Chapter 200: Build a Love Nest [Extra: Bai Yueguang (9)]
Flood dies from floods, droughts die from droughts*.
*(涝的涝死,旱的旱死.) Metaphor referring to two extremes that are both bad.
Since Bai Qingquan met Shi Lei, his thoughts have been a bit flooded. Now that he saw the greasiness between Shen Jintai and Yan Qiuchi, what poked his heart the most was the line: “Husband”.
Wuwuwu, that word was simply the most exciting word in the heart of a young girl like him. He also wants a husband.
Suddenly, Shi Lie’s appearance came to his mind. His heart started fretting.
Zheng Siqi called the driver and said: “Let’s go back too. You can take my car. I’ll take you back first.”
“No, I’ll find someone to pick me up.”
Zheng Siqi couldn’t feel assured leaving Bai Qingquan alone as he also drank a lot tonight and was most likely drunk.
Bai Qingquan looked at his phone, thinking about who to call. Today was his birthday, a very special day. He didn’t know if Shi Lei had returned to Nancheng yet. Taking advantage of his drunken state, he called Shi Lei.
As the phone rang, he laid back down on the sofa. When the call connected, he asked: “Have you slept yet?”
“Have you returned to Nancheng?”
“No,” Shi Lei asked: “Have you been drinking?”
Bai Qingquan smiled and said: “Today’s my birthday, so I drank more than usual. I wanted to ask you to meet, but since you’re not in Nancheng, let’s make an appointment for another day.”
Zheng Siqi looked at him when he heard this.
“Today is your birthday?” Shi Lei asked.
Bai Qingquan: “Nn. I’ll hang up first. When you return, let’s set a time to meet.” He hung up the phone after speaking.
Zheng Siqi asked: “Who is it?”
“The senior I was talking about,” Bai Qingquan said.
Zheng Siqi didn’t ask any more questions, just said: “Let’s go, I’ll take you back first.”
Bai Qingquan got up.
Bai Qingquan has a house in Nancheng that he bought last year. The house was pretty empty and hasn’t been renovated since he prefers staying in hotels. After staying in them for so many years, he had grown accustomed to them.
After returning to the hotel, Bai Qingquan didn’t feel sleepy. He was too excited, and his body was hot. He stayed in a large suite and used one bedroom as storage that was filled with gifts from fans and some of his old belongings. He rummaged through the closet and searched for more than an hour before he found a down jacket.
Bosideng in those years was already a famous brand to him.
When he left his hometown, it was also winter. He wore this down jacket. Because of his unique feelings, he had never thrown it away. He hanged it up together with his denim jacket… the first one he bought with the money that he made. These two jackets have special significance to him, so he usually put them together.
He tried on the down jacket and felt it was a bit small.
He continued to grow until he was about 20. After becoming a star, his figure was strictly managed. Although he was still thin, his shoulders were wider. This jacket used to be big on him, but now it had become a small, padded jacket.
He stood in front of the full-length mirror and looked at himself in the mirror, thinking that many years ago, he put on this down jacket for the first time and photographed his reflection from the mirror of the school office building.
What this jacket warm was not his body but his heart. The memories resurface. He really likes Shi Lei.
Shi Lei didn’t know that today was Bai Qingquan’s birthday. He never found out when they were in school together. Later, after Bai Qingquan became popular, he saw his official birthday online and thought that was his real birthday.
He drove to Nancheng wanting to get there before midnight and meet with Bai Qinquan. However, Nancheng was a bit far from Xichuan County. He had just arrived at the outer ring of Nancheng and it was already past midnight.
Most likely Bai Qingquan had fallen asleep by now. He’ll always remember this day, December 11th, the month and date of Bai Qingquan’s birthday for rest of his life.
The house he bought in Nancheng last year was renovated. It was a villa, but the place was a bit remote that provided a quiet and nice environment. It was close to the Yangtze River and Qiuming Mountain.
It was already late at night when he arrived home. After entering the house, he laid down on the sofa, looking at his phone before falling asleep. When he woke up the next morning, he picked up his phone and glance at it. He saw a message from Bai Qingquan and immediately sat up.
Bai Qingquan sent a message and said: [I bought a new house recently, but it’s pretty empty. I heard that decorations are most suitable for spring and autumn. I plan to start decorating after New Year’s when the weather is warm. Would this old classmate like to help out?]
Shi Lei wiped his face, almost thinking that he was dreaming. He immediately called Bai Qingquan as he stood up from the sofa. No one answered.
He hurried to reply to Bai Qingquan’s message, but before he could finish typing, Bai Qingquan had called him back.
Bai Qingquan probably had just woken up. His voice was hoarse but there was hint of a smile as he said: “Good morning.”
“Morning,” Shi Lei said: “I just saw your message.”
“I sent it in the middle of the night,” Bai Qingquan asked: “How about it? Will your company want to do it?”
“Will,” Shi Lei was too anxious so he slow down and added: “We would like to.”
Bai Qingquan: “Nn. I plan on renovating in the new year. You can tell me when the construction will start.”
“Before the official renovation, there’s still a lot of preparatory work. In this way, it depends on when you have time. Let’s meet and chat. You can also come to our company to take a look. Our company has four branches in Nancheng and we provide special cars to pick you up an drop you off.”
Bai Qingquan said: “Nn. Then I’ll look at my schedule.”
After hanging up the phone, Shi Lei immediately became fierce. His opportunity has arrived.
He thought that his social circle and Bai Qingquan’s did not overlap at all. Just from trying to meet with Bai Qingquan alone, he probably would only be able to meet with him a few times a year. Bai Qingquan’s a big star and busy with work. Needless to say, it would be inconvenient for him to go out. Now he had a better excuse to meet Bai Qingquan and considering it’s Bai Qingquan’s home, it’ll most likely be renovated more luxurious than the average person and the home must be quite larger as well. It’s estimated that it’ll take a least half a year from early construction to completion.
This must be an opportunity granted to him by God. Even if he wasn’t worthy, he’ll have to try. If he doesn’t make his move, he’ll regret it for the rest of his life.
The headquarters of Livable Decoration was in Nancheng new district, close to one of the largest shopping malls in the area. Since it was close to New Year’s, there were fewer people remodeling so his business was a bit leisurely at this time. Xiao Fang sat at the front desk and found that their boss had seem rejuvenated since he returned to his hometown. He also said that this year’s performance was good and would give out awards after their New Year’s annual meeting.
“Did you know that the boss and Bai Qingquan are from the same hometown?”
“The boss went back to see him this time, because I saw the news that Bai Qingquan had returned to his hometown in Xichuan County to participate in the celebration of his alma mater. Videos have appeared online!”
“He likes Bai Qingquan. Do you still have any questions? His WeChat avatar is Bai Qingquan!”
“I always thought the boss liked Shen Jintai.”
“What kind of eyes do you have? It’s clearly the avatar is Zhou Zing. He’s the one that wears white clothes, while Li Xu’s is red.”
“It seems that the boss is really chasing stars. I really can’t believe that a rough old man like him would chase stars. It seems that the boss isn’t really straight if he’s chasing Bai Qingquan.”
“That’s true. Only some of the straight men around me like Shen Jintai, but there’s no straight guys that likes Bai Qingquan. To straight men they generally don’t like his dainty face.”
“The boss is also from Xichuan County. Maybe he and Bai Qingquan have known each other before.”
“What should I do? Last time my best friend came to the company to see me and asked if I could connect her to the boss.”
“I can’t see that the boss having such a good relationship with women. This is the first one to chase him. I thought girls generally don’t like his type.”
“Handsome, rich, and young. This is the kind of sweet pie that everyone wants to buy in the marriage market, okay?”
Xiao Fang’s face turned slightly red as she listened to the gossip around.
In fact, she has always had a crush on Shi Lei. The sisters around her were only interested in the kind of fresh meat from Japan or South Korea, but she likes the tall, upright, and manly look of her boss. While he’s not particularly good-looking, he was intriguing, rough, but not rustic. At the age around 26, he was just right.
Does he like men? As she was thinking about it, Shi Lei came out of the office.
Their boss was dressed professionally, with his crew cut, and full suit, with a white shirt on. He had a cigarette in his mouth as he walked out tying his tie up, as if he was in a hurry.
“Then you wait, I will be there soon.”
Xiao Fang watched him go out, and silently looked at his back again. She really loves this kind of semi-homely and semi-rough temperament the exuded manliness from inside out.
She was staring blankly at him when she suddenly saw their boss making a phone call as he walked across the road. Then she saw a young man wearing a hat and mask coming out of a luxury car.
It was close to a shopping mall, so the scene was lively with many people coming and going. Their boss said a few words to the man and led him back towards their office. When he was about to cross the road, a car drove past them. Shi Lei stretched out his arm and gently hugged the man’s waist, looking very protective.
Their boss was a big coarse man. While not arrogant, he was very inattentive. Let alone male employees, even with female employees, he had never shown much consideration and care like the person she was witnessing now.
She thought it must be an important customer, so she hurriedly stood straight up with a smile as Shi Lei and the other person came in. She bowed and greeted: “Welcome.”
“Please come in,” Shi Lei said and turned his head: “Let’s talk in my office.”
His voice didn’t seem to be like usual. It was too gentle and soft.
The young man smiled at Xiao Fang. Although he only showed a pair of eyes, she could tell that he’s a handsome guy. His eyes were beautiful and had an inexplicable sense of familiarity.
The man went into the office and stay for more than half an hour. In the middle, Shi Lei came out to get coffee. Xiao Fang offered to help but he declined and said: “I’ll do it.”
Everyone gazed fell onto the office as they secretly gossip. Their boss has never been so gentle! They felt that this customer was not simple. For their boss to be this attentive, it must be a really big customer!
After another while, Shi Lei opened the door: “Wang Ying.”
Wang Ying was the female designer of their company. She immediately responded when she heard his call: “Yes.”
“Come in for a bit,” Shi Lei said.
Wang Ying went in for a long time and when she came out, her face was completely red and she couldn’t help stomping her feet: “Ahhhhhhhh!”
“What’s the matter, Sister Wang?”
“What kind of big client is in there?”
“I’m going to design a house for a big star. Ahhhhhhhhhh!”
“What?!” Everyone said in unison.
Wang Ying glanced back secretly, suppressing her voice, but she couldn’t suppress her excitement: “It’s Bai Qingquan who’s in there with the boss!”
The author has something to say：
Build a love nest together, and once the nest is built, you can love in it as much as you like.
Kinky Thoughts: Shi Lei subtly adding to the design all of Bai Qingquan’s alt requirements that is suitable for doing “things”.
Holy shit this is chapter 200. Another milestone completed.
