世界有点甜_NO.2 全是因为你 It’s all because of you

 

Recently slanderous gossip swept the whole campus again, it’s all because Chen Ge had unexpectedly increased the fixed distance between a girl. In the past there had undoubtedly been no exceptions made and fair play, [1]  he politely rejected all invitations. To this, there is a lot of conjecture at school but it by no means has it affected his popularity, their resentment will only be centered on the legendary girlfriend.

[1] This just means that everyone could equally go near him and have a crush on him; includes men and women but nothing more

Mo Ka turned on the TV and tore open a bag of potato chips, he read a book for the whole day and occasionally he rewarded himself with food and drinks. Hao Shuai ran back from outside: “The sports meeting is tomorrow I signed up to the triathlon, what about you?”

“I have no interest in these things, female student’s chest shaking on the sports ground no longer attracts my attention.”

“That’s right, it’s now male students swaying their below that should appeal to you.”

Mo Ka grabbed a handful of potato chips and threw it towards Hao Shaui: “You speak less about me there, participating in sports activities will make you think that you have a proper sense of pride or dignity in reality you’re just person who has a head but no brain, a useless person no better than a handicap with completely fine limbs.”

“Mo Ka you dare talk about me like that be careful or I’ll find Chen Ge to cure you.”

“He can cure me?!” Mo Ka sneered gnawing the potato chips like he was venting something. To the end whether Chen Ge can cure him or not he himself can not understand.

“Come and cheer up for me tomorrow, raise some enthusiasm for me and let Gao Shan Shan see my dashing appearance on the sports ground.” Hao Shuai’s nose was almost blowing out air, a must have appearance.

“I recently need to seize the time to study.” Mo Ka refused without thinking like the places with  sea of people, it’s better not to go as much or it’ll only bring trouble to himself.

“Yi? Looks like you still don’t know that Chen Ge is also participating.”

“A cold person like him will participate in such a enthusiastic event? Don’t lie to me.”

“Are you kidding me? And you had intercourse with him, even a stranger knows more than you. You like him so much, it’s almost been half a year, what else do you know? What does he like to eat? What is his favourite colour? How old is he? How many family members does he have? Don’t tell me that you don’t even know these.” Hao Shuai really reproved Mo Ka. Mo Ka felt increasingly insignificant.

“These, even if I didn’t know these it’s no big deal. I’ve explained that I like him, there is completely no other requirement.”

“It’s really fancy that you can say that out loud, I see that you are too obtuse. Well I’ll ask you another question.” Hao Shuai pointed at Mo Ka.

“What?”

“Where is Chen Ge’s classroom?”

“This, that, I…” Mo Ka who was instantly depressed felt that he is still indeed not qualified to be Chen ge’s lover. Normally he also doesn’t go ask and does not go to his classroom. If it’s said like this he only knows that he likes Chen Ge, to his understanding he does not know as much as those female students. Mo Ka put the last potato chip into his mouth then threw the empty packet.

“You actually don’t even know this one, I simply admire you so much that I almost kneeled down for you.”

“Then you kneel.”

“Do you think I am stupid? Go wash, you’re sweating after running. Someone like you who doesn’t like sports, I think in another ten years you will become an old man [2] who is bald and has a beer belly.”

[2] 欧吉桑 uncle (Japanese loanword, respectful appellation for any older man) /older man/ man of mature years (Japanese loanword)

“None of your business.”

Mo Ka casually attached two sentences, his mind was still thinking about what Hao Shuai just said. With regards to Chen Ge he still wants to know more, not only things that others knows he wants to also know things that others don’t know.

The morning of the sports meet, the whole campus resounded the <Military Anthem of the People’s Liberation Army> just one song over and over again from elementary school to university. Students elbowed their way through the sports ground. Even if they are not united during class normally, at this point they are here to cheer for their own class just like Chinese people will fight with Chinese people but if a foreigner cursed that Chinese people are pigs then they will certainly rise together and expel them.

Mo Ka also followed the crowd to the sports ground, without selfish motives it is impossible. Besides wanting to see Chen ge it’s just wanting to see Chen Ge. Conveniently supposing that he returns with last place it will taunt him severely and frustrate him.

The position between the third year’s and First year’s was very distant they were simply scattered to the four corners of the earth. First is outdoor competition then the indoor, in the past he (Mo Ka) was always in the corner but today he chose to sit on the front row near the racetrack. All around were girls quarrelling with each other, eating melon seeds and playing with their phones. Not long after, the space was forcibly occupied by snack packets.

The bottle of mineral water in Mo Ka’s hands had half left, his eyes were fixed on the centre of the field. Chen Ge was stood there wearing a coat and shorts underneath, a fresh and cool and warm feeling existed side by side. His perfect facial features was worthy of his well-proportioned figure making people envious. Mo Ka himself looked until he lost focus, it was the first time that Mo Ka saw such a bright Chen Ge and so he could not help but look more. Everytime he took another look he would fall into the enemy’s hands even harder.

Chen Ge’s class already has many girls holding towels and water to wait for action after having accumulated energy. Of course they will not let such a big opportunity slip, you squeeze me I push you.

Mo Ka was rolling his eyes in the distance, his mind was whispering in a low voice: “Che, is he really that popular? These girls are simply the “good-looks club” [3] despise, strongly despise.

[3] people who attach great importance to a person’s appearance (pun on 外貿協會|外贸协会 foreign trade association)

Don’t despise others, when he himself sees Chen Ge’s face does he not drool over him.

The first to start is the group of first years, Mo Ka thought Chen Ge at most would have picked almost 100 metres. His body compared to Hao Shuai’s piece of obvious muscle is a lot worse but after 1500m had finished he still did not see Chen Ge’s figure. Mo Ka scorned even more: “He wouldn’t have chosen 5000m right? Isn’t this obviously to let me see a joke?”

Rather than talking about Mo Ka who came to cheer it’s better to look at Chen Ge make a fool of himself to find some psychological balance.

That earsplitting voice(s) from the girl(s) who was/were eating melon seeds a moment ago quietened down, those who were playing with their phones also stopped playing and those who were eating snacks also stopped eating. [3] Each and everyone’s gaze were frightening like a yellow weasel: “The next round is Chen Ge’s, when he runs this side our class definitely needs to be the loudest we cant lose to other classes.”

[3] I put (s) cos like it doesn’t specify who.

“En!” the girls all spoke in one voice. This excited and indignant attitude was critical enough to attack the male student who was warming up beside them.

 

[T/N Part two starts here for thos who only read part one]

 

Hao Shuai just finished warming up and sat in the unoccupied seat next to Mo Ka: “Your class’s chick is surely going to lose to me, hahaha.”

Mo Ka was too lazy to bother with Hao Shuai, numbers flashed in his mind, then 400m a lap then 5000m is 12.5 laps. Then Chen Ge will appear in front of him 12 times.

“What are you laughing at?”

“None of your business, where is Gao Shan Shan?”

“She will come in awhile, stay there and let her sit there. I don’t trust the jackals and wolves in our class.”

“Don’t~~!” Being together with a woman like Gao Shan Shan, Mo Ka is ten thousand unwilling.”

“Then it’s settled!”

Along with the gun sound ringing out Mo Ka’s line of sight was completely on the track and immediately screaming slogans overturned the sportsground and it’s really exaggerated. Do you think they are shooting a TV drama? Chen Ge only needs to run over there and the sounds of cheering will surge past like a ocean wave and even the boys were cheering for him, it’s understandable that this sort of hypocritical fake good person would not only win the favour of girls and also obtained the respect of boys, really not resigned to.

When Chen Ge ran past his side, he was originally going to say whatever nauseating cheers but he hadn’t even opened his mouth yet and the girl behind, her voice quickly blew him away. Chen Ge also did not look at his side and ran past, his speed is extremely sharp and the boys in other classes were left behind in the first lap. Let you know that this competition is about endurance, presently those playing handsome were running fast and in the end they became a panting old dog.

After nine laps Chen Ge was still in the leading position, the sweat on his forehead slid down his handsome outline, he was unspeakably good looking. Chen Ge became the lead in this neatly arranged competition and he was dazzling in the huge crowd of people. Mo Ka was drowned by the sounds of shouting like they were people from two different worlds.

Even Hao Shuai was surprised with Chen Ge’s outstanding physical strength: “Your man is an alien.”

Mo Ka stepped on Hao Shuai’s foot: “Be quiet! He are a monster.”

“Ai you, I’m embarrassed. Sure enough you’re lucky, you wasn’t looking for a partner and as soon as you do you find the strongest one.” Hao Shuai embraced Mo Ka’s shoulder with an envious expression.

The loud shouts in support came again. Chen Ge swept a glance at Mo Ka and conveniently saw Hao Shuai holding Mo Ka’s hands. He ran from inside the circle to the outside of the circle to seize the mineral water in Mo Ka’s hands.

“Yi, that, I have already drank out of it….” Mo Ka wanted to prevent.

But Chen Ge had already finished drinking the water when running and looking up then he forcibly threw the mineral water backwards in a straight line hitting Hao Shuai’s face accurately. Hao Shuai gritted his teeth in pain withdrawing his hand to cover his nose: “It hurts, it hurts, it really hurts.”

“You’re actually laughing, do you have any conscience?”

“You deserve it.”

“You’re good I’ll give you that, finding an extraordinary man!”

These words made Mo Ka even prouder, shaking his head: “Yeah, what about it? You sell ass.” Mo Ka was already so pleased that he casuall called people names.

“I sell ass? I think that it’s you who sells ass to obtain this man. I see that you sold your ass to obtain this man in exchange.” Hao Shuai shrugged his shoulders sarcastically.

Mo Ka waved his hand with as it should be by rights appearance: “But I sell my ass rightfully.”

At the same time whilst Mo Ka was proud of himself, he felt a hostile gaze sending chills up his back.

The competition was over and without a doubt Chen Ge took first place. Mo Ka watched a crowd of people rush forward to surround Chen Ge. He bit his nails thinking and hesitating about whether he should go and say the old-fashioned congratulations but there were so many people. That sort of embarrassed feeling will make him suffocate.

But, since Chen Ge has reached out into his world he has no reason to not go over.

Thinking for quite a while, Mo Ka stood up and after tugging his trousers when sitting it rather wrinkled went in the direction Chen Ge was. It was not easy for him to walk to outermost of the ring of encirclement. Mo ka was unable to get close again, they were separated by a 1 metre distance. Mo Ka obviously saw Chen Ge but he was unable to touch him. He was embarrassed and regretted making such a decision for himself, he wanted to swivel and escape.

At this time Chen Ge came out from the flood of girls and threw the towel that was on this head onto Mo Ka’s head: “Whya re you just stupidly standing there? Lets go.”

Mo ka pulled the towel down and complained: “It’s all sweaty and dirty.”

Chen Ge had already gone to the playground and disregarded people’s doubts/ Mo Ka threw the towel back to Chen Ge again: “It’s so dirty, who is going to help you hold it.” The towel was thrown on to the ground. Chen Ge did not pick it up, Mo Ka glared at him and picked up the towel and chased after him.

“Since it’s dirty,  why are you so close to me?” Chen Ge coldly cast a sidelong glance.

“I am a man, I’m not afraid of being dirty besides who wants to get this close to you? This passageway is so narrow.”  Mo Ka ignored the open road on the side and lied brazenly.

There were too many subtle changes. Usually he fundamentally will not feel the details of life but with the support of Chen Ge’s blessing Mo Ka seems to be optimistic day by day. Life no longer follows the prescribed order.So, Love is very cunning.
