You’re Beautiful When You Smile
Chapter 31 Part 4
Ming god paused a bit, then he seemed to make up his mind. No
longer looking at Lu Yue, he turned to look at Little Fatty instead and
suddenly spoke, “Little Fatty, you got it all wrong. There’s more to it
than what you’re seeing on the video. Ah Yue wouldn’t let me tell you
about it all because he’s afraid the incident would affect you-- --”
Lu Yue, who seemed to huddle up at the corner, abruptly stood up
from the couch. “Yu Ming.”
Lu Sicheng lifted his foot to kick Lu Yue’s knee. Lu Yue screeched
and fell back into the couch. Lu Sicheng stared at him as a warning,
then turned to ask Ming god, “I knew it wasn’t as simple as that. You
better tell us what exactly happened.”
The story began just as the summer season ended last year.
ZGDX had won the summer season championship and earned an
invitation to play in the world finals. It was an occasion for celebration.
After the celebration banquet, the team moved to KTV for karaoke.
Since the next day was a day off, everyone was drinking. Lu Yue had a
bit too much and everyone sent Yu Ming, who didn’t drink at all, to take
Lu Yue to the restroom to wash his face and sober up……
On their way back, they ran into a group from team JK-- --This team was
originally attached to CK as its B team. Later on, it moved up from the
minor league to the professional major league. Since it was against the
rules to have two teams of the same club listed under the major league,
JK was sold to the son of a rich family, A. He spent big money to buy JK
so he could play professionally.
A became the captain of JK. Though he played well enough, he was
still far from
the professional level. Even though he had four other professional players
to support him, the team was still being bombarded at competitions…...
In the end, the team was at the bottom of the group and had to play another
low ranked team from the other group in a relegation match. The loser of
said relegation match would drop back down to the minor league. JK ended
up being said losing team-- --
Instead of hating the team which defeated them at the relegation match,
they blamed ZGDX, which was already guaranteed to move forward to the
next round, for not letting JK win one match so they could avoid being placed
at the bottom of the group.
“Damn it! If it wasn’t for those ZGDX bastards, we wouldn’t have been
downgraded just by losing one match! Even if we lost the match between
the second to last teams, we could still have had a chance to defeat second
ranked junior league team to keep our place in the major league.”
“We might not be able to defeat a major league team, but taking down a
junior team would be as easy as eating cake.”
“I just saw those guys from ZGDX. Looks like they’re celebrating winning
the championship. They’re here, too.”
“Ha, now they’ve got the invitation, they’re so bloated with arrogance.
Disgusting-- --What do they have to gain from getting us downgraded?
Why couldn’t they just go easy on us? A Ge spent so much money to buy
the chance to play in the tournament and got downgraded just after one
season. All the money has been thrown into the water……”
They were talking very loud inside their private room, almost drowning
the singing from the next room…...Lu Yue who was supported by Ming god
suddenly stopped in front of their room when he overheard the conversation-- --
People inside the room continued talking. A person who had been quiet up
till now, the person referred to as A Ge by his teammates, smirked and spoke
in a surly voice, “They think they’re going to the finals? In their dreams! We
have to let them have a taste of what we’ve been through……”
As he spoke, the room grew quiet, even those who were singing had
turned off the music.
Under the gaze of his JK teammates, A Ge took out his cell phone and
dialed a number. After the call connected, he spoke in a particularly pleasant tone-- --
“Go find a few more people to come outside the Caesar KTV. En, I’ll let
you know when they come out…...You don’t need to do anything, just waste
their hands. Haha, right, right, right-- --professional players-- --they can still play,
with their feet…...Oh, remember, don’t touch the two good looking ones among
them. They’re from the Lu family, it’ll be big trouble if you hurt them. Don’t worry
about the others, do whatever you must. I’ll cover you if you get sued for damages.
Hurry and come over, I’m afraid they’ll leave soon.”
The voice inside the room could be heard clearly out in the hallway.
