Chapter 8: The Interview

Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio  Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio

In Sucheng, a red business car was speeding along the main road.

It left a trail of cars behind.

Xia Xi was in the driver’s seat. She had a high nose bridge and as she raised her head, it revealed a fair and delicate neck. She held the steering wheel tightly with both hands as if she was secretly competing with an invisible enemy.

Fang Heng was shivering in the passenger seat.

He could vaguely feel the killing intent coming from Xia Xi.

She was so wild even when driving!

Fang Heng realized that this body still had some memory loss.

He could no longer remember how he and Xia Xi met, but he clearly remembered that he had always been annoyed with Xia Xi and his attitude towards her was not very good.

It was strange, Xia Xi was quite pretty.

“Have you remembered all the information I sent you last night? You’ll likely be asked about the development of the enterprise, and big companies will be very concerned about this aspect.”

“Fang Heng! I’m talking to you, do you hear me?”

Xia Xi frowned, turned her head to look at Fang Heng and raised her voice by two levels.

“Fang Heng? Why are you always like this? You have to pay more attention to your matters, okay?”

“Do you not want to get out of this for the rest of your life?”

Madam!! Look at the road! Look at the car, okay!

Fang Heng’s face turned even paler.

He was panicking to death, but Fang Heng still maintained his cold and aloof persona on the surface. He said in a deep voice, “I’m listening.”

“With your capabilities, passing the interview shouldn’t be a problem.”

Xia Xi turned her head and carefully observed Fang Heng from the corner of her eyes. “Also, if they ask about the past, control your emotions.”


The car stopped in front of a high-tech building. Fang Heng alighted from the car.

His legs were still a little weak.

Racing gangs were too scary. Fang Heng almost thought that he would lose his life on the way.

Xia Xi was a bit uneasy. She was worried that Fang Heng would lose control of his temper, so she drove the car and followed him for a distance. She pressed the horn twice and poked her head out of the window.

“Do you want me to go with you?”

“No need!”

Fang Heng tried his best to imitate the tone of the original owner of the body.

“Okay, then all the best.”

After watching Xia Xi drive away, Fang Heng heaved a sigh of relief and raised his head.

In the towering technology building, the exquisite logo of the company was hung on the external wall of the building.

A phoenix soared into the sky. Every feather was meticulously crafted and looked lifelike under the sunlight.

It must have cost a fortune.

“Phoenix Sound Gaming Company…”

Fang Heng muttered to himself.

The original owner of the body had investigated Phoenix Sound Gaming Company.

In the game, players’ talent skills were not fixed.

When a character reached level 10, he could receive his first talent enhancement.

Players needed to find their talent enhancement plan in the game to level up.

Talent enhancement plan levels varied from E-S.

S-level talent enhancement plan was also extremely rare!

According to the data released annually by the federal government, the number of players who successfully obtained and completed the S-level talent enhancement plan each year was less than 10.

But the Phoenix Sound Gaming Company had the highest level, the S-level talent enhancement plan mission!

The owner of this body had wanted to obtain Phoenix Sound Gaming Company’s S-level talent enhancement plan before!

Fang Heng scratched his head.

Then, scenes of his memories surfaced in his mind.

Ever since he was kicked out by the club, Fang Heng had also tried to look for a job.

Because of the highly publicized and sensational match-fixing incident, any gaming company and club that had done a little background work would be aware of Fang Heng’s character.

The resumes that Fang Heng handed out were almost like stones dropped into the ocean, never to be seen or heard again. He was even ridiculed by some gaming companies when they replied to his resume.

Phoenix Sound Gaming Company, office on the 17th floor.

Fang Heng sat on a stool.

Opposite him were two men and a woman.

The three of them were from the management of Phoenix Sound Gaming Company, as well as the interviewers.

The man sitting in the middle looked to be about fifty to sixty years old. His back was straight and his clothes were neatly arranged without a single wrinkle. He was also in good spirits.

He was Pan Guanglin, the game technical director of Phoenix Sound Gaming Company. He was in charge of the company’s in-house game technology.

The woman sitting on his left was about forty years old. She gave off a shrewd and capable feeling.

The middle-aged man on the right was hugging his arms. He did not even lift his eyelids from beginning to end. It was as if he was asleep.

It was strange. Even though he was wearing a suit, he still gave off a sense of cynicism.

The female assistant secretary introduced him.

“Fang Heng, a former member of an A-class gaming guild club. He has been exposed to gaming competitions since high school. He has trained for more than ten years and has survived in the zombie apocalypse game for more than two years. He has an initial talent related to the zombie apocalypse game. His talent level is S…”

Pan Guanglin nodded repeatedly.

It was the first time they met and he had a pretty good impression of Fang Heng.

Yesterday, the zombie apocalypse in the King of Gods’ game had opened District 8, and all the gaming companies had taken action upon hearing the news. Phoenix Sound Gaming Company was also in urgent need of talents in this field.

Not to mention that Fang Heng was personally introduced by President Qin.

Four years after graduation, Qin Shuran won the trust of her family and underwent training to gain experience for her family business. This time, she even acquired two gaming companies and merged them to establish Phoenix Sound Gaming Company to enter the gaming industry.

For a time, she created a huge commotion in Sucheng. It was as if she wanted to compete for the top position.

Pan Guanglin was still very impressed with Qin Shuran. He said, “Since you are recommended by President Qin, it shouldn’t be a problem.”

“Huh? Exempted from the interview?”

“Xia Xi was so highly revered?”

Fang Heng was surprised.

Xue Yuling said, “Fang Heng, I have another question I want to ask.”

“Mr Fang Heng, I’m very curious why you chose to leave the club.”

Fang Heng felt that the other party was not friendly. He glanced at Xue Yuling and replied, “Personal reasons.”

“Can you explain it in detail?”

“Personal reasons. I don’t want to talk about these things.”

Pan Guanglin realized something.

“President Xue seems to be very concerned about this issue?”

Xue Yuling took out her phone and flipped through an article on it. She handed a piece of text to Pan Guanglin, who was sitting in the middle.

“Director Pan, take a look at this first.”

On the phone was a report about Fang Heng.

Match-fixing? Internal discord?

All kinds of negative information about Fang Heng made Pan Guanglin’s face darken.

He was upright, and could not accept corruption or violence in a person’s character.

In Pan Guanglin’s view, Fang Heng was eliminated due to his involvement in match-fixing.

The company could not accept such a person!

Pan Guanglin put down the phone.

“Mr Fang Heng, please explain. If you can’t give a reasonable explanation, our company will not welcome you.”

Xue Yuling looked at Fang Heng with a smug expression. She was here to reveal Fang Heng’s true colours.

The company had taken a keen interest in the newly established business department. In addition to the sudden opening of District 8 in the game, the newly established gaming department had become a hot topic in the company.

Countless pairs of eyes in the company were looking at this place.

Including Xue Yuling, her nephew had also participated in this interview.

Unfortunately, Fang Heng was in her way.

Fang Heng stared at Xue Yuling without saying a word. He felt inexplicably unhappy in his heart.

“What did I do to offend her?”

There was no such person in his memory.

Pan Guanglin’s face was expressionless. When he saw that Fang Heng didn’t answer, he said in a low voice, “I’m sorry, Fang Heng. I made you come here for nothing. I’ll explain this matter to President Qin personally.”

As he was speaking, the office door was suddenly pushed open.

“President Qin.”

Pan Guanglin and the others stood up at the same time.

President Qin?

Fang Heng also turned around when he heard that. He looked at the woman who walked in through the door and subconsciously stood up as well.

He saw a familiar face.

Qin Shuran?

She was Xia Xi’s friend?

“President Qin, I happen to have something to report to you…”

A surprised voice interrupted Pan Guanglin’s words.

“Fang Heng? Why is it you?”


Fang Heng turned his head and looked at the person beside Qin Shuran.


Fang Heng never thought that he would meet a player who had gone through thick and thin in the game here.


The skinny old man, Jimmy, laughed loudly. He looked very happy and walked up to pat Fang Heng on the shoulder, then turned back to look at Qin Shuran.

“So everything is part of President Qin’s plan. This is the big surprise you mentioned just now, right? No wonder my friend is so impressed with Phoenix Sound Gaming Company. Hahaha, I’m very satisfied with your efficiency.”

Everyone was baffled when they heard Jimmy’s words.

They only knew that Jimmy was here to discuss a partnership on behalf of a foreign joint venture company. Phoenix Sound Gaming Company valued this partnership very much.

This kid knew Jimmy?

And it sounded like they were very familiar with each other.

Xue Yuling felt like the matter was already out of her control.

Pan Guanglin was smart enough to shut his mouth.

Qin Shuran’s beautiful eyes quickly swept over Fang Heng. She gave the secretary a look and said, “Mr Jimmy, as long as you’re satisfied. You don’t have much time in the real world. Let’s talk about cooperation first.”

“Okay, okay. Let’s talk about cooperation first.”

Jimmy was very happy. He nodded repeatedly.

Last night, Jimmy had personally witnessed Fang Heng’s powerful abilities in the game.

Among other things, just the food alone was enough to make him drool.

Jimmy wore a smile on his face.

Well, at least he won’t go hungry in the game anymore!
