As He Xuan is making his way to his and Shi Qingxuan’s usual meet up place, he overhears his conversation on the phone.
Shi Qingxuan is on the bench, his textbooks and white handbag beside him, and his phone pressed against his ear as a gentle smile makes its way onto his face.
“I really like him,” Shi Qingxuan says, and He Xuan pauses in his walk over.
Qingxuan hasn’t seen him making his way over yet, so He Xuan hides, the matter of who Shi Qingxuan liked too private for him to know.
“Ge, I’m talking to you about my boyfriend, could you at least listen to me?” He’s whining to his brother, He Xuan realizes, and leaves so they can talk in peace.
It’s two hours later, after he texted Shi Qingxuan that something came up and they can’t meet today and after his classes are over, when he thinks back on what happened and the words Shi Qingxuan said process in his head.
He Xuan calls Hua Cheng right after.
