“You shouldn’t hate him, you should hate your father, it wasn’t Cheng Yu who made him not want you, it was your father who doesn’t want you.”
“Cheng Yu is a victim too.”
“He is a victim and I’m not?” Jiang Xu asked, pointing to himself, “He is at least the rightful young master of the Cheng family, the son of Cheng Feng, but what about me? Whose son am I? Whose child am I?! If he is injured, he can go to Cheng Feng, who will take care of it for him, but what about me? Who can I go to? I have no one but you!”
“What….. what about your mother?” Lin An Lan asked unconsciously.
Jiang Xu froze for a moment as he seemed to have heard something shocking and hard to believe, ” Xiao Lan, what did you ask me?”
Lin An Lan didn’t say anything.
Jiang Xu moved closer to him and looked at him seriously, then staring at him closely, asked him word for word, “What, did you just ask me?”
Lin An Lan didn’t dare to ask again, he was vaguely aware that the words he had just said unconsciously seemed to be the one question he shouldn’t have asked.
There was a moment of silence.
Jiang Xu asked, as if he was feeling him out, “Xiao Lan, what is the name of the woman I told you about the moment I walked in through the door?”
Lin An Lan:……
Lin An Lan was thinking about how to muddle his way through the question when he heard a knock on the door. Rushing over, he opened the door as quickly as he could.
It was Cheng Yu.
When Cheng Yu saw that his expression didn’t look good, he asked him, “What’s wrong?”
Lin An Lan looked inside without a word, and Cheng Yu, following his gaze, saw Jiang Xu looking at him angrily.
Without a trace of surprise, he walked in, closed the door and said calmly, “Why are you here again?”
“It’s none of your business.”
Finished saying this, he looked straight at Lin An Lan, “Xiao Lan, you still haven’t answered the question I just asked?”
“You’re so annoying.” Lin An Lan digressed, “Why aren’t you leaving yet? It’s time for you to go.”
“There’s no rush, I’ll go after you tell me the answer.”
“Are you threatening me?” Lin An Lan asked back, “You won’t leave until I tell you?”
“Of course not, I just want to know the answer.”
“And what if I prefer not to tell?” He said deliberately, “I hate it when people talk to me like that.”
Cheng Yu didn’t know what Jiang Xu had asked, but it was clear that Lin An Lan didn’t want to answer.
He pulled Lin An Lan to sit beside him and said to Jiang Xu, “Go back, it’s late. Or could it be that you want to stay here all night?”
“Why not?” Jiang Xu sat down opposite him, “If you can, why can’t I?”
“Of course you can.” Cheng Yu smiled, “If you insist on staying here, then I’ll take An An to my room.”
He continued, “You won’t also want to go to my room too, right?”
“Who cares about your room!”
“That’s why it’s time for you to go back.”
Jiang Xu looked at him with cynicism in his eyes, but more than that, he was curious about Lin An Lan’s current situation and why he had asked him that question just now.
He looked directly at Lin An Lan, who wasn’t far away and who had turned his head away, not wanting to meet his gaze.
In a rare moment of composure, Jiang Xu thought about what had happened recently. He had a feeling that Lin An Lan wasn’t the same as before.
It was just……
He couldn’t help but look at Lin An Lan again, – he didn’t want to go back.
He was afraid that he wouldn’t be able to resist, but he was even more afraid of being alone. He wanted Lin An Lan to keep him company, he wanted him to watch him, he wanted Lin An Lan to stop him.
But now Lin An Lan was ignoring him, not to mention accompanying him.
“Xiao Lan, are you really not willing to keep me company?”
“I’m not willing.”
Jiang Xu laughed bitterly, “You would have been willing before.”
Lin An Lan was afraid of saying more, for fear of arousing his suspicion.
Cheng Yu urged, “It you’ve finished, you can leave.”
Standing up, Jiang Xu took one last look at Lin An Lan then walked out, feeling abandoned.
Lin An Lan was relieved to see him go, “He seems to be a bit suspicious of me?”
Cheng Yu was surprised, “What happened?”
“Before you came back, we argued for a while. I was inattentive and asked him ‘what about your mother?’, but I shouldn’t have asked this question. We grew up together, so I should definitely know about the situation with his mother, but I was too surprised at that time and in the heat of the moment, I asked. Later, I wanted to remedy the mistake I had made, but there was nothing I could do about it.”
Cheng Yu listened quietly, and after a moment of silence, advised him, “It’s okay, paper can’t cover fire. He would have found out one day. As long as you don’t believe his nonsense, then it’s okay.”
Lin An Lan swore, “Of course I won’t believe it, I only believe in me and you.”
Cheng Yu nodded and hugged him tenderly.
He hugged him tightly, and in a place where Lin An Lan couldn’t see, his eyes were as dark as the sea.
This day had to come after all, but it didn’t matter, Cheng Yu thought to himself. He had already earned so many days, so for the rest of his life, if he could earn a day per day, then he would do it.
He had already prepared for it, so he could take it.
Outside the window, the wind blew hard, rattling the leaves on the trees and as Cheng Yu kissed Lin An Lan, he sensed the calm before the storm.
