What Are You Two Doing? - Chapter 12
Lu Yi admitted that he didn’t mean to run towards the shadowed grove. That grove was a shortcut leading to their dormitory building. He just wanted to hurry back to his bed, wrap himself with a blanket to cover his head and never see Huo Chen again.
His plan only half-succeeded and after a short run through the grove, he was stopped by Huo Chen pulling on his clothes.
“What are you doing?! What are you doing?!” Lu Yi’s face was red. He tugged on his clothes to rip it off Huo Chen’s hold, “Let go! Let go!”
Lu Yi’s chicken like strength was no match for Huo Chen’s brute force and he was knocked back a few times until he hit the back of a hidden tree.
Lu Yi was stupefied. What was he going to do?!
They stared silently at each other, blinking furiously at the other across the darkness.
Finally, Huo Chen started to talk, “I’m sorry, at what happened inside earlier. I couldn’t hold back.”
“W-what?!” When Huo Chen leaned over to speak, his hot breath as he spoke puffed on Lu Yi’s forehead, frying Lu Yi’s brain.
“I kissed you just now ah.” Huo Chen was straightforward.
“It- it doesn’t matter. Weren’t you dreaming of a girl, opened your eyes and mistook her for someone else?” Lu Yi bowed his head and didn’t look at Huo Chen. Despite being separated by the dark night, he still felt ashamed at those pair of eyes gazing at him.
“No,” Huo Chen denied, “I was dreaming of you.”
“Ah?! What?! Ah?!”
“Why would you dream of me?!”
“I miss you every day. I want to kiss you everyday. I want to hold you everyday…”
“Stop!” Lu Yi’s face was burning as he stopped Huo Chen from saying more and more obscene words. “What do you mean by that ah?”
“What else can I mean? I like you!”
Thump! Thump! Lu Yi’s heart suddenly skipped a beat. He couldn’t seem to digest this fact for a while. Lu Yi didn’t like women and he also wasn’t a woman, “You…Me…You…Don’t you like women?!”
“That other day…That other day I heard you! You said you liked women!” Lu Yi was very angry. He obviously liked women yet he still kept fucking saying he liked him.
“Naturally, I was just playing hard to get like what the book said. Didn’t you say this would work on men too?” Huo Chen leaned close to his ear, “Xiao Lu Yi, do you think it worked ah?”
“Fuck your playing hard to get! Laozi has been upset for several days because of what you said. I don’t believe it!” The moment Lu Yi finished speaking, he immediately regretted it as if his words that could be used against him, had fallen on Huo Chen’s hands.
“You were really upset?!” Huo Chen suddenly tightened his hands caging both sides of Lu Yi and held the person under him tightly.
“You’re fucking upset!” Lu Yi wanted to die from the shame. He persistently struggled in Huo Chen’s arms.
“I’m fucking upset damnit! I’ve liked you for the most part of this semester. You didn’t even realize it, you numbskull! I felt so upset! When you would occasionally tell me about receiving a love letter from a girl, I was very upset! A few days ago, when I made up with you and you were so angry that you rejected me, I was also upset! You even dated someone without saying a word to me. I was so upset I could die!”
Who was fucking dating and not saying a word? Lu Yi refuted, “When was I dating?!”
“This morning, if I didn’t know you had a breakup, I would have never known you had been dating someone. Although when I found out you broke up, I was quite happy. But when I recall that you have an ex-girlfriend, I was unhappy. So today I planned to take the initiative and make a move to save you from being seduced by some girl again!”
Lu Yi stared at this big vinegar king that was pouring out his vinegar on him with all his might. His heart suddenly bubbled up a little sweetness which grew more in the passing time. He couldn’t help but raise the corners of his lips in the dark and punched Huo Chen in the back, “I was heartbroken, all thanks to you and that bullshit playing hard to get scheme of yours. The plan was successful! Congratulations.”
“What are you saying?!” Huo Chen’s voice was filled with joy and pleasant surprise.
“I‘m saying, I like you, Huo Chen.”
“Say it again.”
“I like you.”
“Say it again.”
“Say it again.”
“Fuck it! I’m done!”
“Say it again~” Huo Chen’s voice was brimming with anticipation like he wouldn’t dare believe the facts currently right in front of him.
Lu Yi’s lips hooked up and he raised his head. He looked up to the eyes that he couldn’t quite see but were rippling in the dark, “Huo Chen, I like you.”
“The book said it should be a heated kiss when you least expect it. Back then, it wasn’t heated enough.”
“Ah?!” Before Lu Yi could react, his chin was raised and his lips were sealed with a kiss. This time, the kiss wasn’t just a motionless peck rather it directly engulfed his lips, repeatedly teasing and playing with it.
The thoughts in Lu Yi’s heart surged: Why is his fiery kissing technique so good? Did he practice it on someone else? Who was it?! Fuck you!
Without his notice, a pair of hands lifted the white shirt under his uniform and accurately pinched his little points. A burst of electric shock flooded his brain.
Lu Yi’s consciousness was weak. He softly collapsed all of a sudden into Huo Chen’s chest with one hand holding him. A soft tongue penetrated his lips and provoked his own tongue into a battle of dominance.
Lu Yi had never been this strongly stimulated before. He was blushing as he cried out high-pitched noises.
The hand that pinched his little points traveled downwards, crossing through his tight flat stomach and lingered on the elastic fringes of his uniform trousers before finally probing down.
With his mind melting into a pot of hot soup, Lu Yi felt something. He tugged at the hand sliding into his underwear and cried, “Huo Chen, don’t, don’t…”
The hand stopped. It stimulated Lu Yi and slipped out again.
“En~~~” Lu Yi couldn’t tell whether he was displeased or comfortable. He only felt numb from head to toe, relinquishing his strength in order to lean against Huo Chen.
In this passionate moment, a harsh line of bright light shone over them.
The head teacher’s angry voice roared out, “You two! What are you doing?!?!?!”
That certain place which just got hard on Lu Yi immediately softened. Huo Chen held his hand, “Run!”
The gently breeze in the grove blew against their cold damp hair as the two madly dashed to get rid of the fat crooked head teacher.
The lights in the dormitory had just been turned off when they ran to the doors in one breath. They gasped and panted heavily. Their eyes were wide, and their faces flushed. That was really thrilling.
A cool breeze came from the stairway and the two laughed out loud seeing the other’s face.
Lu Yi: What did the chemistry teacher say to you? You’re not going to climb over the wall to play games anymore?
Huo Chen: The teacher said that a genius who doesn’t work hard, won’t get a good wife in the future.
Lu Yi: You mean you’re a genius, right.
Huo Chen: No. I meant you are very good. I want to marry you in the future.
