He said, getting up to walk out.
Evelin was startled and reacted to the face immediately turning ugly, stopping him, “What do you want?”
Cai Laoshi looked at her with a sneer, “I told you, it’s not too much to ask for my son-in-law to ask for some bride price flowers, isn’t it!”
Evelin was so angry that her chest almost exploded.
“Do you want some shame?I have nothing to do with him!But as an investor and the lead actor had a few dinners together, even if for 10,000 steps he really had some interest in me, but we’re not together, so who are you to ask someone for money?”
Cai Laoshi sneered, “That’s none of my business, that’s your business.”
Evelin was so angry that she had a headache, she knew she was a scoundrel as an adoptive father, but she never thought she would be so scoundrel.
All these years, she looks easy and comfortable, but in fact, only she knows the pain.
Ever since her dad passed away ten years ago, her life seemed to have gone to hell overnight and never got better.
After half a while, she red-eyed, took a deep breath, and said: “I really don’t have any money on hand, if you want, wait until I finish the film, this is the only way, or else we will all die.”
Cai Laoshi saw the situation, and although he was still a little dissatisfied, he also knew that there was no other better way.
That’s when he reluctantly said, “Okay then, when are you done with this play?”
“At the end of the month!”
“Well, I’ll wait until the end of the month, and then you don’t want to go back on your word, or…well, you know.”
Evelin choked, not really knowing what to say for a moment.
She rubbed her brow tiredly and said, “Go away, I’ll let you know when the money arrives.”
Only then did Cai Laoshi leave with a satisfied heart.
After Cai Laoshi left, Evelin sat in the room, alone and quiet for a long time.
About ten minutes later, she squared off with a sigh, picked up her phone, and made a call.
The phone didn’t ring many times before it was answered.
Evelin asked carefully, “Sister Su Hong, that… is it okay if I ask you for a favor?”
On the other side, Su Hong’s voice was as cold as ever, “What is it?”
“I…I’d like to get an advance on my pay for the film, is that okay with you?”
Su Hong frowned.
She paused and replied, “I have no say in this matter, are you in a hurry?”
Evelin bit her lip and gave a “hmm”.
“How about this!I’ll ask for you, after all, the credits are paid after the film is killed, so I’ll have them advance you the money if they can be paid in advance.”
Su Hong was completely business-like, not spared, and Evelin was already grateful.
She said evenly, “Okay, thank you, Sister Suhong.”
When the phone hung up, Evelin covered her nervous heart, which was why she felt slightly relieved and headed to the dormitory.
And now, the other side.
After Su Hong hung up the phone, he told Xiao He about it.
Xiao He listened and felt a little surprised.
But thinking that Evelin might have some urgent need, he didn’t think much of it.
However, the main investor of this drama is from the side of Anning International, and Starflight is just hanging on, she can’t make the decision on this.
Jenny didn’t care what happened over at Serenity International now, this was a business matter, so she didn’t ask Jenny and submitted the application there directly.
The next day, the results of the application came in.
The answer she was given there was that she couldn’t get an advance, and there was no such rule in the company.
Evelin was disappointed.
But she also knows that Su Hong Ken
Asking for her help was enough to give her face, so although disappointed, I thanked her.
Back on the set, the whole morning was preoccupied.
The result was that the director, who had rarely been carded before, was frequently called out for being out of place today.
More times than not, the person next to you can’t stop talking about it.
The director was a bit frustrated by it.
He came out from behind the monitor and said, “What’s going on with you today?Is something on your mind?Why do you keep finding no state?”
Evelin lowered her head slightly and bit her lip.
For a moment, she bit down hard and said, “Director, let’s try another one, I’ll try again.”
The director frowned at her.
Even if he was slow, he could see at this point that Evelin indeed had something on his mind, and in this state, even if he tried his best, the result of the shot wouldn’t be too good.
Eventually, he waved his hand and said in a deep voice, “Alright, I see you’re tired, go down and rest first, take care of anything beforehand, and put your part today to shoot tomorrow.”
Then he instructed the next field manager, “Call Su Celery over, and shoot her first today.”
“Okay, I’ll go call right away.”
The director returned to sit behind the monitor, the scene recorder went to call for the sultry craftsman, and soon the scene was withdrawn and replaced with the scene that Sultry needed to shoot.
Evelin stood there, biting her lower lip, only to feel a pang of guilt.
She also knew that she was in a really bad state today, and although she had tried her best to get herself to commit, she couldn’t do it.
Seeing Su Qian proudly walking over in her costume, she could only helplessly retreat to the side.
The director saw her look like she was distracted and frowned, advising, “One mind can’t be used for two purposes, if something is really wrong, take care of the other things first, there’s no hurry to make a movie in a day and a half, and it’s the same when you’re done with it and then continue with this movie.”
Evelin nodded, “I got it, thank you director.”
After leaving the set, she went back to the hotel where the crew had booked her, took a shower, and then lay on her bed, staring at her phone.
Her mind was a little confused, and at this point, she really didn’t know who to call.
It wasn’t that she hadn’t thought of asking Jenny for help, and she knew that this amount of money was nothing to her nowadays.
But she also had her pride and knew her own situation, that person Cai Laoshi was a bottomless pit, she could be unlucky on her own, so why drag her friends down with her.
She would never open up to a friend unless she had to.
While contemplating this, the phone suddenly rang.
She was slightly stunned and picked up the phone, only to see that it was Tailor Feng calling.
This guy, who hasn’t been in touch for 800 years, what’s he doing calling her at this point?
She didn’t want to answer, so she simply hung up, and it must not have been anything serious for him to find her anyway.
On the other hand, Tailor Feng sat on the big chair, with his legs crossed, waiting for a woman to answer the phone, but unexpectedly found that the phone was hung up!
Tailor Feng stared at the blackened phone screen, a burst of anger!
That fu*king woman!How dare you hang up on him?
Everywhere he goes, Tailor Feng is not the object of everyone’s affection, and she is the only one who shakes his face at him time and again.
What a temper!It’s stinky and hard!
He grinded his teeth hard, half-heartedly, and sent her a text message.
“How dare you hang up on me?Looking for death?”
Evelin looked at the message and smiled coldly.
Returned the word, “Heh!”
Tailor Feng could almost imagine the woman’s difficult and disdainful appearance on the other end of the phone.
Anger gnawed at me.
He looked at the phone and smirked.
Yeah, right!You’re going to end up in my hands sooner or later!
After a few more days, Cai Laoshi called her several times in a row, getting more and more urgent about the money.
Evelin only felt that she was about to be driven crazy, sometimes she really wanted to just let him expose it regardless!
Even if she loved acting and wanted to be an actress, she wouldn’t be one anymore, what she has now, she doesn’t care if she doesn’t have it!
But her heart ached at the thought of her mother, who was still in the hospital, and everything she wanted to fish out was crushed in that moment.
Nothing can happen to her!
If even she falls, what about Mom?
It was then that she received a call from Su Hong.
Su Hong, a very direct person, never engaged in the roundabout way of speaking and doing things.
As soon as the call came through, the door was opened and the question was asked, “Do you really need the money?”
Evelin stalled and nodded, “Yes.”
“That’s fine, there’s a stand-up event tomorrow night over at Century City, a few artists under my friend’s hand will be there, not from Starlight but from another company.
I said hello to them, and I’ll bring you with me then, the money’s not much, but there’s still a hundred thousand to share, but I need to go to dinner with them after the event, is that okay?”
Evelin said evenly, “No problem.”
“Well, I’ll let you know tomorrow.”
“Well, thank you, Sister Suhong.”
After hanging up the phone, Evelin was finally relieved.
The thought that after tomorrow, you’ll make a fortune is a little more comforting.
The next day, Evelin took a day off from the crew and went to the scene.
It was only when I got there that I realized it was a car show event, and all the models in attendance were peripheral wild models or some seven or eight line actresses.
These people are entertainers, to put it nicely.It’s just some peripheral girl who travels the fringes of the entertainment industry.
Most of these models were pretty, hot, and just lacked an opportunity, so even though they knew that most car shows like this one were not innocent, they still flocked to them in droves, wanting to come.
Su Hong used to be not a very famous agent, and then she brought out a few slightly successful ones, which is why she applied to Starlite.
Nowadays, the few artists under her hands were all newcomers, except for Evelin, a second-tier actress who could get the job done.
These models, Evelin didn’t know what relationship they had with Su Hong, but figured they should have known each other.
Su Hong herself said that it was her friend who took over the event, and although these models were not famous, it was a good opportunity to participate in the car show.
After all, there are countless beautiful girls trying to squeeze into the entertainment industry these days, and with so many monks, it’s nice to have a chance.
Evelin’s heart was not really willing to participate in such an event, but now, in order to solve the immediate problem, she couldn’t care less.
After changing backstage, she went out with everyone else.
The job was simple, but because Evelin was short, only 1.63 meters tall, which wasn’t too short among ordinary girls, but it wasn’t good enough among models.
So after putting on her makeup, the dressmaker gave her a pair of shoes that were a full 12 centimeters high with a pointy, thin heel.
After wearing it all afternoon, both feet hurt like they weren’t their own.
But when she thought of the hundred thousand dollars, she thought it was worth the hard work, and gritted her teeth to get through it.
What I didn’t expect, however, was that it would be easy.
The afternoon station work was over, but the staff came in from the outside, clapped their hands and said, “Don’t leave, everyone, wait for Chen and Huang to set up a dinner party, go eat together.”
Evelin was slightly stunned.
Su Hong did mention to her before that we might have dinner together after work.
But there were so many models, a dozen or so, that she had just looked over at the stand-up, that she shouldn’t have to go to every one of them, so she was making plans in her mind to refuse.
Unexpectedly at that moment, a girl next to her had spoken before her.
“Brother Wang my stomach isn’t feeling too well today, can I not go?”
The manager known as Wang sneered, “Then can you not receive your appearance fee today?”
The girl who asked the question had a small face that reddened and bit her lip, not daring to speak.
Evelin stood beside her, seeing the situation even more afraid to offer to go first.
It wasn’t until the man known as Wang went out that the crowd relaxed.
There was a small complaint or two, but no one said anything more.
Evelin took a look around and carefully asked the people around her, “Why do they want us all to go over for dinner?Where to eat?”
The girl she asked had been to an event like this before, so it was kind of a breeze.
She sniffed and looked at her, “Your first time.”
“That you can put smart at night, in fact, do our line of work, sometimes it’s just to put your own eyes out, the brain turns faster, there will be nothing, everyone is out looking for fun, and will not intentionally embarrass anyone.”
Evelin was slightly stunned and frowned at her words.
The girl laughed again: “It’s quite strange, we participate in this kind of activities for a living, it’s not strange, why do you think you’re an actress who has become such a big star?You wouldn’t be short of the $100,000, either.”
Evelin stalled, barely smiling.
“I just came over to see, I’ve never done it before, so I’m just experiencing life.”
The girl snickered after hearing that.
“Fine, then you experience it!”
Afterwards, he changed and headed to the bathroom.
Evelin stood there, a little embarrassed, but there were reasons that could only be known about herself and not for the outside world, so she had no choice but to follow along.
The meal was in the city, in a very upscale luxury hotel.
Evelin followed everyone out of the car and headed inside.
She had changed back into her own clothes, a white casual suit that looked clean and smart but also slightly rustic.
She actually dressed that way on purpose.
After all, it would be dangerous to not dress down in this environment.
The man called Wang who led them over looked at her and frowned with some disgust.
But nothing was said, and the group was led to the eighth floor of the topmost floor.
All the way up the lift to the eighth floor, through the lavish lobby, and finally everyone stopped at the door of a VIP box.
Even through the door, you could hear the lively music and noise inside.
Naturally an attendant opened the door for them, and an air of extravagance came over them.
Evelin couldn’t help but cover her nose, and Wang was the first to walk in, smiling, “Sorry, I got stuck in traffic on the way, I’m late.”
“Little King, where’s the beauty you promised to bring over?Why don’t you see anyone?”
“Come on, all of you, we’re all guaranteed to have a good time tonight.”
As he said, he gave a wink to the girls outside the door, and the crowd, though reluctant, were also bent on taking their chances, and were the first to go in.
Evelin followed at the end of the crowd and spat in her heart countless times.
Where’s the commercial activity?
This is blatantly asking them to be escort girls under the guise of a business event.
But luckily there were a lot of people, so she should be fine, and she’d try to minimize her presence later, and muddle through tonight anyway.
Thinking that, she cringed.Try to make yourself look creepy and small.
When I entered the box, I realized that it was already full of people, and it was incredibly large, at least a hundred square feet.
There was a slew of men and women sitting on the couch in front of them, including even a few famous actresses in the entertainment industry.
Evelin was surprised to see them.
She thought that all these people were already famous and established in the entertainment industry, and should be very impressive, so why would they still come to a drinking party like this?
And by looking at the man sitting next to them, one could tell at a glance that they were just a sidekick, just like themselves.
Who the hell are the people who showed up here tonight?
The first thing you need to do is to take a look at the newest addition to your own collection of products, and then you’ll be able to see what you’re looking for.
After saying that to the group of people compensating smile, “Mr. Li, Mr. Huang, long time no see, today over here are all newcomers, please take care of them.”
Saying that, he pulled the two girls over and introduced them, “This is Xiaoyu, this is Qingqing, call someone quickly.”
“Hello, Mr. Huang!”
“Hey, good, good.”
Evelin witnessed that Li holding the girl’s hand and looking lustful as the other girl sat next to Huang.
She didn’t turn pale, her perception of the evening’s drinks refreshed once again.
Where this is a drinking game, this is simply pandering.
I’m sure this Wang is the one who does this kind of thing all the time, and these peripheral women, if they can climb up to one of the big names in the entertainment industry, they might have a chance to get ahead, so they’re happy to participate.
It just didn’t occur to me how Su Hong would get involved with these people.
As Evelin’s mind was wandering, the man was pulled over by Wang and pressed against an obese man’s side.
“Mr. Liu, this is the current hotshot, he’s been in several movies before!You’re going to have to take better care of me tonight.”
The one who was called Liu, smilingly looked at Evelin and nodded, “No problem, I like this kind of innocent actress.”
The other party said, and the fat hand touched towards her hand, Evelin only felt nausea in her stomach, and had the urge to run away.
Looking up, however, and touching Wang’s warning glance, the nausea was eventually suppressed.
Well, for the sake of money, just bear with it!
Thinking this way, she motionlessly withdrew her hand, lifted her glass, and smiled, “Mr. Liu, I’ll drink to you.”
Seeing that she was so proactive, that Mr. Liu was obviously very happy, so he took a glass of wine and had a toast with her.
Drinking Kang Loyo isn’t afraid.
After all, you’re a pretty good drinker.
If drinking would ensure that she didn’t lose out, she’d rather drink more.
After making these arrangements, that king left, and never reappeared for the entire night.
Evelin drank a lot of wine, and in the beginning, that Liu was pretty disciplined, but at the back, he started to be dishonest.
Hands were always there to touch her, even trying to cup her waist.
Evelin all avoided it without moving, and that Liu was not reluctant to do so, only to look at her again with a few hints of displeasure.
“I’ve heard you’ve been in a few plays before.Can you talk to me about it?”
This Mr. Liu doesn’t seem to have much to do with the entertainment industry, Evelin forced a smile and replied, “It’s all just small productions, Mr. Liu, let’s drink.”
After saying that, he was about to take a glass of wine, but was unexpectedly stopped by Liu.
He had already seen that Evelin was a good drinker, even better than himself, so it was unrealistic to get her drunk.
So with a smile, “There’s no rush, too much alcohol is not good for a girl’s health, let’s talk about your filming first.”
Evelin squeezed out a dry smile, “Uh, yeah.”
“Actually, I happen to have a modern drama on my hands, and I think your image and temperament are quite fitting for the lady of the show.”
But any sane person would have been delighted after hearing that.
Then follow up by asking what the film is and if you have a chance to be in it.
Unexpectedly, Evelin only gave a faint “oh” and then said nothing.
Liu frowned at her.
It had been a whole night already, and as patient as he was, he was a little impatient by now.
Is this girl in front of you really ignorant, or is she deliberately playing dumb?
He beckoned to a nearby waiter and offhandedly whispered something to him.
The waiter left with a respectful nod.
Only then did Liu look at Evelin with a sneer.
Who cares if she really doesn’t understand or if she’s pretending not to, since he’s got his eye on her tonight anyway, there’s no escape!
Evelin didn’t know at this point what plans were in the heart of Liu, sitting there looking at the time, it was already twelve o’clock, and there were already people leaving the box one after another.
She thought to herself that it probably wouldn’t be long before this game was over!
A little relieved, after all the dreadful night on the alert, it was nice to be able to leave soon.
Just then, the waiter came over and poured two glasses of wine for the two men.
Liu lifted his wrist, looked at the time and smiled, “It’s getting late, I have to get back, Miss Evelin, nice to meet you, one last drink?”
Evelin’s eyes lit up at the news and raised her cup, “Good.”
She didn’t doubt it, and drank the glass of wine, which just tasted a little strange to her.
But she was about to leave, so she didn’t think much of it, and after finishing her drink, she saw that Liu had already stood up.
“Miss Shi, are you going to stay here?”
“Uh, no, I have to go too.”
Bullshit!Why are we still here when it’s over?
She stood up in a hurry, and that Liu’s eyes flashed and he smiled lightly, “Then let’s go out together.”
The two of them headed out together, and the other girls who came with Evelin didn’t think much of it.
Or rather, no one noticed them at all.
