Secretly, Secretly; But Unable to Hide it (偷偷藏不住) by Zhu Yi (竹已)~ Chapter 64

The car just stops in front of the apartment complex. They both get off the car.

Duan Jia Xu stretches his body and moves his neck. He massages his shoulder then he goes to nearby pharmacy. He just takes an ointment randomly for his bruise.

Sang Yan walks behind him slowly and waits for him. He always be expressionless but this time because he is unhappy, he looks so cold. Moreover he is wearing black clothes. He looks even more terrifying.

The cashier couldn’t help but to glance at Sang Yan several times.

Very quickly Duan Jia Xu goes to the cashier to pay.

The cashier sweeps the barcode and looks at Duan Jia Xu’s split lip. She also notices the bruises on his face. She frowns and asks with a small voice. “Do you need any help to report to the police?”

Sang Yan clearly hears it, he immediately shoots a glance over.

Hearing her words, Duan Jia Xu is startled, he really wants to laugh but he is afraid that it would tear open his split lip even more. He just pays and says gently. “No need, thank you.”

Sang Yan goes out of the pharmacy first. Then Sang Yan looks at Duan Jia Xu’s face. “This little of bruises, supposedly it’ll heal even before we arrive at the detention center.”

“…….” Duan Jia Xu doesn’t make fuss with him, he just points to a small complex. “That one.”

Both of them go to Duan Jia Xu’s apartment.

He is living alone, so expect Sang Zhi, no one ever comes to his place.

The color of the house is much darker so Sang Zhi’s pink slipper is too eye-catching.

Sang Yan looks at it and laughs coldly.


Duan Jia Xu doesn’t have any intention to take care of him, he just says lazily: “You should just walk around with your bare feet.”

Sang Yan just thinks of himself as his family member so he just goes toward the fridge by the he enters the apartment. He takes a bottle of coca- cola. He takes a look at the fridge and then closes it again.

Sang Yan returns to the living room.

Duan Jia Xu is out of his bedroom, he is holding his laundry. Duan Jia Xu notices what Sang Yan is holding. He raises his eyebrows and says: “This.”

Sang Yan: “?”

“The snacks and drinks in the fridge and those things on the shelf.” Duan Jia Xu says gently and politely and says: “I hope that you would try hard to not touch it.”

Sang Yan doesn’t even look at him, he says lazily: “Your coca-cola is mixed with gold?’

“No.” Duan Jia Xu laughs. “But those are my girlfriend’s.”


Because of the change of status, it makes Sang Yan couldn’t be comfortable at the moment.

He glances at Duan Jia Xu and feels to lazy to mind him.

Duan Jia Xu enters his bathroom and takes off his clothes. He looks at the mirror, he notices that the corner of his lips is split. His left eye is swollen. There are bruises on his face.

He also has several bruises on his body.

He couldn’t be sure that it’ll disappear by tomorrow.

He thinks of the time Jiang Ying splashed a glass of water on him, Sang Zhi was so furious. This time he was much more miserable, he couldn’t guess how would she react.

Duan Jia Xu sighs and goes to take shower. He makes the water hotter to ease the pain. He takes a shower quickly.

The time he is out, Sang Yan finishes a round of his game.

Duan Jia Xu notices there are several finished snacks on the table. Sang Yan has eaten a lot.

Duan Jia Xu says nothing and just takes out the medicine he bought before. He applies it to his bruises and says: “When would you go back to Nan Wu?”

Sang Yan: “Not too quick.”

Looking Duan Jia Xu’s action, he says: “Why are you acting so weak, with this minor injury?”

“…….” Duan Jia Xu laughs: “It’s very painful.”

“Except the first one.’ Sang Yan leans back on the sofa and says : ‘When did I use my power? It’s only should only feel ticklish.”

Duan Jia Xu says nothing and lifts up his t-shirt. He applies all to the bruises.

“Tomorrow when Xiao Gui sees you, supposedly she would say that that i bullied you.” Sang Yan yawn, he sounds tired: “Come, I’m a fair person. I would let you beat me.

Duan Jia XU raises his eyebrows and says calmly: “Forget it, I never hit anyone. I couldn’t.”

Sang Yan: “I let you beat me, you should beat me. Why are you acting so slowly?”

It’s a three second silence. Duan Jia Xu puts away his medicine and just says: “Then stand up, it’s hard ot beat you if you are sitting down.”


The fight starts again.

But this time Sang Yan takes initiative to request to be punched. “Get this done quickly.”

Duan Jia Xu smiles: “I really couldn’t do it.”

Sang Yan is impatient and points to his face. “Make a fist and hit me here.”

Without waiting for him to finish speaking, Duan Jia Xu just punches him in the face.


Sang Yan is shocked, he just falls back few steps. He bumps the shoe rack. He feels that his one-side face numbs. It’s painful yet he says nothing. He just raises his thumb up toward Duan Jia Xu.


This matter develops in strange way.

Both of them are sitting down on the sofa and applies the medicine.

“I’m a bit regretting this,” Duan Jia Xu says “Now my hand is hurt too.”

Sang Yan puts a hot towel on his face and says expressionlessly: “Your energy is great ah.”

Duan Jia Xu laughs: “I really couldn’t do it.”

“Go away.”

Duan Jia Xu’s phone keeps on ringing.

Sang Yan could guess it’s a message from Sang Zhi. Duan Jia Xu finishes applying his medicine quickly then takes tissue to wipe his hand. After that he takes his phone to reply the message.

Sang Yan is annoyed: “Could you silent it?”

Duan Jia Xu looks at him and says lazily: “No, I couldn’t.”


“Why do I see that your phone is quite peaceful.”Duan Jia Xu says.


“Okay.” Duan Jia Xu notices it’s late, he stands up and says: “Tomorrow I still need to go to work. You do as you see fit. I will go to sleep now.”

“Wait,” Sang Yan says, “Let me borrow one underpants to wear.”


“Why? I just would wear it for few days then I’ll return it to you. Also,” Sang Yan sits down on the sofa. “Where would I sleep tonight? You shouldn’t ask me as a guest to sleep on the sofa right?”

It’s a silence.

After a while, Duan Jia Xu bends his body and points to his chest. He smiles and says: “I’m sorry, I’m not sleeping with a man.

“……. Could you stop make me feeling disgusted?” Sang Yan says.

Duan Jia Xu goes to take new set of toiletries, then goes back to his bedroom to take a set of clothes for Sang Yan. Then he comes out of the bedroom and throws all of it to Sang Yan. “I’ll go sleep, the living room is yours.”


Duan Jia Xu walks toward the bedroom and then says: “I don’t mean to disrespect you. Bro, but today I was beat so hard by you. So I need a rest.”

Sang Yan: “Go away.”

Duan Jia Xu then adds: “I’ll lock my door.”



After having a video call with Li PIng, Sang Zhi takes a shower and lays down on her bed. She keeps on sending messages to Duan Jia Xu. She tries to send one to Sang Yan but she notices that he still blacklists her so she just gives up.

Duan Jia Xu’s rhythm in replying is slow.

Sang Zhi thinks that both of the men should be talking so she doesn’t disturb them.

Sang Zhi plays game for a while and thinks, she wants to have a video call with Duan Jia Xu.

He doesn’t answer it.

Very quickly he sends a message: [ I don’t wear any clothes.]

Sang Zhi: “………”

Duan Jia Xu: [ Is it okay?]

Without waiting for Sang Zhi’s reply, Duan Jia Xu already calls her via video call.

Sang Zhi stops breathing and just hangs up. She frowns. “Couldn’t you wear any clothes right now? You don’t feel afraid to be cold?”

Duan Jia Xu just sends a voice message: “I’m too lazy to wear it.”


“You really don’t want to see me?” Duan Jia Xu says with a low voice. “It’s quite sexy.”

“……..” Sang Zhi is speechless, “you and my Ge were drinking?”


Sang Zhi is serious, she asks him: “Are you okay?”

Duan Jia Xu smiles and says: “I was scolded few times, It’s okay.”

Sang Zhi is relieved, she mumbles: “I just let him scolds you for few times, I’ll find a chance to scold him back few times.”

Duan Jia Xu : “Em.”

“Why does my Ge Ge come here so sudden?”

“Hearing from him, it seems that he just wants to see you.” Duan Jia Xu says: “Whether you are staying at the dorm or staying together with your graduate student boyfriend?”

“Do I look that careless?” Sang Zhi rubs her eyes and says: “Okay, if there’s nothing, I’ll sleep first.”

“Em, goodnight.”

“Then what would my Ge today tomorrow.” Sang Zhi suddenly remembers something. “Did he tell you when would he go back?”

“He said that he would be here for few days. Sleep, don’t need to mind him.


The next morning, Sang Zhi comes on time to the office.

Because she hasn’t completed the report forms, she is scolded by Shi Xiao Yu for a while. Possibly because Shi Xiao Yu has not enough sleep, today she is hot-tempered: “Do you want to quit? How could you not be able to do anything good?”

Sang Zhi thinks about it: “I think I do everything well?”

“Sang Zhi!” Shi Xiao Yu’s face is blushing red, she yells: “You think this is your house? You think the company spends money to employ you for you to play around? If you have no skill, just leave!”

Sang Zhi doesn’t know what makes her so angry today, she says seriously: “When do I ever play around when I’m working here? Moreover indeed I have no skill so I come over here to do the internship. I want to learn more.”

Shi Xiao Yu laughs coldly: “If you have no skill, then listen to me well. Whatever I ask you to do, do it. Don’t oppose me everyday.”

“Oh.” Sang Zhi says: “If you are reasonable, I would.”

“Didn’t you obey me at first? What happened? You couldn’t endure it anymore?” Shi Xiao Yu says: “Honestly I think. you look okay, you have a good achievement at school, why should you snatch away another person’s boyfriend? Don’t you feel sick of it?”


They are fighting about it. All the other co-workers are coming over to watch them.

Sang Yan lifts here eyes and says: “Whose boyfriend that I snatch away? Jiang Ying ah?”

“You know about it clearly.”

“I’m sorry. Before me, my boyfriend never even touched women’s hand.” Sang Zhi watches her eyes closely and says coldly: “Also, remember tell your friend to go to the doctor to check her mental health. Didn’t you watch how crazy she was that day? How could she keep on daydreaming everyday? Is she crazy?”

Shi Xia Yu is startled: “But she said……”

They make quite a loud noise, suddenly Zhang Hui comes over and says coldly: “What are you guys doing! Come inside now!”


Both of them are scolded by Zhang Hui

This period of time indeed he hears about how Shi Xiao Yu mistreats Sang Zhi. Zhang Hui is a straightforward person, he dislikes this type of action so because of this he warns Shi Xiao Yu aboout it.

Shi Xiao Yu starts to behave.

This fight makes both of their relationship fall to the freezing point, yet Sang Zhi feels more comfortable.

They are working together in harmony till the time to get off work.

Sang Zhi finishes her works and just passes it to Shi Xiao Yu. She doesn’t want to act anymore. She just pretends Shi Xiao Yu as an air. She says goodbye to her colleagues then leaves.

Sang Zhi and Duan Jia Xu are working today so no one takes care of Sang Zhi. At first they agreed to eat together for dinner at the nearby seafood restaurant. Now they need to take Sang Yan together with them.

She exits the office building and notices Duan Jia Xu. She runs over and asks where is Sang Yan. When she looks at his face, she notices the bruises on it.

“…….” Sang Zhi stops talking.

Duan Jia Xu holds her hand and says: “Your Ge goes over there first to take a table for us. Now we should go over too.”

Sang Zhi pursues her lips and could guess what happened last night. She tries to control her anger, she asks: “What happened to your face?”

Duan Jia Xu’s bruises and wounds start to heal. “I accidentally bumped something.”

Sang Zhi: “Oh, you should bump with Sang Yan’s punch.”


She looks at his face and turns her body quickly, she walks toward the seafood restaurant. She doesn’t look at him. “Don’t tell me that yesterday you just stood unmoved and let him to beat you.”

Duan Jia Xu coughs: “Not really.”

Sang Zhi: “Where did he hit you beside your face?”

“No. Just on the face.” Duan Jia Xu says.

She ponders on the validity of his words. She stops walking. She suddenly lifts up her hands and touches his stomach.

Suddenly she looks that Duan Jia Xu falls back few steps to avoid his touch. There’s a change in his expression too.

It’s obvious.

Sang Zhi is so furious: “I will kill him.”



The restaurant is quite popular, it’s quite full. Sang Yan is sitting on the table near the window. He is looking at the menu lazily. Then he notices that Sang Zhi and Duan Jia Xu are here.

The time he just lifts up his eyes, he feels that his neck is bound by something. He pants and coughs. “Wow.”

Sang Zhi says furiously: “You are over.”

Noticing Duan Jia Xu, Sang Yan immediately understands something. He says: “Before I get so angry, let me go.”

“This time I go home– NO, starting today.” Sang Zhi just pretends not to listen his words, she pinches his face again and pulls his hair. “I’ll talk bad to Mama everyday about your girlfriend. Don’t think of letting her be a part of our family, dream on! Yesterday what did I say to you…..”

Sang Yan pulls her arm: “You dare.”

“Why are you so unreasonable! Who asked you to beat him? It’s okay for you to hit me! But you….” Sang Zhi is so furious, her eyes are red. “How could you hit him so bad–! If I knew about it yesterday, I would report you to the police! I tell you! Starting today I’ll get into a dispute with me!”

Sang Yan takes a deep breath: “Let’s have a good talk.”

Then Sang Zhi just loosens her hand. She says with a hint of sob. “Sang Yan! You dare to bully my boyfriend! I want to severe my tie with you!”


She vents all of her anger, then Sang Zhi glares at him for a while then she goes to the restroom.

Duan Jia Xu clears his throat and pats Sang Yan’s shoulder. Then he follows her to the restroom. After a while, Duan Jia Xu is back and sitting on his seat alone.

Duan Jia Xu explains. “She is going to the restroom.”

Sang Yan massages his face and laughs furiously: “D*mm*t, later on don’t stop me, I really want to beat that Xiao Gui.”

Duan Jia Xu: “I would definitely stop you.”


“Why should you bicker with Xiao Gu Niang?” Duan Jia Xu helps to talk some good words about Sang Yan; “How could that kind of movement makes it painful for you?”

Sang Yan is so furious. “Hurry up go away.”

“Bro, let me see.” Duan Jia Xu seems to enjoy it, he laughs: “When do you have time just come and beat me up again?”
