The banquet lasted until late at night, during which there were many intertwined cups of wine and intrigues, and it was very lively.

But Shen Dongqing was not interested in endorsements or TV dramas, and because Fang Qi was next to him, many people came up to make friends. He didn’t like this kind of atmosphere. After being interrupted for the second time, he planned to leave the scene halfway.

Fang Qi asked: “Hey, Brother Shen, where are you going?”

Shen Dongqing put down the dinner plate: “It’s too boring, I’m leaving first.”

Fang Qi chased after him: “I also feel quite boring, Brother Shen, did you drive? How about I take you…”

The two left the venue one after the other.

The center of the banquet was very lively, but it became more and more deserted the further they walked outside. In the end, there were only two or three security guards left.

Fang Qi followed closely behind Shen Dongqing, talking constantly: “I really think this brand’s endorsement is very suitable for Brother Shen, why doesn’t Brother Shen think about it?”

Shen Dongqing: “I don’t know much about this, so forget it.”

There was a specialization in the art industry, and he who occupied someone else’s body halfway would definitely know nothing, so it was better not to.

Fang Qi: I have never seen such a sober and refined star!

Obviously the two met for the first time, but he felt that Shen Dongqing was very familiar, which made him want to call him “Dad” affectionately. Since this was the case, Fang Qi naturally wanted to give him the best resources.

But Shen Dongqing didn’t want it, and Fang Qi racked his brains to think about what resources to give.

“How about…” Fang Qi’s words came to an abrupt end.

The lights in the parking lot were a bit dim, and a person could be seen standing not far from the door, just at the edge of the lights, half-bright and half-dark.

He was leaning against the door of a black Mercedes-Benz, with his head down, playing with an unlit cigarette in his hand. The man heard the movement here, so he paused, and looked over.

Fang Qi shouted: “…Mr. Zhou.”

The origins of the two were similar, but the difference could be seen from the addresses of other people. The “Mr. Fang” was a wealthy second generation who relied on his good family background, spent time and money, and dreamt of a good life and death; while “Mr. Zhou” had taken over the family’s business early on, and had helped the Zhou family rise to a higher level.

Fang Qi knew that Zhou Wenyan had been busy with work and never got involved in this kind of banquet, so he didn’t know why he appeared here.

Zhou Wenyan’s eyes narrowed slightly, the original light brown eyes looking deep and heavy in the dark, his voice sounding a little hoarse: “Come here.”

Fang Qi:?

He was a little confused about what Zhou Wenyan meant, so he walked over hesitantly. Because he had no idea, he walked extremely slowly, but before he got to the front, he saw a figure passing him and walking towards Zhou Wenyan.

Fang Qi’s eyes widened.

What he saw was Shen Dongqing smiling as he rushed towards him, and Zhou Wenyan, who had never had a scandal and kept himself clean, reach out to catch Shen Dongqing. Judging from their posture, the two were very close.

Zhou Wenyan sounded helpless: “Why didn’t you just find me when you came out?”

Originally, every player who came out had to get the memory of the game erased, but Shen Dongqing bargained with the game to keep the memories of the two of them, so that they wouldn’t have to fall in love again after they came out.

The passage of time in the game was different from the outside, and Zhou Wenyan didn’t know how long he would have to wait for Shen Dongqing’s news.

Shen Dongqing was a little guilty: “I’m just…”

Before the explanation came out, Zhou Wenyan put his arms around him, lowered his head and kissed his brow, and sighed: “It’ll be fine since you have come back.”

Zhou Wenyan opened the car door and was about to take Shen Dongqing back, then he noticed Fang Qi, who had been standing by the side as a transparent person, and said: “Wait—”

Zhou Wenyan turned his head, and all the tenderness towards Shen Dongqing just now subsided, leaving only a cold and stiff face, but when he saw that it was Fang Qi, he became a little better.

“What’s the matter?”

Fang Qi was taken aback, and immediately forgot what he wanted to say just now. Seeing the impatient look on Zhou Wenyan’s face, he tried his best to choke out a sentence: “I, I want to ask what I just said about the endorsement…”

Zhou Wenyan: “Are you still a star?” It wasn’t to Fang Qi he asked, but Shen Dongqing who was sitting in the passenger cab.

“That’s right.” Shen Dongqing looked up at Zhou Wenyan, tugged at his sleeve, and said in a low voice, “We’ll talk about it when we go back.”

Zhou Wenyan said “Yes” and turned around to send Fang Qi away: “There is no need to speak for the endorsement. You are bothering me.”

Fang Qi lowered his head in disappointment: “Oh, oh.”

Zhou Wenyan glanced at him, opened the car door and sat in it. After a while, the sound of the engine starting was heard in the quiet parking lot, and then the car drove slowly out of the hotel parking lot.

Shen Dongqing half leaned on the car window, turned his head and looked at the people around him: “Where are we going?”

Zhou Wenyan: “Going home.”

When the game created a copy, it more or less referred to the real world, so the layout of the city was almost like in the game. Like the game copy, Zhou Wenyan also had an apartment in the city center, and now they were heading in that direction.

In the car, Shen Dongqing roughly explained his current identity.

“It’s just that I used someone else’s body. The original owner died long ago. He used to be a starlet. I don’t know about the others.”

Zhou Wenyan: “You don’t have to worry about other things. Do you still want to be a star? If not, you can change your identity.”

Shen Dongqing shook his head: “No. Since I am using someone else’s body, I should use it well, and continue to be a star, and don’t ruin other people’s reputation.”

In this short day, Zhou Wenyan had turned over reading the information on the original “Shen Dongqing”, and he knew that the original owner of this body had a bad reputation.

But seeing that Shen Dongqing was quite interested in becoming a celebrity, Zhou Wenyan didn’t tell him.

“Then do you want to act in any play?” Zhou Wenyan was already planning his connections.

Shen Dongqing thought for a while: “I think that “Science Online” is quite interesting, nothing else, as I don’t know how to act.”

The two talked about their future arrangements, and the car stopped slowly.

Shen Dongqing: “Are we there?”

Zhou Wenyan: “Well, we’re home.”

As soon as they entered the door, the two people who hadn’t seen each other for a long time hugged each other.

It may be due to past experience. But Shen Dongqing had always been a straightforward person, with obvious likes and dislikes. He never put on a show. He took the initiative to stretch out his arm to hook Zhou Wenyan’s neck and kissed him without any skill.

Zhou Wenyan pressed him, deepening the kiss.

Not long after, there was an ambiguous sound in the living room.

Shen Dongqing snorted softly, not knowing what happened, but his voice changed a bit: “I missed you so much.”

Zhou Wenyan’s answer was a little slower, and he said in a hoarse voice: “Me too.”

Brother Lu recently found that he seemed to have changed his luck.

First, a well-known entertainment company extended an olive branch to Shen Dongqing, his contract was then transferred from a small company to the big company, and he was also taken away with buy one get one free, and his salary was also doubled; then the director of “Science Online” said that because he appreciated Shen Dongqing, he wanted to quickly sign with him the resident guest contract without even haggling over the price; then he was given various endorsements to choose from, but Shen Dongqing was not very cooperative, so he picked and picked, and only chose one or two endorsements…

With the broadcast of “Science Online”, Shen Dongqing’s outstanding performance in the program won a group of diehard fans and he successfully crossed from the 18th line to the 17th line. After getting a little bit of fame, what the original owner did before was also revealed, but after the hard work of the fans, it was no longer a dark history.

Shen Dongqing was getting better, but Shen Luqiu was not feeling well over there.

After being slapped in the face by Fang Qi at the banquet, Shen Luqiu had not had any announcements for a while. He was not a big star in the first place. When he did not show his face, he would gradually be forgotten by fans. Under such a vicious circle, there was no announcement.

He stayed at home for a while, now watching the evaluation of Shen Dongqing on the Internet, he finally couldn’t hold back, so he put on a pair of sunglasses, and quietly drove to a place.

This place was remote and deserted, in the wilderness, but here was a luxurious villa that looked out of place.

Shen Luqiu was afraid that others would discover his identity, so he sneaked into the villa.

The owner of the villa was an immortal middle-aged man with a three-strand beard, wearing a Tang suit, with a bracelet in his hand, a complete three-piece suit suited for middle-aged and elderly people.

He glanced at Shen Luqiu, and said, “Didn’t you say that you won’t come to me again after the matter is over?”

Shen Luqiu took off his sunglasses, and compared to the previous period, his spirit was much more sluggish.

Ordinary people could only see that the improvement was not good, but those with a little ability could see that the dark air between his brows was getting thicker and thicker, and the luck that came out of nowhere was too thin to hold it back.

“What you said… didn’t work at all!” Shen Luqiu gritted his teeth.

The man in Tang suit gave a “huh”, looked at Shen Luqiu carefully, and said after a while: “It shouldn’t be like this, according to my arrangement, you should have successfully changed your life.”

Shen Luqiu’s face was gloomy: “Impossible, Shen Dongqing is still fine!”

The man in Tang suit turned the bracelet in his hand: “Don’t worry, there may be some mistakes.”

Shen Luqiu threw the sunglasses on the table: “I followed what you said and kept suppressing Shen Dongqing. Shen Dongqing’s career was pushed in a trough, but I didn’t expect him to turn around and get better.”

The man in Tang suit: “That’s because you didn’t hold him down, now you are the one who is falling.”

Shen Luqiu: “Master, what should we do now?”

The man in the Tang suit was silent and just rubbed his fingers.

Shen Luqiu understood and gestured a number with some pain.

The man in the Tang suit smiled with satisfaction: “It’s okay, when I do the Dharma, he will definitely have bad luck, and he can’t stand up and hinder you.”

Shen Luqiu: “I’m sorry, Master.” Afterwards, he went to the back room to get a small porcelain jar with a yellow talisman stuck on the mouth of the jar. He muttered something to the yellow talisman and made a gesture: “I’ll lend you my blood.”

Shen Luqiu stretched out his hand, and the man in Tang suit stabbed his palm, and a little blood fell on the yellow talisman, then the little blood disappeared faintly.

A gust of wind blew inexplicably in the living room.

The man in the Tang suit didn’t make any extra movements, let alone touch the small porcelain jar again, but the yellow talisman fell out of thin air, and the lid of the porcelain jar lifted off by itself, and the inside was empty, with nothing in it.

Shen Luqiu seemed to see a black shadow jumping out, and when he took a closer look, there was nothing, but he felt that someone was blowing air from behind him, which made his face turn pale.

“Okay.” The man in Tang suit said firmly, “It will succeed this time, the unlucky ghost has gone to haunt Shen Dongqing, you go back and wait for the good news.”
