Chapter 165: Singing


Gu Yu wasconcerned that the topic of their conversation was too serious for Zhang Siyi tohandle, but seeing his cute expression, Gu Yu felt like he won the lottery. Amused,he reached over to rub the back of Zhang Siyi head.

Calling out "Hey"and feebly moving his head out of the way, Zhang Siyi smiled broadly. The feelingof being loved felt most euphoric. As joy overflowed from Zhang Siyi\'s heart,he couldn\'t stop himself from humming a tune.

At first, heonly hummed a bit of a song tentatively and his youthful voice seemed childish,but with growing confidence, he sung out loud. His clear voice, like a freshsummer breeze blowing ripples on a lake, flowed through the ancient city addingwarmth to the otherwise cold atmosphere.

Nearly elevenat night, they were the only two people on the road. Zhang Siyi\'s musical voiceechoed softly in the air, increasing the romance of the ancient capital.

Zhang Siyisang out: " Blue sky and rain… Smokerising, thousands of miles across the river…… and I am waiting for you……"

Listeningwith enthusiasm, Gu Yu asked: "What song is that? It\'s nice."

Zhang Siyismiled and said: “Blue and White Porcelain by Jay Chou." ** Haven\'t youheard of it?"

"I\'mfamiliar with it but I couldn\'t remember the name of the song." Gu Yu glanced athim and said: "You sing better than he does."

Zhang Siyi: “…”

Gu Yu\'sloving words makes Zhang Siyi heart soar!

Zhang Siyisuddenly remembered: “Hey, I haven\'t heard you sing.”

Gu Yu’s facialexpression changed slightly: “Hmm?”

Zhang Siyi:“When we were at KTV , you wouldn\'t sing. You told me you only sing to theperson you like. I almost forgot!"

Gu Yu:“…”

Zhang Siyisaid with excitement: “Come on, sing a song for me.”

Gu Yu:“Do you really want to hear me sing?”

Zhang Siyi:“Of course!” This is his privilege. He was stupid for only rememberingnow!

Gu Yucoughed lightly: “I can’t sing very well.”

Zhang Siyi sawthe flash of embarrassment across Gu Yu\'s eyes. Hey! Gu Yu also feels shy! He wrappedhis arms around Gu Yu\'s arm, pressed his body against his and pestered Gu Yuflirtatiously: "Come on, I want to hear you sing! Sing something for me!"

Gu Yu struggledmomentarily, but relented quickly: "Okay, Okay. I\'ll sing…."

With greatexpectations, Zhang Siyi gazed at Gu Yu with anticipation. –Gu Yu\'s voice isso wonderful; his singing must be great!

Clearing histhroat, Gu Yu \'uh-hummed\' then opened his mouth to sing: “The breath ofrain is the path home, on the road I chased your footsteps …”

Zhang Siyi:“…”

Gu Yu:“Underneath the temperature of yesterday, you hold me like a warm tree…”

Zhang Siyi:“………” Whoa, wait…. is this singing or reading lyrics? ( ̄_ ̄|||)

Gu Yu continuedto sing in a serious way: “Down the road, the rain is gone, I remember now,the wind won\'t blow the blessings…”

Listening toGu Yu, Zhang Siyi thought the song was probably \'Let’s Watch the Sunrise\' byJoi Chua.** Searching his memory, he was trying to remember the correct tune ofthe song. – Why won\'t Gu Yu sing the correct tune?! Am I mistaken?

Gu Yu:“There is a road after the rain. Like watching the sunrise that year, youtook me through the fog and told me to see the hope in the night…”

After listeningto Gu Yu for another two sentences, Zhang Siyi confirmed his guess. As Gu Yucontinued to \'sing\', he found it laborious to maintain his excited expression….He came to a realization. He should have known considering how poorly Gu Yuplays Era of Music.

……Gu Yuisn\'t perfect!

Listening tohim sing, Zhang Siyi tried hard not to laugh. Now hearing how poorly Gu Yusang, it ruined his fantasy and as a result, he regretted it just a little.

Regardless,Gu Yu was singing very seriously. Even if it wasn\'t the most musical, he wasvery engaged with Zhang Siyi. From time to time, Gu Yu gazed at Zhang Siyi veryaffectionately.

Finallywaiting for Gu Xiao to finish the song, Zhang Siyi took a deep breath and felt relieved.(=_=)

Gu Yu also breatheda sigh of relief. After a few minutes of silence, he spoke softly: " Well, Ifinished singing. Are you satisfied?"

Zhang Siyi:“Hmm…”

Gu Yu turnedhis head to the side to look at him and asked: "Was it bad?"

Zhang Siyiwas afraid that honesty would hurt Gu Yu\'s self-esteem so he shook his head \'no\'and then replied: "It was okay." Thinking about his singing, Zhang Siyi wantedto cry, but at least, the emotional input was very real!

Keenly awareof his ability, Gu Yu smiled at Zhang Siyi and said: “Don\'t lie. My sisterhas already informed me that a fish sings better than me." He reached out torub Zhang Siyi\'s head and said: "Just now, I lost to you."

Suddenly,Zhang Siyi burst into tears. Ah! True love! He held Gu Yu\'s hand and said: "Promiseme, will you only sing for me?" ….. When people listen, your image will turnto dust.

Gu Yu:“…”

Gu Yupinched his ear and smiled: “You don’t mind.”

The two ofthem strolled around the ancient city for an hour. They circled around andheaded towards the backyard garden of the inn. Before they reached the back gate,Zhang Siyi heard something…. It sounded like sobbing, coming from inside?

They pausedand looked at each other. It seems, the sound Zhang Siyi heard wasn\'t part ofhis imagination. Since it was a calm and clear night, there were no othersounds and as a result, the soft sound of sobs echoing in the garden could beheard very clearly.

….. Issomeone crying?

Looking at GuYu, Zhang Siyi pouted his mouth and stroked his cheek with his hand to expresstears.

Gu Yufrowned and signaled Zhang Siyi not to speak.

Zhang Siyifelt afraid suddenly. The two were in the ancient capital of Japan, where thelegend of ghosts and gods flourished. In darkness in the middle of the nightsomeone was crying at the inn. Doesn\'t this make a scary scenario?

Unconsciously,Zhang Siyi moved closer to Gu Yu, grabbed his clothes tightly and held onto him.

The two mencircumvented a small tree and glanced in the direction of the sound. They saw aperson standing at the tree and wiping tears. Gu Yu quickly pulled Zhang Siyiback.

Even thoughZhang Siyi didn\'t see who it was, knowing it wasn\'t a ghost was enough to puthim at ease.

Scrunchinghis brows, Gu Yu expression changed. All traces of joy were gone. He grabbedZhang Siyi\'s hand and wrote a word on his palm, \'Joe\'.

…… LuQiao? Zhang Siyi was very surprised and felt very puzzled. – Because of DuRui and Ji Feiyu? But everyone was very happy playing the game. How can he behere alone crying? Does Lu Qiao like Du Rui, too?

Before he hadmore strange ideas, he shook his head and got Gu Yu\'s attention. He silently mouthed:"What now?"

Behind thetree, Gu Yu continued to make a \'shh\' gesture at Zhang Siyi. He didn\'t want toact rashly. Since it was the only way to enter the inn, he wanted to spare Lu Qiaoany embarrassment.

Not a momenthad passed when Lu Qiao\'s voice could be heard talking to himself ——

“Treehole! Tree hole! I really can’t hold it in anymore! I am too uncomfortable…No one cares what I think and no one cares that I am unhappy…”

His shakingvoice was intermittently interrupted by his own helpless sobs. Witnessing his pitifulstate, Zhang Siyi felt empathic. – What is he so sad about?

As Lu Qiao crunched beside the tree, tears flowed down his face. In distress he blurted out: "No one in the whole company knows about their relationship, but I know it\'s true! They are gay……"
