Was it that he… could not bear to open the gift?
Although he said he dislike it on the surface, in actuality, did he like it a lot?
Was this awkward little fellow feeling shy to say it?
That must be the case.
Hence, Mu Yichen snatched the gift from his hand again and pretended to be feeling aggrieved. "It's clear that you don't like it, so you don't need to force yourself."
Youyou was shocked. His lips twitched, but for a long time, he could not squeeze out a coherent line. "I…"
He clearly liked it a lot.
This was because, besides his mother, he had not received a gift from anyone else. This gift's packaging was so exquisite, earnest, meticulous, too. He had been carrying it with him everywhere. There were a few times that he wanted to open it but could not bear to do so.
He did not know why the idea was unbearable.
Was he just unwilling to destroy such beautiful packaging?
He could tell that this was gift-wrapped by hand – attention was paid to every detail.
Yichen looked at him expectantly and saw the struggle and complex look on his face.
If you like it, then say it.
Why was he always hiding his true feelings inside and not speaking them out?
He clearly liked the gift he gave very much; he could tell from his eyes, so why could he not say it?
Who did he inherit such an awkward personality from?
Under his expectant gaze, Youyou took a deep breath and opened his mouth but could only choke out a few words. "Then… forget it!"
With that, he coldly glanced at him. "I've never seen a person like you. You gave a gift, yet you take it back. Hmph!"
He turned to wear his pants and minded him no longer.
Yichen's lips twitched.
This little brother of his was beyond awkward.
Suddenly, with a sigh, he walked to his side and placed the gift back in his hand. "There; open it and see if you like it!"
"Not opening; why even bother?"
"Not opening? I'll help you open it, then!" He really started opening the present.
Seeing this, Youyou nervously stopped his action abruptly. "Wait!"
"What's the matter?"
"Forget it…" The younger lad pursed his lips. "Let me open."
He could not help but laugh at that.
This guy was really fun to tease.
Youyou saw him chuckling behind his hand and blushed, questioning in anger, "Hey! What are you laughing about?"
"Laughing at your cuteness."
"You're seriously sick." The younger twin snorted. Immediately pinching the ribbon with his fingers, he hesitated for a moment, then pursed his lips, and pulled it apart at one go.
He slowly removed the packaging, his face expectant and pious. Every action was carefully taken as he could not bear to spoil the cheap wrapping paper.
When he spied the solemnity and cautiousness on his brother's face, the older twin was beyond touched.
He… really cherished his gift a lot.
He could tell from his careful actions.
His heart warmed a little, as if a surge of heat had flooded it.
Youyou had already taken apart the packaging at this point. In the box quietly sat a violet crystal bracelet.
He widened his eyes in surprise. The mysterious purple sheen, the crystal's exquisite luster, and the unique design all made up for a very good-looking present.
He frowned as he found it to be very familiar. Suddenly, he bowed his head to land his sight on Yichen's wrist.
He saw that a crystal bracelet looped around his brother's delicate wrist, and it was the same design.
"Do you like it?" His older brother observed his face nervously.
