Perhaps it was because the corridor was dim and not very well lit, or perhaps it was just that Qin An couldn’t read people’s faces very well but, in any case, like a blind man it seemed he couldn’t see how taut and gloomy his brother’s face had become at all. Thus, Qin An continued to speak fearlessly: “You know, if Brother Shen ever changed his mind and asked for Ruan Tian to remarry him one day, judging by how much she seems to like him, she would probably agree right away, right?”
Qin Yu’s face turned even frostier and he swept a freezing gaze over at Qin An. Then, the edges of his mouth curled up into a sneer and he clearly enunciated the words, “**** off, she won’t be getting re-married”
Seemingly realizing that he had poked a hornet’s nest, Qin An hurriedly shut his mouth and followed behind Qin Yu with his head drooping.
When they arrived in front of Ruan Tian’s apartment door, Qin An glanced over at the adjacent door which he knew his brother owned, then said in a low voice: “Should we wake her up? It’s not like we can take her back to your unit to sleep.”
Qin Yu raised an eyebrow and asked softly, “Why not?”
Qin An was secretly shocked by his brother’s question. However, although he felt that doing this wasn’t very good, he also didn’t quite dare to open his mouth and spout any nonsense at this juncture.
But inside, he felt that when Ruan Tian woke up and found herself lying in his brother’s bed, she would definitely want to murder his brother directly.
“Big brother, this isn’t the way to chase a person.” Qin An muttered under his breath.
The next moment, there was the sound of the key entering the lock and a soft click as the door swung open.
Qin Yu easily pushed the door open with one hand and then changed into the in-door shoes that were next to the door. That done, he began to carry the person in his arms toward his bedroom.
The bedroom was dull and without any particular decorations to show that a person lived there. Qin Yu ignored that and brought Ruan Tian over and laid her down on the bed before helping to take her shoes off. He fell silent for a long moment, then simply covered her with the quilt and stood up to leave.
Qin Yu covered his mouth with his hand and coughed twice, then walked out of the bedroom.
He immediately walked over to the kitchen and poured himself a glass of warm water, then took a few sips in order to try to relieve the itching in his throat.
Qin An looked very nervous, and asked in a humble tone: “Then… where should I sleep?”
Qin Yu sent him a glare that seemed to say ‘You even need to ask this?’, then said, “You can sleep on the couch.”
Qin An nodded along like a chicken pecking rice. The couch? Alright, the couch it is!
In fact, even if Qin Yu invited him to take the remaining bed, he wouldn’t dare to accept!
Qin An took off his shoes and sat on the couch, then pulled a pillow into his arms, mustered up his courage, and finally managed to say the words he had been holding in his heart for a long time: “Big brother, you really can’t chase people like this.”
This kind of method… he didn’t even need to think to know that there was no way it would work or create any good feelings.
Qin Yu raised an eyebrow and assumed a listening posture.
Qin An gritted his teeth. Anyway, he had already started speaking, so he needed to say it all the way to the end: “You know, as an outsider, I had always thought that you two had a feud with each other. I suspect that Ruan Tian also always thought so as well.”
Qin An really couldn’t figure this point out. Had his brother already fallen in love with Ruan Tian, even back in high school when he was treating her like that?
Considering the battles those two had fought back then, most people would only believe it if you said they were dire enemies!
“You… why did you always bully her in high school?” Although Qin An was one year younger than his brother’s group, he was at least in the same school so he had more or less heard about their deeds.
For instance, Shen Shu had always ignored Ruan Tian and let the whole school watch her attempts to chase him like watching a joke.
Or for instance, his brother who had always spent all his time looking for trouble with her.
His health had also been poor back then and he would often be hospitalized, but after being discharged the thing he would always do was go find Ruan Tian.
Of course, not for anything else except to bully her.
Back then, Qin An had always just taken it for granted that Ruan Tian was a girl full of evil thoughts and that was what caused everyone to hate her, so he had never felt anything was off with all of this.
However, these days, Qin An had actually spent a fair amount of time with Ruan Tian because of their work.
Thanks to that he had learned that, besides her mouth being slightly poisonous, Ruan Tian didn’t seem to have any other bad traits.
After analyzing all this information, Qin An had finally discovered the problem. Wasn’t his brother clearly attempting to chase Ruan Tian in the style of a f*cking primary schooler? Showcasing the ‘I like you, so I will bully you’ kind of thinking that usually only a small child would?
