In the huge and quiet studio, there was the sound of an artificial stream flowing slowly. The water was clean and clear, passing through most of the studio before finally falling into a small artificial fountain.
Once Ding Bo left, Xi Ze bowed his head and looked at the youth hiding under his desk, refusing to come out. This posture was extremely embarrassing. The space under the table wasn't small. It was difficult to accommodate a 188cm tall teenage, causing Ming Yu's upper half to be almost lying on Xi Ze's legs.
The youth's warm breath blew through the thin cloth to Xi Ze's sensitive area, making his already excited area stir even further.
“The man is gone, come out." Xi Ze tried to suppress his feelings in his voice as he said in a dumb voice. "Underneath the table is too small. I will pull you up. Just now you seem to have hit the table. Does your head hurt?"
As he spoke, Xi Ze stretched out a hand and pulled Ming Yu out from the table. His movements were so ingenious that with a simple tug, Ming Yu was once again straddling Xi Ze's lap.
Ming Yu's erotic desires hadn't completely disappeared. In particular, he was squeezed into such a small space and facing the man's lower body. Ming Yu was already flushed and the blood in his body was surging excitedly.
After seeing that Xi Ze was holding his waist and leaning over to kiss him, Ming Xiaoyu pushed him away and coughed twice. "The words Ding Bo just said, what did he mean? What magazines? 1,000 copies?"
The man's dark pupils shrank slightly. It was just a moment as Xi Ze calmed down and returned to normal. "The recent Ji and Ya has a magazine project with Muse. Ding Bo was in charge of this matter. I'm not sure about the 1,000 copies but perhaps he is sending them to the staff of Ji and Ya?"
Xi Ze's voice was peaceful when he said this and there were no slight ups and downs. It was as if he was telling a big truth, a truth that couldn't be questioned. But in this sentence, Xi Ze threw all the blame to Ding Bo and a question to Ming Xiaoyu.
Ming Yu squinted suspiciously at the words and tentatively asked, "Is it? Why do I feel like something is wrong?"
Xi Ze just raised an eyebrow and asked, "Is there something wrong?"
As he spoke, he kept rubbing his body against the youth's thigh. The shameless actions caused Ming Yu's breath get out of control and he almost couldn't hold it.
"Don't move!" The youth gritted his teeth and snapped out. "I am asking you about a serious matter. Are you hiding something from me…?"
A sudden kiss swallowed up the youth's next words. With this fierce and passionate kiss, Ming Yu couldn't breathe for a while. He could only let the man's tongue fill his mouth, sucking up the body fluids.
The obscene silver strange lingered between the lips of the two people. The kiss was too sudden and Xi Ze's actions too overbearing and fierce. his rationality was instantly captured and he had to go along with the flow, powerless to respond to this kiss.
Once the kiss was over, Ming Yu was completely dizzy and almost forgot what he was doing.
Then Xi Ze didn't give him any consideration. He gently kiss the young man's red lips that were slightly inflamed. A sweet sound couldn't help escaping from Ming Yu's throat. Then Xi Ze shifted his position and started to bite the white earlobe.
The tip of his tongue gently poked at the small hole, causing Ming Yu to pant.
In general, Ming Yu rarely wore earrings but he had the ear hole. At this moment, Xi Ze used his rough tongue to constantly lick the sensitive earlobe. Ming Yu was unable to stop him from doing anything.
Once the clothes on his upper body was removed by the man, the cold restored some of Ming Yu's rationality. By then, the man had rudely swept some of the pens and papers on the table to the ground. Ming Yu saw it and asked, "That is your recent design drawing, isn't it very precious?"
The man placed his lover on the table and raise an eyebrow, "Do you know what the most powerful part of your husband is?"
Ming Yu smiled. "Husband, you are a ghost."
"The things that are you in husband's brain, no one can take it away."
"You are a shameless rascal. I'm not playing with you. I'm going downstairs to find Brother Zhao and Sister Luo."
How could Xi Ze give Ming Xiaoyu a chance to escape? He did all this and now had to pursue victory!
As for what he later said to the rogue, Ming Xiaoyu never wanted to recall it.
This didn't stop Ming Yu from having unstable legs when he left Xi Ze's office. His whole body was weak, causing him to be held in Xi Ze's arms as they left the company together.
Fortunately, Xi Ze had an exclusive elevator in the company and they weren't discovered by anyone as they headed to the garage. Only poor Ding Bo found a locked door when he went to find Xi Ze in one hour. The soundproofed room meant it was impossible for the young man's voice to leak out. Therefore, Ding Bo thought that Xi Ze had already left.
In the evening, Xi Ze had to deal with many things due to wasting time in the afternoon. After cleaning up the youth's body, he placed the sleeping youth on the bed.
Xi Ze carefully arranged the quilt and bent to gently kiss Ming Yu's lips.
Just as he was going to turn away, his clothes were suddenly pulled. Xi Ze turned with surprised, only to see blurred eyes as the youth softly said, "Kiss me then go."
Xi Ze's eyes deepened as he bent to give his lover a long kiss. Then he finally turned away.
After leaving, he temporarily didn't return to Ji and Ya but headed to the Muse building. In the dark of night, a tall and elegant man entered the building with a blank expression and sneaked into his office.
Before leaving, Xi Ze had deliberately locked the door and now he came back to… cough, clean up the scene.
Nonsense! How can someone else see his lover's mess?
This must be cleaned by himself!
Pity our pampered lives… well, this wasn't really true. Xi Ze was cook at cooking. In any case, Mr. Xi rarely did manual labour but now he was using a wet towel to carefully wipe at the table, the chair, the floor and so on…
Why was that saying?
Play for a while, clean up like a dog afterwards!
After spending more than half an hour cleaning his office of all the evidence, Xi Ze wiped the sweat on his forehead, three things away in a rubbish bin and then drove to the Ji and Ya studio.
Xi Ze's exclusive elevator moved from the top floor to the basement level and didn't stop on any floor.
Xi Ze didn't know it but in a coffee shop on the 28th floor of the Muse building, a handsome man happened to run into someone else. The latter smiled and the two people sat down in the coffee shop to chat.
At this time, most of the staff members in the Muse building had already left work. It was truly fate to be able to meet here. After all, his position was much higher in the company than Lu Zhenxi but Cheng Su politely asked Lu Zhenxi to drink a cup of coffee with him. The two of them sat at a round table and chattered casually.
At this time, Lu Zhenxi was no longer under Zeng Shu's hands. He had completely abandoned the fashion industry and decided not to model again. Therefore, Zeng Shu gave Lu Zhenxi to an agent in Muse dedicated to acting, making a clean break.
“In fact, I've never blamed Brother Zeng. My new agent must have a worse position in the company but as Brother Zeng said, I no longer have a way to become a model. It was better to go to the entertainment industry and in any case, I quite like acting."
Cheng Su drank the coffee, looking at Lu Zhenxi and said casually, "Brother Zeng is really too ruthless. So what if you offended Ming Yu a bit? Muse isn't his company, nor is the fashion industry. Why can't you have a place in the fashion industry despite having a bad relationship with him?"
Lu Zhenxi shook his head. "I also know that I don't have talent in modelling. I don't particularly care about this matter. But Brother Cheng, your words aren't wrong. Brother Zeng told me it isn't Ming YU suppressing me. It is…"
Lu Zhenxi paused and thought for a moment. "It is the person behind Ming Yu. Brother Zeng said that Ming Yu's background is very strong and I can't fight him. Since the other person doesn't intend to block me in the entertainment industry, I might as well have a career in acting."
Cheng Su's eyes narrowed. "But Lu Zhenxi, you and Ming Yu just had a small disagreement. Isn't it too much for the person behind Ming Yu to act like that? Are you really not angry? Don't you feel any resentment?"
Lu Zhenxi smiled wryly. "Brother Cheng, I'm not a newcomer who just entered the industry. The industry has always been unclean. One wrong step and I can no longer come back. Now I am a showbiz person. I am no longer a model."
Looking at Lu Zhenxi, Cheng Su seemed to want to say something more. But then Lu Zhenxi said, "Brother Cheng, to tell you the truth, I slightly dislike you. I originally offended Ming Yu to please you but now that I think about it, everything is over. I was really wrong. I shouldn't use other people to climb up if I really value my strength."
Cheng Su frowned and didn't speak.
“Now I just want to honestly be an actor. I might not climb to the first-tier with my strength but I want to rely on my own efforts to go as far as possible. Brother Cheng, it is the law of the jungle. If I beat Ming Yu now, I can't say for sure that I am better. When I think of this, I have accepted the unpleasant facts.
Cheng Su said urgently, "But Lu Zhenxi…"
“Brother Cheng, shut up. I know that you don't want me to let go of my hatred of Ming Yu. I know you don't like Ming Yu. I don't know why but I heard that you and he had some unpleasant relationship before. But I advise you not to have anything to do with him. Don't you know? A friend of mine Jiang Kaiyang went against Ming Yu and was blocked for five years. This is tantamount to ruining him!"
Cheng Su's eyes shone and he didn't say a word.
After chatting for a while, the two of them separated. Cheng Su went downstairs to find his car and a white Toyota disappeared into the night.
However, Lu Zhenxi's last words always echoed in Cheng Su's mind.
November 2017, just three days after the 5,000 Years high-end show ended. The Yizhi PR department published an announcement in major media outlets in Huaxia. It was announced that starting from next month, the global spokesperson of Yizhi would be officially replaced.
The next day, Yizhi contacted the global media and announced the name of the new global spokesperson.
Once the name was seen, there was an uproar among countless fashion lovers all over the world before they accepted the result very calmly.
Although his new spokesperson's qualifications couldn't be compared to Du Ruo's qualifications, they didn't know why but they felt it was natural for Yizhi to choose this supermodel.
Ming Yu, this name wasn't a stranger to the global fashion media.
Once this name first appeared in the world's fashion circles, he was just a small second-tier model. He become the Huaxia spokesperson for the first-tier luxury brand Nidelan. Now he had become the global spokesperson for the world's top luxury brand Yizhi.
The gap could no longer be described as a gap. This was simply the Mariana Trench!
Huaxia luxury brands always disliked finding foreign supermodels and stars to endorse them. After all, Huaxia people always paid attention to 'fertilizer doesn't flow to outsider land.' Their supermodels might be willing to endorse foreign brands but for foreign supermodels to cross the border into Huaxia?
There were no open doors!
For example, the global spokesperson for Ji and Ya was Xi Ze and this hadn't changed for many years. The spokesperson for Yizhi was Du Ruo and now it was Ming Yu.
All of them had exclusively Oriental faces. Don't look at Japan and South Korea. There were only people from Huaxia!
Therefore, this 5,000 Years show already made people aware of something strange. In the high-end show, there were several models on the world supermodel rankings that were clearly higher than Ming Yu. How could they let Ming Yu act as the opening model?
In addition, there was something very strange about the poster for this Muse issue. Du Ruo was handing a piece of jade to Ming Yu. This was simply implying something!
As Xi Ze said, once the replacement spokesperson for Yizhi was exposed, the sales of Muse weren't reduced. It broke the global sales record maintained by itself. In the end, there wasn't enough stock and they had to start printing more.
Many fashion lovers were very curious. In this issue of Muse, did Du Ruo and MIng Yu disclose any inside information. For example, these two people were Yizhi's global spokesperson. There were too many topics to talk about!
However, they were destined to be disappointed. Ming Xiaoyu didn't reveal any private matters in the interview. Before the start of the high-end show, Ming Yu had signed a contract with the other person. Starting from December, he would officially become Yizhi's global spokesperson.
Zhao Rui and Luo Ru were very excited about signing this agreement. It was the global spokesperson for Yizhi! For Ming Yu, it was a gold medal token equivalent to taking the top 10 in the supermodel rankings! It was because Yizhi was a top luxury brand in the world.
But for Ming Yu, he finished signing the contract and looked at the Yizhi person responsible for a long time.
This behaviour for Yizhi was really very bold. They directly signed a 42nd ranked model as their global spokesperson. If Ming Yu couldn't enter the top 10 within one year, then Yizhi would become the laughingstock of the fashion world.
But sometimes, it was through courage and the daring to break through that innovation could be made.
Yizhi might be founded earlier than Ji and Ya but it had been oppressed by Ji and Ya for decades. Even if it was a traditional brand, it needed to have fresh blood injected. Thus, Ming Yu didn't know that he became Yizhi's global spokesperson due to the new blood unwillingness to make concessions to the board of directors.
According to the original thoughts of the board of directors, they wanted to either renew the contract with Du Ruo or find another top model no less than Du Ruo. Now the innovation faction was placing hope on the super newcomer. If Ming Yu couldn't get great achievements in one year, the innovation faction's right to speak on the board would weaken.
Of course, these weren't things for Ming Yu to worry about. The innovation faction also received rich results far beyond their expectations.
After a night of rest, Ming Xiaoyu regained his spirit and started to think about how he became more and more ridiculous towards this man.
It was absurd but in some respects, Ming Yu was quite serious. Once Xi Ze called to say that he would be working overtime in Ji and Ya's studio all night, Ming Yu swallowed down all his condemning words and finally told Xi Ze not to work too hard.
This made Xi Ze's heart warm. He said that Ming Yu should have a good rest and not stay up too late working.
What he didn't know was that after hanging up, the smile on the youth's face disappeared. At the same time, the distressed emotion slowly disappeared from his eyes. Ming Yu bit his lips and narrowed his eyes as he thought for a long time. Finally, he made a phone call. "Sister Luo? There is something I want to ask you to do…"
"It isn't about a job so don't tell Brother Zhao. He doesn't know what is going on… Can you check if in the capital, there is a bookstore that often wholesales a large number of Muse magazines or other magazines… At least 1,000 or more copies. If you find out, see if you can determine who the buyer is. I'm not in a hurry."
After hanging up the phone, Ming Yu calmly got out of bed and started preparing his breakfast. At noon, he looked for a lot of delicious meals and personally sent them to the Ji and Ya high-end studio. He asked the staff members to eat a good meal and flattered them.
When sending the food, Ming Yu used the name of Xi Ze. Therefore, these staff members were a bit confused but didn't think too much. Some staff members would raise their eyebrows and smile, but they didn't say anything.
Once he met Xi Ze, Ming Yu gave him a bowl of soup and scolded him. "You said you are so busy. How could you do that type of thing? Fortunately, those drawings weren't damaged or you might be even busier."
Mr. Xi was treated so well, this was simply a pie falling from the sky!
His family's mushroom was unexpectedly gentle enough to bring him soup and was also distressed about his overtime! This considerate and wise appearance made Xi Ze a bit suspicious. But then Ming Yu said, "My holiday will end tomorrow and I won't have time to see you," diverting his attention.
The two people spoke for a while in the private studio. Then Ming Yu no longer bothered Xi Ze's work and left.
The next day, Ming Yu finished his holiday and returned to Muse. He learnt from Zhao Rui that he had become the global spokesperson for Yizhi and how much influence it had in the global fashion industry.
At this moment, the announcement of the world supermodel rankings was less than one month away.
The last issue of the world supermodel rankings was delayed for one month but that didn't mean there would be delays in each subsequent period. Thus, there was only one month left and millions of fans around the world were waiting for—
[How high can Ming Yu climb?"
The first time he entered the rankings, he achieved the terrible place of 42nd. This was one ranking higher than Luo Cheng!
Luo Cheng debuted in a high-end fashion show by relying on his 'back door' while Ming Xiaoyu was part of the 'strength' faction that advanced step by step. Many people thought that Ming Xiaoyu could surpass Luo Cheng's record in a short time.
On the Internet, a variety of ranking predictions emerged. The vast majority of people guessed between 20 to 30. There were some sunspots who spoke sarcastically or lit incense to Buddha that perhaps his ranking would drop instead of rising.
Only a small number of people felt that Ming Yu could advance in to the top 10 this time, breaking the blockade of the top 10 for the first time in the past three years!
Speaking of which, there was a really interesting thing.
Since Luo Cheng rushed into the top 10 of the rankings three years ago and finally stayed steady around the 5th rank, there had been no significant changes in the top 10 of the male and female supermodel rankings. At first, everyone thought it was just a coincidence. But as time went on, the fashion lovers' faces became odd when no new supermodel entered the top 10 for three years.
【 After Luo Cheng entered the top 10, there has been no one new… 】
【 This is just a coincidence. Luo Cheng is the last rising star in recent years… 】
When Luo Cheng heard these remarks, he was so angry that his nose was crooked. What did the fashion industry having no outstanding newcomers have to do with him? There were some superstitious people who said that 'Luo Cheng has taken away all newcomers for the next 10 years!"
Damn it! What about Qi Yun who had been fourth for three years! （┙>∧<）┙へ┻┻!!!
One night, when Ming Xiaoyu was reading some fan comments about him entering the top 10, Xi Ze shook his head and said, "You are late entering the top 10. If you were my private model, you would've already reached this level or even higher."
Ming Xiaoyu sneered. "In any case, my current performance has nothing to do with you. Just wait for me to pull your down from first place and let everyone in the world see. They will completely forget Luo Cheng. You will be the one who was robbed by a newcomer!"
Xi Ze's reply to Ming Xiaoyu was a gentle kiss. The two people soon forgot about the poor wronged Luo Cheng and started to do shameful things. The next day, once the two of them woke up from their sleep—
Huaxia's annual martial arts blockbuster An Li finally released its first round of makeup stills!
