Early the next morning, all the false news and rumors that Xu Beishen had spread about Jiang Yuning had indeed been completely removed from the internet. Several public accounts and entertainment blogs were afraid after receiving the lawyer&x2019;s letter from Guangying Media. They did not dare to continue spreading rumors or create any more trouble on the internet.
Vera received a phone call early the next morning, instructing her to bring a set of clothes for Jiang Yuning to the presidential suite of Hilton Hotel.
What exactly happened last night?
Were Jiang Yuning and the second young master Lu having a conflict because of the scandal? Did Jiang Yuning leave home?
Vera was just thinking about whether there would be any possibility for Jiang Yuning to continue her career in Luo City if she had really broken up with the second young master Lu.
If that really happened, would she have to bring Jiang Yuning abroad to restart her career and life?
In fact, Vera had been overthinking everything.
Jiang Yuning was snoozing like sleeping beauty in the presidential suite at the moment, after a beautiful night with Lu Jingzhi.
After entering the presidential suite, Vera passed Jiang Yuning her clothes before she sat down on the sofa and asked, &x201C;Do you know that the scandal and news about you and Jin Mingchen has been withdrawn completely?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning rolled around on the bed for a little while before she finally got up and went to the bathroom to wash up. &x201C;Last night, second brother got angry because of the scandal that Xu Beishen spread about me. Therefore, he called her brother and her out for a chat, and Xu Beishen was so scared that she broke out in tears. It was a really exciting scene to watch last night. So, I believe that Xu Beishen would not dare to mess with me using any despicable means anymore. However, she is still not convinced and she has challenged me to a fair fight during the next recording for the episode of the variety show.&x201D;
&x201C;She is beautiful, she is a degree holder from a prestigious university, and she has a pretty remarkable family background. Why does she want to continue wasting her time on you?&x201D; Vera asked as she pointed her finger at Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I guess she wants to challenge me until she can completely admit defeat.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. She is only giving you the opportunity to prove her wrong and utterly defeat her. Anyway, I have already asked the music composer if she would help you with the song that you want to write for the second young master Lu. Would you like to meet up with her?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning nodded her head as soon as she walked out of the bathroom.
&x201C;Thank you for your hard work.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning had once studied music in the past. If the Jiang family had not gone bankrupt, she would probably have chosen a career in music or singing.
Unfortunately, she had almost forgotten everything that she knew about music as she did not quite have the chance to explore music or any musical instruments after entering the entertainment industry. That was why she needed professional guidance to write her song.
&x201C;I would also suggest that you make some time to meet up with the director of
Actually, it was not surprising at all.
This was because, although Jiang Yuning had gained some positive reviews because of her acting in
&x201C;If that is how they are going to react, then why did they hand me the drama script in the first place?&x201D;
&x201C;The other party told me that they handed the script to the wrong person!&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was dumbfounded.
&x201C;Contact the director now and tell him that we will be right there. I am certain that I will be able to convince him with my skills.&x201D;
Vera immediately took her cell phone out to call Director Mong, who was the director of
After coming out from Hilton Hotel, the both of them headed directly to Director Mong&x2019;s office.
Director Mong was a very patriotic director. Most of his works consisted of very well-produced and highly-acclaimed spy or war dramas that had always achieved incredible ratings. However, the downside was that the audience for his dramas were very limited.
Basically, those who really enjoyed this drama genre were usually those from the older generations.
Although this was the case, Director Mong did not mind. Furthermore, he never liked to use the younger artistes, let alone a young artiste who was already blacklisted and had a bad reputation in the entertainment industry.
About half an hour later, Jiang Yuning and Vera arrived at Director Mong&x2019;s office and at this time, another actress was just leaving his office after an audition.
However, when the other party saw Jiang Yuning, she did not take her seriously because she did not regard Jiang Yuning as a threat at all.
Director Mong looked very gentle and he wears a pair of black framed glasses. It was evident that he was a very fast-paced and strict person when it came to work.
&x201C;I have already said that I am not interested in casting her in my drama at all. I do not know why my drama script was handed over to Guangying Media and subsequently passed on to her. However, it is absolutely impossible for me to cast a young artiste, let alone a blacklisted artiste in my drama. Furthermore, it is old news in the entertainment industry that Jiang Yuning does not have any acting skills at all.&x201D;
Director Mong emphasized his attitude to his personal assistant as he walked over and sat down at his work desk.
&x201C;But Director Mong, they are already waiting for you at the door right now. You had promised to give her half an hour to prove her worth.&x201D;
&x201C;Just go out and ask them to leave now,&x201D; Director Mong instructed his personal assistant before he looked at the drama script that he had just printed.
The personal assistant was helpless as there was nothing else she could do. Therefore, she went to the door and when she opened the door, she saw Vera waiting at the door with a young man standing beside her.
&x201C;Where is Jiang Yuning?&x201D;
&x201C;I am right here,&x201D; the young man replied as soon as she heard the assistant&x2019;s question&x2026;
The personal assistant was startled and she scratched her head, unable to comprehend what was happening. &x201C;Isn&x2019;t Jiang Yuning a woman?&x201D;
&x201C;I am a woman, but I am dressed as Li Zhimong from
The personal assistant looked up and down at Jiang Yuning with an extremely shocked expression on her face. &x201C;Not bad at all. Wait here for a moment. I will go and get the director now.&x201D;
After a short while, the assistant finally managed to drag Director Mong to the front door to meet with Vera and Jiang Yuning. Director Mong was a little surprised when he saw the young man dressed as a beggar in shabby clothing standing in front of the door.
&x201C;You&x2026;are Jiang Yuning?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, I am Jiang Yuning. Director Mong, I know that you have your doubts about my acting skills. I have decided to come here today as I want to prove my abilities to you in person. I do not need half an hour of your time, ten minutes would be sufficient to show you what I am capable of. After that, if you still think that my acting skills are not good enough, then I will give up and I promise not to bother you again,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she greeted the other party.
The expression on Director Mong&x2019;s face improved significantly as he replied in a gentler manner, &x201C;I usually do not use young actresses with less experience in any of my historical dramas&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;However, I really think that you should give the younger generation a chance to prove themselves, Director Mong. I want you to understand that it is not only the older generation who are patriotic, but there are also some amongst younger generation who are full of vitality and love for the country and would stop at nothing to devote their lives to the country.&x201D;
&x201C;You do not have to listen to any more of my explanation. I have already prepared a part of the script I would like to act out for you so you are able to judge my acting skills. What do you think?&x201D;
Since Jiang Yuning was already all dressed up, even Director Mong&x2019;s personal assistant was moved by her sincerity.
When Jiang Yuning looked at Director Mong, he finally replied, &x201C;Okay then. Come on in.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning and Vera exchanged glances with one another, as though they had just won a golden ticket.
Immediately after she entered the office, Jiang Yuning stood in front of Director Mong and informed him, &x201C;I will act out the scene where Li Zhimong decides to sacrifice herself for the sake of the villagers. However, I might need your personal assistant to help me out with the play.&x201D;
&x201C;No problem!&x201D; the young assistant replied as she raised her hand happily. The young assistant sat on the ground and started crying immediately.
Jiang Yuning lowered her head before she took a deep breath. When she looked up once again, she was already completely absorbed in the role of the character that she was playing.
After making a movement as though she was pushing the door open, Jiang Yuning immediately lay on the ground and she looked at the young assistant with an eager expression on her face. &x201C;Brother, are you okay? Are all the other villagers alright?&x201D;
&x201C;Go&x2026;hurry up and leave&x2026;the enemy will find you if you continue staying here&x2026;Go!&x201D;
&x201C;But I do not want to drag the innocent villagers into this matter. I have to surrender myself. The villagers and you will be safe as soon as I surrender.&x201D; After that, Li Zhimong stood up before she brushed the dirt off her body and wiped off the tears in her eyes. As she moved forward, she looked back at the young man and said, &x201C;When you grow up, remember to serve your country. Do not forget this&x2026;&x201D;
The last expression on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face, which was a fearless expression showing that she had not lived enough but had to surrender in order to move forward, caught Director Mong by surprise.
Director Mong continued looking at Jiang Yuning and he was pleasantly surprised because he would not have expected such skills and talent to be hidden within such a simple girl.
In just three minutes, Jiang Yuning&x2019;s acting had managed to objectively changed Director Mong&x2019;s initial evaluation of her.
&x201C;Why have you decided to act in my drama? Don&x2019;t you know that acting in my drama will not bring you to fame or help you to gain any more fans?&x201D;
