The Pitiful Xiao Liu gets Roasted
“Why are you here again?” Bai Luo Yin quickly interrupted Liu Chong as to stop him from saying anything else. He was well aware that if Liu Chong continued, he would make the situation worst.
“Because I still feel very sorry, I… I can’t stop worrying about you.”
Without the slightest sense of gratitude, Bai Luo Yin lifted his head, revealing a stern and overbearing expression as he looked at Liu Chong. “What does it have to do with you if I’m injured? What are you doing, running here instead of training at the base? Hurry up and go back!”
“What do you mean it doesn’t have anything to do with me?” Liu Chong’s eyes brimmed with tears. “Major, every time something happens to me, you are always the first to rush in front of me… but, every time you run into something, you always push me away!”
Bai Luo Yin twisted his eyebrows tightly, refusing to admit anything.
“When did I rush in front of you? Stop trying to play such a senseless trick! If it was just the two of us, I wouldn’t care how much you flatter me, but Gu Zong is here. Don’t make him laugh!”
“Major, don’t say those kinds of words!” Liu Chong anxiously stood up and stomped his foot, “I have come to realize that I cannot blindly obey your orders anymore. If I turn around and leave again this time, then I am not human!”
Bai Luo Yin nearly lost his breath. Fuck, you’re stubborn! The army sure educated you well in maintaining your grounds. Now you’re trying to use it against me!
Gu Hai remained silent for a long time but once he took notice of Bai Luo Yin and Liu Chong tearing at each other in this unclear situation, he felt he needed to step in.
“Xiao Liu, can I call you this?”
Still stuck in a vehement mood that had yet to subside, Liu Chong twisted his head toward Gu Hai when he heard his name being called and continued to loudly expression himself. “Gu Zong, reason this out for me. Tell me, since things have come this far, how can I leave?”
Having listened for quite a long while, Gu Hai still he could not understand what he meant, “Since things have come this far?”
“That is… the Major has shown great kindness towards me. It is a debt that I won’t ever be able to repay. Now that something has happened to Major, how can I turn around and walk away?”
Gu Hai silently sneered to himself. Now, you’re biting the hand that fed you…
“How about you tell me about the kindness that he has done for you and I will help you determine just how great of a deed it is?” Gu Hai said, glancing at Liu Chong.
Bai Luo Yin’s figure turned cold as he unconsciously trembled.
Just as Liu Chong was about to speak, Bai Luo Yin roared—a roar that could shake the heaven.
“Get the fuck out!”
The words that beckoned to creep out of Liu Chong’s mouth suddenly froze and rolled back down his throat as he looked shockingly at Bai Luo Yin for a few seconds. Then, he glanced at Gu Hai, cleared his throat and turned back toward Bai Luo Yin with a rather good temperament.
“Major, there’s no other meaning behind Gu Zong asking this. You don’t have to kick him out.”
“I am fucking telling you to leave!” Bai Luo Yin shouted, his eyes now a hue of purple.
“Oh…” This time, Liu Chong was truly stunned.
At last, Gu Hai understood what was happening. Liu Chong has something to say but was unable to since Bai Luo Yin kept preventing him to by every means possible.
Something must be going on between these two.
Bai Luo Yin’s harsh instruction for Liu Chong to leave caused him to be completely torn and listless. He turned and punched his backpack a few times then hung his head low without uttering another word.
After restraining himself and calming down, Bai Luo Yin said: “It’s okay now, just go back to the base. I will be discharged in two days.”
Without speaking, Liu Chong quietly took out his clothes and daily necessities from his backpack. Then he took a large stride to the side and showed Bai Luo Yin his intentions.
“Major, you don’t need to say anything else. I have already requested time off, and since I am here, I have no intention of leaving either.”
Shit! You devil!!
Bai Luo Yin’s head immediately plunged under the blanket without saying another word.
Thinking that Bai Luo Yin was still wavering, he took the opportunity to add a few words of politeness. “Major, no matter how good a person Gu Zong is, he is still a guest! I, on the other hand, am not an outsider. No matter how you order me around, isn’t it more suitable? Right?”
Right, my ass! You bastard! Bai Luo Yin has already begun to think of his own tragic ending.
With that, Liu Chong walked toward Gu Hai and gratefully grasped his hand, “The past few days must have been hard on you.”
Gu Hai patted Liu Chong’s shoulder and praised him, “You are really talented!”
“You flatter me,” Liu Chong let out an embarrassed smile before his hand reach toward the doorknob. “Gu Zong, I’ll walk you out.”
Gu Hai actually walked out with Liu Chong.
Meanwhile, Bai Luo Yin thought that the end of the world has arrived.
“Let me ask you something,” Gu Hai’s footstep came to a halt.
Out of habit, Liu Chong stood in attention. “Please ask.”
“How well does your Major treat you normally for you to insist on staying here to take care of him without any complaints or hesitations?”
Now that their conversation has reached this point, Liu Chong started to tear up again.
“A few days ago, we pitched camp in the desert for training. But because of my injuries, Major had an argument with the Wing Commander. The argument escalated. In the end, the Wing Commander punished him to climb two hundred trees. After he climbed all those trees, he nearly collapsed from the heat and exhaustion, yet even then, he came to my tent and hugged me to sleep to keep me warm. He said that my leg was injured so it was best not to catch a cold. Every night, he would hold me to sleep. If it was not for Major, I would have become disabled already.”
A strong and deep sense of danger appeared in Gu Hai’s eyes but unfortunately, Liu Chong was absolutely unaware of it.
“It seems you should really stay here.” Gu Hai said, patting Liu Chong’s shoulder.
Liu Chong cheerfully said, “Then I will only walk you to here. I have to hurry back to check on Major.”
“Go!” Gu Hai lifted his hand and waved him off.
While Liu Chong joyfully ran back in, Gu Hai walked out of the hospital with a gloomy expression smeared across his face.
Bai Luo Yin waited desperately for Gu Hai to come back but in the end, when he lifted his head, he saw Liu Chong charge into the room in high spirits.
“Where is Gu Hai?” Bai Luo Yin asked puzzled.
Liu Chong started to tidy his things, “He left. I will take care of you for the next two days.” After saying that, he hummed a tune and went to the bathroom to take a shower.
However, when Liu Chong had finished showering, changed into his clothes, and walk out feeling refreshed, the door slammed open with a loud bang.
A face clouded with a raging temper appeared at the door.
Liu Chong did not have time to react when Gu Hai bound his upper body and tied his arms behind his back with a rope. With that done, he then suspended him horizontally from the roof of the room and placed a fire pit beneath him. As the flames whooshed and the heat incessantly rose, Liu Chong dripped with sweat in less than ten minutes. Sadly, even after things had come this far, Liu Chong still does not understand why he was being roasted and kept howling in grief.
“Major, save me! I’m going to be cooked soon.”
Bai Luo Yin could not take it anymore. Taking advantage of the time Gu Hai went to the bathroom, he walked toward Liu Chong and started to untie him. However, just as he was doing so, Gu Hai leisurely came back and stopped in front of him. He said politely, “If you wanted to adjust the temperature for him, why didn’t you just say so? What are you doing getting out of bed like that all by yourself?”
After saying that, he bent his foot a bit and kicked the temperature of the fire pit up a level, causing the flames to leap up even higher.
Liu Chong let out a blood-curdling screech while trying his utmost to straighten out his body as much as possible to prevent the fire from reaching his body.
Gu Hai patted Liu Chong’s face, “It seems your Major still knows how to care for you! I don’t think the strength of this ‘fire therapy’ is enough. Since he especially got out of bed to increase the temperature for you so that your bones can recover faster, you have to thank him properly.”
Hearing those words, Liu Chong’s face soon wrinkled into a fully bloomed chrysanthemum.
Gu Hai firmly hooped his arm around Bai Luo Yin’s shoulder and looked at him with a smug and insincere smile.
“Are you still not going back to bed??
Bai Luo Yin stiffened and refused to move.
“Do you want me to put a cotton-padded jacket on him?”
In seconds, Bai Luo Yin was simply dragged back to bed by Gu Hai.
Before going to sleep that night, Liu Chong has been suspended for almost twelve hours.
Gu Hai stripped out of his clothes, leaving only his underpants on before squeezing onto the bed right in front of Liu Chong, who looked at him in shock. Then he deliberately reached his arm out of the blanket and pulled Bai Luo Yin toward him in a tight hug, all the while, revealing a comfortable and enjoyable expression, finished off with a declarative smile; the kind of smile that spoke volume without voicing any statement.
This person is mine!
With just one look at the scene, Liu Chong’s heart suddenly ached with resentment.
Quick to notice the troubled and unbearable expression on Liu Chong’s face, Gu Hai suddenly asked, “Xiao Liu ah! Since you’re more than warm enough now, there’s no need for someone to hug you to sleep, right? Otherwise, how about I adjust the temperature for you again?”
Liu Chong hastily shook his head as he silently endured this predicament.
Bai Luo Yin gritted his teeth in anger, “That’s enough!! His injuries haven’t healed yet. If you tie him up like that, his blood won’t circulate properly. What happens if he becomes disabled?”
Gu Hai laughed cruelly, “You climbed 200 trees until your hands are covered in cuts for him. I’m only letting him roast for twenty-something hours for you, that’s not too excessive, is it?”
Giving him an intense glare, Bai Luo Yin spoke, pausing between each word. “Gu Hai, you-are-really-ruthless!”
“Not as ruthless as you!” Gu Hai glared back angrily.
When Bai Luo Yin turned over to get off the bed, Gu Hai quickly grabbed hold of him. He pulled him close and let his sinister voice attacked Bai Luo Yin’s ear. “If that foot of yours dare to touch the ground, I will make love to you in front of him. If you don’t believe me, just try it!”
When it came to matters involving the bed, Gu Hai has always been the king in control.
Bai Luo Yin’s body dropped heavily on the bed.
Even after a little over two o’clock at night rolled by, Bai Luo Yin’s eyes were still opened and aimed at Liu Chong whose head had long drooped down as he slept. His hair fluttered above the flame while droplets of sweat dripped on the ground, creating a small pool of water.
Bai Luo Yin’s chest tightened the entire time as he looked on.
Gu Hai narrowed his eyes and looked at the grievance expressed in Bai Luo Yin’s eyes.
“You feel that sorry for him?”
“If it was you and I was being fucked by someone, I would still rush over to untie the ropes.”
Gu Hai’s heart shook—his determination loosened but his mouth was not as forgiving.
“Don’t compare us. There’s nothing to compare from the start. It is not wrong or uncalled for if you treat me with importance, but you treating him with importance is definitely not okay!”
Bai Luo Yin’s clenched fist loosened, but his tone revealed a strong sense of unwillingness.
“Let him go, I absolutely won’t do anything like that again in the future.”
Gu Hai has been waiting for this promise. The trembling that had overtaken his heart for an entire day has finally calmed down and beat regularly again. Exposing a small smile filled with satisfaction, Gu Hai got out of the bed and went to loosen up the rope on Liu Chong. Liu Chong was not able to stand steadily, so he ended up lying down on the ground, grimacing in pain instead.
Gu Hai crouched down, his cold sharp eyes swept straight toward him.
“You remember this clearly. If your Major treats you well, I won’t interfere. But if he has to sacrifice himself in any manner just to treat you well then I will get everything that he had sacrifice back from you little by little!”
Liu Chong, “…”
