As a fox who didn’t like “little white-eyed wolf” genetically, Li Zhibai, who was forcibly stuffed with a mouthful of dog food, left angrily not long after. However, Yin Heng didn’t stay long, because Bai Xinyan was going to record the show the next day. Even if it wasn’t necessary, Yin Heng still made him go to bed earlier.
Because there were traffic peanuts like Li Zhibai and Ai Qiao, they could earn a lot of income by doing one activity in one day. The appearance fee was very high, so the program group was also very tight when arranging the schedule. They started recording the next morning. The special guests of the next two episodes came over by plane early in the morning, which showed that the schedule was tight.
The special invitations of these two episodes weren’t as powerful as Jian Han, but he was also a second-tier niche youngster with a good personality. He had also been popular for a while and had received several very good resources. It was a pity that the follow-up performance wasn’t very good and it had become a little tepid now. But even so, he had quite a lot of business activities, so he could only arrive on the same day.
After the director let the new guest named Lin Shao (林绍) get to know a few others, he announced the theme of the third issue. This time they were going to experience the profession of forest ranger.
M City was a border city, but could also be called a forest city, with very rich and precious forest resources. A forest ranger was a person who regularly patrolled the forest, observed the situation, and eliminated hidden dangers. Although it wasn’t necessary to patrol the mountains every day, there was no doubt that the forest ranger was quite a hard job. Mountain roads without artificial construction weren’t easy to walk. It wasn’t only tiring but also potentially dangerous. In addition to accidentally falling, slipping, and being injured, you might also encounter wild animals.
“Although it’s rare to see them now, there are really bears and tigers in the forests of M City.” The director said the general situation and deliberately threatened them.
“Is there a tiger?” The director’s clumsy intimidation didn’t scare the others, but Li Zhibai reacted in a panic to save face, and once again completely collapsed his personal setup.
The senior forest ranger who was invited by the program group to guide them immediately smiled and said, “They do appear occasionally, but they have a large territory and rarely come here. Moreover, you don’t have to go to a particularly deep place. It’s estimated that you don’t have the luck to encounter bears or tigers.”
Li Zhibai calmed down a bit after hearing the words, but he was still a little scared. Forget the dog in the first issue, he could barely endure it, but the tiger was almost his death point. Even if he was a demon, he was still afraid of ordinary tigers, and even he was unwilling to watch tigers on TV…
Li Zhibai, who felt that it wasn’t good, was immediately apprehensive about the recording of this episode so that when he was in the group, he strongly requested to join Bai Xinyan again.
This time, there were also two forest rangers who came to guide them. The guests were divided into two groups, each led by a forest ranger in different directions. Then the third day was to try to let the guests go on tour alone. Of course, if it was said to be alone, in fact, everyone would be accompanied by several staff members to ensure the shooting and if there was an emergency.
This time, there were four men and two women. The fair distribution was naturally two men and one woman in each group. In order to prevent the women from being assigned to one group, the director only allowed a few male guests to draw lots. Of course, because they promised not to let Tang Yuying and Li Zhibai be in the same group, saying that it was a lottery, the program group still did some tricks. Moreover, Li Zhibai and Bai Xinyan often got together in the first two episodes. This time, the director wanted to separate them once. Otherwise, even if you wanted to push CP, it seemed too deliberate which was a little more relaxed and easier to poke fans.
So the final result was Bai Xinyan, Gu Chenghao, Tang Yuying, and the rest Li Zhibai, Ai Qiao, and Lin Shao. Looking at it this way, it was obvious that the latter group would be much higher in popularity. In fact, if it weren’t for the fact that Li Zhibai and Tang Yuying couldn’t be in the same group, it would be better to replace Ai Qiao and Tang Yuying. But now this distribution wasn’t bad, the director thought that no one should have an opinion.
Then Li Zhibai expressed his opinion in the next moment. He wanted to exchange Bai Xinyan.
“I don’t feel reassured if Xiao Bai isn’t with me.” Li Zhibai said to the director.
Everyone was surprised when they heard this. Tang Yuying’s face became even more ugly and glared at Bai Xinyan. Only Bai Xinyan felt a black line on his face, thinking that Li Zhibai was obviously afraid of the tiger and seeking him for protection, but he said this as if he was worried about him.
The director guessed that Li Zhibai and Bai Xinyan might want to fry CP, but they didn’t need to stick so tightly to fry CP, right? When things reached the extremes, they would be the opposite. Now it was obviously better to separate the two groups. Li Zhibai’s agent would definitely not understand this.
Could it be that he was… getting it for real?
The director couldn’t help thinking about it for a while, but he still understood that it was impossible and didn’t plan to follow Li Zhibai’s wishes. However, Li Zhibai insisted very much. Seeing that the director didn’t agree to replace Bai Xinyan, he simply ignored Tang Yuying and changed to want to replace himself.
Seeing that Li Zhibai’s idol burden was almost completely lost, he had to team up with Bai Xinyan. There were a lot of stances that the director wouldn’t leave if he didn’t agree. Everyone’s expressions became more and more strange. They couldn’t help but look at Bai Xinyan several times with meaningful eyes.
Seeing this, Bai Xinyan felt that a cauldron had fallen from the sky and was very innocent. Looking at the director, it seemed that he was still not ready to let go, so he simply dismantled Li Zhibai’s real purpose, “Director, he is afraid of encountering tigers, so he can rest assured if he’s with me. Otherwise, to the extent that he is afraid of tigers, I guess this episode won’t be able to shoot well.”
When the director first heard Bai Xinyan’s words, he thought he was joking. However, when he looked at Li Zhibai again, it turned out to be an expression of being betrayed guilty conscience that was exposed. The next moment he gritted his teeth and admitted it then insisted on teaming up with Bai Xinyan and used the excuse of not affecting the shooting of the show.
“……” The director and the others were stunned for a while. The forest ranger couldn’t help but emphasize again, “Actually, it’s almost impossible for us to encounter the tiger. You don’t need to be…”
Before the word “afraid” was uttered, Li Zhibai had already shown how frightened he was. With obvious fear on his face, he said without hesitation, “What if I encounter that slightest chance?”
In the end, the director couldn’t, so he changed the group for Li Zhibai. After all, depending on his appearance, if he didn’t agree, it would really affect the shooting of the show. And the point of being afraid of tigers was also very explosive, so he wouldn’t be afraid of being with Bai Xinyan, he guessed it would poke the cute point for CP fans. Therefore, he let them get together for another episode.
So in the end, Bai Xinyan, Li Zhibai, and Tang Yuying formed a group. When the forest ranger took them to the forest, he couldn’t help but repeat that they would never encounter a tiger.
“I’ve been working for so many years, but I haven’t seen it once. Usually, the cameras that are specially installed in the forest occasionally take pictures.” The forest ranger said, “I’ll take you to the deeper place, you’ll know that there are no tigers. In fact, there aren’t many larger wild animals now. They are very clever and will hide from people.”
The forest ranger took them, explaining the work content and precautions while introducing the plants and animals they encountered from time to time.
It was really hard to walk in the mountain forest without roads, but for the two demons Bai Xinyan and Li Zhibai, of course, it was easy to walk for an hour or two. But Tang Yuying couldn’t do it. Although she was wearing well-fitting sports shoes, she was tired after walking for a long time. She asked others to stop and wait for her to rest. Without saying anything, she sprained her foot.
The accompanying staff immediately dealt with her, but Tang Yuying obviously couldn’t walk by herself for a while.
This episode of the show would have to be recorded for two or three days. As a result, she sprained her foot at the beginning and didn’t know if she could continue to participate in the later filming.
The director’s face suddenly turned ugly after learning about it, but it wasn’t easy to be angry with the injured person, so he could only ask someone to send her down. Unexpectedly, Tang Yuying really had no EQ at all. She was unwilling to temporarily give up today’s filming and go down the mountain, but she couldn’t go down the mountain, so she hoped that Li Zhibai would carry her.
For a while, the eyes of everyone present looked at Tang Yuying and couldn’t say a word.
The mountain road was already difficult to walk, but she was embarrassed to expect Li Zhibai to continue recording the show while she was behind his back. How big of a face and how thick-skinned was this to say that?
Many people in the program group had already fallen to the bottom in their impression of her. The forest ranger, who had just met, originally saw that Tang Yuying was young, sweet, and lovely, felt distressed that the little girl had a sprained foot. At this time, he couldn’t help but feel that this person was so ignorant.
Tang Yuying was sent down the mountain after that, so Bai Xinyan and Li Zhibai felt more comfortable afterwards.
“Your Majesty called me to patrol the mountains~” Bai Xinyan’s family lived in the deep mountain. He was familiar with “patrol the mountain” and hadn’t felt the fresh air in the mountain for a long time since he left his hometown. Now when he had a chance, he couldn’t help but slowly spread his joy, humming messy tunes and running around the forest vigorously. (“大王叫我来巡山咯~”, the song probably refers to this song)
Although Li Zhibai was a demon, he didn’t grow up in the forest. His energy wasn’t as good as Bai Xinyan’s. Although he wasn’t tired, he wasn’t interested in running around like Bai Xinyan. The focus was on watching out for a tiger that might appear in the slightest.
Bai Xinyan’s running and bouncing look were lively and cute, just like a small animal that really lived in the forest. It didn’t destroy the natural atmosphere of the forest in the camera but had a strange sense of harmony. People couldn’t help showing a comfortable smile. Coupled with some interesting little details and interactions, the director’s mood that was destroyed by Tang Yuying had been restored. He had a hunch that the effect of this cut-out and broadcast must be very good!
The work of the forest rangers was very hard, so they had to stay in the mountain all day to record the program, and only eat some dry food at noon.
In the afternoon, they had entered a deeper part of the forest. However, after such a few hours of peace and safety, Li Zhibai’s nervous tension due to his fear of tigers gradually relaxed. Seeing that the sun began to set in the west, they were about to go down the mountain, Li Zhibai was almost no longer worried.
However, the world made people, and at this moment, a faint roar suddenly came from a distance. (然而世事弄人, not sure but I guess it’s something to do with “fortune tricked people” or “a quirk of fate”?)
The voice wasn’t real. The others were still wondering, but Li Zhibai’s face turned pale with a “swoosh”. With his keen sense of fear of a specific race, Li Zhibai already knew what it was.
You, you said that it was impossible to meet a tiger!? QAQ
