I Know Everything - Chapter 437
Chapter 437: Taste.
Chen Huan wasn’t sure if his investment in Jian Peng was a loss or not.
If you say that he lost out, it wasn’t the case.
He received 3 million from Shanhai Streaming and Jian Peng also helped him let out his anger by slapping Gan Liangchen’s face a few times, which was enough to make him happy.
But the investment on Meng Zijing couldn’t be stopped.
The mission given by Good Lord was to get Meng Zijing out of poverty and make her into a confident and beautiful woman.
Now, Meng Zijing couldn’t be considered poor.
The song ‘Understanding’ was sung in the Karaoke like crazy.
She gave a call to Chen Huan and the data she saw for last week was 1 million copyright fees.
This was equivalent to around 1.5 million usage per day.
After so many weeks of fermentation, ‘Understanding’ became more deeply rooted into the heart of the people and it especially pierced into the hearts of those broken hearted girls.
It could be seen that there were a lot of scumbags in China that broke the hearts of many girls and made them sing ‘Understanding’.
At the rate Meng Zijing was earning money, it wouldn’t be a problem for her to be a wealthy woman with tens of millions in wealth before the Spring Festival arrived.
By just relying on the song, Meng Zijing could earn millions of yuan every year for the next 20 to 30 years. If you took the world where Chen Huan came from as an example, there were still many women that sang ‘Understanding’!
The annual income of one million yuan would be enough to feed Meng Zijing’s family and comfortably live as a middle class family.
This didn’t include that Meng Zijing would be hired to give a performance and the price for it was now 600k for a song, which was at the same rank as a small empress!
However, the Good Lord didn’t give any notice of completing the mission so it could only because of the latter two conditions.
Confident and beautiful.
As far as women were concerned, self-confidence and beauty were complementary.
A woman filled with confidence and vigor would certainly not be ugly.
The aura given out by that person would fascinate others.
Meng Zijing was beautiful and she didn’t become some old hag in her thirties.
As a woman that was about to become a little empress in the past, her appearance was still alright.
Now she wasn’t beautiful as beautiful and the biggest reason for that was probably because she didn’t regain her confidence back.
Women’s self-confidence wasn’t only reflected in money but many other things.
Chen Huan didn’t know much about women but he believed in something.
That was saving the country in an indirect way. (TL: Sorry, I’ve no idea what the author is trying to convey here.)
He felt that if Meng Zijing wasn’t confident enough, it was whether she didn’t have enough money in her hands or because she wasn’t satisfied with her own popularity and ability.
Then it was easy.
Just give her another song!
Giving her another song like ‘Understanding’ and with two classic love songs in her hands, did he still have to worry that Meng Zijing’s income and popularity wouldn’t rise to higher levels?
With another song like ‘Understanding’, it would be impossible for her to not feel reassured.
So Chen Huan could only give her another song.
Chen Huan didn’t think about what song.
Since they started with Xin Xiaoqi, the second song should also come from her.
Xin Xiaoqi had two masterpieces among her songs.
One was ‘Understanding’ that was filled with sorrow.
The other song was called ‘Taste’ and it was actually the same type as ‘Understanding’.
But there was a bit of missing the past in ‘Taste’, missing about the sweetness in the past.
It was just that kind of missing the past also contained sorrow and pain.
Because you couldn’t go back to the past.
So the ‘taste’ could only stay in one’s mind and be slowly tasted.
People even thought at one time that the songwriter for the two songs were the same.
But it wasn’t.
Those songwriters in Taiwan were really geniuses as they were able to grasp Xin Xiaoqi’s emotion and create such a great classic that suited completely to her characteristic.
Luckily, Chen Huan inherited the wealth from that whole world so could easily make the song.
After finishing writing ‘Taste’, Chen Huan faxed the song to Meng Zijing’s home.
Meng Zijing, who was preparing a New Year’s party at home, couldn’t even react during the call.
Because Chen Huan only said two sentences.
I wrote you a song.
Turn on the fax machine to receive it.
Her heart was pumping hard when she put down the phone and turned on her fax machine.
What… what is going on!?
Teacher Lu wrote me another song!?
Did she hear it wrong or it was for real?
Treasure came out of nowhere!
What was this song about? Would it be like ‘Understanding?
Thousands of thoughts went through her mind as the machine beeped.
Meng Zijing’s hands were trembling when she picked up the paper.
Meng Zijing softly muttered as she looked at the title of the song.
Then she read the lyrics next.
Her heart rate immediately picked up in pain the moment she looked at it.
“Missing your smile, missing your coat, missing your socks, and the taste of you.”
“I miss your kiss and the taste of smoke from your cigarette, the memories of the taste of once being loved.”
With those two lyrics, Meng Zijing’s eyes instantly turned red as tears fell down.
She once thought that her mind was stabilized after ‘Understanding’.
No matter how big of a blow or how painful it was, she thought it was impossible to shake her heart that had already let it out once again.
But now Meng Zijing realized that those sweet memories that were accompanied with pain were still engraved in her heart and never erased.
She realized that it wasn’t because she couldn’t forget the man.
It was because she couldn’t forget the sweet moment they had.
The shadow of that man had faded long ago.
But those moments were still a beautiful thing she was willing to cherish.
It was just like how it was written in the lyrics, the taste of it was embedded in her mind and never far away.
“Lu Xiaofeng understands a girl’s heart way too well!” after crying, she exclaimed, “If such a man is also an asshole, who knows how much of a broken heart there would be!”
Meng Zijing felt that no one understood a girl’s heart better than Chen Huan.
Just from ‘Understanding’ and ‘Taste’, it showed how deeply he understood the mind of a woman.
Women couldn’t stand a man that could seize their heart like that.
Most women weren’t moved by developing love via familiarity.
Those were just affection.
The easiest way to capture a girl’s heart was a moment where you moved her heart.
That was love.
As an experienced woman, Meng Zijing knew that Chen Huan could easily seize a girl’s heart.
Let alone a girl, even a grown woman like her wanted to plunge into Chen Huan’s arms and cry.
To know if a girl fell in love with a guy.
It wasn’t about how she smiled at you or was willing to do things for you.
Just see if she would be willing to cry in front of you.
Because if she was willing to show her weak side in front of you without reservation,
She placed her trust in you!
After a moment of thoughts going everywhere, Meng Zijing finally came out.
Determination appeared in her eyes as she looked at the song.
The most glorious thing for a singer was having a song that could completely represent them.
She already had one with the help of Teacher Lu Xiaofeng but then she got another one, how lucky was she?
She must sing this song well so she could live up to the great effort done by Teacher Lu!
Thank you very much Teacher Lu!
