The Best Male God [Quick Transmigration] - Chapter 20
This chapter was translated by Daed to be hosted on Foxaholic.com.
The shooting period for the reality show 《Swapped Lives》was set for a month. Under Zhou Zekai’s wing, Tang Bingyu spent the last days of the time like she was on vacation. Today was the day that they went home. People from the Zhou and Tang families would come and pick their respective ward up. Tang Bingyu was sort of dispirited. It was the same for the production team. After all, the filming was about to come to an end. It made the production team very happy to be able to film with a child like Zhou Zekai.
On the other hand, Zhou Zekai had already packed up his bags. He also helped Tang Bingyu with hers. Zhou Zekai’s face didn’t show any reaction towards the sudden downcast atmosphere because of the upcoming separation. But he glanced a couple times at Tang Bingyu’s dispirited appearance, then at the production team who were still present. It wasn’t a good time to say anything.
And so it was quiet in the room. Tang Bingyu didn’t speak and Zhou Zekai sat there, reading a book. Occasionally she would sneak a peek at Zhou Zekai. Their phones were still in the hands of the production team staff. Seeing the boy who sat there quietly kept reminding her of That Night, of how they spent their days together these past couple of days. It was as if every day was full of some new experience.
It was the kind of life that Tang Bingyu had never thought that she would live. It was like nothing was a problem as long as she was with Zhou Zekai.
Just as Tang Bingyu was lost in her thoughts and being sad as she recalled everything that had happened, she suddenly felt a piece of paper being shoved into her hands. She was taken aback, looking at Zhou Zekai. He winked at her. Tang Bingyu kneaded the paper and subtly angled her body away so as not to let the production team notice.
‘I’m willing to become your secret.’
One sentence was enough to blow Tang Bingyu’s mind silly. Following in succession, her ears turned red. After she got drunk that one time, she had thought that Zhou Zekai wouldn’t bring it up again. That drunk incident was like a taboo topic between them, it was not mentioned again between them. Tang Bingyu had even begun to believe that that time when she was ridiculously drunk, it might have been because she was drunk that she said those words to Zhou Zekai. Or maybe the night sky that day was too stunning, so she was influenced?
She couldn’t remember what it felt like when she kissed his lips last time. But the rapid pounding of her heart was reminding her, right this very minute, her feelings for Zhou Zekai.
“I-I like you……does that count as a secret?”
That night’s preposterous confession, the soft and supple sensation when she kissed Zhou Zekai, at this moment it all came rushing to the forefront of her mind. When she looked at the piece of paper again, she understood what Zhou Zekai was referring to.
He……did this count as his confession? Or……or was it his answer to her words, agreeing to be together with her?
Flustered, she pocketed the paper. The surrounding cameramen didn’t get close. After all, it was already time for the participants to part ways. They had to do everything they could to film this separation in the most artistic way possible. A dashingly handsome boy and a pretty girl, this kind of separation ought to let those who see it tear up.
Tang Bingyu turned her head slightly and saw Zhou Zekai’s faint smile. She immediately felt her face heating up and her heart swelling, warmth spreading through her entire body. She didn’t know what to do.
In the afternoon, the Tang couple came to pick Tang Bingyu up. When Tang Bingyu saw her parents, she leapt into their arms and sobbed. This allowed the production team to film many good materials. Tang Mother also cried her heart out, regretting for the first time letting her daughter join this kind of show.
When the Tang family were preparing to leave, the Tang couple thanked Zhou Zekai and they even exclusively gave him a gift. After all, they had watched the teaser video. Zhou Zekai had taken very good care of their daughter.
When it was time for them to truly part ways, the production team encouraged the two comrades to carry out the last embrace. Despite her bashfulness, Tang Bingyu walked over to Zhou Zekai. Moreover, she didn’t even dare meet Zhou Zekai’s eyes. Although they had already exchanged phone numbers, she still did not quite understand what Zhou Zekai meant.
Did they count as dating now? Did this count as an early romance?
Amidst these lingering questions, Tang Bingyu reached out and hugged Zhou Zekai. And he also pulled this pretty young girl into his embrace. His lips came beside her ear, his deep voice extremely gentle,
“Wait for my call when you get back.”
This sentence struck Tang Bingyu dumb and she stood still in her spot. Zhou Zekai released her and chuckled in front of her eyes. It was like he was emitting light, overwhelming Tang Bingyu.
In the end when she followed her parents onto their car, Tang Bingyu turned her head and spotted Zhou Zekai standing there. He leaned against a wall, looking quite cool. He noticed her looking back and waved at her. For some reason, her tears suddenly started trickling down.
She thought to herself, she really was reluctant to leave Zhou Zekai.
After filming this eventful farewell, the production team was extremely excited for the Zhou family’s arrival. After all, the Zhou family could be said to be well-known on the internet. Zhou Zekai may still be participating in the show, but the Zhou family had already set up a Weibo account for him. Moreover, they had posted the certification of the ginseng plant on Weibo. This caused Zhou Zekai to be synonymous to a lucky koi on the internet. No matter what anyone did, they would reblog that post for good luck.
Half an hour later, the Zhou family arrived. This time not only the Zhou couple came, but Zhou Senior came as well. Since his grandson had given him such a great surprise participating in a show, Grandfather Zhou naturally had to come personally. Most importantly, he reckoned that his grandson had clearly changed, as if he had found his future direction.
Zhou Zekai and Tang Bingyu’s first season of 《Swapped Lives》 finally came to an end. As soon as he got home, Zhou Zekai called Tang Bingyu.
Tang Bingyu hadn’t expected to really receive Zhou Zekai’s call, and her heart was full of joy.
“Ah Kai, are you home yet?”
She didn’t know how imbued with spirit her voice was. It was completely obvious who this little girl liked. The smile on her face was as bright as the sun in the sky.
“Yeah, I’m home. What about you? Are you doing okay?”
Tang Bingyu’s house was not in Shangjing City, they probably had to transfer flights. Zhou Zekai was worried that the other party would be tired.
“I’m fine. This time that I’ve come back, my parents treat me so well. They dote on me.”
Although she barely experienced any troubles in the show, just the matter of her sprained ankle was enough to make the Tang family fuss over her.
“That’s good. I just wanted to ask, do you still want to be a big celebrity?”
It had always been Tang Bingyu’s wish to become a celebrity. She didn’t know why Zhou Zekai would ask, but she still answered him honestly.
“That’s right, of course I want to become a big celebrity.”
When he heard the other party’s spirited and determined voice, Zhou Zekai chuckled gently with the phone in his hand. Since the other party had already made this decision, then he should also make his decision.
“Then how about I establish an entertainment company? And I’ll call it ‘Yu Ze Limited Entertainment Company’¹, the whole company will be at your disposal, what do you think?”
[¹TLN: 玉泽娱乐有限公司. Yes, the “Yu Ze” are the characters of both of their names – Tang Bingyu and Zhou Zekai.]
Perhaps the most beautiful type of love is to be whole-heartedly willing to become the platform under the person that one likes as she chased after her dreams, with the simple wish to let her reach the highest point.
Tang Bingyu didn’t know how she ought to answer. But as she smiled joyously, tears came streaming down her face.
