For people like Ma Jianguo, being able to confess his secret love to the girl he had a crush on, probably took all his courage to do so.
Fang Wei did not change the script according to Wen Jianing’s performance during the audition, but still followed the plot of the script. He probably didn’t want Ma Jianguo to have too much inner drama, and he did not want Wen Jianing to steal the limelight from the heroine.
Wen Jianing wore a pure white short-sleeved T-shirt, blue sweatpants under his body, two white sticks on the outside of the trouser legs, and sneakers under his feet. His hair was shortened a bit, and he wore a pair of black-framed glasses on his face. Although people could vaguely see his fair and delicate appearance, such young people might not have been very popular in that era.
Fang Wei was very impressed with Wen Jianing. After seeing Wen Jianing’s clothes, he nodded in satisfaction.
After the self-study next night, Qin Ruo picked up her schoolbag and hurriedly went outside. Ma Jianguo followed her and caught up with Qin Ruo in the corridor and asked, “Can we go back together?”
Qin Ruo accepted.
Two people walked together on the street outside the school, because it was the time for the next self-study night period, and many students came and went.
When facing Ma Jianguo, the young girl Qinruo obviously did not have the shyness when she was facing Jiang Zixin, but she was a little absent-minded.
As they walked forward, Ma Jianguo expressed his love to Qin Ruo, “Qin Ruo, I like you.”
Qin Ruo stopped and looked at Ma Jianguo in surprise.
The boy played by Wen Jianing was nervous and shy, yet he had to confess although the odds were small, because they were about to graduate from high school and had to go their separate ways in the future.
Qin Ruo said, “I’m sorry, I have to study hard. Now is not the time to talk about feelings.”
Ma Jianguo was unwilling to give up hope, he said, “There’s no rush, we can wait until the college entrance examination is over, I—”
Qin Ruo shook her head vigorously, “I probably won’t fall in love until I graduate from college. I don’t want to interrupt my studies.”
Ma Jianguo looked lost.
Qin Ruo said again, “I’m sorry, I’m going to go back.” After that, she turned around to speed up her pace. At this moment, she saw Jiang Zixin standing in front of the nearby canteen.
Jiang Zixin came out to buy cigarettes. He took cigarettes and matches and stood on the roadside to see Qin Ruo. Then he lit a match with one hand and made an elegant cigarette lighting action, deliberately showing it to Qin Ruo.
Qin Ruo looked at Jiang Zixin, the corners of her mouth couldn’t stop rising slightly, and the light of love twinkled in his eyes.
Ma Jianguo had noticed all this. He originally wanted to catch up with Qin Ruo, but after seeing Qin Ruo, he stood in a daze. He lowered his head and held his schoolbag as he walked away slowly.
Wen Jianing and Lu Jinlang finished all their scenes in one take. Although Jin Zhenzhen had several NGs, the shooting at night was generally smooth.
The students who were invited as extras couldn’t stay up late, so the crew was ready to call it a day.
Wen Jianing changed his clothes in the costume truck. When he got down, he saw a black car parked in front of him. The driver slightly pushed the window down and said to him, “Get in the car.”
Today, Lu Jinlang seemed to have enough rest, and he looked in good spirits.
Wen Jianing looked down at him curiously and said, “Where did the car come from?”
Lu Jinlang said, “I borrowed it from Li Jiazhen. Get in the car and I’ll take you for a late-night snack.”
Lu Jinlang changed cars with Li Jiazhen and asked Li Jiazhen to take his rental car back to the hotel. Lu Yunan naturally followed him back.
He let Wen Jianing get in the car and didn’t go back to the city with the crew, but drove in the opposite direction towards a county near the town.
“I heard there’s a roast beef shop over there that tastes good, just in time for a snack,” Lu Jinlang said while entering the address in the navigation.
Wen Jianing asked him, “How do you know about it?”
Lu Jinlang said, “Someone on Weibo recommended it to me”
Lu Jinlang’s Weibo was not updated frequently, but recently someone learned that he was filming here, and left him a long message telling him what delicious and interesting things were nearby.
“Are you afraid that going back too late will affect tomorrow’s filming?”
Lu Jinlang was still fumbling with the navigation, “The weather forecast says it will rain tomorrow. Do you want to bet with me? We won’t be able to film the scenes tomorrow.”
Wen Jianing took the initiative to take over the navigator, let him concentrate on driving, and entered the address himself.
The old road leading from the town to the county was an old road. There were no street lights on the road. There were only tall trees and large farmland on both sides. At night, it was pitch black, and only the car lights illuminated a small area in front.
Wen Jianing didn’t have much interest in food, nor could he understand Lu Jinlang’s attitude that he had to find something delicious while driving around on a strange road late at night, but he was gladly looking forward for Lu Jinlang’s invitation at the moment.
On the road, Wen Jianing asked Lu Jinlang a question, “What do you think of Jin Zhenzhen?”
Lu Jinlang shrugged and didn’t speak. Wen Jianing guessed that he meant not much.
Jin Zhenzhen was undoubtedly lucky to be selected by Fang Wei, but her pure character was undoubtedly a limitation. It was unknown whether she could make a breakthrough in the future.
Wen Jianing then asked him, “Then what do you think of me?”
Lu Jinlang just smiled and said to Wen Jianing, “If I give you the male lead role, I believe you can play it.”
Of course he can play it. The role should have been his!
Wen Jianing did not speak but was very satisfied with Lu Jinlang’s answer.
After driving for about half an hour, Lu Jinlang noticed that there was a fork in the road ahead, with the old road on the left and a newly built road on the right.
There was no special prompt for the navigation, so Lu Jinlang still drove forward along with the navigation. After driving for about five or six minutes, the two found that the road was blocked.
Wen Jianing said, “Maybe we should have taken that newly built road.”
Lu Jinlang immediately turned around, returned to the fork in the road, and drove the car onto the newly built road. After driving straight ahead for more than ten minutes this time, two people found that the navigation no longer work.
Perhaps because the road had just been repaired, the navigation system on this car hadn’t had time to be updated.
At the next fork in the road, Lu Jinlang pulled over and parked the car.
He called Lu Yunan and asked Lu Yunan to help him find a local person to find out about the road.
Lu Yunan soon replied to Lu Jinlang telling him that there was a new road to the county. They just need to turn left at the first intersection and go straight to get there.
After hanging up the phone, the car suddenly stalled when Lu Jinlang started the car. He wanted to start the engine again but nothing happened.
Wen Jianing glanced at him. At this time, there was no light from the dashboard, and the two of them couldn’t even see each other’s faces clearly.
Lu Jinlang got out of the car and found a flashlight in the rear compartment with the faint light of the mobile phone, and then stepped forward to open the front cover of the car to check the cause of the malfunction.
Wen Jianing followed, bent down beside him, put his hands on his knees, and asked, “Can you fix it?”
Lu Jinlang said, “I’ll try.”
However, as soon as he said that, a heavy thunder rolled across the horizon.
“Ah,” Wen Jianing looked at him, “You won the bet, but you don’t have to wait until tomorrow. Looks like it will rain soon.”
After the thunder, they felt a strong wind blowing on the empty highway at the same time, which seemed to be the prelude to a rainstorm.
There was a sound of thunder, accompanied by lightning and strong wind. It looked a little terrifying.
Lu Jinlang exhaled a long breath, with some helplessness, he said, “Get in the car first.”
The two got in the car one after the other, and the heavy rain suddenly fell from the sky. Only a sound of “whoosh” was heard, and the big raindrops fell on the roof of the car and the ground of the road.
Lu Jinlang called Lu Yunan and asked him to drive a car to pick them up.
Wen Jianing said, “We’re going to trouble Yunan again.”
Lu Jinlang said, “It can’t be helped.”
Two people were trapped in such a small dark space.
Wen Jianing saw that his mobile phone didn’t have much battery, and he didn’t dare to keep the screen on all the time.
In this environment, if two people didn’t speak, the atmosphere would be a little awkward. So Wen Jianing said, “Do you feel sorry that you can’t eat roast beef today?”
Lu Jinlang said, “There is nothing to regret. If not today, then there’s tomorrow unless the boss ceases to sell. I will always have the opportunity to eat.”
“The more you can’t eat, the more you want to eat?”
Lu Jinlang smiled lightly and said, “Yes, just like how it’s with you.”
He didn’t know why, but when Wen Jianing heard Lu Jinlang say this, for a moment, he felt a little complicated. He said, “Does that mean once you’ve had it, you’ll never be interested again?”
Lu Jinlang asked him back, “Isn’t it more unforgettable after eating delicious things once?”
Wen Jianing said, “But no matter how delicious it is, you won’t be able to eat it every day, right?”
Lu Jinlang laughed again, “I would like to eat it every day.”
Wen Jianing didn’t answer again.
In the darkness, Lu Jinlang suddenly gently covered his right hand on the back of his left hand. He then held Wen Jianing’s hand, brought it to his mouth and kissed it.
Wen Jianing suddenly felt that in this environment and atmosphere, he didn’t think he would do anything with Lu Jinlang. He was feeling sorry for God’s deliberate arrangement.
But Lu Jinlang was obviously unwilling to miss this opportunity. He stretched out his hand to clasp Wen Jianing’s back neck and leaned over to kiss his lips.
Wen Jianing had always felt that Lu Jinlang’s kisses were hot and forceful. He liked this kind of kiss very much because it could easily arouse people’s emotions. He stretched out his hand and hugged Lu Jinlang’s shoulders, and then he felt Lu Jinlang’s hands clasp the back of his neck harder, and the kiss became more intense.
Due to the shortness of breath and the temperature difference between inside and outside, white fog condenses on the window glass. The rain was still making a crackling and hitting sound on the car. Both visually and auditory created an isolated effect.
They were in a rainstorm in an unfamiliar environment. It should be horrible, but this closed car gave Wen Jianing a sense of security.
He felt Lu Jinlang holding his arm with one hand and supporting his waist with one hand, dragging him to the driver’s seat and straddling Lu Jinlang.
After all, they were two big men, and this position was somewhat cramped. His back was against the steering wheel, and there was no more room to move.
Lu Jinlang kissed his neck and took off his belt with one hand.
“No!” Wen Jianing suddenly began to stop him.
Lu Jinlang held his hands and wrists together with one hand, making him unable to break away, and his voice was a little cold, “No?”
Wen Jianing fell forward, placing his head on Lu Jinlang’s shoulder, and said, “Not here. Yunan will come anytime. Let’s talk about it when we go back.”
Lu Jinlang finally let go of his hand when he heard the words, the fierce kiss became gentle, fell on his side face and neck, and finally licked his almost invisible Adam’s apple.
Notes: 29 chapters to go to chapter 56… Hopefully I can reach it by the end of this month max…
Yes Wen Jianing is a professional c-ckblocker.
