Chapter 15

       Xu Ye didn’t answer. He looked at the milk in front of him, and unconsciously thought of the cup on the coffee table at No. 8 in Hanguan. That night, naked, he was held by the masked Chu Yu, and they talked a lot as equals. He put his head on the man’s chest, he could hear the man’s steady and powerful heartbeat in his ears, he could smell the refreshing aroma of the man’s body on his nose, and he could feel the warmth of the man’s embrace on his skin…


       Memories poured back like a flood, scrubbing every little detail that he had wanted to forget to an incomparable clarity.


       The two times they met, it was only between dom and sub, it was only for the sake of desire.


       But why did he think of him every moment he was lost in thoughts in the past four days?


       The man’s hands, his eyes, the way he held the whip, the man’s voice in his ears…一everything was like a torrent that drowned him. The irritation in his heart that had nowhere to go grew stronger and stronger, and he did not even know whether this irritation was towards that person or himself.


       Xu Ye slammed the glass of milk on the ground in frustration. The glass shattered into pieces, and the splashed glass shards attracted the attention of many people, causing the brown-haired MB sitting beside him to shriek. The person in charge of the bar heard the sound and slapped the brown-haired MB in the face, apologising repeatedly.


       Liu Jing smiled, and said, “It’s alright, let someone clean up a bit. Young Master Xu is not in a good mood today, so let’s get some smart boys to serve you.”


       “No need, I’m not in the mood.” Xu Ye frowned and took a sip from the glass of wine on the table.


       “You’ve only just recovered a little, don’t mess around with your body again.” Liu Jing waved all the people in the private room to retreat, leaving only an MB named Lin to brew a pot of scented tea for them.


       Lin was Liu Jing’s dedicated MB, so his name is not on the list, and he did not have to take other customers. This situation would continue until the day Liu Jing decided to end the sponsorship. Lin was 29 years old, which was considered older compared to other MBs, but Liu Jing liked his understanding of the situation, the understanding of when to advance and to retreat, his gentleness and courtesy, and his submissiveness in bed, so he had never asked for a replacement. At this moment, Lin put away the two cups of tea and quietly withdrew.


       “What’s going on that you’re so upset about?” Liu Jing asked, and then added, “It’s okay if you don’t want to talk about it, I’ll sit with you for a while and we’ll talk about something else.”


       “I’m a pure sub.” Xu Ye suddenly said.


       “I know, that’s why I found a lot of connections to help you get tickets to that circle.” He paused, “It’s just a different way of finding fun, why should you care what others think.”


       “I don’t care about that.” Xu Ye’s eyes were a little empty, “I found a suitable dom who is strong enough yet gentle enough and skilled enough to make me happy and satisfied…”


       Liu Jing was stunned for a moment, and said, “Since everything is good, what are you still dissatisfied with?”


       “I couldn’t go on after the identity of each other was revealed..”


       “Who is he?… A hooligan, male prostitute or something like that?”


       Xu Ye didn’t respond and fiddled with the lighter in his hand. Liu Jing knew Xu Ye was reluctant to say it, so he patted him on the shoulder and said, “It’s a matter of mutual consent. Since you know he’s not suitable, just dump him and find another one. Although there are only a few doms with good skills, it’s not like there weren’t any. Why you keep hanging yourself on the tree1It is a metaphor for being persistent and self-inflicted; only clinging to one person or one road, refusing to let go, and not using other methods or choosing new ways to solve problems?”


       Xu Ye propped his head with his hands, was silent for a while, and then suddenly laughed, “You are really doing a good job of thinking.”


       Liu Jing saw him making jokes and knew that he had finally come around, so he chatted with him for a while before leaving.


       The next day Xu Ye went to the company early in the morning to take care of the business that had piled up due to his sick leave and kept himself busy through work.


       He showed up at the club around eight o’clock on Saturday night.


       Compared to the cramps and nervousness of his first visit here, he was much calmer this time. He sat down in an open spot by the window and talked to people who approached him to get the information he needed. At the same time, his gaze moved through the crowd, looking for his target.


       He had to be of an acceptable appearance, not shorter than himself, not too obscene in appearance and preferably didn’t have a sub for the time being…Xu Ye had cross-checked each of these requirements and found that it was difficult to find a suitable dom. Just as he was looking disappointed, a few people came through the door, causing him to freeze his gaze and subconsciously hold his forehead to shield his face.


       The five people who came in with him were the same ones he had seen on the circular sofa last time. Just now, he specifically inquired about their names.


       Marvin, the man on the far left, was a well-recognised skilled one in the circle, nicknamed ‘Lion’. His whip technique was very famous in the circle. Today he was followed by a new slave, young and well-behaved.


       The man next to him was about thirty-five years old, known as ‘Pharaoh’, a founding member of this club, he didn’t speak much and was very respected. It was said that his bonding and restraint could make the sub mesmerized, and he occasionally gave public lessons and instruction. This time his slave did not wear a harness on his head, showing his entire face. To Xu Ye’s surprise, the slave was a tall man wearing glasses, who looked like an executive of some financial institution.


       The two walking on the right completely use the names from the cartoon ‘Tom and Jerry’, Tom and Jerry. They were in a fixed partnership, both of them could freely switch between dom and sub, and rarely took on other slaves.


       And walking among them was a man called ‘Earl’ with a black feather mask. He was the second youngest of the Chu family and the owner of this club, with a strong presence and great skill.


       They were the rule makers, the ones who stood at the top of the whole circle. Those group of people was always popular, and every time they appeared, they would definitely attract the attention of the entire crowd. Only Xu Ye lowered his head nervously to avoid him. He didn’t know what he was hiding from, but he didn’t want to make any eye contact with the Earl.


       He heard several people around him whispering.


       A said, “I heard a few days ago that the Earl had taken on a slave, and he’s dumped him after only a few days?”


       B shook his hand, “Rumour has it, the Earl hasn’t taken anyone in ages.”


       C interjected, “Who dares to spread rumours? A year ago a red-headed boy came around saying he was the Earl’s man, and do you know what happened to him?”


       “The one named Vic?” B thought for a while and said, “I seem to have heard of such a person.”


       “Yes, it’s Vic. One night he sneaked into the Earl’s special room when he was too drunk, and no one knew where he got the elevator card… Anyway, he woke up the next morning and begged the Earl to be his dom, but the Earl did not agree. Later there was a period of time when the Earl didn’t come to the club, and Vic was here making a show of his authority, going around saying he was the Earl’s man, asking the club to give him a special suite, and even beating a member with old grudges to him into the hospital.” C’s gossip information was quite comprehensive.


       “Shit, that’s a lot of nerve.” A was surprised, “How could the Earl let it go?”


       “Of course he didn’t.” C shook his glass, “I still remember that night, the Earl had Vic tied up in the middle of the venue, and then brought out a long whip. That’s when the guy panicked and begged for mercy. The Earl then said something…” He deliberately kept his mouth shut, and made the two people around him anxious before he spoke again, “He said, ‘If you can still stand up after five slashes, I’ll spare you’. Then he lifted the whip and lashed it. The scene at that time was really… Vic’s chest was torn open, and covered with blood. After the fourth whip, Vic passed out. Later, he was sent to the first aid, and then he was removed and I never saw him again.”


       “My God!” B said in amazement, “That bloody whip on the display is not the same one he used, is it?”


       C nodded, “That’s right, that one. He asked someone to put it there. From now on, no one dares to be presumptuous in the club.”


       A said, “It is said that the Earl accepted a newcomer last week. When I was leaving on Saturday night, I saw him coming down the stairs. Although he was alone, the mask on his face was taken off.”


       “It seems to be true.” B blinked, “It is said that the Earl only plays one-on-one, and when he has a fixed sub, he will take off his mask, which is equivalent to rejecting other people. I don’t know which one of them was so stupid as to hit the jackpot and capsize.”


       Xu Ye was stunned. It turned out that Chu Yu wearing a mask in the club was just a sign that he was single without a sub. Did he take off his mask last Saturday because he took himself as a slave? Xu Ye smiled wryly. No matter how vulnerable the mask was, one day it would be taken off. He was a member of the Chu family, and that was not going to change.


       At this time, C said awkwardly, “Yes, all subs want a dom like that, with money and skills. Unfortunately, he’s too discerning to even look at the Huamei2The Chinese huamei or melodious laughingthrush is a passerine bird of eastern Asia in the family Leiothrichidae. The name “hwamei” comes from its Chinese name 畫眉, which means “painted eyebrow”, referring to the distinctive marking around the bird’s eyes, let alone us.”


       “Look, that Huamei has gone to seduce him again.” A pointed to a distance and laughed, “How many times have these been? He’s really persevering, losing and fighting repeatedly.”


       B looked over there, surprised, “Huh, is this a success? The Earl isn’t going to take him over, is he…”


       Xu Ye followed their gazes. Next to the sofa booth dedicated to the senior members, a handsome man wearing only a layer of gauze was standing in front of Chu Yu, with a pair of phoenix eyes and a charming smile. Chu Yu stretched out his hand, and he knelt down obediently as he pressed his face against his palm, and rubbed it lightly. The hand caressed his cheek, picked up his chin, and rubbed it around his neck, while the man known as the ‘Thrush’ gently let him touch his face.


       The scene made Xu Ye’s chest feel as stuffy as if he had a large stone slab pressed against him. He got up abruptly and walked through the crowd towards the balcony.

In case anyone didn’t realise, it seemed that most of the nickname in the circle is based on animals

Chapter 14

       When he woke up, Xu Ye felt as if he had died once.


       “Are you awake?” “How do you feel? Are you uncomfortable anywhere?” Xu Ting and Zhou Jia were both present, asking questions one after the other.


       It took Xu Ye a while to realize that he was in the hospital. The transparent liquid entered the body from the back of the hand, and his whole hand was cold. He moved his lips, but only a muffled sound came out, and his throat rasped with a tingling sensation. It should be the reaction left by gastric lavage.


       At any rate, his life was saved. Xu Ye smiled wryly, and asked hoarsely, “What time is it?”


       “It’s past three o’clock.” Zhou Jia reached out and brushed the hair on his forehead, and said, “Finally woke up, you scared me to death.”


       It was already three o’clock in the morning, and he had been unconscious for so long. His head was heavy and his limbs were weak. The large gaps in his memory made it difficult for him to piece together what happened afterwards. He turned to Xu Ting slightly, and called out, “Dad.”


       “Get some sleep, and we’ll talk again when you’re better.” Xu Ting pulled the blanket for him. Xu Ye was really out of energy, so he closed his eyes and fell asleep.


       When he woke up again, the sky was already bright, and the sunlight was blocked by the white window screen, softening it considerably. There was a fresh breeze that blew in, washing away the smell of antiseptic solution.


       When he saw the person sitting next to him, Xu Ye’s head short-circuited for a few seconds.


       The Third Young Master Chu sat idly on a chair fiddling with his mobile phone. When he saw that Xu Ye was awake, his eyes paused for a moment, and he pursed his lips and said, “Yo, you’re awake.”


       The memory of last night came flooding back to him and Xu Ye stiffened. He glanced at the emergency button on the wall.


       “Don’t be nervous, I’m not going to do anything to you.” Chu Xuan raised the backrest of the hospital bed, allowing Xu Ye to shift from lying flat to a sitting posture. Then he got up and poured a glass of water into his mouth, squinting his eyes and said softly, “Come, open your mouth.”


       His action which was like coaxing a child made Xu Ye’s hair stand on end. He looked at the other party tensely and remained motionless.


       This stalemate lasted for a while, Xu Ye reached out and grabbed the cup.


       “Tsk, do you only listen to him?” Chu Xuan muttered to himself, then let go of his hand and let Xu Ye take the cup.


       Xu Ye didn’t know what he meant, but he knew that even if the cup was filled with poison, and Chu Xuan wanted him to drink it, he would have to drink it. Besides, he felt really uncomfortable with a dry mouth and a dry tongue, so he simply drank the cup dry.


       “Another one?”


       “No need for the trouble.” Xu Ye put the cup aside.


       Chu Xuan looked at him with a smile, “Don’t mention it, I can let you trouble me all day today.”


       Xu Ye was startled, but he couldn’t tell anything from that face. He had no choice but to guess what Chu Xuan meant in his heart.


       When Chu Xuan saw his expression, he thought about what he had said just now and said leisurely, “It’s not that I want to trouble you, but I want you to trouble me. Today you can use me as a servant and do as you please..” After he said, he took a bright red apple from the cabinet, peeled it lightly, and put it in his hand after peeling, “Eat it.”


       Xu Ye was under great pressure, looked at him at a loss and asked, “What is the Third Young Master trying to play?”


       Chu Xuan wiped his hands with a paper towel, and said with an innocent face, “I’m very serious about really compensating for my sins.”


       He got someone into the hospital, and then pop up out of nowhere to make amends. What kind of logic is that? Xu Ye didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, “There’s no need to make an apology, I don’t deserve it. I could only ask that the Third Young Master will be kind to me for what happened yesterday…..”


       “Of course, you don’t deserve it.” Chu Xuan looked at him with a half-smile, with a hint of mockery in his voice, “Don’t get me wrong, the person I want to make amends with is not you.” The smile on the corner of his lips deepened as he saw Xu Ye’s astonishment, “When you accidentally break someone’s toy, you should always express your apology sincerely. At least you need to spend some effort into fixing it, don’t you also think so?” The rising tone of his voice carried a bit of ambiguity and dissipated into the air.


       Xu Ye curled up his cold fingers, looked directly at him and said, “I don’t understand what you mean.”


       “You don’t need to understand.” Chu Xuan folded his arms and leaned on the back of the chair, “All you need to do is lie down obediently and take care of your body, and I’ll be done, Mr. Toy.”


       Xu Ye felt humiliated by such a blatant statement, but the meaning of those words was very clear. As he gritted his teeth and asked the question, “To whom you are reporting?”, the door to the hospital room opened.


       Chu Xuan turned around and took a look, stood up immediately, and called out, “Second brother.”


       A light grey suit with a black collar, a white shirt, and slender legs make the dull suit pants look great. Xu Ye’s gaze rested on the man’s face, and he couldn’t move away from it.


       The colour of the eyes, the line of the lips, and the curvature of the jaw were all so familiar. It was the first time that the person who covered himself with a mask appeared in front of him completely.


       He looked handsome, magnificent and outstanding.


       Xu Ye’s heart seemed to stop beating suddenly, he even forgot to breathe and just stared at him blankly. It was not until he walked up to the hospital bed and reached out to touch the side of his face, Xu Ye tilted his head and avoided his hand.


       The man swept a glance at Chu Xuan who was standing beside him, and said, “Get out.”


       “Oh.” Chu Xuan, who was always difficult to deal with, actually didn’t say a word more than that and silently withdrew, closing the door behind him.


       “Feeling better?” There was a gentleness in his calm voice that belonged to him alone.


       Xu Ye sat motionlessly and did not respond.


       “Chu Xuan sometimes goes too far in things. I have already taught him a lesson. If you feel uneasy, you can use him as a servant at will these two days.”


       “You are the second young master of the Chu family.” His face was already pale, and now it was even paler, and he looked very weak.


       “I’m Chu Yu.”


       “You didn’t want to take off your mask because you didn’t want me to know who you were?”


       “Now you know.” Chu Yu looked at him, “What’s the difference?”


       Xu Ye’s eyes flickered as if there were countless voices buzzing in his head, which made him feel so confused and unable to calm down. After a long time, he finally made up his mind and uttered a sentence, “Can we end our relationship?”


       Chu Yu looked at him with eyes as black as ink, and asked, “Why?”


       “You said that this kind of thing needs to be consent from both sides… But now, I don’t want to continue.” Despite his efforts to remain calm, his voice still trembled slightly.


       If the person behind the mask was just an ordinary man, Xu Ye would be willing to maintain such a master-slave relationship, but now this person was Chu Yu—the second young master of the Chu family who calls the wind and rain, and they were not two individuals who could get along as equals at all. In other words, as long as Chu Yu was willing, he could even make Xu Ye a slave in the true sense of the word, at any time and in any place. Such existence itself was a huge pressure, which scared Xu Ye.


       Chu Xuan said that he was just a toy. Perhaps Chu Yu has had many such toys, and he was only the most ordinary of them all. He couldn’t guess Chu Yu’s mind, nor could he predict the future, everything was beyond his expectations. He wanted to obtain physical relaxation and pleasure through the master-slave relationship, but he didn’t want to get involved with the regional mafia boss in K city for this.


       So he had to escape. From the shadow of the Chu family. From this man’s side.


       The man was silent, his eyes became very cold.


       The feeling of oppression made Xu Ye’s hand holding the bed sheet tremble slightly, and just when he felt that he was about to be crushed, he heard the other party’s response.


       “As you wish.”


       Xu Ye was discharged from the hospital in the afternoon, at his insistence. That hospital was owned by Golden Eagle, and he didn’t want to stay there any longer.


       Xu Ting told him about the situation at that time. It was Chu Yu who sent him to the hospital. When Xu Ting and the others arrived, Xu Ye had already been sent for gastric lavage. The rescue was done in a timely manner, so there were no more serious consequences. As for why Chu Yu suddenly appeared here, it was unknown. In the hospital, he forced his younger brother to apologise and then gave the painting of ‘Water Lilies’ to Xu Ting. Who would dare not accept a gift from the Chu family? Xu Ting had to take it and hang it in his home.


       This matter really got a little bigger so Xu Ting gave him a week off and asked him in a roundabout way if he wanted to see a psychologist. Xu Ye was so annoyed that he went back to his apartment and slept with his head covered.


       At first Xu Ye was worried that Chu Yu would cause trouble because of his refusal, but after doing nothing at home for three days and found that everything was quiet. On the evening of the fourth day, he received a call from Liu Jing asking him to go to the bar. He was bored, and his health was almost recovered, so he happily went to meet up.


       The bar that Liu Jing likes to go to was called ‘From Dawn to Dusk’, and there was a group of good-looking MB (money boys)1A rentboy; a (usually young) male who earns money by offering sexual services. in it. When Xu Ye went there, Liu Jing was holding one of them and joking, when Liu Jing saw him coming, he patted the ass of the person in his arms and said, “Go and sit by the side, I’m going to chat with Young Master Xu for a while.”


       Xu Ye sat down, and a handsome MB came over to pour him wine, but Liu Jing stopped him, “Don’t let him drink, go get a glass of milk.”


       Xu Ye frowned and said, “Are you making fun of me?”


       “Haha.” Liu Jing laughed loudly, “Your heroic deeds have spread throughout the circle, fighting bravely against Chu the third rather than surrendering to death.”


       “Who the hell told this?” He was very angry, “If it gets to Chu Xuan’s ears, how am I going to keep on living?”


       “Don’t be nervous, it’s just a joke.” Liu Jing patted him on the shoulder, “But I’m really curious that he let you off the hook like that. Whoever has bumped into him in the past hasn’t been beaten to death? You got out of there with a gastric lavage and no consequences.”


       “I don’t know. Who can guess what people like them are thinking.” Xu Ye said that, but he thought of that man again. This matter must have been suppressed by Chu Yu, who was actually quite nice to himself.


       The MB got a glass of milk from somewhere, and Liu Jing pushed him in front of him and asked, “Last time you said you found a good dom, how is it going?”

Chapter 13

       Xu Ting said angrily, “Your brain is nothing but a decoration!”


       At this time, Song Wanhua’s phone call was over. Song Yueran leaned over and asked, “Dad, what’s the matter?” Song Wanhua smiled, patted her on the shoulder and said, “It’s nothing, it’s getting late, let the driver take you back first.”


       “Why chase me away if things are fine?” It’s in a girl’s nature to be sensitive. She looked at his father, then at Xu Ting, and said, “Uncle Xu, can you let Xu Ye take me back?”


       Before Xu Ting could speak, Song Wanhua tapped his daughter on the head, “You girl, have some decency. Xiao Ye and I still have a business to talk about, so you go back first.”


       When he saw her blinking at him, Xu Ye knew that she was afraid that he would be reprimanded and wanted to help him escape, so he smiled and said, “You can call me anytime you want to go somewhere when you are free.”


       Song Yueran nodded and left.


       “How is it? What did they say over there?” Xu Ting was very anxious, “I have asked someone to prepare the money. As long as they don’t mind, we’ll pay for it all.”


       Song Wanhua shook his head, “I asked the people at the auction house, the check has already been paid, and the painting has been taken away. It is too late to remedy this situation. I think it would be safer if I accompanied you to explain and sincerely apologise.”


       “Is No. 6 a member of Golden Eagle?” Xu Ye asked suddenly. Looking at the expressions on Xu Ting and Song Wanhua’s faces, he knew he had guessed right.


       They were probably the only ones who could silence these powerful and influential figures with a single card. No one had ever dared to reach out for the things they fancy, so that’s why the auctioneer’s face looked so shocked after he raised his card. Knowing nothing, he raised the price again and again, forcing the other party to take the painting at a high price. This behaviour was tantamount to open challenge and provocation. With the style of Golden Eagle, it was absolutely impossible to let it go. As the saying goes, if you didn’t do anything to warrant death, you would not die. Xu Ye now knew what kind of trouble he had gotten himself into with his momentary impulsiveness. If this matter was not handled properly, everything that the Xu family had struggled with for many years might disappear under the eagle’s claws.


       However, things had come to this point of no escape, and there must be a consequence. Whoever caused the trouble should be the one to bear it.


       Xu Ye tried his best to maintain his composure, and said, “Uncle Song, I’ll go with you to apologize.”


       Xu Ting shouted: “What era is this and you still trying to be brave?!”


       Song Wanhua admired the boy’s courage in his heart. After thinking for a while, he patted him on the shoulder and said, “Fine. After all, you’re the one who held up the sign, so it’s more appropriate for you to go.”


       The c0cktail party continued and the banquet hall was lit up. Xu Ye followed Song Wanhua upstairs and stopped outside a suite of rooms. Outside the door stood four men in black suits, all with burly figures and shining eyes.


       “Mr. Song.” One of them, standing on the left, bowed slightly to Song Wanhua.


       “Heizi, long time no see.” Song Wanhua greeted with a smile, “Is Third Young Master inside?”


       “Yes, please come in.” The bodyguard called Heizi stretched out his hand and opened the door without saying a word.


       Xu Ye knew that the third young master referred to Chu Guangyue’s third son, Chu Xuan. Since three years ago, Chu Guangyue gradually handed over power to his three sons and retired behind the scenes to become the Overlord. Chu Xuan was only twenty-five years old but had been in business for several years. He had a number of businesses, mostly in the arts, such as performing arts companies and animation and comic book creations. The outside world described him as savage, unpredictable, and the most difficult of the three brothers. He was very interested in antique calligraphy and paintings, and he probably came here especially for the ‘Water Lilies’ today.


       Before he entered the door, Xu Ye took a deep breath.


       The suites were large and beautifully decorated. A drop-shaped crystal lamp hangs in a large area on the top, illuminating the room as if it were daylight. The floor was covered with a light grey carpet of dark flowers. There were many people in the room, but it was surprisingly quiet. The only person sitting was a man in the middle of the sofa.


       Xu Ye’s eyes fell on him.


       Unlike the ones seen in those economic weekly magazines, Chu Xuan had a very classical face, like those handsome princes in the Wei and Jin Dynasties, with a pair of slightly curved peach blossom eyes1eye in a wavy shape like a peach flower petal, as if he was smiling, but his gaze was cold. With a dark blue suit dr4p3d over his shoulders, he leaned on the sofa in a comfortable posture. The collar of the shirt was unbuttoned two times, revealing a small part of his collarbone.


       “I haven’t seen Uncle Song for a long time, but you seemed to be getting younger and younger.” Chu Xuan got up and raised his hand, looking very enthusiastic, “Please sit down.”


       Song Wanhua sat down on the sofa at the side, and said with a smile, “Is Third Young Master complimenting me or making fun of me?”


       “Look at you.” Chu Xuan pursed his lips, “No matter how much I mess around, I can’t make fun of you.” He paused, his gaze wandered over to Xu Ye who was standing behind Song Wanhua, and he said leisurely, “If you want to talk about jokes, it seems that I am the one who is making people laugh today.”


       Xu Ye’s heart sank for a moment, knowing that the heavy rain was about to come.


       Song Wanhua was no less than a veteran, he spoke calmly and steadily, “Everyone outside says that the Third Young Master is a man of goodwill and kindness that donated so much to the children who have lost their education. They were all very touched.” These words made everything sound like a deliberate arrangement, putting a step under the young master’s feet.


       Chu Xuan laughed out loud, and his peach blossom eyes glowed darkly, “Uncle Song’s words were so good that I couldn’t even pick out a single thing that was wrong with him. You are worthy of being a veteran.”


       “Third Young Master, it was actually a misunderstanding that things turned out like this. It was his first time to come to this kind of occasion, he was ignorant and reckless. He didn’t know that No. 6 was your card, so he repeatedly increased the amount. He originally wanted to donate the money, but I wonder if Third Young Master can give him a chance?” Song Wanhua revealed his intentions. As long as Chu Xuan was willing to let Xu Ye go, the money would be paid out of the Xu family’s pocket.


       “If I take the painting and let him pay for it, and the words got out, people will think that our Golden Eagle is about to go bankrupt.” Chu Xuan raised his ending voice and snapped his fingers. The two men in black behind him carried the pair of ‘Water Lilies’ and showed it in front of the three of them. Chu Xuan looked at Xu Ye with a smirk, “It is said that finding a friend who understands is hard to come by, so I guess this Young Master Xu is also someone who knows how to paint, why don’t you let me hear your opinion on this painting?”


       Xu Ye stiffened, the words were aimed at him. Song Wanhua on the side couldn’t intervene, so he had to sit in silence. Chu Xuan had a lot of research on works of art, and he would be making a fool out of himself to show off his meagre knowledge of art in front of Chu Xuan, so he simply told the truth, “I don’t know much about oil paintings, but I just think this one looks very good. beautiful.”


       “Oh?” Chu Xuan raised his eyebrows and looked at him, “Does Young Master Xu thinks the painting is more beautiful, or the feeling of holding the sign is more beautiful?” He was like a spotted snake lazily lurking in the grass, but his sharp fangs could kill you if you weren’t careful.


       Xu Ye stood there silently, and his palms were covered with sweat.


       As he saw this, Song Wanhua wanted to come out to smooth things over, “Third Young Master…”


       “Just kidding, I just want to liven up the atmosphere.” Chu Xuan cut off his words, smiling with a pair of peach blossom eyes, “Life is always full of surprises, it’s rare to meet a philanthropist gentleman who bids against me, I’d love to have a drink with him and talk. Uncle Song won’t deny me that opportunity, will he?”


       Song Wanhua’s eyebrows twitched, and he murmured inwardly, but he still smiled and said, “Why not? But this boy is a very poor drinker and not very good at talking, so if there is anything he has done to offend Third Young Master, I hope you won’t mind, for the sake of this old Song.”


       Chu Xuan smiled and said, “Uncle Song is exaggerating.”


       Song Wanhua got up and patted Xu Ye on the shoulder, said with a smile, “You guys chat” and left. Xu Ye stood alone in this hostile suite, his hands and feet were cold.


       “Sit down.” Chu Xuan leaned on the armrest of the sofa, supporting his head with one arm.


       Xu Ye sat down according to his words, only to hear the other party say slowly, “I think, I’m actually quite generous.” He hooked his fingers, and a man in black brought an open flask with transparent ice cracks and put it in front of him. Then he quickly opened all the bottles on the table and there were many different kinds of red wine and some foreign wines such as vodka and brandy.


       Chu Xuan took two bottles casually, poured some into a vase at the same time, changed another two bottles, poured some, and changed again… until the flask was full. Then he smiled at Xu Ye, “I always use good wine when entertaining guests.”


       The man in black put the flask in front of Xu Ye.


       Under the light, the liquid in the bottle was turbid. One knew that such a large amount of wine mixed together would never taste good. Besides, the volume of this bottle was more than three litres, so it’s a lot of wine to drink in one go…


       Xu Ye’s eyes flickered, and he smiled wryly. He didn’t know if Xu Ting had prepared an ambulance because today he was probably going to experience the feeling of being drunk to death.


       He stretched out his hand to hold the flask in front of him, and asked, “If I finish drinking all this wine, is it possible for the Third Young Master to let go of the past for what happened at the auction just now?”


       There was a cold glint in Chu Xuan’s gloomy gaze: “Are you making a deal with me?”


       There was no way out.


       Xu Ye was silent for a moment, closed his eyes, picked up the flask and poured it into his mouth. The cold liquid flowed down his oesophagus and churned in his stomach, and the alcohol quickly rushed into the limbs and bones, igniting the heat of his whole body. The throat that was forced to swallow repeatedly also felt like it was on fire, and he was so choked that he bowed his waist and coughed non-stop. Then, dizziness came one after another, encroaching on his brain.


       But he had only drunk less than a third of the wine.


       Xu Ye pushed himself to drink some more, and the surging alcohol hit his consciousness so hard that he could hardly hold the bottle steady. The constant discomfort made it difficult for him to swallow, and his breathing was hot and rapid.


       “Can’t drink any more?” Chu Xuan folded his arms and looked at him with great interest, raised his hand and said, “Go and help him.”


       Two men in black stepped forward and pressed Xu Ye onto the sofa, and the other took the flask to his mouth, squeezed his chin and poured it down.


       At this moment, Heizi’s voice sounded from the door, “Second Young Master!”


       A cold and deep voice shouted, “Go away!”


       Then with a bang, the door was kicked open.


       Xu Ye felt that the hand that was holding his jaw loosened, and the wine that had been pouring down was finally removed from above, and he began to cough violently.


       There seemed to be someone talking in the room, but he couldn’t hear a word. His heart was beating faster like it was about to burst out of his chest. He slumped to the sofa, gasping for breath, his vision blurred into a haze of colour, the world spinning wildly like a giant kaleidoscope.


       Someone picked him up by his arms. Xu Ye struggled feebly with his arms and legs but calmed down as he fell into the embrace. A faint trace of consciousness was maintained in the dizziness and suffocation.


       The familiar scent and the warmth of the embrace were something he knew well, something he could rely on and feel at ease with. He was like a wounded little animal, leaning against the solid chest with his eyes closed, whimpering in a low voice. No one could clearly hear what he said, except for the person who was holding him—”Master…”


       Then the thread of consciousness was broken, and he was completely plunged into darkness.

Chapter 12

       It hadn’t been a day or two since Xu Ting had his eyes on the land in Donglin. He had a temperament of a man that liked the new and disliked the old, which could be seen from his bed partner that changes every three days. The cafeteria business had been relatively stable since it got on track, with no major storms. With a large number of franchises almost at capacity, he had other ideas. He found out that there was a land of about 1,000 acres in Donglin city, with beautiful mountains and rivers, and it was only three hour drive from K City, so he thought about taking it and making it a high-end resort. The reason for cooperating with Song Wanhua was first, because Xu Ting himself had no experience in resorts, while Song Wanhua already had several mature properties in his hands, and second because the area to the east was really susceptible. Over the years, the scarcity of land resources in the vicinity had become more serious as urbanisation intensified. There was such a fat piece of meat in Donglin, and there were many wolves coveting it. There was a reason why this piece of meat was still intact and untouched so far.


       Donglin, east border.


       Without Chu Guangyue, it would just be an ordinary town located east of K city.


       Chu Guangyue was born in Donglin and left the town for K City when he was twenty-five to make a living. He was so bold and meticulous that he was taken up by one of the leaders of the Water Snake Gang and became a bill collector. At that time, the Water Snake Gang was the dominant family in K City, controlling the city’s underground money laundering, drug, and sex trades. With his ruthless methods, Chu Guangyue skyrocketed, and it took him eight years to become the second leader of the Water Snake Gang. He obediently obeyed everything and sold his life for the gang leader for two years, and then turned the entire Water Snake Gang upside down in one fell swoop. After that day, the name of the Water Snakes Gang disappeared, and the logo was replaced by a black eagle.


       There were many versions of the reason why Chu Guangyue turned against the gang, but one of the most popular was that he wanted to avenge the death of a man who came with him.


       That man walked out from Donglin with him back then, blocked knives and shotguns for him, followed him for eight years, and died in an accident after being hit by a stray bullet. It was the gang leader who did the tricks, and the reason was that a mistress said that the man molested her during pillow talk. It was said that Chu Guangyue personally chopped him and his mistress into pieces, and the scene was so bloody that even those gang members’ legs went weak.


       Afterwards, the Black Eagle Group worked as a gangster for a few years. They gradually began to gain access to high-profile industries and washed away all the private money. Now that more than twenty years have passed, the Black Eagle Group of that year had already transformed into a powerful and decent Golden Eagle Group, and the Chu family also became a popular guest of honour in business and political circles.


       The reason why the place in Donglin still retained its original state was that Chu Guangyue did not allow others to touch it.


       This was another main reason why Xu Ting asked Song Wanhua to cooperate. Song Wanhua has a friendly relationship with Chu Guangyue. He used to be a high-level official of the Black Eagle Group.


       It was Xu Ting’s life principle to make the best use of everything. This ‘thing’ also included his own son. He had intentionally or unintentionally led Xu Ye to meet Song Wanhua because he wanted them to get married. He had already played the game of forming a family and cooperating with each other when he was young. That’s how he and Zhou Jia got married. He felt that as long as things worked out, the follow-up was not important. Affection in this kind of thing was like the icing on the cake, and it didn’t matter if it was gone.


       Xu Ye hated him for this, but there was nothing he could do.


       This charity auction dinner was held in the banquet hall on the 36th floor of Jinmao Tower, which was full of grandeur. Men and women dressed in glamorous formal attire exchanged cups and glasses, smiling and lightly chatting, the place was full of people with fragrant shoulders, and slender waists, dressed in suits and leather shoes, which made Xu Ye feel tired. Xu Ting and Zhou Jia were holding hands, laughing and acting in front of people, which made him lose his appetite. Even the champagne tasted like bitter buckwheat tea. He simply picked a secluded place by the window and stood there, overlooking the city’s bright lights and rushing traffic.


       “Why are you hiding here?” Zhou Jia came up behind him with a tall glass in her hand, and whispered, “Why don’t you go to your father’s side?” When she saw that he didn’t move, she sighed and persuaded, “Even if you don’t like her, you have to go and meet her. The girl looks average, and she looks pretty good-natured. You should also calm down and don’t let her get down.”


       Xu Ye glanced at her, “I could get land and someone good at the same time, I seemed to strike gold. I wonder if my father had such a generous buy-one-get-one-free bonus when he married you?”


       “You child is really…” Zhou Jia held back her anger and said, “I don’t care, do as you please.”


       “As if you’ve ever cared about me before.” Xu Ye sneered and walked around her, walking towards the hustle and bustle.


       Xu Ting was talking to Song Wanhua when a young girl in a rose-red dress stood beside them smiling. Song Wanhua saw him first, and said with a smile, “I was just talking about you, and here you are.”


       “Hi Uncle Song, it’s been a long time.” Xu Ye nodded slightly. He stood next to Xu Ting with a smile, and asked, “This must be your daughter, right? Hello, I’m Xu Ye.” He offered his hand.


       “Hello, I am Song Yueran.” The girl shook hands with him and smiled. Although she was not very attractive, she was quite sweet when she smiled.


       Song Wanhua patted Xu Ye on the shoulder and said, “This child just came back from Canada, and she doesn’t have many friends around. If you have time, Xiao Ye, spend more time with her.”


       Xu Ye smiled, “Uncle Song, aren’t you afraid that I kidnap your daughter?”


       “How can you say that?” Xu Ting feigned anger.


       Song Wanhua laughed loudly, “If you can kidnap her, that means you’re good at it. Go on, you youngsters talk, don’t stay with us old fogeys, you’ll be bored to death.”


       “Miss Song, shall we go over there and have a seat?” Xu Ye immediately extended the invitation. Today he was wearing a silver-grey slim-fit suit with a pair of white leather shoes, looking very refined.


       Song Yueran happily went with him.


       “Call me Yueran or Amy, Miss Song sounds weird.” She followed him and sat down by the window. Xu Ye took the juice and handed it to her, and she blinked, “It’s for children.” After she said this, she changed the drink to a c0cktail and drank it all in one go. When she saw Xu Ye looking at her, she stuck out her tongue, “Don’t tell my dad, he won’t let me drink.”


       Xu Ye smiled, “If you go back drunk, I will be criticised heavily.”


       “I’m a good drinker and I don’t blush, you can’t tell it.” She took two glasses of different types of c0cktails from the waiter’s tray and tasted them, and her expression frowned, “That tastes weird.”


       “That one is made with vodka, which is stronger.”


       “It’s still the same as the previous one.” She came to a conclusion, looked at him and said, “Is it boring to be with me?”


       “No. You’re interesting.”


       This sentence was true. Xu Ye knows how to fake a smile on such an occasion, but this girl was not like the pretentious celebrities, she was very natural.


       “I’m not used to this kind of banquet. The dresses are so tight and I have to pretend to be a lady, it’s no fun.” She turned her calf up a little and said, “The heels are all worn out.” She wore a pair of silver stiletto shoes, the ankles were scuffed red. She sounded helpless.


       “Take off your shoes and relax.” Xu Ye said.


       She was taken aback, “… People are coming and going, so it seems a bit unsightly to go barefoot.”


       Xu Ye took off his suit, put it on her knees, and covered her legs together with her shoes, “This way no one can see them.”


       Song Yueran was stunned for a while, and said with some embarrassment, “Your suit will be dragged on the floor.”


       “It’s okay.” He smiled, “Remember to wear a long skirt next time, at least you can cover it when you’re sitting.”


       “Yeah. Got it.” She had a gentle look on her face.


       The main event of the so-called charity dinner was to raise donations. Several well-known painters auctioned their paintings, and the money raised from the auction was used to donate to build primary schools in difficult areas.


       Both Xu Ye and Song Yueran got their number plates. But the two of them were just playing around. First, they didn’t have much appreciation for the paintings, and second, the financial resources they could control were so small. If they really wanted to make a move, it was up to those two fathers.


       At seven o’clock, the event officially began. The lights were focused on the stage at the front of the venue. The host talked eloquently and invited a few children who couldn’t continue their education to create an atmosphere, which fully evoked the sympathy of the rich. The auction began with an overwhelming number of bids and many of the paintings was sold at high prices.


       The last one was the work of a deceased artist ‘Water Lilies’, donated by his children. The finale was bound to be good. Xu Ye looked up the painting on his mobile phone and found that it had become a masterpiece and was worth a lot of money. Strangely enough, the asking price for this painting was very low, and when it reached one and a half million dollars, no one raised their bid, which was much lower than the previous ones.


       Song Yueran also found it strange, and asked in a low voice, “What’s the matter? Even if the painting is not good, it’s not so bad that it won’t go up for auction?” There were many businessmen who liked to use charity to show off.


       Xu Ye frowned, when he saw that the hammer was about to fall, he raised his hand and shook his own number plate.


       No. 87.


       The auctioneer seemed to be taken aback for a moment, and immediately said loudly, “No. 87 is 1.8 million. Is there a higher bid? If not, this beautiful ‘Water Lilies’ will go to this gentleman No. 87.”


       A hand was stretched out from the centre of the field.


       “Mr. No. 6 bid 2.1 million.”


       Xu Ye’s original intention was to increase the price, which was considered a donation to those children. When he saw that there were bidders following closely, knowing that there were still people who liked the painting, he simply raised his hands again.


       “Mr. No. 87 raised his placard again, 2.4 million… Ah, Mr. No. 6 bid 2.7 million, 2.7 million! Is there a higher price?” The auctioneer looked towards Xu Ye.


       He froze for a moment, it seemed that he and No. 6 were the only ones left to bid, and the No. 6 bid after him twice, and apparently determined to win. He hooked his lips and smiled, since that person wanted it so much, he would bid for it no matter how expensive it was.


       “Mr. No. 87 bid 3 million! Mr. No. 6 bid 3.3 million!” The price soared all the way. When No. 6 offered 6.9 million, Song Yueran stopped Xu Ye’s hand from raising his placard.


       He was taken aback for a moment, only to hear her whisper anxiously in his ear, “Dad told you not to raise your sign again…” Then he pointed to the flashing mobile phone in his pocket, “Hurry up and answer the phone. “


       It was Xu Ting who called, and the first thing he said was hysterical, “Little bastard, are you crazy!”


       At this moment, the auctioneer tapped the hammer three times, wiped off his sweat and announced that No. 6 was sold for 6.9 million.


       As soon as Xu Ye left the venue, he was dragged into a corner by the dark-faced Xu Ting, and Song Wanhua was on the phone with a serious face.


       “What’s going on?” He frowned.


       “Who asked you to hold up the sign? Do you know who the number 6 is? Yet you dare to raise it? Not once, but many times!” Xu Ting desperately restrained his furious emotions, “You’ve got a lot of nerve, you dare to do something that no one else dares to do, I, Xu Ting, really gave birth to a good son!”


       “So who is number six?” Xu Ye asked with a frown.

Ofc it should end with 6.9 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Chapter 11

Chapter 10 last paragraph that’s incomplete previously:1It was five minutes before eight o’clock when everything was laid out on the table, and Xu Ye stood hovering at the entrance to the stairs. In fact, his curiosity about the man had reached its peak, and he had been calculating the thoughts of ‘He would definitely not wear a mask when he sleeps’, and ‘If I go in now, maybe I can see his face’ and other thoughts. But a voice on the other side warned him ‘He forbids you to see and you should not violate’, and ‘If you do this, you will be punished severely’, so he hesitated, pacing around like an ant on a hot pan. It was only when he saw the man in the light grey mask coming down the stairs that he hid his regretful little thoughts and smiled up at him, showing his neatly set teeth, “Good morning, Master.”

       Xu Ye’s dark and bright eyes made his face look clean and bright. His facial features embodied the advantages of his mother Zhou Jia, which could be described as delicate and pretty. However, he himself didn’t like this kind of statement. When he was in college, he punched out a male classmate’s front teeth after he made a joke about him saying, “If you disguised yourself as a fake young lady, you’ll surely pass off as a real one.” He then started working out and really developed his abdominal muscles and Apollo’s belt. But then he got busy with his work, and there were problems in his love life, and he didn’t care about managing it, so now his muscle lines were less visible. All in all, he was still in good shape, healthy and energetic, not like those frail and slender young men. It was just that his face looked a little immature, so when he went to work, he always wore a pair of non-prescribing gold-rimmed glasses to make himself look more mature and trustworthy.


       The masked man was infected by his smile and was in a good mood. He sat down at the dining table and patted his legs.


       Xu Ye knelt beside his legs. The man took a piece of bread and spread strawberry jam with a knife and handed it to him, “Did you sleep well last night?”


       “I slept so deeply that I didn’t even know it was raining.”


       “That’s good, you look much more refreshed than before.” The man ate his breakfast slowly, as if he remembered something, and said, “Next time, don’t put your mobile phone on your pillow when you sleep.”


       Xu Ye was taken aback, “How did you know my phone was on my pillow?” He remembered that he had put the mobile phone by the pillow after setting the alarm last night, but when he woke up this morning, he found that the mobile phone was ringing on the TV cabinet. It was strange and for a while, he thought that maybe he had remembered it wrong. Now it seemed that the man put it there.


       He came to my room last night. Why? Because he was worried I wouldn’t be able to sleep or have a nightmare?


       “I don’t remember giving you the right to ask questions, slave.” The man glanced at him.


       Xu Ye’s heart warmed at the thought of him coming to the bedside to take care of him. He bent his eyes and smiled, biting the bread while looking up at the person on the seat.


       The man was spreading butter on a piece of bread, and when he felt Xu Ye’s gaze, he turned his face to the side and said with a seemingly helpless smile, “Really…” With that, he put down the knife and stretched out his hand to wipe the strawberry jam off Xu Ye’s mouth with his index finger, then stopped his long, slender finger before his lips and said, “Open your mouth.”


       The back of Xu Ye’s ears flushed with heat, and he stuck his tongue out to lick the red sauce off the finger before taking it in. Inch by inch, his lips and tongue dug into the finger, licking, toothing, sucking, the faint sweetness of strawberry jam filling his mouth, and his eyes became slightly hazy. The man raised his fingers slightly to force his slave to straighten his body and stretched his neck, the trembling Adam’s apple on the slender neck looked fragile and beautiful.


       The man’s fingers were surrounded by the hot and wet mouth, and the soft and slippery tip of the tongue could be clearly felt. The sight of the naked man on his knees allowing himself to be invaded without resistance was a huge stimulus in itself and made even the eyes behind the mask darken. Just when Xu Ye was trying to swallow it deeper into the base of his tongue, the man quickly pulled out his fingers, pulling out a strand of silver from the corner of his lips.


       Xu Ye choked twice and blushed in embarrassment.


       “At your level, you still can’t handle deep-throating.” The man wiped his fingers with a wet towel, and his tone was flat.


       Xu Ye’s face grew hotter, and he lowered his head. His jaw was not relaxed enough at all and the sharp pressure on the base of his tongue triggered an instinctive rejection of his body. He knew that if the man hadn’t pulled out his finger in time, he would have had a worse reaction, and he might have retched or coughed suddenly and bit him.


       “Slave, there are many ways to please me, no need to force yourself to do something you are not ready for, especially something that could be dangerous.” The man poured the milk over a spoon and fed it to him.


       The milk calmed down the discomfort in his throat just now, and Xu Ye said softly, “Thank you, master…”


       The breakfast episode had left him a little frustrated, and he was sluggish while doing the dishes. When he had finished cleaning up, he saw the man standing by the window, listening to the phone. Mostly it was the other party who was talking, and he only responded briefly. From the corner of his eye, he caught a glimpse of Xu Ye standing there blankly, pointing his finger at him to go over.


       Xu Ye was considering whether to kneel down when the man grabbed his waist from behind. His naked back was pressed to the other party’s neat clothes, creating a subtle friction. The man stuck the phone to his ear with one hand, and put the other hand around in front of him, playing with the protrusions on his chest, pinching or squeezing them, and causing those two shy little things to stand upright quickly. Xu Ye moaned lightly and wanted to dodge, but the man lowered his voice and whispered the order in his ear, “Don’t move, and don’t make a sound.”


       The man’s hand wandered freely on his body, and it was as if there was a fire wherever it went. From the lower abdomen to the chest, from the collarbone to the cheeks, sometimes teasing his Adam’s apple, sometimes teasing his lips. What the man did arouse his sensitivity, but he was forced to endure. Xu Ye stood naked by the floor-to-ceiling glass in the living room on the first floor, and could even clearly see two gardeners not far away who were pruning trees standing on the vertical ladder. Even though he clearly knew that he would not be seen by anyone outside, he still had the illusion of being exposed in front of everyone in such a scene. The glass vaguely reflected his erotic and gorgeous appearance of being in a hand of a man. He was like an object, held in the hands of that person, and played with it at will. Every inch of his body was not his own.


       When that hand came to his lower abdomen and seemed to touch his vulnerable erection, Xu Ye trembled and clenched his lips. However, half of the moans he couldn’t bear to hold in leaked from his throat, like the suppressed cry of a self-restrained teenager.


       “Well, leave this matter to him, and let me know when you have the results.” The man finally hung up the phone and put the phone in his pocket. His other free hand stroked his chest and squeezed hard on purpose. A deep voice whispered in his ear, “Who told you to make a sound, huh?”


       The feeling of pain and numbness runs through the body, bringing deeper desire. Xu Ye couldn’t bear it any longer and cried out involuntarily.


       “You will be punished for disobedience, little slave.” The smile in the man’s eyes intensified and he stopped touching his body. The man instead folded Xu Ye’s hands behind his back and held them firmly in place.


       Such a sudden withdrawal of caress stopped Xu Ye’s surging desire within an impenetrable barrier. Like a vine that had lost its footing on the stone wall, he didn’t know how to climb to it. The watery eyes were full of pleading. He didn’t dare to speak for the people behind him didn’t allow it. He didn’t dare to move, and although his legs trembled a little, he still tried to stand up straight.


       “Tell me who you are.” A deep voice sounded from behind.


       “I am…your slave.” The torment made Xu Ye slightly dizzy and he forced himself to hold on to the sliver of clarity in his head.


       “Tell me about your rights.”


       “Everything I have belongs to you, Master. I don’t have any rights.” The answer came out of his mouth.


       “Tell me about your obligations.”


       “I exist to make you happy.” His shoulder blades trembled slightly, and he took deep breaths to try to calm himself down.


       “I want you to remember these three things at all times.” The man behind let go of the palms that bound his hands, “Once you step out of here, do not allow anyone to enter your body in any way without my permission. Where my hands have just touched, no one else will touch. If I find you disobeying my orders, slave ……” He pushed up Xu Ye’s chin with his fingertips, forcing his head back against his body. “You know what the consequences will be.” The man’s voice was always calm and relaxed, without any hint of cruelty. But the sense of oppression was like maggots attached to the bones, making people tremble unceasingly. In this posture, Xu Ye’s slender neck was completely under his big hands, and his Adam’s apple was twitching in his palm, like a beautiful and fragile swan, that could be strangled as long as the man exerted a little force.


       In this way, the man reminded Xu Ye that he manipulated his desires, controlled his body, and dominated everything about him.


       “Yes, master.” Xu Ye’s eyelashes fluttered like the wings of a butterfly wet with rain. He lost himself in the light scent of the man’s body. He felt like a puppet, being led by a man into a brand new world, where there was only him and his master, and no one else.


       “Get dressed and come down, and I’ll have someone take you back.”


       When Xu Ye left, there was still a special car to pick him up, and when he arrived at the gate of Hanguan, a chauffeur in a black uniform was already waiting beside his car and opened the door for him very attentively, “Sir has instructed me to take you back.”


       Xu Ye got into the car and gave his home address, then looked out of the window at the rapidly receding scenery for a while, took out his mobile phone and called back one of the missed calls.


       Xu Ting on the other end of the phone was obviously in a bad mood, and asked, “Where did you go all day yesterday?”


       “Tired, slept all day.” He replied perfunctorily.


       “Are you sick?”




       “That’s good. There’s a charity dinner tonight, you’re coming with me.”


       “I’m not interested.” Xu Ye was a little impatient, “We agreed that you would do this kind of socialising on your own.”


       “You have to attend.” Xu Ting said coldly, “Wanhua’s daughter came back from abroad, so it’s a good opportunity to meet her. You’re not too young anymore.”


       Xu Ye was silent for a moment, then asked expressionlessly, “Are you going to sell your son for the Donglin project now?”


       “Whether the Donglin project is successful or not depends on you. Song Wanhua admires you, and if his daughter also has a crush on you, everything will naturally fall into place. Xu Ye, you have to understand clearly that if I hadn’t paved the way for you, you wouldn’t be worth much. Whether you are willing to take this path or not, you have to take it.”


       Xu Ye hung up the phone, leaned his head against the back seat and closed his eyes.

I apologise, the chapter has been cut off quite weirdly from chapter 10. Even on the agg site cut it off weirdly and the miguo site even missed the whole chapter 10 and named it chapter 11

Chapter 38

       This was the first time Shen Huiming had expressed his desire for Suo Yang so bluntly, and he wanted to be more honest.

       Perhaps the noble saints could get rid of the fascination with the body and only indulge in the splendour of the soul, but in the end, they were not saints, and they didn’t want to be saints. There was nothing wrong with being an ordinary person who not only yearned for the labyrinth-like spiritual world of your beloved but also indulged in their poppy-like skin and breath. Shen Huiming admitted his vulgarity, and he was not afraid to reveal his vulgarity to Suo Yang.

       The music started again, and the lazy female voice hummed in a language they didn’t understand.

       Suo Yang who had been drinking but was not even slightly tipsy, felt a little dizzy as he heard Shen Huiming’s words. The other party’s words were stronger than the wine Zhou Mo had handed him.

       It was not that he had never heard anyone say such things to him before.

       But it felt different.

       Those naked invitations or almost harassing physical contact made Suo Yang feel extremely uncomfortable, how could that situation be compared to what Shen Huiming had said to him?

       His consciousness was suddenly pulled back to the night not long ago when Shen Huiming sent him to the taxi and watched him leave. After he got home and opened the door, he sat on the stool by the door when the other party called.

       Suo Yang dared not recall that night easily, he felt that he had done a very disgraceful thing.

       He got aroused by a man’s voice on the phone in the middle of the night and even allowed his desire to set fire to his body, even though he was drunk at the time, which was still a bit out of line.

       But instinct. Human instinct sometimes made you completely powerless to resist.  You know it was shameful, but you kept sinking in this shame.

       Just like now, Suo Yang should’ve said something to ease the almost frozen atmosphere, but he only said one word when he opened his mouth, “Oh.”

       Shen Huiming was still nervous at first, wondering if the other party would be angry, but when he saw Suo Yang’s blank “oh”, he couldn’t help but laugh out loud.

       Suo Yang looked at him, “What’s wrong?”

       “Nothing, I think you are cute.” Shen Huiming picked up the dice again, “Shall we continue?”

       Suo Yang had no intention to continue, his whole body was now haunted by a strange thought as if Shen Huiming had planted poison in his body, and now the poison had gradually started to take effect.

       As Suo Yang regained his grip on the dice he realised that this time his instinct might have the upper hand.

       It should be from the third time he met Shen Huiming, that he had accepted the existence of this person as driven by fate, and after this concept was established, when he was getting along with the other party, every minute he spent with the other person again was a step towards them, not backwards.

       He had long ago set an ending for each other, as long as there was no major landslide in the process, he had already accepted it.

       During this period of getting along, Suo Yang had been trying to find the place where the collapse might have occurred but found that the more he searched, the more he wanted to follow the other party.

       A new round was won by Shen Huiming.

       In fact, Shen Huiming could clearly feel that at the moment, Suo Yang was out of his element, a situation that started when he uttered those words.

       This was actually a good sign. It showed that Suo Yang was not a saint, just like him.

       Who wanted to be a saint? They only want the ordinary happiness of ordinary life, and the ordinary but unique love and solace.

       Shen Huiming looked at him and asked, “I want to know what I do that would make you feel uncomfortable.”

       Suo Yang looked down at the dice in front of him and didn’t answer for a long time.

       “Is it difficult to answer? Then I’ll ask you another way,” Shen Huiming said, “Is there anything I’ve done so far that makes you feel uncomfortable?”

       Suo Yang said simply, “No.”


       Neither did the phrase ‘makes me want to kiss you’ just now.

       Shen Huiming smiled.

       Originally, Shen Huiming wanted to say that this was the end of the game, but Suo Yang became excited, and before he could speak, he had already rolled the dice in his hand.

       It was as if the other party had many questions to ask and many answers to find.

       Shen Huiming was happy to see him like this, as he himself had said before, his beloved’s refusal to ask questions of himself was tantamount to not being interested in him, which was not a good feeling.

       He wanted to tell Suo Yang everything, even things that were so private that only he knew about them.

       In the following rounds, Suo Yang was bullied miserably by ‘luck’. Clearly, he had so many questions to ask, but he kept losing.

       With another game, Shen Huiming won three consecutive victories, and he couldn’t bear it anymore, so he smiled helplessly and said, “Then I’ll ask… what do you want to ask me?”

       Suo Yang was a little aggrieved because he had lost several times in a row, and was drinking to dispel his sorrows. When he heard Shen Huiming’s question, he originally wanted to tell the other party not to have to accommodate him, but after he thought about it, he felt that there was no need to be so fussy.

       “I’ll ask one last question.” Suo Yang already had three glasses and four wine bottles empty in front of him, he had drunk a lot. “The cufflinks you dropped on me on Zhou Mo’s birthday, did you put them there on purpose?”

       Shen Huiming smiled, “You still remember that cufflink?”

       “You did it on purpose, didn’t you?” Suo Yang actually not only remembered but also cared about it a lot.

       If it wasn’t for this cufflink, he and Shen Huiming might not have met later, and then the story between the two of them would probably have ended that day.

       Shen Huiming took a sip of his wine, chuckled and said, “If I say yes, will it affect your judgement of me?”

       After getting an affirmative answer, Suo Yang looked at him with a smile on his chin.

       “No.” Suo Yang said, “But if you say no, then it will.”

       In fact, this matter couldn’t be more obvious. The reason why he had to ask was to know whether Shen Huiming would deceive him in order to maintain the so-called ‘fatalism of love’.

       Fortunately, Shen Huiming was not only smart but also upright in a timely manner.

       “At that time, I took the opportunity to play a little trick to create opportunities for myself.” Shen Huiming said, “You also know how difficult it is to ask you to meet.”

       Suo Yang looked at him with a smile in his eyes, satisfied with Shen Huiming’s answer.

       “Let’s do it one last time, an exciting game.” Shen Huiming picked up the dice again and proposed, “Do you dare to play with me?”

       Suo Yang sat up straight, heard him say ‘an exciting game’, and subconsciously licked his lips, “What game?”

       “For the last time, no more truth.” Shen Huiming looked at him with a sly smile, “Let’s play a dare.”

       A dare? Of course Suo Yang was not afraid, because he was already taking risks.

       “Okay.” Suo Yang picked up the dice and shook it with Shen Huiming.

       When the dust settled on the result of the last game between the two, Suo Yang looked at the dice on the table and his breathing went haywire because he lost.

       The feeling of both nervousness and some anticipation made him restless.

       Suo Yang seldom or almost never felt this way. He had always been calm and restrained, but today he was on the verge of losing his composure.

       Shen Huiming was very satisfied with the result, his dice points were only a little higher than Suo Yang’s, but only by this point, the other party had to obey his orders and embark on a ‘dare’.

       “What do you need me to do?” Suo Yang raised his head and asked him, willing to admit defeat.

       Shen Huiming looked at him and smiled, then got up and walked to him.

       Suo Yang’s gaze was always glued to the other person as he watched that person get up, watching that person approach, and watching that person stop in front of him. He sat there looking up at Shen Huiming, and when he was wondering what the other party was going to do, a kiss fell on his face.

       A kiss as simple as a seal of approval, and Shen Huiming’s name was stamped on his face.

       Perhaps, if there was no music, Suo Yang’s heartbeat would be heard by everyone present. But fortunately, the music never stopped, and he hadn’t been exposed yet.

       The faint breath of wine exhaled by Shen Huiming touched Suo Yang’s skin, penetrated into his body along the pores, and melted into his churning blood. Just for a moment, Suo Yang felt drunk.

       It turned out that this was his ‘dare’.

       When Shen Huiming straightened up, he said very gentlemanly, “Thank you.”

       He spoke so sincerely that Suo Yang almost thought that he had really made some generous contribution to the other party.

       Suo Yang stared at him blankly, the place where he was kissed seemed to be burning with fire.

       The century-old bell tower not far away could actually make a sound, and the deep and heavy chime that wouldn’t even be drowned out by the music in the bar just came through.

       Dang… Dang… Dang…

       One time, two times, three times…

       Each stroke seemed to hit not the ancient bell, but Suo Yang’s heart.

       When the bell finished ringing, Shen Huiming said to Suo Yang, “We still have ten hours.”

       As soon as he finished speaking, Suo Yang, who had been sitting there looking up at him, suddenly put his arms around his neck, pulling the man towards himself and kissing him.

       The fire that had originally only stayed on my cheeks was not enough to stop there and spread completely.

       This was something Shen Hui Ming had not expected.

       It was also completely out of Suo Yang’s own plan.

       This isn’t a gay bar, right? The people who come here may be reminiscing with old friends or gathering with colleagues. The action of the two men kissing attracted the attention of the people around them.

       But it was almost the first time in his adult life that Suo Yang disregarded the eyes of passersby. He even raised his other hand and wrapped it around Shen Huiming’s neck, deepening the kiss.

       Shen Huiming was surprised but responded quickly.

       There was nothing more suitable for a lingering and long kiss than this moment.

       Suo Yang’s sense of shame came late after the kiss was over. He had always felt that intimacy in public was inappropriate and disrespectful to others, but he didn’t expect that one day he would do this kind of thing himself.

       His cheeks were flushed, and he didn’t know whether it was from the alcohol or the kiss just now.

       But despite the shame he felt, he just couldn’t look at the people around him, and when faced with Shen Huiming, he could still look at each other calmly.

       Two-thirds of his kisses were based on instinct, and the remaining one-third were still rationally thought.

       This was what he initiated and what he wanted, and what he showed was what he wants to express.

       “Drunk?” Shen Huiming squatted beside him, put his hand lightly on his lap, and looked up at the person sitting there.

       Suo Yang smiled, “Do you think I kissed you because I was drunk?”

       He took the remaining half glass of wine on the table and drank it down. When he put down the glass, he even picked up the wine-soaked cherries.

       He brought the cherry to Shen Huiming’s mouth and watched him open his mouth to eat it.

       “I’m kissing you because I want to.”

Chapter 64

       Guan Anlin returned just before the end of the New Year.

       After some discussion with Chen Yuncheng, in order to save on the cost of renting the house, he simply installed a bunk bed in the room inside the store. Although the room was not big, neither of them cared about it. It was like returning to the living environment of the previous dormitory.

       Before the official opening, Chen Yuncheng followed Sun Shiliang to get the goods and gradually filled the shelves with boxes of cigarettes, alcohol and drinks. He also hired a young girl in her twenties named Wu Xiaozhu to watch the shop and keep accounts.

       Sun Shiliang wanted to hand over this store to Chen Yuncheng. He was in the wholesale tobacco and alcohol business, many of which were directly bought from local dealers. He took Chen Yuncheng around and ate a lot of food to introduce people to Chen Yuncheng. In the beginning, he was doing a sales pitch to a few customers to come here, saying that they are all his stores and that he would give the same discount for goods from both sides1it was like they were just going from one place to another place to get acquainted with the people around the market and get them to know and maybe buy products from Sun Shiliang’s place.

       When the shop started to stock up, Chen Yuncheng moved out of the daily rental house and lived with Guan Anlin in the inner room of the shop.

       Chen Yuncheng slept on the lower bunk, while Guan Anlin slept on the upper bed.

       The environment here was not as damp as Chen Yuncheng’s previous kiosk, and there were two people living in the room, so it was not so cold. The bedding on the bed was newly bought, and it was fluffy and soft when they lay on it, which was more comfortable to sleep on than the bed in the daily rental house.

       The best thing was that the store was equipped with air conditioning2this is including the units that have heating mode; a big floor-standing air conditioner outside, ready to be put up with a plastic curtain at the shop door in summer, which will keep the inside cool; while on the inside was a small unit hanging, which had not been turned on yet. Chen Yuncheng felt that winter was almost over, and the room was not so cold, so there was no need to turn it on.

       Guan Anlin didn’t pay attention to anything, he lay on the upper bunk and watched videos on his mobile phone.

       The two of them had been sorting out the goods all day, moving and lifting containers up and down, and now they didn’t want to do anything except lie down and rest.

       Chen Yuncheng put his hands behind his head and stared at the depressingly spacious bedpan above him, and thought about how Ning Junyan hadn’t contacted him for a week.

       The wound on his wrist had faded, and it might completely disappear in two days, so those violent and extreme actions of Ning Junyan were gradually forgotten by Chen Yuncheng as the injury disappeared, and he remembered again how good Ning Junyan had been to him.

       He actually wanted to call Ning Junyan again, but he was hesitant because he was afraid that Ning Junyan would not answer. He didn’t know what Ning Junyan was thinking, if Ning Junyan didn’t want to see him, he was afraid that his phone call would become harassment to the other party.

       While he was entertaining all sorts of foolish ideas, Guan Anlin poked his head out from the upper bunk to look at him. Chen Yuncheng was frowning, but before he could loosen his frown, Guan Anlin saw his expression, and asked him, “What’s wrong?”

       Chen Yuncheng replied, “It will be officially opened tomorrow.”

       Guan Anlin let out an “En” and said, “Isn’t it pretty good?”

       “Yeah, it’s pretty good,” Chen Yuncheng’s tone sounded like he was lamenting.

       Guan Anlin pulled his head back and after a while said, “My sister will be taking the university entrance exam in June this year.”

       Chen Yuncheng knew that his sister had good grades and was top-notch in the local middle school, so he asked, “What university does she want to go to?”

       Guan Anlin said, “She wants to come here for the exams, and I want her to go here too.”

       Chen Yuncheng chatted with him absentmindedly, “It’s good to come over, you siblings can take care of each other.”

       Guan Anlin was silent for a while, and said to Chen Yuncheng, “You can meet her when the time comes.”

       Chen Yuncheng sighed and rolled over to lie on his side, “Even if we are not talking about age, do you think your sister, a college student, would look at a man like me who is almost thirty, has no car or house, and is still working for someone else to look after the shop?” When he said this, Chen Yuncheng was a bit baffled. He thought about Ning Junyan was not only a university student, but also seemed to be some kind of doctoral degree who had also studied abroad, but because his head was not right, he fell in love with him.

       Guan Anlin said, “I’m burning up at the thought of her dating another man in the future.”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Your way of thinking is not normal.” After he said that, he was not in the mood to chat with Guan Anlin anymore. He closed his eyes and said, “I’m going to sleep.”

       The next morning, the tobacco shop was officially open for business. The flower baskets Chen Yuncheng had ordered were delivered early in the morning and placed on both sides of the shop’s front door, although no firecrackers could be set off, the atmosphere still looked lively.

       Customers who had previously booked cigarettes, alcohol and beverages through Boss Sun, were to start their official deliveries today.

       An old van was parked in front of the shop, which Sun Siliang had given them specifically for deliveries. In the morning, Chen Yuncheng and Guan Anlin took stock of the goods and moved them to the car one by one, ready to deliver the goods to the customer.

       For the rest of the time, Chen Yuncheng and the newly recruited Wu Xiaozhu continued to take inventory of the goods in the store and kept making adjustments to the goods on the shelves.

       This evening, Sun Shiliang asked Chen Yuncheng and the others to have dinner together, saying that it was to celebrate the opening of the new store and asked Chen Yuncheng to call Guan Anlin and Wu Xiaozhu together.

       Before hanging up the phone, Sun Shiliang said to Chen Yuncheng, “Xiao Chen, can you call Dr. Ning as well?”

       Chen Yuncheng froze for a moment and said, “I don’t know if he’s free today.”

       Sun Shiliang said, “That’s okay, ask him for me. If he can’t today, I will invite him to dinner another day. There’s an elderly person at home who needs an operation and I want to consult Dr. Ning.”

       Sun Shiliang had helped Chen Yuncheng too much over this period of time, and Chen Yuncheng had no way to refuse him, nor was he willing to give him a perfunctory answer, so he had to say, “I’ll ask him.”

       When he hung up the phone, Guan Anlin had already opened the van and got into the driver’s seat, he honked the horn and said to Chen Yuncheng, “Get in the car.”

       Chen Yuncheng nodded, turned around and gave Wu Xiaozhu a few words, pulled open the passenger door of the van and got in, and went to deliver the goods with Guan Anlin.

       Neither of them was familiar with the delivery address, so Chen Yuncheng took the delivery slip in his hand, entered the address into his mobile phone and opened the navigation.

       As Guan Anlin drove on, he occasionally turned his head and saw that Chen Yuncheng’s expression did not look too good and asked, “What’s wrong?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “It’s nothing.”

       Guan Anlin found some topics to talk about with him, “Boss Sun has introduced his distributors and clients to you, so when we have saved up enough capital, we will poach his clients and start our own business.”

       Chen Yuncheng glanced at him.

       Guan Anlin said, “It’s better than working for someone else.”

       Chen Yuncheng had been busy all morning, and he still didn’t feel relaxed even now. He leaned on the back of the chair and said, “Sun ge has helped me so much, so I will continue to help him as long as he needs it.”

       Guan Anlin hummed lightly and did not say anything.

       Chen Yuncheng remembered that he had a chat with Sun Shiliang once after drinking, saying that Sun Shiliang trusted him so much that he dared not let him down.

       At that time, Sun Shiliang was quite indifferent and told Chen Yuncheng to broaden his horizons, not put too much emphasis on profits, and not to care too much about gains and losses. He also drank a lot of wine, patted Chen Yuncheng on the shoulder, and said, “I’m a person who makes friends without expecting something in return. After a while, when you need help, you will find that all your friends are there, and they are willing to take the initiative to repay you. “

       Chen Yuncheng could feel a little bit of free-spirited energy in Sun Shiliang that did not belong to this era, and said, “Not all people are like that nowadays.”

       Sun Shiliang put his arms around his shoulders at the time, “Aren’t you just like that? You said why I gave you a hand, I thought you were like me and worthy of a sincere friend. Whether you can make money or how much money you can make is not important now. If this business is not doing well, we will replace it with another one, as long as there are friends, there will be a way to go.”

       Chen Yuncheng felt that he yearned for the free-spirited way of Sun Shiliang.

       They delivered the goods to the customer, and after unloading the goods from the car, the other party only had the middle-aged lady in the store, and Chen Yuncheng took the trouble to help her move the goods in and put them on the shelves.

       The lady thanked them repeatedly and gave them two bottles of mineral water after signing the form on their way out.

       Chen Yuncheng took off his coat when he was carrying goods. He sat in the car and unscrewed the water bottle to drink a mouthful of water.

       Guan Anlin said, “We’re done with the job after we unload the goods. We need to charge extra money if we have to help move the goods next time.”

       Chen Yuncheng raised his hand to wipe the water stains around his mouth, “It’s just a favour, don’t worry about it so much.”

       Guan Anlin said a few words in a low voice, started the car and left.

       After a while, Chen Yuncheng felt that the sweat on his body had subsided, and he also cooled down. He reached for his coat and put it on, and said, “After delivering the goods, take me to the hospital, and go back first. Then, take Xiaozhu to have dinner with Sun ge at night.”

       “What are you going to the hospital for?”

       Chen Yuncheng looked ahead and sat quietly for a while before saying, “Sun ge told me to invite a friend over there, so I’m going to the hospital to invite the friend.”

       “Which friend?” Guan Anlin couldn’t contain his curiosity and asked for more information.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “You’ve seen him before, it’s the friend that lent me his house to stay for a while before.”

       “Oh,” Guan Anlin understood, and his tone was not very friendly, “The one that drives the Land Rover.”

       Despite his reluctance, Guan Anlin still dropped off Chen Yuncheng at the hospital entrance and drove off by himself.

       Chen Yuncheng stood at the door and looked at the gate of the hospital where people were coming and going. He took out his mobile phone and hesitated for a while, but he still didn’t call Ning Junyan and walked directly into the hospital.

       According to the frequency of Ning Junyan’s night shift, he should be on the day shift today.

       Chen Yuncheng went to the floor of Ning Junyan’s department in the inpatient building. It was just after the new year, and the hospital was already full of patients, and there was almost no room for extra beds in the corridor.

       All the nurses were busy, and no one noticed him. He looked like an ordinary family member of a patient, and walked along the corridor to the door of Ning Junyan’s office, raised his hand and knocked on the door, but there was no response inside.

       He stepped back, went to the resident doctor’s office, and asked a doctor who was walking outside, “May I ask if Chief Ning is in today?”

       The doctor said, “Yes, I guess, he’s here for all the morning rounds.”

       Chen Yuncheng asked again, “So is he in surgery now?”

       The doctor turned around and asked someone, and told Chen Yuncheng, “He should still be in surgery.”

       Chen Yuncheng thanked him, walked to the bench in the corridor closest to Ning Junyan’s office and sat down, waiting for Ning Junyan.

       A nurse stopped in front of him and looked at him curiously.

       Chen Yuncheng nodded at her.

       The nurse smiled and said, “I’ve seen you before, you’re Chief Ning’s friend, right? Are you looking for him?”

       Chen Yuncheng stood up and said, “Yes, when will he probably be back?”

       The nurse said, “The operation is ongoing. But it seems to be taking quite a long time, so I guess it’s almost time to be done. Just wait a little longer.” The nurse left after speaking.

       Chen Yuncheng then sat down again, leaned back and waited. He took out his mobile phone and glanced at it, and thought that if he couldn’t wait for Ning Junyan until six o’clock, he would only go to Sun Shiliang first, and try to contact Ning Junyan later.

       In the end, he waited for about half an hour and saw Ning Junyan’s figure appearing in the corridor.

       Ning Junyan was wearing a white coat, his hair was slightly damp, and his tall and straight figure was slowly approaching from a distance. When Chen Yuncheng saw him, he obviously saw Chen Yuncheng too, but no expression could be seen on his face.

       Chen Yuncheng stood up and was just about to speak when a young doctor with a medical record book stopped Ning Junyan’s path and opened the book in his hand to say something to him.

       Ning Junyan withdrew his gaze from Chen Yuncheng, looked at the medical record in front of him, flipped through the pages with his hands, turned around and followed the young doctor out.

Chapter 63

       Time seemed to freeze briefly between the two of them. Chen Yuncheng kept looking at Ning Junyan. He felt that a long time had passed, but in fact, it was only a minute or two.

       Nevertheless, Ning Junyan let go of Chen Yuncheng’s hand. He remained silent, threw Chen Yuncheng’s wrinkled jeans on the edge of the bathtub, and untied the belt that tied Chen Yuncheng’s wrist.

       Because it was too tight, it took Ning Junyan himself some time to loosen the belt completely.

       Chen Yuncheng lowered his head and saw two deep marks on his wrists, which were already red and purple in colour.

       Ning Junyan stretched out his hand to pick up Chen Yun Cheng, who was still kneeling in the bathtub. Chen Yuncheng’s body was visibly tense, and he pushed Ning Junyan with his hand, who said, “I won’t touch you.”

       Chen Yuncheng was carried to sit on the bed and then watched Ning Junyan go into the bathroom and take out his pants.

       Ning Junyan squatted down beside the bed and helped Chen Yuncheng put on his pants.

       Chen Yuncheng could have done it himself, but he didn’t stop Ning Junyan. He knew that Ning Junyan was feeling bad, and he himself was feeling equally bad.

       The tools that Ning Junyan had brought back were still scattered on the bed, and Chen Yuncheng felt upset after seeing them.

       After he helped Chen Yuncheng put on his trousers, Ning Junyan went to get Chen Yuncheng’s coat. The corners of his eyes were still slightly red, but his expression was cold, and after putting on the coat to Chen Yuncheng, he said, “Let’s go, wherever you want to go, I will drive you.”

       Chen Yuncheng nodded.

       Ning Junyan drove Chen Yuncheng away. Chen Yuncheng planned to go to the commercial market to find a daily rental house first, so he asked Ning Junyan to take him directly to the market, but Ning Junyan said nothing and drove Chen Yuncheng there in silence.

       It was only the seventh day of the Chinese New Year, and although many people had already started working, for many others, the year was not yet over.

       There were not many cars on the streets, and the area of the trade market was also deserted.

       Chen Yuncheng sat in the passenger seat, rubbed his strangled wrist subconsciously, and stared out of the car window, mentally exhausted.

       Ning Junyan parked his car in the parking lot outside the trade market, which was empty, with hardly any cars.

       Chen Yuncheng looked at him and said, “Thank you.”

       Ning Junyan opened the car door, got out of the car and helped Chen Yuncheng take out the suitcase.

       Chen Yuncheng took the suitcase and put it at his feet. When he saw that Ning Junyan turned to get into the car, he reached out and grabbed Ning Junyan’s sleeve.

       Ning Junyan stopped and looked down at his hands.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “There is one thing I haven’t had time to say before. That Yu Jie. Tell your mother to be careful about him.”

       “Which Yu Jie?” Ning Junyan’s voice was a little hoarse.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “The one who was eating at your house that day. Although I don’t know what he is doing now, he had cheated on my friend before and was doing illegal business at that time. I’m afraid that something will happen if your mother does business with him.”

       Ning Junyan nodded, he didn’t say anything and opened the driver’s door to get in the car.

       Chen Yuncheng had been standing on the side of the road looking at him, with two suitcases leaning against his legs.

       After Ning Junyan got into the car, he didn’t look this way again. He reversed the car sharply, then turned the car around, and drove the car out of the parking lot.

       The speed was too fast, Chen Yuncheng subconsciously stepped forward to tell him to drive carefully, but he couldn’t say it out.

       Chen Yuncheng knew that there was no way to get out of Ning Junyan’s place easily today, but he hadn’t expected it to come to such a state.

       When Ning Junyan was being harsh, he was very angry. He couldn’t accept Ning Junyan treating him like this. At that time, every word said at that time was from his heart, but once Ning Junyan compromised, he immediately softened his heart, like he had done something wrong to Ning Junyan. The bruises on his wrist were still clearly visible and he was already starting to feel guilty.

       Chen Yuncheng pushed his two suitcases and walked slowly outside the parking lot.

       The trade market was on the outskirts of the northern city. It was a newly developed site with very few high-rise buildings around it. There were still old buildings and narrow streets on the outskirts of the city. It was easy to rent a room in such a place, and it was all very cheap.

       Chen Yuncheng rented a daily rental room, which the landlord had partitioned from a large room, with no windows and only a pale white fluorescent light overhead.

       He had little appetite for lunch, and Chen Yuncheng didn’t leave the room until evening to find something to eat.

       The New Year was not yet over, and many shops were open during the day but closed early in the afternoon, so it was not easy to find a small restaurant that was open.

       As Chen Yuncheng walked outside, he didn’t know if it was in his mind, but he felt that the temperature here was even lower than in the city centre, and when the cold wind blew over, he unconsciously wrapped his thin down jacket tightly.

       Later, he found a small restaurant, which was opened by an outlander. When he sat down to eat, Chen Yuncheng chatted with the owner. The owner said that he hadn’t been back for the New Year, and the restaurant was open for the whole New Year.

       He asked for a gaifan1Gaifan or gaijiaofan is a type of dish in Chinese cuisine typically offered in low-cost establishments. It consists of a fish, meat, or vegetable topping served over rice..

       At this time, he was the only customer in the store, and the owner put the plate of gaifan on his table, and sat not far away, staring at the empty street outside in a daze.

       Chen Yuncheng mixed the rice with a spoon.

       The boss turned his head and saw the mark on his wrist. He let out an “ouch”, and asked, “What happened to your hand?”

       By this time, the strangle marks were completely bruised and looked a little gruesome.

       Chen Yuncheng smiled and said, “It’s nothing, I accidentally hurt it.”

       The owner asked him, “You’re working before the end of the year?”

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Yes, I have to eat.”

       The owner nodded and seemed to empathise with him. He lifted one leg and bent it over the other, saying, “Money is not easy to earn.”

       After eating, Chen Yuncheng went back to the daily rental place alone.

       At this time, the sky was completely dark, and most of the houses on the side of the road were closed and their lights were turned off. Only the cold white street lamps illuminated the road in front of them.

       When Chen Yuncheng walked halfway, his phone rang. He stopped, took out his phone and took a look, and saw that it was Guan Anlin calling.

       After he answered the phone, the two chatted for a while, Guan Anlin heard that he had moved out, and asked him if he was going to start work.

       Chen Yuncheng said, “Boss Sun said that some workers would be back tomorrow, so he asked me to keep an eye at it. After the Chinese New Year, the store can almost open for business.”

       Guan Anlin heard the words and said, “Then I’ll come back early.”

       After they chatted a few more words, the two hung up the phone.

       Chen Yuncheng was still standing on the side of the road, with a lonely back. He swiped his fingers in the phone address book for a long time, finally found Ning Junyan’s number, and called Ning Junyan.

       He had said before that even if he moved out temporarily, his relationship with Ning Junyan would still not change. He didn’t know whether Ning Junyan believed him or not, but he hoped to put Ning Junyan’s mind at ease.

       But Ning Junyan didn’t answer the call.

       Chen Yuncheng raised his head and looked at the street back and forth in a daze. He waited for a long time until the phone hung up automatically, then he put the phone back into his trouser pocket, put his hands into his jacket pockets and continued walking towards the front.

       He had grown up with more experiences than others, and he often told himself to be content, or he would be unhappy. So he asked for less than other children, and he felt satisfied when his foster parents gave him a bite to eat.

       It was not that he was cheaper than others, it was just that he would not be satisfied if he expected too much. So it was better to ask for less and live happily instead.

       He used to tell others that he wanted to find an ordinary girl to be with, but he had never found one, and he had always resisted the relationships, fearing that the more he invested, the more he would be hurt in the end. He sometimes felt that his way of thinking was unhealthy. This might be related to the fact that he had no parents and no complete family. On the surface, he was all about giving and did not need others to reciprocate, but in reality, he was afraid of not getting anything in return, so it was better not to ask for extravagant things.

       Ning Junyan’s way of thinking was also unhealthy in Chen Yuncheng’s view. Chen Yuncheng thought of his parents and the four years they lived and grew up together. Perhaps Ning’s dysfunction was also due to his lack of a sound family.

       So they were both very insecure and while Chen Yuncheng’s lack of security led him to resist, Ning Junyan was overly solicitous. Their mental health brought them to where they are today. Chen Yuncheng just wanted to take a step back to calm himself down, but he didn’t know if Ning Junyan had decided to give up.

       Chen Yuncheng was very sad.

       At the same time, Ning Junyan had a headache. He sat on the bed alone, wrapped the metal chain around his wrist twice, and watched the end of the chain hang down, dangling in front of him.

       He also ordered a pair of handcuffs and a collar, both of which were made of metal and covered with a layer of soft leather. Although he let Chen Yuncheng go, he did not intend to return them.

       The headache started in the afternoon. He was standing by the bed trying to pack up the things in the toolbox, but he started to have a headache after half of the packing. He didn’t continue and just lay down on the bed and fell asleep.

       It was already dark when he woke up, and Ning Junyan did not want to eat. He sat on the bed and fiddled with the chain he bought. He originally planned for one end to be fixed into the wall, and the other end was movable and could be replaced with handcuffs or a collar that could be worn on Chen Yuncheng’s body, so that Chen Yuncheng could move around from the room to the bathroom, and the lock cannot be unlocked without his key.

       He knew it was against the law. He had studied for many years, and his legal knowledge was more abundant than many people, but when he was doing this, his mind was empty, and his only thought was not to let Chen Yuncheng leave.

       He was not afraid of breaking the law, but he was afraid that Chen Yuncheng would not forgive him, so he still failed to do so.

       When the mobile phone on the bedside table rang, Ning Junyan turned his head to take a look. He saw Chen Yuncheng’s name, but he didn’t answer it.

       At this moment, he had a headache again. He threw the metal chain aside, went to the medicine box outside to find a painkiller, and then went back to the room and slept directly on the side where Chen Yuncheng slept. The pillow seemed to still smell of Chen Yuncheng, Ning Junyan lay on his side, pulling the quilt over his head. Before he fell asleep, he thought about how he had to work tomorrow and how he had scheduled an operation in the morning, and how his custom-made collar was coming soon, so he really wanted to put it on Chen Yuncheng himself…

Chapter 10

       Xu Ye felt like he had been doused cold by a bucket of water, his face froze, and he lowered his head in frustration. At this moment, his wrist was grabbed by a warm hand and before he could react, he was pulled into a firm chest. Above his head, there was a man’s low and smiling voice, “Only I can hold you.1Xu Ye was asking before if he could hold him and here he was saying that only he could hold Xu Ye and not the other way


       The light scent lingered on the tip of his nose, and he could feel the steady and powerful heartbeat in his chest as Xu Ye put his arms around his waist, curled up his legs, and lay in his arms completely relaxed. He finally found himself hopelessly addicted to it. Even though the temperature in the house was set at a comfortable level for naked bodies, he just wanted the warmth in this embrace.


       The man’s hand descended from his head, gently stroking his smooth back.


       Nothing erotic, just soothing.


       “This afternoon, you were resisting so fiercely. Why?”


       Xu Ye’s body obviously stiffened for a moment, and after a moment of silence, he opened his mouth and said, “I went out with friends in the circle before, and a group of people got drunk, so they found a hotel to rest. I didn’t drink too much and was woken up in the middle of the night by screaming from next door, the sound was terrible… I asked someone to open the door, only to find out that the two who stayed next door had actually lost control of themselves after drinking and r4p3d a young male waiter…” He paused for a moment before continuing, “When I entered the room, I saw that the waiter was covered in blood…on the bed sheets and also on the carpet…and called 120 to save his life. After that I never went out with those people again, I heard that the matter was settled with money.”


       It was not uncommon for the pampered sons of a wealthy family to get together and let loose, but it was something that Xu Ye couldn’t tolerate, and then he kept a distance from those people after that. The shocking sight of that incident cast a shadow over him. So later, even though Xu Ye let others use intense methods to induce pleasure, and used some toys appropriately, he never allowed others to really use their sexual organs to enter his body.


       “Did my actions this afternoon remind you of this?”


       He nodded.


       “You have trauma on this matter, and you dare to choose a stranger to be your master. Are you not afraid that I will do to you what some doms do?” The man asked.


       “I thought at the time that if you forced me to do something I didn’t want to do, I could resist.” Xu Ye answered honestly.


       “Why didn’t you resist this afternoon?”


       “You said you would ensure my safety.” He tilted his face up, and his eyes glowed like obsidian under the light.


       What kind of illogical trust is this? The man was stunned, then lowered his eyes and smiled, “Xu Ye, although I will try my best to keep the situation under control, I don’t know what you’ve been through and I can’t predict your reaction perfectly every time. That was the case this afternoon, and even though I stopped in time, I still made you feel overly panicked, I’m sorry.”


       He was apologising.


       Xu Ye was completely stunned and looked at him closely with a pair of big eyes.


       There was no trace of teasing in the eyes of the man in front of him. The man was serious.


       “…It’s because of me, it has nothing to do with you…It’s because I forgot to do what you asked…” Xu Ye said. The apology made him nervous instead, and the guilt that swept over him made him unconsciously clutching at the man’s shirt.


       “Relax.” The hand that rested on his back patted him gently, “This is not an apology from a master to a slave, but an apology from me to you as an equal. The master-slave relationship is a matter between two people, and I will take on the responsibilities that come with being a master, and you will need to give feedback and cooperate, such as the communication like now, so that I can get to know you better.” The man’s hand stroked his back, leaving a warm touch, “To ensure that I can sense your tolerance boundaries in time for some situations, I will let you pick a safe word. Whenever you say that word, I will stop anything that could hurt you.”


       “Can any word be used?” Xu Ye blinked.


       “Preferably not common words, or words that may be used frequently in the course of behaviour, such as ‘don’t’, ‘stop’, ‘it hurts’, and so on. Such words will make it impossible for me to tell if you are really in danger and it may also arouse my interest in continuing to go deeper.”


       Xu Ye thought about it, looked at him, thought about it again, and finally made up his mind, “Can I use your name as the safe word?”


       The man looked directly at him with his dark black eyes, “You don’t know my name.”


       “No, I don’t know.” He buried his head down again in frustration, his voice muffled with strange emotions, “So if you don’t tell me, I won’t have safe words for a day.”


       The man smiled, “Don’t regret it when the time comes.” With that, he gave him an uncomfortable slap on the buttocks, the pain woke him up and Xu Ye sucked in a breath. “Next time you’re punished I might blow your ass open.”


       “You won’t.” Xu Ye raised his eyebrows, his tone full of determination. After a while, he seemed to remember something and asked, “I have a question…”


       “Go on.”


       “If… I mean, if I had made preparations at that time, would you… have done it?” He finished speaking intermittently, his cheeks flushed again.


       “Would you like for me to continue?” The man asked with a smile.


       He didn’t speak and held his tongue for a long time. He finally buried himself in the man’s arms and moved his head up and down slightly.


       The man couldn’t help laughing, “Aren’t you afraid?”


       “…I don’t know.” Xu Ye’s face was burning hot. At that moment he was aroused by the man’s provocation, and found that he did not reject the man’s entry, and even had a little expectation in his imagination.


       “No.” The man gave him the answer.


       “Why?” Xu Ye was surprised, he obviously reacted back then, didn’t he?


       “Some things lose their meaning if they go too fast, and it’s my pleasure to be in charge of the rhythm of it all.” The man said leisurely.


       Sure enough, all doms are control freaks. Xu Ye thought.


       They chatted a lot. As Xu Ye guessed, the man had a wide range of knowledge. He had read almost all the books in that study room. They had a lot of common understanding, and the topics jump from travel, sports, and movies to finance and corporate culture, and to psychology. The man’s theoretical sophistication in BDSM was outrageous. When he said that Foucault2Paul-Michel Foucault was a French philosopher, historian of ideas, writer, political activist, and literary critic. Foucault’s theories primarily address the relationship between power and knowledge, and how they are used as a form of social control through societal institutions. used ‘infinite imagination of desire’ to describe this irrational relationship, Xu Ye smiled empathetically. In the process of being controlled, he couldn’t see himself, but he could imagine his body flushed and humiliated when he was whipped. Such imagination stimulated his desire and gave him pleasure. This was not substantially different from ordinary men masturbating to an AV3adult video. The man told him about the development history of SM, the psychological needs of sadism (the tendency to abuse) and masochism (the tendency to be abused), and also talked about the current situation of the entire domestic circle.


       Xu Ye would offer some of his own opinions and ask questions from time to time. Now he understood why a dom has many subs because the ratio of the number of people between the two was very different. The reason why the number of subs was much higher than the number of doms was that most of the time subs only need to simply obey, while dom needs to control everything by himself which was actually quite tiring. If you compare BDSM to performance; the dom, as the main character, had to organise everything from the script onwards, from the timing of the scenes to the handling of props and expression language. In a sense, everything the dom did was in service to the sub, to give him pleasure. So an excellent dom must be very calm, while he controlled the sub, he must also control himself. And those doms who only use tyrannical means to satisfy their own desires were not welcome.


       Xu Ye quietly looked at the man beside him and felt very lucky in his heart.


       He was undoubtedly the best of the doms. He was strong and gentle, like a king, possessed dignified decisiveness to kill, but also has gentle tenderness.


       Time passed quickly, and before he knew it, the clock was ticking past nine, Xu Ye asked, “Don’t I need to go to the cage tonight?” He remembered that the man once said that he would give him orders every Saturday night.


       “No need.” The man patted his still slightly red buttocks, “After taking a bath, put on the ointment and go to bed. I put the ointment by your bedside.” Xu Ye nodded and heard the man add, “If you can’t sleep or wake up from a nightmare, you can call me on my mobile. You have to have breakfast ready by eight o’clock tomorrow morning.”


       Xu Ye thought he would not be able to sleep.


       He didn’t have difficulties sleeping in a bed other than his own, but it was too early for him. He hadn’t been in bed before ten since he was at university.


       This day’s slave life was new and interesting to him. He entered the state much faster than he had imagined. When he lay down, his mind was peaceful, not full of confusion and entanglement as usual. All those desires that couldn’t be aroused and had nowhere to go, restless emotions, doubts about himself, and trivial matters at work seem to have disappeared, and his mind and body relaxed on the soft bed.


       The only voice in his head was that of the man, low and gentle, echoing faintly.


       He fell asleep quickly and was woken up by the alarm clock next to his pillow at seven o’clock in the morning.


       It had rained last night, quite heavily by the looks of it, but he hadn’t known anything about it. It seemed a long time since he had slept so deeply. Xu Ye got up and stretched his muscles in the courtyard. The leaves were still covered in raindrops and the air smelt damp.


       At half past seven he returned to the house, took off his clothes, put on his apron and began to make breakfast. Uncle Ye had already prepared the ingredients last night and specially told him how to make fried eggs well. Despite the theoretical guidance, it was still difficult to put into practice. It was either too raw or too burnt. After frying six eggs in a row, Xu Ye finally had a finished product that looked good. The man asked for a simple breakfast of bread, fried eggs, ham or bacon, juice or milk.


       It was five minutes before eight o’clock when everything was laid out on the table, and Xu Ye stood hovering at the entrance to the stairs. In fact, his curiosity about the man had reached its peak, and he had been calculating the thoughts of ‘He would definitely not wear a mask when he sleeps’, and ‘If I go in now, maybe I can see his face’ and other thoughts. But a voice on the other side warned him ‘He forbids you to see and you should not violate’, and ‘If you do this, you will be punished severely’, so he hesitated, pacing around like an ant on a hot pan. It was only when he saw the man in the light grey mask coming down the stairs that he hid his regretful little thoughts and smiled up at him, showing his neatly set teeth, “Good morning, Master.”

Chapter 9

       “Now do you know if I am feeling it?” The upward trailing ending tone intoxicated him as the man intensified his tongue lapping at his ear. The wet and soft touch teased the weak ear, which made Xu Ye couldn’t help but tremble involuntarily. “Looking at your reddened chest from the whipping, your buttocks that were exposed outside your apron when you washed the dishes, the way you cried at my feet, and now, your trembling body…” He paused and sucked Xu Ye’s reddened earlobe in his mouth, and rubbed it lightly with the tip of his tongue and teeth, every word entered into his ear along the capillary, “Everything is going to give me some sensation.”


       A low gasp escaped Xu Ye’s throat, tinged with suppressed urgency. He was unable to resist such ambiguous and extreme verbal teasing, he could only let the tide of emotion turn over as his strength seemed to be pulled away little by little. He leaned forward on the man unconsciously, the frequency of each other’s heartbeat and breathing intertwined, closer, more intimate, more uncontrollable.


       “Look at you, we’re just merely talking and it already excites you…” The man’s hand on his back slowly slid down, his fingers lingering in the crease, and slowly pulling it out to close it, getting infinitely closer to Xu Ye’s hidden area without actually entering it. Xu Ye was helpless against his teasing and was slowly cooked like a potsticker. “Little slave, you are so lewd.” The last two words were spoken close to his ears, and his lips touched the part where the delicate vein of his ear could be seen, causing him to pant unbearably. The transparent liquid seeped out from the aroused lower body, like pitiful tears. Xu Ye couldn’t help reaching out to touch it but was firmly restrained.


       “Tell me, what do you want?” The man’s fingers stopped at the entrance of his arsehole, and his voice was full of temptation.


       “Master, it hurts…” Xu Ye was so turned on that his ability to think was gone, he just looked at the other party mournfully, rubbing his lower body on the bathrobe.


       “That’s not an accurate answer.” The man’s fingers circled viciously behind him.


       “Hold me…” He struggled to utter these two words with a flushed face, feeling that his whole body was roasted. The feeling of being forced to beg someone for sex made Xu Ye unable to lift his head in embarrassment, and there was only one sentence in his chaotic mind, “Please let me cum…”


       The man hooked his lips and smiled, “If you’re asking, shouldn’t you be a little more sincere?”


       Xu Ye’s eyes closed as his ability to think was clouded by his desire, and he opened his mouth again in desperation, “Master, en…please hold me…”


       “Not so fast, I need you to recall the rules.” The man pressed his lower back and pressed him into his arms. “What did I ask you to do after cleaning?” Xu Ye tilted his neck softly, staring at him blankly. It wasn’t until he was slapped on the butt that his eyes became clear. “… Lubrication.” He finally remembered, and his face went white, it was something he had forgotten to do after the shower.


       Xu Ye was a little flustered to find that at some point the lust in the man’s eyes gradually faded, replaced by that familiar, unsettling, smirking expression.


       “Since you begged me like this, I shall make your wish come true.” Before the words were out of his mouth, the fingers that had stopped outside his arsehole squeezed in abruptly, making  Xu Ye cry out in surprise, and wanted to shrink forward, only to be held against the man’s body tightly.


       The closed canal was forcibly stretched open by the intruding foreign object, and the dryness increased the resistance and made the discomfort intensify. Xu Ye buried his head in the man’s chest, trembling and panting, trying to soften his waist and force himself to adapt. As the invading fingers reached the second one, the friction of the penetration caused pain in the canal. He whimpered and tightened the muscles on the inner thigh, pleading almost in tears, “Master…it hurts… “


       “It’s too early to call it pain. My size is many times thicker than this, which can give you a good sense of what pain is.”


       He wants to do it without lubricant!


       Xu Ye, who understood what it meant, turned pale. He was trembling all over and wanted to push away the person who was suppressing him, but he was pressed hard by the person on the kitchen bar. In terms of strength, he was no match for the opponent, which exacerbated Xu Ye’s panic.


       “Don’t move.” The eyes behind the mask were as cold as frost and snow, and a condescending sense of oppression came immediately. “You know very well that I can do anything to you, and if I want to use you, you must spread your legs and let me use them, whether you are ready or not. Since you’re too lazy to do the preparation, I don’t mind letting you wet yourself with your body’s own fluids. You can pray that later you have enough blood to make things go well for me.”


       Xu Ye’s face turned pale in such shock, even his desire disappeared, and he cowered in fear. When the man forcibly pulled one of his legs away, he grabbed the man’s arm with a firm grip and screamed with his eyes closed. The shrill ‘don’t’ echoed in the room, with a bit like a heartbreaking scream.


       Time seemed to stand still. There was no sound or movement, only the uncontrollable trembling of Xu Ye’s body. He opened his eyes cautiously and met the gaze of the man looking down at him from behind his mask.


       The man didn’t do anything, just looked at him quietly, his dark black lashes forming a small projection that made his eyes look even deeper. Such a subdued posture gave Xu Ye a deeper understanding of who was in charge, and he didn’t dare to move a muscle beneath him.


       “Remember this lesson, slave, there will be no next time.” The man let go of his hand.


       It took Xu Ye a long time to calm down from the panic he had felt just now. He realised that the man was letting him go, so he lowered his head and whispered, “Master, I’m sorry…”


       “Get up.” The man took out a wet towel and wiped his hands.


       Xu Ye didn’t feel the hardness and coldness of the bar countertop until now, and slowly got up. He was so frightened just now that his legs went numb and almost fell over.


       The man wrapped his arms around his waist to support him to stand still. The man lowered his head to examine his lower back and legs carefully, and asked, “Does it hurt anywhere?”


       “No.” Xu Ye felt an inexplicable emotion in his heart. He sniffed and said, “No, it doesn’t hurt.”


       “Go upstairs and get dressed, the chef will be here soon.” The man glanced at the wall clock on the wall and said.


       Xu Ye went obediently.


       The man’s home chef was a very talkative uncle surnamed Ye, who was a little fat, with curved eyebrows and kind eyes. He didn’t mention where he worked, but Xu Ye felt that there was a hidden aura about him, the calmness in his cooking that was similar to that of the chefs in his restaurant. The ingredients were all brought by the uncle, and the pattern changes every meal. He started with the selection of ingredients and explained to Xu Ye in great detail the preparation and key points of each dish, including a lot of knowledge about nutrition. As for things other than cooking, he didn’t mention a word.


       Xu Ye learnt very seriously, washing and chopping vegetables in a decent manner, and while peeling the potatoes he asked, “Uncle Ye, how long have you been working here?”


       “Almost two years.” The old man took a look and frowned, “The skin is too thick, keep your movement light.”


       “Uh.” He looked up and scanned the ground floor and asked softly, “Does Uncle Ye know what his full name is?” This was a tricky question. Xu Ye actually didn’t know what the man’s name was, and the man didn’t even tell him his last name, but it was as if he knew everything when he asked about it this way, just that he couldn’t tell which characters were which because of the many homophones in Chinese characters1Xu Ye was asking the character in the man’s name.


       The chef looked up at him, “Why don’t you ask him yourself?”


       “…I’m embarassed.” The trick didn’t work, Xu Ye concealed his disappointment and made excuses. The uncle squinted his eyes and smiled, which made him feel like he was being seen through. He thought to himself that this uncle was just a tricky old fox who wouldn’t fall for a trap. After peeling potatoes for a while, he couldn’t help asking: “Were there more people….living with him in this house before?”


       The uncle cut the green pepper and smiled, “You’re too embarrassed to ask him, but you have the nerve to ask me?”


       Xu Ye lowered his head in frustration, grabbed three peeled potatoes and went to cut them, the knife clattered on the chopping board, and he could be seen incredibly frustrated from the back of his head.


       Dinner was still served by the masked man, and he was responsible for tidying up after eating. During the whole process, the man didn’t say anything except “Bring another bowl”. Xu Ye didn’t dare to look at the man’s face after the fright in the afternoon, and now he was doing things in silence, not daring to say a word. After he heated a cup of milk for the man and put it on the tea table as requested, he was left standing in a state of confusion without being given his next order.


       The man sat on the sofa and patted the position beside him. Xu Ye thought for a long time, but didn’t remember the command gesture, and looked at him blankly.


       “Xu Ye, come and sit down.”


       He was taken aback. The man called him by his name, meaning to return him to his equal status. He stood for a while, with tangled struggles on his face, and finally walked over to sit down, gritted his teeth, and asked in a muffled voice, “Do you not want me?”


       The man seemed a little surprised, and asked with a smile, “Why do you think so?”


       “I made you angry, and you don’t even want to punish me.” Xu Ye lowered his head, his dark brown hair covered his eyes, and he looked a little depressed.


       “Do you think that I didn’t punish you because I want to get rid of you?” The man laughed when he saw that he was really upset about what happened this afternoon, “If I wanted to end a relationship, I would have made it very clear.”


       Xu Ye pursed his lips and turned to look at him.


       “As for me not punishing you, it’s because I think you have learned your lesson. Punishment is not something I am keen on, nor should it be something you are obsessed with. I punish you only to regulate your behaviour and to reinforce your awareness of your identity as a slave. You should remember this.” The man took a sip from the white porcelain cup on the table and handed it to him, “It’s not hot anymore, drink it. You ate too little tonight.”


       Xu Ye took the cup, and the warm milky fragrance passed over the tip of his nose along with the warm vapour, making his nose a little sore.


       “Did I scare you this afternoon?” The man’s voice was very gentle and magnetic and easily attracted his attention.


       Xu Ye nodded, then shook his head again after a while.


       When the man saw his dumbfounded look, he laughed softly and said, “Scared silly?”


       “Master, am I free to move about now?” Xu Ye asked suddenly.


       “Of course. Now is the time for equal dialogue, so you can tell me what you think and let me know how you feel.”


       He saw Xu Ye tilt his head and drank the milk from the glass, then licked the froth from his lips, and put the glass down. As if mustering up the courage, moved a little closer to the man, paused, moved a little closer and stammered, “I want to…” He looked at the other party and changed his wording, “Can I… hold you.”


       Seeing him looking at him with a red face, the man smiled, and his thin lips parted slightly, “No.
