CEFYMA: Chapter 21

You Mian gripped the doorknob. He raised his eyes and asked, “Chairman Pei, is there anything else?”

In front of him, You Mian held the door with one hand. His semi-wet chestnut hair was drooping on his forehead. His whole body was moist, and he exuded the fresh breath after a shower.

Pei Huaiji’s gaze paused slightly.

The man seemed a bit tired. He raised a hand and tugged at his tie. The loose neckline relieved Pei Huaiji’s stern appearance. He lightly pinched the bridge of his nose, shook his head, and said, “It’s fine. Have a good rest.”

Pei Huaiji nodded lightly to You Mian after speaking and walked to his room.

Seeing that Pei Huaiji was gone, You Mian no longer had any scruples. He directly slammed shut the door in front of Yun Guanqing.

Yun Guanqing was once again blocked by the door and couldn’t help laughing angrily.

He approached the door panel, raised his hand, and knocked twice.

Yun Guanqing knew that You Mian could hear him, so he warned in a loud voice, “You Mian, this is the second time.”


You Mian ignored what Yun Guanqing said through the door. He picked up the thin towel he had just used to wipe his hair and put a cover over the camera in the room. He set the alarm clock and slept until the afternoon.

By the time he woke up again, he heard the other guests talking in the living room outside the door.

Listening to the voices, it wasn’t difficult to judge that it was Guan Tong and Shen Nanxiao.

The black sweatshirt wasn’t stained with clay, but You Mian got up and changed without haste.

The young man took out the Bluetooth headset from his bag and put it in his left ear. He wore a loose orange sports jacket, and the comfortable black overalls lined his straight and slender legs.

At first glance, there was clear vitality. It was like a cluster of scorching sun, a warm sun.

[There are billions of stars in the Milky Way galaxy.]

[One of them is our sun…]

The documentary-style lecture in standard American English explained everything about the universe.

You Mian pushed open the door and walked out of the room, his expression as usual.

However, no one knew that his heart was completely away from the upcoming date. He only listened carefully to the popular science documentary coming from his earphone, racing against time to absorb new inspiration that could be used in the sculpting.

The two people sitting on the sofa in the living room heard the sound and turned around.

The moment Guan Tong saw it was You Mian, he jumped up happily and asked, “You Mian, how was your rest?”

You Mian smiled softly. “It isn’t bad.”

Guan Tong affectionately grabbed You Mian’s arm and whispered interesting stories about their lunch with the other guests at noon.

Guan Tong’s pink hair on top of his head was fluffy, and the makeup on his face was delicate and clean. His lip stain was shiny, and his foundation was light.

He still had three or four red stud earrings hanging on his ears. It was very flamboyant and individual in the camera.

The blogger’s freelance nature meant Guan Tong had a rest in the morning. He seemed livelier than others at this time.

“Fortunately, Brother Huo and Nanxiao helped me, or I wouldn’t know how to cook this meal.” Guan Tong stuck out his tone and smiled slightly apologetically.

You Mian remembered that it was Guan Tong’s turn to cook lunch today.

Guan Tong walked beside You Mian and said, “Brother Huo’s boxing match and Nanxiao’s cello tour have just ended. It is rare for the two of them to be very free right now, so they helped me cook lunch.”

Guan Tong turned sideways, clasped his hands together, and smiled at Shen Nanxiao. “Thank you, Brother Shen, for saving my life.”

His expression was lively and cute.

Shen Nanxiao wore a cyan casual outfit and walked not far behind the two people. He said gently when he heard this, “It’s okay. I just happened to be free recently. I like to cook, and it doesn’t bother me.”

The house was empty. You Mian frowned and asked doubtfully, “What about the others?”

He woke up before the alarm clock went off. It was impossible for him to be late.

Guan Tong pointed outside the house and smiled. “It seems that the time on the date card given to the lily of the valley guests is ten minutes earlier than us. They are all waiting outside.”

“As for Bai Lin…” Guan Tong wrinkled his nose. “It seems he hasn’t finished tidying up yet. Let’s go first.”

The moment Guan Tong’s words fell, the three of them walked out of the house and saw four cars parked on the soft white sand.

Sure enough, the four lily of the valley guests were all standing by the car door at this moment. They were all handsome.

Their expressions changed a bit when seeing the iris guests come out of the house.

Yan Tingxuan and Huo Yanzhi stood beside the doors of the last two cars. They held cards for the rounded lines group in their hands.

Yun Guanqing and Pei Huaiji were standing beside the doors of the first two cards.

Facing the three iris guests who came out of the flower garden outside the courtyard of the house, Yun Guanqing raised his hand and snapped his fingers. His indistinguishable eyes stared straight at You Mian as he invited this person. “Get in the car!”

The sea breeze blew, and long hair flew.

You Mian’s earpiece happened to talk about the birth of a star.

He couldn’t deny that Yun Guanqing’s extremely gorgeous facial features were attractive.

However, You Mian also couldn’t deny that Yun Guanqing’s temper was more distracting than his looks.

A good skin but a rotten temper.

Therefore, You Mian smiled softly in the direction of the camera before going straight to Pei Huaiji’s car.

Yun Guanqing was silent for a moment.

Yun Guanqing: “……”

Seeing You Mian really get into another car, Yun Guanqing leaned against the car door with one hand. He twisted his leather shoes and gritted his teeth. “It is good.”

The four guests were divided into groups, two in each car.

Seeing You Mian finally getting into Pei Huaiji’s car, Guan Tong couldn’t help but quietly sigh with relief. He chose to go to Yun Guanqing’s car door.

Compared to Yun Guanqing’s vicious tongue, Guan Tong was still more afraid of Pei Huaiji’s ice cube face!

After all, Yun Guanqing wasn’t a person who would take his temper out on innocent people. The situation had been decided, so he could only wear sunglasses and sit in the car without saying a word.

Guan Tong went to put on his seat belt with a trembling heart. Then after a few seconds, his nervous mood was swept away. It was because the person sitting next to him now was Yun Guanqing!

Guan Tong was a fan of Yun Guanqing. He had watched countless movies and TV series. He had even watched the online signing event.

Now that he was really sitting in Yun Guanqing’s front passenger seat, Guan Tong’s heart was beating uncontrollably.

This was the first date since the recording of the show started! It was also the first date after sending the heartbeat text message!

After last night’s heartbeat text message, the heartbeat of all the guests was much clearer.

Guan Tong was very curious about who the others sent it to, but he couldn’t ask directly according to the rules of the house. He could only quietly observe some clues during lunch.

Shen Nanxiao looked dignified and gentle. The only guests he had communicated with more in the past two days were Yan Tingxuan and Huo Yanzhi.

Guan Tong knew that Shen Nanxiao and Yan Tingxuan had known each other before, but judging by their performance in the house, Shen Nanxiao didn’t seem to pay special attention to Yan Tingxuan.

If Shen Nanxiao sent a text message to Huo Yanzhi…

Huo Yanzhi’s figure appeared in Guan Tong’s mind. Then Shen Nanxiao appeared.

However, these two people were more like good friends than guests who liked each other.

Guan Tong frowned in confusion. It was too difficult to guess!

On the other hand, the emotional line of Bai Lin was too simple. It was so simple that Guan Tong didn’t need to guess which guests sent a message to Bai Lin.

Yan Tingxuan had been very close to Bai Lin since he entered the house. Huo Yanzhi might’ve shown some attention to You Mian in the beginning, but the person he communicated most frequently with in the end was Bai Lin.

These two lily of the valley guests must’ve sent the heartbeat text message to Bai Lin.

Guan Tong nervously looked at Yun Guanqing beside him.

Yun Guanqing should’ve also sent it to Bai Lin…

As a small fan, his heart couldn’t help feeling a bit sour when thinking about this.

Guan Tong sighed. Unknowingly, he had already put You Mian and Pei Huaiji in a two-way heartbeat position.

Based on Pei Huaiji’s cold face, few guests of the house dared to talk to him except for You Mian.

During the car selection process just now, Guan Tong almost died of fear and had prayed that You Mian would sit in Pei Huaiji’s car.

The result actually came true. You Mian really didn’t seem afraid of Pei Huaiji.

Pei Huaiji had changed into a black coat, but he still looked restrained and domineering. The taciturn man turned around and got into the car without saying a word.

It wasn’t until You Mian sat on the front passenger seat and fastened his seat belt that Pei Huaiji’s voice sounded lazily through the car.

“Using me as a shield has become easier and smoother.” Pei Huaiji’s eyes narrowed. He slightly raised an eyebrow. “Student You.”

There was a click, and the seat belt buckled.

You Mian raised a hand to press against his left earpiece. The science lecture that had been ringing in his ears finally stopped at this moment and quieted down.

“I thought we had reached a consensus,” You Mian said with a calm face and heartbeat.

Pei Huaiji’s big hands with bulging veins and his tight arm muscles were on the steering wheel. He showed a sense of strength that couldn’t be ignored.

Pei Huaiji’s eyes dimmed when he heard these words. He asked, “When did that happen”?”

You Mian casually replied, “Last night.”

“The director asked if he could use the shots of the two of us. Chairman Pei, you agreed.”

Pei Huaiji paused for a few seconds when he heard this. In this gap, he saw the rear car driving out quickly.

You Mian realized that he was now letting Pei Huaiji be the driver for a while. This type of opportunity was rare.

Pei Huaiji drove like his personality. He was serious and calm, rational enough to not make a single mistake.

Pei Huaiji was silent for a few minutes before suddenly saying, “Since you will repeat the behavior of pulling me as a shield in the future, we should regulate it.”

You Mian really couldn’t hold back his smile, and he looked at Pei Huaiji with crooked eyes.

The young man turned sideways and opened the window. The wind from outside brushed against his face, and his unkempt chestnut hair gently swept over his eyes, eyebrows, and forehead.

He looked chic and bright.

You Mian asked, “Chairman Pei, do you want to sign a contract with me?”

Pei Huaiji’s eyes trembled when he heard this. A very shallow smile appeared on his face.

“Not at all,” he replied. “I just want to know how far you need me as a shield.”

You Mian looked at Pei Huaiji with slight surprise. “I remember Chairman Pei saying that you aren’t a philanthropist.”

Pei Huaiji’s hand holding the steering wheel tightened.

The man’s Adam’s apple moved as he said in a deep voice, “JL also has an independent charitable foundation.”

“Moreover, I am very tolerant and patient with talented people.”

Pei Huaiji’s tone was sincere. It didn’t seem fake.

You Mian knew that with Pei Huaiji’s personality, he wouldn’t bother to say such appeasing words. What came out of his mouth must be his true thoughts.

You Mian raised an eyebrow. He no longer deliberately concealed it and laughed in a refreshing manner.

He hadn’t expected Pei Huaiji to be so interesting.

He thought this person was an old-fashioned glacier. Unexpectedly, Pei Huaji had such a human side.

“Hint in advance when you need my help.” Pei Huaiji never fought unprepared battles.

You Mian pressed a hand between his brow and made a frowning motion. “I’ll do this to you, okay?”

Pei Huaiji glanced at You Mian before saying lightly, “Change to another one.”

You Mian was stunned for a moment.

The next second, he heard Pei Huaiji’s voice in the car.

“It should be the type of smile that shows eight teeth.”

“My genius.”

    Poor Guan Tong, it must be hard being the only sane extrovert in the group.
    Every time You Mian makes Yun Guanqing even the slightest annoyed, I imagine his brow twitching. I’m waiting until he explodes a vein.

    It’s a “good” thing Yun Guanqing has a naturally perverted personality because it keeps me at *almost* feeling bad for him.

    I mean, he didn’t even meet YM until this show. So, he doesn’t actually understand why\that YM wants nothing to do with him, lol
