"This sucker waited for me for ten thousands years," Bai Yu commented as he flipped through the script lazily. He was lying down on the dressing room sofa as he studied the script with his co-actor. "I mean I'm great but not -that- great. Even if I fucked him really good in this time travel scene I doubt it's worth ten thousands years of abstinence. If you sleep with one person each year you could have slept with ten thousands people throughout that time! Why would you pass on that?" He looked at Zhu Yilong who sat beside him, clearly hoping for a reaction to his joke. The older guy just smiled.
"Isn't it obvious? Because I love you so much that nobody else in this universe can replace you even for a fraction of the time I spent waiting for you." He then paused. "Although I'm not sure how to portray a love that lasted for ten thousands years."
Bai Yu laughed. "Long-ge, we are not trying to win film awards. This is just a cheesy fun web drama."
"But it's an interesting exercise for the mind. And heart." Zhu Yilong stretched out his hand towards Bai Yu. Following his lead, Bai Yu put his palm on Yilong's, and Yilong laced their fingers together, then put his lips on the back of Bai Yu's hand.
He closed his eyes for a moment, trying to recall all kind of love he had experienced throughout his life. Sure, he had lovers before, but it was far from the kind of eternal love that Shen Wei had for Zhao Yunlan. He loved his family, and he imagined that if he had children he would sacrifice anything for their well being, but all of those would still pale in comparison to Shen Wei's love.
Zhu Yilong never loved like that, but in the time he became Shen Wei, he had to make others believed that his love lasted for ten thousands years. And to do so, he had to believe it himself. Even if it was just for a few minutes.
"Xiao Wei," Bai Yu said softly. "Why are you looking so serious tonight?"
Shen Wei opened his eyes, and see the love of his life... no, see his entire universe smiling at him.
"I've waited a lifetime and more just to hold you like this once again."
The way he looked at him unnerved Bai Yu. He looked at him as if he was the only person in the whole world. Nobody ever looked at him like that.
Zhao Yunlan felt like cracking a joke to lighten up the mood, but found that he was unable to do so.
"And I've waited through a hundred of life cycle to meet you again." He then remembered, "wait, are we doing the drama or the novel storyli-"
He was cut short when Yilong suddenly kissed him. Bai Yu thought, what the fuck, then after a split second of consideration, began kissing back.
He absent mindedly trying to recall how Zhao Yunlan kissed Shen Wei, when his partner suddenly jerked back.
"I..." Zhu Yilong looked flustered. He looked at Bai Yu, then looked down, ashamed and couldn't believe what he had just done.
"Sorry, I think we should call it a day." Yilong was about to leave when Bai Yu grabbed his wrist.
"For a ten thousands years of pent up lust, that's a bit weak, don't you think?" Bai Yu cocked his head. "Do you want to practice some more?"
Zhu Yilong could only agree.
