Chapter 4 – Five Million Dollars

"Little white rabbit" was the nickname that Chou Qian had given Bai Lang the first time they had met.

In this way he had called Bai Lang for ten years. Bai Lang knew there was no chance of him making Chou Qian change it so he didn't bother to waste any energy on it.

Actually listening to it now, there was some sense of nostalgia.

Bai Lang stood up and nodded at Chou Qian. "Yes. Thank you Mr Chou for finding the time to see me."

Actually the Chou Qian of ten years later didn't change much. Especially his face which wouldn't lose to many young stars. And his wild charisma which when Chou Qian was young, made him seem older than his age, would also when he was older make it difficult to tell his age.

A cigarette dangled casually from Chou Qian's mouth and he ambled over carelessly to another couch and threw himself onto it. "Sit, say whatever it is you want to say."

Bai Lang sat properly. He didn't beat around the bush. "I want to borrow money from Mr Chou."

"Oh?" Chou Qian raised his eyebrow. He didn't disguise his surprise. "How much?"

"Five million." Bai Lang said calmly. "In cash."

"Five million in cash…." Chou Qian smoked his cigar. Very slowly he blew a puff at Bai Lang. "That's a lot of money ah. Do you mind letting me know the reason?"

"Of course. My brother Bai Li owes five million to an underground money lender. There is no choice but to repay it." Bai Lang lowered his eyes and considered whether or not he should pretend to be the previous him: naive with unrealistic stubbornness and perseverance. But after thinking about it for a few moments he thought, what was the point?

"If it's not managed well, then if the news is leaked, then I'm afraid that it will affect my endorsement deals." After finishing speaking, Bai Lang couldn't resist the urge to turn his head and cough twice because of the second hand smoke.

Chou Qian's eyes flashed with obvious calculation. He seemed to be questioning of Bai Lang and his suddenly different behaviour.

"But you don't look nervous ah, so it seems like you don't really care if it's repaid or not?"

Chou Qian spoke lightly like a feather, but in reality he really immediately grasped a crucial point.

Because if Bai Lang didn't help borrow to repay the money, then the misfortune Bai Li would bring to Bai Lang was the damages from those endorsement deals. However if Bai Lang helped him, then the person who would take on the burden of those debts would be Bai Lang himself. No matter if he borrowed or didn't borrow, in actuality there was no difference to Bai Lang. The only real difference was whether or not his parents and his brother could live peacefully.

"You're right." Bai Lang could not help but smile bitterly. "Whether or not it's repaid makes no difference to me. In the end it will be me that owes money. So I want to ask Mr Chou for help. After lending this time, to make sure that there isn't a second time. This will be better for the company too."

"Am I so effective? How come I didn't know." Chou Qian snuffed out his cigar and raised his chin. "Why don't you explain it to me?"

"… to be your kept lover. The five million is the price. Bai Li will never dare to touch someone who is Mr Chou's person."

Bai Lang's voice was steady, however he still couldn't help but lower his gaze.

Chou Qian froze for a few seconds, and then suddenly laughed uproariously.

"Keep you!? Hahaha- I didn't hear wrong right!? Hahahaha!!"

Bai Long couldn't control a flush from rising onto his face. He still remembered the first time he rejected Chou Qian. The way he had spoken had been extremely iron-willed, even though at that time he had been frightened to death. So right now in the face of Chou Qian's loud laughter, Bai Lang could only mock himself in his heart.

"Two years ago what did you say? I still remember, hahahah-!! You said something like your morals would never allow you to cross that line, and didn't you want to report me to the police? Hahahaha-!!"

Chou Qian laughed loudly for some time. After finishing he even used his hand to wipe away his tears. "Now you want me to keep you, hahaha…. You're good, I forgive you for waking me up in the middle of the night. Hearing all of this makes it worth it."

Bai Lang's mouth jerked into a mocking smile. Back then when he was called "a little white rabbit", it really wasn't for no reason.

"Then, what does Mr Chou think?"

Chou Qian's mirth faded and became a light and vague smile.

"Shouldn't you ask me first whether or not when I answered the phone last night, if there was anyone sleeping beside me?"

After he spoke Bai Lang paused for a few moments. Afterwards there was a faint sense of disappointment.

Because from Chou Qian's words, Bai Lang immediately understood that the other man had taken him as yet another young star who would abandon his morals for the sake of money. After all he had come here to sell himself voluntarily, and something like that obviously wasn't worth much. This meant that between the him in his previous life and Chou Qian there was a faint sense of respect and a blurred type of camaraderie. However now that he had asked Chou Qian this question, this type of camaraderie no longer existed.

However Bai Lang did not regret his actions.

The reason he asked Chou Qian this question was also to thank him for what he had done for him at the very end. He wanted to thank him for holding up that umbrella.

In his rebirth, Bai Lang didn't really have anything to give Chou Qian. Only this.

To use his body as a recompense, thinking about it it was somewhat dog blooded. {T/N: Dog blooded = melodramatic. Common Chinese phrase so I left it as is.} However thinking about his body, he didn't know how many years he had left in this lifetime. If Chou Qian wanted it, then he could just take it. And if he didn't then at least Bai Lang had done his best to repay him in his heart.

As for Bai Li, if Chou Qian rejected his offer, then he supposed that the company would not act as before and keep lending money to him. {T/N: As in if CQ loses interest in him then no need to keep helping him in order to play with his reactions.} The him that had no house and no assets, and only two short months of fame, if he didn't have any backers then there was no way of borrowing five million from the bank. If this was how it turned out, then really there was no way of him getting money to help Bai Li and so this path was completely cut off for him. It can also be considered a way of finishing things cleanly.

So Bai Lang didn't force anything. He expressed that he understood. "If there was, then it's my mistake."

After he finished then he got up to leave. "I still want to thank Mr Chou for your time today." Bai Lang nodded at Chou Qian. "I won't disturb you any longer."

Chou Qian's eyes sharpened. He stared fixedly at Bai Lang like a poisonous snake. "What about the money? You don't want it?"

Bai Lang paused. "To find someone with Mr Chou's qualities will be difficult, however at least I can find–" He didn't finish speaking before Chou Qian suddenly reached and snatched him around the wrist and jerked him back forcefully that Bai Lang's entire person fell into him.

Bai Lang was shocked. However after the last few days of topsy-turvy events, he didn't put up much resistance to the fact that his entire person was now pressing down on Chou Qian's body. Bai Lang was almost 180cm tall, however he was still shorter than Chou Qian by half a head and that wasn't even mentioning their difference in muscle tone. Bai Lang obediently let Chou Qian raise his chin up and was gazed at calculatingly.

Chou Qian narrowed his eyes. "You've changed a lot."

"When a rabbit is in a dire situation, it can also bite people." Bai Lang calmly replied under Chou Qian's piercing gaze.

Chou Qian stared at Bai Lang for several seconds. He seemed to think of something but in the next moment he suddenly used force and holding Bai Lang's chin, forcefully kissed him. It was a un-polite kiss, extremely searing.

The tyrannical tongue seemed to want to lay claim to its kingdom, thrusting deep into Bai Lang's mouth.

Bai Lang couldn't help but freeze slightly. Even though in his previous life he had gone out with Kang Jian, however the two of them rarely had any violent interactions. And the strong scent of tobacco in Chou Qian's mouth made Bai Lang feel slightly dizzy. However under Chou Qian's strong offense, Bai Lang was able to recover and remind himself to relax and allow Chou Qian's actions.

So once Chou Qian finally released Bai Lang, he dangerously narrowed his eyes. "It seems you're more experienced than before?"

Bai Lang slightly pressed his numb lips together. "…. don't force yourself." It was impossible for him to return to the naive youth of his previous life.

Chou Qian's expression became suddenly dark. However it quickly faded because he once again grasped Bai Lang's chin and kissed him again. However before this Chou Qian gave him his answer.

"Then serve me well. Five million dollars, settled."


The next day, a silver limited edition SUV came to a stop outside the apartment that was Bai Lang's old home in T City.

This was an old apartment with six floors. Eight years ago the two elderly Bai parents who had been at that time farmers in an even more remote area had caught onto the development wind. Their farm had been taken back by the government and they had received a sum of money. At that time they had listened to the newly graduated from university Bai Li and came to T City to purchase two apartments in this old building, one upstairs and one downstairs.

The two old people considered it carefully. Now that they didn't have their farm they could only rely on their sons. If they purchased like this then they would live downstairs and their oldest son Bai Li would live upstairs after getting married. That way they could take care of each other and help raise their grandchildren. As for their youngest son Bai Lang well it was up to him to make his own way in the world. The two old people didn't have the resources to help him do anything.

So in fact Bai Lang had only lived here for a few years before going to university in A City. So he wasn't extremely familiar with this place.


Bai Lang wore large sunglasses and descended from the car.

Today he was wearing a light gray long-sleeved shirt and pant suits. It was very different from his on-screen white T-shirt and blue jeans fashionable look, it was much more mature. The things that Bai Lang had experienced in his previous life were not fake. Right now his thoughts and actions were very different to the way people in his generation behaved.

Bai Lang held the car door, bent over and said to his driver of today, "Thank you Mr Chou. I can go up by myself." T City and A City were separated by around five hours drive, approximately it was at the limit of somewhere one could drive to and from in one day.

Chou Qian who was sitting in the driver seat and smoking as usual, turned his head. "En? Do you need me to make an appearance?"

Bai Lang lightly smiled. "To some people, they might not recognize a person. But they will definitely recognize money."

Chou Qian looked at Bai Lang a few times. Since yesterday's "exchange" was settled, the Bai Lang in front of his eyes became more and more difficult to understand.

"Okay. I'll wait here then." Chou Qian took out something from his pocket and threw it Bai Lang. "But since I'm your gold master, and the purchase has been settled, then we can't forget about our responsibilities."

Bai Lang reached out his hand and received it. When it was in his hand he saw that it was a silver watch. In the front it was filled with silver colored loose diamonds. Only on the four positions of the time indicators it was changed to four blue gemstones. It was lucky that the metal shape was very sleek and shapely, otherwise it could only be described using the terms "blingy" and "ostentatious".

Bai Lang didn't say anything. He only put matter-of-factly placed the watch onto his left arm and lightly covered it with his sleeve. "Thank you Mr Chou."

"Are you still calling me Mr Chou?" Chou Qian raised his chin.

"Brother Chou," Bai Lang changed it.

Chou Qian made an "en" noise, and then smiled in a playful manner. "After you complete your business, then following that it's time for our personal business."

Bai Lang nodded his head slightly. He didn't reply to these words and only closed the door and went up the stairs.


The Bai family had two apartments. They had purchased the fifth floor and the sixth floor.

It was a small apartment that didn't have an elevator. So the higher levels were cheaper than the lower levels.

Bai Lang slowly walked up the stairs that were both familiar and unfamiliar. The memories that he didn't want to remember floated through his head.

"You, you unfilial son!! How dare you come back!?"

"Do you want your brother and us to be cursed to death!? Do you want to force us to die!?"

"Do you know how the neighbours talk about us!? They say we have a perverted son!! Thinking all day about men's bottoms!!"

"What are you doing! Do you know what this would do to your brother!! You almost ruined his business don't you know!!"

"If you want to be disgusting then go be disgusting your yourself!! Don't drag us down with you!! Get out!!"

"What did you say!? You still have something to say! Get out! I'll beat you to death!! Beat you to death!!"

"What kind of curse have I been placed under ah!! Why did I give birth to a sick thing like you–!! Dear God ah–"

After that there had been beating and kicking.

At that time his mother had torn her voice hoarse crying and screaming, those cries still echoed in his ears.

His father had only given him the sight of his fleeing back.

As for his brother Bai Li, he only said with a bitter face, that he never thought his own younger brother was like this…

These events from his previous life made Bai Lang stand at the door of his house for a long time before he finally pressed the doorbell.

After university, there was no longer his room inside his house, and so of course he also didn't have a key.

The door was opened very quickly. It was Bai Li whose eyes were bloodshot.

"Little brother!! Did you get the money!?"


A few minutes later, Bai Lang sat inside the living room. He was assaulted on all sides from questions from Father Bai, Mother Bai and Bai Li.

"Where's the money? Ah Lang, you borrowed it didn't you?" Mother Bai directly asked impatiently.

"Your brother is waiting for the money to save his life ah!! You don't live here so you don't know what we've been through these few days!! Everytime we pick up the phone there's strange laughter from the other end, and everytime we go out there's someone in black following ah!! They're not even scared of the police!! They just keep following!! How can we live like this ah!!"

"That's right ah, little brother. You, you definitely got the money right?!" Bai Li grabbed Bai Lang's hand in a crazed manner. His grip was so strong he left a red mark. "I only have three days left!! Three days! If I can't come up with the money, then both me, mum and dad will be over!!"

Father Bai and Mother Bai also were beyond logic. They said in a panicked manner, "Yes! Don't you spend all day every day filming TV and movies?! You should have earned a lot of money right!! How come you're not talking!! It's such a small thing, why can't you help your brother!?"

"Mom, five million is not a small sum…." Bai Lang finally raised his head and interrupted Mother Bai's speech.

"Be honest Ah Lang, are you blaming me for been biased! Ah?! Is it because you blame us for giving the house to your brother is that what it is!? However he's your brother ah!! There's no need to separate things between brothers!! We've raised you for so long, eating, using, what did we not give you!? And you pick this timing to start to nitpick, aren't you being extremely heartless!?" {T/N: By the way I'm not exaggerating the number of !! and !?, the author really put this much lol.}

Originally Bai Lang had wanted to reach into his pocket to take out the cheque, but after hearing Mother Bai speak, a thought that he had never had in his previous life suddenly struck him.

"Right now these two houses, if you sell them, isn't it worth around five million?"

Chapter 5 – Diamond Watch

"What did you say!?!" Mother Bai's face changed. Even her voice changed. "This is all we have!!"

"If we sell the house, then where will we and you brother live!? You, you, you you actually dare tell us to sell the house!? I just knew your motives weren't good!! Now that your famous you want to throw away your old father and your mother!! Ah!? You're so cruel!! I, I, how did I give birth to a miscreant like you!!"

Father Bai saw that Mother Bai's curses were becoming more and more fierce and hurried to stop her. "Stop talking so much. Ah Lang didn't mean it like that."

Father Bai turned to Bai Lang and said in a persuading manner, "Ah Lang. We can't sell the house ah. These years, the price of houses has been rising like crazy. If we sell, we can't find another one this good that's also upstairs and downstairs, two levels. How can we live som comfortably ah? You need to lend us the money…."

"Then why don't you mortgage the house?" Bai Lang asked calmly. "You can repay the five million slowly. It would be better than taking it all out in one go. If in the beginning, older brother finds repaying the mortgage difficult, then I should be able to help him."

After speaking like this, there appeared a hesitant and unsure expression on Father Bai's face.

"But what if we can't repay it!?" Mother Bai saw his attitude and immediately rushed to interrupt. "What if you abandon us and don't help us!? How can you promise that we'll be able to keep up the repayments! If you dare touch the house then I'll fight you to the death!!" Mother Bai slapped the table and stared viciously at Father Bai to warn him.

Father Bai who had a weak personality didn't dare to cross Mother Bai. he could only turn his head to beg Bai Lang for help. When he met Bai Lang's calm and measured gaze, he finally couldn't open his mouth. Because if they continued in this manner, they would be forcing Bai Lang to lend them the money but at the same time was unwilling to sell the house, not even one of the two. The reality of the matter was becoming more and more clear.

Bai Li saw the situation wasn't right and he also interrupted, "Little brother. I know you're unhappy regarding the situation with the house, but think about it, haven't father and mother taken good care of you ah? From the moment you started working to right now, have they asked you for money? Right now to nitpick about this kind of thing, isn't that being very cold hearted?"

"Also, right now the fact that I'm in this kind of urgent situation, isn't it also for you? Think about it, if news about this kind of thing leaks out, then wouldn't your image that you built up with such hard work be all wasted? Money is just a momentary thing, but only with reputation can you earn more money. You should be more clear about this kind of thing than me right ah?!" By the end Bai Li's words carried with it the hint of a threat.

Bai Lang looked at Bai Li. His gaze was cold. Towards Bai Li, Bai Lang didn't need to be polite. He reached into his pocket and took out his bank card and with a "pa!" sound slapped it onto the low table. "You can go and check how much money is inside. I only just finished repaying the 400,000 I borrowed for you before. You should be more clear about this kind of thing than me. All the money for taking care of mother and father has pretty much all be spent on you."

Bai Li's face was extremely ugly. "…. So what you're saying is, you're really going to watch me die is that it?"

"If you don't have money then you can borrow it ah!! If the bank won't lend you, then can't the company do it?" Mother Bai continued to cry and yell on the top of her lungs. "Aiyo!! Old man, look at this heartless child you've raised!! Doesn't even want to help his own mother, father and brother!! Back then, why did we even raise a second one!! If we aborted then we could have saved ourselves so much trouble ah!!"

This type of words, even in his previous life Bai Lang had never heard it.

The Bai Lang of the previous life had never come home to talk about this matter, and had only obediently and hurriedly sent the money over, he had never thought about disobeying his parents.

Right now the reality which was becoming more and more apparent made Bai Lang laugh mockingly at himself.

Finally he reached into his pocket and took out the cheque and placed it onto the table.

"If you can't bear to sell the house, then sell your son ba."

When Bai Li saw the cheque, he immediately rushed forward and snatched it. He laughed gleefully. "This, this, is this big boss Chou's cheque!? It's the type that can be redeemed for cash! It's exactly five million!! Ah Lang, if you had it why didn't you say earlier…."

Father Bai still had some conscience. He hurried to ask, "Sell our son? What do you mean? Where does that money come from?"

Bai Lang stood up. Because he didn't want to waste any more time.

"The money from selling my body. Five million dollars to sleep with a man."

"Sleep with a man!?" Mother Bai screamed loudly. "You, you're a prostitute?"

Bai Lang jerked the corner of his mouth. "I can also not be one. Return the cheque to me."

"You, are you joking!?" Bai Li clutched the cheque and retreated one step. Father Bai and Mother Bai had clearly been shocked stupid by such a statement. For the time being they didn't know how to react.

"There's still three days. You can consider the circumstances." Bai Lang looked at the three people in front of him. The usually soft-hearted Bai Lang in the end decided to give them one last chance. "There's two paths. Mortgage the house. In the beginning I can help with the repayments. Otherwise, take the five million. If you want my help, this is the only way I can help."

Bai Lang walked towards the door. He opened the door and added a sentence, "But once it's sold it's gone. After all, once I'm not a virgin I'm not worth anything anymore isn't that right?"

Father Bai's face was a white as a sheet. Finally he took a tiny step forward. "Ah Lang, you…."

Bai Lang turned his head and looked at Father Bai.

But Father Bai hesitated for a few moments and in the end what he said was, "You, do you really mind about the house?" {T/N: As in he still thinks all this is because Bai Lang is being deliberately difficult because he is unhappy that they bought an apartment for Bai Li and not for him.}

Bai Lang felt something within his heart break again. He shook his head and lost his smile. There was a [pa-cha] sound and the Bai family door closed behind him.

Bai Lang controlled himself and didn't look back, and walked towards that silver SUV.

As soon as he got into the car, the scent of smoke wafted over to him.

Within the smog, Chou Qian turned his head and his gaze swept over him. "You're still a virgin?"

Bai Lang stilled. He thought about how Chou Qian knew what he had said earlier.

At this time Chou Qian casually took out a earpiece from behind his right ear and carelessly tossed it aside.

It looked like Chou Qian had been listening the whole time. Bai Lang paused for a while, then his gaze turned to the watch on his left wrist.

Bai Lang adjusted the watch and smiled bitterly. "Is this the most expensive type of dog leash?"

Chou Qian shrugged his shoulders. "Whether or not you want to wear it is up to you."

He had placed a bug on his body but then had deliberately told him about it. Bai Lang really didn't know what Chou Qian was thinking.

But anyway it didn't matter. As for what happened just now in the Bai family, it didn't matter to Bai Lang if Chou Qian knew or not.

Suddenly Chou Qian said, "What if after three days the cheque hasn't been cashed?"

Bai Lang smiled. "Then I'll sleep with you once. For free."

"Oh?" Chou Qian's face was full of interest. "Then haven't I gotten a big bargain?"

Bai Lang's smile faded. He looked outside the window. "That's why the probability is very low. It's like winning the jackpot."

Chou Qian looked at Bai Lang's profile and didn't say anything.

He started up the car and forcefully pressed on the accelerator. The silver SUV made a loud noise and sped away.


Not two hours later, when Chou Qian's car had not even returned to A City from T City, the bank called according to Chou Qian's instructions to notify him that the five million had already been cashed.

At that time, Bai Lang looked out of the window and thought about the significance of his rebirth.


The next morning Bai Lang was woken up by the sound of digital music, on a large and deep blue bed.

He was wrapped in a suede quilt, the touch of it felt as delicate on his skin as the most expensive brocade, it was very cool and relaxing. Bai Lang couldn't help lifting up a pillow to cover his ears, like a turtle who wanted to continue sleeping in his shell.

All the way until there was the sound of a [pa-la], and the sound of something being smashed against the ground. The noisy alarm music finally stopped. However the sudden silence actually made Bai Lang finally wake up from the state of heavy sleep.

He opened his eyes and saw an expanse of tanned skin floating in front of his gaze. The naked back bore a perfect and beautifully even muscle tone, and right now it was rising and falling slowly. Underneath the wide shoulders was a strong waist, and what was below that was wrapped in the same blanket as Bai Lang. This person's head also practically rested on the same pillow.

Bai Lang dumbly closed his eyes. In a few seconds he recalled what had happened the previous night. Then he slowly got up and slowly made his way towards the bedroom's large and spacious ensuite bathroom.

Yesterday Chou Qian and driven back towards A City and then without any further discussion, the two of them had come here.

This was a luxuriously renovated apartment that was at the same time as cold as a furniture display home. Chou Qian entered the door, threw the key to one side, pushed Bai Lang against the door and began kissing him. This kiss lasted until they ended up in the bedroom's large bed and then the two people, very effectively, did what they had come here to do.

In this manner, they didn't even have dinner. Bai Lang directly fell unconscious and slept until the next day.

The alarm just now was something which Bai Lang, with his last shred of rationality, had placed into his phone last night.

After having a shower and ignoring the pain from his waist, Bai Lang picked up the discarded clothes on the floor and dressed himself. He tried the mobile phone which had a few moments ago being smashed onto the ground. Luckily it still switched on with no problem.

The time from now to when he had to be on set for the make-up for the advertisement was one hour. Bai Lang guessed that by the time it would take for him to get to his own apartment from here, followed by reaching the set… but he had no choice but to go home first. He couldn't wear these kind of ripped and missing buttons clothes to the set.

There was no choice but to be late. Bai Lang looked at the Chou Qian who still had his head buried in the pillow and thought that it was not necessary to say any goodbye. He was just intending to turn and leave when his foot accidentally kicked something. When he looked down he saw it was the diamond watch which had also been thrown aside last night.

Bai Lang paused for a moment. However thinking about right now how he should behave obediently to show his sincerity, so he bent over and picked up the watch and placed it on his wrist.

Once he clipped on the watch, Chou Qian's head appeared above the sheets, his voice deep from sleep. "You want to go?"

Bai Lang adjusted his clothes. He nodded his head beside the door. "In the morning I still have some scheduled matters. I need to go home first so I'll be leaving first."

"What kind of big matter is it? Cancel it." Chou Qian narrowed his eyes and raised his head. There was an angry and fierce aura about him. "Making it seem as though I just had a one night stand. Come here!" {T/N: More literally, CQ is complaining that because they slept together and then BL immediately wants to leave, it seems like he's the one that got played haha.}

Bai Lang paused and then came closer to the bed. Once he got near he was grabbed by Chou Qian.

After some movements, Bai Lang was once again pressed underneath Chou Qian's body.

Chou Qian's eyes were not completely open yet. He pressed against Bai Lang and sniffed him. "Did you just wash? You smell pretty good."

Bai Lang opened his eyes and stared at the ceiling. But because Chou Qian seemed as though he was about to fall asleep again, he said quietly, "UNI's clothing endorsement. If I skip work without reason, then it's 200,000 per day. If I ruin their image then its 1 million. I just signed last week."

Chou Qian said lazily. "What are you scared of? If it falls through then I'll just find you a bigger endorsement. No big deal."

Bai Lang said helplessly but seriously, "… Then how should I explain to Xiao Yang?"

"Xiao Yang?"

"My assistant."

Chou Qian laughed lightly into Bai Lang's chest. He didn't seem sleepy any longer. "How do you want to explain it?"

Bai Lang was silent for a few seconds. He wanted to try and figure out the hidden meaning behind Chou Qian's words.

Right now Chou Qian's attitude seemed to be that he wanted to let everyone know about their ambiguous relationship.

But why? This wasn't a good thing for the company, even if Chou Qian wasn't worried about this kind of small money.

Or was it because his behaviour had changed too much from before and Chou Qian found it suspicious, so he was trying to test him?

….Was him wearing the watch not enough?

Thinking about Chou Qian's "poisonous snake" nickname from his previous life, Bai Lang thought that even if he tried to guess it he wouldn't be able to. He only raised his head and lightly stroked Chou Qian's hair as though to comfort him. "How about I ask someone to send some food over. And some clothes. That way we won't be so pressed for time."

Chou Qian stilled. Then he said with a dissatisfied expression, "You still intend on going?"

"Yes." Bai Lang patted Chou Qian's head. "The five million has all been spent. So right now I need money."

Chou Qian gave him a patronizing look and then rolled off him and hugged his pillow instead.

"I want the hot soy milk from the end of Er Lang street, egg pancake and fried breadstick with a double serving of onions."

Bai Lang laughed. He got up and made a phone call. But it wasn't to Xiao Yang but to the professional errand runner whose number he had saved in his phone. This kind of errand person who could help you buy things and bring it to your house was a booming business in A City in the last few years. This person was someone that Xiao Yang helped him find.

"If it's possible, I would like to change Xiao Yang. He is not good at keeping his mouth shut." Bai Lang finished his phone call and told Chou Qian.

"Oh. Fine. Who do you want?"

"Hong Hong ba." Bai Lang spoke without thinking.

In his previous life although it was many years later that the large headed Er Hong had been sent to him, but in their discussions with each other, Bai Lang knew that Hong Hong had started working at Total Entertainment as an assistant from a very early time, even before Bai Lang.

"Hong Hong?" Chou Qian's voice changed.

Bai Lang felt a bit strange. He could only add as an explanation, "I've heard people talk about him."

"Oh?" Chou Qian got up from the bed and laughed in a significant way. "Your appetite is not small. You want to steal my assistant ah."

Bai Lang stilled. Other than realizing that things were not ideal, his heart was filled with questions.
