Chapter 31 – Faking Death
The high-heeled shoes collided with the concrete floor in a slow rhythm. The hollow structure of the underground garage made its string of sounds louder…
Xiao Liu curled up shivering in his place, feeling like a little mouse targeted by a large carnivore. It was certain that he would not be eaten, because his meat was not even enough to jam the beast’s teeth!
Instead, the beast would only play with him, scaring the daylights out of him.
Really, at this moment, nothing could be done but to fake death.
But in the long run, Xiao Liu’s prayer did not work at all.
Knock, knock, knock
Someone suddenly knocked on the window.
Immediately, Xiao Liu screamed at the top of his lungs and two strings of tears gushed out from the corners of his eyes, much like those special effects in cartoons.
He was just a hopeless wannabe who couldn’t find a job after graduating from college. He entered this business only when he thought he could connect to the stars as a paparazzi.
Now, how could he be frightened by a delicate female star after everything that he went through? But Su Jishi could frighten someone even from a distance!
The damage has been done, his surprise broke the silence inside and outside the car, which pushed Dai Wei to face such situation.
Glaring across Xiao Liu, Dai Wei wished he could throw him back to his nursery school and have him suckle his mother’s breasts again!
Outside the window, Su Jishi’s fingers were still tapping on the window slowly. Clearly the car window was built with a one-way perspective film on the window glass, but her smiling eyes fell straight into the car — straight into the shaken Xiao Liu.
Behind her, the businessman Mu Xiulun, had his hands in his pockets, his expression cold and indifferent as always.
There was really no escape so Dai Wei forcefully wore a kind smile before lowering te car’s window and facing the two giant Buddha.
He was also a person who fought strong winds and big waves. He didn’t know how many rumors about stars derailing and divorcing have exploded, thanks to him. It was safe to say that now, he had the thickest skin in the industry.
This was not so bad, he thought. Dai Wei faintly glee in joy, he already made up in his mind the headline on the front page of tomorrow’s gossip-“Actress Su Jin Seen Last Night with Her Rich Boyfriend Seizing the Camera and Slapping the Reporters!”
Ah! He could now imagine the number of pop-ups and the raise in traffic for this month!Most of all, he could already smell the crisp fragrance of money. All he had to do was to seize this scoop.
“Su Jin, what a coincidence!” he started.
“Coincidence? What coincidence? ” Su Jishi looked at him haughtily. “Didn’t you follow me on purpose?”
Da Wei smiled wryly: “No, no, no, no. Why would I dare to follow you?”
Su Jishi was too lazy to debunk his lies, for all she knew, this man might have pioneered the gossip regarding her weight!
She held the car door with one hand and reached directly into the car window with the other.
Still in trance, Xiao Liu held the camera in his arms and could only watch with his glassy eyes the hand that was getting closer and closer to him…
Will she steal my camera?
Mu Xiulun, who was standing behind her, did not stop her movements. He also wanted to know what the strange Su Jin would do when facing the omnipresent paparazzi tonight.
Even if she did smash the camera, he could still keep the news down and protect her well.
Unfortunately, everyone did not guess Su Jishi’s idea . They only saw her thumb buckled while her middle finger shot outward and the next thing they knew, trimmed vermilion fingernails touched the camera lens and made a crisp noise.
She just busted the expensive camera lens!
Da Wei: “…”
Su Jishi tilted her head and said amusingly, “After a night’s watching, you two really have worked hard.”
Xiao Liu used to see female stars across the screen and across the sea. But now, Su Jin was in front of him in the flesh! Her face, more vivid and androgynous than that in the print advertisement.
With just one smile from her, the perfume which smelled deeply of honey spread made him warm all over. His whole person felt hot and erratic.
He was like a zombie eating his own brain when he spoke these words foolishly, “This hard work is nothing when it comes to serving the people!”
Providing false and old gossip to the people was not a form of any service. Su Jishi thought.
Despite this, she not angered, instead she gave him an encouraging smile. “For your hard work, I’ll give you a piece of information”
The radar on Dai Wei’s head instantly sprang back to life: “How big? Is it exclusive? ”
“Oh! I guarantee you that this scope is big and exclusive.”
“What is it?”
Seeing his enthusiasm, Su Jishi laughed. “You don’t have to follow me and Mr. Mu anymore — I broke up with him. Is this information enough?”
Da Wei: “???”
Xiao Liu: “???”
Looking innocent but not so innocent Mu Xiulun: “???”
