Lu Jinlang, who was on the podium, concealed his excitement well. However, when he stood in front of the podium and gave his acceptance speech, he still expressed his excitement and attention in words.
He said, “I actually didn’t expect to win this award. This is of great significance to me. It can be said to be a great affirmation. There are many people who I want to thank. Without their support, I would not have a chance to stand here. Thank you to everyone who loves me and who I love.”
He said several more words afterwards and then raised the trophy in his hand.
The audience burst into applause. The Best Director’s award tonight was even more touching than the Best Actor and Actress awards.
The online media was the first to announce the news and assigned a strikingly exaggerated title: Lu Jinlang, the legend of the Gods!
The writer wrote: From now on, he is not a simple actor who can only act, at least in the film industry, he is a God!
Lu Jinlang’s award ceremony also became the climax of the awards ceremony that night. He overshadowed the limelight of the Best Actor and Actress later. At the press conference after the award ceremony, all the reporters gathered around him and asked countless questions.
Because Lu Jinlang’s time to answer reporters’ questions was too short, it caused the reporters on the spot to be unhappy, blocked the road and prevented him from leaving, almost causing a riot.
Wen Jianing went to the celebration party arranged by the organizer early and waited. He knew that Lu Jinlang would definitely be drinking tonight, and he was going to take Lu Jinlang home with Lu Yunan later.
He didn’t get the best actor this time. It was a pity, but it didn’t surprise him. In contrast, he felt even more regretful that Jian Jun failed to win the Best Newcomer Award because even though Wen Lin did perform at a super level, Jian Jun’s performance was actually not weak.
”Don’t be depressed,” he said as he swayed the champagne in his hand and patted Jian Jun on the back.
Because of his health conditions, Wen Lin went back directly after attending the press conference and did not come to the reception.
Jian Jun was not depressed. He didn’t care too much about not winning, but when he saw Lu Jinlang standing on the podium in high spirits, he suddenly felt a little speechless. He wondered if one day the person standing on it was him, would he gain more attention in exchange for the attention of others?
It was not that he had no confidence in himself, he firmly believed that the gap between him and Lu Jinlang was only in time. If he could be born more than ten years earlier… As he thought of this, he looked at the people around him.
Wen Jianing was holding champagne in his hand, but his eyes drifted to the distant crowd. He casually moved the glass to his lips, his lips were only stained with some golden wine, but he didn’t drink much. But because of this action, his lips became moist and shiny……
Jian Jun silently turned his head back, earnestly focusing on a sexy actress who was wearing a slim short dress not far away.
Lu Jinlang arrived late, and he was surrounded by everyone as soon as he appeared. He received countless congratulations. Everyone was toasting him glass after glass without stopping.
Wen Jianing suddenly remembered the night when he suddenly died after drinking too much and started to get nervous for Lu Jinlang. He poked Jian Jun on the waist and said, “Go and help Director Lu stop a few glasses of wine.”
Jian Jun turned his head to look at him, “Why should I go?”
Wen Jianing said, “It’s not appropriate for me to go, let Lu Jinlang introduce you to some people on the way.”
Jian Jun finally passed by with a glass of wine. He had to say that Jian Jun’s appearance helped Lu Jinlang to some extent. Lu Jinlang also introduced him to some of the more famous directors and filmmakers in the circle.
Wen Jianing stayed in a quiet corner. In fact, he should go out and talk more with people, but tonight he didn’t pay much attention and couldn’t see anyone except Lu Jinlang. Even now, when he thought of Lu Jinlang holding him and said I love you, he would still tremble with excitement.
When your lover was at the top of his career, the excitement and pride you feel were actually no less than him.
However, Wen Jianing did not stay quiet for long. Someone appeared next to him with a glass of wine and said, “Not gonna have a drink?”
Wen Jianing turned his head and saw Xie Ruoming who came. Since the last time he met Xie Ruoming at the bar, there had been no news from the other party. That time it was also because of Xie Ruoming that Wen Jianing had an emotional outburst and confessed his identity to Lu Jinlang.
Wen Jianing clinked glasses with him, and then drank the wine in the glass in one breath.
Xie Ruoming smiled and stood side by side with him. Perhaps he just noticed that he was looking in the direction of Lu Jinlang, so he talked to him, “Jinlang is really a very good person.”
Wen Jianing nodded.
After a while, Xie Ruoming asked him, “Do you have any plans for work lately?”
Wen Jianing was a little surprised when he heard this question. He shook his head and said, “No.”
Xie Ruoming continued, “I have a new movie. I wonder if you are interested?”
Wen Jianing’s first Film Emperor award was for filming Xie Ruoming’s play, which was also his most memorable movie for him. Now Xie Ruoming offered him an invitation again, and of course he was interested.
Before he answered, Xie Ruoming said, “I watched Jinlang’s movie, and then I also watched Director Cao’s movie that you filmed before. I think the role of the script is very suitable for you now. If you are interested, I will ask my assistant to give you the script.”
Wen Jianing quickly said, “Of course I am interested. I just don’t know that Director Xie pay attention to me?”
Xie Ruoming said, “Before, Lu Jinlang brought you out to drink with me. So I naturally pay more attention to you. I have planned this new drama for a long time, and I have carefully considered the casting. I think you should be qualified.”
Wen Jianing changed a glass of wine and toasted to Xie Ruoming, “Thank you, Director.”
Xie Ruoming smiled and said, “What are you thanking me for, you should read the script first.”
Wen Jianing nodded, and left Xie Ruoming’s contact information with Wen Tinghuan, waiting for Xie Ruoming to hand him the script.
The two of them talked for a while, because Xie Ruoming was there, they soon attracted other actors to come over to toast with wine, and Wen Jianing also mingled with the crowd for some time.
Until he later saw that Lu Jinlang drank too much.
Lu Jinlang was already a little dizzy, and he didn’t speak fluently.
Wen Jianing called Lu Yunan and asked Lu Yunan to come in directly to pick them up, and then he also found an excuse to leave first. As he walked to the parking lot, Wen Jianing saw Lu Yunan helping Lu Jinlang got in the car, and quickly went over to help.
Today Lu Yunan was driving Lu Jinlang’s nanny car.
As soon as he got in the car, Lu Jinlang suddenly reached out and grabbed Wen Jianing’s lapel, pulling him closer to kiss his lips hard. He still remembered that when the two of them seldom met when they were together, Lu Jinlang often did these things with Wen Jianing in this car, but after they lived together, they rarely did, because they had a lot of time to take their time to slowly satisfy each other’s passions.
However, Lu Jinlang’s movements were a bit fierce now. While he kissed Wen Jianing, one hand reached through the hem of his shirt and squeezed his waist, so hard that it caused Wen Jianning some pain.
As the car drove slowly out of the parking lot, Wen Jianing suddenly seemed to see a somewhat familiar person across the street. It was Zhu Zexin, standing under the streetlamp and looking in the direction of the banquet hall.
Wen Jianing froze, but then he was turned back to his attention by Lu Jinlang’s actions. Moist and alcoholic kisses lingered around his ears and neck, and the surrounding temperature was rising.
Wen Jianing closed the partitions in the front row. He knew that there was a good sound insulation effect, and Lu Yunan would not care about them, but he still reached out and patted Lu Jinlang on the back and said, “Let’s go back first.”
Lu Jinlang did not stop. He hugged Wen Jianing, and kept kissing and touching him.
Wen Jianing hugged him back, and did not refuse. He gently stroked his back with one hand, trying to calm him down.
Lu Jinlang said in his ear, “I’m a little excited.”
Wen Jianing smiled and said, “I know.”
After he said this, Lu Jinlang kissed the side of his neck twice, then buried his head on his shoulder, and gradually snoozed off.
Wen Jianing heard that his breathing became slow and even. He knew that Lu Jinlang was asleep, so he helped him to lie down on the seat with his head resting on his lap.
When they went back that night, Lu Jinlang was really drunk. He would usually remain a little sober even when he was drunk, but today he was perhaps too emotional and could not control himself at all.
Lu Yunan helped Wen Jianing put Lu Jinlang on the bed before leaving.
Wen Jianing helped him take off his shoes, clothes and pants, pulled the quilt to cover him, kissed his eyebrows, and said, “You are great, dear. Good night.”
Lu Jinlang slept until noon the next day.
Since Lu Jinlang got up and turned on his phone, his phone hadn’t stopped ringing. This was mostly a blessing from friends and relatives, and some well-connected reporters came over and wanted to do an interview.
In fact, there were countless other people who contacted Lu Jinlang’s agent to bring him in for filming, advertising, endorsements, and shows.
Lu Jinlang mostly refused. He read the entertainment news on the internet while drinking coffee, and then said to Wen Jianing, “Let’s go home for dinner in the afternoon.”
Wen Jianing said, “Okay.” At this time, Lu Jinlang should have gone back to his family to share his joy and achievements with them.
After a while, Wen Jianing stood behind Lu Jinlang and read the news on the web page he was reading. He leaned on his back and put his arms on his shoulders, and said, “What does God Lu think?”
Lu Jinlang just smiled, reached out his hand and opened a topic that didn’t have too many people’s attention next to him. It was a topic to commemorate Wen Jianing.
It was held every year, just on the second day of the Academy Awards, because the date was too coincidental, it was easy for people to remember.
But gradually, fewer and fewer people were still paying attention to this topic, and fewer people still remembered Wen Jianing.
Wen Jianing looked at it silently, and said after a while, “Go and light a candle for me.”
Lu Jinlang smiled at his ridiculous remark, and asked, “Do you want to meet your mother in the past?”
Wen Jianing was slightly startled.
Lu Jinlang continued, “I think she will be happy to know that you still exist in this world.”
Wen Jianing sighed, “I don’t know, I always look forward to it and fear to face it.”
”There’s nothing to be afraid of,” Lu Jinlang held his hand, “I will accompany you.”
That night, the Lu family cooked a large table of dishes to celebrate Lu Jinlang winning the Best Director Award.
For Lu Jinfeng, compared to acting, he felt that directing was a more legitimate and respected profession. No matter how many Film Emperor awards Lu Jinlang had won in the past, in his eyes, it was not as valuable as the director’s award.
Lu Jinxin brought two bottles of wine back, saying it was from his treasure collection.
Lu Jinfeng sat at the table and said, “Everyone is happy today. Let’s all have a drink.”
Wen Jianing smiled and said, “You guys have a drink. I’m going to drive later. Yunan has asked for some leave to go home in the past two days.”
The old lady said quickly, “It’s okay. If you drink too much, you can sleep well here. The third child has a room upstairs.”
Wen Jianing looked at Lu Jinlang, and Lu Jinlang poured a glass of wine for him himself, and said, “It’s okay, let’s have a drink.”
Wen Jianing finally picked up the wine glass.
It was very lively at the Lu family that night. It was rare that the family gathered together, and Lu Jinfeng was in a good mood. Everyone was talking and laughing. They all sat at the table and chatted without leaving the table after eating.
After they ate, Lu Jinlang took Wen Jianing to his room on the second floor to rest.
This was not the first time Wen Jianing had entered his room. However, it was his first time to spend the night here.
The Lu family had lived in this house for a long time. It had been nearly 20 years since Lu Jinlang stayed in this room. He moved out after graduating from university and started working, but this room had been maintained for him.
Wen Jianing could even pull out one or two of Lu Jinlang’s middle school textbooks in the bookcase.
Wen Jianing couldn’t help laughing when he saw the neatly written words “Lu Jinlang” on the title page of the textbook.
”What are you laughing at?” Lu Jinlang said to him.
Wen Jianing shook his head and put the book back in the cabinet.
Lu Jinlang hugged him from behind and said, “Let’s sleep.”
Wen Jianing raised his hand to touch his face, and replied, “Okay.”
About two days later, Wen Jianing came back from outside and saw a script lying on the sofa. He picked it up and looked at the movie that Xie Ruoming had mentioned to him before. The movie was called “The Culprit”.
Wen Jianing had already discussed this matter with Wen Tinghuan. Wen Tinghuan said that she would go to Zheng Xin to discuss. They didn’t think there was a big problem with Xie Ruoming’s invitation. After all, Xie Ruoming was a big-name director in the circle, and cooperation with him was an opportunity.
Xie Ruoming’s assistant contacted Wen Tinghuan and said that they would send the script.
But he didn’t know when Wen Tinghuan will send the script. They obviously didn’t say that they would send the script over today.
Wen Jianing took out his mobile phone and was about to call Wen Tinghuan. Lu Jinlang opened the bathroom door and walked out to see him, and said, “That’s my script.”
”Your script?” Wen Jianing looked surprised.
Lu Jinlang smiled, “Are you so surprised? After Xie Ruoming mentioned his new movie to me, I felt very interested.”
Wen Jianing was still a little dazed, “Why didn’t he tell me?”
Lu Jinlang looked at him, still smiling, “He told me, so how about it? Are you interested in acting with me again?”
Wen Jianing smiled when he heard the words, he walked up to Lu Jinlang and stretched out a hand to him. After Lu Jinlang held his hand, he said, “It is a great honour, my male god.”
The author has something to say:
I’m not saying it’s the end, I’ll take my time to wrap it up.
This kinda acts as a filler but Jin Gang Quan’s movie ideas are all good. So it’s definitely worth to read
