Episode 2. Flowers for Rich.
Rich awoke ecstatically the following morning, three weeks later. He performed his daily skincare routine while grinning, in contrast to the days before. That day, he also applied makeup. Greg contacted him as he was finishing up his makeup to ask him to sign a very important paper that he had sent him. His kid informed him that although he did sound okay, he noticed that he appeared to be a little different. He then questioned his father about his condition, and Rich assured him that everything was fine. Greg claims that he has become like this ever since having company over. He informed him that their talk should end because his signal was poor and to end the call.
Tupe cooks breakfast, and he greets Rich as he goes downstairs. Before eating, he told Tupe not to call him “Sir” and to call him Rich instead. He praised his cooking skills and told him that he had cooked everything perfectly. He also says that he’s getting inspired to eat breakfast every day if it’s like that. Especially now that he has company. Tupe says that what he says is more inspiring. Rich praised him for how he perfectly cooked the hotdog. Not too oily, not too cooked. Just perfect for him. He also told him that his family had a restaurant business before. That’s why his father pressured him to become a chef because he wanted him to manage their restaurant. Tupe asks him if they still have business, and he answers that they went bankrupt and all their money went to the hospital bills of his father in the US, as their talk continues.
Tupe told him that he dreamed of having a mini-restaurant in the future so he asked him once more how he learned to cook. In a flashback to his interview, Tupe acknowledged that his parents are hard workers and that he was frequently left alone at home since they were gone all day at the market. Because of this, he started learning to cook when he was a young child. Rich laughed as he related his stories. Rich, on the other hand, expressed to him his pride in his son, Greg. He explained that because he works so hard, he is not familiar with any household duties. Additionally, he stated that he spoiled him because his wife wanted to take care of everything for them. But he always gives good guidance, and he is aware of his love for him.
Rich looked at him happily as he told him that when he came out to Greg, he accepted him easily because he was no different from him after all, and the only difference was that Greg was a pansexual. In another flashback of his interview with Tupe, the latter told him that they went bankrupt after his father died. And when his mother got sick, all their money was drained. So he decided to stop studying for a while. And he says that the moment he saw his son’s post about the job, he prayed to get the job. Rich asked him about his mother’s sickness, and the latter cried hard. Back to the present, he confessed to him that his wife died without telling her the truth because he was scared to tell her everything. Tupe says that at least he didn’t leave her even though he knew who he was, and he said that there’s no reason for him to leave her because he loves his wife so much.
Soon after Tupe received the job, Rich briefed him. Expect nothing less than the best from him because he must take care of all of his needs and will receive a salary that is three times that of a helper. After hearing everything, he hugged him. Flowers were placed in a vase by Tupe to begin his day. When Rich saw him, he informed him that his late wife also liked flowers. Rich unintentionally slipped while they were positioning the vase, landing on top of Tupe.
Episode 3. Beautiful Boy.
Rich awoke and reenergized. He danced while he made his bed and fixed it. He expected to see Tupe in the kitchen when he came out of his room. He decided to go to his room, where he discovered his sick helper lying on his bed. Due to Tupe’s fever, Rich had no choice but to take care of him. While he was feeding him, Tupe thanked his boss. He apologizes to him because he feels ashamed of what happened and feels that it is his responsibility to take care of him. That evening, Rich helped him get into his room, and they shared his bed.
When Rich noticed Tupe shaking from a fever, he cuddled him until they both fell asleep to soothe him down. Tupe awoke in Rich’s arms the following morning. He grinned at him when he woke up, and the other man claimed that he held him because he had chills the night before. Before getting out of bed, he said “Thanks,” but then both of them observed that Tupe’s manhood had become hard. He told him what had transpired earlier as they were enjoying some snacks. He admitted that he had been that way ever since adolescence. Rich told him that, while all men were like that, he was exceptional and that it was scandalous.
The two of them went out and relished their time together. Rich revealed to him that it had been a while since he had shed a tear when they were enjoying a drink on the rooftop that evening. When he is struggling with a situation, he sometimes feels incredibly lonely. As though drowning himself in solitude would be preferable. He feels trapped by everything, particularly at night. Tupe claims to recognize his emotions. Rich began a slow dance after playing a love tune. Rich observes him as he moves to the music, and when he sees that he’s starting to become emotional, he gets up and hugs him. As he tightly hugged him, he gave him a forehead kiss.
Rich apologizes to him for the accidental kiss he gave him on the lips. Tupe kissed him again, but when he questioned whether he was sure about what they were doing, he received a positive response. They gave each other a passionate kiss before entering Rich’s bed. Rich caressed his hair and told him he was a beautiful boy.
It seems like Rich and Tupe have a connection with each other. Will this connection blossom into love? Or were they just two lonely souls who found someone to lean on? Let’s find out in the last three episodes of ‘Papa, What is Love? ‘
