Chap.10 – This celebrity, please have some restraint
PUBLISHED ON 27 May 2022
Zhou MuHui’s face became ashen, and scolded him in a low voice, “Shut up.”
Xin Yi was confused by what he said, stammeringly refuting, “It’s not, it’s not the case!”
But the hand that was hanging down on one side flushed red.
Qi Fang let out an oh, said with suspicion, “It is really not it? Then what’s the parcel of white skin that I saw just now?”
“… It’s my hand.”
Xin Yi did not refute him in an imposing manner, then in the next second, he remembered that he should be angry.
“…Why do you always speak nonsense.”
Xin Yi wrinkled his brows and refuted him in a very serious manner.
Xin Yi looks very good and is different from the prevalent elegant and refined normal people, perhaps it is the simple and natural stupidness that comes from him and made him look like he was really easy to bully yet reluctant to bully.
Otherwise, Qi Fang wouldn’t have accepted to take a photo with him when he saw his eyes turn red.
From Qi Fang’s angle, he could only see half of the neat pajama he was wearing and the half of the cheek that was exposed, he got stuck, then was a little wronged.
“Then sorry, I was in a hurry and saw it in a blur.”
Zhou MuHui picked up the handphone, and Qi Fang’s familiar face appeared on the screen, Xin Yi moved back a little, from the corner of his eyes he saw the other party’s worried look, then calmed down a bit.
“Alright, then don’t be like this next time.”
Qi Fang nodded repeatedly but got anxious in the next second, probably because he saw Zhou MuHui’s ashen face, and felt that Zhou MuHui was about to hang up the call, hurriedly said, “Ok ok I know I was wrong, brother Zhou brother Zhou, don’t hang up.”
His voice was desperate, Xin Yi couldn’t help but laugh, he turned around and pulled on the hem of Zhou MuHui’s clothes, and whispered, “Forget it, don’t be angry.”
Hence the phone was put down again, but the video call was turned into a voice call, Xin Yi was about to leave, yet Zhou MuHui paused for a moment, and pulled him.
“It’s fine.” Zhou MuHui said.
“It’s good if it’s fine, it’s good if it’s fine, I knew that brother Zhou was someone beautiful and kind, and won’t haggle with someone like me.”
Qi Fang exaggeratedly let out a sigh in relief, even his intonation became slower.
Xin Yi lowered his head to look at the hand on his wrist, then lifted his head to look at Zhou MuHui, Zhou MuHui was directly looking at him, and pulled him to sit next to him.
He repeated himself one more time.
Xin Yi slowly nodded, and also let out an oh.
He had a hard time understanding Zhou MuHui, didn’t Zhou MuHui dislike it when he was in contact with his colleagues, why did he want him to stay now.
“Ah? I’ve heard it.”
A confused sound came from the other party, Xin Yi tardily returned to his senses and turned around to look at him.
“Wasn’t talking to you.”
Xin Yi explained to him, “Zhou MuHui was talking to me.”
The other party weirdly paused for a while, Xin Yi blinked, tilted his head and looked at Zhou MuHui with a puzzled look, and didn’t understand what was wrong with the other party.
Zhou MuHui did not explain, instead, he nodded at him, and looked like he acknowledged it.
The breathing of the other party became heavier and called them out in a flustered and exasperated manner.
“…You two, you two!”
Qi Fang nearly didn’t catch his breath and was angered by them to half-death.
“And you said that you are my fan!”
Xin Yi finally understood that Qi Fang was angry, but the other party’s reaction was really amusing, he couldn’t help but laugh out loud.
“Little kid! You still dare to laugh!”
Xin Yi covered his mouth, and looked at him innocently, Zhou MuHui looked back at him, and gently covered up the smile on the corner of his mouth.
Qi Fang was unwilling to admit defeat, Xin Yi didn’t cause any trouble anymore, they started to talk about serious matters, after Xin Yi finished writing his homework and carefully listened to a section of it, and only then did he understand what they were talking about.
Before Qi Fang was caught in a scandal with someone of the same sex, causing a big fuss, it calmed down a few days ago with difficulty, as a result yesterday both of them were photographed going to a hotel together, and they still did not come out until now.
It skyrocketed in the hot topics, it already stayed on the list for a whole day, and now he was blocked inside of the hotel by the journalists, unable to go anywhere.
“I did not do that on purpose, how could I know that they would also be there, you say, it caused such a big fuss before, I already went over all my friend’s houses, I really don’t have anywhere else to go.”
He said dejectedly, “Ah*, brother Zhou, how about I go over to your house, no one would know it anyway.”
*sound of a sigh
Xin Yi turned around, rested his head on his arms, and looked at him.
“Go find sister Chen.”
Sister Chen was Qi Fang’s new manager, Qi Fang begged for mercy, “I won’t, sister Chen is crazy, she wanted me to seize the opportunity to become a CP1 with him, but I am a straight guy!”
After all, is said and done, he still begged for mercy, he said that he couldn’t stay in the hotel anymore, that person and he was living across from each other, and he didn’t know what would happen if he continued to stay like that.
Then begged Zhou MuHui not to turn away from a dying man, saying that they worked together for so many years, and has done hard work even if he has not performed meritorious deeds, it made Xin Yi laugh, and he sneakily moved closer while listening to his wail, and asked, “Then the thing on the internet about a recording of you confessing to him, is it true?”
The other party heard his question and choked, stalled for half a day, and did not make a sound, Zhou MuHui touched his forehead, and whispered, “It has already been deleted by me.”
Xin Yi widened his eyes, and looked at his handphone in astonishment, “So it was true.”
“That was a misunderstanding…”
The person on the other end of the phone spitted out that sentence as if one was squeezing toothpaste, but gave up explaining, and try to treat a dead horse as if it was still alive2, and wanted Zhou MuHui and him to pick him up and take him back with them.
Zhou MuHui bluntly refused, Xin Yi felt his heart soften, but didn’t say anything, he just pursed his lips and calmly lay down, occasionally looking at Zhou MuHui.
The other side was still pestering relentlessly, Zhou MuHui could perceive his stage, the man paused for a while, clicked on the mute button on the phone, and looked at Xin Yi.
Suddenly looking at him with these kinds of eyes.
Xin Yi blinked, and said, “Nothing.”
Zhou MuHui didn’t believe him, he lowered his head and moved closer, his breath was close to Xin Yi’s lips, asked him in a low voice while looking at him, “Want him to come?”
The man was leaning so closely, Xin Yi was a bit anxious, and couldn’t help but nod, then suddenly reacted in the next second, and asked, “Is it ok?”
His eyes were too soft, and made Zhou MuHui unconsciously indulge himself in them, and instantly let his standpoint collapse.

Qi Fang came very quickly, but Xin Yi inadvertently fell asleep.
After hanging up the call, Zhou MuHui was very busy, probably dealing with Qi Fang’s matters, Xin Yi finished writing his homework with difficulty, and slouched on the table and was looking at him, but his eyelids felt heavier and heavier.
But before he got to fall asleep, the doorbell rang, Xin Yi was startled awake, rubbed his eyes, and was about to get up to open the door.
But Zhou MuHui stopped him.
Xin Yi didn’t even know why he was so tired, he was leaning against the table and nodded in a daze, and told him, “Ok.”
At the same time that there were movements outside, he couldn’t help but slouch on the table again and fell asleep while listening to the sounds.
When Zhou MuHui returned, he was already deeply asleep, the man paused for a while, and carried him to the sofa, then extinguished the lights before carefully leaving.
It was already nighttime when Xin Yi woke up, the floor lamp in the study room was switched up and emitting dim yellow light, he climbed off the sofa in a daze, and his foot landed on something soft.
The soft thing called out, and appeared to feel wronged.
“… Mao Mao.”
Xin Yi lowered his head, and hurriedly picked him up.
“How come you are here.”
He looked at the cat in his arms and asked him, and tilted his head to look out of the window into the pitch-black night.
And tardily remembered what he did.
He fell asleep when Qi Fang came over, and he left people outside for half a day, Xin Yi almost bit his tongue, he carried the cat, and hurriedly walked out.
When the poor were pushed, Qi Fang happened to turn around, looked at him and mischievously greeted him, and called him, “Little kid, come over.”
Xin Yi was a bit embarrassed, then paused stiffly halfway, then looked around in a loss.
“Oh, looking for brother Zhou? He went grocery shopping, and said that you were probably going to wake up.”
Qi Fang explained, then looked at him with a smile, “He really gets you, he left less than ten minutes before you woke up.”
Xin Yi’s disappointed spirit returned to its place, pursed his lips into a smile, a bit shy.
He wasn’t wide awake yet, his mind still remained in the dizziness of dream, and didn’t know how to answer that question.”
“You want to drink or not.”
Xin Yi put the cat down and asked him.
The cat got on the floor and jumped on the sofa, and peacefully lay down next to Qi Fang.
Qi Fang let out a surprised sound, “What a fat tabby cat.”
Xin Yi happened to come back with the water, and explained, “He is old, so his body is also big.”
*”oh” that shows understanding
Qi Fang took the water, and told him, “Little kid, brother Zhou said that you’re taking me in, thank you.”
He smiled candidly, differently from when they first met, Xin Yi blinked and told him he was welcomed.
Qi Fang stared at him without looking away, Xin Yi felt weird being stared at by him like that but he didn’t say anything, and the other party let out a long sigh.
“Are you not my fan? How come you got together with brother Zhou?”
He said that everyone was stunned that day, watching the two of them, and didn’t return to their senses, and also said that Zhou MuHui was very cool, especially the scar on his face, he once thought that his brother Zhou wouldn’t be able to find a wife.
“Let him go get a laser but he won’t go, he insisted on keeping it.” Qi Fang scratched his head, “He is originally already special, but with a scar, who would want…”
The words were halfway spoken and he urgently stopped, Qi Fang hurriedly closed his mouth, “I cannot say this.”
His talk was very long, Xin Yi was originally almost dizzy from his talking, he sensitively could perceive what the half-spoken words were about.
Xin Yi paused for a while, holding the cup of water, and shook his head, “It’s fine, I know.”
Qi Fang looked at him in a shock, “Ah, you know.”
“Then I won’t talk about it, it’s all the past, don’t worry, I won’t make you feel sad once again.”
He smiled proudly, “Look, I didn’t say anything wrong this time,.”
Xin Yi felt like he was the grass on the top of a wall that sways with every wind, during this short period he came in contact with Qi Fang made him think that person was not bad, and involuntarily pulled him out from his black list.
Xin Yi nodded, “You did not.”
“But you count as someone of his family, I have to seriously explain this matter to you, after all, brother Zhou was my manager at the beginning, these things that everyone knows, especially in this industry, and are quite sensitive towards these things, or else by the time it’s exposed out, it will be another foul wind and a rain of blood.”
“And some of my fans aren’t very reasonable, although brother Zhou’s matter is a bit special… but you also know, a lot of people won’t really care about the cause.”
“Aiya, don’t be like this.” Qi Fang looked at his anxious face, and hurriedly said, “I’ve already covered these pieces of information about him, and already deleted those I could delete, don’t worry.”
Xin Yi loosened his hand that was clenched the whole time, exerced strength, and nodded, then sat up straight, and thanked Qi Fang.
Qi Fang was startled by his serious expression of thanks, and said quite embarrassed, “It’s fine, it’s fine, this is nothing.”
“Brother Zhou also helped me a lot.”
He spoke to a half before reacting, “It’s not right, last time I went to your school was only half a month ago, not only you guys are living together, you even know about that matter? Brother Zhou doesn’t seem like someone who would move so fast.”
After all, he has been working with Zhou MuHui for three years, and knew his character quite well, so he reacted tardily, and turned around to look at Xin Yi.
“… Do you guys know each other from long ago?”
Xin Yi didn’t think that the misunderstanding would be unraveled here, he looked at Qi Fang who had a blank expression, and immediately felt quite tongue-tied.
“Then the other day, then the other day you went there to find…?”
He spoke in a quiet voice, afraid that it would make Qi Fang sad.
“…” Qi Fang was stunned, leaned against the sofa in a daze, and said after a while, “Fudge, you are actually not my fan…”
It took half a day to understand that it was a misunderstanding, Qi Fang lost the arrogance he had just now, and leaned on the sofa as if life was devoid of meaning.”
“I am your fan from today on.” Xin Yi said in a hurry, “I also have your fan slogan banners, don’t be sad.”
To console Qi Fang, he took out the props he used to follow Zhou MuHui and showed them to Qi Fang.
“Look, I’ve always been your…”
Xin Yi was stuck midway, he thought for a while but couldn’t think of any term for that, Qi Fang looked at him, and said in despair, “Passerby fan?”
“All in all, not a real fan.”
Xin Yi nodded promptly, “I will do my best to become a real fan in the future.”
Qi Fang took the slogan banner, let out a long sigh, and said in a self-defeating voice, “Little kid, the other day went in the auditorium, was it also brother Zhou who brought you in?”
Xin Yi looked at him, and moved back a little.
“Yes.” Qi Fang held his face, “Fudge, I thought you liked me too much, it scared me into taking the front door to leave…”
Only did Xin Yi understand why Qi Fang changed his route at the last moment that day, he pinched his fingers awkwardly, and said, “I only like Zhou MuHui.”
“I know that already, don’t say anything.”
The banner blocked the light, and cut off a bit the sounds, Xin Yi listened to his muffled beg for mercy, ignorantly comforted him, “It’s ok.”
Qi Fang exposed half of his face from behind the banner, and said with complex feelings, “Forget it…”
He spread out the things on his thighs and looked at Xin Yi’s apologetic face, and had another thought.
“Then can you help me to beg for mercy, so even if brother Zhou resigns in the future, he will give me a hand if I have something, is it ok?”
He winked and made signs to him, “Little kid, is it ok?”
Xin Yi was stunned, that was the first time he was officially hearing from others about the matter of Zhou MuHui resigning, he looked at Qi Fang’s face full of smiles, and slowly nodded, “Oh.”
Qi Fang was elated, but Xin Yi seemed like he only returned to his senses, looked at Qi Fang in a daze, and asked, “Why… How come he, he wants to resign?”
His face carried a confused expression, but Qi Fang didn’t notice it.
“Probably earned enough money.” Qi Fang was carefree, and didn’t pay attention to his weird behavior, “He originally joined this line of job to pay off his debt, or else, why would he go all out during all these years.”
“But it’s also his fault for refusing to be a star, or he would have to pay it off eight hundred years ago, and would need to go as far as to almost drink to death for one million.”
Xin Yi widened his eyes, shocked by who knows what, Qi Fang looked at him, and hurriedly corrected, “That was before! After that, I would tell people to stay with him, and he did not drink that fiercely ever again!”
Short for ‘couple’ in Chinese slang Idiom, “死马当活马医” means to make a last attempt in a desperate situation.
