Jiang Wangshu was quite generous. He asked about the boy’s approximate size and instructed his secretary Zhao Yu to prepare a suit and shoes for him.
When he saw him in the evening, he found that the boy was indeed quite good looking, just as his friend had said.
Because he’d just graduated from high school, his face was still young and astringent. When he saw him, his eyes drifted, obviously showing a timid and unsure look.
Jiang Wangshu asked Zhao Yu to change his suit. When he got in the car, he asked for the other party’s name. He heard him stutter, “I, uh, hello, I’m Lu Ye.”
Jiang Wangshu reached out and pushed back Lu Ye’s bangs atop his head. Showing the boy’s complete forehead, he said, “It looks more mature.”
Lu Ye immediately blushed. The boss told him that he would be a man’s partner, but he didn’t say who’s. It was enough to tempt him by being able to skip work for one night and still receive his salary.
Unexpectedly, when he met him, the other party was such a dazzling person. He boldly asked, “You’re so good-looking, but you can’t find a date?”
Jiang Wangshu withdrew his hand and replied, “I want a better image.”
Upon hearing this, Lu Ye thought that he should be very satisfied with himself. He couldn’t help jumping. He wanted to say something more, but glancing at Jiang Wangshu, he saw that Jiang Wangshu had closed his eyes, obviously not wanting to say more. Lu Ye had to settle down.
Zhao Yu acted as the chauffeur this time. From time to time, he’d look at Lu Ye from the rearview mirror, making Lu Ye more restless.
When Jiang Wangshu opened his eyes, he saw Lu Ye with his hands on his knees, looking nervous and cramped.
He said, “Don’t be so nervous. It’s just a cocktail party. You don’t have to talk. Just stand beside me.”
Lu Ye stammered, “That’s it? What if I make a mistake?”
Jiang Wangshu slightly frowned. He unfolded Lu Ye’s clenched fist and whispered, “That’s it. As long as you do what I say, you won’t make mistakes.”
Lu Ye had to try to calm down. After a while he muttered, “Okay.”
In order to relax him, Jiang Wangshu tried to chat with him more, “How old are you?”
Lu Ye replied, “I just turned 18 in April. I’m an adult.”
Saying the last few words, he deliberately accentuated the tone and emphasized the fact.
Jiang Wangshu asked, “Do you have a girlfriend?”
Lu Ye’s face reddened once more. He hurriedly said, “No, no! I, I like men.”
“Oh,” Jiang Wangshu said. “Have you ever had a boyfriend?”
Lu Ye shook his head again.
Jiang Wangshu felt a little confused when he looked at his helpless response, but he turned to accept that this was probably just a normal high school student-like response.
He couldn’t help feeling that it was a bit funny. His tone softened and he seemed more tolerant. Jiang Wangshu asked, “How about your studies?”
Speaking of this, Lu Ye became more confident as he said, “I studied in Nanling High in Dongcheng. I have always been the first in my grade.”
Jiang Wangshu had heard of this high school. Nanling High should be one of the best high schools in C City. It showed that he was really good at learning. Jiang Wangshu always liked such people, “How about the college entrance examination?”
“I think I did well. I want to go to B University. If there’s no accident, I should be able to pass.”
Jiang Wangshu was pleasantly surprised. He smiled and said, “Well, I’ll be your senior then.”
Lu Ye looked at him, eyes wide opened, “Are you from B University?”
Jiang Wangshu said “Mhm,” and added, “I graduated two years ago.”
Lu Ye was surprised, “So you, you’re only in your early twenties?”
Lu Ye carefully looked at Jiang Wangshu’s face as they pass by the street lamps scattered along the road. His heart beat rose and his voice lowered, “Then, you’re only five years older than me.”
Jiang Wangshu, “Yeah, I’m just a peer.”
The two chatted more and more speculatively. Lu Ye took out his phone and wanted to add Jiang Wangshu’s number, but was rejected.
Although Jiang Wangshu smiled with a gentle and conniving look, his eyes seemed to be alienating and distant.
As Lu Ye’s timidity seemed to reappear, Jiang Wangshu coaxed, “Well, we’ll see your performance. If you perform well, we can add each other.”
This sentence seemed to calm Lu Ye’s mind. He nodded and assured Jiang Wangshu, “I’ll do well. Don’t worry! Don’t look at me like this. In fact, I’ve been a flag raiser in school for half a year.”
Jiang Wangshu’s talk with Lu Ye was obviously effective. At least when Lu Ye got off the car, his shyness and astringency had already faded away. It was quite easy like that.
Jiang Wangshu looked at Lu Ye’s head and asked, “You’re really only 187?”
Lu Ye was stunned and said, “The net height is 187. If I wear shoes, it may be 188-190.”
Jiang Wangshu was only 179 in height, and his shoes only got him to over 180 at most. When he was six, he was still very short. For a time, people thought he was 3-4 years old. Although he didn’t eat badly in the Duan’s family, it may be that the genes of southerners kept his growth limit at 179. Sigh.
Jiang Wangshu didn’t care much about his height, but he was still a little uncomfortable in front of a group of tall people.
He doesn’t like to be looked down upon.
Jiang Wangshu nodded to Lu Ye and said, “Go in.”
When he reached the door, he ran into Meng Wen.
Meng Wen was looking at his watch when he caught a glimpse of Jiang Wangshu in the corner of his eyes. As soon as he smiled, he saw Lu Ye next to him.
Meng Wen’s face immediately changed. He strode to Jiang Wangshu, looked at Lu Ye, and then looked back at Jiang Wangshu. “Who’s this?”
Jiang Wangshu said, “My partner.”
He glanced at Meng Wen’s back. “Is Mr. Meng alone?”
Meng Wen stared at Lu Ye. He found that the man did not dare to look at him, his expression unnatural, and his face seemingly soft. He guessed a few points, and relaxed a little. With a smile, he said, “Since President Jiang didn’t want to, I could only come alone.”
Lu Ye listened and guessed that the man in front of him had failed in courtship. He couldn’t help straightening his chest. He also stretched out his hand to hold Jiang Wangshu’s, smiled and said, “Senior, let’s go in.”
Jiang Wangshu nodded, “We’re going first.”
Meng Wen could only watch Jiang Wangshu enter the entrance of the hotel in silence.
He sent a message to Duan Xiuze, “Brother Ex-husband, teach me how to catch Jiang Wangshu. He’s like an iron barrel, invulnerable to weapons.”
“? How would I know? I don’t remember anything.”
“He found someone who looked like a high schooler to be his partner. He didn’t want me. Does he really think that that kid is more attractive?”
“Ah? Why’s he with a high schooler?”
“Didn’t you know? He was invited to a cocktail party held by the Tianchi group today. I asked him to come as my date, but he didn’t want to.”
Meng Wen continued, “He found a random kid instead. You don’t know that the kid didn’t even dare to look straight at me. He was like a soft fledgling. What’s Jiang Wangshu’s intention?”
Duan Xiuze thought of the tiger and wolf words Jiang Wangshu said to him before, and inwardly nodded. Well, high schoolers must be fresh and vigorous in that aspect, right?
That said, Duan Xiuze really felt restless in his heart. He wondered if Jiang Wangshu would be cheated? Now many children have rotten minds? It won’t be good if they managed to scam him.
Duan Xiuze has no resentment against Jiang Wangshu despite their divorce. Instead, he hoped that he could give himself a good life. There was no problem finding a second spring after divorce, but shouldn’t he at least find a good one?
High school students are naive and irresponsible. How could Jiang Wangshu find a high school student to be his partner?
Duan Xiuze asked, “What does he look like?”
Meng Wen refused to admit that the other side was very handsome. He vaguely answered, “Well, generally, two eyes, two nostrils, one mouth. Very far from me.”
Duan Xiuze: “Oh, okay, so, very handsome, yeah?”
Meng Wen: “….”
“Do you want the truth?”
“If you’re a high schooler, you’ll naturally look very young. Unlike us old men, you’re certainly more handsome, but he’s young. Tender, pure, with a cute hint of innocence.”
“Hey?? I’m also only seventeen!!!!!”
“Wake up, I know your memory is only 17, but your body is already 23! Recognize the reality. There is a scientific basis that men’s sexual ability will fall precipitously at the age of 25! We’re old, man!”
Duan Xiuze: “……”
He said, “Hey? I’ll kill you!!! Even if I was 23, I’m still good, OK!!!”
After a while, Duan Xiuze asked, “Where’s the cocktail party?”
After Meng Wen said the location, he finally reacted, “What are you doing? You won’t come here, will you?”
Duan Xiuze said, “I happened to be in Feng’an. It’s only a two hour walk from city C. It’s less than half an hour by helicopter.
Meng Wen warned, “What are you trying to do?”
“Nothing, I’m just bored,” Duan Xiuze said.
Meng Wen thought to himself, Oi?? Do you think I’d believe you?
Jiang Wangshu didn’t know what Meng Wen and Duan Xiuze were talking about. He didn’t know that Duan Xiuze was coming because Meng Wen had said something.
He was also well-known within the industry, so many people talked to him. Jiang Wangshu wasn’t warm but calm and polite with them.
Compliments naturally come from his beautiful mouth, and the tall and handsome Lu Ye acted as a perfect partner, smiling and nodding from time to time.
As the night went on, although Jiang Wangshu wasn’t tired, he noticed that Lu Ye was getting a little fidgety. Jiang Wangshu took him aside to sit down, “Is it boring?”
Lu Ye nodded sheepishly, “A little.”
Jiang Wangshu sipped his wine and said, “I’m bored too, but it’s just how the adult world is.”
He looked at Lu Ye and asked, “Can you hold on for another hour?”
Lu Ye looked at Jiang Wangshu’s slightly reddened cheeks, they were beautifully tinted by the wine they drank. For a moment, he was dazed, a rash spread all over his body, making him incredibly thirsty.
Still entranced, he said, “Of course.”
Jiang Wangshu whispered, “Good boy.”
Lu Ye covered his chest. Under the palm of his hand was a rapidly beating heart.
He suddenly thought that as long as the person in front of him wanted to, he could make any man fall in love and bow down to him. He had such an overwhelming charm, it was simply impossible to ignore.
