The world of modern entertainment industry (2)
Facing Ren Ling’s question, Lin Xiaotang glanced at him calmly: “I don’t want to sleep.”
Her voice was calm, without any emotional ups and downs.
After hearing her words, Ren Ling was stunned for a moment.
In his impression, Lin Xiaotang has always been introverted and well-behaved and rarely behaves like this.
Could this be a period of rebellion…..or did something happen to her at school?
Looking at Lin Xiaotang who was silent, Ren Ling rubbed his aching brows, as if, he wanted to say something.
But maybe because he was too tired, he moved his lips and in the end he just sighed and said, “I’m going to bed, you should rest early too.”
Lin Xiaotang didn’t answer.
She sat there quietly, like a lifeless puppet.
He didn’t know if it was his illusion or the lighting was too dim, Ren Ling always felt that the girl in front of him was a little different.
If the former Lin Xiaotang was simply gloomy and withdrawn, then the current Lin Xiaotang is more suitable to be described as mysterious.
In addition to this mystery, it seems that there are other unknown and more terrifying existences lurking.
If Ren Ling’s mental state was normal, then he must be able to perceive the strangeness in Lin Xiaotang.
It’s a pity that all kinds of things during the day have exhausted Ren Ling and by night, he really doesn’t have the energy to pay attention to his sister who is behaving strangely.
After pouring her a cup of hot water and placing a plush blanket by her side, Ren Ling dragged his exhausted body and returned to his room.
However, what Ren Ling didn’t realize was that at the moment he closed the door, Lin Xiaotang, who was sitting motionless on the sofa, suddenly moved.
She turned her head and looked at his back quietly.
In the darkness, a strange color flowed from her deep eyes.
On the other side, after returning to the room, Ren Ling fell heavily on the bed.
His gentle looking face faded just now, revealing a face of tiredness and confusion.
When he was in front of Lin Xiaotang before, he still held on and he didn’t behave in the slightest.
But when no one was there, those painful memories flooded up like a tide.
Three days ago, a bunch of black material about him suddenly broke out on the Internet.
Beating assistants, bullying peers, playing big names, being taken care of by a rich woman……These contents, together with a few vague candid pictures, were instantly uploaded on the Internet.
Faced with these rumors, Ren Ling did not think about clarifying it.
But just yesterday, his best friend in the circle posted a Weibo accusing him of bad behavior.
At the cusp of the storm, the friend’s betrayal was undoubtedly a sharp blade, which stabbed Ren Ling’s heart ruthlessly.
In the face of such “testimony”, Ren Ling, who has a shallow foundation, has no ability to resist.
The endorsement was withdrawn, the fans were lost and he was hacked by the whole network and was finally abandoned by the company.
In order to prove his innocence, Ren Ling has been running around for these things in recent days.
Facing the indifference and doubts of others, his heart was extremely painful.
He didn’t know what else he could do.
His days of popularity were too short, most of the money was split by the company and he came from an ordinary family.
In the face of the tens of millions of default fees proposed by the spokesperson, he has almost no ability to repay.
Not to mention, he has a sister.
Lin Xiaotang’s academic performance has always been good, he knows it.
She will have a very good future, so he can’t ruin her no matter what.
Ren Ling sometimes even felt that he was standing on the edge of a cliff.
Just a few more steps and he would fall off the edge of the cliff into the endless abyss.
Maybe the surrounding environment is too quiet or maybe he is tired during the day.
After lying on the bed, it didn’t take long for Ren Ling to fall into a dark dream.
In the dream, he dreamed of the scolding of his former fans, the high-flying face of his manager and the phone call of his friend who he couldn’t get through.
But this time, Ren Ling felt something different.
He watched these scenes, not in the pain he always had.
He knew that these pictures were false and he also knew that he was dreaming.
His mind was sober, as if he was still awake.
…..What the fuck is going on?
Ren Ling stared blankly at the dreams around him and then moved his gaze to the agent closest to him.
He tried to walk towards the agent but in the next second, he saw the agent showing an extremely frightened look.
“What are you afraid of?” Ren Ling asked.
The agent in the dream ignored him but continued to look at him with that horrified look that seemed to see something extremely terrifying.
The fear on his face was so obvious that his eyes widened and his entire face showed a hideous deformation.
Seeing that he was so frightened by him, Ren Ling hesitated for a while but finally let the agent go.
…..Ren Ling’s intuition told him that if this continued, the other party might die here because of extreme fear.
He looked away from his agent and looked elsewhere, ready to continue exploring this strange dream.
And while Ren Ling was thinking like this, a familiar voice suddenly sounded behind his ears—
The voice was faint, like a slight icy wind, passing by his ear.
After hearing this, Ren Ling turned around subconsciously and looked towards the source of sound.
Then, Ren Ling froze in place.
He was surprised to find that there was nothing behind him.
The darkness in front of him was a thick black void, as if a huge black hole swallowed everything up.
No sound, no road, no wind and none of those annoying images.
In the entire dream world, there is only a dark night with crimson stars shining.
And his sister Lin Xiaotang, standing in this huge dark vortex, looked at him quietly.
Countless crimson stars surrounded her, dyeing her dark black eyes with a layer of light.
For some reason, after seeing Lin Xiaotang, Ren Ling, who had always been a little uneasy, suddenly calmed down.
He no longer hesitated and walked directly towards Lin Xiaotang.
“Xiaotang, what is this place?”
On the way past, Ren Ling looked at the vast sea of crimson light around her and couldn’t help but ask, “What are these lights?”
“This is the ‘nightmare’ of everyone’s dream .” Lin Xiaotang said.
Her voice was light, showing a sense of ethereal emptiness: “These lights are everyone’s dreams and their most primitive fears.”
Ren Ling was slightly startled, thinking about the state of his manager in his dream just now.
The state of being so terrified that he was almost scared to death was indeed in line with Lin Xiaotang’s words.
“Fear makes us stronger,” Lin Xiaotang continued, “and inborn nightmares are a source of fear.”
The slender girl stretched out her hand and made a move and hundreds of flashing crimson stars flew around her.
Ren Ling only saw Lin Xiaotang lightly tap the light spots with her fingers and then the light spots fell from the air as if they were freed from some restraint.
Eventually, they fell into the palm of his hand.
The moment he touched these light spots, Ren Ling’s eyes went black and countless people’s faces flashed.
In these faces, there are friends who betrayed him, company leaders who gave up on him, strangers who have insulted him online and other artists who once excluded him from the crew….
“I give you their dreams.”
While he was in a daze, Lin Xiaotang’s voice rang in his ears.
In such an extremely quiet environment, her voice showed a bit of inorganic coldness.
“From now on, the fear of these people will be controlled by you.”
The next day, Lin Xiaotang opened his eyes when the alarm clock rang.
She looked at the time, then looked at Ren Ling’s room and found that he was still sleeping.
Because she still had to go to school, Lin Xiaotang didn’t dawdle at home.
She changed clothes, ate something and went out to catch the bus.
She doesn’t know how to use a cell phone, so she doesn’t have one and doesn’t know what happened recently.
But on the bus, through the words of other students, she still learned a lot of news.
“Did you watch the hot search in the morning? Wang Cheng went crazy when he was on the show, do you know?”
“Look at it, it seems that he dreamed something when he was sleeping, right? After waking up, he began to cry and said sorry, all of which were recorded by the camera.”
“It is said that Wang Cheng’s endorsement was originally intended for Ren Ling, right? I don’t know what will happen when this incident happened…..”
Lots of people twitted, discussing the news they just saw.
Lin Xiaotang listened to these words silently, with a very calm expression on her face.
Wang Cheng betrayed his friend at a time when Ren Ling was in danger.
She only handed the dreams of these people to Ren Ling last night.
But she didn’t expect that he would act so quickly.
Can it be said that he deserves to be judged as a “villain” by the system?
Even if he didn’t encounter various incidents later and he wasn’t greatly stimulated by the tragic death of “Lin Xiaotang”, Ren Ling’s ability to fight back was still far stronger than others.
As for whether the effects of those dreams are so strong or not, Lin Xiaotang is not worried.
As the final boss of the horror escape game, it is only her most basic ability to make players have extremely frightening nightmares.
At first, Lin Xiaotang planned to deal with those people by herself.
But after thinking about it, she still chose to hand over the disposal power to Ren Ling and let him take revenge on his own.
After all, she has things to do herself.
The body the system gave her is really too weak.
She had to find a way to become stronger again.
After arriving at the school, Lin Xiaotang came to the original owner’s class according to memory, Class 2 of 3rd year in high school.
She walked to her seat, ignoring the strange eyes of the people around her and sat down calmly.
At this moment, a person suddenly appeared in front of her seat.
A handsome, gentle boy.
“Lin Xiaotang, can we go out and talk?”
Lin Xiaotang raised her head and recognized this person as the original owner’s boyfriend, Xia Zeran.
