Mo Zhen pressed the answer key, he heard a greeting from the other side of the phone.
“Mo Zhen … …”
For a moment, Mo Zhen was a little surprised, Xiang Yunze’s voice sounded very tired, but it also had a trace of faint uneasiness. Although Mo Zhen had known him for almost his entire life, he had only heard this tone of voice twice.
The first was because of his parents’ divorce, and the second time was when he decided to go abroad.
“What’s wrong, Yunze?” Mo Zhen subconsciously sat up straight, even his tone had become more serious.
“The Li family had a problem… …” Xiang Yunze at this point had recovered his voice and spoke normally, “I am now at the Central Hospital.”
Mo Zhen frowned, Xiang Yunze had once accidently mentioned it, the little girl he has been hiding this entire time also had the last name Li.
“What’s wrong with your little girlfriend?” In addition to what happened to her, Mo Zhen could not think of any reason that would make Xiang Yunze be in this distressed state.
The other side of the phone was quiet for a while, Xiang Yunze finally spoke, “She fell from the stairs, and now unconscious.”
Mo Zhen was silent for a moment and quietly said: “Do not worry, medicine has become very advanced these days; I’m sure she will be okay.”
Yunze mockingly laughed and said: “If I knew this was going to happen I would’ve studied medicine.”
When Xiang Yunze went to America for college, he majored in the subject that Mo Zhen hated the most- physics. Mo Zhen did not think Yunze would actually pursue a PhD in it, even becoming a visiting professor at a university.
Mo Zhen had always felt that a playboy prince like Xiang Yunze, would only go to college to have fun and play.
Mo Zhen sighed and said to the Xiang Yunze at the other end of the phone: “Don’t think too much, go home, take a bath and have a good sleep, maybe she will wake up tomorrow morning.”
“I won’t bother you any longer, big superstar, go sleep your beauty sleep.”
The corners of Mo Zhen’s mouth were slightly raised, “Someone like me, a natural beauty, will still need beauty sleep?”
Ah Yao: “…”
She did not know how the person on the other side of the phone responded, but in short, she was successfully disgusted by Mo Zhen’s sentence. After she listened the two talk about nonsense for a moment, she saw Mo Zhen hang up the phone, Ah Yao could not help but curiously ask, “Did your friend get into an accident?”
Mo Zhen glanced at Ah Yao, his hand held his cell phone as he walked to go upstairs, “You’re dead, why do you still have such a strong sense of curiosity?”
Ah Yao pouted and followed Mo Zhen to float upstairs.
Mo Zhen stopped and stared back at Ah Yao, “I’m going to the gym on the third floor, then I’ll take a bath and go to bed; do not follow me, if you want to play, stay on your side.”
Ah Yao: “…”
She always felt that Mo Zhen was always treating her like a pet dog.
Since she was warned to stay only in the living room, Ah Yao obediently drifted to the sofa to sit down. Mo Zhen did exactly as he said; exercised in the gym for an hour and then went to go to bed.
Ah Yao watched as the lights in Mo Zhen’s room on the second floor dimmed, she floated in the living room for a while and then turned on the TV once again.
This evening, God Forbidden Zone 2 was being broadcasted on TV, and Dr. Gao Sen had continued his research on “Resurrection” in his laboratory. The spread of the virus was causing more and more deaths in the human population, it had even led to people who were trapped in harsh conditions to start killing each other as a way to survive.
Ah Yao finished watching the movie, and on a whim she decided to open the laptop that was sitting on the living room table. The laptop that had been left in the living room did not have a password, allowing Ah Yao to enter the system very smoothly.
After the computer had rebooted, the mouse appeared to move up and opened the desktop browser. The sound of the keyboard was very unusual in the dark and quiet living room.
Ah Yao typed “Mo Zhen” into the search bar, soon, the browser had instantly found out more than 10 million results. Ah Yao’s eyes swept web page after web page and finally a gossip forum called the Cape caught her interest.
The forum had many pages, Ah Yao clicked the one that said entertainment gossip and found that the first post was a discussion on Mo Zhen.
[ “This morning I ate a hazelnut, I feel as if I am reenergized!”
O (* ^ @ ^ *) o”]
Ah Yao blinked a few times. There were a variety of Mo Zhen’s photos- photos of stills from the God Forbidden Zone series and photos from magazine shoots; Ah Yao found them all very dazzling. It wasn’t just the owner of the forum adding the photos, from time to time, other fans came in and added even more photos, fans would come in everyday full of spirit, and added even more material to the photo collection.
Ah Yao looked at all of the overflowing love fans had given to Mo Zhen and then remembered Mo Zhen’s various misdeeds towards her, and with great indignation she created her own ID, named Sadako, and decided to expose him to his fans.
[Your male god is a rude and arrogant guy! Your male god has an extremely petty character! Your male god actually likes to eat fruit pudding! Your male god even has a poster of himself hung up in his bedroom, this you should know!]
The keyboard clattered as Ah Yao angrily typed, she pressed the enter key after a long breath and finally felt very accomplished.
There soon was another reply after hers.
[ “Does Male god really like to eat fruit pudding? Or am I just daydreaming? (* / Ω * *)” ]
[ Look at her ID, then you will know that she has evil intentions towards Mo Zhen.”]
(probably referring to her ID as Sadako?)
[ “FML, she even robbed me of the 1000th floor! To the one called Sadako, do not run away when school ends, meet me on the rooftop!”]
[ “Am I the only one who is curious on how she knows that Mo Zhen posted a poster of himself in his bedroom?” ]
“Upstairs SB, do you believe in the words of an evil spirit?”
“I have reported that Sadako, no need to thank me.”
Ah Yao: “…”
What was the most painful disease in the entire world? The sheer ignorance of people ah! In this era, even if what you say is true, no one would believe it!
Ah Yao looked on as the amount of people trampling on her footprints increased, she decided that she would hide in silence for a while, however a new reply suddenly appeared, successfully stopping Ah Yao from shutting down the computer.
[ “You guys are all a group of brain-damaged people, was it because you watched too much of brain-damaged Mo Zhen’s Dr. Gao Sen that killed your brain cells? All he has is his face, if his so-called acting skills could win so many awards, then I don’t know how many people could suddenly become the king of the acting industry! And also, who knows how many times that handsome face has gone under the knife!” ]
This post sent the forum into a strange and eerie silence for a moment, and then … …
An overwhelming response attacked the forum like a machine gun firing reply after reply, Ah Yao had to refresh the page multiple times to keep up. The page that had the attack on Mo Zhen was filled with a blazing fire, in the face of a thousand troops, a single soldier had no chance to fight back. Even Ah Yao couldn’t help but scold her too.
[ You have brain damage! Your whole family has brain damage! When someone wins an award it’s because of money, when someone’s good looking it’s because they’ve gone under the knife? Does the mental hospital know about your severe opinions on people? The time you’re using to go online should be used for calling an ambulance!” ]
Ah Yao’s comment would soon be swept away by the flurries of comments that bombarded the screen, but quite a few people had seen it.
[ “(⊙_ ⊙) Sadako had an unexpected burst of combat power ah.” ]
[ “Is Sadako supposed to be black or what? There are some things I can no longer understand… …” ]
[“Black powder. The surface is black, but the heart is filled with love for Mo Zhen 2333333333333” ]
(I searched it up! Black powder refers to someone who maliciously smears a famous person)
[“Seeing how much you love Mo Zhen, I won’t take revenge for stealing my 1000th floor anymore.” ]
Ah Yao: “…”
[“Sadako Sadako, Does our male god really have a poster in his room? A picture to reveal the truth ah.”]
[“” (→) → → But if you post a picture how can you confirm it’s Mo Zhen’s bedroom?]
Ah Yao: “…”
She silently quit the forum, and shut off computer.
The world was truly crazy, it would be better if she didn’t go on the internet frequently.
When the sun began to rise, Mo Zhen’s biological clock woke him up on time. His long curled lashes were like butterfly wings, Mo Zhen’s eyes opened a crack.
“Good morning, Mr. Landlord. Today, we must work hard!” Ah Yao stood in the window of Mo Zhen’s bedroom, bowed and smiled.
Mo Zhen: “… …”
Hey, this Li Gouhai, you didn’t stand here all night right?!
Thinking about how it was totally possible, Mo Zhen could not help but have goosebumps.
The phone rang and Tang Qiang’s name popped onto the screen, “Good morning, Emperor Mo! Today, we must work hard!”
Mo Zhen: “… …”
Was Tang Qiang being possessed right now?
“Emperor Mo, I have some good news to tell you, you have an assistant! Today they will come to report!”
Mo Zhen’s raised his eyebrow, and sat up from the bed, “What kind of person are they?”
“A lovely sister, you will like it!”
“… …” strange.
After he had hung up the phone, Mo Zhen saw Ah Yao staring at him with her big eyes, and he followed her line of sight.
His loose pajamas hung slanted on his shoulders, the two buttons that had opened when he was asleep exposed his collarbone and left shoulder.
Mo Zhen raised his eyebrows as he rebuttoned his collar; grabbing the pillow behind him, he yelled, “Get out ah, goat!”
The pillow flew through Ah Yao’s body unaffected, Ah Yao laughed twice, turned and floated out of Mo Zhen’s bedroom.
When Mo Zhen finished dressing and went downstairs, Ah Yao was taking the bread out of the toaster, she put the two slices of bread down on the plate, and floated to Mo Zhen’s side, Mo Zhen rubbed his head and took a deep breath. “We’re not filming “The Ring”,” he said. “Could we not do these special effects?”
Ah Yao: “…”
The plate in front of Mo Zhen turned a full circle, and floated back to the living room table.
Mo Zhen walked to the front of the kitchen to take a piece of bread, and as always, took a piece of a lemon to bite on.
When the Bentley was driven out of the garage, it was just half past six. Ah Yao was once again sitting in the front passenger seat; she was in a good mood today and hummed a tune along the ride.
Mo Zhen glanced at her and asked: “Have you remember who you are?”
“Then why are you in a good mood today?”
Ah Yao: “… …” Hmph, she did not want to tell him that she had spent all last night smearing his reputation black on the internet.
The studio was the same as yesterday- surrounded by reporters and various cars of all shapes and sizes. Mo Zhen’s car, in all of its grace and beauty, drove into the parking a lot and stopped beside his “nanny’s car”
“Mo Zhen, I’ll introduce you, this is the Xiao Xi, your new assistant.”
Mo Zhen had just come out the car and saw Tang Qiang coming over with a woman. The young woman looked to be around 23-24 years old, she wore a white t-shirt with jeans and had shoulder-length black hair that was combed into a sleek ponytail at the back. She only had a pair of black-rimmed glasses on her face, and did not appear to have makeup on, nevertheless, her entire appearance looked very clean and fresh.
When Xiao Xi saw Mo Zhen, her face flushed with excitement, “You, Hello! I am Mo Zhen! No, no, I am a Xiao Xi, very pleased to be your assistant, Emperor Mo!”
