Thousands of Heartbeats

Chapter 19

After hearing Chen Lunan's answer, Yan Qiuzhi seemed to breathe a sigh of relief, and her whole body and mind relaxed.

Although she didn't know why.

She paused and silently exchanged a glance with Chen Lunan.

Chen Lunan looked at her and whispered, "Let's go home."


Mother Chen tried to persuade them to stay, but Chen Lunan had no intention of spending the night.

Before leaving, Mother Chen stuffed Yan Qiuzhi with many things. Yan Qiuzhi initially wanted to refuse, but on second thought, she accepted everything.

After returning home, Chen Lunan took the initiative to carry the things Yan Qiuzhi received from Mother Chen and brought them into the house.

For the first time, Yan Qiuzhi felt that Chen Lunan seemed to be quite considerate.

She followed him into the house, and by the time she entered, there was no one on the first floor.

Yan Qiuzhi glanced at the things on the table and, without rushing to find the person, sat cross-legged on the carpet and began to unpack the boxes.

Mother Chen had given Yan Qiuzhi a set of jewelry, a jewel set in emerald green that emitted a dazzling light when opened.

She stared at the set of jewelry in front of her, trying hard to recall from her memory.

Why did this set of jewelry seem so familiar?

Yan Qiuzhi stared intently, thinking for a while but couldn't figure out where she had seen it before.

She pushed the jewelry aside and continued unpacking the others.

In addition to the jewelry, Mother Chen also gave them some health supplements, probably fearing that they were too busy with work to remember to take care of their bodies.

But after looking at the words on the health supplements, Yan Qiuzhi fell silent.

After taking a shower, Chen Lunan went downstairs and saw Yan Qiuzhi sitting at the table in a daze, supporting her chin.

Taking off the armor she almost always wore, she looked softer and more casual.

He paused for two seconds and was about to go to the kitchen when Yan Qiuzhi called out, "Chen Lunan."

Chen Lunan responded with an En and went to the kitchen to pour water, "What's up?"

Yan Qiuzhi glanced at him and said, "Your mother's gift to you."

Saying that, she pushed the things in her hand toward him.

If it were usual, Chen Lunan might not even spare a glance at the things on the table. However, Yan Qiuzhi's expression was too strange. Her ears turned red, and her cheeks also had a blush, as if she were embarrassed.

He paused, lowered his head to take a look.

Deer antler.

Mother Chen's gift to Chen Lunan was—deer antler, a classic kidney supplement.

In addition to deer antler, Chen Lunan looked at what was in the other boxes: American ginseng, snow lotus, ginseng, and more. It was a well-prepared set.

For a while, the room fell silent.

Unable to bear the atmosphere, Yan Qiuzhi mumbled softly, "It seems like your mother has this impression of you. She has already prepared these for you to nourish your body. Do you think she feels that you—"

She stopped abruptly halfway through her sentence.

What was she saying?!

She lowered her head and didn't dare to look at Chen Lunan's expression at the moment.

She pursed her lips, guiltily shrinking her head, "Um... you should put these things away and let the housekeeper take good care of you."

Chen Lunan remained silent, just watching her.

"About what you were saying earlier."


"Why don't you finish what you were saying earlier?"

Yan Qiuzhi hesitated, glanced aimlessly elsewhere, "What did I say just now? I can't remember."

Saying that, she turned and walked toward the stairs.

Before she could leave, her wrist was held by the man.

Putting down the cup in his other hand, Chen Lunan, with a rare hook of his mouth, said meaningfully, "Is that so?"

"Then let me help you remember properly."

Yan Qiuzhi: "......."

She wished she could go back to five minutes ago and take back everything she had said.

Why did she tease Chen Lunan?

Was she crazy?

Chen Lunan's physical condition, she knew better than anyone else.

Late at night, the misty air in the bathroom was filled with an ambiguous atmosphere.

Yan Qiuzhi felt like she might die here. This time, Chen Lunan was more excessive than a few days ago.

This was clearly retaliation!

In order to prove that his body was fine, he kept tormenting her.

Yan Qiuzhi curled her toes together, feeling a bit unable to withstand his invasions.

But strangely, she kind of enjoyed it.

She actually liked it when Chen Lunan was intimate with her, even more so when he was indulging himself in her.

Only at these times, she would feel a sense of being truly needed.

After several rounds in the bathroom, Yan Qiuzhi couldn't take it anymore.

She, on a rare occasion, acted coquettish with Chen Lunan, holding his neck and pleading, "Enough... can't... take..."

Chen Lunan lowered his head and dropped a kiss on her ear, his voice hoarse, "Who can't take it?"

Yan Qiuzhi: "......."

"I..." her voice carried a hint of crying, making it irresistible, "I can't take it."

At this moment, life was more important; dignity and all that could be thrown aside.

However, it was apparent that this statement didn't please Chen Lunan.

He was a bit gentler in his movements, but still tossed Yan Qiuzhi around several times.

After finally returning from the bathroom to the bed, Yan Qiuzhi trembled under the blanket.

Finally regaining her life, she promised herself never to tease Chen Lunan again.

Dog man really held grudges.

Especially in such matters.

Before going to sleep, Yan Qiuzhi thought that when she woke up the next morning, she would stash away all the supplements Mother Chen gave them in the utility room, making sure she wouldn't see them again.

The next morning, Chen Lunan was on the sofa answering a call from Wang Kang when he saw Yan Qiuzhi rushing down from upstairs, holding the pile of supplements from last night and throwing them into a room that was rarely opened on the first floor.

After throwing them in, Yan Qiuzhi directly locked the door and finally breathed a sigh of relief.

After completing this series of actions, she didn't go to see Chen Lunan. She tossed her hair and went back to her room to sleep.

"Brother Lunan."

Wang Kang shouted from the other side, "Brother Lunan, did you hear what I just said?"

Chen Lunan rubbed his eyes and softly responded, "En."

He said, "Continue."

Wang Kang said, "There's a shooting invitation from the magazine. Take a look if you want to go. There are also several award ceremony events. Although you had to work last year, the organizers still want to invite you as a guest of honor."

Chen Lunan's popularity was evident. The organizers were savvy enough to know that inviting him would generate heat. So, they were making efforts to persuade Chen Lunan to agree.

After thinking for a while, Chen Lunan asked, "What are the events?"

Wang Kang replied, "Both TV dramas and movies, as well as a charity gala."

Chen Lunan knocked on the table in thought. Before he could speak, Wang Kang quickly added, "By the way, Miss Yan will probably participate as well."

He looked at the information in his hand and whispered, "Miss Yan had two works nominated last year."

After saying this, Wang Kang paused for a few seconds and inquired, "Brother Lunan, do you want me to make arrangements with the organizers on your behalf?"

In fact, award ceremonies and such events sometimes involve the exercise of special privileges.

For example, when two people had similar achievements and were close in performance, if one had more backstage support, the organizers would often consider favoring the one with stronger backing.

"No need."

Chen Lunan said, "No need to make arrangements. Just let me know the schedule."

"Got it."

Wang Kang understood and continued, "By the way, Brother Lunan, there's also an invitation for a variety show. It's from Senior Xu Song, the variety show he's hosting is currently in production."

Xu Song was a senior in the industry respected by many. In recent years, he had been hosting a slow-paced lifestyle variety show that gained popularity.

Each episode featured different celebrities, sometimes two or three, and occasionally a group of people.

Last year, when they first started shooting the variety show, Xu Song had called Chen Lunan and offered him to feature in his variety show. Chen Lunan, who was busy with his overseas affairs at the time, had declined his offer.

Just shortly after Chen Lunan returned, the call came again.

Chen Lunan asked, "When?"

"In a week."

Chen Lunan nodded, "If there are no other arrangements, I'll take it."


Just as they finished discussing work, Chen Lunan raised his head and noticed that Yan Qiuzhi was glaring at him with a puffed-up expression. She then hurriedly ran downstairs.

"Chen Lunan, are you even human?"

Yan Qiuzhi, gripping her sleepwear, was about to be infuriated by him.

"I just teased you a bit last night, why do you have to leave so many marks on me?"

She had a magazine shoot today.


Chen Lunan looked at her frustrated expression, and for some reason, his mood suddenly relaxed.

Putting his phone aside, he calmly observed her.

"What marks?" he asked innocently.

Yan Qiuzhi's brain froze for a few seconds. Facing Chen Lunan's deep eyes, scenes from the intense moments last night flooded her mind.

She opened her mouth, and her face turned red in an instant.

"You know exactly what," she said.

Chen Lunan paused, looking into her eyes, "Where?"

Yan Qiuzhi was about to show him but suddenly remembered. If she showed them to Chen Lunan, wouldn't he take advantage of her again?

"Scheming man."

Chen Lunan: "........"

Yan Qiuzhi glared at him, "Come over."

Chen Lunan didn't move.

Yan Qiuzhi angrily said, "I'm going to shoot a magazine, come over and press down the marks on my back."

She was a bit reckless, having already let Chen Lunan take advantage of her so much. A bit more wouldn't make a difference.

She first had to make sure to go to the magazine shoot and hide the marks on her body so that they wouldn't be noticed.

Chen Lunan had no objection.

He got up and returned to the room with her.

Yan Qiuzhi had fair skin, any marks on it would be particularly noticeable.

When Chen Lunan followed her back to the room, Yan Qiuzhi had just exposed her back.

There were obvious marks on it.

Chen Lunan's eyes froze, fixed on her porcelain-like skin, which appeared even more radiant under the light.

When she didn't hear anything, Yan Qiuzhi urged, "Chen Lunan, hurry up, I'm going to be late."

Chen Lunan paused for a moment, then walked straight over.

As soon as he approached, Yan Qiuzhi didn't bother being polite. She handed him the concealer and directed, "Apply this, make it even."

Chen Lunan swallowed hard and replied softly, "En."

At first, Yan Qiuzhi didn't think there was anything inappropriate, but when Chen Lunan's rough fingertips unintentionally touched her delicate skin, causing her skin to tremble lightly, she realized it.

It seemed... this kind of thing wasn't suitable for Chen Lunan to do.

They hadn't reached that level of intimacy yet.

Yan Qiuzhi's eyelashes fluttered, and her body tensed up.

The next moment, when Chen Lunan's fingers inadvertently brushed against the skin on her neck, she immediately jumped up from the chair.

The two looked at each other. Yan Qiuzhi stuttered, "...Chen Lunan, be careful, don't keep touching me, I'm sensitive."
