Shi Yu had vaguely conceded things from Jiang ChengLi that night. He only knew that if he continued, Jiang ChengLi would make many more inexplicable requests and he wouldn’t have any choice but to agree.
He never had any good means to deal with Jiang ChengLi. Fortunately, Jiang ChengLi was a man who kept his promises. When he said he wouldn’t bother, he hadn’t bothered.
Shi Yu was a little uncomfortable at first, and wanted to ask Jiang ChengLi several times about the status of the little ice dragon, but hesitated to send the message.
It was his request not to be disturbed.
Shi Yu could only numb himself with a few more sets of questions when he was upset. When he came back to his senses, his sophomore year was already over.
The day before summer vacation, Lian Jing watched as Shi Yu packed his bag and curiously plopped down on his chair. “Shi Yu, why do you think the summer vacation for sophomore year is only ten days?”
Shi Yu hadn’t even looked up. “Because it’s the last summer vacation of your high school career.”
“Oh, that’s true.” Lian Jing rubbed his eyes. “I heard that the second half of the year is over in a blink of an eye.”
“Next year will be easy after that.”
“So do you have any plans for this summer?”
Shi Yu’s hands moved slightly. “Not at the moment.”
“We’re going to the beach in three days as a last hurrah. Do you want to go?” Lian Jing folded his hands in front of his chest. He was full of expectation. “Together with my good gege?”
Shi Yu was a little tempted, but when he saw how Lian Jing painstakingly begged him, it looked a little funny. “I still have questions. Not finished.”
“Gege, you have been the Omega Class’s first for so long, and still don’t relax yourself. I’m worried for you!” Lian Jing carefully tugged Shi Yu’s finger, and said pitifully, “Go on, good gege–“
Shi Yu pressed the corner of his lips. “Okay.”
Lian Jing happily gestured victory. Shi Yu smiled and rubbed the top of his hair. After he left, Lian Jing fished out his phone and sent a message to Li Chen.
Shi Yu dragged his suitcase to the high-speed railway station on the morning of the third day of his vacation, as promised. Lian Jing was going to an island in the southern city this time, and there were also five people from the Omega Class.
The tickets were booked by Lian Jing. Lian Jing’s classmates were so unreliable that they hadn’t bought seats together, so only the two girls, He Huan and Xia ZhiNing, were able to sit together.
After being scolded, everyone carried their luggage and accepted their fate. Shi Yu had just taken his seat and was looking out the window when a shadow suddenly fell on the side of his face.
Although they hadn’t seen each other for a long time, Shi Yu thought he was in a good mood and would be able to face Jiang Chengli calmly. However, his heart still beat faster when their eyes met. This unique reaction to Jiang ChengLi appeared to have become a habit.
Jiang ChengLi seemed to have something to say, then Li Chen said as he passed by, “So coincidental. You guys are also out to play?”
Jiang ChengLi and Shi Yu stared at the flamboyant Li Chen at the same time. Soon, the latter wasn’t able to act anymore, and ran away while he covered his face with his school bag.
Jiang ChengLi looked down and found Shi Yu was staring at him with a wary expression. He sighed helplessly. “I swear, I really didn’t know this time.”
Shi Yu tilted his head and looked at Jiang ChengLi’s ticket. The seat marked on it happened to be next to his own.
Jiang ChengLi hesitated briefly. “I’ll go find a different seat.”
“No need. Just sit here.” Shi Yu looked out the window and whispered, “It’s not impossible to sit.”
Jiang ChengLi looked for a moment, bent down and sat next to him. He quietly took out his cell phone and headphones, and finally pointed to one side to wear. The other side was left to Shi Yu.
Soon, the train departed. An hour and a half ride wasn’t short. Shi Yu looked out the window for a long time, only to feel a little dizzy. The air in the carriage was a little turbid, mixed with a variety of scents, and an omega wasn’t very adaptable.
“Uncomfortable?” The person beside him asked in a low voice.
Shi Yu shook his head and raised his hand to support the side of his face.
Jiang ChengLi took out a bottle of blocker from his pocket, a very light cedar smell, and put it in front of Shi Yu. “Do you want to spray some?”
Shi Yu looked at him and said in a casual voice, “Don’t you watch the video anymore?”
“You don’t feel well, but you know I’m watching a video?”
Shi Yu took the blocker and stood up, expressionless, to go to the bathroom. Xia ZhiNing saw him as he passed by, then saw as Jiang ChengLi followed behind him.
Her eyes circled around the two, then she forced herself to look away and acted like she hadn’t seen.
Shi Yu was a little remorseful that he put his blocker in his suitcase and now had to bother Jiang ChengLi.
When the pheromones fell on the back of his neck, he felt a little more comfortable. He got a cup of water to wash his face, and only then left the bathroom. Jiang ChengLi was standing at the door. When Shi Yu came out, he tilted his head slightly and asked in a soft voice, “Feeling better?”
Shi Yu wanted to say something, but looked at the concern and worry in his eyes, and he swallowed the words. “Much better, thanks.”
He returned the blocker to Jiang ChengLi, then looked at the person who was still standing there. A little awkward and embarrassed, he said, “Back together?”
Jiang ChengLi smiled slowly and put the remaining warm bottle in his pocket. “Where are you going?”
Jiang ChengLi’s eyelashes trembled slightly as he confessed, “Li Chen and I are also going to Nanchuan Island.”
Shi Yu nodded and went back to the carriage without returning to his seat first. Then, he found where Lian Jing was sitting.
Student Lian Jing, who had no idea, was playing a game with Li Chen. “Quick, cover me, cover me!”
Shi Yu slowly picked off one of his headphones and was greeted by Lian Jing’s face which was first annoyed, then surprised, and finally terrified.
Shi Yu thoughtfully helped him put the headset back in his hand and patted his shoulder with a smile. “It’s okay. You continue to play. I won’t bother you.”
Lian Jing immediately turned around and tried to move over Li Chen, but the man had his hands folded and his face pointed out the window, with an expression of a Buddha who had jumped out of the three worlds and wasn’t in the five elements.
Lian Jing, “…”
Shi Yu got his answer and hesitated for a while as he returned to his seat.
Jiang ChengLi slowly lifted his eyes. “If you don’t like it, I’ll get off later and go back.”
Shi Yu frowned, “Why should you go back? It has nothing to do with you.” He was looking for Lian Jing to settle accounts. He wouldn’t just find someone to vent his emotions. Jiang ChengLi was also cheated over. He was also a victim.
Jiang ChengLi inclined his head to look at him and whispered, “Don’t force it. I know you don’t want to see me.”
The train stopped, Shi Yu hadn’t stood very firmly, so Jiang ChengLi supported his waist. It brought the person into his arms a little. Shi Yu uncontrollably fell on his seat, then abruptly crashed against the seat back, and met the eyes in front of him.
Jiang ChengLi seemed to be coveting the moment, but was jealous of the initial promise with him. He slowly pulled his hand back and went to explain the accident, but heard as Shi Yu said, “I don’t not want to see you.”
He was stunned, and when he looked up again, the omega had sat back down next to him, his fingertips wrapped around his side of the headphones and cheeks slightly red. “I want to listen to a song. Can we listen together?”
