After a few moments of pondering, Xu Xiyan gave up on the idea of introducing Ying Bao to her father.
She was afraid that people from the Huo family would take Ying Bao away from her and that this would be traumatic for Ying Bao.
And she was not sure what Huo Yunshen would think and whether he was fond of kids or not.
Huo Yunshen had his own problems to worried about, so she didn't want to add more fuel to the fire.
Just as Xu Xiyan was thinking about Huo Yunshen, he sent her a text with a sun smiling emoji.
It's already so late… is he still up?
"Haven't slept yet?" Xu Xiyan replied.
"No. Did you see the news?"
"Yes, I did. Sorry for causing you all these troubles."
Xu Xiyan really felt bad for what she did. Huo Yunshen used to have zero scandals during his career. Then she came and had sex with him five years ago. Now, there were rumors spreading about him because of her.
"It's nothing, really," he typed. "I'm more worried that it will affect you."
"I'm fine. Just think of this as me climbing up the ladder through the movie-king," Xu Xiyan typed jokingly.
"Haha. Stop with the movie-king thing. It was a long time ago."
Xu Xiyan noticed he was in a depressed mood again, and decided she had to scold him. "Please don't say something that depressing. Even if it was 50 years later, you and your movies will always be in the spotlight. You're one of the classics in my book."
"Thank you. You sound like my sister with that kind of scolding. Haha." Huo Yunshen felt a surge of warmth in his heart.
"Which one? You have three sisters, right?"
"Yup, I'm the youngest of the four…"
The night continued with Huo Yunshen and Xu Xiyan messaging back and forth. Huo Yunshen talked about all the weird things that his sisters had done.
They even talked about music and literature.
They were like two long lost friends catching up, sharing all of their stories.
Wednesday, the skies were clear. After her breakfast, Xu Xiyan changed into a set of tidier clothes and went to the shooting scene for "Red Sleeved Beauty."
The crew for the movie was shooting in the eastern suburb of Peijing, a place with which Xu Xiyan was familiar.
The opening ceremony for the movie had been two days ago, which was Monday.
The hero of the movie was played by the new Zstan movie-king, Lin Huaijin, while the heroine was being played by Julia, and the second female lead was taken by Xu Xinrou. They were all superstars.
Just from the line-up, one could guess that the show would pul in a hefty revenue.
Xu Xiyan rushed to the scene and found Stage-Manager Xiao Long through the contact that Director Huang had left for her.
Since Xu Xiyan didn't have a manager, and wasn't signed to any company, she was required to sign an Acting Agreement between her and the crew.
After she'd signed the agreement, she got her script and waited for the make-up artist. She was there early, so she had to wait for the artist to arrive in the make-up studio.
Using the spare time she had, she studied the script and found a major issue.
The character she was supposed to play was Yao Yue. She was the servant for the second female lead. At first, she'd thought that Xu Xinrou would land the heroine spot, never expecting that she would become the second female lead.
This meant that Xu Xiyan had to work by Xu Xinrou's side as her servant.
Even more importantly, the character Xu Xinrou would be playing was arrogant and temperamental, and would do anything to get what she wanted. She would even hit the people that were serving her.
Xu XIyan clicked her tongue.
Why do I have the feeling that I'm already standing in front of hell's gate… the shoot has yet to begin?
What could she do if Xu Xinrou tried to hurt her during the course of their acting?
