You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 16

7 Comments

Greeting from Macau as I am on vacation 🙂 Jing Jing and Yu Tu were continuing to spend time playing and watching games. Will our student Jing Jing ever beat teacher Yu Tu in a match?

Chapter 16 (translated by peanuts and edited by hoju)

The next day, when she was still half asleep, Qiao Jing Jing received a phone call from big sister Ling. She first told her about Director Li wanting to meet her and then asked, “Did you go to watch a movie yesterday?”

Qiao Jing Jing was startled. “Was I photographed?”

Big sister Ling turned her nose up at her in disdain. “You are nervous and jumpy. Why are you getting panicky from just getting photographed while watching a movie alone?”

“……Oh.”

“I feel that you can date someone. Such a beautiful, grown-up girl, and she went to watch a movie alone on Singles’ Day. Aiya, as your manager, I also feel a little humiliated.”

What kind of logic was this? Had Singles’ Day became Valentine’s Day?

Qiao Jing Jing was still a little surprised. “You’re actually encouraging me to date?”

Big sister Ling scoffed, “The world is different now, not like before. See, even your fans are laughing at you that you’re a single dog (it is an internet slang referring to people who are single. In China, this state is like that of a dog, afraid of being lonely and in need of company). Okay, I’ll hang up but do remember that we’ll be meeting Director Li at three tomorrow afternoon. Prepare yourself well.”

Qiao Jing Jing felt a little helpless. “Director Li hasn’t revealed anything about his movie, only its name. How do I even prepare? I’ve seen all of his previous works.”

After thinking about it, big sister Ling also agreed. “Then that will do. Later, we’ll play it by ear.”

After hanging up the phone, Qiao Jing Jing went to Weibo to search for that photo. It was blurry, but she was still very good-looking in it, so Qiao Jing Jing felt relieved. When she was about to close the photo window, she suddenly seemed to have found something. She zoomed in on the picture.

Sure enough, Yu Tu was actually standing in the corner. In the photo, she was collecting the movie tickets, whereas Yu Tu was looking at her from the corner?

Sure enough, so much like a spy film.

She saved the picture. Then, her train of thought drifted away a little.

Date someone ~~~

It seemed, it was possible? However, at the very least, he must be handsome like Baili Shouyue?

Oh, yes, Qiao Jing Jing’s recent favourite hero had gone from Zhuge Liang to Li Bai, and now it had become Baili Shouyue. It was because that feeling of killing off a low-HP (Health Point) player with just a single snipe felt just too good!

After they finished eating lunch, she and Yu Tu, each playing with four computers as teammates, waged a 5v5 battle against each other in the living room. She used Baili Shouyue.

The result was that she actually managed to snipe Yu Tu a few times.

After a shot killed him, Qiao Jing Jing looked suspiciously at him. “Did you purposely let me kill you?”

“Mm-hmm.”

“……I don’t believe you.”

Yu Tu laughed. “Then why are you asking? When have I ever let you win? If you can’t even get one shot on me, then I’ve truly failed.”

That was true. After all, he had personally, step by step taught her how to play with Shouyue.

Yu Tu really would not ever purposely let her win. In the end, he still won this match. Regarding losing to Yu Tu, Qiao Jing Jing felt nothing towards it anymore, but she still had to find an excuse.

“It must be because the computer teammates that the system gave me aren’t able to operate the line of soldiers.”

Yu Tu felt that the computer had been treated rather unjustly, being made the scapegoat in this. Miss Qiao had lost purely because she had been continuously chasing him to fire at him.

Qiao Jing Jing looked at the time and stood up. “Let’s go and watch the live broadcast. Xia Xue’s live broadcast is about to start.”

Xia Xue was one of the professional players that Qiao Jing Jing was interested in of late.

Recently, she had been watching some competition videos with Yu Tu and had become a fan of several professional players. She had ended up watching all their competitions and interviews once through, and then went on to the Douyu and Chushou platforms to watch their live broadcasts. While she was there, she had also looked over some of the game anchors on the platforms and cried out in admiration over the popularity of those anchors.

“If I hadn’t started my career yet, I could also be an anchor. I’d just sing some songs and play some games and whatnot.”

Yu Tu had no comment on her singing, but “play games?”

Qiao Jing Jing shamelessly said, “I used to be busy acting, so I didn’t really seriously play. If I am a professional anchor, I would certainly have to practice hard, as I cannot only rely on singing?”

She wandered one round through the site and felt that she could even teach makeup, fashion, and yoga. She was truly multi-talented and destined to be popular.

Regarding the professional players that Qiao Jing Jing liked, Yu Tu had once commented, “All of them have pretty good looks.”

Qiao Jing Jing: “…Don’t insult me. It’s mainly that they play well. It just so happens that they also look good.”

The way these two people watched videos was very high class nowadays. They used to watch with the phone or Yu Tu’s computer. One day, Qiao Jing Jing suddenly remembered there was a small home theater in her house, so she immediately set up a new battlefield.

Large-screen projection was much more comfortable than computer and phone. Moreover, they could watch while playing games.

Snowy used Sun Shangxiang today. Qiao Jing Jing recalled that Yu Tu also also played very well using Sun Shangxiang, so she suddenly said, “Actually, you also can go and compete in e-sports. Maybe you’ll be even more popular than them.”

“…E-sports has very high demands on the player’s age. How old do you think these players are?”

“Twenty something?”

“The one you’re watching now, I’ve read up on his info. 18.”

Qiao Jing Jing was shocked. “11 years younger than me?”

Yu Tu suspected that something had happened with her math ability. “Not 12?”

Qiao Jing Jing immediately blew up. “I am only 29 years old! My birthday is next month.”

“Very precise. I calculated it wrong.” The precise and stringent scientific researcher gave recognition to the designer.

After watching the live broadcast for a while, they changed over to watch a few recorded matches, Qiao Jing Jing had grown a little excited from watching, and her heart began to stir. “It seems like there will be a semi-final match in a few days time. How about we go to the venue to watch the match?”

Yu Tu: “…Can you go?”

When they were watching the live broadcast, they could see the competition venue. Actually, it was not very big. The auditorium could only accommodate roughly two to three hundred people. Thus Qiao Jing Jing would be too easily discovered.

Qiao Jing Jing also hesitated. In a flash, she had another idea, and she pointed to the screen and said, “Look, every time before the match starts, the commentator will guess which position will be banned. How about we also guess this in the next match? If we guess all of them correctly, we’ll go.”

The moment she finished talking, she heard a ‘pop’ sound, and the big screen suddenly went dark.

Qiao Jing Jing blinked and looked at her own finger. This was… being destroyed by her pointing finger?

Yu Tu was unable to restrain a smile, “Maybe it’s just the protection against overheating. Let’s play a round of ranked match first. We will switch it on again after a while.”

The result was that after they played a round of ranked match, the projector still could not be turned on.

Yu Tu looked at Qiao Jing Jing. “Last time, when you deceived me to come and fix the purifier, you said you’ve a full toolkit set at home?”

<>Copyright of Fanatical, hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com. If you are not reading this from hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com, this translation was taken without consent of the translator.

Calling it deception really hurt the feelings. Speaking of which, the toolkit had actually been specially prepared in order to “invite” him to come over last time.

Ten minutes later, after asking Xiao Zhu, the toolkit was found. Qiao Jing Jing squatted beside Yu Tu and watched him repair the projector.

“Do you really know how to repair it?”

Yu Tu said modestly. “I’ll try.”

He took the multimeter and some other tools and tested things for a while. “It should be the power board problem.”

“Then we have to change out the board?”

“Too expensive to change, just repair it.”

Qiao Jing Jing was doing a little hero worshiping. “You guys in the aerospace industry even know this.”

“This is very basic. Aerospace is a systematic engineering process that is very diverse and enormous. Thus I’ve to know a bit of all aspects.” Yu Tu casually said, “If I go into welding, I’ll also be a first-class worker.”

Godly student, you are still as narcissistic as when you were in high school ~~~

Qiao Jing Jing watched him bow his head, focused on the testing. She pursed her lips and felt like laughing.

She looked intently at him repairing the machine for a while. The phone suddenly started to ring and Qiao Jing Jing answered it. Big sister Ling’s rapid voice was heard. “Jing Jing, Director Li changed his schedule. He will be returning to Beijing tomorrow, so the meeting has been changed to this afternoon. Why didn’t you reply to my WeChat messages?”

“I didn’t see them. What time?”

“Half past four. I’m already downstairs of your home. The make-up artist and stylist have also arrived. We’ll be coming up right away.”

Qiao Jing Jing was surprised. “I even have to do makeup and style consult?”

Big sister Ling said, “Time is tight. It’ll be a little faster if they help you. Oh, I forgot, is your Teacher Yu there?”

Qiao Jing Jing sighed, “Of course he is here. And you’re bringing a group of people here.”

Big sister Ling: “… You think of a way out yourself, since we are already in the elevator.”

Qiao Jing Jing hung up the phone. Yu Tu thought for a while before saying, “Tell them that I am the electrical appliance repairman?”

Qiao Jing Jing was a bit hesitant. “You’re a little too handsome….”

“Yea.” Yu Tu said, “Then just close the door here when you’re going out.”

There was no other way, because after all, those people were already in the elevator. But Qiao Jing Jing still explained, “The make-up artist and stylist are not considered our studio’s people, so …… in fact, big sister Ling had already wanted to meet you long ago.”

The doorbell rang and Yu Tu said, “Quickly, go.”

Qiao Jing Jing hurriedly walked out, and of course, she did not forget to close the door.

It was getting noisy outside. Yu Tu put his phone in silent mode and went to Taobao to buy several components. The people outside were busy for a while and then Qiao Jing Jing sent a WeChat message to him: “I’m leaving now. Wait for me to come back.”

Yu Tu smiled. “Okay.”
