The Master of Metaphysics is The Movie Queen – Chapter 4

TMMTMQ – Chapter 4


Gong Qingyao only then noticed the price hanging directly in front of her, the lowest price room of this hotel was 588 yuan per night.
In fact, Gong Qingyao has no idea about silver. In the past, someone always gave her silver, and as she only use them for food and clothing she was never short on anything. Now silver was changed into banknotes, and she didn’t know the value even more, but one thing Gong Qingyao could be sure was that the original owner was really poor. The little girl said that all her belongings were in this bank card, but she couldn't even pay for the room.
Since she couldn’t afford to stay, then she would check out. Gong Qingyao was about to take back her bank card, when she heard someone say behind her, "I’ll pay Miss Gong’s room."
She saw a young man standing behind her. Soon Gong Qingyao knew why the man said that. Besides for Cheng Lei who was standing next to the man, there was also a woman holding a child. The child was the child Liu Mei held yesterday.
The man looked good so Gong Qingyao said, "Okay, I will pay you back in the future."
"Miss Gong is the benefactor of our family. The room payment is not that much." The man was called Deng Xiuming, a well-known young and promising person in S City. He was one of the candidates for S City Mayor, "Is Miss Gong free? Can we go to the tea shop over there to talk?"
Gong Qingyao said, "Okay." After she finished speaking, she held the box and followed everyone to the tea shop on the first floor.
Cheng Lei really didn't expect the child to be Deng Xiuming's. Yesterday after he sent Gong Qingyao back to the hotel, he saw Deng Xiuming and thought that he came to do inspection even though it was so late. Only after asking him did he know that the child was Deng Xiuming's. Yesterday night Deng Xiuming's family thought that Gong Qingyao would have been resting, so they asked Cheng Lei to take them to thank Gong Qingyao today. That was why they were here now.
After everyone sat down, Deng Xiuming said first, "We don't know how to thank Miss Gong. This is something as our gratitude, I hope Miss Gong will not refuse." He took out a bank card and put it on the table.
The woman on the side also said, "Thank you."
Her name was Ji Xiayun. She and Deng Xiuming met at school and fell in love. They had a very good relationship for a few years before they got married. They gave birth to a baby this year, and her mother-in-law moved to their house on the grounds of helping take care of the baby.
Deng Xiuming was busy with official duties and often ignored his wife's feelings every day. However, due to hormones after giving birth, Ji Xiayun mood was often down. After a long time, Ji Xiayun really became depressed.
Yesterday, Ji Xiayun planned to take the child to commit suicide. She did not expect her child would be robbed on the way. Seeing the car carrying her child go further and further away, she desperately called the police to seek help. Fortunately, the police notified her in less than an hour that they have found her child.
Generally speaking, after a child was abducted, the possibility of being retrieved was very small. Ji Xiayun was also prepared not to find her child for a lifetime. She did not expect to hear the news that her child was retrieved. The feeling of happiness and relief made Ji Xiayun give up the idea of ​​suicide. .
Gong Qingyao nodded, "Live well, the future will be better."
Ji Xiayun eyes immediately reddened.
Deng Xiuming looked at his wife, always feeling that he still had something unclear, if it wasn't because the child was lost, he wouldn’t even feel this. His mother scolded his wife so badly, he stretched out his hand to hold his wife's shoulders, and whispered, "It's okay."
Gong Qingyao opened the box that she had brought, revealing something yellowish.
Cheng Lei, who was drinking water, craned his neck and glanced, almost choked, "What did you buy so much yellow paper for?"

"Drawing talismans," Gong Qingyao replied.

Cheng Lei: ...
Cheng Lei expression showed ‘Of course. I see’ confusingly.
Gong Qingyao intended to accept Deng Xiuming's card, not because she helped them find the children, no matter who this happened to, she would do the same. She would accept the card because she had no money. In return, she planned to draw a talisman for the other party, knowing that her talismans were hard to find even in the past, they were very precious.
After the box was opened, Gong Qingyao took out the talisman paper and cinnabar, then started to draw quickly.
The corner of Cheng Lei's mouth twitched, surely, Gong Qingyao really drew talisman here.
As soon as Gong Qingyao's voice fell, Cheng Lei felt that the atmosphere changed. He then saw the yellow paper emitting a faint yellow light. Cheng Lei pointed at the talisman and said incoherently, "It, It, It..."
Deng Xiuming probably has more knowledge than Cheng Lei. Although his reaction was not so exaggerated, his expression was also very shocked. Ji Xiayun on the side has forgotten to cry and stared at all this blankly.
Gong Qingyao folded the talisman and handed it to Deng Xiuming, "Keep it safe."
Deng Xiuming took the talisman and handed it to Ji Xiayun. As Ji Xiayun was about to put the talisman on the child's shirt, Gong Qingyao drew another talisman, "This, give it to the child.” The child was abducted yesterday and was frightened. Now a Talisman for Requiem might be more suitable.
"Thank you." Ji Xiayun took the talisman and put it in her baby's jacket along with the safekeeping talisman just now.
Cheng Lei, who was sitting aside, wondered why he wanted one too.
After drawing the talismans, Gong Qingyao was about to leave, as she stood her phone rang, it was Ai Xiaoyun, Gong Qingyao slid to connect, "Gong Qingyao, where do you stay? I have already arrived in S city."
Gong Qingyao replied, "Holiday Hotel."
"What? You actually stay in Holiday Hotel? You are chic. You can afford to stay in a four-star hotel?" Ai Xiaoyun said a lot, Gong Qingyao felt she was too noisy. But thinking of the original owner saying that mixing in the entertainment industry depended on an agent, Gong Qingyao patiently did not hang up, just held the phone a bit far away.
Everyone looked at Gong Qingyao, always feeling that the master action just now was a little disillusioning.
After three minutes of chatting, Ai Xiaoyun hung up, Gong Qingyao put her cell phone away, and nodded to Deng Xiuming. After leaving the tea room, Ai Xiaoyun arrived half an hour later.
Seeing Gong Qingyao, Ai Xiaoyun felt that the other party had changed a little. Apart from the fact that Gong Qingyao didn’t wear heavy makeup like before, her temperament was also a little different. She was obviously the same physically but her temperament was different. Ai Xiaoyun looked at her. When Gong Qingyao was watching Ai Xiaoyun, Gong Qingyao was also watching Ai Xiaoyun's face.
Ai Xiaoyun on the side looked at Gong Qingyao and took out a document, "This time the reality show, mainly..."
Ai Xiaoyun chatted and said a lot, Gong Qingyao briefly summarized and found Ai Xiaoyun’s other artist Yu Chuxue found a gold master, and the gold master wanted to support her, so he planned a live broadcast wild reality show and invited the famous You Xingyu. As for Gong Qingyao, she was just a foil. (TN: Gold master = sugar daddy/momma)
Seeing Gong Qingyao not speaking, Ai Xiaoyun continued, "It is precisely because Yu Chuxue and you are both under my management that I have won this place. You must perform well."
"Thank you, I will." Gong Qingyao said.
Ai Xiaoyun didn't expect Gong Qingyao to answer so seriously, thinking that this girl has finally made progress.
When Gong Qingyao on the side saw Ai Xiaoyun talking about the reality show, she said, "You have a financial disaster in the near future, so you must be careful when you give out money."

Ai Xiaoyun: ???
Ai Xiaoyun thought that Gong Qingyao has changed, but it seemed that she hasn't changed at all. Ai Xiaoyun said angrily, "I said Gong Qingyao, you just need to act well, don't make any trouble for me." She left. She hated iron for not becoming steel*. (*TN: Idiom, meaning to feel resentful towards someone for failing to meet expectations and impatient to see improvement. Here
Gong Qingyao didn’t care. She picked up the script Ai Xiaoyun had given and read it. Within half an hour, Gong Qingyao finished reading. There would be six people in the reality show, three men and three women. Most of the lines in it were for Yu Chuxue and You Xingyu. As for her, Gong Qingyao could probably summarize it in three sentences:
"Wow! Chuxue, you are great."
"Wow! Chuxue, you are so smart."
"Wow! Chuxue, you even know this. "
These three lines were not difficult, but it was a bit difficult for Gong Qingyao's to say, Gong Qingyao intended to act later.
Taking advantage of the fact that there were still a few days before the recording of the reality show, Gong Qingyao intended to fully utilize this gap.
She woke up in the morning and went to the mountains outside the city of S to practice Qi. She drew a spiritual energy gathering talisman so that her Qi training could achieve multiply effect with less effort. After returning to the hotel, she began to use the laptop to learn modern knowledge.
The law was the first thing she learn, in addition to the new things brought about by the changes of the times. To Gong Qingyao's surprise, many books about the past could be found on the internet, but only a few fragments were left. Of course, there was also an annoyance, which was, the society really did not respect metaphysics nowadays. To be more precise, people called this profession a magic trick, and to put it bluntly called them a liar.
Gong Qingyao even tried to search for his own name. However, there was no relevant information on the Internet, not even her past enemy. It seemed that they have never existed before, but this matter has become history, so it was not worth mentioning.
While digesting a lot of knowledge, Gong Qingyao would also learn about the entertainment industry. She watched a lot of reality shows, and she has understood the system somewhat. If Gong Qingyao searched for the original owner’s information on the website, she could found some news, such as the advertisements, photos from magazines, and Weibo of the original owner.
The original owner’s laptop could automatically log in to Weibo, but Gong Qingyao did not plan to use this Weibo. As for the Weibo that the little girl used before, Gong Qingyao would not delete it. It's just that Gong Qingyao found that Weibo was a good tool, she could absorb a lot of knowledge and got some new things.
So Gong Qingyao registered a Weibo with her own name, the name was Gong Qingyao (宫青爻), and the personal profile was written as ‘Master of Metaphysics’. After thinking about it, Gong Qingyao also posted a Weibo.
[Gong Qingyao: First comment, free fortune-telling once.]
After the Weibo was posted, no one responded for a long time. Gong Qingyao knew that she had no followers, so very few people could see this Weibo. But everything was depending on fate, so Gong Qingyao did not force it. She quit Weibo and continued to browse internet to learn.
Gong Qingyao didn’t go to rest until ten o’clock in the evening. She slept until midnight. But her surroundings were noisy and the musics from the bar and restaurant below were getting louder and louder. Gong Qingyao got up and drew a talisman on the wall. The world then became quiet, and all kinds of noises downstairs could not reach Gong Qingyao's room.
However, half an hour later, there was a knock on the door.

If you enjoy my work, please consider sending this sleep deprived mtl-er some ko-fi. =)
