During class, You Qi turned around and gave a piece of paper to Bai Luo Yin.

Bai Luo Yin opened it for a look, it’s written: “Last weekend when I went home, I saw Gu Hai’s girlfriend together with another man, they seemed quite intimate. I didn’t dare to tell Gu Hai, tell him yourself.”

Bai Luo Yin gripped the paper in his hand, between his fingers, Gu Hai hasn’t contacted Jin Lu Lu for two weeks already.

Gu Hai used his finger to tap Bai Luo Yin’s back twice, Bai Luo Yin leaned his body and saw Gu Hai stretched his hand over.

“Give that piece of paper to me!”

Bai Luo Yin lowered his voice, “Why should I show it to you? You Qi gave it to me!”

It’s because he gave it to you, that’s why I have to see it!! Gu Hai groaned in his mind, what do you two have to say that you can’t even say it directly? Even sneakily passing notes!!

Bai Luo Yin hesitated, then he wrote a note and passed it to Gu Hai.

“Your girlfriend ran away with another man.”

Gu Hai’s expression changed.

After class was dismissed, Bai Luo Yin turned his head around and saw Gu Hai was on his phone, don’t know who is he sending message to.

“You haven’t contact Jin Lu Lu for two weeks already.” Bai Luo Yin said.

Gu Hai only hummed once, his eyes was unusually calm, “Now I can’t contact her too, I’m texting Hu Zi and Li Shuo, asking them whether they have any information about Lu Lu or not.”

After a while, Gu Hai’s phone rang, then he went outside to pick it up.

Bai Luo Yin’s understood it clearly in his heart, this Jin Lu Lu, she’s definitely playing hard to get. [1]

When Gu Hai walked back to the classroom, his face was rather disappointed.

“I’ll go to Tianjin in the afternoon, I won’t be able to go back to class, help me to ask for a leave.”

Bai Luo Yin nodded his head, “Okay, I know.”

Bai Luo Yin barely turned his body back, when Gu hai tapped his shoulder again.

“Wait for me to come back tonight!”

Bai Luo Yin was silent.

Gu Hai didn’t force Bai Luo Yin to nod, then Gu Hai packed all of his things and went out from the back door.


Gu Hai came to find Jin Lu Lu, usually when it’s time after school is dismissed, Jin Lu Lu is always surrounded by some girls, and every time they saw Gu Hai, their eyes would be enticed by him. Because he couldn’t stand their sultry glances and silly questions, Gu Hai usually chose to park at the east gate under the old locust tree. When he has no phone, Jin Lu Lu would come there immediately to find Gu Hai, as time passed, it has became a habit for Jin Lu Lu, when she went out from the school gate she would always immediately look toward the tree.

Gu Hai went inside the school building, it was exactly the school ends time, students were chatting in groups at a certain corner, it seemed like there wasn’t any nervous atmosphere like in an ordinary school, like a large part of their future is settled already.

Gu Hai arrived at Jin Lu Lu’s class entrance, a familiar girl went outside the class. When she saw Gu Hai, she was surprised.

“You…. Why did you come here?”

Gu Hai just asked without any expression, “Where is Jin Lu Lu?”

“She isn’t in the class, she went out already.”

Gu Hai turned his body around and left.

That girl nudged the other girl beside her, “What’s with this condition? Didn’t they… break up already?”

“I don’t know either!”


Gu Hai finally saw Jin Lu Lu at the entrance of a cold beverage shop as she went out from the store with a guy, talking and laughing. The guy was holding the bag for her, she was playing around with his wallet. Everyone who saw them would be able to see, there was something between them.

When Jin Lu Lu leaned her head to talk to the guy beside her for a split second, she finally glimpsed at Gu Hai.

Gu Hai gazed coldly at the two people before his eyes.

Jin Lu Lu quickly shifted her gaze from Gu Hai, she acted as if she didn’t saw him, then she openly pulled the guy’s arm closer and walked away in front of Gu Hai’s eyes.

Gu Hai didn’t get angry when he saw both of them, he didn’t grab the guy by the collar nor hit him, because he knew it clearly, this is the exact scene that Jin Lu Lu wants to see. He simply went back to his car under the old locust tree, sat inside the car and silently took a cigarette out. He wanted to think calmly about it, whether in the end, he wants to continue this relationship or not.

After school, Jin Lu Lu and that man walked out, they were hesitating for a while at the school entrance, then both of them went inside the same car.

Gu Hai followed their car from behind, and soon, the car stopped in front of a hotel.

Gu Hai saw them went inside with cold eyes.

After two hours, the sky darkened and Gu Hai went down from the car.

“Miss, can you check for me, is there anyone called Jin Lu Lu staying here?”

The front desk skillfully searched the customer list on the computer, then she smiled and nodded towards Gu Hai.

“Hello, there is Miss Jin Lu Lu’s booking record here.”

Although Gu Hai prepared his heart already, but when he really heard it for sure, his brain went into a buzz, his mind suddenly exploded in a flash.

The front desk called Jin Lu Lu’s room, but there was no answer.

Gu Hai got the room number from the front desk, then he took the elevator. He kept on consoling himself, do not act on impulse, do not get angry, you only need to confirm a reason to break up, then just turn around and go!

Nevertheless, when he stood in front of the door, none of the suggestions just now were effective!

Bang! The entire floor quivered.

Gu Hai didn’t knock, rather he kicked it several times, and then he immediately kicked the door lock until it opened.

The guy was only wearing underpants, shaking, Jin Lu Lu was laying on the bed, her body was covered with a quilt. She seemed like she had expected Gu Hai to come since the beginning, and compared to the guy’s flustered face, she looks very composed.

Gu Hai’s voice was calm, yet it’s terrifying.

“Jin Lu Lu, we haven’t broke up yet.”

Jin Lu Lu laughed coldly, there was a cigarette between her fingers, she smoked slowly.

“We’re still together? Why didn’t I feel like that?”

Gu Hai didn’t speak, the room was terribly calm, the guy bent over to find his clothes, Gu Hai walked to him and then kicked his nape, his face suddenly turned white, twitching nonstop on the floor.

Jin Lu Lu was actually satisfied that their matter has developed this way. She felt happy, even if Gu Hai came over and slapped her twice, she is willing to accept it. You, Gu Hai, still care about me? You’re still jealous? So, you also know the feeling that when your superiority is deprived by another person is really hard to bear, right?

“I just don’t like you anymore, why do you have to find another reason to make me feel disgusted with you?”

Jin Lu Lu’s expression changed.

“I’m disgusting? Yes!… I’m disgusting… I’m telling you Gu Hai, I fucking did a lot more disgusting things! I’ve slept with him since long time ago! You think you picked a cheap woman for yourself? I’m telling you, even before I got together with you, I wasn’t a virgin already!”

After a burst of hysterical scream, there was a long silence.

There was no emotion in Gu Hai’s eyes.

“We are over.”

After he said that, Gu Hai turned his body and leave.

We are over?…

Those three words, were like three heavy hammers, suddenly hitting Jin Lu Lu’s heart. She found out, when the real thing happened, those previous brave words from her were merely flying ashes and smoldering smoke. She didn’t want this kind of outcome, she was really scared with this kind of outcome. Break up…. What a cruel thing.

Jin Lu Lu practically threw herself on the floor, the sheet and the quilt went down with her as well, she suddenly hugged Gu Hai’s legs, crying loudly with hoarse throat, as if that arrogant face just now wasn’t hers.

“Da Hai… I lied to you, they say men are cheap, only the one that couldn’t be obtained is the best one. I just want you to feel jealous, I just want you to feel a sense of crisis, I want you to pay more attention to me… I’m only putting on an act with him, nothing more. He doesn’t like me at all, I don’t like him as well, we did it all just for you to see…”

Gu Hai glanced at Jin Lu Lu for the last time, “Go back to bed, you’re wearing too little, you’ll get cold.”

Jin Lu Lu terrifyingly looked down at herself, she was only dressed in underwear.

“Da…. Hai….”

She still hadn’t said the second word, when she heard a sound of the door closing.


Gu Hai drove his car, speeding along the highway, a cold and stern expression drew the outline of Gu Hai’s dim and gloomy face. Dark trees and dim street lamps, one by one car passed his car from behind. Gu Hai didn’t know how many times he turned on the road, until his entire heart was enveloped in a huge curtain of darkness, and the chill in the air can be felt upon his fingertips, only then he discovered that he forgot to roll the window up.

Gu Hai drove until he arrived at an unfamiliar street, he parked his car in front of a shop, resting his

head upon the steering wheel, gradually falling asleep. He didn’t realize how long he has slept, when he opened his eyes, all the shops on that street were closed already, only KFC remained open, with several homeless people sat inside.

The cell phone on the front passenger seat was ringing, Gu Hai picked it up to take a look, then he saw an unfamiliar number.

“Are you still coming back or not?”

Gu Hai hadn’t answered yet, when the other side hung up the call.

The phone screen displayed 2:51.

Gu Hai put down the phone, he leaned his head on the car seat, then closed his eyes, pondering over every words just now.

His lost soul returned in a flash.

He turned the car around, a huge amount of happiness struck his heart.


Translator’s Note:

[1] 欲擒故: is an idiom that means to loosen the reins only to grasp them better. So in order to capture Gu Hai, Jin Lu Lu let him loose first.

  1. As far as I know, hotels don’t give any information about their guests to strangers, at least in Europe.
