A Contractual Marriage with the Best Leading Actor - Chapter 3
Fifty Million (1.3)
The man in front of him was just like how his fans described him to be.
In fact, there was no need for an introduction. Who on earth hasn’t heard of Xi Chengyun?
The renowned actor Xi Chengyun.The very man who won multiple awards for the Best Leading Actor. A man from an estimable family and whose current popularity is unrivaled, like the sun in the mid sky. How could anyone not know of him?
While Bai Qi was looking at him, the other man was peering at him through lidded eyes as well.
Xi Chengyun had never met Bai Qi.
Jiang Fangcheng was one who liked pretty things. It doesn’t take much to guess that his little boyfriend would be a looker.
However, Xi Chengyun never thought that the person would be so exceptionally lovely… and neat looking to boot.
Swaddled in his cheese-colored down jacket, the young man looked like a creamy custard bun. It was as if the sweet filling would ooze out of him with just a tiny squeeze.
The fur around his hood was all wet and droopy after being under the rain. All this, in addition to his beautiful features, made him look like a poor little thing.
“Bring me a hairdryer,” Xi Chengyun said.
The waiter acknowledged and proceeded with his request.
Bai Qi took a seat.
With his shades still fixed at his nose bridge, the humongous-looking bodyguard grabbed the hairdryer with his meaty fingers. Then, he went on to dry Bai Qi’s hair and hood even before Bai Qi had a chance to speak.
Bai Qi scrunched his nose.
How should he put it?
It was just… strange.
Even their surnames were different.
How could Xi Chengyun be Jiang Fangcheng’s brother?
Even their looks were completely different!
By the time he was completely dried off, he was starting to get a little dizzy from the heat that enveloped the room.
“The Secretary of the Jiang Group tried to contact you but failed,” Xi Chengyun uttered in a calm voice.
Bai Qi tried his best to recall. “Oh, I think something like that did happen…”
“You didn’t answer?” Xi Chengyun asked.
Bai Qi replied, “ En… but still, you can’t blame me for that. He messaged me saying that he’s the Secretary of Jiang Fancheng’s father. Jiang Fangcheng told me that his dad is a pig slaughterer. How should I have known that even pig slaughterers have Secretaries? I thought it was a new way of conning people.”
“…” Xi Chengyun responded.
Xi Chengyun’s manager couldn’t take it any longer. “Isn’t that just BS? What ‘pig killing’ was he even talking about? His dad is the boss of the Jiang Group.”
Xi Chengyun took another look at the young man in front of him.
His hair was now a lot fluffier after the blow-dry. Even after being deceived, there wasn’t any sign of sadness on his face. Instead, he looked particularly cute and innocent.
“So, do I look like a liar to you?” The corner of Xi Chengyun’s mouth curved upwards. He may have been trying to smile. Though, that smile didn’t reach his eyes. His jet-black eyes conveyed a slight sense of indifference.
Bai Qi shook his head. “Of course not.”
Xi Chengyun’s features were richly endowed by the heavens. No one could possibly replicate them even by going under the knife.
Xi Chengyun smiled as he nodded. Subsequently, he took a checkbook from his manager and tore off a page. He then filled it out and signed it. He placed it in front of Bai Qi.
“I’ll give you fifty million…”
Oh, I know. You want me to take this fifty million and leave your brother alone, am I right?
Hey, well, I couldn’t possibly…
Bai Qi pursed his lips. Without waiting for his response, Xi Chengyun quickly added, “to act as my companion for some time.”
Now, this got Bai Qi excited.
Isn’t this such a coincidence?
「OP, go find a better boyfriend! Bring him to the wedding and annoy the heck out of that douche bag. The guy you find better be someone who is taller, richer, more handsome, and more gentle than that douche. He’d also better be someone who drives a luxury car, is dressed in a suit, and wears luxury watches. Heh, that douche will be mad as hell when he sees that man holding you in his arms.」
Ah, this is such a coincidence. Isn’t that very man standing right in front of me?
What’s more, he’s that douche’s older brother!
Isn’t this even more exciting?
Such things don’t even happen in dramas!
Xi Chengyun took note of his expression. “I know that my request is quite sudden.”
Baba, it’s not sudden at all.
Baba, fifty million is way too good.
“Still, I hope you’ll consider this carefully.” Xi Chengyun paused and then continued, “There’s no way Jiang Fangcheng’s engagement will change. You have no future with him. By turning to another man, might help you to walk out of your sad relationship. I’ll give you one week to make up your mind…”
“Sure.” Bai Qi nodded swiftly in agreement. “Let’s get to it now, there’s no need to wait for a week.”
Due to the wind, the fur above his little head fluttered upwards. They, too, swayed up and down as he nodded. His beady eyes shone like precious jewels.
“No kidding, I can be all things. All from a cute and pure white lotus to a flirtatious and calculative minx! I can even fake a pregnancy, an abortion, a breakup, and get into a quarrel with you! Please, dear sir, do tell, which type do you want me to be?” Bai Qi said firmly.
Xi Chengyun’s manager was dumbstruck.
This is… not like what we had expected… There’s no sign of anger, grief, or tears. Eh, and why on earth is he so excited?
