By the time Gu Wei Ting lay down, Gu Hai was already sleeping soundly and the lights in the room have long been turned off.

He stared at the darkness for a couple of minutes before his hand started creeping towards the switch. He couldn’t sleep so he wanted to turn the lights back on. His hand had reached the switch but then he decided not to press it. He looked at his son who was sleeping soundly beside him. They were merely inches apart. Seeing him in such a calm and relaxed manner, Gu Wei Ting can’t help but feel the urge to observe him closer.

Without another word, Gu Hai went straight to the bathroom and took a bath. He carefully washed all the mud off his body, and emerged livelier and more energetic than before. Upon stepping out of the bathroom, he saw Bai Lou Yin lying in the middle of the bed, wrapped tightly under the comforter.

The BRAINWASHING PROCESS BEGINS

After enduring some beatings, Gu Hai was exceptionally punctilious as he opened the corner of his swollen mouth to eat breakfast. Directly in front of him sat Gu Wei Ting, with his calm and unwavering eyes staring, practically drilling a hole into his face.

“You’re not planning on staring at me like this for the rest of my life, right?”

Gu Wei Ting coldly replied, “A lifetime won’t be possible. I won’t be able to live until the day you die. But, as long as I’m still alive, don’t even think that there’s any hope for you to regain your freedom back.”

Gu Hai stopped chewing and he stared at Gu Wei Ting with a dark and sinister gaze.

“Don’t force me to abandon my own family.”[1]

Those words did not seem to draw out any distressful emotion out of Gu Wei Ting. He simply stood up and tidied his clothes before he faced the mirror and insouciantly said, “If you can really kill me, I’d be proud of you.”

“Crazy old man….” Gu Hai mumbled to himself.

Gu Wei Ting’s hand halted around his collar before he shot Gu Hai a glance from the corner of his eye, “What did you just say?”

“I said……I’ll work hard!” said Gu Hai, waving his fist mischievously.

Then, he glowered madly in his own head.

Gu Wei Ting finished straightening out his clothes, put his shoes on, and said a few more word to Gu Hai before leaving, “I’m going away on a business trip for a week.”

Gu Hai’s eyes brightened up.

Noticing the obvious change in the other person, Gu Wei Ting urgently added a few more words, “I’ll send someone over to watch you.”

The brilliant light in Gu Hai’s eyes were mingled with a bit of anger and resentment, he retorted intrepidly, “Don’t I have to go to school at least? I can’t give up my studies because of this, right?”

“You don’t have to worry about that. I’ve already requested a good teacher for you two. With a renowned teacher, who has a 100% positive feedback rate, giving you lessons face to face, it’s a guarantee that you’ll be able to study well.”

The corner of Gu Hai’s bruised lips that had turned purple drew back, “Are you being tricked by an educational facility somewhere?”

“If he can trick me, then he can also trick you back into the right path.”

A contemptuous expression settled on Gu Hai’s face.

Before taking his leave, Gu Wei Ting added a few more words, “I don’t have much patience. I’ll only give you one week. After a week, I’ll come back to check your progress. If you’re still defiant and refuse to come to your senses, then we’ll have to think of some other methods to rid you of those thoughts.”

After speaking, his strong and vigorous footsteps gradually disappeared.

Gu Hai quickly stood, grabbed the ointment that he had hidden for the entire night, and went straight to the door as fast as he can.

“Young Master Gu, this way please!”

Two special forces soldiers, each carrying a rifle, made a respectful gesture for Gu Hai to see him off.

“Thanks.” Gu Hai maintained a calm demeanor, showing no signs of emotion.

Just as he was about to go out, two shadows suddenly flashed by with great speed, grabbed Gu Hai’s arms, and forced him in another direction. Naturally, Gu Hai cannot tolerate this kind of coercion. He immediately threw his hand out and fought back. A tenacious brawl broke out between the three.

Those two special forces soldier weren’t to be reckoned with. If they were personally handpicked by Gu Wei Ting, they must be the cream of the crop; elites amongst the others and more than enough to handle Gu Hai.

Before Gu Wei Ting left, he had also instructed them, not to care who he was. If he does not comply with his commands, then there is no need to hesitate in using force to bring him down. Nonetheless, the two were smart enough to know that they would not be able to bear the responsibility for causing him any injuries. Therefore, they can only attempt to subdue him. Although this process was more strenuous, however, it was safer and less risky.

The two were afraid of offending Gu Hai and incurring harm upon themselves. Therefore, the moment they handcuffed him, they made sure to give him a praise, “You’re worthy of being the General’s son! You’re really a giant among men!”[2]

Fuck, where did he find these two stupid bastards……Gu Hai cursed to himself.

In the end, the two special force soldiers escorted Gu Hai to a room. Bai Luo Yin was also there. The moment their eyes met, a sense of surprise also appeared. Gu Hai couldn’t help but to turn around and yell back, “Why didn’t you guys tell me earlier that you’re bringing me to see him?”

One of the soldier held his head high and staunchly replied, “You didn’t ask!”

“Fine, just go now.”

With synchronized steps, the two walked out.

“Wait a minute, unlock the handcuffs first.”

Seeing Gu Hai taken here with such force like a criminal, an insufferable pain rushed into Bai Luo Yin’s heart. Then he saw the injuries that danced on his body as well as the especially deep and big wound that sat next to his lifeless eyes.

He was really beaten after all.

The anxiety that consumed his mind and caused him to tremble with fear for the entire night, had indeed happened.

“You didn’t sleep well, right?” Gu Hai looked at Bai Luo Yin with his bruised face.

Bai Luo Yin moved his lips, yet even after a long while, nothing came out.

“Oh, that’s right.” Gu Hai took the ointment out of his pocket and gave it to Bai Luo Yin, “I wanted to give this to you last night but my dad found and almost confiscated it.”

Bai Luo Yin reached his hand out to take the ointment, lowered his head for a look, then asked: “Why are you giving me this ointment?”

“Wasn’t your hand hurt by the whip?”

Bai Luo Yin stared blankly before confusion rose on his brows. He had long forgotten about it already, yet Gu Hai unexpectedly remembered it.

“Look at you, getting all bruised up like that, and you’re still giving me the ointment?”

“Honesty, these aren’t  anything unusual. I don’t feel anything at all, they’re actually more like mosquito bites.” After saying that, he pulled Bai Luo Yin’s hand and look at it with an angry expression, “Fuck, it’s all bruised up!”

Once those words flew out, Bai Luo Yin felt that Gu Hai’s tone was like a knife, stabbing deeply into his stomach.

“Before you left, didn’t you promise me you’ll maintain a proper attitude and not get into any confrontation with you dad?”

“My attitude was pretty proper,” Gu Hai had on an expression full of grievance, “I told him I wanted to have a nice talk with him. He also agreed. At that time, I talked to him in a polite manner. But, he was too unreasonable. After talking for some time, he started to hit me.”

Bai Luo Yin narrowed his eyes slightly and asked tentatively, “Did you ask him about my condition?”

With difficulty, the corners of Gu Hai’s mouth pulled back into a bright smile “You’re the only one that understands me.”

Bai Luo Yin went silent, unable to say anything.

“Oh, that’s right. I was about to ask you, which room did Sun Jingwei placed you in? How’s the condition?”

“……”

“Did you sleep last night? Was the bed wide enough? Was the quilt warm enough?”

“Did Sun Jingwei say anything odd or tried to lecture you? Do he tell you what he was going to do with you?”

Gu Hai said so many things all at the same time. Bai Luo Yin did not respond to any of the questions. He just sat there with a gloomy face and refused to give Gu Hai a glance. From the start, Gu Hai was already riddled with anxiety. Since he had put so much effort into speaking, if he did not hear any response, one can only imagine the mood he was in.

“Why aren’t you talking?” Gu Hai patted Bai Luo Yin’s head with a bad mood.

Bai Luo Yin’s fierce gaze swept towards Gu Hai’s face, “Don’t bother me!”

Last night, Gu Wei Ting said a lot of harsh words to him, yet Gu Hai didn’t take it to his heart. But, just this one sentence from Bai Luo Yin, he fell into a world of pain.

“It wasn’t easy for the two of us to see each other yet you’re giving me this attitude. Aren’t you being too cruel?”

Bai Luo Yin silently replied in his heart.

No one is as cruel as you. Just look at what’s been done already! It’s really fucking……you’ve done exactly everything that I was afraid of![2]

Even when the teacher arrived, Gu Hai was still unable to speak a single word with Bai Luo Yin.

This teacher is also an officer in the army, who has a graduate degree. He had experiences in tutoring some soldiers before, all of which were done voluntarily. This was the first time he was asked to teach in such a methodical manner. Nevertheless, he was still in front of the General’s son, so it was inevitable that he felt a bit nervous.

“Let me introduce myself first. My name is Zhang Hua, male, 26 years old and a graduate from Beihang University.”[4] 

Two frozen and expressionless face stared at him.

“Well, I’m very happy to teach you here. My knowledge may be limited, but if something is unclear, you can tell me anytime.”

*Cough cough* ”……there is no need for you to call me Mr. Zhang. Just call me Xiao Zhang will do. Everyone calls me that.”

“Okay then, let’s just start the lesson.”

While the teacher was busy talking to himself in the front, the two were each lost in their own thoughts. It was all too obvious that not a single word entered their brains since neither was actually listening.

Gu Hai doesn’t understand, why did Bai Luo Yin suddenly became angry?

Does he not like it that I brought him here with me? Does he feel wronged? Does he regret it now? Does he want to go out? Or did I say something that angered him……

Bai Luo Yin couldn’t help but to cast Gu Hai a glance from the corner of his eye. He found him with a seemingly worried frown on his face, thinking of something that he could hardly guess. With just one look at him, Bai Luo Yin could not bear to look again. He felt that Gu Hai was unusually pitiful, just like a small kid who collected scraps, the more he looked, the more agonizing he felt at the pain that gripped his heart.

At a little before noon, lunch was arranged in their respective rooms. Someone especially delivered the foods to them.

During the afternoon, they continued to attend their lessons. Once it was over, Gu Hai finally saw where Bai Luo Yin was staying the moment they were each escorted to their own room.

After much quarreling about nothing for half a day, it turns out, he was staying at Sun Jingwei’s room, just one path away from Gu Hai.

Although it was only one path away, Gu Hai was not allowed to pass through. He had no other choice but to look over there with impatience and anxiety sinking into his bones.

After he ate dinner, someone knocked on the door.

Gu Hai walked over to open the door and saw an unfamiliar face, wearing a white coat and glasses. The typical image of a doctor.

“Did you go to the wrong room?”

“Are you not Comrade Gu Hai?”

It goes without saying, this must be another one of Gu Wei Ting’s stupid idea to attack him.

“I’m a comrade[5], but I’m not Gu Hai.”

The doctor smiled politely, “Then, you must be him. I specialized in treating that ‘kind of sickness’.[6] My name is Wang Xiao Man. I’m a psychiatrist.”

Just as Gu Hai was about to close the door, the female doctor suddenly went inside. She must have received training since her movements were as fast as lightning.

“……Do you usually just go inside your patient’s room like this?” Gu Hai’s face darkened.

A rather professional smile appeared on the doctor’s face, “Let’s get to the main subject.”

“Sit down.” Gu Hai raised his chin.

The doctor was somewhat overwhelmed by this unexpected kindness.

“You came at just the right time. There’s something troubling my mind, see if you can help me get rid of it.”

“There’s no harm in saying what you’re thinking.”

Gu Hai furrowed his eyebrows and asked, “Tell me, why is he ignoring me?”

“Excuse me, but who’s this ‘he’ that you’re referring to?”

“Aren’t you a psychiatrist? You should be able to tell everything that’s on my mind. Is it necessary for me to say it openly?”

The doctor was somewhat embarrassed, “Then, I’ll try to analyze it for a moment.”

Gu Hai nodded his head.

“I think the reason he’s ignoring you is probably because you don’t listen to him.”

“I don’t listen to him?” Bewilderment crawled on Gu Hai’s face, “How did I not listen to him?”

“Just think about it. In his lifetime of experience, a large part of it is taking orders or giving orders. Each person’s method of processing a problem and the environment he lives in has a huge connection. His train of thought is always linear and precise. It’s neither rational nor emotional. There is no room for hesitation. Each time he’s met with a problem, he must respond immediately. But you, as his son, live in a completely different environment…….”

“You’re the one that is his son!” Gu Hai suddenly became furious, “Your entire family are all his sons!”

The female doctor turned pale and lost her composure, before she spoke in a timid voice, “How can you say something like that?”

“The person you’re talking about and the one I’m thinking of are completely different people!”

“I……”

“A psychiatrist? Don’t interrupt me. Lousy, good for nothing.” Gu Hai waved his hand with a dark face, “Get lost quickly, don’t wait for me to chase you out!”

The female doctor, “……”

The FATHER and SON’S formal Discussion

“Love?” Gu Wei Ting’s eyes widened like that of a fierce tiger on the verge of a bloody battle, “Two men has the audacity to speak so shamelessly about love here?”

Immediately after saying this, he walked toward Gu Hai, pulled him by the collar, with the intention of throwing him toward the front door. However, Gu Hai had already established a defense against it by firmly grounding his foot to the floor. Even with a formidable anger matching that of an unstoppable tornado, Gu Wei Ting was still unable to drag Gu Hai from his spot. Not even a bit.

CAUGHT in the MOMENT!

 

Translator: Sae

※ ※ ※ ※ ※

 

As the elevator door gradually cracked open, Gu Hai’s footstep stagnant in a moment of shock. He stared ahead for a few seconds before quietly walking out. Bai Luo Yin was crouching in front of the apartment’s door near a messy pile of cigarette butts. When he heard the sound of the elevator door starting to open, he raised his eyelids for a quick glimpse, then quickly let it hang low again. Noting that the cigarette hanging loosely in his hand was only half smoked, he took a deep breath of it and flung it on the ground with the rest.

Gu Hai crouched down close by. His eyes immediately swept toward Bai Luo Yin, taking all of him in. Keeping his sight only on him, an incomparably gentle and soft expression painted his face the color of warmth. It was as if he was a completely different person from the bastard that was causing trouble this afternoon.

“Why aren’t you going in? Aren’t you cold staying here?” As those words broke the silence, he held Bai Luo Yin’s hands, feeling the soft skin beneath his own ice-cold like a piece of frozen iron bar. Distress and regret crawled up his face immediately as the cold sensation gripped his heart.

“Were you outside waiting for me the entire time?”

Needless to say, this question was outright ridiculous to ask. Isn’t it obvious from the pile of cigarette butts on the ground!

“I just saw that message a moment ago.” Gu Hai lifted Bai Luo Yin’s chin, “If I’d seen it earlier, I would’ve come back immediately and make you something to eat. Did you eat yet?”

Bai Luo Yin remained silent as those words percolate through the chilly air. He looked attentively at Gu Hai, not daring to break away.

Just one look at Bai Luo Yin masked in this appearance, Gu Hai knew with certainty that he had not eaten yet.

“Come on, let’s go in. I’ll make something for you to eat.”

Gu Hai stood up and tried to pull Bai Luo Yin along inside, but in the end, he couldn’t move him. This beating heart that had frozen over for half a day had finally melted completely in this noiseless moment. It was like an iceberg that after proudly basking beneath the sun’s brilliant light, at last, transformed into a pool of water.

In the dead of night, thinking of how Bai Luo Yin crouched here and waited for him to return home, he wondered, if……if he had not seen that message, would he have waited here for the entire night?

Letting the silent of this tender moment overtake him, Gu Hai’s arms wrapped around Bai Luo Yin. As he embraced him, he could feel the cold air that swallowed his whole body from head to toe.

“Can we go inside?” Gu Hai pleaded softly, “If I act out like an asshole again, you can beat me right away. No matter how angry I get, I won’t ever leave you home alone by yourself again.”

Bai Luo Yin’s stiff hands gently caressed Gu Hai’s neck, allowing a slight chill to trace along the arteries beneath and flowing into the center of his heart.

“If you didn’t come back, it would be meaningless for me to go through this door.”

Gu Hai lovingly caressed Bai Luo Yin’s hair, pushing a few strands to the side before his warm cheeks snuggled into Bai Luo Yin’s cold and shivery face. His heart tightened and seared with remorse.

“In the future, I will never leave. Never again.”

At this moment, an irrepressible sensation beckoned veiled feelings to cascade from Bai Luo Yin’s trembling lips as he tells Gu Hai’s the words that had long lie dormant at the bottom of his heart.

“Those 20 days that you went away, the most painful thing for me was sleeping alone. Every time I felt the space beside me, there was no one there. I would wake up, unable to fall asleep again. That reality…it scared me. I was really scared…so scared that something would happen to you. I……didn’t dare think about it. Every day I closed my eyes, I tell myself that you’re lying here beside me. I drank because there’s this insufferable pain in my heart. I slept with someone else because I wanted to find a companion so that I wouldn’t go into panic and lose myself. In reality, it didn’t matter who that person was, so long as I fell asleep, that person is definitely you.”

These words…so foreign as they are, knotted tightly together like the stems of morning glories climbing its branch at the earliest glimpse of sunlight. The warmth and sincerity that encased those words, flowed all too willingly into Gu Hai’s heart, weakening it. It was almost hard to believe; touched at the core of his being and moved his soul between sentimental feelings of love and guilt.

“At that time, I should’ve given you a few more calls. I should’ve not made such a long phone call, then went without contacting you for so many days. I’m too selfish, I cared too much about my own self needs and……always neglected your feelings.”

“What use is there in saying these words now?” Bai Luo Yin seized Gu Hai’s ear, “All the things that has been done, has been done!”

“How can it be of no use?” Gu Hai used his stubbles to rub against Bai Luo Yin’s lips, “At the least, it lets me know how sorry I am.”

“So what if you know?” Bai Luo Yin sharp eyes swept towards Gu Hai’s warm and gentle ones. “Now that you know how sorry you are, next time there’s an argument, are you going to try even harder to fuck me to death?”

“No, no, no……you fuck. You fuck me.” Although Gu Hai laughed shamelessly, there were traces of regret echoing in his voice.

“You’re the one that said this. Next time you act like an asshole, I’m going to tear your pants off without any hesitation!”

With utmost delight, Gu Hai willingly nodded his head.

Bai Luo Yin smiled. His smile, like a flicker of warm light dispersed in the dark and gloomy corridor, illuminating every part it touched in an endless sea of brilliance. It was so crystal clear, that the joy it brought was all too obvious and much needed.

Just one look, Gu Hai’s heart was instantly drenched with intoxication. He gazed into the clear spring that sprouted inside the deepest part of Bai Luo Yin’s eyes. Everything else surrounding them had lost its clarity and hung in a sea of blurriness. Only his eyes, his nose, his lips……left a clear and ineradicable impression that engraved deeply in his mind.

Exerting a slight force into his hand, Gu Hai pushed Bai Luo Yin’s head back against the wall behind him.

Their lips sealed.

At first, the kiss was light and gentle like dragonflies skimming the surface of a serene body of water. Then the kiss deepened and intensified immeasurably. Never had these light red lips been loved in such an exquisite and delicate way like this before. The corners of their burning lips were pried open and as it swept across the other’s teeth, the tip of their moistened and trembling tongues can be felt as it met. Gu Hai’s rough hand cushioned and protected the soft hair at the back of Bai Luo Yin’s head, while Bai Luo Yin hands gently cupped Gu Hai’s cheeks. Their feelings were deep and strong, drawn with love and longing……

Under the dim lighting, their long shadows stretched out and splayed across the elevator door.

That was only until, at a certain point in time, these two long shadows were abruptly severed.

However, they were still completely unaware and showed no signs of worry or trepidation.

Time seemed to have ceased in this moment.

Aside from the two of them sinking deeper into this irresistible passion, there was another person drafted with utter shock and mystification.

Gu Wei Ting’s only intention was to come see Gu Hai for a moment, but this moment became the most unforgettable time in his life.

His two sons were engaging in an illicit and detestable behavior that defied the natural order of things in front of his very eyes.

General Gu does not have much leisure time within his busy schedule to come here merely to see such a passionate scene radiate to all corners. If other people suffered from a nosebleed, it would certainly be from envy, admiration or hate derived at sight of this scene, but his nosebleed on the other hand, was a forewarning of the blood shed that would come with the uncontrollable wrath.

The two were still selflessly lingering in ecstasy, oblivious of the dark presence. Suddenly, a loud breaking sound shot from the door.

Gu Hai raised his brows and cast a side glance, only to see Gu Wei Ting’s ashen, stern and imposing face appear in his line of sight.

But, when Gu Wei Ting looked to the side, all he saw was Gu Hai moving his tongue out of Bai Luo Yin’s mouth.

There was no time to react as Gu Wei Ting had already shot forth, like a mighty arrow, and ruthlessly dragged Gu Hai away from Bai Luo Yin. Then immediately after, he heartlessly kicked him. Gu Hai’s body suddenly smashed against the door. A loud thud broke through this unforeseeable moment of violence. That thud was the sound of the back of Gu Hai’s head hitting the steel door.

It is possible to imagine, after the back of his head suffered such a huge attack like this, how dizzy and faint Gu Hai must have felt. Fortunately, he had exerted his strength to grip the doorknob in time, so that his body did not slide down to the floor.

That alone did not satiate the overwhelming anger still raging on inside Gu Wei Ting as he turned to face Gu Hai and raised his hand high.

Bai Luo Yin was riddled with an unsettling feeling as he quickly rushed in front of Gu Hai, shielding him.

The fearful and intimidating aura that seeped from Gu Wei Ting could easily elicit fright from anyone who came close to it.

“Do you think I won’t dare touch you?” Gu Wei Ting glowered Bai Luo Yin.

Like a mountain formed by thousands of years of natural formation, making it unshakeable, Bai Luo Yin remained motionless in front of Gu Hai, as if ready at any given moment to bravely shield him with his own life.

Sensing a presence in front of him, Gu Hai suddenly gained control of his mind and dragged Bai Luo Yin behind him, while the image of an evil creature without any restraint feasted on his face and its monstrous aura veil the air.

“Don’t you dare touch him!!”

Gu Wei Ting, whose body is like that of a ferocious tiger, jolted.

“What did you just say to me?”

Bai Luo Yin wanted to cover Gu Hai’s mouth with his hand, but unfortunately, it was too late. Just as his hand shot out, Gu Hai firmly grasped it, holding it in his own.

“I don’t have any objection if you beat me to death, but you can’t touch him. If you hit him, I will stop calling you father!”

“Do you think there’s some sort of value in you calling me father?” Gu Wei Ting forcibly clutched Gu Hai’s collar and pulled him over with a formidable strength. “Now, I’m eager to not have a son like you!”

“It’s too late for you to regret it now! Who told you to let my mother give birth to me?”

“You!!……”

Gu Wei Ting’s anger rose to the point where he nearly suffered from internal bleeding. Yes, this bastard is despicable, but he was Gu Wei Ting only blood; and he alone was the embodiment and hope that his late wife entrusted to him.

“Both of you, come in now!!”

Right after this earth-shattering roar, the two bastards entered the apartment together to receive their interrogation.

“Tell me, what’s going on?”

A calm and collected appearance laid out across Gu Hai’s face, “Didn’t you just see it all?”

Gu Wei Ting flung the glass that was in his hang vigorously in Gu Hai’s direction. The loud shattering noise stung Bai Luo Yin’s eardrums.

“You better talk properly to me!”

Bai Luo Yin pulled Gu Hai’s hand, hoping to persuade him to cool down a bit, but Gu Wei Ting caught sight of this movement. Out of nowhere he drew out a military lash and suddenly flung it, with a powerful force, at the two that were firmly holding both their hands together. The scorching pain ached as it spread throughout the nerves, swelling his hand red; Bai Luo Yin forcibly tolerate the pain while secretly taking it several deep breaths. Unexpectedly, even then he did not release his hand but instead, tightened them even more.

“You two are indeed great brothers to each other!”

Gu Hai’s heart tightened with a twinge before he suddenly pulled Bai Luo Yin’s hand toward his face for a closer look. There were distinct traces of blood coloring the back of his hand now. Gu Hai’s eyes also darkened into a deep red color, nearly matching the ones before him. Just as his anger was about to flare out into a wildfire, Bai Luo Yin snatched it away by speaking ahead of him.

“Uncle, this is all my fault. I was the one that seduced Gu Hai first.”

Gu Hai panicked and the anxiousness in his head heightened. He hoops his arms around Bai Luo Yin’s shoulder, then angrily said, “Do I need you to be my scapegoat?”

Bai Luo Yin lowered his voice, “Don’t worry. Your dad won’t do anything to me.”

“Are you his son or am I his son? Even a cruel and wild beast will not devour its own cubs! No matter how angry he gets, what can he do to me?”

“He won’t kill you, but you’ll still suffer!”

“I’m willing to endure it!”

Gu Wei Ting watched on with a dark and gloomy face as his two sons seized and tore away from each other in front of him. In the end, unable to look on anymore, his hand suddenly smacked the table, “Are you two done wasting time yet?”

The two went silent at the same time.

Even then, Gu Hai still did not forget to massage the back of Bai Luo Yin’s hand that had suffer a hit from the lash.

Gu Wei Ting stood up, walked toward the front of them, and stared attentively at them.

Gu Hai confronted Gu Wei Ting with the face of a first-class soldier preparing for war.

After a long time, GU Wei Ting spoke, “Is it because the two of you have lived together for so long and don’t have girlfriends, that you guys would do something like this?”

Gu Wei Ting has been in the military for quite a long time so he had a deep understanding of an environment with only male. This kind of thing did not matter much since occasionally some men would overstep the boundary of what is proper. At the least, it was better than insulting or defiling a woman. But, the premise is that this occurrence should not happen on a regular basis. It should not overstep its boundaries or be taken to a degree that goes against morals or nature!

“No.” Gu Hai answered with an unyielding and strong-willed manner that seemed to also beckoned trouble. “We both had girlfriends before. But, because we love each other, we gave up on the romantic relationships between a man and a woman, and chose this path of no return instead. But, even then, we will never regret this, not even one bit!”

For some unknown reason, when Gu Hai said all those words, Bai Luo Yin realized in the depth of his heart, that even if on the road ahead they will be greeted with a raging storm of difficulties, he will never turn back or surrender.
