Stand-in Relationship - Chap 3
On Friday, it was rare to see a big sun outside.
He Yang took Xu Chengyan and went back to the main house of the He family.
Six years ago, Father He had a car accident and never got better. He could only sit in a wheelchair and was not very conscious.
After He Yang took over the He family, he placed Father He in the old house to recuperate, and came back to visit once every two months.
The main house of the He family is slightly remote, in the suburbs.
When Xu Chengyan entered the courtyard of the main house, he saw a big black and white dog lying on the lawn basking in the sun.
Xu Chengyan shouted, “QiQi!”
When the big dog, who was still basking in the sun, heard the sound, he immediately pricked up his ears, and instantly straightened up to look over, and then he rushed towards Xu Chengyan.
Xu Chengyan squatted down slightly and hugged the big dog.
But because the big dog was so big, Xu Chengyan was hit by the big dog and fell to the lawn.
And the big dog pounced on Xu Chengyan, and kept digging into Xu Chengyan’s arms.
Xu Chengyan finally sat up straight and patted the big dog’s head, “Are you gaining weight again?”
The big dog was stupid, he just barked at Xu Chengyan a few times, and then continued to stick to Xu Chengyan’s arms.
This big dog is the Alaskan Malamute raised by He Yang and has been kept in the main house.
It’s just strange that QiQi is not close to the master He Yang, nor is he close to the servants and housekeepers in the main house, but is the closest to Xu Chengyan.
Just like now, QiQi was completely stuck to Xu Chengyan and refused to let go.
He Yang entered the house first and said to the housekeeper, “Where’s he?”
The housekeeper said quickly: “Master is in the rest room.”
He Yang nodded and went upstairs first.
On the lawn in the yard, Xu Chengyan played with QiQi to pick up the Frisbee for a while, and got a little tired.
The energy of the Alaskan dog is really good, as if it will never be tired, full of energy.
But Xu Chengyan has no strength, and can’t be with him anymore.
Xu Chengyan sat on the chair next to him and rested first, while QiQi ran over with the Frisbee in his mouth, took the initiative to put the Frisbee by Xu Chengyan’s hand, and shook his tail again.
Xu Chengyan reached out and rubbed QiQi’s head, and said in a low voice, “I have no strength, I will play with you later.”
QiQi seemed to understand a little bit, and didn’t pester Xu Chengyan to play games anymore, just sat quietly on the ground and put his head on Xu Chengyan’s lap.
Xu Chengyan helped QiQi rub his head to smoothen his hair, and because he stayed under the sun for so long, and played games with QiQi, he was sweating a little.
So Xu Chengyan got up and walked towards the old house, ready to rest.
But when Xu Chengyan went upstairs, he heard a voice from the kitchen downstairs–
“Young Master He is in the room on the third floor, don’t bother you.”
“What’s the matter, wait until Young Master He comes down from the third floor.”
Xu Chengyan glanced towards the kitchen and saw that the housekeeper was instructing the servants.
Xu Chengyan withdrew his gaze and went back to the room with QiQi.
The room where he rests is on the second floor, while Mr.’s room is on the third master bedroom.
Mr.’s room is very mysterious. Except for necessary cleaning, no one is usually allowed to enter.
Every time Mr. returned to the main house, he would spend an afternoon alone in the master bedroom before coming to the second floor to find him.
At the beginning, Xu Chengyan was also curious about what was in the master bedroom on the third floor and why he stayed all afternoon.
Later, Xu Chengyan had more contact, and occasionally he heard some mentions from the servants in the house, and he knew that the things in the master bedroom were related to a person.
And Xu Chengyan also knew something about “that person”.
That person is the young master from the next door, and the person that Mr. used to like.
Young master and husband grew up together, childhood sweethearts without guessing, and they are also the right couple.
It’s just that something happened to the young master’s house later, and the matter became a bit big. The young master had to go abroad to go to relatives to avoid the limelight.
And the husband and the young master have been separated since then.
Xu Chengyan stayed in the room alone, thinking about the young master and his husband, and was a little distracted for a while.
Suddenly, Xu Chengyan felt a fluffy touch on his arm, and when he looked down, he found that QiQi was pulling his arm and got into his arms.
Animals are very sensitive to human emotions,QiQi noticed a little, so he used his big fluffy head to arch around in Xu Chengyan’s arms.
Seeing QiQi’s silly appearance, Xu Chengyan felt relieved a little, and reached out and rubbed his head on QiQi’s head, and said softly,
Isn’t it just a first love? it’s common.
They are all adults, whether it’s their first love or their ex, it’s normal, and it’s okay to fall in love if you want, not to mention that the husband and the young master were not together at that time.
These things are all memories of Mr.’s past, and what has happened in the past cannot be changed.
He doesn’t mind Mr.’s past, as long as Mr. is by his side now.
Memories are always memories, only live in memories.
He doesn’t mind.
Just a little bit sad.
Only a little bit.
