Song Yimian rushed out of the audition room and was so excited that he couldn’t even walk properly. He ran and jumped in front of Shen Huai telling him the audition results.

Shen Huai listened for a long time before he understood. He couldn’t help feeling that Mr. Guo was really diligent.

Guo Wenyuan didn’t need Song Yimian to do these things. Shen Huai would naturally not let him down. He just encouraged Song Yimian by saying, “You could succeed in the audition because of your own painstaking efforts. Continue working hard!”

“Hmm!” Song Yimian nodded hard, and there was an unconcealed smile on his face. He thought of something and said, “I’ll tell Sister Mei about this when we get back. She will be very happy, too!”

It was not Song Yimian’s first audition, but the meaning of this role was different for him.

It was not only his first complex character but also his first contract. And even more importantly, for the first time he was completely immersed in a character and really got into the scene.

At this point, Song Yimian really understood a lot of the things Chu Mei Bo had said in the past. Before, some of his vague ideas suddenly became clear, and the whole person seemed to gain enlightenment.

When Shen Huai saw this, he asked him to go back first. He stayed and talked to Guo Wenyuan about signing the contract.

The audition from the morning was over quickly and Guo Wenyuan and the crew walked out of the audition room chatting. The assistant had already booked a room for dinner.

When Guo Wenyuan saw Shen Huai, he immediately smiled and said, “Let’s go together… “

Before he finished speaking, he suddenly looked straight behind Shen Huai.

Tang Wanjun was originally complaining to Shen Huai that the fat intestines in the company were not as delicious as those made by their cooking aunt. Then she felt a pair of eyes looking straight at her.

She frowned and looked back, almost startled. “Why is there a ghost here?”

Shen Huai: “…”

He remembered that he didn’t seem to have told Tang Wanjun about Guo Wenyuan, but it was difficult for him to explain it now.

However, when Guo Wenyuan suddenly stopped, Shao Bing and the others felt it was a bit strange. “Boss Guo, what’s wrong?”

Guo Wenyuan returned to his senses, coughed softly to cover up his expression and then said to them, “Go and eat first, I’ll be right back.”

Shao Ning and the others thought that he had something to say to Shen Huai,  so they thoughtfully left first.

The corridor soon became empty, leaving only the three of them there. Shen Huai was about to introduce them to each other, when he noticed that Guo Wenyuan’s expression seemed to be a little bit… shy?

Shen Huai: “…”

Guo Wenyuan walked over quickly, looking only at Tang Wanjun all the time. He didn’t even spare Shen Huai a look. He wiped his hand on his trousers and whispered to Tang Wanjun, “Hello, Miss Tang. My name is Du Yuping. Oh, right my name is Guo Wenyuan now. I am your fan….”

When Shen Huai saw Mr. Guo behave so gently, he didn’t know what to say for a while.

Even Tang Wanjun froze when she heard his self-introduction.

Seeing Tang Wanjun’s expression, Guo Wenyuan thought that she didn’t believe it, and hurriedly said, “The truth is, your song ‘Moonlight’ is my favorite song. At that time, I lived my life day by day and specially bought a tape recorder, so I could fall asleep listening to your songs every day. Even now I have your songs on my mobile phone!”

As he spoke, Guo Wenyuan turned on his mobile phone, showing a list of songs, all of which were Tang Wanjun’s.

Shen Huai: “…”

He suddenly remembered when Tang Wanjun told him that she had been the dream lover of thousands of young men.

Shen Huai glanced at Guo Wenyuan and silently shut his mouth.

At this time, Tang Wanjun had returned to her usual sweet and lovely appearance. With her standard smile, she said to Guo Wenyuan, “Really? Thank you very much.”

Guo Wenyuan’s eyes brightened when he heard the goddess talking to him. At the beginning, he desperately saved money to see Tang Wanjun’s concert. But unexpectedly, just when he saved enough money, he heard the news of Tang Wanjun’s death. He was so sad, he didn’t even eat for three days.

He couldn’t even imagine that he would see Tang Wanjun again in his lifetime. Guo Wenyuan’s brain turned into paste as he stuttered, “I… May I shake your hand?”

Tang Wanjun nodded, smiling more and more sweetly. “Yes.”

Guo Wenyuan stepped forward cautiously and rubbed his hands on his clothes once again before reaching out solemnly, looking as if he had met a national leader.

Tang Wanjun also extended her hand, and Guo Wenyuan shook it gently.

Guo Wenyuan put his hand on his chest contentedly, and then he seemed to remember something. “Shall I prepare some food for you later?”

Tang Wanjun covered her mouth and chuckled, “Then I will trouble you. Just prepare some fruits and light vegetables for me.”

Guo Wenyuan: “OK, I heard that you like cherries best. I’ll send someone to buy a box of cherries for you in a minute.”

Tang Wanjun: “Won’t it be too much trouble?”

Guo Wenyuan: “No trouble, no trouble, as long as you are happy.”

Shen Huai: “…”

He watched Tang Wanjun cover her lips with a gentle smile, while Guo Wenyuan seemed to be happily blowing pink bubbles, making him feel a bit superfluous for the first time.

Fortunately, although Guo Wenyuan became a bit confused when he saw his goddess, he still retained some sense. When they entered the crowd, he stopped talking to Tang Wanjun so as to not attract onlookers.

It was just that, in Shen Huai’s opinion, this was of no use.

Because Guo Wenyuan was afraid that someone would bump into Tang Wanjun he held his hand to protect her, but in the eyes of the people around, this posture was too strange and attracted a lot of gazes.

However, Guo Wenyuan never cared about other people’s eyes, but Shen Huai who already suffered a lot, really wanted to stay away from this man and this ghost, to avoid being regarded as part of this group.

Finally, they got to the restaurant.

Guo Wenyuan especially gestured towards the empty chair and asked the waiter to prepare fresh fruits. He also specially asked for them to be clean.

When the fruits came up, he respectfully placed them in front of the empty chair and mumbled something.

Yu Fan and Shao Ning looked at each other. It looked like Guo Wenyuan’s memorial ceremony to someone. The people from the film and television circle were more or less superstitious. But this kind of thing was usually not done before the shooting. So it was too early now.

Not to mention, while eating, Guo Wenyuan frequently looked at the empty chair and smiled mysteriously from time to time.

After today’s audition, Yu Fan already considered Guo Wenyuan a reliable person, but seeing the current situation, he took back his words in silence.

However, Shao Ning didn’t have much scruples and asked Shen Huai directly, “Mr. Shen, what is Boss Guo doing?”

Shen Huai said expressionlessly: “… Chasing stars.”

Shao Ning and Yu Fan: “???”

 

 

Shen Haui was very tired after this meal. Guo Wenyuan was so irrational in chasing stars that Shen Huai even thought that even if he took out a transfer letter of Guanrui’s shares to him at this moment, he would probably sign it without even reading it.

After finishing the meal, Shen Huai gave up talking to him about Song Yimian’s contract and decided to contact him via WeChat after going back.

As soon as he got in the car, he heard Tang Wanjun in the back seat breathe a long sigh of relief.

“I let myself loose for so long that I almost got used to pretending to be unaccustomed to it.”

Shen Huai: “…”

He said, “You don’t have to be a public person anymore, so you don’t need to wear a mask anymore.”

Tang Wanjun’s hand on her shoulder froze. She looked down at herself and suddenly laughed at herself. “Yes, I’ve already left the stage, why pretend?”

Shen Huai didn’t speak.

In order to make it in the highly competitive Hong Kong entertainment industry, Tang Wanjun could only wear this sweet and lovely mask and be “the queen of love songs”.

Even if she wanted to, she couldn’t relax in front of others. As time went by, she was no longer able to take off her mask. As long as she appeared in front of others, she would wear it subconsciously.

Or to some extent, it had become a part of Tang Wanjun’s character.

Just then, Shen Huai heard a knock on the car window. He rolled down the window and saw Guo Wenyuan handing him a box of cherries. “This is the box I just asked someone to buy. It’s still very fresh. Take it back for Tang… well, you can eat it together.”

Shen Huai: “…”

Guo Wenyuan squeezed half of his head in and said to Tang Wanjun, “Miss Tang, I will go back first. If you need anything, please let me know.”

With a reserved smile, Tang Wanjun didn’t say anything.

Guo Wenyuan was satisfied, and then he said to Shen Huai, “Brother Shen, a word.”

Shen Huai: “…”

This “Brother” almost made Shen Huai choke on saliva. Guo Wenyuan said something shocking again, so he had no choice but to get out of the car and walk aside with him.

Guo Wenyuan said to Shen Huai, “Brother Shen, please take care of Miss Tang in the future. She has a quiet and gentle personality and loves literature and art. These years, as a ghost she had no one to rely on. I don’t know how she got through it. I feel very sad when I think of it. If she has any requirements, you must tell me so I can make her happy…”

Shen Huai: “…”

At last, he finally knew what a mother’s filter was.

He suddenly wanted to tell Guo Wenyuan the truth. In fact, your goddess is a woman who likes eating fat intestines and watching horror movies. But the last glimmer of reason stopped him.

After all, as an agent, he knew all too well what a tragic thing it was for an idol to collapse in front of their fans.

He should let Mr. Guo keep his last fantasy for now.
