Chapter 743 - Sorry
Shen Li sat cross-legged on the bed.
[ Did you have fun? ]
In the banquet hall in the Capital.
In the banquet hall on the first floor, the film crew of “Hibiscus” was having a celebratory feast.
Lin Fengmian had just sung on stage, and the venue was bustling with activity.
Many people came forward to ask to take a photo with him, and he agreed.
It had taken him a while to return to his seat. He then took out his phone and only then did he see the message that Shen Li had just sent.
The young man’s beautiful eyes curved, as the corners of his crimson lips pursed into a smile. The mole at the corner of his eye made him look even more seductive.
Ge was sitting beside him. When he saw that he was smiling, he asked with a smile, “Fengmian, what are you looking at that’s making you so happy?”
Lin Fengmian replied to the message before resting the phone screen and looking up.
Mo Yun, who had happened to walk over, could not help but tease him.
“Who else can make Fengmian care so much that he’s willing to do something out of the ordinary, other than his sister?”
Mo Yun was the female lead of “Hibiscus” and a fan of Lin Fengmian.
Ge was stunned for a while before he finally remembered this person.
Previously, the incident between Lin Fengmian and his sister had spread like wildfire on the Internet. Later on, his sister had been even given the title “National Sister”. Thus, Lin Fengmian’s fans had called her “Sister” from then on.
He had followed the news of her for a while, but not for gossip, but for Ning Li’s face.
She was very beautiful, with a story to tell.
At the mention of her, Lin Fengmian thought of the words that Shen Li had just sent him. He smiled, showing a rare sense of docility.
“Sister has changed her name. It’s Shen Li now.”
He did not deny Mo Yun’s words.
Ge was a little surprised.
Why had she suddenly changed her name out of the blue? What’s more, it was her surname that had been changed.
Lin Fengmian nodded slightly.
“Sister’s biological father’s surname is Shen.”
Mo Yun could not help but say, “That’s Shen Zhijin! The vice president of Xijing University!”
As a big fan, she often paid attention to what was going on in Shen Li’s life.
Shen Li was Shen Zhijin’s biological daughter. The fans from Xijing University had long since spread the news, so Mo Yun knew it very well too.
“So that’s the situation!”
He looked at Lin Fengmian and said enthusiastically, “Fengmian, I wonder if your sister would be interested in acting?”
Lin Fengmian was stunned.
“I haven’t asked her that before… What Director Ge means…”
Ge rubbed his hands together, unable to hide his excitement.
“It’s like this. I think your sister would be very suitable for the female lead role in my next movie. Why don’t you ask her to see if she wants to give it a try?”
Ge’s words surprised Lin Fengmian.
He paused and said, “Well… she’s quite busy with her studies. I don’t think she has the time.”
Ge was not discouraged and continued, “All this can be negotiable. There’s no need to worry about the pay. She–”
Mo Yun could not help but laugh.
“Director Ge, she’s a top designer that G&S collaborates with. She doesn’t lack money. Why would she want to act in a movie?”
Ge was quite enchanted by Shen Li’s face. Even just a glance from her seemed to contain an endless story.
It was a very unique movie face.
“It’s a pity that her face isn’t on the big screen though. Besides, who would complain about having too much money?”
Just then, the assistant director sitting on the other side finally could not help but give a pat on Ge’s shoulder.
“Don’t think about it. How could the young miss of the Gu family in Hong Kong City lack that little bit of money?”
Ge was instantly shocked.
The assistant director poured another glass of wine.
This matter had already spread within the Capital’s social circles, but Ge and the others had not paid attention to it, which was why they did not understand.
“Let’s toast the investor! Although that person is not present today, we still have to show off this atmosphere, right?”
The investor was, of course, worthy of being the head of Shengguang Media.
However, this person seemed to be very busy and had never made an appearance before.
Without this person, it would have been difficult for the “Hibiscus” project to have even gotten off the ground. How could it have achieved the results it had today without this person?
The circle of people raised their wine glasses as they took a photo.
Half a minute later, Lin Fengmian sent another photo to Shen Li.
Shen Li had not attended this celebration party, yet it was not difficult to see the liveliness of the scene from the photo.
She chatted with Lin Fengmian for a while longer before putting away her phone.
The dinner appointment between Lu Huaiyu and Gu Tinglan had been arranged to be held at a private restaurant.
By the time Lu Huaiyu stepped into the private room, Gu Tinglan had already waited for a long time.
When he saw Lu Huaiyu enter, he raised his eyes.
“Second Master Lu is really getting more and more arrogant.”
Lu Huaiyu took a seat opposite him. When he heard this, he raised his eyebrows slightly and took the rare initiative of helping to pour the tea.
“Little Uncle’s patience seems to be getting worse and worse.”
Gu Tinglan’s breath was stuck in his chest.
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
“It’s rush hour, and Hong Kong City is a little congested.”
Gu Tinglan raised his teacup.
“You don’t drive.”
After saying that, he paused.
Then, he tensed his fingers slightly and put down the teacup with a much more restrained expression on his face.
Lu Huaiyu did not seem to mind. He tilted his head slightly and thought for a while before smiling.
“Yeah, it’s been a long time since I’ve driven.”
Gu Tinglan stared at him, trying to catch the emotions on his face.
However, Lu Huaiyu was someone who kept his thoughts to himself. Unless he chose otherwise, no one would be able to know what he was thinking.
Gu Tinglan’s phone rang.
When he glanced at it, he noticed that it was Gu Siyang.
Normally, he would not pick up. However, this call had come at the right time.
Gu Tinglan picked up the phone.
“What’s the matter?”
Gu Siyang’s voice was very excited.
“Uncle! The car that I booked for Ah Li has arrived! I’ll invite her over tomorrow!”
In a lazy tone, Gu Tinglan said, “Then why did you call me?”
Gu Siyang chuckled.
“I’m just too happy right now. I just had to find someone to talk to! But I was afraid to disturb Ah Li’s rest–”
Gu Tinglan hung up the phone and met Lu Huaiyu’s gaze. He said concisely,”Gu Siyang will be taking Ah Li to look at a car tomorrow.”
Lu Huaiyu’s thin lips twitched slightly.
“It just so happens that I’m free tomorrow.”
Gu Tinglan bent his fingers and rapped them on the table.
“Lu Huaiyu, it’s a sports car.”
He reminded him calmly.
“You can look at it, but don’t get into the car.”
