I’m Really A Superstar Chapter 1583
It was the weekend.
In the morning.
Old Wu took a rare day off from work while Sisi was on summer break from kindergarten. The mother and daughter were up early in the morning, leaving Zhang Ye still lazing in bed. He wouldn’t get up no matter what.
“What is it?”
“Daddy, get up.”
“Let your father sleep another two hours.”
“Mommy said that you aren’t a good child if you laze around in bed.”
“Daddy is not a child.”
“Get up quickly, Daddy.”
“Then come and give Daddy a kiss.”
Zhang Ye was being shameless.
Sisi was getting anxious.
Wu Zeqing slowly walked to the bedside and said with a smile, “How are you not a child? You’re a child through and through. How old are you? Shouldn’t you be setting an example to our child? Hur hur.” She then carried Sisi onto the bed. “Give Daddy a kiss and ask him to get up.”
Sisi gave Zhang Ye a kiss.
Zhang Ye turned over and said, “Your Mommy has to give me a kiss as well.”
Wu Zeqing smiled and lowered her head to kiss him as well. “There.”
Yawning, Zhang Ye finally stretched himself and sat up in bed. His outstretched arms wrapped around his wife and daughter and he hugged them. “Say, this bro’s days are so comfortable. Every day is such a wonderful day. I wouldn’t exchange such a life even if I were offered the position of president.” He then took his cell phone from the bedside table and opened the camera app. He selected the selfie mode and said, “Quick, let’s take a family picture together.”
Wu Zeqing smiled and said, “But I haven’t washed up yet.”
Zhang Ye said, “My wife is good-looking even if she hasn’t washed her face yet.”
“Oh, you.” Wu Zeqing was left with no choice.
When Sisi saw herself on the screen, she revealed a very cute look.
Zhang Ye laughed heartily and said, “It’s done. I’ll put it up on Moments!”
With just a few taps, he uploaded it.
Almost instantly, quite a few people in his Moments liked the picture.
Yao Jiancai replied: ” Sharenting 1 ?”
Fan Wenli replied: “Minister Wu is so beautiful!”
Ning Lan replied: “You’re showing off your wife and sharenting so early in the morning? Should you really be doing this?”
The deputy station head of Central TV replied: “Your daughter is so cute.”
Xiaodong replied: “Wow, Sisi is such a good girl. I want to give her a kiss! *drooling emote*”
Amy replied: “Minister Wu still looks so good without her makeup? So jealous *tableflip emoticon*”
The response was very enthusiastic.
Zhang Ye was very happy.
This was exactly the effect he wanted!
As a result, this fellow was getting the hang of this feeling. After breakfast, Wu Zeqing started playing with Sisi. They would go out into the yard to play on the swing, water the plants, play with Sisi’s new toys, and let her try on her new clothes. Wu Zeqing was unlike Zhang Ye. Zhang Ye’s enthusiasm would only last a short while. He could play with the child crazily for half an hour before feeling tired and pulling himself out of the situation. But Old Wu could play with the child for an entire day, even squeezing in cooking in between. She was meticulous as a person. Perhaps this was the difference between a father and a mother.
The mother and daughter were happily playing while Zhang Ye took pictures of them. Sometimes, he would take pictures of his wife, and sometimes, he would take pictures of his daughter.
A hundred pictures.
His Moments started filling up with his posts.
The text that he posted along with the pictures were also particularly poetic.
“Mommy is the best in the world.”
Tap, tap, tap. He attached nine photos of Old Wu to the post.
“My daughter is a good little girl.”
Tap, tap, tap. He attached nine photos of Sisi to the post.
“Mother and daughter are my two treasures.”
Tap, tap, tap. He attached nine photos of Old Wu and Sisi to the post.
“While Daddy is only a blade of grass.”
Tap! He attached a single photo of himself nestled in a corner.
The people on Zhang Ye’s Moments were going crazy.
His eldest younger sister: “Pfft, Brother is obsessively posting pictures of his wife!”
His third sister commented: “And also obsessively posting his daughter’s pictures too!”
Grandma Zhang Xia commented: “Little Zhang has gone crazy.”
His mother commented: “Why are you posting so many updates? Do you have nothing better to do?”
At the beginning, everyone was liking his posts and replying to them. After all, Zhang Ye didn’t usually post much on Moments. But when he posted his 10th post on Moments, the number of people liking it had become significantly fewer. By the time he reached his 20th post, barely anyone gave him any more Likes or commented on them. Oh, but it wasn’t totally no one. There was still a person who was tirelessly liking and commenting on his posts. Whenever Zhang Ye posted something, he would like it. He didn’t miss out on any of the posts.
This guy was Supervisor Ke.
A department head at the Central Publicity Department.
Supervisor Ke was also going crazy. Wu Zeqing was his supervisor and his direct boss. Due to the TV series the Central Publicity Department had funded, he had added Zhang Ye to his contacts. When he saw all those posts of his boss and her daughter, how could he possibly not like them and add a comment? Supervisor Ke was well-known at his workplace for going on a spree with his Likes. As long as it were anyone in his Moments, he would always make sure to press Like on their posts. This was a habit for him. If he could always press Like on the posts of his normal colleagues, how could he not Like the posts that his direct boss was in? That wouldn’t be acceptable. This was a mistake that Supervisor Ke would obviously not commit. But as things would have it, Zhang Ye posted several dozen updates onto his Moments today. As such, he also liked all several dozen posts and would wrack his brains to think of what to comment on each of them.
Supervisor Ke: “It’s been hard on Minister Wu. She works hard at the office and also has to take care of her child on the weekends.”
Supervisor Ke: “Sisi is so adorable. She’s becoming prettier and prettier.”
Supervisor Ke: “What flowers are these? They’re nice.”
Supervisor Ke: “Where did you buy this toy? It’s nice!”
Supervisor Ke: “This outfit suits Sisi great. It’s nice!”
Supervisor Ke: “This hairpin on Sisi’s head—It’s nice!”
For the entire morning.
Zhang Ye didn’t feel tired at all from his postings on Moments.
However, Supervisor Ke was almost burnt out by it. His eyes had turned green with nausea!
During lunch, Wu Zeqing finally checked her cell phone.
Old Wu said helplessly, “Just how many times did you post? I browsed through five of them already, and I’m still not done.”
Zhang Ye said, “I don’t remember, but it’s not a small number.”
“Oh, you.” Wu Zeqing smiled as she shook her head.
Zhang Ye casually switched on the television. When it came on, it was a news report about the State Science and Technology Prizes. It seemed like the momentum of this news wouldn’t die off for at least a week. However, it could be deduced from this point that the people and the media were all in shock and disbelief over Zhang Ye becoming a great scientist. From a notorious hacker, he had now turned into a hero of science. This contrast couldn’t be greater, so everyone definitely found it difficult to accept at the moment.
Wu Zeqing asked, “You’re still not planning to reopen your popularity ranking?”
Zhang Ye said, “I’m still waiting for Sister Lan’s news.”
They had been friends for many years, so there was a need for this. He also understood that it was the best opportunity to reopen his Chinese popularity rankings right now. Prestige, topicality, reputation, he was at the pinnacle of all that at this moment. In fact, his current reputation was even better than before he got imprisoned. To say that his popularity had doubled from that time would not be an exaggeration.
Perhaps it was a blessing in disguise. Back then, Zhang Ye’s popularity had reached a bottleneck, especially his Chinese popularity. The highest he got to at that time was around the sixth place of the S-list rankings. Based on the order of that, he didn’t even manage to get into the top five in China. Moreover, Zhang Ye had pushed it to the extremes. Even if he were to continue with his efforts at that time, he would probably not have seen too great of a change in one or two years. However, after consolidating for several years and with that rapid era change in the entertainment circle, Zhang Ye could still stand here and regain the popularity that he once had. In fact, it was even higher than that, close enough to the point that he had hopes of catching up to the seat of the person at the top. This was a miracle that no one else could replicate. His name was a legend in the entertainment industry!
He was only one step away.
And this was a step Zhang Ye wasn’t sure he could take.
Ring, ring, ring.
His cell phone suddenly rang. It was from Xu Meilan.
Zhang Ye answered: “Sister Lan?”
On the other end, Xu Meilan said with a chuckle: “You’ve been waiting a long time, haven’t you?”
“It’s fine, I’m not anxious,” Zhang Ye said with a laugh.
Xu Meilan said: “Thank you. This time, Big Sis owes you a great big favor. If there’s anything you need in the future, just tell me.”
Zhang Ye was startled to hear that. “Your movie has premiered?”
Xu Meilan said: “It premiered two days ago.”
Zhang Ye exclaimed: “Ah? Then how’s your popularity ranking?”
Xu Meilan giggled. “You didn’t check the popularity rankings, right?”
“True, you were busy posting on Moments all morning. Hur hur, Big Sis has risen to sixth on the S-list rankings. I’m no longer in last place, so hurry up and reopen your ranking. I don’t want to delay your matters for too long.” She said sincerely: “I hope that you will be able to soar to the Heavens this time. Of all the celebrities from back then, it all depends on you now.”
Zhang Ye belly laughed and said: “Sure, I’ll be counting on your blessings then.”
After hanging up.
Wu Zeqing asked, “Is it time?”
Zhang Ye smiled and said, “Sister Lan’s matter is dealt with. She’s now second to last on the S-list rankings. Even if my popularity score is ahead of hers and pushes her back down the rankings, she will still get to keep her Heavenly Queen status.” Rubbing his hands together, he took a deep breath. “But I really do feel a little nervous right now. This bro has been doing so much recently, but what if I can’t even get back on the S-list? What if I still remain below Sister Lan in the rankings? That would be so embarrassing. Where will this bro hide his face if that happens?”
But Wu Zeqing said, “Don’t think too much.”
Zhang’er said, “Alright, I’ll listen to my wife.”
Wu Zeqing asked, “Are you going out now?”
“Yes, I’ll head to the studio for a bit,” Zhang Ye said.
Wu Zeqing said, “Come back early.”
Zhang Ye said, “OK.”
It was the calm before the storm.
This was what many of those in the entertainment circle who were well-informed were feeling. Perhaps a change might really be coming to the entertainment circle soon!
