Chapter 152: Exclusive


_______________________


Gu Yustatement caused Zhang Siyi to feel momentarily scared. When did he saysomething so horrible? Under Zhang Siyi’s strong pull, Gu Yu quickly put downthe pen. He didn\'t want the ink brush to stain something else. Zhang Siyiturned him around and facing Gu Yu, he hugged him in an embrace.


Feelingresentful, Gu Yu wanted to remain silent, however, as soon as he saw Zhang Siyiface, he couldn\'t help himself from speaking out: "I thought you wanted to playgames. So, go play!"


Zhang Siyistared at him: “How can I play when you are like this!?"


Coldly, GuYu replied: "I’m sorry to bother you."


Zhang Siyicould feel his anger rising. – I hate it when he gets jealous!


He didn’twant to continue arguing with Gu Yu and as a result, he simply stared at himinstead. Not knowing what to do next, Zhang Siyi held him tighter. In the end,Gu Yu relaxed. In a way, without arguing, his goal was achieved.


Slowly GuYu admitted: "You haven\'t played the violin for me in a long time."


ZhangSiyi\'s mouth twitched… He really was jealous!


It was toolate to savor the feeling as Gu Yu quickly pressed on: "Well, if you remember,you said you only play the violin for people that you like… It turns out again,that your \'like\' isn\'t serious."


Hearing theaccusations of seemingly trivial matters made Zhang Siyi heart stop.


Continuinghis explanation, Gu Yu said in a soft tone like a lost child: "It seems like Ihave misunderstood. I thought hearing you play the violin was exclusively mine."


Zhang Siyicompletely abandoned any resistance: “I was wrong, I was wrong, I waswrong!"


He didn’tthink that his off-handed remark would make Gu Yu think so much. Since he wasmost afraid of letting Gu Yu down, he could care less about the details andother things.


Shit! Sincehe said it, he has to adhere to his statement. In the future, he will only beable to play the violin for Gu Yu alone!


“I wasjust saying it!" Zhang Siyi held Gu Yu face in his hands and kissed him lightlyall over his face while apologizing: "I\'m sorry. I will only play for you inthe future. Don\'t be angry."


Gu Yu wasn\'tsure: “Only for me?"


Zhang Siyiheld up his right hand and in a hurry said: “Really! I swear! Just for you!"


Finally, GuYu\'s eyes softened. He raised his hands and caressed Zhang Siyi\'s face thengently kissed him back.


He isaddicted to taste of being loved by the person you love. Both sweet and sour,straight to the heart and deeply etched into your bones. This is love. Itsimply makes people act foolishly.


Laying downon the bed, the two continued to hold each other for a while. Gu Yu asked:“What game did you just play?”


Zhang Siyiquickly grabbed he iPad and returned to show Gu Yu: “It’s really fun. Youshould try it and see."


Zhang Siyistarted the simplest song to let Gu Yu get a feel for the game. The tempo isvery slow and the drop-down icon is also slow. Primary school students may findit more difficult, but Gu Yu does not.


Gu Yudoesn\'t seem to be interested in the game. As he pressed the required buttonshe asked: "Is this not the same as the typing game that was popular in theearly years when computers first came out?"


Zhang Siyi:“It’s not the same. That older game was to help you learn the letters of akeyboard. You need to listen to the beat and press keys in this one."


At the endof a piece of music, Gu Yu looked at his own achievements; only an A. Theaccuracy rate was less than 95%. Gu Yu immediately raised an eyebrow.


Although hedid not participate, he heard Gu Yao marveling at Zhang Siyi\'s ability toachieve an A+ every time. The current best results are indeed Zhang Siyi\'s.


Next tohim, Zhang Siyi gloated and said: “Ha-ha, I am still awesome!”


Gu Yu wasn\'thappy and requested another slightly more difficult song. This time since hemissed two, the score was even worse at a B. He took a look at the highestrecord; still Zhang Siyi’s.


Indisbelief, Gu Yu asked: “Do you always score an A+?"


Zhang Siyi:“Of course! Level three songs are so simple. I can play the first fivelevels at an A+"


Gu Yu:“…”


Zhang Si Yipicked a new track of the highest level he can play at present and personallydemonstrated it for Gu Yu to see.


Gu Yuwatched as his nimble fingers quickly press the correct keys on the screen withaccuracy and again, he reached an A+ with a score of 99.3%!


Gu Yu\'seyes widened in disbelief. There seems to be more to it.


Zhang Siyipushed the iPad to him and let him try the same level on his own. Since it wasGu Yu first attempt at playing and because of the difficulty, he couldn\'t keepup with the rhythm and missed many keys.


Next tohim, Zhang Siyi urged: "Move faster! Get with the beat! Ah, missed again."


The finalresult came out; not even a B……


Gu Yu wassilent. Zhang Siyi was silent.


Gu Yu\'ssilence is an accident. This game is not as simple as he thought. He wasdepressed at the gap between his own ability and Zhang Siyi\'s.


Zhang Siyiis silent. He can’t understand why Gu Yu can\'t get the simple rhythm and missedso much. He suspects that Gu Yu was deliberately losing!


With anewfound appreciation, Gu Yu seriously tried the game again. He also told ZhangSiyi to shut-up and stop distracting him. However, even with his determination,his score wasn\'t much better than before.


Looking atGu Yu’s puzzled expression of disbelief, Zhang Siyi tried to muffle a laugh,but instead a \'pfft\' slipped out.


With a darkexpression Gu Yu asked: "Tell me honestly. Have you ever played this game before?"


Zhang Siyihurriedly said: “Don’t talk nonsense. I\'m playing this game for the firsttime!"


Gu Yu wonderedand questioned: "But how can you play so well when you don\'t know how to play apiano?"


Zhang Siyididn\'t understand why Gu Yu was having a hard time. It was frustrating and hedidn\'t know how to explain how simply it was for him…. Suddenly, with a burstof wisdom Zhang Siyi spoke out: “I know!”


Gu Yulooked at him and flatly responded: “What do you know?”


Zhang Siyi rubbedhis chin: “This may be some kind of latent talent. Just like why academicsare so easy for you, this game is easy for me. You mentioned before in middleschool you watched others struggle to pass exams while you passed with flyingcolors without effort…… Do you think they’re mentally retarded?


Gu Yunarrowed his eyes: “So, you think I\'m mentally retarded now?"


Zhang Siyimouth twitched: “I don’t mean that!"


Watching GuYu, Zhang Siyi had a bad feeling… If Gu Yu can\'t beat his game, will he beangry at him?


“Hey!What are you doing? …Shit! You reallycan\'t play such a simple game…… Ah, ha-ha-ha-ha, don\'t tickle me, Ha-ha-ha….Uh, Hm, Mnm…."


……


Afterwashing her face, Gu Yao went back to her room to sleep. In the hallway, sheheard the familiar sound of music coming from her brother\'s room. It piqued herinterest, so she crept to their door and eavesdropped on them… Hey, isn’tthis the same game they were just playing?


Then sheheard Zhang Siyi giving out pointers: “Faster! Follow the rhythm.……"


Gu Yao jawdropped. The more she stood there listening, the more irritated she felt. Whowas the one that was opposed to them playing!? Yet now, he and Zhang Siyi werehiding in his bedroom playing! Too much!


When sheheard Zhang Siyi explain to her brother why he played badly, Gu Yao almostlaughed out loud! In the next moment, the music stopped and the sounds comingfrom the room seem a little strange…. Is he tickling Siyi? Hmm? It doesn’t seemright.…… Ah! She realized and reacted. Her face turned bright red and she feltembarrassed standing out in the hallway listening. Oh, my god, she’s still a baby. My brothersare out of line! (&////&)


The nextmorning, Zhang Siyi ate Gu Yu\'s breakfast and went out to the hotel to pick uphis father and mother. Since Gu Yao rarely visited, she wasn\'t in a hurry toleave. She was playing with Townhouse when she heard violin music in the directionof the sofa, she asked: “What are you listening to?” She curiously creptover and saw her brother watching a video on his mobile phone. The violin musicwas coming from the mobile phone.


Gu Yaocraned her neck and took a peek. The person on the video…. Isn\'t that ZhangSiyi? She also noticed the location of the video was this very living room. Shesaw Zhang Siyi focus on playing the music while wearing a white tux. Listeningto the song, she watched him play a classical piece in a fast-paced rock style.


From thebottom of her heart and eyes sparkling, Gu Yao blurted out: "Wow! So awesome!He is so handsome!”


Letting heronly see part of the video, Gu Yu suddenly put the phone away.


“Hey!Why did you stop it? I haven’t finished watchingit yet!” Seeing the excitement suddenly came to an abrupt end, shecomplained. Clutching her brother\'s shoulder, she tried to grab the phone awayfrom him.


Gu Yuglanced at her sideways: "What do you think? Good, right?"


Gu Yaodesperately nodded: “It\'s very good, but I haven’t finished listening toit yet!”


Gu Yu put his mobile phone away and stood up,unmoved: “Your brother-in-law said he would only play the violin for me tolisten to. Stop pestering him to play the violin for you. It was enough for youto see that short video clip."


Gu Yao: “…” Bastard brother! He had his wife shun the younger sister. She really was there just to buy food!


Leaning onher, Townhouse let out a gentle \'oowoo\' as if to tell her: "Sister, you stillhave me!"


When ZhangSiyi returned to the villa with his mother and father, Gu Yu drove them to themost famous spots in Haicheng. They also passed by Zhang Siyi\'s workplace andlearned a little about his company and job. At noon, they ate lunch at arestaurant outside. Soon, his parents needed to catch the train back toNingcheng. Now that they know their son is following such a good boss, theycould leave feeling at ease and assured about Zhang Siyi\'s future.


After ZhangSiyi’s parents left, Gu Yu drove his sister back to school and also gave her alot of fried fish for her to enjoy with her roommates.


After theweekend passed, it was time to work. Atthe company the next day, in an effort to unify the travelers, everyone thatwas going on the trip had a package waiting for them that included their travelvisa as well as a company t-shirt and travel cap. The company employees were ina festive mood.


However,the uniform dress code made the girl colleague a little bit depressed becausethe straight t-shirt was rather unattractive.


Someoneprotested: “The t-shirt is so ugly. Do I have to wear it?"


With a rare opportunity to travel out of the country, naturally one wants to take beautiful photos. How frustrating would it be if during the whole trip, only the company t-shirt was worn!?
