Chapter 2: … Yes, still sleeping.
It’s not that He Yu has the courage to not try to leave, but at this moment, he simply can’t leave!
When he just dodged forcefully, he not only became exhausted but also pulled a muscle.
This was no longer the body that had been trained for ten years, his flexibility was not as strong, and the result of the slick moves just now was severe.
He Yu struggled to take off his glasses and squinted his eyes, looking up at the sky above him.
His pale and handsome face had a sense of brokenness, which easily made people feel protective and want to bring everything to him.
But facing his deep and charming eyes, one could find that there was no fragility or melancholy in them.
On the contrary, they were full of unyielding toughness and madness.
His name is He Yu, but he is not the He Yu of this world.
He practised acrobatics from childhood, then joined a company as a trainee.
After ten years of hard work and practice, he participated in a talent show and became a national idol with unparalleled business capabilities, surpassing all others in the world (his votes were far higher than the second place).
Since his debut, He Yu has always been synonymous with “top-tier,” even opening up an era of his own.
But he was not satisfied with this.
The next year, He Yu switched to acting.
At that time, how many people criticised him? Some even called his transition to acting and filming ‘unworthy of an idol.’
But in just two years, He Yu proved to everyone with his works and skills that he was a natural-born actor.
As a TV drama king, a movie emperor, and a global sensation, every step he took was both shocking and expected.
Last night, He Yu was awarded the title of ‘Water Blue Star Hall-level Actor’.
He has reached the pinnacle of this industry, and he is the pride of countless fans.
But for He Yu himself, after last night, he seems to have lost interest in that world.
Unexpectedly, just as he lost interest in his own world, he woke up and found himself in another world.
This world has a similar background to his own, except that in his world there are many countries worldwide, while in this world, there is only one country, called Blue Star.
The ‘He Yu’ here is also from a talent show, but unlike him, the original body only made it to debut as the second-place winner due to ‘having an outstanding face but average ability’.
Moreover, the original body’s behaviour is not self-aware like an idol, speaking without a filter, and the highest popularity was only during the talent show period.
After debuting, attention declined rapidly and he quickly became obscure.
He signed up for the ‘Top Stream Competition’ just for hype, but unexpectedly he was selected by the program team, which greatly distressed the original body.
‘Top Stream Competition’ is indeed a chance to rise to the top, and you can indeed come into contact with countless superpowers, but out of the 10 million contestants in the entire universe, only one person will ultimately survive!
Everyone knows that the Cosmic Federation forced them to select 10,000 people just to make up the numbers!
Just to see how they embarrass themselves, how they die.
The plight of the Blue Star people here can be imagined.
The original body didn’t think he would be so lucky.
If he hadn’t been too scared to commit suicide, he would never have entered!
Once you sign up for ‘Top Stream Competition’ and receive your sequence number, you will automatically enter the selection when the time comes.
There is no escaping it even if you want to.
Once inside, one either climbs to the top and becomes the only victor and the top star of the universe, or dies inside and disappears forever in the universe.
Compared to other beings from the Cosmic Federation, the Blue Star people have no advantages whatsoever.
Although nothing can be brought into the competition, seemingly fair, the other beings with special abilities are much stronger than the Blue Star people.
They can make their own weapons, and potions, and even use their own special abilities, making it much easier for them to pass the test compared to weaker planets.
‘Top Stream Competition’ is a very brutal competition.
The rules are simple, just like playing a game, completing the task and earning enough points can lead to the next level.
At the same time, after the preliminary round, every advancement stage of the citizens of the Cosmic Federation has a vote, which is equal to one point.
If the player has enough votes, they can enter the next round without passing the level.
Therefore, popularity is very important.
Most of the time, players can fight against each other and pick up equipment dropped by the other party.
They can also cooperate to complete tasks and earn rewards, or fight monsters and pick up equipment.
He Yu did not know the situation in the later stages, but the preliminary round task requires that all players be informed as soon as they enter the competition –
【Make it to shore.】
At the moment when the selection began, all participating players were transported to a world known as the ‘Sea World.’ As the name suggests, this world is mostly made up of seawater, and within the water live countless terrifying monsters that are extremely fierce.
However, in this hopeless world, there is also an artificial island, which is the only chance for the players! The island can accommodate one million people.
Once one million people set foot on the island, the others will forever remain in the sea world, becoming food for the monsters.
Out of ten million people, only one million will make it to the island, and nine million will be eliminated!
This level does not require points.
As long as you find the island, getting on shore means survival.
If you can’t find the island or can’t get on it, it means death.
He Yu: “…”
Selecting in the sea…
This is truly a ‘real audition’.
The original body could swim, but unfortunately, his ability was too weak.
Shortly after entering the sea world, he was entangled by something and dragged into darkness.
Now, He Yu has become him and is about to replace him in this talent show.
He Yu takes a deep breath.
He raises his hand, covering his face and also blocking the gradually excited eyes.
In He Yu’s world, those who know him all know that he is a born “camera performer and performance artist”.
As long as there is a camera he can be a perfect god or can pretend to be a perfect god. (TN: I don’t understand what this sentence means and why it is written like that.)
He Yu loves the camera and enjoys attention.
His lifelong pursuit is to ‘captivate the world’.
He likes to be watched and observed by everyone, and he also likes the process of step by step gaining everyone’s attention.
And now, the ‘Top Stream Competition’ brings not only attention from the “world”, but also the entire universe!
Is there a better opportunity than this?
Such an opportunity is right in front of him.
How can He Yu not be excited?
Having just ‘perfectly cleared’ the previous level, he arrived at the starting point of the ‘upgraded’ world, and the flame in his heart seemed to ignite instantly.
As for the 99.999999% probability of dying in the selection process?
He wasn’t afraid at all.
He feared being forgotten by others more than death.
Thinking about this being a competition that was being watched by the entire universe, his body trembled slightly, and the trembling and madness from the depths of his soul were reflected in his eyes.
Therefore, he covered his eyes.
“This person… what is he doing?”
“Is he planning to go to sleep?”
“I can’t believe it… he wants to die even faster.
He’s wasting his agile body.”
“I’m leaving now.
If he dies, please send me a private message.
I want to come and watch.”
“I’m staying in this livestream today.
I must see him die!”
The Blue Star Live conference room fell silent as well.
After a long time, Zheng Ke said, “Let’s switch to another live stream and see how Bo Jingshan and the others are doing.”
They couldn’t bear to watch this live stream anymore.
After narrowly escaping danger, why isn’t He Yu trying to leave? He even fell asleep?
Is he waiting for death?!
They didn’t want to see a Blue Star contestant die, so they left.
There was almost no barrage in He Yu’s live room, but if you looked at the number of viewers in the upper left corner, you would find that the number was very surprising, higher than some of the outstanding main contestants!
Moreover, the number representing the number of viewers has been jumping, indicating that a large number of people are constantly coming in and going out.
After all, he is currently the only person who is sleeping on the head of a dangerous giant fish.
Someone entered the live room and asked, “Is he still sleeping?”
Someone in the barrage replied, “…yes, still sleeping.”
That person left.
Two hours later, he came back and asked, “Is he still sleeping?!”
The barrage replied, “Yes, he hasn’t even moved.
If the live broadcast wasn’t still on, we would suspect he was already dead.”
That person: “…”
Even in the Blue Star’s live broadcast conference room, the leaders kept switching screens.
They looked at other contestants, but always ended up switching back to see if He Yu was still lying down…
This person… he’s poisonous!!
On the chat square of ‘Top Stream Competition,’ a topic quietly emerged–
#It’s been two hours and he’s still sleeping… when he wakes up, kick me, thank you.#
2L: It’s been two hours and five minutes, and he’s still sleeping.
3L: Two hours and ten minutes, still sleeping.
4L: What are you guys talking about? Can you explain?
5L: Link: He Yu’s live broadcast room.
Go and see for yourself.
6L: I just watched it and was shocked.
Please kick me too when he wakes up.
321L: He finally woke up!!
322L: Is it worth your attention for someone from an unknown junk planet? Haha.
323L: I agree.
Why should we pay attention to a junk planet contestant who doesn’t even have citizenship in the universe? He’s nothing special.
324L: I really don’t understand why the organisers invited these junk contestants from junk planets!
Blue Star residents who were only able to watch but not speak saw someone calling Blue Star an “unknown garbage star” and were so angry that their faces turned green.
However, Blue Star still does not have citizenship in the universe and can’t even engage in debates!
In a dormitory on Blue Star.
Zhang Yu slammed the table in anger, “Why do these people mock us Blue Star?”
“There’s nothing we can do, they are universe citizens and just think they are superior! I really hope we have a contestant from Blue Star who can slap their faces and vent our anger!”
His roommate took a deep breath and said, “Take a look at Bo Jingshan, Zhao Pingqi, and Gao Jianming’s live broadcast rooms.
They have a good chance of making a name for themselves.”
One is a special forces soldier, one is a boxing champion, and the other is a serial killer, all of whom are people they are more optimistic about.
Although the latter has a terrible personality and entering this competition is another kind of torture for him, in terms of ability, he should be able to go further than many of the Blue Star players.
Zhang Yu hesitated for a moment before saying, “Or maybe we should just look at He Yu first? He’s awake now, and I want to see how he reacts…”
His fingers swiftly switched screens, muttering to himself, “Don’t be fooled by He Yu’s current popularity, he probably can’t even pass the preliminaries.”
Zhang Yu sighed, “The giant fish is about to descend, and He Yu… sigh, it’s a pity that he was so agile in dodging the previous two descents, but alas, it’s too bad.”
He shook his head, almost certain that He Yu was in danger.
After lying down for five hours, He Yu opened his eyes when the giant fish was about to dive into the sea.
The audience had been waiting for him for five hours, and the sunk cost was too high.
As a result, just five minutes after he opened his eyes, a large number of viewers flooded into his live stream, and the number of viewers skyrocketed, even directly causing the cover of He Yu’s live stream room to appear in the middle of the selection area.
With so many contestants in the ‘Top Stream Competition’, when viewers browse through the live stream covers, countless ones appear in front of them.
The more viewers and support a person has, the larger and more central their cover appears, making it easier for others to notice.
And those with fewer viewers and lower support are squeezed into countless small corner covers and must be zoomed in to be found.
In the audition, there is no need for viewers to vote, so the size of the cover is determined only by the number of viewers.
The position of He Yu’s live room is in the third circle layer, with many famous contestants in the middle, but even this position is enough for many contestants to dream of!
The leader of the Blue Star has a very complicated mood, yes, they also switched over after He Yu opened his eyes.
-Curiosity, it’s just irresistible curiosity.
On the screen, He Yu sat quietly on the head of the giant fish.
Then, he took out the ‘not very useful’ glasses that he had taken off, and slowly put them on.
His posture was too calm and elegant as if he was not on the head of the giant fish at all, but leisurely at home.
General Ye Kaijun looked anxious as he couldn’t help but urge, “Quickly escape! It’s already five o’clock in the afternoon, and the giant fish is about to enter the sea!”
Beside him, Wei Jiaguo pursed his lips, loosening his clenched fist due to nervousness, his voice hoarse.
“He can’t hear us…”
General Ye Kaijun’s expression immediately stiffened, and then he let out a long sigh and sat down helplessly.
He put on his glasses and straightened his hair and clothes.
His fair and smooth skin, delicate and attractive face, and perfect facial features combined with a pair of frameless delicate glasses made him suddenly seem to be glowing, and when he was expressionless, he was extremely cold.
The five hours of rest just now made him feel much better from the pulled muscles.
And he also discovered a problem –
The bullet comments (a popular feature on Chinese streaming platforms where users can send real-time comments that appear on the screen) are not always visible, but rather random.
For example, at the moment, he cannot see the content of the bullet comments.
However, this is not important, as He Yu probably knows what they are saying.
At 5 pm, the giant fish goes into the sea, and the bullet comments are filled with messages hoping for He Yu’s death –
“Waiting for this person to die, haha, he didn’t know how to escape in the previous five hours, he deserves it.”
“I wish for his death too.”
“This person is useless, die quickly, I want to go watch the livestream of the mechanical star Eugene!”
They were convinced that He Yu was going to die.
The giant fish completely submerged into the sea, with more than half of He Yu’s body submerged in water.
If he went down a bit more, he wouldn’t be able to stay stable on the head of the giant fish!
—The giant fish would discover him.
At this moment, a sharp light flashed in He Yu’s eyes.
He suddenly took off the buckle of the belt on his jeans, gripped it, stabbed it down, and stabbed it into the flesh of the giant fish.
He knocked out a small piece of meat the size of his thumb and threw it out with force.
“Bang!” With a soft sound, a small ripple was splashed on the water’s surface not far away.
Zheng Ke suddenly stood up and looked at the screen incredulously.
“Has he gone crazy?! Is he provoking the giant fish?!!”
Author’s note: He Yu (adjusting his glasses): In a world of provocation, you will soon understand.
Fancy and useless glasses: Hello everyone, long time no see!
