TL Note: If there were any inconsistencies please do let us know so we could provide you a better version and experience while reading the novel. I’ll try my best to re-read them. Thank you for understanding.
“I want to have a pure campus love with Mr. Xu.”
Seeing Zheng Jiajia’s reply, Qiao Hui thought, ‘It seems like she thinks I’m bragging, but it’s not a bad thing if only I know that I’m not bragging.’
Without Qiao Hui noticing, time passed by rather quickly. She stayed in bed for a while, chatting with Zheng Jiajia.
When Xu Yiyang came in, he saw that Qiao Hui was still laying on the bed playing on her mobile phone. His lips curled up into a smile, “What, the little lazy cat still can’t get up?”
Oh, she’s actually not that lazy.
Qiao Hui got slightly annoyed, being called a lazy cat by Xu Yiyang, put down her phone, and said, “I’ll get up soon.”
Xu Yiyang leaned over and hugged her, much to Qiao Hui’s surprise.
Qiao Hui’s face suddenly turned red, “You…what are you doing?”
Xu Yiyang’s beautiful eyes were hidden by the lenses, yet his bottom eyelid was slightly puffy from sleep. He muttered, “Stop using honorifics, call me by my name.”
Qiao Hui probed, “Xu…Yiyang?”
“Remove the last name.”
Qiao Hui’s ears turned pink, buried her head in Xu Yiyang’s neck, and called out in a muffled voice, “…Yiyang.”
Hearing this, Xu Yiyang raised his eyebrows contentedly and carried his little wife into the bathroom.
While supporting her with one hand, he used his unoccupied hand to fill her washing cup with water and then squeezed some toothpaste onto the toothbrush. It appeared that he still wanted to continue helping her.
Qiao Hui hurriedly jumped out of his arms. She blushed furiously and used both of her hands to push him out of the bathroom saying, “You…you…you go.”
Xu Yiyang asked with a smile, “Can you do it by yourself?”
This was a question.
Upon hearing Xu Yiyang’s question, the feeling of a parent dotting on their child came back to Qiao Hui.
She was 21 years old, she knew how to take care of herself. Before she married him, she dressed, washed, ate, and slept without any issues.
It’s just brushing her teeth and washing her face, of course, she can do it!
The blush on Qiao Hui’s face subsided after patiently waiting for breakfast to be ready while sitting at the dining table. Today’s breakfast was very rich: preserved century egg and pork congee, omelet, milk, and a platter of fruit for afterward.
Oh, what a great day it is!
Just after she finished the loving breakfast that Xu Yiyang had prepared, she received a call from her agent Sister Huan.
Although she was an 18 tier actress, not only does Qiao Hui have an assistant, but also has an agent. It’s just that they were rarely used in normal times.
Even though Father Qiao rarely cared about her, he will give everything she deserves and will not be stingy. As he knew that if rumor got out that the legitimate daughter of Qiao Guoqiang, a wealthy businessman in the country, can’t make it to the table 1[TL Note- can’t make it to the table, means to provide something that will be a benefit, here it means, that QG can’t even give/provide some facilities to his biological daughter, even after being a wealthy businessman.], this would surely make him lose some face.
Why wouldn’t he care about this? He definitely would. After all, Qiao Guoqiang cares about his reputation; he is famous for being generous to his female partners. Naturally, a person like him can’t be stingy with his own daughter.
Although Qiao Guoqiang did not provide any fatherly love towards Qiao Hui, he still provided money and resources. She deserves nothing less 2[ED Note- deserves nothing less, It means that you fully deserve what just happened to you (or whatever outcome you were talking about). It can be used as a compliment or a criticism.]. As long as Qiao Hui requested it, Qiao Guoqiang will provide. But Qiao Hui was not very ambitious, so she rarely asked Qiao Guoqiang for anything.
In front of outsiders, both father and daughter appeared as if they got along; but only they knew the truth.
Qiao Hui grabbed a pillow from the living room and listened quietly to her agent, Sister Huan.
“Recently, there are two good variety shows. One is “Let’s go to school together”; that is, the celebrities return to high school and once again experience the life of a student. Another variety show is “Nong Jia Le” 3[TL Note- Nong Jia le, means agritourism] which, as the name suggests, runs a farmhouse. Both variety shows are in their second season, the ratings of the first season are not low, and both have rave reviews. You have to choose one of these two variety shows to participate in.”
While playing with the pillow in her arms, Qiao Hui asked, “Which other guests are there?”
Sister Huan naturally knew that Qiao Hui would ask this question, so she was prepared for it beforehand, “In the first season, the original cast will soon have minor changes. I heard that Film Emperor- Xu Yiyang will also participate, but I don’t know whether it is true or not. There are no rumors about which variety show he may participate in. “
Upon hearing Sister Huan’s words, Qiao Hui guessed it all at once. Xu Yiyang seldom participated in variety shows, usually taking various other jobs. This time, there’s news that he may participate in a variety show? Could it be that he wanted to appear on a variety show together? It’s not impossible. Depending on what Qiao Hui chose, it may influence Xu Yiyang’s choice. They may even be guests on the same show.
Thinking of this possibility, the corners of Qiao Hui’s lips raised slightly, “Sister Huan, I will think it over and will give you an answer later.”
“En4 [TL Note- En, means Okay] .”
After hanging up the phone, Qiao Hui ran over to where Xu Yiyang was with the pillow in her arms, “In a few days, I will be participating in a variety show”
Xu Yiyang was wearing an apron while he washed the dishes in the sink. He gave off a rather domestic aura. It’s not that there wasn’t a dishwasher at home, but Xu Yiyang preferred to wash the dishes by hand, claiming that it was cleaner this way.
Qiao Hui couldn’t help but take out her mobile phone and started secretly taking pictures of him. At this moment, she felt the warmth of ‘home‘, something she has not experienced in a long time.
Xu Yiyang waited until he finished washing the last bowl before asking, “Which variety show?”
Qiao Hui pretended to think and did not answer immediately. While in reality, from the two options that Sister Huan provided, she had already decided in her heart.
Of course, Qiao Hui chose the variety show “Let’s Go to School Together”. She had watched the first season of this variety show. The previous cast included retired artists, popular dancers, and the well-known director Tang Mo, the father of a well-known child star…
Although the regular guests were currently popular, once popular, or their children are popular, there was no denying that the youngest participant in this variety show was around 30 years old.
The original intention of this variety show was to let celebrities return to the campus era and once again feel the youth and innocence of high school.
Of course, one could not fake youthfulness; but when socializing with a group of teenagers, one will unconsciously relax. In this program, the celebrities that had debuted many years ago can ignore the pressures of the entertainment circle, society, and life in general and just relive the simple life of a student once more.
Not to mention, these celebrities were very relaxed on the show, and not afraid of showing their truest self.
In the beginning, no one thought that this variety show would be popular. Was there truly an audience willing to watch a group of older celebrities in their prime live like high schoolers?
Even the guests themselves were not confident at the start. They were willing to participate in this variety show, not for the fame or a chance to be in the spotlight, but purely to pursue their memories. Everyone has gone through high school at some point in their lives. No matter if it was good, bad, sweet, or bitter, this was an indispensable life experience.
Everyone thought that this variety show would not be received well, but they never expected such an enthusiastic positive response after the first episode was broadcasted. The audience was willing to watch the daily high school life of such celebrities. Watching a group of older celebrities who have been away from high school for over ten years doing physical exercises, mingling with teenagers, attending classes, getting up early in the morning to go for a run was quite refreshing for the viewers.
As the audience enjoyed watching the show, naturally the ratings went up.
Qiao Hui did not choose this variety show so she could relive her high school life. She graduated from high school less than three years ago and could still recall her hellish senior year.
She chose it because she wanted to experience campus life with Xu Yiyang.
