After dinner, Nan HuaiLin let Man Tianzhu take the girls on a free day out with shopping and singing, expenses reimbursed, just to celebrate the establishment of the studio and give them a day off.
He naturally wouldn’t go on the girls’ activities, not to mention that he was a luminous body now. Everywhere he went he got incomparable attention, so if he followed, they couldn’t have fun.
With everyone gone, only Fei Cheng and Nan HuaiLin were left in the booth.
The shrimp shells, crab shells and other shells in front of Fei Cheng were piled up into a small mountain, which was so spectacular that the waiter was shocked when he came in to change the tableware. Nan HuaiLin thought Fei Cheng was probably now on the blacklist of this restaurant.
Nan HuaiLin took two tissues to wipe Fei Cheng’s hands. Fei Cheng lowered his head to kiss him, and Nan HuaiLin deliberately put on a face of disgust. “Stop it. A mouth of oil.” When Fei Cheng really stopped kissing him, he looked condemned again. “Why are you so indecisive? Just say no and stop kissing?”
“You’ve grown up. How dare you tease me? Is it fun, huh?” Fei Cheng smiled dotingly, went over and gave him a peck on his lips. Then he looked at him and said, “Just now…Why did you suddenly admit that I am your husband? You were so shy at first, afraid that people would find out what was going on.”
“Oh,” Nan HuaiLin looked at him with arched eyebrows. “You feel aggrieved?”
“Don’t bully me,” Fei Cheng pinched his face. “Answer my question head on.”
Nan HuaiLin said, “Because she asked, I had to tell the truth.”
Fei Cheng said, “You’re not going to say anything if no one asks?”
“I don’t want to say anything if no one asks. I hate love shows,” Nan HuaiLin said with a smile after a pause. “Besides, I’m afraid they’ll be jealous of me. Too jealous.”
Fei Cheng was so relieved by his wife’s ass-kissing that he gave him a kiss, and said with a smile, “Let’s go. Hubby will take you home.”
Nan HuaiLin said, “I can give them a holiday, but I don’t have the right to give you a holiday, so go back to work.”
Fei Cheng said, “I’ve changed jobs.”
“Huh?” Nan HuaiLin froze. “How come I didn’t know?”
“From today, I’m a family man,” Fei Cheng said with a smile “Wife, from now on you have to support me.”
Nan HuaiLin suddenly remembered that Fei Cheng had indeed told him that he would quit his job at Ming Xi after the studio was established, go home to be with his wife and raise their sons.
“What did your brother say?” Nan HuaiLin asked.
“I went to work at Ming Xi for fun,” Fei Cheng said. “My brother didn’t even bother with me, so I did whatever I wanted.”
Nan HuaiLin said, “Now it seems that your brother is really spoiling you.”
Fei Cheng suddenly sighed and said, “If it wasn’t for taking care of me, my brother would have chosen to break his bones, and die with the person he loved.”
“You can’t think like that.” Nan HuaiLin held his hand for a moment, in silence, and said, “Maybe we can do something for your brother to make him happy again.”
Fei Cheng said, “You mean Ruan Xin?”
“Yes.” Nan HuaiLin nodded. “Didn’t you say the other day that Assistant Ruan was sick. Is he well?”
“He only took a day off, then went back to work.” Fei Cheng paused. “But my brother and Ruan Xin’s matter, we can’t intervene unless the parties involved are willing. Otherwise anything we do will be in vain, and is likely to be counterproductive.”
Nan HuaiLin thought about it. “I’m as well as certain that Assistant Ruan is fond of your brother, but I don’t know what your brother has in mind for Assistant Ruan. Do you have any idea?”
Fei Cheng shook his head, “My brother never told me anything. I also don’t dare ask him.”
“Even if you ask him, he won’t say anything.” Nan HuaiLin suddenly sighed. “Although I’m a little bit sorry to say this for Lan, but I really hope that Assistant Ruan and your brother can be together.”
Fei Cheng rubbed his hair. “Don’t think about it. Let’s go home.”
After the studio was set up, Nan HuaiLin didn’t it feel much, but Man Tianzhu, who was the manager, was fiercely busy. Suddenly there were a lot more things for her to do, so the assistant job was given to a girl named Zeng Cui, along with a full-time driver named Park Jong Ho, a young Korean man in his early thirties who was very secure looking.
On Wednesday, Nan HuaiLin was going to shoot a perfume commercial for YSL.
As soon as Dragon Two would wake up from a nap, he’d immediately come over and ask for milk. Fei Cheng had recently developed the bad habit of doing morning exercises every morning before Dragon Two arrived.
Nan HuaiLin was woken up early by him, and said in a muffled voice, “Don’t plant strawberries. I have to be topless for the commercial.”
Fei Cheng came in and out gently from behind, crossed his neck and kissed his shoulder. “Good morning, baby.”
“Mmm…Good morning.” Nan HuaiLin pressed his hands on his waist. “Hurry up. I have to leave early today.”
Fei Cheng said, “Then let’s go to the bathroom, and we’ll do it while you shower.”
Nan HuaiLin softly mmned. He didn’t know whether it was good or not. Fei Cheng then carried the person to the bathroom.
It took almost an hour for the two to get out of the bathroom. Dragon Two was already on the bed, and was dropping a bunch of tears.
Nan HuaiLin glared at Fei Cheng reproachfully, picked up the aggrieved Dragon Two and started breastfeeding.
Fei Cheng opened his closet to look for clothes. “It’s Wednesday.”
He deliberately put an accent on the word “Wednesday.”
“Yeah,” Nan HuaiLin turned his head to look at him. “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing,” Fei Cheng threw his clothes on the bed. “I just said that.”
Nan HuaiLin, “Oh.” He said, “How come Dragon Two hasn’t switched since he changed into human form once? We said that after feeding it into human form, I would feed Dragon One and the others one by one.”
Fei Cheng said while putting on his clothes, “Maybe he knows you think that, so in order to be able to continue to eat milk so he doesn’t change.”
Nan HuaiLin laughed. “How old is he? You think he’s as smart as you are.”
Fei Cheng said, “Don’t believe me. Of the four dragon cubs, he is the most thievish. Otherwise, how does he know how to eat milk, but he doesn’t share information with his brothers, and keeps eating alone. He’s too thievish.”
Well…it seemed to make sense.
Nan HuaiLin looked down at Dragon Two, “Son, the time has come to prove your innocence. You will become a human tonight, and hit your father’s face with your actions, okay?”
Dragon Two was eating his milk, and didn’t even look at him.
“Hey Wife, what day of the lunar calendar is it today?” Fei Cheng asked.
“The third day of March,” Nan HuaiLin said. “Little Lan said it not two days ago.”
Fei Cheng gritted his teeth. “Oh.” Then said, “I’m going to make breakfast.”
Fei Cheng was a decent family man. He did all the breakfasts and dinners. He took care of the babies, and he also became Nan HuaiLin’s English teacher, as he corrected his pronunciation and memorized the lines of Beast with him.
With Fei Cheng in the house, Lancelot was free to catch up on the dramas. He had just watched two episodes of Star Country yesterday, and praised Nan HuaiLin for his good performance.
Nan HuaiLin asked him, “What do you think of the actor who plays Lu GuanLan?”
Lancelot understood in a second. “What, you want to introduce us?”
Nan HuaiLin smiled and asked, “Are you interested?”
Lancelot said, “He’s not my type.”
Nan HuaiLin had to say, “Then I’ll keep an eye out for you.”
At breakfast, Nan HuaiLin was shocked by Lancelot’s panda eyes. “What did you do last night? What did you do last night? You have such heavy dark circles under your eyes?”
Lancelot said listlessly, “I stayed up all night and watched 20 episodes of Star Country in one sitting.”
Nan HuaiLin, “…Do you have to work so hard?”
Fei Cheng asked casually, “What did you see?”
Lancelot said, “I saw Lu JinQin take Hua ZhiYu to the Ghostbusters.”
Fei Cheng said, “Then Lu JinQin raped Hua ZhiYu, and then Lu GuanLan came to avenge Hua ZhiYu and knocked Lu JinQin off the cliff–“
“Ah…!!!” Lancelot let out an angry roar that scared Nan HuaiLin and the four little dragons, “Who told you to give spoilers? I’ll beat you up, you turtle!”
One ran and the other chased, as they scurried all over the room.
Nan HuaiLin laughed and shook his head. “Childish.” He stroked Dragon Three’s little head. “Eat, don’t look. Later your big brother will come to grab your meat again.”
After breakfast, Nan HuaiLin had to go to work.
Fei Cheng saw him out, and looked up at the sky. “It’s a beautiful day on Wednesday.”
Nan HuaiLin laughed at him. “If it’s a nice day, it’s a nice day. Why emphasize Wednesday?”
Fei Cheng sighed imperceptibly. “When can you finish shooting?”
Nan HuaiLin said, “It’s hard to say. The commercials of big brands should be quite strict, and they may not be finished in a day.”
Fei Cheng said, “Come back early. I get dizzy and short of breath if I don’t see you for too long.”
“That bad?” Nan HuaiLin came over to give him a kiss. “Will this make it better?”
Fei Cheng shook his head. “It takes a deep French kiss.”
“Nice try.” The car was waiting at the gate. “I’m leaving, bye.”
Fei Cheng dragged him over, and gave him another kiss before letting him go.
When he got into the car, Nan HuaiLin asked his assistant, who had just taken up her post two days ago, “Are all the things I asked you to prepare yesterday ready?”
Zeng Cui nodded repeatedly. “Yes. Who’s having a birthday?”
Nan HuaiLin couldn’t help but think of Fei Cheng’s various explicit hints just now. “Today is my husband’s birthday. I want to give him a surprise.”
