I Like Your Pheromones - Chap 17
Besides Shen Chilie, Duan Jiayan’s group had no other notable competitors.
As they reached the end of the competition, only he and Shen Chilie were really competing.
Both of them were outstanding in appearance. One of them was a school tyrant who had all kinds of rumors flying around. Many people gathered around to watch with great interest, with many of the young girls around looking with bright eyes.
At the last bar, Duan Jiayan barely scraped over the bar, while Shen Chilie knocked into the pole.
It was a narrow victory.
After losing to him, Shen Chilie didn’t mind and even came over to put his arm around his shoulder: “My son is still fierce.”
Duan Jiayan avoided him: “Go away. Your pheromones are almost leaking out.”
Shen Chilie: “Remember this taste. It’s the scent of your father.”
Duan Jiayan: “Fuck off.”
After the high jump, Duan Jiayan went to use the restroom and staggered back to the class ten camp. Before he even returned, he saw that there was a large group of people gathered there.
There seems to be something wrong.
“What happened?” Duan Jiayan walked close and asked.
“Zhou Xingchen was walking while playing with his mobile phone. He wasn’t paying attention and twisted his foot.” The girl next to him answered worriedly: “He might not be able to run the 3000.”
Duan Jiayan also looked over.
Zhou Xingchen was sitting while Lu Xingci was asking him about his condition besides him.
Unexpectedly, it was in Lu Xingci’s eyes where morale dimmed. In a monotone voice, he said: “How will you run? Will you charge past the finished line with a twisted ankle? If you really do it, then the school referees should give you a disabled-yet-strong-willed prize.”
“…” The surrounding students were currently taking care of his foot injury. Zhou Xingchen was already ashamed, but after being scolded by Lu Xingci, he felt even more crestfallen.
Lu Xingci faced him for a second, and then held out his hand: “Give me your number.”
“Don’t do it. You just did the 800.” Zhou Xingchen shook his head: “Letting Chen Yue replace me should be fine. Where is he?”
“He’s at the shot put roll call.”
“…” Zhou Xingchen was silent for a moment, but he simply didn’t want to give Lu Xingci his number. Seeing this play out, a certain boy voluntarily said:
“What if I do it? However, I’m not as fast as Zhou Xingchen and I might not be able to get that high of a ranking.”
“No need, let me run. With your speed, who knows if we might even be able to call this competition the hare vs tortoise.” As that boy was talking, he walked about to take the number.
“Turtle, do you think you’re better than me? Last time, who was the one running the 1500-meter race yet dying to lay down lifeless on the sports field?
“I can also run, but I probably can’t beat the sports class…”
“3000 meters and 1500 meters should both have 5 points, right? The same as the relay race. These are the highest valued events in the competition.” See as there’s a lot of talking, a girl analyzed logically: “The girls in our class definitely can’t beat the sports class. We should pick a strong boy to do the 3000.”
“The question is where do we find such a God? There are only ten minutes before it starts–”
“I’ll run for you.” Duan Jiayan took a step forward and walked over, stopping in front of Zhou Xingchen: “Give me the number.”
Seeing that it’s him, the eyes of a few girls lit up: “That’s right, that’s right. Duan Jiayan can run!”
Those boys also woke up from their dreams: “That’s true, we forgot about Brother Duan.”
Lu Xingci looked back, and his sights landed on his face.
Zhou Xingchen saw that it was him and his eyesight drifted for a bit. His rationale told him that giving his number to Duan Jiayan was the best choice. But emotionally wise, he can’t really accept help from this person.
“The winner of 3000 meters gets 5 points, the runner up gets 3 points, and whoever gets third place gets 2 points.” Zhou Xingchen opened his mouth all of a sudden and his eyes radiated a bit of hostility.
Duan Jiayan lazily raised his eyes: “I’ll get the 5 points.”
“Do you know that the sports class has a special student, an athlete from the provincial sports
“So there’s actually a guy like this in the competition?” Duan Jiayan paused and saw Zhou Xingchen give him an expression that asked “are you unaware of the opponent’s strength?” He continued slowly: “I’ll still get the 5 points.”
Zhou Xingchen was stunned. For a moment, he didn’t know why this person could be so arrogant. Lu Xingci, who was standing next to him, directly lifted Zhou Xingchen’s number tag off of his shirt.
He said to Duan Jiayan: “Come here.”
Zhou Xingchen felt betrayed, subconsciously blurted out a bitter “brother Lu…”.
Lu Xingci glanced at him.
Because of that one look, Zhou Xingchen swallowed his remaining struggle. Duan Jiayan watched this play out and couldn’t help laughing. And the normally never-obedient Duan Jiayan over to Lu Xingci.
When the number tag was stuck onto him, Duan Jiayan said to Zhou Xingchen: “Sorry, your brother Lu thinks I’m more reliable.”
Zhou Xingchen: “Do you know what this is called?”
Duan Jiayan: “Someone intoxicated by success? Relying on powerful connections? No matter what it’s called, I will be standing on the runway in a moment and you will be cheering me on.”
Zhou Xingchen: “…”
Duan Jiayan suddenly asked: “I’ll help you get first place, so shouldn’t you also help me with something?”
Zhou Xingci answered unhappily: “Is me cheering you on not enough?”
“It’s not enough.” Duan Jiayan raised his chin. He knew that Zhou Xingchen didn’t like him that much, so given this opportunity, if he doesn’t deal with this person, he won’t give up: “Do you see that platform? I’ll have to trouble you to use “Duan Jiayan is the most reliable” as your prompt and write an eight-hundred-word piece of praises which you will shout when standing up there.”
Zhou Xingchen had never seen such a shameless person. While his jaw was still dropped, Lu Xingci gave Duan Jiayan a slight nudge: “Go to roll call. He will write you an essay to cheer you on later.”
Zhou Xingchen: “No?? Has anyone asked me for my opinion??”
“Do you have any objections?” Lu Xingci looked back at him and the corner of his mouth was raised. His smile was a little muddy: “Even if you do, don’t bother saying them.”
Zhou Xingchen was afraid to say anything because of Lu Xingci’s look. Seeing this, Duan Jiayan walked to roll call feeling very satisfied.
When Duan Jiayan left, Zhou Xingchen couldn’t help asking, “Brother Lu, why do you speak for him?”
Seeing Zhou Xingchen’s disheartened appearance, Lu Xingci sneered: “Next time, if you can stand on that runway in one piece, I will not only speak for you but will also write you an 800-word essay to cheer you on.”
“Go. Write him the essay.”
“Really? I thought you were coaxing him.”
Lu Xingci lazily picked at his eyebrow and repeated those two words: “Coaxing him?”
“…I’ll do that right now.”
Once the starting pistol sounded to indicate the start of the 3000-meter race, enthusiastic cheers broke out all over the sports field.
On the announcing platform, Gu Li, who was in charge of reading writings to cheer on races, received the essay written by Zhou Xingchen. As before, he spoke in a pleasant voice full of passion:
“For the 3000-meter race, being weak is the original sin. But you can always rely on Duan Jiayan because he never commits crimes.”
Chen Yuegang held the shot put in his hand. Hearing the essay, his hand slipped and almost dropped the shot put.
At the end of the round, he walked over to Lu Xingci:
“Which idiot wrote that speech? I almost dropped the shot put right in front of me
“…Did he finally go crazy?”
Once again, Gu Li’s voice came from the announcement radio, echoing in every corner of the campus:
“Classmate Duan Jiayan from Class ten, when you stand on the 3000-meter runway, I realize such a handsome and shining figure really exists! I can’t believe it even if I’m seeing it with my own eyes! Who sent you to this world!”
Chen Yue and Lu Xingci looked at each other. Lu Xingci hesitated: “Did Gu Li write that?”
Because two waves of cheering speeches broke through the sky, students from other classes on the sports field began to cheer loudly for the athletes from their own classes.
At the end of the race, Duan Jiayan and the special student of the sports class were running in front while the others lagged behind a lot. With one and a half laps to go, Duan Jiayan panted and panted. His chest hurt a little.
With the last lap left, the tanned student stood at the finish line and roared: “Brother Lin! Run! If we don’t look better than the others, can we still lose to others in running?! As sports students, will we still have a reputation?!”
Duan Jiayan: “…”
The special student was invigorated by that yell, carrying the hope of the whole sports class, he began to rush forward as if the bottoms of his feet were smeared with oil.
Seeing that he was about to pull ahead by a lot, Duan Jiayan gritted his teeth and began to quicken his pace as he remembered how he had acted so enormously in front of Zhou Xingchen.
The two figures were neck and neck.
They ran so fast that they even lapped all the other competitors. Duan Jiayan followed as he watched the special sports student brush past the third-place runner-
The whole audience was in an uproar.
This kind of life-on-the-line competition sparked the mood of the audience. The students on the sports field started running with the competitors. Duan Jiayan has never run a long-distance race at such a fast speed. He felt that his heart was about to crack.
Is he about to lose?
The special sports student is too fast. They have already pulled ahead by a distance of half the playground. At the thought of Zhou Xingchen’s super stupid cheering speech, Duan Jiayan put his all into moving forward.
If he loses, he will be ridiculed by Zhou Xingchen for three days and three nights.
–“No way. He doesn’t even have a goddamn window. He can’t become a laughing stock because of a cunt for the rest of his life… Come on, f-f-f-faster!
Run faster!! Try harder and you’ll win!!
Seeing the distance between the two people getting smaller and smaller, Song Yi yelled from the finishing line: “Xiao-Duan–”
Another boy in class 10 shouted: “School bully–”
Even Zhou Xingchen couldn’t help it: “Duan Jiayan, ruuuuun!!!! Aren’t you very strong!!!! I’ll admit that you are truly strong when you cross over here!!!”
The boy running towards them was flushed. He was pale and could be picked out easily in the crowd.
This was such a beautiful and lean Omega. If he stood there quietly, he really doesn’t look like a school tyrant.
But the ferocity of his sprinting surprised several people who were waiting at the finish line. Duan Jiayan looked like he threw away his light and in the last few seconds, he suddenly accelerated, and, finally, he crossed the finish line.
“Who? Who was faster! ” Chen Yue tugged at Lu Xingci: “I didn’t see clearly. Don’t scare me?”
Lu Xing’s voice was a little ambiguous. He took a sudden step forward. Shen Chilie, who was a little farther from the finish line, saw that Duan Jiayan was almost out of strength and was about to run over and help him.
Someone was a step ahead of him and caught Duan Jiayan, who almost knelt down.
“Fuck!! Did I fucking win??!!”
“God came down to earth and pressed against the headwind to make a comeback!”
“Brother Zhou, what is the slogan of our class?”
Zhou Xingchen was moved by this group of people and these words escaped his lips: “You can always rely on Duan Jiayan! Duan Jiayan is awesome! ”
Duan Jiayan ran out of strength and completely fell into that man’s arms.
It was both fresh and clear. He was surrounded by pheromones that he likes.
He couldn’t help but grasp at Lu Xingci’s sleeve, the latter’s smell was fatally attractive to him. Lu Xingci didn’t care about how he was covered in sweat. He took Duan Jiayan, who was still shivering, into his arms.
On the platform, Gu Li just watched this wonderful game and saw such a wonderful picture that she couldn’t help but scream with a mouthful of sugar: “Ahhhhhhhh–So sweettttttttttt–”
Her voice spread all over the campus. It was only until the whole school had resounded with her amazing sweet voice, did Gu Li just return to her senses.
She turned off the mic and quickly said to the surprised male broadcaster next to her: “Sorry, there was a bug on my arm just now.”
Male broadcaster: “…”
The person in his arms gradually stopped shaking and the fingers holding on to his sleeve also slowly loosened. Lu Xingci guessed that Duan Jiayan should be recuperated, and whispered in his ear: “Don’t stand still. I’ll walk half the track with you.”
“No,” Duan Jiayan said feebly. “I want to sit down. I don’t have any strength.”
“If you don’t walk, you may feel dizzy and maybe even go into shock after a bit.”
“Then let me go into shock. Remember to call an ambulance for me.” Duan Jiayan dropped down and looked like he was about to directly sit on the track. Lu Xingci didn’t know how he could be so soft as if he didn’t have bones. He swiftly picked up Duan Jiayan, who had already fallen halfway, put his arm around his shoulder, and forcibly tugged him along.
Duan Jiayan weakly mumbled from his shoulder: “Lu Xingci, let go.”
He even smacked Lu Xingci on the shoulder. Because he didn’t have much strength, it only felt like a scratch. “If I take one more step, my leg will break. If it breaks, will you be responsible for it?”
“It won’t break.”
“It already did.”
“Break it first. After half a lap, I’ll bring you back.”
Duan Jiayan made a fuss: “Isn’t it fucking useless to bring me back? It’s not comfortable at all. ”
Lu Xingci could do nothing because of Duan Jiayan who was wrapped around him. He could only drag him forward. He looked at him sideways and spoke in a light voice:
“How do you want to be comfortable?”
When he spoke, Duan Jiayan could almost feel the vibration of his throat.
“I want you to…” Duan Jiayan stopped and suddenly realized that it wasn’t right: ” Are you taking advantage of me?”
Chen Yue originally came to deliver grape candy, but when he heard this, he paused. He stuffed the grape candy into Lu Xingci’s hand and laughed: “Go on, go on. I won’t disturb you. ”
“Quick.” Duan Jiayan slapped him on the shoulder again and confidently ordered: “Open it for me. I’m so thirsty.”
Zhou Xingchen originally wanted to come over to congratulate. However, when he saw this, he was stunned and looked at Chen Yue.
There’s actually exists someone who dares to order around Lu Xingci?
Chen Yue shrugged his shoulders, indicating that he could not understand the development.
Duan Jiayan took the grape candy from Lu Xingci. When he finished drinking gulp after gulp, he held the empty glass bottle in his palm. He contentedly enjoyed the other’s pheromone.
“Ah, Lu Xingci.”
Duan Jiayan suddenly called out his name. Because he was comfortable, Duan Jiayan tried to get closer to his body. He leaned close.
He blew in his ear, and he licked his lips senselessly: “Am I awesome?”
The sound of him licking his lips was blocked by nothing and drilled straight into Lu Xingci’s ear.
The sweat, heat, and the slightly overflowing Omega pheromones–
It was a dizzying flowery smell.
It felt like he was surrounded by a field of flowers and flowers were blooming on him.
“You’re awesome,” Lu Xingci lowered his eyes. After glancing at Duan Jiayan’s pale face, he said slowly: “No one is more capable than you.”
