When he arrived at Sheng Da, he parked the car just outside the entrance. Shaded by a large tree, the black car seemed to blend into the darkness of the night.
He dialed Xia Rou’s number again. When she answered this time, her background was much quieter.
“Mn, mn, I’ve already left. We’ll be at school soon,” she said.
He waited inside the car, smoking. Translated by The Novelst
He didn’t know why he had come to the school. Xia Rou was very obedient and told him that she would return soon. She would surely keep her word.
She wasn’t the kind of girl who didn’t know how to take care of herself. Though she was weak, she wouldn’t let anyone take advantage of her.
And no matter what, she had stayed by his side for nearly four years. He watched over her as she grew and if she was no different to that girl in the club – defending the one who hit her, he would write his name, Cao Yang, upside down instead.
Actually the alcohol earlier had gotten to his head. Now that it had passed, he calmed down.
But since he was already here and Xia Rou was on the way, he thought he would wait and confirm she came back safely. Only then would he leave.
He stretched his hand out the window to flick the butt off.
The school was very quiet. Even though it was the weekend, nobody was outside the entrance at this time of night. Only the guardhouse and the lights at the entrance were illuminated.
Only a little later Cao Yang saw a taxi arrive at the school entrance. The car door opened and the first person to get out was Wei Qi.
Cao Yang regularly saw his photo in Xia Rou’s phone, so he couldn’t be wrong.
He also got out of his car, ready to give these two little fellows a lesson. Things like bringing Xia Rou to a bar to drink – he would let that kid know that without his permission, it was definitely a no no!
Cao Yang shut the car door and when he turned his head back again, he was stunned.
Xia Rou was out of the car. The taxi had left. Outside the antique gates of Sheng Da, it was just the two of them.
They were very close to each other… too close.
Wei Qi held Xia Rou’s hand and looked gently at her and spoke. Xia Rou had her head slightly raised and looked at him with a smile.
From twenty or thirty meters away, Cao Yang could sense the sweet romance between the young couple.
He saw Wei Qi touch Xia Rou’s face, and not only did she not avoid him, her eyes were even filled with joy. She accepted the touch.
Wei Qi’s gaze as he looked at Xia Rou was so gentle that it nearly overflowed.
Cao Yang then watched Wei Qi slowly, bit by bit, lowered his head… and kissed Xia Rou on the lips.
That pair of lips that were delicate like flower petals, that occasionally appeared in his dreams…
Cao Yang knew that this day would come.
The young girl would grow into a young lady, and the young lady would experience things with a man and become a woman. This was the best time for a girl, and the beginning of her evolution from a young girl to a woman.
Cao Yang knew that as a big brother, he should back off and give her some space for her to grow and mature.
But he couldn’t control the blood surging inside his body, wanting to explode.
At this time, he could no longer deceive himself. Those reveries, the dreams, and the desires that came to his mind…!
When a person wanted to deceive himself, sometimes it was easy, but sometimes it was hard.
He didn’t know when it was but he felt like he owned Xia Rou. He thought he could stay at her side, like a father or a brother, but he could no longer deceive himself.
Inside his heart, he desired her like a man to a woman!
He stood under the shadow of the tree, looking at Xia Rou being cradled softly in another man’s arms, watching her be kissed.
He had lived for over thirty years and never before had he suffered like this.
When the kiss ended, the young couple revealed shy expressions and giggled as they looked at each other.
They pushed together and whispered in each other’s ears. In the end, they held hands and stood at the roadside to flag a taxi.
Xia Rou watched Wei Qi get into the taxi, waving him goodbye. When the taxi left, only then did she turn around to go to her room.
A sweet smile lingered on her face.
She heard a familiar voice call her name: “Xia Rou.”
She turned around in surprise. “Big brother?”
Cao Yang stood under the tree in his black shirt. He was entirely dark in the night and only his pitch-black eyes were there burning with flame.
She didn’t notice it in the darkness of the night.
She ran happily to him and asked, “Why are you here?”
Then she remembered she had just been kissing Wei Qi at the entrance. Thinking that Cao Yang might have seen them, she felt suddenly embarrassed.
Though in reality both her lives totaled to nearly 29 years, and she regularly mumbled before Cao Yang that she was already an adult, in truth… her favorite thing to do was be a little girl that didn’t grow and stayed by his side.
She felt very uneasy being seen by Cao Yang.
She wanted to ask if he had seen but it was so awkward that she didn’t know where to start.
Just as she hesitated, Cao Yang reached out suddenly after staring at her the entire time.
He pinched her chin and lowered his head…
She smelled the faint scent of alcohol.
His strong arms tightened around her.
Her lips were mashed. by The Novelst
Xia Rou opened her eyes, unable to comprehend what was happening.
Though it was a familiar scent, and even if it usually made her feel at ease and secure.. .
Now it overwhelmed her and suffocated her, like he was trying to take away all her air.
Until the man could no longer be satisfied with just her lips, his tongue pushing past her clenched teeth to the moist space within…
Xia Rou finally reacted.
She could only feel her head buzzing.
It was a mess!
Everything was messed up!
