What he said was the same as confirming Siyu’s previous statement. Everyone on the scene was quick-witted. With a bit of thinking, they immediately knew that this CEO–whether it was deliberate or not–was protecting Siyu. Since this happened, the expression in the onlookers’ eyes that were looking at Siyu immediately changed.
Just now when there was a rumor circulating in the production team that Siyu would be kicked out due to a sponsor, these people were secretly gossiping about it and wondering how Siyu ended up offending the Ji family. And now, Huanyi’s CEO personally supported her. The onlookers were muttering inwardly, This girl didn’t look like much, but she actually had such a powerful background!
“But, when you have to be high-profile, you also need to give some attitude. Otherwise, other people would think that my Huanyi’s people are so easy to be suppressed.” Lu Xingzhou threw a meaningful glance. His subordinate tactfully submitted a document to him. Lu Xingzhou took it over and tossed it to the vice-president’s hand, “ Since the ji family wants to withdraw their investment, then just let them withdraw. From now onward, don’t let them have a hand in Huanyi’s projects. As for Zhou Siyu——”
Lu Xingzhou looked at Siyu. He keenly caught that the corner of her lips twitching and her speechlessness was written across her face. He suddenly remembered the task Fifth Master Lu gave him before he left. Take care of the sickly-looking little rabbit. It’s just something simple. Since there’s someone who wants to drive this girl away and won’t let her continue shooting, then, just change the investor. Done, the problem is easily solved, isn’t it?
The vice-director held the document and cautiously asked, “CEO Lu, this is…….”
“This is CEO Lu’s sponsorship contract with your production crew. You may take a look. If you have no problems with it, we’ll immediately invest the money.” Lu Xingzhou’s man promptly answered for him.
Director Liang, who had just received word about this incident, came rushing on the set late. The vice-director didn’t dare to be careless. He hastily passed this document over to Director Liang and told him the whole story in whisper. When Director Liang opened it, he was immediately stunned. The amount of the sponsorship project that Lu Xingzhou gave out entirely doubled the whole total of the previous investment!
Wow, Huanyi really went all-out! With such a big investment, was there any need for him to pay attention to the Ji family’s face? Of course he would go according to his own ideas! Those people wanted to withdraw their investment, then he also won’t wait on them. When the movie is out, they’ll know they’re the one who’s at loss!
Director Liang held this document and vaguely felt that his hand was slightly burning. However, his heart was very excited. He hesitated, then looked towards Siyu, “I understand your [formal] meaning. Since CEO Lu….. no, what I mean is, Huanyi had such confidence in the production crew and I’m also very optimistic about Siyu. I believe we can work together smoothly.”
Xu Qingwan immediately bit her lower lip with eyes filled with shock and fear. Why? Why did Lu Xingzhou go as far as making an investment just for Siyu?!
How could Zhou Siyu have such good luck! Ji Lin tried his best to protect her, Director Liang spoke endlessly about how talented she was, and even in the face of Ji family’s investment withdrawal, a seemingly irreparable predicament, she had Lu Xingzhou helping her out of the problem….. It shouldn’t be like this, Zhou Siyu shouldn’t be favored by so many people. All of these were very different from her [past life] memory!
But now, no one cared about Xu Qingwan’s thoughts. Furthermore, Lu Xingzhou seemed to treat her like air. He directly passed her and called Siyu and Director Liang to follow him into the lounge. While Director Liang was skimming through the contract, he discovered the name that was signed there wasn’t Huanyi, rather it was three words written with cursive calligraphy: Lu Yuanhe.
“Oh, I almost forgot to tell you this.” As if noticing Director Liang’s uncertainty, Lu Xingzhou looked back and glanced at the signature. He pointed towards Siyu and said in a whisper, “This is the name of the investor. Our Fifth Master said, Miss Zhou should enjoy herself in the production crew. This money is also considered as yours to spend. What he can’t withstand the most is people who abuse their power for their personal gain, to violate the rules.”
Lu Xingzhou said profoundly. When Director Liang heard the two words “Fifth Master”, he almost lost his grip. He widened his eyes and asked, “The one you [formal] spoke of, could it be that person……?”
Lu Xingzhou merely smiled and did not speak. Director Liang’s mouth was agape, as if it was stuffed with an egg. Siyu who stood behind, listened to the riddles these two people spoke in and couldn’t help but remark, “Say, doesn’t your news travel too fast?” [news as in their intel-work]
Lu Xingzhou turned around and looked at her. He looked depressed and frustrated, “Do you know that because of your matter, I was kicked out from the office by Fifth Master and had to fly here to look for you?
Siyu didn’t have an ounce of pity and indifferently let out an “oh”.
Lu Xingzhou felt further aggrieved. He gazed at Siyu quietly until Siyu couldn’t stand it anymore and asked, “What’s the matter?”. Which then he said, “ Be faster with your shots. The sooner you have your filming done, the sooner you will go back. Fifth Master hasn’t been in a good mood lately lately. I don’t want to go near to him and suffer for no reason.”
Siyu couldn’t help laughing, Serves you right! “This depends on Director Liang’s opinion. Work is first.” Staying beside someone like Lu Xingzhou who possessed this kind of good luck caused Siyu’s vitality to gain a boost and her complexion became much better.
Lu Xingzhou’s gaze landed on Director Liang and the latter immediately felt immense pressure, “About this… Actually, just now when I saw Siyu’s acting, I had an idea. Perhaps we can alter Yun He’s script and make her a hidden second female lead.”
It is said that with money, you could do anything you wanted. In addition, Director Liang really liked this unpolished jade named Siyu. So he decided on the spot to add to the script!
