Cot is a third-year student majoring in International Relations at HUFLIT. He’s also one of the excellent students in school, always getting awards. He’s a neat person. After class, he got absorbed in housework like cooking, hanging up the laundry, and mopping the floor. Doing these chores was his job. He’s the exclusive housekeeper of Mr. Quan, his 25-year-old boss. Until now, he had no idea what his boss was doing, even his work. Just coming home every night and making a mess. Not closing the door while doing a bath, but truly, Cot was not complaining. He’s just enjoying seeing his boss bareback, complimenting that Quan is attractive and in good shape. But don’t get him wrong; he’s working to earn a living and not to check out guys.
One night, Cot was sitting on the stairs while eating some fruits when his boss came home drunk. He immediately helped Quan stand up and asked why he was so drunk, but Quan just tapped his cheeks and called him darling, then proceeded upstairs to his room. Cot just signed and followed Quan to his room. He picked up some clothes that Quan had messed up on the floor. Suddenly, his Boss stood up and hugged him. Drunk, asking Cot why he had turned him down. Cot asks what’s the matter with him, requesting to get his hands off. But Quan didn’t stop talking, asking why he couldn’t accept him even though he did everything he wanted. Quan even asked him to tell him what he wanted. Cot realized what was happening, so he told the drunken Quan that he was not his lover. Quan, still gripping Cot, asked if he loved him, but the other shouted back a no and finally pushed him to bed. Cot picked up the clothes from the floor again, but Quan stopped him. Holding his other arm, Quan put the ring on Cot’s finger. Cot was so confused. After Quan put the ring on, he stood up and squished Cot’s cheeks, saying he accepted the ring and begged not to turn him down again. Cot is caught off guard when Quan kisses him. He pushed him hard and rubbed his mouth. Trying to remove the ring, he scolded Quan, saying that he was so drunk that he was mistaken for Quan’s ex. Quan just replied that finally, the ring found his owner.
