Chapter 81- Jiang Liucheng In His Student Days
It’s also like liking someone; Qin Lu knows that feeling. The last time they met at a barbecue stand, he found that Zheng Kailin seemed to care about Jiang Liucheng very much.
As an actor, Qin Lu is very good at capturing other people’s emotions. Although Zheng Kailin concealed it very well, he recalls the scene now and knows that Zheng Kailin probably likes Jiang Liucheng, but the other party probably never confessed.
Since you have never confessed your love, then you should never confess your love, Qin Lu thought to himself.
“Let me.” Qin Lu held Jiang Liucheng’s hand as he was about to serve the soup.
The two hands folded together.
Zheng Kailin glanced at it without any trace, his eyes dimmed.
He picked up a bottle of beer, opened the cap, and downed half of the bottle in one gulp.
“It’s ok, Mr. Zheng. You’ve suddenly become so proud. Here let me drink with you.” Guo Qifan started rambling as soon as he was on vacation and opened a new bottle to drink with him.
Having just been stabbed, Zheng Kailin didn’t want to listen to him.
After a while, Guo Qifan was already drunk after drinking a few bottles of beer, but he already seemed a little erratic as his cheeks were flushed.
He usually talks a lot, but he obviously talked more after drinking. He babbled to Qin Lu about what happened when they were studying.
“When Liucheng was in high school, girls who liked him would go around the school several times. At one time, our class teacher always received complaints from teachers in other classes. Some girls sneaked into our class to peek at Liucheng, which affected others’ learning. But our class teacher doesn’t care much, so he just asked other teachers to take care of their students and not let those girls disturb our study again.”
“Liucheng was a topnotcher at that time. In fact, he is only to be recommended to Q University directly. There is no exam pressure, so he often helps us with tutoring. That is why our homeroom teacher protects him like an eyeball. If it weren’t for Liucheng, I would not have been admitted to Q University. My parents respect him more than me. It’s as if Liucheng is their own son while I am just there to pay the phone bill.
“You remember wrong.” Jiang Liucheng said. “Aunt Guo said they picked you up in the trash can.”
“You know what? Just go.” Guo Qifan gave him a gentle push.
Qin Lu asked with a smile: “After he was admitted to the university, did many girls chase after him?”
Guo Qifan drank the rest of his beer in one gulp. He hiccupped first before speaking. “After entering university, his admirers just tripled. Girls are not like girls in high school. Some of them are very courageous. They put flowers and drinks on his table every day just so they could get Liucheng’s attention.”
Qin Lu looked at Jiang Liucheng, “Do you drink the beverages?”
Jiang Liucheng shook his head, “No.”
Guo Qifan said with a chuckle: “How could he possibly drink it? Liucheng said that he was afraid that someone would poison him and would eventually throw it away. However, the next day, the pattern changed. The flowers on his desk were freshly picked. In fact, there were still dews on the three flowers. There’s also a note saying not to throw it away and that nothing there is poisonous.”
“It only meant one thing. It means that the person who gave Liucheng drinks and flowers was in our class, otherwise how would she know that Liucheng said that the drink might be poisonous? It was a physical education class at that time, and most of the people were playing outside. There are not many of our classmates in the class, so I can guess who she is. Although, I can’t really tell since I don’t have hard evidence.”
Qin Lu asked Jiang Liucheng: “After that, she confessed? Did you reject her?”
Jiang Liucheng thought about it. “She gave me something for about a month, and then she confessed to me. I didn’t want to fall in love at that time, so I refused.”
Guo Qifan laughed and said: ” Later, one after another, school girls continued to chase Liucheng and were rejected. After a while, they’ve realized that the law of women chasing men’s interlayer yarn may not work for Liucheng.”
“Liucheng was really popular that every year when new students enrolled, there would always be a few hard-headed people chasing after him. Nonetheless, they are all rejected without exception. There are always people who think that maybe they will be the only exception.”
While talking, Zheng Kailin mocked himself in his heart. At least those people have tried to express their feelings, but he didn’t even have the last chance to confess when obviously he had so many chances.
“I don’t remember much.” Jiang Liucheng said.
“Of course, you don’t remember, but there is one person you may still remember.” Guo Qifan said triumphantly, “Do you remember Senior Sister Fan?”
Jiang Liucheng: “Yes.”
Qin Lu noticed that Jiang Liucheng was bringing up some past events. Sometimes he would show a look of reminiscence, but when Guo Qifan talked about this Senior Fan, he didn’t pause at all.
Guo Qifan said to Qin Lu: “Emperor Qin, do you have any idea who had persisted the longest in terms of courting Liucheng? Well, it must be no other than Fan Xuejie. At that time, she was a member of the student union and was responsible for receiving new students. I don’t know that she likes Liucheng, and she doesn’t follow Liucheng directly like other people. Instead, she waits until she gets to know us well, sums up the failure experience of other girls, and doesn’t confess until the second half of her junior.”
Zheng Kailin suddenly answered: “Speaking of which, Liucheng didn’t seem to directly reject Fan Xuejie at that time. I remember Liucheng saying that he didn’t want to fall in love in college, right?
“It doesn’t matter if we don’t talk about it. She could’ve waited until he graduated from university.”
Qin Lu asked calmly, “Then why didn’t you talk about it after graduation from university?
“At first we still kept in touch, but because of the time difference, the contact gradually decreased. However, I heard from another senior that Senior Fan posted on Moments a few days ago, saying that she was going back to China. I don’t know if it’s true or not. Liucheng, don’t you have her as WeChat friend? Have you seen it?”
Jiang Liucheng shook his head, “I don’t know. I haven’t checked Moments in the past few days.”
Guo Qifan asked casually: “Aren’t you out of work for the time being? You shouldn’t be busy for a few days. Why don’t you even have time to look at Moments?”
Jiang Liucheng: “Who told you that I’m not busy? I’m busy every day.”
Guo Qifan: “Ah, what else are you busy with? You live in your boyfriend’s house, and you have a villa servant to serve you every day. Am I not wrong?”
Jiang Liucheng said: “Yes, but I am still very busy. The villa is very big, and there are many things to do during the day. I go for a run with Qin Lu in the morning. The rest of the time, when Qin Lu is working, I follow the butler to repair the house, water flowers, and plants. And then I’ll accompany my boyfriend at night, bring him fruit or water, watch movies and TV shows together, and sometimes tell me how to act. Isn’t that right?”

He looked at Qin Lu, who was drinking beer. The corners of Qin Lu’s mouth curled up, “Yes.”
“After eating this wave of dog food, I feel like I’m full.” Guo Qifan felt that the wine in his glass was tasteless.
Zheng Kailin continued to drink a glass of dull wine.
“I’m going to the bathroom.” Qin Lu put down his glass and said to Jiang Liucheng. He also drank a little too much tonight.
After Qin Lu untied his hands and was washing his hands, another person came into the bathroom. It was Zheng Kailin who also drank too much. He was not jealous when he met his rival.
Qin Lu just nodded at him and walked out after washing his hands.
“You…” Zheng Kailin said suddenly.
However, before he could say the following words, Guo Qifan’s yelling voice came in, “Mr. Zheng, why are you walking so fast? You didn’t wait for me.”
Qin Lu knew what Zheng Kailin might want to say, but he didn’t intend to expose it. For the other party’s thoughts, once his thoughts are revealed, it’ll be easier to break the jar and say things that have not been announced before. He doesn’t want to give the Zheng Kailin this opportunity.
When Guo Qifan came in, he left.
Not long after, Zheng Kailin and Guo Qifan returned to the box one after the other.
After eating, Zheng Kailin went to pay the bill. However, the waiter told him that the bill had already been settled.
“You are Chengcheng’s friends; I should invite you for a meal next time.” Qin Lu said.
Upon hearing his address to Jiang Liucheng, Zheng Kailin’s eyes dimmed. He had also thought about calling Jiang Liucheng that way.
Jiang Liucheng helped Guo Qifan, who was already a little drunk, and this guy didn’t forget to compliment him when he heard this.
“The driver came faster for us.”
“You guys go back first. I’ll wait a little longer.” Zheng Kailin said.
“Okay, then we will be going. Let us know in the group chat when you arrive.”
After Jiang Liucheng finished speaking, he and Qin Lu stuffed Guo Qifan into the back seat, and then he also sat beside him to prevent him from moving around. With a little reason. “No, I’ll just sit in front. I can’t separate you two.”
Because of his tongue hanging out, the substitute driver couldn’t hear what he was talking about clearly. But Jiang Liucheng did so.”Sit down, don’t move around.”
Qin Lu took the passenger seat and told the driver the address of Siming Community.
“I said I’m not drunk, but you don’t believe me.” Guo Qifan said with a flushed face.
“People who are drunk will never admit that they are drunk.” Jiang Liucheng didn’t buy it at all. “You drink so much wine tonight that you will be uncomfortable again tomorrow. Don’t expect that I won’t ignore you.”
“I’m happy.” Guo Qifan argued, “My good brother has finally found his home. From now on, he will be accompanied by his family every day, and he will no longer be alone. I am so happy, so I drank a few more glasses.”
Upon hearing this, Jiang Liucheng felt a hint of warmth in his heart. He could actually guess that Guo Qifan was a little overjoyed tonight. It was impossible that this is just to celebrate his early vacation. “Yeah, you don’t have to worry about my business anymore. Worry about yourself. Go back to Aunt Guo this time. Aunt Guo will definitely talk about you and let you get married early.”
After a long while, Guo Qifan leaned on the ground, “Can you stop saying such words? I’m more than half woken up by you.”
Jiang Liucheng laughs out loud.
Qin Lu, who was sitting in front, also curled the corners of his mouth.
“I almost forgot one more thing.” Guo Qifan suddenly sat up limply and said to Qin Lu in the front seat: “Mr. Qin, you are the film king and the boss of the Qin family. But I, Guo Qifan, will not let you go if you hurt our Liucheng.”
Qin Lu noticed the surprised look in the driver’s eyes, but he didn’t care, “Don’t worry. That day will never happen.”
“Hiccup, remember your words. I will keep an eye on you.” After Guo Qifan finished speaking, he fell back on the leather seat.
Just when the car was quiet again, the phone in Jiang Liucheng’s pocket suddenly rang several times. He took it out and swiped open the screen to take a look.
Before he could take a closer look, his shoulder became heavy. Guo Qifan pressed his head on his shoulder and almost lost his grip on the phone.
“Who sent you the message?”
Guo Qifan narrowed his eyes. When he saw the person who sent the message clearly, the other half who was still drunk was startled awake.
“Hey, am I going crazy? Did I read it right? She said she will be here. Why did Senior Xujie send you a message? Didn’t you say that you didn’t know the news that she was going back to China?”
