When I translated a teaser a few years ago my website was quite small and I was in a poor financial situation. I have been getting a few comments about...
Qin Yang was shocked, he had no idea what he had done wrong to make He Jin angry again. He followed He Jin like a little girl, and when they reached the dormitory, He Jin went back to his room without a word. Qin Yang was a bit pissed off, he grabbed He Jin’s shoulders and asked, “what is it about?”
Qin Yang let go of his hand, moved his lips a bit, and wanted to tell Qin Yang, “I don’t want you to support me financially”, “I’m also a guy, I want to depend on myself”, but when he almost said so, He Jin suddenly felt weak. He Jin had already argued over money with Qin Yang for a few times, and he’s really sick of it now.
He Jin sighed, and he also found himself having overreacted. He lowered his head and apologized, “sorry, I’m not in a good mood. I want to be alone for some time.”
Qin Yang frowned. If He Jin scolded him, Qin Yang might as well explain himself and apologize. But now that he’s so cold and distant, what could he actually do?
“Okay, I will call you later then.” That’s the only thing he could do.
Afterwards, the two returned to their own rooms.
Qin Yang didn’t go to bed immediately. He lied on bed for a while, then he suddenly recalled He Jin having told him that he wanted to go skiing, so he started doing some research.
After some research, he realized that the snow was starting to melt in Snowtown at the end of March. They had to go there this weekend instead of waiting longer.
He also made a few calls to several travel agencies, and made a tentative itinerary. Then, he texted Hou Dongyan, “monkey, are the lessons on Thursday and Friday important?”
Hou Dongyan, “there is a professional class on Thursday morning, and there’re no classes in the afternoon. There will be tutorials on Friday. What about it?”
Qin Yang, “is it okay if those classes are skipped?”
Hou Dongyan, “it might be complicated to skip the lesson of Thursday, but it’s ok to skip those two of Friday. Many people skip them anyway, and the professors don’t really care…why?”
Qin Yang, “I’m planning to take He Jin to Xuexiang Snowtown for skiing, it might take three, four days.”
Hou Dongyan, “…” damn it!
Qin Yang, “in this case, I will take him away Thursday afternoon. He doesn’t know my plan yet, don’t tell him.”
Hou Dongyan thought to himself, what an expert! He knew exactly how to handle girls…boys! He turned and looked at He Jin who had absolutely no clue, and wasn’t sure whether to envy or to sympathize him.
On Wednesday night, when the two were having dinner, Qin Yang suddenly said, “remember to wear a down jacket tomorrow.”
It was already March, it was getting warmer. He Jin had taken away his down jacket a week ago. He didn’t get it, “is the temperature dropping tomorrow?”
Qin Yang, “I’ll take you somewhere else tomorrow. It’ll be colder there.”
He Jin, “what place?”
Qin Yang, “it’s a secret.”
He Jin saw him looking mysterious, he didn’t know what plans Qin Yang was having, so he replied with a smile.
The next morning, when He Jin left his classroom, he received a call from Qin Yang immediately. Qin Yang told him to pack his belongings right away, take his ID and go to the east gate, as he was already waiting there.
He Jin hurriedly went back to his dormitory, Hou Dongyan still asked him where he’s going to, although he already knew, “brother Jin, why are you in such a hurry?”
He Jin looked confused, “Qin Yang is looking for me.”
Hou Dongyan nodded, and sounded a little guilty, “dress more, bring a scarf or a hat.”
He Jin, “…” this monkey seemed to know something…
Very soon, Hou Dongyan completely disappeared. He Jin was speechless. He opened the closet, turned the things inside over, then took out the scarf that Qin Yang bought together with him. He put it on with his face reddened, then rushed to the east gate.
On his way, He Jin was guessing where Qin Yang was going to take him. Could it be the Kunming Lake? It seemed to be a really cold season to go there…
Qin Yang was wearing a long blue and wide leather down jacket, looking stylish while waiting for him on the side of a BMW suv, attracting the attention of the students on the way. He Jin was far away and he looked a little shy… why is this guy trying to look some handsome?
When he approached, Qin Yang smiled and pushed him to the back seat of the suv, then he followed by sitting inside. There’s a driver in front. He Jin found it weird, “where are we going?”
The driver started driving the car fast, and they were soon on the highway. Clearly, they weren’t heading to Kunming Lake…
Qin Yang, without caring how the driver thought, held He Jin tightly. He whispered in his ears, “I’m taking you to somewhere that you will fall in love with.”
He Jin had a bad feeling…somewhere that he wanted, could Qin Yang taking him to go skiing?
But wait, where were they going to do that? Driving to go skiing? Where in A City could they ski right now?
He Jin continued asking Qin Yang, who just kept smiling without answering. After forty minutes, they arrived Chennan Airport, “where…where are we going?” He Jin was a little nervous and he kept grabbing Qin Yang’s arms.
