“That means he still needs to work on his acting skills.
Jojo: Come on, Aaron, have some congee. Aaron: Well, thank you..
I suddenly feel sorry for Aaron. Having a sister like this must be tough.‘
As Aaron’s fans watched the livestream, they couldn’t help but feel sorry for their idol and husband.
Simone and her group didn’t go to the farmers‘ homes to find work that day. Instead, they stayed in the yard, with Simone fixing electrical appliances and tutoring the children in the village, while Zac and the other two continued teaching their classes.
During lunchtime, each family of the children who came to learn prepared a dish for them, discussed.
As a result, Simone’s group had a table full of food for lunch without having to go out.
Zac took a picture of the dishes and shared it in the group chat.
Zac: We have a table full of food without going out. I’m afraid we won’t be able to finish it all.
On the other hand, Aaron and the others heard the notification sound on their phones and absentmindedly opened the group chat.
Instantly, the four of them were speechless.
Aaron nearly swore out loud. “I shouldn’t have clicked on it.”
As Leyla looked at the picture of the abundant dishes on the table and then back at the bowl of noodles in front of her, she suddenly regretted her decision to choose this group.
That day, they found a job helping with rice harvesting. Jodie and Leyla didn’t go to the fields to harvest paddy but instead bundled the paddy harvested by others and loaded it onto hand carts.
However, they couldn’t last even an hour and began to feel their backs and hands aching. Their work became slower and slower.
Leon and Aaron helped with rice harvesting in the field and only managed to persist for a little over an hour.
Naturally, the host was not satisfied with their work, and the lunch provided was just a bowl of chicken noodle soup.
Just then, Leyla suggested, “Should we go teach the village children singing and dancing too?”
Yet, Jodie vetoed the idea immediately. “I don’t think we should. Otherwise, the other group might think we want to steal their students. It was Simone’s idea to teach the village children. I don’t want to do the same thing as her.”
Her reason left Leyla speechless. “But we’re really not good at this job today. The host said that if we continue like this in the afternoon, they won’t pay us.

This hou didn’t mind making them look bad at all.
Jodic also found it quite frustrating. “Haven’t we already done enough? The host today is too demanding.
After some thought, she suggested, “Why don’t we go to town to make some money? Simone and her group have been learning shadow puppetry these past few days. It’s much more interesting than just doing manual labor. If we want to stand out in the livestream, we need to figure out a way.”
Leon asked, “But how? Do we look for jobs?” He really didn’t want to harvest rice anymore. Since he had never done such labor before, he was experiencing soreness in his back and pain in his hands.
To make things worse, the sun was scorching in the afternoon. Being out in the fields under its intense rays left their faces several shades darker and even caused sunburn.
She suggested, “We can perform. I can play the guitar, Aaron can dance, and both you and Miss Morse can sing.” She had learned to play the guitar with Luca before.
This morning, she discreetly asked one of the production staff behind the live stream camera. The person said that her yoga practice wasn’t generating as much interest as Simone’s martial arts practice, and there was a significant difference.
This upset her; she couldn’t understand why her graceful yoga practice couldn’t compete with Simone’s rough martial arts practice. What were the viewers thinking? So, she came up with an idea to showcase her versatility to her audience.
When she suggested the plan, the other three didn’t object. After all, they were all tired of manual labor and didn’t find rice harvesting or paddy bundling appealing. Performing would likely be more enjoyable.
Thus, they discussed the idea with Jonah. He not only didn’t oppose it but also provided them with a car to take them to town. Their livestream does need some changes to make it more interesting.
While they were heading to town, Simone’s group visited the home of the old man who made shadow puppets. The old man had already prepared the puppets needed for their performance and now needed to rehearse with them.
He began by saying, “I’ll teach you how to manipulate the shadow puppets, and then you can provide the voices for the characters you’re holding. But there’s still an issue that needs to be resolved; otherwise, the performance will have a flaw.”
Eric asked, “What’s the issue?”
The old man explained, “The music. When we performed shadow puppetry in the past, my son was responsible for the music. Sigh. Unfortunately, he’s no longer with us, and my grandson isn’t skilled at playing those instruments. So, we may need your production team to find someone who can play the instruments.”
Sitting in a corner of the room, Jonah asked, “Sir, what musical instruments are needed for the music?”
To answer the question, the old man took them to a separate room and pointed to a cabinet filled with various instruments. “These.”

When Jonah and the others looked over, they found a drum, castanets, fiddle, dulcimer, flute, and
The elderly man said, “I can play the castanets and flute, but I’m not skilled with the other instruments.”
Jonah looked a bit troubled. “Then we’ll need someone skilled in playing drums, fiddles, dulcimers, and trumpets. We might have to find someone from outside, but I’m not sure if they’ll make it in time.”
Their performance was scheduled for the day after tomorrow, and it would be challenging to bring in several skilled musicians from out of town in such a short time.
At this moment, Simone raised her hand. “Why don’t I give it a try?”
Everyone in the room looked at her in complete surprise. Does she know how to play the instruments too?
