Chapter 14 – The Wilfulness Within the Filming Crew
Qiao Lian spent the night sleeping in the living room. The next morning, after waking up and doing her usual morning routine, she looked in the mirror. She realized that even though her face had become less swollen, it still had some faint redness to it.
She couldn’t help but feel slightly infuriated. This slap cannot have been suffered for no reason!
She dressed herself and went downstairs. The caretaker yelled after her, “Mada— I mean, Ms. Qiao, eat some breakfast before you go.”
Qiao Lian was really hungry. She left her cell phone on the living room sofa and walked over. Just as she was about to start eating, she saw Shen Liangchuan walking towards her from outside the mansion.
Most likely, he had just finished working out and at this point, he was using a towel to wipe his sweat away. Even though he was just wearing a sports outfit and white trainers, he still exuded an air of coolness and arrogance as he walked. His face was expressionless, and he went upstairs without even looking at her.
Qiao Lian gazed at his receding figure and couldn’t help but marvel at his arrogance and coldness. Her lips curled. Her mood only became significantly better after she ate and drank her fill.
She carried her bag and was about to head outside when she suddenly remembered something. She turned her head, scooped up a cell phone lying on the coffee table and placed it inside her bag. Only then did she rush out of the mansion to go to work.
Just as she left, a servant walked over to sweep and clean the place. She saw a cell phone lying on the sofa and placed it on the coffee table.
After a while, Shen Liangchuan came downstairs, having just finished changing his clothes. As he passed by the coffee table, he picked up the cell phone lying on top of it. He stuffed it into his pocket and left the mansion.
His manager and assistant were already waiting in the nanny van. After he entered the van, his assistant said cautiously, “Brother Shen, I have already talked to the security officer. From now on, there will be no more incidents of reporters standing in front of your door!”
Shen Liangchuan grunted his affirmation in an indifferent manner. He picked up his script and the interior of the van fell into absolute silence.
Even though he was only appearing in
as a cameo and he was only acting in a few scenes, as always, he was still taking his role seriously.
In this drama, Shen Liangchuan was playing the role of the CEO of a large enterprise. The drama’s male protagonist was in the early stages of starting a business and he wanted to work for his company. However, Shen Liangchuan would not provide him with such an opportunity.
Having run out of other options, the female protagonist Yang Lingsi boldly stepped forward to assist the male protagonist out of love. She risked her life to stop traffic in the middle of the road and by doing so, she changed the male protagonist’s fate for the better.
The scene they were filming today was exactly this scene.
At the film set.
The director was explaining a scene to Shen Liangchuan. He said, “Teacher Shen, later, when you are driving the car, step on the brakes at this spot. You don’t have to drive too quickly. For the zoomed out shots, we will use a stunt double when reshooting.”
“Scene 56, take 4. Action!”
Shen Liangchuan drove a black Lamborghini. He raised his head to estimate the approximate distance, but he then saw Yang Lingsi, who was standing in the distance.
Suddenly, an image of a petite, porcelain white face with the imprint of a slap flashed across his brain. His features grew cold and at the designated spot, he harshly stepped on the accelerator instead of stepping on the brakes.
The car abruptly sped up and headed straight towards Yang Lingsi!
The film set instantly became a scene of absolute chaos.
“Brake! Stop the car, quick!”
“Get out of the way! Jump aside!”
“Skiiiiid!” The sharp noise of a car braking made everybody on set look towards the car with their mouths agape. Shocked, they tried to take in everything that they were seeing.
The Lamborghini had stopped. There was only a 0.01 meter distance between the car and Yang Lingsi!
The entire set fell into absolute silence.
After five seconds, Yang Lingsi felt her legs give way, and she clumsily fell onto the floor. Her entire body was shaking in shock, and her face was pale. Her entire figure looked extremely sorry indeed.
Shen Liangchuan stepped out of the car. His gaze swept over everybody on the set indifferently and only after a long while did he softly mumble out, “Apologies, I mixed up the brakes and the accelerator.”
Everyone else on set: “…”
The director looked at him. He wanted to scold him, but he didn’t dare do so. At last, he could only squeeze out a reluctant smile and said, “Quick, check on Yang Lingsi!”
