Chapter 1: Move House


Directory | Chapter 2



The sunshine in August was a good time to oversleep. Ren Yue woke up with messy hair, then changed his clothes and went downstairs. As he passed the living room, he half-squinted his eyes and saw that there seemed to be a guest at home. His father was entertaining the guest. Ren Yue was not particularly concerned. He yawned and walked lazily toward the kitchen.

Just then his father found him and shouted, "Ren Yue, come here."

Ren Yue was not very happy to walk over there and took off his shoes, and then he saw a young man wearing a black suit who looked like a model sat on the sofa. Ren Yue was most annoyed with these elite characters. He yawned and said impatiently, "Is there anything? If not I'm going back to sleep."

"This is your Uncle Bai, quickly greet him."

"Oh, hello uncle." Ren Yue said hello without any sincerity, then turned to his father, "Can I go back to sleep? I didn't go to bed until six o'clock. I'm sleepy now."

Father Ren was a language teacher and very good at ancient Chinese. Don't know if it's because he loved ancient Chinese so much that he became an old-fashioned person. He looked at his son's unruly look, he frowned and coldly yelling, "Ren Yue!"

Ren Yue rolled his eyes and said lazily, "I'm here. I'm not asleep yet."

In the end, there was an outsider present, even if Father Ren was so angry, he would not attack him on the spot. He pulled Ren Yue to sit next to him, and then said to the young man opposite him, "This is my son Ren Yue, I didn't teach well when he was a child. He is a bit naughty, but his character is not bad."

The young man called Uncle Bai smiled and said, "He is a little naughty indeed."

Ren Yue snorted before he looked up lazily at the young man in front of him. Just now, he simply glanced at him and didn't pay much attention to him. Now he looked at him seriously and found that this Uncle Bai looked really amazing. He was dressed in a Tang suit and had a pair of beautiful phoenix eyes. He obviously just sat on a cheap sofa, but it made him feel like he was sitting on a dragon chair. The whole momentum seemed extraordinary. Ren Yue thought he looked handsome, but in front of the other person, he may also a bit lacking. But Ren Yue wouldn't admit it, he felt that he may have a little charm of a mature man.
Father Ren gave a forced smile and then said, "I'll trouble you more in the future."

Uncle Bai nodded and said, "You're welcome."

Ren Yue couldn't understand their mystery. He glanced at the clock on the wall and immediately got up and wanted to go back to his room. He had been awakened by hunger, but now he had no mood to eat after being interrupted like this. Just as he stood up, his father followed him and said, "You go back and pack your things and move in with your uncle."

Ren Yue violently turned to look at his father, "What did you say?"

Father Ren didn't like Ren Yue yelled like this, he frowned and said, "I have to go abroad for a while, during that time you will stay with Uncle Bai."

Ren Yue was dissatisfied and said, "I just need to live in my own house."

"If you promised to live with Uncle Bai, I will buy you a whole set of game devices later." Father Ren was naturally most understanding of his son, and he threw out a condition that Ren Yue couldn't refuse when he opened his mouth. Although Ren Yue really wanted to reject it with his guts, but he had been looking at those game devices for a long time... Then he turned his head and looked at Uncle Bai and boldly asked him, "Is your house big?"

Uncle Bai smiled and said, "Yes."

The answer didn't make Ren Yue felt relieved, and he's got a lot of guts to ask, "I can live on your house, but I need a jacuzzi, an outdoor swimming pool... and a maid to take care of me all the time, so you can force me."

Father Ren bluffed and slapped Ren Yue's back and he said, "You don't make any trouble. It's good that Uncle Bai willing to take you."

"You think I was rushing to stay at his house! I don't want it!" Ren Yue snorted coldly and said, "What do you mean to shelter me? I just need to wave my hand, there are a lot of girls in the class rushing to take me to their house."

"You!"

"Forget it, I won't quarrel with you for the sake of game devices." Ren Yue glanced at his father and turned back to his room to picked up his cell phone and came out. Father Ren saw it, he frowned again and said, "Where is your luggage? Didn't I tell you to go up and pack your things?"

Ren Yue put his hands in his pockets, lazily answered, "All packed up."

Father Ren looked at Ren Yue, dressed in casual clothes, held a mobile phone and a charger in his hand, and then frowned again and said, "You know your phone all day long. Go and get your clothes and your textbooks out. I will rent out the house here, and you can't find anything if you come back."

"I've already packed up. Besides, doesn't this uncle looks very rich man? What is missing, I let him buy it, and it's not your money, what are you distressed about?"

Ren Yue glanced at the young man who was sitting there drinking tea, and then pouting at him, "Isn't it? Uncle Bai."

Mr. Bai nodded and replied, "You're right."

Father Ren suddenly showed a bitter smile, but he quickly put away this smile. He looked at Ren Yue with a straight face and then opened his mouth and said, "After going to Uncle Bai's house, you must remember to be obedient."

"Oh."

Ren Yue was so lazy and get away from them, he walked very confident and at ease. He looked at the car parked in front of the door and then stood in front of the car lazily. When Mr. Bai came out and saw him like this, he said, "Why don't you get in the car?"

Ren Yue hummed, "You haven't opened the door for me yet."

When Father Ren looked at his son's spoiled appearance, he suddenly frowned again. But he didn't say anything this time, just stood behind and watching them. Father Ren was an old man, and now he was fifty years old. The black hair on his head was no longer visible. The serious face was full of wrinkles. He looked at Ren Yue with a sullen face, he took a few steps forward and said to Mr. Bai, "Just... handed him to you, please treat him well."

Mr. Bai looked at the old man and finally smiled and answered, "Yes."

The car went away, leaving an old Father Ren stood in the sun. Father Ren stood for a while, then walked back to his house step by step, as if walked toward the past. He looked back at the car which had disappeared as if he had crossed to the future and entered a new life.
