“Xiao Bei, I’m here to apologize to you.” With apologies in his eyes, Zhuang Xinran said seriously, “Xiao Bei, I’m sorry, I didn’t anticipate what happened yesterday, I really didn’t mean it. I just wanted to stay, after I was poisoned, my voice was cured, but my practice time was several days less than yours. The program said they wanted to compensate me, so I made a request that I wanted to be able to stay in the next round, I didn’t think about it that much, I just wanted to stay smoothly, I didn’t think that my staying would hurt others …… Anyway, I’m sorry, can you forgive me?”
Zhuang Xinran’s words were heartfelt, true and sincere, he lowered his head, makiing his tears hit the table.
He Xiaobei squeezed a pair of chopsticks tightly, not knowing how to respond.
At this time Zhuang Xinran suddenly held He Xiaobei’s hand, eyes red, “Xiaobei, can you forgive me? I really didn’t mean it.”
“I, I ……” He Xiaobei didn’t know how to respond, he didn’t have the generosity to really pretend that nothing had happened, but seeing Zhuang Xinran’s guilt-ridden face, he couldn’t say the words to refuse.
Biting his lips, he didn’t know how to respond.
Before he could respond, a voice behind him rang out, “What kind of drama is this rehearsal? How to eat a meal and cry as well.”
Shi Fei had both hands in his pocket, and with a slow and slightly lazy body posture, he sat on the side of He Xiaobei, said: “Is today’s food spicy? Or are your tear ducts overdeveloped and you can’t hold it in, Miss Zhuang?”
Saying that he even reached in He Xiaobei’s plate and took a piece of meat to eat.
When Zhuang Xinran saw Shi Fei appear, the guilt on his face froze, he purposely picked the time when Shi Fei was not here to look for He Xiaobei, because he knew that He Xiaobei was weak in nature, he only needed to say a little bit and show weakness, he would definitely forgive him.
As long as he forgave him, the other players wou;d no longer show hostility towards him, after all, even the affected party had forgiven, how would other people have the resources to be angry for him?
He didn’t expect to Shi Fei to appear halfway, why did this person have to be against him in every way?
Zhuang Xinran sniffed, annoyed in his heart, but his face didn’t show it, and said, “I just wanted to come and ask for Xiao Bei’s forgiveness.”
“Forgiveness isn’t something you can just say verbally, right, or else you can send a post on Weibo to tell us the reason for the matter so that you can show your sincerity ah.” Shi Fei said as he gnawed on the meat and raised his eyebrows.
Zhuang Xinran bit his lip, “The program team will not allow this.”
Shi Fei threw the finished meat bones on the table, took out a paper towel to wipe his hands, and said with contempt in his eyes, “You don’t dare to offend the program team, so you came to find Xiao Bei, in the end, you just know that Xiao Bei is soft and easy to talk to. The persimmon picks the soft side to pinch.”
Zhuang Xinran: “No, I really want to apologize, I ……”
“After all is done, is it not dutiful to speak of it afterward? Or are you going to make a green tea b*tch persona?” Shi Fei craned his neck, his voice slightly cold as he said, “Whether it’s sincere or not, we don’t accept it. You have five seconds to disappear from sight, so don’t affect my appetite.”
The fact that Shi Fei was so unrelenting in his dislike of him made Zhuang Xinran feel shameless and coupled with the whispered comments of the other players beside him, Zhuang Xinran finally got up and planned to leave.
“Wait a moment, take your plate away.” Shi Fei spoke up, taking a look at the plate on the table.
Zhuang Xinran pursed his lips, slightly aggrieved, and took his plate and left.
Seeing the expression on his face when he finally left, Shi Fei was speechless, it was such a difficult situation, and he still didn’t forget to sell a white lotus [pure] expression when he left.
Turning to look at the person next to him, he took a deep breath and asked, “If I didn’t come, were you still really planning to forgive him?”
He Xiaobei looked a little embarrassed, his ears slightly reddened and he whispered, “No, no.”
How could Shi Fei not know, one look at his expression and he sighed and said, “Xiao Bei, you have to learn to reject others. Don’t feel bad every time you turn someone down, you’re the victim of this. If you’re too kind-hearted it’s tantamount to aiding and abetting the evil, got it?”
He Xiaobei blushed and nodded his head quickly, “Mm-hmm, I know.”
The reasoning was actually understood, but the nature he had been raised with was such that he would not reject others, and would feel very guilty every time he did.
Shi Fei reached out and hooked He Xiaobei’s chin, making him raise his head and chest, saying, “Chest up, be confident.”
He Xiaobei lifted his chin, “Like this?” The back of his head connected directly to the back.
Shi Fei laughed speechlessly.
At this time, Yu Zixing and Xu Ruohao came to eat together, and they chose to sit across Shi Fei and the others.
Xu Ruohao was taking his phone and checking Weibo while eating, and after a while, he shouted in alarm, “Xiao Bei, you’re on the hot search.”
“Is the residual heat from yesterday’s broadcast of the show still not over?” He Xiaobei was puzzled, although he didn’t often play with Weibo, he also knew that few Weibo hot searches could still last the next day.
“No, it’s the new tune you recorded this morning, A Diao, that’s on Weibo Hot Search.” Xu Ruhao showed his phone to He Xiaobei.
# He Xiaobei’s strength to sing the inspirational song “A Diao’.
This post was now on the fourth, and it looked like it was going to go up a bit more.
“What the hell?” He Xiaobei didn’t think that he was really that capable of getting on the hot search, he looking at Shi Fei, did Brother Fei make it?
Shi Fei continued to eat the rice in the bowl, “Don’t look at me, I didn’t make it, I don’t have the money to buy a hot search for you.”
After He Xiaobei posted his singing of “A Diao” online, those contestants were even more confronted with the distance between their singing skills.
Yesterday Zhuang Xinran sang “my paradise” the highest note was E5, at that time the people on the scene could hear, his high notes were short of breath, but the result was that he was promoted.
Today, He Xiaobei also sang a song filled with high notes, with the highest note being F5, and he overpowered his opponent in terms of high note alone, not to mention that his pitch was very good, so anyone could tell who was stronger.
Everyone looked at Zhuang Xinran with even more disdain.
Zhuang Xinran, who was originally disliked by Shi Fei and had no appetite to eat, saw the content on Weibo, now completely lost interest in eating, he put his chopsticks down with a heavy face and left first.
The airing of last night’s show coupled with today’s song being on the hot search, He Xiaobei’s popularity had increased a lot.
Among the pending contestants, he was currently the most popular, and also threw off the second place by quite a bit.
Teng Haining was nonchalant when he saw the heat search and ranking, he hadn’t even thought that Shi Fei would take He Xiaobei to the studio to record a song without giving an account to the band, and they exploited this loophole.
It would be too late to blame the band, and Teng Haining could only deal with the technical department, “Crush He Xiaobei’s votes, and never let him enter the top three.”
“Okay.” The technician manipulated the backstage data and wanted to make adjustments, but after working on it for a while, he still didn’t get it done and said in surprise, “Director Teng, it seems like there’s a bug in the backstage data, and it’s impossible to modify the data artificially.”
“What’s the situation?”
