Chapter 8: Heavyweight Recommendation
Translated by Addis of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
After the live broadcast, Gu YuMian felt a bit dreamy.
——The viewer rate was so high that he didn’t expect it.
“We really have money,” Gu YuMian said, holding the snow leopard on the balcony to bask in the moonlight, and began to fantasize. “TuanTuan, I will change my house and have a special entertainment room for you. We will have two chefs. We need the best in everything.”
Gu YuMian really wanted to change his house. The snow leopard was full of energy and needed enough space for activities. But he didn’t see any amusement facilities and areas outside, even a park, which made him very worried. As a zookeeper, Gu YuMian really had no ambitions. As long as his cubs grew up healthy and happy, it was his greatest satisfaction.
The little snow leopard’s grey-blue eyes lazily looked at him. His long tail swept over Gu YuMian’s neck and stayed on the human’s earlobe, which had a very inconspicuous intimacy.
Gu YuMian was very active. When it came to changing houses, he immediately went to the Star Network to check the prices of large houses above five hundred square meters. Just after the single live broadcast, he had more than 10,000-star coins on his star card, which he thought was a huge sum of money.
Five minutes later.
Gu YuMian said, “Why am I so poor?”
Snow Leopard: “…”
He glanced over and felt puzzled. Wasn’t a month’s loan 100,000-star coins? It was not a lot of money. In the interstellar age, the land utilization rate was very high, even in the remote Takk, it couldn’t be too much to say that there was not a lot of land left. But this was not a lot of money in the eyes of the Emperor who had a whole star to himself.
Gu YuMian sat on the windowsill, holding the paw pads of the snow leopard, and said with a little frustration, “I’m useless. My baby is so cute but I can’t even take him to live in a big house.”
The little snow leopard pressed his paw on Gu YuMian’s face, suddenly worried that the human was crying, and went to see his eyes.
Gu YuMian’s eyes were beautiful, clear and light brown, like flowing honey in the moonlight. He looked at the little snow leopard from a very close distance, raised his eyebrows slightly, and after a moment, he lowered his head and kissed his forehead.
The young man’s lips were clean and soft, with a light scent of bamboo leaves, falling gently in the night.
The little snow leopard’s tail turned stiff. He hurriedly retreated two steps, subconsciously raised his right paw to touch his forehead, and quickly put it down.
Gu YuMian, “??”
The little snow leopard sat solemnly, then stood up and circled twice, suddenly jumped to the higher flowerpot rack, and looked at Gu YuMian. It seemed that only looking down on the human from the top could bring it a little peace and let the burning heat of his ears go down.
Gu YuMian, “???”
Cubs needed to be caressed, kissed or touched, which could give them a sense of security. This was a habitual action for him. When there were no parents, it was necessary for the keeper to play this role.
“Ah, you don’t like it. I won’t kiss you next time,” Gu YuMian said, scratching his chin. “It’s ten o’clock. Let’s go to bed.”
This matter had a great impact on the little snow leopard and he didn’t want to let Gu YuMian carry him away. He lay down on his own with the newly bought little bed and didn’t look at Gu YuMian.
Gu YuMian left a lamp switched on in the living room, stood at the door, sighed and went back to his room to sleep.
After Gu YuMian’s breathing became more and more even, the bedroom door which was slightly ajar was gently pushed open, and a small dark shadow jumped onto bed with ease, looking down at the sleeping human.
Gu YuMian was obviously immersed in a sweet dream. When he fell asleep, there was a half shallow dimple near his lips.
“Eight hundred… Ha… It’s not big enough,” he muttered, “to get a thousand square meters, no, it has to be by the school district seascape room. My cub has to go to the best school.”
Snow Leopard: “…” School district seascape room?
As usual, he wanted to find a comfortable position in the young man’s arms. His eyes stopped on the young man’s lips and he suddenly hesitated.
The white curtain was gently rolled up by the wind, and the air in the room was still for a moment.
Next second, the snow leopard disappeared.
Instead, a man in a double-breasted uniform and military boots, with a tall and slender figure highlighted by the lines of uniform stood next to the bed. He lowered his eyelids, his grey-blue pupils dipped in the moonlight, and his thin lips were slightly pursed. He leaned over and reached for the human’s hand. His index finger slipped from the young man’s eyes and trailed to the corner of his lips. Suddenly, he pressed on the pale lips slightly—— 1
It was just then.
The baby’s optical computer in the shape of a watch blinked rapidly.
A frown on the man’s brow immediately showed his displeasure and impatience. He paused for two seconds and finally stopped the funny optical computer and walked out of the room.
Downstairs, the special suspension device had been waiting for a long time. The design with a streamline body and gold titanium alloy was different from the old furnishings around. Fennick, who had been waiting for a long time, bowed forward and presented the customized optical computer with the same shape as the infant’s optical computer.
The Emperor stepped up to the suspension device, followed by Mr. Fennick, who respectfully said, “Your Majesty, as for Duke Rick, we are also working hard these two days—“
The Emperor impatiently interrupted him, “I don’t want to hear excuses.”
Fennick lowered his head, cold sweat sliding down his forehead. These two days, they had been busy looking for His Majesty. They were really slacking over the case of the Duke and gave the other a chance to linger. Thankfully, the Emperor did not pursue it.
Fennick suddenly heard His Majesty’s voice, “What is a seascape room in the school district?”
“…” The Emperor also seemed to think that this problem was stupid. His face was gloomy, and he never repeated it again.
Ten seconds later, Fennick heard the low voice of the Emperor again, and there was a very secret hint of care in his indifference, “Information.”
“Oh, that data,” Fennick thought of this. He operated on the optical computer twice and immediately opened a light screen in the middle of the air. “All the data you ordered for is here. He is the third son of the family…”
On the light screen, all the information about ‘Gu YuMian’ was shown. From birth to school, adulthood to the age of nineteen, then how he came to Takk alone.
The Emperor’s brow furrowed a little.
The next morning, when Gu YuMian woke up, the snow leopard was sleeping soundly on his chest.
Gu YuMian, “…”
It turned out that the little ancestor snuck over every night and now he finally knew the reason why he slept with a stuffy chest. The little snow leopard would usually be up earlier than Gu YuMian, and his working and rest time was very stable. He didn’t know what he had done last night, but the leopard still hadn’t woken up.
Gu YuMian pinched his pad and suddenly found that the little snow leopard was stepping on a pile of cards under his right paw.
Gu YuMian, “?”
He picked up the cub for a look.
——Floating Light Island Villa 1, 2, 3 permission cards, Haiyi Yueju top duplex permission card.
All kinds of access cards were piled up together, all of which were the most high-end housing access cards of Takk and Capital Star. The interstellar age authority cards were a combination of a key and real estate certificate.
The most terrifying thing was that Gu YuMian had seen these places yesterday when he looked up the data. ‘Floating Light Island’ was a new villa in the city of Starry Sky, the Capital City. In addition to the palace, the most high-end luxury houses in the whole galaxy were built there, with each building valued at more than one billion star coins. The authority cards of these three buildings were now in front of him.
Of course, it could be fake.
But Gu YuMian saw that the simulation image projected in the half-space by the authority card and saw that it was extremely beautiful — it was not fake.
Gu YuMian, “…” It’s over. The cub had learned to steal. Was it time to turn himself in?
In an hour.
It was hard to deal with the ‘stolen goods,’ but Gu YuMian was still preaching to the snow leopard, “Xue Tuan, we’ll have money for a big house, but gentlemen need to earn money.”
The little snow leopard listened impatiently. At last, he even listened and fell asleep in Gu YuMian’s arms.
Gu YuMian, “…”
Gu YuMian was soft again. He was really like a parent who doted on his children without any principles. Gu YuMian made a deep self-reflection and then happily cooked for the little snow leopard. Gu YuMian pondered which day he would take the snow leopard outdoors. He couldn’t always be bored with the cub inside, but he had to be prepared in advance to prevent danger.
The little snow leopard didn’t wake up until noon. Gu YuMian had made lunch.
After lunch, Gu YuMian received a message from the landlord, “Mr. Gu, my daughter is getting married soon. The house can’t be rented to you anymore. Please move out as soon as possible in the next two days.”
Gu YuMian, “??”
He had just settled down here, and now he had to move?
The little snow leopard glanced at the landlord’s news at random, not surprised at all. But Gu YuMian was immersed in his own thoughts and didn’t notice his eyes. Gu YuMian thought that his house was too small for the snow leopard. Just, where was he going to find a house in such a short time?
He logged onto the Star Network to look for a house. Coincidentally, as soon as he logged on, he refreshed and saw new house rental news.
【Takk Haiyi Yueju building on the top floor, with a small garden and a sea view room. The room is up for rent as the owner is leaving for Capital Star to study. Rent: 500 star coins/month.]
Gu YuMian, “???”
What was the difference between 500-star coins a month and free delivery? Are you kidding?
It was really too cheap. Gu YuMian couldn’t help but look at it again and again even though he knew it might be fake.
Haiyi Yueju was Takk’s high-end housing. The top duplex was a new building, the environment was very good and there was also a small garden, which provided enough space for the snow leopard to move around. Gu YuMian was very excited about this.
Didn’t it coincide with his ideas? Was the human dissatisfied? The little snow leopard was impatient with his grinning and chirping. He looked up at the details interface and clapped his paw on the [I want to rent] button.
Gu YuMian, “Xue Tuan!”
However, before he could press the “Cancel” button, the owner of the house there called in a hurry, “This is Mr. Gu right? Would you like to rent it? I’m flying to Capital Star today. If you like, you can move in today.”
Gu YuMian, “Er…”
The little snow leopard yawned indifferently.
“Is the price unsatisfactory?” The owner heard the little snow leopard’s voice, slightly shaking.”I can lower it, 400 — no, how about 100-star coins?”
Gu YuMian, “……”
Five hours later.
Gu YuMian finally paid the homeowner 10,000-star coins, which was all of his current wealth. Even so, he still had a sense of conscience about taking advantage of others. He was afraid of being a liar, but after careful investigation, he found that there were no flaws. Because the original landlord urged him to move away, and he didn’t have a lot of luggage. That afternoon, Gu YuMian moved with the snow leopard.
High-end housing was really different.
The environment of the community was very good; it was quiet in the middle of the noise from the outside world. The rockery and wooden corridor were a bit like a Japanese courtyard. 2 The property management personnel were very professional, not showing obvious discrimination because Gu YuMian was a human, but they were perfunctory, even very helpful.
As for the internal environment of the house, there was nothing to say.
There were two floors of the duplex, one floor had the living room, and the second floor had a study and bedroom, with a small garden and swimming pool on the top floor. There was a boundless blue sea and blue sky outside the large bay window. The wooden floor was also warm when walking barefoot. 3
The house had its own intelligent Butler system, which could automatically identify one’s race as soon as they entered the door, adjust the air conditioning to the optimal temperature, and open the curtains.
“Xue Tuan, it’s worth my life to live in such a house,” Gu YuMian said contentedly, holding the snow leopard on his back on the sofa and basking in the sun. “After meeting you, my luck has gotten better and better.”
First of all, he found such a little baby, and then found a good job. It was the dream life of Gu YuMian to have a cub and a house. He couldn’t help but rub his head on the fur along the neck of the snow leopard and took a deep breath, which made him feel happy.
The little snow leopard pushed his head away in disgust. This kind of house, in its eyes, was just barely liveable. Gu YuMian was so happy now but he would go to the palace in the future. Wasn’t it crazy to be happy about this?
Gu YuMian, of course, did not know that a certain Majesty had planned for him to enter the palace in the future. Because of the smart home system, he didn’t need to do any housework. Even his luggage was automatically collected and placed by the small robot. Gu YuMian only arranged the room and nest of the snow leopard himself.
After the arrangement, it was time for dinner.
Gu YuMian just remembered: I was busy moving this afternoon and forgot to prepare the ingredients for dinner. What should I do? Moreover, there was a live broadcast today.
Gu YuMian thought for a moment and soon had an idea in his mind. “It’s a pleasure to move. Let’s indulge tonight and make delicious food for our little ancestor.”
In an hour.
All kinds of food materials had been processed, Gu YuMian logged into the Star Live platform. As soon as he logged in, Gu YuMian was overwhelmed by 99+ messages and comments. Some of them were advertisements and new fans urging for a live broadcast. Of course, there were all kinds of abuse from animals that discriminated against humans too.
There were two official messages from Star Live Platform.
The first one was: Congratulations, Mr. Gu, on your new rank. Current rank: 13.
This meant that his popularity and the number of fans reached the target, ranking 13th in the new anchor list of Takk.
The second one was: The system has arranged the recommended spot for you, please be sure to start broadcasting at the specified time. Recommended position: heavyweight rank, recommended time: 6:00-8:00 p.m.
The recommended position for heavyweights were not bad but between six and eight… It was so embarrassing as it was during the time most would be eating. If he was creating live food, it would be okay, but the other live traffic in the living areas was very poor. After all, who wanted to learn to comb, bathe and cut nails when eating?
Gu YuMian’s popular live broadcast was where he combed hair yesterday. Therefore, everyone had defined him as a lifestyle kind of anchor. If he thought about it a little bit, he had been blacked out during this time.
But Gu YuMian didn’t understand the twists and turns at all. He made a general preparation and then turned on the live broadcast.
“Hello, everyone,” he said, holding the paw of the snow leopard up for the camera. “I’m Gu YuMian, this is Xue Tuan. Tonight’s live broadcast is about food and entertainment after dinner. You can choose your favorite time to watch.”
Two minutes into the broadcast, the number of viewers quickly exceeded four figures, moving towards five figures.
One of the viewers, who had been waiting to see Gu YuMian, thought it was a joke, “…”
Wait, what about the agreed grooming and bath? And what about the massage?
Of course, he didn’t know this.
At this moment, it had been just half a day since ‘There’s a Cloud’ released the recorded video.
In this half-day, enough videos quietly fired back and forth in the circle of friends of Capital Star, enough viewers of Capital Star found the server climbing software, connected to the Takk server, and quietly paid attention to the human anchor.
As a result, Gu YuMian started broadcasting for five minutes, and the number of viewers directly exceeded ten thousand.
