Qi Le struggled for a long time, then, a hint of mischief flashed in his eyes. “What happens if they end up being sent to the psychiatric department again because of what I said? What if their families got upset and gave me a beating?”
Gu Bai nodded, keeping his gaze on him. Qi Le pretended to be calm: “What’s wrong?”
“I can sort of see why you and Xiao Le are friends, if that were really true. The way you talk is very similar to him.” Gu Bai eyed him, “But I remember that you weren’t like this before.” He added faintly, “Maybe it’s because I didn’t know you well.”
Qi Le broke out in cold sweat again and tried to laugh it off, He quietly lay back down and secretly observed Gu Bai. Seeing that the man didn’t doubt his explanation, he couldn’t help but let out a sigh of relief, thinking to himself that unless someone had personally experienced it, who would believe in such a mysterious thing?
The day passed amicably. In the evening, Mr. Elite returned. He looked Gu Bai in the eye and both men smiled. Qi Le asked in a low voice, “Do you know him?”
“I’ve met him a few times.” Gu Bai placed dinner on the table and asked, “You still don’t remember anything?”
Qi Le looked at the food bought from the cafeteria and thought to himself, what’s this fucking difference in treatment ah! When he had been hospitalized before, this person wouldn’t let him eat from the cafeteria.… He opened the packet of food in front of him, “I don’t remember.”
Gu Bai nodded and got up. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”
Qi Le waved at him and decided to run away from the hospital tonight. Once he finished painting and writing the letter, he could pass it to Gu Bai tomorrow evening or the morning after tomorrow when he was discharged from the hospital.
Mr. Elite looked at the closed door and turned to Qi Le. “Why would Gu Bai take care of you when there are so many bottoms in the circle lining up to jump into bed with him?”
We’re sorry for MTLers or people who like using reading mode, but our translations keep getting stolen by aggregators so we’re going to bring back the copy protection. If you need to MTL please retype the gibberish parts.
Qi Le looked dumbstruck. “Is he very well-known?”
Mr. Elite nodded. “Tall, rich and handsome, plus, he’s gentle and affectionate. Who wouldn’t like that? I heard that the person he likes is straight and he’s been in love with him for several years. I remember that a year ago, a few bottoms wanted to look for that person to tell him not to hold on to Gu Bai if he wasn’t interested. In the end, Gu Bai stopped them midway and gave them a good beating. I think that was the first time he got angry. After that, no one dared to try anything again. Apparently, that man was well protected by him. He didn’t know Gu Bai was gay and didn’t have any contact with the gay circle in C City. But now he’s willing to take care of you. Why is that?”
Qi Le listened quietly, his heart a mess of complex emotions.
Mr. Elite didn’t care that he didn’t answer. He calmly added, “You should learn from him. Both of you are so in love with someone, yet you don’t have the same good reputation that he has.”
Qi Le, “……”
Mr. Elite rubbed Yi Hang’s head, “I’ll ask the doctor when you can be discharged.”
Yi Hang saw him leave and immediately ran over to Qi Le, “Are you the one that he likes?”
Qi Le made a soft sound of acknowledgment and sighed.
“Fuck, he’s so damn into you. Why won’t you agree?”
“I’ve always regarded him as a friend.”
Yi Hang nagged, “Won’t you be upset if you can’t see him…….”
“Do you think I feel any better? He is closer to me than my relatives.”Qi Le stared at him, the rims of his eyes tinged with redness. ” Do you think it’s better for me to write him a letter and tell him to live a good life, or confess that I’m still alive, then refuse him and make him watch me get married and have children?”
Yi Hang answered, “I think it’s better to let him know that you’re alive and well… It’s much better than thinking that you’re dead……”
“And let him see my beautiful family – my virtuous wife and filial kids?” Qi Le sneered, “Then I’d rather he thought I was dead.”
“Then……” Yi Hang struggled to say, “Can’t you try to accept him?”
Qi Le didn’t refute this time. He had actually considered it a while ago. After all, that was Gu Bai. If Gu Bai was the person involved, then he wouldn’t mind giving it a try. If it really worked out, he would tell him the truth when the time came.
Qi Le saw that Yi Hang was still hanging around him and said, “Your man is discussing the matter of getting you discharged from the hospital.”
Yi Hang: “=口=”
Yi Hang went crazy, “What should I do? I don’t want to leave the hospital! Is there any way I can stay? Hit my head again like you did? ” He looked at the wall.,”I… I…. I don’t dare to….. Can you hit me on the head?”
Qi Le lowered his head and started eating. Yi Hang was close to tears as he looked at the Taoist priest, “You said it yourself, one should accumulate good karma!”
Taoist priest, “……”
Qi Le’s attention had been on Gu Bai the entire time. Naturally, he forgot that his cellphone wasn’t turned on. Therefore, he didn’t know that Ye Shuichuan and the others had almost gone mad looking for him. They had searched everywhere and asked everyone they knew but there was still no news for two days. They went through everything they knew again and realized something. According to Ye Shuichuan, Zheng Xiaoyuan had recovered his memory. But why didn’t he admit it when he woke up? When they found Baby Face, the latter had cried, saying that when Xiaoyuan had caught him kissing Ning Xiao, he had been generous enough to forgive him. They all took a deep breath at once and thought of a horrible possibility. With that, the entire circle was shocked.
So when Gu Bai left the hospital and ran into his friends from the circle, he heard one of them ask, “Something big happened. Did you hear about it?”
Gu Bai was surprised. “What happened?”
“I heard that Zheng Xiaoyuan had a hard time recovering his memory, but ended up catching those two making out again. This time, he couldn’t stand the pain any more so the next day, he got up, dressed himself and committed suicide!”
Gu Bai, “…”
When Gu Bai contacted Ye Shuichuan, a whole bunch of people rushed to the hospital with gusto. Qi Le was just getting ready to run away from the hospital and the Taoist priest had just been successfully persuaded by Yi Hang to hit him. As soon as they arrived at the ward, they saw the Taoist priest hitting Yi Hang’s head against the wall with a look of benevolence on his face. They all froze at once.
Ye Shuichuan felt his anger brewing in the silence. “Just one look and you can tell these two are fucking psychos! Never mind that there was only one of you before, but now there are two! What’s the matter with this damn hospital?!”
Yi Hang, “=口=”
Taoist priest, “……”
Gu Bai now believed that these two were indeed mentally ill. He looked at Qi Le and asked, “Where are you going?”
“…” Qi Le replied, “To the restroom…..”
