The man carried him straight into the guest room. Xu Ye blushed and asked to wash by himself. After he took a shower, he stood in front of the bathroom mirror to examine the marks on his body.


       His skin was quite fair, making those whip marks very visible, like bright lines on a canvas, creating a decadent and seductive appearance. The whip marks on the chest and back were in perfect harmony, symmetrical from side to side, and his buttocks were red like a ripe peach, which was more pleasing to the eye when it was drenched in water. The redness of the whip marks was striking, but not a single spot of skin or blood was visible. The man’s control of the force was at the highest level. This made Xu Ye secretly wonder how many subs he had practised with.


       He wiped off the water with a bath towel, and then went downstairs in a bathrobe.


       Several dishes were still steaming on the large western table, but the chef had already left. The man sat at the table waiting for him, the mask on his face was replaced by a lighter silver mask. Xu Ye took off the bathrobe with some disappointment and hung it on the hanger. He would have liked to have seen the chef, at least with a third person present he could have covered the marks with the robe.


       The body was once again completely exposed to the air and to the man’s sight. Xu Ye didn’t even dare to recall the scene just now—he was bullied to the point of crying like a child. It was so embarrassing and humiliating, that he now blushed unconsciously at the sight of the man.


       The man inspected him for a while, then patted his thigh lightly with his right hand.


       Xu Ye’s mind searched his brain like an electrical charge for a response to this command and quickly walked over to him and knelt down at his feet.


       “Good boy.” The man patted his head, “Let me tell you about the rules of dining. When the chef comes over, you will open the door, help him cook and send him away, and then come to inform me about the meal. I will let him teach you cooking techniques, and you must try your best to learn them. During the meal, you will keep kneeling by my lap unless I make a special request. After the meal, you will be responsible for clearing the tableware and washing the dishes.” Seeing Xu Ye’s somewhat stiff expression, he asked, “Is there a problem?”


       “Master, will I have to eat on my knees from now on?” He was frowning, he couldn’t get his hands on the food at all…


       The man looked at him and curled his lips, “Today I can allow you to sit and eat.”


       Xu Ye was taken aback for a moment, and immediately reacted, shaking his head like a rattle, “No need, master, I’d better kneel.” His buttocks were red like that, and the kneeling posture didn’t hurt, but once he sat down, it would hurt like hell, and it was equivalent to hitting him all over again.


       “Slave, it breaks my heart that you don’t want a rare benefit when I offer you one.” The smile in the man’s eyes intensified.


       This was not a benefit. This was simply punishment in disguise! Xu Ye cried out in his heart, with an aggrieved expression on his face, “Can I wear lighter clothes when I’m learning to cook? Bathrobes and nightgowns are inconvenient…”


       “You can wear the house clothes from the wardrobe in your room.”


       “I have no problem…” His stomach growled twice. He hadn’t eaten anything since morning, and he was already hungry now.


       “Go serve the rice.” The man ordered.


       Xu Ye rummaged through the kitchen cupboard and took out two bone china bowls with a vertical pattern and gold applique. First, he served a bowl of rice from the rice cooker, placed it in front of the man with both hands, and then the chopsticks and gave them to him. Then he went to fill his own bowl, took the chopsticks and knelt down. In the meantime, he took a few moments to glance at the dishes on the table.


       Curry beef, Longjing shrimp, scrambled egg with green pepper, broccoli in soup, and braised Chinese cabbage.


       The nutritional balance of meat and vegetables was just well proportioned. It seemed that his master paid attention to his diet.


       It was only when he started to eat that Xu Ye realised he didn’t need to think about how to serve the food at all. With the man taking care of everything, all he had to do was eat.


       Xu Ye didn’t like to eat broccoli, so he left all the broccoli the man gave him in the bowl, and tried to throw it away when he went to get his second bowl of rice. As a result, when he looked up, he saw the chopsticks with the broccoli in front of him. The man looked at him with a smirk and ordered, “Open your mouth.”


       Xu Ye took the broccoli with a bitter face, took a few bites perfunctorily, and swallowed it.


       “Do you want to finish the bowl, or do you want me to feed you the rest of the plate, one bite at a time?”


       “I can’t eat it…” Xu Ye muttered sullenly and ate the broccoli in the bowl.


       He was a fast eater. The disharmony in his family had made him feel insecure since he was a child, and the same goes for eating. He was the only one at the big dining table, and he was always used to taking a few quick bites and leaving. Later on, he was busy with work, and he wanted to do everything perfectly so that Xu Ting would not look down on him, so he was not too careful about eating. In addition, he was hungry today, and he ate more fiercely, and he finished the whole bowl in no time.


       “Why are you in such a hurry?” the man asked.


       He was stunned, “I’m used to it, and it’s sort of efficient.”


       “It’s not necessary.” The man picked up a piece of beef and put it in his bowl, “Eating too fast will put a strain on your stomach and make you sick in the long run. Besides, you don’t need to rush, and even if you finish eating, you’d have to kneel here until I’m finished. So, slave, you must learn to enjoy the taste of food slowly.”


       Xu Ye thought about it, deliberately increased the number of times of chews, and slowed down the speed.


       Although he lived alone, there were part-time workers cleaning the house on a regular basis, and he rarely cooked by himself or do much dishwashing. So his movements were very rusty. In addition, the feeling of being naked and wearing an apron was very uncomfortable… Well, the most important reason was that the man leaned against the kitchen bar and looked at him, making his hands and feet stiff.


       “Master…” Xu Ye held the plate that he accidentally chipped, and said awkwardly, “I get nervous when you look at me like that.”


       “Break one and you’ll be punished with an hour on your knees.” The man had no intention of looking away and laughed, “That’ll help you hold it steady, my slave.”


       Afterwards, Xu Ye really held it very firmly, until it was dried and put into the disinfection cabinet, and not a single dish was broken.


       The man sat on the sofa in the living room and summoned him, and Xu Ye quickly appeared like a summoned beast.


       This terrible obedience was something he couldn’t extricate himself from. But this feeling made him feel relieved, to let himself go, to focus all his attention on that man, and to obey.


       “Lie down on my lap.” The order was simple and direct.


       He leaned on the man’s leg a little shyly but got a slap on the buttocks. Although it was not heavy, it triggered the pain before, and he let out an “Ack”.


       “Up a bit.”


       Xu Ye moved forward like a caterpillar, his naked lower body rubbing against the surface of the man’s trousers, arousing tiny desires in his body. He was almost going crazy, he was clearly sexually frigid before, how could he look like he couldn’t resist the slightest temptation now?


       The more he tried to control it, the more uncontrollable it became. He tried to extinguish the small flames, but when the man moved his legs slightly as he turned to his side to get something, the feeling brought by the friction was transmitted to his limbs, completely burning up Xu Ye’s fire.


       As he sensed the reaction of Xu Ye’s lower body, the man chuckled and said, “Slave, although I’m glad that your body is so sensitive, you cannot cum without my permission, so you’d better restrain yourself lest I use another way to help you restrain yourself.”


       “Yes, Master.” Xu Ye blushed and lowered his head.


       He shivered as something cold landed on his buttocks, and then felt a warm hand slowly push the thing away, stroking his buttocks. The cool sensation penetrated his skin, which was very comfortable.


       The man was rubbing medicine on him.


       Xu Ye was in a daze for a moment. When he had been with Camel, although the other party was not vicious, he was not as meticulous as the masked man. Most of the time, he dealt with the wounds from the whipping by himself. He hesitated for a long time, and said softly, “Thank you, master.”


       The man’s hand movement paused, and he said, “You can move freely within my sight in the afternoon, and you don’t need to report to me when you leave for a short time like going to the bathroom.” After he said that, he rubbed him for a while and patted him on the back, “Okay, get up.”


       In the afternoon, a man checks his email on a tablet. Xu Ye picked a comfortable position and lay down on the cushion by the window to read a book, which was a copy of ‘Chinese Cuisine and Culture’ drawn from the bookshelf. He had been so exhausted the last few days that he felt relaxed by the greenery and soft sunshine outside the window. His eyelids were heavy, he glanced at the sofa not far away in a daze, curled up and fell asleep peacefully.


       It was already four o’clock in the afternoon when he woke up, and a thin blanket was covering his body.


       “Are you awake?” A deep voice came from behind him.


       As soon as Xu Ye turned his head, he saw the man in a bathrobe standing at the entrance of the building. The loosely tied bathrobe had a wide open neckline, revealing his good figure. His pale bronze skin was muscular but not overly toned, his slender physique enhanced by the muscular lines, and Apollo’s belt under the abdominal muscles was very sexy. He had obviously just had a shower, his body still smelling damp and fresh, and the mask on his face had been replaced with a pure black one.


       He took a bath at this time, it should be because he went to the gym just now.


       When he saw Xu Ye staring at him, he smiled and said, “Why are you blushing?”


       Xu Ye looked away, and muttered in a low voice unwillingly, “I used to have an Apollo’s line before…”


       “You can go to the gym on the second floor on Sunday morning. If you are free, I will teach you.” The man took a couple of sips from a bottle of mineral water from the kitchen and added, “You’re not bad in that shape now, you’re soft to hold.”


       What do you mean, soft? Does that mean I have no muscles? Xu Ye glared at him.


       The man suppressed a smile and said, “Slave, are you provoking me?” He grabbed Xu Ye’s arm, tore off the thin blanket that was covering his body, and let him stand naked in front of him.


       The distance was too close, and Xu Ye only felt his heart beating a little chaotically.


      “You’re no good anymore after a good sleep. Who allowed you to wear a blanket, huh?” The man lowered his head and whispered in his ear. The breath landed on Xu Ye’s ears, causing a burst of tingling sensation. Such deliberate teasing made his brain almost congested. Xu Ye subconsciously wanted to back away, but someone grabbed his waist forcefully and pressed his body against it.


       Through the bathrobe, Xu Ye could clearly feel the arousal of the other party. The eyes behind the mask were in danger of gradually waking up.
