Chapter 28: Could you two please leave me alone?
Translator: DragonRider
There was no private room in this restaurant so Zhou Li specially asked for a booth when making the reservation.

Upon entering, Rong Yi gave Zhou Li a call so as to make sure where the seat was. Zhou was all smiles when he stood up from the sofa and waved to him from afar. When Rong Yi and Chen Keyao approached, his expression somehow turned slightly stiff.

After Rong Yi sat down, Zhou immediately leaned over and whispered, “What’s wrong with you guys?”

“Nothing,” Rong Yi tried to look normal. “Where’s Liu Yuan? Isn’t he supposed to have arrived long ago?”

Zhou Li obviously didn’t buy it. With knitted brows, he looked at Rong Yi then Chen Keyao but in the end he gave up the idea to press for an answer.

“He went to the toilet,” said Zhou Li as he pointed at the sign. “Quite a long while ago.”

Chen Keyao then immediately gave Liu a call who, in less than a minute, came back with a much relived look. He greeted the two who had just arrived as he took his seat, “Glad you finally came.”

However, when he looked up and saw Zhou Li sitting opposite to him, he immediately looked away, his expression getting somewhat awkward, which led Rong Yi to the conclusion that this guy must have excused himself deliberately to avoid being alone with Zhou Li.


Rong Yi and Chen Keyao involuntarily looked at each other, planning to exchange more information through the eye contact when they suddenly realized that they were still in a quarrel and simultaneously looked away.

In the booth Zhou Li sat on one side with Rong Yi while Chen Keyao and Liu Yuan the other side. Zhou Li was the only one being normal while the rest three all looked awkward, creating such a weird atmosphere around them. Zhou Li, overwhelmed by the awkwardness, pushed the menu to the center of the table and spoke in a voice louder than ever, “Don’t stand on ceremony. Order whatever you like.”

Liu Yuan just cast a glance at him, not uttering a word.

Rong Yi answered subconsciously, “I’m not picky on food. You do it.”

Chen Keyao nodded as soon as Rong Yi finished, “Same here.”

“You sure? You are such a picky eater,” Rong Yi retorted right in his face. “You wouldn’t even try a bite if the dish is not to your liking no matter how much time I’ve spent on cooking it.”

Chen Keyao, embarrassed and stiff, defended in a weak voice, “I’m not…”

Rong Yi actually regretted immediately after he blurted out the complaints. After all, there were other people present, and his behavior seemed really childish.


To ease the growing tension at the table, he offered to take the menu: “You’re all way too polite, then I’ll order the dishes.”

He had eaten alone with both Liu Yuan and Zhou Li, and had a rather profound understanding of Chen Keyao’s taste after this period of time. He made the order while asking the other three about their tastes, and then, ushered in the most awkward and difficult stage of this dinning together.

There was nothing one could do while waiting for the dishes, and someone had to say something to break the embarrassment.

Zhou Li, looking devastated, bravely cleared his throat and then began to speak: “I am really sorry for the trouble I caused you two days ago. This meal is just a token of my kindness, and if I can be of any assistance in the future, just ask.” He rubbed his hands under the table as he spoke, obviously very nervous.

Rong Yi was just about to echo, Chen Keyao sitting in the opposite spoke first: “You exaggerated it. It’s such a trivial matter that I didn’t mind it at all. So just let it pass.”

Rong Yi fought really hard to swallow back his intention to retort.

Zhou Li, who had listened to the whole story about Chen Keyao’s amazing reaction to the snake, hesitated before he smiled, “The I’ll save the unnecessary politeness. If there is anything you need me, just let me know.”

Chen Keyao waved his hand, giving an air of extreme generosity, “No problem.”

“Then…” Zhou Li turned to look at Liu Yuan who had stayed mute all the while, “Your hamster…I really don’t know how to make it up to you…”


Before Liu Yuan got the chance to say anything, Chen Keyao, completely at loss, asked, “Hamster? You mean Lightning? What happened to it?”

“I’m too busy to take care of Lightning so I’ve sent it to one of my friends.” As he spoke, the waiter came over with the dishes they had ordered, so he deliberately raised his voice, “Don’t talk about it now, meal first!”

Zhou Li pursed his lips, looking quite bothered, but didn’t say anything.

Though Rong Yi had stayed mute all the while, his brain was quite busy at the moment.

Liu Yuan was weird. At first, seeing him avoid Zhou Li, Rong Yi worried that he was still mourning for the death of his beloved hamster. But then he said those words, clearly not a sign of holding any grudge.

He could have refused to come if he felt intellectually that it wasn’t all Zhou Li’s but he just couldn’t let it pass emotionally. However, when Chen Keyao called him yesterday to invite him for the meal, the guy merely hesitated a second before agreeing to come.

So, what the hell was on his mind?

Rong Yi was puzzled, and after quite a while of hesitation and struggle, he decided to put their past bickering aside for the moment and discuss the matter with the only suitable person present. Pity that the dishes he ordered were too much to Chen Keyao’s taste that this Alpha buried himself wholeheartedly to the meal without even noticing his frequent winks. Eyes exhausted without any feedback, Rong Yi kicked the other lightly under the table.

Chen Keyao spit out a bone, unaffected, “All other dishes are great, except this sweet-and-sour rib.”

Rong Yi at the moment had no idea what this guy was getting at. Trying to compliment or anger him?


Seeing this guy still devoted to the dishes, Rong Yi got pissed off. So he kicked again, but harder this time. Yet Chen Keyao still wasn’t a bit affected.

Right as he was getting confused, there came a glance from the side.

Rong Yi, at a loss turned his heard, only to find Liu Yuan was only wearing a confused look.

“What are you kicking me for?” asked Liu Yuan.

“…”

Rong Yi froze.

Zhou Li and Chen Keyao all turned to look at him. Dead silence at the table.

Rong Yi drew his feet back under the sofa, “I…got a cramp in the leg.”


That was a lame explanation. Though no one tried to doubt it, they all looked a bit subtle.

Rong Yi, helplessly, covered his forehead. Then he felt his phone vibrate.

A WeChat message from the guy sitting opposite him.

‘You really take a fancy to him?”

What the hell was he thinking?!

Just as he was rummaging words to retort, his phone vibrated again, still Chen Keyao’s message: ‘Friendly reminder: Liu Yuan likes the type that just sits next to you.”

Rong Yi looked up and threw Chen Keyao a stare before he typed: ‘Is it the experience you got after your failed attempt to court him?’ He immediately raised his head and as expected, Chen Keyao who was reading the message was extremely surprised.

The two looked at each for a while before Chen Keyao lowered his head to type in a frantic manner: ‘What nonsense are you talking about?’

‘Didn’t you chase two of your roommates back in college?’

He looked up again, only to find that Chen Keyao looked both surprised and confused.

Rong Yi also felt puzzled by his look, starting to wonder secretly, “So Liu Yuan was talking nonsense? This can’t be. Though he is a bigmouth, he is not someone who would start a rumor about others.”

As he wondered, Chen Keyao’s message came: ‘You got be kidding me! How long have I known him? If I took a fancy to him, you’d never have the chance to flirt with your stupid kicks!’

Rong Yi thumped his phone to the table, looked up and said, “Hey, Liu Yuan, the guy next to you said he wants to court you.”

“Hey!” Chen Keyao was panicked.

And Liu Yuan who was suddenly dragged into the quarrel choked, nearly coughing his heart out.

Zhou Li turned his gaze to the three one by one and finally rested his eyes on Liu Yuan, asking in a gentle voice, “You okay?”

“I…I meant to say…” Chen Keyao tried to explain yet failed to find the proper words. Then he just gave that up and threw his arm around Liu Yuan shoulder, looking at Rong Yi, “Yes, that’s right. So are you going to compete with me or what? What do you say, Zhou?”

“Me?” Zhou Li was completely at loss, who first looked at Rong Yi then stuttered, “I…I don’t mind. You do…as you want?”

Liu Yuan finally stopped coughing and said with much difficulty, “Could you two please leave me alone? I’m not interested in Alpha-Alpha relationship.”

Chen Keyao wasn’t a bit affected by that while Rong Yi was vexed, “Am I an Alpha to you?”

“You…I…er…” Liu Yuan shrank his neck. “Your omega feature is a bit shy…just not too obvious…”

“Hahahahaha…” Chen Keyao spread his palms. “You see…you don’t even stand a chance.”

Rong Yi was speechless, “Do you?”

Zhou Li who was so slow in showing his surprise asked, “Do you guys mean it?”

Liu Yuan was frightened to curl himself into the corner of the sofa, “Did I do something wrong today?”

“Honey,” Chen Keyao threw his arms around Liu. “Somebody just envies us and got so jealous. Don’t take it seriously.” As he spoke, he kept winking at Liu Yuan. Pity that Liu Yuan, panic-stricken, didn’t even give a damn to that and kept looking at Zhou Li.

Zhou Li had been quite upset for the embarrassing meal. But now he was high spirited and even felt thrilled to enjoy such a great show.

Rong Yi, however, was completely at loss.

Why would it develop in such a weird way? So what should he do now? He was now caught in a dilemma as to whether he should keep talking back and playing jealousy.

His sharp ears even caught Chen Keyao whispering to Liu Yuan, something like ‘Why can’t you just help me put on a play?’ ‘Silence’ ‘It doesn’t matter’. And Liu Yuan was struggling, wailing as he fought back, “It matters! It does.”

So Rong Yi decided to let it go. Just let this Alpha enjoy his show.

Alphas could be so terrifyingly childish. Winning an argument with such a person would only make he himself look stupid, so why bother?

The author has something to say:

Liu Yuan: Sitting next to me is an Alpha who likes Alpha. Opposite me is two Omegas. The alpha once took a fancy to me. And one of the two Omegas also courted me, while the other is the one I had planned to chase. So why is the sexual orientation of those who have emotional entanglements with me all so weird? So get out of my, you gays!
