Chapter 72- Beauty Is In The Eyes Of The Beholder
“Are you eating explosives?” Zhou Beiwang asked after a while.
“I haven’t eaten yet, but if you don’t talk about your business immediately, you may really have to eat explosives. I’m very busy now, so hurry up.”
Zhou Beiwang said speechlessly: “You have retired. What else is there to be busy with? Now it’s all about your news. You said that you want to solve the major issues in life. Don’t you dislike family marriages? In order to inherit the family business, you plan to sacrifice your own happiness?”
Zhou Beiwang didn’t know Qin Lu like that. He is not the kind of person who can easily compromise. Otherwise, he would not have run away from home when he was twenty and entered the entertainment circle that his family despises the most.
But if it wasn’t like this, he didn’t hear that Qin Lu had any relationship with anyone.
“When did I tell you that I want a family marriage?” Qin Lu glanced at Jiang Liucheng. He saw that he was chatting with his manager, so he slowly calmed down.
Zhou Beiwang was a little surprised when he heard this, “You’re going to get married so soon? When did it happen?”
Qin Lu said, “It’s not that soon. We’ve known each other for three or four months, and we’ve been dating for a month. We’re getting married as soon as everything is settled. That’s the purpose of dating.”
He said so calmly. Zhou Beiwang didn’t think of going to other places at all and even thought his date was a woman.
“You are really a blockbuster even if you are not making a show. I haven’t seen you get close to any woman for so many years. And yet, you actually found one without saying a word. I always thought that you wouldn’t be able to get married. And when I get married, you are going to run away in front of me.”
Qin Lu rested one arm on the sofa and crossed one of his legs before saying casually, “It’s not a woman.”
There was a slight gasp from the phone.
“I just wanted to say that if you find a woman from the entertainment industry, most of your family will not agree. But after hearing this, there’s a 100% chance that they will not agree, especially your mother. The people on your father’s side wouldn’t probably be delighted either.”
After a while, Zhou Beiwang said with emotion: “You are playing with fire, brother. Does your partner know these things? Will you still be with him?”
Young people attach great importance to family. If the parents object, the future family will probably not be harmonious. What if Jiang Liucheng thinks that such a future will not be happy and wants to break up with him?
“It seems that he doesn’t know yet.” Zhou Beiwang guessed when he heard that he didn’t speak immediately.
Qin Lu heard a hint of schadenfreude in his words and said directly, “He knows about my family’s situation.”
Jiang Liucheng, who was still looking at his phone, looked at him.
Zhou Beiwang was surprised and said, “You said everything? Including your father as a person and that illegitimate child?”
Qin Lu could imagine his shocked expression at the moment, “Of course, I said everything. Do you know his reaction?”
Zhou Beiwang immediately asked: “What’s his reaction?”
Qin Lu said: “He said that one should not be too saucy. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. That’s the best approach. I should not be afraid to fight a seven-inch snake.”
Zhou Beiwang couldn’t hold back and said, “Your object of interest is also too tough.”
At this moment, another voice came from the other end of the phone, “Are you talking to Mr. Zhou?”
Because it was a little far away, the voice did not reach Zhou Beiwang’s ears clearly, but the voice still made him feel a little sense of familiarity.
“Is there someone else in your room? Who is it? It sounds rather familiar. Could it be your boyfriend?”
“Well, I’m dating. If I have nothing else to do. I’ll hang up now.”
Zhou Beiwang was about to say something when the phone beeped. With a beeping sound, the call ended.
Qin Lu put down his phone, “It’s Zhou Beiwang. He’s here to gossip, and he’s one of the few people who know about my family.”
Jiang Liucheng asked: “You and him also knew each other since childhood?”
Qin Lu: “My mother and his mother are friends. We have known each other since childhood.”
Thinking of what Zhou Beiwang just said, Qin Lu tentatively asked: “You said before that you went on a blind date for a year. Why did you fail based on your conditions?”
Jiang Liucheng tilted his head, “There are many reasons, most of which are inappropriate.”
Qin Lu: “For example, what aspects are inappropriate? “
Jiang Liucheng glanced at him, “It’s all about personality. Why did you suddenly ask this question?”
Qin Lu decided to tell the truth, “I’m afraid that I will step on the thunder, and I can only avoid it if I know the reason. I’m glad I didn’t date you when I first met you. Otherwise, maybe when I step on the thunder, we will have no hope.”
Jiang Liucheng looked at him in surprise. In his heart, Qin Lu is an excellent and perfect person.
“Why do you think so? I should be the one who thinks this way. You are prettier than me, better than me, and a nice person. My conditions are definitely not as good as yours. Although I am very satisfied with you, this is not the case. It means that you will definitely fall in love with me, and I should be the one who has this kind of trouble.”
Qin Lu was even more surprised to hear such words from his mouth, which undoubtedly gave him reassurance, and involuntarily appeared in his eyes a gentle smile.
“Maybe you’ve heard a saying.”
“For example, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

——Jiang Liucheng returned to the hotel where the crew was staying after eleven o’clock in the evening, but he couldn’t fall asleep after lying on the bed.
The screen of his mobile phone on the bedside table lit up. He took it over to see that it was sent to him by Qin Lu. Because he will be filming tomorrow, he let him go to bed early.
Jiang Liucheng stared at the message and replied hello, but couldn’t fall asleep anyway.
The small group of four had calmed down. They had been sending messages during the day, but because he was with Qin Lu, he didn’t reply much.
At this time, only Qiao Mei sent a message. The other party worked overtime at night and had just finished working overtime.
Jiang Liucheng thought for a while, and called Qiao Mei directly. When the phone was picked up, Qiao Mei’s voice came from the other line: “Why are you calling me so late? Is there something wrong?”
“Yes.” Jiang Liucheng said, “There is one thing I haven’t figured out, and I want to ask you what you think.”
“Then tell me. I just got off work and have nothing to do; I’m waiting for the bus.”
Jiang Liucheng told him what Qin Lu told him. Repeated the words, “Does that mean he likes me?”
Qiao Mei’s laughter came from the phone, “Congratulations, isn’t that obvious? Didn’t Guo Qifan often say that your Chinese scores were particularly good before? Why don’t understand anything.”
Jiang Liucheng propped up his upper body to lean his back against the head of his bed. He bent his legs and said, “This didn’t happen on my previous blind dates before.”
“Your previous blind date didn’t talk to you about it? Feelings. What you are talking about is whether they are suitable or not, right?”
“Yes. It is not like this at all. Everyone says that blind dates pay attention to whether they are suitable or not, so I don’t understand why Qin Lu likes me.”
“Chengzi, you don’t know how much you know about yourself.” Qiao Mei sighed, “Don’t you know how good you are? In my opinion, it’s normal to like you. Besides, you and Qin Lu are the same. The acquaintance comes first, and the blind date comes later. Maybe, he already liked you before he agreed to go on a blind date with you. Otherwise, with Qin Lu’s identity and status, why would he go on a blind date with a person who has no feelings? It’s not like he can’t find a partner or he really wants to get married. Hook your fingers; most people would want to marry him.”
Jiang Liucheng touched his neck, a little surprised, and said: “He likes me, so he agreed to go on a blind date with me?”
Qiao Mei: “What do you think, otherwise?”
Jiang Liucheng: “He said that he also likes men, but he didn’t like men before. He said that he discovered that he can like men a few months ago.”
Qiao Mei laughed, “You have been on blind dates so many times, and you’re still an emotional idiot. Didn’t the two of you meet a few months ago?”
Jiang Liucheng opened his mouth, a little stunned, “So the person he said was willing to change for is actually me?”
Qiao Mei said affirmatively: “I think so, ninety-nine percent. In fact, I am very happy that there is such a person who really likes you. Maybe someone can find true love through a blind date, but the probability is relatively low after all. I hope you can find someone who likes you, and you like too. Not just for the sake of getting married. A marriage without feelings may not be happy. If you doubt it, just ask him directly. Just like when you asked him if he likes men before.”
Jiang Liucheng is a person who doesn’t like to struggle for a long time for a result, so he said: “Okay, I will ask now. Thank you, brother Qiao, you have helped me a lot.”
“If you really want to thank me, then don’t call me sister Qiao; I’m begging you.”
Qiao Mei’s speechless voice came from the phone.
Jiang Liucheng laughed out loud, “Guo Qifan has called you like this for so many years. I thought you already recognized him.”
Qiao Mei said: “Guo Qifan is a simple-minded person with well-developed limbs. The less you let him do the things he wants, the more you work harder. If I stop him again and again, I’m afraid he will spread the word about me, and the whole world will know.”
Jiang Liucheng: “I’ll treat you to dinner when I have time.”
Qiao Mei: “Okay, just tell me when beforehand. I’m almost home too, just let me know if you have the result.”
Jiang Liucheng: “Okay.”
Hanging up the phone, Jiang Liucheng wanted to call Qin Li already but was afraid that he had already fallen asleep. So he just sent a message to try it out.
On the other hand, Qin Lu couldn’t sleep. He just confessed his love to someone today, and he was still a little excited at this time, so he replied immediately after receiving his text message.
Chengcheng: [You haven’t slept yet? Why haven’t you slept yet? Didn’t you tell me to go to bed early?
Jiang Liucheng: [How did you change your name?]
Chengcheng: [Isn’t this a good name?]
Jiang Liucheng didn’t pay attention when he sent the message at the beginning. He was more focused on looking at Qin Lu’s WeChat profile picture, and then he saw his new nickname and his own name side by side. He suddenly felt a little sweet in his heart and tapped his fingers on the screen immediately.
Jiang Liucheng: [It fits well.]
Qin Lu rested one hand on the back of his head and put a smile on his face.
Chengcheng: [I will never change it again. So why are you here to talk to me so late?]
Jiang Liucheng: [I have a question for you.]
Chengcheng: [What’s the problem?]
Jiang Liucheng: [You’ve mentioned that there was someone who made you think it would be a good idea to try liking a guy, was it me?]
After Jiang Liucheng sent it, he waited quietly. About ten seconds later, a new message popped up in the floodlit chat window.
Chengcheng: [Do you have any misunderstanding about yourself? Who else can this person be except you?]
The light from his screen shone on Jiang Liucheng’s face. He used to think that in a marriage, feelings were not the basis for maintaining a marriage. Many people form a family through blind dates, and they can live well.
For the first time, he felt as though it would be nice to have feelings for his blind date.
