After dinner, Fang You Ran went to the kitchen to wash the dishes, and Ji Han Yu was lying on the sofa watching TV.
Zhou Yun Sheng sat down beside him and asked in a low voice, “If you’re short on money, why don’t you ask your uncle for it? The Cao family has plenty of money.”
Ji Han Yu was obviously very disgusted hearing the word ‘money’ come out of his mouth, he looked a little impatient, “Money that’s not mine, it’s my uncle’s. Besides, don’t you know? Although my mother is surnamed Cao, she’s only an illegitimate child. Whenever we visited home, it almost infuriated my grandmother death, it’d be strange if my uncle helped us.”
“No way ah, he really seems to be fond of you, doesn’t he always invite you out to dinner?” Zhou Yun Sheng persistently questioned.
“Where is he ‘inviting me to dinner’? He just wants to appreciate me and my mother’s miserable expressions. The Ji family’s collapse is his handiwork, he doesn’t care about our life and death. If I wasn’t afraid of offending him, do you think I’d go to his dinners? All right, stop asking, it’s annoying!” Ji Han Yu threw him a sharp look.
Zhou Yun Sheng was silent, he went back to his room and locked the door.
Although Ji Han Yu was now Lin ChengZe’s boyfriend in name, because Lin ChengZe was well versed in the art of seduction, they haven’t had sex yet. Ji Han Yu originally moved into his house to take him to bed, but he fell for the angelic Fang You Ran in Lin ChengZe’s house. Since then, he always took the initiative to sleep on the sofa.
For Zhou Yun Sheng, this was a blessing in disguise. Ji Han Yu, this hairless, late-stage Chunibyo rebellious teen, really wasn’t his type.
With only two hundred remaining in the living expenses, the current Lin ChengZe and Ji Han Yu actually relied on Fang You Ran’s paycheck to support themselves. As a villain, Zhou Yun Sheng was inevitably infected with the bad habit of enjoying luxury, it was simply unbearable to not have any money to spend freely.
“All right, I have to quickly find a fast and lucrative job.” Zhou Yun Sheng muttered while turning on his computer. His fingertips flew over the keyboard, filtering useful information.
Lin ChengZe had no diploma or experience, looking for a high-end job was out of the question. Fortunately, he was beautiful, so he could always sell a smile or something. Zhou Yun Sheng let his imagination run wild while invading every major entertainment company’s official website. When he found something substantial, his fingertips paused.
The screen that was flashing at lightning speed stopped, displaying a recruitment ad released on the AYA company’s official website. AYA was the world’s largest luxury goods company, their sales included brand name bags, watches, custom-made clothes, perfume, luxury cars and other cutting-edge products.
Having an AYA luxury good was a sign of identity and status, every time it launched a new product, the entire fashion industry vibrated.
This time, AYA was launching a perfume to seize C Country’s perfume market, so they needed to select a model from C Country to shoot a series of ads. Moreover, the requirements for the model was very unique: 1. Be beautiful, additionally, a ‘Helen of Troy’ great beauty, both men and women are okay; 2. Be young, preferably between 15 to 18 years old; 3. Height of at least 175 cm, the skin must also be excellent, don’t apply if skin is not white and silky smooth; 4. Temperament must be unique, both pure and tender, but also charming and mature.
With these four conditions, you could simply screen out 80% or 90% of the entertainment industry.
Zhou Yun Sheng checked each requirement one by one, the corners of his mouth slowly rose. Lin ChengZe was a beauty, certified gorgeous, first item- check; Lin ChengZe was 17 years old, second item-check; Lin ChengZe was 176 cm, as for his skin, Zhou Yun Sheng’s habit was to first adjust the physical data of the original owner to the optimal state, so now, whether it was appearance or constitution or skin, Lin ChengZe was flawless, third item- also check.
As for the fourth, for others it would be a noose, but for Zhou Yun Sheng, this evil spirit that had reincarnated for thousands of years, it was simply a piece of cake. Mature, charming, pure, tender, gentle, ruthless, malevolent, upright … … There were only qualities you’ve never imagined, not qualities he’s never acted out.
Since all the conditions were met, he’d take this one. Zhou Yun Sheng stroked his jaw and planned how to infiltrate the audition.
He hacked into a random entertainment company’s official website, then used his superb hacking skills to create a performing artist identity for himself, linking it to a broker’s name. As he needed to participate in the college entrance exams in June of next year, he signed a contract that expired next April. Then he hacked into AYA’s official website and added his name to the list of candidates.
After all this, he picked up the phone to contact his newly appointed agent.
“Hey, this is Yu MeiLian, who are you?” The keen-witted woman casually asked as she ignited the cigarette perched in her mouth.
“Sister Yu, hello, I’m Lin ChengZe. I was originally one of Simon’s artist, but I’m now under your name. I was transferred a while ago, but I’m only contacting you now, I’m so sorry.” Lin ChengZe’s voice was clear and mellow, very enjoyable to listen to.
Yu MeiLian’s slightly wrinkled brows relaxed a little, she recalled all the artists under Simon, how come she’d never heard of a Lin ChengZe? Simon died a few months ago in a car accident, Yu MeiLian and the other agents divided up his most promising artists. Since this Lin ChengZe hadn’t left an impression in her mind, he should be pretty mediocre.
Thinking of this, Yu MeiLian’s slight interest dimmed. What was the use of only having a pleasant voice? You must also look good ah. The entertainment industry was a pure lookism world.
She was about to give a few perfunctory words and hang up the phone, when the person on the other end gave her explosive news.
“Sister Yu, I was selected to attend AYA’s interview tomorrow, could you come pick me up?”
“Wait, wait, are you sure it was AYA?” Yu MeiLian’s cigarette fell out of her mouth, almost burning a hole in her skirt. She jumped up, patting at herself as she hurriedly asked.
AYA was the most luxurious of luxury brands, every spokesperson for their products was the most influential of international superstars. This time, they were picking a newcomer with great difficulty, which entertainment company wasn’t covetously eyeing the spot? Everyone was scrambling to break into the interview list.
Yu MeiLian had pulled all the stops to bring one of her artists into the interview, but they were ultimately rejected. Her rival was lucky enough to get a spot.
But while Yu MeiLian was busy sulking, a meat pie fell from the sky.
She gripped the phone, asking in a heavy voice, “How did you get this spot? Who managed you?”
“No one managed me. I was taking a stroll when I bumped into a foreigner named Bonnie. He slipped me a business card and said I absolutely had to participate in the AYA interview. I didn’t believe it before, but I just saw the list of candidates AYA announced, that’s why I called you.”
Zhou Yun Sheng’s voice was very nervous, but his expression was lazy and leisurely, winding and unwinding a lock of hair on his forehead.
“You wait there, I’ll take a look,” Yu MeiLian pushed down her trembling heart to open AYA’s official website. Sure enough, Lin ChengZe’s name was on the list. Her heart jumped wildly for a moment, then she opened the company’s backend to access his artist profile.
Lin ChengZe’s extremely gorgeous face leapt out, freezing her in her seat.
What the hell, such a stunner, how did she miss him? Were her eyes blocked with feces? Fortunately, fortunately the artists leftover from their selection were randomly assigned by the company. He just happened to be assigned to her name, truly, when luck came, it was unstoppable! If Lin ChengZe couldn’t become famous, then he was simply unworthy of the face God gave him!
Yu MeiLian took a few deep breaths, only then did her voice sound much calmer, “Ah, I see it, you’re on the list. Where do you live? I’ll pick you up at half past eight tomorrow.”
Zhou Yun Sheng reported an address, then hung up the phone. He rolled up in his quilt and fell asleep, relieved.
The next day, Zhou Yun Sheng was eating breakfast while he explained to Ji Han Yu, “I won’t be going to class for a while, ask for a leave of absence for me.”
Ji Han Yu didn’t care about his reasons, merely nodding.
Zhou Yun Sheng glanced at him and said in a gentle tone, “Don’t worry, although the Ji family went bankrupt, we’ll certainly think of a way out. Never say never.”
Ji Han Yu didn’t even look back at him, saying a very perfunctory ‘ah’, but in his heart, he ridiculed Lin ChengZe’s pretending. He obviously despised him to death, but still wouldn’t break up with him. Wasn’t he fancying his rich friends, and wanted to use him to build a bridge? As long as you dare to step on this bridge, I will make you fall, complete devastation!
Last night, Fang You Ran was forcibly kissed by Ji Han Yu again, so this morning, he was somewhat absent-minded. He didn’t even dare speak to Lin ChengZe, and also didn’t question his announcement.
After breakfast, the two boys left for school together, and Zhou Yun Sheng went back to his room to change into a white shirt and light blue jeans. He was pushing his phone into his pocket when it rang, it was Yu MeiLian.
“I’m here, come downstairs. It’s a black Audi car, license plate number xxxxx.”
Zhou Yun Sheng acknowledged her and leisurely took the elevator downstairs.
When he got into the car, Yu MeiLian sized him up from head to toe. Her eyes were pleased, like she’d picked up a treasure.
“Stretch out your hand for me to feel, if your skin is not up to standard, we won’t even bother to drive over.” She brazenly took advantage, marveling at the delicate sensation under her fingertips.
“Bonnie also touched me, so I took him for a pervert.” Zhou Yun Sheng’s cheeks reddened slightly, his beauty was even more eye-catching.
Yu MeiLian laughed, while driving, she inquired, “What year are you in?”
“High School senior, I’m taking the college entrance exams in June.”
“Then what do you intend to do after that? Your parents are dead, so you must get a job to support yourself, right? I read your contract, it’ll expire at the end of April. God gave this face to you, if you don’t use it to make a living, it’s simply a waste. As long as you’re willing to renew the contract with me, I promise to turn you into an international star. Look at you now, no diploma, no work experience, and so young, other companies won’t want you ah! Not to mention, the money you can make will be less … …” Yu MeiLian spared no effort to lobby, afraid of losing the treasure that fell into her hands.
“Let’s have this discussion after I finish shooting the ad. My parents always hoped that I’d go to a prestigious university, I want to realize their final wishes.” Zhou Yun Sheng exposed a timely melancholy look.
Yu MeiLian went silent, after a moment, she teased, “What ‘finish shooting the ad’? You think you’re guaranteed to get the position ah?”
Zhou Yun Sheng looked askance at her, his lips slightly raised.
Those confident eyes and electric expression were too powerful, Yu MeiLian couldn’t endure it. She looked forward, flustered, but her heart was smiling in satisfaction.
