After Qi Mingyu finished speaking, he ignored the pale Wen Wanting and turned around and left.
Back in the hall, Qi Mingyu looked around. Lu Lei was taking Mingfan to eat and Qi Yue and Ying Jincheng were gone. His face turned completely dark.
After Ying Jincheng sent Qi Yue to his room, he was blocked by Ji Chen on the way back. Ji Chen originally saw Ying Jincheng taking Qi Yue to go to the elevator. He apparently was going to a hotel room. He didn’t know what had happened, but he was worried about Qi Yue. So he followed along the way, but didn’t catch the elevator in time. He ended up waiting for a long time before he was able to come up.
Seeing Ying Jincheng walking towards him, Ji Chen heaved a sigh of relief, “Hey, I thought you were going to misbehave.”
Ying Jincheng raised an eyebrow, “Am I that kind of person in your eyes?”
“Hm, yes.” Ji Chen looked around him, “Where is Qi Yue? Where did he go? Why did he leave suddenly, is he not feeling well?”
Ji Chen saw Qi Mingyu leave with a woman, but he didn’t know what had happened. But he is certain that Qi Yue must be in a bad mood.
“Well, he is in a bad mood and is resting here.” Ying Jincheng said. Then he suddenly frowned and approached Ji Chen. He bowed his head and sniffed a few times around his face.
“Crap! What are you doing?” Ji Chen dodged away and his hair stood on end. His face a little red.
“How much wine did you drink? It smells strong.” Ying Jincheng said, and he noticed that Ji Chen’s eyes were watery, and although you couldn’t see anything from his face, his whole body was not as distant as before. The thorny persona seemed to be a thousand miles away. He is like a child with awkward words in his mouth, even if he babbles, it is soft and makes people want to rub and pinch him.
Ji Chen lowered his head and sniffed wildly on himself. He also raised his arms to stick his nose in to smell, then raised his head in confusion, “No, there is no smell of alcohol.”
Ying Jincheng smiled involuntarily when he saw him like this. When Ji Chen looks like this, people can’t help but want to rub his head, this is just like a young youth.
“Would you like me to open a room for you too, let you…”
“What do you want to do?!”
Ying Jincheng was interrupted by Ji Chen before he finished speaking. He amusedly looked at Ji Chen with his arms around his chest in a guarded manner, with an alert look.
“What do you think I want to do?” Ying Jincheng asked rhetorically, without explaining.
“I can tell you, I’m a top!” Ji Chen said with squinting eyes.
“Oh, by coincidence, so am I.” Ying Jincheng touched his nose.
“So you give up!”
Ying Jincheng: “…”
Ying Jincheng looked to the sky, he really didn’t mean anything else. How did this drunk manage to look so sober, if it was not because his atmosphere was different than usual, Ying Jincheng would not think he was drunk at all.
With a sigh, Ying Jincheng said helplessly, “I just want to ask if you should pay attention, you are drunk.”
“You are drunk, I am sober!” Ji Chen retorted.
Ying Jincheng shrugged, “Well, it seems that you don’t want to rest, then we will go down and come out.”
“No, I’m tired, I want to rest.” Ji Chen said, “Find and open a room.”
The waiter walking by looked at them both with a dazed expression.
Ying Jincheng grabbed Ji Chen by the collar and quickly took him away.
When Ying Jincheng returned to the lobby, Qi Mingyu was striding towards him, and asked, “Where is Qi Yue?”
Ying Jincheng asked with a smile, “Why are you asking me?”
“Don’t pretend with me. He was taken away by you, where did you take him?” Qi Mingyu frowned and asked.
Ying Jincheng shook his head, “Qi Yue doesn’t want me to tell you. You know, he is in a bad mood now and doesn’t want to see you.”
Qi Mingyu’s face was a little ugly, “I want to explain to him.”
“Explain what? The matter between you and Wen Wanting has been resolved?”
“It has nothing to do with you.” Qi Mingyu didn’t want to answer.
Ying Jincheng sighed, “Mingyu, I can tell you where Qi Yue is, but don’t find him tonight. Let him be alone to think about it. You two may be able to have a good talk tomorrow instead.”
Qi Mingyu was silent for a moment before nodding.
The next day, Qi Yue was awakened by a knock on the door. He rubbed his painful forehead, got up and walked to the door. Looking through the peephole he found out that it was Qi Mingyu. Qi Yue took a deep breath. What should come will always come and what should be faced will need to be faced. He calmed down and opened the door.
Outside the door, Qi Mingyu’s expression was also a little haggard. He looked at Qi Yue without saying a word, the emotions in his eyes inexplicable.
“Come in.” Qi Yue said to Qi Mingyu, turning sideways.
Qi Mingyu nodded and walked in.
The two people sat on the sofa. Qi Yue asked, “What’s the matter, let’s talk about it, I will listen and accept it.”
“Accept what?” Qi Mingyu was a little angry, “Qi Yue, you are so obedient. Who are you showing it to? Me? Did I bully you?”
Qi Yue’s eyes were red. He pursed his lips and didn’t speak.
Qi Mingyu gritted his teeth and looked at Qi Yue. Suddenly he pulled Qi Yue up, and pressed him under him in Qi Yue’s startled eyes.
Qi Mingyu stretched out his hand to touch the corner of Qi Yue’s eye, “Are you angry? Or do you feel wronged?”
Qi Yue turned his head away, not knowing what to say.
Qi Mingyu sighed, “Do you know about Wen Wanting?” Qi Mingyu didn’t wait for Qi Yue to respond and he went on.
The more Qi Yue listened, the more surprised he became. He originally thought Wen Wanting was Qi Mingyu’s ex-girlfriend, but he didn’t expect that there was such a thing layered in it.
“Mingfan…” Qi Yue looked at Qi Mingyu in surprise.
Qi Mingyu nodded, and the pain flashed in his eyes, “I blame myself. Actually, if I went there, maybe Mingfan would not… Qi Yue, I really regret it and hate it for so many years. She has never come back, not even a word, I really can’t forget. I can’t get over this hurdle in my heart.”
“Then now you…” Qi Yue wants to ask Qi Mingyu if he still likes Wen Wanting and have feelings for her, but he really can’t say these words. He has no idea in his own heart. Is it because of love that you hate, because the person you like did such a thing, and is so irresponsible afterwards, that’s why you hate it and can’t let go. As the saying goes, there is a thin line between love and hate.
Qi Mingyu seemed to understand Qi Yue’s words, his eyes flashed, and he chose not to answer, because he didn’t know the answer. When Wen Wanting left, although they broke up, Qi Mingyu still had feelings for her. But before his feelings faded away, his brother’s thing happened, so this feeling suddenly changed. Now the hate is still there, but is there any like in this hate? He could not tell the difference. Qi Mingyu only knew that he could not make a definite judgment before the thorn in his heart completely disappeared, but what is certain is that he would not choose to be with Wen Wanting again. They can no longer go back to the past.
Although he can be sure of this, he can also tell Qi Yue that he has no lingering thoughts about Wen Wanting, but looking at Qi Yue’s clear eyes, he couldn’t say anything. What Qi Yue gave him is his sincere feelings and Qi Mingyu also wanted to repay these feelings the same way.
He traced Qi Yue’s lips with his fingers, “Qi Yue, I can tell you that Wen Wanting and I will never be able to go back, but the scars she brought to me at the beginning have not faded. I can’t get past this hurdle in my heart so there is no way to give you a guarantee about anything.”
Qi Yue lowered his eyes in disappointment, “So you don’t know if you like her or not? If you get pass this hurdle in your heart, can you be sure that you won’t get back together with her again?”
“Qi Yue…” Qi Mingyu frowned and looked at Qi Yue.
Qi Yue smiled bitterly, “So what are we doing like this? Just dragging it out? You want me to wait for you to figure it out? Waiting for you to cross the hurdle in your heart? Why?” Qi Yue covered his face with his hands, not wanting Qi Mingyu to see how much he was suffering for him.
Qi Mingyu straightened up and looked at Qi Yue without saying a word. He wanted to hug Qi Yue, but when he stretched his hand over, he clenched his fist. He couldn’t even tell his own feelings, and wanted to make Qi Yue stay with him. Qi Mingyu, when have you been so irresponsible.
“I’m sorry…” Qi Mingyu’s lips opened and closed, and he could only utter these three words.
Qi Yue wiped his face, stood up and turned his back to Qi Mingyu, “When you think about it, come look for me. Then just say what it will look like. For now… let’s separate first.”
Qi Mingyu can only be silent. Seeing Qi Yue’s thin back, he grasped his chest, feeling an unbearable pain there.
The two went back without speaking a word. As soon as Qi Yue arrived at Qi Mingyu’s villa, he packed up his things and prepared to leave. He declined Qi Mingyu’s farewell and went home with his luggage.
