After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 076 MV Styling

Tao Mu hung up the phone and suddenly felt his heart become clear and open. Even the overcast and snowy weather outside the window had somewhat of a hint of brilliance.

Regardless of whether it was a person or a situation, in fact, they were all afraid of comparison. In the same horrible situation, during the previous life all the people scorned and abandoned him, but in this life most of the netizens were able to treat the situation sensibly and differently, and all his family and friends stood by his side to help him speak out without hesitation. So his frame of mind naturally became immediately different.

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 therefore felt that even if he had been miserable in his previous life, it didn’t matter any longer——he had experienced the most sinister human heart, the worst situations. Living life again, so long as there were people who could give him a little kindness when he met trouble, for him, it was like the first rain after a long drought. Like a traveler who had walked in darkness for many years suddenly seeing a little light that could illuminate the whole world.

“Smelly brat, are you at ease now?” Liu Yao snorted coldly, and put his warm and thick palm on Tao Mu’s head and rubbed it vigorously, directly rubbing Tao Mu’s hair into a mess: “Look at you, hiding in the bed and crying cat urine for such a trivial matter. Is that really necessary?”

With a messy head, Tao Mu asked in a muffled voice, “Xiao Qi Dad, Yao Dad, why do you believe me so?”

Tao Mu stretched out his hand and scratched his head, still a little unsure and asked: “In case I am really like what those people said, I was born bad to my bones, I was jealous that those two people treated their own child better than me, so deliberately committed baby abuse?”

“That’s also the fault of thay couple first. What can a five-year-old child know? Just throwing you back to the orphanage when they got a biological son, anyone with a working brain should know that these two people are not in the right. It’s just that they didn’t show up before. After all, it happened more than ten years ago. I would look petty if I flipped the old accounts for no reason. But since they dare to show up and make trouble, if I don’t teach them a lesson, they  will really think that my people can be bullied casually!”

Liu Yao snorted heavily, already thinking about how to make a fuss about the couple sending Tao Mu back to the orphanage. Don’t know if it was feasible to sue those two people for abandonment.

Liu Yao rubbed his chin, and suddenly remembered something: “It was Guo Yaning who called you just now? That female celebrity? What did she want with you?”

“Oh. I promised to help her shoot the MV for the new album. She just called and asked me when I could start filming.”

Liu Yao smiled, his anger turning into joy: “Count her as having good vision for knowing that you know these bells and whistles best. Then you must help her take a good video. If someone can take the initiative to ask you to shoot the MV at this time, you can trust them. Don’t be affected by these bad things.”

Meng Qi also smiled and said: “It’s good to go help a friend to shoot a MV and change your mood. Don’t worry about the bad people and bad things. After all, as long as you are alive, you will meet all kinds of people. Instead of wasting time being angry with these shameless, heartless people, it’s better to find a way to make yourself happy. By the way, when are you going to help her shoot the MV, your Yao Dad and I will drop you off.”

Tao Mu was about to refuse, but Liu Yao interrupted: “It’s decided. You didn’t sleep all night last night, and now you’re barely on your feet. It will be bad if something happens  while you drive yourself.”

Tao Mu was instantly speechless. He could only laugh and say, “I made an appointment with her. Just this morning, I will first meet in her studio.”

So Liu Yao drove his Grand Cherokee, and the co-pilot was as usual sitting Meng Qi, with their precious son in the back, taking Tao Mu all the way to the lobby of Guo Yaning’s studio.

When Tao Mu got out of the car, Meng Qi rolled down the car window, stuck his head out of the window, and shouted to Tao Mu: “Go straight back to the orphanage in the evening, your Yao Dad and I will also go over to pick up Grandpa Song. We will meet up in the orphanage in the evening to make dumplings. Da Mao, Xiao Pang, Gou Rixin and your friends from H Town will also be there. You can see if you want to call anyone else. Dean Tao said that the more the merrier.”

Tao Mu immediately understood why everyone did this. Nodding again and again: “…..I will definitely go back on time.”

Liu Yao and Meng Qi sat in the car and kept watch as Tao Mu entered the building. Liu Yao said in a deep voice, “That couple hadn’t been heard from for so many years. Suddenly jumping out at this juncture, it couldn’t be because of the Yao family’s money, could it?”

“Just ask someone to check it.” Meng Qi said, “If they really took bribe money, it will be easier to deal with.”

Tao Mu took the elevator directly to the top floor, Guo Yaning’s private studio.

Guo Yaning and her agent Zhou Fengxuan have been waiting in the VIP reception room for a long time.

Seeing Tao Mu coming in, Sister Xuan stood up and said with a smile, “Mr. Tao is really busy. We have been waiting so long the dishes have gone cold. You have finally taken the time in your busy schedule to come over, huh?”

Tao Mu heard this and said apologetically: “I’m really sorry, there have been too many things recently——”

“I’m joking.” Zhou Fengxuan chuckled before Tao Mu finished speaking, “I can see it. CEO Tao probably has the fire element in your fate, and therefore can make headlines and make a sensation at every turn. This luck is really impressive. It really makes one envious.”

Zhou Fengxuan pointed to Guo Yaning: “…..Every time, in order to get a headline, it costs me 1.8 million yuan. And this is not a guarantee that she will be in the headline. Even if she is in the headline, we can’t guarantee the effect of publicity. If our Ya Ning has even half the luck of CEO Tao, I will be able to wake up laughing.” Just how much money could be saved!

Tao Mu shook his head and smiled bitterly: “Sister Xuan, don’t tease me. I really don’t want to make headlines like this.”

“Isn’t it good if someone spends free money to let you make headlines?” Sister Xuan said seriously: “I want to persuade Mr. Tao, you have to think about it another way. This is obviously a slander of your reputation, but just a little maneuvering and it can have a good publicity effect. At that time, the more fiercely the netizens scold you, the more they will feel guilty after the truth is revealed. For us artists, such a large degree of attention and such a strong degree of discussion mean the same as real gold and silver. If Ya Ning was in your place, I would be so happy.”

Zhou Fengxuan was still the staunch supporter of the theory “I am not afraid of being scolded, I am afraid that no one is scolding”, “black red is also red, and red means making money”.

“As far as our Ya Ning is concerned, every time a new work is released, I have to spend money to win over two groups of reporters. One group praises Ya Ning while the other scolds her. When the heat gets up, then people will pay attention to her new movies or TV series.”

Zhou Fengxuan looked at Tao Mu with an expression of “you don’t even know your blessings”, and confessed to Tao Mu: “Same with Ya Ning releasing a new album in February. At first, no one paid attention. But didn’t Ya Ning ask Mr. Tao to help shoot the MV? Mr. Tao has been stirring up bloody wind and storms recently. You see, hasn’t the attention come up all at once?”

Zhou Fengxuan smiled and said, “This is the principle of one not having heat and therefore must rub off on other’s heat. So CEO Tao really doesn’t need to take it seriously. Now, how many of the people who praise you and those who scold you are really concerned about the matter itself? Most of them are just rubbing against the heat to increase their visibility. No more than three days, if there is more breaking news, they will definitely be chasing new hot spots. Who will still care about your old sesame seeds and rotten grains.”

It was just a five-year-old making a one-year-old cry. It was not like a five-year-old killed a one-year-old. If Zhou Fengxuan were to say something unkind, even if there was really hot news about a five-year-old kid killing a one-year-old kid, how many days would it even remain hot for?

Netizens were forgetful. They only cared about sensational news. Who had the time to ponder the old things that happened in everyday life?

A past event that Tao Mu was so concerned about was nothing more than a piece of conversation material for after-dinner talk in the eyes of others. Since it was a conversation topic, then like eating dinner and drinking alcohol, after digestion, it all turned into excrement to be flushed into the toilet the next day. Who could keep hold on it into the third day?

Although Zhou Fengxuan’s thoughts were a bit extreme, they successfully convinced Tao Mu.

Tao Mu nodded at Zhou Fengxuan, and said gratefully: “Thank you Sister Xuan for enlightening me, I have thought it through now.”

“Thank me for what. I just flapped my mouth. I’m a typical case of speaking while standing and not feeling a bit of pain at all.” Zhou Fengxuan said with a smile, “If I was in your place and was so judged by others and maliciously speculated by people who didn’t know me, having my nose pointed at while being scolded, I might be so angry that smoke will come out of my ears.”

“It’s good if Mr. Tao has brushed the matter aside. If you really want to thank me, then shoot a beautiful video for our Ya Ning. I have seen the video you shot of Ya Ning in H Town, it’s really great. I even have the heart to take that material to make Ya Ning’s MV.”

Guo Yaning, who had not spoken much, said with a smile: “Next, I will have to trouble CEO Tao.”

“Don’t call me Mr. Tao, just call me Tao Mu.” Tao Mu smiled and said, “Everyone is so familiar already. Always calling me CEO Tao or Mr. Tao, I’m too embarrassed.”

“Then I won’t be courteous.” Zhou Fengxuan said with a smile: “But Tao Mu, I have to give you a suggestion. You are also an actor from a professional acting school, you can’t be so easily embarrassed in the future.”

With the chat with Zhou Fengxuan, the atmosphere immediately became much more harmonious.

The several people went to the studio together. The lighting and scenery were already ready. Today they would be shooting the indoor part first.

Although Guo Yaning wanted to ask Tao Mu to help her shoot the MV, but considering Tao Mu’s lack of experience, she still didn’t dare to hand over the MVs to the new album’s main songs, as well as those MVs with strong styles and complicated plots, to Tao Mu for shooting.

The MV she asked Tao Mu to shoot could be said to be the simplest in the entire album. The name of the song was “First Love”. It told the story of a mature woman in her late thirties who accidentally ran into her first love boyfriend, and returned home and lamented the passing of time. There were also scenes of the heroine reminiscing about the past. Guo Yaning needed to sit in the classroom and sing in a school girl’s uniform.

Generally speaking, the plot was relatively simple.

The part Tao Mu was going to film today was the scene where the mature heroine, who was nearly 30 years old, returned home after seeing her first love boyfriend, while cooking and recalling the past.

The makeup artist painted Guo Yaning a very professional workplace makeup. The makeup style was a bit similar to the makeup looks of the heroines of various workplace TV dramas in the 1990s in Hong Kong, a particularly classic makeup. It was also very suitable for Guo Yaning’s face. The makeup was then paired with a classic OL suit with white shirt and black suit skirt. But how to say it, from the aesthetic point of view of Tao Mu who was from ten years in the future, this makeup and dress, which while classic enough and beautiful enough, was a bit dull and not fashionable enough, not stunning enough.

It seemed to no match with the MV shooting as well.

Tao Mu, who was particularly obsessive-compulsive, said immediately: “This style is not good. It doesn’t match the image of a mature white-collar lady in my imagination. I want to change your look.”

Tao Mu’s state after entering work was a bit ruthless. To be more precise, he was quibbling, stubborn, mulish, and possessed an uncontrollable perfectionist obsessive-compulsive disorder. This was also an important reason why he was able to break through the obstacles to gain a place in the entertainment circle despite being under the heavy pressure of Shen Yu’s admirers in his previous life.

The kind of muslish, powerful aura of “I have the only say” would directly affect the people who cooperated with him. Tao Mu simply quibbled with himself most of the time. For shots that were unsatisfactory to himself, he would ask the director to NG again and again, regardless of the shooting progress, until he was satisfied. Also pulling the actors in the crew together to NG with him.

So this was also an important reason why many actors in the same crew who had worked with him felt that Tao Mu was arrogant and domineering on the set.

After rebirth, Tao Mu had already tried his best to restrain his personality’s shortcomings, but sometimes he couldn’t bear it at all.

For example, if he didn’t agree to shoot Guo Yaning’s MV, then whatever. But since he agreed, he must shoot the best version of the MV in his heart, and polish out all the most stunning parts of Guo Yaning behind the lens.

He must at least let Guo Yaning’s beauty stun the entire entertainment circle with this MV.

The team of professional stylists who were responsible for styling Guo Yaning were also well-known elite makeup artists in China. So it was inevitable to be a little uncomfortable for them to hear this. However, due to Tao Mu’s identity as the CEO of FlyNews, the makeup artists did not dare to show dissatisfaction——the people who succeeded best in the entertainment circle could always keep in mind the golden rule not to provoke capital. They could only look sheepishly at Guo Yaning.

Since Guo Yaning dared to ask Tao Mu to shoot the MV for her, at least she believed in Tao Mu’s aesthetic ability and photographic ability. Hearing this, she smiled calmly and asked, “What kind of look do you think I should change to?”

Tao Muzi carefully looked at Guo Yaning for a while: “First of all, I have to change your hairstyle.”

The hairstyle that Guo Yaning’s stylist gave Guo Yaning was a very common long hair style with a little wave, but the simple styling could make Guo Yaning look mature and beautiful.

Tao Mu styled Guo Yaning’s hair into a South Korean style bob and then dyed it an ash brown. The makeup style was also a very popular South Korean style makeup in the later years. In fact, before Tao Mu’s rebirth, the domestic entertainment industry and fashion circles were deeply influenced by South Korea, with South Korean style eyebrows and nude makeup being seen everywhere.

Although Tao Mu also appreciated the charm of the actresses of Hong Kong in the 1980s and 1990s, he had to admit that if you wanted to shoot an MV, South Korean style makeup was actually easier to highlight the fashion sense of the style. After all, the Chinese people had long become used to the many styles of the actresses of Hong Kong from the 1980s and 1990s.

With these rare beauties in front, Guo Yaning’s imitation makeup, while also beautiful, would definitely not give people the shock of “stunning beauty”.

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 the South Korean style makeup that was born more than ten years later was different. No one had done it before, and naturally no one had seen it before. Making its first appearance with Guo Yaning, it was easy to create the stunning effect Tao Mu needed.

Tao Mu spent five or six hours in the dressing room for just the single style alone. But when Guo Yaning appeared in front of people with the completely new look, as expected, everyone was stunned.

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 075 Different

Tao Mu was taken home by his Xiao Qi Dad and slept all night curled up in the blankets. When he woke up the next morning, the gossip that he was returned to the orphanage by his adoptive parents for abusing his younger brother when he was five years old had already spread all over the Internet.

Tao Mu also experienced such a thing in his previous life.

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 )

At that time, he had been back to the Shen family for more than four years, and the entire entertainment circle knew that he was incompatible with Shen Yu. No matter what movie or TV series Shen Yu made, Tao Mu would either steal Shen Yu’s role or find a way to shoot similar movies and TV series with the same release schedule and the same theme, just to snipe Shen Yu.

Tao Mu’s acting skills were better than Shen Yu’s, but his popularity was not as good as Shen Yu’s. In addition, before each film and television drama was released, Tao Mu was always sounded with various scandals, arousing the audience’s disgust. Therefore, the end result was often that he not only failed to snipe Shen Yu he also ended up worse off, prompting Shen Yu’s fans to ridicule him as “a masochist who actively seeks abuse.”

In the previous life, when Yao Wenxiao instructed tabloids to break the gossip that he had been sent back to the orphanage by his adoptive parents for abusing his younger brother, Tao Mu was currently competing with Shen Yu for the ratings championship that year. Both of them filmed idol dramas with the spy war theme set in the Republic of China era, the protagonist being the Gary Stu growth type, with various old actor veterans as supporting characters.

Because Tao Mu’s acting skills were better, his scenes with the actor veterans better showed off the ups and downs of the plot and was overall more thrilling. The adrenaline of audiences watching the TV drama also increased sharply, and they followed the drama episode by episode. As a result, by the time the TV series was halfway through, the ratings exceeded 3%.

In contrast, although the TV series starring Shen Yu was also on the pass line in terms of ratings. But because his acting skills were still immature, when acting scenes with the old veteran actors, particularly in conflict scenes, he would be completely suppressed, and the audience would inevitably get second-hand embarrassment. The two TV series were released at the same time, and the ratings starring Shen Yu were naturally not as good as Tao Mu’s TV series.

When interviewed by the media, Tao Mu, who was finally able to one-up the other, naturally ridiculed Shen Yu as inferior to him in front of reporters. Verbal provocations such as “Wild ducks are wild ducks, even if the cuckoo occupies the nest it can not become a white swan” undoubtedly angered Shen Yu’s admirers. Then the media broke the scandal that Tao Mu was sent back to the orphanage by his adoptive parents for abusing his younger brother. The scandal was first reported by Yao Wenxiao’s Yuxiao Media and then other media followed up and forwarded it. There was even a TV station that invited Tao Mu’s adoptive parents for a guest interview.

From the day of his debut, Tao Mu had not left a good impression on the audience. Seniors in the industry reprimanded him for acting like a bigshot and deliberately making things difficult for fellow actors (Shen Yu). Actors from the same crews as him also broke the news that he was irritable and difficult to communicate with, looking down on people because of his family background. In addition, Shen Yu’s fans continued to expose his various black materials from over the years——for example, used to work in a nightclub, abandoning old friends after his fortunes changed for the better, arrogantly making it difficult for the actors of the same crew, etc. Various scandals continued one after another. Therefore, the audience’s perception of him had always been bad.

This time, the media broke the scandal that he was sent back to the orphanage by his adoptive parents for abusing his younger brother. The audience who didn’t know the truth just felt that Tao Mu was not a good person as expected. One could tell a person’s character from when they were three years old, after all Tao Mu had just returned to his biological parents’ house and was able to drive away his adopted brother. So at the age of five, he would abuse his younger brother because of jealousy did not seem inconceivable at all.

No one believed that Tao Mu was wronged. Even if he later found old neighbors in the neighborhood to help him clarify the rumors, no one would believe it. They even slandered those old neighbors and accused them of accepting his bribe money to help him speak out. These people anonymously cursed and scolded the old neighbor who helped him speak out on the Internet. Shen Yu’s moronic fans even found and exposed the old neighbor’s home address and workplace, running over to the workplace to make trouble. They cursed in public at the person who helped him speak, saying that she threw away conscience in order to collect dirty money and that she would end up with a sticky ending. It angered the old neighbor auntie so much that her high blood pressure acted up, but fortunately she was sent to the hospital in time.

Later, when the situation got big, Tao Mu contacted the media and marketing accounts to condemn the illegal behavior of extreme fans. As a result, Shen Yu stepped out again to hold a press conference, crying with tears and apologizing for his fans. Saying that he was willing to pay for the hospital fees of the old neighbor and was willing to compensate the old neighbor for her losses.

Of course Tao Mu didn’t need Shen Yu to make this favor. The situation began with him so he would naturally give an explanation to the neighbour. It was a pity that while the neighbour auntie was a very kind person, her kindness was not paid back. Just because she spoke a word for him, she was splashed with such a big pot of dirty water.

So Tao Mu was not going to clarify anything in this life. As Shen Yu’s fans said, he simply had no way to prove that he did not abuse his brother that day. Maybe he deliberately used more strength than he intended when he touched his brother with his fingers, which made him hurt. That was why his adoptive mother beat him so hard.

Those old neighbors all stood outside the house, and no one saw the scene in the house with their own eyes. Since they hadn’t seen it with their own eyes, they were not qualified to testify for him.

Even if they saw it with their own eyes, there was no video to prove it, so who could guarantee that what they said was true.

Anyway, Tao Mu was a vicious and jealous person who could not handle others being better off than him. No matter what this kind of person did, it was not surprising at all.

“Xiao Mu, are you okay?” Meng Qi stood at the door of the bedroom and knocked on the door: “I made you a lotus seed and white fungus eight-treasure porridge, and your favorite red bean buns, will you get up and eat some?”

Tao Mu silently got up from the bed, washed up without a word, and then sat at the dinner table.

While drinking porridge, Tao Mu finally remembered why he liked to eat sweets.

Probably because the previous life was too bitter.

“Don’t bother with the rumors of those gossip tabloids.” Liu Yao was particularly angry: “This group of people is too idle. I tell you, we will never let this matter end like this. Doesn’t surnamed Yao just like to spread rumors, addicted to rumors? He has the Sheng’an Group as his backer and is not afraid of being punished, so let’s not be courteous either. I will fight him to the end. I’ll call Lawyer Zhou, and we will continue to sue him for spreading rumors. Motherf**ker, there’s no evidence or proof at all. Just relying on that black-hearted couple’s opening and closing of their lips to spew sh*t. Who the hell will believe it!”

“They must have accepted money from surnamed Yao, deliberately making trouble for us. Motherf**ker, don’t really anger me. If they piss me off too badly, I will sue them for child abandonment. Make them not only unable to eat meat but also become even worse off.”

Meng Qi also echoed next to him: “Yes. Xiao Mu, don’t pay attention to these people. Everyone knows what kind of child you are. This kind of slander and rumor is obviously a means of revenge, and no one will believe it. Your fans and any netizens with brains won’t believe it. Those who are willing to believe it are idiots or your antis. You don’t need to care about such people at all.”

Tao Mu was taken aback when he heard these words: “Not many people believe it?”

“Yeah!” Liu Yao didn’t even bother to eat breakfast. He went into the bedroom and took out a laptop: “If you don’t believe me, look at it yourself. Your Xiao Qi Dad and I kept watch all last night. Netizens who believe this kind of rumors are really not that many.”

Only then did Tao Mu notice that Liu Yao and Meng Qi’s eyes were red and bloodshot. With just a glance, he knew they stayed up all night.

“You…..didn’t sleep at all last night?”

“Did you forget that your dad runs a nightclub? Sleep what sleep?” Liu Yao’s demeanor appeared strong, but in fact he was indeed feeling a bit tired. He huffed and said: “As long as you don’t hide in the bed and cry pathetically, then that’s better than anything. It’s no big deal, I will take a nap with your Xiao Qi Dad later. Sleeping during the day is more pleasant anyway.”

Tao Mu lowered his head, blinked his hot eyes vigorously, and served a bowl of porridge respectively for Yao Dad and Xiao Qi Dad, and said lowly, “I didn’t cry.”

Liu Yao snorted and did not expose the lie of their little boy. Meng Qi smiled while drinking porridge: “It’s okay to go online more. See what your fans and friends say. Everyone believes in your character. They will definitely not let their imaginations run wild just because of some unfounded remarks. As for people who question you because of others’ biased words, you don’t really need to care about this kind of person.”

Tao Mu didn’t say a word. He lowered his head and browsed FlyNews and found that there were really many people who helped him speak out.

“I’m fainted. Why are they doing this again. Last time they said Tao Mu was ruthless and ungrateful. Last last time they said Tao Mu sold himself in a nightclub. This time, they even spread such ridiculous rumors as CEO Tao abusing his adoptive parents’ son when he was just five years old. What’s next? CEO Tao punching and kicking his biological mother when he was still an embryo?”

“A five-year-old child abusing his one-year-old brother or something. Can I ask what the abuse even entailed?”

“Didn’t the reporter say it? He poked his face with his finger. Poking his younger brother to tears.”

“So it’s not that I’m ruthless and unreasonable! If CEO Tao blinded his adoptive brother with a finger, then I would believe the news to be true. But damn, a five-year-old kid touching his brother’s face with his finger is now considered abuse? I used to grab food from my brother when I was a child, and my mother could barely separate us as we fought at every turn. Then what are we? Attempted murderer?”

“Am I the only one who noticed that the media broke the news that CEO Tao’s adoptive parents sent him back to the orphanage just because they suspected that CEO Tao had abused his younger brother? Are there any netizens who know the law, please explain to us law dummies, is this a crime of abandonment?”

“Want to know +1”

“Want to know +2”

“Can you Tao Mu fans stop kneeling and licking your idol like morons? Did Tao Mu give you money or sleep with your person, why do you protect him one by one? Why don’t you believe that the adoptive parents are telling the truth? In any case, they were also the people who raised Tao Mu for five years. People’s hearts are made of flesh and blood. If there is no reason, which parent can be so cruel to send a child who has been raised by them for five years to the orphanage?”

“I also think the words of the adoptive parents are believable. Tao Mu’s face is particularly fierce. In terms of physiognomy, this kind of face belongs to a typical mean, ungrateful and cold-hearted person. Moreover, Tao Mu’s adoptive parents also said that Tao Mu became particularly gloomy and scary after the pregnancy was confirmed. I think that as a parent, being worried that the adopted son will be detrimental to their own son is understandable and sending the scheming adopted son away for the sake of their own son is excusable, right?”

“Fuck that! You can tell from a five-year-old child whether he is scheming or mean or ungrateful? And physiognomy. Oh, please. Why don’t you say that you can palm read and say that Tao Mu will bring misfortune to his adoptive parents and younger brother and therefore his adoptive parents sent him back to the orphanage?”

“Compared to Tao Mu’s fans, I think Tao Mu’s antis are the ones disgusting, right? Who can even think of a five-year-old in such a bad light?”

“I think Tao Mu is already miserable enough? He was abandoned by his biological parents when he was born, and then abandoned by his adoptive parents when he was five years old. He grew up alone in an orphanage for so many years. Yet he can create such a big successful career at such a young age. He is practically a self-made inspirational model, okay? Don’t you think that our Mu actually picked up the hero’s script?”

“Haha, Tao Mu fans’ filters are really deep. It’s obvious that your Mu have been scheming and shrewd since childhood. An orphan, not relying on parents and family, actually managed to create FlyNews from scratch. And he can even go up against Yao Wenxiao who has the Sheng’an Group as his backing. Just because he seized the weakness of others discrediting him, he acquired dozens of newspapers and magazines outlets without spending a penny, and forced the Sheng’an Group to pay 150 million out of court settlement fees. In the end, he even sent Yao Wenxiao to the detention center for a fifteen days stay. These things suffice to show that your Tao Mu was not a white lotus since he was a child, okay? Then him abusing his adoptive parents’ son out of jealousy or with intentions to seize resources is also reasonable, right?

“So what if he’s not a white lotus? Did he eat your family’s rice? I can personally prove that even if our Mu Mu is not a white lotus, he is a good person full of justice. If Tao Mu hadn’t saved my life, I might have been abducted into the mountains by traffickers and face torture and abuse, and no longer having the opportunity to argue with you on the Internet. So I am especially fortunate that when I was in danger, I ran into Tao Mu who is not a white lotus…..”

Tao Mu was taken aback and clicked on the photo of this netizen. He was stunned to discover that it was the girl Yun Duo who had personally joined the online debate, telling all the netizens online that she went to H Town to play, was tricked into the MLM den by bad guys, and was almost sold into the mountains by human traffickers. Fortunately, Tao Mu led the police to find them at a critical moment.

Yun Duo’s narration reminded forgetful netizens of a sensational case half a year ago. Someone suddenly realized——

“It turns out that in the case back then, Tao Mu was the one who came forth bravely and helped the police. God, this world is too small. I don’t even know that my idol has done such a courageous thing.”

“I remember that there were a lot of people who fell into the MLM den at the time? The police also caught a human trafficking gang because of this. It was a big sensation. Did Tao Mu help the police catch the bad guys?”

“But this girl is quite daring. Generally, girls who encounter such things would want nothing more than to cover it up, afraid of suffering secondary victimization. Little girl, you must protect your information. Delete this comment. Don’t let more people know about you. There are too many vicious people these days. I’m really afraid of you being hurt.”

“Agreed +1. Delete this information quickly.”

“Even if you don’t delete it, make sure to protect your privacy.”

“Tao Mu has done more than this. I’m a group extra in H Town and I specialize in acting as a body double. I know a friend named Gou Rixin, who is also a martial arts extra from H Town. Basically, those who have been in H Town for a long time know this person. Just in September this year, Gou Rixin had a wire accident. At that time…..Later, it was Tao Mu who asked for leave from school and flew over to help catch the adulterer and the adulteress. He also took Gou Rixin to Beijing to see the best doctors…..”

“I am Gou Rixin. I can prove that what the previous netizen said is true. With photos 1, 2 and 3, I am now undergoing rehabilitation at the First People’s Hospital of Beijing City. The operation was particularly successful. The doctor said I will have a full recovery in two months. I am especially grateful to Tao Mu. Without him, I would not be where I am now.”

“I am also a group extra in H Town. Tao Mu was no longer here when I came to H Town. I have never seen him. But I feel that even though Tao Mu only stayed in H Town for two short months, that he could do two good things, this person must be a really good person normally as well.”

“Brother Tao Mu is very nice. He grew up in an orphanage, and he worked part-time to earn tuition and living expenses by himself. He also sent back money to the orphanage every month. Brother Tao Mu often brought us good food. He is really a good person. I forbid you to say bad things about him.”

“The way I feel about it. If a person can do good for more than ten years, it is actually quite a difficult task. Us keyboard warriors on the Internet speak very lightly, but it’s best not to hurt a good person. Just based on Tao Mu having done so many good things for so many years, so what if he really poked his brother so hard it made him cry when he was five years old? Who did not come from years as a child, who did not do one or two obnoxious things when he was a child? You can’t give someone life imprisonment just because he poked his brother when he was five years old?”

“Yes. Upstairs +1”

“Upstairs +2”

“I think what upstairs said is particularly true.”

Tao Mu read every comment. He discovered that there were indeed netizens who were maliciously speculating about him. But there were also more netizens, or his friends, who were willing to stand forward and help him speak out. There were also fans who have never known him but have always believed in him.

Although Tao Mu didn’t know why in the same case, the reaction of netizens in this life was so different from that of the previous life. But Tao Mu really felt that he hadn’t lived this life in vain.

It was really lucky to be able to be reborn again and meet so many such good people.

Tao Mu stared fixatedly at the computer screen. Suddenly, his cell phone rang.

Meng Qi didn’t wait for Tao Mu to react, he stood up and went to Tao Mu’s bedroom and then handed the mobile phone to Tao Mu after returning.

The call was made by Guo Yaning, a leading actress in the entertainment circle. When Tao Mu answered the call, he heard Guo Yaning’s brisk voice on the other end of the receiver: “Hey, I say, big and busy boss Mr. Tao, my new album will be released next year on Valentine’s Day. When will your venerable self be able to take time out and help me shoot the MV?”

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 )

“I have been waiting for so long that the dishes have already gone cold?”

Tao Mu smiled upon hearing this, and said warmly, “Sister Guo, thank you.”

On the other end of the call, Guo Yaning hooked up the corner of her mouth and said with playful disgust: “Can you call me Sister Ya Ning? When you call me Sister Guo, why do I have the feeling that I am one of the neighborhood committee aunties?”

Back To The Beginning Of Ming To Do Charity CH 116 Meat Wedged In Steamed Bun

Zhao Junyong was not a commoner. He had a very good background. He used to be a mid-rank official of Nanjing in the Yuan Dynasty. When Fang Guozhen accepted the court’s recruitment, the official position given to him by the court was about the same and it was only this year he was promoted to the Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces to participate in politics. So Zhao Junyong’s starting point was very high. He was different from the generals who rose to power as a commoner during troubled times. He was a talent in both civil and military skills. Such talents were very few in any era.

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 )

“How is it?” Lin Yuan was sitting in a makeshift camp, with food in front of him——steamed bun with ham. This ham was made from pork legs, not modern processed ham, so it tasted delicious and eating it was convenient. It was just that it was a bit hard and chewing it led to sore cheeks.

However, only Lin Yuan, Song Shizhao and the others were supplied with meat wedged in steamed buns as rations. After all, there were only so many people raising pigs.

Luo Ben asked as he ate the meat steamed bun, “Why do you say this is a meat wedged bun? Isn’t this a steamed bun wedged with meat?”

Lin Yuan took a bite, drank a sip of water and swallowed it. He said, “Meat wedged inside a steamed bun.”

Luo Ben was taken aback for a moment, and then chuckled: “It turns out that it’s such a bun.”

The battle report never came. Lin Yuan was a little anxious, but his anxiety was subtle. He would not pace back and forth, nor would he show worry on his face. On the contrary, the more anxious he was, the more calm he appeared.

Luo Ben thought it was because Lin Yuan was already sure of victory, so he could calmly wait for the news of victory.

“Zhao Junyong…..” Luo Ben said suddenly, “I’ve heard of this person. He was originally an official of the dog court. Later, he joined Guo Zixing’s army with another person. This person has a long-term vision, unlike Fang Guozhen who is ever fearful and nervous.”

Lin Yuan thought for a while, and suddenly said: “Sometimes people who are ever fearful and nervous live a long time.”

Fang Guozhen lived to the end, and most of the people who lived to the end in history were not heroes, but villains.

Luo Ben was taken aback for a moment, and he didn’t know how to continue the conversation.

At this moment, the battle report finally came.

Generally, there were only three options at this point, they either won or lost at this time, or in need of reinforcements.

The soldier was covered in mud and blood, as if he had just crawled out of a sea of ​​corpses. He rode his horse and was led in front of Lin Yuan. He knelt on his knees and quickly reported the battle report.

As Lin Yuan had guessed, they won. Zhao Junyong’s head was cut off by Chen Baisong and hung on a long pole. The confidants who resisted with him wanted to continue to break through, but were all beheaded by Zhu Yuanzhang and Li Congrong.

Now they were counting the number of people killed and the number of prisoners of war.

But there were not many left. Some soldiers climbed up the mountain when they saw that the situation was not right. People who want to live and have quick minds could always find a way, and Chen Baisong and the others would also not go up the mountain to search for escapees. It consumed too much manpower and did not have much significance.

The prisoners of war were surrounded. Most of them didn’t actually have armor, or any breastplates. As for helmets, some had and some didn’t. But this was already considered pretty good. After all, the military required money everywhere and money was not inexhaustible. Sun Deya was not a person with a huge amount of money in his hands. Even if there were merchants who supported him, it was still not enough to equip all his soldiers with expensive equipment.

Except for Lin Yuan’s, most of today’s armed forces were like this.

Lin Yuan spent practically all the money he could use on military supplies. The salt mines in Xinghua provided him with financial assistance, and the grain and grass rations were sponsored by the merchants, so his biggest expenditure was on weapons and equipment.

This time the troops were dispatched, the grain and grass rations were basically given to him by Shen Fu free of charge, and Shen Fu’s youngest son, Shen Rong, followed them all the way as well. He had to learn how to follow the army and arrange the follow-up delivery of grain which could only be done after he knew the route.

Lin Yuan felt that it was impossible for these merchants to not make money. They were practically desperadoes. They could even put themselves in danger for the sake of money.

It was impossible to send these prisoners of war to Ru Ning. The journey was too long and there were so many people, he couldn’t dispatch enough people to escort them over.

Take them with them on the expedition? When the sound of battle started they would flee together, which would mess up the military’s spirit and order.

And it would consume more food.

Lin Yuan remembered Bai Qi, but he couldn’t copy Bai Qi, slaughtering so many people. Not only was it a violation of heaven and harmony, but he had always remembered why he had come this far, which was to prevent young children from crying day and night. So that people did not have to worry about whether they could see the sunrise tomorrow or not. And so that they could rely on their hands to make a better life. (TN: Bai Qi=military general of the Qin state in the Warring States period of China)

He didn’t want to let himself become a devil who regarded human life as nothing.

Even if he knew that copying Bai Qi might be the best way, it was not the only way.

“Guanzhong, these prisoners of war…..” Lin Yuan sought Luo Ben’s advice. He couldn’t think of a countermeasure for the time being, and this was an urgent matter.

Luo Ben glanced at Lin Yuan. He already understood what Lin Yuan meant. Lin Yuan didn’t want to kill these prisoners of war, but it would also be a burden and a possible threat to keep them. Luo Ben thought for a while and said in a deep voice, “Why don’t you let them find a way of survival on their own? “

Lin Yuan said lowly: “Let them go?”

Luo Ben nodded: “This place is not close to Haozhou. Even if they head back, it will take a while, moreover not everyone can walk all the way back.”

There would be many people who would die on the road, due to hunger, disease, and accidental food poisoning.

Lin Yuan understood, this was the last choice he could make.

He called over a small soldier and gave him a secret letter. Both Chen Baisong and Zhu Yuanzhang knew his handwriting. One must have unique tokens on the battlefield to execute orders. Li Congrong——he was illiterate even now, so his military strategist was picked for him by Lin Yuan and the degree of loyalty he had towards Lin Yuan was beyond doubt.

This military strategist was also Song Shizhao’s proud disciple——Yang Shaowei. This person was young but had a talent for scheming. He had inherited Song Shizhao’s skills for conspiracy and tricks, or resourcefulness, and had also inherited Song Shizhao’s pettiness. This pair of master and disciple when added together, accumulated enough vinegar it could drown people. (TN: vinegar=jealousy)

But he was indeed very loyal to Lin Yuan. Song Shizhao had brainwashed him to this effect. Lin Yuan even felt that Yang Shaowei could die without hesitation if he gave the order.

This was also the reason why he could rest assured in putting Yang Shaowei next to Li Congrong.

After all, Li Congrong was really not a reassuring person. He was an outgoing person and said whatever thought came to his mind. He was simply not a man of shrewdness. But he also had many good traits. He was upright, generous and never speculated about the meaning of others with dark thoughts. He was like a little sun, and no one around him would develop feelings of dislike towards him.

Sometimes Lin Yuan felt that only by living like Li Congrong could people live long and happy, as well as positively affect the people around them.

It was a pity that he couldn’t become that kind of person. Even if it was possible before, when he chose this path, it already destined what kind of person he would become in the future.

But he would not regret the choice he made.

After reading the letter written in his handwriting, Chen Baisong and Zhu Yuanzhang released the prisoners of war.

The weapons of the prisoners of war were all confiscated, and those who had armor and helmets were also stripped of them. Of course, it was impossible to leave such things behind for them.

The prisoners of war were at a loss. They knew that they had been released, but this did not bring them the slightest joy. They felt only confusion.

Some of them had entered the barracks because they were homeless, some were forcibly recruited, and some willingly joined the army to have a constant meal.

The general led them on a march for a long time, and sometimes they had to travel day and night, forgetting even how long they had been walking.

Then…..they met the enemy, and then they lost, the general died, and they thought they would also die.

But now the other party says they can live?

How would they survive, walk back to Haozhou with their two legs? But they had rations when they came, and nothing when they left.

Some of them who thought less were very happy that they could go home and didn’t have to lose their lives.

And some others had troubled looks, how could they go back? Drinking northwest wind the whole way back, and then living in hiding after arriving back, otherwise? They were captured as prisoners of war, and then let back? People would just think they were deserters.

The cheering group of people was the fastest to go. They were eager to go back home. Although there was nothing back home, they still had hope in their hearts.

Another group did not leave. These people had no family and relatives in Haozhou. They became soldiers for a bite of food. In their opinion, no matter where they served as soldiers, they were soldiers who put their lives on the line. In any case, it was just to find a place that provided meals so they wanted to stay.

“Theh want to stay?” Zhu Yuanzhang was also a little surprised.

Li Congrong was chewing the meat wedged steam buns and said, “Then let them stay and fight, anyway we are also going to fight battles.”

Fighting battles were costly, and some of their soldiers had died in this battle. It was a good thing to be able to replenish them.

Chen Baisong frowned.

Li Congrong: “Why do you look at me like this? You don’t want to let them stay?”

Chen Baisong had a bad tone: “Where did your meat wedged bun come from?”

Li Congrong looked innocent: “I saw your personal guard busy outside just now, and found that he was going to bring this to you. So I told him to give it to me, and I will bring it to you instead.”

Chen Baisong: “…..And you ate it.”

Li Congrong had a blissful expression on his face: “It tastes good, and chewing it is also a pleasant experience. I didn’t see it, old Chen, but you sure know how to live the good life, don’t tell me you got yourself a woman? I married a wife, but she never cares what I eat.”

Chen Baisong had no expression on his face: “I don’t care what you eat either.”

That was something Lin Yuan had someone prepare specifically for him. Neither Zhu Yuanzhang or Li Congrong got a share, only he did.

But no matter how angry, he could only swallow his anger, and secretly hope that Li Congrong would choke to death on it.

Zhu Yuanzhang didn’t know the inside story, and said on the side: “More than 20,000 people want to stay.”

Chen Baisong said: “It’s still too much.”

If there were only 10,000 people, they could be absorbed.

Zhu Yuanzhang also sighed helplessly.

They had to drive 10,000 people away.

Li Congrong: “At this time of the year, a group of people traveling together won’t die. They can pick bark to eat, and the wild beasts also don’t pass by places with too many people. Tell them and see how many people will leave.”

Zhu Yuanzhang nodded, and Chen Baisong had no objection.

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 finishing his last bite, Li Congrong sucked a few fingers and said blissfully: “Next time you eat this, remember to call me. I just ate three and still haven’t eaten enough, so don’t be too stingy.”

Chen Baisong did not speak.

The personal guards outside the tent trembled.

What General Li just took away were the last three meat wedged steamed buns.

Back To The Beginning Of Ming To Do Charity CH 115 Going All Out

“General! There is an enemy attack!” The soldier rushed to Zhao Junyong with blood on his face.

Zhao Junyong sat on his horse, his lips pressed tightly: “Whose army?”

Soldier: “They didn’t fly a flag! Can’t be distinguished!”

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 )

Zhao Junyong gritted his teeth: “How many people are there?”

Soldier: “Two teams of troops rushed in from the north and the south. They have sophisticated weapons. They are veteran soldiers at first glance. They are definitely not bandits and robbers, but the number is not large. There should be only 20,000 to 30,000.”

Zhao Junyong breathed a sigh of relief when he heard the number of soldiers. He had a strong army of 100,000. It was impossible he couldn’t kill a 20,000 army. He said sinisterly: “No matter who they are, they have to leave their lives behind for me today!”

As long as he found out whose soldiers they were at that time, it could be regarded as his own military merit. When facing Peng Da, he would be able to straighten his back and look at the other down his nose.

Zhao Junyong lead his soldiers to rush towards the rear.

Chen Baisong and Li Congrong each led ten thousand people. They were like a sharp knife, stabbing through their opponent’s formation. Zhao Junyong’s soldiers had never seen such a scene before. Each of these people wore breastplates and helmets, carried long knives and long spears that flashed with cold light. The cavalry rushed straight at them as if they were just passing through no man’s land.

Chen Baisong pulled up the reins and his horse immediately reared up, the horseshoes slamming hard against the enemy army in front of him.

He led five thousand cavalry, five thousand infantry, and while the cavalry charged into battle the infantry followed the path that the cavalry had opened.

“Take them down for me!” Zhao Junyong shouted loudly, cracked his riding whip fiercely, and rushed into the fray.

The Sun army heard their general’s voice and found their pillar. They took up the weapons in their hands and rushed towards Chen Baisong and Li Congrong.

Chen Baisong shouted: “Withdraw!”

Li Congrong followed closely behind, the two turned their horses, and the soldiers followed them as they rushed out again.

Zhao Junyong sneered and said, “You dare to touch the tiger’s whiskers, chase after them!”

There were only so many people and they retreated as soon as they saw him. No matter how small the mosquito was, it was also a military merit.

The soldier next to him said cautiously: “General, they say not to pursue a desperate foe, maybe it is a scheme.”

Zhao Junyong: “Timid and fearful! My army is 100,000 strong, they are not our opponents even if they come with another 20,000 or 30,000 people!”

The soldier took a deep breath: “They act quite well-organized and have sophisticated weapons, so there may be…..”

Zhao Junyong was not a fool either, but his thoughts turned and he said with a smile: “The people here now have all come for Hanyang. Nowadays, those who have the troops to fight war, either it is Xiao Ming Emperor or the Southern King. They are not as close to Hanyang as we are. Even if they rushed over when they heard the news they couldn’t have gotten as far as here.”

“If this is the case, those people should only be family soldiers nearby.” Zhao Junyong smiled with a triumphant smile on his face, “It’s just worms shaking the tree.”

The soldier had a suddenly enlightened expression: “As expected of General! General has great wisdom!”

Zhao Junyong glanced at the soldier proudly.

He didn’t know that Lin Yuan had a golden finger and already knew the time in advance, and as a result he had set off long ago.

If Lin Yuan did not have a golden finger, then his inference was correct, and he would not fall into a deathly trap.

Zhao Junyong took the lead and rushed forward. They were not familiar with the terrain here. Even if there were scouts to clear the way, they would not be able to explore too far. The soldier persuaded, “General, the scouts haven’t visited that side.”

Zhao Junyong wanted to choke this talky little soldier to death, but thinking of how many things this little soldier had given him back at home, he could only bear his presence. With blue veins popping on his forehead, he said in a bad tone: “The road is dead, but people are alive. Do you have any flexibility at all?”

The soldier still wanted to speak, but Zhao Junyong had already rushed out.

Zhu Yuanzhang was on the slope of the canyon with a device of clairvoyance in his hand——a telescope. This thing was reconstructed by Lin Yuan, but the material used to make the lens was not glass, but high-transparency crystal. After the craftsmen were told to polish it according to Lin Yuan’s requirements they were all crying as they polished. The cost was very high, but in Lin Yuan’s view, it was very worthwhile.

However, it could not be mass-produced. Lin Yuan sometimes even thought, if God could send him an engineer transmigrator, he was very willing to lift him in on a pedestal as high as the sky and give him whatever he wanted.

Even if the other only knew theoretical knowledge, they would still be better than him who could barely even reconstruct a telescope.

Zhu Yuanzhang’s personal guard looked at Zhu Yuanzhang with envy. This clairvoyance device was bestowed by the South Bodhisattva to their general. Everyone in the barracks knew that this clairvoyance device could see far away objects that everyone couldn’t see. As long as this device was used, one could clearly see everything the other person was wearing. Apart from letting them look at it when he first got it, their general never let them touch it again.

Zhu Yuanzhang turned his head and saw the expression of his personal guard, and found that this man was practically salivating, almost drooling in front of him. He chuckled and handed his clairvoyance device to his personal guard: “Take a look.”

The personal guard took the clairvoyance device with both hands. He treated it very preciously. Although no one knew how the clairvoyance device was made, everyone thought it was a method of the gods. Only the South Bodhisattva could make it. There were so many capable people and geniuses in the world but none of them could make it, only the South Bodhisattva could make it. Didn’t this prove once again that the South Bodhisattva was extraordinary?

The enemy had not arrived yet.

The personal guard looked at the woods in the distance with relish: “This clairvoyance device is really good. The gods in the sky all use this too? Therefore they can see things happening in the mortal world.”

Zhu Yuanzhang thought for a while: “Perhaps.”

He also felt that Lin Yuan was extraordinary.

The longer he stayed under Lin Yuan’s command, the deeper the feeling.

Other than not knowing how to fight, Lin Yuan was practically omnipotent.

Even the milk tofu that everyone ate in the military camp was something Lin Yuan had people make. It was a bit sour and very hard, but it was filling, and one could feel full just from eating a small piece. Marching soldiers all loved to eat this, although not everyone was used to the flavor, the fact that it was filling was enough.

“Have you seen enough? Give it back to me.” Zhu Yuanzhang said with exasperation while watching his personal guard look like he had become stuck to the clairvoyance device.

The personal guard handed the clairvoyance device back to Zhu Yuanzhang reluctantly: “General, you say, will South Bodhisattva allocate one for each of us in the future?”

Zhu Yuanzhang smiled and said, “Such transparent crystal is not common, and South Bodhisattva also got it by accident.”

The personal guard sighed and decided to work hard to climb up the ladder. If one day he became a general, the South Bodhisattva would definitely give him one.

If he could get a clairvoyance device of his own, wouldn’t that be blissful.

Just when the personal guard was daydreaming, Zhu Yuanzhang’s expression became serious, and he put down his clairvoyance device: “They’ve come, get ready!”

The personal guard quickly came back to his senses.

Chen Baisong and Li Congrong led their troops through the canyon. After the last one passed, Zhu Yuanzhang gave the order: “Set fire!”

The grass balls were ignited by fire and rolled down the hillside. In addition to the grass balls, there were huge boulders rolling down together as well.

Two ranks of archers were also at the ready. The accuracy of their crossbows was much better than that of traditional bows and arrows. There were no shortcomings except that the cost to produce them was too high. Lin Yuan was a person who did not indulge in pleasure and was willing to spend money on weapons. So all the archers were equipped with one.

Zhao Junyong had already noticed something wrong when he saw the two troops rushing into the canyon. He was about to shout to retreat when a rain of arrows fell down from the canyon above along with the huge fireballs and boulders. The soldiers were completely unprepared and did not hear an order from their superior in time so they were instantly thrown into chaos.

Under the huge roaring crashes, Zhao Junyong’s command was not heard by anyone but the people closest around him.

Just before Zhao Junyong had his subordinate wave the flag of retreat, Zhu Yuanzhang and Chen Baisong had already led their troops down.

The canyon was narrow in front and wide in the back so it was impossible to retreat in the front. And with the giant boulders and rain of arrows in the front, while the enemy rushed in from the rear. The formation of this army had already dispersed, and the soldiers had lost their fighting spirit. Even with weapons in their hands, they posed no threat.

A hundred thousand army, when the military order could not be conveyed properly, it would become a mass of scattered sand, which resulted in a more deadly disadvantage than a small army.

The military orders of a big army were generally conveyed by flags, and different flags had different meanings.

Offense had a flag, and retreat had a flag.

Changing the formation was another flag.

But now, even if Zhao Junyong held up the flag, the people behind couldn’t see it anymore.

Zhao Junyong was able to flee with his personal guards, but he couldn’t run. Where would he go if he ran away? As an army deserter, unless he changed his identity and became a commoner, he would never be able to regain his seat as a general in this life.

“Kill!” Zhao Junyong raised his spear, “Kill and charge out with me!”

At this time, they could only fight to the death.

The personal guards followed him, and he had to fight head-on, even if the soldiers could not see his military orders.

When Zhao Junyong was riding through the crowd, the soldiers finally saw their general and found their pillar. The scattered sand reunited, and they regained their combat effectiveness, as if they were reborn.

Zhao Junyong held a crossbow in his hand. His martial arts skills were extraordinary, and none of his moves were for show, practically every one was a killing blow.

Chen Baisong raised his eyes and rushed over with his troops.

He must kill Zhao Junyong. If this person was still alive, they would not necessarily win. Even if they won, they would definitely win with terrible casualties.

In order to capture the thieves, one must capture the king first. So long as this person died, the enemy army would disperse.

“Brother Chen, be careful!” Zhu Yuanzhang shouted and led his troops to chase over.

When two armies face each other, one step wrong means tens of thousands of lives.

Li Congrong spit out a wad of blood onto the ground: “Fuck, brothers! Follow me! Go back alive and rise up the ranks!”

There were clear rewards for military merits.

Awarding land——the land was owned by the state, it was just that no taxes would be collected.

Awarding house, awarding money.

If the merit was too great, official titles and aristocratic titles would be conferred.

Sure enough, when Li Congrong said this, the soldiers beside him all shouted loudly.

Those farther away who could not hear him also shouted out loudly after being infected with the emotions of the crowd. Their morale was high, and none of them flinched.

These soldiers were all organized troops. They had been trained for at least two years, and every one of them was in their prime.

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 )

On the other hand, 30% of Zhao Junyong’s army consisted of the young and old. And although 70% were made up of men in their prime, their physical fitness was not comparable to that of Lin Yuan’s soldiers.

Their desperate struggle only let them catch a brief breath.

Bird Dude Nie Bufan CH 105 Secluded Paradise

“Zhang Third, do you feel as if there have been a lot of strange people around Chicken Nest Village recently?”

That was because Chicken Nest Village has become famous! Zhang Junshi did his calculations on the abacus and ignored him, just letting out a careless “en”.

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 )

Nie Bufan held his chin, his eyes sparkling, and said, “Say, should I expand my business?”

“Expand what business?”

“The integration of accommodation, food, and entertainment, completely shaping our village into a beautiful resort with taste, interest and pursuit.” Nie Bufan announced with a look of longing, as if he was seeing countless copper coins flying towards him.

A village full of dilapidated houses, tables, chairs and bed cabinets that were full of traps, exactly how tasteful could such a village be?

Zhang Junshi stopped working and said to Nie Bufan earnestly: “Bufan, let go of those pitiful people.”

Nie Bufan squinted at him, and said with discontent: “What do you mean by that? You sound like I will do harm to them?”

Wouldn’t you? The people who stayed in your village either died without an intact corpse, or they were bent by your alluringness. Throwing you onto the battlefield would perhaps even lead to world peace!

Zhang Junshi straightened out his expression and put it another way: “If you think about it this way, once the village is opened to the outside world, there will be a large number of idle people flocking over. Taking care of their daily lives will require a lot of servants. You have to recruit people and with too many people, you have to spend energy in managing them as well as adjust the relationship between these outsiders and the chickens. If there is an accident, it might cause a big battle, which will only end in tragedy. Do you want to see such a scene?”

“Huh.” Nie Bufan leaned on the table, a battle between heaven and man raking place inside him.

Zhang Junshi patted his head and comforted: “If you are bored, then train some more fighter chickens. Recently, the combat power has been insufficient, so leave the moneymaking to me. I will take care of outside matters, and you can be in charge of inside affairs. In this way, what is there to worry about life without taste, interest, and pursuit?”

Nie Bufan considered it again and again, but in the end he reluctantly agreed.

Zhang Junshi was secretly relieved, it was fortunate he dismissed the idea in time. If he were to really rent out Chicken Nest Village residences, the consequences would be unimaginable. He had enough merit (gong), no need to continue to add more. What was more, this was their home with Bufan, so how could they tolerate other monsters and ghosts entering the inner chamber after stepping through the main room?

Time passed busily and full of joy, and soon it was the end of the year without knowing it. Li Yi rushed back to Chicken Nest Village the day before the New Year’s. Nie Bufan gave him a warm bear hug, and then stretched out his hand: “Happy New Year’s, hand over the red envelope. “

Li Yi dug into his pockets and handed him a bronze tablet.

“This is?”

“My identity token, it will be given to you from now on.”

Nie Bufan suddenly felt that colorful bubbles were filling up the whole world. He smiled so wide his face looked like a chrysanthemum and patted Li Yi’s shoulder, saying: “Li Fourth, don’t worry, after following me, in the future you will eat and drink deliciously, if I have a bed then we’ll sleep together and if I have pants then we’ll both wear it, I will definitely not treat you badly.”

“En.” Li Yi said calmly, “If you treat me wrongly, I will drag you into the coffin and we’ll sleep together forever.”

“It’s the New Year’s, can you say something auspicious?”

“Then, help me wash my back later.”

“…..”

The quiet mountain village, the snow-white earth, and the pace of the New Year’s moved lightly.

Zhang Junshi, Li Yi, and Wang Shichan accompanied Nie Bufan to make dumplings, stick red paper designs, stay up past midnight, set off firecrackers, enjoy moon watching, taste wine, tell stories, and then…..sleep together…..

Nie Bufan smiled extremely sweetly in his dream, and his whole body exuded the brilliance of happiness.

Two days later, Chicken Nest Village received New Year’s gifts from various parties, including Wei Di, Li Huai, Si Chenyu, Tai Bai, and the emperor.

Emperor Ming was very sinister, knowing that Nie Bufan raised a village full of chickens, he sent ten weasels, ten foxes, and ten bobcats in order to eat up his chickens. Unfortunately, he miscalculated!

“I was just worried about the lack of combat power in Chicken Nest Village, then the emperor sent these over. I am so grateful to his venerable old self!” Nie Bufan laughed loudly three times and greeted warmly as he opened the cages, “Welcome, welcome.”

The animals darted out of the cages, ran away like they were escaping for their lives, and then….. chicken transformed.

Nie Bufan’s delight did not stop here. The missing Gold finally came back, and it also brought back a little jumping tiger with black stripes on yellow fur with a circle of white fluff around its neck.

“This is…..your son?” Nie Bufan pinched the soft fur on the little tiger’s neck, the little tiger cub waving its limbs in the air in response.

Gold stood still calmly, glanced at the little tiger lightly, then left gracefully and walked towards his reserved nest.

Nie Bufan was shocked. He really didn’t expect his chicken could actually enlarge a big tiger’s belly! This world was too crazy! Was that white tiger still okay…..

In the following dozens of days, the chickens who went out returned to the village one after another, and brought back all kinds of animals, such as wild boars, wolves, bear cubs, owls, moles, peacocks, foxes, minks, etc. Chicken Nest Village all of a sudden became very lively.

These animals, even if they were all carnivorous, did not eat chickens. They coexisted magically and peacefully with the chickens in Chicken Nest Village.

After communicating with them for a few days, Nie Bufan picked a wild boar, a tortoise and a little monkey, and gave them to Wang Shichan together, and said: “They will be raised by you in the future.”

Wang Shichan looked at the wild boar rolling in the mud and asked, “Why give them to me?”

“They are your disciples, Wukong, Bajie, Sha Wujing.” Nie Bufan pointed them out with their respective names. (TN: a monkey, pig and fish spirit respectively from the Journey to the West, they were disciples to Tang Seng, a Buddhist monk)

“Why do I have to accept a pig, a monkey, and a tortoise as disciples?”

“Wang Fifth, believe me, they all have wisdom roots and will protect you.” Nie Bufan said sincerely, “There will be benefits to reciting scriptures to them every day.”

“…..” Sometimes, he really didn’t know how this guy’s head was structured!

Afterwards, Nie Bufan gave Zhang Junshi a rather dumb wild cat, in the name of: “Lucky Cat.” (TN: maneki-neko or “lucky cat”, Japanese figurine cat usually found at the entrance of shops, restaurants etc, believed to bring good fortune)

What he gifted Li Yi was a bat. Both of them were very similar no matter personality or dressing style. There were no better partners to be friends with than these two.

Since the return of these animals, the idlers who used to hang around Chicken Nest Village disappeared, and Chicken Nest Village had become a secluded place where idlers were exempted from entering.

When the flowers were blooming and spring arrived, Tai Bai came to Chicken Nest Village with large and small luggage bags, intending to live permanently. He had persuaded his father to establish a trade relationship with Chicken Nest Village and was responsible for promoting “chicken pets” that would be sold at home and abroad. However, this required the buyer to personally come to Chicken Nest Village to let the chickens pick them. That’s right, the chickens would be doing the picking. If there was no chicken that took a liking to you, then this sale would not be made.

Today’s Chicken Nest Village was no longer a run-down mountain village that was unknown to the world. Since Gold defeated the tiger back when the Xitu Kingdom’s envoys visited, the fame of the chickens in the Ming Kingdom had spread all over the surrounding countries through foreign envoys. There was an endless stream of people coming to the Ming Kingdom to buy chickens. However, most of them could only buy counterfeit chickens as the chickens in Chicken Nest Village were only open to a few people.

And Tai Bai, not long afterwards, also officially became a well-known “Chicken Young Master”. It was just that in the battle for Nie Bufan, his victory still remained at zero.

Fan Luo also returned to Chicken Nest Village, letting go of all his burdens, and building a wine cellar on the edge of Chicken Nest Village to have a few drinks in his leisure time. Once new wine was brewed, Zhang Junshi would be responsible for its promotion. The jars of fine wine found in the Duobao Sage’s treasure trove were all embezzled by Nie Bufan. And after Fan Luo tasted it, he managed to successfully brew several kinds among the stash, and used this to hook up with Nie Bufan several times.

Nie Bufan also gradually accepted his existence and drew him into his own circle.

Most of the gongs who were “tainted” by Nie Bufan recognized the existence of other gongs, except Wei Di. Wei Di still wanted to monopolize a certain someone, and although he missed the other, he disdained sharing his lover with others.

He said: “If what I get is not wholehearted, I would rather not have it.”

However, when he saw Nie Bufan’s smiling face, these words were immediately thrown out of the window.

After domineeringly sleeping with the other for one night, he said: “If I can’t get even a part of the other’s heart, do I still have the face to be this martial arts leader?”

This was the difference between before and after love…..

Spring passed, and Nie Bufan became lazy. He felt uncomfortable if he didn’t sleep for six or seven hours a day. In addition, he had a huge appetite and his temper also rose.

The several gongs felt uneasy, but the divine doctor said, “It’s a normal phenomenon.”

A normal phenomenon? What was so normal about it?

“Maybe he is pregnant,” said the divine doctor mysteriously.

Pregnant? It was not like Bufan was a woman. And it’s been a few months, and except for getting a little fatter, his belly was not big at all. Was this testing their common sense?

No one believed what the divine doctor said.

However, one morning a few months later, Nie Bufan suddenly carried a package to the back mountain quietly and subtly.

After making sure that there was no one around, he opened the package, revealing the bright white egg inside, the size of a soup bowl. Its surface was warm, and vibration could be felt coming from inside it.

After a while, the egg shell cracked, and a pink foot emerged from the crack.

“This is…..” Nie Bufan widened his eyes as he looked at the baby gradually breaking out of the shell, and muttered, “I say, no wonder my chrysanthemum kept convulsing like crazy, I didn’t expect it to lay an egg!”

He picked up the child in the eggshell, gently held it with both hands, listening to his energetic wailing. He suddenly felt an inexplicable feeling in his heart.

The surrounding chickens raised their heads and let out crows together, seeming to welcome the arrival of this little life.

Nie Bufan carefully wrapped the child in a blanket, and suddenly thought of a question: Exactly who was the father of this child…..

He took the child back, and immediately attracted crowds of onlookers.

His face remained unchanged as he said, “This baby boy was picked up in the woods just now. I decided to adopt it. Who of you wants to be his father?”

Wang Shichan came over and looked at the child, then said calmly: “Leave it to me.”

Nie Bufan was surprised. He didn’t expect that Wang Shichan, who had always been aloof and indifferent, would take on this job.

Wang Shichan held the child with a smile on his lips. Perhaps even Nie Bufan could not be sure, but he knew very well that Bufan’s first child was definitely his!

The rest of the people had no suspicions about his claim of having picked up the child. After all, such a thing as a man giving birth was unheard of, and it was beyond their common knowledge.

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 )

However, this secret was finally made public when Nie Bufan laid an egg for the second time.

At that time, one could imagine what kind of fierce battle would follow…..

TN: lmao! The long awaited egg babies😂

Bird Dude Nie Bufan CH 104 Summons

Si Chenyu and the others returned to Yan Shun with the treasures, which immediately aroused the attention and heated discussion of all parties. After viewing the treasures, Emperor Ming summoned painters and selected nearly a hundred rare treasures to be drawn into paintings, displayed publicly, and shared with the people.

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 )

According to the previous agreement, the treasures were divided into five shares, and everyone who held the key could get a share. This included the royal family, the Li family, the Shen family, the Wang family, and the Duobao Sage’s descendant.

As for the four families getting a share, everyone had known about it for a long time, and it was not surprising. What was truly amazing was the heir of the Duobao Sage who seemed to have emerged out of thin air. His identity was not a secret in the upper echelon, but there were few rumors among the common people. Until Emperor Ming told the world, everyone suddenly discovered that there was such a character.

Sharing the treasures with the four great families, just what glory and honor was this? The identity of this heir soon became known throughout the world with this announcement. As the head of a small mountain village in a remote mountainous area, the disparity in his status and the huge wealth he obtained as well as the glory of being equal to the four great families also became something the people liked to chat about.

But, what really made him famous did not stop here.

“Wei Xiaobao, Nie Bufan, descendant of the Duobao Sage.” Emperor Ming gritted his teeth in the palace. Before Fan Luo returned to the capital, he had already found out the identity of Wei Xiaobao, who was really Nie Bufan, the village head of Chicken Nest Village and the descendant of Duobao Sage.

This guy not only used a pseudonym to deceive him, the emperor, but also dared to steal his imperial order and run off. It was really unforgivable!

What made him even more angry was that Fan Luo bluntly conveyed his confession, practically the picture of an infatuated man willing to accept any punishment in order to be with the guy for a lifetime, causing him to not even have a sense of accomplishment in beating him.

“Hmmph, you want to be with him forever? Then you must see if I agree with you!” Emperor Ming ordered: “Qian gonggong, immediately send someone to summon Nie Bufan, the village head of Chicken Nest Village, to come to the capital! Within ten days, I want to see him before me!”

When Fan Luo heard this, he flashed a wickedly charming smile to Emperor Ming.

Emperor Ming got goosebumps at the sight, a bad feeling sprouting in his heart.

Qian gonggong took the order and handed the imperial decree to a eunuch who would be setting off immediately.

However, this eunuch never imagined that a simple and easy journey to deliver the imperial decree would turn out to be a brutal and inhuman tragedy. As soon as he left the city, he was spotted by people from several families. In the following days, various “accidents” followed one after another, pickpockets, bandits, horses going out of control, boats sinking, lawsuits and conflicts…..It was simply one hard and painful life experience.

The original journey of two or three days actually took him more than half a month, which far exceeded the time limit given by Emperor Ming.

When he finally arrived at Chicken Nest Village alive, he was already thinner than a cauliflower, and as emaciated as moldy bread.

Tremblingly, he handed over the imperial decree and then exhausting all his remaining strength, he declared: “Chicken, Chicken Nest Village, Village Head Nie, Nie Bufan accept the decree, the emperor orders you to, to immediately enter the capital for an audience…..”

As soon as the voice fell, the person immediately keeled over with a “thump”.

Nie Bufan touched the “corpse” on the ground with his foot.

Zhang Junshi said: “He’s not dead, he’s just exhausted and fainted.”

“Oh.” He opened the imperial edict and looked at it, then turned his head and asked, “Why would the emperor summon me?”

“Probably to distribute the treasures of the Duobao Sage.” Wang Shichan’s eyes glimpsed the content of the imperial edict, the words fierce but not lacking in literary airs, and there was also a hint of warning.

“I have to get the treasures by myself?” Nie Bufan looked unhappy. He liked money, but this like was limited to money that could be obtained just by reaching out his hand. He would rather give up on it if he had to travel the long distances to the capital to get it. And looking at the miserable appearance of this eunuch, don’t know how much hardship he had suffered along the way? Maybe the journey to the capital was extremely dangerous and difficult, so he would rather not put himself through that.

Besides, his chickens had taken a lot of good things from the cave long ago, hiding them in every corner of Chicken Nest Village. If one day he became fed up with poverty, he would just take out a few to sell, and still live a comfortable and unrestrained life.

“Wang Fifth, you help me write a letter of rejection, saying that I voluntarily give up those treasures and let the emperor convert it to money to fund the widows and orphans across the country!” Nie Bufan threw the imperial decree to Wang Shichan casually.

Wang Shichan gave him a deep look and said, “My handwriting is easy to be recognized so it is not convenient for me to write it. Let Jun Shi write it for you.”

Zhang Junshi smiled and nodded, giving up such a large amount of wealth so easily, his magnanimity was really not comparable to ordinary people.

The next day, when the eunuch that woke up learned that Nie Bufan was unwilling to be summoned to the capital, his whole person was about to collapse, weeping bitterly as he held the letter Wang Shichan handed him.

Nie Bufan patted him on the shoulder, and comforted: “Don’t be sad, believe me, if the emperor receives this letter, he will not be angry, but will reward you instead.”

“Really?” The eunuch sobbed.

“Of course, you can go back without any worries!” Nie Bufan looked sincere.

Wang Shichan and Zhang Junshi looked at the eunuch who seemed to be comforted, and their faces both showed sympathy.

Speaking of Emperor Ming. Since the eunuch set off, his mood changed day by day. Although he was as solemn and dignified as ever when dealing with state affairs, he became irritable when he returned to the harem. The eunuch had left a long time ago but there was still no news even after half a month. He nearly had no more patience left and almost sent the imperial guards to bring the person over.

At this moment, the eunuch who went to pass the decree came back, but he didn’t bring back the person he wanted to see. There was only a polite letter that showed the writer’s elegant demeanor.

Emperor Ming stared at the content of the letter, his fingers trembling slightly, and then he suddenly wadded the letter into a ball, and threw the letter at the eunuch, furious: “Zhen asked you to bring the person into the palace. Yet you delayed for dozens of days only to bring me back this?”

The eunuch was scared into curling up like dried shrimp, trembling non-stop.

“Speak, are you tired of living!”

“Your Majesty, please spare my life, spare my life! This slave has done his best!” The eunuch cried tragically.

Emperor Ming eased his breathing and recalled the content of the letter. It was obviously impossible to have come from Nie Bufan’s hand. He knew exactly what kind of poor habits that person had. But what did surprise him was that he would give up that wealth without hesitation.

“Zhen will give you a chance to redeem yourself.” Emperor Ming said to the eunuch responsible for passing the decree, “You will go pass the decree again, and this time you must bring him back for Zhen.”

“Your Majesty, spare me!” The eunuch fell on the ground, “this slave begs Your Majesty to spare me, and send someone else to pass the decree!”

“Hmmph, then you can just leave your head behind, and you don’t have to go anywhere anymore.”

“Your Majesty, this slave shall complete the task with determination!”

“Very well, this time I will send with you a team of people to escort you to Chicken Nest Village. If necessary, you can have him tied up in order to be brought back.”

“Yes, this slave takes the order.”

The eunuch retreated, and Emperor Ming rubbed his chin, lost in thought. He was faintly aware that many people seemed to be secretly protecting that daring and audacious guy.

Wang, Li, Shen, Wei. Emperor Ming wrote a few words with a brush, thought for a moment, and then wrote “Heaven Divining Palace” on the paper.

“Heh.” He snorted and murmured, “You’re quite likeable, huh. Saying you don’t want the treasure just like that, fine, Zhen will grant you your wish.”

Three days later, Emperor Ming issued a notice that Nie Bufan, the heir of Duobao Sage, donated all the treasures in his share to the national treasury as a donation for the poor, worth about 105,200 taels of silver.

As soon as this news came out, it immediately shocked the world.

One hundred and five thousand taels, such a staggering sum of money, yet giving it up without blinking. What kind of heroic figure was this Duobao Sage heir?

Soon after, the news that he repeatedly rejected the summons of Emperor Ming spread like wildfire. Three consecutive summons, all returned without success. Emperor Ming was very vexed, but couldn’t blatantly send people to capture and bring him over as the whole world was watching. If he did this, he would definitely be criticized by literati and righteous scholars.

In order to get Nie Bufan into the palace, he even secretly sent an expert master to steal him, but without exception, all of them failed. Listening to those who reported back, the Chicken Nest Village where Nie Bufan was located had security comparable to that of the imperial palace, and its combat power was equivalent to a whole army…..

Emperor Ming was very depressed, he had never thought that it would be so difficult to capture him back. He finally understood why Fan Luo showed such a weird smile when he sent people to summon Nie Bufan into the palace. It turned out that he had known that this would be the result a long time ago.

Emperor Ming gritted his teeth and with nowhere to vent, he could only transfer all his anger to the ministers and work them to death.

Similar to the dire straits in the imperial palace, the Li family was also experiencing a catastrophe——the Li family’s eldest son, Li Yi and his father had a falling out. The reason was that Li Gongzi fell in love with a man and wanted to give up his family inheritance and spend the rest of his life with the other.

Father Li was furious, he sealed the news and had him on house arrest. But he obviously couldn’t keep him locked up, not only because of Li Yi’s martial arts, but also because of Li Huai’s secret help.

He was locked in the day before, but walked out the next day unharmed. Li Yi did not flee, but showed up in front of father Li every day instead.

During mealtimes, he would say expressionlessly: “Father, I want to spend the rest of my life with that man, so please let me.”

While reading, he stood in the room like a wooden stump and said: “Father, I want to spend the rest of my life with that man, so please let me.”

While going to the toilet, he stood outside the door firmly and said: “Father, I want to spend the rest of my life with that man, please let me.”

While taking a bath, he held the toiletries and said while looking straight ahead, “Father, I want to spend the rest of my life with that man, please let me.”

While sleeping, he would say in the darkness, “Father, I want to spend the rest of my life with that man, please let me.”

“Ah——” After half a month, Father Li finally collapsed!

“Go! I allow it, I allow it!”

Please, I beg you to piss off already!

Li Yi smiled, his original cold expression softening, and he said sincerely: “Father, thank you for your permission, for your kindness in raising and nurturing me, this son will repay you in the next life.”

“Don’t repay, don’t repay anymore.” Father Li waved his hand feebly, and said with exhaustion, “I only hope that you will stay away from me in the next life and the next life after that. I want to live a few more years.”

Li Yi bowed, bowed deeply to Father Li, and left.

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 )

“Ai, Huai’er, the Li family will rely on you in the future.” Father Li patted Li Huai on the shoulder.

Li Huai looked at Li Yi’s leaving back, eyes full of envy, but his tone was very solemn: “Father, this child will not let you down.”

AN: Li Yi has learned the Nie-style shamelessness, and it indeed has a miraculous effect.

Bird Dude Nie Bufan CH 103 Bedroom Talk

After most of the people left, Chicken Nest Village suddenly seemed a bit empty. In a moment of rarity, Nie Bufan felt lost and depressed for several days. He ate less than three bowls of meat for each meal, and put on several catties of weight.

It wasn’t until the earth was covered with snow that his mood gradually improved, and he went to annoy his chickens every day.

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 )

Soon he discovered a serious problem, the number of fighter chickens in Chicken Nest village had decreased! This was a situation that had never happened before. In view of the strange curse of the Chicken Nest Village, the unlucky animals passing by would all turn into chickens, so the number of chickens would only increase.

The growth rate of ordinary meat chickens was normal, but there were not enough fighter chickens. It was not anything surprising if one or two were missing, but dozens of them at a time was a little too weird.

“Zhang Third, do you know where my chickens went?” Nie Bufan rushed to find Zhang Junshi.

“Ah, where did they go?” Zhang Junshi was also at a loss.

“You also don’t know?” Nie Bufan said in distress, “I found that many chickens are missing, do you think they have been taken by traffickers?”

“No.” Zhang Junshi comforted, “They are very smart, how can they be taken by traffickers?” Who had the ability to kidnap and traffic them?

“Really?” Nie Bufan scratched his head and walked back to his room. At a glance, he saw Hero snoozing by the fire.

Nie Bufan walked over lightly and squeezed Hero’s comb and shook it vigorously.

“Ah! Murder, murder!” Hero let out a tragic, trembling screech.

“Hero, I want to ask you something.” Nie Bufan let go and sat by its side.

Hero glanced at him then turned around, ignoring him.

Nie Bufan turned it over again and continued: “I ask you, where are Gold and the others? Where did they go?”

“Don’t know.” Hero turned around again.

Nie Bufan once again turned it over and fixed it in place with his hands, “Lying is bad.”

“Tch.” Hero chuffed disdainfully.

“You are really getting more and more arrogant.” Nie Bufan pinched its beak and said fiercely, “Be careful I don’t stew you.”

Hero stretched out its claw and broke out of his fingers, saying angrily: “Hmph, you are not trustworthy, like Hero will listen to you.”

“Oh? Tell me, why am I not trustworthy?”

“You promised me that you would find me a dozen beauties.” Hero said in a shrill voice, “Now, where are the beauties?”

Nie Bufan was puzzled: “When did I agree?”

“You were tied up, I saved you, reward.”

Nie Bufan was even more confused. When was he tied up?

“Hmph, going back on your words is shameful!” Hero broke away from his hand, flapped its wings, and left the room half-flying half-bouncing.

Nie Bufan fell into deep thought, could he have ignored something important? His heart was like a window with several holes broken, leaking air everywhere.

Wang Fifth and Zhang Third also never answered him directly, and they would just throw him onto the bed if he asked too many questions.

Touching his chin, Nie Bufan had a strange expression on his face.

It was night, pleasured groans came from Zhang Junshi’s room, the two of them were currently rolling around on the bed.

When he was about to reach climax, Nie Bufan turned over and sat on Zhang Junshi. While rubbing lightly, he asked softly: “Zhang Third, does it feel good?”

“En…..Bufan, hurry up.” Zhang Junshi’s voice was low and hoarse, his eyes fiery.

“Don’t worry.” Nie Bufan raised his hips slightly, moved up and off it a little. He said, “Zhang Third, Wang Fifth said something to me the night before.”

“Oh? What did he say?” Zhang Junshi stretched out his hands to support Nie Bufan’s waist, trying to force him down.

But Nie Bufan held himself up with his legs on either side of him, hovering in midair and half on and half off that hard member, refusing to sit down.

“Bufan.” Zhang Junshi looked at him with eyes full of desire.

“Wait, let me talk about Wang Fifth first.”

Zhang Junshi sighed: “Do you have to mention another man on my bed?”

“It’s not just Wang Fifth, I want to mention several more men.” Nie Bufan put his hands on both sides of Zhang Junshi’s body and leaned down to look at him, his long hair falling on the other’s chest, his gaze affectionate and alluring.

Zhang Junshi paused and hesitated: “What are you talking about? Several men?”

“Yes, you, Wang Fifth, Li Fourth, Brother Shi, Huai Huai, Leader Wei…..”

“Wait, you remembered all of it?” Zhang Junshi blurted out.

Nie Bufan narrowed his eyes and said inexplicably, “Oh, what Wang Fifth said is true. They are all my men?”

“Wang Fifth told you?” Zhang Junshi frowned, but as he was about to think carefully, Nie Bufan suddenly sat down and wrapped his desire tightly within warm smooth walls.

“En…..” Zhang Junshi groaned pleasurably, his thoughts interrupted.

“He said a lot.” Nie Bufan panted while rocking his hips, “I just don’t know if I missed anything.”

“What do you think is missing?” Zhang Junshi’s eyes half closed, matching the other’s movements.

“I have forgotten a lot of things.” Nie Bufan stopped suddenly and muttered, “But the body still has memory.”

“The body has memory?” Zhang Junshi stared at him fixatedly, “What kind of memory is it?”

Then he suddenly turned over, pressed the other under his body, and thrusted in hard.

“Ngh…..”

“This kind of memory?” He lifted his leg and continued to attack.

“…..Ah…it’s too deep…..slow down…..” Nie Bufan felt that Zhang Junshi’s movements seemed a bit angry.

“Not enough, still not enough!” Different from the usual gentleness, Zhang Junshi became a bit wild at this time.

“Nnnaaa…..” Did he take the wrong drugs? He just mentioned a few names casually, and he hadn’t spoken the main point yet! But one thing was certain, the few people who left before really had a special relationship with him, and he had indeed lost a lot of memories.

Ah, how conflicted, how did he lose his memory? How did he provoke that bunch of men? Had his charm really reached the point of perfection?

Noticing Nie Bufan’s distraction, Zhang Junshi lowered his head and kissed him deeply and wetly.

There was only the sound of ambiguous slapping flesh in the room, accompanied by the beast-like harsh panting, and soon the both of them reached climax.

After the fierce battle, Zhang Junshi looked at Nie Bufan, who was sleeping in his arms, with a pensive look on his face.

This guy was obviously trying to tease words out of him before, and it was really cunning that he chose to look for his weaknesses in the middle of lovemaking.

Zhang Junshi smiled, and although he was a little jealous, he had already accepted his fate. Whether this guy had lost his memories or not, he was still not one to sit still and stay out of trouble, and maybe he would even continue to attract bees and butterflies one after another in the future. What he could do was to control the number of bees and butterflies as much as possible…..Ai, was there anything more sad in life than this?

Zhang Junshi was really indignant and he couldn’t help but stretch out his hand and pinch that sleeping face, scolding in a low voice: “Nie Bufan, if you dare to leave me, I will chop you into mince meat and feed it to the chickens!”

“Umm, is it time to feed the chickens…..” Nie Bufan mumbled unconsciously, “Zhang Third, go and feed the chickens…..”

Zhang Third rolled his eyes.

The next day, Nie Bufan ran around the village vigorously and full of energy, dragging along Tu Beng and starting to record the number of fighter chickens, and then sort the numbers into a roster.

There were at least 20 missing chickens, including several heavyweight fighter chickens, such as Gold, which have considerable fighting power.

As a result, Nie Bufan became more at ease. If the missing chickens were of a herbivorous species such as rabbits and deer, then he might have to worry about it. Since they were all carnivores, there was nothing to worry about. However, those unsuspecting people who encounter these scourges might need to count their blessings instead.

On the third night, Nie Bufan spent the night in Wang Shichan’s room. It seemed that he and Zhang Junshi had reached a certain tacit understanding, sharing him every other day, regardless of day and night…..Fortunately, Nie Bufan had a strong recovery ability and was not afraid of having his chrysanthemum poked, not to mention Zhang Third and Wang Fifth regularly helped him maintain it.

“Nothing to ask me?” Wang Shichan asked in a low voice in his ear.

“What?” 

“You asked Zhang Junshi the night before.” He slowly licked his earlobes, the fiery breath lingering behind and causing the other to tremble.

Nie Bufan tilted his head, and said innocently: “What did I ask him? It’s just some bedroom talk for fun.”

Wang Shichan’s mouth twitched a few times. Bedroom talk? Was there such a classification in this guy’s language? As for fun, it was already a blessing if he didn’t spoil the mood!

“You told Zhang Third that I told you a lot of things.” Wang Shichan was unmoved and directly brought up the subject.

“Oh.” Nie Bufan suddenly sighed in melancholy, and said, “You don’t know, I just mentioned your name, and he immediately turned into an animal.”

“Oh?”

“He told me not to mention another man’s name on his bed.” Nie Bufan said helplessly, “But, not only did I mention it, but also many more.”

“Who did you mention?” Wang Shichan asked in a casual tone.

“Everyone I know.” Nie Bufan chuckled slyly.

“Little slippery rascal.” Wang Shichan took a bite on his chest and then entered in one thrust before moving rhythmically.

“Ah…..ngh…..”

“Next time you want to know anything, just ask me directly.”

“You’ll tell me whatever I want to know?”

“I’ll tell you whatever I can.”

“…..Hmmph.”

“Open the door quickly, it’s time for the routine check!” Early in the morning, the divine doctor came to bang at the door.

Wang Shichan opened the door and let him in.

Nie Bufan was still lying on the bed wrapped in a quilt. “Divine Doctor, you have checked for so long, are there any results?”

“Heh heh, of course there is.” The divine doctor touched his beard, pretending to smile profoundly, “I found an amazing secret.”

“What secret?”

The divine doctor raised his chin, with a proud look of “beg me”.

Nie Bufan casted him a look of contempt, and said disdainfully: “What findings can you have? Or do you want to promote your craniotomy theory again?”

“Hey, don’t underestimate me.” The divine doctor was dissatisfied, “I have successfully opened the head of a boar and an elk.”

Nie Bufan stared at him silently.

“Fine, if you don’t, then you don’t.” The divine doctor’s hair stood on end from the other’s stare. He waved his hand and said, “Your pulse condition is gradually stabilizing, especially after you went to bed with your men.”

After a pause, he said again: “But there is one thing worth noting, which is that Wang Gongzi and Zhang Gongzi are not enough to let you be completely safe from a premature death. I suggest you find more men to absorb Yang energy.”

Absorb Yang energy? Did he take him for a spiritual demon? Nie Bufan continued to stare at him.

Wang Shichan was silent, secretly reciting the rebirth mantra. (TN: full name Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra)

“However, the discovery I’m talking about doesn’t refer to this.” The divine doctor suddenly showed a strange expression, and asked in a mysterious manner, “Do you want to know?”

“Nonsense, tell me already!”

The divine doctor glanced at Wang Shichan, then leaned into Nie Bufan’s ear and muttered a few words softly.

“What?” Nie Bufan glared at him with an incredulous face.

The divine doctor nodded and said deeply, “Trust me, I can’t be wrong.”

Nie Bufan also glanced at Wang Shichan and coughed: “Okay, I know, I will pay attention.”

After the divine doctor left, he asked carefully: “Wang Fifth, did you hear what the divine doctor said to me quietly?”

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 )

“No.” Wang Shichan replied indifferently, but a gleam of light flashed in his eyes.

“That’s good.” Nie Bufan laughed dryly a few times, and thought to himself, it seemed that he must pay attention to restraining the amount of lovemaking in the future.

The Cruel Tyrant CH 102 Making A Move

Ye Qingfeng snorted coldly: “Clan Master Xu, if you want to provoke the relationship between me and my fellow martial artists then you should at least find a reliable reason. Do you even believe what you say?”

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 )

Xu Wei stood up slowly and walked back and forth in the courtyard, looking at the guests who came to the wedding banquet as if watching a joke. He said: “Three thousand soldiers from Qingyang County are making their way to the Menghu Mountain to suppress the bandits. Do you all still think Xu is being slanderous?”

There was a sudden commotion in the hall. After all, the Crown Prince’s notoriety had spread far and wide. Even though it had been almost two years since the Crown Prince had killed, no one could guarantee that the Crown Prince would always remain normal. If this time the Crown Prince was really going to kill them on a whim, it was not entirely impossible. Not to mention that these martial arts people had never seen eye to eye with the imperial court and had always provided obstacles for the court.

A middle-aged man walked forward and asked Xu Wei: “What you said is true?”

Xu Wei stared at the middle-aged man and said with a smile: “Whether it is true or not, you can find out yourself. Unless you think I can call over the Qingyang County government’s troops to put up a show for me?”

In half suspicion and half belief, Ye Haolin sent out spies down the mountain to investigate.

Ye Qingfeng continued speaking to Xu Wei: “You just want to provoke our fellow martial artists to oppose the imperial court. Do you think everyone is a fool, Clan Master Xu? That we are up to you to play with however you like?”

Xu Wei smiled and said, “Oh? You sound like you have a guilty conscience. Do you think that no one in the world knows that you are in cahoots with the Crown Prince and intends to entrap our fellow martial artists? I didn’t expect that a traitor like you would appear in Xuefeng Mountain Villa. What an unfilial son, Villa Master Ye.”

The previous middle-aged man looked at Ye Qingfeng suspiciously, and asked Ye Haolin, “What is going on, Villa Master Ye? Originally, it was rumored that Second Eldest Ye Gongzi and the Crown Prince had a very close relationship. We didn’t take it seriously but now shouldn’t you give us a reasonable explanation?”

Ye Haolin naturally did not believe that his son would do such a crazy thing, but he could not guarantee that the Crown Prince would not do something like this though. However, in the current situation he could not directly ask Su Mu in front of everyone. That would be the same as admitting to the accusations and moreover, it might even anger the Crown Prince. If the Crown Prince slaughtered all the people present regardless of whatever, he wouldn’t be able to explain himself even if he had a thousand mouths.

Ye Haolin had no choice but to deny: “It’s just a rumor, I must ask Clan Master Xie to be at ease.”

Xu Wei immediately laughed and said, “Hahahaha…..Villa Master Ye is a really loving father! Actually unwilling to even distinguish between right and wrong.”

Su Mu looked boredly at this group of people chattering, shook the folding fan in his hand and walked out of the crowd, saying: “Clan Master Xu is really idle indeed. Your Baigui Clan kills innocents and commits a lot of evil. The righteous martial artists have always been intolerant of you. So why are you so kindly worried today for your fellow martial artists?”

A trace of lust flashed in Xu Wei’s eyes, staring at Su Mu’s beautiful face he said: “Little brother, the waters of jianghu are deep, how can one easily see through the depths.”

Su Mu raised his eyebrows and smiled as he said, “I am a person with extraordinary talents, and I can tell who is a scumbag at a glance. For example, you are a real and utter scumbag, Clan Master Xu.”

“You…..” Xu Wei flushed red in anger and glared at Su Mu fiercely. He said: “Little boy, you dare to act impertinent in front of Ben Zuo, capture him for me!”

“Yes.” The warrior behind him immediately drew out his sword and stabbed it towards Su Mu.

Ye Qingfeng’s figure moved and he immediately disappeared in place. In an instant, the few warriors who had just pulled out their swords were unable to move any longer. In the blink of an eye, Ye Qingfeng returned to Su Mu’s side and said with an unkind expression: “This place is not your Baigui Clan’s territory, Clan Master Xu. The people here are not ones you can provoke either. If you know what’s good for you then I suggest you piss off.”

Suddenly, while the atmosphere became even more strained, a Jinglin disciple covered in blood rushed in and fell in front of Qin Wanli and Ye Haolin with a “thump”. He said with all his might: “Government soldiers…..attacking…..” But before he could finish speaking, he took his last breath.

Seeing the panicked expressions of everyone in the wedding hall, Xu Wei was secretly happy but expressed regret on the surface: “Xu came here to inform everyone but it’s a pity no one would believe it. Now that the government troops have come and attacked the mountain, Villa Master Ye should not have anything to say, yes?”

Ye Haolin looked up: “What does it matter to me?”

Xu Wei said: “It has already come to this, is it necessary for Villa Master Ye to pretend any longer? Even if you just directly say that you belong to the Crown Prince’s side, who can do anything to you?”

Ye Haolin said angrily: “Surnamed Xu, don’t slander people!”

“Kill…..”

When the shouts arrived, Ye Haolin suddenly stopped and stared fiercely at Su Mu, but Ye Qingfeng stood subtly in front of Su Mu to block the stare. At this moment, Ye Haolin did not have any time to do more, the shouts of killing were already nearing the outside of Jinglin Manor. If they continued to not act they would definitely die today.

Qin Wanli drew out his sword and shouted loudly: “Charge out!” Everyone immediately rushed towards the gates of Jinglin Manor.

Everyone was gone in an instant, and only Su Mu was still standing there. “Darling…..” Ye Qingfeng said anxiously. He was the first to not believe that the government troops were here to kill the martial arts people of jianghu, unless Su Mu’s head was kicked by a donkey. Otherwise, he would definitely not start an internal war on his own while under the siege of the four kingdoms. Wouldn’t that just be cutting a piece of flesh from himself?

“You stay away.” Su Mu said to Ye Qingfeng next to him. He then carelessly threw away the folding fan in his hand. There was still a smile on his face, but there was no warmth in it. The look in his eyes when looking at Xu Wei was like one looking at dead meat.

Ye Qingfeng had never personally seen the Crown Prince going completely mad and on an indiscriminate killing spree, so he did not leave, but directly attacked Xu Wei. But Xu Wei was a powerful martial artist, and although he could not land a hit on Ye Qingfeng, Ye Qingfeng could not hurt him either.

Su Mu swiftly arrived, sweeping a kick at Xu Wei who was fighting with Ye Qingfeng. The other didn’t expect that a young man would have such fast speed and such powerful martial arts inner force. In a moment of carelessness, Xu Wei was kicked by Su Mu and landed on the other side of the wall.

The group of black-robed guards slashed their swords towards Su Mu instantly. Su Mu didn’t even look at them however. He shot out his right hand horizontally like lightning, and accurately pierced through the clothing and skin of one of the black-robed man before the other’s sword could even land, precisely wrapping the still beating heart in his fist. With an audible sound, the still beating heart in Su Mu’s fist bursted into pieces. Afterwards, Su Mu continued to do the same with the rest of the black robed men and in less than half a minute, a couple dozen people in black robes all died from having their hearts crushed to pieces by Su Mu.

While feeling the blood flowing in his body begin to speed up, and the excitement in his mind that could no longer be restrained, Su Mu looked at the blood in his hand in disgust. Why did that idiot Su Mochi like this kind of bloody killing technique? Every time blood would drench him all over, it was incredibly disgusting.

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 )

Su Mu thought this way in his heart, but still did not hesitate and crushed the next person’s heart like it was an instinct.

The Cruel Tyrant CH 101 To Reveal

Towards this seemingly violent punch, Ye Qingfeng didn’t even bother to evade at all. While slipping his hands into Su Mu’s clothes, he gasped in Su Mu’s ears: “Darling, I miss you to death, God, your ass is really smooth…..”

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 )

Su Mu leaned against the wall with flushed cheeks. He put his hands against Ye Qingfeng’s hard chest and said, “Asshole, stop! Your father is still outside, don’t you care?”

Ye Qingfeng pulled the clothes over Su Mu’s chest apart, licked it, and breathed heavily, “I’ll go out again when they start to fight, now I’m going in first for a round.”

The place where they were now was only a small corner behind the wedding hall, and so long as someone passed by they would be able to see them at any time. Su Mu had no intentions of performing a live erotic show for others, but he couldn’t really hurt Ye Qingfeng either. As a result, this rogue got bolder and bolder. Seeing that the final line of defense was about to fall, Su Mu couldn’t think of anything more and circulated his inner force to push back Ye Qingfeng. The two of them instantly changed positions. Ye Qingfeng’s two thievish hands still wanted to continue touching but was immediately held by Su Mu and pressed down over his head. Ye Qingfeng took the opportunity to rub Su Mu with his hard lower half, licking Su Mu’s soft earlobe and saying: “Darling, you want to do it yourself?”

“Shut up!” Su Mu said viciously: “Do you have nothing but this kind of thing in your head?”

“Second brother!” A voice suddenly came from behind, and Su Mu was taken aback. As soon as he turned his head, he saw Ye Qingchen whose face was as dark as the bottom of a pot. Su Mu hurriedly let go of Ye Qingchen and turned around to tidy up his clothes. In contrast, Ye Qingfeng tugged his rumpled red wedding robes calmly and unhurriedly.

“Elder brother.” Ye Qingfeng greeted as if nothing had happened.

Ye Qingchen clenched his fists. He stared at Su Mu angrily and asked, “Is he the Crown Prince?”

The tone was very affirmative, and Ye Qingfeng also admitted frankly: “Yes.

Su Mu turned his back to him, gritted his teeth and fastened his belt. He felt that he had no face to meet people anymore, but he still had to face up to the situation at hand. Su Mu turned around with a slightly blushing face and said: “I am Su Mochi, much offence just now…..”

Ye Qingchen resisted the desire to commit violence and questioned Su Mu: “Does Your Royal Highness think you can do whatever you want with anyone anywhere? Although I am not your opponent, if you force my second brother like this, then even if I, Ye Qingchen, must give up my life, I will still demand Your Highness for an explanation!”

Su Mu: “…..” Who is forcing who! Fuck! It was just that Su Mu didn’t have the face to pull at Ye Qingchen’s neck and shout that he was the one who was being pressed down, and he could only silently carry this black pot.

Seeing Su Mu’s “calm and direct look” and expression of “what can you do to me”, Ye Qingchen almost vomited blood. Biting his molars and moving his eyes away, he grabbed Ye Qingfeng and walked out. Ye Qingfeng hurriedly grabbed Su Mu’s hands and the three of them went out together.

There were already the fierce sounds of metal crashing against metal outside the wedding hall. A person wearing a black robe and with his face hidden was fighting with the big guy who had previously spoken to Su Mu. The big guy was very strong, and a big pit appeared wherever his footsteps fell. The black robed man had very bizarre and tricky movements, and the big man couldn’t land a hit on him at all, the two remaining in a stalemate.

Su Mu stood at the back of the crowd and carefully observed the battlefield. Ye Qingfeng slowly approached Su Mu and quietly hugged his waist as he said, “Darling, did you already know he was going to come?”

“En.” Su Mu nodded and said, “He was appointed by Princess Hongyun to come and expose your relationship with me.”

Ye Qingfeng raised his eyebrows. He had never deliberately concealed it, but he did not explicitly announce it either. The rumors in jianghu were only rumors in the end, but if they were confirmed, it would be troublesome. Earlier, Ye Qingfeng helped Su Mu gather the forces of jianghu and recruited several sects to prevent others from opposing the imperial court. During this period, he had been using the identity of a jianghu person. Now if it suddenly broke out that he was having an affair with the Crown Prince, it would indeed be troublesome.

“Then why don’t you stop it?” Ye Qingfeng asked in Su Mu’s ear, taking the opportunity to lick and nibble it.

Su Mu gave him a sideways glance: “I just rushed here as soon as I received the news, where do I have the time to stop it?” There was not enough time to dispatch troops over, and if he went personally to lead the army there was also the matter of Ye Qingfeng being married off, so Su Mu could only arrive here first.

Ye Qingfeng smiled wickedly, and said: “Darling, you are so kind to me, I will repay you well tonight.” Ye Qingfeng stroked the attractive curve of Su Mu’s waist with his right hand, and asked: “Darling, what do we do now?”

A cold light flashed in Su Mu’s eyes: “The troops will arrive two hours later. Since they dare to collude with the enemy, they must have the consciousness of facing death.”

Ye Qingfeng keenly caught the word ‘enemy’. “Did she make trouble for you?” Ye Qingfeng asked.

Su Mu had a headache and said: “Chen, Zheng, Wu, Yang, don’t know what benefits these four kingdoms had taken from her, but they suddenly joined forces to attack the Qing Kingdom, and at the same time incited Xu Wei to provoke an internal war in jianghu.”

“Actually daring to bully my darling, watch how I’ll deal with them.” Ye Qingfeng quickly kissed Su Mu’s face and squeezed out the crowd to Ye Haolin’s side.

Seeing Ye Qingfeng whose pressure points were unsealed, Ye Haolin knew that things were over for definite now, and snorted coldly: “Stand on the side.” He then saw Su Mu’s close arrival and his expression became even more ugly. Su Mu had no choice but to pretend to have not seen it.

Sitting at the front door and surrounded by guards, Xu Wei’s expression turned sinister as soon as he saw Ye Qingfeng appear. He said with a half-smile: “Second Eldest Ye Gongzi is really a handsome and charming talent. No wonder you can captivate the Crown Prince.”

One after another, strange looks fell on the Ye family. Ye Haolin’s angry face turned blue, but Ye Qingfeng’s expression finally had a bit of pride, looking more like a bridegroom than before. When Ye Haolin saw the look on Ye Qingfeng’s face he really wanted to slap him to death.

Just what the hell was this? It was understandable raising a daughter and attracting covetousness, but raising a son and still attracting covetousness?!

Ye Haolin moved his gaze away from Su Mu and said to Xu Wei: “When did Clan Master Xu learn to be as gossipy as the shrewd women in the markets.”

The fingers curling his hair paused and Xu Wei sat up straight and looked at Ye Haolin as he said: “Whether Ben Zuo is speaking falsity or the truth, Villa Master Ye can’t be more clear. It’s just a pity that Xuefeng Mountain Villa’s century-old reputation is actually going to be ruined in Villa Master Ye’s hands.”

“Tch.” Ye Qingfeng walked to stand next to Ye Haolin and said with a sneer: “It’s not for you to comment on the matter of our Xuefeng Villa, you freak, so hurry up and piss off to wherever you came from.”

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 )

Xu Wei’s expression changed abruptly. He stood up violently and said to Ye Qingfeng: “Then who do you think you are? Hmmph, deliberately leading the people of jianghu into a dangerous situation, Ye Qingfeng, what are your motives!”

The Cruel Tyrant CH 100 Crashing The Venue

Su Mu replied: “I am just a nameless nobody not worth mentioning.”

The big man raised his hand and was about to continue speaking when he caught a glimpse of everyone gathering in the hall. Among them, a young man who was somewhat similar in appearance to Ye Qingfeng was exchanging greetings with the guests.

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 )

This should be Ye Qingfeng’s elder brother. Su Mu sat in the corner silently and did not plan to go forward for a chat.

However, Ye Qingchen was unable not to notice Su Mu’s figure at a glance. Su Mu’s appearance was too outstanding. Today’s guests were mostly people from jianghu. It was not to say that there were none with eye-catching appearances, but few were like Su Mu with such a captivating appearance and such a powerful aura. Moreover those people were all familiar faces. Su Mu was like a big light lit in the dark so it was difficult for Ye Qingchen not to pay attention. He finished chatting with a group of guests, then went straight to Su Mu’s table, and said in a genteel and polite manner: “I am Ye Qingchen, may I ask for this brother’s surname?”

Su Mu returned the courtesy and said: “I am Su Mu, I have long admired the name of Eldest Ye Gongzi, and it is my fortune to finally see you today.”

Last name Su? Ye Qingchen’s heart suddenly skipped a beat in alarm, could it be that the one in the imperial city came in person? Ye Qingchen felt a thin layer of sweat covering his back, and the smile on his face became stiff. Was it too late to evacuate the guests? If most of the affluent people of jianghu died here today, wouldn’t their Xuefeng Villa and Jinglin be finished?

“You…..”

“Brother Ye, what’s wrong?” Su Mu interrupted Ye Qingchen, who had finally spoopened his mouth with difficulty, with a puzzled look, and continued to ask: “Are you feeling ill?”

“No, no, I’m fine.” Ye Qingchen let out a breath in a hurry, secretly thinking that he was just scaring himself, how could the Crown Prince come here himself. Even if he came, according to the Crown Prince’s style of behavior he would just directly kill the people and snatch Ye Qingfeng away. How could it be possible that he would just sit here and introduce himself with a fake name?

At this moment, there was a commotion at the door, and the couple of the day slowly walked in from the door. When they walked in some more Su Mu finally saw through the crowd that Ye Qingfeng was being supported by someone as he walked. Ye Qingchen said to Su Mu with a joyful expression: “The new couple has arrived, please come to the inner hall with me to observe the ceremony, brother Su.”

Su Mu quirked the corners of his mouth and said, “Fine.” After speaking, he stood up and looked at Ye Qingfeng, who was surrounded by the crowd and dressed as a bridegroom, with a sword-like gaze.

Ye Qingfeng, who was being supported as forward, felt cold sweat sprout on his back and couldn’t help but feel startled. Looking sideways, he saw Su Mu standing with his elder brother. That face that haunted his days and nights currently had a smile on that caused his hair to stand on end. But at this time, not only did his sealed pressure points immobilize movement it also muted his voice. He couldn’t speak at all and he could only blink his eyes at Su Mu, but Su Mu seemed like he did not see it at all and along with the crowd he entered the hall with Ye Qingchen to observe the ceremony.

Ye Qingfeng was so anxious that the back of his wedding robes became soaked with sweat, and he didn’t know what this little unscrupulous and heartless guy was up to, not even making a movement at all even now. Did he really want to watch him get married with someone else?

At this time, he was already standing in the middle of the hall, waiting to be called to complete the wedding rites. Ye Qingfeng remained stiff and uncompromising, causing Ye Haolin to glare at Ye Qingfeng. If not for the fact that the newlyweds would be entering the bridal room afterwards perhaps he would have instantly jumped up and given him a good beating. But at this moment, he suddenly saw a slightly familiar figure, and Ye Haolin stood up violently in shock.

Madam Ye and the bride’s father, Qin Wanli, also stood up abruptly. Qin Wanli vigilantly asked in a low voice, “What’s wrong, brother Ye?”

“He’s here.” Ye Haolin stared at Su Mu, the latter flashing him a bright smile.

Qin Wanli’s heart skipped a beat and he said with disbelief, “What? He’s here!”

Ye Haolin nodded and signaled Qin Wanli not to do anything. Even if everyone here went up against the Crown Prince the outcome would still not be in their favor. In any case, the other hadn’t made a move yet, so it was best to complete the wedding rituals first.

The wedding presider on the side received a sign and hurriedly raised his voice and shouted: “Bow first to heaven and earth…..”

Ye Qingfeng stiffened his neck and stubbornly refused to bow his head. Ye Haolin clenched his fists anxiously and kept gesturing with his eyes at the person behind Ye Qingfeng, signaling him to press Ye Qingfeng down quickly.

Su Mu smiled slightly and flicked his fingers at the pressure point of the person behind Ye Qingfeng, immediately making him unable to move. Ye Haolin was also a martial arts expert and immediately noticed it. He glared at Su Mu then gestured at Ye Qingchen with his eyes and said: “You go.”

Ye Qingchen looked at his angry father, and then at the equally angry Ye Qingfeng, and was finally defeated under his father’s gaze. Pretending to not see Ye Qingfeng’s angry glare he pressed against his neck, whispering in Ye Qingfeng’s ear: “Even at this stage, that person still hasn’t made any movements. Give up, you should have understood already that he does not lack men. So why do you wrong yourself like this? Just properly finish the wedding rituals.”

You know a fart, let me go! Ye Qingfeng motioned with his eyes.

There was a stalemate for a long time, and the eyes of everyone present also gradually changed. Thinking of the rumors spreading outside, many people’s eyes began to take on a gossipy light, and the bride with a veil next to Ye Qingfeng also squeezed the red handkerchief in her hand anxiously.

“What are you waiting for, hurry up!” Ye Haolin whisper-shouted to Ye Qingchen, and then to the presider: “Start again.”

The presider had no choice but to raise his voice and shout again: “Bow first to…..”

However, the presider had yet to even finish speaking when his voice was overwhelmed by a burst of wild and arrogant laughter.

“Hahahahahaha…..Xu has arrived late to Second Eldest Ye Gongzi’s wedding, Xu must ask Villa Master Ye and Hero Qin to not be offended…..”

This voice was very penetrating and came from far away and clearly heard by everyone’s ears. Ye Haolin and Qin Wanli stood up at the same time, and Su Mu also turned to the source of the voice along with everyone present.

On the courtyard wall outside the door suddenly appeared a middle-aged man with white hair but the delicate skin of a baby. His eyes swept the crowd like steel needles, and suddenly his attention was caught by Su Mu. His fingers curled his sideburns and looked at Su Mu with obscene eyes: “I didn’t expect that there would be such a delicious little guy in this remote place, when finished with matters Ben Zuo must have a good taste.” (TN: Ben Zuo, self-reference used by jianghu masters, similar to the Ben Gong used by imperial members)

Ye Haolin walked out of the crowd and looked at the middle-aged man standing on the wall. His expression was unkind and he said: “Clan Master Xu, it is my son’s big wedding today and it is not suitable to take up arms. If Clan Master Xu has any suggestions, please come back another day.”

In the blink of an eye the middle-aged man appeared in the courtyard, and at the same time a group of people in black cloaks also swarmed in through the door. Xu Wenxiu shook the dust that did not exist from his clothes, and sat down leisurely on a stool placed by his subordinate. He sneered: “I think today can’t be better, it’s just right for a fight.”

In the middle of the hall, Ye Qingfeng still had his pressure points sealed and could only stand there like a stump of wood. Ye Qingchen saw Su Mu approaching and said kindly: “Brother Su…..”

But before he even finished speaking, he saw Su Mu quickly unlock Ye Qingfeng’s pressure points. He couldn’t even stop him even if he wanted to. Ye Qingfeng, who was finally released, grabbed Su Mu’s wrist and the two disappeared in front of Ye Qingchen in the blink of an eye.

At the back of the wedding hall, Ye Qingfeng kept one ear out to the movement outside while pressing Su Mu under his body and sucked fiercely on the other’s lips. Su Mu punched him and said angrily: “Get off!”

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 074 The Memories From Before The Age Of Five

TN: bonus chapter💕

Gao Yonghuai made this phone call to Tao Mu because in addition to whistleblowing, he naturally had a little bit of gossipy interest.

The development momentum of FlyNews had been too strong recently, and Tao Mu was not pleasing to everyone in the industry. Some were just waiting for Tao Mu to trip up and faceplant.

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 )

However, it was going a bit overboard to make a fuss about one’s background. Not to mention that Tao Mu was only five years old. Even if there was something wrong, one remark “children do not understand” could turn the situation around. So even if Gao Yonghuai heard the news, he just felt that the methods of the perpetrator behind the scenes were too dark and ruthless, and Tao Mu was a bit unlucky with little villains recently. He didn’t have any thoughts of throwing stones at Tao Mu however.

Of course, it was a good show to see the young and successful CEO Tao in a headache when he was feeling idle.

“It seems that CEO Tao has come across an unlucky spot and offended a villain.” On the other end of the phone, Gao Yonghuai suggested in a leisurely manner: “I heard that the incense in the Great Buddha Temple is very good. CEO Tao might want to burn incense and pray to Buddha to get rid of the bad luck?”

“Many thanks to CEO Gao for the suggestion, I will consider it.” After putting down the phone, Tao Mu rubbed his face weakly.

“What’s wrong?” Meng Qi walked to Tao Mu and patted Tao Mu on the shoulder: “Whose call was it?”

“CEO Gao from Weibo.” Tao Mu glanced at the FlyNews employees around him, and smiled bitterly: “Let’s go back and talk about it later.”

Meng Qi saw that Tao Mu’s mood was not good, and immediately took Tao Mu home.

On the way back, Tao Mu closed his eyes and leaned against the window of the co-pilot seat. The flickering neon lights outside the window shone on his face, and the radiant light and shadow casted his outline deeper.

Tao Mu recalled his situation before the age of five.

He told Li Xiaoheng that he had a high fever when he was five years old, and he couldn’t remember the past.

Actually it was not true.

Tao Mu still had a little impression of things before the age of five. He vaguely remembered that his adoptive parents had treated him well.

Tao Mu’s adoptive parents were an infertile couple. Dean Tao said that at that time Tao Mu had just been sent to the orphanage. Because he was good-looking, he didn’t like to cry, and he was still a young child, many couples wanted to adopt him. Dean Tao thought carefully and finally handed Tao Mu to his adoptive parents. She felt that this couple could give Tao Mu a normal family environment and let Tao Mu grow up healthy.

The development was also as Dean Tao expected. After the couple adopted Tao Mu, they were very kind to Tao Mu. At least Tao Mu didn’t know that he was not the biological child of his parents before he was five years old. Only occasionally, when Tao Mu was playing with the neighbors’ children in the neighborhood, he could always hear the neighboring aunts talking with his parents that the child they picked up was quite smart. Tao Mu went back and asked his parents what was a picked up child? His adoptive parents put their arms around Tao Mu and said that he was a child picked up from the garbage dump.

Later, Tao Mu asked other friends in the neighborhood and found that everyone had been picked up from the garbage dump.

Four years of good days passed. The couple who adopted Tao Mu also happened to have the surname Tao, so they didn’t change Tao Mu’s name. They only gave him a nickname called Xiao Bao. It meant mom and dad’s little treasure.

It was a pity that an adopted child won’t ever compare to a biological child. Probably in the summer of the fourth year of adopting him, Tao Mu’s adoptive mother accidentally discovered that she was pregnant. This surprise made his adoptive father and mother especially happy, and Tao Mu was also happy. He actually liked children very much and hoped that his parents would give him a younger brother.

But soon, the attitude of his adoptive father and mother towards Tao Mu changed. The couple who once regarded Tao Mu as their own son and held him preciously in the palm of their hands began to feel dislike towards Tao Mu. They began to complain that he was too noisy and annoying. They would push him around and hit him once or twice at every turn, and never hugged him anymore.

Tao Mu didn’t know what was going on at that time, only knew that his parents hated his naughtiness and didn’t like him, so he didn’t dare to make a noise or make a fuss. However, now his adoptive parents felt that it was not a good thing that Tao Mu had such a gloomy temperament at such a young age.

After his younger brother was born, his adoptive mother guarded against him more and more. Tao Mu vaguely remembered that his adoptive mother refused to let him into the bedroom for fear that he would hurt his younger brother. So Tao Mu would lean on the window outside the bedroom, his face pressed against the glass, watching his adoptive mother hold his younger brother in her arms, pat him tenderly, and nurse him.

His younger brother was just a few months old, so small, dark and not good-looking at all. But his crying was particularly loud. Tao Mu felt that his younger brother was very cute, like the little black wolf dog in the neighbor’s house. The hair was soft, and the body was warm when he hugged it.

Tao Mu used to feed it ham. But since his younger brother was born, he had no milk to drink, no cakes to eat, and his parents didn’t buy him ham sausages anymore as well. But the big wolf dog from the neighbor’s house still clung to him.

It would be nice if his younger brother could also cling to him like that.

Tao Mu felt that he could be without new clothes and toys and just play with his younger brother, which was good as well.

Unfortunately, his adoptive father and adoptive mother never let him approach his younger brother. One day, his adoptive father was working outside and his adoptive mother was washing clothes in the yard. His younger brother in the bedroom suddenly began to cry. Tao Mu, who was squatting in the corner of the yard, hurriedly dropped the branch in his hand and ran into the room to look at his younger brother.

His younger brother, such a small little thing, with small arms and legs, was wrapped in a small quilt. The black face was flushed from crying, and his nose was also bubbling with snot.

Tao Mu leaned forward and carefully touched his younger brother’s cheek with his finger.

Soft and smooth, like the cake his adoptive mother used to make for him. Very tender.

His adoptive mother who was sitting in the yard washing clothes heard the crying and hurried in. She saw Tao Mu standing next to his crying younger brother. She came in and threw a slap without asking anything. Insisting that he had hurt his younger brother.

The small Tao Mu was slapped dumbfounded by his adoptive mother. His tender fair little face was covered with a red palm print as he cried and explained that he did not hit his younger brother. He didn’t make his younger brother cry.

His adoptive mother didn’t listen. She picked up his younger brother and scolded him viciously. While scolding, she picked up the feather duster and beat him with it. She scolded him for being an ungrateful wretch, scolded him for having a cruel heart, scolded him for being vicious at such a young age, and predicted that he would commit crimes in the future. The neighbors who lived in the same neighborhood couldn’t bear it and came over to persuade her. Someone helped Tao Mu explain that Tao Mu really just ran in when he heard crying from the house. Immediately afterwards, his adoptive mother also followed, so Tao Mu had no time to do anything to his younger brother. His adoptive mother was stopped by so many people and had no choice but to bitterly put down the feather duster in her hand, but she still stood in the bedroom yelling viciously.

An old grandmother next door took Tao Mu to her house and gave him white rabbit toffee candy. Holding her arms around him and sighing that a child without a father or mother had a difficult life.

Tao Mu didn’t know his birth background at that time, so he naively argued that he had a father and mother. The old lady cried with her arms around him.

When his adoptive father came back from work in the evening his adoptive mother dragged him into the bedroom, and the two of them remained locked up in the bedroom for a long time to discuss. When they came out, they said they would take Tao Mu out to play.

Tao Mu was too young at the time, and he was very happy to hear that his parents were going to take him out to play. But the result was that his adoptive parents only sent him back to the orphanage.

Tao Mu remembered that it was raining heavily that day, and he was just thrown directly at the door of the orphanage by his adoptive parents. He watched his adoptive father rush off into the rain in the family van. The rain that day was so heavy, like a curtain of beads, pouring down so hard he could not open his eyes. Tao Mu stood crying at the door of the orphanage, crying for a long time but no one noticed. His throat was cried hoarse.

It seemed that it was only until the next morning, did the worker who came out to buy vegetables saw Tao Mu lying on the ground. Shocked, she quickly called Dean Tao out.

Dean Tao took him in and asked who he was and why he stayed at the door of the orphanage all night?

Tao Mu said that his name was Tao Mu, and he was thrown at the door of the orphanage by his parents. He also reported the names of his parents to Dean Tao.

Dean Tao remembered Tao Mu and his adoptive parents, and she knew immediately what happened. Because Tao Mu’s adoptive parents registered various procedures when adopting Tao Mu, dean Tao led Tao Mu across half of the city of Beijing to find his adoptive parents.

But they were blocked by his adoptive mother at the gate of the neighborhood and prevented from entering. Dean Tao asked Tao Mu’s adoptive mother why she threw him at the door of the orphanage and threatened Tao Mu’s adoptive parents to sue them for abandonment. Tao Mu’s adoptive mother yelled that Tao Mu had abused her child at such a young age. They dared not keep Tao Mu, lest Tao Mu would harm their biological son.

She also said something like the “Minor Protection Law” protected child murderers. Tao Mu had a vicious personality at a young age so they dared not take their son’s life seriously.

The neighbors in the same neighborhood couldn’t bear to hear this, and some helped speak out for Tao Mu. But every word of help was thrown back by Tao Mu’s adoptive mother.

“Your words sound very nice, why don’t you raise him then?”

“This is raising a child, not only must you provide him with food and clothing and education, but also support him in marrying a wife and having children in the future. Do you think it is to raise a cat or a dog? Do you think it doesn’t cost money?”

“I have a biological son, why should I raise someone else’s son instead? His parents don’t want him, so why ask me, an irrelevant outsider, to raise him instead? I have already raised him for five years for no good cause, which is already very good of me.”

The adoptive parents who once loved you like a pearl, but after having their own son, they abandon you like a worn out shoe and loathe you like an obstacle.

Tao Mu also learned from that day that he was really not the biological son of his parents. So his parents were not obligated to support him for life.

In this world, only biological parents would treat their children unconditionally and unreservedly. However, not long after Tao Mu was born, he was abandoned in a rental house by his biological mother.

He was a child not wanted even by his biological parents.

Later Tao Mu followed dean Tao back to the orphanage. Before leaving, his adoptive mother packed Tao Mu’s things, including some clothes and toys, as well as the birthday photos from the photo studio they took Tao Mu every year on his birthday.

“Even though I am not your biological mother, I still raised you for a while. I gave you all that could be given to you. Don’t blame me. You can only blame yourself for your bad luck. Even your biological mother did not want you. Not to mention us outsiders.”

The parents who used to coax him to eat and sleep with their arms around him became outsiders. Holding his toy wooden gun and photos, Tao Mu cried all the way back to the orphanage with dean Tao. That night he had a high fever.

After waking up, he no longer remembered the past.

Later, he went to H Town to be an extra, and accidentally learned that he actually had biological parents. His parents did not deliberately abandon him in a rental house. Everything was a misunderstanding.

Tao Mu remembered what his adoptive mother had said: Only biological parents would treat their children unconditionally well. They would stand on their side without any reason, something outsiders could not do.

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 )

However, Tao Mu’s biological parents were not good to him. They treated him as nothing, treated him as an enemy.

Tao Mu therefore felt that perhaps in this life, he was fated to be without biological parents and other blood related family.

After The Vicious Cannon Fodder Was Reborn CH 073 To Shed All Pretense Of Cordiality

Yao Shengan didn’t expect things to become like this at first.

Yao Wenxiao was detained by the police for fifteen days for hiring thugs. Yao Shengan originally thought that as the chairman of the Sheng’an Group, he could easily release his grandson on bail. But the result, it was discovered at the police station that the police refused Yao Shengan’s bail offer on the grounds that the incident of Yao Wenxiao hiring thugs to beat people was fermented too quickly on the Internet, was paid attention to by too many news media, and caused too much bad influence. Yao Wenxiao must stay in the detention center for fifteen days. Family members were not allowed to visit during this period.

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 Shengan knew that Yao Wenxiao had been pampered since he was a child, and was worried that his precious grandson would not be able to bear the suffering, so he asked the lawyer to find a solution as soon as possible.

However, although Sheng’an Group was the leading catering industry in Shanghai, it had no influence in Beijing. What was more, Yao Wenxiao’s case was personally reported by the Li family’s eldest son. The so-called strong dragon could not suppress the local snake, Yao Shengan visited and asked around the contacts he had in Beijing, even begging some business partners with their company’s headquarters in Beijing, but ultimately failed to get Yao Wenxiao out in advance.

As a last resort, Yao Shengan had to call Tao Mu, saying a bunch of things that made people feel tired after hearing them, and even the ears would grow callus: “…..Anyone can make mistakes, so one must forgive them when possible. CEO Tao’s decisive means, this old man has witnessed it now. Today I will give up this old face, and ask you to please let Wen Xiao go. If you agree, I will immediately return to Shanghai with Wen Xiao and not set even half a foot in the capital. The old things in the past, we can both write off. From now on, Wen Xiao and you Tao Mu will naturally not have any contact. I will no longer pursue you for deliberately digging holes to frame Wen Xiao.”

Yao Shengan was old and cunning, and he could naturally see that on the matter of Yao Wenxiao bribing the media to smear Tao Mu, Liu Yao had already set a trap in advance. In his opinion, Yao Wenxiao being unable to bear the moment of anger after learning the truth, and found someone to teach that Da Hui a lesson was just an act of a hotblooded young man. Although acting impulsively, it was excusable.

As for Liu Yao and Tao Mu themselves, Yao Shengan had never given them much regard. In fact, if it were not for the existence of Li Xiaoheng and the Li family, Yao Shengan would not even let Tao Mu go so easily.

In his opinion, even if Tao Mu knew about his old affairs with the Song family, what could he do? This world had always adhered to the belief that “a general achieves greatness over ten thousand withered bones.” The Song family fell because there was no one capable in the Song family. He, Yao Shengan, could reach this day with his ability, and he could start from scratch to create the huge Sheng’an Group so naturally he was not afraid of gossip.

Therefore, even if Tao Mu directly exposed the old affairs between him and the Song family on FlyNews, in Yao Shengan’s view, it was just to provide some after-dinner chats for those little common people. Being criticized would not make him lose his skin, and it would not affect the status of Sheng’an Group in the industry.

As for Li Xiaoheng’s threat, although it was a bit troublesome. But that said, for those like him who do business in the industry, the stock market was just the icing on the cake. So long as the company was running well and the stock price did not fluctuate much, it would not affect the actual operation of the company.

What was more, no one could say what exactly Li Xiaoheng could do for Tao Mu. After all, the two were just business partners who had known each other for less than half a year. How much was the friendship worth if they haven’t even seen each other a few times? The businessman highly valued profit, and anyone could give vernacular support by making a few empty words. When things happen, Li Xiaoheng might not be willing to come up with real money to fight him.

Yao Shengan used his own mindset to judge others, so naturally he had no fear. So when he faced Tao Mu, he didn’t conceal his sense of superiority in using his strength to bully the weak. Even if he was calling to ask for a truce, he would not bow his head. In his words, it was very clear that he was making threats and promises, taking advantage of Tao Mu for his youth and lower capital to bully him.

If Tao Mu was really 18 years old, towards Yao Shengan’s attitude, he very well might be extremely pissed off. Unfortunately he was not.

“What does Mr. Yao mean by this?” Tao Mu pretended to ask in confusion: “Yao Wenxiao hired thugs to beat someone and violated the law and order punishment regulations and was detained by the police in accordance with the law. Although I think this result is very pleasing, in this matter it is really not something I can control. I’m different from your Yao family. Your Yao family relies on your family’s big business and can do everything and dare to do everything regardless of laws and regulations. I, Tao Mu, am a small commoner. I have to be law-abiding and conscientious. I really don’t understand what you meant by making this call today?”

Yao Shengan sneered after hearing this: “Surnamed Tao, I advise you to not take it too far. Don’t be ungrateful. Do you really think that Li Xiaoheng can protect you for the rest of your life?”

“I don’t understand these words of yours even more.” Tao Mu still smiled, unashamedly pissing off the other: “I walk upright and sit upright and never do things that violate the law and order. Naturally, there is no need for anyone to protect me. Mr. Yao, if you have any methods, then you can go ahead and use it. But I would advise you here, you are already old, so your thinking and actions are inevitably old school. But if you are still thinking about using that old set of methods to ruin people, it will not work now.”

This was the first time Tao Mu mentioned his grudges with Song Ji in front of Yao Shengan. Yao Shengan’s expression sank: “Why, do you think you can stand up for the Song family with just your ability?”

“So what if I do?” Tao Mu responded tit-for-tat: “Mr. Yao has committed so many shameful deeds, yet you can sit back and relax. The Song family can’t. The Song family’s many lives will not agree. Since I have recognized Mr. Song as my grandfather, this blood debt of the Song family will naturally be taken up by me.”

“Very good.” Yao Shengan laughed in anger: “I want to see, just how do you plan to stand up for the Song family, and how can you stand up for the Song family?”

The two ended the call in disagreement.

Tao Mu hung up the phone, turned around and went to class. After class, he went to the next-door broadcasting and hosting department, and begged the professor to help him find a dubbing that met the requirements. In addition, Tao Mu also wanted to find a teacher with a profound cultural heritage to help write the script for the food show “Life in the City: Food for the People”.

Tao Mu started creating FlyNews as soon as he enrolled in school. Now this seemingly small site was getting bigger and bigger. As the founder, Tao Mu naturally received different treatment from the teachers and students.

What was more, even though Tao Mu’s business was becoming bigger, he never missed class or asked for leave, and his performance in the courses of his major was even more outstanding. A universal truth in the education field was that all teachers like hard-working and high-achieving students. Tao Mu met this standard no matter how one looked at it.

Of course, the teachers who appreciate Tao Mu’s student ethics were willing to help Tao Mu solve problems. But when the professor of the drama department took over the program planning book written by Tao Mu and read it from the beginning, he suddenly became a little confused: “Is this a drama script or a program plan? Do you want to make a TV series or a food show?”

“I just want to make a food show similar to a reality show documentary.”

In Tao Mu’s planning book, this program revolved around Song Ji, which was opened in the Houhai neighborhood. The work of the program crew was to follow the daily life of Mr. Song, get up early to buy food, open the restaurant, cook the ingredients while telling the historical origin of each dish, what kind of story each dish had in history, and then extend it to the restaurant’s guests, what kind of stories each guest had when they ate this dish, and even tell the stories of the neighbors in the neighborhood. And then finally bring the main theme to the owner of the restaurant, Mr. Song, and draw out the story of Mr. Song.

In Tao Mu’s setup, this food show could be made in the form of a unit drama. The reason why Tao Mu did this was to make more viewers feel connected. In this way, when he called on netizens to boycott the hotels under the Sheng’an Group, he could arouse more people’s support.

Of course, this part of the plan would definitely not be written in the planning book for others to see.

“Your project is a bit big.” With his professional sensitivity, the professor of the drama department immediately realized Tao Mu’s ambitious plans: “You want to make a food show with emotions and heritage. Then you need more than just narration and copywriting, you still need screenwriters and actors.”

Tao Mu frowned and said seriously: “I haven’t thought about using professional actors. I think it would be more realistic to let the show crew film the stories of the diners. If professional actors are used in the role, the audience will see those familiar faces and will not have such a strong sense of connection.”

“But ordinary diners don’t have enough expressive power in front of the camera. Can they shoot the feeling you want?” The drama professor was very interested in Tao Mu’s plan: “I think you can cooperate with the school. You can let your senior brothers and sisters appear on the show. They are professional actors and have received professional training, but they don’t have much experience in acting. They are fully in line with your needs.”

The drama professor seemed to be able to see Tao Mu’s concerns and added: “As for the sense of reality and connection you want, we can use the documentary method to shoot this show. You mentioned reality show, right? We use the diners’ stories and allow some real diners to appear on the scene, and you can make a statement afterwards that this show is completely adapted from real people. I don’t think it will affect the audience’s sense of connection too much. After all, you have to consider that emotional expression is also part of the sense of connection invoked in the audience.”

Tao Mu pondered thoughtfully. The drama professor also didn’t force it: “How about this. You can go back and think about it. On my side, I will help you contact the broadcasting side and copywriting. According to your requirements, ordinary teachers will definitely not be able to do this job. I will find a way to help you contact Mr. Bai Anbai, who used to be the host of the National Channel. His voice is very mellow, and his vicissitudes should meet your requirements for the atmosphere of this show. As for the copywriting, I can help introduce you to Pu Lincang, Teacher Pu. He once wrote a series of essays on Beijing street food. His writing style should be able to meet your needs, right?”

Tao Mu was overjoyed and nodded again and again: “Definitely. Thank you, Professor Cen.”

Cen Wen waved his hand and smiled: “You are welcome. Helping students solve problems is what we should do as teachers.”

Tao Mu smiled shyly. After coming out of Professor Cen’s office, Tao Mu received a call from Meng Qi: “…..The Internet Observer wants to interview me?”

The “Internet Observer” was a well-known journal in China’s Internet industry. As the name suggests, it liked to interpret the development of China’s Internet industry from the perspective of Internet development, and thus extend to the development of China’s business and economy. Because the content of their reports tend to be commercial and entertaining, it was much loved by readers. It could be said to be a weekly popular science magazine with a relatively wide range of influence.

Tao Mu thought about it for a while and felt that accepting an interview with the “Internet Observer” would also help FlyNews’ publicity, so he immediately agreed.

Considering Tao Mu’s student status, the “Internet Observer” thoughtfully scheduled the interview at six o’clock in the evening, at the headquarters of FlyNews.

Before starting the interview, the reporter of the “Internet Observer” also obtained the consent of Tao Mu to take a tour around the headquarters of FlyNews and interviewed the workers in working areas except the technical department and other confidential departments under the name of “increasing the publicity for your recruitment pitches.”

Because FlyNews had its own big killer weapon, FlyNews Entertainment, and the lessons learned from more than a dozen colleagues who had discredited Tao Mu, the Internet Observer’s attitude was very friendly from the beginning. The interview process that followed was naturally a pleasant one.

At the end of the interview, reporters from the “Internet Observer” said that they also wanted to record a little bit of footage and asked some light-hearted questions. Most of the questions were asked by netizens they collected on the Internet.

“Do you have a girlfriend, Tao Mu?”

Tao Mu laughed: “No.”

“Then what is your ideal girlfriend?”

Tao Mu continued to laugh: “I don’t have any ideals.”

The female reporter of the “Internet Observer” also laughed: “How can it not be possible, you don’t have to be shy.”

“Really not.” Tao Mu shook his head. He liked men and naturally did not have ideals for girlfriends: “I just don’t think that you should limit yourself too much on this kind of thing. When fate has arrived, you will naturally know that it is that person. Say, if you set a lot of conditions in advance, but the person you meet is different from what you described, then what do you do?”

The female reporter of the “Internet Observer” suddenly laughed: “CEO Tao, you are so devious.”

“This is not a question of devious or not devious.” Tao Mu smiled and offered the single dogs among the public advice: “This is the desire to survive, okay? What if the person you like is particularly jealous? So don’t make trouble for yourself beforehand…..”

“Well alright then, one last question.” The female reporter recited from a card: “Some netizens reported that FlyNews chose to take a screenshot and publish the background data when facing some fans’ doubts about the voting part of the finals of the National School Beauty and Hunk Contest. For an Internet company, we all know that there is no need for FlyNews to do this. Or put it in another way, you had more choices at the time, such as making a form, or uploading background data in text form. You didn’t need to take a screenshot directly. So why did you do this?”

“Why?” Tao Mu rubbed his chin with his slender fingers, pondered for a moment, and said solemnly: “That is, we all know that questioning and arguing have always been an important driving force for the advancement of human society. I am not against questioning, in fact. I understand why netizens questioned this matter. But how to say, you can’t just make a question and that’s it. After you have questioned, you have to learn to verify. How to verify? Naturally, verify from the source. I think whether it’s star chasing or whatever, if you chase anything, the final result is not only the truth, but also what you can get from it. I asked the technical department to directly take screenshots and publish the background data, and I also asked them to post a tutorial. So you see, some of the netizens who questioned the matter have now learned how to read back-end data, and some even learned coding by themselves and how to check IP. Isn’t that good?”

“So Mr. Tao’s reason for doing this is because you hope that more questioning netizens can learn how to trace to the origins?” The female reporter of the “Internet Observer” held back a smile. She felt Tao Mu was really fun. This naked revenge mentality could actually be put in such a righteous way: “Isn’t it really because you were angry that those netizens questioned you, so you deliberately threw out backstage screenshots in an attempt to look down on the IQ of those questioning netizens?”

“Eh, how can you say that, little big sister?” Tao Mu was immediately indignant, and his slender fingers tapped in mid air at the 28-year-old head female reporter of the Internet Observer: “You can’t slander people like that. Am I such a petty and vengeful person to you?”

The term “little big sister” made the female reporter burst into infatuated giggles, and the interview ended in a harmonious atmosphere. Tao Mu got up and saw off the people from the “Internet Observer”. At the front doors, he received a call from the boss of Weibo.

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 )

“Have you been adopted before? When you were five years old, did your adoptive parents send you back to the orphanage in the name of you having secretly abused your younger brother behind their backs?” Gao Yonghuai said straightforwardly and concisely: “You be careful. I have received the news that someone wants to discredit you on this matter.”
