CH 7

Jiang Chengyi quietly discussed the script with Yu Rui, both of them were very serious about their work, so this discussion, unknowingly, went on until eleven o’clock.

“I’m a little hungry, are you hungry?” Jiang Chengyi ended the conversation and closed the script in his hand.

“A little, I’ll go make something to eat, what do you want to eat?” Yu Rui immediately stood up, and was also kind of relieved – Jiang Chengyi talked to him for so long without going to the toilet much, the stomach problem should be well, right? It was true that it was common for young people to eat incorrectly and occasionally have diarrhea ……

“Anything is fine.” Jiang Chengyi smiled at Yu Rui.

At that time, he couldn’t stay in his country, and travelled to a foreign country, but his days weren’t good, although his father, Jiang Heng, would help him, he never cared about his life, so before and after, there had been some years that no one cared about his diet, but now Yu Rui still cared about him …… Jiang Chengyi’s smile became more bright.

The fact that Jiang Chengyi could be an actor and was popular, his appearance was naturally good, in fact, even compared to the almost “omnipotent” Han Tian, he was better in appearance. And as an actor, he knew best how to smile to look good, so after smiling, he saw that the person across from him was a bit stunned.

As Yu Rui walked to the kitchen, Jiang Chengyi felt a little smug, the person he liked also liked him, this was definitely a thing that made him happy!

It was already very late, so Yu Rui only made two bowls of noodles to fill his stomach, and after he ate, he got up to say goodbye.

“Yu Rui, it’s already very late today, and it’s not convenient for you to go back,” Jiang Chengyi said: “The guest room can be cleaned up a little so you can sleep here.”

Yu Rui was a little hesitant, but thinking that Jiang Chengyi’s body was still a little uncomfortable, he nodded: “That’s fine, I’ll stay here and take care of you.”

Jiang Chengyi slept well that night, and when he finally got up, after dressing up, he found Yu Rui already busy in the kitchen.

Such a scene was familiar, but unfortunately, he didn’t cherish it before.

“Okay, okay, I know.” Yu Rui’s voice came out from the kitchen, he was on the phone.

Jiang Chengyi looked at the time, it was only six in the morning, it was so early, whose call was it? He thought about it and pretended to nonchalantly ask, “Yu Rui, who are you talking to on the phone?”

“Ah? Nothing, someone asked me something.” Yu Rui hung up the phone quickly, and when he saw Jiang Chengyi standing at the kitchen door, he panicked.

Jiang Chengyi naturally saw Yu Rui’s panic, he had just confirmed his feelings yesterday, seeing Yu Rui’s expression made him a little upset, but his face didn’t show anything, he just smiled at Yu Rui and gently asked, “Who was calling? How come they called so early in the morning?”

Yu Rui completely didn’t notice that Jiang Chengyi/’s attitude was somewhat unsuitable, he felt a little worried, he was quiet for a while as he thought of a good way to put it: “Li Chao called…… he said that another scandal about us is out.”

Hearing the word scandal, Jiang Chengyi frowned, he didn’t care about scandals usually, but now his mentality had changed, after all, when Han Tian forced him to go abroad, he relied on a scandal.

There was also Li Chao …… Jiang Chengyi heard the name and felt his teeth itch, Li Chao was Yu Rui’s best friend, after he and Yu Rui grew apart, he made a lot of fake rumors about him, although the other did it for Yu Rui, Jiang Chengyi still didn’t like this person, now hearing that it was Li Chao, the hostility was even more.

Unfortunately, at this moment, he had no position even if he wanted Yu Rui to cut off his friendship with Li Chao, after all, he and Yu Rui were just friends: “Another scandal? I’ll go check it out.”

“Well, breakfast is almost ready.” Yu Rui said quickly, then turned around and continued cooking.

Nowadays, when there was any news, it would appear on the internet first. Jiang Chengyi opened his tablet to check the entertainment news, and in a short while he saw something related to him – “Jiang Chengyi’s mysterious ‘boyfriend’ showed up at his apartment”.

The news hadn’t been out long, with a photo of Yu Rui carrying something to his house, following the previous day’s news, saying that the man he once watched a movie with was now in the house.

The news was written in a very ambiguous way, Jiang Chengyi looked at the comments and found that there were quite a few fans who spoke out, no one took it seriously.

“The news is wrong, you didn’t just show up at my apartment, you spent the night with me.” Jiang Chengyi saw that Yu Rui had already served breakfast and teased him a bit, not taking it seriously.

Yu Rui was a little uncomfortable hearing Jiang Chengyi’s words, then he spoke apologetically: “Sorry, I didn’t find any reporters at all yesterday.” He was really careless, he was so worried about Jiang Chengyi’s health that he didn’t even notice anything else.

“It’s okay, the reporters are just casually writing.” Jiang Chengyi saw Yu Rui’s cautious expression and felt uncomfortable, but unfortunately, now he hadn’t even dealt with Mo Yuting’s matter, how could he confess to Yu Rui?

Breakfast was still congee, the congee with diced meat smelt very fragrant, and the celery sprinkled on it served as a beautiful decoration for the congee.

Jiang Chengyi ate a lot, and just as he finished eating, he received a call from Tang Chengping, who had come to his home yesterday, but today’s audition was in Cheonghuang, so Tang Chengping didn’t come, and only had his driver come pick him up.

When Jiang Chengyi arrived at Morning Glory, he saw his assistant Xiao Wang already waiting at the door: “Jason, Brother Tang is already waiting, have you eaten yet?”

“I’ve already eaten.” Jiang Chengyi spoke, then walked towards his office.

Today’s Morning Glory wasn’t much different from the past, but there were several starlets and newcomers standing in the downstairs hall chatting in twos and threes. He guessed that Li Hui was coming over, everyone knew about it, and they all wanted to show their faces in front of the director.

Jiang Chengyi was already thinking about changing agents, but he couldn’t deny that Tang Chengping was very suitable for this position. He was careful, smooth in the world, and he also had personal resources, and later when he switched to Han Tian, he helped Han Tian solve a lot of problems. But such a person, Jiang Chengyi couldn’t afford to keep him.

“Jason, the audition is at nine in the morning, you still have time to familiarise yourself with the script.” Tang Chengping saw Jiang Chengyi enter, he raised his head for a moment and went back to his own business.

Jiang Chengyi sat down on the sofa next to him, not surprised by Tang Chengping’s attitude, he just took out the script and read it again.

Jiang Chengyi didn’t say anything, but after a while, Tang Chengping put put down the work at hand: “Jason, last night Scriptwriter Yu went to your home? Now that the TV series you just shot is about to be released, there are many reporters staring at you, you need to pay more attention to it!”

“I was a bit unwell yesterday, and Yu Rui came over.” Jiang Chengyi explained good-naturedly, when Tang Chengping defected to Han Tian, he managed to damage his image in front of the media, this time, he wouldn’t give the other this opportunity again, moreover, the matter of Tang Chengping should benefit him …… so it seemed he just had to wait for that day.

“So how are you doing now?” Tang Chengping asked.

“I’m fine now.” Jiang Chengyi laughed, then the office door was opened and Mo Yuting walked in from outside.

Mo Yuting was wearing a dress, the white on top and black on the bottom with a student vibe made her look younger than her actual age, while behind her, she was followed by Jiang Chengyi’s assistant Xiao Wang.

“Jason, how is your health?” Mo Yuting said with concern, but Jiang Chengyi could see that she was a bit reluctant.

“I’m already better.” Jiang Chengyi smiled.

“It’s good if you don’t delay the audition later.” Mo Yuting smiled, “I asked Xiao Wang to buy you a bowl of congee, so you can eat some before you go to the audition.”

Jiang Chengyi looked at the bowl of porridge and knew that he had eaten this bowl of porridge before he got diarrhoea, he just didn’t know, this time …… However, he still didn’t say anything: “Thank you.”

Mo Yuting sat down for barely a minute and quickly left, the previous Jiang Chengyi would think that the other was busy with work, but now Jiang Chengyi was no longer so naive – Mo Yuting, simply had no feelings for him at all, that was why she wasn’t willing to get along with him more.

The bowl of congee was skinny egg and lean meat congee. It smelled very good, Jiang Chengyi picked it up and gave it to his assistant Xiao Wang: “I ate a lot this morning, I’m not hungry now, do you want it?” If Xiao Wang didn’t want to take the blame when she was looking for someone to pin the blame on later, he had to eat this stuff himself.

“Yes.” Xiao Wang nodded at once, his family was average, such a meal for him was a good thing that he couldn’t afford to eat. Speaking of which, being a star’s assistant was hard work. If the salary wasn’t really high, he wouldn’t have chosen such a job.

Xiao Wang was a young man in his early twenties, of course, he had a very good appetite, after two to three bites the bowl of skinny meat congee was gone, he patted his stomach and proudly spoke: “Jason, it’s my first time eating this type of congee!”

Jiang Chengyi glanced at Xiao Wang: “Next month I’ll give you a salary increase, then you can go buy a few bowls to try.” If Xiao Wang had diarrhoea, he would have to give him a bonus.

When Xiao Wang heard that he would increase his salary, his eyes immediately lit up: “Jason, boss, you have to keep your word!”

“I won’t lie to you.” Jiang Chengyi spoke.

After sitting for a while, it was almost time for the three of them to go out together, thinking of the bowl on the table that hadn’t yet been disposed of, Jiang Chengyi naturally locked the door.

Although Jiang Chengyi’s fame wasn’t small now, Li Hui’s fame was even bigger, and except for veteran stars like Zhao Ziwen, there weren’t many people who could make Li Hui wait, so Jiang Chengyi waited there early, and then not long after, he saw Morning Glory’s boss Mo Nan accompanying two middle-aged people over.

One of these two was Li Hui, the other was also a director of some fame, but this time he was acting as an assistant director.

Mo Nan had always been very warm to Jiang Chengyi, this time he also smiled and introduced him to the directors, but Jiang Chengyi clearly felt that Li Hui was somewhat dissatisfied with him.

The protagonist of this movie was a man born in poverty, who became a bandit in the war years, and only later he suddenly awakened to become a soldier to resist the invaders with a gangster’s temperament, but Jiang Chengyi had always played roles similar to that of a nobleman, of course Li Hui would feel it was inappropriate. Obviously Li Hui hadn’t yet made a decision, why were people so certain he would get thr role ……

“You’ve read the script, right? Put on the costume and perform a scene for me to see.” Li Hui also didn’t say more pleasantries and spoke directly.

Jiang Chengyi went next door to change, Xiao Wang came over to help, but unfortunately not a moment later, the young man’s face turned red: “Boss Jason, I need to go to the bathroom.”

“Go ahead.” Mo Yuting didn’t use a heavy hand, it was only enough to make him stay in the toilet for half a day only, after Xiao Wang went to the toilet a few times, he would be fine.

However, this time Mo Yuting actually drugged him again…… just this time, the bowl was still there, the person with diarrhoea became Xiao Wang, then Mo Yuting couldn’t put the blame on Xiao Wang, right?

Jiang Chengyi took a deep breath, threw this out of his mind, and then while dressing up, he thought about the scene he’d be acting out later.

His original acting skills weren’t bad, but they weren’t the best. At first, when he was abroad, he followed Jiang Heng to learn, and then played a lot of supporting roles before honing out to gain his own experience.

An actor that really played a role to its best, in his opinion, there were two ways, one was to treat himself as the character, feel the joy, anger, sadness and true expression of the character, the other was beyond that, the overall situation would be to have an extreme grasp of his acting skill.

Both of these, he could do, he could freely switch.

By the time the clothes were on, Xiao Wang hadn’t yet come over, but Jiang Chengyi’s whole temperament was already very different. In the past, he was always polite and courteous, but at this moment, he gave people an uncomfortable feeling.

Jiang Chengyi opened the door to enter and carelessly glanced at Li Hui: “I, your grandfather, just arrived, you don’t know how to greet?”

This was a scene at the beginning of the film, the Japanese caught some of the revolutionaries who resisted them when they were eating in the restaurant, the protagonist went in, joined the boss of the restaurant and kicked the shopkeeper, and fawned on the Japanese. Then, after the Japanese let their guard down, he joined the shopkeeper and fought the invaders, after k-lling them and taking their money and g-uns, the revolutionaries were released.

Jiang Chengyi was in good shape, arrogant when he should be arrogant, fawning when he should be fawning, and soon finished acting the part.

“Very good!” Li Hui called a halt with a smile on his face, “You acted very well, beyond my imagination, although I think your looks are not quite suitable for this role, but …… the makeup artist should have a way.”

Jiang Chengyi didn’t expect to pass, but he also saw that Li Hui was still somewhat unhappy. Moreover, although this drama had a large investment, it quickly began to attract attention. However, because of the war theme, although the box office was generally rated high, if Han Tian churned out a script to make a movie by himself as he once did, the final response would be better than this.

Han Tian had enough scripts to take out, Jiang Chengyi didn’t want the other to be out of his control, and Yu Rui had written a script specifically for him.

He had been holding this script written by Yu Rui specially for him and this war movie.

In the past, filming at the same time, closing the ceremony together, finally overshadowing him at the box office had made Han Tian’s opinion of him bigger. At this time, he certainly didn’t want to give up that movie.

“Director Li, I have carefully read the script and found that I really don’t suit this role, but I really hope to work with you, Director Li.” Jiang Chengyi’s expression was full of sincerity.

The gangster just now turned into an honest man all of a sudden, a trace of amazement flashed in Li Hui’s eyes, but Jiang Chengyi’s words made him a little unhappy.

From the beginning, he had no intention of letting Jiang Chengyi take the lead role, but someone was pressuring …… the person in front of him acted well, but this alone made him even more unhappy.

Jiang Chengyi also saw that Li Hui’s expression wasn’t very good. Mo Nan winked at him, but he ignored it: “Director Li, I think another role in this movie is more suitable for me. I wonder if Director Li would like to give me a chance?”
