Until he got on the plane, Nan HuaiLin’s scalp tingled as he remembered dancing in Times Square, and he felt as if his sweat hairs were standing up. At the time he was surrounded by a tidal wave of American people. Not only was Man Tianzhu filming, but many passers-by were holding up their cell phones and taking pictures. He was so nervous that he wanted to find a crack in the ground. When he was filming My Father, and he and Qi Gu played a passionate scene surrounded by the whole crew, he was never this nervous. Worse, the first two times he danced wrong, and the third time he barely passed. As soon as he finished dancing, he pulled Man Tianzhu and fled the scene.
On his way back to the hotel, Man Tianzhu simply edited the video with an app and posted it on Nan HuaiLin’s Weibo account with the caption: [I danced in Times Square [face] [face].]
“‘Nan HuaiLin Times Square’ is the number one trending video,” Man Tianzhu said with excitement as she looked at her phone. “It’s been retweeted 200,000 times in five hours, and commented 150,000 times. One million likes. Your Weibo is blowing up again.”
“Let me see the comments,” Nan HuaiLin said.
Man Tianzhu handed him her phone, and Nan HuaiLin clicked on the comments.
Nan HuaiLin Marry me today: [true-square dance23333]
I’mYourBiscuit: [Life to you, take it!]
LuJinQin Global Support Association President: [Crazy for you, crazy for you, clanging against the wall for you!]
55IW!: [Falling for the man in the suit!]
I’m going to swim in Nan HuaiLin’s abs for a while: [Jumping to see howl!]
Bling Bling: [I was circled for three days, and that shy smile at the end really killed it!]
Nan HuaiLin returned the phone to Man Tianzhu. “Their fans’ filters are too thick. None of them said I danced badly.”
Man Tianzhu smiled and said, “But you’re obviously a good dancer. Handsome and cute.”
Nan HuaiLin laughed, and looked down to send a text message to Fei Cheng: [The plane is about to take off, I’m turning off my phone.]
After he turned off his phone, Nan HuaiLin took out the script of Beast and started reading it from the beginning.
Man TianZhu leaned over, and took a look. “All English lines. Will it be hard to memorize?”
“It is indeed difficult,” Nan HuaiLin said. “So I have to work harder.”
Man TianZhu nodded. “I support you in spirit.”
Nan HuaiLin smiled. “Thanks.”
Nan HuaiLin couldn’t stop reading the script.
The protagonist of Beast was a Chinese student named Ke ZhiYuan, a graduate student in chemistry at Princeton University, who was accused of being a terrorist after an altercation over molestation by a professor.
Nan HuaiLin only closed the script when he was so tired he couldn’t keep his eyes open. He went to the bathroom to wash his face, came back to his seat, and not long after that was falling asleep.
He slept until the plane landed.
Nan HuaiLin put on his hat and mask, shrugged on his shoulder bag, and got off the plane with Man Tianzhu. While he was walking, he took out his phone and turned it on. Fei Cheng’s WeChat popped up immediately.
Mr. Rabbit: [Wife, I’m here.]
Nan HuaiLin replied with his head down: [Wait for me in the parking lot. Don’t go to the exit to pick me up.]
Fei Cheng quickly replied: [Yes!]
As expected, Nan HuaiLin was surrounded by an army of fans who met him as soon as he showed up. He always thought that these fans were really amazing. He didn’t know how they managed to keep track of his itinerary. They were able to catch him every time without fail.
Nan HuaiLin was known for his responsiveness to his fans, so he signed autographs and took pictures. It took more than half an hour to finish.
Fei Cheng was probably waiting impatiently. Nan HuaiLin was feeling anxious, when suddenly he saw Fei Cheng was standing outside the circle with sunglasses to cover his face, as he smiled and waved at him.
Nan HuaiLin smiled abruptly. He hurriedly stopped to take a picture with a fan, then smiled and said, “Sorry. I have something to do. I really have to go. You guys should hurry home too. Be safe on the way.”
The fans were very good and obedient. When they heard him say that, they didn’t make any more requests and didn’t follow him, they just let him and Man Tianzhu leave.
Fei Cheng wasn’t far behind them, but also not too close.
Man Tianzhu glanced back, and said with a smile, “Since your family is here, I won’t be a light bulb, bye.”
Nan HuaiLin said, “No. We’ll take you home on the way.”
“No. I don’t want to eat dog food, bye.” After she said that, Man Tianzhu walked away.
Nan HuaiLin walked to the elevator and stood still.
After a short wait, Fei Cheng stood next to him with one hand in his pocket.
“Hi, handsome.” Fei Cheng pulled down his sunglasses a bit to reveal a pair of smiling peach blossom eyes. “You look really familiar.”
Nan HuaiLin matched his performance. “Really? Who do I look like?”
Fei Cheng said, “My wife.”
Nan HuaiLin laughed and spat, “Old-fashioned.”
The elevator came. The people inside stepped out, and the people outside stepped in. There were others besides the two of them.
Fei Cheng leaned against the elevator, and quietly took Nan HuaiLin’s hand. Just a few seconds after he held it, the elevator reached the B1 floor, and they hurriedly let go.
Nan HuaiLin followed Fei Cheng, and walked out.
Fei Cheng’s legs were long, and he walked fast. Nan HuaiLin followed faithfully. If he wasn’t next to someone, he really wanted to jump on Fei Cheng’s back.
Fei Cheng was driving a Hummer today. He stood with his back against the door, very elegantly beside the passenger side, and watched Nan HuaiLin approach.
Nan HuaiLin walked up to him, the corners of his lips were already rising. “What do you mean? Going let me drive?”
Fei Cheng smiled and didn’t say anything. With a long hand, he pulled open the door of the back seat.
Nan HuaiLin froze for two seconds, before he understood what he meant. He was torn for a few seconds about his decision, then lowered his head and sat in the back seat.
Fei Cheng closed the door, went around to the other side and also sat in the back seat.
An hour later, the two men moved to the front seat.
“This is just the appetizer,” Fei Cheng’s voice was dark. “I’ll give you a big meal at home.”
Nan HuaiLin felt his underwear was dripping wet, sticky and uncomfortable. He blushed as he urged him to drive fast.
7:00 p.m. was the most congested time. The cars were stuck in a long line, and it was almost impossible to move.
Nan HuaiLin wanted to ask for help, but Fei Cheng didn’t give him the opportunity to speak. He grabbed him and kissed him incessantly, as if he wanted to swallow him into his belly. He really experienced what “a small farewell is better than a new marriage,” meant.
When the car started to move, Nan HuaiLin finally caught his breath. He looked at Fei Cheng and asked, “Why didn’t you tell me that MWK is your brother’s company?”
Fei Cheng said seriously, “Because I didn’t want you to get the wrong idea. That you were chosen on the basis of your connections.”
Nan HuaiLin was silent. “You really didn’t do anything?”
Fei Cheng smiled and said, “No. I haven’t talked to Lowden in over a year.”
“Mn,” Nan HuaiLin said. “I believe you.”
Fei Cheng said, “I saw the video of you dancing in Times Square. It was really cool.”
Nan HuaiLin’s scalp tingled at the thought. “Forget it. I was going crazy during the shoot. Hundreds of people were watching me. I’ve never been so nervous in my life.”
Fei Cheng laughed and said, “Go home and dance with me alone.”
“No way.” Nan HuaiLin refused flatly.
“Then I’ll dance for you,” Fei Cheng said.
“You can dance?” Nan HuaiLin was surprised.
“Your husband is a multi-talented man,” Fei Cheng said with a smile. “I’m afraid I’ll scare you if I show too much at once, so I’m going to take it easy and let you dig in slowly.”
“Stop bragging about yourself.” Nan HuaiLin was convinced, but just wanted to beat him.
“Hey, you’re deliberately provoking me, right?” Fei Cheng smiled and said. “I’ll eat this, and when I get home, I’ll have to convince you.”
“Good,” Nan HuaiLin said. “I’ll reward you for a good dance.”
Fei Cheng flashed his eyebrows. “Reward what?”
Nan HuaiLin was very secretive. “You’ll know when the time comes.”
With all the traffic, the two arrived home at almost ten o’clock. Nan HuaiLin said hello to Lancelot, and went upstairs to see the baby dragons. The dragons were already asleep. Nan HuaiLin crept into their rooms and looked at them one by one. He was about to leave when Dragon Two suddenly woke up, fluttered his wings and flew into his arms, his little head arched and moved around on his chest.
What a little trickster.
Nan HuaiLin found it helpless and funny, so he just lifted up his T-shirt. Dragon Two immediately found his place, opened his mouth and sucked vigorously.
Although this was not the first time, Nan HuaiLin still felt it was very uncomfortable, both physically and psychologically. He could only adapt to it slowly, and with a hard head.
When Fei Cheng came over to see him after the bath, he saw that Dragon Two was breastfeeding and whispered indignantly, “I can’t believe this kid got the jump on me.”
Nan HuaiLin cried and laughed. “You go out first. I’ll come over after feeding him.”
Fei Cheng wrapped his arms around him from behind, rested his chin on his shoulder and muttered, “No, I want to stick to you.”
With a little one in his arms and a big one in his back, Nan HuaiLin felt happy against the solid warmth of his chest.
Nan HuaiLin carefully put the baby back in his nest, and went out with Fei Cheng. The two of them went to the bathroom together, where the bath water was already spilling out of the bathtub.
Fei Cheng shut off the tap, and turned around to undress Nan HuaiLin.
“I’ll take them off myself.” Nan HuaiLin squirmed a little.
“I’ll do it. You don’t move,” Fei Cheng’s voice was low and dark, with a seductive power.
Nan HuaiLin then stood obediently, like a beautiful doll, and allowed Fei Cheng to manipulate his body. Every subtle touch made his heart beat faster.
Fei Cheng took him into the bathtub and let him soak while he closed and locked the bathroom door, then took out his phone and played a flirty-sounding English song.
“Watch this,” Fei Cheng said. “Hubby is going to start dancing.”
“Here?” Nan HuaiLin was surprised. “Stop it. The floor is full of water. What if you fall down?”
“No,” Fei Cheng said with a smile. “Don’t worry.”
Fei Cheng began to sway to the music, not to mention, quite like that.
After a short period of sensuous dancing, he began to get serious, as he danced and undressed. He unbuttoned his shirt one by one, revealed his strong pecs and abs, then pulled off his belt and took off his pants at the end.
Nan HuaiLin didn’t realize until then that Fei Cheng was dancing with his shirt off.
The image was so embarrassing that it was a brow-raising sight. Nan HuaiLin raised his hand to cover his face, but he couldn’t help peeking out through his fingers, and laughed as he watched. His whole being was hot.
The music ended, and Fei Cheng finally stripped himself naked.
He walked into the bathtub, sat down facing Nan HuaiLin, extended his long legs and circled them around him. He kissed him first before he smiled and asked, “Did I dance well?”
Nan HuaiLin smiled and blushed. “Yes, especially good.”
Fei Cheng said, “I could dance better if I had a pole.”
“Please stop.” Nan HuaiLin was laughing so hard he couldn’t breathe.
“Don’t laugh,” Fei Cheng said seriously. “I rewarded you since you danced well. What do you want to reward me with?”
Nan HuaiLin could hardly hold back his laughter. He cupped both hands around Fei Cheng’s ears and twisted them, then looked him in the eyes and said, “I’ll reward you with a night of sex, okay?”
