Copy of Resentment - Chapter 3
Who are you
Bian Shengjian felt a cool air rushing down his back, and his arms were suddenly drenched in sweat, but after a few seconds of staring at the man, his panic transformed to rage. His tone was practically coiled in sparks as he bent down and grabbed the man by the collar and yanked him from the ground.
“What the hell are you looking at?”
The man was dragged up by his neck and did not fight back. He simply stared at him the entire time. A thin smile came on his face when his gaze dropped on the hand clutching his neck. “Great…You can still touch me.”
“What are you talking about?” Bian Shengjian’s knuckles snapped and kicked the man’s leg with a cold face. “Are you sick? What are you pretending to be dead and lying here?
“Sorry, I…” The man looked at him and coughed gently. “I just fell asleep accidentally.”
“Psycho.” Bian Shengjian snorted and released his hand, bent down and picked up his mobile phone. “There’s no one in this broken school. Can you feel asleep lying here? Go to hell.”
“I’m a ghost.” The man said.
Bian Shengjian’s movements suddenly stopped. It took him a few seconds to look up at this psychopath again, only to see the man showing him a bright smile, and the two tiger teeth protruding from the neat column were quite dazzling.
…he looks alright.
Bian Shengjian locked his gaze on him for two seconds before lowering his head and patting the grass cuttings on the corner of his clothes. “Take medicine if you are sick. I am leaving. ”
“Can you do me a favor?” The man wiped the corner of his mouth, and his tone was a little soft when he spoke. “My name is Lu Shen, thank you for waking me up.”
“…What’s up?” Bian Shengjian frowned. Although this man named Lu Shen was talking in a bizzare manner, he still reluctantly opened his mouth when he looked at his pale face, “Want me to send you to the hospital?”
“My lock fell in the grass, can you help me find it?” Lu Shen coughed a few times and looked at him.
“Lock?”Bian Shengjian paused for a moment before taking a few steps towards the lawn. Among the crushed grass stalks, a slender chain could be seen. When he reached out and pinched it, he saw that a hefty black iron was still attached behind it. The shape was similar to the longevity lock that adults give to youngsters, however the craftsmanship was not ordinary at first appearance. Despite the fact that it was iron, the surface has a jade-like brilliance. The pattern was likewise simple and uncomplicated. It was a lotus with nine petals.
“Yours.” Bian Shengjian raised his hand and threw the lock over. Lu Shen grabbed the chain in his hand with a flick of his fingertips in mid-air. Quickly put it back on his neck and breathed a sigh of relief. “Thank you.”
Bian Shengjian narrowed his eyes and watched the piece of black iron fall on Lu Shen’s chest, making the small piece of visible skin even paler. He couldn’t help but ask, “Why are you wearing this thing? “
“I have been wearing it since I was a child.” Lu Shen raised his head and smiled. Seeing those two tiny tiger teeth, Shengjian’s heart was inexplicably itchy, and he turned around with a sprint. “Whatever.”
“Did you transfer from another school?” Lu Shen quickly followed suit, “I’m from this school too, where are you going? I can take you.”
“You too?” Bian Shengjian glanced at him suspiciously, although Lu Shen was about the same height as him, he always looked silly when he smiled. Judging from his age, he should not be in the same class as him. “I am a sophomore in high school. “
“I’m also in the second year of high school, what class are you in?” Lu Shen said immediately.
“… Class four.” Bian Shengjian said. Although he didn’t want to pay any attention to this psychopath that scared him to the point of jumping into the lake ten minutes ago, No. 4 Middle School was too big and too convoluted. He reckoned that he wouldn’t find where the dormitory building was when it got dark. After hesitating for a while, he said, “Where is the boys’ dormitory? I’ll put some luggage in.”
“The dormitory building? It’s right next to the cafeteria. I’ll take you there.” Lu Shen took the suitcase naturally and pushed it forward, then turned his head and winked at him. “What a coincidence, I’m also in class four.”
“I’ll do it myself.” Bian Shengjian frowned and snatched his suitcase back. Although he was too lazy to think about all Lu Shen’s weird actions just now, he still asked casually since he was able to get this chance. ” Oh, what’s the class like?”
“You’ll know when school starts tomorrow.” Lu Shen said with a smile.
“School starts tomorrow, and there’s not even a single person here?” Bian Shengjian clicked his tongue and followed him across a path, squinting his eyes and looking at the golden light that fell before sunset.
“There are relatively few people in our school…You will know when you arrive in class tomorrow.” Lu Shen said.
Bian Shengjian was a little annoyed by his vague answer, so he went all the way to the front of the dormitory without a word next to the dormitory number Bian Jianhua gave him, and planned to carry his luggage upstairs.
“I’ll help you?” Lu Shen grabbed a corner of the suitcase.
“No,” Bian Shengjian pushed him impatiently, “Go back to the lake and sleep by yourself.”
“Let me take care of my new classmate.” Lu Shen just stretched out his hand and fetched the suitcase. Bian Shengjian didn’t expect the man to be still energetic. The suitcase of nearly 20 kilograms was carried to the fifth floor at one go. Not only did he not blush, he wasn’t even panting.
Ghosts don’t need to breathe. Such an idea suddenly popped out of his mind, and the tendon in the back of his head suddenly became numb.
So when he took over the suitcase, he touched Lu Shen’s arm vaguely, and he was relieved when he felt him warm to the touch, at the same time despised his idiotic behavior.
“Do you live in 503? It’s just right next to my room” Lu Shen looked up at the room number and clapped the dust on his hands. “ What a coincidence.”
“Thanks, it’s quite the coincidence.” Bian Shengjian perfunctorily opened the door of the dormitory: “But I’m in a single room…fuck?”
He stared blankly at this run-down dormitory. The ceiling walls were discolored and swelling, and the bed’s handrails were rusty. Even the tiles on the balcony were the same old white and green color from more than ten years ago, albeit a little yellowed with age.
Standing at the door, Bian Shengjian looked at this narrow space with a dusty smell, and looked up at the broken fan on the top, which was full of dust. He gritted his teeth and turned around without slamming the door, “This is… the dormitory?”
“Yeah, although it’s a bit shabby here…you live alone?” Lu Shen turned his head to look at him.
Bian Shengjian took a deep breath to suppress the shock and a bunch of incomprehensible complex emotions, and said with a sullen face, “Is there no other dormitory?”
“No, there are only two dormitories in No. 4 Middle School, and the one at the back is for girls.” Lu Shen paused for a while, and then said in a soothing tone, “It’s alright. Although the place looks shabby, it’s still very convenient to take a shower. There’s hot water as soon as the faucet is turned. People who used to live here had to take buckets downstairs to carry hot water!”
Bian Shengjian turned his head and looked at him for a long time, but couldn’t understand the meaning of what he said. In his opinion, it should be common sense to have hot water as soon as you turn the faucet. As for taking a bath and having to take a bucket downstairs to carry water, it’s completely out of his cognitive range. Now, he only knows that if he is allowed to live in such a broken environment for two years, he will go crazy.
I dare say that this broken school has spent all its money on the expansion and gate, right? If you have this spare money, you should renovate the dormitory! This will be a dilapidated building in two years! “
Bian Shengjian took another deep breath before letting it out slowly. He looked at the large suitcase containing his personal belongings piled beside the shelf and was suddenly confused.
“I’ll help you clean up, I see you have a lot of things.” Lu Shen reached out and wanted to pat him on the shoulder, “It’s alright since it’s all here…”
“Go away!” Caught off guard, Bian Shengjian turned back and punched him on the shoulder. His eyes were a little gloomy. “Let me be for a while.”
Lu Shen was hit by this powerful punch and retreated a few steps. He rubbed his shoulder in pain, but his tone was still not angry, “That……then I’m leaving, you can slowly clean up.”
Bian Shengjian didn’t speak. He slowly carried the suitcase into the dormitory and slammed the door behind him.
“See you tomorrow!” Lu Shen shouted outside the door.
Bian Shengjian didn’t look back, and walked twice around the dormitory. He felt his brain hurt even more after witnessing all the details–
First of all, the toilet and bathroom in the dormitory are not separated. There is only a curtain between the shower and the squatting pit. Bian Shengjian can hardly imagine what it will be like if he lives in such a shabby place with other people. Someone poops next to you while you’re taking a shower?
Second, the outside wash basin was similarly an old-fashioned square groove, and the guy who constructed it was most likely blind. After all, this was also a dormitory where high school students resided. Because the wash basin was shorter than Bian Shengjian’s thigh root, he had to bend down hard every day to wash his hands.
Bian Shengjian suppressed the rage and kicked the door hard. After turning for a long time, he didn’t even have a place to sit, because the bed was also full of dust.
“Fuck.” He glanced at the sky that was about to get dark outside. At this time, he probably didn’t have time to call for a cleaning service, not to mention he didn’t know what to call this kind of dormitory building of this wild mountain school.
After hesitating for a while, Bian Shengjian pushed open the door of the dormitory, but was caught off guard by Lu Shen, who was squatting at the door. “…Your uncle! What the hell are you doing squatting here? “
“I wanted to help you clean up, but it should be too late now at this time.” Lu Shen glanced at him and opened the door of the next room, “Why don’t you sleep in my room tonight, it’s pretty clean.”
“No.” Bian Shengjian immediately refused. Even if he was in a bad situation, he would not be reduced to sleeping in the bed of a stranger he had only known for three hours.
“You sleep here and I’ll go out.” Lu Shen frowned slightly, “Be obedient.”
Bian Shengjian’s scalp exploded when he heard the last two words, and immediately stared at him without blinking. “…What did you say?”
“I said,” Lu Shen sighed, “The dormitory has access control. After seven o’clock in the evening, the gate will be automatically locked, and a hard break will trigger an automatic alarm.”
“Access control? Alarm?” Bian Shengjian was stunned by this series of words. It took a long time to spit out. “Then I’ll climb over.”
“Then go through it. Anyway, the school gate is locked.” Lu Shen shrugged. ” Besides, on this night, can you find the school gate alone?”
Bian Shengjian stared at him without speaking.
“Come on, the quilts and pillows on the bed are all new, I haven’t slept on them before.” Lu Shen said.
Bian Shengjian stood silently for a long time, and finally squeezed out two words from between his teeth. “…Thank you.”
“You’re welcome.” Lu Shen immediately smiled.
502 next door was indeed very clean, although the degree of shabbiness was the same, but the faint perfume smell that blew at the moment when the door was opened still made Bian Shengjian’s brows loosen. “Are you also in a single room?”
“Well, there are only a few people staying there, so there are several vacant rooms on each floor.” Lu Shen said, shaking off the folded quilt on the bed and laying it out, “You can sleep here.”
Bian Shengjian hesitated and walked over, grabbed the corner of the quilt and smelled it. It was indeed a very clean and refreshing smell of washing powder, mixed with the fragrance of roasted dust mite after being exposed to the sun. At this moment, looking at Lu Shen who was almost beaten by him not long ago, Bian Shengjian finally felt a little embarrassed. “That… is your shoulder okay?”
“It’s alright.” Lu Shen leaned against the bedstead and hooked the corner of his mouth, “By the way, I don’t know your name yet?”
“Bian Shengjian.” Bian Shengjian suddenly felt sheepish after speaking, and looked at Lu Shen for a few seconds before the latter’s figure moved, “Okay, then take a shower and go to bed early. “
“…Then where are you going to sleep tonight?” Bian Shengjian suddenly remembered this important question. He didn’t communicate well with Lu Shen before, and he was not shameless enough to let others caught a cold night breeze outside on the first night of meeting, but the single bed in the dormitory was small, let alone squeezing two people, even Bian Shengjian was a little restrained when sleeping alone.
Besides, he couldn’t accept the intimate act of sharing a bed with a good-looking same-sex person at once. He sighed after hesitating again and again. “Forget it, I’ll go back. “
“Don’t worry.” Lu Shen put a hand on his chest, “There is a folding bed downstairs where the dormitory aunt sleeps, I can make do with it for the night.”
Without waiting for Bian Shengjian to say anything, he took a few steps back and quickly closed the door. “Good night.”
“…Good night.” Bian Shengjian frowned as he watched Lu Shen’s figure flash past the window, he couldn’t help pulling his collar, fanning himself and taking a breath.
