Chapter 76: Since You Believe in Me, I Shall Bleed for You

Let us rewind time to one hour before the start of Ye Fei’s broadcast.
While everyone was waiting in silence, a fan suddenly threw up a line of  ‘!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’ followed by a shocked face emoji.
Everyone frowned : Hey, has this guy gone crazy?
While everyone was pondering over this person’s mental state, a message popped up on the screen.
— QQ Platform just sent out a notification! Deity Ye will broadcast in one hour!
At this, everyone nearly busted a gut laughing.
“Pffft, brother, are you still half asleep?”
“I think this guy is sleepwalking. Deity Ye broadcasting? Are you kidding?”
“That’s right, if Deity Ye wants to broadcast, he would definitely do it at 12 noon or after 6pm. That’s the time when people have a break or have gotten off work. These are the times when there are more viewers.”
“What’s a broadcaster’s most important goal? Isn’t it make money? What’s the best way to make money? Isn’t it to build a strong fan base? I’m not a broadcaster, but after watching a couple of live broadcasts, even I could understand this basic philosophy.”
“I think so too. A broadcaster who can’t make money is not a good broadcaster.”
While everyone was giving their  two mao about what being a good broadcaster was about, another fan rushed forward to throw a huge startled face emoji.
“F*ck! Ye Fei is really going to broadcast. I was just at QQ Platform’s homepage and saw the news!”
“Me too! I saw it too! Deity Ye says that the purpose of this broadcast is to show his gratefulness to fans who had showered him with love. That he specifically says that he will broadcast in one hour.”
“F*ck, now this is a true broadcaster, ah.”
“For fans who had showered him with love? Wait, could it be possible that Deity Ye found out about our free reward for him?”
“Deity Ye is a truly conscientious broadcaster. From here onwards, I pledge to be his most loyal fan.”
The ones who were most excited about Ye Fei’s broadcast were actually the staff members of Fine Food Section. When Feng Tianlai informed them that Ye Fei intends to start broadcasting in an hour, they all thought that Feng Tianlai was joking.
“Supervisor, do you think Deity Ye is a bit too… His usual broadcast time has always been around 12. Why is he broadcasting at 4 o’clock?”
“That’s right, ah. No one will watch it, ah. Most of the people would still be working at this time.”
Feng Tianlai said, “Deity Ye said that this broadcast is specially created for those fans who supported him in the background.”
Liu Ping sighed, “They say that people became broadcasters to make money. Only now did I know that broadcasters who create content for the sake of their fans also exist. Deity Ye, ah. From now on, I, Liu Ping, is one of your most loyal fans.”
“Me too, this kind of broadcaster really do deserve to be liked. To create not for profit or popularity, but for their fans.”
Tang Xiaomin looked like she was about to cry, saying, “I suddenly realised that I have fallen in love with Deity Ye. I wonder, does he have a girlfriend? If not, I am willing to dedicate my monthly salary to him and chase after him, ah.”
When the male compatriots of the Fine Food Section heard this, they nearly fainted.
“Xiaomin, my goddess, ah. Don’t be like this, if you do this all the male staff members will go crazy.”
“Min Min, to tell the truth, I have had a crush on you for the longest time but never dared to tell you. If I don’t confess today, I think I will regret it forever. Won’t you be my girlfriend?”
“Be my girlfriend instead. I have a car, a house and even a bed.”
Tang Xiaomin looked at the group of wolf-like male colleagues and silently raised her middle singer. Her sexy little lips spat out one word.
“Ye Fei will be broadcasting in an hour? Is this true?”
“It’s true. Feng Tianlai had already registered the time and a notice had been put up on the announcement page.”
“F*ck, has Ye Fei gone crazy? It will be 4 o’clock in one hour, ah. Only ghosts would broadcast at this hour, ah?”
“That’s right, ah. Aside from us and a few other broadcasters, the rest are all at work, ah.”
“Any broadcaster with some brains would never pick this time to broadcast. After all, they need viewers to earn money and become popular. There is really no point to perform to an empty space.”
“I think that the past few days’ success had gone into Ye Fei’s head. The young are immature after all and cared not for either heaven or earth. If he really broadcasts at 4 o’clock, he will quickly realise what a stupid decision that is.”
“Well, I happen to be free today. I’ll go and see just how this Ye Fei will take this hit.”
At the Silver Rankers Forum, the mob of Silver Rankers were all stunned.
“Broadcast at 4? F*ck me, has that fellow lost it?”
“Well, a noob’s a noob after all. Only a noob can’t figure out the basic principles of live broadcasting. Who would be so free as to watch a live broadcast at that time, ah? Everyone would be at work.”
“How insane he must be to dare do this, ah?”
“His last few days’ results were too dazzling, I think he must have let the dazzle get into his head. Today, I want to see just how he takes the defeat. Daddy didn’t even have to do anything. Ye Fei, I’m going to wait for your 4 o’clock show. I want to see just how you end up.”
“Everything else aside, if this guy’s reward could reach even half of yesterday’s, daddy will give him a luxury cruise ship.”
“Me too, this little bratling has been acting up all day with no sense of boundaries.”
Yijing Garden, 9th Floor, No. 905.
A question was pinging busily inside Ye Fei’s mind. After saying goodbye to Ma Cuihua, he rushed back to his room and turned on the laptop. While  waiting for the broadcast time to arrive, he mentally asked, “System, why did you not deduct any service fee from the 300,000 yuan this time?”
DCB System’s voice was icy, “Service fees are only charged when the Host broadcasts. The 300,000 yuan free reward was awarded when Host was not online, therefore it is considered the Host’s personal property. The System will not extract service fees from it.”
When Ye Fei heard this, he was very excited. “That is to say, so long as it is free reward from fans, you will not deduct anything, right?”
“Awesome! Finally found the best way to get rich! From now on, daddy will go online for 2 days in a row and disappear on the 3rd day!”
DCB System, “… If the Host maliciously defrauds free reward, the System will stop all broadcasts for a year.”
Ye Fei, “… I’m just saying, it’s not like I would ever do such a despicable thing to my dear fans. In fact, with such dedicated fans, even if you allow it, I would never do it. Anyway, anyway, we’re about to start broadcasting soon, right? What ingredient will we be using?”
“F*ck me, I’m already a Level 2 broadcaster, can’t you at least give me a hint?”
The Divine Culinary Broadcasting System remained silent.
Ye Fei scratched his head dejectedly. He turned to the laptop and entered his channel.
As soon as his username lighted up, the entire broadcasting channel exploded.
“F*ck, f*ck, f*ck, it’s really Deity Ye!”
“The platform didn’t lie, Deity Ye is really online!”
“Deity Ye, please broadcast.”
“I want to see how you cook mutton.”
“Deity Ye, can you make any cuisine with tea? I want to eat some.”
“Upstairs, I’ll give you a Tea Egg .”
“Scram, I want to eat Tea Jelly.”
While the crowd were cheerfully quarrelling amongst themselves, a majestic luxury cruise ship suddenly sailed across the screen.
There was no need to check just who this lordly person was.
8-Treasure Cuisine, “Do none of you understand why Deity Ye is here now? I dare say that he must have had something important to do but chose to start broadcasting because QQ Platform had informed him what happened during his absence and he returned especially just to broadcast for us. Brothers, this is the perfect example of a conscientious broadcaster, ah. Really, I have never seen a broadcaster who treats their fans with such sincerity. Today, daddy will not put a limit on my reward!”
I Am a Foodie, “In fact, I mostly watch live broadcasts just for a fun and toss some little treats for those people because I understand they are all out to make a living. However, today is the day that I finally realised that there are such broadcasters as Ye Fei. A broadcaster who broadcasts not for fame but for fans! Deity Ye, I admire you! Today’s rewards will have no upper limit!”
Once the live broadcast started, Tasting Everything Under Heaven could finally speak and yelled out excitedly, “Deity Ye! Since you believe in us brothers so much, today, I shall bleed for you!”
Tao Tie also chimed in, “My business is not large, but I have already prepared 300,000 yuan. Deity Ye, it is all because of you.”
Firecracker Not Cracker, “I have prepared 10,000 earlier, but I have decided to push the limits all the way to 100,000! In the future, I shall be your copper fan, iron fan and shiny stainless steel fan in the future!”
Ye Fei was so touched that he was nearly in tears. Looking at all the chats flying back and forth on the channel, he smiled and said, “Brothers, I have nothing more to add. Let us start the broadcast.”
With that, he left his laptop and made his way to the kitchen.
When he reached the kitchen, he could already see that new labels had already appeared on the special cabinet.
Ye Fei came to a stop in front of the cabinet. He spent some time just staring at the labels. Finally, he pulled the compartment open. At the sight of the contents, he nearly fell on the ground.
Inside his mind, he frantically howled at the DCB System, “System! You come out, ah! You want daddy to use this thing today?!”
