“Gu Zhun was clearly a provocative little minx in the past. Why was it that now…” Zhang Heng sighed again, leaning against the office chair and going through documents for the meeting while involuntarily recalling the scenes from that year.
The school that Zhang Heng transferred to had weekly swimming lessons. Every time swimming lessons came around, Zhang Heng would nervously sneak glances and use a persuasive tone to comfort himself: “Thin as a stick. Pitiful…”
“Go to the locker room and change now. After changing, come out and gather together to do some warm ups!” The physical education teacher passed down his instructions and the students headed to the locker room in small groups. Zhang Heng also entered the locker room, guided by the crowd of familiar students.
Zhang Heng found the cabinet that matched his student ID number and stored his personal items, he began to change his clothes. Coincidentally, Gu Zhun was right beside him. Gu Zhun paid absolutely no mind to the awkward atmosphere in the surroundings. Everyone was a teenager undergoing puberty, so it was inevitable that they would feel embarrassed, although Gu Zhun unexpectedly did not care about it. He just minded his own business and changed his clothes, even automatically blocking the nearby naked Zhang Heng from his view. Gu Zhun was in a complete state of detachment and transcendence. He was in his own world and he couldn’t care less about what others were doing.
While they were changing, the rest of the guys were also discussing the female students’ breast sizes and comparing them. Little Fatty from their class said, “I feel that the class monitor’s swimsuit is really cute! I thought she would wear something really conservative. I didn’t expect that it would actually be a two-piece! That waist! That chest!”
A lanky guy beside fatty patted him with his hand and tauntingly said, “You are green and inexperienced! Pretty sister Lin’s tight fitting one piece is the best. That exquisite and well-proportioned body~ Being tightly confined by the constraints of the swimsuit fabric, that perfect curve emerging right before your eyes, yet you are unable to see anything inside! There is a certain mysterious charm of having to suppress your desire, wanting to feast your eyes yet being unable to! That is truly the best!”
“Wow……that’s right!” Several of the boys could not help themselves from fantasizing about that lithe body. Even though they were the creme de la creme of the elite class, they were still healthy, able-bodied boys.
The Racing God of Mount Akina who was extremely familiar with such topics made his debut right at that moment.
“Tsk tsk, you guys can’t even tell what is good. If you ask me, a triangular bikini is definitely the most attractive! Although you have already seen the majority of the body, you are unable to see the most crucial bits, the parts you want to see most but simply can’t! At the same time, there is a mix of mystery and sex appeal. The combination of both—now, that’s the best!”
“That’s right! Didn’t expect that classmate Zhang would be so familiar with it! Hahahaha!” The boys naturally gave a warm welcome to a fellow comrade that shared the same sentiments with them. Soon, Zhang Heng and his classmates were getting along heartily.
In the midst of the hubbub, Gu Zhun started taking off his white sports shirt. He crossed his arms to grab the hem of the shirt. When he raised his arms to lift his shirt up, his head got stuck as the collar was small, revealing the smooth and tender fair flesh which was exposed to the air. As Gu Zhun was suffocating and trying to lift his shirt up, the two adzuki beans on his chest were slightly trembling.
Zhang Heng got a full view of Gu Zhun in that appearance. It was only after Gu Zhun managed to remove his shirt with much difficulty that Zhang Heng turned his head away, pretending he did not see anything.
I seem to hear the sound of an engine…
Everyone began doing stretching exercises after they changed into their swimming attire. There was only Zhang Heng who ran to the cold swimming pool and went all out splashing cold water on his body. “Must remain calm…”
The physical education teacher arranged the whole class to form small groups for practice, each group consisting of two people. Due to studying all the time, Gu Zhun had not made any guy friends and was stuck alone. Coincidentally, the newly arrived student Zhang Heng was left out too, unable to find a partner. The two of them naturally formed a group.
“Do you know how to swim?” Zhang Heng felt that since they were paired up for practice, it would be better for them to be clear on each other’s strengths. Only then would training be effective. He felt that since Gu Zhun had a lean and slightly streamlined figure, he should know how to swim, right?
Gu Zhun shook his head and said, “Don’t know.”
Zhang Heng said, “Good! You are very honest, a promising seedling.”
Zhang Heng had Gu Zhun put his hands on his forearms. Then, he had him lay his body flat, relax both his legs, and slowly adjust to the buoyancy of the water. Gu Zhun listened and followed accordingly. Zhang Heng brought Gu Zhun along as he walked in a straight line, letting him try paddling the water on his own. After practicing for about 10 minutes, Zhang Heng said, “I am letting go, so try to swim on your own for a while.”
“No.” Without the slightest bit of hesitation, his suggestion was rejected.
Zhang Heng did not know whether he should laugh or cry. Gu Zhun had seemed so cocky before, so now he knew how to be afraid?
Zhang Heng said, “I really am going to let go. If you don’t want to die, then try to float by yourself.”
Sure enough, Zhang Heng let go. Having lost his support, Gu Zhun started paddling with his legs in a panic, but his body still continued to sink. Upon seeing this, Zhang Heng reached his hand out in a hurry to fish him out. “Didn’t you know how to float just now? You should be able to float!”
“I don’t know how to. I want you…”
What?! What do you want with me?!
Gu Zhun started choking before he was able to complete his sentence. It turns out he had opened his mouth when he was submerged, causing the pool water to rush in, leading to the non-stop coughing now.
Zhang Heng temporarily ignored Gu Zhun’s unconscious coquettish manner and raised his hand to report this to the physical education teacher, requesting to send him to the school infirmary.
Zhang Heng carried Gu Zhun up in a bridal carry, walked to the changing room, took both of their things, and walked out of the swimming complex after casually covering both himself and Gu Zhun with a towel each.
There was quite a distance between the natatorium and the school infirmary. There weren’t many signs of struggle from Gu Zhun along the way, but his expression still exposed his unhappiness.
Even if it was for a good reason, being carried by a man was still embarrassing if anyone saw them.
“What is it? Looking at me that way.”
Gu Zhun shook his head and said, “Nothing. Put me down.”
It was as though Zhang Heng was able to guess Gu Zhun’s thoughts as he said, “Are you shy about being carried by a man?”
“It’s good that you know.”
A straight and fast strike. Such a candid boy…in that short moment, Zhang Heng felt that Gu Zhun was an adorable dork.
“Do you still want to go to the school infirmary?”
“That’s not necessary. I feel much better. I will go back to the dorms myself.” After he finished speaking, Gu Zhun wanted to grab the bag that contained his clothes, head back to the dorms, bathe, and change.
Zhang Heng pulled at the bag, not letting Gu Zhun walk away as he said, “Classes are about to end now, so if you don’t mind other people—especially girls—seeing you walking around naked in your swim trunks, then by all means, go ahead.”
“…” This method was obviously very useful!
“Accompany me.” Zhang Heng couldn’t tell whether the tone Gu Zhun used was an asking one or a commanding one. But even so, Zhang Heng accompanied him all the way back to the dorms.
You are so straightforward, I cannot refrain myself from liking you….adorable little dork.
