Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
On the third day after her audition, Leng Rongrong received a call from the crew, informing her that she had been selected and was required to attend a gathering to get to know the rest of the actors.
Leng Rongrong was quite happy when she received the call.
She thought that she would fail the audition for this show, and had already started to search for other opportunities. She had assumed that Leng Qingqing and Leng Qingle would pull a few connections to get her disqualified, but unexpectedly, things turned out to be in her favour.
It sounded incredible, and she was quite excited about her first show as an actress.
Leng Rongrong shared the good news with Tang Luo and Mo Linyuan before leaving for the meeting.
Both cars had already been delivered to the house and Leng Rongrong drove her Audi to the venue.
When she arrived at the Tomorrow Entertainment building, she ran into Leng Qingqing who had also driven in at the same time.
Coincidentally, they stopped in front of the same parking spot. Leng Rongrong flashed past quickly and pulled in. She even did some floating as she maneuvered the car in, frightening Leng Qingqing in the process.
Leng Qingqing opened the car door and rushed to Leng Rongrong. She knocked at her window. “Are you mental? Do you know that you almost hit me?”
Leng Rongrong opened the door and stepped out. Wearing a pair of sunglasses on top of a blouse and jeans, she had a pigtail pulled on the top of her head.
Leng Qingqing failed to recognize Leng Rongrong for a moment.
Leng Rongrong removed her sunglasses and threw a look at Leng Qingqing. “Did I hit you? No, right? I could have hit you, but it didn’t actually happen. If you are a bad driver, how is it my problem?”
“It is you!” Leng Qingqing got so surprised at the sight of Leng Rongrong. She never expected that Leng Rongrong would be driving an Audi car!
“You can drive? Where did you get this car from?” Leng Qingqing looked at Leng Rongrong, feeling furious.
“Of course I can. Obviously, I bought the car. You never gave me one, did you?” Leng Rongrong sneered and then walked through the entrance gate.
Following Leng Qingqing, Leng Qingqing’s mood turned bad. “You have a driver’s license? You are breaking the law if you drive without a license.
Leng Rongrong gave a pitying look to Leng Qingqing and shrugged.
Leng Qingqing caught up with her. “Where did you get the money to buy the car from? That cripple could not have possibly given you any money.”
“None of your business.” Leng Rongrong rolled her eyes.
Leng Qingqing became more and more agitated. She looked at Leng Rongrong with fury. “How dare you drive without a license?”
“If you think so, then call the police!” Leng Rongrong was not affected by her outburst.
“I will! I am not afraid of you.”
Leng Qingqing actually dialled the police in anger while Leng Rongrong entered the Tomorrow Entertainment office nonchalantly.
Leng Qingqing soon followed after her into the meeting room. There were already several people seated there.
The actors were busy chatting when Leng Qingqing and Leng Rongrong entered the room.
Leng Rongrong nodded at everyone politely and found a place to sit down.
Leng Qingqing took a seat next to Leng Rongrong and snorted. She said in a soft voice, “Let me tell you, I already called the police. They are on their way to get you.”
The room was quiet at the moment, and Leng Qingqing’s whispered voice was heard by everyone. The people in the room could not help but turn to look at Leng Qingqing in astonishment.
Leng Qingqing was flustered with all that attention and pointed at Leng Rongrong. “She was driving her car without a license!”
No one said anything. The whole scene was a bit embarrassing.
Leng Qingqing: “….”
Leng Rongrong said, “How do you know I have no license?”
Leng Qingqing snorted. “You are a wild kid from the countryside. You didn’t have enough money for food and schooling, of course you don’t have a driver’s license. Your driving skills were so dangerous, so of course you never took the driving test.”
Leng Rongrong nodded, as if agreeing with her.
Soon the policemen arrived there. They asked about the person who had made the call and the one who was the accused.
Leng Qingqing pointed at Leng Rongrong. “That’s her. She almost hit my car. Take her away, she is very dangerous.”
The police turned to look at Leng Rongrong.
Immediately, Leng Rongrong brought out her license from the purse. “Sir, I do have a driver’s license, here is it. I passed the test two years ago and have been driving since then. I am a legal citizen of the country. Someone likes calling the police to create trouble unnecessarily, simply because she doesn’t like me.”
Leng Rongrong said all of this calmly while the policemen checked her license. Then the officers turned towards Leng Qingqing.
Leng Qingqing did not believe her and grabbed hold of the license.
“This must be a fake!”
“Miss, we know what is fake and what is not. You don’t need to teach us.”
“I… she shouldn’t have been able to drive the car!”
“Why not? She has the license, and it is a real one. But you… why did you call the police to settle your private grudge, just to take revenge?”
Leng Qingqing tried to pacify the police. After a long while, the two policemen left but not without giving her a warning.
Everyone in the meeting room looked at Leng Qingqing with a weird expression.
They thought that Leng Qingqing wasn’t a nice person since she tried to settle her private grudge in this manner.
Leng Rongrong had held a calm expression on the face from beginning to the end.
Soon after, the director and the producer arrived there.
The moment she saw the director, Leng Qingqing said immediately, “Director, what is Leng Rongrong doing here?”
“Why can’t she be here?” Director looked at Leng Qingqing in confusion.
Leng Qingqing got the role because of her contact. He had not been quite satisfied with her performance. At this moment he disliked her even more for daring to interrogate him in this manner.
Leng Qingqing was taken aback and said, “I… I just feel that she doesn’t fit this show!”
“Why not? We all think that she is suitable for the show. Are you the director of this show?” Director Wang said annoyedly.
She stopped talking immediately. Anyways, she was the lead actress, and Leng Rongrong would be cast in a minor supporting role.
She would have all kinds of methods to give her a hard time later on.
This bitch knew nothing about acting. She only came to become an actress because she dreamed about the glory of being a superstar.
She was lucky to have been chosen by the director.
Since Director Wang was a weird-tempered person, it was best not to offend him.
Leng Qingqing pacified herself as she thought about this.
While she was busy fantasizing about how to crush Leng Rongrong, Director Wang suddenly said, “Let me introduce our lead actress. You may not know her yet, but you will get to know each other well enough after the filming starts. Her name is Leng…”
