Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
&x201C;You wanted to see me so urgently just to ask me about the items that Lu Jingzhi had sold off in the past?&x201D; Gu Pingsheng asked Jiang Yuning as he sat at the pavilion. He thought that Jiang Yuning was very strange. &x201C;Why do you want to know?&x201D;
&x201C;I want to get those items back for second brother,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied. &x201C;I know how important those items must have been to him.&x201D;
Gu Pingsheng pondered for a little while before he sighed. &x201C;I understand your intention, but I feel that you should just give up already. With Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s current status, he would have already easily traced those items back by now if he wanted to&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;That is his problem. As you understand, I have never been able to do anything for him. Therefore, I would really like to be able to do something for him, uncle.&x201D;
Gu Pingsheng raised his hand to look at the time. It was almost time for him to leave for the airport. Therefore, he quickly got down to business and he wrote down three items on a piece of paper for Jiang Yuning. &x201C;If you really want to get those items back for him, you should look for these three items. However, I personally think that you would not be able to afford any of those items even if you worked at Guangying Media for the rest of your life.&x201D;
&x201C;Then I would willingly be a slave for the rest of my life. What is the big deal?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. &x201C;Uncle, are you going to take advantage of my situation then?&x201D;
&x201C;Get back to work,&x201D; Gu Pingsheng said as he rolled his eyes and sighed. &x201C;I don&x2019;t want Jingzhi to suffer anymore injustice. If Jingzhi wants to get married, you had better agree to get married to him. I don&x2019;t care if you want to focus on your acting career. If you continue to keep Jingzhi waiting for you, I will let you die a very horrible death.&x201D;
&x201C;Uncle, don&x2019;t worry. You can be rest assured. Second brother and I have already talked about this matter. We have decided to let nature take its course!&x201D;
How could nature take its course when it comes to marriage?
&x201C;I am just afraid that you will hurt Jingzhi again. I don&x2019;t want that child to get cheated after all that he has done for you,&x201D; Gu Pingsheng said as he stared at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;You can go now.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning picked up the piece of paper that Gu Pingsheng had scribbled on and she quickly took out her cell phone to take a picture of the paper before carefully placing it into her purse.
Shen Yichen peeked at the piece of paper and although he only saw the first item on the list, he could already tell the value of that item. It was no wonder why Jiang Yuning said that she needed to earn a lot of money.
&x201C;I know that the first item on the list had recently appeared on the auction market not too long ago. It was then successfully taken away by a collector for nine digits,&x201D; Shen Yichen could not help but say to Jiang Yuning. &x201C;Based on your current situation, even if you continue filming without sleeping for years, it would still be impossible for you to gain that much money.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning glared at Shen Yichen and said, &x201C;If I can never save that much money in years, then I will just spend a lifetime saving up for that amount of money to get that item back!&x201D;
Shen Yichen was speechless was he heard her reply.
This must be love.
Very soon, the car that they were in entered the mountains. As the temperature had already plummeted, Shen Yichen placed a blanket that he had prepared onto Jiang Yuning&x2019;s leg. &x201C;The shooting location is at a very scenic spot at the top of the mountain. Therefore, it is going to be very cold. However, you don&x2019;t need to worry because I have already prepared a coat for you. When we arrive at the location, we should go and meet the director first.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. I will just follow your arrangements.&x201D; The sky was still dark so Jiang Yuning could not see the scenery outside.
When they finally arrived at their destination, it was already eight o&x2019;clock in the morning.
They quickly settled in the town as Shen Yichen brought Jiang Yuning to meet the director for the shooting today.
&x201C;To be honest, the shooting today is a very simple one. Jiang Yuning will be holding onto an umbrella as she walks across the ancient bridge. When she arrives at the centre of the bridge, she will turn her head around and look back, as if she is waiting for her lover to appear. Jiang Yuning should be well equipped for this shooting. I have seen her recording of
Subsequently, Jiang Yuning was pushed into the dressing room to get ready.
At this time, the news that Jiang Yuning was shooting today started spreading amongst the staff.
&x201C;What? Jiang Yuning? She is the artiste that my daughter hates the most!&x201D;
&x201C;Is there something wrong with the director? This is an advertisement to promote a scenic spot to the public to ignite their interest. The purpose of the shooting is to promote and publicize this scenic spot. Will anyone like the advertisement if Jiang Yuning was the artiste in it?&x201D;
&x201C;I heard that she is already signed to Guangying Media. Therefore, it is not surprising that she was able to get this job.&x201D;
&x201C;But I really hate her!&x201D;
&x201C;So, what can you do even if you hate her? Do you think you will be able to get the director to replace her with someone else?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could hear the people outside arguing amongst one another as she had her makeup applied for her. The makeup artist could not help but feel a little embarrassed and was afraid that Jiang Yuning would not be able to hold back her anger and suddenly burst out in rage.
However, Jiang Yuning sat silently as the makeup artist continued working. It was almost as though she could not hear what the people were saying about her.
The makeup artist heaved a huge sigh of relief when she was finally done with Jiang Yuning&x2019;s makeup. Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face really suited a traditional look. She had almond-shaped eyes with single eyelids and a very high nose bridge. When she donned traditional costumes, she looked like a traditional beauty from the olden days.
&x201C;Miss Jiang, you will look really beautiful when you wear traditional costumes. You could try acting in traditional dramas in the future.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning took a look at her reflection in the mirror and suddenly felt that it was indeed a very good suggestion.
Very soon, the staff hurried over and quickly helped Jiang Yuning to put on the traditional clothing that had red and white embroidery on it.
The costume designer stared at Jiang Yuning after she had put the clothing on. She looked extremely beautiful and elegant. Was this really Jiang Yuning?
Oh, my goodness!
Jiang Yuning had already known that she was suited for traditional costumes, but had never paid much attention to this fact in the past. However, she thought that it was really strange when everyone started staring at her when she walked out of the dressing room.
&x201C;Is that really Jiang Yuning? How can she look so good in a traditional costume?&x201D;
There was also a staff member who was staring so hard at Jiang Yuning that he walked right into a trunk that was right in front of him.
&x201C;I knew it,&x201D; Shen Yichen exclaimed as soon as he saw Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Just the thought of my picture being hung at the entrance of a scenic spot makes me feel like a monkey,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said helplessly.
&x201C;Go and have a look at the scenery around you. Walk around the bridge and familiarize yourself with the shooting location,&x201D; Shen Yichen said as he smiled. He walked up to Jiang Yuning as he placed his coat around her, but Jiang Yuning quickly push it away.
&x201C;I will only wear my second brother&x2019;s.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then, I will prepare a special one for you in future.&x201D;
&x201C;That would be more acceptable then.&x201D; After that, Jiang Yuning walked up to the bridge as the producer and staff were still busy preparing the artificial rainfall. Therefore, Jiang Yuning had the opportunity to walk up and down the bridge a few times.
The bridge was slightly arched and the other end of the bridge was not clearly visible. Jiang Yuning familiarize herself with the bridge as she waited for the director and crew to be ready. However, the weather in the mountains changed rapidly then and it suddenly started to rain.
&x201C;It is good that it is raining. This will save us a lot of trouble. Let us start shooting now,&x201D; the director quickly ordered.
Jiang Yuning took her position as she held onto the umbrella and slowly started walking on the bridge. However, as there was moss on the bridge, Jiang Yuning stepped on it and almost fell into the lake because the fence of the bridge was very shallow.
&x201C;Jiang Yuning!&x201D; Everyone suddenly exclaimed.
Fortunately, after swaying a little, she regained her balance and stood up straight.
When the director saw what had happened, he suddenly stood up and said, &x201C;What just happened?&x201D;
The staff who had rushed over to help Jiang Yuning quickly replied, &x201C;Director, there is moss over here.&x201D;
&x201C;I have already asked you guys to clean up the entire bridge! I want the person who is responsible for cleaning the bridge to step up now,&x201D; the director yelled.
