Chapter 1151: It’s Important to Know One※s Own Limitations 2
"Why are you here so early?"
"I came to see you," Ni Yang said as he took off his mask and sat down beside Huo Mian's desk.
Huo Mian took a disposable cup and poured him some warm water.
"Slow down, what happened?"
"Sister Mian, please talk to President Qin. I've already recovered. Please don't keep me hanging around like a useless pretty boy. I want to do fight scenes, you know? A couple of days ago, Chen Ziqing, that renowned director talked to Sister Yingzi. He wanted me to act in a tough-guy movie, but Sister Yingzi and the company rejected his offer＃ Oh my god, I am so pissed. I love Director Chen! I want to act in his movie so badly! I don't care about box office sales, but I want the opportunity to transform my image! I'm not that young anymore, I can't keep acting in pretty-boy roles. I need to grow into a man."
Ni Yang rambled on, and Huo Mian knew what he meant.
He wanted to shoot action scenes but his manager and the company wouldn't give him permission.
"They're just looking out for you..." Huo Mian laughed as she took a sip from her own cup.
"I know that they're looking out for me, but I'm already fine now. I keep attending dumb, useless events. I can't even hold concerts! I'm so bored. If this keeps going on, I'm going to go insane＃ Sis, please help me. I know President Qin will listen to you the most. Sway him with pillow talk. Please help a brother out."
"Pillow talk＃ wow, you really went there." Huo Mian was speechless.
The kid did look very lively, so Huo Mian was confident in his recovery. Plus, he didn't show any signs of rejection after his liver transplant.
It seemed like a liver donated by a member of the family was much more stable than that of an anonymous donor.
"I know what you're saying, but as a safety precaution, you have to do a full-body checkup here at the hospital. I also need the surgeon to guarantee your complete recovery. Otherwise, no way."
"Sis＃ that's not necessary, it's too much of a hassle." Hearing Huo Mian's requirements, Ni Yang felt like his head was about to explode.
"It's a must, otherwise＃ no deal." Huo Mian insisted.
"Alright, alright, alright, I'll do it, but only if you keep your word. If I pass all the tests, you have to persuade President Qin into letting me take that movie," Ni Yang stated his terms.
"Deal." Huo Mian smiled.
Then, Ni Yang turned to head out...
"Oh yeah, Ni Yang..."
"Yeah, Sister Mian?" Ni Yang turned back around.
"You＃ has Xie Juan visited you?"
"Her? She came to the neighborhood several times. She had a stupid thermos bottle on her; she said she wanted me to drink some chicken soup. I smashed it and told her off. She never came back after that. She's so fake, god knows why she was so nice to me. Maybe she wanted to trick more money out of me."
"Maybe＃ she really cares about you?" Huo Mian asked carefully.
"She cares about me? Ha＃ don't kid around. Sister Mian, a woman who's never cared about me in the past 10 years, a woman who's not even worthy of being called a mother would never care about me. The only thing she cares about is that child, not me."
Ni Yang laughed bitterly before turning around to leave...
Huo Mian knew that the misunderstandings between Ni Yang and Xie Juan were too deep. If she didn't tell him the truth, it looked like he would never forgive her.
However, Huo Mian had promised Xie Juan that she would keep her secret. Therefore, she suddenly felt very indecisive.
After a busy day, Huo Mian left work at 5:30 PM. When she passed a KFC, she bought a hamburger and cola.
After a quick bite, Huo Mian drove to the TV station.
The agreed meeting time was 7 PM. Huo Mian reached the TV station with 5 minutes to spare. She was always very punctual.
"Mrs. Qin, you're here." Director Wang Xue walked over enthusiastically upon seeing her.
