It was an endorsement advertisement for a functional beverage, and the image spokesperson was Qiao Qiyun.
The culprit who caused the original owner’s miscarriage and died on the street, that hot traffic star.
Originally, Qiao Qiyun contacted Shen Ran because of the personal connections between the Shen family and the Min family.
His original intention was to maintain a relationship of dew lover1Raw 露水情缘(Lùshuǐ qíngyuán); Refers to a temporary bond of love., who knows he would take it seriously after sleeping a few times.
Qiao Qiyun, who had no background, wanted to break up for fear of offending these two families.
And yet he doesn’t want to offend Shen Ran, for fear that his future wouldn’t be easy.
Coincidentally, Shen family fell into a bankruptcy crisis, and Shen Ran was kicked out of the house by Min Xingchuan.
Qiao Qiyun had no scruples and dumped Shen Ran directly.
Looking at Qiao Qiyun’s hypocritical face on the big screen, Shen Ran tsk-ed.
Sure enough, people have to control their lower half of body, otherwise the chance of encountering scumbag would be really hard to prevent.
But this Qiao Qiyun, he better don’t come to harassed him again in this life, people can’t make two blunder on one thing in every case.
Just as Shen Ran’s imagination has run wild, the cell phone in his pocket vibrated.
He took out his cell phone, and it was a WeChat message from Ruan Letian.
The tone was still his usual ‘grumpy old man2Raw 暴躁老哥(Bàozào lǎo gē); is a term used to describe people who frequently utter vulgar words in the Tieba\Games\Forum .‘ tone: “I’m so angry, I’m so angry! The Concert Tour obviously has ended, and they agreed to give me a half-year of vacation! This half year, in addition to the publicity without giving me any announcements, they also added a fan meeting! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, originally I could fly back to meet you today, now it’s all ruined again!”
The corners of Shen Ran’s lips twitched, this grumpy old man’s character setting really stood firm.
He still remember Ruan Letian himself tearing anti-fan on his Weibo main account, until the anti-fan were doubting life.
Such a friend, were really unbearable to most people.
He replied: “When will you be back?”
This time Ruan Letian responded quickly: “On the next week at the earliest, why? Miss dad?”
Shen Ran replied: “Fuck! Scram!”
Ruan Letian replied: “Hahahahahaha! Ranzi3The 然(ran) in 然子(Ranzi) is 申然(shen ran)‘s name. I’m not sure why they like to add 子(zi) in their name. I assume this might be because they have close relationship like between best friend or parents to child or big bro to lil bro)?? I seem to read an explanation about this in a danmei translation a long long time ago but I forgot which one and I can’t find the explanation of this anywhere Orz If any of you know, please share~, have you win over Min Xingchuan already?”
Shen Ran thought for a while, and replied: “Daddy doesn’t want to find you a stepmother for the time being, probably will be single for a lifetime.”
There was silence for a long time, and after a long time, there was a bunch of replies: “That’s also okay, you chased him for so many years, you also can’t catch him anyway. You don’t have to hang on a crooked-necked tree4Raw 歪脖子树(Wāi bó zǐ shu); Crooked neck tree. Use to described someone of no good choice or not a well match couple.! There are so many handsome guys in the circle, wait for big brother5Ruan Letian refers to himself to come back and introduce you to a high-quality one. I’m not urging you to have an affair! I just feel upset. He has left you hanging for so many years, we have to teach him a bit of lesson. Turn around and kicked him back, see if he still bully you like that again!”
Ruan Letian was genuinely thought for the sake of Shen Ran, and when Shen Ran was sad because of Min Xingchuan, he has comforted him many times.
But some iron trees really can’t be irrigated to bloom, and if they force it, it will only make Shen Ran even more sad.
Shen Ran replied: “Then I will wait for you to come back.”
Ruan Letian replied again: “Oh, yes, there will be a charity auction next week in H City. Would you like to attend with me?”
Shen Ran didn’t think much about it. He hadn’t dared to think about an occasions like this before. Since there was such opportunity, he wanted to go and see the aspect of society.
He replied: “Okay! Then, call me when you come back.”
Ruan Letian was Shen Ran’s only best friend.
In the original book, Ruan Letian was so good to Shen Ran that even if the whole world was on the opposite side, Ruan Letian would has always stood on Shen Ran’s side.
Even such a good friend was also saddened by Shen Ran and alienated from him.
Because Ruan Letian, like Qiao Qiyun, was also an idol trainee returning from overseas.
In the country, Ruan Letian’s development was equally indistinguishable from Qiao Qiyun, even to the point where king does not see the king6Raw 王不见王(Wáng bùjiàn wáng); an idiom derived from the language of chess, like one mountain cannot tolerate two tigers. It means that two people who are strong in the same field never meet or when two incompatible people meet, there will be conflicts..
In the words of fans circle, it was the opponents7 Raw is 对家(Duì jiā). I’m not sure if opponent is the right term in english, please let me know if I’m wrong..
Ruan Letian naturally understands what kind of person Qiao Qiyun was.
Those days the two of them worked as trainees in the same overseas star-making company, and they were in the same team after their debut.
In the initial stages of Shen Ran and Qiao Qiyun mutual exchanged, Ruan Letian reminded Shen Ran that Qiao Qiyun had a character problem, and asked him to stay away from each other.
Yet he was questioned by Shen Ran whether he had any prejudice against Qiao Qiyun.
As the relationship between Shen Ran and Qiao Qiyun became more and more complicated, Ruan Letian failed to talked to him many times, and eventually lost this friend.
But even so, after Ruan Letian knew that he(SR) had died on the street, he was still the first one to rush back from the crew. When he saw him for the last time, he couldn’t help but cry so much and scolded his stupidity for a long time.
He was a very good friend.
Gradually, he heard the reminder sound of arrival at the station, Shen Ran got off the bus with a backpack on his back.
Behind him were the whispered voices of several girls: “So handsome, so beautiful, like a little prince.”
Shen Ran was speechless, he got out of the bus and flee, ten minutes later, he ran up to the facade house and found that Chi Haoyu had already started work.
Shen Ran greeted him, and Chi Haoyu responded, “Morning.”
The bookworm’s ten fingers fly quickly, he did not look up at Shen Ran, and keep working hard in typing the code on hand.
Yesterday, Shen Ran had an idea for APP, and early on this morning, he talked to Chi Haoyu about the development direction of the APP.
Chi Haoyu asked: “Does Boss mean… A Live Webcast platform?”
Shen Ran nodded: “Yes, for example…cough, online singers, online dancers, online game anchors’ live broadcast platform.”
Chi Haoyu shook his head: “No, I’ve never heard of it, it’s unheard of. Usually it’s broadcast live on TV stations, but I haven’t heard of internet live broadcasts.”
Sure enough, there was no corresponding Live Broadcasting Website in this era. It seemed that he can be the first person to eat crabs.
This was the project he came up with last night, to build a Live Webcast Platform.
In addition to this, he really can’t think of any projects that can make one hundred thousand yuan without investing.
When the time comes, hopefully there will be a few more otaku big shots, can give more reward to the anchors, and he will be able to sit down and had his share.
Shen Ran and Chi Haoyu discussed the corresponding development functions, and then asked: “What do you think? How long can you develop such a project?”
Chi Haoyu thought for a while, and said, “There is no problem in developing the primary program in a short time, and I just have a similar application in my hand, I can make some alteration on it. It’s just…Boss, you also need an art designer and a net editor to manage online and offline platforms.”
After all, if one wanted to run an APP, it can’t be solved with just one programmer.
Shen Ran concealed his embarrassment with a light cough, and said: “Art designer…Art designer ah! Yes, I’m the art designer and editor. Just tell me what you need, and I will try my best to satisfy you.”
Shen Ran once worked part-time in an advertising company, and PS8Prgnt Shop. An art term. I have zero knowledge about art, so I look up this word at Google, but it direct me to Print shop(???) was what he learned at that time.
Shen Ran still knows the basic art knowledge.
As for web editor…isn’t all was learned by humans?
It doesn’t matter, he can learn!
So he started to find tutorials on the Internet, download PS, and learn how to manage a mobile app.
So while scratching his head and ears, Shen Ran spent the whole morning like this.
As it approached noon, Su Su’s voice was heard again: “Dear one, you should take on a new task!”
Shen Ran rubbed his sore eyes and said, “…Okay, I forgot.”
He suddenly felt that even though he seemed to have the wealth that disregarded the entire H City, why was it still so hard?
Never mind, he was born with the fate to worry and being tired.
Shen Ran entered the spiritual space and took on a new task.
With the sound of a beep, the system reminded: “Congratulations to the Host for accepting the fourth Primary Task. The goal of this task is to formally establish an investment project. The task reward is 10 credits point.”
Isn’t this a coincidence?
Shen Ran was happy, he had just determined the direction of software development, and the task of establishing the project has arrived.
He immediately asked: “How to launch the project?”
At this time, customer service Su Su came out again: “Dear one, you can fill in this form, and fill in the project name and estimated completion time according to the requirements.”
Shen Ran filled out the project approval form with the help of Su Su, and soon there was a reminder of task completion from the system, and he received 10 more credits again.
Shen Ran has nothing to do and chat idly with Su Su, “Is there any use for this credit points?”
Su Su replied: “Dear one’s credit value is maintained in a balanced state, so that the task can proceed smoothly. If the task fails, the credit points will be deducted, and the difficulty of the subsequent tasks will also increase.”
Shen Ran understand the general idea now, it turn out that the credit points were not always increasing positively.
Su Su reminded him: “Don’t think that the current tasks are simple, because the preparatory tasks at each stage are very simple. Dear one must complete all the tasks before you can upgrade. If you fail at the first level, you must try again to earn the corresponding amount of credit points.”
Shen Ran tsk-ed and said, “This doesn’t seem to be the same as what you said at the beginning ah!”
Su Su was full of black lines and said in embarrassment: “That… Dear one, a great deed, also need hard work to obtain ah!”
Shen Ran took a deep breath and said, “Okay, I know, you go ahead!”
With a ding dong, Su Su went offline.
Shen Ran pressed his temples with a headache, planning to make a few leaflets and go to the university town to do some publicity.
Before designing the flyer, Shen Ran thought of an eye-catching and bright title.
“Do you want to be an internet celebrity? Do you want to be a star?”
It looked very much like an MLM organization and a leaflet for a camp of scammers.
But he knew that this kind of temptation was the most attractive for teenage boys and girls in their adolescence.
When the leaflet was designed, it was almost two o’clock in the afternoon, and Shen Ran was about to go out to buy lunch, only to find a clean lunch box on the table.
In front of the desktop computer, Chi Haoyu said embarrassedly: “Boss, I stewed the soup myself, and the steamed buns I just bought outside. If you don’t dislike it, just have some!”
Shen Ran didn’t expected Xiao Chi to prepare lunch for him, but he was really hungry, so he was not polite to him.
He said: “Wow? Thank you so much!”
As he said that, he sat down at the small dining table, opened the lunch box and ate it ravenously.
Not to mention, the soup made by Xiao Chi was quite delicious.
At the headquarters of ChuanXing Group, Min Xingchuan was so busy that he forgot to have lunch.
He frowned and looked at the cold luxury lunch box, and had no appetite even more.
The assistant knocked on the door, he put away the lunch box, and said solemnly: “Come in.”
The assistant bowed and said, “Chief Min, Mr. Luo asks if you would like to participate in the charity auction next week.”
