CH 18

ao Ke’s arm so hard that it hurt a little.

Zhou Zui immediately said, “Let go.”

“Don’t you feel any guilt, Zhou Zui?” The man squinted over and stared into Zhou Zui’s eyes, “You dare to start dating? You think you’re brave if you start dating? Do you think you’re allowed to move on?”

“You’re fucking spouting bullshit!” Lu Xiaobei cursed at the bottom.
“Motherfucking bastard dick, don’t fucking rant here.
If you have something to say, just say it and get the fuck out!”

Zhou Zui had been quite calm before, but now he had also changed expression.
He kicked the stool which hit the man’s knee with a loud thud, and it sounded like it hurt.
Zhou Zui’s voice was very cold.
“I told you to let go.”

The man did not move so Zhou Zui kicked the chair away and came over to grab the man’s arm.
Xiao Ke didn’t let him touch it and said “it’s okay” before he quickly raised his arm to squeeze the man’s shoulder.
The man let go when he was in pain.
Xiao Ke rubbed his arm and said, “He used a bit of strength.”

Xiao Ke smiled at Zhou Zui, then went straight downstairs to find Lu Xiaobei to eat.
He was not interested in hearing more.
To be honest, he wanted to know all the things related to Zhou Zui, but did not care to receive them in this way, as a messy bystander.
He wanted to know what Zhou Zui had to tell him, otherwise he did not care to pry into his past.

Xiao Ke did not ask a single question during the meal, although Lu Xiaobei did not intend to say anything, but Xiao Ke did not ask which made Lu Xiaobei a little puzzled.
Xiao Ke finished eating and left without saying goodbye since he did not see Zhou Zui when he looked upstairs.

Although this matter today had nothing to do with him, it was impossible for it not to affect his mood.
The handsome man with the unpleasant voice and decent looks had an unknown relationship with Zhou Zui, and the few words he said had a lot of information which Xiao Ke could not understand.
Anyway, there was no reason to think about it as there was no point.
He was not necessarily right to think more about it.

That night, before going to bed, he received a rare message from Zhou Zui, and when he opened it, it said, [Professor Xiao, sorry for today.]

Xiao Ke quickly replied to him, [Why are you sorry? There is nothing wrong.]

It showed Zhou Zui typing for quite a while, and Xiao Ke kept waiting, but finally there was only one short sentence.
[Get some rest.]

Xiao Ke pursed his lips and looked at the screen, then gave back a ‘good night’ emoji.

This matter seemed to have no effect.
Xiao Ke did not really take it to heart, but in the end, it still affected the process of Xiao Ke pursuing him.

Xiao Ke did not go to the parlor for the next two weeks, and the flowers were still delivered as usual, but he did not go there.

“It’s over,” Lu Xiaobei said while drawing a design to add to his collector flash.1 “After much difficulty, a good person finally came, but he’s been forced to leave.”

Xiao Lin watched him draw on the side while sneaking a glance at Zhou Zui who was tattooing someone.
She did not dare to answer.

“That idiot with a neurotic paranoid look, eyes glazed red, what good person wouldn’t run away?” Lu Xiaobei remembered this and got mad.
“Like the star of death.”

Zhou Zui had that permanent look of indifference, as if he couldn’t hear him mutter.

Lu Xiaobei looked at Zhou Zui and asked, “Has your fanboy contacted you in the past few days?”

Zhou Zui still didn’t look up or make a sound, but he seemed to gently shake his head.

Xiao Lin’s eyes widened and both Lu Xiaobei and Xiao Lin looked at each other.
She opened her mouth and expressed surprise at Zhou Zui’s response.
Lu Xiaobei was more enraged as he frowned and said again, “This is really the end.
Now I’m left with an old bachelor no one wants to take.”

The tattoo customer gave a snort and laughed.
She was a very cheerful girl, and said with a smile, “Stop it, okay.
If no one wants to grab him, would there be no one else but me who will take him?”

Lu Xiaobei said, “If no one else wants him, you can take him.”

The girl looked up at Zhou Zui and said, “Uncle, would you consider a loli?”

Zhou Zui did not give any expression and shook his head before he only gave a sentence, “Do not move your arm.”

“You see? There’s no way,” The girl said with a smile.
“I guess my gender is not possible.
I won’t move.”

Lu Xiaobei quickly finished three small drawings and took them over to Zhou Zui, who scanned them and said, “Generally, it’s too conventional.
Don’t lose your personal style, it’s just a set.”

“Mn, I’ll change it later.” Lu Xiaobei never talked back in this area, and he was very humble.
He had been with Zhou Zui for too many years, and his skills were taught by Zhou Zui, who had only one apprentice so he got along with him for more years than he should have.

Lu Xiaobei still thought about Xiao Ke’s matter and took out the phone to send a message, [Brother Xiao, if you do not come again, my big brother will be taken by others.
When the time comes, don’t say Beibei didn’t tell you in advance.]

Lu Xiaobei waited half a day for a reply, and his heart was cold.
“It’s over.”

Zhou Zui looked up at him, and Lu Xiaobei said, “No message back.”

Zhou Zui seemed to have no ripples in his heart, and lowered his head to finish his work.
Lu Xiaobei said, “Old Zhou, you’re pretending.
Fang Xi and the others always call you sexually frigid.
Now, I think you deserve it.
In fact, it’s too little.”

Translator Notes:

I don’t know if this is the first time this has been mentioned or not, but pre-made tattoo designs are called flash tattoos and are a pre-made design you find on posters and inside books at the parlor.
There are two types of flash tattoos: Market.
Market Flash is a set of popular designs clients ask for, such as a heart, rose, or pop culture reference.
These are what you see hanging on walls or kept in the lobby books.
Collector flash is unique to tattoo artists.
They are designs made specifically by the artist in their preferred style or of their own interests.
