Chapter 105 - Finale – Wedding
Here was the thing.
Once «Devotion» was screened, it set off a huge sensation in the Spring Festival.
Even though the theme was controversial, it couldn’t affect Ren Jing’s great popularity—which was enough to keep the audience curious even when he acted in a non-mainstream movie.
The spectators went to the cinema curiously and were immediately charmed by the movie.
It was initially a sad theme. With the actors’ great acting skills, the ending made the girls cry until their eyes turned red, and the boys who accompanied them also bawled their eyes out so much that their hands and feet turned numb. The cinema became very lively as a result.
Each of them pa.s.sed word-of-mouth about the movie. Even though it didn’t give much publicity to the movie, it still caused a great sensation.
After the excitement pa.s.sed, countless media tried to interview them.
Ye Chen didn’t feel like answering them, so he rejected all the interviews.
Later, Ren Jing told him, “Let’s go together on this one.”
Ye Chen took a look, and… Oh, it was a media owned by a company in which Ren Jing was a controlling shareholder, they were quite influential, he might as well go—he wasn’t thinking much at that time.
The instant Ye Chen agreed, their a.s.sistants began to make the arrangements.
The interview was broadcasted live to a web portal, resulting in a heavy traffic to the site that day. The technicians had to work overtime to keep the site from going down with all their might, it was indescribably painful for them.
Ye Chen didn’t take it too seriously at first since he thought he only needed to strictly follow the ma.n.u.script. He simply smiled all the way.
In fact, the interview went steadily with the young interviewers guiding them. They were asked about interesting incidents when they were shooting the movie.
Ye Chen’s answers were remarkable and pretty amusing. The atmosphere was harmonious and delightful, it was great.
The situation went on until the host cracked a joke. “Your acting skills are so great that you have performed in such outstanding manner in the movie. Because of that, some of our internet friends are curious about your relationship in private. Some even think that you two like each other.”
The host laughed after saying so. It was right for him to ask that question, since they could refute the rumor that way. They were acting in a movie with a same-gender theme, so it was okay for the host to ask them that question so they could prove their s.e.xual orientations.
In the end, Movie King Ren smiled faintly, then threw a ‘huge torpedo’. “I truly like Ye Chen.”
The instant he finished his words, the whole TV studio stopped still for a second. Even Ye Chen opened his eyes wide in surprise.
Not only the studio, even the live viewers all turned frozen. Afterwards, hundreds of millions of people all over the country could only curse ‘what the f.u.c.k’ relentlessly inside their heart.
The host could sense the great crisis. He hurriedly replied, “That’s for sure, otherwise you wouldn’t have been able to work together. You seem to be very good friends in private.”
His words made sense. ‘Like’, wasn’t it…? Liking friends is also counted as like!
Being ‘guided’ by the host, the viewers began to think the same way too.
However, Movie King Ren had decided not to let the melon-eating spectators get away today, he just had to stuff them up until full they almost burst.
He simply said, “We’re not good friends.”
The host, “!!!”
Ye Chen’s heart thumped wildly. He looked at Ren Jing with his cheeks slightly flushed.
Ren Jing also looked at him. As the two looked at each other, pink bubbles were spreading all over the whole world through the camera.
Ren Jing’s voice was so tender and sentimental that it made countless girls and guys who heard him feel half of their body turning weak and numb.
It was truly a bombsh.e.l.l!
The host’s forehead was covered in cold sweat all over. He faked a laugh for a long time before saying, “Haha, Movie King Ren is so humorous for cracking such a joke…”
The host couldn’t keep the conversation going anymore. Who the h.e.l.l could believe that these two…these two…
Ye Chen felt really sorry for the host since he seemed to have been ‘hounded to death’. Still, he said where he stood. “It’s not a joke, we’re truly dating.”
All the viewers throughout the country had collectively exploded into fireworks. Fortunately, it wasn’t night time, otherwise the night sky would have turned to day because of the fireworks!
Li Fu had also come to the interview. He had completely turned into a big fool that he couldn’t utter even a word!
Since they had thrown such a huge bombsh.e.l.l, it was only natural that Ren Jing and Ye Chen had left earlier using a special pa.s.sage in order to avoid the crowd of reporters cornering and blocking them.
After getting in the car, Ren Jing apologized to Ye Chen, “I’m sorry.”
Ye Chen blinked. “For what?”
Ren Jing replied, “I’ve told everyone about us without asking for your permission first.”
Ye Chen chuckled. “Dating isn’t something for us to hide.”
Ren Jing looked at him, then he said, “From now on, you’re mine alone.”
Ye Chen’s eyes were in a curve as he smiled delightfully and sweetly.
Ren Jing gave Ye Chen a kiss, then said again, “If you leave me, my fans are going to crowd your door.”
Ye Chen gazed at him, then said, “I think your fans are already crowding my house now.”
Ren Jing, “Don’t worry, my fans will certainly be able to accept my lover.”
Ye Chen, “That might not be true. They’re probably thinking of chopping me up.”
Ren Jing had turned unusually childish when he said, “Then they’re not my fans.”
Ye Chen was so overwhelmed with joy that he couldn’t stop smiling.
Ren Jing didn’t hold back, either. He took Ye Chen into his arms, then imprinted another kiss on him carefully.
Ye Chen laughed heartily as he said, “Don’t…don’t do that, it tickles so much…”
His voice was so sweet and soft that Ren Jing had almost ‘executed’ him in the car.
Ren Jing coming out of the closet in public had caused a great sensation, but he had been prepared since a long time ago. The studio had started the public opinion guidance before someone tried to make the situation worse.
Ren Jing’s Weibo was blown up and Ye Chen’s Weibo couldn’t be accessed. The whole internet was discussing it.

Let alone the other thing, the box office sales of «Devotion» had tripled, so much that the large cinemas increased the number of the movie’s showings consecutively. Even those who had watched it once would watch it again for the second and third time.
Ye Chen poked him. “You’re gonna look more virtuous in front of your elders soon.” Recently, he always raised his voice whenever he talked, showing that he was just so happy.
Before leaving, Ye Chen also told Xiao Liu to take the kitten along.
This was what Death System urged him to do. It said, “Take Qu Qu along, too. Make a tiny suit for it, it must be so handsome it could blow up the sky! It represents me! Put it in the families’ seat, you hear me!?”
Ye Chen, “…”
What else could Ye Chen do but to spoil it?
The scene of the wedding ceremony’s MC carrying the kitten from the start to finish was really joyful to look at.
The wedding ceremony was romantic and marvelous. Mother Ye had done three days of preparations, yet she still ended up crying so much on the wedding day that all of her make-up smeared. It wasn’t because of the feeling of marrying her son off, it was just…just…too moving.
Thinking about Ye Chen and Ren Jing’s fate, those who had learned the truth could only feel happy and moved because of them.
Director Li was also invited to the wedding. He only sent a big, big red packet for them.
Why? Because he felt guilty! Up until now, this block-headed and straight director still thought that the two became a pair because of his movie. He thought that the lead actors had gone too deep into their characters that they had turned bent from straight (he was thinking too much).
After the wedding ceremony had finished, it was a seaside party.
The beautiful scenery of the heaven on earth added up with the locals dancing enthusiastically made everyone’s cheery mood and happiness reach its peak. Ren Jing and Ye Chen who hugged each other amidst the dazzling fireworks had received heartfelt blessings from everyone.
Loving mutually, staying together, and accompanying each other for a lifetime.
Nothing could surpa.s.s their love, and they had gotten everything they ever wished for in their lives.
All story (text) completed.
Later, Director Li was also invited to Gu Xi and Shen Jiaze’s wedding, and the same went for Yu Xingzhe and SUN’s wedding.
After spending a huge amount of money thrice, Director Li began to doubt that his movie had a curse.
Why do the leading actors and even the supporting actors have all turned bent!?
The author has something to say:
Note: The setting of same-gender marriage being legalized in China in this novel is just fictional.
All of the stories have been completed! Thank you everyone for the support! I’m deeply grateful!
I have a lot to say, but ended up not knowing what I should say after they reached my lips. In short… I truly loved all of you! Smooches!
Since this story has concluded, I’ll write a new one soon.
We’re not saying goodbye yet!
I’ll promote my new novel for a bit: “Don’t Be Scared, I’m Just Dissing You”. It’s an e-sports novel. The pair is an Adonis shou making a comeback x a psychotic demon filled with jealousy who turned into a puppy and pampered his ‘wife’ gong. The gong is Ye Chen’s (younger) cousin (from his uncle’s side). The novel would be filled with a lot of ‘tension’. Those who haven’t played the game would totally be able to understand, I simply wanted to write about a bunch of hot-blooded youngsters who are braving the wind and the waves, not scared of the ups and downs in life, and chasing their dreams relentlessly! Those who are interested might want to click/tap on that special column below the author’s name: Bookmark, hahaha! Ah, it’d be better if you could also bookmark the author, hehehe.
There is a poll in Weibo (my name is Jinjiang Long Qi there, not Long Ran, hahaha) of a self-published printed book for “If You Don’t Fall in Love, You’ll Die”. Those who want to grab a copy could cast your vote there! Bowing my thanks!
T/N: Wrote a kinda afterword here. Be warned though, it’s very lengthy and consisted of mostly babbling and incoherent thoughts put in words (probably) LOL. Thank you so much for everything all this while! Hope you enjoyed the journey until here.
