Song Yi held back his ball of anger. But repressing it didn’t allow him to fall asleep easily. He just didn’t want to pay attention to Gu Xingchuan. Unexpectedly, Gu Xingchuan became unhinged, causing his anger to grow. Wishing to avenge both the past old and new hatred, Song Yi swung his fist.

Gu Xingchuan’s reaction was very fast. But because they were too close, Song Yi’s fist brushed across his cheek, leaving only a stinging pain. Though Song Yi looked thin, he was surprisingly strong.

“Did you consume gunpowder?” Gu Xingchuan didn’t want to receive another punch, so he grabbed Song Yi’s wrist and firmly pressed it to the side of the pillow.

Song Yi’s scalp numbed. This was the position they were in that night where Gu Xingchuan suppressed his wrists and insatiably invaded his body. His lips trembled, barely keeping his voice steady. “Get your hands off of me!”

“Won’t.” Gu Xingchuan leaned over to look at him, almost face-to-face. “En? You’re quite temperamental. Your menses came?”

The warm and humid breath misted over  Song Yi’s cheeks, crawling over like tiny worms, leaving behind a string of numbness. He could clearly see the pores on Gu Xingchuan’s face, and a chill lingered. “It’s you who needs the beating. Scram!”

Gu Xingchuan lowered his eyes and looked at Song Yi’s trembling eyelashes. Those beautiful eyes had an obstinate glare to it. He asked softly, “Are you afraid of me?”

Song Yi adjusted his breathing. “When have I ever been afraid of you?”

Gu Xingchuan’s mouth twitched. His eyes depicted his reckless and evil facial features. “If you’re not afraid of me, then play with me!”

Play you a big bastard! Song Yi almost couldn’t get up in one breath. He gnashed his teeth. “Get out. Don’t have your spring come onto me  in the middle of the night.”

Gu Xingchuan saw that he was furious and immediately felt satisfied. He released his restraining grip. Song Yi quickly withdrew his hand, sat up quickly and moved a safe distance away; he was looked at Gu Xingchuan vigilantly.

Gu Xingchuan innocently blinked a few times. “I only asked you to play games with me. What are you thinking?”

Song Yi took a deep breath and tried to calm down. “If you are sick, get it treated as soon as possible. Don’t prolong the treatment.”

Gu Xingchuan touched his aching cheek, his jaw tightened. “You’re saying this like you’re not sick either. You’re just like an Omega.”

Song Yi’s anger that had just been extinguished just resurfaced. Usually, he was a well-mannered person and had a good temper. But when it came to Gu Xingchuan, he could always find many ways to become angry and lose his mind.

He clenched his fist tightly, and the knuckles rattled because of the excessive force, which was particularly crisp in the silent night.

Gu Xingchuan stared at his fist for a second or two, then smiled playfully, “You want to fight me?”

Comparing himself with Gu Xingchuan’s tall and muscular physique, Song Yi knew that he couldn’t beat the latter, could not taste the sweetness of victory. He might even get beaten up. The gain was not worth the loss.

Song Yi rigidly laid down. He stretched out his hand and pulled the quilt over his body, turning his back to Gu Xingchuan without saying a word.

He couldn’t be angry anymore. He had promised Director Yang to ease the relationship with Gu Xingchuan. He needed to endure this fool for a while longer.

Someday though, Gu Xingchuan must be killed in order to relieve his anger.

Gu Xingchuan stared at the back of his resisting head for a while, and said in a serious tone, “Song Yi, the back of your head is flattened.”

He was telling the truth. For three years in high school, he sat behind Song Yi. What he did the most was to stare at Song Yi’s back. One look and it was for the whole class period. He knew exactly what the back of his head looked like. There was no one who knew it clearer than him.

Song Yi held his breath, ignoring him. He slept very deeply that night, sleeping until dawn. The light from outside filtered through the tent, forming a hazy shadow inside.

The first thing he did when he woke up, was to reach out and gently touch the bottom of his butt. When nothing felt peculiar, he was relieved.

As a new Omega, he couldn’t even understand when he was in estrus.

Gu Xingchuan slept soundly. His lean arm was under his cheeks, his light lashes casting a small shadow under his eyelids. His nose bridge was straight, his lips were thin and pale, and his slightly raised jawline was like a painter’s effort. Carved and chiseled, the whole face contained such condescending extravagance.

Although Gu Xingchuan was an idiot, Song Yi could only be convinced by his appearance. To get high-level endorsements, many people in the circle would attend classes for famous ladies and gentlemen to no avail. All those spokesmen only insisted on Gu Xingchuan for endorsement.

A sparrow with dyed feathers was not a phoenix. This kind of nobleness was innate. It was not piled up by gorgeous clothes or by words or deeds, but a sense of superiority brought from the bones, self-confidence and arrogance. Similar to his background .

Only the kind of people who grew up in a good environment all year round and were  used to seeing the good things in this world could form this kind of charm.

Song Yi gave a middle finger to Gu Xingchuan, feeling a bit more settled in his heart. He was about to take a shower when the phone under the pillow vibrated.

Song Yi took a look and pressed to connect. “Xiao Jie, what’s the matter?”

Song Jie shouted, “Ge.” She hesitated and asked, “Ge, is our home alright?”

“It’s all good. Why are you asking about this?” Song Yi faked a smile.

Song Jie said, “Someone went to my company to find me. Our leader called me and asked me if I borrowed money from outside…”

Song Yi exhaled. “Don’t worry, Xiao Jie. With me here, I will handle this matter.”

“How can he borrow so much money? We can’t afford it at all.” Song Jie panicked. For ordinary people like them, millions of dollars was not enough to earn in a lifetime.

Song Yi patiently said, “Don’t worry, I’m already hastening your divorce lawsuit. As long as we find him and get him to sign, you can leave him forever.”

Song Jie was silent for a few seconds, then asked softly, “I’m afraid that he will ask me for money. He has waited for me at the door of my company several times. If he finds me, he will beat me until I die.”

Song Yi sighed in his heart. The more crucial it was, the steadier he had to be. “After you go home, stay temporarily at my house. I’ll find someone to protect you. Nothing will happen, alright?”

“But I…”

“No buts. You don’t believe me?”

“I believe you…” In this world, Song Jie’s most trusted person was Song Yi.

“Then you can rest assured and have fun. Do what you need to do. Don’t let me find you frowning when you come back.” Song Yi said with a smile.

Song Jie listened to his relaxed smile and she similarly relaxed, softly replying “Thank you Ge.”

“We’re all a family. No thanks needed.”

Song Yi hung up the phone and pinched the bridge of his nose. This was not easy to handle. That bastard couldn’t be found. Even if he was found and willing to sign, Song Jie wouldn’t be able to escape the debt.

Since Song Jie didn’t know yet, so be it. Song Yi didn’t plan to tell her. He could handle such worries himself.

Song Yi let out a long sigh. He swept his hands behind his back to reach for his spectacles beside the pillow when he touched a patch of warm skin, cool lips brushed against his fingertips.

Song Yi felt a chill in his heart. He suddenly pulled back his hand and spun his neck. Who knew when Gu Xingchuan was awake. His half-squinted eyes, his elbows on his cheeks—he was looking straight at Song Yi.

Song Yi was anxious. It was never a glorious thing for a family to borrow high interest loans from loan sharks. The less people knew about it, the better. He wondered how much Gu Xingchuan had listened to.

“Song Yi, you really look like an old nanny.” Gu Xingchuan yawned, then laughed.”She is your sister, not your unmarried maiden. Can’t she handle this by herself?”

Song Yi remembered what happened last night, and glared back, “It has nothing to do with you, alright?”

Sure enough, Gu Xingchuan heard everything. Song Yi felt uncomfortable, but there was nothing he could do. Fortunately, Gu Xingchuan was not one to gossip and would not tell others.

Gu Xingchuan snorted and glanced at Song Yi. “Why does it have nothing to do with me? My friend is used as an ATM for others. Shouldn’t I care?”

Song Yi thought, Who the hell is this rascal’s good friend?

Gu Xingchuan sat up, excited. “Song Yi, have you thought of any other way to deal with this matter?”

“What else can be done?” Song Yi didn’t think Gu Xingchuan could come up with any good ideas. This matter was like a mess. Other than using money to fill the hole, there was no other solution at all.

Gu Xingchuan gave a tiny grin and lightly offered, “I’ll give you an idea.”


“He owes money to loan sharks, and now he must be thinking about how to run away. I know a friend who has connections and can contact someone who smuggles. You can lure him to get smuggled.” Gu Xingchuan paused, watching Song Yi concentrate on his words.

He pondered for a while, then serenely continued, “The living environment on a smuggling boat is bad. If he is unlucky, he will die on the boat. If he is lucky, he will survive. He has no household registration abroad and can only work underground. People like this can’t bear hardships. No status, no status. How miserable it is.”

Song Yi stared at Gu Xingchuan. Gu Xingchuan looked serious, not like he was joking at all. He wavered but was immediately restrained by reason. He quietly asked, “Don’t you know this is against the law?”

Gu Xingchuan glanced at him. His gaze was obscure and he sneered. “I was joking with you.”

Song Yi’s frightened heart felt better. “You really have a problem in the morning. Stop talking nonsense.”

Gu Xingchuan raised his chin and casually questioned, “If you can’t find him, then what are you going to do?”

“He doesn’t have any friends, I’ll be able to find him soon.” Song Yi quickly got dressed.

Gu Xingchuan gave him a meaningful glance, opened the tent, and walked out.

  1. Here is my wild speculation about all of this up to this point: GXC has not only been in love with SY since school days, he has most likely manipulated everything to get close to him….including creating that mysterious ‘long legs’ character…and has probably either already taken care of the brother in law problem or will shortly, as well, “disappearing” him abroad…I’m even betting that GXC has even managed to send the object of their “love rivalry” away for these years? SY is an unreliable point of view, he is totally dense about romance which CS his friend has intuited…this is the funniest story I’ve read in a long time, the author’s deadpan delivery, describing the juvenile behavior of two supposed grown ups…who are just soooo stuck in high school bickering mentality haha. I can’t wait for the farce to be revealed and that love dumb SY to figure it out. Thanks to the TL who skillfully manages to convey this funny story! ???
