How To Pursue Your Idol - Chapter 1
Xiao Zheng had just graduated this year and joined a real estate company as an assistant to the department manager. The starting salary for this position was 4000 yuan, but hundreds of people were competing for it. For the monthly salary of 4,000 yuan, Xiao Zheng worked his ass off to get ahead of the competitors and became a member of this well-known domestic real estate company.
After entering the company, he didn’t rise to become a winner in life. Instead, he nearly vomited blood due to working overtime and attending meetings every day. After a newcomer’s ignorant adaptation period, Xiao Zheng became one of the most popular colleagues in the department.
There was no reason other than Xiao Zheng’s smile. Others liked looking at his baby face, his originally bad temperament had changed drastically. In addition, he had become generous. He was never crooked and would do his tasks in an orderly manner. Even the middle-aged superviser, who was picky and also very strict, would treat him a bit more kindly than others.
Xiao Zheng’s salary, including bonus, was only a little over 5,000 yuan a month. It was reasonable to say that a newbie like him couldn’t afford to live extravagantly or buy a fifty-sixty-thousand car. Others thought that his family’s situation was either good or at least well-off.
But in fact, they didn’t know that Xiao Zheng actually had a part-time job, which was writing novels.
He started writing essays during his freshman year, and followed the escalating stream of cool texts. Because he was familiar with the popular trends, he was already well-known in the online literary world. Before he had even graduated, he had already sold the copyright of games and animations to one of his works, and his financial situation was relatively comfortable.
As soon as the department went into overtime, Xiao Zheng started writing essays even in the office. If the department’s people could leave at early hours then, he would write at home. There was no difference except for the change in locations.
Recently, he was serializing an upgraded fantasy novel. It was a story about an unknown boy who accidentally got hit and then entered a dilapidated little sect, and how he stepped above everyone else, lit up the martial art world and finally became the supreme world leader, shattering the void, and achieved a higher realm. It had already been serialized to about one million words, which was just the starting. However, one million words were just the beginning for the upgraded novels. Xiao Zheng had 6,000 every day, and occasionally 10,000; even so, many people still looked forward to it daily.
Once on a whim, Xiao Zheng wanted to test the fan loyalty for this book, so he jokingly said that he would add 10,000 more words if there were more comments left for the new chapter. As a result, a local tyrant paid 10,000 yuan without a word. The reader gave him a reward, to let him add more words, and said that if he added more in the future, he would gift him more money.
Xiao Zheng was under great pressure, and from then on he dared not raise a flag on himself.
Novels were not easy to write; and nowadays, literary essays were plentiful. The reason why Xiao Zheng stood out was entirely because of his interesting supporting characters, a contrast from the typical low-energy cannon fodder, with different personalities and coarseness. With the supporting character’s IQ and EQ, the protagonist had a sense of accomplishment when he delivered the face slapping. Thus, the content became more enjoyable to read.
In the past few days, he had just written that the protagonist Qi Zhen was participating in the Appraisal Realm, which was the major competition event in the Zhongtian Realm where he was residing. The world described by Xiao Zheng was set up in the Nine Heavens. Middle Heaven was the mortal realm, and First heaven was the immortal realm. Therefore, the top ten masters in the Appraisal Realm Conference could get permission from Second Heaven and Xian Heaven (First Heaven) to enter the first realm, where Qi Zhen continued to practice.
As long as there was a protagonist in a novel, there would inevitably be a lot of obstacles, who would hinder the protagonist’s way, Qi Zhen was no exception. He had many enemies, but the biggest enemy that Xiao Zheng arranged for him at the Jianjing Conference was a man called Huang Huazang. The child of the Huangfu family.
As one of the “blocking tigers”, Huangfu Huazang was a bit anti-routine. He was not one of those children from a rich family who had experienced a good childhood nor was he talented. Moreover, he was an abandoned son. Huangfu Huazang had experienced hardships to finally obtain his current achievements. A vital artifact was snatched by the protagonist, so he despised the protagonist through the bones, and did everything possible to make the protagonist, Qi Zhen, fall. Even the woman Qi Zhen liked held affections for Huang Huazang, as she didn’t know Huang’s true colours .
Huangfu Huazang was very clever. Qi Zhen was tricked by him many times. He occupied a very important space in the first level of Qi Zhen’s cultivation. Xiao Zheng finally set him to be killed by his own people and not to die in the hands of the male protagonist.
However, in the current series, Huangfu Huazang was still alive and well, and was about to become one of the top ten masters of the Interpretation Conference, which almost made it impossible for Qi Zhen to enter the next world.
Currently, this character was one of the most popular characters. The readers who favored and hated him accounted for half of them. The former was mainly female readers, while the latter was mostly male readers.
In summary, the reason why Huangfu Huazang was introduced in such detail was not because of the female reader’s interests in him, nor was it because Xiao Zheng liked him very much, but because Xiao Zheng suddenly found that he woke up and became Huangfu Huazang one day.
The character’s meridians had been damaged since he was a child, because he was born as a weak child, and his body was not in very good condition. Previously, in order to please the female readers, Xiao Zheng also added night blindness to Huangfu Huazang as a disease. However, when he learned that he had traveled to be the short-lived villain in the book, he wished he could slap himself severely.
According to the following plot ‒ Huangfu Huazang was prepared to borrow a ‘knife’ to kill the male lead at the Appreciation Conference. He plotted and encouraged a person who had an old rivalry with the protagonist, and then came forward to act as the oriole behind the praying mantis. However, during a dark and windy night, when the two were fighting for 300 rounds, the protagonist discovered that Huangfu Huazang was seriously injured.
When Xiao Zheng passed through Huangfu Huazang, the character had already thought of killing him with a ‘knife’; the plot was on track and couldn’t be stopped. However Xiao Zheng didn’t want to be severely injured by Qi Zhen, and so he decided to withdraw from the Appraisal Conference halfway through and slipped away quietly. Xiao Zheng knew that people were not as good as heaven, and was about to leave, when he met Qi Zhen. The other party said he had something to ask him and led him outside the bamboo forest.
”It’s about Zhao Chengqi.” Qi Zhen said.
Xiao Zheng understood that Zhao Chengqi was the female lead Qi Zhen liked, and that the other party currently liked Huangfu Huazang.
At present, the relationship between Qi Zhen and Huangfu Huazang consisted of a bit of rivalry. Qi Zhen was even a little jealous of Huangfu Huazang because the other party had the love of his goddess.
But the next development was slightly like cheating.
They had just left the bamboo forest, it really was a plot against Qi Zhen, Qi Zhen suddenly shot towards the other side of Xiao Zheng and said “Huangfu, watch out!”
Qi Zhen, “……”
Xiao Zheng, “……”
The main plot stated that Qi Zhen was attacked with the “knife” that Huangfu Huazang arranged, but Xiao Zheng didn’t expect the other party to appear at this time.
Is it good or not good?
Xiao Zheng considered it for three seconds before making a decision.
Now that he ran away, Qi Zhen would definitely not let him go.
It was better to fight in groups.
But he did not expect Qi Zhen’s cultivation base to advance by leaps and bounds during this period of time. Not only did he knock another cannon fodder to the ground, but he also became evenly matched with Huangfu Huazang. Xiao Zheng was careless and his chest got injured. He fell to the grass, and spit out a mouthful of blood; his eyes turned dark, and his vision became blurry.
When he opened his eyes again, Xiao Zheng found himself lying on the desk, with the middle-aged bald boss standing beside him.
”The lunch break is over. Hurry up and get back to work. The boss will come for an inspection this afternoon.”
Xiao Zheng sat straight up, wiping off his saliva. Actually, his work was done yesterday. There was nothing to do today so he was surfing the Internet during the day.
With no one around, Xiao Zheng opened the document he was still serializing. The latest chapter above happened at the moment when Huangfu Huazang was beaten by Qi Zhen.
Xiao Zheng couldn’t figure out whether he was dreaming, or if he really went in the book; but, in order to avoid lying on the bed with broken bones the next time he woke up, he decided to give Huangfu Huazang some gold fingers.
Well, just nine days ago, a thunderstorm flew in front of Qi Zhen, letting Huangfu Huazang take the opportunity to escape.
Due to thunder, Huangfu Huazang’s night blindness was healed suddenly without medical intervention.
While escaping, Huangfu Huazang ran into Zhao Chengqi, and was taken care of by this beautiful woman, and Qi Zhen became even more furious.
