“What are you thinking about?”
Qi Yue came back to his senses and saw Ying Jincheng’s caring eyes. He took a deep breath and jumped up and down on the spot three times.
“Huh…” Then he exhaled the breath held in his mouth.
Ying Jincheng looked at Qi Yue in a daze, obviously caught off guard by the situation before him.
Qi Yue said a little embarrassed after he finished jumping, “I am coming down-to-earth, I feel better, hehe…”
Ying Jincheng reached out and patted Qi Yue’s shoulder, “How many down-to-earth jumps? Well, this is the first time I’ve seen this novel way.”
Qi Yue pouted his lips, and actually replied, “There is a first time for everything.”
After speaking, the two of them looked at each other and smiled. Qi Yue thought, it turned out that Ying Jincheng is not so difficult to get along with.
In the kitchen, Qi Yue cooked lunch as usual. He came earlier today and returned to the villa before Qi Mingyu. Aunt Liu saw Qi Yue come back and left directly. Her grandson is still waiting for someone to take care of him.
At this time, Qi Yue and Qi Mingfan were left in the villa. Fortunately, Qi Mingfan was obedient, and Qi Yue was able to cook with confidence.
When Qi Mingyu came back, Qi Yue’s hand holding food paused because he saw the girl who came in behind Qi Mingyu-Shang Han.
“Hello.” Shang Han saw Qi Yue, greeted him generously, and then looked at Qi Mingyu, “Brother Mingyu, this is…”
“Qi Yue.” Qi Mingyu glanced at Qi Yue and he said, “He is Mingfan’s favorite brother.”
Qi Yue was startled and gave Qi Mingyu a surprised look.
“Oh, that’s the case.” Shang Han nodded and told Qi Yue with a smile, “I am Shang Han, you shouldn’t know me yet, I am brother Mingyu’s…” Then, Shang Han looked at Qi Mingyu with shy eyes.
“Friend.” Qi Mingyu interrupted Shang Han lightly.
Shang Han paled, biting her lip, but didn’t say anything to refute.
Qi Yue hurriedly said, “Hello, nice to meet you.”
Shang Han smiled and turned to look at Qi Mingfan, “Brother Mingyu, let me play with Mingfan?”
“No, Mingfan is not used to contact with strangers.” Qi Mingyu refused without thinking.
“Brother Mingyu…” At this time, Shang Han could no longer maintain her expression, and looked at Qi Mingyu aggrievedly, “Aunt Qi, she let me…”
Qi Mingyu stared at Shang Han and asked her to finish her sentence. After she couldn’t go on, he said every word clearly, “Don’t use my mother to pressure me, and don’t use my mother as an excuse. I can give you a bit of face outside, but please remember what I said during the first meeting we had.”
Shang Han was taken aback, as if she was thinking of something, and her lips trembled and said, “I…I know, but…”
“Okay, Mom asked you to stay for lunch. Let’s go after lunch.” Qi Mingyu turned and sat on the sofa, indicating that there was no need to continue.
Qi Yue was stunned by the incident, staying where he was at, at a loss. Shang Han did not speak and the whole atmosphere froze.
“No, I’m leaving now.” Shang Han suddenly said, and then left without looking back.
After Shang Han left, Qi Mingyu relaxed his body on the sofa and sighed and said, “Shang Han is a good girl.”
Qi Yue looked at Qi Mingyu and didn’t understand what he meant by suddenly saying this. Since he thinks Shang Han is a good girl, why…
Qi Mingyu looked up at Qi Yue, “It’s a pity that I can’t give her love. It should be said that now I can’t give love to anyone.”
Qi Yue couldn’t help taking a step back. Qi Mingyu looked at him with a deep gaze, as if he could see through his heart. Qi Yue smiled a little flustered, “Then what, are you hungry? Mingfan should be hungry too, I’ll go serve the food.” Then he fled to the kitchen like running from the plague.
Qi Yue put his hands on the counter, feeling that his heartbeat was a little bit fast, Qi Mingyu’s eyes made him at a loss, what did he mean? Does it mean? How can it be? He also showed something, and what does it mean to be unable to love…
At the meal everyone had their own thoughts. Qi Yue left immediately after he cleaned up the dishes. He walked in a hurry and didn’t even see Qi Mingfan’s longing eyes. Now he spends more and more time with Qi Mingfan, it is no longer limited to two hours because this child is too pitiful. Qi Yue is also willing to spend time with him.
After Qi Yue left, Qi Mingyu picked up Qi Mingfan and sat on the sofa, lowered his head and asked, “Do you like Brother Qi Yue very much?”
Qi Mingfan looked up at his brother, holding his small hand and nodding obediently.
“Then what if… what if your brother wants to change the person to accompany you?” Qi Mingyu asked.
Qi Mingfan immediately shook his head, grabbing Qi Mingyu’s shirt with his little hand, a little anxious.
Seeing Qi Mingfan’s appearance, Qi Mingyu sighed and touched Qi Mingfan’s head, “I’ll talk about it later.”
As the winter vacation approached, Qi Yue ran out of the school in thick clothes. The weather was getting colder and colder, especially here in the north, the cold wind was bleak and cut like a knife. Qi Yue had to take a few trips to Qi Mingyu’s villa. When he arrived in the villa, his hands and feet were so cold that he often took a long time to warm up before he came over. He didn’t dare approach Qi Mingfan because he didn’t want to pass the cold breath to him and let him catch a cold.
But today, as soon as Qi Yue left the school gate, he saw Qi Mingyu leaning against the car–a dark woolen coat with long and slender legs that could not be covered. His whole body was like a clothes rack, standing beside the car, as if he was a model. He attracted the attention of people around, not to mention the priceless sports car behind him, which was a typical symbol of wealth and handsomeness.
“Get in the car.” Qi Mingyu said concisely when he saw Qi Yue come out.
“Huh?” Qi Yue opened his mouth blankly, and the cold wind poured into his mouth, his whole body was frozen silly.
Qi Mingyu sighed helplessly and made a please gesture, “Let’s go back together.”
“Oh.” Qi Yue subconsciously sat in the car following Qi Mingyu’s movements, and the moment the heating poured into his body, his spirit recovered.
Qi Mingyu opened the door on the other side, sat down, and suddenly turned sideways and got close to Qi Yue.
Qi Yue froze suddenly, his back straightened, leaning on the back of the chair, and he didn’t dare to look at Qi Mingyu approaching him – so close that he could even see the eyelashes on Qi Mingyu’s face.
Qi Mingyu pulled the seat belt and fastened Qi Yue with one hand on Qi Yue’s ear.
The heart that Qi Yue had just let go of, instantly grabbed him, and looked at Qi Mingyu in a daze.
Qi Mingyu looked at Qi Yue for a long while, and suddenly laughed jokingly, “What’s the matter with you? You seem to be very nervous.”
“No…No.” Qi Yue shyly said, his hands on his legs seeping sweat.
Qi Mingyu raised the corners of his mouth and moved closer to Qi Yue again. Qi Yue took a breath of fright, but he couldn’t get back, so he could only squeeze his body as much as possible. Of course, this was definitely his illusion- out of body or something…
Qi Mingyu raised his eyebrows, a smile flashed in his eyes, and finally lifted his body.
Qi Yue quietly breathed a sigh of relief, but couldn’t help but secretly look at Qi Mingyu – I don’t know why, Qi Mingyu seems to like to tease him recently, as if he can entertain Qi Mingyu every time.
Their relationship has eased a lot.
But, he doesn’t know why, Qi Yue always feels a little disharmony, and a little at a loss.
Coming to the villa without a word, Qi Yue saw a figure standing by the gate before he even entered.
“Why are you here?” Qi Mingyu stopped the car.
Qi Yue followed Qi Mingyu, wondering if he should leave first.
“Brother Mingyu.” Shang Han said while holding the bag in her hand, biting her lip, “Brother Mingyu, this is the cake I made by myself. You and Mingfan can taste it.”
Qi Mingyu directly refused, “No, Mingfan and I don’t like sweets.” After saying this, Qi Mingyu wanted to turn around and leave.
Shang Han grabbed Qi Mingyu’s arm and said almost imploringly, “Brother Mingyu, are you still angry? Because I mentioned Aunt Qi last time, I didn’t mean anything else, and… and I really like you.”
Qi Yue looked at Shang Han’s blushing face, and suddenly felt a little sad and disappointed. He stood behind Qi Mingyu and lowered his head, thinking that he might even have the qualifications to stand beside Qi Mingyu to confess. No-Qi Mingyu likes girls.
Qi Mingyu obviously didn’t expect Shang Han to confess suddenly. Seeing Shang Han’s flushed face and hands, Qi Mingyu paused, and pulled Shang Han away from holding his arm, his tone softened. “I think, you haven’t forgotten what I said before.”
Shang Han had red eyes, “I know, but, Brother Mingyu, how do you know if you don’t try? Didn’t Sister Wen before…”
“Don’t mention her to me!” Qi Mingyu suddenly became irritable, and his face was unprecedentedly ugly.
Not only Shang Han was taken aback, even Qi Yue was taken aback, staring at Qi Mingyu in a daze.
Qi Mingyu also knew that he had overreacted. He took a deep breath and slowly relaxed, and said, “You go back.” Then he turned away without looking back.
“Qi Yue, are you coming!” Standing at the door of the villa, Qi Mingyu suddenly turned around and shouted.
Qi Yue came back to his senses, took a look at Shang Han, and then followed into the villa.
Qi Mingyu took off his coat and threw it on the sofa. The whole person was still icy. This was not the cold air brought by the outside, but it was emitted by himself-since Shang Han mentioned that sister Wen, Qi Mingyu became like this.
What kind of woman was it that had such a great influence on Qi Mingyu.
“What’s wrong with Young Master?” Aunt Liu asked Qi Yue softly.
Qi Yue paused, not knowing whether to tell what happened outside, and finally shook his head.
“I don’t know.”
Aunt Liu sighed, glanced at Qi Mingyu with a distressed look, and told Qi Yue, “Please persuade the young master, don’t keep everything bottled up inside. Sometimes talk to others, spitting it out would be better.”
“Well, I know, Aunt Liu.”
Qi Yue poured a glass of water and handed it to Qi Mingyu, “Drink some water?”
Qi Mingyu looked at Qi Yue with a grim expression without saying words.
Qi Yue’s hand holding the water glass trembled, controlling himself not to take it back, holding the water glass stubbornly, and handing it forward.
Finally, Qi Mingyu took the water glass and took a sip, watching Qi Yue the whole process, as if to see through him.
Qi Yue squeezed his fingers, “My mother used to say that when you are angry or unhappy, just drink some water.”
“Neutralize your emotions.” Qi Yue replied naturally.
Qi Mingyu couldn’t cry or laugh while holding the water cup, but he was in a much better mood. Seeing Qi Yue’s silly smile because of his smile, the smile on Qi Mingyu’s mouth gradually disappeared. He caught Qi Yue off guard by pulling his arm and drawing him closer to him.
“What’s wrong?” Qi Yue looked at Qi Mingyu nervously.
“What do you think of Shang Han?” Qi Mingyu asked, staring at Qi Yue.
“Shang Han?” Qi Yue replied for a moment, “She is very beautiful, and… and very gentle, and she doesn’t have the air of a lady.”
“Do you like this kind of girl?” Qi Mingyu asked immediately.
What does he want to say-even if Shang Han is beautiful and gentle, his liking already belongs to another person. For a while, Qi Yue felt a wave of weakness in his heart.
Seeing Qi Yue’s dim eyes, Qi Mingyu suddenly released Qi Yue’s hand, “It’s okay, pretend I didn’t ask.”
Letting go of Qi Yue’s hand, Qi Mingyu stood up and walked to the study, “Go to Mingfan.”
Qi Yue sighed.
Qi Mingfan pulled Qi Yue to teach him to paint and now his room is full of paintings. Some painted by himself, some by Qi Yue, and also by two them together, and every painting is very carefully put up.
Qi Mingfan is very talented in painting. He was speechless and unwilling to communicate with others, but he was able to use painting to express his emotions and ideas. This discovery made Qi Yue and Qi Mingyu very happy. At least, they knew that Qi Mingfan was not a doll without any emotions. He would also express happiness, anger, sorrow, and joy, but he hadn’t been able to break through his own psychological barriers and could only rely on the paintings, but this also made them very happy.
So Qi Yue taught Qi Mingfan very seriously when he painted, and he almost did it with him hand in hand. But today, Qi Yue is a little absent-minded. He feels that the recent events are a bit beyond his expectations. Before he knows it, he is getting closer and closer to Qi Mingyu, but this relationship does not make him happy at all. As if separated by a veil, unable to see through the real situation on the other side, making his heart more and more disturbed and uneasy. It’s just that such a development is not something he can control, the one who gives his feelings first is bound to have no initiative, even if, the two of them were nothing at all before.
