“Dinner’s ready!” Nan HuaiLin’s voice came through the door.

Fei Cheng immediately hung up on Shen Chong, opened the door and walked into the dining room connected to the kitchen. There were four dishes neatly arranged on the marble dining table, with a small pot of soup in the middle. The hot air was hovering in the warm yellow light of the chandelier, creating a warm and peaceful atmosphere.

Fei Cheng sat down and Nan HuaiLin put a bowl of rice with a soft fragrance in front of him, a little nervous and a little expectant, saying, “Taste it.”

Fei Cheng picked up his chopsticks and took a bite of the tofu with meat without comment, then took a bite of the stir-fried broccoli and remained silent.

Nan HuaiLin couldn’t help but ask, “Is it okay?”

Fei Cheng tasted the chicken curry and stir-fried pork with green peppers, and finally drank half a bowl of tofu soup before he said, “What’s that commercial saying? “If you meet a great chef, marry him?’ I want to marry you now.”

Nan HuaiLin knew he was exaggerating, but he couldn’t help but be happy and said with a smile, “I can’t afford to marry you.”

Fei Cheng smoothly said, “Then I’ll marry you.”

Nan HuaiLin laughed it off. “Hurry up and eat it while it’s hot.”

Fei Cheng had not eaten such appetizing, home-cooked food for a long time, and thought it was much better than the flashy dishes in Michelin restaurants. He was right, Nan HuaiLin was really too virtuous, good feeling UP!

After eating in a quiet manner and relieving his hunger, Fei Cheng began to chew and swallow slowly while eating, “By the way, do you remember the 18th line artist cleansing program I mentioned earlier?”

Nan HuaiLin nodded, “Yes, you said we have to take the test, the best will stay and the worst will go.”

“That’s right,” Fei Cheng said. “The detailed plan is already out, and we’ll start implementing it tomorrow.”

Nan HuaiLin put down his chopsticks and propped both arms on the dining table, his big black eyes shining brightly at the person across from him, “Teacher Fei, can you help me highlight the key points in the exam?”

Fei Cheng said, “Ming Xi is planning to make an inspirational web drama on swimming, tentatively titled ‘Chasing New Dreams.’ The swimming team will consist of twelve people, six men and six women, all will be Ming Xi’s unknown actors. The casting of this drama is an examination, those who can successfully get the role will stay, otherwise they will be eliminated. It’s as simple as that.”

Nan HuaiLin said happily, “I was on the school swim team in high school.”

Fei Cheng smiled, “Then it looks like you’re a sure thing.”

After a few seconds, the expression on Nan HuaiLin’s face suddenly froze.

Fei Cheng asked, “What’s wrong?”

Nan HuaiLin said, “I auditioned for Star Country a few days ago, and Director Luo verbally said he would give me the second male role, but I haven’t heard anything since then.”

Fei Cheng said, “You don’t have to worry about that. The pre-production of Star Country is basically finished. As long as the actors are chosen, we can start filming. However, ‘Chasing New Dreams’ is just starting to be prepared. I just advanced the casting in order to carry out the cleansing, so it’s still too early to start shooting, maybe Star Country will be finished by then.”

Hearing him say that, Nan HuaiLin was slightly relieved.

Anyway, he could not wait any longer. He had to take the initiative and go to the company tomorrow to talk to Shan Mingen, and ask what was going on with Star Country.

The two of them ate and talked, and before they knew it, they had wiped clean the four dishes and one soup.

When the time came to wash the dishes, Nan HuaiLin was a bit worried. After eating so much for dinner, he realized it was absolutely impossible not to exercise. However, the membership card he had was for a gym in Shuangqiao, and now he had moved to Dongdan. It was impossible to go that far just for the gym, and he couldn’t afford a new card at a nearby gym. Moreover, there were too many people and cars to run at night. What to do?

Nan HuaiLin turned around when he heard Fei Cheng calling him, “Huh?”

“I’m going swimming,” Fei Cheng said, “Do you want to join me?”

Nan HuaiLin was instantly excited, “Yes, yes! Where are we going to swim?”

Fei Cheng smiled and said, “The district is equipped with a swimming pool, didn’t you know?”

“Oh, really? I haven’t been there yet, so I didn’t know.” Nan HuaiLin wiped his hands on his apron and suddenly stopped, “But I don’t have any swimming trunks…”

Fei Cheng said, “Wear mine.”

The two of them went downstairs together and went to the dressing room to change into their swimming trunks first.

Nan HuaiLin looked down at the swim trunks that were hanging loosely from his crotch like big pants, and then swept a glance at the bulge between Fei Cheng’s legs that was outlined by the snug swim trunks. The difference between them was really big.

Fei Cheng also quietly glanced at Nan HuaiLin’s upturned buttocks and the clear, smooth muscle lines, and felt a surge of heat rushing downwards. If he got a hard-on at this time, it would be too embarrassing. Fei Cheng dared not look any more, so he turned around and walked out with Nan HuaiLin silently following him.

The pool was superb. It was round, with two thick Roman columns standing in the middle, and it was surrounded by lush greenery. It was a very nice environment.

While entering into the water, Nan HuaiLin was surprised to find that the water was actually warm. It was a bit of a hot spring feeling.

“Compete?” Fei Cheng asked with a smile, “Show me the strength of your school’s swim team.”

Nan HuaiLin was not afraid, “How do you want to compete?”

Fei Cheng said, “Five laps. Whoever is fastest wins.”

Nan HuaiLin answered, “No problem. Let’s start.”

Fei Cheng added, “The loser will be punished.”

“Huh?” Nan HuaiLin asked, a little bit timid. “What kind of punishment?”

“What? Are you afraid of losing?” Fei Cheng deliberately provoked him.

“I’m not afraid,” Nan HuaiLin said, while he moved his neck. “I can’t say about other sports, but swimming is my strong point.”

Fei Cheng held back his laughter. “Okay, then…The loser will carry the winner home. How about that?”

“No problem,” Nan HuaiLin said readily.

“Then let’s get started.” Fei Cheng twirled his arm, “One, two, three!”

Both of them plunged into the water at the same time, legs stomping on the wall. They swam out like two big fish, side by side, and kept this state.

By the fifth lap, Fei Cheng lagged behind, unnoticed. He even stopped to admire Nan HuaiLin’s beautiful swimming posture and fit body for a while. He waited until Nan HuaiLin was about to reach the finish line before catching up.

Nan HuaiLin stood up straight with one hand on the pool wall, wiped a handful of water from his face, saw Fei Cheng swimming towards him and excitedly slapped the water. “I won!”

Fei Cheng quickly swam to his side and said with a smile, “You are worthy of being on your school’s swimming team. You are great.”

Nan HuaiLin was a little proud of himself, patted Fei Cheng’s shoulder with great care, and said with a gasp, “You’re not bad either. You’re only a little slower than me.”

Fei Cheng felt that Nan HuaiLin was panting very erotically, and more erotic images popped up in his mind, so he hurriedly shook his head, and the water in his hair sprinkled onto Nan HuaiLin’s face.

“Still swimming?” Nan HuaiLin asked.

“I’m a little tired,” Fei Cheng said, “I want to go up and rest.”

“Then you can rest, I’ll swim some more.” This amount of exercise was not enough for Nan HuaiLin.

Fei Cheng went ashore and sat on a sun lounger by the pool with a towel, watching Nan HuaiLin swimming around in the pool with fascination.

“Handsome, do you mind if I sit here?”

Fei Cheng turned his head and saw a beautiful woman in a bikini with a slender face, smiling at him.

Fei Cheng smiled, “Please sit down.”

The beautiful woman took her seat and found various topics to chat about with him. At first, Fei Cheng politely responded, but he gradually lost his patience and got up to greet Nan HuaiLin who had swam to the edge of the pool.

Fei Cheng stood at the edge of the pool, while Nan HuaiLin was standing in the water. He looked from the bottom to the top, and Fei Cheng’s vital point was particularly shocking, Nan HuaiLin could not bear to look.

Fei Cheng quietly winked at him, “Baby, don’t swim any longer, let’s go home.”

Nan HuaiLin glanced at the nearby beautiful woman who was looking this way. He immediately understood and said, “Yes,” before quickly climbing out.

“Tired, right?” Fei Cheng turned his back to him and stretched his hands backwards. “Come, husband will carry you.”

Nan HuaiLin felt like the jealousy in the beauty’s eyes was about to burn him. Even so, he still climbed onto Fei Cheng’s back and whispered in his ear. “Are you addicted to acting?”

Fei Cheng was so distracted by the smoothness of the skin-to-skin contact that he didn’t hear what Nan HuaiLin said, but only felt his breath on his ear, making it both numb and itchy.

When they got to the locker room, Fei Cheng put him down. The two of them simply took a shower, put on their clothes and went home.

Fei Cheng said, “I’ll carry you.”

“No,” Nan HuaiLin said, “you’ve already carried me.”

“That doesn’t count,” Fei Cheng said, turning his back to him. “You made the bet. Come on up.”

Nan HuaiLin had no choice but to climb on his back again.

When he buried his face in Fei Cheng’s shoulder, he smelled a faint familiar smell. It was the smell of ‘Sin City.’ Suddenly, he remembered that night of lightning and thunder when he and Fei Zheng…

Nan HuaiLin hurriedly pushed out the messy association, but still couldn’t help asking, “Do you like the ‘Sin City’ perfume too?”

“Too?” Fei Cheng caught the word sensitively.

Nan HuaiLin was silent for a moment and said, “My ex-boyfriend also liked to spray this perfume.”

Fei Cheng was a little jealous. “I don’t like this perfume. It’s my brother who likes it, so I sprayed it twice, but I didn’t expect the smell to linger for so long.”

Nan HuaiLin gave a low “oh.”

When he entered the elevator, Nan HuaiLin reached out to press the button and said, “That girl just now was pretty and well-built. Don’t you like her?”

Fei Cheng said, “No.”

Nan HuaiLin was curious. “Then what do you like?”

“You’ll see,” Fei Cheng said. “What about you? What do you like?”

Nan HuaiLin was silent for a few seconds and said, “I like what I like.”

Fei Cheng tasted the answer and thought it was really good.

Fei Cheng didn’t put Nan HuaiLin down until they were inside the apartment. The two said good night to each other and then went to their respective rooms to sleep.

Fei Cheng once again had an erotic dream.

It featured exciting pool play.

After he woke up, he was in a trance for a long time because of the soul-crushing feeling.


The author has something to say. 

Cheng Cheng, “I think you look like a booger.”

Nan Nan, “?!!!”

Cheng Cheng, “It makes me want to pick you.”
