Chapter 92 – A YOUNG COUPLE buying furniture
Self-study time, the entire class was in a mess. They were talking with each other, fooling around, some students were playing with ball at the back of the class. It was really lively and noisy, just like a food market.
You Qi turned his body around and whispered to Bai Luo Yin, “Go home with me on Friday!”
“Go home with you? To Tianjin?”
You Qi nodded his head, “Yes, I always talk about you to my mother, she really wants to see you.”
Seeing You Qi’s mother, Bai Luo Yin felt really uneasy about it, he felt that he isn’t the type of person who would be liked by parents. All middle-aged people around 30-40 years old liked someone who’s really optimistic and lively, cheerful, and capable to do anything. He’s not really good at those aspects, usually when he went to his classmate’s house, he would just sit there with a cold face. People who didn’t know him would believe that he’s in the middle of demanding a debt payment!
“No need! One of these days if your mother is not around then I will go there for a couple of days.”
“Don’t be like that!” A sense of urgency appeared on You Qi’s handsome face, “It’s because my mother wants to see you that’s why I invited you.”
When Bai Luo Yin heard this one word “mother” he felt his head hurts.
“My mother’s cooked food tastes really good.”
When he heard this one word “food”, he became somewhat interested.
Gu Hai tapped on Bai Luo Yin’s back.
“What’s wrong?” Bai Luo Yin turned his head around.
Jealous Gu said, “Saturday let’s go to the furniture store together!”
“Furniture store? For what?” Bai Luo Yin had a puzzled expression on his face.
Gu Hai raised his eyebrow, “My new place still needs a lot of furniture, there are a lot of empty space, you’ve seen it before right?”
“Then just go by yourself, why did you ask me to go with you?”
Aren’t we going to live in that house together?… Gu Hai didn’t dare to say those words, he was afraid that if he said that, Bai Luo Yin wouldn’t want to go with him even more.
“You have good eyes, I would be happy if you come with me.”
Gu Hai’s overbearing gaze intimidated Bai Luo Yin’s heart, his inner clamour and hint were totally clear, if you dare to go to his house, I will definitely give him a very hard time!
As a matter of fact, Bai Luo Yin was already thinking to reject You Qi, but through this way, You Qi would definitely feel upset.
“Last week when I went home I told my mother already, and she prepared a lot of foods for you.”
Bai Luo Yin felt sorry towards You Qi, “Let’s do this then, I’ll buy a present for Aunt, please help me to give it to her and tell her if I have time on winter holiday, I definitely will go to your house.”
You Qi didn’t say anything.
After class, Yang Meng took out one pack of small raccoon instant noodles snack from his drawer, he chewed them pretty loudly. Suddenly he heard a loud shout that came from the back door, it scared him and made his hand trembled, his instant noodles dropped into broken bits.
“Yang Meng, I called you, come out quick!”
The whole class suddenly went into chaos. Every time You Qi came to find Yang Meng, a group of beautiful girls would come and interrogate him after that. Are you really close with You Qi? What food does he usually likes to eat? When you were together with him, was he cold and cruel too?…….
Yang Meng really wanted to shout, I’m not fucking close with him!
This time You Qi wasn’t like how he used to be, usually he would’ve stood at the doorway, waited for a certain girl telling Yang Meng to go out, and brought Yang Meng to him. After that he pulled Yang Meng to a corner and spoke with him. Rather, today he shouted at him full of anger, waited for him to come out quickly by himself, and scolded him agitatedly.
“Why are you just staying inside the classroom all day? As an adult can’t you go out for walk? Look at you, very shameful! You’re even wearing your jacket and tie like this! Aren’t you overeating? Look at your mouth, it’s fucking stained with the instant noodles dregs! Don’t you know that instant noodles is deep fried food? Don’t you know that deep fried food is not healthy? I’m telling you, I can see from your eyes that your heart is really dirty, you’re narrow-minded, you’re really good for nothing! Why are you looking at me? Can it purify you? You’re just like a stinky clogs beside the trash can, you’re just a big fool who’s just being noisy for whole day! Don’t think that I don’t know you did those rotten things! My heart is as clear as a mirror! You’re so shameless…..”
Yang Meng was dumbfounded, he was just sitting quietly inside the classroom, what did he do that provoked him?
You Qi’s face looked as if it was painted by a grey paint.
Yang Meng swayed his hand in front of You Qi’s face, “Hey brother, let me take you to the clinic and get some medicine for you, you can’t keep dragging it on like this!”
You Qi suddenly gripped Yang Meng’s shoulder, then dragged him to a dark and quiet corridor at the experiments building, there were archives room around them, with photographs of the previous headmasters hung on the walls.
Thick and heavy murderous atmosphere shrouded Yang Meng’s surrounding.
“What do you want..?” Yang Meng’s voice quivered.
You Qi grabbed Yang Meng’s neck, spoke with a threatening tone, “Go to my house to eat on Saturday!”
“You don’t have any reason to refuse!” You Qi said in a stern voice, then he used his finger to poke at Yang Meng’s forehead.
Yang Meng stunned, just how bad this kid had suffered a rejection?!
“Do you agree or not?” You Qi asked again.
“So you dare to reject me?!” You Qi poked Yang Meng’s forehead again.
Yang Meng hasn’t even speak one sentence for the whole time, yet You Qi had bombarded him with so many questions. Behind them was the picture of the first headmaster, a scholar from the final years of Qing dynasty, who fixed his gaze at two persons before his eyes.
Did I established this school just in order to let both of you come here and discuss these kind of things?
You Qi vented all of the anger inside his heart, he constrained himself for more than two months already, until today he finally found a target to express all of his disappointments. Weren’t you always treating me coldly? You never spare me your time, right? Fine, then I’ll just come and harass your friend everyday, I’ll always pick a quarrel with him everyday, until he couldn’t stand it anymore, then he will find you, and I will take advantage of him to retaliate Gu Hai too!
You Qi felt satisfied with his own stupid ideas.
When Yang Meng saw that You Qi didn’t speak, he couldn’t help but to open his mouth and ask, “That…. Yin zi didn’t come to school again?”
“He came!” You Qi straightened his collar, his expression became normal again, “He’s just sitting in the classroom.”
“Then why did you come and harass me?”
“Harassing you?” You Qi walked out while speaking, “I think there’s something wrong with your way of thinking.”
When they walked out from the experiments building, finally sunshine was upon them.
“There’s something wrong with your way of thinking?! If there’s nothing wrong with your way of thinking, then why did you wear your long johns on the wrong side huh! And you still have the face to fucking mock me! What’s wrong with the way I wear my jacket and tie? At least I don’t have my tie pulled all the way to my back!!”
Eh… You Qi suddenly lowered his head. That was when he noticed the thread residue hanging loose on his chest. The atmosphere surrounding them became awkward for a few seconds, then he pretended to not care about it and said, “This is called character.”
Yang Meng mocked, “Look at you living like this, you won’t even reach thirty years old.”
You Qi, “……”
Yang Meng walked back to the class while cursing in his mind: Fuck, I let him scolded me severely for no reason!
Weekend, at the furniture store.
Gu Hai stood in front of a sofa, he placed his hand on his chin while looking at it carefully, then he asked Bai Luo Yin: “What do you think about this one?”
Bai Luo Yin thought for a while, “This one is not bad, but I think it’s a little bit too big.”
“Is it? I think it’s just the right size.”
Bai Luo Yin sat on the sofa to try it for a while, “You see, even after I sat here it still has so much space left, you can even make this as a bed. Although your living room is big enough, but the interior style inside is quite reserved, if you put such a big sofa like this it would make the living room seems bold and carefree.”
“If you have a sofa this big, you can even roll on top of it as much as you want!”
Bai Luo Yin’s face darkened, “Isn’t people buying sofa to sit on it? If you just want to roll, then why don’t you just buy a huge bed?”
Gu Hai ignored the stare from the salesgirl, he smiled at Bai Luo Yin dubiously.
“Bed has bed taste, sofa has its own taste.”
Bai Luo Yin went silent for a while, he pretended not to hear about it and then walked away.
“I think you should buy more beds.” Bai Luo Yin suggested.
Gu Hai seemed confused, “Why should I get more beds?”
“You have a lot of friends. When they’re gathering at your house some day, you would be able to let them stay overnight!”
Gu Hai replied nonchalantly, “I never let anyone stay overnight at my place, especially guys.”
Bai Luo Yin slanted his gaze towards Gu Hai.
Gu Hai immediately realised his mistake, “You are an exception, you are my wife….”
“What did you say?” Bai Luo Yin flared up right away, he almost did a domestic violence session inside the store, “Gu Hai, the greatest flaw that your mother did is when she gave you that mouth!”
Gu Hai found out that Bai Luo Yin’s ear turned red.
Gu Hai felt really pleased inside, even though Bai Luo Yin scolded him, he felt happy. He thought, isn’t it bound to happen sooner or later? My wife, what are you shy about?!
“What do you think about this desk?” Gu Hai asked Bai Luo Yin again.
Bai Luo Yin shook his head, “I don’t like it. It’s too fancy, how about that one over there?”
“It’s too dull.” Gu Hai frowned his eyebrows.
“Then just buy this one.” Bai Luo Yin said, “It’s your home anyway, just buy what you like most.”
Gu Hai thought: That won’t do. I’m decorating this house just to attract you to come there, every furniture, every decoration, all of them should be according to your liking, if you don’t like them, why would I buy it?
“I want to buy that desk over there.”
