Chapter 63: Had They Wanted to Embarrass Her?
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
The situation should have been extremely awkward between the three men
sitting together because Lu Jingzhi was usually very cold to outsiders.
Furthermore, Shen Yichen was also a man of few words. However, with Jiang
Yuning around, the atmosphere became unexpectedly harmonious and
Shen Yichen suddenly realized that Jiang Yuning had a very magical
existence. She could respond instantly and appease Gu Pingsheng whenever
he had a question and she was also an extrovert, thus able to talk to
anyone that she had just met and make the atmosphere fun and less
awkward. Throughout the entire dinner, there was nothing but laughter at
the dining table.
Why was an actress like this hated by the netizens?
Shen Yichen was puzzled. If the public could see this side of Jiang
Yuning, he was certain that she would be a very popular actress.
He finally understood why Lu Jingzhi would fall for someone like her.
However, Shen Yichen did not know about the strong emotional attachment
between the both of them.
After dinner, Jiang Yuning signed the employment contract and officially
became an employee of Guangying Media.
“Director Shen, can we wait to announce my official employment with
Guangying Media on the sixth of next month instead of directly announcing
“That is just a few days away anyway. In the meantime, I will contact
the production team of first to see if they are interested to give you
the role.” Shen Yichen did not object to Jiang Yuning’s suggestion
because he heard Jiang Yuning mention that she would be playing the piano
for Hui Yuxi’s wedding, which was going to be on the sixth of the next
month. If Jiang Yuning were to perform at the wedding dinner, the media
would naturally be covering her and then the company could save on
further expenses on promoting and announcing that she was officially a
part of Guangying Media.
“I want to start afresh officially on that day.”
“I look forward to further surprises from you.” Director Shen said
before he stood and left the Gu mansion with the employment contract in
Everything seemed to be going perfectly well for her. Jiang Yuning felt a
sense of warmth and security as she looked at the steady and mature man
who was sitting next to her.
“Second brother, you can be rest assured that no one will be able to
bully me in the future.”
Lu Jingzhi looked down at Jiang Yuning as she stared right back into his
eyes. He finally realized why he had always been captivated with her and
why he was so in love with her. It was because there seemed to be a light
glowing around her and Jiang Yuning was shining so radiantly.
“Go home if you are going to be acting like this. I do not want to see
the both of you acting lovey-dovey around each other,” Gu Pingsheng
said as he could no longer stand looking at the two of them.
“Alright then, uncle…I will come and visit you again soon and I will
surprise you then!” Jiang Yuning said with a smile on her face.
“Go, go, leave now,” Gu Pingsheng replied as he waved his hand at
As her employment with Guangying Media was still a confidential affair,
for the next few days, Jiang Yuning was very free—all she did was to
sleep and study her script for .
During this time, Fu Yahui called Jiang Yuning over to the mountain villa
to try on the dress that they had already prepared for her to wear to the
Huo Yuxi and Fu Yahui had actually gone to this extend to prepare the
dress that she was supposed to wear to the wedding dinner. Were they so
afraid that she would steal the limelight from Huo Yuxi?
Jiang Yuning did not agree with what they were doing but did not want to
waste any time arguing with Fu Yahui and so, she went to the mountain
villa to try it on.
It was an old-fashioned yellow khaki dress. Were they really trying to
make her look like a pianist that they had hired externally?
“There are only a few days left until your elder sister’s wedding.
You had better be practicing so that you do not embarrass your elder
sister on that day.”
“Don’t worry, I will not embarrass her,” Jiang Yuning quickly
replied. “On that day, I bet that you would be so proud of me.”
“That is good. This dress looks good on you.”
Jiang Yuning stood in front of the mirror and spun around a few times as
she wore the yellow-colored dress. She wondered where Fu Yahui could have
found the dress that made her look ten years older than she was. On
second thoughts, the dress could have actually been prepared by Huo Yuxi.
Had they wanted to embarrass her?
Jiang Yuning held back and did not show any unpleasant emotions. Anyway,
she would be able to witness a good show in a few more days.
A few days later, Shen Yichen sent someone to pick Jiang Yuning up and
send her to the largest tea house in Luo City for a video recording
session. “I have already sent the video that I recorded in Chairman
Gu’s house to the director in charge of the documentary program. He was
very interested in you after viewing the video and he had requested for a
retake of the video today.”
“Alright then!” Jiang Yuning was in an extremely good mood when she
saw the quaint tea house.
“Today, you will be shooting a segment on how to prepare and make green
tea. Do you need the tea master to teach you more about it?”
“No.” Jiang Yuning shook her head.
Shen Yichen was extremely proud of Jiang Yuning and the production team
could start shooting the video immediately without any delay.
“The three-point requirements of preparing green tea refers to the
upper, middle, and lower methods. The general requirements for preparing
green tea is higher than for the preparation for any other tea. First of
all, you have to fill the cup with 70% boiling water and the temperature
of the water has to be moderate. Later on, the green tea leaves should be
Shen Yichen looked at Jiang Yuning as she performed and he felt that she
was very natural and likable in front of the camera.
Even the production crew and staff could not help but sigh, similarly
feeling that Jiang Yuning was very likable and that she made them feel
That young sister was very sweet!
“We have decided to use her.”
Shen Yichen did not notice his presence at first until he heard a male
voice behind him. Shen Yichen turned around immediately and saw that the
director of the documentary program was standing at the door, watching
“Director Cui, you…”
“I heard that there would be an audition today and I specially came to
take a look. She is really good at this,” Director Cui said to Shen
Yichen. “Did she study specially for this audition?”
“I heard that her grandfather used to enjoy tea and that was why she
learned how to prepare it.”
“You can bring her over tonight to sign the contract. After watching so
many different candidates, she is the most decent one out of them.”
After he had spoken, Director Cui continued observing Jiang Yuning as she
continued preparing the tea. As she was so professional and her skills
were exceptional, he also took the opportunity to learn some skills in
Shen Yichen smiled at Jiang Yuning after she had finished recording the
video. He was in a good mood. “You have been selected for the role.”
“Ah?” Jiang Yuning was surprised that she was selected so quickly.
Not only was she selected for the role, but Jiang Yuning also felt that
time had passed very quickly for the filming today. She felt that it was
the most relaxing and pleasant filming that she had ever participated in
ever since she debuted. She was wearing a green-colored cheongsam and it
was an exceptionally hot and sunny day, but it was perfect because she
was having a great time and she really enjoyed preparing tea.
Shen Yichen sent Jiang Yuning back to her villa in the evening and
informed her, “The show will be launched in mid-April and at that time,
it should be able to brush away all the negative perception that the
public has of you.”
“I…my reputation is actually really bad now,” Jiang Yuning replied
“You should have more confidence in yourself. Nobody could possible
have a negative perception regarding this show.”
“Alright then.” Jiang Yuning was not that confident because she felt
that she had always been unlucky.
“Huo Yuxi is getting married in two days. Guangying Media has already
prepared the announcement that we are going to make on that day. Are you
ready for it?” Shen Yichen asked Jiang Yuning on the way to the villa.
“I have a lot of things to prepare in these two days. If you have any
activities planned for me, can we reschedule it to a further date?”
Jiang Yuning asked Shen Yichen.
“We do not have anything planned for you at the moment because your
reputation is still so bad.” Shen Yichen could not help but to laugh
when he heard her sentence.
“Director Shen, do you know that you are going to get beat up if you
continue saying things like that?!” Jiang Yuning asked as she glared at
“Haha, just go home already,” Shen Yichen said as he got out of the
car to open the car door for Jiang Yuning. At this time, Lu Jingzhi had
also just stepped out of the villa.
“Mr. Lu.” Shen Yichen greeted respectfully as soon as he saw him.
“Hey.” Lu Jingzhi replied.
“Second brother!” Jiang Yuning yelled as she ran over and hugged Lu
Lu Jingzhi put his arms around Jiang Yuning as the both of them walked
into the villa and shut the front door.
At this time, Shen Yichen’s driver suddenly turned around and said,
“Director Shen, looking at them makes me want to fall in love.”
Shen Yichen glared coldly at the driver and then replied, “No, you do
not want to be in love.”
In fact, there was actually no lovey-dovey scenario in the villa at that
moment because Lu Jingzhi had prepared a gift for Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning was so excited and she eagerly unwrapped her gift.
He had prepared a beautiful dress, jewelry, and everything that she
needed to use the day after tomorrow for the wedding dinner. He had
everything ready for her.
