Deep in the Act Translator: Kotoni Editor: Isalee First Published on Chaleuria — Chapter 12.2 Fang Chi frowned a little at his words, but he soon recovered his appearance of neutral composure. A professional therapist must never allow such expressions to be seen by his or her patients. “How can you be sure that you’re a woman in your dreams?” “My feet hurt. Because I was in heels.” All color had drained from Gao Zhun’s face. He averted his head, his face white as a sheet, unable to look at Fang Chi. “And there’s my voice. And…” Gao Zhun gritted his teeth. Fang Chi thought of something and ventured a wild guess, “Was there someone else in your dreams?” Staring at him in shock, Gao Zhun blushed. A deep crimson soon suffused his cheeks. “Who was it? Was it someone real?” Fang Chi asked, shifting his chair closer to give Gao Zhun a greater sense of security by reducing the physical distance between them. Gao Zhun’s face paled again. Watching as the blood drained bit by bit from the corner of Gao Zhun’s lips, Fang Chi’s heart began to ache. He did not want to see the other man suffer anymore. “Was it… me?” Gao Zhun clamped a hand over his own mouth. His eyes widened in absolute terror and shame, like a frantic, pathetic creature in the throes of its...Read More
Deep in the Act Translator: Kotoni Editor: Isalee First Published on Chaleuria — Chapter 12.1 Grabbing Gao Zhun’s wounded hand, Fang Chi asked in a tone filled with displeasure, “So, you’re saying that you did this to yourself?” The large abrasion on the knuckles of Gao Zhun’s right hand had begun to bruise, and a livid purple showed through the reddened flesh. “I broke the mirror in the toilet at work.” “There is a technical term in psychology known as ‘psychological reversal’,” Fang Chi began to say, the harshness of his glare reflecting the genuineness and extent of his rage. “Others may hurt you, but you inflict even more harm upon yourself in the worst ways possible.” Gao Zhun dropped his head and replied cautiously, “I won’t do it again.” “Tell me about this colleague of yours.” Fang Chi released Gao Zhun’s hand and sat back in his chair. Seeming somewhat reluctant to talk about this particular person, Gao Zhun’s response was rather vague, “He’s a subordinate, not a colleague. Just another kid.” Fang Chi lifted an eyebrow. “What’s he like?” “He specializes in sculpture, and is very talented. But his father – who is my business partner – doesn’t want him to become a full-time artist. He wants his son to take over the reins from him in the future, so the kid has begun shadowing me recently.” All of...Read More
Deep in the Act Translator: Kotoni Editor: Isalee First Published on Chaleuria — Chapter 11.2 (NSFW) Chen Hsin and Zhang Zhun were still entwined in bed. Cries of pleasure continued to pour freely from his headphones. The camera and mics stood untouched; no one had moved since he left the room – no one dared to. As the director, Chen Cheng-Sen knew he had to do something about the situation. Just as he was about to give everyone a good scolding, however, Chen Hsin snapped his head around and bellowed, “Out! All of you! Get out now!” All eyes turned towards Chen Cheng-Sen. His eyes widened as he forced himself to rein in his emotions and wave everyone out of the room. After walking in a couple of circles to recover from Chen Hsin’s figurative slap to his face, he finally came back at the other man with a response: “Hold your horses, bro. There’s more to come!” True to his words, Chen Cheng-Sen was already waiting with a fortified dining table and a predatory camera when Chen Hsin and Zhang Zhun came out with towels around their waists. Pointing to the clean table-top, he ordered, “Zhang Zhun, get up there.” Chen Hsin felt his last shred of patience snap at the director’s words. “You’re going too far, whats-your-face!”1 No one had ever dared to speak to the director with such...Read More
Deep in the Act Translator: Kotoni Editor: Isalee First Published on Chaleuria — Chapter 11.1 (NSFW) They were back at the office building, in one of the ten units that had been booked for the filming. It was known as the Blue Room for the color of its walls, and it served as the set for Fang Chi’s home. Currently, Chen Cheng-Sen and Chen Hsin were locked in a heated discussion about the plot, while Zhang Zhun waited at a distance. Seated on a couch in a corner, he listened again and again to the voice message Xie Danyi had left for him. “Hi… or rather, bye.” After a brief pause, she continued, “I guess I’ll get going now. I shouldn’t have affected your work… I wish you hadn’t signed on for this project. I regret it now.” With a catch in her voice, she said, “I’ll be waiting for you in Guangzhou. I love you.” Zhang Zhun replayed the last part of her message one more time – “I love you” – and his hands tightened around his phone till they began to ache from the strain. From the other part of the room, Chen Cheng-Sen yelled, “Stop playing with your phone and get to work!” Zhang Zhun stood up at the sound of the director’s orders, switched off his phone, and tossed it to the side. He was dressed...Read More
Deep in the Act Translator: Kotoni Editor: Isalee First Published on Chaleuria — Chapter 10.2 Gao Zhun did not move. Fang Chi did not force him either; he simply began sliding his hands down the luxurious fabric of Gao Zhun’s trousers. After cupping Gao Zhun’s knees for a moment, his hands roamed over Gao Zhun’s calves and circled his ankles. They were about to retrace their paths and make their way up those legs again when Gao Zhun cracked. He had tried his best to cooperate with Fang Chi’s method, but the feeling of those hands moving upwards was too much for him to bear. He grabbed Fang Chi’s hands and stopped them from going any further as he pleaded, “No… no more…” “Why are you shaking?” Fang Chi asked. “I don’t know.” “You’re lying.” “I’m not! I really don’t know why!” Gao Zhun started pushing and shoving at Fang Chi. Despite his initial surprise at Gao Zhun’s reaction, Fang Chi soon recognized this as a form of opportunity and began to make a show of fighting back. Yet, although Fang Chi used very little force, Gao Zhun’s reactions were violent and exaggerated. Like a fish lifted out of water in a net, Gao Zhun struggled blindly and desperately in Fang Chi’s arms. Scratches appeared on Fang Chi’s brow, and punches landed squarely on his face, but he hung on to...Read More
