Don’t Be a Kept Man
He wrapped his hands around Lu Qi’s neck, and squeezed with force.
Lu Qi began to feel a lack of oxygen in his brain as he was being suffocated.
He narrowed his eyes as he struggled to breathe, and with a vicious glare, he tightened his right hand into a fist with the middle knuckle sticking a little bit outwards.
He aimed for the man’s stomach and gathered his energy to strike, when the pressure on top of him was gone.
Who knew when Huo Ming Chen appeared, but when he did, he hooked his fingers onto the back collar of the man’s shirt, and flung him against the wall.
Pinning him down with one arm, he bent his knee and with force, rammed it into the man’s stomach.
He kept hitting and hitting until the man curled up like a shrimp, but that did not stop Huo Ming Chen.
The punches and kicks were like rain, falling nonstop, and each strike was critical, almost killing the man.
No words came out of him as he beat the other guy up, but you could feel the immense anger emitting from him.
Lu Qi’s sharp eyes spotted security guards turning around the corner at the other end of the hallway, and quickly pulled them apart.
He quietly said,
“Stop! If you keep hitting him, he’s going to die.”
Huo Ming Chen let Lu Qi pull him away, and finally had a moment of clarity.
He turned his head to look at Lu Qi, breathing heavily with reddened eyes.
One could see he was still boiling with anger.
This version of him, Lu Qi recalled that he only saw it once in his previous life, and it made him pause for a moment.
Taking advantage of their blindspot as they talked, the man crawled back up, and was just about to ram his fist into the back of Huo Ming Chen’s head.
Out of the corner of his eye, Lu Qi saw a shadow and subconsciously shoved Huo Ming Chen out of the way.
Then he felt dizzy as the punch landed right in his face.
Still, he did not forget to hold onto Huo Ming Chen who began to try beating up the other man again in a craze.
“Who cares about the points.
I’m going to fucking kill him!!!!”
Just as Huo Ming Chen was able to struggle free from Lu Qi’s grasp, the security guards and professors came quickly to the scene of the crime.
In the end, the man was brought back to the head office for investigation, and Lu Qi brought to the university infirmary.
Huo Ming Chen stayed with him as Lu Qi was subjected to a series of tests.
Huo Ming Chen only relaxed when the doctors confirmed that there were no issues.
His face however was still frowning, and during the entire ride back home, it stayed in a scowl.
Lu Qi crossed his arms, and leaned against the seat to rest.
He closed his eyes, and after a long while, suddenly opened his mouth,
“The one who got hit was me, not you……” So why are you mad?
“Hitting you is the same as hitting me.”
Huo Ming Chen scrunched up his face, pursing his lips.
Someone cut him off on the highway and he honked hard twice.
“This piece of shit!”
Without any sincerity, Lu Qi said,
“Stop thinking about it.
Didn’t his family say his personality was aggressive, that he had mental issues?”
As soon as Huo Ming Chen heard Lu Qi, he immediately stopped the car.
He slammed on the car horn multiple times.
He always had anger management issues, but ever since he met Lu Qi, he has learned to keep it down.
But today, his riled up face looked very similar to the personality of the Huo Ming Chen in his past life.
He didn’t raise his head before he asked,
“What, you feeling sorry for that Li Zi Yan?”
Li Zi Yan, the girl who Lu Qi helped on the first day of freshman military training.
It’s always the most stubborn and pure form of love when it’s your first love.
In this case, even more so due to this type of kind and helpful gentleman like Lu Qi.
It was not a far stretch to imagine that she would develop feelings.
Li Zi Yan was the most stubborn and persistent out of all of Lu Qi’s pursuers.
Perhaps, because she fell harder in love than the others due to the connection of the 100 push ups.
A few rejections later, it made her heart shatter into pieces, more heartbroken than any other pursuer, and a white knight beside her decided to enact justice.
And so Lu Qi was given this misfortune.
“I can’t say if I feel for her, but I just think she doesn’t have good eyesight.”
She could have liked any other man, but she chose to plant herself in front of a stone-hearted human.
There wasn’t much feeling underneath Lu Qi’s surface appearance.
He stared at the rear-view mirror that was reflecting himself, thinking that he looked quite like a panda.
Huo Ming Chen’s face began to clear up like storm clouds after a storm, and restarted the car.
It’ll get better in a few days.
Good thing we asked for a few days’ absence.
Take the time to rest up.”
Lu Qi highly regarded the reason why he could become a kept man,
“What if I become disfigured?”
“Even if you are, you’re still handsome.”
Right after that, Huo Ming Chen laughed.
He looked at Lu Qi who was scowling at the side mirror, and pulled his head closer for a kiss.
“Who cares about your face.
I’m not with you for that.
As long as you are alive and well, isn’t that alright? Don’t you think so?”
Huo Ming Chen said it so seriously and sincerely that Lu Qi could not lie to himself.
He unconsciously touched his face where Huo Ming Chen held him for the kiss, as if there was still a warm feathery touch left behind.
This was the first time he could feel what it meant to have a kiss from Huo Ming Chen.
The author has something to say:
Huo Ming Chen: You’re still handsome no matter what.
Lu Qi: …… (No expression on his face, but he was feeling a little proud and conceited on the inside)
