Chapter 25- The Second Blind Date
Zhou Wenbin and Zhang Ning got out of the car. The two looked at Qin Lu, to the person next to him, and then looked at each other as if they didn’t understand why he agreed to get out of the car. It was his RV.
Qin Lu looked at the RV with the door half-pulled. From his angle, he could see the looming figure of the young man. The lights were on in the car, and through the gap in the door, it seemed like a beam of light had fallen on the young man.
He looked calm.
“Let’s talk.” Cheng Qinghua originally wanted Jiang Liu Cheng to chat with him outside, but there were too many crew members, and Qin Lu’s RV was the safest. In there, there was no need to worry that someone would overhear and discover their relationship.
Jiang Liu Cheng nodded cooperatively, “Okay.”
Jiang Liu Cheng looked so refreshing, but Cheng Qinghua was a little anxious at the moment. “I think we can discuss the matters in our relationship again. A questionnaire can’t explain our differences thoroughly. Meanwhile, many problems can be solved by talking about them. What do you think? “
Jiang Liu Cheng nodded again, “You are right.”
Cheng Qinghua only felt that he was too cooperative and involuntarily changed his sitting position, “Then, do you mean that our relationship can continue?”
Jiang Liu Cheng looked at him; his eyes were very transparent. This made Cheng Qinghua more anxious as if he had a feeling that Jiang Liu Cheng could see through him.
“Director Cheng, you only need to answer one question. Do you want to fall in love with me or get married?”
Cheng Qinghua hesitated for a second, “First of all, the purpose of this is to fall in love. As for marriage, the gay marriage law has not been passed in China. Even if we get married, it is unlikely not to be exposed. If you have to take the path of the entertainment industry in the future, hidden marriage would be more suitable.”
Jiang Liu Cheng: “If I want to expose it…”
Cheng Qinghua: “… your career will definitely be affected.”
Jiang Liu Cheng: “That is to say, you won’t openly fall in love or get married until your career is stabilized.”
When he said this, there was nothing strange on his face. He looks at peace as if he is just discussing an ordinary topic.
Cheng Qinghua hesitated for two seconds, “Homosexuality is difficult to be accepted by the public unless it is abroad.”
“I understand.” Jiang Liu Cheng already knew his answer, “This is as I said before, we are not suitable.”
Cheng Qinghua’s breathing stagnated.
Jiang Liu Cheng continued, “Director Cheng, career is not important to me. What I value more is family. If I had to choose between the two, I would choose the latter without hesitation.”
Cheng Qinghua was silent for a moment, then he suddenly believed Qin Lu’s love brain statement, “You really don’t care about your career. Your appearance is great; it’s just that you lack opportunities. As long as you are given a chance, it is entirely possible for you to become someone like Wang Ye or Han Qidong, people like that.”
The former is the top performer in the entertainment industry, with tens of millions of fans, while the latter is a movie star in the entertainment industry, and his acting skills are also recognized.
Jiang Liu Cheng: “So we may not be the same.”
Hearing this sentence, Cheng Qinghua did not refute anymore, he had already realized this.
Jiang Liu Cheng continued, “As you said if I really want to do something, no one can stop me.”
Conversely, when he doesn’t want to do something, no one else can stop him.
The car door opened again, and Cheng Qinghua came out from the inside. The expression on his face was no longer so unwilling, but the grim mood could not help but reflect on his face.
Seeing his appearance, Qin Lu was not surprised.

Cheng Qinghua nodded with a sad face. He wanted to light a cigarette now. “You are right; we are really not suitable for each other. Our ambitions are different. He has the appearance of a popular idol, but he only wants to get married. I can’t understand it. He still has to take the road of the entertainment industry now, but he thinks about it too simply.”
Qin Lu said calmly, “Just because you don’t understand it doesn’t mean his decision is unreasonable. You just don’t understand some things.”
Since he knew that Jiang Liu Cheng’s parents had divorced early, he probably understood a little why the other party kept going on blind dates.
Cheng Qinghua complained, “If you know so well, why don’t you tell me? Aren’t you supposed to be a competent matchmaker?”
Qin Lu glanced at him, “I only learned about it during the time we spent together.”
Cheng Qinghua shut up as soon as he heard it. Jiang Liu Cheng has been in the crew all this time. If he wanted to know more, he would have known it long ago.
Qin Lu’s words just proved that although he likes Jiang Liu Cheng and occasionally does some caring actions, he never took the initiative to get to know him, and he always used the reason of being busy.
Cheng Qinghua couldn’t hold back this time and lit a cigarette, “I now know what the problem is between us. Having said that, I still like him very much.”
Before Qin Lu could speak, Jiang Liu Cheng also got out of the vehicle and called Cheng Qinghua to stop.
“Director Cheng, I don’t have scenes for next week. I want to take two days off.”
Cheng Qinghua still had a little anticipation when he heard him stop him. He thought maybe he had changed his mind. He didn’t expect that Jiang Liu Cheng would ask for leave and immediately thought of Qin Lu saying he would take him on a blind date next week.
“You guys are going too far. Take into account the mood of a person who you just broke up with.”
A question mark appeared on Jiang Liu Cheng’s head, “So I can’t?”
Cheng Qinghua: “Strictly speaking, if you don’t have a role in those two days, you don’t need to ask me for leave. Just say it.”
Jiang Liu Cheng: “Okay, I’m telling you now.”
Cheng Qinghua: “…..”
Seeing that Cheng Qinghua was a little bit beaten as he left, Zhou Wenbin silently sympathized with him in his heart, but only for a moment.
Even an outsider like him could see that Director Cheng Qinghua and Jiang Liu Cheng were indeed not suitable for each other.
If you want to ask him why it probably started from the incompatibility of their physical feature.
Qin Lu looked at Jiang Liu Cheng and said, “It only takes one day for a blind date. You don’t need to take two days off.”
Jiang Liu Cheng nodded, “I know, but my agent helped me negotiate an endorsement. They asked me to shoot an advertisement next week.”
Qin Lu heard the words and said nothing.
Zhou Wenbin, who was on the side, was surprised, “You are not famous yet, but a company asked you to make an advertisement for their endorsement? Don’t be deceived.”
Jiang Liu Cheng said the name of the company, “My agent confirmed it and said it was not a lie.”
Zhou Wenbin raised his eyebrows, “If that’s the company, it is indeed possible. This is a very old food company. They rarely invite big-name celebrities to shoot advertisements, but I heard that this company is about to close down.”
Jiang Liu Cheng didn’t know much about this. “That’s a pity. The food quality of this company is good. I have eaten their potato chips before.”
Qin Lu is not interested in snacks and rarely eats them, but he still asks, “Why did it go out of business?”
Zhou Wenbin said, “It is said that this company spends all its money on research and development, so it doesn’t do much promotion. Plus, there are cheaper alternatives for its products. If they can’t seize back the market, they will make less and less money. It’s a matter of time before it goes bankrupt.”
Qin Lu nodded.
Yieeee 2nd blind date here we goooo 😆 looking forward to the 2nd gen lmao will he shower mc with material sht? How will their time together go OwO
Awww Company going kaput is sad ( ◞ ‸ ◟) especially if they work hard on their products. Expensive but worth it. But it would be hard for daily consumption / fast cash flow from the common people 🤔 How would the company survive I wonder. Bars and restaus serving them? Airplanes? Company giveaways? Hrmm
