You Qiuqiu, “…”
Cui Jiannan gradually revealed an awkward smile.
He took the initiative to approach You Qiuqiu when they met on a small path. When he noticed the food in her hand, he still smiled kindly but said in a surprised tone, “Aren’t you full?”
Cui Jiannan brought a lot of food for You Qiuqiu, and with her assistant there, it was enough for three people to eat.
It’s not that You Qiuqiu wasn’t full, and she didn’t even touch the food Jiannan Ge sent.
You Qiuqiu was eager to taste the Golden Arch’s latest product, but Mr. Sheng had already bought it for her. You Qiuqiu thought the new product was delicious and unique after tasting it, but she still preferred the traditional one.
You Qiuqiu like barbeque as well, but she’s not sure whether it’s because she’s been on a plane for a long time, she feels a bit chilly from the air conditioner, and she suddenly doesn’t want to eat greasy food.
You Qiuqiu skips the explanations and just nods, “Yeah.”
Jiannan Cui: “Ah, I see.”
His tone and expression haven’t changed much, but You Qiuqiu understands it quickly. Her stomach is most likely a black hole from the opposite person’s perspective.
“…” A black hole is a black hole.
“Jiannan Ge, I’m going up.”
Because of the sudden concern and text messages, You Qiuqiu didn’t want to be in the same area as Cui Jiannan.
“We’ve already come down. Do you want to go to the movies with us?” asked the other party.
“My new movie is out, and there’s a movie theatre near the hotel,” he stated.
Jiang Tao is already breaking out in a cold sweat; is Cui Laoshi doing it?
“I’m taking advantage of you, and I’m so embarrassed for you to invite me to dinner and a movie,” You Qiuqiu said, clutching the bag of preserved egg and lean pork porridge firmly in her hand.
Cui Jiannan: “There is nothing to be embarrassed about.”
“Didn’t Qiuqiu also give me tea? I have tested it, and it was excellent.”
“It’s not a big deal…”
“Didn’t Qiuqiu also shoot a movie? You may invite me back once your movie is out,” he added.
It was an appointment for the next meeting.
“But my movie… role is a vegetative person,” You Qiuqiu said hesitantly. So, are you serious about inviting her back to watch the movie?
She didn’t even plan to invite friends and relatives.
What should she look at in the movie? To have seen her laying there the whole time?
Cui Jiannan had not expected such a response. For a time, he was at a loss for words. After all, being a vegetative person or whatever involved his knowledge blind area.
“It’s okay to take your time.”
“I used to play dead people when I first started.”
“When I was young, I cherished being a dead person, and then I particularly looked for where the camera was and wanted to take advantage of the chance to show my face, but the director discovered…”
In You Qiuqiu’s opinion, Cui Jiannan has always played the protagonist, so she has never heard of them. He’d been playing the protagonist for over ten years, and she didn’t expect to be playing a corpse occasionally.
“And then what happened?” she asked.
Discovered by a discerning director, he then went on a line of big male heroes, performing all the way and eventually becoming a powerful actor who has made his mark in the worldwide film circle?
“The director said, that dead man, turn your head to the side, don’t steal the spotlight,” Cui Jiannan recalled with a grin and a shake of his head.
He can say that it is very real in the world.
Cui Jiannan: “That’s why actors start in small roles, and it’s not ruled out that some are lucky, but because they’re not, they’ll play every character down-to-earthly, whether it’s a dead person or a vegetative person. What do you think?”
You Qiuqiu: “Hmm.”
These brief interactions with Cui Jiannan greatly inspired You Qiuqiu.
You Qiuqiu quickly lifted the uneasy mood after discussing this, and You Qiuqiu felt as if the kind older person was still in front of her.
Cui Jiannan then spoke again.
“Let’s skip the movie and go to the rooftop to stand for a bit.”
Jiang Tao concluded that the issue has shifted, and therefore, there should be nothing left. Who knew that Cui Jiannan would invite You Qiuqiu to the rooftop?
She opened her lips and wanted to reject for You Qiuqiu, but she had never been in such a circumstance before. She didn’t know how to speak appropriately and was frightened of offending Cui Jiannan in this way.
After all, Cui Jiannan has undoubtedly been well-connected in the circle for many years. If her actions annoy Cui Jiannan, she cannot deny that they do not affect Qiuqiu.
You Qiuqiu stood in the hotel lobby, watching people come and go, and it was wrong to stand here and speak about this stuff.
She is fine, but Cui Jiannan is well known, and it might spark a lot of interest and scrutiny in such a short period.
As a result, You Qiuqiu reacted.
Even though Jiannan Ge seemed to speak well, he had a bit of apparent meaning.
You Qiuqiu couldn’t hide it.
If she is unable to flee, she can only agree.
Jiang Tao didn’t intend to let You Qiuqiu go alone, so she followed them to the top. Cui Jiannan even became a gentleman by pressing the elevator floor, making Jiang Tao feel a bit more at ease, but only a little.
You Qiuqiu seemed to be more composed than Jiang Tao.
The hotel’s roof is the relatively small bourgeoisie. There are various flowers and trees, similar to a tiny garden, and European-style white tables and seats for guests to relax on. Because it is night, the roof lights are switched on, and many of the lights get entangled around the trees. It was as if it were a star.
