Assistant Architect by Xi He Qing Ling
Chapter 88 Extra: [Small Theater] 002: First Love article – Gu Yu
Gu Yu drove to Zhang Siyi’s house to pick him up. Even though he experienced the family’s hospitality previously, when Mother Zhang saw Gu Yao, her changed attitude wasn’t a surprise. To himself, Mother Zhang is polite and regarded him as an excellent young man or her son’s Boss. But for his sister, she treated Gu Yao with obvious affection. After all, Mother Zhang give her a piece of jewelry as one might do when treating a girl as a potential daughter.
This is the reality of society. Any elders expect their children to become married as soon as possible. Men with women and women with men, but no parent expects their child to appear with a same-sex partner.
Even if his pursuit of Zhang Siyi was successful, he didn’t know how much pressure it would bring to his family and how much pressure Zhang Siyi could endure. Thinking of the future, Gu Yu felt very sorry for himself. Since Zhang Siyi was able to have a normal relationship with women, he thought, should he just let Zhang Siyi go?
And go your own way by yourself……
Anyway, after so many years, he was used to being alone…….
Driving the car from the garage to pick them up, he saw Zhang Siyi and Gu Yao chatting very happily. As much as he didn’t want to admit it, they got along very well. He increasingly felt more tormented and jealous.
In his anger, he thought if they really did like each other then he should let them be together. A proper brother would wish them a lifetime of happiness.……
At the rest stop, while the other two people were still inside, Gu Yu was leaning on the side of the car and viewing the mountains deep in thought. He felt that everything in this world was obscured and revolving without a purpose. He felt desolate and lonely.
When Gu Yu looked over at the service building, he immediately noticed Zhang Siyi figure walking calmly back to the car. He stared at the man approaching him. His handsome facial features, the wave in his hair… every action and every expression are so vivid.
With each step that Zhang Siyi took, Gu Yu felt his world became brighter. Zhang Siyi presence eliminated the fog that Gu Yu saw and gave him purpose.
He was just an ordinary boy with few advantages and many shortcomings. He was careless, could easily be confused, and lacked perseverance……. But…… he likes him.
Admit it, Gu Yu. You are just a mortal.
You have your desires.
Even if there is an abyss in front of you, you can’t let go!
