Certificate of Conformity - Chapter 24 (2)
2.8- Face slapping the Entertainment Circle Bigshot (8)
Su Jue’s face was both blue and white. He didn’t know whether the man was really stupid or just pretending to be stupid. His meaning was already so obvious, can it be more obvious ah? Furthermore, the man was experienced. Did that mean that he already had many lovers before? Was he the gong or the shou? Anyway, now that the man had decided to keep him, he will be his for 10 years.
His heart was inexplicably glad that there had been a very clear clause in the contract. It stated that during the 10 years of the contract, one party cannot have a relationship without the permission of the other.
Looking at the face of the beautiful youth beside him, multiple emotions crossed the youth’s face. One moment, his lips were tightly pursed, then the next he curved the corners of his lips into a grin. Chen Heng couldn’t help but urge him: “Have you decided?”
Su Jue immediately returned to his senses. He shook his head vigorously, “No. I’m still not yet ready.”
Chen Heng’s brows wrinkled slightly and he confirmed again: “You don’t really want to?”
Su Jue moved his mouth. Want ah! But he wanted the man more ah! Unfortunately he still had to wait two more years.
His shoulders couldn’t help but droop, “Oh.”
Chen Heng waved his hand at the bystanders and said: “You go out first.”
When the crowd had finally dispersed, he turned to the gloomy Su Jue and spoke, “Let’s go back too ba.” This meticulously planned night was ruined. He had originally prepared a lot of passionate and interesting stuffs for Su Jue. It was said that they could make people feel □□. Reportedly, that was what the club was known for.
This kid was really stubborn. He didn’t know if the beautiful boys he had planted in his school could catch the kid’s heart.
The two of them walked out of the room in silence.
Occasionally, using the corners of his eye, he glanced at the man beside him. He felt that the aura around his body was somewhat cold. Su Jue paused for a moment and hesitantly asked: “Are you angry?”
“No.” He replied bluntly.
Although he said he wasn’t angry, Su Jue’s mouth pursed. He too wasn’t happy. He was brought by the man to this sort of place to enjoy a night of *. He definitely didn’t want this sort of gift. At first, he thought that the gift the other had meant was himself (CH) but it turned out to be this kind of gift. He was confused and didn’t know whether the man really liked him or not.
Although the man didn’t like others, Su Jue was also aware that if one truly liked a person, they would not send that person to another’s bed.
But if he didn’t like him, then at that time, for what reason did he want to keep him?
Su Jue really couldn’t understand. Each time he thought that the other might not truly like him, he felt like there was a knife cutting through his heart. He himself knew that he liked the man. He liked his body. He liked his smile. He liked everything about him.
These strange feelings made him a bit terrified but he couldn’t help but be attracted.
If only he was alone.
As he was letting his imagination run wild, Chen Heng suddenly stopped and Su Jue looked up blankly, “What’s wrong?”
“Ran into an old friend.”
Just as he spoke, a few big bellied old men arrived across them. Each of them had a young-looking boy in their arms. The boys were beautifully delicate and charmingly coquettish. They acted as if they were boneless, their delicate bodies leaning against their golden masters allowing their bodies to be manipulated by them.
“Yo, I thought I was wrong but Lao Chen, it really is you.”
Beady eyes flashed green, and his eyes naturally fell on Su Jue’s body, “Tsk. Lao Chen, this was the treasure that you’ve held in your heart right? Truly beautiful. None of these unrestrained wenches in our arms can compare with the Su family’s young master ah.”
The original host’s friends, these pack of rogues, have nothing to do all day so they liked to come here to play. Because of their excessive indulgence to their desires, their faces looked as if they had been in a vegetarian diet and their empty sexual diet looked wretched. The original host himself was not a good man. Mingling with these kinds of people all day, if he didn’t like Su Jue, he also probably wouldn’t restrain his desires.
He saw someone extend their salted pig’s hand to touch Su Jue’s face. Chen Heng’s eyes were cold and he stepped up in front of Su Jue to block it.
“I’m going first. You have a good time. Today’s drinks are on me.”
“Don’t hurry ah. The night life is just beginning.” Another man beside the one with beady eyes opened his mouth revealing his missing teeth. “They said that there will be a wonderful show tonight. It still won’t be too late to watch before it is finished ah.”
Needless to say, those shows must be very sensual.
Chen Heng didn’t have any interest in it and replied perfunctorily, “I can’t. I have something to do tomorrow.”
“Don’t…ah! You already came to this kind of place. Don’t you need to take young master Su to have a good experience ah?”
One after another, they began to persuade him. They glanced obscenely at Su Jue, who was behind Chen Heng, wanting to get a chance to jump at him.
Su Jue frowned. He couldn’t believe that the man knew this group of trashy people. He pulled on Chen Heng’s hand and said seriously: “In the future, don’t deal with these sorts of people.” His voice wasn’t too loud nor too soft. It was just enough for everyone in the room to hear.
The beady green eyed man earlier heard it and his face darkened, “What did you say we are? What kind of persons are we? Why don’t you tell us?”
“Young Master Su, this night is not like the past. You have nothing now. You shouldn’t be so arrogant.”
“Tsk…this delicate and fair meat seems like has quite a temper. After Lao Chen is tired of playing with you, believe it or not, I’ll fuck you until you can’t get out of bed.”
As everyone joined in expressing their thoughts, their words became more and more obscene. On hearing it, Su Jue’s face flushed red in anger. His amber eyes seemed to burst out with raging hot fury which made his eyes look as if it were shining. It made his body exude an imposing and inviolable pressure.
This kind of natural arrogance, more often that not can stimulate the darkness in one’s heart. The original ridiculing look in his eyes changed and emitted a faint sense of being pressured.
The tense atmosphere felt like it could shatter at any moment.
When he took in the expression in those people’s eyes, Chen Heng’s mouth curved in into a mocking smile. He began to humbly accept the duty of defending Su Jue: “He is my man now. He has always had a willful character. As my friends, please pardon it ba.”
“Lao Chen, it’s not about what we want to do. It’s your little lover’s words first that hurt people.”
Chen Heng pretended to feel embarrassed, “I’ll invite you out to drink another day as an apology. We’re all friends here. There’s no need to be so stiff with each other.”
Su Jue who was being protected behind Chen Heng, was unable to stand it any longer. He didn’t understand why the man would want to be with this sort of crowd, never mind that they were his friends. If it wasn’t for the look in the man’s eyes telling him to stop talking, he would have had already left.
“I’m not an unreasonable man. So, why don’t you let your little lover accompany us to drink and we forget this all happened?”
The green-eyed man had long coveted Su Jue. It was just that the original host, Chen Mu, had been the one to gain an advantage by striking first so he can only focus on doing this. At present, it wasn’t easy for him to get the chance to have a close contact with Su Jue. It was only natural that he wouldn’t let this opportunity go. When the man gets drunk, he would be able to do what ever he wanted with Su Jue. And when he sobers up, the rice would have already been cooked. If worse comes to worse, he could just settle it with money.
Of course, the other’s little scheme did not escape Chen Heng’s eyes. Just now, Su Jue’s refusal had put him in a very bad mood. These people also happened to pick this time to corner him by accident.
Chen Heng replied beaming a smile. He looked at Su Jue’s hurt expression and paused. He patted the back of the youth’s hand placatingly and bent closer to his ear: “I promise you, I’ll cut ties with them today.”
Clear and keen amber eyes flashed in surprise. When he had returned to his senses, he had already been pulled away by Chen Heng.
The group of people grandly arrived at the luxurious private booth. Green-eyes snapped his fingers and a server wearing a vest brought in a box of beer. There was already a box full of cocktails and several bottles of red wine in the booth. Green-eyes had mixed several types of liquor and pushed the glass in front of Su Jue.
“We have five people here. If you drink five glasses of these, we’ll forget about everything that happened today.”
Su Jue was silent for a few seconds before reaching out for the glass of liquor but Chen Heng quickly grabbed the glass and held it in his hand.
“Don’t drink.” He blurted out. The man only smiled and stood up, glass still in hand.
“It’s boring to just drink ah,” Chen Heng walked up to green-eyes. “How about we play ‘Dice’? Same rules apply. Pour the same amount of wine into different glasses, shake and roll the dice, and drink the corresponding number cup as the number you rolled. Of course, you can also choose not to drink but if you don’t drink you have to take off a piece of clothing on you.”
A smile slowly appeared in the man’s eyes, “Do you agree?”
Green eyes didn’t like it at first, but when he heard about the stripping part, his eyes suddenly gleamed lust, “Okay. If that’s what you say.”
Next, everyone began to pour the wine. Everyone was laughing, clapping and cheering. Along with the booming music in the room, the atmosphere was very lively.
Looking at the way the group was cheering and having fun, Su Jue didn’t know what to do. He was not afraid. It was just that he was a bad drinker and he was afraid of losing face to the man. Chen Heng seemed to be aware of his concerns. Leaning in to Su Jue’s ear, he calmly said: “Don’t worry, I’m here.”
It was merely a short sentence, but it dissipated all the worries in Su Jue’s heart.
Even without reason, he believed him. The man will surely settle this matter.
Green-eye’s skill in shaking the dice was not bad. Basically, the numbers he rolled, which corresponded to how much he had to drink was not many. Occasionally, he would slip and drink several glasses full of wine which was just a piece of cake for him. It was just a pity that he was faced with Chen Heng. Each time Chen Heng rolled, he can accurately get the points he wanted. After a few rounds, Green-eyes had drank until he was a little dizzy while Chen Heng still hadn’t drunk a drop of wine.
Everyone gradually knew what was going on. They actually met a dice shaker expert!
Someone took Su Jue from Chen Heng’s side and singled him out: “Lao Chen, we know that you’re quite fierce at this game. But this time, it was Su Jue who offended us, we think he should shake the dice.”
Chen Heng smiled, “Okay ah.”
He responded so simply that the other’s eyes inevitably gleamed in suspicion. Chen Heng directly stuffed the dice into Su Jue’s hand, “Come here ba.”
“En.” The youth glanced at Chen Heng and nodded lightly.
By the time Su Jue stopped shaking the dice, the others had already surrounded him, eagerly watching and anticipating the result. Coincidentally, it finally fell on Su Jue’s fair and lustrous hand. The youth paused and looked at Chen Heng again. Seeing a confident smile form on the man’s lips, somehow, a he also gave a low smile and took the opened the wooden cup to reveal the dice.
Everyone took a look. It was the exact amount. It was exactly five points. The corresponding glass is empty.
A bald, short and fat man stretched his large hands and banged it hard on the table, “You must have cheated!”
“What? Can’t afford to lose?” A pause then a sneer, “Or are you saying you want to see me undress?”
This time, Su Jue was different from his usual shy and reserved demeanor. He was like a sharp sword with his fierce temperament. The smile from the corner of his lips looked as sweet and enchanting as a devil’s flower concealing the potent poison it holds.
When he spoke out his thoughts, baldy raged out in humiliation, “We’re already here accompanying you to play and you don’t even leave us any face.”
Green-eyes, who was shirtless and had just rested for a while on the sofa, unsteadily walked over. He couldn’t drink anymore wine just now, and was forced to take off a piece of his clothes. He also leaned most of his body towards the male pet beside him. His green-eyes widened and he moved his tongue to say: “Don’t speak nonsense. Since they have entered our territory today, they’re not going to leave unscathed.”
Seeing the group of people approaching Chen Heng, Su Jue immediately grabbed Chen Heng and pulled him behind his back, “Their goal is me. You go run.”
Look at this kid with small arms and thin legs, does he think he can protect him?
Chen Heng sneered. He reached out to grab the back of the youth’s collar and easily pulled him behind, “Fight them? You’re still an amateur.”
“Watch clearly. Learn and study it in the future.”
After saying those words to Su Jue behind him, Chen Heng rolled up his sleeves and began to beat people up.
The youth calmly stood on one side, his lightly colored eyes flashing a clear light. In his eyes, Chen Heng looked proud. Long straight legs rapidly moved. Each move was like moving clouds and flowing water not unlike an unrivaled martial arts expert, crushing his opponents beneath his feet.
Some had their noses broken, some others had their teeth knocked out and dark red blood splattered everywhere. It was a bloody scene. Su Jue seemed to be in a trance, his gaze firmly locked on the man in the middle. He was almost fascinated in watching the man’s perfectly structured posture with his fiery look seemingly penetrating through the thin clothes. You wouldn’t even need to guess to be sure that his lower body was strong and perfect.
Compared to him, Su Jue was indeed much too weak. He didn’t even know when he would have the ability to press the man down.
These middle-aged men may have been good fighters when they were young, but now they have been hollowed out by wine. Chen Heng easily beat them to the ground. Inside the large room, the anguished screams and wails were endless.
Sensing the small male pet trembling and trying to make a call on the phone for help, Chen Heng raised his eyebrows. He did not speak, only extending his hand towards the other.
The little male pet was nearly scared to tears. He obediently handed over the phone. Chen Heng took the phone and crushes it in front of him.
“….” What monstrous strength ah!
Chen Heng threw away the scraps of the phone in his hand. He cracked his knuckles and spoke monotonously to the others: “Take off your clothes.”
Ten minutes later, Chen Heng easily left the booth with Su Jue.
As for the people left in the booth, he used the torn clothes to tie them up and stuff their mouths. Naturally, they weren’t even left with a single piece of cloth in their whole body.
On the way back, Su Jue watched him admiringly and curiously asked, “Back there, what method did you use to make me roll a 5 ah?”
“Oh. You actually rolled a 3. I moved the table when no one was paying attention.”
“Then do you win each time you gamble?”
“No.” Chen Heng smiled indifferently, “I don’t like gambling.”
“En.” Recalling the man’s excellent appearance during the fight just now, Su Jue leaned his head on the glass. His mouth curved and he let out a giggle.
What should he do? He liked him even more.
“What are you laughing at?”
He heard Chen Heng’s surprised voice near his ear. Su Jue returned to his senses. With a light smile on his face, he looked up at the man. In the dark car, the man’s black eyes seemed like two mysterious gemstones. Glistening amidst the dim lighting. Su Jue felt like he could almost drown looking at the man’s deep eyes.
“Chen Mu.” This was the first time he called out his name.
“I wish my 20th birthday would come soon.” So he can quickly eat him up.
Chen Heng’s lips hooked up into a smile, “What a silly thing to say.” He would still need to carryout his plan within two years. He didn’t want time to pass by too fast.
Su Jue restrained the smile on his face but he had inwardly already made up his mind.
He wanted to be a strong, outstanding person, worthy of the man.
After Chen Heng sent Su Jue back to school, he began to wait for Meng Tianyou’s call. They haven’t gotten in contact since the last time they had exchanged business cards. After all the original host was a nouveau riche. Even if Meng Tianyou was the second son who wasn’t valued much by the Meng clan, he still had a higher social status than the original host. It was understandable that he wouldn’t lower himself to make friends with him.
The original host also has an advantage. It was that he had a thick face. Now that Chen Heng had now become Chen Mu, it was also natural that he would adapt to what Chen Mu would do and take the initiative to call Meng Tianyou.
He was originally prepared to make several phone calls, but he didn’t expect the call to get picked up just after a few rings.
He heard Meng Tianyou’s deep and refined voice come through the phone: “Hello?”
“Chief Meng, Still remember me?”
“Of course I remember.” A light laugh sounded from the other side. With a rough magnetic voice, he spoke in a half-true half-false tone: “I have actually been waiting for Chief Chen’s call.”
Chen Heng did not take his words seriously but his mouth let out a chuckle, “Last time, we talked about playing golf together. When are you free? We can go out and meet.”
“Okay ah” Meng Tianyou replied with a laugh, “Is this Saturday okay?”
“Of course it is.” Chen Heng’s eyes fell down to the financial and entertainment newspaper on the table, “I’m an unemployed vagrant now. I am free any day.”
“Hahaha, Chief Chen is indeed humorous.”
After hanging up, Chen Heng opened the newspaper and read about the page containing information about Meng Tianyou.
The paper published nothing but a few tabloid gossips which definitely cannot be ascertained if they were true or false. It mentioned that Meng Tianyou’s birth mother was actually Meng Jianxiong’s, the late boss of the Meng Clan, mistress. Meng Tianyou as a child grew up beside his mother before he was picked up by Meng Jianxiong when he was in his teens.
It was said that before Meng Jianxiong’s death, he had considered transferring 50% of Meng clans shares over to Meng Tianyou. It was suppose to make up for the years where he hadn’t been there for him. Later, for some unknown reasons, the Meng Clan was inherited by Meng Changfeng.
It seems that Meng Changfeng had experienced a lot of internal familial struggles before becoming the chairman of the Meng group.
History was written by the victors, the losers are always in the wrong. There’s nothing more to say about it.
Chen Heng’s impression of Meng Changfeng was actually not bad. Although he hadn’t formally crossed swords with him, being capable of expanding Meng Group to triple its size in just three years, Meng Changfeng did indeed have talent in business.
The stronger Meng Changfeng was, the sweeter the fruits of victory would be in the future.
And he absolutely wouldn’t repeat the tragic end of the original host.
Because he didn’t want to waste his time waiting, Chen Heng decided to invest in a talent-seeking type variety show. The show that would have been a hit one year later was now being produced ahead of schedule.
According to the original plotline, Su Jue would have participated in the singing program of that show. His dazzling appearance and good singing voice made him an overnight celebrity, leaving the one in second place far behind.
Before, because the main investor had another person, the original host had spent a lot of effort to crown Su Jue as the champion. After all, although Su Jue had the qualifications for being the champion, these kind of talent shows all have some dark secrets behind them. If Su Jue did not have the original host as a backer, it would be impossible for him to win as the champion.
Later, after Su Jue became famous, many bosses wanted to support him but Su Jue firmly refused. At that time, the original host was very moved. He thought that Su Jue really loved him. Therefore when Meng Changfeng entered the picture, Su Jue really found true love. In the blink of an eye, he swatted his butt and dumped the original host.
Chen Heng thought. This time he must stop Su Jue from falling in love with Meng Changfeng.
Thinking that, he walked towards the window and took out his phone to make a call.
“How are things going about?” Seriously listening to the report on the other end, Chen Heng took note of it and wrinkled his brows, “He didn’t take the bait?……En. I got it.”
Putting away his phone, he stared at the bright lights in the distance. Chen Heng slightly narrowed his eyes. He didn’t know how hard it is for that boy, Su Jue. He had sent so many beautiful boys and girls to seduce him but surprisingly, he wasn’t even moved.
It seems that he had to find another way.
Meanwhile, Su Jue was lying on his bed tossing and turning around. He couldn’t sleep. Ever since he got back to school, aside from the first day, the man hadn’t called him. There wasn’t even a single text message. He couldn’t help thinking, what really was the relationship between them? Was it really just a deal?
If it really was just a deal, at least he would still be able to get his body. But the man said he wouldn’t sleep with him until he was 20 years old. It must definitely be because he treasured him that he didn’t want to hurt him right? But he wanted to be hurt ah.
The more the youth thought about it, the more he couldn’t sleep. It was like there was a million ants crawling around his heart.
How about if he just called him? As soon as this idea crossed his mind, he immediately rejected it. No. It was already really late. It might disturb his rest.
That’s what he thought but his right hand was out of control. He fished out his phone and went over to Chen Mu’s contact information and opened the message icon.
—Are you asleep? Deleted.
—School is so boring ah. Deleted.
—I miss you. It seems to sappy. Deleted
—Why haven’t you called me? Too whiny. Not good. Deleted.
Ah! Wrong button!
Su Jue stared at the message being sent, stupefied. He wanted to stop it from being sent. Ding dong. The phone beeped as the message was sent successfully.
T/N: Welp, I’m sorry for the wait. It was a mix of travelling, exams and Christmas. At least I got this out before christmas! Consider this my gift to you lovelies!
Also feel free to support me on ko-fi!
