Chapter 105: The Charm of Yan Qiuchi

“Ding Dong!” Xiao Ai came online.

“Dear~” Xiao Ai said enthusiastically: “Dear, have you figured things out clearly?”

Shen Jintai: “What?”

“Change your strategy to go attack Yan Qiuchi.” Xiao Ai said.

“There is no such plan,” Shen Jintai said: “How can I attack him if I don’t like him? That’s quite scummy.”

Xiao Ai: “But you’re not planning to attack Bai Yueguang. Dear, the result of being too conscientious is that you’re going to die.”

Shen Jintai: “I have to think about it again.”

Xiao Ai: “Dear, Xiao Ai advises you to hurry up. Your initial task is to take away the male protagonist’s official match, capture his white moonlight, and cut off their relationship. This is your final goal. Later it was changed to as long as either of them fall in love with someone else, this would also break their relationship line, but that was a system bug. Xiao Ai had secretly supported this for the sake of becoming good friends with you. If this bug is patched, you can only continue to attack Bai Qingquan. If you go for the male protagonist now, don’t you know how happy he will be? He’s so heartbroken right now because you don’t love him. Let Xiao Ai tell you, if you touch his hand now, he’ll ascend to heaven!”

“…” Shen Jintai didn’t want to criticize Xiao Ai’s thoughts anymore. Was he really sent by the Love Harmony System?!

Shen Jintai was extremely skeptical and expressed deep doubts about everything regarding this system! What about mutual trust?!

Shen Jintai: “But we are both 1’s.”

Xiao Ai: “When two 1’s meet, there must be one 0. ”

Shen Jintai: “Can he be a 0 for me?”

Xiao Ai: “That depends on your own ability.”

He… The key point is, he didn’t think he as this ability!

“Xiao Ai thinks you should try it,” Xiao Ai said seductively: “Don’t you think a tall 0 is attractive? A domineering president, to the eyes of outsiders, is full of masculinity and cold abstinence. But to you, he’s stained with a layer of blush. Dear, can’t you feel it? Doesn’t this give rise to your desire to attack? Rather than conquering the little 0 beauty Bai Yueguang, isn’t it more satisfying to conquer Yan Qiuchi? Am I right?”

Wow.

He… He was actually a bit tempted listening to Xiao Ai.

“I… I’ll think about it.” Shen Jintai finally said.

“Big attack! You can do it!” Xiao Ai cheered.

“Okay… okay. I can!” Shen Jintai said.

It’s not like Shen Jintai hadn’t thought about it. He just didn’t assess it seriously and systematically before. Now that he’s critically analyzing it, he felt that it would be better to at least have good feelings and then take the offensive, so it won’t be a matter of bad conscience. If he didn’t like the other party and is with him for other reasons, it would not only be terrible to the other party’s sincerity, but also to himself. It would be torture.

Perhaps he should get in touch with Yan Qiuchi once more and give it a try. He could only blame this crappy system for putting him in such a predicament.

Due to the hot search, the atmosphere of the crew was extremely tense today. It was unknown if it was because of a psychological effect. Everyone felt that Bai Qingquan and Shen Jintai seem to have been communicating less.

To the public, it was rumored that the crew had bought the hot search in order to promote the movie, which had really wronged the crew. They had so many gimmicks and gain unprecedent attention before the filming even started. They had no reason to buy this kind of offensive hot search.

Despite such atmosphere, the day’s filming went smoothly. Both actors performed dedicatedly.

The scene they were filming was the coming out scene, so the performance was quite explosive.

Because his family didn’t accept his homosexuality, Yu Nuo had run away from home and Luo Wensheng went to find him. This scene mirrors the ending where Luo Wensheng ran away from home and Yu Nuo in turn went to search for him.

The next part was shooting the college entrance examination scene. It wouldn’t be filmed tomorrow so Shen Jintai took advantage of this and went to visit the Yan’s villa.

Yan Qiuchi was sitting in the office, constantly swiping Weibo hot searches. He was in a particularly good mood. He was mainly looking at the statement issued by the artist agency department of Sunshine Media. It looks to be a very general statement that they normally use for such events. These statements were based off of the interests of the company and the artist so what was said may not be the truth. As an expert in this field, Yan Qiuchi knew from reading the statement that Bai Qingquan and Shen Jintai had not confirm their relationship.

The wording of the statement was too strong and direct that it couldn’t be possible for them to have a relationship let alone a secret affair. It was impossible for them to fall in love in such a short period of time. It also confirmed to him that Bai Qingquan had no romantic interest in Shen Jintai.

This had made Yan Qiuchi uncomfortable for a long time. He had a false alarm that made him feel a sense of loss and immediate recovery.

When Yan Qiuchi went out to do errands, Fang Yun said to him while in the elevator: “President Yan, have you read today’s breaking news?”

Yan Qiuchi replied: “Nn, the brokerage department has done a good job. The response was very fast.”

Fang Yun: “It really shocked me when I saw it so I unconsciously said out loud how they could fall in love.”

Yan Qiuchi thought: ‘It surprised me as well.’

He asked Fang Yun: “How did Shen Jintai’s fans react?”

Fang Yun silently thought: ‘Why is President Yan not caring about his own artists but asking about the reaction of Shen Jintai’s fans?’

She had begun to suspect something was amiss. Ever since she saw Shen Jintai coming out of President Yan’s room holding a blanket in his arms that day, she had smelled the scent of adultery!

She was so excited but unfortunately, she had no one she could tell. She could only silently observe and secret poke herself!

“Of course, gold powder had a false alarm. Gold powder and moonlight powder seems to be in harmony now, but the two have old grudges so they’ve been secretly poking each other. Now that they heard it was all slander, they’re happy. The hornets have all gone to fight that Xiao Qi. President Yan, do you know Xiao Qi?”

Of course, he knew. He had seen all kinds of people, but he still underestimated the tenacity of this woman, not to mention how neurosis she was. He had already told Zhang Yuan from the brokerage department to join forces with Monsoon Entertainment to sue her together.

This woman dares to attack Shen Jintai. It meant she must have a death wish.

Mrs. Yan and her best friend had gone abroad for a trip. Only when they returned did they learned about the turbulent news. When they opened Weibo, the saw the hot search [The East Palace Three Masters] was hanging at the top.

The picture labeled as [The East Palace Three Masters] was of Shen Jintai, Bai Qingquan, and Zheng Siqi standing together looking at the camera coldly. It was like they were filming a blockbuster movie. The night accentuated their facial features. Since knowing the real reason why they were like this, it only made netizens even more excited.

“The East Palace Three Masters’s feelings are really not exaggerated. The way they take off their masks together is so handsome!”

“Someone at Station B edited this video and matched it with the love-hate entanglements of the three people in <The East Palace is Coming>. The scenes of their past and present lives are even more interesting, especially the slow motion of the three of them facing the camera. Oh my god!”

“The most amazing thing is that the three are not even the same type. One’s cold and handsome, one’s elegant and beautiful, and one’s opulent and suave. I, a woman with a flower heart*, can do all three of them!”

*Flower heart (花心) = metaphor use to describe a man or woman not in any specific love.

“What I love most is Touhua, but why?! He’s the only one who doesn’t like women. Wuwuwu!”

With so many ups and downs, the public seemed to have accepted Shen Jintai’s sexuality. He was a like a firework with different colors in the entertainment industry. They felt he added a rainbow* color to it, which didn’t seem bad at all. He even gained a lot of gay fans.

*Clarity: for those unaware, the rainbow is a symbol of gay pride but more so the LGBQT+ community.

Someone must be the first person to eat crabs*. Society may become more enlightened in the future because of the influence of these celebrities. If one day there was no discrimination and prejudice, heterosexuality, homosexuality, asexuality, and any other kind, where people were free to be themselves, that will definitely be a better future.

*First person to eat crabs (第一个吃螃蟹的人) = refers to the first person who dares to do something.

Shen Jintai, who use to be blackened for his sexuality, now shined brightly, and had a very positive image. It was all due to his own ability to earn the respect he deserves.

“What kind of thing is this Xiao Qi?” Mrs. Yan said to Yan Qiuchi: “How could anyone be so hostile to a person who they have never met before for no reason?”

“There are people like that in this world,” Yan Qiuchi said: “She’s not getting away with it. Both Monsoon and my company is suing her.”

Mrs. Yan: “In my opinion, the entertainment industry should be cleaned up. It’s such a mess. Xiao Jin has such a good reputation now. More than a year ago, I didn’t dare search for news of him online since they were all scolding him.”

Yan Qiuchi smiled and prepared to go upstairs. He was very spirited today. Tonight, he’ll be able to get a good night’s rest.

“Have you eaten yet?” Mrs. Yan asked.

“I’m not very hungry, so I’ll skip dinner.” Yan Qiuchi said.

As soon as he finished speaking, he heard the maid answer the doorman’s call and said to Mrs. Yan: “Xiao Jin is here.”

Yan Qiuchi froze. He stopped at the stairs, turned around and asked his mother: “Why is he here?”

“I made an appointment for him to come for diner.” Mrs. Yan looked at him with a sly smile: “Well? Feeling hungry now?”

Yan Qiuchi immediately came down. Mrs. Yan laughed and went out to pick up Shen Jintai. Yan Qiuchi hesitated whether to go with her. Suddenly he saw a car coming over in the night. The lights illuminated the vestibule of the manor. Through the glass door, he saw Shen Jintai getting out of the car.

The last time they seen each other was at the hotel. He wasn’t sure why, but Yan Qiuchi felt his throat soured the instant he saw Shen Jintai.

This morning, he had thought he really lost him, and that Shen Jintai had belong to someone else. Now a complicated feeling of joy rushed inside the moment he saw Shen Jintai just now as if he was able to recover him. He vaguely heard Shen Jintai’s voice as he and his mother entered the doorway, the lights in the hall illuminating their faces. Shen Jintai’s face was so fair and petite that it was surging with charm.

How could anyone in this world, without doing a single thing, could rubbed Yan Qiuchi’s heart like this?

“Jintai, you’re here.” Yan Qiuchi greeted.

Shen Jintai smiled lightly, hiding the embarrassment on his face, and nodded to Yan Qiuchi. He had noticed Yan Qiuchi’s slight shyness and the enthusiasm he wanted to hide.

Like Bai Qingquan, and even Yan Qiuchi, and all men and women who have never been in love, before falling in love, Shen Jintai had a set of his own requirements he looks for in his future lover, such as who should be a gong and who should be the shou.

Shen Jintai was a gong himself so he could relate to the gongs in this novel. They should have an air bursting with masculinity and full of vigorous energy. In front of Bai Qingquan, he had always deliberately showed his aggressive temperament and never revealed his coquettish, cute, weak, and childish side. He felt that this kind of image would prove to Bai Qingquan that he was a gong.

It was in Yan Qiuchi’s body that he noticed the restraint, boyishness, and even the sexual charm of a man’s youth and it had not affected his masculinity in the slightest. On the contrary, this kind of occasional contrast was very moe*.

*Translation help: (其实很日人) translated directly [Is actually very Japanese]. I really have no idea what that’s referring to, but I suspect, given the context it’s referring to, the feeling of moe.
*
Moe = Japanese word feelings of affection towards any subject.


The author has something to say:

Will it come to you one day, Xiao Jin?


Kinky Thoughts: Was he really sent by the Love Harmony System?! – I have the same question. The whole point of this Love Harmony System is to censor the novel they’re in. At this point Xiao Ai is trying to pair them up and giving all these sexy rewards in anticipation for the papapa.

If one day there was no discrimination and prejudice, heterosexuality, homosexuality, asexuality, and any other kind, where people were free to be themselves, that will definitely be a better future. – Amen!
