Chapter 32.1

Lin An Lan and Jiang Xu got into the artist’s van and sat in the back seat.

Lin An Lan leaned against the window and asked Jiang Xu, “What do you want to say?”

Jiang Xu changed his tone, “Xiao Lan, can we make up? What happened before was my fault and I apologize. I shouldn’t have said that kind of thing to you but I promise I won’t do it again so don’t be angry and let’s make up, okay?”

“Can you really do that?” Lin An Lan was skeptical.

Jiang Xu nodded, “I can, it’s because I was anxious at that time, that’s why I said that but then you got angry and then I regretted it.”

Lin An Lan didn’t believe him, “Really?”

“Really.” Jiang Xu said seriously, “I’ve been so lonely in the time you’ve been ignoring and I feel miserable, I miss you.”

“You missed me but didn’t contact me?”

“It’s because you went to Cheng Yu’s place. I was afraid that if I got in touch with you, he would be suspicious and would see the gap between us.”

Lin An Lan: ????

“What gap between us?”

“Of course there’s no gap between us, but with you suddenly going to him, he would definitely suspect your motives even though he is happy, so I had to take this into consideration, do you understand?”

Jiang Xu continued to explain, “It’s not that I don’t want to contact you, it’s that I was afraid to contact you.”

Lin An Lan felt that the more he spoke, the more mysterious he became. What other motive could he have for going to Cheng Yu? Cheng Yu was his boyfriend, wasn’t it logical for him to go to him?

“So you’re not afraid now?”

“It’s because you’re angry.” Jiang Xu whispered, “I originally thought you wouldn’t be angry for long, but this time your anger hasn’t subsided yet and it’s been almost two months now. You’ve never been angry with me for such a long time, so I was afraid that you’d really not want to continue caring about me.”

Jiang Xu moved closer to him “Xiao Lan, I made a mistake, but I’ve learned my lesson and will never say that kind of thing to you again, so let’s make up, okay?”

Lin An Lan wasn’t interested in his words, the only thing he cared about was, “You won’t say anything bad about Cheng Yu in front of me again, right?”

Jiang Xu frowned, “Why do you keep bringing him up?”

“Isn’t he the core of our conflict?”

“Not for long.”

Jiang Xu didn’t like the fact that he was focusing on Cheng Yu and taking hold of his shoulders, advised him, “Although you’re with Cheng Yu now, it’s just for show. He’s just a passing visitor in your life so you don’t need to care about him so much.”

Lin An Lan: ????

Lin An Lan pushed his hands away, shocked, “Jiang Xu, do you know what you’re saying? He’s my boyfriend and although with falling in love there’s a possibility of breaking up, until we do, neither of us will be just a passing visitor through each other’s lives.”

“It’s not like he’s your real boyfriend!”

Lin An Lan: ……

“You really can’t accept us being together.” Lin An Lan sighed in exhaustion, “You’re so stubborn.”

Jiang Xu only thought that he was the one being stubborn.

“It’s not as if you like him. You’re only with him temporarily so what difference does it make if you break up or not?”

“If I don’t like him could it be that I like you?”

Lin An Lan almost laughed out loud, a little speechless.

Jiang Xu froze for a moment, seemingly not having expected such a possibility.

He looked at the person in front of him and asked softly, “Do you like me?”

Lin An Lan: ????!!!!!

“It was a rhetorical question! Not one that needs an answer! How come you can’t understand Chinese. This sentence means that I like him, him!”

Jiang Xu gave a laugh, “Then I still believe more that you like me.”

“You’re feeling overly good about yourself, aren’t you?”

“So you were so angry then because you like me?” Jiang Xu suddenly came to a ‘realization’, “That’s why you’ve been ignoring me for a while now, not seeing me and not answering my calls. It’s because you like me?”

Lin An Lan: ……

Lin An Lan turned around and pulled open the door, ready to get out.

Jiang Xu stopped him hurriedly.

Lin An Lan looked back at him, the expression on his face calm, “Aren’t you talking to yourself quite happily? What do you need me for? Do you know what it is to be self-absorbed? Look at yourself in the mirror.”

Jiang Xu was a little lost at his words.

That’s right, he thought to himself, how could Lin An Lan like him?

Lin An Lan didn’t like Cheng Yu, but he didn’t love him either.

They were just friends. Even if they were close, even if they trusted and relied on each other, they were just friends.

Lin An Lan had no thoughts of falling in love nor he did he believe in love that’s why they had always been just friends; much better than ordinary friends, best friends.

“I won’t talk about it.” Jiang Xu said in a warm voice.

Lin An Lan stared at him, “Then you admit that Cheng Yu and I are lovers, that I like him and that he likes me?”

Jiang Xu: ……

“If that’s what you want me to do then yes.”

“I don’t.” Lin An Lan leaned back in his seat, “Only, the premise of me having a normal conversation with you is that you must first acknowledge Cheng Yu as my boyfriend, recognize him as such, then respect him and treat him that way otherwise I won’t continue this conversation with you.”

Jiang Xu felt that this might be retribution. It was because he had asked Lin An Lan to approach Cheng Yu at that time, to be Cheng Yu’s boyfriend that was why he was simply biting on to this point without letting go, trying to piss him off.

“I admit it.” Jiang Xu conceded, “Does that make you feel better?”

“It’s what you should do.”

“Fine, it’s what I should do. But you shouldn’t always mention him to me either, you know I hate him.”

“He’s my boyfriend now so naturally you can’t hate him like you used to.”

“Xiao Lan, can we skip him? I don’t want to discuss this topic with you anymore.”

Lin An Lan nodded, “Then I should go back to filming.”

“So we’ve sort of made up?”

Lin An Lan: ……

Lin An Lan thought about it. Although he felt a little twisted in his heart, he and Jiang Xu really didn’t seem to have any deep hatred between them as the biggest conflict was only Cheng Yu.

“Barely.” He said, “But given that you have a record, I still won’t release you from the blacklist for now. Just send a text message and I’ll read it.”
