Chapter 265 Concert Tickets
In the hotel.
“I didn’t expect Fang Qiu would get so much attention on Weibo.”
Seeing the heated discussion on the Internet, Sister Li couldn’t help but sigh with emotion, “Choosing Fang Qiu to be the guest singer is a powerful move.”
“By the way, you can give several tickets to Fang Qiu later. We can’t let him help with no reward.”
Song Yaqi smiled and said.
“You don’t trust my working ability?”
Sister Li asked, and then said with a smile, “I’ve asked someone to do that. But because it takes some time to get the tickets, they haven’t been sent to Fang Qiu yet. They’re sure to be delivered tonight.”
Song Yaqi nodded.
In Dormitory 501 of the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine, Fang Qiu had thought in bed for an hour.
Zhu Benzheng and the other two finally got out of the bed to take shower after an hour’s shut-eye rest.
Suddenly, Fang Qiu’s cell phone rang.
Taking it out and having a look, Fang Qiu found it was a strange number. He then answered it with confusion.
“Excuse me, is that Mr. Fang Qiu?”
A very polite question came from the other end of the line.
“Yes, it is.”
Fang Qiu nodded and asked back, “Who is that?”
“I’m responsible to deliver your tickets.”
The other side answered, “I’m at the gate of your dormitory. Could you please come downstairs and get the tickets? Or could you please tell me which floor you live on and I’ll send the tickets upstairs to you?”
Fang Qiu was puzzled.
“Tickets for tomorrow’s concert.”
The other side answered.
“Oh, I see.”
Fang Qiu realized and said with a nod, “Don’t bother you to go upstairs. I’ll go downstairs to you now.”
Then, he got up at once and went downstairs.
Arriving at the gate, Fang Qiu saw a young man dressed in ordinary clothes.
Seeing Fang Qiu, the young man immediately came over and asked, “Are you Mr. Fang Qiu?”
It was late at night now. No one was on the streets. Besides, the young man counted that Fang Qiu should appear at the moment, so he took the initiative to come to Fang Qiu and asked.
Fang Qiu nodded.
“Here are your tickets.”
The young man held out his hand, handed a stack of concert tickets to Fang Qiu and said, “There are ten tickets in total, which is as far as we can go.”
“They are enough.”
Fang Qiu replied with a nod, “Please thank Song Yaqi on behalf of me, and also thank you.”
The young man smiled back and said, “Now that you get the tickets, I’ll leave.”
Then, he turned away.
Over there, Fang Qiu took the tickets and began to count as he went upstairs.
No more, no less, exactly ten tickets.
Although they seemed not many, Fang Qiu was very satisfied.
Because he knew how difficult it was to buy a ticket to Song Yaqi’s concert now. Some people who had been waiting before the computer couldn’t even get one ticket. Some went to the Ticket Vending Site to buy. But before their turn, the tickets had been sold out.
In such a hot situation, Song Yaqi could give him ten tickets, which was very generous.
And most importantly, the ten tickets were all the most expensive tickets in the first row.
Such a ticket sold for 2,688 yuan. Ten tickets made 26,000 yuan. And the key there was no chance to buy it.
If Fang Qiu put these ten tickets on the Internet to sell, there was no problem with doubling the price. It was even possible to sell the ten tickets for 100,000 yuan!
The other three had prepared to continue to sleep, but the moment they saw the concert tickets in Fang Qiu’s hand, their eyes immediately lit up.
“What’s in your hand, youngest?”
Sun Hao asked.
“If I’m right…”
Zhou Xiaotian uttered.
“These are the tickets to Song Yaqi’s concert?”
Asked Zhu Benzheng with lights in his eyes.
Fang Qiu nodded.
Sun Hao’s eyes lit up again. He immediately rushed to Fang Qiu and said with a grin, “Youngest, I haven’t seen a concert ticket yet. Let me have a look at them.”
Without thinking much, Fang Qiu directly handed the tickets to Sun Hao.
Taking the tickets, Sun Hao got excited immediately.
Zhou Xiaotian and Zhu Benzheng also hurried to surround.
After looking at the tickets for a short while, the three raised their heads to look at one another, directly took one respectively and put it into the pocket hurriedly without a word.
Upon seeing that, Fang Qiu shook his head with a bitter smile.
“You can’t send them out anyway. We’re helping you.”
After that, Sun Hao handed the rest seven concert tickets in his hand back to Fang Qiu. The three then smiled at each other, and returned to their own desks to recite the Compendium of Materia Medica. They all ignored Fang Qiu, but glanced at Fang Qiu from the corner of their eyes, afraid that Fang Qiu would grab the tickets back.
However, they found Fang Qiu was calm with no intention to rob the tickets back.
Seeing the three, Fang Qiu was speechless.
Did they have to do that?
In fact, Fang Qiu had intended to give them each a ticket.
“Who shall I give the remaining tickets to?”
Fang Qiu murmured secretly.
As a result, he thought of Jiang Miaoyu immediately.
With a smile, he went out with the tickets.
In the dormitory, seeing Fang Qiu going out, the three, who had been pretending to study, jumped up and cheered at once.
“Haha, I can go to a concert.”
Sun Hao said very excitedly, “To be honest, this will be my first time to go to a concert.”
Zhou Xiaotian replied excitedly, too.
Zhu Benzheng scratched his head and said, “How could I have money to buy tickets before? Look at the ticket price. 2,688 yuan is enough for my living expenses in half a semester.”
“Haha, we earn a lot this time.”
Sun Hao rolled his eyes and said, “In fact, I really want to sell the ticket for my living expenses of a semester. But it is given by the youngest. If I sell it out, he must break with me. So, I decided not to sell it and welcome my first time to go to a concert.”
“That’s what I thought at first, too.”
Zhou Xiaotian replied with a grin, “In addition, the youngest will perform in the concert too. Therefore, I’m not willing to sell it. I must support the youngest.”
Then, the two turned to Zhu Benzheng.
Zhu Benzheng asked.
“Aren’t you excited?”
Sun Hao asked back.
“Of course I’m excited. And you won’t believe it, I’m twice as excited as you are!”
He gave a small pinch of the tickets in his hand as he spoke.
And it turned out he had two tickets in his hand!
Seeing this scene, Zhou Xiaotian and Sun Hao got stunned.
Zhu Benzheng made a grin and said, “Have you expected that? I took it especially for Wang Yu.”
Hearing that, Sun Hao and Zhou Xiaotian changed their faces.
They were so regretful that they even felt a stomachache!
If they had known earlier, they would have taken two tickets as well.
The oldest was insidious!
Staring at Zhu Benzheng for a short moment, the other two turned to look at each other, and then opened his mouth and scolded together, “Shame on you!”
“Hey hey, you are jealous of me.”
Zhu Benzheng laughed unconcernedly, and then ran out of the dormitory to give the concert ticket to Wang Yu.
Over there, while leaving the boys’dormitory building with the tickets, Fang Qiu took out his mobile phone and called Jiang Miaoyu.
The phone was connected, and the voice of Jiang Miaoyu came.
“What are you doing?”
Asked Fang Qiu.
“I just got out of the shower, and I’m going to read for a while before going to bed.”
Jiang Miaoyu answered.
“Can you come out?”
Fang Qiu asked again.
“Where to go?”
Jiang Miaoyu got stunned for a moment, and then asked in a somewhat confused tone.
“I’ll wait for you on the road outside your dormitory building.”
Fang Qiu answered and then hung up the phone.
In the girls’ dormitory, Jiang Miaoyu’s face was red.
Without telling her roommates, she took her mobile phone and left the dormitory.
In the dark campus, there was no one. Quietness prevailed.
A high street lamp was erected in the middle of several trees along the road leading to the girls’ dormitory building.
Under the street lamp, Fang Qiu looked left and right.
A little while later, a figure appeared.
It was Jiang Miaoyu!
Seeing her, Fang Qiu immediately walked over.
“It’s late. Why did you ask me out now?”
Seeing Fang Qiu, Jiang Miaoyu asked with a flush on her face.
“To appreciate the moon.”
Fang Qiu laughed.
Jiang Miaoyu nodded nervously, and actually looked up at the moon in the sky.
“Are you really going to appreciate the moon?”
Fang Qiu chuckled, took out a ticket to Song Yaqi’s concert and said, “This is for you.”
Jiang Miaoyu was surprised.
Fang Qiu nodded and said, “I just received it, too.”
“Is this why you let me out?”
Jiang Miaoyu shyly accepted the ticket.
Fang Qiu nodded, and asked back, “Or, do you really want to admire the moon here?”
“Of course no.”
Jiang Miaoyu quickly denied, and then said, “Come on and perform well at the concert!”
Fang Qiu replied with a smile.
Then, the two smiled at each other and turned away.
Returning to the dormitory, Fang Qiu found that Zhou Xiaotian and Sun Hao were both sad, and Zhu Benzheng had gone out.
He immediately counted the tickets secretly, and found that there were only five tickets in his hand.
That was to say, plus the one given to Jiang Miaoyu, he received only six tickets from Sun Hao.
Obviously, the missing one must have been taken by Zhu Benzheng for Wang Yu.
Thinking of that and looking at Sun Hao and Zhou Xiaotian who were about to speak but stopped, Fang Qiu made a smile, took out another two tickets from his trouser pocket and handed them to the two. “Take these. Go flatter your guests.”
The sudden surprise drove Zhou Xiaotian and Sun Hao to jump up in an instant.
When the two took the tickets over, they were so moved that they were almost about to kiss Fang Qiu by force.
“I love you so much, youngest.”
Sun Hao said excitedly.
“Me too, me too!”
Zhou Xiaotian echoed.
“All right, go ahead.”
Fang Qiu shook his head with a bitter smile.
“I’ll remember you all my life, youngest.”
Sun Hao looked at Fang Qiu very seriously and said, “They all said that the first thing to pursue a girl is to please her roommates, but you gave us the chance to please. You’re a good and loyal brother!”
Then, the two immediately rushed out.
“Isn’t it a win-win result?”
As soon as they left, Fang Qiu mumbled to himself, “You’re not going to say bad things about me to them, so they won’t say bad things about me, either.”
Then, Fang Qiu took out all the remaining tickets from his trouser pocket.
“There are three left.”
Looking at the tickets in his hand, he whispered, “Who should I give them to?”
Rolling his eyes, he immediately thought of Xu Miaolin.
He just didn’t know if Xu Miaolin liked concerts.
But no matter what, as a student, Fang Qiu should ask Xu Miaolin anyway. It was a kind of respect.
With that idea in mind, he immediately dialed Xu Miaolin’s number.
