Chapter 28 – I Won’t Take Yours Off Again
In the afternoon, as the sun was creeping towards the west, Qiu Jin loaded the rubber dinghy and fishing gear onto a small pickup truck, and set off towards the beach.
The place was sparsely populated, so it was a good opportunity to film.
Driving the small pickup truck by himself, Qiu Jin left Ji Shenxiao and the filming crew behind in the dust.
Unexpectedly, at the fork of the road right before the beach’s parking lot, Qiu Jin was stopped by a red convertible.
This was a one-way street, and there was a car parked on the side fo the road. The front half of the car plunged into the lawn, and the back half of the car jutted out onto the road.
There was a man and woman sitting in the car, dressed in skimpy clothes. The man was sitting in the driver’s seat and playing with his mobile phone. The woman was leaning on him to watch the screen of the mobile phone. Don’t know what they were watching, but the two people burst into loud laughter.
Qiu Jin honked his horn: “Bro, can you let me through?”
The man’s back was to him with his gaze still riveted on the phone screen. After a while he stretched out his left hand and waved his hand.
The meaning of his gesture was obvious: just pass by, don’t talk nonsense with this laozi*.
[*T/N: 老子 lao zi – arrogant first person pronoun]
Qiu Jin reminded him: “This is a one-way street.”
The man threw the mobile phone in front of the woman. His tone was full of impatience: “Are you nitpicking or what? This is such a broad road, and you still can’t drive pass?”
The man was an alpha. His physique was average, but his temper was huge.
Qiu Jin sounded his car horn again: “I can’t make it through, please move over a bit.”
“You can’t drive pass, but it’s my problem? If you can’t get through, then don’t. Who knows what you are doing here?” The man pushed his sunglasses over his head and looked at the pickup truck. He said disdainfully, “Can’t you see that this is a designated sightseeing area? Did you come here to catch fish or to hunt for rich, attractive guys?”
Qiu Jin: “You’re really not going to move?”
“This entire Lanhou Island belongs to laozi’s family. Where did a green onion like you come from? How can you demand that I make way for you?”
“The entire Lanhou Island is yours?” Qiu Jin almost laughed at him, “Do you think that you are Ji Shenxiao?”
The man said proudly: “My dad had a meal with Ji Shenxiao before.”
Qiu Jin was speechless: “I eat meals with Ji Shenxiao every day.”
The man glanced at him. What he saw was a pickup truck that was only used for farm work. Piled atop the pickup truck was an inflatable boat and fishing rods. The driver was a young man in a white T-shirt and sunglasses. Although he was handsome, he was still a farmer. Talking to these people was a waste of time. The man turned his head around, too lazy to waste time with such a braggart.
Shan Wen came over and said: “I’m guessing he doesn’t recognize you. How about telling him that we are filming a show?”
“It’s okay, I have a way.” Qiu Jin’s expression was very calm. As soon as he finished talking, he put the truck into reverse gear, and slapped the steering wheel with one hand. The rumble of the engine sounded like the roar of a ferocious beast.
“What… what are you doing?” The man suddenly became nervous when he saw him like this. “Laozi’s car is an imported vehicle. Can you afford it if it breaks?”
“You’re not planning on forcing through are you?” Shan Wen also saw his plan and became nervous, “Don’t be impulsive!”
“Don’t worry, I’m just teaching him a lesson.”
Qiu Jin directly steeped on the accelerator and the pickup truck rushed forward.
The two in the sports car turned their heads and saw a pickup truck that was taller than their model by half a car’s height, rushing towards them recklessly.
The truck was getting closer and closer. The man wanted to drive away to avoid him, but he was so flustered that he couldn’t start up the car. Finally, he hugged the woman next to him and screamed: “Ahhhhhhhh!!!”
Just before the pickup truck was about to touch the sports car, a harsh breaking sound screeched through the air, and the pickup truck came to a steady stop.
Trembling, the man raised his head. He, who was still arrogant and domineering before, was completely frightened into a small shrimp.
After a long while, he finally came back to his senses. He opened the car door and saw that the front of the pickup truck had almost reached the rear of his sports car, leaving a gap of barely a finger’s width in between.
Just a centimeter further forward, and his car would be propelled into the beach under the embankment.
How dare this person do such a thing to him?!
“F*ck. Are you f*cking looking for trouble on purpose?!”
Qiu Jin chuckled and said lazily: “Wasn’t it you who told me to pass?”
Today he was wearing a pair of dark brown aviator sunglasses that nearly covered up half of his face. Coupled with the firm and powerful arm resting on the truck’s windowsill, and the vaguely strong scent radiating from his body, he did not look like someone that was to be trifled with.
