Don’t Be a Kept Man
Chapter 87: In My Next Life, I Want to Meet With You Again
“People will grow old, and each person’s prime only lasts for a short amount of time, maybe ten years or so.
I hope that in that period, in what’s considered the best years of their lives, they don’t blindly choose someone as their role model and they are able to chase after someone who is worth being followed.
Learn whatever they can from them, whether that be generosity, bravery, justice, that is the most meaningful……”
“There are too many negatives in this world, and each of us leads a different life, experience through different hardships, bringing our own thoughts and minds into this world, and then our personality, our burgeoning cleverness to go beyond gets ground down by life and disappears…… But humans must always look up and head forward, because if you have the willpower and strength to continue, it’s not because of the people who will try and stop you on your path, but your journey is for that person that has always been waiting for you at the finish line.”
“I don’t hope that when my fans take a step outside into the world, others will say, besides looks and being good with words to refute back at people, their idol cannot do anything else…… To like, that is of logic and control, slowly turning excellent because of the other.”
It was the first time that Chen Yi had said these kinds of words in front of the camera, and the female interviewer had been listening very intently, when he waved with his palms facing outwards,
“…… Actually I don’t like to say so many words of common logic, because the majority of people know and understand yet they just can’t do it.
So it really depends on the person.”
The female interviewer slightly nodded her head, signalling her agreement, and then she continued to ask,
“Actually, you and Fu Xiu Nian have quite a big contrast in personality, so much so that most netizens don’t think well of your relationship together.
Do you have any thoughts on this?”
Chen Yi: “Hmm, I know.
They say that I don’t look like a good wife.”
This sentence coming from him made the room lose control and the female interviewer almost laughed out loud.
But she only coughed lightly a few times and held it in,
“Just by seeing your interactions today, I actually think you both have personalities that fit quite well together.
For two people to be together, a lot rides on being able to compromise, as after all happy or not, only you yourself will know.
Just like drinking water, only you would know if it is warm or cold.”
The show was at its end, and after the filming crew asked a few more short questions, the interview ended.
When Chen Yi walked out of the room, he saw Fu Xiu Nian’s chubby nephew throwing a tantrum, rolling and wailing on the floor.
His mouth kept yelling nonstop,
“No I won’t go back nonono!”.
Apparently Fu Si Ping had called and said that he was almost at their house.
The chubby kid was crying so pitifully and hiccuping as he wailed,
“Uncle, you betrayed me! You said you wouldn’t call my dad wu wu wu!”
Fu Xiu Nian helplessly sat on the couch, letting him cry.
And at this time, the doorbell rang and Chen Yi directly lifted the chubby kid up from the ground, saying in a tone filled with annoyance and disgust,
“The phone call was from me.
Hurry up and leave with your dad.”
The front door opened and outside stood a man dressed in a suit.
His face was fairly similar to Fu Xiu Nian’s and behind him stood two bodyguards.
Fu Si Ping gave a greeting to Chen Yi and Fu Xiu Nian and then apologetically said,
“I’ve troubled you both today.
I had a meeting I needed to attend, so I didn’t have time to take care of him.”
Fu Xiu Nian, with a slight headache, said,
“Watch him more closely next time.
A child running outside by himself is very dangerous.
If he failed his exams, teach him slowly and don’t hit him.”
We won’t bother you both anymore when you’re filming,”
Fu Si Ping held onto his chubby son who was flailing nonstop and said,
“Brother, I will take my leave first then.
We’ll come to your house another day to play.”
After Fu Si Ping left, the house finally quieted down.
The filming crew looked at each other, feeling like this brother of Fu Xiu Nian, Fu Si Ping, who just appeared, looked very familiar, but they couldn’t recall who he was.
But following their usual procedure, their filming concluded for the day.
Next Saturday, << Unexpected Encounter With You >> aired on time and with this rare series of events combining the three unlikely pairs onto one show, their fans all congregated to watch.
Of the couples, the idol, Xiao Kai Chun and his girlfriend Yang Fei, had the most controversy.
When they first appeared, without anything even happening on screen, the fans had already torn each other apart into shreds.
The two of them were evidently in their honeymoon phase and so it was almost a necessity for them to be hugging and kissing.
The especially affectionate displays were leaking out of the monitors and stabbing right into the fans’ hearts.
When it was noon, the program crew sent its mission card, the two tickets and the hundred yuan allowance, hoping they would be able to share an unforgettable day on their outdoor date.
Xiao Kai Chun and Yang Fei had something similar to a sister and brother relationship, with an age gap of about six years or so.
So when it came to doing things, they would naturally have a difference in opinions.
They both chose to go by taxi, but because Xiao Kai Chun estimated the wrong fare, they couldn’t pay and had to leave in the middle of the ride.
Yang Fei had a confused look on her face,
“I have already said that we should take the bus, so why did you insist on the taxi? Now we still have so much road left to go between us and the destination.
Were you hoping that we would walk over there?”
Xiao Kai Chun seemed to feel like he lost some of his face, and he couldn’t keep the smile that he always wore in front of the camera.
With a cold face and no sound uttered from him, he walked away, only caring about himself and leaving Yang Fei behind, breaking that moment of affectionate love they had before.
Fans who only support their idol and not their relationship: Ho ho, can’t pretend anymore eh? Break up early.
For the entire rest of the road, they kept fighting with each other, until they coincidentally bumped into a nice fan who drove them there, which finally broke the ice.
However after experiencing the pain of getting there, new problems arose.
Because they had used up their expenses for the taxi ride, they didn’t have money for anything else, and so lunch and dinner were just empty stomachs.
Even through the barrier of the screen, it was not hard to tell that they were wearing forced smiles on their faces.
The female and male MCs sighed as they watched them and made a brief statement,
“It can be seen that Kai Chun needs a bit more growth in his maturity.
Perhaps it is due to age, but Yang Fei is a bit more stable, more mature.
Hopefully she will be able to balance out Kai Chun.
But young adults, for them, they will have a hard time escaping the scrapes and burns, but through their fights, feelings should build up.”
Chen Yi and Fu Xiu Nian’s portion was edited to be in the second part and at this time, for whatever reason, whether it be their CP fans or antis, all had their eyes glued to the screen, unblinking, ready and extremely interested in watching how they interacted in private.
The camera first showed off Fu Xiu Nian’s home: a warm undertone, clean and bright windows, with regular household items like brushes or slippers or even cups all in pairs.
The fish tank had a few goldfish and there were a couple pots of fermented food on the windowsill, bringing a huge sense of “this is home”.
Some fans couldn’t help but comment, This is my dream home wu wu wu
The female MC, Xiao Xiao, as per protocol completed a short interview segment.
The two of them were sitting on the sofa and Chen Yi still had that lazy composure.
Fu Xiu Nian discreetly kicked him under the table but it was avoided easily, with Chen Yi even sending along a conceited smile.
This small action was caught by the majority of the people, and the viewers could see very clearly.
They hadn’t done anything but there was a feeling of sweetness wafting through their monitors.
Xiao Xiao: “Do you two usually have a set list of house chores split clearly between the both of you, like washing dishes or cooking? Is it on shifts of responsibility or do you hire a housekeeper?”
Chen Yi: “Dishes and cooking are all him.
I’m a bit lazy.”
Fu Xiu Nian added,
“Lifting heavy things that kind of household chore that requires strength are all his.”
Antis couldn’t help but jump up at that.
Were they not the same as Xiao Kai Chun and Yang Fei? One endlessly and unregretfully pouring everything they had and the other comfortably enjoying what was given.
Fu Xiu Nian was too pitiful hu hu.
Chen Yi fans immediately refuted back: Shut your X mouth.
Were you a mute in your previous life huh? Sprouting shit when you’re just watching a variety show.
Don’t watch it if you’re just going to sprout useless words.
You can call for your brother then I can call for mine.
Let’s see who goes down first!
Chen Yi fans were well known for their bad tempers.
The gang of them could catch an anti and tear them apart until their lists of accomplishments in battle grew by a full page.
So the antis could only wave their flag for a brief rest.
The next mission Xiao Xiao had sent was to switch their duties.
Chen Yi could only go and do as ordered and under the camera’s special editing, the viewers witnessed a blackhole wandering into the kitchen and a new expression king being born.
Chen Yi put the washed cucumbers onto the chopping board and then tested his strength with the knife.
“Bang” he brought it down and anyone with eyes could see that the cucumber immediately turned into mush.
Fu Xiu Nian’s face twitched and he slowly turned his head around, his face looking very complicated.
The fans rofl: Puh hahahahahaha you know, you know what.
You scared Fu Xiu Nian into an expression sticker hahahahahaha!
After Chen Yi ruined the cold mixed cucumber salad, he continued without a pause to ruin the omelettes.
It was also at this time that the door suddenly opened and in walked a beautiful young lady on crutches.
Her beauty was one of a refreshing and ethereal sense with her hair down to her waist.
Those with sharp eyes could recognize that this was Chen Yi’s sister, Chen Xiao Meng.
>> Fuck Fuck, it’s little miss angel!!! AH AH AH AH AH AH AH Chen Yi is my brother-in-law from now on!!! Rejecting all oppositions!
>> Hey you before me, you want to eat shit? You want to marry his sister, beat Chen Yi first.
Those with clear eyes would see that this family got along.
When Fu Xiu Nian and Chen Xiao Meng both looked towards Chen Yi with their faces looking like they were going through the worst suffering of their lives, the viewers’ faces unconsciously lightened up, bringing a bit of a smile onto their faces.
When they heard them roast back at each other, it was an even more merrier time.
>> Puha hahahaha how terrible is Chen Yi’s food? The moment his sister walks through the door, she automatically orders takeout.
What a pair of siblings, how real!
>> Feeling as if they are an old couple.
No deliberate PDAs, just the calm, warm kind, what can I do.
>> His sister didn’t eat any food, sure fine.
Now she’s got to be stuffed in the face with dogfood too.
Too sweet!!! Xiu Xiu is gentle and so meek but Yi Ge is so tender and precious towards him.
When he found out that Xiu Xiu was having a hard time cooking, he automatically suggested taking turns in the future.
And then the next couple of scenes were pretty much the same as the other couple before them, of Xiao Kai Chun and Yang Fei.
The film crew gave them the same hundred yuan bill and two attraction tickets.
Although they were the same events, the two pairs of couples were as different as heaven and hell.
Chen Yi very clearly showed everyone how to be shrewd and smart.
Normally you spend money at an attraction park, and everyone thought they would have to count their pennies to last through the day.
Yet when Chen Yi rode on that bike to earn money the viewers’ jaws were already dropping off, internally thinking, What the fuck, you can do this?!
In reality, Chen Yi was very good to Fu Xiu Nian, but that wasn’t on full display.
His kindness and love was in the details.
Some sharp eyed fans found that when they were eating ramen, he gave Fu Xiu Nian the more expensive black pepper sausage and he ate the normal kind.
He had even bought Fu Xiu Nian a yogurt drink just for him.
Even when Fu Xiu Nian wanted to play hoops, he directly gave him a hundred yuan to let him play until he got sick of it.
>> Sweet, so sweet my teeth are going to fall out.
Wu Wu Wu, I want this kind of boyfriend too.
Normally bullies you but is really good to you discreetly.
Yi-Ge as a boyfriend, your level is maxed out!!
>> In love, I’m in love.
It must be so fortunate to be with Yi-Ge, this kind of man.
Responsible and owns up to things, doesn’t let his partner suffer, how much better is he than Xiao Kai Chun.
Xiu Xiu is also willing to pour out his love and do anything but Yi-Ge is also willing to treasure and cherish him.
Yi-Ge the girl’s world has arrived!!
Chen Yi reached out to hug Fu Xiu Nian from behind, teaching him move by move how to throw the hoop.
His cold face was handsome and sexy, his voice was arousing, dousing too many people with sugar.
And so when the game stall owner started to cheat his way out of their earnings, the fans were about to blow up in anger.
What the fuck this is my CP winning a love token for their relationship.
You dare to underscore them?! You bastard, give me your life! (holds up an 18ft sword)
If it were any other person, perhaps they might have just swallowed this loss.
But when fans heard the conversation between Chen Yi and Fu Xiu Nian, they felt it wasn’t that simple.
Fu Xiu Nian: “Don’t care about him.
If a dog bites you, are you going to bite it back?”
Chen Yi: “Bite? I can’t bite him to death.”
Chen Yi the back talker.
This was something everyone knew about.
The majority of the viewers thought that he was just going to have a word battle with the stall owner, but instead Chen Yi only started counting the hoops he had left, and then his wrist moved with strength, landing the hoop right on the last item, smooth and fast.
Before the audience could even say “Wow”, another hoop was thrown and also landed perfectly onto an item.
While others may have needed a few more glances to correct their aim, Chen Yi was throwing as easily and simply as chopping chives.
When the last item was hooped up, the viewers’ faces were like the owner’s, just as numb.
>> Wow, what a society man my Yi-Ge is.
I won’t say much to hurt, but stall owner, oh stall owner, why did you start this mess with this kind of man……
>> Please excuse this lowly educated human, but wow what the fuck.
Yi-Ge is amazing.
Thankfully he did not have a sword in his hand as otherwise he would have chopped the stall owner into pieces.
>> What a risk to open up a stall.
Hide when you see this kind of man.
The scene where a fan recognized them was not cut out and when she was jumping in excitement at having met Fu Xiu Nian and Chen Yi, her eyes were shining, glistening with joy.
The fans as viewers felt as if they saw a copy of themselves and they were all wu wu wu, jealous and envious but not resentful.
The night was falling and Chen Yi directly dropped a load of money to buy a skewer of grilled meat, which as everyone knew, attraction park food prices were not cheap.
Compared to the poor previous group who could only eat the wind for their meals, they were too blessed to be able to chow down on meat.
Viewers: Sisters, did you see.
If you find a partner see how important it is to find someone so dependable! Underline and bold on IMPORTANT!
The scenic night view wasn’t that quiet and cold.
With the lanterns and the lake reflecting the little dotted lights, when Fu Xiu Nian had that feeling of nostalgia, fans who had been following along on their journey had the same feeling.
Time was like this.
When you were in the midst of the experience, you wouldn’t have realized it, but when you turned back, you would have found yourself surprised at how very very far you have already walked.
The backdrop was a bright shining field of fireworks, and this scenic view was most definitely romantic to the max.
When Chen Yi smiled and brought out that candy bouquet to present to Fu Xiu Nian, his sharp eyes had seemed to have been blown tender by the lakeside night wind.
Fu Xiu Nian’s eyes were glistening and perhaps that was the reflection of the fireworks in the sky, or maybe it was the tears in his eyes.
Fans suddenly recalled that summer night one year ago, when the two of them stood there in the courtyard doorway, absorbing all that wind, and with the trees swaying in the background, Fu Xiu Nian had given Chen Yi the gift of a candy.
It’s been said that life was a cycle.
When humans die, they become dust and after millions and billions of years, they will form back again in the universe.
In the billions of people alive on this earth, to be able to meet with someone you love wholeheartedly in this life, how lucky were you……
When fans saw them smiling and embracing each other, they teared up.
And then when Chen Yi started counting with his fingers and found that they still had 200 yuan, that moving moment of heartwarming feelings suddenly turned into an unbelievable amount of giving up and accepting that he was just that great.
>> I’m not going to say anything, really really.
My knees are just chopped off now, so how do I send them to Chen Yi?
>> Business genius!! What the motherfucking- I would bow down to him.
Xiao Kai Chun and Yang Fei had walked until they were almost crippled, starving until their eyes could turn green, and Chen Yi’s earnings are more than my one day of work.
What the motherfucking fuck! That’s amazing!!
>> This is just saying again, how really really important it is to find a dependable partner! Kneeling down!
Even though the third couple had not appeared yet, the viewers could already tell that there would not be a pair that could beat this couple’s sweetness.
They watched Chen Yi and Fu Xiu Nian ride the car to go home, and as the two of them bickered, there was a heartwarming feeling welling up from the little details of their love, how stable, how quiet but strong, how calming.
When they reached home, the viewers laughed and laughed again at Chen Xiao Meng being angered by the chubby kid.
Spoiled brats definitely had a strong method of wearing you down, and her angelic image finally could not be kept up.
When the program was near its end, and they were in the bedroom, completing their final thoughts, the words of Chen Yi made people think a lot.
Looks will follow the passage of time and fade away, but the aspects of a good personality would not.
After many tests and hurdles, through time, it will be like pearls in the sand, burning brighter than ever.
There were some things, time could take away.
Fans were willing to expend their energy and efforts for their idols, so Chen Yi was also willing to work harder to become better for them.
He wished, that in this meaningful age, they didn’t like someone for no reason, didn’t like someone only to be lied to.
With the passage of time, hopefully they would be able to learn something from him.
Then when the fans grow old one day, and they don’t chase after idols anymore, as they watch their grandchildren toddling away, and they watch a new set of idols coming onto the entertainment scene, perhaps they would recall the idols they had once liked before.
Looks, probably would not be remembered clearly, but he must have been hot, handsome.
And he’s very very good, strong, persevering, and kind.
Although his face wouldn’t be remembered but they would have remembered that they worked hard for him, worked hard to become someone as excellent as he was.
That was enough……
Many fans who were easily moved couldn’t hold in their tears.
They saw Chen Yi’s hardworking efforts, and the year that he worked so hard on his acting.
All for his fans, stepping slowly but surely to become better, trying to become a better role model.
Fu Xiu Nian was being interviewed in the living room, but perhaps because of his chubby nephew’s cries, it was stopped in the middle.
Fans were on one hand crying and looking at the monitor, hoping to catch everything, and on the other, watching Fu Xiu Nian appear on the screen, his handsome face comforting their slightly hurt feelings, and taking away some of the attention.
>> The brothers’ auras are so different.
They don’t look very much alike, but if you look closer, you could see some similarities.
>> His younger brother looks like a smart businessman.
Full suit ensemble, and I even spotted some bodyguards behind him.
>> Wow his younger brother has that boss feeling.
A few days ago << The Wealth of the World >> had their weekly report and wasn’t it on the Fu Corporation’s CEO…Those two look too similar hahahaha
The moment this comment appeared on screen, those viewers who saw it fell into a deep silence.
And the one who posted seemed to have realized after posting that Fu Xiu Nian’s brother should also have the surname Fu.
Three seconds later, their fingers trembled as they posted another comment……
>> Can’t be right.
There are too many people with the same name in this world.
There are so many who have the surname Ma, so many with Li, so there must be a lot with Fu…….
>> But same name and looks about the same……?
The chubby kid just said it too.
His father was called Fu Si Ping.
