Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In the afternoon, Ling Fei and her agent drove their company car over to Director Mong&x2019;s residence.
Ling Fei was wearing an extremely expensive suit, paired with a pair of very expensive sunglasses. Her assistant was holding an umbrella over her head as they walked over to Director Mong&x2019;s front door.
Director Mong&x2019;s assistant opened the door and she really felt like rolling her eyes when she saw Ling Fei standing outside the front door.
When Jiang Yuning came to Director Mong to convince him that she could take on the role of the first female lead for his drama, she came here wearing a beggar&x2019;s costume and a wig because she wanted to dress up as Li Zhimong to impress Director Mong. How could Ling Fei appear before them dressed as though she was here for a catwalk?
&x201C;You can just wait in the courtyard first. Director Mong is having his lunch,&x201D; the young assistant informed them coldly.
&x201C;I think that Director Mong must be slightly confused right now. Our Xiao Fei has already given him a lot of face by coming all the way here to meet him. Is your Director Mong really not afraid that the investors will replace him in a blink of an eye?&x201D;
Ling Fei&x2019;s agent sneered as she threatened Director Mong&x2019;s assistant.
&x201C;Let&x2019;s see if you really have the ability to do that then. Even if you guys really have the ability to replace Director Mong, you still have to wait for him to finish his lunch!&x201D; the young assistant yelled as she pointed at the sitting area in the courtyard. &x201C;Aren&x2019;t we giving you face already?&x201D;
When Ling Fei saw how agitated her agent was, she calmed her down and stopped her immediately. &x201C;Let&x2019;s just wait.&x201D;
&x201C;Xiao Fei, she&x2019;s nothing more than an assistant.&x201D;
&x201C;Before you hit the dog, you have to see who the master is. I am going to work with Director Mong soon, so let&x2019;s give him some face,&x201D; Ling Fei replied as she patted her agent on her shoulders.
&x201C;You are right. I think that I can clearly understand your theory about how a dog should be treated just by watching both of you.&x201D; After that, Director Mong&x2019;s assistant turned around and walked back into the house before she told Director Mong, who had just put down his chopsticks, &x201C;Director Mong, the two people outside just called me a dog.&x201D;
As soon as Director Mong heard his assistant&x2019;s words, he stood up immediately and walked out to the courtyard to meet Ling Fei and her agent.
When Director Mong looked at Ling Fei, there was only ridicule and indifference in his eyes. He took out his cell phone from his pocket immediately, and made a phone call to his investor in front of Ling Fei. &x201C;I don&x2019;t need you to invest in my drama anymore. I will replace you with another investor immediately. Did you really think that I need to beg you to invest in this drama?&x201D;
The person on the other side of the line was obviously caught off guard.
Although they were only suppressing Director Mong because they had already obtained some sort of benefit from the Bai family, they had never thought about withdrawing any capital from his drama.
However, Director Mong had already hung up the phone and placed his cell phone back into his pocket without giving the other party a chance to speak.
&x201C;Young girl, you are putting on a lot of airs.&x201D;
Ling Fei was a little nervous because of the expression on Director Mong&x2019;s face.
&x201C;Director Mong, our Xiao Fei&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Shut up! Was I talking to you? Who do you think you are to have the audacity to talk to me directly?&x201D; Director Mong snapped at Ling Fei&x2019;s agent as he pointed his finger at her. &x201C;Xiao Fei this. Xiao Fei that. Why don&x2019;t you tell me now? What&x2019;s so good about her?&x201D;
Ling Fei&x2019;s agent was flustered and she started coughing.
&x201C;And you, Ling Fei. Previously, Jiang Yuning finally succeeded in changing my views about the young actresses in the entertainment industry but when I look at you and the way that you are behaving, I am once again filled with doubt and disgust, especially at you! This is because in your eyes, there is no such thing as being down to earth, and there is no hard work and progress because you think that you can just snatch and grab anything that you want without putting in any effort at all. You don&x2019;t even care whether you are really suitable for the role. Is this something to be proud of?&x201D;
&x201C;Replace the director? Who gave you the courage to do that? Who do you think you are? Does your agency know their own place?&x201D;
&x201C;Do you really not know how horrible your acting is or are you just pretending to be dumb? I have seen some of your dramas and movies, and your acting is not even comparable to a stone on the street. You want to pressure me and threaten to replace me? I am telling you now. I am Director Mong and I am not going to take this nonsense from you.&x201D;
&x201C;Director Mong, don&x2019;t you think that you are going overboard and what you are saying is too much?&x201D; Ling Fei&x2019;s agent stepped up to defend her immediately.
&x201C;I am too much? Did you even look at yourselves in the mirror this morning? Think about how you are trying to pressure me and force me just because I do not want to cast her in my drama.&x201D;
&x201C;You want to be in my drama? Maybe in your next life! Ling Fei, I am telling you now that my drama is not something that you can handle. This is because the national broadcast station approached me to produce this drama, and it is going to be featured on national television in order to commemorate the work and sacrifices of our country&x2019;s heroes. You might think that you can suppress me and pressure me into caving in, but now that I have already reacted, do you really think that you will still be able to receive any good or big resources in future? I can tell you that no one will cast you in their dramas anymore, no matter how powerful your gold sponsor is!&x201D;
Ling Fei and her team were all silent at this time because they did not know what to say anymore. All along, they had always thought that the reason why there was rarely any news or updates on
However, they would not have expected that the reason why there was not much news about the drama was simply because the drama was still in its preparatory stage and it was common for things to go unannounced at this stage of a production.
At this time, Vera suddenly appeared in front of Director Mong&x2019;s house.
As soon as the young assistant saw Vera, she quickly rushed over and greeted her with a smile on her face. &x201C;Sister Vera, why are you here today? Did Sister Yuning come along with you?&x201D;
&x201C;The weather is so hot nowadays, so Yuning asked me to bring some tea leaves that she has prepared over to Director Mong. This soothing tea is good to eliminate stress and heatiness.&x201D;
&x201C;Did Sister Yuning make some for me too?&x201D; the young assistant looked at Vera with big and bright eyes.
&x201C;What do you think?&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Yuning is really attentive. I really felt as though I was going to vomit blood because of all this frustration that I am feeling right now,&x201D; the young assistant replied as she took the bag of tea leaves from Vera&x2019;s hands.
&x201C;Xiao Guo, send the guests away, and then make me a cup of tea,&x201D; Director Mong instructed immediately.
Xiao Guo listened to Director Mong&x2019;s instructions and she turned around to ask Ling Fei and her team to leave immediately. At this time, Xiao Chennan suddenly arrived in front of Director Mong&x2019;s house in his company car.
A short while later, the young film emperor appeared in a very low-key and simple manner in front of everyone.
Xiao Guo hurried over to greet him immediately. &x201C;Brother Nan, why are you here today?&x201D;
&x201C;I heard that&x2026;Director Mong is in trouble?&x201D; Xiao Chennan replied as he glanced at Ling Fei and her team. The corners of his mouth were slightly curved upwards but the coldness in his expression made Ling Fei clench her fists because she was so nervous.
&x201C;Chennan, I appreciate your intentions but I have already resolved the matter on my own. Since you are already here, please come in and have a seat.&x201D; Director Mong pointed at the tea leaves that the young assistant was holding in her hands. &x201C;The tea leaves that Yuning has prepared will definitely be of finest quality. You will definitely regret if you do not come in and taste it. Do not be bothered by these irrelevant people.&x201D;
&x201C;If that is the case then I would definitely love to enjoy some tea with you.&x201D; Xiao Chennan walked past Ling Fei as he smiled at Director Mong but after walking a few more steps, he turned around and said to Ling Fei, &x201C;Stop trying so hard already because, to be honest&x2026;it&x2019;s really frustrating to be liked by someone like you. Please keep your distance from me in future. It is really annoying.&x201D;
Xiao Chennan did not speak in a very loud voice, but his voice was not meek either.
After listening to Xiao Chennan&x2019;s words, Director Mong&x2019;s assistant could only feel that it was very refreshing.
This Ling Fei was really an idiot.
&x201C;Miss Ling, please&x2026;&x201D;
Ling Fei, her agent, and her own assistant were then kicked out of Director Mong&x2019;s house.
&x201C;Sister Vera, would you like to come in and sit for a short while? I will prepare the best fruits in the house for you.&x201D;
&x201C;No, thank you. I am just here to deliver the tea leaves on behalf of Yuning.&x201D; Vera shook her head immediately. &x201C;Since you have already resolved the matter here today, I believe that the enemy will still try to attack Yuning, so I have to go back and get ready for war.&x201D;
