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 delightful.
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.
&x201C;Director Shen, can we wait to announce my official employment with Guangying Media on the sixth of next month instead of directly announcing it now?&x201D;
&x201C;That is just a few days away anyway. In the meantime, I will contact the production team of
&x201C;I want to start afresh officially on that day.&x201D;
&x201C;I look forward to further surprises from you.&x201D; Director Shen said before he stood and left the Gu mansion with the employment contract in his hand.
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.
&x201C;Second brother, you can be rest assured that no one will be able to bully me in the future.&x201D;
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.
&x201C;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,&x201D; Gu Pingsheng said as he could no longer stand looking at the two of them.
&x201C;Alright then, uncle&x2026;I will come and visit you again soon and I will surprise you then!&x201D; Jiang Yuning said with a smile on her face.
&x201C;Go, go, leave now,&x201D; Gu Pingsheng replied as he waved his hand at them.
As her employment with Guangying Media was still a confidential affair, for the next few days, Jiang Yuning was very free&x2014;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 wedding dinner.
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?
&x201C;There are only a few days left until your elder sister&x2019;s wedding. You had better be practicing so that you do not embarrass your elder sister on that day.&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t worry, I will not embarrass her,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly replied. &x201C;On that day, I bet that you would be so proud of me.&x201D;
&x201C;That is good. This dress looks good on you.&x201D;
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. &x201C;I have already sent the video that I recorded in Chairman Gu&x2019;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.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then!&x201D; Jiang Yuning was in an extremely good mood when she saw the quaint tea house.
&x201C;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?&x201D;
&x201C;No.&x201D; 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.
&x201C;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 added&x2026;&x201D;
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 very comfortable.
That young sister was very sweet!
&x201C;We have decided to use her.&x201D;
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 the filming.
&x201C;Director Cui, you&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I heard that there would be an audition today and I specially came to take a look. She is really good at this,&x201D; Director Cui said to Shen Yichen. &x201C;Did she study specially for this audition?&x201D;
&x201C;I heard that her grandfather used to enjoy tea and that was why she learned how to prepare it.&x201D;
&x201C;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.&x201D; 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 preparing tea.
Shen Yichen smiled at Jiang Yuning after she had finished recording the video. He was in a good mood. &x201C;You have been selected for the role.&x201D;
&x201C;Ah?&x201D; 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, &x201C;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.&x201D;
&x201C;I&x2026;my reputation is actually really bad now,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied sadly.
&x201C;You should have more confidence in yourself. Nobody could possible have a negative perception regarding this show.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then.&x201D; Jiang Yuning was not that confident because she felt that she had always been unlucky.
&x201C;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?&x201D; Shen Yichen asked Jiang Yuning on the way to the villa.
&x201C;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?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Shen Yichen.
&x201C;We do not have anything planned for you at the moment because your reputation is still so bad.&x201D; Shen Yichen could not help but to laugh when he heard her sentence.
&x201C;Director Shen, do you know that you are going to get beat up if you continue saying things like that?!&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she glared at him.
&x201C;Haha, just go home already,&x201D; 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.
&x201C;Mr. Lu.&x201D; Shen Yichen greeted respectfully as soon as he saw him.
&x201C;Hey.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied.
&x201C;Second brother!&x201D; Jiang Yuning yelled as she ran over and hugged Lu Jingzhi.
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&x2019;s driver suddenly turned around and said, &x201C;Director Shen, looking at them makes me want to fall in love.&x201D;
Shen Yichen glared coldly at the driver and then replied, &x201C;No, you do not want to be in love.&x201D;
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.
