After Transmigration, The Male Lead and I had a HE - Chapter 80
Haize watched as the two people dawdled and chirped at one another.
After a long time, they still couldn’t resolve the issue. It was estimated that if they continued to grind at each other like this, it would be the middle of the night soon.
As a result, Haize called over the rest of the group to use up the Boss’ energy before they were finally able to separate Gao Jing and Su Yuanzhou.
Gao Jing returned home in silence while Su Yuanzhou stayed at the booth. He held onto the alcohol bottle as he chugged the drink down. The more he drank, the gloomier he got.
His willpower allowed him to still have a trace of clear-headedness remaining as he started to ponder about the way he talked just now, and whether it was excessive or not. Even he himself didn’t dare to admit that he unexpectedly felt a trace of guilt and regret in his heart.
Towards both Su Qiuge and Gao Jing.
He shook his head to get rid of the messy thoughts before gazing at the nightclub’s complex and confusing lights, his entire body slumped on the soft leather of the booth.
He watched the happily laughing men and women on the dance floor, and the longer he looked at them, the more dazzling their loud laughter and close intimacy became.
It made him all the more aware of how alone he was.
He squeezed the bottle tightly as he resisted the urge to fling it across the ground. He drank another large mouthful.
A sharp and bitter taste permeated the surface of his tongue. Su Yuanzhou glanced at the emptiness beside him and suddenly felt that there was a feeling of suffocation spreading from the tip of his heart.
The amount he drank couldn’t be measured and when he was being sent home by Haize and the others, he was already fading out of consciousness.
After Haize and the others sent him back to his neighborhood, they were still a little worried. They wanted to personally send him back to his apartment, but he frowned and shook them off. He staggered his way into the elevator before arriving at his door. He went inside and took off his shoes before stumbling into the hallway.
It was already the middle of the night and the nightscape of the city could be seen through the large floor-to-ceiling window in the living room of the apartment.
The city at night was dreadfully quiet, and the flow of traffic on the highways carried bright neon lights as it moved.
This apartment was considered to be his own, and he usually found it quite peaceful as there was no one to disturb him. But at this moment, it only felt lonely and desolate.
As he slowly entered, Gao Jing’s screams echoed in his mind at this moment for some reason.
“Su Yuanzhou, let’s see how many people end up staying by your side!”
His mind was incredibly dizzy as if gods and demons were at work. He frowned as he remembered back to the days when Yang Xue and Su Jingkun would quarrel.
When he was a child, he seemed to have been hailed by others as intelligent and eager to study. He even started elementary school early, but later, due to his constant involvement in fights, he had to repeat a year, which was how he ended up in the same year as Su Qiuge.
During that period of time, Yang Xue and Su Jingkun quarreled everyday over trivial matters. Su Qiuge was enrolled in a kindergarten with a daycare-like system at the time, so she only knew how to chase after others and play everyday, with no clue of what was happening at home.
It seemed as if, from the moment he became old enough to remember things, all that he heard and saw were the dirty and dark side of his family. He went from being anxious and worried that the family would fall apart, to becoming desensitized and hoping that everything would end faster.
Later, when they decided to separate, Yang Xue had expressively glanced at him once before she led away the young and obedient Su Qiuge without looking back.
Su Yuanzhou remembered that single glance for more than ten years of his life. It even appeared in all his nightmares causing him to wake up in cold sweat.
What Yang Xue wanted was a clever and obedient child who will follow her orders, a rebellious and disobedient child like him will only make her lose face.
What Yang Xue wanted was Su Qiuge.
And unknowingly, he had gradually transferred the loathing and disgust he felt towards Yang Xue onto Su Qiuge as well.
