Chapter 100: Is Yan Qiuchi Being Coquettish?
“Are those people gone?” Shen Jintai asked while eating.
Xiao Tang said, “Some are. The others are still sitting in the hall.”
“Why don’t I post on Weibo to appeal,” Shen Jintai said. “I don’t know how long they’ll stay there.”
“They’ll disperse in the evening. Sleeping is not allowed in the hall,” Li Meilan said. “I’m worried about another thing.”
Shen Jintai: “What?”
Li Meilan: “Do you think they know President Yan?”
Shen Jintai was stunned.
Li Meilan said, “If they catch President Yan and you appearing in the same hotel, I don’t know what will happen. These people are crazier than your ordinary fans. They might really lose their minds if they know about this.”
“It’s okay. I’m not afraid of shadows,” Shen Jintai said it heartbreakingly.
“You can’t underestimate the power of rumors, especially that you’re now reddish purple*. Every move will detonate the Internet.” Li Meilan pushed up her glasses. “In fact, President Yan is a really good person. What I’m worried about is your fans’ acceptance of your relationship with him. When we made our comeback, we took the route of the rebirth of the phoenix. The fans you lost in the past have now come back. A large part of why they left was because of Yan Qiuchi. Although this old relationship has already been uncovered and published, there’s still a lingering shadow for your fans. It’s okay to fall in love, but not with him. The fans definitely won’t be able to accept it. When the time comes, your image will collapse, and I’m afraid the backlash will be even more severe than before. The fans will feel you have deceived them. It’s then not just an issue of them stopping being your fans.”
*(红的发紫) Describes someone who is extremely trusted and valued, like the sun in the sky. In ancient times, it referred to someone who was favored by the emperor.
Shen Jintai nodded solemnly. “Don’t worry. I don’t have any thoughts about him in my heart. It is impossible for old feelings to rekindle. I believe that as long as I have a resolute attitude, I will not break through, even if there are rumors.”
Li Meilan smiled and said, “Unless the fans also see President Yan’s face is really fragrant. He commences the chasing game with you, and he chases you like you chased him in the past. He keeps chasing, and you keep rejecting. With enough abuse, it will soften the public’s heart, and they will consider pitying him*.”
*Clarity: In this context, she’s saying if the fans can see Yan Qiuchi did a 180 and is now begging for forgiveness and chasing Shen Jintai madly, they might forgive him.
Shen Jintai smiled. “Do you think this situation is possible? Is Yan Qiuchi the kind of person who would pursue others so frantically?”
Li Meilan replied, “Originally, I thought it was impossible, but then Yan Qiuchi actually fell in love with you, so what else is impossible in this world?” She then flashed a smile at him.
Shen Jintai laughed, lowered his head, and flipped through the magazine in his hand. “Forget it. I can’t afford it.”
He hoped that Yan Qiuchi would give up and that they would return to their previous harmonious and distant relationship. There was only one bond between them, and that was Mrs. Yan. Because they both loved this same woman, they would continue to make contact with each other, but that was all.
This would save a lot of hassle and embarrassment. Time would eventually let his fans know that he and Yan Qiuchi were no longer possible. Their idol could now face the man he couldn’t yearn for with the most calm and simple smile.
After eating, Li Meilan asked Xiao Tang to bring some snacks and drinks and prepared to go out.
Li Meilan: “I’ll talk to those girls again to see if they can be obedient and leave.” It was still best to focus on appeasement.
It was raining, and there were illegitimate rice squatting outside, so he had nowhere to go. He had a lazy night, spending it in bed. After waking up, he turned on his phone camera and looked at himself. He had never analyzed his face so carefully before.
The most beautiful thing about him was his eyebrows, which were dark and long. It looked heroic but not too rigid. His eyes were bright, could convey all his emotions, and were very expressive when he was acting. The most vivid things were his lips. They were clean and tender, rosy and soft. The toughest thing was his chin, which had the standard male contour.
He liked this face a lot. Compared with his near-perfect body, his facial features weren’t particularly delicate compared to Bai Qingquan, but it was still a suitable face for an actor. He felt like he didn’t need to become prettier anymore.
Shen Jintai: “…”
“Dear,” Xiao Ai said cautiously.
“What’s the matter?”
“Dear, Xiao Ai has some different opinions on your thinking just now.”
“It’s easy for a beautiful man to be ugly, but it’s very difficult for a plain person to be beautiful. Your facial features might have improved, but Xiao Ai thinks your nose can be more perfect.”
After listening to this, Shen Jintai carefully looked at his nose. It hadn’t undergone any beautification, but he felt it was good-looking enough. It was at least better-looking than most male celebrities out there. Compared to a passerby, it could be considered godly.
“Dear, your nose is indeed good-looking, but a truly perfect nose is straight without humps. In the industry, only two individuals possess such an almost perfect nose. Dong Li among the female stars, and Gu Bai among the male stars.”
Shen Jintai used his phone to search for these two celebrities. Looking at them, he felt Xiao Ai’s words were true. Their noses were definitely the highlights.
“So dear, keep working hard. The room for beautification is unlimited! The entertainment industry is full of little fresh meat, but you want to become an immortal meat. The god of all immortals!”
“Xiao Ai,” Shen Jintai smiled lazily while lying in bed. “It’s a pity that you don’t do sales. Your little mouth is so talented.”
“Then do you like Xiao Ai or do you prefer Xiao Mei?”
“It’s been a long time since I saw Xiao Mei. I miss him a little bit. Is he your husband?” Shen Jintai said.
“Ah, how hateful!” Xiao Ai hurriedly said. “I am 1!”
“Bystanders can see it clearly but there is a type of person in this world who can never distinguish their own attributes, don’t you know?”
Just like Xiao Ai. He? A 1?!
Xiao Ai immediately said, “Yes, Xiao Ai also agrees with you.”
“What do you mean?”
“One sunny morning, there was a young man lying on the bed. His ass was wrapped in dark-colored sheets. His thin waist twisted, and his white skin accentuated his may cherries. Dear, do you think such a person is a gong or shou?”
Shen Jintai immediately sat up in bed, only to hear a beep as Xiao Ai went offline.
Where are you going, my Xiao Ai? Someone deserves a beating!
He felt that he had fallen into the trap of the system. At the rate this was going, he was going to be unable to attack, right?! Why didn’t he have the ability to make people’s stomachs bulge!
Yan Qiuchi was really the man he most aspires to be. Recalling Yan Qiuchi, he remembered that he was still sick. He called Xiao Tang over and asked him to check up on Yan Qiuchi. “See if he has seen a doctor and if he’s better.”
Xiao Tang nodded and went out. He came back a few minutes later and said, “I knocked on the door and no one answered.”
“No one answered?” Shen Jintai said. “Even if he went to the doctor, he should be back by now, right?”
He was getting worried, so he called Yan Qiuchi. The line rang for a long time before it eventually connected. Yan Qiuchi voice was hoarse as he answered, “Hello.”
“It’s me, Shen Jintai. Are you not at the hotel?”
“I took medicine and fell asleep,” Yan Qiuchi said.
“You didn’t go out to see a doctor?”
“I have taken antipyretic drugs, so I’m feeling better. Just a bit drowsy.” Yan Qiuchi asked, “Did you get off the plane?”
“I didn’t leave. I changed my flight,” Shen Jintai said. “Then you rest first. If you’re still not feeling well, go to the hospital.”
Yan Qiuchi responded with a “Nn”. Thinking Shen Jintai was about to hang up he called out, “Jintai.”
When Shen Jintai heard him calling his name like this, he couldn’t help but feel uneasy. He replied with a “Hm?”
“I had a vague dream just now. I dreamed of you,” Yan Qiuchi said.
Shen Jintai’s heart was pounding. OMG!
Yan Qiuchi’s voice was so hoarse and soft that it sounded like a lover’s murmur.
Shen Jintai let out a cough as he licked his lips, trying to think of what to say. Suddenly he heard Yan Qiuchi say, “You hang up. Thank you.”
“Thank you for what?” Shen Jintai whispered. “Buying and selling is not benevolent, hehe.”
“Thank you. Knowing that I am sick, you were still willing to come see me. I’m very touched. Truly.”
It felt as if he was lowering himself.
“As I should, of course.”
There seemed to be a slight sound of movement from Yan Qiuchi’s side, as if he were turning over. Yan Qiuchi’s voice was gentle, and it seemed to have a coquettish, sickly feeling as he said, “You are so kind.”
Frightened, Shen Jintai hurriedly hung up the phone. He threw the phone on the bed and looked at his arms.
My god, he had goosebumps.
“You are so kind.”
He raised his head to the sky, about to spit out a mouthful of blood!
