Chapter 38: Lingyou Live Broadcast Record (2)
一块塑料公告牌上写着：本地野生麻雀有抢食行为, 请游客注意。下面还画了几幅小漫画, 表示不建议游客做的动作, 会引起怎样后果。
A bulletin board wrote: the local wild sparrows have predatory behavior of snatching food, tourists please take note. There were also a few comic strips illustrated below to show what kind of consequences could happen, indicating the tourists not to do such acts.
Bai He stood in front of the bulletin board and started his live broadcast. The number of viewers shot up instantly.
“Hello everyone, I am Bai He…” Bai He faced the camera lens and waved, “Everyone came so fast, did all of you saw my post?”
The bullet screen only showed laughing comments.
“That is of course…after the screen turned black, I have been swiping for a post.”
“Swiping for a post is just one out of swiping for a live broadcast and Weibo. Is your phone okay hahahahaha.”
“Yesterday was really too tragic, I’ve never expected your phone to die instantly!”
“I am dying of laughter, this is the first time I’m witnessing such a method to end a live broadcast. I am simply taken by surprise.”
“It is not too much to say that the sparrows here are fucking great!”
“Is yesterday’s live broadcast recorded? Begging for the video.”
“Saw the post only to realise that I’ve missed such an entertaining traffic accident, I have specially come here to see more!”
When Bai He was live broadcasting yesterday, he had accidentally dropped his phone and damaged it. Repairing it would take a few days and also costly too, so he could only publish a post and explained how he went to buy a new phone immediately, rebook his ticket, and challenge the zoo again today.
白诃这一摔也算摔红了，很多人知道这件事, 还知道他今天要再战，特意蹲守他说的时间点，跑来围观, 导致今天一开播，人数就蹭蹭蹭涨到了十万人。
That stumble of his was could be considered a stumble into stardom. When many people knew about this incident and how he was going to challenge the zoo again, they had especially taken note of the designated time he had stated and came to watch him, leading to the number of viewers rising to a hundred thousand at the start of his broadcast.
At this moment, Bai He adjusted the camera lens to face the bulletin board and said, “After yesterday’s tragic incident, I realised that there was a warning here. Come, everyone says this with me three times.”
After Bai He had repeated it three times, he wiped his tears. “Considered that I was seeking death yesterday, but I wouldn’t today. Today I will not feed the sparrows.”
The netizens were unhappy:
“Hhhhhhhh, the anchor is running away from difficulties!”
“Why aren’t you feeding? I came here to see you play with birds.”
“As Mr. Lu Xun said, wherever you have fallen is wherever you should fall again, Brother, go!”
“I’ll not feed them this time round no matter what, I’m holding a selfie stick, it’s easy for accidents to happen.” Bai He mumbled, “If I fall again, do I still need to be a man anymore?”
Once this sentence was out, many people in the broadcast start giving gifts to Bai He.
“Everyone, let’s fund Bai He to drop his phone again.”
“What about medical expenses?” Bai He showed the redness on his skin caused by the peckings. “Do all of you know the feeling of being surrounded by sparrows? Yesterday, I went to ask the locals, they said that those sparrows seem to be getting wilder every time the tourists fed them. Some were even in a worse state than myself and I have to go to the tourist service center to apply for medicine.”
After receiving a wave of concerns comments, Bai He went to buy bread. This time he followed the proper method by breaking off the bread into pieces first in the shop, put them into a bag before he headed out. He then adjusted the selfie stick, adjusted the angle before he started feeding.
“I am practically using my life to feed sparrows…” Bai He said as he carefully threw the breadcrumbs outwards. As soon as the sparrows flew over, he would nervously move backward to hide.
Many comments expressed that this was the first they saw a person feeding birds like he was walking on a minefield.
One only learned from one’s mistakes, this time, Bai He had finished feeding a bag of breadcrumbs without being attacked, so he lifted his phone in extreme satisfaction. “Will this do? This time, isn’t it stable? Perfectly evaded!”
The netizens all lamented at him, look at this proud expression, those who didn’t know might have thought that feeding sparrows were a world championship contest.
“There’s a map here. Which Exhibition Area should we go next?” Bai He showed the map to everyone and they used the bullet screen to express their suggestions. The Birds Exhibition Area had the most demand.
This place’s sparrows and the parrot had left a deep impression on them, naturally, they wanted to see other birds.
After entering the Birds Exhibition Area, one could see another world behind the glass wall. It had been decorated with various kinds of green plants making it akin to a miniature jungle with dozens of birds flying around.
What was the most eye-catching were the two peacocks crouching on the branch. Their size was astonishing huge with their long tail feathers resting behind them and to be spread, but it could still give off an indistinct feeling of resplendence.
“The decorations here are pretty good.” Bai He read the rules and found out that if he paid another twenty dollars, he would be able to go into the Exhibition Area for fifteen minutes with a batch of people at one time.
According to the locals, it used to be free of charge last time, but because too many people wanted to go in, the zoo started charging fees.
Bai He came in the early afternoon and it was less crowded than yesterday, but there was still a group of people waiting in front. Since Bai He was already here, he would naturally choose to buy the ticket.
Bai He waited for twenty minutes before it was his turn. He put on the disposable raincoat, took his phone and went in. Before he went in, he even verified with the staff that the birds inside were different from the sparrows and not aggressive.
The staff member expressed that the birds were definitely not aggressive, but you shouldn’t look for trouble when no one was looking, for example, plucking the peacock’s feathers and so on. If caught, there would be no room for discussion for the penalty.
Would Bai He dare to? He was already scared.
Stepping into this enormous enclosure, Bai He cautiously approached those birds. He realised that these birds didn’t have any seam of fear towards humans, perhaps they had been interacting with humans since young. A Zebra Finch even tentatively hopped on his shoulder.
Bai He held his breathing and aimed the camera at himself and the bird on his shoulder. He lowered his voice unawarely, “The fuck, did you see it? It flew onto my shoulder on its own!”
The Zebra Finch stepped on Bai He’s shoulder, it glanced to the left and right for a while before it snuggled towards his head, sticking out its round butt and used its beak to comb his hair.
Bai He: “…This bird is too adorable, my heart is going to melt. It’s extremely soft!”
The bullet screen was getting more comments rapidly:
“This is too cute? So initiative!”
“It’s really soft, I really want to touch it!”
“I am actually getting sweetness because of a human and a bird’s interaction…”
“These sparrows outside are really demons, what species is this cute bird?”
“Should be a Zebra Finch… It is very cute.”
Bai He carefully guided the Zebra Finch to his palm, with the hand holding it, he lifted it in the air and captured this sight against the sunlight. “Fuck, doesn’t it look like it’s emitting holy light?”
“Yes, yes, yes!”
“I’m done for, I stand HeZhen CP for a second!”
“The anchor is sick 233333.”
“Feel like he would ascend anytime.”
When Bai He filmed upward, the two peacocks behind also entered the lens, so even he himself didn’t expect to capture this sight——
The two peacocks flapped their wings and flew down from the branch. With their long tails trailing behind them, they flew to the front of the trough at the corner of the enclosure.
“What the fuck!” Only to hear Bai He cursed, and the camera lens quickly followed the peacocks’ track as they hovered in the air1.
Both of their wings were extremely wide after opening and had taken almost everyone’s sight. When they flapped their wings, their colorful feathers were lush and charming. Their tail feathers would also slightly open in the air and it some of the lusters within were revealed. Finally, they landed and closed their wings, hiding their lustre. Their tail feathers then slowly flood out and spread apart, reflecting the sunshine as they held the head high. It was extremely breathtaking.
The bullet screen instantly exploded.
“What the fuck was that? Mother, did I saw phoenixes?”
“This is too beautiful ah ah ah ah ah!”
“They look like phoenix ah!!”
“They really look like phoenixes, it is really beautiful when a peacock flies!”
In the face of such a sight, Bai He was even more shocked. Although it was only around ten seconds, the whole of him went blank and he could also hear the malevolence coming from other tourists. Bai He couldn’t be bothered about the Zebra Finch and faced his camera lens at the peacocks.
The moment those two peacocks went to the trough, those birds that were originally drinking water moved away from all at once, and no one felt that anything was wrong.
“Domineering! The True· Kings of Hundred Birds’ aura!”
“Give the hell out for this Lao Niang2 233333.”
“They are peacocks, but calling them Lao Niang doesn’t seem out of sorts ha ha ha ha ha.”
Bai He filmed the two peacocks using the remaining of his allocated time, however, it was a pity that he didn’t get to see them spread their tails. He heard from the people next to him that these two peacocks were especially beautiful when they opened their tails, and their positions in the Birds Exhibition Area were in the top 2 with no distinction to their position.
The bullet screen was once again full of smearing.
“These two peacocks did a py transaction.”
“Still no distinction to their position…”
“Brother, it sounds gay.”
“Single for three years, peacock wins over Dian Chan3.”
Bai He wasn’t clear about the pattern of which when they would open their tails, so when it was time, he could only leave with regrets, but he was also perfectly contented to say, “Which Exhibition Area should we go next? That scene just now… twenty dollars was simply too worth it.”
The comments from the bullet screen wanted Bai He to walk according to the order, and many of them were still immersed in shock from the sight of the peacocks flying.
So Bai He went to the Reptile Zone, and with a glance, there were three large pythons.
One was entirely white, another was golden and there was also a green one. The white and green pythons were both coiled on the tree while the golden one was laying on one corner.
The moment they see this combination, some of the netizens that saw the news began to recall:
“Isn’t this the green and white snake with Fahai from recently? So it’s from this zoo?”
“I also remembered this contrast. I’m drowning in laughter, this zoo knows how to play.”
“So it’s here, 66666.”
“What the fuck, I just realised this is the home of Great Immortal White Fox! That green and the white snake is from the zoo where Great Immortal White Fox is staying!”
“Great Immortal White Fox’s home? Really? Begging to see Great Immortal White Fox!”
“That White Fox is really… too metaphysics! I used to believe in science until I forwarded it…”
Bai He really didn’t know what Great Immortal White Fox was until he saw what was on the screen and said, “There’s still such a thing? Then I will bring all of you to worship the Great Immortal White Fox.”
He talked as he walked, “I only casually bought a coupon ticket but this zoo is so 6. This coupon ticket is worth it.
The number of viewers was getting more and more and had long surpassed the number of viewers for yesterday’s live broadcast at Liushui Temple even though Bai He came for Linshui Temple. This was really an unintentional positive outcome.
Bai He followed the map and walked to the Cannies Zone and suddenly grew elated.
Two young people were chatting at the entrance. One of them should be an animal keeper, there was even a bucket in his hands, the other one was hilarious, there was a big red bird of an unknown species on his shoulder. Looking at its size, claws, and expression, it seemed to be a little ferocious. At his foot, a puppy was playing with his shoes and sticking its butt out from time to time as it chewed at the tip.
Bai He: “I might have seen a profligate son of the rich carrying an eagle and walking a dog ah.”
“What goddamn carrying an eagle and walking a dog…”
“That’s enough 233333. This is an eagle? And that dog hasn’t stop weaning all right!”
“That little Gege’s side profile is so handsome, he even knows how to keep birds and dogs. A little fond of him!”
“Very handsome + 1, begging for his front face.”
In order to satisfy the female netizens, he especially changed his angle to film that person.”
So the hundred thousand viewers watched as the handsome lad with a bird on his shoulder turned around to look at Bai He who was too obvious about it.
“He’s handsome, he’s handsome!!”
“He’s even more handsome, anchor hurry go and flirt!”
“The one that says flirt, enough…”
Seeing the numerous comments shooting up on the screen, Bai He smiled at that person. “Hello-” He walked over there, “-I am currently doing a live broadcast, can I shoot your bird and dog?”
After doing live broadcasting for so long, Bai He’s face had also thickened up, otherwise, how was he going to do all these embarrassing plays outside?
Duan Jiaze who was very easy going about it and nodded. “It’s fine, are you doing live broadcasting?”
Bai He adjusted the camera lens and let him see the screen.
Duan Jiaze took a look. “Woah, very high popularity-” When he saw those comments complimenting him for being handsome, he smiled and greeted, “-thank you, hello everyone.”
“Are you a zookeeper here?” Bai He asked him.
Duan Jiaze hesitated for a moment. “Not really, however, I am the Yuan Zhang here.”
Bai He didn’t expect the person he struck up a conversation to be a director, so he smiled at the lens, “We’ve met the Yuan Zhang, hahaha, Yuan Zhang, you are very young.”
However, now that he thought about it, if he wasn’t young, he would think of putting the green, white, and yellow pythons together, and even thought of playing with the Great White Fox Immortal’s marketing scheme. This was obviously what a youngster would be able to come up with.
Duan Jiaze smiled. “Still alright.”
Seeing how Bai He’s live broadcast had such high popularity, Duan Jiaze wanted to conveniently make an advertisement, so when Bai He suggested shooting his bird and dog, Duan Jiaze was very cooperative. He carried Luya down from his shoulder and pulled open his wings to show them, “This bird is especially aggressive. Look at this build, I saved it in the wild but had never managed to find out what’s its scientific name is. Even the experts don’t know about it, it might be very rare.”
Luya who was forced to open both of his wings, “…”
The screen was laughing, and the netizens were all saying, “This bird’s eyes flashed”, “The bird wants to beat someone up, hahahaha”, “Yuan Zhang isn’t afraid of getting pecked ah, saying it is especially aggressive while playing with it”, “Yuan Zhang has a certain overbearing aura”, and so on.
Today, two alpacas would be sent here and Luya had never seen an alpaca before. He wanted to see it and refuse to wait until it was night. Seeing that not many people were visiting Luya, so Duan Jiaze carried him out.
Luya never expected that in order to publicize themselves, Duan Jiaze fearlessly exhibited himself to the netizens.
Duan Jiaze fearlessly lifted Luya and shook twice before facing the camera: “Welcome everyone to come to East Sea City to play, if you come, remember to visit Lingyou Zoo, okay, our family’s adorable birdy is waiting for you.”
The screen bullet were all amused:
“Hahahahahaha, the death glare of a big bird.”
“How is this cute? The bird looked like it wanted to kill someone, hahahaha!”
“Did Yuan Zhang had some misunderstanding about the bird he keeps?”
“Hurry wake up Yuan Zhang! Only in your eyes that it’s cute!”
“This is called fierce, Yuan Zhang you are the cute one…”
How could Daojun endure having his image damaged? He angrily messed up Duan Jiaze’s face with his wing and uncooperatively flew away.
Duan Jiaze nonchalantly rubbed his face, carried the dog and joked, “Take a look at our watchdog, it’s super fierce.
Bai He laughed heartily, “It’s really fierce.” This Director is very interesting, the moment he made interactions, the number of viewers in his live broadcast rose again.
However, it was a pity that Duan Jiaze soon received a phone call about the arrival of the alpacas. He hurriedly bid goodbye to Bai He and the netizens but not forgetting to advertise that these newly bought alpacas were here and that the East Sea’s citizens or tourists must remember to come and visit Lingyou.
Bai He and Duan Jiaze then waved at each other as a farewell. As there was still the Great Immortal White Fox with relative fame in the net to be live broadcasted, the number of viewers didn’t drop.
When Bai He walked into the Exhibition Area, he noticed that the atmosphere was very soothing and comparatively peaceful. Everyone spoke softly and slowly, which was unlike a zoo, but more of a museum.
And that Arctic Fox really did seem to be more lovely than other Arctic Foxes, especially when compared to that red fox opposite it, making it looked even more fairyism.
Bai He didn’t really believe in all these, but for the sake of fun, he also worshiped and bowed at the Arctic Fox behind the glass wall. “Great Immortal, Great Immortal bless me, if there is anything good, greet me with it and let me relocated my household. I am too unlucky and just broke my phone yesterday. If this comes true, I will donate money and buy three years worth of Cornetto for Great Immortal.”
In the bullet screen, there were also many viewers worshipping the Great Immortal White Fox remotely and even gifting presents.
However, in Bai He’s opinion, most of them were just doing it for fun. He thought that those who said their luck had changed were just mere coincidence, and it was all small probability events. Anyway, he also forwarded some Weibo messages before but it had never worked.
What he said just now was just running off his mouth to entertain his viewers.
In this Exhibition Area, it was to see the Arctic Fox, while it was indeed lovely, but time seemed to be passing really slowly here. Moreover, he had to talk during his live broadcast and he was unconsciously whispering like the rest, causing the bullet screen to:
“All of a sudden it becomes ASMR…”
“I thought I was listening to ASMR 23333.”
“Falling asleep, falling asleep~”
“Everyone’s starting to talk softly somehow, Great Immortal is mighty.”
Hence after Bai He had walked around for a while, he still decided to go to another Exhibition Area and see something more exciting.
As soon as Bai He stepped out of the Exhibition Area, he received a call from his mother.
“Hello? Xiao He, I just got a call from the community, didn’t they say our house wouldn’t be moved? They suddenly said that our house would still be demolished and will compensate according to the number of people, each person will get more than 800,000 yuan…… “
