Love Delusion: Chapter 49

Lin Anran shouldn’t have given his body over to Shang Hao last night, especially to a sex monster who coveted him for so long. At first, Shang Hao seemed to be calming and relaxing. And, although he was eating his tofu, he didn’t go too far.

Then he touched it and even enthusiastically rubbed the little carrot into releasing.

What was even more surprising was that he himself actually reacted under Shang Hao’s nose.

Last night, Lin Anran unlocked new knowledge and postures. He believed that if he continued like this, his virgin body that had been preserved for more than 20 years would fall.

Lin Anran thought of the experience last night. He felt bad and was in an endlessly bashful mood. He was holding Shang Hao’s glass jar in front of him. Based on Shang Hao’s behavior last night, he didn’t know whether he should carefully take one heart out or put one in.

If he put more in, the hearts in Boss Shang’s jar would be far ahead of his. Lin Anran looked at the two jars and sighed. Then he began to draw a heart on the table.

Feeling someone approaching behind him, Lin Anran straightened up, and Shang Hao leaned over and kissed him on the cheek from behind.

Boss Shang was dressed in a suit and was about to head out to work. Although he didn’t say anything, he kissed a mouthful of Lin Anran’s right cheek.

A kiss was equal to a heart, and Lin Anran would have to pay as much as he was given. He tried to stop and asked helplessly, “Why are you kissing me again?”

Shamg Hao thought for a moment and said, “I don’t know.”

Then he kissed him again.

The always docile little lamb Lin Anran backed up and covered his face, shaking his head while looking at Shang Hao pitifully, not letting him come closer.

If he continued to kiss him like this, the already heavily indebted Lin Anran would really have no end in sight.

His resistance aroused strong dissatisfaction from Boss Shang. He arrested him on the spot and kissed him dozens of times, like a machine gun. Only when he was satisfied did he let him go.

Lin Anran covered his face and drew another heart for the jar.

No more kissing! This child can’t afford it!

“I will be back later today.” Shang Hao told him. “Ranran, remember to miss me.”

He went out to work.

The two jars were exactly the same size. Compared to Shang Hao’s jar, which was steadily filling up, the pitiful pieces of paper in his jar wasn’t even enough to fill the bottom of the jar.

His jar looked like an underachiever who frustratingly fell short.

Lin Anran glanced at the two glass jars next to him from time to time when he was drawing a draft today. When he fell into a daze, Pengpeng suddenly appeared, looking for him.

Pengpeng asked, “Are you there, Lin Anran?”

He looked at the phone for a good moment before finally replying, “Here.”

Pengpeng didn’t contact him to make small talks. He brought Lin Anran the sudden news that one of their class teachers in high school was having a birthday next week and his classmates were discussing plans to meet. They wanted to ask him if he would go.

As expected, Lin Anran’s first reaction was to think up an excuse to reject them.

Pengpeng said, “I knew you wouldn’t go. I already told the monitor, but he insisted that I contact you anyway and bring you a message, which was that your classmates were asking about you and wanted you to go.”

Lin Anran was at a loss. He remembered that he was very withdrawn in high school and wasn’t close to anyone. It was only after going to university that he became acquainted with Pingping.

Pengpeng asked him, “They suddenly care about you so much. How likely do you think they know that you are with Shang Hao?”

Lin Anran: “…I don’t know.”

At the same time, he gaze locked suspiciously on Pengpeng.

Pengpeng became excited. “On the conscience of Heaven and Earth, I really didn’t say anything, I swear!”

“Forget it, are you sure you don’t want to go? Then should I help you refuse the squad leader?”

Lin Anran said thank you and hung up the phone.

High school classmate…He didn’t seem to remember who they were now.

Lin Anran settled dinner alone. Shang Hao had said that he would come back late today. Lin Anran waited and waited on the sofa by himself and was slowly slipping into sleep.

It was almost eleven o’clock but Boss Shang was nowhere in sight. At this time, Lin Anran suddenly received a message from Assistant Xu.

Lin Anran picked up the phone and took a look. Mr. Xu said that Boss Shang was at a cocktail party tonight, and he drank a bit more than usual. He was now in the car with Boss Shang.

Since Mr. Xu said, “Drink too much”, then Boss Shang must have drunk more than a little tonight. Maybe he was already drunk and unconscious right now.

Lin Anran cheered up. He sat up on the sofa, got up, and went to the kitchen to search for honey. After a while, he would make a cup of warm honey water for Boss Shang to drink.

He heard that people who are drunk must drink more water to relieve their headache when getting up early the next day. He just didn’t know how drunk Boss Shang was.

In his impression, Shang Hao’s alcohol consumption level was pretty good, and Lin Anran had never seen him drunk.

After finding him the honey, he waited in the living room for a while. Finally the sound of the key came from the door, and Lin Amram quickly got up to open the door.

Shang Hao was standing outside the door, still holding the key in his hand.

The strange thing was that, apart from the breath of alcohol he could smell when he opened the door, he couldn’t see any signs of drunkenness from Shang Hao’s body. From the way he looked to his posture, he still looked the same as he did when he came home everyday from work. His face was even flushed red with drunkenness.

And Assistant Xu didn’t accompany him up. He could still open the door by himself with the key.

Lin Anran began to wonder if he had misunderstood. After all, Assistant Xu didn’t often send him messages…As Lin Anran thought this, the hand that had reached out to give Shang Hao a hand stopped in midair.

Boss Shang waved his hand to indicate no, and he stepped in through the door by himself.

When he passed by Lin Anran, the scent of alcohol became stronger. It seemed that Shang Hao had drunk a lot. Lin Anran followed Boss Shang and closed the door. As soon as Boss Shang took off his coat, he subconsciously caught it from behind.

Lin Anran was judging whether he was drunk or not. He must admit that something was off. Today’s Shang Hao was very quiet and didn’t speak much. He walked in calmly, took off his coat, walked to the sofa, sat down, and looked around the living room.

Lin Anran hung his coat aside. Shang Hao didn’t speak, so he had to ask, “Are you okay?”

Shang Hao turned his head and glanced at him. Lin Anran was inexplicably nervous, and said, “…I thought you were drunk.”

Shang Hao said, “I wasn’t drunk.”

Seeing that he seemed uncomfortable, Lin Anran turned around and wrung a hot towel back to him. After thinking about it, he went to make him a cup of honey water.

When Lin Anran returned, Shang Hao, who was tall with long legs, was leaning lazily on the sofa, with the hot towel on his forehead.

He still seemed uncomfortable. Lin Anran put the hot honey water on the table and sat down beside him in a worried manner, waiting to receive Boss Shang’s towel.

Lin Anran didn’t dare look at him face-to-face right now, so he changed to observing Boss Shang’s condition.

Shang Hao frowned.

His head was heavy, and in this state, it was easy for people to lose their minds and not think much. The world seemed to be immersed in water, chaotic and uncertain, emitting random ripples that blur his line of sight. But his body was hot and dry. He lifted his heavy eyelids and glanced at Lin Anran.

When Shang Hao suddenly opened his eyes and glanced at him, Lin Anran froze. He felt as if he’d committed a crime sitting on the same sofa as Boss Shang.

Shang Hao looked at the person staring at him with dark, clear eyes for a long time, and then slowly opened his mouth to speak. His voice was a little more slurred than usual, and he finished speaking a little awkwardly, “What is your name?”

Lin Anran was dumbfounded. “…What?”

“You,” Shang Hao said. “What is your name? Where do you live?”

Lin Anran was stunned. You’re not just drunk! Brother, you are very drunk!!!

Perhaps it was Boss Shang’s perseverance that allowed him to maintain a normal state of calm capable of bluffing people. Lin Anran was completely bluffed.

He was shocked for a while. Now he knew what was going on with Shang Hao. On the one hand, he had a high tolerance for alcohol and it was not easy for him to become drunk. On the other hand, even when he was drunk, he didn’t appear drunk. These two states were enough to confuse his audience and to confuse the enemy.

This entire body was imposing, like clothes he put on, and the sense of superiority he carried had already become a natural aspect of his bearing.

Speaking of slurring, this was the first time Lin Anran saw a drunk person who didn’t seem drunk at all.

Suddenly Shang Hao took hold of Lin Anran’s hand, wrapping it completely in the palm of his hand. Shang Hao was still leaning on the sofa, sluggish, but the posture he used to hold him was unambiguous.

Shang Hao kept staring at him, like a stubborn child staring at a target.

He pondered for a moment. His Adam’s apple rolled, and he suddenly said, “Where do you live? I’ll have someone pick you up later.”

Lin Anran was dumbstruck. He didn’t know how he should react. This man really forgot about him.

Even if, right now, he couldn’t remember that he was someone else’s family’s president, wasn’t it a bit too late for Shang Hao?

And you are so good to the little boy outside?!

This made him a little bit unhappy. Really, only a little bit. Lin Anran finally couldn’t help but questioned Boss Shang, “Do you really not remember me?”

Boss Shang was really drunk and refused to listen to him. Holding his hand, he asked Lin Anran seriously, “Are you single?”

Lin Anran was angry.

Anyway, the drunk Shang Hao was still Shang Hao. It didn’t matter. Lin Anran took a deep breath, and questioned him in his soul. “What about you? Do you have a boyfriend?”

Right now, Boss Shang seemed to be very honest. He thought for a moment in confusion and said, “Me?…There seems to be one.”

Lin Anran didn’t know why, but this made him feel even more angry.

Lin Anran finally succeeded in getting truly angry with the drunk Boss Shang, and because of his lack of bad words, he couldn’t figure out how to sulk at the scene.

In the end, the overlord left the concubine, turning his back on her declining flight.

That being the case…Lin Anran looked at Shang Hao, and asked Shang Hao angrily, “Then, won’t your boyfriend be angry with us like this?”

I’ll help you remember! Lin Anran will beat you!!

Shang Hao then tried his best to recall his boyfriend’s face in his mind. Hmm? He clearly remembered…

“Where is your boyfriend?”

The already cold towel fell from Shang Hao’s forehead. He didn’t bother to pick it up and just tried to keep his eyes open, to continue gazing at Lin Anran’s face.

In that case, don’t blame him for being rude. Lin Anran’s anger made him courageous, and he calmed down enough to silently float the bait into Boss Shang’s mouth, “Then what do you think about this person ‘Lin Anran’?”

It was said that everyone would speak truthfully after drinking. He wanted to know whether his position in Shang Hao’s heart was merely that of someone who could be forgotten so casually.

Hearing those three sounds, a slight smile appeared on Shang Hao’s face. It was the kind of smile that carried a deep meaning.

Shang Hao slowly said, “He, beat me.”

Lin Anran: …

So you know you will be beaten!

Now he really wanted to beat you!

But Shang Hao still held onto his hand and asked if he had a boyfriend.

Lin Anran didn’t plan to deal with this drunk anymore. He shook his hand and introduced himself earnestly, pausing after every word. “Right here. I am your boyfriend.”

This person dared to secretly hook up with others outside and was now caught on the spot. He witnessed him cuckolding him. How did it feel? Confess, Beauty Shang.

As he expected, Boss Shang had a noticeably stunned expression on his face, and the look in his eyes as he stared at Lin Anran also changed.

Lin Anran also stared at him closely.

It was as if he was witnessing a firework blooming in slow motion in front of his eyes. Shang Hao’s eyebrows and the corners of his eyes were suddenly stained with great joy. The light in his eyes rose, and the corners of his lips couldn’t be restrained from curling up, as if he had monopolized with great advantage and swallowed the greatest sweetness.

He couldn’t be more happy. In that second, it felt like celebratory fireworks had gone off in his consciousness. Extreme joy agitated in his chest, and a sense of satisfaction swelled throughout his entire heart.

It was very quiet for a moment. Shang Hao opened his mouth, but said nothing, and finally he leaned down slowly. The two of them were still holding hands, and he gave Lin Anran’s hand a kiss.

He was bent over in front of Lin Anran, as if unable to get up from this position. He continued to stick to his hand, as if he had been given the greatest gift. Instead of anger, Lin Anran suddenly felt a little at a loss.

Shang Hao said vaguely, “Thank you, thank you.”

“…Thank you for being my boyfriend.”

Although he couldn’t name this person, he liked him so much. The frequency of his heartbeat wouldn’t deceive him. The moment he saw this man, he became obsessed with him. Seeing those eyes, he would be triggered instinctively.

Thank you for being so good and willing to be my boyfriend.

He didn’t know why, but after hearing his silly words, Lin Anran suddenly couldn’t be angry anymore.

Also, there was no need to thank him so much… Lin Anran was very embarrassed. Forgetting that he’d been angry, he wondered if he should say “no need for thanks.”

Xixi: I always scoff at the idea of love at first sight, but this novel just gives me this subtle sense that they have been soulmates across many lifetimes, and so the progression of everything made perfect sense to me.

I think some people are so transparent, that it’s possible for love at first sight to happen. I think I remember seeing this one old couple explaining how they met their loved one at a party and they just knew it in one day that they met the one they wanted. Then the next day they decided to get married. And they’ve been married for 60 years 😮

Quite crazy, but it seems to happen. And with our very simple and lovely boy Lin Anran, apparently you really only need one look to figure out if you’ll fall in love or not 🙂

Ahhh, I love this story so much~
Thanks for the chapter! 😘

I believe in love at first sight but how long the relationship can last, depends on how much effort is put into maintaining it 🙏

Tbh, while love at first sight seems improbable to me, attraction is a different story. However, I do think that when you have deep feelings for someone, be it romantic, friendship, or familiar, these feelings will not disappear because of “memory loss”. For example, there are many elderly people who have forgotten stuff, even forgotten that they were married, but when they saw their longtime partner, they were attracted to them all over again. Of course, that’s not the case for everyone. In the end, we do have to wonder what exactly attracts us to other people when we see them for the first time: is it their appearance, their behaviour, their “aura”?

I had a ‘love at first sight’ once before. It felt like my brain was screaming “this is not logic!” but my heart had full control of my body. After 6 months, my brain finally won and I ran away as far as I can.

Love at first sight does exist. I experienced it once and i know several ppl who did. I think the french term is more appropriate “Coup de foudre” meaning “lightning strike” and it did feel that way for me. It has been 30+ years now and i still remember how intense it was. It was a rare and precious moment of my life 🙂
