Chapter 84- When You Like Someone, Your Standards Will Drop Again And Again
After unraveling his knot of worries, Qin Lu finally stopped worrying and was in a better mood. But he and Zhou Beiwang drank two more glasses.
After drinking a whole bottle of red wine, Qin Lu was also a little drunk at this time.
As if on cue, two beauties in the booth next door suddenly stood up and walked toward their side.
They were beside the sofa aisle Jiang Liucheng was occupying, but their eyes were fixed on Qin Lu.
“It’s boring for handsome guys to drink by themselves. Do you want us to accompany you for a few drinks?”
They have been paying attention to this place for a long time and found that the five drinking men are all handsome guys. One looks better than the other, though, especially Qin Lu. The man’s handsome silhouette is undoubtedly the most masculine among the five. Although he felt a little familiar, like a famous actor, they didn’t recognize it immediately.
One of the beauties with big waves looked at Jiang Liucheng and smiled at him: “Handsome guy, can you give me a seat?”
Before Jiang Liucheng could speak, Qin Lu frowned and glanced at the other party coldly, “No, it’ll be inconvenient.”
He finally heard the young man say that he was the only one he liked, yet someone dared to rob him in front of him.
The beautiful woman with big waves was shocked by his glance that her smile froze on her face.
The two of them didn’t dare to stay any longer and went back to the booth next door in despair.
“Hahaha, are you mistaken? The target of these beauties are you, not Liucheng.” Zhou Beiwang saw that he had misunderstood and laughed.
Qin Lu said lightly: “Even if their target is me, I won’t let them have any chance. I will always belong to Liucheng.”
Suddenly, a big wave of dog food was thrown in front of him. Zhou Beiwang scolded with dirty words. Why is he talking so cheaply, he thought to himself.
Jiang Liucheng smiled. He checked the time and found that it was already a bit late, “It’s already very late. I’ll take Qin Lu away first; you guys continue to drink.”
“Do you want me to send you off?” Zhou Beiwang put down his wine glass.
Jiang Liucheng shook his head, “No, I did not drink. I can drive.”
Zhou Beiwang: “That’s fine then.”
Jiang Liucheng got up, and then helped Qin Lu up.
Qin Lu leaned against him with the strength of wine, and it looked like he was putting his whole body weight on him. In fact, he was reluctant to part with it and just pressed a relatively lightweight.
After leaving the bar, the doorman quickly drove Qin Lu’s car over and handed the keys to Jiang Liucheng after getting off the car.
Jiang Liucheng sent Qin Lu to the passenger seat, put on his seat belt, got into the driver’s seat, and drove away.
After the car drove onto the wide road, Qin Lu was afraid that the smell of alcohol on his body would be too strong, so he opened the window. A gust of cold wind came in, and the temperature inside the car also dropped.
Jiang Liucheng closed the car window again, “Don’t open the window. It will be more uncomfortable if you get sick for two days.”
Qin Lu pulled off his tie again. The alcohol evaporated in his body, and he felt a little hot.
After a while, he suddenly realized something was wrong.
“This doesn’t seem to be the way back to my house?”
Qin Lu found that the scenery outside the car window was different from what he usually saw when he went home.
Jiang Liucheng hummed, “This is the way back to Siming community. I don’t worry about you being like this. But the place I live in is a bit small, I wonder if you won’t get used to it.”
Qin Lu felt that the heat was gone in an instant. The wine he had earlier seemed to disappear as he was more than half sober now. “How come? I must be used to it. When filming in the past, I sometimes went to the countryside to shoot. The conditions were limited, and I lived in a smaller house.”
Jiang Liucheng: “Isn’t that very hard? “
Qin Lu snorted: “Hard work is inevitable; no industry is easy. If you want to climb higher, you have to put in more effort and sweat than others.”
Qin Lu was able to reach the peak in just ten years that others might not be able to reach in twenty years of hard work, not only because of luck but more because of himself.
His brother received a call and suddenly went out in the middle of the night. Guo Qifan had already stood up as soon as he heard the sound of the door opening. Unexpectedly, Jiang Liucheng came back with a big living person.
As soon as he entered the door, the smell of alcohol wafted in from Qin Lu’s body. His face was a little red, but he didn’t look too drunk to walk.
“So you went to pick up Brother Qin.” Guo Qifan said.
Jiang Liucheng told him: “He will stay here for tonight, so he won’t disturb you.”
Guo Qifan waved his hand. “What are you talking about? It’s okay to be noisy. Anyway, I don’t have to go to work tomorrow, and I’m due in two days. So I’ll be going back to my hometown. It’s okay for Brother Qin to stay for a few nights.”
Qin Lu immediately looked at Jiang Liucheng, his eyes sparkling as if asking if it was okay.
“My place is small, and it would be a bit cramped for three people,” Jiang Liucheng said.
Qin Lu knew this was the truth, but he was still a little bit disappointed.
His disappointment was almost written on his face, and Guo Qifan felt a little unbearable when he saw it. Qin Lu wanted to live with Liucheng so much.
Jiang Liucheng suddenly said: “Although I can’t live with too many people here, I can move to your house after two days.”
As soon as these words came out, Qin Lu came back to life.
If it was before the beginning of the year, and someone would tell him that his mood would be affected by another person or even controlled to death, he would think that the other person was telling a joke.
Now, he is content with it.

“But now there is a problem. I don’t have any clothes for you to change here.” Jiang Liucheng said, “I’ll have to go to the nearby supermarket to see if there are any clothes that suit you.”
Qin Lu immediately said: “This is not a question. I’ll just ask my assistant to bring it to me.”
After speaking, as if afraid of Jiang Liucheng’s repentance, he immediately called Lin Tezhu and asked him to send some sets of clothes.
An hour later, there was a knock on the door.
Jiang Liucheng went out to open the door and saw a young man standing outside the door, wearing a pair of gold-rimmed glasses, and looking very gentle.
He had seen this person before, and it was the assistant Lin that Qin Lu had mentioned. Seeing him, Assistant Lin handed him the bag and a clean suit wrapped in a plastic bag.
“Mr. Jiang, good evening. These are Mr. Qin’s clothes. Please have them.”
“Would you like to come in for a glass of water?” Jiang Liucheng asked after taking it.
“No, thank you. Then, I’ll leave Mr. Qin to you.”
Assistant Lin left after speaking.
Jiang Liucheng returned to his room with Qin Lu’s bag and suit. Qin Lu was lying on his bed. The suit jacket had been taken off, and only his vest and shirt were left. The close-fitting vest outlined a thin and powerful upper body.
“Assistant Lin sent your clothes here. Do you want to have a look? If anything is missing, I will go down and buy it.”
“Take it.” Qin Lu propped himself up and sat up.
In addition to her tough wrists, Ms. Long also has good eyesight. The people she sends to help her are all genuine.
Jiang Liucheng opened the handbag and saw that it was indeed true. Apart from clothes, he even thought of things for washing.
But Qin Lu obviously didn’t intend to use these things. He only took the clothes. As for toothbrushes and towels, Jiang Liucheng took a new set and put them in the bathroom.
Qin Lu washed his hair. When he came out, the water dripping from his hair sank into his neck. When he heard movement in the kitchen, he went to the door to look inside.
“I cooked you a bowl of hangover soup so that you won’t have a headache after drinking it tonight and tomorrow.” Jiang Liucheng poured out the boiled hangover soup and brought it in front of him.
“I’ll do it.” Qin Lu saw that it was a little hot and immediately took it from his hand. His hands were rough, and because of filming, there was a thin layer of calluses on his fingertips, so he wouldn’t feel hot when holding a hot bowl.
“I’ll drink it when it’s cooler.”
The intermittent voices of the two reached Guo Qifan in the next room. He didn’t expect the two of them to get along so warmly in private. A few messages were sent out because of this.
Guo Qifan: [Liucheng talked about love with his boyfriend so sweetly, it made me want to find a girlfriend.]
Qiao Mei: [Are you outside?]
Guo Qifan: [No. Liucheng brought Brother Qin back here, and even made him hangover soup. Liucheng is really getting more and more virtuous.]
Qiao Mei: [Then aren’t you a big shining light bulb now?]
Guo Qifan: [I’m locked in my room, so I can’t catch them. But I won’t hear some indescribable sounds at night, right?]
Guo Qifan: [Sinister smile.jpg]
Qiao Mei: [Smile.jpg]
Qiao Mei: [You can’t say for sure.]
Zheng Kailin: [You two can chat in private if you want to chat, don’t disturb others.]
Qiao Bing: [Who is it we are bothering? Chengzi is busy with his boyfriend right now, so he must not have time to look at his phone. Thus, he can’t be bothered. Could it be that Mr. Zheng is the one being bothered?]
Guo Qifan: [Mr. Zheng, did you forget that there is a setting to block group chats? If you click on that, there will be no sound of message reminders.]
Qiao Mei: [Zheng Kailin may not know how to use it; let’s chat privately. How long will Qin Lu plan to stay with you?]
Guo Qifan: [Alright, then let’s have a private chat and don’t bother Mr. Zheng.]
In a certain city in his hometown, Qiao Mei, who had finished washing and was lying on the bed, smiled when he saw the message Zheng Kailin sent him.
Zheng Kailin: [Is it interesting for you to play it like this?]
Qiao Mei: [What did I do? I did chat privately as you wish. Are you not satisfied with this?]
Zheng Kailin: [You know exactly what I’m talking about.]
Qiao Mei: [Then you also know that she has no chance with Chengzi. Why did you lure Senior Fan to Siming Community? Zheng, people have to learn to let go. You have missed it, so don’t let yourself become the kind of person that Chengzi hates. I don’t want Chengzi to suffer any harm in the future, and I don’t want him to be sad. Qin Lu is the one that is suitable for Chengzi, haven’t you noticed? Based on the standard of the object Chengzi was looking for in the past, Qin Lui is not suitable, but he may not even realize that when he likes someone, the person’s standard will fall again and again.]
Qiao Mei: [You can’t make Chengzi change the standard for you, so just give up. You have to choose whether to be a brother for life or to be two strangers after confessing your love. You are a shrewd businessman, and you know how to weigh the pros and cons better than us.]
Seeing the eye-catching words on the screen, Zheng Kailin closed his eyes fiercely. He really couldn’t lie to himself anymore. If he missed it, he really missed it.
The next day, Qin Lu woke up and found that the person beside him in the bed was gone, nor was he in the kitchen either.
But when he came out after washing, Jiang Liucheng just walked in with breakfast.
“I bought you some porridge. Do you still have a headache today?”
“The hangover soup you made last night is very helpful, and it doesn’t hurt much now.” Qin Lu sat at the dining table, enjoying his service, waiting for him to take the spoon and bring it to him. “Do you have nothing else to do today?”
Jiang Liucheng nodded, “I have nothing to do today.”
Qin Lu suggested after hearing this, “Then do you want to go to the company with me?”
Jiang Liucheng did not refuse, “Okay.”
Jiang Liucheng knows about his family and his work situation. He only knows about Qin Lu’s family situation, but he doesn’t know how he managed the Qin Group after he retired from the circle. It’s good for him to go and have a look. It will help him understand Qin Lu better.
Thanks very much for the chapter. A great starting point for the weekend 🥰.
