Early in the morning, the weather was a little bit cloudy. As Gu Hai rode on his bike, he felt his arms were really cold. When he arrived in front of Bai Luo Yin’s doorstep, Bai Luo Yin had already stood there with his own things well-prepared. He was waiting for Gu Hai.

This is the first time Gu Hai saw Bai Luo Yin in his casual clothes. In the past, Bai Luo Yin always wore his uniform. Moreover, it was summer uniform. Some students were wearing sweater already, yet Bai Luo Yin still wore his vest. So his classmates thought that Bai Luo Yin’s firepower was really big. Today is a rare chance for Gu Hai to see Bai Luo Yin wearing a long-sleeved clothing, so Gu Hai was ready to tease him.

“So you can still differentiate between hot and cold. You’re still human like the rest of us.”

Bai Luo Yin showed an especially tactful smile. He picked up a fishing rod beside him and all of a sudden, he hit Gu Hai’s leg fiercely with it.

Gu Hai felt as if surge of flames lit up his lower leg. He breathed relentlessly as he endured the pain. Meanwhile, Bai Luo Yin had already dragged Gu Hai’s bike to his courtyard as they planned to walk to the fishing spot.

Along the way, Gu Hai intentionally walked with a slower pace. He looked at Bai Luo Yin from behind for a long time. He frequently saw that other people on the street was also wearing the same clothes as Bai Luo Yin’s. When they wore it, it’s extremely ordinary. But when Bai Luo Yin wore it, he looked incredibly stylish. Bai Luo Yin’s face is young, but when he wears those clothes, he emitted a hint of special masculinity.

“Your outfit is pretty good, where did you buy it?”

“It’s my dad’s.”

No wonder the longer he looked at Bai Luo Yin, the more mature he becomes…

“You still wear your dad’s clothes?”

Bai Luo Yin replied nonchalantly, “We, father and son, always wear the same clothes, I don’t like shopping. Whatever clothes my father bought, I will wear it.”

Gu Hai laughed, “Don’t tell me, you and your father only have one long-sleeved shirt. So when you wear it right now, your father has to go to work bare-chested….”

Bai Luo Yin confronted Gu Hai and displayed a very optimistic look, “You look down on us too much. So, suppose if our family of four only have a piece of cotton-padded clothing, and if one person wears it and go out, the remaining three people are only able to bury ourselves in a pit to warm ourselves.”

“So, do you also have fat grandma and skinny grandma?” [1]

This short sentence finally won Bai Luo Yin’s knowing smile.

“So, you’ve actually heard about the story of Guo De Gang.” [2]

Both of them chatted as they walked on the street. Gu Hai realized that Bai Luo Yin was a very brilliant talker, and he also spoke in a way to trap people’s words. So, if he wasn’t careful, he would be trapped by Bai Luo Yin’s words. In order to converse with Bai Louyin, you would have to use your brain all the time. His words were usually very short and casual. But after pondering over them for a long time, they would make a lot of sense.

“We’re here.”

Bai Luo Yin sat on a patch of grassland. He neatly unraveled his fishing lines.  He opened a can, took the bait out, and stick it on the hook. Then, he proceeded to search for a spot which was quite even and peaceful. He then threw the fishing bait and sat down.

Gu Hai then walked towards Bai Luo Yin.

This was a wild fishing spot. It was not too big, nevertheless the water quality here was pretty good.

No one fed the fishes in this lake, so there weren’t many big fishes. Almost every fish was only 10 cm long. They had little meat, but it’s really chewy.

“After we’ve finished fishing, do we have to pay according to the weight?”

Bai Luo Yin glanced at Gu Hai, “Do you think this is a fishing park? There isn’t even a single person here within 3 miles. Where are you going to pay?”

Gu Hai pinched Bai Luo Yin’s cheek. Pretending to be angry, he said, “Can you give me a better attitude when talking to me? Every time before you open your mouth, you always give me a long face.”

Bai Luo Yin shifted, and then he slowly turned his aching face towards Gu Hai, “I’ll tell you this, I hate it the most when other people pinch my face.”

Gu Hai pinched Bai Luo Yin’s cheek again.

Bai Luo Yin was annoyed, he scolded Gu Hai right in front of his face, “Are you a pervert?”

Gu Hai tore his shirt buttons off, exposing his six pack body. He proudly raised the corner of his left lips and said, “Do you think I look like one?”

Bai Luo Yin gave him a scornful expression, “Besides showing off your muscles, what else can you do?”

“Pinch your cheeks.”


Five minutes later, Bai Luo Yin moved to a spot around 10 meters away from Gu Hai. Then, he sat quietly while continuing to check on his float. His surroundings became a lot more quiet and peaceful, Bai Luo Yin’s condition also gradually recovered and his eyes became more focused on his float.

Suddenly, his float moved a bit.

“Da Hai ah Da Hai, is the place where I live. The sea breeze was blowing, the sea was surging…”

Gu Hai’s old phone suddenly rang, shocking the surrounding grasses until they swayed a few times. Bai Luo Yin’s grip loosened for a moment, so when he pulled up his float, he found out that he got nothing.

“Hello? Is this Li Shuo? Oh, I forgot to call you. I can’t go. Lu Lu is sick, so I have to see her…… What? Lu Lu is together with you guys? ……”

Bai Luo Yin held his temper and patiently waited until Gu Hai had finished his phone call, then he would throw the bait again.

“Da Hai ah Da Hai, is the place where I live, the sea breeze was blowing, the sea was surging…”

“Hello? Hu Zi? Aren’t you together with Li Shuo? ……. Together? If you’re together then, why did you call me again? Are you trying to annoy me on purpose? I’ll tell you this… I’m really busy.”

The float in front of Bai Luo Yin didn’t even stir a tiny bit.
