Anya had originally planned to shop with Xu Xinyi in Paris but now she could only complain that Xu Xinyi was someone who ‘prioritized lovers over friends’ while she wandered around with her assistant. It was all because of Yi Yang’s ‘intervention’.
“Sister Anya, do Sister Xinyi and Mr. Yi really have that kind of relationship?”
That evening, after Anya and the little assistant, were coming back with a full load from shopping. They were alone riding the elevator back to the hotel room when the little assistant finally couldn’t resist her curiosity about Xu Xinyi and Yi Yang and plucked up the courage to ask Anya about it.
Anya sighed, “Your boss, that woman who prioritizes lovers over friends, can’t you guess?”
The assistant smiled. “I really can’t guess.”
Anya estimated that because now that the two people had walked the red carpet together at Paris Fashion Week and the online rumors were becoming more and more intense, their relationship may not be hidden for much longer.
“It really is the kind of relationship you guessed.”
“But I haven’t said what kind of relationship I guessed?” The assistant was very surprised and asked, “So are they really husband and wife? Sister Xinyi was really hiding it deep! “
Anya smiled but said nothing.
The elevator door opened.
“For now keep this secret deep inside your heart until your boss decides when she wants to announce it.”
“Sister Anya, I’ll remember.”
Out in the hotel corridor, Luo Jie was leaning against the wall with his arms crossed over his chest. He was looking in the direction of the elevator and he looked as if he had been waiting for her for a long time.
Anya glanced at him and then sent the assistant back to her room first.
She walked slowly over to Luo Jie, then smiled and asked him, “Han Xiao’s agent, what can I do for you?”
Luo Jie stood upright and his eyes flashed with quiet dignity. He calmly said, “There is something I want to ask you.”
Anya saw that the palm print on his face had already disappeared and there was almost no trace left.
“What is it?”
“I don’t think it’s appropriate to talk about it here.”
Anya sneered and walked past him with an expressionless face. “Since it’s not appropriate, there’s no need to say it.”
“Wait a minute-” Luo Jie caught Anya’s wrist as she walked by.
Anya reacted quickly and shook him off. “What are you doing? If you have something to say, just say it. Do you want me to slap you in the face again?”
Luo Jie stepped back a little and said, “Why are you so wary of me?”
Anya glanced at him and seemed like she didn’t want to say anything to him.
“Alright, I’ll just ask right here, okay?” Luo Jie’s face sank, “Xu Xinyi and Yi Yang, the two of them… are they really husband and wife? “
Anya turned around and looked at him. “How do you know that?”
“Yi Yang said it himself at Paris Fashion Week.”
“That’s right,” Anya shrugged. “They are indeed husband and wife, and they’ve been married for two years.”
“Why didn’t they tell anyone even after two years of marriage?”
Anya: “That is their own private matter, isn’t it?”
“But Han Xiao…”
“What about Han Xiao?”
Luo Jie froze for a moment. Eventually, he shut his mouth and shook his head. “It’s nothing.”
“Is that it? The hidden marriage between Xinyi and Yi Yang is their business, and when they want to make it public is also their business. Since she has never taken the initiative to provoke you, you don’t seem to have any right to question me about her here. Was there anything else? If not, I’m going back to my room.”
“Wait a minute,” Luo Jie stood in front of her. “Fine, I won’t ask any more about Xu Xinyi. Those two are husband and wife, so I wish them a good marriage that will last for a hundred years, but there is one more thing I want to ask you.”
Anya looked at him impatiently.
“Why did you react so badly that day?”
“I reacted badly? Where did I overreact?” Anya smiled, “Luo Jie, let me tell you, since you are not interested in women, you should not provoke women, do you understand? Otherwise, the next time you might meet a woman who has a worse temper than me and it won’t be something that can be settled with two slaps.”
Seeing Luo Jie was still standing in front of her she snarled, “Get out of the way!”
“I’m not interested in women? Since when was I not interested in women? You need to make it clear to me.”
“Are you still playing dumb with me? Who in our circle doesn’t know your secret?”
“My secret?” Luo Jie was stunned, but in the twinkling of an eye, he seemed to recall some of the gossip he had heard before and smiled with disbelief.
“Anya, you are also an agent, so you should know that the rumors are not to be believed. If I’m not interested in women, could it be that I’m interested in men?”
Anya didn’t deny it. She just walked to her room, clearly indicating that she didn’t want to talk about it with Luo Jie.
“Anya, stop!” Luo Jie quickly snatched away the room key Anya had just taken out.
“What are you doing? Give it back!”
“Just hear me out.”
“What else is there to say? I don’t care whether you like men or women.”
“I care!” Luo Jie clutched the room key and said in a loud voice, “I can’t let my reputation be destroyed in front of the person I like, so I must solemnly explain to you today that I, Luo Jie, like women. And I like you.”
Anya looked around and whispered harshly, “Are you afraid that all the people on this floor can’t hear you? Could you speak a little louder?”
“Alright.” Then Luo Jie really raised his voice, “I, Luo Jie, like…”
“You shut up!”
Luo Jie smiled and shut up. “Anya, you are an agent and I am also an agent. There should be a lot of common topics between us. So would you like to try it with me?”
Anya looked at him for two seconds. Then she took out her cell phone, opened Wechat, opened the address list, and shoved it in front of him.
“Luo Jie, I have a hundred young fresh meats in my Wechat. They are all young, sunny, and handsome. They are extremely good to me. They never complain and never get me into any trouble. I am very happy playing with them. So you want me to give up this large forest and stick with you, a single tree?”
Luo Jie’s eyes stayed on the phone’s screen for a moment. After a brief silence, he looked at Anya and said with a smile: “Then do you want to try playing with me?”
On the flight back to China, Luo Jie wore his sunglasses and did not take them off for a single moment.
Two frustrated people sat side-by-side, one with a cold expression like the world owed him eight million yuan, and the other like a frosted eggplant, wilted and without any spirit.
“Old Han, give me two days off when we get home.”
Han Xiao said without any trace of affection, “I’m going to be very busy when I get back. You can’t take time off.”
Luo Jie sat up, “I am already like this, you won’t even give me two days off so I can heal?”
Han Xiao looked over at him, puzzled.
Luo Jie saw the mistrust in his eyes so he simply took off his sunglasses and revealed two dark circles under his eyes. “Old Han, take it from me, never mess with a woman. Just look, Anya, who I once told you was extremely weak, gave these to me. Just look at the panda eyes on my face. Can’t you give me two days off to treat my wounds?”
“Can I get you anything, sir?” A stewardess suddenly appeared with a smile.
Luo Jie immediately put his sunglasses back on and said, “Champagne, please.”
“Does Mr. Han need anything?”
“Alright.” The stewardess left with a smile.
“I say, Old Han, you don’t need to keep such a straight face. Really… you and Xu Xinyi had a beautiful misunderstanding. Just give up and forget her. You will meet a better one.”
Han Xiao glared at the other man. Was he afraid people would think he was mute if he didn’t shut up or something?
“That’s enough. Just shut up.”
“OK, I’m shutting up.”
“Sir, your champagne.” The beautiful stewardess reappeared with Luo Jie’s champagne.
Luo Jie took it and said, “Thank you.”
But as soon as he took a sip, he heard someone talking to him from the side.
“Luo Jie, would you mind changing your seat? I want to speak with Han Xiao.”
Luo Jie looked over to see who was speaking.
Xu Weiyin was standing there. Seeing that he had turned to look at her, she took off her hat and sunglasses and gave him a smile.
What a coincidence.
Luo Jie looked at Han Xiao and saw that the other man did not want to speak with Xu Weiyin. So he smiled and said, “I’m sorry, but I mind.”
Xu Weiyin started to speak, as if to herself, “I think Mr. Han might be very interested in what I have to say. It’s about Xu Xinyi after all.”
Han Xiao seemed to be shocked out of his daze. He turned his head to look over.
Xu Weiyin motioned and said, “Then Mr. Luo, if you’ll excuse me…”
“…” Luo Jie quietly got up.
Xu Weiyin sat down in his seat and Han Xiao subtly scooted to the left, trying to maintain some distance from her.
“What matter do you have? Say it.”
Xu Weiyin did not seem to care about his rudeness. “Surely you’ve heard from Mr. Luo about the marriage between Yi Yang and Xu Xinyi, right?”
Han Xiao’s face tightened and he said, “If this is all you wanted to talk about, I don’t need Miss Xu to tell me.”
“Of course,” Xu Weiyin said leisurely. “But I can see that Mr. Han treats Miss Xu Xinyi differently from other people.”
Han Xiao’s face was unreadable. He did not speak.
“Would Mr. Han be interested in knowing the inside story regarding the marriage between Xu Xinyi and Yi Yang?”
Han Xiao’s curiosity seemed to be piqued, “The inside story?”
“Back in college Yi Yang and I were classmates. I spent four years with him back then. Later, after we both graduated, he left to study abroad, and I went into the entertainment industry, so we broke up for a while,” Xu Weiyin spoke with a smile. “When he eventually came back from abroad he then went to work for the Yi Group. I hadn’t been having a good time in the entertainment industry at that time. You probably even remember it, something happened to me while I was working with you on that TV series we were both in. Back then, just using Yi Yang’s name, I was able to solve all those troubles. “
“But after that, for certain reasons, I left to go abroad.”
“What does any of this have to do with Xu Xinyi?”
“I’m not finished yet. You, like everyone in our circle, should know that Xu Xinyi made her debut in the entertainment industry borrowing my name. Back then, all my friends in the United States knew that there was a ‘Little Xu Weiyin’ who had appeared in the domestic entertainment industry,” Xu Weiyin sighed. “That was two years ago. Then, shortly after Xu Xinyi’s debut, she and Yi Yang got married. Do you know what that means?”
“What do you think it means?”
Xu Weiyin smiled. “I’ve looked into things a little. Ever since Xu Xinyi and Yi Yang got married, Yi Yang never took Xu Xinyi to any cocktail party or other gathering. And during their two years of marriage, Yi Yang has always been running all around the globe for the Yi Group. In two years, there were very few opportunities for those two to even see each other. In addition, I found out that Yi Yang contacted lawyers to initiate a divorce with Xu Xinyi not long ago.”
Han Xiao’s pupils shrank. “What are you trying to say?”
“Do you really not understand Mr. Han? After two years, even if it was a hidden marriage, there should have been some sort of news about their relationship. Instead, all you can find is talks of divorce. It proves that Yi Yang can’t stand his marriage to Xu Xinyi. Put simply, Yi Yang doesn’t love Xu Xinyi.”
Luo Jie, who had pricked up his ears at the side, finally couldn’t help saying, “You don’t like Xu Xinyi, do you?”
Xu Weiyin smiled faintly but did not speak.
Luo Jie suddenly seemed stunned by realization, “Who is the father of your child?”
But Xu Weiyin very skilfully stopped there. “That’s all I wanted to say. I’m not encouraging Mr. Han to get involved in the relationship between Xu Xinyi and Yi Yang. I just think that if Mr. Han is really interested in Miss Xu Xinyi, he shouldn’t give up. Everything I just told you was the truth, if Mr. Han doesn’t believe me you can check it out for yourself.”
With that, Xu Weiyin got up and walked away.
Luo Jie sat back in his seat and watched Xu Weiyin’s retreating back suspiciously. He lowered his voice and said, “Han Xiao, you know that what that woman said can’t be believed, right? There’s no way her motives are pure.”
Luo Jie breathed a sigh of relief. “I’m glad you know.”
“So I want you to check it out.”
“You… really? You really want to get involved between Yi Yang and Xu Xinyi? You will be the third party! “
Han Xiao frowned and spoke with an uncertain tone. “I didn’t want to get involved between them at first. But before Xu Weiyin quit the entertainment industry four years ago, she did have a close relationship with Yi Yang, and they had some small scandals several times. Then Xu Weiyin went abroad…”
Luo Jie took over, “And Yi Yang suddenly entered a hidden marriage with a woman who looks a lot like Xu Weiyin? Now Xu Weiyin returned to China with a child and Yi Yang wants a divorce? Don’t you think this sounds just like that bloodbath romance drama about a snatched lover that you were in right after your debut?”
Han Xiao’s gaze swept over frostily.
Luo Jie surrendered instantly, “Don’t worry, I’ll look into it for you.”
As Han Xiao and Luo Jie were landing in China, Xu Xinyi and Yi Yang were just setting out on their flight home.
Yi Yang had stayed in Paris for two or three extra days. During that time he didn’t do any work, he didn’t bring his assistant, he didn’t even touch his computer, and he only bothered to answer his phone right before getting on the plane. So now, after getting off the plane, Zhao Bin, his assistant, came to pick him up. Zhao Bin really wished he could just directly fly his boss through the city’s omnipresent traffic jam and bring him to the office instantly.
But because Yi Yang was the boss, he could only smile to cover up his wild anxiety. “President Yi, there are a few small things for you to deal with at the company. I wonder if you have the time to take a look now?”
Yi Yang knew that since his assistant asked him like this first thing, they were probably not just trivial matters.
“I’ll go to the office. You head home by yourself.”
Xu Xinyi yawned, separated from Yi Yang, went back to the Yi estate, took a day of rest, and then casually looked at the work Anya had arranged for her.
It was the endorsement that Xu Xinyi had snatched from Xie Chi before going to Paris.
Xu Xinyi, after she came back from Paris Fashion Week, seemed to suddenly have been plated with gold in the eyes of her fans. Her fanbase became much bigger and they also had much more courage.
Those Xinyi fans who used to only be able to appreciate her face in secret could now boast openly about being a fan. And any dissenting voices were told to shut up directly.
“These photos of Xinyi from Paris Fashion Week make her look like an immortal! I just can’t!”
“If I can grow up like Xinyi, I will be able to walk sideways in the entertainment industry!”
“Has she finally got some fans now? Don’t any of you know that Xu Xinyi went under the knife to change her face to look more like Xu Weiyin’s face? Why are you all bragging when her face has already been so cut up? I really hope you fans who like her face can crowdfund and send her to a better plastic surgeon to fix it soon.”
“? Can I help you, the person who asked Xu Xinyi to go to a better plastic surgeon? Xu Xinyi’s face has never changed, okay? “
“Changed her face to look like Xu Weiyin’s face? Oh, my God, this blind person is making me laugh to death. Who doesn’t know that Xu Xinyi’s face has been well-known in the entertainment industry for years? What? When his idol sat in the back row at Paris Fashion Week and could only walk the red carpet very late, he decided to vent out his anger on our poor little beauty Xinyi, the one who sat in the front row at Paris Fashion Week and walked the red carpet with Yi Yang. QAQ”
“Aren’t they just jealous? Watching Xinyi becoming more and more popular, while Xu Weiyin is getting lower and lower, it is normal for their heart to feel unbalanced.”
“I’m jealous? I’m laughing to death here, why would I be jealous of a third-tier starlet? Today I learned that, not only the fans, but the entire entertainment industry have all seemed to forget the ‘good’ things that Xu Xinyi has always done in the past? Don’t go too far. Even the advertisement she shot today, who doesn’t know that she snatched it from Xie Chi? Is Xie Chi so out of date now? His fans don’t care that he was bullied like this?”
“Don’t talk nonsense, Xinyi robbed Xie Chi for the endorsement? Isn’t it just that Xinyi’s current position in the industry made the brand want to pick her over Xie Chi?”
“Besides, what kind of thing is Xie Chi? In their previous cooperation on Fashion Weekly, he decided to throw stones down the well at Xu Xinyi when she was having a hard time. He spoke out and said he was unwilling to work with Xu Xinyi, which caused her to be replaced by Xu Weiyin. Then, in the last issue, sales plummeted. So what if Xu Xinyi snatched his endorsement now? Tit for tat.”
“Was there such a thing? Then I think Xu Xinyi did a good job! “
“+ 1. Well done! People who throw stones down the well like that are really disgusting.”
The comments from this thread were more than enough to prove that bullying others wasn’t the real sin, instead, being blind was the real sin*.
When Xu Xinyi came out of the studio Anya took the opportunity to show her the comments under Weibo.
“It’s fine, just let them make trouble,” Xu Xinyi didn’t care at all. “Since someone decided to leak the story, we just won’t worry about it. Be tough. We have fans now.”
Anya laughed and agreed. The feeling of her star suddenly catapulting to the top was really great.
On the way back, Anya asked her, “When are you and Yi Yang going to announce your relationship?”
“Announce our relationship?” Xu Xinyi had a headache just thinking about this topic. “Let’s just take it one step at a time. Yi Yang hasn’t mentioned it to me yet. If he ever mentions it, then we can determine a time. I’ll just listen to Yi Yang.”
“Yi Yang, Yi Yang, all you can think about is Yi Yang, didn’t I tell you before? Yi Yang has begun to like you, so can’t you take the initiative? Why are you still acting so passive?”
Xu Xinyi laid limply in the back seat, looking drained and lifeless.
“Also, Han Xiao…”
Xu Xinyi felt her headache get worse. “Please, don’t mention this. Han Xiao probably now thinks of me as one of those married women who like to flirt around online.”
“What are you going to do?”
“What else can I do? Keep a distance from him.” After she said that, Xu Xinyi tentatively asked Anya, “Anya, if Yi Yang and I announced our relationship, will I have to keep my distance from the male stars in the entertainment industry?”
“You are a married woman, so you should be keeping your distance now.” Anya thought carefully, “That’s right, you really have to avoid suspicion. But, not thinking about that, tomorrow I contacted some more young fresh meats who wanted to join as staff for our studio…”
Xu Xinyi suddenly woke up. She sat up straight and spoke with a serious look on her face. “Anya, this is this and that is that. This is my studio. I have to take a look at anyone who wants to come in.”
Seeing her like that, Anya was very pleased.
Anya always felt it was very important to keep work and home separate. A person couldn’t just lose their head because of love, they had to keep sober and rational if they wanted to survive in the entertainment industry.
The next day, in a move that was unusual for her, Xu Xinyi had dressed up a little, sprayed herself with a few drops of fragrant perfume, and wore a pair of earrings and a necklace.
At the table, Yi Yang noticed and asked her, “Where are you going today?”
“I’m heading to the office. I have something important to do at the company today.”
–“Anya sent me a message just. All the fresh meats who wanted to sign the contract have arrived. So there will be a feast for my eyes.”
–“Who would have guessed that the day Xu Xinyi could choose out some handsome guys would come!”
–“I’ve heard that there are many beautiful assistants in Yi Yang’s company. You must be very happy at work, right?”
–“I will be able to experience that joy soon.”
The coffee in Yi Yang’s hand suddenly seemed to lose its flavor.
“Xu Xinyi, I heard that you are looking for more people for your studio? But your studio is so small, can you support it?”
“…how did you know?”
“What don’t I know about you? But now that your studio is still in its initial stages, I personally suggest that you don’t recruit too many people for the time being. Aren’t you trying to run before you can walk? You won’t be able to support it.”
–“Won’t be able to support it? Who are you looking down on here? I will support them even if I have to give my life!”
Yi Yang set his chopsticks down.
Xu Xinyi began to act very grateful. She smiled and said, “Thank you, husband. But don’t worry, I know my limits.”
Old Master Yi said, “Yi Yang, just let Xinyi do as she likes. Her studio will have to expand sooner or later anyway.” He chuckled and continued, “Xinyi, don’t worry. If you need anything you can just ask grandpa, grandpa will help you.”
“Thank you, grandpa!”
Yi Yang’s face crumpled with annoyance.
At ten o’clock, Xu Xinyi arrived at the studio.
There was a star waiting for her in the reception room.
Xu Xinyi put some importance on him. He had worked hard in the entertainment industry for many years, but his company had no good resources and had always treated him lukewarmly. But from what Xu Xinyi could see his acting skills were decent and his appearance was good, two traits in line with the current mainstream aesthetic. All he was missing was an opportunity.
“Has Anya come yet?” Xu Xinyi briefly looked over the information and asked.
“Sister Anya is in the reception room.”
Xu Xinyi nodded and got up and went to the reception room.
Liang Chuan, 31, graduated from a drama school. He was not a typical handsome guy at first glance, but if you looked at him you would see that he was low-key and humble, even a little shy, which gave people a very comfortable feeling.
Xu Xinyi chatted with him for more than an hour. She slowly analyzed his shortcomings and planned his future development before finally reaching an agreement to sign him to the studio. The specifics would be hammered out next time.
After Liang Chuan left, Anya asked her, “Do you really want to sign him?”
“Of course. Do I ever say things I don’t mean?”
“OK, I’ll hammer out the details.”
“Thank you for your hard work.”
Xu Xinyi got up and said, “When is the next appointment?”
“11:00, isn’t it?”
When she opened the door of the reception room, Jiang Nian was standing at the door.
“Jiang Nian? What are you doing standing here?”
Jiang Nian hung his head and seemed a little embarrassed to look up at her. He hesitated and seemed unable to stutter out a complete word for a long time.
“I-I just want to come… apologize. “
Xu Xinyi glanced at Anya.
Anya just gave her a ‘none of my business’ expression.
“Sister Xinyi, it was my fault to hide my true age from you. I hope you don’t mind.” Jiang Nian seemed to finally muster up his courage. He looked up at Xu Xinyi and said, “I went back and thought about it carefully and Sister Anya was right. I was just young and had no experience. I did something wrong but now I know I was wrong. Please forgive me.”
Xu Xinyi could understand what Jiang Nian’s so-called ‘something wrong’ was, so she did not embarrass the child on the spot. “Of course. I’m glad if you can figure things out, but you’re too young. I really suggest you think about studying.”
“I don’t like reading.”
“Yes, but I need to talk to your guardian, okay?”
Jiang Nian was silent for a long moment. “My mother passed away.”
“…what about your father?”
Jiang Nian said, “Do you have to talk to him?”
Xu Xinyi could tell that Jiang Nian didn’t want to talk about it, but when an 18-year-old child signed up for her studio, she had to talk to the family, right?
As for Jiang Nian’s elder brother, Jiang Huai, forget it. She didn’t want to deal with him if she could avoid it. But his father probably loved him very much, right?
Seeing Xu Xinyi seemed to be in a dilemma, Jiang Nian nodded, “OK, I’ll ask him to come over.”
“Alright, I’ll go ahead first then. Today, several artists may join our studio, but you can rest assured that the studio will never mistreat you.” With that, she patted Jiang Nian on the shoulder and turned away.
The smile on Jiang Nian’s face disappeared instantly. He watched Xu Xinyi’s retreating back with heavy eyes that were full of gloom.
That day, Xu Xinyi met with five artists who had submitted resumes. Liang Chuan was the only one she approved on the spot, the other four Xu Xinyi still needed to think carefully about.
After going home and taking a bath, Xu Xinyi lay on her massage chair and looked at the resumes and photos of the four stars while recalling what they had talked about today.
–“Out of these four, who do I choose? None of them are bad, they’re all good.”
–“This one looks the most handsome, but this one has longer legs, and this one was really sweet… it’s just too difficult to choose.”
Yi Yang walked in from the outside.
“Husband, you’re home?”
Yi Yang’s face looked ugly.
–“Who messed with him again? Putting on such an ugly face as soon as he walks through the door.”
“I’m tired from work. I’ll take a bath first.”
Yi Yang took his clothes and disappeared into the bathroom. He stayed there for half an hour before managing to put out the fire in his heart.
When he finally came out, Xu Xinyi was not in the room anymore.
He sat down on the sofa while wiping his hair with a towel. He decided he wanted to have a look at the contract book on the sofa.
But when he picked it up he saw that Xu Xinyi’s phone had been under it, and the phone was lit up.
There were several Wechat notifications.
“Sister Xinyi, I heard that your studio is recruiting entertainers? I don’t know if I have any chance to get into Sister Xinyi’s studio.”
“Here is my resume and some life photos.”
Yi Yang was not a man who would snoop through someone else’s phone, but just as he was about to put it down, a photo was sent over.
Yi Yang thought for a second before using his birthday to unlock Xinyi’s phone and clicked into WeChat. A man named Chen Shu had sent Xu Xinyi some photos.
They really were life photos**.
It was quite the picture. There was a man’s half-naked upper body that was wearing pajamas that were half-untied. Two selfies that were flaunting his flawless skin.
Xu Xinyi’s footsteps suddenly sounded from outside the room.
Yi Yang quickly put down his phone. Then he stood up with an expressionless face and began to unfasten the ties on his pajamas and robes almost unconsciously.
Because he just took a bath, the residual heat from the hot water was still there, and a few drops of water fell from his hair and slipped down his shoulders, neck, and abdominal muscles.
“Y…” Xu Xinyi bumped into Yi Yang at the door, and was suddenly confronted with his boiling hot chest and hard abdominal muscles.
Yi Yang looked down at her.
–“What the hell!”
–“Is this son of a bitch trying to take advantage of me?”
*In Chinese the line is ‘糊才是原罪’. The MTLs give me ‘confusion is the real sin’ or ‘paste is the real sin’. I’m 90% sure ‘才糊’ is the key term not translating properly but unfortunately, I don’t know enough (read: any) Chinese grammar to be sure. So, eh I just replaced it with something that makes sense in context. (EDIT : A kind commenter helped me fix this line to be more accurate, thanks!)
**‘生活照’ MTLs to ‘life photos’ and after googling around abit I think it should have a similar meaning to ‘candid’ photos? As in, just photos of people in their day-to-day life without a bunch of filters or posing or a studio or whatever.
5 thoughts on “NWWNL – Chapter 56”
Thank you for the chapter. A fascinating translation as always.
Ah, Xu Xinyi, your husband has set aside the vinegar bottle and has started in on the barrels in the basement. If he gets drunk on vinegar… may you rest in peace.
I’m sure ‘糊才是原罪’ is referring to ‘being blur/confused/blind is the real sin’.
P.S: I took a look at the original chinese script… I think the sentence should be “The comments in that thread chain was enough to prove that bullying others wasn’t the real sin, instead, being blind was the real sin’
The chinese like to use 楼 as post 楼上 as poster above, it’d make sense that it’s 高楼 for thread chain (in our internet slang terms).
If this the young fresh meat who she sees half naked, Xu Xinyi probably gonna squealing in delight, but when her own husband does that she instany thinks that he’s trying to take advantage of her. Xu Xinyi, you… 😂😂😅
this Xu weiyin is a stubborn idiot. She was already warned by JH before and she knew already which position she actually has but just doesn’T know her limit.
She would regret this soon enough. Just for this she would lose her only golden thigh she had and she can just forget a smooth career she wants to chase again.
Doing this she’d not only make enemy with Yi family but also Jiang family.
She is only seeking death!
this Chen Shu guy oml GAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
