The black car drove slowly into the iron gate of the villa and stopped at the garage door.

Ji Juechuan looked at the mobile phone whose screen was lit up, and was showing a video just sent by Lu Ji, followed by a message:

“Boss, take a look.”

Ji Juechuan ignored that sentence.

He just wanted to know what Yan Yan said and did in the live broadcast room, whether he had revealed his true nature, and whether it had the highest quality or not.

Clicking on the video, a picture of Yan Yan sitting on the sofa holding water appeared on the screen. He looked at the phone and was taken aback for a moment, then frowned slightly.

Ji Juechuan remembered that Lu Ji said that people were cursing Yan Yan when he saw the barrage in the live broadcast room, and it should be about this time.

The boy on the screen didn’t say a word for a while, just stared at the screen until a long bullet screen appeared, and the boy finally reacted.

Behind it was the poem reading clip that the barrage kept mentioning. Yan Yan’s voice came from the phone very clearly, with a small electric sound, which made people’s ears numb.

Because there was no radio equipment, Yan Yan’s voice sounded a little far away, but it had a hazy beauty.

After listening, Ji Juechuan had a strange idea inexplicably in his mind.

If Yan Yan could read this poem in front of him, it would definitely sound better.

He pursed his lips, suppressed the thought, and then watched the content behind the video.

In the video, Yan Yan had already started answering the barrage questions. When he spoke, his voice was soft, which was a little different from his voice when reading poems.

Before answering a question, he would think carefully for a long time, and then look at the camera with those crystal eyes, and answer without haste.

Hearing Yan Yan say that the live broadcast time was the morning of weekdays, and there was no live broadcast on weekends, Ji Juechuan subconsciously frowned.

On weekday mornings, wasn’t that when he was not at home?

Obviously, the traffic would be even greater on weekends, but Yan Yan chose to broadcast live when the traffic was the least. The only possibility was to avoid him.

Ji Juechuan frowned even deeper, Yan Yan’s live broadcast was no secret, why did he only keep it from him?

This must be Yan Yan’s plan.

He was frowning and watching the video when the car window was knocked.

As if guilty of something, Ji Juechuan’s first reaction was to turn off the video, and only after putting away his phone did he realize that the windows of his car were closed, and people outside could not see inside.

He turned his head and saw the person in the video just now standing outside the window with his head tilted slightly, as if he wanted to see if there was anyone in the car.

Ji Juechuan watched Yan Yan’s even more delicate and beautiful face off-screen through the glass, and slowly rolled down the window just when Yan Yan thought that no one was in the car and was turning around to leave.

Yan Yan paused, and immediately went back to the car window, then opening and closing his soft and bright red lips, he said, “Husband, you are back.”

Even though Yan Yan had called him this way several times, Ji Juechuan was still not used to this address, so it was hard to say he was bored, but every time he heard it, his heart felt like it was being swept away by a feather.

An itchy, hard-to-grasp feeling.

“Yeah.” Ji Juechuan responded flatly, “I’ll park the car, you go in first.”

“I’ll wait for you to go in together.” Yan Yan stood still, his beautiful eyes slightly bent under his long eyelashes.

Ji Juechuan pursed his lower lip, did not refuse, and drove the car into the garage.

When he came out of the garage, Yan Yan immediately ran to his side and took his hand hanging by his side.

Like a squeamish kitten waiting for its owner to come home.

If he hadn’t known that he was broadcasting live all morning, Ji Juechuan would really have thought that he had been waiting for him at home all day, waiting for him to come back.

He let the soft white hand hold his, and then pretended to ask casually: “What did you do at home today?”

“Nothing, I’ve been waiting for you to come home.” Yan Yan blinked a few times, the voice was soft, and there was no flaw in the expression on his face.

Ji Juechuan paused, although he had guessed that Yan Yan would not tell him the truth, he was still a little unhappy.

He kept calling him husband, but he kept this little thing from him. Since he didn’t regard him as his husband, why did he act like he liked him all day long.

Then he frowned again. What husband and not a husband, what was he thinking.

He and Yan Yan were originally arranged to be married by their elders, wasn’t it normal to have secrets between each other?

After self-explaining, the unhappiness in Ji Juechuan’s heart did not disappear, but he became even more irritable.

Yan Yan didn’t know what he was thinking. Seeing his face sinking, he thought he hated him sticking beside him, so he immediately hooked the corners of his lips and held Ji Juechuan’s hand even tighter.

When the two walked into the dining room, Aunt Zhang was serving dishes on the table. She saw them walking in holding hands, with a smile on her face:

“Xiao Ji, why did you come back so early today? Yan Yan just said that he saw your car, and went out to pick you up, I thought he was mistaken.”

Ji Juechuan glanced at Yan Yan, not much happy because of Aunt Zhang’s words, and snorted “pretentious” in his heart.

The three sat down at the dining table.

Aunt Zhang didn’t notice Ji Juechuan’s mood, and she scooped a spoonful of crucian carp soup into Yan Yan’s bowl, “Try the crucian carp soup made by Aunt Zhang, the fish is so fresh and tender.”

Ji Juechuan glanced at the crucian carp in the bowl, and remembered how last time, Yan Yan disliked the fishbones with a coquettish appearance, so he didn’t make a sound, but just looked at Yan Yan’s reaction with a cold eye.

He saw Yan Yan pick up the soup bowl and take the spoonful of crucian carp soup, thank Aunt Zhang with a smile and crooked eyes, then drink the soup gracefully, taking only one bite of the fish.

Really squeamish.

Ji Juechuan looked down at Yan Yan’s slender and fair wrist, and then looked away.

None of his business.

In the middle of dinner, Yan Yan’s cell phone rang suddenly. He was taken aback for a moment and took out the cell phone from his pocket in some surprise.

You must know that in the past few days he had been here, no one had ever sent him a message. Mrs. Yan always called him directly, so the person who sent the message must not be Mrs. Yan.

Not noticing Ji Juechuan’s vaguely watchful eyes, Yan Yan turned on the phone and found that it was a WeChat message.

The content of that WeChat message was a bit confusing.

“Are you coming back to live stream?”

Yan Yan glanced at the top of the chat box, and the person’s note was “Live Stream – Father Luo”.

He thought for a while, replied with “um”, and put the phone back in his pocket.

Aunt Zhang smiled and gave him another dish with her chopsticks: “Was it Yan Yan’s friend? I think you’ve been staying at home today, so don’t get bored. It’s good to go out with your friends.”

Ji Juechuan didn’t move but he glanced in Yan Yan’s direction sternly.

Yan Yan didn’t know the relationship between that person and the original owner, so he nodded vaguely: “It’s a friend.”

The person mentioned the live broadcast, which reminded Yan Yan that he had made an appointment with his fans to show them bartending in the next live broadcast.

But he didn’t have the materials and props for bartending yet, but fortunately, tomorrow was the weekend, so he still had time to go to the mall to buy them.

Then he remembered that he was broke now and that he had no money to buy bartending supplies.

Although someone tipped a gift in today’s live broadcast, the website did not allow cash withdrawals because the amount was less than one hundred.

The more Yan Yan thought about it, the more distressed he became, biting the spoon subconsciously, his delicate eyebrows were slightly furrowed and he was obviously distracted.

Seeing that he had been absent-minded since receiving the text message, Ji Juechuan’s face turned a little cold, and his mood became more and more bad.


Hearing this, Ji Juechuan paused and raised his eyes to look at Yan Yan, but his face was not very good-looking.

Yan Yan bit his lower lip, and asked softly: “Isn’t tomorrow the weekend, will you accompany me to the mall?”

Facing such a cautious request from a beauty, no normal person would refuse.

But Ji Juechuan was abnormal, “I’m not free.”

After a pause, he said, “I’ll give you a card later, and you can use the money in it as you like.”

He naturally thought that Yan Yan had asked him to accompany him to the mall in order to use his money, it so happened that he was in a bad mood right now, so he refused without thinking.

But Yan Yan had already made an engagement with him, so he naturally wouldn’t be harsh on him in terms of money, so he wanted to give him the card directly.

Yan Yan’s eyebrows drooped, his mouth flattened, and he pulled his cuff again: “But I want you to accompany me.”

He didn’t want Ji Juechuan’s card. He could already make a little money by live broadcasting now, as long as he broadcasted a few more times, he would be able to withdraw the money for fans’ gift rewards in just one time.

If Ji Juechuan’s card was taken, it would make things unclear after the marriage contract was cancelled. Maybe Ji Juechuan would feel that he had been using his money, so he would not give him  the huge compensation mentioned in the novel.

Ji Juechuan looked down at Yan Yan’s hand holding his cuff and remembered that he was hiding the live broadcast from him, and how he was absent-minded thinking about others just now, so he gently pulled his sleeve out of Yan Yan’s hand.

“I’m really not free.”

Seeing Yan Yan’s disappointed look, Aunt Zhang quickly comforted him: “What does Yan Yan want to buy? Aunt Zhang will accompany you, okay?”

Just after finishing speaking, she patted herself on the forehead again, with a tone of voice filled with some regret: “Look at my memory, I’m going back to my hometown tomorrow, and I won’t be back until next week.”

Yan Yan didn’t intend to ask Aunt Zhang to accompany him, but just as he was about to shake his head and say “it’s okay”, he heard Aunt Zhang speak again.

“Hey, wasn’t that friend of yours still sending you messages just now? Why don’t you let that friend go with you?” After finishing speaking, she was worried that the couple would be at odds because of this incident, so she helped Ji Juechuan say a few words and said, “Xiao Ji is really busy at work. He often works overtime at the company on weekends. He has no choice so don’t take it to heart.”

Hearing this sentence, Yan Yan suddenly thought that he could borrow money from the person who sent the message just now, and his brows and eyes were no longer drooping. He just nodded when he heard Ji Juechuan speak suddenly, his face a little smelly.

“It just so happens that I have something to buy, and I’ll go with you tomorrow.”
