Chapter 195: Fate [Extra: Bai Yueguang (4)]
The two of them went from the playground to the boiler room, then passed through the dormitory and returned to the school gate. It was almost noon by the time they arrived at the gate. As the two were about to separate, Shi Lei suddenly asked: “Are you free at noon? I would like to invite you to lunch.”
“Not at noon. I have already made an appointment with the principal and the others.” Bai Qingquan said: “Maybe in the evening, I might be free.”
It’s unlikely that he’ll be free in the evening. He’s finally returned so he’ll have to have a meal with his uncle and aunt. After attending the school celebration at noon tomorrow, he’ll return to Nancheng for his birthday party. His itinerary was quite stressful.
However, once he’s back in Nancheng, he would be fine. He had just finished filming a new drama and was currently in his rest period.
Shi Lei said: “Nn. Where are you going now?”
“Back to the hotel.”
“Then I’ll take you there.”
“No, it’s just at the People’s Square and it’s only a few steps away.”
Shi Lei still insisted and said: “I will send you.” After speaking, he went to get his car.
Bai Qingquan saw an Audi in the parking lot lights turned on and saw Shi Lei going in and driving the car towards him.
Bai Qingquan wasn’t polite and directly opened the door on the passenger side. He entered with a smile and asked: “Does the passenger seat have a master? May I sit in it?”
Shi Lei said: “I have always been single.”
Bai Qingquan sat up, closed the door with a bang, and took off his mask.
He’s been single all this time.
He put his mask in his pocket and adjusted the seat a little. The car looked very new and was considered a more expensive model from the Audi brand. As soon as he sat down, he noticed Shi Lei leaning towards him. He was taken aback and hurriedly stretched out his arm only to find that Shi Lei was buckling him in for him.
“I’ll do it myself,” He fastened his seat belt as he said it.
Shi Lei smelled the warm and light fragrance coming from Bai Qingquan’s body and it only made his heart become more passionate. He turned forward and started to drive. This was all like a dream. The person who he could only see on the television screen was now sitting on the passenger seat of his car. It was exciting and unreal.
He sent Bai Qingquan to the entrance of the hotel. Bai Qingquan unbuttoned his seatbelt and said: “Thank you.”
His voice was as gentle as ever, his appearance was even more fair and beautiful. The word temperament was simply tailored for him.
“You’re welcome,” Shi Lei said.
“Then I’m going now. I’ll contact you when I have time,” Bai Qingquan opened the car door.
“Then I’ll call you tonight,” Shi Lei said.
Bai Qingquan realized that he was referring to dinner plans tonight, so he gave a vague response and got out and left the car.
Shi Lei kept watching him go before he left. When Bai Qingquan got to the entrance of the hotel door, he glanced back at him.
Shi Lei drove the car towards an intersection before parking it on the side of the road. He got out of the car, leaned against a tree and started to smoke. He didn’t know if it was because of the cold or something else. For a while, his hand was shaking uncontrollably as he held the cigarette in his hand and was rubbing his chin with his thumb, only to find that there were stubbles there and he hadn’t shaved it.
He suddenly felt that Bai Qingquan was not as far from him as he imagined. Now, even if he was a big star, he could still reach him in reality. Compared to when they were teenagers, it seemed that there wasn’t much difference. Thinking back and forth, it seems that the possibly of catching him was within reach.
The most tormenting thing is that before there was no hope, but now there was another possibility and it was this possibility that gave him a single thread of hope. If he didn’t try his best, he’ll regret it for the rest of his life.
At least Bai Qingquan likes men.
As soon as Bai Qingquan entered the hotel room, he immediately took out his phone and called Shen Jintai.
“Hurry up, hurry up, tell me!” Shen Jintai said excitedly.
“Sister, I didn’t know you have time to gossip!”
“Don’t dawdle. Tell me quickly,” Shen Jintai asked: “Tell me how you met and what happened. Don’t leave out any details!”
Bai Qingquan smiled as he laid down on the sofa and started recounting the moment the two met.
After only a few words, Shen Jintai interrupted him: “Is it really a coincidence? Why do I get the feeling that he was waiting for you?”
“It was on a whim that I decided to visit the school. Everyone knows that I’ll only be there tomorrow to participate in the school celebration. How could he have known in advance?”
Shen Jintai said: “If he is waiting for you, I feel that he still likes you. If he is not waiting for you, it’s just a coincidence. Holy shit, what kind of fate is this?”
Bai Qingquan said: “Seeing him suddenly, I really felt a little heartbroken. He is much more handsome than when we were in school. Super handsome and much taller than before.”
“You can tell by looking at the back.” Shen Jintai said.
Bai Qingquan continued to talk, and finally said: “When I got in the car, I tested him. Guess what he said?”
“He said he has always been single.” Bai Qingquan deliberately exaggerated the word “always”.
Shen Jintai was excited when he heard it: “This guy sounds like a schemer. What do you think? Is he interested in you?”
Bai Qingquan said: “It’s possible.”
Bai Qingquan’s face was a little red: “I think so. He snuck peeks at me and I pretended to be unaware, but it’s also possible that because I’m a star now, ordinary people will act like this when they see a star.”
“What about you, do you like him?”
Bai Qingquan said: “It’s impossible for me and him, right?”
It’s not a question of whether they are worthy or not, but he couldn’t imagine what it would be like for the two of them to fall in love. He has never been in a relationship, but the people he fantasized about recently have all been rich second generations or big stars. It’s not that he valued money when looking for a partner. He just had a girly heart when he’s in love, and he didn’t think he could meet other people besides the industry that he’s in. His circle is full of people related to the entertainment industry.
He and Shi Lei are exactly two people from different worlds.
“He is different from Siqi and President Yan,” As he said it, Shi Lei’s appearance came in his mind. He felt that this person had a strong sexual charm. But he wanted to fall in love, not just sex. If he didn’t have that former condition, he could easily find someone to just sleep with. Unfortunately, he couldn’t find a high quality person that fit his bill.
“I really didn’t expect that you would meet him when you went back this time.” Shen Jintai said emotionally.
“Indeed,” Bai Qingquan didn’t expect it himself: “But I recognized him from a glance, even though I haven’t seen him for so many years.”
Truthfully, he had liked Shi Lei in the beginning, but at that time he wasn’t courageous and knew too little. Later, when he realized that he had liked hm, Shi Lei was no longer by his side.
For several years, he always remembered this boy from time to time. The first person he met in the real world was the same as him, and it was also the first confession he received from a boy in his life. How could it be easy to forget?
It was the love of youth. It was light and lasting, as if it could linger in his heart for a lifetime. It may not be considered loved, but it was still touching. It belongs to the love that only exists when you’re a teenager, not an adult.
When he changed his name for his debut, the company asked him to pick out a few names by himself. He picked out three, of which, Bai Qingquan was one of them.
The bright moon shone among the pines, and the clear springs and stones flowed up.
He selected his favorite line from an ancient poem that contained the characters that had Qingquan in it.
Later, when his company chose this name, they said that it was a good name and he will definitely become very popular if he use this name to walk in the entertainment industry.
This was truly fate.
When he became a big star, he was loved by thousands, both male and female, and had received many confessions, but all he could remember was that misty morning many years ago, a slacker with a bag over his shoulder had asked him in a domineering tone: “Bai Shu, would you like to fall in love with me?”
In fact, before Shi Lei left, he had followed him once. At that time, he hadn’t seen Shi Lei for a while. He only heard rumors about his fighting, his father imprisonment, and his mother’s illness. His heart was heavy, and he felt Shi Lei was very pitiful.
It wasn’t abnormal to like him.
Then one night, he felt as if someone was following him from a distance. His heart moved slightly. He wanted to turn back but didn’t dare turn back. After hesitating for a long time, he planned to turn around and apologize to Shi Lei. To tell him that he wasn’t a prevent and gently and solemnly apologize to him.
But when he turned around, he no longer saw the person following him. He ran back a few steps panting and looked around, but he didn’t see Shi Lei, only the sight of the first snow that had started to fall.
The snow fell very early that year and it was also heavy as it covered his shoulders.
Shi Lei had left his hometown that day. He wanted to take another look at the person he admired before the sixteen-year-old picked up his bag and resolutely embarked towards his job.
The author has something to say：
Sishi is a strait-laced man who is rough and silent on the outside and wild on the inside and loves his wife. Two types of good husbands for these good sisters.
Juvenile love is really moving, and consistency is even more rare.
Kinky Thoughts: Ahhhh reading about their past is so bittersweet.
