Ye Chen never thought that there would come a day where he would become a relationship consultant.
The instant the new day came, he became really nervous. This was because right at the moment he opened his eyes, Death System began to rack its mind, sparing no effort to push Ye Chen into a pit again. It released the following mission: "Let Ren Jing help you wash your clothes."
This is such a mess!
He questioned the Death System, "Why is it not me washing Ren Jing's clothes!?" Although he really didn't know how to wash clothes, the mission would be less troublesome this way. He could stealthily collect Ren Jing's clothes, wash them in secret, and complete the mission without batting an eyelid.
But now, how could he have the nerve to ask Ren Jing to wash his clothes??
Death System thought inside its heart: Do you think your husband would be willing to let you use your 'fair, slender and delicate fingers ' to wash clothes? I'm afraid you must be thinking too much.
But it didn't speak the truth. Death System incited him instead, "You could help relieve Ren Jing's big member again, then 'accidentally' get your clothes dirty. That way, you can…"
Ye Chen could not stand hearing its words anymore. "p.i.s.s off!"
Death System, "Mum(ˉ(∞)ˉ)ble!"
Ye Chen turned silent. "Could you please not spell things out to describe the emoticon?" What does it mean by open bracket, a dash, open bracket again, then a horizontal eight, another dash, end with a close bracket? It's not cute at all! Spicy chicken system!
Ye Chen couldn't figure out how to complete this mission. Fortunately, he still had a lot of time, so he was taking it easy.
When he was just about to go look for Ren Jing, the doorbell rang.
Who could it be? It's still early in the morning.
Ye Chen asked himself as he got out of the bed to open the door. He could hear Gu Xi's voice from the other side.
Ye Chen opened the door. When he saw Gu Xi, he was stupefied.
The two 'buddies' of his had always specifically paid attention to their image. No need to mention Yu Xingzhe and the latest fashion. Gu Xi also devoted particular care to what he wore. He would never wear the same clothes two days in a row. His hair had to be done nicely. It was as if the moment he got out of the car, he had to be picture perfect.
But now, the Gu Xi before his eyes had messy hair, his clothes were wrinkled. He looked like a dispirited beauty who had just been bullied.
"What's going on?" Ye Chen was really worried and asked anxiously.
Gu Xi's voice was awfully hoa.r.s.e, "I'll take a bath first."
Ye Chen, "Go ahead. I'll let Xiao Liu buy some clothes for you."
Gu Xi, "Alright." Upon finishing his words, he went to the bathroom.
Ye Chen immediately gave Xiao Liu a call and asked him to buy some breakfast.
Xiao Liu acknowledged (the order) repeatedly. Ye Chen recalled that Gu Xi didn't like to drink soy milk, so he purposely told Xiao Liu. When Xiao Liu heard that Gu Xi was there, he promptly said, "Don't worry, I'll definitely buy things that will suit Director Gu's taste." All of them were old acquaintances, he knew what Gu Xi liked to eat.
After he finished talking, Ye Chen sent a message to Ren Jing. [I can't go to your place yet, something happened to Gu Xi.]
Ren Jing responded quickly. [Alright, no rush. Contact me if something happened.]
Ye Chen's heart softened. [Mm-hm, I'll contact you again.]
After taking a bath, Gu Xi came out wearing a bathrobe.
He actually felt much better after washing himself. Ye Chen immediately pa.s.sed on the gla.s.s of warm water to him.
Gu Xi drank a bit of it, but his voice was still hoa.r.s.e when he asked, "Have you eaten?"
Ye Chen replied, "Not yet, but I've already told Xiao Liu to buy some breakfast. He'll be here in a minute."
Gu Xi sighed gently as he leaned backwards and sat on the sofa.
This position exposed his neck. Ye Chen saw an extremely obvious hickey at a glance.
His heart thumped, then said with a timid voice, "You…you…"
Gu Xi didn't plan on hiding it either. He said softly, "I slept with him."
Ye Chen was so surprised he almost jumped. "You slept with Old Yu???"
Gu Xi, "…"
Death System, "…"
These two fathers would really like to beat their silly son to death.
Father Gu pressed his temples and said, "It's Shen Jiaze."
Ye Chen felt aghast. Still, he was trying his best to piece things together, so he asked as he breathed out, "What's the story?"
Shen Jiaze actually dares to do it…
Gu Xi didn't chop him off?
Gu Xi had a complicated feeling about it. But then, he really needed someone to talk to. In the end, he had no one else but his silly son.
Gu Xi let out a sigh. "Do you remember Shen Qingxu?"
Ye Chen was in a daze for a long while before he recalled who that was. "Shen Jiaze's (youngest) uncle?"
Gu Xi nodded.

Shen Qingxu could be considered as a living legend in their circles.
Moreover, Gu Xi was 'indifferent' to Shen Jiaze at that time. Even though the affair was fake, Shen Jiaze thought that Gu Xi definitely didn't know the truth. Yet even after he faced such a thing—his boyfriend 'cheating' on him—Gu Xi actually paid no mind to it.
There was no such thing as being magnanimous in love. If one was magnanimous, that only proved that they didn't love the other person at all.
In fact, it wasn't because they had a personality clash. It was more because Shen Jiaze had no choice but to use his ordinary self to get along with Gu Xi.
It felt as if he was being fried and roasted. It was burning hot all over.
The more Gu Xi tolerated him, the more terrible he felt, and the more severe his worries became… It was a vicious cycle.
Ye Chen patted Gu Xi on his shoulder. He really didn't know what to say at this moment.
Gu Xi said again, "He was dead drunk last night. He kept on holding me tight as he cried the whole time. He was crying without making any sound."
Just by listening to Gu Xi's explanation, Ye Chen could feel Shen Jiaze's despair.
Is there really no way out?
Ye Chen asked Gu Xi quietly, "What are you…planning to do?"
"I don't know." Gu Xi shook his head, his mind was in utter confusion.
Ye Chen took a deep breath and said, "Let's not think too much about it for now. You have to calm down first."
Gu Xi really didn't dare to think about it further. He didn't want to think about how he and Shen Jiaze had come over all these years leaving everything unsolved.
If they knew that things were like this, why in the world would they need to throw away so many years of their lives?
Ye Chen felt really distressed for Gu Xi, but some problems couldn't be eased with any words.
After finishing his breakfast, Gu Xi went to the guest room to have a rest.
Ye Chen himself wouldn't leave the house, either. He simply stayed at home and kept his eyes on Gu Xi.
At this moment, the doorbell rang again.
Ye Chen was wondering who had come again. He got up to open the door.
The moment Yu Xingzhe came in, he said, "What should I do, what should I do? SUN wants to resign! SUN didn't want to work for me anymore!"
