Chapter 58: Actually, I’m A Guy
Naturally, Su Jian didn’t know any Lu Chenghe. However, he had to act like he had lost his memories. At a loss, he said, “Sorry, I really don’t remember. Are you my friend?”
“Friend?” The man chewed on that word and laughed wryly, “We are not just…”
The man had yet to finish his sentence when Su Jian suddenly exclaimed, “Please excuse me, I have to get home! Let’s meet again!” A taxi was currently driving over. The time now was when most people were getting off work and it was also raining. Therefore, it would be difficult for Su Jian to take the bus. Su Jian finally saw an empty taxi. Naturally, he would not let it go. Hence, Su Jian bid his farewell hurriedly.
The man held the umbrella and stood in the rain. As he watched Su Jian enter the car and disappear in the rain, a faint light quietly flashed past his eyes.
Su Jian got home. The more he thought about it, the more he felt that the man earlier looked familiar. However, he just couldn’t remember where he had seen him before.
It was only when Su Jian switched on his computer and came across a file coincidentally that his eyes suddenly lit up. That’s right, he remembered where he had seen that person before. It was in sister Su’s hard disk! Su Jian’s heart jumped. Opening the file named “photo” in the computer, he clicked on the file named “him”.
As expected, the man’s face was inside every photo in the file. In most of the photos, Su Jian was either looking gentle or shy or smiling sweetly by his side.
Shit! It was actually her boyfriend! Su Jian was shocked.
When he first saw the photos, he was worried about what to do if sister Su’s love came looking for him. However, after he thought about it, sister Su was already married to An Yize. He was afraid the two of them could no longer be together. Additionally, this person never appeared afterwards. Thus, Su Jian tossed this person to the back of his head. Who would have thought he would actually meet the ex-boyfriend today!
Su Jian stared at the screen which showed photos of sister Su with the man called Lu Chenghe upsetly and sniffed his nose. The last two days were cold. He didn’t wear much and had slight cold symptoms. Today, he happened to be drenched by the rain. Therefore, his cold became worse. Su Jian kept feeling as if his snot was flowing out.
Pulling out a tissue, Su Jian was going to blow his nose when he suddenly heard a voice behind him. “Who is he?”
Su Jian was startled. Turning around hurriedly, he saw An Yize whom he didn’t know had come in, standing behind him.
Su Jian couldn’t take it and sniffed his nose again, his voice a little hoarse due to the cold. “When did you come back?”
An Yize gave him a glance. Then, he looked back at the photos on the screen again, his brows gradually knitting.
Su Jian looked at what he was looking at. “I don’t know this person too. I don’t remember at all.” Hesitating for a moment, he added, “However, I saw him on my way home today.”
An Yize’s mood sank. “What did he say?”
Su Jian shook his head. “He didn’t say much. It’s just that he was shocked when I said I lost my memories and don’t remember him.”
An Yize’s mood sank further.
Su Jian did not notice at all. Closing the photos, he started scrolling through the forum.
However, his cold seemed to be getting worse. His entire airway was becoming uncomfortable. Ever since his rebirth, Su Jian had never gotten such a cold. Thus, it was the first time Su Jian realized that when this body got a cold, not only would he have a runny nose, he would actually tear up involuntarily as well!
Su Jian who was feeling unwell gradually lost his mood to scroll through the forum. He could only stuff in his earpiece and lie on the sofa depressingly.
When An Yize came out of the shower room and looked towards the sofa, he was stunned stiff. The person on the sofa was lying face up on the pillow, her pair of eyes gently closed. He felt a heavy sense of worry and weakness as he watched two transparent streams of tears were flowing silently down her pair of closed eyes.
Recalling Su Jian’s appearance as he sat and stared blankly at the screen which showed her leaning against the man, as well as her action of using the tissue to wipe and her slightly hoarse voice, An Yize’s heart felt irritated.
Sitting beside Su Jian, An Yize’s brows were tightly knitted. With a heavy voice, he asked, “Why are you crying?”
Crying? Su Jian opened his eyes and just happened to meet An Yize’s hands which were stretched over him. An Yize rubbed away the tears at the corner of his eyes gently and cautiously.
Su Jian just realized that his tears had flowed out again. Seeing An Yize eyes narrowing upon him, he felt embarrassed. Removing his earpiece, he defended himself, “I didn’t cry!”
An Yize didn’t say anything.
Su Jian saw that An Yize didn’t seem to believe him. With a move of his heart, he suddenly had the thought to prank An Yize. Thus, without further explanation, he glanced at An Yize silently. Then, he lowered his eyes. Acting sad, he sniffed his nose.
An Yize became more irritated in his heart. However, he still looked calm on the surface. With a heavier look, he asked, “Just what is going on?”
The area around Su Jian’s eyes was red. He said faintly, “Yize. Actually, I remember everything.”
An Yize was stunned, an unconcealable surprise could be seen in his eyes.
Su Jian saw that he took the bait and felt very happy in his heart. However, his face didn’t reveal anything and was still looking sad. “Actually, the first time we met wasn’t at the bar. Even before that, I already met you before.”
An Yize looked at him deeply. “When was it?”
Su Jian pinched himself secretly, trying his best not to laugh out loud. In order to cover up himself, he even brought his hands up to wipe off his tears. “A long, long time ago. At that time, I was still a guy.”
An Yize: “……”
Su Jian became more and more immersed in the role. “After I met you, I could never forget you again. However, I knew that you would never accept me. Because you are definitely a man as straight as a pole, how could you like me? Therefore, for your sake, I went to change my gender.”
An Yize: “…Then?”
Hmm? Su Jian sniffed his nose, “Then, then we married. Now that I’ve remembered everything, you…can you still accept me?”
An Yize asked calmly, “You’re a guy?”
Su Jian nodded his head. “Yes! A man that has a flat top and a protruding bottom just like you!”
An Yize’s mouth twitched slightly. “You like me and changed your gender for me?”
Su Jian nodded his head vigorously. “That’s right! Yize, now that you know everything, can… you still accept me?” After he finished speaking, he even purposely pouted his lip and moved towards An Yize for a kiss.
Initially, he had thought that An Yize would avoid him in disgust. However, he never expected that An Yize would only look at his eyes silently and he even calmly said a sentence. “Accept. Why would I not accept?” After saying so, he smoothly kissed him.
Su Jian pushed him away with his hands immediately. However, he didn’t expect that An Yize had already held the back of his head with his hand and pushed him down onto the sofa.
Su Jian was pressed down and they kissed for a good while. When he finally found an opening, he shouted loudly, “Stop! I have something to say!”
An Yize raised his body slightly, looking at Su Jian from above.
As he gasped for air, Su Jian said, “Alright. What I said earlier was actually a lie!”
An Yize replied calmly, “It’s okay. Even if you’re a guy, I won’t mind as long as you are a woman now.”
Su Jian: “……” Your mom! You said you weren’t a homosexual!
An Yize rubbed the corner of Su Jian’s eyes gently, his eyes furrowing. “Did you cry because of this just now?”
Su Jian replied,” Of course not. I already told you that it was a lie.” Feeling that his eyes were becoming hot and another batch of tears were going to flowing out, he coordinated with his tears and acted sad. “Actually, it’s because of another matter.”
An Yize asked, “What matter?”
Su Jian answered, “Two days ago, I bought a lottery ticket.”
An Yize waited for him to continue quietly.
Su Jian: “When the results came out today, I actually won! Five million!”
An Yize: “Then?”
Su Jian’s eyes redden and he let his tears flow down sadly. “But, I can’t find the lottery ticket…”
An Yize: “……”
Su Jian saw his expressionless face and mocked, “I thought that you would at least console me for a bit!”
An Yize asked, “How should I console you?”
Su Jian thought for a moment. “For example, with a wave of your hand, you fill up a cheque with five million and throw it over, saying ‘No need to find it’ or something.”
An Yize: “…Did mom make you watch a television drama with her again?”
Su Jian admitted defeat and sighed, “You’re not biting the bait at all. It’s so boring joking around with you!”
An Yize studied Su Jian carefully and knitted his brows. “Is it… a cold?”
“Yup!” Su Jian laid on the sofa lazily. “I have a runny nose and I’m also tearing up as well. It’s best for you to stay away from me or you may get a cold as well!”
An Yize didn’t say anything and only went to search the drawer. Then, he brought the medicine over. “I will get you a cup of water.”
Su Jian was holding the water with his left hand and the medicine with his right hand. He said exhaustedly, “Ugh, I don’t want to take the medicine!”
An Yize replied calmly by his side. “No, your cold is quite serious. You need to take the medicine three times a day, no skipping.”
Su Jian: “……”
Indeed, after taking the medicine for two days, Su Jian’s cold slowly disappeared.
Today, when Su Jian came out after his bath, he took out his phone and was ready to continue playing. However, he suddenly realized that wallpaper on his phone that he was so familiar with had actually disappeared.
Shit! Who changed my Naruto?
Su Jian stared at the screen which was showed a picture of him with An Yize. Turning around, he was very sure the culprit was An Yize who on the phone on the terrace.
An Yize put down his phone and saw Su Jian shoving the phone screen in front of his eyes. “Did you change it?”
An Yize admitted calmly, “Yes. Since we are a couple now, we should naturally be like other couples and take note of these details.”
Su Jian felt aggrieved in his heart but An Yize’s reasons were quite legitimate so he couldn’t think of a reason to refute with for the moment. Thus he said, “Then, you should at least change the photo. I don’t like this one!”
An Yize glanced at the phone screen. He asked calmly, “Why?”
Su Jian thought in his heart: Because I don’t want to see your face the moment I use my phone! And the face is so big! However, on the surface, he said, “Because… your side face photo looks better!” In order make it look sound more real, he added another word: “Really!”
An Yize silently browsed through his phone to look for a photo.
Su Jian caught a glance of An Yize’s wallpaper, he asked in surprise, “When did you take that photo?” An Yize’s wallpaper wasn’t a photo of the two of them but a photo of himself alone. Additionally, it was a photo of him sleeping!
An Yize answered, “You drooled when you slept yesterday, so I took a photo as evidence.”
Su Jian’s face heated up. Next, he asked angrily, “Where was there any saliva?”
An Yize gave him a glance. “All the saliva was on me.”
Su Jian: “……”
Although they had finally changed his wallpaper, looking at the wallpaper which showed An Yize lowering his eyes to look at sister Su’s side face, Su Jian still felt awkward.
This pose seems too coquettish… Su Jian’s mouth twitched. He didn’t want to admit the faint jealousy he felt.
Su Jian was about to look at some photos of cute girls to wash his eyes when he suddenly heard An Yize asking inadvertently, “Jian Jian, what do you usually like to do?”
Su Jian turned around and asked in surprise, “Why are you suddenly asking about this?”
An Yize replied, “Nothing much. I just thought about it all of a sudden. We are now a couple. Naturally, we should know more about each other so that we are prepared for unexpected situations.”
Su Jian asked, “Didn’t you say to discover it yourself before?”
An Yize looked at him. “I know you like manga, plastic models, the ‘Three Little Bears’,” pausing for a moment, he added, “and my second brother.”
Su Jian said smilingly, “You’re wrong. I like more than just these.”
An Yize replied calmly, “Oh?”
Su Jian replied proudly, “I also like to read.” For example, reading posts, glance through microblogs and browsing the forums.
“I like technology very much too.” Technology affected games. Games were proof of technology.
An Yize asked, “Anything else?”
“Ugh,” Su Jian thought for a moment and said, “I also like to travel.” Just that I haven’t got to enjoy it personally.
“Travel?” An Yize’s heart moved. “I remembered you mentioned that you will have a few days off work soon.”
“Yeah. The school is having a sports competition and I can choose whether I want to go or not. Afterwards, it will be the weekend. Adding all the days up, there’s around four to five days of holiday.” Su Jian looked towards An Yize and came to a sudden realisation. “Are you saying that we should go traveling?”
An Yize asked, “Do you wish to go?”
“You sure have some great ideas!” Su Jian recalled that he had previously saw an introduction of cliff roads on the forum and said in high spirits, “I want to go to Mount Hua!”
An Yize who was silently considering that maybe he could go according to Ji Mingfei’s strategy of “do what she likes and add in a timely confession” and confess at Aegean seaside: “……”
Author’s Notes: Uncle An who is provoked by love rival after love rival is finally going to confess. This time, it is a real confession!
Yup! – In case it looked like Su Jian said it happily, Su Jian said this while feeling annoyed.
