Warm Waters: Chapter 11 – Part 3

Another year was coming to an end.

Today was Ji Yan’s 30th birthday; the two were wearing heavy clothes and taking a walk under the heavy snow.
  
Lu Yichen took the initiative to pull Ji Yan’s hand into his pocket.

Ji Yan smiled and looked at the reliable young man next to him with some emotions.

They have been together for seven years already.
  
“Brother Yan, do you want to go for hot pot later?”
  
Ji Yan shook his head: “No, I want to keep fit.”
  
“What do you want to eat then?”

” Whatever.”

Lu Yichen’s eyes narrowed with a smile: “Whatever, so eating shit is also fine?”
  
“…”
  
Sure enough, Lu Yichen was not the same Lu Yichen who didn’t even dare say a swear word when they first got together.

Now, he just farted and burped as he pleased and wouldn’t take the trouble to conduct himself.
  
Ji Yan pulled him along and said: “Let’s go, let’s go eat shit!”
  
Then, the two came to a barbecue restaurant. They had some skewers with beer.
  
Lu Yichen looked at ji Yan who was eating to his heart content and said helplessly: “Who just said that they worry about their health? Is this considered healthy?”
  
“Yes ah.”
  
“……”
  
Lu Yichen learned to never argue with what Ji Yan says. For one, he doesn’t want to anger Ji Yan, and two, it’s always him the one to admit defeat and say he is wrong in the end.
  
The barbecue shop played an old song which made for a nostalgic atmosphere.
  
Half an hour later, Lu Yichen was drunk.
  
Ji Yan stared at Lu Yichen, who was sitting across the road holding the wine bottle and shaking it.

After paying the bill, he helped him up and prepared to take him home.
  
On the way back, Lu Yichen’s face was red, lying on Ji Yan’s body, he suddenly said: “Brother Yan… Don’t break up with me again.”
  
Ji Yan didn’t expect Lu Yichen to bring up such old matters.
  
“That day I went to your fast-food shop to look for you but you weren’t there… Aunt Lee said you left…….I came back home alone… I didn’t dare call you for fear that you’d find it annoying and change your number, then I wouldn’t be able to find you…”
  
Ji Yan eyes got a little teary, he patted Lu Yichen’s face and said:” Well, come on, sober up, I’m right here, aren’t I? I am already at this age, can you stop being this sentimental?”
  
“I worked very hard to buy you that pair of shoes and I kept holding them in case they got lost and stolen. The bus was extremely crowded, there were no seats, and I stood for almost thirty hours.”
  
Lu Yichen’s tears flowed down as he continued: “I… got off the bus, and I was looking in the wrong place, I thought your cousin had lied to me, I couldn’t find you. I called you and couldn’t get through… Fortunately… Fortunately, I finally found you in the end.”
  
Ji Yan wiped away Lu Yichen’s tears and sighed, his voice trembling: “Yes, I see that you have felt wronged. I am not this grieving even though I was the one who got the fake shoes.”
  
“I was wrong, don’t break up with me” Lu Yichen hugged Ji Yan almost to death.

Advertisements

Ji Yan was almost strangled and didn’t know how he was going to take Lu Yichen home.

Back home, Ji Yan undressed Lu Yichen and stuffed him into his bed.

He was tired and panting heavily, he planned to take a shower but just when he was about to get up, Lu Yichen grabbed his arm and dragged him back to the bed.
  
“Brother Yan…”

“I’m here, I am not breaking up with you, just go to sleep.”
  
Lu Yichen rolled over with Ji Yan between his legs: “Mmm…”

“Brother Yan, you’re so nice.”
  
“You are also very nice.”
  
“Brother Yan, I love you.”
  
“Me too.”
  
“Brother Yan…”

“Lu Yichen! Can you just go to sleep!”
  
“Can…”

Advertisements

A few minutes later…
  
“Brother Yan, how good you are!”
  
Ji Yan: “…”
  
“Brother Yan…”

The following words were completely swallowed as Ji Yan blocked Lu Yichen’s mouth with his lips.
  
Actually, Ji Yan still feels like a frog, still trapped in that pot of warm waters, only the water never gets hot and it has also grown green grass and lotus flowers turning it into a sheltered home for the frog.”

The end

Warm Waters: Chapter 11 – Part 2

A year later, Lu Yichen graduated and returned to Suzhou.

His family, mostly his sick mother resided there.

Advertisements

In fact, the main reason he has decided to return to Suzhou was because of her. She needed him to take care of her.

However, this hasn’t changed the situation with Ji Yan.

It’s still considered as aimlessly relocating.
  
Having lived apart for such a long time, the two got accustomed to this kind of relationship.

Throughout the year, their combined flight and train tickets would sum up to 100.
  
Lu Yichen seldom talked to Ji Yan about his work because Ji Yan did not understand mechanical things, he only knew that the development was not bad.
  
In the third year, Lu Yichen bought a house near Ji Yan’s residence and brought his mother there.
  
Ji Yan had already met Lu Yichen’s mother back when he was still Lu Yichen’s boss in Suzhou, but it was the first time he met her as Lu Yichen’s boyfriend.
  
After greeting Ji Yan, Mother Lu sat quietly on the sofa and presented Ji Yan with some fruit.
  
After a while, Mother Lu chased Lu Yichen away and said to Ji Yan: “He said in this life, it can only be you. I am not an open minded mother, but I am still a mother, so I compromised. I am not sure how long I can live in this body; I want you two to live well.”
  
Ji Yan didn’t know what to say. He griped his hands firmly and said in a serious tone: “We will.”
  
Three days later, Lu Yichen moved into Ji Yan’s house.
  
” Why are you living in mine when you have your own house?”
  
“Brother Yan’s cooking is the best.”
  
When Lu Yichen was twenty-four and Ji Yan was twenty-nine, the two finally had their own home and lived as a family.
  
Lu Yichen became a university professor and continued to do his favorite research.

Advertisements

Work was stable, occasionally publishing a paper and causing a lot of sensation in the academic world.
  
Due to his handsome appearance and young age, he was considered a warm Suzhou native and is very popular with the female students in the North.
  
Ji Yan trusted Lu Yichen and was not afraid of him socializing with other girls and boys at school.

Actually, he did not expect Lu Yichen to be so down to earth and mature for his age, after all, he was still in his early twenties, society is too impetuous, and there are so many temptations around him.

Even friends who have been dating for seven years can break up, let alone Lu Yichen who is still so young.
  
But the truth is that Lu Yichen has really settled down.

Advertisements

When he went out with his friends, he usually boasted about Ji Yan to them, he would say that Ji Yan is the best, the most wonderful and the best looking person man in the world.

Is Ji Yan really that good? Certainly not.

This was the so-called lover’s eyes, you see your lover through a rosy filter.
  
The two were very satisfied with their current state of life.

Ji Yan quit his job as a hotel’s chef and with a few apprentices; he decided to open a small shop.

Advertisements

He would open his restaurant when he is in a good mood and close it when he is in a bad mood, but he can still make enough money to live by.
  
Lu Yichen has many working vacations. As soon as the winter and summer vacations start, the two will travel around to play.

They will often post some of the videos they took on Weibo. It was both a record of their travel journey and daily show affection.

The videos soon got a lot of attention online and the two found themselves becoming internet celebrities with their own on growing fan base.

Warm Waters: Chapter 11 – Part 1

After dinner, the two took a mandarin duck bath[1], after which, Lu Yichen happily took Ji Yan to bed.

After tossing for a long time, Ji Yan reluctantly sat up and leaned against the head of the bed to wipe the sweat off his body.

Advertisements

Lu Yichen changed his posture, leaning on Ji Yan’s lap sideways and looking up at him.
  
Ji Yan looked at the night sky outside their bedroom window and his hand subconsciously went to stroke Lu Yichen’s hair
  
“Tell me something, why won’t you go live in your school’s dormitory? Do you want to keep living alone in this house?”
  
Lu Yichen turned over and stared at the ceiling: “Because…”
  
He grabbed Ji Yan’s hand and continued in a serious tone: “I think of this place as my home.

Although the house is rented but we have lived here together for three years. It is our home so I am reluctant to leave it.”
  
“Brother Yan, I want to have a home with you, I want us to be family” Lu Yichen said.
  
Ji Yan looked at the shining tears in the young man’s eyes and his nose turned sour.

He was moved by his words.
  
“You know what, my dad wants to see you.”
  
 ……
  
On the second weekend of September, Ji Yan took Lu Yichen to meet his father.
  
It was his first time meeting his father-in-law, so Lu Yichen was very cautious and went online to search for tips and advice on how to get along with your father-in-law.

Advertisements

In fact, this was not necessary at all, but Ji Yan finds it amusing to watch the always serious Lu Yichen fret about how to make a good first impression on his father.
  
In the living room, Lu Yichen handed a cup of tea to Ji Yan’s father: “Uncle, this is for you.”
  
Ji Yan felt comfortable leaving these two people together and went to the kitchen to prepare their meal.

When he came out again, he heard his dad say:”Oh my, how are you so studious? You ranked on the top fifty in your province? That son of mine stopped studying at junior high school; he had to learn some skill so he went to a culinary school. The lacking child has managed to bring such a good kid like you!”
 
Ji Yan:? ? ?
  
“No, it’s not; I’m the one who does not deserve of him.”
  
“No way, don’t defend him; wouldn’t I know best how my son’s like?” The old man gave him a kind look.
  
Lu Yichen: “…”
  
“Little Lu, where do you plan to develop your career after graduation?”
  
“Suzhou.”  

“You would be in a different place…” The old father said and got lost in thoughts.
  
“It’s only temporary for the time being, but…”
  
Ji Yan was about to go back to the kitchen but immediately stopped, he hid behind the door and continued to listen.
  
“I plan to develop in Suzhou for two years and then come to Changchun. If we keep being apart, the two of us will get eventually very tired. But there must always be someone to make sacrifices. Brother Yan has compromised for my sake for three years, and it should be me… …”
  
“Good boy!”
  
Ji Yan lowered his eyes and silently returned to the cutting board and cut his vegetables.

Advertisements

In fact, he didn’t want Lu Yichen to make sacrifices for his sake. If there was a better and wider world for him, he hoped that Lu Yichen would fight for it and go. He is still young and there are many possibilities ahead of him.

He did not want Lu Yichen to become like how he once was.
  
After dinner, Ji Yan and Lu Yichen were sitting in the garden downstairs relaxing with the wind blowing on their hair.
  
Ji Yan thought about it and said: “I heard what you said to my dad earlier, do you really want that?”
  
Lu Yichen nodded.
  
“If there is a better and more suitable place for your development, I hope you…”
  
Lu Yichen suddenly hugged Ji Yan: “Brother Yan, we can’t be in different places all the time. Since you choose to stand still, then I will come to you. I am not sacrificing my career; I am just making the most reasonable choice. Brother Yan, do you believe in me? Here, I can also develop.”
  
Ji Yan was persuaded by Lu Yichen in the end: “Well yes,…I believe in you.”

Warm Waters: Chapter 10 -Part 3

After going back, Ji Yan was ready to make some delicious dishes for Lu Yichen while the latter tried clumsily to help him.  

Ji Yan was amused by this, but he didn’t make fun of him since cooking was something to be encouraged.  

Advertisements

“Come here” Ji Yan said to Lu Yichen after cutting a cucumber.
  
“What’s wrong?” Lu Yichen, who was squatting down as he was cutting some green onions, asked and stood up.
  
Ji Yan stood on his tiptoes and kissed him sweetly on the lips: “A reward.”
  
Lu Yichen’s small face turned a little bit red. He then let go of the green onions and held Ji Yan coquettishly: “Brother Yan, I want more.”
  
Ji Yan kissed him again.
  
“No, Brother Yan, I want the kind of reward where I get to stick my tongue in.”
  
“…”
  
“Brother Yan, I want my reward.”
  
“…”
  
“Brother Yan…”
  
Ji Yan finally yielded and kissed Lu Yichen the way he desired.

Advertisements

The moment his tongue went into Lu Yichen’s mouth, Lu Yichen hugged him urgently and sucked on his tongue.
  
After a long time, Ji Yan gasped and pushed him away.
  
“Okay, are we still eating dinner?”

“Yes!” Lu Yichen said with raised lips and a satisfied face.
  
“Go pick up the green onions.”
  
“Is there a reward for that?”
  
Ji Yan didn’t know whether to laugh or cry: “Any rewards after this will have to wait until we finish dinner.”
  
So the moment the meal was ready, Lu Yichen came to Ji Yan again to receive his rewards.
  
Ji Yan looked at him dumbfounded. If he gave him this reward, they wouldn’t be able to eat dinner tonight.
  
“Let’s eat first, okay?”

Advertisements

Ji Yan took out the freshly delivered cake from the refrigerator.

“Today’s your birthday; quit thinking about indecent things in that head of yours.”
  
Lu Yichen sat at the table somewhat at lost.

Without the reward he was promised, he felt like a child who got denied his candy, the deliciousness on the table couldn’t seem to make him forget about it.  

Ji Yan had no choice but to rub Lu Yichen’s hair and kiss him again: “Eat first.”
  
Lu Yichen smiled to himself, his little trick seemed to have worked.
  
Wouldn’t Ji Yan be able to see his little scheme? of course he knew but he just felt like going along with it.
  
“Right, Brother Yan…” Lu Yichen leaned on his chin and looked at Ji Yan sitting opposite of him, wondering: “Do you feel uncomfortable every time we have sex?”  

Advertisements

Ji Yan almost spewed out a mouthful of rice.
  
“See, you don’t seem to like it very much and you’re always reluctant every time I want to do it again. But… Once we make love, you don’t look like you’re having a hard time. Your face is bright red.”
  
“…”
  
“Brother Yan, just tell me if you feel uncomfortable, I will work hard to improve myself.”
  
“Don’t! Stop talking about this.”
  
The problem here is not that I am uncomfortable when we do it, but its is the fact that you are like an electric machine who doesn’t stop. My old joints are not able to keep up with your stamina!

Warm Waters: Chapter 10 – Part 2

Ji Yan slept until noon the next day.

When he woke up, the place beside him was empty and Lu Yichen was not there.
  
Ji Yan thought that he went to class so it was only normal to wake up alone.

Advertisements

Feeling sticky all over, Ji Yan got out of bed and planned to take a long bath.
  
But just as he was about to, a figure suddenly appeared out of nowhere and carried him out bed princess style.
  
Ji Yan was startled: “You! Why aren’t you in class?”
  
Lu Yichen gave him a big smile: “I’m skipping class today; I am staying home with you.”
  
“Skipping class?”
  
“Yes.”
  
“Nonsense, skipping class is wrong.”

” Yes, but…” Lu Yichen tried to explain.

“First, put me down and let me find something to wear!”
  
All this time, Ji Yan has been carried by the neatly dressed Lu Yichen.
  
“I don’t want to” Lu Yichen has definitely learned to play rogue.
  
“Obey.”

“I won’t” Lu Yichen continued to resist.
  
Ji Yan looked at his gentle face for a bit but immediately hardened his heart and put on an angry expression.
  
“…” Lu Yichen only knows how to talk big, in the end; he silently put Ji Yan back on the bed and turned to look for a pair of pajamas that would suit him.
  
Ji Yan touched Lu Yichen’s head and said: “Just go to class for now, when you come back tonight, I will give you something delicious to eat.”
  
“Brother Yan, I don’t want to go” Lu Yichen took Ji Yan’s hand and said with an imploring tone:” Please, Brother Yan, it’s okay to skip class this time, I want to be with you.”

Advertisements

Ji Yan was still a little surprised that Lu Yichen was this clingy; after all, he had never behaved this way before.

He held Lu Yichen’s head and kissed him on the lips, trying to appease him, he said: “Obey, go to your class and let me have some rest. How about I stay here with you for a few more days?”

When Lu Yichen heard Ji Yan was going to live with him for a few more days, his eyes lit up and he instantly agreed to his boyfriend’s request: “This is what you said, you can’t regret it!”
  
Ji Yan smiled: “If you don’t want me to regret it then you have to go.”
  
“Okay, I’m going brother Yan” Lu Yichen was still a bit reluctant but still went to class obediently.
  
After Lu Yichen left, Ji Yan took a bath. During his bath, Ji Yan found that his body had been cleaned.

Advertisements

Ji Yan held the soap slightly stunned. Lu Yichen surprised him more and more.
  
The kid did really grow up. No, this is not right; he should say he is no longer a kid.
  
After taking his bath, Ji Yan got back into the bed and went to sleep again. When he finally woke up, it was already the afternoon, Ji Yan put on his clothes and went out.

Twenty minutes later, he was at Lu Yichen’s University’s gate.
  
School had just finished and young men and women were rushing out.

Ji Yan stood staring at the passing people, trying to find Lu Yichen’s figure.
  
He couldn’t find Lu Yichen but instead he saw Zhou Ke and Xia Jinian.

Xia Jinian was the first to see him, he was in a daze but just for a few seconds, he soon recovered and turned away in embarrassment.

Zhou Ke was a bit late to notice Ji Yan, when he finally spots him; he glared at him and threw him the middle finger.
  
Ji Yan extended his little pinky and pointed it at his private parts[1].

Zhou Ke’s face was livid and just as he was about to run to Ji Yan, Xia Jinian quickly dragged him away.
  
After waiting for a while, Ji Yan finally saw Lu Yichen. He was wearing glasses and carrying a black school bag. He didn’t know what he was thinking but his eyes looked very dull.
  
There was a girl beside him, she did not speak much and just accompanied him silently.
  
Ji Yan could not tell what their mood is like. He walked through the crowd of students to Lu Yichen and patted him on the shoulder.

Advertisements

Lu Yichen snapped out of his daze and after seeing Ji Yan, he exposed his two little tiger teeth, flashing a big smile: “Brother Yan, what are you doing here?”
  
The girl next to Lu Yichen looked at Ji Yan and then back at Lu Yichen and said with a laugh: “Hey, Your boyfriend is here so I will be going first.”
  
“Who is she?” Ji Yan looked at the retreating girl and asked: “How does she know about us?”
  
“She just guessed, we are both in the robot design team, I don’t know her so I am not sure how can she found out. I obviously never said anything to her” Lu Yichen expressed his doubts.
  
Ji Yan wasn’t very puzzled at this. Looking at Lu Yichen’s usual dazed appearance, he wondered if maybe he didn’t pay attention to being heard by the girl when he called him.
  
“Why are you wearing glasses?”
  
“I had a robot class just now and I forgot to take them off” Lu Yichen took off his glasses and put them in his bag.
  
On the way back, Ji Yan thought of Zhou Ke and Xia Jinian whom he had just seen and asked: “What happened to you and Zhou Ke? Aren’t you friends anymore?”
  
“No” Lu Yichen paused as if he was thinking about how to say what he was about to say: “I took the initiative to alienate Xia Jinian and Zhou Ke chose him between him and me.”
  
Ji Yan didn’t know what to say, no matter what, thay have been friends for many years.
  
“Actually, I am not surprised by this result. After all, they have been friends from the beginning.”
  
Ji Yan hugged Lu Yichen and said nothing. What can he say? He was selfish and wanted Lu Yichen to take the initiative to alienate Xia Jinian.

Advertisements

This really made him feel at ease and even a little bit happy.
  
In actuality, if Lu Yichen kept being friends with his first love, Ji Yan wouldn’t be able to accept it.

He can compromise on anything but this one.
  
The two did not take a taxi and chose a remote road to walk slowly.

The autumn wind was blowing on their faces and gave them an unspeakable comfort.
  
Lu Yichen silently pulled Ji Yan’s hands, the two held hands and in the afterglow of the sunset, their shadows were drawn together.


[1] I am not sure about this phrase “季彦向小拇指” but I guess Ji Yan was alluding to the fact that he had previously (chapter 2) kicked him in the groin region.
