A kiss.

       It was completely different from when he was rehearsing and filming—so raw and uneasy, yet brave and decisive.

       Zhuo Yue closed his eyes and trembled slightly, carefully and feverishly, like a sacrificial virgin, surrendering all of himself to the gods.

       When the warm breath came towards him, the man who controlled everything was stunned for a moment, and then silently curled his lips, without interrupting the rare boldness coming from his shy slave. The gentle touch lingered on the lips for a moment but received no response. Zhuo Yue opened his eyes shyly, looked at the other person in embarrassment and called, “Master.” He could not explain the meaning of this reckless kiss, perhaps he wanted more warmth from that person, or perhaps craving more attention and love, and at that moment, he couldn’t help but do so. When he looked at the other party, his heartbeat suddenly lost its rhythm.

       Fang Mingyan looked at him calmly, with many incomprehensible emotions in his deep eyes, as if they were hiding a stormy sea, yet also seemingly as calm as a still ancient well.

       Just when Zhuo Yue thought he had offended him and wanted to apologise, Fang Mingyan lifted his chin, leaned over and kissed him.

       Unlike before, this kiss had a strong sense of aggression. The man was like a predatory beast that did not give its prey any chance to escape. The palm of his hand gave the person under him more intense stimulation. While Zhuo Yue was gasping in pleasure, the man’s tongue easily and quickly invaded the wide-open mouth. His moans were blocked inside, turning into blushes and heartbeats, inducing ambiguous sound.

       Facing such a strong possession, Zhuo Yue had no ability to resist at all. The lips were crushed into an alluring red colour, and the tongues allowed themselves to be intertwined under each other’s control. The mixed hot and moist fluid soaked the lips, even dripping down the corners of the mouth during the intense movements. He couldn’t remember any of the techniques for breathing in a kiss scene. The air in his chest was exhausted little by little as if he was going to suffocate to death in the next second. However, what was even more unbearable for him was the almost overwhelming pleasure brought about by the man’s manipulation of his lower body, and his body was completely out of control.

       Just before the climax came, Fang Mingyan withdrew from his mouth and gave a command in his ear with a low voice, “Slave, I allow you to cum.”

       Zhuo Yue, who was pushed to the peak of desire, arched his back while trembling, whimpering with a cry. White turbidity spurted out, and in an instant, it seemed as if a huge firework exploded in his head. Colourful sparks flickered and fell slowly, eventually turning into a white mist.

       All his senses were lost, like lying on soft clouds, floating on a sea of ​​emptiness.

       Gradually, a subtle sound could be heard coming from the chest, one beat after another, intersecting with another similar frequency. His vision gradually became clearer, and he woke up from the trance of climax. He looked at the man who had been by his side and called softly, “Master…”

       Fang Mingyan wiped the water from the corners of his eyes with his fingertips, “Crying?”

       Zhuo Yue remained shy and silent. The sticky bodily fluids remaining on his lower abdomen made him curl up his legs in embarrassment. When he saw the white turbidity on the man’s hands, he blushed with shame.

       “Desire comes from instinct. You have suppressed it for too long.” Fang Mingyan twitched the corner of his mouth, “Go and wash up, and then prepare dinner. There will be two guests at home tonight, and you have my permission to get dressed.”


       Making dinner for four people was not difficult. However, Zhuo Yue was distracted during the process, and his mind was filled with the scene just now.

       He kissed him and he kissed him back. Everything became an infinite loop in slow motion, and every subtle expression, look, and movement of the man made him think about it over and over again. He tried to convince himself that this was just the most common way for master and slave to get along. Because he belonged to that man, he can do anything to himself. But there was an inexplicable expectation in his heart, hoping for something different to happen.

       Just when he was distracted, his elbow touched the plate placed on the edge of the cooking table. The plate lost its centre of gravity and fell to the ground, breaking into pieces.

       He was startled and immediately knelt down to pick it up.

       “Don’t move.” A deep voice came from the living room. Fang Mingyan walked over slowly, looked at the remains of the dishes on the floor, and glanced at him, “Don’t feel like cooking that much?”

       “No, I just…” Zhuo Yue wanted to explain but was interrupted.

       “If it’s not the case, why are you so absent-minded?”

       He lowered his head, “I was wrong.”

       The man found a thick rubber glove from the cupboard, picked up the large pieces, swept them clean with a broom, put them into thick garbage bags, and labelled them with hazardous materials. After everything was done, he said, “I will punish you to kneel for an hour before going to bed tonight. If you still can’t concentrate, I will let you kneel in the cage. You know what is there.”

       “Yes, Master.” Zhuo Yue replied, lowering his head.

       Zhuo Yue was bringing the last tomato soup to the table when the guest rang the doorbell. He glanced at the dining table again to make sure that the tableware was neat and without any flaws, then he hurried to the entrance and stood behind Fang Mingyan before he opened the door.

       “Really on time.” The owner of the house smiled and welcomed the guests into the house.

       “When you come to someone else’s house to have a meal, you have to be on time.” The man who came in first paused for a moment, then returned to Fang Mingyan’s face and raised his eyebrows slightly. The other person behind him said in surprise, “Hey, you’re not…” His eyes fell on the apron Zhuo Yue was wearing, and he swallowed the second half of the sentence.

       Zhuo Yue stood with some restraint, bowed his head and greeted softly, “Second Young Master, Young Master Xu.”

       The visitors were none other than Chu Yu and Xu Ye.

       Xu Ye helped Chu Yu remove his dark blue woollen coat, smiled at Zhuo Yue and said, “We meet again.”

       “Take the guests’ clothes and hang them up.” Fang Mingyan said in a commanding tone. This sentence clearly revealed his identity. Zhuo Yue did not belong as the guest and was under his control.

       Then, there was only one possibility left.

       Xu Ye’s eyes circled between the leisurely Fang Mingyan and the stunned Zhuo Yue, smiled meaningfully, and handed the coat in his hand to Zhuo Yue. The other person’s cheeks were slightly red as he took them.

       “It smells so good.” Xu Ye looked at the food on the table and moved his index finger, “I had to rush for a meeting at noon and didn’t eat enough. Now I’m starving, feeling like my front is sticking to my back.”

       “Then let’s chat while eating.” Fang Mingyan said.

       After sitting down one by one, Zhuo Yue served the three of them food and stood awkwardly holding his own bowl, feeling anxious. He could not face anyone other than Fang Mingyan as a slave, so he was afraid of hearing the ‘kneel down’ command. Fortunately, what he was worried about did not happen. Fang Mingyan glanced at him and said, “Sit down.”

       Zhuo Yue breathed a sigh of relief and sat down on the empty seat next to the man.

       Chu Yu habitually picked up vegetables for Xu Ye, and it happened that Fang Mingyan also picked up a piece of beef and placed it in Zhuo Yue’s bowl. The two of them moved in perfect synchronisation, just like mirroring each other’s movements. They found each other amusing, and smiles appeared on their faces.

       Xu Ye looked at Zhuo Yue who was silent and asked Fang Mingyan, “Because you haven’t appeared in the club for a long time, many Subs have come to me to inquire about your movements. How should I answer?”

       The man smiled leisurely, “With your intelligence, you must have a suitable response.”

       “I’m very stupid.” Xu Ye tilted his head, “Mr. Lion has always claimed never to meddle with newcomers, never to eat grass by the nest1not to take advantage of others, I leave it this way coz it’s more suitable for the Lion. So, until I hear your exact answer, I dare not speculate recklessly about the current relationship between you two.”

       “How did the Earl train you to be so scientific and rigorous?” Fang Mingyan brought the topic to another person with a half-smile.

       Chu Yu curled his lips, raised his eyes, looked at him, and said slowly, “In everything, we should dare to make bold assumptions but cautiously seek confirmation.”

       Fang Mingyan couldn’t resist the couple’s unanimous statement and said helplessly, “Okay, okay, I admit that I got involved with the newbie and bit the grass on the edge of the nest. Are you satisfied?”

       Zhuo Yue, who was sitting nearby, suddenly turned red when he heard what he said. He didn’t even have the courage to raise his head. He sat silently and stared at the rice in the bowl.

       Xu Ye, who finally forced Fang Mingyan to admit it personally, smiled broadly, winked at Chu Yu, and happily gnawed on the ribs. The three of them talked about work and entertainment, while Zhuo Yue listened quietly. When they heard that Hua Zhan from ‘The Goddess Strategy’ was shortlisted for the Best Supporting Actor of the Year award, their eyes widened.

       “What are the chances of winning?” Xu Ye asked.

       “Zero.” Fang Mingyan smiled, “The nominees with him are all veteran actors who have been working in supporting roles for a long time and are all popular with the audience.”

       “What a pity.” Xu Ye said with great regret, “Then don’t go to the award ceremony. There’s no point in watching other people receive awards.”

       Fang Mingyan smiled lightly, “For artists, getting attention is more meaningful than winning the award itself.”

       Xu Ye was stunned.

       Chu Yu on the side spoke slowly and asked: “When a young face appears among a group of old faces, who will receive more attention?”

       “I see.” Xu Ye picked up the wine glass with a smile, “It seems like it’s time to congratulate Zhuo Yue in advance.”

       Zhuo Yue picked up the beer glass in front of him and clinked it with him. When he was about to drink, the person around him took it away from his hand. Fang Mingyan glanced at him, “He shouldn’t drink alcohol these days.”

       “You’re not going to hurt someone without restraint, are you?” Xu Ye raised his eyebrows.

       The man laughed, “My skills are not that bad.”

       “Who knows if you might lose control for a moment…” Xu Ye continued to speak but was interrupted by Chu Yu’s slight cough. He saw the awkward and confused expression of Zhuo Yue sitting across from him. He realised that he had made a mistake and apologised with some embarrassment, “Sorry, I was joking. Don’t pay attention.”

       “It’s okay…” Zhuo Yue responded with a blushing face.

       “Go and prepare some fruit.” Fang Mingyan helped him out.

       Zhuo Yue immediately got up and went to the kitchen. Chu Yu glanced at his figure and said to Fang Mingyan, “The last time we met, he did not show the natural obedience of Sub.”

       They were all top-notch Doms, and they could often identify certain characteristics of people at first glance.

       The man put down the chopsticks in his hand and curled his lips, “Indeed. In order to make him obey, I had to use some drastic measures.”

       Xu Ye was stunned for a moment and remained silent. It was against club rules to force others to become Subs. As the founders of the club, Chu Yu and Fang Mingyan were both aware of the seriousness of this matter. Although it seemed like it was still a casual conversation at the dinner table, he could clearly feel the change in the aura between the two Doms. At times like this, he preferred to be a listener.

       “We all agree that BDSM must be based on the principle of mutual consent. The club’s rules also clearly prohibit forcing non-homosexuals to become Dom or Sub.” Chu Yu paused, “If it were someone else, I would directly submit it to the club’s senior management for processing, but for you, there must be your reason for doing this, and I want to hear the reason first.”

       “To treat PTSD.” Fang Mingyan answered calmly. (PTSD: Post-traumatic stress disorder)

       Chu Yu frowned slightly, thought for a moment, and asked, “Is it purely to just help the other party, or do you have other purpose?” They had known each other for many years, and they had a strong friendship with each other, so they didn’t have many reservations about each other, and the question was very straightforward.

       “At present, it should be considered the former.” Fang Mingyan smiled lightly.

       “With your ability, you can properly deal with PTSD. I’m not worried about those technical aspects. But one thing I need to remind you is that a novice Sub can easily develop feelings for their first Dom during training. Once he has developed feelings for you, will you be able to give him the response he needs?”

       Fang Mingyan did not answer the question but looked at the man who was peeling the apple in the kitchen silently.

       “Mingyan, I think you should think about it carefully. An involuntary Sub with PTSD is more complicated mentally than an average novice Sub. He cannot distinguish between emotions in the game and feelings in reality. For you, he is just one of your many Subs. But to him, you are the guide, and probably the only person he relies on and trusts. Every decision you make if you are not careful will cause harm to him, and even cause harm to him. It may again induce and aggravate his PTSD symptoms.”

       “I will handle everything properly.” The man raised his eyes and answered every word seriously.

       By the time Zhuo Yue brought the fruit to the table and sat down again, the topic had returned to the gossip in the entertainment industry.

       The industry was very deep. Celebrities and newcomers alike displayed their talents through various means, engaging in both open and covert struggles. There were always endless scandals and untold stories to tell. Zhuo Yue had always stayed aloof, indifferent to the affairs of others. Xu Ye asked him questions he couldn’t answer, but fortunately, Fang Mingyan was there. He was like a walking encyclopedia, knowledgeable about all the ins and outs of the entertainment industry.

       The meal was enjoyed in a harmonious atmosphere. Xu Ye seemed to think of something before leaving and said, “By the way, I want to change the spokesperson for my restaurant. Zhuo Yue has good culinary skills and a good image, which fits my criteria well.”

       “He won’t be making any announcements in the near future.” Fang Mingyan’s refusal leaves no room for manoeuvre.

       “Not in the near future, the current spokesperson contract will expire at the end of March. Then, we will formally contact Huasheng. It will not be too late to make a decision by then.” Xu Ye did not wait for the man to agree, turned to Zhuo Yue and said, “Zhuo Yue, if you are free, you can come to our house, we live in No. 8.”

       Zhuo Yue then realised that they lived so close to each other and said gratefully, “Okay, thank you.”

       “You’re not allowed to go.” Fang Mingyan tilted his head, put his hands on his shoulders, and said with a smirk, “How can I let you spoil someone bad who I have managed to train with great difficulty?”

       Zhuo Yue’s heart skipped a beat and his face turned red.

       After the two left, he started to clear away the dishes.

       The TV was broadcasting a Chinese romantic drama series. The male protagonist was none other than Lu Chenyang, galloping on the grassland with his horse and whip, performing a love-hate drama with the actress in his arms.

       He stared blankly for a while, then lowered his head to wipe the table, his lowered eyes covering up the loss and pain in his eyes.

       “Do you want to act?” At this time, a man’s calm voice came from beside him.

       Zhuo Yue raised his face and looked at the other person; his lips moved silently and he didn’t speak. It was a dark night outside the window, and the lights in the house cast a layer of soft light on the young and handsome face. Zhuo Yue just stood like this, looking at the other party with clear black and white eyes, seeming a little sad and a little hesitant. Like an ancient porcelain passed down for thousands of years, still perfectly preserved, he exuded a captivating charm that made people stop and admire, yet also evoked feelings of pity and compassion for his fragility.

       Fang Mingyan raised his hand, touched the side of his face and said, “Take your time, I will make you feel better.”
