Qi Le’s cellphone had been turned off and Ye Shuichuan couldn’t contact him, so the latter felt that it was inconvenient and ended up charging it for him. When Qi Le turned over, he happened to see it on the bedside table. He unlocked his cellphone and found that it wasn’t midnight yet. He looked at Gu Bai, “Have they all gone back?”
“Ye Shuichuan originally planned to stay, but he left when he saw me.” Gu Bai sat beside his bed, “I asked him and he told me that he didn’t know that you knew Xiao Le.”
“Mmm, you didn’t know as well, right?”
Gu Bai was really puzzled. “How did you know each other?”
Qi Le looked up to the ceiling, “I forgot.”
Gu Bai, “...”
Qi Le eyed him, “Don’t worry, I’ll tell you when I recover my memory.”
Gu Bai thought about it and realized there was no other way. “Then give me your number so I can contact you in the future.”
“Oh, the number is...” Qi Le suddenly paused. Gu Bai seemed to understand his difficulty and asked, “Lost your memory, forgot?"
Qi Le nodded, breaking out in a cold sweat. He almost said his previous number just now. Gu Bai looked at him, picked up his cellphone and dialled his own number. But when he looked at it, he found Qi Le’s number familiar. He hung up and looked up Qi Le again. “Were you the one who called me the other night?”
“A few days ago...” Qi Le suddenly remembered calling this man when he had learned of his own death. He blinked innocently, “I vaguely remembered what Xiao Le had entrusted to me so I called you. But then I realized that I forgot where I put your stuff after the call connected so I didn’t dare to speak.”
His answer sounded entirely reasonable. There was no reason for Gu Bai to doubt his words. He looked at the time and turned off the light. “Go to sleep.”
The curtains weren’t drawn so the ward wasn’t very dark. Qi Le looked at Gu Bai’s fuzzy figure and suddenly asked, “What do you like about Qi Le?”
“I just like him, why?” Gu Bai’s voice sounded very faint and unhurried. “After all these years, I’ve gotten used to him being by my side and can’t imagine myself with anyone else. Why?”
“...Just asking.” Qi Le looked up at the ceiling again and thought about all these years. He sighed. He only regarded this person as his friend. If he became his lover... that required a lot of mental and emotional preparation. He shuffled to the side of the bed. “What is your plan for the future now?”
Gu Bai kept quiet for a moment before he replied, “I don’t know.”
Qi Le sighed again and didn’t know what else to say. Instead, Gu Bai suddenly asked, “I heard that you caught Ning Xiao sleeping with your friend again? What do you like about Ning Xiao?”
“Laozi doesn’t like him now, and there’s no way I’ll remember anything regarding him in this life."
Gu Bai was surprised, “Why?”
“No reason. That’s how I think, and I also want to tell you that I will never behave so lowly again,” Qi Le vowed. “I want to stay away from that messy circle. Laozi’s reputation will definitely improve. Perhaps there will even be girls chasing after me. Do you believe me?”
Gu Bai turned over. “Sleep.”
Qi Le, “......”
Qi Le woke up very early the next day as usual. Ye Shuichuan came to visit him early in the morning with a bruise on the side of his lips. Qi Le was shocked, “What happened to you?”
“I was in a fight yesterday,” Ye Shuichuan sat by his bed and looked at him. “How are you?”
“I’m okay,” Qi Le stared at him. “Who were you fighting with? Tranny?"
“Um... Huh?” Ye Shuichuan looked surprised. “Didn’t you call him Xiaoshu gēbefore?”
“Didn’t I lose my memory?”
“What did you say?!" Ye Shuichuan grabbed him, “Did you lose your memory again?! Do you remember me?!”
“...Gē” Qi Le looked at him, “I’ve not yet recovered my memory, alright?”
“That’s impossible. The last time you got drunk, you also said that the person you like doesn’t like you but likes your friend. You’re obviously okay now.”
Qi Le subconsciously looked at Gu Bai who was reading beside him. Seeing that he had no reaction, he suddenly relaxed and asked blankly, “Did I say that? I have no impression of that at all. Oh, it could be that I remembered a little bit briefly when I was drunk, but then forgot everything again when I woke up.”
“So that’s the case... Then why were you depressed yesterday?”
“When was I ever?!" Qi Le looked like a dejected puppy as he finally understood the reason for last night fiasco. He felt that there was no end to the matter. He took a deep breath and asked, “That’s all there is to this matter. What’s up with your injury?"
“I went to settle scores with the little bitch last night. If it weren’t for him, you wouldn’t be like this. But Xiaoshu just had to cut in so we started fighting. Oh, but then we made up again.”
Qi Le pursed his lips and casually chatted with the two. Ye Shuichuan and Gu Bai meant to let him out of the hospital in the evening. Naturally, he refused, giving the excuse that he had hit his head again and felt dizzy. Finally, it was decided that he would leave tomorrow morning. Ye Shuichuan left it up to him. Seeing Gu Bai here with him, he wanted to give them the opportunity to be alone. He winked at a certain someone, hinting for him to grasp this opportunity well, then got up and left. Qi Le walked him out, his face covered in black lines. He looked at the ward number on the door and found it wasn’t far from his former ward. He turned back and asked, “Can I visit other patients?”
Gu Bai glanced at the time and got up. “Go ahead, I’ll go get you some food."
