Chapter 133: Are You Some Kind Of Guardian Beast?
Mufeng didn’t stop her. He just looked at Jiang Xun’s back. She seemed to be a little flustered.
However, his mood actually jumped up because of this. If she was flustered by his words, then didn’t it mean that he did have a place in her heart? Otherwise, she’d treat him the same way she treated the male guests—unwavering in the face of their attempts to impress her.
Mufeng could not help but smile as he quickly followed her inside.
When the audience saw the both of them reenter the villa, they couldn’t tell what had happened because Jiang Xun’s expression was emotionless. However, Qin Mufeng seemed to be in a good, so it didn’t seem like Jiang Xun had taught him a lesson.
Then why did she call him out in a threatening manner just now?
Though, it made sense if they gave it some thought—it was likely that Jiang Xun did not have the guts to really lose her temper with Qin Mufeng. However, they didn’t expect Jiang Xun to be so close to him.
From today onwards, the guests could start dating and get to know each other better.
However, Mufeng made sure to follow Jiang Xun closely, not giving anyone the chance to get close to her.
When he saw Jiayi walking over, wanting to talk to Jiang Xun, he narrowed his eyes slightly. Just as he was about to talk to Jiang Xun, her phone rang.
It was a call from Yicheng.
Jiang Xun went to an empty spot to answer the call.
“Jiang Jiang, good news!” Yicheng said excitedly. “The casting director of ‘Storm in The Heavenly Capital,’ which is directed by Deng Xu, contacted me just now. Director Deng saw your performance in “Accelerated Flight” and thought that your skills were pretty good, so he wants you to try out for the role of the character who knows martial arts. Are you interested?”
“Ah, he also said that it’s a supporting role, but I think the parts involved are okay. I’m not too sure about the specifics,” Yicheng said, “but it just so happens that Director Deng is in the capital right now. He’s flying to Shanghai tomorrow. I thought that if you were interested, we could take advantage of his presence today to meet him face-to-face. I believe that we can also better discuss the specifics then. What do you think?”
“This is a good opportunity, so of course I’d want to go,” Jiang Xun said. “I don’t think you’d contact me in such a hurry otherwise. I believe in your judgment.”
Jiang Xun’s words touched Yicheng’s heart. His eyes narrowed with a smile. “Okay, then I’ll hurry up and contact him.”
Yicheng hung up the phone and quickly contacted director Deng Xu’s assistant to see if they could meet today. As the general manager of Shanpin Media, this was a convenience awarded to him, especially since he wasn’t any ordinary manager.
Deng Xu would really have to give him some face when Yicheng contacted him as the general manager of Shanpin Media.
Therefore, the meeting time was set smoothly.
After hanging up the phone, Yicheng could not help but sigh that Mufeng was really taking one step at a time. The reason why Mufeng had suggested that he be Jiang Xun’s agent at the beginning was probably because of his status as the general manager of Shanpin Media. If he was the one to handle the matter, regardless of whether it was successful or not, the other party would have to give him some face. At the very least, they would give him a chance to talk.
If it were any other manager, it would be very difficult for them to just fight for a chance to talk in person. Mufeng had probably made plans for Jiang Xun beforehand, knowing that it was impossible for Jiang Xun to only be an internet celebrity on Shanpin. There was no way she would forever be limited to livestreaming.
The further Jiang Xun went, the wider the world she faced, and the greater the difficulty she faced. The higher the status of the person she faced, the more valuable Yicheng’s role as her manager would be.
“Jiang Jiang, I’ve already contacted them. We can meet director Deng at 12 noon at the Qin Yang Hotel’s Ru Tang restaurant,” he said, having called her.
“Okay.” Jiang Xun hung up the phone and called Shuli, asking for some time away.
Shuli definitely couldn’t stop her from going to discuss work-related matters, and so he couldn’t help but sigh. Jiang Xun’s development was going too smoothly.
She had just registered for Shanpin only a few months ago, and within that time, she had become the biggest streamer on the site Shanpin.
Now, the number of fans she had on Shanpin had already reached 30 million.
And not long after she became a big internet celebrity on Shanpin, she immediately got into two variety shows that were quite popular. It was as if she had half a foot in the entertainment industry.
Under normal circumstances, she would still need to work hard to get a few more variety shows to brush up on her image, but even so, it did not mean that she would be filming anything at all. It was rare for someone like Jiang Xun, who had only been on a couple of variety shows, to be asked to film something.
She had to take things one step at a time. She was already at the peak of her career before even making an official mainstream debut, so she didn’t seem to have the capital to support her.
Shuli knew very well that although Jiang Xun and Qin Mufeng seemed to be on good terms, both he himself and Hou Guanglin had asked for her to join their respective shows on their own initiative. If one were to talk about Jiang Xun’s biggest advantage, it might be that the general manager of Shanpin Media was acting as her personal manager.
However, the resources that Shanpin media gave her were not out of line;.no one could find a single mistake in the treatment she’d been given thus far, and no one could say that she was being unfairly favored. People who were able to make it into the mainstream were usually arrogant and snobbish once they debuted, but not Jiang Xun.
“You’re discussing matters with the director, so we definitely can’t film it. However, on your way to and from the location, the production team will still have to film you,” Shuli said.
Otherwise, what else could they film? Not like they had anything else.
Moreover, Shuli had a feeling that Jiang Xun might leave after they finished filming this episode, so he would seize this opportunity to film her just a bit more.
Jiang Xun agreed to his terms.
In the meantime, Yicheng had told Mufeng about this, so when Jiang Xun returned, Mufeng pretended to know nothing and asked, “What do you want to eat for lunch?”
“Brother Wang called me just now. Director Deng Xu is in the capital. He has a small role in his new drama that suits me well, so Brother Wang contacted him. We’re supposed to go for lunch with the director to discuss that role,” Jiang Xun whispered to him.
“I’ll go with you,” Mufeng said.
Jiang Xun had no reason to refuse, but she just felt that it was a little strange for him to follow her around when she was going to discuss work-related matters.
“There are too many people in this line of work. Although I’m not sure if Deng Xu is the right person, I’ll go with you just in case.” Mufeng was afraid that Jiang Xun would not agree, so he made a special promise. “I’ll just sit there and not interfere with your discussion.”
“What are you, some kind of guardian beast?” Jiang Xun blurted out, her mouth moving faster than her brain.
“…” Mufeng was slightly stunned at her words, but a helplessly fond smile crossed his face. His eyebrows raised, he reached up with one hand and gently pinched her cheek. “Cheeky, aren’t you?”
Jiang Xun was caught off guard by his sudden actions. Startled, she could only stare at him in a daze.
Mufeng could feel that the skin under his fingers was so hot that it was practically on fire. Jiang Xun’s flushed face had an indescribably seductive charm.
Mufeng’s lips and mouth suddenly felt dry. He tried to swallow, but realized that his throat had also gone bone dry. His fingertips could not help but rub lightly on Jiang Xun’s delicate cheeks, and his heart felt as if it had been delivered a mild shock.
