Chapter 41- Start With The Skin First
Zhou Beiwang did make an appointment with Jiang Liucheng to pick him up for dinner, but unexpectedly received a phone call from his family and was informed that his grandmother was in the hospital, so he hurried to the hospital.
To his surprise, Gu Qing was actually there.
From his family, he learned that Gu Qing went to see his grandma today. It happened that his grandma was unwell, so Gu Qing helped to make a phone call, and together with the housekeeper, he took grandma to the hospital.
Zhou Beiwang had no choice but to call Jiang Liucheng and tell him that he would not be able to go for the time being.
Jiang Liucheng on the other end of the phone expressed his understanding but rejected his proposal to let Dou Binbin pick him up. The more reasonable he was, the more guilty Zhou Beiwang felt. He had promised to do it, but he couldn’t get there because of an accident, so he immediately promised that he will definitely make it up for him.
“Beiwang, grandma told you to come over.”
Zhou Beiwang looked back and saw that Gu Qing was standing behind him at some point, and he hung up the phone after talking to Jiang Liucheng.
“Thank you for today’s matter.” Although he knew that even if Gu Qing didn’t go, the housekeeper who had been with his grandmother would soon find out. Nonetheless, Zhou Beiwang thanked him anyway.
Gu Qing smiled and said, “Thank you. I have been away from China for several years, but in my heart, I have always regarded Grandma Zhou as my own grandmother. But if you really want to thank me, how about inviting me to dinner? “
Zhou Beiwang agreed, “Then I will invite you to dinner next time.”
Gu Qing said, “What are you waiting for? Next time? I think it’s better to hit the sun if you choose another day. Treat me to dinner tonight.”
Zhou Beiwang hesitated.
After returning to the ward, his grandma also asked him to thank Gu Qing, and Gu Qing took advantage of the situation to ask Zhou Beiwang to invite him to dinner, and his grandma immediately agreed. In the end, Zhou Beiwang had no choice but to ask Gu Qing to go out to eat.
On the other hand, Jiang Liucheng, who rejected Zhou Beiwang’s proposal, stopped a car by himself, invited Li Lei to eat at a roadside stall, and then went home.
“Why did you come back so early today, didn’t you say that you have an appointment with your blind date tonight?”
Guo Qifan was surprised when he saw him coming back before eight o’clock. Even if he didn’t go to the movies after dinner, he could find a place to take a walk and chat for a while.
“Something happened to his house. It seems that his grandma was hospitalized, so he couldn’t come.” Jiang Liucheng threw the key on the table by the door and went to the toilet to wash his face.
“Oh, then there is no way.” Guo Qifan said, unexpectedly Jiang Liucheng came out after washing his face and added, “I also heard on the phone the person named Gu Qing whom I met at the art exhibition last time.”
Guo Qifan suddenly regained his energy and squatted from the chair, “No way. There is no accident in such a bloody mess, the other party should have deliberately let you hear it.”
Jiang Liucheng:: “It’s hard to say.”
Guo Qifan: “There’s nothing more to say about this. In my opinion, it’s probably the case. According to the normal routine, this episode of abuse is probably just the beginning.”
Jiang Liucheng shrugged, “I’ll take a shower first.”
Guo Qifan shared this incident with the group when he was taking a shower.
Two people who originally said they were at work bubbled up immediately.
By the time Jiang Liucheng was washed out, the group had already posted 99 new messages.
Qiao Mei: [Why do I feel that the plot development of Liucheng and this blind date of his is more and more like the overbearing president and Cinderella?]
Guo Qifan: [It will be a proper domineering CEO TV series. The CEO and his Cinderella. The second girl is a scheming female partner who matches the domineering president. On top of that, our Jiang Liucheng has a sadomasochistic relationship with the tyrant. Poor little Liucheng.]
Zheng Kailin: [Don’t insult Liucheng.]
Qiao Mei: [ Is Jiang Liucheng not the Virgin? If he commits something taboo, he will be out of the game. With the IQ of those domineering presidents on TV, I am afraid that he will change from male protagonist to cannon fodder without appearing in an episode.]
Jiang Liucheng: [I appreciate your sorries, but I don’t want to be the heroine or the hero.]
Guo Qifan: [You really can’t be the hero like this. People like you, always have the climax at the beginning. How can the director shoot dozens of episodes like that?]
Zheng Kailin: [But you can first inquire about the relationship between your blind date and this man.]
Jiang Liucheng: [Don’t worry. I will ask.]
Not long after Jiang Liucheng left the group chat, Zheng Kailin and Qiao Mei also disappeared one after another.
“The two of them are also right. You run every time, and they all leave away not long after.” Guo Qifan complained, “Especially Zheng Kailin, who leaves faster than anyone else.”
“Who told you to talk too much?” Jiang Liucheng said while opening the chat window with Qin Lu.
The above are still the few photos that Qin Lu sent him before. He didn’t understand what Qin Lu meant, and because Zhou Beiwang just called him, he didn’t reply for the time being.
Guo Qifan glanced at the people in the photo, “Wow, who are these people? They are all very beautiful. Why did Emperor Qin send you these?”
Jiang Liucheng was also thinking about this question. He didn’t know if Qin Lu had finished filming yet, so he tried to send him a message.
After a while, Qin Lu replied.
Qin Lu: [Busy today?]
Guo Qifan commented, “Why do I feel that Emperor Qin is going to say ‘why is he only replying to me now?'”
Jiang Liucheng removed his phone from Guo Qifan’s line of sight, “Are you free?”
Guo Qifan: “Yes.”
Jiang Liucheng didn’t even look at him when he heard the words.
Jiang Liucheng: [I had a script reading meeting for the new drama today. After the end, Zhou Beiwang just called me, and then something happened later. That was why I wasn’t able to reply for the time being. I just wanted to ask you something.]
Qin Lu: [What’s the matter?]
Jiang Liucheng: [Can you help me find out what is the relationship between Zhou Beiwang and a man named Gu Qing?]
Qin Lu was still a little unhappy at first, but when he saw the last sentence, his mood suddenly improved again.
Qin Lu: [Gu Qing is Zhou Beiwang’s ex. They dated for a while in high school. Later, when Gu Qing went abroad, they broke up. Gu Qing didn’t come back until two years ago. I only found out about it a few days ago. If I had known earlier, I wouldn’t have introduced him to you.]
Jiang Liucheng suddenly thought that at six o’clock, Qin Lu sent him pictures of other men for no reason.
Jiang Liucheng: [So you posted those pictures to get me to pick my next blind date?]
Qin Lu: [I promise the next one is better.]
Jiang Liucheng suddenly smiled.

Guo Qifan: “What’s the good thing to smile so sweetly all of a sudden?”
Jiang Liucheng touched his face, “What nonsense? Who is smiling sweetly now?”
Guo Qifan: “You just smiled so heartily. I’ve known you for so many years, I’ve never seen you smile like this before. Is it because I’m not good enough for you?”
After he finished speaking, he glanced at Jiang Liucheng’s phone again and found that he was still chatting with Emperor Qin.
“Also, I’m not as rich or handsome as Emperor Qin. I admit that I can’t give you the happiness you want. Only Emperor Qin can give it to you.”
Guo Qifan was talking and suddenly the blessing came to his heart that he could only cry out.
Jiang Liucheng was taken aback, “You’re so loud, do you want to yell at the neighbors?”
Guo Qifan originally said that he could not introduce him to a high-quality blind date like Qin Lu, but he suddenly got inspiration and said excitedly, “I suddenly have a wonderful idea, what do you think of Qin Lu?”
Jiang Liucheng: “He’s good.”
Guo Qifan: “What if he was to be your boyfriend? Qin Lu has a status in the entertainment industry, and he is very handsome. The most important thing is that he is a man of gratitude. You just helped him at the beginning. And in order to repay your kindness, he promised to introduce you to someone. If I were him, I would not do this thankless matchmaker job and just give you a sum of money.”
Jiang Liucheng nodded, “So what?”
Guo Qifan: “Why don’t you understand? You have a blind date with other men. Why can’t you have a blind date with Qin Lu? He seems to be still single, right?”
Jiang Liucheng was a little stunned. He really never thought about this question, but he quickly reacted, “Even if he is single, he has to have that intention himself.”
Guo Qifan: “Then what you mean is that if Emperor Qin has that intention, you will agree?”
Jiang Liucheng touched his chin, “It’s not impossible.”
Guo Qifan smiled wickedly, “When you say that, I’m suddenly looking forward to it. Or maybe I’ll find a chance to ask Qin Lu if he wants to fall in love with you.”
Jiang Liucheng saw that the chat interface was still stuck on Qin Lu’s promise that the next one would be better. Thinking back to the time he spent with him in the Paradise crew, he thought about it carefully, that feeling was a bit different from getting along with Cheng Qinghua and Zhou Beiwang. No, it seems easier.
However, he felt that the reason why he felt more relaxed was because he regarded Qin Lu as a friend. After all, friends and blind date objects were different. If the latter became a lifetime, he would naturally have more things to consider.
“Don’t expect it, it shouldn’t be possible for me and Qin Lu.”
Guo Qifan shrugged, “That’s not necessary. Who knows what will happen in the future, maybe one day fate will come.”
Jiang Liucheng’s mobile phone beeps for a new message again.
Qin Lu’s failed experience with the first two matches made him decide to let Jiang Liucheng choose this time. He starts with the skin, which one is pleasing to the eye, and what kind of information Jiang Liucheng wants to know. He will ask Zhou Wenbin to organize the information and send it to Jiang Liucheng together.
Qin Lu: [You can have a few more blind dates if you want. It’s really inefficient to do them one by one, and it’s a waste of your time.]
Qin Lu: [What do you think?]
Guo Qifan saw that Jiang Liucheng had been staring at the screen of his mobile phone. His expression was a bit weird, so he leaned over again, and when he saw what Qin Lu said that there were a few more blind dates, and seeing them one by one was not efficient, he burst into laughter, “Hahaha, I think Qin Lu’s statement makes sense, but I didn’t expect Qin Lu to understand it quite well.”
Jiang Liucheng kicked him away and replied to Qin Lu.
Jiang Liucheng: [I don’t think it’s very good. This kind of blind date is like an assembly line. I do not think I will be happy even if we end up together in the future. Besides, it will make me feel like I’m choosing products instead of looking for a future partner.]
Upon seeing his reply, Qin Lu also felt that it was not very good, so he had to give up the idea.
Qin Lu: [Are you breaking up with Zhou Beiwang now?]
Jiang Liucheng: [A lot of people have exes, isn’t it normal?]
The smile on Qin Lu’s face subsided little by little. Zhang Ning, who came to deliver things, stood at the door and didn’t know whether to enter or not. He always felt that Brother Qin’s mood was unpredictable.
Just then, Qin Lu’s cell phone rang again.
In the next second, Zhang Ning found that there was another smile on Brother Qin’s face, which made him very curious as to who sent it.
Qin Lu: [picture.jpeg]
Qin Lu: [Do you want to break up with Zhou Beiwang now?]
Jiang Liucheng looked at Zhou Beiwang in the photo. Although he was the only one, this photo was posted by Gu Qing. The background was a western restaurant. Zhou Beiwang was cutting steak. Gu Qing took the photo and posted it on his Moments with the caption Someone treats guests to dinner.
Jiang Liucheng: [You have Gu Qing’s WeChat?]
Qin Lu: [I don’t, but I have connections. That’s not the point. He didn’t go to you, but he invited his ex to dinner. This kind of person is irrelevant, so should you keep him for the New Year?]
Jiang Liucheng: [I’ll test him first.]
Qin Lu: [How do you want to test him?]
Jiang Liucheng: [A blind date asked me a question before.]
Qin Lu: [What’s the question?]
Jiang Liucheng: [You’ll know when the time is right.]
Qin Lu: [Then, did you answer correctly?]
Jiang Liucheng: [I’m still on a blind date because I didn’t.]
Qin Lu was relieved.
