He had to go to school tomorrow so Fu Yuanzhou rejected Yuan Ye’s invitation to play games and went to bed early, but he didn’t sleep well. Meeting Shen Xigou awakened his memories of the past, and he had a dream about the past.
He dreamed of what happened when he and Xie Lin broke up.
At that time, his father had just been in a car accident and was unconscious in the intensive care unit. He sat outside covering his face. The last time he met his father, he had a big fight with him and ran out of the house. He didn’t go home for a long time and now when he saw his father again, they were looking at each other through the door of the ICU.
His mother had died less than a year ago, and his father’s life was at stake now. He had collapsed and felt helpless. It was Shen Xigou who held him in his arms to comfort him and who supported him through the darkest period of his life.
It wasn’t until a few days later that Xie Lin finally showed up. Seeing him rush to the hospital, Fu Yuanzhou couldn’t help but wonder, where did he go these days, why did he come now, and why didn’t he show up when he needed him the most?
Such thoughts flashed through Fu Yuanzhou’s mind, but he didn’t blame Xie Lin, he just hated himself for being unpromising. Xie Lin still had his own business to work on, the two of them were just childhood friends, and he was not qualified to ask Xie Lin to stay by his side all the time.
It was good of him to come to see his father and himself. Fu Yuanzhou thought so, then he reluctantly cheered up to say hello to Xie Lin, but Xie Lin looked at him with icy cold eyes and pinned him to the spot.
“You must cut off contact with Shen Xigou.” Xie Lin said.
Fu Yuanzhou was stunned, finding it completely unexpected that Xie Lin’s first sentence when he saw him was this. There was no comfort, no warmth, and even his eyes were so indifferent.
He couldn’t control his emotions and quarreled with Xie Lin, in fact he almost hit him. At this time, Shen Xigou came over, stopped him, and asked him what was going on. After listening, he calmly asked Xie Lin: “What did I do wrong?”
“You know it yourself.” Xie Lin said.
“Go back.” Fu Yuanzhou hadn’t rested for several days in a row. He was so excited by Xie Lin that he felt dizzy and could not stand still.
Shen Xigou supported him, and he leaned against Shen Xigou’s arms, Xie Lin looked at the two of them and asked, “Do you still want to communicate with him?”
“Don’t worry about me.” Fu Yuanzhou said coldly, “Go away.”
Xie Lin’s eyes turned cold.
After a while, he said slowly, “Okay.” He paused, then said, “Since this is the case, there is no need for us to communicate in the future.”
Fu Yuanzhou still remembered how he felt when he heard this sentence, it was like being slapped on the face fiercely, his head was dazed, his face was burning, and he had never thought that one day Xie Lin would say such a thing to him.
He realized that Xie Lin was really disappointed with him this time. He wanted to stop Xie Lin, but he couldn’t speak. How should he stop him? Really cut off contact with Shen Xigou? He couldn’t.
Besides, he was also very angry at that time. It was okay if Xie Lin didn’t help him. But he even broke up with him at this time. What kind of friend was this with this kind of childishness?
Later, he learned from Yu Fei that Xie Lin did not show up during that time because he had been taking care of Fu Yuanzhou’s family’s company. He was often busy until late at night, but even so, he would take time to visit Fu Yuanzhou’s father in the hospital. But this time was always different from when Fu Yuanzhou was there, so they never met.
Fu Yuanzhou thought that their missing each other should be a coincidence. He regretted that he was angry with Xie Lin at the beginning, and sent a message to Xie Lin, but he never got a reply. He wasn’t able to wait for Xie Lin to contact him, and he didn’t even have a chance to meet him again.
Maybe Xie Lin really wanted to break up with him.
He was in constant pain, there was no one around him, his mother had died, his father was seriously ill, and Yuan Ye had gone abroad to get his hand injury treated.
Only Shen Xigou, only Shen Xigou was still with him.
Shen Xigou hugged him, comforted him gently, and patted his back: “I will always accompany you until I die.”
Fu Yuanzhou, who was sleeping, suddenly opened his eyes and woke up dripping with cold sweat. He then looked at the time on his phone. It was half past one in the morning, but he couldn’t fall asleep again.
He repeatedly recalled his dream and Xie Lin’s icy eyes kept appeared in his mind, which made his heart palpitate.
Affected by the emotions in the dream, he couldn’t help but take out his mobile phone and send a WeChat message to Xie Lin. Anyway, Xie Lin must be asleep now.
“I’m sorry, don’t leave me.”
He sent the text over and looking at the content in the green box, he sat quietly for a while, then he suddenly laughed at himself, feeling stupid, what was the use of sending it to the current Xie Lin, besides he could not express his remorse only in words, he still had to make up for it with his own actions.
Probably this was the sentimentality that rose late at night.
Within the time limit, he withdrew his message so as not to let it be seen by Xie Lin.
Unexpectedly, his mobile phone suddenly vibrated twice, and Xie Lin replied to him with a message.
“Haven’t slept yet?”
Had Xie Lin not slept yet? Could it be that the message he sent woke him up?
Fu Yuanzhou was surprised and asked Xie Lin what he wanted him to do, but Xie Lin didn’t reply. A few minutes later, he received the news again.
“Come out, I’m in front of your house.”
“Why are you here??”
Fu Yuanzhou sent the message, then grabbed the key and ran out.
Xie Lin stood in front of the door outside the house waiting for him. The night was dark, and the weather was getting cooler. There was a very dim light on the porch. He was wearing a coat to fend off the cold. He turned around when he heard the sound of the door opening.
“I’m sorry, did I disturb you by sending you a message?” Fu Yuanzhou asked, turning sideways to let Xie Lin in, “Come in?”
“I hadn’t slept yet.” Xie Lin shook his head, indicating that he would not go in, “I came to see you here.”
“Is it because of what I said just now?” Fu Yuanzhou asked, he hadn’t wanted Xie Lin to see it.
“What are you upset about?” Xie Lin asked, “Why did you apologize to me, and why do you think that I will leave you?”
This was not the first time. Fu Yuanzhou had said the same thing to him before, begging him not to leave him.
“I just got nervous in the middle of the night, but it’s actually nothing.” Fu Yuanzhou said embarrassedly, “I’m sorry, but I asked you to come here specially.”
Xie Lin said, “Is it related to Shen Xigou?”
Fu Yuanzhou was slightly startled, as he hadn’t expected Xie Lin to be so keen, but this matter had nothing to do with the current Shen Xigou, so he shook his head and said, “It has nothing to do with him.”
“I won’t leave you alone.” Xie Lin said, “No matter what happens.”
But you obviously did so before…
Fu Yuanzhou felt sour in his heart: “What if I did something unforgivable? For example, murder and arson, and everyone is disappointed with me and hated me.”
“You won’t.” Xie Lin stroked his hair, his movements very gentle, “You wouldn’t do such a thing.”
“What if?” Fu Yuanzhou kept his voice low, “Everyone can change.”
Xie Lin was silent for a while, then said, “If that were to happen, on such a day, I will let you change back. I will stop you from making mistakes, help you recover, and make up with you.”
He looked directly into Fu Yuanzhou’s eyes: “I will never leave you alone, unless,” he paused, “what you did was kill me.”
Fu Yuanzhou choked a little, and at this moment he really wanted to believe Xie Lin’s promise to him, that Xie Lin would never abandon him.
He didn’t know if Xie Lin went to find him after he was locked up by Shen Xigou, and if they met again, would he have forgiven him, but unfortunately, and now he had no way of knowing the answer.
Xie Lin reached out and wiped the corners of his slightly wet eyes, his voice was soft, as he said: “So I won’t leave you.”
Fu Yuanzhou wiped his sour eyes indiscriminately. he quickly suppressed the urge to cry, and nodded hastily: “Thank you, Xie Lin.”
“Satisfied?” Xie Lin asked.
“Satisfied…” Fu Yuanzhou was even more embarrassed.
“Okay, it’s my turn.”
Xie Lin said this, then he suddenly pressed Fu Yuanzhou against the wall, and stared into his eyes which were so deep that they seemed unfathomable.
“If I do something terribly wrong, will you cut off relations with me?”
How was that possible? He would never break up with Xie Lin again.
Fu Yuanzhou thought this, not to mention that he was sure that Xie Lin would never be as absurd as him, so he said without hesitation: “I won’t—”
“You think about it before answering me.”
Xie Lin raised his hand to touch his lips. When Fu Yuanzhou quietened, he began to stroke the back of Fu Yuanzhou’s neck, rubbing the glands there through the collar.
“I might do something too extreme to you.”
He lowered his head and approached Fu Yuanzhou’s face, their breaths interlaced, and he was very close to his lips. As long as he got a little closer, he would kiss him directly.
“I will kiss you, mark you, possess you, and even make you pregnant.”
“Even so, you will forgive me and not cut ties with me?”
