The Celebrity - Chapter 13

Chapter 13 – The Place That Men Like

Tian Xin sighed and said, “I did not have any opportunity.”

Tian SiSi said, “When you first deliver those clothes to me, why didn't you say it?”

Tian Xin said, “I knew that Mr. Ge was in the room at that time, therefore when young lady asked me whether I was Tian Xin, I did not dare to acknowledge.”

Hearing about “Mr. Ge”, Tian SiSi could not help but shiver.

Tian Xin said, “Afterwards I intentionally sprinkled the tea in the young lady’s clothes to put a bundle of paper inside the young lady's bosom, who knew that you had actually lost it.”

Tian SiSi sighed, “What did I know about it at that time.”

With a forced smile she also said, “Up until now, I still could not figure out why they wanted to harm me?”

Tian Xin pursed her lips and said with a smile, “Others did not really want to harm you, just as long as you marry someone.”

Tian SiSi frowned, “Why do they want to hatch such a complicated plan, actually who is the chief instigator?”

Tian Xin said, “Mr. Ge.”

Tian SiSi could not help shiver some more and said, “He was in cahoots with Zhang Haoer?”

Tian Xin said, “You still do not understand until now?”

Tian SiSi said, “His accupoints had not been sealed by that fake Qin Ge.”

Tian Xin said, “That was certainly an intentional well-staged act in front of you to make you think that that Qin Ge was real.”

She sighed and then said, “Actually even if there had been ten Hua HuDie, Mr. Ge would have been able to kill them all with just two fingers.”

Tian SiSi also sighed, “That person is indeed very fearful.”

Tian Xin said, “As far as I know, his wugong is a lot more fearful than anyone else we have seen.”

She smiled suddenly and said, “But as soon as he saw Master Yang, he seemed to have become a mouse who has met a cat.”

Tian SiSi sank her face and calmly said, “How do you know?”

Tian Xin said, “If not for Master Yang promptly rescuing me, now I am afraid I will not be able to see young lady.”

Tian SiSi said, “That person was trying to kill you?”

Tian Xin nodded and said, “They had already discovered my relation with the young lady.”

Tian SiSi said, “But, how can you arrive here?”

Tian Xin replied, “Madam Wang delivered me here, she had sold me to Zhang Haoer.”

Tian SiSi said, “That day you have not run away?”

Tian Xin shook her head and sighed, “How could I run away from her clutch?”

Immediately Tian SiSi “pfui” smiled and said, “Madam Wang is not Buddha all-knowing, why couldn’t you escape? You are Sun Wukong, aren’t you the always all-resourceful person?”

Having said this, she continued to laugh.

Tian Xin pouted her mouth and said, “What matter has to be so funny?”

Tian SiSi reluctantly smiled and said, “Have you looked who that big-headed ghost looks like?”

Tian Xin was stunned as she said, “Who does he look like? Someone we know?”

Tian SiSi said, “You should know, because you all descended from heaven to earth, one is the marshal, one is the great sage.”

Tian Xin had finally understood, she laughed despite trying not to, “You are saying he looks like the pig (zhubajie)?”

Tian SiSi’s laughed, “Don’t you think so? If you don’t there is something wrong.”

Tian Xin actually shook her head and said, “I don’t see the similarities.”

Tian SiSi said, “He eats and also sleeps a lot, as soon as he saw an attractive woman, the eyes narrowed into a slit immediately, giving a lewd appearance, just like that pig who entered the high village.”

Tian Xin sighed and said, “But if it were not for this pig, the pilgrim monk Tang and Sun Wukong must have died.”

Tian SiSi’s face showed irritation and said, “Why do you always side with him?”

Tian Xin said, “Because I admire him.”

Tian SiSi winked and suddenly said with a smile, “Such being the case, should I marry you to him?”

Tian Xin said, “Fine.”

She showed all happy face without any angst.

Tian SiSi was stunned and said, “You agree?”

Tian Xin said, “Why not?”

Tian SiSi said, “But his head is three times bigger compared to anyone’s, you see that?”

Tian Xin said, “Why should it be a bad thing? A person with a bigger head is certainly more intelligent compared to others.”

Tian SiSi said, “His waist is also thicker than a bucket.”

Tian Xin said, “But his heart is actually thinner than a needle, he is very meticulous and thorough in everything.”

Tian SiSi said, “You do not think he looks like a peculiar clown?”

Tian Xin said, “As long as a man is intelligent and competent, looking like a clown is not a problem, moreover he is not ugly.”

Tian SiSi retorted, “He is not ugly? What kind of person should be called ugly then?”

Tian Xin said, “In my opinion, that Hua HuDie looks worse than a clown, he did not have the spirit of a man.”

She closed her eyes like in a dream, then said, “If you look carefully, his whole body was fine and very pleasing to the eyes, and when he smiles in particular he looks extremely enchanting.”

Tian SiSi stared at her and said bitterly, “Good, since you like him so much, why don’t you just marry him.”

Tian Xin sighed and said, “Unfortunately he doesn’t like me, the person he likes is ......”

She had not completed the sentence when someone interrupted, “The person I like is myself.”

Yang Fan grinningly stood in front of her and while laughing, “Everyone likes himself the most, if he doesn’t do that, he will be condemned by heaven and earth.”

Tian Xin blushed, dangled her head, and did not dare to open her mouth again.

Yang Fan stifled a yawn and said, “We go now.”

Tian SiSi stared at him and said, “Go? Just leave like this?”

Yang Fan said, “Why can’t we just go?”

Tian SiSi said, “Zhang Haoer?”

Yang Fan said, “In her room.”

Tian SiSi said, “Have you really let her go?”

Yang Fan said, “What do you want me to do? Kill her? Hit her butt 300 times?”

Tian SiSi clenched her teeth and said, “You ......You ......You should at least let me vent something!”

Yang Fan said, “What made you angry? Has she ever hit you?”

Tian SiSi said, “No.”

Yang Fan said, “Scolded you?”

Tian SiSi said, “No.”

Yang Fan said, “When you came here, what did she want you to do?”

Tian SiSi said, “She wanted me to take a bath, to change clothes, then ......Then ......”

Yang Fan said, “Then she fed you, introduced you to that ugly man, right?”

Tian SiSi said, “Right, only ......”

Yang Fan said, “Only what? Must vent?”

Tian SiSi said, “Certainly.”

Yang Fan said, “How do you want to vent? Also tell her to take a bath, change clothes, eat, and then introduce an attractive young fellow to her?”

Tian SiSi jumped, stamped the feet and said, “Are you actually helping me? Or helping her?”

Yang Fan smiled and said, “I am not on anyone’s side, I just want someone to be reasonable.”

Tian SiSi said, “You think I am not reasonable? What about her? Why does she want to deceive me? Why does she want me to marry that person?”

Yang Fan said lightly, “Perhaps because you are too attractive, therefore some people want wholeheartedly to marry you. If you had looked like me, no one would have been willing to marry you then.”

Tian SiSi was so angry she screamed, “Who says I am attractive, I am not attractive, can’t you see that they are plotting something?”

Yang Fan said with a smile, “Since when you became so modest? So rare, so rare ......”

He stifled another yawn and said, “I have to go, you want to go with me or not, it is up to you.”

Tian SiSi said loudly, “It is up to me, so why should you bother?”

Yang Fan however walked leisurely forward and said easily, “If you see Mr. Ge, there is really no need to be afraid, at the most he only wants to marry you, he will not eat you.”

He had not completed his words, Tian SiSi had pursued him, breathing heavily she blurted out, “Mr. Ge is also here?”

Yang Fan replied, “How do I know whether he is here or not? Where he is has nothing to do with me.”

Tian SiSi said, “You have just seen him?”

Yang Fan said, “Right.”

Tian SiSi said, “Why don't you apprehend him?”

Yang Fan said, “You had also seen him very often, why didn't you apprehend him?”

Tian SiSi said, “Because I cannot apprehend him.”

Yang Fan said, “Same with me.”

Tian SiSi said, “You are also the same? Is your wugong also inferior to him?”

Yang Fan sighed and said, “I actually do not have such high skills, why do you consider me so high?”

Tian SiSi said, “Didn’t he immediately run when he saw you?”

Yang Fan thoughtfully said, “Perhaps only because I am an honorable gentleman, the evil cannot vanquish good, you probably know it too.”

The night was quiet.

The star light illuminated the road, while the wind brought the fragrance of flowers.

Yang Fan walked in front, and then Tian SiSi followed.

Although this big-headed ghost was hateful, but he was nothing compared to Mr. Ge.

Tian Xin walked nearby, the big eyes always never stopped darting back and forth on them.

Tian SiSi said suddenly, “You ask him, actually where are we going.”

Tian Xin blinked and said, “Why don't you ask him yourself?”

Tian SiSi gave her a malicious stare, but kept her mouth shut.

Tian Xin said suddenly, “Although Zhang Haoer did not tell the whole truth, but she had not deceived you over one matter.”

Tian SiSi said, “What matter?”

Tian Xin said, “Qin Ge have indeed arrived here, I heard them talk about it several days ago.”

Tian SiSi’s eyes shone and said, “Did you hear where he is at?”

Tian Xin shook her head, Yang Fan suddenly had turned his head and said, “If he had truly arrived here, I know a place where we would find him for sure.”

Tian SiSi gave a forced smile and said, “What place?”

Yang Fan said lightly, “Where a single man would like to go, you should know too.”

Three

What place did men like to go to?

Interesting places.

That place did not necessarily have to be a scenic place or a very majestic house, as long as it provided the liquor, good food, attractive women and fair gambling, nine out of ten men would like that.

Any single man would like this place.

This place did not have beautiful scenery, actually it did not have any at all.

This place was located on a city corner on a dead alley.

This house was also not majestic.

In fact, this house should have been torn down ten years ago, it seemed some casual wind could have blown it apart.

The double doors had peeling paint and shut tight, with some piled trash lying nearby.

Tian SiSi was walking to the door when the smell had permeated her nose, frowning she said, “Why do you bring me here?”

Yang Fan said, “Aren’t you looking for Qin Ge?”

Tian SiSi said, “He would come to this kind of damned place?”

Yang Fan smiled, “He will certainly come, moreover he won’t go from here so easily.”

Tian SiSi said, “Why?”

Yang Fan said with a smile, “You will gradually know why.”

Tian SiSi suddenly stopped her footsteps and said, “This place also has a lot ......a lot of people who are fond of philanthropist such as Zhang Haoer?”

Yang Fan shook his head and said, “People who come to this place is not looking for philanthropists.”

Tian SiSi said, “Who then?”

Yang Fan said, “People who come to this place, they all like being the philanthropists themselves.”

Tian SiSi blinked and said, “I do not understand what you are saying.”

Yang Fan said, “I am saying that these people like to deliver their own money to provide relief for other people, moreover they deliver it very quickly.”

Tian SiSi suddenly said, “Quickly?”

Yang Fan said, “If you want to deliver your own money, there is no other place where you can deliver it quicker compared to here.”

Tian SiSi suddenly said, “I understand now, this place must be a very big gambling establishment.”

Yang Fan said with a smile, “Good, you are quite intelligent.”

Tian SiSi pouted her mouth, calmly said, “Looking at this tattered house, the person who comes here must be small fries.”

Yang Fan said, “You don’t understand, a person who truly likes to gamble doesn’t care about anything else as long as the place provides the gambling, even if he were to bet in the sewer it would be no problem.”

Tian SiSi said, “Since they can bet anywhere, why do they have to come here?”

Yang Fan said, “Because this place is secret.”

Tian SiSi said, “Why does it have to be so secret?”

Yang Fan said, “There are many reasons.”

Tian SiSi said, “You name them.”

Yang Fan said, “Some people are afraid of their wifes, so they do not dare to bet openly. Some people have specific positions, they cannot bet otherwise. Also there are questionable people who if they bet openly will cause people to suspect.”

He smiled, “But here, there is no problem to bet, no one is out here to catch you, no one will question where your money comes from.”

Tian SiSi said, “Why?”

Yang Fan said, “Because the master here is the golden beard (Jin the bearded person).”

Tian SiSi said, “Who is the golden beard?”

Yang Fan said, “He is a person who is untouchable.”

Tian SiSi said, “Qin Ge does not have a wife to be afraid of, also does not have shameful reasons, why does he still come here to bet?”

Yang Fan said, “Because you can bet a lot in this place, which will satisfy a craving. A small fry won’t be allowed in.”

Tian SiSi cast a glance at him and said, “How about you?......You cannot enter here?”

Yang Fan smiled, “If I cannot enter, why should I bring you here!”

Tian SiSi said, “I did not realize that not only you are a drunkard, but also a compulsive gambler.”

Yang Fan said with a smile, “You should already know that.”

Yang Fan had knocked on the door using the copper collar, the door opened.

A person's face extended from behind the door.

An ominous face who seemed to get angry every three minutes or so.

Not only this person’s appearance was ominous, the voice was also very ominous, staring at Yang Fan he said, “What are you doing?”

Yang Fan said, “You do not know me?”

This person, “Who knows you?”

Yang Fan smiled and said, “The golden beard knows me.”

He put something in the person’s hand and said, “You show this to him, he will know who I am.”

After giving him a malicious stare, he banged the door closed.

Tian SiSi could not bear asking, “The golden beard really knows you?”

Yang Fan said with a smile, “I am not a philanthropist, I cannot deceive you.”

Tian SiSi said, “How do you know this kind of person?”

Yang Fan said lightly, “Because I am a compulsive gambler, and also a drunkard.”
