Chapter 275: Fame is Troublesome

Nie Zehai flashed a delighted smile the moment he saw Xia Xibei.

“Congrats, congrats!”

Yu Ziqi yelled alongside him, “You’re amazing! The meal is on me this time! Let’s celebrate it well!”

Xia Xibei laughed, “Of course we’ll celebrate, but I’ll be the one paying.”

Yu Ziqi wanted to say something, but she cut him off, “Rest assured, I can still afford to pay for our meal.”

“How about I pay!” Pan Yan was also excited.

“Enough, does it really matter who’s going to pay?” Nie Zehai coughed softly.

It didn’t matter who would be paying because everyone present could afford it.

They laughed and seated themselves.

After ordering the dishes, Nie Zehai couldn’t help but sigh, “If I’d known that there would be such a spectacular sight today, I would have been there to watch it no matter what!”

It was a pity that no one had managed to record the scene, and that the hall did not have any surveillance cameras. Otherwise, this scene would have become a huge sensation if it was aired!

Xia Xibei laughed, “It’s okay, you’ll still get to see it in the future.”

“How on earth did you do that though?” Nie Zehai was extremely curious.

Yu Ziqi’s eyes were equally wide as he begged, “Yes! Please teach us!”

If he could master some of those skills, he wouldn’t have to worry about getting ditched by Asura ever again.

Xia Xibei raised her glass and took a sip of water, laughing, “This is about my body’s nature, combined with a little bit of secret techniques. You won’t be able to master it even if I teach you.”

The two of them thought it was a pity, but there was nothing they could do about it.

If it was about the nature of one’s body, then it really wasn’t something that they could acquire despite their envy.

The world had such an enormous population with diversity in people; it simply wasn’t possible to duplicate them all.

“Are you just close with cats and dogs, or all animals in general?” Nie Zehai wanted to know.

“Hmm…So far, all I know is that cats and dogs are close with me. I’m not sure about other animals, as I’ve never tried it before.”

Xia Xibei certainly couldn’t tell them the whole truth. She couldn’t just reveal that it worked on all animals, could she?

That would frighten the hell out of them.

Even so, that alone was enough to make them envious.

“I don’t need much, I just want Asura to listen to me,” Yu Ziqi moaned.

“You could get help from Xibei,” Nie Zehai suggested.

“I know!” Yu Ziqi sighed, “But it always ditches me the second Xibei shows up!”

Nie Zehai and Pan Yan were both silent.

Wasn’t he finding fault with himself by comparing himself with Xia Xibei? Would the animals even spare another glance for other people if Xia Xibei was around?

Xia Xibei changed the subject with a smile, “Brother Hai, your new drama series is going to be aired soon, right?”

“Yup,” Nie Zehai nodded, “It’s going to be airing starting tomorrow.”

“Don’t worry, you’ll be just fine!”

Nie Zehai laughed frankly, “It’s okay, as long as I tried my best.”

He came from a wealthy family, and acting was merely an interest of his.

It was only natural that every actor wanted to gain recognition from the audience, and he was no exception.

All that he wanted was some recognition from people, but not the rise in one’s commercial value that came along with fame.

Moreover, it was also because of his disregard for the pay that he could set his mind to a more placid state and concentrate on improving his acting.

“You’ll succeed for sure!” Xia Xibei said in a serious manner. “One day, you’ll be so famous that you’ll have to go out in a disguise.”

Fame came with its own agonies. It was a miserable thing to be surrounded at all times and followed by fans everywhere one went.

Nie Zehai couldn’t help but laugh when he saw her taking the banter so seriously, but he followed along and pretended to be distressed.

“Yes, you’re right, it really is troublesome! If I become famous today and someone takes photos of this gathering that we’re having, rumors will start to spread. Let me think… ‘Nie Zehai on a Secret Date with Lover’! This title is exciting enough, I guess.”
