There was no vibration, but it seemed to shake the hearts of the two people.
Before Chen Qizhao made a move, Yan Kailin’s actions were one step faster than his brain. He directly pressed a few times on the red reject button. He only let go when the voice call interface disappeared.
Chen Qizhao wondered, “…What are you doing?”
Yan Kailin was almost speechless, “Can this be picked up? Something will happen if you do so.”
Chen Qizhao had never rejected Shen Yuhuai’s call. The moment the word ‘rejected’ appeared on the chat record, he had a headache and looked at Yan Kailin with hatred. “Why didn’t you wait for it to ring and hang up?”
Hanging up directly and not connecting were completely different things.
Yan Kailin’s brain cleared up quickly. “F*k, my hand was too fast. I told my brother today that I was going to the library to study. Finally, he stopped staring at me for the past two weeks. If he knew that I drank at night and wasn’t planning to go back to my room, I would be finished tomorrow.”
Yan Kaiqi’s control over Yan Kailin had relaxed a bit over this time. The most important thing was that Yan Kailin was smart and hadn’t been caught by Yan Kaiqi for a long time. Yan Kaiqi relaxed his supervision, and even his pocket money was doubled. It didn’t matter if he was caught by others, but encountering Shen Yuhuai was the same as encountering his brother.
“I’ll go first.” Chen Qizhao didn’t look at the word ‘rejected.’ He put his phone into his pocket and was about to leave.
Yan Kailin was dumbfounded. “Wait, Brother. Should I run with you?”
Chen Qizhao paused. “What running?”
“This isn’t running? What are you going to do if Shen Yuhuai finds you?”
“……” Chen Qizhao said, “You do as you wish. I’m leaving.”
At the drinking party, Cheng Rong was still drinking with others. Liu Kai was half slumped on the sofa. He held a wine bottle and talked weakly.
Chen Qizhao was calling for a car to come over. He and Yan Kailin were drinking tonight, so he called a car when he came here. It took some time to call a car. It wasn’t long before the gate of the school was closed. He didn’t have long to wait for the car to come. He could only call an online car-hailing service. However, he didn’t know what day it was today, but there was actually a queue for it.
“Isn’t this outrageous?” Yan Kailin looked at the phone interface. “There are still three people in line!”
Chen Qizhao exited the software. Once he saw the VX interface, he was a bit irritable. “I’ll call Xiao Zhou. He lives in this neighborhood.”
Yan Kailin asked, “Can I get in the car?”
Qin Yunxuan was next to them. He saw the two people with different expressions. The expressions of these two people had become very strange since they read the phone messages.
He approached. “Is there anything I can help you with?”
Chen Qizhao glanced at him.
“My assistant is outside. He didn’t drink.” Qin Yunxuan smiled brightly. “If you don’t mind, I can give you a ride if there is an emergency.”
Qin Yunxuan’s bad thoughts were written on his face. Chen Qizhao didn’t have time to play with this person and was thinking of going out.
At this time, his phone rang again, and Shen Yuhuai’s name popped up.
As they were playing a game, a few people noticed the movement here. Yan Kailin finished speaking and immediately said, “Everyone, don’t shout. Be quiet.”
This was the second floor of the bar. The outside was full of deafening music. The private room was relatively quiet, but the sound insulation was average.
Chen Qizhao took a few steps inside and answered the phone bravely. “Hello?”
“Why did you reject the call?”
Shen Yuhuai’s voice sounded as usual, but Chen Qizhao’s heart was empty when he heard it.
The others in the private room looked at each other while Qin Yunxuan looked at Chen Qizhao curiously.
Cheng Rong waved his hand to calm everyone else down and mouthed to Yan Kailin.
Cheng Rong desperately asked with his eyes, ‘What is the situation?!’
Yan Kailin’s face was ashen. “Shen Yuhuai is calling.’
“I accidentally clicked on the button on my phone just now. I am about to take a taxi.” Chen Qizhao pinched between his eyebrows and lied in an unchanged tone. “I might not be able to get back in time. I am waiting in line for a taxi.”
Shen Yuhuai asked, “Where are you?”
Chen Qizhao replied, “I might not be able to go back in time, so I will take a taxi and queue.”
Shen Yuhuai repeated, “Where are you? I’ll pick you up.”
Chen Qizhao had a slight headache. “…Longhua Avenue.”
Yan Kailin: “!!!”
After he finished speaking, the other person hung up the phone.
Yan Kailin hurriedly wondered, “Why did you just say that? There is the bar on Longhua Avenue.”
Chen Qizhao was dumbfounded. “I didn’t tell him that I came to the bar. He wouldn’t have thought of this.”
“What if he thinks of it?”
Chen Qizhao: “……”
Telling one lie required telling countless lies to make up for it. Chen Qizhao thought that drinking was fine. He didn’t drink much, and it was okay to drink once in a while. It wasn’t like Shen Yuhuai had never seen him drinking before. What was he panicking about? Just say that Cheng Rong’s friends came out to celebrate his birthday, and it would be fine to go back before the gate control.
He thought to himself and put his phone in his pocket. Then he looked down, sniffed his collar, and turned to go out.
Yan Kailin hurriedly grabbed him. “Brother, where are you going?”
“…I’m going to the bathroom.”
Yan Kailin told him, “I’m going too.”
“…I’m going to wash my face.”
His body was full of the smell of alcohol. He didn’t drink much, but the private room smelled of alcohol. He washed his face in the bathroom, lowered his head, and smelled it several times. He felt that his clothes were still smelly. Fortunately, he wore a coat when he went out today. Not long after this, he took off his coat.
After washing his face and lingering in the bathroom for a while, he felt for the sugar in his pocket and put it in his mouth to taste.
The delay was around 10 minutes. He thought it would take around half an hour to get here from S College. Just after finishing up, he hurried back to the private room. He had just walked to the door of the private room when he saw a man dressed in clothes that didn’t suit the surroundings.
A white t-shirt and black pants. He looked gentle and elegant.
A waiter at the bar was standing next to the man. He seemed to notice the footsteps and quickly raised his head to look at Chen Qizhao.
The two of them looked at each other. The candy in Chen Qizhao’s mouth was directly shattered with a click.
Shen Yuhuai’s gaze was glued to Chen Qizhao. Chen Qizhao was uncomfortable being watched by him. After hesitating in place for a few seconds, he could only bite the bullet and walk up. He had just approached when he heard the conversation between Shen Yuhuai and the waiter.
The waiter asked, “Sir? Sir?”
Shen Yuhuai turned his head to look at the person.
The waiter said, “Mr Cheng Rong’s private room is here.”
Shen Yuhuai nodded slightly. “Okay, I troubled you.”
The waiter left quickly, and Chen Qizhao stood opposite Shen Yuhuai.
Chen Qizhao’s explanation was stuck in his throat and couldn’t be spoken. Shen Yuhuai said first, “I didn’t see you on the road. Previously when you picked up, I noticed there was music in the background. I came in to ask when I saw this bar.”
“Oh.” Chen Qizhao lowered his head, and his teeth moved against the broken candy in his mouth. “I originally wanted to wait for you outside. Today is the birthday of Cheng Rong’s friend. I came out with them for a bit. I planned to go back soon.”
Shen Yuhuai’s eyes stopped on Chen Qizhao’s face, and he noticed that there were still a few undried traces of water on his forehead. “Yes.”
Chen Qizhao didn’t dare to look up. He started to explain, “I didn’t intentionally hang up the phone just now. I was careless…”
At this time, the door of the private room suddenly opened, and Yan Kailin’s voice came from far to near.
Chen Qizhao and Shen Yuhuai involuntarily looked to the side.
Yan Kailin held the door with one hand. His head was tilted to talk to someone in the private room. “My brother has been in the bathroom for too long. He doesn’t have time to run back here, so I will go to him.”
He planned to go out once he said this. Then when he turned his head back around, he saw two people standing at the door.
Shen Yuhuai looked at him calmly.
Chen Qizhao had a cold face as if he wanted to hit this person.
Yan Kailin: “……”
Cheng Rong, who saw them through the crack in the opened door: “……”
The group of people in the private room quieted down. Yan Kailin hadn’t closed the door, so he took a few steps back. “What a coincidence. Brother Huai, are you also here to drink?”
Shen Yuhuai nodded slightly. “Yes, what a coincidence.”
The others in the private room: “……”
Shen Yuhuai’s gaze swept over the private room. He saw several people who played well with Chen Qizhao there, as well as some unfamiliar faces. He withdrew his gaze and saw Qin Yunxuan standing behind Cheng Rong.
Qin Yunxuan looked at him and nodded slightly.
Shen Yuhuai glanced at him before asking the person beside him, “Do you want to sit for a while?”
Chen Qizhao said, “I won’t sit down. I was originally planning to leave.”
Before he finished speaking, the man standing next to him reached over and took his hand.
“Then let’s go back.” Shen Yuhuai held Chen Qizhao’s hand casually and looked at Yan Kailin. “Together? Do you want me to send you back?”
Qin Yunxuan stared at the hands being held together and didn’t speak. Then he kept glancing at Shen Yuhuai.
Shen Yuhuai didn’t give him a look at all.
Yan Kailin’s desire for survival was directly full at this moment. He shook his head and said, “Cheng Rong’s car is downstairs. He will send me back to school. Brother Huai, don’t tell my brother. I just drank a few cups. I will leave now and won’t stay up all night.”
Chen Qizhao: “……”
Cheng Rong nodded cooperatively next to him to save the scene. “Let’s disperse.”
Shen Yuhuai nodded slightly. “Then let’s go.”
“We’re going.” Chen Qizhao directly took Shen Yuhuai’s hand and walked out. He didn’t know how many things Yan Kailin’s mouth would reveal, so he dragged Shen Yuhuai all the way out of the bar.
The night breeze outside the bar cleared up Chen Qizhao’s mind. He was about to let go of Shen Yuhuai’s hand, but the latter clasped it tightly.
“The car is over there,” Shen Yuhuai said.
Chen Qizhao, who had gone in the wrong direction. “Oh.”
In the car, Chen Qizhao fastened his seat belt, and the car window next to him lowered.
Shen Yuhuai sat in the driver’s seat, and his tone was as usual. “Tell me if you want to vomit.”
Chen Qizhao had a guilty conscience. “I didn’t drink much…”
Shen Yuhuai smiled and didn’t speak.
Chen Qizhao leaned toward Shen Yuhuai, but the other person didn’t come over to kiss him as before. Instead, he started the car, and the lights turned on instantly.
Longhua Avenue was in the urban area. Shen Yuhuai’s car didn’t go to S College but to the apartment in the urban area.
On the way, Chen Qizhao looked at Shen Yuhuai several times. Shen Yuhuai drove the car calmly with no anger on his face.
Shen Yuhuai wasn’t angry, but Chen Qizhao couldn’t hold himself back.
Chen Qizhao said, “I drank some alcohol in the evening, but not too much.”
“It is good that you didn’t drink too much.”
It wasn’t until he entered the underground garage that Shen Yuhuai said, “The access control time should’ve passed. Let’s stay here tonight.”
Chen Qizhao glanced at the time on his phone and couldn’t help looking at Shen Yuhuai. “Oh.”
The two of them entered the elevator, and Chen Qizhao couldn’t bear it any longer. He took the initiative to lean over and bite Shen Yuhuai’s mouth. The coat stained by alcohol was held by Chen Qizhao in his hand, and he tilted his head to kiss this person. However, Shen Yuhuai didn’t respond to him very much and just allowed him to kiss. Chen Qizhao didn’t know what came over him. He wanted to pry open the other person’s teeth, but he heard Shen Yuhuai’s low laughter.
The man’s smiling eyes could be seen under his glasses. Before Chen Qizhao could see clearly, Shen Yuhuai took the initiative to pry open his lips and teeth. The kiss wasn’t as gentle as before. He moved between Chen Qizhao’s lips and teeth, hooking him and not giving him a chance to breathe at all.
The elevator dinged as the doors opened.
Chen Qizhao held Shen Yuhuai’s waist, and the two of them walked into the house while kissing.
In the confusion, it wasn’t known whose fingerprint opened the door. The two of them fell onto the large sofa after entering. The coat in Chen Qizhao’s hand fell to the ground, and his neck was red. The alcohol seemed to rise at this time. In the gap between breaths, he opened his mouth and bit Shen Yuhuai’s Adam’s apple.
“Are you angry? In the car, why didn’t you…” Kiss me.
Chen Qizhao’s voice broke. Out of the corner of his eyes, he caught a glimpse of Shen Yuhuai opening the cabinet under the coffee table in the living room. His fingers peeled open a black plastic bag, revealing boxes of different colors inside.
“Do you want it here or back in the room?” Shen Yuhuai asked.
Chen Qizhao’s brain buzzed, and his heartbeat became faster and faster.
Later, he couldn’t tell where he was. Shen Yuhuai questioned him about tonight during the chaotic time.
“I didn’t lie to you.”
“…It is none of my business.”
“I don’t know him well. Who knows… Cheng Rong looked for him… slow down!”
Finally, his voice was a bit aggrieved. “I drank only a little bit.”
Shen Yuhuai laughed silently and kissed the side of his face. “I know. You won’t lie to me.”
In the middle of the night, Chen Qizhao answered in a confused manner as he was covered by a quilt.
Shen Yuhuai rubbed his head. “Tell me the next time you drink. I won’t refuse to let you drink.”
“I will just worry if you don’t answer the phone.”
Chen Qizhao was sleepy to death, and his voice was as weak as a mosquito. “I didn’t press the voice… I didn’t refuse your call.”
Shen Yuhuai asked, “Then what about when you told me you would be in the dormitory at night?”
Chen Qizhao half-closed his eyes. “I originally planned to go back.”
“Is that so?”
Chen Qizhao opened his eyes slightly and looked at the man beside him.
There was an orange light in the room. Chen Qizhao looked at Shen Yuhuai, and his mind was confused.
In this conversation where nothing was said, Chen Qizhao suddenly laughed and asked in a hoarse voice, “Shen Yuhuai, were you checking up on me?”
Shen Yuhuai’s hand pinching his neck stopped, and he didn’t reply immediately. It just went down Chen Qizhao’s tailbone.
His voice broke from the kiss.
It wasn’t sure who was replying to whom.
