My Artist is Reborn – Chapter 30 – Former and Present

Xu Anqi is the head entertainer of Menghe Entertainment Company and is also the popular little flower in the entertainment circle nowadays.

She had a palm-sized face, a pair of water-filled eyes that seemed to be talking, milk-like white skin, and there were two small pearl in her laughter. Sweet and exciting, she was a little fairy in many fans’ minds. Although she had a non-academic background, her acting skills were not bad. Just last year, her drama popularity exploded, followed by several major productions, the current TV series broadcast in Beijing Television Station also had very good ratings.

Not only that, but rumors that she had just received the heroine role in a new movie spread, it seems that she carried the ambition of winning the award this year. If she can get the award through this film, it would be a double harvest for her popularity, leaving her with more than enough to become a first-tier actress.

Xu Anqi actually took the initiative to say hello to Ye Cang, and even Li Zihang showed an expression of envy.

Ye Cang, however, was somewhat lazy. He touched the other’s fingertips lightly and took back his hand. “Hello, Miss Xu.”

Xu Anqi did not get the response she expected, and her smile faded a little. She instead turned to Shen Huai behind Ye Cang. “What a coincidence. I didn’t expect to see Brother Shen here.”

Shen Huai looked pale: “Indeed it’s very coincidental.”

Xu Anqi also wanted to say something, but her assistant interrupted her in a hurry: “Anqi, let’s do your make-up first, don’t keep everyone waiting.”

Xu Anqi hooked her lips and left with her assistant without saying anything.

The crowd at the scene was a little confused. Li Zihang looked at Shen Huai. He knew he was Ye Cang’s agent, but how could he have anything to do with Xu Anqi?

When Xu Anqi broke off her contract with Morningstar and transferred to Menghe, there was no big news. Most of the staff who knew about it were inside the company, and no outsiders knew about it. Therefore, although some people in the room saw that Xu Anqi had a different relationship with Shen Huai, they could only make blind guesses.

Ye Cang had already remembered Xu Anqi identity. After Shen Huai joined Morning Star three years ago, she was the first artist he took over. Unfortunately, just after the other party started becoming popular, she was poached by the rival company. It was said that this was a big blow to Shen Huai at that time. Later, he turned his direction and stopped signing actors. Instead, he signed Bai Jiajia, who was still a trainee at that time.

It seemed to be very tragic for Shen Huai. The two artists who he brought out, betrayed him in succession. But Ye Cang always felt the difference between Xu Anqi and Bai Jiajia. When Bai Jiajia appeared in front of Shen Huai, his look was not controlled.

Ye Cang suddenly felt a little uncomfortable. He looked at Shen Huai and wanted to ask, but could not open his mouth.

Shen Huai frowned, seemingly a little distracted, and did not notice Ye Cang’s expression.

Li Zihang looked around and dragged Ye Cang away. “Go to rehearsal!”

Ye Cang: “Wait a minute.” He looked at Shen Huai. “Huai, wait for me in the audience after rehearsal.”

On weekdays, when Ye Cang competed, Shen Huai did not refuse his request, but this time, he shook his head: “I have something to do, I will come back to you later.”

With that, he bowed and left the dressing room.

Ye Cang’s face suddenly sank and Li Zihang, who was swept by his eyes, unconsciously stood up straight. “Well, I’ll go to the studio first and wait for you…”

After he had finished he ran away in a hurry, when he left the dressing room was he regained his mind. He was unexpectedly a coward in the face of Ye Cang.

In fact, Ye Cang’s face is very scary. Although his mouth is poisonous, it’s not much different from other people’s, but at that moment, his expression was really scary…

After a long time, Ye Cang came to the studio. Li Zihang looked at him carefully and found him calm as if nothing had happened.

Li Zihang breathed a sigh of relief, but after a while, he knew he was wrong.

Ye Cang was in show rehearsal and when he faced the opponent, his eyes were murderous. In the end, no staff was willing to work with him.

During the break, Ye Cang suddenly said to Li Zihang “I’ll go out for a while, call me later.”

After that, he walked out of the studio.

Li Zihang did not try to stop him, but sighed helplessly.

He always felt that Ye Cang’s expression was like finding out that his wife had cheated on him and he had caught adulterers. But then he was chilled by his own imagination, shook his head, and threw those ideas out.

After Shen Huai left the dressing room, he went directly to the sky garden in the middle of the floor. Because it was outside, the weather was extremely hot, so there was no one at all.

Shen Huai took out his cell phone and dialed a number.

Just now he saw the email sent to him by his private lawyer, and because things were a little troublesome, he came out and called the other party. Probably because of the heat, Shen Huai unbuttoned the top button.

Just then, there was a movement behind him.

Shen Huai turned his face and saw Xu Anqi coming towards him slowly. He said to the other end of the phone, “I have something to do here, I will call you back later.” With that, he hung up the phone.

At this time, Xu Anqi was totally different from the sweetness in front of other people. She looked cold and skillfully took out a cigarette out of her pocket. She wanted to light it, but she gave up.

She looked at Shen Huai. She paused at his unfastened collar and laughed sarcastically. “You’re still the same as before. You still like to come to this place when you’re in a bad mood.”

Shen Huai frowned: “I am not…”

Xu Anqi interrupted him directly: “You don’t have to deny it, I know it.”

What do you know?

Shen Huai looked at Xu Anqi, who was talking to herself. He felt tired and stopped talking at all.

Xu Anqi seemed to be unaware of his mood and stood next to him for a long time before she asked softly, “Do you remember how long we haven’t seen each other?”

Shen Huai wanted to leave, but he didn’t know what to say to make that possible. He stopped and said softly, “It’s been over a year.”

“Yes, more than a year.” Xu Anqi tried her best to keep her tone steady, but she still failed to restrain her voice, revealing a trace of resentment.

Seeing Shen Huai, Xu Anqi remembered that day when she confessed to Shen Huai full of shyness, but the other side coldly refused her: “Sorry, I like men.”

Xu Anqi is a good-looking girl. The amount of boys who chased her from childhood was too big to be counted. However, the first voluntary confession of her life was rejected mercilessly. Not to mention, after this happened, she didn’t even say anything. Shen Huai threw her away like a virus. 

It was humiliating for her, who had a high level of self-esteem, to think of it.

In fact, Shen Huai was also helpless. He had been cooperating with Xu Anqi for more than a year. He had always abided by his duty, never exceeded his standard, and never thought about how Xu Anqi raised this kind of thought.

He knew that Xu Anqi had high self-esteem and would be embarrassed if he continued being her agent. So he thought of finding a new agent for her, but he had not yet found the right person, and Xu Anqi already knew about it. Xu Anqi was very angry. She did not listen to his explanation at all but instead went to Menghe. The relationship between the two fell to a freezing point, and they hardly exchanged a word with each other.

Shen Huai pressed his eyebrows and felt somewhat awkward.

Xu Anqi looked sideways at him and suddenly asked, “Is that Ye Cang your lover?”

Shen Huai almost choked. He didn’t know why Xu Anqi suddenly thought so. He directly denied: “No.”

“You lied, you let him live in your house, and he made your house so messy, but you still don’t blame him. Don’t you like him?!”

Xu Anqi sneered as if she had caught hold of him. However, Shen Huai refused to admit it and made her very angry.

Shen Huai simply doesn’t know what to say.

Leaving aside the matter of living in his house, Ye Cang made a mess of the room. He didn’t care, but the problem was that he couldn’t control it at all. In the end, he had to make three rules. The public area must be kept neat and tidy. As for his own room, he couldn’t manage it. As soon as the door closes, you are out of sight and out of mind.

But what does this have to do with likes and dislikes?

Seeing that Shen Huai did not speak, Xu Anqi thought that he acquiesced and became more angry in her heart. She directly pressed the unsmoked cigarette into the ashtray and pointed at him and said angrily: “You two dog men!”

After that, she left angrily in her high heels.

Shen Huai: “…”

In the studio, Li Zihang waited anxiously for a long time before he saw Ye Cang coming. He wanted to ask him where he had gone. However, seeing his face, he could not help but swallow the question.

Ye Cang came over as if nothing had happened and asked Li Zihang: “Is the rehearsal over?”

Li Zihang: “That… Well, just after you left, Brother Yu said we’ll all go through a process in a minute, and then we’ll officially record it.”

Ye Cang nodded. “Got it.”

They were preparing to go to rehearsal when Ye Cang’s phone rang. He glanced at the name on it, which made his eyes sank slightly. Then he went to one side to connect the call. “Hello.”

Shen Huai’s voice was steady: “I still have something to deal with. I’ll ask Xue Chengge to come and pick you up later.”

Ye Cang: “What’s the matter?”

Shen Huai: “A little private matter.”

Ye Cang did not speak. Shen Huai asked, “What’s wrong? Is there a problem?”

Ye Cang’s mind turned upside down: “It’s all right, you are busy.”

Shen Huai replied and then hung up.

Ye Cang held his cell phone and gently stroked it for a while before heading back to Li Zihang.

Li Zihang felt a little cold. He pulled his coat: “Then… Shall we go now?

Ye Cang gave a faint “um” sound.

When they entered the studio, the movie crew had just finished their makeup and came laughing and talking from the other direction. Xu Anqi, who was surrounded by the crowd, suddenly turned her eyes and collided with Ye Cang.

Xu Angqi raised her lips and showed a provocative smile.

Ye Cang also smiled coldly, then both of them turned their eyes at the same time.

The intersection of their line of sight was extremely short. Except, Li Zihang standing next to Ye Cang, has been watching all the time, yet no one else noticed it.

Guo Yu just came over and told them what to pay attention to in the process. Then he jokingly said to Ye Cang, “Ye Cang, when you play games, you should be gentle. There are two girls on our side.”

Ye Cang showed a warm smile: “Okay, I’ll try my best.”

Guo Yu shivered and went away.

As soon as Guo Yu left, Ye Cang began to move his neck and wrists. That pair of lazy eyes were ready for war at the moment.

Li Zihang looked at him, and then looked blankly at Xu Anqi, who was also active across the scene. The strange feeling came out again.

What is this sense of past and present vision?!

    Thank you for the update ❤️

  2. Blood

    Thanks for the chapter! ^ ^

  3. Ri Hikaru

    They ain’t dating, because he don’t know if Ye Cang is gay or straight and unlike you, he doesn’t force people who aren’t interested in his gender.

  4. Kaguya Kosa

    Li Zhiang it literaly past vs present ah!
    Thank you for the chapter

  5. Hikarichan_LOL

    IT’S A WAR!! RIP Xu Anqi(๑¯ω¯๑)

  6. Haruki Natsuyu

    Finally he admits his feeling! The only redemption of the woman is making ML admit his feelings and protect MC more!!!!

  7. Kouriri <3

    This is why I sometimes hate the same gender as me. You get rejected, you cry, you get angry and then at the end you act all pretentious as if you even have the right. Stupid c**t die already. 🤬🤬🤬

  8. Kaguya Kosa

    That girl, she have no right to critize Shen Huai! How disgusting! Ye Cang, kill her!
    Thank you for the chapter!

  9. Thanks for the chapter! If one has to wonder why I avoid pretty people in RL, see example upstairs… their sense of entitlement & their brainless followers are too tiresome.

  10. Coco

    I don’t think she is so bad at least at this point in time. From her POV, an agent has hooked up with his charge and brought him into the spotlight. That’s pretty scummy.

  11. eggcorn

    jesus christ everyone fucking chill she hasn’t DONE anything

  12. eggcorn

    “I hate real life women and this fictional woman created to serve an antagonistic function in a BL story is an example” do you even listen to yourselves

  13. eggcorn

    she hasn’t “forced” him to do anything, she was hurt and felt betrayed that he was planning to shuffle her off to someone else like she was an inconvenience (not that he did wrong either, he’s just awkward) when she might have been content just staying by his side and yeah she’s mad about it but she hasn’t used her new position to retaliate against him in any way and she sure as heck doesn’t deserve to be called a “cunt” or told to die, what’s the matter with you people

    1. soup

      agree with eggcorn. People just see a girl rival in BL and everyone goes antagonistic. The girl has not done anything yet, and you go call her names showing what kind of people you are.

    2. Son

      honestly it’s embarrassing 😭 like what in the internal misogyny. wth does gender have to do with not taking no for an answer (have y’all never heard of the concept of a fvckboi?! lmfao)

  14. Ilyusha

    It actually goes both ways. Either men or women, whatever your gender is, no one is actually responsible to reciprocate your feelings when they don’t like you. You don’t have any rights to feel angry or reseful when you are turned down since it is for the a lot better than deceiving you.

  15. Hey

    Homophobic narcissistic bi***!!!!

    1. Tafyun

      Why are ya’ll cursing her so much and telling her to die?? I mean sure she’s homophobic and is a bych but it’s not so bad that she has to die wtf??

  16. Silver

    I see that description a lot in translated novels…. ‘palm sized face’. I can’t help imagining what that would actually look like on a person, and finding it horrifically repulsive. Yet in the context… it’s supposed to be a compliment on their looks? All I get from it is that they have either a disproportionally small head, or a severe cranial deformity compressing their features abnormally. I have to chalk it up to being one of those culturally popular phrases that don’t carry over well.
