Starlight Soulmates

Part 1

“Compared to him you are the one I truly love.”

“…Surreee poodle shit, now go away. Cause I got things to do other than waste my time with your cheap words.”

“Ling, why…”

“I gave you a chance, but you blew it. I will not give you another one.”

Ling walked into his house as he slammed the front door into Xu Lang’s face. Yun was sitting on the couch when Ling slammed the door. His wide eyes looked at Ling.

“Uhh…just broke up with your boyfriend?”

Ling glared at Yun.

“I see…well…It was better to cut ties now than later. I mean, if this dangerous relationship continued any longer. Your future would have been seriously harmed.”

Yun tried his best to make a very seriously face while speaking to Ling. Ling just continued to glare a hole into Yun. Seeing that his speech wasn’t working, he just gave up and comforted him.

“Don’t worry man. Look at my aunt Mare. She’s a rich madam divorced from a sneaky old bastard, walking her dog, going clubbing, playing poker. I can hook you up with her.”

“I don’t think I want to date your aunt Mare a**hole!”

“I didn’t mean that! I meant I could hook you up with her to get you some cute little boy toy… if you want…”

Ling was burning with rage as he slowly walked towards Yun. Yun started to panic and hop over the couch, running to his room.

“Better stay in my room for awhile…” Yun mumbled to himself as he grabbed random snacks from the kitchen before hiding.

Ling just stood in the middle of the living room, trying to calm his anger. When he finally calmed down, he just sat on the couch and stared into space. He was in a daze, he didn’t think of anything as his mind was wondering. He sat there until dinner time, Yun started to notice the eerie silence and cracked open his door. Seeing Ling just sitting there, Yun felt sad and walked towards him.

“Ling. You okay? Have you eaten lunch or dinner?”

Ling didn’t respond. Yun let out a sigh.

“Brother Ling. You can’t be like this. You knew that Xu Lang is known to be the biggest playboy in the whole campus.”

Seeing that Ling still wasn’t responding, Yun went to the kitchen to make them dinner. While cutting the ingredients, a phone ring could be heard in his room. Yun placed the knife down and turned off the stove before going to retrieve his phone.

“Hello? This is Yun.”

“Long time no speak. How are you, Baby.”

Yun looked at the called ID before responding. He read, ‘Daddy’.

“…Nian…when’d you put your number in my phone?”

“Last time we met up. You were drunk and put my number as ‘Daddy’ remember.” Nian laughed as he recalled the memory.

Yun pouted his lips and replied, “Shut up. Anyways, did you need something?”

“Oh yeah, are you free anytime soon?”

Yun glanced at Ling.

“No, not right now. I need to help my friend, who just broke up with his cheating bastard of a boyfriend.”

“I see. Well call me sometime when your available. I got some information you were interested in.”

“Seriously?! Great, thanks! I’ll call you later. I’m busy right now so bye.”

“Wait. Aren’t you forgetting something?”


“A goodnight kiss.”

Yun’s face was covered in dark lines as he blushed all the way to his ears and neck.


He pecked the phone and before he hung up, there was a cheerful laugh from the phone.
