Hitting Up The Big Leagues with a Green Tea Personality - Chapter 39
Zhou Xiran could not care less about the stains on her grey, pleated long skirt. She stood up hurriedly, an anxious look on her face.
She touched her nose in despair.
Without looking into the mirror, she could feel the large, round pimple protruding from her nose. It felt slightly painful under her touch.
“Ranran, are you okay?”
You Xinji could not help but voice out in concern.
Zhou Xiran, who usually cared excessively about her looks, could not bear to let anyone see her in such a disgraceful state. She would not be able to stand someone else questioning her directly before her in her current state.
Ever since she obtained the Beauty System, she had never had a pimple on her face. This pimple of hers just had to grow blatantly on the tip of her nose!
[The pimple on your face is a punishment for your Task Failure. It will take three days to go away.]
Looking closely at the words in her mind, Zhou Xiran covered her face with her hands. How she wished she could disappear into thin air right now!
It would take three days to go away!
How could she go out with a huge pimple on her face?!
Agitated, she reached out to cover the pimple with her hand. Her previous ethereal aloofness and temperament were nowhere to be seen.
“I think I am having skin inflammations as I have had too much ejiao (TN: A type of traditional Chinese medicine that works as a blood tonic.) these few days. Anyway, something came up and I have to leave first!” she blurted out. The previous leisurely tone of her voice turned shrill and impatient.
In her rush to get away, she almost forgot to take her handbag with her.
You Xinji could hardly keep up with her pace.
Zhou Xiran had only taken two steps forward when another notification appeared before her.
[New Task: Prevent Xia Bohe from obtaining any on-screen role during the summer holidays.]
[Reward: Sexy Lip Lines.]
[In the case of task failure, you will face the punishment of having an ugly transformation.]
Zhou Xiran’s legs almost gave out beneath her.
Ever since attaining this Beauty System, what she feared most were the punishments.
She felt horrible with the pimple on her face right now.
What would the next punishment be like? She did not want to get punished again!
[Becoming prettier when one is already pretty is an act that goes against the wills of nature.]
[Complete the task and the beauty’s destiny will be transferred to the host. In the case of failure, the effect will backfire.]
[Host, you can also give up on the task and return to your mundane appearance.]
Zhou Xiran took in a deep breath, then breathed out slowly.
Ever since obtaining this system at the age of sixteen, she had completed countless tasks and secretly took over the destiny of countless peers to attain the beautiful looks she possessed today.
She could not give up. The only outcome she could accept was becoming prettier and maintaining a gorgeous appearance forever!
No beauty could withstand themselves becoming ugly.
She would never allow that to happen.
“Xinji, let me know as soon as you receive any news about Xia Bohe going for a filming audition!”
Zhou Xiran clenched her hands.
She must complete her task this time round to claim Xia Bohe’s astounding destiny as her own.
This girl might be tough and persistent, but she was pretty. She only had herself to blame for being the next target of her Beauty System!
You Xinji agreed immediately. “No problem, leave it to me!”
“Hmm…where is the wind coming from?” Xia Bohe wondered.
Meanwhile, Xia Bohe shivered as she felt a cool sensation on the back of her neck. She opened the closet immediately.
She wanted to look for a jacket, but she was dumbfounded as soon as she opened the closet door.
What kind of closet was this…this was not one at all!
There was a direct elevator hidden behind the door in the center of the wall beside the bed!
This was just the second floor, right?
“I…” she stuttered.
She could not understand the world of wealthy people!
Other than the spiral staircase, there was even an elevator leading directly to their bedroom.
Xia Bohe felt extremely insecure. What if someone barged in when she was sleeping? Would they spy on her like she was bare and naked?
Not long after, an overcast shadow fell upon her.
A deep, raspy voice together with a faint winter cypress scent enveloped her from behind.
“It can only be unlocked via fingerprint verification.”
“We are the only ones who can access this elevator.”
Xia Bohe took in a gulp of air.
Had she just voiced out her thoughts?
Her earlobes felt numb.
Her ears turned red in embarrassment. She did not know if it was because she was poor or because this elder man looked extra hot when he said things that matched up to his rich status and made himself seem all the more entitled.
Standing behind her, Luo Tianlin felt that she was very petite as she only reached up till his shoulder. His dark eyes were soon trained on her fair collarbone.
His gaze remained there for a while before moving away.
“Don’t worry,” he said.
‘Nobody will look at your…bare body,” he added.
A wave of heat washed over Xia Bohe’s face.
She ended up blushing furiously this time round!
Just as she was about to cover her face with her hands, her phone started vibrating.
