Fei Cheng’s whole body froze as if he had been electrocuted.
Nan HuaiLin was still kissing his neck indiscriminately, biting and licking, eagerly.
Fei Cheng looked at his red face and whispered, “You started it, so don’t blame me, my saliva is much better than an infusion.”
Fei Cheng’s whole body pressed against Nan HuaiLin’s body, then he lowered his head and kissed his lips.
Lips pressed against lips, tongue entwined with tongue.
Nan HuaiLin was like a nursing baby, greedily sucking the fluids in Fei Cheng’s mouth. Fei Cheng felt that his three souls were about to be sucked away by him, and it took all his strength to control himself, not to use his lower body against him.
Suddenly, a white light flashed rapidly in his mind.
It appeared…this fierce kiss with Nan HuaiLin…This touch, this taste, he had definitely tasted… Could it be that it was in a dream? But why did it feel so real?
“What are you doing?”
A cold voice woke up Fei Cheng from his confusion. He hurriedly saved his lips and tongue from Nan HuaiLin’s mouth, but his body was still pressed against Nan HuaiLin’s. He looked at Fei Zheng standing in the doorway with a red face and a thick neck, and called out “Brother” in a hoarse voice. He was so embarrassed that he didn’t know what to say.
Fei Zheng walked over, his eyes bouncing between the two for a few seconds, and asked, “Boyfriend?”
Fei Cheng replied nervously, “No, just… I’m just… just a friend, I just… I just wanted to feed him some dragon’s saliva to help him regain his senses.” He looked up sharply, “Brother, what the hell is going on here? How come you were the one who took him to the hospital? How could he have been drugged? Who did such a dirty thing?”
Fei Zheng said indifferently, “I just happened to pass by and heard him calling your name, so I took care of it. I have something to do, I’ll leave now.”
Without waiting for Fei Cheng to ask any further questions, Fei Zheng turned to leave. He walked to the door and then stopped, turned back and said, “This is a hospital, watch your manners.”
Fei Cheng snapped, “Got it, go your way.” Suddenly he remembered something else and called Fei Zheng, “Hey brother, let’s switch cars, you take Hannibal home.”
The two of them exchanged car keys, and Fei Zheng left.
Maybe the infusion worked, or maybe the dragon’s saliva was working its magic. Nan HuaiLin became a lot more stable, lying in Fei Cheng’s arms like a cat, occasionally letting out a faint moan.
Fei Cheng gently patted Nan HuaiLin’s back, coaxing him like a child.
He silently reminisced about the intense kiss, and gradually his mouth became dry. He hurriedly dismissed the distracting thoughts and cleared his mind, and then unconsciously fell asleep.
When the infusion was halfway through, Nan HuaiLin woke up.
He opened his eyes with a jerk, and what he saw was Fei Cheng’s sleeping face.
He removed his arm from around his waist and sat up on the bed, while Fei Cheng woke up and sat up after him, yawning and asking, “Do you feel better?”
Except for the severe headache, Nan HuaiLin did not feel uncomfortable anywhere else, and was slightly relieved that he could talk to Fei Cheng, “Thank you, for saving me.” Nan HuaiLin still remembered that when he was at the end of his rope, Fei Cheng fell from the sky and he reached out and grabbed Fei Cheng’s sleeve.
“I didn’t save you,” Fei Cheng said, looking at him, “it was my brother.”
Fei, Fei Zheng?
Nan HuaiLin was abruptly startled, and his eyes scanned around, but he didn’t see a third person in the ward.
“He’s gone.” Fei Cheng said.
Nan HuaiLin breathed a sigh of relief, as if he had done something wrong, and lowered his head, not daring to look at Fei Cheng’s face.
Fei Cheng reached out, picked up his chin and forced him to look at himself, “Tell me, what’s going on?”
“Your brother… No, what did Fei Zheng say?” Nan HuaiLin’s gaze flickered.
“He didn’t say anything, he told me to ask you.” Fei Cheng swept a glance at him. “What are you wearing? Are you working as a waiter somewhere?”
Nan HuaiLin looked down and saw that he was still wearing his KTV uniform. He had to return the uniform, there was a deposit of two hundred.
“Say something.” Fei Cheng urged him.
Nan HuaiLin lowered his head again and whispered, “I was working at a KTV and met a guy I had a problem with before. He secretly drugged the wine and tricked me into drinking it, trying to rape me… And then you – no, your brother saved me.”
Fei Cheng didn’t know what to say for a while, and only after half a day did he speak, “Why did you go to work at a KTV?”
Nan HuaiLin pulled the corner of his mouth, “Of course it’s to earn money.”
Fei Cheng had lived for more than two hundred years and never knew what it meant to be short of money, so he never thought Nan HuaiLin would be short of money either.
He couldn’t help but ask, “Why are you inviting me to dinner if you don’t have money?”
Nan HuaiLin said, “Because I want to thank you for helping me.”
Fei Cheng suddenly laughed.
Nan HuaiLin looked at him with a puzzled expression, “What are you laughing at?”
Fei Cheng said with a smile, “I’m laughing at the fact that you’ve been in the hospital for three days in a row, and your money has been used to generate revenue for the hospital, right?”
Nan HuaiLin was also amused.
The first two days he fainted with a fever, and today he was drugged. He ran to the hospital every day, it was really sad.
“Are you so poor that you can’t even eat?” Fei Cheng put away his smile and asked seriously.
“I earned 2,000 today at the KTV, enough to spend for a while.” Nan HuaiLin said, with a little bragging in his tone.
Fei Cheng took out his wallet, pulled out a card and shoved it directly into Nan HuaiLin’s hand, “Take it and spend it. Don’t work part-time.”
Nan HuaiLin was confused for a moment and hurriedly gave it back to him, “I don’t want it!”
Fei Cheng refused to take it and said, “You are an artist of Ming Xi, working at a karaoke bar is bad for the company’s image, I won’t allow that to happen.”
“I’m sorry…” Nan HuaiLin was ashamed, “I didn’t think about it that much.”
Fei Cheng thought it might have been a bit harsh and that he looked a bit unforgiving, so he reassured him, “The good thing is that you’re not famous, and you don’t have much influence on the company, but you still have to pay attention.”
Nan HuaiLin nodded, “I will.”
Fei Cheng smiled with satisfaction. “You can keep this card. Spend it as you like, and return it to me when you earn money.”
Nan HuaiLin was full of gratitude and his eyes were slightly red. “Thank you, Fei Cheng.”
In the past few years since he came to Beijing, his life had been filled with nothing but Shi Yan and acting, and he didn’t even have a close friend.
Fei Cheng suddenly said without thinking, “Your boyfriend must be very handsome, right?”
Nan HuaiLin, “???” He must be a Gemini, he talks too much.
Fei Cheng said, “You’ve been in the hospital three times and I haven’t seen your boyfriend show up. He doesn’t care about you and you’re still with him. Is he as handsome as me?”
It would be inhuman to lie at this point.
Nan HuaiLin bowed his head and said, “I’m sorry I lied to you.”
Fei Cheng was stunned, “What did you lie to me about?”
Nan HuaiLin said, “Actually…I don’t have a boyfriend.”
Fei Cheng, “…”
Nan HuaiLin paused and said, “That day on the subway, I was crying because I had just broken up with my boyfriend…To be precise, I had been dumped.”
Fei Cheng recalled that day and asked with uncertainty, “Your boyfriend… No, your ex-boyfriend, was his name Shi Yan?”
Nan HuaiLin looked up with a start, “How did you…”
Fei Cheng smiled and said, “I got off the bus with you that day and followed you. I heard you talking on the phone and I think you mentioned this name.”
Nan HuaiLin let out a lukewarm “Wow,” After two seconds of silence, he said, “Don’t tell anyone, especially Shen Chong.”
Fei Cheng nodded, “Is Shen Chong still pestering you?”
“No,” Nan HuaiLin said, “He said he wants to be my friend, and I don’t know if it’s true.”
Fei Cheng smiled and said, “He made a bet with me earlier that he would sleep with you within a week, and if he couldn’t, he would call me dad.”
Nan HuaiLin was a little embarrassed, “I don’t know what he sees in me…”
Fei Cheng said, “He likes your body and ass. He said you are the best muscle zero.”
Nan HuaiLin, “…”
I want to gag him!
Fei Cheng continued, “Shen Chong has never failed in all his years of love, and you are the first one to deny him seriously, so he probably has to write you off.”
Nan HuaiLin became more and more embarrassed, and when saw that the drip was almost finished, he asked Fei Cheng to call the nurse. The needle was removed, the money was paid, and the two of them left the hospital.
Fei Cheng said, “I’m driving today. I’ll take you home.”
Nan HuaiLin refused, but Fei Cheng forced him into the car, so Nan HuaiLin had no choice but to comply, saying, “Then take me to KTV first. I have to return my uniform, and my clothes and bag are still there.”
The hospital was very close to the KTV, ten minutes away.
Nan HuaiLin changed into his own clothes and returned his uniform, but the deposit was not returned because he was halfway through his work and no one was there. Nan HuaiLin did not argue, just put his bag on his back and left.
It was late at night and the road was not congested at all, so Fei Cheng drove to Nan HuaiLin’s house in half an hour.
Nan HuaiLin said, “Let’s stop at the intersection in front.”
Fei Cheng said, “I’ll drop you off in front of your house.”
Nan HuaiLin said, “The alley is narrow, so you can’t get out if you drive into it.”
Fei Cheng had no choice but to pull over.
“Thank you for dropping me off.” Nan HuaiLin paused and added, “Please tell Mr. Fei for me, thank him for saving me.”
Fei Cheng nodded, “Can you tell me who the bastard that drugged you is? I’ll help you teach him a lesson.”
“I’ll take care of my own business, don’t worry about it.” Nan HuaiLin waved at him. “I’m leaving, take care, bye.”
Fei Cheng also waved, “Bye.”
Nan HuaiLin crossed the road and entered a narrow alley.
There was no street light, so he turned on the flashlight of his cell phone to shine.
When he passed by the supermarket, he saw the light was still on, so he went in and bought a bucket of noodles and a Cornetto. 1 He needed to eat something sweet to regulate his bad mood.
When he arrived home, he took out his key and opened the door, then saw a piece of paper on the door, tore it off, took it into the house, turned on the light and sat on the bed to see what was written on the paper.
In response to the government’s population clearance policy, this building will be demolished next month, please move out before the end of the month, the remaining rent will be refunded in full, I am sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.
“Fuck!” Nan HuaiLin cursed with a rare expletive. He had to move out by the end of the month, where could he move to? I want to die, damn it!
The author has something to say.
Cheng Cheng: Please keep your mouth shut.
Nan Nan: What’s wrong?
Cheng Cheng: Because I can’t help but kiss it.
