Chapter 27.2

After Bai Jing stepped down from the stage, he was respectfully invited to the private room on the second floor by Qiao An.

Gu Yuanzhao was still sitting on the sofa with his long legs folded as usual, but Bai Jing sensed keenly that he wasn’t very happy.

Why?

Gu Yuanzhao was indeed in a bad mood, and there was a sour, astringent feeling in his chest that he had never felt before.

The teenager had done well, even to the point of stunning him. When Bai Jing had been unraveling the rough stone on the high platform, he hadn’t been able to take his eyes off of him for even a second.

Bai Jing was like a luminary, shining so brightly that those who saw him were unconsciously drawn to him, and thus fell in love with him.

Thinking of this, Gu Yuanzhao could hardly restrain a pang of irritation. Even facing alien beasts of the highest level wouldn’t have upset him so much.

Bai Jing mused: “Are you angry? Uhm, angry with me?”

His sense perception ability could sense that the activity in Gu Yuanzhao’s body was high and low at times, showing that he was in a very unstable stage.

Gu Yuanzhao: “….. No. You did exceptionally well, I am very hap– satisfied.”

Bai Jing transferred the six million starcoins he had just won to him. En, now he owed Gu Yuanzhao 27 million starcoins.

When Gu Yuanzhao heard his light brain make a ‘drip’ sound and then saw the message that Bai Jing had transferred the starcoins, he sulked even harder in his heart.

Why had he acted so fast?

Was he so eager to get rid of him?

Bai Jing blinked, feeling as if Gu Yuanzhao was even angrier, as the active reaction in his body changed in an extremely violent manner, like a volcanic eruption.

Thinking it would be better to change the subject, Bai Jing asked, “Young Master Gu, what did you want to see me about?”

Gu Yuanzhao: “Why do you call me Young Master Gu? Do we need to be so unfamiliar with each other?”

Bai Jing: ?

Why did he feel that he was strange today?

“Then I’ll call you, Gu Yuanzhao?”

Gu Yuanzhao said with a straight face, “It’s fine when it’s just the two of us, but when you’re out there, as a member of the Gu family from the side branch and as you’re younger than me, you should call me– big brother.”

Bai Jing: “….”

Gu Yuanzhao’s deep eyes looked fixedly at Bai Jing: “Otherwise, what if it exposes you? Don’t you want to hide your identity?”

Bai Jing: “….. Big brother.”

He really couldn’t say this big brother out smoothly.

The teenager’s voice was crisp and the bite clear, the words ‘big brother’ said with a slightly elongated tone managing to put Young Master Gu in a good mood.

Gu Yuanzhao: “En. I called you here because I want to discuss with you the follow-up arrangements for Gu Yun.

Through this betting war, your fan base will definitely surge, so I’ve already registered a Star Realm account for you under the name ‘Gu Yun’. Do you want to manage it yourself?”

Bai Jing didn’t hesitate: “Can I get someone to manage it for me? I want to focus on gambling on rough stones.”

Gu Yuanzhao’s lips rose up in a smile, “Sure. Qiao An, get the Minister of Information over here right away, I need to talk to him.”

As the Minister of Information Liang Heng followed Qiao An into the private room on the second floor, he felt Young Master Gu’s powerful aura, making it so that he didn’t even dare raise his head.

This was the second time in the last two months that Young Master Gu had asked for him, and this time in person.

It had to be known, that even the heads of the various planets only saw Young Master Gu once a month during video conferences.

Had he made a major mistake in his work? Liang Heng wiped the cold sweat from his forehead unconsciously.

Gu Yuanzhao glanced at him, “Don’t be nervous, I asked you to come here because I need you to do something.”

Liang Heng: “Young Master Gu, please go ahead.”

Gu Yuanzhao: “From now on, you will manage this Star Realm account. Remember, no one can track his location or real information. The rest, is up to your discretion.”

Liang Heng: “Yes!”

In his heart he was terrified. This account had to be a very important account that might involve certain important secrets, otherwise Young Master Gu wouldn’t take it so seriously, let alone call him over alone.

Soon after, Liang Heng received the account information from Young Master Gu himself.

After he logged into the account: ???? What is this?

[Yun Yun is so handsome, mum loves you].

[Beautiful and handsome, love you, love you.]

[When’s the next betting war? I’ll bet on you!]

Liang Heng: …… No matter what, he would carry out the things Young Master Gu had entrusted him to do!

He quickly compiled the basic information about ‘Gu Yun’ and put it on Starnet where one could find it but with a lot of effort, waiting for them to discover it.

In the meantime, all the information about Bai Jing had been cumbersomely encrypted and put into a billion starcoins database, making it a needle in a haystack.

After all this, Liang Heng’s heart was filled with an eerie sense of satisfaction, even more so than when he was running the daily vast and tedious data of the Gu Conglomerate’s Gambling House.

Seeing the enthusiastic comments from the fans, Liang Heng’s fingers flew and he replied quickly with both hands on the light screen: [Thank you all for your support, I will continue to work hard!]

As well as add a cute emoji pack together with a couple of high resolution pictures of ‘Gu Yun’ at his best angle.

[Wow, who took this picture, it’s simply stunning!]

[An out of this world gorgeous face, ahhhhh– I’m dead T.T]

Looking at the replies below, Liang Heng raised his head lightly. Who took this?

Hmph, you guys should never underestimate the charm of quantum data.

A few hours later, netizens really picked Gu Yun’s identity up.

Gu Yun, a member of the Gu family’s side branch from Jinx Tower Star Planet, twenty years old, 180cm tall, 65kg in weight, who had previously been on the remote Jinx Tower Star Planet and only came to Proxima Star after a particle storm on his Planet….

[He’s unexpectedly a member of the Gu family from the side branch. Thinking of Young Master Gu, hmm, no wonder his beauty is so high.]

[Upstairs, don’t try to bring Young Master Gu into this. There are many members from the side branches of the Gu family. In fact, there are tens of thousands of them.]

[Yes, this Gu Yun has nothing to do with Young Master Gu. Young Master Gu probably doesn’t even know him!]

Gu Yuanzhao was the dream lover of all young men and women in the Empire. Not to mention being the heir to the Gu Conglomerate and the youngest Major General in the Empire, the images of him piloting mechas and killing alien beasts, were watched regularly even up till now.

The man in the cockpit was handsome, cold and powerful, with an unstoppable aura, like a god of war descending from the sky, making the hearts of those who watched the videos race wildly.

Anyone in the Empire, male or female, who attempted to climb the thigh that was Young Master Gu would be ripped to shreds by the countless insane fans, as had been the norm in recent years.

Hence the crowd wisely avoided the topic and began to move on to other things.

After today’s betting wars, Gu Yun’s fan base shot up. In just half a day, his fan base on Star Realm had gone from a handful to a million, and it was still growing at a rate that was like riding a rocket!

It had to be known, that a lot of the smaller level 2 Stone Gamblers only had 4 or 5 million fans, and that was after a few years in business, like Jiang Ke.

Jiang Ke couldn’t wait to expose himself to the camera every time he appeared and didn’t miss a chance to showcase himself, selling his persona out like crazy.

But even so, he hadn’t amassed more than five million fans in two years.

What was even more tragic was that today, his fans had dropped by nearly 100,000 in just one day!

Jiang Ke was close to getting his nose out of joint, yet that wasn’t the worst of it.

With a ‘di’ sound, the light brain on his left wrist flashed, showing that a message had come in.

Clicking on it in a huff, he saw that it was a system message from the Gambling Guild.

[After this betting war, your rate of betting increase has reduced from 10.35% to 10.0%. If you don’t improve it within a month, your rank will be reduced from level 2 Stone Gambler to level 1 Stone Gambler, please be aware.]

“F*ck!”

Jiang Ke was really going crazy this time.

He knew full well that the reason he was able to participate in betting wars and use all sorts of ways to increase his exposure, was all because he had the okay status of being a level 2 Stone Gambler.

If he were to drop to being a level 1 Stone Gambler, afraid his exposure would plummet and his fans would leave him.

Jiang Ke was really anxious this time. He absolutely couldn’t lose his status as a level 2 Stone Gambler, otherwise he would be ridiculed for having the guts to even participate in a betting war!

He didn’t have a strong heart like Gu Yun.

But before he could think of a countermeasure, Jiang Ke was shocked to find that his fans had dropped by half a million at an alarming rate, and the figure was still going down at a rate visible to the naked eye.

“Fck, what the hll is going on?”

Scrolling upwards with trembling fingers, Jiang Ke finally discovered the truth.

It was a video.

His face was grim in the video, a far cry from his usual innocent and cute appearance, the jealousy and malice in his eyes so strong that it almost spilled out.

After Gu Yun had said he wanted the piece of bean seed jadeite, the video showed him giving a strange smile, and then letting go of the bean jadeite with a jerk of his hand–

The video was shot at just the right angle, which recorded the slightest expression on his face without missing a single moment.

Jiang Ke slumped to the ground. It was over, it was all over. The persona he had created for two years, had collapsed….

In contrast, Gu Yun’s fan base had climbed upwards at an even more alarming rate than before.

From the video, people saw the impact of the teenager with delicate eyebrows when he saw the jadeite fall. Him exploding in a flash, the flowing cloud-like stance, his keen reaction speed and fast to the extreme, sent them into a frenzy in awe straight away.

That day,

#Jiang Ke’s personality has collapsed

#Gu Yun A exploded

Both tags stormed the hotspots at the same time.

And finally, a nosebleed-inducing buzzword like #Gu Yun waist softness was added.

The eyes of the Minister of Information, Liang Heng lit up as he watched the Star Realm account’s soaring fan count.

He thought proudly in his mind, this was all his doing. He wondered if Young Master Gu would be satisfied?

    Thanks for the chapter.

  2. #Gu Yan Waist Softness

    Poor Bai Jing will be baffled and GYZ will be even more enlightened and turn into a pot of vinegar.
