“What are you doing?!”
A rebuke came from the side, Xie Yi was going to kick Xie Quan and he froze there. He looked sideways at a tall man whose gaze burned into him like a statue and had a face without a trace of emotion, letting his heart fill with fear. He recognized this person, when the other just moved in, he inadvertently bumped into him.
That was the first time Xie Yi met such a handsome man in his life. But unfortunately, he was a beta. Otherwise, he would have taken the initiative to pursue him. Betas were not promising.
They could only become the bottom of society, and those who were lucky, could only climb to the upper middle class. However, the upper class was controlled by alphas, as well as omegas. Even the alphas were only soldiers defending the omegas.
But after all, it was the person who made his heart flutter for a moment, so Xie Yi still slightly restrained himself, “Do not meddle!”
Ji Cheying came over in stride, his gait was steady and strong, and when he walked past Xie Yi and Márquez, he gave them a cold glance. The gaze was like cold ice, making their hearts tremble. He bent down and put his hand on Xie Quan’s arm, and then he gently lifted him up.
Xie Quan was wearing short sleeves and his elbow joints were burning, probably from scraping on the ground. Xie Quan looked up at Ji Cheying, and the first thing that came to his mind was the forced application of medicine earlier.
At that time, there was no wound, but the medicine was applied. This time, there was really a wound. Could it be that this was retribution? The universe reminding him to not waste things?
Ji Cheying saw that Xie Quan did not answer him, and a pair of clear peach blossom eyes were now a bit vague, as if in a daze.
Ji Cheying’s brow was locked, his eyes were worried, and his heart was furious. The poor boy. Poor kid must be stunned by this situation!
And at this time, Xie Yi saw Ji Cheying protect Xie Quan. His heart was filled with more resentful cynicism and he sneered, “This little lover is quite a handful, but it’s a pity that you are so protective of him, and don’t know how many others he’s had behind your back. You should be careful not to catch a disease.”
Márquez’s face turned ugly as Xie Yi’s words became more and more excessive, and his voice became heavier, “Enough! Stop this nonsense!”
Ji Cheying heard the words and turned around, blocking Xie Quan behind him, looking at Xie Yi and Márquez. His mouth instead raised in a shallow arc, and he laughed, his tone sneering, “This sentence should be said to yourself. Go to the hospital to check. Remind them to check your brain since they will certainly find something wrong, otherwise it’s a waste of money.”
If it were not for the fact that the opposite person was an omega, and he never hits an omega, he would not be standing here talking properly but exchanging fists.
Xie Yi wanted to get rid of the hand Márquez held him back with, but as an omega, he had never paid attention to physical exercise, and his strength to struggle did not have a sense of existence in front of the strong alpha.
Xie Yi glared angrily at Márquez, “Get the fuck off me! Don’t you forget, you’re still living in my house!”
This was why Márquez had been tolerant of Xie Yi in the beginning. He still coveted Xie Yi’s family’s assets in the end, but to let Xie Yi do whatever he wanted was too much of a nuisance.
While Márquez was struggling with what to do, Xie Quan finally spoke up. Mainly, he finally came back from his own thinking and looked at the people who were still arguing. He said without warmth, “Cousin, don’t be angry, I’m a beta. I don’t deserve him, he’s an alpha, but he doesn’t deserve you either.”
“…” All three of them were stunned.
Xie Yi was even more baffled by this unexpected statement, he frowned, “What do you mean?”
Xie Quan said sincerely, “He is only a B-grade alpha. Since Uncle sent you to the First National Academy, you must find an A-grade alpha to match you.” The speed of Xie Quan’s speech was still unhurried, but it did not make people feel anxious, but, instead, made those who were listening calm along with his voice. Xie Quan then said slowly, “And he, even knowing I’m a beta, wants to sleep with me. I am not responsible, but you can rest assured that we have not slept together, and will not.” After a pause, fearing that Xie Yi did not believe, he added a sentence with a harmless smile, “If you are looking for a bed partner, Mr. Ji is much more suitable than him, hmm?”
The ‘hmm’ at the end of the statement was very soulful.
It perfectly reflected Xie Quan’s sincerity in saying this sentence, so that they would not doubt the truth of Xie Quan’s words, even with a little sales pitch. Márquez’s face was darkened by Xie Quan’s bluntness. And Xie Yi, who probably had never seen such a clear perception of self, did not know what to say for a while.
After a few seconds of dumbfoundedness, Xie Yi seemed to have no more anger. Xie Quan had some truth in what he said, Márquez was not good enough for him. It was only when Márquez was madly pursuing him that he decided to get along with the other, which his parents didn’t even know about. And, to be honest, Márquez, except for being an alpha, was not even as good as the one in front of him. If he were looking for a fuck buddy, this beta in front of him was better.
The pride of Xie Yi’s heart from ‘I am an omega’ rekindled, looking at Xie Quan, his gaze even became pity. He was good-looking but what was the use? He could only be a toy to be played with and then thrown away.
“You have some self-awareness.” He grunted coldly and was not in the mood to stay here any longer. He looked at Márquez and dropped a disgusted sentence, “We’re breaking up, so hurry up and move out of here and don’t force me to find someone to evict you.” And then he left.
Márquez also did not expect how it would develop into this situation. Seeing that the omega he had hooked up with was about to be lost, he gave Xie Quan a hard look and then hurriedly chased after him, “Xiao Yi, Xiao Yi, listen to my explanation.”
Seeing both troubles gone, Xie Quan sighed somewhat heartily and tiredly, then he squatted down trying to gather his food scattered on the ground.
Picking it up, he saw the long straight legs standing next to him, he froze for a moment and looked up at Ji Cheying who had been silent, “You’re still here, huh?”
“…” Ji Cheying looked at Xie Quan, who was crouching on the ground, with a complicated expression, “You…”
The words in his head, which one of them seemed to be the wrong one to say. In the end, he could only spit out a sentence with difficulty, “You’re quite bold.”
Whether it was to say that Márquez wanted to sleep with him but he was not responsible. Or that he was a better bed partner. This was probably the first time he’d ever been discussed to his face as to whether he was a suitable bed partner. He wasn’t even sure if he should thank Xie Quan for appreciating him.
“It’s okay.” Xie Quan replied calmly, “I’m just telling the truth.”
“…” So, he really thought he’d be a good bed partner?
Ji Cheying coughed lightly as he knelt down and helped Xie Quan clean up, “I thought you liked that Márquez.”
Xie Quan looked at Ji Cheying in surprise, “Huh? Is that so?”
Ji Cheying nodded, “Didn’t you tell me earlier that an alpha can like a beta?”
Xie Quan admitted, “That’s right.” After saying that, he showed a puzzled look, “Isn’t that so?”
Ji Cheying looked at Xie Quan’s frank face, he finally realized that when Xie Quan said this, he was simply stating a fact and had nothing to do with Márquez or himself. He finally put his mind at ease, “When did you find out that he had other intentions for you?”
Xie Quan replied slowly, “When we first met.”
“You’re quite perceptive.”
Xie Quan was speechless, “… I’m not blind.”
“He had ‘I want to sleep with you’ written directly in his eyes, in big letters.” Xie Quan said expressionlessly.
At this time the scattered things were retrieved into the bags, Xie Quan once again stood up carrying the two bags, his clear eyes were like a calm lake without a ripple, “But that’s normal, so it doesn’t matter.”
Ji Cheying froze.
Ji Chenying still didn’t know Xie Quan well enough. Xie Quan was never slow or even insensitive to the malice of others. However, he was also almost desensitized and numb.
When a person’s life was soaked in all kinds of malice for more than a decade, the existence of malice had become a daily routine. And Xie Quan was used to dealing with the malice everywhere with silence.
For those who struggled, all died before him.
