Zhai Xingchen was startled.
Then he asked softly, “Are you okay?”
Pei Xu stared at him for a while, then shook his head.
Yan Zhi came over, and Huo Cheng and the others also looked over here.
“What happened to Pei Xu?” Lin Qingning asked.
“He seems to have drunk too much.” Zhai Xingchen said.
Everyone laughed and stood up, Yan Zhi smiled and patted Pei Xu on the shoulder, Pei Xu sat up straight again, looked at everyone with a blank face, his neck having turned red.
Really drank too much.
Huo Cheng got up and helped Pei Xu to his bedroom, and then everyone got up and started clearing the dining table.
“I didn’t expect Pei Xu to drink so badly.” Duan Yihua said, “He drank the least out of us, right?”
“He seemed to have only had two glasses, and the rest was plain water,” Wen Nuo said.
Everyone laughed together, and Zhai Xingchen went to make him hangover soup.
“Let me cook a little more, everyone drink some.”
“It’s a good thing we don’t have to get up early tomorrow.” Hu Ying touched his face and said, “It will definitely be swollen tomorrow.”
“Did Xingchen drink the most today?”
Duan Yihua said, “Brother Huo was talking there, he drank several cups by himself.”
“That’s right, I can’t see that you are a huge person at all.” Hu Ying said.
Wen Nuo sent a copy of the flowers that were to be shared to each room. It was still raining outside, Duan Yihua and Hu Ying chatted for a while on the sofa in the living room before getting up.
Everyone went to see him in Pei Xu’s room one after another. After he was drunk, Pei Xu was very quiet and slept soundly. Everyone went there in turn without waking him up.
After drinking the soup made by Zhai Xingchen, everyone went back to their rooms to wash up. After Zhai Xingchen took a shower, he went to Pei Xu’s room to take a look at him. He didn’t even turn over, and his sleeping appearance was super good.
Zhai Xingchen had just put the water glass on his bedside, when he heard someone knock on the door lightly.
He looked back and saw that it was Yan Zhi.
“Come out, let me tell you something.”
He got up and walked out, closed the door and asked, “What’s the matter?”
“Didn’t I say that I wanted to introduce my cousin to you? When I met her, I told her about it, she wants to have dinner with everyone tomorrow. Do you think you have time?”
Zhai Xingchen was stunned for a moment, he didn’t expect the dinner to come so soon.
He nodded and said, “Okay.”
“What about lunch or dinner?”
“Dinner, I happen to be going to school in the afternoon.”
Yan Zhi nodded, and then glanced into Pei Xu’s room through the crack of the door: “I didn’t expect Pei Xu to drink so badly.”
He stretched out his hand and closed the door, and said, “Then I’m leaving. See you tomorrow.”
Zhai Xingchen returned to his room and saw that it was still raining outside. Since it was raining, he opened the windows.
They had two text messages at one stop, on the first day and the seventh day. Today, there was no text message task, and so he was happy and at ease. Zhai Xingchen even went to read the book.
He also drank a lot of wine today, and it was raining as well, so he became sleepy after watching it for a while. He got up and warmed up, put one leg on the bed, and did a leg split easily.
Suddenly there were two “dang dang” sounds outside, and as soon as he exerted force on his waist and abdomen, his legs were retracted, and he stood up straight in the next second.
This scene directly stunned the program crew.
“How did he stand up just now? Wasn’t he doing the splits?”
“This flexibility is too good.”
“It’s not about flexibility, it’s about the waist.”
“It feels like some automatic lift is installed on his body.”
Zhai Xingchen breathed out: “Come in.”
Huo Cheng pushed the door open and entered.
Before the person came in, Huo Cheng laughed first. The drunken face made him look even more naughty, and he leaned behind the door with a wicked smile.
“Did you drink too much?” Zhai Xingchen asked with a smile.
Huo Cheng said: “With this little wine, can I get drunk?”
Zhai Xingchen said: “I think you are too drunk.”
Zhai Xingchen supported him: “Sit.”
Huo Cheng sat down on the chair, took a deep breath, and said, “Your room smells so good.”
Zhai Xingchen asked, “Do you want to drink water?”
Huo Cheng said: “You don’t have to work, you sit down.”
Zhai Xingchen sat down on the bed and looked at Huo Cheng.
His eyes were open and clear, and the wine color on his face had receded, with black eyes and white glowing face, Huo Cheng looked at him for a while, then looked away, reached out and took the bottle that Zhai Xingchen had drunk from previously: “I’d better drink some water.”
“I drank from it, I’ll get you a new one.”
“I don’t mind it.” Huo Cheng said as he unscrewed the cap, and took several gulps. After finishing the drink, he put his elbows on the desk and picked up the books placed on it.
Because the window was open, the sound of rain in the room was very loud, Huo Cheng flipped through the book and didn’t speak.
When Zhai Xingchen was about to speak, he heard Huo Cheng say, “I drank a lot of wine today and now feel like talking.”
“Then let’s talk.” Zhai Xingchen said with a smile.
Huo Cheng turned his head to look at Zhai Xingchen. Seeing that Zhai Xingchen’s eyes were still so open, he bit his lip with an aggressive expression, and then scratched his forehead again.
“We’ve been here for two days. Among the guests, do you like anyone?”
He actually came to talk to him about it.
Zhai Xingchen smiled and said, “Can we talk about this?”
“We want to chat. It’s just the two of us.” Huo Cheng said, “Why don’t I turn off the camera and everything?”
There was a faint feeling in the room. The smell of alcohol was brought by Huo Cheng.
It seemed that Huo Cheng drank too much today. He discovered that Huo Cheng talked a lot when he drank.
This big brother was actually quite interesting.
Zhai Xingchen saw that the other party was too drunk, and felt that there was no need for him to hide all the time, so he said, “Actually, two days is too short. If you want to say that you like someone so quickly, that’s unrealistic.”
“There are two kinds of things, one is that you didn’t like anyone at the beginning, and you have a feeling for them after a long time, and the other is that you have a good impression from the beginning, and it has nothing to do with the length of time.”
Huo Cheng paused for a while, and suddenly he smiled, “But you like Brother Duan, I’m really surprised.”
Zhai Xingchen was stunned for a moment, then laughed.
“There are eight of us, he is the oldest, you are the youngest, he is ten years older than you.” Huo Cheng stared at him for a while, his eyes were dark, “Xingchen likes people who are older than him, right?”
“But brother Duan is not interested in me.” Zhai Xingchen was very afraid that Huo Cheng would stop contacting Duan Yihua because of his loyalty. Huo Cheng was very similar to that kind of man.
So he said, “He doesn’t seem to like people who are too much younger than him.”
Huo Cheng bit his lower lip again, raised his chin slightly, looked at him with downcast eyes, and took out a cigarette and a lighter from his pocket.
“Can I smoke?”
Zhai Xingchen nodded: “But the program team may delete the picture and will not broadcast it.”
“It would be better not to broadcast it.”
Huo Cheng cleared his throat and lit a cigarette.
He looked attractive while smoking, or rather it suited him, and after a few puffs, he went to the window and reached out to flick the ash.
The wind blew the smell of smoke over, and Zhai Xingchen walked up to Huo Cheng and stood still, and said, “Does it make you feel more depressed after drinking alcohol? Everyone is the same, it’s like this after drinking alcohol.”
“Pei Xu, Yan Zhi, Brother Duan, they can’t talk, they can’t please people, and they don’t understand romance, look at me, no matter how successful I am now, I’m still a poor boy who can’t get up to the top.”
Huo Cheng had really changed. A person who was so cheerful on weekdays had become sombre, as if he had deep thoughts hidden.
“If you’re asking for my opinion…” Zhai Xingchen lowered his voice, not wanting to be recorded by the program crew, “I think it’s OK if you go on the show just for traffic, exposure, etc. Then you should try your best to pack yourself and show your good side. If you really like someone and want to be with him, then you have to be yourself. It doesn’t matter if you can’t talk or not understand romance. The other person can see your sincerity. If they can’t see it, or if they see it and don’t respond, it means there is no fate, and there is nothing to regret. In fact, emotional matters are very strange. Sometimes the person you really fall in love with may be the same as what you expected before or completely different. And didn’t you just say that there are two kinds of feelings, one is love at first sight, and the other is long-term love, so how can long-term love depend on your good performance and hard work this month?”
Huo Cheng just laughed and said: “Love grows after a long time.”
Zhai Xingchen wanted to liven up the atmosphere and joked: “Don’t speak in a yellow accent.”
Huo Cheng said: “I don’t speak yellow accent, I really miss the sun.”
Zhai Xingchen laughed. Huo Cheng turned his head to look at him, and lay down on the window with a cigarette between his hands.
Zhai Xingchen saw that the rain was falling on Huo Cheng’s face.
“It’s good to have rain pour on the fire.” Huo Cheng said.
Was this a bit like the male lead?
This fucking belongs to Haitang’s family, right?
After talking, Huo Cheng’s mood seemed to be a lot higher, and the two chatted about other things, and finally they talked about the topic they were talking about at the dinner table.
Huo Cheng smoked several cigarettes in a row: “Look, I’m addicted to cigarettes now. I didn’t know how to smoke in the first place. At that time, although someone sponsored me, I had to save a lot. How could I smoke? I learned it when I started my business. There is no way, while doing business, everyone smokes and drinks, and if you don’t smoke or drink, you can’t get involved at all. When I first started my business, I couldn’t drink alcohol. Once I met a client who said that he looked down on me, and then took out a stack of documents, spread it on the wine table, put a glass of wine on a document, such a big glass, white, say, if you can drink this, I will sign one for you. I wanted to say, damn, as long as you are willing to sign, don’t talk about a glass of wine, even a bottle of wine, I will do it, I picked up the glass and drank it, drank wildly, until the end of the drink, the other party was afraid, stopped me from drinking, and signed all the documents for me.”
Huo Cheng talked about the past, and Zhai Xingchen felt sympathetic when he heard it, so he asked, “What happened next?”
“After it was signed?”
“I, I was hospitalized.” Huo Cheng said, and he laughed, “Speaking of this, it was even worse. At that time, I didn’t dare to tell my family when I was hospitalized, so I just carried it by myself, and he didn’t say that it was over after one round of drinking, and I had to drink later, otherwise wouldn’t I just have drunk in vain before? My stomach hurt, and I couldn’t eat, so I smoked, I smoked like crazy.”
He turned his head to look at Zhai Xingchen, and there seemed to be tears in Zhai Xingchen’s eyes.
He was stunned for a moment, and suddenly he was stabbed in the heart by the seemingly invisible tears.
He felt that Zhai Xingchen felt sorry for him.
He stuck out his tongue and pressed his cheek: “It’s all good now.”
Zhai Xingchen smiled, a little sad: “Yes, you see, the days are getting better and better, and you will be better in the future.”
The male lead of Dianjia will become a real boss in less than a year and a half. These hard days will never happen again.
“Really.” He emphasized again, “If you don’t believe me, let’s make a bet. If it’s not good, you come find me.”
Huo Cheng pinched his cigarette and said, “Okay, if it’s not good, I will ask you to take responsibility.”
Zhai Xingchen sighed and smiled.
Huo Cheng looked at him quietly, and said, “Zhai Xingchen.”
“It’s a name that people will never forget once they hear it.” Huo Cheng said.
