He took out a pack of cigarettes and handed one to Qin Man.

Qin Man shook his head.
“I don’t smoke.”

“… Why did you come out then?”

Ji Ran glanced at a tree next to him and felt his heart move.
“Come here.”

Qin Man stepped forward.

“Bend over.”

Qin Man looked up and immediately understood when he saw the thick branch.
“You want to go up?”

“En.” Ji Ran raised an eyebrow.
“Hold your hand out, let me step on it.”

Qin Man didn’t make a sound but he also did not bend down.

“You aren’t willing?”

Before he could finish, Qin Man had leaned forward.
Ji Ran thought he had agreed and was intending to raise a foot, only to find an arm wrapping around his calves.

“What are you doing?” He was startled.

Qin Man easily lifted him up all the way to the branch.
“It wouldn’t be steady.
Hold on tight and go up slowly.”

Ji Ran sat on the tree branch.

He didn’t know what was up with this tree.
It wasn’t tall, yet its branches were thick and easily supported a full-grown man.
When the sea breeze blew, it felt extremely comfortable.

Ji Ran watched the sea for a while before he suddenly spoke up.
“Do you still remember the sea behind our school, with several large trees?”

He paused for a moment.
“Oh, I forgot that was an area out of bounds to others.
How could a nerd like you know about it.”

Qin Man raised an eyebrow.

He naturally knew about it.
That was his little school bully’s favourite place to go whenever he played truant.
Every time he went, he would stay for an entire afternoon.

If it weren’t for him, the little school bully would have been marked as absent over 800 times.

The little bully was unaware, swinging his legs carelessly.
“Go back first, I’ll sit here for a bit.”

Ji Ran suddenly heard a click, like the sound of a camera’s shutter.

Turning back, he saw the person behind holding up his phone.

He froze.
“You shot me?”

“I didn’t.” Qin Man set the photo as his screensaver with a calm face.
“I shot the sea.”

Ji Ran didn’t doubt him.
He didn’t wait long before his phone rang.
It was Yue Wen Wen calling to let him know the food was here.

Just before they returned to the private booth, Ji Ran recalled he had not accomplished the purpose of this trip.

He touched the pack of cigarettes and decided to forget about it.

On the way back, the door of the neighbouring booth abruptly opened.

A man carrying a camera came out first.

Ji Ran was already annoyed by this stuff and simply frowned when he saw another man walking out.

The man was handsome.
Ji Ran knew him.

This male star, in Yue Wen Wen’s words, was a “Little Fresh Meat”, and also one of Cheng Peng’s lovers.

“Ah, ge, I really can’t do this…must I really catch a chicken?”

Several staff members came out, looking like they were shooting a reality show.

“Of course, you lost the game, you must accept your punishment!” It was a heavy male voice.
“Catch a fat one, that’s our lunch! Suiran too, you lost, so quickly follow along.”

Ji Ran, “…”

He didn’t know if the show would mosaic the passers-by who accidentally entered the frame but he grabbed Qin Man’s hand without thinking, turned and walked towards the private booth while ignoring He Suiran’s burning gaze.

“Go on, what’s the matter?” Seeing He Suiran stop, the male star followed his gaze and only saw only two backs.

“Nothing.” He Suiran turned around and smiled, “Let’s go.”

Ji Ran returned to the private booth, thought for a while and said, “There are some celebrities filming variety shows next door.
Be careful not to be shot.”

“Really?” Yue Wen Wen asked in surprise, “What variety show? Is it popular? Is it too late for me to go back and put on makeup?”

“Don’t be so coquettish.” Ji Ran smiled.

“Tell us, who is there?” Yue Wen Wen asked.

“He Suiran.” Ji Ran glanced at Cheng Peng.
“And someone we know.”

Qin Man raised an eyebrow.
“You also know the other person?”

“I don’t remember his name.” With Chen An around, this matter wasn’t suitable to speak about, so Ji Ran glossed over it.

However, Yue Wen Wen couldn’t contain his curiosity.
“Who is it? Do we know anyone in the entertainment circle? I’ll go have a look…”

Before he could finish, there was a knock.

Cheng Peng replied, “Come in.”

The door opened and the cameraman entered.

Followed by that, He Suiran and the male star entered.

When the male star saw Cheng Peng, his expression suddenly changed and his cheeks flushed.

“Excuse the interruption.” He Suiran smiled naturally and explained, “We lost a game and now need to find someone to compare our strength… I wonder if I can trouble you?”

Just as Ji Ran was about to refuse, Cheng Peng suddenly spoke.

He looked at the male star and said, “Okay.”

The male star’s eyes lit up and he hurriedly nodded.
He quickly went to Cheng Peng’s side.
“Then I will have to trouble you!”

He turned his head, “Excuse me, can you let me through?”

Chen An blinked in confusion and it took him a long time to recover.

Ji Ran was preparing to watch the show when he saw He Suiran walk up to him.
“Then, can we compete with each other?”

When He Suiran spoke, he looked at the camera and said to the ‘audience’, “Victory means we will have the eight treasure soup.
For the sake of the team, I can only choose someone who I think I will be able to win against.”

Ji Ran didn’t want to originally, but he laughed when he heard this.
“Come on then.”

He Suiran smiled internally and immediately sat on the chair with his elbows propped up on the table, the muscles on his arms flexing.

The camera quickly gave a close-up.

Ji Ran was about to stretch out his hand, but someone else took He Suiran’s palm first.

The photographer’s close-up shot was originally intended to highlight the star’s good figure.

Unexpectedly, the arm that had just entered the frame was more eye-catching than He Suiran’s.
Not only were his muscles beautiful, each of his fingers could be regarded as a work of art.

The photographer could hardly resist and subconsciously moved the lens over..

The man with exquisite facial features wore a careless smile.

“I’ll do it.” Qin Man smiled and said purposefully, “I really don’t want to let you have any soup.”
