Chapter 016 Close
Seeing Zhuang Jingchun’s somewhat mysterious expression, Xu Xizhou became curious. He decisively left Wang Miao, who was still chattering and followed Zhuang Jingchun.
Zhuang Jingchun drove him to the top of the mountain.
The surroundings were quiet and silent, and the wind at the top of the mountain carried an unexpected chill. Xu Xizhou wrapped his down jacket tightly, and when he got out of the car, he saw a translucent building like an eggshell on the grass.
“What is this?”
“See for yourself.”
Xu Xizhou firmly opened the wooden door of the eggshell with a questioning look on his face. He got into it, only to find that the interior was a whole different world. A large white air-cushioned bed was spread on moisture-proof carpet, and there was an oak wardrobe next to the bed, with a telescope placed on it. The curved glass roof stretched out in front of him, and he could clearly see the night sky flickering with cold stars.
Xu Xizhou walked up to the telescope, adjusted the angle before looking through it, and suddenly exclaimed.
“It’s too clear, you can even see the constellation Sagittarius. Where did you get it?”
“I checked some guides.” Zhuang Jingchun said in a flat tone.
Xu Xizhou looked a little surprised when he saw him take off his coat and hang it in the cupboard, and then remove the blankets and bedding from it.
“Are we… staying here tonight?”
“Do you want to go back to the hotel and continue to listen to the voices next door?”
Xu Xizhou shook his head hastily. This eggshell cottage was isolated from the world. During the night, he could enjoy the night sky, which was much more interesting than staying in a hotel.
Xu Xizhou looked at the stars through the telescope for a while and then yawned. Zhuang Jingchun was sitting at the bedside reading a book. Seeing that Xu Xizhou hadn’t taken off his clothes, Zhuang Jingchun got into bed directly and couldn’t help but tap him on the head.
“There is no heating here, it will be cold at night. Take off your clothes and cover them up.”
Xu Xizhou hummed in a daze, took off his sweater and coat, and threw them on the quilt. There was some distance between the two, but he probably was afraid of the cold, so he unconsciously moved to where Zhuang Jingchun was sitting.
Zhuang Jingchun turned a page of the book, and when he lowered his head, he saw Xu Xizhou’s head leaning against his leg. The boy’s black hair, which had been blow-dried not long ago, was curled up in a mess, his thick eyelashes were closed tightly, and he snuggled up to him like a puppy attached to its owner.
Zhuang Jingchun didn’t know how he came up with this strange metaphor. The irritability in his emotions had inexplicably calmed down, and his chest was filled with a tenderness he hadn’t realized before.
Everything was quiet, even the whistling wind had stopped. It seemed that they were the only ones left in the whole world, and everything became distant and blurred.
Xu Xizhou had a rare restful night’s sleep. The morning sun shone in and fell on his eyes, bringing warmth. He turned over and slowly opened his eyes, and what came into view was a deep and handsome face.
The warm golden morning light dyed the man’s hair almost golden. Under the sun, his slender eyelashes were distinct, with curling arcs.
Xu Xizhou felt itchy when he saw it, so he couldn’t help but stretch out his hand and poke his eyelashes. The next second, the man frowned unconsciously, and he quickly retracted his mischievous hand and stared at him cautiously.
“What time is it?” Zhuang Jingchun obviously slept well this time, his voice laced with delight and laziness.
“Seven thirty.” Xu Xizhou sat up, grabbed a sweater, and put it on. When he was finished, he noticed that Zhuang Jingchun had a strange look on his face.
“Why do you look at me like that? Could it be that I’m too handsome today?” Xu Xizhou said triumphantly.
Zhuang Jingchun hesitated to speak.
“What you are wearing…is my sweater.”
Xu Xizhou looked down and saw that the black sweater was embroidered with complicated patterns on the chest. It really belonged to Zhuang Jingchun. He suddenly became embarrassed, and hurriedly grabbed the hem, trying to pull off the sweater in a hurry. However, as a result of his impatience, he took off his T-shirt along with the sweater.
When his skin came into contact with the cold air, he shivered unconsciously.
Zhuang Jingchun’s gaze swept across his naked upper body, and his white face suddenly turned crimson. He quickly threw Xu Xizhou’s sweater at him.
“Put it on quickly, don’t catch a cold.”
He turned his face away and looked at the rising sun outside the window, but the thin and powerful waistline still seemed to be lingering in front of him.
After returning from the forest park, Wang Miao was brooding about being left behind by Xu Xizhou in the hot spring pool that night. He was so angry that he ignored Xu Xizhou for several days.
Xu Xizhou didn’t have time to coax him either. He was busy taking the domestic driver’s license test. He was dizzy doing questions every day, but it was also very effective. He got a full score on the first test.
After finishing the first test in the morning, he went straight to the road to practice for the second test in the afternoon. The instructor was a middle-aged man dressed like an insurance salesman who never leaves his thermos. He has a very loud voice, and his voice can be heard from a distance.
The coach sat in the co-pilot seat and sipped the chrysanthemum tea in the thermos. He looked somewhat surprised at Xu Xizhou’s movement of shifting gears.
“You’re very proficient. Have you practiced at home?”
Xu Xizhou drove slowly along the S road, with a smile on his lips, “I’m a professional racer.”
The thermos in the coach’s hand shook, and he stared at him suspiciously.
“Really? How can there be a racer who drives so slowly?”
Xu Xizhou shrugged, “I’m not in a hurry. Why should I drive so fast?”
The coach still didn’t believe it, “Young man, you’re just boasting. See the S line you are taking, it is too close to the side. You almost stepped on the line. It is very dangerous. If a professional racer is like you, then I can be a racer.”
Xu Xizhou nodded, “You are right.”
He practiced for two days in a calm and unhurried manner and soon passed the second test.
On the third day, he started to practice the third test, and it was still the coach holding the thermos who taught him.
They practiced driving on a remote country road. The coach was very reassured of him, he slept in the car most of the time. Xu Xizhou practiced a few laps and was about to leave when he finished his lessons when suddenly, a police siren sounded from behind.
The coach jerked awake from his seat. His first reaction was to think that Xu Xizhou had crashed, but he sat in the car and nothing happened.
In the next second, a black off-road vehicle whizzed past them. A few minutes later, two police cars followed.
“Criminals in front! Cooperate with the police in enforcing the law! Don’t be stubborn!”
Xu Xizhou stared curiously at the black off-road vehicle that was far away. The off-road vehicle was obviously modified, and the sound of the engine was different from that of ordinary vehicles. The two police cars couldn’t catch up with it at all.
Xu Xizhou watched as one of the police cars skidded and got stuck on the muddy road. He squinted his eyes, stepped on the clutch suddenly, shifted gears, and accelerated.
The car shot out like an arrow from a string. With the seat belt pulling him back, the coach stared at him in shock.
“Xu Xizhou, what are you doing? Are you crazy?”
In less than two minutes, Xu Xizhou’s car stopped in front of the police car. He poked his head out of the car and shouted to the two policemen who were pushing the car, “Get in the car.”
The two policemen got into the car hesitantly, and the older policeman said, “Young man, there are criminals around here, it’s very dangerous. You should leave—”
Before the older policeman finished speaking, Xu Xizhou had already stepped on the accelerator and pushed to the highest gear. The coach clutched his chest as he looked at the speed displayed on the dashboard that was about to explode. He felt that his high blood pressure, which had been dormant for many years, was about to hit.
“This kid is really a fucking racer!”
Xu Xizhou turned his face to the side, the corners of his lips hooked up, “I forgot to mention that I drive F2, so you must fasten your seat belts.”
The two policemen gasped at the same time, and hurriedly fastened the seat belts in the rear seats. They watched Xu Xizhou drive the coach car worth less than 100,000 yuan with the momentum of a top supercar. The engine roared and rolled up smoke and dust all over the ground. In their field of vision, the black off-road vehicle was getting closer and closer to them.
The coach in the co-pilot’s seat was almost out of breath, his hands were tightly grasping his seat belt, and he turned his head to glance at the driver’s seat. This kid is still laughing! He can still laugh!
Xu Xizhou quickly caught up with the black off-road vehicle and drove alongside it. The off-road vehicle tried to pin him several times, but he nimbly avoided it. There are bumpers on the front and rear of the off-road vehicle, and it is impossible to force a stop. He narrowed his eyes slightly, looked at the sign ahead, and suddenly had an idea.
He slammed on the accelerator, overtook the black off-road vehicle, then shifted to neutral, loosened the accelerator, and turned the steering wheel sharply to the left. The black off-road vehicle couldn’t dodge it in time. The body of the car brushed against his front, the center of gravity suddenly deviated, and it slammed into the iron notice board.
Looking at the overturned off-road vehicle, Xu Xizhou whistled very briskly, “Officers, you can carry out your mission now.”
Without a response for a while, he turned his head, only to find that the two policemen in the back seat were all disheveled. One of them was lying on the car window, looking like he was about to vomit.
Xu Xizhou: …
Ten minutes later, seeing the criminals in the black off-road vehicle not far away being handcuffed, Xu Xizhou’s tense heart was completely relieved. Just after starting the car, a loud bang was suddenly heard.
Damn, the cylinder exploded.
He turned his head and smiled awkwardly at the ashen-faced coach.
“Coach, look at the bright side, you can get a new car.”
“Xu-Xi-Zhou!” The coach’s angry roar resounded throughout the road.
Xu Xizhou sat on the bench in the training ground, waiting for Zhuang Jingchun to pick him up. He was ready to be scolded by the man, but Zhuang Jingchun seemed relieved when he saw him.
“Do you know whose car you chased after?”
“A vicious wanted criminal who has been on the run for eighteen years. He is suspected of rape, abduction, extortion, and malicious murder. The police once offered a reward of 500,000 yuan for him. “
“Damn, I hit this scumbag’s car?”
