Stand-in Relationship - Chap 20
“Sir…” Xu Chengyan choked and wanted to say something, but couldn’t say anything.
Sir has never admitted their relationship.
It turns out that the past five years were all his wishful thinking.
“How can you say that, sir…” Xu Chengyan lowered his head, his fingertips tightly grasping the sheets under him.
Mr. is really cruel.
“Yanyan.” He Yang raised his hand slightly and rubbed the back of the young man’s head, “We are just living together, and at most we can only be regarded as bed companions.”
The man’s tone was a little careless, but Xu Chengyan didn’t want to listen to it anymore.
To Mr., he is just a cohabitation bed partner.
“Sir, I’m tired.” Xu Chengyan turned around as if escaping, and hid in the quilt, not wanting to speak.
He Yang was still sitting beside the bed, patted the young man lightly across the quilt, and said in a low voice, “Don’t think about those messy things, take the medicine.”
After speaking, He Yang got up and left the room.
Xu Chengyan was left alone in the bedroom, with his eyes closed and his body curled like a ball.
After a while, Xu Chengyan gradually calmed down, propped up a little tiredly, and took the medicine on the bedside table.
There is a glass of water next to the cold medicine, but the water in the glass was originally warm, but now it has become cold.
After taking the medicine, Xu Chengyan put on his coat and went outside.
The corridor was pitch-dark, and there was only a faint light from the study.
The door of the study room was not closed tightly, Xu Chengyan walked over step by step, and when he looked into the study room, he saw a man on the sofa, flipping through a photo album.
Xu Chengyan stood outside the study, staring at the figure for a long time, but in the end he didn’t go in, and turned around to go to the kitchen.
And because he was still catching a cold, Xu Chengyan didn’t have any appetite, so he grabbed something to eat and went back to the bedroom to continue lying on the bed.
It was already past eight o’clock in the evening, Xu Chengyan’s eyes were open, his body was obviously exhausted, but his mind was very awake and not sleepy.
I don’t know how long it took, when footsteps came from outside.
The bedroom door was pushed open, footsteps approached the bed step by step and came to the bed.
Xu Chengyan didn’t look back, but he could still feel the scent of warm steam coming from behind, as well as the faint scent of shower gel.
In the past, he liked the smell of water from his husband who just took a shower, and he would take the initiative to get into his arms every time.
But now, he just turned his back to Mr. and didn’t come close.
The two kept a distance between them, and neither of them met each other, and each slept separately.
In the middle of the night, Xu Chengyan woke up in a daze, disturbed by the movement around him.
Xu Chengyan opened it, and when he looked beside him, he saw a man sitting beside the bed, answering a phone call.
The voice on the other end of the phone was not very loud, but vaguely, Xu Chengyan heard the words “hospital” and “fever”.
The phone call was over soon, the man got up, took the clothes next to him and put them on, as if he was about to go out.
Xu Chengyan also sat up from the bed and asked aloud, “Sir, are you going out?”
“Yeah.” He Yang’s voice was a little cold.
Xu Chengyan took the phone and checked the time, it was already after one o’clock in the morning.
Although he had already guessed the reason why Mr. was going out, he still asked aloud, “Are you going to the hospital?”
“Shen Xiuzhu has a low-grade fever, I’ll take a look.” He Yang hurriedly changed his clothes, turned around and left.
Xu Chengyan looked at the man’s back, and couldn’t help but ran out of bed, without even wearing shoes, ran outside with bare feet, and shouted, “Sir!”
Xu Chengyan stood in the corridor, not far or near, and met the man’s gaze.
“It’s so late, do you have to accompany him, sir?” Xu Chengyan’s voice was still a little trembling.
He Yang frowned slightly and just said, “Don’t make trouble.”
After speaking, He Yang turned around and went out.
The door closing sounded.
Xu Chengyan stood there, still in a trance, looking in the direction of the door, still a little lost.
After a long time, Xu Chengyan moved his body and walked back step by step.
It’s just that when he came to the door of the bedroom, Xu Chengyan didn’t go in, but looked in the direction of the study.
Like a ghost, Xu Chengyan came to the study, pushed open the door, walked in, and turned on the light.
There was still the photo album that had not been put away on the study table, Xu Chengyan walked over and carefully picked up this old photo album.
The album is not very heavy, but Xu Chengyan held it in his hand, but felt that the album was so heavy that it was almost impossible to hold it.
The album is a little old, but it is well maintained, and it can be seen that the owner loves it very much.
Xu Chengyan was sitting on the sofa, looking at the album in his hand, dared not open it.
He clearly told himself rationally that he should not touch this album, but his body was still out of control, and he slowly opened the album——
Pandora’s Box has been opened.
On the first page of the album, there are several family photos.
Young and handsome couple holding a small baby and smiling at the camera.
On the second page of the photo album, the baby has grown up a bit, sitting on the grass wearing overalls, looking at the camera, but his face is expressionless and seems a little unhappy.
Xu Chengyan looked at this photo. Although the boy in the photo was very young, he still recognized it at a glance. It was a photo of Mr. when he was young.
The album was turned back, the boy gradually grew up, and another figure gradually appeared in the old photos.
Another boy who is slightly younger appears in the camera, going to the amusement park with Xiao He Yang, playing in the garden together, or going to school together.
Xiao He Yang grew up slowly, and the boy’s playmate also grew up with him.
The two have never been separated from their ignorant childhood to their youthful youth.
The two young looking youths in the photo were so happy when they laughed.
In the second half of the album, there are more and more photos of the two of them, including photos of participating in sports games, photos of participating in school performances, and photos of going out to play——
All are memories of the past.
Xu Chengyan looked at the photo of the husband and the young master, and touched the photo with his fingertips.
In the past five years, he didn’t have a single photo with Mr. Even a single photo, the husband does not allow him to take.
Before, he always thought that his husband didn’t like to take pictures, so he didn’t want to let him take pictures. But now he know, it’s not that the husband doesn’t like taking pictures together, but that he doesn’t want to take pictures with him.
The husband and the young master have taken so many photos together, and each photo is so intimate.
Two immature-looking teenagers have grown up with each other, and they are the most important existence for each other.
From the very beginning, what Mr. liked was Shen Xiuzhu, and it never changed.
Xu Chengyan was almost trembling, looking at the photos page by page.
Until he finished flipping through the album, he couldn’t control his emotions any longer.
