COR Chapter 43

-+=

Ah! It’s a hickey!

“Mr. Cai.” Bian Shengjian frowned, “Don’t persuade me, I won’t go.”

“How can you do that? You are such a talented person, it would be a pity if you won’t represent our class in this year’s Theatrical Evening…” Old Tan muttered with an earnest look. ” Shengjian, can you think about it again?”

“……Did my dad say something to you again?” Bian Shengjian was a little speechless.

“That’s right!” Old Tan slapped his thigh with a smile on his face. “He said that you have been particularly talented in music since you were a child. Have you really organized a band before…?”

“Damn.” Bian Shengjian cursed in a low voice, barely maintaining a smile on the corner of his mouth. “Haha, it’s all just for fun.”

“It’s okay, don’t rush to answer me now.” Old Tan smiled and waved his hands, “Go back to class first, I’ll wait for your good news.”

“Okay.” Bian Shengjian immediately stood up, hesitated for a while, and then said: “Actually, Mr. Cai, you really don’t have to wait and hope. I really don’t want to participate.”

“Go back first, and think about it carefully.” Old Tan just waved his hand again.

Bian Shengjian walked out of the office door helplessly, and as expected, the moment he raised his head, he saw the person waiting on the railing next to the office. When he saw him coming out, he immediately frowned. “How is it, what did Old Tan say to you?”

“Nothing, it’s just about the Theatrical Evening.” Bian Shengjian clicked his tongue.

“Don’t you want to go?” Lu Shen asked.

“It’s not that I don’t want to at all, it’s  just…” Bian Shengjian said and waved his hand in the air, “I just find it troublesome, you know?”

“Why?” The expression on Lu Shen’s face was a little confused.

“Because there will be a lot of girls……Sigh. Anyway, every time, this kind of activity would cause a high-incidence period of puppy love.” Bian Shengjian said, “It was like that before in my previous school, and it’s so troublesome.”

“I get it,” Lu Shen smiled meaningfully, “But that time at the bar, I think you liked the stage quite a bit?”

“I really like it.” Bian Shengjian glanced at him, askance. “Why? Do you want to see me sing that much?”

“Yeah,” Lu Shen nodded, “I think you are very handsome when you sing.”

“Thank you, but I’m still handsome even when I’m not singing.” Bian Shengjian replied. 

“Young Bian,” Lu Shen hooked his arm on his shoulder, and his tone suddenly became a little serious. “Do whatever it is that you want to do, I support you.”

Bian Shengjian didn’t speak, but his heart rate actually accelerated for a moment.

“..Tsk, I know.”

“Brother Jian!” Zhou Li waved at him, “Are you going to practice this afternoon?”

“Tomorrow is the game, just maintain this state.” Bian Shengjian said, “I won’t play today, be careful of injuries.”

“Okay, I’ll listen to you.” Zhou Li smiled happily, “Then we’ll follow the plan we made earlier for tomorrow.”

“En, I’ll play forward,” Bian Shengjian said, pointing to Lu Shen: “He, Lu Shen, will be a guard. You can play the center and take charge of the defense.”

“No problem.” Zhou Li nodded, still a little nervous. “Brother Jian, how do you feel about our cooperation these days? Will it drag you down?”

“Not likely.” Bian Shengjian sighed softly. “I said to be more confident, this game doesn’t depend entirely on me.”

“Then, that’s good.” Zhou Li rubbed his nose in embarrassment. “It’s because our class has too few people, and the rest of the boys are either short or tall, but their level is not too bad……”

“En, let’s just make do with it.” Bian Shengjian responded.

But to be honest, the level of basketball played by the boys in Class 4 was really just passable, which was far from the level he encountered in a school basketball team back then. Basically, no one except Lu Shen could keep up with his rhythm. It took this group of people to practice hard in the gymnasium for a week before barely reaching the level he expected.

Bringing a group of chickens with you would be very hard.

Bian Shengjian couldn’t help but sighed again. “It’s okay, just take it easy and play.”

“That’s right, I don’t know which class will be against us in this afternoon’s draw.” Zhou Li clicked his tongue twice, “I hope we’ll meet those grandchildren earlier.”

Bian Shengjian didn’t say a word. When he was practicing in the gymnasium before, he would occasionally see those people from Class 6 coming to practice as well. To be honest, apart from their bad mouth, those people were really not bad and that Pan Zhiwei, he was as fierce as a bear when he dribbled the ball on the court. It made Zhou Li sweat, even just by watching it.

If you want to defend this kind of ball, it won’t be easy.

“It’s okay, it will be sooner or later.” Bian Shengjian patted him on the shoulder.

“The last time we went to practice, I saw those guys giving you the middle finger,” Zhou Li said angrily, “Fuck, if we really match up with them, whoever of us wins or loses, we have to find those grandsons at the end of the game and beat them up hard.”

“It depends on the situation, as long as they don’t make a foul.” Bian Shengjian narrowed his eyes, and Jiang Wei’s somewhat cunning face flashed through his mind. It was estimated that this person was equivalent to a military strategist in their team, and was responsible for giving advice to things, such as how to prevent the referee from noticing the foul etc. Zhou Li said that it was probably this person who planned the hit with the ball last year, and Pan Zhiwei was only responsible for the implementation.

“In a word, pay more attention,” Bian Shengjian urged, “Be careful not to get hurt, our class doesn’t have any extra substitutes.”

“I know, I will definitely keep an eye on them.” Zhou Li looked eager to punch the air: “If they dare to play dirty tricks, castrate them one by one. “

“That’s so dirty,” said Bian Shengjian, “at least, it should be castrated and then be castrated again.”

Zhou Li was so happy that he raised his hand and gave him a thumbs up. “Good idea.”

The results of the draw in the afternoon came out soon, and when the class monitor returned to the class with the labeled paper, Zhou Li almost couldn’t hold back and jumped up from his chair. “Hey! Which class will we fight with tomorrow?”

“Class 3.” The class monitor shook the note in his hand from a distance.

“Damn–” Zhou Li sat back in his seat in disappointment.

“It’s okay, I told you, sooner or later.” Bian Shengjian said, “How is the level of Class 3?”

“Not that I’m bragging,” Zhou Li immediately regained his spirits, “but Brother Jian, let me tell you, if we match up with Class 3 tomorrow, we will definitely win.”

“Oh? So sure?” Bian Shengjian looked at him with raised eyebrows.

“Because the boys in their class are more…….hmm, feminine?” Zhou Li couldn’t help laughing after tilting his head to think for a while. “Ai, you’ll know what I mean when the time comes.”

“Feminine? You mean feminine boys?” Bian Shengjian looked at him. “The whole literature and art…. are all the boys in their class feminine? Isn’t that a gay fun class?”

“I don’t know, I’ve only heard it all.” Zhou Li shrugged, “But their class’s scores in liberal arts are indeed the best, so I think it doesn’t matter if you’re a gay or not?”

“Let’s just see tomorrow,” Bian Shengjian said, “It’s better to win the first game, it will give you guys a boost of morale.”

****

But on the next day, Bian Shengjian himself was really shocked by the legendary Class 3.

Because really, as Zhou Li said, the boys in this class were very… awesome.

“Damn.” Bian Shengjian whispered in shock, “Is there really no fucking one who knows how to play in their team?”

“Do you feel that you can’t bear to win?” Zhou Li couldn’t help but laugh.

“Indeed.” Bian Shengjian twitched the corners of his mouth.

He was already this old, yet it’s true that he had never encountered a situation where the entire boys in a class couldn’t play basketball……..Or maybe there was before, but later transferred away? 

Bian Shengjian looked at this group of “Pseudo-Schoolmasters” who were all wearing glasses and felt that they had been obsessed with books for a long time, as they struggled to run on the court. It was really difficult for them to be forced to participate in the game.

“Excuse me.”

When Bian Shengjian dribbled the ball past a boy from Class 3 who was defending and fiddling around, his arm accidentally bumped into his chest. The boy on the opposite side immediately apologized after a pause, and his voice sounded very weak.

Hearing this, Bian Shengjian almost got goosebumps.

But he didn’t have much time to think about it. Standing on the three-point line, he raised his hand and threw the ball. The center forward of the Class 3 didn’t even bother to guard him, and just stood on the sidelines and watched as the ball was being stably shot into the basket.

This game is just so fucking amazing.

Bian Shengjian felt a little bored during the half-time break. It was really meaningless to play a game with an opponent having the attitude of giving up completely. Instead, he just ran around the whole court, until his forehead sweated.

“Brother Jian, isn’t it enjoyable being at an overwhelming advantage?” Zhou Li smiled and took a sip of water.

“Enjoy my ass, it’s boring.” Bian Shengjian clicked his tongue, grabbed the hem of his jersey uniform and wiped it on his face, which happened to reveal his abdomen with strong muscles.

“Ah!!” A girl screamed from somewhere in the crowd.

“Damn.” Bian Shengjian was so frightened that he immediately put down his clothes. “That voice was sharp.”

“Brother Jian, you have a good figure.” Zhou Li smiled and patted his abdomen, “Teach me how to get one when you have time?”

“Don’t fumble it.” Bian Shengjian glanced at him sideways, raised his head and took a sip of water. Because he was in a hurry, the water flowed directly into his neck along the corner of his mouth, and then flowed down to his collarbone to his stomach.

“Hey, Brother Jian, what’s wrong with your collarbone? Did you get bitten by a mosquito?” Zhou Li suddenly shouted as if he had discovered a new world, “Let me see…”

Bian Shengjian realized what he was referring to in less than a tenth of a second. He almost vomited the water he just drank, and quickly jumped back in two steps. “Fuck! Stay away from me!”

“Why do I think it looks like…” Zhou Li was still in deep thought, and then finally showed an expression of enlightenment after a long time. “I see! That couldn’t be…”

“No.” Someone interrupted him suddenly, “It’s just a mosquito bite.”

Zhou Li turned his head to look at Lu Shen, with a somewhat still emotional face. “Ah? How do you know?”

“Because I killed that mosquito for him,” Lu Shen said, while simultaneously beckoning to Bian Shengjian, “Come here, I brought you a towel.”

“You helped him kill it? That mosquito…” Zhou Li was still standing there thinking, Bian Shengjian suddenly took a few steps forward. He snatched the towel from Lu Shen’s hand, lowered his voice and whispered in his ear, “Lu Shen, did you do it on purpose?”

“I’m sorry, I didn’t know that the teeth marks haven’t disappeared yet after so many days.” Lu Shen rubbed his ears a few times and whispered, “But mine have already disappeared.”

“Scram!” Bian Shengjian took the towel and wiped his neck vigorously a few times, “You just wait for me.”

“Then why don’t I let you bite me back again,” Lu Shen said with a smile, “Calf, thigh or arm is fine, and the neck too…”

“Go away!” Bian Shengjian smack him with the towel, “Fuck,  I would have beat you to death if there weren’t any match tomorrow.”

The game with the Class 3 was over as if it was a joke, and there was basically no suspense about the outcome. But to Bian Shengjian’s surprise, after the match was over, the weak boy who apologized to him just now came to him. When he came over, he asked him shyly if he could add him on WeChat.

WeChat…..add my ass!

Bian Shengjian forced himself to raise a polite smile, but still rejected the boy mercilessly, watched him turn and leave with tears in his eyes, and then couldn’t help but let out a long sigh afterwards.

What’s with this trouble?

“What, he’s taken a fancy to you?” Lu Shen handed him a bottle of energy drink, and asked him with a monotonous voice.

“Maybe.” Bian Shengjian unscrewed the cap a little depressed and took a sip, “But I refused.”

“Really.” Lu Shen glanced at him, his tone sounding obviously more relaxed than before. “That’s good…By the way, the class that we’ll be playing against in the next game is out.”

“Who?” Bian Shengjian finally regained some energy and looked at him with raised eyebrows.

“Class 6.” Lu Shen said.
