After Mrs. Shen and Mrs. Ye reached a friendly agreement, they entered the movie theater together with movie tickets.
Shen Du had already planned and booked a private couples room in advance, so Ye Nanqi didn’t have to worry about being discovered. Only after he went in with him, that he realized something later and was a little embarrassed.
It was nothing to watch a movie, but… to watch the movie he was starring in with Shen Du was a little weird.
Fortunately, the male supporting role he played this time didn’t have any strange scenes and Ye Nanqi gladly thought that it was a fortubate that Shen Du didn’t know that he had acted as a male prostitute before.
Before the movie was shown, Shen Du leaned against the sofa with Ye Nanqi in his arms, and said jokingly, “I’ve always wanted to watch your movie with you. Many fans on the Internet say that if they could watch the male god’s movie with the male god, they would die without regrets. Baby, it seems that I, too, will die without regrets.”
Ye Nanqi frowned, his eyes were as cold as ice as he poked him with an elbow. “What’s with this dying all about. Don’t keep saying that all the time. I’m your husband. What are you comparing with the little girls chasing stars?”
Shen Du said earnestly, “After watching your movie, I have successfully changed from a face fan to a die-hard fan. So Mr. Ye, can I sleep with you? It is said that being able to sleep with the male god is also a thing that can make people… have no regrets.”
Ye Nanqi didn’t want to be polite with him, and said with a blank face, “Are you still not getting enough sleep?”
Shen Du stared at Ye Nanqi who was close at hand, the neckline of his thin summer clothes was slightly open, showing the faint red marks on his chest, all of which were all sucked by himself. Feeling perfectly satisfied in an instant, he said with the face of a hooligan, “I don’t get enough sleep.”
After a few rounds of chattering, the movie began to show.
Ye Nanqi was the fourth male actor. Although it was a character with a brilliant personality, there were not too many scenes. After all, it was only a supporting role, how could they let the supporting actor overwhelm the lead actor.
He thought that Shen Du would want to do other things in the name of watching movies and there would have been countless harassment in the process. Unexpectedly, Shen Du watched the movie seriously, staring at the screen intently, with his arms tugging around his slender waist, reluctant to let go even half a minute.
The movie plot was good, the production was excellent, and the reviews were also good. But watching it so seriously, Ye Nanqi only felt complicated in his heart.
He liked filming, but after the matter was over, whether he could continue in showbiz, or whether he could continue filming, was another question.
Halfway through, Shen Du suddenly asked, “Nan Nan, what’s the end of Cui Hao?”
Ye Nanqi stared at himself on the screen―his expression had already become another person. He smiled and said, “We haven’t finished watching it yet, it’s boring to have too many spoilers.”
Shen Du said, “I just have a bad feeling.”
Ye Nanqi looked back at him. “En, he died in the end.”
Shen Du was silent for a while.
When the movie reached two-thirds of the play, in order to cover the protagonist, Cui Hao, played by Ye Nanqi, threw a bomb and pulled all the people in a warehouse to death. The death without a whole body was quite tragic.
Ye Nanqi felt that the hand on his waist tightened again, making him almost couldn’t feel his waist and couldn’t breathe well. He turned his head and saw Shen Du staring at the screen, his face was gloomy, and there was obvious panic and fear in his eyes. Feeling helpless, he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “It’s just a movie, Mr. Shen, please don’t be so absorbed in the play. You are not a widow yet.”
Shen Du turned his eyes away, stopped looking at the screen. He buried his head in Ye Nanqi’s neck, and spoke with a warm breath, “Nan Nan, I was just thinking, if I came too late, you would do the same…”
Ye Nanqi patted his back to comfort.
When Shen Du raised his head, his eyes turned red. “Ever since I knew about you, I have often had nightmares, dreaming that you went to fight with those people alone and ended up dying together.”
It was impossible for Ye Nanqi to defeat those people with his own strength. Previously he was fighting alone, and in the end, there was no other way but to choose death.
Ye Nanqi repeated in a low voice, “No.”
Shen Du earnestly said, “Nan Nan, the Shen family’s family motto is very old-fashioned. We have been taught since childhood that it is a lifetime thing if we really fall in love with someone. It has been more than ten years since my aunt passed away, and my uncle has never thought about remarrying, setting his heart in stone. Think about how miserable I would be. If something happened to you, I would have to work overtime every day to process documents and die sooner or later.”
Ye Nanqi’s heart was completely softened that he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. He gave him a punch and said, “What nonsense.”
It was hot in summer but Shen Du still hugged him tightly, and the big summer heat didn’t feel that hot for the hugging couple. He then muttered to himself, “That’s why I can’t lose you.”
Ye Nanqi returned his hug while the screen behind him slowly turned black. They embraced in silence and darkness, and the voice on the screen seemed to float from a distance. “Shen Xiaodu… If you have no opinion, we will make it public after a while, how about it?”
Shen Du raised his head in amazement.
“But you have to compensate me for a wedding.” Ye Nanqi pretended to be concerned about the optional ceremony with a serious expression.
Shen Du hugged him tightly, and after a long while, he said, “…baby, I can hold a wedding for you every day.”
When they returned home after watching the movie, Shen Du had already returned to his normal self. He answered a few calls, and the tone of each call was the same, as if the scene was finely schizophrenic. Ye Nanqi wanted to laugh when he heard it, and when Shen Du finished the seventh call, he asked, “All taken the bait?”
Recently, Shen Du picked up a few brothers. At the beginning, there were all kinds of rumors and alarmism, focusing on scaring the small companies involved in the Organization. The other parties that were afraid of being pushed out as a scapegoat, as well as afraid of being found out by the police, had the intention of breaking away from the Organization and finding a big tree to take shelter from the wind.
With some introduction, many found the Shen family.
Shen Du then brought his people to lead them around in circles, waiting for everyone to jump in and harvest them all at once.
Shen Du pinched his face. “Almost there. Has Bai Yu contacted you yet?”
Ye Nanqi shook his head.
Bai Yu has not contacted him until now. It was either his previous guesses about Bai Yu were all wrong, or Bai Yu was too calm.
Or perhaps… he was being watched by Xue Jingshan.
Xue Jingshan’s psychology seemed to be really abnormal. According to Xue Xiangyu, he was madly infatuated with Bai Yu, but he refused to admit it to others. Bai Yu also didn’t seem to like him much. He probably had to deal with him before, but now that he didn’t do anything perhaps because he just didn’t want to have an acrimonious falling-out.
To see what Bai Yu would do, that could only depend on the party in a few days.
Two days later, sure enough, someone sent an invitation with a mask, and on the invitation was the specific location of the party.
Ye Nanqi read the invitation over and over, “In such an emergency, as long as their brains are not flooded, they won’t get together for a drink. Xue Jingshan doesn’t trust you. This location may be fake, or they are going to have a healthy and upward banquet.”
“Whether it’s true or not…” Shen Du took a photo of the address on the invitation and passed it to Li Hengran, “Anyway, I won’t come back without success because I have to work hard for my fairy.”
Ye Nanqi looked up at him. “What if they do some disgusting activities?”
Shen Du asked back, “Can I become hostile and hit someone at the scenes”
A smile flashed in Ye Nanqi’s eyes. “No, you can hold your temper. Otherwise, if I can’t find you later, I have to go to Xue Xiangyu.”
Shen Du said coldly, “I can strangle him to death with one hand.”
On the day of the party, Ye Nanqi and Shen Du changed their clothes and drove off to the party location. The address of the villa was quite remote, and it was dark and the weather was not very good, like it was going to rain heavily when they arrived.
One of Shen Du’s two cufflinks was an eavesdropper and the other was a locator. They were quite unique and one couldn’t tell that it had undergone high-tech transformation. On the other hand, Ye Nanqi’s hair that hadn’t been trimmed for a long time, covered up his ears, just enough to hide the earphones.
Before entering, the two looked at each other, but didn’t say anything about their business. Shen Du stroked his soft hair and chatted, “Your hair has grown.”
Ye Nanqi looked sideways, seeing that it was indeed long, he said, “I’ll cut it short when we go back. What do you think of the buzzcut?”
Shen Du’s expression suddenly became hard to describe. “Baby, be obedient.”
Xue Xiangyu, who didn’t know that he was threatened with being strangled with one hand, happened to pass by. When he saw the two of them, he coughed, and hugged the little lover in his arms and passed by without batting an eye, pretending to be unfamiliar.
Shen Du took his time bringing Ye Nanqi in, one in the front, and one following behind. When they entered the villa, they had to bypass the full body search.
Recently, the situation had been turbulent, and everyone was in danger, but inside the Villar seemed to be quite comfortable, with the music lingering. Well-dressed elites were discussing investment and finance back and forth, with nothing obscene at all.
Shen Du and Ye Nanqi had long expected this and they would not be surprised seeing the scenes. They searched the crowd for a moment and saw Bai Yu.
Xue Jingshan, as usual, sat beside Bai Yu with a calm expression with a good-natured smile, surrounded by a circle of people. Shen Du took Ye Nanqi over, and Xue Jingshan greeted him as usual. “President Shen.”
Bai Yu’s gaze also turned around, passing over Ye Nanqi and falling on Shen Du. It was unknown if it was intentional or not, he reached his hand out to Shen Du and nodded, “Young Master Shen, long time no see.”
Shen Du’s wife was by his side, and he wanted to let go as soon as he reached out his hand. Who would have thought that not only Bai Yu did not let go, but instead held his hand even tighter, with a faint smile on his always cold face. “We weren’t able to talk much last time, let’s have a drink together another day?”
Shen Du smiled and said, “Okay.”
When the two interacted, Ye Nanqi sat quietly on the side and looked at Xue Jingshan secretly.
Xue Jingshan was no different, only when Bai Yu held Shen Du’s hand and said the invitation, the corners of his eyes twitched, and for a moment he was no longer the gentle gentleman, but a gloomy and scary man.
From many years ago to the present, it seemed that Xue Jingshan’s desire for monopoly had not only not diminished, but had become more and more overwhelming.
Bai Yu let go of Shen Du’s hand and sat back down, his expression returning to a cold one. Xue Jingshan glanced at Shen Du, and uncontrollably pulled Bai Yu’s hand that was used to hold Shen Du’s hand with great strength. Bai Yu’s hand hurt badly, but he still didn’t say anything.
Xue Jingshan said with a very low, and his smile was penetrating. “Do you like him?”
Bai Yu continued to ignore him. With one hand that could not be used, he lifted the wine glass with the other hand and took a sip.
His indifferent attitude made Xue Jingshan remember that he was still a superior and after holding back, he let go of his hand. His face was still smiling, but his voice was cold. “How long do you want to ignore me like this? No matter what, Ye Mei won’t come back to life.”
Bai Yu’s hand loosened, and the wine glass fell to the ground.
The crisp sound attracted the attention of the people around him. The red wine splashed on his trousers, he stood up and bowed slightly, saying, “I accidentally dropped the glass, it’s okay. You guys continue, don’t spoil the mood. I’ll go change clothes for a while.”
After saying that, he went upstairs.
Xue Jingshan sat on the sofa for a while. Who knows what he was thinking, and after a while, he followed.
Seeing that both of them were gone, Shen Du followed suit and found an opportunity to get up and go to the bathroom with Ye Nanqi. The bathroom was large and the voice would echo loudly if they spoke, so no one spoke anything.
Ye Nanqi looked at him strangely after being squeezed into a compartment. Shen Du raised his finger and whispered softly on his lips, and then stretched out his hand with a note in his palm.
It was stuffed when Bai Yu shook hands with him just now.
Shen Du opened the note and glanced at it before handing it to Ye Nanqi.
Above was the address of a cafe, together with the time of notice of tomorrow eight o’clock in the morning.
The two looked at each other, worried that the partition wall had ears, so they still kept silent.
Ye Nanqi remembered it in his mind after reading it, and then threw the note into the toilet and flushed it away. He and Shen Du looked at each other and understood each other’s thoughts.
Why should Bai Yu be so careful?
The last time he called, he obviously had something to say, but he didn’t say it in the end.
In this Organization, the one who was most involved with him was Xue Jingshan.
Could it be that Xue Jingshan had his weakness and monitored his every move, so he was afraid of Xue Jingshan?
Ye Nanqi thought of Fang Xingyuan, who was being monitored by Shen Du, and guessed whether Bai Yu was also being monitored.
Of course, if you think in a bad direction, maybe this was just a tricky game. Maybe Bai Yu wasn’t a good thing either. He could join hands with the Organization and waited for him to drill in the trap.
Thinking about it like this, Bai Yu would be too scary.
When they returned after staying in the bathroom for a while, Bai Yu also changed his clothes, and his face was colder than usual. On the other hand, Xue Jingshan was in a good mood, and even his smile was a bit sincere.
Li Hengran’s voice came from the earphones, “Our people pretended to be waiters and got in. You two haven’t gained trust yet, since they seem to be talking in secret words when they chat, and they have determined the address, which cannot be deciphered for the time being.”
Ye Nanqi thought so too.
At present, this group of people did not dare to be too arrogant. The real party should only have core members, and the people outside the circle were just here to make numbers of communication.
And tonight’s party, in addition to the Organization, they also invited a lot of outsiders. No wonder he wasn’t being fully inspected when he came in and it was useless for the police to rush in now since they wouldn’t be able to catch anything.
Although it was similar to what he had guessed, Ye Nanqi still felt a little regret that this gathering had become a well-dressed exchange meeting of the upper class, and it didn’t take long for some people to leave one by one.
Shen Du also took Ye Nanqi away. When they got into the car, he took off Ye Nanqi’s mask, held his face to see his expression, and said with a smile, “Baby, do you really want something bad to happen?”
Ye Nanqi said, “In that case, the police would have reason to rush in, and this matter would be over soon.”
Shen Du was silent for a while, and patted his head. “Nan Nan, Bai Yu’s note is for you, are you going?”
No one wants to know the relationship between Bai Yu and Ye Mei more than Ye Nanqi.
Even if this was really a trick, Ye Nanqi was willing to roll in.
Ye Nanqi didn’t speak, but Shen Du had already seen his thoughts and nodded. “Shall Zhang Ming accompany you, or I accompany you?”
“Tomorrow is Saturday.” Ye Nanqi knew that Shen Du was busy with work. He was still worried about him, and always accompanied him. He didn’t get enough sleep every day, and he was more tired than anyone else, “You have a good night’s sleep at home, cook dinner and wait for me to come back.”
Shen Du had no objection. “Sure. What do you want to eat tomorrow?”
Ye Nanqi thought about it and said, “The braised pork rib and Chinese yam in hot sugar last time were good.”
After reporting a few more dish names, Shen Du wrote them down one by one, so that he didn’t have to mention it again later. When he got home, he was uneasy and insisted on grabbing Ye Nanqi and teaching him how to defend himself.
He taught some basics and rambled on and on about how he should be careful about Bai Yu. Ye Nanqi was drowsy in his nagging, and finally had to beg for mercy. He was rubbing his head against his palm with his soft hair rubbing against his hand, making him itching to the bottom of his heart.
He then said in a daze, “Okay, got it. Don’t drink, don’t eat, don’t follow Bai Yu alone, don’t believe his nonsense, I will send you a message in ten minutes to report safety, and I must come out within an hour… Is it okay now? Shen Xiaodu, I’m so sleepy.”
Shen Du had no choice but to let him go. However, feeling uncertain, he went to tell Zhang Ming again, that he must protect Ye Nanqi, his heart, his ancestor, by all means.
After tossing for a long time, it was not enough. The next morning, before Ye Nanqi left, Shen Du insisted on getting up together with him and wanted to say a few more words, but was pushed back to the bed by Ye Nanqi.
“You’ve slept less than four hours for ten consecutive days.” Ye Nanqi said, “I don’t want to inherit your inheritance so early. Get a good rest, I’ll be back soon.”
Zhang Ming drove to pick up Ye Nanqi. That cafe was in the city center, not far from home. In a place where every inch of land was so expensive, there was a sign that said it was closed hanging up early in the morning.
No one came to stop or block his path, and Ye Nanqi walked to the box written by Bai Yu and pushed open the door and entered.
Bai Yu was wearing a Tang suit, with a lustrous face, like a piece of warm jade that was just unearthed. He held his hands behind his back, stood by the window, and turned around when he heard the sound. He stared at Ye Nanqi with his light colored eyes carried by a trace of forbearance and pain.
Before Ye Nanqi could speak, he started speaking first. “Your eyes are very similar to your sister’s.”
After Mrs. Shen and Mrs. Ye reached a friendly agreement, they entered the movie theater together with movie tickets.
