The elevator went down very fast, and it didn’t take long to reach the floor of the underground parking lot. Shen Yiyou thought that it might be the last time he came here, so he raised his head subconsciously, glanced at the newly replaced orchid potted plant opposite the elevator, and then looked back at his eyes in the mirror. He was flushed, then dragged the box and walked out.
He went through the glass door that opened automatically, found his car, opened the trunk, and laboriously picked up the luggage and put it in.
The trunk was small, but the box was huge, Shen Yiyou pushed the box in with difficulty, and was barely able to shut the trunk.
Shen Yiyou stood at the back of the car for a few seconds, feeling a little pain in his eyes, but his heartbeat was fairly slow.
He took a few steps slowly, got into the car, looked at the lit dashboard, and finally a layer of moisture appeared in his eyes uncontrollably.
Anyway, he had wasted three years in vain, his twenty-sixth birthday was approaching, and he was single again.
“Forget it, I don’t want you anymore.” Shen Yiyou muttered to himself in an angry voice, then blinked the water vapor away from his eyes, turned up the music, and stepped on the accelerator.
The elevated road near the hotel was pretty much empty, and the front and rear vehicles were covered in the torrential rain. The light yellow halo of the headlights was hazy at the edge, moving from time to time in his field of vision.
Shen Yiyou drove quickly, changing lanes fast, passing by the high street lights and tall buildings along the way, as the wipers wiped away the rainwater that had stuck to the glass, but soon new raindrops fell.
Just like Shen Yiyou’s bad mood, he was getting farther and farther away from Li Shu, but it still didn’t get better.
When he was about to get home, Shen Yiyou received a call from Xing Pei.
Xing Pei had been Shen Yiyou’s good friend for many years, and a part of Li Shu’s so-called “Shen Yiyou’s invalid social circle”, but Shen Yiyou liked to be with Xing Pei very much, because Xing Pei cared about him, but didn’t discipline him.
The background noise on Xing Pei’s side was very noisy, and he loudly asked where Shen Yiyou was now and if he wanted to come over for a drink.
Shen Yiyou was quiet for about ten seconds, not hearing Xing Pei’s question, but was involuntarily dazed, until Xing Pei raised his volume and asked him again, then he suddenly woke up, and told Xing Pei that he was driving, and asked Xing Pei to send the location and he would be there soon.
Xing Pei and a few other friends were singing in a club, and as soon as Shen Yiyou came into the box, he started drowning himself in drinks.
He was not good at drinking, so he was already blushing and dizzy after a few drinks. He felt the heat was unbearable, took off his jacket, and just saw the phone slip out of his pocket, so he took a look.
There were no missed calls, no new information, and there should be no more contact in the future. This was how Li Shu was. Shen Yiyou couldn’t help thinking through his rumbling heartbeat accelerated by alcohol. The attitude was exactly the same as before.
Li Shu fired an assistant in front of Shen Yiyou because the assistant did not handle his request in time. He persuaded the person on the other end of the phone to submit his resume in other places, saying, “Maybe some new startup will accept you as a front desk receptionist.”
At that time, Shen Yiyou was sitting on Li Shu’s desk, with their hands tightly clasped. Shen Yiyou looked at Li Shu’s profile and the way he was talking and felt that Li Shu seemed to be calm and slow, as if his temper was so good and gentle, but his words were so ruthless.
After hanging up the phone, Li Shu kissed Shen Yiyou on the forehead and asked Shen Yiyou to wait, then dialed the number of the human resources supervisor and asked the other party to immediately recruit another assistant to take over.
Shen Yiyou and Li Shu were in love, so he jokingly asked Li Shu, “Will you be so decisive when you broke up with me?”
Li Shu didn’t say “we will not break up”, instead he said, “you are different”.
But Shen Yiyou didn’t care, he felt that Li Shu’s eyes were serious and cute, so he leaned over and kissed the corner of his mouth. Li Shu took advantage of the situation to hold Shen Yiyou’s back, and kissed Shen Yiyou firmly.
His hand was firmly attached to Shen Yiyou’s body, and Shen Yiyou was also attached to him.
When dating, Shen Yiyou heard many similar remarks, saying that he was very special and different to Li Shu
At first, Shen Yiyou liked to hear such words, because he also felt that he was special, and then he gradually became sober, and he realized that even if he was really special, it was just an insignificant kind.
The strobe lights at the top of the private room kept turning, and the surrounding noisy sounds were indistinctly squeezed into Shen Yiyou’s ears.
Shen Yiyou knew that he couldn’t drink anymore, so he closed his eyes and rested on the sofa for a while. Just when he felt a little more awake, Xing Pei came to him and asked him in a low voice, “Why did you drink so much?”
He pressed Shen Yiyou’s shoulder and said, “Did you quarrel with your boyfriend?”
Shen Yiyou opened his eyes to look at him, shook his head, and said nothing. Xing Pei felt that he guessed right, picked up Shen Yiyou’s mobile phone, forcibly unlocked the face lock by showing the phone to his face, and opened the contact list.
It sounded weird, but Shen Yiyou had never brought his boyfriend out, and he didn’t mention him often. Xing Pei and Shen Yiyou were very close, but he only knew the other party’s name was Li Shu.
“I’ll let him pick you up, okay?” He found Li Shu’s number, shook it in front of Shen Yiyou, and looked at Shen Yiyou for his opinion.
Shen Yiyou didn’t speak, so Xing Pei dialed the number without authorization, and the other side answered almost immediately, and asked, “What’s the matter?” Shen Yiyou’s boyfriend’s voice was quite nice, but somehow it sounded very low, and his tone was also very cold.
Xing Pei was stunned for a while, and then said a little embarrassedly: “Hello, I’m a friend of Shen Yiyou. He’s drinking too much. Is it convenient for you to pick him up?”
As he spoke, he raised his eyes to look at Shen Yiyou, who was sitting obediently and looking at him honestly.
“Who are you calling?” Shen Yiyou asked. He had a pair of beautiful eyes that were unforgettable. Under the slowly turning mottled ambient lights, in the crowded club room full of relaxation and happiness, he seemed to be a little sad.
Xing Pei felt an instant grief, as if a thin needle was lightly pierced in his heart, but also as if his heart was clenched by a fist. He wanted to pat Shen Yiyou on the back and tell him that he had called Li Shu and he would definitely come to pick him up soon, but before he could raise his hand, he heard the person on the other end of the phone tell him, “It’s inconvenient.” After a short pause, the other party continued: “He has broken up with me. If there is nothing else, I will hang up.”
Xing Pei was stunned. The other party asked again if he could hang up. Xing Pei instinctively said “um” and the call was over.
There was no sound from the speaker next to his ear, but Shen Yiyou still looked at him silently, as if waiting for him to answer or send a message.
Xing Pei was very embarrassed.
He held the phone tightly, which was still put to his ear and listened, then brought it in front of his eyes, saw the static contact page, his gaze stayed there for a few seconds, then he whispered to himself: “Hung up.”
“What did he say?” Shen Yiyou asked Xing Pei again, his brows slightly wrinkled, looking a little distressed.
Xing Pei looked at him, his head seemed to be empty, and he couldn’t say anything.
Fortunately, Shen Yiyou didn’t care. He put the phone aside, thought about it for a while, and called him, “Peipei.” Then he said softly, “Call me a chauffeur. I want to go home.”
Xing Pei sobered up and helped Shen Yiyou downstairs.
The rain stopped outside, and the wind was strong, Shen Yiyou wrapped his trench coat tightly around him and got into the car. Xing Pei confirmed the location with the chauffeur, and then turned to go back inside after seeing the car drive out of sight.
