Don’t Be a Kept Man
Chapter 74: When You Become Rich, Don’t Forget About Me
None of them put that day into their hearts, but there were people who had seen the entire thing happen before their eyes, even offhandedly taking some photos and uploading them.
At first it was normal, just nice normal people taking the time to do good things.
But no one expected that because of Chen Xiao Meng’s beauty, the pictures were being reshared nonstop.
Because her leg still had a deep scar from the car accident, Chen Xiao Meng had always worn long dresses to cover up her wound.
In the photos, she was a long haired woman with pale, snow white skin, wearing a light flowy dress in a darker shade of pastel blue.
Compared to other women dressed up with full on makeup, her bare face was already so beautiful that it scratched the hearts of those who looked upon her picture and made all the netizens cry out in reflex that they were witnessing an angel walking on this earth.
>> What kind of ethereal beauty is she? She could just come out as a celebrity without any problems, ok? Refreshing and breathtaking, so out of this world, how much better is she than all those snake monsters!!
>> Wow, what a breathtaking beauty.
I want to go after her, but too bad the lady already has a boyfriend wu wu wu
Reading that comment, everyone realized then that there was a very weak presence of a man in a face mask just in the corner.
Although they couldn’t see his face clearly, his tall body and his cool, cold attitude all but said that he must be a handsome fellow.
Some who were filled with jealousy immediately sprung up, furiously typing comments filled with envy one after another.
>> This wouldn’t be some influencer pair that’s trying to pretend to get some popularity, would it huh.
Seriously, what has not been done for fame anymore.
Some of those who wanted to know the truth immediately searched for security footage for that specific day.
What they found in the footage was Chen Xiao Meng walking with her crutches out of the community gates, which could only mean that she was a resident from the community there.
And that man in the face mask was also always very close beside her, but for some reason he had suddenly left by himself.
And in that period of time, the scene that everyone saw from the photos happened.
Near the end of the video, the man reappeared with two bottles of water and popsicles in his hands.
And when they were trying to help the old man, he had been the one to contact the old man’s family and the one who escorted them onto the taxi afterwards.
Not only that, the man had even stuffed something into the high school girl’s hands before they left, but as the quality wasn’t that great, they couldn’t see what it was.
Only that he waved his hand and left after the girl thanked them and asked for their contact information.
It was clear at this point that there was no possibility of this being staged.
And with Chen Xiao Meng getting internet famous for her beauty, that high school girl posted on weibo to thank them again, stating that her grandpa was a park employee who had fainted due to the heat that day.
Her parents had been out of town for work and when she received the call that day, she had quickly applied for leave from school to go there.
And when she left with her grandpa, the older boy had even given her a hundred yuan to pay for the ride home.
Good things like this will always be accepted and reshared by the general public.
From beginning to end, that man looked so cold but he was really so kind, and adding on that “girlfriend” on crutches being so warm and nice, the netizens felt like there was a cuteness in the contrast.
Drooling over Chen Xiao Meng’s beauty while at the same time, scanning over every and any detail of that man over and over.
Yet the more they looked, the more some netizens found something strange.
Did you guys find that the man’s eyes look a bit like Chen Yi’s.
The both of them have sanpaku eyes, and their aura is like the same, being so cold and so cool, as if there was nothing in the world that would melt him
>> Ah fuck me.
He does look like our Yi-Ge.
Wtf I just became his fan, and he’s already revealed to be in a relationship? Is my wall going to crumble so fast?1
>> LOL the comment above me is making me die from laughter.
Chen Yi has fans?
>> What bro.
I’m his fan, part of the billion million of wealth.
You don’t like it, come at me bro!
Because the weather was quite hot, and it was only walking around their neighbourhood, Chen Yi did not cover himself with a baseball cap.
His aura was too prominent, and those overly sharp eyebrows were all too easily spotted and these kinds of looks don’t naturally appear on everyone.
So those with keen eyes could immediately spot the similarity.
Once they started to pair pictures of Chen Yi with that man from the security footage together, scanning over every detail they could, they found that the similarities was almost more than 90%.
Netizens: My brain has malfunctioned……
# Chen Yi’s Secret Relationship REVEALED, Girlfriend Is A Beauty Out Of This World #
When the netizens had pictures as solid proof, this hashtag did not born out of thin air before taking the fourth rank on the charts.
Everyone was shocked at Chen Yi’s good deed and they were shocked at Chen Xiao Meng’s beauty.
But the most surprising of it all was that these two were actually a pair, and it even looked like they were living together!!
And so this brought along official fan groups blowing up.
Everyone couldn’t stop talking about it and before you could read even one newly sprouted comment, millions more would have already overtaken the screen.
>> I must be the world’s greatest suffering fan.
I just became a fan not even for a weekend and he has already been exposed to being in a relationship.
I feel like I have tortured and scraped off from my own soul.
>> Wowowow, Yi-Ge’s a good guy.
I definitely did not stan the wrong idol.
His girlfriend is so hot, no wonder she hooked Yi-Ge down.
The official fan group leader @ all members and sent out a long post.
But not even three seconds passed before it had already disappeared into the wind.
And so out of necessity, she immediately locked the threads and the world was at peace again.
Ruo Meng: Everyone please listen to me.
Whose family does not have relatives? What if that girl was Yi-Ge’s cousin or sister? Besides, Yi-Ge has not directly acknowledged that he is in a relationship, so everyone, please do not spread rumors and keep your head on you.
Only after waiting for at least ten more minutes to pass, making sure everyone saw it did Ruo Meng unlock the discussions again.
Three seconds later, the screen began to fill up again.
>> I don’t believe it.
They don’t even look alike, so they cannot be relatives.
>> Have not heard that Yi-Ge has a sister tho.
I think that Yi-Ge’s sister must not be as pretty as the girl in the video.
His eyebrows are too sharp.
If it was a guy, he’d be so handsome, but if it was a girl emmm could become a car accident on sight.
The fan group leader immediately went offline.
Chen Xiao Meng didn’t even grab her crutches before limping right over to Chen Yi’s room.
She flipped him out of bed, hurriedly waking him,
“Brother, wake up!”
Chen Yi had studied the film script for the entire night and had slept pretty late because of that.
But hearing her like this, he sat up and yawned before scratching his head, asking with a sleepy look on his face,
Chen Xiao Meng explained everything and shook his shoulders as she said,
“Hurry up and go on weibo and explain.
What if other people misunderstand.”
Chen Yi sighed a deep sigh and he could only go find his phone.
But he then realized that it was already out of battery and he had to find his charger to plug it back in.
After he turned it on, he discovered Fu Xiu Nian, Ning Tong and Ling Dang had tried to call him.
His phone had quite a few photos of him and Chen Xiao Meng together, even of when they were young.
Chen Yi first sent a message to Fu Xiu Nian and then randomly picked a few to upload onto weibo, adding the caption:
>> @Chen Yi: My blood related sister.
(image) (image) (image)
After he posted, he finally had the time to take a look at what happened.
He could only give a high compliment to the netizens with those eyes that could spot him out from that security footage,
These guys are hiding their smarts.
How good would they be if they were detectives.”
Not even the Eastern Bureau spies2 could have been this good.
Because of Chen Yi’s notoriety, that meant that he would not go on weibo frequently.
The few rare occasions being to share or post CFs or sponsorships.
So before long after his post was published, the number of reshares had reached over the thousands, and new hashtags were being created and rising to the top.
Quite a few people did think that Chen Xiao Meng could be Chen Yi’s sister, but as Chen Yi exposed very little of his personal information to the general public, the majority of people did not think towards this direction.
But now that there was evidence from the man himself, it made people curious about his family environment.
The pictures posted on weibo had the picture of them both when they were young, but there was also a picture of them when Chen Xiao Meng was admitted to a university.
There wasn’t much change, but from their faces, netizens could still spot a faint familiarity between the pictures.
Netizens were shocked out of their mind, what kind of DNA flows in their family for them to be this good looking? 360 degrees with no bad angles, no filters, no photoshop and they are to be this hot?
Chen Xiao Meng’s popularity for her beauty had not faded from the internet yet and now it was going up again.
Some handles that wanted to leech onto the fame also started their own topics on this, and those netizens that Chen Yi proclaimed were even stronger than the Eastern Bureau spies were starting their research and examinations again.
>> AHHHHHH AHHHHHH AHHHHH Is that not the C University that I attend in the background behind his sister?! She wouldn’t be my senior or junior would she!! I suffered so much to get admitted in here, so her marks must be so good!!!
>> Yo, the guy before me, perhaps they wanted a picture in front of a good reputable school.
What are you blindly excited for huh.
>> No, she is a graduate of C University, same major as me.
I think she was called Chen Xiao Meng, with the title of the most attractive on campus.
But I heard that she was later involved in quite a serious car accident and thus cut off communication from everyone.
I thought she even passed away emmm
>> Ah? No wonder why she was on crutches.
And her photos show her so much thinner than the previous ones.
The more the netizens started to dig, the more they realized that Chen Xiao Meng had originally stayed in the ICU because of her accident for more than half a year, and her life had been stolen back from the heavens by an inch.
Even though she seemed to have healed, her leg muscles looked to have shrunk and walking was still a big issue.
And throughout all these years, Chen Yi has always been taking care of her.
Some netizens with the same kind of story were bawling out of their eyes at the similarity.
>> My grandma at first had stayed in the hospital because of a car accident and our family was in so much debt because of that.
There was no possibility of healing and how much did I crave for death then.
Chen Yi’s a good man, to have never given up on his sister.
Some antis immediately pushed back:
>> Celebrities and us normal humans are not the same.
How much money would he need to spend huh.
To them, it’s just short change.
Don’t pour your heart out so blindly.
>> Excuse me, you can count on your fingers can you not? Before Chen Xiao Meng was in the car accident, Chen Yi was still an invisible newbie at GE, and he wasn’t even known yet.
How much money could he have? ICU requires at least one thousand yuan a day.
For Chen Xiao Meng to have stayed there for more than half a year, whose family would not have become bankrupt? This doesn’t even count the costs after the stay.
Perhaps he became infamous for his sister.
>> I think you might be onto the truth.
Chen Xiao Meng is of the XXth graduation class.
At that time, Chen Yi had not even signed on to GE for more than a couple of years and he had no widespread name or even be known at all.
It seems like it was only after his sister got into the car accident did he start to become known for his notoriety all over the internet.
Things seemed to be slowly shifting on the internet and Chen Yi had the rare patience to read through all the discussions.
At long last however, he finally shut off his phone and went to Chen Xiao Meng’s room to take a look.
But he only found her sitting in front of her computer, looking like she was learning something about video editing, and he went into the kitchen to bring her a plate of watermelon slices.
Seeing this, Chen Xiao Meng was smiling to the point where her eyes curved up,
“Thank you brother.
Why are you so nice today?”
Chen Yi said,
“Even better in the future.”
He seemed to want to say something else, but those words never came out.
He only ruffled Chen Xiao Meng’s hair and then walked out the door.
Fu Xiu Nian had also seen the trending tags today, but he had remembered Chen Yi had told him not long ago that he had a sister.
And so he didn’t really think much of it, but as he had continually dialed him more than ten times and no one picked up, a seed of suspicion and doubt couldn’t help but form inside him……
With the tools he had, if Fu Xiu Nian wanted to investigate Chen Yi, it was as easy as reciting the ABCs.
But he had not done so before and so he would hold the urge in today too.
Normally at this time, after an hour or so, Chen Yi would be coming over.
Fu Xiu Nian sat by himself on the sofa, his mind flying away for a very long time, before standing up and heading into the kitchen to cook some dishes.
He was making some potato pork bone soup when he recalled that Chen Yi did not like to eat raw ginger.
So he cut the ginger into big chunks, and when the soup was about ready, he went to fish them out.
The pot was going “gu do gu do” as it boiled, and the kitchen was slowly being filled with the faint scent of meat.
Fu Xiu Nian washed his hands in the sink as he thought about the scene where Chen Yi was holding up that girl, possibly his sister, as they walked, and he only thought that the other had never been so gentle with him before.
His heart was feeling a bit sour.
When Fu Xiu Nian saw that the soup was almost ready, he lowered his head to continue cutting potatoes.
His sleeves were pushed up to his elbows, revealing a pair of beautiful, well kept hands, and with one look, one could tell he had lived well, being kept away from heavy duties.
He had never done such chores before but him cooking today, it did look otherwise.
When half the potatoes were cut, the sound of a door opening outside rang out.
But Fu Xiu Nian had been immersed in his thoughts and he hadn’t heard it.
So when he was suddenly embraced from the back, his reflexes almost made him throw the knife.
“What are you thinking about so deeply?”
Chen Yi single handedly held him, and with a flip of his wrist, that knife was in the palm of his hands in a safe grasp.
When Fu Xiu Nian turned over and found that it was Chen Yi, he sighed a breath of relief and quickly took the knife to throw it aside,
“Why didn’t you let me know beforehand if you were coming over.
Scared me out of my mind.”
Chen Yi’s hand that was by his waist slowly slid downwards and squeezed on a certain area.
He smiled fakely,
“Why did you buy your cellphone, hmm? Did I not send you a message before I came?”
Since Fu Xiu Nian had called Chen Yi fifty million times today and no one answered, he did not have the heart to look at his cellphone.
He didn’t even know about Chen Yi’s clarification post.
He only muttered out,
“I didn’t see……”
Chen Yi loved Fu Xiu Nian and his dumb and blanked out look, looking so easily bullied.
He kissed him on the cheek and then slowly bit Fu Xiu Nian’s ears that looked like they were bleeding.
He said in a low tone by his ear,
“I accepted a film offer and I’m going to head to the filming site next month.
I probably wouldn’t be able to come by for a while.”
Fu Xiu Nian was growing faint from his actions and hearing this, turned around to wrap his arms around Chen Yi’s neck.
He lifted up his head, asking in a half serious, half joking manner,
“What if I think of you? What should I do?”
Chen Yi said,
“Come find me.”
“Did you see the headlines today?”
Fu Xiu Nian paused,
“I saw it……”
Chen Yi continued to kiss him on his slightly pursed lips,
“That is my sister.
I had slept a bit later yesterday and I didn’t wake up this morning, so I didn’t get to pick up your calls.”
So it was like that.
Fu Xiu Nian slightly lowered his eyes and then tightly grasped onto Chen Yi’s neck,
It’s just that you didn’t answer your phone, so I was a little worried.”
Chen Yi grabbed a cherry tomato off the fruit platter and played with it, throwing it up and catching it a few times, saying without fear,
“What are you afraid of? Afraid that my mouth’s gonna get my head chopped off?”
Fu Xiu Nian smiled,
“You have a lot of fans now.
Who is going to dare to chop your head off? From now on, I will need to lean on you and ask for your support.
Yi-Ge, don’t forget about me when you become rich.”
Chen Yi slightly tilted up his eyebrows,
“Alright, won’t forget about you.”
Fu Xiu Nian calmly lowered his eyes and squeezed Chen Yi’s earlobes.
He softly asked,
“When you become more famous, will you throw me away?”
There were many examples of this in the entertainment industry.
Those who gain the ability to go higher, to expose themselves to an even higher level, they will kick off their original partner and find someone new.

*1 Similar to “cheating” by climbing a wall, in this case the wall is like the celebrity/your dedication in liking the celebrity.
So when it “crumbles” it means theres no reason to like the celebrity anymore/there was no point/your like for the celebrity has “crumbled”.
*2 Eastern Bureau spies: This is specifically a division of the Ming dynasty and doesn’t have the greatest reputation, but they were a division like spies that only needed to report to the Emperor and no matter what other departments or officials, they couldn’t dictate what happens within that bureau, and they had basically had the power to arrest anyone based on treason.
Their leader is an eunuch appointed by the Emperor, and they have their own divisions for interrogation, soldiers/police force, prison and mainly kept an eye on the officials/wealthy merchants.
They are usually painted in movies as the bad guys as they were pretty infamous/notorious as they were usually painted/condemned as making cases up/assigning treason to people who haven’t committed treason, etc.
There’s more but as a very quick overview, think of them like spies for the country/govt, like James Bond etc., and only doing good for what’s considered good for the person in charge.
