Chapter 96 Double Finalists

Editor: Jodi

Lin Qin’s eyes were glued to the exit gate, and the moment the crowd poured out, his eyes scanned all the figures that came out, trying to search for the silhouette that had been engraved in the depths of his soul.

Not him, not him, none of them were him!

It was obviously just a few minutes, yet Lin Qin felt as if it was an eternity.

Then finally, a tall figure came out from the darkness, and to Lin Qin, everyone else faded away, leaving only that figure.

Getting closer, closer.

When the light illuminated Meng Chao’s figure, Lin Qin couldn’t wait to rush in and hug him hard.

And Meng Chao, seeing him, showed a ‘just as I expected’ smile, his pace quickening.

When he came out, Lin Qin immediately moved to jump into his arms, however he hesitated at the last moment as he suddenly thought to himself, Meng Chao had to be very tired from the past two days. Would he be able to catch him?

If Meng Chao knew what he was thinking, he wouldn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

However he didn’t know, hence just as Lin Qin was hesitating, thinking whether to jump or not, Meng Chao took a step forward and wrapped him in his arms.

“I’m back.” Meng Chao said as he kissed his ear.

And it was only when Lin Qin heard these words that his heart finally fell back down.

However as they were public figures, they restrained themselves to a brief hug so as to not draw attention to themselves then hurried home.

And the moment they got home, Meng Chao pinned Lin Qin against the door, kissing him.

Lin Qin pushed back, “You haven’t showered yet.”

Meng Chao pulled him into him by his butt then picked him up, kissing him again. “Shower together?”

And wrapping his legs around his waist, Lin Qin asked provocatively, “Can you do it?”

What a man couldn’t accept the most was this kind of provocation, and so bumping against Lin Qin’s hip, Meng Chao asked meaningfully, “What do you think?”

Then, he proceeded to show Lin Qin directly and physically just how capable he was, bullying Lin Qin so much that he cried.

Then back in bed, with sleep far from his mind, Lin Qin remembered not seeing Meng Ke and Han Zhi at the airport and so asked, “Did they take the VIP exit?”

“En.” Meng Chao stroked Lin Qin’s back again and again as he responded, “They were afraid of fans and paparazzi, so they left through the VIP exit.”

Lin Qin asked again, “You said before that big brother Meng can come back to the country, does it mean they’ve finally made it official? Has Han Zhi agreed to be with big brother Meng?”

“Yes.” Meng Chao’s tone was relaxed. Meng Ke got his wish, so he, as his little brother, was naturally happy for him.

Lin Qin yawned, feeling sleepy however he still forced his eyes open to ask, “Did an earth-shattering and awe-inspiring love story happen between them?”

He was very curious.

Meng Chao tapped his head lightly, “Go to sleep if you’re feeling sleepy.”

Lin Qin did want to hear the story, however he was really tired, so after pestering Meng Chao for a while, he fell asleep without realising it.

Meng Chao pulled the quilt higher, tucked him in, and then hugged Lin Qin to him as he also fell asleep.

Actually, no earth-shattering love story happened between Meng Ke and Han Zhi. It was just that suddenly facing life and death  made Han Zhi realize his true feelings, which was why they came together.

Everyone’s love was different, however as long as the outcome was good, then that was all that mattered.

The next day Han Zhi appeared in public again, and although he looked a bit haggard, he didn’t have any heavy injuries, causing his fans to breathe sighs of relief.

And as the rescue operations continued, the terrorist attack in K City finally came to an end.

The deceased were gone, so the living had to love this world even more.


Another year passed in a flash, and during this year, Lin Qin and Meng Chao didn’t take on any new roles, however they were no longer like before where they didn’t update their accounts for three to four months at a time.

Their account updates were now quite frequent, with their posts being about once a month.

Making it so that one could know where they were through their Weibo.

That’s right, after the terrorist attack last year, Lin Qin and Meng Chao started their travel vacation.

They went everywhere without a fixed destination, very wilfully, randomly throwing darts at a map and going wherever the dart landed.

And although their fans clamoured under their accounts every day that they didn’t want to eat dog food, once Lin Qin and Meng Chao stopped posting for more than ten days, they would still go back to their accounts obediently to beg for it.

Thus, Lin Qin and Meng Chao, stopping and going, actually travelled for more than half a year before returning to the country.

The two Movie Emperors were so willful that it led to their studios being very laid-back, not competing or marketing aggressively, just waiting quietly for their return to pick from the scripts contributed from various places.

What’s more Lin Qin and Meng Chao probably felt that they had been a bit too hands-off for nearly half a year, hence after they returned, they selected scripts from the ones in their studios honestly.

Unexpectedly, Meng Chao chose a script for a villain role, and while others were surprised, Lin Qin was very calm, because during the recording of [We Are Together], he had expressed wanting to play a villain or a supporting role, so now was just the time to realize Meng Chao’s idea.

He, on the other hand chose a script about the struggle of a minor character, with no sudden rise to fame or face-slapping moments, a minor character who, from obscurity, started his own company and faced various difficulties.

Then after a life full of ups and downs, he reached the pinnacle of his career.

Although it didn’t sound exciting, the story was highly readable and could resonate with many people. Most importantly, Lin Qin liked the script.

And since the scripts had been selected, they each joined their film crews a month later, however this time, one was in the southwest and the other in the northeast, separated by the entire length of C Country.

This was the furthest distance and longest time Lin Qin and Meng Chao had ever been apart since being together.

And at the beginning, the two of them found it hard to adjust, but eventually, they immersed themselves in filming, and it was only in the evenings, during their video calls, when they had time to talk to each other that their deep-seated longing for the other would come out.

However even with the longing, work had to continue. Their lives were not only about each other, as they also loved their work deeply, so doing one movie a year was their most comfortable choice.

And it was this longing that made their love grow stronger and more intoxicating.

At first they thought they would have to wait until their respective movies were completed before they could meet, however an unexpected opportunity brought this meeting time even closer.

February was a very important month for the movie industry, with the Berlin International Film Festival and the Cannes International Film Festival unfolding one after the other. And stars, whether they had works or not, would have to compete for beauty on the red carpet.

Meanwhile back in C Country, the movie ‘Dark War’ that was directed by Xiang Dong Peng became the biggest winner in today’s cinematic discussions.

Lin Qin and Meng Chao were both nominated for Best Actor at the Berlin International Film Festival, the soundtrack of the movie was nominated for Best Soundtrack Award, then it also received a nomination for Best Director.

As the lead actors, Lin Qin and Meng Chao had to take leaves of absence from their crews to travel to West Berlin to attend the Berlin International Film Festival.
