Forcing you to Surrender One Step at A Time!
◙ ◙ ◙ ◙ ◙
Gu Hai charged out of the elevator cloaked with an air of exasperation while each heavy step resonated toward Bai Luo Yin.
Suddenly, the bustling entrance way that was crowded with people coming and going became calm and peaceful. And, in just the blink of an eye, all the female staff lingering in the lounge finally found their paths home as they scattered in all directions.
Bai Luo Yin was still leaning against the front of the car while his handsome, elegant and confident figure made it impossible for passersby to not give him a side glance.
Once Gu Hai stopped directly in front of Bai Luo Yin, their faces were nearly plastered together.
“What are you doing?” Gu Hai asked.
As if second nature, Bai Luo Yin’s hand automatically rested on Gu Hai’s shoulder, “I’m not doing anything, just looking for a place to rest and have a cigarette, that’s all.”
“What a coincidence,” said Gu Hai, feigning a smile as he raised his brow and knowingly scrutinized Bai Luo Yin, “I see, you just happen to pick this place for a rest every-single-day.”
“There are a lot of girls here,” retorted Bai Luo Yin with an arrogant smirk tugging at the corner of his lips as he lit a cigarette.
Looking at him, Gu Hai immediately snatched the cigarette from Bai Luo Yin’s mouth and placed it in his own mouth instead before moving to the side to lean against the car beside Bai Luo Yin. All the while, his gloomy eyes stared annoyingly at the front of his office building.
“Don’t come here anymore.” Gu Hai warned him, his voice was stern and demanding.
Bai Luo Yin listened on with contempt, “This is a public place, why can’t I come here? Besides, it’s not like I’m here to look for you. I am single right now, so I want to borrow the good energy from your precious company to find my fated other half.”
Keeping quiet for a second, there was only the sound of cars and footsteps passing by as the smoke that blew out of Gu Hai’s mouth carried a gust of chilly air.
Looking for your fated other half? I’m right beside you and you dare to still fucking look?
“There’s no need to look. None of the women in my company are suitable for you, not to mention, every single one of them are proud and arrogant. Who would fall for such a calamity like you, always parading ostentatiously around town……”
In the end, after being in his own world and having spoken for nearly half a day, Gu Hai noticed that Bai Luo Yin did not react to any of his words. He turned his head for a look, only to see this bastard had pulled out a stack of business cards out of nowhere, and worst, there were about 50 cards with just one glance. He even flipped the card over one by one to look over the information as if he was selecting a fair maiden among all the beauties laid out for him. And, let’s not mention the look of satisfaction smugly riding his face.
Unable to look on, Gu Hai snatched those business cards over and shoved them all into his pocket without saying anything further.
Meanwhile, Bai Luo Yin tried with difficulty to not reveal his smile as he stared at Gu Hai, “Gu Zong, you’re being stingy. Look, you already have all these cards in your office, why did you have to snatch mine away like that, huh?”
“I’m just borrowing them for a look to see how many of our company employees have such poor tastes.”
Bai Luo Yin did not get angry or caused a scene, he simply pulled out the cigarette from Gu Hai’s mouth while wearing a bewildered expression.
“Hey, tell me, why is there a hint of sourness in the cigarette today, huh?”
A battalion of darkness rushed into Gu Hai’s eyes and swept toward Bai Luo Yin for a glance only to see that the expression on his face was bursting with even more brilliance with every passing minute.
After a moment of silence, a faint laugh escaped Bai Luo Yin’s lips before he struck the car door, “Alright! Gu Zong, it’s late already, it’s time for me to eat.”
Gu Hai silently colluded to himself. If you have the balls to come to my house today and I let you leave, then I will relinquish myself as a Gu!
In the end, Bai Luo Yin unexpectedly did not get back in the car, but instead, he turned the other way and started to walk toward the Cha Canting on the other side of the street.
Feeling somewhat puzzled, Gu Hai asked from behind, “Where are you going?”
“Let’s just eat there together!” Bai Luo Yin’s words and footsteps stopped at the front of the door to the Cha Canting.
Gu Hai calmly reminded him, “There’s nothing in there that you’ll like to eat.”
With a hidden smile jerking the corners of his lips, Bai Luo Yin twisted his head around, “Even though your place has a lot of the food I like, I can’t always go there. As you can see, I only ate there for a few days and now I have to look at your mood just to park in front of your company. This is all because I ate your food.”
Once those words came to an end, he turned back around and walked in.
As he watched the door shut, Gu Hai gritted his teeth in anger.
Bai Luo Yin, you’re really fucking good at pissing me off!!
But even with that thought, he still followed in.
As Bai Luo Yin was ordering food, he could not help but to say something when he saw Gu Hai walked in, “Gu Zong, why are you in here when your cooking skill is already great, huh?”
Without looking at him, Gu Hai only replied with two words, “I’m lazy!”
Bai Luo Yin shouted loudly, “Waiter, add a pair of chopsticks.”
While those words filtered the air between them, Gu Hai unexpectedly did not share a table with Bai Luo Yin. He purposely found a seat at the table next to him instead.
Controlling his expression, Bai Luo Yin mentally cursed him.
Gu Hai, you’re good! You can keep on being fucking stubborn with me!! Just you wait, I’ll be going back to the base in a few days anyways. By then, you won’t be able to find anyone to shit on even if you want to.
The waiter walked toward Bai Luo Yin and gave him a glance before giving Gu Hai a glance and then asked in a small hesitating tone, “Do you still need another pair of chopsticks?”
With a cold and stern face, Bai Luo Yin simply threw out a few words, “Yes, just put it across from me.”
As a result, the extra pair of utensil sat silently on the other side, creating a false appearance of someone sitting there.
In the end, the scene was of two people sitting at two separate tables while disregarding the other person as they ate quietly to themselves with neither speaking a single word to each other. After just a few bites, Gu Hai could no longer stomach the food here, but since he was here already, he must continue this game until the end. Otherwise, it would seem like he had followed someone in there.
“Eat it. This dish is pretty good.”
Suddenly, Bai Luo Yin’s voice floated from the other side, causing the chopsticks in Gu Hai’s hand to tremble just the slightest before his eyes made a beeline to the source of the sound.
With just the first glance, Gu Hai witnessed a scene that incited his blood vessels to burst.
Bai Luo Yin was eating alone and although there was absolutely no one sitting across from him, he kept on putting food in the bowl. While he picked the food, he even conversed with the empty bowl and dishes, looking as though he was a mentally challenged person.
“I’ve already removed all the fish bones from this piece. Didn’t you always do this for me in the past? Let me do it for you today. Isn’t it delicious?… It really is delicious? Look how messy you are, there’s food on your chin. Let’s quickly wipe it off……”
A couple seconds later, a burst of cold air rushed into the surrounding area when two customers walked out while the remaining people’s gazes all darted over to Bai Luo Yin with sympathy.
“Ahh, what a pity, how can such a fine and good-looking young man have this kind of illness?”
“That’s right…he must have suffered something really traumatic.”
“If you ask me, it’s most likely because the other person died.”
Hearing those words, all the food in Gu Hai’s mouth were completely jammed in his throat while an overwhelming sensation took control of his heart, tearing away his appetite. However, all types of feelings emerged within his heart.
Suddenly, Bai Luo Yin let loose a few more unbelievable words, “Gu Hai, are the food I picked for you delicious, hmmm?”
Gu Hai’s darkened face was about to burst any time now.
Bai Luo Yin, fuck you! Bastard!! I’m not dead yet!!
Even after Gu Hai dragged him out toward the car, Bai Luo Yin still played on to his heart’s content.
Grabbing him firmly, Gu Hai pushed Bai Luo Yin roughly into the back seat of the car and began to work his magical hands on him as he incessantly tickled his waist without even a hint of relenting.
Bai Luo Yin twisted side to side while begging for forgiveness, “Stop it, stop it…if you don’t, I’m going to throw up any second now.”
When Gu Hai finally let Bai Luo Yin go, he slowly sat up, and after he was able to catch his breath, he turned to look at Gu Hai only to see him staring at him with a pair of watchful and forbidding eyes.
In just seconds, Bai Luo Yin could not hold it in any longer and burst into laughter again.
One of Gu Hai’s big hand darted out and ruthlessly gripped both of Bai Luo Yin’s cheeks, squeezing it until his mouth was the same shape as a duck’s beak. Yet, even then, Bai Luo Yin continued to laugh with his lips pouted and cheeks squeezed to the point that a couple of lines appeared, making it seem especially amusing.
The anger Gu Hai felt turned into happiness, from there, his claw like hands raced toward Bai Luo Yin’s cock, but Bai Luo Yin was quick to defend himself and firmly clamped his legs.
Sensing Gu Hai’s lips closing in on him, Bai Luo Yin swing his head away first causing the sneaky kiss to land on his ear. Bai Luo Yin’s body trembled for a moment from the gentle sensation on his skin before he started to struggle again. In seconds, one of Gu Hai’s legs pressed firmly on his legs, rendering him completely immobile.
Then, after a seemingly endless silence, their lips mutually pulled into each other, allowing the kiss that has been lying restlessly in their heart to speak in a soft, comforting way that words can never be.
Their lips mesh against each other, and for the first time since forever their minds were locked in the present. The worries that lingered evaporated like the snow upon the coming of summer as an immense wave engulfed every inch of their bodies, melting them into one.
The headlights from the passing cars flickered on and off against the darkness, illuminating their faces as both their longingly eyes slightly parted to take in each other’s forms. Warmth radiated as their soft tongues traveled willfully along the lines of the others’ lips. And in that silence, all of their needs were laid bare, all of their passions and the sparks that sprout from unspoken words existed only between them.
In that moment, the feelings they held was strong, unyielding, and inseparable. It was to the point that even after some time had passed, the passion and desires that intoxicated their hearts still coursed throughout their bodies, containing them, leaving them actively addicted to each other for a very long time, unwilling to scatter.
Bai Luo Yin’s brows slightly locked, “It taste like sesame paste.”
The tip of Gu Hai’s tongue mischievously traced circles along Bai Luo Yin’s lips again, before he follow suit with, “It taste like dried shrimps.”
Without taking their eyes off each other, the two flavors on their lips mixed again. The soft and gentleness that suffused a moment ago was merely a warm-up. Gu Hai’s feelings quickly rose to its limit and exploded as his tongue boldly charged in with need, pressing into Bai Luo Yin’s throat. Unwillingly to be overtaken, Bai Luo Yin’s tongue retaliated and stubbornly pushed Gu Hai’s tongue back before he started to wreak havoc in his mouth. While their breaths were ravaged with more and more urgency, hinting at the desire that brazenly burn, Gu Hai’s hands started to wander sensually along Bai Luo Yin’s body. Just as Bai Luo Yin felt a gust of cool air unfurled beneath his shirt, a warm yet defiant hand suddenly tread in.
With great speed, Bai Luo Yin firmly held onto the hand while his eyes exposed a hint of ridicule.
“Gu Zong, you can’t reveal your gangster identity right in front of the company.”
Gu Hai gritted his teeth, “Gu Zong? I dare you to say Gu Zong again!! I’ll bite your tongue off!”
“Where did this gangster come from?” asked Bai Luo Yin, borrowing Gu Hai’s expression as he berated him.
Slightly pouting, Gu Hai mercilessly pinched the smalls of Bai Luo Yin’s waist, “You’re so fucking bad!”
The two tussled for a while but thinking that there was inadequate space to move around, Gu Hai stopped and rested his chin on Bai Luo Yin’s shoulder. He turned his head slightly to the side and let all his hot breath fan Bai Luo Yin’s burning ear.
“Come home with me.” Gu Hai softly implored while his lips brushed his skin.
Hearing those words, Bai Luo Yin toughed his face and held back his tongue a bit before he replied with an unyielding manner that does not destroy his integrity, “I’m not going!”
Gu Hai snuggled close to Bai Luo Yin’s ear and softly asked, “Why not? Weren’t you always running after my ass just two days ago? Now that I took the initiative to ask you today, you won’t give me the honor?”
Bai Luo Yin firmly stood his ground, “A military officer must maintain his upright nature at all times.”
“Then, if I willingly throw myself at you, will you go or not?” Gu Hai continued to poison the other’s mind with his irresistible voice.
Giving him a quick glance, Bai Luo Yin went silent for a long while but even then he still replied with the same three words, “I’m not going!”
A twinge of pain shot into Gu Hai’s chest as he mentally clenched his teeth and stomp his foot, then he finally let those disadvantaged words he had kept locked burst free.
“I like you.”
Holding onto his serious appearance, Bai Shouzhang simply cleared his throat, “Then, let’s go to your place and have some water!”
Gu Hai snickered to himself.
It doesn’t matter if I suffer some emotional losses, I will get it all back in bed!

 吃人家嘴短 Lit: Eat other’s mouth short. It means, if you keep eating other people’s food, in future, you would feel embarrassed if you wanted to criticize them when the time comes. BLY is saying, he can’t always go leech food of GH, if he did how can he criticize or scold him if he wanted to later on?
 Disadvantage words – from previous chapter, Gu Hai said he didn’t want to be in a lower status by admitting how he feels for BLY. Since BLY is so good with arousing GH, GH had no choice but to admit, even if it means he had to lower his status again. lol
