Addicted: Chapter 44

Are you possessed?

“You… you live in this place?”

Once she got off the bike and returned to reality, this daughter of an affluent family was immediately incapable of remaining calm and collected.

Jin Lu Lu walked inside with a frown and scrutinized the surroundings. In a small house with a fully enclosed courtyard, there were more than people living there. In front of them, a woman was in the middle of coaxing her crying son who had fallen head first into a somersault, evidence by the dirt covering his head. The sound of his wailing voice, as if someone had placed blade at his throat, made everyone around him felt rather uncomfortable.

“Ah… pei…”

Following that sound, Jin Lu Lu turned her head only to an older man had spit a mouthful of phlegm near her feet.

When Gu Hai opened his door, Jin Lu Lu’s footsteps froze in front of the entrance.

The dark room was no more than ten meters square, and inside was a single bed, a television that was less than 20 inches in length and a small table with the paint peeling off inside the room. Even worse, when she finally entered, her nostril was immediately attacked by a damp and moldy smell.

“People actually live in this place?” Jin Lu Lu used her hand to rub her arm.

Gu Hai poured himself a glass of water and drank it before pouring another glass for Jin Lu Lu.

“Why wouldn’t people live here? I’ve lived with the army for so many years, the condition there wasn’t that much better, but I still pulled through.”

Jin Lu Lu expressed her disagreement, “But this place… isn’t it too shabby?”

“There are no good houses in this neighborhood.”

Jin Lu Lu pulled Gu Hai to sit down while putting on an expression that clearly exclaiming she was not able to accept this condition.

“Do you really have to find a place in this area? There are so many nice apartments near the school that you can certainly choose from! Why do you insist on staying just to suffer?”

“I like this neighborhood.”

“What… what is good about it?”

“It’s peaceful.”

Unable to accept that excuse, Jin Lu Lu questioned him further. “Your dad didn’t give you any allowance?”

Gu Hai lit a stick of cigarette and smoked it silently.

When Jin Lu Lu saw Gu Hai’s current appearance, a burst of pain raced into her chest.

“If you really don’t have any money, you can ask me! Aren’t Li Shuo and Hu Zi both wealthy? Even if they can’t take out a few hundred thousand, but ten thousand or so wouldn’t be a big deal, right? Just use it to rent a better place, okay? Do you really need to degrade yourself to this extend? Besides, a lean camel that dies of starvation is still bigger than a horse.[1] Although your dad didn’t give you any allowance, don’t you always have some in your savings?”

“I want to live here. It doesn’t have anything to do with money.”

Choking and coughing from the smoke, Jin Lu Lu quickly went to open the old window when she suddenly saw an old model phone not too far off.

“Don’t tell me that you use that phone to receive my call every day?”

“Yeah, that’s what I used.”

Hearing those words, Jin Lu Lu wanted to cry. “No wonder! No matter how loud I speak, the signal was never good!!”

Gu Hai took off his shoes and got on the bed with both his hands resting behind his head as he stared up at the ceiling.

Jin Lu Lu wandered around the room without much interest, there’s really nothing good here, she thought to herself before she started to look through Gu Hai’s schoolbag.

Aside from books, there were nothing else in there.

Apparently, there’s really no sign of him having any luck with the ladies.

“Hey, how come you write your name completely different from what I had designed?” Jin Lu Lu looked at Gu Hai angrily.

All of a sudden, Gu Hai leaped from the bed and walked up to where Jin Lu Lu was with a peculiar ray of light beaming from his eyes.

“Let me show you something.”

Jin Lu Lu stood beside him with great expectations, wanting to know what kind of treasure he possessed to make him so excited like that.

“Look at the handwritings on these two papers, are they similar?”

Jin Lu Lu picked up the papers and examined them closely. On one paper was Bai Luo Yin’s handwriting and on the other was Gu Hai’s imitation of Bai Luo Yin’s handwriting.

“It’s not similar,” Jin Lu Lu told Gu Hai very objectively, “It’s completely different.”

Gu Hai was unable to accept that answer as both of his dashing brows pulled tightly together.

“Is there really no part that even a bit similar? Don’t look at the shape of character, mainly look at the style. Look at the style, do you get it?”

“No matter what I look at, it still doesn’t look similar.”

Wearing a calm and collected expression, Gu Hai took the paper and threw them on the table without saying anything else.

Jin Lu Lu was completely amused by Gu Hai’s expression. She has been with Gu Hai for three years already, and not once had she ever seen him become so anxious because of such a trivial matter. The current Gu Hai truly looked like a seventeen years old teenager who couldn’t bear to witness even a bit of his own flaw.

Only Gu Hai himself knew that practically all of his spare time was devoted to practicing that handwriting.

That night, the two squeezed together on that small bed to sleep.

Smelling the enchanting body scent on Gu Hai, Jin Lu Lu narrowed her eyes faintly and kissed his chin lightly.

Gu Hai placed his hand on Jin Lu Lu’s back and caressed it gently.

With that, Jin Lu Lu softly bit Gu Hai’s ear and her heated breath spread to the side of his face.

Gu Hai’s enticingly smooth chest tightened a bit as his powerful legs wrapped around Jin Lu Lu, turning her over so that she was beneath him. As if spellbound, Jin Lu Lu laughed and hooked her arms around Gu Hai’s neck.

“Say…”

“What is it?” Jin Lu Lu gazed at Gu Hai affectionately.

A bewitched smile appeared at the corner of Gu Hai’s lips.

“If a bad-tempered person like Bai Luo Yin sleep with another person, what would he look like? Would he also cry out in pleasure? Would he also burst out in curses from time to time?…”

As Gu Hai talked, his sight started to drift away from their romantic setting.

Jin Lu Lu caressed Gu Hai’s forehead gently and asked, “Are you being possessed?”

“Huh?”

“Go to sleep!”

Jin Lu Lu retorted bitterly and turned over, completely ignoring Gu Hai.
