The Master of Metaphysics is The Movie Queen – Chapter 70

TMMTMQ – Chapter 70

They couldn’t jump into the lake to catch fish. Besides, the boat was a little high above the water. It was not feasible to just reach down. 

Everyone looked at each other, while Gong Qingyao was squatting under a cabinet in the kitchen. She found a ball of thread and a thin wire on the deck of the ship. Gong Qingyao directly cut some thread, bend a wire into a round hook shape, and finally tied the two together.

Yu Chuxue on the side couldn't help asking, "Are you going to use this for fishing?"

"Yeah." After Gong Qingyao tied the wire, she threw out the wire hook tied with the thin thread to the lake.

Zhong Xinyi asked innocently, "Can you catch a fish without bait?" She didn't believe that Gong Qingyao could catch any.

Guo Yuankai suddenly said, "Qingyao said yes, so she will definitely be able to."

Everyone: ...

The viewers also laughed.

[Didn’t Guo Yuankai always oppose Gong Qing Yao at the beginning?]

[Hahahaha, this show really makes everyone change a lot.]

[But to be honest, can she really catch fish without bait?]

[Just see.]

[I agree, I think Guo Yuankai is right. If Gong Qingyao said yes, it will definitely work.]


Gong Qingyao threw the hook out, and everyone came out to watch. After a short time, Gong Qingyao pull up a fish.

You Xingyu sighed, "The charm of Qingyao is so great that empty hook can catch fish."

Lu Yongyi on the side explained with a smile, "Lake Yuhai's ecology has always been very good, so there are many aquatic animals in it. We can see that there are a lot of fish, so if we put down a hook, we can catch fish even without bait."

"That's it." Zhong Xinyi showed a trace of worship in her eyes, "Yongyi, you are really good." Careful people would find that Zhong Xinyi treated Lu Yongyi differently. After all, Lu Yongyi was now the third most popular person in this reality show.

"I just happened to be interested in Lake Yuhai." In this reality show, from the first issue to the present, the only thing that hadn't changed beside Gong Qingyao was Lu Yongyi, who had always been a humble and low-key person.

When everyone saw that they could catch a fish this way, they learned from Gong Qingyao and also took the ball of thread, tied the hook and started fishing. But soon someone discovered that Gong Qingyao could quickly catch a fish as soon as she threw the hook down, while they threw it down and felt that the thread was moving, but there was nothing when they pulled it out.

Zhong Xinyi shouted excitedly, "Ah! I caught one!" Everyone turned around and saw Zhong Xinyi pulled her thread, but there was nothing on it, not even the hook. Zhong Xinyi looked dazed, "What about the hook?"

Guo Yuankai couldn't help but replied, "I was eaten by the fish." 

The viewers laughed loudly.

[How hungry are the fish in Yuhai? Even the hook is eaten.]

[Is it right? How come?]

You Xingyu looked at Lu Yongyi, "Fishes here eat iron?"

Lu Yongyi shook his head, "It’s not that they eat iron, but the fish cut the thread.]

Zhong Xinyi looked at the end of the thread, sure enough. It was the mark of it being bitten off, "So I still caught a fish, but it ran away."

Yu Chuxue, who had not spoken, suddenly shouted, "Come on and help me, I caught a big fish."

Yu Chuxue was pulling her thread vigorously, but she didn't dare to pull it too hard for fear of snapping the thread. You Xingyu came to help, but neither of them was able to pull the fish up. Seeing this, Gong Qingyao took the thread in Yu Chuxue's hand. Everyone saw Gong Qingyao gently tug, and a big fish flew out of the water directly.

Gong Qingyao stepped forward to catch the fish, and then handed it to Yu Chuxue.

Yu Chuxue picked up the big fish with a sincere smile on her face, "Ah, this is the first time in my life that I caught such a big fish." This fish was nearly one meter long, enough for six people to eat.

The big fish flapped and Yu Chuxue threw the fish out in fright. Fortunately, the fish was still on the boat. Seeing this, You Xingyu hurried to catch the fish. There was water puddles on the boat, and the big fish fought very hard on it. For a while, You Xingyu and Yu Chuxue didn't manage to catch it. When the other saw this, Lu Yongyi joined the fish catching army.

After the crowd rushed several times, the big fish jumped to Gong Qingyao's feet. Gong Qingyao picked up the big fish silently and threw it into the bucket behind everyone.

Everyone: ...

The fish was caught. Everyone was going to stop and start making breakfast.

Lu Yongyi began to distill some seawater on the side while You Xingyu and Guo Yuankai killed the fishes. Yu Chuxue took the initiative to clean the pots and other kitchen utensils. Zhong Xinyi stood beside Lu Yongyi and asked Lu Yongyi what each step of his distillation meant. As for Gong Qingyao, when everyone was working separately, she started to cook.

Gong Qingyao chose six fishes of the same size and put them into a pot to make fish soup. There was not much coal available for cooking. Lu Yongyi divided a part of the coal away, and the rest was only enough to cook up to two meals. In other words, everyone would probably not have fuel for a few meals.

"Do you want us to eat raw fish?" Zhong Xinyi asked, "This is too unreliable." 

After the captain drove the boat off the shore, he stopped moving forward, so everyone float on the sea. Where they floated all depended on God's decision.

"The rest of the coal needs to be reserved for making drinking water." Yu Chuxue said, as celebrities, it was normal for them to be hungry for a day or two, but they always need water to drink.

"Agree." Zhong Xinyi said immediately.

Judging from the current situation, it seemed that there was no better way than this. After preparing the morning meal, Lu Yongyi used the rest of the coal to make distilled water. After filling their stomachs, everyone ran out of the boat, trying to see if there were any visible fishing boats around. If so they wanted to ask for some firewood.

However, when they stepped out of the boat, everyone found that there was an endless water in front of them, not to mention fishing boats, even a shadow could not be seen.

"It seems that we will really be hungry after this." Zhong Xinyi sighed.

This time was different from the past. The ingredients were easy to find, but there was no source of fire. They also couldn’t cut the boat into wood and burn it. Besides, even if some of the guests know how to swim, this endless place was the largest lake. No matter how good they swam, they wouldn’t be able to swim to the shore.

When everyone was in a hurry, only Gong Qingyao calmly looked at the scenery on the lake. Now she had broken through the eighth level of Qi training, let alone fasting for a day, even a week was no problem.

Lake Yuhai was very beautiful, especially when the sun was shining brightly, the whole piece of Yuhai was blue. Standing in the center of Yuhai would give people a feeling of openness.

Gong Qingyao silently absorbed the spiritual energy from the lake and was very comfortable. Zhong Xinyi anxiously looked back at Gong Qingyao and said, "Qingyao, are you not in a hurry?"

"No, why?" Gong Qingyao asked back. When she went to the lake, Lu Qianqian floated out early to check the surrounding.

Zhong Xinyi snorted coldly in her heart. Gong Qingyao pretended to be indifferent, who knew what she was thinking, "If we don't have firewood, we can't cook." 

Lu Yongyi said on the side, "We are also floating on the lake, maybe we will encountered a small island or something."

"It would be great if this is the case." Yu Chuxue said, resting on the island for a while, it was better than on a boat. The boat was fine when it was moving. When it stopped and floated, she felt a little seasick.

On the deck, Guo Yuankai was a little unwell. After saying that he didn't sleep well yesterday, he went directly to the room to sleep. Zhong Xinyi and You Xingyu stood and chatted at the railing, while Yu Chuxue stood alone in the corner of the boat, seeming to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Lu Yongyi walked to Gong Qingyao's side and called softly, "Qingyao."

Gong Qingyao turned around and nodded slightly.

"Are you busy lately?" Lu Yongyi asked. When not recording the reality show, he could only get information about Gong Qingyao from the Internet. A few days ago, he saw Actor Bo winning her fortune-telling lottery. He knew Gong Qingyao's schedule. In addition to fortune-telling, Gong Qingyao was also filming ‘Legend of Yunxian.’ Lu Yongyi won a small supporting role by his own efforts, but compared to Gong Qingyao, it seemed to be so bad.

"Fortunately." Gong Qingyao said, her tone was neither salty nor light, the same as usual.

"Where are you during the New Year?" Lu Yongyi called Gong Qingyao and found that the other party could not be connected.

"Hongyan Village." Gong Qingyao answered truthfully.

Lu Yongyi was stunned. Obviously he didn't expect Gong Qingyao to go to Hongyan Village. Then he thought that Gong Qingyao seemed to really like that place. "Are you spending the New Year with Xiaomi and the others?" 


Watching the live broadcast, the viewers also seem to think of Hongyan Village.

[I have been there before, but the journey is too difficult. Although Hongyan Village is beautiful, I won't go there again until the road is repaired.]

[That Xiaomi is very pitiful. Her parents are no longer alive, and she only has her grandma left.]

[Suddenly I feel that Gong Qingyao is not a cold-hearted person, and I am inexplicably moved.]

[Yes, Gong Qingyao will go to Hongyan Village to spend the New Year with them.] 

[I just checked. Gong Qingyao is an orphan.]


When the viewers were discussing, Lu Qianqian came back and told Gong Qingyao about the location. Where the camera could not take pictures, Lu Yongyi saw Gong Qingyao made a gesture under her sleeves. After that gesture, there was a gust of wind around and the ship suddenly changed its direction.

After about half an hour, everyone saw a small island not far away. You Xingyu first shouted, "Look, everyone, there is an island over there."

When everyone was happy, Lu Yongyi turned around and found that Gong Qingyao was still showing an indifferent expression, but Lu Yongyi knew in his heart that all this was probably done by Gong Qingyao.

Because they were close to an island, everyone asked the captain to dock the boat next to the small island, and then everyone went to the island one by one. There were a lot of dead branches on the island. Needless to say, everyone consciously gathered these dead branches to the boat. After that Lu Yongyi made a lot of distilled water.

At noon, everyone decided to eat on the island, so after filling up the firewood in the boat, some of them started cooking. Lu Yongyi made distilled water and came out to catch food with You Xingyu on the shore. In addition to some crabs, the two also found a lot of conch.

"These are enough to eat at noon," You Xingyu said.

"Let’s also prepare for tonight and tomorrow." Lu Yongyi found a basket on the boat, "I'll go there and take a look." It would be better if some shellfish could be catched.

Seeing that Lu Yongyi was going to the deep area, You Xingyu said, "Then you be careful." You Xingyu was not good at water, so he didn't rush to go with Lu Yongyi.

Gong Qingyao picked some plants from the island. The production team would not provide seasonings and other things. They could eat seafood when steamed, but with some seasonings, the taste would be more delicious. Just when Gong Qingyao picked some vegetables, she heard a scream not far away.


The author has something to say:

Mao Liqiang: Please let me live T-T

Stupid author: Don't worry. Your life is determined by Gong Qingyao, it's okay.


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