At 2 am, Ji Ran wore a mask.
His expression couldn’t be any darker.

He strongly believed that something must have possessed him to engage in such nonsensical acts instead of sleeping.

Qin Man’s luggage was still in the rental room.
He said that the debtors had staked out his house during the day and only left at 2 in the morning, so they could only come back at this time to grab his stuff.

Sitting in the car, he stared at the neighbourhood apartment building.
“Qin Man, do you think I’m stupid? How can these apartments only cost 1000 yuan1 a month?”

“It’s 800.” Qin Man said, “My friend kindly rented it to me because he’s the landlord, I also don’t feel it’s right to stay here.”

Ji Ran replied, “… So you also know how to feel shame.”

Qin Man laughed without any hint of anger.
“You can park the car in the district car park.
This car is too eye-catching, I’m afraid it’ll be noticed.”

The car they’d taken today was the cheapest Benz in Ji Ran’s garage.
As they headed towards the car park, he muttered, “How is this eye-catching? Those debtors are country bumpkins, how can they even notice this?”

After parking the car, Qin Man undid his seatbelt.
“Wait for me here, I’ll be right back.
If I don’t return after 10 minutes…”

Ji Ran asked, “Do I call the police?”

“No need.
That’s too troublesome.” Qin Man told him.
“You can just leave, go home and sleep.”

“…”

Qin Man had just gotten down when he heard the sound of the car door opening.
Ji Ran got off and put on a baseball hat

“Look at your dainty-lady figure.
If you really run into someone, you’d probably be sent flying.
I’ll go with you.”

Saying so, he took the lead and walked in front.
After several steps, he turned back.
“Get going.
What are you waiting for? The faster we finish this, the faster we can return home.”

The person in front of him was clearly shorter than himself, yet he’d called him a dainty lady.
Qin Man couldn’t hold back his amusement.
“Alright.”

Twenty floors later, the elevator doors opened.
Ji Ran imposingly stuck a leg out and walked out, scanning their surroundings.

“There’s no one.
Move faster.”

Qin Man unlocked the door and Ji Ran sized the place up.
This apartment was pretty good; it was spacious and was definitely not cheap.
It looked like Qin Man’s friend was pretty good.

“I’ll go pack.” Qin Man asked, “Would you like a drink?”

“You came here to pack up to abscond, not to entertain me as a guest.” Ji Ran rolled his eyes.

After Qin Man went in, Ji Ran shut the door and took a seat on the sofa.
He began to look around in boredom.

The interior decor was very simple.
The wallpapers were a light grey hue; pretty but meaningless.

Then, he noticed a painting on the wall.
It was a painting of a banyan tree and the ocean.

Ji Ran didn’t know how to appreciate art and only thought it was pretty cool.
But he didn’t know why he kept having a feeling that this painting seemed rather familiar.
He just couldn’t remember.

There seemed to be a signature at the corner.
Just as he stood up to take a closer look, the door to the room opened.

“I’m done.” Qin Man picked up a small duffel bag.
“Let’s go.”

Ji Ran turned around in astonishment.
“… So fast? Also, aren’t there too few things?”

Qin Man replied, “I didn’t have much in the first place.”

“Forget it, let’s go.
You can just buy whatever you lack later.” Ji Ran pointed at the painting on the wall.
“Are you not going to take this?”

When he looked at the painting, Qin Man’s eyebrows rose subtly.
“… That’s not mine.
It’s the landlord’s.”

“Oh.” Ji Ran took another look and asked, “Who’s the landlord? Is he selling this painting?”

“Do you like it?” Qin Man asked.

“It’s alright.
I just thought it looked pretty nice on the wall.”

“This was painted by the landlord.” Qin Man smiled, “He probably isn’t selling it.”

After hearing this, Ji Ran no longer bothered about it.
He was never an artistic person and this was the first time he was interested in a painting.

The two people arrived back at the car without a hitch.
Ji Ran took off his cap and threw it towards the back as he started the car.

“Then, if I move in, will I be disturbing you?” Qin Man asked.

“You won’t.
Don’t think too highly of yourself.” Ji Ran said, “What, you only thought of this after putting your luggage in my car?”

Qin Man answered, “Isn’t Yu Wen Wen staying at your house too?”

“So what… I already told you we’re only friends.
Don’t look at us with those filthy eyes.”

Qin Man smiled.
“Okay.”

They drove all the way home.
Just as the car turned into a smaller alley Ji Ran saw a cab parked in front of his house and blocking his garage.

The cab was unmoving for a long time.
Just as Ji Ran’s patience was about to run thin, the door opened.

A woman wearing a wide jean jacket and miniskirt with black pantyhose sauntered off the cab.

She had a head full of black hair.
When she stepped out, she wasn’t in a hurry.
Instead, she supported herself on the car door and bent forward to throw a glance at the driver.
Her voice was coy, “Little brother, take care on the road.
Bye.”

After bidding farewell, the woman turned around and made her way towards the front door with the support of the wall.
She fished out a key and prepared to open the door.

Qin Man had followed him home to change a different set of car earlier and thus, knew that the house the woman was trying to get into was Ji Ran’s.

Before he could ask, Ji Ran had already unfastened his seatbelt.
With a soft curse, he rushed out of the car.

Ji Ran hurried over to the woman’s side.
Without a word or complaint, he took her handbag and supported her by the waist.

Qin Man stared at them with narrowed eyes.
After a few seconds, he too, got off the car.

Within the short span of time, he had already rearranged his expression.
He walked towards the two people with a slight smile and asked, “Do you need any help?”

The woman threw herself onto Ji Ran and snuggled.
“Little Ran Ran… why are you only home at this time.
Just in time, help me to take a bath.”

Ji Ran picked up the bag and even supported her.
He turned to Qin Man impatiently, “No need, go back to the car and wait for me… Nevermind, just park the car into the garage and meet us back inside.”

Qin Man glanced at the person in Ji Ran’s arms and abruptly asked, “Is she your lover?”

Ji Ran froze, “What?”

“Am I not enough to satisfy you?” Qin Man sneered, “Or are both genders okay for you?”

Ji Ran finally understood and was angered to the point of laughing.
“Not only do I like men and women, I can even go for both the young and the old.
Do you have a problem with that?”

Qin Man stood on the spot in deep contemplation for a long time.

Ji Ran, “What are you in a daze for? Move aside, don’t block my way.”

“I’m thinking.” Qin Man said lightly, “About how to chase her away.”

Ji Ran thought his ears were playing a joke on him.
“What?”

“I’m kidding.” Qin Man’s smile returned in full blossom.
“I’ll help you hold her, you can open the door.”

Saying so, he didn’t wait for a reply before grabbing the woman’s hand and dragging her over.

Ji Ran also didn’t want to stand in the chilling wind all night.
He swiftly used his fingerprint to open the door while tossing the spare key back into the bag.
“You two go up first, I’ll go park the car.”

The woman was heavier than he’d expected but he still supported her.
With a hand on her shoulder and another on her waist, he avoided touching any sensitive parts.
“Alright.”

After entering the house, Qin Man’s smile grew restrained.
After setting the person down on the sofa, he prepared to get up when the woman suddenly reached out to grab his wrist.

There was light in the room.
Qin Man finally saw the woman’s face; big eyes, full lips and a high nose bridge.
She reclined against the sofa, revealing a long and slender leg.

The type that straight men liked the most.

“Let go.”

Having consumed alcohol before this, the woman’s eyes were limpid and carried a trace of redness.
“A-Am I drunk?”

Qin Man didn’t reply and just as he was about to retract his hand, the other person’s grip unexpectedly tightened.

“I must be – drunk.” The woman whimpered.
“I’m floating.
I actually dare to dream of such a thing.
I even dreamt of Qin Man – I – I’m a beast.
I’ve let Little Ran Ran down.”

Qin Man’s brows wrinkled, a flash of doubt appeared in his eyes.
After a moment, he asked, “You know me?”

The woman didn’t reply, only blabbering useless sleep talk.
She grasped Qin Man’s hand tightly and struggled to sit upright.
Then, she suddenly leaned in, “But! Since I’m already dreaming! I won’t be polite!”

Ji Ran had finished parking the car as he entered through the back door.
Once he opened the door, he heard a faint groan.

“Boohoo… it hurts… Little Ran Ran, he’s trying to kill me… wuwuwu.
Urk.”

Ji Ran hurried into the living room and was stunned by the scene he saw.

Qin Man had pushed the other person faced-down onto the sofa.
With one hand suppressing her, the other hand effortlessly shackled both her arms.
He even had a knee on her back.

A beautiful subduing technique that would cause the person on the bottom to feel pain but be unable to break free.

Ji Ran was shocked.
“Qin Man, what are you doing?”

“Your taste in women is really lacking.” Qin Man said, “She just tried to take off my clothes.”

Ji Ran, “…”

Ji Ran rubbed his temples, feeling a headache approaching.
“Let go first.”

Qin Man tried to push his luck.
“If you don’t want to be cuckolded, I suggest you dump her.”

“… Cuckolded your head.” Ji Ran ran out of patience.
“Are you blind?! That’s Yu Wen Wen! Hurry up and let him go!”

Qin Man, “…”

Yu Wen Wen, “Ying ying ying…”

Yu Wen Wen wasn’t completely wasted.
After experiencing such a turmoil, the fright he received had woken him up completely.

He wasn’t completely awake either but at least he wasn’t as out of it as before.

He curled up on the sofa and sobbed, reaching a pitiful hand towards Ji Ran.
“Wuwuwu, Little Ranran, is my hand dislocated? Or is it broken? It-It hurts, wuwuwu…”

“It’s not, they’re fine.” Ji Ran replied, “You stink.
Hurry up and take a bath.”

Qin Man sat as straight as a ramrod.
He apologised in a sincere tone, “I’m sorry.”

Yu Wen Wen picked up the glass of water on the table and drank a mouthful.
“Little Ran Ran, am I still concussed? Why can I still see Qin Man?”

“Stop acting crazy.
How do you think you injured your hand?”

Yu Wen Wen paused and turned towards him.
“… You’re really Qin Man?”

Qin Man answered, “I am.”

“… Then I just-” Yu Wen Wen started to cry again.
“I didn’t mean it.
I thought I was dreaming.
Little Ran Ran, you know me.
I wouldn’t dare to touch your man.”

“Yes, yes, yes.” Ji Ran was already used to his drunk persona.
“Take off your clothes and go take a bath.”

“Then, will you be mad at me?” Yu Wen Wen looked at him pitifully and asked.

Ji Ran let out another sigh and could not be bothered to continue this conversation.
“I won’t.”

“Thank goodness.”

Yu Wen Wen stood up and headed for the bathroom.
Suddenly, he seemed to recall something and swiftly turned back.

He walked towards Qin Man.
“Little Man Man, I was wrong just now.”

He fished something out of his pocket with unwillingness in his eyes.
“This – take this as compensation.
It’s really good.
If you don’t believe me, you can try it with Ran Ran.”

Qin Man took a look at the object in his hand.
It was a small transparent bottle filled with clear liquid.
From the words written on it, it was clearly lube.

Two big words were written on it — Limited Edition.

Ji Ran also saw it and his patience finally snapped.
He picked up the bolster by his side and chucked it towards Yu Wen Wen.
“Don’t give him these weird gifts.
Scram into the bathroom now!”
