As promised, SSB is up and running now during Lantern Festival in the West lol. The new address is https://www.shushengbar.net/, don’t go to the wrong site 😛 A big thank you to Amy for doing all the hard work. Also, give me some time to update and catch up since the bar is more than half a year behind 😦

Happy Lantern Festival to those who celebrate. You asked for it. There is Jing Jing in this chapter but no Yu Tu 😦 Instead there is Su Ye, Jing Jing’s ex-boyfriend. Haha, why the two people Jing Jing and Yu Tu dated are so full of themselves? I guess you’ve to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince 😛

I didn’t realize until WordPress.com wished Fanatical Happy 6th Anniversary today. OMG, how time flies that my beloved blog is already in kindergarten lol. As for Shushengbar, I’ve found a hosting company and set it up. Unfortunately it didn’t work so I’ve asked the hosting company for help to fix it so we are not there yet but not far from it 🙂


Chapter 33 (translated by peanuts and edited by hoju)

Qiao Jing Jing had been extremely busy in these two months.

Facts proved that, as a celebrity, being willful and resting for more than a month indeed will have consequences. This was because the earlier deferred work did not disappear while her current work also had to be completed. In addition, there were all kinds of end-of-the-year awards ceremony and events, the film she had shot last year about food had been moved up in schedule and promotional work was starting up ahead of time…

The various feelings of this lifestyle were really too beautiful to describe.

One day, Qiao Jing Jing returned again to the hotel at three in the morning . Before she fall headlong into bed and fall asleep, she suddenly thought of Yu Tu. In extreme tiredness, she hazily thought, even if Yu Tu that time had agreed to be with her, with her being so busy now, he probably would still want break up?

While she was thinking this, she, surprisingly, couldn’t help laughing.

The next day, when she was brushing her teeth and recalling this thought, Qiao Jing Jing felt that she probably had already started to forget.

So fast.

But at this age, in this industry, perhaps this kind of speed was the norm.

A few days before Chinese New Year, Qiao Jing Jing participated in an event in Beijing. She ran into Su Ye at the cocktail party after the event.

She didn’t see him at first, but Su Ye was the kind of person who exuded an aura that attracted everyone’s attention. As Qiao Jing Jing inadvertently glanced at that lively spot in the middle of the cocktail party, she happened to meet his eyes.

Then he walked up to her and handed her a glass of colorful cocktail.

“The flavour mix is pretty nice. Give it a try.”

Under the watchful eyes of everyone around, Qiao Jing Jing politely took it. “Thank you.”

The person who had been chatting with her left with a meaningful smile. Su Ye looked at her, his eyes intense. “Long time no see. How have you been lately?”

Qiao Jing Jing gave her official polite reply: “Not bad.”

“I thought that would be the case. As soon as I turn on all kinds of social media, I’ll see your news.”

Qiao Jing Jing frowned: “Not to such an extent.”

Overexposure will easily make people become fed up and is not considered a good thing for an actress. Her team always kept control on this.

“Oh, maybe it’s because I click on news about you too often, so the software will automatically push them to me.”

Qiao Jing Jing’s eyelashes fluttered and then she smiled. “Then, thank you for giving me so many clicks.”

The attention on them was becoming more and more. Qiao Jing Jing was thinking of leaving after a few more words, but Su Ye did not seem to have any intention of ending the conversation. He took a sip of wine, then unexpectedly asked, “So, the one I saw in your house that day is actually your senior high school classmate?”

Qiao Jing Jing: “…….You pay attention to online gossip too?”

“Didn’t I just tell you? I clicked too many times. Anyway this one actually was not because of that.” Su Ye chuckled. “I was there that day at the KPL exhibition match that you were in.”

With Qiao Jing Jing’s surprise gaze on him, he added, “The VIP lounge upstairs.”

“Oh, that’s the reason.” After the brief surprise passed, Qiao Jing Jing skated over the topic with a sentence, not intending on asking why he would be there. She vaguely remembered that when she first used her WeChat account to play games, Su Ye seemed to be in the list of game friends… She would just treat it as if he was interested in the game and that was why he went.

Su Ye, with one hand in his pocket, looked graceful. “He games very well. A talented student from Tsinghua. A man like him must also have been very attractive in high school?”

Qiao Jing Jing: “……”

She was a bit suspicious; did Su Ye think that back then he was a fallback guy?

Sure enough, he asked in the next sentence, “So, is he one of the reasons why you broke up with me so easily?”

Qiao Jing Jing: “…It’s really surprising that Chief Su is so lacking in confidence.”

Su Ye looked deeply into her eyes. “Because when you looked at me, there was never that kind of gaze.”

What kind of gaze?

Qiao Jing Jing let her eyes meet his for a moment. She then bowed her head and took a sip of wine, suddenly finding this ridiculous.

When she was together with Su Ye, she had already joined the entertainment industry for several years. The work was busy and the interpersonal relationships were varied and complicated. The emotion of the era of her youth had long faded to become memories. Her choice to be with Su Ye of course come out of sincerity. And their break up also had nothing to do with Yu… other people.

However, now, there was no need to explain to him either. He could think what he wanted. They hadn’t agreed to remain friends after their breakup anyway, so she did not need concern herself with his emotional health.

“I don’t think there is any need anymore to discuss these things.” Qiao Jing Jing raise her glass at him.

“Yes.” Su Ye agreed like a gentleman, “People should always look ahead.”

Qiao Jing Jing had no intention of thinking over the deep meaning of his words. She felt that they had chatted enough, so she wanted to leave. Coincidentally, a young lady came to exchange conventional greetings with Su Ye, so she took the opportunity to take her leave: “I’m going to look for a friend to chat. Chief Su, feel free to do as you please.”

Unexpectedly, Su Ye said, “Wait a moment, there is one more thing.”

With that, it was not appropriate for Qiao Jing Jing to leave. The guest’s expression also looked a little awkward. Only Su Ye was still graceful and calm as he exchanged a few words with her.

After she left, Su Ye turned to Qiao Jing Jing once again.

“There is something that I haven’t been able to find the right opportunity to say to you.”

“What?” Qiao Jing Jing was indifferent. She saw an acquaintance appear at the doorway of the venue, raise a hand, and wave to her.

“Actually, I went to your house that day to apologize to you.”

Qiao Jing Jing was surprised and focused her attention on him once again.

Su Ye said with a normal, easy tone, “The video of you playing games was leaked by my ex-girlfriend. Of course, as a result, she has already become an ex-girlfriend.”

Qiao Jing Jing: “……”

This time her face was really covered with a look of “What the heck?” After inferring the entire cause and effects, Qiao Jing Jing felt this was somewhat inconceivable. “You are in my WeChat friends list… So both of you watched me play game and then even recorded it and posted it online?”

Su Ye looked intently at her. “Not both of us, only I watched. I played the game for a while. I just happened to see you playing and found it very amusing, so I saved it. I don’t know how she found it, even posted it online after making a copy of the recording …..I was not careful, I’m sorry.”

Qiao Jing Jing simply had nothing to say, “With status like yours, Chief Su, why is your mobile phone not password protected?”

Su Ye’s face had a lofty, apologetic look. “My fault. I am careful about everything, but this was one oversight. I was careless.”

“…I should have added you to my blacklist earlier. But is your girlfriend feeling very sad now?” Qiao Jing jing raised her eyebrows slightly. “Make sure you help me to tell her, thanks to her undeserved kindness, my game endorsement fee has tripled.”

“Ex-girlfriend.” Su Ye smiled. “I am single now.”

He looked at her, and there seemed to be infinite meaning in his eyes. “You did very well and made me sit up and take notice.”

“I’ve always wanted to find an opportunity to apologize to you. But I have been abroad for work for the past two months and just returned home this morning. I heard that you would be attending this event, so I came over immediately.” Saying that, he paused for a while. “I don’t know if you have time in these next couple of days, to let me express my apology again.”

“That’s not necessary. It’s already resolved anyway.” It is not possible to pursue and assign fault and responsibility in this kind of matter can’t be pursued, and it is also meaningless to pursue it. Qiao Jing Jing recorded into her mind, but on her face, she simply showed magnanimity.

“Chief Su, simply protect your mobile phone well in the future, and that will be good enough.” She couldn’t help but jab him with a sentence.

Su Ye appeared as if he had not expected she would decline, and he raised his eyebrows slightly.

“If Chief Su has no other matter, I will take my leave.”

“There is.”

Qiao Jing Jing: “……”

She was merely being socially polite!

“I still want to ask you another question.”

Qiao Jing Jing looked at him.

“On the stage that day, you said you are still single on the stage. Is it true?”

He lifted his glass to his lips and took a sip, the corner of his mouth curved in a smile. His handsome features were full of confidence. “If it is true, is Miss Qiao interested in starting a new love relationship? Of course, it would be with an old acquaintance.”

<>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.

“I have a question.”

After remaining silent for a while, Qiao Jing Jing said.

“Ask away.” Su Ye was suave and gentlemanly.

“Did you really feel apologetic to me that your girlfriend put my video online? Why do I feel that, on the contrary, you are a little pleased? Pleased that, for you, someone got jealous to this degree over a love rival?” Qiao Jing Jing gently swayed the colored liquid in the cocktail glass “Oh, maybe it can’t be called ‘pleased.’ You were just very interested to stand as a bystander and watch how I coped?”

“You said you went to see me that day to apologize, but at that time, half a month had already passed since the incident happened? Thus, you probably just happened to pass by and was in the mood, so you conveniently came to apologize?”

“Also, I did win the exhibition match. But what if I had lost? If I had lost very badly? If I was ridiculed by all those online, would you still be standing here today and saying these words to me?”

Qiao Jing Jing’s bright eyes were staring intently at him.

Su Ye was immediately at a loss for words.

What Qiao Jing Jing said was true. That day that he went to her home, he had indeed done it on a whim as he was passing by. Even going to the venue to watch the exhibition match had been done on a spur of the moment. Through the entire matter, as it unfolded, he indeed had kept a kind of bystander mentality, watching to see how she would respond.

However, he had not expect Qiao Jing Jing to resolve everything so beautifully.

In the VIP lounge that day, he had watched how, on the stage, she had wittily and craftily controlled the rhythm of everything, watched her during the match nimbly position herself and skillful control her play. To his surprise, he had totally been unable to take his eyes off her.

He knew clearly that she did not know how to play at all. In less than two months, she had actually improved so much?

By the time she obtained three consecutive kills at the end and the audience burst out with cries of astonishment, he too had been unable to restrain his emotions and had stood up, surprising the staff member who was accompanying him.

That moment, she had hugged and celebrated on the stage with another man, her smile like a blossom, while he, in the VIP lounge, had looked on from a distance, his chest palpitating. It seemed that a fire had rekindled in his heart, burning even more fiercely than before. He thought it simply a ripple in his emotions that was brought on by the atmosphere of the venue that day. However, after going abroad for two months, not only it did that ripple not calm, it became more and more turbulent.

If that was the case, there was no need to restrain himself.

He had always been proactive.

However, he had not anticipated that Qiao Jing Jing would be so sharp as to actually guess his mentality so accurately. Even though Su Ye had always played the game well, able to manipulate things, and was eloquent in words, he still momentarily did not know what to say to recover from this.

Qiao Jing Jing got her answer from his expression.

“I’ll answer your question from before. When I was together with you, I was very serious, and therefore our breakup had nothing to do with other people. The reason for it, have you forgotten?”

“Actually, I have always been very curious.” Qiao Jing Jing tilted her head cutely. “When you suggested that I give up my career, were you really ready to spend a lifetime with me? No, right? But you had still mentioned it so lightly. At that time, I had already realized  that you never put me at an equal position with you, and it seems that nothing has changed now.”

“You always act so high and mighty.” Qiao Jing Jing smiled sweetly and said, “I can’t stand it. Mr. Su, we’re two persons who walk different paths, so we cannot make plans together.”

The news in this circle has always spread very fast. Qiao Jing Jing flew back to Shanghai three days later, and it was already ten o’clock at night when she arrived home. Big sister Ling was actually waiting eagerly for her in the lobby downstairs of her house.

When she saw her getting out of the car, the first sentence was “Su Ye came to disturb you again?”

Qiao Jing Jing: “……”

Spreading at the speed of light?

Speechless, she walked inside, and big sister Ling kept pace with her. “You better not be deceived by his graceful words and flowery speech. That person….Anyway, he is not even one ten-thousandth as good as teacher Yu.”

Speaking of Yu Tu, big sister Ling remembered something. “Hey, Jing Jing, have you still been keeping in contact with teacher Yu recently? Why didn’t he come to the celebratory hotpot that day?”

Qiao Jing Jing looked very calm. “You’ve been holding my mobile phone most of the time. Did you see any contact between us?”

Big sister Ling thought about it. “That is true. You almost don’t have time to sleep.”

Qiao Jing Jing, as peaceful as still water, pressed the elevator button, feeling that her acting skills in real life were like that of a movie queen. It had been more than two months since that night, but  no one around her had noticed any peculiarity in her. Even the driver who drove the car that day didn’t know what happened.

Probably because her reaction was too calm.

“Then, in these next two days when you’re free, you should treat him to a meal. How could you get such good results without him teaching you? But today is already the twenty-ninth day of the last lunar month. He probably has gone back to celebrate the Chinese New Year. So wait until after the New Year?” While still talking, she clapped her hands. “Oh, both of you are from the same hometown! You can treat him in your hometown! You’re going back on Chinese New Year’s Day, right, after you’ve finished performing your program?”

Qiao Jing Jing interrupted her, “You waited for me into the middle of the night just to say this?”

Big sister Ling was forced to find a proper business excuse. “No, I want to go through the details of Shanghai Dragon TV’s New Year’s Gala with you.”

This excuse was too insincere.

The elevator arrived. When Qiao Jing Jing stepped in and turned around, she realized that Xiao Zhu, who had been following her, was missing.

She pressed the door open button. “Where is she?”

At this moment, Xiao Zhu dashed over holding a pile of letters. “I went to open the mailbox. There are quite a lot of letters.”

Qiao Jing Jing did not ask further. Mail that came here generally were only some bank statements and such, and she never concerned herself with these trivial matters.

As the elevator was going up, big Ling sister started to complain endlessly about Su Ye. Xiao Zhu, flipping the letters, however, suddenly said, “Eh?” and exclaimed, “Jing Jing.”

She said with surprise, “Someone actually wrote to you, what’s more, there are quite a few letters.”

Qiao Jing Jing looked absent-mindedly at the letters in her hand. In the next second, her gaze suddenly froze.

The elevator made a ding sound to indicate the arrival at her floor. However she did not move and only reached out to pick up the letter on the very top.

She had actually not seen the clean, free and fluid handwriting on the envelope for a long time already, but she could still recognize it in just a glance.

To Miss Qiao.

And the name signed, sure enough, was——Yu.

  1. Hi Peanut, thank you for the update. When I first read this story here, I was gushing over how fluffy it was and how QJJ’s rekindled feelings for YT made my heart fluttered. Having caught up to the raws before the 7 chapters of epilogues came out, I was left a little unsatisfied at how subdued the latter chapters were (even though Gu Man warned us beforehand!)
    Now, rereading your translation of it, rather than being subdued, I’m able to better appreciate the quiet, contemplative beauty of their relationship development that really tugs at heartstrings.

  2. Gracias, estaba esperando este capitulo

  3. Hi Peanut….

    Thanks you for the chapter… I do enjoy it. And Happy 6th Anniversary, wishing you the happiest time in Kindergarten… LoL!

  4. She got his letter yay..thank you Peanuts and “Happy 6th Anniversary” thank you for always shared beautiful story😆😆…

  5. Ah! The letters have arrived. Ma heart is trembling with excitement only to wait for the development in the next chapter. Since she’s really good actress, I can’t wait to see when she lets her mask fall in front of YT? to the reader above who mentioned of the ending being subdued, thank you for the warning…I think? I just finished another novel by Mo Bao Fei Bao whose ending was also quite subdued and it left me wishing to know if there’s an epilogue.
    Peanuts, thank you so much for the hard work.

  6. Damn, how can Gu Man write such great(in term of expression) ex-lovers. Even without experience, I can relate well with Yu Tu and Jing Jing’s ex-lovers. They potray emotions that are very common in relationship this day.

  7. Thank you for another chapter! Love how she handled the situation with her ex. That guy is such a scum bag.
    & My heart skipped a beat when she realized who the letters were from. Wonder how it felt to be in her shoes. Probably 10x more exciting! =)
