Inside the bathroom, Nina Hua was holding the toilet and vomiting into the dark.
Jenny hurriedly ran in, and when he saw her in distress, he was almost certain of what he was thinking, and was distressed.
She even went out and brought her a glass of water and a tissue.
Patting her on the back as he cared, “How are you?All right?”
Nina Hua waved his hand and shook his head.
It took a long while to find his voice, “I’m okay, I’m fine.”
Jenny Jing handed her the water, she took a sip, and after rinsing her mouth and wiping her mouth with a tissue, she said, “Sorry to spoil your fun.”
Jenny was busy shaking his head, “What are you talking about?You’re like this, what’s the point of mentioning spoilers?”
After a pause and a bit of anger, he asked, “Why didn’t you tell me even though something so important happened?What’s going on here?”
Nina Hua looked at her, knowing that she had already guessed and bit her lip.
It took a little while before he said, “As you can see, I’m pregnant.”
Jenny nodded, “You’re reacting so strongly now, I think anyone with a heart can see that.”
Nina Hua barely smiled, a smile that was endlessly pale.
“That’s why I had a falling out with my dad.”
Jenny frowned tightly, “What’s going on here?Why did you fall out with your father?And who is the father of the child?Why didn’t he come forward?”
“The father of the child…”
Nina Hua muttered a sentence, followed by a sad smile.
“Never mind, let’s not talk about it, Jenny, can you keep it a secret for me?”
Jenny frowned, obviously very upset with her for avoiding the question of the child’s father.
However, she also knew that Nina Hua was an adult, and since she had decided not to tell anyone, she could only respect her choice as a friend.
She sighed and nodded, “Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone about this.But what are you going to do with the kid?After all, you can’t hide your stomach, not to mention you have to film every day!”
Nina Hua was a bit startled, and his eyes were dazed.
After a long while, she shook her head, “I don’t know, but the film will be finished in two months, so I’ll try my best to keep it hidden from people, and as for the future… we’ll see!”
Jenny’s frown deepened at the sight of it.
But in the end didn’t say anything and helped her out with him.
They were both back in their positions again, and their moods had changed dramatically.
Jenny Jing sighed, “To be honest, I was actually asked by Lu Yanzhi to try to persuade you to act in that play he mentioned to you before, but now it seems obvious that it’s impossible.”
Nina Hua nodded, “He talked to me about this movie, it’s actually a good script, and I’m tempted, but obviously, I’m not in the right state.”
Jenny nodded, his fingers unconsciously playing with a spoon on the table, contemplating.
Both of them were clearly not in the mood to eat now, and it took a moment before Jenny asked her, “So where do you live now?Yuki is just a seventeen or eighteen year old child who doesn’t understand a lot of things, can she take care of you by herself?”
Nina Hua turned her head to look out the window, it was already the beginning of Chinese lights, and outside the window was a large road near the street, the road was full of traffic, a scene of prosperity, but she felt desolate and barren in her heart.
Now, it seemed that the one sister in front of her was the only one who could make her feel some warmth.
She shook her head, “I don’t know, my dad froze all the bank cards in my name to force me to turn back, he took back the house I was living in, including the one on the east side of the river, and I’m staying at the hotel on the set.”
She paused and smiled pallidly, “But that’s okay, take it one step at a time!Can’t force me to die.”
Jenny Jing hurriedly held her hand and said in a deep voice, “Don’t you dare talk nonsense!You still have me!”
She said, thinking about it, and pulled a bank card and a set of keys out of her purse and put them in her hand.
“Take this card, the password is my birthday, the money is not much, but spend it first and take it easy later, the key is the key to the flat I used to live in, it’s not a big house, you will be alone for a while, I will visit you regularly.”
The company has been in the process of developing the new product for the past two years, and is now in the process of developing the new product for the next two years.”
Nina Hua looked at her, his eyes gradually reddened, until finally he couldn’t hold back, and tears rolled down in large gobs.
She bit her lip fiercely and lowered her head, only after a long while did she tremble, “Thank you, Jenny.”
Jenny also forced a smile, her eyes following the soreness, and only after a long while did she wipe away the tears, laughing, “Okay, don’t act as if the sky is falling, this is not the Yao Yao I know.If you want to have this baby, don’t worry, I’m your godmother!There won’t be any problem, as for the child’s father, show up or not if you like, who cares about him!”
Nina Hua knew that she was trying to comfort herself, and although her heart was still sore, it was at least a little easier.
She accepted her kindness and laughed along, which eased the atmosphere a bit.
After they finished their meal, based on Nina Hua’s physical condition, Jenny Jing didn’t let her follow her to continue shopping, but instead sent her straight back to the set.
After seeing Nina Hua off, Jenny drove home by herself and called Lu Yanzhi on the way home.
She didn’t mention Nina Hua’s pregnancy, just that it was really inconvenient for her to take the film.
Although Lu Yanzhi was mentally prepared for the phone call, he couldn’t hide his disappointment when he really heard the answer.
Jenny also understood, after all, this thing called drama was sometimes very subjective.
Since the creator has identified one of them to play the role, he or she will always use that as a template in the creative process, whether intentionally or not.
It would naturally be disappointing to learn later that the person could not participate.
She said comfortingly, “There’s nothing I can do about it now, you can ask your friend to look for someone else, there aren’t many of this type in Yao Yao, but if you look carefully you should still be able to find someone who can replace them.”
Lu Yanzhi smiled bitterly and said, “Truth be told, I also had a hand in writing this script, and the role we identified as Nina Hua before was just that we never understood her and didn’t quite dare to ask, but then we worked together on Hidden River Fang Hua Record, and only then did we identify her even more as the one to play the role, and now we’re going back to find a new actor, how can we find one that easy?”
“Besides, this one is not like Hidden River, it’s just a small production, nowadays the actresses who are slightly famous refuse to act, and those who are willing to act are not good enough, there are very few people like Nina Hua who don’t care about the production and just look at the script.”
After he finished, he sighed, and Jenny couldn’t say anything.
After a moment, Biden Lu said, “Actually, Clara has contacted me recently, saying that she wants to be a part of the film and is interested in the female lead role, but because of her sudden illness, I’m not sure about this person.
Although she should be able to get by with her appearance, if you add the late Hattori these, at least better than the others, I’m still worried that she’ll get halfway through the act and make some kind of scandal, and then it won’t end well.”
Jenny was stunned, a little surprised.
Her eyes shifted and she asked, “Does Clara want to take the role too?”
Lu Yanzhi said, “Yeah, honestly, even though my friend is a new director, he’s good at what he does, otherwise I wouldn’t have helped him.So there are quite a few people who want to be in the show, but there’s just nothing suitable.
If you can’t, in the end Clara is a really good choice, although she has been too many scandals recently and her image is not too good, but this is not a loss of flow, as long as the drama is good, the back repercussions should be good.
After all, it’s only a small production, and it’s not really possible to get a curry like her in the past.”
Jenny Jing dropped his eyes, thinking slightly, and suddenly hooked his lips and smiled.
“Okay, I know about that, but if it’s convenient, can you send me a copy of the script?I’ll reply to you tomorrow.”
Lu Yantai was stunned, a little surprised, and didn’t know what she meant by that.
But he didn’t ask too many questions, promised to do so, and then hung up.
Jenny drove back home, just into the door, the phone “ding” a ring, a new e-mail came in the letterbox.
As she changed her shoes, she opened it and read the electronic version of the script that Lu Yanzhi had sent.
Biden Lu had already arrived home, knowing that he was going shopping and eating with his little sister today, so he didn’t disturb her.
By this time the man had finished his meal and gone to his study.
Jenny changed her shoes and went upstairs, not looking for Biden Lu, but going straight back to the bedroom.
Opened the computer and read the script sent by Lu Yanzhi in its entirety, from beginning to end.
The script wasn’t very long, it was only an eighteen-episode show after all, but it took a lot of time because she watched it carefully.
Biden Lu came out from the study and saw her sitting in front of the computer reading something, she was very focused, so she didn’t disturb her.
Unexpectedly, when he got out of the shower and cleaned everything up, he found her still sitting there, engrossed.
He looked at the time, it was twelve o’clock at night, and frowned.
“What are you looking at?”
Jenny was watching attentively when a low, magnetic voice suddenly came from behind her, startling her.
Once he turned around, he was relieved to see that it was Biden Lu.
“Oh, nothing, just a script.”
“What script necessarily?”
The man said, already bending down and wrapping his arm around her to click the mouse, and immediately saw the name of the script.
–The Cannonball Raiders.
The man raised an eyebrow, and Jenny couldn’t help but blush an old face, fidgeting and explaining, “It’s just a tentative name, it should be changed later, uh… that, it’s a script for a play, the production isn’t very big, I’ll take a look at it first.”
Biden Lu smiled coolly, “Just a script, and it’s worth the time you’ve seen it?”
I said, and deliberately fingered the hands on my watch.
Only then did Jenny realize how late it was, she gave a “mmm” and reluctantly agreed.
And now, the other side.
Clara is calling Lu Yanzhi.
It’s late, but not too late or even early for someone in this business.
Naturally, Lu Yanzhi was no exception, known as a night owl, and at this time had just come out of the hotel after discussing the project with a producer, when he received a call from Clara.
“Oh Maya, what’s the matter?”
Clara squeezed the phone nervously, a smile piling up on her face.
“Director Lu, it’s like this, I hear you have a script in your possession and are looking for a woman, yes?”
Lu Yanzhi slightly rested his eyes, even though he knew Clara’s intentions, he still expressed his embarrassment.
“Yes there is, but it’s not me directing it, it’s a friend of mine, he’s just starting out in the industry, he doesn’t have much experience…”
“It doesn’t matter who’s the director, as long as it’s a good script.”
Lu Yanzhi laughed.
“I see, so did you call my friend?”
At the mention of this, Clara came to anger.
The new director, Lin Shufan or whatever his name is, is not very famous, but he has a temper.
She’s at least a top-tier flower nowadays, and her fan base is still there, despite the scandal now.
She’s giving him face by being in his work, and he’s not even saying yes?
What an insult!
But now this situation, Clara has no other better choice for the time being, she has always picked the movie, picking and choosing the role of this one is more suitable for her.
And knowing that Lin Shufan is a good friend of Lu Yanzhi’s, and that Lu Yanzhi is also a producer, you know the quality can’t be any worse.
It’s hard to say, but the show is at the height of its popularity right now, and it’s hard to say if it might be able to curve as a result.
When I think of this, Clara took a deep breath, secretly suppressing her dissatisfaction, and smiled: “I made a phone call, but Director Lin doesn’t seem to know me very well..”
To be honest, Lu Yanzhi was actually somewhat tempted.
After all, according to Lin Shufan that kid’s urine, if he can’t find the right candidate, the drama might just be delayed.
The world thought they were the most shafted, but that was because they didn’t know Lin Shufan.
Someone as talented as him wouldn’t be in this mess if he wasn’t too axial.
They’re all middle-aged and still a new director.
Thinking of this, Lu Yanzhi sighed.
He was trying to get a hold of his best friend, so he said, “I’ll go talk to him about this!I’ll call you then, if I can.”
That tone of voice is probably actually a promise.
Clara was finally relieved.
Laughing, he said, “Thank you, Director Lu.”
Lu Yanzhi hung up the phone with a “hmm” and didn’t say anything to her.
The next morning, he went straight to see Lin Shufan.
Lin Shufan set up his own is a studio, might as well be called a small workshop of his own.
It’s hard enough to be poor and not be able to afford a decent piece of equipment, and it’s hard enough to shoot a movie all on rent.
After Lu Yanzhi entered the office, he walked directly to the worn leather couch across from his desk and sat down.
Lin Shufan sat behind his desk and lifted his eyes to look at him, not speaking.
I don’t know what I’m drumming on my hands, but the keyboard is crackling, and I think I’m typing.
Lu Yanzhi didn’t bother him, sitting there with his legs crossed, lighting himself a cigarette and waiting quietly.
It took about half an hour of waiting before Lin Shufan stopped moving, stood up, and poured a glass of water.
“What do you want from me?Go ahead.”
Looking at his rude tone, Lu Yanzhi choked with anger and said in a bad tone, “I can’t find you if I have nothing to do?”
Lin Shufan smiled coolly, “You wouldn’t have come to see me if you had nothing to do.”
Lu Yanzhi: “…….”
The two went to college together and have been good friends since then.
They are both full of talent, and there is an element of mutual admiration in their friendship.
It’s just that compared to Lin Shufan, Lu Yanzhi is a bit more rounded, so he’s been doing well since his debut, and has since exploded into a few films, becoming one of today’s hottest directors.
It was different for Lin Shufan, who originally had a chance in his early years, but because he was too hard-tempered, he offended a well-known bigwig and was later shut down by the circle.
Even with the help of Lu Yanzhi over the years, he hadn’t found a good opportunity.
Lu Yanzhi knew his friend’s temperament, so he wasn’t really angry.
He tossed the information in his hand onto his desk and said quietly, “Here’s the information from the investor side on the necessary implants.”
Lin Shufan lifted his eyelids and took a look, but he didn’t even flip his eyes, he only gave a cold “hmm” and then nothing happened.
Lu Yanzhi was furious at the sight of this.
“I said Lin, do I owe you anything?The eye is personally delivering information to you and you still look like you don’t like it, it’s King’s father’s stuff, can you have some attitude?A little enthusiasm, at least?Don’t you have any idea how hard it is to get investment with your stupid script?”
Lin Shufan was scolded by him and wasn’t angry.
Instead, he picked up the pile of information and flipped through it at random.
Then, they tossed the stuff aside as if they were done with the task.
“I know, I’ll do it.”
Lu Yanzhi: “…….”
He wordlessly threw a white eye to him, “Okay, I don’t think you can change your stinky temper, I don’t expect you to do anything else, the female lead this time, Nina Hua is out of the picture, but it’s normal for people that curry not to come, it’s abnormal for them to come, now I’m giving you two choices, either continue to wait, or choose Clara, you choose yourself.”
Lin Shufan gave a slight pause, his lazy eyelids moving slightly, then he spat out two words resolutely.
Lu Yanzhi was so angry that he wanted to hit him with the ashtray on the table!
“Wait?Can you afford to wait?What if the investors wait to leave?Where are you going to get another investment?”
Lin Shufan doesn’t speak.
Lu Yanzhi felt his brain kernel ache.
That’s really being a friend and worrying about daddy’s heart!
What does he want with him?
In the end, he sighed and advised, “Lin Zi, the market is very cruel, you’ve polished a script with great difficulty, you don’t want to see it rotten in vain, right?
The subject matter has been fine for the last two years, but in two more years, no one will really read it, and then what will you do?Think about your dreams, are you really willing to just waste away for the rest of your life?Some things are just fine.
Down, is it really that hard?”
Lin Shufan listened to his words, and his bitter face, which had always been without fluctuation, finally moved this time.
He lifted his head and looked directly at Lu Yanzhi, his thin, knife-like lips hidden under his messy beard, before opening slightly after a half-hearted moment.
“People, you can change, but not Clara.”
Lu Yanzhi spread his hands in puzzlement, “Why?”
“She doesn’t fit.”
“So who fits?”
“I don’t know.”
Lu Yanzhi was so angry that he almost jumped up from the couch, he held his head and shook it.
“Forget it, if you’re going to stick it out, keep it up, what are you going to do when I see that Daddy King has run away!”
After saying that, he took his clothes and hurriedly had to leave.
But unexpectedly, before the feet even stepped out the door, Lin Shufan’s hard voice came from behind him again.
“Lend me your computer for a second.”
Lu Yanzhi was so angry that he scolded him back, “No borrowing!Don’t you have your own computer?Do you have to use mine?”
He said, turning the monitor on his desk to face him.
All I saw was a black screen and a long list of codes on the monitor that had been in use for I don’t know how many years.
Only then did Lu Yanzhi realize that he was crackling just now, probably not typing, but tapping code.
He was so angry he literally didn’t know what to say.
Pointing at him, he looked like he hated it.
“What do you think I should say to you?If you’d just bowed your head, you wouldn’t have made a single movie by now.If you were willing to change your stubbornness, you wouldn’t even be able to afford a computer now.It’s so…b*tch-burned!”
Lin Shufan laughed and didn’t take his words to heart.
Instead, he stretched and said quietly, “Remember to have the computer brought over, I need it by four o’clock.”
Afterwards, he actually just swaggered away from his eyes.
Lu Yanzhi had the urge to rush over and fold him up and throw him out the window!
But at four in the afternoon, a brand new laptop was still delivered to Lin Shufan’s office on time.
Lu Yanzhi said in a vicious voice: “Surname Lin, that’s the computer I just bought, specially hired to match!It’s expensive!Be careful how you fu*king use it!If you break or accidentally delete something, I’ll burn all those orchids you love so much!”
Lin Shufan still smiled, not even bothering to return his smile, and got the computer and started working.
He started by importing a video from a portable hard drive into his new computer, without a widget folder.
It takes time to import files, so I waited and got bored anyway and simply clicked on it.
Unsurprisingly, the video had just played and the whole thing was startled.
I saw that it was a video of a performance on stage.
Looking at the picture and the machine next to it, it should be a test run.
In the picture, a woman wearing ink armor and a red tassel on her head stood there, a pole bone, eyebrows immobile and stern, eyes frosty, the whole person without any movement, already outlined a sonorous and valiant taste.
On the platform, a woman in a palace dress cried and quivered, “You’re still here!”
She lifted her chin slightly, her gaze full of an imposing presence that looked down upon the world, and her spear was tossed.
“Yes, I’m coming!”
