- Streaming Crisis?!
“Hahaha! Seeing you scared, you should learn what you need to do!” Senior Sister pointed beside me at Cheng Zixi.
Isn’t this joke just too much?! You don’t have to joke like this! You demon!
“Senior Sister, please stop joking, okay? We’re seriously practicing!” I shouted at her.
“I know, I know, you’re not messing around. Actually, all you need to do is make it look like you are doing it. If you turn away from the stage and lean in close, it will look like you two are kissing,” Senior Sister said while patting my head. Hey hey hey! Just because I’m short doesn’t mean that you can pat my head. And it’s not because Senior Sister is tall! Then again, I’m only 4’ 10”, and I’m more than a head shorter than Senior Sister. So sad! QAQ
“Oh! It’s past three!” Senior Sister looked at her watch. “Sorry everybody, I forgot to look at the time. Rehearsing for so long, I think everybody’s tired now. Rest for half an hour.” Senior Sister really was a careless person, to even forget…forgetting about exhaustion…
After Senior Sister announced the break, everybody in the classroom came over except for Cheng Zixi and Senior Sister…
“Wow! With a closer look, he’s even cuter! I really want to hug him! (>﹏<)!” “Seriously, really cute!” “Wa! I’m so envious of his soft, white skin!” “Why do I feel like I lost…” Hey hey hey! Look at your image, no, don’t touch! Hey! Big Sis, don’t actually hug me!
“Senior Sister, hurry and help me!” I turned towards the spectating Senior Sister, crying for help.
“Oh yeah, I can’t help you out with that, Little Brother. Some things just depend on your luck!” Senior Sister was taking joy in watching my disaster. Don’t do this! Why can’t you save me! Sigh….it looked like I couldn’t count on this heartless Senior Sister, so I called for help from Cheng Zixi.
“Zixi! Save me!” I shouted out towards Cheng Zixi.
“Ah, sorry Little Yan, I need to go to the bathroom…”
Cheng Zixi, you heartless person, where was the basic trust between us? I thought of you as a brother, why do you treat me like this!
I don’t know how long, I don’t know how many people asked me, and I don’t know how many times girls sexually harassed me. Then finally, we heard Senior Sister’s voice come from the stage.
“Everybody, quiet please. Now that everybody’s rested, we can continue rehearsing.”
Along with Senior Sister’s order, I was finally free! I really don’t know how I survived.
We rehearsed until the evening and finally finished. I wasn’t rushed to return home. Rather, Cheng Zixi and I went off campus to a fast food restaurant nearby. Since I would be late again after eating, we might as well just eat outside….
“Little Yan, I say, how can you eat so much?” Cheng Zixi looked at my table of food and asked.
“Hmph! Well, who told you to be so heartless and just abandon me to leave! Do you know how much I suffered!” I bit into a chicken leg bitterly towards Cheng Zixi, who was sitting across from me.
“But you don’t need five hamburgers?!” Cheng Zixi pointed towards a plate full of hamburgers.
“Don’t be stingy! There aren’t five hamburgers?”
“Although I’m the one treating, you don’t have to waste it?!”
“I’m not wasting it! I can eat all of it!”
“You can? How can I believe that?” Cheng Zixi said with a look of concern, one that he would give to a clumsy loli.
“Hey hey hey! What are you thinking? Why does it look like you’re looking at a clumsy loli?! I’m not a little girl!” I expressed my displeasure towards his gaze.
After ten minutes, the plate was empty and all that was left was Cheng Zixi’s stupid expression. Hmph! You take a look, even before, I could eat a whole potful of rice by myself. How could I not finish this? Truly naive!
We left the fast food restaurant and started walking home.
“Little Yan, how’s your live streaming going?” Cheng Zixi suddenly asked.
“It’s okay, but I don’t remember telling you that I live streamed? How did you find out?”
“Actually I was on a xx live stream and then went to another live stream and the voice was like yours. The way they talked was like you, and it was one of your favorite games. I just recognized you,” Cheng Zixi said confidently.
[TL: Okay before someone thinks that Cheng Zixi was on some R18 stream, the xx is the type of stream i.e. gaming, type of game etc. but there’s no name so I left it as it is in the raws.]
“You figured it all out…”
“Haha, don’t you know how many years we’ve been friends?”
“That’s right, ha!”
I finally got home and Cheng Zixi left. Like always, I went to turn on my computer, turned on the streaming software to enter in my account, and tested my microphone before streaming. However, when I logged in, what I saw shocked me.
I remember yesterday I had 4000 subscribers, but today it had fallen to 3000? This really was abnormal! Just as I wondered what was happening, a comment came into view.
“The other streamers have started to use webcams, but Lao D still hasn’t. Boring, unsubscribe, unsubscribe…” Afterwards there were more comments, sure enough, they all just wanted to see my face…
I turned on my microphone and began to stream.
“Ladies and gentlemen, it’s me, Lao D.” I said into the microphone, “Regarding what everybody has requested, I’m somewhat powerless because of my living expenses, and therefore I cannot satisfy everybody’s request…” Before saying anything else, the comment section exploded. “Isn’t it just a little short of money? Brothers, brush up so that Lao D can buy a webcam tomorrow!” Then a red packet of money was sent to me…
[TL: If you don’t know, red packets are sent to other people for special occasions etc. and they would have money inside. If you want to find out more, just Google it.]
“Thank you everybody, I promise that if nothing bad happens tomorrow, I will buy a webcam for tomorrow’s stream,” I wore a grateful voice and said. I can’t just take the money and run…after all, I still want to stream. However, it isn’t for the money, but to have something to do so I won’t be bored.
Just after I finished speaking, the subscription count flew back up… Apparently, not showing my face would be unavoidable…
