After all, several men stood up, and the noises around this area were not small, so many people turned their heads and looked over here.
Lu Jinlang was the one who first said, “It’s okay.”
Wen Jianing also gently pushed Wen Lin away, took his hand, and said, “We’re all right.” Then, he walked toward the stage. This time Lu Jinlang didn’t stop him.
When he passed by, Guan Xiaotian and Le Shu had just gotten down from above. He didn’t say anything improper without thinking about it. He just walked up to Guan Xiaotian and the others, stretched out his hand and said, “Congratulations.”
Guan Xiaotian paused for a while before shaking his hand and saying, “Thank you.”
Wen Jianing shook hands with Le Shu also and said congratulations. Then he passed them onto the stage and stood in front of the microphone and said, “Today is a very good day. I want to sing a song for my friends and everyone present. The name of the song is ‘Lovers’.”
With that, he turned his head and nodded to the band.
The response at the scene was very enthusiastic. Guan Xiaotian looked at Wen Jianing on the stage a little inexplicably, and Le Shu leaned close to his ear and asked in a low voice, “Your friend?”
Guan Xiaotian shook his head.
Wen Jianing was of course different from the new female singer who had just sung up there. He was even more eye-catching than Guan Xiaotian who had been acting for many years. After all, he was now popular and had countless fans.
Someone applauded and some whistled at the scene.
Wen Jianing was very calm, holding the microphone with both hands, waiting for the prelude to play slowly.
The song ‘Lovers’ was a happy-paced love song. One of the lyrics was ‘A lover who finally gets married’, which was very suitable for the two people, Guan Xiaotian and Le Shu who had just made a successful marriage proposal today.
Although Wen Jianing did not explicitly say that the song was given to them, many people at the scene must have thought so.
Even Yang Wenchong asked Lu Jinlang in confusion, “He knows them well?”
Lu Jinlang didn’t speak.
Guan Xiaotian and Le Shu went back to their seats and sat down. Tang Yanzhong leaned in next to him and asked, “When did you meet Ke Xinhang?”
Guan Xiaotian replied, “I have seen him twice.”
Tang Yanzhong was a little puzzled, “He sang this for you?”
Guan Xiaotian hesitated, and shook his head, “I don’t know.”
Wen Jianing’s song was indeed sung to Guan Xiaotian, and to his own love that no longer had a future. In his entire life, had never tried to hurt himself like this over a relationship. If at that time Lu Jinlang wanted to separate and completely break up with him, he would probably not be as deep and painful as he was now.
After one song, everyone was cheering for him to sing another one.
Wen Jianing waved his hand with a smile and walked off the stage, but instead of returning to his original seat, he walked toward the outside of the bar.
Lu Jinlang saw this, stood up and followed out.
The few people remaining at this table were silent for a while, and Yang Wenchong said, “Are they fighting?”
Li Rong said, “You just noticed it?”
Yang Wenchong said, “I just know it when they were going to fight just now.” Then he added, “They are not going to fight again, right?”
Wen Lin glanced at the door with some worry, but he knew the both of them, Lu Jinlang and Wen Jianing were mature and calm people. So he said, “It’s better to let them sort it out themselves.”
At this time, Guan Xiaotian brought a few bottles of beer and put them down. It turned out that in order to celebrate tonight’s event, he took the initiative to invite all the guests to drink. Although he was not used to mingling with people like Li Rong and Yang Wenchong too much, since he invited the whole audience to drink, there was no reason to skip this table.
Several people raised their heads to thank him and congratulated him on his successful marriage proposal.
Guan Xiaotian smiled and asked, “Where are Ke Xinhang and Lu Jinlang? Why did they leave?”
Wen Lin said, “They have something to do.”
Guan Xiaotian took the initiative to fill a glass of wine, lifted it up and said, “Thank you, I toast everyone.”
So everyone at the table stood up and clinked glasses with him.
After drinking this glass of wine, and before Guan Xiaotian could turn around to leave, he saw Yuan Qian approaching this side with the wine glass, Tang Yanzhong behind her couldn’t stop her.
Yuan Qian’s personality was actually somewhat willful. She liked doing things regardless of the occasion and being reckless.
Seeing her coming, Li Rong first said, “Qianqian, have you been drinking?”
Yuan Qian looked at him while paying attention to Wen Lin.
Sometimes a woman’s intuition was always accurate, especially when facing a man she still loved. Although the reason Li Rong broke up with her had nothing to do with Wen Lin, and Li Rong’s official lover now was Jiang Yongfei, Yuan Qian still thought there was something between them.
As she held the glass, she said to Li Rong, “I’m drinking, do you want to have a drink with me?”
Before Li Rong had time to speak, Tang Yanzhong and Guan Xiaotian both began to persuade her to stop drinking. Everyone knew about Yuan Qian and Li Rong’s affairs. At that time it was Li Rong who decided to split up, and Yuan Qian disagreed.
After that, they were entangled for a long time. The two of them had completely broken up completely, but Yuan Qian herself didn’t seem to come out of the shadow of this relationship
Guan Xiaotian was quite uncomfortable with Yuan Qian’s situation. He didn’t like Li Rong and he didn’t think Li Rong was worth Yuan Qian’s sorrow.
Guan Xiaotian motioned to Le Shu to help pull Yuan Qian back.
When Le Shu went to pull Yuan Qian’s arm, Yuan Qian suddenly swung away from her with great force. The purpose was not just to avoid Le Shu’s hand, but to splash all the red wine in her wine glass on Wen Lin’s face.
Yuan Qian sneered and said, “I’m really sorry.”
She was too obvious, and Guan Xiaotian felt really embarrassed. It was a happy occasion tonight. He also sincerely invited Li Rong and the others to drink, but Yuan Qian had made such an unpleasant scene.
Wen Lin was a little dazed at the time. The red wine was splashed on his face, the hair on his forehead was all wet, and the wine was still trickling down.
Yang Wen Chong recalled that Wen Lin was a friend of Li Rong and Wen Jianing, and when he saw Yuan Qian’s insulting action, he immediately cursed, “Oh, shit!”
Yuan Qian was taken away by Tang Yanzhong and Le Shu, while Li Rong just gave her a hard look.
Even if Yang Wenchong couldn’t stand idly seeing it, he still couldn’t possibly grab on to a woman.
Guan Xiaotian reached out to take the paper towel on the table and stuffed it into Wen Lin’s hand, and said repeatedly, “I’m sorry, she drank too much and she was not sober.” After all, they came together, and he didn’t want Li Rong to think that they were with Yuan Qian on purpose.
Wen Lin was stuffed with a tissue in his hand. Only then did he come to his senses and saw everyone around him looking at him.
The bar, which was originally noisy, looked very quiet at this time, as all the people watched the good show at this spot. Wen Lin suddenly felt very embarrassed. He was a little flustered and wanted to leave, but Li Rong grabbed his wrist.
Li Rong took the tissue in his hand and wiped his face first, then took off his coat and put it on Wen Lin’s shoulders. He put his hand around his back and said, “Let’s go, I’ll go out with you.”
Wen Lin actually only just got a little wet on his clothes, so there was no need for Li Rong to put his coat on him. He didn’t know why, but he felt relieved when he felt the warmth of Li Rong’s body in the clothes on his back. He should’ve been very embarrassed, but under Li Rong’s unhurried pace, he became calmer.
They came out of the bar, and Li Rong directly sent Wen Lin to Lanlu’s guest room.
Before, Lu Jinlang chased Wen Jianing out of the bar and saw Wen Jianing walking alone in front. He chased him, took Wen Jianing’s arm, and led him toward a small balcony next to the corridor.
Lu Jinlang reached out and closed the glass door leading to the balcony. There were only two of them in the small space, and no one could escape.
Wen Jianing leaned back against the wall and looked at Lu Jinlang, “What else is there to say?”
Lu Jinlang said, “I don’t think we have reached this point.”
”Which point?” Wen Jianing asked him, “The point of breaking up?”
”Wen Jianing,” Lu Jinlang tried to call out the name.
Wen Jianing himself was slightly stunned, and there was something unspeakable in his heart. Because Lu Jinlang was just calling his name, but it was not the call full of emotion he hoped.
Lu Jinlang said, “Do you think I don’t need time to accept?”
Wen Jianing looked at him, “Can you accept it?”
Lu Jinlang did not speak.
The corner of Wen Jianing’s mouth twitched, and his smile fell short on his eyes. He said, “Since you can’t accept it at all, why do you need to say these words to hang on to me?”
Lu Jinlang took a deep breath, “When you first entered this body, did you easily accept this fact?”
Wen Jianing looked away.
He did not accept it easily, but he had to accept it because he had no choice. But Lu Jinlang was different; Lu Jinlang now had a choice.
Wen Jianing said, “I’m going to be thirty-six this year. When it comes to age, I am two years older than you. After so many years in the entertainment industry, I am not a newcomer in the entertainment industry as you thought it was. It was a mistake for you to choose me at the beginning.”
”No,” Lu Jinlang suddenly stretched out his hand, grabbed the back of his neck, and said, “No, there is no mistake.”
His palm which was warm and strong pressed against the back of Wen Jianing’s neck, his fingers went into his hair, and even the scalp felt the warmth of the force.
Lu Jinlang said, “I have never regretted my relationship with you, nor did I intend to end our relationship. I just want you to give me some time. The Wen Jianing I know is a sane and mature man, and the Xinhang I know has always been calm too. Why can’t we talk about this matter calmly?”
Wen Jianing looked at him. The heat in Lu Jinlang’s hands seemed to be transmitted to his whole body through his scalp, and he calmed down slowly. He said, “I’m sorry.”
When he heard Wen Jianing says sorry, Lu Jinlang suddenly felt his heart ache. He pressed Wen Jianing’s head against his shoulder and said, “Don’t say sorry.”
However, Wen Jianing insisted, “I’m sorry. I am asking you too much to deal with this matter rationally.”
Having lived for a few decades, it was the first time he felt this way. He was completely unable to grasp this relationship and could only leave it to Lu Jinlang to make a decision. This was the first time that he had released such an almost irrational emotion. If it weren’t for Lu Jinlang, he would not have done this behaviour to anyone. In fact, he was also afraid and guilty. He felt that he had to do something, but he didn’t know what to do.
Lu Jinlang stroked the nape of Wen Jianing’s neck.
Wen Jianing said, “You may laugh at me, but you are my first love.”
Lu Jinlang’s movements suddenly stopped.
Wen Jianing laughed at himself, “Isn’t it silly? A man in his thirties had never been in love. He fell in love with someone for the first time and wanted to be with a man.”
Lu Jinlang held his hand more tightly. Suddenly he felt that the flat, strange Wen Jianing’s image became alive.
The author has something to say:
Today’s chapter is a bit shorter and because it’s too late, so I’ll post it first.
But I’m just worried like a busybody lady since the number of words in the three chapters has become a little less
Actually I kinda cried when reading the last sentence when TL-ing it because it just sounds so beautiful that Lu Jinlang finally can see Wen Jianing for who he truly are…
