Addicted: Chapter 14

Two people in a fight!

Translator: Sae | Proofreader: anasofi

On the early morning of the next day, Bai Luo Yin was late to class as usual. When he placed his school bag down, he caught sight of a small box in his drawer and immediately pulled it out for a look. However, once he clearly saw what is was, he quickly shoved it back in.

What’s going on? Who the hell put a pair of underwear in my desk?

Just yesterday, he sneakily laughed about a girl giving You Qi a bag of toilet paper, and now, he had actually received a pair of underwear! Did someone mistakenly place it in my drawer?

However, before he rummaged through his mind any further, a piece of paper dispelled Bai Luo Yin’s thoughts.

‘This is for you.’

Seeing that they were the exact same words from yesterday, Bai Luo Yin immediately threw the box on You Qi’s table without even comparing the style of the characters.

“Aren’t you being extremely disgusting?!”

At that time, You Qi was lying on his desk, practically dozing off, when something suddenly struck him in the head. He looked up and thought ‘oh my goodness!’. It was a pair of underwear.

“I see how it is! Xiao Bai, I didn’t know that you’re cold and retiring on the outside, but actually deep and passionate on the inside! Two days ago, you gave me toilet paper, and today you went ahead and gave me underwear.”

“Fuck off!” Bai Luo Yin cursed at him, then picked up his books and walked outside the classroom.

Having witnessed everything, Gu Hai laughed helplessly to himself. That guy would rather wear a wet underwear than receive a bit of assistance. But on the contrary, he has a lot of backbone!

That wet underwear had tormented Bai Luo Yin repeatedly throughout the day. He had gone to sleep with it on last night and it was already dry in the morning, but the moisture that circulated through it never left, so the ending result was that he had diarrhea.

Within three classes, Bai Luo Yin had gone to the bathroom seven times. After the seventh time, he actually found it embarrassing, and opted to not return to the classroom. Instead, he remained crouching outside of the class for half an hour until the school day was dismissed at noon.

When he went to gather his belongings, Bai Luo Yin could still hear his stomach making noises and acting up without his permission yet again. He hated Bai Han Qi bitterly. Since he was young, Bai Han Qi had made him suffer many times due to his negligence.

Just as Bai Luo Yin took a deep breath and was about to walk out, something suddenly dropped to the ground. He picked it up for a look, only to see that it was a small medicine box used for the treatment of diarrhea.

Fuck, what evil incantation caused this atrocious thing to materialize?

No matter how confused Bai Luo Yin was, he knew that You Qi was not the one that had given it to him, since You Qi did not leave the school building or went to the infirmary. How could he have known that I would have diarrhea? Let alone prepare this medicine for me in advance…

Now that he thought about the situation regarding the pair of underwear, Bai Luo Yin also thought that it was extremely odd.

Since the underwear could not have been purchased at school, that eliminated the students that lived on campus, which in turn, eliminated You Qi as a possible suspect. Thinking about it more carefully, if a certain open-minded schoolgirl gave it to me for the sake of expressing her love, and intentionally placed an underwear in my desk to feel out my interest first, then…

No, that’s wrong… how can the timing be so coincidental?

I only happened to not have any underwear to wear yesterday, and this morning one magically appeared. Then, I only happened to wear wet underwear today, and a box of laxative appeared. What are the chances of that? None. These were well prepared beforehand.

In other words…

Bai Luo Yin threw his school bag on the desk and asked coldly, “Who followed me last night?”

At that moment, there were only a few students left in the room, but Bai Luo Yin had no doubts whatsoever.That person must be among the students here. He must be observing my every move.

Gu Hai had a slightly sluggish expression on. He was not expecting for Bai Luo Yin to be so astute like that. Relying on just underwear and a small medicine box, he was able to deduce that someone had followed him last night.

“Stop fucking around!”

Bai Luo Yin was furious, as he angrily flung the medicine box. The box struck the wall, bounced back and was caught firmly by Gu Hai in midair.

At that very moment, all the students remaining in the classroom immediately withdrew. Their past experiences told them not to ever provoke Bai Luo Yin. In their hearts, they only chanted one sentence: this person is completely impossible to handle.

Naturally, there was an exception, and that exception was the originator of the problem.

“Me.”

It was a simple word, yet, when it came out of Gu Hai’s mouth, there was an earth-shattering aggressiveness to it. As he walked over to Bai Luo Yin, each step was firm and steady, unlike the careless and giddy attitude that the majority of his peers possessed.

“I don’t have any other intention. I only wanted to take care of you and apologize for what I did.” Gu Hai smiled while pressing the medicine back into Bai Luo Yin’s hands.

‘Never hit a person that’s smiling at you’,[1]that principle Bai Luo Yin understood.

“Just because of the two lousy characters that you wrote?”

Even now, Bai Luo Yin still brooded over Gu Hai’s celebrity-like signature, and it was also from that day on that Gu Hai had left an extremely vile image of himself in Bai Luo Yin’s mind. No matter which aspect of Gu Hai he took a look at, he found him to be an eyesore, and even the way he answered the question made him feel frustrated.

“Of course not,” Gu Hai calmly admitted. “It’s because I ripped your essay paper so that I could use it to practice writing characters.”

Five seconds later, Bai Luo Yin’s angry roar sounded in the classroom.

“You motherfucker!—”

At that very moment, no known language in the world could be used to describe Bai Luo Yin’s wrath. Just because of a piece of essay paper, he stood outside of the classroom during the literature and language class for a week. At that moment, the main culprit was only stating his sin in a casual tone that was very shallow, without a trace of fear or a bit of guilt.

With that, Bai Luo Yin firmly gripped Gu Hai’s collar and forced him straight toward the corner of a wall.

“Did you have nothing better to do than to fucking rip my essay? Why didn’t you say something to me beforehand? You are looking for trouble, huh?”

“Because I admire your characters. You should feel happy about that.”

Bai Luo Yin was going to be driven mad by Gu Hai any time then, but he could not fly into a fit of rage at that instant. He could not roar, he could not argue loudly or cause a ruckus. Being like that tantamount to losing face. The one thing that he wanted to do was punch him!

After suffering a few severe blows from Bai Luo Yin, Gu Hai bound Bai Luo Yin’s shoulders securely while wearing an expression that said, ‘I’m not going to lower myself to your level’.

“All right, that’s enough. I already apologized to you. Stop dragging it on.”

Bai Luo Yin took in a few heavy breaths, pushed Gu Hai away and pointed at his nose. He cursed, “I have never met anyone as shameless as you!”

Gu Hai also pressed his finger against Bai Luo Yin’s forehead, “I also have never met anyone that can make me apologize like you.”

“Pei!”[2]

Bai Luo Yin gifted Gu Hai with that one word, without hesitation or stinginess.

The crown prince master Gu leaned his tall and well-built physique against the doorframe, narrowed his eyes and watched as the handsome and outstanding figure moved farther and farther away. He mentally snorted and laughed to himself.

Rest assured, we’re not done yet.

Translator’s Note:

[1] Never hit a person that’s smiling at you (伸手不打笑脸人) – this means that when you raise your hands to a person that has done wrong, the person had already acknowledged their wrongdoing with a smile. So, you must endure it and not hit them. In order words, show the person you’ve done wrong to a smile and they will forgive you. (YEAH, RIGHT!)

[2] Pei! – the sound made when you spit (in contempt).
