Want to be With you Forever

“ —calm down, don’t be led away by their rhythm.” Bian Shengjian did not forget to tell Zhou Li before going to the court, “Shoot when you see the right time, don’t just think about passing it to me.”

“Come on, Brother Jian, don’t worry!” Zhou Li patted his chest confidently, “Leave it to me!”

Bian Shengjian responded, then turned to look at Lu Shen who had just changed his uniform. “Done?”

“Mn, done.” Lu Shen tugged at the hem of his clothes and looked up at him.

“Relax, it’s just a competition.” Bian Shengjian patted him on the shoulder, and from the corner of his eye, he caught sight of the corner of Lu Shen’s scar near his shoulder, and couldn’t help but pinch the corner of his collar to look inside. “Hey, your scar…doesn’t it affect you?”

Lu Shen quickly reached out and pulled back his collar. “Don’t worry, it doesn’t.”

“We’re all men, why are you being shy?” Bian Shengjian clicked his tongue. “It’s not that I want to see it, you’re being hypocritical.”

“The main reason is that there are so many people here,” Lu Shen said in a low voice, “But when we go back to the dorms, I can strip naked for you to see as much as you want.”

“Have some decency.” Bian Shengjian stretched out his hand and flicked the tip of his chin, “Play hard and don’t get distracted.”

“Okay.” Lu Shen smiled and squeezed his shoulder with a smile. “Let’s play hard.”

“Let’s play hard!” Zhou Li roared suddenly, then turned around and shouted at Shengjian: “Brother Jian, come!”

“What?” Bian Shengjian was stunned for a moment before walking up to them helplessly, reaching out his hand to join the hands with several other team members.

 “Lu Shen!”

“Coming.” Lu Shen folded his hand on top of his hand and tightened it slightly.

“Class 4, Class 4, We are Class 4, repeat, We are Class 4!” Zhou Li took the lead and shouted, “Let’s play hard!”

“What kind of slogan was that…” Bian Shengjian couldn’t help laughing. “At least it should’ve been like a dragon and a tiger going down the mountain or something?”

“Stop with the nonsense, it’s time to play, this is a battle of honor for our Class 4!” Zhou Li glared at him, “Hurry up!”

Bian Shengjian could only clasp the hands of several people and shake them down vigorously, then shouted, “Let’s play hard!”

“Hey, isn’t our morale up now?” Zhou Li shook his arms in great satisfaction, and pointed in the direction of the court with one hand, “Go, beat them!”

Although the game hadn’t started yet, Bian Shengjian still felt the pressure when he came out right after Zhou Li. He didn’t know if it was because when he first appeared in front of the whole school in the last game, it immediately attracted the attention of many opposite sexes. But before the competition even started, a bunch of girls already crowded the auditorium on both sides, and almost squeezed out the cheerleaders in their class. As Bian Shengjian appeared in a fiery red jersey, they started screaming at the top of their lungs.

 “Ahhhhhh!”

“Damn it, this again.” Zhou Li couldn’t help rubbing his ears.

 “Brother, it’s not easy to be too popular sometimes, right?”

“Shut up and focus on the game.” 

Bian Shengjian ignored those screams and flashing lights, and only hoped that they would take good photos if they wanted to, and not make ugly photos and spread them everywhere…..This had happened before, and now when he went to his previous school’s page, he would find a few black history photos.

“Yeah.” Zhou Li stopped with him, and watched those from Class 6 coming up in black uniforms, looking at them with disdain in their eyes, being displeased with those screams.

“Brother Jian, I feel like they hate you even more.” Zhou Li couldn’t help but whispered, “Fuck, these messed up things.”

“They can do as they please.” Bian Shengjian met the eyes of one of them, hooked the corner of his mouth and said, “Trash.”

“What?” Jiang Wei was stunned, as if he was a little unsure of what he saw “…Did he just swear at me?”

“He must have, idiot.” Pan Zhiwei slapped him on the head. “Don’t forget our plan later.”

“Damn, I made the plan, how could I forget it?” Jiang Wei gave him a dissatisfied look, “It’s already agreed, this time we’re only allowed to win, and not to lose.”

“Don’t worry.” Pan Zhiwei walked towards the center of the court, “I can help him take your last  name after we beat them.”

“Are you ready?” The referee held the ball and looked left and right at the two groups.

“We’re good.” Bian Shengjian nodded.

“Come.” Pan Zhiwei stared at the ball expressionlessly.

“Start!” The referee yelled and threw the ball up, and blew the whistle at the same time.

There was a sudden burst of screaming and shouting in the stadium.

Bian Shengjian did not speak, but jumped up when several people jumped to grab the ball at the same time. From the corner of his eyes, he saw that Pan Zhiwei’s arm stretched out the longest when he saw several hands.

But it’s a pity, he was still one step behind him.

Bian Shengjian reached the ball with his fingertips, and slapped it hard one second before Pan Zhiwei tried to grab it.

Zhou Li immediately caught the ball, turned around and ran towards their basket.

There was another burst of screams.

“Fuck.” Pan Zhiwei ran after him without looking back, not forgetting to give Bian Shengjian a hard look.

Bian Shengjian immediately followed suit, and when Zhou Li was surrounded by two people from Class 6, he raised his arm to catch the ball he passed to him. At this time, Pan Zhiwei also rushed in front of him, and it seemed that he was prepared to guard him.

Bian Shengjian, and after looking at Lu Shen who was a few steps away for a tenth of a second, hooked the corner of his mouth, raised his hand and threw the ball over.

Lu Shen caught the ball and made a three-step layup with almost no one blocking it.

The ball went in.

“Handsome!” Zhou Li roared.

“Are you fucking blind!”

Pan Zhiwei was very dissatisfied with Bian Shengjian and for grabbing the ball first, and pointed a finger at Lu Shen and yelled, “Such a big living person!”

“We’re sorry, Brother Pan.” Several other people in Class 6 had dissatisfaction on their faces, but they didn’t dare to show it too much. They just assigned a person to defend Lu Shen when Bian Shengjian dribbled the ball and ran up again. 

Bian Shengjian just ran to the three-point line. When Pan Zhiwei was trying to steal the ball, he jumped up, and the ball then drew an arc from his hand and hit the basket perfectly.

Three points.

“Great, Ahhhh!” The girls in the auditorium started screaming again, as if they could not wait to rush directly into the court.

 “Ah, Jian is very awesome!!!!”

“….?”

Bian Shengjian twitched the corners of his mouth.

When did this nickname come about?

“Hey, do the people in your class really don’t have his WeChat account?” One of the girls wanted to put her face in front of the Class 4 monitor. “I can buy it with money, this sister has money!”

“This…I really don’t have it.” The class monitor couldn’t help but lean back and wiped his sweat. “I’m sorry.”

“Oh.” The sister looked at him with disappointment, but quickly turned her head again. “It’s not easy meeting such a handsome guy who just suits my appetite…..Ahhhh Who! Stay away from my Jian. Don’t hit him!”

Pan Zhiwei couldn’t help but gritted his teeth, and said with a fake smile. “Oh, there are quite a lot of people who like you?”

“I’m flattered.” Bian Shengjian focused on passing the ball, and responded perfunctorily.

Pan Zhiwei was even more annoyed by his invisible and pretentious attitude, especially even after playing for several minutes, he still couldn’t touch the ball. It would really be a disgrace in his playing career—being crushed to death by a young boy who had transferred from nowhere.

“Tch.” Pan Zhiwei glared at him, and gave Jiang Wei a look when he passed by him.

“No problem.” Jiang Wei raised the corner of his mouth slightly.

At the end of the first half of the game, Bian Shengjian raised the corner of his clothes and took a drink of water, and brushed back his sweaty forehead. Because his complexion was originally fair, he appeared to be glowing at the moment.

“You’re so handsome, Third brother.” Lu Shen pressed a thick towel around his neck, “Thank you for your hard work.”

“You too.” Bian Shengjian glanced at him, raised his head and wiped his mouth after spitting some water. “Just now you cooperated well.”

“Of course, I can’t hold you back now, can I?” Lu Shen smiled and hugged him on the shoulder.

“Go to the side, it’s hot.” Bian Shengjian clicked his tongue and stared forward at the scoreboard. “

The current score displayed was 12:5, but the gap was not enough. At least, the morale of the Class 6 should be completely destroyed before the end of the first half, otherwise…

Bian Shengjian glanced calmly at Zhou Li who was bragging loudly while holding a water bottle.

He had observed before that although the overall flexibility of the people in his class was better than that of Class 6, they were definitely weak in terms of physical strength, and this weakness would surely become more obvious later as the game continued on.

Therefore, no matter what, they must make a quick decision, and must not be caught up by Class 6.

“It’s time.” Bian Shengjian wiped his sweat with a towel, and opened his palm to Zhou Li. “Let’s play hard.”

“Let’s play hard!” Zhou Li was stunned for a moment and then gave him a high five with a smile.

“I want it too.” Lu Shen immediately came over, “Let’s play hard.”

“Okay, okay.” Bian Shengjian slapped his palm unceremoniously, and after the crisp slap, Lu Shen’s palm turned red.

 “Let’s play hard, little black horse.”

“Okay.” Lu Shen smiled happily.

“Start!” The referee blew the whistle again.

At the beginning of the second half, Bian Shengjian was keenly aware that something was wrong. The one who had been diverted to defend Lu Shen was called back, and a group of people blocked Bian Shengjian like a wall. Yes, it seemed that they had made up their mind to only have one person guarding him.

No matter how skillful Bian Shengjian was, he lost the chance to escape when he was surrounded by several people, therefore he could only pass the ball with a wave of his hand.

Lu Shen was too far away from him right now, thus the ball was passed to Zhou Li.

Zhou Li was obviously stunned for two seconds after receiving the ball, and Bian Shengjian had to yell at him before he quickly took the ball and ran towards their basket.

Bian Shengjian turned around and got rid of the few people around him, and then moved towards the basket. When he saw Zhou Li running under the basket but still hesitated, he was a little suffocated.

 “Shoot! You idiot! “

Zhou Li was being blocked by someone at the moment. This person was the tallest person in Class 6. He was about 1.9 meters tall and when he opened his arms, he was almost covered by his shadow. Zhou Li and him faced each other. After staring at it for a few seconds, he still hesitated, turned around and threw the ball back towards Shengjian.

“Fuck!” 

Bian Shengjian was so depressed that he almost vomited blood. He was still some distance away from Zhou Li at this time, which was not a good time to pass the ball, but now that the ball was already flying in the air, he could only do his best to grab it

However, the ball was intercepted in mid-air.

Pan Zhiwei only sneered, took the ball and quickly moved to the opposite basket. Lu Shen rushed in front of him and tried to defend but failed. He was too fierce, and he couldn’t prevent it at all.

Pan Zhiwei ran two steps and jumped up, and made a beautiful three-points. After landing back to the ground, he raised his chin at Bian Shengjian. 

He knew the meaning in his eyes without even thinking about it.

What can you do if you are strong? When you’re still being dragged by your pig teammates?

“Zhou Li.”

When the referee blew the whistle, Bian Shengjian wiped the sweat off his face, “What did I tell you?”

“I….I’m sorry Brother Jian.” Zhou Li frowned at the moment, as if he was about to cry. “I just…….”

“If I pass this ball to Lu Shen!” Bian Shengjian couldn’t help but growled in a low voice, “He will try his best to throw the ball to the basket! And not just passing it back to me!”

“I understand,” Zhou Li bit his lip, “It won’t happen next time.”

“There are not so many next time. If you lose the shot, then it’s lost.” Bian Shengjian took a deep breath, resisting the urge to stab him to death on the spot. “Forget it, just remember what I said, anyhow, the second half was just starting.”

“Yes.” Zhou Li still kept his head down.

“Cheer up!” Bian Shengjian slapped him hard on the shoulder. “Morale! If morale is gone, you’ll really lose everything! Do you know that?”

“Third brother, drop it.” Lu Shen came over and patted him on the back. “You’ll only hurt yourself if you get angry.”

“It’s none of your business.” Bian Shengjian pushed him angrily.

“I will recover it back with you.” Lu Shen looked at him, with eyes shining brightly. “Trust me.

Bian Shengjian merely sighed, and then punched him in the chest: “…Okay.”

At the beginning of the second half, the Class 6 was slowly catching up. With the score of   20:18, it was now a dangerous situation for them, and they might just be overtaken at any time.

Perhaps it was because the morale of the people in Class 6 had been regained, and that Pan Zhiwei was now completely in the zone. As long as the ball was passed to him, at least three of the five shots would get in, moreover, all were of three-points.

Very dangerous.

And what was more threatening than Pan Zhiwei at present was that Bian Shengjian found that the physical strength of several team members in his class was gradually falling behind, and they were just basically trying to defend or cover for him. He could only grit his teeth and take the responsibility of scoring goals on his shoulders. Now, after running a lap in the court, he couldn’t help but stop and take a few deep breaths.

” —Pass the ball to me later.” Lu Shen whispered in his ear.

“Okay.” Bian Shengjian wiped the sweat dripping down the tip of his chin, “Shoot it directly, don’t hesitate.”

“En.” Lu Shen glanced at him, and when he was about to say something more, Bian Shengjian rushed forward again, caught the ball that was flying towards him, and brought it to the basket.

But just as he brushed past Jiang Wei, who stepped forward to defend, Lu Shen clearly saw Jiang Wei bump into Bian Shengjian’s knee sideways at a very weird and conspicuous angle. Bian Shengjian then was caught off guard. When he fell down, he took the opportunity to catch the ball and passed it to Pan Zhiwei with a wave of his hand.

Another three-points, but at the same time, the referee blew his whistle.

 “Stop!”

“Brother Jian!!” Zhou Li roared, and rushed up to help Bian Shengjian as fast as he could, “Fuck, are you okay!”

“…fine.” Bian Shengjian gritted his teeth, “A fool bumped into my leg.” 

“Fuck!” Zhou Li immediately roared angrily again, “Someone committed a foul, referee!”

“Who?” The referee glanced at him.

“Him, it’s him!” Zhou Li pointed at Jiang Wei. “He made a nasty foul and hit someone’s leg!”

The referee turned his head and glanced at the supervisor next to him. After receiving a negative answer, he withdrew his gaze. “That time, it does not count as a foul.”

“Damn, you’re fucking blind….” 

Bian Shengjian covered Zhou Li’s mouth as soon as he yelled halfway. “Do you want to be sent off? You idiot.”

“Let me see.” Lu Shen pulled up his shorts with a cold face, and as expected, he saw a black-blue bruise on his knee, and his skin was even a little ripped on the edge.

“I’m fine.” Bian Shengjian brushed his hand away and stood up. “Just a minor injury.”

“Don’t push yourself.” Lu Shen’s tone turned cold, especially when he met Jiang Wei’s gloating eyes. “I’m still here.”

“I said I’m fine.” Bian Shengjian stood up and jumped on the spot a few times. Although it was a little inconvenient to move, it did not affect him much to continue playing in the game.

 “…Damn, you’re really cheap.”

“Listen up, Zhou Li,” Bian Shengjian moved his injured leg again, and said quickly, “Now, I am not the main force, but Lu Shen is, he’s in better shape than me.”

Zhou Li gritted his teeth and said, “But……”

“No buts!” Bian Shengjian raised his voice, “Do you fucking want to win?”

“Yes.” Zhou Li’s eyes were a little red.

“Then pass the ball to him, but at critical moments, you also should not hesitate to shoot if you can.” Bian Shengjian said.

Seeing that they had recovered, the referee blew the whistle again, but at this moment the Class 6 had overtaken their score and was now on the lead with a 27:30. They’re just three points short.

“Play harder!” Bian Shengjian shouted when Lu Shen received the ball.

Lu Shen didn’t speak, but jumped up a second before Pan Zhiwei rushed over.

There was almost a half-court distance from their spot to the basket.

“Tch.” Pan Zhiwei lowered his arms and snorted disdainfully. “Fool.”

Lu Shen didn’t watch the ball, but lowered his head and stared at his toes.

“Fuck, the ball went in even at such a distance!” Someone roared.

Pan Zhiwei turned his head instantly, and the speed was so fast that he almost twisted his neck. “…Damn it!”

After seeing the ball go in, he stared at Lu Shen angrily. However, now they had already entered the white hot stage of the finale. He couldn’t care less about it anymore, and yelled at the others with a wave of his hand.

 “Keep an eye on him! Keep an eye on him to death!”

“If you dare attack him again, I will destroy you.” When Lu Shen ran past him, he said in a low voice, but every word seemed to be cold as ice. “Trash.”

“Damn it, surround him!” Pan Zhiwei roared after realizing it.

Bian Shengjian propped his hands on his knees, sweating and glanced at the scoreboard

35: 35 

“There are still two minutes until the game ends!” The referee shouted.

Zhou Li’s hands were shaking a little at the moment, but he still took the ball from Lu Shen in an orderly manner, jumped and shot it.

But it was a pity that the ball merely bounced out of the basket after rolling a few times, and happened to be picked up by Jiang Wei who was waiting below.

“One point!” Jiang Wei cheered when the ball went into the basket, and at the same time gave Zhou Li a provocative look.

“One minute till the end of the game!” The referee shouted again.

“What should I do……” Zhou Li’s palms began to sweat crazily.

At this time, Lu Shen finally avoided the encirclement of several people, grabbed the ball before Bian Shengjian, then briefly looked at the other before smiling tacitly.

The ball was passed to Zhou Li again.

“Damn… passing it to me again?” Zhou Li couldn’t help but glance at Bian Shengjian, but he instantly turned around and ran towards the basket without any further hesitation.

Pan Zhiwei was waiting for him under the basket, and he sneered when he saw the expression on Zhou Li’s face.

“Believe in yourself!” Bian Shengjian roared, “Shoot! There is no time!”

Zhou Li jumped up when several people rushed towards him at the same time. He didn’t even know that he could jump so high in his life. Sure enough, when people were desperate, their potential would be pushed beyond the limit.

“Go!” Zhou Li roared, and the ball flew away towards the basket.

The expression on Pan Zhiwei’s face changed instantly, probably because he didn’t expect him to choose to throw the ball at this moment, and after a pause for two seconds, he quickly jumped up to block him. Unfortunately it was too late.

The ball went in. 

Two points.

Almost as soon as the ball hit the ground, the referee blew his whistle.

 “The game is over! Class 4 wins!”

“Ahhhhhhhh!” 

The girls inside the gymnasium shouted like they were tearing their throats, and some of them were even so excited that they rushed directly to the court, and it seemed that they were going towards Bian Shengjian.

 “Ah Brother Jian, you are amazing!!”

“Hey, I wasn’t the one who scored.” 

Bian Shengjian twitched the corners of his mouth, but when he turned around, Zhou Li hugged him fiercely. “Brother Jian! I…….Our class won! Fuck!”

“Hey, are you crying in excitement?” Bian Shengjian smiled with the corners of his mouth curled up, reluctantly saying, “Mn, you played well.”

“You guys, don’t come here! Brother Jian belongs to me!” Zhou Li smiled and wiped away his tears, pointing at the girls behind him holding water bottles or towels, and then shouted, “Go away, go away!”

“Damn.” Bian Shengjian was taken aback, turned around and glanced at the girls. “Zhou Li, I finally now know why you are still single.”

“Shit, I’m so happy!” Zhou Li turned his eyes and shouted at the black-faced group of Class 6. “Hey, you people! Don’t forget our agreement! If you go renege, you will be this person’s fucking grandson!”

“Fuck you.” Pan Zhiwei cursed, spat hard on the ground and wanted to rush up.

“Hey Brother Pan!” Jiang Wei quickly stopped him, “Forget it.”

“You fucker! Didn’t I tell you to watch him?” Pan Zhiwei gave him a hard smack. “Trash!”

“It’s none of my business!” Jiang Wei finally yelled unbearably, “Pan Zhiwei, don’t you dare go too far!”

When they were still fighting over there, Lu Shen stepped forward and forcibly pulled Zhou Li away, put his arm around Bian Shengjian’s shoulder and said affectionately, “You’ve worked hard, Third brother.”

“Not worked hard, it’s just that fate is so cruel.” Bian Shengjian clicked his tongue and rubbed his leg as if nothing had happened.

“Does it still hurt?” Lu Shen was about to squat down to check his injury.

“Hey! No need.” Bian Shengjian quickly reached out to grab him, “Just go back and rub some ointment on it.”

“Be careful!” Lu Shen’s expression suddenly changed when he raised his head, and he immediately extended his hand out behind Bian Shengjian’s head.

A flying ball was unexpectedly aimed at the back of his head, and Lu Shen swiftly blocked it which made his hand turn red immediately.

“Fuck.” Bian Shengjian was startled, and turned around in an instant. “What’s wrong?”

Pan Zhiwei gave him a gloomy look, shook his hand, turned around and followed a few people off the court.

“Did he try to hit me with a ball?” Bian Shengjian was so shocked that his voice almost cracked. “I don’t know that there are still people who are so shameless?”

“I really want to kill them.” Lu Shen said in a low voice, frowned and rubbed his hands.

“Show me your hand,” Bian Shengjian pinched his wrist and looked carefully. He then took a deep breath but did not suppress his rising anger.

“Damn…….does it hurt?”

“It doesn’t hurt.” Lu Shen said and then stretched out his hand in front of him, “but I want you to blow on it.”

“…Blow your uncle!” Bian Shengjian stared at him for a few seconds, but still blew lightly on the red spot after a while. “Whoosh, whoosh, pain, fly away quickly…….is it okay now?”

Sigh, Third brother, you are so cute.” Lu Shen smiled and hugged him, “I really want to be with you forever.”

Bian Shengjian became stunned, but his heart had suddenly skipped a beat.

After hesitating for a few seconds, he slowly reached out and hugged him as well. “…Mn, me too.”
