Xu Que was excited. He started to send a message to Xu Feifei immediately, “Feifei, it’s me! I am really your elder brother. I didn’t die!”
But this time the message was not sent successfully. Like the night before, the message was always in the status of sending.
“Damn! Are you kidding me? You failed to send the important message, but could send the unimportant message instantly!” Xu Que cursed and almost crushed the cell phone because of anger.
The warning tone of an incoming message came just at this time. Xu Que turned back to the screen and found it was a message from Cai Tengjin.
“Holy crap! It is a special effect! Really? This…is not scientific! Your special effect is so vivid. I guess even Hollywood couldn’t do that!”
After reading this message, Xu Que couldn’t help but laugh to himself. What he had said was nonsense! How could special effects be more vivid than the real objects?
At this time, Cai Tengjin sent another message, “Former classmate, just cut it out. Tell me where you are. I am shooting a film on the top of a mountain. The signal here is quite poor. I can only contact you through the satellite phone channel of a big shot!”
A personal satellite phone channel?
Xu Que was stunned. Could it be that I can receive Cai Tengjin’s message instantly because of the connection to a satellite telephone channel?
To prove his idea, Xu Que started to send a lot of messages to other friends. Then, he sent a message to reply to Cai Tengjin.
As expected, all the messages sent to others failed. The only one that went through was the one to Cai Tengjin, which was sent instantly. Xu Que was not disappointed. On the contrary, he was quite happy. He shouted excitedly, “Holy crap! Finally, I have found a way to contact my friends and family!”
He clicked the number sent by Cai Tengjin and started to make a phone call, anxiously waiting. If he could get through, it would be awesome, for then he could contact anyone on Earth who had a satellite phone channel! Although he didn’t understand the principle of this technology, he thought it worth a try after all!
Soon, he heard the waiting tone, which meant he had gotten through successfully. The phone was picked up at last!
Hearing the voice come out of the cell phone, Xu Que shouted excitedly, “Lao Cai! Holy crap! Lao Cai! Damn! I made it finally!”
“Eh? You are…Xu Que?” Cai Tengjin sounded uncertain, as he was shocked by Xu Que’s reaction.
Xu Que shouted excitedly, “Yes, it’s me! Lao Cai! My awesome Cai!”
“Holy crap! Finally, you called me back! Are you shooting a costume drama? Those clothes you’re wearing are so old-fashioned. Come on, tell me where you are. I will make a serial drama for you. Your handsome face will definitely make you famous!” Cai Tengjin replied.
Xu Que ignored his words and said directly, “Lao Cai, do you remember my younger sister, Xu Feifei? I lost touch with her. Please help me find her, for her life might be endangered!”
Lao Cai replied, “Feifei? Of course, I remember her. But I haven’t contacted her for a long time. Why did you lose touch with her?”
Xu Que said, “This is not important. The point is we should find her as soon as possible for I am worried about her safety!”
Lao Cai said, “OK, how long has it been since you lost touch with her?”
Xu Que was choked by this question, “Eh…what is the current year?”
Lao Cai was stunned by Xu Que’s question, then he replied embarrassedly, “My God! Are you kidding me? The year is 2023!”
Xu Que replied, counting on his fingers, “That’s right. I’ve lost touch with her for six years!”
His words made Lao Cai pause. “You’ve lost touch with your younger sister for six years! Why do you want to find her now in such a hurry?” Lao Cai was totally confused and even thought Xu Que had lost his mind.
Xu Que replied, “Right! That is a long and complicated story! I am only able to contact you now. Please help me find her!”
“What? You can only contact me?” Lao Cai said in surprise. “It is quite weird. The signal is quite poor here. All cell phones of my crew are not functional, but I can only call you! Don’t worry! The shooting here will be finished in a few days. I will definitely help you to find her after going home.”
“OK, thank you! This is really important, please don’t forget it! When I return, I will repay your kindness!” Xu Que replied.
“That won’t be necessary. Just tell me the address of the place where you took that picture!”
“My God! That is really a special effect!” Xu Que said embarrassedly.
“Special…effect? OK, OK, it is a special effect! If you have time, you can record a video for me, so that I can have a good look at your…special effect!”
Apparently, Lao Cai didn’t believe what Xu Que said. But he still replied as if he did because he really wanted to see that ancient city.
Xu Que replied with a smile, “OK, no problem! But you should remember the place you made this call and the satellite phone channel you are using, or you will lose touch with me!”
“What the heck, you…”
All of a sudden,a busy tone came out of Xu Que’s cell phone before Lao Cai finished his words.
“Damn! It’s really disconnected!” Xu Que said disappointedly, as what he was worried about had really happened. He pressed the redial button immediately. Then a lady’s voice came from the cell phone, “Sorry, your telephone service is suspended. Please pay your telephone bill on time.…”
I’ve got no credit left!
Xu Que’s eyes opened wide. He never expected that his plans could be screwed up because he forgot to pay the telephone bill.
After hanging up the phone, he got a short message. He was dumbfounded by the content of it..
“Dear User, Up to July 21, 2023, the amount you owe on your telephone bill has reached 26,705 Yuan. To avoid affecting your usage, please pay your telephone bill on time. Thanks for your cooperation!”
“I owe…over 26,000 Yuan? Damn! This service provider is really a profiteer!” Xu Que was totally annoyed.
At the same time, on Earth, a film crew was busy working on a remote mountain. Hearing the busy tone from his cell phone, Lao Cai couldn’t help but frown, “Damn! How dare he hang up on my call!”
After saying that, he called Xu Que back, but was stunned. The service provider told him the service of the number he had called had been suspended.
“Shit! This guy has used up his credit! We were talking about business. How could he use up his credit?” Lao Cai shook his head embarrassedly.
At this time, one crew member shouted in surprise, “Hah-hah, I can make a phone call with my phone!”
After that, the rest of the people also started to shout one after another.
“What? I can also get through!”
“Hah-hah, me too. I can also get access to the Internet with my phone. The connection speed is quite good!”
“Finally, the service has resumed!”
Lao Cai’s eyes lit up and he shouted to a crew member who was not far away, “Xiao Ming, recharge 100 Yuan to this number. I have something urgent to discuss with him. He used up his credit when we were talking!”
“OK, Director!” Xiao Ming replied as he started to recharge with his cell phone.
After a short while, he finished, “Director, it’s done!”
“Thank you!” Lao Cai took out a 100 Yuan bill and handed it to Xiao Ming.
Xiao Ming waved his hand and said, “Director, this is not necessary. It is just 100 Yuan!”
Lao Cai repeated, “Just take it!”
Xiao Ming replied, “Director, please don’t look down on me. I have been working for you for a long time. I will never take your money after paying a telephone bill for you!”
“Whatever!” Lao Cai didn’t want to waste his time on Xiao Ming. He picked up his phone to call Xu Que again.
Then he was told the service for Xu Que’s number was still suspended!
“Holy crap! Still suspended! Xiao Ming, was your recharge successful?”
“Ah? It said my operation was finished successfully!”
“Forget it, recharge another 100 Yuan for this number!”
“Well, let me try…. Damn! I still can’t get through. How much does this guy owe his service provider?”
“Don’t worry, Director! I will recharge 1,000 Yuan for him!”
“Hell, no, he should pay his own telephone bill!”
“Heh-heh! Director, I have finished the recharging. Now you can make your phone call!”
“You…” Lao Cai shook his head and dialed Xu Que’s number again.
The next moment, Lao Cai was dumbfounded again. What he heard from his cell phone was still “the service of the subscriber you dialed has been suspended”!
“Crap!” Lao Cai cursed on the spot.
Xiao Ming was also surprised, “Director, what happened? You still can’t get through? Could it be that the payment is delayed?”
Lao Cai couldn’t hold his temper anymore. He waved his hand and shouted, “Damn! Xiao Ming, recharge 10,000 Yuan for his number! If I still can’t get through, I will swallow excrement during a live show!”
