That night, Wen Jianing and Lu Jinlang were still in the same tent. They went down the mountain in the direction of the current this afternoon. If they estimate well, they should be able to go out from this jungle mountain tomorrow.
He was lying side by side with Lu Jinlang in the tent, and Wen Jianing turned his back to him.
Lu Jinlang was lying flat on his back, seemed to move his arm carelessly, and touched Wen Jianing’s back.
After a while, Wen Jianing crawled out of the sleeping bag.
”Where are you going?” Lu Jinlang asked.
Wen Jianing said, “I’m going to the toilet.”
Lu Jinlang put one hand under his head, and watching that Wen Jianing had stood up, he said, “I’ll go with you.”
He came out of the tent and walked towards the woods next to him, out of the range of the camera.
Lu Jinlang grabbed Wen Jianing’s arm and said, “Don’t go too far, watch out for the wild animals.”
Wen Jianing stopped, turned around, put his arms around Lu Jinlang’s shoulder and said, “Your luck’s not bad today, huh?”
Lu Jinlang smiled upon hearing this, “You think so?”
Wen Jianing did not speak. He was somewhat upset when he saw Zhao Qin holding Lu Jinlang like that, but there was nothing to be angry about. First, Lu Jinlang was not interested in her, and secondly, she was also frightened.
Lu Jinlang reached out and touched his face, and said, “You know I like men.” He was not the same as Wen Jianing. He had not been interested in women since his adolescence.
“Can’t get it hard,” Lu Jinlang whispered in Wen Jianing’s ear.
Wen Jianing smiled, put his head on Lu Jinlang’s shoulder, and sighed heavily.
”Tired?” Lu Jinlang asked him.
Wen Jianing said, “A bit, but it’s quite interesting. I am afraid it will be difficult to have these experiences in the future.”
Lu Jinlang stretched out his hand and patted his back lightly, “It’s okay, we’re probably going down the mountain tomorrow, and we can go back the day after tomorrow.”
Wen Jianing nodded, and said after a while, “With so many people today, I am afraid that photos and videos of Zhao Qin’s incident will be posted on the Internet.”
Lu Jinlang said, “I will talk to Zhao Qin about whether or not these shots should be leaked out. She will talk to the program team and the TV station by herself, and I could help if she needs my help.”
Wen Jianing looked up at him, “Do you think she will voluntarily leak it out?”
Lu Jinlang smiled, “If I were her, maybe I would. As for what she thinks, I don’t know.”
Wen Jianing said, “You don’t mind?”
Lu Jinlang said in his ear, “Movie promotion, you have been filming for so many years. It’s not like you wouldn’t understand it.”
Wen Jianing understood what Lu Jinlang meant, sighed again, and said, “I’m lucky.”
Lu Jinlang touched his head and kissed the top of his head.
At this time, both of them heard footsteps coming in their direction at the same time.
Wen Jianing immediately released Lu Jinlang, took a step back, and then walked in the direction of the sound. He had a flashlight in his hand that he turned off when he was talking to Lu Jinlang just now. At this time, he turned on the flashlight again and aimed at the person coming.
The people who came over also had flashlights in their hands, and they all saw each other.
When he saw that the person here was Jian Jun, Wen Jianing relaxed slightly, and asks, “Going to pee?”
Jian Jun nodded and was about to speak when he noticed that there was another person behind Wen Jianing. He raised the flashlight and was taken aback when he saw Lu Jinlang.
Wen Jianing said, “We should go back.”
He didn’t say what he was doing, probably by default, they all just came out to pee.
It’s not easy for Jian Jun to ask. When passing by Lu Jinlang, he greeted, “Director Lu.”
Lu Jinlang nodded to him.
Jian Jun couldn’t help turning his head to look at the back of the two leaving. He saw Lu Jinlang step forward and put his arm around Wen Jianing’s waist. Although he had guessed it a long time ago, Jian Jun suddenly felt an unexplainable melancholy at this time. He sighed and continued to walk towards the depths of the woods.
They woke up the next morning and continued down the mountain along the road by the river. As expected, it went smoothly and they found traces of people walking and surviving.
Wen Jianing realized what it was like to be exhausted. Although it was only three days, he felt that this experience would not be forgotten for a lifetime.
Lu Jinlang was also a little out of step, and the only one who was still in high spirits was Matthew.
He saw that there was a road from a distance, and immediately ran off the hillside, then stood in the middle of the road and started stopping the car.
They finally stopped a small truck. It was late at the time and there were almost no other cars passing by. They crowded into the same car and were sent to the nearest village.
Although it was a remote mountain village, there were still young people who recognized Lu Jinlang, and a young girl even recognized Wen Jianing.
It was not easy to find a place to stay, and it took them a long time to finally settled down. When they finally settled in, it was completely dark.
The program team then borrowed a kitchen from a family and paid for some vegetables and pork, and the four guests would cook a meal for Matthew to show their appreciation for his help over the past few days.
The kitchen had a wood-burning cooker.
Among the four guests, only Lu Jinlang could cook, and even Zhao Qin did not.
So several people divided their work among themselves, washing vegetables, cutting meat, and burning fire. Lu Jinlang was in charge of the kitchen himself.
The cameraman was taking pictures of Lu Jinlang’s cooking, and he suddenly sighed, “So cool.”
Lu Jinlang turned his head to look at the camera and smiled.
The cameraman was a man in his early thirties, and then he said, “Your wife must be very happy in the future.”
Lu Jinlang was still smiling and did not speak.
After dinner was made, everyone had a lively meal together and drank some beer.
Tonight was the last filming. The shooting would be over until they go to bed. Naturally, a car would come to pick them up and they would return to the city tomorrow morning.
The rooms for lodging were limited, and the crew still found an open space to set up a tent.
In the end, Lu Jinlang did not have to share a bed with Wen Jiaying.
As he sat on the bed, Wen Jianing said goodnight to the camera, then turned off the light in the room and lay on the bed.
The cameraman turned off the camera and finished shooting.
Wen Jianing stood up again and shook hands with him, and said, “It’s been hard these few days.”
The cameraman waved his hand, took the camera out of his room, and went to sleep in the tent outside.
Wen Jianing lay down and felt the darkness and silence of the night inside the mountain village. His body was exhausted to the extreme. Now the environment was pretty good, and he almost fell asleep as soon as he closed his eyes.
However, after falling asleep for only a few minutes, someone knocked on his door from outside.
Wen Jianing opened his eyes in a daze, and heard Zhao Qin asking outside, “Can I come in?”
Before he could answer, Zhao Qin pushed the door directly in. These days, he had become accustomed to sleeping outdoors, and with the film crew outside the courtyard, he didn’t even remember to lock the door just now.
There was no light in the room, Zhao Qin went directly to the bed and sat down, and said, “Director Lu, I can’t sleep, can we have a chat?”
Wen Jianing was taken aback and remembered that after eating just now, he temporarily decided to change rooms with Lu Jinlang. Zhao Qin and the others probably didn’t know. Zhao Qin was now surprisingly mistaking him for Lu Jinlang.
Zhao Qin didn’t get a response, and said to himself, “Director Lu, what did you say I should do about the incident yesterday?”
Wen Jianing said at this moment, “You seem to have gone to the wrong room.”
Zhao Qin stood up suddenly in shock, raised his voice and said, “Who are you?”
”Shh—” Wen Jianing whispered, “You should keep your voice down, and don’t let the TV station people hear it.”
Zhao Qin stammered and said, “Xinhang ge…?”
Wen Jianing said, “Well, you walked to the wrong room. I think that Director Lu is already asleep at this time, so go back to sleep.”
Zhao Qin heard the words and quickly said, “Oh, sorry, I went to the wrong room. We had better rest early.” After that, she hurriedly walked out of the room and closed the door.
Wen Jianing waited until she left and remained sitting on the bed, and wondered if Zhao Qin would go back to the room where Lu Jinlang was staying? Should he go and see? But after he thought about it, even if Zhao Qin touched Lu Jinlang on the bed, Lu Jinlang couldn’t get it up. He worried too much, and he should go to bed earlier. Lu Jinlang was an adult, there was nothing to be scared of, presumably, Matthew and Jian Jun would not be interested in touching him in bed.
The three days of shooting ended.
After returning home, Wen Jianing rested at home for nearly a week before feeling fully recovered.
The show hadn’t even aired yet, but it had already become a hit on the internet because of the photo of Zhao Qin that had gone viral.
Zhao Qin and the name of the show were on the hot search list for a while.
When Zhao Qin was mentioned, it was inevitable to mention that she was acting in a movie directed by Lu Jinlang. For a while, many people on the internet berated the hype, and no one knew whether it was for Zhao Qin or a movie, but no matter whether the photos came out for hype or not, they achieved the desired effect.
Wen Jianing asked Lu Jinlang, “You let Zhao Qin leak the photos?”
Lu Jinlang shook his head, “I didn’t say anything.”
At that time, two people sat on the sofa and watched the evening news.
Wen Jianing propped his head with one hand, “Did Zhao Qin talk to you that night?”
”Which night?” Lu Jinlang asked him.
Wen Jianing didn’t speak and glanced towards the middle of Lu Jinlang’s legs and just smiled.
Later, they appeared on a talk show. This time Lu Jinlang only took Wen Jianing and Jian Jun. It was a serious talk show with a serious atmosphere.
Although Wen Jianing and Jian Jun were to accompany him, the host focused his main attention on Lu Jinlang, with questions one after another.
When the question comes to private affairs, the host asked him, “How is your relationship now?”
Lu Jinlang was silent and shook his head. In fact, he could have chosen to half-hide it, such as telling the other party that he had a stable love interest but did not intend to disclose it. But he denied it because he knew that once he admitted it, it would arouse the curiosity of the media. He was afraid that he would be surrounded and intercepted, and finally, expose the relationship between him and Wen Jianing.
The host asked again, “What kind of girl do you like?”
Lu Jinlang said, “There is no preference. Because when you finally fell in love, you might find that it might be someone you thought in the past that you would never have a relationship with.”
The host smiled, “It’s a bit ambiguous.”
Lu Jinlang smiled and told the host, “Just don’t block your way. You can’t ever be sure who you will fall in love with.”
When he said this, Wen Jianing, who was sitting on the sofa next to him, also smiled.
When the host asked him later, he said, “I agree with Director Lu on this.”
The author has something to say:
It’s just a simple survival in the wilderness… like Bear Grylls kind
Aahahaha, Jinlang marking his terrority in front of Jian Jun (´∀｀)
