Xu Ye gave Xu Ting a call. He wanted to inquire about how Chu Yu asked for leave for him, but the other end of the phone was silent for a while and said in a deep voice, “Xu Ye, I turn a blind eye to you messing around outside. As long as you don’t harm yourself, you’re free to do as you wish with men or women. Although I’ve pushed you hard, the businesses I’ve set up are ultimately meant for you. If you don’t want to marry into the Song family, you can take your time. It doesn’t matter if the land in Donglin is not ready for development immediately. But how could you go and provoke him? How dare you go and provoke him? Do you even realize the consequences of your actions?”


       Xu Ye smiled wryly. Xu Ting has always been shrewd, but that day he looked stiff and embarrassed in front of Chu Yu. The old fox must have noticed something afterwards. He thought Xu Ye didn’t want to marry Song Yueran, so he went with Chu Yu for a piece of land. Although the motive was guessed wrong, the outcome was guessed right. Now, he’s truly trapped and unable to free himself.


       Xu Ye didn’t want to succumb and didn’t bother to explain, so he hung up hastily after saying, “I don’t need you to worry about my affairs”, spread himself out on the bed like a pancake, and let out a long sigh. For the whole morning, he didn’t step out of the guest room. For the first time, he calmly and seriously thought about life and the lofty concept of the future.


       Chu Yu’s intrusion was irresistible. From previously meeting once a week to now meeting every day in the following week, this man has completely turned his life upside down in such a forceful way, and Xu Ye knew very well that he had no ability to fight against him, so he had no choice but to submit.


       What he wanted to figure out now was the man’s purpose.


       People like Chu Yu who stood at the top of the food chain always had a strong purpose in what they did, not to mention that he was also a top dom and it was his nature to control everything. What Xu Ye did before touched the boundaries he set, and the current confinement is probably part of the training. Yesterday, he added a spectator to the original two-player game, almost highlighting his subordinate status as a slave in this room. In the blink of an eye, he began to unilaterally expand the game again.


       If the former is to force yourself to recognise one’s status and deepen one’s obedience. Then the latter is to give oneself a long-term environment in order to build a habit. From the collar on the neck to the breast ring on the chest, he was almost completely marked as a property. Such a strong and fast advance made Xu Ye frightened, especially when he found himself gradually being changed by this terrifying force.


       Chu Yu once said that in the process of BDSM, both parties should be happy, not just the abuse of one party and the humiliation of the other party. But the current situation made Xu Ye feel scared. His original intention was just to have fun through this game, but he found himself locked in a gorgeous cage and really became a pet. The thought of all those slaves kneeling in silence in harnesses at the club completely panicked him.


       But what can he do?


       Resist? The consequences of disobeying Chu Yu had already been tried yesterday, and he never wanted to be tied to that massage table to do it all over again.


       Escape? It’s absolutely impossible. If he did this, the life of being caught and brought back might be ten thousand times more difficult than it was now.


       Hunger strike? Xu Ye rubbed his deflated stomach. He didn’t eat much last night, and after being tossed around for so long, he didn’t eat breakfast today. It was already noon, and now he was so hungry. As he considered that this way of protesting was too much to torture himself, Xu Ye gave up after three seconds. In the end, he decided to wait for the man to come back and have a good talk with him. After all, Chu Yu was not an unreasonable person. As for how to persuade him to give his freedom, he still needs to carefully consider it. There was still time in the afternoon, and now he need something to eat to appease his protesting stomach.


       Xu Ye got up and opened the wardrobe. There were clothes specially prepared for him, the size was right, and they had been washed and ironed. He casually took a loose T-shirt and put it on, opened the door and went downstairs.


       After a day of high-intensity stimulation yesterday, he already had some immunity today, but he was still inevitably embarrassed when he saw Xiao Xun.


       “Young Master Xu, you’re up.” The butler smiled and explained, “Young Master told me not to disturb your rest before leaving, so he didn’t ask you to wake up for breakfast. Would you like to have lunch now?”


       Xu Ye stood on the stairs and scanned the two black-clad bodyguards at the doorway, then looked at Uncle Ye in the kitchen. The slight pain in his left chest stimulated his shame, his face turned red, and he asked, “Can you bring it to my room?”


       Xiao Xun responded almost immediately, “Of course.”


       He breathed a sigh of relief, thought for a while, and asked, “…Does the guest room have a fixed cleaning time?”


       “At three o’clock in the afternoon, you can make adjustments if you need to.”


       “I don’t need it cleaned today, I will be in the room all day.”


       “Okay. Would you like afternoon tea brought to you?”


       “No, thank you.” Xu Ye went back to the guest room like a snail.


       After he ate, he sat in front of the computer and opened the document to sort out his thoughts and arguments one by one, but he didn’t have the slightest confidence to convince that person. Xu Ye searched for ‘Negotiation Skills’ on the internet for a long time, but found that he had no trump cards in hand at all. His mind was in chaos. He was afraid that before he finished his sentence, he would be blocked by the word “No”. As he thought that he might be imprisoned in this house in the future, he panicked and stared at the blue sky and white clouds outside the window in a daze.


       At around 4:30 in the afternoon, Xiao Xun knocked on the door and asked him to go downstairs to the study.


       He knew that Chu Yu was back.


       Xu Ye dawdled down, walked up to the man, and called softly, “Master.”


       Chu Yu sat on the sofa in the study room, flipped through the stack of materials in his hand, looked up at him, and said, “Sit down.”


       Xu Ye was taken aback.


       The man saw him unmoving and added a hint of playfulness in his tone, “Want to talk to me standing, or kneeling?”


       Xu Ye immediately sat down on the side sofa.


       Today, Chu Yu was wearing a checkered shirt, with a light blue base and white lines, giving a refreshing and vibrant look compared to the usual monotonous black, white and grey. The white trousers wrapped around the narrow hips and long legs, tailored just right. It felt like there was something different about him compared to usual.


       Upon hearing the man’s chuckle, Xu Ye finally realized that he had been staring at him for quite some time. He felt extremely embarrassed and quickly turned away, blushing.


       Chu Yu put down the materials in his hand, took the black tea that had been prepared earlier on the table, and leaned leisurely on the back of the sofa, “What did you do today?”


       Xu Ye was always a little nervous when facing him, and said, “I’ve been in the room, um… resting.”


       “I’ve seen your medical report. Although yesterday’s intensity was a little higher, it was not to the extent of keeping you bedridden for a day.” The man swept a slow, oppressive gaze across his face as if he were surveying his territory, “Go ahead, you should have quite a bit ready to say to me, shouldn’t you?”


       He knew exactly what was going to happen today, and he knew Xu Ye’s possible movements like the palm of his hand. This marshmallow never dared to confront him head-on, and could only secretly use those little cleverness to think about how to win back a little autonomy from him. After he returned home and listened to Xiao Xun’s report, that person indeed stayed in his room the whole day. The thought of him hiding in a snail’s shell with a sad face thinking about how to convince himself with a sad face, the man was amused.


       Xu Ye swallowed a mouthful of saliva, and his heart was beating like a drum. He was tens of thousands of times more nervous than sitting at the negotiating table. After a long time, he blushed and said, “The reason why I will be involved in BDSM, is that I once suffered from sexual frigidity. Well… You have given me a lot of happiness, and I am very grateful to you. I recognise you as my master and am willing to exist as your slave for the rest of my life until you propose to terminate this relationship. As you can see, I am not a good enough slave, sometimes I lose my sense of being a slave and cause you trouble and anger. I am willing to accept the punishment and lessons you offer and will endeavour to make myself better.” He pursed his lips and looked at the other person’s face nervously.


       “Continue.” Chu Yu listened while drinking tea, without any emotion on his face.


       Xu Ye bit the bullet and continued, “Today, I have thought a lot about my life and future, about your relationship with me, and your thoughts… It’s been tough for me because I can’t figure out what’s on your mind, I don’t know what you’re planning, why you decided to keep me here for a week, or if you’ll agree to let me leave after that. In fact, I had prepared many arguments to convince you, but…” He lowered his eyelids slightly, with a tragic expression as if he was about to break the boat, “but now I don’t want to make any more detours. You are my master, you control everything about me, I should give you my trust… In any case, I should tell you what I think without reservation, and let you decide.” He raised his face, looked at the man in front of him with black and white eyes, and said very seriously, “Master, can you allow me to go to work?”


       His thin lips curved into a nice-looking arc, and Chu Yu glanced at his nervously curled fingers, his tense body, and his earnest yet uneasy expression, and said with a smile, “What if I disagree?”


       Xu Ye’s eyes trembled, puppy without flesh and bones, and his disappointed expression looked a little pitiful. His head drooped again, bangs covered his eyes in the shadows, and he responded in a low voice, “Everything is up to you.”


       “Take off your clothes.” The man put down the teacup and said, “Come here.”


       Xu Ye forced down the frustration in his heart and obeyed, and obediently stripped himself naked. Chu Yu pulled him into his arms and let him sit on his lap. He took off the protective cover on his chest and then applied some cooling medicine on him. When the cotton swab touched the protrusion, Xu Ye trembled. The man stopped and asked, “Does it hurt?”


       He pursed his lips with a strange expression on his face. In fact, apart from a little pain, the place where the fingers rubbed lightly was numb and itchy. He didn’t know whether it was because of the piercing ring, it seems to have become particularly sensitive. How could he admit it, so he could only answer, “A little…”


       “Did you feel unwell today? Like a fever.” Chu Yu touched his forehead with his hand.




       After carefully applying the ointment, Chu Yu put on a new protective cover for him, which looked smaller than the previous one, with slightly flatter bumps. The man looked at him and said, “You think I’m restricting your freedom, don’t you?”


       Xu Ye was startled but didn’t make a sound.


       “As the master, in addition to making demands on you, I also have responsibilities to you.” Chu Yu put his arms around his waist and said, “Wounds can easily get infected if not treated properly. The reason for restricting your movement area is that I need to keep an eye on your status at all times, including your diet, medication, and mental state. I will evaluate your health after seven days, and if everything is normal, you can go back.”


       Xu Ye’s eyes widened, and he asked in surprise, “Really?”


       Chu Yu smiled, “Otherwise, what do you think I’m going to do to you? Lock you up in this house as a prisoner? Torture you day and night?”


       Xu Ye’s fair face was stained red, and he said uncomfortably, “No…”


       “Xu Ye, I have no interest in keeping you captive. You are not a masochist, likewise, I am not a sadist. As I said, the way masters and slaves get along should be two-way happiness. Although on the surface I give orders to force you to obey, essentially your obedience to me should be voluntary. Do you agree with this statement?”


       Xu Ye nodded, he felt a little guilty now. He misinterpreted the meaning of the other party and had been thinking about how to break free.


       “In fact, today is my test for you.” Chu Yu smiled, “I didn’t untie your collar, but I deliberately left a vague no-going instruction to give you the illusion of being locked up was to see how you would react. Everything was in my expectation, the only surprise was that you didn’t attempt to convince me, but instead made a direct request to me. That’s good.” The man stroked his back, “You finally learned to trust me.”


       “Master…” he called in a low voice.


       “In the future, you can call me by my name when we talk to each other as equals.”


       Xu Ye was stunned for a moment before tentatively opening his mouth, “…Chu Yu.”




       “Chu Yu.” He called again.


       His handsome eyebrows and eyes relaxed as he smiled, “Addicted to it, aren’t you?”


       “Chu Yu, can I…” Before he could finish his request, the blushing Xu Ye moved his mouth directly to meet the man’s lips. The man gladly accepted this enthusiastic but shy kiss. The smell of black tea spread in the mouth and nose. This kiss was soft and sweet, like feathers falling on the water, swirling and stirring gentle waves. It lingered long, making one desire to be immersed in it. It was not until the air in his lungs was almost used up that he reluctantly left.


       “You haven’t learned the rules well, but you’re getting more and more courageous.” Chu Yu patted his bare buttocks, “Go down and kneel.”


       Xu Ye immediately knelt beside his legs.


       “You’re staying here for the week, if you want to go out you must tell Xiao Xun, and he will arrange for someone to take you off. You have a lot to avoid in your diet lately, so I don’t allow you to eat outside. IDuring the day, you are free to do as you please, but you must be back by five o’clock in the afternoon. I ask you to enter the state of slavery after dinner. Is that clear?”


       “Yes, Master.”


       “Very well, let’s get along well in the time to come, my slave.”
