Gu Bai simply tidied up his crumpled pajamas and looked at the bedroom door from the head of the bed. Although he knew that Qi Le would be back soon, he still couldn’t resist the surging thoughts and excitement in his body. This feeling was incomparable. He still didn’t know what Xiao Le’s purpose tonight was but he was able to make a bold guess. He hadn’t grunted a warning like last night, but opened his eyes instead. Did this mean that he was ready to accept this relationship?
After years of waiting, going through life and death, he finally got him. Gu Bai’s lips curved into smiled and he felt that he had never been so contented in his life.
The first thing Qi Le saw when he came back from the bathroom was a certain someone’s smiling face. His expression froze and he subconsciously gritted his teeth. He thought to himself, with what you owe me, do you think Laozi will let you off so easily?!
Gu Bai got out of bed and brought him to his side. He looked at him a few times and stretched out his arm. “If you’re still upset, take another bite.”
Qi Le took a bite, then wiped his mouth. “I don’t have to introduce myself, do I?”
Gu Bai smiled. “No, I knew it a long time ago.”
Qi Le nodded, threw Gu Bai’s arm aside, got up and left. “Laozi wants to go back to my own room to sleep.”
Gu Bai quickly pressed him back to bed and held him firmly in his arms from behind, asking with a smile. “You’re going to sleep now? It was so difficult for you to come clean. Don’t you want to have a talk?”
“Nope. Laozi has nothing to say right now…” Qi Le paused, then turned to look at him. “Where did my parents moved to?” Ever since he was reborn, he had suffered one setback after another. His days were getting more and more weird and his bottom line was constantly being tested and lowered. Plus, having heard his confession with his own ears, he couldn’t show his identity and had to postpone inquiring about his parents’ address. Now was the right time.
“I don’t know exactly where in S city they live,” Gu Bai caressed his head. “My parents should know. Even if they don’t know, they should have their new contact numbers. I’ll help you find out.”
Qi Le nodded, his eyes deep with emotion.
Gu Bai looked at him sideways and tightened his arms around him. “Are you afraid?”
Qi Le didn’t deny that. Firstly, he didn’t know what to say. Secondly, he wasn’t yet clear about his feelings for Gu Bai. But in case they did get together, he wasn’t sure about his parents’ attitude towards this matter so of course he was afraid. He broke his parents’ hearts because of his illness in his previous life and now that he was reborn, he was about to upset them again. He was too unfilial.

Gu Bai thought for a moment. “School is about to start soon. After the term starts, you have to take your make-up exam. C city and S city are quite far apart. If we go on a two-day weekend trip by plane, we can stay in S city for one night at most. National Day is fine, but we have to wait for more than a month. What do you think?”
“Let’s go as soon as possible then. I’ll take the exam first. You ask for their cellphone number and address to see how we should arrange our schedule. If conditions permit, I can skip class.”
“Mmm, I’ll go with you.”
Qi Le pushed his arms away and got up. “I’m going to sleep.”
“Why do you want to sleep so early?” Gu Bai took him back into his arms again, “Let’s keep chatting.”
“…” Qi Le said, “I have nothing to say, thank you.”
“You do.” Gu Bai looked at him and asked with a smile, “What do you think about us?”
“…I didn’t think anything” Qi Le dodged his gaze. Then, he suddenly looked at the front wall and couldn’t help but ask, “Where’s the painting? Take it out and hang it up. After all, it’s Laozi’s painting.”
Gu Bai asked knowingly, “Do you mean the painting with the wrong date?”
“I didn’t date it wrongly. I painted it that day itself, thank you.” Qi Le glared at him. Laugh if you dare. If you dare laugh, you’re dead!
Gu Bai looked at him and couldn’t help but lean over to kiss him on the lips. He stopped him from dodging from his line of sight and looked at him unblinkingly, his eyes deep, “Be with me, okay?”
Qi Le felt his heart skip a beat. He remained silent for a long time and finally nodded. “I will consider.”
Gu Bai looked at him with a smile. “Then, I’ll take it that you agree.”
“…” Qi Le asked, “Is there something wrong with your ears?”
“No. Since you’re willing to give in, I think it’s more important to strike while the iron is hot. Who knows how long you’ll take to think about it.” Gu Bai’s gentle eyes were filled with happiness. “We can give it a try first. So, that’s settled then.”
Qi Le, “……”
Qi Le forcefully broke out of his embrace and jumped up before Gu Bai could pull him back. “Goodnight, Laozi is going to sleep.” He turned and left at once. He took a few steps only to find that a certain someone was following him. He couldn’t help but turn around and ask, “Why are you following me?”
Gu Bai looked calm, “I’m going back to sleep.”
“… Go back to your bedroom to sleep.” Qi Le entered his own room and looked at him before closing the door, “Oh, if you dare sneak in again in the middle of the night, Laozi will chop off your thing!”
“…” Gu Bai watched him slam the door shut and suddenly felt a little helpless at his temper. He figured that he wouldn’t be able to hug Qi Le to sleep within this period of time. If he knew that earlier, he would’ve taken more advantage of him.
Qi Le jumped into his long-lost bed, rolled back and forth and quickly went to sleep. He woke up very early the next day. As soon as he opened his eyes, he saw a face in front of him and immediately fell silent.
Gu Bai lay beside him and asked with a grin, “You’re awake?”
“…” Qi Le cried out, “Erquan, did Laozi’s words fall on deaf ears?!”
Gu Bai caressed him as he held him in his arms and explained, “I just came in. I’m waiting for you to have breakfast.”
Qi Le looked at him and saw that he was all dressed. He felt that it should be true after all. Then, he nodded, got out of bed and drifted to the bathroom to wash up. Gu Bai followed him, leaning against the bathroom door and watching him quietly. Qi Le quickly washed up, wiped his face with a towel, and asked, “What are you standing here for… Mmm, hnn…”
Gu Bai grabbed his chin and gave him a good morning kiss, then pulled him out of the bathroom, “Let’s go and have breakfast.”
Qi Le, “……”
Fucking hell, compared with his indifference some time ago, this was simply the disparity between heaven and earth! By the time Qi Le had regained his senses, he was already sitting in his chair. He looked at the rich breakfast on the table and then at the person opposite of him. He thought that things were indeed different from before.
After breakfast, Qi Le concentrated on studying. However, this time, they were sitting close together and no longer simply chatted during his break. Instead, he was held in a certain someone’s arms, caressed here and there, and occasionally kissed a few times. His heart was choppy with waves. Damn it! He used to look so gentle and refined before this. Where the hell did all these tricks come from? He patted off one of his paws and looked at him seriously, “Have you had enough?”
“This is normal now that we are in love.”
“Bullshit, when I was dating before, I only held hands,” Qi Le glared at him. “How is this the same?”
“It is. Actually, most of it is the same.” Gu Bai explained, remembering that Xiao Le and Xiao Ying had been together in the past. He thought to himself, if Xiao Le knew that Xiao Ying liked himself instead of him, would he lose his temper again? They had just gotten together, so to be on the safe side, it was better to keep this topic for the future.
Qi Le was serious. “Let’s make this clear now. Our relationship is the kind of hand-holding one, got it?”
“Oh, you’re not used to it…” Gu Bai was lost in thought as Qi Le stared at him. He thought that he would say something, such as “I’ll pay attention in the future.” However, Gu Bai only rubbed his head and comforted him gently, “It’s okay. You’ll get used to it in a couple of days.”
Qi Le, “……”
Gu Bai glanced at the time and let go of him. “Alright, continue studying.”
“…” Qi Le angrily huffed and puffed as he read his book. He scooted away from him and continued to study. Then, he was taken advantage of by a certain someone again, but this time, he found that it wasn’t as often as before. He guessed that it was due to the conversation earlier. Only then was he a little satisfied. Gu Bai smiled at him. He felt that it was a good thing he had intentionally taken advantage of him. Now, Xiao Le wouldn’t get upset and he could also argue for some benefits. It was killing two birds with one stone.
