Chapter 92 – Obedient
Beginning with Qin Chen photographing him as a fool with poor intelligence, Xu Jian began to doubt his aesthetics.
In public, Qin Chen didn’t want to delete the photo, and Xu Jian couldn’t hold him and nibble on him. He could only stare at him softly without deterrence.
When checking out, Xu Jian found that the cat earmuffs he had taken away were put in by Qin Chen without knowing behind him.
Facing the cashier’s secretly measuring eyes, Xu Jian glanced at Qin Chen silently, thankful that he had put on his mask just now.
When all the things Qin Chen said were bought, it was already close to dinner time. Qin Chen turned to look at Xu Jian, “Eat out today?”
Xu Jian nodded after he heard, then asked a difficult question, “What to eat?”
Qin Chen looked around, “Look around and see what’s there bah.”
On such a cold day, the two finally decided to eat hot pork ribs soup. While waiting for the food to be served, Pan Min called Qin Chen and asked him where he was now.
Qin Chen: “Eating out.”
Xu Jian was sitting next to Qin Chen, and could just hear Pan Min’s voice coming from the phone.
Qin Chen glanced at Xu Jian and replied, “With Xu Jian, what’s wrong?”
Pan Min over there was obviously relieved to hear Xu Jian’s name, then explained:
“You guys were too careless. You didn’t even know that you were followed by paparazzi. The other party took a picture and was stopped by the studio, so I called to ask.”
After hearing Pan Min’s words, Xu Jian was startled and began to recall whether he and Qin Chen had done anything too intimate along the way.
Qin Chen’s expression was also cold, “Which reporter?”
Pan Min: “The Focus.”
Pan Min turned to comfort him, “But since you are with Xu Jian, there’s no need to worry. Even if you’re afraid, you won’t capture anything.”
Although Pan Min said that the paparazzi who took the pictures had been withdrawn, after hanging up the phone, Qin Chen still called the waiter and changed their location to a more private box.
The waiter left after serving the food. When there were only two of them, Xu Jian looked at Qin Chen with some worry, “Are we being followed all the way?”
Then, wasn’t their address also exposed?
Qin Chen, who had a cold face and didn’t know to who he was sending a message, listened to Xu Jian’s words, his expression eased a little, and shook his head.
“No, we were being watched when we were shopping in the mall.”
People came and went to the mall, and both of them wore masks. But Qin Chen is too popular, his figure and looks were easily exposed, and the entertainment reporters had poisonous eyes, so it wasn’t strange to be recognized.
Thinking that there were eyes watching them all the way from the mall, Xu Jian felt uncomfortable in his heart and moved uncomfortably in his seat.
“It feels like you don’t have private space anymore.”
Qin Chen was also unhappy when his private life is being followed, but he still looked at Xu Jian seriously and said:
“In the future, you will encounter this kind of thing when you go out by yourself. It’s best to get rid of it. If you can’t get rid of it, just go around in circles, don’t directly go home. After exposing your address, there will be paparazzi squatting outside the community to guard you every day.”
Xu Jian nodded first, then halfway through, he reacted, “I’m not famous, there should be no one squatting me.”
Today is the first time in many years that Xu Jian encountered being secretly photographed, and he even borrowed Qin Chen’s light.
Qin Chen: “There will be soon.”
Qin Chen believes that as soon as <The Slayer> was released, Xu Jian would definitely gain a large number of fans relying on Xu Feng’s role. At that time, there were not many cars in <Chaotic Steps and Flying Swords>, and it was close to finalization and entering the promotion period.
Listening to Qin Chen’s affirmative tone, Xu Jian didn’t hold back a laugh, “You believe in me so much.”
You’ll soon be popular.
After signing with Leyu, Chen Doudou wasn’t the only one who said similar things to Xu Jian. He was faintly looking forward to it in his heart but didn’t feel it strongly.
There are too many people in the circle who are filming well but are nobodies. Xu Jian has confidence in his acting skills, but he’s still not sure if he’s that lucky.
Xiao Hónglittle red/popularity relies on support, Da Hóngbig red/popularity relies on fate.
And the greater the hope, the greater the disappointment, so Xu Jian has been intentionally or unintentionally lowering his expectations until now, telling himself to film properly and work hard to play the role well. The rest is not something he can control.
Qin Chen laughed when Xu Jian asked, and didn’t answer but asked, “If I don’t believe you then I’ll believe in who?”
Xu Jian bent his eyes and smiled, “Then I’ll work hard to not embarrass you.”
However, Qin Chen was not happy when he heard Xu Jian’s words, “What do you mean to embarrass me?”
In Qin Chen’s heart, no matter whether Xu Jian is popular or not, even if he doesn’t become an actor in the end, he is the best in his heart.
Xu Jian looked serious, “I can’t say that my boyfriend is a double gold Film Emperor, and I haven’t checked on this person, right?”
Xu Jian’s goal is now to ‘being checked to no one’ to a small 18th-line actor.
The soup pot was already gudugudu bubbling, Qin Chen turned the fire down a little and gave Xu Jian a chopstick of green vegetables, and started talking, “You’re fine now.”
After glancing down at the vegetables in the bowl, Xu Jian ‘tsk’-ed, shook his head pretentiously, and said, “There are people who say that this is fine now, but in the end, they only give me vegetables to eat.”
Knowing that Xu Jian was joking, Qin Chen also cooperated with him, sighing with hatred, “There are people who say that their boyfriend is a Film Emperor, but their boyfriend can’t even eat vegetables.”
Xu Jian: “……”
High, you’reformal/courteous you, but XJ being sarcastic lmao still high and this little one bows down.
At the same time, the Focus on the film and television entertainment headquarters, in the office of the boss’ office.
The Focus boss received a phone call and first smiled flatteringly. However, after clearly hearing what the person on the other end of the phone said, the smile on his face gradually disappeared, his face deathly pale. He apologized repeatedly, saying that the people under him were not sensible and failed to recognize each other. He must teach his subordinates who have no eyes a good lesson.
In five minutes, the manager who was bloodily scoldedlit. to pour dog’s blood on [idiom]; fig. torrent of abuse by the boss made a call to the editor-in-chief and scolded the editor-in-chief for being confused, saying they dare to provoke anyone and don’t think about this quarter’s bonus.
The editor-in-chief then suffered a lot of the manager’s anger and @ all the members in the working group chat. He scolded the two reporters who secretly photographed Qin Chen today on their faces, and finally concluded:
[The above sent word. Qin Chen’s behind-the-scene supporter is not to be trifled with. The original words are ‘Don’t provoke him in the future, take a detour when you meet him, otherwise, it’s a matter of losing your job; not even knowing how you died in the end.’ Everyone take it seriously, forget about the matter of pulling the wooltake advantage of Qin Chen’s team, one, two, don’t cause me any more trouble.]
Qin Chen and Xu Jian chatted while eating. When they finished, it was completely dark. The two put on their masks and slowly walked to the parking lot.
Although Pan Min said that the entertainment reporters following them had withdrawn, Xu Jian couldn’t help but look around after going out, paying attention to whether there were any suspicious people following them.
What if there was more than one media reporter secretly took photos?
Xu Jian kept a watchful eye, then it really made him see that something was wrong.
Subconsciously slowing down his steps, Xu Jian approached Qin Chen and gently pulled his clothes.
Qin Chen turned to look at him, “What’s wrong.”
Xu Jian frowned at the word ‘chuan’, lowered his volume, and whispered, “The fast-food restaurant next to it, the second position from the left to right by the window.”
Qin Chen, who instantly understood what he meant, looked cold, “There are paparazzi following?”
Xu Jian’s heartbeat was a little fast, and he said after facing Qin Chen’s puzzled gaze, “Looking at the side profiles, it seems to be Wu Ling and Sun Liyu.”
Xu Jian just glanced casually and saw the two people sitting by the window of the fast-food restaurant next to him quickly turned their heads to avoid his sight. He originally didn’t mind it, as a result, when he took a closer look, he found that the backs of the two looked familiar.
One person is short and stout with a crew cut, and the other person is thin like a hemp pole.
Xu Jian has a good memory. He squinted his eyes and looked at the two silently. After seeing the side profiles of one of them, he was even more sure.
These two people were Wu Ling and Sun Liyu who blocked Qin Chen in the underground parking lot a few days ago and deceived them.
Xu Jian didn’t believe it was a coincidence to meet these two people here.
After hearing Xu Jian’s words, Qin Chen’s gaze narrowed, “Are you sure?”
Xu Jian nodded lightly, his tone was sure, “I’m sure it’s them.”
Qin Chen really didn’t turn his head, and walked as usual, took out his phone, and called Pan Min. After briefly and quickly telling the matter, he said, “I turned on the location of the phone, Sister Pan, you call someone over, I’ll hold them off.”
The last time letting those two walk, he hasn’t found clues for a long time. This time Qin Chen won’t let them run away.
Pan Min also heard Qin Chen talk about the underground parking lot matter. Now when she heard that Qin Chen was going to deal with these two people who are obviously not good people, she became anxious and disapproved, saying, “No, Qin Chen, don’t act rashly. What if something happens?”
Qin Chen was very calm, “Don’t worry, I’m just holding them back and won’t do anything else.”
Worried that something might happen, Pan Min still disagreed, Qin Chen said in a low voice:
“I have movedhouses and they can still find it. It shows that their origin is not simple. Last time, they blocked people, this time they’re stalking. Who knows what will they do next time?”
“If we don’t catch them today and ask clearly, it will be difficult to find them after they run away.”
Qin Chen would not put two time bombs around.
After hearing Qin Chen’s words, Pan Min over there was silent for two seconds. She was convinced and gritted her teeth, “Fine, you and Xu Jian be careful in everything.”
They had already walked to the parking lot while talking. After seeing Qin Chen hang up the phone, Xu Jian who had been paying attention behind him wiped his right mirror with his usual expression, and lightly said, “Those two left the fast-food restaurant and entered the black seven-seater van behind us.”
The two of them opened the car door and got into the car as if they didn’t notice anything. After closing the door, Qin Chen looked sideways and saw that there was indeed a van parked about twenty meters away from them.
Starting the car, Qin Chen pursed his lips, then said to Xu Jian, “I will park in a crowded place, you take a taxi back, remember to ask the driver to go around a few more times.”
The target of those two people was obviously himself, and Qin Chen didn’t want Xu Jian to take a little risk.
As soon as Xu Jian heard his words, he immediately understood what he meant. In a ‘snap’, he fastened his seat belt, and looked ahead without turning back, “I won’t go down.”
Facing him, Qin Chen was in a rare solemn tone, “Be obedient, don’t make trouble.”
Xu Jian laughed angrily at Qin Chen and turned to look at him.
“They all say that husband and wife are birds of the same forest and they fly away from each other when the disaster is imminent.

Qin Chen looked at him helplessly, “When did I say I was going to fly separately with you? Where do you want to fly to?”
Xu Jian looked through the car window and saw that the van really started after them, and casually replied, “I’m not going anywhere besides you, don’t try to drive me away.”
After saying that, without waiting for Qin Chen to speak again, Xu Jian quickly changed the subject, “They caught up, what do we do?”
The author has something to say:
Jian Cat: I’m not flying anywhere!
Qin poop scooping officer’s focus: Husband and wife?
Jian Cat: … Someone is doing something, can you be more serious?
