Cole’s matter didn’t end there. The bakery owner had refused to settle an agreement and forcibly took him to the police station. Mr. Zeng came in person when he received the news to fish Cole out of jail. He sat in the police station hall and had a good talk with them before he managed to bail Cole out.
Cole is in his mid-twenties, he had nobody to care for him all his life, so when Mr. Zeng sincerely and faithfully helped him, he felt grateful inside his heart and after he learned from his previous mistakes in the past he decided to change and start a new life.
Two people stood in the corner, watching the whole process.
Lin Yuyan had just finished playing the piano outside, so his nose was slightly red from the cold. Gu Yaoyang told him to wear a hat, held his hand, and placed it into his pocket. He clasped a cigarette in one hand, occasionally taking a puff, and turned his head away when he breathed out so that he wouldn’t blow the smoke toward Lin Yuyan’s face.
“You kept on slandering teacher today even though it’s obvious that he’s a kind man with high morals.” Said Lin Yuyan when he became a little moved after seeing Mr. Zeng hugging Cole with reddening eyes.
Gu Yaoyang glanced at him and laughed disdainfully.
Lin Yuyan asked, “What are you laughing at?”
Gu Yaoyang said, “He followed us in as soon as we arrived here. Isn’t his house far away from this police station?”
Lin Yuyan said, “Maybe he was nearby?”
“Are you sure? He usually doesn’t even go out.”
Lin Yuyan replied, “Even if he doesn’t usually go out, it doesn’t mean that he wouldn’t go out at all. Moreover, Mostine is so small that it wouldn’t have taken him even a few minutes to drive over immediately after he received the news.”
“Lin Yuyan.” Gu Yaoyang narrowed his eyes.
“Why haven’t I seen you speak so neatly to me before? Is it because you’re defending your teacher?”
Lin Yuyan could sense that he was a little angry, so he confusedly asked, “We’re only having a discussion about this issue, why are you losing your temper over this?”
Gu Yaoyang asked, “When did I lose my temper?”
“You just did.” Lin Yuyan said, “Your voice is two degrees higher than usual.”
Gu Yaoyang didn’t say anything anymore. He took out his cigarette and pulled Lin Yuyan out. Lin Yuyan asked, “Where are you going?”
Gu Yaoyang answered, “Let me show you your teacher’s true face.”
After eleven o’clock in the evening, there was barely anyone walking in the street. The old man who played the piano had saved enough for tomorrow’s medical bills. He left the piano in a nearby store and went back with his injured hand. The whole street was dark, except for the bakery that got robbed.
In these cases, the staff would usually hold a meeting about security issues and to be more vigilant against future robberies, so it was understandable that they’ll leave work late, but there was no one inside the store. Even the store manager who yelled at Cole not too long ago was nowhere to be seen.
Gu Yaoyang and Lin Yuyan stood across the road and waited for more than ten minutes and saw Mr. Zeng walking over again with his dog-like cane.
Lin Yuyan blinked and asked innocently, “Is teacher here to help Cole apologize to the shopkeeper?”
Gu Yaoyang said indifferently, “How is that possible?”
The owner, who never showed up during the robbery, came out of the store and warmly greeted Mr. Zeng with a hug.
Lin Yuyan was stunned, watching the two eagerly chatting, he said in surprise, “Could it be that Cole was… framed?”
Gu Yaoyang answered, “No, but the shopkeeper must have deliberately guided him to steal.”
Lin Yuyan made a guess, “In other words, this was planned by teacher?”
Gu Yaoyan nodded, “If Cole hadn’t stolen from this bakery, it probably had nothing to do with him. But if it’s this bakery, then Zeng Yi must have had something to do with it.”
“This bakery was opened by his friend.” After Gu Yaoyang finished speaking, Lin Yuyan suddenly had a realization and looked at Mr. Zeng with complicated eyes.
Gu Yaoyang raised his eyebrows and expressionlessly said, “I told you a long time ago that he wasn’t a good person. He induced Cole to commit a crime and sent him to the police station. He then came out to bail him in person and tolerated his flaws and mistakes. He made him completely open his heart and willingly devote his life to him.” He then coldly continued, “Don’t think he’s a good person just because he can paint.”
“Don’t just blindly worship someone. Even your teacher has a shameless and dirty side to him.”
The more Lin Yuyan listened, the more he felt that something was wrong. He looked at Gu Yaoyang and asked, “Do you have a good opinion of Mr. Zeng?”
Gu Yaoyang lazily answered, “No. “
Lin Yuyan thought about it carefully, it seems that every time he mentioned Mr. Zeng, Gu Yaoyang always had the same attitude. He would ignore his words and keep on slandering the other. He hesitantly began, “You weren’t…”
Lin Yuyan hesitated for a few seconds, and tentatively asked, “You aren’t jealous of teacher, are you?”
Gu Yaoyang took out a cigarette, snorted, and replied, “Do I look sick? Why would I be jealous of him?”
He pressed the lighter too quickly and couldn’t light it up. He pressed it again and again with a frown on his face.
Lin Yuyan discovered the hidden emotion in his eyes. He slowly opened his mouth and asked with a smile, “You’re not actually jealous, are you? Is it because I always praise him?”
Gu Yaoyang said flatly: “Am I crazy? “
“Hahaha!” Lin Yuyan laughed even more happily, “You are and very childish too.”
Gu Yaoyang ignored him. He lit up his cigarette, turned around, and left. Lin Yuyan followed behind him, continuing to laugh. He had discovered this childish side of Gu Yaoyang, who could be jealous, coquettish, and unhappy just because he praised other people. He was very excited about these major discoveries and laughed at Gu Yaoyang as being childish all the way back home. But he got too carried away, and before he got home, he got pushed by Gu Yaoyang at a phone booth by the roadside.
“You, what are you doing?”
Gu Yaoyang’s strength was much stronger than usual. He pushed his knees away and grabbed his wrist. Lin Yuyan was a little flustered when he met his narrowed eyes. Just as he was about to speak, his mouth was blocked. He couldn’t get a word out.
Today’s kiss was a bit brutish, with a strong smell of tobacco lingering on the base of his tongue. He was also biting him as if he was punishing him.
Lin Yuyan was not very proficient at kissing, so after reluctantly responding a few times, he couldn’t keep up with Gu Yaoyang.
He felt as if he couldn’t stand up straight anymore. He thought to himself, ‘It’s so strange, it’s obviously just a kiss, why does it feel as if my waist is about to collapse?’
His mouth also hurts, but there’s no way to stop the kiss. He urgently needed to breathe and control the drool that was about to flow down from the corners of his mouth. Their lips and teeth kept on grinding together, it seemed as though it was on fire on the cold winter night.
Lin Yuyan clambered on Gu Yaoyang’s shoulders weakly, his feet even slightly off the ground as he half sat on his knees. He was speechless until Gu Yaoyang finally left his mouth and allowed him to breathe smoothly.
“Who’s childish?” Gu Yaoyang bit his ear and asked slightly threateningly.
Lin Yuyan refused to surrender, but his ear was ravaged by his mouth, and his whole body trembled every time they touched. There was even a subtle change of atmosphere in the booth, so he could only blush and shamefully surrender. He guiltily said, “I… I am…”
