My Artist is Reborn – Chapter 38 – Saving people

It was very late when police come to take care of the matter.

The story was clear, and the people and car involved were detained.

The police officer in charge of the statement told them: “They are arrogant, and still don’t realize that they made a mistake. We found that their car has some problems. Fortunately, nothing happened…”

Shen Huai face gradually became colder. He thanked the police officer and gave his contact information to the other party. Then he walked out of the interrogation room.

Outside, Xue Chengge, who accompanied Ye Cang, saw him come out, and hurriedly asked: “Brother Shen, how is it?” 

Shen Huai nodded. “It’s all right. Let’s go back.”

Shen Huai looked at Ye Cang and met his eyesight. At this time, Ye Cang’s mood had already calmed down. He laughed at himself and said, “Sorry, I’m too impulsive today.”

When he got out of the car before, he could not restrain his anger and almost beat people up. Fortunately, Shen Huai came on time to stop him, otherwise they would have become unreasonable even if they were justified. 

Shen Huai was silent for a while before he said, “If you weren’t here today, I would beat those f*ckers too.”

Ye Cang looked at Shen Huai in shock. It was really rare for him to say dirty words.

Xue Chengge echoed, “Yes, those f*ckers are too hateful!”

They were so indignant that Ye Cang was still in a rather depressed mood. Instead, he took the initiative to change the topic: “Don’t talk about it, I remember the night scenery of Dongjiang is quite beautiful, so it better to see the night scenery before we go back.”

Xue Chengge heard his words and said, “Brother Ye, I can’t go. My legs are still soft. I’ll go back to rest first. I’ll wait for you at the hotel.”

Today, Xue Chengge experienced a lot of things, especially Shen Huai’s Speed Racing part, making him feel unwell even after getting off the car.

Ye Cang did not force him, but instead looked at Shen Huai.

Shen Huai helplessly said, “Okay, I’ll go with you.”

So Xue Chengge called the cab back to the hotel, while Shen Huai drove with Ye Cang to the riverside.

Qinglang River is the most important and well-known River in Dongjiang. It is also the most suitable place for enjoying the night scenery of Dongjiang. At 10 o’clock in the evening many people were walking and playing along the river.

Although it was dark and Ye Cang was wearing a hat, today’s illegitimate rice still made Shen Huai afraid to take it lightly. He drove the car to a more remote location and the two men got off.

Ye Cang looked at the glittering high-rise buildings in the distance and said softly, “More than 30 years ago, when I came to Dongjiang, there were not so many high-rise buildings, but the night scenery was also beautiful. I told my assistant at that time that I would come to Dongjiang again to see the night scenery in the future, but I didn’t expect…”

Shen Huai listened to his words, his heart aching. He couldn’t help opening his mouth.

“I promise it won’t happen again.”

When Ye Cang turned his head, Shen Huai frowned slightly, and solemnly said to him, “This is due to my negligence, when we go back I will arrange bodyguards so that this will never happen again.”

His expression was so serious that even through his glasses, small flames were visible in his eyes.

Shen Huai was always calm. Ye Cang has hardly seen him behave hesitant since he knew him. But today in the car, Ye Cang saw a totally different side of Shen Huai.

His worry, his anger, the fierce light in his eyes when he was racing. 

Whether it’s the usual cold abstinence, or the loveliness when he took off his glasses, or today’s totally different appearance, it makes him a little bit more addicted to Shen Huai.

Ye Cang suddenly forgot what he wanted to say. His eyes fell on Shen Huai’s face, from the eyebrow bone, along the deep eye socket to the high nose bridge, and finally on the slightly thin lips.

Ye Cang could not help but take a step in the direction of Shen Huai.

The distance between these two people was originally close, but now that they become closer, their breathing could be heard. Shen Huai was caught off guard, and his breathing became chaotic. He subconsciously retreated, but Ye Cang grabbed his arm.

Ye Cang stared into his eyes and approached him slowly.

Shen Huai’s eyes reflected the appearance of Ye Cang. The other person’s face was unable to hide his emotions, this straightforward and fervent emotion almost bewitched him. 

Shen Huai gave up struggling. His eyelashes quivered slightly, and then slowly drooped down.

But just as their lips were about to touch, a cough came from the side.

Shen Huai’s body immediately became stiff, and he stepped back and quickly pushed Ye Cang away.

Ye Cang, who was close to success, looked angrily at Chu Mei Bo beside him.

Chu Mei Bo looked innocent: “I just wanted to remind you that just because I’m not human, doesn’t mean I don’t exist.”

Shen Huai corrected his glasses awkwardly and murmured, “I’m sorry.”

Chu Mei Bo smiled and said, “Junior Shen, don’t get me wrong. I’m not targeting you. Next time you feel amorous, let me know in advance so that I can avoid it.”

Shen Huai: “We are not…”

Chu Mei Bo: “No need to explain, I understand. This sister has seen winds and storms for many years. I don’t have those old stereotyped ideas about this, I will go to the side first, you talk slowly.”

After Chu Mei Bo finished talking, she smiled at the two people with understanding and slowly floated to the front.

Shen Huai: “…”

Ye Cang: “…”

The atmosphere at this point was gone. What else could they talk about?

Ye Cang was not reconciled. He looked at Shen Huai: “We…”

Shen Huai avoided his line of sight: “I see you are in a better mood, it is late now. Let’s go back to the hotel to rest.”

Ye Cang: “…”

Just as Ye Cang followed sadly after Shen Huai, they suddenly noticed a shaking figure on the river bank ahead.

Ye Cang frowned: “What is that?”

Shen Huai took a closer look, and suddenly his face changed: “It’s a person!”

The night was dark, and they could only vaguely see a person figure walking into the river step by step, trying to do something stupid.

At this time, other people along the river also found out, immediately triggering a commotion, then the figure swayed and fell directly into the river.

Although Shen Huai and Ye Cang hurried over, they were still a step behind.

There was a scream on the shore, and someone shouted, “Someone has fallen into the water!” 

“Help! quickly!”

“Call the police! And 120!”

The shore was suddenly in turmoil.

Shen Huai was about to jump into the water to save the person, but he was stopped by Ye Cang. He knew that Shen Huai was nearsighted and was afraid that his sight would be affected, so he quickly took off his coat and jumped directly into the water.

Ye Cang swimming ability was good, because it was summer, the river was not very cold, and he soon found the person in the water. It was a girl, who by that time had fallen into a coma.

It was easy for Ye Cang to rescue her. He took her to the shore and saw that Shen Huai found a stick somewhere and reached out to him. He grabbed the stick and was pulled to the shore. 

At this time, several passers-by gathered around and pulled up the girl who had fallen into the water.

Ye Cang breathed a sigh of relief and saw a hand stretched out in front of him.

Shen Huai stared at him closely. “I’ll help you up.”

Ye Cang chuckled, grabbed his hand and climbed ashore.

As soon as he came ashore, a cool breeze blew, and Ye Cang shivered. Before he spoke, a suit coat had covered him. 

Next to them, someone was giving first aid to the rescued girl. After a while, ambulances and police cars came in one after another.

Trained doctors carried the girl into the ambulance, knowing that Ye Cang was the one who sacrificed himself to save her, they also made him get in an ambulance.

The police were talking to a few onlookers. They were talking over one another and it was not easy for them to explain the whole story clearly, then the police came to Shen Huai.

At first sight of him, however, they were stunned.

The policeman was still an old acquaintance, it was the same policeman who took a statement from them today.

The policemen didn’t know if he should laugh or cry: “Mr. Shen, may I trouble you to go back to the police station with me to make a statement.”

Shen Huai also felt helpless. What is this? Fate?

The onlookers were worried that the police misunderstood Shen Huai and hurriedly explained that he had acted bravely and righteously.

The police had to explain it again with a good temper.

Just then, a man with a camera came out of the crowd and said, “I’m a reporter from Dongjiang TV station. I’ve filmed everything that just happened, and I can provide a video if the police need it,” he said. 

In the end, the reporter and Shen Huai followed the policemen back to the police station. 

At the end of the statement, the reporter handed Shen Huai his business card: “You two’s heroic deeds are very touching. I hope to make an exclusive interview with you two, I do not know if it is inconvenient?”

Shen Huai took the business card, but refused the other party. They saved the other party out of goodwill. If it is reported, with Ye Cang’s current fame, there will certainly be a lot of attention to this matter. Fearing that it would hurt the girl, he decided against it. It wouldn’t be in line with their original intention of saving her.

When the reporter heard his refusal, he was somewhat disappointed. He persuaded him again, and found that Shen Huai had made a firm resolution, so he gave up.

Shen Huai rushed to the hospital. Ye Cang was having his wound bandaged in the emergency room, when he rescued girl he got a lot of bruises on his body, but fortunately none of them were serious. 

Ye Cang thought about the girl who had been rescued and asked the nurse who bandaged him, “Excuse me, what happened to the girl who drowned before?”

The nurse next to him recognized him and rushed to reply, “She was in shock before, but after being taken to hospital, her breathing and heartbeat returned, and now she is out of danger…”

It was nothing, but Ye Cang and Shen Huai both had an inexplicable sense of familiarity. 

The two men looked around in unison. 

—— Chu Mei Bo has disappeared.

    Haha what if story is really about how Shen collects ghosts of past stars and helps them fulfill their wish of standing on stage again! I’m interested in how CMB joins their team!

  2. Zo Arai

    Really, CMB?
    Way to ruin the good mood.

    Anyways, can’t wait to see how she’ll live from here on.
    Hopefully it’ll be good.

    I do have to wonder about the sketchy morality of just…taking over these people’s lives lol this is identity theft jacked up to eleven

    CMB is a good friend♡ don’t be mad at her, it’s super weird to just be hanging around nearby while people make out lmao

    1. Son

      I thought about that too but like in the case of Lu Yang at least he’s making a kid’s dream come true?? And from a metaphysical standpoint, those bodies are technically free for the taking. I’m wondering if all the artists (assuming it’s more than these two) are gonna come back via suicide. If that’s the case then the original owners kinda waived their rights away (tragic really). Like sometimes in stories your very thoughts can make you vulnerable to possession. But these folks aren’t doing it intentionally are they. On that note I’m wondering how big of a role Shen Huai plays in the process 🤔

    2. nanairohana

      I don’t think there is any morality up to be questioned here. Ye Cang committed suicide and died; Lu Yang’s soul is nearby and got sucked into the body. Like Lu Yang said to Gu Mei, he didn’t know how he got reborn. So it is not like he snatched the body with that intention. Everything must be a swirl of second for him, so he didn’t robbed anyone body. Probably the same as Gu Mei. The girl committed suicide and died. She probably near her after trying to get away from the dog foods CP gave. The moment the girl died, she got sucked into that empty vessel.

      What is weird is that, it seems Huai can makes the bounded ghost to un-bound themselves. And then bring them near people with suicidal tendencies. Why though?

      1. Tafyun


        Also, the fact that someone has to die in order for someone else to live irks me a bit. I mean I understand the concept, but…sigh. Sorry, ignore that, I’m just sensitive to the topic of s**cide.

        1. RabbitwCarrotGun

          I think putting that way is wrong. It wronged the theme. It isn’t someone has to die in order for someone else to live; it is someone that died wrongly with strong wish to keep living that they become earth-bounded ghost is the theme. If you s**cide, you choose to forfeit life, so that is it. Even without the s**cide part, the ghosts are “alive”. They can felt emotions and interact with people like Huai. They just gained a bonus, empty shell that is forfeited by soul that doesn’t want to live anymore.

  8. nanairohana

    Hahahaha I can’t. So Huai is a lucky star for ghosts but cursed star for living beings? 😂
