        Xin Yi silently shredded tears, “Fang YiHe previously said that you were good, but changed today, how can he be as mean as Qi Fang.”

        They left the school’s gate, Zhou MuHui did not put it on the shotgun but on the backseat, and lightly carried him in.

        “Not mean.”

        Zhou MuHui closed the car’s door, squeezed with him in the camped car, his heart sour, “Everybody can feel afraid, he is also about the same age as you are, Xiao Yi, if you had a friend like me, I would also be worried.”

        “…You will be worried about me?”

        Xin Yi lifted his head, and did not focus on the main point.

        “Will.”

        Zhou MuHui earnestly nodded, held his face, and wiped his tears, “There is no one who wouldn’t worry.”

        “He is just well-intentioned.”

        Xin Yi blinked, pulled on his sleeve, and couldn’t resist but rub against him, then said in a small voice, “but you are not the same.”

        Zhou MuHui was silent, Xin Yi looked at him, and did not say anything else, after a while, he said in a whisper, “I will apologize to him.”

        Xin Yi’s voice was very low, said in a depressed manner, “My temper was too bad today, I shouldn’t have spoken to him in that way.”

        Fang YiHe was his best friend, Xin Yi knew that he was just anxious that’s why he said that, they were really mean, and said a lot of things they are not supposed to say.

        “But I will carefully explain it to him, and tell him not to talk like that to you.”

        Talking about that, he was a bit indignant, and mumbled, “He clearly knows about your matter.”

        Zhou MuHui paused, caressed his head, sighed, “It doesn’t matter.”

        Zhou MuHui asked for a day off for both of them, and stayed at home with him for the whole day, Xin Yi woke up in the evening and was a bit dazed, hugging the cat in his arms, he sat on the bed for a while then remembered what he had forgotten.

        The bedroom was empty, Zhou MuHui should be working in the study, Xin Yi scratched his head, took out his handphone with some apprehension, and called Fang YiHe.

        The call was picked up very quickly, but nobody spoke for a moment, Xi Yi hugged the cat and called out, after he heard the other party breathing calmly, then did he speak out, “Fang YiHe?”

        “En.”

        Fang YiHe answered with a muffled voice, he did not wait for him to speak, then opened his mouth, “Sorry, Xin Yi, I shouldn’t have spoken like this morning.”

        “You are right, I shouldn’t carelessly speculate about him, I obviously don’t know him, I shouldn’t be this subjective, it’s my fault.”

        Xin Yi was stunned, only nodded after a long moment, and said, “It’s fine.”

        “I am calling to apologize too… Fang YiHe, sorry, I went overboard today, I hope you can forgive me.”

        The other party was silent for a moment, then a dull voice could be heard, “Oh, it’s also fine.”

        The two of them were stiff for a while, the cat in Xin Yi’s arms mewed, and helped them to break the ice.

        “I’ve never seen you like this, I was scared to death.” Fang YiHe let out a breath in relief.

        His little brother from the old days showed off his courage, the soft and waxy little cat has changed into a mighty big lion.

        “…It’s my temper that was too big.” Xin Yi touched his nose, awkwardly admitted it, and said, “but in the future, you can’t talk like this about him, or else I would be very angry.”

        “I don’t want him to hear these things, if you have any queries, you can ask me personally.” 

        Fang YiHe let out a hum, and sighed, “Xin Yi, you really scared me to death.”

        Not only his partner was a man, and to one’s surprise, had such an identity.

        Xin Yi let out a laugh in embarrassment, said, “He is actually very good, not scary at all.”

        “Furthermore…” Xin Yi paused for a while, and said in a small voice, “It wasn’t his fault, he shouldn’t have gone to jail.”

        Fang YiHe could hear his meaning, and also paused for a while.

        “The boundary between legitimate defense and overkill has always been vague, not to mention the situation back then, Xin Yi, we’ve all seen the court hearing.

        He said in a low voice, “A lot of matters don’t feel reasonable once when we encounter them, Xin Yi, but they indeed happened.”

        “…”

        “I know…”

        Xin Yi lowered his head, his voice hoarse.

        It is because he knew it, that’s why he felt powerless.

        “There’s a lot of time, I just want…want to go back to the past.”

        To when Zhou MuHui was still a teenager, to find him, to drive away the bad people around him, become robust, then more robust, and stay by his side to protect him well, and not let him get hurt again.

        So these things in the future wouldn’t have happened. 

        “But you are already very good.” Fang YiHe softened his voice, and comforted him, “Xin Yi, you did better than any of us.”

        Before hanging up, Fang YiHe said to him, “Xin Yi, you are really great.”

        “I actually never seen him, it’s only because I was curious that I pulled you with me to watch the video of the court hearing, I know…that later, maybe other people will also recognize him, maybe they will be stupid just like me, and say things that will hurt you, but you…”

        “But you don’t have to care…” Fang YiHe paused, and said softly, “Xin Yi, you guys are very brave, don’t mind others, is that alright.” 

        Xin Yi’s eyes were a bit itchy as if a lash fell in his eye, he rubbed it, but the lash didn’t get out, his eye felt more and more uncomfortable until a drop of tear fell out.

        “Alright.”

        “Xin Yi looked at the drop of water that fell on his handphone, and nodded very seriously.”

        “I will be able to do that.”

        His tone must be a little odd, because even the cat in his arms lifted his head and gave him a strange look.

        “Thank you, Fang YiHe.”

        He said with a breathy voice.

        There seemed to be a slight movement at the door, the cat’s ears twitched but didn’t turn his head, so Xin Yi was still hugging him.

        “I’m hanging up!” Xin Yi buried his head in his body (cat), and said with a stuffy voice, “I slept for a long time, I have to get out of bed.”

        Fang YiHe just hummed, and nodded, “Then see you tomorrow!”

        Xin Yi carelessly said ok, even after a du-du-du sound came from the phone, he still maintained the same posture and did not lift his head. 

Notes:

小意 stands for Little Yi*, ‘little’ is used as a prefix in front of a name to indicate affection or informality. Referring to chapter 1, ZMH came to his school along with Qi Fang for an event. I am not sure what ZMH meant to say here, what he said can also mean “we are it” and maybe the “it” means that people can just label them as whatever they want (?)
