How did Xiaofei meet Shen Xigou?

Fu Yuanzhou stood there, his expression almost blank. He wondered why these two people knew each other. Although they had both lived abroad, they were from two different countries, and they had only met a few times through his introduction in their previous life.

How could this be?

At this moment, Fu Yuanzhou wanted to rush up to pull Yu Fei and run away, but Yu Fei was talking with Shen Xigou, so he didn’t dare to go over.

Yu Fei smiled and asked Shen Xigou: “When did you return to China?”

“Three days ago, I decided to come back on a temporary basis, and I didn’t tell anyone.” Shen Xigou responded with a smile, but was also a little surprised, “You knew I would be going back to China, but I didn’t expect to meet you.”

“My family lives here, I’m having dinner with friends today, if you don’t have an appointment, you can dine with us.” Yu Fei said.


Shen Xigou didn’t refuse, Yu Fei smiled and turned back to Xie Lin and the others and said, “This is a friend I met abroad, me and him…” He was halfway through his words, when he asked with surprise in his eyes, “Where is Zhou?”

“He went to the bathroom.” Xie Lin said.

Fu Yuanzhou hurriedly ran into the bathroom and locked himself in a cubicle. He was still in shock, and it took a few seconds for him to let out a long sigh of relief.

Fortunately, he ran fast. Shen Xigou was talking to Xiaofei at the time, so he probably didn’t see him.

He was puzzled and couldn’t guess why these two people knew each other. After lunch, he must ask clearly, and then let Xiaofei and Shen Xigou draw a clear line, otherwise if they continued to stay in contact, the possibility of him being recognized would get still bigger.

If he wanted to ask Xiaofei to stay away from Shen Xigou, he must find a reason. How could he convince Xiaofei?

Fu Yuanzhou thought about it for a while, but he couldn’t think of a suitable reason for the time being, but he had to run away from this meal today, so he should excuse himself saying that he was not feeling well, and go away—

With that in mind, he pushed open the door and walked out of the cubicle to the bathroom outside, but there he saw Shen Xigou who was washing his hands with his back to him. He turned and then they looked at each other.


At this moment, Fu Yuanzhou’s body was stiff, and he used up almost all his strength to keep himself from showing any strange expression.

Shen Xigou smiled at him in a friendly manner and then continued to lower his head to wash his hands. Seeing that he didn’t pay much attention to him, Fu Yuanzhou breathed a sigh of relief and quickly turned away.

The young and handsome man took out a tissue, wiped his hands slowly, then his eyes swept over Fu Yuanzhou’s back, and he suddenly stopped.     

This figure felt so familiar to him that his eyes were stained with a little light, and his fingers tightened, but he did not rashly test him, instead he asked casually, “Are you a friend of Yu Fei?”

It wasn’t about Seven, if it was, Fu Yuanzhou would have fled immediately, but no, Shen Xigou’s question was about his relationship with Yu Fei. He walked fast just now, and he didn’t know what conversation they had exchanged. If he fled from here immediately, it would look very suspicious.

He couldn’t recognize him now, could he?

“Yes.” Taking a risk, Fu Yuanzhou turned around and responded with a slight smile, “How did you know?”

“I am a friend Yu Fei met abroad. I heard that one of his friends went to the bathroom. I thought it might be you.”

Shen Xigou smiled, then his eyes swept over Fu Yuanzhou little by little, and after he looked at him from head to toe very carefully, his eyes were full of appreciation, as if he was watching a precious art piece.

This look was exactly the same as when the two of them met for the first time in his previous life. Fu Yuanzhou was so flustered because he didn’t know if Shen Xigou recognized him, or if he simply admired his appearance.

Shen Xigou threw the tissue away, walked up to him and asked with a smile, “Go back together?”

“No need.” Fu Yuanzhou endured his fast heartbeat, shook his head and said, “I’m not feeling well, so I’ll go back first.”

“Where is it uncomfortable?” Shen Xigou’s eyes never left him, as if his attention could not be distracted, “I’ll take you to the hospital.”

“I’ll go back…” Fu Yuanzhou wanted to say that he was going to go home directly, but he was afraid that Shen Xigou would consult his home address. If he left first, and Shen Xigou asked Xiaofei, then what would he do? He hadn’t had time to tell Xiaofei.

He pretended to change his mind and said, “I will ask Yu Fei to send me.” In this way, he didn’t have to worry about Xiao Fei being asked anything.

“I’ll accompany you.” Shen Xigou said, “It will be more convenient for you to have multiple people taking care of you.”

“Really not…”

Fu Yuanzhou was about to refuse again, but the door of the bathroom was pushed open from the outside, it was Yu Fei who had come to look for him. Seeing that he was here, he smiled and said, “Zhou, you haven’t come out after a long time, so I came to look for you.” Then he looked at the two in front of him, “Are you talking?”

“Yes.” Shen Xigou finally stopped looking at Fu Yuanzhou unblinkingly, “Your friend said he is not feeling well, I asked him if he needs to go to the hospital.”

“Are you not feeling well?” Yu Fei came over worriedly and held Fu Yuanzhou’s shoulders. “What’s wrong?”

“It’s alright, it’s much better.”

Fu Yuanzhou realized that he might not be able to walk away, so he shook his head and said, “Go back to eat.”

“It really feels better?” Yu Fei was still worried.

“It’s alright.” Fu Yuanzhou pulled his sleeve, “Let’s go.”

Being held by him, Yu Fei was startled, his expression became gentler, he held his hand back and followed him out.

Shen Xigou followed behind the two of them, focusing all his attention on Fu Yuanzhou’s back, the corners of his lips twitched, and a smile appeared from the bottom of his eyes. But when his eyes swept over the hands that were entwined, he was more concerned, and a haze appeared in his eyes.
