After Jin Lu Lu kicked the chair and left the restaurant, their surrounding suddenly fell into a deep silence.

After a long time passed, Bai Luo Yin then asked Gu Hai, “Why did you make her angry?”

Gu Hai’s dark face brightened up, “Why do you say that i made her angry? Didn’t you see how shameless she was? No need to indulge that bad habit of her, just let her go if she fucking wants to go!”

“Both of you are really….” Bai Luo Yin felt helpless, “How did you two even got together in the first place?”

Gu Hai was on the side, trying to contain his anger under control! He wasn’t in the mood to answer that kind of question.

Bai Luo Yin sighed, then he stirred the remaining noodles in his bowl, lightly said, “Okay, just calm down a bit for now, that’s not a good thing if you’re always fighting with each other.”

Gu Hai put the remaining cuttlefish ball on Bai Luo Yin’s bowl, and then he finished his noodles cleanly.

Both of them went out from the restaurant in silence.


After they arrived at home, Bai Luo Yin tossed a box to Gu Hai.

“What is this?” Gu Hai was somewhat surprised. “Is this for me?”

“What a nonsense! I gave it to you, if it isn’t for you then who is it for?”

Gu Hai opened the box to look at it, then he saw a phone with the newest model on market, the model and appearance of the phone were really Gu Hai’s taste, he didn’t even have to guess to know that this phone was chosen by Bai Luo Yin. There was an unspeakable feelings in Gu Hai’s heart, when he saw Bai Luo Yin’s figure moving around beside him, he didn’t know how to express his feelings, he simply embraced him right away.

“Yin Zi, you’re too good to me.”

“Go hug my dad!” Bai Luo Yin halfheartedly pushed Gu Hai away, “It was his money, he was the one who really wanted to buy it for you, no matter how many times I stopped him.”

Gu Hai shouted straight away to Bai Han Qi outside the window.

“Uncle, thank you!”

“This kid, why do you thank me?” Bai Han Qi wiped the sweats on his forehead with his clothes. “If Yin Zi didn’t go with me, I wouldn’t know which phone I should buy. For me, if a phone can be used to call, and if it doesn’t break down even after it fell down, that should be good enough already. But Yin Zi said, it won’t do! He insisted to give you a full featured phone.”

Gu Hai felt like honey was flowing out from his heart.

“You don’t have to listen to Yin Zi, he didn’t know what he was talking about!”

Bai Luo Yin kicked Gu Hai’s butt, “You dare to say that even after getting this phone?”

Gu Hai happily looked at Bai Luo Yin, “Then how about you? You don’t have a cell phone too…..”

“What would I use it for?” Bai Luo Yin gave a nonchalant expression, “I simply don’t have anyone i want to contact, having a phone would be a waste.”

“You can contact me!” Gu Hai moved closer to Bai Luo Yin’s front side.

Bai Luo Yin grinded his teeth, “You always stick beside me for 24 hours everyday, do i still need phone to contact you?”

Gu Hai laughed hollowly, “That’s also true, but now I don’t have anyone I want to contact too, thereby this phone is also a waste for me.”

“Don’t!” Bai Luo Yin glanced at Gu Hai, “I want to use this phone to divert your attention from me!”

Gu Hai’s mouth moved closer to Bai Luo Yin’s ears, his voice was deep, yet so charming.

“Then won’t you really hate this phone later?”

Bai Luo Yin immediately shouted ‘scram’ five times in a row! Then he kicked Gu Hai out from the room.

Gu Hai swayed around for a while outside, he saw Bai Hanqi was setting a ladder on the wall, he was puffing hard while trying to climb the ladder.

“Uncle, why are you climbing so high?”

“Two days ago it was raining, the roof leaked a bit, so the good dried grains got wet again, I’m going up to patch it.”

“Uncle, just go down, I’ll go up.”

“How do you know how to do this kind of thing?”

Bai Han Qi wiped his sweats, today is really a sunny day, the afternoon sun was shining upon them.

“I really can do it, uncle, just come down.”

Between the talks, Gu Hai stepped on the windowsill, his hand grabbed the eaves, then he tumbled his body and jumped until he got on the roof, what was that ladder for then?

When Bai Han Qi saw it, his eyes went stiff, he thought to himself, what did this kid just do to go up? Just now he was still talking on the ground, how can he just flew to the roof in a short time?

“Uncle, I’m here.”

In fact, when Bai Han Qi was young, his physical condition was excellent too, he didn’t even need to do an extra efforts to climb up and down the roof, but now he’s old, his limbs aren’t agile anymore, he also has a little bit fear of height.

“Can you really do it?” Bai Han Qi gave a doubtful expression.

“Seeing you said those word, I…..”

Gu Hai wanted to say that he has done everything when he was in army before, but he was afraid that Bai Han Qi would ask a lot of things, so he didn’t say anything else, he rather took the bucket from Bai Han Qi’s hand, flattened the mud and the cement paste skillfully, although it wasn’t as good as a bricklayer’s works, but apparently it was done pretty well.

Bai Luo Yin walked outside, then shouted towards the roof.

“Dad, just go down, just let him do it, otherwise he would just be a freeloader at our house everyday!”

“Right, uncle, just go down!”

Bai Han Qi smiled then he agreed, he carefully went to the eaves, then he stretched his leg out to reach the ladder.

Gu Hai saw a phone poking out from Bai Han Qi’s trousers pocket, it was a phone that had been used for many years, some of the coating paint on top has been scraped off. Once Gu Hai saw it, he just knew that phone is an imitation phone that has been bought from street vendors, with a price no more than 200 yuan. When he thought about his own phone, Gu Hai’s heart felt really upset.

Bai Luo Yin never talked about his family condition, just occasionally after they went drinking, then he would mention it once or twice. Bai Han Qi’s wages is less than 5 thousands per month, and he has to feed the whole family, every month Bai Luo Yin’s grandfather and grandmother has a fixed medical treatment expense too. These things cut down more than half of his income already, besides their own food and drink expenses, now they have to feed him too…. Even if Bai Han Qi didn’t say it, Gu Hai knew it, he must be clenching his teeth to buy this phone.
