My Wife is a Beautiful CEO - chapter-993-a-month
Chapter 993 A Month
With a gentle voice, Lin Ruoxi replied to her, â€œMinjuan, whatever it
is, you can tell us.â€
Minjuan gave her a grateful smile. She thought to herself, Sir has chosen
the right candidate to take care of Lanlan.
â€œSir left in a hurry but he told me that if he wasnâ€™t back within a
month, Lanlan will be under your care officially as your daughter.â€
â€œReally?â€ Lin Ruoxiâ€کs face lit up. But the whole situation still
seemed highly irregular to her. â€œIs he doing something dangerous?â€
Minjuan shook her head helplessly. â€œI donâ€™t know about that, Iâ€™m
not allowed to ask about his matters.â€
Yang Chenâ€™s heart sank slightly when he saw her delighted expression.
It certainly seemed like she was hoping for Lanlanâ€™s grandfather to
Nonetheless, Yang Chen couldnâ€™t understand why she valued the girl so
much to the extent where she would treat her like she was her own
On the other hand, Lanlan sipped on her orange juice quietly as the
adults talked. She didnâ€™t interject and had already finished the whole
cup by the time they were done talking.
Lin Ruoxi stroked her hair and thought that she was getting cuter and
cuter. She couldnâ€™t stop herself from pinching her cheeks and Lanlan
returned the gesture with a sweet grin.
Just when she was about to ask if Lanlan needed more food, her cellphone
Lin Ruoxi picked it up and looked at the number before telling Yang Chen,
Yang Chen nodded and replied, â€œWhy are you telling me this?â€
Lin Ruoxi blushed. She wondered why she even told him that, it was as if
she was worried he would misunderstand her.
â€œHello, Mom? Whatâ€™s wrong?â€ Lin Ruoxi answered the call.
â€œRuoxi, youâ€™re with Yang Chen right?â€
â€œYeah, we just finished dinner. Mom, I have to tell you somethingâ€¦â€
â€œNowâ€™s not the time for that. Hui Linâ€™s back and the famous
director, Yu Shuo is here too. He wants to discuss something with you
guys.â€ Guo Xuehua sounded cheerful.
It didnâ€™t sound like a bad thing so Lin Ruoxi relayed the message to
â€œHui Linâ€™s back? Her tourâ€™s over?â€ Yang Chen asked.
Lin Ruoxi counted the dates and replied to him, â€œI think so. I remember
that her concertâ€™s in Japan and the USA were canceled due to some
conflict of interest.â€
Yang Chen nodded his head, he saw the news occasionally and they did
mention the conflict between Japan, USA, and China over the territorial
waters. It wasnâ€™t suitable for Hui Lin to have concert tours there
since she was one of the most popular artists in China.
This was trivial news to him. As long as war did not break out, there was
nothing for him to worry about.
He would be happier if a war were to break out. After all, he had stocked
up lots of weaponry that would come in handy. Yang Chen could earn a lot
of money with it and as long as he wasnâ€™t involved in the war, he
wouldnâ€™t mind the idea of it.
Minjuan sounded excited. â€œReally? Miss Hui Lin? The singer?â€
Lin Ruoxi nodded. â€œYou know her too?â€
â€œOf course I do! I thought she looked very familiar the last time I saw
her but I couldnâ€™t believe my eyes. I thought about it when I got home
and I realized Miss Linâ€™s the president of Yu Lei International and
Miss Hui Linâ€™s from the Yu Lei Entertainment! I regret not asking for
her signature!â€ Minjuan became teary-eyed at the thought of it. â€œWhen
she sings sad songs, it reminds me of the time when I was back at home
and it made me cry a lot.â€
Lin Ruoxi exchanged glances with Yang Chen. They didnâ€™t know Hui Lin
was so popular that even a nanny knew her songs.
â€œIâ€™ll ask her to sign for you when we get back. But promise to not
make it awkward for her. Sheâ€™s part of our family.â€ Yang Chen
Minjuan nodded hurriedly. She already felt blessed enough to be able to
meet her idol.
It took them nearly forty minutes to reach home because of the traffic
When they entered the villa, Guo Xuehua and Wang Ma were already chatting
away with Director Yu Shuo in the living room. On the other hand, Hui Lin
was chatting and giggling with Zhenxiu.
Even though the semester had already commenced, they were still
undergoing military training. Since Zhenxiu stayed in Zhonghai, she only
needed to attend the training during the day and then return home at
Yang Chen was reminded that he didnâ€™t even visit her university when
the semester had already commenced. She took care of everything herself
and as her â€کguardianâ€™, he should really check on her soon. She might
get bullied by others like last time since she was so gullible.
Guo Xuehua and others were surprised to see them, they didnâ€™t expect to
see Lanlan and her nanny, Minjuan again so soon.
Guo Xuehua was especially surprised, throwing a confused glance at Yang
Chen. She hasnâ€™t met Lanlan yet as she was in Beijing the last time
Lanlan was here.
Yang Chen shook hands with the director and Lin Ruoxi gave him a simple
nod as a greeting before sitting down together.
Yu Shuo thought their reaction towards the little girlâ€™s appearance was
a bit weird but he didnâ€™t say anything about it. He grinned and said,
â€œPlease forgive me for visiting at night. I didnâ€™t want to miss out
on a good opportunity like this so I came here to talk about a movie
Yang Chen remembered this. He wanted to film a movie about deities and
warriors. Yu Shuo was awarded the best director award in the Cannes and
Tokyo Film Festival, so naturally his movies would receive a ton of
â€œDirector Yu, do you wish to have Hui Er in the movie?â€
â€œHow did you know that, Mr Yang? Youâ€™re right. Iâ€™ve been busy
trying to cast the female lead character and Miss Lin Hui is the most
suitable one by far. But sheâ€™s been busy with her world tours so when I
heard that her tours in Japan and the USA had been canceled, I came over
immediately. Miss Lin Hui said I didnâ€™t have to go through the agency,
she only needs both of your approval,â€ Yu Shuo said.
Yang Chen looked at Hui Lin and asked with a smile, â€œDo you like acting
in movies? Itâ€™s all up to you.â€
Hui Lin blinked and hesitated before saying, â€œIâ€™m not professionally
trained and I donâ€™t know how movies work. Iâ€™m afraid Iâ€™ll mess
â€œI watched your concert and you are already halfway there. You just
need to channel it towards your character. Besides, your aura matches the
main character, Iâ€™m sure itâ€™ll go smoothly!â€ Yu Shuo persuaded her.
Hui Lin struggled to answer and tossed a helpless glance towards Lin
Lin Ruoxi voiced up, â€œIf thatâ€™s the case, it would be best to accept.
Iâ€™m sure he wonâ€™t blame you even if it doesnâ€™t work out.â€
â€œYeah.â€ Yang Chen nodded. â€œBut let me be frank with you. I expect
decent compensation for this.â€
Lin Ruoxi rolled her eyes at him. Things hadnâ€™t been settled yet and he
was already talking about the pay.
Yu Shuo smiled bitterly. Based on her popularity, he knew he couldnâ€™t
give her a basic payout. He wouldnâ€™t dare to invite her without a
minimum pay of at least ten million dollars.
After a simple discussion, it was finally settled and the contract could
be signed after the details were discussed with the agency. The filming
for the movie was scheduled to start in the mid of September so Hui Lin
still had time to prepare and familiarize herself with the script.
Once Yu Shuo had left, Guo Xuehua who had been quiet this whole time
couldnâ€™t hold it in anymore. â€œYang Chen, Ruoxi, whose child is
Back when the adults were talking, Lanlan sat on Minjuanâ€™s lap
obediently. She stroked her full belly and dozed off, having eaten a full
Wang Ma explained it to her while the others sat quietly. â€œXuehua, her
name is Lanlan. You didnâ€™t know this because you werenâ€™t around at
that time. Miss is going to adopt her.â€
â€œAdopt her?!â€ Guo Xuehuaâ€™s jaw fell.
Guo Xuehua sounded troubled after hearing the whole story from Wang Ma.
â€œRuoxi, this doesnâ€™t seem like a good idea. Youâ€™re still young and
youâ€™ve only been married for less than two years. People will gossip if
you adopt a five-year-old kid before giving birth to your own.â€
