When Zhou Yun Sheng arrived, Cao Mo Kun was sitting on the sofa drinking red wine. The room was only lit by a dim lamp, the light and shade made his handsome face deeper and more profound.
“Come and have a drink.” He waved the youth over, his voice low.
Burgundy Wine, 1997, Zhou Yun Sheng’s nose twitched as he walked over and poured a glass. He had a very elegant drinking posture, like a real aristocrat, surprising Cao Mo Kun.
“As long as you stay with me for three months, you can name any price.” He gave a satirical smile as he drained the remaining wine. There was nothing in this world money couldn’t buy, just like wine, any beauty was purchasable.
Zhou Yun Sheng wanted to pour out the wine on his head, but he held back. He looked down for a moment, pretended to think, then whispered, “I want three hundred thousand.”
“You sure?” Cao Mo Kun couldn’t help but ask. He had prepared himself to hear an astronomical price, only to hear the boy ask for a mere three hundred thousand. That couldn’t even buy a decent watch.
“No less, I have to get three hundred thousand.” Zhou Yun Sheng misunderstood his question and once again stressed.
Cao Mo Kun looked at him deeply, then he leaned his forehead on his hand and laughed, “Well, three hundred thousand it is, but I first have to inspect.”
Zhou Yun Sheng was still ignorant, then he found himself being carried on top the man’s shoulder and thrown onto a big bed in the next room. He dizzily fell, then his body was covered with by a strong body, and his lips were occupied by another’s. A familiar vertigo instantly made him lose his mind.
After a few minutes, the man finally opened the distance between them, but not by much, he licked the young man’s red and wet lips as he lightly laughed, “Baby, you’re much sweeter than I imagined.”
“Are you finished?” Zhou Yun Sheng panted as he asked.
“How’s that possible? It’s an inspection, of course I have to test inside and out thoroughly.” The man’s big hands suggestively kneaded the young man’s hip.
“Wait, looked at my eyes first.” Zhou Yun Sheng quickly held his cheeks, forcing him to look into his bottomless pupils. His voice lowered, his tone was particularly soothing, “Tell me, what do you see?”
Cao Mo Kun immediately stared at his pupils, his expression slackened in a trance.
“Tell me, what do you see?” Zhou Yun Sheng waited for him to speak for a long time, then asked again.
“I see a star ocean.” Even Cao Mo Kun’s voice sounded barely conscious.
“Very good. Now strip, and masturbate.” Zhou Yun Sheng said with a satisfied smile, like a queen, he pushed aside the taller and stronger man. This was a skill he learned through his many reincarnations – hypnosis. He was a psychological expert, he relied on this god-like hypnosis skill for some of the worse tasks, such as luring the heroine to be ‘ravaged’ until she was miserable, or being killed by the hero ten thousand times. In other words, this skill was a cheat skill he used to avoid being thrown into a fire pit, he’d relied on it to complete a lot of impossible tasks.
But Cao Mo Kun’s trance only lasted a small moment, when the young man broke out of his arms and was about to get out of bed, he sobered, then gave a cold smile, “Baby, what did you just say? Say it again…”
Zhou Yun Sheng, who was fitting back his sweater, froze, completely ignorant of what just happened, after a while, he finally reacted with a tentative voice, “You, I… I said to masturbate. Masturbating is enough, you’d certainly be happier than being with me. I’m sure of it.”
Cao Mo Kun smiled, he pulled the young man back to the bed, pulled off his sweater and pants. When he finally entered him, he couldn’t restrain a hum in pleasure. This feeling was too wonderful, unspeakably wonderful, not only their bodies, even their souls were singing and trembling in harmony.
Zhou Yun Sheng was dazzled by the familiar dizzy feeling, and he matched the man’s rhythm.
An hour later, the two were finally satiated, one was wrapped in a quilt, quietly panting, the other was sitting by the bedside, smoking.
Zhou Yun Sheng stared at the man, the failed hypnotism was still on his heart. The prerequisite to escape another’s hypnosis was a spiritual strength of equal or higher amount. Zhou Yun Sheng was the only person who’d completed thousands of tasks for the Lord God. His soul power had not yet reached an upper limit, his potential spiritual power was unimaginable.
And this world was only an E-class world, there was no power, cultivation, magic and other fantasy elements. In this world, a person equal to or higher in spiritual power than Zhou Yun Sheng should not exist, yet here was Cao Mo Kun. What made him this way? Was the missing energy from the Xinghai space, more than half in fact, related to him?
Zhou Yun Sheng frowned, then picked up a pillow to cover his head, blocking an unstoppable giggle. He thought that he’d found out the reason. Similarities between people were inevitable, but he was finally willing to admit that it wasn’t a coincidence. His body had long ago recognized the other man, but because of fear of disappointment, he’d refused to think too deeply about it. At first, he had feelings for this man only because of loneliness, but after being followed through 3 generations, he naturally had a higher expectation for this situation.
Restraining his joy, he slightly shifted the pillow to look at the man through the gap.
Cao Mo Kun was actually paying attention to his every move. Seeing him cover his face with a pillow, he’d thought that the smoke was bothering him and quickly extinguished it. Then he saw him secretly observing himself and couldn’t help but smile a sweet smile, but he immediately put on a cold face when he caught himself.
He suddenly thought about it, the young man was only a plaything he bought for three hundred thousand, a plaything that could readily betray for money, not a long-term plaything, why should he care about his feelings? He scolded himself, but he couldn’t help but be deeply attracted to the boy, his emotions were fluctuating.
In order to get control over his unruly heart, he pretended to be indifferent as he opened, “Your performance in bed was good, I’m very satisfied. Now that the deal has sealed, we need to establish a few rules.”
Zhou Yun Sheng’s joyful mood was rained on by his words, throwing open the pillow, he disbelievingly asked “You want to give ME rules?”
“The people who deal with me have to observe the rules.” Cao Mo Kun’s tone was severe, but his heart was trembling. He was quickly feeling guilty about what he was doing.
“And you’ve had quite a few people deal with you, haven’t you?” Zhou Yun Sheng questioned.
Cao Mo Kun felt even guiltier at the question, he retorted, “Why do you care about that? What’s your relationship with me?”
I’m your lover! This sentence was almost blurted out, but Zhou Yun Sheng held back. He knew that Cao Mo Kun’s situation was completely different from his own, every time he reincarnated, his data was formatted, he didn’t have any previous memories, yet… he still followed him from world to world.
Thinking of this, Zhou Yun Sheng’s anger dissipated, he faintly acquiesced, “Fine, let’s talk about your rules.”
Cao Mo Kun caressed the red marks on the man’s neck, finally he said, “The first rule: within three months you can’t let Han Yu touch you; the second rule: come when I call, you can’t avoid me without a reason.”
Zhou Yun Sheng obediently listened, after not hearing him speak for a long time he asked “That’s it?’
“Did you think I’d burden you in weird rules?” Cao Mo Kun laughed.
Zhou Yun Sheng nodded, picked up his underwear at the foot of the bed, and looked around for his shirt.
Cao Mo Kun frowned and asked, “What are you doing?”
“I have to go home, if I don’t, Han Yu will be worried. I also have a rule, I hope you can comply, you can’t let Han Yu know the transaction between us.” When he bent over to pull up his pants, Zhou Yun Sheng’s eyes flashed with a sneer. Just because you forgot your memories, you thought I wouldn’t fight back? I’ll make you eat your own words!
Cao Mo Kun really couldn’t accept his departure, he wanted to drag him back and mercilessly pin him down. But he held back, he irritably combed his hand through his hair as he ridiculed, “Why are you so ‘loyal’? Since his family is bankrupt, why don’t you simply break up with him? What are you sticking to him for?”
“I’m ‘sticking’ to him because I love him, I’ll never break up with him.” Zhou Yun Sheng said while picking up his jacket.
“Do you love him? You love him, so you climbed into my bed?” Cao Mo Kun’s eyes were bloodshot, his voice was clearly irritated.
“Yes, because I love him, I’ll sleep with you.” Zhou Yun Sheng wore his shoes and walked out the door, then, as if he remembered something, he turned back and asked, “Do you remember Zhou Yun Sheng?”
Cao Mo Kun was still angry at his inexplicable answer, but when he heard the name he felt stunned, after thinking for a moment, he shook his head.
“How about Wei Xiyan?”
“Shen Yi Bin?”
“Du Xu Lang?”
“Ning Si Nian?”
After asking several questions in a row, Cao Mo Kun’s reaction was to just shake his head, baffled. Zhou Yun Sheng pressed down his disappointment and hurriedly left.
After he left, Cao Mo Kun still couldn’t forget the name ‘Zhou Yun Sheng’. His expression suddenly turned startled, then he felt a huge headache. He lit a cigarette and fiercely sucked down a mouthful.
From that day on, Cao Mo Kun picked up the young man every week and brought him to his club. The feeling of being with the man was too addicting, there were many times when he was even reluctant to withdraw from his body, he just wanted to tear him apart and devour him. Gradually, a week was too long to wait to meet with him, it changed to three days, then again to two days, and finally once a day, until he really just wanted to tie the boy to his side.
Today, he was calling the boy out for dinner, but even after a dozen calls they all failed to connect. He sat anxiously, waiting for half an hour, when he was ready to send his assistant to locate him, the young man took the initiative to call him back.
“What are you doing? Why didn’t you answer the phone for so long?” Cao Mo Kun asked angrily.
“The holiday is almost here, we have finals. We just finished the exam, my phone was on silent.”
The boy’s clear voice instantly quenched Cao Mo Kun’s anxiousness and anger. He pulled at his tie, and calmly asked “How was the test?”
“It was good.” Zhou Yun Sheng casually packed up his backpack, his exquisite face reflected in the warm sun, making him look slightly unreal.
Not to mention Ji Han Yu, even Ji Han Yu’s buddy, Wang Jie, was also attracted to him. Looking at him made his heart itch.
On the other end, Cao Mo Kun said, “I’m adding a new rule, your phone has to be turned on at any time, if there’s a special circumstance that causes you to silence it, you must call me first to tell me why.”
“Why don’t you just save yourself the trouble and put a tracker on me.” Zhou Yun Sheng said mockingly. How did he still maintain his obsessive, possessive, personality after all these resets? There was also smoking, and watching him on video for long hours- unable to help himself from acting on his nature, like a drug addict. Were these inherent traits locked into his database, even after formatting, they couldn’t be deleted?
Thinking of this, he gently laughed.
Cao Mo Kun heard his laughter and his heart almost melted into a puddle of water, he softly said, “That’s a good idea, I’ll buy you a tracking watch tomorrow, so I can’t lose you. I’ll take you out for the holiday, where do you want to go?”
“Wait until the results come out and ask me again.” Zhou Yun Sheng picked up his bag, Ji Han Yu waved his hand as he walked out of the classroom first.
“OK, I’ll pick you up today, let’s have dinner.” Cao Mo Kun immediately picked up his car keys and ran to the elevator.
Zhou Yun Sheng promised and hung up the phone, then he sent Ji Han Yu ahead of him. Ji Han Yu’s buddy, Wang Jie, frequently looked back at the young man, who was standing under the sunset, he teased, “Ah Yu, aren’t you together with his best friend? Why not lend him to us?”
“If you want to play go ahead, as long as you have enough money, he’d let you do anything.” Ji Han Yu smiled scornfully.
“He hasn’t been very playful lately, can’t you help us get him out?”
“I can, if he takes the bait, don’t forget to leave some evidence. Otherwise, if I dumped him suddenly, Fang would think I’m merciless and start avoiding me. He’s been feeling very guilty recently and has trouble sleeping. My heart hurts seeing the circles under his eyes. In short, the one in the wrong is not me, or Fan Youran, it’s Lin Chengze’s fault, you understand?”
“Understood, you really are a bad kid!” Wang Jie hastily nodded.
Zhu Zhao(Prince) – Apparently Gu Si Nian was just the Prince’s self-appointed nickname. Since the author specified that this name is the prince’s name here, it was never told to us in the last story.
