My Artist is Reborn – Chapter 40 – The Second Artist

The ward was quiet for a long time, Shen Huai asked, “How would you like to cooperate?”

Chu Mei Bo said: “This little girl’s life experience is somewhat pitiful. Her mother died early, her father was unkind, and she met a stepmother who loved to sow discord. She was robbed of everything she had, and forced to marry, in the end she chose to commit suicide under all this despair…”

Chu Mei Bo talked about several things from Chu Chu’s memory, and Ye Cang and Shen Huai’s faces showed repressed anger.

Ye Cang punched the wall: “This man is really disgusting. You shouldn’t let him go so easily just now! At least give him a good beating!”

Shen Huai was relatively more rational, murmuring: “You want to cooperate with me, your purpose is not only to take revenge against this family?”

“Yes.” Chu Mei Bo said, “I took over her body and promised to take back what should have been hers, so I hope to rely on Mr. Shen’s strength. And in exchange, I’ll be your artist. How about that?”

Shen Huai paused. To tell the truth, he was a little moved.

There is no doubt about Chu Mei Bo’s acting ability, but it is her ability that makes Shen Huai hesitate. He only have Ye Cang as an artist, and most of his resources are concentrated in the music circle. The resources for film and television circles need to be re-accumulated. Moreover, these two are so capable, that he is afraid he will not be able to take care of them at the same time and will affect them instead.

With this in mind, Shen Huai politely refused, “You think too highly of me. I’m just an ordinary agent…” 

“Ordinary?” Chu Mei Bo smiled lightly. “I have seen a lot of people, from the president to a peddler, and Mr. Shen has a temperament that no ordinary agent can have.” 

Shen Huai paused, stopped avoiding and said directly, “I don’t have many resources in the film and television circle, I’m afraid it will delay you.”

Chu Mei Bo chuckled, “I’m afraid it’s not just about me.” 

Ye Cang: “Well, don’t talk about it when you seen through it.”

Shen Huai: “…”

He ignored the jokes between these two people, and since Chu Mei Bo said she was not worried, Shen Huai stopped talking nonsense and said directly, “What do you want to do?”

Chu Meibao raised her eyebrows: “Is this a yes, Mr. Shen?”

Shen Huai nodded: “Yes.”

Chu Mei Bo laughed and her voice became much lighter. “Junior Shen, don’t worry, you will never regret this choice! In the future, I will not call you so formally, you are one of our own own people, you are welcome.”

Shen Huai: “…”

For a movie queen, identity can be changed quickly enough. Before it was “Mr. Shen” and in the twinkling of an eye he become her own “Junior Shen.”

Shen Huai hesitated for a moment and asked, “What are you going to do next?”

Chu Mei Bo said, “Thanks to today’s show, this couple probably will not dare come to me anytime soon. I didn’t have time to stay here and spend it with them. The medicine should be given bit by bit and the things should be returned bit by bit.”

After listening to Chu Mei Bo’s plan, Ye Cang shivered: “So ruthless?”

Chu Mei Bo seemed to smile without smiling: “There is one more ruthless one, do you want to hear it?” 

Ye Cang saw the fleeting murderous spirit in her smile, and suddenly remembered that during the war, this sister had killed people, taking away the other person’s company and wealth, it really was considered very “gentle.”

Ye Cang made a quick decision: “Sister!”

Chu Mei Bo: “Ah…”

Shen Huai: “…”

Shen Huai suddenly asked, “Are your so-called two wills fake?”

They were all deceived by Chu Mei Bo’s calm attitude at that time, but now think about it, if there is a will in Chu Chu’s hands, she would not commit suicide, and Chu Mei Bo wouldn’t need to use his help.

“What’s the importance of it being real or false?” Chu Mei Bo didn’t care. “They have defects in their hearts, and made fake things become real.”

Ye Cang fully understood Chu Mei Bo this time. She became a white eyed wolf without any advantages in her hand but it didn’t affect the way she planned to play.

Ye Cang was convinced: “Sister Mei is so mighty!”

Chu Mei Bo raised her eyebrows and calmly accepted his compliment. 

Ye Cang couldn’t help asking, “What if Huai wouldn’t agree to help you? What would you do?”

Chu Mei Bo said lighty: “That is nothing more than spending more time and thought.”

In her eyes, this has never been a big deal, but the difference is that with Shen Huai’s help, she can save a lot of time. She had a new life, but she didn’t want to waste it on dealing with such things.

Because of Chu Mei Bo, Shen Huai changed his return flight to Zhongjing city to the next day.

Xue Chengge did not expect that when he woke up from sleep, Brother Shen signed another artist. The little girl looked young, but had a great momentum, he was a little afraid to look directly at her. 

When he got off the plane and returned to his residence, Shen Huai realized the problem.

Previously, he and Ye Cang were both adult men so naturally, there was no problem. Now they added Chu Mei Bo it become inconvenient.

He thought for a moment, and opened the door of the villa next door: “You live here.”

This was originally a house prepared for Ye Cang, but since Ye Cang did not live there, let Chu Mei Bo move in.

Ye Cang suddenly realized what it was: “You didn’t just buy this house, so these two were originally yours?” When he finished, he shook his head. “No, we don’t seem to have any neighbors in this area. Are they all yours?”

Shen Huai nodded, not hiding anything: “I like quiet, so at that time I directly bought all the villas in this area.”

Ye Cang: “…”

Suddenly he felt a little lucky. Shen Huai was worried that he will not be able to use modern electrical appliances, so he let him live with himself. Otherwise, the relationship between them would not be as close as it was now.

Shen Huai did not know what Ye Cang was thinking and explained, “I didn’t want to hide it from you, but I never had a chance to say it.” 

Ye Cang took the opportunity to put his arm on his shoulder: ” I don’t care about it at all.”

Chu Mei Bo was calm. She went straight in and said, “OK, the rent will be deducted from my salary in the future.” 

Shen Huai: “No, it was empty anyway.”

Chu Mei Bo turned around and said, “I don’t like to owe people anything. By the way, we’ll sign the contract tomorrow and then you can arrange work for me.”

Shen Huai: “…”

Sister Mei acted fierce, directly saying what she wanted. Originally Shen Huai thought he will let Chu Mei Bo rest for a few days, but since Chu Mei Bo said so, he will not say anything else.

The next day, Ye Cang followed Xue Chengge to shoot the rest of advertisements, while Shen Huai took Chu Mei Bo to sign a contract.

Ming Wei looked at Shen Huai and Chu Mei Bo in surprise. “Actress?”

Because Xu Anqi matter was a great blow to Shen Huai. She thought Shen Huai would never want to sign an actress again.

Shen Huai face remained unchanged: “Yes.”

Ming Wei saw that he didn’t want to say anything more, and no longer asked, the company’s contract for newcomers had a duration of one year, but Ming Wei took into account Shen Huai great achievements and vision in recent years, directly giving a three-year contract.

Shen Huai could not help but take a closer look at her before handing the contract to Chu Mei Bo. 

Ming Wei originally saw Chu Mei Bo’s face was relatively young. She thought that she was just a girl out of high school, seeing there is no other adult around with her and contract will be signed fast. Who would know that Chu Mei Bo not only read the contract carefully, but also carefully inquired about some unclear details, which showed she was very experienced.

While she was looking over the contract, Ming Wei asked, “Where did you dig out this little girl from? She looks young, but has a lot of momentum. How come all these good seedlings come to you?”

Shen Huai: “…”

He also doesn’t know how to explain it, he wanted to say “from hell,” but Ming Wei would probably  directly kick him out of office.

When Shen Huai finished this thought, his whole person become stunned, after all, he never would have said such flat words before, he had indeed learned the bad habits of Ye Cang.

Ming Wei who casually asked, did not expect Shen Huai to answer, after all, picking a good artist, is also part of Shen Huai’s ability. 

However, seeing Chu Mei Bo, Ming Wei suddenly remembered one thing:  “There seems to be news in the film and Television Department recently. A drama from director Gao Di’s hand is about to start filming. They are still looking for actors. I heard that the requirements are not low, and there are many competitors. But If you have confidence in her, you can let her try it out.”

Gao Di is a famous TV director. A few years ago, he filmed a popular drama, which directly turned some small transparent stars at that time into popular actors. He had a good temper and is well-known for using newcomers. If it’s a really pure 24K newcomer, a highly-popular drama is a really good starting point.

But to the just signed Chu Mei Bo this role would be too much.

Shen Huai thanked Ming Wei, but for this kind of thing he still need to ask Chu Mei Bo first.

Chu Mei Bo finished reading over the contract and signed her name.

Ming Wei looked at it and said, “Chu Mei Bo? Is that a stage name?” 

Chu Mei Bo hesitated for a moment, then nodded looking a little nostalgic. In fact, this was her real name, but at that time she was determined to be a movie star, so she broke away from her family and was not allowed to use her real name. that’s why she used her mother’s surname, Gu plus adding a stroke in her own name, to make a new stage name.

At that time, she had been working hard to get the recognition from her family and wanted to use her real name with dignity. Who knows that after so many years, she was finally able to use her real name, but her family was long gone.

After signing the contract, the two of them went back to the car. While Shen Huai was driving, he conveyed the news Ming Wei told him to Chu Mei Bo.

Chu Mei Bo: “Gao DI? Immortal drama?” 

Shen Huai: “Well, Gao Di is a good director, the atmosphere of his crew is also very good, and his drama ratings are also guaranteed, but… The plot is a bit too simple.”

It is too simple and a little tactful. To be exact, it’s silly and sweet to the extreme. It is a kind of TV drama that makes people exclaim while chasing after each other.

Chu Mei Bo frowned and thought, “I seem to be familiar with this name…” As she spoke, she took out her cell phone to search.

Shen Huai looked at it, quite helpless, it was only a few days, and even legendary movie queen failed to resist the power of mobile phones, and quickly become proficient in its usage. 

Chu Mei Bo checked it up, then suddenly realized: “I remember this director, I watched his TV drama…”

When Shen Huai heard the words, he said: “If you don’t like it, we can pick up another…”

“I don’t dislike it.” Chu Mei Bo looked at him in surprise. “I think it’s interesting.  It’s an audition, right?” When?” 

Shen Huai: “…”

Shen Huai: “All right, I’ll ask the Film and Television Department for the audition schedule.” 

Chu Mei Bo: “Then it is decided.”

She thought for a moment, then added: “When the audition is over, find me an assistant, so Ye will not show this lovesick expression when you will need to come with me, it’s ugly.”

Shen Huai: “…”

He said helplessly, “You misunderstood, we really are not…”

Chu Mei Bo smiled: “Don’t be shy, just be big enough to talk about love. How big is it?”

Shen Huai became more and more helpless, and felt the need to clarify: “Sister Mei, we are not in the kind of relationship you think. I won’t fall in love with my own artist. It’s an agent’s work ethic.”

Chu Mei Bo gave an “Oh” sound.

Looking at her smiling look, Shen Huai felt he only punched on the cotton, full of powerlessness. He felt it was necessary to correct this historical misunderstanding of the legendary movie queen, Is this filter too thick? !

At this moment, Shen Huai’s phone suddenly rang, it was Ye Cang calling.

Chu Mei Bo: “Tsk tsk, Ye Cang is really too impatient. It took so little time to make him call.”

Shen Huai: “…”

He put Chu Mei Bo’s ridicule aside, and answered his phone.

However, as soon as it was connected, came Xue Chengge anxious voice.

“Brother Shen, it’s not good, there are people on the Internet blackening Brother Cang!”
