On the night of Xiao Ke’s thirtieth birthday, he shared a table while drinking. The person he shared the table with was a cool man who fit all of his aesthetic desires. It was practically love at first sight.

He was thirty; he had reached that age where he was no longer the awkward twenty-something youth. He would pursue the one he liked without hesitation, no questions asked.

“I want you to give me a tattoo. I want to spend the rest of my life with you.”

[Heartwarming relationship, sweet. Cool tattoo artist gong x handsome carefree teacher shou]

Not usually one for slice of life but this one was sooo good I had to make an exception. It’s short, simple, sweet, and most importantly, feels so real.

There is an audio drama for this novel! Link here if you’re interested: https://www.missevan.com/mdrama/drama/23022

    I’m here to ask permission to translate “Outside the Law” into Spanish in my wattpad account. My translations are NOT “copypaste”.

    I read and translate / edit in an orderly manner into Spanish.

    All the credits of your translation in English will be placed in a note at the beginning of the novel, you can go to see my translations where the credits are always to whom they correspond.

  8. is the main character the top or bottom? I’m on the chapter where they had their first night, but I looks like they are reversible, but I’m not sure?

    • He’s the bottom! Technically they are vers since neither mind topping/bottoming but they never actually swap roles (Xiao Ke did top in his other relationships though).

  9. Hello.
