Chapter 126: Contest
Yan Qiuchi went back upstairs after eating. Strong winds were blowing outside as raindrops
fell, slamming against the window. He took a shower and laid on the bed. The more he read the screenshots from Shen Jintai, the more uncomfortable he felt.
The person he liked was an actor. He should support Shen Jintai in any of his endeavors. While he understood the reasons, it still bothered him to see Shen Jintai doing these kinds of scenes. Perhaps the news hit him too suddenly, as he always thought it was simply going to be kissing scenes.
He was especially surprised by Bai Qingquan, who followed the fairy route since his debut. He didn’t expect him to sacrifice so much just for this movie.
He called Zhang Yuan and asked, “Did you know that Bai Qingquan’s new movie has a lot of passionate scenes?”
Zhang Yuan said, “…I know. Qian Wei reported to me yesterday.”
Yan Qiuchi: “You all agree?”
Zhang Yuan said, “Qian Wei and the others have agreed. I have always believed in their vision. They are willing to make such a big concession, so they must have fully considered it, but if you’re not satisfied, President Yan…”
Yan Qiuchi: “No, I was just a little surprised, so I called to ask.”
Zhang Yuan: “…Oh…”
“I’m hanging up now.” Yan Qiuchi hung up the phone and then threw it on the bed, planning to go to sleep. He turned off the lights and laid down. The sound of the rain was loud, and he couldn’t fall asleep because he was too unsettled.
If the drama was going to be on this kind of scale, were the kissing scenes simply a taste? He had kissed Shen Jintai twice on the lips. Was Shen Jintai’s lips going to be touched by another man? Even if that man was a so-called sister like Bai Qingquan, he was afraid that it wasn’t just a matter of kissing, but that other places would also be kissed. He didn’t know to what extent their passionate scene would be filmed.
They won’t be completely naked, will they?
He kept trying to comfort himself by saying that it was all an act, and he should look at the matter more rationally.
The rain outside was getting heavier. Mrs. Yan has told the maid to close all the windows and gone upstairs. She suddenly saw the light of a car coming from outside, surprising her. She said to the maid, “Is the sir back?”
“He said he wouldn’t be back tonight.” Mrs. Yan was about to go out to see him when she saw Yan Qiuchi hurriedly descending the stairs in a thick coat.
Mrs. Yan: “It’s raining so hard, and you still want to go out?”
Yan Qiuchi said, “Nn. Something’s wrong.”
As he opened the door, the strong wind swept across his face, splattering rain all over it. Xiao Li had already gotten out of the car and quickly ran over with an umbrella. Mrs. Yan walked to the door, feeling the chill of the rainy autumn night. She hid half her body behind the door, only sticking her head out as she watched Yan Qiuchi get into the car. She shouted, “Xiao Li, drive slowly on the road.”
Xiao Li bowed to her, then put away his umbrella and got into the car. The rain was heavy, covering the light from the car. Raindrops fell endlessly, flooding the ground with stagnant water. Despite having Xiao Li help him with an umbrella, Yan Qiuchi’s coat was still soaked. He took off his coat and said, “Go to Chaoyang Hotel.”
Shen Jintai was looking at his phone from time to time but never saw Yan Qiuchi reply to him. He suspected he must’ve stimulated him. He didn’t know why he sent those pictures to Yan Qiuchi. Maybe it was to irritate and bother him in order to make him jealous. Thinking like this, he couldn’t help but feel inexplicably happy.
“Why are you always looking at your phone?” Bai Qingquan asked while lying on the sofa.
Now that the others are gone, only the two of them are left. The two of them were laying around on the sofa. Bai Qingquan looked at Shen Jintai, who was beside him, and the thick emotion he had in his heart came up again.
It was raining heavily outside. The two of them were lying on the sofa. Bai Qingquan looked at Shen Jintai beside him, and the thick emotion in his heart came up again. Shen Jintai had drunk some alcohol, so his face and neck were red. He was lying on the sofa with his shirt rolled up, exposing his waist.
Suddenly, a ding dong sounded, and Xiao Ai came online. “Dear, congratulations on getting another three points. The body fragrance reward has been sent out. Please pay attention and check it out!”
Shen Jintai became excited and immediately looked at Bai Qingquan. He saw that Bai Qingquan was leaning on the sofa, looking askew as if he wanted to fall asleep. With his heart tightening, he quickly stood up, sorted out the beer cans on the table, and said, “You should go back to your room to sleep.”
Bai Qingquan stretched out, stood up, and said, “I should go. After drinking, I feel as though I started developing feelings for you, hahahaha.”
Shen Jintai felt pity. Did he really want to give up such a superb little 0 beauty?
As he was lost in his thoughts, he saw Bai Qingquan stagger under his feet and quickly grabbed his arm. Bai Qingquan fell into his arms and supported himself on his chest.
“Did you drink too much?” Shen Jintai asked.
Bai Qingquan smiled and said, “A bit.” His normally pure face was now stained with wine, making it look very enticing, like an enchanting little beauty.
“Be careful,” Shen Jintai said.
Bai Qingquan straightened up. “I want to drink during filming tomorrow,” he said, as he walked towards the door. When he reached the door, he waved his hand, but did not look back. “Good night, I’m off.”
“Good night.” Shen Jintai was about to close the door when suddenly lightning flashed outside, followed by the booming sound of rumbling thunder.
Bai Qingquan was startled and quickly retreated into Shen Jintai’s arms, shouting, “Shit!” Sure enough, he was a little chicken that was afraid of thunder!
Shen Jintai smiled and patted him on the shoulder, saying, “You’re a big man, and you’re still afraid of a little thunder?”
“Although I am a big man, I have a little princess in my heart.” Bai Qingquan said without any hesitation, as he was able to let go after a few drinks. He was particularly bold tonight as he said, “With such a big thunder, I need a strong gong to hold me tightly in their arms and protect me!”
Shen Jintai laughed loudly at Bai Qingquan’s contrived act. He felt no ambiguity between them at all. He stretched out his arms and wrapped them around Bai Qingquan’s shoulder as he joked, “Then come into this brother’s arms and he’ll protect you!”
Bai Qingquan suddenly pushed him away, looking flustered. Shen Jintai was stunned momentarily and noticed there was a man standing outside. He thought he had encountered another illegitimate rice and quickly dragged Bai Qingquan over and reached out to close the door. Bai Qingquan was in mid-bow when he staggered as he was dragged by Shen Jintai. All he heard was a loud bang as the door closed.
Bai Qingquan was stunned and looked back at Shen Jintai.
Shen Jintai asked, “Who was it?”
“President Yan,” Bai Qingquan said.
“…President Yan,” Bai Qingquan said.
Shen Jintai froze before hurriedly opening the door. Bai Qingquan grabbed his arm. “Ahhhhhhhh.”
Shen Jintai: “What’s the matter?”
“President Yan didn’t misunderstand just now, right? Wuwuwu. Will he hide my body in the snow?”
Shen Jintai: “…”
He reached out and opened the door again and saw Yan Qiuchi standing outside. Bai Qingquan clasped both hands in front of him and greeted him cautiously, “Good evening, President Yan.”
Yan Qiuchi asked, “I wasn’t bothering you, was I?”
“No, no, I was preparing to go back from this… sisters party, hehehe.” Bai Qingquan’s face was flushed, and he hoped the word “sister” would relieve Yan Qiuchi’s misunderstanding. Besides, the last time he texted and claimed to be a sister, it was already seen by Yan Qiuchi. The jar was already broken, and it broke again*. He quickly slipped out, leaving Shen Jintai and Yan Qiuchi by themselves.
*(破罐子破摔) Metaphor referring to having shortcomings, mistakes, or setbacks, and continue to let it flow without correction or on the contrary intentionally develop in a worse direction. || In this context, it’s basically saying Yan Qiuchi already knows he’s a sister so rather than try to fix his image, he’ll just continue to let it develop this way.
Shen Jintai licked his lips and asked, “Why are you here at this time?”
Yan Qiuchi: “Can I go in and talk?”
Shen Jintai let go of the hand that supported the door, allowing Yan Qiuchi to enter. When he went in, he saw a few cans of beer on the table.
As Shen Jintai was about to close the door, he saw Bai Qingquan peering from his room with a pair of gossipy eyes. His head was conspicuously poking out at the corner of the door, and he made a gesture of OK with his hands.
Shen Jintai closed the door and said, “Sit anywhere you like. What do you want to drink?”
“No need,” Yan Qiuchi said.
Shen Jintai realized that his hair was still a little damp. “It’s raining so hard outside. Why are you here?”
He couldn’t say anything in front of Shen Jintai. What could he say? Even if he was a little upset over the passion scenes, it wasn’t like he could stop them from shooting it. It wasn’t whether he had the qualification or not; unless there was a legitimately unfavorable reason for Shen Jintai, he shouldn’t interfere with his career. If he couldn’t handle this, how could he possibly be with an actor?
He turned his head and looked at Shen Jintai. Shen Jintai put his hands in his pockets and took a step back, staring back at him.
“I missed you, so I wanted to see you,” Yan Qiuchi said suddenly.
Shen Jintai was startled.
Unexpectedly, words of love came out of Yan Paifang’s mouth. His heart started pounding as he asked, “Then are you satisfied?”
Yan Qiuchi said “Nn” and turned around to leave.
“Yan Qiuchi.” Shen Jintai stopped him and said, “If you have something to say, just say it.”
Yan Qiuchi said, “It’s nothing.”
Shen Jintai: “I thought you came here was because of the script.”
Yan Qiuchi turned his head and looked at Shen Jintai.
Shen Jintai: “Unhappy?”
Yan Qiuchi: “No.”
Shen Jintai walked up to him and raised his head slightly, directly looking into his eyes. Yan Qiuchi was suddenly bewitched by him and felt that this action, along with the atmosphere and the conversation they were having, carried a certain kind of speechless acquiescence and teasing. He was entranced as he stared motionless at Shen Jintai. He held his breath as he lowered his head gently but kept his eyes staring at Shen Jintai, as if to carefully observe his reaction.
Perceiving that Shen Jintai hadn’t moved, he stretched out his hand and put it on Shen Jintai’s shoulder, wanting to kiss him. When they were just about to kiss, Shen Jintai suddenly asked, “What are you doing?”
His eyes were very provocative, and Yan Qiuchi felt his breath blowing on him. Shen Jintai suddenly remembered the golden retriever he had trained and felt excitement at the ability to control Yan Qiuchi. Such a tall, strong, and handsome male protagonist would one day obey his words. The thrill of conquest excited him, as he no longer struggled with the issues of being a gong or shou.
Yan Qiuchi gave him a shy, embarrassing smile, but his eyes never left him, and his eyebrows creased. “Kiss you.”
“Try it.” Shen Jintai said, “Kiss me, and let’s see what the consequences will be.”
Yan Qiuchi’s throat bobbed, but his cautiousness fueled Shen Jintai’s ambition. Shen Jintai asked, “Have you gotten my permission?”
“Then can I kiss you?” Yan Qiuchi asked.
Shen Jintai: “What do you think?”
“Your face is very red,” Yan Qiuchi whispered.
Shen Jintai: “Because I’ve been drinking.”
Yan Qiuchi abruptly grabbed him, pressed him against the wall, and kissed him. Shen Jintai’s back was slammed against the wall, but he didn’t turn his head. Yan Qiuchi had captured him and started kissing his ears. His whole face and neck instantly turned red, only further stimulating Yan Qiuchi, who suddenly released him.
Shen Jintai was horrified. Oh my god, he hadn’t expected Yan Qiuchi to be so unscrupulous. The old house was on fire, and he couldn’t control it!
Shen Jintai’s about to learn a good lesson: play with fire and you’ll get burned.
On a side note: Bai Qingquan is super cute. He needs his gong ASAP.
