COR Chapter 25



“…Sorry.” Lu Shen said in a low voice.

Bian Shengjian didn’t say a word, glanced at the chaotic crowd, and worried quickly took over again: “Fuck, that person just now won’t die, right?”

“It’s okay, he won’t die.” When Lu Shen remembered that person, there was a hint of impatience in his voice.

“Third!” Two people suddenly squeezed out of the crowd. It was Tan Ming and Li Fei who were both in panic.

“Scared me to death… Are you alright!”

“I’m alright.” Bian Shengjian looked down, only to find a bright red mark on the back of his hand, probably scratched by the fragments of the lamp.

“I just thought there was an explosion inside!” 

Tan Ming wiped the sweat from his forehead and grabbed Bian Shengjian’s hand: “Fuck, how did you got hurt?”

“When the bunch of people that came around flee everywhere, scared by the accident.”

Li Fei raised his eyebrows, “That person didn’t come to harass you just now, did he?”

“He’s the one lying inside,” Bian Shengjian wiped his forehead, and for a while he didn’t know how to organize his words. “Just…the lighting blew up when he spoke.”

“Something awesome like that happened?” Tan Ming was a little shocked, “Damn, do you have superpowers?!”

“No,” Bian Shengjian sighed, “Forget it, let’s go, the police are expected to come in a while.”

“The incident won’t be blamed on you, right?”

Li Fei was a little worried.

“No, the surveillance camera should have clearly captured that the lamp blew up by itself.” Bian Shengjian couldn’t help but glance at Lu Shen as he spoke, who was walking a few steps behind them, and in his mind came the image of Qiu Jiu crouching on the ground in pain.

Although Lu Shen was just a few steps further from him at the time, however…

Feeling his gaze, Lu Shen raised his head and said, “What?”

“Nothing.” Bian Shengjian coughed then turned his head.

But he felt that the strangeness of Qiu Ji had something to do with Lu Shen. Is this some kind of weird witchcraft?

While thinking, the taxi Tan Ming called had already arrived and the driver honked twice to tell them to get inside the car.

“Let’s go.” Li Fie urged. “I saw a barbecue stall right next to the hotel. We’ll just buy a few sticks and drinks there later.”

“Okay.” Bian Shengjian nodded, then he turned around, looking hesitant and said, “What are you going to do? Do you still want to follow us?”

“I’ll go home and clean up.” Lu Shen answered then motioned for Shenjian to stretch forward his hand.

Bian Shenjian reached out his open palm inexplicably. Tan Ming, who had already opened the car door and climbed up, called him over. 

“Third, what are you still doing?”

“Go.” Lu Shen then gently pushed him as he whispered softly in his ear, “Sorry.”

Bian Shenjian got in and closed the car door. He turned his head and looked at Lu Shen still standing outside right across from him through the window, waving at him.

He could only wave his hand back. After a moment, he looked down at the thing lying in his hand. It was actually a cartoon band-aid with cute patterns. 

“Third Brother.” Li Fei said in a low voice, “What happened to you and that man just now?”

Bian Shengjian hesitated for a moment and then tore the bandage open and stuck it on the back of his hand. “Nothing major.”

“Are you lying?” Li Fei snorted, “Did he bother you?”

“Yes.” Bian Shengjian sighed. Although Qiu Jiu’s behavior and words just now were very abnormal, when he recalled that, all he could think of was the terrible sound of the explosion and fragments hitting him. He couldn’t help but hug his arms and said, “I almost beat him.”

“It’s no fun meeting people like him,” Li Fei frowned. “I’m also confused.”

“But I regretted what happened tonight.” Bian Shengjian changed the topic, “When you left the stage, did many girls come to ask you for WeChat?”

“Not true,” Tan Ming picked his eyebrows. “But there are quite a few! And someone even came to ask me for your WeChat.”

“Did you give it to them?” Bian Shengjian asked immediately.

“Of course I didn’t.” Tan Ming seemed to have remembered something and couldn’t help laughing. “I said you like men yet they still don’t believe me. They wouldn’t stop pestering me… “

“Oh yeah!” Li Fei also remembered something, gritted his teeth and tried to hold back his smile. “Those stubborn people! If I hadn’t come up with a good idea in time, they would have chased you out of the store!”

“What good idea?” Bian Shengjian suddenly had an ominous premonition.

“I told them, you can’t get it up.” Li Fei tried his best to hold back a smile.

Bian Shengjian: “…….”

The driver was listening to their conversation and couldn’t help laughing.

“Hey, you guys, you are still young, men can’t just say no!”

“Fuck.” Bian Shengjian took a deep breath, “Li Fei, I’ll tear you apart as soon as we get off the fucking car!”

“Don’t! Our friendship!”

Li Fei wiped the tears from the corner of his eyes, “It’s alright, they don’t know you anyway, Ah Ming, don’t you think so?”

Tan Ming laughed so hard that he couldn’t breathe. He held the car door before he caught Bian Shengjian’s shoulder. “Don’t be angry, don’t be angry, we still love you…”

“Go eat shit.” Bian Shengjian said with clenched teeth.

After buying barbecue and drinks, the three sat around a table. Tan Ming nibbled on a bunch of chicken wings and asked, “Third brother, what’s the plan for tomorrow?”

“I don’t know, just hang out.” Bian Shengjian took a mouthful of crispy five-petaled flowers, but it was a little tasteless.

“That’s so boring, why don’t we go to your school? We haven’t seen it yet.” Li Fei said.

“Not bad.” Bian Shengjian thought for a while and sighed, “We could also visit the crematorium here along the way.”

“I almost forgot if you didn’t mention it,” Tan Ming laughed, “your school is really amazing.”

“Really amazing,” Shenjian tutted. “There are a lot of beautiful flowers there.”

After eating the barbecue, the three of them drank again until the early morning. In the end, Shengjian was still the most sober one. He dragged the two dead pigs to bed before he went into the bathroom. After washing casually, he went to sleep. When he was about to lose consciousness, he suddenly heard his phone ring.

“Fuck…. Who is it?” Bian Shengjian struggled for a while, but still took the cell phone by the bedside, and glanced sleepily. It was a message from Lu Shen.

–Are you asleep?

Not asleep, still awake.

Bian Shengtong tapped the screen a few times with his fingers before hesitatingly replied. 

–About to go to sleep.

–Did it frighten you today?

Bian Shengjian was a little dizzy, and it took a long time to recognize the words on the screen, and he was a little stunned for a while. 

He wasn’t just frightened, he was horrified, okay?

He stared at the screen for a long time, until a caller ID popped in the screen. He immediately raised his head, glanced at the two sleeping dead people next to him, and hesitantly pressed the answer button, suppressing his voice like a thief.

” … Are you sick? Why are you calling in the middle of the night?”

“I can’t sleep.” Lu Shen said, “How about you?”

“I’m sleepy.” Bian Shengjian rubbed his eyes and yawned again. “I’m going to take these two to visit the school tomorrow.”

“Do you want me to lead the way?” Lu Shen asked.

“No need.” Bian Shengjian paused for a while then still asked the question that haunted him all night. “Lu Shen, what happened to that person last night?”

“I taught him a lesson.” Lu Shen said.

“How did you… teach him a lesson.” Bian Shengjian said with difficulty, “I think he seemed a little out of breath that time.”

“Who asked him to harass you,” Lu Shen avoided his topic, and his tone became a little low. “Doing that just because he felt so. Shameless.” 

“Really shameless. That idiot even said he wanted to fuck me hard.” Because Shengjian was in a daze for a moment and he said those words without thinking. 

There was no sound from the other side for a moment.

“…Forget it, go to bed early.” Bian Shengjian felt half awake after saying that, and cleared his throat awkwardly: “Uh, pretend I didn’t say that, good night.”

“Third brother,” Lu Shen’s voice was a little hoarse: “You were… pretty handsome tonight.”

“Ah.” Bian Shengjian pinched the bridge of his nose, “Thank you, I’ve always been handsome.”

After saying this, the two fell silent, and the atmosphere became a little awkward for a while.

“Okay, go to sleep now.” Bian Shengjian said after holding back for a long time.

“Well, good night.” Lu Shen replied.


Bian Shengjian fell onto the bed with his eyes closed. He thought that he would lose sleep after the chaos and fright tonight, but he was just actually overthinking it. He not only fell asleep, but also had a dream, and his dream was full of Lu Shen’s face.

Lu Shen playing with his mobile phone on the table, Lu Shen standing in front of him, smiling Lu Shen, and a Lu Shen that was holding a spell in his hand. As the spell suddenly burned, through the flames he saw Lu Shen say to Qiu Jiu, “I want you to die.”

As soon as the scene changed, Qiu Jiu fell to the ground and struggled in pain, and Lu Shen was looking at him coldly.

“Ah!” he gave out a cry of anxiety.

Lu Shen turned his head and put on another expression. “Third brother.”

Are you afraid of me? 

Bian Shengjian suddenly opened his eyes, the sky was already bright, and the sound of washing up was coming from the bathroom. Li Fei just wiped the water on his face and walked out, and then met Bian Shengjian’s slightly surprised face.

 “Did you have a nightmare?”

“No.” Bian Shengjian rubbed his face.

“It’s noon now, so let’s have something to eat? I’ll order takeout.”

Li Fei said and took out his mobile phone.

“Hmm.” He replied absentmindedly.

“What’s wrong, third brother, your face is flushed?” Tan Ming glanced at the expression on his face in surprise. “Fuck, it’s not because of that person last night…..”

“Scram!” Bian Shengjian grabbed a pillow and smacked him with it, and jumped out of bed with a scowl. “Clean up. I’ll take you to that ghost school.”

In fact, the No. 4 Middle School in the daytime looks quite normal. Apart from the fact that the campus was too big and desolate, there was nothing wrong with it. Bian Shengjian just took them around and listened to the exclamations of both Li Fei and Tan Ming.

“Damn, your school is too big, Third brother! It’s awesome!”

“Well, it’s only big.” Bian Shengjian sighed, “but the teaching environment is terrible.”

“It’s okay, you’re able to mingle with anyone anywhere anyway.” Tan Ming grinned and put his arm around his shoulder. “Anyhow, you’re going abroad, right? Don’t forget us then.”

“Why do you mention this,” Li Fei immediately slapped him on the back. “Shut up.”

“Okay, in short, stay rich and noble, and don’t ever forget us!” Tan Ming touched his nose and said with a smile.

“I will remember you.” Bian Shengjian said helplessly.

Although the two people were so noisy that Bian Shengjian’s eardrums were about to explode, the familiar atmosphere made him very relaxed. After all, after coming to the No. 4 Middle School, it was difficult to find someone to chat aimlessly. Therefore, they unconsciously talked more these days, until the day they woke up on the day of separation.

Happy times always pass quickly.

Bian Shengjian received a call from Lu Shen in the morning when he was taking the two to the train station.

Bian Shengjian stared at the screen for a long time and didn’t press the answer button. He hadn’t contacted Lu Shen in the past few days, and he deliberately pretended not to see the messages he sent. One was because he felt awkward thinking about that night, and the other was that even though Bian Shengjian thought about it for three days, he still didn’t figure out what kind of feelings he had for Lu Shen now.

Is it like, hate, or fear?

He does not know.

“What’s the matter?” Bian Shengjian hesitated for a long time but still picked up the phone.

“Are you going to take your two friends to the station?” Lu Shen’s voice was smooth, “I bought some souvenirs, should I bring it to them?”

“What… no need!” Bian Shengjian was stunned and quickly refused, “Don’t bother too much.”

“I already bought everything. It’s no trouble.” Lu Shen said, “What time is their train? I’ll be there by then.”

“Alright,” words that Bian Shengjian was about to say were stuck in his throat , “four o’clock in the afternoon…….I’ll wait for you at the gate.”

“Good.” Lu Shen then hung up the phone.

“Shit.” When Tan Ming opened the bag and looked at it. He was stunned. He was very moved and went on to hug Shengjian’s neck. “ Third brother, you don’t have to buy us so much food.”

“I didn’t buy them.” Bian Shengjian pointed to Lu Shen who was standing beside him and said, “Thank him.”

Tan Ming was stunned and clasped his fist to Lu Shen, “Thanks, brother.”

“You’re welcome.” Lu Shen smiled.

“Third Brother.”

Before entering the station, Li Fei suddenly held Bian Shengjian’s arm and quickly pulled him aside.” Let me tell you something. “

“What?” Bian Shengjian’s voice dropped when she saw him acting like a thief.

“What’s the matter? “

“About your friend,” Li Fei looks at Lu Shen who is talking to Tan Ming. “… Him.”

“What’s wrong?” Bian Shengjian frowned.

“Well, I didn’t want to say it,” Li Fei hesitated for a moment and said, “But I always feel that… that person gives me a bad feeling.”

“What?” Bian Shengjian’s heart jumped violently.

 “I haven’t noticed that your friend’s sense of existence is really low.” Li Fei said, “But I don’t know why. The first time I saw him today, I felt that he was a bit dangerous.”

Bian Shengjian only looked at him and said nothing.

“Forget it. I really don’t think it’s appropriate. If you don’t like it, don’t take it to heart.” Li Fei said, “In a word, you’d better pay attention to yourself.”

“Hmm.” Bian Shengjian answered half-heartedly.

“Well, take care of yourself, and remember to tell us if something happens, although we can’t help you much.” Li Fei smiled, “Farewell hug?”

“Shit, let me too!” Tan Ming opened his arms and got them together. “We’ll wait for you to come back for the Spring Festival!” 

“Who are you hugging to death?” Both hugged Bian Shengjian tightly, but he felt a little depressed when he saw them waving their hands and walked into the entrance of the station.

“Feeling reluctant?” Lu Shen stood beside him and asked.

“A little.” Bian Shengjian gazed as the two figures disappeared around a corner, before he turned his head and looked at him a little complicated. “Lu Shen.”

“Huh?” Lu Shen looked at him as well.

“..Forget it.” Bian Shengjian turned back his head. “Nothing, let’s go back.”

Having said that, Lu Shen still clearly saw the subtle expression on Bian Shengjian’s face.

Lu Shen didn’t speak, but when he lowered his head, his fingernails made a deep indent on the palm of his hand.
