[Chapter 5.2] Reborn, I Became a Male God


Finally back, and I have a slightly longer chapter today.


________________________________

8pm at night, the sun had gone down and the lamps were glittering along the streets. Yun City at night had a completely different atmosphere.

A red BMW i8 pulled up in front of the Zero Point bar. The car door opened and an elegant beauty stepped out. She was wearing a black halter dress paired black pumps and a gold handbag, her hair was pulled back away from her face.

“Good evening Miss Zhang!” the valet immediately stepped out to greet her.

The beauty nodded and casually tossed him the keys as she walked towards the bar. Loud noises came from the bar when the valet opened the door for her.

She furrowed her brow. “Why is it so noisy today?”

The inside was filled with people, the bar especially was crowded to the point that it was impossible to see through the thick herd of people.

The valet replied to her question. “We just hired a new bartender today, all of these people are here for him.”

Miss Zhang was also here because of the new bartender, hearing the valet’s response only caused her interest to increase.

“Even if he is hotter than Devin, isn’t it a bit exaggerated for this many people to be here because of him?”

She used to be a regular at the Zero Point bar, coming here once or twice a week. Recently, she had been frequenting Midnight Forest instead because of their new hire, Devin.

She was only here today because the owner had called her bragging about how good looking their new hire was. She didn’t really believe it at first but was finally persuaded to come check him out.

“He’s actually really handsome, even better looking than the celebrities you see on TV. This is the first time I’ve ever seen anyone as good looking as him!”

Miss Zhang couldn’t help but smile.

“Alright, alright, you’re the same as your boss with these exaggerations.” As she spoke, she walked into the bar and was greeted by DongGe who was smiling so widely you could barely see his eyes.

“It’s about time you showed up!”

“Get out of here” she said jokingly, “I’m here to see the so-called most handsome man in the world. Just how good looking is he? If he’s not as good looking as you’ve claimed, then you better wash your mouth with soap for me.”

DongGe pointed to the crowd of people surrounding the bar. “Miss Zhang, even if you don’t trust my opinion you should at least trust the opinion of the masses. Can’t you see all these people here for JingLing? They’ve already been surrounding him for hours, if it wasn’t for the backdoor, I probably wouldn’t have even made it in here!”

Miss Zhang had some doubts after hearing this, “Hm.. Really? Why don’t you go bring him over for me to take a look.”

There really was a difference between a VIP and a normal patron. All the other customers had to stand around the bar to catch a glimpse of JingLing but Miss Zhang could summon him directly into her private lounge.

--Translated by LissuLand.com, if you are reading it elsewhere then it was stolen & you are missing the latest updates--

DongGe nodded and pushed through the throngs of people to get behind the bar. JingLing was in the middle making a drink when DongGe interrupted him.

“JingLing, come with me for a moment.”

DongGe then turned to the crowd and said. “I’m sorry everyone, I’ll have to borrow your bartender for a moment, he’ll be back shortly.”

There was a mix of men and women in the crowd. The women were there for JingLing’s looks, while the men were there for his cocktail mixing skills.

Although JingLing wasn’t good enough to be considered the best in this world, he was at least top tier. Even the patrons who weren’t familiar with cocktail mixing techniques could tell that he was highly skilled. A handsome man with this level of skill was enough to attract anyone’s attention.

JingLing had just finished crafting a Phoenix Tail cocktail, he handed it over to a young lady with a smile, then turned to the crowd.

“I’ll be back very soon.”

A burst of discontent came from the crowd.

“Nooooo, don’t go!”

“Wait! Wait! I finally got to the front of the line!”

“Who do you think you are taking JingLing away? He belongs to all of us, you can’t borrow him!”

Despite this, JingLing and DongGe waded through the crowd and went up the stairs to the second floor.

Before arriving at Miss Zhang’s private room, DongGe repeatedly told JingLing,

“Miss Zhang is a VIP here, you have to take very good care of her, watch what you say, don’t upset her!”

JingLing jokingly responded.

“Let’s clarify first, am I here to sell my skills or my body?”

The corner of DongGe’s mouth twitched.

“What kind of establishment do you take us for?! We don’t do that kind of thing! But now that you mention it, I should remind you, it’s okay to show off and flirt with the patrons, but you have to be clear headed, don’t do anything stupid.”

At this moment, they arrived in front of the VIP lounge. DongGe knocked on the door.

“Miss Zhang, I’ve brought him here.”

JingLing didn’t particularly like the way that phrase sounded.

After a pause, a voice came from inside the room

“Come in”

Hearing the reply, DongGe pushed the door open. He gave JingLing one last look to remind him of their conversation before they both entered the room. Inside, Miss Zhang was seated on a gray sofa on the right side of the room.

“Miss Zhang!” DongGe loudly said.

She looked up and her gaze slid directly onto JingLing. To be honest, she’s seen a lot of good looking guys before, many of them would cause any ordinary girl to go into a daze, but none of them could compare to the man in front of her.

The young man’s features were perfect to the point of looking sculpted, his body was lean and he moved with lightness. He carried himself with an elegance that couldn’t be dampened even by the cheap uniform of the bar.

“Good evening, Miss Zhang.” The young man’s voice was pleasant to the ear.

Miss Zhang nodded, but her gaze continued to rest on JingLing. The look of scrutiny in her eyes caused DongGe’s heart to beat anxiously, yet JingLing remained completely calm. From the moment he walked in till now, his expression didn’t change at all.

After a few moments, Miss Zhang finally said. “Come here and sit, DongGe, you can go ahead and leave, I’ll call for you if I need anything.”

DongGe looked back and forth from Miss Zhang and JingLing. After a moment of hesitation he turned to leave. With the sound of the door closing, there were now only two people in the room.

JingLing continued standing where he was. Miss Zhang smiled and said, “What? Are you scared of me?”

“I’m not, I just think there are some things that need to be clarified first.”

Miss Zhang arched her brows, “Alright, I’m listening.”

“I think you’re very beautiful, but you’re not my type.” JingLing paused and then continued. “Do you have any drinks you would like? If you haven’t decided yet then you can take your time, once you’ve made up your mind you can tell DongGe, if there isn’t anything else then I’ll need to go attend to the other customers.”

Hey guys, sorry for the long delay, still busy with moving.

I thought I would at least be able to post once a week, but I ended up scratching my cornea which really messed up my vision for a while (ಥ﹏ಥ). It’s gotten a lot better now so I should be able to update a little more.
