When Gu Hai was waiting in his office and did not receive any response, he could not help but be concerned and start to mumble to himself. He didn’t really get mad, did he? He took out the pictures and skimmed through it once more, and unsurprisingly, the more he looked at it, the more he felt he went overboard. Wouldn’t it be impossible to reconcile if Bai Luo Yin actually believed all that?
After thinking it through several more times, Gu Hai felt it was better to personally go to the base for a look, just to be on the safe side.
Once work was over, Gu Hai drove to the base only to discover that Bai Luo Yin’s dorm was locked. He went to the research lab where he was informed that Bai Luo Yin had not shown up all day. Looking at his watch, it was nearly time for dinner. Perhaps, he went out to eat, Gu Hai thought. With that in mind, he returned to Bai Luo Yin’s dorm and waited inside.
Glancing around, Gu Hai spotted the pile of pictures he had sent earlier on the table. He picked them up for another look and found that Bai Luo Yin had already crumbled up the picture of him and Yan Ya Jing together. It was clearer than the day that Bai Luo Yin was livid at that time.
Forget it… Gu Hai could not help but think, since the goal has been achieved, let’s call it quits!
With that thought, Gu Hai began to put Bai Luo Yin’s room back in order. Having not visited for a few days, it was not hard to imagine how unbearable it was for Gu Hai to see the mess. Just as Gu Hai was tidying Bai Luo Yin’s dirty clothes, he suddenly found a few boxes of condoms beneath the pillow. However, he did not remember whether he had ever left these kinds of things here or not. Since he was not the one who bought them, then where did they come from? The most important question was, why would Bai Luo Yin need these things when he lived in the dorm alone?
An ominous premonition leaped into his mind, provoking Gu Hai to shudder. But he quickly dispelled that suspicion. Bai Luo Yin is not a promiscuous person… plus, it’s only been three days since we’ve been in contact. There’s no way he would insult himself over such a trivial matter.
Gu Hai thought as he placed the condoms back and took the dirty clothes to the bathroom.
But just as he opened the bathroom door, he smelled a peculiar scent. It was a scent that he was extremely familiar with. His eyes subconsciously wandered in all direction until it suddenly fixed on a particular corner.
Locking on the target, he picked up the condom.
It was two completely different matter if Bai Luo Yin were to take the initiative and send something like that versus Gu Hai personally picking it up. He simply could not imagine Bai Luo Yin would do such things himself. Who would go through the trouble of wearing a condom while masturbating? As he kept thinking about it, he still felt it was impossible.
Where did the condom and cum inside come from then?
Just as doubts and uncertainties gripped Gu Hai’s mind, two voices sounded at the door.
“What the hell? I remember locking the door when we went out!” Bai Luo Yin was puzzled.
“I remember you had locked it too.” Gu Yang added from the side.
Gu Hai went into a severe shock; his whole body to freeze at the doorway of the bathroom.
Bai Luo Yin’s brain immediately exploded when he quickly discovered Gu Hai and saw the thing that he was holding in his hand.
Shit! The joke has gone overboard this time! If Gu Hai really misunderstands then it’s not going to be easy to clarify or resolve it!
Gu Yang calmly shot Gu Hai a glance, “You’re here too?”
Gu Hai looked at Gu Yang with a bone-chilling gaze. If it was any other person walking into the dorm with Bai Luo Yin, he would have not thought it was strange but not Gu Yang! Every time he returned to Beijing, he always informed Gu Hai beforehand. But, this time, he had hidden it and came to see Bai Luo Yin first. Perhaps, it was not just this time but many other times before. It was just, he never knew about it.
By now, Gu Yang has also detected the abnormality in the atmosphere. When he saw the thing in Gu Hai’s hand, he immediately understood the reason why he was looking at him like that.
Bai Luo Yin hesitantly called out to Gu Hai.
As if not hearing a single word, Gu Hai leaped toward Gu Yang like a vicious tiger that was determined to return to the mountain. Fortunately, Gu Yang was somewhat prepared, otherwise with such a fierce and straight on punch, he would have been knocked unconscious on the spot.
From Bai Luo Yin’s perspective, Gu Hai and Gu Yang had always appeared as if they do not get along, but in reality, their relationship was fairly good. Otherwise, Gu Hai would not have chosen to forgive him after experiencing a life and death situation. Moreover, he even gave Gu Yang a set of keys to his house.
But now, Bai Luo Yin could not make out an ounce of tolerance or misgiving on Gu Hai’s face. There were only four very distinctive words written in his scarlet eyes, ‘You are not family’.111
As the two wrestled, it was obvious Gu Hai had the upper hand in physical strength and added on his riotous mental state, he can simply beat Gu Yang to death.
A burst of flesh and bones being struck sounded along with a certain someone’s raging curses resonated in the entire room.
For Bai Luo Yin, a person who was extremely familiar with wrestling and combat, how could he look on without doing anything?
Having sensed that another person has gotten involved, Gu Hai’s mood became even more irritable. The sharp and icy glare that swept toward Bai Luo Yin sank into despair, causing him to practically lose his mind before he roared, “You’re actually helping him to hit me?!!”
Hearing that, Bai Luo Yin’s hands were aching to give him two big slaps on the face! Take a good hard look, who the fuck am I helping?
With two genuinely robust men striking at him together, how could Gu Yang’s ending be good? He could see that Bai Luo Yin was not even trying to mediate this quarrel but instead, he was simply taking the opportunity to seek revenge.
A wise man knows better than to fight when the odds are obviously against him.
If it continued on, he will surely lose his life. As a result, Gu Yang secretly endured the humiliation welling up in his heart and forcefully shove them off before rushing out of the door.
Gu Yang’s departure did not end the battle. Seeing that the fight was still in progress, Bai Luo Yin angrily shouted, “He is gone already!”
“I know he is gone!” Gu Hai’s pitch-black face was penetrating, “I am fucking hitting you!”
“What are you hitting me for?” Bai Luo Yin coldly confronted him.
Gu Hai’s heart was already drenched with blood while his voice trembled uncontrollably, “Why am I hitting you? Judging by the ‘good deeds’ you’ve done, even if I killed you, it wouldn’t be enough!!”
Bai Luo Yin knew whatever he wanted to say now was pointless. In order to quickly remedy the situation, he must obtain adequate evidence. While he was still thinking, Gu Hai turned his entire body over to the floor. Luck was on his side. When he landed on the floor, he spotted the main culprit (the condom) not even ten centimeters away. A bright idea suddenly lit up in Bai Luo Yin’s mind as he rapidly reached for the condom.
Then he held it up in front of Gu Hai’s eyes. “Take a good look!”
It would have been better if Gu Hai did not see that accusing item because, with just one glance, he became even more infuriated. It was to the point that Bai Luo Yin’s neck was nearly twisted off.
Bai Luo Yin was also enraged as he snarled savagely and forcefully shoved the condom inside Gu Hai’s mouth.
“Take a good taste of it yourself. Who the fuck does it belong to?”
The two were highly knowledgeable, experts even, in distinguishing each other’s body odor and the scent of either bodily fluid. With just one sniff, Gu Hai was able to clearly distinguish that the content belonged to Bai Luo Yin.
Once he sensed Gu Hai’s body tensed up, Bai Luo Yin harshly questioned him again.
“Use your dick to think about it, would a person like your brother let me fuck him?”
The blood in Gu Hai’s body slowly became warm, and although his expression did not immediately recover, his gazes were already more relaxed.
“What the hell? You had nothing better to do than to masturbate and shove your cum in there?”
Since things have come to this point, Bai Luo Yin no longer intended to save his own face.
If I lose face, then so be it. It’s much better than having to lose out to that person.
“You have the nerve to ask me why? You sent me so many pictures, wouldn’t it be inappropriate if I didn’t give something back to you?”
Gu Hai suddenly came to a realization.
Bai Luo Yin got up and sat on the chair before calmly fixed tidying his clothes.
Gu Hai also stood up and walked to Bai Luo Yin’s side before he quietly asked, “Then tell me, why were you angry with me that day? Why won’t you let me come to the base?”
With an expressionless face, Bai Luo Yin spilled out the reason.
Hearing that, Gu Hai burst into laughter while Bai Luo Yin felt ashamed and resentful.
“Get the fuck out of here if you’re going to continue laughing!”
Gu Hai pinched Bai Luo Yin flaming cheeks, not knowing whether or not he should laugh or cry at this point. “What do you want me to say? Is it necessary for you to go so far just to protect me from that kind of old bastard?”
“Who is protecting you?” Bai Luo Yin angrily retorted, “I’m guarding against him!”
“You could have just left him for me to guard against,” Gu Hai said faintly.
Bai Luo Yin snorted, “There’s no need for that, I found a substitute for you.”
As Gu Hai’s face was smeared with confusion, Bai Luo Yin generously detailed his entire plan. Just hearing it caused Gu Hai to tremble. “What? You dragged my brother into the mess?”
“Now you see him as your brother?” Bai Luo Yin shot Gu Hai a glance, “How come I didn’t hear you calling him brother when you were hitting him a moment ago?”
“Wasn’t it because I was enraged and lost my mind then?” The more Gu Hai thought about it, the more he found that it was not quite right. “When did he get back to Beijing? How come I didn’t know? What did you do when you went out with him?”
Bai Luo Yin repeated everything that Gu Yang had said to him to Gu Hai.
Gu Hai instantly said, “You should have given that dickhead to the old bastard ages ago!”
Gu Yang sat in the car with a swollen face and bloody nose and blood that dripped from the corner of his mouth. He had suffered a fracture on his arm which made it difficult to control the steering wheel. Without no other option, he reduced the speed and drove slowly across the training grounds.
When a silhouette suddenly flashed in front of his car, Gu Yang stepped on the brake.
Once the car stopped, the silhouette had wandered to his window. Gu Yang glanced at the epaulet on his shoulder—determining that the person was quite powerful, he rolled down the window and endured the pain before coming face to face with the person outside.
“What’s the matter?”
Zhou Ling Yun’s overbearing gazes scrutinized Gu Yang’s face for a while before he faintly questioned, “Even you can get beaten that badly?”
Hearing Zhou Ling Yun’s tone of voice, it sounded as though he knew him well. But even after Gu Yang thought to himself for a long while, he couldn’t remember where they have met.
“Who are you?” Gu Yang coldly asked.
Zhou Ling Yun placed his hand at the edge of the window while wearing a fake smile as he looked at Gu Yang. “You don’t recognize me anymore?”
Gu Yang coldly replied back with a few words, “I don’t recognize you.”
Zhou Ling Yun’s gaze became ruthless. “You don’t recognize me, but I recognize you!!”
Gu Yang’s face was unwell by now, does this person have poor eyesight or mental issues?
“Which Senior Colonel’s uniform did you steal and put on yourself?” Gu Yang rebuke.
Reaching into the car, Zhou Ling Yun grabbed the sunglasses that Gu Yang had left next to the windscreen and stuck it in his pocket. Then he said in a deep voice, “This, I’ll be taking it.”
Gu Yang’s gaze shot cold arrows at him, “Give it back!”
“If you have the skills, come get it from my office!”
With that said, Zhou Ling Yun swung around and took his leave.
Since Gu Yang was injured and had difficulties moving about, Gu Yang could only turn the car around and ferociously charged toward Zhou Ling Yun and bump into him!
In the end, when he saw Zhou Ling Yun’s leg flew to the front of his windshield, he urgently slammed his foot on the brakes. Then he looked at his rear-view mirror, and to his surprise, he saw Zhou Ling Yun walking back toward the car unscathed.
Soon after, his car was surrounded by a group of fully armed soldiers.
Zhou Ling Yun calmly ordered, “Escort this terrorist to the interrogation room!”
Gu Yang, “…”
