After breakfast, Lu Jinlang and Wen Jianing went fishing in the fish pond for a long time. In the afternoon, they went around the mountain behind.
In the evening, Yang Wenchong called Lu Jinlang and said that he had bought the car according to the brand and model Wen Jianing wanted. He had asked someone to drive it up the mountain. The rest of the formalities will also be handled by someone to help Wen Jianing.
So Lu Jinlang accompanied Wen Jianing to see the car.
Yang Wenchong was standing next to the brand-new Mercedes-Benz and was making a phone call to someone. When he saw Wen Jianing and the others, he threw the car keys to Wen Jianing.
Wen Jianing wasn’t particularly excited. He just thought that he wouldn’t have to take a taxi to the company in the future, and he wouldn’t have to ask Lu Yunan to pick him up every time.
Yang Wenchong came over after the call, and Wen Jianing said to him, “Thank you.”
He blew a kiss, “I should be the one who thanked you, baby.” He wouldn’t change the nickname he give to Wen Jianing.
Then they stayed quietly on the mountain for the next two days. Wen Tinghuan called and said that Wen Lin had finished the shooting and had come back. She asked Wen Jianing to prepare to come back and record the song.
Wen Jianing and Wen Lin were singing the theme song of ‘The Strange Fate of Hairpin and Phoenix’ that was originally decided when Huang Gang was still there. At that time, Huang Gang had an interest in making Wen Jianing and Wen Lin developed together. However, after Bai Shengzhe took over Lei Xing, he felt that it was no longer necessary. Zheng Xin also said that the two of them were completely different types of artists, and there was no need to tie them together and restrained each other.
However, the TV series had completed the creation of lyrics and songs of the theme in the initial preparation, it was written specifically for the two of them to sing together, so there was no need to change it now.
Wen Jianing went down from the mountain ahead of schedule. Since Lu Jinlang had a long vacation, he planned to stay in Lanlu for more days.
When Wen Tinghuan saw Wen Jianing’s new car, she stared at him and didn’t speak for a long time.
Wen Jianing knew that she must have thought that Lu Jinlang bought it for him, and he didn’t intend to tell the truth, because if he mentioned Yang Wenchong was involved, it would be even more complicated
Wen Tinghuan sighed and said, “Forget it, that’s okay. Anyway, he is willing to do it, so please don’t make trouble in the future.”
Wen Jianing smiled, “I know, Ting jie, don’t worry.”
Wen Tinghuan told him again, “Also, don’t let the reporter catch on to it. Just say that the company lent you a car, this kind of thing is not like other scandals, it will have a great impact on you.”
Wen Jianing nodded, indicating that he was very clear about this in his heart.
The theme song of the TV series was called ‘Asking for Happiness’ and was a rather grandiose old-style song. Before the official recording, the producer guided Wen Jianing and Wen Lin to practice for a long time before entering the recording studio.
Wen Lin was actually much better than Wen Jianing in singing. However, Wen Lin’s original voice was also relatively clear and soft, and when he sang with Wen Jianing, the effect of the whole song still sounds very good.
In the eyes of the producer, these two people were just idol singers, but after the recording, he still thought they were great and even had a private conversation with Wen Lin.
After the TV series entered the post-production stage, Wen Jianing and Wen Lin had to be busy with the pre-publicity of the TV series.
But before that, the annual event of the film industry was about to begin again. As the highest award in the domestic film industry, the Academy Award had always been the focus of filmmakers and film audiences across the country.
It was at this Academy Award that Wen Jianing lost to Lu Jinlang twice. He took a long deep breath because of this.
Lu Jinlang was not nominated for this year’s Academy Award, because Lu Jinlang only made one movie ‘October Fireworks’ which was not released this year, and the release schedule has not been set yet.
Of course, it was impossible to have Wen Jianing to be nominated again, because Wen Jianing was dead in everyone’s eyes.
So there was a very strange phenomenon this year, that was, the two topics of the Academy Award and the commemoration of Wen Jianing were tied together. There was more than a week left for the award ceremony, but it was widely discussed on the internet.
Lu Jinlang, who had stayed on the mountain for one more week, called Wen Jianing to go up the mountain. But after Wen Tinghuan knew about it, he asked Wen Jianing to make an excuse to refuse it. After all, Wen Jianing’s career was still in its infancy. He couldn’t stay in the mountains as leisurely as Lu Jinlang for a month without having to do anything.
Since Lu Jinlang finally couldn’t stand loneliness, he went back from the mountain himself.
That day, Wen Jianing confirmed the next trip with Wen Tinghuan in the company. He and Wen Lin would record Starlight TV station’s entertainment programs in two days, and it would be broadcasted at the same time as the TV series broadcasting.
When they left, Wen Lin followed Wen Jianing downstairs, since Wen Jianing told him that he would send him back.
Wen Lin knew that Wen Jianing had a new car, and it was not cheap. Of course he knew that it was impossible for the company to lend it, but Wen Lin didn’t have the heart to ask where it came from.
As soon as the two of them arrived in the underground parking lot, Wen Jianing’s cell phone rang suddenly, and it was Lu Jinlang who called and asked him where he was.
Wen Jianing replied that he was in the company.
Lu Jinlang then said, “Wait a while, I will let Yunan pick you up.”
Wen Jianing smiled, “Where are you taking me?”
Lu Jinlang said, “Come to my house.”
Wen Jianing said, “Then you don’t need to tell Yunan to pick me up, I will come by myself later.”
When he hung up, Wen Lin hesitated and asked, “Isn’t it inconvenient? I’ll just take the bus to go back by myself.”
“It’s fine,” Wen Jianing shook his head, “I’ll send you back first, it’s still early.”
After getting in the car, Wen Lin was quiet and asked, “Xinhang, are you with Lu Jinlang?”
Wen Jianing did not deny it and softly replied, “Yeah.”
Wen Lin was somewhat a naive and idealistic person. Although Wen Jianing often persuaded him that if he really wanted to insist on singing, he had to give up some things, his standpoint couldn’t be easily shaken.
What happened with Boss Chen last time influenced him a lot. For a long time, Wen Lin became a little cautious in speaking and doing things. Compared to how he originally was when he attended the Lei Xing’s banquet without saying anything, Wen Jianing had to say that Wen Lin had changed a lot. It might also be because Wen Jianing’s words in the past had some impact. But perhaps in Wen Lin’s view, he must go through these tribulations before he could truly become a top musician and make his own favourite music.
Wen Lin certainly couldn’t understand the affairs of Wen Jianing and Lu Jinlang, but he was in no position to say anything, and he didn’t even know what to say to persuade Wen Jianing.
Wen Jianing somewhat saw Wen Lin’s thoughts. As he drove the car, he said, “It’s nothing really. I like Lu Jinlang very much.”
Wen Lin turned his head in surprise, he asked, “Are you guys serious?”
Wen Jianing smiled, “I am very happy with him, at least he is handsome and a gentle man. Do not you still think I am pitiful?”
Hearing what Wen Jianing said, Wen Lin understood the implication. He said, “But it can’t last long.”
Wen Jianing said, “In the beginning, not every relationship can blossom and bear fruit. There is no need to force a lot of things, and just let nature take its course.”
Wen Lin sighed deeply when he heard the words. He too, was at loss for he also didn’t know where the future will lead to.
After sending Wen Lin home, Wen Jianing drove toward Lu Jinlang’s villa.
When he arrived, Lu Jinlang was preparing to cook steak.
Wen Jianing walked gently into the kitchen and hugged Lu Jinlang who was pouring olive oil into the pot from behind.
Lu Jinlang said, “Be careful, it’s hot.”
Wen Jianing let go of him and asked. “Are we eating steak?”
Lu Jinlang smiled and said, “We are having candlelight dinner.”
That night, the two of them were eating steak on the long table in Lu Jinlang’s dining room. After eating, Wen Jianing suddenly thought of asking Lu Jinlang to play the piano for him.
Halfway through playing the piano, Lu Jinlang made love to Wen Jianing in the piano room.
Wen Jianing’s cheeks were flushed after doing it. Lu Jinlang held him in his arms and sat on the sofa. Wen Jianing asked, “Did you miss me so much that you couldn’t wait and come down to find me?”
Lu Jinlang did not answer him directly, but said, “Li Rong looked for you once, and Yang Wenchong looked for you twice.”
Wen Jianing laughed at the words, “What do they want from me? Playing snooker?”
Lu Jinlang said, “I told them, please don’t harass you without permission.”
Wen Jianing turned his head to look at him, “You are so overbearing.”
Lu Jinlang stretched out his hand to pinch his chin and deliberately said in a haughty tone, “You are mine. No one is allowed to harass you without my consent.”
He then brought his acting skills as the Film Emperor to full effect.
Wen Jianing said, “That’s right, you are Boss Lu.” After he said that, he took the initiative to kiss Lu Jinlang’s lips.
Wen Jianing always spends time with Lu Jinlang as soon as he had free time and Wen Tinghuan had no good reason to stop him. Two days later, on the way to the TV station to record the program, Wen Tinghuan couldn’t help asking, “He hasn’t gotten tired of you yet, has he?
Wen Lin’s eyes widened and felt that Wen Tinghuan’s question was really hurtful.
Wen Jianing smiled, and said, “Maybe I will be the one who is tired of him first instead. So don’t worry.”
Because they were stuck in traffic for a while, they arrived at the TV station a little late. They had just arrived backstage when they heard the makeup artist of the Starlight TV station secretly telling them that Yuan Qian had lost her temper.
Their makeup artist was the same as when they participated in the competition, and they all knew each other quite well. It was said that Yuan Qian put on makeup half an hour ago and waited for the recording to start. Because they were late, wow she lost her temper in the lounge and refused to record.
The two of them had finished filming a 30-episode TV series with Yuan Qian, but the relationship between them was not so good, and they were not even close.
Yuan Qian was a little arrogant and had some temper for a lady. As men, Wen Jianing and Wen Lin had been accommodating to her when filming, but they didn’t expect that now that the filming was finished, they still had to accommodate her when recording a promotional program.
Wen Tinghuan said, “After all, we are late and at fault. I will go and apologize to the Missy.”
Wen Jianing grabbed her and said, “I’ll go.”
Although Wen Tinghuan was capable, she was a woman after all. Wen Jianing felt that it didn’t feel right to let a woman do this kind of thing, and Yuan Qian might not be any gentle to Wen Tinghuan.
As a result, Wen Jianing personally apologized to Yuan Qian.
In Yuan Qian’s lounge, she and her agent Xu Wen were both there. Xu Wen was known for her aggressive personality on the road. She didn’t say anything when she saw Wen Jianing come in.
Wen Jianing was sincere, he explained the reason for his late arrival and said “sorry” without being condescending.
Before Yuan Qian spoke, Xu Wen said, “Miss Yuan has another appointment in the evening.” It means she was blaming Wen Jianing for wasting their time.
Wen Jianing pretended not to understand, and said, “Then we have to start recording quickly, otherwise we will delay Miss Yuan’s appointment even further.”
Yuan Qian said, “It’s been delayed, what’s the point of saying this now?”
Wen Jianing felt that Yuan Qian was deliberately looking for trouble. It was just a trivial matter, but she had to make a mountain out of a molehill.*
Sure enough, as if she was venting her anger, Yuan Qian stood up and said, “No more recording!”
Xu Wen was surprised, she stood up and tried to persuade Yuan Qian by saying, “What’s the matter?” This and that is a different things. She understood that Yuan Qian was unhappy that Wen Jianing and Wen Lin were late, but the show had to be recorded. Otherwise, she would not only violate the contract but also offended Starlight TV station, which was not worthwhile.
Wen Jianing just felt that Yuan Qian’s emotions were inexplicable. If she didn’t want to do the recording, it had nothing to do with him anyway.
But soon, the program director and TV station staff came in to persuade her, and Xu Wen had been pulling Yuan Qian next to her but Yuan Qian didn’t budge.
Then the program started recording.
This was a popular entertainment program with four hosts and four guests. In addition to the three of them, there was also a female guest who was also an actress in ‘The Strange Fate of Hairpin and Phoenix’.
Yuan Qian was absent-minded the whole time. Although she was still smiling when she was supposed to laugh, as long as the host’s topic was not on her, her face was cold and expressionless.
The program director was holding his breath below and couldn’t exhale properly.
When playing a game later, Yuan Qian smashed a toy ball directly on Wen Lin’s face, and the audience gave a cry of surprise.
The host hurried over to ask Wen Lin if there was anything wrong.
Wen Lin shook his head.
Wen Jianing stood next to him, reached out and lifted Wen Lin’s face to the light and found a thin gash smashed into his cheekbone.
Wen Tinghuan and Wen Lin’s assistant, Zhu Zexin stood in the audience and saw this scene, and cursed under their breath.
The recording of the show dragged on until late at night.
Wen Jianing and Wen Lin dealt with the autographs of the enthusiastic fans for a while and then struggled to get out and return to the backstage area.
Walking to the dressing room, Zhu Zexin told Wen Lin to treat the wound.
Wen Lin laughed, “What can be done with this, such a small wound.”
As they walked to the dressing room, Zhu Zexin told Wen Lin to treat the wound.
Wen Lin chuckled, “What is there to deal with, it’s just a small wound.”
As soon as Wen Lin finished speaking, Wen Jianing saw a man walking in their direction across the corridor. The man was tall, his coat was open, and his shirt was not neatly buttoned. The man turned out to be Li Rong.
Li Rong was originally walking to Yuan Qian’s door lounge and stopped, but after seeing Wen Jianing, he then walked in his direction.
“Are you here to record a program?” Li Rong asked.
The corridor suddenly became quiet, Wen Tinghuan and Zhu Zexin knew who Li Rong was, and they looked at each other in surprise without saying a word. Wen Lin didn’t know who Li Rong was, and looked at him curiously.
Wen Jianing was puzzled for a moment and soon understood why Li Rong appeared here. Instead of answering Li Rong’s question, he asked, “Picking up a friend?”
Li Rong smiled upon hearing this, and said, “Taking care of something.”
Then, Li Rong said to Wen Jianing, “Come out for a drink sometime, I won’t bother you today.”
After he said that, he turned around and walked toward Yuan Qian’s lounge. After he opened the door and going in, he closed the door heavily.
Wen Jianing turned around and asked Wen Tinghuan, “Li Rong and Yuan Qian?”
Wen Tinghuan said, “That’s her official boyfriend. You don’t know?”
Wen Jianing shook his head. He really didn’t know it. Maybe it was something that happened this year. He was just a starlet who just debuted. There was no channel to understand many things, and he didn’t even want to think about it.
It was just, “How do you know Li Rong?” Wen Tinghuan found it incredible, and Li Rong was obviously very polite to Wen Jianing.
Wen Jianing laughed and said nothing.
The author has something to say:
Jinjiang is really tossing people…
*make a mountain out of a molehill means to make a fuss or over reacting.
