The actor who is acting with Gu Yunxi is a veteran actor, who is famous for his antagonist roles, and his acting skills are sturdy. Gu Yunxi enjoys the carefree feeling of sweeping through scenes like a whirlwind with him.
Unfortunately, they didn’t have many scenes together.
After playing with the child for a while, Gu Yunxi returned him to Wei Shimo despite Wei Ningqian’s reluctant expression.
Even though today’s filming was not a passionate scene, Gu Xin still cleared the set as he did a few days ago.
But no matter how many times he tried to shoo Wei Shimo away, the man still acted like he was unable to hear or understand. He threw the horn in his hand on the floor in rage.
“Irrelevant personnel please leave!”
Wei Shimo gave him a cold look and retorted, “Am I not an investor?”
Gu Xin’s anger choked, as he shamefully picked up the broken horn. For the sake of high-quality art, he is willing to bend down to serve the powerful!
In the process of filming, Wei Shimo’s eyes were like a wolf’s eyes as he kept glaring fiercely at the veteran actor who was playing with Gu Yunxi, causing his stress to double.
Especially during the scene where he would use a long stick to open Yun Shang’s clothes; due to his fear of Wei Shimo’s fierce eyes, he made several mistakes in a row.
After it had been three takes and they still weren’t finished with the scene, Wei Shimo one-sidedly thought that the veteran actor did it intentionally and immediately put him on his hate list..
In the end, Gu Yunxi couldn’t stand at the side anymore and gave him a warning. Only then did he reluctantly let go of the veteran actor and turn his attention to his sweetheart.
After finishing a scene under Wei Shimo’s heated gaze, Gu Yunxi took the robe in his hand and put it on.
Wei Ningqian quickly acted cute and coquettish and opened his arms wanting hugs.
Gu Yunxi hugged Wei Ningqian in his arms, glanced at Wei Shimo, and silently scolded him. What a pervert, actually bringing a child here to watch this kind of scene..
Wei Shimo was glared at by his clear cat eyes, and he immediately felt smug. When he thought of the scene he had just seen, he couldn’t help but ask, “How much more of that kind of scenes are there?”
He didn’t dare to let the youth resign again. One experience of being hated was enough.
Gu Yunxi thought for a moment, blinked his eyes and replied, “Half of it.”
Then doesn’t that means that there’s still another half! Wei Shimo was anxious, that he forgot the self-warning that he just said and blurted out, “Don’t film anymore, I’ll support you to the top!”
As soon as he finished saying those words, he knew it was over.
He carefully looked toward Gu Yunxi. The other man’s expression was extremely bad, and his eyes were filled with flames of anger.
“Chairman Wei, you don’t need to care about what kind of dramas I act in. My life has already been ruined by your boyfriend before, and I don’t want to have another repeat.”
Gu Yunxi glared angrily. Because of his fury, his beautiful white face was flushed, and his words were filled with indescribable hatred.
Being looked at by his eyes filled with hatred, Wei Shimo’s heart ached and his body shook slightly.
He covered Gu Yunxi’s eyes with his hands, pain welling up in the depths of his eyes. These pairs of eyes shouldn’t be like this, I remember the way he would look at me should be…should…how it should be….Wei Shimo was at a loss.
“I don’t have a boyfriend; you’re the only one I love.” Wei Shimo immediately retorted after coming back to his senses. He didn’t want the youth to think that his feelings for him were just a game out of boredom.
Gu Yunxi removed his hand and gave a disdainful snort. He mocked, “Who in the circle doesn’t know that Shu Ning is your [formal] boyfriend? I heard that you are living together. Congratulations.”
Wei Shimo ignored his sarcasm and again denied, “I don’t have a boyfriend; you’re the only one I love.”
“What about Shu Ning?” Gu Yunxi bent down to put Wei Ningqian on the ground. He straightened his back and grabbed Wei Shimo’s tie. Looking straight into his eyes, he asked “Do you dare to say that he’s not your first love, and that back then when you made me your kept man, it wasn’t because I resemble him?”
“I don’t know where you heard all this nonsense. Shu Ning is my friend. I did help him before, but I never loved him.” Wei Shimo paused then continued, “I kept you because I thought you were the one I was looking for.”
He touched Gu Yunxi’s eyes, “Do you still remember the first time we met?”
Gu Yunxi carefully searched through the original host’s memory and replied, “The night when the quid pro quo contract was signed.”
Wei Shimo shook his head. “In the hospital. At that time, you were injured while filming. You were sleeping quietly in the hospital bed, and I watched you for a long time. You woke up once and looked at me.”
It was precisely that one glance that caused Wei Shimo’s heart—which had been silent for thirty-three years—to begin to beat rapidly. He felt that he finally found the true meaning of living. “I want to have you, to love you well. At the same time, I was afraid of scaring you, so I thought of being your sugar daddy.”
Gu Yunxi furrowed his brows. There was no such event in the original host’s memory. No matter how he tries to recall, his time during hospitalization was a blurry shadow.
He is very good at figuring out people’s hearts, and he can naturally differentiate between the truth and falsehoods in Wei Shimo’s words. Then Wei Shimo loves the original body? Thinking of this, Gu Yunxi felt somewhat uncomfortable.
Suddenly, his expression changed, no, no that’s not right, if Wei Shimo loves Zhou Xiran, then how would he have let Shu Ning succeed? Gu Yunxi sneered several times and applauded, “You sure spoke words pleasing to the ears, Chairman Wei. I almost believed it.”
“Xiran,” Wei Shimo hugged Gu Yunxi tightly, and then said, “I know what I’m going to say is going to sound like I’m being defensive, but please listen to me.”
“After becoming your sugar daddy, I rushed to go see you. Yet, I discovered that my feelings for you disappeared in that instant. This made me feel scared and uneasy.”
“Although I have had two marriages, it was all consensual. I always thought I was a loyal person; I never knew that I would be so casual about love. I didn’t want to believe it and tried my best to fall in love with you. Gu Xin told me that love is made. So I slept with you. Yet no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t find that intense and passionate feelings that I had for you from that one gaze you gave me. I had to admit that I didn’t love you. I didn’t love you at all.”
“But,” Wei Shimo’s words took a turn. His expression was painful, and his tone was dispirited. He pulled hard at his hair, “Seeing you again, that feeling came back. My eyes can’t leave you, my mind is full of your silhouette, I fervently want to press you under my body and kiss every skin on your body.”
He took Gu Yunxi’s hand and placed it under his crotch, “Just looking at you like this, that place [referring to the crotch area ish] can’t endure the thought of wanting to mark you up thoroughly.”
Gu Yunxi was dragged by the man to touch that hard and hot place; he withdrew his hand in a panic. He raised his head and looked at Wei Shimo’s eyes quietly to identify the truth of his words. Simultaneously, he ordered the system to scan the world to see if there are any loopholes.
He has experienced thousands of worlds and encountered all sorts of unthinkable things— most of which were caused by world loopholes. He could not find what Wei Shimo said in Zhou Xiran’s memory, but what Wei Shimo said was indeed the truth.
“Master, the scan of the world is complete. Nothing is abnormal about this world.” Jing Tian informed Gu Yunxi of the result.
Gu Yunxi’s eyes darkened. If there’s nothing abnormal about this world, then Wei Shimo is the abnormal one.
Up till now, he has only collected the energy of one world. He is still unable to feel the soul fluctuation of others.
“Xiran, I love you. Believe it or not, you are the only one I have ever loved.” Wei Shimo looked at Gu Yunxi, who had fallen silent, and kissed him gently on the forehead.
With a lapse in his concentration, Gu Yunxi withdrew from Wei Shimo’s embrace in a panic. He fixedly looked at the man’s dark and handsome face and bit the tip of his tongue.
Just now, he almost couldn’t control himself from kissing this man passionately, because the gentle way that he treated him was super similar to the previous world’s Qin Mo. Even his name had the same ‘Mo’ character.
But Qin Mo is just an ordinary soul within the thousands of worlds. He’s different from him——someone who is unable to reincarnate, and thus can only travel through each world one by one and take revenge.
That man will actually enter reincarnation after death. And then he will forget about him completely; he will forget everything about them.
Gu Yunxi fled. It hadn’t been easy for him to finally be able to let go of Qin Mo. However, Wei Shimo’s appearance rekindled his sealed-up feelings and made him realize that his so-called ‘letting go’ was just an illusion of self-deception.
There are not so many coincidences in this world, and it is impossible for him to meet the same soul twice in a row.
Gu Yunxi tried his best to convince himself, but deep in his heart, he longed for that extremely small possibility.
Wei Shimo watched the youth’s fleeing silhouette, feeling an unspeakable pain in his heart. He picked up Wei Ningqian and left in a melancholic mood. He told himself to give the youth some time. Tomorrow. He will come again tomorrow.
