If you're not reading it there, you get what you get  ̄へ ̄)

Adhering to a speak little and do little principle, throughout the entire course of the evening, Xiao Ning maintained his silence.

This was on account of Shan Haiming's attitude while they were there, so no one managed to bother him after that.

Only Shan Haiming would ask him a few sentences every now and again, to which he gave careful replies.

All the others around them could do was stare on with blank expressions.

As Xiao Ning even managed to pull out his phone at sometime during it all to send Lu Yan a message asking what he would like for lunch.

To this question, a guy who had just introduced himself as Heshu Zhou, let out a hearty laugh before replying, "Xiao-shao, don't you see what time it is We can still keep going some more."

Xiao Ning then regained his senses: "..."

Looks as if I'm gong to have to carry out this good deed of the day all the way to the end. Xiao Ning found himself thinking. It's just a way to accumulate good virtue.

It's just making a new friend like Wang Hua had said.

During this time, someone had chosen to sing the King of Karaoke[1], and their rendition of the song was soulful.

That guy being considerate to this degree took Xiao Ning by surprise.

So far he got the feeling that despite Shan Haiming's attitude that was imbued with him having his own way, it seemed as though he was not like all the other rich guys.

To this question, a guy who had just introduced himself as Heshu Zhou, let out a hearty laugh before replying, "Xiao-shao, don't you see what time it is We can still keep going some more."

Releasing a long sigh, Xiao Ning, after a silent grumble, carefully leaned his body while supporting Shan Haiming to allow the two of them to stand up.

That apartment had two bedrooms, and Xiao Ning only ever stayed in the one for guests.

The master bedroom was reserved for Lu Yan, even if he only ever went there less than a couple of times for the year.

Plus, in that master bedroom there was none of Lu Yan's personal belongings, and when he was there, Xiao Ning never stepped foot in it.

Xiao Ning: "..."

When that guy offload's his problems, he's quite thorough, isn't he But Xiao Ning wasn't really mad at Wang Hua, after all, the other man's wife was in the hospital giving birth, and he still had to deal with that situation.

So he wasn't wrong for him to do that.

Enough to coax a smile from Xiao Ning when he looked up and saw the lyrics, while he still fiddled around with his phone.

Their measurements were more or less the same, and Shan Haiming didn't look bad at all wearing Xiao Ning's tracksuit.

In fact, he looked a lot better in it than Xiao Ning ever did.

But Xiao Ning wasn't all too comfortable with Shan Haiming's taking it without asking him first, however he just avoided the topic, "Mr Shan, you drank a lot last night, so do you feel better now"

Shan Haiming never sang, however.

Only downing glass after glass as he drank with the others.

Xiao Ning guessed his mood must've not been all that great because of this.

But the more he thought about, when adding the fact he found some random guy to at like his boyfriend, he also guessed the other must've had some secret.

Xiao Ning just turned his attention to Shan Haiming, who had his brows now tightly knitted, not knowing if the act was due to the other man having a headache on account of his drinking, or whether it was because he had some other unsolved troubles weighing on his mind.

"Do you like men"

During this time, someone had chosen to sing the King of Karaoke, and their rendition of the song was soulful.

Xiao Ning: "..."

"The user you are trying to reach has had their device switched off."

But such matters was that man's own business, and Xiao Ning had his own issues to take care of, so where would he find the energy to be gossiping about that.

Xiao Ning responded after, saying, "Let's reheat the congee before we eat it, you drank a good bit yesterday, so it's better if you ate warm congee."

Looks as if I'm gong to have to carry out this good deed of the day all the way to the end. Xiao Ning found himself thinking. It's just a way to accumulate good virtue.

It's just making a new friend like Wang Hua had said.

Carried Home

Although his face is not particularly oozing a healthy flush, there was however no sign of the fatigue expected from his past night's drinking.

So if you took his appearance from the night prior into account, his recovery was rather amazing.

When he finally realised the situation around him again, the show was at an end, and only a few people were left standing.

What's more, since the target of their concentrated firepower was Shan Haiming, he was of course not spared.

"Haiming" He then called out softly, but Shan Haiming's eyes didn't open in return.

Xiao Ning then regained his senses: "..."

Seeing the group was still acting rowdy, a bit of compassion welled up within him. Everyone had their own troubles it seems. After supporting Shan Haiming, he tried to stand.

Drunks were always especially heavy, but thankfully Shan Haiming didn't struggle.

Xiao Ning then said to Heshu Zhou, "I'm sorry, but Shan Haiming and I will be leaving first.

You guys can continue enjoying yourselves, alright"

Xiao Ning gave his all and persisted until Shan Haiming finally had a reaction.

The man then opened his eyes slightly, his unfocused gaze swaying until it landed on Xiao Ning's face, as his lips then parting...

Baili, who had also drank himself into a stupor, was tapping Shan Haiming's shoulder, wanting to ask him something, but the other man simply flung off his advances.

Shan Haiming instead just closed his eyes, repulsion clear on his face melded with the mischievous look of a person holding no interest in talking with anyone, as he leant his body against Xiao Ning.

When that guy offload's his problems, he's quite thorough, isn't he But Xiao Ning wasn't really mad at Wang Hua, after all, the other man's wife was in the hospital giving birth, and he still had to deal with that situation.

So he wasn't wrong for him to do that.

Xiao Ning felt that in this current moment, him not saying anything more would be difficult to be explained away.

So after reaching out his hand to support the man against him, he said, "It looks like you're all spent.

Are you guys planning on leaving as well"

Looks as if I'm gong to have to carry out this good deed of the day all the way to the end. Xiao Ning found himself thinking. It's just a way to accumulate good virtue.

It's just making a new friend like Wang Hua had said.

Xiao Ning: "..."

The person who came in and did so was wearing sportswear, while carrying a plastic bag, showing signs of freshness which was similar to the moisture of the morning dew, "You're up"

Their measurements were more or less the same, and Shan Haiming didn't look bad at all wearing Xiao Ning's tracksuit.

In fact, he looked a lot better in it than Xiao Ning ever did.

But Xiao Ning wasn't all too comfortable with Shan Haiming's taking it without asking him first, however he just avoided the topic, "Mr Shan, you drank a lot last night, so do you feel better now"

Having made it to this point, Xiao Ning never intended for Shan Haiming to sleep on the sofa.

The man was Wang Hua's new boss, after all, so showing this bit of favour was also doable by Xiao Ning.

To this question, a guy who had just introduced himself as Heshu Zhou, let out a hearty laugh before replying, "Xiao-shao, don't you see what time it is We can still keep going some more."

Adhering to a speak little and do little principle, throughout the entire course of the evening, Xiao Ning maintained his silence.

This was on account of Shan Haiming's attitude while they were there, so no one managed to bother him after that.

Only Shan Haiming would ask him a few sentences every now and again, to which he gave careful replies.

All the others around them could do was stare on with blank expressions.

As Xiao Ning even managed to pull out his phone at sometime during it all to send Lu Yan a message asking what he would like for lunch.

While being pressed below the other man, Xiao Ning honestly just wanted to stay lying there until morning.

Having consoled himself, once he was done building up his mental fortitude, Xiao Ning called them a taxi, and then had to wait over an hour for the cab to speedily arrive.

What time it was It was almost midnight.

Xiao Ning's eyes slightly widened, with him barely managing a response, "Mr.

Shan"

"Sounds good." Shan Haiming threw the can back, "You should go reheat them, then."

The cold wind of the night air hummed, and Xiao Ning noticed Shan Haiming had finally finished vomiting.

His face was now completely white, his body hanging weakly, with him completely unresponsive.

This was how Xiao ning was able to pull out Shan Haiming's phone to see if he could contact one of the man's family members or friends.

Only to find out after clicking on the screen that a password was required.

Xiao Ning just turned his attention to Shan Haiming, who had his brows now tightly knitted, not knowing if the act was due to the other man having a headache on account of his drinking, or whether it was because he had some other unsolved troubles weighing on his mind.

"Thanks for last night, by the way.

It was a good thing that Wang Hua managed to have found someone reliable.

Shan Haiming did not go into any details beyond this, and Xiao Ning would naturally not ask him for more, saying, "It was nothing, besides, it wasn't that troublesome."

Even though the words stated in his sentence leaned towards ones of mockery, Shan Haiming's tone when he said them, to the contrast, was very light hearted, seeming as though it was just a casual mention which made Xiao Ning not know what he really meant.

Looks as if I'm gong to have to carry out this good deed of the day all the way to the end. Xiao Ning found himself thinking. It's just a way to accumulate good virtue.

It's just making a new friend like Wang Hua had said.

Shan Haiming walked over and gave him the keys, taking a seat right beside him before moving to put the stuff in his other hand on the table, "Don't leave your keys lying about."

Xiao Ning: "..."

"Haiming" He then called out softly, but Shan Haiming's eyes didn't open in return.

Shan Haiming only let out a groan, then no longer responded.

Xiao Ning just then remembered all those western liquor he had drank straight, a really bad feeling then coming over over.

So when they had made it to the elevator, he gave Wang Hua a call.

Shan Haiming nodded absentmindedly upon hearing this, while rummaging through the bag on the table and pulling out some biscuits and cans of Eight Treasures Congee, "I couldn't find any places selling breakfast here, there was only a supermarket, so we'll have to make do with eating these."

Xiao Ning: "..."

Seeing the group was still acting rowdy, a bit of compassion welled up within him. Everyone had their own troubles it seems. After supporting Shan Haiming, he tried to stand.

This was how Xiao ning was able to pull out Shan Haiming's phone to see if he could contact one of the man's family members or friends.

Only to find out after clicking on the screen that a password was required.

Heshu Zhou was the first to be stunned, his gaze moving to examine Shan Haiming's face before moving to smack his own forehead, saying, "Yeah yeah yeah.

Jeez, I'm so thoughtless."

Xiao Ning gave his all and persisted until Shan Haiming finally had a reaction.

The man then opened his eyes slightly, his unfocused gaze swaying until it landed on Xiao Ning's face, as his lips then parting...

to vomit.

Heshu Zhou was the first to be stunned, his gaze moving to examine Shan Haiming's face before moving to smack his own forehead, saying, "Yeah yeah yeah.

Jeez, I'm so thoughtless."

But such matters was that man's own business, and Xiao Ning had his own issues to take care of, so where would he find the energy to be gossiping about that.

As he said this, his expression was rather ambiguous, as he then added "You two can hurry on off now.

I'll have to trouble you to look after him, Xiao Ning."

He vomited violently, spilling his entire heart out as he hunched over and released his stomach's contents.

It was to the point where if not for Xiao Ning pulling him upwards, he would've probably keeled over into his own puke.

From the looks of things, it seemed as though he had not eaten a thing for that day, as there was nothing in his vomit aside from the drinks themselves.

That guy being considerate to this degree took Xiao Ning by surprise.

So far he got the feeling that despite Shan Haiming's attitude that was imbued with him having his own way, it seemed as though he was not like all the other rich guys.

When he finally realised the situation around him again, the show was at an end, and only a few people were left standing.

What's more, since the target of their concentrated firepower was Shan Haiming, he was of course not spared.

After putting Shan Haiming in the car, Xiao Ning gave the driver the address of the apartment he would be staying at temporarily.

Doing so because that place was not too far from their current location, and would take twenty minutes at most for them to get there.

Once there, after much trails and tribulations, Xiao Ning managed to drag Shan Haiming into the apartment.

The task having left him panting for breath as he moved to close the door.

Tossing his keys into the shoe cabinet without any effort, he was then accidentally tripped by Shan Haiming's legs, causing them both to simultaneously fall to the floor.

Xiao Ning: "..."

Xiao Ning: "..."

During this time, someone had chosen to sing the King of Karaoke, and their rendition of the song was soulful.

Shan Haiming nodded absentmindedly upon hearing this, while rummaging through the bag on the table and pulling out some biscuits and cans of Eight Treasures Congee, "I couldn't find any places selling breakfast here, there was only a supermarket, so we'll have to make do with eating these."

Xiao Ning was somewhat infuriated; however after all those years of having his temperament being "trained" by Lu Yan, the anger within him did not surface, as he stuffed it back down himself.

The cold wind of the night air hummed, and Xiao Ning noticed Shan Haiming had finally finished vomiting.

His face was now completely white, his body hanging weakly, with him completely unresponsive.

This was how Xiao ning was able to pull out Shan Haiming's phone to see if he could contact one of the man's family members or friends.

To this question, a guy who had just introduced himself as Heshu Zhou, let out a hearty laugh before replying, "Xiao-shao, don't you see what time it is We can still keep going some more."

Since there was nothing he could do about that, Xiao Ning put on a brave face and gave the others a nod, an act which could be considered a greeting.

He then half supported, half dragged, Shan Haiming out of the private room.

As he said this, his expression was rather ambiguous, as he then added "You two can hurry on off now.

I'll have to trouble you to look after him, Xiao Ning."

As the secondary master of the house, Xiao Ning himself took the initiative to do these things as well.

He first went to tidy himself up, then returned to take the two cans of soup into the kitchen.

There was nothing in the fridge there, but the utensils ans cookware in the kitchen were all fully stocked, so Xiao Ning poured the congee into too bowls, then placed them into the microwave fore a couple minutes.

Xiao Ning: "..."

Once he sensed the weight from the one stuck to him get heavier, he dragged Shan Haiming back up again, asking, "Mr.

Shan Are you alright, Mr Shan"

"The user you are trying to reach has had their device switched off."

Xiao Ning then regained his senses: "..."

Looks as if I'm gong to have to carry out this good deed of the day all the way to the end. Xiao Ning found himself thinking. It's just a way to accumulate good virtue.

It's just making a new friend like Wang Hua had said.

"The user you are trying to reach has had their device switched off."

But such matters was that man's own business, and Xiao Ning had his own issues to take care of, so where would he find the energy to be gossiping about that.

"I used your bathroom for a bit, by the way, but why does your house have so many disposable items" Shan Haiming tilted his head, interrupted Xiao Ning's focused stare.

He clearly was not interested in hearing the other man's answer so he continued by adding, "Plus, this is your suit I'm wearing, so I'll buy you back a similar one as compensation."

During this time, someone had chosen to sing the King of Karaoke, and their rendition of the song was soulful.

"The user you are trying to reach has had their device switched off."

Xiao Ning looked at the keys in the other man's hands, reaching out to take it before tucking them back into his pocket.

Only just then did he notice Shan Haiming's hair was a bit damp, and on top of the image of the light grey tracksuit he was wearing, were traces of that "Shan-shao" from the private room the night before.

But the image now shown in front of Xiao Ning's eyes to the contrary seemed to resemble that of a little brother next door.

Adhering to a speak little and do little principle, throughout the entire course of the evening, Xiao Ning maintained his silence.

This was on account of Shan Haiming's attitude while they were there, so no one managed to bother him after that.

Only Shan Haiming would ask him a few sentences every now and again, to which he gave careful replies.

"Do you like men"

Without any sort of washing up, Xiao Ning then dragged Shan Haiming straight into his bedroom, then onto the bed.

A relived breath finally leaving him as he thought about how the craziness of the past few hours that night was now over and done with.

Xiao Ning: "..."

So he wasn't wrong for him to do that.

"Do you like men"

However, Xiao Ning was nevertheless left hung out to dry, while someone else was being carried in his arms.

Now standing in the doorway wearing a dumbfounded expression, Xiao Ning asked, "Mr.

Shan Mr.

Shan, where do you live need to take you home."

Since there was nothing he could do about that, Xiao Ning put on a brave face and gave the others a nod, an act which could be considered a greeting.

He then half supported, half dragged, Shan Haiming out of the private room.

As he said this, his expression was rather ambiguous, as he then added "You two can hurry on off now.

Shan Haiming instead just closed his eyes, repulsion clear on his face melded with the mischievous look of a person holding no interest in talking with anyone, as he leant his body against Xiao Ning.

In the meantime, Xiao Ning felt as though his head was about to explode, as there were no hotels any where near that area for several miles, and the landscaping of the area was rather well-done, since it was all main roads.

Xiao Ning gave his all and persisted until Shan Haiming finally had a reaction.

The man then opened his eyes slightly, his unfocused gaze swaying until it landed on Xiao Ning's face, as his lips then parting...

to vomit.

Shan Haiming never sang, however.

Only downing glass after glass as he drank with the others.

Xiao Ning guessed his mood must've not been all that great because of this.

But the more he thought about, when adding the fact he found some random guy to at like his boyfriend, he also guessed the other must've had some secret.

When he finally realised the situation around him again, the show was at an end, and only a few people were left standing.

What's more, since the target of their concentrated firepower was Shan Haiming, he was of course not spared.

"I'm fine.

After a shower and a jog I'm feeling a lot better." Shan Haiming's brows the drew into a light knit, his inner thoughts unknown.

"And just call me Haiming from now on.

Wasn't it easier to call me that last night"

Shan Haiming nodded absentmindedly upon hearing this, while rummaging through the bag on the table and pulling out some biscuits and cans of Eight Treasures Congee, "I couldn't find any places selling breakfast here, there was only a supermarket, so we'll have to make do with eating these."

"Haiming" He then called out softly, but Shan Haiming's eyes didn't open in return.

When he finally realised the situation around him again, the show was at an end, and only a few people were left standing.

What's more, since the target of their concentrated firepower was Shan Haiming, he was of course not spared.

This sleep he fell into then was rather deep, so much so, that having heard the muffled sounds of someone stirring, all he did was pull the sofa's cushion over his head before again going back to sleep.

Xiao Ning was somewhat infuriated; however after all those years of having his temperament being "trained" by Lu Yan, the anger within him did not surface, as he stuffed it back down himself.

Xiao Ning: "..."

That infamous line said it right: ** happens right when no one expects it to.

However, Xiao Ning was nevertheless left hung out to dry, while someone else was being carried in his arms.

Now standing in the doorway wearing a dumbfounded expression, Xiao Ning asked, "Mr.

Shan Mr.

Shan, where do you live need to take you home."

Carried Home

Without any sort of washing up, Xiao Ning then dragged Shan Haiming straight into his bedroom, then onto the bed.

A relived breath finally leaving him as he thought about how the craziness of the past few hours that night was now over and done with.

The cold wind of the night air hummed, and Xiao Ning noticed Shan Haiming had finally finished vomiting.

His face was now completely white, his body hanging weakly, with him completely unresponsive.

This was how Xiao ning was able to pull out Shan Haiming's phone to see if he could contact one of the man's family members or friends.

Only to find out after clicking on the screen that a password was required.

Shan Haiming was right about one thing he said earlier, Xiao Ning did have a regular work and sleep schedule.

Meaning, he had to go to bed before eleven in order for him to wake up before eight o'clock sharp the next morning, a behaviour that could be regarded as that of a role-model amongst his peers.

So around this time, he truly was quite sleepy.

Thus after a quick washing up, Xiao Ning's entire form then weakly collapsed onto the sofa, not long having passed until he fell fast asleep.

Xiao Ning: "..."

Xiao Ning: "..."

"Haiming" He then called out softly, but Shan Haiming's eyes didn't open in return.

What time it was It was almost midnight.

Looking down at his watch to check the time, he knew since it was the weekend, Lu Yan would never be up before eleven, and would just have himself brunch.

So he figured even a delay of a couple hours would be fine.

Xiao Ning took out the congee and left the kitchen, to see Shan Haiming was already seated at the table eating a few biscuits.

As soon as the porridge was placed in front of him, he began to gulp it all down at a speed which was rather quick.

During this time, someone had chosen to sing the King of Karaoke, and their rendition of the song was soulful.

Looks as if I'm gong to have to carry out this good deed of the day all the way to the end. Xiao Ning found himself thinking. It's just a way to accumulate good virtue.

It's just making a new friend like Wang Hua had said.

Releasing a long sigh, Xiao Ning, after a silent grumble, carefully leaned his body while supporting Shan Haiming to allow the two of them to stand up.

That apartment had two bedrooms, and Xiao Ning only ever stayed in the one for guests.

And Shan Haiming, who only let out a frown to show he was just mildly disturbed, after grinding his jaw a bit, simply found a comfortable spot for himself between Xiao Ning's shoulders before again falling back asleep.

Shan Haiming walked over and gave him the keys, taking a seat right beside him before moving to put the stuff in his other hand on the table, "Don't leave your keys lying about."

Shan Haiming walked over and gave him the keys, taking a seat right beside him before moving to put the stuff in his other hand on the table, "Don't leave your keys lying about."

In the meantime, Xiao Ning felt as though his head was about to explode, as there were no hotels any where near that area for several miles, and the landscaping of the area was rather well-done, since it was all main roads.

Having consoled himself, once he was done building up his mental fortitude, Xiao Ning called them a taxi, and then had to wait over an hour for the cab to speedily arrive.

Without any sort of washing up, Xiao Ning then dragged Shan Haiming straight into his bedroom, then onto the bed.

A relived breath finally leaving him as he thought about how the craziness of the past few hours that night was now over and done with.

This sleep he fell into then was rather deep, so much so, that having heard the muffled sounds of someone stirring, all he did was pull the sofa's cushion over his head before again going back to sleep.

Shan Haiming was right about one thing he said earlier, Xiao Ning did have a regular work and sleep schedule.

Meaning, he had to go to bed before eleven in order for him to wake up before eight o'clock sharp the next morning, a behaviour that could be regarded as that of a role-model amongst his peers.

So around this time, he truly was quite sleepy.

Thus after a quick washing up, Xiao Ning's entire form then weakly collapsed onto the sofa, not long having passed until he fell fast asleep.

Once he sensed the weight from the one stuck to him get heavier, he dragged Shan Haiming back up again, asking, "Mr.

Shan Are you alright, Mr Shan"

This sleep he fell into then was rather deep, so much so, that having heard the muffled sounds of someone stirring, all he did was pull the sofa's cushion over his head before again going back to sleep.

Although his face is not particularly oozing a healthy flush, there was however no sign of the fatigue expected from his past night's drinking.

So if you took his appearance from the night prior into account, his recovery was rather amazing.

In the meantime, Xiao Ning felt as though his head was about to explode, as there were no hotels any where near that area for several miles, and the landscaping of the area was rather well-done, since it was all main roads.

N/A

"I used your bathroom for a bit, by the way, but why does your house have so many disposable items" Shan Haiming tilted his head, interrupted Xiao Ning's focused stare.

He clearly was not interested in hearing the other man's answer so he continued by adding, "Plus, this is your suit I'm wearing, so I'll buy you back a similar one as compensation."

And Shan Haiming, who only let out a frown to show he was just mildly disturbed, after grinding his jaw a bit, simply found a comfortable spot for himself between Xiao Ning's shoulders before again falling back asleep.

Within living things, the biological clock they possessed was a quite powerful thing, you see, as Xiao Ning had awakened that following morning at eight on the dot.

For a second, he could not make out the situation, and the front door he was facing suddenly opened, giving him a start that was enough to wash his drowsiness away.

Xiao Ning was somewhat infuriated; however after all those years of having his temperament being "trained" by Lu Yan, the anger within him did not surface, as he stuffed it back down himself.

In the meantime, Xiao Ning felt as though his head was about to explode, as there were no hotels any where near that area for several miles, and the landscaping of the area was rather well-done, since it was all main roads.

This sleep he fell into then was rather deep, so much so, that having heard the muffled sounds of someone stirring, all he did was pull the sofa's cushion over his head before again going back to sleep.

The person who came in and did so was wearing sportswear, while carrying a plastic bag, showing signs of freshness which was similar to the moisture of the morning dew, "You're up"

Baili, who had also drank himself into a stupor, was tapping Shan Haiming's shoulder, wanting to ask him something, but the other man simply flung off his advances.

Shan Haiming instead just closed his eyes, repulsion clear on his face melded with the mischievous look of a person holding no interest in talking with anyone, as he leant his body against Xiao Ning.

Having made it to this point, Xiao Ning never intended for Shan Haiming to sleep on the sofa.

The man was Wang Hua's new boss, after all, so showing this bit of favour was also doable by Xiao Ning.

Shan Haiming only let out a groan, then no longer responded.

Xiao Ning just then remembered all those western liquor he had drank straight, a really bad feeling then coming over over.

So when they had made it to the elevator, he gave Wang Hua a call.

Xiao Ning's eyes slightly widened, with him barely managing a response, "Mr.

Shan"

As the secondary master of the house, Xiao Ning himself took the initiative to do these things as well.

He first went to tidy himself up, then returned to take the two cans of soup into the kitchen.

There was nothing in the fridge there, but the utensils ans cookware in the kitchen were all fully stocked, so Xiao Ning poured the congee into too bowls, then placed them into the microwave fore a couple minutes.

The cold wind of the night air hummed, and Xiao Ning noticed Shan Haiming had finally finished vomiting.

His face was now completely white, his body hanging weakly, with him completely unresponsive.

This was how Xiao ning was able to pull out Shan Haiming's phone to see if he could contact one of the man's family members or friends.

Only to find out after clicking on the screen that a password was required.

Releasing a long sigh, Xiao Ning, after a silent grumble, carefully leaned his body while supporting Shan Haiming to allow the two of them to stand up.

That apartment had two bedrooms, and Xiao Ning only ever stayed in the one for guests.

The master bedroom was reserved for Lu Yan, even if he only ever went there less than a couple of times for the year.

Plus, in that master bedroom there was none of Lu Yan's personal belongings, and when he was there, Xiao Ning never stepped foot in it.

Shan Haiming walked over and gave him the keys, taking a seat right beside him before moving to put the stuff in his other hand on the table, "Don't leave your keys lying about."

When that guy offload's his problems, he's quite thorough, isn't he But Xiao Ning wasn't really mad at Wang Hua, after all, the other man's wife was in the hospital giving birth, and he still had to deal with that situation.

So he wasn't wrong for him to do that.

This sleep he fell into then was rather deep, so much so, that having heard the muffled sounds of someone stirring, all he did was pull the sofa's cushion over his head before again going back to sleep.

Xiao Ning looked at the keys in the other man's hands, reaching out to take it before tucking them back into his pocket.

Only just then did he notice Shan Haiming's hair was a bit damp, and on top of the image of the light grey tracksuit he was wearing, were traces of that "Shan-shao" from the private room the night before.

But the image now shown in front of Xiao Ning's eyes to the contrary seemed to resemble that of a little brother next door.

In the meantime, Xiao Ning felt as though his head was about to explode, as there were no hotels any where near that area for several miles, and the landscaping of the area was rather well-done, since it was all main roads.

For a second, he could not make out the situation, and the front door he was facing suddenly opened, giving him a start that was enough to wash his drowsiness away.

Their measurements were more or less the same, and Shan Haiming didn't look bad at all wearing Xiao Ning's tracksuit.

In fact, he looked a lot better in it than Xiao Ning ever did.

But Xiao Ning wasn't all too comfortable with Shan Haiming's taking it without asking him first, however he just avoided the topic, "Mr Shan, you drank a lot last night, so do you feel better now"

While being pressed below the other man, Xiao Ning honestly just wanted to stay lying there until morning.

This sleep he fell into then was rather deep, so much so, that having heard the muffled sounds of someone stirring, all he did was pull the sofa's cushion over his head before again going back to sleep.

However, Xiao Ning was nevertheless left hung out to dry, while someone else was being carried in his arms.

Now standing in the doorway wearing a dumbfounded expression, Xiao Ning asked, "Mr.

Shan Mr.

Shan, where do you live need to take you home."

This sleep he fell into then was rather deep, so much so, that having heard the muffled sounds of someone stirring, all he did was pull the sofa's cushion over his head before again going back to sleep.

Xiao Ning just turned his attention to Shan Haiming, who had his brows now tightly knitted, not knowing if the act was due to the other man having a headache on account of his drinking, or whether it was because he had some other unsolved troubles weighing on his mind.

"I'm fine.

After a shower and a jog I'm feeling a lot better." Shan Haiming's brows the drew into a light knit, his inner thoughts unknown.

"And just call me Haiming from now on.

Wasn't it easier to call me that last night"

Carried Home

Xiao Ning then regained his senses: "..."

The person who came in and did so was wearing sportswear, while carrying a plastic bag, showing signs of freshness which was similar to the moisture of the morning dew, "You're up"

Shan Haiming only let out a groan, then no longer responded.

Xiao Ning just then remembered all those western liquor he had drank straight, a really bad feeling then coming over over.

So when they had made it to the elevator, he gave Wang Hua a call.

Xiao Ning: "..."

Even though the words stated in his sentence leaned towards ones of mockery, Shan Haiming's tone when he said them, to the contrast, was very light hearted, seeming as though it was just a casual mention which made Xiao Ning not know what he really meant.

Looking down at his watch to check the time, he knew since it was the weekend, Lu Yan would never be up before eleven, and would just have himself brunch.

So he figured even a delay of a couple hours would be fine.

Xiao Ning took out the congee and left the kitchen, to see Shan Haiming was already seated at the table eating a few biscuits.

As soon as the porridge was placed in front of him, he began to gulp it all down at a speed which was rather quick.

"Thanks for last night, by the way.

It was a good thing that Wang Hua managed to have found someone reliable.

Shan Haiming did not go into any details beyond this, and Xiao Ning would naturally not ask him for more, saying, "It was nothing, besides, it wasn't that troublesome."

That infamous line said it right: ** happens right when no one expects it to.

Shan Haiming nodded absentmindedly upon hearing this, while rummaging through the bag on the table and pulling out some biscuits and cans of Eight Treasures Congee, "I couldn't find any places selling breakfast here, there was only a supermarket, so we'll have to make do with eating these."

Having made it to this point, Xiao Ning never intended for Shan Haiming to sleep on the sofa.

The man was Wang Hua's new boss, after all, so showing this bit of favour was also doable by Xiao Ning.

But such matters was that man's own business, and Xiao Ning had his own issues to take care of, so where would he find the energy to be gossiping about that.

Heshu Zhou was the first to be stunned, his gaze moving to examine Shan Haiming's face before moving to smack his own forehead, saying, "Yeah yeah yeah.

Jeez, I'm so thoughtless."

That guy being considerate to this degree took Xiao Ning by surprise.

So far he got the feeling that despite Shan Haiming's attitude that was imbued with him having his own way, it seemed as though he was not like all the other rich guys.

When he finally realised the situation around him again, the show was at an end, and only a few people were left standing.

What's more, since the target of their concentrated firepower was Shan Haiming, he was of course not spared.

Enough to coax a smile from Xiao Ning when he looked up and saw the lyrics, while he still fiddled around with his phone.

Looking down at his watch to check the time, he knew since it was the weekend, Lu Yan would never be up before eleven, and would just have himself brunch.

Xiao Ning took out the congee and left the kitchen, to see Shan Haiming was already seated at the table eating a few biscuits.

As soon as the porridge was placed in front of him, he began to gulp it all down at a speed which was rather quick.

To this question, a guy who had just introduced himself as Heshu Zhou, let out a hearty laugh before replying, "Xiao-shao, don't you see what time it is We can still keep going some more."

"Sounds good." Shan Haiming threw the can back, "You should go reheat them, then."

Xiao Ning responded after, saying, "Let's reheat the congee before we eat it, you drank a good bit yesterday, so it's better if you ate warm congee."

Shan Haiming nodded absentmindedly upon hearing this, while rummaging through the bag on the table and pulling out some biscuits and cans of Eight Treasures Congee, "I couldn't find any places selling breakfast here, there was only a supermarket, so we'll have to make do with eating these."

Xiao Ning: "..."

Heshu Zhou was the first to be stunned, his gaze moving to examine Shan Haiming's face before moving to smack his own forehead, saying, "Yeah yeah yeah.

Jeez, I'm so thoughtless."

Since there was nothing he could do about that, Xiao Ning put on a brave face and gave the others a nod, an act which could be considered a greeting.

He then half supported, half dragged, Shan Haiming out of the private room.

"Sounds good." Shan Haiming threw the can back, "You should go reheat them, then."

"I'm fine.

After a shower and a jog I'm feeling a lot better." Shan Haiming's brows the drew into a light knit, his inner thoughts unknown.

"Do you like men"

What time it was It was almost midnight.

Shan Haiming was right about one thing he said earlier, Xiao Ning did have a regular work and sleep schedule.

Meaning, he had to go to bed before eleven in order for him to wake up before eight o'clock sharp the next morning, a behaviour that could be regarded as that of a role-model amongst his peers.

Thus after a quick washing up, Xiao Ning's entire form then weakly collapsed onto the sofa, not long having passed until he fell fast asleep.

Looks as if I'm gong to have to carry out this good deed of the day all the way to the end. Xiao Ning found himself thinking. It's just a way to accumulate good virtue.

It's just making a new friend like Wang Hua had said.

Within living things, the biological clock they possessed was a quite powerful thing, you see, as Xiao Ning had awakened that following morning at eight on the dot.

For a second, he could not make out the situation, and the front door he was facing suddenly opened, giving him a start that was enough to wash his drowsiness away.

Xiao Ning felt that in this current moment, him not saying anything more would be difficult to be explained away.

So after reaching out his hand to support the man against him, he said, "It looks like you're all spent.

Are you guys planning on leaving as well"
