I’m 8 Million Poor
I’m 8 Million Poor Chapter 8

When Ji Chen turned his head back, he found that Jiang Baiwan on the other side of the screen was moving again.

“The moon is really bright.” Jiang Baiwan sat on the roof and stretched. “Oh, it looks like I’m almost done laying the roof.”

Jiang Baiwan was nimble and did manage to cover up the few holes. In any case, there was no need to use the moon as a quilt today.

But Jiang Baiwan didn’t go down immediately. She sat on the roof, crossed her legs, and made a pose.

At this time, Shui Lan’er had dinner ready. Facing the camera, Shui Lan’er couldn’t procrastinate. Just when she was about to call Jiang Baiwan, she heard a girl’s undisguised laughter coming from outside.

Shui Lan’er froze. She hesitated for a while, before finally running out.

Under the moonlight, Jiang Baiwan was sitting on the roof with her hands held high. The moon was positioned exactly where her palms were resting; looking as if Jiang Baiwan was holding it. Seeing Shui Lan’er come out, Jiang Baiwan greeted her excitedly, “Hey, hey, hey! Look, am I now holding the moon?”

Shui Lan’er: “……”

In a matter of two seconds, Jiang Baiwan transformed from a cold beauty under the moonlight into a silly girl. She didn’t have any self-consciousness and was still laughing, while half of her torn shorts fluttered slightly with the wind.

“Xiao Wan, come down quickly.” Shui Lan’er felt a little embarrassed, her face flushed red. “You’ll disturb others like this.”

However, Jiang Baiwan has never been a person who listens to advice. She shook her head and decisively refused Shui Lan’ers request. “I think this roof is quite comfortable. Do you want to come up and lie down with me? It’s higher up here so there will be no mosquitos.”

After saying that, Jiang Baiwan changed her posture again. She clasped her hands together, moved her buttocks, and now she was wearing the moon on her head.

“Amitabha.” Jiang Baiwan winked at Shui Lan’er. “Little benefactor, what’s the matter with you coming out at this moment? Could it be that evening meal is ready?”

Shui Lan’er clenched her fist as she took a step back, her eyes quickly filling with tears. She choked out a sob and seemed to be desperately enduring. “Xiao Wan, I know you have a problem with me. You…… I just came to ask you to eat!”

Jiang Baiwan was stunned. She scratched the back of her head but before she could say anything, she saw Shui Lan’er who was standing below suddenly took a deep breath, followed by wiping away her own tears. As if she had made up her mind, Shui Lan’er said in a faint voice, “Xiao Wan, can we get along well?”

“……I’ve been getting along well with you, haven’t I?” Jiang Baiwan felt that she simply couldn’t get the heroine. She really didn’t have any malicious intentions ah.

As a result, after hearing these words, it was as if Shui Lan’er had received some huge blow. She sobbed again, and then ran back to her house without saying a word.

Jiang Baiwan: “???”

“Have I done something wrong again?” Jiang Baiwan felt like she couldn’t figure out Monk Zhang’er[1]a play on words on an idiom: like a three-meter high monk, you can’t rub his head; cannot make head or tail of something; be completely at a loss.

In fact, the viewers in front of the screen were also confused. The camera honestly recorded everything that happened. They also couldn’t understand why Shui Lan’er suddenly ran back to the house as if she had suffered a great grievance.

【……Shui Lan’er is so dramatic. What happened to the ‘pure girl’?】

【I think she’s pretty good at crying. If she does Aunt Qiongyao’s[2]Chiung Yao or Qiong Yao is the pen name of Chen Che, a Taiwanese writer and producer who is often regarded as the most popular romance novelist in the Chinese-speaking world. Her novels have been … Continue reading drama, she might be a hit.】

【Jiang Baiwan: Confused. jpg】

Ji Chen looked at Shui Lan’er, frowning tightly. He knew that Chu Yunhan wanted to support his girlfriend, and for the sake of Chu Yunhan’s father, he didn’t intend to argue with him. It’s just that he didn’t expect that Chu Yunhan’s girlfriend seemed to be muddled?

On the contrary, Jiang Baiwan had a lot more heart. Though in the past, she was always splitting hairs.

When Ji Chen came to his senses, he found that he had stopped all his work and was observing Jiang Baiwan on the other side of the camera with full attention.

——What’s wrong with me?

Ji Chen pursed his lips and suddenly reached out to lower the laptop screen. He stood up, walked to the floor-to-ceiling windows, and looked at the busy traffic outside, but Ji Chen’s mind was full of the cheerful and bright smile on Jiang Baiwan’s face under the moonlight just now.

This Jiang Baiwan wasn’t as shrewd and harsh as before, but was quite silly…… and cute.

Ji Chen thought that he must be crazy. He didn’t expect that one day he would find Jiang Baiwan cute.

The young president tried hard to erase Jiang Baiwan’s shadow from his mind. After standing for a long time, Ji Chen finally calmed down once again. He exhaled slowly and sat back down in front of his desk.

He lifted the screen of his laptop, wanting to turn off the live broadcast room, but as a result, he saw the bullet screen filled with comments. Ji Chen was startled for a moment, and then took a closer look. His handsome face instantly darkened.

——Jiang Baiwan was standing on the top of the roof, posing the highly difficult ‘golden rooster standing on one leg[3]taichi posture’.

“I will ascend the mountain’s crest; It—it dwarfs all houses under my feet[4]《Gazing At Mount Tai》, a poem by Du Fu; I will ascend the mountain’s crest; It dwarfs all peaks under my feet!” Jiang Baiwan was as excited as if she had drunk fake wine.

Tan Mi was taking a bath in her house when she heard Jiang Baiwan shouting outside. She originally didn’t want to care about the bankrupt lady, but she hadn’t expected Jiang Baiwan to suddenly call out to her outside, “Tan Mi, Tan Mi!”

Tan Mi rolled her eyes. She didn’t want to talk to Jiang Baiwan at first, but Jiang Baiwan refused to let her go and persistently shouted. Tan Mi was really helpless. She feebly asked, “What?”

“Quickly close the window.” Jiang Baiwan sounded a little embarrassed. She said rather vaguely, “Don’t leave a gap.”

Jiang Baiwan’s words made Tan Mi’s whole person stiffened.

After a long while, a woman’s scream could be heard through the night air. “Jiang Baiwan! You rouge!” This was followed by the sound of a slamming window.

Jiang Baiwan also felt that what she did was a little uncool. She should apologize to Tan Mi when she goes down later.

Just when Jiang Baiwan was about to sit down first, she suddenly felt that the roof under her feet seemed to be slightly sinking.

——What’s wrong?

Before Jiang Baiwan could recover, she suddenly fell down along with the straws. Jiang Baiwan had no chance to react and directly dropped from the roof into the house, finally landing onto the bed.

The dilapidated old bed had already made an unbearable creaking sound as early as when Jiang Baiwan was cleaning it, and now a large living person fell from the sky and smashed on it heavily. The old bed barely held on and the loose board was broken by Jiang Baiwan at once.

Immediately, the articles on the bed and the broken bed boards, mixed with the grass falling from the roof, turned the scene into a pot of mess. Jiang Baiwan, who was in the center of the chaos, struggled hard despite the pain in her body, trying to break free from it all.

She subconsciously groped for something that could support her, but she accidentally reached for the water glass on the bedside table. Jiang Baiwan was covered by the bed sheet, unable to see the surrounding situation clearly. After a careless wave of her hand, the glass of water became the last straw that broke the camel’s back, solidly soaking Jiang Baiwan through the sheet.

Jiang Baiwan: “……”

The cameras inside the house recorded all of this. The audience watched the whole process from the moment Jiang Baiwan fell, to the moment she smashed the bed and knocked over the water glass. Everyone was shell-shocked by what happened. It wasn’t until Jiang Baiwan, who was wrapped in the sheet, stopped moving, that they sent out fearful messages.

【Is Jiang Baiwan all right?】

【She fell from such a high place and broke the bed. She must be injured!】

【Good heavens, she’s not moving. Did she pass out?】

After quite a while, the pile of sheets moved again. Everyone across the screen watched as the sheets started squirming, until finally, Jiang Baiwan got out with a birds nest hairstyle.

“This roof is too weak…… Didn’t I just stand there for a while?” Jiang Baiwan felt pain all over her body. She winced with her hair still dripping, appearing extremely wretched.

Alas, if she knew this would happen, she wouldn’t have let herself go so freely. Great, not only did the roof she just repaired have another hole, she now even had no place to sleep.

Jiang Baiwan brushed her wet hair back indiscriminately, sat in the ruins rather dejectedly, and began to seriously reflect on herself—— Where should she sleep tonight?

So the audience saw Jiang Baiwan sitting there blankly, and many people who were laughing just now gradually felt a little sympathetic—— Looking at this, they’re afraid that Jiang Baiwan might have to spend the night among the ruins today.

Just when everyone was full of sympathy for Jiang Baiwan, she suddenly moved again. She crawled out of the rubble on her hands and knees, quickly stood up and brushed the dust off her clothes. Then she went out, forgetting to bring the live streaming equipment she should carry with her.

What was Jiang Baiwan going to do?

The camera outside the house captured Jiang Baiwan’s figure. She darted to Tan Mi’s door and knocked without any hesitation.

Tan Mi happened to have just finished taking a bath, and when she came out, she heard a knock on the door. Tan Mi stopped for a moment before going to the door and asking, “Who is it?”

“Tan Mi, Tan Mi!” Outside the door came Jiang Baiwan’s full voice, “It’s me, open the door.”

Jiang Baiwan only saw the door in front of her open abruptly. Tan Mi was wearing a silk nightgown, showing her graceful figure in full view. She leaned on the door frame, crossed her hands and swept a glance at Jiang Baiwan before raising her eyebrows. “What are you doing here looking for me for nothing?”

Under the moonlight, Jiang Baiwan flashed a bright smile at Tan Mi. Tan Mi suddenly had a bad feeling, but it was too late to stop Jiang Baiwan.

Jiang Baiwan’s voice was clear and full of confidence. “I want to sleep with you tonight!”
