When Lin An Lan came out of the shower, it was already dark and the wind was howling, whistling past the window with a noisy coldness, as if someone was throwing a temper tantrum.
He was just about to close the window when he heard a knock on the door.
The person at the door was knocking very sharply, as if in a hurry.
Lin An Lan went over to open the door, and to his surprise, it was Jiang Xu.
Jiang Xu looked at him, his eyes full of panic.
He was dressed in a very neat and tidy outfit, but it inexplicably gave Lin An Lan the impression that he was anxious and in dire straits.
Lin An Lan couldn’t help but wonder what was going on.
Moreover, they had just met last night, so according to reason, Jiang Xu shouldn’t have reappeared at this time.
Not waiting for him to say anything, Jiang Xu walked straight into the house.
Lin An Lan closed the door and asked him, “What’s wrong?”
Jiang Xu looked at him, hesitant to speak, his eyes full of confusion and sadness. Sitting down heavily on the sofa, he lowered his head, as if he didn’t know how to speak, and as if he didn’t know whether to speak or not.
Lin An Lan sat on the other side and seeing him remain silent, continued to drink his hot water quietly, not persuading him.
Jiang Xu sat quietly for a while, until Lin An Lan was about to persuade him to go home first when he finally opened his mouth with a shudder, ” Xiao Lan, she …… she came to see me.”
He looked at Lin An Lan, his eyes pleading and panicked, “She wants to see me, she ……”
Unable to go on, he looked at Lin An Lan, waiting for him to reassure him.
However, Lin An Lan had no idea what he was talking about and didn’t know who this ‘she’ was.
Holding the glass, he asked Jiang Xu, “Do you want to see her?”
“I don’t want to!” Jiang Xu raised his voice all of a sudden, as if trying to conceal his true thoughts, or perhaps thinking that if his voice was loud enough, his thoughts wouldn’t waver.
“Why would I want to see her? She was so determined when she left. She didn’t even give me a chance to say goodbye, so why would I want to see her?”
This situation …… Lin An Lan speculated secretly in his mind. Could it be Jiang Xu’s girlfriend?
Sigh, he blamed all this on losing his memory. He couldn’t remember if Jiang Xu had a girlfriend, and if so when, and if not, was it a boyfriend?
“Then don’t go.” Lin An Lan suggested, “If you don’t want to, then don’t go.”
Jiang Xu was inexplicably satisfied to hear him say that he shouldn’t go. He had come here just to say this, so that Lin An Lan would stop him in time.
Nodding, he whispered, “Yes, I won’t go, I promised you that I wouldn’t go.”
Lin An Lan was surprised. He had agreed just like that?
Looks like they’d had a bad breakup at the time.
He sat with Jiang Xu for a while and seeing that Jiang Xu seemed to be in a better state and wasn’t as miserable as when he had first entered, he prepared to send him off.
“It’s late, you should go home first, I’m going to bed in a while.”
Jiang Xu looked up in a daze, his eyes clear as he asked, “Can I stay with you tonight?”
“Of course not.” Lin An Lan didn’t hesitate.
Wouldn’t he just be making Cheng Yu upset if he stayed here?
“Just go back and don’t go see her.”
“Do you trust me that much?” Jiang Xu muttered.
“Of course.” Lin An Lan nodded, quite unconcerned.
When Jiang Xu heard him say this, he fell silent again.
“Get up.” Lin An Lan stood up, “I’ll walk you to the door.”
But Jiang Xu stayed glued to the couch, “I don’t want to go back.”
He told Lin An Lan, “I don’t want to leave. Xiao Lan, I want to be with you today, I want you to stay with me.”
Lin An Lan said helplessly, “It’s not convenient.”
“What’s so inconvenient about it?” Jiang Xu was aggrieved, “Didn’t you always accompany me at times like this before? Why is it inconvenient today?”
“I have work tomorrow.”
“I won’t disturb your work.” Jiang Xu promised.
“But I’m going to sleep in a while.”
“Then you can sleep, it’s not like we haven’t slept in the same bed before.”
Lin An Lan: ……
“Cheng Yu is coming later.”
When Jiang Xu heard Cheng Yu, it was as if a million scales had exploded.
“Tell him to get lost!”
“That’s not possible.” Lin An Lan was speechless. It would be better if you got lost.
Standing up, Jiang Xu walked over to him and grabbed him by the shoulders, “I don’t want to see him, I don’t want to see him at all tonight. Xiao Lan, tell him to go away, I don’t want him in my sight!”
“Aren’t you just being a nuisance?”
“How am I being a nuisance here!” Jiang looked at him sadly, his eyes full of grievance and pain, mixed with sadness, looking rather pitiful.
Lin An Lan simply didn’t know what to say, “Don’t be like this, you look as if I have done something wrong to you.”
Jiang Xu pursed his lips as he continued to look at him sadly.
Lin An Lan simply had a headache, “Can you go back first? Cheng Yu will be here soon. If you don’t want to see him, shouldn’t you leave now?”
“Why do I have to leave when he arrives! I’m the one who’s standing here now, so why isn’t he the one leaving?”
“He’s my boyfriend.”
“He’s not!” Jiang Xu said angrily, ” Xiao Lan, I’ve already made it very clear to you that he’s not.”
“Yes, yes, yes, he’s not, but don’t I have to play along with him here? How else can I go to his house?”
“You don’t have to go.” Jiang Xu said all of a sudden.
He looked at Lin An Lan, staring hard into his eyes, “You don’t have to go, I regret it.”
