Chapter 204: Confirmed Relationship [Bai Yueguang Extra (13)]
Shen Jintai, Zheng Siqi, and Wei Ge were already in the private room of the bar that had piles of alcohol on the table. Shen Jintai wanted to drink but Bai Qingquan stopped him: “Don’t drink now or you’ll be drunk before he even arrives.”
“I won’t drink too much. I have to return to the crew for filming tomorrow,” Shen Jintai said: “We also have Wei Ge here.”
Qian Wei was unhappy, because he didn’t know about the affair regarding Shi Lei until today. He didn’t know what Shen Jintai and Zheng Siqi knew about it, nor did he know as much as they did. He had been following Bai Qingquan for several years, so it could be said that he had been his most ardent supporter, yet Bai Qingquan had treated him like this. He should be the closest to Bai Qingquan!
And this Shi Lei. What the fuck? He didn’t even graduate from junior high, yet he was a little boss of a decoration company? Even if he grows up to look like Pan’an* and Song Yu*, he’ll still not be worthy of Bai Qingquan.
*Pan’an (潘安) = A literary leader in Western Jin and was referred to as the most beautiful man in ancient times.
*Song Yu (宋玉) = Chinese poet of the late Warring States Period.
He plans to outdrink this Shi Lei tonight and embarrass him. This man was either here for fame or wealth. After all, in the entertainment industry this kind of thing was quite common. Too often he’d seen female celebrities get carried away by love and gets cheated by some scumbag. With Shi Lei’s identity and background, it doesn’t seem that he’s any better than those types of scumbags.
“He’s here,” Bai Qingquan got up as he picked up his phone: “I’ll pick him up.”
“You sit down,” Qian Wei got up and said: “I’ll go.”
“I told him our private room number. You can pick him up in the hallway.”
Qian Wei went out. As soon as he left the door, he saw a waiter leading a tall man over. From a glance, his appearance was much lower than his expectation, about as good as your average passersby. The person looked energetic, but had a ruffian look to him. With a band-aid on his chin, it only adds to his look that can cause people to worry more.
Shi Lei nodded.
“I’m Qian Wei,” He stretched out his hand.
Shi Lei shook his hand.
“They are all in there. Come in.”
As soon as he turned around, he saw that Bai Qingquan had opened the door and poked his head out to look.
When Shi Lei entered, he saw several familiar faces. Shen Jintai and Zheng Siqi were now all big stars who are widely popular.
Shen Jintai took the lead and stretched out his hand: “Hello, we’re good friends of Qingquan. Do you still need an introduction?”
Shi Lei shook his hand: “I know you all.”
Zheng Siqi also shook his hand.
“Sit down. What do you want to drink? We have all kinds of alcohol.” Qian Wei said.
Shi Lei sat down on the sofa, and Bai Qingquan sat down beside him, acting a bit shy. He felt like he was leading his partner to meet his parents for the first time, so he was nervous, and it was estimated that Shi Lei was also the same.
“Xiao Bai, do you want to drink?” Zheng Siqi said: “If you’re not drinking, move aside.”
Bai Qingquan smiled, then got up and sat opposite of them.
“Well, Jintai is filming so it’s rare to have him back. We just made a last-minute appointment,” Bai Qingquan said with a smile: “Have you eaten yet? Would you like something to eat?”
“I’ve already ate,” Shi Lei said.
Qian Wei pretended to not know anything and began his “interview”. How old was he? What was his occupation? Where was he from? How did he meet Bai Qingquan?
As they chatted, they started to drink. Qian Wei had followed Bai Qingquan into battle. There was a set of various unique alcohol on the table. Shi Lei started from scratch, so he wasn’t a vegetarian. By the time they had a few glasses, Qian Wei realized that he had encountered a tough opponent. However, Shi Lei behave sincerely and didn’t drink any of the unique drinks.
These were all Bai Qingquan’s friends, thus if he wanted to be together with Bai Qingquan, these people have to be taken down.
Qian Wei had noticed this and pretended to be oblivious and wanted to pour him more.
When Shen Jintai was halfway done with his drink, he got up to go to the bathroom. Bai Qingquan followed him quietly and as they closed the door he asked: “What do you think?”
“It’s okay. He doesn’t look greasy,” Shen Jintai said.
“Isn’t he special?”
Shen Jintai smiled and said: “A bit rough.”
He felt that Shi Lei was indeed not bad, but compared with Bai Qingquan’s condition, he was still lacking.
“When he laughs, it makes him seem like a ruffian that gives out a bad vibe,” Shen Jintai said.
“He’s not bad himself.”
“Wait until Qian Wei gets him drunk before we start questioning him,” Shen Jintai said: “Don’t blame us for everything. We’re doing it for your own good.”
On this matter, it was rare that he agreed with Qian Wei and Zheng Siqi with this point of view. Everyone felt that Bai Qingquan was looking for his partner too suddenly, so it was very risky.
Shen Jintai said: “Are you going back? I’m going to pee.”
Bai Qingquan suddenly said: “I don’t know how big he is.”
Shen Jintai: “…”
He smiled and looked at Bai Qingquan: “It should be big enough.”
Bai Qingquan smiled, his face a little red: “He has thick, long fingers and a big nose. It shouldn’t be so simple, right?”
“Then if he drinks too much later, you can follow him if he goes to the bathroom and take a peek.”
“You still know how to be embarrassed?” Shen Jintai said.
Bai Qingquan said: “What should I do? I feel like I’m falling for him more and more.”
When the two of them returned from the bathroom, they saw that Zheng Siqi was toasting with Shi Lei. When Zheng Siqi saw Shen Jintai, he said: “Your phone keeps ringing. It’s from President Yan.”
Shen Jintai quickly took the phone, went back to the bathroom, and called Yan Qiuchi.
“I heard you are back?” Yan Qiuchi asked: “Where are you?”
“Did you put a spy by my side?” Shen Jintai said: “Xiao Bai and I are at a bar.”
“Are you being disobedient again? Drinking again?”
“I’m not drinking this time. We’re here to test Xiao Bai’s person.”
He told Yan Qiuchi the ins and outs, and Yan Qiuchi said: “Your thoughts?”
“Alcohol will show one’s true character,” Shen Jintai said.
Yan Qiuchi said: “Send me the address and I’ll come pick you up.”
“You can come help us keep on eye on him,” Shen Jintai said.
After Yan Qiuchi hung up the phone, he continued to work. After finishing the work at hand, he told his assistant, and then drove to pick up Shen Jintai.
When arrived in the private room, he saw that Qian Wei was completely drunk as he took Shi Lei’s hand and said with tears in his eyes: “Brother, we are Xiao Bai… You can’t bully him… Otherwise, brother, I won’t spare you.”
Yan Qiuchi: “…”
Seeing him coming in, Shen Jintai quickly stood up and waved his hand.
Bai Qingquan and Zheng Siqi were both watching Qian Wei’s behavior. When they saw Yan Qiuchi come in, they instantly got serious and got up to greet him.
Yan Qiuchi sat down beside Shen Jintai. When Shi Lei saw him, he was about to get up, but Qian Wei grabbed his hand and glanced at Yan Qiuchi with a smile on his face: “Yan… President Yan is here.”
“This is Jintai’s partner,” Bai Qingquan said.
Shi Lei shook Yan Qiuchi’s hand. Yan Qiuchi looked at Shi Lei and found that the other party’s face was only slightly red. He has heard that Qian Wei’s could drink very well, but to able to outdrink even him, this shows that Shi Lei was quite capable of handling his liquor.
“President Yan…” Zheng Siqi was a little restrained. He was more timid around Yan Qiuchi: “President Yan, do you want a drink?”
Without waiting for Yan Qiuchi to speak, Shen Jintai said: “He can’t drink. He’s driving.”
When Yan Qiuchi came, Qian Wei calmed down and sat there quietly until he fell asleep. Yan Qiuchi sat down and chatted with Shi Lei for a while when suddenly Qian Wei got up and ran to the bathroom to puke.
When he returned, everyone was ready to head back. Although Shi Lei didn’t drink too much, he still had questions to answer and his attitude was very sincere, leaving a good impression of him on Zheng Siqi and Shen Jintai.
However, they still told Bai Qingquan to take his time and get to know him better.
“Don’t be fooled into bed by him with just a few words,” Shen Jintai said.
Bai Qingquan said: “How can I be tricked into going to bed so easily.”
Bai Qingquan is very confident in himself. He wasn’t a messy person. It’ll take a least a few months before they determine their relationship. As for physical activities in bed, that’ll take at least half a year.
When he got into the car, Shen Jintai immediately asked Yan Qiuchi’s opinion on Shi Lei.
Yan Qiuchi said: “He’s seen through this little trick of yours a long time ago. He’s smart but he was pretending to be stupid.”
From what he saw, he thought Shi Lei was okay. He’ll need more contact with him to get more details. From a selfish point of few, he hopes that Bai Qingquan would fall in love quickly. He felt the relationship between Shen Jintai and Bai Qingquan was too close. They are said to be sisters, but they are not the kind of sisters who would lie in bed together and nothing would happen. Neither of them was that much of a shou, so he still had a sense of defense against them.
But seeing Shi Lei today, he was relieved a lot. Bai Qingquan’s type turned out to be like this, which was quite different from Shen Jintai.
Qian Wei, who had threatened to outdrink Shi Lei beforehand, was completely plastered when he was put in the car. Bai Qingquan deliberately called Xiao Feng over to send him off. Qian Wei and Shi Lei seemed to have the same temperament. When he left, he laid in the car drunkenly and said: “Another day… let’s go drinking, again… buddy.”
His true temperament had flared up.
Shi Lei smiled and closed the car door and turned to look back at Bai Qingquan and Zheng Siqi standing together, whispering to each other. He didn’t interrupt, but simply stood next to Bai Qingquan. As Zheng Siqi talked, he put his hand on Bai Qingquan’s shoulder and finally hugged him, making Shi Lei jealous.
It wasn’t entirely correct to say jealous as it was also mixed with a low self-esteem. These were friends of Bai Qinquan. Yan Qiuchi, Shen Jintai, and Zheng Siqi, were too excellent. They were richer, and more handsome than he was.
The only he was better at than these people was that he loves Bai Qingquan more than anyone else.
Seeing that Zheng Siqi was about to leave, Shi Lei stepped forward. After sending him off, the two was left by themselves.
Bai Qingquan smiled and said: “Are you okay?”
“A little dizzy,” Shi Lei said.
“You have drunk well enough. It’s the first time I have seen Wei Ge drunk. How much can you drink?”
“I came on an empty stomach today, or I could still drink some more,” Shi Lei said.
“You haven’t eaten?”
Shi Lei smiled and said: “No, I came over as soon as I received your call.”
“Then I’ll treat you to a meal.”
Shi Lei nodded.
After only taking a few steps, he suddenly staggered. Bai Qingquan hurriedly supported him as he rested his head on Bai Qingquan’s shoulder.
Despite wearing a mask, Bai Qingquan stilled smelled the strong scent of alcohol on Shi Lei’s body. His lips were moist, and he rubbed them against his ears, causing Bai Qingquan to shrink his neck and take a step back.
When he has entered earlier tonight and saw Bai Qingquan’s friends, Shi Lei was nervous but also very happy. Bai Qingquan had asked his friends to check him out, which indicated that he was making a move. His heart had been hanging all night, and now he was about to let it go.
Bai Qingquan held him and said softly: “Be careful.”
The alcohol had been jumping around in his lower abdomen. Considering that they were still out in public, Shi Lei got up and asked: “What do you want to eat?”
Bai Qingquan’s face flushed slightly, and he lowered his head to look at his phone. They decided to go to the restaurant where the two had went yesterday.
Perhaps it was because he was drinking, but Shi Lei’s wheat-colored skin seemed a little bit flush as he kept looking at him with a damp smile.
Bai Qingquan discovered that Shi Lei not only could drink, but he also could eat. He ate heavily as much as he drunk.
“You’re not eating?”
Bai Qingquan said: “I don’t usually eat much at night in order to lose weight.”
“You’re so thin, but you still need lose weight?” Shi Lei asked.
“I look fat on camera,” Bai Qingquan said as he ate his fruit salad.
“I think you are good-looking enough,” Shi Lei said.
“How long has it been since you ate?”
Shi Lei ate a bit too fiercely.
“I haven’t eaten for almost an entire day.”
Perhaps it was due to drinking a bit too much, but Shi Lei had let himself go. His rough and ruffian persona came out. After finishing his meal, he took out a cigarette and looked at Bai Qingquan.
“You can smoke,” Bai Qingquan said.
Shi Lei lit the cigarette, took a puff, then slowly exhale the smoke, looking extremely ruffian. While he didn’t drink anymore, his complexion became redder than before he had entered the restaurant. His ears were red, and his forehead was sweaty. He stretched out his hand and unbuttoned his shirt, revealing a small piece of his tanned chest.
“Have you thought about it?” Shi Lei asked him suddenly.
Bai Qingquan was taken aback for a moment and said: “What?”
“About the two of us,” Shi Lei said.
Bai Qingquan felt that he shouldn’t have invited Shi Lei to a meal after they had just been drinking. Shi Lei was obviously drunk. His eyes seemed a little red, as he leaned his wrist against the table and flicked the cigarette in his hand. The soot shook off with sporadic spark. He raised his nose, then pinched the remaining half of the cigarette as he took in a deep breath and said: “I know I wasn’t worthy for you before, and now I’m even less worthy for you, but my heart is true to you. If there’s anyone in this world who loves you more than me, I’ll stand aside and leave you alone.”
Bai Qingquan wanted to laugh but held back.
“If you’ll be with me, I’ll treat you well for the rest of my life.”
Bai Qingquan has never encountered such a passionate confession. Not to mention that this confession came from a man who he had a good impression of. This only cause more turmoil in his longing heart. He just felt that things were moving too fast. His relationship with Shi Lei might not even last for 24 hours. Shen Jintai and Zheng Siqi has told him to take it slow when they left.
“I see,” he said.
Shi Lei reached out to grab his hand. Bai Qingquan wanted to draw his hand back, but Shi Lei grabbed it and looked at him with a wild look in his eyes.
“I said let me think about it,” Bai Qingquan said. As soon as Shi Lei’s hand was loosened, he immediately took it back, and then stood up.
After the meal was over, it was time for him to head back. He felt that Shi Lei’s intoxication might take over and if he stayed any longer, he might be kissed again.
When he was about to put on his mask, he suddenly realized that he had just eaten and hadn’t wiped his lips, so he stretched out his hand to take a napkin off the table. Just as he was about to wipe his mouth, Shi Lei suddenly grabbed him again and wrapped his arms around his thin waist with his large hands and embraced him in his arms.
Bai Qingquan couldn’t resist such a domineering man and felt his legs going soft.
“Don’t think about it. Just try it with me,” Shi Lei said: “Don’t torture me.”
They were too close. The scent of smoke, alcohol, and masculinity filled his nose.
“I really love you. In the past eight years, there has not been a day where I haven’t missed you.”
Bai Qingquan blushed as he lowered his head. Shi Lei also lowered his head as he threw the cigarette in his hands away and reached out to hold Bai Qingquan’s cheek and slightly force Bai Qingquan to look up at him.
‘My god,’ Bai Qingquan thought silently: ‘Too good.’
He really couldn’t stand it anymore. He pressed his hand back on the table, leaned back, and accidently knocked down the teacup with his palm. With a crash, the tea flowed out spilling tea leaves everywhere as it dripped down from the table slowly descending to the floor.
With another crash, his hand had knocked down the chopsticks off the plate as he was quickly supported by Shi Lei who hugged him into his arms.
Shi Lei was taller and wider than him that he could cover him completely. In this hot summer night, with the two of them only wearing a white t-shirt, they stuck together hotly feeling, the heat from each other’s body temperature.
“Be my boyfriend?” Shi Lei asked.
The two of them were too close that the bridge of their noses rubbed against each other.
“Hm?” Shi Lei hummed.
This “hm” went straight to Bai Qingquan’s heart. This was a man that was strong and fierce that was now pleading to him. The closer he got, the stranger he felt when he looked at Shi Lie. From afar, he had thought Shi Lei looked similar to when he was a teenager, but being up close now and looking more thoroughly, he looked very different. The strangeness was particularly strong that it heightened his sense of excitement and fear. He was actually kiss by a man who he hadn’t seen for a long time, and now has forcefully fallen in love with him.
All he could do was gave out an “Un”, agreeing to the proposal.
Shi Lei was startled before ecstasy slowly appeared on his face. His mouth grinned as he kissed Bai Qingquan’s forehead and cheeks.
While Bai Qingquan claimed himself to be ostentatious, in actuality he was quite shy. He shrunk his head and put his arms around his chest, as if in self-defense. The cowardice and innocence he showed only made Shi Lei’s eye burn with more passion. His love burned even hotter making him feel more uncomfortable, so he held onto Bai Qingquan’s face and kissed him fiercely again.
Bai Qingquan had always thought he had good kissing skills, but facts have proven him otherwise. There was no way he could match Shi Lei’s passionate kiss. It came too strong, and he quite liked it, because the young Shi Lei had always been hiding in his heart.
After Shi Lei kissed his mouth, he took his hand and kissed it, pecking the back of it constantly, but kept looking directly in his eyes. Bai Qingquan had never seen such passionate love in his life. He found that Shi Lei truly loved him, was infatuated with him, and had longed for him.
This made him excited. It felt refreshing to be loved so passionately by someone.
The author has something to say:
There is something even more refreshing.

I would agree in a fraction of a second too! He’s too good!
I can’t blame BQQ’s friends for wanting to be cautious. BQQ is a very sensitive person, with zero relationship experience, often showing low self-esteem, yearning for affection and validation, and in a precarious position due to his fame. For all they know, SL could be love bombing him and BQQ would be a relatively easy prey because of his circumstances.
Also, 25 is not really an age of emotional maturity. In fact, as our brains keep developing until 25 (or even later), that is the earliest age where we can consider someone able to make “responsible choices”. Of course, elements like past trauma or low confidence can also affect a person’s ability to judge, making them more vulnerable than the average.
