The next day, Yao Jinxi naturally suffered from back pain and his a.s.shole was swollen. The only thing that made him feel at ease was that Wu Yang wore condoms from beginning to end without c.u.mming inside and he also did not make him do any difficult positions. Or else it would have made Yao Jinxi suffer more.
He was unsure if it’s because he’s too tired, he couldn’t sleep soundly. Yao Jinxi woke up several times, tossing and turning as he tried different sleeping positions. Finally, he just lay face down. But it still wasn’t comfortable. Wu Yang originally had one hand resting on his waist, almost embracing him. As Yao Jinxi kept moving, Wu Yang naturally woke up. Looking at the person sleeping next to him, a satisfied smile appeared at the corner of his mouth. He adjusted his sleeping position and softly asked, “What’s wrong?”
Yao Jinxi turned his head sideways to look at Wu Yang and said, “Nothing’s wrong. Did I wake you up?” He held his pillow with both hands. “You go back to sleep. What time is it?”
Wu Yang picked up his phone from the bedside. It wasn’t really early. “It’s almost 7am. Are you not feeling well? Let me give you a ma.s.sage.”
He lifted the blanket and slid it down to Yao Jinxi’s hips. He then straddled Yao Jinxi’s thighs and pressed his hands on the thin waist in a very professional manner. He worked his way up along both sides of the spine. He was using a lot of strength, causing Yao Jinxi to moan.
This moan sounded unbearably sweet. As soon as it came out of his mouth, Yao Jinxi shut his mouth tightly and stopped moving around, “Hmm. Just forget it. It should get better on its own after some time.”
Unexpectedly, Wu Yang said in a serious tone, “No way. If you leave it like this every time, it’s easy to strain your lower back muscles.”
Yao Jinxi: “…”
Just as Yao Jinxi was about to refuse, he found something pressing against his a.s.s. This thing was the cause of his back pain. Due to the position of the two of them, the thing was embedded in between his thighs near his a.s.s. Yao Jinxi lay on the pillow angrily, “…-You really!”
Wu Yang laughed a few times and didn’t seem to feel embarra.s.sed at all, “It’s always like this in the morning.”
As he spoke, he exerted force with his hands again. He ma.s.saged the muscles on Yao Jinxi’s waist and back. Each time it was pressed, Yao Jinxi felt both soreness and numbness. It was painful but also refres.h.i.+ng at the same time. For a moment, he couldn’t tell whether it was comfortable or uncomfortable. Yao Jinxi couldn’t help but make moaning sounds a few more times and ended up having to suffocate himself in the pillow.
But after being ma.s.saged by Wu Yang for a while, the muscle pain was indeed relieved a lot. When it was over, Yao Jinxi couldn’t help but blush a little. He breathed a sigh of relief, “Thank you…-“
Before more words of thanks could be spoken, Yao Jinxi froze because Wu Yang moved to get directly on top of him. The guy even leaned down, with his whole body embedded behind his back. He smiled as he spoke into his ear, “Now it’s your turn to help me.”
The f.u.c.k would I help you?
Yao Jinxi moved, trying to get up. But his hands were immediately pressed down on the side of his neck with interlocking fingers. Wu Yang joked in a suggestive tone, “Don’t provoke me but then deprive me of my needs.”
“Who the h.e.l.l provoked you!” Yao Jinxi turned his head angrily. He then pulled Wu Yang’s hand over and bit it bitterly as if to retaliate, “You’re not allowed to put it in.”
Wu Yang pretended to sigh sadly, “You are really heartless.”
Yao Jinxi continued to grit his teeth.
The prostatic fluid produced by Wu Yang’s d.i.c.k made it slippery and moist. The slight sound of wetness caused by the rubbing in between Yao Jinxi’s thighs was endless, which sounded too ambiguous in a room with only the sound of air conditioning could be heard
d.a.m.n, this person is too much…-
Yao Jinxi didn’t move at all. He was lying flat in embarra.s.sment and letting everything go. After a while, Wu Yang e.j.a.c.u.l.a.t.ed. Bits of white turbidity were sprinkled on Yao Jinxi’s smooth back. Wu Yang looked at his results with a little fascination. If it weren’t for Yao Jinxi’s physical discomfort, he really wanted to f.u.c.k him directly.
“Already done, right?! I’m getting up!” Yao Jinxi instinctively let nature take its course. Thinking that he would be in trouble, he quickly got up on his hands and knees. Wu Yang raised his hands high as he shrugged and stepped aside consciously. He looked down at Yao Jinxi’s lower half with interest, “Can I help you as well?”
It’s definitely not normal for someone to not react when something like this happens. Yao Jinxi glared back at him openly this time, “No need. Thank you.”
Who knows what else might happen with his offer to help? To be on the safe side, Yao Jinxi took care of his erection himself while he was taking a shower. When it was Wu Yang’s turn to shower, Yao Jinxi casually went downstairs to the hotel cafe to have breakfast.
The hotel cafe offered a buffet breakfast, which was complimentary for guests. Yao Jinxi picked up breakfast for two and chose a table by the window. He enjoyed his favourite soy milk and deep-fried dough sticks.
Before long, Wu Yang also came down. He glanced around at the cafe entrance and then walked over, saying, “Let’s have breakfast here so that Auntie won’t have to go out again to buy groceries and cook all morning.”
Yao Jinxi also felt sorry for Yao Hong. She couldn’t even have a proper weekend break because of them coming around. “So, are you suggesting we go out for lunch as well then?”
Wu Yang placed a bowl of lean pork and preserved egg congee in front of Yao Jinxi, which Yao Jinxi didn’t particularly like. “Yes. I asked the front desk attendant earlier,” said Wu Yang. “She mentioned a famous boat restaurant nearby called West Chamber. They serve wild river Jiangtuan. It should be a specialty around here, right?’
Wild river Jiangtuan was indeed a local specialty. But they were quite expensive. Especially at the kind of boat restaurant that specialises in making them. Having grown up in this area, Yao Jinxi knew this well and casually remarked, “Why bother going to West Chamber? I can just buy some fresh wild river Jiangtuan from the market and cook it for you.”
“No need to save money for me,” Wu Yang spoke in a cheesy manner, “I can’t bear to see you work so hard either.”
Raising an eyebrow at him, Yao Jinxi clicked his tongue twice, “I know you have money. Fine then. My mom wakes up early. Let’s just go after breakfast.”
But soon after, Yao Hong was the first to call Yao Jinxi. She didn’t ask about lunch but instead about Yao Jinchen.
“Jinchen didn’t go home last night?” Yao Jinxi repeated what she said with a question. He frowned and looked at Wu Yang. “But he’s not with us.”
Yao Hong’s voice on the phone was rather indifferent. It sounded like it was just a casual inquiry. She seemed satisfied with the answer and didn’t say anything further.
Knowing that Yao Hong was someone with a stubborn personality, she must be extremely worried by now even though she doesn’t show it. After all, Yao Jinxi understood that although Yao Jinchen had a rebellious mouth in front of Yao Hong, he was generally obedient. He had never pulled an all-nighter without informing them of his whereabouts.
Yao Jinxi hung up the phone with a heavy heart and became quiet.
It was Wu Yang who figured out the reason from their conversation and smiled, “Finish your meal and then we will go find your worrisome little brother. Where could he possibly go?”
Where could he possibly go?
Yao Jinxi was also clueless. He could only resort to the most convenient option and directly called him using his phone. But as expected, no one answered. After a moment’s thought, he called Yao Hong to ask for Yao Jinchen’s friends’ phone numbers and dialled each of them one by one.
At this time, none of this group of people were awake. When they were woken up, their tone wasn’t particularly pleasant. They were even more surprised upon hearing Yao Jinxi introduce himself as Yao Jinchen’s brother. Yao Jinxi couldn’t be bothered with such matters and directly inquired about Yao Jinchen’s whereabouts.
Yao Jinchen’s friends were also clueless. However, one high school cla.s.smate remembered, “Last night, Big Brother Ning asked me to go for drinks together. He said Jinchen had come back and we should go celebrate with them. I didn’t go. But maybe Jinchen is at Big Brother Ning’s place?”
Ning Zeming was also their high school cla.s.smate. Yao Jinxi got his number and dialled it, nearly giving up before the person finally answered the call.
The person was clearly still drowsy, speaking incoherently. When asked about Yao Jinchen, Ning Zeming was surprised, “He didn’t go home? We separated at the bar entrance yesterday. And then? Then… we all went our separate ways home.”
Yao Jinxi got the name and address of the bar clarified, feeling utterly perplexed.
“Don’t be so worried. After all, he’s an adult. He doesn’t look particularly wealthy. So no one would want to kidnap him.” Wu Yang half-joked and half-comforted him, “Let’s go to the bar and have a look.”
That seemed to be the only option now. Yao Jinxi continuously called Yao Jinchen while rus.h.i.+ng to the bar with Wu Yang. Before arriving, from a distance, they noticed a figure lying next to a utility pole. No matter how they looked at it, the guy seemed to be Yao Jinchen.
Just as Wu Yang parked the car, Yao Jinxi, with an unfriendly expression, jumped out and approached the person. He realised that it wasn’t Yao Jinchen. Beside the person was a pool of vomit. And a few feet away from these things, someone else was sitting fast asleep.
“Hey! Wake up!” Yao Jinxi flipped the person over by the shoulder, only to be hit by a strong alcoholic breath. This jerk was drooling in his sleep. Yao Jinxi wanted nothing more than to give him a beating right there and then. He thought about it and indeed did as he wanted. Smack, smack! Smack left and smack right! Yao Jinxi landed a couple of slaps on Yao Jinchen, “Wake up!”
The force of those two slaps was quite intense. Yao Jinchen’s face immediately reddened and swollen. He groggily opened his eyes, muttering a few words but clearly didn’t regain consciousness before dozing off again.
“You can call Auntie to let her know we found him,” Wu Yang said, getting out of the car to help Yao Jinchen into the vehicle. “Seeing him like this, it’s better not go home for now. Let’s take him to the hotel first to rest.”
Yao Jinxi gave a frustrated glare at the slumbering Yao Jinchen in the back seat. “Just drop him at the hotel. We’re going to eat.”
“You won’t be constantly worried while eating?” Wu Yang chuckled. “Don’t force yourself for me. You can do whatever you want. If it can’t be solved, I’m still here to help.”
Encountering such a situation ruined their mood for going out to eat. They first took Yao Jinchen back to the hotel. Seeing how uncomfortable he looked, seemingly on the verge of vomiting, Yao Jinxi’s heart softened. “You should go to my place first. I’ll stay here and watch over him. I should wait for him to wake up so that he won’t cause any trouble.”
Wu Yang’s face held a mixed expression as he glanced at the bed where Yao Jinchen lay. “The miserable-looking child will always be more pampered.”
“What are you talking about? How is that similar to this situation?” Yao Jinxi was both amused and exasperated. Despite this, he understood Wu Yang’s displeasure towards Yao Jinchen. Taking hold of Wu Yang’s shoulder, he kissed him on the cheek. “I’m counting on you to deal with my mom.”
Wu Yang chuckled and then slightly leaned in, “How about you give me another kiss?”
When Yao Jinchen finally woke up, it was already in the afternoon. Yao Jinxi sat on the side, exchanging text messages with Wu Yang about the lunch he had at the hotel. His story was quite similar to what Yao Jinxi had imagined, a version close to the one concocted with Yao Hong. It appeared that Yao Jinchen indeed felt a bit unwell inside and went wild at a cla.s.smate’s place without informing the family. After Yao Jinxi went to check on him today, he simply joined his other friends in City L for a gathering. Understanding that Wu Yang’s presence might not be suitable, he sensibly chose not to go and instead returned to accompany Yao Hong.
This narrative naturally earned favour from Yao Hong, appreciating his maturity.
Yao Jinxi was speechless. He touched his lips which were previously reddened by the unexpected kiss as he thought; This person really knew how to seize every opportunity.
Hearing Yao Jinchen’s voice, Yao Jinxi put down the phone and looked over, “You’re awake? You see that gla.s.s of water by your side? Have a sip.”
Yao Jinchen furrowed his eyebrows and ma.s.saged his temples for quite a while. His headache alleviated slightly. He grabbed a gla.s.s and gulped down the water directly, feeling extremely thirsty after the hangover.
In the room, the only sound was the gurgling as he drank water. The two brothers didn’t know what to say to each other. It seemed like everything that needed to be said had already been said.
Yao Jinchen held the empty gla.s.s. His gaze was somewhat unfocused. His eyes fell upon the exaggerated hickey mark on Yao Jinxi’s neck, causing a sudden pain in his heart and refusing to look further with his eyes.
He hesitated for a long time before speaking, “Brother, there’s something I’d like to discuss with you first.”
“Go on.” Although he used the term ‘discuss’, Yao Jinxi sensed that Yao Jinchen had already made up his mind. He asked calmly, “What’s the matter?”
Not looking at him, Yao Jinchen observed the gla.s.s in his hand and slowly spoke, “There’s a project at the company aiming to train some potential new talents. Those in our batch can compete for the spots. The selected individuals will be transferred to the headquarters as part of the executive reserve.”
Yao Jinxi’s pupils were slightly contracted, “The headquarters of your company is not in China, right.”
At this moment, Yao Jinchen found some amus.e.m.e.nt in the situation and chuckled self-deprecatingly, “Brother, are you kidding me? How could you forget? We’re a Sino-foreign joint venture. The headquarters is in the United States.”

“Don’t provoke me but deprive me of my needs.” = The original phrase used by YJX is “什么过河拆桥” translates to “What a bridge-burning att.i.tude,” or more literally referred to the phrase, “crossing the river and then destroying the bridge.” This expression conveys the idea of taking advantage of a situation and then sabotaging the means or connections that allowed for that advantage. It’s a metaphorical way of saying someone is being opportunistic and then cutting off the means that led to that opportunity. So I changed it to the phrase above instead of using the actual phrase lol.
☝? Wild river Jiangtuan. The dish and the fish…
