The Counterattack Plan of A Villain With Ten Thousand Fans - Chapter 23
In the end, Chu Yunge still didn’t take the final step with Ling Chunan.
Ling Chunan was disappointed, “Why was that man like that?”
098: consoled him: “Host, this person’s views are quite conservative. He should be a good person to date and become your boyfriend.”
“098, why do I feel like you’re gloating?”
098 said in a deadpan: “Host, 098 is a proper system and does not have any emotional factors and thus cannot be gloating.”
Ling Chunan’s satisfaction however, is connected to the fact that Chu Yunge’s arrival meant that he finally wouldn’t have to eat himself anymore.
The disadvantage however was that his desires weren’t satiated.
As a result, the crew would occasionally find that the always good-natured Ling Chunan had sometimes started to have a little temper. For instance, once in a while, he wouldn’t want to put back the cup after drinking water and would ask someone else to put it back. And other times, when his shoelaces were untied, he would ask someone to tie it for him.
Every time they saw this kind of situation, the ladies of the crew would hope that they would be the one to do those tasks. Why weren’t they the ones being ordered to do it?!
But what was the relationship of that foreign-looking handsome guy with A-nan? It looked as if they were in love.
After finishing a scene, Ling Chunan looked at the bright eyes of the man at the edge of the set and smiled. He then saw him elatedly stride over with a cup of water. He looked more like a lackey, than any lackey could ever look.
The people who were blinded by the dazzling sight: “…..”
The few people who knew that Chu Yunge was a bigshot in the production: “….”
Fortunately, after half a month, Chu Yunge had an important matter to settle and went abroad. The people on set were finally relieved.
Originally, they already had Ling Chunan. Then, adding a new guy with the same level of handsomeness, it really affected the efficiency of work done.
The day after Chu Yunge left, Ling Chunan received a call from Lin Tianhao.
“Hello, is this Mr. Ling? I’m Lin Tianhao.” The male lead’s voice came from the other end of the phone, “I don’t know if you still remember but you bumped into my car half a month ago.”
“Of course, I remember. Greetings, Mr. Lin” Ling Chunan’s lips were curved into a smile, “Has your car has been repaired? Please send me the costs and your account number and I’ll call you back.”
“It has already been repaired. You don’t need to shoulder the costs.” The voice on the other end seemed a bit gentler. “I wonder if I’d have the pleasure of inviting Mr. Ling for a meal?”
098: …..This was unscientific. How can the male lead invite its host for a meal?
Ling Chunan tried to refuse, but under the male lead’s exuberance, he half-heartedly agreed to the invitation.
Hanging up the call, the smile on Ling Chunan’s face was brilliant, “098, do you think the male lead is in love with me?”
“…..No.” 098 still insisted.
On the day of their meeting, Ling Chunan just happened to have no scenes to film. He disguised himself and left.
098: “Host, why are you dressed more formally in meeting the male lead than when you first met Chu Yunge?”
Ling Chunan pulled on his necktie, “The male lead doesn’t mind both men and women. He has a human face but the heart of a beast. If I dress to casually, he might regard me as an unruly person. Then what can I do if he wants to do this and that?”
Seeing the exaggerated panic on the other’s face, 098 remained silent. It felt that there was something wrong with the host’s way of thinking.
But because it had absorbed a lot of energy from its host, it couldn’t do anything to compensate it for the time being and had to continue enduring.
When Ling Chunan arrived at the restaurant, the male lead was already there. Both of them were dressed very formally. “Like they were going to have a business meeting.” Ling Chunan commented.
098 had to agree.
The two serious men talked for a while and politely ate their meals. Eventually, the atmosphere between them relaxed.
“The male lead has slept with so many people but looks like it was all in vain.” While Ling Chunan was finding topics to converse with the male lead, he was simultaneously speaking to 098, “Incredibly flirtatious but severely lacking on the basics.”
098: “Host, you need to know that the male lead has the power and influence to ask anyone he wants to sleep with him. Naturally, there’s no reason for him to go out and flirt with people.”
“Tsk. What’s going on with Chu Yunge?”
Recalling the man who was stubbornly living with Ling Chunan, 098 refused to speak again.
“Isn’t this young master Lin?” At this moment, a voice interrupted the two’s conversation. They were met with a handsome roguish young man, “Oh no, it should be President Lin now. Why, after President Lin became a president, did he forget about us brothers?”
098 notified him: “Zhang Chulin. A young master of the Zhang group. He was one of the male lead’s drinking buddies. But the male lead severed his relationship with them after he took over his family’s business. Later in the plot, due to his feud with the male led, he kidnapped the female protagonist’s son and became a cannon fodder.”
Ling Chunan nodded in his mind: “I see.”
Lin Tianhao wrinkled his brows. He clearly didn’t want to acknowledge the roguish looking man but he looked at Ling Chunan and stood up, “I apologize. If third young master Zhang has business to discuss with me, please directly call my secretary. I believe you know the contact details.”
Zhang Chulin was completely unfavored in his family. How could a dandy who was despised by others, have any business to discuss with Lin Tianhao? Hearing Lin Tianhao’s words, Zhang Chulin’s complexion was pale and green. His eyes were like knives stabbing towards Lin Tianhao. He hmphed and was about to turn around when he saw the seated Ling Chunan. His eyes instantly shined, “Speaking of, I was wondering why the great President Lin thought of eating here. It turns out he has a date with a stunning beauty.”
The stunning beauty Ling Chunan who heard what he said, raised his head and hooked his lips up showing a smile.
The young man, who had been raging just now, reddened from his forehead all the way down to his neck.
“I- I’ll be off first. I’ll deal with you next time. Hmph.”
“Pfft.” Ling Chunan suddenly chuckled and said to 098 in his mind: “This person is really interesting.”
098: “Quite interesting.”
“I’m sorry for disrupting the mood.” Lin Tianhao smiled apologetically at Ling Chunan and helped him add some tea leaves into his cup.
Ling Chunan’s conclusion on his first formal meeting with Lin Tianhao was, “This man is so boring. How on earth did he chase the female protagonist?”
098: “This kind of luck, we call it the protagonist halo. Everything is by coincidence.”
However, it may be that Ling Chunan’s very friendly attitude made the male lead misunderstand something. Three days after they met, he surprisingly went on a visit to the filming set.
And as luck would have it, he happened to meet the female protagonist.
Originally, Yang Qingya didn’t have much of an impression at Lin Tianhao’s appearance but she remembered him from their recent dispute at the restaurant. Although she loved her son very much, she hated that man so naturally, her complexion couldn’t be good at seeing him.
Lin Tianhao also clearly held a grudge for that punch last time. When he saw Yang Qingya, although he didn’t show it outwardly, he was extremely disgusted with her.
Afterall, the most annoying thing for a rich and influential man like himself were superficial women using their children to promote their positions.
Ling Chunan can completely guess what Lin Tianhao was thinking but in order to proceed to the next step of the plan, he still greeted Lin Tianhao when he called out to him.
“That is the President of Haotian Entertainment?” A whispered discussion was going on amongst the ladies of the crew, “Why are all these handsome guys coming over to find A-nan lately?”
“It seems that they are all very attentive.” One person answered, “But if I were to date one of them, that handsome foreigner from a while back is more reliable.”
“Nonsense, A-nan is obviously mine. How can he be snatched away by other men?”
“How did my family’s A-nan become yours?”
098 who thought that it would hear other’s criticizing Ling Chunan about his philandering but looked on helplessly as they argued over who Ling Chunan belonged to: “….”
These people’s brains were all as strange as its host.
After meeting Ling Chunan back then, Lin Tianhao went back and thought for a full two days and ultimately determined that he, who had never been smitten by a man before, was truly smitten by Ling Chunan.
After he figured it out, he couldn’t wait to go to Ling Chunan’s production set.
But the moment he saw Ling Chunan, he actually started to be tongue tied.
Ling Chunan played a young blind pianist in the movie. Currently, he still hasn’t removed his makeup. His face appeared particularly young and his figure donned a small white suit that seemed to match his temperament.
Lin Tianhao swallowed a gulp and proclaimed: “I’m here today to tell you that I like you. From today onwards, I want to start pursuing you.”
Before Ling Chunan could finish his sentence, he was interrupted by Lin Tianhao, “I hope you understand that I came here today to inform you, not to ask for your opinion.”
Ling Chunan stared at the man walking away in large strides, “The male lead is sick in the brain.”
098: “Host, that was a standard line of a domineering president.”
Ling Chunan turned around just in time to see Yang Qingya nearby. He smiled at her, “Qingya, is there something the matter?”
“That man just now is a psychopath. A-nan you shouldn’t interact with him.” Yang Qingya frowned.
Ling Chunan was slightly taken aback that the female protagonist who had always looked like a successful career woman would unexpectedly say the three syllables of ‘psychopath’. He soon smiled and nodded, “I see. Thank you.”
After taking another glance at Ling Chunan and seeing that he was sincere, Yang Qingya smiled at him, “He is not a good man. When A-nan sees him in the future, he should hide far away.”
“Counterattack value +10%. Current Counterattack value 45%. Please continue to work hard.”
According to the counterattack value distribution calculated by Ling Chunan, the female protagonist and the male lead together accounted for 35% with the progress already filled up, 10% to the male lead’s company with no progress started yet, 10% to the supporting male lead with also no progress started yet and 45% to the agent who had the biggest portion with 10% progress.
Ling Chunan planned to leave the agent for last. The next step would be the male lead and the supporting male lead’s companies.
Although it seemed that his disfigurement was orchestrated by the supporting male lead alone, Ling Chunan knew that the male lead had purposely leaked out information. Otherwise, how could the supporting male lead appear with a bottle of sulfuric acid at his celebration.
Many things done in his previous life actually had the shadow of the male lead. Ling Chunan felt that it was actually still generous to leave him with nothing at all.
Therefore, he deliberately hooked up with him.
What could be more tragic to an egoistic man than to lose both the beauty and his possessions?
So, the following days, Ling Chunan did not completely reject Ling Tianhao’s advances.
This seemed to stir up Lin Tianhao more that even the media had caught wind of the rumor and attempted to dig out who the lucky guy that the President of Haotian had recently been pursuing with all his might.
That day, Ling Chunan finally loosened his mouth and agreed to the male lead’s invitation to go out for a meal. He was dressed in nice clothes and was preparing to leave. When he opened the door, he saw a travel-worn handsome man.
The man opened his arms, “Baby, I’m back.”
What thoughts remained regarding the male lead were immediately thrown beyond the topmost clouds.
