Close To You Chapter 20

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!! (‘^)

Jie Jie: I’ll be taking a break from updating and will be back again next year! (Which is just really a few days from now, lol.) Since it’s the holidays and I’m quite busy irl going here and there, so tired TvT. Thanks for understanding^^;


Luo Lin Yuan slept through all the morning classes. At 6 am, after sharing a portion of preserved eggs, lean meat porridge, and xiaolongbao with Yu Han, he left the hospital and took a taxi home, and change into his school uniform again.

When he arrived at school, he was almost half a class late. But there were too many people in their class who spent money to attend here, and the teachers turned a blind eye to this group of rich kids. Luo Lin Yuan just calmly carried his schoolbag through the back door and sat in his seat, not looking at the teacher at all.

He fell asleep in a daze all morning, and so did Fang Xiao and the others. During lunch, Fang Xiao touched his stomach, his face turned blue with discomfort. “Last night… I drank too much.”

Alcohol drained Fang Xiao’s energy, who was still brimming with youth yesterday. The dark circles under his eyes and nasolabial folds appeared.

Luo Lin Yuan looked at Fang Xiao’s face which had aged ten years and deeply lamented that he should never drink again next time, he would become ugly.

Fang Xiao, who didn’t know that he had become ugly in his best friend’s heart, still pulled Luo Lin Yuan’s arm in an attempt to sell meng.[1]act cute “A’YuanYuan,[2]prefix used to indicate familiaritycan you help me make a bowl of soup ba. I can’t walk anymore.”

Luo Lin Yuan gave him a slightly disgusted look but still got up to make soup for someone. After experiencing a full morning’s sleep, his spirits were already much better so much so that when Yu Han appeared in the cafeteria, he actually saw him at a glance.

Yu Han wasn’t alone, but he wasn’t with Ren Yu either. Beside him was the captain of Class Ten, the two were talking with their food trays.

From a distance, Luo Lin Yuan noticed Yu Han’s fatigue, but the captain of Class Ten couldn’t see it and kept talking with no discerning eyes.

He returned to Fang Xiao with the soup, the latter looked at the little princess gratefully. He was about to compliment Luo Lin Yuan, but Luo Lin Yuan left the table directly, went to buy a cup of coffee, and walked to a place with a goal.

Fang Xiao stretched out his neck longer, and only then did he see who Luo Lin Yuan was actually delivering the coffee to.

It was Yu Han.

What on earth is going on with the relationship between these two people? Isn’t it a little too good ba? Fang Xiao muttered in his heart.

Luo Lin Yuan came back after delivering the coffee, ignoring the enthusiastic captain who wanted him to stay for a meal. Before leaving, he looked at the captain and asked, “What’s your name?”

This question is actually very rude, after all, the captain has only gone camping with him.

But Luo Lin Yuan’s temperament was too intimidating, cold, and reserved. Instead of being offended, the captain was strangely a little flattered.

He said to Luo Lin Yuan, “My name is Yang Xi.”

Luo Lin Yuan nodded his head and mentally trounced Yang Xi, who had no discerning eyes, before returning to Fang Xiao’s side.

Yang Xi squeezed his chopsticks, he clicked his tongue while looking at the departing Luo Lin Yuan, “This Classmate Luo is just a bit cold, but everything else is fine.”

Yu Han lowered his eyes and responded perfunctorily. Yang Xi said again, “He also looks pretty good. If his facial features were a girl… Wow, I won’t chase the class flower in their class, I’ll chase him.”

Yu Han opened the coffee, took a sip, and frowned slightly, Too sweet…

Yang Xi: “Don’t you think so?”

Yu Han then said just as he heard it, “Don’t think so.”

Yang Xi was a little surprised, “He doesn’t look good?”

Yu Han looked at Yang Xi inexplicably, “Are you sure we want to discuss whether a boy looks good here?”

Yang Xi slowly recovered, “Ai, that’s true, I feel gay.”

Yu Han put down his coffee and commented, “He’s good-looking.”

Yang Xi: “……”

Luo Lin Yuan sat across Fang Xiao, looking at the latter, who was still in a daze because of drunkenness. He (FX) raised his chopsticks in place, regained his senses, and pointed at him aggressively, “Confess and I’ll be lenient!”

He raised his chopsticks to grasp away Fang Xiao’s (chopsticks), “Drink your soup, so much nonsense.”

Fang Xiao: “You’re very strange recently ah.”

Luo Lin Yuan raised his eyebrow and said, “Isn’t it just about making friends? Aren’t you asking me to make more friends all day long?”

Fang Xiao covered his chest playfully, “Although that’s what I said, you’ve been really seduced by other little demons! I feel so uncomfortable again!”

Luo Lin Yuan reached for the bowl of soup and made a gesture to pour it out, “Then if you’re uncomfortable, don’t drink the soup either.”

Fang Xiao hurriedly grabbed the soup, “Are you even human? You won’t even give me the soup.”

Luo Lin Yuan didn’t mess with him anymore and picked up his chopsticks to eat. The food in the cafeteria is unpalatable, and he never liked it very much, but it was close and convenient. He felt even dirtier when he was told to eat around the school.

Uncle Wu said that he would deliver lunch regularly. Since the first day when Uncle Wu delivered a dish, an exaggerated five-layer lunch box that filled two tables, Luo Lin Yuan never asked Uncle Wu to deliver it again.

Luo Lin Yuan took a few bites from his plate while thinking, then set it aside and played with his phone.

After Fang Xiao was sure he wouldn’t eat it, he stretched out his chopsticks into his plate to take his meat and said, “You can’t do this ah. You’ll be malnourished and won’t be able to grow muscles.”

Luo Lin Yuan looked at Fang Xiao’s arms which were as thin as his, “You’ve eaten so much meat but I haven’t seen you grow muscles either.”

This comment poked Fang Xiao’s weak spot, he glared, “I’m still developing!”

Luo Lin Yuan sneered. “Yu Han is also still developing but his muscles have already grown, and he doesn’t eat meat as much as you.”

Fang Xiao refused to accept it, “You know it again! What do you know about him!”

Luo Lin Yuan: “I just know!”

Fang Xiao: “How do you know? Have you seen or touched it ah!” As soon as the words fell, Fang Xiao’s mouth closed and his eyes squeezed like cramps.

Unfortunately, the provoked Luo Lin Yuan couldn’t see it at all. He clasped his hands and said, “There is. I don’t need to touch it to know. Yu Han has eight abs, all of which are hard. Fang Xiao, if you want to train like this, it’s still early.”

He remembered the first time he watched Yu Han play basketball, the man lifted his shirt to wipe his sweat. The abdominal muscles were too obvious. Fang Xiao definitely didn’t notice them but he saw them.

Fang Xiao ignored his words and continued to wink.

Without waiting for Luo Lin Yuan to react, a small bottle of Wangzai[3]a brand milk was placed next to Luo Lin Yuan’s arms. Yu Han said, “Gift as thanks.”

Luo Lin Yuan stiffly turned his head, staring at the Wangzai milk, and sunk into silence.

The silence of embarrassment, shame, and despair.

Yang Xi is worthy of being Undiscerning Yang Xi. He laughed heartily with his waist in, and heartlessly said, “A’Yu’s abs are very powerful ah. Last time he did sit-ups, he broke the record.” 

After speaking, he stretched out his hand, wanting to pat Luo Lin Yuan, “Classmate Luo, you can join the basketball team to practice and there will be some (abs) too.”

Before his hand fell on Luo Lin Yuan’s shoulder, he was slightly blocked by Yu Han, who stopped Yang Xi’s hand and didn’t say much, but said in a light voice, “Let’s go ba, it’s time to go back for the lunch break.”
