Chapter 1463: “Princess-Knight” Goes On-Air
“That’s right. Dog food is a hit, to begin with, so what’s so strange about him getting on a popular variety show?” another girl said in a disdainful tone, but she was wearing a proud expression.
Squeezed between the two girls, Bai Qingqing wore a numb expression.
Since when has my Parker become dog food?
The girls clearly showed their likes for Parker as they talked, and they were extremely agitated too. Bai Qingqing felt both jealous and consoled when seeing this.
However, as the music faded off and the celebrities’ voices were played, the situation took a sharp plunge.
The camera was once again on Parker. The moment he got on the plane, he shouted loudly, “I want to go home!”
Bunched up in a group, the girls were speechless. What the heck?
Bai Qingqing was also speechless. She really couldn’t bear to see this.
“I want to go home!” was considered the greatest surprise for the opening. Therefore, the camera stayed on Parker, showing the audience a clear representation of his willfulness.
The girls’ impression of Parker immediately plunged to rock bottom. They were stunned for a while before they got their voices back.
“Why is my dog food like this? I don’t believe it. He must be another fake.”
“I feel that I’ve seen a fake ‘Princess-Knight’.”
“Is this the legendary prince syndrome? He’s acting up just from taking a flight.”
Hearing the various negative reviews, Bai Qingqing rubbed her temples and got up, saying, “I’m not watching anymore.”
After lifting her b.u.t.t, Bai Qingqing sat back down again. No, she should hold it in and continue watching.
In the following scenes, Parker’s willfulness only kept increasing. He’d enter a daze when other people cooked, ignoring them even when they called him over to eat. The celebrities at the dining table had all gotten angry, and the viewers were also furious.
Bai Qingqing felt that this was a miscalculation. She had thought that given Parker’s bright character, he should be suitable to take part in variety shows. She didn’t expect things to turn out like this.
Tang Li was very disappointed and said to her, “Even if there isn’t Parker, there’s still Zhang Yu. Let’s just watch the other celebrities.”
“En,” Bai Qingqing replied half-heartedly, but her gaze kept searching for Parker.
As the rest of the group got increasingly repulsed by Parker, Bai Qingqing’s mood changed from not daring to watch to worry.
This was only the first day. She didn’t dare to imagine how Parker had tide over the next few days.
After feeling disappointed about him, the girls found a new interest—discussing amongst themselves and criticizing Parker. Parker’s changes didn’t affect them too much.
Bai Qingqing was the only one who cared about and continued to look at him. After the self-study period was over, the program ended too.
After the cla.s.s, many people in the cla.s.s started to criticize Parker, and she felt upset when hearing this. She buried her head down and did her homework.
When it was time to sleep, Bai Qingqing lay in bed, browsing Weibo posts about Parker. As expected, there was nothing but scoldings, with some of them being insults. The netizens’ scoldings came in many different ways and patterns, not using a single vulgar word.
Bai Qingqing was so angry that she almost smashed her phone. Holding it in, she switched off the phone and closed her eyes angrily.
An episode of “Princess and Knight” was broadcast every day. Bai Qingqing paid for data charges the next day too, wanting to watch the second episode when it went on air. However, she missed it because she had cla.s.s.
Bai Qingqing only managed to watch the rerun on the Internet during her lunchtime.
Many students also watched the second episode at this time. The sounds of “Princess and Knight” filled up the canteen, with quite a number of people crowding around each spot; most people were unwilling to spend too much money on data charges.
Bai Qingqing’s lunch spot was also crowded with many cla.s.smates from her cla.s.s. Amidst the discussions, the second episode of “Princess and Knight” started.
