A large amount of light shone, and Xu Pinyu blinked her eyes uncomfortably.
She was standing in the hallway, still a little dazed. Because of the dim light, she couldn’t see the environment of his house clearly.
From the decoration style to the furnishings of Shen Youbai’s house, all of it gave off a feeling she couldn’t describe.
If she was forced to describe it then the closest thing would probably be a feeling of indifference.
White walls, black sofas, dark brown wood floors and white ashtrays on glass coffee tables that are not littered and barren of any superfluous items. All the cabinets were black. Even the corners of the TV seemed to be very sharp.
Xu Pinyu thought there was more furniture in model houses than in his house.
As she looked around, Shen Youbai walked to the kitchen and asked, “What do you want to drink?”
Xu Pinyu returned to her senses and followed behind him, saying hurriedly, “No need, I will leave soon.”
Shen Youbai didn’t seem to hear her as he took out a glass and poured ice cold water into it.
Xu Pinyu sneezed. Shen Youbai paused, turned around and poured out the cold water. He picked up a stainless steel kettle and poured hot water into the glass.
She held the water he had handed to her, her palm on the glass, it wasn’t too hot.
Xu Pinyu nodded slightly, “Thank you.”
Before the rim of the cup left her lip, she asked curiously, “Aren’t uncle and aunty at home?”
Shen Youbai looked at her, “No.“
“Oh.” Unable to respond properly, Xu Pinyu bit the rim of the cup.
After a few seconds of silence he said, “I live alone.”
Xu Pinyu was a little surprised and earnestly said, “That’s amazing. If I lived alone, I would make a mess of my home. Besides, I can only eat, not cook.”
She spoke with a nasally voice along with a pampered tone, and a softer voice than usual. Shen Youbai put his hands on the smooth mirror table, and tapped his fingers a few times.
He turned his head and interrupted her, “What the hell do you want to say?”
Xu Pinyu was stunned, she pursed her lips, “I wanted to ask you…”
She fixed her breath and raised her eyes to look at him, “What you said yesterday, did you mean it?”
Shen Youbai’s face didn’t change, “What did I say?”
She opened her eyes wide, hesitated for a while, and said vaguely, “You…About me.”
He raised his eyebrows, “What?”
Xu Pinyu became anxious, he was doing this deliberately.
She opened her mouth, but no sound came out, she threw herself on the table and buried her head in her crossed arms.
Shen Youbai has been staring at her the entire time. From the time she opened her mouth, the opening and closing of her lips, and the sight of her snowy teeth appearing and disappearing, till the time she buried her head in her arms.
He immediately grabbed her wrist and said, “Come on.”
Before Xu Pinyu could react, she was dragged to the hallway behind the living room.
A row of paintings hung on it’s white wall.
Releasing her hand, Shen Youbai turned on the wall lamp.
Xu Pinyu was facing a somewhat weird painting.
He asked, “What do you think this looks like?”
A cut was made in the middle of the canvas, and around the cracked edge, it was painted with velvety black paint.
“A feather.” She whispered unconsciously.
Shen Youbai said, “There is nothing painted on it, just like you.”
Xu Pinyu turned to look at him while pointing at herself, “Me?”
He stared at the painting without moving his eyes, as if talking to himself he muttered, “It was painted after I tore it.”
Underneath the light she looked at his side profile. His eyes, which had always looked like he was on a cliff looking down on everything, looked empty and obsessed.
After a moment of silence, he suddenly turned to Xu Pinyu and asked her, “Do you know what I am thinking now?”
Xu Pinyu shook her head blankly.
His eyes were deep, “I’m thinking, that under this painting, I want to have sex with you.”
She stiffened suddenly, feeling something spreading densely in her heart.
Xu Pinyu said in a flurry, “I’m sorry.”
He laughed, “I scared you?”
It was that lonely smile that made her anxious, “No!”
Xu Pinyu explained, “Because of what you said yesterday, I went to buy a DVD.”
After a pause, she said awkwardly, “The content is about… What you talked about before.”
Shen Youbai frowned, then showed an expression of understanding.
“I wanted to observe it, but this…”
She looked torn, and then the pictures came back to her mind, “It’s terrible.”
Shen Youbai said, “So?”
Xu Pinyu secretly took a breath and looked up at him, “So, could you please wait for me for a while.”
She seriously said, “I need to be mentally prepared.”
She didn’t know what she had said wrong, but Shen Youbai’s face completely sank.
He coldly said, “You and Wei Yixun have never done it, huh.”
Xu Pinyu was surprised, “He’s a good friend, just a friend.”
Shen Youbai looked at her, his eyes…
Made her feel like, ‘It’s too late to run now.’
After staring at her for a moment, he said, “I don’t believe you.”
Xu Pinyu frowned, she felt wronged, “It’s true.”
She thought for some time before saying, “Or, I can call him and ask him to prove it.”
Xu Pinyu was anxious and just wanted to explain herself, she did not notice how his eyes were blazing.
Shen Youbai said, “There’s no need to go through such trouble. Let me just have a look.”
She blinked, “What do you want to look at?”
He took Xu Pinyu to the end of the hallway.
The ground was covered with bottles of paint, an easel was standing there.
Shen Youbai put her on a high chair.
Then, Xu Pinyu watched him and kneel in front of her on one knee.
She didn’t even dare to dream about such a thing happening to her.
But, ‘The’ Shen Youbai said to her, “Open your legs.”
Xu Pinyu was stunned for a split second, she subconsciously tightened her legs.
Shen Youbai’s hands covered her knees respectively, “Don’t be afraid Feather, open your legs.”
This was the first time that she had heard him call her name like that.
Xu Pinyu, as if hypnotized, followed the light power he applied on her legs that guided her…
And opened her legs.
Shen Youbai grabbed her skirt, clenched it, and then slowly lifted it up.
Her head was blank. She could only focus on his chest rising and falling.
His palm gently stroked her thigh, as if it was treasure he had longed for for a very long time but dared not touch.
Xu Pinyu closed her legs, “…Itchy.”
Shen Youbai looked up at her.
From that look she inexplicably felt, maybe she would die here.
Shen Youbai pressed her shoulders and applied a little bit of pressure, before he turned and walked away.
She sat on the chair with a dazed expression, her legs still open.
He bit down on his forefinger’s knuckle while rummaging in the living room anxiously. He shook out a cigarette from the box.
He had to strike the lighter a few times with his trembling hands before it started.
He took a few puffs continuously, the smell of leather that came into his lungs made him feel better. He raised his head and gasped.
Truth was, whether she had done it with others or not, for Shen Youbai, as long as she stayed with him from now onwards, nothing else mattered.
He just wanted to find an excuse to touch her softest place.
He had brought upon a cruel calamity onto himself.
Xu Pinyu tidied up her skirt and walked to the living room anxiously.
She walked up to Shen Youbai.
He bent over and put out the cigarette butt in the ashtray.
He turned around and held her shoulders, pulling her closer.
A kiss fell on her forehead.
Shen Youbai said, “I’ll wait for you.”
When his soft lips was leaving, Xu Pinyu looked up at him.
His face was still aloof and arrogant, but it had a slight expression of sinking into depravity.
It was unforgettable.
