Chapter 209 – Ling Xiao’s Real Face
Ling Xiao lazily looked at him as his eyes lingered on You XiaoMo’s curious eyes. He then suddenly gave an ambiguous smile. He moved next to You XiaoMo, making the distance between them closer, so close that their eyelashes met each other.
You XiaoMo could feel Ling Xiao’s breath on his face. He began to blush, fortunately it was nighttime, even if his face was red no one would see. Seeing Ling Xiao looking at him without saying anything, You XiaoMo placed his hand on Ling Xiao‘s chest and pushed, “You haven’t answered my question.”
Ling Xiao placed his hair over his ear, *haha* he laughed, “It’s not that I can’t show you my true face, but….what will you do in exchange?”
After hearing those words, You XiaoMo had an urge to swear, why did he have to pay just to see his face? Like he would believe Ling Xiao would use Lin Xiao’s face everyday after, but…he was super curious ah, he really wanted to know what his original look was like.
You XiaoMo hesitated for a long time, then cautiously asked, “That….what do you want?”
Hearing his reluctant words, Ling Xiao withheld his laughter, as he pointed to his lips and said, “If you take the initiative to kiss me, I will let you see.”
You XiaoMo bit his lower lip, his eyes flashed as he seemed to think about the pros and cons.
Ling Xiao didn’t urge him, he lay on the grass waiting for his decision.
Seeing his “it doesn’t matter what your answer is” attitude, You XiaoMo clenched his teeth, he checked around first, and then when he sure no one was looking, he sat up, crawled toward Ling Xiao and gave his lips a peck. This was the first time he took the initiative in kissing.
When he thought the kiss was long enough, he didn’t think that by the time he wanted to move away, Ling Xiao’s hand was already on the back of his head and suddenly those lips that had just left were now touching again.
Ling Xiao directly pried open his teeth, as his tongue flexibly occupied inside, turning that peck into a deep kiss, his tongue licked every corner inside You XiaoMo’s mouth, only when his face started going red did Ling Xiao let him go.
“Xiao Momo, this is what you call kissing!” Ling Xiao licked his lips and laughed.
You XiaoMo heavily breathed in and out while wiping the saliva at the corner of his mouth. This kiss nearly made his heart beat out of his chest, “Can you now let me see your real face?”
Ling Xiao lowered his voice as he laughed, “Oh, you really want to see it that much?”
“Of course I …” Xiao Mo raised his head, and when he saw Ling Xiao’s face, he became speechless. His eyes went blank as if his soul had left his body, and it took awhile before that glazed look left.
This man, no wonder even when his identity was revealed, he still didn’t bring his true face to light. Turned out it was too bewitching. His appearance was exceedingly outstanding and handsome, so enchanting and sexy but it didn’t lose the masculinity. Like a god descending to the mundane world. His gentle smile was dazzling and warm like the sun, even those sparkling stars could not compete with him, of course, this was before he opened his mouth.
If he had this look, he would need a mask everyday.
But unfortunately, he didn’t have one to show off.
Ling Xiao saw his foolish expression, he couldn’t help but give an elegant smile. His slender finger lifted up You XiaoMo’s head, his lazy eyes filled with passion as they stared at You XiaoMo. “Xiao Momo, are you being enchanted by me?”
You XiaoMo finally got back his soul. He covered his mouth with a guilty conscience as he turned away, “I am not.”
“No?” Ling Xiao moved closer as he smiled, “But I see your face is red like a ripe apple.”
“Your eyes must be wrong then.” You XiaoMo cast aside his hand, he turned his back around to stop looking at Ling Xiao.
Of course how could Ling Xiao let You XiaoMo escape, the more he resisted the more he couldn’t hide. Ling Xiao simply embraced his whole body under his arms, they both rolled over as Ling Xiao put him under his body. He rubbed his face on You XiaoMo’s hot cheek, very maliciously saying, “Still saying no? Your cheek is so hot, obviously someone was enchanted.”
You XiaoMo rolled his eyes as he stared at that handsome face, he couldn’t control his heart from rampaging. It went thump thump thump violently. He was so done now, he really had feelings for him.
In his past life, he had never gone through anything called love, but it was not like he couldn’t understand the feeling. He knew what this unnatural heartbeat meant, but because he knew what it was, he felt that he might get sick. Ling Xiao is a man ah.
To make matters worse, not only had he kissed this man everyday, but also not long ago, he had sex with him. Wouldn’t that make him homosexual?
This conclusion made You XiaoMo stop thinking. He had lived for nearly 20 years but he never thought he would like a man. Of course, it was not that he looked down on homosexuals, but he still felt a little strange.
Ling Xiao looked at twisted face and he could roughly guess at what was running inside You XiaoMo’s head. He tightly hugged You XiaoMo’s waist, “Xiao Momo, how do you feel about how I usually treat you?”
You XiaoMo lifted up his head, thought a little, then seriously said, “Bad.”
Ling Xiao (-_-“), he chopped You XiaoMo’s head, “I’m not playing around, answer seriously.”
You XiaoMo felt aggrieved, that was his sincere answer after some serious thought. In his opinion, Ling Xiao was indeed a very bad character, not to mention he spun him around every single time. Teasing him was his pastime, obviously his happiness was built on his suffering. Well, those words absolutely were something that he must never tell Ling Xiao.
He thought a little, and he unwillingly forced out a fake answer, “You are very nice to me.”
Hearing the answer, Ling Xiao gave a satisfactory smile, then he asked, “Did you like what I did to you last time?”
You XiaoMo burst into shame, he was not sure if his face was still red from before, or if those words made him red again. He frowned and didn’t answer his question.
Ling Xiao pinched his ass, “Talk, or else we are doing it here tonight.”
You XiaoMo stared at him, could he treat this as a threat?
Ling Xiao smiled as he winked at him, the hand placed on his butt didn’t move an inch. He was even daring enough to shift down to You XiaoMo’s thigh. You XiaoMo was so scared, he quickly clenched his butt cheeks together and surrendered.
“I will talk okay? Take your hand off.”
Ling Xiao showed a regretful look, actually he had hoped that You XiaoMo would persist a little longer.
How could You XiaoMo not see the “ambition of a wild wolf” (t/n: ill intention, vicious thought), he flew into a rage out of humiliation as he glared at Ling Xiao. But then shamefully lowered down his head and whispered, “L….Like…”
You XiaoMo dragged out the sentence, how could Ling Xiao not see through his motive, he pinched and then rubbed You XiaoMo’s sensitive spot.
“I liked it!” You XiaoMo was stimulated and immediately yelled.
And then everyone all turned around to see them, although they couldn’t see their faces, but people noticed it was two men, then the whispering started. If anyone came here then it must be to view the stars. If you came as a pair then you must be lovers. Even if it wasn’t, it was unlikely to see two men who came here together, some couldn’t help but doubt their relationship.
You XiaoMo’s face turned red, he admitted that he liked to play around and kiss Ling Xiao. He certainly liked to be together with him and he had almost accepted the fact that he was in love with Ling Xiao, but to publicly confess it, he was not that brave.
Even though Ling Xiao said that two men can be together, he is not dumb. In this world, straight couples were the thing, not gay couples.
After he pushed Ling Xiao away, You XiaoMo crawled up and ran away.
Ling Xiao stood up, dusted away all the grass blades off his clothes, and immediately pursued the lost lamb.
He was caught right away, and Ling Xiao’s strong arms surrounded his constantly struggling body. “Okay okay, not playing with you anymore, the sky is already seen, let’s go back to the tavern.”
You XiaoMo raised his head, when he was about to speak, a line of gasping continuously broke out. Only now did You XiaoMo realize Ling Xiao didn’t change back to Lin Xiao’s face, no wonder he attracted so much attention. Seeing more and more onlookers stare with lusty eyes toward Ling Xiao, he immediately grabbed Ling Xiao’s hand and pulled him back to the tavern.
When they got back to their room, after closing the door You XiaoMo straightforwardly pointed at the lack of interest Ling Xiao had and criticized, “Why don’t you change back your face?”
Ling Xiao took a sip of tea, he leaned his head to the side, indifferently saying, “Why should I change back?”
You XiaoMo came over, stole away his cup and drank it empty without hesitation. He went quiet for a few minutes, then pushed back the cup into Ling Xiao’s hand, unwillingly saying, ” A man’s beauty is a sin.”
T/n: the original idiom is 红颜祸水, means a woman’s beauty is the root of all trouble, with the charactet 红 ( pink) as a metaphor for woman, but in here, You XiaoMo changed it to 蓝 ( blue), indicating a male’s role. XD clever You XiaoMo.
Ling Xiao found it so funny, he then picked up the teapot again and poured another cup, then he drank right at the spot You XiaoMo just put his lip, and then ambiguously looked at him. He said, “Rest assured, I only love to sin with you.”
You XiaoMo blushed again, he made a *tsk* sound to cover the thump thump of his heartbeat. He would never admit that hearing that sentence made him super happy.
From next door came the sound of a heavy object landing.
