s arm laying on the table, and he was quite the fat piece of meat in the eyes of those people who were hunting around in the bar.
However, no one would come over while someone was sitting across the table since they knew there was already a partner.
However, both of them had actually only  spoken a few words in total, so when watching them, others could see that both of them were either not too familiar, or they did not really know each other.

After a while, a man came over, and leaned down to look at Xiao Ke’s face before he blew out a breath and asked, “Do you want to drink?”

Xiao Ke opened his eyes to look at him and waved his hand.
“No way.”

“There’s no need to be so dry.
To stay up this late and not have a drink, isn’t it a loss?” The person didn’t want to give up just yet.
He lowered his voice a bit, and hooked a finger around Xiao Ke’s zipper with a flirty expression in his eyes.
“I can top or bottom.
You pick.” 1

These words were spoken close to Xiao Ke’s ear so Zhou Zui could not hear them, and he could only see Xiao Ke’s frown.
Thus, when Xiao Ke straightened himself while trying to dodge that man’s mouth, Zhou Zui coughed and spoke up, “Stop fucking flirting, dude.
There’s a living human being sitting right here.”

“Oh, you know each other?” The man glanced at Zhou Zui before he straightened himself and laughed.
“But I didn’t see you talking.
How about…we all do it together?”

Zhou Zui didn’t look at him again, and only responded, “You can’t force him.
Give up.” 

A rule in this bar was that everything needed to be done willingly.
If one wasn’t willing, then nobody could force them to do anything.
That man shrugged before regretfully sauntering off.
Zhou Zui told the drunk man, “Go home, Mr.
People’s Teacher.”

Xiao Ke pulled out his phone to check the time before nodding.
“Yeah, I have to go.”

They went to pay the bill together while Old Su was standing by the bar.
When Xiao Ke had arrived, he had been alone, but he suddenly now had a partner as he was leaving.
Old Su’s gaze shifted between the two of them, but his business has taught him when to talk and what to say, so he could only smile while he asked, “Leaving now?”

“Mn, the bill please,” Xiao Ke replied. 

The two had been seated at the same table, so it was only natural that both their bills had been combined.
Zhou Zui took out his card and handed it over.
“Swipe this card.”

Xiao Ke hurriedly pulled out his wallet, took out a card, then threw it over.
“This one.”

“Hey, no fighting.” Old Su laughed at them.
“It’s the same no matter which one I swipe.
It’s not that big of a deal.”

He had known Xiao Ke for a long time so with one look, he naturally grabbed Xiao Ke’s card before handing it to the server.
“Swipe this one, it’s the usual.” 

Xiao Ke stood by the bar while waiting for his card to be swiped and to sign the receipt.
He spoke with Old Su for a bit, and when he turned around to leave after paying, he discovered that Zhou Zui had already left.
Xiao Ke said goodbye to Old Su and headed off.

Old Su said owlishly, “Enjoy your spring night.”

Xiao Ke knew that he was overthinking it, but he didn’t try to explain himself.
It had been more than a year since the breakup so there was no need to explain since that would make it seem like he was saving his body.
How boring.
Xiao Ke waved his hand and swiveled around to leave.

While he walked, he wondered if he should have asked for his phone number.

As a result, when he exited, he saw that man leaning against the wall near the door as he smoked with his head lowered.
Xiao Ke looked at him and the man waved.
“Over here.” 

Xiao Ke walked over and asked, “Waiting for me?”

“Mn,” Zhou Zui answered.

Xiao Ke suddenly laughed, and his eyes curved downward along with his beautiful smile.
He said, “I don’t date, I’m a serious person.”

Zhou Zui also smiled, stuffed a business card into his pocket before saying, “Thanks for the drink tonight.
If you have time to find me, I’ll give you a gift in return.”

“You’re welcome but there’s no need.” Xiao Ke waved his hand.
“I wanted to thank you for drinking with me.
Today’s my birthday, and at least I had a companion.”

Zhou Zui paused for a moment before he said, “Happy birthday.”

It was the fate of a casual encounter.
It was a comical scene to have a stranger stand in front of him while wishing him happy birthday, and Xiao Ke wanted to laugh from the bottom of his heart.
Therefore, he really laughed, took out the business card and shook it while asking Zhou Zui, “What gift are you going to give me?”

Zhou Zui took a puff of his cigarette and said, “I don’t know anything else, but if you want to get a tattoo, find me.”

Tattoos were a matter that was far too removed from him, but he inexplicably felt very close to Zhou Zui since the profession of tattoo artist was still cool to him. 

Xiao Ke nodded, “Okay.”

The shallow relationship was coming to an end, and it was time for Xiao Ke to go home.
The business card was clutched in his hand, but he didn’t look down at it.
When Zhou Zui was about to leave, Xiao Ke called out a “hey” to stop him.

Zhou Zui turned around with a half-raised eyebrow. 

Xiao Ke asked him, “Your last name is Zhou.
Zhou what? I didn’t quite catch it then.”


Zhou Zui looked at him, then softly responded, “Zhou Zui— Zui as in sin.”
