TMMTMQ – Chapter 38
Gong Qingyao took a look at the flaws mentioned last time, and found that Shi Gaoyi had changed it seriously. She could not help but nodded, especially the sculpture in front of the company, which was built very well.
Upon seeing this, Shi Gaoyi was happier and guided Gong Qingyao to his office. Gong Qingyao then took the jade and copper artifact she made out, "Put this on the first floor together with Mountain Tai stone."
Shi Gaoyi's eyes lit up, and he respectfully took the item over, "Thank you Master Gong." He didn't expect that the artifact mentioned last time was ready so soon, he thought it would take Gong Qingyao at least a few years.
The texture of the jadeite was good. More importantly, as soon as he touched this item, he felt very comfortable. At first, the string of Five Emperor coins also gave this feeling, but later it disappeared. It seemed that this item was really better than the Five Emperor coins.
The comfortable air that Shi Gaoyi felt was spiritual energy, but he was not a cultivator, so he didn't know this. Gong Qingyao left after explaining these things, and Shi Gaoyi gratefully sent Gong Qingyao to leave. Then he ordered people to put the jade and copper coin together with the Mountain Tai Stone. He had set up an infrared forbidden area around the Mountain Tai Stone, and then he transferred another one million yuan to Gong Qingyao.
When she received the transfer, Gong Qingyao was calculating the whereabouts of some children. After the thirty tasks were completed, Gong Qingyao began to open the remaining jade rough stones she bought. There were still many of these rough stones, and there was also some portion still left of the black sandalwood.
Gong Qingyao put down the soul-breaking knife after opening three rough stones. Lu Qianqian and Feifei on the side were tossing Gong Qingyao’s mobile phone. Lu Qianqian reached the second level of ghost cultivation. Although she could touch some objects, it was only once at a time and it required some down time. It took Lu Qianqian three minutes to just open Weibo, in the end Feifei couldn't stand it and came to help.
Seeing that Gong Qingyao was finished, Lu Qianqian hurriedly said, "Master, you have black powder."
Through Lu Qianqian's science popularization just now, Feifei also understood what black powder was. This caused him to raise its head and bared his teeth. (TN: Black powder = malicious commenter. They could be a dedicated anti-fans, or just people that leave demeaning comments on particular celeb.)
These black powders expressed dissatisfaction.
The Luer headphone advertisement made many people notice Gong Qingyao, and with the variety show second episode broadcast on Durian TV, Gong Qingyao also gained a lot of fans, but black fans also appeared at the same time.
Gong Qingyao took the phone and started to read Weibo.
[Give me a guide @Gong Qingyao Weibo, you can always find some surprises when you go and check it out.]
[My mother, what are these photos she posted.]
[How come I feel that I am deceived?]
[You know, if she actually chose another image, why didn't she delete the previous pictures?]
[Don't say that it is not her account, she looks exactly the same, don't think that people won’t recognize her just because of the heavy makeup.]
[Don't fight for a person that is not here. Look at her Weibo, it hasn't been updated for half a year.]
[Yes, what’s wrong with using heavy makeup?]
[So what if she changed? What does this have to do with character?]
[That's it, don’t judge a person’s past style.]
These fans that defended Gong Qingyao had followed her all the way, and now they had a leader, together with each other, they quickly attacked the black fans. The black fans found that it was not useful to criticize on Weibo, so they started looking for other outlets.
[No matter what she used to be, just look at her now. Why do I always feel that this master persona is such a fake?]
[Actually, I don’t have any objection if she uses a master persona. But if you look at it, she still has to wash her hands, bathe, and change clothes, right? She is so calculating, too fake (Gong Qingyao.gif)]
[@Cloudless Fortune-teller, is this fortune telling? (Gong Qingyao.gif)]
The black fans reposted this Weibo one after another, and @ Cloudless Fortune-teller.
There were many fortune-telling people on Weibo. Cloudless Fortune-teller was just one of them. It's just that he was very interactive with fans and often responded to fans' questions, so many people @ this person. Probably it was too much, so the fortune teller Cloudless Fortune-teller came out to reply.
[Cloudless Fortune-teller: I have seen the gif pictures you sent me today. The posture of this fortune-telling is impeccable, but these six coins are the most cumbersome of all fortune-telling. How can she calculate it so quickly? Everyone just see this as an entertainment show.]
What this means was that Gong Qingyao’s fortune-telling posture was correct, but how can fortune-telling be so fast? Plus this was a variety show, which was obviously false. Everyone should just treat this as entertainment and should not take it seriously.
Cloudless Fortune-teller was a person with five million followers. As soon as he said this, some neutral young people directly stood on the opposite side of Gong Qingyao and commented on the failure of Gong Qingyao’s master persona.
Lu Qianqian asked on the side, "Do you want to reply to him?"
"No," Gong Qingyao said.
Lu Qianqian thought about it. Now Gong Qingyao's followers were too few, compared Cloudless Fortune-teller’s five million, it was really not enough manpower, it's right not to reply back now.
Luer's public relations department saw this scene and asked Shi Gaoyi if he wanted to do public relations.
Shi Gaoyi looked relaxed, "No need." Since putting the jade and copper coin together with the Mountain Tai stone, the company's situation had been very good in the past few days, and now Shi Gaoyi was completely convinced by Gong Qingyao’s ability.
Luer sales department originally thought that the sales of Gong Qingyao's endorsed headphone would decline, but they did not expect it to rise instead of falling. They all felt that their chairman was very powerful. He must have expected all this a long time ago, so they didn't worry about public relations.
However, Shi Gaoyi's idea was that the group of clowns on Weibo was dumb. If they couldn’t do it, didn’t mean that others can't. They would be slapped in the face sooner or later.
When there were a lot of online disputes, Gong Qingyao set off with a bag on her back. Since leaving last time, Gong Qingyao had always wanted to visit Hongyan Village again. It took Gong Qingyao a long time to refine the opened jade and made it into a bracelet, which she planned to give to Xiaomi.
After arriving in the nearest town, Gong Qingyao went to buy some oil, rice, fruits and other food. The store saw that Gong Qingyao bought a lot, so they took the initiative to find two big tartan bags to put the groceries in. They heard Gong Qingyao would take these to Hongyan Village, so they kindly helped Gong Qingyao to deliver these to the bus station.
When getting in the bus to go to Hongyan Village, Gong Qingyao pondered if she could be like Qin Ze. He travelled using a private jet, so it should be much more convenient. As soon as her thoughts finished, Qin Ze called.
"I bought Dream Garden Community." Qin Ze's voice was a little happy.
"Okay." Gong Qingyao didn't expect Qin Ze to be so fast, but the feng shui of that community was really good, it was just covered by those yin energies.
"I renamed it the Light of Hope (希望之光/ xīwàng zhī guāng), what do you think?" Qin Ze asked.
"Not bad." The meaning was good.
Hearing Gong Qingyao approval, Qin Ze's tone of happiness was even stronger, "By the way, when do you have time, come and help me see the feng shui here?"
"Okay later." Gong Qingyao's words were as concise as always.
Although Gong Qingyao did not explain, Qin Ze seemed to guess the reason immediately, "Are you not in the capital?"
Gong Qingyao said, "Well, I plan to stay in Hongyan Village for a few days."
"Okay, then I’ll wait for you. When you come back, in addition to the office building, I also plan to build a few villas." Qin Ze said.
"The villas can be built in the north." Gong Qingyao said.
Gong Qingyao hang up the phone and the bus also arrived outside Hongyan Village. Gong Qingyao walked into the village carrying two tartan bags. There were very few outsiders in the village. After the last reality show was broadcasted, there were indeed tourists at the beginning. But, although the scenery here was good and the people were enthusiastic, but the journey alone made people lose half their lives due to tiredness. The others checked the review of the people that had visited, and they didn’t dare to come anymore.
Therefore, the tourism in Hongyan Village ended before it even developed.
Gong Qingyao entered the village and the villagers found her immediately. Of course, they also remembered Gong Qingyao, "Miss Gong Qingyao come!"
Looking at the enthusiasm of the villagers, Gong Qingyao nodded, "Hello."
Villagers kept offering one after another, "Come to my house for dinner later!" In their hearts, Gong Qingyao was their lifesaver.
"If you are staying the night, you can rest at my house."
Gong Qingyao took out the fruit in the tartan bags and shared some with these villagers. The villagers were embarrassed to take it, and finally Gong Qingyao gave them to the children, they just took it.
Feifei was in Gong Qingyao backpack. When they entered Hongyan Village, Feifei felt that it was unusual. Hearing sounds around him, he immediately got out of the backpack.
When the villagers saw Gong Qingyao's cute pet they greeted it enthusiastically.
Feifei wagged his tail unexpectedly.
"Qingyao's pet is really cute."
"Yes, it follows the owner."
Gong Qingyao bid farewell to the villagers and went directly to Xiaomi's house at the end of the village. Xiaomi was helping her grandma fetch water. Seeing someone outside, she noticed that it was Gong Qingyao, and immediately shouted happily, "Sister Qingyao, you are here!" Then she ran toward Gong Qingyao.
"Yeah." Gong Qingyao followed Xiaomi into the house.
When Grandma Qian heard this, she also walked out of the room, "It turned out to be Qingyao!" Her tone was full of excitement.
Gong Qingyao put the tartan bags in the room.
Xiaomi opened it and said, "There are so many to eat."
Gong Qingyao still remembered the happy expression of Xiaomi eating corn paste last time, so she bought some rice.
When Grandma Qian saw it, her expression changed, "This, this is all polished rice." They rarely even got to eat polished rice once a year.
Gong Qingyao only said that Xiaomi was growing.
Grandma Qian suddenly refused.
Gong Qingyao looked at Xiaomi and said, "How is your learning of The Book of Changes?"
When Gong Qingyao asked her homework, Xiaomi immediately stood up straight and began to recite The Book of Changes.
When Grandma Qian saw Gong Qingyao questioned Xiaomi, so she immediately went to the kitchen to prepare lunch. Grandma Qian was an illiterate person. Xiaomi could finish reading these book entirely helped by the teachers in the village. The teachers in this village were actually only high school graduates, but they were more than enough to teach these children.
The Book of Changes was the most obscure and difficult to understand. It was really not easy for a child to memorize the first chapter. Gong Qingyao asked a few more questions, and found that Xiaomi could actually understand 70 to 80% of the book, and Gong Qingyao gave additional explanations to Xiaomi for the things that she hadn’t understood.
Xiaomi nodded again and again, then ran to the house and picked up a pencil, and wrote the guidance in a small book. This book was a bit shabby, Gong Qingyao thought, next time she came to Hongyan Village, she would bring some books, paper and pens.
After Xiaomi took note and she repeated what Gong Qingyao said, "Sister Qingyao, am I right?"
"Yeah." Gong Qingyao took the bracelet out of the bag, "This is a reward for you."
Xiaomi happily took it over, "Thank you sister Qingyao."
The author has something to say:
Ai Xiaoyun, Shi Gaoyi, etc: Black powder? You are so brave.
Black powder: Shut it, who is afraid of her? Isn't there still Cloudless Fortune-teller?
Cloudless Fortune-teller: What, what, what happened?
