Thank you so much for the ko-fi, Klancain! ♡♡♡


Chapter 43.2 – Pressure Play

Qin Chen helped Xu Jian out of the siege. The latter watched him pull his hand without struggling and obediently followed him.

Only when he reached Qin Chen’s exclusive personal lounge did Qin Chen let go of Xu Jian’s wrist, then turned to look at him and asked:

“Who was that person just now? Why is he looking for you?”

Xu Jian: “Hmm?”

Xu Jian was a bit amused and spit in his heart——

Brother, you scolded him yet you don’t even know who the other person is?

Qin Chen spoke out, “Because his eyes kept turning when he looked at you. He has sneaky eyebrows that it didn’t feel good when he looked at you.”

Xu Jian froze for a second after listening then realized that he didn’t pay attention to what he had in mind just now.

Now that all the words in his heart are out, there is also no need for Xu Jian to hide them. He looked at Qin Chen with a smile:

“I didn’t expect you to be able to read faces ah.”

Qin Chen shook his head. “No, I just have the basic ability to distinguish people.”

Xu Jian heard it. He is aware that Qin Chen is beating around the bush and saying that he lacks basic recognition skills.

He also found that Qin Chen’s attitude towards him and towards Milk is not the same at all.

To Milk, there are all kinds of patience, kisses, hugs, and lifting him high, but to him, he is hostile when there’s disagreement with each other.

Obviously, the difference between Milk and him is only a fur, why is there such a difference in treatment?

Seeing Xu Jian looking at him in a trance with a complicated face and not knowing what he was thinking, Qin Chen couldn’t help but raise his hand and stretch out his index finger to poke him on the forehead:

“What are you thinking? I asked you a question.”

Xu Jian leaned his head back thinking that this treatment is really different. Qin Chen has never poked the cat’s head with this force!

Thinking of this, Xu Jian unconsciously flattened his mouth and explained:

“That was He Jia’s agent just now. I don’t know why he’s looking for me.”

“He Jia?” The name quickly filtered through his mind. Qin Chen immediately put the name with a corresponding face and asked:

“Didn’t you say you and He Jia don’t know each other well? Why is his agent looking for you?

Xu Jian shook his head. “I just don’t know ah.”

However, after thinking about it for a while, Xu Jian still told Qin Chen about his recent discovery that something was wrong with He Jia and Brother Qing, as well as what he had eavesdropped on last time. 

Currently, in Xu Jian’s heart, Qin Chen can be ranked in the top three of his most trusted people, so there are no qualms when talking about this.

After all, even Qin Chen knew about such a big thing as being a cat and a man. It isn’t a bad thing or two.

After listening to the whole context, Qin Chen said in a firm tone:

“According to you, they should have done something wrong to you and even got some kind of benefit from it, which is why they feel so nervous and guilty when they see you.”

Xu Jian frowned when he heard the words. “Honestly, I also thought so……”

After a pause, Xu Jian continued, “But I really can’t figure out what He Jia has to do with me.”

Qin Chen said, “This is easy to handle, just find someone to investigate it.”

Xu Jian asked Qin Chen how to investigate this kind of thing and the latter said he didn’t have to worry about it. He will find someone to investigate it and will tell him when he had the results.

Xu Jian’s heart was warm, not knowing why with Qin Chen’s words, he instantly felt a lot more at ease.

Looking at Qin Chen, Xu Jian sincerely thanked him. “Thank you. I have to trouble you again because of my matter.”

In just a few months, he owed Qin Chen too many favors.

Perhaps……some of them should be considered as cat love?

But why was the words cat love sound so weird?

Why does it feel like it’s giving off an air of impropriety?

Qin Chen didn’t know what was in Xu Jian’s mind, but his eyes suddenly flashed and his expression became a little unnatural.

Thinking that Xu Jian was troubling and bothering him again about this matter, so he said:

“What’s the trouble with that, but it’s you——”

As soon as the conversation turned, Qin Chen looked at Xu Jian. “You obviously found out that He Jia and the others had a problem a long time ago, why didn’t you tell me earlier?”

Being asked by Qin Chen, Xu Jian was also guilty. He had the illusion that him not telling the other party about it in the first place was a heinous thing.

Looking at Xu Jian with his head down, Qin Chen knew that he had realized his mistake, so he said:

“Alright, I’m going to go and film. Now that we know they have problems, no matter who they’re looking for later, don’t run around. Stay there and stay away from them.”

Xu Jian nodded hurriedly while thinking to himself——

I’m 24 years old this year. Qin Chen doesn’t think I’m 4 years old, right?

Later, Ou Qing took advantage of Qin Chen’s absence and came to talk to Xu Jian twice. Both times were courteously and politely dismissed by Xu Jian and Xiao Nan.

Among them, Xiao Nan took the lead.

Don’t look at Xiao Nan’s young age, she is like a sophisticated person, her words are watertight and people can’t grasp the mistakes. In a few smiling words, Ou Qing can only dumbly smile in a few words.

Xu Jian, who should have been the party in question, instead acted like a crowd of onlookers, watching Xiao Nan and Ou Qing’s fake pretenses.

If it weren’t for the situation, Xu Jian even wanted to shout ‘666’[1]cool, powerful, amazingat Xiao Nan.

Before today, Xu Jian didn’t even know that Xiao Nan was so eloquent.

Although Qin Chen and Xiao Nan handle things differently, the results are the same.

Sure enough, there is a kind of boss that has this kind of staff.

When Ou Qing returned from another defeat, Xiao Nan wiped her nose with her thumb and raised her chin proudly at Xu Jian that means——

Done!

Xu Jian silently complimented Xiao Nan.

Amazing.

…………

Today’s filming is Qin Chen and He Jia’s group. Xu Jian and Xiao Nan were watching on the side.

Xu Jian found that He Jia was obviously not in shape today. Originally, his acting skills and Qin Chen’s is a hundred and eighty thousand miles away. During the filming process, he was occasionally distracted and it’s simply hard to watch when filming.

He was oppressed by Qin Chen.

It’s still the kind of pressure that gets crushed to death.

In order to balance the effect of the film, Qin Chen sometimes restrains a bit when acting against other actors.

But today, I don’t know what happened to Qin Chen, he didn’t care about He Jia at all. He still played steadily throughout and showed the crew what is called the textbook-style acting sling.[2]to hang someone and beat them; fig. to completely dominate over the other

At the end of the shoot, the sweat behind the director came out——there’s pressure play all throughout, how could the filming go on?

However, it’s not the actor’s fault that the actor’s acting skills are good. The director can’t blame Qin Chen so he can only carry it all to He Jia and roared:

The reply is slow again, why are you distracted? Do you still want to shoot?

Forgot the words again, how many times was it today?

Pay attention to the position! Position! Who do you want to see the back of your head?

Pay attention to the rhythm. Don’t be led by Qin Chen!

…………

Shouting ‘cut’ over and over again, the director felt that his mouth was going to blister because of the fire.[3]anger

He previously felt that He Jia’s acting was still passable ah, why is it so difficult to watch it today?

Compared with Qin Chen, He Jia’s performance today is at least one worse than Qin Chen.

In other words, He Jia can be said to have no acting skills.

Being yelled at by the director in front of so many people, He Jia felt guilty and with so much powder on his face, it didn’t cover his blushing shame, and felt unable to get off the stage in full view of the crowd.

He screwed up.

Qin Chen took a sip of water handed over by Xiao Nan. He has been watching coldly with no intention to say a good word for He Jia.

In the end, the director saw the time is close enough, and shouted to everyone with a loudspeaker. He let everyone take a break first and then continue filming after 20 minutes.

After the anxious director roared, he dropped the loudspeaker and went straight to the dejected He Jia, looking like he was ready to talk alone.

Xu Jian looked at He Jia not far away, frowning and wondering if his abnormality today was because of him.

But the last time He Jia saw him, he didn’t react as much as this time.

Thinking of this, Xu Jian looked away. After staring for so long, he now also felt a little thirsty when he saw Qin Chen drinking water.

Xu Jian turned around and was about to go to Qin Chen’s side for a drink when he heard a hesitant voice in front of him:

“Xu Jian?”

Hearing someone call his name, Xu Jian subconsciously stopped and looked up. He saw two strange men standing about ten meters away from him.

Xu Jian raised his head that Jiang Linxie saw his face clearly. After being stunned for a few seconds, he quickly walked towards Xu Jian, his expression was very surprised:

“Xu Jian, why are you here?”

Looking at the strange man walking towards him, Xu Jian was confused—

Who are you?



The author has something to say:

Jiang Linxie: Why are you here?! [Excited]

Jian Cat’s head tilted: Who are you? [Dazed]

Qin poop scooping officer: Well done [Thumbs up]



Xu Jian not knowing who is who
