The Correct Way of Face-Slapping in Quick Transmigration - Chapter 29
Hi, I’m back… Again, this chapter is sponsored by MlleAdler, thank you for the ko-fi… Here we are…
The two men parted unhappily. Wei Shimo returned home exhausted and pained, feeling empty in his heart. He picked up his cell phone and dialed a number.
“Liu Zhen, check Zhou Xiran for me.” After confirming that the other end had heard the instructions, he went to the window sill and lit a cigarette to smoke.
“Dad.” Two-year-old Wei Ningqian happily ran over and hugged Wei Shimo’s thigh, looking up at him, his smart eyes blinking, looking very cute.
Wei Shimo quickly snuffed out his cigarette, hid the lonely look on his face, and reached out to hold him. He kissed the child’s forehead, and gently asked, “What did you do today?”
Wei Ningqian pouted, he softly hmphed twice and did not answer.
Wei Shimo’s thick eyebrows twisted slightly. In the past, he could always hear his son’s chirpy, cheerful voice when he went home. Recently, Wei Ningqian seemed to be alienating him. Even if in front of him, he is quite well-behaved, he did not dare to speak much.
He does hope that the child can be obedient, but he is definitely not trying to kill the child’s lively nature.
“Sorry, Dad will try to work less and spend more time with you.” He rubbed the child’s hair, then gave him a kiss on the cheek and promised.
Wei Ningqian gave a low and inaudible en sound, he lay on Wei Shimo’s shoulder, “Then can we just have dad and baby at home and not have Uncle Shu?” He hated that uncle being so casual in their home, and for always saying those things in his ear.
“What?” Wei Shimo was taken aback for a moment, then sat him on his lap, and asked again, “What did the baby just say?”
Wei Ningqian thought that Wei Shimo was angry, and tears filled his eyes, “I, I don’t want Uncle Shu.” He choked and said, then looked up at Wei Shimo timidly.
“Can you tell Dad why?” Wei Shimo gently wiped away the tears on his face, and asked slowly.
Shu Ning was regarded as his friend. He found him for help when he was in despair. In addition to the incident more than ten years ago, he felt guilty for Shu Ning, so he let him live at home as he wished. However, none of this is as important as Wei Ningqian in his heart.
Wei Ningqian lowered his head again and whispered, “He always says you don’t love baby.”
Wei Shimo’s mouth clenched tightly. He didn’t expect Shu Ning to say this to a child. Wei Ningqian is in a single-parent family, and his mind is very sensitive. Such words can be very harmful and can easily leave psychological trauma.
He once apologized to Shu Ning and made up for it in other ways. To be honest, the two of them have long been no longer in debt to each other.
“Uncle Shu is joking with you, he will leave tomorrow.” Wei Shimo took the child into his arms and patted him comfortably on the back, “Dad loves you, and dad loves the baby very much.”
Shu Ning is flushed with success. The box office of the movie he starred in is gratifying, the new movie is already under negotiation, and he has also just received the offer to be an ambassador of JOG, a big-name clothing brand in China.
He has been back in China for only a few months, and he had already skyrocketed to the third-tier stars position, replacing Zhou Xiran as the company’s strong pursuit. Over time, reaching the top of the entertainment industry is no longer just a dream.
“I’m back.” He walked into Wei’s house with a pleasant smile.
Wei Shimo was feeding the child a spoonful of food, and did not react much after hearing his voice, but continued to coax Wei Ningqian into eating vegetables.
The smile on Shu Ning’s face stiffened, and the eyes looking at Wei Ningqian were a little gloomy, and a trace of resentment flashed through his narrow eyes. Every time Wei Ningqian was there, Wei Shimo completely ignored him and cared only for his son.
Seeing that the child pushed the spoon away unhappily, Wei Shimo knew that he was full. He wiped his son’s mouth and asked him to go back to his room to play. Then he turned to Shu Ning and said, “Ah Ning, I have prepared a house for you in the center of the city. It’s very close to your company. You can move out tomorrow.”
“Mo, I have already gotten used to living here. You’re cruel enough to let me move. What, is it because you have a girlfriend that it’s inconvenient for me to be here?” Shu Ning’s heart beat a few times, his face was distorted, but he quickly rearranged his expression, shrugged it off and asked in a teasing voice.
Wei Shimo nodded expressionless. “There is indeed.” But not a girlfriend, but a boyfriend, and it’s still a bitter unrequited love.
Shu Ning’s pupils shrank and he laughed awkwardly, “Oh, oh really?” He paused and said, “Who is it?” His eyes flashed viciously. He thought he had the chance to win Wei Shimo, but that empty spot has been taken by others. It’s all because he was preoccupied with his work this month.
Wei Shimo didn’t answer. He got up, passed him and went upstairs. Standing on the balcony, looking at the night scenery, remembering the undisguised disgust in the man’s eyes in the afternoon, Wei Shimo smoked two more cigarettes unhappily.
Gu Yunxi lay on the bed tossing and turning, and there were a few traces of unconcealed nostalgia in his eyes. He missed the warmth of Qin Mo embracing him from behind, and missed the gentle whisper of that person in his ear. Suddenly, Wei Shimo’s figure flashed in his mind, and Gu Yunxi cursed inwardly and forced the person out of his heart.
In October, when the *autumn tiger’s prestige had finally faded away. The morning sun was particularly bright. Gu Yunxi woke up early, washed his face, brushed his teeth, changed into a set of sportswear, and began his daily routine of exercising before eating breakfast. Because of the role’s needs, the director requires him to keep his body flexible and his face more round.
(t/n: is chinese for Indian summer , a period of unseasonably warm, dry weather that sometimes occurs in autumn in temperate regions of the northern hemisphere during September to November.)
“Brother, morning.” A vigorous voice came, and Cao Yu ran over to Gu Yunxi in sweat. He had just returned from a run. The director’s requirements for Cao Yu are much more demanding than others. Cao Yu’s muscles are not good enough to show the mighty and domineering role of the general, so Cao Yu has to get up at four o’clock every day to aggressively do some abs training .
Gu Yunxi chuckled and laughed. Cao Yu looked almost like a bear now. Director Gu was clearly looking for a reason to punish him.
The two of them had a mismatch because of Gu Yunxi. Cao Yu disliked the director’s sloppy image and that it was not worthy of his brother. Gu Xin felt that his Yun Shang was taken advantage of by a bear, and his heart was unbalanced.
“I heard that the actor who played the emperor is here today?” Gu Yunxi interrupted Cao Yu’s endless crusade against the director and wisely changed the subject.
“That’s right.” Cao Yu smacked his lips and touched his chin. “Speaking of which, there seems to be only one scene left between us.”
Gu Yunxi nodded. Three days have passed since Wei Shimo came to visit the squad that day. The crew was in a hurry and finally completed the passionate scene between Yun Shang and the general.
Cao Yu had been acting awkward around him for several days after the filming ended. So, it was unexpected that Cao Yu would take the initiative to greet him today.
“General’s beloved wife is about to be handed over to someone else. General is heartbroken.” Cao Yu held his heart and cried, with an exaggerated expression, which was very funny.
Gu Yunxi scornfully glanced at him, and started to lower his waist. In the whole play, the most close-up shots are his waist and back. Therefore, Gu Xin urged him to take good care of his body.
Wei Shimo healed the wound on his face and immediately took an irregular vacation for himself. After feeding his son breakfast in the morning, he rushed to Yun Shang’s crew, and was there just as the crew was eating. He stood awkwardly on one side.
Seeing that they are old friends, Gu Xin called him to join them.
Holding his son, Wei Shimo consciously walked towards Gu Yunxi and sat down beside him. He handed a crystal bun to Wei Ningqian. His eyes could not help but drift to Gu Yunxi. Seeing that the porridge in his bowl was gone, he immediately ran to fill it up and brought it to him with a flattering smile.
Gu Yunxi couldn’t help but glance at him, pushed the porridge aside relentlessly, wiped his mouth and left.
Wei Shimo looked at his figure and grasped the clothes on his chest. His heart hurts every time he sees the young man turning away. This sudden pain seems to be telling him that he will never be able to catch this person.
Wei Ningqian tugged at his father’s clothes, and Wei Shimo recovered from his lack of consciousness, and asked softly, “baby, what’s wrong?”
The child stretched out his hands and motioned to Wei Shimo to pick him up, and then pointed to Gu Yunxi and said, “Chase, chase. Want older brother, want older brother.”
The first scene that Gu Xin had arranged, was Gu Yunxi’s act. After eating breakfast, he went to the dressing room to change into his drama clothes and made preparations for the scene. Because he has no money to hire an assistant, Gu Yunxi needs to do everything himself.
This scene is the scene where it’s the first time that Yun Shang serves the old eunuch. There aren’t any intimate behaviors such as kissing, licking and so on, however, his clothes are relatively exposed to highlight the beautiful body of Yun Shang. So, except for certain parts of his body that’s covered, his body was only covered in a thin blue shirt.
As soon as Gu Yunxi put on the costume, he felt a heavy weight on his leg. He looked down suspiciously, and a child with bright eyes was hugging him tightly.
Digging up the child’s identity from the memory of the original body, he smiled and picked up the child, scratched his little nose and asked, “Why are you here?”
Wei Ningqian grabbed his long fingers and pouted for a kiss.
Wei Shimo stood at the door hesitantly and dared not to go in. He was afraid that he would cause the unhappiness of the young man, so he just waited outside for his son.
“Where is your father? Go find him.” Gu Yunxi kissed the child on the cheek amusedly and put him down. The dressing room is messy with a lot of things, which is not safe for children. But Wei Ningqian was unwilling to go, and followed him closely with his short legs.
Gu Yunxi helplessly held his forehead, secretly sighing that these two are really fathers and sons. Even the way they act shamelessly is the same. He accepted his fate and called out, “Chairman Wei, please come in.”
As soon as Wei Shimo heard this sound, he was so excited that he ran three steps in two, and smoothly locked the door.
