After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 270 First Life Part 2

He clearly knew that he was dreaming, and vaguely guessed why the “Tao Mu” in this life turned into Shen Yu. Tao Mu, who was even more curious about what would happen next, calmed down and watched the development of the dream patiently.

“Tao Mu” cried for a long time in the bathroom, and when he finally returned to the set with red and swollen eyes, everyone had almost finished their lunch. “Tao Mu” missed the time to get the boxed lunch, and it was the unit manager who scolded him just now who kindly helped “Tao Mu” get a boxed lunch. It was just that “Tao Mu” stayed in the bathroom for too long, and the boxed lunch was already cold. In order to please his childhood friend, Yao Wenxiao ordered all the dishes according to Shen Er’s taste. Shen Er was from Shanghai, so he was more used to eating Shanghainese food. Shanghainese food was originally in the style of thick oily red sauce, and so the taste was a bit greasy when it was cold. Of course, the chef’s skills were extraordinary, “Tao Mu” still gobbled down the boxed lunch. He could also hear the other staff members of the production team flattering Yao Wenxiao and the Second Young Master Shen. Saying that Yao Wenxiao was straightforward and generous, and said that although Second Young Master Shen came from a wealthy family, he was able to endure hardships. He didn’t even need a stand-in for filming wire and fight scenes, and he could even ride horses and shoot arrows. He was indeed a noble son from a true wealthy family. The foundation was simply stronger than those idol stars who just rely on their faces to make a living.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

“Tao Mu” curled his lips, disapproving. He felt that Shen Er was just born well, knew how to reincarnate, and had such a pair of rich and powerful parents, so he had the time to learn so many things. For someone like him with a bad fate who was born as an orphan, he had to work hard to survive. The reason he could even complete the nine-year compulsory education was by relying on national policies. And it was a luxury to even go to high school, let alone go to university.

It was obvious that they looked down on people from above, and because they had money to buy people’s hearts, everyone flattered them like they were blind. They didn’t even care about what was right or wrong. It was clearly not his fault, but he was forced to apologize. And he was almost kicked out of the crew just to please them. “Tao Mu” became more and more sad and indignant as he thought about it. He ate the last mouthful of the boxed lunch, but before he had time to even drink a sip of water, he was called to work by the props team.

“Tao Mu” accidentally got a side stitch. Clutching his stomach, he complained of pain, and his face even turned pale from the pain. Seeing this, the assistant director in charge of props and scenery stopped “Tao Mu” from working, and told him to find a corner to rest and come back later.

“Tao Mu” nodded again and again, expressing his thanks, but even more disapproving in his heart. He felt that it was the prop master’s fault that he would get a stitch in his side. Who would force someone to do work while they were still chewing rice grains right after eating? It was simply oppressive child labor.

“Tao Mu” continued to be aggrieved, completely forgetting that the reason why he ate later than others was all because he stayed too long in the bathroom. Besides, the crew had a schedule for filming. When to shoot and what scene to shoot, the prop team must drive out the set props first, so as to ensure the smooth progress of the follow-up shooting work. When one was in a hurry, it was not uncommon for one to work all day hungry, let alone work immediately after eating.

Of course “Tao Mu” would not consider these things. Holding his stomach and hiding in the corner to be lazy. In fact, when the prop master asked him to rest, “Tao Mu” didn’t hurt so much anymore. But it was a fool who would not rest when they were able to. “Tao Mu” was a self-proclaimed smart person, how could he do such a stupid thing.

So this afternoon, “Tao Mu” leisurely shirked his work. Seeing Second Young Master Shen, who was praised and flattered by the entire crew, exchanging moves with the martial arts director and martial arts stand-ins until late into the night, more and more he felt that there was something wrong with Second Young Master Shen.

When obviously he could use a stand-in to film and it was fine to just pose for a few camera takes in front of the camera, but that Second Young Master Shen had to go battle in person, so he was covered in bruises and rub medicine every day. He heard that when the medicine was applied to him, he lost his temper with his assistant because it hurt too much. Wasn’t this the act of an idle person with nothing better to do? He caused the injuries to himself, what right did he have to lose his temper with his assistant? Were assistants not human? Was it wrong to help him apply the medicine with a kind heart?

“Tao Mu” commiserated with Shen Er’s assistant in private, and even found opportunities to try and get close to Shen Er’s assistant. When he learned that Second Master Shen’s assistant was actually a classmate of his at the same school, but because his family was short of money, so he came to work as an assistant for Shen Er temporarily, he became even more indignant.

“How can he do this? Since you are classmates, why didn’t he just lend you money if you are short of money? He also asked you to be his assistant. Isn’t he bullying people?”

“Why do you think this?” The little assistant looked at “Tao Mu” strangely, and couldn’t help but defend Shen Er: “Don’t you have to pay back the borrowed money? Besides, how can this be about money? I am studying advertising planning. It is very helpful for my profession to have the opportunity to personally experience how a film crew shoots. As the saying goes, it is better to teach a man to fish than to give him a fish, and I have to thank Shen Yu for giving me this opportunity.”

Shen Er’s classmate was named Fu Ran, and like Shen Er, he was a top student of Fudan University. It was just that Shen Er was from the Economics Department, and Fu Ran was from the Advertising Department of the School of Journalism. The two were even roommates. Because of his family relationship, Shen Er had been pampered since he was a child and had never suffered much. His temper was a bit arrogant, but he was still easy to get along with in front of family and friends.

Fu Ran’s family was poor, and when he first knew that there was such a big Buddha as Shen Er living in his dormitory, he was very worried. He was afraid that if he accidentally offended the rich young master, or accidentally damaged Shen Er’s things, he wouldn’t be able to pay for it. At that time, he literally trembled over even taking a breath in the dormitory. But as a result, after getting along day and night, Fu Ran found that although Shen Er’s temper was not very good, there was nothing to complain about his character.

He never looked down on others just because his family was rich, let alone show off his wealth deliberately in the dormitory. Just like ordinary people, he skipped classes and stayed up late to play games, and rushed to cram before exams. And his personality was very attentive and considerate, he looked cool and domineering, but his heart was actually very soft. Take Fu Ran becoming his assistant for example, it was because Shen Er accidentally learned that Fu Ran didn’t plan to go back to his hometown during the summer vacation, and instead wanted to distribute flyers outside or work as a cashier to earn tuition and living expenses, so he took the initiative to ask.

“Since you want to take a summer job, come and be my assistant. I’m going to make a drama in the summer vacation, and I just need a life assistant. I’ll give you 8,000 yuan a month, and you join me in the crew. Aren’t you studying advertising? You will have a chance to discuss with the director how to shoot.” When Shen Er said these words, Fu Ran was very embarrassed. It was nothing else, he just didn’t think he was worth 8,000 yuan. One must know that many seniors who graduated from senior year found their first job with a monthly salary of only three or four thousand yuan. What virtue and ability did he, Fu Ran, have to actually make that much money right off the bat.

Fu Ran knew that Shen Yu gave this salary because he had already calculated the total cost of his tuition and living expenses, but Fu Ran felt that he could not agree.

Then Shen Er said again: “You don’t have to feel embarrassed. There must be a reason for me to give this number. You will know when the time comes. As the boss, I have a lot of peculiarities. I will be the one embarrassed if I give less.”

Hearing what Shen Er said, Fu Ran had no choice but to accept the job for now. So he came to H Town with doubts, and secretly thought that if the job was particularly easy and he could also learn something, he would definitely not be able to ask for so much money. In the end, it was not until he got to work officially that he found that Shen Er wasn’t lying at all. After work at two o’clock in the middle of the night, he still dragged Fu Ran to practice lines with him, and then at five o’clock in the morning he had to drive to the breakfast shop to buy a breakfast that matched Shen Er’s taste. And that was just the easiest of his work responsibilities.

The most important thing was that Shen Er, who was addicted to filming, was particularly emotionally unstable. He was not professionally trained, and he had no acting experience. It was the first time he had acted as a male lead, so he was naturally under great pressure. Because Shen Er was the kind of character who must win even if he played a children’s game. So even if he entered the entertainment circle to play around, he must still play above the standard line.

So in this case, in order to relieve the pressure, Shen Er sometimes “tormented” the people around him——for example, when he couldn’t sleep in the middle of the night he would suddenly call the director to see the film footage. When Fu Ran brought the film footage over, he would look through it frame by frame, and retake the parts he was not satisfied with the next day. So much so that the entire crew kept reworking the same scenes. At the beginning, everyone complained, but once they got used to Shen Er’s behavior, they would feel that this kind of person was actually very pure and rare.

One didn’t need to think about financial pressure, life pressure, and messy things like interpersonal relationships. One just had to make sure to do the thing at hand well. Fu Ran felt that “the heart of a child” was the most appropriate way to describe Shen Yu.

Just like a large beast that looked very lethal, it might be scary at the beginning and you dared not approach it, but once you got used to it and looked at it for a long time, you would feel admiration and even dependence in your heart. Feeling very lucky to be able to walk behind this kind of person. Because all the wind and frost on the way forward were endured by him alone, you only need to stare at his back and walk forward with one heart and one mind. When you suddenly come back to your senses, you would be surprised to find that you have already climbed to the top. And you could see more beautiful and magnificent scenery.

Fu Ran also heard about the conflict between “Tao Mu” and Yao Wenxiao. He knew that “Tao Mu” was an orphan. He was only seventeen or eighteen years old this year. He was about the same age as them but he couldn’t go to college but had to go out to make a living. He felt that it was not easy for this child, so he kindly advised him: “Don’t treat Shen Yu with prejudice, he’s actually a really nice guy.”

“Tao Mu” sneered secretly. He felt that Fu Ran was also the kind of superficial person who “gained benefits so had to return the favor”. Because he took Shen Er’s eight thousand yuan, he felt that Shen Er was a good person. But in fact, for a person like Shen Er, what was eight thousand yuan? It was just a single meal’s money. It sounded so good on the surface, but it was just enslaving his classmate. Only a person like Fu Ran would be grateful. Perhaps in Shen Er’s mind, that he could spend money to hire a top student from Fudan University to be his assistant and be able to boss him around was actually a point of pride!

Thinking of this, “Tao Mu” suddenly felt something was off: “I heard from other crew members that the Second Young Master Shen is only 18 years old this year, why is he already in college?”

“He is actually not yet eighteen! Shen Yu’s birthday is on July 7th. Speaking of which, he will celebrate his birthday this year with the crew.” Fu Ran smiled before answering “Tao Mu”: “I heard that Shen Yu went to school two years earlier. Because the eldest son of the Shen family is a child prodigy who skipped grades all throughout school, graduating from a well-known foreign university when he was less than twenty years old. Then he returned to China to formally take over the business of the Shen Group. Shen Yu admired his elder brother very much, it’s just that in his own words, his brain is not as smart as his elder brother’s. So he went to school two years earlier to try to follow in his elder brother’s footsteps.”

“Tao Mu” didn’t hear what Fu Ran said afterwards, and asked in a daze: “The Second Young Master Shen’s birthday is on July 7?”

“Yeah!” Fu Ran nodded and asked curiously, “What’s wrong?”

“Nothing!” “Tao Mu” shook his head absentmindedly. He just didn’t expect such a coincidence. That Second Young Master Shen’s birthday was actually exactly the same as his birthday.

He heard from the director of the orphanage that when he was picked up, he was wearing a bracelet on his arm with his date of birth on it, which was also July 7th!

“Tao Mu” looked at the film set with a complicated face. At Second Young Master Shen who was so tired that he was sweating profusely, and even his makeup was worn off. And after applying his makeup, he still went back to exchange moves with the martial arts instructor.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

The two people were born on the same day in the same year, one was an orphan who was tragically abandoned by his biological parents, and the other was the noble young master of a wealthy family. One was a pitiful person who had to step into society after graduating from junior high school and struggled to survive after experiencing the indifference and disdain of the world. The other was a lucky guy who could enter school two years early, study at a prestigious university, and play the leading role so easily after first stepping into the entertainment circle to play around.

Why was God so unfair? That the ranks between people should be so clearly divided!

“Tao Mu” tightly clenched his fists, feeling as if a seasoning box had been spilled in his heart, all kinds of flavors exploded, sour, salty, bitter, spicy, except that there was no sweetness.

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 269 First Life Part 1

Dazedly, Tao Mu knew that he had a dream. The dream unfolded with “Tao Mu” as the main viewpoint. However, everything that happened in the dream made Tao Mu feel both familiar and strange——what was familiar were the people, what was not familiar was the relationships between the people and the development of the plot in the dream.

“Tao Mu, why did you only come back now! Where are the boxed lunches? What time is it now? Hurry up! The whole crew is waiting for you! It’s been almost an hour. Why are you always so slow in everything you do?” In his field of vision, a dark and thin face appeared. Tao Mu had a good memory, and immediately recognized this person as the unit manager of the drama “Purple Cloud”.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

“Yes, I’m sorry.” Tao Mu heard his flustered apology——no, it wasn’t his own voice.

Tao Mu’s heart jumped, and he was horrified to find that this voice was very familiar: “I didn’t mean it. I was almost hit by car when I went to pick up the boxed lunches——”

“Aiya, don’t explain anymore. Hurry up and put the food down! Everyone is starving.” While talking, the unit manager snatched the thermos box from Tao Mu’s arms and put it on the table beside him. After opening it, he immediately became angry: “Why is it only this? And why is this boxed lunch spilled? Tao Mu, what’s the matter with you? The boxed lunches are spilled like this, how do you have everyone eat this?”

“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it.” Tao Mu cried and apologized: “I was almost hit by a car when I came back——”

“If you were hit by someone, go to the person who hit you! Now I ask you, after making the boxed lunches like this, how will everyone eat it?” The unit manager cursed angrily: “Tao Mu, are you deliberately trying to make things difficult for me? You can’t even do such a small thing well, what else can you do——”

Before he could finish speaking, he suddenly heard an arrogant and rapid braking sound behind him. Everyone turned their heads and saw a red supercar parked by the side of the road. The car door opened, and a young man with hair dyed blond and wearing a three-piece dark purple suit stepped down. Taking off his sunglasses, he casually asked, “Where is Second Young Master Shen?”

The unit manager didn’t have time to question “Tao Mu”, and immediately moved over to apologize and said with a smile: “Mr. Yao, you are here. Second Young Master Shen has just finished a scene and is resting in his private lounge.”

Tao Mu’s pupils dilated, recognizing that this person was Yao Wenxiao. So the current plot development was that Yao Wenxiao came to visit the film set for Shen Yu?

But why was he dreamimg about these things?

Tao Mu was just thinking about it, when “Tao Mu” in the dream suddenly became excited, pointing at the arrogant Yao Wenxiao and said excitedly: “It’s him! It’s him who almost hit me just now. Only then did I spill the boxed lunches.”

“Who are you!” Yao Wenxiao raised a thick eyebrow, and glared at “Tao Mu”, full of hostility: “You can eat indiscriminately, but you can’t talk indiscriminately. When did I hit you? Hey kid, don’t try to scam me, aren’t you a little too tender?”

“I’m not!” “Tao Mu” had a wronged expression on his face, and he almost cried, “It’s clearly you who drove too fast just now and almost hit me when turning. It was because of you that I fell…..I recognize this car!”

“Hey! You’re still not done, are you?” Yao Wenxiao grabbed “Tao Mu” by the collar angrily, and was about to speak when he was interrupted by a voice from behind.

“Yao Wenxiao!”

Yao Wenxiao, who was originally arrogant and domineering, heard his name being shouted in a voice full of warnings, and immediately let go of “Tao Mu” sheepishly. He smiled ungratiatingly at the direction the voice came from: “Shen Er, you came?”

Tao Mu followed the source of the sound and saw a figure walking towards him surrounded by seven or eight assistants. When the person walked into view, Tao Mu was stunned!

How was this possible?!

Tao Mu was shocked to see that the person Yao Wenxiao called “Shen Er” actually had a face exactly like his. No, it should be said that this “Shen Er” turned out to be him——Shen Yu actually had Tao Mu’s face and turned into Tao Mu’s appearance?

Clearly aware that he was dreaming, but he didn’t know why he had such a dream, Tao Mu was suddenly dumbfounded.

In the dream, the plot was still going on.

“What’s the matter with you?” Shen Yu raised his eyebrows, and asked impatiently, “Who are you in conflict with this time?”

“You can’t blame me this time!” Yao Wenxiao snorted embarrassingly, and squinted at “Tao Mu” who stood next to him aggrieved and indignant: “He insisted that I bumped him with my car. Say, it is broad daylight, I’m not drunk, wouldn’t I know if I hit someone with my car?”

Shen Yu still frowned, his dark eyes moved slightly, and fell on “Tao Mu”.

“Tao Mu” straightened his back subconsciously, and said, “He really almost hit me. He drove too fast when he turned the corner, and knocked me down all at once. So even the boxed lunches were spilled.”

“Hey you kid——” Yao Wenxiao rolled up his sleeves and scolded, “You insist on biting me and not letting me go, are you?”

“Okay!” Shen Yu was already hungry after filming all morning. After waiting in the lounge for a long time, his boxed lunch was still not delivered. He sent his assistant out to inquire, and heard that Yao Wenxiao came to visit his film set, only to get in a quarrel with the assistant who delivered the boxed lunches. So Shen Yu got impatient and simply came out by himself. But he didn’t come here to break the lawsuit for these two people.

“Call your restaurant!” Shen Yu’s face was dark, and he ordered angrily: “Hurry up and send a batch of boxed lunches over.”

Yao Wenxiao thought that Shen Yu was taking the side of this nonsensical little assistant in front of him, and immediately became anxious: “No! Why? I didn’t bump into him!”

“I don’t care if you hit him or not. I’m almost starving to death!” Shen Yu glared at Yao Wenxiao angrily, and gestured at the set with his chin: “Look at how hungry everyone is? I hung on the wire all morning. In the afternoon there are still more scenes to film. Yet you still stand here and waste time with him. Do you want to starve me to death?”

“Besides, you came here under the pretense of visiting me, yet you didn’t even bring a cup of milk tea, and you even clipped our film crew’s boxed lunch assistant. Am I wrong to ask you to pay for a meal?”

“What’s the matter, do you still want this little assistant to repay the crew a meal?” Shen Yu said, sweeping Tao Mu with his long and narrow phoenix eyes, and said lightly, “Do I need to remind you how much he earns a month?”

Yao Wenxiao was speechless after being lectured, and like a husky that fell into the water, he complained with a whine: “I can’t say no to you, you only know to bully me! You knew how to bully me since you were a child! Do rich people have no human rights? So it’s always our fault once we get in a conflict with the poor?”

“Shen Er, you are too biased!”

Yao Wenxiao complained with his mouth, but his hands didn’t stop. He took out his mobile phone and called the manager of his restaurant’s branch in H Town, asking him to quickly make a few tables and deliver them over. Every dish was Tao Mu’s favorite.

During this period, Tao Mu was also adding his two cents on the side. This dish would not add onion and that dish would not add garlic. He even listed in detail which dish to add a certain number of spoonfuls of sugar and which dish to stew for a certain amount of minutes. In the end, he still did not forget to tell: “Have the master chef cook personally, I will not eat the food cooked by the little apprentices.”

Yao Wenxiao rolled his eyes: “Got it! As if you still need to say this.”

He complained again: “It’s just my bad luck. I came to visit your set, and I have to pick up the tab for a few meals.”

Shen Yu squinted at Yao Wenxiao: “Do you want me to wire you the money?”

Yao Wenxiao hurriedly apologized and said, “No, no, you eat, order whatever you want, if it’s not enough, keep adding more.”

Shen Yu snorted and said nothing more.

Seeing this, the unit manager who was standing at the side thanked him again and again: “Thank you, Mr. Yao, and thank you, Second Young Master Shen. If it weren’t for your help, the production crew would have had a hard time organizing the meal today.”

Each crew had a limited budget. A single meal cost at least a few thousand yuan. If Shen Yu and Yao Wenxiao didn’t take care of this matter, the unit manager and the assistant would have to pay for the meal. So the unit manager said this not only to compliment Shen Yu and Yao Wenxiao, he was also truly grateful.

When going out to work and earn a living, a few thousand yuan was no small matter. How many group extras in H Town earn less than 2,000 yuan a month! What was more, Yao Wenxiao was a wealthy young master with a generous hand, and the sum of the tables he ordered was at least 20,000 yuan. This was equivalent to giving the whole crew extra meals. So don’t even mention the unit manager, even the director and several other actors who rushed over after hearing the commotion thanked him repeatedly.

Only the other person involved stood there reluctantly, with a face full of class struggle.

Seeing this, the unit manager secretly poked “Tao Mu” in the back to let “Tao Mu” also hurry up to thank him.

However, “Tao Mu” just bit his lip and stood there indignantly, head raised and neck stiff. He felt he had done nothing wrong. It was Mr. Yao who was wrong. Why drive the car so fast, wasn’t it because he was relying on how much money his family has? What a big deal!

“It’s not my fault. He almost hit me in the first place!” “Tao Mu” didn’t take it seriously when he saw the direct and indirect hinting gestures from the unit manager, and spouted complaints.

“Hey you kid——” Yao Wenxiao felt uncomfortable when he saw “Tao Mu” like that. He was just about to roll up his sleeves and show his teeth, but the director standing on the side quickly said, “What’s the matter with this person? Don’t you even know to admit your mistakes? Who hired this person, fire him now!”

“That’s right!” Yao Wenxiao put his hands on his waist and lifted his chin, shouting to the sky: “Fire him——”

Before he could finish speaking, Shen Yu slapped him on the head.

“Enough! Towards a child, why are you quibbling with him?” Shen Yu pressed his stomach impatiently, his mood becoming worse because of hunger.

Seeing this, the director and several other actors standing by the side smiled and flattered him: “Second Young Master Shen is really kind and generous. Since you said that, then this matter…..”

As the director spoke, he looked at Yao Wenxiao again. After all, Yao Wenxiao was also an investor in this drama.

Yao Wenxiao covered the back of his head and sneered: “Who isn’t a precious baby here? Why can’t I quibble with him——”

Before finishing speaking, Yao Wenxiao received Shen Yu’s glare, and Yao Wenxiao could only keep silent, forcefully maintaining his respect: “Fine. Don’t quibble, don’t quibble. These days, doing good deeds must depend on the person, and I will treat this as a meal fed to the dog——”

Before he finished speaking, Shen Yu slapped his head once again: “How do you talk? Who are you feeding, who is a dog?”

Only then did Yao Wenxiao realize that his angry words just now were ambiguous, and immediately apologized with a smile: “No. I mean that this small assistant of your crew is a dog who bites the hand that feeds it, and doesn’t know good people. He is ungrateful, he is.”

Shen Yu didn’t bother to talk to him anymore. Clutching his stomach, he walked back to the lounge while surrounded by a large group of people. Yao Wenxiao ran along behind Shen Yu like a husky running in the wind. Not at all the arrogant and domineering attitude he had in front of “Tao Mu” just now.

The unit manager glared at “Tao Mu” who was standing there gloomily, and snorted coldly: “Why are you so incapable of doing anything? Let me tell you, it’s because you are so young and an orphan, which is quite pitiful that I let you in the crew as an assistant. But if you continue to be such a failure, and you make trouble for me, then you should piss off as far away as you can! I don’t want to be implicated by you. Do you hear me!”

“Tao Mu” was also full of grievances. He just felt that he had worked hard all day, but in the end he was almost hit by a car and then scolded, and was even almost kicked out of the crew. The only person who spoke for him also had such a condescending face, as if he didn’t take him seriously at all. Why? Why was it that everyone was about the same age, yet those people could do whatever they want with the help of their family background? Wasn’t it just because they were born with a golden spoon in their mouth, wasn’t it just because they were reincarnated into a good family?

“Tao Mu” was indignant and depressed. But he didn’t dare to offend the unit manager, so he could only nod aggrievedly. The unit manager didn’t want to see “Tao Mu”‘s gloomy face, so he waved his hand in disdain. Watching “Tao Mu” sobbing all the way into the bathroom with cold eyes, he shook his head involuntarily.

——When he first saw the child, he felt that the child was fair and pure. But as a result, after having more contact with him, he realized that this child was indeed pitiful, but the pitiful person must have something to be despised, and this old saying was absolutely true.

On the other side, “Tao Mu” who had sobbed in sadness all the way into the bathroom, now stood in front of the sink washing his face.

After experiencing that “people not matching” dream sequence just now, Tao Mu had already had some vague guesses in his heart. But when the dreaming Tao Mu saw “Tao Mu” with his own eyes in the mirror, as expected it was Shen Yu’s delicate and pitiful face, Tao Mu was still beyond shock.

What was going on?!

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Tao Mu, whose brain almost short-circuited, was thinking hard in his dream. Suddenly, he thought of the countless lives of reincarnation and revenge that Shen Chen had described to him. Shen Chen said that he had experienced so many reincarnations that he could no longer remember the sequence of each life, let alone why there were so many reincarnations. However——

Looking at the face of “Tao Mu” with the face of “Shen Yu” in the mirror, Tao Mu suddenly had a moment of enlightenment as if in a trance. Maybe everything he saw now was the real source of so many reincarnations!

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 268 Coma

“You changed the company’s name?” Shen Yu looked at Yao Wenxiao with a complicated expression.

When he was waiting for the notification at the front desk, Shen Yu noticed it. Yao Wenxiao changed Yuxiao Media to Wenxiao Media. Shen Yu originally thought that he wouldn’t care. However, when Shen Yu really saw all this, Shen Yu still felt sour in his heart. It was as if something had passed him by and never to return.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Yao Wenxiao looked at Shen Yu’s distraught and injured expression as if he had been greatly hurt, and found it quite interesting.

“And so?” Yao Wenxiao looked directly at Shen Yu, and asked calmly, “Do you think I shouldn’t have changed the company’s name?”

“That’s not what I meant.” Shen Yu subconsciously explained, “I’m just, a little sad.”

“Why are you sad?” Yao Wenxiao sneered. Originally, he wanted to say something, but when he saw Shen Yu’s face that always appeared innocent and pure and as if he didn’t know where he was wrong, he suddenly lost interest.

There were many people and many things that you couldn’t notice when you were deep in the situation, but once you jump out of the maze and watch with the attitude of a bystander, you would find many details that were completely different from your original impression.

For example, Yao Wenxiao had always felt that Shen Yu was a person who had no shrewdness or scheming. But in fact, Shen Yu was very deliberate even in speaking. Towards this expression of one hesitating to speak, if it was the silly Yao Wenxiao from before, he was afraid that he would come up with all kinds of conclusions himself. Yao Wenxiao couldn’t help but think back to those years, every time he saw Shen Yu put on such a face of being greatly wronged, he couldn’t wait to jump forward, accusing the other party of bullying Shen Yu indiscriminately, and even helping Shen Yu vent his anger without thinking like a complete idiot. Thinking of all of this he couldn’t help but think it was funny.

“You…..” Shen Yu looked at the sneering smile on Yao Wenxiao’s face, and suddenly felt a little flustered: “Don’t say that. I just think that we were so happy once, but now…..we can never go back. So I was a little emotional, a little sad.”

“Pfft!” Yao Wenxiao chuckled, but didn’t say anything, and instead asked, “You have never been one to show up for nothing. Tell me, what do you want me for?”

Shen Yu frowned. He felt that Yao Wenxiao’s attitude towards him was not as friendly as he imagined. Shen Yu hesitated a little, subconsciously bit his lip, ignoring this uncomfortable feeling. He went straight to the point: “Do you know that Tao Mu is the real second son of the Shen family?”

Yao Wenxiao raised his eyebrows: “What do you want to say?”

“You also know that the Shen family’s conditions are not as good as it used to be now that they have lost the Shen Group. My dad is sick and hospitalized, and he can’t even afford a caretaker. I just think that since Tao Mu is also a child of the Shen family, he has an obligation take care of——”

“Obligation?” Yao Wenxiao didn’t wait for Shen Yu to finish, and sneered out loud: “Putting aside whether or not Tao Mu is the flesh and blood of the Shen family. Do you even understand the law? Tao Mu already has adoptive parents, and his legal fathers are Liu Yao and Meng Qi. He has no obligation to the Shen family.”

“But Tao Mu is the blood of the Shen family after all——”

“So what?” Yao Wenxiao tilted his head and looked at Shen Yu: “Aren’t you also Yu Qingqing’s son? Yu Qingqing went to jail, and I don’t see you taking on the responsibilities of her child and go to the prison to visit her.”

“You——” Shen Yu was stunned speechless. He didn’t expect Yao Wenxiao to say such a thing, so he avoided answering: “This is different.”

“Then tell me, what’s the difference?” Yao Wenxiao rotated the pen around his fingers and asked with great interest.

“Yu Qingqing is sentenced for the crime of abandonment. She abandoned the real second son of the Shen family, and her husband even stabbed my elder brother. The two of them deserved to go to jail. If I go to visit her at this time, wouldn’t it hurt my father and elder brother? The Shen family has raised me for more than 20 years. I can’t repay them with much, but I can’t do something that would make them sad either.”

“But Tao Mu is different. Mom and Elder Sister, they really want to find their son and younger brother. What’s more, Dad is sick now. If Tao Mu can return to the Shen family at this time——”

“Then you can throw the burden of the Shen family to Tao Mu?” Yao Wenxiao interrupted Shen Yu. He leaned on the back of the chair and clapped his hands: “I really didn’t see it before, the Shen family had raised you for twenty years, and spent a lot of money and energy on you. Now you are only asked to take care of Shen Shiyuan in the hospital for a few days, yet you can’t even take it anymore?”

“I’m not!” Shen Yu clenched his fists and stomped his feet angrily with an aggrieved attitude of being wronged: “Yao Wenxiao, how can you think of me like this? Even if we are not friends now, we were once childhood friends. Can it be that in your mind, I am that awful of a person?”

“Am I wrong?” Yao Wenxiao spread his arms and shrugged his shoulders: “You don’t want to get rid of the burden of the Shen family, you just simply don’t like Tao Mu. When you see his happy life, you are unable to reconcile with it. So you want to pull Tao Mu into the quagmire of the Shen family? Have a complete stranger in the legal sense who has never lived with the Shen family support the old and the young of the Shen family?”

“But why do you think that an outsider who has never lived with the Shen family would be willing to shoulder the responsibility that you, the adopted son who has been doted on by the Shen family for twenty years, is not willing to shoulder?”

“I don’t——”

“Let me guess again,” Yao Wenxiao tapped on the table, and continued to analyze: “With Tao Mu’s personality, he obviously doesn’t want to recognize the Shen family. Back then, when the Shen family was well-off, he was still unwilling to recognize each other, let alone now when the Shen family is in straits. But you have to force Tao Mu to recognize the Shen family. So you came to me, probably because you want to use Wenxiao Media to guide public opinion and put pressure on Tao Mu?”

Yao Wenxiao hooked up the corners of his mouth in amusement: “Shen Yu, why didn’t I find out before, that you actually have this kind of scheming?”

“I don’t!” After being exposed by Yao Wenxiao analysis by analysis, and even tossed these scheming thoughts out to bask in the sun, Shen Yu’s face turned green and then white, and he shook his head violently to refute: “I don’t think this, I just think that Dad is suffering now, if he can see his real son, he will be happier.”

Yao Wenxiao sneered: “You didn’t think so before.”

“Remember what you did when the Shen family ran to Hong Kong and wanted to recognize Tao Mu?” Yao Wenxiao deliberately pointed out: “You worked together with Lin Rong’an to forge a fake DNA test, and even ran to Hong Kong Airport to stop the Shen family only to be slapped by Mrs. Shen. It didn’t take long for this to happen, you wouldn’t happen to have forgotten, right?”

Yao Wenxiao ruthlessly tore off Shen Yu’s mask, making Shen Yu have to look directly at his naked greed and desire: “In the end, you just like the power and wealth of the Shen family. Once the Shen family can’t provide you with what you want and the living standards you want, you will treat the Shen family like a worn shoe. Just like you did to me.”

Yao Wenxiao said calmly: “From the beginning, what you cared about is not the familial relationship of the Shen family at all, just like what you cared about at the beginning was not the friendship between us at all. If this is the case, why do you still have to pretend so hard? It’s clearly simple greed, it’s just wanting to seek an identity, status, and life that doesn’t belong to you. Why do you use such beautiful words as kindness, innocence, love, and righteousness to disguise yourself? Are you not tired of living this way? Or, have you been pretending for so long that you even deceived yourself?”

Crack!

As if some persistence deep in his heart had been broken, Shen Yu could only feel a rush of blood rushing into his head, such that his whole body trembled involuntarily. He couldn’t help clenching his fists, stared at Yao Wenxiao with red eyes, and shouted in a voice full of resentment: “You are talking nonsense. You are talking nonsense. I am not such a person at all. Why do you slander me?”

Not right, not right, it was not like that. It shouldn’t be like this. Shen Yu was the second young master of the Shen family. He should be an innocent, pure, kind, affectionate and righteous son of a wealthy family. He should be loved and helped by all his family and friends, and he should always enjoy everyone’s dedication to him without a bottom line. Shen Yu was not wrong, why did Yao Wenxiao say that?

Shen Yu took a deep breath, and accused Yao Wenxiao with a face of accusation: “Yao Wenxiao, I thought we were still friends, you let me down too much!”

“Friends?” Yao Wenxiao raised his eyebrows: “I’m curious, Shen Yu, how do you define the concept of a friend? When my Yao family was betrayed by your Shen family, I didn’t blame you. I even helped you secretly to vent your anger and suppress those bullies. I even went to Hong Kong to celebrate your birthday. But how did you treat me back then?”

“Use me if you have need, and put me aside when you do not. Now you still have the face to accuse me that I don’t regard you as a friend.” Yao Wenxiao snorted softly: “Shen Yu, you have always wanted to compete with Tao Mu. But you, down to your core, are really much more lacking compared to Tao Mu.”

“Although Tao Mu is shrewd and ruthless, he would not scheme and manipulate those around him or his friends. Those who follow him would always gain greater benefits. Whether it is in terms of career or emotional support, they can all gain a great sense of satisfaction. That’s why more and more people gather around him. But you, who are full of high-sounding principles, only count on the people around you to give and make sacrifices. Once things don’t go your way, you will stand on the moral high ground to criticize. But when you ask others to give and give, have you ever thought about what you have done for others?”

The more Yao Wenxiao talked, the less interested he felt. Before, because of Shen Yu, he felt disdain for Tao Mu’s character. It wasn’t until Sheng’an Group got into a fight with Tao Mu, and his grandfather Yao Sheng’an was defeated by Tao Mu, that Yao Wenxiao began to face Tao Mu seriously.

Then he discovered that Tao Mu, as an opponent and enemy, could inspire hatred, but he could also make people sincerely convinced and willing to concede defeat. His grandfather was calculated by Tao Mu, and even though he lost the Sheng’an Group, he had been full of praise for Tao Mu in private. He felt that Tao Mu must be the most reassuring kind of person as a friend or business partner.

In contrast, Shen Yu was a person who you felt was worthless as an opponent and worthless as a friend.

So much so that Yao Wenxiao now found it unbelievable. How could he have once fallen in love with someone like Shen Yu in the first place?

Shen Yu grew up to be twenty years old, and before meeting Tao Mu, he had always been smooth sailing and attracting everyone’s attention. But since meeting Tao Mu, everything that belonged to him had changed. It was no exaggeration to say that Tao Mu had become Shen Yu’s heart demon, a thorn in his side. Shen Yu could accept anyone saying that he was not good, but absolutely could not bear anyone saying that he was not as good as Tao Mu.

“You’re talking nonsense!” Shen Yu burst into tears, and subconsciously grabbed the ornaments on the table and threw them at Yao Wenxiao: “How can Tao Mu be better than Shen Yu? Tao Mu is just an orphan that no one wants, even his biological parents think he is superfluous and abandoned him as a baby. He has deep scheming and his words are like honey hidden with razors. He should be trampled under others’ feet forever like a puddle of mud. What right does he have to be better than Shen Yu?”

“Are you crazy?” Yao Wenxiao didn’t expect Shen Yu to become violent while talking, and almost missed being hit by the flying ornaments. He quickly called the security guards to come in while dodging.

The security guards outside the door quickly brought Shen Yu under control. Yao Wenxiao was in a state of embarrassment, with a blood-red mark on his cheek. He angrily picked up another phone on the table: “Shen Chen, did you hear that? Your younger brother is crazy, come here and take him away!”

Shen Yu, who was still struggling and crying under the control of the security guards, stopped abruptly. He looked at Yao Wenxiao in disbelief.

Yao Wenxiao sneered and said, “Don’t pretend to be crazy with me. With this time and energy, you should think about how to explain this to the Shen family.”

“Shen Yu!” Yao Wenxiao licked his lips, and wiped the wound on his face with the back of his hand: “You just said something wrong. Although Tao Mu is an orphan, the one who was really abandoned by his parents was not him, but you. And the one who all family and friends love is also him, not you.”

“Fakes will always be fakes. Even if you stole the identity, status and life that should have belong to Tao Mu by chance, you are not him after all.”

One was a smart person who could climb up from the depths of the muddy swamp and strive to stand at the highest place even if he was as insignificant as dust; one was a stupid person who even though he clearly had a good family background, harmonious familial relationships, and a childhood friend who thought the world of him, still frittered away a good deck of cards. Although the two were both human beings, it was absolutely impossible for them to have the same ending even if they were forced into the same situation one day.

“Shen Yu, stop making trouble, and live your own life well. You will never be able to compare with him. And you don’t need to compare with him.”

Seeing that the two of them were once the best of friends after all, Yao Wenxiao couldn’t hold back and said these words anyway. It was also out of good intentions, for fear that Shen Yu would try to take on Tao Mu. With Tao Mu’s ruthless method of doing things, Shen Yu couldn’t beat him at all.

However, what Yao Wenxiao didn’t expect was that the moment he said these words, Shen Yu suddenly opened his eyes wide in fright.

At this moment, time seemed to stand still. Immediately after his vision went dark, Shen Yu seemed to hear the sound of glass breaking again. Shen Yu suddenly felt a sense of nausea. All the scenery rippled like lake water, then spun rapidly, and finally formed a vortex.

Shen Yu could only watch as pictures emerged one after another from the whirlpool.

“Shen Yu? Shen Yu?” Yao Wenxiao looked at Shen Yu, still held between two security guards, who suddenly passed out while struggling fiercely for no apparent reason.

He subconsciously raised the phone and reported to Shen Chen on the other end: “Your younger brother has passed out. It has nothing to do with me, I didn’t touch him.”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

“He’s not my younger brother!” Shen Chen frowned, and said coldly, “Send him to the hospital.”

At the same time, Tao Mu, who was seeing Li Xiaoheng off at the airport, also felt his vision go dark, and fell directly on Li Xiaoheng’s body.

Li Xiaoheng subconsciously caught the person in front of him, frightened out of his wits: “Xiao Mu!”

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 267 Single & Childhood Friend

As we all know, Li Xiaoheng was a workaholic. Moreover, he was a workaholic who had a very full work schedule and almost never rested on weekends. But this kind of character could actually visit all the film sets of the TV series filmed by Tao Mu in one go. It was conceivable how far the personal friendship between the two had reached.

Anyway, the entire crew of “Soldier Elite” knew the relationship between Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng tacitly because they had experienced the incident of Miss Qi from the hot spring resort coming to find fault half a year ago. In regards to envy and jealousy, of course there were some. After all, Tao Mu was young, and not only did he have capital and ability, but he could also could find a lover like Mr. Li, who was also young and talented, and also obeyed his words and put him first in his heart. This was simply a double success in both love and career, an absolute winner in life, alright?

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

But thinking about it carefully, the reason why Mr. Li cared so much about Tao Mu was also because the two were well-matched, and they were good partners in business. If it were someone else, very likely they wouldn’t get the same treatment from him.

After all, there were often little wives of domineering CEOs, but self-made, worth tens of billions, and good-looking business genius-type wives were not common! Not to mention Tao Mu’s current status and influence in the entertainment industry——especially Tao Mu’s ability to produce film and television dramas and shoot people into popularity and stardom. In the eyes of many male and female artists, it was no exaggeration to say that he was definitely a proper Tang Seng meat (TN: monk in Journey to the West, whose flesh had divine properties). If it wasn’t for Mr. Li’s impressive ability and background, which made those little demons dare not act rashly, Tao Mu’s phone would have been blown up long ago! To exaggerate a bit more, even the door of his hotel room would have been smashed down!

Many artists were secretly guessing in private, Mr. Li was probably worried about exactly this, so he took time out of his busy schedule to visit the film set, and announce his sovereignty every now and then.

“I wonder when Mr. Tao and Mr. Li are going to announce their relationship!” During the filming break, several actors gathered together, secretly watching the interaction between the aloof CEO and their little wife of the domineering CEO, while gossiping in low voices.

“I really admire Mr. Tao’s fortitude. When most people meet such a high-quality boyfriend, they probably couldn’t wait to make it public. It’s only Mr. Tao who could hold it for such a long time!”

“Our Mr. Tao is not an ordinary person either, okay?” Du Kang, one of Tao Mu’s three college roommates, protested as Tao Mu’s family member: “Our Tao Mu is so handsome, so young, and so rich. Is there even any difference between the two? Besides, Tao Mu is still an actor. You all know how much a public relationship in the entertainment industry will have an impact on an actor’s career. So I don’t think Tao Mu will make the relationship public any time soon.”

Tao Mu’s other two roommates also echoed with certainty: “That’s right! Anyway, our family’s Tao Mu is only 20 years old this year, so he is not in a rush at all, okay?”

“I don’t think so?” The actress before was very unconvinced, and pointed her chin in the direction of Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng: “I heard that Mr. Li stayed directly in Mr. Tao’s room last night. Both of them are already so open, isn’t it because they’re not afraid of fans knowing, and even want to make it public?”

“No way! Mr. Tao is only twenty years old this year. Why is he in such a hurry to reveal his relationship? Isn’t he afraid of losing fans?”

“He is a billionaire boss, so why would he be afraid of losing fans? Besides, so what if fans are lost? Will those fans uninstall FlyNews just because Mr. Tao announced his relationship?” Gu Yuzhang impatiently took over the topic.

All the actors looked at each other in blank dismay: This remark…..was sharp enough!

“Compared to this!” Gu Yuzhang continued: “I am more interested in another thing. The registered users of FlyNews.com will break through 200 million soon. Didn’t Mr. Tao say that he will sing to celebrate?”

“Yes, yes, I remember this!” Someone suddenly echoed: “It is also said that Cheng Yi will be the music producer of the single ED, right?”

“I remember it too. Cheng Yi also said Mr. Tao’s singing is amazing, and he praised Mr. Tao a lot!”

Having said that, everyone remembered. The several actors looked at each other. Tao Mu’s three roommates winked and smiled, got up and walked towards Tao Mu.

At the other end of the film set, Mr. Li obediently sat on the side, watching the makeup artist touch up Tao Mu’s makeup. The filming of “Soldier King” was coming to an end, and the last few scenes had to be filmed in remote mountains and old forests. After a long period of exposure to wind, sun, and rain, coupled with the skillful hands of the makeup artist, Tao Mu barely resembled the image of the boy who once had a ton of idol baggage after finishing his makeup. He was as rough as he could be.

But in the eyes of Mr. Li, who had a ten meters thick filter, their family’s Tao Mu was still a golden age beauty, and his pheromones were so bursting that it made people’s hearts thump uncontrollably.

The three roommates who approached noticed Li Xiaoheng’s overly focused gaze and couldn’t help rolling their eyes. The old father’s emotion that their cabbage was gouged by a pig surged in their hearts.

“Mu!” Wen Bao said with a smile, “The registered users of FlyNews.com will soon exceed 200 million. Didn’t you say you were going to sing to celebrate? Are you prepared?”

Du Kang also hurriedly interjected: “Speaking of which, everyone hasn’t heard you sing yet! Why not after we finish filming today, let’s go out to have dinner and sing karaoke to celebrate?”

Chu Sui’an glanced at Li Xiaoheng who was next to Tao Mu, and added: “Mr. Li came all the way, so it can be regarded as a welcome reception for him as well.”

Among so many people present, only Li Xiaoheng had heard Tao Mu’s singing with his own ears. Hearing Chu Sui’an’s proposal at this moment, he couldn’t hold back for a moment, and the corners of his eyes twitched slightly. But he didn’t say anything, and sat next to Tao Mu very shrewdly, waiting for Tao Mu’s reply.

Tao Mu had always been lugging around his heavy idol baggage for so many years, and habitually didn’t want to expose his shortcomings. After being reborn for so long, apart from revealing everything in front of Li Xiaoheng, when being with others, even the most trusted friends there was still a distance separated by an invisible layer. Basically just being friendly on the surface, trying to show everyone the best side of himself, and never losing his temper when his emotions got out of hand.

To describe this behavior in a good way, it was high emotional intelligence, which made people feel very comfortable getting along with him. That was why Tao Mu had only debuted for a few years, yet he had friends everywhere in the circle. This was not only because of Tao Mu’s net worth and capital, but also because of Tao Mu’s conduct in the adult world.

But to put it unpleasantly, this kind of person was too shrewd. People couldn’t figure him out. When encountering someone like Cheng Baodong who believed he was frank and outspoken, there would only be equal disdain with each other.

Anyway, in the eyes of his group of friends, Tao Mu was definitely a good friend with a high EQ that made people comfortable. Even if he was worth over tens of billions, he never out on the airs of a boss and an investor. So Tao Mu, who stuck himself with this layer of character image, was also very considerate towards his buddies!

So it was not a problem to treat everyone to eat and relax, but singing was another story. Before he found a million-dollar tuner, Tao Mu was not going to expose his shortcomings. But being reminded by his friends, Tao Mu also recalled this matter. So when work finished, he quickly called Cheng Yi and asked him to come to the mainland to help record an MV.

Cheng Yi refused on the spot: “Muzi, don’t mess with me. How are you simply just at the level of being saved by a million-dollar tuner? Even if you give me 10 million, I will still scratch my head!”

“Then I’ll give you 10 million!” Tao Mu made a final decision, and said with a grin: “Brother Cheng, give me some face. You promised me at the beginning. You can’t praise others as heaven and earth when caught in the passion of the moment, and then not even pay attention to me for ten million when the passion has cooled?”

Before Cheng Yi could speak, Tao Mu threatened jokingly: “I remember my sister-in-law is my fan, right? If you don’t promise me, I’ll call my sister-in-law. By the way, do you use washboards in Hong Kong? How about kneeling on keyboards?”

Cheng Yi: “…..”

The most popular king of pop in the Hong Kong music scene, the top tier music producer who was famous in the Chinese music scene, was well-known and loved for his maverick and unruly character. He once said that he would never tolerate musicians who just sing with their faces. He did not bow down to CEO Tao under the money offensive, only to kneel down under the threat of his wife.

Of course, the two were just joking. When Cheng Yi released his new album, Tao Mu personally shared and sincerely helped to promote it on FlyNews, even having FlyNews.com help make a homepage promotion. At a time when record sales in the Chinese music scene was declining day by day, he directly helped Cheng Yi achieve a sales volume of tens of millions. Making Cheng Yi, who was already at the level of a great god, climb to the top of the GOAT altar. Cheng Yi would remember and be grateful for this matter for the rest of his life.

So don’t mention that Tao Mu was just tone-deaf, even if Tao Mu could kill people with his singing, Cheng Yi would still record this single. And absolutely not accept a penny.

The news that Cheng Yi was going to help Tao Mu record a single to celebrate FlyNews.com breaking through 200 million registered users quickly spread. That man who stirred up a bloody storm everywhere he went lived up to expectations and hit the headlines once again. Once again managing to pull off “though this brother is filming in seclusion, the world is still full of legends about this brother”.

At the same time, Shen Yu, who was driven to his wits’ end by Shen Chen’s entrustment to take care of Shen Shiyuan in the hospital, also saw the news.

His heart was instantly full of mixed feelings.

Shen Yu couldn’t help but think of the scene when he and Tao Mu first met a few years ago. At that time, Tao Mu was still just a nobody extra serving him as a stand-in in the crew, and even the male number three with no background could easily bully him. While he was the second son of the Shen family who sat high on his pedestal, innocent and kind and liked by everyone.

It was a pity that the times have changed, and in just a few years, while the situation between him and Tao Mu was still so different. It was just that this time it was Tao Mu who was on top, and he had become so insignificant that he had to do the dirty work of a caretaker for others.

Speaking of which, Tao Mu was the real second son of the Shen family? Why was it that when the Shen family was down on its luck, Tao Mu could continue to be his big star CEO, but he, the adopted son, had to clean up poop and piss for a man who had no blood relationship to him?

Shen Yu didn’t think he felt disdain for such things, he just felt that since Tao Mu was the real son, he should fulfill his obligations as the son. Instead of avoiding far away after the decline of the Shen family, and living his good life leisurely.

After all, Tao Mu and the Shen family were the real family, weren’t they?

Thinking of this, Shen Yu’s heart skipped a beat. Uncontrollably, he went to Yao Wenxiao’s media company.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Yao Wenxiao, who was working, was dazed for a moment when he heard the notification from the front desk. Thinking of those past events again, it seemed as if a few lifetimes had passed.

Yao Wenxiao didn’t want to see this person at first. But after thinking about it, he let Shen Yu in.

He wanted to hear what this childhood friend who once caused him to fall in love madly but abandoned him like a used shoe after the decline of the Yao family would say to him now.

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 266 Cuts And Bruises All Over & Yunnan Baiyao

Though he said he had something to do, when Li Xiaoheng got off the plane, Tao Mu still came to pick him up at the airport himself. And it was not the previous mode of sneaking around in the parking lot waiting for him, but holding a pick-up sign and standing openly in public. Behind him were entertainment reporters and passers-by who were secretly taking pictures with their mobile phones.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

“So grand?” Li Xiaoheng was a little surprised, smiling reservedly to cover up the crashing waves in his heart, as well as the glee that was rippling all over his body no matter how he covered it up. He stretched out his arms and hugged Tao Mu——the most common kind of hug in social etiquette. Then, taking advantage of the gesture of hugging, whispered to Tao Mu: “I’m a little overwhelmed.”

The warm breath sprayed on Tao Mu’s earlobe, and the tip of Tao Mu’s ear turned slightly red. But on the face, he said solemnly: “It’s something I should do as the boyfriend.”

He also curled up the corners of his mouth at Li Xiaoheng, saying with a half-smile, “CEO Li took time out of his busy schedule to come here. To show my sincerity, I should at least come to receive CEO Li in person.”

Li Xiaoheng suppressed a smile, and said casually and politely: “You are too courteous.”

The group of media reporters guarding behind Tao Mu frantically took pictures. The clicking and flashing of the cameras were endless. Following behind his boss, Assistant Jiang’s eyelids twitched. He glanced at his boss who “claimed no need to come pick me up but the tail behind him was very honestly wagging like a propeller”, and then glanced at the unaware media reporters and a small group of fans with weird looks in their eyes, before pushing up his glasses expressionlessly.

Of course, Tao Mu didn’t notice the crazily swiping inner bullet screen of Assistant Jiang’s complaining. He took Li Xiaoheng’s suitcase and asked, “How long can you stay for?”

“Two days.” Li Xiaoheng responded with a smile. And these two days were time he only managed to squeeze out with difficulty. After signing off on the paperwork that had to be dealt with, the remaining items on the agenda would be discussed in video conferences.

Tao Mu also knew that Li Xiaoheng’s schedule was very full, and it had not been easy to spare two days. It was a pity that the filming of “Soldier Elite” had reached a very important stage, and Tao Mu, the leading actor and producer, couldn’t leave at all. So Li Xiaoheng could only be wronged——

“Would you like to visit the set?”

Li Xiaoheng raised his eyebrows, quickly calculated the route from the airport to the studio as well as the time issue, and asked: “You haven’t eaten dinner yet. Let’s get dinner first. Are you going to shoot a night scene tonight?”

Li Xiaoheng’s original plan was that if Tao Mu was filming a night scene, the two of them would go back to the set directly after dinner. If Tao Mu didn’t have any scenes tonight, the two of them would go back to the hotel and go to the set together tomorrow morning.

However, Li Xiaoheng took a look at the dark circles under Tao Mu’s eyes——in fact, it was not very obvious, because Tao Mu’s complexion was very dark now. But Li Xiaoheng still noticed it: “Didn’t sleep well recently?”

There were many people in the airport lobby, so Li Xiaoheng took out his mobile phone and sent Tao Mu a FlyNews message: [Don’t film tonight. Go back to the hotel directly after dinner, I won’t bother you.]

Tao Mu glanced at their family’s boss Li, bowed his head and replied to the message: [Then let’s go back to the hotel.]

After a pause, he sent another one: [Actually, I’m not afraid of you bothering me.]

The one who was teased wasn’t much affected, but the one who teased people first had red ears as he put the phone back in his pocket calmly. He followed Tao Mu in a trance all the way, until they were surrounded by fearless reporters. Only then did Li Xiaoheng finally realize that Tao Mu had no bodyguards or assistants, and he just came here alone!

“Mr. Tao, what stage is the filming of “Soldier Elite”? What interesting things happened on the set, can you reveal a bit?”

“Mr. Tao, this is your first time as a leading actor, what are your feelings?”

“What do you think the ratings of “Soldier Elite” should be after it airs? Will it exceed “The Great Wall of Flesh and Blood” and “Fashion Storm” you produced before?”

During this period, there were also caring shouts from the Ceramics——

“Mu Mu, Mu Mu, look this way. Aren’t you handsome today?”

“Mu Mu, you’re all tanned, the filming must have been hard, right?”

“Mu Mu, you have to take good care of yourself!”

Since childhood, Li Xiaoheng, who had always been the focus of the crowd, silently followed Tao Mu, watching Tao Mu be surrounded by a large group of people with great interest. Then he heard a girl asking excitedly: “Mr. Li, are you here in X City specially to visit Mu Mu?”

The airport lobby was full of people and extremely noisy, but after this question that could not be considered to have been too loud sounded, the surrounding entertainment reporters and fans all fell silent for an instant. Then they stared at Li Xiaoheng’s face with burning eyes.

——In fact, they all wanted to ask this question. But as we all know, CEO Li of Xiaoheng Capital, the eldest son of the Li family in Beijing, had always been low-key and serious, sophisticated and introverted. He usually hated cameras and spotlights the most, and never accepted media interviews unless necessary. To be precise, Li Xiaoheng established Xiaoheng Capital for so many years, but he only accepted one interview with the Wall Street Journal when he shorted international crude oil. After returning to China for so long, apart from FlyNews.com, no other media could successfully interview Li Xiaoheng himself.

Due to this reason, the reporters did not quite dare to fire questions at him. But now that there was a real warrior asking that question for them, for the sake of sales, of course they all looked at Li Xiaoheng with wide eyes and open ears.

Li Xiaoheng was indeed a man who didn’t like standing in front of the camera very much. But when it came to Tao Mu, there were always exceptions.

He glanced at the girl with disheveled hair who was being squeezed around in the crowd, smiled slightly, and admitted, “I’m here to visit Mr. Tao.”

He spoke!

The group of reporters were energized immediately, and subconsciously rushed forward with their cameras and microphones in hand: “Mr. Li, are you here specially to visit Mr. Tao?”

“Mr. Li, what do you think of Mr. Tao’s acting skills? Do you watch Mr. Tao’s TV dramas in your spare time?”

“Mr. Li, are you interested in acting? If one day, Mr. Tao invites you to play a guest role in the crew, would you agree?”

“…..”

As expected of reporters in the entertainment gossip section, the questions they asked were all so novel and tricky. Li Xiaoheng answered the questions seriously at the beginning, but later he had to weigh his thoughts before doing so, afraid that if he said a wrong word, it would arouse the suspicion of these reporters. So in this state of nervousness, Mr. Li regained his aloof aura of a domineering CEO and even his answers to questions were very concise.

“Yes”, “Very good”, “Yes”…..All answers would not contain more than three words. The media reporters listening to the on-site interview were also sweating, wondering how they had offended the domineering CEO. Would it cause the consequences of “this reporter asked a bad question, I shall make their newspaper go bankrupt”!

Tao Mu stood by the side holding back laughs, watching their family’s boss Li answering strange gossip questions from various angles with a straight face and the demeanor of one answering reporters’ questions at an international financial summit. So handsome that he had cuts and bruises all over!

Tao Mu couldn’t hold back, took out his mobile phone to take a few photos on the spot, and uploaded them to his FlyNews.

It wasn’t until Li Xiaoheng got into the car with Tao Mu that he discovered the FlyNews post that Tao Mu had just updated. Looking at the netizen’s comments below, Li Xiaoheng couldn’t help but have the same question: “So handsome that I have cuts and bruises all over, what do you mean?”

“That is to say, the way you looked just now was bursting with aura and pheremones, and you were simply so handsome it pulled at my heart. At that time, I felt as if I was shot through the heart by Cupid with the arrow of love. Hence cuts and bruises all over!”

Tao Mu teased casually, but when Li Xiaoheng heard this, he was so happy that even the strands of his hair fluttered.

Such a beautiful explanation. Thinking about it in another way, their family’s boss Tao confessed to him in front of hundreds of millions of netizens!

Li Xiaoheng couldn’t help feeling flustered, and typed on his phone with both hands. However, after more than half an hour, Tao Mu had even driven the car to the hotel, yet Li Xiaoheng still didn’t send out the FlyNews that Li Xiaoheng wanted to @ Tao Mu.

Tao Mu had always been focused when driving, and he didn’t notice that Li Xiaoheng was fiddling with his mobile phone to send out a FlyNews message. He just thought Li Xiaoheng was busy with work. But after Tao Mu stopped the car, seeing Li Xiaoheng’s slightly conflicted expression, he instantly realized something. Li Xiaoheng was definitely not working when he was fiddling with his mobile phone just now. Because a Li Xiaoheng immersed in work would never show such an expression.

Tao Mu had to admit that the reason why he was attracted to Li Xiaoheng and wanted to do business with him back then was because in addition to the halo bonus added to Li Xiaoheng by the memory of his previous life, there was also the most important reason, which was Li Xiaoheng’s work ethic. That kind of sharp-edged self-confidence and strength simply made Tao Mu feel very secure. So much so that Tao Mu subconsciously felt that so long as Li Xiaoheng was by his side, there would be nothing he couldn’t do.

But now, the omnipotent CEO Li in his heart was actually troubled. Tao Mu curved up the corner of his mouth and couldn’t help asking: “What are you thinking?”

“I was thinking about how to reply to your FlyNews.” Li Xiaoheng said frankly, shaking his phone at Tao Mu.

Tao Mu chuckled and stretched out his hand: “I’ll do it.”

Hearing this, Li Xiaoheng put his mobile phone in Tao Mu’s hand. Tao Mu took the phone and poked it a few times, then returned the phone to Li Xiaoheng.

Li Xiaoheng looked down, but saw that his account shared and liked the FlyNews post Tao Mu just sent, but he didn’t write anything.

Li Xiaoheng: “?”

Tao Mu just smiled and said nothing. However, the netizens under the two FlyNews have already fried the pot.

“Damn, what is going on here? I’m not good at Chinese, can you actually describe a handsome person with the phrase “full of cuts and bruises”?”

“What kind of enmity and hatred is this? Are you sure Tao Mu and Mr. Li are really good friends? Isn’t this description too weird?”

“Is there plastic brotherhood among capitalists as there are in the entertainment industry?”

“The sister upstairs is too naive. It’s the capital circle that has a lot of plastic relationships?”

“Am I the only one who thinks that Tao Mu’s description of CEO Li is very appropriate? Wuwuwu, I also feel that I am all cut up and bruised by CEO Li’s handsomeness.”

“Upstairs +1, I can also understand this feeling of being cut and bruised. I feel as if I have been shot by Cupid’s arrow, a thousand arrows through the heart by CEO Li’ handsomeness.”

“So CEO Li reposting the FlyNews without comment, is this a case of silence being better than sound at this time?”

“I have already made up a 100,000-word story!”

“The CP dog upstairs piss off!”

“…..”

Tao Mu shook his phone triumphantly at Li Xiaoheng: “Look. Netizens are all geniuses in reading comprehension.”

Seeing Tao Mu’s triumphant look, Li Xiaoheng couldn’t help but smile.

Then, with a flash of inspiration, he took out his phone and sent a supplement post.

Tao Mu’s phone received the alert, he picked up the phone, unlocked the screen and clicked on FlyNews’s homepage. Then he saw that Li Xiaoheng updated a new message, which was still reposting Tao Mu’s “so handsome that I am cut and bruised all over” FlyNews, but also attached a picture.

A picture of the packaging of Yunnan Baiyao. (TN: Chinese medicine for cuts and bruises)

This time it was Tao Mu’s turn to “?”

Even Tao Mu, who had a high EQ, and was good at reading people’s hearts, didn’t understand the meaning of Li Xiaoheng’s operation. He could only ask with a confused face: “What does this mean?”

“If you are cut and bruised by my handsomeness, then I am your Yunnan Baiyao.” Li Xiaoheng smiled warmly.

Recalling the explanation he just said to Li Xiaoheng “so handsome that a thousand arrows pierced his heart”, Tao Mu: “…..”

So what the hell kind of horrible logic was this? (╯‵ ′)╯︵┻━┻

“Your sweet talk is too lame!” Tao Mu couldn’t help complaining: “This is not even just dirt crumbs, but soil dug directly from the tomb!” (TN: dirt=slang for unsophisticated/lame, like a country bumpkin with still dirt clinging to the bottom of their pants)

Before Tao Mu finished speaking, Li Xiaoheng smiled and said, “You’re right. Isn’t it just a complaint dug out of my Mu Mu’s mouth.”

As Li Xiaoheng said, he suddenly leaned over and kissed Tao Mu like a chicken pecking at rice: “It is said that the soil also has a smell. Let me taste it, what does your complaint taste like?” (TN: word for complaint is a homonym for dirt/soil)

“Salt and pepper pork ribs!” Li Xiaoheng smiled, and put the peeled shrimps into Tao Mu’s bowl: “Eat some more.”

“Eat my foot, I’m already so full from anger!” Tao Mu snorted angrily, and said with difficulty, “Now even if you are a Yunnan Baiyao spirit cultivated into a human, you still can’t make up for my wounded heart.”

Tao Mu was simply in disbelief. When their family’s Mr. Li spoke seriously, those words were much more pleasing than any sweet talk. But why was it that when he was being asked to show PDA now, he could show off a picture of Yunnan Baiyao?

The turn in thinking was so big, no matter how imaginative the brains of netizens were, they couldn’t see it, right?

Tao Mu couldn’t believe that the first show of PDA between the two of them would end in failure.

Seeing Tao Mu’s indignant and aggrieved appearance, Li Xiaoheng chuckled. Of course he couldn’t tell Tao Mu that he did it on purpose. Because Li Xiaoheng was worried that the reason why Tao Mu had such a big change in attitude was because he was stimulated by Shen Chen’s words.

People might act impulsively when they were stimulated. Although Li Xiaoheng was very happy that Tao Mu finally wanted to give him official status, Li Xiaoheng was even more worried that Tao Mu’s decision was just because of impulsiveness, and he would regret it when he calmed down.

It was related to Tao Mu’s future career plan, and Li Xiaoheng didn’t want Tao Mu to have the possibility of regretting it. So he temporarily suppressed Tao Mu’s excitement, and wait at least one night. If Tao Mu still had no regrets when he woke up tomorrow morning, no matter whether Tao Mu wanted to disclose his relationship or anything else, Li Xiaoheng would fully support it.

Li Xiaoheng did not express these concerns directly. He was by Tao Mu’s side, and he was not the kind of man who would spoil the mood. And after Tao Mu calmed down, he also realized Li Xiaoheng’s deeper meaning.

His heart instantly felt a little swollen.

“Why are you…..” Tao Mu felt a lump in his throat. Their family’s boss Li was truly, no matter what the situation was, he could always maintain absolute calm.

“Don’t think too much.” Li Xiaoheng took off his gloves, squeezed Tao Mu’s palm, and persuaded in a gentle voice: “You are very tired. Take a good rest tonight, and we can talk about anything tomorrow morning.”

Then Li Xiaoheng really fulfilled his promise, and he didn’t bother Tao Mu when they returned to the hotel that night. The two of them showered and dried their hair and went straight to bed. Although Xiao Li’s little brother was energetic all night, Li Xiaoheng just lay with his arms around Tao Mu who was huddled in his embrace, and lay still and quiet all night.

It wasn’t until the next morning after Tao Mu got up, took a shower, and finished his breakfast that he absolutely woke up. He held his chopsticks and said, “Let’s make it public.”

Li Xiaoheng’s heart was finally reassured, and he responded warmly: “Okay.”

Although it was decided to make the relationship public, the actual operation obviously should not be so hasty. Not to mention the identities of Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng, but also FlyNews and Xiaoheng Capital represented by the two. Just take Tao Mu’s career as an actor for example, counting all the people in the domestic entertainment industry, there were almost no artists who were busy announcing their relationship just after turning 20.

It was not even the legal age for marriage!

Meng Qi, who learned about this from the phone, was about to explode. He didn’t understand what kind of drug their young Tao Mu was given by Li Xiaoheng that turtle grandson, so that he would agree to such an outrageous request.

“It has nothing to do with Li Xiaoheng, I want to make it public.” Tao Mu explained for Li Xiaoheng. Of course he couldn’t mention the absurd truth of reincarnation to his Xiao Qi Dad. Firstly, he was afraid that Meng Qi would not understand, and secondly, he was afraid that Meng Qi would be worried. So he simply found other reasons: “I just think it’s unnecessary to be so secretive all day long. It’s not illegal to fall in love——”

“It’s not against the law. But have you thought about it for your fans, work team, and work partners?”

Meng Qi said unceremoniously: “That’s right, although the country has passed the “Same-Sex Marriage Law”, homosexuality is still a minority in the whole society. As the founder of FlyNews.com worth tens of billions, have you ever thought about what impact it would have on your acting career and FlyNews.com after you announce your sexual orientation?”

“Don’t forget that you are now cooperating with the military to film a military recruitment drama! Once you announce your sexual orientation and relationship at this time, would it have a negative impact on the ratings and reputation of “Soldier King”?”

An actor’s public love affair could never be regarded as a personal behavior. Instead, they had to take into account the entire team, and even all the interests attached to the actor.

“I’ve considered all of these.” Tao Mu said in a gentle voice, “It’s because I thought about it too much before, so I don’t want to think about it now.”

Hearing Tao Mu’s abnormal tone, Meng Qi raised his eyebrows: “Is there any other reason?”

“I just feel that life is too short. Instead of constantly chasing an uncertain future and unattainable benefits, it is better to cherish the present.” Tao Mu paused, and then said: “And I don’t mean to disclose the relationship right away. “Soldier Elite” will be finalized in one month. I have already discussed with the national channel and decided to directly set the golden slot time during the National Day. My team also needs to do a good job in preparing public relations for when the relationship goes public. Everything should be ready in half a year, right?”

There was no one who knew the son like the father. Of course, Meng Qi could hear Tao Mu’s firm determination from Tao Mu’s overly gentle voice. He sighed slightly, and asked, “Is this necessary? With your and Li Xiaoheng’s identities, as long as the two of you don’t take the initiative to make it public, no one will dare to disclose this matter.”

“Isn’t it good to just keep the status quo? You’re still so young, even when you’re thirty, it would not be too late to announce your relationship.”

“But in that case, it would be too unfair to Li Xiaoheng.” Tao Mu sighed softly, “Xiao Qi Dad, I don’t want to let him down.”

Meng Qi sighed slightly, he could understand Tao Mu’s thoughts. He was also reluctant to blame his own child, so he could only agree with him irritably: “That’s right. That kid has good conditions, and there is nothing shameful about him.”

In the final analysis, it was nothing more than two young people meeting the right person at the right time and falling in love. Their family’s Tao Mu didn’t rely on being a single idol to make a living. As the most prosperous investor and producer in the domestic entertainment industry, he wouldn’t be unable to receive good scripts if he made his relationship public. And there was no endorsement contract on his back. If you thought about it carefully, even if it was made public, it would have no real impact.

At most, it would be just a few words from irrelevant netizens! As for whether it would affect the box office and ratings which everyone was worried about——it hadn’t happened yet, so there was no reason to be so negative. Besides, there were many superstars in the entertainment industry who married and had children, and you don’t see anyone who stopping filming or working once they get married. Weren’t they still winning awards and box office ratings?

Compared with these actors with little foundation, their family Tao Mu already had a lot of capital and confidence!

What was more, the two children have even met both side’s family, so it would be unreasonable not to give them official status.

Thinking about it this way, Meng Qi came to terms with himself.

“You guys can do whatever you want!” The Chinese cabbage that had been raised for so many years had finally been eaten by a pig. Meng Qi, the father, couldn’t help but feel sour in his heart, but he still gave advice: “But before it is officially announced, you should also pay attention. Don’t cause any unexpected mishaps. At least wait for the two public relations teams to come up with a specific response plan.”

“En!” Tao Mu nodded in agreement. After putting down the phone, he tickled Li Xiaoheng’s chin, who was sitting behind him, with his arms wrapped around him, and said with a smile: “My dad agrees!”

The newly human formed Yunnan Baiyao spirit simply put his chin on Tao Mu’s shoulder, and asked with a smile, “Then can I upgrade from Yunnan Baiyao spirit to Plaster spirit in the future?”

Tao Mu didn’t understand, and subconsciously asked, “What do you mean?”

Li Xiaoheng chuckled, leaned into Tao Mu’s ear, and teased in a low voice: “From taking it internally to using it externally.”

Thinking of something, Tao Mu blushed, and elbowed Li Xiaoheng’s chest. Getting up he said: “Hurry up, we have to hurry up and go to the set!”

Li Xiaoheng looked at Tao Mu’s flustered back, and curled his lips upwards.

Compared with Tao Mu and Li Xiaoheng’s happiness and warmth, Shen Yu on the other side was not so lucky.

Shen Chen was a person with very strong execution ability. As Tao Mu said, even if just to test Shen Yu, to verify whether the reincarnation of many lives was really meaningful or not, Shen Chen also felt that he had to follow Tao Mu’s suggestion.

So after returning to Shanghai, Shen Chen called Shen Yu and told him go to the hospital to take care of the sick Shen Shiyuan.

It had to be said that even though Shen Shiyuan’s original intention for Shen Yu should be criticized, but only in terms of behavior, Shen Shiyuan did not mistreat Shen Yu. In fact, because of Shen Yu’s usefulness, Shen Shiyuan even treated Shen Yu even better than his own daughter.

So when Shen Yu received the call, he was also very happy. He really wanted to take care of Shen Shiyuan and ease his relationship with the Shen family. It would be even better to restore the harmonious and warm atmosphere they once had.

However, what Shen Yu didn’t expect was that when he arrived at the hospital, the most dire scene he faced was not the sarcasm and extreme difficulties that he imagined Mrs. Shen and Shen Yan would direct at him. In fact, because they had received Shen Chen’s instructions in advance, although Mrs. Shen and Shen Yan disliked Shen Yu, they did not make things too difficult. They just ignored him, as if there was no such person in the room.

What really made Shen Yu feel embarrassed and disgusted was that Shen Chen actually ordered him to spill out Shen Shiyuan’s excrement and urine, and do those dirty things that only a caretaker would do.

Shen Yu was pampered and raised by the Shen family since he was a child, and he never even washed the dishes. How could he bear this kind of thing? He was too disgusted, so he suggested to Shen Chen to find a caretaker. But Shen Chen refused.

“The Shen family has been kicked out of the management of the Shen Group. I also spent a lot of money to release Mom on bail. Now we don’t have much money.” When Shen Chen said this, he did not forget to remind Shen Yu, saying meaningfully: “There is also Yu Qingqing’s son, who can be regarded as your younger brother.”

“Yu Qingqing and her husband are both in jail. There is only their son left outside. Although this person is not the responsibility of the Shen family, Mom hired hoodlums to injure him, and the child suffered a moderate concussion and was in a coma for many days in the hospital. After finally waking up, it was only to both parents being in prison. This child is quite pitiful. After all, he is your younger brother, so the Shen family is now paying the child’s tuition and living expenses.”

Shen Yu pursed his lips, and asked hesitantly: “So, the Shen family has no money?”

“It will get better.” Shen Chen didn’t answer Shen Yu’s question, but just patted him on the shoulder: “Persist a little longer, it will be fine when I find a job.”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Shen Yu didn’t say anything. When he returned to the house Zhuo Yan rented for him that night, he asked to borrow money from Zhuo Yan. He wanted to hire a good caretaker for Shen Shiyuan.

Zhuo Yan sneered when he heard the words: “Although the Shen family was kicked out of the Shen Group by me, they still own 26% of the shares of the Shen Group and 20% of the shares of the Qi Group from the exchange of shares back then. So the Shen family is not short of money. Your elder brother wouldn’t happen to be deliberately tormenting you, right?”

Shen Yu was stunned when he heard this.

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 265 PDA & Official Status

At this point in the conversation, it seemed that there was nothing left to say.

Shen Chen’s face, which just now could still show some emotion, gradually returned to the expressionless face that Tao Mu was most familiar with. He glanced at Tao Mu silently before getting up and leaving.

Before leaving, Tao Mu suddenly asked from behind him: “When did you recall the memories of so many lives?”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Shen Chen paused slightly, turned sideways, and told the time. Then he saw that Tao Mu’s expression was slightly startled, and then as if he had thought of something, a thin layer of blush spread from the tips of his ears down to his neck. The sadness and gloom in his eyes was diluted by a bright emotion, and his whole person looked much more lively.

This kind of Tao Mu had never appeared in Shen Chen’s memory. In Shen Chen’s memory, Tao Mu was only full of all kinds of bitterness and hatred. The hostility in his eyes was like the snow on the top of Mount Everest, which could not be melted even by the hot sun.

Shen Chen silently sighed in his heart, he was a little bit emotional for a moment, suddenly realizing that perhaps Tao Mu had never been really happy in so many reincarnations. Was it because he had never been fully recognized by the Shen family in so many lives?

Shen Chen was a little curious. But in fact, the result was not important anymore. Shen Chen felt that, at least in this life, Tao Mu had truly let go.

Tao Mu didn’t notice Shen Chen’s curious pondering, he just recalled the time Shen Chen said——it actually turned out to be the first time he and Li Xiaoheng hai hai. Tao Mu thought back carefully, at that time he had just received a call from the reborn Shen Chen, and while his mood was shaken, he subconsciously called Li Xiaoheng. Li Xiaoheng immediately flew over from Beijing that night. The two chatted in the hotel for most of the night, and the rest came naturally.

According to Shen Chen, he basically remembered the memories of so many lives when he was dreaming in the second half of the night. If he deduced it carefully, wasn’t that the time when he and Li Xiaoheng became one for the first time?

Then connecting it to what Shen Chen said about Li Xiaoheng being an exception, a character who had never appeared in so many reincarnations, and that Li Xiaoheng was not influenced by Shen Yu at all back then, which directly caused Tao Mu to keep a photo of Li Xiaoheng to ward off evil spirits when filming, and add to the fact that after Shen Yu met Li Xiaoheng, the plot halo became more and more useless…..

Tao Mu had some vague realizations. Perhaps the one who could really break the halo was not himself who felt he had finally given up his obsession with the Shen family, but Li Xiaoheng who had never been influenced by Shen Yu——to be precise, the Li Xiaoheng who was not affected by the plot halo.

But how to explain Li Xiaoheng suddenly appearing in his life?

After talking with Shen Chen, Tao Mu, who felt that the amount of information was so overwhelming that his mind was short-circuited, subconsciously sent a video call to Li Xiaoheng.

After the other side connected, and he looked at Li Xiaoheng’s sharp-edged and overly handsome face, Tao Mu suddenly realized that he didn’t know how to speak.

Why did he always encounter this kind of thing that was even more bizarre than the plot events of a TV series? As if rebirth once was not enough, you have to keep reincarnating, and the people around you may be turned into one dimensional characters if you were not careful. Would Li Xiaoheng really believe this kind of weird thing?

Very clearly, Li Xiaoheng was still willing to believe it. In other words, Li Xiaoheng was willing to believe every word Tao Mu said.

“You’re not the kind of person who would be bored enough to make up lies to deceive people.” In the video, Li Xiaoheng smiled at Tao Mu and said in a gentle voice, “Don’t worry. It doesn’t matter what the worldview you have experienced before was like. I am here, at least in this life, and I will never let you down.”

From Tao Mu’s slightly chaotic description, Li Xiaoheng analyzed and concluded that the reason why Tao Mu continued to reincarnate was because he couldn’t satisfy his heart’s wish in every life.

Because his life’s wish could not be satisfied, an obsession formed, and because of the obsession, he kept reincarnating.

Li Xiaoheng was just an ordinary person, there was no way for him to guarantee too much. But the only thing he could be sure of was that at least in this life, he would be by Tao Mu’s side. He would make sure that Tao Mu would be safe and happy, and died naturally of old age.

“Do you need me to accompany you?” Li Xiaoheng put the completed documents aside and asked with a smile.

Tao Mu hesitated for a moment, although he really wanted Li Xiaoheng to appear by his side immediately. But reason told him that Li Xiaoheng also had his own job. Especially after Tao Mu handed over the coded notebook to Li Xiaoheng, in order to ensure its maximum benefit, Li Xiaoheng had been so busy in the past six months. So Tao Mu hesitated, and didn’t want to delay Li Xiaoheng’s work because of his own reasons!

Tao Mu didn’t want to give people the impression that he was very emotional and liked to trouble others whenever he had something going on! Especially when he just learned that he had been rejected by his blood relatives for so many lives.

Tao Mu was terrified. So subconsciously, he didn’t want Li Xiaoheng to feel that there was anything bad about him.

Thinking of this, Tao Mu subconsciously twitched up the corners of his mouth, tried his best to put on a smile, and said softly, “You’ve been quite busy recently. You don’t need to come here. I’m fine——”

A sigh interrupted Tao Mu’s words. Li Xiaoheng looked at Tao Mu helplessly, bent his fingers and knocked on the phone screen. The sound was heard in Tao Mu’s ears, as if it was knocking on his forehead.

“You have to say that you need me.” Li Xiaoheng’s smile remained unchanged, but for some reason there was a little bit of slyness in it: “You have to say that you need me, you hope I can fly to your side right away. Only then can I push all the work to Assistant Jiang with peace of mind.”

With that said, Li Xiaoheng glanced at Assistant Jiang who pushed the door open.

The expression of Assistant Jiang, who had just entered the boss’s office and was about to report on his work, turned dark: Boss, you have already so openly stated the reason for skipping work, do you still need someone to give you affirmation with peace of mind?

The slightly lowered voice carried a slight smile, so sexy that it made Tao Mu’s ears burn. Although he knew that Li Xiaoheng was teasing on purpose so that Tao Mu could let go of those bad things.

In fact, Tao Mu had never been interested in this kind of dog blood plotlines in idol dramas, and even sneered at it a little. After all, everyone was an adult, so there was no need for such frivolous tricks to make people happy. Moreover, Li Xiaoheng’s behavior was quite restrained, and it was far from the standard of idol drama dog blood.

But when he became the person who was tenderly coaxed, he felt like a chick who had just hatched and fell out of the nest, only to be held gently in the palm of a hand and had his wound blown on. The heart that was originally empty was suddenly filled.

The world was actually a big place. Apart from those unworthy people and things, there were many people worth pursuing and cherishing. If there were regrets in the past, then the correct approach was not to hold regrets, but to learn to let go and start again. On the long road of life, there would always be people who were truly compatible with you and whom you could travel together through ups and downs. If you were lucky enough to reach the end with them then that was naturally very good. But if you separate halfway, at least you have experienced many unseen scenery.

——Yeah, right!

Tao Mu found out that he really didn’t like chicken soup. No matter what others think, anyway, from Tao Mu’s point of view, he had been going around in circles for so many lives, and finally met a Li Xiaoheng. Of course, he must hug their family’s boss Li tightly like a drowning person hugging driftwood!

“You also know, right? I have special revenge skills!” Tao Mu said arrogantly and domineeringly at Li Xiaoheng in the video: “If you dare to cheat on me, dare to treat me badly. I will take you down with me, and then haunt you in every life!”

So your special experience could still be used here to threaten me?

Li Xiaoheng laughed when he heard this. But knowing that their family’s Tao Mu was able to joke about this kind of thing, he was truly relieved.

“Then what should I do?” Li Xiaoheng frowned, pretending to be distressed, and asked Tao Mu: “I want to treat you well in this life, and I also want you to haunt me in every life. Is there a way to have the best of both worlds?”

Assistant Jiang, who had just walked into the CEO’s office, did not hear the full conversation between Li Xiaoheng and Tao Mu. At this moment, he was listening without beginning and end, so he could only be expressionless. Who knew that the boss was this sappy after falling in love, or was it a special situation between their boss Li and Mr. Tao.

Clearly Tao Mu was also choked by Li Xiaoheng’s unexpected sweet talk. After being stunned for a long time, he managed to gather back his thoughts: “You are really…..”

Who said that their family’s boss Li was rigid, boring and dull? He was able to make such waves that one didn’t even need to paddle a boat!

Li Xiaoheng chuckled and waved at Assistant Jiang. Signaling Assistant Jiang to book a ticket for him.

Assistant Jiang felt very tired when he saw the boss so self-righteously about to skip work.

He very much missed the overtime madman who didn’t know what the sour smell of love was like!

On the other side of the video, Tao Mu finally found out that there was someone else in the office of their family’s boss Li. Recalling what Li Xiaoheng said just now, Tao Mu had an epiphany. It turned out that the sound just now wasn’t just the sound of Mr. Li knocking on the screen with his knuckle, but also the sound of Assistant Jiang knocking on the door.

“Why didn’t you tell me?” Tao Mu believed that Li Xiaoheng was a person who knew the importance of things, and would never let Assistant Jiang hear what he shouldn’t hear. But when he recalled how he just now uttered such a goosebump-inducing threat like no one else was in the room!

CEO Tao, who had at least a ton of idol baggage, suddenly withered. Covering half of his face with one paw, he couldn’t help howling: “My image!”

Li Xiaoheng chuckled, he still preferred to see their CEO Tao’s lively appearance!

And by the way, he could also show some PDA. Let everyone around them know that their family’s CEO Tao actually cared about him very much!

Tao Mu, who was ashamed of himself, obviously didn’t realize what kind of image he had in the mind of their family’s boss Li. As for Li Xiaoheng’s blatant PDA behavior, Tao Mu also quite liked it.

If Tao Mu was very rational before, even if he began dating Li Xiaoheng, he would not forget to weigh the pros and cons. But recently, to be precise, after the two of them became open and honest with each other, Tao Mu had become less cautious.

“When you come over, will you stay in my room directly, or should I open another room for you?” Tao Mu raised his head, his face turning red. Fortunately, he had been busy filming recently, and his skin had been darkened by two shades, so it didn’t look so obvious.

Li Xiaoheng gently traced Tao Mu’s eyebrows and outline, raised his eyebrows, and said without hesitation: “It’s better to open another room.”

Tao Mu had entered the filming crew, and the hotel was surrounded by entertainment reporters and celebrity fans waiting to find news or to meet their idols. Li Xiaoheng was not afraid of reporters seeing his whereabouts, anyway, his relationship with Tao Mu was already a well-known secret in the industry. Those reporters didn’t have the guts to break the news.

But celebrity fans or stalker fans were different. No matter how capable Li Xiaoheng was, he still could not control everyone. Considering Tao Mu’s career and image, it was better to be cautious about many things.

Of course Tao Mu could also understand Li Xiaoheng’s concerns. In fact, this used to be his concern. After all, he once requested that the two make it public when he graduated from university on the grounds of career needs. The implication was that before the age of 22, he didn’t want too many people to know their relationship.

Li Xiaoheng also agreed at that time. But when Tao Mu thought about it now, it was meaningless if there were too many scruples when dating. Just let them know! Anyway, the country had passed the “Same-Sex Marriage Law”. They were in a dating relationship that conformed to the laws and regulations of the country. Did they still need to hide it?

Thinking of this, Tao Mu said presumptuously: “That, uh, the filming crew’s budget is tight, and I don’t have the money to open another room for you. Just make do with it and stay with me!”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

After saying that, Tao Mu subconsciously coughed, scratched his eyebrows with his index finger, the tips of his ears going red: “I have something else to do, so we’ll talk later.”

After finishing speaking, Tao Mu hung up the phone furiously. Only CEO Li was left smiling dumbly at the pitch-black screen.

This, did this mean he was going to have official status?!
