Chapter 54: Who Would Have Thought That Jiang Yuning Actually Had the
Guts to Come
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Lu Jingzhi, who had already put on a black suit, bent over to look at the
screen of the laptop that Jiang Yuning had just turned on. He frowned as
he saw all the comments that had been posted about her.
Jiang Yuning had just requested Ku Jie to assign the young paparazzo as
her personal assistant when she almost hit Lu Jingzhi on the chin as she
was about to turn around.
“Why haven’t you left for work yet?” Jiang Yuning asked as she
subconsciously turned off the laptop because she did not want Lu Jingzhi
to worry about her.
“I am leaving now,” Lu Jingzhi said as he stood up and patted Jiang
Yuning gently on her head. “I have already prepared four bodyguards to
accompany and protect you when you attend your audition today.”
Jiang Yuning stood up and hugged Lu Jingzhi tightly as soon as she heard
those words. “Give me some energy and luck for today.”
“Your brother is right. You just have to do your part and not worry
about anything else because we will always have your back, okay?”
Jiang Yuning nodded her head before kissing Lu Jingzhi on the lips. “I
know what I have to do now.”
“I will wait for your good news.”
Lu Jingzhi then let go of Jiang Yuning and then headed out of the villa
Jiang Yuning looked at Lu Jingzhi’s back as he walked away from her and
she was finally clear about what she had to do. She was no longer the
miserable and lonely actress that had to fend for herself. She had two
strong man standing behind her and backing her up and therefore, she had
to live and fight for her own rights.
She went to her walk-in closet and decided that she should put on a black
Chanel dress and she paired it off with a pair of diamond earrings.
Nobody could stop her from being high-profile and dressing up beautifully.
At eight thirty in the morning, the young paparazzo arrived at Jiang
Yuning’s house as he was supposed to accompany her to Guangying Media
for the audition. He was extremely surprised when he saw the four tall,
well-built bodyguards standing in front of the villa together with Jiang
“Sister Yuning, isn’t brother-in-law overreacting? Isn’t this too
“I am not represented by any entertainment agency right now and you do
not have any experience in this. That is why he is taking all these
precautions because he is worried,” Jiang Yuning explained. “Stop
talking nonsense already. It is time for us to set off.”
“We can leave now!” The young paparazzo was very excited, but when
they finally arrived at the entrance of Guangying Media, he could no
longer smile because the entrance of Guangying Media was filled with
countless numbers of paparazzi and members of the media.
“What are you afraid of? Let’s go,” Jiang Yuning said as she tapped
the young paparazzo lightly on his shoulder. The young paparazzo pushed
the car door open and quickly rushed ahead to block the paparazzi and
reporters from getting closer to Jiang Yuning.
“Sister Yuning, you can go first. I will block them off.”
Jiang Yuning smiled and then replied, “Come over here and walk with me.
We have bodyguards protecting us.”
The reporters swarmed up and tried to get closer to Jiang Yuning for an
impromptu interview but the four bodyguards protected Jiang Yuning from
all sides and they were unable to approach or get closer to her at all.
The young paparazzo followed closely behind Jiang Yuning and very soon,
the group of six managed to enter the reception hall of Guangying Media.
Many of the staff members working for Guangying Media looked at Jiang
Yuning with contempt as they said, “Who would have thought that Jiang
Yuning actually had the guts to come…”
“Her reputation is already so bad. Why is she still coming here to
further embarrass herself?”
Jiang Yuning listened as they continued badmouthing her but could not do
anything as she did not have the ability to stop anyone from talking.
Furthermore, she was already used to all this negativity after all her
years in the entertainment industry.
Jiang Yuning was then led to the waiting area where she was supposed to
wait with the rest of the actors and actresses who were here to audition
for a role. The waiting area was divided into two different
groups—group A for the artistes who were here to audition for a leading
role, and group B for those auditioning for the supporting roles.
The people waiting at the group A waiting area were those that Jiang
Yuning often saw taking up the leading roles in other dramas. They were
well-established and well-respected actresses such as Bai Chenxi and Lin
At the same time, the actresses also turned around to look at Jiang
Yuning but they did not take her presence seriously as she was not a
threat to them at all.
Even if Huo Yuxi had come in person, there would not have been any extra
sense of superiority.
When she looked at the actresses sitting at the group B waiting area,
Jiang Yuning did not know any of them at all. Those in group B had also
stared at her and felt that she must be here to audition for a leading
Jiang Yuning did not say anything but quietly walked towards the group B
waiting area before she sat down. Everyone was surprised to see her
taking a seat at the waiting area for the supporting role.
One of the actresses waiting in the group B waiting area could no longer
control her curiosity and moved closer to Jiang Yuning before approaching
her directly. “Which role are you going to audition for?”
“Qin Tong,” Jiang Yuning replied.
“That vicious female supporting role?”
Everyone was relieved as they all felt that Jiang Yuning was actually
suited for the role of that vicious woman.
In an era where everything was constantly posted and talked about on the
internet, all the actresses would subconsciously try to avoid getting
involved with a negative and vicious role because they would be hated for
no reason and judged because of the role that they were playing.
Unexpectedly, Jiang Yuning was going to directly audition for that role.
It seemed as though she was completely confident in herself and no longer
cared about what others thought of her.
“Then, I think that you probably do not need to attend the audition
today. You can just play the role by being yourself…”
The people sitting around them started laughing and criticizing Jiang
“Sorry, I was just cracking a joke. I hope you do not mind. After all,
everyone here is part of the entertainment circle.” The girl smiled
arrogantly, but Jiang Yuning was not about to admit defeat so easily.
“You…I am afraid you cannot be counted as one of us,” Jiang Yuning
counterattacked as she looked around her. “I understand that the people
who are considered insiders in the entertainment circle are usually
recognized by the public. Do anyone of you here know what this girl’s
The people sitting around them shook their head as nobody knew the girl
“Sorry, I am also just joking.”
The girl glared at Jiang Yuning as she returned to her original seat. She
continued cursing at Jiang Yuning. “I cannot believe that an actress
like you who had scored so lowly on all your dramas would actually think
that you really are a big shot. Just wait to be laughed at already!”
Jiang Yuning did not respond to her criticism but continued focusing on
the script in her hand.
After a short while, a staff member then called out Jiang Yuning’s
name. “Group B candidate number 104, Jiang Yuning, please head to room
301 on the third floor for your audition.”
“Good luck!” The young paparazzo made a thumbs up gesture to Jiang
Yuning from not too far away where he was seated.
“Okay!” Jiang Yuning answered with a smile on her face.
In fact, none of the staff in Guangying Media could understand why Jiang
Yuning would be invited to participate in the audition after all the
trouble and scandal that she was involved with Huo Yuxi and Lu Zongye had
been shared all over the internet. It was really annoying. As they
reflected upon her previous performances in all the films and dramas that
she had appeared on in the past, the judges overseeing the audition
merely wanted to get through with her audition as a formality as soon as
Jiang Yuning entered the audition room and she could see several
high-level officers and investors of Guangying Media seated before her.
“You can choose to act out any scene for the character that you are
auditioning for,” one of the Guangying Media staff suddenly instructed
Jiang Yuning calmed herself down and she did not feel that stressed out
because she knew that the judges seated before her were probably not
interested in her audition at all.
Qin Tong was a tragic character. The first half of her life was bright
while the second half was depressing and finally, there was a moment of
redemption in her life.
Jiang Yuning eventually chose to act out a scene where Qin Tong knelt
down beside her ill father’s bedside after discovering the fact that
her father had sold off his own kidney to repay her debts.
She knelt down on the ground and then reached out a hand as though she
was holding onto her father’s hand. She then rubbed her father’s hand
gently against her face. The blood vessels on her hand were popping out
as she cried out, “Dad, why did you do that? Why?”
Then, Jiang Yuning slapped herself in the face and said, “I will buy
your kidney back now!”
Jiang Yuning tried to stand up but she staggered as though she was in
shock and was too weak to stand. Jiang Yuning did not turn around but
continued crying instead, as though she was so upset and in so much pain.
This was one of the only times where the character, who usually dared to
love and hate, showed this weak side of herself.
Initially, the judges of the audition thought that they would be
witnessing a very awkward, exaggerated, and unprofessional performance
from Jiang Yuning and had never expected her to perform way beyond their
