CAUGHT in the MOMENT!
※ ※ ※ ※ ※
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?”
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.
