w that little fatty, Lele, felt when his grandmother enforced his diet.

Although he was reluctant, he still filled a bowl with vegetable soup and, with a numb face, swallowed it quickly.

There was inevitably a trace of disgust in his eyebrows, but Zhu Luo, who was preoccupied with his own meal, obviously didn’t notice.

Eating and eating, time flew by.

Yu Le was disgusted by the vegetable soup and put down his tableware early after finishing a small bowl of it.

“Why aren’t you eating any more?”

He made an excuse, “Well…I had some instant noodles before work today, and I’m not too hungry now.
What I just had was enough for now.”

“You’re working?”

“Yeah.”

The two fell silent again.

This awkward silence had finally become a problem that needed to be addressed.

Yu Le took a sip of his water as he spoke up, “Zhu Luo, didn’t you say you wanted to talk to me?”

The young man’s eyes dimmed, “That’s right.
I did say that.” A certain determination flashed in his eyes, and the next second, he opened his mouth to ask, “A Yu, do you…like me?”

Yu Le choked on the mouthful of water he’d just swallowed, “Cough cough cough cough cough cough!” Although he already had a premonition, he truly hadn’t expected Zhu Luo to be so straightforward, “Ahem, Zhu Luo, why are you asking this?”

He really wanted to deny it, to say that no, he didn’t like him.

But at this time, in front of Zhu Luo, there was a sour emotion in his chest, and his emotions began to surge, trying to break through his defences and flood his mind.

He covered his chest irritably and wiped the water from his face as he shook his head in denial, “No, Zhu Luo, I don’t like you.”


“A Yu…” Zhu Luo’s expression changed as he heard these words, the answer to a question that he had been asking for so long, “Since you don’t like me, why don’t you dare to look me in the eyes as you say that?”

Exhaling violently, Yu Le raised his head to stare directly at Zhu Luo and repeated himself, “Zhu Luo, I do not like you.”

Being denied again, Zhu Luo felt an anger rise in his heart.
Becoming agitated, he demanded, “A Yu, since you don’t like me, why did you send me flowers every day?”

Flowers?

Yu Le frowned.

The flower delivery was exposed?

How?

He immediately thought of that annoying little boy; it must have been that he betrayed him.

“No, Zhu Luo, those flowers…” Yu Le wanted to explain but saw Zhu Luo’s burning eyes and realised there was no point in denying it.
He had been found out.
“Well, that was from me,” pursing his lips, he added, “I saw you throw them all away.”

“I’m sorry A Yu, if I had known they were from you from the start, I wouldn’t have.” Zhu Luo calmed his excited emotions as he explained, “I misunderstood and thought they were from someone I’d met at the concert.
Maybe a crazy fan.
The name you signed had thrown me off, but I know it was just a pseudonym because you weren’t sure how to face me.”

Yu Le froze.

At this moment, a white light flashed in his head.

What pseudonym? He obviously had signed Huo Annong’s initials.

Zhu Luo, why did you interpret the signature so casually?!

“That, actually…”

He had only delivered the flowers for Huo Annong, or maybe they were delivered to the wrong house by accident?

Each and every excuse that flashed through his mind fell flat.
His mouth closed as he let his words trail off.
Even he couldn’t convince himself that they made sense.

Seeing Yu Le’s twitching mouth as he struggled to explain, Zhu Luo felt more and more uncomfortable.

He was angry, sad, puzzled, and something more that he didn’t fully understand.


Finally, he couldn’t hold back and asked, “A Yu, if you don’t like me, why did you silently collect my things? And why…did you throw them all away?”

Yu Le was stunned once more in his seat.
He hadn’t even fully recovered from the first hit yet, and Zhu Luo threw the second one at him?!

Seeing this, Zhu Luo laughed self-deprecatingly, “Do you still remember that last time I heard that you were going to study abroad, so I came over to ask what was going on? You were packing up that day, you said you were throwing out trash…But I saw everything inside those bags.
It was all mine.”

Yu Le still couldn’t function well enough to form words.

This was really too unexpected; he was completely caught off guard.

Waiting silently for an answer, Zhu Luo lowered his eyes and continued talking, “Actually, it’s really impressive how many things you had collected.
That old music box, I’d even forgotten about it, but I think I gave it to you as a gift back when we were kids, right?”

Yu Le nodded slowly.

“There was also that photo album!” Zhu Luo couldn’t help laughing as he thought of it, “I was so surprised when I flipped through it, there were so many different expressions! You even had a photo from when we first met.
How could you just throw it all away? A Yu, you were really too ruthless.” With that, Zhu Luo’s expression faded, “A Yu, I’m sorry.
When I first saw that you threw that all out and even called it trash, I didn’t know how to face you.
It wasn’t until you came to my concert for the first time in so long that I realised our relationship had changed so much.
You’ve met new people without me, made new plans, and now it looks like you’re ready to move on from me too.” He smiled sadly, “A Yu, I’m not ready to let you leave me behind.
Please, were you really planning to cut off contact with me when you threw away all those things?”

The author has something to say:

Facing Zhu Luo’s questioning, Yu Le quickly began to think about countermeasures.

The CPU is loading…

Yu Le: Wait a minute! Wait a minute! Let me think about it again, just one more time!

Under CPU load…

Yu Le: Ahhhhh! How am I supposed to explain this?!

The CPU exploded…
