Chapter 160: Untitled
GK released a series of photos of Third Young Master Ye living together
with Cheng Anya and Ning Ning.
There was also a small MV where the young kid loudly called for his daddy
The best segment was the short story that accompanied the expose. It had
a very artistic title: After Seven Years of Heartache, Third Young Master
Ye Wins the Heart of the Beau!
When Third Young Master Ye read the papers the next day, he had a slight
smile on his face as he gently crumpled the papers and cursed all of
Klose’s ancestors once over. He could not resist the temptation of
Klose’s face appearing before him and being his punching bag.
Ning Ning excitedly flipped open the papers and read the short story. He
rolled on the sofa as he laughed. Third Young Master Ye’s gentle, yet
lethal gaze was slightly tempered.
He held the papers and laughed crazily as he ran to the sofa!
The story was actually very simple—Third Young Master Ye and Miss
Cheng’s feelings for the past seven years. This was Third Young Master
Ye’s original intention, but the twist came when Klose preserved the
start and the end of the story and replaced the middle with a campy story
he cooked up himself.
He almost implicated everybody in a campy story of magnates.
And so the story goes—Seven years ago, Third Young Master Ye and Miss
Cheng fell in love. Both led a happy life but the Ye family objected to
their relationship. Old Master Ye tried to split the lovebirds up and
some lady got her finger in the pie. Some families went to arms and
forced the powerless Miss Cheng to escape from City A. Third Young Master
Ye fasted in protest and the two contemplated eloping. Who knew Third
Young Master Ye encountered an accident and lost his memory. Miss Cheng
waited at the airport for a night, and when she received news of Third
Young Master Ye’s death, she lost all her feelings for him and boarded
the plane, never to return to City A.
Third Young Master Ye waited for Miss Cheng for a painful seven years.
Whilst he impatiently hoped for her return, he looked for a glimpse of
Miss Cheng in one woman after another. The story took on a tragic turn
and became sad, sorrowful. Third Young Master Ye’s philandering ways
were portrayed as a dying romance that spanned seven years. Third Young
Master Ye’s flirty ways were justified by his image of one who was
enamored with love.
The words carried exceptional emotional torque and brought many to tears.
After all, the story returned to Miss Cheng. Her years spent bringing up
her child were described in the most tragic manner possible, and she was
portrayed as a woman who endured endless suffering.
Seven years later, the two of them reunited.
As they reunited after their separation, they faced opposition. Klose
wrote the romance between Cinderella and her Prince Charming into a
campy, yet touching story.
This was especially so during the dating period. He fabricated a few
interesting anecdotes about what Third Young Master Ye did when he
pursued Miss Cheng. It was passionate, stupid, and an unfortunate
one-sided love story between young men. This was a stark contrast between
the elegant, cold, and brutal Third Young Master Ye. The story was trying
to show the damage love could do to a man, and how Third Young Master Ye
became so cold, brutal, and indifferent in his pursuit of Miss Cheng.
The papers helped garner sympathy for Third Young Master Ye.
Gritting his teeth, Third Young Master Ye read on. It was said that the
president of GK International Media, Klose, had personally penned it.
Most who knew Klose could not help but shed tears of sympathy for Third
Young Master Ye.
Instead of GK’s typical fair and authoritative reporting, this seemed a
tad like the tabloids. That, however, would not stop people from
frantically buying the papers. It also would not affect GK’s fairness
and authoritative reporting.
GK International Media remained mum and not reported anything despite the
huge incident between the Ye and the Yun families. A sudden, sensational
report from them was no doubt surprising.
Within a day, it had outsold the hot-selling newspapers. It was firmly at
the top of the sales charts.
“Klose, you sicko. What did you turn me into?” Third Young Master Ye
called the former and said with gritted teeth. He could not resist the
temptation to murder him, for he was not the idiot the papers described
him to be.
Eloping… Damn it, the old man who was above board, the reluctant Old
Master Ye… If it had nothing to do with him, why would he need to
elope? Eloping would do just fine, and he was ill-fated enough to meet
with an accident? F***!
“Hey, baby, have you seen the papers? See how my writing skills have
not deteriorated. Talk about years ago when I was the best writer at
Harvard. Hahaha…” Klose laughed gleefully.
Third Young Master Ye’s veins throbbed. This sicko must have been
really restless recently. “This is quite different from the original
script I sent!”
“Hey, I’d say that the script you sent had no substance in it. There
was nothing that would garner attention. As I read it, I made amendments
to it to make it livelier. Look at how sales are topping the charts
today. Well, Third Young Master Ye baby, you ought to work on your
writing skills. It’s too stiff. Look at my writing skills. How
artistic, how touching, and I am so head over heels over myself. You’ve
got a lot to learn.”
Third Young Master Ye had the feeling that his explanations went over
Klose’s head. He was whistling in the wind.
“This is considered twisting the facts, leading to inaccurate
reporting! Also, you have ruined my image!” The last point was the most
important. Third Young Master Ye was almost shouting about why he was
written into a hot-blooded cultural person. Ahhhhhhh…
“Actually, you had no good image to speak of previously. Look at how I
have portrayed Third Young Master Ye in such a cute manner. Hehe. As for
the reporting, what matters most is the effect generated thereafter.
Comparing the original effect you intended with the effect created by
what I had worked on, it’s safe to say that the latter is a hundred
times more impactful than the former. Dude, take a lesson here. When
it’s time to be campy, be campy. That’s a skill!” Klose said
seriously. With this paper, the public opinion began to swing in Third
Young Master Ye’s favor.
To achieve his goal, earn, get to see some drama, and troll Third Young
Master Ye, it was killing four birds with one stone… What happiness!
“Let’s hope you do not end up in my hands. I promise you a terrible
death!” Third Young Master Ye said through gritted teeth and hung up
the phone angrily. Klose had a hearty laugh, for recent events were
indeed very happening!
Summer was a season when passion burned unbridled.
“Daddy, the effect created is actually very good. I sympathize with you
after reading it!” Ning Ning held the papers and walked in. “Klose is
indeed extremely talented!” Ning Ning said, laughing.
“Ning Ning…” Third Young Master Ye dragged his name. Ning Ning
threw the newspapers aside and laughed out loud.
Klose was the best person in the media industry. His ability to respond
to people and his sensitivity to popular opinion was much more acute than
anybody else. Anything that he worked on, however pedestrian, would
undoubtedly rile up the crowd.
So, this report was a success!
Third Young Master Ye definitely knew it was a successful report, but he
was indignant at the fact that he became a fair game for Klose to troll.
Ning Ning sympathized with him.
There was now another version of his daddy and mommy’s love story.
Sigh… One could not tell whether it had the slightest relation to the
As he spoke, Cheng Anya limped out as she supported her leg. Third Young
Master Ye quickly ran out to carry her down whilst Ning Ning ran into the
kitchen and brought breakfast out. Father and son had a very good rapport.
“Mommy, did you have a good night’s sleep?” Ning Ning gave her a
morning kiss and greeted her with a smile.
“Very good!” Her reply was punctuated by a yawn. Both father and son
rolled their eyes at each other.
Cheng Anya looked at Third Young Master Ye and recalled the post she saw
last night. She was in a good mood whilst Third Young Master Ye was
mulling over his image. Cheng Anya conveniently took the newspaper next
Ning Ning, who was bringing the milk out, let out a gasp. Third Young
Master Ye raised his eyebrows and his expression changed. “Who is so
talented to whip up such a campy story?” Miss Cheng slowly said as she
raised her eyebrows.
