Chapter 177: Sprinkling Sugar
To be handsome, a man must first be tall, and have long legs, good waist, and broad shoulders. Yan Qiuchi was not only 1.9 meters, but his proportion was excellent. His face matched perfectly with his broad shoulders and his narrow waist and long legs were the perfect size. He was muscular, but not too overly buff, and his face was extremely handsome.
When he wore clothes, he looked much thinner, so no one had expected he was so well-defined underneath. Yan Qiuchi’s usual style was very different from Shen Jintai and the other two male celebrities. His usual formal attire was very low key and rigid. Everyone couldn’t imagine what he would look like with his clothes off and now they were stunned speechless!
Shen Jintai on the other hand had always thought Yan Qiuchi was sexy with or without clothes on. He felt that Yan Qiuchi was most handsome when he’s wearing a suit. With his somewhat ascetic looks and handsome facial features, it exuded a very strong sexual charm. When he took off his clothes, he was… fine.
It was obvious that his female companions regarded him as a sister, but when they looked at Yan Qiuchi, they considered him a 100% full male. They were shy, surprised, excited all combined and they wanted to take a closer look.
Yan Qiuchi was wearing loose swimming trunks as he felt too embarrassed to wear a tight-fitting one, but even they had their drawbacks as they tend to cling to the skin after getting wet.
“Brother Chi’s in great shape.” Wang Siyi couldn’t help compliment.
Tang Ye asked: “What about me?”
“It’s not bad, but it’s not comparable to Brother Chi.”
Tang Ye looked jealous: “It’s a pity that Brother Chi already has a master grass, so don’t be delusional. Your partner is me.”
Wang Siyi said: “Yes, what a pity!”
After speaking, she laughed and splashed a handful of water on Tang Ye’s face. Tang Ye immediately splashed back, causing Wang Siyi’s scream to fill the hot springs. There was a hint of ambiguity in the scream. In the dense water vapor, Yang Lizhi saw the staff members holding the camera as they walked towards them.
Yang Lizhi felt that with her experience in the entertainment industry for so many years, she couldn’t be robbed of her limelight on a variety show. It was obvious that Shen Jintai and Yan Qiuchi pair was being supported by the program team and she couldn’t compete, but if she can’t even compete for beauty against a newcomer like Wang Siyi, then what was she still doing in the industry!
She immediately loosened off her bath towel and let out a soft scream that attracted the attention of the follow-up camera. The bath towel became loose, so she immediately covered her chest and squatted into the water. Zheng Siqi was very gentlemanly and blocked the follow-up camera lens.
She was after all a popular actress, so she had to make a name for herself. Yang Lizhi clenched her hand and said: “Jintai.” Since Shen Jintai is gay, it was more appropriate to ask him for help and also by interreacting with him, she can rub off his heat.
Shen Jintai walked over as soon as he heard this and found that the knot on Yang Lizhi’s bath towel had opened, and the outermost circle had loosened. Before he could stretch out his hand to help, Wang Siyi had swam over first and asked: “Sister Yang. What’s wrong?”
Without waiting for Yang Lizhi to respond she let out an “Ah” and quickly stretched out her hand to fastened Yang Lizhi’s towel.
Yang Lizhi: “…”
Shen Jintai laughed inwardly. These two female stars shouldn’t be taken lightly. It was obvious that Yang Lizhi didn’t like Wang Siyi and made very little effort to hide it. However, Wang Siyi had always behaved sweetly and likes to rely on Yang Lizhi. Both has different path, as Yang Lizhi took the route of the gorgeous queen while Wang Siyi was the delicate little princess. As far as the program is concerned, both of them are pretty dedicated to their route which made for a distinctive showing.
While the director felt that those two were pretty dedicated, the least dedicated was Yan Qiuchi and Zhang Siqi. They had on serious expressions as they sat to the side and chatted, ignoring the schemes of the production crew.
Relatively speaking, Zheng Siqi was the most low-key. After recording these two days, it felt like he was an invisible person. His outer personality is supposed to be cold and handsome, but his actual personality was honest and gentle, which was is why he was particularly suitable to become friends with.
After soaking for about half an hour, everyone came out of the pool one by one. The staff handed bathrobes to the female stars and bath towels to the male stars. Shen Jintai took his towel and tied it around his waist. When he saw Yan Qiuchi coming out of the pool, he blocked the camera filming them. It’s just that this scene was caught by his follow-up camera that captured his smile.
After soaking in the hot spring, it was already late at night. Shen Jintai felt hungry as he didn’t have much to eat that night and the other guys were in the same boat, so they proposed to find a restaurant to eat together.
At this time, very few restaurants were open, so the six people wandered around the streets and finally found a Chinese restaurant that was still open. The owner is Cantonese and was very excited when he saw their group stopped in: “A friend in my country told me that there were stars coming here to record a show. I thought he was just joking around.”
He knew three of the six people as he had seen <The East Palace is Coming>. He also knew some of Shen Jintai’s gossip, but it was only a little, so he had assumed that Shen Jintai and Zheng Siqi were lovers both inside and outside the drama.
“You two are a perfect match,” The owner couldn’t help boast as he served them food.
Shen Jintai smiled and tilted towards Yan Qiuchi, and asked the boss: “Then do you think I am worthy of this gentleman?”
The owner said: “You’re a better match to the prince.”
Everyone laughed. Shen Jintai looked at the camera, a bit nervous and excited, as he patted Yan Qiuchi’s arm and said to the owner: “He’s my boyfriend.”
Wang Siyi wasn’t shy during dinner as she kept asking about their relationship.
When did they meet? When did they get together? Why did they go on this show?
It felt like she was interviewing them on behalf of the program group and the netizens. Since they were on the program together, Shen Jintai gave her some face and answered her questions.
Suddenly, Yang Lizhi, who had been listening quietly on the sideline, raised her head and asked: “What do you like about him?”
“Speak well.” Yan Qiuchi said as he looked at Shen Jintai.
Shen Jintai drank some wine, causing his face and ears to flush. He gave a laugh and said: “I like everything. He’s perfect, don’t you think?”
Zheng Siqi and the others heckled: “Can you tell the truth?”
Shen Jintai smiled and said: “Really, except for being a bit too sappy*, there’s no other shortcomings!”
*Tired of crooked (腻歪) = Refers to feeling bored, disgusted, because of repetitive action or doing some intimate things between lovers and saying intimate words. || In this context, he’s saying Yan Qiuchi is very clingy and too lovey-dovey.
Zheng Siqi and the others made angry expression, acting as if they couldn’t believe his answer. Wang Siyi excitedly asked: “Is Brother Chi sappy? I can’t imagine it at all!”
Yan Qiuchi kept one arm across the back of Shen Jintai’s chair as he smiled shyly and touched his ear: “Did you drink too much?”
Yang Lizhi, who has always acted as an icy queen, softened her stance. She brushed her hair to the side and smile as she asked Yan Qiuchi: “Then President Yan, what do you like about Jintai?”
“Of course, it’s because I’m handsome!” Shen Jintai said.
“Don’t speak. Let President Yan answer.” Yang Lizhi smiled as she raised her wine glass.
Alcohol had loosened everyone up.
Yan Qiuchi looked at Shen Jintai and saw that his cheeks were flushed. Following Yan Qiuchi’s earlier response, Shen Jintai said: “Think about it caarefully and just say it.”
Yan Qiuchi said: “The first time I felt attracted to him was when he was filming <The East Palace is Coming>. I had a dream about him one night.”
Yan Qiuchi’s follow-up camera was in the corner. When he heard Yan Qiuchi spoke, he immediately zoomed in on him.
“I felt that he was a bit different from what I originally thought, and I wanted to get to know this person better. The more I got to him, the more frightened it made me feel, and the stronger I felt for him. In fact, mixed in is a bit of a fan’s love for an idol. I was his fan that was secretly chasing The East Palace at that time.”
“Then Brother Chi should be the most inspirational fan being able to sleep… as the first person ever to catch his idol!” After Tang Ye finished speaking, he laughed out loud at the “slip of the tongue” he made just now.
“I’m full of dog food today.” Yang Lizhi said.
When the meal was over, everyone went back to their respective residences. They first bid farewell to Wang Siyi and Tang Ye, then separated from Zheng Siqi and Yang Lizhi. In the end, it was only the two of them left, being followed by the camera.
Everything around town was basically closed and it was so quiet that the slightest sound of the wind could be heard. The stars were glowing brightly in the sky. Shen Jintai asked: “Did you really secretly chase <The East Palace is Coming>? I didn’t know.”
“There’s much you don’t know.” Yan Qiuchi said.
Shen Jintai said: “You’re really deceptive in appearance. I can’t tell what kind of person you are at all, but…”
“But what?” Yan Qiuchi asked.
Shen Jintai glanced back at the camera behind him, then covered the mic on his body with his hand before standing on his tiptoe slightly and leaned into Yan Qiuchi’s ear to whisper something. Yan Qiuchi smiled and said: “I still have my mic on.”
Shen Jintai was taken aback for a moment: “Fuck!” After speaking he realized he couldn’t say “fuck”.
Yan Qiuchi said: “It’s fine. They’ll censor it.”
Shen Jintai said: “But they probably recorded what I said just now.”
“It’s natural for the two of us to get along. After all we like each other.”
Shen Jintai smiled, then suddenly grabbed Yan Qiuchi’s hand and ran away. The two of them ran fast. The cameraman was holding onto heavy and expensive machinery, and there were rocks and such on the street, so he didn’t dare run too fast so he was quickly left behind. Shen Jintai turned his head and shouted: “Good night! See you tomorrow!”
Since they were going back, the two cameramen stopped chasing them. Seeing as they weren’t followed anymore, Shen Jintai stopped running. He turned off the mic on his body and reached out and turn off Yan Qiuchi’s mic as well.
“Now it’s possible to do something natural.” Shen Jintai said with a smile. As he said it, he kissed Yan Qiuchi on the lips.
Yan Qiuchi smiled and put his arms around his waist: “Let’s go back to the hotel. There’s no cameras there.”
Shen Jintai asked: “What do you want to do?”
“Do something natural of course.” Yan Qiuchi said.
The two kissed as soon as they entered their room. After holding back for so long, once it was released, it was like the sky was thunderous and the earth was on fire.
Shen Jintai said: “I seem to be falling more in love with you.”
“I can see it,” Yan Qiuchi said: “Being on this show was worth it.”
Shen Jintai used to be relatively passive. Yan Qiuchi had to grind hard for a long time if he wanted to sleep with him. Now, he felt that Shen Jintai desire for him was growing as his eyes would always light up whenever he looks at him.
As soon as Yan Qiuchi unbuttoned Shen Jintai’s shirt, he saw that Shen Jintai’s neck was completely flushed, due to the reward that was given to him. He would always turn red when he felt emotional, and right now he was particularly emotional.
Yan Qiuchi suddenly let go of him and said: “I’ll check again.”
He was worried that the crew would leave cameras or microphones in the room. There was a certain side of Shen Jintai that no one in the world could see or hear except for him. This was his gluttonous feast that belonged only to him and him alone.
