The two of them slammed the door shut. Yan Kailin and Liu Sui stood at the door with dull looks on their faces.
Once his mind returned, Yan Kailin raised his eyes to look at the door number of the bedroom. “304, it is right!”
Liu Kai couldn’t help scolding in a low voice, “F*k, you closed the door too loudly.”
“I ran too fast and couldn’t control my strength. Can you blame me?!”
The two of them finished speaking and were silent for a moment.
One by one, they started to speak again.
Yan Kailin said, “I ran too quickly and didn’t see the people properly.”
“F*k, if you didn’t see it clearly then why pull me to run?!”
“Then didn’t you run?”
“What nonsense about running… I have to say, that woman’s legs are so white.”
Yan Kailin’s mind went blank. “Huh?”
He patted his head. “I should’ve known the man was the one standing.”
Liu Kai wondered, “Is Xiao Zhao so tall?”
“Huh?” Yan Kailin couldn’t help looking at the doorknob. “Do you want to look at it again?”
The two of them were talking and planning to open the door to see what was going on. However, they didn’t have time to open the door.
The bedroom door in front of them opened. Chen Qizhao opened the door, his face cold.
Seeing that it was Chen Qizhao, the two of them sighed with relief.
Yan Kailin and Liu Kai’s gaze crossed past Chen Qizhao, but they didn’t see the person inside.
“Hey, Xiao Zhao, who was that woman? You didn’t even tell your brother when you got into a relationship.”
“Isn’t she quite beautiful? Kaizi said that your girlfriend’s legs are special…”
The word ‘special’ hadn’t completely come out when Yan Kailin’s gaze inadvertently swept over Chen Qizhao. Then his gaze stopped at the bottom of the loose sports shorts where a pair of white and straight legs were revealed.
Chen Qizhao asked, “What is special?”
Yan Kailin said, “Especially white…”
Liu Kai: “……”
Before Chen Qizhao could speak, there was the sound of movement in the bedroom. Yan Kailin watched Shen Yuhuai appear in his field of view, and a gentle and distant voice came from inside. “Is it Yan Kailin and the others?”
Yan Kailin: “……”
Liu Kai: “……”
The bedroom was a bit messy. Yan Kailin and Liu Kai entered the broom, and they kept staring at Chen Qizhao and Shen Yuhuai. After the initial shock, the two people’s swear words had nowhere to go. They wanted to ask, but with Shen Yuhuai present, they couldn’t utter a single word.
Shen Yuhuai asked, “Do you want to bring these?”
Chen Qizhao answered, “No, I have enough books.”
The two of them stood near the door of the bedroom and whispered to each other.
Liu Kai exclaimed, “F*k! You told me before that Shen Yuhuai was in a relationship, but you didn’t tell me you were talking about Xiao Zhao!”
“Do you think I knew? I knew one second earlier than you.” Yan Kailin was wronged. He had been gossiping so much a while ago, but he didn’t know Shen Yuhuai’s partner was Chen Qizhao! His eyes stayed on Shen Yuhuai and Chen Qizhao before inexplicably sweeping to their lips. Finally, he covered his face in pain and turned back, not daring to look at the table.
Yan Kailin said, “I don’t dare look at that table any longer!”
Liu Kai told him, “Yan Kailin, why are you so cowardly? Haven’t you seen two men be in a relationship before? Didn’t you talk to Qin Yunxuan before?”
“F*k, can my brother compare to Qin Yunxuan? In the beginning, Qin Yunxuan even dared to pursue my brother…”
Chen Qizhao looked at them. “What’s wrong with two men being in a relationship?”
Shen Yuhuai asked, “Qin Yunxuan?”
Liu Kai: “……”
His voice wasn’t suppressed the moment he spoke excitedly.
“No one, just a friend, an ordinary friend.” Yan Kailin noticed Shen Yuhuai’s gaze and immediately closed his mouth. He opened his eyes and watched as Shen Yuhuai and Chen Qizhao continued to put things away. Then he noticed the suitcase full of clothes and books and asked in a dumbfounded manner, “Brother, are you moving out?”
“Didn’t I tell you the other day?” Chen Qizhao carried a computer bag. “I will still live in the dormitory on weekends. I have many classes.”
Chen Qizhao said a few days ago that he might not stay in the dormitory often. Yan Kailin thought he was going home to live. Now it didn’t look like he was going home, but like he was going with Shen Yuhuai. Was it progressing so fast? How long had Shen Yuhuai been in a relationship with his brother? Wasn’t the last time he gossiped about Shen Yuhuai’s relationship in July? This.. was this going to live together?
Yan Kailin stood in place and inwardly struggled. Once he saw Shen Yuhuai dragging the suitcase away, he immediately pulled Chen Qizhao over and asked, “When did this happen?”
Chen Qizhao slightly raised an eyebrow. “Didn’t you know it earlier?”
Yan Kailin was dumbfounded. “I don’t know!”
“It has been a while. There were many things before, and I didn’t have time to tell you.” Chen Qizhao originally wanted to tell Yan Kailin, but this boy was always on the verge of having a stress reaction to Yan Kaiqi and Shen Yuhuai.
He didn’t say anything. He thought that everything should go with the flow, and he would say it when he had the opportunity. Who knew that these two people would directly barge in today?
Yan Kailin didn’t understand. He didn’t understand when Chen Qizhao got involved with Shen Yuhuai or when Shen Yuhuai got involved with his brother. It wasn’t that it was bad for two men to be together. It was just that for some reason, it was a bit awkward when Shen Yuhuai was with his brother.
He was worried here, and Liu Kai was worried next to him.
This Shen Yuhuai wasn’t the same as them. How could the two people get along?
“Did Shen Yuhuai pursue you?”
“No, how did you enter a relationship? Say it and let your brothers check it.”
Chen Qizhao licked his lower lip slightly. He felt that his lower lip seemed to be bitten by Shen Yuhuai and was slightly tingling. Then his phone in his pocket vibrated. Shen Yuhuai said he was waiting downstairs.
Listening to the broken thoughts of the two people next to him, he casually asked, “Do you want to eat?”
Yan Kailin wondered, “Huh?”
Chen Qizhao looked at Yan Kai’s face. “A meal.”
The two of them immediately stopped and replied together, “…Eat.”
For the meal, they chose a restaurant near S College. The two people whispering where Chen Qizhao could hear them immediately stopped moving their mouths after seeing Shen Yuhuai downstairs. They followed these two people to eat nearby.
Shen Yuhuai was looking at the menu. “What do you want to eat?”
Chen Qizhao didn’t look at it. “It is fine to eat meat as long as it isn’t spicy.”
Shen Yuhuai scratched out a few words. “Is there anything else?”
Chen Qizhao said, “Beer… or Coke.”
Yan Kailin and Liu Kai were sitting opposite them and holding their menus. They couldn’t lower their hands.
“Have you finished ordering?” Chen Qizhao looked at them.
Yan Kailin made a few strokes to order on the paper. He noticed Shen Yuhuai looking over and moved his hand to cross out the few cans of beer. He followed his brother’s footsteps and ordered Coke. “We’ve finished… ordering.”
Shen Yuhuai took the order form and looked at it. “You are drinking so much Coke?”
Yan Kailin had forgotten to cross out the x3 written next to it. “No… does it not work? I like to drink gassy drinks.”
Chen Qizhao’s gaze paused for a short moment on the crossed-out beer. His tongue licked his teeth slightly, and he quickly looked away.
Shen Yuhuai handed the order form to the waiter after making sure. “No, I’m afraid you won’t be able to hold on.”
Yan Kailin and Liu Kai, who ordered three bottles of Coke alone: “……”
Did they want to drink Coke? They wanted to drink beer.
During the meal, the eyes of Yan Kailin and Liu Kai moved back and forth. None of them dared to speak and just listened to Shen Yuhuai talking to Chen Qizhao. Shen Yuhuai’s body inexplicably had an elderly temperament. He was elegant and spoke in a humble and distant manner. It usually wasn’t easy to get along with him.
Liu Kai himself was a bit afraid of the Shen family while Yan Kailin had his older brother standing behind Shen Yuhuai. The two people followed to eat, but in the end, they couldn’t ask anything.
The meal was exhausting. When Shen Yuhuai asked them if they wanted him to take them home, the heads of the two people were like rattles. They slipped away after eating.
The moment they left, they bombarded Chen Qizhao’s VX continuously. The vibration sound continued one after another. On the way to the apartment, Shen Yuhuai looked at Chen Qizhao many times. He saw Chen Qizhao sitting in the passenger seat and reading the messages intently with a strange look on his face. It wasn’t known who he was talking to.
Shen Yuhuai lowered his eyes slightly. What appeared in his mind was the post-it note he saw in Chen Qizhao’s bedroom during the day. He had picked up the post-it note when Chen Qizhao opened the door to find Yan Kailin. Then he tore it up and threw it into the trash.
He knew that his boyfriend wasn’t as simple as he seemed. He knew that Chen Qizhao had many secrets and had investigated many things without telling others.
The sound of the horn drew Shen Yuhuai’s attention back. The vehicle behind him had honked.
Chen Qizhao was originally dealing with Yan Kailin and the other’s questions in the group. Once he heard the horn, he glanced at Shen Yuhuai. “Brother?”
Shen Yuhuai looked as usual as he started the car and left.
Chen Qizhao had come to the city apartment many times. He was already familiar with this place, and he didn’t have much luggage. It was held by Shen Yuhuai the whole time, and he only carried the computer bag. He quickly went over to swipe the fingerprint lock to open the door.
He took Shen Yuhuai’s key when he came here before. After Shen Yuhuai came home later, Shen Yuhuai entered his fingerprints.
Shen Yuhuai took the suitcase to the bedroom. “Put your clothes in the master bedroom. If there isn’t enough room, there is still some space in the second bedroom.”
“It shouldn’t be much.” Chen Qizhao went to sort out his luggage. “Go and get busy first. Didn’t you say that Liu Kai asked for a lot of information over there?”
Shen Yuhuai nodded. He walked to the long table in the room and opened his laptop.
There wasn’t much luggage, so Chen Qizhao went to take a shower after unpacking. Once he came out, he saw Shen Yuhuai seriously handling work matters at the long table . His glasses had some reflection, and his expression was different from when they usually talked.
In later generations, Shen Yuhuai had many reports written about him in magazines. Occasionally, when the project had a major breakthrough, researchers like Shen Yuhuai would have a small search about them. As a businessman, Chen Qizhao was sensitive to public opinion. He had also seen Shen Yuhuai, who shone in his own field, on the Internet. At that time, Shen Yuhuai was older than he was now. His maturity and indifference were like the gap between him and ordinary people.
Shen Yuhuai looked up and saw Chen Qizhao sitting on the bed and wiping his hand. The latter didn’t restrain his gaze at all and kept looking at him. He put away the job on hand for the time being and walked toward the person. Then he went to the bathroom to get a hair dryer.
“Sit here,” Shen Yuhuai said.
Chen Qizhao asked, “Are you done with your work?”
The whirring hair dryer was heard, and Chen Qizhao’s question was blocked by the wind.
The warm breeze combined with Shen Yuhuai’s strength. Chen Qizhao didn’t think he was a very sensitive person in the past, but every time he touched Shen Yuhuai’s hand, he couldn’t help being attracted by these subtle touches.
“Go down a bit.”
“It is a bit itchy.”
Chen Qizhao’s face was a bit red. It wasn’t known if it was from the warm wind or Shen Yuhuai. “Don’t hold back.”
“Then what should I do?” Shen Yuhuai asked with a smile.
“..You should touch it more.”
“Yes.” Shen Yuhuai lowered his eyes and pinched the back of Chen Qizhao’s white and beautiful neck. “Where do you want me to touch?”
The wetness of the short hair disappeared in a short time, but the farce of the night wasn’t over yet. The effect of teasing and igniting was fierce at certain times. Chen Qizhao hooked an arm around Shen Yuhuai’s neck and kissed him. His rapid breathing spread between the two of them. As his loose pajamas were pulled away, Chen Qizhao felt that tonight was extraordinarily long.
It was longer than any other time they had done it.
Shen Yuhuai’s movements in the past were very gentle. However, tonight was the first time he was so meticulous and slow.
He also liked to kiss Chen Qizhao very much. Chen Qizhao had obviously already taken a shower, but when the kiss was over, Chen Qizhao felt that he was full of the smell of Shen Yuhuai. Finally, he couldn’t hold back. As he was pressed to the pillow, he was still thinking, ‘Have I been to the gym less often recently?’
In the middle of the night, Shen Yuhuai took Chen Qizhao to take another shower. By the time they came out, Chen Qizhao was already asleep and lying on the bed without any defense.
Shen Yuhuai covered him with a quilt. Then he brought his laptop over and continued his unfinished work on the bed. It was just that the sound of steady breathing from the side made Shen Yuhuai look at him many times. Chen Qizhao liked to sleep on his side. Once curled up, he looked like an insecure little animal. It was only at this time that he let go of all his defenses and became harmless.
Perhaps it was due to the post-it note, but Shen Yuhuai’s mind today was full of the incident at the research institute last year. He thought of how he watched Chen Qizhao capture He Shuhang in the distance and then pretending to be stupid afterward, like an innocent little fox. Some expressions were vivid. The details of the relationship between the two of them were revealed little by little.
In words and actions, there was a heaviness that Shen Yuhuai couldn’t understand.
Chen Qizhao knew him well and protected him.
But this was a secret that Chen Qizhao was unwilling to express. Shen Yuhuai didn’t want to take the initiative to expose it.
Shen Yuhuai’s hands moved up slightly from Chen Qizhao’s shoulder. He gently stroked the soft hair and brushed away some of the hair that somewhat concealed his forehead. He traced Chen Qizhao’s face little by little, from the brow bone to the tip of his nose. It was as if he was engraving this person in his memories with his finger movements.
This was until his fingertips rested on Chen Qizhao’s lips and the hot air from the tip of Chen Qizhao’s nose sprayed on his fingertips.
The sleeping boy rolled over and turned his back completely to him.
Shen Yuhuai’s eyes froze slightly. His slightly drooping eyes were full of tenderness. “Good night.”
The lights in the room were turned off. The man lay down and noticed there was no sound behind him.
Chen Qizhao, who was pretending to be asleep, opened his eyes slightly. Then he licked his lower lip. The feeling of Shen Yuhuai’s touch still seemed to be there.
For some reason, he didn’t want to say something after being woken up by this person touching him. He endured it for as long as Shen Yuhuai touched him. He was so sore that he didn’t have the energy to fight with Shen Yuhuai again. He wondered why Shen Yuhuai’s physical strength was so good. Shen Yuhuai didn’t usually look like he went to the gem. He looked elegant, but his waist strength and physical strength were beyond his imagination.
He didn’t quite understand. It was a bit outrageous.
Chen Qizhao was thinking wildly. He was about to reach out and scratch his nose when a hand behind him reached out and pulled him into his arms for a hug.
His whole body froze. He felt the body against his back, followed by the sound of steady breathing close at hand.
Chen Qizhao: “……”
Shen Yuhuai fell asleep.
…Meanwhile, he couldn’t sleep.
