A Battlefield at every Corner
When Gu Hai and Bai Luo Yin was caught in the middle of a cold war, they did not contact each other for three days. The cold war was essentially a battle between Bai Luo Yin’s stomach and Xiao Hai Zi. The result of the battle was mainly to see whose patience lasted longer.
That afternoon, as Bai Luo Yin sat in the research room, his stomach began to rumble with such hunger that pain crept to his sides while his heart and stomach were waging a mighty battle with each other. That strong-minded heart was constantly reminding Bai Luo Yin he must persevere until the very end. However, his wicked stomach kept on urging him to turn his phone on. Just as the two sides were battling it out to the death, a sudden turn of event appeared.
“Xiao Bai, your take-out is here!”
Bai Luo Yin’s heart had never throbbed as fast as it did now—not even when he tested his many fighter aircraft.
Since it was only a few steps between the research rooms to the main door, Bai Luo Yin urged himself to calm down repeatedly. He must pretend to refuse the lunchbox first then wait until the other person pesters again, only to finally shove it in his hand before he reluctantly accepts it.
But, upon seeing that the delivery person was Huang Shun and using the excuse that he did not want to make it difficult for such a strenuous worker, Bai Luo Yin quickly accepted the lunch box. With the lunchbox tightly in his hands, he made a beeline to his dorm to avoid those scheming engineers from seeing it and robbing him again. Don’t mention eating it, just the smell alone was enough to make Bai Luo Yin panic with delight. He must slowly enjoy it alone in his dorm!
Before opening the lunchbox, Bai Luo Yin did his utmost to calm down his emotions.
What’s inside? Steamed meat buns would be the best! The last time Gu Hai made it, the steam smelled extremely fragrance, the skin was soft and savory, and the stuffing inside oozed flavorful oil with just one bite.
In the end, Bai Luo Yin was utterly shocked when he opened the lunchbox.
There were indeed steamed meat buns inside, but the thing was…it was all flat and not three-dimensional buns. The so-called ‘flatness’ used to depict this arose from the fact that it was actually a piece of paper with images of steamed meat buns on it. The wicked part was all the buns were bitten, exposing the delicious stuffing that was not so coyly calling out Bai Luo Yin’s name. Beneath the buns were images of every kind of food, all of which Gu Hai had personally made before he shot pictures of them with a high-definition camera.
Fuck! It’s even more seductive than seeing it all in person!
Bai Luo Yin clenched his fists. One can truly imagine the grief and indignation he felt.
So, what? It’s just a pile of food pictures!
Those could be found anywhere online, why put it in the lunchbox just to make it unbearable for him?!
Even if he was beaten to death, Bai Luo Yin refused to admit that he, after going through challenging experiences and overcoming unimaginable difficulties the ordinary person could not endure in the military, would ultimately give in to a lunchbox.
No, I must not surrender!
Meanwhile, sitting in front of a huge table full of delicious food, Gu Hai had been eating from seven to ten o’clock. That was all done so when a certain someone knocked on the door and came in to see the food, he would immediately decide not to leave.
As a result, the someone he longed for turned out to be the mail courier.
“Mr. Gu Hai? This express delivery is for you, please sign here.”
When Gu Hai took the package inside and opened, he immediately smelled Bai Luo Yin’s distinctive scent. He lowered his head for a look. Oh shit! There was a lot of stuff. Bai Luo Yin’s underwear, socks, shirt, kneepads… and at the very bottom, Gu Hai also saw a few strands of hair stuck on the clothes. Perhaps, Bai Luo Yin had for some reasons placed it there on purpose, and although no one knew where it came from, Gu Hai alone would know for sure.
That night, after tossing and turning in bed unable to sleep, Gu Hai got up to smoke at a little over one o’clock. Sadly, the smoke formed into an erotic figure of Bai Luo Yin.
Shit, he got me good! That bastard is so bad! It really does take vigilance to keep evil away!108
Gu Hai wished he could reincarnate as Tu Hang Sun,109 flee thousands of miles into the ground, just to dig a hole beneath Bai Luo Yin’s dorm, pull him out and madly rough him up!
But since it was a battle of willpower, Gu Hai does not want to easily admit defeat!
Bai Luo Yin had also been waiting for most of the night. At first, he thought that Gu Hai would certainly storm into his dorm but in the end, he did not hear any movements. No longer able to endure the call of slumber, he soon fell asleep.
In the afternoon of the next day, he received another pile of pictures that were even more intimidating. After a quick browse, all the blood in Bai Luo Yin’s body began to flow backward.
The images were ambiguous group photos of Gu Hai with his female employees. There were some with two people, three people, in the company, in entertainment places, and even in the hotel… when he finally got to the last picture, Bai Luo Yin saw a shot of Gu Hai and Yan Ya Jing kissing affectionately.
In reality, Gu Hai had someone Photoshop these pictures.
Nevertheless, Bai Luo Yin was struck with anger looking at them. Even if it was to make him mad, but to deliberately create such abominations is utterly unforgivable!
Boiling with rage, the Major wanted to immediately take his car and rush to Gu Hai’s company to cut a person!
Bai Luo Yin changed his clothes, locked the door and got halfway, but turned back instead.
That is definitely a trap… Bai Luo Yin said to himself. There must be something wrong with those pictures. Who would actually have nothing better to do than to take those pictures? If it was deliberately taken to make me angry, then isn’t it impossible to move around to so many venues in one day?
Just as he was contemplating, a soldier walked past him in a rush.
“Stop!” Bai Luo Yin shouted a command, causing the soldier to look nervously at him. “What’s in your hand?”
There was a small box held firmly in the soldier’s hands, and upon Bai Luo Yin close inquiry, he had no choice but to comply and response. “A few pairs of socks I bought online.”
Bai Luo Yin lifted his chin, “Open it. I want to take a look.”
The soldier started to open the box in an exasperatingly slow manner, and just as he said, there were really several pairs of socks inside, but when Bai Luo Yin removed the middle of the cardboard box, he discovered a few small boxes of condoms hidden beneath.
With a beating red face, the soldier quickly explained: “That… that might be gifts from the shop owner.”
Bai Luo Yin coldly snorted, “Tell me, was it purchase condoms and get socks as gifts or purchase socks and get condoms as gifts, hmm?”
“Purchase… purchase socks and get condoms as gifts.”
Hearing that answer, Bai Luo Yin couldn’t help but to internally sneered to himself. What condom brands haven’t I used before? These socks look like they only cost ten yuan110 for three pairs and these boxes of condom are completely full. Even if you added all these socks together, it’s not even worth one box of condoms. Who are you trying to joke with?
“Since it’s a gift, then give it to me!” Bai Luo Yin reached his hands out.
The soldier stood frozen in shock.
Bai Luo Yin faintly asked, “Do you need it?”
The soldier automatically shook his head.
Bai Luo Yin shoved the socks into the soldier’s hand, took the box of condoms and left.
Back in his dorm, Bai Luo Yin began to conjure a scheme. This will most definitely be more ruthless than Gu Hai’s pictures. He will fill the condom with his cum and send it to Gu Hai!
I don’t believe that I can’t punish you!
With that in mind, Bai Luo Yin immediately went into the bathroom to commence his grand operation. Sadly, although in his heart he hated that guy, he still had to depend on him during such a crucial moment like now. While he put on the condom on, Bai Luo Yin started to fantasize about the numerous intimate scenes between him and Gu Hai. Eventually, his breaths became heavier as he became more aroused. Finally, he painfully released a moan as a gush of thick cloudy liquid sprayed in his palm.
Just as Bai Luo Yin had carefully put the liquid into the condom and turned around to leave the bathroom, a figure suddenly appeared in front of him, making his heart jump.
The corner of Gu Yang’s lip slightly rose.
The condom in Bai Luo Yin’s hand dropped to the ground. “When did you get here?”
Gu Yang laughed devilishly, looking at him. “Since you went into the bathroom.”
Bai Luo Yin’s head exploded. He could not imagine that while he was alone in the bathroom masturbating, there was someone behind him enjoying the whole thing. It would have been fine if the person was Gu Hai but instead, it had to be the person he wanted to see the least. Just thinking about it, Bai Luo Yin truly wanted to die.
In reality, Gu Yang only saw the end of it since Bai Luo Yin’s back was toward the door the entire time, so he could only make out what he was doing. But as to how he did it, Gu Yang did not see it at all. That, however, did not stop him from enjoying Bai Luo Yin’s gasp. Perhaps, even Bai Luo Yin was unaware of how charming and tempting his own moment of release was.
Bai Luo Yin washed his hands and calmly walked out of the bathroom.
“What are you doing here again?”
A small smile appeared in Gu Yang’s eyes. “Seeing how depressing it is that you are in the military base all day, I wanted to take you out to relax.”
At first, Bai Luo Yin wanted to say that he was not interested. But after thinking it through… he realized that he has to go to Zhou Ling Yun’s office if he wanted to request time off… so as a result, he immediately agreed.
On the way there, Bai Luo Yin deliberately Gu asked, “How come you’re not wearing the sunglasses I gave you?”
“I left it in the car,” Gu Yang said.
Bai Luo Yin’s sharp and enthralling gaze swept toward Gu Yang as his lips slightly parted. “Put it on!”
In Gu Yang’s eyes, that order held a bit of suspicion! But, seeing as a certain person was in a particularly good mood, he got the sunglasses and wore it.
Once they arrived at Zhou Ling Yun/s office, Bai Luo Yin made Gu Yang wait outside on purpose as he headed inside to request the time off.
“Wing Commander, I have to go out to handle some business, please grant me leave!”
Without looking up, Zhou Ling Yun indifferently responded, “You don’t have any more leave for the month.”
“The President of Haiyin High-Tech Co. invited me out to discuss the collaboration of this project. Since he took time off his busy schedule to come here, wouldn’t it be inappropriate for me to ignore him?”
As expected, Zhou Ling Yun’s eyes brightened up in delight.
Bai Luo Yin nodded his head.
Zhou Ling Yun stood up and looked out, and sure enough, he saw a familiar figure—especially since that pair of shining sunglasses had been thoroughly embedded in his mind. Moreover, every time he thought of it and the person it belonged to, he would be fired up.
“Hurry, go! But come back early!”
Zhou Ling Yun patted Bai Luo Yin’s shoulder, giving him a meaningful expression. It was obviously implying: After the two of you have finished discussing business matters, it’s best to come back together. Your leader’s life and happiness depend on you!
108 道高一尺魔高一丈: idiom that mean, ‘as virtue rises one foot, vice rises ten.’ Or, ‘the more illuminated, the more temptation’. In short, when there is good, there is evil that is ten times worse. Gu Hai was implying that he is the good person and the evil Bai Luo Yin is trying to take him down with his immoral behaviors so he has to be more attentive.
