Chapter 371 - Getting Famous
The evening was crowned by their dazzling performance. With only a Rao Shi Man’s famous song, Qin Feng and Liu Xiao Jia successfully stirred the atmosphere and took the evening to another level.
Everyone knew this song. Now that Qin Feng and Liu Xiao Jia made this song of their own, the audience thought it was splendidly done and it was just as amazing as Rao Shi Man, the original singer of the song!
“What a poser! Playing the high-and-mighty innocent before everyone in the school every day. In fact, you’re nothing but a f*cking whore who makes use of your beauty to seduce men into doing your bidding. I’m pretty sure you’re well skilled in the bedroom to get such a fine man and you must’ve served him well!” said Liang Cai Qing. She was so consumed by her rage that her eyes became bloodshot.
She thought Xu Xiao Bai and her performance was spectacular enough. She didn’t expect Liu Xiao Jia to be more dazzling than she was! This Liu Xiao Jia is the embodiment of the earliest ancestor of a pretentious deceiver! sighed Liang Cai Qing in her heart.
Like Liang Cai Qing, Xu Xiao Bai fumed with anger too. He gnashed his teeth in rage the moment he saw Qin Feng. How could he not remember who Qin Feng was? He still remembered it was Qin Feng who tricked and ridiculed him like a clown during Liu Xiao Jia’s birthday party.
“Xiao Bai, are we losing our 1st place?” Liang Cai Qing began to worry after seeing Qin Feng and Liu Xiao Jia’s performance.
“Hmph! Pigs will fly before they can snatch the championship from me!” Xu Xiao Bai looked at Qin Feng with a frosty expression. Then, he said wretchedly, “I’m going to find my second uncle. I must be the champion of the night!”
Liang Cai Qing was relieved to see Xu Xiao Bai set off. Xu Xiao Bai’s second uncle was the judges’ representative of the night, so Xu Xiao Bai just needed to inform his second uncle if he wanted to be the champion.
Qin Feng and Liu Xiao Jia’s performance ended.
The audience continued to sway the glow sticks in a synchronized pattern, unable to withdraw themselves from the beautiful singing.
A couple of young ladies swarmed beside Chen Mei Han and shrieked, “Mei Han! Is that handsome man the young uncle who attended Xiao Jia’s birthday party? His name is Qin Feng, right? Am I right? Am I right?”
Chen Mei Han replied excitedly, “Yes! Yes! You’re right! He’s Xiao Jia’s young uncle… Good people will always be rewarded handsomely! I know that Xiao Jia is a good person so it’s natural for her to have a rich, handsome, and promising young man like her young uncle! Xiao Jia’s life will be smooth sailing!”
As she was speaking, she suddenly remembered something and exclaimed, “Oh sh*t! I’m was so into the song that I forgot to record it! Xiao Jia will be very angry with me!”
“Don’t worry about that, Mei Han! I got your back. Since it was such a great performance, I recorded it. It’s super-HD!” a sister of hers said as she handed her phone to Chen Mei Han.
The group of young ladies played the video. They still praised Qin Feng and Liu Xiao Jia to high heaven even though this was their second time viewing the performance.
Suddenly, Chen Mei Han rolled her eyes as she grinned wickedly, “Xiao Jia, please don’t forget this sister if you really marry your Big Brother Feng!”
Chen Mei Han’s fingers danced nimbly on the phone’s screen as she uploaded the video of Qin Feng and Liu Xiao Jia’s performance onto several popular social media platforms. Chen Mei Han thought since Liu Xiao Jia couldn’t stir herself up to go after her love, she should give her a push and some motivation.
Provincial Capital, the Dongfang Family’s ancient mansion.
Two drop-dead gorgeous beauties tousled on a large bed in their silk nightgowns.
Those long legs were stunning. The two young ladies rolled on the bed back and forth without any regard for their disheveled clothes since there were no men around them.
“I’m certain your employees’ noses will bleed if they ever see your current appearance, Big Sister Qing Xue!” Rao Shi Man attempted a verbal attack as she was pinned under Dongfang Qing Xue, unable to move.
Dongfang Qing Xue was unaffected by Rao Shi Man’s menacing words. She tore open Rao Shi Man’s clothes and chirped while staring at her towering breasts, “I preside over up to a thousand workers. How can I compare to Little Sister Shi Man’s ten thousand fans? What do you say I snap a photo of Little Sister Shi Man and upload it on my Weibo? The impact will be so great that it’ll cause an earthquake across the entire provincial capital!”
Rao Shi Man’s face flushed in shame. She threw the towel aside and said, “Fine, fine. Big Sister Qing Xue, I surrender!
“Speaking of which, what I said just now was the truth. I can’t do anything about it if you don’t believe me.”
Dongfang Qing Xue got up first. After she helped Rao Shi Man tidy her clothes, she looked puzzled and asked, “Was Young Master Qin really how you mentioned earlier? He taught in a remote mountainous area, donated to the poor anonymously, is extremely knowledgeable, and is well versed in the traditional four arts: lyre- playing, Go, calligraphy, and painting?”
Rao Shi Man had reported the result of her mission to Dongfang Qing Xue and told her about the true styles and characteristics of Young Master Qin. However, Dongfang Qing Xue thought Rao Shi Man deliberately said so to tease her, so they fought.
“Big Sister Qing Xue, I’m telling you the truth and I never lied to you!” Rao Shi Man said firmly.
Dongfang Qing Xue was flabbergasted. She’d always thought Young Master Qin was a hedonistic young master, ignorant and incompetent. She never expected that the truth was completely opposite from the rumors!
“I’ll still never marry him no matter what!” Dongfang Qing Xue said resolutely after she fell silent for a moment. “I’ve never meet him, so how can I marry a person who I’ve never meet before just because of a promise made by Grandpa and the elders?”
Rao Shi Man realized Dongfang Qing Xue was getting angry so she hastily comforted her. “Don’t worry, Big Sister Qing Xue. Young Master Qin disagrees with this marriage engagement as well and he shares the same thoughts as you. Both of you never meet one another and, to him, a forced marriage isn’t a perfect marriage. It’s merely a marriage devoid of any responsibility from both parties. Hence, he’s fine if Big Sister Qing Xue finds her own love interest.”
Dongfang Qing Xue’s face flooded with myriad of expressions after she heard Rao Shi Man speak.
Previously, she was troubled by this marriage because she thought Young Master Qin was a hedonistic young master. However, after she learned that Young Master Qin was actually a matured and self-motivated young man, and most importantly, he even rejected the marriage engagement, a sense of loss suddenly welled up in her heart.
Woman is a complex living organism. They themselves don’t even understand what they actually want most of the time.
“Big Sister Qing Xue, let’s not talk about this. Let me show you some nice photos I took while in Acropolis City.” Rao Shi Man was afraid that Dongfang Qing Xue would be more troubled if they continued on this topic so she shifted to a lighter topic.
She pulled out her cell phone, preparing to show Dongfang Qing Xue the mesmerizing sight of the Lotus Lake when a Weibo notification popped up.
“Live at Acropolis City’s First Junior High, Rao Shi Man’s famous song ‘Because of You!’ Enjoy!”
This Weibo had already been forwarded more than 3,000 times in merely ten minutes! Under normal circumstances, Rao Shi Man would pay no heed to this kind of Weibo, but this time she hastily tapped on the notification and played the video.
This was for two reasons: “Because of You” was her song and she had too many memories left in Acropolis City.
A hubbub of laughter and yelling rang out after she pressed play on the video. Soon, the camera switched over to a young man and a young lady on the stage.
The young man was handsome and straight; he was sitting in front of a piano. Although the young lady was kind of petite, one could see clearly that she was yet another beauty.
“What is this?” Dongfang Qing Xue looked over out of curiosity.
Rao Shi Man gaped, her mouth hanging wide open, unable to utter a syllable as if shock had struck her dumb.
Deng! Deng! Deng!
Qin Feng’s piano playing seemed to waft from another dimension, pierced through her cell phone, and struck the two ladies’ hearts hard.
Although this was the second time Rao Shi Man heard Qin Feng’s piano playing, she was captured by it the moment she played the video. Even though Dongfang Qing Xue had no idea who Qin Feng was, she was attracted by the wonderfulness of this piano piece. At the same time, she knew that this song was Little Sister Shi Man’s famous song.
The magnificent performance ended.
Rao Shi Man and Dongfang Qing Xue regained their senses at the same time.
“Shi Man, what is your opinion on this? I think both of them performed pretty well.”
Looking into Dongfang Qing Xue’s beautiful starry eyes, Rao Shi Man temporarily lost her ability express her feelings. She only found her voice after a good while. “I know this young man. He is the personal bodyguard of Young Master Qin and he was my host during my stay in Acropolis City.”
“A man? You allow a man to be your host?! Could it be both of you…” Dongfang Qing Xue was shocked by Rao Shi Man.
She knew Rao Shi Man too well. How could there be any chance that she would accept a male host?
“Stop it right there! It’s not what you think!” Rao Shi Man’s face flushed red like a tomato. She said, “I’ve become friends with him because I was amazed by his piano skill!
“We even performed a duet during my stay in Qin Manor!”
Originally, Rao Shi Man wanted to tell Dongfang Qing Xue that she and Qin Feng were just normal friends. However, she held back the words after she struggled for some time. This was because when she was about to depart from Acropolis City International Airport, she received Qin Feng’s confession loud and clear, and at that instant, her heart melted.
Dongfang Qing Xue trusted her and went off to do her work when she finished talking with Rao Shi Man. Once Dongfang Qing Xue retreated from her room, Rao Shi Man nestled herself on the large bed and played the video again.
This time, however, she focused on Liu Xiao Jia.
“What a beauty! She’ll be a stunning beauty after she has grown up… I wonder how close they are for Qin Feng to prepare a ceremonious party for her!”
Rao Shi Man tossed and turned restlessly on the bed as a subtle and indescribably bad feeling arose within her.
She pondered for a while, picked up her phone at last, and posted a Weibo.
“Is somebody laying his grubby paws on an underaged girl? Be aware that I’ll report this to the police!”
It was a simple and mischievous sentence, yet it gave rise to a lively and animated discussion in the Weibo.
“Mei Han, Mei Han! I’m seeing this, right? The Superstar Rao Shi Man has forwarded our Weibo. She even left a comment on it!”
“What did she comment?” Chen Mei Han hastily asked her sister.
“It’s weird. She said something like ‘Is somebody laying his grubby paws on an underaged girl? Be aware that I’ll report this to the police!’”
All of them pondered the true meaning of this sentence, but they were stumped.
“Aiya! Pay no attention to it. As long as the Superstar Rao Shi Man forwarded our Weibo, and her Weibo has at least ten of thousand of fans, we’re going to be… Eh! No, not we. It’s Xiao Jia getting famous!”
“Young Uncle too!” All of them screamed and yelled in excitement.
Focused on their discussion, Qin Feng and Liu Xiao Jia stayed in the fitting room, unaware of what was happening outside.
“Big Brother Feng! Did I perform well tonight?” Liu Xiao Jia clung tightly to Qin Feng after they entered the fitting room.
Qin Feng just treated her as his little sister, Qin Feng settled her down on his lap.
“Yea, your performance is remarkable! In my opinion, Xiao Jia must be the champion of the night!
Qin Feng specially built this fitting room for Liu Xiao Jia. Only the two of them were left in the fitting room as the four qipao beauties went outside.
“Big Brother Feng… I-I guess we can’t get the 1st prize!” Liu Xiao Jia suddenly became sad.
She knew that Director Xu was Xu Xiao Bai’s second uncle and he was the representative for the judges. She was certain that he would make Xu Xiao Bai and Liang Cai Qing the champion of the night!
