Pen Fairy (Part 1)
“No.” Lu Shen raised his voice, “This kind of thing is absolutely not allowed! Why didn’t you tell me before?”
“What?” Bian Shengjian was stunned for a moment, his wet hair was still dripping after taking a shower. “…I thought those two people were just joking around.”
“Eight o’clock tonight, 603, building C, male dormitory?” Lu Shen ignored him, lowered his head and began to flip through the post that Shengjian brushed up today. “Are you sure it was posted by someone from our school?”
“Ah, yes.” Bian Shengjian frowned, “Why, are you going to stop them?”
“It’s half past seven.” Lu Shen glanced at the time and sighed, “Should still be able to make it in time.”
“This kind of ordinary psychic game can really invite resentful spirits?” Bian Shengjian looked at him suspiciously, “If it’s that simple, then can’t the two of us catch them by playing this game over and over again?”
“That’s different.” Lu Shen also looked at him, “And the aura of the two of us has already leaked out, so it wouldn’t work on them.”
“That…..” Bian Shengjian became a little nervous at what he said, and took a step forward, “I really didn’t know before, I…………”
“Forget it, it’s okay.” Lu Shen shook his head slightly, took the towel in his hand naturally, pulled him to sit on a chair beside him, and began to gently wipe his hair. “Just in case——we should just go there and tell the people in that dormitory not to mess around.”
“Okay—” Bian Shengjian sighed and did not speak. Lu Shen wrapped his hair with a towel and wiped it with a force that was quite comfortable. Thinking about it again, this seemed to be the most intimate action between the two of them in this period of time. He couldn’t help but sigh again. “Alas.”
“What’s wrong?” Lu Shen stopped what he was doing, and bent slightly to look at him.
“It’s nothing.” Bian Shengjian stared at him for a while, then suddenly reached out and cupped his face, “Lu Xiao Shen.”
“En.” Lu Shen responded.
“You seem to have lost weight.” Bian Shengjian touched his face.
“…….I have?” Lu Shen smiled slightly, and a gentle light naturally flowed from his pupils. “Why do I feel the same as before?”
“Really lost weight.” Bian Shengjian frowned, and suddenly felt a little sore in his nose for some reason. “…Fucker, it feels uncomfortable when touching you.”
“Is it?” Lu Shen sighed softly, bent down and hugged his head, put his chin between his moist and fragrant hair and took a deep breath, “Third brother, you smell good.“
“Don’t fucking change the subject.” Bian Shengjian struggled to get his head out, and pinched his chin viciously, “When this matter is resolved, I have to fatten you up again, do you hear me?”
“Why does this sound so strange to me?” Lu Shen couldn’t help laughing, and pinched his face with his hands, “……Third brother, you have actually lost weight too. “
“I know.” Bian Shengjian clicked his tongue, and suddenly put his arms around him, and squeezed his waist forcefully, “Damn it, you can find out how much weight was lost by feeling it.”
Lu Shen also hugged him tightly, and it took him a long time before he reached out and gently touched his head, “Hm, really lost weight.”
Bian Shengjian was silent for a while and raised his head, feeling Lu Shen’s warm breath brushing against his face, he paused for a while, and naturally leaned forward to kiss him on the lips, and the hand that was on his waist unconsciously caressed that area–
“Hmm…” Lu Shen groaned lightly, but he didn’t make any other unnecessary movements, he just simply enjoyed the warm moment at present.
He had thought many times before that it would be great if he and Bian Shengjian could be a normal couple. Although it would be a little troublesome for two boys to be together, with Third brother’s character, he wouldn’t definitely need to care about nonsense worldly talk and he wouldn’t need to be afraid himself.
The two of them would eat, sleep and quarrel together like ordinary couples. When they came out to their parents, there might even be a groundbreaking argument, but no matter what, if they could bear it together and walk through these roads together, when they get old and basked in the sun at the door, the two toothless old men may still be able to laugh and talk about things in those years……
If so, how wonderful it would be.
Lu Shen buried his head in Bian Shengjian’s neck and rubbed it lightly.
“What are you doing?” Bian Shengjian felt a little itchy from being rubbed by him, and pulled his back irritably, “Dogs don’t even pester people like you.”
“Then I’ll be your dog.” Lu Shen’s voice was a little muffled.
“Tsk.” Bian Shengjian pinched the nape of his neck and pulled him in front of him to stare at him, “Classmate Lu Xiao Shen.”
“Hmm.” Lu Shen looked up at him slightly.
“If you want to be a dog, then I will be the dog leash, leading you all day long.” Bian Shengjian said.
Lu Shen was stunned for a moment and couldn’t help but laugh, “…Ah, I almost didn’t realize that you were talking about love.”
“Let’s go.” Bian Shengjian didn’t look at him any more, and held his hand a little roughly.
“Okay.” Lu Shen smiled and squeezed his knuckles.
“Brother Niu, is this room 603?”
“What Brother Niu, my surname is Wei!” Wei Shen glared at the submissive boy with honest glasses on his face, and glanced at the phone screen suspiciously, “You are that one………..what “Seven Times a Night”?
“It’s me,” the little boy smiled shyly, “My name is Cheng Sheng.”
Wei Shen twitched the corners of his mouth, then raised his chin to signal him to close the door. “You’re quite brave, are you from our school?”
“Mn, I’m in Class 9, sophomore year.” Cheng Sheng pushed his glasses and said.
“You must have also known what happened a few days ago.” Wei Shen glanced at him with a half-smile, “Two people died in one go at our school, and a woman that had gone crazy from fright.”
“I know.” Cheng Sheng nodded seriously.
“Then you are still willing to come and play with me?” Wei Shen patted the table to signal him to sit down, and said, “You are really not afraid of inviting something?”
“I………” Cheng Sheng bit his lip, “Actually, I played this game at home before, but nothing happened……Therefore I just want to take the opportunity and come to you to give it a try.”
“Yo,” Wei Shen raised his eyebrows in surprise, “What do you want to ask the Pen Fairy?”
Cheng Sheng paused, and the shy smile on his face became stronger, “I want to ask when will I find a cute little brother to be my boyfriend.”
Wei Shen was silent for a while, stood up and pointed to the door, “Why don’t you go out, I’ll just find someone else.”
“Stop, Brother Niu,” Cheng Sheng said impatiently, “My roommates didn’t want to play this game with me before, and after the accident, there were only a few people remaining in class……then after all that trouble, I finally saw your post!”
“My fucking name is Wei!” Wei Shen was speechless, but at this moment he really didn’t know who to find to replace him, thus he could only sit down again with a sullen expression on his face, “Damn, you are really shameless……let me tell you, I’m a straight man!”
“It’s okay, I don’t like your type either.” Cheng Sheng said seriously, “After all, there is no result for two tops being together.”
“…..Scram!” Wei Shen endured so as not to punch him in the face, he had absolutely no interest in discussing this with him. “I’m not a gay man, hurry up and sit down.”
“Oh.” Cheng Sheng obediently sat down on the stool.
“You should know the rules, right?” Wei Shen clicked his tongue, walked over and turned off the light, leaving only the two candles he had placed on the table just now.
“I know.” Cheng Sheng nodded, looking inexplicably excited at the orange flames dancing in front of him in the darkness, “Brother Niu, can you really invite something later?”
“I said, my surname is…….forget it.” Wei Shen couldn’t help but touch his forehead, “Just give it a try, won’t we know after a while?”
“I also saw the video posted anonymously in the morning.” Cheng Sheng said, his tone full of uncontrollable excitement, “I feel that there are really ghosts in our school!”
“…..Are you really not afraid?” Wei Shen couldn’t help squinting at him, “Aren’t you afraid of ghosts coming to you tomorrow night?”
“I’m not afraid.” Cheng Sheng puffed out his chest proudly when he said this, “My grandma used to be a sorceress in the village, and she calculated my birthday horoscope for me, saying that I was born with a hard life, and I will definitely live over eighty years old.” (TL: Hard life-person in the world who often encounters all kinds of ups and downs and difficulties from birth. Something happens every few days, and he will not die no matter how much he struggles.)
“Awesome.” Wei Shen was silent for a while and couldn’t say anything else. He just felt that Cheng Sheng’s character was definitely not as cute as he appeared on the surface. If it wasn’t for this psychic game that required two people to complete, he really didn’t want to find this psychopath.
“Hold out your hand.”
“Okay.” Cheng Sheng stretched out his left hand, and naturally touched the back of Wei Shen’s right hand as required by the rules of the game. He crossed his fingers and lightly held a freshly sharpened pencil. Underneath was a sheet with the words’ Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming, Qing, Modern Times’ written on it, and with 123456, the hands hung down naturally but the arms did not touch the table, the pen was held with moderate strength so that the tip hung on the white paper.
“Here we go.” Wei Shen said softly.
Cheng Sheng hummed softly as a reply, and then the two of them spoke at the same time in a tacit understanding, and skillfully recited the spell that would invite the Pen Fairy. “Pen Fairy, Pen Fairy, you are my past life, and I am your present life, if you want to continue your relationship with me, please draw a circle on the paper.”
After one pass, the tip of the pencil was still hanging steadily above the paper, but Wei Shen and Cheng Sheng knew the rules of the game very well, and knew that if they really wanted to get something out, it would definitely not be enough to only recite the spell once, thus they continue to recite together in unison.
“Pen Fairy, Pen Fairy, you are my past life, and I am your present life, if you want to continue your relationship with me, please draw a circle on the paper. Pen Fairy, Pen Fairy, you are my past life, and I am your present life, if you want to continue your relationship with me, please draw a circle on the paper……”
Five minutes passed, and the tip of the pen was still hanging on the paper without moving. Wei Shen felt a little sore after a while because he had to keep his arm in the air. However, through the flickering candlelight, he could see Cheng Sheng staring at the white paper on the table with a dazed gaze, without even blinking his eyes. This state of extreme concentration actually made him feel a little nervous, so he couldn’t help but stop and clear his throat, “You……….”
“Pen Fairy, Pen Fairy, you are my past life, and I am your present life. If you want to continue your relationship with me, please draw a circle on the paper.” Cheng Sheng didn’t look at him, and was still chanting the spell to himself, with no significant fluctuations in his tone throughout the entire process. He was so calm that he seemed to be doing something very ordinary. “Pen Fairy, Pen Fairy, you are my past life, and I am your present life. If you want to continue your relationship with me, please draw a circle on the paper…”
Wei Shen gritted his teeth, and could only bite the bullet and recite along with him. A little cold sweat oozed uncontrollably from the palms of the two that were clasped together, but because of Cheng Sheng’s support, they were still holding it firmly for the time being, but if one looked carefully at the nib, one would find that it was slightly trembling.
Before the game started, Wei Shen had already closed the doors and windows of the dormitory, but at the tenth minute of reciting, he felt inexplicably cold, and it seemed that a gust of wind was blowing from his side, blowing against his chest. The coldness blowing in his ears made his spine feel a little numb, and he finally couldn’t help but stop, “Hey, say, Cheng Sheng…”
“Shh.” Cheng Sheng finally stopped and stared at him, but Wei Shen felt that his expression was very strange to him, or perhaps because of the candle light, Cheng Sheng seemed to have become another person, even the expression became strange. “Continue, I feel like it’s coming soon.”
“Okay.” Wei Shen thought to himself that no matter what, this game was first proposed by him to play. It would be too fucking cowardly if he gave up halfway, thus he could only cooperate bluntly and recite the spell. “Pen Fairy, Pen Fairy, you are my past life, and I am your present life. If you want to continue your relationship with me, please draw a circle on the paper. Pen Fairy, Pen Fairy, you are my past life, and I am your present life. If you want to continue your relationship with me, please draw a circle on the paper…”
Ten minutes had passed, and the tip of the pencil held by the two of them had visibly trembled, but let alone a circle, not even a few tiny dots were left on the white paper.
Wei Shen took a deep breath, feeling that his arms had gone extremely sore, he gritted his teeth and was about to interrupt Cheng Sheng, who was already in a dazed state, when he suddenly felt something and suddenly lowered his head to stare at the white paper laid out on the edge of the table.
Paper…….No, it should be said that the pen moved.
But Wei Shen couldn’t describe his state in words at that time. He only felt that the chills on his body were getting stronger and stronger, and his eyes even clearly saw the vertically upward candle flame swaying from side to side.
There shouldn’t be any wind inside the room.
…then why is the flame swaying?
Wei Shen stared at the nib of the pen and the paper, and in a trance, he really felt that someone was gently holding his hand–
“Pen Fairy, Pen Fairy, you are my past life, and I am your present life, if you want to continue your relationship with me, please draw a circle on the paper……” Cheng Sheng recited softly, his tone gradually beginning to appear ecstatic.
Wei Shen just watched helplessly as the two held the pencil with their hands crossed, and the tip of the pen began to move slowly and firmly on the paper, rubbing against it and making a slight noise.
When it finally stopped, it left a near perfect circle on the paper.
