What are you two doing? - Chapter 3
Cheery here! I got pushed into a pit again hehe… Anyways, Enjoy!
These past few days, Lu Yi had a difficult time, but it wasn’t because of the news that Huo Chen wanted to come out of the closet.
Rather, it was because Huo Chen was treating him more and more nicely. He ate with him in the morning, bought milktea for him in the afternoon, ate every meal together, talked quietly with him during classes, and even in the evening he didn’t jump the wall to go to an internet café but rather, he sent him to the dorms and washed up with him.
Lu Yi at first didn’t mind it, but later felt that it was becoming quite unbearable. After all, Huo Chen liked a guy and that guy couldn’t possibly be him.
The relationship between them was still quite good. As the saying went, to beat is to kiss and to scold is to love. The way for both of them to promote their feelings was to pinch each other.
Huo Chen pinched his face, pinched his hand, pinched his bare arm and even pinched the little point on his chest by mistake. He wasn’t as tall as Huo Chen. He also wasn’t as strong as him So from the start, he couldn’t get back at him.
Once, these gestures can be thought of as just goofing around between brothers. But now, if you carefully thought about it, these gestures carried a trace of ambiguity in it. Could this be like taken advantage of by a gay?
Wave after wave of blush flooded into Lu Yi’s face and soon poured into his body from the head down to the toes. Lu Yi tossed and turned several times on his bed but his body still felt hot.
Finally, he got up and went to bathroom to wash his face with cold water. In the cusp between spring and summer, the weather wasn’t too cold nor too hot. The cold water splashed on to his face and doused the traces of heat.
After washing his face, he sneaked back into bed and realized that he should have had a cold bath instead of just washing his face.
As soon as went under the blanket, his whole body was like a thermometer, with the red mark directly filling the top.
Pubescent people were extremely sensitive.
Can’t sleep! Annoyed, Lu Yi began to think deeply about his sexual orientation. He started to toss and turn on the bed again. Finally, his upper bunkmate couldn’t take it anymore.
“Lu XiaoYi! Are you tumbling in bed?! If you’re rubbing one off, go to the bathroom! I can’t sleep with you tossing and stomping like a horse.”
“Eh— I, I’m sorry. I wasn’t~ I was just hot.” Lu Yi stammered, embarrassed.
The upper bunkmate turned his body over and looked over at him with half of his face peeking out and whispered, “Your spring heart is rippling. Bro, as the saying goes, behind the bamboo, two or three sprays of peach blossom grow, when spring has warmed the stream, the ducks! are first to know.”
He had emphasized the word ‘duck’. And before Lu Yi could realize what the whole saying meant, the upper bunk mate threw out, “Just jerk off more.”
Frick, Damn your peach blossom duck behind the bamboo. Lu Yi kicked and turned for a little while before covering himself with a blanket and had a sleepless night.
T/N: This one is short story so this should be finished soon!
