he was replaced with a group of perverse privates, it is certain that not a single one of these women would be able to get out of the auditorium unharmed.
Gu Hai kept his head low all throughout the show. Yes, he would occasionally lift it, but his eyes would always remain closed. Honestly, it wasn’t that he had no desire to watch. It was just, he wasn’t in the mood to be here at all. He would rather be beside Bai Luo Yin.
When the sponsor of the program noticed that young master Gu was showing absolutely no interest at the performances, he reprimanded the female performers. “Just what kind of food did you eat? There’s so many of you here, yet not a single one can arouse the interest of one man! I told you to increase the range of your movements, didn’t I? I told you to express yourself more emotionally! Looking at every one of you with such lifeless expressions. There’s not even an ounce of stage presence in any of your performances. Let’s not even talk about him, even I wanted to sleep while watching you!”
“Just how big do you want our movements to be?”
The female performers started to protest in succession due to the unfair treatment that they were being given.
“The dance we performed is ballet. Regardless if we go back and forth, the choreography is still the same and is comprised only of a few steps. Besides, the arrangement is already bold as it is. Any more changes and it will be completely inappropriate!”
“Stop quarrelling!” The sponsor’s face darkened, “What is the next performance?” He shouted.
Someone answered from behind the curtain, “Female solo vocal.”
“Skip it. Go straight to pole dancing.”
Gu Hai actually opened his eyes and watched this performance. However, since the dancers’ movements were not at par to his usual standards, it only took him a couple of minutes before his mind started to wander again. For him, the only thing worth looking at was actually the pole, which stood in the middle of the stage.
The performances which followed were all carried out by a group of crazy women who did nothing but sway and move wildly around on stage. It can be said that it was their attempt at a sexy dance. These “performances” were accompanied by both fast beat and sensual songs.
Since Gu Hai was seated at the first row, he was able to see each of the performer’s big, round breasts. They glimmered under the lights and demanded for his attention, the moment he opened his eyes.
Deep in his heart, he truly wanted to laugh.
Has Gu Wei Ting gone insane? Rather than this extravagant and wasteful show, wouldn’t it have been better if he just sent me some DVDs I can watch in my room? Isn’t it far more simple and efficient?
Back in his room, Gu Hai had just finished taking a shower. He laid on the bed and started fiddling with his cell phone. Fortunately, Gu Wei Ting did not confiscate this communication device.
“Yin Zi…” Gu Hai’s soft and sensual voice went through.
The person on the other side kept quiet for a while. He then made a whining sound.
“What are you doing?” Gu Hai asked.
“Waiting.” Bai Luo Yin said, rather grumpily.
Listening to Bai Luo Yin’s voice, Gu Hai could immediately imagine how his little face was filled with exasperation but also tenderness right at that very moment.
“Are you still angry with me?” Gu Hai asked gently.
Bai Luo Yin nonchalantly replied, “Why would I be angry with you?”
“Not angry, huh? If you’re not angry, then why don’t we chat for awhile?” said Gu Hai. Happiness evident in his voice.
“You really know how to redeem yourself quickly, eh?!”
Gu Hai burst into a loud, hearty laugh, “So, you want to hear me call you ‘wife’ huh?”
Bai Luo Yin was actually standing beside the window while he was talking to Gu Hai. So, he could clearly hear the other person’s laughter along with the midnight wind. He simply couldn’t keep the corners of his lips from curving into a smile when he heard that familiar laugh.
“Have you treated your wounds yet?”
Gu Hai’s voice changed into one drenched with misery. “Where would I find the medicine to treat my wounds? You’re lucky you have someone to worry about you. I don’t have that.”
Bai Luo Yin rolled his eyes and snorted coldly, “Then just go and die!”
“You really want me to die?”
Bai Luo Yin was speechless. He intentionally changed the topic.
“You were gone for a long time just now. What have you been doing?”
Gu Hai continued to be playful, “Are you persecuting me for not calling you earlier?”
“Well, a little bit.” Bai Luo Yin finally admitted his feelings.
A quick rush of happiness consumed Gu Hai’s mind upon hearing those words. For a moment, he was unable to think of anything to say to properly express how he feels. He just kept on smiling and thinking about the expression that played out on Bai Luo Yin’s face as he spoke.
It was only after a long while that he was able to compose a proper sentence, “I just watched a show that my father arranged.”
“Show? What kind of show?”
“Hehe…In order to bring back my interest towards women, my father specifically invited a group of female performers to entertain me. Each one of them has a pair of large breasts that bounced in front of my eyes. You didn’t see it, but the way those butts were swinging around, it won’t surprise me if they ended up on top of my penis. It was really a top notch show and I would’ve really…but the thing is, you’re here…that is, if you weren’t mine, I would’ve already…”
Gu Hai had yet to finish his sentence when Bai Luo Yin hung up.
I see, someone’s jealous….The corners of Gu Hai’s mouth drew back into a smirk.
Bai Luo Yin stood near the window and lit a cigarette. His dashing eyebrows curved into a frown as he secretly thought to himself.
“Just how awesome would it be if this paved path did not exist between us? Without this obstruction, I’d definitely jump in through his window and give his ass a good round of beating!
Unable to fall asleep, Gu Hai got up from the bed in the middle of the night and walked towards the door. He pushed it open and saw that the guards have changed. He thought that these must be the night shift team.
“Bro, come in and sleep for awhile.” Gu Hai enthusiastically said as he patted one of them on the shoulder. The said person slowly turned his head towards Gu Hai, and as he did so, his neck produced a rattling sound. He obviously has a stiff neck.
“Thanks, but I’m not tired.” After saying that, he turned his head back to its original position, producing another burst of rattling.
What a great dedication you have towards your work! Gu Hai told himself after returning to his room. He hit the door with a loud bang.
Gu Hai walked towards the window and gazed out into the distance. He couldn’t see anything except for the deserted training ground. Because his and Bai Luo Yin’s rooms sat side by side, their doors and windows faced the same direction. This makes it impossible for them to see each other.
At this very moment, Gu Hai truly wished that he was that sentry on guard duty who was standing in the middle of the cold night. Even though he won’t be able to move, at least he would be able to gaze at Bai Luo Yin through his windows–even if it was from a distance.
One week, Gu Hai thought. He couldn’t possibly sit still and stay resigned to this fate while he waits for his death like this.
After dinner, the special forces soldier guarding Gu Hai changed as usual. Immediately after taking their post though, the two officers on night shift saw three privates walking towards them.
“What are you doing? This is a restricted area. You may not enter without any permission,” says one of the special forces soldier.
One of the privates–one who has a round face–spoke, “Young Master Gu told us to come.”
“He told you to come here? Why would he do that?”
“Young Master Gu said that he is bored to death. So, he wants us to accompany him and play mahjong.”
Just as the private finished speaking, the door opened. Gu Hai’s grave and stern face–the one which sent chills down the spine of even senior officials–poked out of it and appeared into the two special forces soldiers’ line of sight.
“I told them to come over…..”
The two guards were just about to retort when Gu Hai raised his chin, daring them to continue speaking. At once, the three privates proudly entered into the room. Anyone who knows Gu Hai personally, is well aware that he is one of the friendliest and most approachable people when he is in a good mood. But, when he is in a bad mood, a single glance from him is enough to frighten you to death. It was this trait that allowed him to fully inherit his father’s commanding nature.
Truth be told, the two special forces troops had every intention to stop Gu Hai. However, they quickly abandoned this idea the moment they saw his eyes. In any case, the General did not give any order to stop people from going inside Gu Hai’s room, except for Bai Luo Yin.
“It’s better to not offend him as much as possible!” thought the two soldiers.
Inside Gu Hai’s room…
“What? You want us to dig a tunnel in the middle of this room?” asked one of the three privates.
Gu Hai nodded, “Yeah, is there any problem with that?”
“Digging a tunnel is not a problem. We’ve dug so many before. So there’s really no issue with that, especially if it’s just a small one. As long as you’re willing to take responsibility for it, then we can definitely do it. However, the problem is the amount of time needed to complete this task.”
“How long will it take to dig itl?” asked Gu Hai.
The three looked at each other with faces that were riddled with worry and doubt. The first looked at the second. The second looked at the third. The third then looked at the first.
The first private then began to speak. “If it’s just the three of us, I estimate that it will take about a month.”
“A month?” Gu Hai’s face turned green. “I won’t even be here after a month. What would I need a tunnel for then?”
One of the privates cautiously asked, “When do you want it done?”
“Within three days.”
“Three days?!” The three cried out together, “Then you’ll need one platoon.”
The following day, after the two special forces soldiers on night shift took their post, the pair saw a huge group of privates walking towards them. They were carrying huge bundles of packages on their backs.
“Everyone halt!” One of the special forces soldiers roared, “What are you all doing?”
The leader of the group replied in a loud voice, “Young Master Gu said that he is bored to death, so he wants to hold a party tonight and he wants us to accompany him. We will sleep here after we are done playing. We brought our beds with us.”
The two special forces soldier gave each other a meaningful look, then one of them opened his mouth and started to speak in a harsh tone, “Have you all asked permission from your superiors? Staying out all night is a serious act of misconduct! There’s so many of you leaving the dormitory without permission. It will take a miracle for the officer on night check to not catch you!”
“That won’t be a problem. We won’t get discovered since all of us are from different squads,” replied the leader.
The two special forces soldiers suddenly broke out into cold sweat. Young Master Gu really has the ability to summon so many people!
Gu Hai casually opened the door again and faced the two special forces soldiers. He stood on the side to let the group of privates in. All the while, he continued to stare down at the two guards with an expression that screams ‘you must not disobey me’.
For the next three nights Gu Hai’s room was filled with the sound of singing and dancing as he and the group he summoned put on a show of peace and happiness. The music they played was so loud that even Bai Luo Yin could hear it loud and clear from his room.
“Say, Young Master Gu never stops partying day and night. Doesn’t he ever get tired?” says one of the special forces soldiers.
“If you’re locked up for the whole day like he is, you will also go crazy. Never you mind. Just let him do as he pleases. As long as he doesn’t go outside, he can be as loud as he wants. Also, what he’s doing is better than him attempting suicide,” replies the other.
“Yeah, that’s true.” The special forces soldier who spoke first paused for a minute, then began to speak again. “Hey! Come to think of it, why do I always hear the sound a shovel hitting against something?”
“It’s probably some kind of special musical instrument.”
The group of privates who came to Gu Hai’s place started to depart in droves early morning the next day. They all carried bundles of soils on their backs with shovels stashed inside.
Bai Luo Yin has been hearing the noisy rumbles coming from Gu Hai’s room for the past three days. Time and again, he asked Gu Hai about it, but the latter never gave him any answer and would simply smile. It wasn’t until the fourth day of Gu Hai’s “partying” that that disturbing noise finally stopped.
When it disappeared, Bai Luo Yin, who was standing in the middle of the room, suddenly felt a bout of uneasiness in his heart. His mind started to create all kinds of scary scenarios involving Gu Hai. While those thoughts danced around in his head, he suddenly heard the distinct sound of a rat digging a hole coming from below his feet.
Even a good room like this has rats in it? he thought to himself.
What started out as a faint sound slowly grew louder and louder. And with every moment that passed, Bai Luo Yin’s heart is slowly overcome with doubt and suspicion. A few more moments passed and he started to hear a single voice. It was as if someone is speaking, exactly underneath him.
Has the rat succeeded?
Bai Luo Yin abruptly crossed the room with huge strides. Suddenly, a crack formed at the exact spot where he once stood. The crack grew bigger and bigger, until it turned into a hole.
Holding his breath, Bai Luo Yin awaited for whatever made that hole to emerge. Seconds later, a muddy hand stretched out from it.
Fuck! Bai Luo Yin shouted.
Another hand emerged and with one push, that energetic giant rat’s whole body reached the surface. He had successfully dug himself into Bai Luo Yin’s room.
Bai Luo Yin was so dumbfounded that his brain stopped working temporarily. He felt like he was inside a fairy tale.
“Yin Zi!” Gu Hai shouted happily as he rushed towards Bai Luo Yin, pulling him into a tight hug. The funky smell of mud assaulted Bai Luo Yin’s nostrils.
After releasing Bai Luo Yin, Gu Hai cheerfully motioned towards the hole and enthusiastically said, “Can you see it? This is our ‘tunnel of love’.”
All throughout this scenario, Bai Luo Yin remained motionless. He felt dazed and confused, and could not bring it upon himself to react to anything. A few more seconds passed, then Bai Luo Yin pushed Gu Hai away. An expression of towering rage painted itself across his face as he faced his muddy lover.
“Are you insane? Can you be a bit more rational?!!”
Gu Hai stared at Bai Luo Yin calmly. His demeanor then became serious and earnest.
“If I were to treat you rationally, it means that the intensity of my love for you will decrease. If that happens, are you willing to accept it?”
There will always be that particular day–that one day when our feelings will start to dull; the day when I mature and become composed, while you become wise and open-minded. The passing years will eventually wear away the sharp edges and corners of our emotions as we become more and more sensible. I will no longer make such a big fuss over a wound on your hand. At the same time, you will no longer tear your hair out or stamp your feet just because of something I said. But when that day truly comes, we will always have a little bit of something memorable to cherish, right? Otherwise, how can we support this relationship…this love, throughout our entire lifetime?
Grand and spectacular is good, average and ordinary is also fine. When the time comes, naturally, aren’t we supposed to enjoy it to the fullest?”
Are you Addicted?
