Addicted: Chapter 94

Two evil boys make money

Translator: Estreline

“I’ve spent all of my money.”

Upon hearing Gu Hai said that, Bai Luo Yin didn’t think that it was unexpected at all.

“Look at how you spent your money. No matter how much money you have, it will never enough.”

“Did I waste my money?” Gu Hai complained, “I’ve furnished my house, right? Furnishing house needs money. And doesn’t my daily life needs money too? Right now I don’t have any income, I just have expenses. I’ve spent all of my savings too.”

Bai Luo Yin looked at Gu Hai.

“Doesn’t your father give you money?”

“He does, but I don’t want it.”

“Why not?” Bai Luo Yin was bewildered. “He’s your father. Aren’t you supposed to use his money?”

“It’s my fault. When I left his house, I said to him that I don’t want his money, not even one cent. Although our relationship is better now, I said it already. I haven’t received any money from him for the past two months, I’m used to this kind of life already, I’ll feel embarrassed if I ask him for money now.”

“You’re still being polite with your father?”

Gu Hai didn’t say anything.

Bai Luo Yin gave a sideways glance at Gu Hai, “Are you still holding grudges on him?”

“I will bear grudges on him for my whole life.”

“Have you ever think that it was all just a misunderstanding, perhaps she passed away because of an accident? I’m not siding with anyone, I just want you to investigate this matter clearly. Such a dubious hatred like this, it would only make you suffer more. Your mother is gone, you just have one family member left now.”

Gu Hai went silent for a while, then he pulled Bai Luo Yin’s hand and lightly said, “Let’s not talk about this anymore, let’s talk about how to solve my financial problem.”

“You…. How much do you have now?” Bai Luo Yin asked.

“Most likely I won’t even be able to buy tomorrow’s breakfast.”

Bai Luo Yin snorted.

“Why did you spent all of your money?”

Gu Hai’s hand fiddled with Bai Luo Yin’s hair, leisurely said, “I used to spend my money freely. Have you ever heard about this sentence? It is easy to go from frugality to extravagance, but it’s difficult to go from extravagance to frugality.”

“Let’s do this then, just stay at my home for now, if someday you have the face to go and ask your dad for money, then you can go back.”

“Then I won’t ask any money from him.” Gu Hai let out an evil smile while moving closer to Bai Luo Yin.

Bai Luo Yin used his hand to hit Gu Hai’s head a couple times, helplessly looked at Gu Hai who secretly felt pleased under his blanket.

“Okay, let’s do that.” Bai Luo Yin then prepared to sleep.

Gu Hai then lifted his head out from the blanket, he placed his hand on Bai Luo Yin’s shoulder and pressed his upper body closer to Bai Luo Yin.

“No! I can’t be a freeloader at your house. Besides, it’s really inconvenient if I don’t have any money. Help me to think a way, how can I get the money?”

Bai Luo Yin turned his body around to face Gu Hai. Upon looking at Bai Luo Yin’s handsome face, Gu Hai felt a whirlwind stirring up inside his brain.

“Why are you being so polite? You’ve been a freeloader at my house for almost two months, right? So what if you do it for a few more months? Besides, my father’s job with a high salary now, its all because of you, he’s really anxious about how to repay you. If he knew about this, don’t even talk about a few months, even if it’s a few more years, he would be really happy to help you!”

“Just help me to think something.” Gu Hai gave a bitter expression, he pressed his head closer to Bai Luo Yin’s chest, “It’s okay to freeload at your house, but I can’t ask for money from Uncle. What if one day I need something, and I don’t have any money?”

“It’s okay to ask him for money!”

Gu Hai’s head rested on Bai Luo Yin’s chest for a while. Actually, implored him was just his second intention, his real intention was to stroke Bai Luo Yin’s chest.

Bai Luo Yin felt numb because of Gu Hai’s rough skin on his scalp, he hastily stopped Gu Hai’s movement.

“Okay, I will think about it. You just need to get money, right?”

Gu Hai lifted his head up, looked at Bai Luo Yin with his charming eyes, a hint of shamelessness seeped through from inside.

“You helped Aunt Zhou and my father so easily, but why can’t you help yourself? Normally speaking, compared to other people, it’s much easier for you to get money, right?”

“It’s not like that.” Gu Hai fiddled with Bai Luo Yin’s finger, “If it’s about money, I want to rely on my own ability to get it.”

Bai Luo Yin said honestly, “If you want to depend on your own ability, you won’t be able to get any money.”

These words hurt our Gu Hai’s self-esteem after he heard that he immediately flung Bai Luo Yin’s hand, and made it as a pillow for his head. I can’t make any money? If I, Gu Hai, were to do it for real, I can quit school right now and start from scratch. I guarantee you, within five years I will absolutely succeed!

“You really want to make money right?” Bai Luo Yin kicked Gu Hai lightly.

Gu Hai stayed still, not saying anything.

“Actually I have an idea, you will get money quickly.”

Gu Hai was still silent as before.

“If you don’t want to hear it then forget it.”

When he saw that Bai Luo Yin turned his body around, he immediately pulled Bai Luo Yin into his embrace, the tip of his tongue pressed near Bai Luo Yin’s earlobe, “Say it quickly, if you’re not saying it then I will grab your little Yin zi.”

Weekend, at Gu Hai’s new place.

“Yao Ji! (Little Chicken)” Li Shuo put out money.

“Peng!” [1] Bai Luo Yin took all of the money and placed them on his side.

Zhou Si Hu was surprised, “Peng again?”

Bai Luo Yin just laughed, he didn’t say anything.

Gu Hai looked at his own tile, his finger moved back and forth on top of his mahjong tiles, finally, he discarded one tile.

“San Tong (Three Bamboos).”

“Gang!” [2] Bai Luo Yin immediately took out the tile before his eyes.

Li Shuo angrily scratched his head, secretly cursed, “How can you keep doing peng, chi [3], gang, endlessly? Damn it, I’ll discard one more tile. Let’s see if you can still do chi or not….”

“Qi Tiao (Seven Bamboos).”

Bai Luo Yin immediately turned all of his tiles over, “Hu le!” [4]

Li Shuo and Zhou Si Hu were astonished, again? Since we started playing until now, Bai Luo Yin has been winning for seven consecutive times, he won every game, undefeated.

“I can’t believe this evil.”

With a cigarette in his mouth, Li Shuo furrowed his eyebrows while shuffling the tiles.

This time, Zhou Si Hu’s tile was obviously good, when he was just started to arrange his tiles, his expression was overflowing with joy. He glanced at Li Shuo, brother is going to win this time, you’d better cooperate with me for a bit.

Gu Hai was really quiet, it’s not that he’s not skilled, it’s not that his tiles are bad, it’s just that he’s most willing to be Bai Luo Yin’s benefactor. What Bai Luo Yin needs over there, he will offer it from here.

“Wu Tiao (Five Bamboos).” Bai Luo Yin discarded a tile.



Zhou Si Hu smiled towards Li Shuo while swaying his mahjong tile, “Forget it, brother got it first, I’m sorry.”

Li Shuo’s face darkened.

After a few turns in this round, no one uttered a word, Zhou Si Hu saw that his tiles are just one step away from winning, he only needs Liu Wan or Jiu Wan to win. Zhou Si Hu gave a gesture to Li Shuo under the table.

Li Shuo looked at his own tiles, he didn’t say anything, he really has one Qiu Wan.

Then just wait, wait until it’s my turn, I will let you win once.

Bai Luo Yin guessed that his tile is going to come soon, he picked one tile, pressed it in his hand, then he raised the corner of his mouth and giving a cold smile, confusing the person beside him.

“Hu le.” Bai Luo Yin turned over his tiles, “Zi mo. Yi Tiao Long.” [5]

Li Shuo and Zhou Shi Hu simultaneously laid their head on the table, their face was full of distress, I can’t play anymore. He came here to play mahjong, or to rob me? Why is he so good at this?

Those four people were playing from the afternoon until the evening, Bai Luo Yin placed more and more money into his own bag.

Dinner time, Li Shuo can’t help but ask Bai Luo Yin, “Why are you so good at playing mahjong?”

Zhou Si Hu also asked, “Are you sure you’re not cheating?”

“Actually he doesn’t need to cheat.” Gu Hai laughed, “I guess he definitely can remember the tiles.”

Li Shuo was surprised, “Remember the tiles? How can you remember the tiles? Can you memorize so many tiles in front of you? Beside, those tiles weren’t grabbed by you alone, four people took them in turn, can you know what tile you will get?”

Gu Hai bragged about his wife proudly, “I’m telling you this, he’s not only remembering those tiles in front of him, even when you’re drawing your tiles, but he can also remember it all. So when we’re drawing a tile, it depends on luck. But when he’s drawing a tile, he knew it already in his mind. If I say that he has a photographic memory, do you believe me?”

Both Li Shuo and Zhou Shi Hu has an admiring gaze on Bai Luo Yin, is he a guru from some kind of legend?

Bai Luo Yin laughed, “Don’t listen to his nonsense. This kind of thing still has to depend on luck, today is my lucky day.”

“Aren’t you too lucky?” Li Shuo drank a mouthful of beer, “Later I don’t want to play mahjong with you anymore.”

Gu Hai and Bai Luo Yin looked at each other. Fraudulence and evilness were all inside their eyes.

After Li Shuo and Zhou Shi Hu went back, those two bad boys hid in the bedroom while counting their money. Everything was from Bai Luo Yin’s winning against Zhou Shi Hu and Li Shuo.

“12 thousands yuan in total.” Gu Hai raised his lips, “As expected, you’re really my good wife.”

Bai Luo Yin who was smiling at first suddenly got angry when he heard this, “If you say that one more time, do you believe that I will castrate you?”

“Castrate me?” Gu Hai let out an evil smile, “Then you have to find a big basin, otherwise it won’t fit.”

Bai Luo Yin’s ashamed and irritated face left Gu Hai’s gaze.
