“We talked about it,” Xie Lian says, hearing the frustration in his voice. “I want to go to the next step.”
“It's okay if you don't—” Hua Cheng started.
“I do! God, I want it so much. I don't want you thinking that I don't. I—I think about it all the time, San Lang.”
Hua Cheng looks pleased, the tops of his cheekbones flushing to match his red shirt, and his thumb strokes the back of Xie Lian's hand.
“What do you think about, gege?”
Xie Lian seeks a lesson in desire. And another. And another.

Xie Lian was in his senior year of being a law major and his reputation was impeccable. Renowned for his beauty, talent in dance, astounding grades, and polite disposition, his name was whispered about all over campus. He was practically flawless, and would have been even more popular, if not for how untouchable his love life was. It seemed the campus Crown Prince was completely uninterested in dating.
Then he meets the sophomore upset, Hua Cheng, infamous for his wanton behaviour and easy smiles, in a cafe - and the rumours start flying.
“Have you heard? The Crown Prince is having an affair with the literature department’s number one bigshot!”
The essence of evil is thick enough to drink, and he can taste it even now, before he’s let it under his tongue and into his throat. It’s oppressive, and he has to resist the call to drown in it.
Xie Lian tries to pull away but the grip on his wrists tightens to something dangerous.
“I wouldn’t, if I were you,” Hua Cheng murmurs.
Hua Cheng has always given everything he is to Xie Lian. For once, Xie Lian wants him to be selfish so Xie Lian can give something back.
