Summer Drowning - Chapter 11
[Translator: Zacky, Proof Reader: Beka Whoosh]
The third summer is Xia Mian and Li Li’s last summer at the villa.
The three students who came to the villa were from last year’s “original class”, which is why Tan Min came again. Qiu Xiaochen was three years old that time and he brought a stack of homework every week, and write an 800-character essay under Xu Xin’s supervision.
Qiu Xiaochen likes to move a small table in front of the glass door on the first floor with it facing the grape rack in the courtyard. Sometimes just sitting or lying on the ground pondering.
Tan Min knew about he is bad in Chinese, so Tan Min took the initiative to ask him, saying that she often took the first place for Chinese in high school and she could help Qiu Xiaochen.
Xu Xin asked him to try with a set of writing templates that she compiles. The words were more interesting and direct than the one that was sold. It really made Qiu Xiaochen improve from 0 points to such a high score.
Qiu Xiaochen was so fascinated by the Omega sister that he went out from his way and try to mix with her and the time seems to stop for Xia Mian. Tan Min turned her eyes on Qiu Xiaochen, and she also had much less time to pay attention to Xia Mian and Li Li.
Xia Mian and Li Li became more presumptuous and got entangled every year. Now even if Li Li stayed in Xia Mian’s room all day, and slept in Xia Mian’s room at night, it would be no surprise to others.
This summer is a rainy summer, with thunder and lightning every few days, and a sunny day has become rare. Once it clears, the people in the whole house will come out, racing against time to feel the blazing sun.
“Let’s go swimming!”
Qiu Xiaochen suggested on one sunny weekend.
Tan Min echoed him: “I want to swim too. I want to swim in the summer, but the teacher’s house doesn’t have a swimming pool. Where can we go swimming?”
The villa originally had a swimming pool, but it was bought for Xu Xin to have a place for peace of mind. Later it was developed into a place to entertain students during summer vacation. She usually doesn’t live here. She lives in the city centre with her husband and Qiu Xiaochen. A swimming pool in the villa is not as easy as planting grapes and flowers. There is also a place to set up easels for students to sketch in the yard.
“I’ll think about it…”
Qiu Xiaochen took out his mobile phone and called his father. After discussed with his father, he asked for a driver and two cars to take them to the comprehensive gym in the city centre, which has the largest swimming pool in the city.
“Everyone is going together. I think it will rain again tomorrow. I will seize the opportunity. I don’t have time from Monday to Friday!” Qiu Xiaochen slapped his thigh in a hurry.
He has been making some improvements in his writing, and Xu Xin has always wanted to reward him and appropriately relax his learning pace. Seeing that he found his husband and arranged it, he supported him and said, “Okay, you should go together. The stadium is newly built and has three different pools. It should be fun.”
Qiu Xiaochen said, “I asked my father to prepare two cars so Brother Mian and everyone can go too”
He still doesn’t know which two words is Li Li’s name. “When I heard it for the first time, I heard it as “Lili”, and I wondered why a man had such a feminine name.”
(T/N: lol thought about that too, Qiu Xiaochen, just joking :p.)
“You can go up and call them.” Xu Xin said.
“I can’t shout.” Qiu Xiaochen knows himself too well, “The two of them stick together and will not move or let others disturb them. Mom, can you shout for me ?”
“Well, I’ll shout.” Xu Xin remembered back these past summers. This summer, knowing Xia Mian’s temperament, she also felt that Qiu Xiaochen was impressed by it until he can’t even call Xia Mian like always so, he just went to the kitchen and poured two cups of iced tea by his own, and let herself went upstairs to call Xia Mian.
Tan Min smiled and followed her: “Teacher, I will go with you. I have something to do with the senior.”
“Come on.” Xu Xin very fond of her. “Then you can bring tea to them. Things given by peers are always better than what the elders give.”
Tan Min smiled sweetly: “Then I will take your suggestion.”
Xu Xin smiled and curve her eyes, joking with her all the way, and walking slowly to Xia Mian’s room.
Xu Xin knocked on the door: “Xiao Mian, I want to talk to you, is it okay to open the door?”
Even though they spend a long time in the room, Xia Mian and Li Li are not even tired of having sex together all the time.
Xia Mian moved the large leisure wicker chair by the window to the computer and he sat on it while letting Li Li sit in his arms. He hugs Li Li to use the computer and kiss Li Li as soon as he lowered his head. He could even lick him if he wanted to do it. It’s very convenient when you put your hand in the clothes and every part is craving to be touch.
When Xia Mian played a game, Li Li would stay in his arms to watch. He doesn’t know how to play and doesn’t like to play so he just watches Xia Mian plays the game. He couldn’t understand Xia Mian when he was programming, so he took a small hard-shell notebook and pressed it on his knees to draw a sketch. When he was tired of painting, he read a book or leaned on Xia Mian to sleep.
The moment Xu Xin knocked on the door, Xia Mian was playing the latest action game. Starting from the highest difficulty, Xia Mian played so seriously and Li Li also watched with full attention.
The sound of “Tuk Tuk” broke Taoyuan Township, and the breath of reality poured in. When Xia Mian released the mouse and keyboard, the game character died immediately, and the words “game over” jumped out. He picked up the panicked Li Li with one hand and put him on the ordinary seat at the other side. He then raised the big wicker chair high, gently put it back, and replaced it with the computer chair.
(T/N: broke Taoyuan Township means broke the peace)
After doing this, he did not blush or breathe and opened the door calmly.
“Dang dang—it’s me, surprised!” Tan Min stood in front, smiling with two cups of iced tea.
Xia Mian looked at Xu Xin behind her by mistake and refrained from frowning.
“Mom.” He called out, and ask the two of them to come inside.
Li Li stood up and shouted “Hello, Teacher Xu”, and then greeted Tan Min.
Tan Min quickly looked around the room, walked to Li Li’s side and put the iced tea on the table. She moved closer to the display screen, and pointed to the game interface above and said: “oh you’re playing a game. It turns out that what Xiaochen said is true. Programming is just a disguise, you are secretly in the room—”
She paused, then looked at Xu Xin with hindsight, covering her mouth in annoyance, “Oh, what am I talking about. Teacher, I’m actually talking nonsense.” ……”
Xu Xin’s face was clear: “Xiao Mian himself has a sense of measure. He is a computer learner, so he can play a little while studying. But Li Li, you have to restrain yourself. Your most recent exercises are all done in one shot. After you’re done, hand it to me one by one. If you keep doing this, it will lose the meaning of practice. You have to reflect on it.”
Li Li flushed, took a peek at Xia Mian, nodded and said, “I see, teacher.”
Xu Xin is not a fierce teacher, she immediately said in a soft voice, “Today weather is nice, I came up because Xiaochen wanted all of us to go swimming in the city. He only rests for two days a week. Xiao Mian, his father already ask the driver to pick him up. Will You and Li Li get ready and go with him?”
Xu Xin rarely asked Xia Mian and Xia Mian couldn’t say “no” to her mother, so he said, “Okay, how long will we go?”
Tan Min interjected, “I decided to stay there overnight. Because it is a large-scale comprehensive stadium and tomorrow happens to be a music festival, and Xiao Chen wants to see it.”
Xia Mian said, ‘Then I will pack up and bring a change of clothes.’
The young man must pack his things, and Xu Xin left the room first. Tan Min slowed her a step and did not forget to call Li Li to go out together: “Senior, let’s go back to the room together. Do you have a swimsuit? I have already brought it, but you don’t seem to bring it, and you don’t have sunscreen. I can lend it to you for you to use. Omega must pay attention to sun protection.”
Li Li remembered that Xia Mian asked him to stay away from Tan Min last year, and said: “I have something to do, you can go downstairs first.”
Tan Min smiled friendly: “Then I will wait for you, Ah.”
Li Li couldn’t help it. Seeing that Xia Mian hadn’t spoken all the time, he thought he might not need to stay for a while, so he just left with Tan Min.
At one o’clock in the afternoon, the car arranged by Qiu Xiaochen’s father arrived as scheduled. Xu Xin’s three students and the two sons, a group of five people, ride in two cars.
“Sister Tan Min, Brother Mian and me, the three of us are sitting together.” Qiu Xiaochen made arrangements naturally.
Tan Min immediately agreed, and the other classmate had no objection. Xia Mian didn’t speak, and Li Li couldn’t snatch his brother from him, so he also said “OK”.
The driving was nearly two hours. Been separated for a while, and the time passed in the blink of an eye.
The other cars drove in front while Li Li and his classmates were droved behind. He chased the car in front with his eyes, but it was a pity that the windows were impervious and nothing could be seen.
Tan Min is also an Omega, would Xia Mian like her pheromone? Just as he inexplicably “started” with Li Li, he can also “start” with other Omegas, without warning and reason.
Li Li closed his eyes with a headache starting to throbbing, no matter how much he blinked, he couldn’t use up these two hours to shut his eyes.
One of the three swimming pools in the gymnasium is open-air and two are in the hall. The outdoor area is not used for competitions, and the area is extremely large. People gather together to play, but there is no dumpling-like crowding.
(T/N: no dumpling-like crowding means that even when the city folks went to the gym to play, there was never an instance where it was as packed/crowded as dumplings)
Qiu Xiaochen put on swimming trunks in advance, took off his clothes and jumped into the water as soon as he entered the place.
Alpha and Omega have to wear special pheromone shields to enter the pool. Alpha is a bracelet type, and Omega is a neck ring. You must put your ID card on it, and then add 300 and 700 yuan as a deposit.
Li Li has never been to a public swimming pool, or even the most formal type one, the municipal gymnasium. He doesn’t even know how the system here. He also spends money to buy swimsuits at the store inside the gymnasium, with only a small amount of cash.
The embarrassment of taking a taxi in the first year made him learn to take a bank card to go out. In the year 2000s, there was no mobile payment. Swimsuits could be swiped. The deposit was only cash. He only had to go to the ATM on the street to withdraw money. At this time, Tan Min is waiting. Everyone has gone through the formalities to enter the pool.
The goods in the gymnasium are twice as expensive as those at the shops outside. Li Li painfully chose the swimsuits, and finally took a pair of swimming trunks worth more than 100 yuan. When he went to pay, he found that Xia Mian was sitting on a lounge chair by the checkout counter with a packaging bag beside him.
“You… why are you doing here?”
Xia Mian saw him, and then he looked at the swimming trunks in his hand: “I bought them for you, put the swimming trunks back.” The swimsuit he bought was an Omega unisex one-piece style, with a translucent blouse on the outside. The more cloth the more expensive the price is, this set will cost nearly 400 Yuan.
In the second year of part-time work, Li Li’s wallet has grown a little bit, and he has made some money so he knows that it is difficult to make money. Xia Mian’s money was not brought by the wind, so why should he be extravagant when it can be saved?
Li Li squatted: “Swimming trunks are all you need, this is not necessary… please return it, can I just buy this one?”
Xia Mian fiddled with the bracelet-shaped shield on his wrist and looked at his chest: “The hickeys are everywhere. The trace is too visible. I just played with your nipples last night and the redness has not disappeared. Who do you want to show in your swimming trunks?”
People come and go in public. Xia Mian’s words were explicit and direct. Li Li was irritated by him and his head was congested. He remembered the traces all over his body and the swollen breasts after being overly caressed. He dully felt ashamed: “…After this, I will withdraw the money and return it to you.”
Xia Mian was slightly indifferent: “It’s up to you.”
Li Li mortgaged his ID card and 700 yuan in cash and got the collar pheromone shield.
The collar is not deliberately made into a collar but is based on conservative considerations from a safety perspective. In the early years, Omega had frequent rape incidents in public places, and Omega’s access to open public places was restricted for a long time worldwide. The advent of the shielding device broke the deadlock, but its shape and side effects, as well as the ethical and moral issues that followed, hindered its promotion in daily life, and only used in public places such as swimming pools and medical purposes.
Li Li wears a collar and a one-piece swimsuit, which looks conservative at first glance. But this kind of swimsuit is tight-fitting, the lower body is very short, and it is all exposed from the base of the legs, but it highlights the ups and downs of the hips. The upper body blouse was semi-permeable, and the waistline was faintly exposed, and the shoulders were dropped loosely, leaning to one side from time to time, asking Li Li to pull it often.
Xia Mian wore swimming trunks, and his good figure for fitness made him quite eye-catching. Qiu Xiaochen saw him from a distance and threw over with his swimming ring.
Tan Min followed him and knew how to swim, so she purposely starts slow and got ahead of him.
“Ah…” Tan Min shyly covered her eyes, “The senior dress is very cautious, it’s too revealing.”
She was wearing a bikini swimsuit with a light gauze of the same colour around her waist, with slits on the side. With the waves drifting in the pool, the legs are looming, looks very sexy.
Qiu Xiaochen was very satisfied with Tan Min’s swimsuit: “No, no, swimming in summer is to show off. You can wear such a good-looking swimsuit because you have a good figure. He is a man. You can’t expect him to wear a bikini. ”
Tan Min laughed and said, “Don’t say that, it sounds lustful, you’re a minor high school student!”
Qiu Xiaochen took the water and patted it on his face, and admitted his mistake: ‘I was wrong, sister.’
Their conversation started to get Boring as Xia Mian bypassed them and jumped into the water from the edge of the pool, where the water was 1.5 meters deep and he could even walk on the ground.
Looking back, Li Li ran to the climbing frame nearby and stepped on the stairs to enter the pool. He lowered his back, his hips are cocked when viewed from behind, his leg muscles are tight, and his whole body lines are visible.
Xia Mian swam towards him and hugged him by his waist.
He turned his back to the pool, and at first, he couldn’t see that it was Xia Mian who was holding him. He wowed and struggled. After seeing that it was Xia Mian, he hugged him with both hands, shivering against his neck, and muttered: “It’s too cold…”
Xia Mian swam with him in his arms: “just swims for a while, later it won’t cold anymore.”
Li Li moved his limbs tremblingly, and as expected, the cold quickly disappeared.
Xia Mian put him alone, holding the edge and treading on the water. He then swam to a depth of two meters and five meters, wanting to swim back and forth twice.
He dived into the water and was about to cross the buoys between the shallow and deep waters, suddenly Tan Min appears, not knowing where she came from, she spits out a bunch of bubbles into his face.
He floated up, and Tan Min came out of the water, fluffed her drenched hair, smiled and said, “Are you going to swim in the deep water? I want to go too, but I can only swim 50 meters in freestyle. Can you help me? I can’t swim anymore and give me a hand, okay?”
“No.” Xia Mian refused, “borrowed.”
“Eh, wait a minute.” Tan Min grabbed Xia Mian’s wrist, leaned over, and slipped herself. She rubbed her skin against him, “I mean it’s too obvious you know? I always talk to you, but you are always so indifferent. Let me put it straight, I think your pheromone is reassuring, reliable, and learned. It’s another profession I look forward to, and I like you in every aspect.”
She pulled the broken hair on her cheeks and tucks it behind her ears, her innocence faded away, and she replaced it with a sophisticated and calm understanding of men and women.
“You and Li Li did it. Beta can’t feel it, but I am Omega. He always smells of you, sometimes thick and sometimes weak, sometimes all over the body, so thick that he will feel weak when I get close to him. You guys must have done it. This can’t be wrong. It must be more than once I bet. But I don’t mind if you have done it with others. Isn’t Alpha and Omega like this? The sex hormones fit together and you can reap happiness from that. Everyone in the villa praised my pheromones, only you did not. You may not know the difference between female Omega and male Omega, you just have to try it once with me and you will understand how good I am for you…”
Tan Min’s self-confidence stems from the sexual attraction between Alpha and Omega. She is attracted to Xia Mian’s pheromone, so she believes Xia Mian will also be attracted to her, and she is happy to enjoy the convenience brought by instinct.
Xia Mian could see this through a glance.
He was deeply bored and pulled Tan Min’s hand away, showing undisguised disgust: “You made a mistake. I am the child of my mother and her ex-husband, have no blood relationship with her current husband. She can raise students and the villa. It’s her husband’s money. My biological father owes a lot of debts and tends towards violence. Are you sure you like me? You have to catch a man first. Qiu Xiaochen is your target.”
Usually, he is always calm and indifferent. Xia Mian is polite and stable, with a sense of distance, infinitely close to a mature male. But this time, Tan Min had never seen him look gloomy, his words were awkward, and he showed disrespect for his parents.
Tan Min’s face was slightly scared, and a little angry: “You can reject me, but don’t scare me. If you don’t agree on what I want, just let it go, but I know about you and Li Li, so you’d better treat me politely.”
Xia Mian didn’t care: “You can tell me to go out and try. Li Li and I do it because we like it, and being discovered is just a bit less fun. And you have no right to say that your teacher’s son has a relationship with the students, because if you did how would she sees you?”
