Chapter 93: I’m Late, Sorry For the Long Wait

Translated by Addis of Exiled Rebels Scanlations

Gu Ang returned to the villa slowly, carrying his suitcase. He looked around again. He felt warm and friendly in the room just now, but now it was like he had fallen into a freezing cellar. It was empty and uninviting, just like a pretty box. In the end, it was because someone was missing from the house.

He took the things out of the suitcase and put them in place, and hung the clothes one by one in the closet. Finally, there was a nicely folded shirt left in the suitcase, which belonged to Ye Fei. He went into the bathroom, took a shower, and lay down on the bed and huddled under the covers.

The silk comforter was very smooth and warm, suitable for this kind of March weather, but it felt like something was missing. Gu Ang thought about it, got up again and pulled Ye Fei’s shirt under the blanket and took it into his arms.

It had just been taken off Ye Fei’s body, the clothes were still stained with some residual scent, a very light and soothing smell. He lowered his head and buried himself in the clothes, little by little to draw the light fragrance.

Then release a little bit of pheromone flavor, so that the smell of white peach oolong slowly penetrated the surroundings. He couldn’t understand his actions himself, but couldn’t help but do such a move. Mixed together, the smell felt more seductive.

Gu Ang thought back to the last time he piled Ye Fei’s clothes all over the bed and regretted somewhat that he only took one. He should have emptied Ye Fei’s entire closet, and then threw all those clothes on the bed, building a nest in a messy way.

This way, when lying in it, he would feel more at ease. But apparently, a worn shirt wasn’t enough to satisfy his desire. He rolled around with his clothes, and became more conscious.

It was almost twelve o’clock, was Ye Fei asleep?

Gu Ang rolled over and clicked on the dialog box, tapping his fingertips on the keyboard to type.

[I’m going to bed.] The tone of voice had a little twisted arrogance in it. He guessed that Ye Fei should be able to understand the meaning of the words.

The other side replied in seconds: [Good night, Light.]

Gu Ang froze, That’s it? He was probably the legendary ender of the conversation, after the first sentence, there was no next sentence. He rolled around on the bed, thinking of what else he could say. He accidentally touched the video call with his fingertips.

Gu Ang’s hand shook with fear and was about to turn it off when the screen popped open.

The angle was skewed, the screen’s border cut through half of Ye Fei’s face, and the rest of the screen was infinite blackness.

Gu Ang stammered, “W-wrong button.”

Ye Fei propped his elbows on the pillow, supporting his head to look at Gu Ang on the screen. The light was dim, and he immediately saw the clothes clutched tightly in his lover’s arms. Like a squirrel about to spend the winter, he was holding on to his food firmly. The slender fingers grabbed the shirt by the folds, cute and heart-softening.

Ye Fei asked softly, “Little liar, did you have trouble sleeping?”

Gu Ang spoke stiffly, “No, I’m sleepy. I can’t even send you a message without feeling sleepy, and the next thing I know, I’ll be asleep.”

Ye Fei didn’t say anything, just stared at him quietly.

Gu Ang’s body temperature rose at the sight, and he stammered, “Okay, I admit it, I can’t sleep.”

Ye Fei laughed lightly, sat up from under the covers and leaned over the edge of the bed. With the covers folded around his half-naked waist, he took the communicator and changed the angle, “Then I’ll talk with you for a while, and hang up when you fall asleep.”

Gu Ang blinked, his eyes falling on the lean lines of his upper body, a little shaken. He froze and asked, “What will you talk about?”

It was rare for the two of them to lie down and just talk. In the past, the two of them were stuck in the army every day, either each of them went out to fight and do tasks, time was tight, and taking time to send a message was already a luxury.

The crossover back into roommates didn’t feel real. Now a little apart, only to find that a few years of living together had become a habit. He simply didn’t dare to think, if he and Ye Fei were to really say goodbye, how would he survive?

“Casual conversation, like our wedding.” Ye Fei’s voice was soft, like the sound of a cello coming from far away in the dead of night. The tone was pure and pleasant, the most moving good night song of the night.

Gu Ang propped up his head and chatted idly, “Where will the wedding be held? We haven’t had the time to do it before, this time we must have a good appearance. You think of the location, invite all the people you can.”

Ye Fei sighed, “If I knew you and I would divorce after 10 days of marriage, I would have had a big party before I got my license. The two certificates were finished secretly, it was really stifling.”

The wedding was a joyous occasion, no one expected the change ten days later.

Gu Ang slightly lowered his eyes, “I’m sorry, it’s my fault.”

“I don’t mean to blame you, I blame myself, I haven’t given you enough security.” Ye Fei liked to take all the blame on himself. Looking back now, he only felt glad that it was good that the two of them didn’t get separated.

Gu Ang said, “How about finding a beach? Or maybe something a little more exciting, an air wedding?”

“Whatever you want.” Ye Fei returned good-naturedly.

Gu Ang couldn’t help but laugh, the corners of his mouth raised and couldn’t fall, and asked, “Big brother, why do you love me so much?”

He clearly knew the answer, but just wanted to hear it.

Ye Fei tsked, “You ask this very bullyingly, I told you, our family has ancestral deep love.”

“Well, yes. You and Uncle Ye are both the same, long-suffering.” Gu Ang was relieved. He rolled over slightly and looked out the window, only to realize that the window was left open. A fragrance of flowers came out of the crack, wafting in from the garden downstairs. Gu Ang picked a topic at random, “I don’t know what flowers are blooming outside, the room is full of their fragrance.”

Ye Fei said, “It’s white peach blossoms, I asked someone to plant them. You can go see them tomorrow, they’re beautiful.”

The conversation was all about small things, but Gu Ang felt a softness inside. Ye Fei’s love had never been a big fanfare, but from the smallest details, it was always in the unconscious way, touching his heart. Gu Ang felt that he couldn’t sleep tonight.

He now couldn’t wait to get that mess resolved, and even wanted to immediately go into the Lu family’s study to find evidence. It was a bit annoying to be in a hurry and just wait.

The day was already late, these days tossed down, and Ye Fei looked a little tired, having blue and black circles underneath his eyes. Gu Ang felt it was a little unbearable, his heartache spread up, and ruthlessly wanted to end the call, “I’m ready to sleep, so hang up?”

“No, put the screen by the pillow.” Ye Fei lay on his side and looked at him, his eyes filled with tenderness, “I’ll hang up when you’re asleep.”

Gu Ang let out a cry and could only do as he was told. He closed his eyes slightly, pretending to be asleep, but his heartbeat was a little unsteady. It seemed that with eyes closed, the burning sight became more obvious. He knew that Ye Fei was watching him, and he had to look like he was sleeping soundly.

The time passed very slowly, and he had nothing else on his mind but when Ye Fei would hang up the video. Gu Ang stiffened up, not daring to move a bit, and lay for a long time, his limbs tingling. There was silence all around, with the occasional rustle of the wind blowing through the treetops.

He finally lifted one eyelid slightly and squinted at the screen. It showed that the call was over.

Gu Ang sighed with relief and got up from under the covers, draped himself in Ye Fei’s shirt and walked to the terrace outside the room. He propped his hand on the railing and looked down on the garden from the second floor.

Ye Fei was right, the yard was full of white peach blossoms that stood out even in the dark. Clusters and clusters of them were so white that they looked like the moon had fallen on the trees. Ye Fei sent him a tree of moonlight. He lowered his head and admired it for a while, wrinkled his nose, was awakened by the cold wind that poured in, and sneezed.

Gu Ang, afraid of freezing cold and hurting the baby, hurriedly turned around and prepared to go inside. The moment he closed the floor-to-ceiling window, his eyes jumped across the path in the garden and saw a familiar figure.

He didn’t know when he appeared, standing under the tree that was full of moon, tilting his head to look at him. The wind blew up the hem of his shirt a little, he didn’t care, but his eyes were firmly fixed on the direction of the upper floor.

Gu Ang opened his mouth and wondered if the man heard him. It was like a question, or a mumble, “Big brother, why are you here?”

Ye Fei stood in the moonlight and looked up at him, his dark eyes looked like they were filled with a whole river of stars. He pointed to the door downstairs and said in a raised voice, “I’ll be upstairs soon. Go in first, don’t catch a cold.”

Gu Ang’s brain was dizzy as he turned into his room and opened the door to his bedroom. This person wasn’t asleep? Why did he suddenly come over? He was in a daze when he heard a clattering on the stairs, and soon Ye Fei came running to the door, panting slightly. He had come a long way with the late night cold wind and the late night dew to see his favorite person. When he saw the light in Gu Ang’s eyes, he felt that the trip was worth it.

“Big brother, what brings you here?” Gu Ang asked him, standing on the ground with bare feet, frozen. He pinched himself and glanced at the time on his bed, “I thought I was dreaming.”

Ye Fei stepped forward, reached out and wrapped his arms around the man and brought him into his arms, “You’re cold, why aren’t you wearing shoes?”

“I’m wearing your clothes, I’m not cold.” Gu Ang rubbed his shoulder, his voice unconsciously softened, “You haven’t said anything, why did you come over here?”

It was like a surprise that popped up out of nowhere, leaving him at a loss for words. He didn’t know what expression he should make to show his happiness.

Ye Fei took the person towards the bed, wrapped him with the quilt like a silkworm baby, and held him in his arms. He lowered his head and touched Gu Ang’s brow before saying, “You thought I didn’t notice you were pretending to sleep? You miss me and can’t sleep, right?”

Gu Ang muttered, “Mn, you found out.”

Ye Fei pressed his hand against his eyelids, “When I was staring at you with the video on, I noticed that your eyelids were trembling.” He added, “I was thinking that if I didn’t come, you might lose sleep all night.”

Gu Ang wasn’t ashamed to be exposed, and he hit all the right notes. It seemed worth it after all the fuss tonight. He reached out and wrapped his arms around Ye Fei, laughing lowly, “Didn’t you want to pretend to break up? What if someone finds out?”

Ye Fei also followed and laughed, “I can’t even make it through the day, let’s sleep like this today, I have to go to school tomorrow anyway. I’ll make a time difference with you, it’s not a big problem.” He closed his eyes and thought about it, “Besides, it’s the middle of the night, who would notice me running out.”

“That’s true.” Gu Ang shrank into his arms, and with it, his whole body warmed up. The effect of having someone lying next to him was better than a hundred shirts. Gu Ang closed his eyes, finally feeling drowsy, and his ruminative thoughts dissipated instantly. He was on the verge of falling into a dream state, whispering his love, “Big brother, thank you for coming here late at night.” He added, “Big brother, I love you.”

Ye Fei just stepped on Gu Ang’s cold instep with his foot, warming up the frozen toes little by little, “I’m late, sorry for making you wait.”

Ye Fei is the dream lover everyone wants, but doesn’t exist irl.

Fingers crossed they don’t get caught.
