“Lao Cai is good. I never thought he would be willing to top up more than $20,000 to my phone. Xu Que sat on the roof of the inn, feeling very happy and waiting for the film to be sent. But with the internet speed, it would probably take at least four to five days.
Well, I can’t just sit here waiting and doing nothing. Even if I am fine with this, I don’t think Buttface would be willing to do so.
But soon, Xu Que came up with a good idea and summoned the System. “System, give me ten strong sleeping pills with chocolate flavor. Wait, one more with crap flavor!”
Then he walked close to Buttface and said gently, “Buttface, here, here, eat the chocolate.…”
Buttface, who was still practically in a coma, opened his mouth and swallowed all 11 sleeping pills.
“Crickey! I hope this amount of sleeping pills is not too much for him!”
This strong sleeping pill would even put an elephant to sleep for at least ten days. I guess Buttface will wake up about a year and a half from now after taking this amount of sleeping pills.
“Never mind, at least I won’t be bothered by him for a long time.” Xu Que smiled and put the phone next to Buttface. He set up an Array of Spiritual Level and left.
During the next week, Xu Que lived a very luxurious life in the Imperial Palace. He slept in Madame’s bedroom for a few nights and in Su Yunlan’s as well. From time to time, he also went to flirt with Su Ling’er and brought some chocolate to Su Xiao Qi.
On the eighth day, he thought about the film business and went back to the roof of the inn. Buttface was still sleeping, his saliva drooling all around him. Xu Que was speechless when he saw this and picked up his phone.
He was surprised to find that the phone had lost its connection to the internet. Luckily, the film had been successfully sent to Lao Cai, but because there was no internet, he had not received any messages from Lao Cai.
“What is going on?” Xu Que frowned.
As the film has been sent to Lao Cai, I am supposed to receive his messages, so something must have happened after it was sent. Right! The signal!
Xu Que turned around to see Buttface and saw his feet were still on the cable. Then he looked around and noticed that one of the four Signal Boosters was burned out.
“Holy crap! It can’t be burned out!” Xu Que’s eyes opened wide, he was so shocked. He hurriedly picked up the cable and put it back into the System’s parcel.
“System, can you repair this burned-out Signal Booster?!”
Ding! “After detecting it, the Signal Booster can’t be repaired!” The System answered quickly.
“No, no, no! I have to know how the box office went from my film! I can’t lose connection with Earth. You have to help me!” Xu Que was almost going mad.
However, his request was declined.
Xu Que was really upset. For him, the box office was not that important. The reason why he was so upset was that he had not even had the opportunity to get in touch with his sister.…
“Screw you! I am really pissed off!” Xu Que clenched his fists and looked into the sky.
There are only three ways left: Cultivate harder to get one Big Growth Gift Bag; Kill a cultivator of the Great Vehicle Stage to get a Big Mystery Bag; or I continue to act tough in this world and earn enough Acting Tough Points to upgrade the System into version 10.0. So I can get the Space Breaking Spell and go back to Earth.
But none of them are easy to do.
“It seems that I should not waste time indulging myself here. It’s time to go back to the Four Great Continents.” Xu Que murmured and put away all the Signal Boosters and his phone, and headed to the palace, while carrying Buttface on his shoulder.
Right at the same moment, on Earth…
Lao Cai had just finished the shooting of his own film and received the film Xu Que sent to him. After he watched it, he stayed at home for two whole days.
From the technical perspective, this film sucks, really sucks! It is the worst film I have ever seen! The storyline is bad, the protagonists’ performing skills suck,…still, there are two aspects that I have to give my compliments to. The computer-generated imagery is really fantastic, and the four female protagonists are gorgeous! But it is really a shame for them to participate in the shooting of such a bad film. It’s a shame for the film industry!
Lao Cai was both shocked and excited.
The computer-generated imagery is of such a good quality, as far as I am concerned, no team in this world can make one as good as this one. All the scenes and incantations are just so real!!! The four extremely beautiful women would overshadow all the women in this world. I can’t imagine what would happen once I released this film, the entire film industry would be shaken.
“Anyway, I can’t get in touch with Xu Que. Why not release this film in his name, then no one would verbally attack me or make fun of me if the film is not favored by audiences.” Lao Cai said to himself while copying the film and beginning to edit it. It took him a total of three days to finish editing the film. He worked very hard to change the storyline to make it seem less ridiculous and sent it to the State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television.
Two days later, the film was on the air in cinemas across China and stunned a huge amount of people.
“My god! Who is the producer of this bloody film?”
“The storyline is just terrible!”
“The producer is Xu Que!”
“This producer must be mad, the storyline just sucks, though the computer-generated imagery is awesome! How did he manage to make such a terrible film with such good computer-generated imagery?”
“When I was watching, I really thought I was living in a cultivation world!”
“The storyline is bad, as we all know. But I have to say that the computer-generated imagery is the best in the world!”
“Besides, the actresses are also brilliant!”
“Can anyone tell me who is the actress who played ‘Su Ling’er’ in the film?”
“Who is the actress of Madame Ya? She is quite something. While I was watching the film, I even got sexually excited!”
“How about the actress who plays Su Yunlan, does anyone know who she is?! I also found her extremely exciting.”
“By the way, who is Xu Yanzu?! He is really handsome!”
“From now on, Xu Yanzu is my new idol!”
“Screw you! Xu Yanzu is just a gigolo, and his performing skills suck!”
“There is only one good thing about him, and that is his handsome face!”
All sorts of remarks about this film were circulating on the internet.
Some people felt sorry for the wonderful computer-generated imagery and all those marvelous female actresses, while most of them were trying their best to find out the names of all the actors and actresses.
Xu Que did not look like the same person when he was on Earth, so no matter how much effort people had put in searching Xu Que on the internet, they could not find anything. The name “Xu Que” had impressed many people though. For example, Xu Que’s university classmates, high school classmates, and anyone who knew Xu Que all freaked out.
Since on the day before the film went on air, Xu Que posted a selfie on his WeChat moments. In the selfie, people saw a husky that looked exactly like Buttface in the film. A few days later, Xu Que’s film had a very good box office, leaving many great films behind. All the tycoons in the film industry were shocked.
A film producer, Zhang Ye, said, “Find me the team that made the computer-generated imagery. With their help, I will become Number 1 on the list of Famous People in the World.”
An investor said, “Find me the producer of the film, I would invest in his films!”
At the same time, in cultivation world, Xu Que got a big surprise. In the last few days, he was heading to the Water Nation, together with Madame Ya, Su Yunlan, Su Ling’er, and Su Xiao Qi, to meet Jiang Hongyan.
During the journey, the sound of the notification of the System kept ringing. Thanks to the film, he had received almost 300,000 Acting Tough Points, and soon the amount even doubled and he had earned a total of 600,000 Acting Tough Points.
“Lao Cai must have got my film on air! It seems that I will soon be able to go back to Earth! People of Earth, I will soon come back!”
Half a month later, Xu Que finally arrived at the Water Nation with all his female friends. He had decided to go back to the Four Great Continents as soon as he found Jiang Hongyan. But when he stepped into the Imperial Palace, he could not feel Jiang Hongyan’s existence.
“What has happened?! Where has she gone?” Xu Que murmured and felt a bit worried.
“Xu Que, what’s wrong?!” Madame Ya asked.
“Never mind! We shall go in first.”
Then he went into the rear palaces, together with the rest of them.
Even if Jiang Hongyan is not here, I can feel Zi Xuan is still here, I should ask her what has happened.
As soon as he arrived at the rear palaces, Zi Xuan hurriedly ran up to him and said anxiously, “Xu Que, you should have come back earlier! Something has happened to Hongyan!”
“What?!” Xu Que was stunned and could not believe his ears. “What on earth has happened?!”
Zi Xuan shook her head and said, “I don’t know exactly. Since you left, Hongyan had been cultivating herself. Yesterday, she came to tell me that she had something important to do in the Four Great Continents and asked you not to wait for her return.”
She asks me not to wait for her return? Xu Que was surprised and very worried.
