After the college entrance examination, he could finally relax and rest completely.
Tang Jinyu ended his senior year in high school twice. After a sleep, he woke up full of energy. He stretched out on the bed and ran into the person sitting next to the bed as soon as he turned over.
Tang Jinyu squinted his eyes, pinched the fabric of the corner of his clothes with his fingers and started to laugh, “Brother, you came so early…”
Xia Ye touched his head, “It’s already late, it’s past nine o’clock.”
Tang Jinyu snorted, stretched out his hand to hug his brother’s waist, immersed in the past and rubbed him coquettishly, and said vaguely: “I had a particularly good dream yesterday, but I forgot it as soon as I opened my eyes. I can’t remember it. “
Xia Ye laughed, pinched his earlobe, and asked softly: “Was I there?”
”For sure, you are my lucky star, brother, every time I think of you there, I don’t have to worry about anything. It’s very practical.”
Xia Ye was sweetened by his few words, patted and hugged his arm and called him to get up, “Get up first and take you to some good food.”
Tang Jinyu said, “Do you want to go out?”
”If you don’t want to go out, let’s go downstairs.”
Tang Jinyu agreed and got up to wash. Xia Ye followed him through the whole process. Tang Jinyu felt a bit strange at first, but when he saw the dark circles under his brother’s eyes, he understood in his heart that his brother has psychological shadow when he was sleeping these days, it is estimated that it will take a few more days to catch up on his sleep. This happened once or twice when he was young. Basically every time he caught a cold and fever in winter, the whole family was so careful for a while, especially his dad, who was even more worried. He followed wherever he went. When taking a shower, he would stand outside the shower curtain and call out his name every few minutes.
His brother is a little bit like that now.
Tang Jinyu smiled with his toothbrush in his hand and almost swallowed the toothpaste.
Xia Ye looked at him, “What’s the matter?”
Tang Jinyu shook his head, speeding up to wash.
The restaurant downstairs has been re-arranged. There are already several dishes that look good. There is still a chef in the kitchen busy cooking. Tang Jinyu doesn’t know the chef, but after one bite he tasted Su Ji’s side dishes. They are all his usual favorite flavors. He glanced at the kitchen, then at Xia Ye, “Brother, you didn’t invite a chef at home, did you?”
Xia Ye nodded and said: “You are not in good health now, it is not convenient to go out, and the same is true for eating at home.”
Tang Jinyu looked at the busy chef in the kitchen, and then at the few dishes on the table, rubbed the tip of his nose, and sat down to eat.
Su Ji’s dish is well-known. He doesn’t know how the chef made the mushroom dish core. But Tang Jinyu, who usually doesn’t like to eat vegetables, can eat a small bowl of rice with this dish, and felt refreshed after eating.
Xia Ye picked up vegetables for him, “Eat slowly, and I’ll make your favorite ribs and rice cakes at noon.”
Tang Jinyu asked him strangely: “Can I have some at noon?”
Xia Ye nodded, “Yes.”
Tang Jinyu tentatively asked, “Brother, you won’t be inviting someone over for the next few days, right?”
Xia Ye picked up food for him, “Why, it’s only two days, you might be tired of eating from our family, so I will change to the chef of another restaurant tomorrow.”
Tang Jinyu: “…”
Xia Ye has always taken good care of the little guy at home, and after experiencing this incident, he has become more obedient. He did his best not only on meals, but also arranged other things. He knew that Tang Jinyu wanted to find someone, but this time he didn’t take the kid around, but said to him: “I let Song Yi look for it. There will be news in these two days, while you are waiting at home, and I will accompany you as soon as we find him.”
Tang Jinyu was very surprised, “Brother, will you really find him?”
Xia Ye nodded and said, “Yes, in a small town, I will accompany you after Song Yi has checked his identity. You can eat well at home and get better, otherwise I can’t find a reason to take you out to play.” He stretched out his hand, and touched Tang Jinyu’s cheek, the little guy was in a coma and thinner during this period of time in the hospital. It’s no wonder that the elders in the family stare at him closely.
Tang Jinyu nodded and said, “Okay.”
Xia Ye didn’t go to the company for the past two days. He moved his computer home to accompany Tang Jinyu. Except for not sleeping in the same room at night, he basically stayed there all day and didn’t go anywhere. He was frightened before and would not let it go easily anymore, wishing to put the little guy under his eyes 24 hours a day and look at him. He didn’t understand Tang Hongjun’s mood in the past, but he didn’t fully understand it until now.
His feelings for Tang Jinyu are very complicated. He likes him and loves him, but he is also willing to spoil him.
It’s a kind of affection between family members, but a bit stronger than family affection. They have the deepest bond. They will not have a weak relationship, and they have no blood relationship, but they are stronger than that.
Xia Ye thought a lot during the days when Tang Jinyu slept. He even thought that as long as the other party wakes up, he can give him everything.
Anything is okay, including freedom.
In the past, he still wanted to be selfishly possessed and wanted to be the only one, but as long as he thought of Tang Jinyu’s sudden fainting, he had only experienced it at that moment, and he realize that his greatest extravagance is to want the little guy to be safe and sound, and healthy, as long as he can see him when he looks up, and he would satisfied with that.
He wants this person to be well and live by his side.
Xia Ye got used to being silent, he didn’t say anything, and was used to doing things with actions.
During the two days, he accompanied Tang Jinyu to eat together at home during the daytime, and in the evening, he took Tang Jinyu out for a walk and exercise, which took more time than everyone else.
Especially when eating, Xia Ye will help Tang Jinyu to cut his food and put it on the plate. Sometimes the chef will look at them a few more times. An outsider thinks that the two brothers are too close, but he sees that the two elders of Xia and Tang are together. Of course, the chef has a bit of a bold guess, maybe these two are originally in-laws?
Xia Ye didn’t care much about the sight of outsiders, and was still considerate. If the little guy could hug him and say “Like” after leaving his exam room. What can’t he do?
He would never forget that liking.
Tang Jinyu recovered quickly, and his personality was as cheerful as before, like a little pistachio. He coaxed Xia Ye and the elders at home more often, and laughter could always be heard wherever he was.
(T/n: pistachio (nut); “someone who brings joy”)
After such comfort, Xia Ye and the elders in the family were relieved and slowly returned to normal.
When Tang Jinyu went for a walk with Xia Ye, he would touch the other person’s hand when no one else was around. After two touches, Xia Ye would hold his hand and lead him along.
Just like a game he played when he was a child, Tang Jinyu was always happy, and he was not honest when he was held by his hand, and was always twisting in Xia Ye’s palm.
Xia Ye said: “Don’t move.”
Tang Jinyu’s hand moved twice again. Xia Ye didn’t let go at first, but later let go a little bit, and felt that the little guy’s hand was turned around immediately, and his fingers crossed and held him in a more intimate place, palms facing each other, carrying the same heat.
Tang Jinyu shook his hands twice and whispered, “Brother, I’m all right.”
”I don’t have a fever anymore, and I’m in good health. The doctor said that I’m all well.” Tang Jinyu looked up at him and tried to imply.
Xia Ye took his hand and walked slowly, without replying.
Tang Jinyu continued to imply: “Brother, do you think I have grown taller again?”
Xia Ye said: “Maybe a bit taller, I’ll go back and measure it for you.”
Tang Jinyu said again: “If you don’t use it, I will definitely grow taller. Now I can kiss you while stepping up on my feet. Would you like to try it?”
Xia Ye didn’t hold back, and laughed.
Tang Jinyu didn’t hesitate anymore, holding his hand and standing there with his face flushed, but still raised his head and looked at him with bright eyes, with a little expectation. During this time, his brother treated him as a fragile item, and only hugged him in the hospital. He didn’t dare to touch him the rest of the time, which was very different from before.
In the past, Xia Ye liked to hug him the most.
Tang Jinyu thought about this, and he actually liked it.
The sky was dark and there was no one around, only the shadow of the tree moved by the wind.
Xia Ye bowed his head and kissed him on the forehead, as if reluctant, then kissed him again.
This was different from what Tang Jinyu thought before, but he also liked it very much. When Xia Ye pulled away a little bit, he stepped up and kissed the corner of his lips again, as if a chick was just starting to learn. He pecked several times, warm and straightforward, expressing his love.
Xia Ye was itchy by his kiss, laughed in a low voice, rubbed his head and said: “The days you fell asleep, I thought a lot. I used to be a little greedy and wanted a lot, but now I don’t. I want to stay with you, wait for you to grow up a little bit, if you want, I will always be here, and if you meet someone better…”
”There is no better, brother, I only like you!”
Xia Ye laughed, and rubbed his forehead against his. “You are still young, and you have to wait a long time to grow up. You have more choices to choose from.” When he heard his answer, his heart that was already lost, filled up.
He only needs to remember the time when Tang Jinyu suddenly fainted at the dining table, he still had lingering fears. The little fish he was holding was not there, and he felt as though he was really waiting for the end of the world. Fortunately, his little fish is back.
Tang Jinyu hugged him, buried his head in his arms and muttered: “I have seen it.”
”I went to see it in the future, if there is no you, it’s not so good.”
Xia Ye rubbed his head and coaxed him a few words when he was talking, but Tang Jinyu did not answer this time. It took him a while before he made up his mind and said, “Brother, I have something to tell you.”
Some time ago, during his college entrance exams, he did have time to talk to Xia Ye. These days, he found that his words were no longer restricted. He was able to get away from the “future” he knew and chose another direction. Or perhaps the complete news of the power of that book, he could finally speak.
Xia Ye took him back. Two people sat in the room. Tang Jinyu sat on the bed. Xia Ye pushed a chair to face him. He didn’t know what Tang Jinyu was going to say, but his brother looked a little serious now.
Tang Jinyu cleared his throat and tried to say a few words. The strength of the previous restraint was much weaker, almost nothing. He remembered the last few lines he saw in the book, his brother was 78 years old and was still working hard to expand his territory. It seemed that the air crash was over. He breathed a sigh of relief and slowly talked to Xia Ye.
”It starts with a book. Well, I have a book that I really wanted. It was about a person. I saved a lot of money to buy that book. I finally got enough for it one day and placed an order to buy the book…That book was a semi-autobiography, and it told a story about a person’s life…”
He began to talk about the time that he was a child, and up until he opened the book, he told Xia Ye everything.
Xia Ye didn’t understand at first, but after gradually listening, his expression began to change.
Tang Jinyu said it all in one breath. Although it was brief, it was two periods of more than ten years. His throat felt dry and it hurt.
Xia Ye poured him a glass of water, watched him drink it, and his eyebrows furrowed : “You mean, you came here after you opened the book? But in the other world, you are doing everything in a dream. How can you be sure? Where is the real existence?”
Tang Jinyu shook his head and said honestly: “I don’t know either.”
He thought for a while, and then said, “Brother, I think both sides are true. It should be parallel time and space, time cracks?”
Xia Ye looked at him for a moment and said, “Don’t tell other people about this, it’s enough for me to know.”
Tang Jinyu nodded, “Oh, good.”
Seeing his dazed little face, Xia Ye sat down and hugged him, soothing: “Don’t think about it so much, as long as you know, I will give you whatever you want.”
Tang Jinyu lay in his arms and nodded, whispering okay.
Xia Ye’s arms are very warm, the temperature he has been accustomed to since childhood, and the strength of his palms is also great, and he can easily be picked up. When the hands stroked his back, Tang Jinyu was immersed in a kind of In the unspeakable sense of security.
It seems that he has finally found a safe haven, and he doesn’t have to run around on his own.
”Brother, I want to find Grandpa and pick him up to live a good life…”
”Okay, I’ll help you find him, I’ll take you there tomorrow.”
