Chapter 4- Status: To Protect
Status: To Protect
Ran Shu took out his mobile phone with one hand. He logged into his account to check the latest news and soon found Su Diandian’s apology on Weibo.
Su Diandian: [After thinking about it for a few days, I still want to apologize to everyone, especially to Senior Ran. It was indeed my fault before, but I was unwilling to admit my mistake immediately and wanted to cover up the past in other ways. As a result, the snowball got bigger and bigger, causing the current situation. I’m very sorry.]
Ran Shu opened the comment and glanced at it roughly. This comment seems to be no longer a stage for diehard fans.
[Summary points: 1. It was indeed Su Diandian who turned his back and went ahead to curse Ran Shu. 2. Su Diandian was afraid of his character’s collapse after seeing the news, so he chose to pull Ran Shu back. He made public opinion smear Ran Shu’s reputation at that time. 3. He can’t hide it anymore, so he can only apologize. He’s hoping that it won’t be too miserable for him as he saves face.]
[In the beginning, it wasn’t a big deal, but he had to deal with it in the wrong way. As a result, he started making trouble and escalated into a character issue. He even maliciously smeared his predecessors to whitewash himself, insisting that he has a good relationship with Ran Shu. To think that Ran Shu’s temperament will cooperate with you! Not knowing that it will totally backfire.]
[Diandian has realized that he was wrong, but his company guided the public opinion. What is the matter with him? How old is he? Why doesn’t he understand anything?]
[It’s good to know that you are owning up to your mistakes. We will grow up with you. ]
[It’s really not a big deal. I still think you’re cute. I’ll touch your head, and it’ll all be alright.]
Ran Shu looked at his phone for a while and asked. “Did you point a rocket launcher at his ancestral grave? Otherwise, how could he agree to this kind of suicidal apology?”
Sang Xian replied lightly, “Oh, I accidentally took a photo of him and Hu Yongqi together. This is the way he chose to deal with it.”
Putting Su Diandian and Hu Yongqi’s relationship in front of him, whether to apologize or reveal the relationship, Su Diandian will definitely choose to apologize.
If others knew that he was committed to the old man in order to rise to the top, this would be a devastating blow to him.
Ran Shu was stunned for a moment before asking, “Isn’t he an artist of your company? You’ve ruined your cash cow.”
“Why…are you not my cash cow? Or are you saying that you can’t bear it?”
“How is that possible?!” Ran Shu denied without hesitation, “I just don’t understand you…”
“So, the two of you have been punished. Do you already recognize this punishment?”

He was given ideological and moral training.
While Su Diandian was asked to apologize as his character set collapsed.
In comparison, his side is really nothing to be called as a punishment.
Ran Shu pretended to be okay with it. He looked at the lamp in his hand and began to wrap his fingers around its wire before answering hesitantly. “It’s… ok.”
Sang Xian seemed to notice the lamp in his hand just now. He was not surprised, but he asked in a steady tone, “Why did you bring a desk lamp?”
“Oh!” Ran Shu put the lamp on the table and introduced it to Sang Xian, “I heard that the lighting in this office is not very good, so I brought it here especially for you. Here’s a desk lamp. You can turn it on and try it. It’s nothing but bright!”
Brother Liu calmly looked at the L-shaped floor-to-ceiling windows of the office. He looked at the sunny interior, helping Ran Shu to dig his toes in embarrassment.
Unexpectedly, Sang Xian looked at the table lamp before looking at Ran Shu. He smiled lightly as he speaks. “Thank you.”
Ran Shu’s answer was even more impeccable: “You’re welcome.”
Brother Liu stood aside and watched, secretly relaxing on the background. He took a deep breath of relief.
He couldn’t help but guess: Sang Xian wouldn’t be a fan of Ran Shu, would he?
Su Diandian is also the company’s traffic artist, and Sang Xian is really willing to avenge Ran Shu for such a traffic artist who ruined his own career.
It is simply to spend a lot of money to chase stars in the entertainment industry.
Otherwise, he really can’t think of any other reason.
Ran Shu had nothing more to say to stay in the office. So he was about to say goodbye when he heard Sang Xian say: “In order to restore your image, I donated to a number of mental hospitals in your name.”
“…” Ran Shu tried to raise the corners of his mouth but failed to smile perfectly. There was a flaw in his expression management.
“What?” Sang Xian looked up at him, “Don’t you like it?”
“I like it! I like it so much that everyone is refreshed. It’s good. It’s a good deed.”
Ran Shu returned home. He took off his shoes before taking his mobile phone out. He then made a voice call to Suihou Yu.
As soon as the other party connected, he yelled at the phone hoarsely: “Brother Yu, Sang Xian, he——”
“Pa——” the call was hung up.
Ran Shu was startled while holding the phone.
His boyfriend picked it up?
He didn’t give up, though. He called again, waited for the other party to connect, and asked. “Brother Yu? Or are you the dog monkey?”
“Me.” The other party asked whil chewing gum.
“Brother Yu, let me tell you something about Sang Xian. He–”
Pa— the phone was hung up again.
Sui Hou Yu, a friend who participated in Ran Shu and Sang Xian’s 108-style breakup.
Regarding the breakup between him and Sang Xian, Suihou Yu was so numb that he hung up the phone whenever he heard the keywords about it. As if listening to one more sentence and persuading him from the side, he is the number one fool in the world.
Ran Shu didn’t give up and texted Suihou Yu: [Don’t you think it’s been a long time?]
Brother Yu is as beautiful as a flower: [?]
RS: [I haven’t talked to you about him in two years.]
Brother Yu is as beautiful as a flower: [Every time you get drunk, you have to call me. Every time you have to scold Sang Xian, you call me. And then you also ask me to help you find him most of the time.]
RS: [No, it’s for you to beat him!]
Brother Yu is as beautiful as a flower: [What happened to him? You reconciled? Or split again?]
RS: [You want to hear?]
Brother Yu is as beautiful as a flower: […]
RS: [Answer the phone.]
Brother Yu is as beautiful as a flower: [I want to give you an unforgettable night.]
RS: [? ? ?]
Ran Shu looked at the red sign in front of the message prompt text below and fell silent.
He… was blocked.
However, he didn’t give up. Ran Shu sent another message to another friend and saw the red sign again.
Ran Shu: “…”
As expected of his Brother Yu, the news was delivered so quickly.
