In fact, Huo Cheng was a little unreconciled when he went out in the morning.

He felt that Yan Zhi was going to become Zhai Xingchen’s full-time driver just because he didn’t go to work.

He had been thinking about this when he went to work today, and he was a little agitated.

Different from the strict and gentle persona he showed usually, he was aggressive and enterprising by nature. It was because of this strength that he could grow from a poor boy to a big boss with a net worth of over 100 million.

But romance was different from real life, and his every move was still being recorded by the camera, he had to face not only the likes and dislikes of Zhai Xingchen, but also the likes and dislikes of thousands of viewers, so whether in public or private, he had to restrain himself.

“When will our variety show be broadcast?”

“This Friday, satellite TV will start broadcasting at 8 o’clock, and the Internet will go online at 10 o’clock.”

“Are we going to be separated for a few days this Friday?” Huo Cheng asked.

“This stop in Nancheng will end on this Thursday. Friday, Saturday and Sunday are free time, so that everyone can coordinate their own work, and then we will meet up in Beicheng next Monday to record full-time.”

Lin Qingning said, “You guys didn’t ask clearly about this program before?”

For those of them who had jobs, these needed to be coordinated in advance.

“My assistant is helping me coordinate.” Huo Cheng said.

Wen Nuo also shook his head and said, “When I heard that I could be on this show, I came here without even thinking about it.”

He also participated in two interviews.

They were chatting when Pei Xu came back with a small suitcase in his hand.

“Why are you back so late today?” Huo Cheng asked.

Pei Xu said, “I just went home to get some things.”

Pei Xu took the suitcase and went back to the room.

Wen Nuo said in a low voice, “Have you seen the news? It seems that something happened to Pei Xu’s family.”

When Zhai Xingchen heard it, he asked, “What’s the matter?”

“The eldest son of the Zhou family sued Uncle Zhou, but this didn’t just happen today. The lawsuit started last month, but their house was tightly covered. It just leaked out today.” Lin Qingning said.

It was about Pei Xu’s personal affairs, so everyone didn’t discuss it in detail.

The Zhou family’s situation was complicated, and Zhai Xingchen knew it.

The common family background of the male protagonist in Jinjiang was that there would be a mistress involved, or a son of a different surname entered a wealthy family. In short, the living environment of the male protagonist must be extremely harsh. The same was true of Pei Xu’s life experience. His mother, Pei Huanong married Zhou Jiangbai, a wealthy man while taking along her son.

Pei Xu also strove for success, he could even be said to be outstanding, his male protagonist BUFF was full, Zhou Jiangbai often used Pei Xu in interviews as an example, and he did not hesitate to praise him.

But before Zhou Jiangbai married Pei Huanong, he already had four children with his ex-wife, three boys and one girl.

The Zhou family was a wealthy family that had been rich for three generations. It had great prestige in Nancheng. The Zhou family already had a thriving heir. And there were even constant battles between the second and third houses of the big house. As for the interior of each house, there were endless news of internal fighting. Zhou Jiangbai was almost seventy years old this year and had reached the stage of retirement. He was so fanatical in building momentum for Pei Xu, that his biological relatives were naturally a little scared.

Although they were rich enough, who would think they had too much money?

Zhou Jiangbai held a family meeting in the spring of this year and adjusted the positions of several sons in the company. This move was interpreted by the outside world as him paving the way for Pei Xu to take over, which caused great internal turmoil.

The eldest son who was the most ineffective turned against Zhou Jiangbai first and sued him.

A huge and influential business empire had reached a critical moment of renewal, and countless people were focusing on these matters of the Zhou family.

This was also one of the reasons why so many people were paying attention to Pei Xu’s “Red and Blue Signal”.

Pei Xu came out of the room wearing a black and grey shirt, and Zhai Xingchen immediately stood up when he saw it: “Hey.”

Pei Xu looked at him.

Zhai Xingchen smiled and said, “Finally it’s not pure black.”

Wen Nuo and Lin Qingning both glanced at Pei Xu when they heard the words and their eyes were full of surprise.

The black-grey shirt Pei Xu was wearing had an inconspicuous design embroidered with black thread on the chest, but the hand-embroidered pattern looked very expensive at first glance. The black thread was fine and dense, and the embroidery was more delicate than the fabric of the shirt and it shone a little when walking.

It really perfectly interpreted what low-key luxury was supposed to be.

Although he was tall, rich and handsome, Pei Xu’s dress style was completely different from his noble and elegant demeanour. He always dressed casually, with big-name sweatshirts, trousers and casually matched shoes, in a minimalist black and white style, sweatshirts were his most often worn attire.

But he had a noble temperament and fair skin. It could be seen at a glance that he was raised by a rich family. In fact, he would look even better if he wore more luxurious clothes.

Not only Zhai Xingchen and the others, but also Hu Ying was stunned when he came downstairs to see it.

“Have you had a haircut?” Hu Ying asked more carefully, watching people.

Pei Xu gave a “hmm”.

Zhai Xingchen stared at Pei Xu again after hearing the words: “Did you get a haircut? Why didn’t I see the difference.”

“I didn’t see it either,” Huo Cheng said.

“It’s a little shorter.” Lin Qingning adjusted his glasses, and his Adam’s apple slipped slightly.

Zhai Xingchen took another serious look.

Well, he really didn’t see it.

But this group of rich people would definitely not get a haircut once a month like him now. They would definitely have to have their hair trimmed every three to five days. So, only they could see the difference of a millimetre.

Lin Qingning asked Pei Xu: “Xingchen bought roses, do you want some?”

Yan Zhi also came out at this time.

Don’t pretend at this time, let’s wait for when.

Zhai Xingchen remembered the task assigned to him by the program group, so he hurriedly said, “Don’t finish the distribution, save some for me, it’ll be useful.”

Lin Qingning showed Pei Xu two flowers, they were very tender fans, and asked to see the color of joy in his heart.

Guo Bing and the others stared at the screen.

They wanted to see Pei Xu’s reaction.

“Give a close-up of his face, I want every subtle expression on his face.” Guo Bing said.

The camera zoomed in, and Pei Xu’s handsome face appeared on the screen.

He lowered his eyes slightly, pursed his lips and moved slightly, then suddenly turned his head and looked at the closest and most obvious lens they had set up.

“Fuck.” Guo Bing said rudely.

“He’s spotted our small thoughts, director!”

Screenwriter Liu pursed his lips, “It doesn’t matter, we’ll see how he chooses.”

“Either?” Lin Qingning asked.

But Pei Xu asked Zhai Xingchen: “Why did you think of buying flowers? The program team asked you to buy them?”

Zhai Xingchen was stunned for a moment.

Zhai Xingchen thought to himself that he was indeed the representative of high IQ among them, he even guessed it so easily?

Of course he couldn’t admit it with the task of being a tool man.

He smiled and said, “I learned from Brother Yan and Brother Huo. Everyone is sending flowers, and I can’t fall behind. If I don’t hurry up, I will really be left behind.”

He deliberately showed a bit of a shy appearance.

Lin Qingning laughed: “Ah, so the flowers were not given to us.”

Zhai Xingchen raised his head and looked at Lin Qingning when he heard that, his smile became even more shy.

Huo Cheng’s expression turned cold when he saw that little look as if he was in love.

Yan Zhi stuffed his hands into his trouser pockets and stood there watching.

Wen Nuo put back the flowers in his hand, looking lonely and pitiful, but he was still trying to smile, then let out a sigh of relief, put his hands behind his back, stretched his waist, and leaned against the dining table.

“You should take it, just give me some left over.” Zhai Xingchen added.
