Song Fei remained silent and so did Yan Jiang.
Only when they stopped the car did Yan Jiang tell Song Fei. “We have arrived.”
Song Fei looked up and saw the barbeque shop. She removed the seatbelt, alighted the car and entered the shop with Yan Jiang. The barbeque shop looked very high-class and didn’t have a lot of customers. However, the air was filled with a tempting fragrance.
Yan Jiang asked for a private room and brought Song Fei into it.
Song Fei and Yan Jiang sat opposite each other. Yan Jiang ordered Song Fei’s favorite food. Song Fei heard him say the names of the dishes and said, “You have a similar taste to me.”
“We are having a meal together. Of course I will order your favorite dishes.” Meeting Song Fei’s emotionless eyes, Yan Jiang said frankly, “After all, I am wooing you.”
Song Fei was caught off-guard by his confession and felt a rush of warmth. Luckily, she was wearing a hat and no one could see her expression.
Yan Jiang took off his baseball cap and saw that Song Fei was still wearing it. He said, “Take off your cap. The air-conditioning is turned on in the house. Won’t it be hot wearing a cap? Moreover, this is a private room. No one will notice us.”
Song Fei took off her hat in a swift manner.
Realizing that Song Fei’s ears were slightly red, Yan Jiang took a few more glances. Under the light, Song Fei’s ears were so thin that they were translucent and very adorable.
Song Fei felt slightly uneasy. She looked down and pretended to drink some water. After finishing it, she realized that Yan Jiang was still staring at her with a perverted look in his eyes. She flew into a rage out of humiliation and scolded him. “What are you looking at? It’s not like you haven’t seen me before.”
Yan Jiang said sincerely, “I will never get tired of looking at you.”
“What’s the matter with you?” Song Fei pulled a long face to cover up her shyness. “Why are you so flirty? Are you itching for a beating?” Song Fei’s eyes turned visibly cold.
Yan Jiang hurriedly looked down and stared at the grill.
Song Fei’s stomach needed proper nourishment. She couldn’t eat too much barbeque— she could only taste it. Yan Jiang grilled some of each ingredient for her. He waited until Song Fei was full before roasting it for himself.
Song Fei poured herself a glass of lemon water. She held the glass and took a sip occasionally. Looking at Yan Jiang’s long silver hair, Song Fei’s lips parted slightly before she shut them again.
It was very strange that some words were stuck at the tip of her tongue. This was something Song Fei had never experienced before.
Yan Jiang was full. He glanced at Song Fei, who was deep in thought. “Do you have something to tell me?” In this world, Song Ci and Yan Jiang knew Song Fei the best.
Song Fei asked in surprise, “Why do you ask?”
Yan Jiang said, “You always like to touch something repeatedly when you are troubled.” Song Fei had already touched her glass dozens of times.
Song Fei also knew her own habits.
She put down the glass. “Yan Jiang.”
Since waking up, this was the first time Song Fei addressed Yan Jiang by his full name. Yan Jiang subconsciously sat up straight and swallowed hard, before giving a grunt of acknowledgment.
Song Fei looked elsewhere and said, “The day after tomorrow, I will be setting off for Congo to do research with my teacher.” Song Fei didn’t feel relieved when she finally told him about this. Instead, she felt even more nervous.
She somewhat detested this uncontrollable side of herself.
Yan Jiang’s expression froze as his smile faded.
“How long will you be gone for?” He spoke calmly, as if he had already accepted this fact.
Song Fei said, “At least a year.”
Yan Jiang thought for a moment and suddenly asked, “Can you wait for another two days?”
Song Fei asked, “Why?”
Yan Jiang smiled at her and said, “I have a lot of things to settle here. I have signed several endorsement contracts previously and it will be troublesome to cancel them at the last minute. Give me three days to settle them.”
Song Fei understood his underlying meaning.
“What are you going to do?” Song Fei suspected that she had misunderstood him.
Yan Jiang smiled even more radiantly and brightly. Song Fei was shocked by the glow.
“I will go with you.” Yan Jiang picked up the glass of lemon water and finished it in one gulp. He put down the glass and his eyes gradually turned determined. He said, “I am serious about wooing you. Congo is such a chaotic place. I am worried about letting you go alone.”
“You don’t have to do this…” Yan Jiang interrupted Song Fei just as she started talking.
He said, “Song Fei, you are smarter than me and your future is more promising. What you are doing is for the good of all mankind. I cannot stop you from doing it. If I cannot stop you from giving up your dreams and I can’t see you in danger alone, I can only go with you. As for work…”
Yan Jiang shrugged nonchalantly. “It doesn’t make a difference whether I’m in the entertainment circle or not. But I can’t live without you.” As he spoke, the eyes of that man who always looked soft and easy to bully burned with passion.
Song Fei was slightly stunned.
At this moment, she suddenly felt a sense of danger.
All along, she had thought that she could control Yan Jiang. But at this moment, she suddenly realized that she might have reversed her position. Yan Jiang was no longer that weak and timid little coward who didn’t even dare to fight back when he was bullied.
In the years that she had been in a coma, that weak youth from back then had already become as strong as a leopard. He was as gentle and adorable as a cat in his sleep, but his eyes were filled with murderous intent!
Yan Jiang didn’t inform Song Ci about his decision to leave the industry and follow Song Fei to Congo. This morning, Song Ci and Han Zhan arrived at Shunchen Airport with their luggage, preparing to take a flight to Haicheng and transfer to Vienna.
]In the VIP waiting room of the airport, Song Ci had nothing else to do and opened her Weibo account. As usual, she entered the hottest topics on Weibo, but was shocked by the huge number of # Yan Jiang Retires from the entertainment circles, # Yan Jiang Retires #, # Yan Jiang Entertainment #, # The World is Large, We’ll Meet Him Again # Shocked
Song Ci hurriedly clicked on the trending topic and saw Yan Jiang’s statement not long ago. The statement had already broken 400,000 saves.
The influence of a top-tier influencer was truly terrifying.
At first, Song Ci thought it was just another rumor. But when she saw that statement, she realized it was true.
In the announcement, Yan Jiang wrote:
Good morning, everyone.
In autumn five years ago, I officially stepped into the entertainment circles and debuted as an actor. Some people said that Yan Jiang was at the peak of his career, and he will succeed and fail because of his face. I agreed with this statement because being too handsome is indeed a crime.
As an actor, it is my regret that I don’t have more outstanding works. After five years of wasted time, I realize that I am not suitable for the entertainment industry. After thinking it over, I decided to retreat from the industry.
I know that me leaving the entertainment circles would have all the seniors and juniors, who have been crushed by my popularity all these years, scheering. Here, I want to apologize to all of you: I am sorry. I shouldn’t have been born so handsome and so likable, but I have no choice. Face is something that comes naturally from the womb. You can’t be envious.
I also wanted to tell some big bosses who have been coveting me for so many years and wanting to be her sugar mommy: I am sorry, I have retired from the entertainment circles. The next time I see you, I will still beat you up so badly that your parents won’t recognize you.
Finally, I want to thank all the outstanding fans who have been through thick and thin with me all these years. I want to say one thing: The world is huge. We will meet again if we are fated!
