Chapter 126: How can we attract people’s attention if nothing happens? (2)
In the few days that Chen Xiuqi was gone, Su Yaya had an extra good time. The first day was all shopping, while on the second day, she invited Duan Xiaoyu and Zhou Peiyun to her house for hot pot, the third was spent playing games at home, while she spent the fourth day getting a full-body spa at the nearby beauty salon. She lived as free and happy a life as she wanted.
But of course, during this time, she also didn’t forget to send messages to Chen Xiuqi and call him. Sometimes, when they were free at night, the two of them would have a video call for a while.
“Hubby, I went for a full-body spa today and my skin is soft like satin. It feels so good!” Su Yaya was wearing a set of light-colored silk nightgown and doing a video call with Chen Xiuqi on the bed. Happily, she told Chen Xiuqi what she did today and she thought about the spa service she had today that the store manager arranged specially for her. It really felt too good.
In the video, Chen Xiuqi’s gaze darkened. He was looking slightly downward and just happened to stop right at her chest. He couldn’t see any lower than that, but he could see the smooth and shiny skin exposed at the collar. It was white and tender like milk and just as alluring, tempting him to want nothing more than to pounce over and take a bite.
Chen Xiuqi felt his throat getting parched as his Adam’s apple bobbed up and down. His deep eyes were still locked onto her fair and smooth skin when he spoke in a hoarse voice, “I’ll be coming back tomorrow night.”
“So soon?” Through the video, Su Yaya didn’t notice the huskiness hidden beneath his voice. She was still immersed in her free and beautiful life without him in the house.
Chen Xiuqi stared at her, dissatisfied. “You think it’s too soon? Hm?”
Su Yaya could hear how unhappy he was and her heart jumped. She quickly explained, “Ah, no. You heard me wrong. I just mean you’re really amazing at your job! You were able to finish everything so quickly.”
Chen Xiuqi was pleased. A smile emerged on his lips and he emphasized again, “I’m coming back tomorrow night, so wait home for me like a good girl.”
“Okay,” Su Yaya promised him. But then, she thought about her work tomorrow and quickly said, “But I have to go to Fruit Station tomorrow to record ‘Beauty and Gourmet’.”
“It’s not like you won’t be home after the recording. Wait for me at home after you’re done,” Chen Xiuqi said to the camera.
Why do his words sound a little strange? Was anything wrong? Su Yaya was confused.
However, even when they finished the call and she fell asleep in bed, she still couldn’t figure out what went wrong.
Early the next morning, Duan Xiaoyu picked up Su Yaya so she could participate in Fruit Station’s “Beauty and Gourmet’s” recording. She was very timely, and when she arrived, the crew was still preparing the scene.
When the producer, Sun Lei, saw her, he came to greet her with a smile. “Miss Su, you’re here on-time. We still have a big before the recording starts, so you can go to the dressing room to prepare for now. When we’re ready for the recording, one of the crew members will come call you.”
Sister Hui, one of the hosts standing at the side touched the male host next to her, Brother Ou. She raised her chin slightly at her and said, “Look at Sun Lei, what’s he being so enthusiastic with a small-time celebrity like that for?”
Brother Ou glanced at her and recalled the rumors he heard in private. He said, “Didn’t you hear? She should’ve come for the shooting last episode, but I heard she was sick or something so someone called Sun Lei and arranged for Xu Qian from Shengshi Entertainment to take over for her. She’s got a big fish behind her!”
Sister Hui looked at Su Yaya again and observed her with the discerning eye of a woman. She smiled and said, “I heard she’s with President Chen from the Chen Group. She looks pretty and she has a good body. Real stunner.”
Brother Ou said, “You’ve also interviewed President Chen before. You must’ve heard how much he holds his baby tight. You better be gentle with her when you’re hosting the show later.”
Sister Hui smiled. “How are we going to attract people’s attention if nothing happens? And how are we going to get the ratings?”
The author has something to say: I checked and saw that you can transfer 200,000 on WeChat at most, so President Chen transferred over 23,333 yuan less.
Yaya feels that she’s earned a good deal with 1,000 each bowl, while President Chen felt like he was getting the better part of the deal too. Any time he bought gifts for Yaya, he would spend at least a few tens of thousands. Yaya has to drink a lot of medicine so he’ll have to buy her a lot of presents. If you punch in the numbers, he’s paying her a few hundred thousand short. 1,000 yuan a bowl? Don’t be too cheap!
