Ji Li saw the table full of so much food and couldn’t help asking, “You really blindly selected this?”
Qin Yue finished answering and habitually placed some food into Ji Li’s bowl. It was a subconscious pampering instinct.
Ji Li was startled and stared at the culprit with some resentment.
Who was paying attention to the proportions?
How was blatantly serving food paying attention to the proportions?
Qin Yue met his lover’s eyes and suddenly had a sense of weakness like he had done something wrong. However, he had already taken it too smoothly, and it was difficult to restrain himself.
Fortunately, this wasn’t a live broadcast. They’d just delete this part later.
In any case, he had contacted the production team as an investor before the recording.
The program team would have an idea in their hearts about what should and shouldn’t be aired.
The female writers and directors at the scene shone brightly, and brilliant fireworks had exploded in their hearts.
Look at this habitual movement, look at this loving expression!
I would rather believe that the Huang River has no water than that Chinese Rose isn’t real!
This segment had a 90% chance of being deleted during post-editing, but they made money by seeing it on the spot
He learned from the previous lesson, so Qin Yue didn’t perform any excessive actions later on. Yuan Yifei and Ji Yunqi also teased each other from time to time and helped serve dishes for each other in a friendly manner…
The dinner finally passed without any risks.
Since Qin Yue suddenly participated in the filming, the program team didn’t have time to find another place for him to stay.
Originally, there were only three beds prepared in the bedroom. The moment Qin Yue came, it was destined that two people would have to sleep together.
Ji Li was afraid that Qin Yue would say something he shouldn’t and took the lead in speaking, “Yifei, shall I squeeze in with you tonight? Let’s leave the small bed for Brother Yue to sleep alone.”
Yuan Yifei saw through him, but didn’t expose him. “Okay.”
The room was full of cameras, so Qin Yue and Ji Li’s contact could be regarded as restrained.
The division of beds was decided. Ji Yunqi and Yuan Yifei went to wash up in turn, intending to go to bed early. There was no way the program team would air such trivial scenes.
Ji Li couldn’t hold back when Qin Yue went into the bathroom to wash up and sneaked in.
Qin Yue tacitly guessed what he was doing, and the bathroom door was swiftly closed. The microphones of both of them were removed, and the small bathroom became a rare space for the two of them.
“Li Bao.” Qin Yue buried his head in Ji Li’s neck and greedily absorbed Ji Li’s scent.
“Why did you come here all of a sudden?” Ji Li relaxed and leaned comfortably into his lover’s arms.
“I felt flustered at the thought of not being able to contact you for three days.” Qin Yue kissed his lover’s earlobe, and the strength of his embrace tightened.
A long-distance relationship due to filming wasn’t a problem, but the program group actually had a routine of confiscating their mobile phones?
The more Qin Yue thought about it, the more difficult it became. Therefore, he couldn’t help rushing over after finishing work yesterday.
Ji Li didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry. “Qin Yue, why do I feel like you are becoming more and more clingy?”
It was no wonder why they said that dogs were like their owners.
It turned out that Major General’s stickiness toward Snow Cake was learned from Qin Yue.
Qin Yue didn’t refute this and kissed his lover’s neck.
If he was clingy, then he would just be clingy. In any case, in this life, he couldn’t be clingy with anyone other than Ji Li.
Qin Yue withdrew slightly and kissed the other person’s soft lips repeatedly. “I rushed all the way here. Can you really bear not to let me sleep with you?”
“Isn’t it better for you to sleep in a bed alone? It won’t be as crowded.” Ji Li deliberately pretended not to understand the deep meaning in his words.
“I want to sleep with you. How can any couple sleep in separate beds?” Qin Yue was very annoyed. The more he thought about it, the more annoyed he became.
He even wondered if he hadn’t invested enough into the program. Why else did this stingy program team select such a small room?
It wasn’t private at all.
It wasn’t easy to live in a two person world.
“Baby, Li Bao.” Qin Yue hugged him and coaxed in a low voice. “The cameras will be turned off later. Can you sleep with me?”
Ji Li maintained a sense of reason. “No, you definitely won’t be obedient.”
“You can’t sleep well without me,” Qin Yue said again.
“Who says I can’t sleep well?” Ji Li refused to admit it.
“It is me.” Qin Yue changed his words. “I can’t sleep well without you.”
The dignified best actor was about to bring out all his stickiness so he could sleep in the same bed as his lover on a variety show.
Ji Li felt that the other person’s appearance was interesting and deliberately didn’t agree. “Who asked you to come and participate? Just endure it.”
Qin Yue sighed heavily and bit his lover’s lower lip in punishment. “You are deliberately tormenting me.”
He originally thought that he would be able to hug but not eat in the show. But now it wasn’t so good. He couldn’t even hug his lover.
“Qin Yue.” Ji Li had a bad thought and stroked his lover’s sexy Adam’s apple with a finger. “I missed you very much.”
After saying these provocative words, Ji Li was ready to slip away. Before he could even touch the doorknob, he was pulled back by Qin Yue.
“You aren’t allowed to leave. Accompany me to lower the fire.”
The two of them stayed in the bathroom for over half an hour before Ji Li returned to the bedroom with a hot face.
Ji Yunqi was a big-hearted person and had gone to sleep early with the quilt in his arms.
Yuan Yifei glimpsed Ji Li’s slightly red and swollen lips and teased him. “He is fierce enough.”
The microphones had been removed. The cameras were still in, but it was no longer working hours, so the program team wouldn’t spread private conversations.
Ji Li coughed with embarrassment.
The next second, he saw Yuan Yifei take out a medicine bottle and swallow a pill without changing his expression.
Ji Li frowned and asked, “What are you taking?”
“I sleep lightly, so taking a sleeping pill helps me fall asleep.” Yuan Yifei answered like he was accustomed to it. He freed up half the bed for his friend and asked with a smile, “You really won’t sleep in the same bed with Qin Yue?”
“Take less sleeping pills. It isn’t good for your health.” Ji Li didn’t answer. He instead approached and leaned against the headboard with Yuan Yifei.
“Yifei, I actually have wanted to talk with you for a long time.”
“Talk about what?”
“Are you a bit self-loathing when it comes to acting? I’ve always felt that you seem to be under a lot of pressure,” Ji Li asked in a straightforward yet gentle manner.
The smile on Yuan Yifei’s face froze and he denied it. “How can that be?”
“Who isn’t under pressure as long as they live in this entertainment industry?” He looked at the single bed on the left and smiled. “If you want to say that there is really someone with no pressure, I’m afraid that it can only be him, right?”
Ji Li glanced at Ji Yunqi, who had already fallen asleep, and couldn’t help smiling.
The other person had a rich family background and was a talented actor. He didn’t lack contacts when entering the entertainment circle. He was the proud son of Heaven in the original novel. The aura of a protagonist that could be controlled was indeed something that others would envy.
However, both Ji Li and Yuan Yifei regarded him as a friend and naturally wouldn’t be jealous of him.
Yuan Yifei took off his glasses, revealing warm and charming eyes. “I have been in this circle for so many years and I’m fine.”
It was just that after filming for so many years, he received nothing in return. The ridicule of his acting in and out of the industry came in waves.
Yuan Yifei was really tired. He had no family, no partner, and no outlet to vent to.
His nerves were like a tight string that would completely break if he wasn’t careful.
So he wanted to stop and slow down.
“Yes, this is true.”
Yuan Yifei lay down and smiled slightly. “I will reserve this bed for you. If you want to sneak into someone else’s bed in the middle of the night, I won’t stop you.”
Ji Li pulled up the quilt and replied, “Go to bed early, fierce gong.”
Yuan Yifei chucked. “Good night.”
Everyone was already lying down when Qin Yue came out of the bathroom.
He looked at the video recording equipment that had been turned off but still used his clothes to block the cameras.
Qin Yue walked to Ji Li’s side and muttered in a low voice, “Li Bao…”
Ji Li’s simple words blocked his unfinished words.
Qin Yue helplessly rubbed his baby’s head and reluctantly lay down on the innermost bed.
The lights dimmed, leaving only the sound of steady breathing in the bedroom.
Ji Li breathed deeply and didn’t intend to sleep at all. Qin Yue was right. He really couldn’t fall asleep.
Ji Li always recognized the bed. Every time he went to a crew to film, he always brought his usual quilt cover.
On the first night yesterday, he hadn’t rested well.
Today, he temporarily squeezed into the same bed as Yuan Yifei and didn’t dare to turn over wildly, out of fear of disturbing his friend who was resting.
The lover he hadn’t seen for half a month was lying on another bed, so close he could reach out and touch him.
Ji Li’s mind became more sober and he suddenly coveted that warm embrace. “…Qin Yue.”
The simple murmur completely hooked Ji Li’s thoughts.
Ji Li was unable to hold back, so he rolled over and got out of bed.
In the darkness, Qin Yue accurately grabbed his arm and dragged him into a warm embrace.
The familiar temperature enveloped him, and Ji Li subconsciously let out a satisfied sigh.
Qin Yue bit his ear. “I called you over here a long time ago. Will you sleep with me?”
“Be quiet and stop talking.” Ji Li was still a bit nervous, and he always felt that he was doing something bad in the presence of his friends.
“What are you afraid of? We are a real couple.” Qin Yue lowered his head and tightened his arms. “Li Bao, I missed you so much.”
“I missed you too.”
Ji Li rubbed against his lover’s thin lips. The next second, his lips were accurately captured, and the kiss deepened by the other person.
Lips and teeth rubbed against each other, raising a heart-pounding heat.
Ji Li suppressed his passionate voice and grabbed Qin Yue’s pajamas tightly.
Everything around him was quiet, and all his senses were focused on the kiss.
The kiss was getting deeper and deeper, and his heart was beating faster and faster.
In such a special environment, the dazed Ji Li actually felt a different type of dependence and enthusiasm.
The air became thinner and thinner, and his brain gradually became blank. Ji Li moved his body a bit unbearably.
Suddenly, there was a creaking sound from the wooden planks. His sanity came back, and Ji Li froze in fright.
“Don’t be afraid.” Qin Yue naturally wouldn’t lose control, and he patted his lover’s back to calm his nervousness.
“You have to wake me up tomorrow,” Ji Li instructed.
At the beginning, they signed a contract with the program team. The cameras would start on time every morning at 7 o’clock.
“Yes, don’t worry. Good night,” Qin Yue answered gently, but he was already thinking about the next travel policy to implement in his heart.
Everything else was easy to say.
However, the rooms must be separated by pairs so that he and his baby could have a bit of fun at night. The arrangements couldn’t be like tonight where they had to be careful of even private kisses.
