Chapter 90: Chen Xiuqi Returns (1)
Chen Yan brought five assistants and they carried numerous suitcases. She walked up and greeted Director Zhou Tongguang. “Director Zhou, long time no see.”
“Long time no see.” Director Zhou Tongguang’s attitude towards Chen Yan was much more enthusiastic. He smiled and complimented, “You’ve gotten even more beautiful.”
Women loved being beautiful, especially women within the entertainment circle. Chen Yan smiled and said, “I love hearing this.”
Four years ago, the first drama Chen Yan acted in after debuting was with Director Zhou Tongguang. He was her patronage. The two naturally were much closer than others.
After Chen Yan was done talking to Director Zhou, she greeted Yu Hui who was by the side. “Hi Producer Yu.”
“Hello. I haven’t congratulated you for getting the Hundreds Flowers Award for the best female actress.”
Chen Yan tilted her head to the side and blinked her yes. She curled her lips into a grin. “Do you want me to treat everyone?”
Yu Hui softly chuckled. “What do you say?”
Chen Yan was very straightforward and immediately said, “Once we’re done taking makeup photos, we’ll go to Kai Yue Hotel to eat. I’ll treat you guys.”
Yu Hui looked at Zhou Tongguang and said, “Do you hear this? Film Empress Chen is treating everyone out to eat. She is covering this meal!”
Everyone started to laugh and agreed. “Ok, Chen Yan is the straightforward one, it seems.”
Zhou Peiyun who had witnessed the entire process bumped Su Yaya with her elbow. She whispered and reminded her, “Do you see this? Learn from her. She was the one late but she soothed Director Zhou and Producer Yu and made them happy within a few sentences. They all remember how good she is. Why would they be angry at her now?”
“You’re right!” Su Yaya nodded, taking this information in.
This was the entertainment circle. People followed whoever was popular. Chen Yan just obtained the Hundred Flowers Award for the best female actress and everything has been going well her way. Zhou Tongguang and Yu Hui obviously regarded her highly. She was the female lead of this entire drama. The biggest point was that she knew how to conduct herself and she was good at complimenting others. It was obvious that the two would be close to her.
Once Chen Yan was done catching up and complimenting Zhou Tongguang and Yu Hui, she went to the makeup room to prepare for her makeup photos.
As she passed by Su Yaya’s side, she looked at smiled at her, nodding.
Su Yaya was slightly shocked and hurriedly smiled back.
Chen Yan quickly left with her people.
“It seems like she has a good attitude. It should be easy to get along with her.” Su Yaya said as she stared at her silhouette.
Zhou Peiyun snorted. “Oh please, Miss Su, stop being so pure and gullible. There’s no such thing as getting along with her easily. After you enter the set, be quick-witted and wise. Otherwise, you won’t even know when you’re bullied by someone else.”
Su Yaya blinked her eyes and said oh. She silently took out her phone to search the entertainment gossip about Chen Yan. Quickly, she saw users talking about Chen Yan being fake with people under an anonymous forum. She really had no idea until she searched this. When she did, she jumped in shock. There was no such thing as being truthful with people in the entertainment circle.
After a while, the staff came and called Su Yaya to take pictures. She hurriedly gave the phone to Xiao Yu to look after while she followed the staff.
Su Yaya was really beautiful. After changing to the clothes in the scene and pulling her hair into a bun, she was even more beautiful. She seemed like a fairy who would be flying to the heavens at any moment. Plus, she was well-behaved and lively. She posed in whatever positions the photographer had her to do. Her expressions were all on point and the photographer was extremely satisfied. They couldn’t help but take a few more pictures of her.
“Pretty good?” Yu Hui looked at Su Yaya’s performance and asked Zhou Tongguang who was beside him.
“She’s ok.” Zhou Tongguang was embarrassed to admit that he was shocked and enchanted by Su Yaya. Therefore, he gave a vague response. He didn’t expect Su Yaya to be so lively. It was out of his expectations. In the past, he was angry that Su Yaya was shoved into the set by the investor and wasn’t as great as the actress he regarded highly of. He was scared that she wouldn’t be able to express the role to his satisfaction but in reality, he was the one overthinking. Su Yaya had more talent that the actress he was looking for.
How could Yu Hui not know what Zhou Tongguang was thinking when they were like brothers for so many years? He chuckled but didn’t expose his real thoughts.
Su Yaya quickly finished her photos and Chen Yan walked over, in her outfit for the photos. She smiled at her and said, “You’re beautiful.”
Su Yaya hurriedly answered, “Sister Yan is flattering me. You’re also very beautiful.”
Chen Yan chuckled by her bluntness. She said, “You’re very cute. I like you. Let’s go out to eat later on.”
Su Yaya blinked her eyes, shocked but happy. How would she dare to reject Chen Yan? She quickly answered, “Sure!”
“So cute!” Chen Yan complimented her and went off to take her pictures.
Su Yaya went to the makeup room to remove her makeup, then found a place in the corner to sit. She paid attention to the others taking their pictures and held a proper attitude, wanting to learn from them.
Zhou Tongguang sat diagonally from her. His gaze swept past her a couple of times and he watched as she concentrated on other people’s photoshoots, as if she was trying to learn from them. The displeasure he had for her gradually disappeared.
