When they heard the name of the piano piece, Sister Cheng and Fu Yuanzhou were startled, but their reactions were different.
“You two are so sweet.”
Sister Cheng laughed, and Fu Yuanzhou was still stunned. Unlike what he remembered, the song Xie Lin gave him had a name this time, and it was called “Love”.
Was it because Xie Lin fell in love with him very early in this life, so the title of the song was different? Did that also mean that these were two different songs?
Although he felt that this was the case, at this moment Fu Yuanzhou thought of another possibility, his heart trembled violently, and a little sweat oozed from his palms.
If it was really the same song…Impossible? Could it be that Xie Lin had been in a dazed state since before, thinking of this Fu Yuanzhou returned to the room in a trance.
He and Xie Lin naturally had to sleep separately. He was the only one in the room. He turned off the light and went to bed, but he couldn’t fall asleep, and kept tossing and turning. He was even a little tormented.
Although the melody played by Xie Lin just now was different from his previous life, the main body was still very similar.
Fu Yuanzhou opened his eyes and looked at the darkness ahead, and suddenly remembered the way Xie Lin looked at him when he said he liked it after he had finished playing it that day in his past life.
It didn’t look like he was happy, on the contrary, he seemed depressed, and he seemed to be hiding complicated feelings, but Xie Lin didn’t say anything in the end, just raised his hand wordlessly, his warm fingers fell on the top of his hair, stroking his hair lightly.
At that time, Fu Yuanzhou didn’t feel anything special, but there was a strange feeling in his heart. He thought it was just a small episode, and he didn’t specifically ask Xie Lin in the future, but occasionally he would suddenly think of it for no reason, and his chest would feel tight every time.
It wasn’t a big deal, but he remembered it, and the impression was very deep, until now he could clearly recall that look.
Fu Yuanzhou felt uncomfortable in his heart. He didn’t dare to think about it any longer. He lifted the quilt and sat up. He took the room key and walked outside.
It was late at night, and he was wandering aimlessly in the corridor. The lights were dim, and the wide windows let in the moonlight. Everywhere was quiet and seemed a little lonely.
Fu Yuanzhou stood in front of the window for a while, looking at the mist rising outside. When someone suddenly called him softly, he looked back, it was Sister Cheng, seeing her he asked unexpectedly, “Sister Cheng, you haven’t slept yet.”
“I was making a list, I’m going now.” Sister Cheng asked him with a smile, “Didn’t you sleep? Why, you’re so happy that you can’t sleep?”
She thought that Fu Yuanzhou was too moved by Xie Lin’s tune, and thus he was suffering from insomnia, but after she finished speaking, she saw that Fu Yuanzhou was smiling reluctantly, clearly not happy, seeing this she was stunned, and asked, “What’s the matter, is there something wrong, why don’t you tell me?”
Fu Yuanzhou was still hesitating, Sister Cheng saw that he needed to have a heart-to-heart talk with someone, so she simply took him to the lounge, poured him a glass of water, and sat down face to face: “Tell me, don’t think about it yourself.”
“Have you seen it long ago that Xie Lin likes me?” Fu Yuanzhou was silent for a while, then asked her.
“Yeah.” Sister Cheng nodded. “It’s quite obvious to me. He has liked you for a long time. I feel like he liked you at least since junior high school. Why, didn’t you know that before?”
“I didn’t know, he just confessed to me recently.” Fu Yuanzhou said.
“He just confessed recently?” Sister Cheng was very surprised, “I thought he had confessed to you long ago. Seeing that the two of you haven’t been together, I still thought he was out of the game, you have been childhood sweethearts for so many years, if the average person wants to grow up early, I would not support it, but the two of you are a special case.”
Fu Yuanzhou was speechless, this was the truth. He asked again, “In your opinion, what did Xie Lin like about me before?”
He was a little nervous and wanted to know if the details of Xie Lin’s liking for him in this life could overlap with the previous one. If they were the same, then maybe it meant that Xie Lin also treated him like that in his previous life…
“That’s a lot, let me think about it.”
Sister Cheng recalled: “For example, I have heard that you say good morning and night to each other every day, right? You have maintained this habit for many years, and ordinary friends don’t do this. Right.”
Fu Yuanzhou didn’t say anything. This habit started after the summer vacation when his grandfather died. After returning from the countryside, he was still very sad and couldn’t sleep at night. Only when he saw Xie Lin say good night to him would he feel comforted, after he gradually stepped out of the shadows, this habit was retained, and it had not changed for many years.
“For example, you wanted to act in a drama when you were in the first year of junior high school. At that time, your class’s chosen play was “Sleeping Beauty”, but it was rejected. You wanted to play the prince but didn’t make it, and you were quite depressed. Maybe you don’t know, each class’s repertoire must be submitted to the student council for review first, your repertoire was killed by Xie Lin himself, I guess it was because he did not want you to play the prince.”
Sister Cheng laughed, but Fu Yuanzhou felt his heart tighten, this had happened in his previous life as well. He really didn’t know that it was Xie Lin who killed the play. He thought it was the instructor of the student union. Later, he asked Xie Lin to intercede with the teacher, but Xie Lin didn’t agree with him. It was convenient to say, but he didn’t expect that Xie Lin didn’t let him pass.
“But Sister Cheng, how do you know that he didn’t let it pass?”
“Oh, he got it at home. I went to help his mother that day and happened to see it.”
Sister Cheng smiled: “I heard you complain to me later, I was quite surprised, I almost blurted it out, but I held back. After that, I started to pay attention and found that he probably likes you.”
“Then why didn’t he say it…” Fu Yuanzhou muttered.
“He just has too many concerns.” Sister Cheng said, “you know that his parents are very strict with him, and there may be some things we don’t know about. He is not as cheerful as you, and he hides everything in his heart. It took more than ten years to confess to you, what would he do if you were taken away by someone else.”
She said this, making Fu Yuanzhou involuntarily think of his past relationship with Yu Fei.
At that time, as soon as he and Yu Fei confirmed their relationship, he told Xie Lin about it.
He felt that Xie Lin seemed to be unhappy, and deliberately hooked Xie Lin’s neck to tease him, saying that Xie Lin should not be afraid about their friendship, and told Xie Lin to rest assured that they will always be best friends, saying maybe they would even become relatives, and he would be his brother-in-law in the future.
Naturally, he wasn’t serious. He had just started dating Yu Fei, so how could he possibly consider getting married, and he was just teasing Xie Lin, but who knew that Xie Lin shook off his hand and walked away. Later, whenever he saw him and Yu Fei together, Xie Lin would always turn around and leave.
He was very at a loss. He didn’t know why Xie Lin had such a big opinion about his relationship with Yu Fei. If he said he was protecting his sister, it didn’t seem right. He didn’t see how good the relationship between the cousins was. On the contrary, the two of them had a better relationship with him.
He discussed this matter with Yu Fei and wanted to hear what she thought. He was afraid that Xie Lin’s attitude would hurt her. Yu Fei was indeed sad, but it was not because of Xie Lin’s attitude, but because of herself.
She had a strange sense of guilt towards Xie Lin, and said softly, “I’m sorry for him.”
“Why do you say that?”
At that time, he asked, “Do you think we left your brother in the cold? No, why should we be sorry?”
He was really confused, he thought he had taken enough care of Xie Lin’s emotions, in order not to neglect Xie Lin, he even rarely dated Xiao Fei alone, it was always the three of them together, and they usually kept their relationship as low-key as possible, never showing affection in front of him, in fact he still felt sorry for Xiao Fei, he didn’t understand why Xie Lin was getting angry?
“No… It has nothing to do with you, Zhou, I am sorry for him.” Yu Fei said softly, “I robbed you from him, I know…but I will not regret it.”
“How can it be called robbing someone from him.” He said with a smile, “No matter how good our relationship is, we will both start a family and start a business in the future. It is impossible to be two bachelors together for the rest of our lives, right, that would be too miserable.”
He still remembered that Xiao Fei also laughed at that time and didn’t say anything more.
What made him feel a little powerless at the time was that since he and Xiao Fei had been dating, he and Xie Lin were no longer as close as they used to be.
After a few years like this, when he broke up with Xiaofei, he went to Shen Xigou’s place to relax. Then when he returned to China, Xie Lin picked him up at the airport, and told him that their breakup was what he wanted.
At that time, he was angry and aggrieved, and felt that Xie Lin was too impersonal, but now that he thought about it, that sentence had a deeper meaning – Xie Lin sent him an unnamed song while staring into his eyes, Xiao Fei’s guilt, Xie Lin’s avoidance towards them…
Everything seemed to have been revealed.
It was not that the piano music in the previous life had no name, but Xie Lin just didn’t tell him.
It turned out that he had loved him for two lifetimes.
Fu Yuanzhou’s heart ached so badly, his eyes went instantly red, and he was almost unable to breathe.
“What’s the matter with you?” Sister Cheng was taken aback, he was fine just now, why was he crying all of a sudden?
Fu Yuanzhou sniffed, his voice a little hoarse: “Can you give me the spare room card for Xie Lin’s room, I want to go see him.”
He couldn’t wait any longer, he wanted to see Xie Lin now, but it was very late now, Xie Lin should be sleeping, he didn’t want to disturb his rest, he just wanted to go in quietly to see him.
Sister Cheng was a little surprised, but she agreed and brought Fu Yuanzhou a spare room card. Fortunately, Xie Lin hadn’t put up the anti-theft chain, so Fu Yuanzhou went in after swiping the card.
Xie Lin really was asleep, Fu Yuanzhou walked in lightly, making sure not to wake him up, Xie Lin had left a dim lamp on, so he could see Xie Lin’s face clearly, he was used to seeing Xie Lin over the years, but now the more he looked, the more he liked it, and the more he looked, the more he fell in love with him.
Fu Yuanzhou squatted down slowly, lying on the side of the bed and looking at Xie Lin. After watching him like this for a long time, his heart finally stopped hurting so much, but the gap was gradually filled with a sweeter and purer love.
Fortunately, this time they didn’t miss each other.
Fortunately, this time he finally knew Xie Lin’s love for him, and he was fortunate enough to fall in love with Xie Lin as well.
But perhaps it shouldn’t be called “lucky”, because Xie Lin captured him little by little and let him sink into his deep love. Xie Lin said that falling in love with him was a natural thing, and he liked Xie Lin as well. With such a good Xie Lin, why would he not like him?
Fu Yuanzhou wanted to cry a little, while staring at Xie Lin’s sleeping face, he had the sudden urge to kiss him.
He slowly approached Xie Lin’s lips and stopped abruptly before pressing on his lips. He was amused and ashamed of his behavior, stealing kisses while he was sleeping, what was this…
He didn’t want to wake Xie Lin up, so again he stepped back, but just as he was about to get up, a hand clasped the back of his head, pressed his face down, and kissed his soft lips.
