Dou Weir turns silent after hearing Ye Qing Xin’s words.
“I think about it over and over. Do you remember that I have an old friend that worked as an assistant for Jiang Xiao Luo’s makeup artist?”
Ye Qing Xin thinks about it and replies: “Yes.”
“Yesterday I asked her about ti and she said that Jiang Xiao Luo also joins that movie with Shi Ying. The male lead is Liang Jun Chao. There’re also several other popular actors and actresses. It has been invested for nearly twenty million Yuan. Directors, editors, are all famous people in industry…..”
Ye Qing Xin understands Dou Weir’s meaning. She asks: “So?”
“A group of famous actors and actresses, famous directors, great editors and writers, great investment. That movie has received a great attention even though it hasn’t started to shoot……”
Ye Qing Xin is silent.
Dou Weir says again: “Xin Xin, I want to go and try….. if I am successful, maybe I can break away from my current condition. If I failed, then I’ll just waste my time. Xin Xin, what do you think…..”
Ye Qing Xin says directly: “If what you said to me is real, then I’m afraid that a lot of people will fight madly for second-female role. There’s a lot of people in entertainment industry, how can it be yours if you are a newbie?”
“I asked my old friend. She said the role is more special. The director loves to find fault. He hasn’t found the one that he likes. She also told me that the director started to hesitate to look for the newbie.”
Ye Qing Xin looks at the window, the sky is blue.
Dou Weir keeps on talking: “I also feel that there will be a really small chance. But I just want to try. If I fail, then I’ll just let it go. I don’t lose anything.”
“Since you know that it’s low chance, then why should you try? Moreover I also feel that Shi Ying…. is not a good person. What if she plans something for you, you’ll be easily attacked by her.”
Dou Weir laughs: “Attacked by her? Can she beat me? Moreover, before you be together with Jing Bo Yuan? Didn’t you think it’ll be low chance to be with him? Now you are be with him and be a glittering phoenix?”
Ye Qing Xin suddenly turns speechless.
Dou Weir realizes her careless remark and apologizes: “I’m sorry Xin Xin. I don’t mean that way. I mean that everything is possible, I…….”
The atmosphere turns stiff.
After a long time.
Dou Weir apologizes again: “Xin Xin, I’m sorry…..”
Ye Qing Xin takes a deep breath and smiles: “If you want to try, then go try. I understand that you want to break away from your current condition but you need to be careful with Shi Ying. If you cannot do it then don’t force yourself. Hurry up go back to school. A woman shouldn’t drink out a lot of alcohols. Also if something happened, remember to call me.”
“Okay, don’t say it anymore. Send me things that you want to buy. I’ll go and take a look in the afternoon. I’ll hang up first.”
Ye Qing Xin just hangs up and stares blankly.
It’s not only stranger, the people beside her should be feeling that she be with Jing Bo Yuan is out-marry.
But it’s truth, but she feels that it hurts more than a stranger says that to her.
Ye Qing Xin stands up and walks toward the window. She looks at the scenery.
Okay, maybe this is too high, so she couldn’t blame them to think it that way.
Her phone rings once.
It’s a message from Dou Weir. She lists things that she wants Ye Qing Xin helps her to buy. It’s mostly cosmetics.
She also sends another chat: “Xin Xin, before I had a loose tongue. I’m sorry. Don’t be angry. Actually I think that you are really suitable for Big Boss Jing. At least you are younger than him!”
Ye Qing Xin laughs and replies with smiley emoticon.
A maid knocks at her door.
“Mrs, it’s lunch time.”
Ye Qing Xin puts away her phone and stands up. She nods.
The time she eats her lunch, her phone rings.
She takes it out and looks at the screen. It’s an unknown number.
Ye Qing Xin swallows her food and answers.
“Xin Xin.” It’s Gu Qiao’s gentle voice.
Ye Qing Xin is unexpected of it. She asks: “Qiao Qiao Jie?”
“You don’t expect me to call you right?” Gu Qiao’s voice is somewhat witty. She laughs and explains: “My grandma has your number.”
Ye Qing Xin just gets it.
“Is there any problem?”
“Can’t I call you if I have no problem?” Gu Qiao pretends to be unhappy: “Xin Xin, do you hate me?”
Ye Qing Xin: “No.”
“I’m joking with you! I just want to ask you whether you want to stroll around Tsim Sha Tsui? It’s too boring for me to stroll alone….”
Ye Qing Xin smiles: “Okay.”
She also feels unfamiliar about Hong Kong, previously she wanted to ask the butler to have one maid to accompany her stroll around. Gu Qiao also seems to familiar with Hong Kong.
“Where do you live? I can pick you.”
Ye Qing Xin: “…. No need, we can just meet up at Tsim Sha Tsui.”
Gu Qiao’s voice is so cheerful: “Okay, then I’ll go now. See you.”
“Em, see you.”
After the call ends, Ye Qing Xin bits her lips and looks at her bowl. Then she asks the butler: “That… what is the address of this house?”
The butler smiles and tells her the address.
Ye Qing Xin nods: “In short while, I will go to Tsim Sha Tsui.”
The butler: “Now I will help you to prepare the car.”
After eating several scoops, Ye Qing Xin puts down her chopsticks. She goes to the restroom to brush her teeth and tidies up her tie. She then changes her shirt and skirt to white t-shirt and jeans.
She thinks that it’ll be more convenient to wear casual cloth to stroll around. It’ll be troublesome to wear short skirt.
The butler is waiting for her in the lobby: “Mrs, the car is ready.”
Ye Qing Xin smiles: “Sorry to trouble you.”
The butler: “Mrs, don’t be too modest.”
The blue car is waiting for her outside. The driver opens the door for her to get on the car.
Ye Qing Xin gets on the car. The car starts to move to Tsim Sha Tsui.
After quite some time.
Her phone rings.
Ye Qing Xin answers it.
“Xin Xin, where are you?”
Ye Qing Xin looks around and she couldn’t recognize the road. She covers her phone and asks the driver:”Where are we?”
The driver tells her the name of the area.
Ye Qing Xin tells Gu Qiao what the driver told her. Gu Qiao is silent and says: “Later on you can just come directly to Harbor City. I’ll wait in the entrance door.”
They both end the call.
Ye Qing Xin saves Gu Qiao’s number in her contact list.
After forty minutes, Ye Qing Xin finally arrives at Harbor City’s entrance door after asking several people.
Gu Qiao notices her and looks at her appearance. This girl is wearing the simplest t-shirt and jeans. She also wears a white sneakers. Her simple appearance couldn’t cover up her sexiness.
Gu Qiao regains herself again and smiles brightly. She glares at her to blame her: “you make me wait for so long.”
Ye Qing Xin walked so fast before, she still shorts of breath. “I couldn’t find this place. I asked a lot of people….”
She then looks at the necklace on Gu Qiao’s neck and she is startled.
Gu Qiao is dressed up in a navy blue dress. Her hair is curled and part of her hair is styled in bun.
She is wearing the pink diamond necklace that Madame Chang gave to her.
The time she remembers that Gu Qiao spent a lot of money for it, she feels somewhat guilty and embarrassed.
Gu Qiao doesn’t know about it and she just hugs her arm and smiles: “Looking at how tired you are. I am sorry. Let’s go. Let’s get in.”
Ye Qing Xin smiles and nods. She couldn’t resist to look at her necklace.
Gu Qiao notices it and asks her: “This is pretty?”
Ye Qing Xin smiles: “Pretty.”
Gu Qiao smiles: “I really like this necklace.”
Ye Qing Xin smiles awkwardly. She spent a lot of money for it and how can she not love it?
Harbor City is one of the biggest shopping center in Hong Kong.
It has a lot of high-end brands.
Gu Qiao takes Ye Qing Xin to the part of high-end brands. Gu Qiao is also a shopaholic. Less than an hour, she has brought a lot of shopping bags. Ye Qing Xin also helps her to bring it.
“Why you don’t buy anything? You don’t like anything?” Gu Qiao says and looks at the store that sells man’s watch. She directly pulls Ye Qing Xin inside.
“I want to buy my Pa a watch, Xin Xin, do you want to buy one to that mna?”
Ye Qing Xin remembers that Jing Bo Yuan always wears a same steel watch. She has around seventy million in her card, it also his effort.
She is pondering and looks around. This brand’s style is more dignified and formal. It’s should suitable for Jing Bo Yuan, the great businessman.
“How about this?” Gu Qiao also looks around then she comes close to Ye Qing Xin. She points at a black steel watch and asks Ye Qing Xin.
Looking at how silent Ye Qing Xin is, Gu Qiao asks the sales assistant to take it out: “Take this out for me to see.”
Gu Qiao has a great taste. That watch is really suitable for Jing Bo Yuan’s style.
Gu Qiao says to her: “This watch should be suitable for your man, what do you think?”
She looks at it but she declines to comment. She just lowers her head and looks around.
The sales assistant: “Miss, your taste is really great. This our newest collection. It is really suitable for successful man. You should want to give it to successful man.”
The sales assistant is good at talking.
Gu Qiao smiles and points at Ye Qing Xin. She explains: “Not me, it’s her that want to give it to someone.”
She asks: “How much is this?”
The sales assistant notices that Ye Qing Xin just wears an ordinary clothes, she doesn’t look rich.
But she answers Gu Qiao in gentle voice: “210000.”
Gu Qiao smiles: “Not expensive. Xin Xin, if not you can buy this one. It’s just 210000. It is suitable for him, though he needs to make it do.”
Ye Qing Xin is hesitating. But Gu Qiao thinks about something and comes closer to him: “If you don’t bring enough money, I can help you to pay it first. Later on you can pay me back. He should be happy to receive a gift from you.”
