When I was five years old, I watched my dad being taken away by the police just like that. A policeman took me in, he let me stay at his house and bought me new clothes too. He treated me like his own son, even treating me better than he treated his daughter!
He told me to call him Uncle Chen.
I remember clearly that when I entered the house, I didn’t dare to look at her directly because she was so beautiful. At first, Chen Tingting would still play with me, sharing toys together and calling me ‘Ah Chao’ in one breath. But as we grew up, she gradually changed and became less interested in me.
Even in junior high school, I was inexplicably beaten up a few times. I was told that it was also Chen Tingting who found someone to move.
I didn’t dare to a*sociate my beating with Chen Tingting at that time.
But then Chen Tingting became more aggressive. She was openly looking for someone to bully me, and the way she addressed me at home changed from Ah Chao to some insulting words. I didn’t want to ruin the relationship between her and Uncle Chen, so I didn’t say anything to Uncle Chen.
It was only my tolerance that made her more and more reckless. Throughout the three years of junior high school, I was kind of scared of being bullied by her.
And since the beginning of high school, her body has become more and more outstanding. In terms of looks, she also became more and more attractive. In high school, she and I were in different schools. Whenever I was at home, I looked at her and couldn’t stop my eyes from falling on her chest. I would even fantasise about what she would look like after she had removed her clothes.
Once, when I got up to go to the toilet, I saw her changed panties in the bathroom.
I didn’t know what was wrong with me at the time, but I actually picked them up and sniffed them as a ghost.
“Jinchao, what …… are you doing? I can’t believe you’re holding my panties ……” she suddenly appeared behind me and looked at me with a completely unbelievable look. I had basically finished peeing by then, and my back was to her. As soon as I heard her words, all of a sudden I also realized how she had misunderstood me.
“It’s not what you think, really! Sister Ting Ting, listen to my explanation!” I said anxiously as I pulled up my trousers.
Uncle Chen came out with sleepy eyes on top.
Chen Tingting looked at his appearance, all of a sudden she cried and burrowed into Chen’s arms.
“Dad, that Jin Chao actually took my underwear and did that kind of thing in the toilet!” Uncle Chen listened to her words and looked at me for a moment. But I hurriedly explained, “Uncle Chen, it’s not like that, I saw that Sister Tingting’s underwear was left in the bathroom and I wanted to help her put it in the washing machine.”
When Uncle Chen heard this, his expression also relaxed. He started to comfort Chen Tingting and also spoke for me in front of Chen Tingting.
It was only Uncle Chen’s words that made Chen Tingting cry harder and harder.
Without saying anything, she just ran out of the house.
When she left, it was for more than a week. Uncle Chen was so desperate. Uncle Chen had basically contacted all her friends and cla*smates, but he still couldn’t find her. It was when Uncle Chen was in a hurry that Chen Tingting called back.
Chen Tingting’s request was – as soon as I left the house, she would come back.
But Uncle Chen refused, and Chen Tingting did not return.
It was not until a month later that there was news that Chen Tingting had returned to Canghai City University.
It was only with this news that Uncle Chen was relieved. Chen Tingting then called Uncle Chen and asked for money for living expenses and said that she would go back when the Spring Festival came around. Only then did this matter come to a temporary end. Uncle Chen’s frown was finally relieved.
But what no one expected was that when Chen Tingting came back at the Chinese New Year, she was unrecognizable and unrecognizable!
The impression I had of her before was that she was a pure, pretty girl. But for her return this time, she had dressed herself up in a flamboyant way. On her face, she was using some unknown brand of make-up. The mobile phone she was holding in her hand was also an Apple that Uncle Chen could only afford with a month and a half’s salary.
As soon as she sat down on the sofa, she either chatted very ambiguously with men – flirtatiously – or did her own make-up.
She didn’t say ten words to me in the course of a Spring Festival!
Uncle Chen got angry at her and had a big argument with her at home, asking her how she got to be in this state. But in between another argument, she was very powerless and crying. She pointed at me and questioned Uncle Chen: Why do you treat me so well and asked him if he had ever considered her feelings?
Uncle Chen was frozen, he didn’t know how to answer.
I tried to apologise to Chen Tingting after Uncle Chen had gone to bed. But she wouldn’t open the door. Very much lost, I went back to my room, but it wasn’t long before she instead pushed the door to my room and walked in.
I looked at her and my first reaction was to get excited for a moment. But it was the way she was dressed that made me not dare to look straight at her.
Her body was beautifully developed, but she had only a loose jumper over her body in winter, exposing her long, straight and white legs to my view. She was sitting backwards in a reclining chair with her legs between the backrest and facing me. And I was blushing for a moment.
She said she wanted to talk to me for a while.
I nodded and apologised, saying that it was because of me that I had affected her relationship with Uncle Chen.
But she shook her head.
She said to me that she actually understood Uncle Chen. Although she no longer had a mother, I was the one who no longer even had both parents with me. She said I was a poor child. She came towards me and just hugged me with her warm arms. I leaned against her chest, but it made me even more nervous.
Her body was soft.
It was like it had no bones!
She said that since she was a little girl, she had always treated me as if I were her own brother. Said I could feel it if I didn’t believe her. I was a bit curious and asked her how I was going to feel it. Instead she just took my hand and pressed it against her shirt.
“My heartbeat, do you feel it?”
That’s what she asked me then. I blushed even more because of her action and I didn’t dare to respond to anything. I subconsciously had to pull my hand back.
I asked her if she wasn’t cold dressed like that.
Instead, she said to me that the warmth from my body could be transferred to hers. That was enough!
She continued to hold me. We remained silent for a while, and then she made a move that I never expected.
She kissed me with one mouthful!
The softness of her lips, the softness of her sensations, took over my mind. I hurriedly pushed her away and I said, “Sister Tina, we can’t do this!”
But she asked me in return, “Why? She said she liked me, couldn’t she rely on that?
I laughed dryly and said, “Sister Tingting, don’t make fun of me, how can you possibly like me?
But she looked at me very seriously.
Instead of answering me with her words, she continued to come towards me, continuing to seal my mouth with her soft lips. To be honest, it was the first time I had ever been kissed and I was overwhelmed.
In the process, her little hands were wicked.
I couldn’t stop it.
I couldn’t stop her from doing it, and the way she moved made my body go out of control. I knew in my heart that I shouldn’t have done it. But I still held Tina Chen down. I looked at her, so nervous that I couldn’t help but swallow. And there was a struggle in my head. Do I, or don’t I ……
My hands were pressed right next to her shoulders. I looked at the snowy white scene in front of me and my head exploded.
I hurriedly rolled out of the bed, covered Chen Tingting with the blanket, and was ready to get out of the door. But she grabbed my hand and asked me back if I thought she was dirty. That was not what I was thinking about, and I told her no.
She asked me instead: if not, why did you choose to run away?
I avoided her eyes and told her: I don’t want to do anything wrong to Uncle Chen.
But she said to me, “This is what you want, what is there to be sorry for? She put her arms around me and whispered in my ear that she just liked me. She rea*sured me that if I didn’t feel at ease, she could take me outside and find a small hotel, not at home.
I was somehow desperate to say yes. But just as the words were about to come out, I pinched myself hard to clear my head.
I refused her anyway.
She let me go too, but said between walking out of the room that she would give me time to think about it, and that I could come to her if and when I thought it through. As long as it was before she went back to school. I lay in bed, asking for the scent she left behind on the bed, but I was very shamefully under the covers, working it out for myself.
Early the next morning, Uncle Chen didn’t notice anything unusual and called me up for dinner as usual.
After breakfast, Chen Tingting broke the rules and said she wanted to drag me out with her. When Uncle Chen heard this, his face was surprised for a moment, and then a satisfied smile appeared on his face. He gave us two hundred yuan and told us to have a good time outside and to just call if we came back for dinner.
But we had spent much more than the two hundred dollars over the course of the day. Just from Chen Tingting taking me to Starbucks, that’s nearly two hundred in expenses!
In front of her, I was like a child from the countryside, just being led around by her. When it got dark down, she even told Uncle Chen that we were climbing a mountain at night and said she would take me to see the sunrise. Uncle Chen didn’t think much of it at the time, so he agreed to it with a full heart, and told us to be careful.
Only Uncle Chen didn’t realize that Chen Tingting simply just took me to the movies and took me to the bar.
It was a crazy day and we were simply having a lot of fun.
“It’s getting late, let’s find a hotel to stay in.” Chen Tingting and I suggested. But her words instantly reminded me of what she had said last night. I was silent, so I acquiesced. At the front desk of the hotel, she just asked for a room, though it was a double room.
She told me to go and take a shower first.
During the process, I was rushing to release myself in the bathroom, I didn’t want to do something that would make me feel guilty later.
We had both had a bit of wine.
After turning off the lights, I wanted to hurry to bed. But she was quietly climbing under my covers, from the other bed. Her body was a little cold and I gave her a fright.
I tried to get out of bed in a hurry, but I fell to the floor in a heap.
She looked at me and suddenly burst into tears. She asked me if she was so horrible that I had to react so badly.
I didn’t know how to comfort her.
I sat on the edge of the bed and couldn’t stop apologising to her. I told her all the worries I had in my mind. The pressure in my heart was also mainly on Uncle Chen’s end. But when she heard it, she said that she didn’t even care and asked me what I minded. And that Uncle Chen wouldn’t even know about what happened tonight!
I didn’t know what to do, I didn’t even dare to hug her!
In the process, she was the one who took the initiative and leaned into my arms. While she was crying, she was talking to me about what was in her heart. In the darkness, she suddenly kissed me on the lips, with the salty taste of tears.
Gradually, she took over the rhythm.
I had even forgotten how I had started and ended with her. She played the role of life’s mentor, guiding me along the way in the darkness. There were twists and turns in the process, and in her own way, she helped me dissolve them bit by bit to get me on the right track.
It was nearly five o’clock when we left the hotel.
I was in front of her, practically shy.
And she laughed at me. I asked her what she was taking me to at this hour. But she said with a smile, “To see the sunrise, of course!”
She said that she didn’t care so much, she just took me and stopped a taxi and hurriedly went in the direction of the city. The taxi took us straight up the road to the highest point on the outskirts of the city, ‘Chi Chu Mountain’, because it was much easier to get a car. She pulled me to stand by the side of the road.
For the early morning was the coldest time of the day.
I grabbed her hand and couldn’t stop puffing on it in my palm to warm her up a bit. She laughs at me. It was after the sun came up that she took her Apple phone and was just posing with me in all sorts of moves, just taking pictures. And that’s more pictures taken together this morning than all the pictures between us put together!
She asked me to take some really beautiful photos of her against the sunrise.
I couldn’t find the right angle at first, but she showed me how to do it, so I got the hang of it.
She was still a bit dissatisfied with the photos, but that was about as good as I could get. She was stretched out against the guardrail on the side of the road. Even though she was dressed in thick clothes, her pretty figure still looked like it was calling out to me. I looked at her and couldn’t stop my mind from going back to her in bed.
My old face flushed.
She asked me what was wrong and I was shaking my head hurriedly, anxious to hide it from her.
She said I was honest and didn’t say anything, just played with me for a while. When we were tired of playing, she leaned against the guardrail and looked at the sunrise, her face suddenly heavy: “Chao, if something happens to me in the future, will you protect me like my father protected you?”
“Of course I will!”
I nodded with certainty.
“Then there’s something …… eh, or forget about it, let’s not talk about it.”
