What an unreasonable man; they only met once on a plane. Even if his habits remained the same as in his previous life, these trivial quirks shouldn’t have aroused Ivanov’s interest enough to investigate him.
Chen Zhang An’s death should have been good news to Ivanov. It is the removal of a powerful competitor after all.
‘I thought Chinese people are all very friendly and warm. Hey - hey, don’t go, long live the friendship between Russia and China!’ Following close behind Chen An, Ivanov started spouted strings of utter nonsense.
What an idiot.
Chen An couldn’t help but frown. How could a madman like Ivanov be his competitor?
‘How do you say in it Mandarin? We have a shared destiny! Hey, An, how about a drink?’ Ivanov didn’t seem ready to part with Chen An yet.
With Ivanov’s looks and wealth, he really didn’t need to follow behind a man whose looks are nothing exceptional.
Chen An felt a sudden bewilderment; Why is Ivanov following him? Is it just because he share a few similarities to ‘Chen Zhang An’?
But even more perplexing, why is he in the cruise bar drinking with Ivanov?
‘I haven’t introduced myself; I’m Ivanov.’
For a man with such striking looks, he would attract attention no matter where he goes. Ivanov reserved the entire bar the moment he stepped inside, his burly guards standing guard at the door entrance like stone guardians, scaring away all the other tourists who tried to enter the bar.
Without a word, Chen An picked up a glass and took a sip.
His indifferent demeanor gave Ivanov an odd feeling that he was trying to kick an iron plate. Jeering disdain flashed through his eyes as he lightly circled the rim of his wine glass with a slender finger. ‘As is the usual custom of making friends, aren’t you going to tell me your name?’
‘But you know that already, don’t you?’ Chen An replied languidly. He isn’t dumb enough to jump into hole Ivanov dug for him.
He couldn’t quite accustom himself to the strong alcohol. It seems like his sensitivity to alcohol has increased immensely since his rebirth, because in the past, not even a thousand shots could bring him down. In fact, he had once depended on this alcoholic capacity that is as vast as the sea to seal a deal with Ivanov’s father on the bar table.
Whether you are a man or woman, whether you are a child or a senior citizen, all Russians like to drink. Vodka in particular, is an integral part of their lives.
The glass of martini in his hands felt like a glass of poison; Chen An had a restless urge to finish it in a mouthful.
Could it be that after switching a physical body, his alcoholic tolerance had turned to shit?
‘Don’t be a girl, An. Drink it all.’ Ivanov smiled as he raised his emptied glass in his hand, his words successfully provoking Chen An.
Though Chen An appear to be in his thirties, but his soul is that of a man over forty years old. He didn’t enjoy being looked down by someone so much younger than him one single bit.
Especially when he was a champion drinker in the past.
Chen An then did an action that he regretted to the bottom of his soul. He raised the glass of martini and downed it completely.
Translator’s notes: *Although An is Chen An’s given name (with Chen being his family name), but typically with Chinese names that has only 2 characters, people will address them with their full name as oppose to only their given name. To do otherwise, would be informal, almost like a pet name. So, for a stranger who you technically only met once to call you ‘An’, it is a little creepy.

I posted a sourced quote from a gamer’s comment on a polygon article about how he has personally witnessed gamer friends of his becoming white supremacists and big surprise tons of anti-sj and gamers in the comments on my post are accusing me or polygon of “making up” attacks on gamers
lol these are the words of a gamer himself and his personal experiences in the gaming community - literally no reporter from polygon nor I said anything
i’m not surprised hearing the gunshot. i mean, we’ve heard it ever since bulletproof to skool luv affair teaser and then again in jimin’s teaser lie. although, i was very curious as to why jimin had gotten “shot” in his Wings teaser, but never really thought about it because i figured it was a part of the song. however, when the song released and there were no gunshots, i was like, “okaaaaaaayyy… wtf?” but thought nothing of it.
and here we go, Not Today having two gunshots in the mv and all the boys going down except for jungkook, who had a vision like That’s So Raven. and i’m just… not fcking with theories anymore. lmao
I feel you! I nearly got sick when I saw what they posted wtf ED....I would be even more annoyed if I didn't know that she's not in the cast list next week (thank you @ God)! I really hope the 2 best friends scenes are limited (none pls lol..I'm so petty) from now on cause I won't be able to cope especially with Aaron in prison! I'm so envious of ppl who can get behind the friendship cause it would make my life so much easier but unfortunately I'm extremely petty and bitter
