A Contractual Marriage with the Best Leading Actor - Chapter 4
In the private room of the cafe, both parties happily came to an agreement.
“Xi-ge is very busy. Let me send you back to campus,” declared the short and stubby manager, Shang Guang.
Bai Qi nodded in agreement. He didn’t mind the arrangement.
Shang Guang let out a sigh of relief. He thought, looks like this boy isn’t a troublemaker. That’s good, it seemed like they didn’t choose the wrong person.
Shang Guang turned around and went to fetch an umbrella. Bai Qi stood there for a few seconds, gave it a bit of thought, then looked up and asked Xi Chengyun, “Erm, Mr. Xi, if it’s possible… could I get a bank card instead of a check?”
It’s way too troublesome to withdraw money with a check. You’d have to go through all sorts of verifications.
Xi Chengyun looked like he had a good temper, showing a slight grin as he said, “No problem.”
Shang Guang came back with an umbrella. Just then, he heard Bai Qi asking, “Hmm. Although employing a fake partner doesn’t require a contract… do we really not need to have something as proof?”
Shang Guang was intrigued. “What’s there to be scared of? Scared that you’ll be greedy?” He took a quick glance at Xi Chengyun. Shang Guang tried to mask the look of awe and fear in his eyes. Then, he turned back to Bai Qi, slightly smiling as he said, “You can try.”
Bai Qi nodded, looking exceptionally obedient.
Shang Guang smiled and reached out to pat Bai Qi on the shoulder. However, he self-consciously withdrew his arm before he touched him.
“Huh?” Bai Qi said.
Shang Guang pushed the door of the room open. Then, he headed out first with Bai Qi. He started speaking as they walked down the stairs. “Well, since you’ve already agreed to the request… You’re no longer Jiang Fangcheng’s boyfriend. You’re now Xi-ge’s erm… fiance. So you’ve got to be more careful about physical contact with others.”
Even if it’s fake, as long as it’s within the period of the contract, Bai Qi belongs to Xi Chengyun. Moreover, Xi-ge can be pretty territorial… thought Shang Guang. It’s just that others didn’t know about it.
Bai Qi behaved very professionally. “Then, can I trouble Shang-ge to prepare a detailed list of things for me to take note of?”
Shang Guang was all smiles when he heard Bai Qi calling him ‘Shang-ge’.
“Ah, we were supposed to prepare it for you in the first place. I’ll send someone to bring it to you within the next two days.”
This little kid is so cultured and sharp! This will make our lives so much easier!
Shang Guang accompanied him back to the black SUV.
Shang Guang continued with his careful reminders even after getting into the car. “You can’t let anyone else know about this. You also shouldn’t show any changes of emotion, just act as you did before. Uh, of course, you’re not a professional actor, so just try your best.”
It just so happened that same-sex marriage was legalized this year.
That doesn’t seem to be a problem…
Bai Qi crooked his head and looked at Shang Guang. “Ah, so we have to get our marriage certificate too? Isn’t Mr. Xi worried that someone will spill the secret?”
“It’s a given that you’d have to get your certificate. However, the divorce would be on your track record in the future. If you were to remarry, it’ll be considered a second marriage. That’s why Xi-ge has prepared a generous remuneration for you.”
Bai Qi nodded outrightly.
By taking another’s money and □□, this should be expected.
Shang Guang was now relieved. He then asked, “Do you use Weibo?”
“We can’t make up for the past, but from today onwards, you can start vaguely posting some alluding content on Weibo. Post stuff about the life that you have after getting into a relationship. You can also repost content from Xi-ge and his studio’s Weibo, maybe some fanmade edits and such too…Otherwise, the sudden marriage will be way too obvious.”
Bai Qi agreed to each request.
By the time Shang Guang was done, the car had already been parked in front of the school gates for a few minutes.
“Alright, I’ll stop going on at it. Xi-ge is very busy and I’ve given you my phone number, so contact me if you’ve got any questions. Xi-ge’s assistant can help you if it’s only a small matter,” Shang Guang said as he sent Bai Qi off the car.
No matter how he looked at it, it was not a good idea for a young person to get married at the peak of their success. Regardless of the reason for it.
However, he couldn’t change Xi-ge’s decision.
Let’s just hope that in the end… everything will go well.
