Zhou Sheng took the phone, hung up, placed one arm around Yu Hao, and openly hugged him in that position. He said with a stern countenance, “Okay, ignore her. Keep talking.”
“Can you defeat Medusa now?” Yu Hao asked.
“I think I might be able to.” Zhou Sheng stated truthfully, “But I haven’t wanted to challenge her recently. When I go next time, I’ll call you. Trust me.”
Yu Hao nodded. Zhou Sheng continued, “By then, I should have thought very clearly about our future. You’re really great, Yu Hao.”
Yu Hao didn’t know whether to cry or laugh, “What’s so great?”
“Being with you.” Zhou Sheng’s hand moved from Yu Hao’s waist to his back, then it pressed against the nape of Yu Hao’s neck, “I just think it’s so great to be alive……can I kiss you? I can’t hold back anymore.”
“We’re outside!” Yu Hao quickly said.
“It’s not like there’s anyone else around.”
Zhou Sheng had one arm around Yu Hao’s waist when he glimpsed Xue Long come to a stop in the distance, staring doubtfully at the two of them.
“Hello Xue Laoshi!” Zhou Sheng greeted.
Xue Long lowered his phone and said from afar, “Not going home for the holidays?”
Zhou Sheng said, “Nope! Bye bye na!”
Xue Long left.
Yu Hao said, “Put your hand down……did he take a picture of us just now?”
Zhou Sheng said, “He was taking pictures of the flowers! Don’t create imaginary fears with your suspicions. It would’ve been even more strange if I put my hand down as soon as I saw him when we were just innocently hugging each other.”
Yu Hao said, “He’ll tell your father! Just like with the scholarship last time.”
“Can’t our hugging each other just be considered as a joke? Won’t Gege occasionally hug Xia Lei and the rest too, and even pinch their faces?” Zhou Sheng said, unconcerned, “Come, let’s kiss once.”
Yu Hao quickly said, “No kissing! He might come back!” Personally, this matter wouldn’t affect him; at most he would just let other people talk behind his back, he was used to it anyway. But it was different for Zhou Sheng! His father might come and cause trouble for them once he found out.
“Do you find me annoying?” Zhou Sheng asked, “Is our relationship something to be ashamed about?”
“Of course not!” Yu Hao was gloomy now and said after he thought it over, “I just don’t want to get into trouble over nothing.”

Zhou Sheng was a little sulky. After Yu Hao confirmed that Xue Long had left, and that there was no one around, he kissed Zhou Sheng on his cheek. Zhou Sheng blushed again and looked at Yu Hao. His mood had immediately improved.
Yu Hao actually couldn’t really stand it either; ever since he got together with Zhou Sheng, he released several times while he was asleep. In the past, it used to be once every ten days, but now he was so stimulated in the daytime that he couldn’t even last a week.
“When are we going to do that?” Zhou Sheng was a bit short of breath, “My mind’s full of you everyday, I’m on the verge of exploding.”
“Ah?” Yu Hao said, “I’m waiting for you?”
Zhou Sheng, “Oh, I’m waiting for you. Didn’t you say that you had to mentally prepare yourself?”
“I’m gay, what kind of mental preparation do I need……”
“Then I’m gay too.” Zhou Sheng said, “What kind of place do you like? Is it ok to get a room outside? Gege should be going home during the holidays ba? If you don’t mind it, is the dorm okay? I know you don’t like getting a room, and the dorm will always be cleaner than anything outside, it’s just that the bed’s too small.”
“Gege’s not going home, he said so yesterday.” Yu Hao said with a blank expression.
“Then ask him to go to the Internet cafe?” Zhou Sheng said.
“Don’t talk about it here……” Yu Hao’s face was completely red. The two of them were like animals in heat when they shamelessly discussed joining their bodies out in the open, it was really too mortifying.
He pulled down his sports pants, got up, and took off on his skateboard again. Zhou Sheng smiled as he watched him. Yu Hao skateboarded for awhile, then looked back and said to Zhou Sheng, “I still want to work part-time.”
“Go ahead.” Zhou Sheng said, “Find something more relaxing, we’ll do it together.”
Yu Hao was very preoccupied over the moment where Xue Long had lowered his phone. Perhaps he had already taken a photo. He could only hope that he wouldn’t be too meddlesome and send the photo to Zhou Sheng’s father. Still, Zhou Sheng had just hugged him around his waist. They already had a closer than usual relationship, so they could just explain it as a joke between guys even if they were found out.
On the last day before the National Day holiday, everyone was around in the dormitory. Cen Shan went for her seclusion-style training while Fu Liqun’s parents went abroad for a holiday, so he had to stay in the dormitory. Before the holidays, Papa Fu and Mama Fu especially came to their dormitory to visit them and even brought a lot of food with them to thank Yu Hao and Zhou Sheng for taking care of Fu Liqun.
“Yes! That’s how you wash them!” Fu Liqun’s mother had her hands on her hips as she taught her son how to wash socks and underwear, “Rub it thrice! Knead it twice! Don’t knead it like dough! Baby! Tell Mum! Don’t lie, okay?! How did you wash those clothes that are hanging out to dry? It couldn’t have been washed by you! Who helped you washed them? Yu Hao or Zhou Sheng?!”
Zhou Sheng and Yu Hao got a fright when they entered the dormitory. Mama Fu said, “Which one of you is Yu Hao? You, are you Yu Hao?”
Yu Hao trembled as he raised his hand, and Fu Liqun tossed him a glance filled with fear. Mama Fu immediately said, “Yu Hao, Aunt is really grateful towards you, Aunt feels so moved. But, you can’t help him wash his socks and underwear, you know? He needs to do his own things himself! School can’t be compared to home. Baby, your dorm mates aren’t your parents, they’re not obliged to do this for you. I don’t think you clean up your dorm either, and when you get married to Shanshan, I bet you’ll want to be like your Dad and become a husband who doesn’t do anything! Be honest, you don’t know how to do housework, you aren’t doing very well in your studies either……”
Yu Hao, “……”
Zhou Sheng, “……”
“It has already been awhile……since I touched the sink.” Yu Hao quickly clarified, “Uh, I did wash them a few times in the past.”
After Yu Hao and Zhou Sheng got together, all the housework was basically done by Zhou Sheng. However, Yu Hao and Zhou Sheng would occasionally see Fu Liqun’s underwear and socks soaking in the basin. Sometimes, it would remain soaking in the sink for up to three days. When they really couldn’t bear to look at it any longer, they would help him out with it while they washed theirs too.
Papa Fu pulled Zhou Sheng over and talked to him for a long time, and also thanked him for cooking for his son. Yu Hao felt like Fu Liqun’s father had a temperament that somewhat resembled Lin Xun’s — his scholarly air was very apparent. Of course, unlike Lin Xun that scum, he was a gentle and knowledgeable intellectual.
It wasn’t easy for Fu Liqun to send them out before Zhou Sheng’s mother once again called. This time, Yu Hao had to take it. He didn’t know when Zhou Sheng’s mom had started to indirectly control Zhou Sheng though Yu Hao and always asked Yu Hao to get Zhou Sheng to do this and that. This time, she was calling to ask Yu Hao to take Zhou Sheng home for the holidays.
Mama Zhou said, “I have something important to tell Zhou Sheng and get his opinion on, Haohao? Is he there?”
“Why are you still on the phone! Hang up!” Zhou Sheng cried bitterly, “We’re going out to eat!”
Yu Hao was still talking on his side, but Zhou Sheng picked up another call. Zhou Laichun called him and asked if he was going home for the long holidays. Zhou Sheng replied that he wasn’t. Zhou Laichun asked him to go to the company to accompany him for a meal, but Zhou Sheng refused.
“I’m taking a bath.” Zhou Sheng said, “Hanging up now.”
“You’re spending the holiday with your dormitory mate?” Zhou Laichun asked.
“Yeah.” Zhou Sheng asked, “Is there a problem?”
Zhou Laichun didn’t didn’t say anything else, and Zhou Sheng went to take a bath. Before he went, his mother was still talking to Yu Hao nonstop, and they were still on the phone even after he finished taking his bath.
“Stop talking to her.” Zhou Sheng said.
But Yu Hao waved his hand and tried to chat patiently with his mother for awhile. Yu Hao was sitting on the swivel chair. Zhou Sheng was bare chested as he sat on Yu Hao’s desk; he stepped on the swivel chair and pulled Yu Hao towards him. He lightly pressed against both sides of Yu Hao’s waist with his bare feet.
“Say a few words to her ba.” Yu Hao handed the phone to Zhou Sheng. Zhou Sheng casually dealt with her by saying that he was working during the holidays.
“If you want to get married then go!” Zhou Sheng said, “You have my utmost support! Stop calling Yu Hao all day! He’s busy with his studies! I’m hanging up!” Then he hung up without a moment’s hesitation.
Yu Hao said, “She’s pretty lonely, chat with her once in awhile ba.”
Zhou Sheng, “I get high altitude sickness as soon as I hear her voice, I’ll instantly become dizzy and breathless. Could you take some pity on your Hubby? I know you feel bad about digging up the handsome cabbage in her vegetable garden, but the owner had never been serious about planting it in the first place, and the cabbage fled by himself. If you dug it up, then so be it, you don’t need to compensate her, okay?”
When Yu Hao realised that Zhou Sheng was indirectly calling him a pig, his face was immediately filled with black lines.
“Your father called just now? It can’t be that he knows ba.”
“What are you feeling so guilty for?” Zhou Sheng said, “Are you afraid that the owner of the garden will chase after us and hire hitmen to come break our legs?”
Yu Hao has always been good at inventing things to worry about based on his misgivings. He was never guilty in the past, but now that he had bent someone’s son, he was constantly afraid that his parents would come knocking on his door to get even with him and accuse him of ruining Zhou Sheng’s brilliant prospects and so on. But fortunately, Zhou Sheng separated his parents and circle of friends long ago, and the picture of the ferris wheel after the confession was tagged with a few lines that seemed like lyrics. His mother was completely unaware of it and continued nagging him as usual by asking him all sorts of questions. Still, Yu Hao couldn’t help but jump a little in fright whenever he saw her calls.
Zhou Sheng might say that it didn’t matter on the surface, but he knew very clearly in his heart that Xue Long could have sent the photo to Zhou Laichun as soon as he left the school. Even before this, they had been the subject of multiple rumors. Chen Yekai was rumoured to be gay as well, and it’s not like there weren’t any rumours about the relationship between Chen Yekai and Yu Hao……and now it could no longer be said to be just a rumour. Perhaps Xue Long, like many other students, already imagined a dog blood scenario with Yu Hao failing in his pursuit of Chen Yekai, so he changed his target and attacked Zhou Sheng, the rich second generation.
But he didn’t intend to mention this to Yu Hao. After all, protecting Yu Hao was his own business, so there was no reason to worry him.
“From now on, I’ll follow you all the time, okay?” After Zhou Sheng packed his things, he said to Yu Hao, “I can take on 10 by myself. If he dares oppose our relationship, I’ll report him for tax evasion, and place righteousness before my blood ties!”
Yu Hao, “……”
“Xue Long wouldn’t dare to.” Zhou Sheng continued, “Unless he took a photo of us kissing. I’ll try my best to restrain myself more outside next time. If I start getting fresh with you again, just slap me.”
Yu Hao said, “I can’t bear to do that, just get fresh with me ba……”
Yu Hao sat on the swivel chair and faced Zhou Sheng, who was bare chested and only wearing a pair of shorts. The scent that wafted off his body smelled very pleasant. He raised his head slightly, and they looked at each other for a while.
Yu Hao, “???”
“Hungry?” Zhou Sheng said.
“I’m okay……” Yu Hao remembered something, but Zhou Sheng didn’t let him move, so Yu Hao put his hands around Zhou Sheng’s waist and looked up at him, “What’s wrong? Not happy?”
Zhou Sheng said, “Wanna eat a popsicle?”
Yu Hao, “You bought it?”
Soon after, Zhou Sheng casually untied the knot on his beach pants.
Yu Hao, “!!!!”
“Gege will come back……”
“He’s waiting for us at the restaurant.” Zhou Sheng whispered, “He won’t come back.”
Yu Hao never expected that Zhou Sheng would be this bold. Usually, he took baths with a mint-flavoured Adidas shower gel, so he often had a cool mint smell on his body. But the scene that unfolded before Yu Hao still gave him a very strong impact.
