Chapter 153: Forever
“Go and get in touch with Xingyun and tell them that I’ll participate in the promotions.” Bai Qingquan said.
Wei Ge said: “They’ve actually been urging us for a while now.”
To the crew of <When You’re Older>, Bai Qingquan’s recent crisis was negligible. At most it would affect the box office contributed by moonlight powders, but the box office for this drama had never planned on relying on just fans alone. Bai Qingquan’s problem was not a legal or ethical issue. Passersby wouldn’t care that much and the influence of <The East Palace is Coming> was still there so the number of people who want to see this movie was always large in number, so they were generally optimistic.
Following The East Palace, there was finally another same-sex drama with similar face value and texture. The beauty and prosperity of Shen Jintai and Bai Qingquan can make the audience forgive all their black history.
And this was the real selling point of their movie: Really handsome guys shooting a same-sex movie that encompassed love and beauty with a high level of acting and content production.
When the film premieres, they had full confidence in it.
“I always thought Bai Qingquan was weak, so I didn’t expect him to step up to the plate.” Li Meilan said: “He’s quite courageous for daring to show up in public when his scandal was still recent. Moonlight powder have turned into black powder and have been blackening him recently. As soon as he makes his appearance, there’s going to be a bloody storm.”
Shen Jintai said: “He has always been like this, beautiful and kind-hearted.”
If Bai Qingquan wasn’t kind-hearted, he wouldn’t have help him get his role in <The East Palace> and he could have settled scores of the past with him. But because of Bai Qingquan’s kind heart, he couldn’t let him face it alone. Bai Qignquan has a girlish heart and needed a lot of face. If there’s too much ridicule, he would not be able to stand it.
“Let’s also discuss with Xingyun, and adjust it a little bit. If its my turn to go, let me go. Don’t let Qingquan replace me. If there’s a need for both of us to attend together, don’t push for it. I’ll go instead.”
He felt that Bai Qingquan also needed him to support him as well.
Li Meilan nodded and said: “You can sleep for a while. I think your dark circles are showing.”
Shen Jintai laid on the seat and said: “I don’t know how Uncle Yan is now.”
He did not go directly back to the hotel but went to the hospital first. Outside the ward, he saw Shan Cheng and Yan Yaoxuan again. The two of them were standing at the window. Yan Yaoxuan saw him and went into the ward.
Shen Jintai nodded towards Shan Cheng. He thought Yan Yaoxuan had a really good friend, that was very enthusiastic, since he has been in the hospital this whole time and has never left his side.
“Are you Shen Jintai?” Shan Cheng asked suddenly. He didn’t speak Mandrain well, a sign that he grew up overseas.
Shen Jintai nodded, and Shan Cheng said: “I wasn’t able to talk to you yesterday. Remember me? Shan Cheng.”
Before Shen Jintai could respond, Yan Yaoxuan came out, took Shen Jintai’s arm and said in an unhappy tone: “Ignore him. He’s a psycho.”
Shen Jintai was pulled into the ward before Yan Yaoxuan let him go then went out to talk to Shan Cheng behind the closed door. Shen Jintai vaguely heard Yan Yaoxuan say: “What are you planning?”
“I’m not planning anything. I have heard about him for a while now and want to get to know him in person.” Shan Cheng said: “He’s taller and more handsome than on TV. You have a good eye.”
Yan Yaoxuan said: “My house is messy enough. If you’re fine, then just leave.”
After speaking, he also went into the ward. Mrs. Yan had already been taken off the ventilator and was able to speak. Shen Jintai sat next to her with a smile on his face and tears in his eyes.
“Did I give you a scare?” Mrs. Yan touched his hand and said weakly: “It’s okay.”
Shen Jintai didn’t know what to say. He was uncontrollably happy to see Mrs. Yan able to speak again.
Mrs. Yan was still very weak. The Yan family hired a professional caretaker that would care for her 24/7 in addition to Old Lady Fang who refused to leave and insisted on staying at the ward. Shen Jintai sat inside for a while before he came out. Suddenly he saw someone rushing over. He was startled and hurriedly grabbed the man’s arm: “What’s the matter?!”
“The chairman is awake!” The man said excitedly.
Shen Jintai followed the man into Mrs. Yan’s ward. Yan Yaoxuan and the others were overjoyed hearing the news. Mrs. Yan burst into tears as Old Lady fang wiped her own eyes and said: “Finally, you can feel at ease now.”
Shen Jintai also wanted to shed tears as well. He was incredibly happy for himself and for Mrs. Yan. He felt he needed to tell Yan Qiuchi the news quickly.
“My brother went back to the hotel to sleep. He recently just left not long ago.” Yan Yaoxuan said.
Shen Jintai immediately took the car back to the hotel. On the way, he told Li Meilan and Xiao Tang and they too, were overjoyed by the news. Li Meilan smiled and said: “Thank goodness. I’ve been holding onto my heart this whole time!”
Emotions can easily influence others. Shen Jintai suddenly felt relief. When he returned to the hotel, he immediately ran into the bedroom excitedly but saw Yan Qiuchi lying on his side of the bed, his body curled up slightly and he was sleeping soundly.
He returned to the living room, and Li Meilan asked in a low voice: “Is he sleeping?”
Shen Jintai nodded and said in a low voice: “You all go back first. Thank you for your hard work.”
“Then Brother Jin, call me if you need something.” Xiao Tang said.
After sending them away, Shen Jintai took off his coat, went to the bedroom, sat by the bed for a while, then took off his shoes and crawled into bed, lying gently behind Yan Qiuchi with his head rested against his shoulder and his arms gently resting on his waist.
His sadness and worry were not only just his feelings for the Yan family but also because they were Yan Qiuchi’s parents. He loves Yan Qiuchi, so he didn’t want him to be sad and he didn’t want him to lose such good parents.
Now that everything is better, he wanted to tell Yan Qiuchi the good news immediately, but he wanted him to sleep a little longer. Seeing him so haggard made Shen Jintai distressed so he didn’t want to wake up, but he was afraid that Yan Qiuchi might suffer in his dreams.
He laughed slightly, his eyes moistened as he put his face on Yan Qiuchi’s back and closed his eyes. He too can now get a good night’s sleep. He wasn’t sure how long he stayed there but he suddenly woke up in a daze. He didn’t know when, but Yan Qiuchi had already turned around and faced him. Darkness covered the room. After he moved, he realized that Yan Qiuchi had woken up.
“Uncle Yan woke up.” Was the first thing that he said.
Yan Qiuchi responded with: “Nn. I saw the text sent by Yaoxuan.”
Shen Jintai stretched out his hand and wrapped his arms around Yan Qiuchi’s neck. Yan Qiuchi hugged him and the two embraced as their heart beat against each other’s.
Shen Jintai felt that life was very fragile. A loved one can leave at any moment. Life was so impermanent, and the time spent together was even more precious. They couldn’t see each other clearly in the dark, but they were familiar with each other’s smell. When he breathed in Yan Qiuchi’s scent, his heart felt full.
“What’s the matter?” Yan Qiuchi asked.
“It’s nothing,” Shen Jintai said: “I just suddenly felt that I love you more than I thought.”
Their hearts have never been so close before. For the first time, Shen Jintai felt the deep bond they had formed, one that cared for each other and each other’s families. This was something more precious than passion and will accompany them for a lifetime.
Yan Qiuchi touched his face. His skin was warm, and his fingertips were warmer.
