Chapter 6 喜欢的东西很容易记住 Things we like a very easy to remember.

 

Guo Zhi hugged his history book memorising, then placed his head against the wall : “I just recited history from memory, it seems like I’ve forgotten again.”

Wang Linlin supported her head, yawning: “Then you’re better than me, I just recite this sentence and forgot the ones in front.”

Guo Zhi looked to Wang Linlin’s table and the spine of the book was pasted with celebrity stickers: “But you have idol’s birthdays, blood types and hobbies remembered perfectly clear.” [T/N am I the only one who doesn’t care about this because I can never remember anyways like why bother]

“What do you know, that is because I like it, i’m willing. What has primitive people [1] appearing in that period got to do with me. If I miss Andy Lau’s [2]new film, I’ll appear out dated.”

[1]Primitives are referred to as the worlds first people.

[2] 刘德华 Liu DeHua Andy Lau a famous HK actor, singer and film producer.

“I think studying well for the future to become a to hide the truth from masses VIP, to summon that celebrity, will he still dare not to see me?” [T/N He’s saying by studying well you’ll be able to meet your fave celebrity in the future because you might surpass them as a VIP]

“Your idea is to difficult to achieve!”

Guo Zhi clung onto his arm: “At least I have this idea, you will also just look at them stickers drooling.”

At night the second lesson is self study. Guo Zhi looked at the school bags stacked on the table and the dizzy and sleepy classmates, such an atmosphere weighed people to suffocate. He looked up to see the ceiling, the sound of classmates constantly reciting a lesson from memory came through his ears. After 36 seconds, Guo Zhi suddenly stood up to go outside.

Everything is quiet outside, slight wind, slight moonlight. He went to the little garden, sat propping his head up, just sat. The small garden is close to the lake, across the lake there is a faint light, Guo Zhi took a closer look, his mouth could not help but tilt.

Shi Xi sat on the lakeside, his posture is still, cross legged, laptop placed on his legs.

Guo Zhi saw Shi Xi from far away, he does not disturb, he’s also not close. He does not care about the distance, only care about who is in his line of sight.

Until Shi Xi closed the notebook (laptop), Guo Zhi at last from across the lake cried out: “Shi Xi~”

Shi Xi did not respond, the Dean’s flashlight however responded. A surge of light shined on Guo Zhi’s face, Guo Zhi used the back of his hand to block them sight, his heart was surprised. He hastily flew into the grove to camouflage. The Dean frowned, he obviously just saw the person, why are they missing after a while? Then he held the flashlight shaking it around in all directions. Guo Zhi hid like a ninja in the grove. The Dean ended up empty handed with doubts and left. Guo Zhi embarrassed stuck his head out, overhead, leave stains on his clothes. Seeing Shi Xi to the right he walked over. He went straight to the left wanting to meet Shi Xi.

“Shi Xi~” This time he lowered his volume, Shi Xi heard the voice, he u-turned and went left. Guo Zhi gritted his teeth and went to the right.

So in the long run, the distance between the two was always separated by the lake. Those who don’t know would think that the two of them was shooting a romantic drama: turning left, turning right.

Guo Zhi gritted his teeth: “You don’t want to bump into me, forget it, I don’t care!” He turned to leave.

Shi Xi went to the school building, passing the gardens Little grove. Guo Zhi suddenly stood up form the grove, bringing more leaves, like the primitives in the history book he caught Shi Xi’s clothes: “Let me catch?”

The result one mountain is also a high mountain, the Dean’s flashlight shook over again. The Deans expression was serious: “Let me catch! There’s no class now, what are you doing here?!”

“I. We” Guo Zhi wanted to jump back into the grove, he was dragged back after Shi Xi grabbed his collar: “This classmate is a premature baby, he’s not very strong. He fainted repeatedly in the grove, the teacher let me take him to the hospital, this is the application for leave.” Shi Xi took out the application for leave handing it to the Dean. The Dean suspiciously looked at Guo Zhi covered in leaves, then looked at the the application for leave. He softened his tone: “Ok. Since it’s like this quickly go, health is important.”

After they cross the Dean by a few steps, Guo Zhi’s eyes were full of respect: “So you have an application for leave, where is your body uncomfortable?

Shi Xi’s face under the brim of the cap with no ups and downs : “This application for leave, just need one sheet to turn into many sheets.” Hearing these words, Guo Zhi was distracted and did not react, he immediately looked to Shi Xi’s clothes pocket, inside was stuffed with a lot of paper. He pulled out a application for leave, pulled out two applications for leave, he pulled out countless applications for leave.

He came to understand, the so called application for leave was in fact all Shi Xi’s copies. He could not help but have more intense respect in his eyes. The application for leave, is equal to an edict, it is senior high schools travel essential’s good thing.

Hua Gu Yu sneakily ran down to buy a bottle of drink, he saw Shi Xi and Guo Zhi. Guo Zhi called him first: “Hua er!”

“What, so you know this strange person.”

Guo Zhi unhappy: “He is not a strange person! Hua er, talk nonsense again I’ll tear your petals.”

Hua Gu Yu shrugged: “What on earth do you look like, also don’t be too envious of my appearance. Not every person can look like this.” Hua Gu Yu comforted Shi Xi simultaneously, slightly titled his head aiming at Shi Xi’s face under the cap. Not long after, his face was suddenly pale. He shook his head not stopping and retreated: “Impossible. You’re not as handsome as me. You’re not as handsome as me. Nobody in this world is handsomer than me. I hate you! I hate you!!” After speaking he could not stand the blow and bawled running far.

Regarding Hua Gu Yu’s abnormal (reaction), Guo Zhi does not feel surprised. Shi Xi indifferently said: “This school has a lot of crazy people.”

“Yeah.” Agreed! He was unhappy when Hua Gu Yu said that Shi Xi was strange, but Shi Xi can say that Hua Gu Yu is crazy. Guo Zhi’s bias is really quite heavy.

A firefly flew past in front of the two of them, Guo Zhi reached out to capture it but the firefly flashed by: “Look, it’s a firefly.”

“Just an ass glowing insect, Tv series and anime over beautify it.”

“That is to say, as often seen on Tv series, there is suddenly a cloud of fireflies in front of the male and female protagonist and in spite of knowing that it’s a bit illusory, they cannot resist feeling romantic.” [T/N again I’m a bit confused but I think he’s trying to say even though the main protagonists know that the fireflies aren’t pretty they pretend to feel romantic.]

“Compared to reality, humans prefer illusory things.”

“Certainly not. This is a type of longing, a type of sustenance.”[3] Guo Zhi’s eyes chased the firefly, he continued to say: “Although they’re not as pretty as in Tv series, I think that being able to emit light, even if it’s faint, it is also warm.” Guo Zhi’s hands without warning stretched to Shi Xi’s chest, placed it on the position of his heartbeat, feeling a little bit of temperature from there: “Like here.” Maybe it’s not just a tad bit of temperature, there seems to be a process of burning Guo Zhi’s fingers. Then along with fingers climbing up his skin, his face dyed red. He retracted his hand to his pants wiping, but he could not wipe off any feeling. [T/N I’m squealing, ^.^ Shi Xi’s actually let Guo Zhi touch him like what😏]

[3] to entrust the care of sb or to find substance in.

Shi Xi seems to not have noticed Guo Zhi’s abnormal, he just looked at the firefly. It flew slowly in front of the two people, it’s tail emitted light not illuminating anything, but it’s pupils were deeply flashing.

There is still a slight wind blowing, there is still a slight moonlight, but, such a night will not let Guo Zhi feel asphyxia [4] and lonely. Beside him was his breath, beside was him. [T/N Shi Xi]

[4] suffocate

He read, but did not read the romance category; He watched DVD, but he just watched cartoons and horror; He wrote fiction, but only wrote about pain; He has a lot of not necessary; In fact he had good grades; He was very good looking; He concealed himself in the world not batting an eyelid observing and portraying a mundane; When he’s writing he will break away from the world.

This is what Guo Zhi remembers so far.

All his history, mathematics and every textbook is more easy to remember.
