Everyone panicked, and hurriedly gathered around and asked, “What’s the matter with you?”

Xinyi gave them a strong smile, as if she was frightened, but now her mood was relatively stable: “I was robbed when I was coming here, and I was frightened. Fortunately, it was all right afterwards.”

“Robbery?” Her friend screamed, looked up and down over her body, and asked several questions, “Are you injured? Did you lose something? Did you call the police? Was someone caught?”

“I wasn’t injured, but someone helped me, and we went to the police station, so I wasted a bit of time. I originally came out early.” Xinyi nodded and looked back, “Fortunately, Mr. Shen helped me, and he kindly drove me here.”

The classmates followed her gaze, they were confused just now, so they didn’t notice a young man standing beside Xinyi, but he couldn’t be ignored anymore, because the man’s appearance was too outstanding.

In fact, many people present had an impression of this man. They had seen him at the sports meeting. His mixed-race handsome appearance, especially his blue jewel-like eyes, would be hard to forget as long as they saw him once.

“Hello.”

The young man smiled gently at them, but Fu Yuanzhou’s complexion suddenly changed, and Yuan Ye didn’t have any good feelings as well.

Shen Xigou.

How could he come here?

Fu Yuanzhou instinctively thought that this must not be a coincidence. It might be that Shen Xigou investigated his address in advance, and even the accidental rescue of Xinyi was directed and acted by Shen Xigou.

Regardless of the facts, one thing was certain, his address had been exposed to Shen Xigou, and as long as Shen Xigou wanted, he could come here to find him at any time.

Fu Yuanzhou’s heartbeat almost stopped, he could only hope that it was really a coincidence, if so, he would definitely not admit that this was his home – but at this time Shen Xigou asked Xinyi with a smile, “This is Yuanzhou’s house? This is my first time here.”

“Yes.” Xinyi’s attitude towards her benefactor was very friendly, “It’s a coincidence, it turns out that Mr. Shen and Yuanzhou are friends.”

“Yes.” Shen Xigou replied with a smile.

“Lorenzo, you…”

Yu Fei frowned, hesitant to say anything, but Yuan Ye was rude to Shen Xigou as he sneered: “A coincidence?”

However, Shen Xigou was not angry, he just kept a peaceful smile on his face, as he raised his hand and asked, “Sorry, can I use the bathroom?”

His hand was stained with blood, and there was a wound on his palm, Xinyi took a deep breath and said in silence “When did you get hurt?”

“It doesn’t matter.” Shen Xigou’s eyes fell on Fu Yuanzhou, and he asked again, “Is it alright?”

Fu Yuanzhou’s heart trembled, as the blood reminded him of the previous life’s Shen Xigou’s self-inflicted injuries which made him very confused for a while, as well as fearful and flustered, but he also felt an inexplicable pain, so he said in a dry voice: “…you come in.”

“Thank you.” Shen Xigou smiled, and his tone was different from before, before if it was a polite smile, this time it was a genuine smile from the heart.

He walked inside the house, Xinyi and others also followed him, but Xie Lin and the others didn’t go in, looking at Fu Yuanzhou who was still standing there.

“You don’t want to see him, right? Then don’t go in. Just go out and hide for a while. I’ll let him wash his hands and leave.” Yuan Ye said.

“It’s all right.” Fu Yuanzhou said after a moment of silence, “I’ll ask Dr. Sun to come and see him.”

He called the family doctor, and Dr. Sun said that he would be there soon, so he and Xie Lin went in. Shen Xigou had washed the blood off his hands and sat with the other students to talk to them, but all his questions were about Fu Yuanzhou.

“You’re here.” Seeing Fu Yuanzhou come in, Shen Xigou stood up and said to him, “Can I talk to you alone?”

“What do you guys have to talk about?” Yuan Ye raised his eyebrows.

“It’s some personal affairs between me and him.” Shen Xigou said, “If you’re worried, I’ll talk to him outside.” He pointed to the terrace outside the floor-to-ceiling window, which could be seen clearly from the living room.

Fu Yuanzhou was silent, he didn’t want to chat with Shen Xigou, but Shen Xigou looked at him and suddenly called him.

“Seven.”

He called firmly.

Hearing this familiar name, Fu Yuanzhou’s fingertips trembled, and he walked towards the terrace. Shen Xigou went with him, closed the floor-to-ceiling windows, they could be watched by everyone, but nobody could hear them.

“Sorry, saving your classmate, I admit it was not entirely a coincidence.”

Only the two of them were there, Fu Yuanzhou looked down at the ground, and Shen Xigou said, “I knew she was your classmate. I noticed that she was cheering for you at the sports meeting, and I remembered her appearance, so I saved her today, otherwise I would not care.”

“She said she wanted to come to your house to play, I brought her here to see you and to confirm one thing—”

“You are Seven.”

He took out his phone and showed Fu Yuanzhou the photo.

“I don’t want to use special means to investigate you, fearing it would make you hate me even more, so I found evidence myself, and now I can finally prove your identity. Look, this is the picture you sent me with the account ‘Seven’ before, it was your home.”

After seeing the photo, Fu Yuanzhou’s expression froze. The living room in the photo was exactly the same as his home, and even the small furnishings were exactly the same. This was unquestionable evidence.

If he would have remembered that he had sent such a photo to Shen Xigou, he would never have let Shen Xigou enter the door today, but he had long forgotten what he had sent, so he had no excuse.

He remained silent, but the change in his expression had already explained everything. Shen Xigou looked at him, and finally some emotions that he had forbore for a long time appeared in his eyes.

“Why didn’t you admit that you were Seven?” he asked, “Why did you cut off contact with me? I came to you, but you avoided me, was I so annoying to you?”

“I have nothing to explain.” Fu Yuanzhou took a step back, his whole body stiff.

“I don’t understand.” Shen Xigou said slowly, “The day before you blocked me, we had a good chat. You obviously like me as a friend very much, why did you change your attitude just a day later? What did I do? What made you hate me?”

“You don’t need to know the reason.” Fu Yuanzhou said, “Thank you for saving my classmate, the doctor will come to treat your wound in a while, and I hope you leave immediately.”

“I’m afraid of being hated by you. “Shen Xigou looked at him, “But if you can’t give me a good reason, even if you hate me, I won’t give up.”

“Whatever you want.”

Fu Yuanzhou couldn’t go on anymore, just staying here, it was enough to suffocate him. Seeing that he was about to leave, Shen Xigou reached out and grabbed his wrist: “Seven—”

“Don’t touch me!”

Fu Yuanzhou threw Shen Xigou’s hand away, his face pale, and his reaction was intense.

Shen Xigou’s hand stopped in midair.

“…Are you afraid of me?” After a few seconds of silence, he asked in a low voice, “You not only hate me, you are afraid of me? Do you think I will hurt you, or…I have already hurt you?”

The conflict between the two of them was clearly seen by the people in the living room. Yuan Ye was guarding nearby. He opened the floor-to-ceiling windows first and came to take Fu Yuanzhou away. Then he warned Shen Xigou in a cold voice: “If you touch him again, I will break your hand.”

Yu Fei and Shen Xigou were friends before, and Shen Xigou held some of his secrets, but at this moment he didn’t have any smile on his face as well: “What have you done to Yuanyuan?”

“What can I do?” Shen Xigou lowered his eyes, “What can I do to him?”

“Only you know.” Yu Fei said.

Seeing this scene, Xinyi and other classmates were at a loss. They had a good impression of Shen Xigou and thought that he and Yuanzhou were friends, but now it seemed that this was not the case at all.

Fu Yuanzhou went back to his room and hid. After a while, Xie Lin entered the room and said to him, “He’s gone.”

“Gone?” Hearing that Shen Xigou had left, Fu Yuanzhou breathed a sigh of relief and collapsed on the bed.

He didn’t expect that Shen Xigou still learnt his identity just now, also he called him by the name Seven, and the blood stains made him have the illusion that he was back in captivity, so he was terrified for a moment.

After staying by himself for a while, he felt much better, and now he felt very relieved when he saw Xie Lin. He wanted to hug Xie Lin a little but was embarrassed.

But Xie Lin seemed to have seen through his mind, so he pulled him up from the bed, hugged him, patted his back and asked, “Go down? Or should we continue to rest?”

“I’m fine, let’s go down. It’s not good to keep everyone waiting.”

Fu Yuanzhou rubbed his face, he had called his classmates to play today for fun, so he didn’t want to ruin everyone’s happiness.

He cheered himself up so that he didn’t look so gloomy, and went downstairs with Xie Lin. When the classmates saw him coming out, they were all concerned about him, and tacitly did not mention Shen Xigou again.

As for the game of truth and dare, Fu Yuanzhou said that he had chosen someone for Xie Lin, and it was himself. He said it in a joking tone, and the classmates laughed, but they didn’t make too much noise. Everyone was noisy for a day, and they didn’t go away until night.

Fu Yuanzhou went to bed early that day, and no one bothered him too much, but he had another night full of dreams, and he didn’t sleep well.

The sound of trucks driving by was constantly heard outside, especially in the quiet villa area. Fu Yuanzhou really couldn’t sleep. He opened the curtains, looked out and found that that a new occupant had moved into the idle villa opposite, and the trucks must be moving in the person’s belongings.

He was a little curious, so he walked out of the house in his pajamas, stood in the yard and looked at the door, but when he saw the new resident, he was instantly stunned and stood there dumbfounded.

Shen Xigou turned his back to him and stood in the courtyard of the villa opposite, then as if he had felt something, he turned his head, saw Fu Yuanzhou, nodded at him, and said with a smile.

“Hello, Seven, starting today, I’m your new neighbor.”
