Fu Yuanzhou suddenly woke up from his dream.

He opened his eyes, and the dim light came into view, because of the water vapor in his eyes, his vision was blurred. He moved slightly and felt his back being held by a hand, and there was a steady stream of body temperature, which made him feel very warm.

The faint red wine-flavored pheromone allowed him to identify who was hugging him. When the mist in his eyes faded, Xie Lin’s handsome face came into view.

He was still very flustered by the dream and instantly felt relieved. As long as Xie Lin was there, he would not be afraid.

It was already the same time as his previous life, and nothing had happened yet. This time, he would never be bewitched by that man, let alone follow him and let those things happen again.

He would definitely change himself.

Feeling that he was awake, Xie Lin also opened his originally closed eyes, Fu Yuanzhou was a little embarrassed, as he had thought that he had fallen asleep, and he didn’t want to disturb his sleep, so he whispered: “Did I wake you up? Are you asleep?”

Xie Lin shook his head: “I didn’t sleep.”

Fu Yuanzhou looked at the time, it was three in the morning, he was stunned for a moment, and then he remembered that he had begged Xie Lin to not leave before he fell asleep, and Xie Lin really didn’t leave and stayed with him until late at night.

It must be because he pressed Xie Lin, that Xie Lin had not fallen asleep… Fu Yuanzhou got up and saw that Xie Lin’s movements were not smooth, it seemed that the right shoulder with which he was cradling him had gone numb, so he took the initiative to lean over and press Xie Lin’s shoulder: “I’m sorry…”

Xie Lin stretched out his other hand and wiped off the water marks on his eyes: “Are you still sad?”

“It’s alright.” Fu Yuanzhou was even more embarrassed, “Thank you for staying with me. It’s so late, and you haven’t brought your keys, right? Why don’t you just sleep at my house, and I’ll find you a guest room and pajamas.”

“No.” Xie Lin got up from the bed, “Xiaofei gave me the key, I’ll go back to sleep.”

“Okay, then you can go back, I’ll take you down.” Fu Yuanzhou got up and wanted to take Xie Lin downstairs.

Xie Lin shook his head: “Go to sleep.” After speaking, he paused, “If you are in trouble, tell me, and I will solve it for you.”

“…” Fu Yuanzhou opened his mouth and said nothing, but nodded with a smile, ” Good.”

Xie Lin suddenly said, “It’s the early morning.”

“Yes, so?”

“It’s early morning.” Xie Lin suddenly took Fu Yuanzhou’s waist and gently placed a kiss on his forehead, “You promised me a good morning kiss.”

“You…” Considering that it was the early morning, Fu Yuanzhou didn’t call out, he just tapped Xie Lin on the shoulder and said in a low voice, “What kind of ‘good morning’ is this?” And didn’t you agree to cancel it before, why was it coming out again?

Xie Lin was kind and fluent as he said: “Good night.”

Fu Yuanzhou: “…”

But Xie Lin had been with him for so long, he couldn’t say anything else, so he rolled his eyes and walked into the room. After returning home, he was in good spirits and had no sleepiness. He took the phone and started frantically flipping through the chat records between him and the man.

He met the man on Instagram when he was a freshman in high school. At that time, he saw the landscape photo taken by the man and thought it was very nice, so he left a message for the man, and the man replied to him, that time they just had a simple chat, but the two of them felt that they were very close to each other, so they soon became very familiar with each other, and there was a feeling of wanting to see each other.

At that time, Fu Yuanzhou had never felt that there was anyone who fit him so well. Their preferences were almost exactly the same, and their thinking was always synchronized. As long as he chatted with that man, he would never feel bored.

He really liked chatting with this netizen. If the other party was a woman, he might have fallen in love with him long ago. He even felt that confidantes or bosom friends were not enough to describe their relationship. They had a soul resonance.

He was chatting on his mobile phone every day, wishing to be awake 24 hours a day, and often when he woke up suddenly when sleeping, the first thing he did was to open Instagram to see if the man had replied to him.

It was because of this that they had too many chat records, and they used more than one software. Until morning, Fu Yuanzhou had been scrolling through the chat records, his eyes were red, his fingers were sore, but he still kept scrolling, however, he was still only about a third of the way through.

But he breathed a sigh of relief, because he was basically certain that he did not send a frontal photo to the man in his first year of high school, at most a back photo, and they did not tell each other their real names. They also had a tacit understanding in this regard and wanted to keep some mystery.

It wasn’t until the second half of the second semester of high school that he went abroad to find the man to play with him, and they got to know each other’s looks and real names. But now, apart from his name and face, all other daily information about Fu Yuanzhou had been exposed, including his city and school, so that man could find him here.

He knew that the man must be surprised that he was suddenly blocked. Obviously, they were talking happily two hours ago. If it was him, he would definitely be very unwilling.

Fu Yuanzhou thought that the man might find him through some means, but he didn’t expect him to come over in person and even go to his school. It turned out that at this time, his obsession with him was already so deep?

Fu Yuanzhou held the phone, his eyes were extremely complicated, he was silent for a while, and finally called out the man’s real name.

“Shen Xigou…”

He would never let him find himself.

He stretched out on the bed and went to the bathroom to take a shower. He didn’t want to go to school. He didn’t have time to write yesterday’s homework.

However, considering that there was still training for the sports meeting, Fu Yuanzhou still went. He also had a relay running event. Everyone was practicing hard, and he had left early yesterday.

He arrived at the school before the start of the morning self-study. He was surprised to find that Yuan Ye was not late today. This was the first time since school started. He was surprised when Yuan Ye came to his desk and asked him, “Are you alright?”

“I’m fine. I’m okay.” Fu Yuanzhou said, “What’s wrong with you, you came so early?”

“For you.” Yuan Ye smiled, “I sent you a message, but you didn’t answer me, so I came to school, thinking that I could see you sooner. If you don’t come, I could still copy your notes for you. You said you have to study hard, and good students who don’t have notes will cry?”

“Thank you…”

Fu Yuanzhou’s ears were hot, he felt both moved and embarrassed.

He really didn’t have time to reply to the message of Yuan Ye, and it was not only Yuan Ye, but everyone. After he left training early yesterday, many people sent him messages one after another, asking him if he was uncomfortable, and for their concern, he was very grateful, but he thought that he would reply them when he met them in school.

“It’s fine if you’re fine.”

Yuan Ye patted his head: “Let’s go out for lunch together at noon? It’s my treat. I didn’t invite you after last time. I’m really sorry.”

No. 1 Middle School had a long lunch break. An hour and a half was enough for them to go out to eat. Fu Yuanzhou thought about it and quickly agreed. Last time, Yuan Ye invited him to go to Tiancheng Middle School to eat, but someone came to make trouble before he could eat, so he had to come back in a hurry.

During the lunch break, the two went off-campus to find a Japanese restaurant, which was chosen by Fu Yuanzhou. He still liked this restaurant.

The two sat down in their seats, Fu Yuanzhou ordered the dishes, Yuan Ye looked at him for a while with his chin up, and suddenly said, “Are you interested in exchanging secrets?”

“What are you talking about?” Fu Yuanzhou didn’t understand what he meant.

“Do you remember? I met a few people last time when I invited you to a meal, and I almost got into a fight. At that time, you asked me what kind of grudges I had with them. I didn’t tell you, but now I want to.”

Yuan Ye smiled, then he lowered his voice a bit, and lowered his eyelashes which covered his icy cold eyes.

“I want to know what that man did to you, and why are you so afraid of him? If you don’t want to go into detail, you can just answer me one question: Has he ever hurt you?”

Fu Yuanzhou was stunned, not sure how to answer Yuan Ye.

Suddenly Yuan Ye restrained his chilliness, and smiled at Fu Yuanzhou again: “We share each other’s secrets, so I will feel a little more relaxed? I don’t want to…”

Look at you crying.

It was just that Yuan Ye hadn’t finished speaking, but suddenly his expression changed slightly, he picked up the menu and covered Fu Yuanzhou’s face from the side.

“Shh, don’t move.”

Yuan Ye lowered his voice to remind Fu Yuanzhou, staring at the young man who pushed in the door, his eyes cold and sharp.

“The person from yesterday also came in.”

  1. You never know who is really on the other end of the screen. Someone this obsessed won’t have that much difficulty tracking him down. Maybe it’s a good thing there are so many harem candidates? More protection?

    Thanks for your hard work translating!
