Chapter 79 . 1 — It’s okay to be stupid

Heavenly Sea Charity Show was held two days before Christmas, a western holiday . This holiday was gaining popularity in the east . Perhaps, they didn’t need to care about it in the past . But off late, as people fell in love, many had started paying more and more attention to this holiday .

Qin Jiran was shooting scenes the day before Christmas . Jiang Xiaobin, who was in charge of his phone, on seeing the text message, couldn’t resist a laugh .

“What are you laughing about?” Once Qin Jiran was done with his shot, he looked over and found Jiang Xiaobin laughing brazenly as he stared at his phone . He took his phone from his hand .

[Brother Qin, tomorrow is Christmas . In order to prevent you from forgetting this holiday, I sent this notice! You have to remember to give sister-in-law a gift . Otherwise, you might be driven to the living room to sleep!]

Zhan Minghui had sent this text . At the end of the text, he’d used a series of symbols to create a smiley face which looked cheekier than Jiang Xiaobin’s .

“Brother Zhan speaks reasonably . Brother Qin, have you prepared the gift? We’ve to always give presents at Christmas . ” Jiang Xiaobin added .

Qin Jiran scrunched his eyebrows . He’d never thought about preparing gifts . In the past, he’d never even thought of Christmas . Let alone this type of foreign holidays, he had never found Chinese New Year special . After all, he was all alone . Was there a point in celebrating?

“What would be suitable to gift?” Those without experience could only ask a bystander’s opinion .

“Naturally, you have to gift woman flowers and jewelry . President Su will probably like it too . ” Jiang Xiaobin replied with certainty . The moment he finished his words, Qin Jiran turned around and left .

Asking someone else what to gift their beloved was extremely stupid . He would naturally know what to gift his sweetheart . Why did he need to ask someone else‽

Qin Jiran thought that gifting flowers and whatnot were highly unreliable . President Su liked bonsai!

How about gifting her a bonsai? However, this thought lasted but for a moment before being trashed . It’s not romantic at all!

Usually, Qin Jiran didn’t have scenes to shoot in the afternoon but he would still stay with the crew to watch over . After all, he held the title of the co-director as well . Yet this afternoon, Qin Jiran left . When Jiang Xiaobin was driven away by Qin Jiran, his look seemed to say ‘I should’ve done this a long time ago’ .

Needless to say, Qin Jiran went to buy gifts . But, he hadn’t thought of what to buy yet . So, he headed to a hugely popular mall to casually shop around .

It was Christmas Eve and the mall was brimming with a festive mood . All sorts of Santa Clauses appeared . Many shops prepared promotions and discounts for Christmas . The mall seemed lively and bustling as many people came and went .

A man like Qin Jiran, had caught many people’s attention as he shopped around . Although he wore a cap and scarf, his upright figure and surrounding aura were hard to miss . The passers-by couldn’t help but shoot an extra glance at him .

Despite the risk of being recognized at any moment, Qin Jiran still picked gifts for Su Yanyi .

Qin Jiran looked at the mall directory and decided to go to the women’s clothing section . He had never bought clothes for Yanyi before . He might as well give it a try .

Being the entertainment circle’s Film Emperor, Qin Jiran had made the right decision . This mall was a confluence of popular luxury brands . Qin Jiran walked around a few stores before finding suitable clothes for Su Yanyi . However, he didn’t find just one, but rather many…

This white shirt, Yanyi could wear for work . She could match this with her other work clothes .

Yanyi would probably like this body-hugging black pants .  

This blue skirt matches Yanyi’s style .  He remembered that she had a blue cloak . She could team this with that .

This bag is very beautiful too; it’s small and cute, suitable for Yanyi . Maybe, she could use this somehow .

As he kept on picking, Qin Jiran discovered that he couldn’t hold the many things he’d picked! Big and small bags piled up . This brought him trouble .

However, it was no big deal . Qin Jiran found a store and bought a couple more items . Then, he took the car keys and let people bring it to his car . These types of top-notch specialty stores did deliveries .

Without the fear of trouble, Qin Jiran was satisfied with his shopping . Clothes, pants, cloaks, jackets, hats, scarves, shoes, and bags . As long as he liked it, he bought them all . If he was unsure of the size, he would buy a size up and down . In any case, one of them would be fit Yanyi . Of course, Qin Jiran couldn’t promise that Yanyi would like them all . Therefore, he thought of buying more . In the end, there would be something that she would like . Even if it’s just one or two items, it wouldn’t be a waste .

Qin Jiran shopped in the women’s section for almost three hours . Although he was a bit tired, he was still unusually excited . He didn’t want to walk anymore . He deliberated a little before going over to the jewelry section . Even though he thought he shouldn’t listen to Jiang Xiaobin’s words completely, he could still take it into consideration .

What types of jewelry should he buy? Yanyi obviously didn’t lack any of this . It’s a matter of thoughts .

Qin Jiran was hesitant and decided to just walk around first . However, his gaze landed on a pair of rings . As a thought suddenly struck him, he turned despondent .

Though he and Yanyi were married, they had nothing besides a marriage certificate!

They had no wedding, banquet or a wedding dress, not to mention wedding rings . In the past, he didn’t think much about it . After all, he and Yanyi married due to contract . Even if they had these things, it would’ve been just fake . He didn’t think much about it . But now, it was different . He and Yanyi had feelings for one another . More than likely, Yanyi liked him too . Even though she might not love him yet . He was obviously unable to compare their feelings . But, at least he could prove that they could uphold this marriage!

With the pair of rings before him, Qin Jiran was lost in thoughts .  If he were to gift Yanyi a ring, would she accept it? Would she wear it?

If it were possible, Qin Jiran really hoped that he could put a ring on Yanyi . Even if it wasn’t the so-called wedding rings . Of course, he hoped that they could also wear the wedding rings that symbolize their status of being married .

“Mister, are you here to pick out rings? These are the newest models . Your girlfriend will definitely like it . ” The very eager salesgirl was smiling from ear to ear as she walked over .

Proposals during Christmas had a high success rate . Hence, selling wedding rings and whatnot was the top choice!

Qin Jiran was silent for a while . In the end, he shook his head . With a cold voice, “I don’t want rings . Let me look at something else . ”

Wait for a bit more . Gifting a ring had too deep a meaning . He didn’t want to excessively pressure Yanyi . He had plenty of patience . Once Yanyi liked him or liked him even more, he would personally put a ring on her .

Qin Jiran held a determined look . He was able to become an actor within the entertainment circle for Yanyi and accept the marriage under a contract . He had waited in silence for three years . He would continue to wait for her . This was a type of security in itself . He wasn’t worried .

“Ok . Besides rings, there is a lot of jewelry in the store . There’s necklaces, bracelets, anklets, earrings, stud earrings… gold, silver, diamond accessories, all sorts of jadeite and pearl accessories . Mister, what do you want to see first?”

Qin Jiran was expressionless . In reality, he was a bit confused . Women, are indeed very complicated creatures .

“Bracelets . Let me see it first . ” Qin Jiran thought about it .

Then, Qin Jiran spent about two hours in the jewelry store . With the salesgirl shooting him strange looks, he finally left .

Of course, Qin Jiran was well aware of that look following him . He also knew it wasn’t because he’d been discovered, but because he had bought one too many items .

Qin Jiran seemed to have bought one of each item except the rings . Some were expensive while others exquisite . There were gold and silver jewelry as well as jadeite and pearl . There were many varieties . It was the same as buying clothes . If he felt there was something Yanyi was bound to like, he’d pick it .

“Hehe, if I were to have such a rich boyfriend, I would definitely marry him . ” The moment Qin Jiran left, the salesgirl excitedly announced to her colleagues close by .

“I would marry too . Look at how generous he is . However, I think he looks pretty familiar . ” Another salesgirl was equally excited . They were envious of the rich man’s girlfriend .

It seemed like these salesgirls had never thought of who the gifts might’ve been for . His wife perhaps?

“He is a bit familiar . Have I seen him before? However, that handsome man never took off his scarf . The temperature inside the store is quite high . Did he do this on purpose?”

“Ah? Is he some celebrity then? Otherwise, why would he cover himself so tightly…”

Qin Jiran bought a bunch of gifts home . Going back and forth, he was finally done on his fourth trip . These gifts were naturally brought back to his bedroom . He then remembered how Su Yanyi would walk in without knocking on the door from time to time . Then, he placed the gifts in the drawers, thinking that Yanyi had best not see them .

Because Qin Jiran was busy with this, by the time he started cooking, it was late . When Su Yanyi returned home, she noticed the man who was busy inside the kitchen . She was unsure when it had started, but she had developed a penchant for staring at the man hustling around the kitchen . She wanted to walk in and see . She kept thinking that this scene was very warm . The feeling of a family made itself known .

This man probably loves his family a lot? Probably because he had no home since a young age so he particularly longed for one?

However, this was not just due to the feeling of family . Whenever she thought of how deeply in love the man was with her, Su Yanyi thought that his longing for a family was because the home had her!

Su Yanyi’s pride and confidence was all over . However, wasn’t this a man’s hard-work in order for a woman to be so confident? Only when a man is truly in love, the woman would feel extremely secure . This belonged to a man’s pride too!

“What did you make? It smells tasty . ” Su Yanyi walked up a few steps, watching the busy man . She couldn’t help but think of what she had coincidentally heard that afternoon . She thought about it and wanted to ask . However, in the end, she said something else .

So, what had Su Yanyi heard?

Earlier in the day she was tired and had decided to walk around when she heard Kang Zhong on the phone . Originally, she didn’t mind it . But then, she heard him say, “Jiran is gifting President Su a Christmas present . Let’s keep this a secret . ”

That’s when, Su Yanyi had found out . As it turned out, someone wanted to give her a gift . What type of gift would it be? Would he be giving it today or tomorrow? Should she pretend to not know? Otherwise, would there be a surprise?

Lately, Su Yanyi had been reading many books on relationships and feelings . Although her emotional IQ had obviously improved, she had no idea if she would ruin the surprise or not .

“Garlic chicken, spinach with shrimps, and Chinese yam with spare-rib soup . Are you hungry? It’s almost done . ”

“Hm . I’ll wait for you . ” Su Yanyi found a seat nearby and sat down . She really waited for him .

At this time, the invisible 001 couldn’t help but speak up .

[Master . Cooking with the Mr . Master is the easiest way to enhance your relationship with him!] The soft voice looked forward to this .


[I don’t know how to cook . ] Su Yanyi answered, without a hint of bashfulness .


[You can learn if you don’t know . There are a lot of cookbooks in the system . Many of them are extremely rare . As long as Master is willing to learn, there will definitely be no problems!] 001 looked at Su Yanyi with utmost hope .

[But the problem is I am not willing to!] Su Yanyi retorted faintly . She never held expectations for cooking food .


Two black lines appeared on 001’s virtual image . Did Master need to be this straightforward? This really wasted the system’s functions!

[Master, the functions in the system are easy to use . There are all sorts of advanced medical knowledge, extremely valuable and rare cooking recipes, as well as many assisting functions . But Master, you’ve never used them before . The system functions that you are using now are only one-thousandth of the complete system functions there are . Master, do you dislike me? Otherwise, why would you not use the functions more often?] 001 had been holding the words in for quite a long time . Its Master’s coldness led it into thinking that she disliked itself . It was really upset .


[I do dislike you a bit!]

001 did look a bit miserable but its soft look clearly didn’t sway Su Yanyi’s heart . Therefore, she continued to strike .

001’s stuffed bun like face immediately scrunched up . Tears welled up, threatening to fall . It looked extremely pitiful .

[Master, do you not want me anymore? I am very useful . I have been trying my best to help you pursue the Mr . Master . You can’t just abandon me!] 001 exclaimed pitifully .


[Speak normally!]

Su Yanyi still remained unmoved . She was unsatisfied with 001’s words in her heart . What did it mean by ‘she was trying to pursue Qin Jiran’? Wasn’t it the other way around? This was a stupid system . It only knew how to act cute!

[Oh!] I have been speaking normally!


Chapter 79 . 3 — It’s Okay to be Stupid

“Yanyi, time to eat . Come . ” Qin Jiran had finished cooking . While he brought the dishes out, he called Yanyi too .  


Su Yanyi looked at the remaining two dishes on the table before she helped bring it over too . Qin Jiran immediately accepted it . He arranged the table, saying, “Quickly sit . I can do it . ”


Right now, Su Yanyi was extremely obedient . She sat down in her seat, waiting for Qin Jiran to fill her bowls with rice and soup .  


When 001 saw this, it could only helplessly cheer for itself . Cultivating the Queen into a virtuous wife, goes without saying, was a very difficult task . It had a heavy burden . It would continue to work hard! 


However, you need to work hard too, Mr . Master . You did the work of a virtuous wife . You should’ve allowed the virtuous wife to do it! Do you really want the virtuous wife to become a lazy one?!


The happy dinner ended and the two were watching TV on the second floor’s living room . Qin Jiran prepared fresh juice . While Su Yanyi drank, she swept a glance at Qin Jiran .  This man looks calm . It seems like he won’t be giving her the presents today .  


Qin Jiran was oblivious to the glances but was thinking about the presents in his heart .  When should he give Yanyi the gifts? Although Christmas was tomorrow and that was when he should give the gifts, he felt that his presents weren’t that valuable . If he took it out tomorrow, would Yanyi dislike it? But if he took it out now, it would seem a bit rushed . Moreover, as he thought of the number of things he’d bought, he felt a little embarrassed gifting .  


The two watched TV for a bit before returning to their study to deal with work . These two were quite busy . Although they knew they should allow others to help them with work, there was still a lot of work to do . Especially for Qin Jiran . Right now, he was diversifying into various fields . In addition, the Su Family was slowly assigning him a lot of work . Therefore, he was really busy .  


Seeing Qin Jiran heading to the study room, Su Yanyi looked dazed .  


Tomorrow is Christmas and this man didn’t have the intention of going on a date with her? Or did he think it was enough to just prepare gifts? Or did he not have time tomorrow? But he should be able to make some time during the evening .  


Indeed, was it really because Qin Jiran was too busy? Of course not . A man like Qin Jiran, no matter how busy he was, he would always have time to spend with his beloved . His woman was more important than his career .  


Then, why isn’t there a date? The reason was simple . It was because Qin Jiran had been thinking only about the gifts and forgotten all about going on a date . Besides, in Zhan Minghui’s reminder, he had never mentioned going on a date, ok!


She mulled over a bit . Originally, Su Yanyi was supposed to go to her study to handle some files, but she never went in . She sat in the living room, staring at Qin Jiran’s study .  Should she take the initiative since this man didn’t remember to set up a date? Although she’d said that this man would pursue her, he was a bit slow-witted . She should take the initiative too! 


Then, Su Yanyi, made a decision . She stood up and walked towards Qin Jiran’s study . She pushed the door open and walked in . Inside the room, Qin Jiran was looking at a file . Who knew when the small golden turtle had climbed onto the table, lying down and staring at Qin Jiran .  


Once Su Yanyi saw this, without another word, she picked up the small golden turtle and tossed it out . It’s one thing to take a look at her man but quite another to stare at him .  Did he think she was non-existent‽ 


Qin Jiran felt a bit weird . He clearly didn’t understand Su Yanyi’s thoughts . Of course, normal people wouldn’t understand Su Yanyi who was jealous of a turtle . He inquired, “What’s the matter?”


“Tomorrow is Christmas . ” Su Yanyi felt that she should give Qin Jiran a chance to take the initiative, so she reminded him .  


Qin Jiran was momentarily stunned before replying, “Yes, I know . ”


Then, the two fell silent . Su Yanyi scrunched her eyebrows, secretly sighing .  This man was indeed a slow-witted person! 


“Do you have something to do tomorrow?” Su Yanyi decided to give Qin Jiran another chance, the reminder more obvious this time .  


“I’m going to the studio to shoot scenes . What’s the matter? You have something to do?” Qin Jiran replied truthfully, not the least bit conscious of the hints .  


For a moment, Su Yanyi had no idea what to say . Maybe she really wanted to take a hammer and knock on this man’s head . She wanted to see what it was made up of, to the point that he was this dense and slow!


Headache! A slow-witted man! 


“When are you going to finish shooting?” Su Yanyi thought that since this slow-witted man didn’t understand how to be romantic, she would do the needful .  


“I don’t have any scenes in the afternoon . Since tomorrow is Christmas, everyone in the crew is strongly asking for a half day’s break . Director Guo and I have agreed…” Qin Jiran suddenly thought of something . His face immediately turned uneasy . He secretly stared at Yanyi, before testing, “Do you have time tomorrow afternoon? Do you want to celebrate Christmas together?”


“Humph! I don’t have time!” Su Yanyi saw that this slow-witted person had suddenly understood her point but she wasn’t that happy either . She proudly humphed and turned around, walking off .  


Qin Jiran was flabbergasted . She sounded angry . But in reality, she was just having a temper . How should he appease her?


Qin Jiran hurriedly rushed out . He wasn’t that slow anymore . He directly pulled on Su Yanyi’s hand, “Don’t be angry . Whenever you have time; I will wait for you until then . Tonight, I will cook a feast for you ok?”


He was openly trying to move and lure her in . Before, he was a stupid slow-witted man who knew nothing about romance . But now, he was smart and sneaky!


Su Yanyi looked at Qin Jiran . She slightly raised her eyebrows and then her chin, “Then wait for me tomorrow . When I have the time, I’ll come look for you . ”


Qin Jiran wanted to laugh but didn’t dare to . He was scared that she wouldn’t let him off that easily once he laughed . He knew that Su Yanyi liked her face a lot . He would definitely be taken to task for laughing at her .  


“Ok . I will go find you after I finish shooting the scenes tomorrow . Whenever you have time, just call me . ” Naturally, Qin Jiran let Su Yanyi do as she pleased . He would never put up an attitude with her . He thought that it was extremely cute to see this type of Yanyi . His heart softened and he wanted to hug her .  


Qin Jiran looked at Su Yanyi with a tint of peculiarity and patience . His hold on her hand tightened .   


“Yanyi…” Qin Jiran whispered before he pulled Su Yanyi in his arms . He gently hugged her .  


Qin Jiran didn’t do this with too much strength or speed . During this process, Su Yanyi was free to fight against or reject him . But clearly, she didn’t have the intention of doing so . On the contrary, she allowed the man to hug her and her hands fell on the man’s waist .  


The familiar smell led them to feel comfortable . It was warm and sweet .


“You’re a slow-witted person . ” 


Su Yanyi knew that she was being a bit willful . But in reality, she was unfamiliar with being willful . To be exact, he had agreed but she had had to pretend to be angry . She would never have done this before . This behavior belonged to a young woman . She would’ve felt disdain in the past . Yet, now, she had done the very thing and so naturally .  


Thinking back to her actions, a bashful Su Yanyi’s face slightly flushed .  


Qin Jiran lowered his head only to see Su Yanyi’s pinkish cheeks . His heart raced quickly and his grip around her tightened . He rubbed his head against Su Yanyi’s hair . He took in Yanyi’s smell which was what he had been forever longing for .  


“Yanyi, I’m always so stupid and causing you unhappiness . ” Of course, Qin Jiran was a little upset about how stupid he was with even setting up a date . He’d originally wanted to let Yanyi be happy and like himself more, but he was helplessly stupid . He was a bit anxious now .  What if Yanyi really disliked how stupid he was one day? What should he do?


Although the man’s voice revealed disappointment, the words spoken were the truth . Yanyi was at a complete loss . Her original motive was to make Qin Jiran anxious . How come he was disappointed now?


“I’m not unhappy . It’s okay if you’re a bit stupid . I don’t need to worry about others stealing you from me . ” Seeing the gloomy man, she began to anxiously comfort him . However, she wasn’t used to this and her words sounded funny in a sense .


Qin Jiran felt that he was indeed foolish . But thinking about it, Yanyi said that she didn’t need to worry about others stealing him .  Did that mean she cared a lot about whether someone might steal him?


Qin Jiran thought of Wang Zhilin and how that woman was obviously interested in him . However, that was not a pure type of interest . It comprised of of many intricate thoughts . It was intricate to the point that he felt disgusted . Yanyi felt the woman was disgusting too . Was it partially because she also liked him?


Thinking about this, Qin Jiran wasn’t gloomy anymore . He was even a bit happy . Su Yanyi had taken that change in feeling to her heart . She suddenly thought her comforting had an effect on him . She relaxed and felt that the man was easy to pacify . She had spoken casually yet this man became happy .  


Oh, was this a beautiful misunderstanding? Or was this in reality, a truth?
