Chapter 180: Yan Qiuchi went viral!

A hot search recently exploded on Weibo: [Shen Jintai sugar]. When you click on it, it takes you to a clip from <Honey, Let’s Travel>. The clip shows a scene of the living room that’s facing the bathroom door. The picture was still, and you could only here muffled sounds come out with subtitles at the bottom.

First the voice of a man is heard: “You’re acting mischievous again. You know I dare not touch you, right?”

Then there was Shen Jintai’s voice with hints of teasing: “I’m just praising you. Your French is so good that it gave me a lot of face.”

“If I don’t come back out and they broadcast this, the audience will think we’re doing it in the bathroom.”

“How do you say my sweetheart in French?”

“Mon chéri.”

Then you could hear Shen Jintai voice, in a very emotional tone, with a slightly muffled ending as he dragged his speech and said: “Monch é ri.”

“What’s wrong with you? Are you trying to rile me up?”

“I just think it’s so sexy when you speak French!”

Fortunately, the program group cut it off here and didn’t release what they said next. The reason though wasn’t because the program team wasn’t human, but it was most likely that the scale would be too large, and it wouldn’t pass review.

In the comment area of a group of groundhogs:

“Oh my god! I have goosebumps! I feel ashamed and excited! Ahhhhhhhh!”

“Honestly, he had said more excessive lines in his works than this, but the issue here is that they’re real lovers! It’s so reminiscent!”

“It looks very ordinary, but the amount of information is huge. Yan Qiuchi saying ‘being mischievous again’, ‘dare not touch you’. The subtext here is quite vulgar.”

“It’s no wonder Touhua is excited. I also think Yan Qiuchi is very sexy when he speaks French, especially when he has such a handsome and aristocratic face. I heard that his English is also very fluent since he studied in the UK. I’m so jealous of Touhua’s husband. How could any fan be dissatisfied with such a flower brother-in-law!”

“Looking at the next trailer, they’re going to the French ski resort in Val d’lsere, so it’ll become Yan Qiuchi’s home court. He could ski very good and together with Touhua, it’ll be so awesome!”

“It’s not surprising. Compared to me, a rich second-generation like him is much more capable. In the next episode, he’ll most likely attract even more fans. Touhua dared to take a man on a variety show and it turned out he came prepared. Such an excellent husband, I don’t even know if I’m jealous of Yan Qiuchi or of Touhua.”

The end of the episode ended well. It was the clip of them at the hot springs where everyone was soaking. When Shen Jintai took off his bathrobe and revealed his superb figure, everyone wanted to see what Yan Qiuchi’s figure looked like. The ambiguity was just right when suddenly the episode ended! It made people unbearably itchy that they couldn’t wait to watch the next episode!

After they finished watching, Yan Qiuchi got up and went to shower. When he came out of the bathroom, he saw Shen Jintai was still lying on the sofa chatting with Bai Qingquan and Zheng Siqi. He had his phone on speaker and Bai Qingquan was howling like a groundhog.

“Xiao Bai, do you want to be a flying guest or not?” Zheng Siqi asked.

“You’re all couples and I’ll be alone. I feel that I can only eat dog food if I go.”

“Yang Lizhi and I are not a couple.” Zheng Siqi said.

“Is that really true though? When I look at the interactions between the two of you, I find it quite ambiguous especially when you carried her on your back when you guys were trying to find the hotel.”

Zheng Siqi said: “She hurt her foot stepping on a stone. I felt that after receiving money from the program group, my performance hasn’t been too good, so I carried her on my back. Besides, we’re familiar with each other and I know the type that she likes, and it’s definitely not me.”

Bai Qingquan had sharp ears. When he heard the sound of water in the background, he asked: “Is anyone else there in your room?”

“Is it that sound coming from Jintai?” Zheng Siqi said.

“It’s Yan Qiuchi.” Shen Jintai said: “He’s drinking water.”

As soon as Bai Qingquan heard that Yan Qiuchi was there, he immediately said: “It’s getting late so let’s talk again when we have time.” He wasn’t sure if the groundhog scream was heard by his boss just now.

After Bai Qignquan hanged up, Shen Jintai chatted with Zheng Siqi for a bit before going to shower. After he came out, he saw that Yan Qiuchi was lying in bed swiping on his phone.

“Looking at comments?”

Yan Qiuchi said: “My Weibo followers have risen so much.”

“Everyone says you’re on fire,” Shen Jintai opened the blanket and laid down: “President Yan you’re so hot now. A bunch of people wants to marry you, but you must resist.”

Yan Qiuchi put down his mobile phone and stretched out his hand wanting to hug him. Shen Jintai dodge sideways: “You should also give me a vacation.”

“My fire is rubbing against you. Otherwise, they wouldn’t know who I am,” Yan Qiuchi said.

“It has little to do with me. The main thing is you are good enough.”

Yan Qiuchi turned to his side and asked: “Do you still think I am good and sexy enough?”

Shen Jintai said: “Really, you’ve been working hard for the past few days. You get up before 6 and its already midnight yet you haven’t even slept yet. You also been working overtime these few days. I feel bad for you, and you should feel bad for me. Can’t we take a break today?”

Yan Qiuchi said: “As you said, we’ll take a break… But tomorrow, don’t make excuses.”

Shen Jintai’s ears tinted red. He got up and turned off the lights and said: “Why do you want to… every day?”

“It’s because I haven’t love you enough yet,” Yan Qiuchi wrapped his arms around him as he said it, wanting to take off his clothes.

Habit was really a terrible thing. Shen Jintai was now used to taking off his clothes and sleeping naked with him. He didn’t resist and instead cooperated and took the initiative to take off his pajamas. He felt sorry for Yan Qiuchi who’s been hard at work these days. In another week, they had to set of to Italy and continue recording the show. Not only did Yan Qiuchi had to finish his work that accumulated from last week, but he also had to do the work this week and part of the work for the upcoming week.

“Fortunately, now that your Aunt Fang is becoming more familiar with the company’s business, she’s more capable than me.” Yan Qiuchi said.

Since they weren’t planning any physical activities that night, the two of them embraced each other as they chatted. Yan Qiuchi said: “I really didn’t know my mom would be so capable. She used to be a full-time housewife at home, which had buried her talents.”

“Then Auntie Fang will work in the company often in the future?”

“It’ll be at least a year or two. Although my dad has recovered a lot, his mental state is not as good as before. He used to be a workaholic but after resting for so long, his mentality seems to have changed a lot. He’s picked up a lot of hobbies and wants to do them in his spare time. Even if he’s fully recovered, most likely he’ll slowly take a back seat.”

The Yan’s burden will slowly fall on Yan Qiuchi’s shoulders sooner or later.

“It’s a pity that we didn’t see Yaoxuan when we went to the UK this time.” Shen Jintai said.

After they left France, they flew to the United Kingdom. When they arrived in London, they wanted to meet Yan Yaoxuan, but Yan Yaoxuan wasn’t in school. They were only there for two days and couldn’t wait for him to return. Instead, they were received by his friend Shan Cheng, who invited them to have a meal together.

Yan Qiuchi was unhappy that Yan Yaoxuan was skipping class. Foreign universities are different from domestic ones so truancy is taken very seriously and could affect his ability to graduate. He scolded Yan Yaoxuan until he was bloodied over the phone as Shen Jintai listened on the sidelines feeling that Yan Qiuchi was too fierce.

Yan Qiuchi explained to him: “I am in charge of him in our family and I’m not cruel to him, but he eats hard not soft*.

*(吃硬不吃软) Describe someone who yields to force but reject the soft approach.

With his father busy with work, his mother who relies on free-range parenting, and an excellent and capable older brother, Shen Jintai felt it wasn’t an easy environment for Yan Yaoxuan to grow up in.

Since there was no excursion last night, Shen Jintai was awakened early the next morning. He found that Yan Qiuchi had gotten up before 6 and had finished his breakfast a little past 7. Shen Jintai didn’t know where Yan Qiuchi got all that energy. Before Yan Qiuchi left, he gave him a kiss and said: “I got breakfast for you. If it gets cold, don’t eat it. Have Xiao Tang buy you something.”

Shen Jintai squinted his eyes and responded with a “Nn” before going back to sleep. He woke up again around 8. Breakfast was long cold, so he planned to go out and buy it himself.

Although he’s a popular star now and it wasn’t convenient to go out in public, he still occasionally wanted to go shopping like ordinary people. He didn’t tell anyone and put on a mask and headed out.

Despite having an ordinary style and wearing new clothes that he had never worn before and a mask, he was still recognized by the clerk when he went to buy breakfast.

“Your boyfriend… That is… Yan Qiuchi, didn’t he buy this for you?!” The owner said excitedly.

Shen Jintai was taken aback for a moment, and kept saying “Nn” awkwardly, not really understanding what was going on.  

“Did he buy breakfast here?” Shen Jintai asked rhetorically. He loves the breakfast at this shop the most so whether it was himself, Xiao Tang, or Yan Qiuchi, they all came here to buy breakfast for him.

“Yes, I recognized him at a glance!” The owner leaned over and said proudly: “Your partner is really handsome. Much more handsome than on TV!”

That’s true. Yan Qiuchi didn’t have that actor-like aura on camera like he did, but in reality, he was definitely a stunning, handsome guy.

The show had just aired last night, and his popularity was still fermenting, but some people have already begun to recognize Yan Qiuchi.

Shen Jintai first thought was: ‘It’s over. They might both have to wear masks when they go out in the future.’

At 10 that morning, the ratings for <Honey, Let’s Travel> came out. The premiere broke 3, breaking the ratings record for a premiere of a variety show for many years now. The audience of the drama were mainly young people, so its popularity online was even more frightening. In less than 12 hours of being online, it had already exceed 100 million hits.

The East Palace powder, gold powder, plum powder, fresh powder, rotten women, plus the fans accumulated from the first season of <Honey, Let’s Travel>, as well as countless melon-eating passersby were the main contributors to the rating of this variety show.

In just one episode after broadcast, Yan Qiuchi, the only amateur among the guests, have caught fire.

When the program group tasted sweetness, they became even more enthusiastic. The whole group met together to discuss the recording content for next week. They wanted to focus on two things. First, how to show off Yan Qiuchi’s charm as a male god as much as possible. Second, how to create a pink atmosphere as much as possible.

As soon as someone catch fire, more people would become familiar with them. Soon, someone unearthed a little secret about Yan Qiuchi:

“Oh my god, look what I found! Someone dug up Yan Qiuchi’s alt account. It’s Qiuchi Yingjintai ❤️!”

“I also saw it. Looking at the watches, brooches, and other characteristics they dug out. I’m pretty sure that it’s Yan Qiuchi no doubt. ”

“Oh, my god, those Weibo posts are too sweet, right? I believe he’s indeed Shen Jintai’s husband fan!”

“I was rolling on the bed when I saw it! Now it’s even better when I watch <Honey, Let’s Travel>!”


The author has something to say:

The husband fan is here!


Kinky Thoughts: You think Yan Qiuchi would’ve learn from Bai Qingquan, though his alt post is all sweetness for Shen Jintai.
