Rong Yuheng and Wen Zhongyun happily chatted while munching on shumai, enjoying a pleasant breakfast.
On the other hand, Wen Zhecheng seemed rather absent-minded about the food.
After Rong Yuheng had his fill, he slumped in his seat, massaging his stomach to aid digestion.
Wen Zhecheng glanced at him and advised, “Don’t rub too hard; your stomach might ache.”
Rong Yuheng with a playful twist, replied, “Hey, it rhymes!”
Wen Zhecheng: “…”
After breakfast, it was time for Rong Yuheng to return to his own apartment.
He packed the clothes he had worn yesterday into a bag.
As they were about to leave, Wen Zhecheng fetched another set of proper autumn sportswear for him, saying, “It’s a bit big, but you can roll up the cuffs and sleeves.”
Once they were ready to go out, Rong Yuheng put on his shoes in the hallway while Wen Zhecheng went back to grab something.
As Rong Yuheng looked around, his gaze suddenly landed on a photo frame on the partition cabinet.
The picture showed a beautiful woman with gentle wavy hair, and a smile in her eyes, with a park lawn in the background.
“That’s his mother,” Wen Zhongyun’s voice sounded from the side.
Rong Yuheng turned his head and saw Wen Zhongyun leaning against the wall outside the hallway, as silent and elusive as ever.
Wen Zhongyun’s gaze carried a hint of nostalgia.
“She passed away when Zhecheng was young due to illness.”
Rong Yuheng spoke warmly, “She looks very amiable.”
Wen Zhongyun smiled and then turned his head to glance at the room.
Seeing that Wen Zhecheng hadn’t come out yet, he leaned closer to Rong Yuheng and whispered, “Don’t be fooled by Zhecheng’s cold appearance now.
He used to be quite clingy when he was young.”
Rong Yuheng’s mouth formed an “O,” his eyes widened in surprise.
Wen Zhongyun restrained himself from pinching his cheeks and continued to glow with pride, “He’s very close to you.
He has never brought anyone home before.
If he throws a tantrum someday, it’s just him being clingy with you.
Just indulge him a bit.”
Rong Yuheng was still immersed in his tender feelings for Wen Zhecheng.
He vigorously nodded, “I will!”
After nodding, he thought about it again.
Was Wen Zhecheng really that kind of person? Being clingy? He couldn’t quite imagine what it would be like when Wen Zhecheng acted clingy.
“What are you guys talking about?” Wen Zhecheng returned with a bag in his hand, looking suspiciously at them.
Wen Zhongyun immediately stepped back, “Sharing dance insights.”
Though Wen Zhecheng wasn’t entirely convinced, he didn’t dig deeper and just put on his shoes.
He half-hugged Rong Yuheng and left the apartment, saying to Wen Zhongyun, “Dad, I’ll see him off.”
Wen Zhongyun waved his hand, “Go ahead, go ahead! My dear khahahak~”
Rong Yuheng waved back in a similar manner, “Goodbye, uncle! Quack~”
In the car, Wen Zhecheng handed a bag to Rong Yuheng, “This is for you.”
“What is this?” Rong Yuheng didn’t expect Wen Zhecheng to go back and get something for him.
He looked inside and found several boxes of face masks and skincare products, astonishing him, “Wow!”
Rong Yuheng turned to Wen Zhecheng, “Is this how you pamper your pets? I’m not a female hamster, you know.”
Wen Zhecheng started the car and drove out of the parking lot.
The sunlight outside entered his eyes, and he looked radiant with a hint of smile, “My hamster is a premium breed.
Even males need proper care.”
Rong Yuheng was convinced, “Alright then.” He continued to rummage through the bag, “These brands seem pretty expensive, huh?”
Wen Zhecheng didn’t look back, “They’re alright.
They are good brands.
Otherwise, I wouldn’t give them to you.”
Rong Yuheng hugged the bag of precious skincare products, feeling incredibly happy.
It wasn’t just about whether they were expensive or not; it was the thoughtfulness behind Wen Zhecheng’s gesture that touched him.
“I love you, my master~”
The corners of Wen Zhecheng’s mouth curled up.
When they arrived downstairs at the apartment building, the car parked steadily.
Suddenly, a sense of reluctance welled up inside Rong Yuheng.
He was still wearing Wen Zhecheng’s clothes, which were loose and comfortable, making him feel soft and warm inside.
Rong Yuheng smiled warmly at Wen Zhecheng, “Thanks for providing food, shelter, and taking care of me like a pet!”
Upon hearing the word “pet,” Wen Zhecheng’s heart skipped a beat, and his face turned hot.
He hurriedly corrected Rong Yuheng’s teasing, “That’s not what it means.”
Rong Yuheng responded with an “Oh” and understood, “I meant taking care of a pet.
What do you like? I also want to give you gifts.”
Wen Zhecheng replied, “You don’t have to give me anything.”
Rong Yuheng was quite insistent, “No, I can’t let it go.”
Wen Zhecheng once again flipped through the script of the main pet and explained, “Look, the owner feeds and takes care of the little pet regularly.
You just need to be adorable.”
Rong Yuheng was convinced again but still unwillingly reciprocated, “Can you eat sweets? I’ll make some desserts for you next time.”
Wen Zhecheng immediately said, “Yes, I like sweets.” Like you.
Finally feeling his worth as a hamster, Rong Yuheng got off the car contentedly and headed back to his dormitory, carrying big and small bags of things.
As soon as Rong Yuheng returned, he was enthusiastically surrounded by all the members!
The first one to spot him was Huang Jianing in the living room.
Huang Jianing acted like a loudspeaker in a radio station, calling out when he saw Rong Yuheng, “Rongbao is back! Come quickly!!”
Immediately, Rong Yuheng witnessed his teammates rushing out from various corners of the apartment, like mice coming out of their holes, and in a matter of seconds, they all gathered in the living room.
“Rongbao is back? Holy crap, whose clothes are you wearing!”
“Damn, where the hell did you spend the night? What are these… dirty clothes and skincare products?”
“Rongbao, tell us quickly, it’s not what we think, right?”
Rong Yuheng: “…”
Rong Yuheng was speechless.
His innocent little heart was about to be corrupted by this group of teammates!
“I stayed at a friend’s place.
We watched a movie till late, so I slept over at his place.”
Huang Jianing exclaimed in horror, “How did you sleep?”
Rong Yuheng replied, “He slept on the bed, and I slept on the floor.”
Everyone fell silent for two seconds and then collectively breathed a sigh of relief.
Bian Chen yawned and turned back to his room, “Then it’s all good.”
Huang Jianing patted him with pity, speaking gently, “Your friend… is quite straightforward.”
Rong Yuheng hurriedly defended Wen Zhecheng, “Actually, I slept on the bed in the first half of the night, and later I moved to the floor.”
“…” Huang Jianing’s expression became more complex.
“I’m telling you, your choice of friends might be a bit questionable.”
Rong Yuheng fell silent, realizing that he seemed to have a talent for making things sound worse than they were.
The recording of STAR—T’s album was scheduled for the next week, and after a few days of rest, the members would be busy again with the recording work.
During this period, Lu Mingxuan informed Rong Yuheng through messages that the recording for the first episode of “Treasure Hunt Contest” was about to begin, telling him to prepare well.
Rong Yuheng agreed and remembered that Xu Sun had not told him about it.
He wasn’t sure whether Xu Sun hadn’t received the notification or for some other reason.
When Shan Qi came to find Rong Yuheng, he saw him sitting upright at the head of the bed, solemnly flipping through an old almanac.
He trembled slightly when holding the music score, asking, “What are you doing, Rongbao?”
Rong Yuheng looked up and smiled gently, “Nothing, just picking an auspicious day.”
Sending off an old acquaintance.
Shan Qi didn’t quite understand but suppressed the feeling of discomfort in his heart.
He discussed the recording of the album with Rong Yuheng, “Can you and Tang Tang handle this part? Your voices complement each other well.
I’ve wanted to have you two perform together for a long time.”
Rong Yuheng glanced at the music score and replied, “No problem.”
Shan Qi smiled and playfully rubbed his head, “Okay, then practice well.”
He felt that someone like Rong Yuheng was well-suited to be a companion—honest and straightforward, never shy or ingratiating.
The album recording took place in the building of Fan Yu Company.
Li Jiao led the STAR—T members to the third-floor recording studio.
The floor was tiled with white porcelain, and the sound of footsteps echoed in the room.
As they walked, they met two people coming from the opposite direction.
At first, Rong Yuheng didn’t pay much attention until Zou Yi pulled him aside and into the aisle.
Confused, Rong Yuheng looked up and followed Zou Yi’s gaze to see a guy approaching them.
His first reaction was that the person seemed familiar, but he soon felt the unfriendly look from the guy.
Shan Qi wasn’t aware of any grudges between the two, so he greeted the former teammate they had trained together, “Long time no see, Yu Rao.”
Yu Rao nodded, “Hello.”
Yu Rao’s manager also exchanged greetings with Li Jiao, and they quickly passed by each other.
Rong Yuheng then searched his memory and found that this person had been eliminated during a competition, and he had blamed Rong Yuheng for his elimination.
Zou Yi whispered, “Why is he here? Could it be that he also signed with Fan Yu?”
Rong Yuheng shook his head, “I’m not sure.”
Zou Yi cautioned, “It seems like he still holds a grudge against you.
I think he’s a bit unstable, and he might do something crazy.”
Rong Yuheng sighed deeply, “Our friendship is so fragile.”
It has been almost half a year, but how come they still don’t understand me?
The recording of the album couldn’t be completed overnight.
Fan Yu gave them half a year to complete it, during which they could take on individual jobs or attend team activities.
After a week of recording, Rong Yuheng finally received a notification from Xu Sun.
“Yuheng, you’re invited as a regular on ‘Treasure Hunt Contest.’ The formal recording will start next week, so be prepared.” Xu Sun sounded excited, as he probably hadn’t brought such an easy-going artist for a long time.
“Yang Director thinks you have great variety show potential and is impressed with your talent.
Don’t disappoint his expectations!”
Thank you, Brother Sun, and thank Yang Director for the recognition.”
After hanging up the phone, Rong Yuheng noted Yang Wen’s good intentions.
Regardless of whether Yang Wen valued him due to his connections or because of genuine care, not revealing all his cards to Xu Sun was a favor.
Xu Sun was not a bad person, just a bit money-minded.
Besides, Rong Yuheng had already put replacing Xu Sun on his agenda.
There was no way he would casually expose his resources to an agent who wouldn’t know how to use them and end up ruining a good hand.
The day of the formal recording of “Treasure Hunt Contest” arrived quickly.
Rong Yuheng stayed true to his original intentions, posted on his social media, and tagged Zai An, bantering with him back and forth.
Xu Sun drove him to the recording location.
On the way, Rong Yuheng continued their friendly banter with Zai An through social media.
Xu Sun reminded him while driving, “Don’t look at your phone if you get motion sick.
We’ll arrive soon.
Check it when we get off.”
Rong Yuheng obediently put away his phone, “I was just exchanging feelings with Zai An gege.”
Xu Sun was pleased, “Hey, it’s just that if you don’t fight, you don’t know each other.”
Rong Yuheng looked at the program’s logo gradually becoming clearer ahead and leaned back in his seat, “It’s about the same.”
Xu Sun asked casually, “Where is the difference?”
Rong Yuheng didn’t answer but smiled warmly.
It should be “Do not fight without understanding.”
Aiiyoo, Really Sorry for late.
Many drawing competition and freelancing for drawing webtoon recently opened.
But I’ll try my best to update everyday.
Remember to remind me if you find mistake.
