Commercial Marriage [Rebirth] - 16
Chapter 16 – Misunderstand
Qi Yueran should be as tall as the youth, with streamlined back, sphenoid bones and upright buttocks, which were particularly captivating. Qi Yueran could be regarded as a young master from a well-to-do family who had not done any manual work, so his skin was very white.
He Jian felt that he had drunk too much, his throat was very dry. Since his rebirth, he had been busy with all kinds of things. He had never thought about the superfluous things and neither had he experienced it.
In his previous life, he was not keen on this kind of thing because he had his older brother in his heart. He never had given a thought about other men and women. Later, he knew that it was impossible to be with his older brother, so he found a couple of youths who vaguely looked similar to Qi Yuexin.
Qi Yuexin looked a bit more neutral and delicate. It was only that right now, He Jian’s head was full of the figure in the glass bathroom yesterday.
Sensing that He Jian’s breathing was heavy and his undulating chest became intense and rapid, Qin Ya was so happy that he thought he had seized the opportunity – He Third-shao was interested in him.
He was happy and sneered as he thought that the little gongzi of Qi Family was nothing, who only had a good family background, no pretty face and unlikely acted coquettish. Even if they were engaged, he (QYR) could not incite Third-shao’s fantasy, which enabling him to hook Third-shao away.
He Jian was in a trance and simply thought that the person he was holding was Qi Yueran. His mind was blinded by alcohol that he thought his way of thinking was simply insane and yet he was excited for no reason. He felt a burst of impulse on his lower body and then the strong alcohol rushed to his head.
Qi Yueran talked with Xia Hang for a while and then came out of the private room. Although Boss Xia appeared easygoing, he was still nervous all the time and he was unable to bear it after a while.
Hua Film was the leading company in the film and television industry. Although Qi Yueran did not have any connection with the entertainment circle, he also knew these things. Xia Hang was not as old as He Jian. He was the eldest son of Xia Yichen of Xia Family, so it was natural that Xia Hang took over the industry of Xia Family. Xia Hang had inherited Xia Yichen’s work style since he was young and Hua Film had been doing better and better in his hands for several years.
Qi Yueran sighed a little, thinking that if he had that kind of courage, he might be able to deal with the company’s business smoothly, but he could not.
Qi Yueran felt envious and unreconciled. He had always been a stubborn character and did not want to be worse than others. He was feeling annoyed as he easily pushed open the door of the bathroom.
The bathroom space was very large that there was some sense of emptiness where a subtle sound would be very obvious. Qi Yueran heard ambiguous gasps and intuitively thought he had encountered some embarrassing scene. However, when he looked up, his whole person was stunned.
Just now, the boy in the private room and He Jian were hugging each other. Like a spineless person, the boy clung onto He Jian’s bosom. The two people were as intimate and closed as possible that it should be an appearance of kissing.
Qi Yue Ran’s body froze and there was a sudden sense of intoxication rushed to his head; feeling like a pot had exploded. A burst of anger rose from his chest and only reached to his throat. Alas, it could not flare out.
He stared at the two people for a few seconds before restoring his calm eyes. Qi Yueran’s fingers slightly curled into fists. He did not know whether it was his own illusion but the boy which faced him, half narrowed his eyes and also let out ambiguous moans when the boy discovered him.
Qi Yueran wore no expression on his face. As though he encountered people he did not know of, he closed the door on his way out.
He Jian’s back was against the door. At first, he did not notice until Qi Yueran turned around to leave, he saw the person in the mirror. Subconsciously, he pushed Qin Ya away and called out “Xiao Ran” before he opened the door and ran after him.
Qi Yueran heard him call out, but he ignored it. Out of the bathroom, he quickly went back to the private room.
He Jian cursed himself and wanted to catch up with him. Unfortunately, he saw the person enter the private room. The private room was full of outsiders, with Boss Xia also in it. It was not a place to explain the misunderstanding.
He Jian harshly wiped his face, seemingly a little frustrated and felt that his intoxicated self was completely sobered up. There was a feeling of being caught red-handed. It was just that he didn’t do anything at all.
He lingered outside the private room for a long time. Even the waiter came to ask him a few times if he needed any help. He Jian put his hand on the doorknob and put it down again. In the end, he could not decide whether to go in or not.
He Jian wanted to explain with Qi Yueran that he had done nothing with Qin Ya. However, recalling his dirty thoughts just now, he did not dare to speak with Qi Yueran and tell him his true thoughts. He Jian did not understand how he could have such a ridiculous idea about “himself”. It was really ridiculous.
He Jian felt that he had such a ridiculous idea because he had not found a companion for a long time. Even if he and Qi Yueran got married, there would not be any intimate behavior either. He thought things too simply and thought that it would be more convenient to protect Qi Yueran like that, but he ignored the problems brought about by the change of the relationship between them.
Although he planned it very well, thinking that they would not interfere with each other when they got married and he would not prevent Qi Yueran to find a person he liked, but Qi Yueran would not think so. Qi Yueran was a strict person. Besides, the youth had not experienced too many things and despite him looking calm, he was in fact a bit explosive inside. He would not marry He Jian and still go out to fool around. If he was caught, it would do harm to Qi Family.
Xia Hang was talking to Director Ma next to him and when he saw Qi Yueran return, he said in surprise: “Mister Qi returns quite fast ah.”
Qi Yueran tried to make his face look normal, but it still did not escape Xia Hang’s eyes. Xia Hang did not expect him to go out for only a minute and met with unpleasant things. It was not good to ask, so he could only smile.
After another ten minutes, He Jian returned to the private room. He put on a cover that everything was alright. Even after thinking about it for a long time, he still did not explain anything to Qi Yueran immediately. He could only comfort himself that it was fine to let Qi Yueran see that – even he could not live his life without finding someone to vent off. However, even if he made excuses like this, he still felt uneasy.
After a long while, Qi Yueran calmed down. Only then did he felt that he had no right to be angry or unhappy at all. On the contrary, these reactions were laughable. It was just a marriage of convenience…
Qi Yueran remembered that when He Jian put forward the marriage proposal, he also specifically said that he (HJ) did not mind if he (QYR) found someone he liked. It turned out that He Jian had already planned everything out. It was only him who was stupid and serious about the marriage.
Qin Ya came back after a while. He even felt that he had the good judgement of separation period. When Qi Yueran caught them, Qin Ya felt proud, but he was still a little worried. He was afraid that He Third-shao would not pay attention to him because they were caught in the act.
He came back to observe He Jian’s expression and found that He Third-shao was still smiling – not at all angry or regarded it as a matter of any importance. This time, Qin Ya put his worry at ease.
Xia Hang glanced at Qin Ya, who looked complacent. It was obvious when the boy always glanced at Qi Yueran, full of pride and ostentation. He could only grin apathetically.
The dinner only ended at 10 o’clock in the evening when Xia Hang’s mobile phone rang suddenly, making a room full of people dumbfounded. All of them were staring at each other and could not react for a moment.
Xia Hang’s mobile phone’s ringtone was not ordinary. It shouted out again and again “It’s ten o’clock, go home. Otherwise, the door is locked to keep you out, so sleep at the doorway with Dabai”.
Xia Hang was also stunned for half a second. He took out his mobile phone and looked at it. It was not a phone call, but a fixed-time alarm set by someone, who also specially recorded a “strange” ringtone to remind him. He did not seem embarrassed or angry. Instead, he laughed and pushed it off. With a natural look, he said: “Made you see something embarrassing. In fact, it’s late. Everyone is busy with work, but I expected that there will be many opportunities to get together in the future like today.”
The others dared not laugh at his strange alarm tone. They nodded and bowed.
He Jian said: “Then, our talk ended here today. When the film and television base in Quanlin is completed, Boss Xia must do me the honor to go visit it.”
“Certainly.” Xia Hang got on his feet as he spoke.
They all went to the elevator together while talking and the waiter led them to the garage. Along the way, Qin Ya seemed more excited, thinking that He Jian would ask him to follow. Unfortunately, after waiting till the last minute, his face turned white. He Third-shao did not look at him again.
He Jian not only did not look at him again, but also detested him very much. He personally opened the door and helped Qi Yueran to get in the car. Instead of getting in too, he talked a bit with Xia Hang before getting in the car.
Xia Hang only nodded. Qin Ya’s careful mind was still amateurish in front of him. Now that He Jian had made it clear in front of him, he could not do nothing. Qin Ya was a person under Hua Film’s banner. Today, he came along with Xia Hang and also got between He Third-shao and Qi Family’s gongzi. If it was anyone else, they would not have said that, but now that it caused trouble, it could be considered as a slap to Xia Hang’s face that made him lose face.
On the way back to He Household, neither of them spoke. When they entered the door, Madam He was still in the living room and had not gone to bed. As soon as they came in, she immediately asked people to bring sobering tea and said: “The smell of wine is really strong, you must have drunk a lot. By your look, are you tired?”
Qi Yueran managed to smile with difficulty and said: “Don’t be busy. I’ll just take a bath and go to sleep.”
Madam He felt Qi Yueran’s complexion was not good. Although it seemed that there was nothing wrong, she just felt that the atmosphere was not right. When he went upstairs, she said to He Jian: “Did you two quarrel? Be at odd with each other?”
“……no.” He Jian said.
Madam He glared at him as she said: “As if I don’t know you. Did you mess with someone when you went out to drink? You see, Xiao Qi’s complexion looks so bad. You’ve just going steady for a while and you’re in trouble again. You’re not engaged yet. If you get married, you’ll get married today and get divorced tomorrow.”
