Lu Zhi Wei could no longer understand the twists this plot was taking.
Who secretly changed the script in the hands of the female lead? Why else would she not be following it?
Lu Zhi Wei was done with being pranked, she chose to seek assistance from the knowledgeable Lao Wu: 【the female lead is not following the plot, how is this possible?】
Lao Wu didn’t reply immediately, taking his time to think in silence.
Since even the male protagonist halo could change owners, then the plot could certainly generate some small changes that didn’t matter too much.
As long as the two leads had a beautiful, romantic, loving happy ending, everything could be smoothed over.
And in a sense, Sang Wan Ci could be said to be following the original script.
In the original script, she was already preparing to work together with the male lead, with their first encounter happening.
But now the male lead was Lu Zhi Wei, so Sang Wan Ci coming to audition for《Questioning Deity Sect》 was also considered preparing to work with the “male lead”.
Looking at it that way, the female lead was following the plot.
Thinking about it, Lao Wu calmly reassured Lu Zhi Wei: 【It’s okay, small problem, don’t panic.】
If even the professional said it was a small problem, then Lu Zhi Wei, this replacement male lead, had nothing left to say.
Whatever, it’s fine, it’s okay. Please read at jiulian lian .
As long as she didn’t need to suddenly say stuff like “I like you” to Sang Wan Ci, it’s fine.
Following which, she thought of the fact that she needed to explain things to Sang Wan Ci.
She wasn’t scamming her that day.
She didn’t mean to kneel down on one knee either.
It was all an accident, don’t think of her too ridiculously, this child was innocent!
Thinking about it, she asked Wen Yao to head outside first and wait for her as she prepared to go talk to Sang Wan Ci.
Wen Yao had just been her manager for a few days and didn’t know much about Lu Zhi Wei’s personality.
Seeing that she was going to talk to Sang Wan Ci, she suddenly felt a bit worried.
Sang Wan Ci was more popular than Lu Zhi Wei, and she even had Zhang Xian Rui, someone that anybody in the industry had to give face to.
Neither of the two were people to be trifled with.
As a small manager and a new actress, they had to be cautious about how they acted.
Wen Yao quickly pulled Lu Zhi Wei to a stop, asking: “What are you doing? We can’t randomly offend people.”
Lu Zhi Wei: “?”
She scratched her face in confusion: “Do I look like I’m going to pick a fight?”
“……” Please read at jiulian lian .
Wen Yao spoke hesitantly: “That’s not it, I was worried……”
—— Worried you would stir up problems and be disliked.
Lu Zhi Wei understood and reassured her: “Don’t worry, I’m not someone who likes to cause trouble.
There’s just a misunderstanding that needs to be cleared up.”
Thinking about it with furrowed brows, Wen Yao said: “Then go ahead, I’ll wait for you here.”
Lu Zhi Wei went ahead.
The moment Sang Wan Ci stepped into the hall, she immediately saw Lu Zhi Wei.
It was probably because their initial encounter was so memorable, even her line of sight was drawn to Lu Zhi Wei.
After she managed to get a clear look at the other’s face, her eyebrows creased lightly.
She clearly had not expected the other person to be here.
What an odd coincidence.
Back then, she had not thought the other person was a colleague in the industry.
An odd colleague who would kneel down on one knee the first time they met.
Seeing Lu Zhi Wei suddenly walking over to her, Sang Wan Ci’s eyes filled with wariness.
Lu Zhi Wei was stunned, her feet stopping as well.
Asking uncertainly: 【Am I mistaken? Why do I feel like the way she’s looking at me isn’t like how she should be looking at normal people?】
Lao Wu: 【Well, no normal person would kneel on one knee the first time they meet?】
Lu Zhi Wei: 【……】
Thanks, she embarrassed herself.
If that was the case, then she needed to explain the misunderstanding even more.
Lu Zhi Wei had no choice but to drag along the three rooms and living room she carved out and awkwardly say to Sang Wan Ci: “Miss Sang, I wanted to explain about last time.
Things aren’t like you think……”
She was talking, but she didn’t dare to move an inch, afraid Sang Wan Ci would turn and leave.
Her expression was sincere, a pair of bright almond-shaped eyes looking incredibly innocent.
Sang Wan Ci gazed at her silently.
Even though her looks weren’t the type to catch everybody’s eyes at once, she did have delicate, clear features and she looked comfortable with a natural sense of innocence that wouldn’t put people on guard.
She didn’t seem like someone who would lie.
Zhang Xian Rui turned her head to ask Sang Wan Ci: “You two know each other?”
Sang Wan Ci shook her head lightly and replied honestly: “We’ve only seen each other before.”
Then she continued: “Zhang jie, go ahead, I’ll wait for you here.”
Zhang Xian Rui looked at her then patted her shoulder: “Wait for me here then, I’ll quickly arrange things then come back.”
Sang Wan Ci obediently nodded.
When Zhang Xian Rui walked away, she finally looked at the frozen Lu Zhi Wei.
Lu Zhi Wei stood at her original spot, holding her fingers, like a child who had been punished to stand there, pitifully.
“What did you want to say?” Sang Wan Ci took the initiative to speak.
Lu Zhi Wei looked overjoyed, quickly taking two steps forward.
But after looking at Sang Wan Ci’s face, her movements became careful and she eventually maintained an appropriate distance.
Wen Yao, who was standing behind, was completely lost.
What was she doing?
When did her actress know Sang Wan Ci?
Lu Zhi Wei also felt awkward, touching her fingers as she called out: “Miss Sang.”
She continued: “It was a complete accident the last time, I definitely had no intentions of scamming you.
At that time, I just…… My legs went weak! I didn’t stand stably enough so I fell towards you, I’m really sorry.”
Sang Wan Ci lifted an eyebrow slightly, half in disbelief: “Really?”
“Really!” She emphasised.
“Miss Sang, please think about it.
Scamming is for extorting money, if I really wanted to scam you, why didn’t I grab onto you and shout for compensation instead of letting you go?”
Sang Wan Ci thought this was logical and nodded.
Lu Zhi Wei continued: “As for my legs going weak……”
Sang Wan Ci suddenly looked at her with wide-open eyes.
Sang Wan Ci looked mature and elegant.
Gracefulness and regality seemed to be imprinted into her every movement, making others unable to look away.
It also made others feel like she wasn’t easily tricked or fooled.
As if if someone fooled her today, five hundred men in suits would be storming their doors tomorrow to “enquire” on them.
And from Lu Zhi Wei’s limited knowledge, with her identity, she really could find five hundred men to deal with people —— or more.
Lu Zhi Wei didn’t want to be enquired about, but being honest and saying there was an electronic system in her body sounded even more like a lie!
So she could only muddle her way through.
“Mm…… In everybody’s daily lives, it’s not like your legs don’t suddenly go weak, right?”
Sang Wan Ci didn’t speak. Please read at jiulian lian .
The two of them looked at each other and time felt as if it was being stretched.
Even the seconds became long and arduous.
In the silence, Lu Zhi Wei felt like she was being too ridiculous and that she was going to be “enquired” about.
Everyone was silent.
Sang Wan Ci’s silence was the enquiry of five hundred men tomorrow.
Tough, it was too tough.
A transparent existence trying to be a good male lead was too tough.
She was hanging in silence with Sang Wan Ci when the system suddenly appeared to break the tension.
【Mission issued: Tell female lead Sang Wan Ci the following lines “you’re a bit freakish today.”, “freakishly good-looking.”】
【Time limit: Six minutes】
Lu Zhi Wei: “……”
Ah, this oily smell that’s wafting through the air.
Her fists were hard.
In the past, I only knew you were a king of electricity, I never thought you dabbled in oil fields!
With this occurrence, she would only have met twice with Sang Wan Ci.
Saying such lame pickup lines on the second meeting, is there a hole in your brain!
Was the original male lead Qiu Luo such an oily person?!
【This is too oily!】 She complained.
Lao Wu blandly reminded her: 【You still have to do it, within six minutes or you’ll be shocked again.
【Do you want to kneel on one knee in front of Sang Wan Ci again?】
Lu Zhi Wei: “……”
She rather not.
Or else Sang Wan Ci would probably really equate her with a mental patient.
But she still wanted to fight back, so she asked: 【Can’t you adjust the level of punishment?】
High-ranking administrator Lao Wu: 【I can.】
Lu Zhi Wei suddenly saw hope: 【I really think that saying this stuff the second time we met is a bit too ridiculous.
As my mommy fan, aren’t you planning to rescue me?】
Lao Wu said righteously: 【Yes, I’m not planning to.
Because I’m a career fan and a CP fan.
To get you two into a CP, I’m duty-bound.
【Hurry up, grown-up kids should know how to create sweetness on their own!】
Lu Zhi Wei: 【……】
Sheesh, what a career fan and CP fan!
She was speechless!
Sang Wan Ci had finished her silent contemplation and thought that Lu Zhi Wei did make some sense.
It seems like she was the one who misunderstood her that day.
Since it was a misunderstanding, she should apologise.
She was just about to open her mouth when Lu Zhi Wei’s voice floated into her ear, a bit of awkwardness audible: “Miss Sang, you’re a bit freakish today……”
Sang Wan Ci: “?”
She didn’t understand: “Freakish how?”
Lu Zhi Wei pressed her lips together tightly, her heart lurching.
Sang Wan Ci: “……”
She silently took two steps back.
【System decision: Mission completed.
【Mission points +1】
“……” Please read at jiulian lian .
Lu Zhi Wei’s heart was tired.
Look at this person taking two steps back……
Qiu Luo being able to flirt with a beauty like Sang Wan Ci using such oily lines was bloody outrageous!!
Lu Zhi Wei tried her best to salvage the situation: “That…… I saw you not talking, so I wanted to lighten the atmosphere?”
Not daring to look Sang Wan Ci in the eye, she quickly continued: “If there’s nothing else, I’ll leave first.
Wishing Miss Sang a successful audition, bye bye!”
And she even added a line: “I will always support you, work hard.”
Sang Wan Ci looked at her back as she was fleeing and raised an eyebrow.
—— What a strange girl.
Zhang Xian Rui had just returned in time to hear Lu Zhi Wei’s “I will always support you, work hard”, so she asked Sang Wan Ci: “Your fan?”
Sang Wan Ci didn’t know whether to shake her head or nod, she could only say: “I don’t know.”
Zhang Xian Rui was followed by the director of 《Questioning Deity Sect》.
Seeing Sang Wan Ci, her eyes filled with happiness as she was left speechless.
—— This was the female lead she had in her heart, Qiao Jing!
Sang Wan Ci sat in the car, reading the script.
Zhang Xian Rui was beside her, scrolling through Weibo as she asked casually: “Did you clear up the misunderstanding with that girl?”
She added another line out of curiosity: “What misunderstanding did you two have?”
Sang Wan Ci nodded her head lightly: “The first time we met, I thought she was a scammer.”
Zhang Xian Rui: “?”
Sang Wan Ci flipped a page: “Because her legs went weak, she accidentally knelt down on one knee.”
Hearing that, Zhang Xian Rui laughed: “Maybe she was lying to you.
“Her legs weren’t weak, nor was it an accident, she’s just your fan.
“Didn’t you see? Bai Meng being proposed to by a fan on one knee is still trending on the hot search.
So, I think maybe that girl really is your fan, the crazy devoted type that wants to get married to you.”
With her actress’s face, both men and women weren’t exempted from being attracted.
Slightly startled after hearing that, Sang Wan Ci said uncertainly: “She…… shouldn’t be my fan.”
What’s a single sentence of support, it could just be politeness.
Zhang Xian Rui smiled and changed the topic, handing her phone over: “Let’s not talk about it, come look at your fans’ greasy pickup lines.”
Sang Wan Ci took the phone and looked at it.
@Stop Raining!: @Sang Wan Ci Kiddo, I went exercising today.
What sort of exercise, exercising my heart beating for you
@Can I go to your house to eat two big spoonfuls: @Sang Wan Ci Baby, I went to plant a field today.
What kind of field, a field of undying devotion to you [dog head]
@Sang Sang Look At Mommy: @Sang Wan Ci Kiddo, do you know the difference between you and the stars in the sky? The stars are in the sky, you’re in my heart [Shy]
At that moment, Sang Wan Ci suddenly thought of the two lines Lu Zhi Wei had said.
—— Miss Sang, you’re a bit freakish today.
—— Freakishly good-looking.
It was the same style as the confessions from these fans.
Kneeling on one knee.
A greasy pickup line.
These clues suddenly joined together and the truth was right in front of her eyes.
Her beautiful eyes widened in surprise.
—— So she was actually a crazy devoted fan who wanted to propose???
