Translate: Estreline | Proofread: Sienna

Eleven o’clock at night, after Bai Han Qi finished taking a shower, with a towel hanging on his shoulder and the water still dripping, he went inside Bai Luo Yin’s room.

“When you go to sleep, don’t forget to lock the courtyard door.”

Bai Luo Yin nodded, his eyes were fixed on his computer screen.

Bai Han Qi went inside his room. Suddenly, Bai Luo Yin slammed his hand at the keyboard and glared at

his computer screen in anger. Dead again! What happened today, when I played the game I either die or the game lags, I’m not playing anymore! Bai Luo Yin stood up, kicked his stool away and went out.

The moon was so beautiful, it’s so round and bright, when Bai Luo Yin glanced at it, he felt like spitting on it.

Fuck, who told you to be so round tonight! [1]

The door was still wide open, Bai Luo Yin picked up the rusty lock, it felt so cold, causing his hand to freeze when he held it.

The door was barely shut close when suddenly, a large force pushed it open again.

“Don’t lock the door.”

Suddenly, a face appeared at his door and caused Bai Luo Yin to freeze in place.

Gu Hai just appeared out of nowhere, his face was travel-worn and weary [2]. The moment he saw Bai Luo Yin, he simply pulled him into a tight embrace without saying anything.

Bai Luo Yin smelled the scent of exhaustion from Gu Hai’s body. His heart was beating fast and violently, it made Bai Luo Yin’s heartbeat become unsteady too.

When Gu Hai hugged Bai Luo Yin, he felt that his heart is now complete. After he visited his late mother’s grave, Gu Hai’s mood became extremely depressed, that he almost jumped into the city moat [3]. On his way to Bai Luo Yin’s house, he was running all the way, afraid that Bai Luo Yin had already locked the door, afraid that he won’t be able to see Bai Luo Yin. At this very moment, only this place, only this person, who can make him feel like he isn’t alone.

After a long silence, Bai Luo Yin muttered, “I thought you’ve died outside!”

Gu Hai heaved a long sigh of relief, “When I hear you mocking at me, it feels really good.”

Bai Luo Yin suppressed his urges to bear old grudges in his heart, how can he just forgive Gu Hai easily? When he saw Gu Hai holding him tightly, it was hard for him to push him away, so he mercilessly punched Gu Hai’s weak spot in his waist, sending him flying one meter away.

“Fuck off! You’ve had enough fun outside, and now you still want to disturb other people’s sleep!”

Gu Hai couldn’t even catch his breath from the pain he felt, when he saw that Bai Luo Yin wanted to close the door again, he placed himself between the door, then stared at Bai Luo Yin with his dark eyes,

“I’m not going anywhere tonight. I’m staying here.”

“You’re staying here?” Bai Luo Yin snorted coldly, “If you’re paying then I might consider letting you sleep in the pigsty.”

Gu Hai laughed straight away. Using a little bit of strength, he finally squeezed inside the door. He stroked the back of Bai Luo Yin’s head and said with a persuasive tone, “Enough, enough. Don’t be angry anymore. It’s my fault, okay? I shouldn’t have left without saying anything and made you keep on worrying about me. It’s already this late and you’re still awake, waiting for me.”

Bai Luo Yin threw Gu Hai’s hand away, pulling out two strands of his hair along with it, “Don’t be such a disgusting person, can you? Who the fuck you said waited for you?!”

“Then why didn’t you lock the door? I remember those past two days when I stayed at your place, you would’ve locked it already by 9 PM.”

Bai Luo Yin’s anger finally erupted and he even lifted his legs. Gu Hai couldn’t care less, he firmly marched forward and pulled Bai Luo Yin into a tight embrace, they fit together perfectly, not even leaving any space between them.

“Yinzi, don’t be angry anymore, can you? I just came back from my mother’s grave. My heart is in a mess. Can’t you give in to me just this one time?”

At last, Bai Luo Yin’s stiff body gradually went lax and warm under Gu Hai’s soft and deep voice.

After they entered the room, Gu Hai placed a box on the table.

“I bought a moon cake for you.”

Although Bai Luo Yin let Gu Hai inside, his icy expression remained the same.

“Just eat it by yourself.”

Gu Hai opened the moon cake box, he said to Bai Luo Yin with the seductive tone, “I specially ordered them to make it for you, you really don’t want to try it?”

“I don’t care who you made it for, I said I don’t want to eat it so…..”

When Bai Luo Yin turned his head, suddenly a huge piece of moon cake appeared before his eyes.

It is as big as a whole pizza!

There were four large words carved on top of the moon cake, egg yolk lotus paste, the moon cake was so full and round, rich and plump, the color was captivating, and there was a faint sweet fragrance coming out from the cover box.

“I ran through few stores, and only this one store accepted my request, don’t look down on this moon cake, it definitely has a high degree of difficulty! Normally speaking, it’s really hard to make, even just with 4 egg yolks, the problem is that the mold is very hard to find), the crucial point is that the yolk filling is not easy to stick together if you’re not careful then it will fall apart. I can assure you that this moon cake has no less 12 egg yolks inside, I guarantee even if you just eat one you would feel full already.”

Gu Hai said it with a radiant delight [4] when Bai Luo Yin heard it, his heart shivered slightly.

“Are you a fool? Isn’t it enough that you only buy a few pieces? Why did you have to buy the big one?”

“It’s not the same.” Gu Hai looked at Bai Luo Yin with a faint smile, “Our appetites are really big, and I wanted to eat one with you, so this is the most suitable size for us.”

Bai Luo Yin wore a scoffing expression, his eyes were like a fork, staring fiercely right at Gu Hai.

Fortunately, Gu Hai understood Bai Luo Yin enough, he didn’t wait for Bai Luo Yin to open his mouth on his own and simply shoved one slice into Bai Luo Yin’s mouth.

Bai Luo Yin hesitated for a bit, but he still opened his mouth.

He took one bite, it is so soft and spongy, he can taste all the light and different flavors, the taste is just like his feelings for the past two days. [5]

Translator’s Note:

[1] Round full moon usually represents completeness. When Bai Luo Yin cursed at the full moon, it can be said that he felt emptiness and loneliness in his heart.

[2] ‘his face was travel-worn and weary’: the literal translation is supposed to be ‘his face was covered in dust’, however, this phrase is actually a Chinese idiom which means  ‘weary after a long journey’.

[3] ‘he almost jumped into the city moat’: moat is a deep, wide trench which is usually filled with water and surrounds the wall of a fortified place (e.g. castles, towns). In this chapter, the ‘city moat’ refers to the famous moat (6-m deep, 52-m wide) surrounding the Forbidden City in Beijing.

[4] ‘with a radiant delight’: the literal translation is ‘with dancing eyebrows and radiant face’.

[5] ‘just like his feelings for the past two days’: refers to the two days when Gu Hai left without a word, resulting in Bai Luo Yin having these mixed feelings.
