Zhou Lan was free in the afternoon and came to watch the field again.

Romance was always the highlight at night.

After watching over a dozen monitors, she saw that Pei Xu was still the same old misfit, lying on the sofa alone playing a boring Sudoku game. He had only been in “Red and Blue Signal” for two days.

In the beginning, Hu Ying and the others actually came to join in the fun, but for Pei Xu it was just a small game to pass the time, but for ordinary people it was too much brain-intensive, Hu Ying and the others gave up after trying twice.

He played this, others couldn’t understand, and they were too embarrassed to disturb him, but he was happy by himself.

“Call him over,” Zhou Lan said.

The staff called Pei Xu over, and when Pei Xu put on a sweater and hat and went out, he saw Hu Ying standing alone in the rain.

Hu Ying also saw him.

Pei Xu went directly to the next door.

Hu Ying froze for a moment, then snorted coldly.

The staff of the program group seldom entered the red and blue cottages and spent most of their time in the building next door. This building was also a two-story building, but because there were too many staff members, it looked very crowded. Pei Xu walked through the workstations of a bunch of staff and entered the room inside.

As soon as he entered, he saw Zhou Lan sitting on a chair, smoking a cigarette.

She had been under a lot of stress recently and thus smoking a lot.

It was not easy for the rich second generation to start a business.

Seeing Pei Xu, Zhou Lan frowned: “What did you promise me?”

Pei Xu sat down on the chair, like a deflated ball, and said lazily, “It’s boring.”

“So, why are you bored?”

“You said you’re not strong.” Zhou Lan asked, “You don’t feel well, are you sick?”

“No.” Pei Xu said, “I just can’t lift up, and I have a headache.”

Zhou Lan said, “You know you are participating in a romance show, right? You know how important this show is to me, right? I don’t want such a popular variety show to be ruined by you. Do you know how difficult it is for me to start a business? If you don’t support me, I’m a weak woman, who has lost all her wealth…”

“You’ve said it eight hundred times.” Pei Xu interrupted her.

Zhou Lan handed him a cigarette.

“No smoking.”

Zhou Lan put the cigarette back and sat down on the corner of the table: “Anyway, I don’t care if you have someone you like or not. Nine out of ten people who participate in the romance show were not really there for dating. They can become a couple for one season. It’s not bad, most of the others are making soy sauce, so you have to make soy sauce well, at least let the audience enjoy watching you as a guest in a romance drama. I don’t care, you have to choose one, give it to me, so that it can be broadcast.”

“For example?”

Zhou Lan thought for a while: “Let me make an analogy, for example, Huo Cheng is chasing Zhai Xingchen, and the two of them are a CP line. You don’t like either of them, right, but you can have more contact with Zhai Xingchen, and you don’t need to say ambiguous words or do ambiguous actions. No need, you just watch him more and spend more time with him. Later, we can edit them into clips by themselves. You are so smart, you must understand what I mean?”

Pei Xu frowned, and Zhou Lan reached out to support his frowning: “Don’t frown all the time, you are young.”

Pei Xu said: “Huo Cheng is chasing Zhai Xingchen?”

“I’m just making an analogy.”

“You didn’t just make an analogy, did you?” Pei Xu asked.

Zhou Lan said: “Yes, the two of them are showing signs now.”

“Haven’t you always matched red and blue?”

“We never said that our program can only match red and blue. Our goal is of course red and blue matching. In the past, red and blue produced CP, but this does not mean that blue and red cannot produce CP internally. Comrade, it’s like this, you can mix it up, we have always followed CP, not created CP.”



“Got it.”

“What do you know?”

“In the future, I will stay with Zhai Xingchen and look after him more,” Pei Xu said.

Zhou Lan looked at him for a while: “I really don’t know if you are really frigid or asexual. I introduced you to girls, but you ignored them. These male guests on our show are all top boys, right? Didn’t you like them?”

“Just treat me as asexual.” Pei Xu stood up, “There’s nothing else to do, if not, I’ll stay with Zhai Xingchen.”

Zhou Lan: “…… “

Zhou Lan felt that it might be wrong for her to have called Pei Xu over to participate in this show even when she exhausted all her human relationships in the first place.

From childhood, Pei Xu seemed to really be not interested in love.

From childhood to adulthood, no matter whether it was abroad or at home, she had never seen him get close to anyone.

He didn’t even have any special friends.

Pei Huanong was also very supportive of asking him to participate in this variety show.

You see, even his mother felt that her son was only studying stock funds every day.

Pei Xu was a typical troublemaker, he couldn’t do anything, and he didn’t have to do anything, he just needed to stand there, and he could attract everyone’s admiration.

Some people were born heroes.

She originally thought that Pei Xu was handsome enough and famous enough to come to their show, even if he didn’t take the initiative himself, he would still be the central figure in the Shura field.

But after two days of observation, she suddenly realized something.

The setting of Pei Xu and the love affair between rich and powerful families was incompatible.

Common people may be dazzled by Pei Xu’s light, but this group of rich second generations all had good looks and a family background, regardless of whether it was the people they interacted with every day or their former boyfriends, which one was any different?

They were all famous people. In a popular variety show with such a wide audience, they really didn’t need to lick Pei Xu, this indifferent maniac.

It had only been two days of recording, and there were two accidents.

A heavyweight guest was not as popular as expected, and a guest who was found to make up the number unexpectedly became the central figure in the Shura field today.

The loss that Pei Xu brought to her can only be healed by Zhai Xingchen now.

She went back to the next room. In the dark room, more than a dozen monitors were turned on at the same time, and every corner of the red and blue cottage could be seen in full view.

“What is Hu Ying doing outside?” she asked.

“He’s waiting for Yan Zhi.” Director Guo Bing said excitedly.

Zhou Lan let out a long breath.

Finally, one of the CP lines they focused on before was progressing smoothly.

“Why didn’t you send someone to follow?”

The only cameras that could capture Hu Ying now were the two cameras at the door and the parking garage, because it was raining heavily outside, the light had become very dim, and it was almost impossible to see Hu Ying’s expression clearly.

“Now we try not to follow the camera, so that the guests will be more relaxed, and the pictures will be more immersive and realistic, which can satisfy the audience’s voyeuristic desire to the greatest extent.” Guo Bing explained.

Zhou Lan nodded, and then went to look at the picture in the kitchen.

Zhai Xingchen was cooking, and Huo Cheng and Wen Nuo were standing beside him.

Compared with Hu Ying’s side, the picture quality here was much clearer. Multiple hidden cameras could capture almost every subtle expression on everyone’s face.

“You go to the living room to play.” Huo Cheng suddenly said to Wen Nuo.

Wen Nuo raised his head: “I’ll help Xingchen fight by the side.”

“It’s enough for me to help him.” Huo Cheng said, “Be obedient and go play.”

Wen Nuo looked at Huo Cheng and saw Huo Cheng smiling, and after staring at him for a while, Wen Nuo suddenly smiled, and then took off his gloves: “Thank you for your hard work.” Zhai Xingchen was getting oil, as he watched Wen Nuo run to the living room, then turned his head to look at Huo Cheng.

“You can’t do that,” he said.

Huo Cheng said: “Whatever you want me to do, just tell me.”

“I think Wen Nuo is pretty good.” Zhai Xingchen said.

Huo Cheng glanced at him: “Do you like him?”

Zhai Xingchen didn’t want the program crew to record his voice, so he said in a barely audible voice: “I think he’s really good. You…”

He didn’t say the second half of the sentence, he only gestured with his eyes.

Huo Cheng just smiled and didn’t speak.

Zhai Xingchen sighed helplessly.

Emotional matters could not be forced, and he could only suggest a little bit.

“How long did you sleep today?” Huo Cheng asked.

“I didn’t notice, but it wasn’t as long as you.”

Huo Cheng said: “I slept for a long time, and I had a good dream. After waking up, I was still unsatisfied, thinking about continuing to sleep, to see if I could continue dreaming, and fell asleep again.”

Zhai Xingchen looked up at him: “Then did your dream continue?”

Huo Cheng was about to speak when he saw Pei Xu coming out from the entrance.

Pei Xu didn’t go to the living room, but walked directly to the kitchen.

Both Zhai Xingchen and Huo Cheng looked at Pei Xu, who took a bottle of mineral water and stood in front of them.

The camera zoomed in and gave a bust. Huo Cheng was standing on the left side of Zhai Xingchen, and the two were facing the camera. Pei Xu was standing in front of them on the right, showing a distinctly handsome profile. Three top handsome guys appearing in the same screen, coupled with the lighting of the kitchen, was more eye-catching than idol dramas.

Huo Cheng smiled and asked, “Did you go out just now?”

Pei Xu said: “Yes”.

Huo Cheng asked, “Did you see Hu Ying?”

Pei Xu nodded, unscrewed the lid and drank two sips of water.

Zhai Xingchen turned his head and glanced at Huo Cheng.

He discovered that Huo Cheng knew everything.

Sure enough, Huo Cheng laughed softly and said, “Was he waiting for Yan Zhi?”

Pei Xu raised his eyebrows: “Really? I was wondering why he stood there alone.”

“It seems that you have feelings for our cottage now. But you don’t quite understand the situation yet.” Huo Cheng laughed, propped his hands on the countertop, and moved his body slightly closer to Zhai Xingchen.

Zhai Xingchen thought, it’s not that Pei Xu didn’t understand, but he was too lazy to understand.

Others’ heart was in the hut, but his heart was in the stock fund.

In the end, he heard Pei Xu say flatly, “It’s not that I don’t understand at all.”

Next door, the light from the screen illuminated everyone’s eyebrows.

They pursed their lips one by one, their eyes excited, and some even clenched their small fists excitedly.

“It was still useful to talk to Pei Xu, sister Zhou.”

“It’s not that I don’t understand…this sentence is obviously very common, why am I so excited when I hear it!”

“When said with a stinky face, it’s even better!”

“Yes, yes, it’s a bit yin and yang and a little sour!”

“Huo Cheng’s words are also very good when you think about it, he took the initiative to mention the ambiguous relationship between Yan Zhi and Hu Ying in front of Zhai Xingchen, was he counting out his rival in love?”

“Ah, yes, I’m so petty!”
