Fantastic Life Tycoon Chapter 32
Alexandra was in a good mood. Her sleep quality had improved.She used to have trouble falling asleep with constant notifications on her socials buzzing all the time.
Things had been so bad that she had developed a fear of missing out which lead to her to be scared of sleep.
I got lucky when I snagged such a good product.
She had enquired about the shop later. It had been closed.
At first, Alexandra didn't even want to try the pillow but she tried it after the chat started asking for it. Alexandra mostly agreed to requests which didn't go too far out of her comfort zone. It was hard to make a living off streaming.
Alexandra was a film school dropout who moved out of her mother's house after joining college and didn't go back much after dropping out because of her self-esteem.Her mom had asked her to join a conventional department in college but Alexandra didn't want a normal life. She loved the glamour and the glitz.
She was a beautiful girl who had been in love with the actors and actresses and wanted to be a celebrity just like them but....
Reality is often disappointing.
Alex wasn't the most popular streamer. She didn't stream games like other streamers. She mostly talked to audiences when at home and streamed her outdoor experiences. She was a thot before the just chatting apacolypse happened on twitch, in a way she was a woman ahead of her time.
With an average of 80-100 viewers at normal streams, she had plateaued for some time and wasn't seeing any growth.
Alexandra had tried varying her content, visiting other cities but it was still not enough. She was a grassroots streamer with no background to splurge and show some exciting things everyday. Most places she wanted to shoot would stop her from streaming because of their no camera policies. Ofcourse, famous YouTubers weren't stopped.
She had been losing motivation because of the incidents but she decided to persevere.
Let's just try for an year. If I am still irrelevant, I will quit and go back home. Mom will not kick me out. I will join a community college and get a degree.
With this thought and determination, Alexandra improved her mood and started the outdoor stream. She was going on a hiking trail with people she had found on a FB group. She was talking to her friends and chat while showcasing the beautiful Pacific views when Brian had tuned in.
She is a small streamer. My guess was right. I hadn't heard of her later in the future. She wasn't a top streamer in the future. She is cute though. Let me cheer her up a bit.
Brian who only had 20k in his personal account sent a $5000 donation with a message.
"Got the magic pillows which you are using. Thanks for sharing about it."
Alexandra was reading the chat when an alert popped up with the name, MagicB.
Brian had wanted the name Magic but it was already taken. Even the system couldn't help with that.
"Thanks MagicB for the generous donation. Welcome to the channel." Alexandra genuinely looked happy since there wasn't a creepy message with the donation to ask her for other services.Those guys refunded their donations after some time.
This was also the reason she didn't freak out at seeing the number which was highest ever on her channel.
Is she rich? Her reaction wasn't as exaggerated as I thought it would be. Anyway, I did two things, thanked her and also popularised the pillows. Why are we still hiring marketing MBAs, someone explain it to me.
Brian had a smug expression thinking about his marketing strategy.
Alexandra didn't know what more to say. She had not gotten such a big donation before. This could pay her bills for two to 3 months even if she stopepd streaming.
Is it really genuine. I haven't received any messages soliciting nudes in exchange. He isn't one of those creeps. Maybe, the pillow made a huge difference in his life. I should send him a private message after the stream.
Brian had already left the stream by this time.
Alexandra didn't think that a company would donate 5k to a small streamer. Brian had only done it as a thank you for the advertising effect she had for MagicTech without her even knowing about it.
Alexandra continued her hike a little absent mindedly while Brian called Andrea.
"Hey, I want to go visit the library. Want to accompany me for a study session."
Is it Brian. When did he change so much. He barely attended the exams last time.
"Who are you? What did you to the real Brian?"
Brian knew Andy was taunting about his lack of interest in studying.
"Com, it's not that bad. I will in the library in 10 mins. Call me when you reach there."
"I am already in the library. Come meet me, nerd."
Andrea felt really happy thinking about spending time in Brian's company reading books. It was like a dream come true.
This isn't part of the novel. Big thanks for the feedback. We ended at 8th positions on the new leaderboards. My editor, Matt wrote a song for you guys. It's in the author's notes. Let's go higher than 8 this week. This novel will always be free to read. I mainly write to interact with everyone and putting it behind a paywall would reduce that and the readers would just go to Mr Sparrow for the copies.
Anyways, thanks. Much Love. Let's keep going for the Boys. Read and comment if you liked the poem. He exchanged his freedom for a week to interact with you guys.
