Qiao Guang Yu fell in love with the development zone.
Although it was a little backward with a bumpy, yellow dirt road, the air was clean, there were few tourists, and the seafood was fresh and cheap. Qiao Guang Yu was a little reserved at first, but later, he released all his inhibitions and, before going back to the village with Quan Quan, he ate until he had a bulging stomach.
The bulging stomach was no exaggeration. After Qiao Guang Yu fastened the buttons of his tight jeans, the small piece of flesh protruding from his belly was undeniable.
He lifted his clothes, looked at his stomach, and then he looked at Quan Quan’s familiar disdainful eyes. He couldn’t help but feel ashamed. “Actually, I’m really not fat … it’s just my pants are too tight … “
“No need to explain. It’s just an excuse.” Quan Quan looked away to hide his smile. “Fortunately, the boss is not coming back today.”
Focusing on the second half of the sentence, Qiao Guang Yu opened his eyes wide. “Really? Will he spend the night with the white moonlight?” That was fast progress. He loved it!
He suddenly felt cheerful. He was walking on the smooth beach, the sea breeze was softly blowing at night, the distant moon was big and round like an egg yolk, and the person he liked was walking by his side. Qiao Guang Yu was already content. There was no better life than this.
However, for Huo Zhou, this romantic full-moon night was not as beautiful as he had imagined.
He and Yu Wu had not seen each other for three years. Until now, Huo Zhou still remembered Wu Yu’s living habits, such as avoiding seafood and enjoying vintage red wine.
Huo Zhou ordered a few random dishes in the resort’s high-end Western restaurant. After putting down the menu, he saw Wu Yu’s surprised and nostalgic expression. “I didn’t expect you to remember my taste. Everything you ordered is what I like, but I don’t see you ordering anything you like?”
After speaking, Wu Yu stopped the still lingering waiter and added a few extra dishes according to Huo Zhou’s taste with undisguised care and tenderness on his face.
This was what it was like to really love someone.
Huo Zhou recalled Qiao Guang Yu picking up the menu and looking at the seafood dishes with salivating eyes. He remembered him holding the red wine glass and shaking it gently, swallowing calmly and saying, “delicious.” He could clearly not appreciate the wine but would say “delicious” with a serious expression whenever any wine was placed in front of him.
In fact, Qiao Guang Yu was a qualified stand-in. His sitting posture and eating gestures were almost the same as Wu Yu’s. However, there were no traces of direct imitation. His temperament was restrained and poised, just like Wu Yu sitting opposite Huo Zhou right now.
He hadn’t seen Wu Yu for three years, and he had no idea what Wu Yu had been doing abroad. The pure and young boy of those days had become a more mature and confident man, carrying an air of superiority in his gestures. His aura was now equal to his own.
Anyway, Qian Guang Yu could not imitate this temperament. Frankly speaking, Qiao Guang Yu was merely an ordinary young man with a slightly childish personality who had just graduated from university.
Wu Yu cut off a small piece of steak elegantly and then looked at Huo Zhou. “Why don’t you eat? Don’t you like it? The chefs here are average. I’ll take you to a newly opened restaurant, even better than Black Rose, when we go back.”
“I don’t mind,” Huo Zhou said with a smile. “I often eat Western food these days just because you like it. Before, I used to accompany my father to eat Northern food.”
Wu Yu frowned lightly and said with an apologetic voice, “I’m sorry. Had you said you liked Northern food, I would have taken you to a Northern restaurant.”
Huo Zho shook his head lightly. “When I’m together with you, I can eat anything.” He saw the obvious emotions in Wu Yu’s eyes and, suddenly feeling tired, he mocked himself. “At least I used to think so back then.”
Wu Yu put down his knife and fork and then looked at him thoughtfully. “It was my fault that I went abroad without letting you know, but my heart has not changed in the last few years abroad. I love you, Huo Zhou.” He went across the table and held Huo Zhou’s hand. “I don’t believe you can let go of this relationship so easily. We have been in love since we’ve been in university, for ten years now … Even if there is another person next to you, I can see that … does he look a bit like me?”
These words seemed to touch Huo Zhou’s taboo point. He fell back and stood up in embarrassment, not daring to look into Wu Yu’s eyes. “I … I’ll go to the bathroom.”
Wu Yu slowly removed his hand, straightened his back with dignity and restraint, and nodded, “Ok.”
Even the angle of his smile was perfect.
But as soon as Huo Zhou left, the corners of Wu Yu’s mouth collapsed.
“I said Huo is unreliable.”
After several days, Wu Yu’s face has not returned to normal. When his brother, Wu Jun, mentioned Huo Zhou, his face didn’t look too good either. “I heard there was someone around him two years ago, but Huo Zhou protected him well; he never took him out on public occasions, so nobody even knew what the guy looked like.”
Wu Yu said calmly, “I saw him.”
“What? Did you see him?” Wu Jun looked at him in surprise. “Where?”
Wu Yu described the dramatic scene of his first meeting with Qian Guang Yu to Wu Jun. After that, he said with a somewhat smiling voice, “He is a sincere and enthusiastic child, and I don’t know how he can bear Huo Zhou’s temper.”
Wu Jun’s face was full of disgust. “Finds a child who looks like you; it’s like a golden house to keep his concubine. Huo Zhou is so disgusting. Who is it?”
Wu Yu sighed and looked at the calm sea. “I don’t know.”
Wu Yun told him, “Don’t contact him in the future. There are many good men, but Huo Zhou is not one of them!”
“I really miss him.” Wu Yu shook his head and said bitterly, “I was too inferior back then. Everyone praised him as a business genius and a future financial leader. However, I was merely the “little pianist prince” of this family. I would have only fooled laymen if I had become an artist.
When he had been the most in love with Huo Zhou, Wu Yu had still been worried about gains and losses. He couldn’t stand a mediocre self next to an excellent lover. So he walked out of the ivory tower and then went abroad to study finance for three years. He also learned to socialize with businessmen. In the past, not to mention his shirt stained with red wine, even after a quarrel with others, Wu Yu would have easily made a quick comeback. If he hadn’t been forced to learn to socialize for Huo Zhou, where would Qiao Guang Yu have had the chance to see Wu Yu with soiled clothes?
The only wrong thing he did was leave Huo Zhou without saying goodbye.
In the beginning, he was too naïve and confident, thinking that true love could stand the test of time, and even eight or ten years would not change one’s heart. He had fallen in love with Huo Zhou as a teenager, and he overcame the accusing eyes of everyone around him, including his parents, not to mention the seven-year itch. After three years, Wu Yu thought his return to China would bring Huo Zhou a surprise, and after a long separation, they would cherish each other even more.
Who would have thought that men are animals who could change their minds so easily? After all, few could control their lower bodies.
After the candlelight dinner with Huo Zhou ended on a sad note, Wu Yu was slightly embarrassed.
Wu Jun couldn’t see his apathetic appearance, so he took him out to play, and both took a speedboat to the island to relax for a few days. These islands were in early development, so the scenery kept its original, natural look. He was just hoping that his brother’s mood was better.
How could the two Wu brothers have imagined that they would meet Huo Zhou’s friend when they came out to relax?
Standing beside Huo Zhou, his little lover did look a bit like his brother …
What kind of shit luck was this!
