About half an hour ago, A-Qing had sent him a message saying, “I’m not having a good day, can I drop by?” Song Lan immediately replied “I’ll be waiting for you”.
It was a routine that they had, every time the girl felt a little overwhelmed by something, she sought asylum at his home.
He thought about how everything changed since Xiao Xingchen entered his life. Before, he was a very lonely person, people always referred to him as someone cold and distant, but little by little the other boy softened his heart, allowing him to feel things that he did not allow or did not know before, and his surroundings were changing. A-Qing was very similar to his brother, always full of energy and happiness, and that allowed her to gain his trust and let her enter his life, he felt the same comfort with her as he did with Xiao Xingcheng, he smiled to himself when he noticed how his thoughts always returned to the other boy. The smile that was always such a rare gesture on his face before, Xiao Xingchen has turned it into something that happened everyday.
The doorbell brought him out of his thoughts. Opening the door of his apartment, he found the girl’s crestfallen face. Sighing, he patted her head slightly “Come in, I’ll make some coffee.” When he returned to the living room with two steamy mugs, A-Qing had taken her usual spot on the couch. Sitting in front of her, he held out the mug, which was gladly received.
“Mmm … you always prepare the best coffees” The girl smiled, taking a sip. Song Lan chuckled lightly, as he picked up his mug, “Do you want to talk about what happened?”
A light sigh escaped A-Qing’s lips, as her index finger drew invisible circles on the edge of the mug. “Just a bad day at college… and Xue Yang, that sometimes drives me crazy and I want to throw my books at his face” an ironic “Who doesn’t?” it escaped from Song Lan’s lips in a whisper after A-Qing last words.
A-Qing looked up to speak, “I just needed to distract myself a bit, I hope I didn’t interrupt you.”
“Silly, you know you never bother me” he agreed, understanding the girl’s frustrations, particularly with the subject of Xue Yang. Not that he disliked the guy, over time they’ve learned to build a friendship, a very particular one, but friendship in the end. Even so, the threshold of patience Song Lan had with him was quite limited; that boy was way too chaotic and mischievous for his own good.
“Well,” the older said firmly, leaving the mug on the table, “we need to distract ourselves, do you want to do something in particular?”
A-Qing’s eyes lit up at the suggestion, she had the perfect idea in mind already, but the smile on her face startled Song Lan a little.
“I’ll probably regret it, but surely you already have something in mind …” The boy said closing his eyes and giving up to his fate.
