Arriving at the corner that they had agreed to meet, Qi Xiu Yuan immediately ran over to where Xiao Li’s car was parked.
He knocked on the window for a moment. Not waiting for a reply, he pulled the car door open. Just that first glance at the sight in front of him, he suddenly felt his chest tightened.
“Didn’t I tell you that you can’t drink for at least two months?” The tone of his voice was riddled with anxiety and anger as they left his lips, “Such a strong scent, how much did you drink?”
Xiao Li was leaning back against the driver’s seat with a deathly pallor painted across his face. It was as if he was not only afraid of the light but also afraid of the noises surrounding him. With eyes closed, he shifted just slightly from his position.
Qi Xiu Yuan sighed. Then, he slowed down his speaking manner, lowered his voice and asked, “Where do you feel uncomfortable? Do you want to go to the hospital?”
Xiao Li’s brows knitted together into a frown. It looked as though he was trying really hard to keep awake. It was only a moment later did he open his eyes.
“Can you drive?”
Upon hearing that his voice was still steady, Qi Xiu Yuan became slightly relieved.
“Go to your place.”
Having said that, Xiao Li leaned to the side and tried to shift his body toward the front passenger seat. As he watched Xiao Li strenuously moved toward the seat, Qi Xiu Yuan leaned half his body into the car and reached over to help him. But, not watching his footing, Qi Xiu Yuan tripped and both of his hands grabbed hold of Xiao Li’s waist; within a split second, his entire weight pressed down on Xiao Li’s body.
“Xiao Li……” Just as he was about to ask Xiao Li if he was ‘okay’, he saw that Xiao Li’s eyes were half open. Because he wasn’t feeling well, his breath was hot as it escaped his slightly parted lips. Seconds later, he looked as if he was in a lost in a trance.
Xiao Li’s entire body stiffened. In front of his eyes were the vague, indistinct figure of Li Shi Qing moving in close to his face to him. In that fleeting moment, his stomach twisted in pain again. He let out a few dry coughs before disgustingly cursing out. “Fuck off!”
Having a guilty conscience, Qi Xiu Yuan pulled his own limbs up and helped Xiao Li sit properly before fastening the seatbelt for him. During the entire ordeal he did not dare to give Xiao Li another glance.
Through the entire ride, his heartbeats were like thunderbolts perpetually striking his chest as if it was attempting to escape. It was an overwhelming mixture of excitement then disappointment that took turns to toy with him. Only when he lowered the car window and let the cool breeze caress him wholly for the ride back did his thoughts calmed down.
Once they arrive at his house, he helped Xiao Li out of the car.
While he carried him on his back toward the entrance, he laughed and said, “This is the second time I’ve carried you on my back.”
Xiao Li became a bit clear-headed by the sudden shift. Hearing Qi Xiu Yuan say those words, he merely hummed out a low ‘yeah’ under his breath.
It was approaching midnight.
Qi Xiu Yuan reckoned that his sister had already gone to sleep, so he fished out his key and lightly opened the door as not to make much noise. Entering, he felt around in the dark before he quietly and slowly, he carried Xiao Li toward his own room before; only then did he dared to switch the lights on.
Once he placed Xiao Li on the bed, he first helped him take off his shoes and socks, before stretching his hands out to unbutton his shirt. Just as he undoes one button, he thought about it for a second and walked out toward the kitchen.
Susu’s fruit yogurt was already gone, so Qi Xiu Yuan grabbed a glass of water and add some honey to it, then returned to his room again.
“Xiao Li, drink something.” He helped Xiao Li sit up then place the glass of water at his lip.
Xiao Li’s brows twisted together and refused to open his eyes.
“You can’t sleep on an empty stomach.” Qi Xiu Yuan coaxed him in a low tone. After a while, he couldn’t bear it any longer, so he lowered his voice even more and said, “Behave.”
Sadly, Xiao Li did not hear what he said at all, however he did felt thirsty since the inside of his mouth was dry and uncomfortable.
Qi Xiu Yuan’s eyes slightly widened as he stared attentively at Xiao Li. Looking at Xiao Li’s lips part with a rather slow rhythm; and how that glimmer of light reflect on his lips from the thin layer of water that linger there, Qi Xiu Yuan couldn’t help but swallow his saliva.
While his heart galloped frantically like a wild horses racing around the luscious grassland, the glass in his head became unsteady.
Xiao Li suddenly choked and coughed rather violently.
Once Qi Xiu Yuan recovered from his momentary daze, he immediately placed the glass down and gently caress Xiao Li’s stomach as to ease his pain.
By the time Xiao Li fell asleep, Qi Xiu Yuan undoes his button, picked him up by the waist and slowly took his shirt off. Then he loosened his leather belt and pulled his pant down, removing them slowing as not to disrupt him.
Xiao Li’s body was slender yet sturdy. The outline of his muscles were no exaggeration. It was the embodiment of great health, with a unique beauty and strength to it. Even the long scar that ran along the side of his waist strangely illustrated a kind of sensuality to it.
And this mature man’s body was lying there exposed in front of him in this manner.
Qi Xiu Yuan was unable to shift his gaze away.
He sat at the bedside and stretch his hand out to gently caress Xiao Li’s chest. The smoothness that touched the palm of his hand urged him to continue. An indescribable spell conjured by a poisonous potion weaved into the rhythm of his breaths and bewitched him……
Then he felt the air around become slightly chilled as Xiao Li lightly moved.
Qi Xiu Yuan looked as though he suffered a horrifying fright as he promptly stood up.
He quickly pulled the thin blanket up and covered Xiao Li. Then in a panic, he switched the light off, closed the door and escaped.
He ran toward the bathroom and shut the door.
Pressing his head against the door, he pulled out the thing that had long ago become swollen with vitality. He thought about Xiao Li’s alluring body from just a moment ago while jerking himself off.
In the end, just after he released, he became hard again. Without a better option, he turned on the cold water and rushed underneath. He stayed there for a while until the raging heat in his entire body emitted cold air. It was only then does he felt relieved.
Then he stared at himself through the bathroom mirror and heaved a long sigh, cursing: “You beast!” 
 beast – Qi Xiu Yuan is using the characters ‘禽兽’ [qínshòu] from when Han Jia called him ‘Qin the beast’. So he’s saying he same of himself, a beast. -.-
