In the toilet, Qiao Mei, who had finished draining the water, walked to Zheng Kailin’s side and looked at him while washing his hands.
“What are you looking at?” Zheng Kailin didn’t turn his head, but he knew that Qiao Mei was looking at him.
Qiao Mei said with a smile, “I remember Zheng Kailin as calm and confident. I always thought you were the kind of person who can do everything with ease and never get stumbled or stumped by difficulties. I didn’t expect you to become so…”
Zheng Kailin frowned immediately, “What do you want to say? What have I become?”
Qiao Mei: “Don’t you know what I’m talking about?”
Zheng Kailin said, “If you don’t make it clear, how would I know what you’re talking about?”
Qiao Mei turned off the faucet. He took out a piece of tissue and wiped his hands before saying, “Yeah. Well, don’t you like Liucheng??”
Zheng Kailin stopped washing his hands, letting the water flow down between his fingers.
Qiao Mei continued, “You can only hide your thoughts from someone like Guo Qifan. I always thought that you didn’t confess because Chengzi was straight, and you were afraid that your friend wouldn’t want to do it. But now, Chengzi is dating a man. He doesn’t exclude being with men. I thought you would confess to him, but I didn’t expect you to not take action.”
Zheng Kailin turned off the faucet, “How did you know?”
Qiao Mei: “When you were in college, you ignored others, except for Liucheng. You would never refuse what he said. It’s hard for me not to see it.”
Zheng Kailin: “I’m not sure if I can give him the life he wants.”
Qiao Mei smiled, “I didn’t expect that the always confident Mr. Zheng would look forward to the future like this. Are you not afraid in the future where in he is with another man? At that time, you will not only miss him, but you’d also regret not opening your mouth this time around.”
Zheng Kailin said, “He wouldn’t accept others so easily. After graduation, he had a blind date with another woman for a year without any result, and now it won’t be an easy result. As you can see, he has two blind dates in a row. One of the two is a well-known director, and the other is a rich second generation.”
In Qiao Mei’s mind, the picture of Chengzi and Qin Lu getting along with each other involuntarily appeared, and then he looked at his friend who was a little optimistic, “There are no absolutes in the world, you are thinking too optimistically.”
Zheng Kailin felt that there was some other meaning in his words, “What do you mean? Are you aware of something?”
Qiao Mei shook his head, “I don’t know, I just want to remind you that emotional matters are not always what you think will happen. Think about it, I’ll go out first.”
He walked to the door, stopped suddenly, and then turned around, “Actually, I don’t think you are suitable for Liucheng.”
Zheng Kailin was a little unhappy when he heard these words, “Why am I not suitable?”
Qiao Bing shrugged, “I just think what Liucheng needs is someone who can change him.”
In their four years of college and the year after graduation, Zheng Kailin has long been accustomed to being a person who caters to all Jiang Liucheng’s preferences. He is the one who has changed due to his feelings toward Jiang Liucheng.
This is not to say that changing for the person you like is not a good thing, but it depends on the person.
After the two came out, Guo Qifan saw them and said, “Why did the two of you take too long at the toilet? We are almost finished.”
“Then call a little more, I’m not full yet.” Qiao Mei sat next to him with a smile.
Zheng Kailin looked at Jiang Liucheng, “Last time, someone slandered you on the Internet, do you need my help?”
Jiang Liucheng said, “No need.”
Zheng Kailin: “It’s best not to let that kind of person off easily, Otherwise, they will feel that there are no consequences for slandering others, and more similar things will happen in the future.”
“That’s not what I meant.” Jiang Liucheng said and looked at Qin Lu. Just when everyone was surprised by his gesture towards Qin Lu, Qin Lu spoke up.
“Tomorrow you will find out by following Weibo.”
Upon hearing this, Qin Lu seemed to want to help Jiang Liucheng deal with this matter.
Zheng Kailin suddenly frowned. He was surprised that Jiang Liucheng brought Qin Lu tonight. He had never brought anyone to the party of the four of them.
Now Jiang Liucheng seems to have promised Qin Lu to let him help him deal with this matter, and he feels a little uncomfortable in his heart.
The relationship is a bit over the top, not like the normal matchmaker-client relationship.
After eating the barbecue, Zheng Kailin went to checkout. According to the usual practice, they would go to KTV for a while after eating, but now that there is one more person, no one will mention it, so he won’t feel uncomfortable.
“Liucheng, you shouldn’t have any other itineraries next, take my car going back.” Zheng Kailin said to Jiang Liucheng.
Jiang Liucheng really had no other schedule, so he looked at Qin Lu.
Qin Lu said, “You should go back with them.”
Jiang Liucheng nodded, “Then you drive carefully and send me a WeChat message when you got back.”
A smile appeared on Qin Lu’s face, “Okay.”
After parting with them, Qin Lu opened the car door and sat in. As if on cue, the phone in his pocket rang.
On the other side, Jiang Liucheng, who separated from Qin Lu, followed his three friends to the parking place. It was not far from Qin Lu’s car.
Seeing that Qin Lu hadn’t left yet, Jiang Liucheng noticed that he seemed to be on the phone and wasn’t paying attention, so he didn’t say hello to him.
Zheng Kailin glanced at Qiao Mei and Guo Qifan who were walking in front, and deliberately walked a few steps behind and side by side with Jiang Liucheng.

“Liucheng, do you like your current job?”
Jiang Liucheng didn’t understand why he suddenly asked this, “It feels okay. What’s wrong?”
Zheng Kailin: “You had a blind date as soon as you graduated. You didn’t even care about your job, and you only wanted to get married, but now you seem to be different. Now it seems that work is more important to you than marriage. I’m not saying it’s bad. In fact, this is also good. Marriage should not be forced, right?”
Jiang Liucheng said, “Marriage is still my priority, but I haven’t had a job in the past year and I still can’t find a suitable marriage partner. I just want to try another method. Work and blind date are the same, maybe it will be successful? Hopefully.”
Zheng Kailin: “Then why did you choose to be an actor? Other jobs will not delay your blind date, and there are too many uncertainties in the job of an actor. Like what happened to you in the past month: there are a lot of people who are blackmailing you and scolding on the Internet,p. Every time we see this happening, we hate ourselves for not being able to help at all.”
Jiang Liucheng never thought that such words would come out of Zheng Kailin’s mouth. If it was Guo Qifan, he would not be surprised at all, “Sorry, I made you worry.”
“Don’t say sorry, it’s all of my own accords.”
After saying this, Zheng Kailin stared at Jiang Liucheng. He actually hid a little selfishness in this sentence. What Qiao Mei said in the toilet did make him feel a little bit of a crisis.
He actually wanted to talk about him earlier, but he was afraid of being discovered. That is why he deliberately talked about them as a group.
“Thank you Kailin. This kind of thing shouldn’t happen often in the future.” Jiang Liucheng didn’t notice Zheng Kailin’s careful thinking, “I’m signing a contract with Spark Entertainment now, and Qin Lu said that the company will help me with public relations in the future.”
Zheng Kailin hid the little loss in his heart. He actually knew that Jiang Liucheng shouldn’t be able to hear it. They had known each other for more than five years and were too familiar with each other.
However, he soon cheered himself up again in his heart. It doesn’t matter. He believes that there will always be a chance when he comes to Japan.
Upon saying that, Zheng Kailin stretched out his hand and touched Jiang Liucheng’s head with a hint of helplessness in his smile.
This scene happened to fall in Qin Lu’s eyes, who had just finished the phone call in the car. His face under the night light could not see much emotion.
( ◞ ‸ ◟) this is sad. Why does one of his close friends have to fall for him. It’s either move on & stay as friends orr estrangement
Kind of feel sad for Zheng Kailin. 😔
