Chapter 1819: Give You a Thumbs Up
The director felt that Han Zhuoling had seen through the little thoughts she had.
She was afraid that if she asked whether they could air the scenes directly, Han Zhuoling might not be happy.
It might seem as if their production team wanted to make use of Han Zhuoling and Shi Xiaoya’s relationship to create hot topics and boost the viewership ratings.
That was why she asked it in a different way, to let Han Zhuoling know that their production team definitely, definitely did not have the intention to make use of Han Zhuoling and Shi Xiaoya.
But very obviously, Han Zhuoling guessed all her small concerns.
But luckily, although the director harbored those thoughts, they were not with bad intentions. For the production team and Han Zhuoling’s sake, she struck a good balance between both considerations.
Han Zhuoling then said, “There’s no need to deliberately edit them out. Do what is necessary, just like how you usually edit the scenes. Just make sure you can achieve the intended effect after airing.”
The director was utterly surprised. She almost wanted to tell Lu Dongliu right now that the third episode of the show would certainly burst through the roof in viewership ratings!
“Let’s go quickly,” Shi Xiaoya reminded him. “Or else once the others come, they will target you.”
Both of them first found a more secluded area to stop first.
“Actually, they might not come and snatch away my pocket watch the moment they enter,” Han Zhuoling explained. “We will surely find a place to hide first, so they won’t be able to find us at the first instance.”
“In this way, what they can do is to be a step ahead of us and try to find the item that can protect the pocket watch first,” Han Zhuoling said. “When the protection item is gone, they can then easily snatch the pocket watch.”
“But at least the Director did not tell them what the item I have is. They don’t know that it’s a pocket watch,” Han Zhuoling said.
At this moment, the sponsored phones provided for the production team for use by the guests received a mass text message from the production team.
It was a clue for finding the item.
“We need to go to the city to find Lu Ban’s successor?” Shi Xiaoya saw the clue in the message. “That means we need to go and find something related to woodwork?”
Then won’t everyone gather at the same place in the end?
That would be too dangerous.
“Let’s go, we’ll go and walk along the streets first,” Han Zhuoling said.
“You’re not afraid of meeting them and fighting with them over the item?” Shi Xiaoya asked.
Han Zhuoling slowly took out a small porcelain bottle that looked really ancient from his waist bag. There was a small pill-like thing inside of it.
“What’s this?” Shi Xiaoya asked in surprise.
“I asked it from the hotel. Didn’t you notice? Everything in the hotel is designed to mimic ancient times. From the room’s design to the cutlery, all of it is like that. This small porcelain bottle is used by the hotel to pacify kids. In the shows that kids like to watch nowadays, the characters would always take out some pill from such small porcelain bottles to swallow,” Han Zhuoling said while holding back his laughter.
“Hence, the hotel thought of this method. The pill inside is a small hawthorn sweet,” Han Zhuoling said. “So I asked for one bottle from the hotel, then asked them to leave only one hawthorn pill inside of it. It wouldn’t be convincing if there were too many left.”
Shi Xiaoya: “…”
Sure enough, her worries were excessive.
“When did you ask for it?” Shi Xiaoya asked.
“When we were eating breakfast, I saw their service crew preparing these, so I asked about it,” Han Zhuoling said.
How did this man’s brain develop?
He’d actually thought of these things a long time ago.
It was no longer a matter of looking three steps ahead of time.
He probably looked one kilometer ahead of time with every step he took.
“But at that time, you did not know that the show was going to announce that you have the prize item,” Shi Xiaoya said while feeling stunned.
The director silently gave Shi Xiaoya a thumbs up.
