As a weak literature person, ZhongLi FengBai’s physical attributes had the lovely score of negative. He had never passed in things like running before! However, if a rabbit was scared, even it could bite. So, when Director Zhong was in a hurry, he could actually run quickly for a thousand meters or so as well.
“Stand still!” A bunch of thugs were chasing after him with bricks and wooden bats in hand, they were full of murderous intent!
ZhongLi FengBai felt like he was going to collapse!
Why did he not stay at home happily, but came out to buy a dog!
The beginning of everything was simple, yesterday, ZhongLi FengBai got off work early. As such, he decided to go have a romantic candle-lit dinner with Mu Qiu, they were going to look at the beautiful water fountain and listen to the symphonies that will be playing in the restaurant. Afterwards, they were going to go back home to a lovely water massaging bathtub, they were going to share long kisses together. At last, they were going to roll into bed and do stuff. They did the full set!
Of course, all the above weren’t important, what was important was after they had sex. Mu Qiu held ZhongLi FengBai in his embrace, saying sweet nothings the entire time to make him happy. At last, for some reason, their topic trailed to the little dog he had when Mu Qiu was young, he lost that dog.
ZhongLi FengBai was still dizzy back then, he didn’t hear what he said clearly. When he woke up, he only remembered that Mu Qiu talked about him once owning a dog but lost it. He also remembered that it was very sad! As such, Director Zhong suddenly got the idea to get him a new dog, so that he could mend the lost he felt in his heart. As for the excuse for getting the dog, he had already thought it through: He picked the dog up on the streets/park/shooting area…… Anything, as long as it wasn’t “He felt bad for him after hearing the story, so he went to the store to buy one”!
I definitely will not go to buy a present especially for a certain person! Director Zhong was cold and a Tsudere!
That was why!
Living beings such as!
Makes people feel!
After ZhongLi FengBai sent Mu Qiu away to work, Director Zhong called Qiu ZiYan to ask him which pet store is the best.
“There is a pretty good one in the West City area, but that place is a little too quiet.” Qiu ZiYan introduced it, “It’s under a western villa, but it might be a bit hard to find.”
“It’s okay. Can you send me the address?” Director Zhong was hell-bent on it now, because when Mu Qiu left the door, he gave him a sweet kiss, it was super-duper gentle and loving.
As such ZhongLi FengBai had fallen even deeper!?
Actually, he hadn’t!
Director Zhong continued to scream in protest in his heart!
Such a hotheaded and untruthful person!
“How about I ask Xiao Yu to drive you there, he doesn’t have to go to school today anyways.” Qiu ZiYan was very generous and said, “That place is really remote, you might not be able to find it.”
“Yes please, if you could.” ZhongLi FengBai was a bit bad with places, so he didn’t reject.
“The car can only reach the road outside, but the shop is in the walkway.” Qiu ZiYan continued, “I will send you the address, if you really can’t find it, Xiao Yu can find it with you.”
“Thank you very much.” ZhongLi FengBai reminded him, “You must keep this a secret though, please don’t tell anyone about it!”
He’s just buying a pet, why does he want to keep it a secret? Qiu ZiYan was a bit dumbfounded, but he didn’t ask the reason.
“Bring who to where?” Tan XiaoYu who was sitting next to him asked.
“Bring Director Zhong to the West City area.” Qiu ZiYan hung up the phone and said, “Do you still remember the restaurant where we ate BBQ?”
“I remember.” Perhaps because he used to work in casinos and stuff, his memory was really good.
“The place Director Zhong wants to go to is near that restaurant. You just need to walk towards east for about 5 minutes, you can just stop the car at BaiHua alley,” Qiu ZiYan ruffled his soft hair and said, “He’s going to a pet store, I’ll give you the address. If he can’t find it, bring him there.”
“Hmn.” Tan XiaoYu placed the ice-cream bucket aside, then stood up to get the car keys. He added, “Then have lunch yourself, go heat up the soup and eat the remaining biscuits. Don’t eat the braised pork that I made for Mai Ke.”
“How come you can have ice-cream in the morning, but I can’t have braised pork?” Qiu ZiYan protested.
“Because you need to take a nude photoshoot next month.” Tan XiaoYu squatted down to change shoes and added, “I will ask Mai Ke to come over and monitor you.”
Qiu ZiYan, “……”
Forming an alliance with the manager, then not letting his husband have food, that was just extra cruel!
Mu Qiu’s home wasn’t too far away from Qiu ZiYan’s, so Tan XiaoYu picked ZhongLi FengBai very soon after leaving the house. Tan XiaoYu brought him all the way to the West City area.
“Do you want me to accompany you?” When they got to the BaiHua alley, Tan XiaoYu stopped the car.
“No thanks. I can go in by myself.” The act of buying a dog for Mu Qiu was something that Director Zhong didn’t want anyone to know!
Buying a present!
To make Mu Qiu happy!
Of a literature person’s!
Hide it at all cost!
However, after just five minutes, Director Zhong regretted his decision.
As, he got lost.
Most of the West City area’s house were being teared down, he was surrounded by a bunch of gray old walls. The place was so quiet that it was frightening, plus the streets were all interconnecting, so Director Zhong successfully got himself lost!
After 15 minutes, ZhongLi FengBai called Tan XiaoYu, “Can I trouble you to come pick me up?”
How so very embarrassing!
“Where are you?” Tan XiaoYu asked.
Director Zhong, “……”
“You got lost?” Tan XiaoYu could guess.
Don’t say that out loud! Director Zhong screamed inside his heart!
“Are there any especially tall building near you?” Tan XiaoYu walked inside.
“……” ZhongLi FengBai looked around, except for gray walls, there were nothing.
“Okay. Stay there and don’t move around.” Tan XiaoYu felt helpless and said, “I’ll come in and find you.”
After Director Zhong hang the phone up, smoke came out of his head immediately.
He was going to wait for a kid to get him! How embarrassing!
After another few minutes, Director Zhong felt…… like he needed to pee.
Even a cold literature person like himself had needs! As such, ZhongLi FengBai chose a wall corner. He knew that dealing with it this way was very uncivilized, but he had to.
“Hey!” Suddenly someone shouted from behind him.
Director Zhong got a jump scare, he immediately pulled his fly up and turned around.
What bastard chose to show up at a time like this!
Does he want a fight or something?
That was when he saw five thugs holding bricks behind him.
Oh my god!
They really do want a fight!
“What are you people doing?” ZhongLi FengBai was alerted.
“Peeing in public, penalty fee,” The leading thug who had gold hair and had a cigarette in his mouth said, he was staring at him viciously.
Of course, these thugs didn’t watch new movies. When they read magazines, they most likely only look at female idols with huge breasts, as such they didn’t know ZhongLi FengBai.
There weren’t other people around, so ZhongLi FengBai obediently asked, “How much?”
“5000 Yuan.” The blondie was not letting him go easily.
“I don’t have that many.” ZhongLi FengBai pulled his wallet out, he took out all the cash in his wallet and handed it over, there were around 2000. Actually, to buy Mu Qiu a dog, he visited the bank to get some money, so he had 10000 Yuan in his pocket right now. However, no matter how idiotic he was, he would never just hand that over. Since these people were just using excuses to extort money from him, the more he gave them, the more they would want.
“That little? Leave your phone behind,” The thug waved the wooden bat in his hand as he said that, he was obviously trying to threaten ZhongLi FengBai.
“No,” ZhongLi FengBai immediately refused, the phone itself didn’t matter, but there were intimate photos of him and Mu Qiu in it, he could never let them leak out.
“No?” The thug laughed exaggeratingly, he turned his head around and said, “Did you boys hear that? He dares say ‘no’.”
According to Hong Kong gangsters movies’ logic, the little thugs would start laughing along with their leader, then use the weapons in their hands to scare their victims, that’s also to emphasize how string the leader was.
However, this was real life, not a TV series. A little thug who had ear piercings said in a hurry, “Boss, boss! He ran away!”
The blond thug turned his head around, just as the other thug said, ZhongLi FengBai was already running away.
“Follow him!” The blonde thug said angrily.
In the quiet alleys, a huge race unfolded. ZhongLi FengBai ran to the point that he felt he was going to stop breathing, but he still couldn’t find the exit. Instead of getting a better grasp of the landscape, he felt that he was getting dizzy and confused. He just knew that he was going to die this time!
At such a dire time, the hero would arrive and save the damsel in distress. That would be the most dramati…… scientific thing!
As such, Director Mu came out of nowhere to save him?
Of course, that was impossible! Actually, Tan XiaoYu finally found ZhongLi FengBai.
“Behind, there are people chasing after me,” Director Zhong said incoherently, he grabbed Tan XiaoYu’s arm and ran with him, “Quickly, run.”
“Catch them!” The blond hair thug shouted.
ZhongLi FengBai hurt his ankle as he was running, so he was actually running very slow now. Tan XiaoYu looked at the people behind ZhongLi FengBai, then he picked up a piece of wood lying on the streets, most likely left there from the recent demolition that were going on in the area.
“What are you going to do?” Before ZhongLi FengBai had the chance to say anymore, Tan XiaoYu already rushed forward and began fighting with the thugs.
Director Zhong was shocked, his eyes and mouth all opened widely in shock. He was just a skinny kid, how was he so vicious when he was fighting?!
“What’s the matter?” Ouyang Long and Su Nuo followed the sound and ran over.
“Quick, Xiao Yu, he is…” ZhongLi FengBai was leaning on the wall, his face was pale from the pain he felt at his ankle.
With Mr. Director’s help, the battle quickly ended. The thugs were bitten hard and fled. Tan XiaoYu wasn’t hurt, he only lost one shirt button.
“Your ankle is swelling,” Su Nuo said as he squatted down to examine ZhongLi FengBai’s wound, “Do you know where’s the hospital?”
“Let’s get in the car first.” Ouyang Long pulled ZhongLi FengBai up from the ground, “He should be fine.”
Having dragged everyone down into a fight, ZhongLi FengBai was feeling very guilty.
“Then, I’m going to go home,” Tan XiaoYu waved goodbye to them.
“Maybe you should go to the hospital for a checkup too,” Su Nuo said. “You just fought with so many thugs after all.”
“I’m fine. My clothes are a little dirty, that’s all.” Tan XiaoYu smiled, “I’ll be fine after I take a bath.”
“I’m really sorry for today.” ZhongLi FengBai didn’t even know how he should apologize anymore.
“It’s fine, you guys be careful on the way home.” Tan XiaoYu waved his hand, then turned around and got into his own car.
“Qiu ZiYan must be regretting lending me his driver1.” ZhongLi FengBai was very depressed.
“I was just about to ask, why were you guys together?” Su Nuo supported him and got him to sit on the backseat.
“I wanted to buy a dog, Qiu ZiYan was afraid that I would get lost.” Director Zhong accidentally told the truth.
“You are going to get a dog?” Su Nuo was ecstatic, talk about coincidences!
“No!” ZhongLi FengBai suddenly got nervous, “I’m not getting a dog!”
“……But you just said that you are here to get a dog,” Su Nuo said, he wasn’t going to let ZhongLi FengBai off the hook.
“You heard wrong, I’m here to buy a cat!” Ha! With this even if Mu Qiu heard of this accident, he wouldn’t relate it with buying a present for him!
“Director Mu is so busy with work every day, where do you get the time to raise a cat?” Su Nuo asked.
ZhongLi FengBai’s lie was uncovered, so he got a little mad and screamed, “What does me getting a cat have to do with him being busy?” There was zero correlation!
“Of course there is,” Su Nuo said seriously. He looked at ZhongLi FengBai and said, “You can’t even take care of yourself, how can you take care of a cat? So, if you get a cat, it will be Director Mu who will be taking care of it.”
ZhongLi FengBai, “……”
“So, I think you shouldn’t get a cat, he’s already very tired every day after work,” Su Nuo said seriously.
ZhongLi FengBai couldn’t refute a single point, so he could only change the subject, “So… what were you guys doing here?”
“I wanted to buy a puppy, so I came here to have a look,” Su Nuo replied enthusiastically.
Director Zhong immediately roasted him back, “Director Ouyang is so busy with his work and you want to get a puppy?”
Su Nuo immediately got angry, “We just saved you!” How could you be so mean even after that!
“Using people’s weakness against them means you’re not a virtuous person!” Director Zhong was cold.
As such the two of them began a lengthy battle with sharp words?
Of course not.
In reality, the two began fighting with their fists and legs.
The backseat was quickly shrouded in the smoking smell of battle!
Ouyang Long laughed in his heart, people who work in the literature industry are…… very special.
At the same time, on the upper floors of a housing estate, Mr. Qiu was conducting a serious questioning session.
“No one was giving me trouble this time.” Tan XiaoYu explained, “There were just some thugs chasing after Director Zhong, I was only fighting to help him.”
“really?” Qiu ZiYan pulled him in closer to have a look, “Did you get hurt anywhere?”
“No, I’m fine. There’s just a small graze on my arm,” Tan XiaoYu pulled up his sleeve and said, “It will be fine after applying some medicine.”
“If I have known this would happen, I wouldn’t have lent you out.” Qiu ZiYan helped him took the dirty shirt off, “Go, I’ll help you take a bath.”
“I can do that myself,” Tan XiaoYu rejected him decisively.
“Your arm is injured, how can you do that yourself?” Qiu ZiYan was also standing firm.
“It’s fine.” Tan XiaoYu turned around and ran away from him!
Then, of course he didn’t get away!
“What’s there to be embarrassed about with me,” Qiu ZiYan pulled him into his embrace.
Smoke began rising from Tan XiaoYu’s head, getting naked in front of him was embarrassing, no matter how you think about it!
Qiu ZiYan kissed his neck lovingly.
Tan XiaoYu’s face was immediately soaked in redness.
Mr. Qiu calmed himself, then thought, should he directly pick him up and bring him into the bathroom? That would be a lot more efficient!
However, before he had the chance to make a decision, his mobile phone that was lying on the table buzzed. What bad timing!
“Go pick up the phone,” Tan XiaoYu got away from him and said.
Qiu ZiYan’s mood was very bad, he answered the phone, “Who is it?”
“It’s me!” ZhongLi FengBai’s tone sounded like he was anxious and worried.
“……Are you okay?” Qiu ZiYan frowned.
“Can… can you asked Xiao Yu, ask whether he know where my phone is?” ZhongLi FengBai felt like his soul was scattering away. When he got to the hospital, he realized that his mobile phone was gone, that was such a shocking thing that it was suffocating!
“Do you know where Director Zhong’s phone is?” Qiu ZiYan asked.
Tan XiaoYu shook his head, “No.”
“Hello, Xiao Yu said he doesn’t know,” Qiu ZiYan told ZhongLi FengBai.
Then Qiu ZiYan clearly heard ZhongLi FengBai gasp air, then it turned noisy in the other end.
“Director?” Qiu ZiYan was shocked by the noise.
“What did you say to him just now?” Su Nuo picked up the phone that was dropped onto the ground, “Why did Director Zhong faint the second he heard what you said?”
Five hours later, ZhongLi FengBai was lying on a bed in the VIP ward. In front of the bed stood Ouyang Long, Su Nuo, Qiu ZiYan, Tan XiaoYu, and…… Mu Qiu!
“I really lost my phone,” Director Zhong said with a grieving face. All of them were trying to find it for him to no avail, that meant the phone must have been picked up by those thugs!
“It will be fine, your phone is pin locked!” Su Nuo comforted him.
“The password is just four ‘1’s, they’d be able to guess it in just a few tries.” As ZhongLi FengBai said that, he felt like choking himself. If he had known, he would have set the lock as get the “x” in the following function!
“Nah. They might have already forcefully wiped the phone and everything in it may already be gone!” Su Nuo asked seriously after comforting ZhongLi FengBai again, “But then again, what’s in your phone that you’re so worried about?” It was important enough to make him faint, that made Su Nuo super-duper curious.
ZhongLi FengBai glared at Mu Qiu angrily, his gaze was sharp like daggers.
“If there’s nothing more, then we’re leaving,” Ouyang Long stood up knowingly and brought the mouthy Su Nuo out with him.
“I really want to know though,” Su Nuo said with regret.
Not knowing is just so annoying!
Qiu ZiYan and Tan XiaoYu also bid them farewell and left. Mu Qiu sat on the side of the hospital bed, then helped pull the blanket that was covering ZhongLi FengBai up.
“All of this is your fault!” Director Zhong screamed.
You have to take those photos!
“Those aren’t actually that bad.” Mu Qiu lowered his head to kiss him, he said, “They are just some kissing photos2.”
“What if the photos got into the hands of the press!” ZhongLi FengBai grabbed his head harshly.
“Then what?” Mu Qiu looked straight into his eyes, “Is admitting that you are going out with me that difficult?”
“Humph!” After a short period of silence, Director Zhong pouted.
“I’m already prepared to stay with you for the entirety of my life.” Mu Qiu leaned down to hug him, “So, putting it out in the open, sooner or later is the same to me.”
In other words, he was saying that he was totally overreacting for nothing at all?! Director Zhong’s fragile nerves was stabbed by the thought!
As such, his hair rose up in embarrassment!
“What do you mean by that?” ZhongLi FengBai asked him as he frowned.
“Do you care that much about revealing our relationship to the public?” Mu Qiu asked.
What kind of a question was that! ZhongLi FengBai’s level of anger increased as he screamed, “Yes!”
The light in Mu Qiu’s eyes turned dim.
ZhongLi FengBai was a bit hurt by his look, so he raised his hand to slap his face.
Mu Qiu was dumbfounded.
The corners of ZhongLi FengBai’s eyes were all red, “You don’t trust me?”
“No, that’s not what I meant,” Mu Qiu felt a little guilty hearing that.
“If I didn’t want to be with you, I won’t sleep with you!?” ZhongLi FengBai said decisively, but then got embarrassed by his own statement…… so embarrassed that he cried.
This is just so very……
“Darling, I’m wrong, please don’t cry,” Mu Qiu said immediately as he was scared by ZhongLi FengBai crying.
“Go away.” ZhongLi FengBai hid himself inside the blanket.
“No, I’m not going anywhere.” Mu Qiu hugged him and said, “You can scold me, hit me, anything. Just don’t be angry at me, please?”
“I just don’t want to be gossiped about by third-rate magazines,” ZhongLi FengBai sounded depressed. If those thugs were actually able to recognize who he was, at most, they’d be able to find some third-rate magazines to leak them to.
“Hmn.” Mu Qiu carefully pulled the blanket down, he kissed ZhongLi FengBai’s cheeks and said, “Then we should get ahead of all the third-rate magazines out there.”
“What do you mean?” ZhongLi FengBai was confused.
“Let’s reveal our relationship to the public, how about that?” Mu Qiu looked ZhongLi FengBai in the eyes and asked.
“……Now?” ZhongLi FengBai was a bit nervous.
“Hmn.” Mu Qiu was completely serious.
Director Zhong’s heart was jumping like crazy!
On his heart were the Alpacas again!
Though he knew clearly that this day would come eventually!
However, when it came to this critical moment, he was still very nervous!
He was completely unprepared!
Mu Qiu didn’t continue forcing the subject, he just sat there quietly, holding ZhongLi FengBai in his embrace.
After an hour3, ZhongLi FengBai finally came to a decision.
“The day after tomorrow, there will be a movie exhibition. We should attend together, remember to wear formal attire.”
Mu Qiu’s face immediately glowed.
Director Zhong’s ears were all red, he grabbed a pillow and threw it at Mu Qiu’s face.
For some reason, Mu Qiu had the feeling that they were like a pair of old married couples! As such, after ZhongLi FengBai went back to rest, he called Ouyang Long to flex about this for an entire ten minutes!
“Are you done yet?” Mr. Director ground his teeth and asked.
“You must be really jealous of me right now, huh?” Mu Qiu sighed.
Ouyang Long decisively hung the phone up. Then he began wondering in his own heart, what it will be like when his little foodie decided to come out. What kind of a shocking and huge scene that would be!
Finally, his conclusion was that, not coming out was the best.
He is so stupid and had been pampered for his entire life. If things got too out of hand, he might not be able to handle the pressure, so…… he would most likely have to continue being his secret lover.
That was a bit regrettable though.
“Dear!” Su Nuo opened the balcony door, he raised his hand and complained, “I can’t find the sugar.”
Ouyang Long put his phone back into his own pocket and walked away from the balcony with his arm around Su Nuo’s shoulder.
To be honest, whether they come out or not, really didn’t seem to matter.
As long as they were together, then everything was okay.
“What are you doing?” Ouyang Long was shocked by the mess in the kitchen.
“I wanted to make some salty biscuits.” Su Nuo scratched his own face.
Mr. Director was really happy, how sweet, Su Nuo actually remembered that he didn’t like eating sweet things.
Then he heard Sn continue, “My big brother seemed to be really busy recently, so I wanted to bake some biscuits for him. I’m afraid that he will skip breakfast again.”
Ouyang Long’s sweet dream was cruelly shattered!
Reality is just so cruel!
“What is your brother busy with?” Ouyang Long asked nonchalantly.
Su XiaoNuo immediately tensed up, then he said seriously, “His MahJong business wasn’t going well recently, so he is anxious.”
Ouyang Long was angered by him so much that he laughed, he wondered, when was this buffoon going to come clean about his brother’s occupation?
Su Nuo adjusted the oven’s temperature, his heartbeat was raising a lot just now!
On the subject, he really didn’t know what his brother came back for this time. He just felt like he was very busy, how very hard working!
“Do you want me to drive you over tomorrow?” Ouyang Long asked.
“Ehh, no need.” Su Nuo refused, “My brother’s underground factory is very hidden, it’s not easy to find.” He lied so fluently!
Mr. Director’s feelings were so complicated that he couldn’t even explain all of them in words. However, he knew that he shouldn’t burst the bubble, so he decided to work especially hard at a special specific time, so as to punish this idiot who didn’t want to believe in him.
“Did you secretly put on some India God Oil 4, or something?” Su XiaoNuo was panting as he asked.
Ouyang Long pinched Su Nuo’s chin and replied, “Do you think your man need something like that?”
“I’m tired.” Su Nuo sounded helpless.
They had sex for too long.
“You don’t have to work tomorrow, so you can nap til noon.” Ouyang Long leaned down to kiss him.
“But I need to give the biscuits to my brother!” Su Nuo reminded him.
It would have been better if he didn’t remind Ouyang Long that.
The bed immediately shook even more!
Su XiaoNuo had tears all over his face.
What kind of a situation is this?
This is so unscientific!
- Nah, lending you a driver is fine, but he’s probably regretting lending you his lover. Lol
- lol, so the photos are just kissing photos… I was thinking of something a lot worst. Sorry, I’m evil.
- Mu Qiu, I salute you. Seriously? An hour!?
- Oil that’s applied on the tip of the penis, it contains a skin irritant that’s extracted from plants and anesthetic. The irritant makes erectile tissues in the penis blood-filled quicker, while the anesthetic make the penis less sensitive, so the sex would last longer. It’s called India God Oil for some reason, but it’s not made or from India. It’s produced by a company that’s founded in Hong Kong. lol basically I translated the Wikipedia page, since there’s no English Wikipedia page.
