Warning Warning Warning… Read below before proceeding
The extra between Yan Yaoxuan x Shan Cheng has dubious consent issues in terms of their relationship. While there is no rape, and consent is given when they do have sex, there is coercion and force used in the beginning that basically forces Yan Yaoxuan into dating Shan Cheng. Their relationship starts off pretty toxic and honestly speaking, their relationship has more red flags than the country this novel was written in. If this is not your thing, I strongly suggest you do not read it and skip the entire extras surrounding them and read the final chapter when it’s released, which is chapter 233.
Chapter 219: First Meeting [Extra: Yao Cheng (1)]
The story of Yan Yaoxuan and Shan Cheng has to be told a long, long time ago.
Yan Yaoxuan had always felt very miserable. His father, Yan Tiefeng, was rarely at home and would only come back occasionally. He was also very strict with him. As for his mother, Fang Fengmei, she was not a caring or meticulous mother. He was essentially raised by his brother, Yan Qiuchi, since he was a child.
However, a large part of his sorrows comes from this brother.
Yan Qiuchi is a famous, outstanding representative of the second generation of the wealthy in Nancheng. He has absolute aura in both the Yan and Fang side of the family. He was their greatest hope and not only was he excellent, but he was also handsome, has a good figure, tall… In short, besides being a bit cold, he was almost perfect.
With such a brother to make comparisons to, Yan Yaoxuan was just mediocre. As a result, he was forcibly painted as a dandy who couldn’t amount to anything. This eventually led him to completely give up on himself. No matter how hard he tried to compete with his older brother, it was like going against the will of heaven.
What made things even worse was the person that he had a crush on also liked his brother. Just the name Shen Jintai would make his heart beat faster when he thought of it.
He didn’t know whether their families have discussed it first before coming up with their name but, Jintai, Yaoxuan, and Qiuchi all looked like a family, but he felt that his name was actually the best match for Shen Jintai. They were both bright and sunny, unlike his brother, who’s name is just like his personality, cold*.
Clarity: Yaoxuan (耀轩) translate to shining [Yao] (耀) pavilion [Xuan] (轩). As explained before, Jintai translates to gold [Jin] (金) tower [Tai] (台). This is why Yan Yaoxuan believes his name is more fitting to be with Shen Jintai (A shining pavilion and golden tower) vs Yan Qiuchi, autumn [Qiu] (秋) pool/pond [Chi] (池). The reason why their names seem to be like a “family” is because it’s like a group of things that belongs in one of those temples/historical site where it holds pavilions, towers, and ponds.
However, Shen Jintai was obsessed with his brother to the point where the entire world knew that he had gave up on his career when he was at the height of his popularity for him.
Even for a dandy like him, he felt that withdrawing from the circle was quite befuddling and he had a lovesick brain. Still, Shen Jintai was the one that he secretly loved.
After so many years, his secret love had accumulated for a long time that it eventually made him blind. He felt that no matter how stupid Shen Jintai was, how many fans he had lost, and how many people have laughed and made fun of him, in his heart, Shen Jintai was still the best.
This love was buried deep in his heart, and it only made him feel that he was really weak. He only dared to secretly love him while putting on a front that he was just a fan of Shen Jintai.
Eventually from his secret love came his confession, and rejection. He had expected it, so truthfully, he didn’t feel that sad about it. It was always like this. He won’t be too sad about it so he won’t stop secretly falling in love again with him.
As long as Shen Jintai doesn’t fall in love, he won’t give up. That was until… he discovered that his brother who had always hated Shen Jintai, had suddenly became fragrant and started liking him. At this point, he knew that his love will never come to fruition.
He was actually a person that loves to play around very much. The rich second generation around him, whether it was with men or women, were very good at playing. Because he used to think about Shen Jintai in his heart all the time and fear that Shen Jintai would dislike him if he was “dirty”, he had abstained from those vices. Now, he plans to let himself go and live a romantic and free life.
Back in the university in the UK that he attended, he had his own circle of Chinese friends. In this circle was another circle that included either second generation of the wealthy or from high officials. Among them, the one who he got along best was Gao Weicheng. Seeing that he had been in low spirits since he returned to school, he invited Yan Yaoxuan to his home to attend a party.
“My parents have returned to China, and it’ll be a month before they return. I’m hosting a pool party at my house. There’ll be a bunch of beauties there, so come and have some fun.”
He originally thought Yan Yaoxuan would refuse. While he liked to fool around, he never went to any messy party. However, he didn’t expect that Yan Yaoxuan actually agreed this time as he said: “Okay.”
Yan Yaoxuan dressed up beautifully and drove his sports car to Gao Weicheng’s place. While the Gao family is Chinese, they mainly do their business in the UK. Their family had one of the most luxurious homes in the area, included in it was an extremely large swimming pool. However, like most typical Chinese parents, the Gao’s were extremely strict. Only when they left to go back to China would Gao Weicheng dare to go wild like this.
Yan Yaoxuan planned to indulge himself tonight to see if there are any handsome guys. Since ancient times, the best way to heal emotional injuries has always been to start a new relationship quickly.
He walked through the hall with a cigarette in his hand and went directly to the back garden of Gao’s house. The sun shone on all the handsome men and beautiful women who were in shorts and bikinis. A few were wrapped in bathrobes. What he was wearing was normal clothes but stood out as he looked different from the rest.
Gao Weicheng shouted down from the balcony on the second floor: “Up here!”
Yan Yaoxuan squeezed the cigarette and glanced up. Then Gao Weicheng said: “Come up.”
Yan Yaoxuan took a glass of wine from the waiter, took a sip, then put the glass back, and went up with a cigarette in his hand.
An exceptionally handsome and cold man stood beside Gao Weicheng, looked downstairs and asked, “Who?”
“I’ll introduce you later.”
After a while, he saw Yan Yaoxuan coming up, with his hair slick back and wearing a light gray suit. While he wasn’t particularly handsome, he had a flirty aura and exuded the feel of an aristocrat. When he saw the man next to Gao Weicheng, he raised his eyebrows.
Gao Weicheng introduced the two of them: “Shan Cheng, Yan Yaoxuan.”
Yan Yaoxuan’s eyes lit up when he saw Shan Cheng for the first time.
So fucking handsome.
He was cold, tall, and thin, belonging to the type like Shen Jintai, but his eyebrows were a little sharper and his facial features were more profound. This kind of beauty made his eyes glow.
He stretched out his hand: “Nice to meet you.”
Shan Cheng shook his hand, but kept staring at him. With an unsure smile, he said: “Hello.”
Listening to the accent, he guessed that his Chinese wasn’t very good. If he looked closely at his facial features, they were deep and the colors of his eyes was slightly light, indicating that he was probably mixed blood.
No wonder why he looks so good.
“Why didn’t you two go down to play?” Yan Yaoxuan said.
“He’s not here to play. He’s here to talk to me about something.” Gao Weicheng looked at Shan Cheng as he said: “Okay, what you said, I’ll talk to my dad about it later.”
“What kind of party are you having?” Shan Cheng asked.
“You won’t be interested,” Gao Weicheng said with a smile.
Unexpectedly, Shan Cheng said: “I think it’s quite interesting.”
Gao Weicheng was taken aback for a moment. What’s going on today? Two people who were never keen on these types of parties suddenly became interested in them?
A beautiful woman shouted for Gao Weicheng from the bottom. Gao Weicheng asked Yan Yaoxuan: “Are you ready to have fun?”
“If there are good ones,” Yan Yaoxuan said.
Gao Weicheng hugged his shoulder and went down with him: “Yeah buddy. I found two of the best girls for you.”
Gao Weicheng didn’t know that he liked men, so all the people that he looked for were women. However, he looked back at Shan Cheng, who was walking behind him, and saw that Shan Cheng was also looking in his direction.
Oh, there may be a spark. It’s just that the name Shan Cheng made him a little hesitant.
He secretly asked Gao Weicheng: “Shan Cheng, is it the Shan I’m thinking of?”
Gao Weicheng glanced back and whispered: “This man isn’t someone you can be friends with. He’s not the same as us.”
It seems that he’s really that from that famous Shan family.
The people who were at the party were all playboys. As soon as Shan Cheng found a place to sit down, several women surrounded him, but he looked at them coldly and wasn’t interested in any of them.
Yan Yaoxuan hesitated for a while before he intended to try. He can’t find anyone any worse than Shen Jintai. If he doesn’t, wouldn’t it be hard to make peace with himself?
This Shan Cheng is a beautiful and cold man with such a good background, so it must be very enjoyable if he could do him. The only drawback was he was a little taller than him.
He actually like the 0’s that were shorter than him, which made him feel a better sense of conquest. However, nothing is perfect in the world. The conditions Shan Cheng possessed were already pretty good.
Yan Yaoxuan tore open his neckline, rolled up his sleeve, took a glass of wine, and walked towards Shan Cheng with a cigarette in his hand.
The author has something to say：
Mixed-race, focus on the key points, and take the exam.
A story of being X if you don’t succeed in seducing a man.
Kinky Thoughts: For those who failed the exam, the implication that he’s mixed race mean his other race that is non-asian is probably packing a lot of heat.
