“Tell me honestly, do you know that Zhou Siyu? This advertisement is too amazing, does she have any motive in helping you advertise [/raising publicity]?” Mu Yan inquired closely.
Siyu: “En…. it could be considered as a yes?” [like she could be considered to know zhou siyu]
Siyu herself never thought that this could cause such a huge sensation. But then she thought, she had covered Koi -this alternate account of hers- tightly, so there shouldn’t be anyone that knew she had shamelessly confessed to herself.
Mu Yan took a deep breath, “You have to thank Zhou Siyu nicely this time. I’ll tell you a piece of good news, your 《Fashion Strategy》 has been well received by the readers, especially since this incident coincidentally made it onto the hot search. Even some people had come to buy the comic’s film and television copyright!!”
Siyu was dumbfounded, “for real? !”
“Why would I lie to you ? !” Mu Yao was obviously proud. This was her first time selling the comic’s film and television copyright of her author! Nowadays, screenplays were generally written by professional screenwriters and there’s hardly an example of adapted works. However, there had been several companies that had inquired about the price of Siyu’s film and television copyright, what does this show?
It shows that《Fashion Strategy》, no, Koi is popular, very popular!
“I am currently discussing the price with them. Rest assured, I definitely won’t let you lose money. Do you have any additional requirements? If you have, I’ll include it in the discussion.” Mu Yan was a very responsible editor and Siyu had always been her favorite author. She wouldn’t tell that she is also waiting for updates every day, but she would undoubtedly do her best to get the best deal for Siyu.
Somehow, Siyu suddenly recalled the incident before where Duan Rulan wanted to suppress her by withdrawing investment so that she left the production crew, and a feeling of unrest rose in her heart.
“ I want to retain the right to choose the cast.” Siyu thought over it and said, “If I’m not satisfied with the selected artist, I want them to be replaced.”
Mu Yan readily agreed.
After they finish discussing this matter, Siyu still felt that this was all a bit beyond belief. Her comic….. is going to be adapted into a film?
So she’s going to be out of poverty soon?
This news made Siyu burst into tears in her mind. Just at this time, the program crew announced that it was time for the cooking contest and told every group to prepare their own dinner.
Siyu had recorded a day’s worth of programs. Because everyone knew her health wasn’t good, they were very considerate to her. The majority of them would tell Siyu to sit and wouldn’t let her stand. Even though the program crew told that they have to prepare three meals for themselves, She would be driven away by Ji Lin with the reason that “The kitchen is full of fumes, it will suffocate [smoke/fumigate] you”.
It’s a pity that Ji Lin was a pampered young master. He never had to cook for himself. Once he entered the kitchen, he almost burned through the bottom of the pot. Ultimately, Wen Yuan no longer able to contain himself. He drove Ji Lin out of the kitchen and brought Siyu in.
“ You don’t need to do anything, just watch over the fire, okay?” Wen Yuan rolled up his sleeve and cut the vegetables while throwing an inquisitive gaze at Siyu.
His knife work was very good, it made Siyu ask in curiosity, “Do you usually cook?”
“Just occasionally, because it’s boring to eat by yourself. Oh right, I heard Ji Lin said that you mustn’t stop taking your medicine every day, so I especially leave a small stove for your decocted medicine. It should be ready now, don’t forget to drink your medicine.” Wen Yuan was always smiling. Yet, Siyu didn’t expect him to be so attentive, so she said her thanks in embarrassment.
She poured the decocted medicine into a bowl. Just as she was about to drink it, a gush of a familiar taste of blood well up in her throat. Siyu’s complexion changed and she quickly told Wen Yuan that she’s going to the toilet. She covered her mouth and ran out in a hurry. She arrived at the toilet and vomited everything out. After she finished vomiting blood and cleaned her face, she lifted up her head and spotted Chu Shuangyan standing behind her from the mirror.
“Hey, Let me ask you, what’s your relationship with A-Lin?” Chu Shuangyan didn’t have the patience to speak in a roundabout way and bluntly asked the matter that bothered her the most.
Siyu had just vomited until she was dizzy. She supported herself against the tabletop with difficulty. Her face was pale. When she turned around to face Chu Shuangyan, a burst of headache hit her. However, compared to Xu Qingwan, she’s more willing to face Chu Shuangyan. Although this person had a princess disease, at least she was straightforward and wouldn’t hide anything.
Therefore, Siyu also sincerely answered, “It’s a brother-sister relationship.”
“Are you kidding me?” Chu Shuangyan was totally ungrateful. She only thought that Siyu gave her a perfunctory answer to satisfy her. A fire rose in her heart and she angrily glared at Siyu, “I think you’re just trying to woo him!”
Once again, Siyu regretted that she had created so many rotten peach blossoms for her brother. She rubbed the space between her eyebrows and said, “Since you don’t believe me, then I suggest you to go and ask Ji Lin. Don’t waste your time with me here.”
“You!” Chu Shuangyan was jabbed in her sore spot by Siyu. If Ji Lin was willing to pay attention to her, would she be willing to lower herself looking for an eighteen-line little actress just to ask a question? It’s all this woman’s fault! While pointing at Siyu, she said, “Don’t quibble. There’s a reporter who visited your《Qing Guo》’s crew and personally saw you brazenly follow A-Lin to his lounge. If you’re not wooing him, what else could it be!”
“A reporter?” A reporter from where? Siyu was a bit baffled. Chu Shuangyan saw that she still had that innocent look. She exasperatedly took her phone, opened that news report, and presented it in front of Siyu’s eyes.
“Look at it yourself!”
Siyu quickly read through. This reporter was from Orange Entertainment Weekly Publication. That person claimed that he was interviewing a certain actress from 《Qing Guo》’s crew and obtained a piece of sensational news; Siyu had always been pursuing Ji Lin. When they’re not shooting, she’d go to the other person’s lounge. There’s even a picture of them conversing in front of the hotel room! After a great length of writing, the reporter finally drew a conclusion: It was all Siyu’s one-sided wishful thinking. From the start, Ji Lin had never liked her.
Siyu: “……” with such skill in making up a story, why don’t he just write a novel?
“So, what can this prove?” Siyu lifted up her head and looked at Chu Shuangyan in ridicule.
“Zhou Siyu, don’t be too arrogant!” Siyu’s indifferent attitude enraged Chu Shuangyan. She said through gritted teeth, “I heard you have Huanyi’s CEO as your backer. Do you think because that CEO was a member of the Lu, you can rest easy? However, do you think that your backer has the courage to oppose the person that has authority over the Lu? !”
When she heard the Lu family’s name, Siyu was very astonished, “What does this have anything to do with the Lu’s person-in-power?”
Chu Shuangyan mistook Siyu’s astonishment as fear. She suddenly turned complacent and coldly snorted, “ Ground beetles 1 like you could only curry favors with people of power. I suppose you have never heard the name ‘Fifth Master Lu’, right?
Siyu: …… what a coincidence. Not only had she heard his name, she was also very familiar with it.
Seeing that Siyu didn’t say anything Chu Shuangyan said in ridicule, “Do you know that Chu family is the clan of Fifth Master Lu’s mother? We’re in-laws! If you dare to snatch things from me, I suppose that backer of yours wouldn’t dare to protect you!”
Riel: the IQ and EQ of supporting characters in Chinese novels are always questionable. From which angle that astonishment looks similar to fear? Furthermore, they always grab every chance to ridicule the FL, only to be face-slapped chapters later. Can’t they just interact nicely?
If the ending for CSY, is for her to be cast away from her rich life and her glory-filled job in the entertainment circle or the usual ending for evil side characters with no character development for CSY, I’d be so mad and disappointed.
- 土鳖子 – ground beetle – it means several things; 1) someone who’s behind the times, 2) someone who’s simple or isn’t really cultured, 3) someone who can’t open their eyes to reality, 4) someone who did something bad but yet pretends to be good, 5) someone who takes advantage of the sweat of other people or student returning from abroad. With regards to context, I think the definition most appropriate is most probably 1,2, or 4?
