Chapter 4

After hearing Qin Zhongyue’s words, Xie Zhongxing calmly gave his thanks, “Thank you.”

Li Jun tugged Qin Zhongyue’s arm, “Let’s go.
The plane is at ten.
We can still sleep a little in the car.”

Qin Zhongyue looked at Xie Zhongxing, his eyes containing reluctance that he himself didn’t even notice.
Without looking at Li Jun, he rubbed the back of his neck and asked despite already knowing, “Are you a student from Nanyang?”

Xie Zhongxing raised his eyes slightly and lightly confirmed it.

Qin Zhongyue then asked, “Third year?”

Xie Zhongxing looked at him and gently nodded.

Qin Zhongyue took in his well-behaved appearance and felt his heart tremble.
He swallowed nervously a few times and then took out his phone somewhat anxiously, “Save my number? If anything happens, you can call me.”

Xie Zhongxing’s eyes revealed a trace of doubt.
To him, Qin Zhongyue was just a stranger, but this stranger’s attitude towards him was very strange.

Xie Zhongxing paused, “I don’t have a phone.”

Li Jun who was next to him let out a snort of laughter.
In his opinion, that was basically a form of rejection.
Who in this time and age wouldn’t have a phone?

Qin Zhongyue sent Li Jun a glare.
He immediately stored away his phone and turned to look at the hotel manager, “Please bring me a pen and paper, thank you.”

The manager immediately left and returned with a pen and paper for Qin Zhongyue.

Qin Zhongyue quickly wrote down his number and gave it to Xie Zhongxing.
His eyes flickered slightly, “This is my number.
I will answer it no matter when you call.”

Under everyone’s watch, Xie Zhongxing hesitated for a moment before reaching over to accept the piece of paper.

Qin Zhongyue breathed a sigh of relief.
His expression then changed and he glared at the two underlings, “You two better keep to yourselves.
If I ever find out that you are bullying him, I will make it so that you can’t live in A City anymore!”

Li Jun next to him continued to laugh.
Qin Zhongyue raised his foot and stepped on him resulting in Li Chun’s subsequent wail, “Qin Zhongyue you fucker! This is a limited-edition shoe! Only twenty pairs in the world! You ruined it by stepping on it!”

Qin Zhongyue turned around, “Let’s go!”

Li Jun angrily kicked the back of his knee.
Qin Zhongyue suddenly came to a stop and turned back to look at Xie Zhongxing, “Only call me if you anything happens.
If there’s nothing…..if there’s nothing, don’t call.
I’m very busy.”

Xie Zhongxing nodded.

Qin Zhongyue’s gaze travelled across his fair and handsome face.
His heart seemed to be filled with bubbles; light and a little itchy.
He cleared his throat, turned his head and threw out a quick, “Goodbye.”

As if he was running away from something, he hurried over to a luxury car and got in.

The two boys next to Xie Zhongxing whispered to each other, “Can you recognise what kind of car that is?”

“There is a car emblem at the front.
We’ll know once we search it up.”

As he said that, he actually took out his phone to search, “Fuck, it’s Lamborghini! Let me check the price of this one ——- More than nine million?!” (KKnotes: Approx 1.4mil USD)

“No way…….More than nine million for a car?”

“There are only five of this model released worldwide, and it is also a limited edition…….”

The two boys both stopped talking and looked at Xie Zhongxing.
They cautiously spoke up, “Brother Xie, you’re really amazing.
You actually know someone so rich!”

Xie Zhongxing watched the car drive away and didn’t speak.

One of the boys scratched his cheek and whispered, “We were only doing what Brother Fu asked us to do, we actually don’t have anything against you.
If Brother Fu asks us to do anything in the future, we will definitely let you know.”

The other boy immediately nodded.
He raised his fingers and swore, “I am completely loyal to Brother Xie now!”

Xie Zhongxing didn’t show any response to this.
He crumpled the piece of paper with Qin Zhongyue’s number into a ball and stuffed it into his pocket.

Qin Zhongyue on the other end continued to press his face against the car window, staring reluctantly at Xie Zhongxing.

When he saw Xie Zhongxing put his number into his pocket, the corners of his lips couldn’t help but rise.

Li Jun sitting next to him saw this silly expression of his and asked, “You really know him?”

Qin Zhongyue responded impatiently, “Yes.”

Li Jun carefully looked at his face, “Your face is red ——- Hey, something about you isn’t right.”

Qin Zhongyue finally looked away from Xie Zhongxing.
He was slightly annoyed, “What about me isn’t right?”

Li Jun shook his head, “In any case, you just don’t seem right.”

Qin Zhongyue sat up straight, “Don’t overthink it.
I just couldn’t stand seeing him being bullied.”

That line was also directed at himself.
Even if he didn’t want to have any relationship with Xie Zhongxing, Xie Zhongxing was in any case once his wife so he should at least look out for him ——- How could he let others bully his wife?

Li Jun fastened his seatbelt and leaned back, “Alright then.
I need to catch up on sleep, don’t disturb me.”

Qin Zhongyue absentmindedly responded before his thoughts started drifting.
Would Xie Zhongxing call him? When would he call? What kind of tone should he use to talk to him when he does?

When that time really comes, he should be a little colder towards Xie Zhongxing.
If he is too gentle and Xie Zhongxing falls for him and wants to marry him, what should he do then?

Qin Zhongyue himself believes that he is a pretty good catch.
If he accidentally steals the young Xie Zhongxing’s heart, that wouldn’t be good.

Thinking this, he decided to act cold and distant towards Xie Zhongxing.
Xie Zhongxing however didn’t call him even after several days had passed.

Qin Zhongyue who would inadvertently stare at his phone from time to time: “…………”

Why isn’t he calling me???


Xie Zhongxing naturally didn’t pay too much attention to what Qin Zhongyue had said and even the piece of paper with Qin Zhongyue’s number had disappeared in who knows which book of his.

Since returning from Fu Donglin’s birthday party, Xie Zhongxing’s life hadn’t been very smooth.

Probably because his plan didn’t work out, Fu Donglin found him more and more unpleasant, and his actions had consequently become more and more excessive.

For example, right now, Xie Zhongxing reached out and touched his bedding.
Sure enough, it was soaked.

When Zhong Yiming entered the room and saw him standing motionlessly by his bed, he came over.
He was taken aback when he saw the dark wet mark on the blue bedsheet, “How did it get wet?”

Xie Zhongxing didn’t speak.

Zhong Yiming however had some guesses.
He immediately turned and questioned Fu Donglin who was playing games on his bed, “Fu Donglin, did you do this?”

Fu Donglin denied it, “With what eyes did you use to see me do that? Don’t accuse others when you have no evidence.”

Zhong Yiming was a little angry, “Apart from you in this dormitory, who else would target Xie Zhongxing?”

Fu Donglin countered, “Why aren’t you saying anything about Zhao Zhao that sissy? You’re just so certain it’s me?”

Zhong Yiming still had things he wanted to say but Xie Zhongxing stopped him and shook his head.

Zhong Yiming’s face was a little red, “Let’s change rooms.
I’ll go talk to the dormitory head.”

Fu Donglin was a little pleased, “I’m not changing.
I like staying in this room.”

He enjoyed being able to make Xie Zhongxing disgusted.

Zhong Yiming took in his triumphant expression and couldn’t help but grind his teeth.
He gave Xie Zhongxing a reassuring look and whispered, “I’ll go talk to the dormitory head.”

Once he was done saying that, he left.

Fu Donglin got out of bed and leisurely followed after him, “I’m also going to tell the dormitory head that I’m not changing rooms.”

Once he was gone, a boy from the room next to theirs looked in.
He cautiously called out to Xie Zhongxing, “Brother Xie, I have something to tell you.”

That boy was one of Fu Donglin’s underlings who had tried to bring Xie Zhongxing back to school a few days ago.
His name was Qiu Yi.

Xie Zhongxing only paused for a moment before following Qiu Yi out.

Qiu Yi found a remote stairwell and waved Xie Zhongxing over before sticking his head out and checking the surroundings.
Only after he had confirmed that no one was coming did he lower his voice and secretly reveal, “Brother Xie, in fact, I’ve long been uncomfortable around Fu Donglin so don’t worry, I’m on your side!”

Xie Zhongxing asked calmly, “What did you want to tell me?”

Qiu Yi: “It’s like this.
Brother Fu came up with a new trick to deal with you.”

As he said that, he dug out his phone and gave it to Xie Zhongxing.

Xie Zhongxing received it.
When his gaze fell onto the screen, he saw that it was a group chat interface.

Xie Zhongxing’s eyes hardened.
The hand holding the phone tightened.

He slowly scrolled down and carefully read the chat.

Someone in the group asked, “Since Brother Fu hates Xie Zhongxing so much, why don’t you change his room? With your uncle’s position in this school, it shouldn’t be too difficult?”

Fu Donglin replied, “You understand nothing.
I just want to follow him around and disgust him.”

“The other party is a study tyrant.
He probably thinks nothing of you.”

Fu Donglin sent a string of “……….”.

Another person said, “Seeing that Zhong Yiming is always speaking up for Xie Zhongxing and Xie Zhongxing isn’t close to anyone but Zhong Yiming, there might actually be something fishy going on between them.”

Fu Donglin asked, “What’s fishy?”

“You know, fwb.” (KKnotes: Friends with benefits)

“What do you mean.
Tell me clearly.”

“You know, homosexuality.”

That word shook up Fu Donglin’s three views, “WTF?!”

That person said, “Brother Fu may not know but society these days are a mess.
Some men like men and like to do it with men.
It’s possible that they’re actually in this kind of relationship.”

Fu Donglin sent a vomiting emoticon, “Disgusting! There are really people who do this?”

That person said, “It’s true.
At my previous school, there was a gay who wrote a confession letter to their male classmate and it was later posted onto the bulletin board, creating a huge ruckus.
In the end, that guy’s reputation was tarnished and he finally voluntarily dropped out of school.”

“If Brother Fu really hates him, making him drop out shouldn’t be too difficult?”

Fu Donglin seemed to be moved by that suggestion, “But that Zhong Yiming guy is also pretty rich.
He cannot be trifled with.”

“What’s difficult about that? The law doesn’t punish numerous offenders.
As long as you take a few of their intimate shots, post it up onto the forums and write a few things, wouldn’t their reputation be tarnished?”

Fu Donglin said, “Good idea.
At that time, you guys help stir the pot in the forums as well.
Don’t make up stories that sound too fake.
That pauper doesn’t have a phone, so he won’t know about it until it gets too big to deal with.”


Xie Zhongxing returned the phone to Qiu Yi, his chest rising and falling heavily.

Qiu Yi peeked at his expression and said in a small voice, “I really couldn’t stand his evil plans.
With your good grades, you shouldn’t have any interactions with him.
I don’t know why he keeps targeting you.”

Xie Zhongxing spoke calmly, “Thank you for telling me, but I have to clarify one thing.
I don’t know that person.”

Qiu Yi laughed, “I didn’t become a spy because of that Lamborghini, I just couldn’t stand Fu Donglin’s wicked tricks.
Although my grades aren’t good, I have always admired study tyrants like you.”

He continued, “Brother Fu made your bed wet because he wanted to force you to sleep with Zhong Yiming and use that chance to take intimate photos of you two to share in the forums.
You should be careful.”

Xie Zhongxing nodded, “I understand.
Thank you.”

Back in the dormitory, Zhong Yiming and Fu Donglin had both returned.
Zhong Yiming’s expression was gloomy while Fu Donglin’s was contrarily very smug.
Seeing their expressions, Xie Zhongxing could guess the outcome.

Sure enough, Zhong Yiming apologised to Xie Zhongxing, “Sorry, the dormitory head didn’t allow the rooms to be changed.”

Xie Zhongxing nodded, “It’s okay.”

His eyes landed on Fu Donglin as he continued to speak to Zhong Yiming, “Close the door.”

Zhong Yiming hesitated for a moment before reaching out to close the door.

Xie Zhongxing clenched his fist, his knuckles cracking.
Alongside that sound, he looked at Fu Donglin and asked, “Do you want to hit me?”

The smug smile Fu Donglin’s face faded, “What do you mean?”

Xie Zhongxing nodded, “I understand.”

As soon as he finished saying that, Xie Zhongxing did something extremely shocking.
He threw out a punch at Fu Donglin.
