Chapter 23: Gu Hai quite LIKES YOU
Bai Luo Yin ate all the foods that he liked and left the foods that he didn’t like, then immediately placed it on top of You Qi’s desk.
“I left some for you to eat.”
You Qi had just woke up, he was still in a daze, then he saw a bunch of breakfast. He immediately grinned, “How do you know that I haven’t had breakfast yet?”
Bai Luo Yin’s heart touched. You Qi bought so many breakfasts for him, even though he himself hasn’t eaten anything yet.
You Qi sat up, he looked at the foods inside the bag, turned his head around and smiled.
“Are you repaying me for that day when I treated you?
When Bai Luo Yin heard that, he thought that something is wrong. Looks like You Qi is not the one who bought those foods for him.
“Don’t eat it yet.” Bai Luo Yin held You Qi’s hand.
You Qi frowned his eyebrows. “Do you regret giving it to me?”
“Wasn’t it you who bought these breakfast for me?”
These words didn’t provoke You Qi, but they provoked the guy behind him instead. He thought Bai Luo Yin ate so delightfully because he accepted his good intentions, but it turns out that he ate so much without knowing who gave it to him.
When he felt someone patting his shoulder, Bai Luo Yin turned his head around.
“If you don’t want to eat them, just throw them away. Do not make a gift out of something that is provided by someone else.”
Bai Luo Yin’s expression turned cold.
“So you’re the one who bought these things?”
Gu Hai didn’t say anything, but his expression answered Bai Luo Yin’s question.
Bai Luo Yin was annoyed, “Why didn’t you say it earlier? If I had known that it is you who bought these, I’d rather die from starving than to eat them.”
“But, you ate it already.”
Bai Luo Yin wanted to spit them out, “Who told you to put this here?”
Gu Hai became angry. I bought those things for you and you are still badmouthing me. I, Gu Hai, do I ever do something like this before? When my girlfriend wanted to eat a pancake, I didn’t even bother to queue up at the pancake stall to buy it for her.
“If you regret it, then just pay me. Those foods cost 32 yuan in total. Well, I won’t count those foods you didn’t eat, so just give me 30 yuan, it’s already enough.”
Bai Luo Yin clenched his teeth. His mouth was still unwilling to give up.
“Is your family selling breakfast for living? There’s no more business, so now you guys came up with these kinds of dirty tricks.”
“Yes, we do sell breakfast, and we’re specialized in tricking fools like you.”
Bai Luo Yin turned around, then he saw You Qi opened his breakfast. His heart was pissed off, he vented out his anger towards You Qi.
“Have I allowed you to eat?”
You Qi’s handsome face was puzzled, “These foods I ate, isn’t it a payback from you?”
Bai Luo Yin stood up and smacked You Qi.
After the break, the students split into some small groups and headed towards lab. You Qi walked beside Bai Luo Yin. He couldn’t help but to tease Bai Luo Yin, “Actually, Gu Hai is really good towards you.”
Bai Luo Yin was thinking about Shi Hui’s matter. When he heard what You Qi said, he quickly turned his head to You Qi.
“He’s good to me?” Bai Luo Yin couldn’t wait to rip You Qi’s mouth. “Why do you talk nonsense like that? Which part of him do you see that you think he’s being good to me?”
You Qi tidied his collar, taking his sweet time to answer, “Just look at those breakfast he bought this morning, just how much effort he took to buy them all. Those cakes and breads, he could easily buy them in one trip. But just look at the buns, hamburgers, pancakes, egg tarts, didn’t he queue at those different stalls one by one?”
Bai Luo Yin’s expression softened a bit, but his tone was neither hot nor cold. “Maybe he bought them in one stall?”
“Have you ever seen a stall that sells that many kind of breakfast? You’re satisfied with them anyway. If I had to queue to buy so many things, I wouldn’t have patience to do it.”
Bai Luo Yin remembered today’s breakfast, then suddenly he felt hot.
“I’m just wondering, why are you always making it difficult for Gu Hai?
“I’m making it difficult for him?” Bai Luo Yin felt wronged. “It’s him who always thinks that I’m just an eyesore! He’s always searching for my flaws. If someone can make him ignore me, I will bow down to that person 3 times!”
You Qi looked at Bai Luo Yin with amusement. “For what? I think, Gu Hai quite likes you anyway, every time I turned my head around, I always catch him staring at you. I am really confused, you say, he’s a guy, but how can he always stare at you all day and night.”
“Why do you think he does that? Must be thinking about how to prank me!”
“But all I can see in his eyes is admiration for you!”
“Bai Luo Yin, why are you heading that way?”
Hearing a familiar voice, Bai Luo Yin’s face beamed with delight. He went to Yang Meng’s side and grabbed his shoulder.
“Our next class is an experiment class, so we’re heading to the lab.”
“Oh.” Yang Meng smiled then looked at You Qi. “Who is this?”
“My classmate who’s sitting in front of me, You Qi.”
Bai Luo Yin introduced them.
Yang Meng nodded. “Continue.”
“Go on. It hasn’t finished yet right?”
Bai Luo Yin patted Yang Meng’s head. “What do you still want me to say?”
Yang Meng was surprised. “You still haven’t told me his name!”
Bai Luo Yin was speechless for a while. He is really deserved to be called his childhood friend.
Meanwhile, You Qi looked frustrated.
“My name is You Qi.”
Yang Meng awkwardly laughed, “Why do you have such a weird name?”
You Qi put on a cold expression, “I don’t like to hear what you have just said.”
“If you don’t like it, then go change your name.”
They had few casual conversations on the way to the lab, then You Qi asked Bai Luo Yin, “That guy just now, what was his name again?”
“What the… My name is still more reasonable than his!”
Bai Luo Yin gave a meaningful smile, “When both of you are standing together, it looks really good.”
“There’s sulfuric acid inside the lab, be careful, I can throw it to you.”
During English class, Bai Luo Yin always felt uneasy. One time his back felt really hot, it feels like something was burning his back. However, the other time he felt really cold, like someone stuffed ice cubes inside his uniform.
“I think Gu Hai quite likes you. Every time I turned my head around, I always catch him staring at you.”
Just now, he was feeling hot, but now it seemed like somebody sent chills down his spine.
Bai Luo Yin slowly turned his head around.
Damn, it was exactly like what You Qi said!
“Why are you looking at me?”
“Your head turned around like a steering wheel, if I didn’t watch you and it fell into a ditch, what should I do?”
“The class atmosphere is really depressing, I think everyone is sleepy. Let’s do this then, who sings the best in this class? I will ask him to sing an English song, so we could keep a lively atmosphere.”
“Now who wants to sing?”
Everyone went silent.
The English teacher smiled helplessly, “Or who wants to recommend someone?”
After a long silence, a voice can be heard from the back of the class.
“Bai Luo Yin.”
Bai Luo Yin could strangle Gu Hai to death right now.
“Who is called Bai Luo Yin? Just now I heard someone recommended you.”
Bai Luo Yin stood up, then used his leg to push his chair, until it hit Gu Hai’s chest strongly.
Since he stood up already, now he has to sing. He chose his most favorite song, then sang it softly.
The song was very short, but it stunned Gu Hai.
This English song, was the one that his mother often sang when he was a kid. Back then, she would do a waltz while singing this song. Her one-person waltz was so beautiful like a lonely and pretty swan. Even if those are his memories from years ago, whenever Gu Hai listened to this song, he could still remember those memories clearly.
The whole class applauded Bai Luo Yin, waking Gu Hai from his thoughts.
His classmate beside him said, “Bai Luo Yin, you’re really talented. How can God give all those talents to one person? If you can simply give one to me, that would be nice….”
Bai Luo Yin hadn’t even digested the praise when a cold voice came from behind him.
“I thought you could only use that mouth to eat.”
Days passed, every student in the class could tell that Gu Hai and Bai Luo Yin are enemies. If Bai Luo Yin said east, then Gu Hai would say west. When Bai Luo Yin did something, Gu Hai would definitely undo his actions. Even the nerds in the class asked Bai Luo Yin, “Why is Gu Hai always against you?”
“He is sick.”
Other than regarding Gu Hai as a crazy guy, Bai Luo Yin couldn’t find any other reason. He couldn’t imagine why a psychologically normal person would always want to pick a fight with him. He really wanted to ask Gu Hai, what did actually I do to provoke you? Why are you acting normal towards others, but when it comes to me, you…
However, every time before he could speak his mind, Gu Hai had already started his attacks. In order not to lose, Bai Luo Yin could only counterattack.
As time passed, his plans to end any argument swiftly were completely destroyed.
