Yan Yaoxuan stood at the door and saw that.
What was Shen Jintai doing???
Shen had been taking his big brother's coat with him, and just picked it up and smelled it?
How could Shen be such a slut? Why Shen’s so obsessed with his big brother!
Yan Yaoxuan's eyes suddenly on Shen Jintai's butt.
He didn't notice before that Shen Jintai had a bubble butt. It was apparent, and they were still in his pants.
Yan Yaoxuan's throat moved with swallowing, and his lips felt slightly dry.
Shen Jintai closed the wardrobe, and when he looked back, he saw that the door opened a bit and there was a man standing outside.
It freaked him out.
“Yaoxuan?” He didn't know how long Yan Yaoxuan had been standing there. Did he see that behavior just now?!
Yan Yaoxuan opened the door and said: “Your door is not closed. I didn't mean to peek at you.”
Shen Jintai smiled and said: You’re looking for me? Come in.”
Yan Yaoxuan shook his head and said: “I have something else to do. I'm going to a car race with my friends. Are you coming?”
“I'm going to try the make-up and the costumes for that TV series today”
Yan Yaoxuan didn't say anything. He closed the door and left.
Shen Jintai looked at the clock and called Xiaotang.
Bai Qingquan and Yang Lizhi were all absent in the script reading this time. They were both the top-level superstar so their itineraries were already scheduled. They couldn't participate in every script reading. The leading man and lady didn’t show up, there was nothing much for the supporting roles to do. So, their time were mainly used for trying out the make-up and the costumes.
In the break, Shen Jintai went to the corridor to smoke. Just after he took two smoke, he saw Zheng Siqi coming.
Zheng Siqi seemed to have a sense of guilt: “I'm sorry. I didn't expect to be photographed by the paparazzi after our dinner together last night.”
Shen Jintai took a sip of smoke, narrowed his eyes slightly. He smiled at Zheng Siqi and said: “It's OK.”
He took out the cigarette and gave one to Zheng. And Zheng Siqi really took it and lit it himself, though judging by his gesture, he had never smoked before.
From outside the sun beam came in through the window. It had just rained and the sun was gentle. Zheng Siqi smoked, hung down his head and said: “That hyping was my company’s work.”
After all, he was raw and wasn’t so shameless. After taking advantage of Shen’s popularity, he felt that he did something awful to Shen. Shen Jintai comforted him and said: “I have to thank your company for letting me get all the attention for free. It's a win-win situation. You don't have to feel sorry. But don't you think you might be affected for having something to do with me? My reputation’s infamous.”
Zheng Siqi blushed and said: “I’m for the company’s decision."
Hearing that, Shen Jintai laughed.
Zheng Siqi was always a little nervous when facing Shen Jintai. Shen was only 20 years old, two months younger than him, but he had a feeling that Shen’s calm and deep. Shen started earlier, maybe that’s the reason. Although he is young, but he had seen many. Zheng Siqi thought that even if Shen Jintai was not as popular as before, he was still someone he could look up to.
“Sister Wen said that at eight o'clock in the evening, my company will explain everything… Sister Wen is my agent.” Said Zheng Siqi.
Shen Jintai nodded, shook his cigarette, and saw a group of people coming from the other end of the corridor.
There were about seven or eight people, led by a bearded man. He was followed by a handsome man in sexy clothes. When he saw Shen Jintai and Zheng Siqi, he pulled the arm of the bearded man. He looked at Shen Jintai and said: “It was him, he took my role.”
The beard bearded man looked a bit fierce. After seeing Shen Jintai, he went right into the director's room, leaving five or six men in black standing in the corridor like bodyguards.
Do you know him?” Shen Jintai asked Zheng Siqi.
“His name is Liu Hui. He was one of the last two candidates for the role. That’s what I saw on the picture wall.”
Whether it’s a movie or TV series, the investment is generous or small, as long as there’s money involved, there will be those who can bring investment to the group. Even in the top-level director's group, there’s someone who got his or her role this way.
Liu Hui was one of them. His lover was that bearded man, one of the important investors of “Here comes the East Palace”.
It's the most normal thing in the showbiz, someone wants to act and his or her sugar daddy’s going to pay for it. The bearded man bought him a secondary leading role.
Liu Hui was indeed good-looking, but his acting was so bad that Guo Rui couldn't stand it in the audition, so he had to delay the decision. He needed to find someone who was good enough. The one the director was looking for should either fully get the character or have to be so well-known that no one would say no to him.
Finally, Shen Jintai was appointed. First, his acting skills were fine, second, he was really famous. Besides, his relationship with Bai Qingquan was a free advertisement.
Although the contract had been signed, Shen Jintai was still nervous.
The film hadn't started yet, a contract could be useless. He also had the experience of being replaced halfway through the shooting of a movie.
The next room was very noisy. It seemed that there were quarrels. Shen Jintai went to the bathroom in the interval of taking photos. He was bowing his head and washing his hands. He saw Liu Hui coming in, leaning against the door frame with his arms folded, staring.
Shen Jintai turned off the tap as if he hadn't seen him.
“The role is min.” Liu Hui raised his eyebrows and said.
Shen Jintai took a piece of napkin, wiped his hands and asked: “It's settled?”
“Not yet, but it will be settled soon. Let me tell you in advance. Don't try the make-up and the costumes. Those costumes will be redone according to my size.”
A little girl with a sharp eyebrow.
“Then let’s wait until it's settled.” Shen Jintai said calmly.
He looked calm, but panicked on the inside. He felt that the director was the only one in the whole crew who liked him. But the director couldn't compare with the Capital. The bearded man must be wanting to make his lover a superstar. As for sunshine media, which invested the most, the boss was Yan Qiuchi. Shen thought Yan Qiuchi might wanted him gone more keenly.
If the two major investors want to change him, he will be out of business.
The crew probably heard about it, they were all quiet in the reading procession the afternoon. The director was absent.
Bai Qingquan also heard the news through WeChat group on the platform in another city, and he then sat in the lounge frowning.
“What's the matter?” Weige asked: “What's wrong?”
Bai Qingquan raised his head and his face was full of surprises: “I heard from Xiao Wang that Shen Jintai's role was about to be taken.”
Weige also knew that already: “Don't you regret recommending him? He's going to be replaced. You can be at ease.”
“But... I don’t know, should I say something in his favor?”
Since Shen Jintai took the role, he had been struggling between regret and not regret.
He wanted to enjoy the happiness of having Shen Jintai to set off him, but he was afraid that Shen Jintai's performance would be incredible and Shen would steal his thunder.
At the same time, he also felt sorry.
"How rich Shen Jintai used to be. When he started, he took money to buy fans and really bought his championship. Later, when he and I competed for the same soap opera. He directly paid tens of millions of investments. I was about to sign on the contract, but he pushed me away. He was glorious then.”
As a result, he’s going to be replaced.
Karma’s really a bitch!
Weige thought the same: “He finally gets what he deserved for what he’s done.”
Bai Qingquan leaned on the chair and smiled.
He felt that he was not cold-blooded enough.
Maybe it was because he had also experienced it and he knew how frustrated and angry he was. He didn’t feel as good as he thought though it was his opponent’s turn to experience it. He even thought that if Shen Jintai was really replaced, he might talk to the director for Shen.
“I’m so nice!” Bai Qingquan thought. He thought a nice actor like himself should be popular forever!
Because of he was nervous about whether he could get the role, Shen Jintai didn't say a word on his way back and lay down in the car, resting.
Li Meilan comforted him: “I asked around. The director was still standing on your side. The contracts have been signed. It's not that easy to replace you.”
“Is there a company that wants me recently?” Shen Jintai opened his eyes and asked.
Li Meilan was shocked for a moment: “You want to work under a company?”
“I don't think it's enough for the three of us to fight alone. It's better to rely on someone bigger.”
People with no great support like him can do nothing when encounters something like this. No one would fight for him.
“There were so many big companies wanted to sign you, you just didn't want to. I guess everyone still thinks you don't want to be under any companies, so no one comes in contact.” Li Meilan said: “We should be cautious when choosing companies. We can't just sign to any company.”
Shen Jintai nodded: “I'll think about it again.”
If he signed up with some evil companies, he would only get ripped off. It might be worse than working all by himself.
In the future, he will start his own studio and become his own boss.
Just thinking about it, the phone rang. It was Guo Rui who called.
Shen Jintai took a deep breath, his nervous voice trembled a little: “Director Guo.”
“Hi, you're back?”
“Yes.” Shen Jintai asked: “Do you need me to go back?”
“No.” Guo Rui said: “I'm calling to inform you that you are still in the cast, don't worry.”
Shen Jintai suddenly became emotional, tears gathering in his eyes. It seemed that it's not only for this, but also for a lot of his past memories of losing something that he once had. This kind of loss is painful, and only those who have experienced it can understand it.
“Thank you, director.” he said: “I know that you’ve done a lot for me. I’ll do my best and I won’t let you down.”
Guo Rui said with a smile: “In fact, I can’t take all the credits. It was Mr. Yan who made the final decision.”
Shen Jintai was stunned.
