Mr. Yuan is Always Unhappy - Chap 27
Edited by Yummers
As Yuan Rui put away his little accounting book, someone rang his doorbell.
He was a bit surprised. Who could it be at this time? If there was any work, Zhao Zhengyi would’ve called him in advance before coming to pick him up.
He walked up to the security camera monitor to take a look, then his whole body lunged back immediately. He rushed to the bathroom, quickly tidied up his appearance a bit before jogging out to open the door.
Bai Tu stood at the entrance, speaking a little unnaturally, “Sorry to bother you, are you busy right now?”
Was his male god here to visit him? Yuan Rui was overjoyed. His head instantly shook like a pellet drum, answering him in a nervous tone, “No no, come on in.”
Bai Tu replied, “There’s no need. I was going to go to the supermarket and wanted to see if you had the time to…”
Before he could even finish, Yuan Rui cut in, “I do! Wait a little bit! I’ll grab my jacket and wallet!”
His mood resembled a roller coaster flying to its peak. The tiny man in his brain continued to laugh, “Ahaha…ahahaha…ahahahaha!” His male god must’ve thought he wasn’t a bad person, or else there’d be no other reason why he would initiate going to the supermarket together.
Even when standing shoulder to shoulder with Bai Tu in the elevator, he felt like he was in a dream.
Strictly speaking, he and Bai Tu had only interacted once, which was the last time they went to the supermarket. What did Bai Tu like about him? How steady he pushed the shopping cart? Or how good he was at picking vegetables? Or how his quiet-as-a-fly manner was very suitable to be a follower of his?
His mind was clouded. He wasn’t too sure what outstanding performance he had done in order to receive the acting king’s favor.
“Was it too rude of me,” Bai Tu spoke up, “to show up so unexpectedly?”
Yuan Rui quickly denied, “Of course not! Honestly, I really wanted to visit you upstairs too, but I felt too embarrassed to.”
It was obvious that Bai Tu seemed more relaxed then. “Whenever you have a day off in the future, you can always come by and hang out at my place.”
The corner of Yuan Rui’s lips were about to reach his ears. Did Bai Tu consider him a friend now? No no, there’s still a bit of a way to go before becoming friends, they’re good neighbors right now, good neighbors!
The two went downstairs, as they walked down the road established within the neighborhood, Bai Tu said, “I actually wasn’t certain if you were home or not, I wanted to try ringing the doorbell. I’ve lived here for 5 years and always went to the supermarket by myself. I never felt anything off about it. But after our last trip, I went there by myself again a couple of times and the road to the supermarket suddenly seemed quite long for some reason.”
Yuan Rui was very understanding. “I get it. When I was single, I always felt lonely walking by myself too.”
Bai Tu, “…”
“…Oh no, I forgot that my agent said I’m not allowed to tell anyone!”
Bai Tu laughed and said, “I’ve seen your boyfriend before. He drives a Lexus, right?”
Yuan Rui looked at him in shock.
“I’ve lived here for 5 years. Whoever lives below me and above me, I’m all very aware of.”
Yuan Rui felt awkward. “Yeah…I’m that. But I didn’t mean it that way when I said I like you, don’t misunderstand. I just really like you as an actor, you’ve been my idol since junior high.”
Bai Tu’s age wasn’t far off from his. Though Bai Tu had already debuted when he was 17. He had already risen to fame when Yuan Rui was still a junior high student.
“Thank you.” Bai Tu smiled. “I didn’t misunderstand either. I know you’re not that type of person.”
Yuan Rui didn’t really understand him. What kind of person was he not like? But since asking that question would make him seem dumb, he pretended to know what the other meant.
On the way back from the supermarket, Bai Tu asked him, “Is your boyfriend coming back for lunch today?”
Yuan Rui answered truthfully, “No, there wouldn’t be enough time, their company’s a bit far from here.”
Bai Tu suggested, “How about you go to my place? I was going to cook anyway, one more person isn’t much of a problem.”
Yuan Rui, “……”
He was more joyed than how he would be at winning some kind of grand prize. He put down all his things at home, then ran to the 22nd floor excitedly.
Bai Tu’s home was very clean. There were two same-sized slippers with similar designs at the entrance. Bai Tu took out another pair from the shoe cabinet for him. On his table were two cups with the same design, the only difference was their color. Even the two Chow Chow puppies he owned looked the exact same, they were only different in gender and personality. The male one was a bit bigger and very lively. He warmed up to Yuan Rui super fast as he started to circle around his legs, while the female one was a bit more aloof.
So Bai Tu and Liang Xi lived together? Yuan Rui always thought that they were purely neighbors who both lived on the twenty-second floor.
He initially wanted to help Bai Tu cook as well, but he only ended up doing the prep work and contributing a little. After all, he was the guest and Bai Tu seemed like he wanted to show off his skills.
Bai To seemed to be in a very good mood. It was quite a change compared to the past aloof appearance he’d always put on.
Yuan Rui was both happy and sad. His male god must’ve been lonely, right? Or else why would he ask him——a neighbor he’d only interacted with a few times——to hang out with him? To begin with, it was hard to make sincere friends in the entertainment industry. For Bai Tu who entered the circle at such an early age and with so much fame, it must’ve been even worse for him. Adding on the fact that he was now seized by Liang Xi. What an unfortunate life his good-looking male god has…sigh, everything will get better. There was no way Liang Xi could seize his male god for the rest of his life.
Later that evening, Zheng Qiuyang called to inform him that he couldn’t come back to eat due to a business dinner.
Ever since they started dating, aside from when Zheng Qiuyang had to go visit his mom sometimes, he would usually always come home for dinner. As a designer, he wasn’t required to have a big role in the interaction and relations portion of the business, so he didn’t have to really socialize with contractors and such.
Yuan Rui assumed that he was out drinking with friends. He kept telling him to not drive after drinking. Then, he ate dinner by himself, and watched his drama by himself as well.
Yuan Rui took a shower when he was done with the drama, then after he watched two more episodes of Conan, Zheng Qiuyang finally came home.
“How much did you drink?” Yuan Rui quickly went up to support him on his way to the bathroom when he saw how wobbly his legs were. He asked, “Who did you eat with? How did you get home?”
Zheng Qiuyang was hovering over the toilet, he gagged for a while but nothing came out. He answered, “I called for a designated driver, I didn’t drive, I remember what you said.”
Yuan Rui helped him up as he said, “Sigh, if I knew you would drink this much, I would’ve picked you up. I heard there’s a lot of bad DD’s out there these days. Just the other day I saw a DD without a license and had no sense of direction on the news. They were also drunk while driving their client. Fortunately, nothing happened today. I’ll go pick you up when you drink again next time.”
Zheng Qiuyang bent over to wash his face.
Yuan Rui wiped off the water on his arms and face with a towel as he continued to speak, “Don’t shower now, it’ll lower your blood sugar too much. It’s also bad for your eyes, just take one tomorrow morning when you wake up.”
Zheng Qiuyang complied, “Mn.”
Yuan Rui helped him to the bed. He laid him down, helping undress the other out of his jacket and pants. Zheng Qiuyang’s head was spinning so much, all he had to do was close his eyes and in no time, he was snoring softly.
Yuan Rui laid beside him. He had his head turned to look at the other for a moment before closing the bedside lamp.
At midnight, Zheng Qiuyang turned and tossed. His throat felt uncomfortable as a cough came out.
Yuan Rui immediately asked him, “Do you feel like vomiting?”
Zheng Qiuyang replied, “No, just a bit thirsty. Go back to sleep, I’m going to get some water.”
Just as he wanted to sit up, Yuan Rui had already turned the light on and jumped off the bed. He returned quickly with a cup of water, then sat on the bedside, rubbing his eyes.
Zheng Qiuyang took a drink and asked, “Did you not sleep at all?”
Yuan Rui said with a frown, “I did. I dreamed that you vomited, your vomit filled the entire house and both of us were soaked in it.”
“……That dream’s really disgusting.”
“Hahaha, that’s why I woke up right when you moved.”
Zheng Qiuyang also chuckled. He spread his arms. “Come over here, give me a hug.”
Yuan Rui took off his slippers and got on the bed from Zheng Qiuyang’s side. The two ended up in a cuddle.
Yuan Rui took a sniff. “You smell like alcohol all over.”
“Is it really bad? I can’t tell.”
Yuan Rui shook his head. He looked into his eyes as he said with a smile, “It’s alright, your scent isn’t bad.”
He was so adorable in Zheng Qiuyang’s eyes, he couldn’t help but touch his body tenderly.
Yuan Rui rubbed his eye again, asking, “Do you want to do it?”
Zheng Qiuyang could see how exhausted he was, so he said, “No. The alcohol makes me take longer to come, we’d be up until morning.”
Yuan Rui rubbed against him in his embrace gently. “It’s okay, I have the day off tomorrow.”
“Let’s not. My reaction’s delayed too, I don’t want to hurt you again.”
“Alright. Then, I’ll tell you what I did during the day.”
Zheng Qiuyang agreed, “Okay.”
But in less than half a minute, he started to regret it.
“My male god’s food is so delicious!” Yuan Rui was not tired at all. He rambled on about his daytime adventure endlessly like beans spilling out of a bag. He motioned with his limbs in happiness as he continued, “And I could never have imagined that someone could look so handsome just by tying an apron around them! Ah, I was so blessed today!”
Once he was done story-telling, he rolled on the bed a couple of times. At last, he rolled to Zheng Qiuyang and hugged him, he expressed proudly, “Now, I am an individual who has shared a meal with Bai Tu. But I can’t show it off on Weibo, or else…sigh.”
Zheng Qiuyang wasn’t completely sober in the first place. Hearing him rambling on for so long, his headache grew stronger. So much that he could’ve just passed out. He had thoughts of the following, Why do I have to listen to him talk about another man in such a dizzy state? Why didn’t I just press him down and fucked his brains out earlier?
Yuan Rui was still holding onto him, shaking him around. His mouth never stopped, “I love Bai Tu so much! What do I do? I love him so much I could die!”
Zheng Qiuyang sat up abruptly.
Yuan Rui was taken back. He said astonishingly, “Are you going to vomit? Swallow it back down for now, I’ll go grab a bucket.”
Zheng Qiuyang looked at him with a cold expression. “My lower half wants to vomit.”
And so, with a red face, he took off his pajama pants obediently.
