Ch.14 – It’s okay if the first love is a little dumb
PUBLISHED ON 28 June 2022
When Zhou MuHui came out, Qi Fang was staring at him, Xin Yi didn’t totally return to his senses, hugging his cat and sitting on the dining table, lowering his head distractedly.
He was a bit absent-minded, maybe it was because he was reminded of before, those days when he and Zhou MuHui just met, he told his mom he was in love, then every now and then he would run to find Zhou MuHui.
But Zhou MuHui was not always there, just like when he made an appointment with Zhou MuHui to find him at Wen Miao, but as a result, Zhou MuHui took him to the store, and turned around to leave.
Xin Yi didn’t react at first, until Zhou MuHui hadn’t returned after half an hour that he slowly lifted his head, and asked the master, where was Zhou MuHui.
He brought an ornament from home, it was a little rock that was left in a corner of the living room, Xin Yi remembered to find himself an excuse this time, but just as he handed out his excuse, the person he came to see wasn’t there.
“Went to his next job.”
Old man Bai looked at the rock with concentration, without even lifting his head, “Today is Thursday, I’m not even open, he went to do something else.”
Xin Yi then remembered what the other party told him, he was stunned, his eyes stared at the empty entrance, and was driven to distraction and curled up his hand.
He was in his third year this year, because Wen Miao closed at five o’clock, he didn’t even have lunch then he hurried his way there, he only had three hours, it was almost time to go back, but Zhou MuHui just showed his face for a while, he only saw the other party for ten or so minutes.
“Why, looking for him?”
Old man Bai asked.
Xin Yi lowered his head and dug his palms, and just hummed disappointed.
He was a bit upset, because he was looking forward to it last night, and wanted to come to see Zhou MuHui.
“Turned left after going out, the car wash station at the intersection of the street, he will stay there until night o’clock in the night.”
Old man Bai changed his posture and casually said.
Xin Yi was in a trance, staring at him blankly, then hurriedly turned to look at the entrance, and gripped the backpack in his arms tightly.
He hastily nodded, and couldn’t help but smile.
Xin Yi discovered Zhou MuHui’s new secret base, he sneakily went to find him after finishing appraising the rock, at that moment, Zhou MuHui was repairing someone’s car, the sun was very strong that day, and the man’s whole body went under the car, leaving only a pair of slim and long feet, Xin Yi looked at him without even blinking, until someone pushed him hard.
Xin Yi wasn’t standing steadily and fell to the ground in a daze.
Their movements weren’t small, Xin Yi heard the noises at that side suddenly stopped, then turned to look at him.
But Xin Yi hadn’t returned to his senses, because in the next second the person who pushed him squatted in front of him, then stretched his hand to pinch his face, sneered, and asked him, “Where does that kid come from?”
Xin Yi was scared silly, sitting on the ground and looking at him blankly.
“And quite good looking.”
The other party got closer to look at him, and almost half of his body drew closer, Xin Yi heard the people behind him burst into laughter, he was a bit confused, his cheeks were pinched until it was very painful, but he couldn’t push away the other party.
Then Zhou MuHui appeared.
The person on top of him was shoved away, that person stumbled, and called Zhou MuHui’s name fiercely, Xin Yi slowly felt scared, he hastily climbed up and stood behind Zhou MuHui, and gripped tightly the hem of the other party’s clothes.
Zhou MuHui said.
Xin Yi’s wrist was gripped by him, Zhou MuHui’s palm was very slippery, and there was also a heavy pungent smell, maybe it was machine oil, but Xin Yi oddly felt at ease.
“F*cking thing that was raised by a dog mother, who are you dragging.”
That person behind them insulted, Xin Yi’s wrist was held very tightly in an instant, but Xin Yi didn’t dare to cry out of pain, because Zhou MuHui’s eyes were really too cold, although he wore a mask, it didn’t hide the overwhelming chill that came from his body.
Xin Yi called him in a whisper, Zhou MuHui let out a hum but didn’t turn around.
When they walked to another alley, Zhou MuHui let go of him, there was an obvious red print on Xin Yi’s face, a big patch of red that was very obvious, Zhou MuHui frowned, staring at him, “Does it hurt?”
Xin Yi was a bit hurt, but he didn’t say it.
“It doesn’t hurt.”
Xin Yi put the wrist that was gripped by him behind his body, and carefully looked at him.
He felt that he caused trouble for Zhou MuHui, if he wasn’t there, they didn’t need to get into an argument.
“Put something on it when you get back.” Zhou MuHui said while looking at him, “Did you have some business with me?”
Xin Yi’s other half face became red, he was hesitant and couldn’t say anything, because he really couldn’t think of any other excuse.
“Go back, don’t come here again.”
But Zhou MuHui didn’t ask anymore, he only took a look at his handphone, and turned around to walk away.
His phone was very old, it seemed to be a flip cover style from many years ago, Xin Yi sneakily took a few looks at it, because he kinda wants Zhou MuHui’s WeChat.
But he didn’t dare to open his mouth, only obediently nodded, and bid goodbye to Zhou MuHui.
Xin Yi was nearly eaten alive by his deskmate because he came too late, his deskmate found him another excuse, and let him skip another period, but if he still didn’t return, the teacher would have surely called his parents.
Xin Yi apologized in a small voice, and sprawled on his desk in a daze, the other party asked him what was wrong, he quietly shook his head, and stared at his books without even blinking, and was concentrated on thinking about Zhou MuHui.
Xin Yi always thought that he was an obedient kid, but he lied that night, he called Yu TingYun and told him that he was going to eat with his deskmate, his deskmate hated that iron couldn’t become steel, but was shielding him on one side.
Yu TingYun didn’t think too much about it, and just said that he was going to get him when he was done, Xin Yi hurriedly shook his head, and said that he was going back by himself.
Both of them let out a sigh of relief when the call was hung up, but Xin Yi didn’t wait for the other party to ask him, and just put on his backpack and ran out.
Xin Yi turned around while running, “I’ll tell you tomorrow!”
He didn’t have much time and only wanted to leave it for Zhou MuHui.
At that time, it wasn’t like Xin Yi was not curious about what Zhou MuHui looked like, he secretly thought about it in his heart, was it because Zhou MuHui wasn’t very good-looking, or maybe disfigured, that he was always wearing a mask.
Xin Yi saw him so many times, but never saw him take it off.
But Xin Yi seemed to not really care, he schemed for many days, and found out that he could accept it no matter what Zhou MuHui looked like, Xin Yi thought about it embarrassedly, maybe he was what other people called a brainless romantic, the one he likes would be the most good looking.

But when he saw Zhou MuHui’s face without his mask, it took a long time before he reacted, he made a lot of guesses about how Zhou MuHui could be not good-looking, but he didn’t think that he could be that good-looking.
Xin Yi’s eyes were stuck, squatting in a corner and looking at him in a daze, he was frightened by what happened at noon, wandered a long time at the intersection of the alley but didn’t dare to go over, and was only waiting for Zhou MuHui to come out.
Maybe his gaze was too searing and too fascinated, so Zhou MuHui looked over there, Xin Yi had forgotten to hide, until the man furrowed his brows, turned sideways, and put his mask back.
But it was already too late, Xin Yi had already seen the scar on his face.
Zhou MuHui didn’t walk over like usual, but guarded against him, looking at Xin Yi with a cold glance, and even took a step back.
Xin Yi was sensitively aware that something was wrong, he didn’t know where that courage came from, staggeringly ran toward Zhou MuHui, grabbing him with force.
“Zhou, Zhou MuHui.” He looked up with a smile, “I’ve come to see you.”
“Little kid! It’s time to eat!”
The table in front of him was suddenly knocked on by someone, Xin Yi suddenly returned to his senses, and lifted his head to look at the other party blankly.
He still hasn’t woken up from his old memories, even the shadows became illusory, and the other party’s mouth opened and closed, Xin Yi thought in his mind about that cold, precautions, and familiar face.
Told him, “Get lost.”
A hand landed on his shoulder, that hand’s owner bent down to look at him, his face carried a constant alienation, but his eyes were soft.
The cat in his arms quietly slipped away, Xin Yi slowly blinked, then suddenly trembled, and hurriedly hugged the other party.
Xin Yi suddenly cried.
Big teardrops fell one after another, crying inexplicably and turbulently, Zhou MuHui didn’t even get the time to react, his natural reaction was to catch him.
Zhou MuHui’s voice was nervous, hurriedly lowered his head and comforted him.
The suppressed fear suddenly collapsed with the memory of the past, Xin Yi cried until he couldn’t breathe, buried himself in his embrace with flurry and uneasiness.
Xin Yi was afraid, afraid that he would really leave, afraid that it would really be just as he thought, when they weren’t married yet, he already planned to leave Xin Yi, then the like that Qi Fang has analyzed, does Zhou MuHui really loved him in those situations.
All these messy feelings were about to crush him till he collapsed, along with Zhou MuHui from the past who fiercely told him to get lost, and the numbers of it burst out.*
“Don’t be fierce with me…”
Xin Yi hugged him tightly, choked, and said, “I like you, don’t be fierce with me.”
Don’t leave me.
