“What noise? I obviously…” didn’t make a sound. Gu Ang felt his neck and cheeks burn, but luckily it was dark enough to hide himself turning scarlet.
Ye Fei didn’t seem like he was letting him go that easily, still leaning against the window, he pointed out, “You were breathing so heavily, it woke me up.”
You were so loud I almost couldn’t hold back, I had no choice but to get out of bed and smoke to suppress myself.
Gu Ang was speechless. Can this person be any more straightforward?
“Okay, the topic ends here.” Gu Ang wiped his face and pulled out a tissue from his bedside, “This stays between us.”
Ye Fei didn’t respond, throwing the cigarette into the trash can1 and slowly pacing back to the bed.
It was a while before he opened his mouth.
“I gave you the tissue, and you used it to wipe that?”
Gu Ang snapped, “Shut up.”
The awkward atmosphere barely dispersed, and his drowsiness was completely gone.
He tossed and turned the entire night with mixed emotions and flashbacks flooded his head.
He only managed to drift off to sleep near dawn.
Drowsily, Gu Ang saw someone flash by followed by the sound of the door closing.
He was jolted awake by that sudden leap in his heart.
After last night’s Q&A session, it was embarrassing to meet each other in the morning.
He looked at the bedside time, it was already 7:30 am.
Today was the first official day of school but Gu Ang was disinterested and he woke up with dark circles under his eyes.
Mainly because he was tired, plus because of what had happened last night.
It was all that person’s fault, if only he could just turn a blind eye.
Why did he have to state the obvious and make things awkward?
He stood in the bathroom and lazily changed into a clean uniform.
His hand stopped at the second button, somehow, recalling how Ye Fei had always meticulously buttoned all the way up to his shirt collar.
One by one, all the buttons were neatly clasped, revealing a little bit of his Adam’s apple, which was very sexy.
As if on purpose, he loosened the top two buttons of his shirt, slightly relieving the angst in his heart.
Gu Ang cleaned up a little and left the dormitory slowly, taking his time.
He met Bai SiNing who was in a hurry at the ground floor of the dorm building.
“What’s the rush?” Gu Ang called out to the man.
Bai SiNing turned his head to see who had called him, his forehead covered in sweat as he pulled up his shirt sleeve, “I’m gonna be late.”
Gu Ang checked the time and replied calmly, “There’s five minutes left.”
Bai SiNing breathed a sigh of relief and slowed down to gossip, “Anything interesting happened last night between you two?”
I don’t want to remember last night. Gu Ang snapped his fingers, “No.”
Bai SiNing replied with an ‘oh’, looking a little disappointed, “God Ye is so calm ah.
He didn’t beat you up?”
“Are you looking forward to me getting beaten up?” Gu Ang flexed his fingers a little.
Bai SiNing waved his hand in front of him, “I’m part of the inquisitive crowd, secretly wanting to see some dog blood drama between two nemesis…”
Well, he did steal Demon King2 Ye’s thunder.
If it was him, he would’ve given that person a good beating to teach him a lesson.
Sorry to disappoint everyone, they didn’t end up fighting but that person unpredictably mocked him.
He looked at Bai SiNing, who had turned to classroom S with him, and asked, “We’re in the same class?”
Bai SiNing nodded with pride, “Yeah, aren’t I awesome? I’m the only beta in our class, a little beta among a million alphas!”
When he heard that Bai SiNing was also in the same class, his expression softened.
Bai SiNing was a beta, and it wasn’t easy to keep up with the mental strength and combat power of a group of competitive alphas.
He knew exactly how much effort Bai SiNing had put in to get to the position of deputy officer.
In the past, he thought Bai SiNing was good at everything, but he was too gloomy, following him like a dark cloud that couldn’t be dispersed.
Now… Watching him bounce all the way into the classroom…
Hmmm, it was more appropriate to say that he’s a 2B3 among a million alphas.
Including them, almost everyone had arrived in class.
He saw many familiar faces.
namely Wang YeZhu and his group of people who occupied the back left corner of the class, the other few corners were also crowded, with people obviously forming cliques.
And… His dear roommate and ex-husband, Ye Fei, was sitting alone in the last row of the classroom.
Maybe he wasn’t that popular after all?
Bai SiNing waved at Ye Fei and was about to walk over when Gu Ang grabbed him by his collar, “Let’s be tablemates.”
“I want to sit with God Ye…” Bai SiNing tried to break free.
Gu Ang pinned the person to an empty seat, “No, you don’t want to.”
Bai SiNing had regret in his eyes and desperation in his tone, “Okay.”
Gu Ang stuffed his book bag into his desk and slumped in his seat lazily, “Sorry, you’ll have to put up with me.”
Bai SiNing was still muttering, but he suddenly stopped.
“Class is starting, what’s with the ruckus? Be quiet.” A middle-aged man pushed a machine into the classroom at the door, “Let me introduce myself, I am Wang Chuang, the teacher of Class S.
I’m glad to see all of you here.
In our generation of interstellar combat, although the mechas are already very advanced, we still place great value on physical combat, mental combat, and the development of strength.
Today, in our first class, we will test everyone’s strength value first.” Wang Chuang paused and patted the machine next to him, “This thing can calculate everyone’s punch speed and strength.
Any student wants to volunteer to come and try?”
A shot would hit the bird that first poked its head out4, so the classroom was silent.
Wang Chuang laughed, “No one? If there are no volunteers, I will randomly pick a name.”
“Teacher, make it quick.” Bai SiNing answered, throwing a wink towards Gu Ang next to him.
After yesterday’s battle, he was also really curious about Gu Ang’s strength.
He was obviously the last in the entrance exam, but in the freshman competition he was suddenly first.
As they always say, curiosity killed the cat.
Wang Chuang nodded, “The first and second place in the freshman competition yesterday, come up.”
The classroom began to buzz, and everyone became spirited.
Most of them were anticipating watching them make a fool of themselves.
This new student, who just got ranked first, would now immediately fall down from the altar.
Gu Ang pushed his chair back and walked up to the podium.
Ye Fei followed, and the two of them stood left and right, just like the door gods5.
“So, Student Gu Ang…”
“Student Ye Fei can do the demonstration first.” Gu Ang smiled, politely and humbly, “My strength level isn’t stable, I’m afraid I’ll make everyone laugh.”
Actually, he wanted to take this opportunity to test him again in the name of not being familiar with this machinery.
Ye Fei shrugged his shoulders, “Fine by me.”
“Then Ye Fei will go first.” Wang Chuang made an inviting gesture.
Ye Fei loosened the cuffs of his uniform and pulled them to the middle of his forearm, revealing a beautifully toned arm.
He aimed at the punching machine and thumped it with a loud bang.
Ye Fei didn’t use all his strength, he knew what was playing in Gu Ang’s head.
The latter was testing him, so he couldn’t show any flaws in his disguise.
The machine immediately displayed the data above: 0.1S, 1000KG.
“Wow, shit… Fucking awesome!” The classroom was full of awe.
Wang Chuang was full of relief, “As expected from Student Ye Fei, who has excelled since his childhood.
Breaking our school’s freshman record so casually.”
Ye Fei didn’t react, I indeed just simply threw out a punch, I didn’t even put in any strength.
Wang Chuang looked at Gu Ang, “It’s your turn.”
Gu Ang was unbuttoning his cuffs as he raised his eyes to meet Ye Fei’s absent minded gaze.
He felt that those eyes weren’t like the previous cold ones, but were filled with some mischievousness, as if he caught on to his secret.
Since waking up this morning, this was the first time the two of them looked at each other.
He couldn’t help but recall the snicker that was heard at the end of his bed last night.
The room was dark last night, so Gu Ang couldn’t see his expression, and now he had the feeling of delayed response to the man’s reaction back then.
The feeling of embarrassment crept up the back of his neck, slowly spreading all over.
Gu Ang was distracted.
Wang Chuang urged, “Why are you dawdling? Come on now.”
There were already people near the podium recording the scene, secretly waiting for the flunkie to make a fool of himself.
The events of last night replayed in the back of his mind repeatedly, and Gu Ang felt a dry fire slowly getting ignited in his body.
He moved out of Ye Fei’s direct line of sight, imagining the machine in front of him as Ye Fei, and threw out a punch.
Who allowed you to laugh at me? Who was the one who buried the funerary dolls first6? If it was someone else lying next to me, would I have had the same reaction?
Another loud sound, the students turned their heads in unison, looked at the monitor above: F, 10KG.
The room burst out in laughter, ridiculing him with one mockery after another, “Loud thunder, but only tiny drops of rain7’ describes this show off so well!”
“Listen to the sound of it, maybe he’s stronger than God Ye.”
“Red Flame’s freshman first place’s standard, a mere 10KG! This is killing me!”
“How do I put this, one simple test to expose the truth…”
“Obviously a loser that got in through backdoor deals.
He even had the guts to steal the limelight from God Ye’s victory.
Doesn’t he know his own capabilities?”
“Be quiet.” Wang Chuang raised his voice, “You rascals, open your eyes and take a good look at the testing machine!”
Everyone sensed that something was wrong, and looked over again with doubts in their eyes.
They froze, dumbfounded.
Bai SiNing said with a trembling voice, “Fuck… You actually broke the military grade strength tester machine?”
“Hiss…” The whole room sucked in a breath of cold air.
“Fucking awesome, Brother Ang! My mom asked me why I kneeled down to watch this8…”
“Who said he got in through the backdoor? Did the military grade strength tester machine also let him pass the test through the backdoor?”
“I just provoked a humanoid mecha… I hope he didn’t hear me…”
“Fortunately, Student Gu is a noble person and has high integrity and will not lower himself to argue with people with the likes of us.
If I took this punch, I’m afraid I’d already wet my pants!”
Gu Ang’s lips tightened into a straight line and he looked at the man at the other end of the podium in front of him.
His arms were crossed on his chest as he watched the show unfold in front of him.
He then raised his eyebrows provocatively.
Ye Fei smirked and said something, his tone not too gentle nor harsh, floating into the latter’s ears, “It seems like Student Gu Ang is very energetic, and your resentment is quite heavy.”
Fuck… Forget it, I won’t argue with the likes of this bastard of an ex-husband of mine. Gu Ang closed his eyes and took a deep breath, trying to calm himself.
“Well, what’s with all this chattering during class? It seems like Student Gu Ang is also very powerful.
Even breaking the limit of our machine.
Very good!” Wang Chuang said but tried to contain his split expression9 little by little,”But! Since you broke the school’s machine, you have to pay for it.”
Gu Ang was speechless.
Will all these bad things happening to him ever end? As if taking out his frustration, he dragged someone else down with him in an instant, “Teacher, if it weren’t for Student Ye Fei’s punch, my punch alone wouldn’t have broken this thing.
So,” Gu Ang said with a smirking smile, “the reimbursement should be borne by the two of us.”
Ye Fei, who was watching the show indifferently: “?”
The wife’s debt should be paid off together.
That’s the obligation of every husband.
To clarify, unlike what most of you think, the reason for their divorce wasn’t because of an unhappy sex life or that Ye Fei couldn’t perform! #YeFeiCanPerformVeryWell# Thanks!
Addis safety PSA: Never, ever throw a cigarette into a trash can.
This can easily cause a fire.
If you need to throw it out, make sure that you leave it in water for at least a minute first.
NEVER leave burning ember without putting it out. Just a nickname to describe a ruffian or someone with a really bad temper.
Ye Fei is just a very HOT alpha, no demons here. 2B is a slang to describe someone who’s an airhead: https://hahachn.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/er-bi/ nonconformity gets punished/the outstanding usually bear the brunt of attack https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menshen Idiom for the initiator of an evil practice. Idiom for all talk no action. Internet slang to express exaggerated admiration.
So exaggerated that one would kneel on the floor in awe and worship the person. To describe speechlessness
