Chapter 161: New Year’s Embrace

“Didn’t you tell Auntie Fang that you want to go back home?” Shen Jintai asked.

Yan Qiuchi looked a little confused and asked, “Did you say anything?”

Shen Jintai smiled and said, “Have you really drunk too much? Auntie told me several times before we left. What are you planning to do back at the hotel?”

Yan Qiuchi laughed. His face and neck were red, and he smiled shyly and said, “Nothing.”

Not long after they had left, Shen Jintai’s phone rang. He saw it was Liu Qi and connected it. “Your dad forgot to give you the red envelope he prepared for you.”

Fortunately, the car hadn’t gone far, so they turned around. When Shen Jintai got out of the car, Liu Qi ran over with a smile and handed him two red envelopes. “This one belongs to you, and this one is for Qiuchi.”

Shen Jintai smiled and said, “There’s mine as well.”

Liu Qi: “We know that you’re not short of money, and you often help us out. This is your father’s intention.”

“Thank Dad for me,” Shen Jintai said.

“Okay, it’s cold outside, so get in the car. Come and visit us when you have time.”

Shen Jintai was about to leave, but he saw Shen Xiaomei running out. He gave her a hug as Liu Qi said, “Your brother has something to do. He’ll come play with you next time.”

Eventually, Shen Xiaomei got tired and let go. Liu Qi smiled and said, “You’re filming with the crew now. Can we come visit you on set? Your dad told me some time ago that he wanted to see what your job is like.”

Shen Jintai: “No problem. Just tell me in advance before you come.”

Shen Jintai kissed Shen Xiaomei and put her down. She waved her hand and said, “Goodbye, Brother Qiuchi.”

Shen Jintai glanced back and saw that Yan Qiuchi had already gotten out of the car and was holding the car door for him as he waved back to Shen Xiaomei. Shen Jintai returned to the car and gave him the red envelope.

Fang Fengmei had given him a large red envelope earlier. He was still thinking about whether he would also give Yan Qiuchi one if Shen Ruhai hadn’t thought of it, but he didn’t expect that Shen Ruhai was already prepared. It was a good sign and meant that he was already considered a family member.

Shen Jintai had always had very subtle feelings for Shen Ruhai, and even for Shen Xiaomei and Liu Qi. He didn’t feel as comfortable with them compared to the Yan family, who weren’t even his blood relatives. When he thought about how Shen Ruhai was standing outside the arena that day alone, he felt sad and warm. Their father-son relationship was full of regrets and very similar to the story in <Welcome Rain on a Spring Night>.

The streets were deserted on New Year’s Eve. Shen Jintai leaned on Yan Qiuchi’s shoulder and smelt the heavy smell of alcohol on his body. Though he didn’t drink, the smell radiated off of him as if it were staining him as well.

Yan Qiuchi’s phone suddenly vibrated, and he took it out drunkenly and said, “It’s my mother.”

“Have you finished dinner?” Fang Fengmei asked.

Yan Qiuchi said, “Nn. Finished.”

“Then come back as soon as possible. Your dad is feeling depressed, saying the younger one ran out to fool around while the older one went to eat at someone else’s New Year’s Eve dinner. Come back and comfort him as soon as possible.”

He didn’t pay attention during the day, but when they returned back to the Yan’s Manor that night, Shen Jintai found that there were lots of colorful lights hanging in the courtyard that glowed brightly at night. Two red lanterns were hung in front of the courtyard, beaming vibrantly.

Shen Jintai helped Yan Qiuchi into the house. Fang Fengmei went downstairs to greet them and asked, “Have you drunk too much?”

“A little bit,” Yan Qiuchi said.

“He outdrank my dad,” Shen Jintai said.

“Yaoxuan didn’t come back?” Yan Qiuchi asked.

“No. He ran out in the afternoon, and he told me he was going to the Shan family. All the household staff have gone on vacation, so I asked him to come back early. Yet he still hasn’t even answered his phone now! I don’t know where he’s off fooling around,” Fang Fengmei said. “Don’t talk about it. It’s just the two of us at home, so it’s really deserted.”

Yan Qiuchi smiled and went to see Yan Tiefeng first. Yan Tiefeng was lying on the bed watching the Spring Festival Gala. When he saw them coming in, he said, “You came back so early.”

“Qiuchi outdrank Old Shen.” Fang Fengmei said as she came in with melon seeds and fruits.

Yan Tiefeng smiled when he heard this and said, “Old Shen still can’t hold his liquor.”

Yan Qiuchi turned on the headlights in the room. Now in the brightly lit room with two young men, the room seemed to have suddenly come back to life. The four chatted while watching the Spring Festival Gala. After less than ten minutes of gossiping, Yan Tiefeng said, “Okay, I’m sleepy, so you should go rest.”

Fang Fengmei was taken aback for a moment, then saw Yan Qiuchi stand up and say, “Then you should rest early.”

Shen Jintai also stood up, and Fang Fengmei said, “By the way, Xiao Jin, there may not be pajamas that fit you here. If not, you can make do with Qiuchi’s.”

“I’ll get it for him,” Yan Qiuchi said in a light tone.

After the two of them went out, Fang Fengmei closed the door and turned to Yan Tiefeng. “I just told the children to come back and accompany you, so why did you drive them away again?”

“Didn’t you see that the boss can’t sit still?” Yan Tiefeng said.

Fang Fengmei was surprised. “Really?”

Yan Tiefeng said, “He’s been looking at his watch absent-mindedly… and shaking his legs from time to time.”

With his excellent upbringing, Yan Qiuchi didn’t have bad habits, but when he was nervous or anxious, he would shake his legs. Yan Tiefeng thought that he had fixed this problem a long time ago, as he hadn’t seen it for so many years.

Yan Qiuchi went upstairs and checked the time. It was half past eight, so the night was still long. Shen Jintai said behind him, “Don’t bring me trousers, just short pajamas.”


Shen Jintai went back to his room. When he was chatting just now, his phone kept buzzing, so he turned it off. When he turned it back on, the phone shook violently as piles of notifications poured out. It was time for him to return all the new year’s blessings.

He sat down on the sofa and began to reply to text messages from more important people. While he was in the middle of it, Yan Qiuchi came in with pajamas.

“My pajamas may be a bit big for you to wear,” Yan Qiuchi said.

Shen Jintai said, “Nn”. Yan Qiuchi sat down beside him, tilted his body slightly to his side, and urged him. “You haven’t taken a shower yet.”

Shen Jintai: “I’m just finishing up replying to some messages.”

Yan Qiuchi sat next to him for a while, then went out. A few moments later, he came back in again and was dressed in his pajamas. Shen Jintai was still responding to messages. Yan Qiuchi sat by him again and leaned over.

Shen Jintai said, “I have to go film early tomorrow morning.”

Yan Qiuchi smiled and said, “I know.”

Shen Jintai put down the phone, stood up, and went to the shower. As he got up, Yan Qiuchi gave him a happy look and went straight to his bed. Shen Jintai didn’t speak but pursed his lips and went into the bathroom. He took a long shower before coming out. Yan Qiuchi’s pajamas were really too big for him.

When he sat down on the bed and opened the blanket, he found that Yan Qiuchi was already asleep. He was stunned momentarily. It seemed that he had taken too long in the bathroom.

Yan Qiuchi must’ve endured it pretty hard. In fact, Shen Jintai knew his pain whenever they slept together. He was also a man, and he liked Yan Qiuchi very much. When he was embraced by him, he would get excited, but he wasn’t as eager as Yan Qiuchi. At most, when he was on the brink of moving forward, his body would inadvertently shake.

It was quite uncomfortable. He laid down gently, stretched out his hands, and wrapped them around Yan Qiuchi’s waist. Suddenly, Yan Qiuchi caught his hand and pressed it against his forehead.

As soon as Shen Jintai moved, Yan Qiuchi grabbed him tightly. He hurriedly said, “I have to film tomorrow…”

“I know,” Yan Qiuchi said softly, “but it will take a month for you to finish filming.”

Shen Jintai: “I didn’t prepare…”

“Then promise me.”

Shen Jintai said, “Promise you what?”

“Let me embrace you.”

This requirement felt amicable. Shen Jintai didn’t speak until suddenly he grabbed Yan Qiuchi’s hand. “What are you doing undressing me?!”

“I just want to hold you. I promise I won’t do anything else.”

Shen Jintai struggled, and Yan Qiuchi said, “There’s no gas*. What are you afraid of? I’ve been thinking about you all day…”

*Car/driving is a euphemism for sex in Chinese. He’s saying there’s no gas (in the car) meaning that the car won’t be driving (no sex).

The darkness boosted Yan Qiuchi’s boldness, and he pressed Shen Jintai down and said, “Baby, be good…”

“Don’t call me baby.”

“Won’t call. Won’t call.”

“Hey.” Shen Jintai couldn’t hold onto his clothes. “Why are you acting like this?”

Yan Qiuchi stopped talking. He silently got up and turned on the bedside lamp. As soon as the lights turned on, he stared at Shen Jintai for a while as Shen Jintai wrapped himself tightly under the blankets. Yan Qiuchi quickly took off his clothes and rushed back in.

His skin hunger was finally satisfied. Both of them trembled, and Yan Qiuchi didn’t say a word. He simply hugged him, and the feeling of the skin-on-skin contact was mind-blowing. It was so shocking that it eventually got out of control. He said he would only hold him, but it turned out that a storm was currently brewing.
