Meanwhile, the rest of the crew leisurely chatted with each other as they grilled the meat.

Gu Qingchi didn’t touch very much of the food, and he didn’t barbecue any meat either.
However, he was very used to this kind of atmosphere.
Rather, he actually liked this kind of vibrant and enthusiastic scene.

When he used to work at the restaurant, they would always open up the dance floor in the evenings.
The band would play song after song after song.
Over by the bar, everyone was able to relax and happily enjoy themselves. 

Gu Qingchi’s clothing seemed to be of an aristocratic style.
He wore a white silk shirt, a loose tie, and cropped trousers.
The pants were rather tight by his ankles.

If he were to slap a cap on his head, he would look exactly like an aristocratic young master from seventeenth century England.

However, right now, he was sitting on the sofa with his loose tie.
He had a bottle of alcohol in his hands just like everyone else.
He leaned back on the sofa and relaxed, placing a hand upon the back of the sofa.
He looked like a playboy.

However, where everyone else was drinking beer, he was drinking vodka.
Burning liquor for a striking beauty. 

Whenever someone made a toast, he would lift his bottle from a distance and take a big swig.

Xie Luyu wasn’t in the room.
He stood by a window in the hallway.
He had his back against the window and his elbows resting upon the windowsill, smoking cigarette after cigarette.


His phone was placed next to him on the windowsill.
The screen showed that there was currently a call in progress.

“Xie Luyu, Xie ge, do I need to thank you for remembering to unblock me?” 

Xie Luyu exhaled a puff of smoke.
He tilted his head towards the phone and spoke to Pan Xiaocheng.

“No need to thank me.
After all, aren’t we close enough to forget about that kind of thing?”

Pan Xiaocheng didn’t notice anything wrong with him.

Xie Luyu was an actor.
Even in this kind of situation, it was easy for him to pretend that nothing had happened. 

Still, he felt like he needed to do something to distract himself.
Otherwise, he didn’t know what he would do.

Pan Xiaocheng, on the other hand, was full of grief and indignation.
If he added it all up, he had been dragged in and out of Xie Luyu’s blocklist several times now.

“Is nothing able to stop you from causing trouble anymore?”

Xie Luyu had one leg bent and a cigarette between his fingers. 

“I didn’t really do anything.
Didn’t everything turn out fine?”

Pan Xiaocheng choked on his words for a moment.
Then, he became even more indignant.

“That’s because you do this kind of thing so often that everyone got used to it!”

Just as Xie Luyu was about to reply, he happened to catch a glimpse of Gu Qingchi walking out of the private room. 

He was still holding a half-finished bottle in his hand.
If it was anyone else, they would look like they were gearing up for a fight, but, when it came to Gu Qingchi, he made it look much more classy, more upscale.

He was like a medieval nobleman who woke up in the middle of the night for a glass of wine.

Xie Luyu immediately hung up.
He didn’t even bother picking his phone up.
Instead, he walked straight towards Gu Qingchi.

“What’s the matter? Do you need to use the bathroom? The bathrooms are over there.” 

Xie Luyu pointed in a certain direction.
His hand stopped right beside Gu Qingchi’s cheek.

Gu Qingchi’s eyes were half-closed.
His gaze followed Xie Luyu’s movements and finally stopped on his fingers.


He looked a lot more seductive than usual.
His appearance sent a thrill through his heart.

Gu Qingchi’s gaze stayed there for a few seconds.
Then, he suddenly reached out and grabbed Xie Luyu’s fingers. 

Xie Luyu looked at Gu Qingchi in surprise, only to find that his eyes weren’t focused.

He was drunk.

Gu Qingchi’s face didn’t become flushed when he was drunk.
His face and neck were still porcelain white.
He didn’t look any different from usual.
If it wasn’t for the smell of vodka on him, no one would even be able to tell that he was drunk.

Before Xie Luyu even had time to think, Gu Qingchi grabbed his hand and approached him. 

Gu Qingchi was so close that Xie Luyu could feel his warm breath on his neck.
He could even smell the alcohol from his body.

Gu Qingchi leaned over and slightly tilted his head.
His chin hovered just above Xie Luyu’s shoulder.

Then, he slowly lowered his head until his face was buried in Xie Luyu’s neck.
However, he didn’t lean in completely.

It felt a little more ambiguous than if he were to lean in completely. 

It was as if Gu Qingchi was hugging Xie Luyu from behind.

Gu Qingchi followed the shape of Xie Luyu’s arms.
He hugged Xie Luyu around the waist and finally leaned himself against Xie Luyu’s shoulder, wrapping himself around Xie Luyu.

He whispered very, very softly into Xie Luyu’s ear.

“What’s my name?”

Xie Luyu’s mind went blank.
He subconsciously replied.

“Gu Qingchi.”

Then, he turned his head and met Gu Qingchi’s gaze.
Gu Qingchi was looking at him.
His eyes were sparkling.
Anyone could see just how happy he was right now.

Xie Luyu felt Gu Qingchi’s arms tighten a bit around his waist.
Then, he suddenly let go of Xie Luyu and took a step back. 

Xie Luyu blanked for a moment.
He couldn’t tell what it was he was feeling right now.
He turned around.

Xiao Ke didn’t come today.
He couldn’t just leave Gu Qingchi alone.


Xie Luyu was kind of afraid to look at Gu Qingchi.

“You’re drunk.
I’ll send you back.
Where do you live? Forget it, I’ll go back and get your things first.” 

He was just about to head back into the private room.
However, just as he turned around, Gu Qingchi took another step forward and hugged him.

This time, the hug was a lot tighter than before.
It was as if he was hugging the only thing he had left.

Gu Qingchi was always incredibly calm, as if he didn’t care about anything.
However, this time, he was very determined.

He uttered each word one by one. 

“Don’t leave me.”

“I only have myself left.”

“Don’t leave me by myself.”

Xie Luyu didn’t know why, but his heart throbbed.
He softly started coaxing him. 

“Then I won’t go.
Let’s go back.
We don’t need to get our things, okay?”

Gu Qingchi didn’t speak, but he did let go of Xie Luyu.
He took two steps back, looking very quiet and obedient.

Xie Luyu took the alcohol from Gu Qingchi’s hand.
His phone was still on the windowsill, but he didn’t go back for it.
He was just glad that his car keys were in his pocket.

The two of them headed towards the parking lot. 

Xie Luyu looked for something to say.

“How much did you drink?”

Gu Qingchi thought about it for a while.
Then, he slowly raised three fingers.

Xie Luyu looked at the bottle in his hand.
The bottle actually wasn’t that big. 

“Three glasses? That’s not too bad.
You did good.
Three glasses is more than enough.”

It was actually three and a half bottles.
He had two bottles of beer and one bottle of vodka, plus the bottle that Xie Luyu was carrying.
