As soon as he ended the call, Song Yi saved Gu Xingchuan’s phone number, but instead of putting the letter A in front of his name he put the letter S two times.
When he arrived at Gu Xingchuan’s home, Song Yi opened the door to the living room.
The curtain was pulled halfway, only some of the light went through. The afternoon sun was warm.
Gu Xingchuan was lazily leaning on the sofa, holding a game controller in his hand and looking at the big TV set on the wall with great concentration.
The sound of gunshots could be heard, “bang bang bang bang”.
It was a popular game nowadays; Song Yi swept a glance at the TV screen then leisurely went to the kitchen to wash the fruit.
He carefully cut them, put them in a plate and placed them on the coffee table.
Leaning on the sofa, Gu Xingchuan’s flexible fingers skillfully manipulated the game controller.
He then tilted his neck, opened his mouth showing his thin lips and white teeth and said: “Give one piece of sweet orange.”
Song Yi took the fruit fork indulgently and placed it in front of Gu Xingchuan’s mouth; the latter tilted his head and took a light bite, his eyes never leaving the TV screen throughout this whole time.
“Avocado, dipped in honey.”
Song Yi’s attitude remained unchangingly positive and so Gu Xingchuan did whatever he wanted.
However, Gu Xingchuan was surprised that Song Yi was suddenly acting so well today.
He kept staring at him while playing the game.
Song Yi slightly smiled at his gaze. He was being kind and gentle.
Suddenly the air grew silent for a few seconds.
Gu Xingchuan felt a cold chill behind his back and became a little wary: “Don’t you get any crooked ideas!”
Song Yi did not comment; he just lightly smiled and asked: “What else do you want to eat?”
It’s best to kill you a thousand times, lest I kill you myself.
Gu Xingchuan is not quite used to this, he felt uncomfortable.
He turned his head and said with a stiff voice:”I told my agent that I was injured and had to cancel the concert, and he immediately went to monitor the surveillance cameras in the underground parking lot.”
Song Yi didn’t doubt this.
When they were in high school, they were often messing with each other because of Shen Li; today you draw boobs on my homework book, tomorrow I’ll put a centipede in your backpack, but they have never told on each other or got their parents involved.
“I know” Song Yi nodded.
The TV screen was bright gold as Gu Xingchuan’s game ended. He stretched out and looked at Song Yi: “Did you call Shen Li?”
“Yes but my call didn’t get through.”
Song Yi had called him many times since that day, and none of his calls had gone through; Shen Li’s phone had been switched off.
The first few days Song Yi had been furious and angry at Shen Li for playing with his emotions like this.
But now after such a long time, Song Yi was more worried about whether something had happened to Shen Li.
Gu Xingchuan frowned: “His phone has been turned off, do you have any other way to contact him?”
“Aren’t you two together now? How am I supposed to know if the boyfriend doesn’t know?” Song Yi seized every opportunity to retaliate.
Gu Xingchuan didn’t look too good and said in a rough voice: “You love to talk, don’t you?”
That morning, Gu Xingchuan thought that Shen Li was just shy and hiding.
He called him a few times but even though he didn’t get to talk to him, he didn’t give it much thought.
The more time passed, the more Shen Li seemed to have disappeared from the face of the earth.
Gu Xingchuan entrusted a few of his friends who had good connections with the task of finding out where Shen Li had gone, but no one could find him.
That night seemed like a beautiful dream.
Gu Xingchuan couldn’t recall Shen Li’s face, but he missed the warm, sweet pheromones of his enchanting body.
