Love Rival Is Getting Prettier Everyday - Chap 117
Chapter 117: Too Fast
Yan Qiuchi licked his lips nervously. The sudden thought that he had just kissed Shen Jintai made his whole body hot as he said, “Good night.” His voice has changed, becoming hoarser and more tense.
Seeing Yan Qiuchi about to leave, Shen Jintai grabbed his arm. At this moment, Shen Xiaomei suddenly shouted, “Brother!”
Shen Jintai abruptly let him go. Yan Qiuchi looked at him; his eyes seemed to be shaking, and his face was red. It had tension and excitement written all over it. Yan Qiuchi smiled. His excitement had infected Shen Jintai, who suddenly reached out and closed the door.
Shen Jintai didn’t know how to react. His mind was completely blank.
Why was he kissing when he hadn’t accepted Yan Qiuchi’s confession? Then, after being kissed, he didn’t say a single word. Did this mean that he accepted it by default?! He didn’t! He was just dazed, that’s all!
He immediately opened the door again, but Yan Qiuchi had already returned to his room.
Yan Qiuchi was too excited. He had lost control, and everything happened so suddenly that he wasn’t prepared at all. He had never dared to be so presumptuous for fear of annoying Shen Jintai. Without certainty, he wouldn’t have made such a move.
But seeing Shen Jintai’s reaction just now was a bit unexpected. The ambiguity he felt was not wishful thinking. This showed that Shen Jintai at least wouldn’t reject him anymore. This could be counted as a qualitative leap!
Yan Qiuchi pursed his lips. This kiss happened too quickly, and he wanted to taste it again. He only remembered the soft and tender feeling of Shen Jintai’s lips, just as he had imagined them.
As for anything else, he didn’t remember it at all, but it didn’t matter. After the first time, there will inevitably be a second and a third. He would have every opportunity to plunder slowly.
“Brother,” Shen Xiaomei kneeled on the bed and said, “Your face is so red.”
Shen Jintai’s face was still hot. As an actor, he really wanted to film a kissing scene. He felt that he was competent in his skills to perform well. However, being kissed in reality was far different from acting, so his psychological feelings were awry, causing him to become confused.
“Brother was scorched by hot steam,” He said shyly. “Go to bed.”
“Brother, your hair is still wet,” Shen Xiaomei said.
Shen Jintai went to the bathroom to blow-dry his hair. The more he thought about what had happened, the more he felt that his current performance was inadequate.
Was this the reaction that a 1 should have had? He looked in the mirror and found that his ears had turned completely red. Fuck, this was such a look of being seduced!
After coming back from drying his hair, Shen Xiaomei was already asleep, shocking Shen Jintai at the speed at which the child could fall asleep. He called to her softly, but she remained motionless. Her breath was short, and her sleeping appearance was incredibly cute. The innocence diluted the heat in his heart. He covered her with a blanket and laid down next to her as he began replying to Bai Qingquan’s messages.
He sent: [You’re dead.]
There was none of the gentleness and love that used to be there when he was planning to attack Bai Qingquan.
Bai Qingquan immediately replied: [What’s wrong?]
Shen Jintai: [Your boss saw the message you sent to me.]
[Fuck.] Bai Qingquan sent several emoticons that showed a person covering his face while screaming: [How did he see it? Was he looking at your phone? Have you two reached the point where you can look at each other’s phone?!]
[I was using my phone to watch a video, and he happened to be there. He saw everything you sent.]
[Fuck me.] Bai Qingquan became embarrassingly hot. It was like an employee who’s been a bright breeze and moon* on the surface, but was making waves with friends in private, but the waves reached the boss. How embarrassing!
*(清风明月) It refers to not making friends casually. Also, a metaphor for leisurely or nothingness. || In this context, he’s describing how he’s usually a person who seems reserved on the surface (so he doesn’t make friends casually), but in private is actually a wild person, and his boss found out about this other side of him.
Shen Jintai: [Fuck you?! I’m the one fucking embarrassed here.]
Bai Qingquan: [I’m fucking embarrassed too! Ahhhhh. No, I’m so embarrassed I might die from it. How can I face him in the future? I have always followed the fairy route in front of President Yan!]
Shen Jintai: [Now everyone has seen your true colors.]
Bai Qingquan: [Did he say anything? What was his reaction?]
Shen Jintai: [No reaction.]
He couldn’t tell a soul about being attacked by Yan Qiuchi, especially if that soul was Bai Qingquan.
Shen Jintai pursed his lips as he texted: [I just saw an emotional question and thought it was interesting. If someone suddenly stole a kiss from you, how would you react?]
Bai Qingquan: [It depends on who the person is and whether you like it or not. If you like it, don’t stress about it. If you don’t, of course you can slap him or kick him. Why are you asking such an obvious question?]
Shen Jintai: [What if you like it a little bit, but you didn’t expect the other party to kiss you?]
Bai Qingquan: [Then be clear. Of course, you have to be clear about this kind of thing. If someone kisses you and you don’t object, it basically confirms the relationship by default. Otherwise, how can you accept a kiss but still think that you two aren’t in love? Isn’t that strange? Why are you asking… Wait. Is it… President Yan kissed you?]
Shen Jintai was taken aback, thinking about how Bai Qingquan could be so smart.
[If he had dared to kiss me, I would have kicked him a long time ago! Alright, I’m sleepy, so I’m not talking to you anymore.]
Shen Jintai put down the phone and got up from the bed. Sure enough, his thoughts weren’t wrong. If such a thing happened, he needed to make it clear to Yan Qiuchi. After making up his mind, Shen Jintai got dressed and went out.
He walked to the door of Yan Qiuchi’s room and knocked on the door a few times. He waited there for a few minutes, but no one answered. He knocked a few more times, but still there wasn’t any answer.
Not in his room?
Shen Jintai took out his phone and called Yan Qiuchi. As the phone was ringing, his heart was pounding a mile a minute, as if it were a sign that he was afraid to talk to Yan Qiuchi. The phone kept ringing with no answer.
Is he deliberately avoiding me?
This matter needed to be made clear, and the longer it dragged on, the scummier it would feel.
Shen Jintai stood in the corridor for a while, then directly opened the door to Yan Qiuchi’s room and entered. Yan Qiuchi’s room was very large. He walked through the living room to his bedroom and found that there was no one on the bed, but there were a few clothes on the chair.
Shen Jintai was taken aback when he noticed that the bathroom door was opened. He quickly turned around and saw… A naked Yan Qiuchi.
Yan Qiuchi probably didn’t expect him to appear in his room as the two locked gaze staring blankly at each other. All Shen Jintai could see was an incredibly perfect, tall male figure that was buff and strong.
Yan Qiuchi was drying his hair and quickly covered himself with a towel. Shen Jintai flushed and said, “Show… You were taking a shower.”
He still remembered the embarrassed state that he had been in shortly before, so he was better mentally prepared as he stabilized his mind. “Put on your clothes. I have something I want to talk to you about.”
Yan Qiuchi’s complexion turned red as he replied with a faint “Nn” and quickly walked into the cloakroom.
Shen Jintai felt his heart was about to jump out of his throat.
Oh Lord, what did he see! It turns out that everything that was written was true!
At this point, he had completely given up. He had fallen for Yan Qiuchi. Yan Qiuchi had both the heart and the ability!
This time, he was completely sober. He could honestly be his 1, but Yan Qiuchi being a 0 was such a waste. But being Yan Qiuchi’s 0 was not something that a mere mortal like him can could take!
Shen Jintai quickly calmed down. After he steadied himself, many things became clear. Yan Qiuchi was a special existence to him, but his fans didn’t like him. If he fell for Yan Qiuchi, his career would face a crisis. He was a person who always put his career first. Love to him was just icing on the cake in life. If love affected his career and disappointed the expectations of his fans, this was not the life that he wanted.
Perhaps he had unconsciously and unknowingly become attracted to Yan Qiuchi because he had treated him so well.
Yan Qiuchi got dressed and came out of the closet. His face was still red.
“I knocked on the door and called just now, but no one answered,” Shen Jintai said. “I didn’t realize you were taking a shower. Sorry to bother you.”
“It’s okay,” Yan Qiuchi said. “Sit down. Want something to drink?”
Shen Jintai: “No need. Let’s sit and talk.”
Shen Jintai sat down on the sofa first. When he faced Yan Qiuchi, all the embarrassment just now had resurfaced again, turning his face beet red. Seeing his flushed face, Yan Qiuchi also became embarrassed. The mood was awkward, with hints of ambiguity and shyness.
“I think what happened just now… I mean, when you were by the door to my room…” Shen Jintai took a deep breath, sat up straight, looked directly at Yan Qiuchi, and said, “I think it’s better for me to make it clear to you.”
Yan Qiuchi’s expression calmed down as he looked at him.
Shen Jintai: “I think perhaps it’s because of me, and I’m not expressing myself clearly enough, but I think it’s better for the two of us to be friends. In the future… don’t do that.”
Yan Qiuchi’s heart suddenly sank as he looked at Shen Jintai solemnly.
Shen Jintai rubbed his knees as he said, “I think kissing… is something that only lovers should do. If I don’t make it clear to you, I feel like it would mean that I’m in love with you by default… Do you get what I mean?” He looked up at Yan Qiuchi.
“Were you disgusted when I kissed you?” Yan Qiuchi asked.
Shen Jintai was taken aback. He didn’t expect Yan Qiuchi to ask such a heavy question. He quickly waved his hand. “No, no, no. Don’t think too much into it.”
Yan Qiuchi: “Then how do you feel?”
Embarrassment shot through Shen Jintai again as he curled his fingers slightly and gave an awkward laugh.
How I feel…
Shen Jintai: “To be honest… It all happened too fast… so I felt… nothing…” He instantly regretted saying this. He vigilantly looked at Yan Qiuchi, who kept staring at him, causing his heart to flutter.
Shen Jintai stood up and prepared to leave.
“Don’t you want to be clear?” Yan Qiuchi said. “It’s better to make things clear, so we should do it again.”
Shen Jintai roared inwardly, ‘I fucking regret this!!!’
The embarrassment refuses to leave him, as all rational thought was thrown out the window, putting him in a state of confusion. He had never been like this before. Why did he always drop the ball at such a critical moment whenever he faced Yan Qiuchi?
“Did you like it? Or did you think it was too fast? You said you weren’t prepared?” Yan Qiuchi asked. “Be honest. Don’t lie.”
Fuck. Shen Jintai’s leg became weak, and his heart was pounding like crazy. His brain was going in circles.
“It was too fast.” Shen Jintai was honest. “I wasn’t prepared for it.”
“I see,” Yan Qiuchi said. Shen Jintai immediately turned his head when he heard the words. “Then let’s truthfully find out? If it was too fast, then I’ll be slower next time.”
Fucking hell. This domineering president! Are you fucking kidding me?!
Shen Jintai had completely forgotten his original intention for coming. He only spoke gibberish. “No… I really can’t. I…”
He has both the heart and the ability.
Huh? Why did he feel like this was the start of some yellow text?
Shen Jintai wanted to quickly slip away.
Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. He had just hit the wall*!
*Refers to your perception being blurred causing you to go around in circles. A state of hazy consciousness. In this case, he’s basically extremely confused and lost.

A man was rejected because he was big? *Dies of laughter*
