Retired Villainess Transmigrates into a Cannon Fodder - Chapter 767
Golden Agent of the Adonis (87)
She smiled and called out, “Come one.Playing a few more rounds of this game makes it interesting.”
In the next round, Zhou Yuan lost again. When she was shaking the jar to draw a question, she couldn’t get one out for a while. Fang Zhenxuan took the initiative and said, “Let me shake the jar. In any case, whichever question comes out will count.”
Then, he took the jar, subtly gave it a turn, and shook it vigorously. A slip of paper fell out, one of the ones he had written: “Are you willing to sacrifice everything, including your life, for your current lover?”
Even though Zhou Yuan prided herself on having been in the business for 20 years and being able to handle any situation, she couldn’t help but freeze for a moment when she heard this question. A teenager in her early teens could easily say, “I’m willing,” and no one would say anything. They would even smile and say the young girl was very cute.
But she was 30 years old. If she answered, “I’m willing”, she would definitely be seen love-struck and blinded by it. She had only been with Chen Lifeng for a few months. Was she willing to sacrifice everything and give up her life for him? Wouldn’t that be too fake?
But if she answered the opposite, they had been working hard to portray their affection in this show. This “not willing” response might not be well-received by the audience, and most importantly, it would anger their CP fans who were the focus of this show.
Zhou Yuan smiled and appeared to contemplate, “How should I put this?”
The other girls nodded in agreement to save her face and said, “This question is difficult to answer.”
Zhou Yuan chuckled again, “I’ve never really thought about this question before. After all, my life is quite stable and happy. You guys are so mean. Who came up with this question?”
Fang Zhenxuan raised his hand and answered sheepishly, “It’s me. Is this question difficult? Sorry, I thought it was a simple question. Please forgive me. I haven’t been in a relationship yet, so in this regard… um, maybe my thoughts are simple.”
Zhou Yuan asked, “So, do you think you can sacrifice everything for love? Including your life? Really?”
“Hmm,” Fang Zhenxuan nodded naturally. “I believe love is not a necessity in life, but if I have a loved one, I would definitely confess my feelings and be with her because I love her deeply. So, whether it’s out of love or responsibility, I would be willing to give my all for her.”
The three girls pondered for a moment and nodded along, “You’re right.”
With that, Zhou Yuan’s previous hesitation immediately seemed heartless. In fact, it was normal to hesitate on such a question, but what Fang Zhenxuan said about being deeply in love before being together, and being willing to give one’s all out of love and responsibility, made a lot of sense.
If you don’t love someone that much, why stay together? Settle for a mediocre relationship? And if you love someone that much, why not give your all? Love was not a cheap, casual affair. Furthermore, there was also responsibility. To become a partner, if you couldn’t deliver complete trust and give your all, then those two words “lover” seemed a bit pitiful to think about.
Sometimes, people’s feelings were like this. Whichever side’s argument was more appealing, people were more willing to support that side. Fang Zhenxuan effortlessly put Zhou Yuan in a difficult position with just a few words. Although the three girls mentioned earlier that this question was difficult to answer, they appeared more like they were trying to save Zhou Yuan. They wouldn’t be targeted at all.
The only person in this segment who might be disliked by the audience was Zhou Yuan, who hesitated and didn’t answer. Did she really love Chen Lifeng? If she didn’t love him enough, then why did they mention wanting to get married in the previous two episodes?
Regardless of reality, everyone watched this kind of variety show to appreciate a beautiful romance, right? If the captivating facade was removed, then what was there to watch about this couple?
Zhou Yuan racked her brains, trying to figure out how to salvage the situation, but Fang Zhenxuan said, “Want to play another round? This game is quite fun.”
“Go, go, go, let’s play another round,” the other girls seconded. Seeing Zhou Yuan’s embarrassment, the smiled to help diffuse the situation. However, inadvertently, they deprived her of the opportunity to redeem herself.
Sister Qing whispered to Chu Xiang, “Your handsome young man is quite cunning! He’s deadly without shedding blood, impressive.”
Chu Xiang whispered back, “Of course, if he doesn’t enter the entertainment industry, he would definitely become a famous and undefeated general in the legal profession.”
“Yo-yo-yo, look at you being so proud. You now have someone to stand up for you. But remember to remind him not to go too far and offend people unnecessarily.”
“Don’t worry, he knows his limits.”
Indeed, Fang Zhenxuan knew what he was doing and handled himself well in front of the camera. He had a grasp of the balance and knew when to stop. However, he didn’t let go of every opportunity to paint Zhou Yuan ugly. In the following rounds, when everyone had their turn to lose, Fang Zhenxuan took charge of shaking the lottery jar, and almost all the questions drawn were written by the other three girls. They were questions like “Can you still be friends with your ex?” or “How long did it take for you to define your relationship with your boyfriend?” They were completely safe questions with no chances of stirring thunder.
But when it was Zhou Yuan’s turn, Fang Zhenxuan shook the jar and drew one of his own questions.
“How often do you plan to meet your in-laws after marriage, and how would you maintain a good relationship with them?”
“Do you want to have a boy or a girl or be a DINK?”
“Name the most unacceptable habit of the girls you have lived with.”
“Age of first love.”
