"What nonsense are you guys yelling about!" Su Tang was furious when he heard this. He looked like a kitten whose tail had been stepped on, and he revealed a fierce expression.
The few of them were also shocked. However, they had good mental fortitude; even when they were chased around by their teachers on regular days, they wouldn't be afraid. Hence, they certainly wouldn't be scared of Su Tang's kitten-like squeals.
However, Chi Shuyan was standing beside the kitten, so they had to be consideration of him. Hence, as they ran, they looked back, but when they saw Chi Shuyan's amused expression, they felt relieved. They grinned mischievously at Su Tang before disappearing in the next instance.
Su Tang was stunned. He looked at the entrance, then at Chi Shuyan, and finally asked, "They ran away just like that?"
"Yes." Chi Shuyan stifled his laughter and simply said, "They are usually even faster than this."
"But… oh, forget it." Su Tang appeared somewhat unconvinced. Sitting on the stool, he kicked its legs twice, puffed his cheeks, but he was still angry. Hence, he directly sprawled on the table, turned his face and stared at Chi Shuyan.
"What's wrong, Baby?" Chi Shuyan feigned ignorance as he asked Su Tang.
"They're making fun of us." Su Tang said angrily.
"Because they called you Mrs. President?" Chi Shuyan asked with a smile.
"Yes." Su Tang wanted to nod, looking aggrieved like a pitiful rabbit.
"You don't like it? Then I'll tell them not to call you that in the future. "Chi Shuyan felt a little regretful, because he quite liked it. It was like putting his seal on Su Tang, and it pleased him.
"I'm not…" Su Tang's face turned crimson. For some strange reason, he suddenly buried his head into his arms like a shy little rabbit.
"Why are you hiding again?" Chi Shu's tone was a little helpless, but it was filled with a thick layer of doting. He reached out to ruffle Su Tang's hair, wanting to help him relax.
"I'm sorry…" Su Tang said this out of the blue. Seeing that Chi Shuyan was a little confused, he continued," Actually, it's not that I don't like them calling me that. I just… I just wanted to know if they gave someone else this nickname in the past before I transferred to this school."
When he said this, his voice was already so soft that it was almost inaudible. He admitted that he was a little petty and couldn't take the joke. He also hated being like this, and he didn't expect that he would show such an annoying side of himself to Chi Shuyan.
He felt a little regretful. He wanted to turn back time or even delete that memory. Unfortunately, he couldn't do any of that.
"I'm sorry…" Su Tang whispered weakly again.
"Why do you have to apologize?" Chi Shuyan's voice remained gentle. His fingers gently brushed Su Tang's fringe, then moved to his neck and tickled Su Tang, making him feel a slight itch.
All he wanted was for Su Tang to sit up and unhide his face. Otherwise, he would definitely feel uncomfortable after being cooped up in that arm for such a long time.
But Su Tang bore with it, and simply said, "I think I'm too petty."
"You're hiding because of this?" Chi Shuyan did not know whether to laugh or cry. He carried Su Tang and placed him on his lap. The other party still had his head lowered and his hands were fidgeting nervously.
"I don't think you're petty at all. On the contrary, I think you're exceptionally cute. I don't know about other people, but I really like it."
When Su Tang looked up in surprise and saw Chi Shuyan's serious gaze, he was at a loss. What did Chi Shuyan just say to him? Cute? Like? How was this possible? Was he dreaming?
"Little fool, you were still so sensitive just now, so why have you fallen into a daze again?" Chi Shuyan tapped the tip of his nose. Su Tang rubbed his nose and finally said, "I think you're just trying to coax me."
"Of course I'm coaxing you. That's because I like you. Think about it. If I really hated you, how could I be like this, hugging you?"
After Chi Shuyan said this, he realized that Su Tang didn't have much of a reaction. He knew that the latter was either too embarrassed to admit it, or was still hesitant, so he inched closer to him and asked, "You still don't believe me? How about this?"
He kissed one side of Su Tang's face.
Su Tang suddenly looked up. There wasn't any hints of sadness on his face, simply a rosy glow and an extremely embarrassed expression.
"You're the only one I've only kissed, and the only one I've ever liked. Even my dreams are about you." Chi Shuyan chuckled, then added, "Tell me, who else in the world will be as obsessed as I am?"
"Probably no one else…" Su Tang whispered, as the corners of his lips curled up.
"As for those rumors, I didn't pay much attention to them. They can say whatever thay like, but my liking you is our own matter. Rumors are fleeting, but we're going to spend the rest of our lives forever."
"So… are you still jealous?" Chi Shuyan finally asked.
"I'm not jealous." Su Tang was a little annoyed because his thoughts were exposed, but on second thought, he couldn't help it, so he said unhappily, "Isn't that because you're just too outstanding? That's why girls will have crushes on you, and I... and I would act like this."
"Oh, you can even blame me for this?" Chi Shuyan couldn't help but laugh. In the end, he patted Su Tang's little butt and said, "I don't care who else likes me. I only care about whether little classmate Su Tang likes me."
"Then you should keep on caring." Su Tang was elated, so he didn't want to think about anything else. He simply looked up and told Chi Shuyan, "But you don't have to be afraid. I will always like you."
"That's great." Chi Shuyan smiled as he lowered his head and gently kissed Su Tang's lips.
Su Tang could not react in time, so he only blinked his eyes. His expression delighted Chi Shuyan, and all the latter wanted was to press him down to continue kissing him.
But he was afraid that he would scare his little rabbit away.
"Come on, let's go shopping. We can also buy some things that we need to bring tomorrow." Chi Shuyan stood up and held Su Tang's hand, and the couple walked out together.
There were many people on the streets. After all, it was nearing the National Day holiday, so most people would go shopping. At the entrance of the mall, there were even all sorts of colorful banners, and many merchants would set up a stage and events and gifts to attract customers.
Su Tang was very curious, but because it was too crowded, he could not see anything. Hence, he asked Chi Shuyan to tell him everything he saw.
Chi Shuyan was 1.87M tall, so he was an eye-catching presence in the crowd. Coupled with his handsome looks, he was noticed by the host when he glanced at the stage.
"This young man is so handsome. Do you want to play a game?"
Chi Shuyan waved his hand in rejection, then lowered his head to say a few words to Su Tang. The host then said, "Handsome boy, you're here with your girlfriend, aren't you? As long as you come on stage, you'll get a reward. It's a furry little doll, isn't that a good gift for your girlfriend?" The host didn't bother taking a close look, and simply wanted to entice him to come on stage. After all, with his good looks, he would certainly attract a wider audience.
Everyone turned and looked back when they heard that, and while they realized that this young man was very handsome, they didn't see his girlfriend.
However, the boy standing beside him was also very good-looking.
No one thought too much about it, and all they did was to keep sizing the two men up. Su Tang was natually shy and couldn't stand the attention, so he tugged Chi Shuyan's shirt and said, "I don't want to play…"
Chi Shuyan also wasn't very keen on this, so he nodded and said to the host, "I'm sorry, we're not interested. Thank you."
Su Tang heaved a sigh of relief and dragged Chi Shuyan away quickly, leaving behind a group of confused people.
After that, Su Tang was no longer curious the events by those merchants. He simply followed Chi Shuyan obediently, observing what he bought, and then he would buy the same thing.
Time flew by, and it was 5PM in the blink of an eye. However, Su Tang was still a little reluctant to return home.
"Are you that reluctant to part with me?" Chi Shuyan smiled, and Su Tang nodded.
"It's not like we won't see each other after we go home. Aren't we going out to play tomorrow?" Chi Shuyan comforted Su Tang again.
"Alright…" Su Tang replied. Chi Shuyan got a cab for him. Before he opened the door, Su Tang suddenly turned around and jumped on Chi Shuyan.
"See you tomorrow!" After saying that, he secretly took a whiff of Chi Shuyan's scent before turning around and jumping into the car.
"Handsome boy, where are you going?" the driver asked.
"Xicheng Park." After Su Tang said that, he realized that his voice was still trembling. He coughed a few times and tried to calm himself down, but his heart was still pounding so wildly from the sweetness it seemed as though it was going to jump out of his chest.
"Is that your brother?" the driver asked casually.
"Oh, you can say that." Su Tang stammered, then rolled down the car window. The breeze from outside could calm him down.
As soon as the car started, Su Tang couldn't sit still. He picked up his phone, then put it down again. Finally, he couldn't stand it anymore, so he turned his body and leaned onto the seat and took a look behind.
Chi Shuyan was still standing where he was. When he saw Su Tang looking at him, he smiled and waved at him.
Su Tang blushed and quickly sat back down. Before he could think of what he wanted to do, his phone rang.
It was Chi Shuyan.
"Shuyan?” He picked up the phone almost immediately. He was nervous and excited, so even his breathing was erratic, while he quietly listened to the other end of the phone.
"It's me," replied Chi Shuyan.
"You… what's the matter?" Su Tang stammered, not knowing what he was talking about.
"I have something." Chi Shuyan smiled and said, "Something important."
"What is it?" Su Tang heard Chi Shuyan's voice, and suddenly, he was anticipating his reply.
"I miss you very much. What should I do?" asked Chi Shuyan.
