Two days later, brother Egg called me and asked cautiously if he could come to see me. I guess Pei Hao called him to intercede.
“Brother Egg, you had warned me before that Pei Hao didn’t like me.” I couldn’t block his number the way I blocked Pei Hao’s, so I could only explain patiently. “You also saw what happened at the sea that day. After all, he has only ever loved Fu Yan, so I can’t continue to live with him.”
Brother Egg was silent for a while, probably wondering whether he should still persuade me.
“Actually, you’ve noticed this for many years, haven’t you?” I pushed on, “You know that in Pei Hao’s heart I’m only Fu Yan’s spare tire.”
Brother Egg remained silent. Even as Pei Hao’s friend, it would be too embarrassing to continue.
“I don’t understand why he’s been acting so crazy lately. Maybe he can’t accept that I’ve dumped him instead of him dumping me.” Leaning against the sofa, despite feeling quite bad, I said in a flat tone, “Even if I choose to live with him, the fact that at the most crucial time he saved Fu Yan and not me is like a knife stab in my heart. I can’t forget it for the rest of my life.”
“Pei Hao is an idiot,” Brother Egg said with an angry voice. “So when he called me today, I scolded him for half an hour.”
Brother Egg continued after a pause, “But he kept saying that he didn’t know the other person falling in the water was you, and I believe him.”
“The point is not whether he knew I fell into the water. The point is that he only had Fu Yan in his eyes,” I said with a frown. No matter how many times I said it, I would feel uncomfortable.
“Hey,” brother Egg sighed and said helplessly, “I understand what you mean. I’ll let him know, and I won’t try to persuade you any further.”
“Xiao Xi, I don’t care about Pei Hao, but I still like you as a friend. If you don’t mind my relationship with Pei Hao, you can still contact me in the future and I’ll try to help you the best I can. I hope we can keep our friendship.” Since brother Egg said this, he naturally understood that I was determined.
I was a little moved by his words. Brother Egg has been taking care of me for so long. Even when Pei Hao didn’t care about me, I knew that he had scolded Pei Hao both quietly and openly several times.
I nodded and said, “Ok, you can contact me in the future at any time. Thank you for taking care of me during the last few years.”
After hanging up the phone, I relaxed on the couch for a while, thinking about the recent events.
Pei Hao’s reaction was quite unexpected. I didn’t think he would act like he cared about me that much. He checked the elevator video, stopped Da Bai several times, called my sister, and even called brother Egg.
After thinking about it, I reconned there were two reasons. First, Pei Hao’s life has been too smooth. His family was wealthy, he was handsome and self-motivated. He has had a lot more opportunities than ordinary children. I think Pei Hao’s biggest downfall in life was Fu Yan. Except for him, he could get anything he wanted just by stretching out his hand. So how could he allow me – a mere ordinary person who has been chasing after him for five years – to abandon him. His years of experience and self-esteem wouldn’t let him.
Second, I’ve been really good to him these years, and he couldn’t give up all this kindness. Many people had a crush on Pei Hao, but not many could be like me. In winter, I stood in the queue for a whole night just to buy tickets to his favorite basketball game. He couldn’t find his passport the day before going abroad for business, so I searched at home until 3 am to find it. The next day I went to work with puffy eyes. On his birthday, while on a business trip out of town, I flew at night just to accompany him to celebrate it and flew back early the next morning … Maybe these are normal things for couples to express their love, but sometimes I think, no matter who I will fall in love with next, I will no longer have the passion for such exaggerated gestures again. I have given Pei Hao my strongest love.
And Pei Hao couldn’t get used to the fact that he, who had been spoiled by my silent dedication for five years, suddenly lost such a caring person.
At night, I switched on the computer and saw that the company replied, agreeing to my transfer to city X if I completed my project here first. I figured it would take me about a month. According to the doctor, my legs would be healed by then, so the time to go back to see my sister was just right.
I called Da Bai to ask whether Pei Hao had been pestering him lately. Da Bai confirmed that my call to Pei Hao had helped since Pei Hao disappeared after that.
Of course. Pei Hao’s warmth for me was usually a three-minute thing. Occasionally, he would show his love to me, but it was always at the spur of the moment.
This time, Pei Hao’s enthusiasm lasted for less than a week. After not getting a positive answer from me, he would already feel bored.
Time would naturally reveal his sincerity or lack thereof.
[1st floor] mingo: so scum Pei stopped chasing him?
[2nd floor] old times sati: the scum Pei must have chased him again; otherwise why would this post be called “How can I get rid of him?”
[3rd floor] Timing: actually, I still haven’t figured out Pei Hao’s sudden change of mind. Hasn’t he been particularly indifferent to Xiao Xi? Why has he become suddenly so infatuated? (╯°Д°)
[4th floor] XOXO: Upstairs, let me explain it to you. There is a law that human nature is inherently cheap. In the past, Xiao Xi always treated Pei Hao well without asking for anything in return. Pei Hao took Xiao Xi for granted and never really looked at him. When Pei Hao suddenly realized that Xiao Xi was truly going to leave, he discovered that this breakup was different from before. Whether his self-esteem wouldn’t allow it, or he was used to Xiao Xi’s care, or he realized that he had feelings for Xiao Xi, Pei Hao could no longer accept it.
[9th floor] Fuel-Efficient Grocery Store: Even brother Egg, as a bystander watching from the sidelines, gave up persuading Xiao Xi. Of course, those of us reading the post follow in brother Dan’s footsteps.
[17th floor] Wu Kui is in my heart: sigh, brother Egg is really good ~~
