Chapter 64: Heart-Warming
Reality is so different from the imagination. Feeling like he got slapped in the face Zhang Siyi responded in a distorted expression: “You criticize my frequency and yet you want that every day! Are you not embarrassed?”
Gu Yu: “My situation is different from yours. If you don’t have a girlfriend now, then what do you think about while jerking off two-three times a week?”
Zhang Siyi: “…..” What does a girlfriend have to do with it? Isn’t it a natural thing to masturbate in the shower? Wait, it seems he has almost missed an important message: “… You have a girlfriend?”
Gu Yu interrupted: “Don’t jump the queue. You haven’t answered that question yet.”
“Which question?” Zhang Siyi’s train of thought retreated for a moment… Shit! That is also a question!
Gu Yu: “What are you thinking when you are doing…. Mmmm, Ahhh, NNnnn….” The sensuous, soft tones overflow gently from his nasal cavity, horse and seductive. “Come on, well, what is it?”
Zhang Siyi insides are screaming “fuck” and his skin is burning hot. Such a thing, how to say it. It’s what men know! ……! ……! “I choose a Dare!”
Gu Yu chuckled and leisurely reached out from the bed and used his finger to motion to Zhang Siyi.
Zhang Siyi squirmed in the bed and took off his shirt. He suddenly regretted opening this topic without a lower limit. Who would have thought that such a serious and stoic person at work, in secret became a person without integrity?
Taking the T-shirt and throwing it under the bed, Gu Yu teased: “So soon the second piece, three minus two, then you only have one pair of underwear left, hmm?”
Zhang Siyi shrank into the quilt and said, “Yeh. So?” Even if he was stripped, he still had a quilt.
Gu Yu lamented: “Gee, really no challenge huh.”
Zhang Siyi: “…”
Gu Yu calmly said: “First to answer your question just now, no.”
Zhang Siyi asked: “No girlfriend? Really? Then what is so different about your situation from mine?
Gu Yu interrupted: “You cut the line again. I answered the question so now it is time for me to ask.”
Zhang Siyi: “…” What?
Gu Yu smiled: “But for your poor sake, I’ll let you off the hook this time.”
Zhang Siyi thoughts can’t keep up with Gu Yu’s rhythm.
Gu Yu: “Because there is someone that I like.”
Zhang Siyi: “…” He has someone he likes? Since it is not a girlfriend, is it just an acquaintance? Based on his previous answers, maybe it’s someone more recent that he likes? Who?
…aah, aah, aah, fuck! Too many questions to ask!
“Okay, it’s my turn.” While smiling, Gu Yu particularly slowed down the speed of his speech, as if in a tense atmosphere and reminded Zhang Siyi: “If you can’t answer this question, you won’t be wearing clothes.”
Feeling an undisclosed threat, Zhang Siyi wiggled into the quilt deeper and pressed it around his body to tightly wrap himself up like a shield that would protect him from external forces.
Gu Yu slowly said: “Talk about the latest person who made you feel your heart move.”
Zhang Siyi: “………”
Gu Yu also explained kindly: “This heart-warming experience is not necessarily to like. It can just be a good feeling. Maybe it either was a feeling of rapid heartbeat or just a moment of attraction, like a beautiful stranger that smiles at you. It’s very common and I believe everyone has had this experience… Tell me what type of person that is and what the person was doing at the time when you felt your heart move.”
Zhang Siyi: “………..”
Zhang Siyi’s brain rumbled like a tsunami and landslide.
Each of his memories, like a movie clip in his mind, flashed by; today when Gu Yu was laughing in the kitchen; Gu Yu leaning against the car on the business trip and being called “Little Apprentice”; Gu Yu whispering in his ear when he ask to go home together; Gu Yu touching his head in the office; Gu Yu asking is he was alright during the game at the annual meeting…
… too much… too much… too much….
We will meet so many people in our lifetime and we may not love anyone in this life, but there are always many heart-warming moments. As Gu Yu said, it is not necessarily like, but it must be very common. Recently… Zhang Siyi desperately tried to find all the types of examples from his memory. Not just the last time, or two times, or even the last five times or ten times…… every heart-warming experience is due to Gu Yu! What is he going to say? He can’t say anything!
No matter which clip he picks, which scene, Gu Yu will know that he is talking about him. Feeling his anxiety rise, Zhang Siyi doesn’t want to answer! Alarmed, his subconscious mind can no longer cover up his thumping heart thereby completely exposing his previously denied feelings.
Oh. Shit. Did he like him? o////o
“Why aren’t you saying anything? Still don’t understand?” Gu Yu’s low voice came from the side, once again causing Zhang Siyi’s heart to beat erratically, and pulled his thoughts back to the immediate problem.
“Okay, if you think that the word ‘heart’ is too literary, it can be extended to ‘physiological impulses’. Anyway, most men who use the lower half of their body can never tell the difference between the two. Come on, tell me about the last time you….”
“Stop, Stop! I understand ‘ heart-warming’! ” Zhang Siyi interrupted him. Blushing deeply, remembering exactly the reasons, he dares not say anything.
“Oh? It seems like you have experienced it!” Gu Yu said, eager to know.
His stomach hurt: “I, I, I…” Zhang Siyi stuttered for a long time. “Dare… I choose a Dare.” (=_=)
“…..” Gu Yu was a little surprised. “You can’t say it? Now I’m curious. Is this an impulse towards something weird!?”
Zhang Siyi: “……” You fuck off!!”
Gu Yu teased with a smile: “Oh, you know what to do. Take it off yourself.”
Zhang Siyi is willing to concede. After all, he is inside the quilt. However, while taking his last piece of clothing off, he wonders, like the other pieces, if he has to hand his underwear to Gu Yu.
Fortunately, Gu Yu was not so perverted. He smiled and said: “You don’t have to give me your underwear. Just throw them on the bed over there.”
Zhang Siyi: “…” Shit! All gone! Good humiliation! (t_t) Shrinking down into the bedding, he angrily stated:” “It’s my turn to ask!”
Gu Yu said with a sigh: “You ask.”
Surging with jealousy, Zhang Siyi put his hand on his chest, pressed his crazy heart and urgently asked: “The person you like … Who is it?
Since the game has started, this is the first time Gu Yu is silent. The sudden change caused Zhang Siyi to turn his head to look at Gu Yu. Lying next to him in the dark, he saw Gu Yu’s profile and watched his eyelashes slowly open and close. In the next second, Gu Yu also turned his head to the side and looked deeply into Zhang Siyi eyes. Like an electric circuit finally being fixed, incomprehensible emotions flowed.
Feeling worried, Zhang Siyi started to fret over his question. Is Gu Yu unhappy about being asked this private issue? Was that too much? Hurriedly, he swore: “I promise I won’t tell.”
Gu Yu smiled and said: “I take a Dare.”
Zhang Siyi: “!!!”
What!? Why can’t you say whom you like? Our lives only intersect through work, so even if I know, there is no place to gossip… wait, wait, wait… But, if I did know, then it’s someone from the company…… Or, do you mean…. A faint memory tickled Zhang Siyi conscious. That day in KTV, after the annual meeting, when Fu Xinhui pointed out certain things..… What he mentioned…. The person Gu Yu likes is ….. o////o
No, no, no! You are only thinking like thus because your emotions are a mess. Zhang Siyi don’t be so pretentious!
Gu Yu raised his eyebrows and asked: “What do you want me to do? Also take off my clothes?”
“Uh… ah, ok.” Even though Zhang Siyi was the one who asked the question, his mind was preoccupied so he wasn’t paying attention at all.
Gu Yu easily took off his shirt and threw it on the floor. In a mischievous, naughty tone he said: “Let’s continue. It’s my turn.”
Expecting something troublesome, Zhang Siyi instinctively curled up into a protective ball, shivering under the covers, praying for Gu Yu to stop asking such private questions.
Gu Yu: “Are you still on your first night?”
Zhang Siyi: “Poof–!” First night? Shit, what a strange description of this! He’s not a woman!
Since there were no problems with answering, Zhang Siyi pretended to be calm and said: “If you are talking about the first type of intimacy, I have little experience.”
Gu Yu smirked and commented: “I can’t believe you are so innocent. I thought you liked to play at puppy-love. “
Zhang Siyi retorted: “Ah, what puppy-love? Being in love in college is normal. Besides, I feel that my relationship with my ex wasn’t very formal. At that time, I was abroad, and she was in China, so at most, it was dating. We wouldn’t see each other for long periods of time; very Plato…. I want to be responsible for that kind of thing. At least, I want to confirm that I will be together later. Ok?”
Gu Yu chuckled: “Platonic? There are no philosophy books that have been ‘Plato’. Children these days seems to play at being a family, but your attitude towards that kind of thing is serious and responsible. You didn’t develop bad habits from foreigners.”
Now, Zhang Siyi didn’t appreciate being educated by Gu Yu. He asked the same: “Well, I just said so what about you? Do you have a lot of experience? How many people have you been with?”
Gu Yu: “I have not been with anyone.”
Zhang Siyi was shocked: “What!?” – Gu Yu, this grass-roots level male god did not even talk about love?
Gu Yu sees the doubts in his eyes and straightforwardly said: “I don’t know what to do with love.”
Zhang Siyi: “Hey, didn’t you just say you had someone you liked?
Sighing softly, Gu Yu said: “It’s not hard to have one.” In a distressed tone which hinted at bitterness he continued: “But I have no experience and don’t know how to chase.”
Zhang Siyi: “…”
