THE WORDS YOU OWE ME
On their way back from Lake Namtso, the two decided to go and soak in the water at Yangbajing hot spring.
The steam from the hot springs here was famous for rising many meters, hundreds even, from the surface of the earth and ascending into the clear sky like waves of water on a breezy summer day.
Bai Luo Yin seemed a bit stunned when he saw the hot spring’s owner walk outside with a warm smile on his face. He leaned to the side and fished out two eggs from the mouth of the spring and hands it over to Bai Luo Yin and Gu Hai.
“Go ahead and eat it. They’re boiled now.”
Looking at the eggs, Bai Luo Yin simply narrowed his eyes just a bit and swallowed, not daring to accept them.
The owner chuckled before speaking in a heavy Henan accent , “I’m telling you, it’s definitely cooked.”
Being the one that was not as cautious as Bai Luo Yin, Gu Hai promptly accepted the eggs and started to peel one of them. The egg white appeared transparent and seemed a little soft, not at all like the firmer ones cooked at home. At first, they had thought the egg yolk would still be in liquid form, but after breaking it to the center, the yolk was already completely cooked. Once he took a bite of it and chewed, Gu Hai realized that it was rather tasty. By then, he couldn’t help but praise the owner’s ingenuity.
“The eggs boiled in the hot spring water are pretty good.”
After saying that, Gu Hai gaily handed one over to Bai Luo Yin, “Taste one, it’s really cooked.”
I’m not worried that it’s not cooked. It’s because it’s too cooked, thought Bai Luo Yin, feeling surprisingly terrified as he pouts.
“If the hot spring here can boil an egg until it’s completely cooked like this, wouldn’t a layer of our skin peel off if we go in?”
Gu Hai’s eyes slightly widened before his brows drew close. His face was daubed in incredulity as he looked at that sweet naïve boy in front of him. Tilting his head to the side, he immediately burst into a spell of laughter. Even the owner who was standing to the side couldn’t help but laugh along. It was likely that they were both laughing at Bai Luo Yin’s adorable statement and the lovely expression that settled on his youthful countenance.
“Are you stupid? If that was the case, do you think they would actually let us bath in boiling hot water? The water in the hot springs has already cooled off a bit. Do you see that outdoor pool over there? The water in the spring there has been cooled. We’ll be bathing over there.”
Looking at Gu Hai as he meticulously explained it, Bai Luo Yin was a bit embarrassed, evident by the punch pink color that crept up from his neck to his cheeks.
“You never told me that, how was I supposed to know?”
“It’s common sense. You actually needed me to tell you?” Gu Hai laughed again, putting his hand on Bai Luo Yin’s shoulder.
Feeling disgruntled, Bai Luo Yin shoved Gu Hai’s hand off, snatched the egg and made his way towards the dressing room.
Shit! As expected, having been with this fool for so long my IQ has also dropped!
Even though this pool of water had already cooled off, it was still a bit hot to the touch. It was only after a long while was Bai Luo Yin able to withstand the temperature and actually enjoy it. Gu Hai delightfully swam around the perimeter in one full circle before stopping at Bai Luo Yin’s side. The two leaned against the edge of the poolside by side and let the flowing spring water scrupulously massage their bodies, making them feel as if there were waves of heat coursing throughout their being.
As far as their eyes can see, there were mountains topped with pure white snow surrounding them. And, right in front of their eyes, were the tranquil grassland and flock of sheep leisurely moving about from one spot to the next. Every breath they took were laced with the smell of grass that seemed to have saturated the air long ago, leaving their senses pure and clear as the open sky. In this day and age, being able to enjoy a hot spring bath in this kind of environment was truly rare.
Just as Bai Luo Yin closed his eyes for a rest, he suddenly felt a lecherous hand inching down along his spine, wandering to the side of his sensitive waist. Finally, it slid towards the edge of his swimming trunk. With a strange whooshing sound, his eyes immediately shot open. When he noticed a young couple frolicking and chasing each other in the pool not too far away and some Tibetans walking back and forth along the shore, he quickly took hold of Gu Hai’s hand, stopping its salacious behaviors.
“What are you doing? There are people everywhere!!”
One of Gu Hai’s brow rose as a smile tugged at the side of his lips. He moved in closer and let his hot breath fan over Bai Luo Yin’s ear as he spoke, “What are you scared of? They’re all Tibetans anyways. Even if they curse us, it’s not like we’ll understand any of it.”
Bai Luo Yin was rendered speechless, “……”
Once the night sky rolled in, the temperature outside dropped precipitously, giving Bai Luo Yin and Gu Hai a definitive reason to stay in the hotel. Not surprisingly, there was a small hot spring pool built in every room of the hotel and inside was an abundance of medicinal herbs that can effectively ward off the cold and lethargy.
Bai Luo Yin and Gu Hai both lied back in the refreshing pool, chatting and eating fruits from the nearby plates. This kind of pleasure was very satisfying for their body and mind.
“I don’t want to go back.” Bai Luo Yin faintly said with his eyes still closed.
Gu Hai gently wrapped his arms around Bai Luo Yin, hugging him from behind while his hands flirtatiously linger about between his legs. Every breath he took radiated warmth that spread at the back of Bai Luo Yin’s neck, tickling the tip of his ear.
“We don’t have to go back if you don’t want to. We can stay here and become Buddhist monks.”
Bai Luo Yin didn’t hear a single word Gu Hai said, since nine out of ten times, his words were unreliable. But, leaning back against Gu Hai’s soft skin and relaxing like this felt extremely comfortable.
There was no need to think about anything else.
Although, there was a vast and tranquil world out there, in here stood a small room. A small room that only held two people who were leaning cozily against each other, talking about everything that circled their minds.
Gu Hai’s arm quietly wrapped around the side of Bai Luo Yin’s slender waist, slowly shifting up and down, massaging it back and forth several times. Finally, his hand reached his chest, giving way for his rough fingers to lightly graze and play with the two now erected nipples.
As Bai Luo Yin’s breaths became heavier, the corner of his eyes fell on Gu Hai. As if his alluring presence was calling out to him, he turned his head fully to the side to gaze at him, taking note of the way his tinted seductive lips seem to emit waves of cool air as it parted.
Gu Hai captured Bai Luo Yin’s aching lips in a sweet kiss. At first, it was gentle like the small ripples that flowed quietly along the surface of the water. Then as if starving for the other’s taste, the kiss gradually deepens, becoming more passionate with each passing second. Waves of heat started to form and unfurl inside their bodies before rolling downward and converging.
Letting their burning lips remain locked, the two simultaneously reached out and grabbed each other’s hard and throbbing member, playing with it lovingly. As if admiring and reveling in the feeling that roused their lusty bodies, their hands sped up, then slowed down, sensing the veins within the members rose. In this way, as they skillfully maneuvered their hands, they were also able to manipulate the other person’s mood, until both lose control completely……
As Gu Hai squeezed some shower gel on his hand and patiently smeared it all over Bai Luo Yin’s body, Bai Luo Yin closed his eyes and kept silent. Amidst the rising mist, his handsome and flushed face appeared real in one moment then like a fantasy in the next moment. Gu Hai’s hand snaked toward the soft skin between Bai Luo Yin’s legs. Feeling the ticklish sensation, Bai Luo Yin suddenly evaded him for a moment. Just as he could adjust himself, Gu Hai’s hand stealthily danced towards his ass before he easily slipped a finger in.
Bai Luo Yin’s eyes cracked open just the slightest. His intimidating eyes captured and besieged Gu Hai’s whose desires seemed to color his entire face as he shoved his finger in harder.
Bai Luo Yin’s brows rose slightly, weaving together momentarily before he let out an enticing moan that excited Gu Hai to the point that all the hair on his body rose along with another extra stimulated friend.
Since it was not wise to bathe too long in a hot spring on such a high plateau, the two quickly wiped their bodies dry and got into the soft bed.
Wishing to continue his unsatisfied desires, a certain Mr. Bai let his hands travel towards a certain Mr. Gu’s body, preparing to have a beautiful and pleasant meal. Sensing Mr. Bai’s provocative teases, Mr. Gu unexpectedly bit his teeth and stood his ground, recalling all the unfairness he had suffered in the past. Looking squarely at Bai Luo Yin, he decided to seek compensation for all his suffering.
“You have to praise me first, if not, you’re not allowed to touch me.”
Bai Luo Yin shot Gu Hai a cold and charming glance. With just that, half of Gu Hai’s soul immediately left his body while the other half reluctantly remain, strung together only by a thin translucent piece of thread.
You won’t me touch you? Then, I’ll just use my mouth to defeat you.
Giving Gu Hai another seductive glance, Bai Luo Yin swiftly bent down and sucked Gu Hai’s left nipple. Taken aback, Gu Hai abruptly swallowed a breath of air. A quarter of the remaining half of his soul dissipated yet again while the remaining quarter was strung up somewhere unknown. But today, he is going to be a proper husband and persisted no matter what.
If you don’t say something, I’ll leave you high and dry.  Let’s see who can hold out longer between the two of us.
“If you don’t praise me, don’t even think about touching me!”
Village chief Gu promptly pushed away from the anxious young Lady Bai.
Bai Luo Yin completely lost his patience. Fuck, you’re harder to please than a woman! If you won’t let me touch you, then I won’t. Am I going starve to death without you?
As he turned his body away, the back of his head heartlessly confronted Gu Hai’s blazing eyes.
Not to be outdone, Gu Hai relentlessly pulled out his secret weapons. He quickly placed his nimble fingers and flirty tongue close to Bai Luo Yin’s waist to tease him. Unsurprisingly, this was one of the areas that Gu Hai had focused on exploiting since the beginning. Bai Luo Yin, on the other hand, does not know what method Gu Hai had utilized on him. His waist was not so sensitive like this before, but now Gu Hai has trained it so that it can hardly be touched without feeling extremely sensitive.
Unable to restrain himself any longer, Bai Luo Yin finally declared his defeat.
“Your skin is really nice.” Bai Luo Yin fiercely cursed himself for giving in.
The tip of Gu Hai’s warm tongue circled around Bai Luo Yin’s erected nipples, “What else?”
Bai Luo Yin inhaled sharply and replied in a cold and indifferent tone, “Your muscles are really firm.”
Gu Hai’s finger prowled towards Bai Luo Yin’s ass before he provocatively toyed with the opening by rubbing and lightly rubbing it.
“Are you done yet?” Bai Luo Yin unyielding eyes tackled Gu Hai’s straight on.
Gu Hai’s finger charged in furiously, thrusting back and forth with a despotic demeanor inside the tight and narrow passage. It hit Bai Luo Yin’s fatal spot repeatedly until small sprinkles of sweat formed and outlined his face.
“I said stop!” Bai Luo Yin faintly exclaimed even though an ambivalent expression descended on him.
“Are you going to say it or not? Hmmm?” Gu Hai’s firm body weighed heavily on Bai Luo Yin, stifling his movements. Then, he pushed another finger in, making it hard for him to resist this stimulation. “You haven’t finished praising me yet. If you don’t praise me until I’m satisfied, I’ll keep torturing you like this……”
Bai Luo Yin’s torso has already risen off the bed sheets. His twisted face, as he became completely aroused, was exceptionally erotic in Gu Hai’s eyes.
Gu Hai’s impish brows rose deliberately, “What? I didn’t hear you.”
Still rather vexed, Bai Luo Yin’s hands flew out and clutched Gu Hai’s ears until it became bloody red.
After the passionate exchange, as if suddenly recalling something urgent, Gu Hai’s eyes immediately fell on Bai Luo Yin.
“You still owe me some words!”
Bai Luo Yin exploded all at once, “What else do I owe you?”
Whatever I could say or couldn’t say have all be fucking said already just now!!! What else do you want to make me say?!!!
“Don’t worry, don’t worry……” Gu Hai started to display a gentle and considerate attitude again, “I’m not talking about those kinds of words. It’s some very serious words. At that time, I said it to you, but you never responded.”
“What words?” Bai Luo Yin asked.
“Do you still remember the night of New Year’s Eve? We had drunk too much and role-played. I acted as……”
“Don’t remind me of that!” Bai Luo Yin interrupted rather intensely, “I’ve never played that with you. Don’t mix me in that mess you’ve made up!! If you keep giving me that nonsense, I’ll fucking get mad at you!”
In regard to that night, Bai Luo Yin refused to admit it happened even if his life depended on it. Although there was sufficient evidence, he still vehemently denies that he had done something so ludicrous. Every time Gu Hai mentioned it, Bai Luo Yin would howl loudly about it like an angry puppy.
“Fine, fine, fine, let’s not talk about that game. Let’s talk about what happened after. Do you still remember what I said to you then?”
Bai Luo Yin honestly shook his head. He doesn’t even remember such a large-scale game, let alone what was said at the end.
Gu Hai pulled close to Bai Luo Yin, allowing their faces to nearly touch, “I said I love you.”
The bottom of Bai Luo Yin’s heart slightly trembled as he turned his head to look at Gu Hai, only to find that the latter was gazing at him with an extremely soft and tender-hearted expression.
“Shouldn’t you also express your feelings?”
Bai Luo Yin evaded Gu Hai’s piercing gaze, “I didn’t hear it.”
“I LOVE YOU!” Gu Hai said loudly once again, “Did you hear it this time?”
Giving him another glance, Bai Luo Yin simply nodded, “I heard it this time.”
Then…there was nothing else.
Gu Hai waited until all the water in the hot spring pool had nearly evaporated but even then, he did not hear another word from Mr. Bai. When he turned his head to look at Mr. Bai, he was already lost to the dreamland to confess his own feelings.
 Henan – Yu for short, is a province located in the Northern Central Region of China. It shares its borders with six other provinces, Shandong to the northeast, Hebei to the north, Shanxi to the northwest, Shaanxi to the west, Hubei to the south, and Anhui to the east. The eastern portion is flat and part of the North China Plain, one of the most densely populated areas on Earth. Indeed, Henan is the most populous province in China, with almost 100 million people. The mountainous west and southwest is more remote with vast expanses of forest. The Yellow River (mother river of the Chinese nation) runs through Henan.
