By this time, the 4D movie was almost over. And sure enough, when Qian Wei dragged Lu Xun to the doors of the 4D cinema, she saw the last wave of moviegoers coming out one after another. Qian Wei had a sharp eye, and she instantly spotted the tall Qian Chuan in the crowd. He was using his body to separate Mo Zixin from the crowd like a gentleman, clearly protecting Mo Zixin.
Qian Wei dragged Lu Xun behind her and patted Qian Chuan on his shoulder.
“I finally caught up with you. After this, let’s do some things together.”
Qian Chuan frowned and was obviously very unhappy. But his displeasure disappeared after seeing the clothes Qian Wei and Lu Xun were wearing.
“Hahaha, it’s the Lord and his treacherous minister, hahaha, Qian Wei, this look is perfect for you.”
Mo Zixin glanced at Lu Xun and Qian Wei, but she didn’t seem to want to laugh. Instead, she looked like she wanted to say something but was holding back. Qian Wei felt like she looked like she might be in a bad mood.
Qian Wei hastened to explain: “We are not purposefully matching each other, it’s just that this was the only style the store was selling.” She winked at Lu Xun. “At the store I noticed that I had also vomited on myself so I needed to change my shirt.”
While she was desperately trying to salvage the situation, Lu Xun seemed to think of something and spoke: “Eh, but you didn’t throw up on yourself at all. You only threw up on me.”
“…” Lu Xun, are you trying to dismantle the whole city on the spot? Don’t you see that I am helping you by explaining things to Mo Zixin? Do you know what a white lie is?
When Lu Xun finished speaking, the way Mo Zixin looked at Qian Wei changed a little, as if she thought Qian Wei was trying to make up an excuse about why she and Lu Xun were dressed like a couple. Qian Wei choked. She really didn’t know how to explain it. The heavens know, she was just trying to help Lu Xun clarify things so that Mo Zixin wouldn’t think too much. But now the words of Lu Xun, this small ancestor, made her seem like a liar.
“Qian Wei!” As if the current excitement was not enough, suddenly Liu Shiyun’s voice appeared in the mix. It turned out that she had also just watched a 4D movie, but because she did not know about the vomiting episode, her reaction to Qian Wei and Lu Xun’s clothes was even more exaggerated, “Shit. Where have you been? Why are you wearing different clothes? Is this the legendary couple’s outfit? Are contemporary college students all so unscrupulous nowadays? Not shy at all? Totally disregarding the feelings of all us onlookers?” She stared at Qian Wei for a moment. “And what kind of strange taste is this?”
Qian Wei hastened to explain things again. Although Liu Shiyun’s expression was still a little skeptical, she finally seemed to let it go.
“Which attraction are you going to next? Qian Chuan, didn’t you say you had a detailed strategy. Where are you going?”
To Liu Shiyun’s question, Qian Chuan obviously did not want to answer. He was eager to get rid of this group of lightbulbs so he could concentrate on his goddess. But Mo Zixin answered and generously told everyone their plans.
“Qian Chuan just told me that we would be going to the haunted house next.” Mo Zixin smiled and glanced at Lu Xun. “Why don’t we all go together? I heard that most of the events inside this haunted house are recreations from several well-known horror movies. I heard that the staff all play ghosts, which seems especially scary, but it shouldn’t be too scary with such a large group of people. “
Qian Wei saw a golden opportunity: “Let’s go together, let’s all go together.”
What a joke. A haunted house was such a gloomy and terrible place that it was very suitable for the boys’ to show off their masculine charm. Could Qian Wei not know what Qian Chuan was planning? If it were just him and Mo Zixin, as soon as they entered the haunted house, Mo Zixin would definitely feel afraid, and then she would have no choice but to rely on Qian Chuan. Once a girl was afraid, don’t even mention holding hands, it was possible they might even rush into a boy’s arms or any sort of ambiguous thing. And girls enjoyed the feeling of being protected, so they might develop good feelings for a boy who protected them.
“Qian Wei, aren’t you night blind and afraid of ghosts?! What haunted house have you ever gone to?” Seeing that his plan was about to fail, Qian Chuan could not help shouting, “I won’t be scared by the haunted house later but I might get scared to death by your ghostly screams!”
Qian Wei acted strong and said, “Didn’t you say that I’m very manly? Since I am so masculine that means I am not afraid of ghosts. And isn’t it just perfect that I am night blind? That way in the dark I won’t be able see any ghosts clearly.”
“It’s alright. I’ll walk with Qian Wei. I can watch any horror movie from anywhere in the world without even flinching.” Liu Shiyun came up and wrapped her arms around Qian Wei’s neck and said, “So don’t just stand here, let’s go. The faster we get there the less we’ll have to wait in line.”
Lu Xun was noncommittal but he did not object to the proposal of going to the haunted house.
With that, things were set. Even if Qian Chuan was unwilling, he could only let these three lightbulbs join.
The group of people smoothly got in line to enter the haunted house. But because it was a popular attraction the haunted house was naturally very crowded. Eventually, they got in and after walking through a corridor they entered a pitch-black area that was there to increase the atmosphere of terror. Because of her night blindness, Qian Wei’s vision was not very clear any time the light was dim, and sometimes she couldn’t see things at all in the dark, she would only be able to see a vague outline. Therefore, she was actually very afraid of the dark because she always felt like there might be something lurking in the darkness. But right now, she couldn’t care about her fear. She clenched her teeth, tried to squeeze herself through the crowd behind Qian Chuan in an effort to separate Mo Zixin from him. Through the occasional flashes of ‘ghostly fire’ she would look back and see that Lu Xun was following them leisurely with Liu Shiyun by his side.
“Ah! Ah! Ahhhhhhhhh!”
She didn’t know what kind of horrific thing was coming up ahead, but as Qian Wei approached, she could hear loud screaming coming from inside and her heart froze.
Some of the tourists who had entered ahead of her could not stand it and they were rushing backward through the attraction. The sudden surge of fleeing people separated Qian Wei from the others. It was so dark that she could not see anything clearly. At some point, Liu Shiyun had been swept away by the crowd and she was no longer by Qian Wei’s side. Qian Wei was very afraid. She could only move towards the last spot where she had seen Qian Chuan in an effort to find him. Fortunately, she managed to find Qian Chuan quickly in the darkness. Although she could not see his face clearly, it was a tall man so she felt sure it was Qian Chuan and Qian Wei clung to his arm desperately.
“I’m scared!” She said.
She didn’t feel embarrassed about going to her brother for help at all. Qian Wei shivered and hid behind Qian Chuan’s back: “Hey, the next attraction seems to be very horrific. You go ahead and I’ll follow you with my eyes closed. I really don’t want to look.” With that said she pushed Qian Chuan’s back.
With the crowd jostling them around combined with Qian Wei’s deliberate sabotage, Qian Chuan and Mo Zixin were easily separated. Mo Zixin had disappeared somewhere in the darkness and, knowing Qian Chuan, he probably had an itch in his heart because Mo Zixin was missing. So Qian Wei quickly wrapped her arms around his waist and hid behind him. She felt Qian Chuan’s body stiffen as Qian Wei’s hand fluttered over the thin muscles and lines of his waist.
Qian Wei pinched and fondled at Qian Chuan’s waist: “Wow. You must have been working out recently. The outline of your muscles feel just like the kind I saw on a male idol on the internet, including the ‘thousand thrusts’ every night.” Qian Wei smiled and said, “But have you ever heard the saying that when men do waist training, women can’t stand it, and when women do waist training, men can’t stand it. But when men and women do waist training, beds can’t stand it.”
Although Qian Wei and Qian Chuan liked to bicker and squabble all the time, they actually had a very good relationship and would say all kinds of jokes to each other.
Qian Wei used her hand to touch again. She was impressed. Even though Qian Chuan did not especially work on his body lines when working out, he had very obvious abs and abdominal muscles. But just when Qian Wei was about to touch the legendary mermaid line, Qian Chuan’s hand suddenly caught hers and tossed it away impolitely.
Qian Wei lips curled into a smile and she said, “Sure enough, it seems spring has come to your heart, ah~, you’re so enthusiastic about self-improvement recently. Come on, don’t let me bother you. Just hurry up and lead the way. This place is too spooky, let’s get out of here. ” Qian Wei patted Qian Chuan’s ass as she spoke. And she noticed that this guy had really been putting in some work recently, his butt was firm and tight, and from the feel of it his hip shape was already the very sexy and cocky type. Qian Wei thought to herself, with the pants that Qian Chuan always wore it was hard to tell how in shape he really was. She felt like she had clear memories of his ass being flat like a plain.
Unfortunately, even though she hid behind Qian Chuan while walking into the next part of the haunted house, it was futile. Qian Wei was still repeatedly startled by the ‘ghostly fire’ effects that would cast strange lights and deep shadows throughout the haunted house. There were also strange and bloody smells that wafted by from time to time. Qian Wei, who was already in a state of high tension, could feel herself being stretched to her limits by the staff members who kept quietly appearing all around her and with their strange and ghostly costumes. Eventually, she couldn’t take it anymore and opened her mouth to scream. What made things worse was that at the same moment, many other girls also reacted and began to scream and flee as if they were being chased by ghosts. In the panic, Qian Wei was separated from Qian Chuan by the crowd.
Qian Chuan had been right, she always had been afraid of ghosts and horrors ever since she was a child. And even after she grew up she still didn’t even dare to watch horror movies.
Because Qian Wei’s reaction was so exaggerated Qian Chuan seemed to finally remember the love between brothers and sisters. While Qian Wei was trembling with fear, suddenly a hand reached out and clasped Qian Wei’s hand in the darkness. When Qian Wei looked up she could vaguely make out Qian Chuan’s silhouette in the crowd. He was very tall and easy to see even in the dark. Although she could not see his face clearly, she still felt a warm illusion that he was like a lighthouse in a storm. Qian Wei gripped Qian Chuan’s hand tightly. His hand was broad and warm. By holding it like this, Qian Wei began to feel at ease. This was also the first time in her adult life that Qian Wei had held hands with Qian Chuan like this. It seemed that before she noticed it her brother had grown up. His bones were distinct and his fingers were long, he obviously had the hand of a grown man.
The tiny bit of conscience left in Qian Wei’s heart began to stir. For the sake of her own future, was it really okay to sell out Qian Chuan and act as Lu Xun’s lackey? …she quickly pushed that thought down. Even if she helped Qian Chuan, Mo Zixin would still eventually break up with him anyway. But Qian Wei still noted down in her heart that she had to be nicer to Qian Chuan in the future. When they got back to school, she should try to introduce some other girls to Qian Chuan to divert his attention.
At least Lu Xun should be with Mo Zixin right now, right? Presumably, by now the atmosphere between those two should be very good. Maybe by the time they get out of the haunted house, it would already be too late for Qian Chuan to come between them.
Qian Wei was distracted by all of her thoughts until she heard some sharper and more tragic screams coming from up ahead. She was afraid that what was coming up would be extremely terrible. But just when she was subconsciously preparing to run away, a hand gently covered her eyes from behind. Qian Wei immediately could not see the horrible haunted house anymore and she blinked subconsciously. Most of her senses were cut off, all she could feel was the fluttering touch of her eyelashes gently brushing against that hand. As if from a great distance she could hear the screams of other girls and the spooky rattling of the haunted house, but only this clean and slender hand was really left in Qian Wei’s world. Qian Wei suddenly felt very safe. Even though she knew it was just Qian Chuan, Qian Wei couldn’t help it and her heart began to beat a little faster. She was really too naive, this trick used to pick up girls was actually invincible, wasn’t it? Qian Chuan, this son of a bitch, she really didn’t expect to find out that he had so many tricks up his sleeves. If she wasn’t secretly helping Lu Xun she really had no confidence that Lu Xun could match Qian Chuan’s skills at all.
It was very dark, the atmosphere was frightening, the environment was filled with strange and terrifying noises, and on all sides the crowd pressed in on them. But with the hand over her eyes, it all felt strangely distant from her. Like this, Qian Wei was dragged all the way through the different set-pieces in the haunted house, one after another. She tightly held the dry and warm hand with her own and felt very at ease.
Qian Wei was very grateful to Qian Chuan this time, so she decided to return his goodwill. She began to try to appeal to Qian Chuan: “I don’t support you chasing Mo Zixin but you shouldn’t think that I’m intentionally wronging you. We’re related by blood after all. Would I really abandon you to curry favor with Lu Xun? It’s just that I need to help Lu Xun. The reason why is very difficult to explain right now, but trust me when I say that I would never hurt you. Also, you should know that Lu Xun will never be as good as you are in my heart. In my eyes, you are much better than Lu Xun. You are automatically hundreds of times better than Lu Xun just by being approachable. Compared to a noble ice prince who always acts as if everyone else is just dust in his eyes, aren’t you much better? ‘Just depending on a beautiful face to act indifferent to others’, I wonder if Lu Xun has ever heard that sentence? Today he acts cold and indifferent but who knows if he will still be able to keep it up tomorrow…”
For some reason, the usually talkative Qian Chuan was silent this entire time. But that did not affect Qian Wei’s enthusiasm. While wrapped up in this darkness, jabbering about irrelevant topics was an excellent way to reduce fear.
“In fact, for the most part, I don’t understand why so many people are infatuated with Lu Xun’s face. Even though he could be said to be peerlessly handsome, his face is always cold like ice all year round. And his skin is so white it really makes people suspect that he has kidney deficiency already despite his young age…”
Qian Wei had been tortured by Lu Xun while working for him in her previous life, so the new and old grudges all escaped her mouth in a torrent.
Unconsciously, her mouth kept spitting complaints about Lu Xun the whole way until the two of them reached the exit of the haunted house. The lights slowly got brighter and the gloomy atmosphere was swept away. Qian Wei suddenly gasped after she raised her head. She was more frightened now than she had been inside the haunted house.
That was because, standing in front of her, was not Qian Chuan at all. Instead, it was Lu Xun, who had an unusually ugly expression on his extremely handsome face.
tl note: I’m sure we all saw that one coming. I dunno, I was still amused though XD
