Chapter 165: Moderation
When he was young, he was desperate for love. As he got older, he learned that the only people in the world who would love him the most were his parents. His father’s tears had touched Xu Xingchen in the softest part of his heart. For the first time in more than a decade, he felt the fatherly love from Xu Dahai.
The past had passed, and it no longer mattered who was right or wrong. He only hoped that the remaining time would be longer to make up for the years they have missed.
After Chinese New Year’s, he went with Xu Dahai to visit relatives and friends. On the way back, he ran into Yu Chenglin. Xu Xingchen stopped to greet him. Yu Chenglin glance at the electric car and yelled: “Uncle” at Xu Dahai.
“Going to visit relatives?” Xu Xingchen asked.
Yu Chenglin was riding a motorcycle and there was a car coming from behind. He glanced back as Xu Xingchen said: “You can go.”
Yu Chenglin nodded and drove away.
Xu Dahai asked: “Who was that again? He looks familiar.”
Xu Xingchen smiled and said nothing. He no longer recognized it was Yu Chenglin who he had beaten back then.
Outside the police cordon, there was a crowd surrounding the area. Shen Jintai got out of the car and went to help Cai Jun. Cai Jun jumped out of the car and laughed: “You really think I’m an old man.”
Shen Jintai smiled and went to Qiu Hong’s side to look at the shot just now. Qiu Hong made an ok gesture. Shen Jintai looked at the crowd of onlookers before getting into the car that was waiting for him.
They were at the outskirts of the city. Looking around, it was full of plains that was covered with snow. Shen Jintai looked at the time and asked: “Is it a bit late?”
“It should be fine if there’s no traffic jam.”
Shen Jintai changed his clothes directly in the car. He didn’t have time to style his hair and went to the premiere like this.
Bai Qingquan and the others were already waiting for him. Next to him was handsome young man in high spirits that was dressed in a formal outfit with a 37-point slanted hairstyle. It was the screenwriter for <When You’re Older>, Song Chenchen.
“Sorry, I’m late.” Shen Jintai said.
“Your crew won’t even give you a break?” Bai Qingquan said.
“Did you two discuss it?” Song Chenchen said: “You’re wearing matching outfits.”
Shen Jintai was wearing a black turtleneck sweater with a black coat while Bai Qingquan wore an off-white coat and also had on a turtleneck sweater.
“Interesting. What a coincidence.” Shen Jintai said.
“Get ready to enter.” Zhao Jindong, the boss of Xingyun, said.
Song Chenchen took the lead when he heard this and walked towards the entrance. Bai Qingquan tilted his head slightly and whispered to Shen Jintai: “I heard that Teacher Song and President Zhao are a couple.”
Hearing this, Shen Jintai glanced at them, put his hand on Bai Qingquan’s arm and asked: “I saw a clip of you before coming here and you weren’t wearing this. Did you change so you can match me?”
Bai Qingquan glanced at him with a smile: “Isn’t your brother so loyal?”
Shen Jintai thought that Bai Qingquan had not completely recovered from his scandal. Knowing Bai Qingquan’s previous character, he would assuredly not use “brother” but “sister” instead.
The publicity method to promote <When You’re Older> was ingenious. It was mainly focused on the use of new media for publicity. The premiere ceremony was held later than ordinary movies. After it’s large-scale released, they invited a bunch of media and audience to blow rainbow farts for it.
In term of influence, it was better once Yan Qiuchi waves his hand.
“Have you heard? Rumors has it that the employees of several major companies under the Yan family received tickets to <When You’re Older>!”
“Someone got a ticket yesterday. Brother-in-law Yan is quite pompous.”
“Whether it is a brother-in-law or a son-in-law, only he could accomplish something of this caliber!”
“Hahahaha, I heard that Yan Qiuchi not only sent movie tickets to his employees, but also held a lucky drawing through Shen Jintai’s official fan club to give free tickets to gold powders, including red envelopes giveaways. This move has to please his wife and his wife’s fans. I have to say, his means are quite high.”
“He has already made a comeback against the wind of gold powders side. Money can make a ghost run the mill*.”
*(有钱能使鬼推磨) Idiom refers to as long as you have money, you can make someone do anything for you.
“When <When You’re Older> was released, I realized what it truly means to be a gold powder. Our boss is the head of a small company, who’s tall and handsome. A very ordinary man who watches football and basketball on the weekdays. Yesterday, he actually gave us a dozen movie tickets and said to take all our families to go see it. One brush wasn’t enough. It’s best to brush twice saying that as long as we watch <When You’re Older>, no matter how many tickets we buy, he’ll reimburse us. It was truly shocking!”
“Hahahaha, sisters upstairs. It doesn’t have to be a gold powder. Your boss may also be a moonlight powder!”
“Bai Qingquan has also seen the return of his fans recently. He’s so beautiful in this movie. When he burst into tears, it makes my heart hurt.”
“I’ve been so addicted to this kind of pairing of a domineering president and a big star recently. It’s a pity that I can’t find a meal replacement. Is it convenient for the sisters on the sixth floor to post a photo of your boss? I feel that your boss is my favorite type, strait-laced and rough. A big gong!”
“I can send it, but our boss isn’t a domineering president. He’s just runs a small decoration company. I hope no one here knows him, otherwise I’ll be in trouble.”
After replying, the poster posted a picture. In the picture was a young man with a tan complexion. He had a buzzcut head and was more handsome than an average passerby. He looked exceptionally tall and sturdy. He was wearing a suit with a white shirt underneath and had on a loose black tie that was hanging around his neck showing off part of his neckline. He had a cigarette in his hand that exuded manliness.
“Definitely not similar to Prince Yan. I don’t think it matches Touhua very well. Touhua has a strong CP with Prince Yan. One is noble and handsome, while the other is bright and sunny making a very harmonious pairing.”
“Hahahaha, my boss should be a straight man. Apart from giving us tickets to watch this movie, he’s just like any other average guy. However, he doesn’t have a partner. There are quite a few girls who likes him. Although he’s not a big boss, he’s still pretty rich.”
“I want to say… he’s not suitable for Touhua, but fits pretty well for Bai Qingquan! Have you forgotten the requirements from Bai Qingquan’s alt?!”
“Hahahahaha, I remember: you don’t need to be handsome, but you have to be a pure gong. You have to be powerful enough to go nonstop for three days and nights!”
“There’s also: You have to be able to pick me up and fuck me!”
“Pffft. I just finished watching <When You’re Older> and almost forgot what Bai Qingquan’s really like.”
“Bai Qingquan image was so clean. When I think about this, I feel it’s such a tragedy. What a pity that he was such a fairy.”
“I’m the only one who thinks his alt is fine. We’re all humans and we all have a Weibo alt. What’s said online and in reality, are not the same. At lease I dare not let my friends and family know the things I have said on Weibo. An alt account has no scruples and often the things they post are exaggerated. I don’t think Bai Qingquan would be so shameless. Otherwise, he wouldn’t last in the entertainment industry and still be like a little chick waiting for feed!”
“That’s true. Gays have always been loud-mouthed. However, as a public figure, it’s normal to be affected after being stripped of his starlight. I don’t know what kind of boyfriend he would find in the future. There were actually a lot of things exposed in his alt, but the sex was the most eye-catching and that’s what the public only pay attention to. I found from many of his post that he feels very lonely, and he also does a lot of charity that he posts pictures of and the likes on his alt. His heart is quite good but it’s a pity that no one pays attention to things like this.”
“Bai Qingquan’s water army has exceeded the standard!”
In a movie theater near Nancheng Film and Television City, after the screening of <When You’re Older>, a group of people left the theater crying. The cinema was on the first basement floor with the exit on the right. Posters of the latest movies were hanged along the walls. A young man, around 25, who looked strong and capable, was smoking a cigarette as he stared at the poster for <When You’re Older>.
On it was Bai Qingquan leaning slightly to his side with tears in his eyes showing a very handsome and gentle look.
After attending the premiere, Zhao Jindong invited the entire group to a meal. When Shen Jintai returned after dinner, it was already past 11 at night.
Xiao Tang was keener this time and only sent Shen Jintai to the door of his room but did not go in: “Then Brother Jin, see you tomorrow.”
“Thank you for your hard work.” Shen Jintai took the things in his hand, opened the door, and went in.
The living room was empty. He put his things down and went to the bedroom. He saw Yan Qiuchi lying in bed, sleeping soundly. He closed the door, sat in the living room, and sorted out the things he brought back today.
He had received New Year’s gifts from the representatives of the gold powders today and he brought all of it back. His popularity has risen to the point where the gifts he received were endless. Many fans even sent things directly to the hotel where he was staying at. He usually accepts them but haven’t had the chance to go through them. They were all stored in a room he designated for gifts. When he has free time, he’ll open them one by one.
He went to shower, and the sound of the water woke up Yan Qiuchi. When he came out to blow dry his hair, Yan Qiuchi had pushed the door open and came in. With a sleepy expression on his face, he asked: “You came back so late today.”
“The meal lasted longer than expected. When did you return?”
“A little after 8. I had a good rest.” As Yan Qiuchi said it, he took the hair dryer in Shen Jintai’s hand and started to dry his hair. Shen Jintai had smooth thick hair that had a great feeling in his hands. His drowsiness eased as he helped dry off Shen Jintai’s hair and his eyes brightened up: “How did filming go today?”
“Speaking of that,” Shen Jintai pulled down his bathrobe slightly, revealing the hickeys on his neck: “Look at what you did. I couldn’t even cover it up with makeup. In order to match the previous scene, we had to reshoot them all and wasted the entire morning.”
Perhaps it was due to the hot water from the shower, but the hickeys on Shen Jintai looked even redder than before. Yan Qiuchi held his fingers and asked if it hurts. Shen Jintai shook his neck and shrank back slightly from the touch. He was more sensitive than normal people, as he had personally found out the night before last.
This sensitivity applied to everywhere on his body, including his toes. That night, Yan Qiuchi had kissed his feet with great enthusiasm, and he reacted in that way…
Yan Qiuchi smiled.
It’s this kind of smile again!
Shen Jintai had greater experience now. As soon as he saw Yan Qiuchi’s smile, he knew what was going on in his head. He brushed off Yan Qiuchi’s hand, closed his bathrobe, and walked out.
Yan Qiuchi put down the hair dryer and said: “It looks like the box office will explode today.” He was smart to shift the topic.
Shen Jintai immediately smiled when he heard this. He went to the cloakroom and said as he was putting on his pajamas: “I’ve heard. President Zhao and Director Sun were incredibly happy at dinner tonight. Maybe in a few days, we will have a celebration banquet. It’s said that in less than three days, the movie will bring in as much capital as it originally cost to produce, though I’m not sure how much we can earn with it.”
Though his renumeration for the movie was low, he had a box office bonus. With the first movie going so well, the road in his future will be much smoother. Not only was he happy but the gold powder will be happy as well.
Yan Qiuchi sat down on the bed and said: “You have to be more cautious when picking up projects in the future. <Pilot> and <Welcome Rain on a Spring Night> are both good and there should be no problems with these two movies. One will make money at the box office and the other will win lots of awards. If you take on projects with this kind of quality in the future, you’ll be able to sit firmly in the front in less than three years.”
Shen Jintai climbed into the bed with a smile. He opened the blanket and laid down. Inside was warm as it still had Yan Qiuchi’s residual body heat: “A good film hasn’t been found yet. My next project hasn’t been decided. All the scripts I’ve gotten so far aren’t very good.”
“Then you should give yourself a vacation.” Yan Qiuchi said: “It’s not bad to take a few months off. Your popularity will remain within the next year and your fans are loyal.”
<Pilot> would be released around summer vacation and <Welcome Rain on a Spring Night> will probably be released at the end of the year. In addition, <When You’re Older> was released at the beginning of this year, making it in total three big-screen work in a single year.
“Nn…” Shen Jintai smiled. He pierced Yan Qiuchi’s careful motives by saying: “Indeed, there’s plenty of time then, so, President Yan, won’t you restrain yourself?”
He was extremely satisfied when he delivered this sentence. Yan Qiuchi had asked him to rest but he knew exactly what Yan Qiuchi intentions were!
It wasn’t that he couldn’t bear it, but the current filming of <Welcome Rain on a Spring Night> was about to get more abusive. It’s hard to imagine that kind of state if they keep rolling around in the bedsheets in full swing all night every night. How was he supposed to act in a bitter drama the next morning? The spring tide on his body hasn’t dissipated and with a sore stomach, how could he expect to start crying!
Shen Jintai shuddered. He had to abstain from sex these next few days, at least until he finished filming the highlights for <Welcome Rain on a Spring Night>.
