Early the next morning, before Zhai Xingchen got up, he heard someone knocking on his door.
He raised his head sleepily: “Who is it?”
It was Yan Zhi’s voice.
He saw Yan Zhi coming in.
The room was a little dark. So,, he reached out to turn on the light, but Yan Zhi said softly: “No need to turn it on.”
Zhai Xingchen lay down again, wrapped in his quilt and looked at Yan Zhi.
The room was very dark. Yan Zhi knelt down at the head of his bed and said, “I have to catch a flight, so I have to leave. I wanted to tell you before leaving.”
Zhai Xingchen said “Hmm”.
He felt that Yan Zhi was really polite. He wanted to tell everyone before he left.
Perhaps because he had just woken up, his heart was soft, and he still felt a little sad about separation.
Yan Zhi looked at him in the dim morning light, squatted beside his bed, looked at him and said, “See you in a few days.”
“Well, goodbye.” Zhai Xingchen felt that since he knew it was almost dawn, he should get up and see Yan Zhi off.
He lifted the quilt and sat up.
Yan Zhi was stunned for a moment and said, “You don’t have to get up.”
“It’s time to get up.” Zhai Xingchen said, “I have to cook later.”
After he lifted the quilt, his breath floated under Yan Zhi’s nose. It was warm and had a light fragrance.
This was a somewhat addictive taste that he had become familiar with.
Yan Zhi took a step back and watched Zhai Xingchen get out of bed.
Zhai Xingchen was wearing pyjamas, so he took a coat and put it on, and then came out of the room with Yan Zhi.
When passing by the bathroom, he found that Pei Xu had also gotten up. He must have just gotten up and was still squeezing out toothpaste.
When Pei Xu saw the two of them, he was stunned for a moment, then fixed his eyes on Yan Zhi’s face and asked, “Are you leaving?”
Yan Zhi said “Hmm”.
There were two large suitcases in the living room. Zhai Xingchen wanted to help Yan Zhi carry one, but Yan Zhi said, “No, it’s very heavy. I can carry it myself.”
“Don’t underestimate me.” Zhai Xingchen’s voice was still a little hoarse and soft, and Yan Zhi’s heart was filled with the sadness of parting.
He was actually a little reluctant.
Such a short parting.
He didn’t insist and watched Zhai Xingchen carrying his suitcase out the door.
“Bon voyage.” Zhai Xingchen said.
Yan Zhi closed the trunk and saw his dedicated cameraman running over from the yard next door.
The morning light was getting brighter and there was a thin mist in the air. Zhai Xingchen automatically took a few steps back and stood on the side of the road.
Yan Zhi got in the car and started the car.
The car turned a corner and passed by Zhai Xingchen. Yan Zhi lowered the window, looked at him and said, “Bye.”
Zhai Xingchen yawned and nodded.
He felt so sleepy and lazy.
Zhai Xingchen considered him a good friend, but Zhai Xingchen did not love him.
Yan Zhi suddenly leaned against the car window.
Just like when he first went to Zhongwu to pick up Zhai Xingchen.
Zhai Xingchen raised his eyebrows, his tired eyebrows looking haggard and cute.
Yan Zhi hooked his hand and motioned for him to come over.
Zhai Xingchen bent down and put his head in front of the car window.
Yan Zhi took a small glass bottle from the car and holding it out with his fair and beautiful fingers, he said: “Here you go.”
“What is it?”
“I made my own perfume.”
Zhai Xingchen looked very surprised.
“Did you mix it yourself?”
It was so sentimental.
“I have nothing to do. I went to my friend’s company to get it. I thought you might like it, so I’ll give it to you. Thank you for getting up and seeing me off.”
Zhai Xingchen smiled, with a gentle smile on his sleepy face, and reached out to take the bottle of perfume.
“I’m really going this time.” Yan Zhi said.
He watched Yan Zhi walk away and looked at the bottle of perfume in his hand.
He sprayed a little on his wrist and smelled it.
It actually had a light floral scent, it was slightly bitter, and it was not like the scent of ordinary flowers. It was very light, and it was common to flowers with very light floral scents such as gypsophila to have a very ordinary smell.
He quite liked it. He didn’t like things that were too fragrant, and he didn’t usually use perfume. Such an ordinary scent was very suitable for an ordinary person like him.
Like being surrounded by flowers.
He put the perfume in his pocket and walked back.
When he walked in, he saw Pei Xu.
Pei Xu had returned to his usual appearance, wearing a black sweatshirt and a baseball cap, as he asked, “Are you leaving?”
“Let’s go.” Zhai Xingchen asked, “Are you going for a run?”
Pei Xu said, “I won’t go for a run today. Are you going to make breakfast?”
Zhai Xingchen said “Hmm”.
“You go and wash up first,” Pei Xu said.
Zhai Xingchen went back to wash up. When he came out after washing, he saw Pei Xu already standing in the kitchen. There was a mobile phone on the table. He had been staring at the mobile phone and pouring oil into the pot.
Zhai Xingchen had completely recovered from his sleepiness by now: “Why are you starting to cook too?”
“Just wanted to help you a little bit,” Pei Xu said.
Zhai Xingchen walked over and took a look and found that Pei Xu was watching a video to learn how to fry eggs.
He did it in style.
“What time will you leave today?” Pei Xu asked.
Zhai Xingchen said while cooking: “I don’t know, I’ll wait until you all leave.”
“I don’t have to leave early. If necessary, I can take you home.” Pei Xu said.
As soon as he finished speaking, he heard footsteps.
The two looked up and saw Huo Cheng coming out of the bedroom.
Huo Cheng was obviously stunned when he saw the two of them in the kitchen.
Huo Cheng walked across from Pei Xu, looked at the fried eggs in the pot and said, “It looks good.”
Pei Xu said, “I learned it from Brother Zhai.”
Huo Cheng said: “Famous teachers produce great disciples.”
Hu Ying, Wen Nuo and others also got up one after another.
“I said I was going to help Brother Xing cook, and you guys really got started.” Hu Ying said and glanced at Zhai Xingchen.
Zhai Xingchen looked up at him with a smile, looking at home while wearing an apron.
Hu Ying avoided his gaze.
When it was time to have breakfast, only Duan Yihua hadn’t gotten up yet.
“I just went to check on him, and Brother Duan said he would get up later,” Wen Nuo said.
Zhai Xingchen said to Hu Ying: “Do you have work in the morning?”
Hu Ying said: “No.”
“Then let’s go to the supermarket together later. I’ll make a big meal for noon, and the three of us will eat before we leave.”
Hu Ying hesitated for a while and said, “Okay.”
Huo Cheng looked at Pei Xu: “Are you okay this morning?”
He would not let Zhai Xingchen be alone with Hu Ying.
Pei Xu said: “No.”
“Then let’s all go together.” Huo Cheng said and looked at Zhai Xingchen, “Don’t leave Pei Xu alone.”
Zhai Xingchen glanced at Pei Xu.
Hu Ying said: “Okay, let’s go together. There more people, the better.”
It was good to go together.
He didn’t know how to get along with Zhai Xingchen alone now.
He had a dream yesterday. He actually dreamed of Zhai Xingchen. Can you believe it?
In the dream, the two of them showed a relationship of 0.5.
They were like two entangled foxes.
After breakfast, Wen Nuo left first. They sent Wen Nuo away together.
Lin Qingning also left later.
“Has Yan Zhi left already?” Hu Ying asked.
“You just found out?” Zhai Xingchen said, “He left to catch the plane before dawn, and you didn’t even get up to see him off.”
Hu Ying asked: “Did anyone send him off? Did he leave alone? Isn’t it a bit pitiful?”
“I sent him off,” Zhai Xingchen said, “Don’t worry, with me here, none of you will leave alone. I’ll leave only after you are all sent away.”
Hu Ying and Huo Cheng glanced at Zhai Xingchen when they heard this.
Yes, with Zhai Xingchen here, they didn’t have to worry.
Zhai Xingchen’s personality was really even more charming than his appearance.
Although he was the youngest, he could take care of others better than anyone else.
“Then when you will be the last one dragging your luggage out of the red and blue cottage, won’t you feel sad?” Hu Ying asked.
His tone sounded like he was teasing, but he was actually really concerned about this matter.
He understood the feeling of loss and loneliness of being the last to leave.
“I’ll go with him,” said Pei Xu next to him.
Upon hearing this, Hu Ying turned and glanced at Pei Xu. Pei Xu stood beside him with his hands in his pockets. His skin looked almost as white as Zhai Xingchen in the sunlight.
After sending Lin Qingning away, Hu Ying went upstairs to dress up.
He had always been good at dressing, but today he struggled for a long time.
Not knowing which one he should wear, he tried on all the clothes, but none of them seemed suitable to him.
They were all too gorgeous, and he suddenly wanted to wear plain clothes, like a college student, like Zhai Xingchen.
Because he was about to leave, Zhai Xingchen cleaned the entire red and blue cottage.
Huo Cheng and Pei Xu helped him clean up.
“Brother Huo, shouldn’t you leave? Isn’t your flight at ten o’clock?”
Zhai Xingchen said while looking at the time.
“It’s very close to the airport.” Huo Cheng said.
But he really had to leave, and it would be too late if he didn’t leave.
He left home when he was a teenager, and when he was in high school, he only went home once every two months. Later, when he started his own business, he was in a hurry every time he went home.
He had long been used to separation.
But he was very reluctant to give up today.
He no longer looked like himself.
The first love was so long.
He washed his hands and said, “Then I’ll leave first. See you in Beicheng in a few days.”
Zhai Xingchen also took off his gloves: “I’ll send you off.”
Pei Xu glanced at Huo Cheng and said, “Goodbye, Brother Huo.”
Huo Cheng took a look and hoped that Pei Xu would not come out to see him off and let him have a few words with Zhai Xingchen alone.
“Have you got all your luggage?” Zhai Xingchen asked.
Huo Cheng said: “It has been put in the car in advance.”
Zhai Xingchen went to see him off and looked back at Pei Xu. Pei Xu didn’t say anything. He only gave him a brief signal and asked him to see Huo Cheng off by himself.
Pei Xu watched Huo Cheng and Zhai Xingchen go out, then lowered his head and continued wiping the dining table.
He knew why Huo Cheng kept dawdling. Huo Cheng was careless and sometimes looked like a careless person running rampant, but he was not as emotionally intelligent as Yan Zhi and was capable of causing trouble.
In the vases on the dining table, the gypsophila and forget-me-nots were almost withering.
Zhai Xingchen sent Huo Cheng to the car.
Different from the time when Yan Zhi was sent off, the sunshine was clear and bright now, similar to the first day they moved in.
Huo Cheng stopped and looked back at their red and blue cottage.
“Are you a little reluctant to leave?” Zhai Xingchen asked with a smile.
Huo Cheng said: “When I came here, I really didn’t expect it would be like this.”
He came to this show not to fall in love, but purely for his career.
He looked at Zhai Xingchen as he spoke, and some words almost came out of his mouth. His protruding Adam’s apple slid up and down. A grown man who had experienced a lot suddenly felt sour at this moment. Then he stretched out his arms.
The heartbeat was so fast.
Zhai Xingchen was stunned for a moment, then walked up with a smile.
He hugged Huo Cheng and said, “See you in Beicheng.”
Huo Cheng said “Hmm” and suddenly picked him up suddenly, making Zhai Xingchen startled.
Huo Cheng pushed him up hard and then put him down.
“Bye.” Huo Cheng opened the car door and got in.
Zhai Xingchen was left standing there blankly. When he came to his senses, Huo Cheng had already driven away.
