The process of turning Gu Yaoyang into a professional player was quite simple. He wasn’t a regular coach at first, and everything he did was only a matter of Mr. Zeng’s words. 

But the content of his work didn’t change much. He still coached the players and trained himself along the way. Now, he returned to his dormitory even later than before. 

Lin Yuyan had also been busy recently. He had the most fulfilling summer vacation ever. He would work with Mr. Zeng every day to prepare for the art exhibition, and at night he had to prepare his pieces to show his father the fruits of his hard work. He was improving at painting, and the foundation he had laid over the years hadn’t gone to waste. With his teacher’s careful guidance, he could pave his path to fulfill his dreams of becoming an artist. 

“In a few years, you’ll be able to hold your own small exhibition.” Standing behind Lin Yuyan, Mr. Zeng nodded with satisfaction and continued with a smile, “Sure enough, you’re an apprentice I personally taught, so your skill level will be different from the rest.”

Lin Yuyan’s gratitude toward Mr. Zeng couldn’t be described with just words. He bowed several times to his teacher to express his gratefulness before leaving his house and heading to the club. 

Gu Yaoyang finished his training at around ten o’clock in the evening. He changed his clothes and went downstairs when he saw Lin Yuyan sitting in the lobby on the first floor waiting for him. The black lady at the front desk hadn’t gotten off work yet, she had her arms crossed around her chest and was chatting with him, “G is very strong. If he participates in professional competitions, I would be his most loyal fan.” 

Lin Yuyan was happy with her words and nodded as he replied, “He is really great. Mr. Zeng said that nobody could beat him in a professional competition.”

The black lady said, “The boss is right. G’s overall strength should be the strongest in the circle. Although he hasn’t participated in a formal competition, I know he will win. But when the time comes, you have to be careful.” 

Lin Yuyan asked, “Be careful of what?” 

The black lady winked at him ambiguously, “He’s a handsome young man full of charm, there would be many suitors chasing after him. I could only imagine how many people would be fascinated by G when he enters the ring. He’s perfect, every inch of his muscles looks as if they were carved by a skilled sculptor’s knife. Not to mention his eyes, his deep eyes are like beautiful black gemstones. They’re the most beautiful eyes I’ve ever seen. He’s very suitable to stand in the spotlight for the people to see.” 

“So, you’ll have to be careful Lin. Don’t let him be taken away by those people.”

Lin Yuyan took a sip of his coffee and confidently said, “He likes me, he won’t get stolen away by other people.” 

Gu Yaoyang happened to hear these words when he arrived. He rubbed his hair affectionately and felt very relieved, but that wasn’t the case later that night.

The two of them had been sleeping separately since they came back from the small fishing village. After all, at the age of seventeen and eighteen, it is very easy to have a minor incident that sparks a war. Lin Yuyan was not yet an adult, and Gu Yaoyang also respected him. Every time they kissed, he would always stop at that point.

The two tacitly agreed to this behavior. They would hug and kiss for a while at night before going back to their rooms to sleep. Gu Yaoyang lay down on his bed to sleep, but Lin Yuyan thought about the black lady’s words over and over again and had a hard time sleeping that night. 

He will start school in another two or three days, and after that, he’ll spend a whole year in high school as a third-year student, and they would not be able to meet each other until winter vacation at the earliest. But during the winter vacation, Gu Yaoyang’s preliminaries will also start by then. So there’s probably not much time to spend together. When he finally finished his studies and graduated from high school, by then, Gu Yaoayang would have finished finals. He would definitely become a hit if he won the championships.

Wouldn’t the black lady’s words become a prophecy if it went like that? Then how could they adopt pets and parrots and live in a house together? 

Lin Yuyan jumped off the bed and walked around the room with his hand holding his chin. He lifted his pajamas and pinched his dry and soft stomach before gritting his teeth as he made a bold decision. 

Gu Yaoyang had always been sensitive to sound. As soon as he closed his eyes, he heard the door of the room next to him open. He thought that Lin Yuyan was going to the bathroom to relieve himself, but then he heard the sound of running water. It sounded as if he wanted to take a bath.

Didn’t he already take a bath when they got back from the club? And it was already half past twelve. What was he going to do? 

Gu Yaoyang thought for a while but didn’t plan to bother him. He laid on the bed with an unlit cigarette dangling in his mouth and felt a bit uncomfortable. It’s hard for him to quit smoking, but he had been strictly smoking three or four cigarettes a day recently, so it should be okay for him to reward himself for his discipline, right?

The thought of Lin Yuyan’s carefree expression made his mouth curl up into a smile. Just as he was about to throw away the cigarette, he heard someone coming out of the bathroom and knocking on his door.

“What’s the matter?” Gu Yaoyang asked as he opened the door, inhaling a strong fragrance that streamed toward him. There were no perfumes at home. Except for the soap, which was a shower gel Lin Yuyan bought himself, there was no other item that could give out this scent. If he remembered correctly, it should be an orange-scented shower gel, and it was usually faint, but now Lin Yuyan smelled like he fell into a pit of orange. 

Gu Yaoyang squinted his eyes and crossed his arms around his chest as he looked at the person standing in front of him. 

Lin Yuyan’s hair was wet, his face was a little red, and he was wearing the black shirt that he stole from Gu Yaoyang a few days ago. He’d worn the shirt as pajamas before, and it looked too big and loose around his body. Today, the two buttons on the top of the shirt were unbuttoned, revealing his white collarbone. Gu Yaoyang didn’t even know if he was even wearing a boxer underneath his shirt. He could only see his two thin milky white legs and bare feet standing on the ground. His toes were pink and white, unconsciously squirming around the ground. 

He had also worn his shirt like this before, but his neckline was buttoned up, which was completely different from today’s look. 

“You- You haven’t slept yet?” Lin Yuyan asked as he poked his head around to look inside his bedroom. 

Gu Yaoyang asked back, “Why haven’t you slept yet?”

Lin Yuyan thought for a while before lowering his head and answering him, “I- I’m a little cold.” 

“Cold?” Gu Yaoyang raised his eye at just the right angle to see the thermometer fixed on the wall. He raised his chin and read the temperature, “Indoors, 28 degrees.” 

“Ah?” Lin Yuyan turned his head. After living for so many days, he didn’t notice the item hanging on the wall. He lightly coughed and switched excuses, “Well- I’m a little scared.” He attempted to squeeze into Gu Yaoyang’s room as he said that, but Gu Yaoyang blocked him from entering the door, not giving him any chance to enter his room. 

“What are you afraid of?”

Lin Yuyan answered, “Afraid of the dark.”

Gu Yaoyang said, “You’ve been sleeping in the dark for more than ten days by now, and you’re only afraid of it now?” 

“I just had a nightmare and got afraid of it now. Can’t I be afraid now?” Lin Yuyan stuck his neck in and took advantage of the little gap between Gu Yaoyang and the doorframe. He almost succeeded in breaking inside but got trapped by Gu Yaoyang’s waist. He looked as the other asked with a smile, “Say, what are you trying to do dressing up like this?” 

Lin Yuyan said, “You- can’t you see?”

Gu Yaoyang said: “I can’t see it.”

“Don’t pretend to be stupid. I-  I have been so obvious.”

A few days ago, he was constantly shy and flustered because of their physical affection. But today, he suddenly took the initiative. There must be a reason for this change. 

Gu Yaoyang thought for a while before coming to the conclusion that it had something to do with his conversation with the black lady. 

He was so confident in front of those outsiders but was actually insecure when he came back? 

Gu Yaoyang knew what he was thinking. He hugged him and threw him directly on his bed. Lin Yuyan really wasn’t wearing anything underneath his shirt. Since he was sitting on the bed, his shirt couldn’t fully cover his lower parts, so he had to stretch the hem of his shirt with his hands as the roots of his ears quickly turned red in embarrassment. 

He was obviously not ready for this, but for himself cut off all means of escape. 

“Is it because of what the front desk lady said?” Gu Yaoyang stood at the end of the bed and asked as he leaned against the wall. 

Lin Yuyan hesitated for a while, then nodded.

Gu Yaoyang raised his eyebrows at his answer. He unconsciously took out a cigarette and lit it as he continued, “So, you dressed like this to seduce me, climb into my bed, and make me take responsibility?” 

Lin Yuyan blinked, “You- you How do you know?”

“Idiot.” Gu Yaoyang exhaled a ring of smoke, his voice was a little hoarse as he said that. 

Lin Yuyan’s legs were still bare, hanging at the edge of his bed, and he began to feel embarrassed for being so exposed, “Then what should I do? I’m not very good. If you’re going to be pursued by many people in the future, I’m afraid…” 

“Lin Yuyan.” Gu Yaoyang glanced at him, interrupting his sentence, and rubbed his brows, “I’ll only say this once, so I hope you’ll go find a notebook later to write this down.” 

Lin Yuyan also knew that his behavior was incorrect, but he couldn’t think of a better solution. He could only obediently listen to Gu Yaoyang attentively. 

“I want to be responsible to you. Even if it’s only holding hands and kissing your mouth, I will be responsible for you to the end, and I will love you forever.” 

“But if I don’t want to, even if I already f*cked you thousands of times before, I won’t have any extra feelings for you.”

“So, you don’t need to resort to these methods to hold on to me, restrain me, or lower yourself like this lest I get stolen away by some other people.” 

“I like you now, and I will like you for the rest of my life.” 

“So it doesn’t matter whether you’re great or not, whether you’re excellent or not.”
