IPCFS: Chapter 112 Part 2

Ji Li was enjoying the hot spring bath and completely unaware of what was happening outside it. He leisurely enjoyed the plum wine provided to them by the program team.

It was sour and fruity.

Ji Li leaned against the edge and looked at Qin Yue, who was tasting wine nearby. For some reason, he suddenly became playful.

He scanned the surroundings out of the corner of his eyes. Then his feet hidden under the water of the hot spring started to restlessly touch his lover.

“……”

Qin Yue immediately noticed the abnormality and his eyes fell on Ji Li’s face.

He held his glass out of sight of the camera and quietly mouthed, ‘Don’t mess around.’

Perhaps it was due to getting along for so long as lovers, but the so-called politeness between the two of them had long disappeared. Ji Li enjoyed this type of provocative and teasing behavior.

He ignored Qin Yue’s reminder and continued to poke upwards.

“……”

Qin Yue silently gritted his teeth, slipped one hand into the water, and grabbed Ji Li’s restless foot. Then he ticked Ji Li’s ticklish sole as if punishing him.

No one knew the sensitivities of his lover better than him.

Ji Li snorted imperceptibly and even shook the wine glass in his hand.

Qin Yue slightly raised an eyebrow and asked silently with his eyes.

-Do you still dare?

The punishment wouldn’t be light.

Ji Li was so ticklish that he almost fell backwards. He wanted to struggle to escape from Qin Yue’s palm, but he was afraid that his large movements would arouse the suspicion of outsiders. Finally, he couldn’t help casting a begging look toward Qin Yue.

After all, this was a public place, and no one dared to act too wildly.

Perhaps it was because the two of them were good at covering up, but the program team didn’t notice this short interaction.

It wasn’t just the program group. Even Yuan Yifei and Qi Heng, who were in the water, didn’t notice the difference between the two of them.

After soaking for around 20 minutes, Chen Xiaoyun held the loudspeaker and started the next part. “Okay, it is time for us to choose a room again.”

The staff raised the display boards of two room types.

“One is a deluxe double room and the other is a wooden double bed in an attic.”

Ji Li saw the pictures of the room types displayed by the program team, and his thoughts suddenly drifted to when he was filming ‘Long Island Iced Tea.’

This time, he had no intention of winning.

“We will change the selection method this time.”

Chen Xiaoyun took out a set of glass stones engraved with the words ‘Poor Travel Notes’ and explained the rules.

“We have put these two sets of stones in the hot spring where you were soaking.”

“The program team will provide you with goggles. The team that is the first to find a set will get the right to choose.”

Yuan Yifei heard this rule and said indifferently, “Then it is better to give it to Qin Yue directly. In any case, I have never won once.”

He had partnered with Ji Yunqi for so long, and the number of times they had won could be counted with his fingers.

“Who said that?” Qi Heng asked rhetorically with a gleam of light in his eyes. “You are a light sleeper. Today, you soaked in the hot spring so sleeping on a soft bed should be more comfortable for you.”

“I will win it for you.”

Yuan Yifei heard this promise and looked away unnaturally. “Who wants you to help me win?”

Ji Li saw this scene and subconsciously smiled.

This duplicity wasn’t simple at first glance.

Soon, a staff member brought over the goggles. Qi Heng and Qin Yue were the main forces of the two teams and wore it first.

Before the official start of the competition, Ji Li quietly called out, “Qin Yue.”

He hadn’t even finished speaking when Qin Yue answered abruptly, “I know.”

They wanted the right to stay in the attic room more than the deluxe double room.

The cameraman captured their interaction but didn’t know what these two were planning.

What was this question and answer about?

They thought that the ‘lucky emperor’ Qin Yue would be able to choose a better room type this time.

Unexpectedly, the result was exactly the opposite.

Qi Heng was very good in the water and could hold his breath for more than a minute at a time. He only plunged into the water twice before collecting a set of ‘Poor Travel Notes’ stones.

On the contrary, from the beginning, Qin Yue changed from his normal state and looked around slowly. Meanwhile, Ji Li wasn’t good at holding his breath and diving so he just gave up. In the end, the two of them could only grab the attic room.

After the hot spring trip, Yuan Yifei drew a cruise ship meal.

It was probably due to it being the last episode, but the program team was willing to spend money. Everyone filled their stomachs in a satisfied manner and returned to their accommodation.

At 11 o’clock in the evening, the indoor camera was turned off.

In fact, the attic prepared for them by the program team was similar to the attic where ‘Long Island Iced Tea’ was filmed.

Ji Li waited and waited. Suddenly, he remembered the heavy plot and felt a throbbing pain in his heart that he hadn’t felt for a long time.

Some movie plots were deep enough to make the actor remember it for a lifetime.

“Qin Yue.”

Ji Li circled behind his lover, who was unpacking their belongings. His tone was slightly low.

Qin Yue felt his emotions immediately. He turned around and hugged Ji Li, asking tacitly, “Are you still thinking about Wen Qiong and Lu Yao?”

“After all, they are characters that the two of us have interpreted together,” Ji Li replied. “I just think that they have really lived in this room, and I inevitably feel sorry for them.”

It was clear that they deeply loved each other, but they had to be separated forever.

“I know.”

Qin Yue didn’t offer much comfort. He just quietly hugged his lover, giving the other person enough time to digest his emotions.

After around five or six minutes, Ji Li withdrew from his embrace. “I will return to China in four or five days. What are your plans for the second half of the year?”

“I want to talk to you about something,” Qin Yue said.

“What is it?”

Qin Yue thought about his words. “I received an invitation for a commercial movie directed by Director Garvey some time ago. After thinking about it, I plan to accept.”

Director Garvey was an internationally renowned director who filmed a series of movies such as ‘Deadly Pursuit’ and ‘Hurricane.” The cumulative box office of his movies was amazing, and he had won many movie awards internationally.

In the action movie industry, Garvey was one of the few internationally famous directors. He had been planning his new movie for two years and intended to invite Qin Yue as the lead role.

“There are a total of two movies, and it is estimated that we will travel all over the world. It will take five months to film if short, and six months if long.”

Ji Li understood the deep meaning of the words and chuckled. “Isn’t this good? Are you afraid that I won’t be able to accept a long-term relationship?”

“It is me who can’t bear it.” Qin Yue hugged him and seriously told him the truth. “When I was filming ‘Country and the World’, I had the idea of withdrawing from the circle. It was your sudden appearance that gave me the idea of continuing to stay in the circle.”

It was the first time Ji Li heard about this, and his eyes flickered slightly.

“Since I have decided to stay with you, I can’t stand still.”

Qin Yue had already won movie and television awards in China. He had been involved in international movies before, but it wasn’t his main career scope.

Now it was time for him to take a step forward.

The most important thing was that based on Ji Li’s current momentum in his career, he would sooner or later win the three major domestic movie awards.

“My baby is chasing me so fast. I seem to have gained a sense of urgency.” Qin Yue smiled back.

Ji Li’s lips curved up, and he gave him enough recognition and support. “That’s right.”

He never wanted Qin Yue to retreat behind the scenes because of their relationship. He hoped that the two of them would chase after each other until they stood side by side at the top of the Chinese and even the international movie industry.

He enjoyed the process of being accompanied and progressing together more than climbing to the top alone.

In addition to ‘Demon Monk’, Ji Li would definitely have to take on a new movie in this gap period. It was only by constantly accumulating works that he could get new achievements.

They had their own careers to be busy with. It wasn’t like they were neglecting each other.

“Half a year is half a year. I am also busy in the second half of the year. We just need to take the time to keep in touch.”

He completely believed in Qin Yue’s feelings and also had a sense of proportion.

Qin Yue bit Ji Li’s lips. “You are so free and relaxed. Won’t you miss me at all?”

Ji Li stuck closer to him. “Teacher Qin Yue, do you want me to cry reluctantly for you on the spot?”

Qin Yue lost patience due to his lover’s jokes and firmly trapped him. “Compared with the crying scenes, I prefer the way you cry and beg me for mercy.”

These words suddenly came out, and Ji Li was so hot that he couldn’t reply.

Qin Yue didn’t allow it and continued to ask, ”Now you know how to be embarrassed? How dare you be so presumptuous when soaking in the hot spring in the afternoon? There is no limit to your flirting.”

“How was I presumptuous?” Ji Li refused to admit it. “How can I cry?”

Qin Yue poked his finger down, and he immediately heard a soft nasal sound.

It sounded like joy and hardship.

“You are just relying on the program to make a fuss. Once the recording ends the day after tomorrow, I’ll see if you can get out of bed.”

Ji Li was a bit unwilling to admit defeat and deliberately straightened his head to bump the other person.

Now it was Qin Yue’s turn to snort. “Are you still making trouble?”

“It is now even.” Ji Li kissed the side of the man’s neck, and the width of his smile didn’t decrease.

Perhaps after being with Qin Yue for a long time, Ji Li discovered another side of himself. He was very willing to try the flirtation that only couples could have.

The moment these words came out, Qin Yue pressed down and hugged him tightly. “Ji Li.”

“Huh?”

“I love you more than you can imagine.”

The calm tone sounded serious.

“……”

Ji Li’s smile froze, and a sore feeling rose in his heart for no reason.

There was no specific time and scene. It was just a simple playful hug, but Qin Yue suddenly held up his sincere heart.

He silently hugged Qin Yue back while thinking in his heart, ‘Me too.’

***

For the next three days, the show was filmed as usual.

In the name of the reality show filming, Ji Li and Qin Yue traveled to the filming locations from the movie as well as many areas that they hadn’t been to.

After the reality show finished recording, Qin Yue left directly for the United States while Ji Li followed the program team back to China.

Yu Fuya had arranged enough rest time for Ji Li and also sent over several new scripts screened by the team. This allowed him to take his time to choose slowly.

Half a month later, Ji Li finally ushered in an announcement of official business. The movie ‘Special Operations’ was officially set to be released on July 1st!

The moment the first version of the trailer came out, it completely detonated the hot search!
