GHML - Chapter 21.1: Hubby, We Won’t Have Anything To Eat Tomorrow (1)
“His ears are red. Fuck, even his face is red.”
“To be able to see him blush, he should have only applied a thin layer of foundation. His skin condition must be very good! I don’t know whether I should be jealous of Shang Jing or He Jiang.”
“I’m so jelly. If I have such a pretty wife, I’m willing to pay 88000 yuan!”
“Can anyone decipher what He Jiang said? Why do I feel that something’s not right there?”
“If you dare to tease your wife on a live broadcast, why not let us hear what you said?”
“Fam! After replaying that scene seventeen times and maxing out the volume, I’ve finally managed to decipher what he said! But I don’t have the courage to repeat what he said.”
“Hurry and spill the beans! Don’t force me to beg you.”
“Your idol asked Shang Jing whether the amount includes the son-bearing fees.”
“Putting myself in Shang Jing’s shoes… Ah, I’m dead.”
“Included! It includes a pigeon pair!”
“He really knows what he’s doing! My heart is racing!”
“Can I watch the process of them giving birth? Mainly for biology research.”
“I’ve reinstated my position as a supporter of this marriage!”
“My son, that’s a separate fee. Don’t be taken in by that old hooligan!”
Shang Jing scrambled to cover He’s Jiang microphone but quickly calmed down when he found out He Jiang already did. Since his own microphone was a distance away from He Jiang, what He Jiang said was most probably not recorded, especially since he had said it in a suppressed voice.
He gripped the edge of the table tightly.
Who would have thought the one being forced to control his anger was him.
Am I really going to accuse He Jiang of being an old-fashioned fucktard in front of the entire nation?
He Jiang will definitely not admit to it on his own so do I have to repeat his words myself…?
In the end, he could only pretend he did not hear what he said. As an excuse for his reddened face, he said, “It’s warm in here.”
He Jiang contained his laughter and turned away from him. He was afraid he might say something else that would ignite Shang Jing further.
Shang Jing glared at him and rolled his eyes.
Suddenly, an idea came to him.
He had focused all his energy on making things difficult for He Jiang and not considered directly bad-mouthing him. He was still too kind.
He Jiang was a scandal-ridden male chauvinist pig with zero cooking skills… Every single bad deed he had committed towards him that was recorded in the diary, he would make sure to expose them and make the public see what kind of terrible man he was.
But there were individual interviews in every variety show, there was no need to rush into it now.
Soon, an assistant from the production team came by to collect the 8900 yuan He Jiang had left on the table.
Shang Jing stared at He Jiang.
We’re really giving that to them?!
What can we do with 1100 yuan?! The production team has made it clear that they will not provide meals for us. There’s only a kitchen available for us to use but the pots and pans will have to come out of our own pocket.
Shang Jing: “Wait!”
The assistant: ?
Shang Jing whispered, “We are pledging 8888 yuan. There’s 8900 yuan there. Please return us 12 yuan.”
12 yuan was enough to get them two cup noodles.
There’s not many thrifty people like him left in the world.
That stunned the assistant. That was probably the first time he had seen someone pledge 8888 yuan at once and still be particular about a mere 12 yuan. But he did not voice out his opinion. “Please give me a moment,” he said.
Soon the result of the four teams was tallied.
The first couple pledged 1000 yuan instead of the 1 yuan they were going on about.
The second couple pledged 600 yuan.
The third couple, Cen Feinuo and Zhuang Qin couple, pledged 3000 yuan.
3000 yuan was a much more suitable number. When everyone thought they had won the game and were praising Cen Feinuo for his generosity, he shook his head and said, “Look at He Jiang’s pledged amount.”
Yang Yue: “He Jiang and Shang Jing family, 8888 yuan! Incredible! I’m thanking you on behalf of the entire production team for helping us save on production fees.”
The other teams: “...” Did we hear that right? What happened to psychological warfare? Why did they just dump all their money in?
Shang Jing waited for a moment then asked, “Is there no return gift?”
Yang Yue: “There isn't. But don’t worry, our daughters and son-in-laws, you are welcome to stay for dinner. Please gather at level 1 of the hotel at 7PM, we are treating everyone to a sumptuous feast! From now till then, you are allowed to go out to buy some daily necessities and decorate your nuptial rooms! For those families with financial troubles, there’s no need to worry. There’s a chance to earn some additional funds through labor.”
Since the second team came in last in the game, they were tasked to help the hotel prepare the dinner which naturally meant they were not allowed to go shopping like the other couples.
We are hosted novel, find us on google.
This was also an opportunity for the show to showcase the cleanliness of the luxurious hotel and how tasty their food was.
