Chapter 69

However, some said that it was just his character and temperament to be cold and indifferent. After all, they could see that he was still very gentle and got along well with his roommates. Some also said that the person who posted the alarming post was trying to shake up the fan circle and some started to worry deeply about the state of their idols.

In the late stage of the program, the recording of the theme song began to be assessed, and the trainees began to use only three days to train desperately. The part given to Cen Feng was him standing indifferently and slacking off.

Fans were expecting him to perform well in this episode, so that the black fans have nothing to say, but he turned out to be even more indifferent and had no care than in the last episode?

Especially after this episode was broadcasted, the program team put up the theme song video. Everyone watched the entire video but did not find even Cen Feng’s shadow even though he was also from class F.

Even Zhou Mingyu has entered the D class, and he could be seen during the group shots. Cen Feng was a seven-year-long trainee, but he let a vegetarian who has never practiced before beat him?

Many people immediately announced that they were withdrawing from his fan base.

Originally the super talk was in turmoil because of concerns about Cen Feng’s status, and with such a play, the solidity of the powder circle was in jeopardy. Cen Feng’s ranking immediately plummeted from fifth to tenth.

Seeing that the entry of [Cen Feng slacking off] was about to be one of the hot searches, Xu Zhaixing, who was always paying attention to fandom immediately arranged for the public relations department to suppress it and cleaned up a wave of bad comments, to minimize the discussion related to Cen Feng.

Xu Zhaixing was not worried when she heard about some fans abandoning Cen Feng. After all, she already knew that it was perfectly normal for a newly established fan group to have unstable fans and impure intentions.

The only thing she worried about was her idol’s state of mind.

She used to think that as long as the dangers around him were cleared in advance, giving him an unhindered path to his dreams and making his future life all happy and smooth, he would not become depressed as he did before.

Yet the tenderness and patience he always showed in front of her deceived her.

Until this time, he showed his indifference and boredom in a place she couldn’t see.

She had no right to interfere with his thoughts, but she wished she could do something to make him happier.

She had to let him know that it didn’t matter if he didn’t debut, that it didn’t matter if he didn’t want to perform, that no matter what decision he made, she, and many others, loved him unconditionally.

Xu Zhaixing posted on Cen Feng’s super talk.

——You become the wind: going to the training camp to visit the class, what gifts (not too expensive) or personal letters you can give and I’ll help it pass to brother, I can forward on your behalf~!

With pictures: screenshots of a work permit and fundraising support.

[You become the wind] This ID has been registered long before, and the first person on her follow list was Cen Feng. After establishing Cen Feng’s super talk, she also become active against black powder and her account was one of the top five accounts on the fund-raising list.

After the turmoil in the past two days, the fans who remained after the storm were pure and solid. They all screamed as they left messages to Xu Zhaixing.

——If so, when? Can I write now?!

——Ahhh you are a staff!!! So envious!! Can you help me tell brother we love him very much!!!

——If I send you a private letter, send me your address. I want to send some snacks to my baby

——The one above can’t write in time. Can I practice calligraphy in time now? Will my brother dislike my elementary penmanship?

——Ruo Ruo take a screenshot of my post to show brother!!! Baby, the ranking doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter if you can debut or not, it doesn’t matter if you can make it big or not, we just want you to be happy and smile a little more! You are still young, this show is just the beginning for you, you still have infinite possibilities in the future, and we will always be there! Go, baby! We love you!

……….

…….

Xu Zhaixing gave the kites[1]who wrote letters the address of the mailroom of the recording camp and promised that they would take complimentary photos of the scene if they had the chance.

Letters have been going on all day for two days, she made a phone call to the mailroom staff to explain and let Bai Feifei who had been stationed at the camp to collect the courier at any time.

Starting the next day, gifts arrived one after another.

Xu Zhaixing found a cart and loaded all the gifts into it, then pushed the cart and went happily to find Cen Feng under the training building.

Inside the training room, Cen Feng was still practicing the dance with his group members.

The choreography for the song “Scream” was ten times more difficult than their theme song. After all, the theme song was a team dance, striving for a simple, neat, and ornamental feel. The dance style was light and lively, full of teenage spirit.

However, “Scream” was a heavy rock song, rearranged in a gorgeous style with a strong sense of rhythm, requiring a particularly high level of stepping, beat, and force, with most of the dance moves requiring strong body coordination and flexibility. That’s why it’s considered the most difficult of the five songs.

Although Cen Feng had already refined the movements in great detail, it was still too difficult for the F class students whose merit and talent were not up to par.

After learning for several days, they still couldn’t connect the dance movements, and the movements were not standard. Cen Feng needs to correct them again and again. Seeing that the public performance drew closer and closer, everyone blamed themselves apologized dejectedly to Cen Feng.

In all this time, he has never been impatient.

Even if the member made mistakes in the same action repeatedly, he corrected it over and over again and wasn’t angry even once. He has been patiently leading them forward step by step.

A staff member at the door shouted to him.

“Cen Feng, come out.”

He leaned down to pick up his hat from the ground and put it on, covering his hair that was wet with sweat, and said in a light voice.

“Rest for a while, and practice again when I come back.”

All nine men collapsed to the ground as if relieved.

Cen Feng walked to the door and the staff said.

“There’s someone downstairs in the waiting room looking for you.”

He knew who it was as soon as he heard it, and the corners of his always indifferent lips curved imperceptibly.

He took the elevator downstairs, walked to the waiting room, pushed open the slightly open door, and saw Xu Zhaixing lying on the table playing with her phone, next to a cart full of delivery boxes.

When she heard the sound of the door opening, she sat up straight and looked back, calling out to him cheerfully.

“Brother!”

Then she stood up and asked nervously.

“Brother, why have you lost weight? Are you too tired from training?”

Cen Feng smiled: “The program team asked us to lose weight.”

Xu Zhaixing was furious.

“What weight loss! You’re not fat at all! What does the program team know! You were the most suitable looking when you were fatter and proportionate!”

Whenever she was angry her face would bulge looking like a little cute baby.

Cen Feng’s heart felt soft for no reason as he deliberately said.

“But everyone is thin.”

Xu Zhaixing puffed up: “But you’re not allowed to be thin either! You have to eat more meat! Grow more flesh! You are more handsome than them even if you are fat!”

Cen Feng chuckled: “Okay, I get it.”

He looked at the cart behind her. “What’s that?”

Xu Zhaixing’s exasperated expression changed and was immediately replaced with a treasure-like excitement as she pulled the cart towards him with her hand and happily said.

“Brother, these are all gifts from your fans!”

Cen Feng was stunned: “My fans?”

Xu Zhaixing nodded: “Yes! There are letters written personally by them, there are also snacks for you, and slippers with soft soles. In the last episode featuring your dormitory life didn’t Zhou Mingyu slip using your slippers! This slipper is anti-slip! And this, this is a massage instrument, you can use when you are tired of training!”

She took them out one by one and piled them on the table before she pulled a boxcutter out of her pocket.

“Brother, open the gifts! I have the most fun every time I open a delivery!”

Cen Feng was silent for a moment before going over to take the boxcutter and opening them one by one.

They were not anything expensive but he could see the fans’ sincerity and love.

Xu Zhaixing took out his phone.

“Brother, here are some more messages from fans, they told me to make sure to show you. You open the gifts, I’ll read it to you ah.”

She cleared her throat and read it line by line.

This kind of thing would be a little embarrassing to read out, but Xu Zhaixing did not feel it at all.

He needed them, she thought.

He had to know that many people in the world loved him with all their passion and who supported him unconditionally no matter what choice he made.

So, if he sees the world more, he would love the world a little more.

Don’t hate it.

Don’t leave it.

Cen Feng silently listened to the voice of Xu Zhaixing, surrounded by gifts piled up on the table in the waiting room. Finally, there was a large stack of letters—it was more than 100 of them.

The colorful envelope exudes a fragrant smell. The envelope was written in the best-looking and most clever handwriting: Cen Feng personally opened it.

Across thousands of mountains and rivers, those who loved him showed up in front of him.

Xu Zhaixing did not know when to stop.

The only sound in the whole room was the unpacking of the boxes.

Finally, all of them were opened. He glanced at the gifts one by one. Xu Zhaixing pursed her lips and asked.

“Brother, are you happy to receive these?”

He turned his head slightly, his thin lips moved a little, and after a long time, he whispered.

“It doesn’t have to be like this.”

Xu Zhaixing smiled sweetly.

“Yes! You have given us so much, we want to give you something too.”

His always indifferent look froze for a moment as he subconsciously asked.

“What have I ever given you?”

Xu Zhaixing tilted her head slightly and looked into his deep, dark eyes.

After a long time, she curled her lips and whispered.

“You gave us light ah.”
