The moment the plane slowly landed on the runway, Wen Jianing felt as if his heart had trembled along with it.
When he was pushed out of the airport in a wheelchair, he was discovered by accident by a few reporters. Wen Jianing, who was wearing sunglasses and a mask, did not say anything under the reporter’s questioning. Wen Tinghuan helped him out, saying that he broke his leg at the shooting scene and was feeling uncomfortable. Then she pushed Wen Jianing away in a hurry.
Wen Jianing thought that fortunately, he didn’t come back with Lu Jinlang by plane.
The company sent a car to pick them up. After getting in the car, Wen Tinghuan asked Wen Jianing, “Are you going to back there?”
Wen Jianing said strangely, “Where else would I go? I asked you to help me look at the house, but I haven’t heard any news after so long. Could it be that I still have to go to sleep on the road?”
Wen Tinghuan said, “Just go back. It’s not like I can intervene with your business.”
Lu Jinlang’s flight was later than his, and Lu Jinlang hadn’t arrived when Wen Jianing returned home.
Wen Tinghuan left after making sure that he was all right alone.
After that Wen Jianing sat in a wheelchair and quietly stayed in the living room for more than an hour without doing anything until Lu Jinlang opened the door and came back.
Lu Yunan came in with Lu Jinlang.
Lu Jinlang looked at Wen Jianing strangely, “What are you doing? Why are you daydreaming here?”
Wen Jianing said, “I’m trying to figure out how the hell I’m going to get through this month of rest and recuperation.”
Lu Jinlang came over and reached out to take him to the sofa. Wen Jianing stood up quickly, jumped over to sit down next to the sofa, and said, “I can go there on my own.”
”Let’s read a book and watch a movie,” Lu Jinlang sat down beside him and said, “I’ll find some movies. Let’s watch it together.”
Wen Jianing reached out and grabbed his hand, smiled and said, “Okay.”
Lu Jinlang really went to find a lot of movies, both domestic and foreign movies. When both of them have nothing to do, they would sit on the couch and watch movies and they will carefully discuss the filming techniques and skills.
That night, halfway through a somewhat drowsy movie, Wen Jianing reached out and touched Lu Jinlang’s thigh.
Lu Jinlang smiled and put his hand on the back of his hand, and said, “What do you want to do?”
Wen Jianing said, “How long since the last time we did it?”
Lu Jinlang shook his hand and said, “How can you think about this even when your legs are still limping?”
Wen Jianing said, “My lower body is not controlled by my legs.”
Lu Jinlang stood up with him in his arms and said, “Then let’s go to bed.”
Wen Jianing really hadn’t done anything with Lu Jinlang for a long time. The last time Lu Jinlang came to see him was because he broke his leg and both of them didn’t do anything. This time they came back for a few days, and just slept under the quilt every day. To be honest, he missed the happy feeling of making out with Lu Jinlang.
However, Lu Jinlang was concerned about his knee injury. After that, he hugged Wen Jianing in his arms and fell asleep.
The next day early in the morning, Wen Jianing was still burying himself in Lu Jinlang’s chest and was awakened by Wen Tinghuan’s phone call.
Wen Jianing answered the phone and heard Wen Tinghuan say, “I have looked for several apartments to show you in the past few days. Are you free today? Let’s go and have a look together.”
Wen Jianing couldn’t help taking a look at Lu Jinlang. Lu Jinlang was also awakened by the phone call and was looking at him at this time. The two were too close. Wen Jianing was not sure if Lu Jinlang heard what Wen Tinghuan said on the phone, but he still said to Wen Tinghuan, “Okay, you can come and pick me up.”
”Going out?” When he hung up, Lu Jinlang asked him.
Wen Jianing nodded, “I have something to do with Ting jie.”
Lu Jinlang didn’t ask anything. He opened his quilt and got up. He said, “I’ll put water on you and take a bath.”
Wen Jianing had no problem walking, but Lu Jinlang always reminded him of the doctor’s instructions and asked him to walk less.
He limped to the bathroom and took a shower. When he came out, Lu Jinlang was frying eggs in the kitchen.
Wen Jianing suddenly said, “I want to eat noodles.”
Lu Jinlang originally planned to fry eggs and toast. When he heard Wen Jianing say so, he changed to noodles and spread the fried eggs on top for him.
Wen Jianing put a chopstick into his mouth, and exclaimed, “It’s delicious.”
In the morning, Wen Tinghuan drove to pick him up to see the place.
Wen Tinghuan had been optimistic about these properties before, and along the way introduced him to the general situation of the properties and surrounding facilities, and then contacted the sales lady and the agent, one by one, there are a total of four houses to choose from.
The limping Wen Jianing followed Wen Tinghuan to finish touring the four places in one go, but he was not very satisfied.
Two people were eating out at noon, Wen Tinghuan said, “The place you live in with King Lu is so good. Of course you don’t like these houses. But buy one first to prepare. Now there are several advertisements in the company that are talking about wanting to shoot with you. At that time, when you already have a large income, I suggest you buy a villa in the suburbs.”
Speaking of villas, Wen Jianing suddenly remembered something, “Ting jie, do you know Wen Jianing’s villa?”
”Huh?” Wen Tinghuan put the vegetables in her mouth, chewed them up and swallowed, and then said, “The one that Wen Jianing had an accident in? Of course I know that.”
Wen Jianing asked, “What about now? Has it been sold?”
Wen Tinghuan was astonished when she heard the words, “I really don’t know about this. If you want to know, I will ask it for you. Why? Do you still want to buy that villa?”
Wen Jianing didn’t admit it directly, but said, “I’m just asking.”
Wen Tinghuan said, “I don’t know if it’s for sale, his family probably isn’t short of that money. But even if the house is sold, no one would dare to buy it, right? After all, a person has died, who dares to buy and live there?”
Wen Jianing felt a little complicated, and said to Wen Tinghuan, “Just ask it for me.”
After touring all four houses, he couldn’t make up his mind.
When he got home that day, Wen Jianing opened the door and saw Lu Jinlang sleeping on the sofa with a book on his chest.
Wen Jianing walked over and gently picked up the book and found that it was a professional book related to directing.
Lu Jinlang was awakened by his actions, opened his eyes to look at him, and asked, “You’re back?”
Wen Jianing looked at the book and asked him, “Why? Do you want to try to be a director?”
Lu Jinlang sat up and said with a smile, “Yes, I have this idea.”
”What kind of movie do you plan to make?” Wen Jianing asked.
Lu Jinlang said, “I’m still thinking about it.”
That night, when Lu Jinlang was surfing the internet with his tablet in the living room, he saw the entertainment gossip next to him that Ke Xinhang was limping around looking at apartments and attached a photo of him and Wen Tinghuan walking out of a building together.
Before Wen Jianing came out of the shower, Lu Jinlang closed the website, and he didn’t ask anything afterwards.
Two days later, Wen Jianing received a call from Wen Tinghuan, saying that she had asked someone. Wen Jianing’s old villa has not yet been sold, but now Wen Cuilan seemed to be planning to sell it. After all, it had been so long since there was someone there, and she had no other relatives in this city now.
After selling the house, she would probably go back to Canada with her husband and would never come back.
Wen Jianing held the phone for a while and asked Wen Tinghuan, “How much is she bidding?”
Wen Tinghuan was surprised, “Are you kidding me? Are you really going to buy it?”
Wen Jianing went on to say, “Can you ask Ms. Wen to come out to talk about it?”
Wen Tinghuan still couldn’t believe it, “Although I know you are a big fan of Wen Jianing, but after all, Wen Jianing died in that house.”
Wen Jianing said, “It’s not like he died because of a murder.”
”But still, it was an abnormal death,” Wen Tinghuan said. “It’s quite horrifying when you think about it.”
Wen Jianing said to her, “Anyway, go ahead and ask around for me. If possible, I would like to meet with Ms. Wen and have a careful discussion.”
Wen Tinghuan had no choice but to accept his request.
In fact, in the beginning, Wen Jianing didn’t have this idea, but now, he suddenly wanted to buy the house again, which had a lot of memories about Wen Jianing.
With this in mind, Wen Jianing began to search the internet for information about his old house to see if he could find any news and then found comprehensive news about the celebrity real estate, which mentioned his house. It was said that since Wen Jianing’s sudden death, the house had been vacant, and now it looked gloomy and terrible from the outside.
The photo attached also deliberately circled a window on the second floor, indicating that it was the bedroom where Wen Jianing died suddenly.
”Do you want to buy it?” Suddenly, Lu Jinlang’s voice can be heard behind him.
Wen Jianing was startled and turned around to see Lu Jinlang standing behind looking at his computer screen.
The browser was full of web links related to the search for Wen Jianing’s old house, and Lu Jinlang understood it very clearly as soon as he opened it.
Wen Jianing did not deny it. He said, “I want to buy it.”
Lu Jinlang’s expression was difficult to understand, “Why?”
Wen Jianing said, “I told you, he’s my idol.”
Lu Jinlang sat down in the chair beside him, “You are able to go to this extent for an idol?”
Wen Jianing shrugged, “There are also people who jumped off the building for idols. I’m just buying a house. What’s the problem?”
”And then?” Lu Jinlang asked, “Do you plan to move there after you buy it?”
Wen Jianing was taken aback when he heard his question. He didn’t expect Lu Jinlang to ask so directly.
Lu Jinlang said, “Did you hear me when I was talking to my second brother in the ward that day?”
Wen Jianing raised his head to look at him.
Lu Jinlang’s attitude is still very gentle, he said, “So is that why you are in a hurry to move?”
Wen Jianing did not answer him.
Lu Jinlang reached out and took one of his hands, put it to his mouth and kissed it, “Fool, it’s unnecessary. Don’t you remember that I promised you something and haven’t given it to you? You are willing to sleep with me for nothing, eh?”
Wen Jianing gently held Lu Jinlang’s hand, “What can I do if I slept with you? Who told you not to talk to me about the conditions and sign the contract before we slept together.”
Lu Jinlang laughed, “I feel very sad when you say that. I always thought you enjoyed having sex with me.”
Wen Jianing said, “I do enjoy it, but I also have the professional ethics of being a little pet.”
Lu Jinlang reached out and touched his hair.
Wen Jianing raised his head and rubbed his cheek against the palm of his hand. Lu Jinlang’s palm was warm and dry, with a temperature that made him greedy.
”Is there enough money?” Lu Jinlang asked him.
Wen Jianing gave a soft “Hm?”, and then realized that he was talking about the house, so he said, “I haven’t contacted the seller yet.”
Lu Jinlang said to him, “If you need anything, mention it to me.”
Wen Jianing nodded.
Lu Jinlang turned his head to look at the screen, “But I don’t approve of you buying this house.”
Wen Jianing said, “Because Wen Jianing once died there?”
Lu Jinlang said, “He stopped abruptly at the peak of his career, and you are still on the rise in your career. Have you ever wondered what kind of public opinion topics will be formed once you buy it?”
After a brief silence, Wen Jianing said, “I don’t care about those.”
”Think it through,” Lu Jinlang touched his head.
Just when Wen Jianing’s knee injury was almost completely recovered and he no longer limped when walking, Wen Tinghuan told him that she had contacted Wen Cuilan. About the house, Wen Cuilan didn’t make an offer and said she wanted to interview the person who wanted to buy a house.
This house also has extraordinary significance to Wen Cuilan.
Before the time agreed with Wen Cuilan, Lei Xing negotiated with an internationally renowned mobile phone brand, with Wen Jianing as the image endorsement and agreed to shoot a total of three commercials within two years.
Lei Xing was also very considerate of Wen Jianing. Ever since the broadcast of ‘The Strange Fate of Hairpin and Phoenix’, Wen Jianing became popular. Various brand companies had been in contact with Lei Xing, wanting to talk about advertising endorsements. However, Lei Xing chose the advertisement very carefully, and did not easily help him to receive advertisements, and finally settled on this recently very popular mobile phone brand.
After signing the contract, Wen Jianing first shot the first series of the commercials, which took two days.
After that, Wen Tinghuan had planned to accompany him to meet Wen Cuilan, but she did not expect Wen Jianing to refuse her company and planned to go there alone.
Wen Tinghuan didn’t quite understand what Wen Jianing was obsessed with.
The place that was decided to meet Wen Cuilan was a cafe not far from the villa area. When he thought of seeing Wen Cuilan, Wen Jianing couldn’t help feeling a little nervous and excited. He got up early that morning and went out. Lu Jinlang didn’t ask him what he was going to do.
Wen Cuilan came a little later, and her husband came with her, but after seeing Wen Jianing who was sitting there alone, she asked her husband to go back first.
”Sorry,” Wen Cuilan said politely.
Wen Jianing stood up, “Hello, Ms. Wen.”
Wen Cuilan looked at him, “Have we met somewhere?”
Wen Jianing said, “It was the last time you received the Academy Award for your son, we met in the corridor outside the bathroom.”
Wen Cuilan smiled immediately and said, “I remember, you are my son’s fan.”
The two then exchange some words.
Wen Jianing actually felt a little excited. He really wanted to ask Wen Cuilan, how are you doing? Are you still healthy? Is your husband treating you well? But he couldn’t ask those questions, because it was too abrupt. He could only observe Wen Cuilan carefully and found that she seemed to maintain her past figure, her face was also rosy, her eyes didn’t show grief, only slightly regretful when mentioning the words Wen Jianing.
Wen Cuilan was actually doing very well, and Wen Jianing knew it.
After returning to the villa, Wen Cuilan was a little surprised, “Actually, I didn’t expect that a young man like you would be willing to buy Jianing’s house.”
Wen Jianing said, “I told you I like Mr. Wen very much.”
Wen Cuilan showed a slight sadness on her face, “He is a very good child. Although we spent less time together during that last part of his life, we still had a strong bond.”
”I know,” Wen Jianing said.
Wen Cuilan thought he was just being polite to her and did not care, then said, “I did not intend to sell this house at first, but my husband persuaded me to sell it because I might have very little time to come back in the future. It doesn’t matter even if it is vacant, but it is not possible to always hire someone to take care of the house. It is better to transfer to someone in need.”
Wen Jianing put his hands on the table, his thumbs touching each other.
Wen Cuilan said, “So I don’t intend to make much money from this house. I just hope to sell it to the right person.”
Wen Jianing said, “I’m going to cherish it.”
Wen Cuilan did not say the price, she said, “Let’s go and see the house first.”
