The BL drama “Addicted” was adapted from this novel.
As Gu Hai sent Bai Luo Yin home, Bai Han Qi was talking to people, as he saw Gu Hai and Bai Luo Yin came back, he folded his stool and smiled.
“Da Hai, why don’t you have your meal here?”
Bai Luo Yin stared at Bai Han Qi, hinting him not to. Gu Hai doesn’t understand what are courtesies, he would just accept the invitation and eat here.
“Sure! Since Uncle have already invited me, I will feel impolite to leave.”
That is really the case.
Bai Luo Yin scrunched his eyebrows together, looking at Bai Han Qi as though looking at an enemy.
“Your aunt is cooking today, he would not be fed bad food.”
“Who allowed aunt to make food for him, you make the meal!”
As Gu Hai walked into the kitchen, Aunt Zhou was rolling the noodles, big and fat rolled noodles moved back and forth, after placing it down neatly, it was piled into layers, dang dang dang… Concentrated yet balanced cuts, in a matter of seconds, the noodles were ready to be cooked. Strands of noodles that had the same width and length, it was as though it was done by a machine.
“Aunt, you are really good with the knife, how long have you trained?”
Aunt smiled warmly and said, “You need to train for this? After cooking meals for over 20 years, everyone will be able to cut like this.”
“Do you need any help?”
“No, go and do your homework, I’ll be done soon.”
Gu Hai saw that there was two cucumbers on the cutting board, he took a bite and it was crunchy. He couldn’t help it but praised it.
“Aunt, where did you buy these cucumbers? It tastes really good.”
“I planted them, let me harvest some for you, so you can bring some back for your parents. These cucumbers are not genetically modified nor does it have pesticides, it is safe to eat.”
“Sure, I’ll go to your house and harvest some later.”
While talking, Aunt has already finished cutting the cucumber, strands of cucumbers cut really straight as it lied on a plate; on its side laid freshly fried diced meat and sauce, the sauce was thick and the diced meat was tender; there was also a wide variety of vegetables at the side, there was soy beans, toon, radish and more, and the colours looked vibrant.
“Aunt, do you need a taste test?”
“Will you ever be done?”
Just before Gu Hai’s chopsticks could reach the noodles, he heard an angry shout, “Go and do you work! Are you trying to eat for free?”
Aunt Zhou happily looked at the back of Gu Hai and Bai Luo Yin, thinking to herself, these two kids make people want to pamper them so much.
While eating, Gu Hai drank a bottle of beer. As he ate, he was chatting with Grandma Bai happily, this time Grandma Bai has found a friend. After the meal, Grandma Bai held on to Gu Hai, not letting him leave. She pointed to the patch of grass in the yard excitedly, and said, “These crops were given by Comrade Liu Shao Qi.”
Gu Hai, “…”
Bai Luo Yin held on to Grandma Bai’s hand and said persuasively, “Grandma, its time to wash your feet. Come, let’s go into the house!”
As Bai Luo Yin was taking out the cloth to wash Grandma Bai’s feet, Gu Hai stopped him.
“I think your grandma doesn’t want me to leave.”
Bai Luo Yin patted Gu Hai’s shoulder fiercely.
“You are thinking too much!”
After walking around the yard for another two rounds, Gu Hai came to the entrance of Grandma Bai’s room. Quietly, he looked at the room that was lit by dim yellow lights. These light bulbs must have been here for a long time, even the light from a phone is brighter. But as Gu Hai looked at the dim light, and the person under the light, he had a warm feeling in his heart. This is what a home should be, a night at home should not be as bright as a white painting, it should be faintly lit, with the shadows of loved ones stretched out on the walls.
Grandpa Bai drank a cup of white wine and fell asleep, as snoring was heard by Gu Hai. Grandma Bai, as usual, was nagging, in front of her sat her precious grandson, cleaning her feet patiently.
Sometimes, Gu Hai felt that Bai Luo Yin is really cold, but sometimes he felt that Bai Luo Yin is really friendly.
Bai Luo Yin treated people differently at different times, when he is cold, you would feel that the sun above him is out of place, but when he is friendly, no matter how many layers of snow there are in your heart, he is able to melt them. Such a person, grabbing on to your feelings sometimes, as you more forward, he moves backwards, but when you move backwards, he will turn and look at you, hooking your soul as if it was unbearable to leave. Although he is the same gender as you and you may just be friends, your life will not be complete without him.
Other than drugs, Gu Hai couldn’t find another thing to describe Bai Luo Yin.
As Bai Luo Yin left his grandma’s room, the surroundings was already quiet, it was only left with the rare dog barks and Aunt Zhou has already left. The yard looked as though it was taken care of really well. A plastic cloth covered the shower as Bai Han Qi was showering his tired body. Meanwhile, Bai Luo Yin walked towards his room.
When Bai Luo Yin entered the room, the lights was already on as he stood rooted to the ground.
Gu Hai had already taken off his shoes and was lying on Bai Luo Yin’s bed, with his head on Bai Luo Yin’s pillow and covered in Bai Luo Yin’s blanket as well. He was lying comfortable, with no sense of awkwardness.
Bai Luo Yin kicked Gu Hai.
Gu Hai sounded confused, but he had a pair of bright eyes.
“I am drunk!”
Bai Luo Yin had a glum face as he said, “Don’t give such excuses! It was only a bottle of beer, who are you trying to trick? Get up!”
“I can’t get up!”
“Don’t go overboard!”
Bai Luo Yin used all his strength to pull Gu Hai out of the bed, but instead got pulled onto the bed by Gu Hai. Although the bed was creaking, Gu Hai still used his hands to hoop around Bai Luo Yin’s shoulders, and used his legs to push down Bai Luo Yin, as if he was a drunk snake, crawling about on Bai Luo Yin’s body, making people who saw that shiver, but didn’t dare to move it.
Bai Luo Yin’s body started feeling stiff.
Gu Hai saw the hesitation in Bai Luo Yin as he knocked his head on Bai Luo Yin’s shoulder, he grit his teeth together.
“I might be… really drunk.”
