Early the next morning, Wen Jianing and Lu Jinlang left Lanlu. They had to return to the crew to prepare for the final filming of the movie.
The location of the shooting this time was a university in the city.
The school was full of people, which caused a lot of hindrance to the shooting. The biggest hindrance was caused by Wen Jianing, who was surprisingly popular on the university campus. Almost half of the schoolgirls came to see him filming after hearing the news, and everyone took out their mobile phones to take a picture of him.
Later, the assistant director shouted with a big loudspeaker, hoping that the students could cooperate, and only then did they reluctantly vacate the small filming location.
Lu Jinlang was naturally popular too, but right now he looked more serious. During the breaks, there were many young students who went to Wen Jianing for a photo, but very few people come to look for him.
Occasionally one or two people come to ask for an autograph, and they were very nervous as if they were afraid to disturb him.
Wen Jianing wore a loose, light-coloured T-shirt, carrying a shoulder bag, with bangs set up to cover his smooth forehead. When he walked around the university campus, he looked like a beautiful young man.
This scene was actually the beginning of the movie.
He was walking on the trail in the school after class when his cell phone rang suddenly. The call was from his mother, telling him that she was going to remarry.
Wen Jianing stood on the spot, still holding the phone in his hand, looking into the distance without focus. He was obviously still at a loss, not knowing what to do with the news.
That night, a hot topic about Ke Xinhang appeared on the Internet. The name of the topic was Boy with Ethereal Beauty. The photo was a side profile of Wen Jianing taken by someone using a mobile phone. People asked what did it mean by a Boy with Ethereal Beauty? The person who initiated the topic explained, that Ke Xinhang looked ethereal and eloquent, with a fresh breath of uncertainty. Although the name was too exaggerated, it triggered a fan war on the Internet, but Wen Jianing’s current popularity is still evident.
Because the scenes in the school were all Wen Jianing’s scenes alone, the shooting went very smoothly. Within two days, the whole movie was successfully completed as planned.
On the evening of the finale, Lu Jinlang, as an investor and behind the scenes director, invited the entire crew to have a good meal. He reserved a few tables in a high-end restaurant in the city to comfort the hard-working film crew.
Although Jian Jun did not participate in the last two days of filming, he was there for this dinner, and Wen Tinghuan was with him.
Wen Tinghuan said to Wen Jianing, “Is it me or do you seem to be glowing?”
Wen Jianing smiled and said nothing.
Wen Tinghuan “Tsk Tsk” twice, “Look at how you look. Have you reconciled with Director Lu?”
Wen Jianing didn’t say a word, so she continued.
Wen Tinghuan said, “The other day you quarrelled and you looked depressed. Now you have reconciled and happiness is written on your face. It turns out that men’s love is also terrible.”
Wen Jianing approached her and whispered, “It’s good, as long as you get it.”
Wen Tinghuan said, “Bah!”
Jian Jun sat next to him and watched the two of them speak in a low voice. He also noticed that his senior was obviously radiant throughout the past two days, and he seemed to be more vivid and distinct.
At today’s dinner, after Director Lu made a speech, he let everyone open up to eat and drink. Everyone had a good time.
Jian Jun was too distracted to refuse anyone. Whenever someone toasts, he just started to drink without saying a word. As a result, he was lying and not moving on the table.
On the contrary, the main star, Lu Jinlang, was clearly the target to be surrounded by people. But he didn’t move, nor push or dodge the other. In the end, he also didn’t seem too sober.
In the second half of the banquet, Zhao Qin took a wine glass and sat beside Lu Jinlang. She insisted on toasting him and rubbed her chest to his arm from time to time.
Lu Jinlang turned his head and found Wen Jianing propping his face with one hand and smiling at him. He also smiled, picked up the wine glass and moved Zhao Qin and then drank in one gulp. Then he stood up with his glass and walked to Wen Jianing, pretending to toast him.
The person sitting next to Wen Jianing simply gave way to Lu Jinlang.
Lu Jinlang put down the wine glass, and Wen Jianing asked him, “Are you okay?” At the same time, he changed the wine in the glass to tea.
Lu Jinlang looked at his movements and said, “It’s okay,” then he glanced at Jian Jun, “But your junior seems to be dying.”
Wen Jianing turned his head and took a look, and saw Wen Tinghuan looking at Jian Jun worryingly, so he said, “We’ll take him back later.”
Lu Jinlang said, “Okay,” he brought his tea to clink with Wen Jianing, and then drank it in one gulp.
Later, Jian Jun was helped out by Wen Jianing and Lu Jinlang.
Wen Tinghuan did not drink, and drove in the front, while Lu Jinlang sat in the passenger seat. Wen Jianing helped Jian Jun into the back seat.
Jian Jun fell asleep, and Wen Jianing let him rest his head on his shoulder.
In the front row, Lu Jinlang was asking Wen Tinghuan about Wen Jianing’s next work schedule.
Wen Tinghuan gave Lu Jinlang the count of commercial advertisements that come for Wen Jianing and said that Wen Jianing could take a break for a while. There was no major work arrangement for the time being. He would shoot two commercials halfway through, and he could also consider showing in some variety shows to maintain a certain exposure and popularity. Wen Tinghuan didn’t know the relationship between Lu Jinlang and Lei Xing, but she felt that Wen Jianing could ask Lu Jinlang for advice on the matter of accepting advertisements. After all, Lu Jinlang maintained his image very well, and he also accepted some commercials and variety shows, on the premise that they wouldn’t be excessive.
The car ran over a stone on the road and bumped.
Jian Jun was awake. He slightly raised his head and saw Wen Jianing’s side face through the light from the streetlamp outside the window. Under the hazy light, the lines of his face seemed particularly soft. Jian Jun’s head was in a mess and suddenly he reached out and touched Wen Jianing’s chest.
Wen Jianing was taken aback and looked down at him, “What are you doing?”
Jian Jun was very disappointed, Wen Jianing really had no chest. He lifted his head from Wen Jianing’s shoulders with difficulty and leaned against the window glass in a different direction.
When Lu Jinlang and Wen Tinghuan heard Wen Jianing yell, they asked, “What’s wrong?”
”It’s okay,” Wen Jianing himself felt a little strange, he said, “Jian Jun had too much drink.”
Wen Tinghuan said, “This young fellow seems to be getting blue balls.”
Wen Jianing’s eyelids twitched, and said to Wen Tinghuan, “It’s better for girls to be more civilized with words.”
Lu Jinlang smiled slightly when he heard the words.
They sent Jian Jun home, and Wen Tinghuan drove Lu Jinlang and Wen Jianing back to Beiao Garden.
As soon as he entered the room, Lu Jinlang hugged him from behind, went to the sofa in the living room and sat him down on his lap.
Wen Jianing tried to struggle but gave up without success.
Lu Jinlang smiled lightly.
Wen Jianing was a little upset, “What are you laughing at?”
Lu Jinlang just remembered Wen Jianing’s reaction after Wen Tinghuan said that. He felt it was amusing and couldn’t help asking, “How did you react when you woke up in Xinhang’s body?”
That was not a good memory. Wen Jianing knew that Lu Jinlang had no malice, but he was unwilling to make fun of his body like that, so he said, “Nothing, just thinking about how the real Ke Xinhang came over these years.”
When he brought the topic to Ke Xinhang, it didn’t seem so easy. Sure enough, Lu Jinlang sighed slightly, as if thinking of the original young man.
Wen Jianing felt like he had just drank vinegar*, he asked, “Do you feel sorry for him?”
This question was still a bit difficult to answer. To be honest, as long as Lu Jinlang thought that Ke Xinhang was the original owner of the body in front of him, he indeed felt slightly apologetic, but he also knew who was the one in front of him. He said, “If one day you and Xinhang both recover your bodies…”
Wen Jianing turned his head, suddenly a little nervous about his hypothesis.
Lu Jinlang took his hand and kissed it, “Then I will definitely look for you instead of him.”
In the beginning, the attraction was due to the body, but the sexual attraction was always temporary, and the most beautiful and deepest was the attraction of the soul. Lu Jinlang knew better than anyone which person he was in love with.
After the film was finished, Wen Jianing got a short vacation, and Lu Jinlang continued to carry out the post-production of the film.
Wen Jianing completely relaxed for a few days, waking up normally every day, and then jogging, watching movies, and even agonizing about learning how to cook, frying a steak for Lu Jinlang.
And because Lu Jinlang had been in and out of the Beiao Garden for a long time, it was impossible not to be discovered by the media at all.
A tabloid reporter squatted at the gate of the Beiao Garden for a few days and found that Lu Jinlang had left early and returned late, spending the night here every day, and came to the conclusion that he was living there with his lover.
But because of the tight security of the Beiao Garden, the paparazzi couldn’t get in anyway, so they could only make hypotheses based on the residents of the Beiao Garden. The final conclusion was that Lu Jinlang was likely to be living with an actress named Jin Junfang.
The reason was that Jin Junfang was a single woman. One day, Lu Jinlang met her while driving out, and he took her along for a while. As a result, she was photographed by the reporter. In fact, Jin Junfang was older than Lu Jinlang, but the paparazzi would naturally fabricate a love affair between an older woman and a younger man, which did not hinder their performance.
It was also after Wen Jianing received a call from Wen Tinghuan that he learned that Lu Jinlang had been followed by a paparazzi.
Wen Tinghuan especially found a tabloid to show him and told him to be careful not to be found out.
Wen Jianing knew the seriousness of the matter. What he was most afraid of now was that the paparazzi had found a way to get in and took photos of Lu Jinlang entering and leaving his house.
After a long hesitation, he finally decided to move out temporarily.
Lu Jinlang didn’t care about this and asked Wen Jianing whether he wanted to live in an apartment in the city centre or a villa in the suburbs.
At that time, Lu Jinlang bought two houses for the convenience of living with him in the apartment in the city centre, and the reporter didn’t know that Lu Jinlang had a house there. It was more convenient to live there while waiting for this sensitive time to pass.
So Wen Jianing said to Lu Jinlang, “Let’s move back to the apartment.”
There were actually many fond memories of the two people in that apartment. When he thought about it now, Wen Jianing still felt a little nostalgic.
When he moved back, Wen Jianing also took the two bears that Lu Jinlang had given him in the past. These two bears were taken from here at that time, and now he sent them back and placed them in their original positions.
Everything looked like he just never moved away. When he moved away, Lu Jinlang also followed him. A cleaner comes to clean the room once a month to maintain its original condition of the room.
Wen Jianing was even able to find the toothbrush he didn’t take away in the bathroom.
He wore a hat and sunglasses, and he went to the supermarket with Wen Tinghuan to buy a lot of daily necessities.
Wen Tinghuan said, “You are living like a housewife now.”
”Is there something wrong with that?” Wen Jianing chose the brand of shampoo, “It’s just one way of living.”
Wen Tinghuan told him, “Remember to come back to the company in a couple of days when you have time. Zheng laoshi wanted to talk to you guys.”
”You guys?” Wen Jianing asked.
Wen Tinghuan nodded, “You, Wen Lin, Yi Nan.”
Wen Jianing put down the things in his hands, “Has he decided to form a group for us?”
”Group my ass!” Wen Tinghuan didn’t know what had affected her recently. She always swore casually. After she finished speaking, she slapped herself in the mouth, deliberately trying to get rid of this bad habit.
Wen Jianing glared at her, but it wasn’t seen clearly because he was wearing sunglasses
Wen Tinghuan said, “Maybe they want to give you a single, as a commemoration of your debut, and as a way to satisfy Wen Lin’s obsession.”
Wen Jianing nodded silently.
That night, Lu Jinlang hugged him and lay in the bathtub with one hand repeatedly rubbing the smoothest part of his thigh. Probably because he had also been awakened by this familiar environment.
Wen Jianing mentioned that Wen Tinghuan told him about the single during the day.
Lu Jinlang said to him, “I went to Bai Shengzhe and wanted you guys to sing the theme song of the movie.”
”Us three?” Wen Jianing was a little surprised.
Lu Jinlang said, “You are one of them. As for who you should sing with, Wen Lin and Yi Nan are recommended by Bai Shengzhe. At that time, I will go to Lei Xing to make a final decision.”
Wen Jianing said immediately, “Wen Lin.”
Lu Jinlang chuckled, “I don’t have any problem with it, but you should think about the movie first. Wen Lin may not be more suitable to sing it than Yi Nan.”
Wen Jianing said, “Wen Lin is suitable, trust me.”
Lu Jinlang smiled without saying a word, touched Wen Jianing’s face with one hand, pulled his head over and kissed it hard.
*Wen Jianing felt like he just drank vinegar means that he is actually feeling jealous
So cute, huh. Feeling jealous of the OG body same like when Lu Jinlang feels jealous of OG Wen Jianing
