Thanks to her nightmares the night before, Ruan Tian had hardly been able to sleep, so when she went to the script reading the next day she had dark circles under her eyes. However, on her way there, she happened to look at the big screen hanging over a shopping mall that was flashing a financial report and caught a glimpse of a familiar face.
It was a beautiful and somehow familiar face that did not look at all boyish, but in a flash, it was gone.
The man that flashed by on the big screen had been wearing a black suit and a cold frown. His cold yet delicate face stood out in the crowd and didn’t show a hint of anxiety or nervousness, instead, it gave a calm and in-control feeling despite his sickly pale complexion.
The picture was only there for a few seconds before the screen flashed and changed to something else.
Ruan Tian scratched her head and assumed that she was still half-asleep which was why she had mistaken the man on the screen.
Perhaps she just hadn’t seen Huai Mo for too long and had thought about him, which caused her to be a bit muddled and randomly mistake a man on a billboard for him.
After all, how could two people with such completely different temperaments be the same person?
Ruan Tian shook her head and put the matter behind her.
At the script reading, Ruan Tian saw Shao Chengyue again for the second time.
He didn’t take the initiative to greet her so Ruan Tian also pretended she hadn’t seen him.
Ruan Tian’s condition wasn’t very good today. Whenever it was her turn to read the lines she would feel weak and unable to concentrate properly. She sniffled a few times and started to suspect that she probably had a fever.
Shao Chengyue was feeling vaguely dissatisfied. His father had educated him strictly from a young age, so he had always had high expectations for the people he worked with.
After all, this was the actress who would be working opposite of him for the next four months. If she was allowed to slack off like this, wouldn’t that mean the whole project would be in vain?
Shao Chengyue had a cold and grim expression, and he calmly said to her, “If you can’t guarantee a minimal amount of professionalism as an actress, it would be better for you to leave the circle and go home to find a new career.”
These words were a bit ugly.
At least, in Ruan Tian’s ears, they were harsh.
She hadn’t wanted to argue with Shao Chengyue at all but he still came and found her for trouble.
Of course, the blame was also partly on her for underperforming just now and getting picked out by the director.
But this Shao Chengyue was just too mean! ! !
Since this was a novel, did it mean all men were destined to be mean to her?
It was hard to be a vicious secondary character, ah.
When they reconvened after lunch, Ruan Tian began taking her reading very seriously.
As it happened, they were reading a part of the script from the thirtieth episode. In this scene, the little junior sister who had gone through calamity and come back on the edge of the God Transformation Stage had just returned to the sect. She had killed her way into the sect was looking up at the master she had admired back then. Her eyes were reddened and she said word by word: ” Master, after treating me like that, did you ever regret?”
Each word filled with bloody tears.
Ruan Tian’s eyes shone with barely restrained tears as she looked at the man in front of her. Her eyes were moist and reddened, and each word she spoke contained a faint tremble as if concealing great emotion.
When Shao Chengyue faced her reddened eyes, his mind went strangely blank and he forgot his lines. He scrambled for a moment trying to recall them.
Meanwhile, a tear slipped down Ruan Tian’s cheek.
Shao Chengyue tightened his grip on the script as he thought dazedly that, surprisingly, this girl could control her tears so well.
After the scene finished, Ruan Tian looked at Shao Chengyue strangely. There was a long pause and then she said: “You forgot your lines.”
In fact, she had almost wanted to directly return his same words to him: Since you can’t remember your lines, it would be better for you to leave the circle and go home to find a new career! ! !
After the script reading, Ruan Tian went to the pharmacy to buy some cold medicine.
She was thinking about resting at home for a few days to recover but suddenly she received a message from Jiang Lili informing her of a notification from the production crew of ‘Destined Immortals’ that filming would be starting in advance and that all members needed to arrive on set by this Saturday. When Ruan Tian saw the message Jiang Lili sent, she felt a bit muddled and confused. She blinked uncertainly and tilted her little head before finally giving up and deciding to call Jiang Lili directly.
Because of her cold, her voice was strange and nasally as she asked “If I’m going to start filming on Saturday what are we going to do about the variety show?”
When Jiang Lili heard Ruan Tian’s nasally voice, she screamed: “Why is your voice like that? Are you sick again? Have you seen a doctor?! Don’t just go to the pharmacy and buy some cold medicine and think that’s enough!”
After nagging for a while like this, Jiang Lili suddenly remembered her question and answered, “The variety show was only giving us contracts on an episode-by-episode basis, so you can just not sign on for the next episode since you’re going to be entering filming.”
