1568 This Was the Last Indulgence
That night, Su Wan went to the bonfire party with everyone.
The locals were singing and dancing, with many people pitching tents at the side.
The land area was spacious, and the moon seemed to be just overhead. Stars filled the sky, just like a dream.
Many people had set up space telescopes here and looked at the sky.
Su Wan looked at Gu Jingyu. Gu Jingyu set up a tent very quickly and asked Su Wan to come over and sit down.
Everyone who walked by said, “Hey, Bantu. The tent is so small. Can two people sleep inside?”
“Go to Hell.”
Gu Jingyu looked at Su Wan. “It’s for you alone. Don’t listen to them talk rubbish.”
Su Wan blushed. “I know. What about you? Where will you stay?”
“I’ll stay beside you.”
Bantu pointed at the tent beside hers. “I’ll stay with them.”
Gu Jingyu said, “It must have been really tough for you. You’ve been taking on production after production.”
“I’m alright. I have nothing to do in my free time, anyway.”
“Eh. Being young is just great.” While speaking, Gu Jingyu used his arms as a pillow and lay down.
Su Wan said, “Senior Jingyu, your life was like this for the first two years too, right?”
“So, just as Li Xiao said, your works must be more concentrated when you’ve just gotten popular. Once you’ve established your fame, you can relax a little later on.”
Gu Jingyu said, “Yes. So everyone goes through the same thing.”
Su Wan said, “I never thought that I would become famous one day. I’m very content now. It’s enough as long as I don’t starve to death.”
Gu Jingyu smiled and looked at her. “You’re really easily satisfied.”
“Hn. Of course.”
Both lay there and chatted, mentioning some of their common friends.
He still followed them closely every day. But he watched them quietly and never contacted any of them.
She said, “Senior Jingyu…”
He let out a hum.
“Are you really not going back?”
Gu Jingyu smiled. “Why?”
“It’s… It’s nothing.”
Su Wan turned her head away.
She thought about how happy Gu Jingyu was in this place.
Perhaps he genuinely did not want to go back anymore.
As for her, she felt that she should not say too much if he were happy.
Making him hesitate, making him upset, making him uneasy.
She could do none of these.
Su Wan lay down. “Is everyone staying here tonight?”
“Yes. This area is a camping ground.”
“How nice. We can fall asleep looking at the stars.”
“But you still have to go inside the tent. It will be freezing at night.”
“Hn. I know.”
“Go in and rest if you’re tired. I’ll go there and sleep.”
Su Wan looked at him and nodded.
But they chased Gu Jingyu out upon his arrival.
“Go, go. Why did you come here? There’s no more space for you here.”
“Get lost. Let me go in.”
“No way, no way. Quick, go. The tent over there can definitely fit two people. Why are you here to squeeze with us?”
“Hey, you guys…”
“Gu… Bantu.” Upon hearing the commotion, she said to him, “Why don’t you just come here?”
When the people over there heard this, they started laughing even more loudly.
Su Wan said, “I am tiny. I won’t take up much space either. This tent will probably be suitable too. Their tent is a bit too cramped.”
There were already three people. With Gu Jingyu, it would be four. No matter how big the tent was, it would still be cramped.
Seeing this, they hastily pushed Gu Jingyu towards her while grinning.
“Go quickly, go quickly.”
“Exactly, exactly. What are you still doing here? If you don’t go, we’ll go.”
“Yes, yes. If you don’t go, I’ll go.” The man was about to get up as he said this.
Gu Jingyu swiftly pushed him backward.
Only then did he walk to Su Wan’s side.
He looked at the tent. “You… You sleep first.”
“Hn. Come inside quickly too. The tent is huge.”
She lay inside. Gu Jingyu glanced around before turning his head. He even saw those few hoodlums pull open the zip of the tent and make faces at Gu Jingyu while watching the fun.
Gu Jingyu shook his fist at them before walking into the tent.
Su Wan moved to the side.
Gu Jingyu lay down.
He lay flat on the ground and looked at the top of the tent.
He said faintly, “Go to sleep.”
Su Wan lay on her side.
She looked beside her at Gu Jingyu.
The two of them were in proximity as they quietly listened to the people outside talking and singing.
Someone was playing the guitar.
That sound was so moving.
Su Wan thought that perhaps he would not go back again for the rest of his life.
Perhaps he would rather be Bantu and not Gu Jingyu.
She closed her eyes and felt about until she found his hands.
Gu Jingyu paused.
Su Wan said, “Shh.”
She wanted to be close to him just this once.
Without considering so many things, she just wanted to move closer and closer to him according to her heart’s wishes.
Gu Jingyu’s hands grasped hers.
She could hear him swallow.
She bit her lips, merely feeling that she had never been this bold.
But she did not know if this time would be the last.
With the night sky above them, she looked at his face and eyes, which were as bright as starlight in the darkness.
His scent was a masculine scent that smelled as pleasant as sunlight.
He swiftly embraced her. When he kissed her lips, their tongues instinctively intertwined.
The tent was completely still.
The people outside were still looking on curiously.
“Bantu can’t possibly not touch her for the entire night, right?”
“Seriously. In that case, he’s going to become a Buddha.”
“Hahaha. Do you think everyone is like you?”
“Hey, shh. Don’t make any noise.”
Inside the tent…
Su Wan was biting her lip tightly.
Her eyes trembled with every collision of his body with hers.
But she bit her lip unrelentingly and did not move as she was worried about making noise here.
Until the next day.
When she woke up in the crook of his arm, she could smell the scent of fresh grass, sunlight, and…
Su Wan looked at his face fondly, as if genuinely hoping that this day would never end.
The sun would always rise again.
The noise outside would begin again.
One after another, everyone came out of their tents.
Gu Jingyu had woken up too. The two of them had not been able to shower at night. Su Wan momentarily felt embarrassed as she seemed to carry his scent.
Sunlight shone in when they opened the tent.
Outside, the people in the tents next to theirs looked at Gu Jingyu with suggestive expressions.
But the two of them had not made much noise in the night. So, they were suspicious but uncertain.
Gu Jingyu said nothing as he took Su Wan inside to wash up.
Su Wan saw what Gu Jingyu’s life was like for the day.
During lessons and after lessons, apart from teaching them English, he also taught them history, geography, and physical education.
The children really liked Gu Jingyu a lot. After lessons, they still pestered him and refused to let him leave.
