Chapter 41: Meeting Face to Face (8)
On the other hand, Xing Yichen, who saw the whole process, stared at the couple coldly. It turned out that this woman had another target to pursue. Ha ha, is this what she calls affection? What a cheap woman!
Xing Yichen and Xing Wanshuang greeted each other before turning their attention to Qiao Ruohuan who was on the opposite stage.
Afterwards, the host chose several scripts that the fans prepared for the interactive theatre. There were also some very comedic versions that made the atmosphere even more lively.
Since most of the interactive theatres didn’t involve Qiao Moyu, she spent most of her time standing off to the side, quiet and indifferent. But her attitude left a good impression on the reporters. The last request was a talent show where Xing Wanshuang will perform a dance. She learned how to dance from an early age so she was able to perform a soul-stirring sword dance.
The fans below applauded loudly. Seeing their positive response, Xing Wanshuang lifted her sword and smiled brightly, completely different from her earlier restrained smile. At this time, a reporter rushed to Qiao Moyu’s side and said “It seems that you haven’t performed. There was a recording of your action scenes online, and I wonder, could you perhaps show us a live demonstration?”
Qiao Moyu thought about it for a moment and replied, “Alright, but there’s nothing new about an old performance, so I’ll try something different this time.”
“What’s different?” the reporter asked excitedly.
Qiao Moyu: “The dress I’m wearing today isn’t very suitable for my previous performance, so instead, I’ll demonstrate board breaking with my bare hands. Sorry to trouble you, but can you help me find some boards?” she asked.
The reporter tilted his head, wondering if he had misheard her. But the girl on stage looked back at him so seriously; she obviously wasn’t joking about it.
As a result, the staff immediately went to find wooden boards. Meanwhile, the number of fans below the stage have increased to three times the size of their initial crowd.
Qiao Moyu had no idea that her kiss scene with Ye Peicheng from the earlier interactive theatre was recorded by fans and uploaded on Weibo, causing the fandom online to go mad. Soon, almost all the fans who were close by ended up rushing here at their fastest speed.
On the opposite stage, Qiao Ruohuan, appeared graceful and generous in her plain white dress. She displayed her unique style as the Qiao family’s favored Miss. However, at this time, she noticed that the number fans underneath her stage seemed to be dwindling. After the audience saw the video on their mobile phones, many left quickly and headed towards the other studio.
Beneath Qiao Ruohuan’s stage, Xing Yicheng also noticed the change and frowned. He went to speak to a staff member and whispered a few words. Not long after, the staff member returned and reported to him: “Mr. Xing, I just heard that Qiao Moyu from the other stage wants to perform a bare-handed board breaking, so the fans wanted to go and see it!”
That woman, splitting boards with her bare hands? Did she lose her mind for the sake of getting attention? Xing Yichen’s chest heaved as his anger flared. He wanted to see what kind of tricks she was playing!
By the time Xing Yichen arrived at studio for Sheng Shi, the staff members had already prepared the boards, each about one centimeter thick. They brought a piece to Qiao Moyu and asked, “Is this okay?”
Qiao Moyu glanced at it and said, “It’s a little thin. Let’s stack three of these together!”
Under the curious gaze of the crowd, Qiao Moyu placed the boards at the very edge of the table, with her left hand holding the end of the board in place while the rest of the board was suspended in air.
When the host saw that she was about to begin, he couldn’t help but interrupt her and ask, “Aren’t you going to wear gloves? Will it hurt? Otherwise, wouldn’t you…”
“I have no other talent other than strengthening my muscles,” Qiao Moyu said. She raised her bare right hand, and then–
When they heard the loud crack, everyone was shocked to find that the three boards were split in an instant!
The crowd was silent for several seconds.
Qiao Moyu’s hands felt a slight tingling, perhaps due to her lack of exercise. She raised her hand in front of everyone, her eyes shining with laughter: “My hand is alright!”
