The Escort – Chapter 1

It's not the first time Shao Mingwei met Min Yu.

 

As a successful alumnus and a well-known local businessman, Min Yu had once visited their university to give a speech, and Shao Mingwei happened to be the president of the student council that was given the task to receive Min Yu as a student representative.
And if he knew that he would coincidentally meet Min Yu inside the box, Shao Mingwei would never go in, even if the other party probably did not remember him.

 

This is his eighth day being a bar escort at the “Nights”.
When sister Zhang saw Q University written on his resume, she suspiciously glanced at him, but a while later, she gave him a gentle smile.
“Why are you doing this?” she asked, leaning slightly closer to Shao Mingwie's body and the woman's strong perfume wafted around him.

 

Shao Mingwei tried his best to control the urge to avoid, and squeezed the three words from his throat, “lack of money.”

 

Sister Zhang lowered her head again and browsed at Shao Mingwei's splendid resume all the way through the end, which had the list of his numerous academic awards, then glanced at him again.
Seeing the discomfort he tried to suppress, she somewhat said with contempt, “these are not as valuable as your face and body.”

 

Shao Mingwei's face turned dark red unconsciously, as if being poked at the center of his worries.
He knew that he had long legs and was fairly tall.
Although he doesn't really exercise, his numerous part-time jobs keep him in good shape.
He also vaguely knows that his face is somehow above average and it could be said that it is more than enough to do “work” at Nights, but he also thought that having a background from a prestigious school will give him the higher chance of getting hired.

 

He really needs money right now.

 

Sister Zhang didn't wait for him to answer, and muttered to herself, “Nowadays, customers give importance to appearances and intelligence.
If it is like this, then I'm willing to hire an outstanding university student.”

 

Shao Mingwei didn't know what to reply, so he stayed silent.
It was good that she seems to be willing to hire him.
In fact, his appearance doesn't only look attractive but also quick-witted, with the correct proportion of his three-dimensional facial features, his sword-like brows, bright eyes, and appealing mold of his chin was particularly pleasing to the eyes.
Sister Zhang glanced at him once again and smiled.
“Although our bar is not comparable to others, we're earning a lot.
And if you're short of money, you only need to work hard.”

 

On the first floor of the Nights, although there were a lot of customers, there were no boxes but only lounges and bars.
Shao Mingwei's working place is in the box area which is on the second and third floor.
Those who occupied the box had an exclusive membership.

 

Every time he changes clothes and comes out from the staff lounge, he always enters the brightly lit but ambiguous corridor.
Under his feet was the soft carpet embroidered with intricate patterns, exuding an extravagant atmosphere that even ran up to the corners of the hall.
Standing alone in the corridor, he felt a tang of discomfort and uneasiness that almost made him want to just turn back and leave.

 

Fortunately, the guests that he received were all females and most of them had a reserved personality.
Seeing that he's handsome and tall, they didn't want to embarrass him.
At most, they will touch his arm and thigh.
Some of them even asked him why an outstanding university student was willing to do this kind of job.
Shao Mingwei only smiled and replied briefly, “Lack of money.” It was probably because of his magnanimous personality or perhaps it was the somber and taciturn temperament that's shrouding his facial features, that the customers felt sorry for him and they would have the urge to somehow make up for his unfortunate life experiences and so they would order more drinks and will also give him more tips.
Some of his older customers didn't require him to do anything.
He would just sit and accompany them while drinking and sometimes listen to them chat.
He didn't talk much, so he looked reliable and so they would tip him more generously.
There were also customers that hinted of wanting to spend a night with him, but he pretended to not understand their motives.
He would vaguely brush them off and the other party would not force him then.
Sister Zhang told him at the beginning that the price where he would spend a night with a guest would be doubled.
He fell silent for a short while, but in the end, still shook his head and refused.

 

At seven o'clock in the evening, Shao Mingwei changed into a smooth white shirt and black trousers, which made him stand tall and straight.
Sister Zhang called him and a few other boys together and gave them brief instructions.
“Tonight you guys will go to Tanchunfang¹ each of you will accompany someone, take care of some bosses for me and when you come back, you'll receive a bonus.” She gave him a meaningful look.

 

Shao Mingwei was stunned.
He watched a few boys who were walking past him, chattering happily up to the third floor where the Tanchunfang box was.
On the other hand, he felt his feet deeply rooted to the ground.
Tanchunfang is one of the Nights' boxes with first-class specifications.
The number of guests who wanted to reserve the box is naturally a lot higher than the other boxes.
A single night at the Tanchunfang box is equivalent to several days on a regular box. 

 

Shao Mingwei hesitated to go in.
He still feels uncomfortable about his part-time job.
Even if he has a clear conscience and understands that one should not judge regardless of what level of occupation one has, but in the end, he still can't get around the hurdles in his heart, so he seldomly receives guest's without the companion of other escorts, as if it is his last resistance before he compromises.
Also, he doesn't know who spread the news, that a famous university student has arrived to work in the Nights, he just heard it from a colleague who expresses his envy and at the same time mockery at that university student.
Moreover, he's not the type who will take the initiative to make friends if the person clearly doesn't like him.
And for some guests who had shady intentions towards him, they were treated by him with coldness and so later on, they gradually minded their own business.

 

Shao Mingwei didn't take these things seriously, but he never thought about spending time with men.
He has seen colleagues who are popular among male guests.
They are all slender, weak, young and beautiful teenagers while he is tall and has broad shoulders, so he doesn't seem to be the type to be liked.

 

Sister Zhang seemed to see his suspicion and smiled mysteriously.
“There are also customers who are fond of your type…”

 

  “But…”

 

Sister Zhang interrupted him.
“Sister² specially asks you to go.
Wang Liang wanted to take your place, but I refused.
And if you don’t stay overnight, who are you going to accompany? If you serve our customers well, the benefits you will have will naturally be abundant.” She patted his face lightly and then she sighed.
“You want to earn more money, but you're not working hard.
How can there be such a good thing?”

 

Shao Mingwei subconsciously bit his cheeks, then he stayed silent.

 

“Okay, you can think about it again and just go when you've finally decided.
If it can't really be done, then let Wang Liang take your place.
This is your opportunity.
Don't regret it and blame me if you miss this chance.” After speaking, she turned around and walked towards the stairs.

 

Shao Mingwei rigidly stood in place, unable to think clearly, but the vibration of his mobile phone inside his pocket indicating that he received a text message brought him back to reality.
He took out his phone and unlocked it.
The text message he received was from Aunt Jiang and it said: Mr.
Shao, Ms.
Rong is already asleep.
Ms.
Rong's condition is good today.
She probably slept around ten o'clock.

 

Shao Mingwei rubbed the screen of the phone with his thumb and replied: Good, you can send her a little earlier to bed instead of staying up late next time.
Pay more attention to her state while she sleeps.
Anytime…

 

He deleted the word anytime and fixed his eyes on the phone screen before he slowly typed: You can call me after twelve o'clock.

 

He thought that at most, he would be able to leave after twelve.

 

Shao Mingwei squeezed his phone, then pressed the shutdown button and put it inside his trouser's pocket.
He fixed himself and walked towards Tanchunfang.

 

Other escorts were waiting for him impatiently at the door, and when they saw him coming, they'd group together in twos and threes, whispering to each other incomprehensible words.
Shao Mingwei paid them no mind and looked numbly at the delicate doorknob on the door of Tanchunfang.

 

Everyone could now go in.

 

Shao Mingwei stood in front of the door for a while, and Shao Rong's unending hospital bills appeared in his mind.
Then he lifted his hand and pushed the door open to Tanchunfang.
