SA Chapter 69 (Part 1) – This Fan…… is A Little Cold

Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing, this name was still fresh in Rong Xu’s memory.

The last time he noticed this name was because the other party had posted a sleeping photo of himself and caused a sensation within the fan circle. Because of that photo, Rong Xu came to believe that fan should be a member of the Black Clouds crew. Additionally, after that, the other party also posted one hundred more movie tickets for Black Clouds, causing Rong Xu to be even more certain: the other party is not an ordinary crew member.

The cost of one hundred movie tickets was still within 10,000 yuan.

However, this time, Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing directly donated 1 million!

It was absolutely impossible for someone who could donate one million without blinking to only have one million dollars. Only someone with tens of millions or even hundreds of millions in assets could donate one million so boldly. One must consider that even many big entrepreneurs who donated money wanted to be well-known and have this spread their reputation.

This low-key donation of one million, it was absolutely impossible for this individual to be an unknown person within the circle.

In that instance, several names appeared in Rong Xu’s heart. Judging from Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing’s past posts, the other party was unlikely to be a foreigner. After all, this fan spoke Chinese too fluently, even using popular Internet slang and ‘Jiu Mi’ (“Kiss, Kiss”)! How could they be a foreigner?

Then, are they one of Huaxia’s first-tier actresses or first-tier female singers?

Wen Xuan, Xia Muyan, Yan Lianqiu, Guan Ningqin…

All of them had guest appearances in Black Clouds, and so were able to take photos. They also had sufficient funds to donate.

However, this was all still a bit unrealistic.

“No matter how you look at it, they don’t seem like the type who would say…… “Jiu Mi” (“Kiss, Kiss”), that kind of person…”

The youth furrowed his brows slightly and muttered to himself in a low voice.

Soon, Luo Qian called Rong Xu to determine their next public relations measures. This charity event spontaneously organized by the fans was a good thing and had also gained the support and praise of netizens. That a fan was willing to donate one million was the personal kindness of the other party. Although it could potentially cause some trouble, on the other hand, it will help more even people in need.

In order to prevent small minded people from framing Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing as someone prepared by Rong Xu himself, Luo Zhentao decided to contact the fan privately in the name of the fan support club to send the other party a pennant thanking her for her support of the event. Then, he will post an announcement about this situation, categorizing it as a fan’s personal decision so that no one could slander Rong Xu with this incident.

This plan was well thought out, and Rong Xu immediately agreed. He was even willing to sign eleven “Lost Wings” CD singles, giving one directly to Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing, while the other ten were given for free to randomly selected fans among those who donated.

Without delay, Luo Qian immediately set out to contact Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing. She also contacted Rong Xu’s leader fans, having them pay close attention to and control the fans’ comments to prevent sunspots from leading the rhythm.

During this time, this Fair and Beautiful Local Tyrant’s Weibo fans had already exceeded 30,000!

Clicking on the Fair and Beautiful Local Tyrant’s Weibo, this Dada’s posts had no special features nor outgoing meng brief messages. On their Weibo, they solely confessed to Rong Xu for three meals a day. Their latest Weibo post was the Weibo crowdfunding message automatically forwarded by the system.

If there had been no sleeping photo or the million dollar donation, such an ordinary fan would definitely not have attracted anyone’s attention.

But now, the number of fans on this Weibo was increasing at a rate of one hundred per minute. There were constantly notifications of comments on Weibo, as well as notifications of reposts and likes. The phone was buzzing and vibrating non-stop. 

Looking at the fans’ jokingly remarking “hugging a big thigh” and “spectating gods at work”, said fan silently placed his phone upside down on the table, completely turning a blind eye.

En, nothing happened, nothing…… happened at all.

…… How could nothing happen!

Ten minutes later, probably feeling a little annoyed with the constant vibrations from his phone, Qin Cheng picked up his phone and turned off all the notifications on Weibo. However, just as he was about to power off his phone and play dead, a message suddenly came into view.

[QianQian’s Big Adventure: Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing, Hello, I am Rong Xu’s assistant, Luo Qian. Thank you very much for your support of the “Lost Wings” donation event. We will be sending your donation to the rural mountain regions as soon as possible. Please rest assured. At the same time, we have a few small gifts for you as a show of gratitude. Can you send me an address? [Smiley face]][1]

A trace of surprise flashed through the man’s dark eyes, and he did not immediately answer.

On the other side, Luo Qian saw that her message had already been read, but she didn’t receive a reply. She thought for a little while before sending a message to Rong Xu: [Xiao Xu, that Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing may not believe that I am your assistant, how about you send them a message to verify my identity? 】

One minute later——

[Rong Xu: Hello[1], Qian Qian’s Big Adventure is my assistant ^_^ ]

Qin Cheng: “!!!”

Only after a while later did this fan give a reply ——

[Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing: Hello.]

Originally, this message was just to verify Luo Qian’s identity. Suddenly seeing this message, Rong Xu was a bit stunned before the corner of his lips curled upwards. He replied: [Thank you for your donation, I’m very happy you like me [Heart][Heart][Heart]]

When this line was just typed, Rong Xu squinted his eyes and stared at the two words[2] “hello”.

…… Based on what they saw on Weibo, this person should be his diehard fan, confessing to him everyday. But, why did it seem like when the real person spoke, they were somewhat cold?

This train of thought hadn’t let Rong Xu’s mind yet before he saw the person’s second reply.

[Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing: En, no need for thanks.]

Rong Xu: “……”

Logically speaking, this shouldn’t be the attitude a diehard fan has, right?! ! !

The chat was unlikely to be continued, so Rong Xu casually found an excuse to end the conversation and let Luo Qian take over. Examining the cold and stiff dialogue between himself and this “Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing”, a sense of familiarity flashed through Rong Xu’s mind. However, before he could get a grasp on that familiar feeling, it suddenly disappeared.

This kind of dialogue exchange, where did he see it before? Where was it…

In the next room over, Rong Xu absolutely wouldn’t have known that this Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing was currently looking at his cell phone screen in agony. In view of the fact that this fan had always suffered from facial paralysis and rarely showed his inner emotions except during filming, his distressed response was to squeeze the phone tightly and input a large amount of words in chat box over and over again, but when it was sent, it had become —— 

En, no need for thanks.

Watching Rong Xu deliberately end the conversation with wide open eyes, Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing lifted his hands to cover his cheeks as he pursed his lips, not wanting to speak.

However, there are some things that can’t be solved by playing dead. Luo Qian pressed harder and continued to ask Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing for ‘her’ address. Even if Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing said that they didn’t need to be so polite, Luo Qian still didn’t give up. In the end, Lotus Seed Paste and Orange Stuffing looked at Luo Qian’s words, and then looked at his own crazily exploding Weibo fans. After hesitating for a bit, this fan made a phone call.

“En? What are you calling me at this time? But, perfect timing. Qin Cheng, the outfit you will be wearing to participate in the Golden Phoenix Award in two days time has arrived. This time’s formal wear was ordered from Company A. Take a trip to the company tomorrow and let’s try on the look. This time, “The Disciple” was nominated for a lot of awards, and you were also nominated for Best Male Lead. Although you had just won the Golden Phoenix Actor Award last year, there are several strong opponents this year. Though the possibility of winning is not very high, we still have to anticipate and prepare for it.”

Only after speaking a whole bunch did Xu Jin suddenly recall: “Oh, right. What are you calling me for?”

A low, magnetic male voice steadily passed into Xu Jin’s ears through the receiver: “Give me an address and phone number. I need something mailed over. I need an address and number that will not expose any of my information.”

Hearing this, he was taken aback for a long time before Xu Jin said in bewilderment: “What are you sending, so mysterious?”

Qin Cheng said lightly: “Important documents.”

Xu Jin: “……Do you think I will believe that?”

“Fine, then give me your wife’s name and phone number.”
