Chapter 25 – Humble Requests
Carefully cooked seafood was served on the table one by one, and red wine in the goblet gave off an attractive aroma. However, the people sitting on both sides of the fancy dishes did not have the desire to move their chopsticks.
Two people across the table, one was handsome and mature, the other, sweet and gentle. From the perspective of the servers, they were a beautiful pair of young couple.
After the dishes were served, the waiter withdrew quietly, leaving room for them.
Half a minute passed in silence which was fine with Su Jishi as silence was her comfort. Mu Xiulun couldn’t take it anymore and finally blurted out, “Miss Su, my time is very precious, so let’s get straight to the point.”
“Mr. Mu, my time is also very precious.” Su Jishi smilingly said, “If Mr. Mu has anything to say, just say it.”
Mu Xiulun : “…”
Mu Xiulun cleared his throat, a bit stunned by her change in aura.
“Over the past three years, Miss Su and I have cooperated smoothly. Now that the contract expires, we should also consider renewing it.”
Here we go, here we go! Indeed as expected!
Su Jishi secretly touched her weapon, her hand under the dining table hovered over geological hammer held by her leg garter.
This flat-mouthed geological hammer was her first-class good comrade-in-arms, accompanying her up the highest mountains and down the seas of fire She lost count of how many times she had been in the wild. Even igneous rocks would crack when she hit them down with one strike.
Mu Xiulun suddenly felt cold sweat run at his back, he inexplicably shuddering. But he didn’t care and took out the contract from his briefcase then pushed it to Su Jishi calmly.
There are more than ten pages in the contract. Mu Xiulun has already signed the contract in the column of Party A, and the column of Party B was still empty, waiting for Su Jishi to put pen to paper.
It seems … quite normal?
Su Jishi was somewhat curious and involuntarily accepted the contract.
The first few pages are full of complicated cooperation clauses. Su Jishi looked at them roughly and quickly turned to the important parts — the rights and obligations of both parties.
-Clause 8.1.1 [Party A shall provide Party B with five or more film and television cooperation projects and one or more variety cooperation projects each quarter, while other fashion resources and media shall be exposed. When Party B encounters public risks, Party A shall employ a professional team to safeguard Party B’s image]
-Clause 8.1.2 [Party A and Party B have a mutually beneficial relationship and shall not disclose their relationship to the public (except relatives and friends)]
-Clause 8.1.3 [When Party A has social needs, Party B shall participate in Party A’s social activities as a girlfriend and cooperate with Party A’s acts of showing love, and shall not refuse]
[Party B needs to date Party A three times a month] [Party B needs to date Party A once a month depending on Party A’s work arrangement].
-Clause 8.1.5 [Appointment contents shall be stipulated by Party A, including but not limited to holding hands, hugging,
kissing and staying overnight. Party B shall not raise any objection]
Su Jishi: “….”
Su Jishi: “……”
Su Jishi: “………”
She looked suspiciously up from the contract and looked at Mu Xiulun sitting opposite her.
Is this really a business contract?
Although Su Jishi had not seen any other “financial backers”, she could also judge through common sense that normal financial backers would not give such excellent contracts. In this contract, Su Jin had quite greater advantage, while Mu Xiulun paid and contributed, and only got a vase girlfriend in return.
Other female stars found themselves abused by their financial backers by being forced to give sexual pleasures.
Yet, Mu Xiulun was different. He was simply like a father delivered to her sister’s door—not that Su Jishi knew if her father was still alive at this time, she doubted if Mu Xiulun was the reincarnation of her father.
Su Jishi pointed to the lines crossed out and asked, “Are these …?”
Mu Xiulun intervened, “Those are my lawyers making their own decisions. They are not conducive to our cooperation, so I personally had the unnecessary terms erased.”
The most important thing is that too much physical contact will make Su Jin have unrealistic fantasies about him, so he made sure to not give room to this possibility.
Su Jishi was completely unaware of his narcissistic thoughts,in her mind she truly believed that he was just being a gentleman.
The woman’s hands hidden under the table relaxed and removed its grasp from the hammer. She pushed the contract back and said, “Thank you, Mr. Mu, for your respect, but I cannot accept this contract.”
