After Jiang Li said “Grandpa”, Jiang Nuomi called out to Chi Fang twice as if responding to him.
Chi Fang: “…”
Seeing Chi Fang’s face darkening quickly, the familiar reaction made Jiang Li purse his lips and smile, and he hurriedly said, “I’m joking, don’t mind, alright.”
After speaking, he took out Chi Fang’s lighter from his pocket and gave it to him. “By the way, I forgot to return this to you.”
Thanks to Feng Yu, Chi Fang now thought of the sentence “Wanna date?” as soon as he saw the lighter, and his thoughts couldn’t help but wander. He forgot to be angry and was hesitating between dating or not and forgot to receive the lighter at that moment.
Jiang Li saw that he was suddenly in a daze, so he shook the lighter in front of him. “Your lighter.”
The word lighter was like a switch which made Chi Fang quiver and he blurted out, “Not dating!”
“What?” Jiang Li looked at him inexplicably, “What about not dating?”
Chi Fang met his confused eyes, coughed unnaturally, and took over the lighter in his hand rudely. “Not dating anything!”
Jiang Li carefully observed his expression, suddenly stood up, and reached out to touch Chi Fang’s earlobe.
The sudden touch made Chi Fang almost jump up. He covered his earlobe and stared at him. “What are you doing?”
The inexperienced and nervous reaction made Jiang Li laugh in his heart, but his face was calm. He deliberately got close to Chi Fang’s face and asked knowingly, “Why are your ears so red?”
The earlobe touched by Jiang Li was still hot, Chi Fang rubbed it with his hand and said as if trying to cover up something, “It’s hot, don’t get so close.”
“Oh.” Jiang Li stretched his voice and didn’t ask further questions. He then changed the topic, “Today Feng Yu said that this lighter was a birthday present from the old man. Is your birthday on May 21st?”
“En.” Chi Fang put the lighter back in his pocket and asked casually, “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing, I’m just thinking about what present to give you next year.” Jiang Li said and put Jiang Nuomi in his arms, “I’m going to cook, play with Son for a while. Call the old man later and ask him to come back for dinner.”
After he finished speaking, he went into the kitchen.
Chi Fang was carrying Jiang Nuomi and his mind was filled with the sentence Jiang Li said “You play with Son for a while”, which was too ambiguous. Was Jiang Li talking about my son or his son? Or our son…
“Bah bah bah!”
Realizing what he was thinking, Chi Fang quickly stopped and looked up at Jiang Li in the kitchen.
Jiang Li was taking the vegetables out of the bag and putting them in the basin with water. After the summer vacation, he grew two centimeters and was now 1.75 meters tall. Although his figure was still a little thin, he looked a lot more slender.
Chi Fang just stood looking at him for a while, and when he looked down, he found Jiang Nuomi staring at him.
One person and one cat stared at each other for a while. Chi Fang placed it directly on the sofa, said “play by yourself”, and went into the kitchen.
Jiang Nuomi: “…”
Although Chi Fang didn’t know how to cook, he could still help with washing the vegetables. The two of them worked together and dinner was soon cooked.
After eating, the old man went downstairs to find the neighbors to play chess again, and Jiang Li gave Chi Fang make-up lessons as usual.
After a summer vacation of studying intensively, Chi Fang passed the English test. In addition to English, Jiang Li also helped him make up for Physics and Mathematics.
“You’ve counted this question wrongly.” Jiang Li pointed at Chi Fang’s paper. “This part.”
Chi Fang’s gaze followed his index finger which was moving and the fair fingertips made him unconsciously remember the touch the last time he held it, and he couldn’t help but get distracted.
Jiang Li had long been accustomed to his distraction during make-up lessons. If it was during normal days, he would either pat him on the shoulder to remind him or wait for him to recover. However, now he knew that he was Jiang Zhan, it was just that the shell had changed, just like himself, he then wasn’t polite to him anymore. He picked up the booklet on the side and rolled it up and hit him directly on the head.
Jiang Li’s knock was not light, Chi Fang made a “hiss” and looked up at him. “What are you doing?”
“What am I doing?” Jiang Li propped up his hands on the table and looked down at him from across. “What were you thinking in your mind earlier, did you hear what I just said?”
What was I thinking in my mind…
Thinking about your hand ah.
Chi Fang didn’t say these words and felt so fucking embarrassed. He clearly asked Jiang Li not to fall in love with him two days ago, but today he seemed to have been bewitched, the other party’s shadow filled his mind.
In the time following this, Chi Fang was distracted frequently and Jiang Li learned from System that his favorability had risen to 48% and was stuck in a position above friends and not lovers.
Knowing that the teenage boy was about to experience adolescent love, his thoughts must be chaotic, so Jiang Li didn’t embarrass him and said that the make-up lesson would end early.
As soon as Chi Fang, whose mind was wandering, heard that it was over, he looked down at the watch on his hand. It was only 8.30 in the evening. “Don’t we have another half an hour to go? Why is it over?”
“Let alone half an hour, you won’t learn anything even if we continue for another half of the day.” Jiang Li said while organizing the exercise book on the table. When he said this, he suddenly stopped to look at Chi Fang and asked abruptly, “Are you… in love?”
Chi Fang didn’t expect him to suddenly ask such a question. He was stunned at first, and then retorted instantly, “How is it possible?”
“Then is it that you have someone you like? You were absent-minded all night.” Jiang Li looked at him strangely and then patted Chi Fang’s arm like a good brother, “If you have then say it, I’ll help you.”
Chi Fang: “…” Help me your ass, you only have studies in your heart.
Seeing that he didn’t speak, Jiang Li asked hesitantly, “Is it… Nan Yin?”
“How is that possible?!” Chi Fang said, “Don’t listen to Feng Yu’s big mouth blabbering nonsense, I have nothing to do with her.”
“That’s good then.” Jiang Li breathed a sigh of relief and smiled at him, his eyes filled with unconcealed joy.
Chi Fang felt a little dizzy when he laughed. “You seem very happy about the fact that I don’t like Nan Yin.”
“Of course.” Jiang Li nodded without hesitation, “I’m happier if you don’t have someone you like.”
“Why?” Chi Fang asked, his heart beating a little faster.
Jiang Li said as a matter of course, “In this way, you can only have studies in your heart like me.”
Chi Fang: “…” Damn you!
After making Chi Fang choke back and forth twice, Jiang Li’s mood was very good, and he considered that he had avenged himself for the fact that he didn’t know Chi Fang was Jiang Zhan all these days.
Thinking of the time while he was upset, Chi Fang was fine. He didn’t remember anything, living a happy and unrestrained life. Jiang Li couldn’t help but want to punish him pettily.
Since you asked me not to fall in love with you, let’s wait and see who’s going to cry and beg me to date in the end.
Thinking of this, Jiang Li slightly raised the corner of his lips and smiled. He then said to Chi Fang, “I have class tomorrow, so I’ll go back first.”
After he finished speaking, he picked up his school bag and walked out of the room.
Chi Fang followed him, sent him out the door, and returned to the room. He turned on the computer and sat down.
Chi Fang typed the word in Baidu search, and results full of information and pictures about “homosexuality” appeared in the search bar.
Chi Fang knew about the existence of homosexuality, but he had never learned about it. He clicked on a few sites of information to read, and his brows were furrowed.
After reading for a while, he turned off the search bar, picked up his phone, and sent a message to Feng Yu through WeChat.
– Chi Fang: Take a picture and show me the novel that your sister is reading.
Feng Yu had a younger sister who was in junior high school. According to Feng Yu, his sister was a super “fujoshi” and had a lot of indescribable love stories about two men. All the knowledge he knew in this aspect was all taught by his sister.
In the past, when Feng Yu complained about his sister, his words always went in one ear and out the other for Chi Fang. He really didn’t expect that he would need help from the other party one day.
Not long after the message was sent, Feng Yu replied.
– Crazy Yuyu: Damn it, Chi ge have you been hacked?!
– The other party is inviting you to a video call.
Chi Fang chose “reject” and sent him another message.
– Chi Fang: Hacked your ass, hurry up!
– Crazy Yuyu: This tone is indeed correct, but Chi ge, what book do you want? My sister has a lot of books.
– Chi Fang: … Those kinds of books.
– Crazy Yuyu: ? ? ?
– Crazy Yuyu: What the hell! ! Really? Chi ge, are you so trendy?!
– The other party is inviting you to a video call.
Chi Fang rejected the call again.
– Chi Fang: Stop talking nonsense, hurry up.
– Crazy Yuyu: Okay then, wait for a while.
About two minutes later, Feng Yu sent a photo over and Chi Fang clicked it openly. After seeing the content above, the corners of his eyes twitched.
The photo showed a row of novels standing on a bookshelf, the titles of which were “Runaway Bride: Black-Bellied Prince Don’t Be Too Arrogant! “, “Marrying Sweetheart: The Second Young Master’s Wife”, “Bride With Ten Billion In Wealth: The Ex-Husband is Coming!”, “The Emperor’s Pampered Wife” and so on…
Chi Fang: “…”
Chi Fang felt that his teeth were sore when he saw these names and was about to send a message to Feng Yu when he saw that he had withdrawn it and sent several photos.
– Crazy Yuyu: Chi ge, I told you that these are my sister’s treasures, and I guarantee that you’ll benefit a lot!
– Crazy Yuyu: By the way, I am playing a game, are you joining?!
– Chi Fang: No, keep today’s matter a secret, or else I will beat you to death.
– Crazy Yuyu: I know, I know, then I’m leaving!
– Chi Fang: En.
Chi Fang clicked on the other photos and saw the two letters “BL” on the cover of the comic book in one of them.
BL was the abbreviation of Boys’ Love, which was love between boys.
This was what Chi Fang saw when he was searching just now. In short, it was homosexuality.
Chi Fang noted down the name of one of the comics and then went to Baidu to search for it. Unfortunately, Chi Fang tongxue chose an R18 comic and the two men entangling with each other on the title page almost made his eyes pop out.
The clear and uncoded smut comics opened the door to a new world for Chi Fang. That night, Chi Fang, who had received new knowledge, was naturally indescribable in his dreams.
When he saw clearly who the person in his dream was, he woke up with fright, and the discomfort between his legs made him despondent.
Having wet dreams during adolescence was a normal thing, but it was obviously abnormal to dream of someone who was a boy like himself.
Chi Fang got up and took a shower, washed away the stickiness and dryness on his body, changed into clean underwear, and fell on the bed weakly. His eyes stared at the ceiling fixedly. As soon as he closed his eyes, his mind was full of Jiang Li’s shadow.
Chi Fang pressed the center of his eyebrows irritably, reached out, took the phone from the side, opened WeChat, and blacklisted Feng Yu.
