Gu Yesheng naturally didn’t know what Yi Jiamu was thinking in his little head. Looking at the child’s somewhat dazed expression, he couldn’t help reflecting. He wondered if his impulsive confession was too sudden.
“It is as I said in the haunted house. I like you and I hope you can be my boyfriend.” Gu Yesheng thought of the child’s acceptance and his tone softened a lot. Then he decided to try guiding Yi Jiamu patiently and systematically. “I know that this is probably my one-sided thought but even if you haven’t thought about this issue before, I hope you can consider it seriously from now on.”
Yi Jiamu was frozen for a long time before he finally opened his mouth slowly. “However, I don’t know how to think about it seriously…”
Since learning about the fan area of the Sublime Star forum, he had been looking at the words of the Shen Ze CP. Regardless of whether his CP was a BE or HE, he never thought that Gu Yesheng would like him. It wasn’t easy to shift his thoughts even if he was told it was a possibility.
First of all, he was nervous. Besides the nervousness, there was an unidentified emotion. It was a chaotic emotion he had never felt before. However, there didn’t seem to be too much rejection.
Gu Yesheng had always been paying attention to Yi Jiamu’s expression. Just then, he slowly moved forward, narrowing the distance between them. He looked quite calm if it wasn’t for the vague emotions in his eyes. It wasn’t until the last step that he staggered and held the back of the chair to support himself.
Gu Yesheng pressed his mouth together and maintained this stance. He leaned forward and stared into Yi Jiamu’s eyes from a short distance. “Don’t look at me like this. In fact, my patience is quite good. So don’t worry, I can give you a lot of time to think slowly.”
He paused momentarily and faint laughter flashed in his eyes. “Think about it… until you’ve finally figured it out.”
Yi Jiamu pursed his lips. “But…”
Gu Yesheng didn’t want to hear any words that represented a turning point. Don’t look at his light and gentle appearance. In fact, every one of Yi Jiamu’s words affected his nerves. He didn’t give the child a chance to finish speaking and blocked the later words. “There is no need for buts.”
Gu Yesheng let out a long sigh and tried to make his voice less tense. “I know that this situation is sudden for you but I know what I’m doing. Don’t worry, I’m not Xu Yi who can say this to anyone. I haven’t been with any other omegas before. This is my first time confessing.”
As if to prove something, he gently placed his palm on the back of Yi Jiamu’s hand. “You see, I’m so nervous that my hands are cold.”
Yi Jiamu felt the cold touch on the back of his hand and the only response he could make was a slow nod.
Gu Yesheng saw his reaction and couldn’t help smiling. “It really is burdensome and requires courage to make a confession. So don’t rush to reject me. Strive for that last step so as to not make me physically and mentally tired okay?”
His sorrowful remarks one after another sounded reasonable. Yi Jiamu was dazed but this time, he reacted slightly. “If I refuse, will you give up?”
“No, I’ll probably find chances to confess again a few times.” Gu Yesheng glanced at the other person and licked his lips. “Or do you like listening to my confession? In fact, I don’t mind telling you often. For example, I can say it again now…”
Then he suddenly approached, his soft lips almost kissing Yi Jiamu’s hot ears. “I like you.”
Yi Jiamu, “……”
His breathing was short and his heart thumped as a strange electric current jumped all the way from the soles of his feet to the top of his head. It was as if countless fireworks were exploding in his mind. Yi Jiamu’s mind exploded for a bit and it wasn’t until his senses returned that he remembered to push the shameless Gu Yesheng away.
He finally managed to say something. “W-Who said that I like to listen? In any case, I’m not in a hurry. Wait for me to go back… I’ll think about it again.”
The corners of Gu Yesheng’s mouth rose and he seemed to be very kind. “Okay, I’m not in a hurry. You think about it slowly.”
He saw that Yi Jiamu’s head lowered even further and his gaze skimmed over the torn clothing. He smiled and asked, “Do you still want to play at the amusement park?”
Perhaps he was afraid he would say something silly again. This time, Yi Jiamu replied very simply. “Play.”
Gu Yesheng managed to suppress his laughter. He naturally grabbed Yi Jiamu’s wrist and took him somewhere. “Let’s go and get you a coat first.”
Yi Jiamu was pulled up from the chair and his heart thumped again as his eyes fell on Gu Yesheng’s overly beautiful hand. He paused before moving his gaze away.
Gu Yesheng went with Yi Jiamu to a nearby store to buy a coat. Then they started to play other attractions. However, due to the previous interruption, Yi Jiamu’s mind wasn’t entirely on the amusement park attractions. The number of times he blushed total was more than in his entire life. By the time they finished and got back to the hotel, it was around 9 in the evening.
Gu Yesheng was very calm. He mentioned the flight time back to Sublime Star tomorrow and returned to his room without any extra entanglements. This made Yi Jiamu sigh with relief. He closed the door of his room and realized that his entire body was too tight due to tension. Now that he relaxed, he felt a bit soft and simply lay down on the bed.
He maintained this posture and paused for a moment. Then he grabbed his communicator, rolled to the side, wrapped his entire body in the quilt and shrank into a ball. [Bei Bei, what if the CP is really a BE?]
In the student dormitory of Sublime Star, Sang Bei was naturally stunned when he saw the message. He repeatedly determined the source of the message and his keen sense for gossip ignited. [Did something happen during the league?]
Yi Jiamu was silent for a moment before replying: [No.]
Sang Bei: [Then it happened after the match?]
Yi Jiamu, “……”
He was about to one-sidedly end the conversation when Sang Bei sent a video call request. Yi Jiamu hesitated for a moment before accepting.
Sang Bei first saw the black screen. It wasn’t until Yi Jiamu lifted the quilt that Sang Bei reacted. “Is there someone else in your room?”
Sang Bei asked, “Then why are you hiding in the quilt?”
“…I want to.”
Sang Bei stared at his roommate’s overly tense expression for a long time before blinking slowly. “Mumu, you look like this. Could it be… did God Ye confess to you?”
Yi Jiamu didn’t speak. He just silently stared at Sang Bei through the screen. For a time, there was a strange silence around him.
Sang Bei almost jumped from his chair. “F*k, God Ye really confessed?”
Yi Jiamu continued to maintain his expressionless face. Sang Bei inevitably calmed down due to this gaze. After a while, he asked tentatively, “You didn’t agree?”
The angle of Yi Jiamu’s mouth lowered and he finally nodded.
“……” He thought of the first question sent by Yi Jiamu and Sang Bei felt like he was about to suffocate. “Did you refuse due to the Shen Ze CP?”
Yi Jiamu thought about it. “No, it can’t be regarded as the reason.”
It was mainly that it felt too sudden. Sang Bei finally felt a bit of relief. If Yi Jiamu lost love due to this CP, as the soul mentor who brought Yi Jiamu into the circle, Sangbei’s apology wouldn’t be sufficient even if he killed himself hundreds of times.
Sang Bei observed Yi Jiamu normally and it was obvious that he didn’t dislike Gu Yesheng. Moreover, the two of them had already marked each other. Now that God Ye was actively confessing, it would be impossible to tolerate if they didn’t get together!
Sang Bei organized his words. “Mumu, when it comes to feelings, you still need to follow your own. Don’t be arrogant, you know? There are tens of millions of CPs in the world and I will give you a comparison. How many destined alphas can encounter an omega in their life? In particular, an alpha like God Ye. There are many young and beautiful omegas staring at him secretly. Thus, when it is time to take it, you must be fast and tough, you know!”
Yi Jiamu wanted to say that he hadn’t refused when there was a knock on the door. “Mumu, are you asleep?”
Sang Bei’s ears were very sharp and he heard it. “Is God Ye knocking on the door?!!!”
Yi Jiamu’s ears turned red. “You misheard.”
Sang Bei urged him. “Go and open the door!”
“…Then what about you?”
Sang Bei gave a deep smile. “I’m not in a hurry. You should take care of this first.”
Yi Jiamu was silent for a moment before he got out of bed and walked over to open the door. Gu Yesheng was standing outside the door in a bathrobe. His half-wet hair wasn’t dried and there were faint drops of water that slowly slipped down his collarbone, following the deep V neckline.
Floating around him were the pheromones belonging to an alpha. It was the faint scent of narcissus.
Gu Yesheng saw Yi Jiamu and showed a look of helplessness. His gaze pointedly focused on the interior of the room. “I don’t know what is going on with this hotel. I was taking a shower when there was suddenly no water. If you don’t mind, can I borrow your bathroom?”
Yi Jiamu wanted to say that he minded but when he raised his head, he met Gu Yesheng’s eyes. “Look at how sticky I am now. I can’t sleep well even if I want to sleep.”
Yi Jiamu couldn’t help looking back at his bed.
He could see that the video call had been ended by Sang Bei and the screen was completely dark. He was silent for a moment before moving sideways. “Come in.”
