Chapter 119: Touhua, Touhua!
There’s a thin line between flirting and sexual harassment, and that line is dependent on the thoughts and feelings of the parties involved. If there was no love involve, kissing and constant chasing will only increase the other party’s aversion, but if the other party has you in their heart, a bit of force that’s intertwined with tenderness can stir up the ripples in the hearts of both parties.
Yan Qiuchi didn’t dare to be too presumptuous before, as he knew Shen Jintai didn’t have feelings for him. Now that he was “given an inch”, he became aware that Shen Jintai was slowly loosening.
It seems that Shen Jintai have not fully understood himself yet, as he stilled acted very flustered. His impression of Yan Qiuchi was not like this.
Yan Qiuchi should be a gentleman, restrained, and sometimes a bit domineering. He remembered when he visited him on the set of <Pilot>, Yan Qiuchi had told him to drink less and, in the corridor, he had asked him to smoke less. He couldn’t help but felt very happy due to Yan Qiuchi taking the initiative.
Despite the ambiguity they had previously, Yan Qiuchi had always been thoughtful, reticent, considerate, and even a little pitiful, so much so that Shen Jintai had eventually developed affection for him. He liked the feeling that he was in control*.
*Clarity: in the sense that he knew there was a line that either of them would not cross and since they don’t dare to cross it, they can both have an amiable relationship.
But since Yan Qiuchi kissed him yesterday, everything has changed. It was so sudden. He didn’t expect Yan Qiuchi to suddenly become so aggressive that he was now flustered and in complete loss.
It turns out that not only does acting depending on talent, but it also applies to falling in love.
Everyone starts out as a virgin and they all eventually will fall in love for the first time. Yet, why was Yan Qiuchi so good at it? Shen Jintai had prided himself on being a person who had seen the world, yet how could he be so easily teased and poked by Yan Qiuchi? Shen Jintai sat back as he thought silently.
There was a bouquet of pink roses besides him. The car slowly came to a stopped, and Shen Jintai let out a sigh of relief and got out of the car.
“Flowers.” Yan Qiuchi said.
Shen Jintai hadn’t recovered from his frustration and embarrassment. He grabbed the bouquet and held it in his arms when he heard Yan Qiuchi’s words. The entire crew was watching him and felt he was suddenly acting very obediently.
He was kissed again, and this time it was a strong kiss, but it wasn’t very intense as there was no tongue…
Ahhhh, what is his thinking!
Shen Jintai pursed his lips and glanced at the onlookers, as well as Bai Qingquan who was standing up from his seat. He immediately turned around, took a few strides, and stuffed the roses into Yan Qiuchi’s arms.
His strength was strong that it made Yan Qiuchi took a few steps back. He had to quickly grab the bouquet that almost fell to the ground. Shen Jintai turned his head and left. After walking a few steps, he turned back and shouted: “I’m not acting!”
God damn*. When he finally arrived on the set, his courage had recovered.
*Grandma’s (奶奶的) = when used like this by itself is a slang for a curse. Basically fuck, damn ect.
Who is he? He’s Shen Jintai! He’s not a delicate little 0 beauty like Bai Qingquan. How could he let Yan Qiuchi bully him like this!
Even… Even if he’s a shou, he will be the queen of shous! He wanted to see Yan Qiuchi cry! Yan Qiuchi had to pay for these two kisses!
He frowned and glanced at Yan Qiuchi, finally stabilizing himself. It’s just Yan Qiuchi. As if he couldn’t deal with him. Sooner or later, he’ll have Yan Qiuchi in the palm of his hand, and then he’ll make him cry while he laughs on his throne. He finally found something more important than thinking about being a shou or gong.
Li Meilan, who was waiting on the set, relying on her keen intuition, quickly took out her phone and took a photo. After the photo was taken, she put the phone back in her pocket. Wow, wow! She thought about how to publicize what just happened. Yan Qiuchi had sent flowers to court Shen Jintai and he flat out rejected them!
“I’m not acting.” Shen Jintai said to Li Meilan: “I just really don’t want his flowers!”
“That’s better,” Li Meilan said with a smile: “It shows that we didn’t lie. I will use an alt account to spread the news.”
Shen Jintai: “You have an alt account?”
Li Meilan said: “Of course, I usually eat melons in the entertainment industry. How can I use my main?”
Shen Jintai: “What is your alt?”
Li Meilan: “This is my personal privacy. I can’t tell you. I can only say that I am also one of thousands of gold powders.”
Does everyone use an alt account these days? Does Yan Qiuchi have one as well? Ahhhh why does he keep thinking about Yan Qiuchi!!!
“Should we talk to President Yan and ask him for his opinion?” Xiao Tang said: “After all, this statement was sent by him.”
Li Meilan: “He can make a statement and slap himself in the face so why would he be worried about this? Besides isn’t he chasing Jintai? Making some contributions to Jintai is also giving a chance for him to perform.”
Despite her teasing, Li Meilan still didn’t dare to offend Yan Qiuchi: “I’ll send him a message and feel him out.”
Yan Qiuchi quickly responded with: [Send it.]
“Tsk,” Li Meilan said: “He’s a man who can bend and stretch*.”
*Can bend and stretch (能屈能伸) = refers to people who can adapt to various situations, be patient when they are frustrated, and can display their ambitions when they are successful.
She was really impressed with Yan Qiuchi. She had always thought Yan Qiuchi was cold and unsmiling and was a person that was completely out of everyone’s reach that they could only look from a distance. She didn’t expect that once he committed to what he wanted to do, he would be decisive and straightforward and would not drag mud and dirty water at all.
He really did go out of his way in order to chase Shen Jintai. She asked the team to prepare the draft and glanced at Shen Jintai. He was sitting in front of the mirror, as the makeup artist was applying makeup on to make him look old. Old-age makeup was difficult, so he had to sit still for a long time, but Shen Jintai remained upright without loosening his lower back at all.
She could understand why Yan Qiuchi would lower himself like this. He was a smart person, yet he acted so recklessly because he thought it was worth it. What does it mean to be able to make such an excellent person like Yan Qiuchi pursue so hard?
It shows that the current Shen Jintai was good enough. Between, his appearance, figure, fame, and even personality, she felt that Shen Jintai had almost no shortcomings.
Shen Jintai’s bad reputation was now miles away. He didn’t need to worry about the box office for <Pilot>. He could just lie low and start collecting the box office benefits. Since it was a commercial film, it would be unlikely to win any awards. If his other works can win though, he’ll have it all. Popularity, box office, and awards. These things will secure his foothold in the entertainment industry.
After the team wrote the draft, it was sent to Li Meilan for review. Li Meilan put forward a few amendments, and then sent it out. The paragraph where Shen Jintai stuffed the bouquet caused a great response from the gold powder.
“Hahahaha, so cool. In the middle of the night yesterday, they said that my son was upside down. I was so angry that I didn’t fall asleep. Now I’m finally relieved!”
“Hit those sunspots hard in their faces and make them swollen!”
“My brother is so handsome. Don’t associate with Yan Qiuchi. Originally, I thought that everything would be fine if my brother was happy, but today’s post made me realize that my brother is still beautiful. Stay away from Yan Qiuchi!”
“Yes, I think so too. My brother is so good, but because Yan Qiuchi is also very good, they all thought he became an upside-down brother. They didn’t open their eyes to see who was chasing who now. My elder brother persisted. Unless Yan Qiuchi chased him for three to five years, don’t promise him anything!”
“Yes, my brother is worse than Yan Qiuchi in terms of appearance, figure, and fame. They think Yan Qiuchi is a rare high-quality man. Isn’t our brother unparalleled in the world? My brother continued to blossom and shine brightly, so that everyone could see how good this brother is!”
The topic of Shen Jintai and Yan Qiuchi’s secret love was still hot so any information about them would quickly spread online. The video of Shen Jintai’s rejecting Yan Qiuchi’s flowers quickly spread.
The dog-blooded love melons of the two of them were so delicious that discussion among netizens rose into full swing in an instant. Just when everyone was discussing most enthusiastically, someone suddenly screamed at all the groundhogs:
“Ahhhhhhh, <Pilot> just released the first trailer! God, go see it! It made my scalp tingle. Touhua is so handsome!”
“Really? Really? This is too sudden!”
“I’m so happy I almost fainted. Everyone go and see. Just looking at it made me cry!”
The crew of <Pilot> had done an excellent job in keeping everything confidential. Except for the teaser and makeup photos, there were very few materials released. Today, all of sudden, they have decided to release the first trailer.
The trailer had a magnificent atmospheres. The beginning showed an aerial bombardment scene, with thousands of refugees fleeing. A little girl that was holding her arms suddenly turned her head and look up into the sky. Immediately afterwards, more people turned their heads and looked up. In the heavy clouds, a fighter jet suddenly appeared with a “boom” and flew over their heads.
The scene immediately switches to an aerial battle. Shen Jintai’s face didn’t appear until the very end of the trailer. The enemy aircraft’s shells flew over the screen hitting a fighter jet on the Chinese side. The jet instantly burst into thick smoke as it tumbled down from the air. When it was about to crash, a person appeared out from under the thick smoke. It was Shen Jintai. He pulled hard and with a fwump his parachute opened in an instant that rapidly stopped his falling body. He titled his head back as the sun shone behind him, revealing Shen Jintai’s resolute and handsome face.
“Liu Gang from the fourth brigade of the Chinese Air Force, reporting for duty!”
“Ye Wen from the fourth brigade of the Chinese Air Force, reporting for duty!”
“Chu Heming from the fourth brigade of the Chinese Air Force, reporting for duty!”
“Chen Zheng from the fourth brigade of the Chinese Air Force, reporting for duty!”
The slogan that encompassed the group of heroic pilots was firm and passionate appeared: [A strong man will fly towards the winds and clouds and will swear to serve the country until death.]
“Damn it, I just watched it and cried!”
“Wow! Wow! So cool!”
“Touhua was so gong! So handsome!”
“Touhua in a flight suit looks amazing! So heroic!”
“I cried with excitement! Touhua, Touhua, I love you!”
“Ahhhhhhhhh, what is going on today?! <When You’re Older> also released their official trailer. Go and watch it. It has a completely different feel! Touhua and Bai Qingquan are too beautiful!”
The author has something to say：
Queen Touhua, go!
