The night of debauchery didn’t make Yang Chen forget about the work he
had due the next day. It wasn’t just a normal work day, but instead the
day when Hui Lin would be participating in the selection match of the top
three of Star of Yu Lei.
Nowadays, Yu Lei’s reputation had grown considerably. After all, the
country in which it operated in had a population that made up a quarter
if the worldâ€™s total population. People loved to talk, especially
during their meals, and Star of Yu Lei had been making the front page
news in recent times. Lin Ruoxi even spent a large amount of money to set
up their very own corner in lots of fashion magazines.
In some sense, it was her way of caring for her little sister. After all,
even though Lin Ruoxi supported Hui Lin’s choice of becoming a star, she
still didnâ€™t want any negative publicity to reach Hui Linâ€™s ears.
Money was still the answer in the confusing and convoluted entertainment
Having such a personage watching the show coupled with her own beauty and
stunning voice, Hui Lin had earned the attention of many and didn’t seem
to be one to go down easily.
It was only Yang Chen’s second time at the studio. Back then, he had come
with An Xin and only had time to take a rough look around the place. But
now, he was at the backstage with some of the producers and staff from
the TV station, watching the rehearsals patiently. He intended to stay
all the way until the show ended.
Even though the ones in charge in the TV station weren’t familiar with
Yang Chen, they were soon notified that he was one of the top executives
in Yu Lei from Zhao Teng’s introduction. To those normal staffers, Yu Lei
International was not unlike a mothership in which they placed all their
hopes and dreams in. Those billions of yuan in investments were no joke.
So, they held Yang Chen in a position that rivaled a deity and made sure
that he had everything he needed to feel at home.
When the performance started, Yang Chen sat quietly in his VIP booth with
nobody else but Zhao Teng and Wang Jie. Not a single one of them said a
After the show host finished the introductions, the ten remaining Star of
Yu Lei contestants were sent on stage. The judges for this elimination
match was Yoo Yeonhee and two other famous musicians.
“Is Miss Yoo going to be the judge for the final match too?” asked Yang
Chen to Wang Jie, seemingly having thought of something.
Wang Jie was rather surprised. Since she had tagged along by Yang Chen’s
side for quite some time, she more or less understood what he intended.
With a smile, she said, “She won’t be. We don’t need that woman with Miss
Yang Chen was quite satisfied with this answer. Actually, he believed
that Yoo Yeonhee would’ve long been dismissed from the panel if he had
his way with things.
All of a sudden, the entrance of his booth was pushed open. Yang Chen was
shocked because the one who came in wasn’t someone from the station, but
rather Lin Ruoxi, who was dressed in a white-lace dress.
It was a rare thing, seeing her out of her usual work attire. Her casual
attire made her seem like she was going to take a walk by the
spanish-coast-like beaches of Zhonghai. A waft of soothing jasmine
fragrance filled the room announcing her entrance.
Wang Jie and Zhao Teng nervously stood up and greeted her. “Good day,
President!” After that, they gave each other a look before leaving the
Lin Ruoxi merely gave a curt nod and waited for the two of them to leave
before slowly walking to Yang Chen’s side. She pulled a rattan chair
towards her, placed her bag on the rug and arranged her hair before she
Yang Chen looked at her elegant movements and felt the tingling sensation
grow stronger by the minute. He really wondered whether his wife was
secretly cultivating to be an immortal. At this point, he would even be
surprised if she suddenly ascended to become a fairy
“I didn’t think someone as busy as you would find the time to attend,”
said Yang Chen with a smile. He actually wanted to ask what she talked to
the crazy woman, Christen, about, but he later thought against it. If Lin
Ruoxi wanted to talk about it, she would. If she didn’t, she would just
respond to him coldly leading him nowhere.
Lin Ruoxi gave him a look without saying a single word. But the meaning
behind her gaze was clear: ‘Since even you are here, I have to be here as
Yang Chen shrugged. The two of them actually understood each other quite
well. He instantly understood what she was trying to convey and said
nothing more, save for a bitter chuckle.
The performance soon began on stage. The ten female contestants sang
competently and looked brilliant. The tension they had with one another
was also quite pronounced. Even the so-called ‘besties’ didn’t hold
anything back when it came to the competition.
Everyone was aware that Christen would be the judge for the finals, which
would make the ratings for that episode shoot through the roof. Becoming
one of the top three meant rising to an unimaginable amount of fame in an
instant. Had it not been for the fact that already established singers
couldn’t participate in the match, there wouldn’t be a chance for
fledgling stars like them.
When Hui Lin got on stage, the audience got even more worked up. It was
quite apparent that the support Hui Lin got was far beyond anyoneâ€™s
When Hui Lin and another contestant were being rated, only Yoo Yeonhee
gave the other contestant a high score.
Lin Ruoxi furrowed her brow slightly at the sight of that. She was
obviously not satisfied with Yoo Yeonhee’s actions.
“It seems that the woman has something against us. Even though she knows
that Hui Lin will enter the final round, she’s still pulling stunts like
this one. She knows that we’re watching from here, so she wants to
displease us,” said Yang Chen.
Lin Ruoxi nodded, agreeing for once with what Yang Chen said.
Yang Chen merely yawned. To be honest, he wasn’t really interested in
shows such as these. Had it not been for his promise to Hui Lin that he
would be there to watch, he wouldn’t have been willing to come.
When Yang Chen was about to say something else to Lin Ruoxi to stave off
his boredom and use the chance to improve their relationship, a rather
uncomfortable atmosphere could be felt from outside the booth.
Yang Chen creased as he turned back to see the door of the booth being
Lin Ruoxi noticed that Yang Chen wasnâ€™t looking quite right and faced
in the direction he was looking. When she saw the person there, even she
was surprised. There was a look of slight panic in her eyes.
The one who came was clad in a low-collared, purple sheepskin shirt and a
pair of tight-fitting jeans. He seemed to be dressed really
energetically. Coupled with his manly face, he would no doubt make many a
girl turn their heads. “Apologies. I seem to have interrupted the quality
time you two were spending. Long time no see, Brother, Sister-in-law.”
Yang Lie wore an insidious smile with a hint of darkness in his eyes that
seemed like and endless well of ink.
Yang Chen knew that at some point in his life, he would once again be
reunited with this man. However, he didn’t think that their reunion would
be that soon.
Back then, he only knew that Yu Jizi brought Yang Lie back to Kunlun to
recover. Now, it seemed that he had healed up. It almost seemed like he
had relied on some kind of precious medicine that even raised his power
by a level.
Yang Lie’s power back then could only compare with the likes of Sky
Dragon in the Yellow Flame Iron Brigade. But now, it seemed like he could
be considered among the strongest agents in the world.
Naturally, that level of ability was still far from the Xiantian realm.
When he heard Yang Lie call him ‘brother’ and Lin Ruoxi ‘sister-in-law’,
he didn’t feel anything. Lin Ruoxi on the other hand blushed slightly.
Even though she was aware that Yang Chen’s relationship with him wasn’t
that good, she was technically still his sister-in-law.
However, Lin Ruoxi soon realized that Yang Chen didn’t look too pleasant.”
“It wasn’t that long. At least, I felt it was rather short,” said Yang
Yang Lie shrugged and snickered. “Is that so? Naturally, you don’t think
that it has been that long because you’re all standing. I, on the other
hand, felt like dying when I was still bedridden.”
“If you’re here to talk about what happened, then I suggest you make your
leave now.” Yang Chen didn’t really want to butt in those matters. Yang
Lie’s appearance had disrupted his pleasant state of mind.
Even though his training in the martial realm kept on rising, his mental
training was only at the level of a young man in his twenties.
“I’m here to see the woman I love. You don’t have to avoid me like this,
you know,” mocked Yang Lie.
Yang Chen stomped and squinted. “Don’t even think about using Hui Lin to
get stronger. If I find out that you did anything to her… I’ll see to it
that you be sent back to your bed. I can just as easily do that as I can
let you rise up from your bed again.”
“Are you threatening me?” said Yang Lie solemnly, no longer smiling.
“I’m only telling you the truth,” said Yang Chen, before he turned to
leave the room.
Yang Chen had a hunch that Yang Lie’s appearance in Zhonghai wasn’t just
because he wanted to see Hui Lin. When he thought about the election, a
troubling thought entered his mind. Seeing Yang Chen leave, Lin Ruoxi
also stood up. She wanted to face Yang Lie alone and felt quite bothered
by how she was somewhat afraid of that man. It was as if she was facing a
panther that was crushed beneath a stone that could break free at any
time to bite into the innards of any enemy.
“You will definitely regret it. He can’t make you happy,” said Yang Lie
with a laugh all of a sudden.
Lin Ruoxi, who was about to leave the room, stopped. But she didn’t turn
Yang Lie turned around and teased, “He will… bring you to ruin with him…”
She took a deep breath and felt her heart calm down. Looking back, she
smiled nonchalantly and said, “Is that really so? But before I met him,
I’ve already been ruined a number of times. So really, whatâ€™s the worst
that could happen.”
When she finished, Lin Ruoxi left the booth.
Yang Lie heard the sound of the door being shut and touched the round
table beside him gently.
Bam! He let out a pained growl and the wooden table was powdered after
enduring that rampant force, leaving nothing but a bunch of sawdust on
