n Yi spoke, carefully hiding his sadness and tears behind these words.

        Because you bullied me, did not say you love me, and even put at home a divorce agreement paper that made me scared…

        You even want to leave me.

        “Did not— —” Zhou MuHui grasped his hand, and swallowed the rest of his words, “Then is it too late if I change now?”

        He said that so seriously that Xin Yi almost took it seriously.

        Xin Yi thought, he never gets Zhou MuHui, before that he did not get what he was thinking, and now he did not get what he wanted to do.

        Just like the fact that he wanted to divorce Xin Yi, but now he wanted to reconcile with him, even send him to school, and said that he was his boyfriend.

        Moreover… he also didn’t want to say he likes, did not want to say he loves him.

        Obviously, when Xin Yi pestered him before, he did say it, but these last days Xin Yi thought about it carefully, between them, it has been a long time since they’ve said it.

        Does Zhou MuHui still like him, still love him?

        Xin Yi did not dare to ask.

        “Xiao Yi.”

        Zhou MuHui called him again.

        Xin Yi’s nose twitched, and made a sound in acquiescence, he took over the towel in Zhou MuHui’s hands, covered his own face, and nodded randomly.

        “Alright.”

        He said and did his best to hide his hurt.

        “Then… let’s reconcile.”

        In the end, he did not ask the question that was hidden in his heart, because he was afraid that the reply he would obtain would be different from what he expected, he was afraid of Zhou MuHui’s….acts that Xin Yi couldn’t understand, was even willing to spend time and energy that he was willing to do before in order to accompany Xin Yi’s activities.

        It was only the compensation that Zhou MuHui was giving him.

        That’s why he would let it go first, and let him have a brief time to heal his wounds, if it’s until when he is better, or until he has a bit more courage, wait until he can accept any outcome from Zhou MuHui, then Xin Yi would ask him.

        Zhou MuHui breathed a sigh of relief and lowered his head to kiss him.

        “What did you just want to ask?”

        Xin Yi shook his head.

        “Nothing, just want to ask you when the food is going to be ready.”

        He used the towel to wipe his tears, looked up and hugged Zhou MuHui.

        Before Xin Yi fell asleep, he told Zhou MuHui that he already apologized to Fang YiHe.

        “But he knows that he was wrong, told me to apologize to you, and hope that you can forgive him.”

        Zhou MuHui was stunned, and caressed his head, “It’s nothing.”

        When he went to wake Xin Yi up, he accidentally heard their conversation.

        Xin Yi said nothing, buried in his embrace but the hand that was holding the hem of his clothes gripped it so tightly that it turned white.

        “I know, but I don’t want you to be unhappy.”

        His voice was very small, but very serious, as if even a normal apology could hurt Zhou MuHui.

        Zhou MuHui lowered his head, looked at the small part of his head that was protruding, and called him in a whisper, “Xiao Yi.”

        The timid quail that was cuddling in his embrace finally lifted his head, and used a pair of moist eyes to look at Zhou MuHui.

        “What’s wrong?”

        “All these matters aren’t important.” Zhou MuHui turned around, and lowered his forehead to lean on his, “Xiao Yi, you know that, don’t you.”

        “I won’t be influenced by those things.” He kissed Xin Yi’s ears which were still red and puffy.

        “…”

        Xin was lying under him and said nothing even after half a day, only stretching his hands after a while and tightly hugging Zho MuHui, and nodding hard.

        “I know, I know…” 

        “Zhou MuHui, you are very very brave.” Xin Yi lifted his head and kissed him, “You protected aunty, you’re very great.”

        There were often people who would wonder why Zhou MuHui would be together with Xin Yi, they looked vastly different, no matter if it was their age or their identities, no matter how one looked at it they were not the most perfect pair.

        Not to mention that Xin Yi was much younger than him.

        Even when the two of them started to be in a relationship, it looked like they were playing house, as if Xin Yi was just a kid making a fuss, saying that he wanted to be together with him, then Zhou MuHui, under people’s strange glance, silently nodded. 

        They were never thought highly of, for so many years, only Xin Yi relentlessly said he loved him, said that Zhou MuHui was great, just like a small beast protecting his calf, standing in front of him to block any violent storm and gale-driven rain from him. 

        From seventeen years old to twenty-two years old, it has never changed. 

        “En.”

        Zhou MuHui gently looked at him, then grabbed the back of his neck and pressed him into his embrace, and switched off the light behind.
“It’s late.” He said, “Sleep.”
