Upon receiving so much information in such quick succession, Gu Wei shook so badly that the sunflower seeds in his hand scattered on the floor.
"Look how shaken up you are," Luo Chenxuan said. "Just leave it, I'll clean it up for you later."
Gu Wei stared on the three messages looking back at him from his phone. After hesitating for a moment, he opened the one from Chi Yunkai first.
[If You Love Me Please Send Me Money]: Mooncake, are you saying that… the little kid never added me?
[Yunkai Sees Mooncakes]: Yeah, I don't think so. His avatar is a picture of a cactus. I can't remember his name, let me think…
[Yunkai Sees Mooncakes]: Ah, that's right. It was 'The Past is Forever Gone'.
[Yunkai Sees Mooncakes]: [id card]
[If You Love Me Please Send Me Money]: ……
Gu Wei was stupefied.
He was a good-tempered person by nature, and even now he could hardly figure out how to express his anger.
This cactus was what Chi Yunkai considered a childish avatar?
Where the hell did Chi Yunkai find some little kid with this kind of old-fashioned sensibility?
The Past is Forever Gone. Childish? For fuck's sake.
When Gu Wei clicked on the ID card that brought him to this kid's page, he even saw a signature with some poetic nonsense about the Yangtze River.
Seriously. Where did Chi Yunkai find a kid like this?
Maybe this business wasn't all that wild. The wild one was their own group's rapper, Chi Yunkai.
Gu Wei rubbed his eyes and thought about all this new information some more.
Now, the question was…
The cactus never contacted him. But the pikachu did. And they had even had a nice, long chat.
Question: Who the hell was Pikachu?
Who did he spend a whole night advertising their business to? Who had he called 'sweetie' and 'darling'?
A faintly foreboding premonition was starting to creep into his mind.

[If You Love Me Please Send Me Money]: Dad, send me that marriage candidate's WeChat card. I want to take a look.
[Gu Cai]: Oh?
[Gu Cai]: Let me ask Auntie Song.
[Gu Cai]: [id card]
Gu Wei, once again, was rendered speechless.
On the card his father sent him was an avatar featuring a bright and sparkly pikachu. Next to it, in big letters: 100K Volts.
Gu Wei was starting to think that he wasn't very far away from taking his last breath.
If the person who added him wasn't that little kid, but was instead this random marriage candidate that his father had conjured out of thin air, then… what exactly did he and Gu Wei have a conversation about that night? They must have been like a chicken talking to a duck.
Gu Wei wanted to cry, but he was so shocked that the tears didn't come.
[If You Love Me Please Send Me Money]: Didn't I tell you to call it off.
[Gu Cai]: When did you say that?
Apparently the old drunkard didn't remember that part of their phone call.
[If You Love Me Please Send Me Money]: Forget it. Just tell me his name.
Gu Wei decided it would be best to quickly apologize to Pikachu.
[Gu Cai]: Hehe, I remember it this time.
[Gu Cai]: His name is Jiang Xun. The one that won that world championship of something or the other, that Jiang Xun. You young people should all know about him, right? It seems young people all like him.
[Gu Cai]: What's the matter with you? You don't even know his name and you became a trending topic with him? I just heard about that from Auntie Song.
[Gu Cai]: So, what do you think? Jiang Xun is a pretty good choice, right?
[Gu Cai]: Hello? Where'd you go?
[Gu Cai]: This son of mine… how can you disappear in the middle of a conversation?
Gu Wei was beyond speechless.
What the hell?
The one he'd called 'darling'... was Jiang Xun?
