&x201C;You are just trying to plot something against me,&x201D; Xu Beishen retaliated as she did not agree with Jiang Yuning&x2019;s point of view.
Jiang Yuning merely chuckled before she replied, &x201C;If I am really intending to plot something against you, I would not have told you everything that I just said. If you really want to keep living in denial and refuse to admit that what I just said makes some sense, then there is nothing else I can say that will help you get out of the situation that you are in. Do you really want to continue excluding yourself and hating on everyone else in the program? Not knowing when to put your pride and ego aside will prove to be one of the biggest obstacles in your life.&x201D;
Xu Beishen could not refute Jiang Yuning&x2019;s statement this time. Therefore, she kept quiet and silently looked out the window with a stern expression on her face.
When Jiang Yuning saw that Xu Beishen did not want to continue the conversation anymore, she did not force her. Jiang Yuning pulled her cap down and closed her eyes to take a short nap.
This was because Jiang Yuning had a hunch that the production team would definitely make the mission extremely difficult for them this time round.
Since they had not arrived at the final destination, the filming of the second episode has not officially begun. Therefore, all the guest members were still in possession of their cell phones.
Halfway through the journey, Jiang Yuning suddenly received a text message from Lu Jingzhi that read &x201C;I miss you already.&x201D;
As soon as she received that text message, Jiang Yuning was extremely happy and excited. However, at this time, she suddenly realized that Xu Beishen, who was sitting next to her, was staring at her cell phone.
Jiang Yuning did not put her cell phone away. Instead, she handed her cell phone over to Xu Beishen so that she could look at the wallpaper on her cell phone. &x201C;Here, look at this.&x201D;
Xu Beishen took the cell phone from Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hand and she stared at the picture of Jiang Yuning and Lu Jingzhi kissing under the rising sun. Xu Beishen was immediately filled with envy and she tried desperately to hold back her tears because she was extremely jealous and upset. &x201C;Though I have already known him for so many years, I have never seen this side of him before. The Brother Lu that I know would always be wearing a suit and tie. I have never seen him wearing anything else before.&x201D;
&x201C;This is because he only shows this side of him to the people who are important to him,&x201D; Jiang Yuning responded as she took her cell phone back from Xu Beishen in order to reply to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s message. &x201C;You were the one who chased me away when I was still trying to spend more time with you earlier at home.&x201D;
&x201C;I am regretting it already.&x201D;
&x201C;Hahaha! It is useless for you to regret it now!&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied mercilessly.
&x201C;I will remember this.&x201D;
Hahaha. Such a revengeful man.
Jiang Yuning put her cell phone away and she suddenly realized that Xu Beishen was sobbing silently beside her. Jiang Yuning quickly took a piece of tissue out from her bag before she handed it over to Xu Beishen. &x201C;It&x2019;s not a bad thing to fall in love, but it is a bad thing to be hung up on and stay obsessed over someone who will never belong to you.&x201D;
&x201C;Who asked for your opinion?&x201D; Xu Beishen replied as she grabbed the tissue from Jiang Yuning to wipe her tears away.
At this time, Jin Mingchen, who had stuffed himself with too much food and drinks earlier, suddenly started to experience motion sickness and he vomited a couple of times. In an instant, everyone in the bus were suddenly covering their nose and mouth because the smell of his vomit was too strong and overbearing.
Jiang Yuning had already advised him not to eat so much but he just wouldn&x2019;t listen!
However, none of them would have expected that they would be travelling on the bus for more than ten hours straight! When they finally arrived at their destination, it was already five o&x2019;clock in the evening. All of them were exhausted from the bumpy and long bus ride and they were extremely cautious and anxious when they stepped out of the bus. The shocked and stunned expression on all of their faces as soon as they got off the bus was priceless indeed.
This was because the production team had brought them to the desert this time. There was no trees or grass around them&x2014;it was all just sand.
They were in a desert!
After getting out of the bus, Jin Mingchen, who was already clearly shaken from the bus ride, stepped onto the sand before he stared at the production team and asked, &x201C;Isn&x2019;t the title of this variety show
The production team could not hold it in any longer. Therefore, they took out a loudspeaker before they made their announcement. &x201C;All of you are now in the desert that is located on an isolated and deserted island. Therefore, this is still an isolated island, but the only difference is that there is a desert on this island. Do you understand now?&x201D;
&x201C;Production team, are you guys the devil?&x201D; As compared to the previous episode where they had the forest and wilderness around them, the desert this time round was a completely barren piece of land with no grass on it at all!
&x201C;The location that we are currently at is the only supply station on this entire island. We will be resting here tonight and we will only be announcing the mission and the game regulations for this episode tomorrow.&x201D;
&x201C;Is it too late for me to quit now?&x201D; Jin Mingchen asked as he turned pale immediately.
&x201C;What do you think?&x201D;
The production crew dragged Jin Mingchen away heartlessly.
&x201C;By the way, all of you have to hand your cell phones over to the production crew before you enter your accommodation.&x201D;
The production team made this compulsory because they did not want to give Jiang Yuning a chance to search for any information or strategy that she could use to survive in the desert.
The most important thing for them right now was to prevent Jiang Yuning from being overly prepared for the mission.
On the other hand, the production team did not really care if Jin Mingchen turned his cell phone in or otherwise. This was because they were certain that he would not know the right things or strategies to search for even if he had his cell phone with him.
The expression on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face was extremely calm as she handed her cell phone over to the production crew. They wanted to prevent her from being prepared? They had to try harder than this!
&x201C;I would also like to inform all of you that the mission and the rules and regulation for this episode would be completely different from the last episode&x2019;s. Moreover, there might be some changes in the allocation of the respective groups. Therefore, it is best for you not to discuss any of the strategies that you have with your previous group members because you might be helping your opponents instead. The only thing that we know for certain now is that Xu Beishen and Jiang Yuning will be placed in the same group.&x201D;
After listening to the announcement, most of the guest members had mixed feelings.
They were happy because they did not want to be in the same group as Xu Beishen.
At the same time, they were sad because they wanted to be in the same group as Jiang Yuning, who had a higher chance of successfully completing the mission.
If the production team placed both Jiang Yuning and Xu Beishen in the same group, there would definitely be some drama arising from this group.
All of them were in a very complex mood as they handed their cell phones in before they checked into their respective accommodation.
It was not difficult for Jiang Yuning to wait for time to pass by even without her cell phone because she wanted to write a song for Lu Jingzhi anyway. Since she did not have her cell phone or any musical instruments with her, the only thing she could do was to think of the lyrics for her song.
However, Jiang Yuning did not sleep that well that night because someone kept knocking on her bedroom door throughout the entire night.
It was obvious that someone wanted to cheat.
In the end, Jiang Yuning could not tolerate it anymore and she stuck a note directly on her bedroom door. &x201C;Jin Mingchen, if you come and knock on my door one more time, I will hit you on the head immediately!&x201D;
The production crew had actually set up a little camera to record whatever was happening, but the guests did not know about the camera. It was actually rather hilarious to watch Jin Mingchen secretly running over to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s room and knocking on her door about seven to eight times that night!
This was because Jin Mingchen was seriously scared to death! How was he going to survive on this barren land?
In fact, some of the other guests had also gone to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s room because they wanted to ask for some advice. However, what surprised the production team the most was that even Xu Beishen went over to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s room.
After sticking the note on her door, it was finally silent and Jiang Yuning could finally get a good night&x2019;s sleep.
As Jin Mingchen was such a scaredy-cat who was so afraid to die, the production team could not help but to name Jin Mingchen, Jiang Yuning, and Xu Beishen as the three treasures of the variety program.
Jin Mingchen, who was afraid of everything.
Xu Beishen, who was despised by everyone.
And last but not least, Jiang Yuning, the one who knew everything.
As long as the three of them were present, the production team did not need to worry about the ratings of the show.
Early the next morning, the production team had already prepared breakfast and invited all nine guests to sit down and enjoy their final meal before they started recording.
After everyone was done with breakfast, they production team gathered all of them on the first floor.
&x201C;We are about to begin filming the second episode of
&x201C;I will now announce the rules and regulations of the mission this time. The theme for this episode is
&x201C;We had originally planned to pair everyone up, but since Tong Tong has a weaker body, we will place Tong Tong in the same group as Jiang Yuning and Xu Beishen. The remaining six members will draw lots to determine their partners.&x201D;
&x201C;After you have determined your group member, all of you will be allowed to enter the supermarket here to pick whatever you want to carry with you into the desert. You can take anything you want, as long as you can carry it on you. After that, everyone is to gather at the entrance of the supermarket at eight o&x2019;clock. Our production crew will then drive all of you to a random location to drop you off before you officially begin your mission. Your mission is to survive and look for clues that we have hidden in the desert to find out the whereabouts of your missing partner.&x201D;
&x201C;The points that you accumulate for this episode will be counted as a group effort and you will obtain extra points every time you complete a mission. At the end of the day, your points will be divided among you and your group members, and this will be added to the points that you have accumulated from the last episode.&x201D;
&x201C;In the last episode, Xu Beishen&x2019;s group came in the last place. Therefore, your punishment this time is that each of you can only bring a maximum of five items into the desert with you for this episode.&x201D;
After listening to the announcement&x2026;
Jin Mingchen could not help but cry out loud.
