As Lin Chen kissed Xing Conglian hard, his fingers dug deeper into Xing Conglian’s hair, pressing his head down. It was pure emotional venting. At this moment, he didn’t need to care about Xing Conglian’s feelings or the ethics and morality of the world. He just wanted to kiss the person he had liked for a long time. He really couldn’t help it, because only Xing Conglian’s lips and the breath he sprayed onto his face could make him feel that there was warmth in this world. It felt as if he had walked on an ice field for a thousand years, and couldn’t help but pounce on the creature that made him feel warm, absorbing its heat.
He didn’t dare to open his eyes to observe Xing Conglian’s expression, but he didn’t hesitate to pry open Xing Conglian’s lips and teeth. The breath they exchanged was scorching; it was so hot that it could burn all his shackles; it was so hot that it could make him gradually float from the cold, deep sea.
The singing gradually became louder and filled his ears.
The sudden high notes seemed to heat up with the kiss. The pain that had penetrated deep into his bones was gradually broken by the scorching tingling. He kissed deeper and deeper, trying to draw the power that could keep him alive from Xing Conglian’s body. Their lips and teeth were glued to each other and couldn’t be separated. He raised his other hand and forcefully hooked Xing Conglian’s neck, holding him tightly.
The slow and lengthy kiss shattered the ice, blood, illusion, and pain on his body. The scalding temperature that was gradually rising seemed to evaporate all the tears. He wished that time would pass more slowly. It would be great if he could stay in this moment forever.
Lin Chen continued kissing Xing Conglian. He seemed to see a vision of Xing Conglian standing at the door frame the first time they met, smiling at him with bad intentions.
He seemed to have returned to that moment. He took the other party’s hand and gave him a light peck on Xing Conglian’s beautiful eyelashes at that time.
At that moment, he felt Xing Conglian move. Xing Conglian’s palm gently touched his cheek. Lin Chen could feel the rough calluses and hot temperature from his hands. Xing Conglian was wiping away the tears that were falling down his cheeks.
It was a gentle gesture, but Lin Chen really understood the meaning of it.
That’s enough. You can stop.
Lin Chen lowered his head and separated his lips from the other. He pushed Xing Conglian away, took a half step back, and gasped gently.
Only the sound of the two of them panting at different frequencies remained in the air.
At the moment he kissed Xing Conglian just now, he clearly saw the shocked look on the other party’s eyes, like an emerald that was green to the extreme when it shattered, but now, he could no longer find that look on Xing Conglian’s face.
Now, Xing Conglian had a calm expression, and he looked at him with deep and distant eyes, remaining silent.
The underground space was dark and quiet. The singing in his ears gradually stopped, and the previous hallucinations disappeared. Lin Chen’s heart started to become clearer, and because of the clarity, he could already foresee what would happen in the future. The relationship between him and Xing Conglian would change. With Xing Conglian’s personality, he wouldn’t pretend to be blind and deaf and whitewash this incident. Either he or Xing Conglian would leave. They would soon part ways, with no further communication.
But it was too good. Xing Conglian was just too good, which made Lin Chen reluctant.
Lin Chen raised his head, straightened his back, and said solemnly, “I’m sorry. It was a unique opportunity in my life just now, so please consider me. I’m a good candidate.”
After saying this, Lin Chen took another half step back, bowed his head sincerely, then turned and left.
Wang Chao was sitting in the police car.
The surrounding singing had stopped. For some reason, the sky had darkened inexplicably, and there were thick clouds covering the sun.
The fire trucks, police cars, and ambulances were pouring into the square one after another, while many cars were driving away from the fire. Those vehicles made beeping noises that resounded in the sky, causing his scalp to go numb as he sat in the car. There were water stains everywhere on the ground as the water kept flowing.
Wang Chao changed the direction of his cocked legs, but he still didn’t feel comfortable enough. He looked at the car’s air conditioning. It clearly showed that it was working, but the inexplicable suffocation was truly unpleasant.
He put down his laptop, leaned against the car window, propped his head with his hands, and tried to adjust to a more comfortable sitting position, but he still felt uncomfortable.
He inadvertently glanced away while adjusting his position. Through the dense crowd, he saw a figure coming from the other side of the square.
The man was wearing ordinary army green plastic rubber boots. His lower body wore the same style army green trousers and were pulled up high. There was a large area of dry mud at his ankle. Wang Chao’s gaze slowly moved up, seeing a blue and white striped T on the man’s body that looked to be from the 1970s, and he was carrying a red and white striped snakeskin bag. Then he finally looked at the man’s face.
He opened his mouth wide, thinking he was hallucinating.
In the next second, Wang Chao quickly closed his eyes, hoping to use the restart action to adjust his brain’s visual system. In short, anything was fine, as long as the illusion would quickly dissipate.
He counted down from three seconds, and when he opened his eyes again, that figure and that terrifying face really disappeared.
He breathed a sigh of relief, then hurriedly took out his phone and sent a text: [Fuck, A’Kang Ge, I just saw a person who looks very similar to you, and it almost scared the piss out of me. I should’ve taken a picture for you to see.]
The other quickly replied to the text message: [Really?]
[*Nodding vigorously like a pecking chicken!* If I didn’t know you were on a mission in Niger, Java, or some extraterrestrial galaxy, I would’ve thought I was in hell!]
Another short reply came back without even punctuation. But soon, another text message came: [You know where the Boss is? I can’t find him.]
[Boss—the Boss and I have just experienced a test of life and death. It was truly enduring. You really should come to the scene and see our mighty figure!]
Wang Chao was eager to finish sending this message when he realized that he hadn’t answered the question in the text. When he wanted to send a follow-up, he focused on the last few words: [I can’t find him.]
It was as if he were at the scene…
Wang Chao muttered silently. He touched the phone screen and was about to reply when another text message popped up.
It was still short: [I’m here.]
The surrounding was silent for a moment, then Wang Chao felt goosebumps all over his body.
Tap, tap, tap…
At this moment, the slight sound of the car window being tapped was heard. Wang Chao shuddered and turned around slowly like a ghost.
Sure enough, the man wearing the 1970s shirt with a snakeskin bag was standing at the window, bending slightly and looking at him with a grin, showing a row of snow-white teeth that were so bright, they glistened.
Xing Conglian stared at Lin Chen’s distant back, gradually regaining his composure from his violent heartbeat. Until Lin Chen’s figure disappeared at the end of the corridor, he was still staring in a daze.
Lin Chen had just desperately kissed him. This was obvious. And he was completely shocked, which was also obvious.
Although he wanted to think about when Lin Chen had started to develop feelings for him beyond friendship, at this moment, his mind was full of Lin Chen’s expression when he kissed him; pure, hot, desperate, scorching like fire. He could feel the pain in Lin Chen’s soul, and he could also feel the deep love Lin Chen expressed in that kiss.
That kind of love actually made his heart burn, like honey flowing from a beehive with an amber-translucent luster that was both beautiful and sweet.
He also discovered in a very short moment that being loved by others was just like that beautiful and sweet honey.
However, Lin Chen actually pushed him away…
Xing Conglian sighed, realizing that kissing just once wasn’t enough. He wanted to experience it again.
But since Lin Chen kissed him, that meant he should like him. When he confirmed this, he was surprised to find that all the methods he had learned to deal with problems were useless. To make matters worse, he found that his turbulent life was such a mess that he hadn’t had time to learn how to deal with emotional problems correctly. He really wanted to grab Lin Chen and ask him if this was an emotional defect.
However, since Lin Chen made his statement, naturally, he must also make his own. Therefore, he was thinking about whether he should go up, grab Lin Chen, and kiss him again, or whether he should carefully consider their future and various risks after being together before making a decision.
Since Lin Chen had been by his side, he should be able to figure out these contents quickly. In short, he couldn’t let Lin Chen wait too long.
With such a happy thought, he walked slowly upstairs. The crowd at the scene of the fire had been evacuated. The next step was a series of heavy follow-up work. Whether it was to assess the damage, the follow-up investigation, or even the motivation mentioned by Meijing, all of these must be investigated again.
He raised his eyes and looked around. He didn’t know where Lin Chen had gone. The weather was a bit gloomy, and the sudden dark clouds brought a lot of dampness. He took a deep breath and felt the sudden coolness in the air. The next moment, he saw Wang Chao frantically packing things in a police car, looking like he was trying to escape. He didn’t know what was going on in that kid’s head.
Xing Conglian started walking towards Wang Chao’s position.
At this moment, he heard someone calling him. The voice seemed familiar. When he looked back with difficulty, it was as if he had been struck by lightning.
Not far behind him stood a young man dragging a snakeskin bag. The man’s skin was dark, but his teeth were as white as silver.
Xing Conglian turned his body around.
The man walked towards him and made a very standard salute.
Xing Conglian was just about to say something, when he saw the other party quickly took out a box of inferior ten-yuan cigarettes from his pocket and handed one out. The swift movement seemed determined not to give him any chance to react.
“Boss, Kang An, the door knocker, was ordered to ask you for help.”
His former subordinate said so.
Xing Conglian looked at the circle of fine gold threads inlaid on the edge of the cigarette under the sun. His first reaction was to turn around and leave.
