Zheng Kailin put down his teacup and said with emotion, “Now that I think about it, I actually regret it. If the money is gone, you can earn it again. If the good life in college is gone, it’s gone.”
Jiang Liucheng: “You didn’t listen to what everyone said before, but it’s not too late now. You are already a winner in life in terms of money and status.”
“You’re right.” Zheng Kailin stared at him, “So I regret it now. Do you think I really have time?”
Jiang Liucheng nodded without hesitation, “Of course, you are still so young. You are only one year older than me, and many people can still make it when they are thirty.”
Although he knew what the other party said differed from what he thought, Zheng Kailin also felt a little reassured.
Just when he wanted to get into the subject, the waiter came to deliver the food.
Zheng Kailin had no choice but to suppress his thoughts temporarily, waiting for the waiter to bring in the dishes one by one.
Until there were two people left in the box again.
Zheng Kailin served him a bowl of soup and put it in front of him, “It’s a bit hot. Drink carefully.”
“Thank you; you should drink too. You should be quite tired after working all day.”
Zheng Kailin glanced at Jiang Liucheng, who was seriously drinking the soup, and asked unintentionally, “Is that screenwriter Jian still sending you messages?”
Jiang Liucheng blew the chicken soup in the spoon, “He is just chatting with me like an ordinary friend. He is quite sensitive, so I just replied with a few words. I didn’t chat with him for too long, so he asked why I was ignoring him. It’s not easy for me to directly answer that.”
Zheng Kailin, “It seems that this person won’t give up if you don’t talk about it. Why don’t you find an opportunity to tell him not to bother you anymore.”
Jiang Liucheng: “No need, I have already told Qin Lu, and he said he will solve it.”
Zheng Kailin paused, “You told him? When did he say he would solve it?”
Jiang Liucheng didn’t care about his repeated questions and simply answered, “I mentioned it to him yesterday. By the way, there is one more thing I wanted to tell you before I went back to the community and had dinner together.”
Zheng Kailin tightened his hand holding the chopsticks and suddenly had a bad premonition. He felt that the next words were not what he wanted to hear.
Jiang Liucheng said, “I have a new blind date. You all know this person. It’s Qin Lu.”
Zheng Kailin’s mind was buzzing. The last thing he expected happened, “When did this happen?”
“Last night, didn’t you say that Qin Lu might not be what I thought he was? So I went to ask him, but I didn’t expect that he also liked men. That is why I asked him if he would try a blind date with me, and he agreed.”
Jiang Liucheng didn’t notice his friend’s face. Not to mention the fact that he looked very happy when he said it because he felt that this time it might succeed.
Unlike other blind dates, he and Qin Lu had known each other for several months before they became blind dates, and they had a certain understanding of each other.
In the past, a blind date was like opening a blind box. Before the meeting, one simply learned about family information, and the real situation would only be known after meeting and contact.
He thinks the success rate should be pretty high now that they have a foundation.
“Fortunately, you reminded me of the important things this time. Otherwise, I would never have thought of going on a blind date with Qin Lu. Thanks to you, Qin Lu even asked me to thank you.”
Zheng Kailin couldn’t laugh anymore.
Jiang Liucheng was still talking behind him, but he didn’t pay much attention.
The other party’s words disrupted all his plans and based on what he knew about Jiang Liucheng. It was impossible for him to accept another person when he was on a blind date.
However, this time he didn’t dare to wait any longer. He had a bad feeling that if he waited any longer, he might really not have the chance to speak.
Don’t say there is no chance. It is very likely that even friends are right.
Zheng Kailin didn’t enjoy this meal very much. He chose this restaurant carefully based on the Jiang Liucheng’s taste, thinking that he would wait until the atmosphere was the most relaxed before he opened his mouth.
“What’s the matter?” Jiang Liucheng noticed that he was absent-minded.

Zheng Kailin thought about it again and again and still wanted to test it out, “I suddenly remembered what a business partner of mine asked me a few days ago. He said he liked his friend. He didn’t know if his friend would agree to the confession.”
Jiang Liucheng thought for a while and said, “It depends on the situation. I don’t know what their situation is, so it’s hard to say.”
Zheng Kailin pretended to smile and said, “Speaking of which, we were all surprised when you suddenly decided to go on a blind date with a man. Guo Qifan also jokingly told me that if he knew you would accept men, maybe he would do it too.”
Jiang Liucheng laughed and said, “Guo Qifan is heterosexual, so he doesn’t know how to do it. He was just joking.”
Zheng Kailin: “Assuming it’s not a joke, would you accept him, Qiao Mei, or me?”
Jiang Liucheng gave him the answer without much thought, “Not with the three of you.”
Zheng Kailin blurted out: “Why?”
Jiang Liucheng: “I am too familiar with Guo Qifan. We have known each other since we were young. It is impossible for me to be with him. Meanwhile, Qiao Mei is heterosexual, and he told me before that he plans to get married after the age of thirty. As for you…”
After listening to him finish the first two words, Zheng Kailin swallowed a little nervously.
“We are not suitable either.” Jiang Liucheng said, “Mr. Zheng, you are excellent, but you are not the type I am looking for. I will not look for someone who is very ambitious.”
Zheng Kailin has always felt that as long as they are familiar with each other, there will be a chance, but he never thought that the most important thing is this question, “Then what if I can change?”
Jiang Liucheng still shook her head, “I don’t think it’s suitable, and I already have a blind date now, so I won’t consider other people.”
Until the two returned to Siming Community, Zheng Kailin failed to confess his love to Jiang Liucheng according to his plan. After listening to his words, he decided to temporarily bury this feeling in his heart. He didn’t want to confess and ruin their friendship.
When going up the elevator, Jiang Liucheng’s mobile phone rang a few times.
He glanced at it. There was a message from Qin Lu asking if he had gone home after eating and a message from Qiao Mei.
He replied to Qin Lu first, saying that he had finished eating and returned to the community and was going upstairs.
Because the distance was relatively close, Zheng Kailin happened to see it, and his mood dropped even more. Qiao Mei and Qin Lu sent him messages at the same time. He chose to reply to Qin Lu first. From the details, he could see that he attached great importance to the latter.
Qin Lu didn’t reply to him, and Jiang Liucheng didn’t care. He was probably still filming at this point in time.
Zheng Kailin saw him put away his phone after replying to the two of them. He was a little surprised and said, “Is Qin Lu busy?”
Jiang Liucheng hummed, “He has a relatively heavy role today.”
“Film Emperor Qin seems to be a career-oriented person.” Zheng Kailin pretended to be casual and said this.
Jiang Liucheng thought about what happened in the morning and replied, “He’s different. He asked about me earlier.”
Zheng Kailin was choked. He shouldn’t have asked.
After sending Jiang Liucheng up, he left.
“Why did Boss Zheng leave so quickly?” Guo Qifan thought he would come in and sit for a while, then poked his head out to find that he really had left.
“Probably something happened.” Jiang Liucheng put on his indoor slippers.
Guo Qifan retracted his head and followed behind him, “Speaking of which, when I was looking at Weibo just now, I found that there was a marketing account that kept posting some information about you and the tone seemed a bit hostile.”
Jiang Liucheng glanced at his phone. Qin Lu’s assistant replied to him, saying that because Qin Lu was always out of state, it caused many scene retakes. He originally wanted to leave work earlier, but it took longer than expected.
Although it wasn’t Qin Lu himself who replied, upon seeing what his assistant sent, he could imagine the feeling of the man slightly eager to contact him in person, and the corners of his mouth curled up.
Oof, made wedding dress for others, and before confession, already receive words of impossibility 😅 poor Zheng. May he find his own direction soon.
