Hey, Don't Be Unruly! - 26
Chapter 26 – Heart to heart talk
Blood rose little by little to Gao Yu Lan’s face then went up to her brain. Her face became red and her head became dizzy.
Just now, did she kiss that nasty annoying Yin Ze? Really?
What happened? How can she be so careless?
Gao Yu Lan suddenly remembered that when she had that spring dream……that…..she was also careless and it was not intentional!
Her face had become so red it seems blood was about to drip and she stammered. “I…I….” For a long time and finally blurted out a sentence. “You were mistaken.”
“I had an illusion.”
Gao Yu Lan nodded hard. “You can also say it’s an illusion.”
Yin Ze covered his heart. “Aren’t you admitting to it?”
“You said it yourself that it was an illusion, so what is there to admit?” Gao Yu Lan raised her chest, lifted her head, and tried to stay calm. She patted Yin Ze’s shoulder. “Young man, be calm.”
Yin Ze stared at her which made her face grow hotter but she could not cover her face nor show her weakness. Nothing happened……nothing happened……..she brainwashed herself and looked back at him.
Yin Ze clutched his heart and said. “Oh, my heart hurts, I’m getting out to calm myself.”
He finished and opened the car door to get down.
Gao Yu Lan looked at his back and sighed with relief. She leaned back on the seat and was secretly thankful to Yin Ze in her heart. When she felt sad, he had tried to clown around to make her happy. When she was embarrassed and shy, he had moved away to let her calm down.
Actually, he is a very, very good man.
Once again, Gao Yu Lan thought about the spring dream and the kiss just now.
This time there is no one else in the car, so she can cover her face and shout in her heart – – She didn’t do it intentionally, she really didn’t do it intentionally!
After hiding in her shell for a long time, suddenly someone knocked on her window and she jumped with fright. She put down her hands and looked up to find Yin Ze standing outside smiling at her. He opened the door and pulled her out of the car. “Have you suffocated yourself to death yet? If not, come out and look at the stars.”
It was cool outside the car and the smell of grass mixed with the fragrance of flowers was very refreshing. She took a deep breath and felt a lot more relaxed.
“Where are the stars?” She looked up into the sky and could only see the moon but no stars.
“Look over here.” Yin Ze pulled her to the edge of a fence. This is actually a hilltop for viewing the city’s scenery. Looking down, she could see A-city’s night panoramic view. Below the hill, the city lights were twinkling like stars under the night sky.
“The more beautiful it is, the farther I feel it is away from me.” She looked at this beautiful night scene without feeling any happiness in her. Is this city really suitable for her?
“Why did you come to A-city in the first place?”
Gao Yu Lan twitched her mouth and Yin Ze laughed. “Come, today I will keep you company and you can treat me as a trash bin for your emotions.” From the boot of his car, he took out two cans of beer and a bottle of mineral water. Then he sat down on a large rock by the side of the hilltop, passed the bottle of mineral water to Gao Yu Lan, and opened a can of beer for himself.
She sat down beside him, looked at the bottle of water in her hands, and then looked at the can of beer in his hands. “I also want to drink beer.” When the mood is not good, drinking a little alcohol seemed not bad.
“No, your ability to hold your drink is very poor. After getting drunk, you like to hit people and in case you kick me down the hill and feel distressed for me, then how?”
“You will not kick me down the hill or you will not feel distressed for me?” Yin Ze blinked like a ruffian.
“Neither.” She glared back at him.
Yin Ze laughed and tilted his head back to drink a mouthful of beer from the can. Gao Yu Lan sighed and also drank a mouthful of water. She looked at the twinkling lights below the hill in a daze and after a while, she asked. “Yin Ze, have you ever been in love?”
“Why…..want to know more about me? I’m already 30 years old, of course, I had but now I’m single, clean and without any entanglements. Just waiting for you to come to me.”
She acted as if she did not hear his last sentence and asked. “Then how was your first love like?’
Yin Ze looked at her and said. “You’ve to promise me that after learning of my love history, you won’t abandon me, then I’ll tell you.”
“Don’t talk nonsense.” She patted him.
“Okay, I’ll tell you.” Yin Ze took another mouthful of his beer. “It was during high school.”
“High school, which year?”
Yin Ze seriously thought for a while and said. “Sophomore year.”
“It happened when I was a Freshman, a year earlier than you.” Gao Yu Lan looked at the lights and thought of her past.
“Oh, Moon….ah.” Yin Ze stretched his arms and yelled into the sky. “This woman is deliberately making me angry. Jealously is burning in my heart, I can’t stay any longer, take me away!”
“Don’t make trouble.” Gao Yu Lan smiled and swatted his arm. “You are hateful.”
“Oh…..” Yin Ze covered his face. “She also said I’m hateful.”
“Hey……” Gao Yu Lan again swatted him. It was not easy for her to put aside her sadness and he had to undermine the atmosphere.
Yin Ze laughed and said. “Okay, okay, you can continue.”
“What do you mean I continue? It is you who should continue. After that, what happened? Why did you break up?”
“When I was a Freshman, my parents passed away. On my father’s side, the legacy problems were in a mess. Although he divorced my mother, he was responsible for our education fees and living expenses. When he passed away, suddenly we were unable to get any money. I had to pay for my mother’s funeral expenses and our savings were used up immediately. So I stopped schooling and went to work. As you know, I couldn’t get a good job in the beginning and my future was in a mess. It was impossible to go back to school and I was without an education. At that time, my girlfriend could not accept the changes on my side and as I was very busy and troubled, I couldn’t take care of her feelings, so we broke up.”
Gao Yu Lan looked at him and her eye rims felt hot. “Yin Ze, you are very strong.”
Yin Ze grinned. “You praised me….oh, I’m so moved. Moon, ah……there is no need to take me away, it’s good here.”
Gao Yu Lan was amused by him. She felt he was funny and at the same time she felt angry with him. “Hey, I am serious, don’t make trouble.”
“Okay, serious.” Yin Ze shook the beer can. “Actually, that time I had really lost hope and if it was not for my sister perhaps I won’t be what I am today.”
“What did Sister Yin Ning do?”
“She doesn’t need to do anything. Her presence tells me that I still have a family to take care of. My elder sister, this kind of little woman, is a foolish woman who needs someone to rely on. If I didn’t work hard, she would suffer. If I wandered on the streets it was alright for me but my sister is a girl and she was a Junior with one more year before graduation. I couldn’t let her be like me and be left with nothing. Well, as a man when he is needed, he will always become strong.”
“But when I needed him, he didn’t let me rely on him.” She whispered, revealing sadness in her voice. She looked at Yin Ze’s hand holding the beer and said. “I want to drink.”
This time Yin Ze did not refuse. He stretched out his hand with the beer and Gao Yu Lan took several gulps of the beer from the can he was holding. She wiped her mouth and said. “My boyfriend and I fell in love when we were in the First Year. At first, we kept it a secret from our families until the Third Year when we were discovered by the school. My parents were informed and at that time, it was nearing the time for the entrance examination and the goal of the school and parents was to let us test into a good university. Once they heard we were in love, of course, everyone opposed strongly. His family, my family, and the school forced us to break up. During that time, we were in despair and we struggled a lot, determined not to break up. Later, my parents really couldn’t do anything and I promised that I would get good results to go to a good school and I won’t let them down. Finally, my parents agreed.”
While she said this at the same time she reached out her hand for the beer. This time she simply grabbed the drink from Yin Ze’s hand and gulped down several mouthfuls.
“I worked very hard and finally I was admitted to the university in B-city which was my parents’ first choice for me. However, my boyfriend was only admitted to the local school in C-city. His parents blamed me for dragging down his grades but he said it was alright. But we had to separate and we had a long-distance relationship. He was not at ease and requested me to go back once I graduated and I promised.”
Gao Yu Lan took another mouthful from the can and finished up the beer until the can was empty. She reached out to take another can, opened it, and drank.
“I worked hard in university, made a lot of friends but I always missed him. I would call him every two or three days and as long as there was time, every night we would chat online. We carried on that way until I was in Senior Year. That year, I was supposed to return to C-city to look for a job and a male classmate also wanted to go to C-city to look for a job, so we went back together. We were classmates for four years, our friendship was good and since he came from afar, so I took care of him. I helped him to look for a hotel, took him around to meet my friends including my boyfriend. That time, there were rumors but I didn’t know as I was feeling very happy. I was only thinking that I would be back soon and immediately would be able to live together with my boyfriend. We had agreed that after graduation, we would get married once we have jobs.”
As she spoke, tears started to stream down her face. “But one day, that male university classmate invited me and my friends to sing karaoke. He said that his job was about to materialize and wanted to celebrate with friends. I went and everyone was singing happily. I went to the toilet and when I came back I saw him standing in front of the door of the reserved room. I went over and asked him what happened. Suddenly, he hugged me and kissed me. While I still wondering what was happening, I heard my boyfriend’s shout and he came over to pull us apart. Before I could even speak, a slap landed on my face.”
Her tears continued to flow and tonight it seems she was particularly vulnerable. Yin Ze put his arms around her, pulled her into his embrace, and this time she cried aloud. “Then all my friends came out to see. My boyfriend was scolding loudly and said that he already felt something was not right with us earlier on. He also said that I was cheap and had my foot on two boats*.
(To have a foot on two boats means to be in two love affairs simultaneously.)
Then my male classmate told my boyfriend that he came back this time was just to tell my boyfriend clearly that he also likes me but never found a chance to say so. He hoped that my boyfriend would let go. I was stupefied. I could not believe what I heard and wanted to justify myself. In the end, a good friend of mine, you can say she was a bosom friend, suddenly said that she had advised me not to have feelings for another. She also said that I told her I love another and said that I didn’t heed her advice. Each and everyone’s play-acting was excellent and all the things they said actually did not happen. I didn’t know what to do, I was very stupid and I could only say to my boyfriend that I hope he believes in me. I was not like what they said.”
“But he didn’t believe you, is that right?” Yin Ze felt his heart ached and helped to wipe her tears.
“He didn’t believe me and scolded me.” Gao Yu Lan was extremely sad and cried loudly. “After that, all my friends alienated me and I had no way of explaining. C-city is a small place. Since my boyfriend and I were classmates, his friends were my friends and everyone thought it was my fault, so they sided him. He said he had invested so much in this relationship and in the end, I went to a good school and got hooked up with other boys.”
“And your male university classmate, because he likes you, he took the opportunity to make both of you break up so that he could fill in your boyfriend’s position, is that it?”
“He told me that he didn’t expect things would turn out this way.” Gao Yu Lan rubbed her eyes and shook her head. “But I don’t like him and only treated him as a friend.”
“Then what happened to your liar bosom girlfriend?”
“Later, she married my boyfriend.” Gao Yu Lan sniffled. After pouring out all the misery in her heart, she felt much more comfortable.
Yin Ze took out a tissue for her to wipe the tears on her face. “That is a slut….. You’re really stupid to cry for a slut.”
“I’ve not cried over this matter for the past few years but today when this disgusting thing happened, I felt sad and so I cried.” She looked at Yin Ze with her eyes full of tears and her nose had turned red. Yin Ze reached out to sweep back the hair that was sticking to her wet cheeks and said. “You look so ugly when you cry.”
“You are also not handsome!” She said with vigor after her misery had been poured out.
“You have damaged your eyes with so much crying.” Yin Ze said with a horrified expression. “It is obvious that I’m very handsome, so much so that the gods and humans are angry and the moon is even reluctant to look away. Look……the moonlight has never left me. Even like this, you still can’t see I am handsome?”
Gao Yu Lan laughed while Yin Ze cupped his face with both his hands in front of her and said. “Look, look carefully…….take a serious look, I am very handsome, ain’t I?”
Gao Yu Lan burst out into loud laughter and stretched out her hand to push his face away. Yin Ze was also laughing. His eyes shone brightly, the corners of his mouth curved and his face was very close to her. The moonlight sprinkled on him, surrounded by green grass, green plants, and wildflowers and the ambiance was incredibly good.
His face was very near to hers and his breath seemed to be spraying on her face. She breathed in his refreshing scent and once again remembered the dream…..he had pressed her against the wall, lowered his head, and kissed her on her lips…….
This is terrible! Her heart is beating very fast. Why is his face is becoming more pleasing to the eye? Why does she always think of the chaotic dream? Why is it that the more she looked at him, the more handsome he looks, the more she looked at him, the more she likes him? What should she do? What should she do?
Gao Yu Lan made a quick decision. She must destroy, destroy! She is determined to destroy! She used her two hands to grab Yin Ze’s face, one on each side and pulled hard.
Instantly, the handsome face changed into a flat biscuit!
Huh, so ugly! She feels more comfortable like this!
