“when riding a bicycle, you must choose one that has a horizontal bar and no backseat”
DAY SIXTEEN【WHEN ON A BUS, YOU MUST NOT USE THE HANDRAILS AS SUPPORT AND CAN ONLY EMBRACE THE OTHER’S WAIST. SECRETLY KISS THE OTHER AND RUB AGAINST THEIR FACE】
Reality proved that the weather bureau was a woman. Moreover, she was an erratic woman.
When you wished that she would be accurate, she would be as accurate as the great aunt¹. When you wished that she wouldn’t be accurate…she would be accurate.
 大姨妈: translates to ‘great aunt’, which is used to refer to periods. So basically, the weather would not be accurate at all ~ *sighs*
Therefore, it was not only women and narrow-minded men who were difficult to deal with. The weather forecast was as well.
Hence, on this day, the weather forecast proudly announced——today it is sunny, so everyone please get up and sleep early and exercise more. For people who need to air their quilts, please don’t waste any time and quickly do so.
When Wang Guangning woke up in the morning and saw the bright sunshine outside the window, he decided that he had better go and study with Sun Siyang.
En, real men ought to attach the most importance to their work. True decent and honourable behaviour was properly studying and improving oneself every day.
Just as he was preparing to climb down from his bed and freshen up, Zhang Lingyi called him.
“Shou shou, look out of the window.” Zhang Lingyi’s voice surged with enthusiasm.
Wang Guangning subconsciously glanced out just like he had habitually done in the past. His expression did not change and instead, he said impatiently, “What for?”
Zhang Lingyi laughed happily, “Did you see that bright and dazzling sunshine?”
Wang Guangning, “……” What exactly are you trying to say?
“Shou shou, the weather is so good and shouldn’t waste such an opportunity. How about we go and ride a bus together?” Zhang Lingyi said. “I’ll come and find you at your dorm in fifteen minutes~”
Then he directly hung up the call.
Wang Guangning thought, (╰_╯)# didn’t we say that we would take a break from being gay today?
Although he was completely dissatisfied with Zhang Lingyi’s actions which were even more fickle than the weather forecast, Wang Guangning still quickly made himself presentable. Changing into a college styled shirt and paired with his short hair, Wang Guangning radiated youthfulness, looking neat and bright.
Zhang Lingyi wore a black sweater, with a hat covering his bald head. His hands were placed in his pockets, appearing very casual.
Scanning Wang Guangning from top to bottom, Zhang Lingyi smiled in satisfaction and said, “En, not bad. We’re indeed quite well-matched. Let’s go!”
Wang Guangning rolled his eyes and silently cursed in his heart, who’s well-matched with you! Laozi is a hundred times more handsome than you!
Even though he held an expression of unwillingness, Zhang Lingyi still followed Wang Guangning, his feet hitting the ground unfalteringly.
After walking a few steps, Zhang Lingyi found that Wang Guangning always ended up falling behind him. Reaching out with his arm, he seized Wang Guangning’s shoulder and smiled mischievously. “Shou shou, don’t stand so far away~ Otherwise, how will people know that we are together?”
Wang Guangning replied with disdain, “That’s because I actually don’t want people to know. With your appearance, those who don’t know might think you’re going to rob a bank!”
What Wang Guangning said was indeed correct. Although Zhang Lingyi was handsome, it was no match for his polished and shiny head. It was like he had just been released, and added with such a hat, Zhang Lingyi appeared suspiciously sneaky.
“Get lost! Laozi is elegant and graceful, with one look, you can tell that that I’m an elite of society. Even if I’m bald, it can’t restrict my natural temperament.” Zhang Lingyi laughed while reaching over to forcefully ruffle Wang Guangning’s fluffy head. “Besides, disregarding me, you’re not that much better off either!” With such short hair, it had just grown a few days earlier than him, that’s all.
Zhang Lingyi’s hand was large, and it practically covered the majority of Wang Guangning’s head. His palm was very warm, and the temperature as Zhang Lingyi stroked his hair was something which Wang Guangning was unable to describe with words. That kind of warmth, it seemed like it would flow down from his scalp, straight towards….his heart.
He must really be incurable!
Wang Guangning slapped his own head in defeat. Upon seeing this, Zhang Lingyi thought that the other was tacitly agreeing to his words. Smiling happily, he said. “Don’t be dejected, you must be filled with hope for yourself. You can be the second most handsome guy at F University!”
Not in the mood to bicker with him, Wang Guangning grabbed Zhang Lingyi’s hand that was still on his head with force. Turning it in the air, Wang Guangning threw the hand on Zhang Lingyi’s own head. In a bad-natured manner, he said, “Don’t touch me. If you want to touch, then touch your own head.”
Zhang Lingyi saw that Wang Guangning’s ill expression and didn’t dare to be too rash. He only curled his lips and muttered quietly, “And you’re supposed to be my shou. You won’t even let me touch your head, you must be a very stingy and proud shou!”
That’s right, as the person in charge of the student association, Zhang Lingyi was well-known to be very dedicated and professional. He had already formed that habit of putting in his utmost no matter what it was he did. Pretending to be gay was the same!
Through a period of study, Zhang Lingyi had already perfected all the technical terms from the danmei world. He had also entered the discussion circle of rotten women without much pressure. Thus, he had then made a logical and concise summary of Wang Guangning and his attributes. The final conclusion was that he himself was very handsome and domineering, combined with a simple and honest character. (orz Zhang xiao cao, how exactly did you think of this? Please give me guidance.) He was definite a loyal dog and an emperor type of gong. As for Wang Guangning, no matter how you looked at him, his entire body from top to bottom emitted the words ‘arrogant but loveable’.
Ah, it truly was an insightful analysis that made one unable to look straight at it!
The bus that the two people were taking was the one which operated in a circle around F University and various other high schools around the same area.
There were four other schools near F University, and the distance was neither too far nor very close. Students could reach each school simply by cycling. However, for those who relied on pure power and did not own a bicycle, such interaction did require comparatively more effort. Thus, a short-term public transport line was opened specifically between these five schools.
Usually, it would be overcrowded on this public transport line. However, since it was near the end of term, students were all frantically studying so there were scarcely any people on the bus.
Wang Guangning swiped his card and stepped onto the bus, secretly sighing in relief. Fortunately there weren’t many people and he didn’t see anyone he knew. Otherwise, he really would have the thickness of his face put to test.
There were still countless spare seats on the bus. Wang Guangning touched his face, and estimated that if he sat down in one, Zhang Lingyi would definitely pull him up right in front of the eyes of everyone else. Hence, he automatically walked towards the center door and leaned against the pole next to it.
Zhang Lingyi followed behind him. Yet, before he had balanced himself, the driver stepped on the throttle.
“Fuck.” Zhang Lingyi had wanted to take the opportunity to touch Wang Guangning’s waist but was not careful enough and did not end up standing firmly. With a boom, his entire person directly fell onto the ground.
Such a good standard dog position!
Such an incomparable way of saying fuck!
The expression on Wang Guangning’s face stiffened and he glanced around furtively. Sure enough, the focus of everyone on the bus was on Zhang Lingyi’s body. Their faces clearly showed sympathy yet carried a hint of schadenfreude, as if they wanted to laugh but also wanted to restrain themselves from doing so. Only, they were unsuccessful in their attempts.
Wang Guangning silently moved a few steps away. Fuck, this really was too shameful! He must definitely not let others know that they were together!
Zhang Lingyi appeared to also be wounded, and his face was still on the floor. He did not get up even after a long time.
Wang Guangning didn’t need to be sensitive of his reputation and face to the point of this, right?!
Wang Guangning’s mouth twitched and he struggled fiercely with his conscience. Just when he was hesitating about whether or not to walk over and give him a hand, Zhang Lingyi suddenly raised his head; the hat on his head dropped and exposed his bald head. He stared at Wang Guangning with bleary eyes while reaching out with one hand as he said, “……I’m……not drunk……”
Wang Guangning, “……”
Other people on the bus, “……”
Wang Guangning, “Wow, ha ha ha ha…”
How come Zhang Lingyi could always come up with such cheap tricks?
Wang Guangning was shocked until he ended up laughing without end, causing the other people on the bus to also give up trying to restrain themselves as they all laughed heartily.
The distance between the stations on this public transport line were quite short, so they very quickly arrived at the next one. Wang Guangning immediately escaped from thus bus, praying that the people inside would not remember him.
Zhang Lingyi also jumped down with an expression of discontent. “Shou shou, how can you be like this? You watched me fall and actually didn’t help me.”
Wang Guangning’s face was filled with black lines, “Didn’t you improvise very well?” In all honesty, this sentence he spoke was absolutely not a compliment.
However, it seemed that Zhang Lingyi’s narcissism had apparently exceeded the horizon. Instead of feeling ashamed, he beamed happily and said, “Ah, of course~ In any case, I am also a scholarship recipient so my brain is very reliable.”
Wang Guangning, “……”
“But shou shou, why did you get off the bus? I haven’t hugged your waist or rubbed against your face yet!” Zhang Lingyi was very distressed.
Wang Guangning exploded, “Who says you’re the one who has to hug my waist!”
Zhang Lingyi replied unhappily, “Could it be that you want someone else to hug your waist?!”
It was only then that Wang Guangning realised the ambiguity in his own words and said, “What I mean is that if we need to do this, then I should be the one hugging your waist!”
Hearing this, Zhang Lingyi straightened up, “I am the gong!”
He used this card every time!
Wang Guangning strongly wished to kneel down in a world of ice and snow and pray for an eight pack…ah, no. He wanted to pray for time to reverse so that when he threw that coin, he would throw a 1!
Wang Guangning’s eyes burned furiously with anger and he glared at Zhang Lingyi’s nose. One word at a time, he said, “I. Am. Ticklish!”
“Pfft——” This time it was Zhang Lingyi who was unable to restrain himself as he looked towards the sky and laughed crazily. “Wow…ha ha ha ha ha…”
Wang Guangning’s ears flushed. With no other alternative, he ultimately hmphed in fury before flinging back his head and leaving.
Zhang Lingyi quickly chased after him as he tried to stop his laughter, “Alright, shou shou. Since it’s like this, I’ll give you my ‘thin waist’ to hug!”
Wang Guangning took a glimpse of his ‘thin waist’ and decided that later, he must take the chance to strangle Zhang Lingyi’s waist!
The two people followed the public transport line and headed back. They hadn’t walked far when Zhang Lingyi was unable to endure and said, “Shou shou, let’s go and ride a bicycle!” The place they had just passed was a little shop which rented out bicycles.
There were many bicycle rental points along this bus route between F University and the other schools. It basically met all the needs of people from other areas who came to travel here. Furthermore, many of the rental shops had branches at other schools. In other words, the bicycle one rented at the shop in this school would still be fine to ride at another school if it was the same boss, which made it very convenient.
Wang Guangning silently gazed at the road extended before them and calculated the distance in his heart. Finally, he said impatiently, “Fine.”
Zhang Lingyi cheered loudly and ran into the rental shop next to them, beginning to choose a bicycle.
With black lines covering his forehead, Wang Guangning followed.
“Shou shou, what about this one?” Zhang Lingyi pointed at one of the bicycles with an eager expression.
Wang Guangning followed the path of his arm, then his entire face momentarily tuned black, “This bicycle doesn’t have a backseat, alright?” Were they supposed to have one person stand on the wheels like those in circus acts?
Revealing a lascivious expression, Zhang Lingyi laughed in a hehe manner and said, “Don’t you see the horizontal bar at the front?”
What happened to being elegant and graceful, Zhang Lingyi?
