Chapter 5: You’re Really a Good Actress
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Lu Gan quickly picked up the phone. After saying “Mmhmm” twice, he calmly looked at Song Ci and said, “You can go back first. I have something to do, so I have to leave for a while.”
Song Ci almost cheered, but her face showed a disappointed expression.
“Can’t you do it later?”
‘So, you really want to f*ck me?
‘As an actress, your professionalism is amazing!’
“Maybe another day.”
“When? Tomorrow? Or the day after?”
Song Ci continued to maintain her character.
“We’ll meet again soon, right?”
Lu Gan was almost speechless.
“You said you’re an actress, right?”
Song Ci nodded. This was a coincidence. The original Song Ci was indeed an actress.
“You’re seriously a good actress.”
Song Ci replied humbly, “I haven’t won an award yet, so I’m just considered average.”
Lu Gan nodded very seriously.
With her acting skills and professionalism, it was only a matter of time before she won an award.
“Anyway, you can leave now.”
Song Ci was still standing at the same spot.
Lu Gan really did not want to waste any more time with her, so he ordered her to leave.
“I’ll see you tomorrow,” said Song Ci with a smile.
Lu Gan’s eyelids twitched.
“We’ll talk about this next time.”
Song Ci added, “I’m still waiting to get married to you.”
Then, she pretended to look at Lu Gan shyly before closing the door reluctantly.
Finally, Song Ci had left. Lu Gan could not help but lean back on his chair. He calmed himself down and began to think of the events that had transpired.
Meanwhile, Song Ci also heaved a sigh of relief. She quickly walked out of the Lu family’s home. It was a close call! She had already used up her lifetime of luck.
Song Ci walked so quickly that she did not notice a four or five-year-old little boy behind her.
The boy was none other than Lu Suo. His skin was as white as snow. He was so beautiful that it was hard to distinguish if he was a male or female. At the moment, he was an extremely cute child.
Lu Suo leaned against the railing and looked at the door. His beautiful phoenix-like eyes blinked gently and he tilted his head in confusion. So, this red-dressed woman liked his uncle?
Although her words were unpleasant at the beginning, her later actions seemed to really prove otherwise.
Would his uncle actually marry her?
As Lu Suo was thinking, he heard a sound coming from the study not far away. It was the sound of Lu Gan’s wheelchair. His uncle was coming out, so he quickly ran toward his room.
“I’m going out for a while.”
Lu Suo knocked on the door and opened it, but he did not enter. He raised his head, revealing his good-looking and fair face. Then, he nodded obediently.
“Okay, dad. Come back soon.”
Lu Gan turned the wheelchair around and left.
Lu Suo looked at his back. After that, he put away his diary. He leaned on the table and slowly closed his eyes. No one knew what he was thinking.
Song Ci’s phone rang not long after she left Lu Gan’s house.
She saw the words ‘manager’ on display.
Song Ci picked up the call. Before she could say anything, she heard a roar from the other side of the phone!
“Finally, you’ve picked up! So, you really don’t want to be in this movie, huh? You didn’t even attend the audition! The third female lead isn’t good enough for you, right? Have you seen your own acting skills? It’s already hard enough to find such a role for you. Song Ci, don’t you know what’s good for you? You haven’t even paid the money you owe the company! If you refuse to work, then you should go and sell your body!”
Song Ci kept the phone away from her ear. This manager was really ruthless. However, the original Song Ci brought this upon herself. She slept with various powerful people in the industry to pave her acting career path! The original Song Ci was indeed a tragic cannon fodder.
Thinking of this, Song Ci immediately replied, “I’ll be there right away.”
No matter what, she had to accept the role. How else would she earn money? Selling her body was not an option.
When David (TN: The manager’s name.) heard this, his tone became calmer. However, he still threatened, “This is your last chance. Don’t blame me if things don’t work out. The company can’t keep trash.”
Song Ci held her phone firmly as she replied, “I know. I’ll definitely act well this time.”
David did not believe her. Song Ci had always been full of confidence before every audition. Yet, the end results were always disappointing. People only hired her because she was good-looking. Some of the cast and crew could barely tolerate a piece of talentless trash like her!
Since Song Ci was good-looking and had a nice figure, she could always just sleep with the higher-ups. It was the only way she could earn a lot of money. Otherwise, David would have given up on her long ago!
Song Ci put down the phone and sighed. She thought about the plot of the novel. The original Song Ci had really left her with a lot of troubles. Who would have thought that the life of a cannon fodder could be so difficult?
