Certificate of Conformity - Chapter 38
Face slapping the Entertainment Circle Bigshot (22)
Chen Heng and Meng Tianyou have known each other for nearly three years, and they had always been on good terms. However, Chen Heng also understood that they were purely just business partners and put their own interests above all else. He told Meng Tianyou about Meng Changfeng’s contact with the arms dealer. Meng Tianyou’s expression remained unchanged. He took a sip of his tea and said: “Just tell me what you want to say.”
“I want to cooperate with you.”
Meng Tianyou quickly guessed what he meant and incredulously looked at Chen Heng, “You want me to steal evidence of Meng Changfeng trafficking arms?”
“En.” Chen Heng smiled. Basing off Meng Tianyou’s reaction, he guessed that he must have already known about it.
Meng Tianyou took another sip of tea to suppress his shock. He reflexively looked around, then leaned close to Chen Heng’s ear and lowered his voice: “During the Meng Group’s power struggle, I couldn’t beat Meng Changfeng so I’ve been continuously hiding my tail between my legs for so many years. Now you’re asking me to deal with him. If he ever gets wind of this, I’m screwed.”
Chen Heng listened and personally poured him a cup of tea, “Don’t you want to become the head of the Meng Group? Or are you just willing to be oppressed by Meng Changfeng all the time?”
“Of course not.”
Meng Tianyou rotated the teacup in his hand and let out a self-depreciating laugh: “But what can I do? I know myself. Whether it’s in ability, boldness or drive, I can’t compare to Meng Changfeng. Even if I’m not willing to be oppressed, what can I do?”
Chen Heng raised the teacup to his mouth, but he was in no hurry to drink. Underneath his thick long lashes, the pair of deep divine eyes bore into the man opposite him, “You just need to find a way to get the list of arms dealers under Meng Changfeng. I will do the rest.”
“You?” Meng Tianyou raised an eyebrow, not quite trusting him, “Even if we get it, what’s the use? Meng Changfeng treads both the shadows and the light. Even if we have evidence that he had been trafficking arms, it wouldn’t even be able to reach those people on top.”
Chen Heng knew that Meng Tianyou was cautious. He would by no means do anything that he was absolutely not sure of, so he didn’t continue to persuade him. Presently, his club was operating nicely so, it wasn’t worthwhile for him to provoke Meng Changfeng. It wasn’t like he was complaining that his life was too long.
After leaving TIANYAO, Chen Heng called a subordinate. He knew that Meng Tianyou would definitely not take risks unless he had to. Now, all he had to do was incite discord between Meng Changfeng and Meng Tianyou so that Meng Tianyou would think that Meng Changfeng was deliberately targeting him.
After hanging up the phone, he was just about to go home, when his phone rang again. Chen Heng took a quick glance at the caller and picked it up, “Su Jue.”
“Chen Mu, I drank a little too much. Can you come pick me up?”
Hearing the deafening music blaring by his ears, Su Jue walked a few steps away, holding his slightly dizzy forehead. In order to celebrate the movie’s success in the box office, the crew had specially held a celebration feast. Quite a lot of people came over to propose a toast to him. He drank several cups and was now a little dizzy.
“Where are you right now?”
The man’s voice was still as pleasantly deep as it had been. After Su Jue told him the address with a grin, he hiccuped. When he reached out to cover his mouth, the hand holding his phone slipped and he heard a “pa”. The phone fell on the ground and the battery fell out of it.
He tried to blink away the fuzziness and blurriness of his sight. When he bent down to pick up the phone’s battery, a pair of white slender hands helped him pick it up first. Su Jue stood up unsteadily and looked up to see that the owner of the pair of hands had a handsome and domineering appearance with a very powerful aura. That man was precisely Meng Changfeng whom he hadn’t seen in a long time.
At the moment, the youth’s consciousness was still very much sober, and he recognized Meng Changfeng. He faintly frowned and extended a hand towards him.
“Thank you. Give my cellphone battery to me.” He originally still wanted to speak a few more words with Chen Mu.
Sweeping a glance at the youth’s exquisite palm lines, Meng Changfeng paused for a second. He placed the battery in Su Jue’s palm and firmly held on to the other’s hand. Su Jue almost reflexively tried to shake the other man’s hand away. His face was cold along with traces of a menacing chill in his voice, “President Meng, please let go.”
“Why aren’t you answering my calls these days?”
Meng Changfeng’s tone was equally as cold. His right hand firmly gripped on to Su Jue’s hand like an iron clamp.
Seeing as he couldn’t get rid of the other’s hand, Su Jue stopped struggling. A cold indifferent smile appeared on his beautiful austere face, “I blacklisted your number.”
“Because Chen Mu would be unhappy.” As he spoke the man’s name, Su Jue’s expression unconsciously softened. And as if he had received something valuable, the corners of his eyes and brows morphed into an expression filled with joy.
Meng Changfeng saw him show such an expression. His heart was so mad with jealousy that his stern handsome face appeared slightly distorted. “It seems that you really like Chen Mu.”
Answering in an incomparably proud tone, Su Jue cast a side-long glance at Meng Changfeng across him, “Don’t call me ever again.”
“Can you let go now?”
In any case, Meng Changfeng was the president of the Meng Group. He couldn’t harass him in public. He released Su Jue’s hand and took a deep breath. When he spoke again, he had turned back into the imperious and cold-hearted Meng Changfeng. “You will regret it.”
“No. I’ll never regret it.”
Su Jue replied with the utmost certainty. Even if he was confronting Meng Changfeng, his momentum wasn’t outmatched by the other.
When Chen Heng arrived at Su Jue’s location, he saw Su Jue and Meng Changfeng’s figures standing together. His face darkened. He quietly walked towards the youth’s side and faintly nodded at Meng Changfeng, “President Meng, what a coincidence.”
“Chen Mu, you’re here.” The youth was pleasantly surprised and unabashedly leaned half of his body on Chen Heng.
This act of trust and dependence did not go unnoticed by Meng Changfeng. It was as if a thorn had pricked his heart, making him feel like he was an unwanted presence. He endured the urge to separate the two apart. He raised his lips into a stiff curve and nodded back at Chen Heng, “Chief Chen.”
Acting as if he didn’t know anything, he deliberately said, “Is President Meng also here to attend Su Jue’s celebration feast?”
“No, it just so happens that I had to talk about business with someone here.”
Meng Changfeng said with an insincere smile. He looked at Su Jue hanging on to Chen Heng, “I’ll be leaving first.”
“Take care President Meng. We won’t see you off.”
Only when Meng Changfeng’s figure disappeared into the corridor did Chen Heng look back at the youth in his chest, “How much wine did you drink?”
“Not much.” The youth dug his head into Chen Heng’s chest, “Let’s go back.”
“Alright, then I’ll talk to the crew for you.”
After bringing Su Jue back home, Chen Heng coaxed him to take a bath. The youth wrapped his arms around Chen Heng’s neck and refused to let go. Blinking his glistening eyes, he said, “Help me bathe.”
Seeing the look of expectation hidden in his eyes, Chen Heng was somewhat dumbfounded, “A big person such as yourself still wants other people to help you bathe?”
Su Jue had drunk a little bit of wine on his own. With his blurry vision and spinning head, he didn’t have any strength. Feeling that he was justified, he righteously said, “I’m in a special situation today.”
“Chen Mu, can you help me bathe? I’m worried that the bathroom is too slippery, and I might accidentally fall down.”
Chen Heng thought that even if Su Jue really did fall and break his leg accidentally, he would still be the one to take who would take care of him so he reluctantly acquiesced, “Okay.”
He helped the youth into the bathroom and assisted him in drawing hot water. Chen Heng waited for Su Jue to climb in the tub by himself but unexpectedly, Su Jue stood straight in front of him, his clothes still neat but his face tinged red.
Chen Heng was slightly bewildered, “What’s wrong?”
“Help me undress ah.”
Well, he even asked him to help take off his clothes. Chen Heng helped him take off his shirt and trousers. After he finally took off his white underwear, he calmly held Su Jue and brought him into the bathtub. Warm yellow light shrouded them, illuminating the youth that his shining white skin was sparkling like a pure crystal, particularly his back that was facing Chen Heng which had not a single blemish.
A sudden bout of agitation appeared in Chen Heng’s heart. In the past, when he had been dissecting a recently deceased corpse, he had once separated an entire piece of human skin. The skin that the corpse had was one that had top notch-quality, yet it was still much too inferior when compared to Su Jue’s white skin that could glow.
Sensing the man’s hand touching his shoulder, Su Jue’s eyes lowered bashfully as he softly said: “Help me rub the bath gel on.”
His voice had become hoarse. Chen Heng coughed lightly and calmly smeared bath gel on his hands. He slowly applied it on the youth’s back. The sensation beneath his hands felt as silky as satin. The man became addicted to the touch and carefully stroked every inch of the youth’s skin.
This person’s skin was really too perfect.
Amazement shone in his eyes as Chen Heng was so focused on the sensations on his hand that he completely forgot about helping Su Jue bathe.
That was until his right hand was seized by the youth and Su Jue’s rough, low, hoarse voice sounded in front of him, “You’re lighting a fire.”
Chen Heng tried to shift his eyes away from Su Jue’s body and happened to meet the deep bottomless black eyes. Su Jue didn’t know when he had turned his head around but, now, he was staring deeply into Chen Heng. His usual clear eyes were like a cat’s and exuded a mysterious luster.
Su Jue sighed at the man’s puzzled look and simply turned his body around to face the man.
Under the clear, clean water, no secrets could be hidden. Chen Heng’s gaze followed along the youth’s chest, slipping under the water where he was able to vaguely see the thing that had completely stood up. The steam stained the youth’s cheeks scarlet. He looked at Chen Heng with an innocent expression and slightly parted his perfect lips, “I’m hard.”
“You’re the one who caused it.”
Chen Heng slowly blinked his eyes. He absolutely hadn’t realized what he had done. He merely thought that Su Jue’s skin was very beautiful and quite suitable to be displayed in a museum. He had even already thought of more than ten ways to preserve the integrity of the skin.
The youth refused to let him off easily. He smiled softly at the man who had a lifeless look in his eyes. When the other didn’t respond, he pulled hard, and dragged his whole body into the super luxurious bathtub that could hold up to five people.
Only a splash was heard, and droplets water splattered all around them. Chen Heng’s clothes were soaked in water.
“Since you’re wet, let’s both wash together.”
Su Jue’s eyes flashed a hint of a triumphant smile. He immediately pounced towards Chen Heng and his limbs nimbly peeled off the man’s clothes. Perhaps it was because he was too eager and instead of removing the man’s clothes, he made them tighter.
Chen Heng blinked his eyes and blocked Su Jue’s hand, “I’ll do it myself.”
The clothes were wet so, it was fine to take them off.
Then he obediently waited by the side and watched the man’s honey-colored chest gradually be exposed to the air. Through the course of that event, that place down there seemed to be even hotter. He clamped his legs and gulped. He then approached Chen Heng, “I’ll help you take off your pants.”
Chen Heng was worried that Su Jue was clumsy and blocked the youth’s outstretched hand again. Skillfully undoing the belt and raising his hips slightly, he took off the black trousers.
Long, slender, strong legs were exposed. Su Jue’s eyes incomparably darkened as he stared at the black underwear that was left. Due to the fact that it was wet, he was able to faintly see the outline of the package wrapped in cloth.
“Take off your underwear too,” Su Jue cleared his throat, “It’s uncomfortable to wear it when it’s wet.”
Chen Heng had intended to take them off but hearing those words, his moving hand stopped and he raised his eyes to meet Su Jue’s. The youth seemed calm; it was just that his eyes were a little too deep and focused.
Shaking off that strange feeling, Chen Heng took off the last of piece of cloth obscuring his body.
Then, this could be considered the first time that he and Su Jue saw each other naked.
Hearing the man’s reminder, it was as if Su Jue was roused from a dream and he lifted up the water spray to wash the foam off his body. Then, with his member not having the slightest tendency to go down, he swallowed a gulp and spoke out, “You just helped me bathe. I’ll help you too.”
“No need.” He wasn’t drunk.
The youth enthusiastically leaned in and went behind Chen Heng. He applied the bath gel to Chen Heng’s back despite his opposition. Previously, when he had been abducted in the club, he was forced to learn massage techniques for several days. Now, he had a skill to help massage Chen Heng’s shoulders.
The shoulder massage was very comfortable, so Chen Heng didn’t stop it and allowed the youth to wash his body. Sometimes Su Jue, Chen Heng didn’t know if it was deliberate or unintentional, would accidentally touch his lower body. Chen Heng wasn’t sensitive in that place, so he ignored it.
Gradually, the body behind him grew increasingly hotter and the pants he heard from the side of his ears grew even heavier. Chen Heng frowned. Was he in heat again? Having that thought, he wanted to distance himself from Su Jue, but was suddenly grabbed by the waist.
The next moment, Chen Heng noticed a hot and hard object pressed against him.
T/N: Just when Su Jue thought Chen Heng finally was progressing….he just wanted to skin him alive. ngl I want to know the ways he wanted to preserve the skin. Also, Su Jue drop your skin care routine please!!!!
