Look, isn’t he pitiful?

After school ended, Bai Luo Yin was packing up his school bag when his shoulders were pulled back by someone until his body leaned backwards. He asked, “What’s up?”
“Let’s eat lunch together, my girlfriend’s treat.”
Bai Luo Yin paused, “Why are you dragging me along when she came to see you? I’m not going to be a third wheel.”
“We’re like an old married couple, would there actually be such refined feelings left? If I tell you to go then just go, why are you wasting time?”
Without any explanation, Gu Hai stood up and simply dragged Bai Luo Yin out with him.
Jin Lu Lu was already standing outside when she saw Bai Luo Yin come out. She smiled brightly, “I’ve already found a good restaurant, we can go there by taxi.”
The three went to a restaurant that specialized dishes that dealt mainly with bone, and the signature dish was lamb spine hot pot. Jin Lu Lu was really fond of eating lamb; it was to the point that she could eat every single part of it. For a refined girl like herself, she was extremely infatuated with the taste and smell of mutton— just the aroma alone would get her saliva working.
“Sitting here is okay.”
Jin Lu Lu took the menu, then ordered all kinds of dish.
The lamb spine hot pot was very delicious, but it was quite hard to bite into. When Bai Luo Yin noticed that the people around him ate with poor table manners, he could not help but to smile. He truly admired Jin Lu Lu since most girls would be afraid to eat lamb spine hot pot with their boyfriend.
The three were talking and laughing when one lamb spine hot pot arrived at their table. Jin Lu Lu rubbed her hands before the chopstick moved continuously in her bowl. Her focused appearance was akin to that of a child, entirely different from the person who fought at their school.
Gu Hai’s chopsticks were moving around inside the pot when he suddenly found a lamb’s tail. Everyone who had eaten lamb spine hot pot definitely knew that lamb’s tail meat was the most delicious part.
Jin Lu Lu blinked excitedly.
Gu Hai took out the lamb’s tail from the pot and then put it into Bai Luo Yin’s bowl.
“Try this, it tastes pretty good.”
That kind of action felt like it had happened many times before, that it had become a habit. Gu Hai had somehow forgotten about the person next to him, whose favorite food was the lamb’s tail when he casually gave what she liked to someone else.
All girls were sensitive, even though she might not care about her outer appearance.
“You’re so biased!”
Gu Hai and Bai Luo Yin lifted their heads.
“I love to eat lamb’s tail, too.” Jin Lu Lu said while pointing at Bai Luo Yin’s bowl.
“Well, isn’t that easy to deal with?” Gu Hai called the waiter, “Give us one more pot of lamb’s tail.”
“If you only want to order the lamb’s tail, you have to pay extra since it’s a premium item.”
Jin Lu Lu waved her hand toward the waiter, then looked at Gu Hai, “I don’t want another pot of lamb’s tail, I only want to eat the one you just took out.”
What she actually meant was, I only want to eat the lamb’s tail that you just gave to Bai Luo Yin.
Bai Luo Yin laughed as he suddenly remembered Shi Hui, it was as if all the girls in the world were like that.
“Here, for you. I haven’t bit it yet.”
Bai Luo Yin gave it to Jin Lu Lu.
Jin Lu Lu winked at Gu Hai as if she was giving him a signal; one can perfectly imagine her very smug expression.
When he saw that the most delicious part was in Jin Lu Lu’s bowl, Gu Hai suddenly felt awfully upset. But the particular reason as to why he was so upset was unclear to him. After that, he gave a lot of food to Bai Luo Yin, but no matter how much food he gave him, he still felt that Bai Luo Yin had been wronged and that he did not eat well enough. That kind of feeling kept bothering him until the bottom of the pot could be seen.
“Are you full already?” Gu Hai asked.
Bai Luo Yin was almost full to bursting already. He secretly pondered why Gu Hai was acting so crazy today that he kept on placing food into his bowl. Moreover, he also asked whether he was full or not, as if afraid that other people did not know that Bai Luo Yin’s appetite was really big.
“Why are you so talkative?” Bai Luo Yin wiped his mouth.
Gu Hai went silent for a while, then he shifted his attention to Jin Lu Lu.
“Are you full?”
Jin Lu Lu snorted, “So you still care about me, huh?”
Bai Luo Yin suddenly inserted a joke.
“There is no need for you to become jealous with the relationship between us guys.”
Hearing that, Jin Lu Lu laughed out loud immediately. In fact, she was not really angry, she understood Gu Hai’s temper. They had been together for three years already, whenever she was together with him and his friends, Gu Hai would always put his buddies before her too, it was just that he showed it off too much this time.
“Hey, I want to ask you something!”
Although Jin Lu Lu was talking to Bai Luo Yin, but her gaze was actually fixed on Gu Hai.
Before Jin Lu Lu could ask her question, Bai Luo Yin had already opened his mouth to answer. “He doesn’t have any girlfriend in the school. You do not have to worry.”
Jin Lu Lu was surprised as her eyes widened, “How did you know what I wanted to ask?”
Gu Hai, who was beside him, replied, “He also had a girlfriend before.”
Weirdly enough, Jin Lu Lu unexpectedly heard a hint of jealousy in Gu Hai’s sentence.
After they exited the restaurant, Jin Lu Lu quietly warned Bai Luo Yin, “Help me to look after him a bit. I will give you my phone number, so when something happens just give me a call.”
Bai Luo Yin merely smiled without a word.
Gu Hai pushed his bike and glanced at Bai Luo Yin.
“Are you going or not?”
Bai Luo Yin walked straight pass Gu Hai and said a few words to him.
“Did you come here without your brain today?”
Fortunately, when Gu Hai used his eyes to give a signal to Bai Luo Yin a moment ago, Jin Lu Lu was in the middle of bending her body to fix her trousers. When she lifted up her head again, she smiled brightly at Gu Hai.
Gu Hai stepped on his pedals, but his gaze was fixed on Bai Luo Yin, who was gradually getting further away from them.
Jin Lu Lu sat excitedly on the backseat of the bike. Even though she didn’t have much room to sit, that kind of refreshing feeling caused all of her bad mood to disappear as she placed her hands on Gu Hai’s waist. Her face was glowing with excitement— every girl has a romantic dream, and that dream often started with riding a bicycle. Countless luxurious cars would not be able to compare to the beautiful scenery and broad back. That was truly the feeling of youthfulness, spreading along the narrow and winding road with a sweet scent that belonged only to him blooming quietly— it was impossible to get rid of it for a long time.
The speed of the bike was very slow, but they were gradually getting closer to the figure in front of them.
Bai Luo Yin was walking on the road with his shoulders as broad as before, a straight back and strong and vigorous steps…. but in Gu Hai’s eyes, he felt that Bai Luo Yin was kind of lonely.
When Gu Hai rode to Bai Luo Yin’s side, Jin Lu Lu coughed deliberately. That made him turn his head to look at them before he smiled at Jin Lu Lu.
During that brief moment when they brushed past each other, Gu Hai suddenly accelerated his speed.
With one of her hand hugging Gu Hai’s waist, Jin Lu Lu let her other hand spread out to feel the wind as she shouted loudly.
“This is my first time riding a bike, it feels really great!”
The two words that Gu Hai said all of a sudden, puzzled Jin Lu Lu.
Gu Hai faintly replied, “Don’t you think Bai Luo Yin is really pitiful?”
“He’s pitiful?” Jin Lu Lu was even more confused, “Why is he pitiful?”
“You are riding a bike, he is walking, don’t you think he’s really pitiful?”
Jin Lu Lu felt that Gu Hai’s words were unreasonable.
“He’s a man. What’s so pitiful about walking just a few steps?”
Gu Hai didn’t say anything else.
Jin Lu Lu pinched Gu Hai’s waist, “Why have I never known before that you could care so much about someone?”
Gu Hai lowered his tone.
“How many times have I warned you already? Do not pinch my waist.”
Jin Lu Lu rolled her eyes toward the sky, feeling extremely angry. She waved her fingers with the intention of hugging Gu Hai again, but she didn’t dare do it. She knew Gu Hai’s temper, he lacked patience and tolerance the most. If she wanted to stay with him for a long time, the most important thing was for her to be obedient and sensible.
