Chapter 2007: I cannot escape.

It was said that they died from drug overdose and overexertion.
There was nothing too sinful or grotesque at that mass orgy. Games like the bomb shot and Russian roulette ruled the place.
He personally witnessed a group of girls, blindfolded, being led to form a circle with their butts sticking out. The men could do whatever they wanted with those girls once the music started playing. The first one to give up would have to drink a shot. Likewise, the bomb shots they had at that debauchery were simply outrageous.
The death of a few younglings was nothing of concern to those rich men. They could easily cover up the matter with some hushed money.
A few naïve ones did not realize how deadly this place could be until they stepped in it. Alas, it was too late for any regrets. There was no way for them to retreat once they entered; the men practically forced themselves on them.
He became a drug addict after that party and had to spend a few months in recuperation.
His paymaster did not show any concern for him despite that and, instead, sent him to work at a bar for a living.
In the end, that man decided to sign him on as an artist. He was determined to transform the latter into a period-drama idol with some careful makeover. By then, Hua Jin was nothing more to him except a means to earn money. He had probably grown tired of him, but in any case, he did not touch him again.
The young man met Xiaoya about half a year after he stepped into show business.
Actually, he did not know the lady’s full name even now. He only knew that she came from an influential family which had ties with the long-lasting Zheng Tan clan. It was said that this family was behind a rich and powerful conglomerate.
In a way, that woman had saved him from his dark and sleazy past, but then, she turned him into her prisoner. He was like a canary trapped in a cage, and no one was permitted to get close to him.
He reckoned that she was smitten with his good looks or taken by his sweet talks.
Thus far, any actress who was on close terms with him or who wanted to do a CP with him had all been banned by her without fail.
To her, getting a starlet banned for life was a simple affair, but for those young stars, it meant a great deal.
Hence, all female artists avoided him like the plague. They were quick to draw a line with him even when they were on the same production set.
He sneaked a careful peek at Yun Shishi before making fun of himself. “Don’t you find me laughable? Look at me; my body is a commodity which has changed hands so many times that it is disgusting to behold. I find myself dirty.”
“Don’t say that!” She immediately stopped him; her heart was in turmoil by the time he finished with his life story.
All she could feel was heartache, shock, sadness, and a range of other persistent emotions.
She realized, with some shock, that he had told her the truth that day. He was not joking with her at all.
On that day, he opened about his painful past to her, only to brush it off lightly, telling her that he was only pulling her leg.
“Do you… dislike me now?”
He was really terrified about sharing his dark history with her. It was a past that he had been actively trying to hide and forget. The reason he shared this with her now was that he wanted to be open to her.
However, having told her everything, he was suddenly afraid that she would despise and avoid him.
She quickly shook her head. The actress felt empathy and heartache for him. Never, even for a moment, did she think that he was filthy because of his experiences.
Nothing could surpass the darkness and filth of a man’s heart.
Actually, this young man had retained a tinge of his childhood naivety. Beneath his aloof and vicious façade lay a kind heart.
