Awkward Chapter 1

It was late at night

Ye Mu dragged his tired body, with a paper bag hanging in his hand, and went to a villa.

Slowly taking out a key from his pants, he opened the door, put on slippers and walked to the living room.

From the inner room came a sound that made one’s ears flush.

Ye Mu was stunned, staring at the door for a while, his eyes drooping. After a long time, he slowly walked to the table and poured a glass of water to drink.

After putting down his glass of water, he found a sofa and sat down in silence.

He knew that Yan Chen had brought someone into the house.

If it were a normal situation, he would definitely go in and question him.

But this time, he was so tired that he didn’t even bother to move a finger.

His company was declared to be completely bankrupt today. Not only were his assets insufficient to cover his debts, but even implicated the Ye family’s century old industries and were also absorbed. His father was a little emotional. He had a heart attack and was sent to the hospital for treatment. He just passed the dangerous period.

It all happened so suddenly that it caught him off guard.

Ye Mu was restless and stayed on the wooden bench in the hospital until wee hours before going home. Who would want to see such a heart-wrenching scene again?

Standing up, he turned off the lights in the living room, and quietly walked to the balcony to look down at the nightscape downstairs, his handsome and resolute side profile was a bit gloomy.

In silence, he took out a cigarette box from his pocket. Ye Mu used his long, thin fingers to draw a cigarette, lit it and put it on his lips and took a light sip.

The stinging taste of smoke lingered all the way around his lungs before being poured out like a long stream of water.

Looking down at the flame that was burning in his hand, Ye Mu’s curly eyelashes quivered slightly, and his eyes were as deep as the sea.

Eight years, eight whole years.

He didn’t want to deceive himself. Yan Chen never had any feelings for him. Their relationship was simply long-term fck buddies. Saying such a cruel point wasn’t rubbish. Even in those years they lived together, it was the result of his own pestering and relentless pursuit to win sympathy in exchange.

After so many years, Ye Mu himself knew that he was being cheap, but still unrepentant.

A few days ago, he went to the bank to borrow money. He could obviously use this villa as collateral, but in the end he changed his mind and used the Ye family’s old house.

His father knew that he went broke, but he didn’t expect him to be so bad as to use the property left by his ancestors as collateral. He cursed out that he was a bastard. He was so angry that he couldn’t even catch his breath after shouting and proceeded to cough hard.

Ye Mu watched his father fall down on the sofa clutching his chest, and felt that he was indeed unfilial this time, but he never regretted it.

Some things have already been determined. The two people in this villa have lived together for so many years, and definitely, he was reluctant to put it as collateral and shouldn’t be used as the collateral.

There was no doubt that he, Ye Mu, saw Yan Chen as more important than anyone else.

To put it nicely, it was love.

To put it harshly, it was cheap, and also the kind of lowliness that was up to the bone.

He is rushing to disregard you, but you insist on begging for affection with no sense of shame. If this isn’t holding oneself cheap, then what is it?

In real life, many people expressed a lack of understanding of this kind of behavior, but when it came to certain individuals with extreme thoughts, it could be easily understood.

Because of cherishing you a lot, because of liking you too much, no matter how indifferent you are to me, as long as you are with me it’s good, as long as I can see you often it’s good.

Yet Ye Mu was this kind of person.

And a typical madman among such people.

The cigarette butt in his hand had already burned out. Ye Mu lowered his eyes and watched the fire burn his fingers and laughed mockingly at himself, not intending to pursue Yan Chen’s cheating. In fact, he wasn’t qualified to pursue any of the other party’s actions.

As he went back into the living room, he sat down on the sofa and lay flat, resting one wrist on his forehead and waiting for dawn with his eyes open.


The door of the room opened suddenly, and a handsome man in a black sweater walked out of it. His narrow, long and deep phoenix eyes became very estranged after sweeping a glance at Ye Mu on the side.

Ye Mu wiped his face when he heard the sound. He dragged his tired and exhausted body to support himself to stand up. He walked to the table and opened the paper bag, his tone was as easy-going as usual, “I bought a midnight snack, want to have some?”

“No need.”

Yan Chen looked indifferent, walked over and casually threw a bank card in front of him, “One hundred million, disappear from my sight in the future.”

Ye Mu was stunned and lowered his eyes to look at the card. He didn’t move for a long time.

Yan Chen looked straight ahead and was silent for a moment, his voice was magnetic and low, “Gu Huai has returned to China.”

Ye Mu somewhat tiredly closed his eyes, lit a cigarette and leaned against the wall. The curling white mist blurred his handsome outline, slowly he spat out words, “You’re together?”

Yan Chen glanced at him, “It’s none of your business anymore.”

“When did it happen?”

Yan Chen’s tone was cold, “This also has nothing to do with you.”

Ye Mu lowered his head and was silent.

The atmosphere appeared unusually quiet as the two men stood facing each other.

Ye Mu opened his mouth after a long time, his voice seemed very calm, “I see.”

After he said these words, he didn’t speak again, just silently smoking.

Yan Chen frowned and looked at him somewhat helplessly, “Smoke less.”

Ye Mu gloomily hooked his lips and slowly enunciated the words, “Gu Huai family and our family have always been at odds, this time the Ye family bankruptcy, you have made a lot of efforts behind the scenes, right?”

Yan Chen didn’t avoid. He let out a faint hum with no fluctuation in his voice, “As long as it is what he wants, I will try my best to help him achieve it.”

Ye Mu glanced at him, his voice was a little hoarse, and his lips curled up in a self-deprecating arc, “After so long, even granted that you raise a dog, you should have feelings. If you can be this ruthless, it seems that I am not even as good as a dog.”

Yan Chen stared fixedly at him, his thin lips slightly lifted and moved, but in the end he didn’t speak.

Ye Mu pinched off the cigarette butt and took another one out of the cigarette box. He lit it and took a strong sip, it stayed in his mouth but he didn’t spit it out after a long time.

Yan Chen looked at him with no emotion in his dark phoenix eyes, “Think what you want. Gu Huai likes this villa very much. State your price and I will buy it.”

“No thanks, since he likes it, just give it to him.” Ye Mu said numbly.

Yan Chen glanced at him, “No need, it will be credited in your account at twice the market price later on.”

Ye Mu lowered his eyelashes, his long and narrow eyes were half squinted by the smoke. He reached out and stuffed the card into the other party’s shirt pocket.

“As you wish, but this one hundred million is nothing, you just want me to go, you don’t have to use this disgusting way.”

Yan Chen looked at him coldly, “Are you sure you won’t stick around?”

Ye Mu smiled, threw away the cigarette butt and stepped on it fiercely, “Enough is enough, Yan Chen, it’s been eight years, and I’m tired.”

Yan Chen was expressionless, “It’s better to be this way.”

Ye Mu kept his head down without making a sound and left.
