Certificate of Conformity - Chapter 35
Face slapping the Entertainment Circle Bigshot (19)
Chen Heng stared at the photos Su Jue sent him for a full half minute. The background of the photo was in a dimly lit KTV. Su Jue was smiling proudly at the camera with his arm around a strange man’s shoulder. The right hand of the arm around the man’s shoulder also formed a peace sign like he was showing off.
Childish. Chen Heng scoffed and casually edited the message he was about to send.
Hearing the message notification, Su Jue was eager to open his phone. Su Jue saw the 2 big words of “Have fun” sent by Chen Heng and his face turned black.
The second male lead accidentally glanced at the message and curiously asked: “Who’s that?”
The second male lead was surprised. Su Jue immediately pushed him away and stood up to go outside.
“Su Jue, where are you going?” the director asked behind him.
“The room is too stuffy. I’m going outside to get some air.” With that, he went out of the box without looking back.
He stood out in the corridor, back leaning against the wall. Su Jue read the message on his phone for a long while and couldn’t resist sending a message back.
Ding. Chen Heng put down the newspaper in his hand, picked up his phone and checked it. Someone sent a message. It was concise and intriguing— I’m not coming back tonight. He gazed thoughtfully at the message. Chen Heng didn’t reply right away, rather, he quickly carried out a series of connections in his mind.
He refused Su Jue’s proposition → Su Jue was angry → Su Jue was going back to a room with a stranger?
That’s great. There really couldn’t be a more perfect ending.
Oh, by the way, what was the name of the man beside Su Jue? He really wanted to send someone to check the other guy’s identity. If Su Jue really liked him, then he wouldn’t need to worry about finding reasons on refusing to have sex with Su Jue.
Chen Heng was quite cheerful as he replied a short message to Su Jue—En, I see.
Just like that? The youth on the other end looked in disbelief at the phone screen. Wasn’t Chen Mu concerned about where he will go and why he won’t come back? He wished he could just call the man and ask him but he was afraid the answer would make him feel more heartbroken. So Su Jue simply smashed the cracked pot— 3P, you coming?
Chen Heng was surprised to see such a shocking reply. He was stunned for a few seconds and slowly blinked. He was aware that the circle was quite open to various forms of entertainment but he didn’t expect Su Jue who was well-behaved would either not play or play big if he ever played at all.
It seems that he underestimated him.
With that line of thought, Chen Heng sent his reply: No thanks. You guys have fun.
Su Jue read the message word by word a trace of miasma flashing in his eyes. The fingers that were forcibly holding onto his phone faintly paled.
He really didn’t care about him one bit? Then why would he go provoke him in the first place!
Maybe he was just too hurt and furious but he couldn’t wait to bid farewell to the crew and just leave to go press a certain someone on the bed and ruthlessly do this and that with them. A figure silently stopped in front of him. Su Jue paused and looked up following the figure’s shiny leather shoes up until he saw the figure’s face. He frowned, “It’s you.”
His dark eyes were deep and openly stared at the youth with an outstanding appearance. Meng Changfeng hardly concealed the look of appreciation in his eyes. He nodded and smiled towards Su Jue, “I didn’t expect to see you here.”
Su Jue had no intentions in getting further tangled with Meng Changfeng. His voice was cold as he spoke, “I still have something to do. I’ll leave first.”
As he brushed past Meng Changfeng, the man suddenly spoke: “I know the relationship between you and Chen Mu.” He had sent someone to secretly investigate Su Jue and knew that there was a deal between Su Jue and Chen Mu.
The youth stopped in his tracks and turned back. No trace of surprise could be found in his eyes.
“Are you going to expose it to the media?”
“No.” Meng Changfeng shook his head, “I want to tell you that if you come with me, I can not only give you what Chen Mu can give you but I can give you so much more.” He was very confident and didn’t hide his intentions towards Su Jue.
The youth listened and was silent for a few seconds. He then opened his eyes and glanced at him lazily, “I don’t like you.”
Meng Changfeng understood as soon as he heard it. He looked at the beautiful youth across him with surprise and disbelief. Never before has anyone rejected him.
“Won’t you consider it? The resources in the circle are limited. As long as I give out an order to block you won’t obtain any resources.”
“Are you threatening me?” Su Ju sneered, his voice slightly cold.
“No. I’m trying to tell you that I fell in love with you at first sight.” The youth’s refusal evoked Meng Changfeng’s competitive heart. No one had ever used such a disdainful tone to speak to him before. This kind of interesting experience aroused a strong desire in him to conquer Su Jue.
Su Jue naturally saw the familiar possessive desire in Meng Changfeng’s eyes. It wasn’t like he hadn’t seen that look before. There had been other bigshots who wanted to keep him in the past but they all had been directly rejected by him. He only wanted Chen Mu and Chen Mu alone. He didn’t want anyone else.
However, currently he just suffered a blow and was feeling somewhat disheartened. He couldn’t tell what feelings Chen Mu really had for him. If he didn’t like him, why would he keep him? But if he did like him, why was he unwilling to sleep with him to the point that he didn’t care whether he slept around with others?
Thinking of it, the youth’s cold eyes flickered slightly and his lips hooked up at Meng Changfeng.
“If you like me, then what price are you willing to pay for me?”
Thinking that the youth wouldn’t return, Chen Heng casually cooked a bowl of noodles for himself. As soon as the noodles were cooked Su Jue came back.
Chen Heng was stunned and took off his apron, “How come you’re back so early?” It’s only 6 in the evening.
The youth didn’t speak and directly took the bowl of tomato noodles into the living room.
Chen Heng: “…”
Fortunately, he cooked an extra bowl. He scooped out the remaining noodles in the pot and took the bowl with him in sitting beside Su Jue. He watched the youth who was immersed in eating noodles and hesitantly asked: “Didn’t you have dinner with the crew today?”
The youth still stayed silent.
Chen Heng knew that the boy was just being difficult with him so he didn’t provoke him more. He turned on the TV and watched the news while eating the noodles. By the time he ate all of the noodles, Chen Heng was only half full. Still, he had some questions to ask Su Jue so he stayed on the sofa and waited for him to finish eating.
Maybe it was a habit he had previously developed that Su Jue was particularly slow in eating the noodles. He chews slow and swallows slow. His table manners were elegant but his expression was too cold just falling short of having the words ‘I am not happy’ written on his face in big letters.
After waiting for about five minutes, the youth finally finished eating. He also picked up Chen Heng’s bowl on the coffee table and went into the kitchen. A few seconds later, the sound of running water was faintly heard from the kitchen which should be from washing the dishes.
While waiting for Su Jue to return, Cheng Heng changed to a military channel and watched with great interest. The so-called high-tech stuff here has already become antiques in his world but seeing the theory on how these weapons were manufactured were pretty good.
When the youth who was wiping the droplets off his hand finally came out, he saw the man watching the TV intently with what could be called as a fanatical look in his eyes.
Suddenly he was a bit sad. Even the TV was more attractive than him ah.
The youth took back his eyes and quietly sat beside the man. He sat in silence for nearly half a minute before speaking: “Chen Mu.”
“En.” His eyes were still fixed on the TV.
“I’ve been propositioned.”
“En.” After a few seconds, Chen Heng shifted his gaze towards Su Jue, “What did you say?”
Hmph. He finally faced him. Su Jue suppressed the hidden elation in his heart and put on a pokerface. His voice was cold: “I met Meng Changfeng earlier. He said that he fell in love with me at first sight and was willing to pay ten times the price to have me.”
Chen Heng’s heart sank, “Did you agree?”
“No.” Su Jue stared straight at Chen Heng, “I told him that I would think about it.”
Think about it? Did this kid like Meng Changfeng?
Chen Heng face was grim and his lips were pursed into a straight line. He stared at the youth for a long time, scrutinizing him before letting out an icy voice: “Are you tempted?”
Su Jue nodded without the slightest hesitation and looked at the man, unblinking, “If I went with him, what would you do?”
So, the plot still can’t be changed? Chen Heng bowed his head, silently staring at his fingers, “If I wanted you to stay, will you agree?”
Couldn’t the two years he spent with Su Jue match the half day interaction he had with Meng Changfeng? Chen Heng really couldn’t figure it out. Didn’t the youth send him a message earlier suggesting that he wanted to go to a room with a new guy? How could he go to Meng Changfeng in under that short time frame?
A grip suddenly wrapped around his fingers and he heard the youth say to him: “Why do you want me to stay?”
Chen Heng’s heart was slightly agitated but he replied gently: “I like you. I don’t want you to leave me.”
“You’re a liar.”
Su Jue said those three words with such force that Chen Heng’s heart sank. He thought that Su Jue had finally noticed something but he heard the youth soften his voice and said miserably: “I was deliberately tricking you and asked for a threesome but you weren’t jealous at all.”
“….” He rejoiced to soon.
With his mouth curved into a gentle smile, Chen Heng fixed a steady gaze on Su Jue and chuckled: “You misunderstood. I actually knew that you were just playing a joke.”
Hearing that, Su Jue’s face softened, “If you want me to stay, then there’s one thing I want.”
“How much do you want?”
His originally softened expression rapidly froze. The youth was quite speechless at his unromantic older lover, “If I wanted money, I wouldn’t even need to think about it and immediately go with Meng Changfeng.” He sighed in exasperation. Su Jue tenderly cupped Chen Heng’s face, “I want you.”
Chen Heng who heard the words was silent. The youth’s meaning was quite obvious.
After living with the man for two years, Su Jue already knew him very well. Seeing that he didn’t speak, he didn’t force him. He just waved his hand, seeming magnanimous, “If you’re unwilling then forget about it.” After that, he pulled out his phone and dialed Meng Changfeng’s number in front of Chen Heng.
“Hello, is this Meng Changfeng? I’ve thought about it. I-”
He didn’t wait for him to finish speaking before Chen Heng took a big stride forward and cut off the call.
Boring into the youth’s eyes, Chen Heng didn’t hesitate, “I agree.”
