Are You Addicted? Volume 2: Chapter 1 - Changes Eight Years After

Five hundred years the blue sea turned into mulberry fields (meaning the transformations of the world), eight years in a flash. 

For, eight years, Gu Hai and Bai Luo Yin are actually in Beijing. Among the crowd, these two people have been passing each other a few times, but never really met each other. 

Today is Bai Luo Yin's death anniversary,  Gu Hai went early to Bai Han Qi's house. Bai Han Qi has a new home because of the planned demolition of the old houses where he has lived. The Bai household has now moved to the building. Meng Tong Tian was already in high school. Gu Hai still often comes back to see Bai Han Qi and Aunt Zou. Each time he visits, Gu Hai will stand in front of Bai Luo Yin's portrait drowned in sadness. 

Since the Bai household moved to their new home, Gu Hai would personally clean up the rooms. From the day of the move, Gu Hai would help pack Bai Luo Yin's stuff and would argue with the porter each time a package is dropped carelessly to the floor. Bai Han Qi would sometimes look at Da Hai sitting on Bai Luo Yin's bed with a dazed expression. Every time, he was distressed and would shake his head. How much he would like to tell Gu Hai.


Bai Luo Yin is still alive. 

In fact, Gu Hai's heart clearly know that Bai Luo Yin is not dead and that he is still alive. There are many times Gu Hai would see Bai Luo Yin in some occasion, but in flash he was gone. Gu Hai clearly knows that this is not an illusion. In addition, Bai Han Qi would always refuse to tell Gu Hai the location of Bai Luo Yin's grave every time he asks reasoning that he do not want to let Gu Hai become too sad as a reason to avoid further question. 

***

At this time, Bai Luo Yin through his own efforts has become a good ground troop battalion commander. During the relief operation on the Wenchuan earthquake, the Pakistan peacekeeping operations, a series of rescue missions, and the army exercise contests, his name has been ringing in the entire aviation forces. But everyone knows the peculiarity of this junior commander, who can sleep without any bed, except that he always brings a pillow, whether it be a business trip or a task. This young major is stern, armed with strong military training, and rarely mentions his family, as if he had no human touch at all. Many people think that Bai Luo Yin was born to be a member of special forces. However, his colonel and closest to him, Liu Chong, knows that Bai Luo Yin repeatedly calls a person's name
"Gu Hai" whenever the batallion sleeps together in a tent.

During military joint operations exercises, Bai Luo Yin would led his team. The preparation of the exercise is being carried out in an orderly manner. This exercise fully draws on the experience of the Army. Preparations includes multiple rounds of independent confrontation training model and a thousand method of training systems, highlighting the commanding of combat; planning, command and control training, air collaboration, arms training and integration of new and traditional forces training. These training not only test the new mechanic combat capability, but also to transform the use of tactical innovation results. In short to improve the ability of troops to win the battle.

The headquarters of the command center has a big screen sitting in front of a row of people. The head quarter relied on Gu Wei Ting as the central figure for so many years. Now, Gu Wei Ting is getting old with his hairs graying, but his eyes still reveal a veteran wit and keen. He was proud of his troops and military achievements, but at home he tasted a bitter defeat eight years ago, a complete bitter defeat. He thinks that time can dilute everything, but Gu Hai's feelings for Bai Luo Yin has not even faded with the passage of time. Every time the two meet, the first sentence is "Where is Bai Luo Yin?" Because of this thing, there is also a gap between him and Jiang Yuan. 

***

Gu Hai attended the Central University of Finance and Economics Business School with his own effort after recovering from the accident.

Because of his interest in computer, scholarship from university abroad, and his father's preference, Yang Meng decided to go to a police academy. A few former classmates would often meet privately, but they would not mention about Bai Luo Yin. 

Gu Hai studied hard during college. As a result of his outstanding appearance and school performance, there were many girls expressing their love to Gu Hai. But Gu Hai did not even take notice of these girls. His heart, along with the disappearance of Bai Lou Yin, had long completely became frozen. 

After his graduation from college, Gu Hai founded his own company in Zhong Guan Cun (a technology hub in Haidian District, Beijing, China). Although this is all Gu Wei Ting's instruction, Gu Hai is not really grateful of his father. Gu Hai whole heartedly devoted his time to work with his college classmate, Yan Yajing. She has a long-time crush with Gu Hai. After graduating from the University, she resolutely gave up other good job opportunities. She decided to work with Gu Hai's company and then step-by-step 
worked to develop the business and enhance the company through the establishment of the HaiYin Group. The group is headquartered in Zhong Guan Cun. The company motto seemed to be out of tune with this huge group, "HaiYin will be extraordinarily tolerant of your presence." This is the HaiYin Group's concept of customer service. 

Since the group was just established today, Gu Hai was busy up and down the company. He is looking forward to meet all women that will form the company. This is a strange thing for a company, a company that only recruits women. However, the company has a policy that women could not tolerate, that is, you cannot fall in love. But because of the hospitality and generosity of Gu Hai's company, lot of people came here. Especially, the company is relying on this large number of women who can hold up a large number of days. Also since this is a "woman's place," there were more tongues (gossips). These women often speak their words outside their minds about their handsome but unusual boss, Gu Hai. Some of the staff joked that they feel that their boss is not interested in women. 

The company's listing ceremony is very lively, with lots of business and political guests attending. Gu Hai and Yan Yajing were busy attending the guests. 
Yan Yajing was always at Gu Hai's side directing the people and smiling each at other from time to timeNot far from them, a pair of eyes looked through the window. For so many years, he returned to this familiar city, where everything seemed to change quickly. Gu Hai is standing tall and straight, with face fulll of fortitude, his arms and shoulders wide, his smile charming. He got off his car to a nearby flower shop, bought a large flower basket, wrote a passage on the card and asked a staff in the flower shop to bring it to the nearby company celebration. He watched the staff take the flower basket into the company and then he drove away. 

Gu Hai was lazily sitting in a chair, looking at the computer desktop, "Yin Zi, today my company have expanded to this scale, at this time you should also be in a good condition! Yin Zi, where are you?" Gu Hai looked at the desktop wallpaper of him with Bai Luo Yin and then looked out the window. 

"Tired of this morning, right?" Yan Yajing gave Gu Hai a cup of coffee. Gu Hai sipped a mouthful. Yan Yajing glanced at Gu Hai's computer desktop. 

"Hey, it's been so many years, and you can not forget him."


Gu Hai gave a sharp stare at Yan Yajing. Yan Yajing evaded Gu Hai's eyes and shrugged to change the topic.

"Oh, you know our company has so much prestige now, and today someone sent a small flower basket, and hey! The card also directly wrote your name." 

"The card wrote my name?" The company's received a lot of business gift today, but it is the first time he encountered someone sent a basket with a card written "Gu Hai". 

"Take the card for me to see."


Yan Yajing got up and took the card. Gu Hai looked at the photo of Bai Luo Yin. 

"Hey! I do not think that you'll like this!" Yan Yajing said as she approached Gu Hai.


Gu Hai looked at her confused. 

"Gu Hai, so finally establish your business ah? This year, I hate myself for sending you a flower for the first time." Gu Hai was more confused.


When Yan Yajing held the card in front of Gu Hai. He was in complete shock. His hand was shaking. It was Yin Zi's handwriting! 

Eight years, eight f*cking years! This is what Bai Luo Yin's words are? He was alive! And he was alive!

Yan Yajing have never seen Gu Hai so excited. 

"Hey, are you okay?" Yan Yajing shook her hands in front of Gu Hai. Gu Hai turned over the back of the card, "Xin Xin Flower Shop" which is the nearest flower shop to the company. 

Gu Hai stood up and ran to the company's security department, Yan Yajing's mind was fogged with confusion. 

"Please check the surveillance videos, find out who sent the basket of flowers," the security personnel did not hesitate and immediately dug out the surveillance video. The flowers were sent by the 
flowers shop staff. For the company's event celebration in the past, the flowers were supplied by the same flower shop. Gu Hai tightened his lips, then ran down the floor. Yan Yajing still followed Gu Hai down and out of the building. 

"Boss, who booked the basket of flowers that was sent this morning?
" The shop owner went to see and greet the old patrons. Gu Hai was not paying attention to anything and has been asking about the morning's appearance of the flowers. 

"Age? Not old. More than 20 years old. A very young man, that is not much. He looks cold." Gu Hai took out the phone to show the shop owner the photo of the person. 

"You see, is this person?"

The boss looked. 

"Not like, but the eyes are quite like that, but I have forgotten,  there were too many people." Gu Hai thank the shop owner. As he was going back and he found behind him Yan Yajing smiling. He smiled back at her. Just as they are going out, they were stopped by the flower shop owner. 

"Yes, that time he also used a small phone with buttons, this is very strange." Gu Hai's mind hummed, he was sure it's Bai Luo Yin. His body was shaking and Yan Yajing held him. Gu Hai waved his hand, took out his phone dialed Bai Han Qi's phone. 

"Uncle, tell me, Yin Zi is alive? Where is he?" 

"Da Hai, ah, I do not know. I know that you love Yin Zi to the heart, but people can not be resurrected from the dead. You can not tell it from my heart?"

"I will be able to find him!" Gu Hai hung up the phone. 

He then gave a call to Gu Wei Ting," No matter where you hide Bai Luo Yin, I can find him. Even if you have the ability to hide him outside the planet."

He then hung up the phone, not giving Gu Wei Ting any chance to speak.

Bai Han Qi looked at Bai Luo Yin's photo, "Yin Zi! Dad is really trying hard to hide, ah!"

Are You Addicted? Volume 2: Chapter 0 - Prologue

Bai Luo Yin cried as  the car rapidly raced and  went away farther.   Gu Hai was still on bed and had been sleeping for few days.   When he opened his eyes, he called "Yin Zi!" He saw Gu Yang and Gu Wei Ting's face and also saw Jiang Yuan's crying red eyes.   "Luo Yin is gone because have saved you."   "No, he's not? Where is he?" Gu Hai grumpily said as he sit up.   "This is an evidence found by the public police." Gu Yang handed to Gu Hai a blood-stained jacket in a sealed bag. Gu Hai recognized that this is Bai Luo Yin's clothes.   The moment Gu Hai heard those words from Gu Yang's mouth, he felt that his days had fallen on him, but he could not believe it is true. Yin Zi is dead! When he saw the jacket, Gu Hai was shocked and his hand trembling. Jiang Yuan could no longer help but cry out. Gu Hai can not suppress his own emotions. He sobbed and soaked the bed with tears.   *** As he is already recoverin
