CHAPTER 02 DESTINY?

  • The party went deeper on that night and the people did lessen. The lights no longer emits colorful lights and turned into darkish and swaying ones, even the music was sweet and soft. Some settled in some corners and some already went home contentedly and sober.
  • But in a place less popular in the area, two man were wildly gasping and feeling each other. One was sitting while one was above him.
  • They were both sucking each other's mouth and almost out of breath, Lin broke free but Ruoyi, who found the guy's lips so sweet and soft, grunted as he pulled Lin again. The scent Lin was giving off was so sweet and intense he can't help it.
  • "I'm... I'm out of breath." Lin managed to broke again
  • "Ain't you hungry much?" Lin uttered against his lips with his dishevelled clothes caused by Ruoyi's unsettling hand roaming around his body.
  • Ruoyi bit his lips and cannot longer hold on, harshly pulled Lin again "Let's go to my place." he whispered on his ears that made the other flinched from added pleasure.
  • "Mm.... do you want to declare your unfaithfulness?" the man mumbled and continually replied his kisses.
  • Ruoyi traveled toward his neck and bit a part of it.
  • "Ah!" Lin exclaimed but before he can even complain. Ruoyi stood up and took his arm. He was serious and in a bit of hurry.
  • "Such eagerness." Lin said.
  • Ruoyi took him inside the car and rode off to his place.
  • This place was his own house, where he built for himself and a place he call his own. He either comes here for leisure or time wasting, just moments where he doesn't want to see Jiangli's face.
  • When they both reached the place, they resumed their kisses after getting off from the car, kissing and biting while traveling towards the master's bedroom
  • Lin and Ruoyi didn't said anything when they were about to start because they were both tense and nervous.
  • After an hour of playing and loosing, Ruoyi raised Lin's wet waist roughly.
  • "W-Wait!" he called
  • "D-Do it gently. It's... my first." He managed to say on his breath.
  • Ruoyi raised a brow "Your first?"
  • Lin nodded "Don't get carried away on the process or else I can no longer stand tomorrow." he said humorously but deep down, he's quite nervous himself.
  • Ruoyi was stunned, this man haven't done this things of sort and was his first time but he is willing to give it to him?
  • Ruoyi melted and caressed the man's reddish cheeks, "I'll try." and smiled, his scent and body and expressions were driving him crazy after all.
  • The night went on with the continuous shaking of the bed and loud noises and pleading.
  • ......
  • The sun was high up when Ruoyi woke up.
  • Something was sore below but it's not painful as what Lin had experienced.
  • He glanced beside him and there he was, the artist who he really admired. Curled and sleeping soundly.
  • He felt an urge to kiss him because the sweet scent his giving off still lingers on him.
  • He leaned and kissed the man's head.
  • Then he heard Lin groan, still eyes closed.
  • "Hey... are you awake?"
  • "W... Water.." Lin throat was rough and dry but managed to speak the word.
  • Ruoyi immediately took some clothes and ran off to take some water.
  • "Here..."
  • Lin opened his eyes and moved his waist to sit but immediately groaned in pain.
  • "Hurts... it hurts."
  • Ruoyi was struck in guilt. "Don't move too much." he said
  • He gently guided Lin to properly sit in accordance to his comfortability and placed a pillow behind him. Lin then slowly drank the water at his great effort.
  • "Are you okay?" Ruoyi asked
  • "Better."
  • Ruoyi bit his lip, Lin's eyes was swollen from crying and pleading last night even his lips were swollen and red, his body was full of reddish and purplish marks. He's really sorry.
  • "I-I'm sorry, was I hard last night?" Ruoyi asked in his guilty tone.
  • Lin stared back and smiled, he reached an arm to pull Ruoyi and kissed him softly.
  • Ruoyi replied back with more gentle kisses.
  • "That was memorable." Lin leaned on his bosom.
  • "Really?" he didn't expected this answer
  • "But I still can't believe you're a virgin all this time. I mean you're beautiful... and attractive and.... beautiful." Ruoyi mindlessly said as he roamed his hand to the naked body of Lin, not inviting but to give tingles that can sooth him.
  • Lin's head nuzzles to the man's chest as a response to the tingles. "I wanted to fully give myself to the person I had always loved."
  • Ruoyi kissed his head, he didn't replied.
  • He knew he was married.
  • "I started liking you from the moment you appreciated my first artwork that I posted online. You were the only one who noticed it." Lin continued
  • Rouyi reminisced and laughed "Ah yes I remember that painting. It had a minimalistic theme that's why people didn't dig much to it but I liked it. I don't know but I liked it, like it was something I used to love that came back to me, that feeling... isn't it weird?"
  • "Yeah.... too weird." but Lin was grinning as he said this "Maybe there's something that you really lost for a long time."
  • "Well your arts gives off this vibe everytime and they were really different from any other---hey." Ruoyi stopped his hand on the nape of Lin.
  • He was shocked to the core.
  • "What is it?" Lin slowly faced him.
  • "Is that my mark on your nape?" Ruoyi was horrified.
  • Lin immediately touched his nape. His skin was marked by teeth, it was a mark deeper among the marks he had in his body.
  • It was a territorial mark that an alpha can give.
  • "I can't believe this."
  • Then it was that time that Ruoyi had only realized that Lin was an omega, the scent and the sweetness that he exhorts. He didn't thought much of it because he was excited and his surging feeling to eat him clouded his mind.
  • Also, he really can't recall how he managed to give him the mark.
  • He's dead. Jiangli was an Alpha, and he was a Zeta.
  • A Zeta was partly Alpha and partly Omega, in short he can also give territorial mark. And because he's part omega, once he's also marked, he'll be an omega for that person forever but he and Jiangli didn't performed anything since their marriage, Jiangli didn't gave him a mark, he guessed that he had already given it to someone or maybe he doesn't want to be bonded.
  • Once you marked your mate, you imprint your possession that he is all yours and no other people can take him.
  • And once you mark him, he will be your mate forever unless you unknot the bond, people are not fond of the idea of 'unknoting' aside from the fact that it is a complete break up between mates, it is also a painful process.
  • "You gave me a mark?" Lin asked.
  • "I-I don't know. I can't remember..." Ruoyi was confused as he tried to remember.
  • But Lin only giggled and hugged him "Then this could be fate? Destiny? They did work for us."
  • Ruoyi blinked. Then is this real? His mother once told them about the truth of this cycle, they says that it was destiny working for all the pairing. Once you met your fated pair, it is unbreakable.
  • Majority believes it was just a bit of beautiful concept for the new system and Ruoyi didn't thought about it.
  • However, he can't help but to smile.
  • He was not fond of these things but it isn't coincidence, he liked and adored this artist and unknowingly, he liked him back. And they met in an unexpected way and committed a bond. Isn't it like destined to happen without them acting?
  • He smiled and hugged him back. Once two mate bonded, affections and feelings are mutual. Maybe it was all real.
  • But a problem was still existing.
  • "But Lin. I'm married."
  • Lin faced him and cupped his cheeks "You both don't love each other right? And you won't be able to give me a mark if he already marked you but he didn't. He's not your mate. I am."
  • Ruoyi stared at him, pondering of what he just said.
  • "My mate." Ruoyi smiled he liked the thought that he had found his true mate.
  • "My mate!" He exclaimed and kissed Lin.
  • They both cuddled up and smiled sincerely on their hearts content.
  • Lin savored the moment when he suddenly remembered something, "Oh right! I remembered, I'll be having a grand exhibit three months from now." Lin exclaimed
  • "Yes, yes I know." Ruoyi responded
  • "Such an avid fan. I was scheduled today to meet the gallery director."
  • Ruoyi glanced at the terrace "It was already noon. When will be the meeting?"
  • "At 3."
  • "Oh dear let's get you up."
  • .....
  • "Here we are." Ruoyi stated as he parked the car at the Xinyi Gallery, one of the top hosting venue on the country.
  • "Good luck."
  • Lin pulled him to have a kiss "When we'll be meeting again?"
  • Ruoyi bit Lin's lower lips "Later."
  • Lin smiled widely "Then, later." He kissed him once again and got off.
  • They both gave their addresses and contacts. Ruoyi told Lin to stay whenever he wants in his house but as for now, Lin will stay at his condominium because he haven't unpacked yet.
  • Ruoyi drove back home where he and Jiangli reside. As a married couple they live in one roof but they had separate rooms which was in Ruoyi's comfort.
  • "Who's that Lin?" Lin's acting manager asked as he saw Lin got off from a very expensive branded car.
  • Lin just smiled as he took the document from him.
  • "By the way where did you go off to last night? Xian called me that he can't reach you and couldn't find you at the art party." he inquired the young artist as they strode off the empty white gallery
  • They stopped at a large canvas which contains his latest painting, he took off the white fabric covering it.
  • "I went to retrieve something I lost."
  • He said this meaningfully as he travels his finger on a face of a man he painted on the canvas. The man doesn't have a detailed face but surely it resembles someone.
