Chapter 98: Xiao Ai’s Suggestion!
Shen Jintai felt that Yan Qiuchi standing in front of him was impulsive and smart. His confession was phrased very craftily. Using his own words against him, ‘Everyone has changed’, Shen Jintai couldn’t respond back with things like ‘Didn’t you hate me?’ or ‘Didn’t you say that you wouldn’t ever fall in love with me in this life or the next?’ or ‘How could you fall in love with me?’ and such.
‘Everyone is changing. The past is the past, so let’s not mention it anymore.’
‘The current Yan Qiuchi likes Shen Jintai very much.’
As an artist, he couldn’t help but think what a clever and moving confession. As expected from a man who was so shrewd!
Shen Jintai licked his lower lip. This confession was anachronistic and inappropriate.
Yan Qiuchi also knew. He had a 1 in 10,000 chance of success. The remaining 9,999 possibilities were all rejections. Still, he had to confess before Shen Jintai confessed to Bai Qingquan. He had to let Shen Jintai know that he had fallen in love with him. Perhaps Shen Jintai would be able to look back at him before he decided to chase Bai Qingquan.
“You may not believe me,” Shen Jintai finally spoke. His face was flushed. “I’m a 1 now.”
Yan Qiuchi: “…”
Shen Jintai was embarrassed. A frightening thought suddenly popped into his head. ‘What if Yan Qiuchi was a 0?’
Looking at Yan Qiuchi, he was taller than him, stronger than him, bigger than him, richer than him, and more refined than him! If he could conquer such a big onslaught, he would feel a special sense of accomplishment. He didn’t hate this thought either!
Ahhh, what was he thinking? It was Bai Qingquan’s 0 beauty that was more in line with his aesthetics! The world had gone awry! Why would he force a 1 to be a 0! If he wanted a 0, how could Yan Qiuchi compare to Bai Qingquan?
“First, thank you.” Shen Jintai gave an embarrassing smile as he put his hands into his pockets again. “You’re really good, but the two of us may not be compatible.” He didn’t expect it would be so difficult to use the good person card.
Yan Qiuchi remained silent for a long time. He then said, “It was originally something that couldn’t be forced. I knew it would be this result.”
Shen Jintai was about to say a few words of comfort when Yan Qiuchi suddenly said, “You have always misunderstood the relationship between me and Bai Qingquan. The fact is, we just have an ordinary relationship. I want you to know that I have never liked him in that way. You are my first love.”
When Shen Jintai heard him say ‘first love’, his heart instantly shook. Yan Yaoxuan had confessed to him twice now, but it was incomparable to his brother. It wasn’t as if Shen Jintai did anything wrong, but hearing Yan Qiuchi’s confession, he couldn’t help but feel like a cold-faced and ruthless scumbag.
Hearing those words… Shen Jintai felt that he had let down the innocent and masculine heart of an overbearing president.
All the while, Yan Qiuchi was still issuing crits one after another. It was extremely sincere… at least to him, it sounded sincere. “This is the first time I like someone so much. I may not be able to hold back in the future and might say or do something unreasonable. I hope you can forgive me in advance. Before you get a lover, may I continue to keep loving you?”
Shen Jintai suddenly felt that he couldn’t match Yan Qiuchi. ‘Of course you can keep loving me! What qualification does he have to prevent him from doing so?!
But Shen Jintai felt that these words seemed to be luring him into a trap. He licked his lips again.
Yan Qiuchi said, “Thank you.”
My lord! The domineering president had suddenly lowered his position. His expression looked so lonely, and his tone was so sincere. Shen Jintai… couldn’t bear it anymore!
“No… No need for thanks,” Shen Jintai said.
He had rejected Yan Yaoxuan’s so readily, yet it seemed like he lost all his abilities in this moment. Did these words count as a rejection? Why did he feel so confused and unclear? ‘I may not be able to hold back in the future and might say or do something unreasonable.’ What would he say? What would he do?
Shen Jintai didn’t feel like this when he rejected Yan Yaoxuan. His mind was a mess. Looking at Yan Qiuchi walking in front of him, he was tall and especially handsome when he turned to look back at him. Such an excellent man who’s admired by thousands had fallen in love with him. Suddenly, Shen Jintai thought it wasn’t all that bad.
“What?!!! Ahhhhhhhhhh!” Li Meilan was screaming her head off.
Shen Jintai, who was sitting cross-legged on the sofa: “…”
“Yan Qiuchi actually confessed to you?! Ahhhhhhhhh!” Li Meilan hurriedly asked, “Then, how did you reject?”
“How do you know that I rejected him?”
“I saw President Yan’s face looking dead, and I knew something must have happened, but I didn’t expect it was him confessing to you. I mean, you two used to be like that. If he wanted to confess to you, he must have had tons of courage. After all, it’s equivalent to slapping himself in the face. It’s not easy for a man of his status and origin.”
“Don’t talk about it. I’ll sympathize with him if you keep talking about it.”
“Don’t.” Li Meilan calmed down a little. “This sister praise you for doing a good job.”
“Am I already so good that even Yan Qiuchi likes me?” Shen Jintai said. “Yan Qiuchi should be the most unlikely person in the world to like me, right?”
Yan Qiuchi, who once hated him to the bone, and is such a stellar man, could fall in love with him now. This signified that it was possible for others to like him as well. He could take Yan Qiuchi but he couldn’t take Bai Qingquan? Bai Qingquan was thirstier for love than Yan Qiuchi.
“Do you have any misunderstandings about yourself?” Li Meilan crossed her arms and looked at Shen Jintai’s ass, then at his exposed calves and feet.
Shen Jintai looked up at her.
Li Meilan said, “Do you know how many people are crazy about you now?”
Women loved him. Rotten women loved him even more. Hell, even some straight men had a very good impression of him. Shen Jintai’s temperament was fascinating. He was particularly lustful when he desired, but when he was upright, he was completely straight-laced. He had the figure of a young and handsome guy with white, tender, and pink parts. No matter if they were male or female, they all loved him.
Shen Jintai was lying on the sofa with only loose shorts and a t-shirt on. His black hair was thick, he had clear eyes, ruddy lips, a sharp-angled chin, slender fingers, and well-defined joints. Even his feet had the perfect blend of white and red.
So good. So excellent.
Sure enough, people love all things beautiful. Li Meilan felt that she would be moved if she kept staring. Shen Jintai didn’t have that girlish look. He was a good-looking, handsome guy that straight women would fawn over!
Shen Jintai: “Tell the crew that I’m going to dinner tonight. Otherwise, if I stay in the hotel, I might run into Yan Qiuchi, and he might invite me to dinner.”
“I get a little excited when I think of it,” Li Meilan smiled and said. “Such a good man like President Yan can be deflated. This is really a once-in-a-lifetime encounter. An excellent man like him couldn’t receive the feelings he wanted. It gives me a perverted feeling just thinking about it.”
Shen Jintai felt that Li Meilan seemed to be lost in her feelings at this moment. Still, he was a bit tickled by what Li Meilan said. Yan Qiuchi was very good, and about this, no one in the world would have doubts.
Yan Qiuchi was lying motionless on the bed. Although the result of the confession was what he had expected, and despite his sly wording, he couldn’t help but feel disappointed at being rejected. He still had a friendly relationship with Shen Jintai. This meant the road wasn’t completely blocked. There was still room for opportunity. In the end, though, this was still his first confession and his first rejection. It would be a lie to say he wasn’t sad.
Yet despite this, his love continued to burn stronger, filling his heart, especially when he thought about what would happen when they returned to Nancheng. Shen Jintai would start filming with Bai Qingquan, and there were many parts that had extremely emotional love scenes. What was more, Shen Jintai already had some feelings toward Bai Qingquan.
He could only hope that Bai Qingquan remained unmoved.
Should he take action? Yan Qiuchi rested his arm coldly. He only needed to use a little bit of means, and what he couldn’t get, others wouldn’t either.
Shen Jintai had just returned from the banquet. It was already past 11 at night. He had drunk some wine, so his body was red. Since he had received the flushing reward, he would turn red after drinking a single glass of wine, especially on his chest. He wiped the fog from the mirror and analyzed his body.
While he was showering, a thought suddenly occurred to him. Yan Qiuchi no longer hating him must be due to his personality, but whether he liked him… Was it because of his body?
Thinking that Yan Qiuchi might be lustful for his body, he immediately touched his belly subconsciously.
He wasn’t the official match, so he certainly wouldn’t be able to eat it*.
*Clarity: He’s referring to the official CP of the novel he transmigrated in, which would originally be Bai Qingquan x Yan Qiuchi. So what he’s saying is that because he’s not Bai Qingquan, he wouldn’t be able to take Yan Qiuchi’s dick.
Ah, fortunately, thankfully, he refused. Some things may look beautiful in writing, but in this reality, he was a cannon fodder. How could he have such ability!
Shen Jintai hurriedly put on his bathrobe.
“Dear!” Xiao Ai called.
“What are you doing?” Shen Jintai didn’t have a good impression of this love system anymore!
“Dear, Xiao Ai is secretly working overtime to chat with you this time. After more than a year of companionship, Xiao Ai has established a very deep revolutionary friendship with you, so Xiao Ai would like to ask you a question.”
Shen Jintai: “Go ahead.”
“Xiao Ai also saw the male protagonist’s confession to you, so I’m really excited.”
“Dear, do you remember what I told you? As long as the male protagonist and the official match are no longer together, it would be considered clear. That is to say, you do not have to attack Bai Yueguang. Instead, attack the male protagonist and let Yan Qiuchi love you to death. This is also a path to success! Dear, do you want to think about it? If you consider it, Xiao Ai will apply for other rewards.”
“Other rewards?” Shen Jintai had a premonition in his heart, and his face turned red all of a sudden.
Xiao Ai laughed wretchedly. “Hee, hee~ It’s the rewards you’re thinking about. With these rewards and strong confrontation, you don’t have to worry about anything!”
What the hell?! Shen Jintai felt he was going to vomit blood. “I don’t need it, thank you!”
“Dear, Bai Yueguang only wants a big attack. It’s going to be really difficult for you to attack him to clear the final goal. It’s much easier to target the male protagonist instead. He can’t even sleep at night, as all he does is think about you! Even at night…”
“Stop!” Shen Jintai felt that there was already an image inappropriate for children appearing in his mind. “I still want to be able to face him normally in the future. Please don’t tell me about his inner fantasies, thanks!”
“Well, you can think on it. Xiao Ai won’t bother you anymore.” But after Xiao Ai said these words, he didn’t hear the beeping sound.
Sure enough, Xiao Ai’s voice rang out again. “Dear, Yan Qiuchi, as the male protagonist in a danmei, is innocent and clean. He lives well, has money, and is successful. Once he’s with you, it will be for a lifetime. Being able to sing songs every night* is not a condition that ordinary men can have. He’s really the best man in the world. Are you not really considering it at all? You even have a mother-in-law who already loves you so much!”
*(夜夜笙歌) Idiom referring to emperors living extravagantly and lavishly. Now it’s used to describe a person’s sensual and lustful life. || In this context, yes, it’s what you’re thinking.
Shen Jintai finally realized that Xiao Ai is a devil who is good at temptation!
The author has something to say:
Xiao Ai, would you consider joining our matchmaking love system?
Umm excuse me Shen Jintai? Nothing is hotter than having a tall, handsome, stronger man under you. I will take a 0 Yan Qiuchi any day!
OMG Yan Qiuchi’s sincere and heartfelt confession where he laid his feelings bare just melted my heart!!!
He wasn’t the official match, so he certainly wouldn’t be able to eat it. – Me: Not with that attitude!
