"A lot of people have said that." Smith still maintained that smile, "But in the end, they all became perverts like me."

Ye Aotian knew that once she was caught by Smith, she might never get back what she wanted. She took a step back, and bumped into one of the strong men. Before she could escape, her shoulders were grasped by a pair of sturdy hands.

Smith said: "Stop resisting, because it's useless for you to resist."

At this moment, he realized that the eyes of the six people on the opposite side were not right. It seemed as if they were looking past him at someone. When Smith turned to look, he noticed a guy standing behind him wearing black tights. Both exchanged glances through the glasses.

Smith said with a forced smile, "Dude, are you kidding me? Are you pretending to be the Gentle Killer?"

The man said in a raspy voice, "Is it Smith? I was hired to assassinate you by someone." He raised his hand holding a peculiarly shaped knife in it.

There was fear and panic on Smith's face, "No... You can't do this, I also have money... You guys hurry up and save..."

Blood spurted out from Smith's neck, while Tao Ran raised his head and indifferently glanced at the five strong men looking at the collapsed Smith in despair.

The boss was dead, what would they still do here? The five brawny men fled. Ye Aotian looked at Tao Ran who had already turned around and left.

"Wait!" Ye Aotian chased out.

Tao Ran slowed down without saying anything.

Unknowingly, Ye Aotian was led into an alley by Tao Ran while the two were sprinting after one another. Tao Ran stood in the alley and confronted Ye Aotian: "Why are you chasing me?"

Ye Aotian panted and said, "I want to ask you to do something, not for you to kill, but I want you to..."

Tao Ran turned to look at her, "Where's the money?"

Ye Aotian was silent for a while, and said, "If you succeed in this, I will write you a blank check."

"I never do free labor."

Tao Ran was about to leave. Ye Aotian quickly stepped forward and grabbed Tao Ran's arm, "You know who I am, don't pretend that you don't know me. You know about me, right? I was framed. I will become wealthy if you assist me in learning the truth, and I won't let you suffer."

Tao Ran didn't bother to look at Ye Aotian's expression, he broke away from Ye Aotian's grasp then went over the wall and left.

After Tao Ran went, Ye Aotian stood blankly in the alley, unsure of what to do. Reality battered her into a stone that refused to cry. Before making a phone call, she crouched on the ground for a long time without a drop of tear in her eyes.

After running a distance, Tao Ran received a call from Ye Aotian. He removed his mask and greeted her in his natural voice, "Hello."

Ye Aotian said, "Sir, it's me."

"Oh, did it go well today?"

"It was not very smooth." Ye Aotian said: "Sir, can you come and pick me up?"

"Of course, where are you?"

...

Tao Ran hung up the phone, then took off his tights, then found his car and drove to pick up Ye Aotian. Ye Aotian was standing on the side of the road, her shadow was very short in the noon sun. Tao Ran drove by her side, and he took a special look. Ye Aotian's face was calm, and her eyes were not swollen at all, indicating that she didn't cry or get angry after he left.

Tao Ran lowered the car window and urged her, "Come up."

Ye Aotian sat in the rear seat. Tao Ran could only see her eyes in the mirror, the two did not speak for a while.

Ye Aotian eventually took the initiative and stated, "You were right."

Tao Ran: "What?"

"My colleague was a blatant liar. She tricked me into an interview today, and they had installed a pinhole camera in the fitting room. Even those who are familiar with you will lie to you, let alone those who are unfamiliar. I won't fall for it again."

Ye Aotian's current state was very wrong, Tao Ran dared not continue to stimulate her, so he said: "Then are you okay? Do you need my help?"

"I'm already grateful that you came to pick me up." Ye Aotian paused and said, "Sir, it's my good fortune to have met you."

Tao Ran twitched the corners of his mouth and did not speak. After the two returned, Ye Aotian started cleaning today. She worked very seriously, without any previous irritation or reluctance.

Tao Ran felt that the atmosphere was a bit weird, so he walked towards the kitchen: "Then you let me cook tonight."

"Teach me how to cook", Ye Aotian said as she put away the cleaning supplies and followed Tao Ran into the kitchen.

Tao Ran was taking a few eggs out of the refrigerator. When Tao Ran heard this, he was a little taken aback and asked, "Are you sure?"

"I'm sure, this is my job in the first place. Although I don't know it, I can learn it." Ye Aotian stood beside Tao Ran seriously.

"Okay." Tao Ran muttered in his heart, If you learn then I can save some effort. He then asked, "What dish do you wish to learn?"

"I'll learn whatever you make, a little bit a day, sooner or later I can learn it all."

Tao Ran washed and sliced the meat while saying, "Then the first dish you are going to learn is braised pork. Do you like braised pork?"

Heat is the most crucial component in braised pork. The meat cannot be cooked properly or have a pleasant flavor if the heat is insufficient. If the heat is too high, it will be overdone and will not taste well. Ye Aotian took the lessons extremely seriously. She looked at Tao Ran's side face, which was reflected by the firelight, and asked, "Why do you know how to cook Republican dishes?"

Tao Ran said without blushing: "Because I once lived in the Republic for a long time, I like the food there, so I specially studied it."

Ye Aotian nodded and said, "The dishes are very rich tonight."

Tao Ran: "Well, yes."

"How about a drink together." Ye Aotian said, "Is there any wine at home?"

"Yes."

Tao Ran took out a bottle of red wine from the cabinet. Ye Aotian is a person who knows goods. She took the wine and looked at it and said, "Good wine, why don't I see you drink this good wine?"

"To be honest, I don't particularly enjoy drinking. If I didn't have pals around me, I wouldn't drink at all," Tao Ran stated.

Ye Aotian smiled and said, "So you take me as a friend?"

Tao Ran pursed his lips and smiled, "I wonder if you consider me a friend?"

Ye Aotian laughed, "If you are willing to give me your room, I will treat you as a friend."

In the evening, the table was cooked together by the two of them. Ye Aotian frequently poured wine to Tao Ran while smiling. This was the most she had ever smiled since arriving at Tao Ran's house.

By the time the sunset shone in through the window in the evening, Ye Aotian was completely drunk and Tao Ran was on the phone with the informant.

"Didn't you say you were going to take some time off, I heard you made another order today?"

"Yes, I made it casually." Tao Ran said, "I will notify you when I officially return."

Ye Aotian was lying on the table drinking, Tao Ran walked over and took the quilt from her hand, and said softly, "Stop drinking, I'll take you to sleep."

After he said that, he helped Ye Aotian in moving to the sofa. Unconsciously, Ye Aotian put both of her hands on Tao Ran's shoulders. The moment Tao Ran seated her on the sofa, she suddenly opened her eyes and asked, "Am I very useless?"

Tao Ran grabbed her hand and remarked, "You are not worthless, just look at how clean the house is after you've cleaned it."

"I know they have never accepted me. If it wasn't for my father, they would not have listened to me at all." Ye Aotian wrapped her arms around Tao Ran's neck and said, "Now that dad is dead, they immediately joined forces to drive me away."

"Be good." Tao Ran lightly patted her on the back, "Let go of me, you need a good rest."

At this moment, Tao Ran was leaning over Ye Aotian and the distance between them was very close. Tao Ran could clearly feel Ye Aotian's breath spraying on his face. Ye Aotian was still holding on Tao Ran's neck. She opened her hazy eyes and stared in perplexity at Tao Ran's face, who was standing nearby.

Then she kissed it.

When Ye Aotian gave Tao Ran a kiss, the wine's aroma left a sour aftertaste in his mouth. He reached out to shove Ye Aotian, who stared at him and said, "You don't want this?"

Tao Ran: "You're drunk."

"I've never been this sober before. Ye Aotian pressed and kissed him again. The golden sunset poured in from the balcony and sprinkled on the two of them as they breathed each other. The only sound in the living room was of the two kissing.

Ye Aotian reached out to undo Tao Ran's button, Tao Ran clutched her hand, "You are drunk."

Ye Aotian: "The only way to respect a woman at this moment is to possess her fiercely."

Tao Ran looked at Ye Aotian who was in a mess underneath him. He reached out and caressed Ye Aotian's hair and said, "As a gentleman, I think I should get off you now and leave you alone in the living room."

"I hate gentlemen." Ye Aotian said while kissing Tao Ran's cheek: "I didn't live for myself in the first 20 years or so, but I'm going to live for myself for once now."

Tao Ran felt that thing of his being grabbed by Ye Aotian, he let out a bitter laugh and said, "This kind of thing should only be initiated by men, if you really want to, then let's go to the room."

Ye Aotian chuckled softly, "I want it to be here."

"Just be here......"

Tao Ran was not pretentious either. After he made up his mind, he took the initiative. Ye Aotian was lying hot under Tao Ran. It was the first time for Tao Ran's body to do this kind of thing, he felt very excited, and accidentally tossed a little long. The two people who had been tired and drunk for a long time embraced each other and fell asleep. At this time, it was already completely dark, and only the lights shrouded the city.
