You simply don’t understand me

Gu Yang stared attentively at Bai Luo Yin before he suddenly took out a pair of sunglasses from his jacket and held it in front of him—swinging it from side to side.
“Bai Luo Yin, you’ve hurt me deeply.”
Bai Luo Yin sneered coldly, “Do you even have a heart?”
“How do I not have a heart?” Gu Yang dug his nails into Bai Luo Yin’s cheeks, leaving a deep impression of his fingernails on his skin. “If I didn’t have a heart, I wouldn’t have abandoned all my work and came here to see you. Do you honestly think I’m here on a business trip? Have you seen me met up with any clients or contact any enterprises during all those days?”
Not wanting to hear anything, Bai Luo Yin’s ears automatically closed off.
“Did you know how I was captured by Zhou Ling Yun? It was because he snatched my sunglasses and I purposely drove into him just to get it back. Since I was injured from having been beaten by you and Gu Hai, I couldn’t even control the steering wheel properly… it was only until today did I realize that the huge danger I took to get the glasses back was actually a trap that you have set up for me.”
Bai Luo Yin responded indifferently, “It was just a joke.”
“A joke?” Gu Yang laughed with a tone that made it impossible to understand his frame of mind. “You placed the evil deeds Gu Hai committed on me with the intention of making me pay for it, then simply call it a joke? Then what isn’t considered jokes in your eyes?”
Bai Luo Yin’s cold pupils flashed, “As long as it happens to you, it’s all considered jokes.”
“So, you’ve taken the fact that ‘I like you’ and treat it as a joke as well, huh?” Gu Yang’s glare carried a sharp hook that carved into Bai Luo Yin’s face as he spoke.
Unfortunately, Bai Luo Yin responded, “It’s really pointless to talk about it repeatedly.”
Hearing those words, Gu Yang’s face was instantly covered with a layer of frost.
“Eight years ago, I was just a naïve and narcissistic adolescence. When you had expressed your good feelings toward me back then, I actually felt guilty for being incapable of responding kindly. But, if someone tampered with my car brakes and I had to live in the army for eight strenuous years, and I still believe in that person then it would have been better if I died back then.”
Gu Yang sat up with his brows drawn tightly together.
“You still hate me, right?”
“There is no need to use such a strong word between us.”
Without any reason at all, Gu Yang smiled.
“During the past eight years, I have always dreamt of you for some strange reason. In the dream, I was giving you a haircut while you heartlessly leaned back on the chair and slept. Mentioning it now is utterly strange. I, Gu Yang, have done countless immoral things but why is it that when it came to you, I unexpectedly become conscious of it?”
“That’s because I’m a very dangerous person.” Bai Luo Yin said, repeating Gu Yang’s words from all those years ago. “Consequently, I chose not to harm you and completely nip any feelings that you have for me at the bud instead.”
“You’ve already harmed me.” Gu Yang said with a harsh tone.
Bai Luo Yin did not yield, “Honestly, you don’t actually ‘like’ me at all. You only like to challenge yourself.”
“I really do enjoy the process of that challenge.”
“Then go entertain yourself!” Bai Luo Yin sneered, “Just as long as you don’t disturb my life.”
“What if I insist?”
With that said, Gu Yang began to tear at Bai Luo Yin’s collar.
Bai Luo Yin firmly gripped Gu Yang’s arm, “Let me tell you, even Gu Hai isn’t necessarily a match for me now, let alone you! If you’re smart, get the fuck out of here right now to save me the time of having to get someone to see you out!”
Gu Yang froze, not making any other movement.
Bai Luo Yin exerted some force into his waist and bounced back up. Then, he suddenly turned around and push half of Gu Yang’s body down with his elbow pressed roughly on to his neck. His tightened fist was raised high to send a set of hard strikes, yet Gu Yang’s gaze did not flinch the slightest as it swept toward him. In the end, Bai Luo Yin, however, could not bear to drop the punch.
He gritted his teeth with resentment, “Why do you have to look like Gu Hai so much?”
Every time Bai Luo Yin swayed in his resolution, he always made an error. Even if it wasn’t Gu Yang and the person was a complete stranger, so as long as they had a slight resemblance to Gu Hai, Bai Luo Yin would, without a doubt, be somewhat tolerance of him.
“Since you used me as a substitute for such a deceptive deed, then I don’t mind if you use me as a substitute to keep you company for the night. Don’t worry, my lips are tightly sealed. If you stick to your statement and claim that I’m Gu Hai, I won’t seek to clarify that identity.”
This time, Bai Luo Yin did not show any mercy.
“Gu Yang, let me tell you something very important. Even if I, Bai Luo Yin, need to vent or want to cheat, I wouldn’t look for a man. Gu Hai is a unique specimen made solely for me to love! There will never be anyone else like him since they’ve long become extinct already!”
“Unique specimen?” Gu Yang laughed sarcastically, “What kind of unique specimen? Does he have two dicks?”
“You’re right!” Bai Luo Yin responded with even more sarcasm, “That dick of yours has also grown on his body.”
Hearing such words, Gu Yang’s hands suddenly pressed against Bai Luo Yin’s waist. Initially, that spot was Gu Hai’s weakness but after some strenuous training sessions, it also became Bai Luo Yin’s. Since the muscles there were the weakest and most sensitive, it could not withstand even a hint of torment.
Having that spot attacked, Bai Luo Yin’s gaze exposed a vicious and bloodthirsty aura.
“At first, I wanted to save you a little bit of face, but since you don’t want to cherish it, then I’ll make sure to tear your face apart well today.”
The murderous atmosphere had finally been brewed to a perfect scenario. Just as the battle was set to commence, Gu Yang suddenly pulled out a piece of paper and held it in front of Bai Luo Yin’s face. Bai Luo Yin’s expression immediately changed with just one glance.
“You…how did you get this?”
It was one of the blueprints that he and more than ten other researchers have strenuously worked on for several months to complete. If that kind of military secret fell into the hands of outsiders, the consequences are inconceivable. Not to mention, Bai Luo Yin, himself would need to bear the consequences, every level of leadership involved with the project will be implicated and must assume responsibility; that included Zhou Ling Yun.
Taking his time, Gu Yang said, “Let’s just say, when I first went to your research laboratory, the guard wouldn’t let me in. But someone said that I was an acquaintance who delivered food for you every day, so they simply allowed me in.”
“They didn’t say anything when you turned on my computer?” Bai Luo Yin asked, his face turning green from anger.
Gu Yang shook the paper in his hand, causing it to produce a crisp sound. “They didn’t say anything,” he said, scoffing.
In truth, Bai Luo Yin had already anticipated something of that nature. Gu Hai was a collaborator in the project and was his younger brother who, in his colleagues’ eyes, has a great relationship with him, hence it was only normal for his appearance and or visitation. But he never thought Gu Yang would use the same method as a counterstrike to escalate the situation from a joke into a vicious battle.
Bai Luo Yin subconsciously snatched that paper, but Gu Yang kindly threw it at him instead.
“You can keep that, it doesn’t matter anyway. I have already scanned and saved it to my computer so that I can look at it anytime I want. I’m certain I can make a substantial amount of profit from it if I hand it over to an overseas company. There’s no need for you to be so anxious…with your intelligence, designing another blueprint wouldn’t be impossible.”
The few months of arduous workload was despicably trampled on by Gu Yang.
Bai Luo Yin could wait. But his team cannot afford to and neither could Gu Hai. With several hundred million yuan having been invested in the project, incalculable losses would incur with the slightest delay, let alone suddenly calling a stop. If the blueprint fell into another’s hand and the nation’s secrets were leaked, then everyone would be in a great deal of trouble.
After silence ran the room dry, Bai Luo Yin’s gaze finally shifted toward Gu Yang.
“You’re trying to kill three birds with one stone!”125
“Don’t worry, nothing will happen to you or Gu Hai. At most, you’ll both only lose some money. There will be two scapegoats who are willing to step forward to take the blame.”
“Tell me your conditions!” Bai Luo Yin said, eyes covered with coldness and resentment.
Gu Yang asked mockingly, “Have you never thought that I wouldn’t have the heart to do this?”
“I have great confidence in your twisted personality.”
The light in Gu Yang’s eyes flashed by as he temporarily put the blueprint down and sat down to directly face Bai Luo Yin.
“Where is Gu Hai?”
At that moment, Bai Luo Yin did not want to open his mouth, thinking that anything he said would only dirty his own tongue.
“He went to Hong Kong to help you clean up your mess.”
“Oh, how selfless!” Gu Yang smiled insidiously, “He can’t even manage his own issues here126 yet he is still thought of me?”
Bai Luo Yin aggressively took off his shirt and threw it straight toward Gu Yang’s face. Then, he lied on the bed with his limbs stretched out like a dead fish.
“Do it!” Bai Luo Yin said with a solemn yet tragic expression.
Gu Yang clenched Bai Luo Yin’s chin with his hand, “You’ve really changed! Back then, you would rather watch Gu Hai freeze to death in the tunnel then willingly sleep with me.”
“Stop your bullshit. If you want to do it then hurry up!”
Gu Yang’s burning gaze remained on Bai Luo Yin’s collar bones, while his voice was neither hostile or friendly. “If Gu Hai found out your way of handling things, wouldn’t he be extremely disappointed?”
Bai Luo Yin viciously yank Gu Yang’s collar with hatred seething from his eyes, “Are you incapable? Or, how about I do it?”
Hearing that, Gu Yang instantly gripped Bai Luo Yin’s neck and pushed it down into the bed while his hand moved toward the hem of his pants. He was meticulously testing Bai Luo Yin, waiting for the moment that his tolerance would break before suddenly revealing a pitiful expression as if he was begging for mercy. Even if it was merely the final struggle, at the very least, it gave Gu Yang an illusion that Bai Luo Yin still possessed a trace of kindness for him
Unfortunately, Bai Luo Yin remained frozen like a stone the entire time.
Gu Yang ruthlessly smacked the piece of paper in his hand on Bai Luo Yin’s face; his gaze suddenly switched from one of inquisitiveness to shear coldness.
“You don’t understand me one bit!”
After those words had yet to fade, he kicked the door and stormed out.
Bai Luo Yin sat up from the bed and caught the blueprint that slid down his face. He silently responded to himself, if I really didn’t understand you, then I wouldn’t have dared to do something like this.
125 “You’re trying to kill three birds with one stone!” – the birds being, Bai Luo Yin, Gu Hai and Zhou Ling Yun
