“…don’t do that next time.”
The man was startled, but he still taught him, “It’s dangerous when driving.”
Xin Yi isn’t little, but Zhou MuHui always felt like he was a little kid that hasn’t grown up, chirping and revolving around him every day, even when he bumped himself he wouldn’t cry out of pain, only rubbing on his wounds and smiling foolishly.
It was also the same when he asked for love, he didn’t care about anything else, he would throw his heart to Zhou MuHui, forcing Zhou MuHui’s eyes to stop over and be different from his usual self.
Xin Yi stammeringly nodded, and hurriedly let go of Zhou MuHui’s clothes, his pair of hands resting on his knees, sat obediently.
He also knew he was in the wrong after giving that kiss, but at that moment, he also didn’t know what happened, it was just like he was captivated, he was looking at Zhou MuHui and just wanted to move closer to him.
There are a lot of traffic lights near the school, at the next intersection, Zhou MuHui paused, out of the corner of his eyes he could see that Xin Yi kept his head lowered.
On the slightly exposed profile of the young man, the smooth and round cheek was bulged up, Zhou MuHui frowned, quite hesitantly retracting his sight.
Is it because he wasn’t happy?
The man’s hands that were gripping the steering wheel stiffened, he thought in his heart, was it because the tone he used was a bit too serious and a bit too rigid, and it made the little kid unhappy that he didn’t speak on the rest of the way.
When Xin Yi was about to get off the car, Zhou MuHui called him, Xin Yi confusedly turned around, climbed over the co-pilot, asked in a whisper, “What’s wrong?”
Zhou MuHui looked at his confused face, a strange taste of sourness surged up in his heart, he lowered his voice and said, “Nothing.”
But in the next second, he pressed down the back of his neck, their lips met, and he kissed him.
Xin Yi was muddled head for the whole while, till the man retreated from his mouth, he then abruptly pulled back, knelt on the seat, and looked at Zhou MuHui with his eyes wide open.
“(compared) with yours, which one is better?”
Zhou MuHui asked him.
Xin Yi’s ears tips turned red, he looked serious, yet also looked like the usual Zhou MuHui who would ask him questions, stammered and said, “this, this one…”
Zhou MuHui made a sound in acquiescence and said, “Understood.”
This time, even Xin Yi’s face turned red, not sure what mean the understood he was referring to, and what he wanted to do.
“Do you want me to accompany you?”
The car was parked in front of the school’s entrance, Zhou MuHui tilted his head to look at his family’s little friend who was still embarrassed.
“No need no need.”
Xin Yi promptly shook his head in refusal, gripped his backpack, and moved back, “I am going by my own.”
And didn’t even react to the fact that Zhou MuHui wanted to accompany him inside unlike usual.
Zhou MuHui watched him walk to the entrance and only then, did he retract his sight, he sat there unmoving, raised his hand after a while, and touched his own lips that were still warm and wet, lowered his head, and smiled.
Xin Yi dizzily walked towards the teaching buildings, then only got the notice that there was no need to come to class today, the person that had come was his friend, put an arm around his shoulders and handed him his phone.
“You left too quickly yesterday and did not even take your phone, I guessed that you would also come today, so I brought it.”
Xin Yi smiled in embarrassment, he was too muddled head yesterday, so he has forgotten everything.”
He thanked the other party, but the other party waved his hand, and moved closer to him harboring bad intentions.
“Xin Yi! Why are your lips so red?”
He gave him a surreptitious wink, Xin Yi whole body was about to burn up, he thought about that wet and warm kiss back then, pushed the other party in a flustered manner, and stammeringly said, “got, got bitten by an insect.”
“Oh—— that insect sure was powerful.”
“… Fang YiHe!”
Xin Yi was bashful after being told off by him, and shouted at him in false bravado.
Fang YiHe was his best friend, at this time, couldn’t resist and pinched his face.
“And you think you’re in the right, you’re secretly in a relationship and haven’t even told me!”
Xin Yi’s character is gentle, and also younger than him, Fang YiHe usually treated him like a kid, now, seeing that he is in a relationship, he felt both happy and grieved.
It was like, he raised with difficulty a pig, and his memory was still stopped at the moment when this pig was still little, but as a result, it actually ventured to someone else’s yard and dug someone else’s cabbage.2
Xin Yi felt sorry, but he also didn’t dare to talk about it.
Zhou MuHui’s identity was peculiar, and it happens that Fang YiHe was someone who knew a bit about his matters, if Xin Yi really talked about him, Fang YiHe surely would be the first one to know who Zhou MuHui was.
“Alright, alright, let’s not talk about it.”
Fang YiHe glared at him, “A son who has married is like water that has been spilled3, be good to the young girl ok.”
Xin Yi hurriedly nodded, then reacted in the next second.
“It’s not a youn-…….”
“Didn’t I say it already, there is no class today, you can also hurry to leave!”
He left just as fast as he came, didn’t wait for Xin Yi’s words, he hastily waved his hand at him, “I am going back to play games, bye-bye!”
He left too quickly, leaving a Xin Yi looking at him at a loss, after a while, Xin Yi blinked,
“It’s not a young girl…”
He said in a muffle.
He actually said “…我也, 我也没什么.” which is literally “… I also, I also have nothing”, he was referring to ZMH’s “nothing” he meant to say that there was also nothing (to add/say/wrong) for him too.
It is easier to understand in Chinese but it doesn’t make much sense in English. It’s the reverse of a very commonly used expression, people usually say that the cabbage they planted has been dug out by a pig. Originally the idiom is “嫁出去的女儿，泼出去的水” – “A daughter that has married is like water that has been spilled” meaning it is a waste.
Because in traditional Chinese culture, the daughter marries off to her husband’s family, thus, would only benefit others.
