Addicted: Chapter 18

Just laugh until you die!

Translator: Sae / Editor: Angie / Proofread: Blue Blossoms

In school, it wasn’t strange to boys often going shirtless, especially right after physical education class. Normally, this was not something that anyone paid much attention to, but in the grand scheme of things, there is always an exception to the rule. Gu Hai probably being the only exception. With his toned muscular body attractive enough to walk the runway, which man wouldn’t envy him?

Back in the classroom, everyone was still talking about Gu Hai and, unsurprisingly, their eyes were locked solely on him. Feeling their eyes on him, Gu Hai quickly started to get dressed. Otherwise, people would start speculating that he just wanted to show off.

He grabbed his uniform jacket and put both of his hands inside. But when he tried to push his head through the collar, uhhh……

Go in, go in! What the hell? Why can’t my head get out?

Feeling puzzled, Gu Hai took out his head, looked at his uniform, and found a serious problem.

Why does my jacket only has two holes? The neck? Where did the neck go?

Gu Hai hastily checked his uniform. Then, with a heavy heart, he saw a black line along the neckline, just like little ants gathered together before a rainfall.

The hell, the collar is stitched together. How did this happen?

Blanking out for a moment, Gu Hai then quickly checked the inside of his drawer.

The needle and thread had vanished!!

Glancing up, he immediately noticed that Bai Luo Yin’s seat was empty and the person himself was missing. As Gu Hai turned his head this way and that, he was greeted with a faint smile, plastered guilefully on Bai Luo Yin’s bright face. Gu Hai, who was still bewildered, wasn’t even aware of how long Bai Luo Yin had been standing there, but judging from the look on his face, it was clear that he had thoroughly enjoyed the show.

Bai Luo Yin simply watched Gu Hai’s expression as he slowly walked to his own seat, sitting down silently, and then, suddenly…

“Hahahahaha…”

No longer able to hold back the laughter that wanted to crawl out, he burst out laughing to the point that he pounded his hand hard on his desk.

You Qi, who sat in front of him, was shocked the moment he heard the loud cackling sound from behind him. Personally, he had never seen Bai Luo Yin laugh that much before. So when he turned his head, he was even more surprised when he saw Bai Luo Yin laughing till tears were flowing down the corners of his eyes. He continued to laughed, unable to control his emotions.

“What caused you to become like this?”

You Qi’s question didn’t get any response, since Bai Luo Yin was too busy laughing his head off.

For some unknown reason, when Gu Hai saw Bai Luo Yin laughing so joyously like that, he felt mystified instead. It was as if he couldn’t choose between the mixed feelings that encircled his mind. Simply put, he had no idea whether he should cry or laugh.

Well, who can he blame? He was the one who had brought the needle and thread and sneakily cut holes in someone else’s uniform. Since that someone had done the same thing to him, what could he possibly say? Pushing those thoughts aside for the time being, he quickly tried to tear open the stitches. If he had known earlier that this disaster would happen, he wouldn’t have brought such a strong thread. Unsuccessful with tearing it out by hand, Gu Hai looked everywhere for something to cut the thread with.

The bell rang. Whether Gu Hai was standing or sitting down, his hands were still battling with his uniform in an all-out attack to tear it open. But, it soon became obvious that the stitches were done really tightly and held together firmly. Even after struggling for a long time, he only managed to tear it just a bit.

Unfortunately, the next period happened to be chemistry class with a female teacher in her early fifties who was known to be strict and relentless in nature. As she spread out the lesson sheets for the day on her desk, her eyes scrutinized the whole class. Then, she spotted Gu Hai.

“You! Boy in the last row! This class doesn’t require you to be naked!”

At those loud words, all eyes immediately flew toward Gu Hai. Without even looking at them, Gu Hai could tell the meaning behind their gazes.

So what if he is excellent in P.E. class, does he have no shame trying to act cool in class?

“Teacher, I have a slight problem with my uniform. I will deal with it immediately.”

After he said that, Gu Hai started to tear open the stitches once again, but they were too hard for him. Ten minutes had passed yet he had only managed to undo half of them.

“I’ll only say this once more. If you like being naked that much, just go outside right now. I don’t care how other people look at you, but do not be naked in my class. This will affect the mood of my lecture.”

Gu Hai looked at Bai Luo Yin whose shoulders were shaking from laughter.

“You, just how much thread did you use?”

“I stitched the same number of pull-ups you did.”

“Shit!”

Why did he do this to him? He was tired, sweaty, and yet he was being toyed around with!

Bai Luo Yin rubbed his stomach trying to calm it down. He really had no more strength left to laugh and it was likely that he wouldn’t have any strength left to walk home either.

At a loss, Gu Hai finally went outside the class. Standing out there, he continued to remove the stitches but by the time he managed to open them all, class had ended.

The bell rang. Gu Hai went back to the classroom and noticed that Bai Luo Yin was packing up his belongings. When Bai Luo Yin saw Gu Hai, he couldn’t help but smile again.

Gu Hai suddenly grabbed Bai Luo Yin and glared at him. “So now you know how to laugh, eh?”

“I’ve always been able to laugh!”

Seeing the mess that was Gu Hai’s uniform, Bai Luo Yin cracked up again.

Gu Hai gave Bai Luo Yin a rough shove and went back to his own seat.

“Just laugh until you die, you bastard!”
