40 Perplex (困扰)


In conjunction with Bai Xinyan’s Weibo, the official blog of 《Career Story》 released more videos soon, all of which were shots of Bai Xinyan and Xiaotian during training.
Although it was just a few short tidbits of less than a minute, the video effect was unexpectedly good.
After watching a few videos, it was easy for people to accept the very powerful Xiaotian and the extremely tacit understanding between Bai Xinyan and Xiaotian.
Many people even said that the interaction between the two of them looked like they could communicate with each other.
No wonder Bai Xinyan could receive Xiaotian’s alert signal when the accident happened and directly started looking for the assailant.

Conspiracy theories were of course invalid.
On the contrary, the attention of Bai Xinyan and the first episode of 《Career Story》 suddenly rose to the peak.
The director and producer became beaming.
When they began recording the next day, the attitude towards the guests was much more kind.

The second episode of the program was still recorded in City H, and the theme of this time was an even more rare and unexplained profession—the hug teacher (拥抱师, or we should call it “Hugger”?).

“Isn’t it a profession that specializes in hugging and comforting people?” Jian Han asked, feeling very bad.
Because it was recorded together with the first issue, she was naturally the special guest in the second issue.
For Jian Han, who had a cold and fierce image, this kind of professional test was obviously not suitable for her.

“Congratulations, you’re right!” The director smiled admiringly, “Hug teacher is a very rare profession at present and there are very few domestic hug teachers.
Most people don’t know and won’t hire hug teachers.
After all, people in our country are more restrained and are reluctant to expose their weaknesses to strangers.
However, in fact, it will be much better if someone confides and is comforted when they are unhappy and have a hard time.
A good hug teacher can’t only improve the customer’s mental state but also bring confidence and motivation to the other party, which is equivalent to saving patients from mental drowning.
So this is a very meaningful job, you will learn and experience it in the next two days.
Hopefully, you guys do well.”

The director continued, “After you have been trained, we have already contacted some customers who are willing to participate in the recording and need the services of the hug teacher.
You will select the service target in order according to the ranking of the previous assessment.
In other words, people with the highest rankings are given the priority to choose the customers who are easier to get along with.
The ranking of this episode of the show is determined by the customers’ ratings of your service.” The director said, smiling kindly, and looked at Li Zhibai, whose face was obviously stiff, “So I reminded you before that the ranking of the assessment is very important.
It’s the same this time because we still have the next issue, do you understand?”

The director laughed so much that everyone had a chill, but Jian Han said without giving face, “En? Then there will be no me in the next issue, can I rest assured?”

“……” The director paused and said, “Your ranking will be reserved for the special guests in the next issue.
If the ranking is too bad, they may ask you to settle the account.”

“It’s all right, one person does the job and the other person takes care of it.
Come to me if they want me to settle the account.
I really can’t comfort people.” Jian Han said bluntly like a broken jar.

Seeing that another guest gave up struggling at the beginning of this issue, the director suddenly felt that there was something peculiar about their show so that it would become a fixed setting.

The training of a hug teacher was a bit like a psychological counsellor, but there was no special assessment and certification for this profession after all.
The time was limited, so the so-called training was also very simple.
In addition to some talking and comforting skills, there were also some hugging skills.

After a group of people learning for a long time, feeling that their hands were stiff, they barely enough finished the training.
However, the program group didn’t directly put them on duty, but let them practice with each other first.
This time, it was another team of two people.

Three males and three females.
Generally speaking, male and female matches would be more interesting, but the program group allowed them to team up freely.
Naturally, Li Zhibai and Bai Xinyan got together first, and Ai Qiao didn’t seem to buy Tang Yuying’s account, leaving her aside and choosing her new friend Jian Han.
Tang Yuying naturally could only go with Gu Chenghao.

Upon seeing this, Gu Chenghao had a good temper and took the initiative to invite Tang Yuying to form a team, but Tang Yuying was obviously not very happy, and the service was totally messed up.

The most harmonious group was Ai Qiao and Jian Han.
Bai Xinyan and Li Zhibai were in a situation that not to know whether to laugh or cry again.

Bai Xinyan, “Sir, do you have any troubles?”

Li Zhibai thought for a while, “It doesn’t seem to be…”

Bai Xinyan paused and continued according to the basic content of the study, “Sir, you don’t need to be nervous.
You can think of me as a tree hole and say whatever you want.
Would you like to listen to some music and relax first?”

Li Zhibai, “…let me think about it.” After a moment, his eyes lit up and then frowned slightly, “There is indeed one! I recently discovered a problem.
I thought my long… er, goal, suddenly encountered obstacles, and haven’t found a solution yet!” (我一直以来的, not sure how)

Bai Xinyan said with a serious face, “Did you encounter a bottleneck in your career?”

Li Zhibai, “It’s the value of the face.”

Bai Xinyan, “…or you should change your goal, this is hopeless.” Bai Xinyan said sincerely to Li Zhibai.

“……” Li Zhibai still remembered that he was recording a program, silently enduring the desire to refute passionately.

Bai Xinyan’s practice ended here and apparently failed completely.
However, after the roles of the two changed, they weren’t much better.

Li Zhibai’s tone was still dissatisfied, “Sir, do you have anything to tell me?”

Bai Xinyan also thought for a while and said after a moment, “No.”

Li Zhibai grimaced and asked unprofessionally, “There must be one.”

Bai Xinyan said with a frank expression, “There really is no such thing.”

Li Zhibai: “……”

The cameraman who was in charge of shooting them had already laughed so much that he couldn’t stabilize the camera.
The director and others were also dumbfounded for a moment, but their faces soon became happy.
The recommended two guests from Xinghuan were really good! Just looking at the contrast interaction between Li Zhibai and Bai Xinyan, the popularity of this show would definitely not be bad!

As for Li Zhibai, it seemed that there was a problem with his set-up personality which was somewhat collapsed.
Anyway, his agent Shao Ping didn’t say anything, nor did he ask the program group to delete this and that, like Tang Yuying’s agent did.
When the release time came, these interesting scenes would be focused to watch.
It was said that Li Zhibai’s participation in the reality show meant a bit of transformation, but now it seemed that the effect was just right.
At least in their opinion, Li Zhibai’s performance that didn’t conform to his previous personal settings wasn’t annoying but also quite interesting and pleasing.
Even if he would lose some followers, it was estimated that it would be able to attract more new followers.

The director urged the cameraman to take more pictures of Li Zhibai and Bai Xinyan.
When they were about to start serving customers, the director showed them the information of the available customers.

There were a total of twelve people, each of them had to serve two, and they could only pick one at a time, which meant that they needed to complete one round before they could make the second selection, instead of picking both of the two that seemed to be talkative at once.
In this way, the influence of the selection order was reduced a little.

Bai Xinyan was naturally the first one to pick.
He quickly read the simple information of twelve people, then pondered for a moment, and chose the only one… elementary school student.

Others were quite surprised by his choice.
When the director asked, Bai Xinyan said truthfully, “I think children should be more straightforward and their distressing problems should be easier to solve.”

His idea was also very reasonable.
Others couldn’t help but feel that they didn’t have such a different idea and immediately reconsidered the remaining eleven people.

After the six people had selected their customers, they started to □□ separately.

The primary school student Bai Xinyan chose was a small fat boy with good family background.
At first glance, he was a child soaked in a honey jar, with smooth-skinned and a little weak.
After Bai Xinyan came, he asked directly, “Can you help me do my homework?”

Bai Xinyan, “…no, you should write your own homework.”

Xiao Pangdun suddenly lowered his face, “Didn’t you say you can solve my troubles?” (小胖墩, meant little fatty actually but I used this name instead for some reason)

Bai Xinyan said without changing his face, “Yes, so I can help you do your homework.”

Xiao Pangdun avoided his face, “What’s the use of that? I just don’t want to do homework, I want to play games! I tell you, I play xxxx very well, but I will play e-sports and become a world champion in the future!”

Bai Xinyan, “…then shall I play games with you?”

Xiao Pangdun was surprised, “You want to play games with me? Didn’t my parents say that you came to persuade me to do my homework?”

Bai Xinyan said, “Didn’t you say you played super well? Then let’s make a bet.
If you can take me to win a game, I will persuade your parents to give you more time to play games, in order to be the champion in the future; if you can’t win a game, then you will have to finish your homework before playing the game.”

Xiao Pangdun’s eyes lit up suddenly, “Really?!”

Seeing Bai Xinyan nod, Xiao Pangdun asked suspiciously, “Are you very weak at this? How many games do you want to win?”

“…not weak, but I haven’t played the game you mentioned.” Bai Xinyan said, “As long as you can win a game with me, do you want to bet?”

Xiao Pangdun opened his eyes wide and nodded quickly after a moment, “Yes, yes, yes! How can I not win any games.
Hahaha, are you stupid?”

Xiao Pangdun laughed.
Others in the room also thought that Bai Xinyan was mostly stupid, but Bai Xinyan still said calmly, “Wait until you win.”

He had tried it.
The metaphysical buff on his body that “you will lose if you don’t team up with Yin Heng” was applicable to almost any PVP game, and most of the game Xiao Pangdun played was the same.
In other words, as long as he teamed up with Bai Xinyan, Xiao Pangdun would basically have no hope of winning and would definitely lose.
Of course, if Xiao Pangdun really won, then either his technique could match Yin Heng, or he had a victory buff as powerful as Yin Heng.
If this was the case, Xiao Pangdun was indeed suitable to be an e-sports player, and then he recommended that the other party’s parents tried to give him a shot in this direction, there was no problem.

Xiao Pangdun still didn’t know what he was about to face, but happily instructed Bai Xinyan to open the game registration account.

“You remember to listen to my command.
You can’t deliberately drag your legs back, do you hear me!” Xiao Pangdun said fiercely.

“No problem.” Bai Xinyan agreed without guilty.

The program group had no idea how the promised hug teacher became a game player.
In order to ensure the playback effect, they had to toss about the problem of phone screen recording for a long time.

At that time, the editing would probably have to find someone who understood the game.
The cameraman thought silently.

The game began, the first game.

Xiao Pangdun: “Do it again!”

The second game.

Xiao Pangdun: “…it’s okay, do it again!”

The third game.

Xiao Pangdun: “Do it again! There are so many opportunities, it’s a big deal to play ten games and eight games.”


The eighth game.

Xiao Pangdun’s eyes were fierce: “…you, you go wash your face and hands with me! This is too dark!”


The tenth game.

Xiao Pangdun had already begun to believe in metaphysics: “…you are really poisonous, right? You haven’t won once after ten games, no wonder you dare to make this bet with me.
No! There is no limit on the number of times, why can’t you win even once!”


The fifteenth game.

Xiao Pangdun was helpless: “…I was superstitious about science until I met you.
Are you on the blacklist of the game company, my God!”

The twentieth game.

Xiao Pangdun finally collapsed, dropped his mobile phone, and shouted, “Aaah! I can’t take it anymore!! I’m not playing anymore!!”

Bai Xinyan, who hugged Yin Heng’s thigh, hadn’t lost this much for a long time, but his state of mind was very stable when he was mentally prepared.

“If you don’t play, then let’s do your homework.” Bai Xinyan said with a smile.

Xiao Pangdun, whose body and mind had just been tortured: “……”
