Zhou Zhou and Little Ye watched as she made phone calls and sent messages one after another. They were so excited that they wanted to soar to the sky. They were also overjoyed.
Ling Sheng held her phone and huddled in a corner with a smile on her face. “Yes, Director Chen Mo. He’s the only director in China who has won an Oscar.”
“How did you know? Do you like watching his movies?”
“I do. Besides, I’m his new investor.”
“No way. Third Master, are you close to him? Didn’t you say that his movies never attracted investors? Besides, his family is rich.”
“I invested in all his movies as the sole proprietor.”
Ling Sheng’s jaw dropped in shock. “Give me a break. My mind is a little muddled now. That means you’re the big financier behind Chen Mo.”
Oh my god!
This was earth-shaking news!
“You can put it that way. I’m on good terms with him. We’re meeting tonight. Do you want to come over? I’ll pick you up from your company later.”
Ling Sheng felt that her understanding of things was being greatly challenged. She shook her head. “I have to go back to fetch Xiaoqi. Uncle and the others are returning to the old residence today.”
“Then…” Jun Shiyan paused before saying, “Can I come to your house?”
Ling Sheng shook her head vigorously and rejected him outright. “No!”
If her father found out, he would skin her alive!
Just thinking about it was scary!
“Then I’ll fetch you and Xiaoqi and have a meal with Director Chen?” Jun Shiyan took a step back.
“I have to go home to cook. You don’t know this, but my uncle is very picky. He wants to come home today. If I’m not around, he will lose his temper again.”
“Can you move out?”
“I might move out after some time.” Ling Sheng thought that was possible, but the house her grandpa had bought was still being renovated. She would probably move in after filming Director Chen’s new drama.
She should have been overjoyed to the point of clapping, but when she thought about the fact that there would be no one to teach her acting skills after she moved, she felt a little disappointed.
Ling Sheng went to the company, but Mei Xuelin was even more agitated than her. She claimed that she must have been possessed by a lucky carp to have such a great thing befall her.
It was not easy to get a role in Chen Mo’s new drama. Even though she would be playing the female lead in her student days, it would be crucial for her future development.
Besides, she would be filming with Best Actor Sheng. This was a rare opportunity for a new actor.
“Sister Mei, why didn’t Director Chen send an invitation to our company’s artists?” Ling Sheng found it strange.
“How would I know? Go back and ask Huo Ci if he offended Director Chen.” Mei Xuelin did not understand either.
“Did Senior Huo receive an invitation?” Ling Sheng did not dare ask her father, as she could foresee that she would get scolded badly.
“He’s my boss, not my artist. I don’t manage him. He manages his own business.” Mei Xuelin rolled her eyes and sighed.
Ling Sheng was speechless.
