Addicted: Book Two – Chapter 65

The Despotic Bai Luo Yin

Translate: Sae | Proofread: Julieta

As they continued to fall, Bai Luo Yin incessantly cursed at Gu Yang. Wasn’t it enough to block me, what did you rip my pants for? Even my ass is going numb from the whirring cold wind in my pants!

The parachute successfully opened and the two landed together on a mass pile of weeds.

Gu Hai’s body struck the ground first as he selflessly acted as Bai Luo Yin’s cushion, allowing him to fall directly on top of him. One of Gu Hai’s hand accidentally touched Bai Luo Yin’s butt—the bitter coldness immediately provoked shivers to race up his spine. When he looked down for a glance, there was an astonishingly large hole on Bai Luo Yin’s pants, and he was now relying only on a flimsy underwear to cover him from the cold wind.

“Your pants were ripped by the wind?” Gu Hai asked with a troubled expression.

Bai Luo Yin wanted to curse in rage. What kind of demonic wind can rip the pants? Isn’t it all due to your lunatic brother pulling at them?!!

“Let me see how bad it is.”

Gu Hai attempted to turn him over so that he would lie on his legs, Bai Luo Yin cholerically pushed him away. Then he found a spot further away from Gu Hai and sat down while his eyes scanned the surrounding area to deduce their current location.

Not to be deterred, Gu Hai moved closer, but just as he got halfway, Bai Luo Yin used a murderous gaze to warn him. “Stay away from me.”

“Are you going to act like that?!!” Gu Hai retorted with a darkened face. “Since we saw each other, you’ve been putting on that face, talking like you’ve swallowed gunpower.132 Are you itching for a fight because we haven’t seen each other for more than ten days?”

Bai Luo Yin gritted his teeth and nodded, “Yes, I’m going to be like this. Who told you to insist on jumping out with me? If you had jumped with him first, you wouldn’t have to look at me now, right?”

“Bai Luo Yin, are you trying to make me mad on purpose? Fuck! To think I missed you all those days!!”

“Who told you to miss me?” Bai Luo Yin’s cold eyes swept toward Gu Hai for a glance. “Besides, I couldn’t make out that you missed me at all. Just look at that glowing face of yours, you must have lived comfortably in Hong Kong, huh?”

Gu Hai was so furious, it felt unbearable. “Isn’t it glowing only because I saw you?”

Averting his gaze, Bai Luo Yin pretended to have not heard that and instead continued on with more sarcastic comments. “Rather than suffering here with me, why don’t you go look for that compatriot you’ve been facing all these difficulties with? If by chance his parachute didn’t open, he can count on you to collect his corpse!”

Hearing those words, Gu Hai actually stood up. As a flash of light swept by Bai Luo Yin’s eyes revealing a strict look, but suddenly Gu Hai’s body obstructed his view. Gu Hai wrapped his arms securely around Bai Luo Yin’s shoulders and pushed him to the ground. Afterward, he stretched his hand to Bai Luo Yin’s waist—Bai Luo Yin spared no effort to stop him while kicking and struggling.

“Oooowww!”

A painful cry suddenly sounded, cutting Gu Hai’s movements short.

An agonizing expression took hold of Bai Luo Yin’s face.

Gu Hai looked at Bai Luo Yin with a suspicious gaze before he poked his forehead. “I’m telling you, don’t even think about blackmailing me! I absolutely did not use a lot of strength just now. Who are you pretending to freaking cry bloody murder for?”

“Who’s fucking pretending, you asshole?!”

Bai Luo Yin resentfully pushed Gu Hai away. He turned himself over only to see that his underwear has been pricked by many broken thorns.

With one glance, Gu Hai started to laugh right on the spot. “Don’t get mad at me but I’m going to say something. Since you weren’t obedient, this must have been your punishment, huh?”

He said those mocking words then reached out to pick out the thorns for Bai Luo Yin.

However, Bai Luo Yin pushed him away again before he could. “Fucking move to the side. I don’t need you.”

“You won’t be able to get them all.”

“Even if I don’t get them all, I still don’t need your help.”

Gu Hai moved directly forward and embraced Bai Luo Yin then very mischievously patted his butt, unintentionally instigating Bai Luo Yin to widen his eyes as it glared at him. Gu Hai asked again, “You still don’t need me?”

The situation came to a conclusion with Bai Luo Yin lying on Gu Hai’s legs who picked the small thorns that made Bai Luo Yin feel pain with extreme patience and care. While he picked at them, he started to chat with Bai Luo Yin.

“What exactly did I do to make you angry?”

Half of Bai Luo Yin’s face was covered by wheat straws. “There’s no reason.”

“Are you confused?” Gu Hai asked.

Bai Luo Yin snorted coldly, “That’s you. I wouldn’t dare infringe on it.”

Gu Hai pinched Bai Luo Yin’s waist who in turn endured the pain instead of speaking.

From seconds to minutes, time slowly slipped by. Bai Luo Yin eventually couldn’t help but to turn his head over to look at Gu Hai. He caught sight of his gentle eyes, patience movements and a strong appearance that silently told others not to worry for him. As the haziness in Bai Luo Yin’s heart cleared up, he started to despise his own pettiness. He actually could not make sense of why he was angry at Gu Hai because of a person he did not know.

“You’re really not going to look for that person, are you?” Bai Luo Yin asked.

Gu Hai absent-mindedly replied, “Which person?”

“That person you brought back with you.”

Gu Hai paused. “Oh, it’s fine. He looks sturdy enough to me so nothing is going to happen to him. Once we return safely to Beijing, it still wouldn’t be too late to come back and get him.”

Bai Luo Yin went silent for a long while before he asked again, “When I said to mess things up in Hong Kong, how bad has it become?”

“It’s more than enough to keep him busy for a long while.”

Bai Luo Yin tensed up, “Why didn’t you beat him to death with a stick?”

“Nonsense, that’s my brother!”

Bai Luo Yin tightened his lips, “Let me tell you, all the shit that your brother did to your company is more ruthless than what you did. If he has your company’s confidential documents in his hands and uses it to threaten you, it’ll be a huge loss for us.”

“It’ll be alright, I still have a trump card with me!” Gu Hai said confidently, “Having Tong Zhe is the same as having his entire company’s secrets. If he has the guts to threaten me, I can threaten him as well. Besides, in my brother’s eyes, Tong Zhe is more valuable than anything else. His departure will definitely destroy him completely.”

“According to what you said, it would make more sense for his relationship with your brother to be unshakeable. How did you get him to switch sides?” Bai Luo Yin was puzzled.

Gu Hai leisurely smiled, “That’s a secret.”

Having said that, he pulled Bai Luo Yin up and patted the soil off of him. “Feel around, are there any more thorns?”

Bai Luo Yin stood frozen on the same spot as he stared directly at Gu Hai.

“What secret?”

He grabbed Bai Luo Yin’s hand. “Come, sit on my legs to avoid pressing down on your ass.”

“I want to know what that secret is.”

Gu Hai half-heartedly replied, “We can talk about that again when we get back. Let’s think about how to get out of here first.”

Giving him a nod, Bai Luo Yin decided to leave that topic for the time being and shifted his focus to the more urgent issue at hand.

“If we can safely return to Beijing then everything will be easier to deal with. I’m just afraid that after your brother returns to the base, he will get a request for more patrol to come and capture us back. If that happens, all our efforts would go to waste.”

“If he really has the ability, we wouldn’t have been stranded at the swamp for so many days.”

“What if?”

“There’s no what if.” Gu Hai vowed, “This area is already within the borders of Hebei. I guarantee, before getting to Beijing tomorrow, he definitely won’t be able to find the two of us.”

Just as he said that, not far from where they stood came a loud rumbling sound that caused the entire ground beneath their feet to shake.

What’s going on?

Bai Luo Yin’s complexion changed when he looked up to see a huge mass of thick smoke rising. From his years of experience in the Air Force, the thing that fell could be the wreckage of an aircraft.

“What’s going on?” Gu Hai stood up and look into the distant. “The scraps from the aircraft we were on shouldn’t have crashed to the ground just now, right?”

The pit of Bai Luo Yin’s stomach shook as he immediately retorted. “How’s that possible?”

Just as his voice dropped, a green military parachute of some sort floated down from not far.

Bai Luo Yin was lost in confusion. “Could it be that Tong Zhe is just landing now?”

“Is he a kite? Floating around in the air for so long …”

The two slowly walked in that direction but when they were halfway there, Bai Luo Yin’s footstep completely stopped.

What you are afraid of really does come to you.

Gu Hai was merely flabbergasted. “Why did my brother also jump?”

Looking ahead, Bai Luo Yin pointed at the wreckage. “Must’ve also been shot down by someone!”

Gu Yang stood up from the ground and shook the soil off of his clothes before narrowing his eyes to inspect his surroundings. Soon, his eyes locked on his targets not too far off. A pool of blood gathered in his chest, nearly spurting out from his throat.

Fuck! I finally caught you two bastards!

Watching as Gu Yang approached them with a murderous spirit, Gu Hai’s first reaction was not how to meet his enemy head-on. But rather, it was to grip Bai Luo Yin’s torn pants as to prevent Gu Yang from catching sight of his baobei’s little underwear.

Gu Yang came up and conveniently grabbed Gu Hai’s collar before he angrily shouted: “You are indeed my good brother!”

Contrariwise, Gu Hai appeared calm and collected. “Thank you for the compliment.”

“You want to know the password to my documents?” Gu Yang abruptly changed his tone.

Hearing ‘password’, Gu Hai coldly watched him attentively.

Gu Yang moved his mouth close to the side of Gu Hai’s ears then intentionally pausing between each word, he said, “I – love -Bai- Luo -Yin.”

Gu Hai’s body shook from shock.

Having heard everything clearly as he stood to the side, Bai Luo Yin rushed to grab Gu Hai and pressed up firmly against his body—incessantly attempting to pacify his emotions. “Don’t believe his words. He’s just trying to provoke you. I’m going to clear it out with him!”

An air of bitter coldness swept over Gu Hai’s face. “You can say it here.”

“These words can’t be said in front of you.” Bai Luo Yin responded with resolution.

Gu Hai immediately flipped out, “What words can’t be said in front me?”

“If I tell you I can’t say them in front of you, then I can’t! Trust me! Even if you are jealous, you have to endure it for me!!”  Bai Luo Yin suddenly exploded in a despotic and overwhelming manner that has never happened before.

He yanked Gu Yang forcefully by the arm, turned around and walked away.

The two walked about fifty meters away before Bai Luo Yin let go.

Gu Yang’s gloomy eyes looked at him. “What are you trying to trick me into doing again?”

Bai Luo Yin calmed down his breathing. “I’m not going to play any tricks today. I’ll speak with honesty instead.”

The look in Gu Yang’s eyes was of mockery as it pierced Bai Luo Yin’s heart, making it somewhat difficult for him to bear.

“Gu Yang, everything that had happened was all instigated by me. The root of all the mischiefs may have been Gu Hai but I am serious. In the past eight years, I have never stopped thinking about how to get my revenge against you. I hated you to the bone. Every time I thought of how Gu Hai lied in my arms, completely covered in blood, I wished I could hack you into pieces!”

“You never knew what I hate you for. You always thought it was because of the eight years of pain and suffering in the military that made me unable to forgive you. In fact, none of that means anything to me. The reason why I hate you is entirely because of Gu Hai. Did you know? Gu Hai has two scars on his body, both of which were painfully left by you. Every time he mentions you, he always uses ‘brother’ to address you. But every time you mention him, it’s never connected to the word ‘brother’.”

“Perhaps, you love too deep, so deep that I can’t see it. Perhaps, as you have said—at the time, you conceived that car accident for the sake of protecting your brother. Then I want to thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Without you, I would not be the Bai Luo Yin that I am today. All my scheming and cleverness were entirely created by you, Gu Yang!”

“But you must also accept the truth. Your brother no longer needs your protection. I have enough strength and abilities to protect him, please feel relieved to let him go and back off! From now on, all of Gu Hai’s happiness and pain will come from me alone. I won’t allow anyone to hurt Gu Hai in any shape or form! That includes you, Gu Wei Ting, and anyone else above him. No one!!”

  1. Thank you! I love Gu Hai’s singlemindedness. He is focused on his Luo Yin and Tong Zhe can just fend for himself. Haha
